chemical attacks in syria, where they are based. nearly 60 millers were launched last night after president trump conferred with his military and national security teams. we've learned the president alerted russia about the strike to minimize casualties. he also called members of congress to inform them. now this u.s. offensive comes after images like these circulated from tuesday's chemical attack. >> years of previous attempts at changing assad's behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically. as a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen, and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the united states and its allies. >> reporter: look at the brand-new video just in to the newsroom. it's the first video we're seeing of that syrian airfield that was the target of those 59
u.s. missiles. into the newsroom, this is the first glance at daybreak that we're seeing the damage done to the small airfield there. the kremlin says that russian president vladimir putin believes it is an aggressive state in violation of international law. back to you guys. >> thank you. a member of a syrian family living in the lehigh valley has some tough words for president trump. refbts of sarmad asalli were deported this year before they were allowed to return and stay. >> last night asalli said she's angry about the president's retaliatory attack on a syrian air base. >> now he's on tv talking, oh, these poor syrian children. two months ago he wasn't going to let any refugees into the u.s. of a., and he wanted to turn their backs on the

dark-colored sedan with tinted windows. police say it's unclear if this is related to other attempted kidnapping cases in wilmington over the past weeks. 6:08. let's take you down the shore for a shot of cape may, beach avenue from the marquee de la fayette hotel. >> pretty. >> the sun just coming up. gorgeous out there. will it be gorgeous in other parts the delaware valley? first alert meteorologist erika martin with the most accurate forecast for your neighborhood. i'm confident in saying at least it's not as bad as models showed yesterday and the day before that. we're going to see clouds sticking around, increase in wind speeds and wind gusts. at least it's going to be mainly dry. neighborhoods right now, it looks like the lehigh valley seeing lots of 40s for you. 41 for leonardsville, weste wernersville, 43. wunt port keeping it in the low 40s -- walnut port keeping it in the low 40s. whitehall seeing 43. on to the p.a. suburbs, looking at the temperatures. neighborhoods where you live.

the upper 30s to low 40s. bundle up. the good news is right now models are showing all the rain skirting the philly metro area and nothing here. but the clouds will stick around. ten day on 10 brings us an incredible warmup by the next workweek. we're seeing 60s by sunday. lots of sunshine for saturday and sunday. and then 80s on monday and tuesday. so a very nice warmup. it's going to be much warmer than average for this time of year, and then 60s from there on out. so not a bad tradeoff. >> not a bad tradeoff at all. thank you. looks beautiful. 6:10 on this friday morning. let's take a look at the roads and route 1. >> jessica boyington's got you covered. what are you seeing? yeah, the boulevard around cameras at 17th street. looking like a really good drive for the morning. at least better than yesterday. here, the southbound side. traffic that's moving toward the schuylkill expressway, a little bit slower than the northbound side heading into northeast philadelphia. out in gloucester township, watch for a crash on the 42 freeway headed southbound. you see where we're seeing some
yellow moving through gloucester township. around blackwood, clementon road. all lanes aren't blocked. traffic still is getting by. if you're heading toward sticklerville, you can still get there just fine. northbound doing a bit better. here's 295. of course moving our cameras right on cue, around route 667 which is exit 18. that's where we earlier had the on and off ramps blocked. maybe they were trying to find those blocked offramps. looks like they might be back open. still reports -- there we go. we still have police activity there blocking some of the on and off ramps. that was because of an earlier warehouse fire that happened this morning. and 295 is still open. that's a good thing. to avoid police activity here, you see some of them leaving the scene, as well. it might be in the process of clearing this out of the way. either way, 295 is still open. take 17 or take exit 19 to get around. or the new jersey turnpike if you're heading to delaware or further up to north jersey. those points will be the best now. as soon as it opens again, i'll have you updated. and i'll be back with the next update in ten minutes. >> thank you. more traffic news -- local police are launching a new
campaign to keep drivers safe. >> ahead, the highway where extra eyes will be watching starting this weekend. plus, a high-tech hunt. why the montgomery county bomb squad is bringing up special easter eggs for local kids. >> reporter: and good morning, i'm matt delucia live at citizens bank park. we're a few hours away from the home opener, the phillies are back in action here at citizens bank park. who says you have to have all the fun on the field? what you can do between innings, we'll see if i can get that -- oh! that counts. that counts. we'll have more of the fun and games coming up after the break. i can't get a break.
and nbc 10 tenbcten s the place -- nbc10's the place to watch it. >> such a quiet picture. it will be rocking this afternoon. matt delucia with more on the fun and games ahead for fans today. matt? >> reporter: we're looking forward to it. and of course, we've got a breeze in the air. still feels a little like winter. they have the knit caps you get when you walk in. that will be in good use later. when the phillies come through here, the all-star walk first, it will be a nice home opener. we have a lot of the things you can do outside of the game. i have jason guy here. citizens bank. what kind of things can you do for fun? >> we'll start with the beanbag dott. the first time -- beanbag toss. the first time. and we'll give away prizes, we'll have people showing where the restrooms are, atms, creating a good experience if you're here to watch the game.
>> reporter: i tried the beanbag toss earlier and failed. and the director of fun and games is here -- >> someone's got to be it. >> reporter: someone's got to be it. what can you really do and enjoy this even if you're not into baseball? >> i tell you what, i'll go through the festivities today. 8:00, go to the majestic clubhouse door. there's great merchandise there. come down 12:00, you don't need a ticket for the budweiser opening day block party at seaview way. we'll have go-go gadget ferris wheel. 12:30, gates open, you get that great hat. if you're not at the game, 2:15, you can live stream the player walk you talked about, the leadoff walk on facebook. and it's going to be fun going on. >> reporter: thank you very much. yes. coming out here to citizens bank park, the opening day here. great day for baseball. play ball, everyone. live, matt delucia, nbc10 news. >> you can live stream it or join us on nbc10. catch the home opener action right here on nbc10. our live pregame show begins at 2:00, and then watch the phills take on the nationals, that's at 3:00.
we're psyched for this today. >> i'm going to tell you -- half of the crowd today will be kids. this is typical philadelphia parenting. they'll pull their kids out of school. it's not a holiday. in philadelphia, opening day is a holiday. >> it is a holiday. >> i know. >> that's all right. >> it's good for the kids. so hopefully the weather will be good and cooperate. >> yes. i'm excited because the weather's going to be great. temperatures -- below normal, but at least the rain is going to steer clear of our area. maybe one scattered shower. i think it -- >> just wear a coat. >> and you get the cool hat. >> that's all you need. overall, i think this is a much more favorable forecast. again, i mentioned this earlier, just 48 hours ago, 28 hours ago, models showing more rain in the forecast for today. scattered showers moving through. right now i'm going to leave maybe one light shower literally moving through the area. the big story is the wind gusts increasing by this afternoon.
sustained wind speeds at 15, 20 miles per hour. and temperatures in the 40s because of the stronger wind speeds out of this direction, it will feel colder than the actual temperatures. fee feels-like temperatures, something to not look forward to. bundle up. satellite and radar image, clouds and light rain, to the northwest and west. reading, not getting anything to the ground. this is getting -- we're seeing this light report here, nothing making it to the ground now. the hour-by-hour forecast, we're starting to see clouds develop across the delaware valley at 6:00. pause this at 11:00 a.m. we're seeing rain through parts of the lehigh valley, a wintry mix for parts of mt. pocono. the big story is that we're seeing some rain just to the northeast, just to the northwest. and for the most part, everything steers clear of the philly metro area. so the clouds sometimes can squeeze out a quick shower, but for the most part, this is going
to be dry. gusty to say the least. current winds, 16 miles per hour. 14 for wilmington. philadelphia, 14 for you, allentown, 14. dover, 12 miles per hour for you. they're going to shift and get colder and a little bit stronger. the ten-day on 10 does show also an increase in temperatures into monday and tuesday. saturday looks nice, 58, lots of sunshine. sunday, lots of sunshine. 66 there. a pair of 80s for both monday and tuesday. and on wednesday, i did take out the showers. mostly cloudy for now. 69 degrees. 66 for thursday. and keep it into the 60s, at least until the following sunday when we see 70s. follow us on social media for more updates. back to you. we'll update you on the ride to work. much drier than yesterday -- >> way less going an -- going on than yesterday. slippery spots. this is 422.
around trooper road, eastbound moving toward the schuylkill expressway, we have the right drive time here from 29 toward the schuylkill. nine minutes, i'm going to say that's going to reset itself. and we'll see increase in drive times. in radner, watch for a downed tree between castle fin lane and county line road. that portion of the road is closed. we're still watching this. i haven't seen this closure, actually this closure alert be lifted yet. i want to double check with that. mlk drive because of some of the rain and flooding yesterday, between sweet briar drive, somewhere in between strawberry mansion and east falls, between sweetbriar drive and falls bridge, watching a closure on mlk drive. watch for that. here's 295. we'll end around route 667 in poulsbo. still watching, partially blocking ramps around exit 18 because of a warehouse fire off of the exit ramp. now you see 295 still open. it actually looks like we are starting to let cars through the area. either way for now, you should be good getting on to 95. back to you.

westbound street road off ramp. we have tow trucks on the scene. a few police officers, as well. and you can see these tracks right here. that's how the vehicle got stuck in this accident scene. went into the grass, and it's facing the other way. cleanup to tow this guy out of the way. route 1 southbound to westbound is blocked with the ramp. also, mass transit check-in. everything for amtrak and new jersey transit was supposed to be open. transit hasn't released all tracks yet. expect delays. transit trying to get back to norm normal. septa running on time. same for patco. 6:32. we're watching breaki ining developments in syria. tomahawk missiles were launched last night. syrian officials say seven people were killed. niner hurt. the russian military says six syrian jets were destroyed. this morning health care reform the kremlin con -- this morning,
the kremlin confirmed it received advanced warning about the strike. russia and syria condemned the attack. japan, turkey, and australia voicing support this morning. president trump ordered the strike on airfields after the chemical attack that killed almost 70 this week. >> it is in this vital national security interest of the united states to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. >> one after the other. local lawmakers are responding to the president's surprise order. >> most agree something needs to be done. not everyone agrees on the method. republican senator toomey says, "the civilized world has to respond if the united nations does not take appropriate action, then the united states must." democratic senator chris koonz says that he's encouraged president trump has taken on sawyer but says, "i'm gravely --
taken on syria but says, "i'm gravely concerned that the united states is enganging further militarily with syria without a well-thought-out comprehensive plan. frankly, the president's actions generate for questions than answers." brendan boyle was asking to recall congress into an emergency session to talk about policy. >> congressman boyle, thanks very much for joining us. >> thank you. >> representative barbara lee is calling this an act of war. do you agree with that characterization? >> well, there are previous examples of limited strikes not leading necessarily to full-fledged war. whether it is the way president clinton acted in 1993 in response to saddam hussein's attempt on the life of former president bush or president reagan attacking gadhafi in the late 1980s. that said, it is clear that we need to return to an emergency session of congress. we shouldn't be out two weeks
that right now speaker ryan has us out of session. frankly, four years ago congress abrogated its duty and did not do what it should have done at that time. that was come up with an actual syria policy. we've essentially been sleepwalking there ever since. now we're in this situation where just one week ago the president of the united states and secretary of state said that it wasn't u.s. policy to remove assad, and now here we are a week later, and we're launching a limited strike. the bottom line, congress needs to return toception and finally have a -- to session and finally have a concrete syria policy. >> what was your immediate reaction when you heard about the air strikes, and what happens next? >> well, i'm a member of the foreign affairs committee. i knew yesterday in washington from various reports, both repeated and also things that we were made aware of that this was strongly under consideration and would have a more immediate
timetable than was originally expected. in terms of what happens next, we have to avoid the mistakes of 100 years ago. it's ironic that we are commemorating the u.s. entry into world war i this week. something that the united states select walked its way into. the same with the world. 20 million people ended up dying. here we are, the situation in syria where russian planes and troops are on the ground. so as we want to protect the civilian population -- keep in mind, 12 million people have already been displaced by the syrian civil war. our humanitarian interests are to act. we want to do so in a strategic way, that we don't end up leading to a larger conflict especially with russia. >> congressman, thanks for sharing your thoughts today. >> thank you. >> and you can count on nbc10 for continuing coverage on syrian air strikes. we'll bring you the latest on the air and on the nbc10 app.
6:36. 46 degrees. three other stories making headlines -- first, a developing story in delaware. a child kidnapped in new castle county is safe. witnesses saw the 4-year-old girl being kidnapped on sugar plum court in the pike creek neighborhood around 7:00 last night. she was found unharmed two hours later in wilmington's banning park. police continue to search for her abductor. more state troopers are expected to take the stand as the trial continues for accused cop killer eric frein. he had to be treated at the hospital after hitting his head brushing his teeth in his jail cell. he's charged with killing corpor corporal brian dixon and injuring trooper alex douglas at their barracks. the senate is expected to vote to confirm judge neil gorsuch to the supreme court. yesterday republicans changed the senate's voting rules to enable confirmation of gorsuch by a simple majority vote. the gop went so far in calling
for the nuclear option to thwart a democratic filibuster to block the gorsuch nomination. 6:38. another week ago, there was concern the game might be in jeopardy because of the rain. as we got closer, i'm glad it looks like the game is going to be played -- you just need the coat. >> a couple of layers, right, erika? >> that's right. and even yesterday's model runs were showing that there could be scattered showers moving through. and this is what happens -- yeah, pretty dry. i want to show satellite and radar image. here's a depiction of the rain. we're also seeing clouds. notice here we're seeing white clouds. those are mid and upper level clouds. there's a lot of moisture in the atmosphere. we could see one or two showers squeezed out. really, that's a little too science-y. i'm not going there. we could see showers for the lehigh valley. not very organized. i'm not too concerned with that.
here's a great image of the mid to upper level clouds. gorgeous, sunshine at 6:35 a.m. look at the bottom of the screen for the most accurate seven-day forecast. we'll look at the neighborhoods in the p.a. suburbs. malvern, 42 degrees. west bradford township, 42. i never give you a shout out. chester heights, for you, 43 degrees. warrenton, 43. new hope along with newtown, 44. perkasy, 42. delaware seeing lots of 40s and 50s, as well. marshallton, 46. talliville, 44. reedy point at 46. georgetown currently at 50 degrees. your neighborhood for tomorrow -- a nice climb. temperatures are not going to be seasonal but close to that for many. here, easton, let me get out of your way. lots of sunshine for tomorrow. something to look forward to. 57 is the expected high temperature. it looks like the p.a. suburbs also seeing lots of 50s.
a mix of sun and clouds. so keep in mind that some may see more clouds and some of you may see more sunshine. an area of high pressure will develop and pretty much stay in charge at least for the next several days. i'm not going to get to my ten day on 10 right now, but i'll give you the details. it's going to be 80 on monday. maybe 80, 82 on tuesday. more details coming up in a bit. back to you. >> whoa. >> thank you. 6:40. 20 minutes before 7:00 a.m. we have a disabled vehicle on route 1. >> let's find out exactly where. nbc10 first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington has that. just in ben salem. that area. route 1 southbound. coming from the area around street road. heading to westbound street road, we have a vehicle off of the ramp here. now, they did have the ramp completely blocked off a few minutes ago. i don't really know why nay did this. there were police officers here on the scene and tow trucks, as well. they all left. now the car is still here. that's why nay got there originally -- why they got there originally. you see the car drove off the road. you see the tracks on the side grassy area. now the ramp is back open, but the vehicle is still there.
i'm assuming they have to come back and move it. i'll keep an eye on that for you. updates on 295. we had an earlier fire, building fire around 2:00 or so which was causing problems on 295. all the lanes on 295 have remained open near exit 18. this is near route 667. but the on and off ramps were closed in both directions. now it looks like they're back open. you see there are vehicles moving through the area. we still have police activity there on either side. watch for that. other than that, i don't think you're going to need alternates anymore. if you want to be safe, take the new jersey turnpike. you've heard about instagram. what about skin-stagram? >> a new phenomena among teens that keeps social media posts secret. that can't be good. next, we'll explain the secret site and advice for parents. and wired for fun. a local bomb squad putting a
