terror in manhattan. overnight developments after a man carried out a deadly attack in the name of isis. >> the suspect, uncovering his past through the united states and his run-ins with police in pennsylvania. protecting the public. philadelphia's heightened security following the terrorist attack. we're asking what solutions they have to keep our city from being a target. good morning, this is "nbc10 news today," i'm via sikahema. >> i'm tracy davidson. meteorologist steve sosna is looking at the chilly temperatures and has the most accurate neighborhood weather forecast. steve? >> good morning. notch temperatures in november here -- november temperatures in november as it is november 1. feeling the chill in suburban communities. 36 in pottstown. 35 in allentown. 32 in mt. pocono. into south jersey, temperatures around 40 degrees. the only mild spot now is rehoboth beach at 58 degrees.
don't have to worry about rainfall for most neighborhoods. the only place with a possible brief shower is the lehigh valley through the poconos through midday this afternoon. as we head through the bus stop weather, looking at temperatures this morning in the mid 30s. kids will need the hats, gloves, and gear this morning. a great deal of cloud cover across communities. a warmup is coming our way. find out when that takes place in a bit. watching 422 and cameras at trooper road. a delay eastbound, typical. that's traffic moving toward the schuylkill. a 12-minute trip from 29 to the schuylkill expressway. speeds are dropping and now into the 40s. we're watching the schuylkill expressway on the westbound side. a disabled vehicle just by cityline avenue. seeing a little bit of that increase in a delay.

for them. nbc10 with more on the overnight developments and how to protect the public from these attacks. >> we begin with dray clark live in manhattan. >> reporter: good morning. a somber day in new york city as people try and begin their new devil ray some sense of normal -- new day with some sense of normalcy after the latest attack. what happened described as graphic and sad, bodies lying on the streets. some people showing no signs of life. others screamed in pain and agony for help. take a look at the video that nbc10 was able to obtain. it shows students running scared from the borough of manhattan community college. moments after hearing gunshots and seeing bodies from the school windows. there are several schools in this area, a community college, high school, and businesses. the area was full of people when the terrorist attack happened at
around 3:00 yesterday. and certainly many people could not believe what they were seeing when the suspect began his killing spree. >> i saw a dude with two guns. the guy for some reason was running around. he was getting chased. all of a sudden, four shots windy off, and we -- went off, and we all started running. >> reporter: a member of the nypd was able to stop the suspect by shooting him in the stomach. he was rushed to bellevue hospital. he did undergo surgery and reportedly investigators did try and speak to the suspect. we're told he's refused to answer questions. i want to give you now a live sense of what's happening here behind me. you see members of the nypd. also a very large media scene. this is the tribecca
neighborhood, trendy and upscale. the massive crime scene stretches about a mile alone. and investigators are being very methodical. they want to make sure that nothing is overlooked in their investigation. >> you lived and worked there for years before coming to philadelphia. what's the mood, the state of mind of people getting up and starting their day there? >> reporter: i think people are somber, and they are sad. this is not the first time that new york ci new york city has been attacked. there's a strong sense of resiliency. i want to show a picture of the annual halloween parade in new york city. it brings out hundreds. thousands of people. that parade happening a short distance away from where the attack happened. the mayor marched in this parade along with governor cuomo. the message was you cannot break the will or spirit of the people of new york. they want people to carry on their sense of normalcy with
their lives. at the same time, they're telling people to be very aware of their surroundings. if they see something, they should say something immediately. live in lower manhattan, nbc10 news. >> a message we heard over and over yesterday. thanks. meanwhile, nbc10 has learned the suspect also has ties to pennsylvania and new jersey. we've learned saipov was charged with traffic-related offenses in the poconos in 2012. years later, the 29-year-old was arrested in central pennsylvania on similar charges. officials say he rented the pickup used in the attack from home depot in north jersey. we called the store in passaic county, but they chose not to comment. a friend tells nbc that saipov may have been married with kids. they described him as a "very happy guy who was no terrorist." we've seen more and more terrorists using trucks to carry out deadly attacks which poses a challenge to police. >> nbc10 spoke to security officials about what can be done
to protect the public. matt delucia is live with the safety solutions. tell us more. >> reporter: well, let's talk about that. stopping a car or truck is not an easy thing. a curb isn't going to do it. even metal fences like this one here will be tough to stop a car or truck that is moving. a lot of buildings and businesses and major landmarks have relied on things like these, like big, concrete planters, also these ballards that stick up out of the ground. the problem is that you won't find those everywhere. with truck attacks becoming more and more commonplace lately, it's another layer for law enforcement to keep in mind. a terrorism expert we spoke with last night says simply and sadly what happened in new york yesterday could easily happen here. because of that, we see amped up security at major events, even garbage trucks used to block roadways. it does bear noting from the philly police commissioner and even the former homeland security official, their reaction to attacks like the one
in new york is sobering. >> you can't put cement barriers up everywhere. you can't put blocking vehicles everywhere. certainly this is why we take measures at large-scale events like parades and demonstrations sometimes. whether it be streets or what have you. there's a reason we're out there. in terms of people's everyday living, it is not possible to safeguard people that way every day. >> there's not much that the law enforcement or intelligence community or citizens can do. i'm sad to say that. certainly we have to be vigilant, but we all can't walk around in fear. >> reporter: that's why both of them say keeping an eye on surroundings is critical. you know the line "see something, say something." these lines can do a good job at stopping a truck, but it only works if you're near one.
nbc10 news. >> thanks. there's much more ahead on the "today" show starting at 7:00 a.m. after "nbc10 news today." 6:38. 43 degrees. first in philadelphia, a police lieutenant says a recent hit and run is a horrifying incident. new surveillance video shows the moments someone ran over a victim twice with a minivan. we've blurred out the victim. you see the van run over him, then the driver backs up running over him again. that's when the suspect takes off from the scene. this happened tuesday at the corner of 56 street. the 25-year-old is a transgender man. police have not determined if it is an incident of a hate crime. closing arguments could begin today in the corruption trial of new jersey senator bob menendez. attorneys gathered yesterday to discuss what instructions the jury will hear before deliberating. the instructions will include specifics on what the jury should consider as bribery.
menendez is accused of taking gifts in exchange for his political influence. today open enrollment for insurance under obamacare begins. however, you have less time to apply or make changes this time around. the deadline that used to be in january moved up to december 15th. the federal government isn't providing as much help when it comes to getting people enrolled. city and state governments are trying to pick up the slack. we're on the road again, this time in gloucester county learning more about williamstown. >> and meteorologist bill henley joins us live from the wawa on black horse pike. are you pouring coffee or just drinking coffee? >> i'm drinking 90%. everybody else gets 10%. marie, did you stop by for coffee? >> i stopped by for coffee and to see everyone here. >> and take a picture, too? >> and take pictures. >> who's our photographer?
