tv   NBC10 News Today Weekend at 6am  NBC  January 24, 2016 6:00am-7:01am EST

6:00 am
right now today the jersey shore is bracing to more flooding. for smrome the damage brought o by the blizzard is just as severe as super storm sandy. a live report is coming up. from the shore to the city, we're also live in fairmount
6:01 am
will residents will be trying to figure out what to do with all that snow out their front door. now to a live look at philadelphia international airport where plow crews there are also doing their work to clear the runways. we know that the airport will resume normal operations gradually today and airlines will be bringing back arrivals and departures. good morning and welcome back to "nbc 10 news today." i'm rosemary connors. it's just after 6:00 on this sunday. we have drew smith in wildwood, lauren mayk in the lehigh valley and michelle grossman is tracking the cold. >> it's a cold start, subpoenas mainly in the 20s. feels like the team it is in most spots. below zero in mt. pocono. so off to a cold start. this is a big clean vup day and we will be cold to start out our day. a live look outside, waking up to just a few clouds. we have lots of snow. as we look at the latest totals, allen town airport number one at
6:02 am
31.7. that was a record for them. 28.2 in malvern and then philadelphia airport coming in at 22.4 puts fourth. and 21.5 in springtown. we're finally dry. the snow has moved out. we'll clean up and clear out today. but we are left over with cold air this morning. 22 degrees in philadelphia. 22 in millville. 18 this allentown, 12 in lancaster. 11 in mt. pocono. hard to get those temperatures up overnight with all the snow over there. winds are out of the north, that's a cold direction. we're looking winds anywhere from 5 up to 16 miles per hour. gusting higher than that in some spots. but even these winds compared to yesterday a big improvement. 16 miles per hour in atlantic city and mt. pocono and 13 miles per hour in wilmington. so today we're looking at a sunny and breezy day. 33 to 36. although we will get the temperature up near the freezing hark, it may even be above
6:03 am
freezing. that will cause some melting which could refreeze later on tonight as we see temperatures dropping back into the teens. so a cold night tonight and then temperatures into the 40s throughout much of the workweek. we're tracking more rain in our 7 day. and then possibility for another coastal storm next week end. but that looks to be off the coast at some point and something we'll watch throughout the week. it's still flooded at the jersey shore this morning and as another high tide is approaching, the concern is more water especially from the back bays that will make its way on to the streets and into people's home. drew smith is live in wildwood to show us the latest conditions. and drew, you were in wildwood yesterday, so you've seen the evolution of this storm. >> reporter: absolutely. and michelle just talking about the wind. yesterday we could barely stand up here. today a huge difference. it's still breezy out here, but if you want to take a look at what the wind has done, you can see the stop sign is kind of bent out of place. the water is down there, as well. the flooding is still in the streets and we're seeing all
6:04 am
sorts of damage across the islands of cape may county. we shot some video yesterday of what the rescue crews were up against as they had to evacuate people from homes because the water came in from the back bay, started to flood a lot of the streets here and eventually started to go inside homes and businesses. several people had to be evacuated on these surplus military vehicle that the police and fire department have down here and they were taken to shelters. we spoke to some people at one of the shelters yesterday. listen. >> it's making me want to move away from the shore, but i love the shore. >> they're under investigation a stress and not happy, they have been forced to leave their homes. >> reporter: damage was
6:05 am
extensive, but we couldn't get over there because the water was still high this morning. so again, another high tide coming up and we're expecting to seat streets fill up with even more water than is here now. i'm drew smith, nbc 10 news. atlantic city electric has the most outages in our area. nearly 19,000 customers are still in the dark this morning with most of them in cape may county. delmarva power says about 300 outages remain in delaware. pse and g, peco and ppl reporting minimal outages. nbc 10 was on east main street early this morning as plows cleared the streets and crews started to dig out from the blizzard of 2016. only essential workers like these crews out there are allowed on the roads this delaware as this cleanup begins. a state of emergency remains in effect across delaware despite the governor's orders, many drivers took to the roads yesterday. delaware state police reported that by 8:00 last night, troopers had responded to 150
6:06 am
accidents. plus another 16 in which somebody was hurt. there were also 260 disabled vehicles littering the state highways. >> i went to turn down here and i got stuck. the snow is just too deep. >> yeah, way too deep. parts of delaware received more than 20 inches of snow which is why coastal flood warning is in effect for the southern part of the state until noon today. storm force 10 has been out on the road this morning. you're looking at the northeast extension of the pennsylvania turnpike where it's pretty deserted. many folks appear to be listening tos the warning from state tisofficials urginging drivers to stay off the roads. the northeast extension of course leads in to the lehigh valley which is where we find lauren mayk to show us the progress made there. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, that video that you were just showing there, we're pointing something out for drivers. as we were going along 76, it
6:07 am
was pretty good and then we hit that patch of snow and potentially ice town there. so things can change quickly. you want to be careful if you do have to head out to work today. let me show you what the roads look like. they have been really working to clear them. we've seen a lot of plow trucks out here, both big ones and little ones. the roads may look clear, but you can see what this snow looks like and you can see what they have been dealing with and how they have been really just moving these huge, huge piles of snow, this heavy snow to try to get it off of these roadways. and let people move around a little bit. we'll show you what we are looking at right here. and give you some perspective of the kind of snow we are dealing with. we have sort of cleared a path here. this is the curb. we want to be safe, we want to know where the curb is. but this is actually how much snow you're dealing with. i could go right down in there and probably a little bit
6:08 am
farther. you can contained can kind of h crunchy sound down there. and you know that it is will heavy. when i pull my boot out, it will be heavy when you pull that snow up in a shovel. so be careful if you are shoveling the snow out there. but rosemary, this is what they are dealing with today. and what they will be trying to clear out. live this allentown, i'm lauren make owiy mayk, nbc 10 news. >> snow blowers is the name of the game. the entire reongion will be digging out today. crews have managed to reclear mt of the major, but it may be a while before we see blacktop on the secondary roads.

6:17 am
the snowplows were able to get on to the sidewalks so that folks didn't have to it get out and remove that snow themselves. if we can come back out here live, we can show you some of the aftermath. you can see the cars that have been snowed in. it will be very difficult for these folks to dig out as the snowplows continue to clear the roads and make them pass able. but certainly did plow in folks in. that's the latest from fairmount. i'm match black mitch blacher. and the shoveling is
6:18 am
difficult. . and they tear they will have to it figure out again when they get up this morning. >> i'm hoping that it's not as bad, i'm not sure. a giant iceberg on top of the car. and i was working on it and i figured let me try this one first, come back. >> and then you'll being a kell that. >> i'm going to try. >> of course today will be a dig out day all over the region. you enter your church sanctuary during the blizzard to find this. yeah. you're looking at the roof of a chester county church that just caved in from the weight of 20 inches of snow. it happened at the calvary fellowship church. several feet of snow poured in through the gaping hole. the breach touched off the building's sprinkler system which flooded the sanctuary. we spoke to the reverend and restoration expert about the damage. >> it was just likeniagara falls. >> worst i've seen in this area.
6:19 am
we've dealt with worse across the country, but this is the worst i've seen here in chester county. >> the restoration crews tell us that the repairs will take at least six months and could cost upwards of a million dollars. the church will be offering worshippers a live stream of its sunday service a little bit later on today. a massive stretch of the pennsylvania turnpike remains closed this morning as emergency crews work to clear out a 500 car backup from the western part of the state. from tractor trailers to tour buses, cars, suvs, hundreds of drivers were paralyzed prompting the national guard to call in troops to rescue the stranded drivers. governor tom wolf says emergency crews are delivering supplies and officials are working to move folks to shelters if needed. the governor also says that each car had to be checked at least once and workers had to deliver food as well as fuel to make sure that engines would keep running so that people could
6:20 am
heat their cars while they were stuck. good sunday morning first alert weather day once again, we have 30 inches of snow in some spots this morning. we're dry on radar, that's the good news. and we will see sunshine today, but we are definitely in cleanup mode today. it's a cold start, it's a windy start. and we're looking for the potential for more coastal flooding at the beaches. otherwise looking at morning blowing snow, we had the wind in place. not the like yesterday, but still winds anywhere 10 up to 20 miles per hour. gusting higher than that in some spot. and then we'll reach a high of 32 degrees, sunshine, we'll see some melting that will cause refreezing later on tonight. otherwise 22 degrees right now in philadelphia. winds out of the north/northwest at 7 miles per hour. feels more like 13 across the area. below zero in other spots. so temperatures this morning 11 degrees in mt. pocono, 15 in
6:21 am
reading, 18 in allentown, 22 in bensalem. south and east, 25 in atlantic city, 22 in dover. so it is bitterly cold. and you factor in the winds, and it feels colder than that. feels like 6 below zero mt. pocono, 1 below zero in lancaster. the windchill in philadelphia, just 13 and it feels like 10 in fillville, new jersey. a live look outside, we're looking at the pocono mountains looking great there. good day to go skiing today. and snow totals in the philadelphia county area, we forecasted 17 to 23 inches address look what happened, it verified so well. 22.4 in philadelphia. fourth largest storm. 17 bpt 8 in bridgesburg and. finally dry on radar. we love that. big difference compared to this time yesterday. we had that snow move out overnight and now we're starting the clearing process. another spot that may not be clearing for at least a few
6:22 am
hour, he do have another high tide cycle, this morning we still have water in the streets along the beaches and we do have a coastal flood warning until noon and that is for the counties in the green color. so high tide times 7:45 delaware beaches, cape may 8:00, and 7:26 atlantic city. and bays about an hour after this. so we could see additional street flooding and moderate property damage. to today, though, sunny and breezy, 33 to 36. winds out of the northwest at 15 to 20 miles per hour. so breezy this morning, we'll see the wind dissipating throughout the day. tonight temperatures will drop back into the tens. we'll see a refreezing as we head out to school and work on monday. "7-day forecast," 32 today, more sunshine on monday, but look at that overnight low, 17, that's what we'll wake up to in the city even colder north and west, 37. by tuesday, how long skies, a chance for a shower, maybe a few
6:23 am
snow flakes mixing in. in the pocono, 44. partly sunny wednesday, 39. temperatures not bad this week. 39 is normal this time of year. so 37 on thursday, mostly sunny skies. partly sunny friday, 40. and then saturday, a mixture of sun and cloud, milder, 44 degrees. so we could see the potential for melting and refreezing every day this week. so something we'll watch closely. >> we've been talking about the coastal flooding down the shore that of course happened yesterday into today. and there is still more concerns about it. earlier this morning you mentioned the back bays could really be a problem. >> right. and we have high hyde for the ocean around 7:00, 8:00. and then the back bays are an hour later. and when the back bays start to flood, there is nowhere for the water to go. it just gets shoved up and it can't retreat back. so we're already starting out with water in the streets and we'll just add to that. we've seen pictures from all over and they're tremendous.
6:24 am
we'll see it once again today. >> we've been checking in with drew smith, so we'll be watching him down the shore to see what happens around that high tide. thanks. throughout the storm, we've asked our nbc 10 viewers to see it, share it. and you've been sending us freight pictugreat pictures and video like this clip from shelby. it show as deserted westchester pike. yeah, normally very busy. you can send us your photos through the nbc 10 app.

6:35 am
here. snow and ice floating down the street. we know from one of the mayors that they had to rescue at least 50 people who saw water coming into their homes. a lot of those people had to be taken to shelters. they knew this was coming. the nbc 10 meteorologists forecasted it, but they hadn't seen water this high before. listen. >> they didn't tell us nothing. no evacuation. they didn't tell us where to go. they didn't say nothing. so everybody in my position that are waking up, i'm not the only one that's cramped in a one floor apartment. there's many more. >> reporter: yeah, and a lot of people had to call police to get rescue. and they had to bring the trucks in which they only have a couple of those military surplus trucks to pick people up with. so people were calling police yesterday and they had to wait up to four hours for a rescue. but the people that we spoke to
6:36 am
said they were thankful that they were able to get into someplace warm. a lot of those people will stay in the shelter again as we're expecting more flooding from high tide in just about an hour. drew smith, nbc 10 news. >> very reminiscent of super storm sandy. thanks, drew. it too manpower to get this ambulance out of the snow in allentown. it got stuck but fortunately no pargtd patients were inside. let's check in now with lauren mayk, she's live in allen town this morning. she's been talking to people who are up this morning getting the plowing done, shoveling, snow blowing. it will be a long day ahead. >> reporter: yeah, good morning. this is certainly not a leisurely sunday morning for folks, but this is one of their stops. we're along lehigh street. let me show you what is going on. you can see folks pulling in,
6:37 am
trying to get a cup of coffee. as i've been watching the vehicles coming in here, it has been a lot of workers, a lot of folks who has to be out in the snow. they are either heading to work or they are perhaps taking a break from work. i spoke to one gentleman as he was heading out for the day. >> i think it's the biggest one we've ever had. wow, took me a while to dig out my house, but i got out. >> how long did it take you? >> about an hour, but thank god i had a blower. you got to have them today. >> reporter: he was trying to stay warm today and said that -- we talked about shoveling also and how safe you have to be. that's why he likes those blowers so you don't have to be lifting those heavy shovels full of this snow. but it really is the folks who are going out to work that we
6:38 am
have been seeing on the roads. a lot of plows out there, not a lot of other folks, certainly not a lot of smaller cars. and that's something that you do want to be careful about. there are slick parts so you want to be careful. don't go out yet if you don't have to. i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. 6:38 on this sunday. 20 degrees outside. as we take a live look at philadelphia international, you can see just through the fence here that crews are plowing the runway. they want to get everything ready for the airlines because we know that the airlines will do their best to get arrivals and departures back on schedule as the day continues. i just did a quick check and it looks like there might be shall departures heading out at 3:30 this afternoon. so it will be a few hours before operations are back to normal. we'll be right back.
