fox 25's blair miller went straight to the agency's ceo for some answers. >> today at central loss americas we found volunteers in action. the agency is a nonprofit, helping the community in a variety of ways. today, it is stocking food pantry. but, here in this audit obtained by fox 25 investigates, state officials lay out accusations of how this agency is spending its money. half of sentro's money comes from state and according to the state auditor's office, sen trump must reimburse the state for $57,000 that the agency spent on expenses not allow and not related to sentro's social service program activities. >> this audit also says the money paid for a list of things including two trips to puerto rico, golf outings,ly conservator for a staff party, gift cards, with no documentation to show who got them, even a baby shower gift for a staff employee.
6:46 am
offices no one would speak on camera but on the phone, centrum's ceo, juan gomez told me every expense justified. the trip to puerto rico is a way to research ways to earn revenue and bring the money back to worcester. >> we are very committed to making sure that we are good stewards of the resources that are given to us. and so, we dot every i. and cross every t. >> but what about public money? staff party. why not just pay for that out of your own pocket? >> you know, that's a fair question. that's a fair question. >> i'm blair miller, fox 25 news. >> gomez also told blair miller the audit was flawed in that they provided documentation to auditors showing every expense is justified and he plans to submit it again hoping sen trump won't have to pay back the $57,000.

>> a brockton girl is giving what k to the hospital that is helping her overcome her illness. leah was born with a rairp disease called pee yore rowbin descroam, it can cause facial abnormalities. she has been receiving treatment at the floating hospital for children, leah and her mom say they feel like the hospital treated them so well they wanted to make sure other kids have the same experience. >> i decided to throw a party and the gifts we receive we will donate them to the hospital. >> the amount of the mostly books and toys for the other patients. >> now your local forecast from meteorologist shiri spear and the fox 25 storm tracker weather team. >> let's talk rain, because i feel like all the summer i have just been talking drought. so far this month, we have had about a third of an an inch in boston, 1 1/2" short by what we should have in september, but we are still 10" short of rainfall for the year. so we need the rain. we have a little rain today. 69 degrees your temperature in
6:48 am
breeze at 13 miles per hour. wind is something you will notice today. we can tap into gusts 20-25 miles per hour, but the fact of the winds are coming out of the from the southwest is ushering in some warmer, stickier conditions. so, at 8 a.m., 71 degrees, would not be surprised if we have a couple sprinkles or showers in and around the boston area, 10 a.m., 74. notice we have a lot of clouds in the forecast today. and we have highs in the lower 80s there. there could wedge in there a couple of showers, but a lot of your day is going to involve dry weather. here is the batch tracking right now, moving across central massachusetts and southern new hampshire. on track to approach boston around 7:36 this morning. quincy, at 7:56, even a little bit earlier in framingham at about 7:10. we will watch those here through the morning hours. i think after that, we probably dry out for a good chunk of that, say, lunchtime and afternoon, before we get some more waves of wet weather. you can see it's just kind of messy and sloppy as we look off to the north and west. it's definitely going to be warm
6:49 am
even going to cross until tomorrow. up ahead of it we stay unsettled. so at 8:30 this morning, futurecast under doing the showers, there will be patchy rain in the area, but by lunchtime, and 1 p.m., notice futurecast again painting a mostly dry picture. you know why i paused it at 1:00, right? the pats game out there. we have the slight risk for a shower, most of the game should just run muggy, perhaps a little breezy and mostly cloudy, but because we could see a passing shower, just want you to be aware of that by 4 p.m. you can see a couple re popping up near worcester and lowell. but they won't necessarily be planted there. i think a good rule of thumb is probably north and west of boston here in the afternoon or evening but by 8 p.m. this little shower could end up closer to boston, which means it could also interfere with the sox game we have this evening versus the yankees. by midnight tonight, you can see showers really starting to increase and then overnight we start tapping into the pockets of heavy rain in particular for the morning commute tomorrow. which is not looking very good. here at 7 a.m., have the
6:50 am
massachusetts but it slowly moves its way eastward and by lunchtime, those downpours easily from providence to boston here and we will still see some heavy rain tomorrow afternoon, over southeastern massachusetts and a couple lingering showers off to the northwest. basically an all-day chance of rain for your monday, the heaviest stuff is just going to be in place during the morning hours. so, rainfall totals even though it's hard to assign these numbers to any specific town or city, because we could see bursts of heavy rain even over the cape. rain totals range from half inch of all is said and done late on monday. high temperatures today, upper 70s and lower 80s. tonight is mild, muggy and yes stormy at times. lows that will be close to 70 degrees and from there we only have about a 5 degrees warmup in store for your day on monday, just because it's rainy and stormy and thunder and lightning and stronger gust, all things we have to monitor closely here for your monday. humidity and clouds, slowly clear the area on tuesday.
6:51 am

7:16 am
20-25 miles per hour this afternoon. that will be some noticeable wind. and by the time this is over, by the end of monday or even possibly early tuesday because this is a slow-moving system, anywhere from 1-1.5" of rain, so tropical depression julia is basically waiving off the coast of north carolina and south carolina, no impact to the local forecast, but some of the tropical moisture attached to that is the flow that goes right into new england and kind of drives the down pores or the potential downpours from today into tomorrow. i'm seeing most of the heavy rain for your monday, but there you have it. i told you there is a little rain out there even right now, lawrence, fitchburg, worcester, portsmouth new hampshire, all with showers of above, let's take a look at fitchburg, 70 degrees and you can see the rain reports coming in right now. this is probably going to last until at least 9:00 and let's

7:18 am
southern new hampshire, i hear it will be more widespread than that and continue at times heavy straight through at least the early afternoon. here you can see that we have downpours potentially not just over providence, rhode island, but they could very easily be closer to boston. we will have to watch out for some damaging wind gusts for them as well. i think heavy rain is going to be the main concern. by tomorrow afternoon, we have some focus of the heavy rain by at least the evening commute turning to southeastern massachusetts, but there are still a couple strag a mucky setup for the next two days in particular here for the day tomorrow. so this afternoon, i have got high temperatures in the upper 70s, lower 80s, about 83 norwood, 82 boston, 81 in lawrence and upper 70s for the cape and the islands, you are probably the brightest and dryest today. low temperatures tonight are going to be in the upper 60s and we have that developing rain and then tomorrow because it's so cloudy and so rainy, we will not have the opportunity to room what up a whole lot. i'm still going to give us some

it will donate them to the hospital. >> the amount of the donations has not been added up yet but it mostly amounted to books and toys for the other patients. >> now your local forecast from meteorologist shiri spear and the fox 25 storm tracker weather team. >> and finally get to tack about some rain instead of just the drought, because we have been talking about how dry it's been this month alone 1 1/2" short, the typical rainfall we should have at this point in september and for the year nearly 10" short of the normal rainfall. quite yet. but, we have got these 15 miles per hour winds coming up from the southwest, so carrying a lot of warmth but also a lot of humidity, a lot of moisture and that will help fuel incoming showers. 69 degrees is the temperature in boston right now under mostly cloudy skies. we will see hon and off clouds here. really close out weighing to a large extent the shine we see but there is a risk for either patchy sprinkles this morning or a popup shower or thunderstorm this afternoon. so, don't think it will be completely dry here, but we will
7:48 am
a.m., 11 a.m., 76 degrees, lower 80s for the afternoon, and about 79 degrees again by 5:00 this afternoon. so, it's interesting we have showers on radar right now, but they are basically hitting 495 and drying up and really struggling to get much measure fer east than that. boston could end up with a quick sprinkle here, passing through this morning, but i don't think that you are going to see that steady lighter rain that some of your neighbors off to the north and west are this morning, including central massachusetts and merrimac valley and southern new hampshire, but warm humid hair is really between today and tomorrow. so, just to time it utfor you here, 9 a.m., most of the light and patchy rain, southern new hampshire and merrimac valley, and central mass, i don't want the rule out a lonely shower, making it through boston, by early this afternoon, i'm pausing things at 1 p.m. because we have the pass at gillette. i have mostly cloudy and mostly dry conditions there. i have to tell you that there is a slight risk for shower. i'm thinking it is probably just going to be mostly cloudy, mostly dry, really muggy, and
7:49 am
showers and thunderstorms popping up here during the afternoon and that is something to watch and something that soabl is watching radar for straight through the evening hours (^) and of course at 8:00 we have the sox playing and we have to watch out for storms. most of the heavy stuff is going to move in after midnight tonight. this is going to be an issue for the morning commute tomorrow, so this is 7 a.m.. straight through lunchtime and the early afternoon. this is brand new updates to futurecast, even if you have been with me this morning, since 6 a.m., this is the information and look at that swath of heavy rain coming through at noon. this would, if it comes through in this form, in a line like this, i would expect that we have some strong winds attached to it, not just the downpours. and some thunder and lightning as well. so things will get messy here for the day today, during the evening commute, most of the rain is going to be focused over southeastern massachusetts but off to the north and west there could still be a strag her of a shower out there. and then the improvements will finally arrive as we push into the tuesday forecast.
7:50 am
rain, and because of those drought conditions, i mean, we need what we can get. we have got highs today up 70s and lower 80s with about 82 in boston, 86 in worcester, upper 70s for the cape and lower 80s for southern new hampshire. tonight we dip in the upper 60s and for the day tomorrow, let's talk low and mid 70, not a huge warmup because we have a lot of clouds and showers and thunderstorms that we are watching and that will cap your warmup. so, 83 on tuesday, with gradual clearing, wednesday sunshine 77 degrees. and a mix of sun and scattered clouds and eventually friday increasing clouds, leads to the slight risk for some saturday morning rain. back to you. >> all right. developing this morning, one person is dead after a diving accident in nahant, the conditions on the water that may have left two divers stranded with a dwindling air supply, plus, patriots kick off their home opener against their division rivals.

8:04 am
now, whether it's domestic or international, islamic inspired, we don't know the meaning behind it but placing a device, an explosive device in a city and having it explode is terrorism by its very nature. so, it's terrorism. what the motivation is, will come out in the investigation. what they are doing now is looking over the video, they are also analyzing the forensics of the bomb that didn't explode. the bomb that did. and seeing if they can identify any parts inside the, number, latent prints,. >> dan:, any time of evidence they can possibly get that will lead them to the identification of the person responsible for this. or persons. you outlined the next steps but personally for you, you were here in the boston marathon bombings and saw the process, what went through your mind when you heard about the explosions in new york city and also the findings of the second device, what went through your mind personally? >> my team is in west virginia

talked about handling a large scale terrorism attack and the leaders with that. my thoughts and prayers are with new york. we lived through the nightmare and unfortunately in new york, it has been hit. they have to be on high alert. we did. we saw other events after the initial attack. we found the individuals and went on the hunt for them. you know, it's time for everyone to step up, stay together, do something, say something, and if in new york, if you have got video, photographs, send it to nypd. let them investigate it and see if they can't find those responsible. but my art is with them. i was watching it live on t.v. with the west virginia police chiefs and we were praying for them and hoping for a quick end to this. >> yes, dan, i think all of those -- the good news is most of the minor injuries sound minor, i think one person is in serious condition this evening mo. but i wanted to ask you about the evidence because i know one of the devices did not go off so
8:06 am
but, when the devices do go off, they create devastation and destruction, it makes it harder to collect evidence i would imagine. >> it does. but, you would be amazed at the talent of the post explosives experts that can come in, we were able to reconstruct the bomb from boston and identity the components and trace it back to the very stores they were bought from. so, they are able, even though the bomb is in millions of pieces, our technicians and law enforcement are literally able to put the pieces together a i gain and find a serial n is connected to the remote control device or the initiating device, whatever it is, and that will be a clue that will help get the individuals responsible for this, to be able to find them with significant work. >> all right. thank you, dan. that was dan lynnski, former superintendent in chief with the boston police department, managing director of k. roll and you heard him talking aabout the investigation going forward and after the marathon bombings here, we sort of saw the end result of that when it went to trial. all the puzzle pieces coming together. that is the process they will be undertaking in new

carolina and south carolina, meandering over the next couple days but i don't have a direct impact on you forecasting, the moisture that is linked to yule ka could end up moving into new england here and that's just going to help feed those downpours for the day tomorrow. this is all just light rain but you can see in lawrence at 69 degrees, we do have some showers to out there now, the southwest wind at 10 miles per hour just bringing all that moisture into play. and the chance for rain is going to continue this morning so there you can see at noon we do have the risk for a shower or thunderstorm we get into the 80s this afternoon and most of the showers just running, mostly cloudy, humid, and cry. so there is the ongoing threat. slight threat this afternoon, but the threat is there for a shower. so at 10:00 this morning, most of the showers north and west of boston, we are going to have to keep a close eye on the city itself for a passing shower. this morning and through about noon. afternoon comes along and you
8:18 am
and maybe breaks in the clouds. but, some of those breaks in the clouds could actually help fuel popup thunderstorms, so soab is here for the afternoon and evening hours and will closely monitor doppler radar for any of those because they can contain some very localized heavy rain. at 9 p.m., again i think popups, the type of situation that we are looking at. but overnight tonight, the steadier, heavier rain moves in and what a mess we are looking at for the morning commute tomorrow. this is 5 a.m. tomorrow, we have already got pockets of heavy rain, it's anywhere, so we have got the ongoing chance for showers straight through, not just noontime but into the afternoon. basically an all day threat for heavy rain and if we get it coming through in a band like this at noontime tomorrow, then we are also going to have the watch out for damaging gusts. by monday evening, there will be some slight improvements as in heavy stuff off shore. there is still rain out there to get you home from work especially over southeastern massachusetts, but we do have garage wall improvements, so the front is really slow to finally
8:19 am
remember slow, too, it will take getting into tuesday to pick up the clouds as well. mostly cloudy today, about 83 in norwood, 82 lawrence, 76 in worcester, 80 manchester, new hampshire, 81 in ipswich and 78 in hyannis. tonight we will have lows close to 70 degrees with very high humidity and the risk for a couple of evening showers, but more showers for later into the overnight we go because of course you know tomorrow is going to bring us rain at times heavy, because of the clouds and the showers, it's also going to 70s. so we have only got about a 5 degrees, maybe 7 degrees warmup in your forecast for your monday. it's going to feature high humidity, showers, until then oohing hours, tuesday dries out, 83, sun is back on wednesday at 82 and the first day of fall is thursday, with a high of 77 degrees. back to you guys. >> a local nonprofit accused of miss using public money. coming up, the ceo's justification for spending tens of thousands on trips,ly core,

8:48 am
dry conditions, but there will always be that chance of something popping up. you can feel how muggy it is, that is what is going to drive the showers. lower 80s coming your way in boston, look at the showers to the north and west of the city right now, this is where most of them will stay and eventually you will find they stayed away -- fade away around noontime. this is reported at light rain north of worcester and manchester new hampshire as well. we have some wet spots this morning. this is not our cold front. our cold front is still west. this is the leading edge of some really humid air and that humid air is staying put today and into the day tomorrow. and in my opinion, futurecast kind of underdoing the rain threat early on this morning, but think most of it takes a pass and gillette is looking mostly dry that, is the key. remember i said there is the sliengt risk for shower, most of what i see for both pats and red sox fans is mostly cloudy and
8:49 am
a couple of spot storms beginning to pop up. although the coverage is going to be really limited with these, there is the potential of a downpour, some locally heavy rain with any of these storms that pop up, soabl is watching rarity for you this evening and at 8 p.m. is when the sox will take the field, as you can see there are a couple nearby storms that will be worth watching. the main heavy rain though is going to push in after midnight tonight, and into the morning commute tomorrow. i mean, this is going to be monday morning, there is going to be some pockets of heavy rain here, it gets more intense as the morning goes on. lunchtime, a lot of those storms end up peaking as we get a band of storms like that, we are not just talking init tension rain but the potential for some strong gusty winds attached to some storms as well. i have no doubt with the very high dew points and the high humid there would be some thunder and lightning along with that as well. we have all got to be cautious, i think morning and middle of the the day,
8:50 am
ease up for the evening commute, we still have got rain on radar. in particular, southeastern massachusetts. the wet spot for the monday evening commute, but when all is said and done, between today and tomorrow, rainfall totals anywhere from 0.5 to-1.5" of rain. i was tweaking this a moment before i hopped on air and the trend is good. you can see that is heavy rain, but that's the kind of rain that we really need. it's mott going to undo the drought, or even will prevent it from getting worse with this week's update. so, this afternoon, i have got highs in the upper 70s, the lower 780s, we have the slight risk of shower popping up but most of your afternoon is simply muggy and mostly cloudy and a little built breezy. overnight tonight, we have got lows in the 60s. it's going to be warm but it will be sticky out there and the showers are going to be spreading and tomorrow is basically a washout. temperatures, because of the rain and the cloud cover, won't have the opportunity to warm up too much. so, i think that we probably
8:51 am
warmup from the morning into the afternoon tomorrow. high of a 76 on monday, 83 on tuesday as we slowly see the clouds clear out, first day of fall thursday in the upper 70s and we will find the next chance for showers early saturday morning. >> back to you. >> developing this morning, one person is dead after a diving accident in nahant. the conditions on the water that may have left two divers stranded with a dwindling air supply. >> plus, later the day, the pay patriots kick off the home opener against the do
