11:02 pm
mahomes? >> dan: i saw a lot because he made that great throw on third and 19. his first pass was a thing of beauty. throwing over the middle as he's running left. obviously there is a lot to work on but i think he should be pleased especially engineering that long drive. >> spero: mahomes now watching bray. able to get it off just in the nick of time. this is dieter inside seattle territory. forced out of bounds. it will be a first down on the catch-and-run am a pickup of 22. we go downstairs. jay feely with richard sherman. >> jay: such a talented defense. without earl thomas back there a different defense. what does it mean to have him behind you? >> best free safety in the game, to have him out here is unbelievable. it's tough -- obviously, bobby wagner means nothing to our defense. he's just

11:04 pm
available. he says he's put it all behind him. he's healthy again. he's raring to go for the regular season. that is dieter again. they need sherman to play at a high level this season. >> dan: seahawks fans are happy that the trade never happened and i believe he is as well because the legion of boom is a tremendous nickname but they've earned it with their play. as physical and dominating a secondary as there is in the nfl. we were fortunate enough tonight to see the chiefs secondary without eric berry but still, they can give the seahawks a run for their money. >> spero: defense that has allowed the fewest points ask yards in the nfl over the last three years. bray's pass will fall incomplete. intended for demarcus robinson.
11:05 pm
the preseason continues. one game left. usually you go from 90 players to 75 and then down to the final 53. they've eliminated that middle cut, dan, so teams go from 90 to 53 on september 2nd. it is going to be i wild few days. >> dan: no question. the great thing about that is it gives some of these marginal players one more opportunity to make an impression. either to the present team you're on or to another team because everything will be examined closely. tyler bray is hanging in there and doing a pretty good job as he hits escobar that time for the first down. >> spero: gavin escobar, fifth-year man out of san diego state signing a free agent contract in the off-season and a dart that time by bray. a pickup of 12. that will get the chiefs a fresh set o

those winds are stronger than ever. >> hurricane harvey roars ashore. >> reporter: we are expected to get part of the eye wall here in corpus christi. >> texas is bracing for what could be a deadly night. >> reporter: things are only going to get worse. >> let's get right to the latest on this storm. the news on wusa9 starts now. >> essentially harvey is making landfall as we speak as a category 4 storm. here is the latest satellite picture. the eye is in the center a little east, northeast of corpus christi close to rockport. they've had sustained winds 102 just north of corpus christi. so there is the eye making landfall right now. you have to remember once the winds subside it's still going to be a story because of
11:18 pm
rainfall the next several days. it's not going to go anywhere. so category 4, maximum winds 130, gusts to 160, strongest storm to hit texas since brett in 1999. look what happens. category 4 still as it moves inland and then as a category 2 by the time we get to saturday morning with winds still 110 doesn't move very far very fast. even by saturday at 7:00 at night winds are still 75 miles per hour, so just barely a category 1 storm and then it starts to make a little loop with winds up to 60 miles per hour by sunday morning. look how long it's been inland, may do a little loom, come back in the gulf and go into -- loop, come back in the gulf and go into louisiana. tomorrow morning at 6:00 there will be a little core of hurricane force winds or higher just to the west of port lavaca and north and northeast of corpus christi and tropical storm force winds still extend out 140 miles from the storm. san antonio by noon tomorrow still has tropical storm force winds as do corpus chri
11:19 pm
still hurricane force winds possible between san antonio and port lavaca which is incredible for how long it will be on land by saturday night at 7:30 hurricane force winds. rainfall again this is the story once the storm surge goes by and the winds subside, rainfall 15 to 30 inches from corpus christi up to houston and even several inches possible as far inland as san antonio and dallas. here's the radar. there are the bands of heavy rain, absolutely hammering the islands and the coastal areas of texas. here's the eye moving ashore. landfall near rockport just north of corpus christi with sustained winds of 102 miles per hour. that is the latest official information we -- but again category 4 130 -- we have, but again category 4, 130 mile-per- hour winds. here's some more headlines on hurricane harvey at this hour. coastal towns in texas did order mandatory evacuations, but houston did not and you
11:20 pm
see from what topper showed you, that storm is not too far from there. the mayor there is asking residents to stay put. 700 members of the state and national guard have been deployed to the coast to assist when it is over. >> that massive storm surge that topper talked about already catching people off guard despite the numerous warnings. this video from corpus christi, a town that's taken the brunt of harvey for most of the day, this driver ran off the road and ended up in pretty deep water. he was rescued by people who just happened to be nearby. that rising water is just one problem in texas tonight. >> reporter: i want to show you a palm tree that went down near where we were doing our live reports. look at how massive this palm tree is. you can see it is probably about 25 feet long and you can see the entire root system is just completely soaked. so when one of those massive gusts of wind came at it, it just went tumbling down.
11:21 pm
>> topper and his fellow forecasters are getting some extra help from above tonight. we're talking about a new weather satellite and pete muntean tells us harvey is the first big test for this big test in technology. >> here's what we're talking about, the new bose r satellite by noaa. harvey is giving this $11 billion project a run for its money for the first time. look how detailed this is. images come every 30 seconds instead of the usual 30 minutes. the resolution is four times better than what's already in space. all of that means meteorologists can forecast storms better. they can also demystify how storms build and break apart with a lot more clarity. the satellite launched last november. technically it's not live till later this year, but noaa is already posting pictures of hurricane harvey online. the satellite is beaming images back to earth to the noaa facility in suitland. >> improvedca
11:22 pm
to enable forecasters to have earlier and more accurate information. at the end of the day that's what it's all about is saving lives and property. >> this detail doesn't just show the size of storms. it can also help predict how much rain will be produced. all of that means more accurate flood warning. now this is just one part of a larger project. noaa will launch three more weather satellites over the next 20 years. coverage of the pacific ocean is next, but for now scientists all over the world are glued to this view from 22,000 miles up. pete muntean, wusa9. >> step forward there. president trump is monitoring the storm from camp david tonight as he and his family walked to marine one, a report shouting a question asking if he had a message for the people of texas. his reply? good luck. lots of you asking on social media about how the storm and the damage it leaves behind might affect the price you pay for gas. our verify team is on it
11:23 pm
the texas coast is home to almost half of america's refineries, the blue dots here. a refinery is what turns oil into the gas that you buy at the pump. as for the crude oil itself, have a look at this. all of these red dots represent oil wells or oil rigs out here in the gulf of mexico. they turn out more than1.5 million barrels of oil every day. that accounts for 17% of america's total crude oil production. here's the bottom line. hurricane harvey is plowing a destructive path through a big part of the nation's infrastructure here as we speak. the major oil companies, they've evacuated their workers off the oil wills and out of the oil rigs for safety reasons and they've slowed down production that. means over the next few weeks there will be -- production. that means over the next few weeks there will be less oil to refine for your vehicle which means you'll pay more at the pump.
11:24 pm
>> reporter: you may see a spike in prices and that is to be expected in certain parts of the country, especially along the gulf coast and the deep south and even in parts of the eastern seaboard including washington d.c., virginia and maryland. >> let's run the numbers that matter here. right now you're paying an average of 2.55 a gallon in the d.c. area. aaa predicts that the hurricane will increase prices up 15 cents meaning if you're planning to drive over the labor day weekend, you can plan to pay about 2.70 a gallon. now if the storm doesn't have too big of an impact on oil facilities, you might pay a bit less. who would complain about that? so we can verify hurricane harvey's impact will mean you're paying more at the pump, but the experts predict whatever price hike happens will only be temporary. whether it's social media rumors or possible fake news, our verify team is ready to help

11:32 pm
his plan, to ultimately take out the pool and build three houses on top, but he said he can't do that until stafford county's planning commission gives final approval to rezone this land which may not come until october. >> to remove the pool i would absorb all the expense in removing the pool. then i still have to be able to build the houses and then all i have is one lot to build one house. >> reporter: in the meantime he's fought the problem with mosquitoes by just having chemicals dumped into the pool. susan armstrong is just hopeful it works because she just wants the problem solved. >> humor me. i'm old. >> reporter: we just got word from stafford county mr. wingrove agreed to have the pool drained by september 5th. in the meantime the county adds the zoning issue to ultimately redevelop that land is running through the planning commission's normal process. >> good luck to them with that. our heart love campaign in february was a
