daughter just started preschool the day before. now she's a senior in high school. that's how you mark time with your kids, you know? >> so, we continue the reflection of the day. weather completely different this september 11. a lot of humidity out there, feels a lot like summertime. in fact do expect temperatures to get into the upper 80s, by the end of the day. there is cents a six, out of ten, in your weather by the numbers, off to muggy start, with bus stop buddy, and he has the umbrella, because we have a chance of thunderstorms later on. so, at the bus stop this morning, you should be fine. but for some kids there may be some rain coming home from school. at 70 degrees in philadelphia right now, winds out of the south at 8 miles an hour, and relative humidity is at 84%. 88 degrees, will be the high temperature before those storms hit. southwesterly breezes to up ten to 15 miles an hour, and then, tonight, we are down to 61 degrees, after the clouds clear, after the rain goes away, and we've got a gorgeous day in store for tomorrow, so
7:05 am
stay tuned for your seven day forecast, coming up. and now, it is time for traffic. standing by miss caitlin ross. >> good morning, everyone, right after 7:00 a.m. mainly, this morning, pretty quiet just construction, start off with 202 northbound between 401 and 29, in malvern, we've been talking about this all morning, construction has one lane blocked, seeing the delays as the morning commute picks up. let's take a lock at the travel times for you, as we get to the height of the a.m. rush. on the schuylkill westbound vine through the blue route, where you are seeing heavier stack ups, 26 minutes there, that will take you a little over what it normally does, also, 95 southbound, woodhaven to the vine, currently travel time of 34 minutes. slowing on the pa turnpike westbound, bensalem to valley forge, current time, 24 minutes, we'll have those for you coming up next hour, too. >> 7:05, and 13 years after the september 11 terrorist attack, president obama making his case for military action, against isis or isil. >> casino of ironic that was
7:06 am
last night. speaking from the white house the president detailed his four part strategy to stop this threat of terror to us here in the united states. steve keeley breakdown this speech for us little bit. steve? >> reporter: first of all no coincidence at all that that speech happened last night. they waited for the eve of 9/11 for sure, to win support, the first memory of everybody, you know, mind from this date, 13 years ago, is how beautiful the day was. and you see the sun sparkling, as we zoom into the tree limbs, you can see the sparkles of sunshine breaking through one of the many trees planted here at the garden of reflection, and as we pan over to the left, you can see the man-made light that shines up through those twin fountains that remind you of the twin towers, 18 people of those nearly 3,000 americans killed that day from this area. and since this date 13 years ago, america has been at war, and now waking up on the solemn date today, the president is hoping americans will support a new war front.
7:07 am
different than the invasions of iraq, afghanistan, but the kinds of endless never let our guard down and rye solve or might be doubted again kind of war that most predicted 13 years ago on this day, we would have no choice but to fight forever, since we let our guard down 13 years ago, and paid so curely for it. as we all show up at the special places like this to remember, the president hopes those memories still so fresh will be helping him get support for what he pushed for on national tv just ten hours ago. >> it will take time to irade kayla cancer like isil. any time we take military action, there are risks involved. specially to the servicemen and women who carry out these missions. but i want the american people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in iraq and afghanistan. it will not involve american combat troops, fighting on foreign soil, this counter terrorism campaign will be wage today steady relentless effort to take out isil where
7:08 am
ever they exist using our air power, for our support for partners, forces on the grounds. and so as americans lay flowers at places all around the country, like here, and you can see, they've done that already today, the president laying the ground work for what he hopes is support from both parties and from all americans to do what he thinks and most americans think needs to be done, especially, after watching the video of those beheading of american reporters last month, and then hearing the president say we don't have a strategy yet, that's good, for a a lot of people that we're meeting out here to hear finally we do have a strategy, especially since us intelligence thinks americans and europeans with passports from the united states and britain are among the thousands of people from all around the worlds who have joined that terrorist group in syria and iraq. so, around here, they're saying time to take them out before they take any more americans out like they did. >> exactly, word they'll come back here to the united states, beautiful memorial behind you.
7:09 am
i love what they did with that, thanks, steve. of course like we do every year, around the nation will pause throughout the morning, to remember the victims. a moment of silence held three times this morning, each to hon or the exact moments when the towers at the world trade center and the pentagon were struck. meanwhile private ceremonies will be held for survivors and victims families in new york and at the pen gone. >> president obama, national memorial in swelling ville will be open to the public all day to honor those victims. and, a 7:09, more follow up this morning tide to the ray rice scandal than video of him knocking out his then fiancee, the nfl has hired former fbi director rube earl mule tow lead independent investigation into how the league handled evidence in the case. that comes on the heals of associated press report that says a law enforcement official sent the tape to unnamed nfl executive, months ago. commissioner roger goodel says
7:10 am
the league didn't see the video until this week. >> so alex, what did the ffl know and when did they know it? boy, there is a term that goes all the way back to the early 70s,. >> mike is here, and our legal expert is here, as well y don't you certain up what we learned from ap yesterday? >> yesterday, mike, said that the league did have the tapes. they got as far back as april. >> april? >> when it was sent to them, then there is verification on voice mail from woman who received it and said yes, i know, it is terrible. so you take the next step. could that tape have come in and not gotten to the goodel office? from the jump i thought they had the tape. otherwise, barney running their security force. no way that they would not be able to get that tape, as powerful as the security force is, they probably have $10 million budget, hire ex fbi guys, the guy who heads
7:11 am
the security, with the former commissioner of the state police of pennsylvania so impossible not to have gotten access. >> so you hear the woman say we got the tape, i have look at it, and you're right it is horrible. >> yes. >> now, goodel, the commissioner, could say, well, somebody looked at it, and they didn't sends it to up my offers. >> well -- >> hard to believe. >> it is authorities believe. i think what that would mean is that the nfl is either incompetent or liars. if somebody didn't get it to roger goodel, a type that far importance, i would consider that to be innocent. i don't believe that happened. i believe roger goodel did see this tape, trying to sweep it under the carpet, didn't want it to blow up any bigger. and i think that now he's faced with the possibility that people don't even -- >> so what you're saying, two nights ago, when he looked into that camera, with nora o'donnell, he lied? >> i have to tell you something, mike. >> but he did say not to my knowledge. >> i have the memo he put out yesterday, directly to me.
7:12 am
no, actually, and he says: on multiple occasions we want the proper law enforcement to share with us any videos of the incident. different law agencies including police, atlantic city police, county police department, solicitor's office, none of the entities we were committed provide any video. were permitted but some way you can get it, even if they weren't permit in the is again denial, denial. >> i have taken probably a thousand depositions in my career. when look at him on that screen, i saw him blinking like crazy. >> he did twitch. >> he didn't sound like somebody telling the truth to me. >> but why? why would he do it? >> why? >> the greatest question ever. and i think did he it for two reasons. number one, he wants today unable the baltimore ravens, and their high file owner who won a superbowl, very close, and goodel, and he underestimated the impact that this domestic violence situation would have, thinking
7:13 am
the tape would never get out. >> do you know there are 30 domestic violence cases cents on his desk right now, the nfl? >> there are people convicted of domestic violence playing, guy from the san francisco 49ers, obviously the nfl, they don't take domestic violence very seriously. >> very smithsonian. because the cover-up went -- he acknowledged little bit of it, there were things that kept away, but he knew the fact what was going on, and he blamed the washington post. well, this was a situation, goodel is in, exactly right now, where he is in denial, but here is the thing. >> 1972, why would we ever learn the lies would catch up? >> the truth always runs you down. the truth is the same -- >> now they're having fbi investigator going to investigate, going to be full investigation, like they did with penn state, with louie free did the investigation. so, all of the truth will come out. >> but the fbi investigator has done previous business with the league, and law firm
7:14 am
has negotiated some television contracts. so how independent? >> mike the cynic. >> from day one. >> you need somebody more independent. >> that takes you back to 72, as well. roger goodel, canceled appearance last night in the carolinas, north or south. what happens to him today? >> well, he's going to be asked those questions, again, the same questions he was asked before, going to bring the whole situation up that the nfl did, in fact, get the tape. and he is going to be put on the spot, as to did you see it, did you not get it from the people that got it, what happened here. >> now in the building. >> yes, continue to faucet light. however, his ownership has given him full support on. >> this the public has no support for him. the ownership who he serves, has support for him, at this particular time. >> makes $47 million a year. >> but i still think he has to go, saying that from the beginning. he has to go. >> okay. hang around here. because this is also happening. this is the busiest day, i'm telling you, happening right now, judgement day for oscar
7:15 am
pistorius. the judge has ruled out premeditated murder already in her opening statements. and a lesser murder charge, leaving only culpable homicide, as the only possibility left. i would think. however, the judge has not red the exact verdict yet. so, oscar is accused of shooting and killing his girlfriends, reeva steenkamp. he claims he accidentally shot her when she was in the bathroom. and how about this? an elementary school in new jersey is starting the new school year without a bunch of ipads. the school says somebody stole them. here we go again. ouch. >> mike, this is the second time something like this has happened in the willingboro school district. fox 29's lauren johnson live outside twin hill elementary school this morning. lauren, what's the latest on this? >> report report alex, the epitomy of evil, down right nasty, stealing from children, what happened at this elementary school. as you said not the first time it happened. so looks like somebody is getting away with this.
7:16 am
on tuesday, police in the township were called to the twin elementary, twin hill elementary school here. there was report after theft. officers learned 12 ipads were stolen, and they believe the tablets were swiped at some point during the summer, apple, ipads, are not cheap. so talking about a 4,800-dollar lost. to this particular school last year, district reported the same theft, but in much bigger numbers, 150 devices at that time. but the district still not sure if those were snatched from schools, or district warehouse. either way, each one cost roughly $400. that hit cost taxpayers $68,000. they are not happy. a police spokesman says it is too early into this investigation to make any connections with the previous theft, of course they're asking anyone who has any information about these ipad thefts from the school district to call police. alex, mike? >> my goodness. i'm telling you. all right, 7:16. little late for weather, but sue will catch us up. >> yes, a lot of cloud cover out there this morning,
7:17 am
temperatures are little bit warmer than they were yesterday. pottstown, allentown, we have 69 degrees, here in philadelphia, it is 71 degrees. real muggy out, there 68 in dover, 72 degrees in wildwood. as we get our thursday started. now, winds are now out of the south. that's what makes all of the difference, see the arrow going from south to north. that means the humidity is coming in. because that's usually where it lingers. soap, 9-mile per hour breezes, and with it, being this humid, we're greatful for every breeze 10 miles per hour in dover. as far as precipitation, none to show in you our area. what we are watching is this area of precipitation out to the western part of the state. and stretching down through ohio, all marks where the cold fronts is. told but it y hot, humid now, cooler behind the front. so, when it hits, it will probably touch off some thunderstorms. very slight risk of severe thunderstorms today, but it could happen for some of us, that we could hear some loud
7:18 am
thunder, some heavy downpours, and some high winds. so if you are at the game tonight, you may have a rain delay. pop up thunderstorms, we may get one, we may not, 83 degrees, one more game, with pirates, and that is tonight. so the seven day forecast, has thunderstorms, $8,820, less humid tomorrow, and lovely with a high of 78, in fact, we gave it a ten, and then, a cooler weather shower saturday. looks like the showers just looking at some computer models won't arrive until very late in the day. so i think the balance of the daytime on saturday, should be fine, sunday, pretty nice, high of 74 degrees. very excellent. and another chance of rain then on tuesday of next week. so there is your seven day forecast it, looks like most of our weekends, caitlin, will be pretty good. >> yes, and looking forward to. that will some comfortable weather there, too. sue, going to start us off, talcony palmyra bridge, talking about it all morning. so, in philadelphia, tac-pal westbound near the mid-span. we now have an accident that has nothing to do with the fact that it was closed
7:19 am
earlier for a ship to pass. now we have an accident on it and one lane blocked. also, on 55 northbound, this is after 5:52, in vineland, those construction there, got the right lane blocked until 5:00 p.m. tonight. all day thing. finley we head to the atlantic city expressway between the farley service plaza and 73. we've got construction in this area, so if you are maybe headed to or from the shore, you will have some issues, maybe slow downs until about 5:30 this evening, al next. >> thanks, caitlin. mike, you have been pretty busy getting ready for big event? >> yes, calling this a you got to try this tasting party. let me explain what this is. i've been going around for about three years on every monday we do a segment you got to try. >> this so i try unique foods you can get in the delaware valley. so everybody goes i wish i could do. that will you can do that. you simply come over to sixth and market at the independence visitors center. i think we may have a grabbing. >> best of the foods you tried? >> exactliment look at the time. 6:30, 9:30, there may be some
7:20 am
alcohol involved. we'll have some music. >> maybe. >> about 25 restaurants that you can taste their food just like day. so please come out. you got to log on to our website go to the "good day" tab. and scroll down to the you got to try this. com website. that is fundraiser, trying help some philadelphia school kids. so go there, do that now please. remember that 20 cents tip lesean shady mccoy left for the service of pyt? wee havup a date. >> yes, another big name is stepping up in a very big way. who wants to give that waiter a thousand bucks. we'll have that next. >> that's a thousand dollars tip? >> ya!
7:21 am
7:22 am
7:23 am
were you eating smoked sausage in here? no! could have gotten me one. i did. grab a spicy smoked sausage breakfast sandwich. it's the smoked sausage you crave, now spicy. >> meanwhile, remembrances ceremonies will soon begin around the country, we will take these moments of silence, throughout the morning. let's get to up our robert moses there, in lower manhattan. so, what is different today on the 13th anniversary?
7:24 am
>> good to see you both, i think what's different. >> lower man mat and feels less like construction site, last year fences all around the 9/11 plaza, this year, those fence also gone, and so this area is now integrated into the rest of lower manhattan, yet another signal this area is coming back. talk a little bit about what we will see today. ceremony will get underway around 8:40 this morning. >> it hit the north tower, after that we begin the readings of those 2,983 namesment those people who died on 9/11, as well as those who died in the 1993 attack here, on the world trade center, the ceremony expected to last until sometime early this afternoon, and here is a interesting note. one thing little different this year than in previous years, the 9/11 memorial, that's those reflecting pools
7:25 am
will open at 6:00 p.m. tonight. >> robert, since it is the anniversary, of course it will be open to the general public, are their higher expectation when is it comes to security? should we expect to see a lot more happening out there when it comes to screening everyone when they get on the site? >> new york has always been on high alert, since 9/11, that hasn't changed. yesterday police commissioner spoke about the new threat that isis posts cents -- poses, he said isis poses even bigger threat in some senses, but new york is prepared, there is no specific threat today, and new york is ready to go. >> lower manhattan, on that date, 13 years ago, two buildings gone. you look down, you new where
7:26 am
you were, north or south of manhattan, you see, then gone. it is so great to see that building behind you, robert, just glistening in the sun. >> it is. and this view never gets old. one world trade center will open this coming fall, we're told that there are about 5 million square feet of office space that have already been leased down here in lower manhattan, the transportation hub, which is long overdue, and over budget. that's supposed to open next year. but that hub, again, will be another signal of the re integrate of lower manhattan, 11 subway lines coming into the hub. >> interesting, well, nobody will go into that building, you say that it is not full yet. but there are plenty of occupants. >> there are, going to be a lot of media and advertising
7:27 am
companies down here, that's the big question, would people come back to lower manhattan? would businesses choose to relocate here? the answer so far. >> yes. >> bringing new life back to their a. >> sure s people had moved out of there, but moving back in. and the prices were casino of low right after 9/11, people come back down there. hey, robert, thanks a lot. we'll check back with you. >> my goodness, alex, did you see this just across the wires here? i guess this oscar pistorius, as i interpret it, found not guilty. >> not guilty. >> that's the way i read it. >> so now we head right to our legal analyst con rotweiler in the news room, so what exactly does this mean then? is he completely cleared? >> no, not completely cleared. appears from what the judge has said so far he will not be convicted of premeditated murder, normally convicted of the lesser charge of murder. but cull recall homicide is still something -- >> prison time? >> not necessarily, mike, up to 15 years, she could
7:28 am
actually give him no jail time or 15 years jail time or anywhere in the middle. so not even there yet. but certainly looks like premeditated murder not going to be the verdict nor is murder. mike, if you remember, for three months, i've been covering this trial, i've always thought it was going to be culpable homicide. i never thought they could get premeditated murder because they couldn't get beyond a reasonable doubt. so now she is considering cull recall homicide. we'll see what happens. >> ken, what exactly does it mean for people at home? does it mean he was neglect? is that what they are saying? >> culpable homicide is the same as our manslaughter. >> oh,. >> that is a death occurred, but wasn't premeditated, didn't meet the qualifications of lesser charge of murder, so basically manslaughter. that's what i think this absolutely was. and then she will decide based on a loft other factors whether she wants to put him in jail or not. and remember, mike, there is still, remember, we talked about the other things that he was charged with? the shooting off of the gun, through the roof, and in the restaurant? he could serve up to five years for each of those charges as well. so still, still not out of the
7:29 am
woods. co-still serve significant time in jail. >> but i thought you could premeditate over about a four minute periods. >> you and i talked about this. you can. but she is determined that it is through all of the set of circumstances the fact that it was, you know, you know, a day when they were together, the whole day, that it was valentine day coming up p and all of the factors that go into that she didn't believe he premeditated killed her. >> so, the judge thinking he got scared and shot through the bathroom door? >> yes, probably leaning toward the fact that he thought it was intruder and trying to protect, you know, himself and reeva steenkamp at the same time. looks like that's where she is going. >> this is still unfolding? she is still talking and going through each of the counts? >> exactly right. she has to go through all 37 witnesses, talk about her assessment of all 37 witnesses, at the end that far, she will render a verdict. i still don't think it will be today. because it has taken her a long time. we may have this verdict tomorrow or sometime later today. >> boy they do things a lot
7:30 am
differently over there, don't they if. >> a lot differently. >> just her decision with a couple of helpers hine her. >> mike, over the last 33 days, when they've been deliberating she has been sitting with the two assess ores, gone overall of the evidence, all three have, so all three of them, you know, played a part in the decision-making process here. >> ken, thanks. >> i think what's good here, too, we see everything that the judge accepts and reject, going through everything. so, we're learning a lot here. >> so could take couple every days. >> it could. >> sue? >> we have bus stop buddy with us this morning, yes, this is a time, kids are waiting at the bus stop. there are a lot of clouds out there. the umbrella, though, for later on, when we expect showers and thunderstorms to pop up. six out every ten today. feels like summer, quite humid. that could be positive or negative depending on what you like. thunderstorms could be quite strong, at least some of them, later on in the day. that's why we gave you six instead of yesterday's nine. 88 degrees the high today. clouds, it will be muggy, and the thunderstorms popping up
7:31 am
later on in the day, i would say, any time after 3:00, 4:00 in the afternoon, tonight after the storms clear, we will see the clouds clear, and then temperatures will drop into the lower 60s, we will see some temps in the 50's, in the suburbs overnight, so, probably after midnight you will be able to turnoff that air conditioner and wait until you see the forecast for tomorrow. caitlin, i know you know it is great. >> i can't wait. thank you, sue. all right, picking up out there on the roads, lower moreland township where we startment tomlinson al philmont, accident just came, in all lanes block, not going to be able to access tomlinson road at philmont avenue. you will have to use one of the alternates, either bustleton avenue, or just try to get around it as best you can, and it is causing some delays. all right, also in glennside, limekiln pike at southeast ton road. just got an accident there. police are on the scene, so use caution, probably going to be some slow downs there. next, on 95 northbound, at the commodore barry bridge, here is another accident. three in a row. just keep coming in. it is on the shoulder, so not
7:32 am
blocking any lanes, but as we in the height of the morning commute you can probably expect some slow downs there. finally, 295 southbound, this is smear 168, black horse pike, we've got an accident right there. on the shoulder but also seeing some at least moderate stack ups there, too. and we'll have an update probably 15 minutes. mike? >> moreover, i have made it clear we will hunt down terrorists that threaten our country where ever they are. that means, i will not hesitate to takings against isil in syria as well as iraq. this is a core principal of my presidency. if you threaten america, you will find no safe haven. >> president obama goes on the offensive outlining his strategy to take down isis. >> yes, during a national address from the while house, the prepare prepared the nation for the next phase in defending america against this threat of terror. joining us now, terrorism expert, ed, professor at the foreign policy research institute.
7:33 am
always good to see you. >> michael. >> every time i see you, you were talking about something negative, but it is good to see you. >> on this anniversary, let me put up quick headline here. this is the thing that surprised me. obama ready to strike isil in syria. are we going to go into syria with our airplanes. >> we'll go with airplanes, the question, michael, who will do this on the grounds? you won't be able to get this job done strictly from the air. and the president right now says we have a coalition of nine countries. remember, he was very critical of george bush, in the iraq war, who had 34 countries. john kerrey said well there is more coming. here is the magic -- >> coalition of the willing. >> that's right. here is the magic question: if we're not willing to send grounds troops, and we know we need ground troops, who is going to send them? >> so mention the coalition, but didn't specifically say who was willing to help with
7:34 am
this. >> alex, we didn't get many specifics at all. >> except for the 475 troops, on the ground. >> yes. so now we're just about 2,000 advisors. >> advisors. >> so what's very clear is that this situation has been brewing for a long time. but the bee had he g of the two american journalists and the switch in public opinion has really driven the administration, two weeks ago we didn't have a stage i, and yesterday, the president is speaking not just to the nation, to the world, saying we're going in, but again, not many details. >> do you think some type of retaliation? he said some pretty strong words. is there summariesing in doing that? >> racing in everything.
7:35 am
realize, more than 100 americans have left this country to go fight for i cyst. more than 2,000 british citizens have gone to nice for isis. only about 500 british muslims in the queens military. >> what did you want to hear? we're going back in, troops and everything? the only way you'll defeat them. it says that you got to have people on the gown, but i can't believe, he wants turkey, saudi arabia, other arab countries to step in. and so do i. >> and what i would have preferred to have heard is no limitations on what we're going to do. so, it didn't mean that we had to announce ground invasion. that would have been foolish, it would never have happened. but, what the minute you say you are not doing, then the other side says oh, that's good. >> are you nervous today? , 9/11? >> i think the country's overall security situation is
7:36 am
worse today than at any point after 9/11, that largely has to do with the lack of control on our boarders, specifically on the southern border, and the fact that isis is not just recruiting large numbers of people to come, they're going to be sending them back, and, realize this: isis gets anywhere from two to $3 million a day. >> oil? >> oil that they are selling on the black market. they are very coordinated. this isn't -- these are not the jv's. >> thirteen years later we have an organization that's more dangerous than al quaida that we dealt with 13 years ago today? >> that's absolutely correct. last night the president gave a speech where in effect he said we're going to bomb the people that are posing syria, a year ago last night he said i want to bomb asad. >> such a mess in syria,
7:37 am
especially, good to see you. >> thanks. well, a beloved teacher and mom fight for her life. just got little easier. when a complete stranger offers her, that's truly when a complete stranger offers her, that's truly that low, no-haggle pric... when a complete stranger offers her, that's truly ...andndt all starts here, at carx. loon to and start your search today... ...and choose from over 35 thousand carmax quality certified used vehicles. from cars and trucks to suvs and minivans. browse the store nearest you... ...or shop from our nationwide inventory
7:38 am
and have the car of your dreams, transferred to your local carmax store. finding the perfect car is easy when you start your search at carmax. carmax. start here. don't believe tom corbett's tv ad. the facts speak for themselves. tom corbett cut a billion dollars from our schools. he took an ax to education. twenty-seven thousand educators were laid-off. class sizes increased. and now almost eighty percent of school districts plan to raise property taxes. tom corbett. can't trust him on education. can't trust him to be for us.
7:39 am
7:40 am

8:14 am
front will be coming through later in the day. with heat, humidity it, will touch off some thunderstorms, but we stay cloudy we may not see too many severe thunderstorms. under slight risk of severe thunderstorms because of the cloud cover. we will see what happens with sunshine, coming out a little later on in the day. and, some more of those temperatures, as we take a look once again, that 73 degrees, in philadelphia, at the moment. you know when temperatures are this good, you just can't see enough. here is a look at the forecast, for the game tonight. one more, with the pirates, phillies and pirates get started 75:00 again, could have some pop up thunderstorms, may see nothing, that's what pop up means, pop up here, pop up there, maybe not over citizens bank park. 88 degrees is our high temperature, for today. then we get to 78 tomorrow. tomorrow will be beautiful day. seventy-two on is saturday, now, saturday looks little if-ee, with some clouds, and probably some sun early in the day. but then, showers possible, later on, hopefully they'll
8:15 am
hole off until nighttime. but it looks a little unsettled for saturday, sunday gorgeous, and high of 74. and that weather extends into monday, as well. caitlin? >> thank you, sue, the accidents just keep rolling in this morning, so problems all over the place including on some of your majors, 959 southbound, just before route 141, we've got an accident that has the left lane block, doesn't look like too many delays yet. but they may start to pile in as we continue to go through the morning commute. lots, schuylkill eastbound ram top northbound route 202, so this is way out on the western edge of the schulkhill around the king of prussia, an accident there had a has the left lane block, 76 eastbound the ram top northbound 202, so avoid that area if you can. let's go to new jersey, next on the 42 freeway, right before 681, lower landing road. we have an accident there. that one, has one lane blocked. finally, on the atlantic city expressway there is one between pleasantville and route nine, an area of construction, got two of the right lanes blocked, that is until 5:30 today. so expect delays this morning, and again for the evening
8:16 am
commute. mike? >> thank you. >> at 8:15, the state health department continues to investigate questions remain as to what exact actually happened when joan rivers enters a clinic in new york two weeks ago for routine proceed you. >> is it ever routine teen? the new york daily news reports biopsy was performed after something was seen on joan rivers vocal cords. so when they had the scope down there, they see something, the paper says they went ahead and snipped off piece of the vocal cord to do biopsy. so, what is going on here? because the york ville clinic has been contacted. they say we never did a biopsy. the paper is wrong. it just makes us think what is going on. we brought doctor mike in, our legal attorney, ken rotweiler, very busy this morning, so, again, yorkville clinic says doctor mike, they never did the biopsy. would this be unusual had that biopsy occurred?
8:17 am
>> reporter: -- >> doctor mike: certainly if a biopsy occurred, there would have been another reason or possibility of having a problem. i brought in some things. because i want people to see. this is probably exactly the casino of scope that was used on joan rivers. it is a fiberoptic laryngo scope t looks down your nose, and the reason they do that is to look at the vocal cords. if you can see where that tube goes, and basically, what you're doing is she had some hoarseness, and trying figure it out. what people are trying to realize, hey, 1 percent of people that have this procedure can have something called laryngo spasm. where the throat actually closes off. now, i brought a throat with me. and what you have right here are the vocal cords, and i want you to look in there. that can actually close off.
8:18 am
you have three minutes to get air into the lungs or you will suffer brain damage. >> couldn't they have done like an emergency trainee the any right then? >> well, that, that is the million dollars question. when you have a medical emergency like laryngo spasm, you have to get air into those lungs or you'll suffer brain damage. so you need a tube like this, down the throat, by an anesthesiologist, or someone that knows what they are doing, or a tracheostomy has to be performed. >> requires general anesthesia, and all of that, that had to have been done to prevent brain damage. >> well, doctor mike, you mention medical emergency. is that the difference here the fact that this was done at a clinic in new york as opposed to a hospital? >> doctor mike: well the bottom line is they claim at this clinic that they have all of the appropriate tools and people and everything. the thing is that when something happens like this, it is an emergency that has to be dealt with right away.
8:19 am
>> they say they don't do biopsies there. >> whether the biopsy was done or not, do you have realize, when you have one of these procedures, 1 percent risk every having a spasm like. >> this so even on a good day. >> of course of her family is just irate. who is in trouble here? >> potentially clinic is in trouble f like doctor mike says 1 percent of complications then they better be prepared for those complications the better have the right resuscitative equipment. they better act in a very expedicious manner. doctor mike says in three minutes could you have brain damage, could you have problems, that means do you have get the scope down, get that airway freed up, in that time period, and if you didn't, and if someone dice, has brain damage from it, they potentially have big time civil lawsuit. joan rivers made a lot of money, will have a lot of lawyers looking at this case. >> what if she signed a form said hey if something happens, do what you need to do? does that mean they can't get anything. >> great question. on the issue of biopsy, if they did do biopsy, no
8:20 am
dispute, though have serious problems, because i know she didn't sign a form, informed consent, she didn't sign a form which allowed them to do a biopsy. >> how do you know that? >> from everything i read, nothing that indicate that that was even something that was even talk about. so i don't think that that was done. but the fact, still learning the fact here in this case, so as the fact come out, you know -- >> wouldn't it come down to that piece of paper if they do have it. >> that says what? if a procedure needs to be done, that they -- that they're allowed to do it? yes, if they are allowed that contingency, we're doing this endoscopy procedure, if one when we do that procedure we see something, we need do do another procedure -- >> five weeks ago, ken, i went in foreign does copy. and the doctor, she says, if i see anything down in your stomach, they were checking my stomach, i'm going to snip off little piece of it and do biopsy. so i signed the thing saying
8:21 am
okay, you don't have to wake me to up ask me. >> i think most people would sign that form. >> you're absolutely right f that form was signed it is okay. but depends what the facts are here. we don't know the fact. they're coming out day-to-day. we'll see what happens. >> doctor, closing comments. >> doctor mike: yes the point about the biopsy, if they did they would have to use a rigid scope like this which is a surgical procedure. and, i'm telling you, in talking with the people at my institution, at penn, when you do a procedure, a biopsy, you need to have it in a surgical center where they have ventilator machines, they have anesthesiologist. >> called a hospital. >> so if there is a problem, they know how to deal with it right away. we'll have to wait and see what all comes out with this. >> what equipment they had there. >> exactly. that's going to be the bottom line. >> okay, we'll stay on it, thanks, guys. >> thank you. 8:21, still ahead, the site for -- fight for andi.

>> quick checks in our weather, beautiful dale yesterday, ahead of the cold front, southerly winds, remembers the humidity has settled in. cloud cover has also settled in, but when we get some sunshine, and we really warm up to the upper 80s, then, when the cold front hits, that is when the thunderstorms will happen. and, all of that not scheduled to happen until later on in the day, so, kind of socked in with clouds right now, on ultimate doppler radar, but there is the leading edge of the cold front, air behind it a lot cooler and by tomorrow it will -- you will feel the nip of autumn in the air. under very slight risk of severe thunderstorms probably because of the cloud cover that's out there. we don't have the blazing sunshine now to really warm us up. meantime looking at temperatures that ring from 72 degrees in ridding, 69 west chester, to about 71 in
8:53 am
pennsville, new jersey, and 71 in bear, del square, glassboro, 70, williamstown, 70, as well. so pretty warm to get started on your day, no where to go but up from here with those temperatures. few more temperatures, mt. holly, 68, toms river, 72. so, for the phillies game tonight, there is probably a 50-50 chance of a rain delay. i don't think it will be a wash out. but, if you get one of the pop up thunderstorms that will hold things off for little bit, because 83 degrees is our high temperature game time, high temperature, see it, 88 degrees, again, thunderstorms are possible, late in the day. but, beautiful weather, and going to gave you a ten, for friday, with high of 78 degrees. saturday still looks if-ee, front coming through today, sort of stalls to the south and stays nearby.
