for the trump campaign? what kind of resources are they putting into wing the keystone state? all right. we're waiting to get that hookup. >> reporter: hey, can you guys hear me? okay. great. still trying to figure out how many resources he's put forward in the state but we do know pennsylvania is one of four swing states that donald trump will be focusing on for the general election. it inclusion ohio, florida and potentially north carolina. these are the states that the campaign believes they need to win in order to win the presidency. without them right now it looks like it will be a loss for donald trump when it comes to the electoral map. right now though he's embroiled in controversy, as you guys well know. it's pretty standard for the donald trump campaign, hopping from one controversy to the next. right now the controversy surrounds his criticism of the khan family who lost their son to an ie.d. explosion during the iraq way, came out at the
democratic national convention and criticized donald trump for the muslim ban and asked nim he even read under the constitution and under donald trump's presidency he would not have been allowed to serve of in the american military, donald trump coming back firing against them saying that he needs to hit back. he should be allowed to hit back if they criticize him. today the khan family has been blanketing the airwaves giving their side of the story trying to humanize american muslims in this country and what they have done to serve of this nation. meanwhile donald trump had no words for the khans today at his earlier rally in ohio. we'll found out if he has any more words for them tonight here in pennsylvania. it looks unlikely as of now as the campaign is trying to vehemently change the subject, trying to turn things back to radical islam and what they feel is hillary clinton's negative record when it comes to fighting terrorists, also her negative record when it comes to job creation which they say will be central to the vote here in
pennsylvania. >> thanks so much. she will be following the trump campaign through election day, and you can see her reports right near on "nbc nooigs nightly news" with lester holt. that's coming up tonight at 6:30. >> many republicans are stepping forward to denounce donald trump's comments. that includes pennsylvania's senator pat team who is in a tough re-election battle this november. now today team said the khan family, like all americans who lose loved ones in the defense of our country deserve our gratitude and honor. anything else is inappropriate. toomey's opponent says those words are not enough. until pat team pledges to oppose donald trump in november his carefully crafted statements about our nation's veterans and armed forces are completely hollow, and coming up on nbc news at 5:00 we'll hear more from the khan family and those coming to their defense after trump's comments. >> meantime, new details on a

i'm sure you probably assumed that and because of that to fill in the gaps and give us a better look and to give you a better look of what to expect outside we now have storm ranger 10. this is a mobile radar, so now when you see the red sweeping radar, that is our mobile radar. it has wheels on it. it's on a giant truck. i'm sure you'll see it later on in the newscast. but this particular vehicle has a radar on it. we can drive it anywhere we want any time we want and in any weather condition, and what it does when i tell you, it fills in the gap. it sees what the stationary radar has missed, for example, it's also closer to the ground in some cases, we can see what precip is actually hitting the ground and where are you such as freezing rain or snow or rain, so, again, in the winter weather, just remember this. you don't want to miss storm ranger ten. able to give you a more specific look of what's happening and a more accurate forecast and with our neighborhood weather can drive it anywhere as well as the seven day behind the bottom of the screen. a lot of new tools and look at a
lot of thunderstorm activity towards kent county and smyrna seeing very heavy rain. a lot of lightning here going on crossing the delaware bay at the moment. delaware has been seeing some of the heaviest rain so far. very slow moving. we could certainly be seeing localized flooding maybe around route 13 and near harrington as well. these are slow moving showers and thunderstorms and the red is showing you the heavier rain and there you see the red sweep going by. that storm ranger 10, it's right in gloucester county and near glassboro and where we drove it to today. we can move it anywhere we want so can you have a better idea of thunderstorms. now a look at cumberland county and heavy rain and commercial as well. the heaviest of all that lightning and shower activity. that's a little bit offshore in the delaware barracks but these are slow movers, like i mentioned, so we could be dealing with a little bit of localized flooding. now we're looking a little farther off to the west and right near the poconos thunderstorms moving in. very slowly we could be seeing a flooding threat through the lehigh vale and poconos and with
any late night showers that develop tonight. some of the pennsylvania suburbs like montgomery and bucks county through the lehigh valley and poconos and mercer county, flash flood watch still because the ground is very saturated and we could see heavy showers and thunderstorms which could lead to localized flash flooding. here's future weather. by about 10:00 tonight we could be seeing scattered showers or storms through the area but best chance could be up neither poconos and lehigh valley so we'll be watching that very closely. later on tonight we could see some thundershowers showers overnight and tomorrow we're not going to be out of this pattern just yet. cooler with an onshore wind and the clouds will still be with us tomorrow and see scattered showers and hold on to the umbrella tomorrow afternoon. it's mostly going to be lighter rainfall and that would be even throughout the afternoon and evening. finally though we see things starting to clear up as we go into wednesday so wednesday we'll see more in the way of sunshine and our weather pattern gets quiet from wednesday through the end of the week.
temperatures right now. we're only in the mid to upper 70s because of the cloud cover and our wind direction is 76 and turnersville 77 and hamilton township is coming n at 79, so as we go through tomorrow, scattered showers around. wednesday and thursday we dry up. mid-80s, if you're in the pennsylvania suburbs mid-80s as we go through wednesday and thursday and after tomorrow's rain and even through the lehigh valley much cooler temperatures. we'll take a look at new jersey and delaware and your ten-day forecast coming up. >> a unique display of the olympic rings caught the attention of onlookers today in brazil. the rings, take a look closely. made up from ropes hanging over the bridge and got mad cheers from the crowd. organizers hope to break the guinness world record for the largest formation of its kind. opening ceremonies beginning friday night right here hon nbc 10 and all through the olympics we'll be introducing you to local athletes who are going for

other he's what our radar has always looked like and you can see it right now. white sweeping radar and locations. we use them for all different types of weather. now we have a new tool. this is storm ranger 10. this is the red sweeping area that you see. it is a mobile radar. meaning we are the only news station that has a mobile radar that dewith actually move anywhere we want so this is a radar on wheels. we drove it into new jersey. it's currently in gloucester county near glassboro and what this does it's able to fill in the gap that the stationary radars miss and we can drive it in between those radars. we can move it anywhere we want to see anything we want whenever we want in any kind of weather, so we're definitely going to be using this a lot when it comes to winter weather because now we'll have a closer more detailed look of what's happening on the ground where you will be walking and driving. we'll be able to tell you if there's freezing rain falling or
snow hitting the ground or even heavy rain. riverview is down to harrington and greenwood and even milford. dealing with very heavy rain here right across route 13. would i not be surprised if we had some localized flooding here. a little bit further north of that, smyrna, one very big thunderstorm and lots of lightning. that stretches across the delaware bay into parts of south jersey and skimming the southern portions of cumberland county, so very heavy rain here just south of cedarville. maurice river kind of on the edge of it and a lot of lightning. these are slow moving storms. that's why we're going to be paying very close attention to any localized flooding. the rest of the area seeing mostly overcast skies and a few scattered sprinkles and one cluster of thunderstorms neither poconos, we'll be watching those as we go through late tonight. again, if you're watching where we drove storm ranger 10 to, because, again, we can move it. the only station that has it. it's right near glassboro in gloucester county. we can move this, like i
mentioned, anywhere we want and we will depending on the weather situation. now north of philadelphia we still have a flash flood watch for mercer county, lehigh vale and the poconos, a very saturated ground here show through tonight we could still see heavy showers or storms developing and that could lead to flash flooding so keep that in mind if you're heading out in those areas. currently if you take a langer view a little wired and back off to the west, still in a very unsettled weather pattern. tomorrow we'll still have some showers in the forecast. still a cooler day and have the umbrella with you. a closer look tomorrow and finally a look at where to dry out. >> no cause for the fire that destroyed a landmark lumber company over the weekend. nbc 10 south jersey reporter cydney long spoke with the longtime owners who are heartbroken. >> it's difficult to just stay exactly how we feel because we are just overwhelmed.

to travel to parts of miami and want pregnant women who already live there to be extra cautious after warnings from the centers of disease control after florida officials announced ten additional zika infections today, upping the number of cases to 14. officials believe the infections happened at the same miami neighborhood. men and women who visited the area since mid-june should wait at least eight weeks before trying to conceive. well, if you drive an older honda accord you bert dhoek see if it's still in the driveway. according to nationwide insurance the 1996 model is the number one most stolen car followed by the '98 model year. the 2006 full-sized pickup comes in think. as for new cars thieves love the nissan altima. locally trends continues in pennsylvania and new jersey the 5097 honda accord is the most stolen car and in delaware it's the honda civic. >> we're track rain tonight on
the nbc 10 radar, and now we have a new tool to show you what's happening in your neighborhood. >> it's called storm ranger 10, and nbc 10 first alert meteorologist krystal klei is joining us live to show us what it can do and what it can do. >> krystal? >> yeah, guys, i'm excited to be here. we're in uncharted territory with stormranger10, a doppler radar on wheels. on wheels being the key phrase there. we can move the thing all around, and what you see behind me is a computer system that we can use to move and actually access that radar that's anchored to the back of our truck bed. it's one big unit, and it is impressive. now, i'll add mitt this is a meteorologist's dream, but it's also very important for you guys at home. let's start off by actually talking a little bit more about the truck and taking a look inside. we use a computer program to control the radar, and this is how we set the bar higher than ever before. we can take our truck into your
neighborhood and set up that radar at a safe height and scan the lowest level. sky for rain, snow or the in between. now, we can take what storm ranger 10 owes radar looks for you guys. i want to explain a little bit. the two red circles indicate our two rings of protection. the smallest circle is level one. it indicates what storm activity we are actually seeing become 30 miles and less than 2,000 feet above the ground and very close to the circle. the largest circle is level two t.reaches 60 miles from our truck and it gives us a picture less than had a mile above the ground. typically the radar not exactly for this guy. much higher up above this ground rather and on top of that it's stationary. instead of being able to move around like storm ranger 10 so here's the issue. if i'm the radar site and that beam goes out at an angle. if you're far enough away from that site there's a lot between
