tv NBC10 News Today Weekend at 530am NBC September 3, 2016 5:30am-6:01am EDT
we are tracking tropical storm hermine after battering florida and as you can see now the carolinas, this storm is heading our way. we will have new information on its path next. our worst threat from hermine is along our coast, officials at the delaware beaches and jersey shore are warning people to tie it down or stowe it away before the storm gets here. and philadelphia is keeping an eye on hermine and the rain it could bring during the made in america festival which starts today but so far there are no special plans in place to deal with the wet weather. good morning. this is nbc 10 news today, i'm rosemary connors, it's 5:30 on this saturday. we are following two breaking stories of course the approach of tropical storm hermine and a shooting investigation near a popular shopping area in atlantic city. we will get to that in just a moment but first let's get right
to meteorologist krystal klei she has the latest on the track of this tropical storm. >> we are looking at an update to that track just came in at 5:00 a.m. so we've been working with our map to make everything right on the board here. take a look at the information we've got. 60 mile per hour winds, those max wind winds with tropical storm hermine at this point moving to the east-northeast at 21 miles per hour. so heading our direction, following the track as we expected it. now, if we pull out and look at this track projection we're moving from your saturday to your sunday morning. still going to be sitting down to the south and the southwest of us, but as we move sunday morning through your afternoon 65 mile per hour winds, strengthening a bit here and also the track showing us that it gets much closer to us. now, this is a cone projection meaning this is not the exact path it may take, it could go into this zone potentially. by monday 2:00 in the morning forecasting up to 70 mile per hour wind speeds.
we're looking at very high winds and they will extend to us. when you have those high winds you have the large swells that goes along the shore and it lifts the wave height, storm surngs when that water starts to push inland that's where the flooding concern comes from more so than the rain itself. we continue this track tuesday morning now winds up to 70 miles an hour. that would be hurricane speed. notice as we continue to move forward this thing just hanging your monday, tuesday, even wednesday right near us, stalling leads to longer potential for that coastal flooding, more on that coming up. >> thanks for that, krystal. now to that breaking news in atlantic city. police are investigating a shooting near a popular shopping area, this is the second incident in this area in just a week. nbc 10's pamela osborne is live in atlantic city this morning. pam, what have you learned since the last time we spoke to you? >> reporter: well, rosemary, we did move, right now we are on
arkansas avenue, we did see one person be taken into police custody, i will just get to that in just a moment, but take a look right now, we are outside of the caesars parking garage, this is the general area that you're looking at right now, police have this area blocked off, you can see i counted about a dozen evidence markers on the ground there, this scene itself here in atlantic city this morning is pretty expansive, we have seen several armed officers with their long guns out rushing into this area, we saw a special team of officers in special gear roll by this arkansas avenue location and take a man into custody. there are multiple police departments and law enforcement agencies on scene this morning, police on the scene are not talking right now other than new jersey state police confirming that this is a shooting investigation. now, just a couple blocks up at the bass pro shop, that is where the police staging area is right now, we are reaching out to our contacts this morning, working the story from the ground.
as soon as we get more details about the nature of the shooting we will be sure to update you and pass that information along to you. for now live in atlantic city, pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. now back to our coverage of tropical storm hermine. down the shore people are preparing for the possibility of coastal flooding, high winds and beach erosion. in brigantine homeowners put up this mesh fence to protect their properties from high tides and some folks got their boats out of the bay before the town closes its boat ramp at 2:00 this afternoon. folks in delaware are also preparing for what hermine has in store for them this weekend. some people we spoke to canceled their plans, others are hoping for the best. >> many have been setting up their tents and trailers at the indian river inlet, this is just south of dewy beach. the director of the delaware state parks tells us if you are going to be in this area this weekend make sure everything loose is tied down and all your
awnings are stowed, they will blow away and somebody could get hurt. many say they are here for the water and fun and they are just going to try to ride out the storm. >> we are just hoping for the best, see where the hurricanes are, either they keep going or they die out. so see how this goes, ride it out, if it gets too bad we will just go somewhere else. >> officials with delaware state parks say if you want to cancel your reservation they will be very liberal with their cancellation policy. it's going to be a busy weekend in philadelphia with the made in america festival, right now there are no plans to change the concert schedule right here on the ben franklin parkway because of the weather. if you're driving in center city be aware there are a lot of road closures right around the philadelphia museum of art. just go to the nbc 10 app for those details. emergency management officials in philadelphia tell us that they are keeping an eye on hermine and will alert the public to any dangers, but it's
a rain or shine event for this concert, up to 100,000 music lovers could be at made in america this weekend watching rihanna, coldplay and dozens of other bands. some are coming from far away, we spoke to one concert goer from nebraska that tells us they are prepared for the weather. >> got the poncho, always prepared. every year you always have to expect something crazy. >> if you are heading down to made in america septa may be the easiest way to get to the festival. as i mentioned there are a lot of road closures to, again, public transit may be your best bet. there will be extra trains running on the regular weekend schedules, also the center city trolley tunnel will stay open. you can check out all the schedules on nbc.10 and the nbc 10 app. if you don't have it downloaded
yet download it now, you can track hermine, of course, the weather is going to play a real part in everybody's plans in weekends. you will get weather alerts sent to your phone and mobile devices and track the realtime developments on this storm's path. in other news on this saturday morning a woman who claims bill cosby sexual assaulted her is pushing for a new bill that would eliminate the statute of limitations for rape and sexual assault in california. the woman will hold a news conference with her attorney, gloria allred, next tuesday to urge the state's governor to sign the bill. all red represents more than 30 accusers of bill cosby, many say the alleged assaults happened in the '70s which is outside the legal time frame of when a criminal case can be filed. criminal charges were filed against the comedian in montgomery county before the 12 year statute of limitations there expired. cosby is accused of drugging and sexual assaulting andrea constant. cosby has pleaded not guilty in this case.
days ago prosecutors argued that a taped conversation between cosby and constant's mother should be provided as evidence because cosby suspected that he was being taped. earlier cosby's lawyers moved to suppress the call because they say it was illegally obtained and recorded it's unclear if the judge will rule on a call during a pretrial hearing scheduled for this tuesday. nbc 10 will be there for that hearing. 5:38 on this saturday. we continue to track hermine as the tropical storm approaches our area. up next, how it will impact our holiday weekend, especially the dangers that it may pose along the shore. and later the bacterial soap your family uses could be pulled from store shelves. we will tell you why the government has told soap companies to clean up their act.
this system truly is. we've got that perfect comma shape, when a well-defined storm defines itself you see that comma formation along with the right side of the system being the heavy hitting side. that's very typical for us to see in a tropical storm. that's why it's so dependent on this track because if the track is close to us we may get some of the brunt of the rain, but if it shifts a little farther out to sea that's when we don't get as hard a hit with the showers but at this point the models giving us those showers moving right into our area as we move forward. now we zoom in more closely, it looks like our system might be updating. so these are the buoys out to shore right now where the system is sitting where hermine is sitting. look at some of these wind speeds, 54 miles per hour, waving at 16 feet, 56 miles per hour, waves at 10 feet, 15 feet, 14, these are some very high wave heights that we're seeing thanks to the large swell that's
created from hermine, all the high winds help to push that water up to the shore and with nowhere to go it builds those stronger waves. we continue to track further north, the wave heights not as much of a concern further north where the system has not hit its peak strength, 2 feet, 5 feet, but wind speeds 40 miles an hour, this is to the south delaware and matters of maryland. once this starts to move into our neck of the woods we will check the buoy data with us. this is a reminder, the rip current threat is going to be real. i would not suggest going to the shore or delaware beaches this weekend and if you had plans but haven't made it yet maybe turn those plans around because that threat, rough seas and the potential for beach erosion going to continue late saturday, sunday, monday and potentially through your tuesday as well. more on that coming up. >> not the best labor day weekend. still ahead, the temple owls kick off their season against a
tough army team. and the best high school football action from around the region. your morning sports including the high school blitz is next. how good? 162 likes. did i get any retweets on those green beans? yep! and they're blowing up on instagram. honey, your rump roast just broke the internet!!!! as it should. life is family mealtime and everything you need to make it picture perfect. now be sure to tag your mother because she needs more followers. ok.
life is family mealtime and everything you need to make it picture perfect. now be sure to tag your mother because she needs more followers. ok. quarter of 6:00 right now on this saturday, just about 69 degrees outside the nbc 10 studios. we continue to track hermine as the tropical storm gets closer to our area. of course you remember yesterday it made landfall in florida, worked its way through georgia, now you can see its hovering right over north carolina and virginia. we're going to continue to follow this, meteorologist krystal klei will have the details on the path and more about how it could affect our region and for how long coming up. before this, this storm caused rough surf all along south carolina and their coastline, the heavy winds kicked up choppy waves, also caused flooding along low lying roads. in other news this morning anti-bacterial soap will soon disappear from store shelves.
the fda says the soap city cannot prove that they are effective so the administration has banned 19 chemicals frequently used in antibacterial soaps. that will force the soaps off the market within a year. some research shows anti-bacterial soaps could lead to drug resistant bacteria or interfere with normal hormones. experts say plain old soap and water is enough to kill germs. a child welfare agency is investigating anthony weiner following his latest sexting scandal. that's what we're learning this morning. the former congressman has confirmed the investigation to the "new york times." this comes day after the new york post published photos that wiener sent to a woman. one showed him wearing his underwear in bed with his four-year-old son nearby. weiner is now separated from his wife huma abedin, she is a top aide to hillary clinton. brock turner the former stanford swimmer who is sentenced for sexual assault
sparked outrage is out of gentleman i will this morning. turner was released yesterday after serving half of his sex-month sentence, his case received national attention after the victim wrote a letter that sparked outrage over the leniency of turner's sentence. he assaulted the unconscious victim last year after the two drank heavily at a fraternity party. tomorrow mother teresa will officially become a saint. people touched by her life and work in india are talking about her impact on them and on others. mother teresa was traveling through india in 1946 when she decided to start the missionaries of charity order. since 1950 the order has set up hundreds of shelters that care for people whom she has described as the poorest of the poor. >> i ended up being rescued by the missionaries of the charity and mother teresa because they could provide a better care than the birth family. >> mother teresa's biographer calls her a saint who crosses all barriers of race, religion
and culture. a group from the archdiocese of philadelphia will be among the 100,000 people expected to jam st. peters square tomorrow to watch the can on zags of mother teresa, the faithful left philly earlier this week and will attend the mass. they are also taking a jubilee pilgrimage walk through rome tours st. peters. let's talk more about what to expect along the shore starting with today. rain developing as we move into your afternoon and evening. now, it doesn't look like this is going to be a heavy downpour today, this is the outer edge of tropical storm hermine, right now it's just barely sitting to the south of delaware that we see some rain already into maryland. with that winds about 15 to 30 miles per hour, minor coastal
flooding is possible. this again isn't because of the rain necessarily but because of the swells from this storm that will create those larger waves, those wave heights continue to push along the shore and that could lead to some problems. then we go into your sunday, this is really one of our first alert days here, we are looking at rain heavy at times along the shore, periods of strong storm development possible, winds 30 to 40 miles per hour with moderate coastal flooding expected. then we move into your monday. now, again, here is the situation, while the rain won't be quite as heavy it doesn't look like, the expectation is that as we continue to push those waves on shore that by monday this is when we could lead to major coastal flooding after several days of this happening, especially with the winds strengthening sunday night into monday as the track of hermine gets closest to us. the rain will linger along the shore in delaware beaches, 35 to 55 mile per hour winds, could see gusts in excess of 60 miles
per hour periodically as we move through your sunday evening into monday. now, the problem is especially for tidal flooding, when you have high tide if you get those large swells as well that's when we could see some of the biggest issues and most likelihood for damage. there is the timing for you, 9:30 this morning then again 12 hours later atlantic city, rehoboth beach. a little later each day sunday into monday here this is of major concern for your sunday into monday with the track itself being so close to us, we could see some of the highest likelihood for damage and as well in this period we could see wind damage with these storms. here is a look at radar and satellite like i was mentioning rain is just now starting to creep into the southern most portion of delaware, not yet in most of our viewing zone but showers later today should start to edge delaware and the jersey shore. for now, though, cloud coverage about 72 miles to the southwest of atlantic city. these are the potting paths that
we're looking at. through tomorrow it's getting very close but it's still out to sea. look at all of these computer models, all potential paths, all of them curving near us as we move into your monday through tuesday. this is the major concern. we are not just talking sunday but monday, tuesday, even wednesday until this thing starts to head out to sea. meaning those days can help with the continual push of water on shore, that's why we have that big coastal flooding issue that we will be tracking throughout our newscast. this is sports desk brought to you by xfinity. x 1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. >> we will show you that phillies video in just a moment. here we go. another rough right for the phills at citizens bank park. they played the braves. they built up a four run lead only to watch it disappear and have their bats go silent
