blanton and you can see lane blockage we're dealing with and we could probably expect this to be extended as far as the time line because it is a very serious crash injury investigation. left lane will be blocked. that's moving in the northbound direction. southbound appears to be unaffected but you can see, of course, the delays that we're already building since the last hour. definitely an area to avoid. as we mentioned, this is north of blanton so alternates available to you. you can actuall and take lake iola, spring lake highway that runs to the west of 75 in the northbound direction. we'll be following this one throughout the morning and let you know if anything changes. >>russell: 7:02 right now. third and final presidential debate. more substance, yes, fewer interruptions, yes, and the candidates gave the voters a lot to think about. doug reports from vegas. >> donald trump called hillary

7:05 am
because of the evacuations from hurricane matthew. it's too early to tell which party is going to benefit the most from that. but that usually favors democrats. >>laura: leaving your garage door opener in the car can be a real mistake and a local couple found that out the hard way. shayla reaves is at the sheriff's department to tell us about the home invasion that was preventible and eerily enough, this all happened while they were sleeping. what did this couple tell investigators about what they sayas >>reporter: good morning to you. the victims in this case left their door unlocked to their car, also a garage door unlocked as well. and both of these provided an opportunity for thieves to get inside of their home and steal while the people were asleep inside. this is information coming to us from the hillsborough county sheriff's office and right now, you're looking at some video of a trio accused of using the credit standard stolen in the
7:06 am
accused of going on a shopping spree, leaving the victims to pay the bill. authorities again are calling this a crime of opportunity and they say there's some easy things you can do to prevent yourself from becoming a victim of a crime like this. for example, making sure that you like your car doors and making sure as well that those doors to the interior of your home are locked as well. also when it comes to your vehicle, make sure you don't leave any valuables visible. in some cases, also include that garage door opener. in this case, the thieves were able to get inside by first entering that unlocked vehicle, grbing that garage door opener, using the garage door opener to open the garage, enter the house through an unlocked door and they literally rummaged around the inside of the home while the victims were sleeping inside. now, in this case, we're told they not only got away with a

cameras and every single one of them shows loveliness this morning. brookdale bayshore camera, you know, it's 68 degrees at the airport but over here by bayshore, it's 64 with an east-northeast wind at six miles per hour. over in pinellas county, john hopkins all children's hospital camera, 73 with an east-northeast wind at 11 miles per hour. tampa, 68. you can see just every shot clear, beautiful, drier air aloft continues. no real change from yesterday. this is where the change is. it's 70 in dallas. it's warmer in dallas and houston than it is here right now. but you go to the panhandle of texas and it's in the blue. we have the cooler air settling in. wichita at 73. here comes the cold front, ever so slowly just plotting along and we've been watching, right,
7:14 am
comes so close and then stops. this one is not going to stop. this one is going to come through and not only that, but it will keep the drier air around for several days so when we look at the models and we see, okay, this is going to be around for four or five days, that's your first big front of the year. not the one that came through a few weeks ago that dried us out for a few hours. look at the difference in dew points. 68 little rock, 66 dallas. 46 in wichita so the front is steadily wor the south and the east and as it moves southeastward, a lot of the energy from this front is going to go north. so it's going to be what we call moisture starved. it's not going to have a lot of rain. overnight friday, you're driving home, early saturday morning you run into a sprinkle or so. great. but that's about it. we're not anticipating any decent rain with this front. today we're keeping it warm. after today we're going to start
7:15 am
into the weekend and you're looking at high temperatures in the 70s for both saturday and for sunday and the timing of it, honestly, couldn't be nicer. it's one of those times when you go to bed friday night and wake up saturday morning. even if you wake up at 5:00 or 8:00, you're going to feel the drier air as you open the door and get outside, get the morning newspaper. do people still do that? 87 for a high temperature for today. sunrise at be a beautiful one at that. mostly clear, lovely tonight with the low temperature of 69 degrees and tomorrow, scattered clouds with the breezes in the afternoon and your high temperature of 85 degrees. we have a moderate chop for boaters today. northeast winds this morning will shift to the north this afternoon at around 15 knots. our next tide is a low tide coming up pretty close to 12:30 this afternoon. your next seven days, that includes two days with high
7:16 am
tuesday, wednesday, the humidity will be in check and it just looks real nice. no major complaints for me. >>vanessa: i like it. it looks really good. i wish i could say the same about the roads. really the main concern is going to be out of hernando. i do have an update that 75 crash i mentioned north of blanton where we have the northbou delays in the area. fhp changed this from a possible fatality to an injury crash. that appears to bode better for the patient here who was transported to the hospital. we have the work arounds for you. exit at blanton, take spring lake highway. i can probably expect the lanes might be blocked for a couple of hours to come. use that work around for a little while longer.
7:17 am
sure you're planning extra time or avoiding the area if you can. i want to check on the major roadways and see how the travel times are looking. we have officially hit the red here at 30 minutes from 75, pasco-hernando county line area and moderate congestion here on i-4 coming into the interchange, completely clear northbound 75. just 10 minutes from the selmon to fowler avenue. ? it's the most wonderful time of the year? >>russell: andy williams, anyone? nothing wrong with that. >>laura: that's a great song. the wait is over. i can finally start putting any holiday wish list together now that the new niemans catalog is out. >>russell: this is more like a book. hundreds of pages featuring

7:24 am
on whether she gave consent. >> the fact that the only evidence was the text messages, there was no rape kit, there was -- really she didn't do any steps to prove her own case. >>reporter: the plaintiff is devastated by the outcome. >> i think some of the jurors may have been looking to the fact there was no rape kit, that she didn't go to the police right away. >>reporter: jurors reached their deliberations. >> we went through this -- we actually tried to prove the plaintiff correct before we made our decision. >>reporter: criminal charges have not been filed in the case with police saying the investigation is still ongoing. >>laura: in other headlines, iraq has sent special forces to help win back mosul. this is the fourth day of a massive operation to retake the

7:32 am
we've had her for nine years and she's a valued member of the family. >>reporter: how did this go down? you went to eat and the car was left running because why? >> we had to have the air conditioner on. you can't take the animal in the restaurant. we finished dinner and came out. the car was gone. we called the police. they responded quickly. >>reporter: was it locked or unlocked? >> we believe it should have been locked. >>reporter: it was keyless entry? >> keyless entry, keyless whoever got in was able to just take off. >>reporter: when you come out, you find the car gone and brandy gone. what went through your mind? >> horror. our dog was going to be gone. i really wasn't worried about the car. they left the dog out. we found out later somewhere on state road 64. she was found the following morning by a woman that lives out in parrish who took her and found out through animal control this was a missing dog. >>reporter: if you don't know

six lanes. if she took one step out there, she could have been made into a pancake. >> i believe she was so distraught she just sat wherever it was that she was released, waiting for us to come and pick her up. >>reporter: where is the investigation right now? >> they have found the vehicle and they believe they know who took the vehicle. the perpetrator took our phone and made phone calls on it so from those numbers, they've been >>reporter: your wife actually called the numbers and i think your daughter got involved with texting somehow. >> that's correct. there was communication back and forth between a woman and my daughter. >>reporter: they know pretty much who was involved in this so maybe two arrests might be forthcoming. >> that's what we believe, right. >>reporter: what is on brandy's agenda today? >> she's going to relax with her mother all day. >>reporter: cool. that's the story we like to
7:34 am
now we want to see the carjackers and the dog nappers or whatever you want to call them brought to justice. it's bad enough to steal a car. with a little cute thing in the car, i think it makes it even worse. back to you. >>laura: brandy is just about to go to sleep right now. she's there are relaxation mode. it's been a long night. >>reporter: totally chilled. >>laura: thank you, ken. russell? >>russell: 7:34 right now. at least one person is dead, five others hurt after a construction collapse in miami. a sections of the framework fell from the top of a 50 story high rooiz. firefighters say the man who died was just a bystander who wasn't hit. he had a heart attack while trying to run away. some of the falling debris hit a car, sending a woman inside to the hospital. two construction workers were also taken there and two others got treatment on scene. >>laura: government is recommending testing for all pregnant women who went anywhere in miami dade county recently. this is the only place in the

virus. more than 160 cases since the summer. state has done a good job of keeping the mosquitos from spreading but a new batch was found this week near miami beach. >>russell: a lot of voters cannot decide on a presidential candidate. that's why the final debate was so important. craig patrick was up late watching this and he joins us by phone this morning. > good morning. how are you? >>russell: good. thank you. so more substance last night, i think. what do you think? >> oh, i think the big winner was chris wallace. he found a way to coral the candidates. it was focused on issues, immigration, abortion, supreme court and with this, i think this was the kind of debate that voters were craving and didn't get in the first couple of rounds. with that, i think that both candidates seemed far more prepared. certainly donald trump than in the first couple of debates.
7:36 am
for donald trump at times but it may be best remembered for the one moment in the debate where donald trump said he would not necessarily accept the results of the election were he to lose, that he's going to keep us in suspense. >>russell: that's where i was going with you. so this morning, that seems to be the headline everywhere you look about this debate. he said that. if you stayed up after, which i did, and watched some o commentary on it, what everybody seemed to be so upset about is that's just not done in america. not accept the will of the people. >> you know, some trump supporters say, wait a minute. i seem to remember the year 2000 where you have al gore and george w. bush who were on the same page and weren't willing to accept the results. we went through a very difficult legal process. but that did not appear to be
7:37 am
said there is, as he sees it, tremendous voter fraud occurring in this country in sharp conflict with even his own campaign manager that says that there is not. so he was getting pushback from members of his own party, including ohio republican governor john kasich and others who said the notion that there is, quote, widespread or tremendous voter fraud is something they just don't buy into. donald trufrm has been that on the trail. when he follows that up, specifically by saying he's going to keep us in suspense, not accept the results, in that respect he may have stepped on what was otherwise a very good, strong performance for him. >>russell: all that said, i don't know how many days are left. somebody help me. 20? sorry. it's a few weeks. a few weeks until the election. did anything change last night?
7:38 am
look. debates don't have much impact on the race. first debate more people tune in and those who are late deciders tend to move one way or the other. a final debate from what was seen just doesn't move the needle a whole lot. i didn't see a whole lot that would change the trajectory in the race in a very big way. there are the possibilities that on the issue of trade and immigration where donald trump, i think did a connecting in particular with maybe some undecided republicans could have made some hay in places like arizona, in places like ohio and pennsylvania so this could have some impact on the swing states but you'll not see any big swings, i don't think, in the larger national polls that we've seen seeing that shows that this -- we've got a decent amount of separation in favor of hillary clinton. >>russell: okay. we're going to talk to you later on in the morning. okay?
7:39 am
>>reporter: bye-bye. >>laura: 7:38 now. like it or not, colin kaepernick has set an example by kneeling in the national anthem. it's his way of protesting what he calls injustice of people of color in this countriment there are a lot of people who stand in the presence of the american flag, even if it is a struggle to stand. 16-year-old eric trenhole many o leesburg is one o it's been seven years that he stood on his own. he used upper body strength to push himself up when the local high school marching band went by with the american flag and there it is. it captured the very moment. his uncle got a picture of it and he was so proud of his nephew he posted the picture on facebook and it has already gotten thousands of likes. >>dave: 7:39. in sports the cubs pull even with the dodgers in the national
7:40 am
game four, actually wasn't even close. 10-2 blowout. cubs broke a scoreless streak by scoring four times. former ray got that inning going with a bunt single. game five tonight in los angeles. and the indians will play the winner of that series because cleveland won the alcs in five games. they beat the blue jays yesterday in toronto. that was 3-1. it's of the teams last won a world series. in fact, most of us weren't alive the last time the cubs and indians won it all. the cubs have gone the longest, more than a century. 1908 was the last time they won a world series. the indians have had to wait almost as long. 19-20 for them. last time the dodgers won a world series was back in 1988.

center at 60 degrees now. to the north we're in the lower 60s. even weeki wachee, you've gotten back to 59 degrees at this hour. 67 in bradenton. 68 in sarasota. i would be happy if the temperatures stayed like this but they're going to get cooler as the front comes through and we'll start to feel it on saturday morning. here is the front finally on the map, back to the northwest. while you do see some rain associated with it now, that's all going to stay to the north of us. the through dry and it will come through overnight friday into early saturday morning so out ahead of it, of course, we'll keep it warm for two more days. today back to the upper 80s. then back to the mid 80s for friday. then after that, yes, after that is when we're going to start to cool it down, dry it out significantly as well. and you're talking about, i think just in general, the nicest, overall weekend that
7:48 am
you'll feel lots of warmth around again. tonight overnight lows in the 60s for many spots. lower 60s inland and north and tomorrow, breezy in the afternoon as the front approaches and high around 85 degrees. for boaters today, a moderate chop continues and i think we'll probably have that tomorrow and at least half the weekend as well because it will be pretty brisk behind this strong cold front. the thing is, once the front moves through, and of the atmosphere, it's going to be a gorgeous weekend and look at the high temperatures. 78 saturday, 79 sunday, including many of us, most of us come sunday in the 50s. so it's going to be just a lovely, lovely stretch of weather. >>vanessa: thanks, dave. 7:48. and we're back here checking out 75 north of blanton and hernando. we still have the lane reductions we showed you before

northbound direction. these alternates still apply here so you can exit at blanton and take spring lake to the north and we're seeing delays in the area. i apologize. sensors are off a bit here in the stretch of 75 but all red here, basically miles of this, this should be moved down there so that will give you an idea of how backed up it is in the area. definitely avoid. closer to the tampa bay, downtown tampa area, looks like we have pretty decent travel times on coming up over the howard frankland bridge over the interchange, looks good. also i-4 coming into 275, very good and southbound 75 just 15 minutes to get from bruce b downs to i-4. >>laura: all right. thank you. two f.b.i. agents paid actress angelina jolie a visit this week. they went to question her and her children about an alleged incident on a plane involving husband brad pitt. jolie accuses him of child abuse
