tv 10 News at 530pm CBS November 14, 2016 5:30pm-6:00pm EST
"10news at 5:30" starts right now. >> hi and good evening. i am courtney robinson. >> i am mark rivera in for reggie. you have been sharing your photos of the supermoon. these are just a few of the hundreds that were shared on our 10news facebook page. the supermoon lit up the night sky. look at that. that is beautiful.
photographers were having a heyday taking a look at that unique sight. >> we are diving into whether the supermoon is just a bunch of super hype. it depends who you ask. the science is right. it is closer, bigger, and brighter, but will you be able to see the difference? an astronomer tells 10news sarasota newsroom reporter isabel mascarenas at the very least the supermoon has you looking up and excited about the night sky. >> reporter: hard not to catch a glimpse or photo or two, for three of the supermoon. the closest to the earth by 17,000 miles in 69 years. it's 14% bigger and 30% brighter. >> it's pretty. >> reporter: carol took photos of the moon at five this morning. >> it was beautiful. not as big as i thought. >> it's going to look a little bit bigger, but for the casual observer, i don't think they will be able to see much difference. >> reporter: jeff rodgers,
planetarium in bradenton suggests focusing on the moon's brightness. do it without the telescope. >> very, very bright in your telescope. not a good time to see features on the surface of the moon. >> reporter: the full moon impacts tides, too. florida's east coast has been under a coastal flood advisory tides one to two feet higher than normal. while the high tide is high right now. the national weather service says the supermoon's super tide will only be above normal for the tampa bay area. and unlike popular belief, rogers says a full moon, super or not, doesn't impact the human biology or behavior. >> maybe it's an excuse to act a little bit crazy. >> reporter: if you can't tell the moon is bigger and brighter, it's worth a little moon gazing. >> really it's a full moon, is what it amounts to. those are beautiful in their own right. >> reporter: in bradenton, isabel mascarenas, 10news wtsp.
on the east coast are stronger. about 6 inches of water flooded the streets in coconut grove. there could be another 6 inches on top of that because of the seasonal king tide. flooding incidents are up about 400% in miami beach. in the area's sea level rises two feet, you would see a radical transformation. that's why the city is spending at least $400 million trying to keep the tourist mecca higher and drier. >> we are that, you know, the waters are rising high enough that it's interfering with public safety. >> bobby, did you get a chance to see the supermoon last night? >> yes, i did. >> i saw it through some trees. >> i saw it through the higher clouds. the best time to see it is on the horizon, when it's coming up, because the illusion makes it look bigger on the horizon. unfortunately, we won't have much of a chance. this is visibility satellite.
space. the green is the rain. look at the clouds. a different picture of it, you see the cold front's there. yeah, we have thick clouds headed our way. does not look like we will see it tonight. as a matter of fact, tomorrow morning the sun sets after seven, just before 8:00. sets around 7:52 in the morning. comes up at 6:10 p.m. there may be a couple glimpses of it. the distance between the earth and the moon varies 30,000 miles. right now it's about 221,000 mi it is a lot closer. >> all right. we told you at 5:00 tampa bay supporters of president- elect trump have mixed emotions. we are talking about mr. trump's movement on some of his core campaign promises. i am looking into why campaign promises could be so hard to keep. instead of fully repealing and replacing obamacare, mr. trump
keeping popular pieces of it, like coverage for people with preexisting conditions. on prosecuting and jailing hillary clinton, trump said clinton did some bad things, but added the clintons are good people, and he doesn't want to hurt them. and on promises of building the wall with mexico, now mr. trump is open to having fences in some places. there are three big reasons it can be hard for candidates to keep campaign promises. the first, a president tries to keep a promise, but because of opposition. in 1976, candidate jimmy carter wooed texas voters. he promised to deregulate the oil and gas industry. in office, he was blocked by liberals in his own party. the second possibility, the president never intended to keep the promise to begin with. richard nixon campaigning in 1968 said he had a secret plan to end the vietnam war. most historians think that's a
for five years. similarly, john f. kennedy promised in 1960 he would close a mittle gap with the soviet union he knew didn't exist. third, the president can look at the campaign promise as a starting point for negotiation. now, all of that could be what we are seeing here. but i want to put all of this into context. i am working on a story about past presidential campaign promises and how well they turned out. i will show you all new tonight at 6:00. happening right now a georgia father will soon learn how much time he will serve in prison after a jury convicted him of killing his soon. jurors convicted ross harris, including murder, for leaving his toddler in a hot car in 2014. harris will be back in court for sentencing in early december. medical marijuana is expected to grow into a billion dollar plus industry here in florida over the next four
found the newly passed amendment 2 is expected to bring in about three-quarters as much money as colorado's medical and recreation sales. and folks right now we are staying on top of your evening commute. lots of taillights on the tampa end of the howard frankland bridge. taking a look at a shaky camera there, too. a live look at the backups on i- 75 near fowler. northbound side there not too bad. all right, folks. bucs fans got to take home a little bit more an a wedding ring that belonged to wide receiver short. >> he didn't keep it. the fan went out of his way to return it to short. 10sports justin granit was on the sidelines at ray jay when the pair reconnected. >> reporter: raymond james stadium this afternoon in congestion with the nfl's salute to service, on a day when the bucs gave back to the
when air force staff sergeant josh ortega isn't at work protecting our country, you can find him at ray jay. that's where he was last thursday. after the bucs' loss to the families, wide receiver cecil shorts gave ortega his glove and something else he didn't intend to. >> an hour after the game ended before i realized there was something in the glove. >> when i realized that, i saw that it was a ring. >> reporter: shorts' wedding ring back to him sent him a tweet. >> he said on twitter he would give me a signed jersey or something. i told him, don't worry about it. you just want to get it back to you. >> reporter: true to his military form, ortega didn't want a thank you. today after the bucs beat the bears, ortega gave shorts his ring. >> very personal. something that symbolize southern california much to me and my wife. for him to actually give it back when i forgot about it in my glove, it means a lot to me.
there were plenty of heroes at ray jay on sunday. they are the men and women like ortega. and while the bucs put a smile on his face while deployed overseas, today ortega did the same for a man who just wanted to find his wedding ring. >> she couldn't believe somebody would be that nice to return a ring. it was just showing his character the way he was raised. it was pretty cool. >> that is awesome to see. >> i know. that's a cool wedding ring, what is that made out of? >> i am surprised he plays in his wedding ring. you would think he takes it off. i bet now he makes sure he has that off. >> for sure. and of course thank you for your service. you go online to buy some clothes, maybe even a coffee maker. >> yeah. >> but what else do you buy online? companies are finding new ways to push the edges of e- commerce. why you don't have to be a hands-on shopper.
neighborhood or something, or girls that feel like they need to have the royal treatment. >> yeah. that is what i am 'talking about. the royal treatment right there. a birthday party for everyone in one incredible neighborhood. that's coming up on the road. holiday shopping kicks off in the next few days. this is your chance for an awesome giveaway. this week "10news this morning" as well as the gold diamond source has teamed up to give away a
