10:09 pm
of cuba. from there, things could go downhill in florida beginning sunday night as what appears to be a circulation just on the west coast of florida, as seen by the national hurricane center. but again, that very big cone there, that white outline is the path that it could take. right now, i'm starting to see a little agreement that this is going to be an impact on florida. we're going to consult this spaghet model. you can see the movement again. and how tight they are as they get close to hispaniola. what we have been seeing yesterday is once we got out to that fourth and fifth day, a lot of divergence. it is starting to get a little bit tighter. the red line now is the line that the hurricane center is putting the track on. a number of scenarios, i would bring a category one hurricane to florida. the way things are looking right now. main impacts sunday night and monday. a lot in play with this and another update coming in soon. i would also mention that the hurricane center is going to

10:26 pm
most assists in the game. >> oklahoma city might have thought they were one year ahead of the curve. i don't think a lot of people expected you to get by san antonio, but feeling the pain to losing a championship, does it make you come back hungry next year, sage i was so close, i have to get that ring? >> you know, you always want to come back and have a chip on your shoulder. in our case, we would want to do the same thing again. so it's not just because we lost, but because how competitive we are to be on the stage. going to the finals with a great, great lesson for us and we learned what it takes to be a top team in this league. so we have to continue to keep working at the pace we're going on and hopefully we get there one of these years. >> that's dave ross reporting. durant is just 23 years old, but oklahoma city thunder forward has won three consecutive nba scoring titles. the first to do that since

10:29 pm
10:30 pm
this is fox 5 news at 10:00. just five days away from the republican national convention. last minute preps are underway in tampa, florida. now, of course there's another concern tropical storm isaac. earlier today, i spoke on the phone with bob, asked him what happens if isaac presents too big of a threat. >> well brian, you have multiple decisions along this path. obviously what takes place inside the building is the view of the republican national committee. this decision would be made with input from the governor, from fema, from local authorities as well as the
10:31 pm
republican national committee. we don't anticipate getting to that point, but if we do, it will be a decision where everyone is around the table. everyone has the same information, and everyone will make the right decision. >> how do you think that you won't reach that point? do you think you'll make a call before the national convention kicks off if. >> no, no, no. i don't think so. we're watching the storm track. when you live in florida, you get accustomed to this. this is part of our existence here. we deal with half a dozen of these every year. we watch them, we monitor them, we track them. most times and tampa has not been hurt by hurricane in 90 years. so we aren't anticipating getting hit by this one either. we are taking precautions. we have our plans. we live with this reality. and we're prepared to deal with it, but our focus now will be getting ready to host a event for the republican national committee. >> and you said there are multiple decisions made along
10:32 pm
the way. what happens on the inside of the building is up to the rnc. if they get kicked off, would the governor supersede that or force evacuations? how does that work? >> you know, it's a rolling decision, because with these hurricanes, it all depends on the track and the velocity. and it depends on the land fall. it depends on the rain fall and storm surge. there's a lot of considerations involved in this. >> tampa mayor, we are keeping our eyes and ears out for what's going on down there and hoping for the best for you. thank you for joining us. >> like wise, me too. thank you, brian. in tonight's health alert, the west nile virus back with avengeance. released new numbers today and it's one of the worst outbreaks. more than 1100 cases have been reported so far this year, including some here in our area. there is one confirmed case in d.c., two in maryland, one in virginia. casey has the latest from texas, which is being called
10:33 pm
the center of the outbreak. >> some alarming norms from centers for disease control and prevention. there are more than 1100 confirmed cases now of the west nile virus. and more than 40 deaths. that's three times the amount of cases usually reported during this time of year. and while infected people, animals, or mosquitoes turned up in 47 states, texas is the hardest hit, with about half of the confirmed cases. planes taking to the skies around dallas to hit mosquitoes with insecticides. officials there say the cdc is pleased with how they are targeting the virus carrying pests. >> their response was that this is an excellent operation and they have no suggestions on improvement at this time. >> texas, not the only state stepping up its antimosquito efforts. crews in oklahoma using robots to target breeding areas in sewers. >> when we came through here
10:34 pm
the first time, it was loaded. >> it does not control the adults, but it will control subsequent generations. >> two west nile cases in horses have been confirmed. while there's no vaccine for humans, but there is one for horses. >> what it ends up being in veterinary medicine with the horses is, we give them supportive therapy. when you have this type of problem going on, it would be negligent to not vaccinate. >> the cdc is increasing its support to local resources, pledging already $2.5 million for things like spraying. the only three states in the u.s. that have not reported west nile cases, hawaii, vermont, and alaska. in dallas, casey segal, fox news. >> experts think the mild winder, early spring, and
10:35 pm
summer helped stimulate the virus. if someone handed you a glass of bottled batter and tap water, would you know the difference? this is the test today on i street in northwest today. they are hoping to convince people that d.c.'s water tastes just as good as the stuff in the bottle. you can save a few bucks along the way and meets safety standards. sarah from d.c. water came by and put my taste buds to the taste. here's how it turned out. >> all right, so let me try this. tastes good. tastes a little minerals. but tastes good. let me try b now. my guess would be b is the d.c. tap water. >> which tastes better?
10:36 pm
>> um, they both taste fine. they have a little bit of a different taste. i get -- i tend to put things in wine terms. earthness from b. but they are both good. >> a is d.c. tap water, b is bottled water. >> so i got them reversed. >> mineralty. >> a little stone in there. >> that is surprising. you wouldn't think that. >> it was deer park water and a lot of people know that some of these bottled water companies bottle tap water. deer park is not one of them. they are spring water, which can come from wells, so there's still a lot of funny business going on there. aquafina bottles tap water. maybe d.c. should bottle their tap water and sell it. >> uhll have to swirl my water like that next time i drink it. maybe i'll find some mineralty. >> it's a habit.
10:37 pm

posted two pictures of the royal partying in the nude in a hotel suite. the prince reportedly invited girls back for a game of strip bill yards and that's how it ended. the pictures are real, but officials aren't saying anything else. brits are reacting. >> he is a human being. he's entitled to do, he's having a private party in a private room or whatever. he can do what he wants to do. >> i would have to say, might show a little bit of poor judgment. i mean, i think he knows the status that he has and what he needs to represent, so it would be a little careless doing something like that, you know. >> prince harry is no stranger to scandal or partying. he previously has been photographed, which was not as funny, wearing a nazi costume to party. >> and l. l. cool j.'s role is paying off.
10:47 pm
he took down a burglar. l.a. police say he found an intruder in his home and held him down until police got there. no one was injured in the incident. back here at home, the city of d.c. celebrating chuck brown on what would have been the god father of go-go's 76th birthday. chuck brown memorial park, if the council approves part of the park, will feature a statue at the amp theater, which would be renovated. >> we, the brown family, would like to give thanks to the mayor and the city and for all your support throughout the years for my husband and his career and we can't wait for the brown breaking. >> we are hopeful chuck brown park will be a place where residents go to remember the lifetime and memories they shared together through four
10:48 pm
decades of chuck performing for the city and love affair he had for the fans. >> brown's four children were there for proclamation day today. the council still needs to give approval to the legislation creating that park. it was a nice day for them to be out there today. >> sure was. >> until the rain came in tonight. >> you know, mostly rainy at nats park. and a couple other spots. >> there is that path, and it kind of formed up yesterday and the day before, it tends to do that. everything is clear now, we'll watch for fog later tonight. and probably tomorrow, we won't see much in the way of showers or thunderstorms. as isolated as they were today. now watch, something will pop up in the mountains and drift east. at this point as we look at our information, it looks like that won't be happening. it's a nice night. the clouds are beginning to clear out. as we do that, especially when you get away from urban areas, we may see fog forming. first stop will be the radar
10:49 pm
and it's a clean sweep here. we're not getting any returns. here's what it looked like earlier today as we had showers and storms once again firing up in almost the same spots. many of them along the potomac and it rained hard there for a little while at the nats game, but it doesn't seem like it caused too much of a disruption, unlike last night or the night before. we are done with this round of rain. be happy if you got it. it is still dry, but remember, high pressure is going to build in and as it slides south and east, it will suppress those symptoms and we should have mostly dry conditions. this has been caused by a boundary that were close by, a disturbance moving through earlier this evening. high pressure will move in. a nice stretch of days ahead for us. how about today's high? dulles 85. bwi, 84. we'll probably be right around there tomorrow, maybe a degree or two warmer. looking like a nice day and the humidity will be fairly comfortable as well. our temperature right now, 73
10:50 pm
degrees. a little warmer for those of you living in the quantico area at 79. annapolis 78 degrees. then you get out suburbs and finding 60s. out here in the highlands, 50s tonight. so those crickets will be chirping out there in the overnight hours, under partly cloudy skies. again, real comfortable in the suburbs. a nice morning. it will be gorgeous. we burn that off quickly for a warm day that won't be too humid. 86. wouldn't be shocked if it gets to 87 or a couple spots south of d.c. around 88 degrees. look for lots of shine at 8:00 in the morning. a little fog here and there, but nothing we think will require an advisory. 81 degrees and by 5:00, 85, and hopefully we won't be dodging those thunderstorms. now a little bit more on tropical storm isaac. we will be getting an update in a little bit and bring that to you in our news edge at 11:00.
10:51 pm
and this is going to probably become a hurricane in 24 to 36 hours. it does not look like it will be a major hurricane. that would be category 3 or over. so not a monster type storm. but to be certain, it is a large storm. florida will probably be affected if it stays on the path it's on. late sunday into monday, it would be mostly a rainmaker they would have to worry about flooding. could be category one winds, which is 75 miles an hour. the thing to keep in mind, when it affects florida five days from now, and those patted earns are very uncertain this far out in the game. there's a lot more to learn about it. one last look at the satellite picture, i want to mention, there's something else trailing behind. tropical storm isaac. it's tropical depression ten. it could become a named storm. we're hoping that will take a different path and perhaps curve closer to bermuda. still too early to tell on that
10:52 pm
one. the tropical weather season is heating up. it always does. tomorrow, a great day. 36. 86 degrees. it won't be long before i'm saying 36. we got to enjoy this while we can, because we wait for the summer to get here and it comes and it's too hot. before you know it, it's too cold. this is just about right. it's looking like a good one. an isolated storm friday or saturday, not a big deal. >> and put it in perspective. >> dr. oz coming back to d.c. he is teaming up with fox 5 to give free physicals. i spoke with him earlier this week about the goal of this initiative and how you can sign up. >> so, i understand you're offering these physicals to the first 1,000 people eligible to sign up. so that's very ambitious, first of all, to offer these to a thousand people. what makes someone eligible? >> pretty much anyone can come. if they live in washington, they want to get checked out
10:53 pm
