>> sky force 10 is heading to that breaking news. all southbound lanes of 95 are closed approaching the commodore bridge, there's an accident, we understand, as well as a car fire. so far we haven't heard of injuries just yet. we'll bring you the live picture as soon as we get it. also tonight, what we can tell you waiting for the rain to stop. historic flooding is still devastating parts of south carolina. right now a broken dam is forcing even more people from their homes. and back here at home, more coastal flooding at the jersey shore and delaware beaches. how neighbors are trying to stay above water and how much longer this flood threat will last. high tide hit just about an hour ago. this is a live look from our camera in cape may. people on the shore have been battling coastal flooding for the last four days. >> even when that flooding subsides, the problems don't go away. nbc 10 delaware bureau reporter tim furlong shows us how shore towns and the beaches are taking a beating.
5:01 pm
>> low lying spots like this one in duey took a pounding over the weekend. if you were here on saturday you would have been about up to your knees in water, easily up to your knees in water. >> reporter: doris is still cleaning up the mess from the storm at her shop in bethany. >> very, very windy, very rainy, salt covered everything, sands everywhere. >> reporter: her shop is okay, her beach is far from okay. the gates to bethany beach are now closed in some spots. this path basically dropped off like a cliff into the ocean below, same deal over the inlet. >> three or four days, totally just gone. all gone. >> some streets are still closed at the delaware beaches, you'll still find ankle deep water in many spots. here you can see the water is pretty calm now, but also still very high and most of the homes along the bay, including the ones here are elevated. the ones that are not, they can still face some water problems, at least for the next couple days.
5:02 pm
kurt came down knowing his ground level house might be under water. >> i thought for sure everything would be flooded out inside, we'd have to rip out the carpets. >> the water was about an inch from doing serious damage. today he even put in a web cam so during future storms he can check the damage before making the trip down here. he got lucky this time, but the most vulnerable spots -- >> the beaches took a beating for sure. >> delaware beaches need major repairs to get them back to normal and ready for the next storm that will eventually come as storms always eventually come. at the delaware beaches, tim furlong, nbc 10 news. let's turn to nbc 10 first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> glenn, we saw much nicer weather inland today. will people at the shores see some relief? >> yeah, that may wait until tomorrow. we have to get the wind to change direction and that will be coming the next 24 hours. still a lot of clouds at the shores you can see in this live picture from cape may.
5:03 pm
the wind not as strong as it was over the weekend and last week. we're still gusting to 20 to 30 miles an hour in some parts of the area, but it's not nearly as strong as it was. remember late last week we were seeing gusts well over 50 miles an hour, close to 60 miles an hour, and persistent. hour after hour, day after day, and that's what kept building up the water and the power of that water is incredible and can do a lot of damage, as you saw. northeast winds still hitting the delaware beaches more than the jersey shore, but as it turns into the northwest, then we're going to be seeing some significant improvement. so the concern this evening, just some minor tidal flooding in the back bays that comes a couple hours after the high tide at the ocean, so we're not quite done with that yet, but we're almost done. then the clouds will be moving out, too. we'll talk more about when we'll be seeing more rain with the
5:04 pm
rest of the seven day in just a few minutes. >> all right, glenn, thank you very much. in south carolina, take a look at this. the governor says the rain is starting to back off, but the danger from this weekend's fast moving flooding isn't over. this is highway 17 in myrtle beach, which remains flooded. officials say more communities may need to be evacuated and more roads closed. drone video shows the devastation in the state capital of columbia. the 16.6 inches of rain that fell yesterday was the rainiest day in one single spot in the united states in more than 16 years. at least nine people have died in south carolina since the flooding began. state officials are asking people to stay in their homes if they can. nbc news has a live crew that was just forced to evacuate because of a dam failure. we hope to get an update from them later this hour. and you might have heard the governor of south carolina say they haven't seen rain like this in 1,000 years, but there is a reason that this is happening
5:05 pm
right now. chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz has been looking into this. he'll explain it for us in our next half hour. meanwhile, an amtrak train due in our area tonight flew off the tracks in vermont this morning. train 55 derailed in central vermont. it was on its way to washington, d.c., with a stop planned at 30th street station. these are photos from the scene. seven people are hurt, one seriously. passengers were put on school buses to take them away from that scene. we're waiting to hear back from amtrak about when those passengers are expected to arrive at their destinations. a woman from our area is accused of injecting her teenaged daughter and another child with heroin. police say jessica lynn riffey of chester county injected the children at her home last month. riffey now is locked up on several charges, including endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors.
5:06 pm
investigators also tell us the teenagers snorted heroin that was supplied by riffey's boyfriend, his name is jamison burn. burn faces drug charges this afternoon. a wave of text messages, that's what led police to five men they say are involved in a drug trafficking operation in montgomery county. investigators say the men sent mass text messages to more than 60 potential buyers. the text messages told buyers where, when, and what type of heroin and cocaine could be purchased. the men set up in hotels. police confiscated 1,100 bags of heroin and cocaine, along with cash, guns, and cell phones. the threat seems to have passed at college campuses around philadelphia. the fbi issued an alert over the weekend warning there could be an act of violence at 2:00 this afternoon, but the deadline came and went without any problems. nbc 10's deanna durante spoke with students today. deanna, how are they holding up? >> students have been warned not

5:08 pm
the fbi says this isn't the first threat it has seen similar threats on social media nationwide. police tell me they are working with area schools and tell teachers and students if they see something, they need to report it. deanna durante, nbc 10 news. a vote will come down later this week on the pennsylvania budget after nearly four months at a standstill. governor wolf is warning republican lawmakers that steep cuts in education will happen if taxes don't go up. wolf spoke today saying the republican plan does not responsibly balance the budget. on wednesday the state house will vote on wolf's plan. >> just the way we've been doing it is not at all honest. we've got to stop it. that's what my intransigence has been about. not about ideology, it's about math. >> we reached out to the house appropriations chairman, his comment says in part, "as soon as governor wolf acknowledges that increasing taxes on middle class families is not always the answer, the budget standoff will

5:19 pm
glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> there's a live look now from boathouse row in philadelphia after several days of cloudy and rainy weather, things have really taken a turn for the better. and we could look forward to some more sunny days ahead. yeah, we had some nasty cold, wet weather over the weekend, but at least joaquin stayed out in the ocean. imagine how things would have been if that had come in after all of this rain and flooding that we already had. we're calming down now. the seas are calming down, the winds are calming down. we're getting more sunshine, obviously, and we're going to be warming up, even from where we were today. we have some fair weather clouds out there now. there's no rain around. 68 degrees in the northeast at 10 miles an hour. 6 degrees warmer than this time yesterday and generally in the mid 60s across much of the area. just barely 60 in mt. pocono. and we're near 60 at the beaches, as well, and those
5:20 pm
beaches need to see the winds shift. hasn't quite happened yet. it's kind of parallel to the jersey shore, but the delaware beaches still getting hit with the northeast wind. the ocean temperature 65 degrees. we still have the coastal flood advisory until 7:00 for southern portions of delaware and extreme south new jersey, generally in the back bays. we've already seen the last of the high, high tide. still some clouds around near the beaches, but nothing compared to what's going on to the south and to the east. there's joaquin out in the middle of the atlantic and there's that gigantic upper air storm that helped creepua eed c disaster in south carolina over the weekend and it continues. and the showers continue. it's nothing like the rain that fell over the weekend, but don't really get a chance to dry out when it's still raining. we have temperatures tonight
5:21 pm
going down through the 50s and into the 40s. and that's going to be kind of cool for this time of the year, but with the sunshine tomorrow we start off bright and sunny, going to start warming up pretty quickly. well into the 60s by 11:00 a.m. and by 1:00 we're in the 70s, which is higher than we've been in a while. remember last week, early last week, it was 85. then it was barely 50 on saturday. there's joaquin way out in the atlantic. still a hurricane, still hanging in there. still over unusually warm water for this time of year. 85 mile an hour maximum winds, new advisory shows the winds moving to the north/northeast at 12 miles an hour. and the computer models take it all the way across the ocean as a tropical system and then it gets cooler waters as it's approaching the british isles.
5:22 pm
that should be interesting. mostly clear and cool tonight, 49 for the low in philadelphia, 43 north and west. then during the day tomorrow, going to be seeing a lot of sunshine. significantly warmer than today, highs getting up towards the mid 70s. and the wind, the direction, that's the key. northwest. it's not coming off the ocean anymore. that was day after day after day of that. then on wednesday it's even warmer. still very light winds. thursday, light winds, not quite as warm, 71 degrees. some showers with a cold front on friday. another warm day. that sets us up for a cooler weekend, but it looks dry and on sunday looks like really good weather for the eagles game. >> hopefully it will help. glenn, thank you. a lot of people play the lottery, but instead of money you could be trying to win liquor. we'll explain next. plus, another devastating
5:23 pm
loss for eagles fans. now frustration is boiling over for the players, too. find out who couldn't hold back their feelings while speaking to reporters today.

5:29 pm
this is nbc 10 breaking news. >> sky force 10 continues to fly over the breaking news that is affecting a lot of people's evening commute. this is why, the accident that led to a car fire and is now
5:30 pm
blocking several of the southbound lanes on i-95. this is happening near the commodore barry bridge. that back up continues, as you can imagine. we'll keep you posted on new developments. again, i-95 south closed to the commodore barry bridge because of a car fire. also tonight, nbc 10 and cape may county where it's clear beaches took a beating from the weekend weather. this is video from ocean city. we found several businesses here still covered by sand bags and boarded up in preparation for what rolled through, but officials think things could have been worse. >> we were fortunate enough not to have any breaches or flooding caused on the ocean side, so the beaches held up, the dunes, they did their job and they kept everything safe. >> ocean city officials say there's no immediate need to truck in emergency sand because a new beach replenishment project here is only a few weeks away. meantime, the state of carolina is reeling after this
5:31 pm
weekend's torrential rain and record flooding. at least nine people have died and while the rain has calmed down, state officials say it is still a very dangerous situation. nbc's jay gray is live for us in the hard hit capital of columbia. >> i understand your crew had to evacuate because of a dam failure. glad to see you're doing okay. what's the latest on that? >> reporter: yeah, keith, jacqueline, what we know at this point is at least two dams have been breach eed here. there were reports of a couple others, conflicting points, still trying to find that out. basically what happened is first response teams moved into the neighborhood where we were earlier, started telling everyone to move to higher ground immediately because water had spilled through one of the dams and was moving towards that neighborhood. it's something that so many thousands have had to deal with across the carolinas over the last three to four days of solid rain, and this is what that rain is doing. this is what the flood waters are creating. dangers like this, you can see
5:32 pm
the roadway here just ripped apart by flood waters, and tore everything in its path away moving down stream. the neighborhoods have been gutted, thousands of families left with nothing but what they could grab and take as they escaped the rising flood waters. it's a scenario that could continue to play out and there's a lot of concerns by response teams and officials here because the rain stopped, that's great news. the flood levels are going to continue to climb in the creeks and the rivers and the lakes surrounding this area. it's a tough battle that's going to continue for quite some time. >> that picture behind you so telling, jay. we are told crews have been moving hundreds of thousands of gallons of water to a hospital in downtown columbia. can you tell us why? >> reporter: yeah, jacqueline, the water system here has been violated. we have breaks in some of the major water lines. many in this area are without water and will be for quite some
5:33 pm
time. they thought at one point they may have to evacuate several hospitals in the area. they brought firefighters in, worked through the night, pumping in tens of thousands of gallons of water. the hospitals that had some water to operate, they are continuing that process, they will sustain it for as long as they can. it's still a concern, though, and it will be, again, like so much here. through the end of the week, that's when mother nature should give them a real break here, when the water should start to recede and when they can begin in earnest clean up and recovery that officials say is going to take in some areas months and others more than a year. >> staggering numbers right there. jay gray live for us in columbia, south carolina. thank you. and south carolina's governor has called this the worst flooding in 1,000 years. >> but there's a reason behind this historic flooding. glenn "hurricane" schwartz joins us now to explain. glenn? >> yeah, people wonder is this the hurricane, is it a nor'easter, is it the warm ocean
5:34 pm
temperatures, is it an extreme pattern in the jet stream? yes, yes, yes, and yes. it's a combination of factors to create this. first of all, here we are. there is joaquin out in the atlantic. there is the upper air mass, the upper air low, but it's up in canada as we've been talking about, gigantic blocking high of blocking area high pressure out in the atlantic and what that does is create this block that prevents anything from moving. it's not just the storm. if it was just a regular storm, it would move, it would get a day's worth of rain and it would move out and that would be the end of it. well, let's take a look at the surface map now. and we'll see once again,
5:35 pm
there's joaquin, there's the nor'easter, but it's the big area of high pressure, watch the wind coming from the northeast. here's wind coming from the east. here's wind around joaquin. coming from the southeast. and this all leads, see this green area? that's what's known as an atmospheric river, so with everything blocked, it forces all the moisture in the same area. and then it doesn't move. left to right, north or south. take a look at more of those pictures from south carolina. and you can see, we're talking about some places 20 to 30 inches of rain over a period of a few days, and that's what can happen. it could happen anywhere if the conditions are right and the predictions were amazingly accurate about this, too. >> and it makes people wonder how much longer things like this
5:36 pm
could continue, when could we be stuck in the pattern and be out of it. >> yeah, it's going to take another couple of days for this thing to ease up and start to move out, but there are certain similarities with the sandy pattern. it was a big blocking high up to the north that was a major, major feature in this. we can't just look at the storm. we have to look at the high pressure air. >> days for it to recede, but months to clean that mess up. >> yeah. there are some places that will never recover from that. >> unbelievable. glenn, thank you. police in coastville, chester county are investigating the city's first homicide in three years. juan jimenez was found shot to death. also tonight we have new details from the courtroom where a contractor is facing charges in the deadly market street
