>> the jersey shore and delaware beaches are expected to get hit hard. damage done. both underwater. streets are flooded in florida and the storms is crushing the carolinas. your labor day weekend plans could be in jeopardy. that's all depending where you live and where you're going. heavy rain is coming from hermine, it could even be dangerous at the shore. a busy friday night. good evening, i'm jacqueline london. first urp, up and down the coast people are bracing for the worst. including here in our area. here's a live look at charleston, south carolina. hermine has really hit hilton head island and the carolinas hard in the past few hours. here's a live picture from surf city, north carolina. you can see the strong waves whipping around in the ocean. check out the storm damage in florida. water near a marina flooded an entire dock and a few boats went underwater.
6:01 pm
several streets in pin el as county are underwater. radar on wheels in north carolina. we can give you the most updated forecast. the radar can extend 75 miles, and it can show us views inside the storm that you can't get anywhere else. the nbc 10 first alert team is tracking hermine and its impact on our holiday weekend, and even into next week. we have you covered at the beaches and in the air. we begin with meteorologist sheena parveen. sheena, i know timing and location are critical here. >> yes, jacqueline, very critical to the weekend forecast. and like you mentioned, storm ranger 10, we drove it to elizabeth city. i have that look in just a second. hermine is in south carolina right now. the winds are 50 miles an hour near the center. it's weaker than yesterday as it made landfall as a category 1 hurricane. it's moving at 20 miles an hour. it's picked up speed here. when it gets closer to us, it's expected to slow down offshore. not good news for us. the rain extends to the north
6:02 pm
and northeast. the right side of any tropical system is always going to be the worst side. there you see the left side of the center. not much happening. actually clear skies there. the clouds for us are already starting to increase. it's approaches parts of southern virginia currently. some of the heaviest rain bands in this thing are close to 3 inches of rain per hour. the good news with that, though, yes, it's heavy tropical rain but it's not going to sit in one area for an hour. the flooding concern will not come from the rain for us, it will be coming from high tide, along with an yoen shore wind and the water getting pushed onshore. closer to the center of the storm, off the coast of south carolina, 18-foot-high waves with winds gusting near about 60 miles an hour. you see closer to home, we are dry. the rain is just to our south. it will be moving into part of the area tomorrow. now we zoom into elizabeth city where we find storm ranger 10, the only mobile radar you'll find on wheels. we can move it wherever we want whenever we want.
6:03 pm
we'll keep it around for the weekend with this storm. there you see some of the heavier rain. as we go into the weekend, we have a tropical storm warning for the jersey shore and delaware beaches surrounding the delaware bay. we could see winds gusting as high as 60 miles an hour. the closer look at the updated track and what to expect for your weekend, chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is standing by. >> this is not one of the storms that will actually make landfall at the jersey shore, but it could produce so much flooding, that it does go down in history. now, we could see that there is a lot of rain associated with that storm. and it's moving in our general direction. and, of course, it will come with the track. so as the track goes up towards the northeast, that whole big rain area that sheena just showed you, is going to shift up, too. and the storm's not really weakening very much. and then it goes out into the warm atlantic waters, as the gulf stream that's even warmer than usual, over 80 degrees,
6:04 pm
that's enough to support a hurricane. and it could potentially redevelop into a hurricane. there's the 75-mile-an-hour predicted max wind with a bit of a left curve, or doing a little loop or stalling not far offshore. that's kind of a worst case, considering a storm coming from the gulf of mexico. gulf of mexico storms don't generally do anything like this. but as it stalls, it's pulling winds from hundreds and hundreds of miles out to sea, churning up those waves, sending them right for the beaches. hour after hour after hour, and day after day after day. and each high tide gets a little bit higher. so that's the setup, until the wind starts blowing offshore, that water is not going to be going down. we'll talk more about the specifics of what to expect at the shore and everyonewhere else in our area in a few minutes. >> if you are headed to the shore or staying home this weekend, make sure you download
6:05 pm
the nbc 10 app. it will be valuable to you. you can sign up for weather alerts sent to your phone so you can know how hermine will impact your neighborhood and when. we begin with nbc 10 jersey shore bureau reporter ted greenberg. ted? >> reporter: jackie, we are live in longport tonight. serene along the coast now. but the beaches could really take a beating during this storm. tonight folks all along the jersey shore are gearing up for dangerous conditions that might persist for days. jim lions is hoping the mesh fence he put up outside his bris an teen home today will help keep sea grass off his property if hermine floods his neighborhood. >> very concerned. if the tides were as high as they were last night and this morning, and the wind picks up, we're going to get water. >> reporter: bob hofer took his
6:06 pm
boat out of the bay before the storm. before brigantine closes its city boat ramp at 2:00 p.m. tomorrow. >> while i have the boat at a dock, i just felt it would be prudent to pull it out today. we have a little condo down here so i'll just park it over at the lot for a few days and put it back in. >> reporter: hermine could bring coastal flooding to the shore, high wind and major beach erosion. the dep commissioner said state inspectors are assessing the coastline. >> we'll compare that after the storm. we're concerned, we're not overreacting at this point. we're making sure all the resources are in place. >> reporter: in west wildwood, officials got chairs off the floor of burrough hall in case hermine sends water surging inside. >> you hope and pray it doesn't happen. but we're prepared. we have the humvees ready. >> reporter: the community is still recovering from severe flooding during january's nor'easter. >> we might head out tomorrow night. i'll keep watching the weather.
6:07 pm
i'm not too crazy about staying for the winds. >> reporter: and in addition to the very serious flooding and beach erosion threats, dangerously rough surf is expected throughout the weekend. and possibly into next week. live tonight in longport, i'm ted greenberg, nbc 10 news. >> people in delaware are also preparing for what hermine has for them this weekend. some people we spoke to canceled their plans. others are just hoping for the best. nbc 10 delaware bureau reporter tim furlong continues our coverage from dewey beach. >> reporter: don't be fooled, this is pretty mellow scene here in dewey beach. what you don't see are those taking the storm seriously. we're at the indian river inlet just a few miles south of dewey. a lot of people setting up their tents and trailers for the holiday weekend. they're saying make sure all your awnings are stowed, and if you haven't left yet, you can
6:08 pm
break your reservation, they say they will be very liberal with their cancellation policy. they just don't want anyone to get hurt. many say they're here for the water and fun, and they'll do their best to try to ride this thing out. >> we're hoping for the best. see where this hurricanes are. either they keep going or die out. so see how it goes. ride it out. if it gets too bad, we'll just go somewhere else. >> reporter: you see the calm water there. the kayaks, paddle boards. the delaware ocean beaches, officials say the good news is they've come back nicely since the spring and winter storms. they're clearing out storm drains. so lots of wheels are now in motion in delaware despite the scene here. a lot of people taking this thing very seriously. hopefully you will, too. we want to make sure you stay safe as the storm approaches. nbc 10 news. >> we can tell you the power and electric companies are bracing for the worst.
6:09 pm
pse & g are bringing in extra crews for power outages. stay updated with the latest on hermine's path. for people heading to the jersey shore, let's check out the beaches from above. george spencer joins us. what are you seeing in ocean city, george? >> reporter: jacqueline, for right now, it is looking every bit like the start of a holiday weekend. really beautiful sights from the sky here over ocean city. the boardwalk and the beach. you can see some nice crowds there along the shore. a couple of people in the water. a few people on the beaches. our pilots commented on the way down here how good the visibility is tonight. that's, of course, expected to change drastically before the holiday weekend is out. some of these same people may be watching heavy rain and potentially even some flooding. certainly a lot of people here hoping for the best. george spencer, nbc 10 news. >> it's disgraceful what's happened with respect to the
6:10 pm
african-american community. how badly they've been treated. >> nbc 10 goes one-on-one with donald trump inside, while protests tangled outside in north philadelphia. see whether or not you'll see rain in your neighborhood. katie: on crime, pat toomey's attacks on me are shameful.
6:11 pm
he's making it up. of course, anyone who commits a violent
6:12 pm
crime needs to be prosecuted -- and put behind bars. narrator: katie mcginty will keep us safe -- more police on the streets, better training and equipment, and take on the gun lobby for gun safety laws. katie: i'm the daughter of a police officer, and the mother of three. i'll stand with law enforcement to fight crime, and protect our families. i'm katie mcginty, and i approve this message.
6:13 pm
all eyes are on hermine's track. our hurricane experts, glenn "hurricane" schwartz, will have an update in a few minutes. now to this. some tense moments during donald trump's visit to philadelphia. there was a lot of shouting and pushing outside north philadelphia. protesters clashed, trump met privately with members of the african-american community. trump met with african-american community leaders at greater exodus baptist church on prod street. trump told nbc 10 he can fix the problems discussed in the meeting. problems like crime. we caught up with philadelphia congressional candidate james jones who was inside that meeting. >> i'm involved with mr. trump in a meeting. we talked about how to bring more jobs back into america. and i believe he can be able to do that. >> some in the african-american community have called the meeting a media stunt.
6:14 pm
so what did donald trump have to say about his visit to philly? nbc 10's lauren mayk spoke to him one on one. she joins us live from north philadelphia. lauren, i know you addressed a lot of topics with him. what did he have to say? >> reporter: we talked about crime, immigration, and also plans the republican nominee has that could affect funding for the city of philadelphia. donald trump in north philadelphia talking to african-american leaders as he makes his push for pennsylvania. >> what did you learn today? >> these are incredible people. we met with numerous african-american folks from the area, and they're having a tremendously hard time. and we will make things so good. >> reporter: in our one-on-one interview, we also talked about immigration, a central issue to trump's campaign. one where plans for undocumented immigrants who have not committed crimes is still unclear. >> once the border is secure and
6:15 pm
we've stopped this horrible flow of illegal immigration, in fact, i just was with an incredible family that lost their daughter to a person that should never have been in this country, illegal immigrant who never should have been in, once that's done over a period of time, we sit back, where is the country, what's happening, and we make a determination for the people that are here that weren't criminals, other than the fact that they came in illegally, and we make that determination at a future date. and hopefully it have been a very positive determination. the first thing we have to do -- >> people could stay and not get legal status? >> here's what i see. i see a possibility that we're going to look at this very, very strongly over a period of time. >> i asked the republican nominee about his plans to withhold federal funds from so-called sanctuary cities like philadelphia. >> we defund sanctuary cities, we hold back money. sanctuary cities are a disaster in this country. >> would that include medicaid
6:16 pm
money? law enforcement money? >> they've going to give them up. sanctuary cities are for criminals to protect themselves. >> reporter: the conversation came just after the fbi released new notes from their investigation of hillary clinton's e-mail setup. trump's response? >> i think that the fbi is ashamed of themselves for their final adjudication for what happened. i think they're ashamed of themselves. >> why do you think that? >> look at these notes. and also, why don't they have tape recordings of this meeting? they're taking notes of the meeting. the notes are horrible, by the way, for her. they're horrible. but why wasn't she put on tape? >> reporter: the clinton e-mails, the foundation has been under scrutiny for how things were handled while hillary clinton was secretary of state. so i asked donald trump what he would do if he is elected to make sure there is no conflict with his business. he said he would put it in a trust and that his children could run it. live in north philadelphia, i'm
6:17 pm
lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. >> lauren, we know you're the only local reporter to interview the presidential and vice presidential candidates one on one. watch all of those interviews on our website now, your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> we've got a big holiday weekend and a big problem. its name is hermine. the center was just inland. now it's getting pretty close to being offshore. we're also seeing some of the outer bands strengthening. this is still a tropical system. and it has a chance to maintain that. now, look at the leading edge that's moved 40 miles in four hours. that's 10 miles an hour. and so it's now about 170 miles from southern delaware. so that would put the rain starting time around noon. so it could start raining as early as noon in southern delaware tomorrow, just to give you an idea. the tropical storm warning, all up and down the jersey shore, all of delaware bay, even the
6:18 pm
delaware river may be affected. gusts of 60 miles an hour at the shore. there's a tropical storm warning until monday at 5:00 p.m. here's the track. northeast, right near the coast. so it doesn't really weaken much. then it strengthens out in the warm waters and stalls. or does a little curve back toward land, or a little loop here. whatever, that's bad. because it keeps spinning that water right toward the beaches and strengthens, too. that's hurricane force winds it's projected to be. the high tide, atlantic city, rehoboth beach, some of these may be record levels. that's the kind of potential that we have. we're talking about potentially having roads closed, as people try to leave the shore. certainly not going to be pleasant sunday and monday. we're going to have minor tidal flooding late saturday, getting
6:19 pm
worse sunday and monday. the flooding in the back bays may not go down for several days. and then, of course, that tidal flooding all the way up into the delaware river. you can see the computer models, very many of them doing that left turn. some of them all the way back to the coast. and we've seen storms like this in history, not many of them, but they all end up bad. saturday, northeast 15 to 30, minor coastal flooding at the shore. there will be a big difference between shore and inland. sunday rain heavy at times. moderate coastal flooding. winds 35 to 55 monday. gusts probably higher. major coastal flooding by then as long as the winds are still onshore. but look at tomorrow. cloudy day. cool day. but not bad. even at the shore it's not as bad. but at the shore it's going to be really bad starting sunday,
6:20 pm
especially. that's when the heaviest rain comes, strongest winds. delaware's going to get hit pretty hard, especially southern delaware, near the delaware beaches. but look at this. p.a. suburbs, chester, montgomery, bucks, may not see any rain, or maybe just a little bit of rain on sunday. lehigh valley, probably no rain. sunshine tomorrow. it's going to be such a sharp edge here. depends where you are as to how bad the weather is going to be. and of course, the shore is not going to be the place to be. and that's not just through monday. even tuesday there could be a little bit of rain and wind associated with that. and then look what happens as we go through the rest of the ten days. once we get rid of this thing, it's going to heat up again. looks like we're going to have another heat wave with temperatures in the 90s by the middle of the week, perhaps extending into next weekend. maybe next weekend would be a better weekend at the shore.
