i've seen what can happen as the result of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home, and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him. they drove matt out to the prairie and tied him to a split-rail fence, then beat him some more and left him for dead. in the aftermath of matt's death, my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president,

it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart. i know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising.

6:31 am
sunshine. 74 degrees. in philadelphia, we'll see a warmup from 60s to upper 70s this afternoon. partly to mostly cloudy skies. 65 degrees at 8:00. 71 degrees at 11:00. forget about the 80s but it's still going to be unusually warm for october. 77 degrees. that's a good 10 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year. chance of showers in lehigh valley and isolated showers possible for some as well. meantime, at the shore, we're likely to see more sunshine there. i'll go through the forecast hour by hour to show where the showers are most likely to pop up and where. first, let's see how the traffic is moving at this hour if it's moving with jessica boyington. >> it's moving but slow, bill, right, by the boulevard and schuylkill expressway. so the traffic that's moving towards the schuylkill is seeing a slowdown here. fortunately, this accident is now a little contained and over into the right-hand side shoulder. you can see lanes still getting by but very slow by scene. again all traffic moving
6:32 am
southbound towards the schuylkill expressway starting to see a delay. we're seeing delays from the southbound side from woodhavenen to the vine, that's going to take you 22 minutes. typically, 12 to 13 minutes. you can see on the right-hand side pretty much unaffected. but past that scene, a disabled vehicle southbound 95 just around broad street. traffic is moving quickly by that scene, vai. breaking overnight, flames hit three row homes in south philadelphia, bringing dozens of firefighters to the scene. crews had to deal with tight streets as they got the fire under control. nbc10's zianna durante is live in south philadelphia. deanna, tell us what's happening. >> reporter: right now, we can tell you that the fire marshal's office is taking control of the scene. broke out around 3:00 this more than. an apartment building near the corner of alder street and christian. you can see right now, the scene
6:33 am
is being cleared by firefighters. but the fire marshal's office is going to be traching a good look at the inside of this building. take a look at cell phone video shot by one of the neighbors. a roof deck, sources tell us that's where they believe the fire broke out on the roof of the apartment building and spread down. again, that's up to the fire marshal's office to determine. we can tell you that the streets here are very tight. the fire crew had to be on christian street and hoses brought down that street in order to get those flames under control. >> and we do have that it's great, obviously, what our folks do, it's much better to help everybody to do the work. >> reporter: now, firefighters say they are not sure if there were working smoke alarms or what it was that made all of the residents evacuate the building. we're told they were out on the
6:34 am
street before the fire department arrived. we do know one person who lived in the building was taken to jefferson hospital. we're told he had a head injury but is expected to be okay. deanna durante, "nbc10 news." are you saying you're not prepared now to -- >> what i'm saying is i will tell you at the time. i'll keep new suspense. >> that is not the way our democracy works. >> that's a key moment from the third and final presidential debate. republican donald trump refused to promise he'd accept election results. trump and clinton spent the early part of the debate discovering the issues like supreme court nominees. abortion and immigration. and things got fiery and spicy on the stage when it came to bloo wikileaks and treatment of women. >> pam, how are voters reacting? >> tracy, the majority of people we talked to have a pretty good sense of which candidate they'll choose come november. what's interesting after that,
6:35 am
the people we spoke to after last night's debate seem to agree that the debates themselves haven't swayed their opinions. overnight we caught up with debate watchers at the diner in upper darby, these are voters that could determine the outcome of the presidential debate. few of them say they didn't bother watching the debates because they don't feel like either candidate has a real grasp on issues facing everyday americans and things important for them. many of them feel a lot of distractions in the election cycle. one man likened this to a circus. the people all watched the debate last night and here are their thoughts. >> you know, i don't know who won but i think america lost. i look forward to a day in which kind of regular working class americans are represented by their political choices, but i'm not holding my breath. >> there's two candidates that have very different opinions and
6:36 am
extremely polarized. so the idea that you could be undecided at this point, it's like how are you not paying attention to anything? >> as you heard there, most of the voters we talked to say they've made a choice on who they'll choose this november. at least one voter told nbc10 that he feels that questions that both candidates still have to answer before election day. reporting live in the digital operations center, i'm pamela osborne, "nbc10 news." 6:36. 64 degrees. investigators will return to camden county today to figure out why a small plane crashed in a back yard yesterday. the single engine two-seater plane crashed behind a home on east lindin avenue. nbc has learned the pilot's name is wayne gilchrist, a 66-year-old man from delaware. his passenger, a 72-year-old man, both were taken to cooper hospital and expected to be okay. >> we have new details about
6:37 am
uber x and lyft in philadelphia. drivers are one step closer to being able to operate in the city. the state house legalized the bill offering ride sharing throughout pennsylvania. now it goes to senate. right now, they can fine uber and lyft drivers and impound  their car. state lawmakers are investigating a crash that happened in hoboken last month. one woman died and more than 100 others were hurt. the investigation becomes after an associated press review of data that showed nj transit had more accident it's and paid more in fines than any other commuter railway nationwide in the past years. new jersey governor chris christie will not appear in court to answer a citizen's complaint related to bridgegate.
6:38 am

"first alert" meteorologist bill henley has the detailses. >> some areas are going to get sunshine. some more than others. cape may, skies are mostly clear. you'll see more sunshine at the shore than, for example, you will in the lehigh valley where clouds are already in place over easton. and temperatures will be climbing 74 degrees. we'll be watching for showers. it's fine right now, but the showers are most likely in berks county and lehigh valley. showers for now are to the northwest and southwest. those are showers i'm going to be watching for later this morning. in philadelphia, expected to
