11:10 am
rain today. because the moisture is still way to the west. hasn't made any progress in the last couple days. still basically west of chicago. so for the rest of the day, we have fair skies in philadelphia. the temperatures dropping in to the 50s this evening. same thing with the pennsylvania suburbs and lehigh valley. not quite getting to 70 degrees this afternoon. in delaware, 67 degrees. 68 south jersey. the jersey shore, look at that. a high of only 58 after 80 degrees yesterday. well, we'll see when the warmer air comes back and when we're going to see rain with the full forecast in just a few minutes. >> all right, glenn, thank you. i see a problem, but i can't make out where it is. jessica boyington can. where's the problem? >> we're seeing tons of problems for any driver trying to get over the delaware memorial bridge this morning. this is the new jersey turnpike approaching the delaware memorial bridge at a complete

11:13 am
11:14 am
like steve santarsiero who will say anything to win an election? after claiming credit for passing universal background checks for all gun purchases, "santarsiero admitted in an interview that he didn't write pennsylvania's gun safety law." his campaign brags about his accomplishments, but "in fact, he has failed in 54 attempts to get any legislation on the books." we just cant trust steve santarsiero. i'm shaughnessy naughton, and i approve this message because we deserve better. new developments in the flint water crisis.

county. sky force 10 over the scene of the hunter's glen apartments in delran a few hours ago. let's get out to pamela osborne standing by live at the scene with an update. hi, pamela. >> hi, vai. i just spoke with the red cross. they tell me anywhere from six to ten apartment units were actually impacted by this fire. i'm going to step out of the way and show you the fire happened at a building just beyond the one you see here. we want to show you overhead, get you a look at sky force 10 chopper video to give you a better perspective of exactly where this happened. you can see there were flames pouring out of that building. this is at the hunter's glen apartment complex. we spoke with a woman who lived in that building, off camera. she tells us she was asleep upstairs this morning. that she got a knock on the door. it was a maintenance worker. they were trying to alert her to the fire. she was able to get out okay. after she was out, she says those maintenance workers went inside and rescued her cat. so her cat is safe as well.
11:30 am
based on what we see here, as i mentioned, probably several apartments damaged in that fire. i went to speak with someone down at the office. they said they were busy trying to figure out exactly what they were going to do with those residents who were displaced as a result of this. again, as i mentioned, the red cross arriving here on scene in delran to help residents impacted by this fire. reporting live this afternoon, i'm pamela osborne, nbc10 news. >> pamela, thank you. more breaking news. a judge has found a nun guilty of drunken driving in gloucester county this morning. sister kimberly miller was arrested last november. the judge rejected the story of taking an ambien along with wine and sleep driving. pennsylvania attorney general kathleen kane appeared before a judge in montgomery county in the last few hours. nbc10's randy gyllenhaal is live at the courthouse in norristown. tell us what happened. >> kane's attorneys had filed a motion, basically accusing

montgomery county prosecutors of leaking fbi recordings to an allentown newspaper. those recordings allegedly showed that kane knowingly gave confidential grand jury information to another reporter, and that is something she denied. let me show you the video of kane arriving in court this morning. she did make no comment, and in a surprise move, her defense team actually decided to withdraw that very motion they had just filed about the fbi tapes, calling this all a distraction. >> i don't have time for distraction. i don't have time for going on some kind of wild-goose chase. i thought it was a distraction, to be frank with you. i have been in these hearings before. and it's a mystery that never solves. >> now, montgomery county prosecutors have denied leaking any kind of fbi tapes to a newspaper. meantime, kane's defense team asked for a week to file more papers in the case that could potentially delay the start of

11:33 am
pennsylvania next week. as for the democrats, hillary clinton now in a sweet spot when it comes to the delegates she needs to get. less than a third of remaining delegates will get her this nomination. it left bernie sanders quite frustrated that the independents who had supported him so strongly were not able to vote in this closed primary. he made a point of that, reacting to the results. hillary clinton actually overperformed what the polls said. so looking ahead, next week, there are five states voting on tuesday. including maryland, also delaware, pennsylvania, which is a big prize, connecticut, and rhode island. that's the latest from washington. back to you. >> tracie potts reporting. now the focus is in our area. primaries neck week in pennsylvania, delaware, and the new jersey primary june 7th mean the candidates will be heading to the tristate area in an effort to win over votes. on our app, we have an entire section dedicated to decision

>> this is the 37th year. you're crose closing in on 40. i can't imagine how work there is in getting ready to do this. >> the parks and rec department, it's a labor of love for all the people on the staff. we do this as part of our duties. nobody is really assigned to the race other than myself. all of the employees jump in and take part. there's probably about 150 of us who are involved on the committees and stuff like that. we do it because it's a recreational activity for the city of philadelphia. that's what our premise was in the beginning in 1980 and that's what we stayed with. >> you told me you have been in charge since 1998. you have been involved in some shape or form since 1984. that's a long time. did you see from the beginning this would become -- you have runners from all over the world. this is a worldwide event. >> we have seven countries represented and 46 different states. wyoming, north and south dakota and hawaii aren't participating. we had them from those states in the past.

seeing it grow over the years has been tremendous. it's been something special watching it develop. we never envisioned it being this large. we thought it was going to be a local event for the city, something cool to do, to run down broad street. it turned into the sixth largest race in the country. >> why do you think there's such large appeal? >> mostly, it's a straight shot. runners get to run ten miles on one street. the only turn is around city hall. that's really cool because you get to see the runners in front of you. you see the heads bobbing. and the word of mouth from runners is really what sold this event over the years. how they enjoyed doing it and they get to run through the different neighborhoods of philadelphia. >> and i guess in light of what happened in boston a few years ago, security is so much more important now than it's probably ever been. tell me about that, measures that are in place to protect the runners and people who come to watch. >> our big thing right now is we want to make sure everybody is safe on the course, obviously, and all the participants and
11:50 am
spectators. we have 4,000 volunteers we're worried about, too, on the course doing water stations and handing out refreshments. everything we ask everybody to do, if you're going to be in the event or coming to the navy yard, everybody comes with a clear plastic bag and be ready to go through security check points. that's the most important thing we can put out to the general public. if you're going to come to the event, clear plastic bag so the police can check your bag and make sure everybody is. the homeland security people here and the police departments have done a wonderful job. all the preparation they were doing for the pope and everybody else that was in town, they got it down. >> and of course, you love your partners in blue cross and your media partner. >> nbc10. >> there you go. shameless plug. >> it's not a problem at all. >> it's been great having the live coverage. it's been spectacular, and blue cross has been our sponsor, 20 years this year, and they couldn't be better. >> let's keep it going.

11:53 am
friday, that's when we're seeing the showers. especially in the. maybe even some thunderstorms. and again, we could use this rain. knock the pollen out of the air. how much rain? not much by friday morning. but as we go through the day on friday, looks like more rain to the north and west. less rain toward the shore. but the problem with the shore is that some of that rain could be happening saturday morning. there's saturday, sick:00 a.m. we're starting to get a little rain at the shore. again, we need this rain to knock the pollen out. we have oak is very high, and it is going to continue until we get the rain. here's the neighborhood forecast for tomorrow. you can see these numbers, way higher than what we saw during, for the day today. so it is going to be quite a bit warmer. now, what about the rest of the ten days? friday, there's the showers. close to 80 degrees. we generally dry out for the
