over allentown right now, very heavy rain, a lot of lightning and damage is winds and the potential for hail right across 78. this is going to move towards easton very soon. a severe thunderstorm warning out for this area until 645. a lot of lightening, like mentioned and with any severe thunderstorm you can expect winds potentially near 60 miles an hour. those are damaging winds. this storm is moving pretty quickly right around 45 miles an hour to the southeast, so if you're in upper bucks county expect this very soon and by easton expect at bed minister 6:16 and solebury is closer to 6:30, and, again, damaging winds with a storm if you're on the path of that thing. you want to get inside. also for bucks county, we've been watching heavy rain and lightning over the same area near buckingham and finally starting to leave buckingham and newtown grant, a lot of lightning and heavy rain. also the potential for damaging winds. precip rates are over and 2 nfl
inches an hour and this will continue to move into mercer county north of trenton, a lot of lightning and across the major interstates and, yes, we're seeing golf ball sized haleys especially in parts of the lehigh valley as well. keep tracking the storms coming and show you what you can expect coming up straight ahead. >> we have some breaking news right now in the political world. bernie sanders just sent a message to his protests and asked them not to disrupt this convention. the unity of the democratic party was challenged earlier today as a new leader kicked off the convention two hours ago and today the fbi now involved in thing hacked e-mails that suggest the the dnc supported clinton over sanders during the primaries. we will give you an all-access pass over the next four davis dnc right here in philadelphia. we have every report and photojournalist covering everything that's happening and how it could affect you, and right now we have reporters on every level inside the wells fargo center. we begin with nbc 10's george spencer. george?
>> and, jim, the crowd down here on the floor already boisterous after nearly a year and a half of preparation. this is an historic moment for the city of philadelphia and historic nomination of a female candidate, but it all comes at a time of deep discord within the democratic party. with the drop of the gavel and loud cheers this afternoon, the 2016 democratic national convention officially launched 16 years after our heavily democratic city hosted its last convention, but for the democratic party leader who helped organize it all, a fast and stunning downfall. debbie wasserman schultz was nearly booed off the stage by her home state florida delegation this morning thanks to the e-mail leak scandal seeming to show party leaders biassed in favor of hillary clinton over bernie sanders.
>> it's unfortunate, real unfortunate. >> reporter: this delegate from wasserman schultz' home state believes it's the only path forward. >> she's looking at the bigger picture that the democrats continue to hold white house. >> reporter: among sanders protests on the floor this afternoon division runs very deep. >> i think it is time for the corrupt democratic politicians to fall on their sword and realize that there's a movement happening, and it's not going to stop. >> unifying that, quote, movement with clinton's establishment support will be a central challenge for the democratic party during its week in our city, and at least for now, as it all begins, delaware super delegate lisa goodman is optimistic. >> primaries always leave some hard feelings and i think it's inevitable that that always happens. the job of us as delegates and us as a party will leave philadelphia united and i think we will. and tonight we're expecting
to hear more on that theme of unity. specifically as it relates to american families and the american economy and among big name speakers tonight, philadelphia mayor jim kenny. reporting live from the democratic national convention floor, i'm george spencer, nbc 10 news. jim, back up to you. >> objection george. bernie sanders addressed his delegates and said his revolution transformed the democratic party, and as we mentioned nbc news has learned sanders telling his supporters this afternoon do not disrupt convention tonight. we'll see if they follow that. this afternoon sanders fired up his delegates during a speech at the pennsylvania convention center. the crowd booed when sanders said, quote, we need to elect hillary clinton. nbc 10's lauren mayk joining us live from the floor of the wells fargo center. lauren? can you hear me lauren? >> i just spoke with a delegate who received that e-mail that
you mentioned. that e-mail from bernie sanders that went out by text and e-mail, and it told supporters that they could damage this movement that they had helped create by booing or otherwise demonstrating here on the floor but that for some a very difficult task because this is something they are very passionate about. they have spent a lot of time working on this, and they are not quite ready to just be adored by the democratic party yet. they still want to have their voices heard. earlier today a large group of delegates gathered at the convention center in philadelphia where they actually got to hear from bernie sanders and hearing from them tonight and they got to hear from him today. take a listen. >> immediately right now we have got to defeat donald trump. and we have got to elect hillary clinton and tim kaine.
[ crowd booing ] >> i think the republican party has excluded themselves out of the serious dialogue if you look at the pure darkness they had at their convention. i'm looking for light and inspiration. >> reporter: what are your feelings as you're waiting for in? >> i heard bernie's speeches a lot of times. he probably is going to give the same speech that he gave us in -- in the delegates speech this afternoon so, you know, the really good part to this speech he'll talk a lot about how it is that the revolution continues from here. >> reporter: so a lot of anticipation to hear from bernie sanders himself today and hear what he has to say. this time he will be addressing not just his own delegates but hillary clinton's delegates as well. and, jim, as we are down here on the floor, we're going to throw things back up to you, looking down on this convention. jim? >> all right, lauren mayk, thank
you. thousands of protesters received permits to rally this week for bernie sanders, and a short time ago we learned philadelphia police detained about ten of them who crossed through the police barricades, and today there were crowds feeling the bern of this dangerous heat in south jersey, center and south philadelphia as well. tough conditions out there. first alert traffic reporter is looking at how this is impacting the rush hour commute. jessica, how is it looking? >> jim, we were seeing a lot of closures and delays as protesters were going from broad street down to the city hall and the schuylkill expressway eastbound ramp now to packer avenue, this general area are closed, and the police checkpoints is what's causing death lays. 59 northbound right around the philadelphia international airport, you can see the delays and 95 southbound around girard
avenue and those where the five-ton restrictions are in place. moving in a little bit closer into the wells fargo area and into south philadelphia. can you see that closure of broad street here. we are seeing some backups and delays and arteries that funneled into that space and right now they are actually starting to improve. this is 676, the vine street expressway around third street. some of the volume that we're approaching seeing 95 because of the police checkpoints. it will be like that. nothing to major right now. jessica boyington, thanks. >> a look at primetime speakers. starting tonight at 9:00, cory booker who is was a finalist for the vp pick and first lady michelle obama and a new addition, the keynote speaker is senator elizabeth warren and finally senator bernie sanders gets his time in the national spotlight tonight. now, as for republican presidential nominee donald trump this afternoon, he had a stump speech with his running mate with mike pens in virginia.
earlier today trump fired off a dozen tweets, one of them included, quote, here we go again with another clinton scandal and e-mails. yet, can you believe. crooked hill hear knew the fix was in and "b" never had a chance referring to bernie sanders. we'll be reporting tonight. follow the events in realtime and check out some of our exclusive content like this cool animation on what happens at conventions and how the dnc differs from the rnc. meantime that's all for now from the wells fargo center. let's send it back to jacqueline london with a look at the dangerous heat and storms out there. jacqueline? >> a busy day for news, weather and sports. jim, straight ahead. eagles training camp starts and quarterback carson wentz may not sit on the bencht entire year after all. >> bernie sanders supporters coping with extreme heat as they camp out in south jersey for the dnc. >> we'll do whatever it takes.

right now at the radar. you see all the yellow boxes, severe thunderstorm warnings across the area. we've seen the majority activity north of philadelphia, and what we're real watching now are two very strong thunderstorms, one through the lehigh valley and one just north of philadelphia and could be skimming northeast philly. we'll be watching that one very closely, too. also because these storms have indications of damaging winds and also hail, and some of that hail has been golf ball sized and potentially baseball size from earlier estimates. right now we're look through the area north of philadelphia and start at the lehigh vale. allen town has seen a lot of heavy rain as well as other parts of the lehigh valley. >> richmond and bed minister, severe thunderstorm warning other until 6:45. the heavy rain is falling at a rate of about 2 to 3 inches an house, and this particular thunderstorm has a lot of lightning in it and potentially damaging winds. if are you in bed minister expect it by 6:22 and then it will be sliding into new jersey. now we're look near parts of
lower montgomery county right near norristown. abbington across the p.a. turnpike and gwinnett township. a severe thunderstorm and this morning it's going to go until 6:45. now this storm is pretty much skimming the philadelphia area. possibly northeast philly could see some of this and if you're in bensalem expect it at 6:36, mt. laurel right around 6:50. this one is traveling southeast right around 30 to 40 miles an hour. with any strong storms, 60-mile-an-hour winds. seeing indications of golf ball sized hail right near skipback. whit payne township this, hail traveling mostly southeast so these are indications that we're dealing with a very strong, dangerous thunderstorm. if you're in the path of this thing you want to get inside this. hail is heading towards the p.a. turnpike and currently
indications of it right across 476. parts of bucks county, golf ball-sized hail and that storm will be sliding into new jersey soon. now we're looking at mercy county and very heavy rain andy is vee thunderstorms still in this area with a lot of lightning potential lip damaging winds so this is a very active afternoon. we could also be looking at the potential for flooding with a lot of these storms and everyone is under a severe thunderstorm watch until about 8:00 p.m. tonight. if you're around philadelphia and points north. southgers and delaware expected until about 10:00 p.m. tonight, so we'll be keeping an eye on storms very closely. mostly north of gravely now and either way for the rest of this evening. any strong storms could provide damaging winds, lightning and heavy rain and the potential for rain as we've seen indications of that. here's a look as we go hour by hour. a look at 8:30 tonight and we're still seeing storms around the area. south jersey and delaware, keeping an eye on the locations as well and all of this is
quieting down and tomorrow will be a much dryer day and temperatures remaining around 90 degrees for most of this week. a closer look at this forecast coming up. john? >> you can hear police choppers flying overhead. there's protesters right outside the eagles gates, but inside here at the nova care complex, they were all excited for day one of training camp. whenthe state made aers, commitment to us. i knew that i wasn't going to make a fortune. but i would have a secure pension plan when i retired. each and every one of us made that contribution from every paycheck we ever earned. they've been negligent in their responsibility over the years of not funding this pension the way it should have been funded. they have made a promise, they've made a commitment, and they need to stick to it.
