11:37 am
one just spoke about when they realized there was no the one driving the train. >> it was when everything was dark, everything was stopped, and we were trying to open the doors and we couldn't and we were trying to press the buttons to the emergency room and nobody heard and the people that was on the first car were trying to knock on the door of the conductor and that's when we discovered there was nobody there. >> she said there was no indication when she first boarded the train that anything was wrong. with an initial investigation shows a safety device in the train's cab may have been tampered with. while many of us are enjoying this mild weather, it's too warm to make snow in the poconos. here's a live look at camelback mountain resort. don't see a trace of white there at all. nbc 10 first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here with the forecast. glenn? >> they're not getting natural snow and it's too warm to make

11:40 am
would be a significant step forward from the less powerful atomic bomb, producing a much stronger blast. kim jong-un, north korea's supreme leader, has been on a saber rattling campaign to pressure the international community. last month, north korea staged the biggest military parade in its history, though there did not appear to be any new weapons. while a year ago, computer hackers attacked sony over its movie "the interview," a comedy about a plot to assassinate north korea's leader. the u.s. responded by imposing further sanctions on north korea. so far this morning there's no comment from the state department on this latest north korean nuclear claim. but it's being viewed with suspicion by many experted. just rhetoric, some say, the aim, perhaps, to send the message that the country will not abandon its nuclear weapons and to force the international community to recognize north korea's nuclear status something washington, of course, says it will never do. back to you. >> keir simmons reporting for
