trump. >> there are those who say melania trump stole the show, on the first night of the republican convention in cleveland last night, but that may not be all that she stole, striking similarity between her speech and one michelle obama gave in 2008. well this week cleveland, next week it is our turn getting ready to maintain law, order and peace at dnc here in philadelphia with less than a week until convention here and how police are planning to keep everyone safe. what was that yesterday afternoon? major damage left behind by powerful storms, trees, power lines down, leaving lots of clean up ahead of today. you will hear chain saw all over delaware county. the it is july 19th, 2016. bob's on vacation sue doing double duty. >> mike called me yesterday and was like take a look outside. >> i said okay. >> things were going, not
well. >> it came right on time we said two or 3:00 and that is when storms rolled through with a lot of lightening yesterday but the result will be, lower humidity. >> bought full yesterday evening. >> look at the sunrise. >> sunrise. >> sunset. >> all right. your sound track will be completed later on in the ram, right now just check the number of the day. you guys are good. we have an eight out of ten in your weather by numbers. still getting rid of humidity but not too muggy, bus stop buddy is readied for a lovely day outside which is why you cannot forget that sun screen. temperatures in the 60's and 70's in philadelphia a, it is, the not raining anymore. all of those thunderstorms moved off shore with the cold front and we are looking at a gorgeous scene over the platt bridge, sky there, very distracting i would imagine for drivers but everybody seems to be behaving themselves.
74 degrees with 79 percent relative humidity at the moment. we are close to 90 degrees. we may make to it 90 which would extend the heat wave by one more day but you will feel the difference, not as humid with the sunset time at 8:26. that is a look at your weather authority forecast, we are checking traffic as well as the sun comes up and we will get ready for some sun glare this morning. it is not there just yet but we are looking at the schuylkill expressway at spring garden and everybody is moving crust fine. the roosevelt boulevard heading in the city, not as hazy as it was so that is a good thing and not too much traffic just yet. phillies play a begins marlins again 7:05 at citizens bank park extra traffic in south philadelphia, mike and alex later this evening. search is on for group of men who broke in the elderly man's home. >> just horrible. police say it happened in the somerton section of north
philadelphia verree road. >> steve keeley is live with what we know so far, steve. >> reporter: you can see verree road is a very big, busy road and that is the shocking thing. you wouldn't think somebody has guts to break in the house right after midnight right in the middle of the this block and this is busy 24/7. we have been on this road for previous stories. double, double yellow lines that is how busy traffic is here in the street here. we are looking at the house where cadillac is and most people use side doors as their main doors and, you may, and and three guys burst through that door and waking up the eight three-year old man who lived alone here at the time. they shook him, threatened him, got some cash, got his phone and then even took the ring off his finger and got away. fortunately unlike the previous cases, recently where elderly victims have become
burglarized and beat up they didn't harm this 38 year-old man likely a military veteran as well. that is the good news. i'm remembering a 96 year-old lady roughed up last week by guy in the cobra, radar detector hat who i will look for in my next vacation because that is how angry we all get when we see cases like this but this guy just scared, not roughed up, he is okay, and hopefully family members, younger family members. but a sadly what they will do is look to see if they had any work done, anybody mow his lawn, did anybody do any kind of work for him that may know him and know he would live alone here and maybe a good victim. they stole his prescription drugs and hopefully get new prescriptions but another sad case of an elderly person roughed up in the middle of the night here in philadelphia. >> ridiculous. >> 6:04. first night of the republican national convention is in the
history books in cleveland this comes after a wild afternoon session that rang in proceedings at quicken loans arena there in cleveland. >> anti trump delegates wanted to have a state by state roll call vote on the convention rules but the g.o.p., the brass, top folks there passed the rules anyway on the second attempt. other big head line a speech from melania trump the wife of the nominee donald trump. >> and barack and i were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond, that you do what you say you are going to do. from the outset my parents impressed on me the values thaw work hard for what you want in life. that your word is your bond. you do what you say and you keep your promise. >> a lot of people are talking
about the similarities in the speech. so we will have more on both speeches coming up in ten minutes. >> i was shocked there for a second because i said here's michelle obama's head popped up. >> some people are saying it is the same so they think she copying the phrase. >> there was one phrase out of the 26 word she used in that paragraph, 22 of them came from michelle obama's speech, they were saying similar things. >> today is day two and the theme today is make american -- well, make america work again. make america work again. notable among scheduled speakers, new jersey governor chris christie, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell, house speaker paul ryan, former presidential candidate ben carson and within of the donald trump's sons, well, donald trump, junior. we will talk about that governor christie. we have questions about how he feels coming to the convention not being the pick. >> not being the vp.

dignitaries, public and deal with what could be massive protests here. >> i would like people to express their first amendment right and not calling police officers every name in the book but even if we cannot accomplish that at least not we would resort to any type of violence or destruction of property, because we have a pretty, significant job to do. we have to protect the city, the public, protesters, police officers and the community and let us not forget we have community to protect outside the scope of this dnc. >> officials have issued a week long ban on large trucks and tractor trailers from i-95 and 295. you also won't be allowed to park in the center median right along south broad street. travel will be tightly restrict around the wells fargo center as well and of course, guys in the wake of the dallas and baton rouge incident, commissioner ross

back and forth for theh, shouting matches to start the evening obsession who he blaming for starting it all. workers at the airport, are planning, later today to announce their plans. will they strike. or not as democrats come to philadelphia over the weekend. scary moments when a elderly man wakes up to men break nothing to his home what they got away with and what police are looking for to track down the suspect. it is 6:30. july the 19th, 2016. so as we go to sue serio, i
want to you craft a better entrance for your weather cast here. would i suggest look to the trump, yes, donald trump, and something like this. this is how he makes his entrance at republican national convention to introduce his wife. now is his back. it looks like his back is to the audience but then walks forward. >> beautiful silhouette. look at how the teleprompter a and mike rise up, and then these wife came out to give the speech. >> all right sue, take it away. >> this is it. >> well, it is bus stop budd which his boring, and it is another one. it is safe to come out. it is going to be belter later on. it will be desired to spend
the day outside, and now we have yet to clear all of the clouds from our cold front; and one little thunderstorm there, heading toward washington d.c. and not toward us, we have sunshine and you can still see included around and sun glare, is visible. 74 degrees 79 percent relative humidity and heading up to 89 degrees and your sunset at a nice long day to enjoy. that is your planner for tuesday, and let's get to the roads, with a look at the schuylkill expressway, right around the conshohocken curve, and it is slow go there, this morning. allow a lot of extra time if that is your route. an accident on the pennsylvania turnpike southbound near valley forge road has the right lane blocked, so far things are moving slowly but that might slow you down. phillies play tonight at 7:05 at marlins once again and all extra extra traffic around the
stadium complex, as we call it. >> complex, yeah. >> 6:33. an eight three-year old man, awakened during the night after a group of men break into his northeast philadelphia home and rob it. it seems like he goes to parx casino. >> steve what did you hear about this might be related about the fact he was over there. >> reporter: when lou at verree road you see how busy it is. nobody just decides let me go to one of the busiest roads in all of northeast philadelphia where there are a lot of twin duplexes and pick one at random in the middle of the block and decide to burst door down and hope something is on the other side. what we have learned thinks eight three-year old man is a frequent visitor to parx casino and had probably just won i don't want to say how much money. police are saying. that just won hundreds of dollars let's say sunday, his last visit there, maybe one of his winning visits among many visits and question is was he followed home.
he drives there in his car. he has a lot of little ticket that you you see given to drivers when they valet park their car. did somebody see him? was he talking like people do bragging after winning and then make himself a target or someone see him cashing in the chips or hit a big slot machine win a and then wonder what he was driving and how he got there and where he lived. he went there sunday. these guys then strike machine right after midnight into tuesday and they burst down that door. probably make it out from here even though we are a distance a way fingerprint dust on the door. police hoping to pull a print. three guys burst through the thing. only good parties they didn't rough him up but they took his cash, they take his phone and hopefully they can trace back because these guys are stupid enough to steel cell fence all the time that has gps and police can track it down. they even took the ring off his finger. rip a ring of eight three-year old man's finger.
at least he is okay unlike a lot of people we see roughed up during home invasions. i guess they were satisfied they got enough and got away. police hoping maybe to get a print. hoping maybe some pictures of somebody getting a real close-up look at this guy over at parx who has great surveillance and then maybe nab these guys. this is a frequent crime. if you go in the casino don't make a show of it. get out safely. make sure nobody is behind you following you. >> you have to be aware of your surroundings for sure. 6:35. thanks, steve. well, lots of drama for the first day of the republican national convention. how long has this cam paper been going. >> what an entrance, how about this for our show. it looks like he is back but he is looking right into the camera there. >> it is a silhouette. >> that is back for a second. >> and then the prompters pull up. >> now the podium.

taughted as maybe our next attorney general. present law requires each parties presidential nominee to have his transition chief begin finding a cabinet at least six months before the general election chris christie has led trump's transition team since may. the governor says that he and the billion air have never discussed the position of the attorney general but that he would gladly serve on any cabinet position trump asked him to accept. if he is on the transition team, would he transition himself into the ag spot? >> i'm for safety, security for every citizen and i suspect that he will pick an attorney general that will say the exact same thing and... and will take action, will take action that will back that up. >> chris christie did say he was disappointed but was not discontent about trump
