5:00 pm
now wmur news 9 at 5:00. josh: a flood warning is still in effect for some parts of new hampshire even though the heaviest rain has moved on. good evening, thank you for joining us. i'm josh mcelveen. jennifer: and i'm jennifer vaughn. today's rain caused a lot of headaches like this flooding in ossipee, slowing down drivers on route 16 tonight, and one deadly crash has been confirmed. but conditions are steadily getting better, so let's check in with chief meteorologist mike haddad for a closer look at that. mike: yes, and a lot of this rain initially very beneficial. we needed rain in a big way, and many communities picking up well over two, three, four inches. take a look at the total. sanbornton coming in at over seven inches of rain, that's a two-month average for parts of the lakes region all in a mere 24 hours. tilton just under six inches of rain, same story around laconia down to concord at 3.83 inches. well above the average monthly total we pick up in all of september.
5:01 pm
cleared the coast in the last couple hours, still lingering light rain in the north country. in terms of flood watches, all of those have been dropped. we do have a flood warning for the pemigewasset river. what about rain chances for the weekend, we'll take a look at this in a bit. jennifer: thank you. the heaviest rain arrived just as the morning commute got under way, causing several accidents, and at least one person died in a crash near exit 2 on interstate 89. there were several accidents in that area backing up traffic for quite a distance, and roads along the seacoast were also tricky today, especially when high tide arrived. wmur's jennifer crompton is live tonight from hampton with more on that. reporter: we are here at hampton beach where things are quiet now, but that wasn't the case a few hours ago where from
5:02 pm
concern was between 1:00 and 3:00 when the astronomical high tide hit. the combination of that and the strong winds created lots of splashover along the coastline, especially along route 1a. debris was visible in some spots. a dramatic scene, lots of people out to get a look at the turbulence, but no real problems associated with it, thankfully. streets were flooded in some places at high tide, but officials say this was not any worse than they usually see with that moon tide storm combo. even on the back side of the beach along the marsh where homes became virtual islands for a time. >> are you marooned right now? >> well, until the tide goes back out, yes. reporter: is that concerning to you? >> no, because i've been here for over 30 years and i'm used to it. it will go back out in an hour. reporter: again, officials say there weren't really any problems associated with this. but coming up at 6:00 we'll look
5:03 pm
at the advice they still have and what they are looking at through the evening. for now, jennifer crompton, wmur news 9. jennifer: thank you. widespread flooding also shut down streets in portland, maine. cars were stranded after driver as tempted to go through standing water. university of southern maine closed its portland, gorham and lewis on the auburn campuses because of flooding. the national weather service telling us that four inches of rain fell before 8:00 this morning. many people enjoying the effects of the rain, including the flume gorge in lincoln, great shot there. it's usually at a season low, but the rain has created some spectacular water falls. and we could see another big round of rain later on this weekend and this is all due to hurricane joaquin. however, the path for the storm is still very much up in the air, so let's go over to josh judge who is tracking for us.
5:04 pm
by day and sometimes several times a day, it's very difficult to predict. we're starting to have a little more confidence, let's take a look at where it is right now, a category one with top wind 85 miles per hour right now. here's one computer model and in computer model is the one that's pretty much the most accurate right now. most of the models agreeing with this. look at the turn it takes now and possible landfall somewhere around the carolinas up through washington d.c. or new jersey. over the second half of the weekend and early next week. it's been slowing down a little, and then it may turn over and come toward us, just remnants. but this computer model does something completely different and brings it completely out to sea by-passing land altogether, that solution fairly unlikely. when you take this hurricane and you put all the paths of the different computer models, you see a consensus, landfall somewhere around the carolinas, and then turning toward us. so because of that, here's the official track, from the national hurricane center.
5:05 pm
an abrupt turn around tomorrow, coming up the coast, landfall along there, and then perhaps late weekend or early next week coming up this way in the form of remnant. we'll be talking much more about this as well as have a look at the forecast, in a few minutes. josh: defense attorneys are asking a have to exclude certain evidence in the case of a nashua mother now charged with murdering her daughter. andy hershberger got a look at those documents and joins us live with details about the statements katlin marin made. reporter: the statements were later given conflicting information when the toddler was examined at the hospital. court documents filed by lawyers for kaitlin marin say that evidence gathered at the home where her 3-year-old daughter brielle game -- gage was found unresponsive should be thrown out because it was illegally obtained. she told police that her daughter was not feel well and when she tried to use the
5:06 pm
bathroom she appeared to have a seizure where she fell down the flight of stairs. the documents say marin splashed water on her face to revive the child, then put her to bed, checking on her several times that night. marin allegedly told authorities that the next day she was carrying the child downstairs when she lost her footing and they both fell. gage was unconscious and was taken to the southern new hampshire medical center where she was pronounced dead. court record say an examination of the child's body showed a variety of injuries to her face, head, back of her hands, chest, thigh, feet and legs, and that the assistant deputy medical examiner said brielle's injuries were not consistent with kaitlin's account of what occurred. but defense lawyers say police started collecting evidence before any specific medical finds were reached. the state is expected to file their response shortly. the trial in this case is scheduled to start in may of
5:07 pm
andy hershberger, wmur news 9. josh: looks like a government shutdown has been avert forward the time being. just minutes ago the house approved a measure to keep the government open. the senate already passed the temporary funding measure today. this runs through december 11 and gives lawmakers now 10 weeks to come up with a new budget deal. the issue of funding for planned parenthood obviously a major sticking point in this debate. and a temporary bill does maintain funding for planned parenthood. jennifer: russia has launched air strikes in syria, the kremlin saying it's targeting islamic militants. but that's not what the pentagon is saying. sally kidd is live in washington with the latest on this. reporter: that's right, jen, the obama administration says it appears russia is trying to prop up the assad regime, not take out isis. and the defense secretary says that's like pouring gasoline on a fire. moscow says air raid by russian
5:08 pm
military jets are targeting isis positions in central syria. but the pentagon says the attacks appear to be hitting opposition groups fighting the syrian government. >> it does appear that they were in areas where there probably were not isil forces. reporter: russia insists that's not the case. >> don't listen to pentagon about the russian strikes. reporter: secretary of state kerry says the u.s. would have grave concerns about any strikes against targets where isis is not operating. >> strikes of that kind would question russia's real intentions fighting isil or protecting the assad regime. reporter: analysts say president putin is trying to reassert russia's place on the world stage. >> he believes that this is going to help him domestically. i think that comes at some risk. yesterday there was a poll in russia that said 69% of the russian public opposed russian troops in syria.
5:09 pm
reporter: senate republicans say russia's involvement is the result of president obama's foreign policy failures. >> this is the inevitable consequence of hollow words, red lines crossed, tarnished moral influence, leading from behind. reporter: the white house says u.s. and russian military officials will meet later this week to discuss preventing conflicts between russian and coalition aircraft in the air space over syria. jennifer: sally, russia has been ramping up its presence in syria for weeks now, so did these air strikes come as a surprise to administration officials? reporter: well, secretary carter says russia has been broadcasting its intentions over the past couple of weeks to move in forces and begin conducting air strikes. but what took the administration by surprise was the fact that russia supposedly only gave one hour's notice before it began the air strikes.
5:10 pm
formal channels. jennifer: okay, thank you. also the u.s. has carried out more air strikes in afghanistan. this as an attempt to retake a key city from taliban fighters. right now one of the major centers of fighting is the airport, that's outside of kunduz. because of the situation in that city, some u.s. commanders are now suggesting that some american troops stay in afghanistan longer than the current deadline of 2016. it's been a rainy day out there, well, not my more apparently, doesn't seem to be affecting traffic. this is 293 north in manchester, from the elliott at rivers edge camera, at least it looks dry now. josh: so far. peggy james joins us with a look at the road home mid-week. >> yes, our mid-week ride is starting off pretty good. 93 northbound coming up from salem to manchester will take but 23 minutes to get into the queen city. no major delays or backups.
5:11 pm
293 is a good ride through south willow street, brown avenue and the mill yard exits, awe moving well. going north towards concord you see some slight delays around exit 11. further north you're starting to see some billion volume through the bow junction, 8 it and 93 in concord, but no major hangups at the time. the everett turnpike a bit slow northbound through the merrimack stretch. on 101 west your usual stop and go through bedford. 101 eastbound is moving right along, and 95 is looking good. from the wzid traffic network, i'm peggy james. jennifer: one of the outsiders shaking up the primary polls back in the granite state for a series of town halls, in fact a little while ago ben carson weighed in on the idea of changing the new hampshire primary. josh: the war on heroin has become a major issue in this
5:12 pm
with news 9 to explain what he'd like to see. mike: tomorrow certainly plenty of changes moving in. jennifer: ahead, a nashua woman who disappeared in the 80's has been identified as the murder victim in an arizona cold case. josh: and a few report on that crippling thanksgiving blizzard says we need better storm plans, at 6:00 the state's

5:14 pm
the kind of state where people can get up close and personal, and really have an opportunity to find out who the candidates are. jennifer: dr. carson finishes his seacoast campaign swing tonight with a medical community meet and greet in new castle. donald trump is also back in new hampshire, his town hall will start tonight at 6:00 and that's at keene high school. josh: like every candidate, jeb bush is asked often by the war on isis and global terror, but when it comes to new hampshire it often the war on heroin and opioid addiction getting their attention. today bush heard from those who think, her from those who are fighting this fight. for jeb bush, wednesday brought serious business. the subject, heroin, and the hampshire. >> i've been to the hospitals, i've had the wrist band on, i've been kicked out of the door two answer. >> but the talking has got to start.
5:15 pm
this is an epidemic. reporter: following a frank discussion that included the mayor of manchester, first responders, doctors, and even recoveringed adibbs, bush said heroin should be on the radar of every candidate. >> i don't follow the other campaigns that much, but you can't miss it here. reporter: during a one on one interview bush said the principal role of the federal government is to stop the flow of the drug. >> to eradicate supply, and to coordinate law enforcement activities at the local state and federal level. there's a real role to play and it's to fund treatment and to encourage communities from the bottom up to create a strategy and help on that strategy. reporter: bush also released plans regarding energy and the development infrastructure to deliver more of it to the northeast. >> so turn down the permitting process to expedite it, speed it up, so that this infrastructure made in america by american workers creating high wage jobs, happens at warp speed. reporter: just there's one
5:16 pm
during this campaign, and despite recent suggestions to the contrary he says that new hampshire is the perfect place for the race to start. >> get to understand the heart beat of each candidate, and the cumulative effect of campaigning here and listening and having town hall meetings and being engaged and being challenged, you can't replicate in florida. much as i love florida, you can't replicate it. josh: we also asked bush about his recent slide in the polls and his rivalry with donald trump. that can be found in our full interview with jeb bush, right now at mike: some beneficial rain fell in many parts of new hampshire and then some not so welcome late this morning and afternoon as we started to see some of those rivers and streams rising a little above flood stage. take a look at what's happening right now in plymouth, clouds beginning to break a little bit, but still mainly overcast. same story in dublin where clouds are trying to break. we've seen the partial sunshine scooting in through the
5:17 pm
merrimack valley. take a look at the doppler radar, estimated rainfall tallies. talked about some of the specific numbers earlier. clearly the jackpot out of this was lakes region, north and east, into the mount washington valley, all of these greens indicate rainfall rates of over three to three and a half inches. once you get into the areas of the lakes region, mount washington valley, six to as accumulate. and then the numbers taper off a little bit as you travel farther north and west into and through the great north woods. because of all the rain we did have a flood watch up for the entire state through morning, good news, that's been dropped. but we still have a flood warning in effect for some of the low lying areas, small streams and rivers in the mount washington valley, lakes region for about another hour until 6:15, also pemigewasset river around woodstock will likely rise above flood stage and remain there before it drops
5:18 pm
late tonight. a good part of southern natural has dried out. the winds are beginning to crank up as dryer air nose police from the north and northwest. we still have a concern along the coast, at the time of high tide. later tonight and again tomorrow afternoon, high astronomical tides, busy winds out of the north and northeast. and that's prompting some splashover concerns, beach erosion and maybe minor flooding a long the coast, again that's late tonight and near high tide early tomorrow afternoon. temperature wise, started off in the 70's in southern new hampshire, now cooling into the 60's, near 60 in the great north woods. but the dew points showing the whole story here, as it's really drying out big time, back in a good portion of the great lakes, southeastern portions of canada and that dryer air will nose on in, squashing any moisture to our south over the next few days. tonight seasonably chilly, 40's to around 50, a little bit of patchy fog may develop where the winds go light, but at times it will be breezy, and temperature wise no more 70's. we'll be in the 50's and lower
5:19 pm
60's tomorrow and even cooler by friday and into the weekend. so we dry out nicely for the next few days, we'll get a nice break until plate in the weekend or early next week at the earliest. that's when we may hear from the remnants of joaquin coming in here by sunday night or monday, but in the short term notice on few cast not much in the way of precipitation, the thickest cloud cover over the next few days clearly in southern new hampshire, with the most in the way of sunshine farther to the north. so any showers end, then clearing tonight, it will be breezy at times, quite chilly over the next few days, notice tomorrow and on friday the most cloud cover in southern parts of new hampshire, the most sun in the north country. there could be a shower saturday from concord south. same story on sunday, if we do hear from the remnants of joaquin still trying to track whether it hits the carolinas directly and comes up here as another batch of heavy rain, that would happen maybe sunday night or monday. jennifer: okay, thank you, mike. staying connected at sea is about to get easier. josh: we'll tell you which cruise line is expanding its

50% of adults age 20 to 35 do not have an account with snap chat. 41% don't use pinterest. and 39% say they're not on twitter or instagram. only 11% say they don't have a facebook page. but one fourth of millennials say they use facebook less than once a week. josh: if you're planning a cruise but don't want to give up your high speed internet, the world's largest cruise company has offered a solution. carnival cruises announced plans to expand its fast satellite based internet to 40% of its day. but internet speeds will be three times as fast as what's being offered now for five bucks. jennifer: a man from new zealand was fired because of a massive phone. he went on vacation in sleigh language afor srilanka and end up with a $23,000 bill. the worker filed a complaint,
