organized into lines like this one is. it continues to head to the southeast, toward the philadelphia area. part of it, though, has pretty much broken up.?< this middle part headed the general direction of pottstown and allentown. now we're looking at the lancaster area and moving to the southeast from that as the strongest portion of this storm. so that would be hitting lancaster right around now. it will take about an hour to get to coatesville. 7:00 at radner. 7:30 in philadelphia if it continues at that present speed. we do have a severe thunderstorm warning in the lancaster area for the line of storms. gusty winds, but a good bit of lightning, maybe even some hail, and a lot of rain. yeah, you could see it toward the southeast. again, if it continues moving in this direction, don't worry. delaware will be affected, too.
5:01 pm
wilmington about 6:50. dover about 8:00 tonight. and the futurecast does show that line holding together as it moves into the area. more coming up later. >> glenn, thank you. let's go to lester holt for a special report on the attack in turkey. we're back with an update in the terror attack at the international airport in istanbul, turkey, tonight. the death toll right now is ten. injuries, at least 60 people injured in what appear to be multiple suicide bombings, late evening there, at this major international air hub, when the attacks took place. we have seen pictures of bloodied and stunned survivors. we have seen people scurrying, and then this video purported to be of the explosion itself. we can tell you the signage appears to be consistent with the lower level of the istanbul airport. we have not independently confirmed this video. but again, it purports to show one of the explosions on the lower level outside the lower
5:02 pm
level of the airport. here's some of the injured being taken away. our richard engel, our chief foreign correspondent, is outside the istanbul airport right now. >> reporter: a lot of check points have been set up. we were trying to get into the airport. we were driving around the perimeter the last hour or so. we've seen police officers with their guns drawn, stops cars, searching cars, several miles away even from the airport itself. a witness told us, a reporter we've been using for many years, that there were three explosions. he was very close to the first one. started to run. then he -- a state police officer had wrestled an attacker to the ground, and then while they were on the ground a short while later the suicide bomber detonated his device. the witness believes the police officer was killed in that attack. more panic, more people started to run. and then sometime after that, he
5:03 pm
heard, didn't see, a third explosion, which he also believes to be a suicide attack. u.s. intelligence officials say this is consistent with the isis profile, multiple attackers, high-profile targets. >> your understanding is all the explosions occurred outside the secure area of the airport? >> reporter: that is our understanding, that they were outside istanbul airport. you check your bags before you go into the airport, and then before you clear customs as you would normally check them. >> no visitors could go in? >> reporter: this would have been a place where there would have been pickups and drop-offs, a lot of taxi lines as people came in and out of the airport. in order to go in, especially if you have a bag, you have to put that bag through an x-ray machine. >> as we've noted, this was late evening in istanbul. obviously you fly into that airport on a regular basis.
5:04 pm
is it busy that time of night? >> reporter: this airport is always busy. it is the hub of the region. the airline brags that it has more destinations than any other airline around the world. you don't need visas to come to turkey from most countries. it is a transit point. people not just coming and going to turkey, but passing through from other countries because they take advantage that this airport goes to so many places all the time. >> you, of course, are based there in istanbul. and you noted earlier that sadly this is not a surprise. >> reporter: unfortunately, it's not a surprise. we had received an intelligence warning several weeks ago that isis had deployed its personnel to turkey. we reported this with you, lester, on "nightly news," and that there was a possibility that isis would try to carry out a high-profile attack during the month of ramadan. and deployed more than 30 militants to the country. >> richard, we will let you get

5:11 pm
vegas. cunningham spoke about the special connection that he had with his former head coach. >> showing the side of buddy, a loving coach and a father figure who cared about his kids more than anybody would know. so that was the positive thing about being in philadelphia. i had a coach who didn't care what everybody else thought. he was more concerned about us as his children. and that was a blessing. >> randall won 39 regular season games under buddy ryan and helped lead the eagles to three straight play-off appearances from 1988 to 1990. right now, on nbc10.com, take a walk down memory lane and look back at some of buddy ryan's best moments here in philadelphia. also tonight, they learned a tragic lesson. now they want other parents to hear their story. >> i have to live without my beautiful daughter for the rest of my life. because i didn't want to put holes in my wall or my furniture.

5:19 pm
so that has really weakened. so now we're focusing more on this southern area. this one to the north, this may go in a general direction of allentown and the poconos. the farther south area, that's already hitting lancaster. there's a severe thunderstorm warning for them. coatesville would be closer to 6:30. west dts chester, 6:55. again, if it continues to hold together. it should hold together for at least a certain degree through the next couple of hours. here's the futurecast. it will take its good old time. it does not look like it's going to be a solid line. we've got a couple things helping us out here. first of all, the fact that it's only moving at 20 to 25 miles an hour. secondly, the amount of lightning is being reduced. and, well, the slower it moves, you've got more of an issue with heavy rain. it's going to take a while before it gets past us.
5:20 pm
look at this. 9:00, and we still have some of those showers and storms in the area. but at least it's not as well organized. the threat of severe weather will diminish hour by hour as we go through the evening. although the total amount of rain is not necessarily going to disappear. so we have that shower threat for this evening. take the umbrellas with you. but then things are going to be improving. you can see that in the seven-day forecast at the bottom of your screen. the temperatures in the 80s over a good bit of the area. in the p.a. suburbs, where some of the showers are going now, you can see the temperatures still right around 80 degrees. west bradford township, 87 in collegeville. so we do have some very warm, and also some very humid air with this system here. for washington, at 83. newtown at 82. bensalem also at 82. once this moves past, we have some nice weather wednesday and
5:21 pm
thursday. then we have another system coming in on friday. so here's the next three days. temperatures at or a little above normal. the humidity is down tomorrow and thursday. way less than what we're seeing today. lehigh valley, partly sunny skies. friday, we get scattered thunderstorms. jersey shore, dry tomorrow and thursday. chance of showers and thunderstorms on friday. and then things will change as we head toward the rest of the weekend. tomorrow, look at these temperatures. pretty nice. chestnut hill, yardley, easton, pretty much everybody's into the 80s, even at the shore we're getting close to that. now, the weekend forecast itself, right now, looking pretty good. now, some of the southern areas, like delaware, the jersey shore, i'm more concerned with watching some clouds that may be lingering here. but at the moment we're still going for generally dry weather.
5:22 pm
jersey shore pretty nice. ocean temperature is 71 degrees. which is good, too. but that's a pretty nice holiday weekend the way it's looking right now. >> glenn, thank you. president obama gave the country a mission, to cure cancer. that includes making sure the poor have access to treatment they need. see how doctors are working together to make that possible. plus, take a look at this scene out of texas. what led up to the fiery pileup, coming up on nbc 10 news at 5:00.

actually intensifying right here, nazareth. the other part is just east of easton. we'll keep our eye on that particular cell. what's down to the south is, again, really weakened, just east of lancaster. if it holds together, it would be near coatesville about 6:17. newark about 7:00. wilmington, about 7:10. up by hazelton, they're holding together, but they're not as strong as they were. the futurecast shows it's going to take quite a while for these storms to get into the philadelphia and wilmington area. you saw that on the tracking. because they're moving so slowly. 20, 25 miles an hour. you don't get a whole lot of severe weather with storms moving at that speed very often. but the slower they move, the longer time you have for the rain to fall. so you've got more of a threat of some localized flooding. there's not much lightning that's going to be left this evening. but there will be some showers
