5:00 pm
breaking news right now at 5:00, septa is in court asking a judge to stop the septa strike, the breaking developments come amid mounting concerns about the strike and it's potential impact on election day. first we're going to head to breaking news in east falls. >> george spencer is at the scene of a huge water main break. george? >> reporter: if you are not at the tv, take a look at this, a massive water main break has turned this shopping plaza into an urban river. you can see the people shopping there, huddled up along the edge of the building, and as our camera widens the view here, you get a sense of a perspective of how large in water main break is. all of the shoppers at shoprite, some of them going under water. you can see the flow that is just coming out of it, actually
5:01 pm
submerging some of those smaller cars closer and this right here is the source. obviously you can see a massive water main break that is still very active by no means under control. this is an east falls fox street at roberts street in the shoprite plaza, the shoprite that a lot of people who live in east falls know about. and it's the same shoprite plaza that has had water main breaks almost at this scale in the past. this is a water main break that is dangerous. as we pan back out and wide on our view, you can see that minivan there, and that white car towards the bottom of your screen, obviously you see the water creeping up higher and higher on that. we do know that the fire department is here on scene, we have seen them walking some people very cautiously through this moving water to safety. we do not know about any injuries, but we can tell you
5:02 pm
the fire department is here responding, this is a water main break in east falls that at this point is definitely still growing and from this perspective, you can see just how large it is. we will be overhead monitoring it for the next couple of minutes, that is the latest, though, live for now in sky force 10, i'm george spencer, nbc10 news. now to randy gyllenhaal on those breaking developments in the septa strike. >> randy, quickly run us through what's happening here. >> reporter: septa had initially said they only planned to file an injunction to get workers back by election day. but in the past hour, a huge announcement, they have filed this 50-page lawsuit in the court of common pleas, seeking to put an end to the entire strike. and you can hear the traffic frustration behind me. right now here at the city hall, a hear under way, septa says they're bringing in witnesses, real people impacted by this
5:03 pm
strike, but they have got to prove to a judge that the strike is causing a, quote, clear and present danger to riders and the region at large. >> that it constitutions a clear and present danger to the health, safety and welfare of our riders. >> septa says the four-day long strike has already caused severe hardship, concern that as it drags on it could impact the electi election. they also site people trying to get to medical help. >> there's too many things at stake right now and we have to come to some type of agreement. >> reporter: septa says despite this new court action, negotiations are continuing. the union says they're speaking more pensions and longer break times. >> we're not fighting for us, we're just fighting for
5:04 pm
whatever's left of the american dream. >> but voters in filly are concerned about what might happen if there's no transit on election day. >> i feel like the people who are most affected are people who cannot afford uber and people who cannot afford to get to the polls. >> reporter: septa's news conference happened at their headquarters on market street and not at the sheraton hotel where all those negotiations were happening. i did reach out to the union for comment, so far i have not heard back. the union says they have been served with those court papers. i also asked for signs that those negotiations are breaking down, but they say talks are continuing despite this lawsuit. >> randy, thank you. and as you just mentioned, a judge listening to arguments right now about whether to end the streak. nbc10's drew smith is inside that hearing, as soon as it ends
5:05 pm
he he'll give us more details. people made their way along state street, you can see the sunshine is going to stick around today. >> and taking a live look right now at cape may, not exactly beach weather, but it's pretty beautiful out there, and you can expect a beautiful weekend at the shore as well. nbc10 first alert meteorologist sheena parveen with us now. >> kind of like today as we go across the weekend, but tomorrow morning, that's when we're going to be the coldest, right now we're at 60 degrees and sunny in delaware. wilmington seeing that 60-degree temperature, 67 through the lehigh valley. the rest of the area in the upper 50s. if you're in spring city, your temperature is 59 degrees, by 7:00, dropping to 51. clear in spring city, nice fall view there. big area of high pressure keeping us dry, really pulling in that cold air from the north,
5:06 pm
so by tomorrow morning, once that air really spreads across and is settled, we'll be in the 30s in some spots. so by tomorrow, 8:00 in the morning, patch frost through the area and morning temperatures will be right around the upper 30s. it's going to be a cold one to start your weekend, you will need a jacket in the morning. i'll show you the rest of the weekend forecast and a warmup as we go into election day next week. let's get to some breaking news we told you about at top of the news cast. >> reporter: this water main break is causing a cascade of water, you can see the tremendous amount of water that is spilling just over this one side of the shopping plaza as we
5:07 pm
widen back out, we can take a better look at some of the better elements of this parking lot. this is an area where the water department has confirmed they have had two other major water main breaks in just the past couple of years. you can see the water spilling here around the backside of the shoprite, down on to those railroad tracks, the last major water main break at this same location, 7 million gallons of water flooded that east falls parking lot area, the same area that is being flooded again, now, that was a 48-inch mane th firefighters are helping to evacuate the shoprite shoppers. you can see that tremendous amount of water, some of them are actually encountering cars, that you can see there, towards the left of your screen, cars that are at least partially submerges as this water main
5:08 pm
break continues to spill likely millions of gallons of water. that is the latest in sky force 10. and george, last time we saw you, we also saw a lot of folks that seemed to be stranded, so we have got these cars that are partially submerge d and we hav people that had been shopping in this shoprite plaza that looks like they have been stranded as well. have you seen these people able to get out? >> reporter: it looks like from our perspective, that the evacuations have been safe. what we have seen, kind of right there, amy as we continue to zoom down towards the edge of this parking lot is fire department crews who have helped some of the shoprite shoppers who are there huddled along the building, you can see a few of them there to the of your screen, a couple of people even at the bottom of screen, wading out through the water. it looks like it's getting close
5:09 pm
to their knees. fire department crews have been working here as well to safely bring people out to their cars, assuming they are going to cars that are still drivable, not some of the more submerged cars. although the water main break is certainly continuing at this point, from what we have been able to tell, it looks like the fire crews are able to keep these people safe. >> what about the people on the other side of the building, we see here that they're gathered at the corner, on the other side, there are some folks that are gathered. how are they? >> it's kind of hard, this is a large enough building, keith, it's hard for a chopper to get all angled. but as far as these shots right here. we have people that are just huddled up alongside the building, i guess waiting until they are either escorted across this urban river by fire crews or until the water main actually
5:10 pm
gets closed and shut down. but at this point, it looks like, although the water main break is certainly not under control, it looks like for now these people are safe huddled up on the edge of this building with the water moving in other directions, but at this parking lot exit, you can see how much water there is and how much of it is flowing, even right now. >> george, have you been able to see any water crews that are on the scene? we know that firefighters are there, but, you know, this is really a gigantic water main break and it is going to take some time to actually get to the source of this and shut off the water. so this is going to be a big repair. any indication that we have repair crews that are trying to get to this? >> reporter: we definitely know that the water department is certainly aware of this and we certainly must imagine that they have repair crews here on the way.
5:11 pm
but i think you're right, the larger point here is certainly why there have been so many water main breaks in this same location again and again. have covered the previous water main breaks on the ground as a reporter here. it is definitely safe to say based on what i'm seeing visually, that this is of same scale of the previous water main breaks. the last one we covered was 7 million gallons of water spilling out of a 48-inch main in this location. this one looks to be more or less on the same scale. you see shoppers, like this person there, a guy with it looks like a lady on his back, carrying their groceries, tramping through the water that goes well above halfway up his shins trying to get out of this ware here. not something you would re recommend doing, but it looks like these people have made it
5:12 pm
to the edge of the water. this is on the scale of the other water main breaks we have seen at this location. >> chivalry isn't dead right there, he's trying to get to his car before his car is covered by water. that 7 million gallon water main break was june of last year. george spencer is reporting for us live in sky force 10. george, thank you. and as we go into the weekend, temperatures are going to get a lot colder to start your saturday, nice, dry conditions, i'll show you your weekend forecast and what you can expect if you're heading to the polls next tuesday. that's coming up next. i approve this message.

5:16 pm
this is an impressive scene from above. you can see this 48-inch main just spewing a tremendous amount of water, covering the shoprite parking lot here, and as we zoom in towards the middle of your screen, you can actually see some of the rescue crews that are using that boat to ferry people out of that shoprite, who have been shopping and as you can see this white minivan, significantly submerged. the firefighters are bringing a life vest out. theoretically interacting with the driver or this white minivan, getting rescued by this crew right now, this is the white minivan that we have seen parked since we have been there, and the water level has now risen over its back bumper. so this appears to be a
5:17 pm
real-time rescue of one of the drivers. as we wide on back out, we can show you where this is orange natu originating in this parking lot. you can see even at this moment, at least a good 10 or 15 minutes that we have been on the scene. this water main break, and there's been two water main breaks in the past that have spewed millions of gallons on to the streets. you get a sense of what is an ongoing situation here in east falls. rescues continuing with crew s ferrying people by boat during this this water. >> george if you could take us back to that rescue at that minivan, we saw a lot of people that had made it to their car,
5:18 pm
but was stuck in their car, it like he was in that boat right there. rescue crews have gotten that driver out of the car. >> yeah, erin, this seems to be a gentleman who has been parked there since we have been overhead. fire department crews have been tromping through this knee high water to ferry this man out of his minivanover to dry land. this gentleman taken actually out of his car, rather than out of the store and then ferried by raft over to the edge of this water. but the amount of water covering this shoprite parking lot is just tremendous and certainly in part, it's not water that you would want to walk through, when you have millions of gallons of
5:19 pm
moving toward in an area this small, it can be quite powerful, at least in some areas, and certainly that's what these fire crews trying to rescue people are trying to prevent to have someone who might succumb to this water as they're trying to walk through it. >> we witnessed people walking through, it appears the water was up to their ankles. now you see on those rescue crews, it's up to their knees. as you tilt the camera down, you can actually see some of the cars, sedans that are completely submerged. this is water is rushing and gushing, you can see the crews continuing to walk the boats back and forth to the shoprite. george keeps referring, by the way, 2015 in june, that's when 7 million gallons of water flooded out of a 120-year-old water main, it was 48 inches wide. so you take a look at this, very similar, george.
5:20 pm
george spencer is in sky force 10, thanks for reporting. >> absolutely. now your nbc10 first alert weather. >> well, the rest of the area seeing chilly temperatures and skies, looking out over rehoboth beach, nice and clear across the area, the entire area seeing clear skies. and the combination of clear skies, calmer weather tonight and cold air is going to drop us into the 30s. and some frost as we go into your saturday morning. many of our p.a. suburbs in the upper 50s. south jersey neighborhoods, mostly in the upper 50s. 58 degrees vorhees, medford, 58, and if you're in florencefloren

5:22 pm
several days will be seasonal, the average high is 60 degrees. now we look at tuesday, for election day, if you're he headed to the polls, temperatures dropping down into the upper 60s, a cool start in the morning, by lunchtime, the low 60s already, and by 8:00 p.m. when the polls close, we should be in the low 60s by then. good news is we're saying nice and dry. by sunday, 61 degrees, pennsylvania suburbs. if you're in delaware, temperatures will be right around 64 degrees. sunny stretch across the weekend. that goes into the beginning of next week, so for your monday, a little bit cooler upper 50s, but we will be staying nice and dry. a closer look at your neighborhood forecast coming up. we're continuing to follow breaking news in philadelphia's westph falls section.

5:32 pm
jessica boyington is also keeping track of the problems on the roads around this water main break. >> you can actually see that that water has not been stopped so as the water flows on to the roads, they will be closing this area. that's on roberts avenue. they'll probably just close those roads right now, there's alternates, the bad news is this is unfortunate timing. west park, hunting park avenue, 3-mile-per-hour average right there. allegheny avenue right here, 5-mile-per-hour you can see over here we have broad street, that's 8 miles an hour as we saw on broad street because of the septa strike because the broad street service isn't running.
5:33 pm
we're seeing lots of cars. roberts and avenue fox chase is where you need to avoid. we have seen these images from sky force 10 of the water main break. kaley, you're there, thank you for joining us, what does it look like? >> mainly people trying to clean their cars out because the ones that was affected, they got out in time but still had water damages. you see some ambulance, firefighters trying to get people out of the stores that remain in the store. the water is still slowly coming out, but i believe they're trying to shut it down there.
5:34 pm
>> were you in the store or were you shopping nearby? >> i was in the dry-cleaning store where i work and we are just watching it play out. >> from the air, we can see based on the perspective of the car and the people, just how high the water are. have you seen people, probably their pants and jeans all covered, right? >> it was about knee deep closer to the store where it started, so around that area is deepest. as you start coming uphill where our store's at, there's no water. down by the store, it's knee deep. >> you went through this last year, what is this like for you, is this déjà vu that this is
5:35 pm
happening again? >> they had massive construction right there so we thought it was fixed, but obviously it wasn't. i was working then too. >> you know, we're watching video right now that we had taken earlier, some people getting closer to the water, some people trying to get through it. the water above the floor of these beds, aaa says that means your car is probably done. how does that compare to the last two times? are you seei ining more people stranded, more people being rescued? >> once one person yelled that there was a flood, they get out of the stores as quick as possible trying to get their car out, some people did get to their cars, but as you can see,
5:36 pm
there's still some that are covered. >> these unbelievable pictures that we are seeing and the waters is not even just in the shopping center, but really shooting out the back site and on to some train tracks below. this is not the first time this has happened, a 48-inch main, that's 120 years old. just unbelievable pictures. thanks for speaking with us on the phone. we're going to stay on top of this breaking news story, as we have people stranded inside and outside of this shopping center and the water main still has not been capped. so we'll stay on this story. we're also following breaking developments in the
5:37 pm
septa strike. septa announced that it has filed an emergency injunction seeking an immediate end to the walkout. >> the stock has caused people to miss critical medical appointments, is making it impossible for some disabled residents to get to facilities for specialty care and get assistance with fundamental life care matters. >> and septa also argued the strike would make it difficult for people who work and who vote to make it to their polling places on election day. within the past few minutes, the union released a statement saying they will fight the request for an injunction, quote, tooth and nail. a judge is listening to arguments right now. drew smith is inside that hear, as soon as it ends, he'll join us to tell you what happened and what it means for you. a massive water main break in philadelphia's east falls section. >> just take a look at this view from sky force 10.

5:44 pm
5:45 pm
if you're not near your television, you got to take a look at these pictures of a water main break. some cars were practically under water. >> george spencer is live at the scene of this massive water main break george? >> reporter: and they're in a major development since we spoke
5:46 pm
to you guys last. the flowing water has been stopped. the philadelphia water department has been able to halt the flow out of this may have been. incredible damage already been done by the millions of gallons flowing out of this water main. look at the rafts, we have been watching them ferry shoppers from the shoprite store, they have just brought one person out to the edge of the water there. as we pan up to the back of the store itself, you see not only the cars that are still submerged in the parking lot, but the remaining people who are waiting under that awning in front of the shoprite store. also worth noting, some of the water has flowed away, you can see it's closer to ankle deep, down from the knee deep that we have seen originally.
5:47 pm
that is because the water main has been shut off. as we pass the other stores here, you see the spot with all the silt, right there towards the middle of your screen, all that soil and silt, that's where the water main break originally occurred. that is where when we were over this seen earlier, we saw the massive amounts of water flowing out of the ground, as you can see now, that has stopped, but you can see the significant amount of damage caused this to shopping plaza. as we pan back out, you can see just how large this water main break is. the cars remain submerged. there have been water main breaks in this same plaza before. last time nbc10 covered a water main break here, the broken main was 120 years old. so certainly you can imagine the other mains nearby are about the vintage.
5:48 pm
these are now new pipes that are breaking under the shoprite plaza and causing all this trouble. >> all you need is about a foot of water or water to come up past the floor of these cars. have you seen any of these people able to pull out the cars that were actually partially submerged? >> reporter: there's a pretty distinct difference here, you can see some of the cars in the dry spot of the parking lot, which if the people can safely get to them, they will be fine. the water never got to them. but let's pan to some of those cars that are more deeply submerg submerged, you can see that car that's sticking out in the middle of the water pornding there. that is just a low sedan, and the water which is receding from it's peak, that car it looks like is near the bumper. so enough water to cause some
5:49 pm
serious damage to cars that have been parked out there. the shoprite has been through this two times in the past, with a major water main break, millions of gallons on a similar scale to this, that causes a lot of damage to their inventory and of course a big problem to the shoppers who are in there at the time. as we have said, the water has stopped flowing, but you can see some significant damage, certainly to people's cars who were parked in the water's path. and as we zoom in, you can actually see a couple of people who are willing to get their feet wet are actually headed out to their car right there and they do have their groceries with them. they're being escorted by firefighters and water rescue crews. >> as crews are making progress and folks are starting to get to their cars, george spencer, thanks for that, but a big cleanup still ahead. the owner of that shoprite, we have her on the phone. sandy, thanks for being here
5:50 pm
with us. when did this all start and what did you guys hear or see? >> well, i'm not actually on site and i haven't been able to talk to talk to the people that are inside the store, and as you can see, they have been quite busy, i don't want to distract them from what's going on there. but this time, just like the very first water main break that you all were discussing earlier, it's cost us over millions of dollars to repair, not the first one, the second one, all of it. we seem to have contained the water in the front area of the store. so it won't be as much damage as we have had before. but it's just very frustrating that unfortunately, the water company has not been able to properly repair this, and it just keeps happening. >> must be déjà vu times two, of course. >> we have not heard of any
5:51 pm
injuries, does it appear that anyone has been hurt? we're looking right now at some live images, sandy, but people coming out of the store, walking through that water right now. we're going to make sure that we keep our viewers and of course everyone who might be a family member of one of those people there we're going to keep them apprised of what's going on. sandy, we appreciate your time. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> and you're watching breaking news on nbc10, that massive water main break and of course the water rescues from the flooding. watching rescues as they happen right now. firefighters carrying someone over the water there, others wading through on their own. amazing video coming in, count on nbc10 as we gather more information from our crews on the ground and in the sky. katie: my mom was a restaurant hostess
