5:09 pm
democrats and republicans. >> and we will continue to hear from both sides of the aisle, lets continue to keep the ball rolling and check on the convention floor right now with our natasha brown, natasha. >> reporter: we are here on a bustling convention floor right now, standing we have allison young, who is a former advisor to president george w. bush, and also, darryl clark, president of the philadelphia city council, just a couple of questions. yesterday, heavy hitters brought out by vice-president joe biden, president obama trying to seal the deal to make the case for clinton to be president. coming off those speeches, what can we expect to hear from her in her own word. >> president obama made a great case for his own legacy but he didn't do any favors for hillary clinton trying to reach out to new voters. that is what we need to hear from her tonight. we heard what has been democratic message, what has gone on last eight years. she needs to separate herself and say she's what will happen next. for all those voters that feel like they have been left behind for over last eight years. >> it sound like there is a double standard.
5:10 pm
people are criticizing hillary clinton because she was with president obama, next breath, they are saying, well, it wasn't really hillary clinton it is only president obama. i think this is like the super bowl, speaker after speaker threw the ball down the field, hillary clinton has it ted up to go over the goal line and that will happen tonight. >> reporter: we know that her daughter will be introducing her, chelsea clinton, she did a huge part of this campaign, and there is expecting her to personalized her mother like no one olds obviously could. is that what will happen, heart warming stories. >> i think it is a personal touch. as much as people see politicians they don't understand that these are real people. these are families. they are people. i think that along with bill, but having his daughter puts icing on the cake, and personalized and get rid of the characterization that some have the on republican party has had over hillary over the last couple of years. >> do you think it will do her justice to have her daughter there. >> it is important to for her
5:11 pm
family there that they are unified, it is important that chelsea clinton is here and mom of the daughter i think it will be a proud moment for the candidate herself. historic moment tonight we have to recognize that. >> she has a huge steaks tonight, skeptical voters out there that have issues, trust issues with secretary clinton, are you expecting her in some way, to try to gain their trust tonight. >> well, first of all we have to gain trust of the bernie sanders people and that is happening. you can see difference between first day and today. as we moved through the process people understand that hillary clinton is one of the consummate public servants and people will feel more comfortable with her having her hand on the button but walking the streets of the united states of america, taking care of real problems for real people. >> i disagree with that a little bit. there is still tension. i still see sanders t-shirts around and sanders banners. i think the goal for clinton campaign tonight toys reach out to those vote their may as i save been left behind over last eight years and just see this as a tip ways of what has
5:12 pm
been going on during the obama administration. she need to separate herself and lay a plan for the future instead of talking about what has been done. >> thank you both, very much for joining us. we appreciate. that we will continue to gauge reaction here on the convention floor at the wells fargo center, throughout the night. that is very latest for now reporting live, natasha brown, for cbs-3 "eyewitness news". now back to you. >> natasha, thank you. cbs news is covering the democratic convention, right down to the closing moments tonight, "cbs evening news" with scott pelley will be live from the wells fargo center at 6:30 and cbs news will continue prime time coverage starting at 10:00, followed by "eyewitness news" right here on cbs-3. well, some strong thunderstorms moved through the city, we just made it in. >> we were rushing inside here not to get rained on. >> i'm's hearing reports that the media tent mighting flooding a little bit. >> this is serious. >> the threat not being over lets go to meteorologist kate bilo with more on where things stand right now.
5:13 pm
>> we do have more rain still to come tonight, and through the overnight hours even into tomorrow morning. the showers and storms have moved through this afternoon. there is a lot more where that came from and all streaming from the south and west. heaviest storms are south of philadelphia, over new castle county delaware, cumberland county, new jersey. we have a few stronger storms in berks county, and they are producing frequent dangerous lightening especially this one over new castle county but those torrential downpours. we saw that on monday evening. that is what you can expect again this evening. scattered strong thunderstorms biggest threat to the south this evening, downpours, slow travel and those strong wind gusts. we have flood advisories, including portions of delaware county, portions of the city right on through delaware and south jersey, also still under a severe thunderstorm watch and that goes until midnight for vast majority of the area this is not over. the it could continue into tomorrow morning. coming up we will tell but a flash flood threat that continues right through noon tomorrow. for now, ukee and jessica, back to you.

5:20 pm
was dry for torey but not for long. we have rain heading for the shore at this moment. we have ball spinning before the rain came through. it has tried out in center city, we had torrential downpours right around 3:00 now we are in the lull, lets go down the shore as well and still some people on the beach but it is starting to look a little overcast in ocean city and everyone starting to move off the shore that is probably a good idea because take a peak at storm scan three which shows rain is moving in. right now moving through atlantic county, cape may county quiet but showers and thunderstorms are heading that way. we have a break in the action here over philadelphia but we have a lot more to get the through overnight and into tomorrow as well, and doppler estimated rainfall totals in the past 24 hours we can see heavier rain over northern delaware and south jersey, salem, cumberland counties. few little bulls eyes of red this indicating mere four inches of rain, three to four inches, we have had one report of someone in delaware
5:21 pm
with 3.87 inches recorded in that spot. very heavy rain off to to the south today and we have got more to come, through tonight, and into tomorrow morning. so your storm threats for tonight a high list being for heavy rain, high risk for strong wind as well. moderate risk for lightening. moderate risk for hail and tornado risk is very low with the set up of these storms. lets talk about the flood threat. these then are storms will have heavy rainfall. one to three inches of rain and that can come in a short period of time. it will pile up quickly. you will get poor drainage flooding. any area prone to flooding and if you know the street you drive down gets flooding on the right-hand side, expect thaw will see it as we go through tonight. do not drive through flooded road. it does not take much to pose a potentially life threatening situation. we will talk about those risks coming up as well. we are under a a flash flood watch until noon time tomorrow , and only good news is we have 95 degrees today in philadelphia now 75. the rain has really put a dent in our heat. that should mean, our heat
5:22 pm
wave has come to an end. but with all this humid air moving through our unsettled pattern lasts right through monday, a slow moving front, bringing in lots of moisture bringing in lots of uplift, and we have threat for thunderstorms in the forecast every day. heavy rain possible still tonight into tomorrow morning. thunderstorms redevelop late saturday overnight into sunday temperatures in the mid 80's but still humid and still wet, coming up in the seven day i'll tell you when we will clear it out, and get seasonably warm but dry day, that is something to look forward to for now, ukee and jessica, back to you. okay, kate thanks very much. still to come on "eyewitness news" tonight nothing like jersey fresh produce. >> one of the favorites is farmly on farm stand and we will tell you just how much you can expect to pay for your new jersey tomatoes coming up, don. the philadelphia eagles are in fact stronger together. full squad is here, they have practiced for the first time, we will have an update

5:35 pm
president obama spoke last night. when he gave his remarks he painted this picture of america, that is positive, that is moving in the right direction and he says that is in contrast to a picture he said donald trump is painting, much darker, more pessimistic. do you agree with that characterization. >> i know because polls say that americans feel very on edge, that personal safety is threatened. that is a real iron you. despite economics we could go through numbers i won't game you with that but the big, number one task here, was to try to make the sale as i said last night that this party is interested intacteling isis, defeating terrorism. only person that drove that home last night would be dangerous from donald trump, joe biden. joe biden, in my opinion, should have been the nominee and had he been he would have run a way witt. >> he got a rousing response here last night. >> yes. >> lets talk about another speaker from last night and former new york mayor michael bloomberg who has run as an
5:36 pm
independent and a republican. often said he was a democrat before all of that. >> right. >> he made the pitch that listen, i don't agree with hillary on everything, and he said he was a republican before but that she is i think the word were sane and competent that he used, what did you think about that. >> i don't have a lot of time for people that party flip and flop and i think the house kind of suggested the same. maybe they weren't hostile it wasn't most loving embrace no one knows where michael bloomberg stands any given year politically. i don't lend credence to what he has to say to be very candid. >> what about the person at home who is maybe an independent. these are party faithful. at least sanders supporters, maybe people that are not as receptive to that message as to someone hoist an independent, what do you think >> did michael bloomberg make that sale. >> yeah. >> no, not to be redundant but i think joe biden was a guy who probably sounded most like trump, if you are trying to cut into that working class blue collar segment of the
5:37 pm
population the only person that matches trump, in my mind is joe biden. i think the speakers so far, mrs. obama, president obama, joe biden, have been so stellar, corry booker the bar has been raised so high. >> it is a high bar. >> mrs. clinton has struggled with this format. she admits it herself. big speeches, you know, kind of these big celebration moments she doesn't always rise to the occasion. i'm curious to see if she gets excitement level backup where they left it last night. >> we will see what happens. >> we will see. >> thanks very much for being with us. >> been a pleasure. >> thank you. the american muslim democratic caucus, held its dnc election today. >> "eyewitness news" was at the convention center. group says it will be actively working to assure a hillary clinton victory in the fall among those attending reverend jesse jackson. >> the world must be one big place for all, racial and
