4:17 pm
at how it takes you right into the storm. problem? simple. no matter where storms are, radars are stuck on towers. and the farther you are from the tower, the less clear the weather picture. we wanted to get a clearer picture of what's going on up there. inside the clouds. and the solution? storm ranger 10. developed and built right here at nbc. so for the first time ever, we can take the radar with us. right to the storm. and give you that clearer picture. what other radars miss by shooting above the storm, we capture by bringing storm ranger 10 to the storm. and that means giving you layers of protection. the first layer of protection, 30 miles from the radar. at that distance, the beam is very low, meaning you could see almost the entire storm.
4:18 pm
everything below 2,000 feet. the outer ring is 60 miles away. we can see everything below 5,000 feet. so if you're within either of these rings, storm ranger's got you covered. the areas served by radars are the ones most likely to get severe weather. in reading, so much hail, they needed plows to clear it. the nearest radar? 104 miles away. with storm ranger 10, we can get a lot closer than that, and detect hail sooner and let you know wherever you are before the storm hits. getting closer means more protection. storm ranger 10, only on nbc 10. now, if you want to learn more about storm ranger 10, its forecasting capabilities, how it gathers information, and about this gap in radar coverage that
4:19 pm
we have, especially in places like berks and chester counties, go to nbc10.com, tap for free nbc 10 app. i've got the list of the cities that are too far away from those stationary radars to be able to detect details. >> so this can bring us right into more accuracy. >> yes. we have to make the decision about where to send it. so for hurricanes, we'll send it to the coast. for severe thunderstorms, sometimes to the west. and in the wintertime, for rain versus snow, we send it right near the rain/snow line so we can get really precise just where the changeover is taking place. it's also great for hail. it's great for estimating rainfall amounts, too, over the traditional radars. >> all right. >> valuable tool. thanks, glenn. again, go to our app or website nbc10.com to learn more about storm ranger 10.
4:20 pm
meantime, nbc 10 continues to follow breaking news. the trump taj mahal, the owners say they're set to close it after labor day weekend because of that ongoing strike by union members. it will cost about 3,000 workers their jobs, and cut the number of casinos in the resort town of a.c. to seven. members of local 54 of the union walked out july 1st. tomorrow it will become the longest strike in atlantic city's casino era. for the phillies. >> off the field last night, it still has people talking today. an umpire's unusual move, and the reason he says he did it, coming up. plus, robbery suspect revealed. he hides his face while holding up this store. see who's under that shirt and why it came as a surprise when cops caught up with him. and signs of trouble. a candidate caught going to extremes. those stories, and much more on
