4:50 pm
only storm at the present time we are tracking. dew points, 71 in philadelphia and 71 in millville and 74 in dover. this is the fuel for the storms and tropical like downpours released. that is why you say when you step out the door, it's really humid out here because of that moisture. cooler at the shore with the sea breeze and the sea breeze will help to choke the storms as they push into southern new jersey and why we don't have the severe thunderstorm watch for the shore communities or the extreme southern parts of delaware. satellite and radar shows energy pivoting in and helping to unite the storms and roll through here during the overnight hours, at 6:00, it's mainly through pennsylvania, still wading through parts of delaware and new jersey waiting for storms and scattered in variety and not everyone will get hit by these

4:55 pm
biggest class action settlement. vw ordered to pay $15.3 billion. about 10 billion will go to folks that bought a volkswagon or audi thinking they were buying an environmentally friendly car only to find out that their emissions were vastly higher than the law allows. so here is what the company is offering to do. first, buy back your vehicle regardless of the condition, they will take it back and give you the trade-in price before the cheating was made public on september 18th, 2015, those begin in the fall. here is the other option, they will fix your car but you should know the fix itself has yet to be determined and needs government approvals and vw is not even submitting the possible
4:56 pm
fixes until november, but if you choose to get your car fixed you'll get paid for your troubles, some where between $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the age of your car. experts say waiting to make a choice is better for your bottom line and clearly not the case for the environment. the cars do violate the clean air act and you risk the chance of getting the violation, you have until september 1, 2018 to make a decision. >> that is a huge undertaking it appears. >> thank you, that will do it tore "action news" at 4:00. i'm sharrie williams, join me along with brian and adam tonight and every night for a full hour of "action news" at 10:00 on phl 17. now here is monica malpass with a look ahead at 5:00. >> coming up next we are
