that, i guess, the likes of which we can really say nobody's ever seen before. they've never seen a category like this come in, because it came in really at a 5. all you have to do is look at what happened in the keys. >> the president also received a hurricane recovery briefing from fema and coast guard officials. >> as recovery begins in florida, experts predict the damage could equal nearly $9 billion in insurance payouts. that's after about $11 billion issed and to cover the damage from hurricane harvey. tonight, there is concern these twin catastrophes could cost you more to insure your home. >> nbc 10 jersey shore bureau reporter ted greenberg found out that insurance spikes could impact those who live miles away from the coast. >> reporter: she may be ve ventnor's mayor, but that doesn't make beth holtzman less vulnerable to insurance hikes. her annual payment was just over
$2,200. this year, over $3,400. >> it is painful. >> reporter: her home among the many in this community damaged by hurricane sandy and then repaired or rebuilt. now hurricanes harvey and irma are expected to put an even larger strain on the national flood insurance program, administered by fema, which was already about $25 billion in debt. >> it's scary. because from what you read and what you hear, it's just going to keep going up. flood insurance is going to chase people out of their homes. >> i think these storms put pressure on everyone so evaluate their homes and have homes that are going to be safe from future flood damage. >> reporter: the president of thomas heist insurance agency predicts those who don't raise their houses will pay the price. >> in the long-term, those homeowners are going to see increases anywhere between 15 and 25%. >> reporter: heist tells me after hurricane sandy, many homeowners also saw their deductibles for wind damage go up. he says we might now see that trend continue, not just for those along the coast, but inland, as well.
>> it's going to hurt everybody. >> reporter: beth hotltzman say the expense and aggravation of raising her house just isn't worth it, but faced with rising insurance costs, she admits -- >> probably won't be able to retire here. >> reporter: -- this won't likely be her forever home. meanwhile, investigators are working around the clock to make sure elderly patients are safe after the deaths of eight patients in a sweltering nursing home. they died after hurricane irma knocked out power at the facility. a criminal investigation is underway, while loved ones are demanding answers. >> it felt like 110, 115 degrees in there. >> investigators say portable units were being used to cool the facility after the buildings' main ac unit went out. some people from south jersey were planning to help nursing homes in florida, but are now being told not to come. we'll explain why their help is on hold in a live report coming up at 5:30. to this, now.
d.r.e.a.m.er indecision in washington has local college students riding an emotional roller-coaster tonight. president trump insists tonight there is no deal with democrats to protect so-called d.r.e.a.m.ers. that's after democrats seemed to say last night that they did have a deal with the white house. d.r.e.a.m.ers are young, undocumented immigrants brought to this country illegally by their parents as children, under the so-called daca program, they're allowed to stay in the u.s. and go to college or work without the fear of deportation. last week, president trump ended the program that you everoffers that protection, but tonight says he still wants to protect them. >> you have 800,000 young people brought here, no fault of their own, so we're working on a plan. we'll see how it works out. >> the sticking point here is the border wall. t the president has promised to build between mexico and the u.s. democrats said he agreed to take the wall off the table in
exchange for other border security measures. but today he says he never agreed to that and he will push forward with building it. >> ultimately, we have to have the wall. if we don't have the wall, we're doing nothing. >> and all this back and forth is bringing anxiety and frustration to local d.r.e.a.m.ers. tonight, nbc 10's aundrea cline-thomas joins uh now along the ben franklin parkway. this indecision in washington is a little bit confusing for a lot of people. >> reporter: it is very confusing, guys. and i want you to take a look behind me. you see all of these flags. it shows that philadelphia like the entire nation is a community of immigrants. and as you said, within the last 24 hours, a lot of folks is have told me, they have a lot of anxiety. olivia vazquez says that daca gave her a sense of relief. she was brought to the united states illegally from mexico when she was only 10 years old. but she monitors the news today, as her future is now uncertain. >> looking at allowing people to
stay here. we're working on a plan, we'll see how it works out. but we're going to get massive border security. >> last week, president trump announced plans to end daca, the program that allows her to remain and work in the country. >> we know that this is just part of their political game. >> reporter: last night, democratic leaders said a deal was struck with the president that would keep the young immigrants from being deported. but this morning, through a series of tweets, trump said there was no deal. but he seemingly supported d.r.e.a.m.ers, saying they've been in our country for many years, through no fault of their own. >> i got a ton of texts yesterday, like last night when the announcement was made and it was all of them being anxious. >> that anxiety is turning into action. in addition to rallies, plans are in place to better educate the affected communities about their rights. >> if i.c.e. is at your door, don't open it. you have a right to remain silent, which means, you don't have to say anything to them and you have the right to an
attorney. >> to olivia, even if daca is preserved for her, the immigration policy doesn't go far enough. >> what they're proposing is that they will benefit some of us at the expense of others. >> reporter: now, while all of this is happening, the city of philadelphia is trying to go out of its way to make sure that immigrants feel welcome here, documented or otherwise. we're going to show you how. that's coming up at 6:00. for now, reporting live in logan square, aundrea cline-thomas, nbc 10 news. we're live right now over breaking news in philadelphia's olney section. police on the scene of a shooting there. this is second street and olney avenue. you can see some law enforcement officials gathered there. looks like an alleyway behind a row of homes. the victim, we're told, was rushed to the hospital. so far, no arrests. we have new details about the chain of events leading up to a local college lacrosse
player's death. attorneys tell nbc 10 today that mccrae williams was at an off-party campus hours before he was found unconscious inside of his dorm. an autopsy found williams dead from blunt force head injuries. but investigators don't know how he was injured. a source close to the case tells nbc 10 easton police have started interviewing fellow students. turning to your first alert weather right now, and you should keep your umbrella close, no matter where you are heading tonight, or really tomorrow, too. a look right now, broad street and center city from our kimmel center campus camera. what's left of hurricane irma, you can see it there pushing off on the radar. >> let's talk to first alert meteorologist tammie souza now. we've got a lot of rain to contend with there. >> you know what, it's going to come and go. you'll have showers coming and going. if you have one of those
itty-bitty foldup umbrellas, slip that in your pocket or purse. you'll need it periodically through saturday and now the models are hinting at very early on saturday morning. these are pesky showers, certainly. and very rarely are they going to provide a heavy downpour. maybe a brief, steady downpour. you can see some spotty showers popping up around the philadelphia area. if you're out here in philadelphia, even out perhaps towards maybe chestnut hill, you are looking at some showers. chester, a shower there. westchester, charles town. these are just very brief. ef-wi we have clouds out there. it's kind of soupy and humid. we're in the 80s. and you can see this widely disorganized batch of showers be a little rotation to it. that's what's left of irma out there. so this is what we're going to be planning on watching for the next several hours. we'll drop from 81, where we are now. we'll see all those clouds, could see a spotty shower. 74 at 8:00 tonight and at 11:00 tonight, 71. it is going to be a muggy night out there, so we will talk about that. and of course, i'm going to be talking about more about jose, a hurricane that could now affect
us when i come back in just a few minutes. >> all right, we'll see you then, tammie. in the meantime, pennsylvania going broke. that's the word from the state treasurer's office. the money is expected to run out tomorrow. the treasurer's office says the state won't be able to pay its bills, that includes a $2 billion monthly medicaid payment to medical providers. a raucous return today for members of philadelphia's city council after a group of protesters interrupted their first day back to work. activists from the group called philly for real justice shouted and interrupted the public comments portion of the meeting. the organization calls for police reform and a better relationship between black communities and law enforcement. the sheriff's office says five people were cited for disorderly conduct. if you have anxiety, you can now treat it with medical marijuana in delaware. today's bill also removes that requirement for a psychiatrist to assign an application for

the system is broken in pennsylvania's at-risk children aren't safe. that's the conclusion after a year-long review of pennsylvania's children and youth services. a new report called state of a child was released today. it said case workers investigating child abuse were underpaid, inadequately trained, plagued by high turnover and face dangerous conditions. 46 children died, nearly 79
almost died in the state last year. and one of those children was 14-year-old grace packer. packer was murdered as part of a rape fantasy. her adoptive mother and her mother's boyfriend are charged in the case. state lawmakers have called for a probe into the state's foster care policies after packer's murder. it's important to note, she was placed into foster care by a for-profit foster care agency, not by the state. hundreds of mourners gathered in nashville today to remember troy gentry. fans and country music artists packed the grand old opry to remember him. gentry died last friday. the helicopter he was in crashed in medford. the ntsb says the crash was caused by engine problems. the pilot, who was also killed in that crash, reported those problems shortly after takeoff. >> what i wanted to say more than anything is how much i admired watching troy and eddie
when they hit this stage, whether it was here or the ryman, and how many people you could tell came just to see them. >> the popular group little big town also performed at today's memorial. more activity today at the statue of former philadelphia mayor frank rizzo. you can see the swarm of police surrounding the statue in center city around 8:30 this morning. let's take a live look right now of what the statue looks like from our camera on top of the comcast tower. pretty unchanged. just a few people out there, you can count them, maybe six or seven. this week a new statue has people buzzing. this hair pick topped by a black power fist is just feet away from the rizzo statue. it was installed by mural arts philadelphia. the sculpture is titled all power to all people. it's part of the mural art's new public art in history project monument lab. it features work from 20 artists placed at 12 sites in the city for the next nine weeks.

menendez took on a wealthy donor's dime. two pilots testified they flew menendez on private planes, paid for by the donor, a florida eye doctor. prosecutors say the flights were part of a pattern of bribery. menendez denies the allegations. he says that the dpigifts were between friends and the trial continues monday. if senator menendez is forced to resign, new jersey voters are saying they don't want governor chris christie to take his place. that's according to a new quinnipiac university poll. it finds only 3% of voters are okay with christie taking that position. an arrest warrant says a maryland man accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend sent texts to her sister, pretending to be the girlfriend after she was reported missing. the warrants say the texts claim tyler teszier was not the father of 31-year-old laura wallins' unborn child. teszier is now charged with first-degree murder in connection with wallins' death. officers found her body yesterday buried in a shallow
grave. the teacher's family reported her missing september 5th. switching gears now. villanova university showed off its newest treat today to help celebrate campus safety day. the mobile treat unit -- i wish this was on campus when i was there as a student -- is the newest by the public safety department. officials say the rehabbed ice cream truck will be used to help school officers engage with villanova students, faculty, and staff. as a teacher, now i've got to keep an eye out for that one, for sure. and the philadelphia fire department has bragging rights over the police department tonight. the department was presented a $10,000 check for winning this year's battle of the badges. the departments go head to head, seeing who can lose the most weight on the weight watchers system. overall, the fire department is now leading with 16 wins against the police department's 15 wins. 16-15. a tight race there. >> very much so. all right, turning to our first alert weather now, rough waves at the jersey shore. a live look at cape may.
hurricane jose churning in the ocean, creating a rip current danger at the shore. be careful. >> got to be mindful of that. let's talk to first alert meteorologist tammie souza. we're going to be dealing with a lot of rain, tammie. >> we'll deal with that rain on again, off again through saturday. it's not going to be a lot all day long, but it is going to be pockets of rain. and we just talked about the rip current risk. this is going to be with us through next week. it's moderate to high rip current risk for the delaware beaches and the new jersey beaches, because of those huge swells that are being created by what is now tropical storm jose, expected to re-strengthen. so let's go to check the temperature at avalon. you can see pretty much a vacant beach and the waves are fairly small right now, but that tropical storm is going to start taking a turn and come up the east coast and it's really going to push a lot of water in our direction, churning up these waves. 78 right now in avalon. the winds out of the south and southwest to 10 miles per hour. let's go to philadelphia, 81, and the winds are out of the southwest at 13 miles an hour. so we're about average today. actually, a little above average, temperature wise.
we have a few spotty showers around the area. we have had a few of them in philadelphia and often delaware and chester county. you can see now that they're just starting to dissipate. so that will be the story, i think, for this evening. but you can see on the wide picture, we really have the rotation of what is left of irma. this is just widely disorganized and scattered and it's going to be a couple of days before this all makes its way through our area. let's go hour by hour for you, set up what's going to happen. we're going to be looking at temperatures drop down overnight, generally into the 70s and 60s. the winds are going to turn off the land. we're going to see some spotty showers tomorrow, especially in the afternoon and evening, if you're going to be going to that u-mass/temple game, bring the rain slicker, just in case. fold it up, take it with you. saturday, some spotty showers out there as well and maybe into sunday morning. tropical headlines, jose expected to restrengthen. it will be a hurricane again by the weekend. it has a track that could be parallel to the east coast, so we need to watch this thing. looked like it wasn't going to
happen, now we'll have to keep an eye on it. next week, next tuesday, that's when we'll have to keep the closest aon what's going on wit jose. the track brings it up very close to the east coast. 70-mile-per-hour winds. but the cone is now encroaching on parts of southern delaware and the jersey shore. so we'll talk more about this and have your ten-day on 10 coming up in just a few minutes. the eagles undefeated after their week one win. >> there's one play the fans can't stop talking about. what wide receiver nelson agular said to carson wentz after this touchdown. we can watch it over and over. you might think, though, what he said was an insult. until you hear his explanation about it. a nun with a chainsaw is captivating the internet. up next, she tells us her motivation for this unique way to help hurricane victims.

god's will, though. >> there was a need and i tried to do what was there and by the gift -- by god's grace, i had the tool to do it, i had the chainsaw, and i was able to help out. that's all i wanted to do. >> tremendous. sister margaret ann says helping other people is what makes this nation strong. putting on the finishing touches. tonight, the divine marein hotel hosts a sneak peek of its renovation.
