8:17 am
today. it's 79 in venice. low to mid-70s from lakeland to lake placid out the door this morning. so while we are dry, the moisture that has been in place is still there. more of it will be settling in near a boundary today. the further south you live near the coast the lower amount of rain you will see. the further north you live inland the better rain chance you will be seeing. because we are so saturated, if you get under a downpour can't rule out temporary flooding returning. 50% rain chance north of tampa including in a flood-prone area in western pasco. 40% in tampa. to sarasota 30% coverage. i want to point out the river where kellie is at. we are still in a major flood stage. the current level at 24.72 feet. but the river crested last night at 25 feet. while this is slowly dropping an inch per hour we won't fall below flood stage until wednesday morning. so gradual improvements over
8:18 am
big improvements by midworkweek. let's talk about hermine. it is still going. it's mo longer tropical but it might as well be. look at the circulation and the moisture offshore. the flow around it to bring battering storm surge and the threat for big-time beach erosion in the next couple of days. at least models we are in line with heavy rain mainly staying offshore. as of 8:00 a.m. they are staying it's still post-tropical with 50-mile-per-hour winds. slowing down after the region until thursday or friday. so a couple of days with big-time wave heights. wave heights this morning are upward of 12 feet off the jersey shore. future cast for us today, here is the clock. here is lunchtime. by 2:00, scattered storms developing. heaviest east of i-75. in the evening tonight they wane inland. monday for labor day, check the pattern change. wind arrows are more easterly. afternoon and evening storms are building west.

8:24 am
him. >> dear father mike be only for jesus through mary, be a holy priest. god bless you, mother teresa. >> reporter: mannion worked with mother teresa in calcutta and would maybe see her half a dozen times a year and would often take pictures of mother meeting her many admirers. >> in washington, many, many people would line up by the hundreds to meet mother. >> reporter: his favorite, this imagine call moment of mother teresa and a little baby at the gift of peace house i w the framed photo now hangs in his office for all to see. >> it brought out the very, very best smile of mother. the eyes say it all. people would sometimes look at mother's picture, not having known her and say look at the wrinkles. the people that met her never noticed the wrinkles. they only ? -- only noticed the smile and te eyes. >> reporter: december 5, 1997, mother teresa died at

8:26 am
and closed her eyes. she was widely known as the saint of calcutta for her devotion to the sick and poor and the hungry. her work earned her a nobel peace prize in 1979. today she officially became saint teresa of calcutta. still ahead on "good day tampa bay" -- donald trump has been delivering a message of unity in the black community. we'll talk to fox's chris wallace about it after the break. >> lindsay: 8:26. most of us staying dry this morning. dry hours to early afternoon. so now is your chance to do boating. you missed it. wave height in check at two feet or less. johns hopkins children hospital cam, that is sunshine. skytower radar showing mid-to-upper 70s. the rain is offshore and it will start in the coastal counties north of the bay and give way to a 40 to a 50% chance of inland storms. how about tuesday, wednesday, thursday? lower rain chances. we need it. i'll talk more about it after

8:30 am
presidential debate moderators. it fits you well. you are such a -- you are so great at what you do. >> thank you. >> alcides: i have to ask you. what do you plan to ask the candidates? give us a preview of what you plan to ask. >> i'm not going to tell you. i suspect if i did the two candidates would hear. frankly, i don't know. i'm doing the final debate on october 19. less than three weeks before the election. at this point you have no idea. first, you have to watch the they talk about there. see what is going on in the campaigns what happened is going on in the world. so i'll get into it. but not for a while. >> alcides: you know, we saw donald trump appealing to black voters this weekend in detroit. is there any chance he is going to pick up his numbers in that group? >> well, we'll get to talk at the top of the hour with ben carson one of his rivals in the primaries, now one of his top advisers and who escorted
8:31 am
grew up. we'll talk to him about exactly that. can trump make in-roads with the african-american community? we'll talk to congressman meeks who is a clinton supporter who i suspect will be skeptical about that. >> alcides: i assume you will ask him about her private e-mail servers and the revolution that came out recently. it seems every time there is something that comes out with the private e-mail server it doesn't take long before it falls flat. >> well, we'll be talking about that. i think it has hurt clinton in the polling. no question. this race tightened up in the last weeks. trump has generally speaking been a more disciplined candidate. in addition there is a steady series of revelations about clinton's e-mail server, the f.b.i. investigation and the cozy ties between clinton foundation and clinton's time as secretary of state. >> alcides: chris, great to see you. thank you for joining us.
8:32 am
in the next hour. thank you. >> thank you. >> alcides: you can watch "fox news sunday" at 9:00. >> lindsay: good morning. 8:31. we are gearing up for more afternoon and evening storms but the morning looks dry for most of us. we need the break. temporary break. it will lower the rain chances overall for most of us midweek. this morning how about a treat? we could use brightness. it still looks tropical. we moist feel to the air. skytower radar showing that the moisture exists but it will settle in throughout the day. we look west of crystal river, spot showers here and there. but these will give way to the west wind by the afternoon to push the storms inland. this morning as a result of more sunshine, we are in the mid-to-upper 70s. a warmer start to the day with sunshine especially south. clouds, they are not opaque. but they are there for tampa north. what is well to the north is post tropical hermine. more models are showing more
8:33 am
but still close enough to the midatlantic and the northeast to bring rough surf and coastal issues the next few days. for us, the next few days flip-flopping the winds. today, west winds mean inland storms, especially north. 40% coverage. but for labor day we are dry to start. we will bring storms to the beach. tampa south, 50% rain chance and high of 90. >> alcides: all right. all that rain we have had the past few days has left part of pasco county no doubt drenched. kellie cowan is in a hard-hit area, elfers this morning. we are learning that the governor will actually be in that area sometime this morning. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning to you. yeah. we will be there as the governor arrives. he is expected to get here around 9:30. they will be touring some of the damage that this flood has wreaked on the area. especially in the elfers area. i know he will be touring a mobile home park this morning.
8:34 am
there are a couple under mandatory evacuation and a couple are under voluntary at this point. we are in elfers. the elfers area. right now as you can see, the anclote river completely overflowed the banks. this is another mandatory evacuation area. you can see the water is coming up right into people's homes. it's moving quickly. this is actually if you are not familiar with the area this is a street behind me right now. it looks like a river at this point. these waters are moving rapidly. emergency officials are warning that because of how quickly this water is moving they are expecting plenty more damage to occur to people's homes and properties and the roads themselves. when the water is moving this quickly it degrades the structural integrity of the roads. erosion occurs. this is not something that you want to try to drive through. and certainly not something
8:35 am
we have just right next to us, i know corey clark, the camera guy i am working with just locked in everything but we have boats waiting here next to the road that people have left here for themselves to get safely across. right now the river completely overflowing its banks. emergency officials feel like this might be the peak, but they are not sure at this point. they won't be surprised if this rises a little bit more. the more it rises the more damage it right now they are urging everyone if you didn't happen to evacuate and you are under an emergency evacuation, and you do need help at this point because you can see some of the homes can't get themselves out even if they wanted to. the number to call to get a boat rescue is 727-847-2411. as the governor visits today, he is visiting to look at all the damage. that is something that emergency officials with also stressing. you need to report damage out there.
8:36 am
damage throughout the county but they are telling me they are getting very few calls at this point from people reporting the damage. the more you report the damage the more help the county can get you and the more eligible the area is for state funding and disaster relief monies. that is another reason why they are stressing people to report damage. i believe what you were going to last me in the last hour or so why aren't people evacuating or something along those lines? i know a lot of people feel st homes. no one wants to have to do it. it's a terrible situation to be in. a lot of people have various reasons. one of them might be pets. but yesterday i saw plenty of people evacuating with their pets. so the county can work with you for whatever needs you have, whether it's evacuation or whether you need something. maybe you need assistance in some way. the number again to call is 727-847-2411.
8:37 am
>> alcides: the video behind you and that river there which is not supposed to be a road and it's frightening. i can't imagine what folks are dealing with in pasco county and citrus county. thank you for being with us. see you later today. we were mesmerized by the olympic athletes in rio but this week is the turn of the paralympians. after the break, inspirational story about overcoming obstacles and reaching the
