5:04 am

5:05 am
guys, not sleeping, this is wednesday morning, remind you, after the blizzard from the weekends, and look at all of this construction equipment. you have got this big bulldozer here, then straight down the sidewalk we are at 16th and mckean, they have the small little bulldozers, the bobcats, those kinds of things. and what they're doing is they're plowing a lot of these streets for the first time, believe it or not, and when they plow it, they've got to put the snow somewhere t looks like people are getting plowed in, a lot of these cars are going to have tough time digging out, then look here, right in the middle of the intersection big dump truck. and we mike was asking where are we dumping all of this? taking it to various points, then the trucks come back, see the snow peaking out of the top of the middle of the dump truck so they have it nearly full. i don't know how this driver knows how much snow he's got left to put in there. but they do. and they've got supervisor right behind them making sure everybody's safe and staying away. so, this might be going on, as kids are walking around all this stuff. during the school hours pretty
5:06 am
soon, as we approach the first time back to school. so here comes couple of guys loaded with snow, we will gave you a look at what's going on, then the other problem is, they had no trash pick up. but people didn't take their trash back into their houses, so there are smashed trash cans, empty trash cans all around the streets, so whole bunch of road hazards all around south philly, that's only because we've only been in south philly. i don't know if the entire city like that, but people didn't take their crash cans in. and the trash, and the snow, are competing for space, and there is very little space as you can see on the sidewalks. and it is quite a busy active scene out here. but i am telling you, nobody complaining about all of the noise because this is the first time they've seen a plow, and they're going to be happy maybe the first time to see the inside of their car in a while, like it van across the street, see the snow still on the windshield on the corner, snow all around him. can you see the windshield, chris? there go. that person obviously hasn't been driving at all. they have nice corner parking
5:07 am
spot. but you can see, it is not so nice, as we pull out from behind the telephone pole and you can see that guy will not be backing out of there any time unless they get the snow out of there, lauren, chris? >> thank you so much, steve keeley. and during the blizzard, philadelphia mayor jim kenney promised the city that all of the streets would be plowed, and cleaned up, by the end of today. but there is still a lot of work out there to be done. but we toss things out to dave kinchen out on the street, germantown mt. airy section to see what's going on out, there hey, dave? >> we actually moved over to west philadelphia. you know, we were here 24 hours ago and it looked a bit worse yesterday. here, definately passable, although, you still have some snow, and icy conditions, in the street. and the big thing is going to be hitting some of these spots, where people park, like this one right here. this is an area that could use a good plowing. we actually saw on our way from mt. airy to this area. we saw a crew working to clear
5:08 am
some of the parking areas, but that all depend on when these cars get out of the way, but again, a lot of folks just don't move because they've been off for several days. and they don't want to bother digging out. we are moving further up toward 52nd street here, again, you can see, it is all clear with the exception of where people would park on the side. so this is probably the next part of the operation where crews will come in like we saw on our way here and take care of the side streets, i should say, the parking areas where people park. but, so far, at least with larchwood, it is looking better, we are going to hit another street, addison, that one still needs some work. overall, some work still needed here in west philadelphia. from what we saw yesterday, the mayor said 80% of the streets are passable, as of yesterday, so crews are still working at it. back to you guys. >> dave kinchen, moving around, thank you so much for the update. >> and easier to move around a little bit. speaking of the storm, throughout the clean up from this past weekend winter storm, city encouraging residents to call 311 if they
5:09 am
need their street plowed. now we are hearing just how many people, in fact, use that number. the philly 311 system says it has received 21,000 calls so far due to the blizzards of 2016. that's eight times the norm. and it has received 6,000 more requests through social media. now, if you call and still haven't seen a plow, officials say hang onto your claim number, so workers can keep track of your request. >> city getting there. we're plowing and salting. streets departments been doing an incredible job, and it is a lot of miles to the streets, and city of philadelphia. >> and officials went on to say until crews can get to your streets, you can lends a hand too. like cleaning snow from storm drains, and fire hydrants. >> call in the extra equipment, front ends loaders, dump trucks, all will be around allentown this morning, and tonight, to help the crippled sit which snow removalment city officials say there are private contractors brought in to help expand snow removal operations, last night, they were busy along seventh street. signs were posted there
5:10 am
stating it was supposed to be cleared the night before. business owners and people living there say the city has been slow, but they did have to tackle 31 inches of snow. >> showed you, a lot of people coming to get a haircut, and you know, don't have anywhere to park. >> he said they were losing zombies. >> yep, lose a lot of business. >> we all got together, shoveled the whole street to get our vehicles out. >> convoy of trucks to clear the streets will start around 7:00 this morning and end around 7:00 tonight. >> today marks one year, the roof of the lemon lulu store fell in after bricks from building next-door hit t the collapse hurt three women who were inside at the time. a year later now, and one of them is suing, saying, she is still suffering. >> allison freedman said she has been in pain every single day since that accident. tomorrow, she has to have spinal fusion surgery. she will spend the next few days in the hospital, including, friday, which happens to be her birthday. >> it is really sad.

5:12 am
5:13 am
5:14 am
>> okay, so starting off this morning with a little bit of precipitation. it was supposed to be gone, by now, as of yesterday's computer models, but, you know, things change, and this was a slower moving cold front than we thought. so what we've got are some rain showers, moving through the area, including couple of snowflakes mixed in, probably in the upper atmosphere, not at the surface where it is above freezing, as you move down from philadelphia, through wilmington, through on the way to baltimore, northeastern maryland, we call the i95 corridor. other roadways affected,
5:15 am
garden state parkway, atlantic city expressway, with some light rain showers this morning. >> is it ville piles of snow, helped reduce them yesterday with philadelphia's high of 50 degrees, more lake march, than january. there you go. 41 degrees right now, in the city, right at freezing in mount pocono. so might have to watch out for black ice up in the higher elevations, 41 in dover, delaware, 43, in wildwood. watch raj hi, 41 degrees, about the past month, the average high of 40, so just tiny sign that we're getting closer to spring. tiny. 50 degrees yesterday. after 40 on monday. i think we'll probably have an afternoon temperature of 39 degrees. high already happened with probably end up being like 44,
5:16 am
45 degrees, which happened around midnight, 40 degrees tomorrow, for high temperature, which is right around average, then, at night, tonight, tomorrow night, and friday night, it looks like we will have re-freezing, so melt during the day, freeze at night. have to watch for black ice every morning, but by sunday and monday, getting into milder temperatures, with a chance of showers on monday. tuesday, look who it is, it is punxsutawney phil fill the groundhog. >> if he sees his shadow, i forget every year, something like that, talking about his shadow, and winter. >> six more weeks, blah p, blah, blah. >> good morning, 5:16. yes, we don't have any report of freezing, black ice, that is good news, however, all the melting that happened yesterday, leaving behind, some slushy snow here, and that's just as slippery at times, as some of the icy roadways, so don't get that false sense of security, again, some of the on and

here. this is little tiny chadwick street. what the people who live on chadwick street smartly did was park on the sidewalk both this direction, you see the cars on the sidewalk there, then in the other direction, and the reason they parked on the sidewalk, was because that allowed these plows and these bulldozers to get down their street finally and plow this street clear for the first time since friday. so they are very happy and the idea also parking on the sidewalk, that you notice, the people on the left, have their cars not plowed in, the people on the right, if we walk over, have their cars all plowed in. so it will be tough digging out, but once they dig out, they won't be stuck in the street like others were. and you can see, the mountains of snow here, being bulldozed up hi, and then toward the ride, you see dump truck down the street, which they're filling up pretty fast now. here is the problem. the kids in south philly maybe
