4:01 am
traffic, at least one person was killed and several others injured in a major pileup along the new jersey turnpike. >> this crash happened last night during a mix of rain and snow flurries and below freezing temperatures in cranbury a township southwest of new york city. the pileup included more than 15 vehicles including four tractor-trailers, two box trucks an full loaded bus and multiple cars. at one point after least one car was on fire. the series of crashes led to the closure of all southbound lanes. police are investigating whether icy roads played a factor in this accident. >> karen is following details in traffic david has the accuweather forecast. good morning. >> good morning, everybody. we still have a little bit of leftover sleet trying to push new areas south of philadelphia. looks like it might clip wilmington and some of this is going to cross parts of south jersey over the next hour or so. might even take a little longer than an hour to get past us but in through philadelphia and other areas south of allentown and reading, we did have a fresh coat of sleet overnight and some freezing rain and you're going to find whole new round
4:02 am
of freeze-ups on sidewalks and side streets as you go around this morning okay. we do still have a winter weather advisory in effect until 6 o'clock this morning. i'll let you know if that gets extended but looks like it will probably expire because the active precipitation in most cases will be over. but nonetheless for the morning rush expect delays. you'll find side streets glazed cars certainly lightly glazed across much of the region and driveways and sidewalks should be slick this morning so be careful of that and some side streets also picking up a fresh coating of ice. 28 degrees in philadelphia, 29 in wilmington, 26 in allentown, 26 in trenton 28 degrees in wildwood, new jersey. and on your smartphone, we're going to probably still hold about 28 by 8 o'clock and then final well dollar get back up above the freezing mark and things should improve. noon 37. 3 o'clock temperature is 40 and we'll hit a high of 41 probably around 2 o'clock this afternoon. by 6 o'clock we're probably still a little above the freezing mark. karen, a lot of icing up overnight. i'm hoping the main roads are okay anyway. >> we're looking live right
4:03 am
now and taking a look at 95 at cottman. overnight construction in the process of clearing. we're watching for slick spots but main roads like i-95 at this point have been treated and are wet. it's really the secondary roads, the ramps and the sidewalks that you need to be most careful of as you're heading out. and of course the big story we've been following is that horrible accident in the overnight hours and it's on the new jersey turnpike southbound closed at exit nine. multi vehicle accident including a fatal accident here. let's take a look at some of the video and the action cam was on the scene and you can see parts of the pileup in the mile long backup as we dealt with this in cranbury township, new jersey. this is affecting you if you're up in north jersey coming down because it's the southbound lanes that are affected at this point up in new jersey. the turnpike closed at exit nine. i think this is an example of what can happen with icy conditions. you see that terrible pileup even on a main road like the new jersey turnpike that was treated so be careful about accidents like that one. i want to take you to the
4:04 am
maps. in mount laurel burlington county 295 northbound past 73 we have an accident involving a vehicle that went off the roadway. the right lane and the shoulder are currently blocked so not the main highway but it can be -- it could be situation that is caused that vehicle to slide off the road. looking in new jersey we're seeing people moving fine. they're not slipping and sliding on 42 northbound here at creek road but just be careful as you're headed out tam. >> thank you karen. let's go over top mobile6 it's on the move this morning. "action news" reporter annie mccormick is riding around the region giving us a look at what it's like outside this morning. good morning annie i think we're having a little trouble with annie's microphone. across penn's landing you can see how the roads look shiny. the roads have been especially the major ones have been
4:05 am
brined but that's still an indicator that depending on where you are that brine may not have gotten everywhere. some of that brine could be black ice especially as the commute starts to get going you want to leave car lengths between yourself and other vehicles and take your time getting where you're going this morning. >> now let's take a live look at philadelphia international airport. no problems being reported right now here or anywhere else around the country but we do have some school closures most of them once again like yesterday in the north and western suburbs of philadelphia. that slift on and they're also scrolling at the bottom your screening stay on top of the wintry weather with the storm tracker 6 app. the free download gives you access to our radar 24/7 and the hourly accuweather forecast on the go. >> we're following breaking news this morning. forced to make an emergency landing in houston. this happened when the pilot noticed the landing gear was not coming down. "action news" reporter erin o'hearn is live in our sat
4:06 am
center. she's got breaking details. >> reporter: good morning, tam. incredibly frightening moments for the 52 passengers and four crew members on board that american airlines flight traveling from philadelphia to iah in houston texas. now it was only a three hour 42 minute flight but the last 45 seconds or so were probably the longest and most terrifying that of flight. let's take a look at this exclusive video. you can see the sparks coming from the plane there as it actually had to land on its belly. according to officials, this is flight 1825 and as it was preparing for landing something went horribly wrong. the nose gear did not deployment as you can see there are sparks flying because the plane actually had to make an emergency landing on its belly and now caused as you can see sparks to shoot from the bottom of the plane. passengers had to exit the aircraft using the -- they had to exit the aircraft using the aircraft slides. one of the passengers had to
4:07 am
be taken to a local hospital. but fortunately the injuries of that passenger are apparently not serious according to an airline spokesperson. now, american airlines released this statement in response immediately after the emergency landing stating in part "american's primary concern at this time is for our passengers and crew. we are in contact with authorities and cooperating with response efforts ." obviously at this point the ntsb is investigating the incident but again, one person injured on that flight taken to a local hospital. that passengers is expected to be okay. hopefully within the next half hour we're going to hear from one of the passengers who was on board that flight and we'll bring you more information as we get it. for now we're live in the sat center, erin o'hearn, channel6 "action news." back to you. >> let's turn to dave murphy. not a lost precipitation right now but are we picking things up later? >> precipitation kind of wrapping up over the next couple hours matt but we're looking at a fresh coating of
4:08 am
sleet across much of the region from precipitation that was farther north. double scan tracking a couple additional freezing rain showers and there could be a little additional sleet mixed in here, too as we have seen some of that overnight as well. i'll go in a little bit tighter and we'll start this in motion and it does look like this is basically heading toward the east. wilmington right on the cusp of this but looks like you might just dodge this latest bullet. down in cape may county we have changed over to some sleet so i would be careful of icy sidewalks or road conditions down there and the same thing goes for really the entire state of delaware just below wilmington. above where this active precipitation is falling we did have earlier precip and up through most of our northern and western suburbs there is the chance of an additional coating of sleet on sidewalks driveways and maybe some side streets. as we take a look outside, we have conditions that appear to be drying out in penn's landing. little bit of a wet look to i-95 there in penn's landing
4:09 am
right now but the cars cautiously getting up and down the highway. i would use caution even on the main roads as karen mentioned because we did have at least one major accident last night on the new jersey turnpike and it could be that there are some icy patches even on the mains. 28 degrees currently in philadelphia. winds out of the north-northeast at 16 miles per hour so it's another cool morning out there. despite -- or in addition to the problem with ice under foot and under your tires we also need you to bundle up because the wind chill in philadelphia is just 16 degrees, that's what it feels like. satellite and radar showing that you this appears object last of the precipitation. it will have a tendency to shoot toward the east and then kind of spin away from us. a lot of clouds out to the west behind it but we expect the clouds to give way to sunshine today. taking a look at temps here's good news. 28 by 8 o'clock. by 11:00 we're up above freezing your high around 2 o'clock we'll get to 41 degrees. that will feel kind of nice. high temperatures across the region wilmington has a shot at 43. 42 in millville. probably the mid to upper 30's
4:10 am
in our northern areas like allentown and reading and 38 in atlantic city and cape may. a bit milder today. got a lot of stuff coming at us for the rest of the week, though. a couple of cold shots. the first one is friday when we'll only see highs in the 20's and believe it or not by sunday we may only get into the teens and this could be the coldest air of the winter sorry an -- so far and a couple of chances of snow showers. during the morning be careful of some new coating of sleet on side streets and sidewalks in particular and then increasing clouds on wednesday, 39 degrees. we'll still be well above freezing in the afternoon. on thursday a high of 40. in the after of afternoon and evening a front comes through that could produce snow showers and there could be a light accumulation thursday night. friday windy and colder 23 degrees. valentine's day looks like we only get up to about 29 degrees and on saturday afternoon and night there's another chance of snow showers that for now on most models
4:11 am
look light although there is a coastal low that may want to get involved and in that case it might be a little bit more. but in any event i would go for at least snow showers on saturday night and then there's that sunday. windy and frigid, a high of just 19 degrees. president's day sunny and cold. >> things going downhill. [laughter] >> little bit. march is coming, though. >> all right. thanks david. 4:11 now. and still ahead tragic new developments developments in a house fire in delaware. flames attack the house and spread top neighboring homes. >> let's take a look out here on sky 6 hd in a moment. there we go. taking a live look at philadelphia international airport. dave murphy is keeping an eye on all your accuweather details. let's go on over to karen rogers. >> we're looking outside live right here city avenue at conshohocken avenue mostly wet but some slick spots. we're seeing some roads with ice on them. the details when we come back. >> ♪♪

4:14 am
>> ♪♪ >> welcome back. you're taking a live look here looking out over 95 there at penn's landing. you see the school delays and closings running at the bottom of your screen. many places are opening up mainly on a delay. >> and most of these schools that are closing today are in the suburbs. karen rogers taking a look at that. good morning, karen. >> good morning. we're looking live here in chalfont bucks county and this is 202 parkway at bristol road. you can see the slick spots all over the road. at this point i think when you head out and it looks damp you still have to expect that it's going to be iced over and that's really problem out there. not that we're getting a lot of current precipitation but roads are icy and sidewalks most especially secondary roads and sidewalks parking lots we're dealing with that as you head out. we're seeing these cars move okay though. we're not really watching anyone slipping and sliding but you can see they're moving at a slower pace so be careful about that and that's a good idea to give yourself a lot of extra time and be prepared. don't make any sudden stops if you can try to avoid that by giving yourself a lot of space
4:15 am
between yourself and the car ahead you. we're not finding a ton of accidents at the current point but that's because it's so quiet out there with so many people sleeping. 295 northbound past 73 we have an accident where a vehicle ran off the roadway. the right lane the right shoulder blocked at this point on 295 here in mount laurel burlington county and we've been talking about the multi vehicle pileup on the new jersey turnpike. if you're heading northbound at this point it's going to be new jersey turnpike southbound is closed at exit nine. at this point it's not affecting the northbound lanes but this is in cranbury township, a fatal accident scene that still has closures at this point so watch for that that if you're coming southbound and from that pointer but a good idea of the kind of things that can happen with the icy conditions out there and this one happened last night. let's look outside at the ben franklin bridge. could be slippery. i are no problems coming in on the area bridges myself but westbound traffic headed towards center city 45 miles an hour here but 35 miles an hour speed restrictions in place at the betsy ross and the walt whitman and that's
4:16 am
because of the potential for those slippery conditions. let's take a look at storm tracker 6 live double scan and we can see the precipitation that we have is down to the south in wilmington and delaware. you're dealing with this as well as cape may county and we're watching the sleet as it comes down currently but be careful because the problem is it's already frozen if it precipitated in your area in the overnight hours which it has for most of us. it looks like it's a little wet but it's frozen gnat. >> thanks carney. more light fluffy snow will be falling this morning in new hampshire. this is the latest in a series of storms that are really piling it on in new england. highway crews started preparing on saturday trying to make room for the new snow that just keeps coming. the state department of transportation put aside $42 million for winter and storm cleanup and snow removal and have already spent an estimated $31 million. >> ♪♪ >> now to some developing news. we learned overnight the man rescued in a multi alarm blaze in wilmington has died. the action cam was there as
4:17 am
flames affect a row home on the 3900 block of north market street. firefighters rescued a 52-year-old man from a first floor apartment but he was rushed to christiana hospital and later died. homeowner nancy thornton was watching tv when neighbors knocked on her door and got her out. >> that's my home. i been here since 1984. the second -- where the white awnings are yes, so i just watched the smoke move into my roof. it's very disconcerting. >> nearly 80 firefighters worked on that blaze. the red cross is now helping displaced residents. fire investigators are on the scene overnight searching for the cause of this deadly fire. this morning they estimate the damage here at $400,000. >> students at millersville university came together to mourn the violent death of a fellow student. more than 200 students and staff members held a vigil last night to mourn the loss of karlie hall a freshman from chadds ford. hall's boyfriend 19-year-old gregorio orrostieta of kennett

square is charged with homicide. authorities say an autopsy revealed hall had been strangled. she was found dead in her dorm room on the lancaster county campus back on sunday. >> the western u.s. has been dealing with an outbreak of measles and now there's a case down south. georgia is one of the latest states to confirm a case of the measles. state health officials say the infected infant arrived in atlanta from outside the u.s. a recent outbreak involves over 120 confirmed cases and most of these cases have been linked to disneyland in california. closer to home the pittsburgh public school district is dealing with a confirmed case of tuberculosis. the allegany county health department cannot say who the student is because of confidentiality laws bought they say the child was not in school yesterday. officials are contacting faculty staff and families of students who attend three pittsburgh schools. they say while the risk of infecting other center city small all students should be

ah! come on! let's hide in the attic. no. in the basement. why can't we just get in the running car? are you crazy? let's hide behind the chainsaws. smart. yeah. ok. if you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions. it's what you do. this was a good idea. shhhh. be quiet. i'm being quiet. you're breathing on me! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance you switch to geico. it's what you do. head for the cemetery! >> ♪♪ >> 4:21. once again an accident that happened last night on the in turnpike in north jersey is still an issue this morning. one person died in this and much is still left to be done to try and get things moving
4:22 am
again. >> yeah, it's such a terrible scene because such a pileup right on the new jersey turnpike and although it happened last night you see the number of trucks and tractor-trailers involved with this, you can see that they're still trying to deal with this on the roadway on the new jersey turnpike. now, this is not affecting you if you're headed north. if you're from this area and you're about to travel up north on the turnpike, you're okay. the travel is if you're traveling southbound so if you know somebody that's up in middlesex county trying to come down from the turnpike, that will be the problem right there. we're watching some movement right now with trucks on the roadway through that center lane as they try to continue to clear and deal with this accident scene at this point but you could see the restrictions are there on the turnpike southbound near the molly pitcher service area, this terrible accident that's at exit nine in east brunswick in cranbury township middlesex new jersey. let's take a look at the maps. we're seeing speed restrictions here on the new jersey turnpike between salem and gloucester county. the delaware memorial bridge at exit 645 miles an hour
4:23 am
speed restriction there is north of exit six, 35 miles an hour speed restrictions all because of the icy conditions dave. >> all right karen. on the big board the main batch of remaining precipitation is actually a couple of them are in delaware and south jersey. very slowly pushing toward the east and this is light sleet light freezing rain but still enough to create some new problems on roadways and keep in mind that to the north where we may have nothing left maybe some drizzle or maybe nothing at all it's still below freezing and we're still looking at the potential for icy patches not only on roads but on sidewalks and perhaps driveways. 30 degrees is your temperature by 9 o'clock. 37 by noon. by mid did you or late morning we should be above freezing in philadelphia, 40 by 3 o'clock with a high of 41 probably around 2 o'clock this afternoon. not a lot happening across the country except for down in the southern states, the carolinas and virginia where there's a rotating area of low pressure producing a mix of rain and snow and on the big board at the airport all green aircraft so no major delays. we still have a bit of a light

snow falling in newark, new jersey. guys. >> thank you david. well, the hpv vaccine is meant top vaccinate young girls against cervical cancer anew study addresses some concerns about its safety. since hpv is a sexually transmitted disease. some parents resist it. harvard researchers looked at data on thousands of girls who got the shot and say that does not seem to be the case. for parents it could be a reassuring message. also an enticement to get their daughters vaccinated. we'll be right back. >> ♪♪

4:30 am
see what we can expect in accuweather and karen rogers has her eyes on traffic. good morning. >> we've had more sleet and freezing rain overnight. now it's breaking down in parts of new castle county delaware, parts of southern delaware and some of this clipping cape may county and even down there in the southern tip of cape may we have some of this that's falling as sleet so there could be some icy roads in and around here of course but even up in areas to the north where the precipitation is over some overnight sleet and freezing rain came through and it has produced some new problems with ice on some sidewalks, side streets and perhaps some larger roads as well. so, you will want to be careful early on. there's a winter weather advisory that technically expires at 6 o'clock this morning. the active snow sleet and ice is in the process of ending as you saw but in these areas and maybe even points to the north again there are still some new icy coatings out there. take it easy on the morning rush and expect delays. cars will be lightly glazed so you'll have to get out there and do some scraping. i know i did in delaware county and driveways and sidewalks
