7:01 am
rhodes. a lot to talk about with the weather. >>dave: decent start to the day. we don't have the clear skies we had yesterday morning but we have low level moisture today. that will translate into afternoon and evening thunderstorms. we're at 70 degrees at tampa international. dew point of 77. that is sky high. showers and thunderstorms take ov in fact, for the rest of the week, they'll be 40%. rain chances over the weekend depend upon the path of the tropical disturbance over the northeast caribbean. still disorganized but the computer models say by the end of the weekend, early next week, things could be different. we'll discuss that in a few minutes. >>vanessa: i-4 westbound, delays building heading into the interchange.
7:02 am
crash with some lane blockage involving a vehicle that hit a concrete barrier, blocking the left lane in the area of the connector, taking nine minutes to get from the mlk exit to 275. give yourself extra time if you have to head this way. we're seeing some pretty notable delays here in the pasco county area. u.s. 41 just south of state road 52. there is a crash here. just because it is heavily backed up northbound direction approaching this roadway, southbound as well, backup to lockett road 52 is jammed from the suncoast to 41. if you are able to avoid eastbound state road 52, you could save some time. we'll let you know what we find out. right now we have sky fox in pinellas county. we believe this could be a pedestrian involved crash. we're told this is mlk near 54th avenue north, seeing some lane block jamgs here.
7:03 am
anything about this crash as well. >>russell: happening right now, the search for survivorors after a powerful earthquake in central italy. 37 people died, dozens more hurt. quake had a magnitude of 6.2. there have been more than 20 after shocks, several rescues and we'll update the story throughout the morning. also this morning, the first non travel case of zika here in the bay area. it >>laura: and health officials are wondering how this woman got it. they're also taking precautions as you can imagine. shayla reaves is live for us in pinellas county to tell us what is being done to protect kids at school. pinellas county school district has acted fairly swiftly on this. good morning to you. >>reporter: word is spreading so
7:04 am
message out to parents online. this as state and local health officials continue to try to look for answers, answer questions in connection with that first non travel related zika case here in pinellas county. so we can tell you just yesterday, the pinellas county school district did release a statement saying in part, pinellas county schools will keep working with state and local health departments. there's already policy in place to deal with mosquito control. teachers will share information with the students and at this point, recess is not affected. now, the message encouraged concerned parents to spray their kids' clothing with bug spray repellant. some are up to eight hours. spraying before school should provide coverage for the school
7:05 am
share the information. governor scott shared this message tuesday. >> we have a total of 42 non travel related cases in the state. we've been able to deal with other mosquito borne viruses. if we all are aggressive in what we do in our lives and we know we have very good local, county health departments and very good mosquito control, we can beat this just like we've others. >reporter: the governor is expected to spend some time in hillsborough county today. he'll sit down with local officials and participate in what is being called a zika round table. that's scheduled for 9:30 this morning. of course, i'll be back with another live report for you coming up here in the next hour. back to you. >>laura: thank you. it is 7:05 now. bradenton police are looking for a man in connection with an
7:06 am
>>russell: they say he killed a 10-month-old child. police are looking for 21-year-old aaron patrick nary. they got a call about a dead 10-month-old child. and they found the 10-month-old and another 3-year-old in the custody of nary who was baby-sitting them. they are looking for him. he has active warrants for child abuse and neglect when it if you have information, call the bradenton police department or crime stoppers. >>laura: a pedestrian is hit and killed by a car in pinellas county and it happened at roosevelt boulevard and 60th street north in clearwater. it's an intersection with a history of pedestrian crashes. 57-year-old man tried crossing roosevelt boulevard when he was hit by a chevy impala. he died at the scene. his name has not been rereesed. troopers are trying to notify his next of kin.
7:07 am
driver is not facing any charges. >>russell: and this morning, two men have been shot in a st. petersburg park. police say the incident happened around 3. 156789 this morning at the bay vista park. that's on pinellas point drive. two men age 25 and 29, one drove to the hospital while the other was found in the park with a gunshot wound. both are still alive. >>laura: strange development in a story that cannot get much stranger. investigators say an fsu student may have guzzled killed. police say austin herrof spent the morning with his fraternity brothers. he had a family dinner and walked three miles to his neighbors' home. they say he ingested some chemicals and then killed a woman and a man who lived at that home. when police found him, he was still biting the dead man's face. no street drugs have showed up in his system. however, more extensive tests have not come back. he is currently sedated with a
7:08 am
>>russell: donald trump is holding a rally for the florida state fairgrounds. doors open at 10:00. event starts at 1:00. you can rsvp on his website. this will be his fourth stop in tampa this year. he came in february, june and july and there's a good chance he'll mention donations made to the clinton foundation. doug has more on that from washington. >> clinton campaign disputes this report from the associated press but it does question the relationship between the clinton foundation and the state department that hillary clinton ran. if you wanted to meet with hillary clinton while she served as secretary of state, it may have helped if you had given money to the clinton foundation. associated press reported that more than half of the non government officials she agreed to meet with were donors, giving ammunition to her opponent,
7:09 am
is department should now appoint a special council to investigate. >>russell: it is now abundantly clear that the clintons set up a business to profit from public office. >> the clinton campaign is saying the data is flawed because it only includes private officials, not government officials and there's no evidence that anyone got anything beyond access. but of those 85 who met with clinton, at least 40 gave the clinton 100,000 and 20 gave more than a million. >> i think the appearance alone says that the public interest would be served with the appointment of a special council. >> odds of that happening are -- >> not high. >> not likely we'll see a special prosecutor but it may further erode trust in an election where both candidates are facing serious trust issues with voters.
7:10 am
our most recent fox news poll shows that individually, hillary clinton and donald trump are distrusted by more than 60% of voters. >>russell: and we've got this. a new opinion poll by reuters gives hillary clinton a 12 point lead over donald trump. a little closer when you add libertarian and green party candidates. clinton leads trump by eight in that poll. >>laura: and one trump supporter n' fairgrounds to see him today. he can just look at his leg. man named shawn got a tattoo of trump. he wanted a patriotic tattoo and said there was nothing more patriotic than trump himself. the tattoo took 13 hours. >>russell: that's pretty good. >>laura: pretty well worth it, he says. >> josh is so good at doing
7:11 am
just wanted a tattoo so much, it didn't cause pain. >> you have a tattoo of an american icon. we use his name to represent power and wealth. >>laura: tattoo was done at a tattoo shop on st. pete beach. owner says he's a trump fan, too, but would tattoo other presidential candidates if someone asks. equal opportunity. >>russell: that's pretty good. picture this. zero to 60 in less than three seconds. coming up, capable of doing that. >>laura: and a $500 tip on a 37 crept purchase. it's a gift from someone grateful for what the waiter did for their mother. first we need the forecast from dave osterberg. a lot going on. >>dave: 79 degrees is the current temperature right along the coastline, still the 81 in clearwater and 80 in sarasota. very similar day to yesterday. back to the lower 90s, some spots may touch the mid 90s
7:12 am
afternoons. bump it up to 50% for saturday here's what ed narain believes i'm all about public schools. and i oppose private school vouchers that take funds away from public education. i opposed "stand your ground" gun laws and i'm against rick scott's hate-filled agenda. i strongly support medicaid expansion and i want to increase the minimum wage. democrat ed narain. endorsed by florida's teachers and kathy castor. hey girls
7:15 am
>>dave: and a little extra moisture in the atmosphere. we have a little low cloud cover. the sun will take care of that and in general, i think we finish the same way we did yesterday. i mean, you can already tell as some showers are popping up along the east coast with that east wind, northeast to east wind coming across the state, most of this activity early on is not going to make it across the state. you can see a florida turnpike, it gets eaten up by the stable air and falls apart. once we hit the afternoon, different. you're going to start to see it make its way across the state and then interact with the west coast sea breeze, west of 75. and voila. there we go. showers and thunderstorms take over later this afternoon and the evening. very normal, very typical here in late august. 79 degrees in tampa. it's 80 in sarasota.
7:16 am
there were your 40% chances for the next couple of afternoons. all eyes are on this. this disturbance. we just got word the hurricane center will get a plane out there by 11:00 this morning to investigate this area. when i say investigate, what they're looking for is a low level circulation. they need to find all the quadrants of the wind. they weren't finding the west wind yesterday. we did have a closed low so it can't be classified as tropical depresson until they find that. if it does, we'll let you know either in the fox 13 news at noon or you can check and you can follow along with what the hurricane hunters are doing. nonetheless, even if it doesn't achieve that circulation here in the short-term, the computer models are pretty inis sis sisn
7:17 am
encyst insistent they're going to. they're all over the place and that is because the storm is so disorganized. the one general trend we've been seeing over the past couple of days is with high pressure building into the southeast, it will tend to force whatever this is toward our state. now, it may be nothing more than just a rain storm. it could be obviously something stronger than that if it survives the passage near hispanola, works into the bahamas, it could strengthen there and work to the west. you've got reliable computers taking it to southeast texas. others bringing it in, running it up the east coast of the state. there's a huge range and for me to pick one or the other at this point, kind of irresponsible. we have to keep a close eye on this. if it takes a path to the south into the gulf, obviously impacts on our area would be minimal. south florida would get the
7:18 am
storm into record warm temperatures of the gulf and that's another scary setup in itself. next couple of days will tell the tale what's going to happen with the disturbance and at this point, it is still just a disturbance so scattered afternoon storms for us with a rain chance of about 40%. tomorrow we are once again back around 92 degrees with more late day storms and until the system approaches the state, and we're talking about sunday, monday, tuesday, not even talking about the next three chances are going to stay close to normal. 40% to 50% for friday and for saturday, maybe 60% on sunday. >>vanessa: all right. right now we have a better look at an update on the crash we mentioned before along i-4 westbound in the area of the selmon connector. as i told you before, it involves a vehicle that struck the concrete barrier you see here, and it is blocking a left lane with all the emergency vehicles running quite slow right now heading in towards the interchange. delays we're seeing from that
7:19 am
301, essentially you can see in the red here between mlk and 275 at a 15 minute drive. drivers can take the selmon epressway westbound. new crash in pasco. maybe we'll talk about it later. >>russell: okay. yes. this did not crash in pasco. tesl announced new upgrated tt and farther. company says the sedan can go from -- dave, zero to 60 in 2 1/2 seconds. >>dave: what? >>russell: it's the fastest accelerating car in production. the new batteries will extend the car's range to about 315 miles on a single charge. i don't think that's a cheap car, either. i don't think. i think i saw like not cheap. >>laura: no price? 7:19 now.
7:20 am
a simple act of kindness can go a long way and the act of paying it forward can have a widespread rip he'll if he can. casey simmons was working a busy dinner shift last week when two more customers came in and they said they wanted drinks and casey told them it would be awhile and offered to pay for their drinks. one of the customers wanted a bill just so she could get a tip. casey charged them just 65 cents but then, the same customer asked fustrated, casey obliged and when he came to pick up the check -- when she came, there was a $500 tip waiting. isn't that great? also a note that said on behalf of the sullivan family, thank you for being the person you
7:21 am
three-year anniversary, my mother is thankful. casey said he hopes to meet the family face to face to express his gratitude. >>russell: that's a great story. >>laura: yeah. >>russell: extending your car warranty. coming up, geoff simon tells us if it's a good idea or a waste of money. >>laura: and an appetite for danger. doctors woman's stomach. that does not surprise the people who know him. first charley belcher. >>charley: good day to you. if you don't remember visiting sunken gardens, you probably remember that sign. i love that old sign. stood there on fourth street for many, many, many, many years. beautiful, sunken gardens. still open, still a great destination, classic place to visit in st. petersburg. we're going to take you inside
7:22 am
pretty birds, too. stick around, everybody.
7:25 am
((laura- welcome back to good day tampa bay. the >>laura: welcome back. time is 7:24 and if you're just waking up, there's been a powerful earthquake in central italy. >>russell: the quake had a magnitude of 6.2 and caused a lot of damage. some towns are just left in rubble. rescue workers are digging through it. they found a few survivors. death toll up to 38. dozens more hurt. hit around 3:00. no warning, no >>laura: president obama is pledging more help for the flood victims in louisiana. he said $120 million in federal aid is just the beginning. he went yesterday to tour the damage and told reporters this was no photo op. this was a legitimate visit. he's been getting criticism for staying on vacation while the people in louisiana were suffering. >>russell: dangerous mystery in india. surgeons removed 40 knives from the stomach of a police officer and took him five hours to do it.
7:26 am
long. officer couldn't explain how they got in there. apparently suffers from a psychiatric disorder that requires counselling. swallow? guess so. >>dave: yeah. 79 degrees at tampa international. dew points are a lovely 77 at this hour. north-northeast winds at six miles per hour. you've got the gist. with the winds out of the northeast to east, that will give us another hot day. 90s and mid to late afternoon, showers will work across the state, interact with the west coast sea broez and west of 75, you have a good chance for the big boomers late today. 40% rain chance today, tomorrow, for friday as well. late in the weekend, early next week depends upon the track of this tropical system which we'll try to figure out for you coming up in a few minutes. >>vanessa: meantime, we're
7:27 am
westbound some good news. that crash we just showed you at the last report in the area of the connectors that cleared out. looks like i just have somebody lingering on scene and they are in the emergency shoulder so no big concerns for the travel lanes. we're dealing with delays. i would expect several minutes until everything is back to normal with the travel times. use the alternate selmon or give yourself extra time here. we want to update you as well, the crash we showed you. sky fox here in pinellas full blockage of mlk south of 54th avenue north. the crash now just taking up southbound lanes. northbound has opened so southbound drivers will avoid the area. pasco county dealing with eastbound delays, state road 56 get i don't go to the 75 southbound ramp. there's a crash here and so we don't know about lane blockage. fhp says no but we're seeing notable delays so i would give yourself extra time out the door for that. still seeing these delays as well. we're trying to get to the
7:28 am
jammed basically from south of 52, southbound direction, backed up to lockett. then eastbound 52 between the suncoast and 41, avoid 41 by taking 52. i should say suncoast parkway. disabled bus is clear. delays are completely gone. >>russell: three words a lot of men have trouble saying. a father telling his young son, i love you, in front of a >>laura: and then a 21-year-old man hiding in a 13-year-old girl's closet. alcides segui is on that story. >>reporter: and that man is sitting behind bars here at the pasco county sheriff's office. as you said, according to the sheriff's office, he's accused of performing sexual acts with a 13-year-old girl. how he did it and how he got ahold of her has a lot of parents concerned and we'll talk
7:29 am
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. letterman:"has a y22rline of clothing, now where were these made?" trump: "these were made, i don't know where they're made. but they were made someplace. but they're great. it's ties, shirts, cufflinks, everything sold at macy's and they're doing great.? letterman: ?where are the shirts made?? off-camera voice: ?bangladesh.? letterman: ?bangladesh.? loy people in bangladesh." letterman: ?ties? where are the ties made?" they have to work, too. these are beautiful ties. they are great ties. the ties are made in where? china? off-camera voice: ?china.? letterman: ?the ties are made in china."
7:30 am
7:31 am
z22srz zy6z
7:32 am
(russell- welcome back to good day tampa >>russell: welcome. it is 7:32. a mother finds a stranger hiding in her daughter's he's 21. the daughter is 13. >>laura: what the mother did not know, though, was that he was no stranger to the girl. alcides segui is in pasco county now to tell us how they met. it's a disturbing story. good morning. >>reporter: good morning to you. social media is how they met. it is absolutely scary. if you're not familiar with an app by the name of snap chat, you've got to watch this report. we'll talk about that in a second. but first, i have to show you
7:33 am
he's 21 years old. his name is christopher rogue. he's facing charges of lewd and lascivious battery, he was actually arrested after deputies say he was found hiding in the closet of this 13-year-old pasco county girl. according to his arrest report, he was actually found by the girl's mother. detectives say he travelled from new york to meet her and then engage in sexual acts in her own bedroom. when deputies searched his phone, they say they found a nude of the young teenager. they exchanged photos via text messages and mobile app by the name of snap chat. it's a popular app used among young people. snap chat allows users to capture and send photos that self destruct after a certain amount of time. when someone sends a message, they get to decide how long it will live on the device before it goes away.
7:34 am
after that, it's history. snap chat is popular because you can take wacky pictures and photos and videos but it's different from facebook and twitter because unless you take a screen shot, the pictures and video just simply going away after a certain amount of time. the motivation of snap chat is to provide more privacy than facebook and other social net networks. unfortunately, there's reports of it being used for sexting. that's pictures of themselves or someone else and then sends it to someone else as well. it's interesting because you get the social media apps that are constantly popping up or they're always making changes and i just spoke with charley belcher a short time ago. he was telling me that facebook launched something in messages and it's called secret conversations so basically a message mode that erases and doesn't back up. again, it's just another way that teens can communicate
7:35 am
short amount of time, that text message, picture, is completely deleted from the internet world. as parents, we have to be very, very vigilant, know what is going on and everything that's on our cell phones and your kids' cell phones as well because again, it's at your finger tip. you can easily download it. snap chat is a great media app, great app to use but it's also very dangerous for young teens not knowing exactly how to use it the right way. back to you. >>laura: you mother knowing what was going on all along and it's important to talk to your kids. you can't take them away from the world around them, you know? >>reporter: you cannot. the kids are going to do it whether or not you want them to or not, but at least you can be engaged in the conversation, teach them how to use it the right way. >>laura: thank you. >>russell: it's 7:35 right now. we have some sad news to report. we're getting word that monsignor lawrence higgins died. the st. lawrence catholic church
7:36 am
he passed way early this morning at his rectory home. he was founder of the church and served as pastor there from 1958 until 2007. that's the longest tenure of any priest in the st. pete diocese. now, when he -- listen to this. i did not know this story. when he first got to tampa, archbishop hurly gave him 20 acres of cow pasture along with the mandate, build a parrish and boy, did he. over the years, monsignor played a role catholic parrishs in tampa. mon seer or higgins was 87 years old and he could tell a story like nobody's business. his funeral is expected to be very large and details of that are still being made. >>laura: it is 7:36 now. outrage over another alleged rape case involving students. walter allen is here with that story. >>walter: good morning to you. this is in massachusetts. 18-year-old david becker is
7:37 am
count of indecent assault. becker is a former high school star athlete in three different sports. prosecutors accuse him of sexually assaulting two 18-year-old girls while they were unconscious at a party. girls fell asleep and woke up to find becker assaulting them. police say he admits it telling them he thought it was okay because they didn't stop him. prosecutors were seeking two years in prison. judge gave the athlete two years of probation. his lawyer says, quote, we all make 19 years old and we shouldn't be branded for life with a felony offense. putting the kid in life for two years would have destroyed his life. there's a lot of ang other social media. one person wrote, this makes me want to scream. how are there so many judges that think rape isn't a big deal? let's introduce yet another rapist to the world. people have learned little from brock turner. more raping of drunk girls, more
7:38 am
brock turner was given a six month sentence for assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. the judge said turner's youth and lack of a criminal record led to the lenient sentence. because of that case, stanford now has new rules regarding alcohol at undergraduate parties. beer and wine, those are still okay. a lot of students don't like the new policy. it's not something that is making us feel safer. >> with this new policy, i might be less likely to go out and like seek help in a situation. >> it's going to encourage students to aggressively drink in private rooms instead of publicly in parties which presents, i think, potentially increased danger of sexual assault. >>walter: anyone caught violating the new rules will have to move on campus.
7:39 am
becker. he was planning to attend the university of dayton in ohio. that school says he's no longer welcome. >>russell: all right. take a look at this. average car repair bill in florida can be as low as $1200 when using after market parts or as high as $1600 when using the parts from the manufacturer and that bill includes an average cost of $940 for the labor. that's why it's real nice to have a warranty that pays for your repairs. fox 13 money adviser geoff simon is her one of those extended warranties when the car warranty, the new car warranty runs out is worth it. i got one of these. and i'm telling you, i've had my car a long time and it's come in handy. what do you think? >> i'm glad to hear that. in some cases it's a great thing if you use it but believe it or not, 55% of the people who get car warranties don't ever use
7:40 am
them are new car buyers when they buy the car and the car already has a manufacturer's warranty. so you're getting extended warranty on top of the manufacturer's warranty. you're paying for something you don't need but there's a lot of pressure at the time you buy the car to do that, and they tell you it's all being rolled into your auto finance fee. you're paying interest on a policy that for at least the first few years you don't >>russell: you're telling me i spent money i didn't need to? >> sometimes a used car extended warranty makes a lot of sense but it depends on whether you use it or not. as i said, 55% of people who buy extended warranties don't use them and the average repair cost can be less than the cost of the warranty. it depends how much you pay. what it does do, it gives you peace of mind that if something goes wrong, if you get the bumper to bumper coverage, you
7:41 am
all of the fine print of that contract. that's a big if. >>russell: that's the thing i learned along the way and i bought my extended warranty as my warranty was running out. so that's what i did. but you're right. i mean, there re things you have to do in order to get repairs on that car. you need to let them know in advance and they only let certain places do it, right? >> that's exactly right. if you don't go sometimes to the dealer that if you look at the map, a national survey, here is a national survey. average cost is $1200 per repair. the average repair cost, that's the contract, $1200. average repair is 840 which means if you just paid for the repair, you would have saved about $360. the amazing thing about this, and it should tell you a lot. there's a 50% markup on that
7:42 am
the dealer or sales person. that should show you exactly how the numbers work because they wouldn't be getting 50% profit if they were giving you the full value of that contract. it wouldn't be a good business idea for them if they were counting on you not needing all of that coverage to cover the repairs. so the numbers really tell you that apparents are great if you really need them but in most cases, most people don't need them to the extent paying the premium or in the case of 55% of people buy them never even use them. >>russell: i thought they just loved me sxpted -- loved me and wanted me to get it. >> they do love you after the 16% commission. >>russell: good to see you. thank you. hey, dave. >>dave: 7:42. in sports chris archer just got closer to doing what no other
7:43 am
years. it's not a good one, either. lose 20 games. archer lost to the red sox last night at home 2-1. you can't say he didn't pitch a great game. his record is 7-17. last 20 game loser in the major leagues was mitch moroff of the tigers in 2003. the rays are now 8-19 in one run games. that's the worst in the tonight. we now know when tim tebow will conduct his workout for major league baseball teams. it will be next tuesday in los angeles. more than 20 major league teams are sending scouts to see what he can do. that includes the rays. if they choose to sign tebow, he might play for the snow crabs. football became his priority after high school.
7:44 am
my home town team lost in elimination game at the little league world series. warwick, rhode island lost to johnston, iowa 3-2. i'm watching the game. warwick had a one run lead entering the bottom of the sixth. here is the problem, russell. their pitcher reached the max pitches you can do in little league so they had to take him out. they had no choice but to put another pitcher in. that consecutive hits to lose the game. i'll not saying that pitcher lost the game for them but gosh, when the number one pitcher has 11 strikeouts and pitch count forced him out of the game, that doesn't help. in the long run, it's good for their arms. they made it there. they should be proud. i'm proud. our city, our state is proud. >>russell: good. very nice. and on a related subject, sad, when you get to a little league game, there's the dad yelling at his kid.
7:45 am
exchange between a father and son at the little league world series. isaiah jenson was pitching for oregon. he walks a batter in the fifth. his dad, also the coach, came out of the dugout. not to scold him but to encourage him. listen. >> here comes dad for a conference. >> i just came out to tell you how much i love you as a dad and a player, okay? you're doing awesome out here. one more hitter. this is your last you understand? come right out. cheer up. have some fun. come right after him. okay? let's go. >> how good is that, tim? >> as good as it gets. >> goose bumps. >>russell: yeah. that's pretty neat. >>laura: emotional a little bit. >>russell: i know. >>laura: getting to know the world of baseball a little bit, i think it's a standard for coaches to come up and relieve their pitchers, right? just take the pressure off, right, dave?
7:46 am
be played at every television station around the world for every father that has a kid in little league. >>laura: lighten up. >>russell: have some fun. >>laura: roll with it. >>dave: have fun and i love ya. >>russell: at the little league world series. >>laura: take a minute and breathe it in, son. >>dave: look at that bright sunshine. that sun just popped out there. we do have again a disturbance in the tropics we're watching.
7:47 am
i'm not jumping through hoops for a sale. a limited time only? i'll tell you whose time is limited. coupons, really? i'm still looking for their socks. seriously, you want me to hurry? oh sure, let me just drop everything for your one day sale. at t.j.maxx, marshalls and homegoods, we've always offered amazing prices
7:48 am
7:49 am
