6:31 am
here's what they say happened here. the inbound norristown high speed line train was coming into the 69th street transportation center when it crashed into an unoccupied train. there were more than three dozen people on board at the time. and as you heard, some of them were indeed injured. they are at the hospital right now. we did speak to one of the passengers just after he got off that train. here's what he said happened. >> there was blood everywhere, yeah. the drivers were all banged up and there was one girl bleeding out of her face pretty bad. but, i mean, they were pretty fast, pretty responsive. the emts got there within four minutes. >> reporter: now septa says service is normal and up and running right now. you can still hear that there are other trains coming in and out of this area. this is a big hub here. you can see the market frankfort line moving behind me, so we can't see the damaged train. but it is coming into view right now. the investigators are trying to piece together exactly what happened here, what caused that one train to crash into the
6:32 am
parked and unoccupied train here. so they will undoubtedly be talking with witnesses, with the people who were on the train, also the train's engineer who we understand was one of the injured as well. so again, a lot to piece together here, but the investigation is still unfolding right now at this hour. but trains are running. live in upper darby this morning, matt delucia, "nbc 10 news." thank you. a wave of emts and ambulances rushed to the scene to take the passengers to nearby hospitals. >> and katy zachry is live at one of the hospitals, penn presbyterian in university city. >> reporter: it was here at penn presbyterian where the operator of the train was brought and treated. we are learning from septa that the train operator has been released from penn pres by teby hospital. earlier i taried to talk to one
6:33 am
of the septa workers here leaving the hospital, but he declined to comment. we learned from the mayor not long ago that all of the people injured were transported to hospitals. none of them were treated at the scene. so the other area hospitals that took in some of the patients and treated them include delaware memorial hospital, mercy fitzgerald, accordia, springfield and taylor hospital. katy zachry, "nbc 10 news." now to the impact on the morning commute for those who take the train. >> jessica boyington has been following septa's efforts to get everything running smoothly again. what is the latest, jess? >> they started right on schedule this morning from the 69th street transportation center, the first train left the terminal around 4:20, which again is right on schedule. starting about a half hour ago at 6:00, trains started operating every 20 minutes with
6:34 am
the local service only. expecting some of the delayses considering it is local service without express stops, too. it could get busier later on when we see more people out and about. but at least the trains are running every 20 minutes. give yourself extra time here. expecting to take some extra time, we have cameras near the conshohocken curve. most of the accident is in the right lane. a second ago we were stopped with police activity blocking the road. but they had to get that out of the way and now both lanes are back open on the westbound side. but we are not doing much better on the west side drive times from center city to the blue route. average speeds are in the single digits. how about we show you when we come back. this is the second train to
6:35 am
crash at the 69th transportation center this year. this scene is from february when three trains along the frankfort line crashed. four people on board the out-of-service trains were hurt. the cause of this crash remains under investigation. and count on nbc 10 for the latest transit trouble. nbc 10 was the first on the scene and first to send out a news alert to the nbc 10 app. be sure to download the app for breaking news, weather and traffic updates all the time. 6:35 and now to the weather with we are facing a double threat of heat and humidity. >> let's get the latest from meteorologist bill henley. bill? this morning we're starting with a steaminess. the high humidity is the first part of the extreme feels-like first alert for today for philadelphia, south jersey and delaware. the exception will be the delaware beaches and the jersey

shore. during the day, this afternoon from noon to 6:00, that is when temperatures will soar. the afternoon temperatures will peak in the 90s with very high humidity. that's already here and the feels-like temperatures during the afternoon will be approaching 100 degrees. now, the fog this morning with the high humidity shouldn't be a shocker with the high humidity and zero visibility in lancaster. light fog in redding down to two miles in visibility. and wilmington, down to two miles in visibility. and a little thicker in millville. the sun is up now, but temperatures are a little cooler after sunrise. that's why we are seeing the fog form right now. you can see it in the lehigh valley. this is a live view from easton with temperatures climbing up after the sun is out. the middle 90s heading into the noontime for the lehigh valley. and the fog is descending over the city. now you can barely see it. mostly cloudy at 8:00.
6:37 am
the problem is at 11:00 this morning, we'll be into the 80s. the wind out of the southwest is pumping in the humidity to the area and pumping up temperatures this afternoon into the 90s. 92 degrees in the suburbs. 94 in philadelphia. and 90 degrees in the lehigh valley, even at the shore, it will be warm in the 90s with temperatures peaking in the low 80s. so the feels-like temperatures, this is what we'll watch during the day. at 11:00 this morning, 94 degrees is what it feels like in philadelphia and voorhees. then as it peaks this afternoon, closer to the 100-degree mark at 3:00 this afternoon for burlington, voorhees, wilmington, it will feel like 98 degrees. what you won't see during the day today is storms. those storms come in tonight and that's the second alert to cover that one in a few minutes. if you don't already have the nbc 10 app, now is the time to get it because it will alert you to severe weather happening in your area.

6:47 am
again earlier this morning. jessica boyington is following that for us. the trains started at 4:20 or so, which is pretty much on schedule with what we normally see monday to friday during the week service from the 69th street transportation center. now, starting at 6:00 a.m. until about 45 minutes ago or so, trains started operating every 20 minutes with local service only. and additionally, no bryn mawr stops. but expect delays going into the important part of the morning commute. as you take the norristown high speed line, there's going to be less, at least one track not working at the 69th street transportation center. there could be overcrowding considering there's no express trains. and only local service, so keep a heads-up there. and we are still watching the july kiln expressway, the schuylkill expressway with the earlier crash blocking the lanes. drive times are going back down,
6:48 am
but it is still an hour from the vine street expressway headed to the blue route. the average speeds, believe it or not, have climbed at 11 miles per hour for the average there. so updates for you on this on social media at jessicaboyington. delays when i come back. now nbc 10 responds, a viewer says his mother's tv stopped working so he asked the manufacturer to come up with a fix. >> when that didn't happen, he contacted harry hairston with nbc 10 responds. >> when his 90-year-old mother's tv went back, mark step in to help. >> my mother loves to watch the news. she'll get up at 4:30 in the morning to start watching the news. >> reporter: his mom purchased a samsung television in mar of 2015. >> this was going to go in the bedroom upstairs for her. >> reporter: one month after the warranty expired, it stopped working. so he went online and contacted samsung and asked if it was still honoring the warranty. samsung did and repaired the tv.
