5:02 pm
are we getting out of here tonight? she goes i doubt it. i'm going to go ahead and change my plane till tomorrow. and i'm going to leave the airport and start walking. she had told me everything's closed. there's no way you're going anywhere. but i thought if i -- we walked a little bit, my aunt and uncle live in dannia beach, five minutes away they could get us someplace. while i was doing that, someone yelled shots are fired and all the police started running down terminal 4. and the police were yelling get down, get down. i continued to run to my mom. my mom is 75 years old. i didn't want her to be by herself. when i got to her, she was yelling for me. and at that point, they were telling us to get behind the bar. so there were probably about 15 of us hidden behind the bar for, i don't know, five or ten minutes. >> tracy what's running through your mind at this point? >> i'm sorry? >> what's running through your mind at that point? >> it was surreal.
5:03 pm

5:04 pm

5:09 pm
that's why there's a first alert for those areas, along with inland new jersey and delaware. closer to the beaches. good bit of the day tomorrow is going to be affected by this. the heavy snow totals six inches or more right at the coast. and, of course, that will cause dangerous travel at the peak of the storm. you can see the area of snow and radar it's growing moving toward the northeast. there's a sharp edge to it. it's not going to be snowing everywhere in our area. the lowest chances are in the poconos, lehigh valley and burkes county for any kind of snow. 5:00 to 9:00 a.m. it begins at the shore. heaviest snow at the shore during the morning hours for the most part. and heavier snow inland, including the philadelphia area, relatively heavy, because we're not going to be getting much here around the midday hours. it moves offshore. 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
5:10 pm
5:30 in the morning, it spreads up to the north. the darker blues indicate the heavier snow. it's already starting to taper off at 1:00 in the afternoon. the amounts of snow, generally six plus cape may county, extending it down toward philadelphia's one inch. i'll get more specific on how much you're going to get in your neighborhood a little later. looks familiar, right? this is how many of us started our friday. many here in wilmington didn't have much trouble clearing the snow from their cars. it was pretty light and powdery. >> some schools opened late because of the snow. the bus in chester county had no problems. it was a pretty scene, really in glenmore where the grass was covered in a blanket of white. >> most of the snow is gone now, while some areas brace for more, we all need to be ready for bitter cold temperatures. >> let's check back in with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> it is balmy now, compared to what is going to be happening
5:11 pm
here by sunday. it feels like it's in the 20s for the most part this afternoon. but it's going to be colder than that. later on tonight, we're feeling like we're in the teens by tomorrow morning, some places down closer to 10 degrees during the afternoon tomorrow. near 10 degrees. all day tomorrow it's going to feel close to 10 degrees. and then it gets colder. saturday night, now we're single digits and into sunday morning, we even have some negative numbers. minus two. west chester, minus one in potts town. sunday, it doesn't warm up a lot. it's still fevieling like 7, 8 degrees in the middle of the afternoon. there will be warm up next week, but this weekend, all together, is just going to be brutal.

5:13 pm

out millions. it was nearly three years ago when philip holland, working as a delivery driver went for call in west philly. after dropping off a cheese burger he was confronted by plains clothes police. but haulenolland thought they w robbers. >> he thought he was going to be robbed. >> reporter: holland tried to drive away, the officers opened fire. a case of mistaken identity that left holland fighting for his life. >> i hope everyone plays for a speedy recovery. >> playing tha day i see you get. hopefully in good health. >> reporter: his co-workers told us then they didn't know if he'd survive. now three years later, he's taken his case to court. today won a $4.4 million settlement. >> this is the largest police misconduct police shooting case settlement in philadelphia history by far. >> reporter: as part of the settlement, all plains clothes

5:20 pm
our area tomorrow. now, normally, we get storms that have kind of a sicircular p to them when the low pressure is intensifying. it's going to be a sharp cut off line between heavy and no snow in our area as well by the time it gets here. some of the snow could start by 5:00 a.m., even in cape may county, maybe even earlier in parts of delaware. it does extend inland. the heaviest snow at the shore in the morning to midday hours. else where, around the midday hours. and then moves offshore later on during the afternoon. now, you can see the hour by hour by 5:30 in the morning it's snowing in cape may. look at the temperatures. very cold for a snowstorm. and that means a fluffy kind of snow. not going to stick to trees or power lines. you'll be able to brush it off
5:21 pm
the cars. so it's easier to handle. and that means all snow at the shore. normally we have questions of rain versus snow. not this time, it's all snow. 10:30, heavy snow in dark blue at the shore. starts to end from west to east. places like the poconos allen town, lancaster may get nothing out of this. or very, very little. then it moves offshore later on as it gets even colder. the amounts of snow i'm predicting, six inches or more around cape may county and sussex county in delaware. dropping down toward one inch in philadelphia. let's get a little bit more specific with the six inches plus, lewis and georgiatown and sellbiville and bethany beach. wildwood. cape may courthouse, in that six inches plus, we're closer to the
5:22 pm
six inches in atlantic and ocean city as well. inland, three to five inches, further to the north and west, vineland and clayton, we're talking about two to four inches. further to the north and east you could see long beach island at six inches plus. it's obvious the closer you get to the beach, the more you're getting. the closer you get to the poconos the less you're getting. ben salem and philadelphia with an inch. norristown and west chester also. newark, delaware, right around an inch. in delaware, itself, we have snowfall ranging from one inch to over six inches. dover and smyrna and river view getting a few inches as well. of course, down toward southern delaware. that's where we get the most. and that's where the biggest impact is going to be at the jersey shore and the delaware beaches. and that's pretty high on the
5:23 pm
impact scale because of the high accumulation, visibility gets real low. it gets really slippery on the roads. it's going to be pretty dangerous out there in parts of the region. and the moderate impact in the inland areas of new jersey and delaware as well. now, we have temperatures that are going down, we have winds that's going to be increasing. it will feel like near 10 on saturday and closer to zero on sunday. >> all right, glewe'll check ba in with you. it's not the season for amusement parks but one park is expecting thousands tomorrow. that's next.

5:32 pm
the national guard in puerto rico for six years and served in iraq. he was discharged for unsatisfactory performance. that's when he moved to alaska two years ago. the shooting began in terminal two of ft. lauderdale's airport. you see a layout of the airport. terminal two is the red one at the top on the left. let's give you a closer look at terminal two. all unfolding inside baggage claim in that terminal. the airport is still closed at this hour. >> we're not sure exactly when the airport will reopen for operations. we're going to work together with all the law enforcement that's here. our airlines and all the other agencies before we actually move to reopen up the airport. >> and within the past few minutes, we've received this first picture of the suspect. that, again, is esteban santiago. as for a possible motive, several federal officials are saying this appears to be a case of a mentally disturbed person, not an act of terrorism.
5:33 pm
five people dead, eight injured in today's shooting at the airport in ft. lauderdale. that's the latest live in our breaking news center. jim rosenfield. >> thank you, we have crews following the latest developments from here and also in ft. lauderdale. let's go to andrea cruz live at the airport now. she is from our spanish language station in ft. lauderdale at the airport. that airport is still shut down at this hour. when we last saw andrea during our 4:00 hour she was on the highway and an eerie seen out there. no cars around the highway shut down, the airport is shut down, traffic not going in and out. air traffic or otherwise. she's down there keeping an eye on the situation for us on the ground. hopefully we can get to her as soon as we can. she's going to keep an eye on the situation. >> that's right. we'll get to her as soon as possible as she continues to
5:34 pm
collect the dexterity of the feed she's sending back to us. we'll continue to following developments from ft. lauderdale. look for up dates on the nbc 10 app and facebook and twitter. let's get an update on our big story tonight. snow and bitter cold. the first alert radar shows the next round of snow headed our way. but that snow isn't going to reach all parts of the region. >> no, the cold certainly will, though. we've got all the details for you in your neighborhood forecast. here's chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> quite a variety of weather across our area tomorrow. it's a backwards storm because the show will get the most snow. no real doubt about that. the first alert for the coastal areas, new jersey beaches, inland, new jersey and inland delaware as well. much of the day tomorrow is affected by this. and heaviest snow could be six inches or more at the coast. and that's really going to cause some problems for travel. you can see the snow area
5:35 pm
continuing to grow and spread a little bit. but there is a northern edge to this thing. it's not one of your classic coastal storms that comes up the coast and spreads all the moisture back westward. it's just not going to happen that way. here's the timeline, the snow begins around 5:00 in delaware. a little bit later in parts of south jersey at the shore. the heaviest snow at the shore during the morning hours into midday. around the midday hours, the most significant snow, if it is in the philadelphia area would be around that time and the snow moves off shore during the afternoon. the temperatures are low throughout the area, throughout the storm. so it means a fluffy kind of snow. it also means it's not going to collect on tree limb and power lines. you don't have to worry about that stuff. there we are at noon. some of the heaviest snow may already be exiting toward long island. and then ending as we go through the afternoon.
5:36 pm
so it's going to be a cold day, but not nearly as cold as it's going to be on sunday. there's the six inches plus, cape may county down to sussex county, delaware, and it just keeps gradually going down until you get near philadelphia. sometimes in cases like this, the gradient gets even tighter and so some places 20 miles apart could have differences of one to six inches, for example. we'll get more into your neighborhood weather a little bit later. >> we want to show you a picture right now from cape may and the jersey show. you can tell by the flag, a little bit windy. >> that's about to change as we prepare for more snow headed our way. brian thompson shows us how everyone there is bracing for another round of wintry weather. >> reporter: loading up on ice melt at the only hardware store in seaside heights. even with the going out of business sale, few takers. >> you would think at 50% off people would be coming in here
5:37 pm
just at the beginning of the winter. >> reporter: if we get the snow tomorrow. >> they'll be in. >> reporter: if they see snow on the streets here, a reverse 911 call going out tonight. >> we got to get to houses with ambulances. there's problems that come with a lot of snow. >> reporter: despite some businesses still open, shoveling at their entrances there was just enough snow else where on the board walk to make the going on the icy side. walking could be hazardous. >> very careful. i almost slipped already. >> it improves your core and your stability. gives you a test. >> reporter: a challenge. >> a challenge, yeah. >> if you're crazy to be out here it should be at your own risk. >> reporter: no risk on the beach, just traces of snow surviving the storm here. if we get the snow they're taking about, the board walk will be impassable probably at that point. south jersey roads will be difficult. but once you get past that, the storm does not look like it's going to be any problem for
