turning to hurricane joaquin now. people across the massachusetts coast are making sure for whatever the storm may bring, but it could have problems even before the storm gets here. susie steimle is live in scituate with more on the ongoing preparations. susie, you said a one-two punch is possible. >> reporter: absolutely, chris. we're live along the seawall in scituate where first they are preparing for the weekend storm and next they will have to prepare for the potential of hurricane joaquin next week. this is an area that's prone to flooding. if you look at the water, you can see just how rough the seas are. the tide is out right now. it was high a couple of hours ago. we saw some of the highest waters that we've seen at high tide this week because of the super moon on sunday. that should subside. as of next weekend that is somewhat helpful when hurricane joaquin could potentially hit. wind gusts are 18 to 20 miles per hour.
6:07 am
as the day goes on. and they are preparing actively. this is a place that's used to this type of flooding. we caught up with the fire department with what their preps have been so far. >> we are starting our emergency plans now to get resources and logistics that we have to get ready. it may be tough over the weekend to get those resources. >> reporter: as always with coastal towns, the mentality is prepare for the worst and hope for the best. that's what they are doing out here in scituate. they are hoping joaquin takes a sea. we'll continue to monitor the ramps up. susie steimle, wbz this morning. >> all right, susie. we appreciate the update this morning. a second person in massachusetts dead from west nile virus opinion health officials say she's a 90-year- old woman from suffolk county who likely contracted the virus in the area.

6:12 am
welcome back. it's 6:13 on your friday morning. several communities along the coast keeping a very close eye on hurricane joaquin. >> before it gets close to us, we're in for a couple of wet days. danielle niles is tracking it all for us. it has been a very busy week in the weather center, danielle. >> reporter: it has. i'm not going to lie. it's been quite busy. let's start with joaquin. 5:00 a.m. update puts joaquin at a category 4 major storm, just battering the bahamas. it has now shifted and it's making that motion to the northwest very slowly. passing to the west of bermuda, gradually weakening to the category 2 and sailing out to sea north and east. so the track has shifted farther east. there, of course, is that cone of uncertainty. so if joaquin were to back up a
6:13 am
west, impacts may be felt on the cape and islands. the overwhelming trend has been to push joaquin out to sea. we'll watch the track closely but this is great news for the east coast. in the meantime up the coastline, it may feel more effects not from joaquin but the next couple of days with the astronomical high tide. wind gusts between 20 and 30 miles per hour. gusts to 40 and 50 miles per hour possible through the day today and into tomorrow morning. speaking of the coastline, just like yesterday, coastal flood advisory is in effect. 1 to 5:00 p.m. so two hours either side of that high tide. that's when we're talking minor coastal flooding and splashover. meanwhile it is a wet, damp start and it's cool out there. it's only 46 degrees in worcester right now opinion 51 in boston. pockets of rain from the south shore and the cape, too. it's generally light rain that
6:14 am
stretching back down to route 6. the back edge is stretching back towards pembroke, hansen, bridgewater as well. this edge will move northward later on this afternoon. it's not from joaquin but the front that came through a few days ago and stalled our coastline. that is what is responsible for all of the rain up and down the eastern seaboard. we'll be talking about flooding concerns in the carolinas opinion for us, let's time this out. notice the back edge from late to morning. the closer we get to the mass/new hampshire border, we may get cut off from the studiest rain. areas of rain continue at times through the day tomorrow. won't be as widespread. pocket of drizzle, light showers, cool onshore wind. sunday, in the morning we may get a spotty shower but look at the afternoon. not a great day because clouds linger but i think most of the
6:15 am
afternoon and evening on sunday will be dry. that's why it's the pick of the weekend. i wouldn't even be surprised to see a break of sun shane or two as we head into sunday afternoon. so projected rainfall, 1 to 2 inch as long the southeast. this is for today -- along the south coast. this is for today, tonight and high temperatures don't climb out of the 50s. think about it, we're 51 for boston. joaquin makes its closest pass to us late on monday. then the sun breaks out. we go 65 to 70. it looks like a nice middle part of next week. robi, over to you. danielle, accidents north and south of the city causing slowdowns right now. to the north, a crash in andover. the bumper to bumper backup is to route 110. down in braintree a center lane crash 128 southbound just before the split.
6:16 am
route 37 and the split. 6:16 right now. this morning, the nation is once again left dealing with a deadly school shooting. >> rather than blaming our country's gun problems, jon keller says we need to talk a closer look at pop culture in its commentary this morning. >> reporter: good morning. in his remarks last night of the latest atrocities involving a heavily armed shooter, president obamas what viz by asmalled as -- visibly appalled as well he might be. while his litany of disgraceful facts was correct, the president's speech did miss some important points. for instance, while he acknowledged we don't know much about the shooter yet, "we collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones because of or enact." comparing the fair you're to have uniform failure to have unformerly tough laws compared with dangerous roads and protecting people from bad weather. what if this was a terrorist act?
6:17 am
what if the guns and ammo used came from outside of the country? i suspect many would balk at accepting collective guilt at the actions of one der rangeed. the president's frustration of the intransigeance of the pro gun lobby is completely understandable, but i'd lake to hear more perfect him about the violence that permeates our that gun play is fun and murder is cool that oozes out of our video games, movies, tv shows and ipods. the nra may make it easier for creeps to arm up, but popular culture helps propel them from having the weapons to using them. laws are a crucial part of imposing order on a society, but not the only part. the slogan that too often passes for gun violence reform in our country comes from all
6:18 am
across the political spectrum. you have your own opinion on this, i'm sure, and you can share it at large. russia admitting the targets it's bombing in syria are not just isis positions but bashar al asade. some of the rebel groups had u.s. support and weapons. the pentagon and russian military talked yesterday about ways to keep american and russian forces from firing on each other in syria. new york city's documenting every physical encounter it has with the public after the high-profile takedown of tennis star james blake. it coincides with the release of the report faulting the nypd for not doing more to discourage the excessive use of force. the department hasn't given

6:30 am
more importantly, though, they have resource officers working to identify potential problems. >> we get flagged if there's any kind of disturbing writings that occur or if there's something a teacher didn't care about in a classroom. they file these reports and have a computer program that takes that information and recognizes trends. when it comes to safety, they are paying attention to student behavior and staff members or people passing through campus. sadly, they fully acknowledge that no one is immune to this kind of violence. chris, back to you. >> tremendous interesting there. turning to hurricane joaquin now. south shore residents say they are ready for the storm whatever it may bring, but they are dealing with issues before joaquin gets close to us. susie steimle is live in scituate with more on the storm prep. hey, susie. >> reporter: good morning, chris. people here in scituate are just keeping their fingers crossed that hurricane joaquin
6:31 am
continues on its path out to sea, but first, they have to deal with this weekend's weather. if you take a look out at the water, you can see how intense the wind is. just this morning, it's only expected to intensify throughout the day. right now, we've got 18 to 20 mile-per-hour wind gusts that's going to go up as the afternoon goes on. the real risk comes at high tide this afternoon between 1:00 and 5:00 in the afternoon. that's when the coastal flood advisory takes effect. this is an area that has seen flooding many times before. they say they are prepared for it but they also told us yesterday during preparations that they have some trouble because of the heavy winds in the past couple of days. take a listen. >> we probably got 20 boats in a day, but with the wind up, it makes it more difficult, you know? >> reporter: so again, the risk of flooding comes in the
6:32 am

6:41 am
and we're talking about the motion which is the key this morning starting to move to the northwest at 3 miles per hour but very slowly here. make a northward turn and the question becomes, when it passes towards bermuda, it is likely to make a bit of a shift back west and then curve out to sea. the cone of uncertainty is still close to the cape and islands. if joaquin were to take a closer track towards the cape, there would be bigger impacts. we could be talking about rain and wind. nonetheless, up and down the east coast, we're talking about building surf, rip currents and into the start of next week. the overwhelming trend has been to curve joaquin out to sea. we'll keep you posted on that. the impacts of the coastline the next few days are not in association with joaquin. it's the downshore wind we've been persistent with the last couple of days and over 30 miles per hour for plymouth back down to the cape. advisory that is up. we could see gusts as high as
6:42 am
50 miles per hour later on today. particularly the outer cape back down to nantucket and the vineyard. that wind advisory is up until 11:00 a.m. coastal flood advisory is up for 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. coastal residents, you know who you are. you went through it yesterday and you'll do it likely again tomorrow, too, with the onshore wind with the astronomical high tide. start. you are dealing with a little bit of rain. no flooding but we have pockets of wet roadways out there and reduced visibility. plymouth back down to the cape. light rain for the most part. the northern edge of that rain is now south of bridgewater. halifax, pembroke stretching over towards marshfield. this leading edge will make it through late morning and the afternoon. so have the wet weather deer with you. it's all coming through the flooding rain and has stalled in the eastern seaboard.
6:43 am
about the flooding concerns through the mid-atlantic. that's with the stalled out boundary that will sit over the region for the next couple of days. so for us, what does it mean? areas of rain today, not a great end to the week. however, no flooding concerns. just light to moderate rain for the most part. through the evening commute with pockets of rain tomorrow and admittedly not the best looking day. areas of rain generally light, scattered showers, pockets of drizzle. a cool onshore wind. sunday is my pick of the weekend then because of the fact that it should be drier. we may get showers in the morning sunday but look at that. the map is mostly not featuring green on sunday afternoon. there will still be lots of clouds around, bust i wouldn't sunshine. by the way, northern new england has a really nice fall weekend with sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s. so projected rainfall here through the day today, tonight into tomorrow morning. nantucket.
6:44 am
coast. amounts taper off quickly and less than a quarter of an inch when you get back over the hampshire. the weekend. once joaquin makes its closest pass, the sun comes back. robi? the crash on the mass pike is still causing problems. it is a two-car accident on the westbound side in weston after the state police barracks. you can see the box truck off into the wooded area there and towards the bottom of the screen, there is a car now on a wrecker on the left-hand side. we're not seeing major delays there, but on the eastbound side, that is a different story jammed between the framingham service area and the weston tolls. chris, kathryn? our top stories on your friday morning. we're learning more about the shooter in yesterday's deadly attack at a community college in oregon. >> his name is chris harper mercer. he's 26 years old. he died in a shoot-out with police.
6:45 am
nine other people were killed at the college, which is 180 miles south of portland. seven others are wounded. the father of the wounded said the gunman asked who was a christian then shot them. hurricane joaquin is barreling down on the bahamas. it is now a category four storm but could grow even stronger before heading up to the eastern seaboard. the residents in massachusetts are bracing for the storm's possible impact but it looks like all points are heading out east toward the ocean. more questions about the death of a 4-month-old in lynn. an autopsy has not determined the be ay's cause of death. he was found saturday unresponsive at a family shelter and died sunday at mass general. dcf says they can't comment on the case until a cause of death has been determined. straight ahead, the red sox and yankees facing off for the final time this season. >> but who had the last laugh. >> and the big honor for two pats players and why they are
