working out of dover, 95 lightning strikes in the past 15 minutes, if this holds together it will hit cape may county and wind gusts close to 60 miles per hour and also hail. this shows you the hail swath, and we have hail detecting on storm tracker rolling through dover, that shows the strength of the updraft with these thunderstorms and more is on the way. this is really ending the heat wave. two hours ago it was 95 in philadelphia and now temperatures dropping into the 80s and 70s. rain cooled but the humidity is still just through the roof. dew points do not get much higher than this in our region. generally in the low to upper 70s and the reason why, this rain has a tropical connection, if you look at the satellite 6 along with action radar you see the conveyer belt of moisture and these showers originated in the gulf of mexico. and when have you the high dew points, any of the storms can
ring out a lot of rain in a short period of time. that is why we have the flash flood watches posted until noon tomorrow. future tracker 6 showing are you out and about and the rain is still here and heaviest is south of philadelphia and the good news, is lingering showers and the heaviest moved out and we could be dealing with flooding problems then. this is what to expect, severe and soaking thunderstorms, most active between 9:00 and 3:00 in the morning, we are looking at the potential of 1 to 3 inches of rain and locally could get more than that. and the potential for damaging winds especially south of philadelphia, so the five-day at 5:00 showing tomorrow the heat wave is over after a week, mid-80s. 86 degrees and some thunderstorms possible and sunshine by the afternoon. we keep the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms through the weekend into monday. tuesday we dry out and partly sunny and i'm tracking the
"action news" continues with meteorologist, adam joseph, jaime apody, rick williams and monica malpass. hello again we'll check back in with monica malpass at the dnc in a few moments. right now we are talking about strong storms that rolled through our area. look at a type lapse from the sky 6 hd in philadelphia. the clouds turned the skies dark as the rains poured down and people had to be rescued from flash flooding. walter perez is standing by with more. >> reporter: hey rick, this was a fast moving heavy hiter of a storm moving through the area, some standing water remains here on industrial highway in chester. look at this video and how powerful the storm was moving through the region and that resulted in the need for at least two rescues.
this one at flower street had two people inside and became stranded in high water, and rescuers came in to retrieve the people and great job by firefighters there. and seventh and lloyd with one person inside dwot stuck in waters as well and the female driver was rescued and nobody was injured in any case and the rain has stopped for the most part for now. and the waters receded a short time later. walter perez, channel 6 "action news." >> all right thank you. meanwhile, weather is also being blamed on causing this fire in newcastle county, delaware, lightning start aid blaze in the attic of this home. this is in hockessin, everyone made it out safely. breaking news out of camden now, there is a boil water advisory for people west of cooper river. it was prompted after a major water main break, "action news"
reporter john rawlins is live at the scene at river road and del air roads. >> reporter: hi rick, too much wash coming out of sky and behind me too much water coming out of ground. quite frankly that is not suppose to be tlx a break in the water main beneath it. it broke at 2:00 this afternoon and that caused a lot of issues for consumers of water in camden. for folks west of cooper river, they are in a boil water alert situation, that is 40,000 people. about 14,000 connections. the whole idea here any water that you should ingest in any way, should you mix it with juice or baby formula or wash your vegetables, that water should be boiled first to an
roiling boil. to kill any bacteria that may have gotten into the system. it's possible it could have happened. they want to be on the safe side as a precaution. the 40,000 people west of cooper river on the camden water system should be boiling their water on drinking bottled water. it looks like it will take longer than 3 to 6 hours and it could take overnight just to fix the water line. boil water advisory for folks in camden west of the cooper river. live in pennsauken, channel 6 "action news." >> thank you. now, to our coverage of the final day of the democratic national convention here in philadelphia. tonight the spotlight will be on hillary clinton. and this is a live look at the stage, where she is expected to
give the biggest speech of her political career. she lays out her plan to move america forward and monica malpass joins us live from the dnc. >> all eyes are on hillary clinton tonight, her aides are telling us she is focusing on the theme of stronger together and will not shy away from going against donald trump. she will be introduced by her daughter chelsea and others will take the stage tom wolf and nancy pelosi and a performance by carol king. moments ago we heard from michael nutter. >> have known hillary for decades i have known her as a champion for our cities and known her as a change maker for our citizens and i know her as a leader whose career is defined by a simple creed.
gsd. get stuff done. >> nutter when on to take a few shots at donald trump saying we can't afford to turn the country over to a man that thinks the presiden presidency is an entry level job on a television show. >> we have been at the 4th street deli where we have an outpost of reporters, nydia han is live. >> reporter: hi monica. race and black lives matter and blue lives matter and all lives matter, collectively they are one of the hot button issues and the subject of the final 4th street face-off this afternoon. >> we are aiming to dismantle racism. >> i believe that black lives matter doesn't mean that all
lives don't matter, it means there is an issue going on right now and there is a lot of police brutality focused on black lives. >> i believe that more dialog, more community policing and more training and putting labels on things is a none starter and prevents discussion. >> law enforcement has to be trance parents outside of investigation agencies have to look at the issues and then a decision has to be made by the appropriate authorities as to whether the officer was right or wrong, but to say the officer is wrong period without getting all the facts and i'm totally against that and it splits the community more so than ever before. >> most change i have seen over my adult life has been city based change and that has been affected how our federal reaction, our government overall nationally has reacted to it,
whether that is supreme court decisions or something else. but i think a lot can happen on the city level and it starts with the conversations that we had today. >> we certainly hope so, you can see the entire face above on our "action news" facebook page where it streamed live earlier today. it's never too late to join the conversation, we hope you do. live in queen village, channel 6 "action news." >> thank you nydia. we are constantly posting updates on wa is happening inside and outside of the convention, go to facebook, our page is filled with the politics and fun including interaction with you and the 6 abc twitter feed has up to the minute breaking news. go to facebook.com/6abcactionnews and at 6 abc on twitter. our coverage of the convention continues for you in a few minutes and we'll be back to give you a unique look around at that time.
