all-together. nbc 10's monique braxton is live with a closer look at what happened and what's next. >> this morning those who oppose trump were chanting victory cries. that's what they say they heard from their supporters. but those who favor him are telling us that they don't think it was fair that the rally had to be canceled because of what could happen. so take a look at the video we put together for you from overnight in chicago. hundreds of jubilant protesters filing out of an auditorium where the republican presidential candidate abruptly canceled a campaign rally. protesters at the university of illinois were blocking most of the exits. trump supporters were pushing back yelling "racists, go home." one demonstrator said she had little sympathy that trump supporters felt uuncomfortable s they left.
a trump support said i hear this free speech crap but they want to shutdown free speech for all of us and that's unfair that protesters are treating people that way. police horses and barricades kept the bulk of protesters across the street. in the meantime, dozens of uic faculty and staff had petitioned administrators to cancel the rally for what they thought was going to happen and what we saw on tv playing out last night. five people were arrested according to chicago police. we've also seen video of an officer with a head injury. now, trump supporter new jersey christie was asked about the protest in chicago and here's his response. >> i've been to a number of those rallies in the last two weeks and have not observed what people are talking about. i've seen enthusiastic people
passionate about a candidate and who express that passion in times i've been there in ways completely appropriate. >> a short time ago we checked trump's schedule. his stop is in dayton, ohio. i called dayton police to find out what their plans are should chaos erupt. they told us at this point, the rally is going to be held at the airport and the crowd will be controlled there. so in just a couple of minutes, i'll place a call to dayton police at the airport to find out if they have any special plans. live from the digital operation center, monique braxton, nbc 10 news. >> thanks for that. we'll see you in half an hour for an update. stay with nbc 10 for continuing coverage of the trump rally chaos. you can check out more information on the nbc 10 app or on our website, nbc10.com. we'll have more reaction from some of the other presidential candidates coming up in the next half hour. a warning for women to like to walk a popular trail in

wanted to her. they argued the charges should be thrown out because of legislative immunity but the judge called the motion thin and questioned whether the motion was filed in good faith. even with the trial date looming on may 2nd, he's focused on his re-election bid this spring. >> i'm running for re-election and working really hard and making sure these unfounded allegations don't interfere with the democratic process. >> fattah is facing trial before the same judge with the same prosecutors in the same courtroom where his son was convicted last year. stop the state takeover. we'll explain what police chiefs in new jersey are urging lawmakers not to do when it comes to atlantic city. they are watching, waiting and praying for the best. coming up, we'll show you more of the historic flooding down
good saturday morning. yes, we're looking at a pretty decent forecast this morning. plenty of sunshine and blue skies as we look live right now to cape may, new jersey, where it is really just beautiful down there. a lot of folks like to take an early morning stroll on the beach down there. today is a perfect day to do that. look at the beautiful cloud formation right there. temperatures bumping upward for sure. 47 in philadelphia. 48 degrees in wildwood. 41 in atlantic city. so feeling really pretty good out there. we have an easterly wind that doesn't seem to be affecting too many folks. just down along the shoreline there a little light breeze out of the east. philadelphia about 6 miles per hour. we don't anticipate a strong
wind. breezy conditions as the wind shifts southwest later this afternoon. big story, enjoy the sun now because clouds moving in later on. we're doing just fine. some extreme weather in other parts of the world. in brazil, flooding claimed at least 16 lives. neighbor neighborhoods and roads are under water in sao paulo. in one case, firefighters had to rescue a newborn baby from a flooded home. three people drown when they were swept away in the floodwaters. down south historic storms continue to swamp louisiana. more than two feet of rain dumped across the state in the last three days triggering destructive flash flooding here. dozens have been evacuated from their homes and roads have collapse ed under all of the water. a view from above. a drone flew above vernon parish to capture images of the flooding. the governor has declared state

designated driver. some food for thought, last year police made 47 impaired driving arrests in delaware during st. patrick's day's celebration. more than half of all car deaths in 2015 were linked to driver impairment. drivers can expect increased checkpoints this weekend. i'm meteorologist karen thomas. we want to look at our weather picture because a lot of folks want to get out there today. a lot of plans and functions and things going on. good news. we have mostly sunny skies for a good portion of the day today. we'll continue with the sunshine. a little cooler today. especially starting out early this morning. we are on the chilly side so the jackets will be a handy trick there. tracking some rain in the forecast come tomorrow. the temperatures bumping quite nicely. 47 degrees currently in philadelphia. you see there in the 24-hour temperature change we're about 13 degrees cooler than we were this time yesterday. 38 degrees right now in allentown. 45 in the northeast.
41 degrees in atlantic city at this hour. temperatures as i mentioned across the region on the uptick for sure. right now 47 in philadelphia. 38 in the poconos. started out in the 20s this morning. so warm air will continue to come in. right now we have an easterly wind bringing clouds down along the shoreline. inland we're staying clear skies here. we see the leading edge of the clouds. this is a low pressure system moving in from the south. so we do expect the clouds to really sort of funnel in this afternoon going from all sun to overcast skies by evening and then the rain. we're watching that for tomorrow afternoon. possibility of scattered showers especially south of philadelphia. but then by late afternoon the chance of some scattered shower activity moving through philadelphia, parts north and west. just the offset chance as this system really sort of develops and moves our way. believing right now heaviest rain out of the low would be

pleased the rally was canceled because as she put it, to have the trump rally at this school for what this school stands for is disrespectful. a trump supporter said he walked through a gauntlet of protesters with his 9-year-old daughter and someone cursed at him making his daughter cry. as you see, police horses and barricades kept the bulk of the demonstrators apart. trump opponents protested what they call divisive comments particularly about muslims and mexicans. this chaos follows a petition by dozens of uic faculty and staff calling on administrators to cancel the rally citing concerns it would create a hostile and physically dangerous environment. five people were arrested according to chicago police. one police officer was seen with a head injury but police declined comment about that. now, trump supporter new jersey governor christie was asked about the protests in chicago and here's his response.
>> i think anybody who goes to a public event like that has responsibility for their own conduct. if they act in a way whether protesters or whether they are people who are there to support the candidate, anybody who acts inappropriately with those kind of things has to be held responsible for their own conduct no matter who it is. >> trump is due to appear at the airport in dayton, ohio. moments ago i reached out to police and i was told that at this moment they are way too busy working on logistics but they will get back to us about their plans to handle any disruptive behavior. live for now from the digital operation center, monique braxton, nbc 10 news. >> appreciate it. democratic presidential candidate bernie sanders was also in illinois last night during his campaign event sanders talked about the violence at the trump rally. take a listen. >> this campaign is about bringing our people together.

have consequences. also in an interview with msnbc, rubio said donald trump used language that appeals to anger. rally came hours after a former republican rival endorsed trump for president. dr. ben carson insists that there are two donald trumps. one is trump you see on stage and the other one considers things carefully. carson dropped out of the presidential race earlier this month. this is ahead of tuesday's winner take all primary elections. voters will cast their ballots in florida, ohio, illinois, missouri, and north carolina. hundreds of delegates are at stake for the candidates on both sides of the aisle. tomorrow morning on "meet the press," republicans john kasich and ted cruz will join chuck todd to talk about their campaigns ahead of tuesday's primaries. you can watch that right here on nbc 10 tomorrow morning at 10:30.
