6:04 pm
obviously, you know, as cindy made landfall, it was tropical storm throughout the day today. a lot of rain down here through the parishes of louisiana southeastern texas as you might expect but all the rain is extending up into the tennessee river valley as well and this feed of moisture, you see it coming into the new orleans area there, south even louisiana and up into parts of alabama and southern mississippi. that will feed of moisture goes all the way down and touches basically down around the equator, so there's plenty of available moisture that's getting pulled into this storm and it's slowly moving. rain is the big problem. there will be some localized rain down there in its path maybe 12 to 15-inches of rain. in terms of how much rain through saturday night, look at northern sections of louisiana up into arkansas and as it interacts there on the higher elevations of arkansas then pulls out into the tennessee river valley, the ohio river valley and that's going to
6:05 pm
rain and it kind of moves in our direction as this remnant low pressure system. it looks like the heaviest rain we're going get from what's left over from cindy will be friday night into saturday morning, maybe saturday early afternoon. and i think everybody stands a chance here of getting 12 to inches of rain but you got to understand where there's a few thunderstorms, it could be much more than that, so right now there's no flash flood watches issued but i suspect things may be changing with that as we get a little bit closer to this particular event. again, friday night through saturday morning, sunday looks great, next week looks phenomenal, seven-day forecast coming up. tony. >> ♪ >> the senate republican healthcare bill is out tonight and it is already in danger of not passing. for weeks now, the plan was negotiated behind closed doors. the talks were so secret republican senators didn't get to see it until today. but now that it's out yet another bruising political fight with
6:06 pm
looming. but more importantly, some republicans are also vowing to vote no. o fox5's tom fitzgerald is lie on the hill tonight. fitz the president criticized the house version of repeal and replace so a lot is riding on this senate version. >> reporter: yeah, tony, president trump said he wanted something that was not as mean. he said he wanted something with heart. the senate republicans thought they had come up with that after all of this negotiation but already today on day one, this bill is in a lot of trouble. four republican senators now saying they will not vote for this. that group led by senator rand paul. this comes at a time when the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell took to the floor first thing this morning and warned if obamacare is not replaced, insurance companies pulling out of states, the result mcconnell says will be dramatically. >> obamacare isn't working by nearly any measure. it has failed and no amount of 11th hour reality denying or buck pasng
6:07 pm
more americans are going to get hurt unless we do something. >> reporter: things also got emotional and h heated on capitol hill today. you're looking at the russell senate office building. about 43 protesters were able to get into the building and then they tried to enter senate offices including senator mcconnell's. they were taken out by u.s. capitol police, 43 under arrest and charged tonight with obstruction. so, what is in this bill? well, the republicans who drafted it say it is going to get rid of the individual mandate, it is going to get rid of obamacare taxes but they say it will not cut medicaid as quickly as the house version would. they also say that it will allow the tax credits that currently exist for individuals on the individual market, those will not be doled out by age anymore. that will be on income. still, the nail in all of this right now is being led by republican rand paul.
6:08 pm
that he and four other republican senators are no votes on this right now. why? well, not because the bill they say is in line with the house version, simply put rand paul says this does not go far enough and does not repeal obamacare. >> myself and three other senators are releasing a statement as we speak and the statement will say that we cannot support the current bill. we're open to negotition but we want the bill to look more like a rebeach we're afraid it looks like a reiteration or a keeping of obamacare. >> reporter: and that's where we are right now. make no mistake, heading into today, mitch mcconnell had really no margin of error to begin with. he had to hold on to all of his republican votes except two that would have given him a tie breaker with the vice president. don't expect any
6:09 pm
vote on this. if there's going to be a vote on this in july, there remains to be seen whether they're going to be able to make up that ground or make up enough of the changes in the bill in rand paul and his cohorts demand. we're live on capitol hill tonight, tom fitzgerald fox5 local news. >> president trump hit twitter today to let everyone know that he did not make and does not have any recordings of his private conversations with fired fbi director james comey k you may recall following comey's firing last month the new york times released a report saying the president asked comey for loyal too. days later the president tweeted comey better hope there's no tapes of their conversations before he starts leaking to the president. for the last month and a half the white house would neither confirm nor deny the existence of those tapes. we now know they do not exist. we'll take a closer look at the president's tweet and of course the senate republicans healthcare bill on 5 at 6:30. tweet us your thoughts right now. let us know was think. use that #5at630 then look for your tweets coming up on outer loop political show at
