70-degree mark in clearwater and 71 in st. petersburg. dew points are manageable. you know, as long as we can keep that number where it is in the lower 60s. it may sneak up to the mid 60s. i think we'll be okay. another very warm afternoon coming at us with a mixture of clouds and sun. your highs go back to the mid 80s. vanessa? >>vanessa: and right now we want to get to the scene video out of the lutz area. a vehicle has crashed into a home and this is all happening off of -- heritage harbor road. the driver, unfortunately, died. we are able to tell you, however, the folks in the home are okay. power was knocked out briefly to the neighborhood, but we're hearing that's restored. we do have some lane blocks reported on lutz lake fern road on heritage harbor road. while we were to get more information, we'll give you more work arounds and bring you those

return to that initial meetup location, he could not make his way down martin luther king, junior boulevard because of a road block resulting from the accident that happened here. we're told he did recognize one of several vehicles involved in the accident as a vehicle belonging to someone he described as a friend. so far authorities have not released the names of any of the four people who died in this accident as they are likely about what happened. so there's certainly a lot of questions, certainly a lot of information we're going to be working to gather here when the person i spoke with arrived back at this location, he described seeing smoke. he described seeing one vehicle on one side of the roadway and the engine of that vehicle on the other. it's unclear how fast any of the vehicles involved were travelling but we will continue

6:12 am
international with the dew point running in the lower 60s, northeast wind at seven miles per hour. our temps run lower 70 as long the coast. mid 60s inland. similar to yesterday and we finished the same way. highs the next couple of days will be in the we dance on the salsa team together, and it's like a lot of power in what we wear. when we're practicing if i don't feel good in what i'm wearing i don't look good. t.j.maxx has that variety. i can get a lot for my money. it's like "yay t.j.maxx!" if you're feeling it, just go for it, don't wait.
6:14 am
6:15 am
a pair of powerful earthquakes have hit ce >>laura: a pair of powerful earth quakes have hit central italy, knocking out power and sending scared residents into the streets. and look at the damage there. the tremors were felt as far way as rome. scientists believe the earthquakes are technically after sho earthquake that killed nearly 300 people in august. there are no reports of anyone killed. only minor injuries to report. fortunately. that's a lot of rubble. >>russell: i didn't see any of the game last night and i know they started early. did the storm come through like they were predicting? >>dave: i'm like you. i didn't see anything. >>russell: does anybody out there know? let us know. >>dave: they obviously got the game in.
6:16 am
it. >>dave: i know it was cold. it was in the 40s. but yeah, that's a good question. again, they should start every game at that time. maybe even earlier for us morning folk. 5:00 would be a perfect time to start the world series game. don't you think, everybody? you could watch at dinner. i'm sorry. we have mid 60s in brandon, plant city, sun city center. so you know, our temperatures may be a couple of degrees think we're at the point now, they're not going to continuing to up. they're just going to stay here. every morning you're going to wake up and it's going to be like this. so yeah, the 40s are gone. really for the most part, so are the 50s, 63 in inverness. bushnell at 66. 67 in bradenton. sarasota, venice, englewood, all at 68 degrees. sebring joining you folks and then lots of 66's inland as well. you know what?
6:17 am
that's nice. it's mild. i like that. but we are running two to four degrees warmer than yesterday at this time. the winds have done a little bit of a shift on us as well. they've been primarily out of the northeast the past few days. now they're going to shift to the east. that also was a warming wind but it's also going to be brisk enough that that east wind is going to hold back any type of sea breeze that would try to develop. so while you've got this 10 to 15 mile-per-hour wind c the mid 80s so yes, our temperatures go back above normal and this is the way it's going to stay over the next seven days. when you get into late october, you get into november, for things to change you need a cold front to come through and we don't see that happening over the next seven days. so when you don't, you just kind of steady as she goes. temperatures up in the mid 80s or so.
6:18 am
in the afternoons with no real rain to speak of. because we have an east wind and it is pulling some moisture in from the atlantic, highlands county, polk county, you may get the tiniest of shower chances, less than 10% of that happening. in general, no significant rain in the forecast for seven days. you see this front tries to make a run at us. nope, that doesn't happen. just a continued dry stretch through halloween. lo halloween is going to be dry. it's also going to be warm, too. in fact, our high temperatures over the next seven days are going to be within a degree or two of this 85. so really, the only weather issue, and it's a minor one at that, would be for boaters with a small craft advisory as we have the east winds today running around 20 knots. high temperatures, 84, 85. lows in the mid to upper 60s and
6:19 am
>>vanessa: and i think to answer russell's question about the game in the rain, i believe it rained earlier in the afternoon but by the time they took the tarp off, there was no concern for the game at all. i was watching it. yeah. >>russell: you're just the biggest baseball fan in the room so i know. i think you may have dave on this. >>vanessa: i don't know. it's a heavy crown to wear. all right, thank you. we want to get to the roads right now. if you're heading through the manatee county area, disabled truck is reported southbound 75 at state road 64. lane blocks are reported here but they're going to be on the exit ramp. make sure you're using caution in the area. look here. we're checking out travel times. by and large, our majors not seeing anything big to complain about crash rooiz or constructionwise. looking like a 15 minute ride coming from the 175 exit heading
6:20 am
bridge. eight minutes apiece, the time between branch forbes taking i-4 eastbound and 75 southbound fowler avenue to the expressway -- i'm watching sky fox because i've been waiting. looks like they're arriving on scene right now of the vehicle into a home and this is reported lutz lake fern road at heritage harbor road. and so far, all i'm able to see right now, tow trucks in the area and lake fern. as we mentioned, driver of the vehicle has passed away and the folks inside the home are okay. bear with me. i'm seeing this for the first time right now. from what we're hearing from our photographer on scene, the blockage is going to be on lutz lake fern at heritage harbor. looks like they have that road blocked off and the actual crash

6:22 am
united nations, the united states, not cuba. it certainly didn't have the desired effect of applying more pressure to cuba with regard to human rights. >> the white house hopes to influence cuba to make economic and social changes by improving relations. >> abstaining on this resolution does not mean that the united states agrees with all of the policies and practices of the cuban government. >> direct message to congress which is the only wall blocking the end of the embargo. >> we cannot get our hopes up. we must say the embargo is an obstacle. that's how president obama sees it and the u.s. policy he wants with cuba. >> cubans remain hopeful about improving relations with the u.s., but they remind everyone the sanctions wee main in place which they say harm its people. >> the vote on abstention is certainly a positive step for
6:23 am
states and cuba. >> the embargo against cuba remains in place as congress refuses to bring the issue up for a vote. >>laura: local law enforcement agencies have intent the week going door to door but they're not looking for candy. >>russell: colonel chad is going to show us what deputies are doing to make certain sex offenders follow the rules this halloween. there's much more than a trophy on the line as the cubs take on the indians in the world series.

into the home, killing the driver. i was looking at whether the road is blocked east of heritage. the area of concern is from heritage harbor east to the next neighborhood over and we've been watching it. it looked like there was a truck a couple of minutes ago pulled out of a ditch. i'm not sure if that was related to the scene or that was a separate crash. power crews are working on scene. it's a rather quite a few deputies were seen in the area. your work around is going to be state road 54 and van dyke. it's a little bit dark. i'm not able to see a whole lot more except for the flashing lights in the area. so fleas -- please continue to avoid that area where the road you can see is blocked from that neighborhood towards the east. here is the new crash that's reported in the gibsonton area. u.s. 41 at cliff avenue and this crash is going to be in the

6:36 am
children, chasing their favorite candy. as parents and law enforcement, we have to be aware of the homes that they're visiting. we've been out for two weeks making contact with every single one of those 250 sexual predators that are on some type of sanction to prohibit them from having any contact with children, reminding them of their sanctions, letting them know, hey, you can't put your light on. universal sign for, hey, participating in halloween and do anything else, any type of decoration, anything that would entice a child to visit their home. >>russell: you folks sent over a letter, the letter that you sent to these folks, that you give to these folks and it's pretty explicit. >> it is. the sheriff is reminding them, the other 1,800 sexual predators and offenders out there that may not have sanctions, some may, hey, listen. you can't participate if your sanctions say you can't and yes,
6:37 am
come to your home. >>russell: and one of the things you also say is, you tell the folks, yes, we're monitoring it. we're not doing this covertly, openly we're monitoring it. >> absolutely not. we make contact and it's not random. it's registered. we know where every single one of them live. we're going to monitor them to watch their actions. that's how we as law enforcement are going to keep our children safe. >>russell: for parents, they need to be aware of this as trick-or-treating, obviously be with them. if there's a house, no lights, these folks have been told don't have your lights on, don't have any decorations. if that's the way the house is, don't let the kids go up to the door. >> absolutely. i don't mean to make everyone believe that everyone who shuts their light off, you know, is a sexual predator or offender. it's just the universal sign for, hey, i'm not participating

home. >>russell: there are things, the usual things. the mask, the costume with reflective tape. >> and russell, would it surprise you to know that halloween is one of the busiest nights at the hospital in emergency rooms? i didn't know that. but it is. it's because parents have to make sure that their child's costumes fit, that they have the peripheral vision, that they can see crossing the road, that they're not going to trip over keeping your child safe. >>russell: we have to run. let's hope for kids to have a happy halloween. >> absolutely. make sure as a parent we check their candy. >>russell: good point. >> make sure it's factory labelled. we can't check it enough. check it, check it, check it, make sure it's safe. if you think for one second it's not safe, throw it away. get another piece. >>russell: thanks, man. have a great day. >>laura: 6:38. it's been a busy morning at

(softly) like hearing the sound of your own voice. get more choices you love, now with all day breakfast.
6:45 am
look at the temps along the east coast. when i see this, 76 in melbourne, 79 in stewart and 78 in west palm, i think, well, the winds are starting that shift more toward the east rather than the northeast. i know it doesn't seem like a lot, but look what that does to the morning temps. and then as you work that east wind across the state, we've got mid to upper 60s in lakeland, frost proof, sebring, wauchula is about 65 degrees. tampa is at 69 petersburg. boy, the cold air has really been locked into the north. it's spilled out a little bit into the carolinas and it's actually been pretty chilly in new england but the rest of the south, excuse me, has been beautiful. little rock at 57. dallas at 67. houston at 61. dew points in the upper 50s to lower 60s so i don't think that's going to change. typically, you know, you need a big cold front to come knock this stuff out, and we don't
6:46 am
seven days. high pressure, sometimes it will just weaken but another one builds in right behind it. so the only change today, more of an easterly wind. that will pretty much solidly guarantee we're going back up into the mid 80s for high temperatures. i still don't think we have much in the way of rainfall. in fact, rainfall chances less than 10% so that's not going to happen. brisk winds out of the east, though, will hold back a sea breeze. now that the water breeze could help us out. we're easily getting back in the mid 80s for today with that lack of rainfall. you see a front to the north. watch as this just bypasses us to the north. we hold on to scattered clouds and moderate humidity going through the weekend and early next week. i wish i could say, okay. halloween is going to cool down 10 degrees for the trick-or-treaters, but it's not. it's going to be warm, in the
6:47 am
again, it will be dry which is fantastic. clouds, sunshine, i'm using the term seasonably warm, high temperature around 85 degrees. sunrise a little less than an hour from now but soon we're getting the beautiful pictures of what it's going to be like on he cameras. 68 degrees tonight with a few cloud around and then tomorrow, partly cloudy, nice and warm again with high temperature around 85 degrees. please be careful, boaters, because as pretty as it is, look at knots and a moderate chop and it's setting up offshore. coastal waters again today. next seven, mid 80s all the way through until really next wednesday. like 84, 85 degrees with lows between 66 and 68. honestly, not a lot of change in the next seven days, vanessa. >>vanessa: good to know. we want to check out the sunshine skyway bridge. we have notable southbound delays. you can see them on the right
6:48 am
right lane so you do have at least one lane passing but it is moving pretty slow there near the top of the bridge. delays just under 10 minutes so make sure you're giving yourself that time out the door if you're heading that way. if it doesn't take you too far out of the way to take 75, that's probably your best bet of avoiding delays. we have sky fox checking out this vehicle reported that crashed into a home, lutz lake fern road. my goodness. this is such a mangled vehicle right reports -- yeah, that's the car, russell. the driver passed away. lutz lake fern road and i guess the good news is the folks inside the home are okay but unfortunate for the driver. so they're in the process of towing it out, looks like, and the road is still shut down in the meantime and drivers can find their best work around, taking van dyke or state road 54. of course, we'll watch this one. we'll let you know when the road
6:49 am
find out. all right. it's about to switch over to 6:49. let's get over to charley belcher and see what he's working on this morning. >>charley: how are you? >>vanessa: fine. a little busy but -- >>charley: a lot busy. thank you for keeping us informed and i hope everybody can stay safe on the roadways. the roads make me so nervous. we just got back from vacation, had to drive about 11 hours from here to the mountains of north carolina and man, you just see so much craziness on the roads these days so it's scary to be out there. we talked about you being a renaissance woman that you do everything from knitting to cooking and violin and piano. but were you ever involved in theater when you were in school? >>vanessa: no. i think i told before you, i was in the pit orchestra but not actually on the stage. >>charley: you were in the orchestra. never in the theater? >>vanessa: no. that's nerve racking. that's scary. >>charley: you're on tv every day.
6:50 am
>>charley: is that scary? >>vanessa: totally different. >>charley: it is different. you're right. it's one thing to stand here in front of jason holding a camera and try to make him life and just pretend -- in my head, everyone watching tv is, you know, laughing. >>vanessa: that's true. >>charley: it's another thing to stand in a theater with the full crowd and you know whether they're laughing or not. there's no better buzz than when they are. and that applause. of course,he feeling than when they're silent and they're supposed to be laughing. we're going to have a little theatrical fun this morning. we're at the university of south florida. theater and dance department where students are putting on the production of sweet charity. i have flashing lights and bead curtains and all i need is actors and dancers and singers and they'll all be here. hey, big spender, that's from the show. recognizable numbers we'll show
6:51 am
runs tonight, runs the next two weekends. come out and support your local bulls and see a good show, too. >>vanessa: i'm looking forward to that. thanks, charley. >>russell: all right. new iphone 7 comes without head phone jacks but its new wireless head phones are still not ready. it's leaving some customers in a bit of a bind. >>vanessa: and then holy moly i served under president bush and obama. i fought the taliban. i was asked to form a global coalition to counter isil. when someone makes the comment
6:52 am
it implies a complete ignorance of the reality. but i believe secretary clinton really understands the threat that the islamic state poses to the united states and to the american people. and i believe she understands how to wield american power to ultimately defeat this threat and to keep us safe. i'm hillary clinton
6:53 am
follow your own sense of style... because, you want to be confident. t.j.maxx really helped us express our creative side. that's the best part. you don't know what you're going to find.
6:54 am
we're a team. yeah. apple made a big splash maxx life at t.j.maxx. when they announced the ne >>russell: apple made a big splash when they announced the iphone would not have a head phone jack. >>laura: and all the new iphone numbers are left where are the new wireless ear buds? here to talk about it, lauren simonetti. you know, typically with apple and a product rollout like this, they have everything lined up but this has not been the case. i's rare. >> they're so detail oriented and lately they've been criticized for maybe not paying attention to all the details. i guess they're paying attention again but they're postponing the launch which was set for later this month of the wireless air
6:55 am
7. they were expected to sell for about $160. all we know now is they're not ready and they're going to come out at a later date. coincidentally also a big event for apple. we don't get as excited about this event as we do for the iphone ones but it's a mac event. they're expected to upg gg ggri upgrade the mac book pro. it will have a fingerprint sensor. use apple pay that way the way you do on change like the top bar where all the functional keys are. they'll make that different. >>laura: quickly let's talk about guacamole, bigger problem for the super bowl than it is for the world series. what is this all about? >> for me, my daughter loves avocados and the last couple of times i bought them, they were $3 per avocado. i thought maybe because i changed food stores that was the price.
6:56 am
there's a strike by growers in mexico. they want to get paid more so they're not giving us as many avocados as we used to. in some places, wholesale prices are up four times. it's affecting restaurants, too. so pay attention. i don't know what they're doing with the avocados in the meantime. if they're holding them back, what are they doing with them in mexico? making tons of guacamole? giving them for free? >>russell: what are they doing? just when avocados became good >> they're good for us, they're trendy. i'm buying them all the time. $3 a pop, not even organic is crazy. >>russell: yeah. good point. we'll see you later, okay? >> bye. >>russell: if you watch at 7:30 this morning, we're going to tell you the very best day and time of day to fly if you want the least hassle at thanksgiving. walter is live at tampa international with some valuable
