4:02 pm
been ongoing through early spring. >> i have to rely on another way of getting to work. i probably will have to use a mountain bike to get to work. like they'll have to move a mountain to get to work if these drivers disappear. >> kind of scary to think about it. >> reporter: twu president willie brown commented earlier this week that a decision to strike would be made by the end of today. arguments over benefits continue, mostly on pensions. septa says it will receive 24 hours notice of a strike but some riders tell me that is not enough. >> i don't know. i'll have to try to find a ride to work. >> so you depend on septa entirely? >> everywhere i need to go, take my kids to school, everything. >> reporter: the last time the union went on strike was five years ago. the negotiations are ongoing as we speak. as i mention, i just spoke with congressman bob brady a few minutes ago. he says an update will be coming within the hour. he is in the hotel right now

4:04 pm
would be if this strike take place. >> no, i didn't. >> reporter: says the trains are jam packed at capacity now. she plans to adjust her schedule to not find herself in the thick of additional gridlock during her commute to and from work. this as a septa city transit strike could force some of 900,000 daily c]mmuters who rely on city buses, trolleys and the subway on to the rail lines to get home, lines that carry 126,000 trips or passengers daily during the morning and evening rush. >> it's upsetting because i don't know how long it will go on and just thinking of the whole thing, i don't know how much longer i can do an adjustment or flex my schedule. >> every day is different but i have to plan about an hour ahead because i have class. it takes about an hour just to get to center city, plus the walk. >> reporter: septa's jerry williams says a service interruption plan will post to the septa website if and when a decision to strike is reached.

4:10 pm
during the investigation, we got a better look at eric frein from this documentary. he was filmed as part of a war re-enactment and in it, he discussed how difficult it was to find someone hiding in the forest of the pocono mountains. it all came to an end last night around 6:00 when u.s. marshals caught frein outside this abandoned air park hangar. state police say agents caught him by surprise, his weapons inside. in addition to this hangar which skyforce 10 flew over today, frein also hid out in cabins for food and shelter. this is eric frein, the moment he was taken into custody, just as darkness set, in the poconos. frein's capture comes as a big relief to residents and business owners in the poconos. >> christine madella has talked to some of them who were paralyzed with fear while frein was on the run.ç christine, tell us what people are saying now. >> reporter: well, everyone is talking about this. take a look at the front page of

4:17 pm
realized that it was alluding to a victim being held against her will for some period of time. she left information on there that helped us i.d. who the victim was. >> reporter: police saw the couple on surveillance video and within three hours found them in the parking lot outside the dover mall. detectives tell us turner has a criminal rap sheet 30 pages long. police say it's unlikely he's getting out of prison anytime soon. bail is set at over $600,000. police say the victim is recovering with her family. in dover, delaware, lu ann cahn, nbc 10 news.ç now, your nbc 10 first alert weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> we started off the week with some pretty warm weather. we've seen a lot of sunshine but things are changing. we have rain moving in, some of it's going to start tonight. a rainy saturday continues to be in the forecast and a very windy sunday, along with the cold. at least it won't be raining on sunday. we have cloudy skies across much of the area now.
4:18 pm
it looks kind of threatening but the rain is not here yet. 54 degrees in philadelphia, the wind north at 8 miles an hour. we're 4 degrees cooler than we were at this time yesterday. we're still only 49 degrees in westchester, low to mid-50s across much of the rest of the area. fairly uniform temperatures but nobody is close to 60 degrees, which was our high yesterday and the day before that, we were 70. well, we continue to see moisture offshore. there's also moisture back to the west and in between. we just have clouds that came in from the ocean during the day. still nothing too substantial out there, out in the ocean, but as soon as the wind starts turning back into the northeast, that moisture will start coming in. and the future cast will show us that, not so much by 6:00 or 7:00 or even 8:00 but later tonight after 10:00, here come the showers now. this is generally patchy light rain to start off with and then
4:19 pm
as we get closer to day break, it becomes at least a chance of a little bit heavier and a little bit more widespread. now, this particular model seems to really underplay this. this has just come in a few minutes ago. i'll show you another model a little bit later that's more threatening than that one. you can see the trick or treat forecast continues to show, temperatures dropping toward the 50 degree mark by 9:00 and the chance of a little bit of light rain toward the 9:00, 10:00 period. so the earlier everybody goes out, the more sure i am that it's going to be dry. but tomorrow, along with the rain, we've got windç gusts. this is our future weather computer model showing us that. look at the potential wind gust down at the shore. at least this is an offshore wind, which helps. there is a coastal flood advisory for later tomorrow afternoon. then look at sunday. we again have potential gusts over 40 miles an hour.
4:20 pm
so for the rest of the night, we see patchy, light rain developing, 44 for the low in philadelphia. 40 north and west. the wind starts to increase a little bit out of the northeast. and tomorrow, rainy, windy and cold, may not be raining every hour tomorrow but a fairly rainy day. and some places not reaching 50 and everybody is getting a pretty gusty wind. then on sunday, it may be even windier and pretty cold but at least it's dry. very cold start on monday but then a big warmup next week, near 70 by wednesday. then we cool off toward the end of the week. don't forget to fall back when you go to bed saturday night. that's because daylight saving time ends at 2:00 a.m. on sunday. that means, of course, you get an extra hour of sleep this weekend. and when you turn back the clock, it's also a good time to put fresh batteries in the smoke detectors inside your home. >> good reminder. thanks, glenn. mischief night turns
4:21 pm
destructive. >> nbc 10 with information on the vandalism affecting one local community on halloween eve. also ahead, a halt to the hazing. the local school scandal that could pave the way for changes embroiled in taunting and bullying. . that package in the back was eric frein. police transmissions were gotten today. nbc 10 with the just released figures on the real impact on casino closures in atlantic city.
