baltimore and yellow and red, more intense colors, the heavier showers and even thunderstorms in some cases. most of this south of 66. you see the light to moderate rain in washington. it gets heavy here as you get into northern fauquier county, out west on 66. but south on 95 from woodbridge south, this is where we've got some lightning and thunder which is occurring down toward quantico, scattered now in toward western charles county. you guys get ready. this is headed your way. it will be in la plata in another 20 minutes or so as the stuff is quickly moving to the east. it's mild also. 50s and 60s to start. we've got wet roads and traffic volume building. not a good combination. you're right. not a good combination. good morning, everybody. things have been a little tough around town, especially to the north of town. i'm going to take you there right now where there is an accident inside the beltway in langley park right here on university boulevard east of
riggs vehicle involving an overturned vehicle. and between connecticut and georgia avenue, going to step out and see what we can see from sky 9. look at all the heavy traffic. that means there is an accident there. police were just arriving on the scene. be aware of this delay. inner loop of the beltway eastbound 495 between connecticut avenue and georgia avenue this morning. i'll keep you posted on the situation. with the rain coming down, it's not helping things much here. we'll go to a live shot southbound on i-275 at clarks burke. -- 270 at clarks burke. you have off and on delays but the lanes are open. more on the situation on the beltway at 6:11. at the top of the hour, we are following breaking news now. two deadly stabbings in the district in just one hour. >> the investigation into one of the stabbings is tying up the commute. delia goncalves is live in northwest with the latest. delia? >> reporter: an update for you, andrea. traffic is flowing smoothly about four hours into this investigation here on 5th and
florida in northwest. the crime scene tape has been cleared. however, the only indication of this crash is this pole, this light pole that is sitting in the middle of this corner here. apparently it appears that the car carried this pole, uprooted the pole from somewhere and take a close look a little further down the block. you can see it appears and as our cameraman is zooming in, kevin king zooming in to give you a closer look, appears that could be the source of where this light pole was first knocked over by this vehicle. let's take a closer look at some video that was fed into our newsroom a short time ago so you can take a look at yourself at what the scene looked like when our crews first arrived. around 2:15 police found the car smashed into the side of the tavern here on 5th and florida. the male driver we're told was not breathing and suffered a stab wound to the neck. he was later pronounced dead at howard university hospital. as you know, that is just a
short distance, a few blocks away from the crime scene here on 5th and florida. however, interesting to note about the crime scene, police are trying to determine exactly where this male driver was stabbed. it is clear that he was driving his vehicle and he may have driven away from the crime scene. police at this point don't though in which direction he was coming from and how far he was traveling. so police are trying to determine exactly where this man was stabbed so they can put the pieces together and try to determine exactly what happened early this morning around 2:15. more details coming up at 6:30. back to you, mike, andrea. >> thank you for the update, delia goncalves live on this breaking news in northwest washington. prince george's county police are looking for the people who robbed two university of maryland students in their own home. police say it happened yesterday at their off campus house on curry place in adelphi. investigators say the three armed men broke into the home, took cash, drugs, and one of
the victim's cars. one year ago today the news of one man's death sent people into the streets celebrating. this is the anniversary of navy seal team six taking out terrorist leader osama bin laden. the seals execute add 40-minute raid into -- executed a 40- minute raid into bin laden's compound and no americans were lost during this mission. president obama said it didn't mark the end of the war on terror though. even though bin laden is dead, the fight against al qaeda is ongoing. >> along with allies and partners, we have been unrelenting. and when we assess that al qaeda of 2012, i think it is fair to say that as a result of our efforts, the united states is more secure and the american people are safer. >> the first -- excuse me. the white house also confirmed for the first time covert drone aircraft strikes against al qaeda even though it was common knowledge already. the boondoggle that's the
silver spring transit center is getting more expensive. we told you about the bad concrete work that's halted construction at the news bus, metro and rail hub. montgomery county leaders now put the price tag at $112 million. that's up another $11 million and triple the original estimate. the best case scenario for the transit center has it opening in august but they're still deciding whether to repair or bring it down and redo. at 6:05, jessica doyle is watching your money, her money, all of our money. >> apparently our nest eggs are getting a little bigger. >> that's right. workers are successfully stashing the cash. they're putting it in their 401(k) plans in the first quarter and a sunning market -- sunning market helped -- surging market helped increase numbers. the average balance the end of march, almost $75,000. that was up six grand from three months before. about 80% of the increase is a result of market performance.
the rest due to contributions from workers and their employers. stocks rallied nearly 13% in the market's best start since 1998. the stock portfolios may be worth more but few of us are living the mental dream of owning -- the american dream of owning a home. homeownership is at its lowest point in 15 years. the rate of homeownership fell in the first three months of this year to 65.4%, down from 66.4% in the first quarter of last year, another sign of the slow housing market after the bubble burst. maryland's public service commission announced the standard electricity price that takes effect this june will transform to a cut of about 54 bucks a year. you can go out to dinner or something. >> something went down for a change. >> it's rare. >> it is.

radars in motion. with the lightning, you see it from new york there's lightning up there as well all the way through baltimore and washington, down toward areas in virginia now approaching fredricksburg into southern maryland. we'll switch it over to live doppler 9000 hd and get a better idea. we're starting to clear out west into maryland and virginia. got heavier showers just off to the southwest. you'll notice the light rains in fairfax county if fairfax out 66 in towards prince william county. gainesville, haymarket, chantilly some of the heavier showers there, especially south toward manassas. but the heaviest stuff we're seeing is now coming out of virginia, crossing the river into maryland. you see even moderate showers down toward goldvein but it's this stuff, lightning and thunder moving toward the east at 40 miles an hour. mar berry toward accokeek. this will past just south of
fort washington. this is all moving toward southern prince george's county, calvert, maybe northern st. mary's. southern maryland is going to get the brunt of the weather for the next 30 to 40 minutes. bus stop forecast, got some showers out there obviously. but it's also winding up north and west of town or winding down i should say north and west of town. 50s and 60s. sunrise is just five minutes ago. we didn't see it with the clouds. we will see partly sunny conditions today at least. temperatures by noon in the mid- to upper 70s. highs low 80s. might get to 84, 85 as winds become westerly 10 to 15 and still in the upper 70s at 8:00 p.m. but more of a northerly push will keep us ath bit -- we'll struggle with the 80s and 70s the next commof days. 56 in hagerstown -- couple of days. 56 in hagerstown. rain on the way at patuxent river, 67. here in washington as we look outside on our michael & son weather camera, cloudy skies. light rain around and 62 degrees. dew point 56 so the humidity is

district. >> one of them ended bizarrely with a car crash. delia goncalves is live in northwest washington with the latest. >> reporter: some major developments since we last spoke to you last half-hour. you can see crews have arrived here and they're removing the light pole that apparently was uprooted, smashed and moved by this car that crashed into a bar here on 5th and k. crews are using the crane trying to remove the base of that pole. it is a heavy job and probably more difficult to do in this rain. let's take a close look at some video so you can see for yourself just what our crews saw when they first arrived at the scene just after 2:00. police responded to this crash at 2:15 this morning. they say they found the male driver inside the car. he was unconscious and he was not breathing. apparently that man was suffering a stab wound to the neck and he died just a short time later at howard university hospital which you may know is
just about two blocks from the scene. that car crashed into shaw's tavern here on 5th and florida avenue. it is unclear exactly what happened. however, just from our time here on the crime scene, it appears that the driver may have been traveling westbound on florida avenue. as i said, he was just two blocks away from howard university hospital. police are trying to determine exactly where the stabbing occurred. it appears since he was in his car driving, he drove away from that crime scene presumably heading to the hospital. however, it is unclear and police are not confirming that at this point. we are waiting for more details from detectives as they continue to comb the scene and try to figure out exactly what happened early this morning. back to you, mike, andrea? >> delia goncalves live on this breaking news story out of northwest washington. thank you. jury deliberations should begin today in the child sex abuse trial against michael gardner. the falls church businessman is
accused of molesting three young girls invited to sleepovers for his daughter last summer. gardner took the stand in his own defense yesterday. he said on one occasion his daughter asked him to come into her bedroom during a thunderstorm that night. however, he denies inappropriately touching any of the other girls. the occupy movement hasn't gone away. today in fact it's calling for a general strike in four specific areas. the occupiers are calling for work shutdowns and blockades in new york, chicago, san francisco and seattle. they hope for 30,000 people to join the march if manhattan today. occupy supporters call this the start of the spring offensive to get their call for economic equality back in the headlines. good news keeps coming in on gas prices. that sounds nice. in our region the average price is down yet again. the numbers we got from aaa in the last 90 minutes, regular grade glass, $3.89, down 2 cents from yesterday and down 8 cents in the last week.
nationwide the average sits at $3.81 a gallon. the cost of flying out of town is not getting any cheaper. the department of transportation says ticket prices out of our region's three airports jumped 10% over the last six months with southwest and air tran being the biggest players. the average ticket out of bwi marshall $322. out of reagan it's $381 and with all of its international service, the average ticket out of dulles is $474 for round trip. nationwide the average was $368. at 6:38, we have a health alert. d.c. is a great place for women. yes, the rankings are out from the social science research council. it looked at 25 metropolitan areas and ranked them on life expectancy, earnings and education for women. the district came in number one followed by san francisco. then boston. baltimore came in eighth. riverside, california ranked at the bottom.
video games can be a chance for children to get healthy. the president's council on fitness, sports and nutrition held an event monday encouraging healthy lifestyles through active games. pong the athletes on hand, tennis legend billy jean king and olympic gymnast and silver spring native dominique doss. >> today we live in a culture where one in three young kids are overweight and obese. we need to make sure they understand that they've got to be physically active. they've got to have proper nutrition. it really does start within the home. >> quarterback drew bres is also part of the president's council. i'll be talking with him later this morning about his role in getting youngsters fit. don't be surprise if you see dozens of prince george's county officers and cadets going for a jog in your neighborhood. the runs are a part of the transforming neighborhoods program. it's a community outreach program to residents living in six communities that have been crime hot spots for years.
county executive rushern baker joined the group for the jog through langley park yesterday morning. >> it's about education, about health care, about social services, job opportunities in working with our nonprofit communities in these areas until we actually see them change. >> similar two-mile runs are planned for east riverdale, suitland, palmer park, hill crest heights and glass manor. our time is 6:38. howard says we'll have some showers this morning and maybe thunderstorms this afternoon. highs will be around 80. next learn how long the warm weather will last. last summer's comedy horrible bosses looked at bosses who are bullies. in nine minutes, jessica doyle tells us how to deal with bullies at work and how to realize if you're actually one yourself.
it's 6:42 and 62 degrees. we've had a lot of show traffic. even on the beltway north side of town it's jammed from 95. you can see the redheading into silver spring before the pace improves. we'll take a live look at 270. the initial slow traffic out of frederick to clarksburg and here in germantown it looks like this off and on all the way to the spur where the lanes open. let's go back over to the maps, this time to the other side of town. inbound 66 has been in trouble all because of a minor accident in centreville. it's been sitting on the shoulder at route 29. 29 miles an hour if manassas past the earlier accident and as you traffic through fairfax. a live at the 14th street bridge northbound. it looks like this off and on leaving the beltway past landmark to the bridge span on 395. another look at area roads at 6:58. back to you. >> monika, thank you. looks like this weather is going to stick around at least for the morning commute. howard expects it's going to move out in allege bit.
it's 62 -- in a little bit. it's 62 degrees. we could tack on maybe 20 degrees before the day is through. >> the rain we're having now seeing the back edge closer and closer to us. the worst weather we're going to see all day we're seeing right now. improving conditions the next one or two hours. definitely will see some sun. it may take a few hours but we'll see sun and a warmer day than yesterday when we were only in the upper 60s for highs. today low #s on. get ready -- low 80s. get ready for the change. just want to show you the pogues of the rain. everything -- motions. of the rain. everything moving to the east. by far the heavy stuff on and east of us as we speak, this line of showers lining up right up and down i-95 all the way to new york for that. but when you get into areas of upper montgomery county, past
gaithersburg, you get past dulles, it's drying out. you get in toward prince william county, west toward haymarket and gainesville, they're done with the rain. however, in d.c. right now, moderate showers extending up toward silver spring and parts of howard county. we'll go down 95. still looking at some of that moderate rain from woodbridge and lorton down toward around stafford and western charles county. look at this. this is a thunderstorm here in calvert county now coming out of southern prince george's county, eastern charles, east of benedict. watch out for plum point. it's going to past north of st. leonard as well. chesapeake beach, you may get in on some of this but the heaviest stuff just off to our south. the bus stop forecast still a few showers out there especially east of i-95 with temperatures in the 50s and 60s, rather mild. sunrise occurred at 6:10 this morning. today partly sunny, mostly cloudy early. we become partly sunny. mid-70s by 11:00. near 80 by 1:00. we'll be in the low 80s this

by monday with a chance of storms returning. it is now 6:46. i go over to jessica doyle. thank you. bullies don't fade away on the playground. they turn into adults and then turn into your co-workers. how do you deal with a bully at work? joining us with advice this morning is sandra crowe, the author of the book "i didn't sign up for this." just out last week, correct? >> yes. >> that's exciting. >> yes, thank you. >> a lot of us have had this situation where at some point in our career, for me it was very early on in my career, you encounter a bully who turns out to be your boss. i had a huge container of tums on my desk every day, didn't sleep at night and had to deal with that situation. how should we deal with bullies who are our bosses in the workplace? >> the first thing you need to understand, jessica, is that bullies mostly want control. and the reason they mostly want control is because inside themselves they feel that they are lacking control. so there's this propensity to want to control everyone else,
including themselves. so that's why they act the way they do. people need to understand there's a deep insecurity underneath the dysfunctional behavior. >> but there's also an insecurity with the person being bullied. we were talking earlier that you need to assert yourself in this situation. >> yes. what happens is bullies look for victims. and the way the victims shows up is someone who is typically very insecure or they can find the insecurity and they can prey on that. they literally act like an animal looking for prey. >> if you're the prey and you're working for a bully, what do you do in this situation? >> here's the most important thing to realize. first of all know there's a pattern going on between you and the bully and the bully has sought you out. once you see that, you have to find your internal warrior. there's a place inside all of us that we've all experienced which is a place of strength. we've also experienced the weakness. the bully tends to bring out
our weaknesses. what we want to do is in the midst of that access our inner strength. one way you can do that is to find your belly button and there's actually two fingers below that is the center of your being, the center of your body. people who do pilates oreo garks they're familiar -- yogaing, they're familiar with it. when you access that part of it, it naturally brings up that internal strength if you can't access it any other way. that will begin to have you be stronger in the face of the bully and change that pattern. >> immediately deal with the situation is one tip that you were giving me earlier. >> yes. one thing you don't want to have happen is have that pattern go on for a long period of time because then the bully feels privileged in the pattern. then it just repeats. >> you basically taught them to bully you. >> exactly. that's an important point. we teach people how to talk to us and how to treat us so change the way you act and you'll reeducate the bully. >> we love the advice. thank you so much for coming in
this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> i'm going to send it over to mike. >> all right, thank you, jess. 6:49. time to reveal the answer to the question of the morning. here's the question one more time. every year guys spend $100 million on one of these products. is it a, moisturizer, b, hair dye, or c, tanning lotion? >> the answer is b, hair dye. checking the news before you go coming up next.
