7:03 am
we've got 12 degrees in pottstown. nine in lancaster. eight in millville. a cold, cold morning with lots of slippery spots, and 23 degrees, now, 36, by lunchtime, that is our high temperature actually and a refreeze after dark when temperatures drop below freezing once again. we will talk about what is coming up this week and it could get interesting once again. we will have that forecast for you. bob kelly, so many problems, even though the roads look like they are in good shape. >> they look like they are in good shape and folks get a false sense of security. many folks haven't driven so this morning is first time even though they dug their car out they are navigating now. look at this fellow head on in the snow drift right here. this is a a live look at route 309. so that is one accident. this fellow just spun around. we have police in the background. this is 309, right here near orvillea road and a example of the icy, dangerous conditions,
7:04 am
that are out there. a lot of folks don't like to drive-in snow to begin with. really think burr travel plans, here for today, first ones out of the gate, already having a problem. good morning to the shaders, look at this mess, live look at 38 on to route 73, you can see, some of the ramps may to still be snow covered. and that snow is being pushed on to some of the travel lanes, and and already an accident here. the first trains out of the gate are running with ten to 30 minute delays on the regional rail lines. so check with septa.org. go to the systems status and you will see the exact train, bus, trolley that you plan to take today. same deal with the buses and the trolleys, the the cct, paratransit they will prioritized the appointment for medical and dialysis appointments today. northbound on the northeast extension an accident mid county up to lansdale. crash on the 42 freeway.
7:05 am
new jersey transit will attend full service but they are running with 20 minute delays. those delays will depend on the road conditions, in the neighborhoods, and northeast philadelphia, germantown, manayunk, roxborough, some of the streets are not going to be able to be passable with some of those buses, so delays are certainly rolling out here this morning. mike and alex, back over to you. we were talking yesterday this will be a much more difficult today then saturday was because saturday, everybody just stayed home. >> yes. >> now people are trying to get to work through all of this. look at this mess. this is, a shot we shot yesterday, down the shore. look at that beach erosion. it was horrible, the flooding, people have ice water basically in their homes. up and down the jersey shore. >> that is where steve keeley is, he has been here all weekend. he has seen how things could change. >> he could not get out. he is in north wildwood right now. >> hi there, steve.
7:06 am
>> i have the the best way to illustrate the beach erosion here and dune erosion. so i'm on the bay side of the dune. you can see cut out, way higher then i am. this is on the back end of the dune, okay, and you can get a sense of how high the cut out is. of course, the ocean is coming in. now look at this side, i don't want to get soak but i will run over here before the next wave. look at how high it is. >> yes. >> you look like a little guy. >> i look like an idiot too, trying to out run the waves. >> building a sand castle. but you have to stand next to this and look at the dune fence here. so this dune got beaten up from the front and then it got sucker punched in the back. here we go, sorry, this is not for dramatic effect i'm trying in the to have my feet wet. i will stay here and wrap it up from here. if we can we will give you an idea about how big, you are waiting for a blooper, mike,
7:07 am
aren't you. you can see how close the houses are and why they need these dunes here so bad. so the dune did it job but you keep saying what will we call the next blizzard or storm since we're still only just one-third of the the way through winter and the the worst nor'easters in my experience as a reporter going back to 83 and 84 when i covered my first one in march of 84. worst ones are toward end of the winter and start of spring. all right. i may get out here. i am out of breath. you guys will have the the mayor on and he will tell you how bad it is and how high this tides was. all time highest tied. no surprise how this dune got caught out on both side, but again you, a at least dunes beat up, not homes and certainly not sue serio's lovely condo down the street. >> right down the street from where you are. >> seeing steve keeley, my gosh. >> that looks really good. perfect television, good visuals there.
7:08 am
>> as you know, allentown, what did they get, 31.9 inches of snow? >> yep. >> they got the most snow and that was a new record. >> new record for allentown. >> we are taking a live look at allentown right now. they are digging out, and still, of course, in snow this morning. >> it looks like they have a good path cut through that section. dave, he is there this morning. what are you seeing, dave. >> reporter: we are seeing some traffic. folks able to get out, they are on the road right now. the thinks seventh street going into center city allentown. you can see, in fact, that it is the traffic that is helping kind of clear some of the roads here but they are moving very, very slow. look at these vehicles boxed in. this person with the parking lights on parking because they cannot get out. it looks like there is a bit of the cut out in the back side but that is how tricky it really is just to try to dig a little cut the away to get out. this is usually a lane too think about that. so we have all of this snow in boxing in these cars and a bit of the lane as well, but
7:09 am
people are digging out indeed, a lot of neighbors are complaining, they say the plowing, the city of allentown hasn't done a good enough job in getting to the the side streets and we are seeing in some of the video there. although, the city of allentown did put out in an alert saying that they will start another round of plowing, by 7:00 o'clock, this morning. but still, the folks are talking and they satisfaction they just cannot get out. >> the plow trucks has been doing the main road, that is it. >> they have not really done their job because they have been getting stuck or they just can't do it. >> i'm on our own. we dug ourselves out so i can get to work tomorrow. >> reporter: meantime another live shot of allentown going in to center city allentown here. you can see the the situation there, two police cars and a tow unit. cars have been park nothing business parking lots, overnight, probably because there is no place else maybe to park. maybe they will park there
7:10 am
over the weekend. but just another messy situation looking down toward allentown. people are still trying to killing out, back to you good are their schools closed too in will allentown. >> reporter: from what we understand there are school closure is here. >> undoubted here. >> just like here in philadelphia, public and catholic schools, what we call parochial, archdiocesean schools, catholic schools, they are closed too. the schools are all closed. hey, thank you for all of the pictures you have been sending. i should say pictures you have been sending, videos. it has been quite entertaining all weekend long. have you seen all of the videos of people with no shirts on jumping into the the sand. >> the snow challenge or something. >> snow challenge. >> bathing suit, jumping out. >> you take your clothes off and hop in the drift. i have not done it yet. >> you will do it. >> you never know, days early. >> that would i like to see. >> at this point i am sensing that we might put them on tv
7:11 am
here. >> okay, so this one, this is from kate, the snow as high as my two and a half years old in west norriton might gosh, so cute. that is one way to measure the snow. >> and then, did what i could yesterday, finish to day. talking about shoveling out. caroline has her work cut out, don't you. i think we have another one since the the snow is so bad. >> it is so bad it is just dark. >> do we have one more. >> i over the weekend saw a bunch of different swim tools, high school and college swim teams. they got the in to their swim trunks and then they would just jump in the snow and just swim do you want to see that. >> yes. >> lets look at one of of them right there. >> take your marks. >> there is another good one right here. >> boom. >> there we go. >> i love how it looks when
7:12 am
they do that first dive in. >> yes. >> here we go. >> it is so stupid. >> can you you imagine what their body feels like. >> there you go. >> what do you think is waiting for them,. >> would i go right to the hot shower. >> boy that would hurt though. >> high school swim team right there. >> you know, a lot of shrinkage. >> the front page of the metro. >> can you dig it. >> we can dig it good we can dig it. >> can y'all dig it this is how i cleared my sidewalk just enough to walk through, you know what i mean. >> yes. >> there were a lot of tunnels. >> a a lot of tunnels. >> yes. >> hey, sue. >> you know, we should warn people know what is underneath the that snow before you go diving in. we show these pictures and people will be jumping off second floors of their houses and stuff and it will not be
7:13 am
good. be smart, and then of some fun. top snowstorms, we're number four blizzard of 2016. >> sue? >> yes. >> you and i, have covered three of those storms, three of the top four. >> 2010. >> iowa is here. >> 2009. >> i was here. >> the one we had. >> were you there for that 1909 christmas song. >> yeah. >> it was a white christmas for sure. >> i loved it, yeah. >> and today is a january, 25th, so it has been a month since christmas so weather we wanted on christmas is just one month away. 31.9 inches at lehigh valley international. of course, that was a record. there is the blizzard of 2016 in the middle of the atlantic ocean. unfortunately it is taking aim towards scotland, wales, and, great britain, because it will give them a lot of rain unfortunately. the future cast for us, we're
7:14 am
jumping ahead to tomorrow evening. it looks like we will have a few rain crops rolling through. it shouldn't be a big deal. just call a nuisance storm. that would be late in the day tomorrow. it should be well above freezing. we shouldn't to have worry about anything but rain. that is just a shower on tuesday evening. and then we are watching the possibility of a coastal storm this one is still a wild card though right now. we will let you know more about that tomorrow. but, a warming trend as we get into the weekend, by sunday we will be up to 48 degrees. that is your weather authority forecast, bob kelly, so little time. todays is the first day everyone will attempt to drive back to work. here's an example of one intersection in south injuries that i will get us in trouble. you cab see so much snow on either side of the roadway but that patch of ice or snow that fell off the back of somebody's carries going to cause for some slippery conditions this morning. good morning to the 42 freeway. if it looks wet it is probablyized over.
7:15 am
23 degrees. headlights come in towards the city and rough go here on route 309. lot the fellow on the right side of your screen. look at that. he is trying to rock it to try to get out of the drift, that he wound up going into. this is route 309 near or villa. we have had a couple of accidents. you see police in the upper left there in the background. this fellow on the right, look at this guy, yeah. >> passing with the snowplow there. i just hope he doesn't hit the gas and comes out like a bull the on the right identify there, wind up hitting somebody, that is an example of is what out there. even though the the roadway is clear of snow we have slippery spots. >> yes. >> mass transit systems are giving it their best go. we are 20 to 30 minute delays here and there on the regional will rails. platforms slippery, buses and trolleys, manayunk, roxborough, bridesberg, port richmond, germantown, watch
7:16 am
for some detours because of all of the snow piled up in your neighborhood. mike, back over to you. >> hey, bob kelly. >> yes. >> come over here and stand with us because we will do a guy thing, a man thing. just a bunch of guys standing around talking about sports. >> okay. >> how does that sound. >> i'm ready like they do on the nfl show, some reason they hold football while they talk. >> let's do it here. >> yes. >> you are from where. >> i'm from sports radio 94 wip. >> that is correct. >> let's act like the guys on fox on sunday morning, standing around with the football in your hand. what do you think, it the is panthers, broncos, do you like the match up. >> great match up, young verse old, newton verse manning and two, outstanding defenses. this weekend proved again in the nfl despite what chip kelly threw down our throats for three years that defense wins football games. >> let's talk about the first
7:17 am
game, which one was that. >> afc championship game. >> yes. >> i was watching the guys early on before the games started. most of the analyst say that new england was going to go into denver and beat them. >> they did not. >> i didn't feel good about it. >> they went to overtime patriots and broncos. the the broncos won that game just like they won this game. >> it seems like brady was a little bit off. >> he was not comfortable. >> over throwing, under throwing. >> without him they are not in this game. the line was like quit on cheese. nobody was helping out in terms of his receivers. the the only one was gronkowski. bill belichick flat out lost that game. >> what do you mean. >> they are down eight-point with six minutes to go, fourth down situation, they are in field goal range. kick the the field goal make it the a five-point game. denver is doing nothing in offense. you will get it back and you will win in the end. they didn't do that.
7:18 am
>> clock management. >> it happens. >> sometimes. >> i don't know if this is on the air but in my monitor we have panthers/cardinals. boy, panthers looked good, don't they. >> they look like the team to be. the it be tough to beat that team on both sides of the football. what is interesting this super bowl match upcoming up with carolina and denver f you look at points scored and points allowed both are separated by only a point. they are very evenly matched teams despite the two different styles that they have, especially looking at the their offense source broncos offense and if you look at the defense if you are a at the broncos defense. >> who wins this game, broncos verse panthers. >> i think that the panthers are the more complete team in this scenario. they have a better offense. they have just as good a defense. broncos, they have payton manning as a quarterback but he hasn't been pay tongue manning for two years, really. >> so one touchdown this year.
7:19 am
>> he has had quite a streak. >> week six they were six and zero and he said we're six and zero and still waiting for our first victory. >> just because he has not been the the guy to lead them. >> you are going panthers for super bowl victory. >> i am too. watching yesterday's game i always try to compare it to the eagles. watching these games with the eagles. i'm watching yesterday. i'm watching how great that panthers defense is. it reminded me of the jim johnson defense from years ago. i flash back to high school watching great eagles football. i'm thinking to myself, these guys, the the eagles could have waited a few more weeks and they could have had orchestrate or of that defense sean mcdermott. they could have got him. instead they have doug pederson. they didn't even interview him. >> i know, that is my problem. >> never on that radar. >> say it to yourself, eagles head coach is doug pederson. >> instead of sean mcdermott, super bowl winner.
7:20 am
>> possibly. >> possibly. >> bob, who will you picky will go denver. i just denver because they beat new england. >> you don't know anything. >> get out of here. >> real quickly here, we have had hey big day of basketball here in philadelphia yesterday, because of the snow, everyone played yesterday. how about smu, 18-zero comes in number eight in the country and they go into north philadelphia and they get beat by temple owls. >> it was great because larry brown came here. it is larry brown. >> i like larry brown. >> but larry brown had a great comment at the end. it was very passive aggressive as you see him right there with the the fans storming the court. he said, oh, man, temple one of the most winningest teams in a all of college basketball storm the court for elite smu, you know, and very passive, very true larry brown. it was great. >> well, he said earlier in the year i cannot imagine, when i started this program at
7:21 am
smu that anybody would circle smu, but that is a big game for most teams now in america. >> yes. >> i want to explain what i see happened to villanova number four in the country they lost to a very good providence team. >> yes good i'll tell you why they lost. >> let's roll footage of the villanova providence from the wells fargo center. i will tell you why they lost, because the the sixers had to delay their game, to last night to saturday, villanova could not put down their logo, on the the floor. they didn't have the big v for villanova on the center circle there. if you play on a sixers logo you will lose. >> that is it. >> good observation by you you. >> is that it. >> that is best analysis i have heard in sports. >> thank you. >> you were in high school in the mid 2,000's. >> yes. >> get out of here.
7:22 am
>> villanova, a big v on it, on the court. >> right. >> they were running over a sixers logo. >> as a temple guy i had no problem with that. >> is that a great win by temple. >> phenomenal win. >> they have beaten seven, top 25 teams, in the the last couple of years. >> um-hmm. >> they have been doing great. they have been doing phenomenal, they have beat cincinnati as well. no one expect them to do that. they have been doing it a phenomenal job. fran dunphy has them in the right direction, no question bit. >> last year when they came to temple too didn't they win. >> no, smu beat them three times last year and why temple didn't make the tournament now that they have beaten them and now maybe they can make the tournament. the station will catch on fire if i don't throw to break right now. here we go, thanks, guys. >> i felt like hugh and howie long there we will show you the east coast and shovel some snow.

7:26 am
some people say the blizzard of 2016, it was good timing. it felon a saturday so people didn't have to get to work. but the problem is, it still may have cost us, right lauren simoneti. >> it was expensive, not as expensive as we feared but early predictions, say this storm was 850 million-dollar. they were predicting a billion. so it is less. the the area which hit you, me, washington d.c., this is an area that does $16 billion in output per day. do you know on a machine through friday, that helps us. no major power outage. how did you fair with the storm. >> we did have some power outages, we did but here's the the thing, if no one had to go to work, why was the the cost so high. >> well, you know, restaurants, the bars and the shops were closed down but then other people say you had a big transfer of money.
7:27 am
maybe you didn't go to to your local store but you bought something on line instead. 300 movie theaters were closed down, so that could have affected broadway was shut down for a day. >> wow. >> you did have epic closures but people bought other things. you had to gear up. bought new hats, scarves, boots, we had a shifting of money. >> i had the baby out to see her first snow. >> i saw the picture, how did the baby handle it. >> cold. >> she was very confused. she was not cold. because i could not have bundled her more. she was sweating. she is like mommy what is this white stuff all around a me. >> i don't like it she tried to eat it. >> well, thank you so much, lauren, great to see you. >> yes. >> hopefully we won't have another one at least anytime soon. >> 7:27. we will be right back.
7:28 am
7:29 am
7:30 am
look at this new born baby, rough timing here, meet the local mom who gave birth on the side of the road because her baby decided to come at a bad time. man, caught on the highway, the pennsylvania turnpike, backed up, they were caught here for 30 hours, on a bus. we have the the temple
7:31 am
gymnastics team here with the coach, they were stranded on that turnpike for 30 hours, can you imagine. >> it seems like they are having fun. >> they are in their 20's and they are young and having fun. sue, real quickly here, what is the temperature like right now. >> the temperature is in the mid 20's. >> yeah. >> some of the suburbs, we have had teens, so bus stop buddy is bundled up. playing out in the snow. just about every school is off. seven out of ten. is there the exact number. 25 degrees to answer your question. and there is no wind chill. and there is not much win. so we have temperatures in the teens to the north of us, 18 in reading, 15 in trenton. eight in millville. and right now. and then the planner is for a high of 36 degrees. we will have a chance to do a little bit of melting today and then this is as soon as the sunsets and temperature drop below freezing, everything will freeze up all over again. that is the cycle after a storm like this sunset time is
7:32 am
5:11, bob kelly. >> good morning, sue, good morning, everybody. 7:31. bun a rough go. first folks, it could be worse, look at this guy here headfirst in the the snowdrift right here, along route 309, right near or villa. so icy conditions. already delayed. take your time. for many it is first time you are driving the car since the storm hit . an accident on the ramps from route 07 to 295. accident in both directions on the extension between mid county and lansdale, and here's the latest from september, no serve is on the norristown line between bryn mawr and norristown, all of the regional rails are attempting full service but already delays up to about a half an hour, watch for the slippery platforms, the the stairs, and there is limited parking spots at all of the septa stations, mike and alex, back over to you. i'm looking up and down my twitter feed here.
7:33 am
fishtown, i need a plow. hey ryan in the control room i'm sending you a bunch of tweet is here. lets get our streets commissioner on the phone right now, hey, don, welcome to "good day philadelphia" again. >> how are you mike. >> i'm fine. of course, on a day like today i'm getting tweet after tweet, in plow down my street but i know you are out there the. i see the plows and big dump trucks with snow taking snow off to different places. you are plowing. what can i say to my friend on twitter. >> well, a storm of this magnitude, it is real difficult, mike. the the situation happens where the storm comes, we have some streets that were serviceable in the beginning of the storm and after they were serviced we had another 12 inches of snow. then we had wind drifts that took some neighborhoods up to 39 inches, totallal when you add snowdrifts. it is a continuous battle.
7:34 am
we will tell resident in the storm of this magnitude it tease us 27 hours to get to every street. >> seventy-two hours to get to everybody, right. >> to everyone, exactly. our main focus initially is those primary and secondary roads to get septa up and running. also, primary to get these secondary streets opened so individuals can get to work. the then and these other streets are a challenge for us with this accumulation of 22 inches. where we're still turning at it. we're not neglecting anyone. it is a battle. we have been out there since the first flake and we are still battling today. >> and, in the control room, tell me where this street is. this is in west philadelphia. this is a live shot, thinks a street that needs to be plowed. it it does than the look like it has been plowed, maybe. >> i do see that.
7:35 am
it looks like it may have been plowed. you see snow pushed up, that is a plow went through, early. >> the the plow did that. >> exactly, exactly. so these are streets that we are talking about that may have gotten serviced at the beginning of the storm but then received another foot of snow just after. but the actual snow pile near the the car shows a plow did go through there at some point. >> look the at this guy double park. that is a challenge. some neighborhoods where parking is a challenge, we had individuals who impede our progress at times. we had to make ways to get through blocks where you become on the back end. it was a difficult storm, just from the the length of the storm, again, it started on friday, and it didn't end until midnight sunday. so it was a challenge again, our responsibility is to the citizens of
7:36 am
philadelphia our responsibility is to try to make these streets as safe as possible. we're still plowing. we have 200 pieces of equipment out lifting the snow, that have been pushed on the corners to clear these storm drains. it is a process. this being the fourth largest snowstorm in our history i think we have done good so far but we are trying to make sure everyone has service we should have. >> again, control room, this is south philadelphia, can you give me a street here because this thing look like a mess. the also, don real quickly i was talking to a guy on market street this morning. they say that they are putting the the snow into giant dump trucks and taking to it port richmond is that accurate. >> i think i lost don. >> hello. >> are we -- i see dump trucks going by with absolutely loaded to the rim with snow, in the dump trucks, where do
7:37 am
you take all that snow. >> we have designated locations throughout the city, that we identified place that he is we can dump the snow, some city installations, some isolations are places that we work with other departments to secure. again you saw we a snow melter out there to melt some of this snow. it is a type of storm you have to pull out all stops and address everything from every angle. snow melts hasn't been used in over 16 years and we had to bureau that from a particular department and we are looking at ways to remove this snow as soon as possible but dump trucks hauling the the snow, snow melter, the 200 crews, and other aspects. >> i want to see this snow melter can you bring it by fourth and market, i want to use it. >> it was at fourth and market last night. >> i want to physically use it myself. >> it is really cool. >> that is something we will try to do different.
7:38 am
we are trying to do anything and everything possible to remove this snow. streets like you are showing, are streets we will be working at for next day or so trying to get these streets cleared. it is a challenge. >> good luck to you. i know you have been on the job for about two weeks now. >> about two weeks now, yes. >> welcome. good luck to you today. 7:38. we will take a quick break. we will go out to the streets when we come back.
7:39 am
7:40 am
7:41 am
come to, please plow my street. >> there are so many areas. they are saying we need help out here. >> we will get to south philadelphia a then we will take care of the other sections of the city. there is jen. >> hey, here's what i want to say. there is some pretty bad road, pretty bad streets. like this is, this is the 2600 block of south hicks street. and this is, a mess. like the streets commissioner said you can see a plow went through at some point but also like you said there was then half a blizzard that came afterwards. but mike the the photographer and i have been seeing is that number one, this was an epic, record snowfall. we all know that right.
7:42 am
so look at this. this is shunk. i mean in years past a road like this this would not have been cleared for a week or more. we used to do what is bugging you stories and come out here. this type of the road was never, ever cleared. so there are many, many side roads, that are cleared. then there is roads like this that are not clear. i think we have talked to a couple people around this area of south philadelphia specifically who said that they put their car in a lot because sue said this would happen or they park on the end so they tried to get out easier. the the news, i keep saying it, it is pretty good, and pretty bad. >> hey jen, backup, i'm so oldy remember john street administration. >> yes, yes. >> reporter: didn't he create the little bit i plow that could go down a street that you can go down the street like that. where are they now. >> reporter: for tv because people are tweeting us streets like this we are seeing these.

the wildwoods got a lot of national attention. >> we were showing videos of the flooding going own there. we have north wildwood mayor patrick on the phone. >> mr. mayor. >> why i, good morning. >> what does it look like there. >> it is a a beautiful day at the shore. sunnies out. the ocean has calmed down. we just to have start the clean up now. >> we are looking at the flooding here. storm surge was a food higher than sandy. >> it was, yeah. on at day morning, and that is really what was unexpected,
7:47 am
saturday morning as that tide came in we expect it to come in at eight and a half feet which would have been a half foot under what we saw during sandy, it ended up, coming this to about nine and a half foot, a half of food over what we saw during sandy. that doesn't sound like a lot six to 10 inches but that is the difference between water, coming into some of the lower setting homes or not. that is what we started to experience on saturday morning. >> was water coming from the ocean or from the bay. >> you know that was also something that was different during her kane sandy, then saturday. during hurricane sandy, it was almost exclusively water coming up from the bay. just because of the way, hurricane sandy hit the coast. during this northeast to ter we actually started flooding first up by the light house and it is at the very northeastern point of the island. so the nor'easter that close
7:48 am
and intensified we were getting 60 plus mile an hour gusts from the north east, driving waves, over our sea wall. so we started to get ocean water flooding, early which was then, compounded as the bay levels rose. >> here's another thing that was mentioned over the weekend, governor christie said that you know, if the shore towns would just build up these dunes, some resisted building dunes, we wouldn't have this problem. is what your reaction to that. >> i will say north wildwood is very fortunate in that about seven or eight years ago the army core of engineers completed a sea wall on our northeast section a mile and a quarter long. without that sea wall this storm would have been much, much worse for us. that really protected a huge part of the town. likewise our dunes, while they took a major beating during this storm, that helped, they helped tremendously. the obviously dunes and sea walls will not stop the bay from coming up but they do
7:49 am
their job on the ocean, there is no question bit because had this storm hit us in the years before we had our full engineered beach, this storm would have been absolutely devastating. >> mr. mayor still when we're looking at this damage, it still looks bad. we have to say some resident who say we don't like the fact that governor christie made it seem like it is not the so bad. >> i think that there was some misunderstanding and miscommunication there first, i don't think the the state realized what was going on, on the ground on saturday morning. i think it was somewhat localized. the level that we saw, a apparently were localized to avalon, south, through cape may. but tide gauges don't like. i know wildwood and other areas exceeded sandy and on the ground, that we agreed
7:50 am
with those gauges because that is what we were seeingy don't want to interrupt you but you can tell that the governor did not go down to the wildwood because he never would have said hey lets all go out and enjoy this sunday, had he seen this? he undoubt thely did not go far enough south to see all this flood damage and if we knew it was this bad sad day morning because we had it live on our air. >> yes, i saw the the fox 29 van all over town saturday morning during the storm. >> apparently the governor wasn't watching us because we had video footage to prove that things were bad in the wildwoods, in margate, and all the way down the shore. >> have you talked to governor christie has he called you, reached out to you. >> i have not spoken with the governor directly. i have spoken to several mens of his staff, but we are expecting lieutenant governor and commissioner of the dep

8:11 am
you may know what it's like to deal with high... and low blood sugar. januvia (sitagliptin) is a once-daily pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar. januvia works when your blood sugar is high and works less when your blood sugar is low, because it works by enhancing your body's own ability to lower blood sugar. plus januvia, by itself, is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). januvia should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. tell your doctor if you have a history of pancreatitis. serious side effects can happen, including pancreatitis which may be severe and lead to death. stop taking januvia and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area which may be
8:12 am
pancreatitis. tell your doctor right away and stop taking januvia if you have an allergic reaction that causes swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or affects your breathing or causes rash or hives. kidney problems sometimes requiring dialysis have been reported. some people may develop severe joint pain. call your doctor if this happens. using januvia with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. to reduce the risk, your doctor may prescribe a lower dose of the sulfonylurea or insulin. your doctor may do blood tests before and during treatment to check your kidneys. if you have kidney problems a lower dose may be prescribed. side effects may include upper respiratory tract infection, stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, and headache. for help lowering your blood sugar talk to your doctor about januvia. ♪ i had an injury to my neck. it wasn't as serious injury it was a herniated disc. anything that could go wrong went wrong. i've been in the hospital twenty three times since.
