6:00 pm
not a good idea to be taking a walk along the bay front in the next 10 to 15 minutes with very heavy rain coming your way from the east. so we'll jump ahead and we'll show you what's happening as far as tie tower goes, and the heaviest rain with winds between 40 and 50 is right over pinellas county, and that continues to sweep to the north and north east. it's all kind of rotating around the center of hermine, which is out in the gulf of going fast, so the weather may o from good to bad in a few minutes. >> hudson, clearwater, largo, pinellas park, st. pete. if you're watching us in feather sound and northeast st. pete, that weather is heading your way and also by 275, it extends all the way down through holmes beah
6:01 pm
some rain down by sarasota. i want to bring your attention - we talked about these strong winds. this caught my attention a few minutes ago. this is an emergency action message that requested -- a civl emergency message. this is transmitted at the request of the florida emergency management agency. citrus county, dangerous coastal flooding possible. monitor media county could be as high as 4 to 8 feet later on tonight as hurricane hermine passes west of them, but they're obviously closer to the center. the satellite presentation continues to improve with the developing eye, and here's some wind gusts. as i said, 41 in st. pete, 35 in 23 in tampa, 20 in brandon. on average between 40 and 50, which is by definition tropical
6:02 pm
there's a satellite radar composite. you can see the storm spinning just south of apalachicola as a down one. it looks like if you look at the clouds and we had discussions about this last night, you see the clouds moving to the east. you may think the hurricane is going the other way. it is not. it is moving north-northeast, ad that we have a tornado watch in effect until 11:00 tonight. and that will continue to be additional tornado warnings issued tonight. are 75. north north-northeast. and this could move to an 80 or 85-mile an hour hurricane. mike is with me and we've been doing tag team weather all afternoon long and, mike, this s really the first hurricane that we have seen make landfall in or state since wilma back in 2005. >> right. and it continues to intensify really or at least maintain its
6:03 pm
just perhaps east of tallahassee into and suwannee river, on our entire viewing area under a tropical storm warning. >> we had wind gusts in sarasota at srq about 48 miles per hour this afternoon and some of these bands are doing 45 or 50-mile an hour winds so for that reason they put out the tornado -- the tropical storm warning all the way down to will stay in effect for probably at least another six or 12 hour. here's the situation that we're concerned about. i mean, some of this is not our viewing area, but citrus county is, so they may have a significant flooding situation later tonight at the time of hih tide. tides running probably as much s 6 to 8 feet above normal. that's a lot. that reminds me of the no name storm that produced significant storm surge flooding along the
6:04 pm
west coast, but 6 to 8 is a stom surge we have not seen in many many years. that won't be tampa bay. it's not going to be a tampa bay 6 to 8. we'll do maybe 2 to 4, 1 to 3 ad around the bend you're talking 0 to 12. and a lot of you watching right now remember certainly the no name storm. >> and the crystal river area ae included in the 6 to 8-foot range. and as you get towards levy county as well. significant the further north yu get and wave heights have alreay been huge today. we have not found the highest wave. i'm sure there's 25 to 30 away from that and then -- look -- whoa. look at that. 76-mile an hour wind at a boey south of apalachicola. that is significant.
6:05 pm
apalachicola. 76 sustained and again, you have to figure that boey is probably not finding the exact strongest wind so i would not be surprised surprised -- it may even intensify the hurricane. based on that report. >> we've seen it on radar kind f getting its act together. so as that continues to happen over the next four or 56 hours. we may still s reports even higher than that. and i wouldn't be surprised if the national hurricane center looks at that and up dates. >> 30 west west of fort myers ad 38 from that buoy out by the lop current. these are the ones you want to pay attention to. crystal river, 352, that's going to be -- 341 in the morning, so for our viewers that are watchig us and are concerned about
6:06 pm
bayport, your high tide tomorrow morning is like 3:00 to 4:00 a.. and at that time with the hurricane probably on land we'll still have enough wind southwest wind to cause some significant flooding. that's the next high tide cycle, that's going to be a big proble, even around tampa bay there will be some minor flooding, 1 to 3 around 330 in the morning on friday and the model still predicting wind gusts as high as 78 miles per hour in tallahasse. this is at 7:00 a.m. on friday. that's a model verify, but it's an idea of what we're expecting around the big bend. >> and still showing wind gusts around tier tropical force storm winds into tonight and at least the as a result of the day tomorrow. so we're going to see these kins of bands rotating through and that's when you pick up some of the gustier winds that we've got going through with the bands. >> tomorrow may not be much of a picnic, because tomorrow we're going to be in a spot that times
6:07 pm
so do not expect -- people alwas say, oh, the day after a storm goes by, it's sunny and beautiful. it's not going to be like that tomorrow. we could sit in kind of a feeder band and may have a couple of hours at least of some tropical rains and some wind too. that's coming up tomorrow. i will say by the weekend the weather will finall be improving. at least a little bit, and we cn say good-bye, see you later to hermine. go. get out. we'll talk more about that and have more radar views and the few minutes. >> gentlemen, thanks. if you haven't already as well, make sure you download our skytower app. it's really a great resource for the latest recent weather information of the you'll get te updates too when there's lightning in your area or a warning. so check it out if you don't hae it. take a look at clearwater beacho and second. you can see the water getting deeper by the minute. on the beach the surf was high and there were a few surfers
6:08 pm
waves. lifeguards say most surfers know what they're doing and those surfers aren't the people they'e worried about. >> we're concerned with the people that over estimate their ability, put themselves in dangerous situations and aren't aware of their surroundings and get themselves into some dangerous places. >> they say the high tides and the rain not only soaked the sad but they can also cause problems for buildings along the beach. so far, though, so good, no damage that we know of and we're watching it very closely. this should b either. high winds usually close the sky way bridge and it was closed about noon today for the same reason. it's still closed, and we'll let you know when it reopens. >> yeah, we know bayshore always closes. it's been closed in both directions. if you live in and drive in souh tampa, they're asking you to avoid bayshore and find another route altogether. >> over the last couple of days
6:09 pm
might imagine in pasco. fox13 evan is out there with the very latest. >> evan? >> well, kelly, this rain really has started picking up here in just the last few minutes. it's much harder than it's been all afternoon and that is not good news for the residents here on ironbark drive. we do have some new information from what -- when we last saw yu at 5:00. a county commissioner just got here and said they are trying right now to lay a pipe that would go from this retention pod about a quarter mile of a way to a n has a pond that is basically dr, that is not filled with any water. their hope is to get this water from there -- from here to there very quickly because of very fat this water is filling up here on irondark. this water here is -- it's obviously on to the street it's only about 10 to 12 feet from te homes that you see here on the other side of irondark from whee i am standing. now down the street there you
6:10 pm
some water elsewhere into the drainage system, so it's a very intense situation for the neighbors who are here on ironbark. they're very concerned as you cn here. >> every year multiple times a year. we live with the sandbags and, you know, my next door neighbors are in canada on vacation. it's hard. we went to the keys the last tie this happened. you can't getaway from it. you're constantly worried about wh y to. >> i'm proposing we take a pipe -- put a pump in place here instead of doing the water truck pump we're doing right now. run that pump all the way to the end and start filling that pond up which can take hundreds and hundreds of thousands of gallons of water. >> and so that's the commissioner, you saw him just there. he is not exactly sure when they can get that pipe into this retention pond here. kelly, he's hoping for that in the next couple of hours. it's going to be tense here on
6:11 pm
and then he says the goal is to have a permanent solution dug here, an actual pipe that would help stop this from happening to the residents every time it rais on ironbark. >> you're about to be hit with some heavy heavy downpours. stay safe and we'll get back in touch. >> water treatment plans all ovr the bay area are at max capacit. we have talked about this for a long time. now it's really in the spotlight here. haley hinds is in lar look at what it means there. >> this manhole cover has been overflowing since yesterday. that is raw sewage spewing there into the grass. the city of largo is working right now to control some of the spillover throughout the city, but they are not the only area dealing with this kind of problem. >> when it rains, and i mean really rains in florida, what goes down tends to come up. >> i've been with largo for eigt years, this is the worst i've seen it at this treatment plant. >> largo was pounded with
6:12 pm
hours, pushing the sewage system over capacity and pushing what s in there elsewhere. >> that's raw sewage, you don't want to have kids playing in it. stay away from that completely. >> the water that does it make t to the wastewater treatment plat is being pumped back out at treated evan -- effluent. >> we've >> this is not raw sewage like a lot of people would think. >> largo isn't alone in the stom water struggle. >> they say 90% is expected to e rain or storm water. and in sarasota county, the wastewater are at full capacity. >> we have crews out operating and maintaining, repairing as needed. 24 hours per day and we'll continue to do that through the duration of the storm. >> as crews work around the clok
6:13 pm
your help. officials are asking people to save water, cut back on washing clothes or dishes. take shorter showers and if at all possible limit the number of times you flush the toilet. one final word advice. flood waters is just another wod for bacteria water. don't swim. >> even though it looks like fu, it's not a good idea. we try to protect, you know, health, environment and people's lives. i mean, that's our -- that's wht we're trying to do is protect that. >> we learned that marshall street wastewater treatment plant that is experienced a failure. the system is backed up and wastewater is overflowing from several man holes there. they say the city is working to get some rental pumps to buy pas those that are not working. we'll keep you posted on that situation. as for largo help is on the way. three major construction projecs are underway all working to alleviate some of these rainwater, storm water and sewer issues that they've experienced. that will be a long-term solution, all of those projects are expected to be completed by next fall.
6:14 pm
hinds, fox 13 news. >> all right, haley, thanks very much. we had a lot of crews getting really wet for folks today working hard. we want to update you on the school situation as well. we have a number of counties canceling school tomorrow. we have hillsborough, pinellas, citrus pasco and hernando all closed tomorrow. >> and hurricane hermine is making its way toward the panhandle tonight as paul has been taking us through this. as you can see there's quite a bit of rain with this storm, and it's coming a shore in our area ri we'll go back to paul for an update in a couple of minutes, o
6:15 pm
hillary clinton: i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. bob kidder, owner, new england shirt company: this factory has been here since eighteen eighty-three. we have over sixty people here making shirts labled made in america. but donald trump's brand of shirts come from china, his suits from mexico, his coats from india. trump's products
6:16 pm
you know donald trump says he'll make america great again while
6:17 pm
forecast with fox 13 chief meteorologist paul dellegatto. >> we have a wind of 62 miles an hour as it pinellas county. 62 confirmed in st. peter's -- st. petersburg. other views around pinellas that's the heavy bands of rain s they continue to slide to the east. also the brookdale bayshore cam. this is heavy weather heading into hillsborough county and as was the case in pin pinellas
6:18 pm
winds between 55 and 60. obviously the advice to you in hillsborough is the same that my advice was in pinellas. not a good time to be on the road. let this band go by. tampa cam is looking down kennedy. not much traffic. that's good. in the distance is the bay and n the distance is dark clouds and heavy rain. i mean, the sun doesn't set for another hour and a half and look how dark it is, even at 6:17 in the afternoon. just updated the satellite loop and the presentation of hermine, you know, still getting better organized and certainly the development of an eye feature south of apalachicola and we are on the bad side. this is the nasty side of any tropical storms and when storms intensify obviously the wind field kind of spreads out. the impacts increase and for a count 1 hurricane this is pretty large. this is about one and a half or -- one and a half times the
6:19 pm
here's the satellite radar presentation of the storm headig up towards the big bend. it's going to be critical in tallahassee, and i think the storm will stay a little bit eat of downtown tallahassee, and that's a big deal. because even 10 miles makes a bg difference. they'll get some bad weather, bt if the storm stays east of them that would keep the strongest winds east of downtown tallahassee and you start moving east, tal rural, so that could be a good thing and then the storms -- all the cloud elements go this way. a lot of you last night were getting concerned that the storm is turning to the right. you can't look at infrared imagery and get a sense where te storm is all you're looking at s cloud temperatures and upper level winds blowing the clouds o the east. one band of rain going through now, there's another one back here, but the good news is there will be a break and that break
6:20 pm
county, so there will be a break don't. zoom in. this is back at 5:40 and i will stop it at 6:19, so from downton st. pete and right over the bridges, can you imagine being n the howard frankland now? winds 45 to 55 with blinding ran that's not a good time. then all the way up to new port richey, the good news is it's narrow and moving areas of rain new port richey ad western sections of hernando and that is also slotting northeast. i don't think the -- usually the solid line here will not produce a tornado. it's kind of like the individual cells away from the lines that produce tornadoes. it's gone through anna maria wih some strong winds. bradenton too, so we'll continue to watch it. it's just about to downtown tampa, and then bradenton, sarasota, moderate to heavy rai. there is a break behind it and s
6:21 pm
away our weather will slowly improve, but for tomorrow, look -- our radar is so strong that we can see what is the eye all the way back here. so you talk about the most powerful radar. we can see this eye feature way back here. i mean, that's pretty impressive for skytower and that will continue to move north and northeast generally up towards tallahassee and then tomorrow we'll probably get stuck in at least one or two of these bands on the south side, so i don't think tomorrow is the picnic either with more tropical showes and thunder showers and probably the right idea, the schools that canceled tomorrow, even though it's not going to rain all day, there's going to be some wind ad there's going to be a lot of heavy rain coming in from the gulf, so i still can't argue wih that decision. how often do you see this on a weather map here?
6:22 pm
that happened a few minutes ago that's confirmed in st. pete. gusting to 38 in clearwater. 23 in tampa, but soon there will be gusts higher than that. 18 in bradenton. 30 in sarasota. that's incredible to see gusts 2 in st. pete. tornado watch up for the northen half of our viewing area. now, all in red all the way up around the big bend area, hermie is 28.5, 85 west, top winds september five. pressu it will accessorial to the northeast. it's kind of interesting, this s the past track of hermine. the forecasting for the past several days has been very good, still struggling with intensity forecast. we've made that clear many time. i know for a fact back monday ad tuesday how we did not expect major intensification in the northern gulf of mexico. obviously it did intensify so
6:23 pm
say we don't do a good job of predicting intensity. it's too complicated. the models don't get it yet. it's the interaction between the water and the atmosphere. it's just tough. it's a tough science and it's tough to get it right all the time. the track has been very good. now look at this. talk about some forecasting issues. look at this. look at that. can you see that? so what are we going to forecast here? i mean, you talk about the ultimate spaghetti model. look at why it's doing that is the upper level winds over new england ths weekend, a couple of high pressure systems, kind of one west, one north and then you jut do a loop-de-loop-de-loop. >> that's during a labor day weekend. tropical storm warnings up. suwannee river to englewood in yellow for the time asking now we've got a problem up in citrus
6:24 pm
me in citrus county this has ben well advertised. you'll have a lot more storm surge flooding for you than we will around tampa bay so pay attention to local messages from your county, because there's going to be some high water latr tonight. i'm talking like 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. with a strong southwet wind. you're looking at blue. blue. blue. 6 to 8 feet. the potential and then around te big bend here you've got some of this red, which is 12 above normal. you know, a lot of it is local geography. you don't need a category 3 hurricane to cause flooding. katrina cat 3 produced cat 5 storm surge flooding. this is a cat 5 that could produce cat 3 flooding. it's the topography and the shallow water that has a lot to do with the storm surge floodin, not necessarily how much winds
6:25 pm
it's a lot more than that. >> futurecast tomorrow has bands over us. this is 9:00 a.m., and then during the day, you know, one of these big feeder bands for a tie could be over us, so again it's not going to rain all day, but some gusty tropical showers are likely tonight. areas of rain and storms, again not raining all night long. there will be breaks near 80. tomorrow, kind of tropical, breezy, showers and thunder showers, 84, even saturday is kind of so showers and storms and 86 and then the 7-day forecast, finally next week we get back into some normal stuff. normal for us is low 90s for highs and 70s for lows. thanks oh yea, everything is digital now-a-days. this thing never leaves my side. that is why i signed up for publix digital coupons. and i got the paper ones too. so retro... that's how i save at publix. how 'bout you?
6:26 pm
6:28 pm
i just go to publix, find the signs with the deals and save. when you add it all up... it's a lot. that's how i save at publix. how 'bout you? publix. where shopping is a pleasure. d >> well, developing tonight here at 6:00, a high speed chase ends in gunfire in pasco county. guess what, it's all caught camera. it happened last friday, right around rush hour. drivers along u.s. 19 began calling 911 after they saw three cars speeding through the area around embassy boulevard shootig at one another. eventually the shootout ends ina neighborhood and now deputies ae trying to figure out the identities of all the drivers involved. >> there's a lot of traffic on u.s. 19 and all of those roadwas that are involved, so we're obviously very concerned about these bullets traveling elsewhee
6:29 pm
involved. that's why it's so important tht we identify who is involved in the incident trying to get to te bottom of it. >> amazingly nobody was injured in the road rage shootout. crime stoppers is offering a $3,000 reward to anybody that cn give investigators any kind of information that leads to an arrest. >> so straight ahead here tonigt at 6:30. a spectacular site at the cape today. >> unfortunately not one scientists wanted to see it. of course not. a spacex rocket sitting on a it exploded. we'll tell you about what happened coming up. >> we're also keeping a very close on skytower radar. quite active right now. you can see all the rain associated with hurricane hermine. paul it back with us still watching this very strong line come through the bay area right now. we'll also go back to the
6:30 pm
6:31 pm
6:32 pm
hurricane hermine is just hours away from maki there is >> so hurricane hermine just hours away from making landfall and there is some heavy weather paul is joining us with another look at the radar. hey, paul. >> 62 miles an hour in st. pete. now the rain has moved into hillsborough. the good news is some of the ran has gone weakening has it moves inland. here's a look outside as you lok west down kennedy. thankfully not a lot of traffic so people are paying attention. we certainly appreciate you paying attention.% no reason to be on the roads
6:33 pm
central hillsborough, with a pretty good band of rain that's the view of the brookdale cam just west of the camera perspective and the john hopkins cam is looking to the east at some rain. it is still raining right now in downtown st. pete. the band is moving out over the bay and it will continue to move apidly northeast, and the weather is improving in a sense that, you know, you're seeing nt as much heavy rain in the clearwater beach cams, there is some improvement. the good news is the storm continueso rotate and spin, there are breaks in these bands, tuatert'nk we're not looking ata ra all night. one band is going by now. there's a break on the bacide. there's another band. i mean, this radar, satellite perspective is incredible. mike is with me. mike bennett and we're tracking this band. the good news is as the line
6:34 pm
considerably, and that's certainly a nice aspect of whats happening right now. >> it's weakened as it's come through, gut still some gusty winds on the north side of it. probably in the next 10 to 15 minutes and even through south tampa getting heavier downpours as well. you can see out in the gulf, there are breaks, but there's another band offshore. that could eventually spin and impact our northern counties later on tonight. view on that. you can see one line here coming through there, and then there's another one here, but in the middle there are breaks, and thn as the storm begins to move awa, i think you start seeing more breaks in between the rain band. the forecasting problem for latr tonight and tomorrow is will we get stuck in one of those feeder bands. i tell you the models do indicae that's going to happen. the european model is saying we'll be stuck in one of those
6:35 pm
tomorrow. that's not good. winds can still gust 40 to 45 in some of the bands. let's jump ahead and show you te wind gusts. we did have 62 in st. pete. now the latest wind gust is 38. 38 in clearwater. 23 in tampa and 21 in brandon. that's the latest position of hermine, which is going to be moving rapidly northeast. the warnings are still out. and we've been harping on this tonight with the impacts. we'll fly down and show you that there will be additional rainfall. this is some model data models don't do a really good job with -- i think overall with how some tropical setups are, but it gives you an idea there could be a couple more inches. and then some of the wind speeds tomorrow will be diminishing to 25 to 30. i think that makes sense. the most important map here is the storm surge and it's really what you are seeing in the left
6:36 pm
we're really concerned about the setup in citrus county where water levels would be 4 to 8 fet above normal. there are a lot of homes up there. a lot of you have ties to citrus county. a lot of folks have vacation homes. i know a lot of viewers up here, so we have to be concerned about some water in some homes up in citrus county. that timing should be like 1:00 a.m. to -- >> 1:00 to 5:00 because the whoe cycle. the thing sits not just if you'e up there, you of inner tidal areas. we're talking about water even above the innertidal zones. 4 to 6 feet is on the low end as you head towards northern citrus county and beyond that tar yankee town, that area you're talking even above 6 to 8 feet. i urge you pay attention to your local emergency management offie
6:37 pm
crannies. if you have to leave your home. just leaf. you don't want water in your hoe at 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning and call for help, because no oe wants to rescue you at 3:00 in the morning. a friend of mine just posted or sent me a picture from mccray's boat dock. it's already under water badly. everybody needs to pay attention and like be on the extreme side of caution. just a reminder to make sure you download our skytower radar app, a very good app. radar views, forecasts, links to my fox hurricane, and lots of information, and it alerts you constantly if there's something serious going on. as paul did mention, hermine is headed for the panhandle, and fx is in apalachicola. what's it like out there right
6:38 pm
ashore? >> well, kelly, i can tell you that we are dealing with intense wind and rain out here. in fact, take a look at the bay. right behind me here you can see just those waves and they are just getting higher and higher and crashing up against the dock here, but let me tell you that's not stopping some people from coming out here and taking pictures and checking it out for themselves. we are here in downtown apalachicola, and a lot of businesses here have closed for the day. they have the plywood up on ther their doors and as we made our way around the county today that's what we saw as well with people who had homes near the water here. they were just boarding them up and making sure their patio furniture was inside or laying there on its side. franklin county is under a mandatory evacuation forbear yes islands. we did see some people that lef, but then there were others that decided to stay and they were going to ride out the storm.
6:39 pm
it's been more than 10 years before a hurricane has hit this area. so a lot of people here were telling me that even though it's been a long time, they are storm pros, so they have plans in plae and preparations and were ready for this storm to make its way through here. according to the franklin county emergency management center, there are some roads that are flooding here, so they have -- they have closed some of the roads in this area already and the bridges, they said they were going to winds hit. 25 miles per hour. we do have a wind monitor out here with us and i tested it a little while ago and we saw max winds of about 33 miles per hou. so those bridges are either closed and if not, they will be shortly, because again we are dealing with winds out here next excess of 25 miles per hour. >> that's the very latest here n apalachicola. we'll send it back to you, kell. >> stay safe out there. paul says it's strengthening by the minute.
6:40 pm
>> how many times do we say it? don't drive-thru water unless yu know how deep it is. some people had to find out the hard way. >> we're here at mlk drive just west of pinellas avenue where some flooding on this intersection here has caused% major problems for drivers. we've counted at least three cas that have driven through this ad stalled because water has gotten into their engines. car after car we've heeding the advice of the warnings that say high water and turning around, but several othr cars going through here and getting stuck. two of those were just towed out of this area, but altogether three cars at least since we've been here about an ?houror two that have been stuck because water has gone into their engine as they've made their way throuh this. i talked to one of those drivers who said it just looked like he was able to pass through and he
6:41 pm
it was. ta lke aisteto him. >> i ended up getting water inside of my engine and my car wouldn't start. so i had to push it over here ad it happened to that guy over there. not worth it. don't try. stay inside. wait it out. >> and again there are several other areas toughout tarpon springs that are closed or have advisory signs warning drivers f high water, and to not trudge through them with their car damaged. it's very expensive and not something you want to be dealing with when you could just be avoiding all this and staying at home. in tarpon springs, evan lambert. >> here's the situation with public schools for tomorrow. a number of counties decided to cancel school tomorrow because f the storm and we have this other high tide coming in in the morning. they are hillsborough, pinellas,
6:42 pm
one of the company's rockets destroyed at its cape canaveral launch site just days ahead of a scheduled launch. as fox's phil keating they're still trying to figure out what caused the explosion. >> that rocket, carrying the amos6 communication satellite meant to provide facebook's free internet program to sub africa. it follows another launch in june 2015. the company react to go this latest incident in a statement reading, quote, spacex can confirm that in preparation for today's static fire there was an anomaly on the pad resulting in the loss of the vehicle and its pay load. per standard procedure the pad was clear, and there were no injuries. spacex is tasked with bringing supplies to the international space station as well following
6:43 pm
program. coincidentally two astronauts were carrying out a space walk outside the space station at the time of the blast. they were not immediately made aware of the explosion. turnly nasa relies on russia's help to send its astronauts to space and the next station crew is currently prepping for an upcoming expedition. two russians and one american ae set to blast off on board a rocket later this month. >> it's a very small vehicle, so that's a little more challenging than we had in the shuttle. team over here. >> the big concern here for nasa is that late next year, early 2018 it's planning to launch its astronauts on the spacex dragon crew capsule which is stacked on top of one of these rockets. in miami, fox news. >> we have another look at skytower radar. we're keeping an eye on all that was rain and the next band of weather that is heading towards the tampa bay area. paul will join us back with an
6:44 pm
with an update on this hurricane
6:45 pm
6:46 pm
