that coming up. take a look at this picture from south dakota. wow, that storm moving in complaining with lightning and now ginger is here with the latest. >> good morning. you can feel that stickiness out here as the warm front approaches and that same storm system that created more than 140 severe storm reports in the last 24 hours is going to be moving off the east coast and bringing us some more rounds of showers but look at that. that's the damage from eastern kentucky. they'll do the damage surveys to see what did all of that in a walmart in eastern kentucky. could and probably will be a tornado. the tornado and damaging wind and hail threat today is in the plains. it's in minneapolis and western wisconsin, it's in northern iowa so those are the areas later this afternoon and evening to look out for. then anyone from dallas up through kansas city right through wilmington, north carolina, heat advisories moving in. we're talking feels like heat indices well into the 100s for
millions of folks. i'll have a lot more coming up. >> feel like july. the race for the white house and both hillary clinton and donald trump in full swing after july 4th. clinton hitting the trail with president obama for the first time today as trump takes one of his vice presidential prospects out for a public spin and cecilia vega has the latest. >> reporter: good morning to you. a big week for both sides as clinton's campaign hopes president obama's strong approval ratings give her a boost against donald trump. bring on the reinforcements. hillary clinton calling in the heaviest of heavy hitters today. president obama. a tag team duo against donald trump and the president is clearly ready for a fight. >> that's nativism or xenophobia or worse. >> reporter: two former rivals turned allies turned travel buddies and head to north carolina, the swing state, together on air force one. and the man they're teaming up
against is waning a war of his own on twitter, trump tweeting, why is president obama allowed to use air force one on the campaign trail? who pays? the answer, the dnc and clinton campaign pick up the tab but taxpayers do end up footing some of the bill. >> she's crooked. that's why we call her crooked hillary. >> reporter: both sides hoping for a better week ahead after a bad weekend. her winter interview with the fbi over her fooels still looming large for hillary and for trump, this tweet showing what appears to be the jewish star of david over a backdrop of money. the image previously posted on a white supremacist message board. the clinton campaign calling the image blatantly anti-semitic. trump firing back calling clinton's statement ridiculous saying the star is often used by sheriffs who deal with criminals and criminal behavior. he later changed the star to a
circle. and now the hunt for a vp pick is on. we now know housing secretary julian castro is being vetted by clinton's team and trump is fueling speculation with some recent meetings with iowa senator joni ernst and indiana governor mike pence, all of this, of course, comes ased lead-up to the convention is a couple weeks away. >> and will be campaigning with bob corker today. kristen soltis anderson, thanks for joining us. you have joni ernst and mike pence and senator bob corker out there today. a much more public vetting at this point. who on the list stands out to you? >> i think you still got to think about mike pence as a big player here. you know, donald trump loves to use twitter to telegraph his campaign strategy and was tweeting nice things about mike pence pretty recently. indiana a key state for donald trump during the primaries and then also a key tate if he wants to pull off a strategy of winning the selection by winning
kind of rust belt states, winning in the midwest. >> he could. mike pence could shore him up with conservatives right there. meantime, you've got hillary clinton out on the campaign trail with president obama. could be her biggest asset in a lot of states but also carries some liabilities. >> certainly. president obama right now is seeing really high approval ratings compared to where he's been over the last couple of years. still very popular within the democratic party. if there are any questions about hillary clinton's ability to unite the party having barack obama out on the campaign trail will certainly put some of that to rest. >> okay, kristen soltis anderson, thanks very much. >> we move on to that huge fourth of july celebration overnight that was out of this world. nasa cheering as the juno spacecraft made history rocketing into jupiter's orbit now set to unlock mysteries about the planet and the universe and gio benitez has this exciting news. >> reporter: a truly exciting and historic mission to figure out the secrets of one of the most mysterious planets in the universe and now nasa is right

kingdom. the man in custody suspected of helping carry out the attack near the u.s. consulate in jeddah. these bombings follow that deadly week with massive loss of life and coordinated attacks showing the increasingly global reach of isis in bangladesh where an attack on a popular cafe killed 20 including a young american college student. in baghdad where isis carried out its deadliest attack ever against civilians in that country. more than 170 people and, of course, that horrific attack on the istanbul airport, officials worry that we are entering a new phase with isis, instead of concentrating on claiming territory, there are now more than ever going after soft targets and civilians around the world, george. >> to spread fear everywhere. martha, thanks very much. now to breaking new details in the death of a young american in italy. a suspect now in custody after a

expecting more testing on the water and waiting to see if beaches are closed again today. george and robin. >> get out that have water. >> really. >> okay, thanks, eva. to amy with today's other top stories. a flight escorted by fighter jet. >> from new york it has landed in israel after a bomb threat was made. swiss and french fighter jets scrambled to escort the el al 747 as it crossed the border between the two countries. the airline received an anonymous tip but no suspicious device was found on board. there was another airline security scare in chicago overnight. american airlines received a threat regarding the flight from london as it landed at o'hare. everybody was quickly evacuated. police boarded that plain. did a security sweep and american says it was a noncredible threat. well, two barges being used for a fireworks display exploded and burst into flames off plymouth, massachusetts. witnesses say at least ten minutes into the show there was
a large boom followed a by burst of flames. thankfully no one injured. the annual "a capitol fourth" independence day celebration was less than picture perfect so pbs decided to mix in clear fireworks footage from previous years and viewers slammed the show as fake calling it the milli vanilli of fireworks but producers say and claim it was the patriotic thing to do. all right. finally, one way to put it. president obama proving he is just like any other dad, not at all shy about embarrassing his kids. the kids wrapped up the fourth of july festivities at the white house by serenading his eldest daughter. take a listen. ♪ happy birthday to you ♪ happy birthday to you >> a big hug for dad from malia who is now 18, officially an adult. he said it was his last job.

explosion in new york's central park that seriously injured an 18-year-old tourist. police insisting the blast not an act of terrorism. >> what seems likely at this point is that we have i'd refer to it as an explosive hobbyist or experimenter, somebody that made this material then he wanted to test it. if somebody lives in that vicinity their backyard is central park. sort of an ideal location conducive to conducting that kind of experiment. >> reporter: the victim now identified as connor golden, a florida college student and avid skateboarder. his friends say he was simply walking on some rocks in the park sunday morning planning a hike later that day when the unthinkable happened. >> we don't know what happened. there was a small explosion and then -- >> dust. >> then dust. >> beyond the caliber of fireworks just based on what he heard. we think he stepped on something. >> reporter: the moment caught on camera. >> reporter: nypd officers rushing to the scene.
horrified witnesses looking on. >> saw his friends standing there panicking, ran up the hill and found the young man laying on the rocks. >> had a very, very severe leg injury. >> reporter: his family telling abc news golden has now had his left foot amputated. >> his life will never be the same and i am very sad. >> reporter: now, golden's family says he is in serious but stable condition with his parents by his side. officials stress that he and his two friends are not considered suspects and add that the lab results for that material are due back tomorrow. >> so scary, okay, thanks very much. more on this from abc's news consul stants steve ganyard and former new york city police commissioner ray kelly. ray kelly with me. they're pretty sure whoever did this didn't mean to harm. how can they be sure? >> if you look at the device, it's a bag full of explosives. had no shrapnel in it. it wasn't tamped. wasn't in a container.
they can't be absolutely certain but the investigative premise you might say is this was perhaps a chemistry student, something along those lines trying to make fireworks for the events on july 4th. >> you worked on demining when you were at the state department. you're more skeptical. >> i think it needs to be an open question, george. we have lots of premeditation, somebody who calls themselves a hobbyist with an interesting in chemistry. somebody who went to length to create a dangerous explosive material so fourth of july, public place. i think we need to keep it as an open question as to what the motive and intent was. >> ray, one of the big open questions what this was. that could tell you a lot. >> absolutely and that's supposedly the results are coming back tomorrow. mark tory, who is an experienced investigator says it's chemicals that he doesn't particularly recognize. they'll be obviously continuing to check the cameras, they'll want to talk to this person if possible and do a lot of checking on the internet. see if there's groupings of
people that perhaps, you know, talk about making fireworks, that sort of thing so the investigation is far from over. >> and, steve, this explosive created a pretty big blast. >> it did, george. that's partially what's concerning here. the u.s. military has been dealing with these so-called homemade explosives in iraq and afghanistan for over a decade where they see jihadists or insurgents doing this home brew of unstable chemicals that they turn into explosives for ieds and so the ability to make a small batch could lead to a big batch and so this is not something that's benine i think as the police are making it out to be but something we need to consider as a domestic terror incident. >> comes at such a dangerous time. everyone on the highest alert because of the spate of bombings all over the world. >> orlando, istanbul, baghdad, we have saudi arabia, so it's understandable that people are on edge and i think, you know, they'll be getting to the bottom
of this fairly soon once they determine what's in the fwag. >> okay, commissioner kelly, steve ganyard, thanks very much. over to robin. >> all right, george, coming up on our big board much to discuss. nasa's groundbreaking mission to jupiter. the major mysteries they're hoping to uncover and the giant jackpot with kevin o'leary breaking down one of the largest lottery prizes in history and kevin durant's free agent move shaking up the nba getting backlash from fans. we'll be back with all that and a whole bunch more, two minutes.

welcome to crock country. welcome back. time for the big board and our team of insiders are here to take on today's top stories. nothing bigger than this. nasa pulling off an epic maneuver to get its juno spacecraft into orbit around jupiter. joining us is mike massimino. former nasa astronaut and professor of engineering at columbia university. oh, look at that big smile.
everybody is smiling. anybody involved with nasa and loving rocket science. let me tell you this, five year, five years it took, talk about the difficulty and what this means today what we're seeing. >> yeah, thanks, i think there's a lot of smiles around nasa. five years, two of those year, the first two years the spacecraft was around the inner solar system, came back to earth to use earth as a slingshot to propel it toward jupiter and now it slowed down and was captured by jupiter's gravity and can do its science. >> what will we find out? it will spend 20 months out there before it destroys itself. what is everyone hoping to find out from the mission? >> well, i hope it will answer big questions here. now the science begins. before the science could begin we had to have the engineering miracles. those occurred so it's in position to make its discoveries and big questions they're looking at by studying jupiter it was the first to form in our
solar system, by understanding its composition and atmosphere we can understand how the solar system formed and how we got here so science answers a lot of questions, it's answered a lot of questions but the really big ones like where did we come from, how did we get here, how did life form here can be answered by studying jupiter. that's what they're hoping to find out. >> i love that we can feel your excite many, mike. so but also talk about the ultimate -- >> it's big. >> i know it's big but the ultimate fate here. if my science class serves me right, 60 moons around jupiter and is there concern about it may damage one of the moons, may contaminate one of them? >> yeah, jupiter's gigantic, biggest planet in our solar system. that's why the spacecraft has to go so fast to be able to stay in or not and not get pulled in by its gravity but what they want to do, enter the atmosphere and burn up. space junk is not a good thing. if you look at our planet we've
been polluting the space around it with lots of stuff and can cause a hazard for other spacecraft but around jupiter they don't want to damage that. it's pristine and don't want to damage anything or being where we don't want it so the best course of action is when it's done with its mission it won't return any more science, have it enter the atmosphere and burn it up and get it out of the way. >> now to lottery fever sweeping the nation. mega millions and jackpot, $449 million. probably could climb by the end of the day. let's talk to kevin o'leary of "shark tank" about all that. kevin, i know you say the best advice take the lump sum payout but under what circumstances would it make sense for someone to take the annuity year by year payouts. >> it never makes sense because you're taking on the risk of a state going bankrupt. a multistate lottery but look at the situation of puerto rico to realize could it happen somewhere else, yes.
it's not a federal guarantee but a state guarantee. always better to take that risk out of the equation and take all the cash up front. what's wrong with cash? nothing. >> i don't think so, yeah, right. >> we asked barbara and you know barbara corcoran. we asked your fellow "shark". she said plunk it all down in a checking account and put everything in a checking account because you got to have some time to kind of get your feet underneath you. i don't know if you totally agree with that. what should you do if you have that lump sum? >> i never agree with anything barbara says, ever and here's again another situation. what -- you should take this amount and split it into three and put it across three different financial institutions. we also learn that the financial crisis '07/'08 some banks went away, lehman, bear stearns sewn i would recommend putting it into three institutions. today for cash you make about 0.04% or 4 basis points.
not a lot we're at historic lows but get some kind of interest in a money center bank. that would generate about $600,000 after tax, not a lot but it's better than nothing. >> it is better than nothing. you got that right, kevin. always good to see you. >> the definition of a high class problem, right. >> #highclassproblem. you got that right. you know who won the lottery, golden state. in the nba free agency they picked up none other than kevin durant setting off his own fireworks july 4th announcing he's leaving oklahoma city and seeping with the warriors. the former mvp joining the current one for more. bruce, where is the bow tie? you usually sport a tie. you got stubble and black shirt. >> don't judge me. i'm out here in san francisco enjoying myself. i hear the stuff about the spacecraft and jupiter. i hear about the mega millions and now we have kevin durant in

shorten says you can wear any pair that's comfy including the cheap ones. and pro tip, kids, comfy shoes, cheap, they go through them every six months. totally fine for their feet. >> for sun like you, debora, it's an investment because you'll run more than the average person. is that how you evaluate it to pay more. >> yes, price isn't everything. however, i found as a runner the quality shoes can cost over $100. and i wear shoes for different types of training from treadmill, trail to track and i rotate them out based on my training objective rather than sticking to a specific brand. >> hard to do this interview with you. >> i will slow down. >> i know. >> what's this we hear about some experts say, oh, throw them out every six months. >> totally debunk that myth when i talked to dr. shorten. throw them away when they wear out or they're not comfy.

>> good morning, it's 8:27 on this tuesday july 5th. i'm matt o'donnell. and "action news" is following big changes for septa's regional rail. matt pelman is filling in for karen. >> matt, all you have to do is go to septa.org check the train view. you'll see all the yellow delays. you get the sense that the new normal on septa isn't so pleasant. we are seeing delays with these new enhanced saturday schedules. it means a lot less service than what you're used to on normal weekdays and on some lines like cynwyd not running at all. you're on the buses instead. if you can, think not regional rails for next few weeks, possibly months. if you can use the norristown high speedline, the trolleys, the subways, those would all be better bets and they have extra service on those lines to help to accommodate you. meanwhile on 95 it's been very slow this morning. southbound from cottman through allegheny into the vine crash there has cleared
and we have been seeing extra traffic on 42 northbound with people coming back from the shore. so, it is a slow pace from the a.c. expressway on up to 295. matt. >> thanks, matt. just about getting rid of that rain that moved through this morning. let's go meteorologist, david murphy. >> matt, another look at storm tracker6 live double scan shows you that the heaviest rain is now off the coast. it won't be much longer before the last of those drops get away from us. 75 degrees in philadelphia right now. 73 at the shore and it is very humid. the afternoon call, 88 degrees, mainly just clouds and sun, warm and humid a-slight chance of a pop-up shower or a thunderstorm but most of you just stay kind of sweaty and otherwise drive. hot and sticky tomorrow, 94 with heat index getting up close to 100. i think we do reach 100 in some spots on thursday. excessive heat and humidity there. a high of 95. still hot and humid on friday, 92. at some point saturday probably early on we get a shower an thunderstorm. after that, matt things get better. >> thanks, david.
