12:01 pm
at all these people. probably about a hundred people or so in line. many say this is day two or three for them here waiting to see someone inside about their taxes. the irs say long waits can be common during tax time but they say this is because of recent cuts to the agency. adding to the problem, the irs suffered a major cyber hack last year. official says hackers accessed personal tax information for more than 724 thousand taxpayers. so this year, many people are asked to verify their identities in person before they can file. that's why a lot of these people are in line. some began lining up at 2:00 this morning when the office opens at 8:30. many tell us they were turned away just when they got to the front of the line because the office was closing. this man explains why he and his 16-year-old brother have been in line for days. >> somebody filed his taxes or their taxes under his name
12:02 pm
to resolve this problem by standing in this long line for multiple hours. multiple days, trying to get an answer. reporter: back live. i've made repeated requested from the irs about information for the long wait times. they've declined requests so far saying things can be busy and ask people to go online to irs dwov to get questions answered. those are not going to help the people who got letters. live in tampa, fox 13 news. >> that does not look like a good time. developing story. detectives are trying to figure out what sparked a fire that killed two people and a dog. fox 13 sheila reeves is following the investigation. >> according to polk

12:04 pm
pictures of the scene, as well as, crews work to determine how this fire began. happening. the fire investigation to determine the cause of the fire and a second investigation, a death investigation, that the polk county sheriff's office is handing on that end. earlier we did see a dog on the scene. possibly a dog used to sniff for any axel ranlts to see if there's anything suspicious or the blaze overnight. we're going to continue to follow this and keep you posted as we learn anything further. reporting here in lakeland, sha la reeves. >> an elementary school student is recovering after getting hit by a car. troopers say the girl was hit as she was boarding the bus for east side elementary. she was talken to the hospital with minor injuries. troopers ticketed the cars

12:06 pm
donald trump won more delegates than the next two combined and hillary clinton tripled her lead over bernie sanders. clin top and trump are working to lock in their party's nominations but turn their attention to the general election and each other. >> america never stopped being great. we have to make america whole. >> make america great again. it's going to be better than making america whole again. >> last night trump won seven state and ted cruz scored texas, oklahoma and alaska. marco rubio won minnesota and spoke in florida this morning. >> it's going to be close. we know how to win in florida and we will. >> the rubio and cruz campaigns know unlikely they will be unable to catch up but push a scenario where they take him down at the convention. >> if trump comes in the leader but doesn't have the delegates they can use party
12:07 pm
>> clinton won seven of eleven states. she has close to half of the delegates needed to secure the nomination. sanders won vermont, oklahoma, minnesota and colorado. >> i know secretary clinton and many of the establishment thinking, too big. i don't think so. >> the next big event for republicans is tomorrow night in detroit. in washington, fox news. >> let's go to political editor craig patrick. you spoke to senator rubio. >> even after the returns last night marco rubio still refuses to except the possibility donald trump may become the nominee of the party. i asked him back in august, he and all the others pledged that they would support that republican nominee. i asked him since rubio is
12:08 pm
con man, does that still hold true? here now is rubio's response. >> yeah. he's not going to win the nomination. it would be a catastrophe for the republican party. that's why i fight so hard. we're going to win in florida. country. if donald trump is our nominee we're going to lose badly and the conservative movement. a guy who supports planned parenthood. he won't take sides whn it comes to israel. i'm going to support the republican nominee because it's not going to be donald trump. it's going to be me. >> he is laser focused on the state of florida. it's a winner take all state on march 15. it is rubio's home state. if he does not pull off a win in florida it's hard to see how he can have a case for keeping on in the race. given the fact you are other candidates pledging ahead including ted cruz and john kasich. >> one of the predictions for front runner trump?
12:09 pm
this past week it's good news for donald trump and bad news for rue rub. you have a double digit lead in the polls for donald trump. keep in mind, a lot of people in the state have already voted. that is in the process. if rubio closes the gap he has to do it quickly and overtake donald trump in order to win the state if those polls are correct. that's the challenge he's facing and donald trump said, he is going to bear down on florida for the next 13 days. >> how is it taking up for the rest of the gop pack, cruz, carson and kasich. >> they are all staying in the race. ted cruz had a pretty good night. he won texas and won a couple of other states, as well. this keeps him going. he can say look at the leader board. i'm in second place. i have the best shot at overtaking donald trump. you have john kasich. he came close in vermont he can say and he's very close to donald trump in his home state
12:10 pm
and with that it leaves questions for ben carson where does he go. carson says he's not going anywhere. he's going to stay in the race because he knows it's a crazy year and anything can happen. he's hoping he can catch up. we have a situation where all of the are e maining candidates are not getting out of the race, regardless of the fact that donald trump nearly ran the table. >> good news for trump. let's go to the democrats. as expected, a big night for hillary clinton. >> say bernie sanders has a chance to stay in this a while because he has a lot of money. some $40 million and a lot small donors. for hillary clinton she won big in particular in the deep south. with this it gives her a huge boost. not just momentum but delegates, as well. hundreds of delegates she picked up. if you combine that with the super delegates who don't have to go by their states results it gives hillary clinton, right
12:11 pm
she's well on her way. 47% of what is needed to clench the nomination. it puts ie bernie sanders in a difficult position. i think clinton would be on pace to clench the nomination prps by may. sanders has shown he can come out of nowhere. >> thank you countrying patrick. >> local supporters and volunteers open a hillary for office. donald trump will be back in florida on saturday. he's going to hold a rally at the university of central florida cfe arena. the event is free but those interested have to register for tickets. doors open at 9:00 a.m. and trump is scheduled to and peer at noon. it was once used to scare enemies. now the super fortress bombers

12:20 pm
little bit higher over the past 24 hours. it feels more humid outside. as the cold front swings through it's going to drop the humid again. we're at 75, dew point at 64, humidity 69%. the winds out of the west at 9 miles per hour. the warmest temperatures again will generally be away from the coastline. places like sebring. brandon at 81... along the coastline still seeing mid 70s. st. petersburg at 74. new port richey 73. a bit cooler across the panhandle. the cold front is lined up about there. behind that slightly cooler temperatures and drier air. ahead of the front, winds are generally out of the weatherly direction. breezy in some cases then you see that wind starting to turn more towards that northwesterly direction on the backside of the

dew points just a measure of the amount of moisture in the air. much lower. that's that very dry comfortable air sitting up across the panhandle. that's going to swing back down across the state later today and into tonight. across the southeast high pressure building in. you can see plenty of clear skies. as the front pushes to the south, it clears out the skies and i think we're going to deal with high, thin, serous clouds through the day tomorrow. across the northern part of the country, still like winter time where you see snow. maine back to new york state, pennsylvania, west virginia back into ohio and portions of michigan still dealing with the snowy conditions. watch that front. that will work its way to the south, clearing out the sky some. then we've got another front, which will be pushing down across the southeast. you can see some showers along this front. this front is ever so slightly stronger. basically, that means we'll see
12:22 pm

12:29 pm
there's limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto . nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily p and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. p xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. r get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions.

12:47 pm
you found it fifteen thousand feet down. nearly three miles below the surface of the ocean. deeper than the titanic. >> about a mile deeper. >> and it was full of silver? >> yeah. over 2800 bars and we found but about 22 of them. it was a maizing feat. we had to find this ship at fif ten thousand feet. next time you fly on an airplane and hit fifteen thousand fit look what a house looks like. >> you're using remote controlled submarine type machinery? >> yes. remotely operated vehicles. we don't risk human life and we get extended bottom times. we've had dives that last over five days. >> it was a valuable haul. what was the total value?

12:49 pm
see on looking over downtown tampa. cloudy skies rite now. depending on where you are you may see more sun. some areas seeing a good deal of sun right now. otherwise some other spots really dealing with a lot of cloudy skies. that's all because this front continues to slowly work its way down the state. we have batches of clouds that move over head and they will pass through the area. by tonight we'll be clearing out the skies and drying the atmosphere out, once again. dropping that humid. it's been creeping up over the past 24 hours. away from the coastline is where we're seeing the warmest temperatures. like branden at 71. new tampa, sun city center all at 77. you head to downtown st. petersburg currently at 74. plenty of these 77s from land o lakes, dayton city, bush. all at 77 degrees. brooksville 72.
12:50 pm
most places low to mid 70s. lakewood ranch 78. mid 70s with some 80s showing up in the highlands county. the fronts located to our north. you can see the dew points have climbed back up into the mid 60s. that's why you head outside. it's not necessarily humid but you notice there's a little bit of touch of that humidity in the air but that much drier and more refreshing air sitting across the northern part of the state. this front will continue to slowly work its way to the south, clearing out the skies, high pressure will build back in for a time. but then we have another front back to our northwest. that is going to swing down into the southeast and bring a couple of showers as he wed into friday. still have winter on the map across the northern part of the country. places like columbia, ohio sitting at 27. chicago 24.
12:51 pm
on the contrast, we stay mild for today. daytime high of 75. tonight clearing skies, overnight low of 54. tomorrow not bad. the area. that daytime high of 74 degrees. here's your seven day forecast. 20% chance of showers with the next front on friday. otherwise, you head into the weekend, looks good, mild temperatures and we start to warming trend as we get into next week. >> thanks.
