people want to deal with this morning. especially if they're headed to shore points in new jersey. we have a earlier truck fire that's now out but unfortunately it's caused some significant delays on pennsylvania turnpike eastbound right between the delaware valley exit which is 358 and the exit for the pennsylvania turnpike connector bridge which is the next exit. 359. that stretch of road is closed and traffic is being die verted off the turnpike. you'll be brought back but i just brought up the speed maps to show you. so it's about 20 miles per hour. that's what you're throwing to right at the scene. you are crawling at 2 miles per hour. so this is really delaying people on the road this morning to get to work. to school. many people working a half day to get on the road for memorial day weekend. i'll stay on on of this. we have launched sky force 10 and we'll have a shot coming up in a few minutes. >> trump versus sanders in a first debate of its kind in

the leadership in the city to the convention enterprise? we found both of those. logistical infrastructure as well as leadership. >> one more thing that put philadelphia over the top. >> parking lots around wells fargo gave us a tremendous amount of flexibility and space to accommodate the media and satellite trucks and to accommodate the bus lots, the car lots, the media compounds so we look at -- all of us that planned logistics look out the window and said parking lot and we stood there for about three minutes salivating over parking lots. >> over the next two months her team will transform the center into a stage fit for a national audience and she is in charge of it all. from the pomp and circumstance to the most seemingly minute details like the color of the
carpet. >> who knew there were so many shades of blue. you have to pick exactly the right blue so it shows up and what it looks like on a color chart is not what it looks like in television. you'd be surprised on how much time we spent on the correct shade of blue. >> the dnc is working to get everyone involved and they're hoping to leave a lasting legacy after the convention is over. a closer look at that coming up this afternoon on nbc 10 news starting at 4:00. >> now your nbc 10 first alert neighborhood weather. >> let's check your nbc 10 first alert neighborhood weather which is a traffic specific to your neighborhood. you won't get it anywhere else. >> focus is on where you live. bill has the forecast for your neighborhood. >> a hot one today especially inhand areas. hot and more humid than yesterday. it's a warming trend. so dramatic. last weekend we were in the 60s
