6:47 am
kiddied interviewed maybe year or two ago, browning, he's another of those aspiring tennis players that's number one rang in the pennsylvania; that's correct? >> yes, tahid is one of the top players, another guy jeremy, just got to the finals in nationals, won two superbowls, josh obviously going to temple next year. so we have quite a few kids doing a lot of different good things. >> some special stuff happening here. chris, appreciate the time. chris hill, the director of tennis, jim and brooke, a loft cool things happening here, if you want to brush up on your game i suggest you come down here. >> thanks, pat. katie bit hot today for tennis in. >> definitely scorcher after day. so please take it easy out there, if you must be outside. we understanded if you're a landscaper, work construction, things like, that they take you outside. be smart about it, be sure to take frequent breaks. already off to warm start. highlight couple every these quickly, 57 degrees comes in this morning from david dutch. he's got partly sunny sky, and 88% humidity. another 75 degrees temperature reading comes in from jason this morning, generally full sunshine. but yet great comment: never
6:48 am
been so eager for autumn to arrive. doesn't that sound nice? crisp air. some cider, some football, some tailgating? sign me up. i can't believe i am actually saying. that will because i love the summertime. but to turn to serious note guys, keep in mind heat really can be dangerous. if you're not smart about it. this is a ten year average. and heat believe it or not is the number one weather-related killer, in the united states. we've already seen this particular heatwave turn deadly. i want you to be smart and take care of yourself. as we look at storm scan at nice wide zoom, do still technically have pressure trying to hang on for one final day. cold front scheduled to cross, and as this approaches, what will trigger some additional showers and thunderstorms which could be locally strong, and locally heavy, too, since we have so many american ties. slight risk for severe weather today going to the northern two thirds of the delaware valley, but everyone sits in that risk at least for some heavier storms, especially, later this afternoon, and toward the typical evening rush. one final 90 plus degrees day before we start to see the thermometer dropping, at least little bit, but more
6:49 am
importantly, that humidity start to get wiped clean, as we head toward the tail end of the week, meisha, a we send it over to you. >> all right, katie, thank you so much. good morning, you guys. what we are seeing right now is live chopper three, over and overturned tractor-trailer, possible garbage truck, crews are out here, lawrence township, new jersey, route one southbound at 295. all lanes clearly are blocked. plus, the ramp to southbound 95, you will have to use an alternate. your best bet going to be route 206, swing that around, back to route one, but yikes, look at this, guys, all lanes like i said still blocked there, clearly, that looks like a job in and of itself even just to begin to get that cleared up. so just make note that far this morning, your morning commute if you are anywhere near there. accident here, looks like just cleared, 59 south past girard at the vine. great news for those of you interstate 95 southbound. you get all green. go ahead, jump out there interstate 95. blue route another accident here approaching route one.
6:50 am
uncle see it pulled all the way off to the left. getting some brake lights, gaper delay, as you maneuver around that area. and, also, another accident, 309, northbound at susquehanna. so kind after string of accidents this morning. i would say just overall getting busy out there. give yourself a couple of extra minutes, jim, over to you. >> thanks, meisha a now 6:50, a lot coming up on cbs this morning,. >> gale king joins us with a preview, good morning, gale, how is it going in new york? >> brooke, it is going really hot and steamy here. jim, good to see you again. >> ditto. >> long time since philadelphia, jim. we're going to talk with rob woodward about donald trump's plan to bring back "cold war" tactic fight terror, plus why some families are paying nearly 500% more than they used to, for life saving allergy treatment. yep, 500% more. louisianna volunteers are calling them the cage of navy out there, how they are helping the community during floodingment and we meet up with the s women volley bar

6:52 am
problems, hearing problems, have they had history of concussions? say they want to go and play football. >> we need to know that. also, do they have asthma? you know, we need to adjust medications so they can run that sport, play soccer, play track. so, these exams are very, very important. we can't just assume, because they're young, they're in good shape. a lot of times we catch problems, so we want to re event any injuries, from occurring, or any health conditions during the sport. >> okay, doctor rob, obviously the weather still very warm out. could you breakdown what athletes, parents, maybe coaches should keep in mind while kids are practicing out in this heat? >> you know, it is dangerous, heat load very high. some of the football players are out there with equipment. shouldn't be. when katie says the heat index is 100 above, no one should be outdoors doing this type of activity. but you need about ten to 14 days to acclimate, when you start before a sport. get in shape. with this heat, they should pre-hydrate. the biggest thing for coaches and players, no the warning signs of heat illness. if they get dizzy, if they get a headache. if they get nauseous.
6:53 am
if they start to sweat a lot. or sometimes people believe it or not get chills or muscle cramps, those are early signs of heat exhaustion, get them inside, then there is the 40-ten rule. forty minute of activity, ten minute of a break. make sure we watch it, and we should not be doing two a day workouts in this type of weather. so the best thing to do right now in this high heat work out inside in air-conditioning. and, if they're outside, you know, any pad that they put on, uniforms, that makes it more difficult to sweat. specially in the humidity. so main thing, education, know the signs, if nip of those symptoms occur get them inside, cool them off. >> what about other precaution that is parents needs to be aware of before getting in the game? >> you know, getting in the game, what about equipment? you know, we need to know certain sports need certain equipment. do they need goggles? do they need helmets? what about shoes? you know, cleets are different for football as they are for baseball or soccer or tennis, the proper shoes, make sure the equipment is clean and in good condition. i mean, just couple of weeks ago someone was wearing pads that had a cut in the plastic. well they came in with nice
6:54 am
little cut on their skin. so that's very very important. proper equipment, and the training, how to use it and how to prepare for the sport. >> thanks a lot, doctor rob, joining us. love having in you here, thank you. >> great information. >> now to the olympics in rio. look at this. miller of the bahamas, laying out for gold medal. miller and american allison felix were in a dead heat down the stretch of the women's 400-meter. miller did what she had to do to win that gold. felix was going for her fifth career goal, to bring home the silver. dive stirring up a lot of debate. >> hey, you got to do what you got to do. >> oh, no, jim. >> hey, it is the olympics. we'll be right back with three things you need to know before go. >> three to go next.
