the ground and rosemary, you were inside when all of this happened. >> we were, pam. we were here for a separate court hearing. as soon as we got off the elevators to come outside and finish an interview, that's when the fire alarm went off and they told everybody to get out. as you can see, philadelphia police and fire are still on the scene here, investigating. they will most likely be here for the rest of the morning, into the afternoon. meantime, anybody who was inside the criminal justice center, the cjc, is now evacuated outside. take a look. they're waiting here on third and broad street. they're waiting for the all-clear. i just spoke to the sheriff a short time ago who told me an elevator did fall. the details are unclear. we don't know how many floors that elevator fell. but we know one woman was inside. we have video of that woman being taken out on a stretcher, being loaded on to an ambulance to be taken to the hospital. she appeared to be okay. we spoke to her briefly about what she heard, what she saw.
take a listen. >> fell down on top of the elevator. >> what happened? >> i have no idea. >> what did you hear or see? >> explosion. that's all i can say. >> reporter: similar to some of the other accounts we heard from witnesses, people in other parts of the building tell us they heard a loud thud, something like a boom. in the meantime, philly police are here. we know they're checking on security, trying to figure out exactly what happened. what caused this elevator to fall. the sheriff also told me that this elevator is used for staff members, the criminal justice system. this woman is a staff member of the criminal justice center. so this is not an elevator that the public would use. anybody coming and going from court, and that may be why there was only one person involved in this incident. as i mentioned and as you saw, she did appear to be okay, but is being checked out in the hospital. in the meantime, everybody still evacuated. we're going to continue to stay out here and keep you posted
throughout the rest of the morning. reporting live in center city, i'm rosemary connors, nbc 10 news. >> rosemary, thank you. we'll see you soon. we just learned a court hearing for monsignor william lynn is over with. the philadelphia judge has set a new trial date for may 1st. lynn was released from prison on bail two days ago. yesterday, authorities announce they'll re-try lynn who was found guilty of covering up abuse by priests. the state supreme court threw out lynn's conviction, ruling that jurors were swayed by evidence not related to the case. philadelphia police are investigating a shooting in the city's fairhill section. officers were patrolling along cambria street and near american street when they heard gunshots and found a man lying in the road. the 54-year-old man is in critical condition right now. so far, no arrests. from our delaware bureau, the treasurer for the smyrna parent/teacher organization is facing felony theft charges. police arrested kelly sullivan mcgovern. she's accused of using a pto
debit card to run up $11,000 in personal charges. sullivan mcgovern is free on bail pending a trump hearincour hearing. and the trump taj mahal will close its doors for good. tropicana entertainment, which owns the taj mahal, says it was losing millions of dollars a month and it also blamed the strike as a reason for going out of business. the striking workers have been fighting for the restoration of health insurance and pension benefits that were cut two years ago. an exact shutdown date for the taj mahal has not been set. >> announcer: now your nbc 10 first alert weather. well, if you liked yesterday's weather, you're going to love today. plenty of sunshine, once again, and low humidity. the perfect day for an afternoon baseball game. here's a live look at citizens bank park, where the phillies are hoping to sweep the san
francisco giants. first pitch is at 1:05. and you can catch all the action right here on nbc 10. nbc 10 first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here now with the forecast. glenn? >> thanks, pamela. yeah, it is a spectacular day for baseball. as you know, this time of the year, you can get some incredibly hot and humid and dangerously hot and humid weather, but not today. 79 degrees, with lots of sunshine in philadelphia now. still in the 70s throughout the area. 76 in many of the pennsylvania suburbs. 77, average, in new jersey, and pretty close to that across the rest of the area, as well. we don't see anything on the satellite radar, there's hardly a cloud in the sky, and any of those clouds are just fair weather clouds. the showers are still down in virginia, and west virginia, just where they were yesterday, not getting any closer to this area. so as we go through the
afternoon, temperatures are into the 80s, but not the upper 80s. and the humidity still slow for this time of the year. and as we go into the night, down to 70 degrees in the suburbs by 10:00, 69 in the lehigh valley. so we've got another relatively comfortable night after a very comfortable day. temperatures in the jersey shore, though, staying in the 70s with that sea breeze. we do have a lot of heat on the way for at least a part of the weekend, and some thunderstorms, too. we'll have the timing on that, coming up. >> all right, glenn, thank you. happening today, pennsylvania governor tom wolf will discuss money in the new budget, targeting the state's opioid epidemic. he'll give the details of the $10 million in new funding for early intervention involving heroin and other opioids. head to nbc10.com or the nbc 10 app for a look at our digital exclusive on the subject called "generation addicted." a philadelphia audience now has a better idea of how vice
president joe biden is fighting to wipe out cancer. >> cancer is taking your loved ones and mine, robbing them of decades of productive life. >> biden was in center city last night to accept an award from the world affairs council of philadelphia. the vice president lost his son, beau, to cancer just over a year ago. biden said his moon shot task force wants hospitals, drug companies, and scientists to share information more freely, because he said the clock is ticking. >> for everyone you've lost, every hour, every day, every month matters to someone diagnosed with cancer. >> biden says the moon shot task force is also creating more user-friendly websites to get everyone on the same page. time now for a check on the roads with nbc 10 first alert meteorologist -- or traffic

street and cardinal avenue. that will be there until 3:00 p.m. some construction that might tie you up this morning and into your afternoon. pamela? >> thank you, jessica. riders frustrated by the septa slowdown should start seeing some improvements in a few weeks. the transit agency announced its plans for getting septa cars repaired and back into service yesterday. starting august 21st, septa will roll out ten raerpd cepaired ca week until all 120 trains are back on track pap normal weekday schedule is expected by october 1st. >> good, because my trains are late every day going to work. so that's awesome. that's awesome. about time. >> septa says its entire fleet should be up and running again by mid-november. today is the last day investors can put bids in on two pieces of land in atlantic city. bader field and a water pump are

norwegian national of somali decent. and he came to the uk from norway back in 2002 when he was 4 or 5 years old. that information coming from the norwegian administration of foreign affairs. there were four other victims, they were wounded. some have been released from the hospital. and we're talking to a bunch of eyewitnesss what happened to see the event, which took place last night around 10:30, right here in the heart of central london. >> there was a body laying under a blanket with blood. and more police arrived, more police, two ambulances. police were just -- it was intense. really intense. >> and i thank god there is a lot more anxiety running through london right now. >> the u.s. embassy has not released any additional information about her, but a lot of the jitters that have come out around this are speculation that this may have had some sort of terrorism tie-in. and just today, scotland yard said that there's no indication that the perpetrator was
radicalized in any way. they're saying that there was no ideological motivation behind this attack. matt bradley, nbc news, london. go! go! go! leave your bags behind! >> scary video there. that's part of what happened inside a burning jet in dubai as passengers scrambled to escape. the emirates airliner crash landed at the airport yesterday, bursting into flames. one firefighter on the ground died, but all 182 passengers onboard escaped. an aviation expert told nbc news that wind shear may have caused the accident. happening nod, president obama will meet with military and national security leaders at the pentagon today, to discuss the fight against isis. the meeting comes days after the president authorized u.s. air strikes against islamic state targets in libya. after the meeting, the president is expected to take questions from reporters. well, health officials are

economy. >> it is affecting the image of wynwood, no doubt about that. and i understand for pregnant women, but that's being misinterpreted as, don't travel to miami. >> reporter: extend the left leg. >> reporter: at the body baby class, which isn't near wynwood, pregnant women like amanda are scared. the new normal now contains mosquito spray and long sleeves and pants going out. >> i just spent a bunch of money on amazon buying bug spray. i have bug spray in my car, my husband's car, my purse, all over the place. we're trying to do everything we can. >> that was kerry sanders reporting. the national institute of health just announced the first human clinical trials of a zika vaccine, but even if the tests are successful, it's likely to be months before one is approved. meanwhile, the florida department of health is now offering free zika testing to pregnant women.

79 at philly international. but there are some parts of philadelphia that are a little bit warmer. and we can see that with our neighborhood weather reports. there's the 79 at phl, but it's 85 at graduate hospital. 84 at center city. we've added more and more neighborhood reports to this. germantown at 80 degrees. torresdale, 80. parkwood at 80 degrees right now. now, we do see no showers, no significant cloud cover around during the day today. tomorrow's going to be another day with beautiful weather. it's going to be a little bit warmer, a little bit more humid, but for this time of the year, still pretty nice. fairmont, 87 degrees. reading, 84. easton, 84 degrees. you can see, everybody's got
sunshine tomorrow. robbi robbinsville, 85. right at the jersey shore, temperatures close to the 80 degree mark. 79 in avalon and also rehoboth beach at 79 degrees. so it's going to be a great time to get away, if you've got a chance during the day tomorrow. because saturday isn't going to be as comfortable. that's for sure. as we go through the future, tonight and into tomorrow morning, we're dry. mostly clear. tomorrow afternoon, you see one or two little showers pop up, way north and west of the area, perhaps parts of berks county or the poconos, the main action is still in central pennsylvania tomorrow afternoon. and then as we go to saturday, once again we start off dry. perhaps some clouds to start off the day, and then here come the showers and thunderstorms.
middle of the day, just north and west, earlier in the day, in the lehigh valley and poconos. so by noontime, the lehigh valley and poconos may be clear out of this and here come the showers and storms in the philadelphia area. increasing as we go throughout the afternoon. it's going to be hot and humid. that may help build up some pretty strong thunderstorms, later in the day on saturday, if you're headed to the shore, keep that in mind. it's not going to last very long, so it's certainly not going to ruin the whole weekend, but it does look like it's going to affect at least a portion of the weekend. there's the temperature as we go through saturday. feeling closer to 100 in philadelphia because of the high humidity. and just that one band of showers and storms moving through. sunday, nothing but sunshine, lower humidity, warm at the
shore, mostly a land breeze on sunday. the rain chances just spike on saturday, philadelphia, down in delaware, and it gradually goes up a little bit on friday and saturday. allentown, actually a little bit lower for allentown on saturday than it is in other parts of the area. atlantic city has the highest chance of any kind of rain. so as we go through the ten-day period, there's that heat and humidity saturday. drying out sunday. monday is nice and comfortable, but look what happens next week. it starts heating up and temperatures get way back into the 90s. and we'll be right back.
happening today in delaware county, villanova fans can get their picture taken with the 2016 men's basketball championship trophy. the trophy will be on display as part of the philadelphia's freedom nova night tennis match at villanova university pavilion this evening. the freedoms share a home court with the reigning basketball champs. and before we go here, glenn has a final check of the weather this afternoon. >> yeah, and we have another day, a lot like yesterday today. tomorrow will be pretty close. saturday's going to be nothing like it. it's going to be hot, it's going to be very humid, and a thunderstorm before a nice day
