live for now in overbrook, monique braxton, nbc 10 news. no memory of the accident. that's what the engineer of the new jersey transit train is saying about last week's crash. the 48-year-old engineer, thomas gallagher told ntsb investigators the nj transit train was running six minutes late and going 10 miles per hour as it approached the hoboken station. one person was killed and 114 others were hurt when the train smashed into the station thursday morning. investigators say a data recorder that was recovered from the wreck was not working at the time of the crash. they're still trying to get to the other one. >> it's 5:03. now to an nbc 10 exclusive. the victims of a shooting rampage in west philadelphia are talking about the attack for the very first time. it was more than two weeks ago, investigators say nicholas glenn began firing gunshots, first at a police officer and then at people he encountered when he ran away. washington tells us he was
helping a woman out of the maximum level lounge when a bullet hit his leg. gant was shot in the foot after washington pushed her out of the doorway during the shooting. the lounge held a fund-raiser for both of them last night, raises hundreds of dollars. washington and gant say despite being shot, it could have been much worse. >> i'm glad we met that way. a lot of friends could have been -- lives could have been taken if i wouldn't have walked out and he would have walked in. >> i so appreciate it. i don't want to cry today. i'll try not to. >> the bar staff says they can't forget the victim who died in will help them move on from this tragedy. 5:04. new details today in the arrest of a lehigh county man accused of taking an arsenal of weapons to the holland tunnel. they had a rifle, shotgun and five handguns. in a new interview cramcy said
he doesn't regret his actions. he owned an indoor shooting range and says he forgot he had the weapons in his work truck when he went on a rescue mission to help a teenager whose friend just overdosed. his attorney says the police search that found the guns was illegal. we are tracking hurricane matthew and its impact on the caribbean. >> jamaica is flooded from the torrential rainfall. it's been battered by strong winds from the now category 4 hurricane. the storm now has its eye on haiti. we have a live picture from philadelphia international where airlines are offering free flight changes. the powerful category 4 hurricane is on track that forecasters say could devastate parts of haiti. the winds are kicking up in haiti as the storm approaches. up to 20 inches of rain could quickly fall. >> i mean, there's no point in worrying because if it's going to come, it's going to come.
you would be foolish if you didn't prepare for it. >> matthew is already one of the most powerful atlantic hurricanes in nearly a decade. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> we're tracking some of that light rain out there this morning. light rain, drizzle that we see through philadelphia. hanging into parts of the pennsylvania suburbs and now pushing over into new jersey. these showers you see, the green radar, not deep green. we're not seeing yellows or oranges. it's not a heavy rain we got moving through. we'll be left with wet roadways outside. aeready it is foggy. that's just assisting with the fog continuing through your morning hours. dropping a little further south now, just seeing the light showers move through. the light rain will pop up in spot areas through southern new jersey. we move along over parts of the delaware bay, smyrna through the bay into new jersey, you see a
pocket of heavier rain moving along this morning. otherwise it's the fog that we'll be focusing on as that moves out. that should hang through the morning hours. cloudy conditions to start your morning. looking at the forecast, as we move through, now we switch over to delaware and new jersey. you see we start in the low 60s. we move to about the mid to upper 60s by your lunch hour and midday, the lower 70s today. because we've got some breaks of sunshine expected which will allow the temperatures to bump up just a bit more. there's a look at hurricane matthew right now. this is a strong category 4 hurricane. this hurricane is projected to start to move directly to the north, meaning jamaica, haiti, cuba, all in the line of fire. so we look at that potential for it to move through and cause serious damage. the big question, though, is once it moves through our area, rather moves to the north, will it affect our area? coming up in a few minutes, we take a closer look at those various computer models showing where this may move.
models are not all in agreement and it's looking like maybe a week or more out. we'll talk more about that, the affects on your seven-day forecast and your ten-day forecast, that extended forecast. all of that will be coming up a few minutes. >> thank you, krystal. the fog may be a problem this morning. >> francesca ruscio has an update on that. >> we're waking up to a live shot in berlin, new jersey, route 30, cross keys road. i love this shot. it shows the heavy, dense fog this morning. the streetlights, these are streetlightáy actually. you see the halo glow of the fog around the streetlights. also to incoming traffic, the reflection of the headlights. i would recommend low beams out there because we are working through very dangerous conditions on the roadways. use caution and take your time. a live shot of the schuylkill expressway right around montgomery drive is this camera. more cars are starting to trickle on the roadways as we
get closer to the 6:00 hour and the heart of rush hour. this accident still in play at montgomeryville. no reported problems or delays. it's still kind of early at the intersection of welsh road and keystone drive. overall, we've been watching this for the last 40 minutes or so. drive times from woodhaven to the veen,ine, 13 minutes. we'll take a look at the vine street expressway and the major roadways when i come back. back to you. 5:09. 63 degrees. nearly a month before halloween and experts say it's time to start thinking about thanksgiving. ahead, hear which of the nation's airports rank among the worst for holiday travel. next, phone out how solar power could brighten up your commute and put an end to ice covered streets.
