6:34 am
they returned fire, hitting him several times. he was rushed to the hospital. as of this point, his condition is unknown. also this morning, the sheriff is expected to release additional information about this case. we're hoping to find out what was in this guy's car. law enforcement officers pulled over 32-year-old francis perry. they approached his car and the sheriff said that perry shot at them. obviously they returned fire, hitting him none of the officers were hit. investigateors believe that perry had a large amount of drugs in the car and were hoping to confirm that information sometime this morning. sheriff judd said that perry is a known convicted, violent felon. his extensive history, including attempted second degree murder, fleeing to allude, impersonating a law enforcement officer and possession of meth. and he was just released from prison about five months ago.

6:36 am
county the past year and past several years. i don't think any of us would have thought what a serious problem standing water is. we're not talking hundreds. we're not talking thousands. we're talking hundreds of thousands of mosquitos. it becomes a breeding ground so a serious problem. when you talk about 81 waste tire dealers and tire dealers across the county, you can imagine what a problem this truly could be. >>russell: after you all sent the information about -- to talk about this, i was -- i didn't know that there are specific laws for how many tires you can have on a premise. >> and i'll be completely honest with you. either did you until we did some research for today's topic. but yeah. they're not allowed to have more than 1,500 waste tires there. you know those tires that people they get new tires?d them when - no more than 1,500 and some of
6:37 am
breeding ground for mosquitos. a lot of people don't know the species that carries the zika virus is here in hillsborough county. luckily no reported cases, but the species that can carry it is here. >>russell: and so how does it work? you've got people going out to actually inspect these businesses that have, you know, discarded tires? >> and we do. a couple of weeks ago we talked about the rapid response team and environmental deputies and they do. they visit all the search for new sites and they go out and visit. we take mosquito control. the county mosquito control with us and we spray. we spray everything to make sure that that zika virus doesn't come to the tampa bay area. >>russell: i read, there are 81 waste tire locations in hillsborough county. >> yeah. i didn't know that many, either. and that's a lot of dealers and that could be a lot of potential for some standing water which, you know, in turn becomes such a
6:38 am
mosquitos. they removed over 3,000 tires. you see them on the side of the road. some people don't properly discard them. they pick those up and collect those. one tire becomes a breeding ground for hundreds of thousands of mosquitos. >>russell: which brings us to, you know, we just came through a really bad rain storm, a hurricane and a lot of rain for us. it's a good chance to tell people, don't have standing water. we've learned a bottle cap, a ground for these kinds of mosquitos that spread zika. >> everything becomes a potential of a breeding ground. if you have any type of standing water where there's a flower pot, anything around your house, get rid of it. >>russell: it's good to see you. we have some advice right there. major chad, after tonight. >> after tonight it's official. >>russell: we'll be saying colonel chad starting next week. congratulations. >> thank you very much. very excited, very grateful. thank you, everyone.

6:43 am
bushnell, dade city at 69 degrees. brooksville, love it at 67. yeah, it's a little warmer and muggier south as you go mid 70s from bradenton through englewood and low to mid 70s for the inland counties. satellite and radar set up almost exactly the same way as yesterday. northeasterly wind and we still have some of that drier air in the mid levels of the atmosphere and this gives you of -- look at all of this red, this drier air that's been separating the state in half. northern part of the state has been delightful, southern part of the state a little more moisture so they had a few showers yesterday from sarasota south. same thing for today. tampa, we're holding you to the 20% rain chance and then slowly increasing the rain chances as you go a little further to the south. gradually over the course of the upcoming weekend, we're going to
6:44 am
i'm like punching it out, right? we'll get more tropical moisture to settle back in. once that happens, we'll raise the rain chances again. but even if we raise the rain chances for saturday, sunday, monday, tuesday, at least we had a nice break. from all the rain last week, not much going on this week and then we'll head back to normal with the rain chances running, say, 40% into the weekend, early next week. the thing is, i know you're in the upper 60s citrus county, county. still you get back to the lower 90s for today. one or two isolated storms to the south but i don't think you're going to see a ton of rain there. mostly clear, mild tonight. instead of 74, maybe 76, 77 in tampa area and then i did notice that the computer models want to increase the humidity a little bit tomorrow. 91 for a high. hot, humid with one or two
