>> how will the fbi investigation s affect the race? >> it galvanizes the bases of each of the candidates, this association with anthony weiner, the fact that there's 650,000 e-mails to go through, it just raises a lot more question marks for republican voters who may have been on fence. >> the comey letter was a blast that you could hear on the moon, i think it was more fire works than heavy artillery. a lot of flame and a lot of spark and it spooked a lot of people. there's no hole blown in the side of her campaign here, as bernie sanders said, these damned e-mails have been out there for a year and a half, everybody's made up their mind what they mean and this isn't to move the needle.
>> as you see their cam pain is reeling, they want to blame jim comey for their own problems. they're struggling and they're trying to figure out what in means. >> you mentioned fireworks there, many people have been talking about the letter, the preliminary inquire that fbi director james comey has already delivered to hillary clinton. what do we think about this investigation? how was it handled here? good, bad? >> bad, jim comey is a good man who made a very, very bad mistake. he did three things wrong. he, number one, injected the into the middle of a president into the middle of a presidential election. he number two now isn't fixing the hole that he dug, isn't telling us that he knows
nothing, because he knows nothing yet. and number three t double standard between what happened with anthony weiner's lap top and the investigation into paul manafort's connection s with russia is simply unacceptable. it's up to the american people not to let this mistake tilt the playing field. >> jim comey was a career prosecutor, he was a assistant united states attorney, the deputy attorney general and now the fbi director, president obama himself called him out on what wonderful integrity he has as a human being and as the fbi director and supporting his fbi director. i think the only people that need to look in the mirror are the clintons on this thing. they were the ones that had e-mails covered under the shroud of darkness on a private server. they were the ones that commingled foundation work that
commingled personal work and government work all into one. the clintons have to look at themselves not jim comey on this. >> we have to take a pause, i feel like we're going down a rabbit hole right here. mark alderman, jim schultz, thanks for taking the time. >> thank you. >> thank you. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> well, today you probably notice a little bit of a warmup. right now we have overcast skies. live look out at rehoboth beach, but we're dry, so these clouds you're seeing outside, we're not seeing any rain moving in, we have a nice warmup as we go into the middle of the week, so tomorrow and thursday, we're going to be back in the 70s. right now we are a little bit warmer than we were yesterday at this time, but we did make it into the low 60s this afternoon. everyone seeing the overcast skies. 58 degrees philadelphia and many of our south jersey

city, maybe trenton. many septa passengers are stranded at this hour as some regional rail trains sit on the track. coming up, the latest on this septa strike. plus, held for ransome, a family simply refuses to turn over a lost pet, what he wanted in return. she ate like a pig. trump has said and done... you can do anything.
i moved on her like a [bleep]
...trump's just so disgusting and degrading. it just seems like he's invaded our lives. and he's the republican nominee
for president. and republican brian fitzpatrick supported trump. look, we just can't vote for fitzpatrick or trump. house majority pac is responsible for the content of this advertising.
a live update ahead as we continue to follow this story. that live update at 5:30. want you guys to listen to this one. you're not going to believe it. a family who lost their cat got a call that their cat lefty had been found. >> they were surprised and angry about what the caller wanted for the estranged pet. >> the caller demanded $50 for their kitten's return. a family member who doesn't want to be identified says the caller told them, no cash no cat. >> this is an adult and this is a child's kitten that you held for ransom and that you made us give $50 zlr5$50 for. >> the man said the $50 was repayment for cat food and medicine. >> we want to get you back home, we're going to continue to follow this septa strike, that's causing more headaches
pat toomey and donald trump: they're just wrong for the women of pennsylvania. "new fallout for donald trump." "should a woman be punished for having an abortion?" "there has to be some form of punishment." "for the woman?" "yeah, there has
to be some form." "i would support legislation in pennsylvania that would ban abortion
this line really came together in the last 30 minutes, many of them trying to get home after work and the regional rail trains are the only ones working. i took a closer look and saw that septa workers didn't let passengers into this area without checking their ticket first. i'm told officers are working 12-hour shifts. we spoke to a couple of passengers as they left they trains. >> i thought it was terrible. i heard the stories, i just saw the line out there, my god. >> i'm just trying to get to 30th street. the people can't get off the train for the people going on the train. >> reporter: it was jam packed? >> people getting on the train, you can't even get on. >> reporter: we spoke to a woman who was so frustrated she left.
a l >> a lot of people in her same boat too. last night i was there overnight when they began at the sheraton hotel in center city. the question today, are they talking? >> well, we are told that both sides are currently inside this sheraton hotel, but say they are not talking at this point, they are in discussions for the next couple of hours. at frankford station, subway operators, bus drivers are saying that -- >> they're refusing to even accommodate us or meet us halfway. >> reporter: but septa says that negotiators are ready to talk. the biggest sticking point, the employee pension plan, state and city leaders calling on both sides to make a fair deal. >> this is something that's bad for everybody and it has to end.
>> we're urging them to continue to talk and continue to work on this and we understand that people are upset and they should be because it's very inconvenient. >> the last septa strike took six days, now concern this strike could impact election day, keeping voters away from the polls, septa will seek a court injunction ordering a halt to the strike on november 8. >> i'm not going to speculate on any type of legal -- i read today that septa was thinking about doing something, but we're not urging them to do that. hopefully by election day this will be resolved. >> workers don't want to addition rupp the election, they hope this will end soon, but they want a better pension and a better contract. >> we're out here fighting for what we deserve. >> reporter: and i can tell you within the last 30 seconds or so, the union spokesman actually came outside to speak to reporters, he tells me, in the past 30 minutes, they did actually get a new contract
offer from septa, but said they rejected it out of hand immediately, they're saying there are basically there are no changes they can agree to. at this point the strike continues. >> let's talk about the effects now of that strike, take you up to sky force 10 for a bird's-eye view of the roads right now. >> you have been in the air for more than 90 minutes now, tell us what you're seeing. >> low going for a whole lot of folks trying to get home tonight. take a look at this, when the broad street line is close eclo what do you do? for a lot of people you drive into center city. it definitely seems a slower crawl on this stretch of broad through philadelphia right now, a combination of the septa strike and the disruptions on city and regional rail, it seems
for quite a few folks looking at these pictures, using cars is their only option to get home during this evening commute of strike die number one. we're tracking it live from sky force 10. >> slow going, no doubt about that. let's help you get around. >> a lot of trouble out there to talk about. nbc 10 first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington has more on delays and cancellations. >> septa just tweeted from their official twitter account, that the regional rail crews are in position to operate the trains, the cancellations are subsiding, but you should still expect some pretty significant delays. because of that strike activity, most of the regional rail services are dealing with some of those delays and also overcrowding. a lot of extra passengers trying to overflow on to these cars. lands dale dealing with at least
60-minute delays. the trenton line is dealing with crew shortages as well. so they're dealing with some cancellations and overcrowding as well. where most of that stuff goes is on to the road. here the vine street expressway, our cameras right around 8th street. we have cams around the area, showing the schuylkill expressway and on vine street moving through center city. this is a little bit further west, it intersects with the schuylkill express way, you can see pretty significant delays moving in or out of center city because all of these overflow of cars are now on the roads. >> all right, and we're going to continues to show you how commuters are finding their way around during this septa strike.

or lift. >> we have been checking in with nbc 10's tim furlong, when we first saw in the 4:00 hour, we saw him picking up somebody around the penn area. now he is making his way 76, with his passenger. have we got him? >> reporter: we took 95 actually, we came up -- >> we're going to take it back from tim furlong right here. he's trying to go live in the back of a lift car. >> a lot of people are doing this, they're the roads, so we're going to try and get him back and see how far they have gotten. but at least it's not raining today, because that can make things a lot worse for a lot of people waiting for taxis
outside, we have some warmup in the forecast some 70s coming by tomorrow. some areas could make it close to 80 degrees and we could be looking at record highs as we go into thursday. now the rain will be returning also on thursday, mostly the second half of the day and after that rain clears out, we have a colder weekend setting up. also don't forget, we're going to fall back, so set your clocks back one hour sunday morning. so it's going to get dark outside earlier as the colder temperatures start moving in, 60 mt. holly, 57 degrees wilmington and vineland. but tomorrow will be warmer than today. the clouds are moving in, we have seen the overcast skies this afternoon, but no rain with any of these clouds, expect no rain until thursday. tomorrow another dry day, but look at today, the fairground
area, 72, swanksville could get to 73, redding could get to 73 degrees for a high. long port 70. dover 73. and newark could get to 75 degrees. so a nice, comfortable day tomorrow, certainly one of the warmest days out of the week, but our warmest is going to be on thursday ahead of the rain. take a look at what's happening here, the cold air moving up to the north. that warm air is going to move through on wednesday afternoon. now you notice the rain moving in from the north and the west. that should be here right around the evening commute for much of the area. that's all part of a cold front. that's 5:30, i think we'll have some showers, there's a potential for some thunderstorms too, as we go through thursday evening. clearing out as we go through friday, but that cooler air starts to drop down. but it's going to be a colder end to the week, in fact entire weekend is going to be cool.
80 is the record high in philadelphia. 78 is the forecast temperature. trenton could get close to a record high temperature. but of course we'll be watching all those very closely. so for tomorrow, 75, as we go into thursday, 78 degrees, but again that 78 is going to hit before the rain gets here, rain mostly around the time of the evening commute. morning commute so far does look dry. 58 degrees as we go into friday, so it is going to be a chilly end to the week once that warm air moves to the south. sunday, 57 degrees, still a cold weekend, and tuesday by election day. we'll have a cloister look at your neighborhood weather coming in. >> for us, seven days to go, but

problem is you're not going to have lift tomorrow, are you? you see this great guy and his rates from very reasonable. and a very comfortable seat. but are you going to ride lift tomorrow or are you going to have to do something else? >> i'm to have the take the regional rail or something. >> we're not looking for you to take sides, obviously for anybody that rides, they're saying i just to ride. what do you have to say to the people at the table who are trying to settle this thing out. >> settle it fast. >> are you cooking anything? should we stay? >> i was going to make some tacos, taco tuesday. >> reporter: taco tuesday. i made a new friend, that's a good day at work for me. thank you so much for having us tag along. i made a new friend, we have a long ride back. i'm hanging out with stacy, my
