not able to produce breast milk i might as well help. >> reporter: she shipped 300 ounces a one month supply spaced in -- packed in ice adding several hundred dollars to her bank account. >> my husband is the only one who works and it helped us by thing we wouldn't be able to afford. >> reporter: she found the industry online. the demand is fueled by a slew of medical studies which find breast milk can boost immune system to iq. money from mothers who are unable to breast feed themselves helps pay this stay at home mom. desiree's milk money gave her the wedding hf her dream from the dress to his tuxedo to the decoration and the ring. >> and the first month i made like close to 1200 dollars. >> reporter: but the exchange is not without writesis are being. what little screening is all based on the honor system. >> you don't know the medical background of the donor. you also don't know if the
mother has been on drugs. the mother could be contaminated with disease. >> reporter: because it is considered a food and not a drug the fda doesn't regulate breast milk. the fda does not recommend buying breast milk but through approved milk banks and it may cost more but lens lessens the dangers because it can trance mate hiv and herpes. >> it's thousands of e-mails back and forth between people before they buy milk because they want to make sure it's the best for the baby. >> reporter: all good intentions and i am doing it with the proper way. but you you never know. >> okay. so that was juju change reporting. we want your two cents. what do you think about women selling breast milk and a lot of you already weighing in this morning about this idea. >> chrissy says just what i want. some coo coo sending poison breast milk for my baby, not. >> tarry adds people have to do what they have to do and i don't want to knock anyone as

>> what? what's the fda in fda food? every single mother in the newsroom said i would consider selling it but i would never be on the receiving end. so, it's interesting. it is up for debate. >> equally notable the men are silent. >> of course. the way we like it. >> 9:0 #. the best way to be. miracle on the hudson will be leaving within the hour heading down i-95 and over to i-70. >> yeah. well it had to move because maryland state troopers said they found it got on top of it and started to take pictures with it. >> had to be guarded overnight and police will escort the plane later this morning. >> abc2 news roosevelt leftwich caught a glimpse and so did onlookers yesterday. >> reporter: it's the reason why reporters have jobs. curiosity. folks drive for miles bringing lawn chairs and sit and stand by the highway for hours just for the sure joy of saying i seen it. the it being the miracle on thehudson plane you remember
that the u.s. airplane that hit the geese went into the hudson and the hoareo pilot and all that stuff. but that ain't nothing until you seen the same plane on the back of the flatbed. >> like a train. if you never seen a train wreck or anything like that, it's the same thing or a boat. they said queen mary was coming down delaware one time. we missed by a few hours. >> reporter: he mised that show so he is not going to miss this one. and neither are the duncans so they hope. texas family interrupted the cross country trip for a glimpse of the plane. they saw it when they crossed the delaware memorial bridge and thought it strange to see the plane on the back of the truck. curiosity got the best of them. >> when we came over, she looked on the iphone and saw what it was and we stopped to see it and it hasn't come. >> reporter: after more than an hour of waiting, the family decide curiosity cost too much time and hit the road and six minutes and 38 seconds later, here it comes. and there it goes. along with the escort at 50
miles an hour. in case you missed it, here it is again. here it comes. and there it goes. it will be a test on this later. but these weren't the only people ready to see the elephant. all up and down interstate 95, small groups of people were clustered around to see the plane. and chesapeake house there were more folks from elkton and tourist from india and guy with a big dog and little baby all waiting. and here it comes. and there it goes. more than an hour wait for just 30 seconds. and why not? because it's not every day you get to see a miracle of engineering or from the hudson. >> i thought it was, you know a. lot big are but here, it looks like a big tractor trailer. >> all right. that was rosie leftwich reporting love the story. you can follow progress on the plane on abc2news.com and the story is on the slide show. just scroll down to the end of the story and click on the link and you can follow the plane. >> quickly they were talking

is a hiv positive or drug user and as we learned, some diseases are transferable through breast milk. leslie says sorry you don't know what antibodies that milk has. so a lot of things to consider but if you want to weigh in on the hot topic, your two cents is welcomeed at wmar. go to the fan page on facebook leave your thoughts and we will continue to share them throughout the course of the morning. all right look at this. kids in tulsa oklahoma working to beat the heat and there is no better way to do that than obviously put on the swim suit and play in the water. the chances are kids in baltimore will be down at inner harbor or at a pool in the city doing hopefully something very similar to this. if you've been outside, you know it's pleasant outside. it's not too hot. but, just to give you an idea of how quickly things warm up, we have the heat gauge to give you an idea. you point it at something a car
and we know they heat up. and it's in the 90s. just from that, 92, 93 degrees. you point it in the shade and you get a completely different reading. so a reminder as you stay in the shade and who better to tell us than the very smart and wonderful doctor from hopkins. we are here talking about the temperatures because it's going to warm up later in the week. 99 degrees. and for elderly patients, that can be a issue right? >> that's right. hot is very hot. anything over 90 you get really worried about an older adult because older adults can't sense the heat as well as younger adults can. and they can't sense when they are thirsty as early as we can as well. so because of those reasons, they have to be very careful out in the weather. >> are there any symptom you look for ori anyway to know if you have a elderly parent it's too many time to come in from gardening. >> what he interesting is older people don't act the way we think they would or a younger person might. it's not oh i am hot or sweating because they are sweat bug it's things being confused and feeling dizzy and more
fatigueed than usually and not making quite as much sense when they are speaking. so all of those things can be signs of possible heat exhaustion. >> when they do get hot what do you do? what could could you -- what do you recommend? going to a doctor? >> it's important because most older adults are on medication and many can affect the way your blood pressure works. and can affect your fluid status. so it's important to call your doctor and find out if the medicines need to be adjusted when the weather gets hotter so things like water pills, blood pressure pills and allergy medication and anything that affects the way you manage your fluid need to be adjusted when the weather gets this way. bring them in and call the doctor and find out if there's an adjustment and keep them hydrated. >> we are looking at video of cooling centers that they have around the city where you can go in and get air conditioning and they will provide water. that's good ideal if you are elderly and if they don't have air conditioning and it could be 99 right. >> absolutely because it's about humidity and your ability to sweat. when you sweat you sweat out water and salt and potassium so
it's important to avoid sweating if at all possible. getting to a cooling center is important. >> before we go quickly, you said there's place to go to find a recipe to replace and replenish if you get dehydrated. >> right. it's easy just a leader -- liter of-- excuse me a quart of water and a third cup of sugar and quarter teaspoon of salt. have sugar and salt not the artificial stuff but the real stuff and add a little lemon or orange to kind of give yourself flavor. >> all right. i love it. is there a place people can reach you or a website to go to if they have questions? >> yes hop kips medicine.org/jar at ribs. >> and we will put the link to the -- on the web sie. it's a pleasure having you here. stay cool story to bring -- sorry to bring you out. now back to you and lynette in the studio. all right. a weather alert now and the toll the heat can take on the roads. look at this road in jackson,
mississippi, u.s. 49 and that's no speed bump. road crews think heat actually caused this road to buckle. so oh, yes, they are dealing with it and jackson mississippi and we are going to be dealing with heat moving in as we go through the next few days as well. so right now, into baltimore we are at 77 and check out jackson, yes, they are at 80 and they are going to be warming up as they go throughout the day and we will be warming up too and we will be downright hot as we head into tomorrow. the reason why, well we have high pressure building in across the area and this is a surface high sliding to the south a little going throughout the day. but what we are watching is this upper level ridge that is going to be moving across the area and as it does so, that's when it is going to move in the hot air and the humidity as well. othat's -- shall so that's what we have in store as we go through tomorrow and the next day. so for today, i am forecasting a high around 89, 90 degrees. and i am forecasting partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies and you can see complex trying to move in as we go throughout the day and that could bring more clouds in. we are dealing with poor air
quality and we have a code orange in effect as we head into tomorrow, that's when we heat up. oh, yes. mostly sunny and 96 hot and humid and add in the humidity and yes the heat index is going to be right around 100. the uv index for today for tomorrow is going to be the extreme category that means you can head out and about and get burned like that. as we check out seven-day forecast see the 99 that will be getting as we head into thursday. let's toss it over to charley. >> all right. thanks a lot. you can always keep up with the weather here at abc2news.com. we have severe weather alerts right there on the website. also if you want to come back to me quickly, you can upload it mobilely this is a copy right now of the abc2 weather alert for your ipad. check it out right there. always keeping you up working for you as we do here at abc2 especially when the very latest in the severe weather alert. news time is 9:20 this morning. and an elementary school signed a college is making all the
