7:02 am
>> everybody gets tired -- after a while, most folks get tired of it. looks like it's starting to wear thin -- >> i'm enjoying it. >> except for mr. happy. >> yeah, mr. personality, mr. happy, he's excited. >> i love it. >> seriously, though, we know how quick the season changes. >> i know. it is that time of year where the days are getting shorter, temps start coming down. every day that we've had so far in the month of september has been at 90 plus. oh, yeah, that's been two. anyhow, we're going to keep it that way for one more day, and then we'll start to see a backdown in temperatures. the other thing that goes along with these high temps and takes a hit. if you've got a problem like emphysema or asthma, these days can be difficult, and we have this air quality alert in effect for most of the tristate region starting at 11:00 this morning evening. you want to take it easy on a day like today.
7:03 am
make sure you take it easy, especially if you have one of those issues. look at that fog, it popped back up in islip, down to one-itth of a mile. elsewhere doesn't look so bad, monticello down to one and three-quarters of a mile. the temps are the same general range as yesterday, 60 in sussex, 66 in allentown and 61 in monticello with a mainly clear sky. if you don't have the fog, you've got plenty of sun coming at you here today, and that's what we're going to keep for a while. back door cold front will change things up later on, but that means a better chance of showers trying to pop through here, but not until late tonight, and i think most of us have to get away without having to deal with rainfall. after the patchy morning fog we do have especially in the long island area, we'll head up to 86 by lunchtime and a high temp of 92 later on, back to 89 for the ride home. shower chances not really a
7:04 am
problem during the day. but late tonight into tomorrow morning, that's when you could see a few showers. again, i don't think there's going to be a lot of it. down. high of 82 tomorrow, same thing on saturday. all right. now there's get you over to ines quieter side. >> right now we do have an incident on the bqe approaching the lie, that eastbound. there's a stall blocking a lane. if you're taking the long island expresswayway, normal drays towards queens -- delays towards queens boulevard. no problems on the parkway or the turnpike. let's go to our cameras, the staten island expressway, we have problems here. the construction has been such an an issue the last couple of weeks. doing fine on the eastbound side, but westbound traffic moving slow because of road work, so off the verrazano bridge expect delays. as for the trains, doing great
7:05 am
this morning. no problems with metro north, long island railroad, new jersey transit or the path trains. >> thank you, ines. there's a new case of legionnaires' disease in the south bronx. >> health officials say the melrose houses tested positive for legionella bacteria. fox 5's robert moses has the details, he is in the bronx with the story. good morning. >> good morning to you. residents tell me the hot water remains off this morning, so a whole lot of people are taking cold showers. and that is because the hot water distribution system here in this building tested positive for the legionella bacteria. once again anxieties are running high in the south bronx. beginning today the new york city housing authority is expected to install water filters that eliminate the legionella bacteria in every apartment at 681 cortland avenue in the melrose houses. the hot water distribution system in that building tested positive for the bacteria.
7:06 am
the health d. says the hot water will be turned back on once the filters are installed. two other buildings tested negative. results at five other buildings in the complex are pending. according to the city's health commissioner, there has been four cases of legionnaires' disease in the melrose houses this the last since months. only one person is still hospitalized. those who live in the building that tested positive wonder why are they just finding out about these cases now? >> they already had an inkling something was going on. why didn't they let us know? why wait til the last minute to tell us that it's here? so everybody's panicking. >> we just find out today, and it's a shame. got me scared, because i'm up in age. i'm 77 years old. >> not long ago the city delareed the legionnaires' outbreak vanquished, but then came this news in the melrose houses and word that an all
7:07 am
girls' school on the upper east side tested positive for the legionella bacteria a, and once again the city is up easy. more than 120 people got sick in this summer's outbreak, 12 people died. and it does not appear that the small cluster of cases here in the melrose houses is at all related to that earlier outbreak that swept across the city this summer. the health department says that the cold water many this building is safe, and those i've spoken to this morning tell me those filters will begin to be installed today and, hopefully, once that happens the hot water comes back. that is the latest live from the melrose section of the bronx this morning, ben and teresa, back to you. >> let's hope. robert moses, thank you very much. 7:07, firefighters are are battling a blaze that has spread to several homes in the kensington section of brooklyn. >> mike weinstein, what's going on? >> this is 1312 glenwood road. it was a fire that started in
7:08 am
this house on the left, and it spread to this house on the right. both houses sustaining some damage, at least five injuries although we are not sure the extent of those injuries. it did go to a fourth alarm, so still a very large fire department presence on is scene. ed around 4:45, new york's bravest now saying this fire is under control. >> thank you very much. police are searching for a man they say raped a 19-year-old woman on sunday. >> take a good look at this surveillance video. the man walking with his shirt partially off, the sketch shows the shirt around his face, is the man they want to question. they say the woman was approached by a guy who said he had a gun. he pulled her into the back of a building and raped her. the suspect is described as wearing blue and white hawaiian shorts and that white tank top which was covering his face as well as a t-shirt. if you have information, call crimestoppers, 1-800-577-tips. football games and practices
7:09 am
suspended at susan wagner high school on staten staten island. >> at least one parent says upper classmen targeted freshmen by shooting them with bb or air pellet guns, hitting them with broom sticks, drawing lewd pictures on them with magic marker and remembering their rear ends, rather, in the faces of the players while they were sleeping. however, many players and parents say they're being unfairly targeted. >> it's really disheartening in a way because of all the work we've put in. >> i just don't think a whole team should be punished for something that these few individuals did do. >> a special investor is now investigating. the nypd is claiming this has been the city's safest summer in decades. >> from june through august the number of murders and shootings were at the lowest level since the early '90s.
7:10 am
shootings are down nearly 1.5% through the first eight months of the year compared to last year, assaults and burglaries also down. while the summer was safer overall for the year, murders are up 6%, and sexual assaults have jumped more than 5%. all right. did you hear? the pope is coming to town. >> it's a busy time for the pope's visit later this month. the top priorly, deeping the pope -- priority, keeping the pope protected. a new poll shows the americans really do like pope francis. >> liz dahlem joins us from midtown, and she she has more on this. good morning. >> good morning, ben and teresa. thousands and thousands of new yorkers are going to come face to face with pope francis as he makes his way through this historic procession through central park, you're doing to need a ticket to get there, and those tickets are going through this lottery process which is going to start today. here's some stuff you need to know if you're looking to get
7:11 am
that special ticket to see the pope. you have to be a new york state resident and apply online, and you could receive two free tickets through this giveaway contest. we have got the link on forbes -- fox you can apply now until september 7th, and the winners will be announced on september 10th. we all know protecting pope francis is going to be a huge undertaking. the nypd is going to have a massive security plan in place from officers on the ground to the secret service who will be in charge. a former secret service agent who was assigned to president obama's protection detail says the pope will get the same take a listen. >> there's simply no way to secure someone with the threat footprint the pope carries with him with a discreet profile that he likes to carry around. >> after central park pope francis will celebrate mass at madison square garden, and this is the chair his holiness will sit in.
7:12 am
cardinal dolan unveiling it yesterday. it's very simple, and am immigrant worker actually built it. the pontiff wanted it that way. he wanted to keep it very simple, simplicity and humility philosophy for the time that he has been in this role, and it seems to be working. americans actually saying they love the direction the church is going in. 18% of those questioned, a recent quinnipiac poll, said they are very favorable to the pope and 48% saying they are favorable as well. so it seems he's getting very good reviews ahead of his historic view to new york city. we're live in front of st. patrick's cathedral this morning. >> when you talk to people, especially young catholics, they are very encouraged by pope france sis. >> very dynamic individual. liz dahlem in midtown, thank you. all seven buildings that use the jfk high school campus in marvel
7:13 am
hill will be open for the first day of school. >> the building was damaged by a gas explosion last month that injured three workers updating the science lab at the time of the blast. the building is structural sound and air quality poses no risk to students and staff. >> the citizens budget commission says it won't be until 2067 before the entire subway system is fixed. it found that 25% of all infrastructure like stairs and platforms and columns are in major disrepair and that doesn't even include the actual tracks and the signals. most of the worst stations happen to be in queens along the n and the q lines. the story line and the flushing line which runs the 7 train. the commission is recommending that the mta focus on repairs, but the hta says -- mta says it
7:14 am
needs to expand. 7:13 now. the empire state building has refused to go gold for childhood cancer. >> many parents and organizations have pleaded with officials to light up for one night in honor of september being childhood cancer awareness month, but the famous landmark is standing its ground despite being slammed for not going gold last year. the building says it cannot light up for all organizations and says in the past the skyscraper has lit up for world cancer day, breast cancer research. >> this is something that has a lot of people upset, we light it up for the super bowl when the yankees win, every sports team, but for childhood chance -- children. >> and those parents very passionate about the issue. all right, let's turn our attention back to the weather, a much lighter topic here. a pretty nice week -- steamy.
7:15 am
i am starting to notice more and more of the complaints on the heat and humidity. >> oh, really? >> yeah. any from ben simmoneau at all? not one. >> not at all. >> how many, you you are gloating. >> i have two work days. >> he made a bet that he will not complain -- >> they say i complain too much about the cold weather. >> i want to talk to your wife and see if you're complaining at home and not doing it here. >> she's probably mad at us because he takes it autoon her. >> no. that's not true. i'm just an affable, likable individual. [laughter] >> happy, happy. >> anyway, just do the weather. >> all right. 35 degrees, that's your temp, central park. same thing, newark, 66 in allentown, 6 of in poughkeepsie and dewpoints are again pretty high. 64 in central park, 70 in islip and montauk, even worse as you head out to the east, surrounded
7:16 am
by the water it does tend to hold that moisture up a little bit more. let's check out the wellness forecast. allergies, it's mainly the molds and the rag we'ds, so keep that in mind. uv index is up to 7, and unhealthy levels of ozone across the majority of the tristate. we do have an air quality alert, so a lot of times people want to talk about allergies and breathing issues in the beginning of the warmer season, now we're heading toward the end, and we still have issues. and ragwield is one of the more -- ragweed is one of the more problematic culprits out there. anyhow, lots of sunshine coming to you, but a back door cold front will come in and change things up, bringing in more cloud cover by tonight. look how much rain comes out on the computer models, not too much at all, just a few spritzes of rain here and there is all we should get out of it. the main thing that we're going to see is high pressure building in with much cooler high temperatures.
7:17 am
hey, if you happen to be heading out to the open today, high temp up to 92 for the afternoon session, the day session. the night session still going to be on the warm and sticky side, maybe an isolated shower out there, but i don't think there's going to be too big of a problem in the city or near the stadium. anyhow, a high of 29 tomorrow -- 92 today, 82 tomorrow. fantastic for labor day weekend, and the humidity takes a short break. let's bring in ines rosales and see if we're catching a break on the roads a and rails. >> not as big problems as we had yesterday and the day before with the long island railroad, the day before it was the bruckner. trach a look this morning -- take ooh look there, let's go to our cameras, take a look at the cross bronx, normal delays westbound heading towards jerome avenue. on the eastbound side you're final as for the george washington bridge, upper level
7:18 am
it's about a 10 minute delay, not bad, mostly from 80/95 express. mike did say it's hot out there, about 30 minutes inbounds, the holland tunnel, a 15 minute delay. >> does look quite hazy. all right, ines, thank you very much. >> yeah. it's going to be warm, but i say embrace every minute, because we know in about five weeks -- >> i'm going to be out there bundled up complaining about the cold. >> look at that, sky fox hd looking at the empire state building. tough to see new jersey. >> yeah, but listen, as long as you get a little bit of a breeze going, you'll be just fine, especially if you're going to the open today. especially. >> right. plenty of beverages as well. >> and just try to move from one side of the stadium to the next. try to stay away from the sun. >> let's take a break. good day is back in two minutes.
7:19 am
we thought we' d be ready. but demand for our cocktail bitters was huge. i could feel our deadlines racing towards us. we didn' t need a loan. we needed short-term funding. fast. our amex helped us fill the orders. just like that. you can' t predict it, but you can be ready. another step on the journey. will you be ready when growth presents itself? power at a wave of game-day excitement is rolling into dunkin'. taste the new tailgater breakfast sandwich, stacked with smoked sausage, fire-roasted peppers, and onions.

>> only if it's taking me someplace else. >> maybe the eastern end of long eye rand. >> oh, yeah, potentially. you're right. ben, we'll just go anywhere. get on a boat and go. i don't want to do any of the work -- >> well, it's not easy, it's hard work, but it's going to be a beautiful weekend to head out should you so choose. >> all right, the search is expanding for three men wanted in the fatal shooting of an illinois police officer. >> hundreds of law enforcement officers are look for the killer of charles glen wits gunned down yesterday morning. the 52-year-old officer was pursuing three suspects when he lost radio contact. he was found a short time later laying in a marsh with his weapon missing. he was a 30-year veteran of the department. all right, that kentucky county clerk who is refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, well, she will have a court date today. >> kim davis is her name, and she's facing a contempt of court hearing based on religious objections. the attorneys from the aclu say

7:31 am
are getting out of town, so maybe a little quieter at least in the city. school's back for some folks, but everybody's back next week. anyhow, what we had for the month of august and leading into september, so far this summer 90 degree the days, let's talk about that. one of them, we had one in the month of june. that's not that big of a deal. five in the month of july, eight in the month of august. that's quite a few. two so far for the month of september, but we've only had two days so far, so it's been a very warm start. the average number of 90-degree days is 15, and we've already had 15, looks like we're going to have at least one or two more, last year we only had eight. that was a cool summer. i know a lot of folks weren't happy with that. here's what we have this morning, central park 75 degrees, dewpoints and humidities pretty high with a partly to mostly cloudy sky here in the tristate. there should be some cooler air working its way down to the south, and that's going to change things up and bring us some more cloud cover by later
7:32 am
on tonight and eventually some showers. but not so much during the day. during the day we've got another hot and humid one. high up to 92. storm chances late tonight, early tomorrow morning and a high of 28 tomorrow, but it stays on -- 82 tomorrow, but i stays in the 80s over the weekend. let's bring in ines rosales and check out the conditions with the roads and rails. >> good morning, mike. it's not so bad out there. of course, sop problems. 78, there's a problem westbound as you approach the garden state parkway. late running construction causing a headache as you get off the verrazano bridge, one lane closed, so causing a problem westbound. on the eastbound side you're fine. of there's queens, just your normal delays on the lie, the van wick's slow have and the wge -- bqe, a slowdown there.
7:33 am
on the 59th street bridge, doing fine on the upper level. as for the trains, everything running on or close to schedule this morning. >> thank you very much. 7:33 now. it was a mess yesterday morning on the long island railroad, there was no way you can sugar coat it. raising a serious red flag about our infrastructure, especially transit problems. >> what is worse is that this is certainly not the first major issue that we have had -- >> no. >> even this summer. and it's not just the east river, it's also things that are going on getting from new jersey into new york as well. but let's bring in veronica vander pool with the tristate transportation campaign which is an advocacy group, and you were telling us you essentially are encouraging people to take mass transit and not drive. transit. >> well, we want to provide transportation options for people in the tristate region. we recognize not everyone can option. that's what we work to do.
7:34 am
>> let's be honest, frankly, it looks like our train infrastructure whether it's the lirr, the problems we've seen with metro north, the issues with new jersey transit and amtrak, doesn't matter which direction, the train system in this area is a mess. >> well, one important thing to keep in consideration is our transit system and infrastructure is incredibly old. the portion washington branch which fail -- port washington branch was built in 1864. our subway system, 1904. we've not seen the level of investment over the decades needed to neighbor this aging -- maintain this aging infrastructure. >> so many riders say we are paying for it, our prices keep going up. we are doing our part. we are told to use mass transit is, we are told that's an effective way of getting around, and we're doing it and we're willing to pay for it, but it's not being kept up. only one person is keeping up their side of the bargain, to so to speak. >> that's absolutely true. i'm a transit riders, and what we've seen is, yes, we're
7:35 am
constantly on the hook when state or federal officials are not investing enough or cutting back on funding. new jersey has actually reduced its funding for new jersey transit by 88% over ten years. that's significant. >> all right. who do you place the blame with? is it with governor cuomo in new york? is it governor christie in new jersey? is it the federal government in washington? you know, the mta has said that the city, mayor de blasio is not contributing enough. is everybody to blame enough? >> we're talking about the hudson rail tunnel especially. >> everything. the situation with the lirr. >> this is a historical problem, and it goes beyond the today. this is congress' problem, new problem. what we've seen over decades is an inadequate level of investment, so this certainly goes beyond cuomo and christie and president obama. where we are right now is these are the elected officials who are in power who should be showing leadership and championing more funding for these transit programs. >> but again, we can't just say
7:36 am
that it goes beyond the president. yes, one person has been kicking the ball down the road, right? but somebody has to do something at some point. i remember when we were doing a story about the new hudson rail tunnel and all the problems that nj transit was having, it was senator schumer saying this is going to be armageddon for those people who rely not only on nj transit, but also amtrak on those rails. if this fails the way people expect it will in the future, very near future, we are done for. >> that's absolutely true. 200,000 people come through those tunnels every single day. 3300,000 people use -- 300,000 people use lirr. if we continue to see the level of crisis that we've seen on our transit system so far, we're in bad shape in days ahead. >> and i think people say it's only going to get worse. we've got a very busy september coming up, u.s. open going on now, fashion week, i think, starts next week. we've got the pope coming to town, the president, the u.n. general assembly, school is
7:37 am
going back into session for just about everybody. we asked governor cuomo yesterday if new york is prepared to handle this, especially the crowds for the pope, and here's what he had to say. >> i hope there's a lot of energy and a lot of excitement, and the mta is doing everything that they can do to be ready for it, but it's going to be, you know, one of those great new york moments. and it'll be very exciting. but whenever you have millions of people mobilizing throughout the city, i mean, it's not going to be an easy, it's not going to be an easy task, but it's going to be a great couple of days. >> do you think our mass transit system can handle the crowds we're going to see in the next couple of weeks? >> any of these events put tremendous stress on our transit system. i think preparation schedule, a lot of contingency planning needs to be put in place, and i know that the city and state are working on that.
7:38 am
that is really the key. new jersey transit underestimated the amount of transit users for the super bowl, and we saw what happened there. tree times as many people used the system than was projected. i think what's important is making sure there's p contingency plans in place. >> let's hope they do it, because it's getting out of control. veronica, with the tristate transportation commission, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you very much. we'll see what happens over the next couple of weeks. still to come on good day new york, why the men's number one seen, djokovic, was dancing at yesterday's u.s. open. that's coming up.
