is about four:15 in the morning i'm told right now in london. the building is in the process of being evacuated we are told. the entire building is engulfed in flames. there are a number of injuries now being reported. we don't know how many. it is a rather chaotic situation there. we are told that more than 200 firefighters are on the scene fighting the flames that go property second floor all the way to the top of that 24-story building. we are also told complicating this is the fact that there is some fear that this building could be weakened and could collapse, so some firefighters are having to keep a fair distance away from the billioning. again, this is an ongoing situation in london where it is about four:15 in the morning, a high race apartment building engulfed in flames. there are injuries. we'll bring you more information as it becomes available. the university of virginia student who

yep, because maybe this creature. a neighbor spotted a large unidentified bear. one neighbor told us she's seen them before. these are black bears and the black bears you don't have to worry as much about. theer ' usually just looking for food. i mean, if you corner them or something i'm sure they're going to right to protect them. to be honest with you, my husband and i are photographers and i'm going to get my camera and go out looking around. by the way, if you happen to come across the bear, the national park service says don't run. instead stand tall and slowly put your hands in the air to show that you are a human. tony also has some good advice on that as well. >> put your hands in the air and waive them like you don't care. they always run like this. >> they do, you're right. they have that interesting
>> it's still warm out. it feels warm in here right new. >> it's so warm out tonight, almost tropical without the beach. without the beach, the sun, the president obama trees. >> the dabbingries. >> and your umbrella. sorry about that guys, we're going to serve you up a cooler day tomorrow. not cool, less hot. how is that? >> do you have any tears? >> but i tell you it will come with the possibility of a couple thunderstorms as well. some of those could be around as early as noon or 1:00 and they will be loaded with moisture becaus it is so oppressively humid overnight there will be plenty of moisture in the atmosphere for any storms to produce pretty heavy rain. they'll be scattered around the area we do have aing trigger that is a cool front that will be moving through during the day and settling down to the south overnight. temperatures will return to
83-degrees -- actually 84 is normal. we may be blow that, believe it or not, right around 82-degrees on thursday, which will feel fantastic. it does come a little bit of a price in that the late week is looking unsettled. chances for showers or thunderstorms in the peak heat of the day as a frontal boundary will be lurking nearby most of the rest of this week. let's get a check of where temperatures are head hed. the average high is 94. we were 95-degrees today. we do have a heatwave going on. maybe we touch 90 tomorrow. but that should be it for a little while we get a break from the intense heat on thursday at 82. friday not bad at eight p, but we start coming up again on sunday. the front down to our south is going to move on through and that will also bring with it some chances for showers and storms. today la guardia was 101-degrees, nubbing, new jersey, 99. we were 95, down
you can see how warm new york still is. boston at 80. not a lot of relief just yet. but our front coming down should be able to help in that department. we will likely feel the relief much more widespread on thursday. -79d degrees as early as noon we could start to see some thunderstorms 86. by 5:00 90. while we still get the one more warm day as the evening, the morning is dry, noon hour not terrible but i'm going to pause this at 4:00, the nats are playing and you can see where there will be some showers and downpours in the vicinity. the brighter colors indicating the heavier. they're starting to push away seven, 8:00, not sounding the all clear after nine, 10:00. there will be the possibility of flash flooding because these storms will have a lot of rain and they'll be moving slowly. ou
in my future, i'm twice as likely to have a stroke. i'm at higher risk for depression. i'm 26% more likely to develop an irregular heartbeat. i have a 65% higher chance of developing diabetes. no matter who we are, these diseases can be managed or prevented when caught early on. because with better research, the right medicine, and with doctors who help keep me healthy to begin with, we will thrive. ♪♪
