are not a one-shot deal. and that she's learned through her tenure as secretary of state it is daily artwork. >> you don't build a coalition by insulting our friends. or acting like a loose cannon. people have to get to know that they can count on you. that you won't say one thing one day and something totally different the next. and it certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by home again. >> mexico's president also invited hillary clinton for a visit as we mentioned. her aides say she has no plans to go as of now. denver police investigating the death of a pedestrian. near the intersection of first and down. not releasing any other details at this point. witnesses say the person who was hit was a woman. the intersection shut down for the time being.

different story. thank you. tropical storm hermine has triggered the first hurricane watch for west florida in years. heavy rains have already started as the outer bands of the storm moved to shore. in tampa some streets are already flooded. cars have gotten stuck and stalled in the deep water. the threat is to make landfall thursday afternoon. first responders have evacuated people living along the coast. shut down schools and colleges for the rest of the weekend open shoulders for evacuees. >> oh, my gosh. this is my first time. and i am petrified. >> if hermine strengthens and does become a hurricane, with 74-mile an hour winds or more, before it hit lands, it would be the first to hit florida in 11 years. two hurricanes are headed toward hawaii. the first is meddling expected to pass very close to the big island on the south side of the chain. behind it is hurricane lester
may move to the northernmost islands over the weekend. people living there are stocking up on supplies. hurricanes have hit the islands but it is rare. the most devastating passed over kawhi on september 11th, 1992. >> we went through this last year at this point. we had three hurricanes all in a row. this was only two. so we're better off this year than last but these are more serious, they are much more strong. so i think there's a lot of people paying a lot closer attention >> hurricane madeline is forecast to brush the southern end of the island, gusts up to 100 could hit the highest point of hawaii on monica day. in colorado a few showers in the mountains and to ourselves but the heavy rain has stayed away from the area. we will have the holiday weekend forecast coming up in just a few minutes. three injured denver police officers are expected to recover after a struggle and
who was killed. police say the man tried to take one of the officers weapons. the incident started on west bates avenue not far from the south of federal. officers were trying to serve warrants on the suspect at a home and he escaped out a window. dpd said the officers caught up with him and then there was a struggle. several shots fired. the man was hit. he was pronounced dead at the scene. none of the officers were shot. two of them were taken to a hospital. dpd has not elaborated on injuries. they are on administrative leave which there's a shooting like this. there's a new layer to the epipen story that's making news nationally. we found people selling epipens on craigslist. four separate ads. epipen junior, two packs, even one for an expired epipen. at least the person who posted about the expired one was honest. i googled it. it says they might still be fine. actually, it's illegal to buy or sell prescription meds unless it's through a pharmacy. obvious safety issues.
concern where the epipen that's being sold or purchased may not contain epinephrine. the active medication used for a life-threatening allergic response. third, we may have a contaminated product since it's being sold outside of a license pharmacy without a valid certificate. >> i'd encourage you to check out our investigation of the political favors and defining media coverage that epipens maker got in the years leading up to the price hike and the public outrage. you'll find that on 9news.com. assigned the letters before they open. it's tough to picture the train to the plane getting an a nowadays. more operational problems and delays on the line today. trains are operating normally tonight. we thought it was time for a deeper examination of what's going wrong with that train and what rtd knew about the problems and when. went rtd's chief sat across from me in june he said he knew of no problems in the lead up to the launch. our nine wants to know team
rtd knew about the problems before they put people on the train. >> reporter: things could have gone better. we get it. we been more than willing to tell you about the problems. >> thrown off. >> reporter: a few months ago the head of rtd assured us -- >> we didn't see issues in testing, that caused us any concerns. >> reporter: assured us the problems >> i would say there really were no problems during the testing phase is. >> reporter: now we know he didn't tell us the entire story. like the chapters tucked away in these records we got through the open records law. in order to understand what we're about to tell you, you have to understand this. in the five weeks leading up to the actual open of the a-line, denver transit partners put trains on the line to test the system. they kept to the schedules they
score of 95 or above on 21 consecutive days. >> you didn't come anywhere near that. >> reporter: rtd spokesperson instead of getting to the goal of 21 consecutive days of 95 or above like this, the a-line delivered six days. not six consecutive days. but six passing days in all. six. that's it. still the a-line opened up on time, on ap read says he knows what you're thinking but -- >> we knew that going in. it was going to be almost impossible to hit that. >> reporter: impossible maybe. but the report suggests a number of problems from a rescue train that broke down trying to rescue a broken down train, to consistent problems with many of the crossing lines. the problems that to this day require two people to monitor every crossing 24 hours a day.
not what our passengers expect. >> reporter: rtd says the goals were a stretch. and there were no requirements the a-line meet them. >> you shoot for the stars and still reach the moon. scenario. so i think that's exactly what we did on this. >> reporter: today, another glitch on the a-line. >> i am writing the train to the airport. >> causing more people to wonder. >> closed down. oh great. are we going to have to stop? >> reporter: to wonder, maybe someone might have seen this coming. >> that was chris vanderveen reporting. rtd insists what it's general manager told me does not conflict with what rtd told chris today. rtd also says the testing phase revealed no safety problems. that would have warranted delay in the opening day. we'll continue to poke around on this. chris vanderveen the story aired on next, our new nightly news program airing at 6:00 p.m. on 9news. you can see our reporting
we'll see the flamingos around town from time to time. not made -- not native to colorado. the boy scouts do it as a fundraiser, they scatter pink flamingos and then ask for money to take them away. >> we usually do this at night around 9:00. so you wake up in the morning and you see these lovely birds in your front yard. and then we put a bag on the
removed. it doesn't do much damage and we are not -- only a few holes in the ground. >> as the fundraisers usually work, there's another layer. if you pay a bit more, you can pick the next person to get flocked. there are apps that can tell you where police have set up radar. a man in texas assuming not everyone -- took it upon himself. pictures of his billboard are media. warning, speed zone ahead, lists several nearby towns. it is not intended to be a negative reflection on law enforcement. it is intended to warn drivers about communities he says use speed traps to generate revenue. we've already seen snow in the mountains. so it comes as no surprise that the leaves have started turning. in clear creek county there are already shades of yellow and red showing up in a few trees. temperatures have been getting cooler and while we'll stay
will be here before you know it. it always sneaks up on you. august and september. >> what a difference a day makes. this time last night heavy rain, hail, lightning in the city, it was crazy out here. tonight a beautiful summer evening. we say goodbye to august with just a lovely day. the color in the sky at sunrise and sunset was which should be waning as we move into the new month starting tomorrow. average high in september in the 70s, average low in the mid- 40s. typically we see hours -- the first snowfall in september. no rain or snow tonight. that bodes well for your morning drive forecast with fair skies and light winds when you step out, temperatures tomorrow a couple degrees milder than today. 82 out at dia and that is a little bit cooler than the average and nowhere near record territory. something we talk about this time of year. high humidity, calm winds in
with temperatures here downtown just a smidgen milder than that. we do have rising air pressure, winds out of the east southeast at about 15. and we're tracking a few weeks thunderstorms off the foothills tonight. but tracking from north to south. the storm on the far eastern plains producing thunder, lightning and rain. but nonsevere cells. the greatest threat has been near gunnison westcliff with an aerial flood advisory and flash flood warning. really the moisture much more limited the flash flood watch areas combined to southeastern new mexico and western texas. a turn that we'll continue tomorrow with tropical plume of moisture being pushed northward and eventually east. low-pressure stays to our north tomorrow. with the wind shift it will be slightly drier with the exception of areas west and south of the metro area down through new mexico and central texas. all of that tropical moisture funneling in this way. when you talk about tropical
is forecast to make landfall near tallahassee tomorrow. or sometime early friday. then it will cruise across the carolinas and may affect the northeast coast come the weekend. so certainly the tropics very active and of course two hurricanes bearing down on hawaii tonight as well. 101 in phoenix, denver a couple degrees milder. a little bit cooler than what we might see this time of year. thundershowers attracting to the south, out but the low cloud deck, fog may be an issue. traveling eastbound on i-76 on the far eastern plains. thunderstorms in the high country, hard-pressed to move off tomorrow, so actually another calm quiet day coming up, lowe's in the mountains in the 40s. coming up out of the 30s with low to mid-50s for lower elevations. almost 90 in grand junction. low 80s in southeastern colorado. a little bit cooler than
the fall just about three weeks away. in the city, still a few sprinkles possible, rumble of thunder, skies clearing, low 52. tomorrow a nice day coming up with foothill storms but denver basically dry. 102 may crews over the city but more widespread thunderstorm activity is expected on friday. ahead of a wonderful weekend forecast. sunshine, temperatures between 85 and 90 on saturday, sunday and monday. wonderful weather coming up for the holiday and for the first full week of the new month. spectacular pictures coming in on the digital network and course on facebook and twitter.
