5:08 pm
southern parts of chester county and new castle county around newark and wilmington. this is pretty heavy. rainfall rates about an inch and a half an hour but not sitting in one area for an hour though i would not be surprised about ponding of water on the roadways as you're driving. so if you still have to travel in these areas, take your time, go slower because this is the heavy rain moving through. it will be moving into the philadelphia area, continuing to move in. then you see the motion of it from west to east. so then it will slide into new jersey and the rest of delaware so we have heavy rain on our door step. the snow, though, with the storm system is still hitting new england. we don't have to worry about that. temperature, 70 in dover, 48 degrees in allentown as we go through tonight, though, once the rain moves through these temperatures drop and we have a freeze warning for part of the area, who can expect that coming up. >> we should soon learn more about the amtrak crash that left two people dead on sunday morning. the national transportation
5:09 pm
safety board is trying to determine why a train hit a backhoe that was sitting in the middle of the track. two amtrak employees were killed, dozens of passengers and crew members suffered minor injuries. tracks are routinely closed temporarily for maintenance, they often do maintenance on sunday. they want to know where a breakdown in the safety process happened. today, chester's mayor thanked the first responders. >> it's hard. this is hard. it's painful and it's tragic. but hopefully at the end of the day we'll all have learned something. >> the ntsb has planned a 5:30 briefing in center city. nbc 10 is there, we'll bring to the you live when it begins. we also checked on passengers injured in the crash. everyone has now been released from the hospital but before they got to the hospital, many took refuge in a nearby church. cydney long has that story.
5:10 pm
>> with the windows shattered and the fireball and people flying out of seats it could have been a lot worse. >> reporter: reverend john ford didn't hear the the impact, instead sirens interrupted the quiet moments he finished writing his sunday morning sermon. >> i feel that the lord used us because my message with both churches was the lord's friends. >> reporter: trainer united methodist served as a friend to more than 300 of the walking wounded passengers sunday. opening up their back door where people who were bumped and bruised were given blankets after a hike that took them from the wrecked train through the woods and over a creek to get to the church gym for help and warmth in the cold. >> of course they were in semishock from being surprised that this happened. we had tea going, coffee going. >> reporter: the red cross helped passengers who needed immediate medication, after their belongings were left on
5:11 pm
the train and offered disaster mental health. trainer united methodist is a designated disaster site. >> we always have been concerned there would be an oil spill. >> reporter: they opened up the doors of the sanctuary. >> those individuals that would like to pray and actually get a little warmer because it's about 15 degrees warmer in the sanctuary. >> reporter: the church will continue to pray for all of those affected. >> we certainly sincerely pray for the two families that lost someone, of course we cannot understand yet how it happened. >> reporter: and pray for answers. from trainer, delaware county, cydney long, "nbc 10 news." another story, what happened before the kidnapping? investigators have a lot of questions about the woman accused of taking an infant from the king of prussia mall. why the investigation is hitting some road blocks. for years, i was a laboratory chemist,
5:12 pm
developing drugs to fight deadly diseases. as a scientist, i know there's more that washington can do to help families. i'm running for congress to protect planned parenthood funding so more women get cancer screenings and treatment... to pass a ban on fracking
5:13 pm
in the delaware river basin to preserve our clean water, and to always protect medicare and social security. i'm shaughnessy naughton and i approve this message.
5:14 pm
this is a test. this is a vitac captioning test this is a vitac captioning test this is a test. this is a vitac captioning test investigators need answers about the suspect accused of taking a baby from the king of prussia mall. >> lauren mayk followed up with mess and found out why. getting answers may take time. >> after reunion and arrest, police are still working on this case. the police chief tells me today investigators were meeting to go over the next step in the investigation. this is the image you saw as she
5:15 pm
left the mall, a suspect caught on camera leaving with a baby. but what if you went back in time. what would you find? that's what upper merion police are after. the police chief tells me they will take a closer look at cameras to see what amoore did. the mom says the woman approached them, followed them to the food court. when the mom was distracted took off with the baby. the image shows a woman walking out of the mall but the chief says they will look at what happened inside. that day's tape has already been saved. and officers will work with the mall's system of cameras to map it out. 32-year-old amoore claims two months ago she delivered a baby who died. they haven't confirmed that. but we've also learned how they will go about determining if it's true. they will try to get search warrants for medical records, that could show whether amoore was ever pregnant and whether
5:16 pm
she gave birth. the challenge there could be knowing where to start looking for those medical records. and that could rely on information from amoore herself. lauren mayk, "nbc 10 news." >> the battle over the fate of beleaguered atlantic city took another turn as lawmakers meet to hash out who will control the resort town. in trenton christie said he ordered the state to file a lawsuit against atlantic city, he wants to stop the city from making a pay roll payment friday because it owes its school district more than $30 million through july. >> we'll prevent them from making atlantic city students and families collateral damage to their reckless financial games. >> every payment to the school has only been made through the governor's office. it is the governor's office and the monitor that determines when school payments are made. >> a little more than an hour ago the mayor of atlantic city said monitors for the schools
5:17 pm
and the state meet daily and tell atlantic city when to make required payments. >> former president woodrow wilson's name will stay on princeton school of public policy. dozens spent 32 hours protesting outside the office of the university's president last november. the group called the black justice league wants which issen's name removed because of his racist views. wilson served as president from 1913 to 21. he graduated from princeton and was also its president. he was regarded as a leading progressive but also supported segregation. philadelphians remember dr. martin luther king jr.'s legacy, the mayor presented a proclamation to a foundation that holds a day of observation on the anniversary of king's death. >> clearly in the 60s when dr. king was conducting those courageous battles against racism and prejudice in our
5:18 pm
country, i started to understand what public service was, what service to others is. >> a human family day celebration will be held sunday, april 24th. well, we have heavy rain moving into the philadelphia area right now. hear's a live look outside, center city skyline from the adventure aquarium. temperatures are a little on the school side, 56 degrees. we have decent rainfall in the city and it's only going to get heavier. winds not that bad, west-northwest at 10 miles an hour but they will be increasing overnight tonight once the rain leaves. philadelphia area, 95, 476, upper darby over to media, this is heavy rainfall moving in. even near west deptford this is going to move into cherry hill and areas around new jersey. we'll continue seeing all of this heavy rain cross the i-95
5:19 pm
corridor into new jersey. precip rates are a little over 2 inches an hour. it's not going to sit in one area for an hour but we could see ponding of water on the roadways, maybe a little bit of localized flooding. this is really the only cluster of heavy rain across the area right now. it also extends down into wilmington across 495. into new castle county and a little more heavy rain in chester county and more off to the west. we're going to watch as that continues to move in, but this is the main cluster that we're watching. right over philadelphia and the major interstates, there is more around baltimore and washington. that's going to be moving into parts of delaware, new jersey, through the next several hours. if you take a big picture look this is part of a storm system that is sending snow into new england, locally, though, we're on the warmer side of this so we're only seeing the rain. later tonight once the rain leaves our temperatures will be dropping off. here is a look at future weather. the rain continues as we go toward 7:00, but notice it's clearing north and west by 7:00
5:20 pm
p.m. new jersey and delaware, still holding on to the rainfall. by 8, 9:00 moving to the shore and the delaware beaches, and will gradually be clearing out. once the rain leaves temperatures really start to drop. now, the road temperature is still going to be fairly warm. the air temperature will be dropping below freezing. so, the sensitive plants, we could have problems there with temperatures dropping this low. then we go into the day tomorrow, high temperatures only around the low 40s to mid-40s in spots. so kind of a cold and windy day for tuesday. we have a freeze warning out because the temperatures i showed you, philadelphia area surrounding suburbs, new jersey and delaware because it will be below freezing for several hours. now we will be watching the road conditions at this time because again, that rain is moving through. but it's going to get windy so that may help to dry things out as well. for tonight, we're going to see the rain early this evening. then we'll be clearing later tonight. cold and windy. 24 degrees areas north and west.
5:21 pm
tomorrow a cold day but a lot drier. also windy day, winds gusting near 30 miles an hour, highs mid to low 40s, afternoon highs 60 degrees this time of year. we go into wednesday, we're going to stay cool, morning lows in the upper 20s, a cold start, afternoon highs in the 50s. then we're in the 60s on thursday, that's going to come with rain, thursday's going to be pretty rainy especially later in the day, friday we start to clear up, and that takes us into our weekend where we actually do get colder again, especially in the morning. >> thanks. new developments in the lasean mccoy investigation. the former eagle will not face charges for a bar fight in old city. now, the decision that has the district attorney and local police officers at odds. we'll hear from both sides. this is a vitac captioning test this is a test. this is a vitac captioning test this is a vitac captioning test this is a test. this is a vitac captioning test
