and some officials say the federal response has been too slow. >> we're going to make sure we fund our health departments. we're going to make sure we fund our mosquito boards. we're going to make sure we have all the resources we need. >> reporter: federal officials concede the response has been slow. that's because pesticides have not been as effective as expected. david, it is possible that the mosquitos are developing some sort of resistance. live at laguardia airport tonight, gus rosendale. new at 11:00, take a look at this clear surveile the man you're looking at, they say, is the suspect in a violent subway crime in harlem. tonight he is still on the streets. news 4's ida siegel reports on the frightening encounter. >> reporter: it's disturbing enough to hear someone was robbed at knife point in the subway. but when we told riders in harlem tonight that this was the knife-wielding thief police were looking for, a man wearing an mta uniform shirt? they were that much more
like i said. >> reporter: police say it's unclear whether this man standing near the metro card machine at the 125th street stop for the acbd lines is actually an mta employee or someone just wearing the shirt. but they say he walked up behind a 55-year-old passenger just before 4:00 in the morning last tuesday, held a knife to the man's neck, and stole his backpack. >> there's not a lot of cops there, and it's kind of an just not thinking about anything elsement you're focused on getting to where you're going. so now to have to think about, you know, being safe there as well is just another added thing. >> reporter: though the attack happened in the early morning hours, folks here say it's evidence that you have to always keep your eyes open and never assume someone is harmless just because they're wearing what appears to be a uniform. >> you know, you're in the subway and you're used to sometimes random craziness, but
would be safe, it's disconcerting to say the least. >> reporter: police still haven't figured out who the man in that video is. if he looks familiar to you, you should call their crime stoppers tip line. the number 1-800-577-tips. reporting from harlem, ida siegel, news 4, new york. the nypd is trying to find a hit-and-run driver behind a horrific incident caught on tape in brooklyn. surveillance video captured the moment of impact on fulton street in cypress the driver struck and killed two men and also hit two parked cars. he then fled the scene own foot. del mer maldonado died aed the scene and israel terse yoes died at the hospital. turning to decision 2016, donald trump finding himself in the middle of a growing controversy. parents of u.s. soldiers killed in action are demanding an apology from the republican nominee for his feud with the mother and father of a decorated

competitions. olympic officials there in rio, though, continue to insist rio's waterways will be safe. our own bruce beck has arrived in rio. he's going to have live reports beginning this wednesday. the opening ceremony will air friday night right here on news 4. washed away. the devastation in el i cot city, maryland, is still difficult to grasp just days after cars and homes were swept off by walls of water, many are still taking stock of the damage. the storm of rain in just a matter of hours. the cost to rebuild estimated to be in the millions and could take months. two people were killed in the saturday night storm. we see the images, janice. still difficult to grasp. >> it sure is. incredible video there from those storms. we have some video from some storms tonight. these were offshore near virginia beach, virginia. in the distance out over the aegs, lightning bolts striking into the water. thank goodness a beautiful picture when you're far, far
but just remember how dangerous lightning is. it heats up the air at 50,000 degrees fahrenheit in less than a second. i don't want to be close by. these storms of course remain offshore near virginia, so they're pretty far from virginia beach. around here, we're seeing some downpours in the area right now. just some isolated ones but a few more may pop up as we go through the rest of this evening. there's the empire state building, and yankee fans know why it's in that color, right? congrats to the yankees tonight. game one of the subway series. sports. mets fans not so happy. let's look at the flash flood watch in effect for the area overnight. that's mainly north and west of the city where we've got that in effect, where we'll see some of those downpours starting to develop. just a few isolated ones. it won't happen everywhere, mainly in those locations north and west. conditions do improve tomorrow. we'll have a bit more sun, a lot less rain. there's still a chance here and there in the afternoon, but it's definitely better by the middle of the week. with temperatures in the 80s and
starting on wednesday, even into thursday. by the time we get to friday, though, it starts to heat up again. here come the upper 80s to near 90 with high humidity going into the weekend. and a few thunderstorms too. probably on saturday more so than sunday. right now we're watching the strongest storms over southeastern pennsylvania, but we're seeing those isolated downpours in a couple of spots here. this doesn't look like much, this shower that's just west of fee pack gladstone, but it develop a little more as we go through the evening. rainfall totals there, maybe about a quarter of an inch -- three quarters of an inch per hour. to the north of the city near thompson and forestberg and bethel is where we're seeing bigger downpours now. the rain falling at the rate of 1 1/2 inches per hour. these are some of the areas that could see some isolated flooding overnight. in the meantime, it's 70 degrees in kingston. 71 in bails gate. watch out across much of the hudson valley, the catskills and
as bridge water. temperatures pretty much the same everywhere. the humidity is really high in most spots. very muggy out there tonight. the atmosphere still packed with moisture, especially north and west where you may see those isolated downpours. so there's a chance through the overnight period till about 4:00 in the morning, and then things start to calm down. we still have, though, that flash flood watch in effect until 6:00 a.m. for these counties north and west of new york city. rainfall totals could add up to more than an inch later on tonight. and tomorrow we do get some more sun. there could be a storm or two in the afternoon around 2:00 or 3:00, but overall most of the rain will occur in the morning before 6:00 a.m. you might see some scattered lighter showers to the east of the city after that. but as we check out and go ahead into wednesday, we're up to 82 with sunshine. beautiful day. same on thursday. then the heat comes back for a few days coming to the weekend. saturday looks rather stormy,
so noted. thank you, janice. john chandler here. what's coming up? >> the yankees are rebuilding. that is official now. they may have won the deadline today. they are off to a wrong start in the rebuilding mode. the mets are desperate for power in their lineup. they had a guy who's driven in more runs than anyone in the national league. question is, is that enough? we'll have reaction to a day of deals. game one in the subway series needed extra innings tonight. sports is just ahead. here's what jimmy fallon has coming up tonight. for pop quiz. music from bishop rigs.

last year the mets pulled off a season altering train for yoenis cespedes minutes before the trade deadline. did they do the same this year? the mets acquiring outfielder jay bruce from the reds, and they paid a price. highly touted infield prospect dillson herrera as well as lefty pitcher max woe tell. bruce beeves up the middle of the lineup. 25 homers, a national league sandy alderson going for it once again. >> look, it was an extraordinary turnaround last year, and, you know, all we can do is acquire as many good players as we can to put ourselves in a position to maybe have that magic again. but i certainly think he can have an impact for us. >> following the same formula as last year, mets also reacquire pitcher jonathan niece from pittsburgh for disappointing reliever antonio bass tar doe. niece will head to the bull pen
