5:01 am
up toward north jersey and new york city even after that happens, we still have a lot of lingering flood conditions. we have to watch it driving around the dark this morning not only for flooded roadways but for trees that came down with these strong thunderstorms that came through overnight. it is easing up the rain in trenton but still raining and in ocean county where we are seeing war of it this morning in olde city, still damp, we had showers, heavy rain overnight. 72 degrees is our current temperature. sunrise time 5:53 but don't expect a lot of sunshine. we will see some throughout the day but chance of a pop up thunderstorm later on in the day as well. high of 88. it will tiehl still warmer then. that heat wave was broken yesterday with a high of 89, 90's in the future? we will let you know in the seven day forecast coming up but we have a lot to tiehl with right new bob kelly. >> it is one of the mornings where it is dangerous to be out there first of all we have
5:02 am
southbound lanes of i-95 closed right here underneath ben franklin bridge. what we are looking at is a jackknife tractor trailer. it happened about an hour or so ago in the height of the storms here through center city. here's a live look at the traffic from i-95 southbound, as we are approaching center city, penndot has all of the lanes blocked pushing everybody over on to the vine street expressway. if you every coming from northeast philadelphia everybody is forced in to center city here. look at this show, everybody trying to squeeze over from three lanes into the two off ramp lanes trying to get into center city. obviously big confusion here big time. coming south out of the northeast you are pushed on to the vine expressway. take that over to the schuylkill expressway, take that eastbound and you'll pick i895 back up in south philadelphia. that is route for gang back heading to the airport trying to get through downtown philadelphia again i-95 closed
5:03 am
with that jackknife tractor trailer right underneath ben franklin bridge. black horse pike at 42 freeway , this is the scene with jenny live in a moment where we have that electrical fire, arcing wires, it looks like everything is opened. they are allowing black horse pike to squeeze through, 42 freeway goes over and traffic is moving on the freeway, locally there could be some detours. we have flooding on the ramps from 295 to 42 in that bellmawr construction zone. watch for atlantic city expressway a down tree at route 54 in hammington. we will step aside here, two of our cameras down the shore you can see light shows going crazy dunn here outside of atlantic city but if you are heading out of the front door right now give yourself some plenty of extra time especially in the construction zones where it is difficult to see lane markings and we will update that i-95 closure next time around, karen and thomas
5:04 am
back over to you. 5:03. lets get tout blackwood new jersey are where crews are on the scene of the down wire creating a big fire, lets see what it is like right now, jenny, what is the latest. >> reporter: good morning. we have police fire and pse&g crews trying to get this situation under control live here along black horse pike at route 42 in blackwood. one lane gets by. this is southbound on black horse pike, the northbound lanes are closed near almond son avenue. pse&g working to deenergize the lines so fire crews can put oath these flames on the side of the road. police are letting that one lane of traffic go by this fire as a result of severe storms that swept through here between three and 4:00 this morning, heavy rainfall, constant lightening, earlier, people tweeted pictures of the flooding and now that the rain subsided this is the issue
5:05 am
clearly the aftermath, live wires on fire here in blackwood. so crews are on the scene working on this situation, again police want you to be careful heading through this area, again, north bound lanes here of black horse pike in blackwood, near route 42, that continues to be shut down, karen and thomas. >> yes, they will have a very busy morning, another example here why everybody need to be extra careful this morning when they walk outside. jenny, thank you. lets continue team coverage we don't have to tell you but it is down right messy. steve keeley has been roaming around. where are you near longport, new jersey steve. >> we are on ocean drive just over the bridge leaving ocean city and is there a fishing spotty know and we pulled over here in this parking lot and thanks to the sky light of atlantic city and, the lightening show that is kind of dying down, 10 minutes ago, wow, but you can almost see the menacing cloud, still
5:06 am
hanging over atlantic city and this storm looks like it is pushing out to sea but boy, when we were driving here as you see flashes of the lightening they were more every two, so lots of lightening and lots of rain, and ocean city kind of a lot of flooding in the intersection but we didn't sianni again it is dark we didn't see any major flooding in to houses or anything or cars, enveloped in the flooding. we can still see lightening to the left of the sky line which puts new ocean county, southern ocean county little he can harbor and to the right of atlantic city out to sea. is there a mother nature show. judging by all have the lights in the streets and casinos and all of the atlantic city lights and licensing port across no power outage at the shore despite all of the warnings about very strong, straight line wind. they got away with something here at the jersey shore at a time of the year when so many people are renting homes and
5:07 am
renting condo is here and really wouldn't know where to go in a house that they are not familiar with to keep safe if they got hit with something real severe like 60-mile an hour wind and things like that when they say get to the center, get to the basement and people up in condos four stories up and can't get to the basement because they are locked in, for a week in a condo four stories high with the view of the ocean or bay which puts you close to the wind with nothing break ago this wind before it hits the houses there. how about the report joe biden 's former vice-president hometown greenville delaware the most rain so far, seven and a half inches, since 5:00 p.m. sunday. greenville, delaware, a nice rural, lovely place seven and a half inches have rain in just hours. how do you deal with that in your sewage system greenville delaware finding out in the last few hours for sure. >> aloft pumps running and flooded basements in our area thank you.

5:15 am
rain but it is raining in cape may county and across the chan until lewis delaware as well but it is lighter rain there flash flood warning the area in green until 7:00, because the flooding as we know lingers after the rain ends an hour flood advisory continues as we will, it is a lot of it is expiring right now but we have to watch for that back bay flooding as steve mentioned at the shore. flash flood watch continues for possibility of, more pop up showers, and maybe even a thunderstorm, throughout the rest of this unsettled weather day, marginal risk of severe weather as well as most, you can see heavy rain pops out of here but this afternoon there are more scattered showers and thunderstorms popping up on the few future cast lingering in to tomorrow morning. we could have a stray shower or two. nothing as dramatic as what we have seen today but still kind of humid tomorrow. we will finally get a break from the humidity on wednesday for sure and then we will get more unsettled weather after. that but lets deal with one

5:19 am
and that hole got bigger. >> the ground collapsed and then after an hour later after that the ground opened up more >> you can see is there nothing underneath there and that will start caving. >> big question is who will fix it. cities water department tells us it is a private contractor but the contractor says it is not their job to repair it. they called the cities streets department when they discover the ground and that street was hallow out 17 feet deep. neighbors say they won't rest until they get crews out there to cover up the hole. we will continue to follow that one. lets go tout hatfield, montgomery county police are investigating a shooting that killed a 31 year-old man. >> here's what police say happened, there was a person who pulled the trigger who actually called 911 as well and waited until police got there and it all happened before might night on the 2400 block of east oroville a road, there was a disturbance, shooting, we don't know yet

5:32 am
vine street expressway into center city philadelphia so how do we get around that coming from the northeast? coming into downtown you are forced off to go west on the vine street expressway. from there pick up the schuylkill east to get you back in to south philadelphia and pick up i-95 to get down toward the airport. speaking of the airport some first couple trains out of the gay including the airport line on septa's regional rail line running with delays this morning because of the weather conditions, and some flooding here in, south philadelphia the broad street off ramp, into south philadelphia, flooded out, again, that is one stretch that always floods out when we get heavier rain and then into the neighborhood in new castle creek road flooded out at ford road route 82, also in wilmington, route 40, pulaski highway flooded out as well. we are waking up heading out front door there is high water every where, drains are blocked, watch construction zones like here in bellmawr 295 at 42 freeway, and black horse pike right at route 42

5:34 am
smoke out here once we get out on the scene we can hear crackling and actively burning and we hear or smell rubber burning on the scene. that is most obvious. torrential downpours, constant lightening strikes pounded this area for more than an hour this morning, that is when these wires ignited. while crews continue to clean up the scene police are letting one lane of traffic go by in each direction northbound and southbound here along black horse pike, we expect the road to fully reopened shortly, karen and thomas. crew did his a great job getting that under control another example as i mentioned to be careful, jenny, thank you. 5:34. we have severe conditions that are out there, certainly on the road, lots of ponding, flooding in many areas, basements are getting swamped right now. steve keeley has been driving around in this dicey driving. where are you now, what are you seeing, steve. >> reporter: you know how i
5:35 am
despise clicheness tv news which is over run with them but we will give you this take on one calm after the storm on the beach in margate. we are looking at start of the sunrise here. you can tell things or kay here because this street normally flood, it flood so much you can see in the sea wall they have cut a circle out so water can get back into the ocean. what happened was in the middle of the night when it was raining you see water cuts through sand and goes out and fills in here. what stops it from going to the ocean now? the controversial dune project that the people of margate for the with chris christie about. you can see why even with little sunlight you cannot see ocean now. these first floor people thought, you know we will not have our view off our first floor decks, pools by beach, dinner tables. over there to the right where you see lights, that is dune project and fact they have been able to keep working despite the storm is good news so you have a little kiddie
5:36 am
pool and when mike jerrick hangs out in margate thinks where he swims because he is guarantied no sharks and rip currents. safe spot. you will see him sitting lap deep in there occasionally, and that is the good news. no big flooding. we went on another place where we have flooding in margate, nothing there either. so good news for the shore, they narrowly missed this one. greg will go up the steps as we wrap up our hit and we will give you a shot of the ocean. you have to be elevated maybe up to the second floor to see own new dune but that is there to keep water from damaging homes. it did its job already to protect these beach front properties, guys. >> steve, thank you. >> we do like that kiddie pool , thanks for the vantage point. president's senior advisor and son in law jared kushner will undergo two days of questioning before senate and house committees. >> among topics, ties between the trump campaign and russia. start of the very busy week. lets get down to washington
5:37 am
with doug luzader, so a lot of people are looking to see what comes out of this, doug court court kushner has had a couple days to face grilling here on capitol hill. he will meet with the senate intelligence committee today, house intelligence committee tomorrow and these are going to be behind closed doors and kushner will not be under oath at this point. thinks part of the agreement to get kushner to testify but democrats are in doubt going to press him about what he knew about what russia was doing during the campaigns and specifically what meetings took place involving anyone from russia, kushner, former campaign manager paul manafort , trump's son don junior and so on. this is not an easy day for kushner, the administration seems to think this will put things to rest but democrats promise to just keep digging here. >> a lot of people friday at 5:00 they shut off their tv and they enjoy and go down the shore here.
5:38 am
monday morning they turn on the tv is what the blaring head line that we missed over weekend and how will that factor out this week. >> reporter: big head line is fact that kushner will testify , you know, we knew this would happen but fact that it is happening this week is significant. other thing happening on capitol hill is the effort to repeal, replace obama care some combination have those two. we don't necessity how that will play out. president is really trying to pressure republicans to get on board with this effort to repeal obama care. it will not be easy. republicans are nip and tuck on the senate and doesn't help them from a political standpoint that senator john mccain will not be there which means they will need just about every republican vote that they can muster. they can only lose one republican and still pass something. >> it will be a very busy week all eyes watching what happens there and some negotiations to talk with donald trump junior as well. >> doug, thanks.
