8:02 am
pblocking eastbound lanes. pthose drivers should avoid the parea either taking-road or st. pjoe's road. pwe also are seeing westbound ptraffic, basically blocked from pentering southbound 75. pwe were seeing some heavier jams pin the area. plooks like that westbound ptraffic seems to have lifted if pyou do try to access 75 psouthbound from this point. pbest bet probable head down old asco road to wesley chapel pboulevard entrance ramp. plooks like still in process of pmoving that one out. pmeantime big jams here westbound pi-4 a new crash between 75 and p30 one with the center lane pblocked. pwe do have back ups all way back ptowards man go road solidly. pyou'll probably want to exit as pfar west as that point take u.s. p92 around this crash site. p>> here with a developing story, pwe could see travel times pimproving a little bit if roposal to bring elevated lanes pto gandy boulevard becomes preality. ptampa hillsborough expressway pauthority just approved p$2.6 million for a firm to
8:03 am
pfox 13 shayla reeves is live in ptampa. pnow shayla, do you know where pthose lanes would actually pstart? p>> yes, good morning to you. pthose lanes are actually going pto pick up where the selman pexpressway ends and take it all pthe way to the gandy bridge. pthis of course, you can see pthese new lanes traveling on pthem as soon as 2020 we're phearing. pand here's what you need to know pthough if is part of your pregular route. pin fact gandy boulevard would plikely see some elevated lanes pconstruction beginning some if i pam around 2017 towards the end pof the year into 2018. pagain plans to wrap that up by p2020. pthe money just approved for the roject. pand just oh to give you an idea pof what we're talking about phere, an engineering firm has palready been hired to put ptogether the plans a pconstruction company will need pto build a selman west pextension. pextension is toll road. pexperts say the lanes will help pwith congestion and also provide
8:04 am
pmay may need to get out of area pquickly especially in case of an pevacuation. p>> when an evacuation should phappen, pinellas people are pgoing to come over and they are pgoing to clog gandy boulevard pwith the extension in place we pcan put all of that pinellas pcounty traffic up on the pextension, both lanes can turned pin eastbound direction. pand that will leave all of gandy pboulevard and the regular selman pexpressway eastbound lanes for psouth tampa and gandy south of ptampa residents to evacuate. p>> and in addition to that, one pof the changes you'll also see pis typically if you travel gandy pboulevard now the lanes such as pmanhattan low is, also west pthose. pwell once this extension is pbuilt, you'll be it i believe pskip right over those lanes on pabove. pso this is certainly an palternative for folks that used pto using gandy boulevard to get pwhere they need to go in morning pof course we'll keep you posted
8:05 am
pthank you so much. pi know lots of folks will be pinterested to see how that story pdevelops. pmeantime on to this crash story. plakeland family got quite the pwake up call this morning. pdriver of a white pick up truck pyou can see right there crashed pthrough a fence, ran right into pat front of this house. poff of parker street. phurt. pthe lakeland fire department is pusing a truck and a tower to pshore up the building right now. pthey may want to make sure porch pas well roof do not collapse. pwe're hearing the driver ran paway after this crash. p>> a dog is missing this morning pafter a house fire in tampa. pbut if it wasn't for a neighbor pwho was up late praying this may phave been a whole lot worse. pthis is was scene just a few phours ago heavy smoke filling pthe air firefighters working to ptry to get a control of it. pwe spoke to woman who saw flames pcoming from her neighbor's phouse. pmoments after that a fire pstarted. p>> i jumped up and look at my pwindow as i look in my window i psee a flame and i'm oh my god, pmom.
8:06 am
pi got to go. pi jumped the grabbed my phone i pwent for running around the pcorner. pas i'm running i'm actually pcalling the police at the same ptime. pso as i'm calling the police at pthe same time, i'm just freaking pout hey, hey, hey. pit's a house on fire. pis house on fire? p>> three people and two dogs pwere able to get out of that phouse. pone of those dogs is missing pright now though. p>> freak accident may have put a pyoung tampa bay area woman in phospital. pbut her story we learned is far pfrom over. pon friday 22-year-old skyler and pa friend were white water prafting when a boulder fell pdirectly on her head causing a pwhole list of fractures. pthis happened in columbia. pdoctors in nearby town were able pto save her life. pbut they could just two so much. plast night sky letter was flown pto jackson memorial in miami pwhere she's going to have pseveral surgeries. pflight was not covered by her pinsurance. pfriends and family members are ptrying to raise enough money to
8:07 am
pso far they've raised more than p$146,000. pthey are hoping to reach p$200,000. p>> every mother wants there pnewborn to be healthy. pnot every pregnancy sadly enough pis risk free. pbut there is a few prenatal ptest, helping to find pabnormalitiesally nine weeks pinto pregnancy. pthis is something. pwhat an advancement in medical ptechnology. pwe will bring in dr. jo to pdiscuss this this morning. pgood morning to you. pgood morning. pwhat is this test? phow does it work? pyou know we looked at pan ra ma pbut multiple tests like verify, pharmony, whaer they are doing is plooking for fetal or mra seven pfall genetic material pcirculating in mother's pbloodstream they basically draw pblood from the mom and they look pfor these things. pand they can determine if the pbaby is male or female at nine pweeks. pbut then they can also look for pthings called micro deletions a iece of chromosome is missing pthose can intellectually and pneurologically challenged have pseizures.
8:08 am
psyndrome and other types of psyndromes where there are pmultiple chromosomes present. p>> i, you know think about how regnancy. pthere is any chance that some of pthat could be wrong or possibly pyou might want to give the baby pmore time to develop before you pknow anything definitively? pabnormality. pgoing to trigger additional ptesting. pyou may have for go and do some pchore antic sampling. pand amniocentesis. pdepending on what's happening pthey will do ultra sounds of pcourse. pso yeah, some cases i think it pis troubling to the parent. pthere can be some false ositives. pthey say it 99 percent accurate pand accuracy yet. paccurate. pbut that doesn't mean there are pnot false positives. pand when you look at mom who is plower risk say for down psyndrome, they are saying that pthe false positive rate can high pas 67 percent, at least when pthey are higher risk moms as pthey advance in maternal age or
8:09 am
pdown syndrome, that false ositive rate drops to 20 ercent. pso a huge difference there. pso you have to know going into pthis what is going to tell you. phow to interpret it and they phave to have genetic counselors pthere for you in the event that pyou come up that you're not pnormal risk. pbut there are moms that are at pthat 35 year mark that may not pwant to have an amniocentesis. pi've told if this test is pnegative it is pretty much pnegative. pand so, you can possibly skip pthat amnio when you're at that padvanced paternal age. p>> is there harm in doing pamniocentesis? pthere can be. pthere's always risk for it. pand that's why we look at 35 as pthat one magical point where the prisk of amniocentesis is about pequivalent to risk of that down psyndrome. pso there's kind of an pequilibration there. pbut certainly when is warned and pneeded certainly amnios are you pknow should be done and that prisk is, you know, you take that poption. pbut if you don't need one, why
8:10 am
pright. pexactly. pyou know i listen to you talk pabout this i wonder in your pmedical opinion i'm sure that psometimes this might in some pcases, this might present a retty ethical issue for these pnears get news they may not want pto hear. pabs, yes. pone obstetricians look, knowing pahead of time i've had moms say pit doesn't matter what wrong pwith them i'm going through regnancy. pbetter. psome of genetic abnormalities pcould also mean a heart defect por something else wrong with in pa baby. pso they would have the mom pdeliver it in place where pthere's a good nicu. pthey know ahead of time they can pread, they understand what to pdo. palso when you know ahead of ptime, then, sometimes if can pborn. pso maybe you will get them into pof in a nature. pyou know you will have to do pthose things. pit's been a benefit there. pi have talked to someone else pwho has child with down psyndrome. phe really wants me to tell eople that look there can be
8:11 am
pand certainly that's another pthing to look at. pso yeah. pdefinitely. pyou have to note, really have to pbe educated when you take one of pthese tests. pdon't just go into it i want to pknow if i'm having a boy or pgirl. preally understand what the test pis about and understand how it pcan benefit you. pbut understand what you're going pto do if does come back ositive. pright. pbecause that's kind of thing. pif good news good news if bad pnews awfully is a long time to pbe in agony. pgot to leave it there dr. jo. pdave is back in few minutes with psome rain in 7 day. lus the event is called raise pthe roof. pbut actually they are lowering pit. pright, jen? pi guess you got to raise it up pfirst to lower it. pmaybe you're rights. pmaybe you're right. pyou look good in a hard hat. pwho knows. pwhat i do know i'm got hard hat pon that means we're getting pready to work on this home and pfor habitat for humanity. praising the roof lowering the proof putting on a roof i can ptell you that for sure. pwe will talk to some of the
