tv   Good Day Philadelphia at 7A  FOX  July 5, 2016 7:00am-9:00am EDT

7:00 am
morning. and it is not only the trains causing traveling problems a flash flood watch is in effect as a inch of rainfalls overnight, with more coming. and sue serio tells us when it will end. plus, a attack on a delaware neighborhood. >> it is just shocking to me. it really is. >> two women abduct just hours apart how they were able to fight off their attacker. and, not even the rain can stop a good party, thousands gathered to celebrate our nation's birthday, a celebration that ended with a bang. straight up 7:00 o'clock, sue serio, give us an update. >> it is going to end. it will end before the end of the day. >> really. >> we will see sunshine. it will start getting hot. >> what is the number. >> we will go with the six because it has been such a messy morning but end of the day, you will be sticky and humid, so 70's right now, raised umbrella.
7:01 am
you will be able to use the backyard eventually. we will see heavy rain moving through central delaware, place that has gotten hit hard these morning, ander place cumberland county in new jersey and more heavy rain headed toward jersey shore where it has been a rough morning there. that is where flash flood watch continues in the highlighted counties until 10:00 a.m. right now in philadelphia 74 degrees and rain has stopped here in olde city. we have 10 miles an hour breeze out of the west southwest but 93 percent relative humidity. by lunchtime at latest we will see sunshine from behind those clouds. most of the rain is out of here by then. eighty-eight is the high temperature. sunset time 8:32. we have our second heat wave on the way. we will tell you all bit coming up. bob kelly. >> of course, rain not cooperating with the roadways, live look in a second at an accident, second one of the morning on i-95. here's a tweet that popped out second train out of fox chase,
7:02 am
is stacked and pack and there is four more stops to go, that is from tj calendar what he is seeing on twitter. expect crowded conditions close tore center city. trains are empty this is beginning of the line, closer they get right here for example like inard more, fox chase where we are starting to see that crowding. it is a modified saturday schedule which translates into trains every 30 minutes instead of the 20810 minutes. make sure you have the correct schedule, you can down load that at septa.org. i have put a link to that schedule on my facebook and twitter pages. a couple of alternates. every station has a suggested alternate to get you into downtown. it may be one bus and one trolley, maybe two buses, connecting with another trolley, but there are alternates for every station on septa's web site. if you are going to park here are spots with additional parking spots available, until
7:03 am
further notice until we can get this whole thing straightened out. mike and alex, back to you. >> okay. art a more station, should we start in fairmount. >> that is where steve keeley is right now, hi there steve. >> reporter: oddly only problem so far we have seen here, this guy, who not so smartly walked across tracks like you are not supposed to do, jaywalk ago cross railroad tracks but right in front of the couple police officers. the these police are stationed. he is getting cited right now. that is the only problem. we have not had one complaint from everybody. everybody is following news and they realize if i want to get a seat, get here earlier and expect train to be later like bobbies saying and i will not get in any trouble at work because they necessity is there a big problem and we are dealing witt as it comes. we have seen one train go by like i mentioned in the tease, express style, didn't stop, bypassed these folks. i expected it to be completely full.
7:04 am
no, the last car was completely empty, maybe nobody knew that the car was empty and guy said we will bypass, one of these last stations, close to the city like we keep saying, this will probably be the hardest part to get a seat on the rails because most of them are taken up by people further out. i hear some engine down on the train but no headlights in sight. it never happens live. i was asking if kinchen had a live train. maybe we are seeing the lull to expect trains running every hour, but we had several going by earlier, and we popped on there and saw a lot of full seats. folks, this will not be a morning where you can stick your lap top bag next to you and purse and expect nobody to sit down. be extra kind, extra courteous and expect it to be like an airplane. you don't see one empty seat on the airplane anymore because airplanes don't want to fly, they want to make every dollar out of every seat and they don't fly unless they can fill the seat up and that is what it is like for septa for time being and maybe even
7:05 am
worse as we get out of the peak vacation week in the summer which is fourth of july week. it was a dream drive here from south philadelphia into new jersey. it was like a holiday there was no one on the 42, bridges, a quick ride up here. i said that tells you that so many people are on vacation this week. >> i want to challenge you now. you just should keep talking until the train comes in i could do that because i'm talking to you, if i'm talking to you, we can talk forever, you know, have i ever covered an election story. how many times have you say presumptive talking about the nominees. i thought every time i toss to you i will say presumptive broadcast pioneer hall of famer, mike jerrick. i will to have say it longer because the conventions are coming up. presumptive will be washed away, but, how long before the broadcast pioneer hall of fame, puts you, it is like babe ruth is not in the hall of fame. i call you the pete rose of
7:06 am
the broadcast pioneer hall of fame. maybe is there something there keeping voters from electing you like pete rose. i don't know. i look at some of these hall of famers, hurricane schwartz is in the broadcast pioneers, but mike jerrick. >> sue you serio is. i went to her ceremony. >> i have not been asked to be a broadcast pioneers hall of fame. >> really. >> there are convicted criminals in the broadcast pioneers hall of fame, o.j. simpson, nfl hall of fame but you are not the. >> what did you do? >> i haven't been here that long. you have to be here your whole career, is that what you have to do. >> reporter: you have been here longer then a lot of people in that hall of shame, we will call it, until you are in there. >> how about that. >> i got a rap so we will not talk until i have a train. kinchen. the wait, wait, we dit, mike. >> wait, it will be coming. >> ryan in the control room do we wait for this train.
7:07 am
>> all right. >> by the way, ryan is the greatest person in the control room. super calm, yeah, let it come in. let it come in. >> you are right. >> like another guy jaywalking right in front of the train. >> there you go. >> are the officers right there. >> look at the sign, danger. look at this. >> my gosh. >> yes. >> we have some breaking news. these trains, job is not hard enough for train conductor, and beep his horn. he waits for the train, almost like he was waiting for a train to get by on television. is there greg doug the squat down, too tall for windows. i don't see a empty seat. we will get a good thing we have positioned ourself on the end line here, completely full, one empty seat, one guy standing but that might mean he is getting off. we will get the last train here and look both ways so you will see on both sides, one way i don't see anybody.
7:08 am
>> get out of my face. >> we will go on the other one then. >> yes. >> one seat here to the left, and you are not supposed to look. you can see how crowded these trains are. thinks like if we had a live shot and we had a audience, it would be a sellout for mike and alex show. thinks crowd we will get for quincy's show. >> yes. >> we have a guy here we will follow this guy. greg, come on down here, squat, walk follow these people to find an empty seat. >> here we go. we are at fernrock where bruce gordon and bob kelly told us if you are closer to the city. look at this guy. come on over here, greg we have people standing this guy gave up and now going back. there are people on these trains that have to stand room only, sro on the septa line, so there you go, we did it.
7:09 am
we did it. >> you know what mike, here comes dave with another train. >> another train. >> it continues. >> dave has a train. >> one train to another. >> yes. >> we have a train. >> train right there you can see coming through, folks getting ready to go. sir real quick, what have you thought about this whole thing here. >> not much to say about it, you just have to go bit. it can be frustrating. >> reporter: did you get out here early. >> yes, earlier station so i can hopefully get in and find a seat. >> she's told to go to the different side to get inside this train here a lot of folks, they got out here earlier. we talk to people about 30 minutes earlier, so not too bad, and we saw some trains earlier this morning that were pretty empty as well. thing we saw people coming, maybe a little bit later. well, not this one, one we saw
7:10 am
earlier, was much earlier this morning, but these are packed up here. take a look here, chris, pan up and show the folks. there is standing room only here, and this train is still being filled up as we come back down. we will come back down to the platform here chris and show you people are still going on. they had to go back. that woman we were just talking to had to actually go further. you see her walking down to try to get on to one of the trains. standing room only on this car, likely the cars, from down here, woman right there that just came out of the rest room can you imagine how upset he would be if he missed this train. this is one of the things that is flute thing. you didn't know how it would go until we see it happening. this woman is not get together train. the she's just taking pictures or waiting for next one.
7:11 am
that could be a long wait. one more shot here of just standing room only. we have folks, going downtown, not really holding on. there is no railing to hold on. just standing room only here. this car here. people standing up. people standing up. seats full in this one, this one, this one, and this one, and this one, and this one, and that is a wrap on a train, well, train 160 out of ardmore. >> it has left the station. >> 7:11. a lot of people standing than those trains this morning. in delaware wilmington police are investigating the shooting of the teenager. >> authorities say a 15 year-old was shot in the head just before 11:00 last night. detectives are working the crime scene at clifford brown walk and chairman street in the early morning hours. no motive,. >> in chester police are investigating a fatal shooting happened around their and kerlin street when office's arrived yesterday evening they found a older model, crown victoria still turned on and

7:14 am
>> you take a look, it stems from the star, a red star he used, talking about hillary clinton, chris murphy, what is it. >> take a look for yourself. here it is, trump used car with six-point and one of the text describing hillary clinton as quote the most corrupt candidate ever. trump's critics say star looked like a star of david, his advisors say nobody from the campaign was intending to be anti sematic. star was deleted and replaced with a circle. trump says this is all a misunderstanding, he responded with this quote dishonest media is trying their absolute best to depict a star in the tweet as a star of david rather than a sheriff's star or plane star. hillary clinton calls trump's use of the star disturbing and says it should be a concern to voter. interesting. >> now they are talking about stars. >> yeah. >> okay. >> i mean it would be inappropriate if he had star of david on there.
7:15 am
he is always blaming the media. >> star of david is blue and white, it looks like a sheriff's star with me not the that i'm siding with donald trump. bernie sanders is good for businesses specially at a pennsylvania campground. >> just outside philadelphia, getting booked by sanders supporters planning to protest during this month's dnc. all 200 campsites at four seasons in pilesgrove, new jersey has been book. it is usually just reserved during holidays and during the pope's visit to philadelphia. >> we're just days away from that convention sue serio. >> i'm starting to feeling it, seeing dnc donkeys around town in the different streets. >> they are coming. >> they are every where. >> i walk by one yesterday. >> we have a flood advisory continuing for about a half an hour, in the area that have gotten the most rain, this morning and radar is here to show you, we will look at
7:16 am
radar, and show you that. we have to look at the philly forecast today with 85 degrees at game time today's game time is 7:05. let's hope we have a same kind of outcome meaning that we will win. be prepared for a muggy night. rain will be gone, completely by the time it is game time tonight. is there radar. and it is showing the heaviest rain once again moving through kent county, delaware right across the bay i should say into southern new jersey, cumberland county, cape may county, part of the atlantic county of been particularly hard hit with heavy downpours. that is what we will see the highest rainfall totals when all is said and done for this morning's rain. we will zoom in closer, just south of dover, delaware, we're seeing heavy rain around magnolia and then across, to the very heavy rain, in cumberland county, cape may county, dennis, corbin city in atlantic county. philadelphia we are seeing rain and umbrellas still up
7:17 am
outside of our block but it is not very heavy rain. so it is muggy, temperatures in the mid 70's and we are heading to a high of 88 degrees once the sunnies out in full force and rain is gone. then we will start with heat and humidity tomorrow, thursday, friday, saturday, and 90's all four days, a cold front comes through on, saturday, and then hopefully takes the humidity away by sunday. that is your seven day forecast, bob kelly, it has been a interesting morning so far, it is not any less interesting between problems on the rails and roads mother nature not cooperating jammed solid on i-95 from the betsy ross bridge into center city because of this accident with only one lane squeezing on by. tractor trailer can make out the beginning of the front of that tractor trailer. this is right underneath ben franklin bridge here in center city philadelphia so we're jammed solid there. here's your numbers on a normal day 65,000 seats
7:18 am
available on the regional rails, today and even definitely we are only dealing with 35,000 seats and we have been seeing once that train hits capacity it will bypass the future stops. you will see crowded conditions, closer you get to the the city, now the evening rush should be interesting because, we have had chances to pick up folks all along the line here bringing them into center city. evening rush hour is going to be exactly the opposite. everyone is going to originate at only one of the three big stations trying to get back home. so your game plan this morning is going to have to be different for that commute back home. there are shuttle buses until further notice on the cynwyd line, they are using those trains on the other lines, in order to boost the will volume, extra trains and free parking on both the market frank for line and subway, free parking at frankford transportation terminal. basically it is a modified saturday schedule with trains
7:19 am
running every 30 minutes as opposed to the normal 2080 minutes. make sure you have the current schedule. down load that at septa.org. i have put a link to the schedule on my facebook and twitter pages. alex, back to you. oh, look at that, lot at fire work last night, weather did not stop the fire works. that was biggest question. have fire works still happening. are fire works still happening? they did. there were low clouds and still pretty cool to see. philly pops had to cancel their performance because of the rain but many other events went on as scheduled as people partied in the rain. so one of the stars from the hit musical hamilton made an appearance in the celebration of the freedom event reading declaration of independent prior to last night's concert. leslie odom, junior. >> in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve a political ban which has connected them with another. >> he was also presented with the key to independent hall, for all of the work he has done on broadway but you for
7:20 am
work he has done right here in the city of philadelphia because he fridays this area. then lets move to the parkway where there was a concert and leon bridges performed. >> ♪ >> of course, while we love leon bridges we have a old school feel and he is wearing red, white and blue. he is very sweet. so, tense of thus oz have people turned out to see him perform his songs. he was also at root's picnic. he will be big. i know it. also the o.j.'s perform. a lot of great stuff. yazz the greatest, we will recap and especially one moment that people are talking about. 7:20. no backup plan, the reason some experts are saying european companies are not thinking about your future after the brexit vote. it is back to work but for

7:25 am
there is no plan b for so many companies right now, easy jet ryan air, they are warning they are like 70 percent of our flights are international flights when they are looking at business coming to, and leaving. what do they do? so there is a lot of question marks right now. you are feeling it in your 401k, going up and down and big ways and i don't think we will have an answer anytime soon. >> i don't know what to take away from this report, lauren. >> reporter: that is probably the whole point. >> stumbling around in the dark. >> we are stumbling around in the dark. >> the guy who was in charge, basically is getting out and going to leave, yeah. >> yes. >> i'm out. >> what are we supposed to do. >> this is a huge economy. >> well, that will be the story for the rest of the year, lauren, thank you, we will see you tomorrow. kevin durant will go to

7:30 am
the end of the heavier rain. we have been saying all morning ever since 4:00 a.m. this thing will be with us through about 8:00 and it will play out that way but we have a flash flood watch in effect until ten a m. we will see if the national weather service lifts that earlier. here in olde city, it is raining lightly at 75 degrees, with 90 percent relative humidity. not the a a good hair take. 88 degrees with the sunshine emerging pretty soon. we're down to 74 as cloud clear out completely, get ready for heat and humidity. we will have lot have of it for rest of the week and weekend too, details on that coming up in the seven day. >> good morning. 7:30 on this tuesday morning. speedometer readings slow gone from 95 south to cottman in center city. just opened the lanes from an earlier accident. rain is not helping during our morning rush hour. delays coming from new jersey, look at the work zones, where the ponding could be a little tough. we have about eight or one
7:31 am
lines now already with double digit delays here, time-wise, on your regional rail lines. a normal day 65,000 seats, until further notice we are only using 35,000 seats to get folks into center city. once those trains fill to capacity you will see them bypass. the evening rush could be tricky because we have 75 stations, trickling into the three main stations for the morning. once you get there today, to think about your commute home, everybody is going to original at these three, trying to get back out of downtown. the crowded conditions are occurring, closer you get to center city but each station has a suggested alternate depending upon where you are going. check with septa's web site. it could be one bus and one trolley will connect new to downtown. if you must drive there are plenty of parking spots that are extra and added. i have put links on facebook and twitter pages this morning, mike and alex, back
7:32 am
to you you. how many fewer seats. >> overall, 30,000 less seats. >> 30,000. >> 30,000 less seats across the board for each rush hour. >> because of the silver liners taken out of service. >> and these are the new cars. >> new ones, yeah. >> they have to fix those flaws. >> hey at least they are fixing it before it becomes a bigger problem. >> yes. >> the trains are full. we have been looking at a lot of trains and most of them are full. a lot of people are standing, standing room only in some of these cars. listen to this. >> be patient. this is very challenging for us. we have everybody working, to understand the problem and what the solution is. >> so, lets get septa's general manager up here with us. jeff, good to see you. thanks for being on "good day philadelphia". >> good morning, mike, alex. i just listened to bob. did he a good job complaining the situation. >> i guess we don't need you then, bye jeff, see you later.
7:33 am
>> no, this is a very tough situation for our customers. the new schedule we had to work like crazy over the three day weekend to put it together. it was going well, but now you are starting to see delays as this is really the heaviest time the peak of the peak. some trains are starting to get delayed substantially because it is just taking a long time to get people on to the train and get the train out of the station. >> what is wrong with these new cars. >> well, the main suspension system we're finding cracks in something called the equalizer beam, that is engineering talk but the point is, you know, we're very fortunate that our car inspector did a great job, was following up on something that didn't look right and over within 24 hour period we were able to determine we had a major problem, took everything out of service for silver liner five.
7:34 am
so, bad story today but fact that we didn't have any kind of a serious accident is a good thing if there is anything good from this. >> where are these cars made. >> hyundai road town, the shells and things were made overseas and shipped here and everything was assembled here in south philadelphia. i do want to say, you know, as bob mentioned, you know, especially the crowding on the way in the morning gets tough as you get closer to center city. we have strong service on the market frankford line, broad street line, norristown high speed line, sharon hill line, those are good alternate ways in the city. also or bus that he is connect with many lines. >> also the fact that you guys have more parking for people going to those other stations. >> yeah, we have put up a couple of parking options, we are not seeing them used yet. would i like to mention the
7:35 am
naval hospital we have 1600 free spaces added down near at&t station or paterson avenue. there are things, we have got parking spaces at festival pier along market frankford line and spring garden. we will be working on this. we are talking to other agencies trying to get more equipment, we are looking at other things that we could possibly do with buses. this whole situation, we will be react to go how customers have change their patterns. we will continue to work hard to get this as best as we can. we know this is an incredible disruption for our customers and we are doing everything we can. >> even though you are making changes this is something we should get used to because it will take all summer. >> well, you know, engineers are working feverishly on this. possibilities some that some of the cars can get a faster fix but some of them do need a fairly sub standings part fabricated and made to be put
7:36 am
in the cars. it is a really tough situation. i know, mike. it is too early to say but we are going to work as hard as we can to get things back in order. >> at very least expect to be a little bit, to get used to it for a little while. >> for a little while and we want to let everybody know what is going on. we want to be completely transparent and continue to have all kind of coverage and we appreciate fox and others, giving us this chance to explain things. >> jeff, we appreciate the transparency, you are not hiding about this all and that is good. >> no. >> real quickly any other cities have these train cars and going through the same thing. >> well, colorado, denver has the same cars and they have the same suspension system. their cars have not been in service very long but certainly, you know, they are going to be looking at what is
7:37 am
going on to make sure that their cars are safe as well. >> i bet you are not very happy with the manufacturer this morning, jeff. >> what are you going to do. >> we will talk to you, maybe every day throughout the summer. >> get used to us. >> i will be available. >> thanks, jeff. >> 7:37. >> we have the receipt. >> for those cars. >> silver liners. >> if you don't have a receipt what do you get a store credit. >> store credit. >> okay. we have heard the saying everything sounds better when morgan freeman reads your name. >> some people have them as their gps guy. >> didn't he do hillary clinton's campaign ads. i'm pretty sure he is in one of the hillary clinton's campaign ads. i just said that twice. since morgan freeman was busy
