11:01 am
newsroom. let's get to glenn "hurricane" schwartz with the latest on the path. >> the official advisory has come out not more than a couple of minutes ago. it is still a tropical storm, but it's close to hurricane strength. it is obviously looking better organized and is likely to become a hurricane. the track, a little farther east than yesterday, but it's also more likely to stall out in the ocean, not too far off the jersey shore, monday through wednesday, which could cause some additional problems next week. the local impacts, a little bit eastward track, less rain north and west, but the rain and wind also looks like it might linger at the shore through labor day, itself. he's the latest. you can see everything spinning around. it looks more like a real tropical storm. just want to give you an idea of the size of this thing. and if you're driving from philadelphia down to north
11:02 am
carolina, that's a pretty long drive. that's a very large area, that is being covered by this. now, let's take a look at the latest 65-mile-an-hour winds. it's accelerated. it's moving a little faster towards the coast. and it is going to make landfall. a civil emergency has been declared in part of the big bend of florida, as a result of this. it is expected to become a hurricane, and there's the track. by friday evening, right look the north carolina coast. and just offshore, as we go through the day sunday, this is saturday morning, down in north carolina. that's still too far away, probably, for rain. but as it gets closer, yeah, it's going to be affecting the area. the possibility of it moving or tracking west of philadelphia really is diminished right now. here's the latest various computer models. again, very good agreement for a
11:03 am
while. and then right near the north carolina coast and then watch what happens here. instead of straight lines that move out to sea. we see the little curving so that's an indication of the storm slowing down, and in some of these cases, you see little loops in here, meaning a total stall of the storm, as we go into monday, which would make the rain linger, make the winds linger, cause more coastal flooding in -- at the jersey shore. this is the futurecast. you can see the center of it quite clearly. and as we go in through friday, there's obviously no threat. there's friday night. this is just updated, as well. and into saturday morning, we are still on the dry side. but as the storm gets closer, the rain gets closer, as well. more on the timing of this storm and who gets what, coming up. >> all right, thanks for that,
11:04 am
glenn. folks in florida are bracing for even more rain and flooding, as hermine barrels towards the gulf coast. as you heard glenn say, it could reach hurricane strength by the time it makes landfall. nbc national correspondent, sarah rsa sarah rosario is in cedar key where people are being told to heed the warnings. >> reporter: here in cedar key, we are just south of where tropical storm hermine is expected to make landfall early tomorrow morning. and already, there are several watches and warnings in effect. one of them is a hurricane warning. with this storm gaining strength, the threat for tornadoes and storm surges and flash flooding, all of that increases. >> then the car went -- and there was like a jump in the road, i don't know. and water sloshed over the hood and it stopped. >> reporter: the rising water there forcing some people out of their homes, as others scrambled to get sandbags all in an effort to keep the water out. >> getting ready. >> yeah? >> getting ready. got the sand, got the gas for
11:05 am
the generator. >> reporter: florida governor rick scott has declared a state of emergency for most of the state, this as local officials have barricaded roads in flood-prone areas to keep drivers from getting stuck. and with many stores and schools closed, residents are being asked to stay inside and, of course, off the roads. if this storm does make landfall as a hurricane, this will be the first in florida in 11 years, believe it or not. and we are expecting an update from governor rick scott at some point this afternoon. reporting in cedar key, sarah rosario, nbc news. >> let's take another look at hermine. with rain in the forecast for the holiday weekend, now is the time to make sure you have the free nbc 10 app. our first alert meteorologists are constantly updating the app with the latest information. and in just minutes, glenn will return with his updated forecast. some other news this morning that we've been watching, i-95 south in old city now open after being closed for hours. the tie-up was all because of an accident involving a big rig and
11:06 am
a fire truck. the crash happened around 3:00 this morning, as firefighters were responding to a two-car accident on 95. this is just under the chestnut street overpass. this is exclusive video you'll see only on nbc 10. our photographer, pete kaine, was on 95 and saw the accident happen in his rearview mirror. >> normally when i come up on an accident, the firemen are the ones that are going to help people. it was just so eerie that they were the ones that needed help. i mean, they helped each other. they went back to the cab to make sure that the tractor-trailer driver was okay. make sure the people in the cars were okay, even though they were injured themselves. so it was like -- it was something different to see. >> reporter: again, our photographer, pete kane there. five firefighters did go to the hospital. they went to hahnemann with nonlife-threatening injuries. three have been released. two are still being checked out. the truck driver is recovering at jefferson hospital.
11:07 am
six minutes past 11:00 on this thursday. let's get a look at the roads. >> we're doing great right now. here's 95. let's take a look at that. very different from what we saw this morning with the roads being closed for hours. southbound from wood haven road to the vine street expressway, so towards center city, only dealing with a 13-minute trip. average speeds in the 60. but more so on the westbound pseudo, headed towards the schuylkill expressway. our cameras around 24th street showing you that, as well. and also watch out for some of those preparations for the made in america festival that's this weekend, around spring garden street between pennsylvania avenue and all over the ben franklin parkway. a lot of closures there. so you will see some major delays and being rerouted through the center city area, you'll see some delays there, as well. out in souderton, an accident on broad street and that might cause some delays. right here you can see the ben

11:09 am
so it's very important. >> this is what it will look like as it's installed back on to our vehicles. >> reporter: once finished, the new beams will be installed on the trains and then stress tested, septa engineers using heavy bean bags to simulate passengers. >> this entire cycle takes 12 days. and it's really, really up and moving. >> reporter: septa says this is a brand-new design that shouldn't fail in the future. already, four of those faulty cars have been fixed. and this morning, they're back on the tracks for the very first time. >> the first cars are coming out on to the system as fast, but as safely as we can to service. >> reporter: what this means for riders is that septa is saying mid-october is the new timeline to get those trains back on a normal schedule. in bensalem, randy gyllenhaal, nbc 10 news. today, you will see even more road closures in center city for this weekend's budweiser made in america festival. here's a live look at the ben
11:10 am
franklin parkway where the inner lanes are closed between 20th street and eakins oval. beginning tonight, a stretch of 22nd street will be reduced to one lane. it's one of many concert road closures you can find right now on the nbc 10 app. road rage sparks a shooting on south street. last sunday, two people got into an argument after this black bmw nearly hit another car. moments later, somebody in the bmw got out and shot at the victim's vehicle several time before leaving the scene. police are now asking anybody with any information about this crime to come forward and call police. this morning, firefighters rescued a person trapped in a burning home in bucks county. the fire started just before 2:30 this morning ton charleston place in warwick. when firefighters arrived at the scene, they quickly put up a ladder to get a person trapped on the second floor calling for help out of the house. the up townhome was destroyed and the flames severely damaged the adjoining townhomes.

>> > right now, tropical storm hermine is churning in the gulf, heading for florida. this is drone video over cedar key, showing the conditions there this morning. hermine is expected to reach hurricane strength before making landfall tonight, or early tomorrow. and then it's headed in our direction. nbc 10's first alert meteorologist, glenn "hurricane" schwartz is tracking the storm and will have more on the impact to you are o region just ahead in a few moments in his full forecast. an explosion rocks the space-x site in florida during a test launch this morning. a few hours ago, a team at cape canaveral air force station was testing the unmanned rocket when the blast happened. the rocket carrying an israel satellite was scheduled to launch on saturday. there are reports that buildings miles away shook from the explosions for several minutes, but fortunately, no one was
11:15 am
hurt. now to decision 2016. one day after his trip to mexico, donald trump is stumping at the american legion convention in ohio. trump told the group gathered there this morning that he and the mexican president spoke about stopping the illegal flow of guns and people across the border. >> and to take out the cartels, have to get rid of those cartels. and we have to do it quickly. our country is being poisoned. >> trump also told the crowd he would push to make sure every american student knows how to recite the pledge of allegiance. all eyes were on trump last night when he delivered a long-awaited speech on immigration to a roaring crowd in phoenix. since the speech, though, contradictory reports have emerged about what happened during his meeting earlier in the day with the mexican president. nbc national correspondent, hallie jackson, reports. >> reporter: in front of a fired up crowd, a fiery donald trump trying to clarify his
11:16 am
immigration stance. >> anyone who has entered the united states illegally is subject to deportation. >> reporter: for the roughly 11 million undocumented immigrants living here, no legalization. >> you can't just smuggle in, hunker down, and wait to be legalized. not gonna work that way. >> reporter: the gop nominee promising a new deportation task force within i.c.e. trump going after hillary clinton. >> maybe they be able to deport her. >> reporter: and reiterating his most consistent campaign pledge, building a border wall. >> and mexico will pay for the wall. believe me. 100%. they don't know it yet, but they're going to pay for the wall. >> reporter: that confidence, coming despite a disagreement just hours earlier over who would cover the cost of a wall, after a surprise sit-down with mexico's president, enrique pena nieto, trump saying -- >> we did discuss the wall.
11:17 am
we didn't discuss payment of the wall. >> reporter: the exact opposite of what pena nieto tweeted later. quote, i made it clear that mexico will not pay for the wall. a dramatic and diplomatic shift in rhetoric from the gop nominee. just one year ago -- >> they are not our friend, believe me. >> reporter: now -- >> i call you a friend, thank you. >> hillary clinton calling it a photo op. >> it certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours. >> reporter: trump insiders tell nbc news, the candidate insisted his visit happened the same day as his big immigration speech. both trips showing two types of trump. in mexico, a softer touch. >> we had a very substantiative, direct, and constructive exchange of ideas. >> reporter: in arizona, a harder line. >> we will break the cycle of
11:18 am
amnesty and illegal immigration. >> all right. now to the democrats. vice presidential candidate tim kaine is stumping in new hampshire today. right now, supporters are waiting to hear from kaine at a campaign office in dover. kaine will be making several stops around the state today. overseas, italy's premiere has appointed a reconstruction czar to oversee rebuilding following that devastating earthquake. italian rescue workers are racing to repair a road that's leading from the city of la aukilto to amatrice, which has been cut off after last weak's earthquake. firefighters and other workers are working to repair the road, hoping to open it to traffic by the end of the week. the quake killed at least 290 people and left 4,000 homeless. well, very clear that tropical storm hermine is
11:19 am
strengthening and it's likely to become a hurricane before it makes landfall. you can see the latest pictures and you can see the swirl. but let's see if we take a cross right through this, just to give you an idea that most of the action, most of the rain is on the right side of the storm. if it stays that way, that, of course, would help give better weather to, let's say, pennsylvania areas, portions of our area, as opposed to the shore. the eye is becoming a little better defined. and once we see an eye, that's a pretty good indication that it, indeed, is a hurricane. we're also seeing the thunderstorms start to wrap around the center. so it's getti ting better and better organized. it's over extremely warm water. so there's very high likelihood that it's going to become a hurricane. all right, take a look at the latest computer plots. as opposed to yesterday, they're starting to spread out. generally, as you get closer to
11:20 am
the storm, they're supposed to get closer together. there's more agreement. there's greater likelihood. but now there's a wider range of possible solutions. by saturday, it's obviously going to be south of us. again, it's a large storm. you can't just take the point. it's not a point. it's a large area. 100, 200 miles. and by sunday, what you're seeing is a curvature toward the jersey shore, even in the ones that are farther out to sea, that's curving. this is all an indication of a lot of models showing this storm stalling. we're taking little loops around and what that does is it keeps the effects lingering, especially at the shore. that increases the threat for coastal flooding. and for bad weather on labor day itself.
11:21 am
latest coordinates, right there, it's 65 miles an hour max winds. speeding up a little bit as it approaches the florida coast. there's the latest track from the hurricane center. stays inland, until it gets to north carolina. 50 miles an hour tropical storm. now, here's where the problem starts. now, saturday, 8:00 a.m., down here. sunday 8:00 a.m. it's up here. that's a pretty good movement. but this is every 12 hours now. that's not moving very much. it's not that far offshore the center could be even closer, a little bit farther out. but it's already too close to not affect us. it will affect the area. the farther east it is, the less impact it will have. this is the futurecast, the latest model, just in. friday afternoon, i mean, nothing's close. we're fine friday.
11:22 am
beautiful day, friday. friday night, still pretty clear. saturday, now the rain's starting to get into the area and, obviously, better chance of heavier rain toward the shore, and better chance of drier weather north and west. so here's what to expect. saturday, the rain comes up in delaware and south jersey late in the day. the rest of the area gets some rain at night. now, lehigh valley, berks county, may not get very much rain at all. if it stays on that more eastern track. sunday, the rain becomes heavy at times, especially from philly eastward. windy, especially at the shore. monday, the rain and wind continue at the shore, and gradual clearing inland. so that's the latest difference. things extend into monday, especially at the shore. and less of an impact north and west.
11:23 am
>> all right. thanks for that, glenn. >> 11:22 now on this thursday. we use them for everything, from making calls to taking photos, but could your cell phone also help you lose weight? see what the new data says, coming up. and what was supposed to be a small get-together in new jersey turned into a wild party packed with hundreds of teens. we'll explain how it got so out of control, next. katie: on crime, pat toomey's attacks on me are shameful.

narrator: katie mcginty will keep us safe -- more police on the streets, better training and equipment, and take on the gun lobby for gun safety laws. katie: i'm the daughter of a police officer, and the mother of three. i'll stand with law enforcement to fight crime, and protect our families. i'm katie mcginty, and i approve this message.
11:26 am

i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. there's a race going on right now. the world's clean energy super power's either going to be germany, china, or us. and i'm going to make sure it's us. from 500 million solar panels installed by the end of my first term, to precision manufacturing. we'll beat the competition and create new high wage jobs. we can do this, millions of jobs right here in america. that's my plan. but how did we end up here? his mom thought he had the flu and that he was covered by the meningococcal meningitis
11:29 am
vaccine he had received. until 2014 there were no vaccines for meningitis b in the u.s. now there are. while uncommon, meningitis b can lead to death within 24 hours. trumenba is a vaccine for 10 through 25 year olds to help prevent group b meningococcal disease. trumenba should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects were injection-site pain, fatigue... headache, muscle pain, and chills. ask your doctor or pharmacist about all the risks and benefits of trumenba and tell them if you've received any other meningitis b vaccines. meningitis b can be spread by typical sharing like... a drink... a spoon... a kiss. it all started here... it might have been prevented with trumenba. ask your doctor or pharmacist about trumenba. 11:29 on this thursday.
11:30 am
warnings are going out all across florida, as folks there prepare for tropical storm hermine to make landfall. residents are being told to stay inside, and most importantly, to stay off the roads. yesterday, florida's governor, rick scott, declared a state of emergency for 51 of the state's 67 counties. now, we could feel the effects of this storm during our holiday weekend. nbc 10's first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz has more on that and the path of this storm. glenn, fill us in. >> yeah, rosemary. it does look like saturday is going to be the safest day for outdoor activities and travel across the area. the latest headlines here, it's close to hurricane strength. 65-mile-an-hour maximum winds, 10 miles an hour more and it becomes a hurricane. the track a little farther east than the track that was issued yesterday. but, it's also more likely to stall, not too far off the jersey shore monday, tuesday,
11:31 am
and even into wednesday. and the impacts of all of this means less rain north and west, it means better weather for sunday and good weather for labor day, and the rain and wind linger at the shore, into labor day itself. and maybe even beyond. this is the latest satellite and radar combined, with the storm, and you can see the swirl and the center becoming much better defined here. but look at the size of this. these heavy bands are over 200 miles away from the center. the northern bands are 142 miles from the center. hurricanes are not a point. and so when we look at the track, we're not just saying, oh, it's missing. no, it's 200 miles one way. 150 the other. so keep that in mind, as we look at this picture here. 65-mile-an-hour maximum winds, moving a little faster than it
11:32 am
was earlier. and there's no doubt that it's hitting florida later today, possibly as a hurricane, and then the problem is the stall. this is 24 hours from saturday morning to sunday morning, and that's sunday morning to monday morning. that means it stalls. that causes other problems. i'll get into that a little later. >> we'll see you shortly. thanks, glenn. >> let's take another look at hermine with that rain that's in the forecast for our holiday weekend. now is the time to make sure you have the free nbc 10 app. our first alert meteorologist, including glenn "hurricane" schwartz, are constantly updating the app with their latest forecasts. glenn will return with more on the weather in just a few moments. now let's check our nbc 10 headlines. septa plans to return to a normal regional rail schedule by mid-october. for the past two months, the transit agency has been working with a bucks county company to repair defective beams on dozens of cars. this morning, four of those

11:34 am
minors. state corrections secretary, john wexel, tells us the transition may be difficult for jones and the others being released. >> they're going back to a world they know nothing about. you know, in cartoon parlance, they came in in the flinestones era, they're getting out in the jetsons' era. that creates a lot of anxiety. >> jones was released from a prison in schuylkill county just a few hours ago. he spoke with nbc 10's tracy davidson just minutes after his release and she sent us some of those photos of him reuniting with his family. you can hear her interview and jones' plans for the future coming up this evening on nbc 10 news at 6:00. the 2017 nfl draft is coming to philly. this will be the first major league sports draft in philadelphia since the nhl draft in 2014. nbc 10's pamela osborne tells us about the financial boost that the nfl draft could give to the city. >> rosemary, all of the details

11:50 am
starting to get close to seeing an eye, which would indicate a hurricane, so it's obviously getting closer and closer to that look. it will continue to strengthen, before it hits land. the center of it is still offshore. 65 miles an hour winds, as of 11:00. moving 14 miles an hour to the north-northeast. so it's moving a little bit faster. the track takes it inland, as a tropical storm, later on. but here's the track problem. it's not just where it is, it's the timing of it. here's saturday, 8:00 a.m. north carolina. sunday, 8:00 a.m., wait, that's a long distance. it's traveling pretty fast. another 24 hours, it's hardly moved at all. by monday morning, labor day, it's still offshore. and as we go into tuesday
11:51 am
morning, that's where it's going. in two days, that's as far as it's gone. come computer models show it's stalling or even circling around, and coming back. here's the futurecast. no problems during the day on friday. that will be the nicest day of the next several. and even saturday morning is likely to be okay. the clouds will increase, the rain will get a little closer. obviously, it will hit delaware and south jersey sooner and it will last longer in delaware and south jersey. saturday, the rain, delaware and south jersey during the day. the rest will see some during the night. the rain heavy at times on sunday. that's the worst weather day for most of us. the rain and wind at the shore on monday. monday could still be a bad day. even tuesday at the shore. the gradual clearing inland. now, we still have a few showers
11:52 am
left across the area from this morning, near the lehigh valley, going into northern bucks county. the futurecast shows some development during the afternoon, a few showers, maybe even a thunderstorms, but totally unrelated to the tropical storm. so as we go through the night tonight, by 6:00, there's no more threat of thunderstorms. so look at these temperatures. nowhere near 90 this afternoon. you don't see the showers of the lehigh valley, but we do in delaware and new jersey by 6:00. by tomorrow morning, things have cleared out, quite a bit. and the forecast for the labor day weekend, saturday, this is rain comes in generally at night, for philadelphia. earlier, at the jersey shore and delaware. sunday looks like rain. these are -- this is rain and wind for south jersey, jersey shore and delaware, and even on monday, i may have to amend some

of those forecasts to keep rain and wind in, especially near the jersey shore in delaware.
