you to get yourself there in the first place is a problem. > so far there have been no arrests in the case. police are not saying if the victim ande suspects connectednt through any particular websiteei or app.pp he's been on the run for 48r 48 years. tonight an escaped prisoner isr back behind bars. police arrested rock earth stach wits at his home today. the 71 year old is originally from georgia. he was serving a sentence for robbery in 1968 when he escaped from a georgia prison work camp. since then he's been living in n small town under the name of robert gordon and works as as boat repairman. >> i knew robert quite well. he used to fix boats locally. he was a nice guy. everyone liked hip. he was a big jolly old guy. he recently applied for social security and that is what lead authorities right to him. they also say he was prettypret speechless when
him. since it had been so long theyhe thought he never would be found. he applied for social security,y i'm just saying. you can kind of figure after 48 years, they forgot about me. developing tonight in kentucky. rough there, people are cleanin up. take a look. ripped through homes and businesses. this is amateur of the twistiert that tore t through the small town of mayfield. take a look at that.hat. several homes and trailers were destroyed. at least 10 people were injured, but everyone is expected to survive. several other people posted pictures of the tornado on social media.ia. let's get right to sue palka. those images are just wild. we were talking about peoplebout taking pictures with tornadoes behind them, but that one wasone very close. that was risky to be continuing to film that when they were what
appeared to be just yards away. a rough night in kentucky, guys, we're getting a little bit showers. we may not be looking at that for a while since we're still in this kind ever stable environment. i'm kind of surprised that we're even getting a little bit ofof lightening tonight. mostly this is going to be a dry start on our wednesday morningoi commute. these showers are going to pusho through pretty quick limb most q the most part it will be over. the end of the week finally we think it's going to warm up a little bit. chilly today. we did get into the mid 60s. we'll get there by the end ofen the week.th and yes we'll also get some dry days in by the end of the week. tomorrow, mostly dry, can't raw out a few showers in thefe afternoon with a temperature of 66-degrees. on thursday, we're looking at another mild day, warmer, anyway, 73-degrees with a about it more sunshine trying to get through.th a mild day still can't rule out
describe it was a the spotty off chance of a shower.howe thursday looks like one of theof better days this week. i want to run through the radar. we've had some activityacti developing very quickly, crossing 270 right around the gaithersburg area.burg that's pushing east. a little bit more in the pipeline out to our west. this is how it's going to go. i did see that this is expanding so now we've got our area of rain all the way from 97 down through rockville and a little bit of lightning had beenad showing up as that continues too push from west to east. also watching a system, a little bit of a rain shower down pour south of temple hill and again some light rain across the district with a about it moret out to the west. give this a few hours and i think it will be gone, but a about it of a dampening can lead to fog and lower visibility. futurecast run this throughs again
look of this is going to push away over the earn shore and across the bay.. we think the afternoon may feature another quit hitting shower. 8 in the morning, possibility of a few foggy spots. maybe enough to reduce visibility.ç it's showing a littleitt improvement at 8:00 a.m.:00 fog could be around for part of the day. at the surface tomorrow still oo thrre cooler side. only a degree warmer than it wat day. thanks to the winds still coming in off the ocean. a few showers around potentially tomorrow afternoon as well. temperature wise we're still stuck in the 60s. 52 for gaithersburg which is why it's quite unusual to see thunder analyte thing with aly temperature as cool as that. highs tomorrow mid 60s, maybe fredericksburg can get up to 7 # degrees and we wrap it up withih your fox5 seven day forecast. that 77 ought to feel nice on friday for those of us who are ready for a little warmup. w there
thunder and a few showers. and dryer t for sunday. next week looking a littlelitt warmer and dryer as welch that'' your seven day forecast. day jim, anything going on in youror department? it was a greatgrea season for the capitols. was the optative ward because just about a moment ago thehe penguins scored. the caps go home, the penguins go on. he was cut. that resulted in a four-minute power play. nasty, hit there. the pens scored not one, but two power play goals.oals 33 seconds later by carl hag line on a deflection, the pens were up three nothing.othi and the caps battled back. the third period, the deficit 3- 1. mat murphy, now 3-26789 later on the caps. john carlson
