she was one of the featured speakers in prime time last night. >> she devoted some of her speech to trump but most on her support for the presumptive democratic nominee. >> if you believe we are stronger together, let's work our hearts out to make hillary clinton the next president of the united states. >> warren's words appear to calm some bernie sanders supporters who tried to shut her down at her first mention of hillary clinton. >> even with the ongoing accusations of collusion, some members of the democratic party say their sense of unity is still very much intact. >> we spoke with local delegates. they say the party is moving forward thanks to a big night of speeches for senator eliz berth warren. the delegates say bernie sanders supporters know what to do. >> they know they can't sit out on voting day. that's simply a vote for trump or if you vote for a third party candidate, that's a vote for
trump. today went a long way. >> bernie's speech laid out a case that was terrific and made it clear how large the stakes are in this race and how anyone who cares about what bernie sanders campaigned on has to work to elect hillary clinton, because donald trump is just apocalyptic in terms of the things he cares about. >> the delegates also say bernie's endorsement last night is enough to pull most of his supporters to vote for hillary in november. >> but we're going to see in pennsylvania, particularly, for the first time in my district, you'll see a female candidate for president, the senate and the congressional race. i don't think i'll see that again in my lifetime. >> ahead in the next half hour, hillary making history and the first lady's speech steals the show in the city for firsts, it only macs sense to have a historic convention right here in philadelphia. hear what our delegates are saying about what this dnc means for the women leading our country. and the democrats are commanding
the political world's attention right here in philadelphia. >> that doesn't mean the republican presidential nominee isn't trying to do the same. donald trump was in winston-salem. he took the stage with mike pence. trump promised voters that the gop ticket would bring jobs back to north carolina. he also said there's a double standard when it comes to the resignation of debbie wasserman schultz. >> if happened to them what happened to us, which is disastrous, right? she said it. we'd have headlines all over the world, republicans disaster, it's a disaster. it's the worst thing we've ever seen in the history of convention. >> also on the dnc e-mail scandal, the head of wikileaks says there's no proof behind the clinton campaign's accusation that the russians hacked the party's competer messages.
>> of course, this is a diversion that's being pushed by the hillary campaign. the real story is what the e-mails contain. >> on friday, wikileaks released thousands of dnc e-mailsç with some appearing to show the party trying to undermine sanders. several cyber security experts told nbc news that the e-mails were hacked by russian intelligence. and now to breaking news, nbc 10's katy zachry is following that and other stories we're following for you today. katy? >> that's right, tracy and vai. the daughter of a philadelphia police officer is the victim of a carjacking this morning. right now, officers are still looking for the two teenage suspects who rode up to her on bicycles armed with guns. police spotted the stolen vehicle and began to chase after it. the car hit eight parked cars along springfield avenue in west philadelphia. the two teenagers got out and ran away.
police say they found two guns in the car. the carjacking victim was not hurt. the search, though, continues for the two carjackers, one of them may have head injuries from the crash. this morning, the floodwaters are gone but there's still a lot of cleanup to be done. the rain came down fast and furiously all over our region. that led to flash flooding. drivers quickly became frustrated when they found their way home blocked or slow, they couldn't even get home in somications. a septa bus and car were under water in bensalem, bucks county. everyone did get out safely. trees also came down. a neighbor in philadelphia's overbrook section heard one fall. >> i heard some crinkling out here, really loud, then i heard a boom, next thing i know the tree was in the street. >> on martin luther king drive, ponding slowed down drivers going through fairmont park and
along the schuylkill expressway. your eyes are not deceiving you. that's a hail storm in july. viewers capture hail coming down fast, setting off car alarms in montgomery county. bill henley, more heat is on tap for today but what about more storms? >> storms are out of the picture, no. we see the moisture, though, coming back at us as a bit of fog in some of the areas this morning. this is easton. you can see light fog there. the temperatures have cooled into the 70s for south jersey, philadelphia and delaware but even cooler in the suburbs, in the lehigh valley and this is where we're seeing the fog as a result with those cooler temperatures. leesport is 69, white hall 66. into the 90s this afternoon and that will do away with any fog but at this hour with cooling temperatures and lots of moisture left over from yesterday's storms, the fog is down to half a mile visibility in hazleton. light fog in reading this morning.
the rest of the area is fog-free. we will see a quick warmup today, into the 90s. philadelphia, 77 degrees at 7:00. sunshine and 88 degrees at 11:00 and 93 degrees at 3:00 this afternoon. the suburbs, 85 degrees by lunch time and 90 degrees later today. and the lehigh valley, look at the sunshine, bright sunshine, middle 80s at 11:00. 90s, low 90s this afternoon. but the humidity will also be lower during the day today. drier air is coming in on winds out of the northwest that will be bringing in that drier air and you'll feel it even more so this evening. upper 80s at 11:00 for delaware, 92 degrees this afternoon for new jersey and the shore. you'll see 70s warm into the 80s and both areas will top out in the low 90s this afternoon. just a little bit warmer in interior new jersey. 89 degrees at 3:00, at the jersey shore, likely topping out at 90 degrees this afternoon. futurecast, hour by hour shows
we're in the clear for today. 5:30 this evening, no repeat of thout storms. but there are chances over the next few days of more storms. today and tomorrow, we will be dry, 93 degrees, the high temperature, those high temperatures will be coming down into thursday. 94 degrees and then a chance of some showers and thunderstorms for friday and saturday. high temperatures in the upper 80s for both days. come next week, sunday, and monday, into the 80s, just a little bit warmer tuesday afternoon and by wednesday and thursday, we're back into the 90s. good morning, everyone, first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington here. i'm watching 95. these are our cameras around broad street where we still have those off ramps, the on and off ramps closed from 95 north and southbound to broad street because of the dnc this week here in philadelphia. so not causing any huge problems or delays, of course, but it will be here in an active scene for the next several days.

"i don't remember." he's going like "i don't remember!"
philadelphia. >> he's telling a story of his own family, from center stage at the convention to a worldwide audience, mayor jim kenney told the story of philadelphia's immigrants, the story of his own irish family. he contrasted that with the anti-immigrant theme that the democrats say infuses the campaign of republican donald trump. >> whether our families came to this country in 1976 or 2016, this nation belongs to all of us. >> it was a hard-fought win just like the battle they'll be facing in november. next at 4:30, taking to twitter, bernie sanders got the crowd here at the wells fargo center cheering and it got donald trump tweeting. see how sanders responded. clears skies this morning, the temperatures are down, the storms are out.
