pin the afternoon that turned out pto be stronger than the morning. p>>laura: i've never had a pgreater appreciation for our app pthan i did yesterday. p>>russell: dellagado talks to me pway too much. p>>dave: when you're in your car pand you're listening to music pand a warning comes out, you're pnot going to know, right? punless you have that. pso it's like the one time you pwant paul yelling at you, right? p>>russell: that's right. p>>dave: el nino warning has been poff course as advertised. pwe've had severe weather and pthis was just kind of eery as pthis -- another tornado moves pthrough the town of duette. pnow, remember that was the same ptown that unfortunately lost a pcouple of lives last month in a ptornado. pthis time it touched down in an popen field. pvisual confirmation thankfully pno damage. pwhen you go to charlotte county, pnear deep creek, this was a much plarger circulation.
pdown to the ground at the same ptime so you can see just by plooking at the radar that this pwas stronger. pthis was an ef 1 tornado, 97 pmile-per-hour winds estimated pthere from the weather service. p33 homes damaged. pfive major damage and eight pvehicles picked up and moved. pthankfully no serious injuries pbut it could have been a lot pworse. pthese were the two confirmations pthat we had yesterday plus some pother minor wind reports that pcame in but obviously it was pmuch worse further to the north pin the carolinas and virginia. pthis morning behind the front, pit's still windy. ptemperatures are manageable. pwe're at 53. ptampa, new tampa, wesley chapel, pthere's one spot, inverness has pgotten below 50 degrees. pi think crystal river goes below p50. pcoming up soon as well, some pcolder air continues to pour in. pnow, thankfully the sun will be pup in less than 45 minutes. pthat will help a little bit but pit's still going to be a much
p56 in bradenton. pmid 50s for you in highlands pcounty. pand in brandon, actually crystal priver, okay, 22 degrees colder pthan it was yesterday at this ptime. pbrandon 20, tampa 19. pit is a noticeable difference poutside this morning versus pyesterday. pand that wind is not helping. p20 to 28 mile-per-hour wind pgusts but believe it or not, pthis is better. pwhen i first came in, there were pwinds gusting 33, 35 miles per phour. pso windy will be the theme of ptoday as we get a little psunshine to mix in. pwe'll see a few cold air clouds pstreaming through from time to ptime. pbut with that colder air moving pin, even though the sun is ptrying to warm us up, the net presult keeps our temperatures prunning about 10 degrees below pnormal. pas i mentioned before, we're in plate february now so 10 degrees pbelow normal is not all that pbad. p64 for a high temperature.
pyou're going to wake up tomorrow pmorning, go much cooler, 49 for pthe overnight low. plower 40s expected to the north pand then sunshine and punseasonably cool air tomorrow. p62 for a high temperature. pyeah, that's well, well below pnormal this time of year. pby sunday we're gorgeous pweather, near 70. pdoesn't get back to normal until ptuesday. panother front looks to threaten pus with rain, strong storms pwednesday into thursday of next pweek. pvanessa? p>>vanessa: thank you. pwe're at 6:17. ptaking a look at pinellas county palong 275, we were monitoring pthe cam radio here at 38th pavenue north. pthere was some construction that pit was pointing towards with plane blocks and looks like pthat's cleared out. pwe have smooth sailing for folks phitting the roads in this area. pheading southbound through the pstretch, 375 coming towards inellas bayway, four minute pride.
p75 northbound and i-4 westbound pas well. p>>dave: 6:17. pare you lucky in love? pmaybe you have the wrong job. p>>laura: tinder has come up with pthe most attractive jobs for men pand women and according to jen, pwe are in luck or at least prussell is. p>>russell: oh, really? p>>jennifer: you are, russell. plucky in love. paccording to tinder, tv ersonalities are the fifth most pright swiped men on the app. psadly, same is not true for pwomen. plaura and i are out of luck. pwho cares? pwe're spoken for, right? pall right. pso here is a look at the top pfive most attractive jobs for pmen on tinder. ilots, go figure, number one. pfounder or entrepreneur, number ptwo. pfirefighters are number three. pand of course, tv and radio ersonalities at number five and
prhodes, how handsome he is. pwomen, physical therapists, pinterior designers second pfollowed by entrepreneurs, ublic relations jobs are fourth pand teachers round out the top pfive. pand probably could have guessed pthis one. pmodels are in the top 10 for pboth men and women. ptinder says million of users phave added professions to their rofiles since they made the poption a few months ago and they psay people who link their jobs pare more likely to find passion. pyou stud, russell rhodes. p>>laura: you're so right pswipable. p>>russell: do you and i yet know pwhat it means? p>>laura: on tinder, if you right pswipe, they go into your ortfolio. pif you're left swiped, then pyou're out. pi'm just glad we're out of the pright swipe generation. p>>russell: i won't be doing a

p>>taylor: how cute is this? pnala, a gentle giant of a dog pjust sits patiently as her young phow many goes through a complete pcheckup with her set doctor ptoys. p>>russell: adorable. p>>laura: it's like a person. pa thermometer, checking the pears. pseriously just like a person, pvery gentle. pand then at the end, brooklyn pgives her a big hug. pthe whole thing, there it is. pyay. p>>russell: good, good. p>>taylor: so cute. pnext up we have an endearing hoto that's getting tons of pattention online. pit was shared by the popular pfacebook page called love what pmatters. pit claims to show a husband pkindly helping his wife pick out pthe perfect shade of makeup. pall right. pso in the caption, it says in art, she was having a girl pmoment in a panic, struggling to
phe calmed her down, helped her pfind her color and kissed her on pthe forehead. pit was a simple way to show how pbig his love was for her. pa reminder the body grows old pbut the heart doesn't have to. phow sweet is that? p>>russell: i can't talk right pnow. p>>taylor: so sweet. plastly, for a final hot click, pwe have a little pup who can't pquite figure out how the big pdogs walk on the treadmill. phis name is bandit. phe's a rescue pit bull, just padorable. pthis guy has got it. phe was like, yes. pand this guy is like, no. p>>russell: good ones today. p>>taylor: we'll be voting, you pguys. p>>russell: that's right. pit's thursday. p>>laura: the golf course is pdamaged by yesterday's severe pweather.
prespond to an active s (phone ringing) you can't deal with something, by ignoring it. but that's how some
presidential candidates seem to be dealing with social security. americans work hard, and pay into it. so our next president needs a real plan to keep it strong. (elephant noise) (donkey noise) hey candidates,
p>>dave: almost 6:30. pa gorgeous start to the day. phowever, calmer and still windy poutside. pthose north-northwest winds with pthis vantage point about 14 pmiles per hour. pevery once in a while we stream pclouds through today. plakeland 54 with the northwest pwind at 17. pthe winds have been pretty gusty
pthe strongest i've seen this pmorning has been 33 miles per phour. pi do expect windy conditions to plast throughout the day today as pwell as the cooler air settling pin. pso high temps will make their pway back to the mid 60s for ptoday. pvanessa, how are things on the proads? p>>vanessa: quiet which is good pfor folks getting up and getting pout the door right now. p6:30 is the time. pwe have a look in the area of olk parkway and i-4 and we do phave volumes picking up in this parea, still looking pretty clear pas far as those travel times. pheading from this point going ptowards that 75 exit is just a p17 minute ride right now. p>>laura: thank you. psome of our top stories this pmorning, clearwater police say a pwoman called 911 to say that her p3-year-old son was in the car, pin her car when it was stolen. pall the while, he was safe in a inellas park daycare. olice did end up finding the pcar but only after it crashed pand the man behind the wheel was parrested.
pangel ica and her boy friend padmitted they were lying the pwhole time. pit's not clear why. pbadillo bonded out of jail an phour ago. pthey were charged with calling p911 and filing false reports. pthe boy is with his grandparents palong with his sister. p>>russell: a former animal pcontrol worker is accused of pstealing thousands in donation pmoney. pthe office manager at the bishop panimal shelter until she was pfired pfired. pshe took more than $66,000. pshe faltered the books to show pless cash coming in by omitting padoption fees. p>>laura: new images from myakka ines golf club. pthis is the story we were ptalking about a moment ago. powners claim a small tornado ptouched done yesterday, whipping ptrees around. pthere was even n alligator ptrying to swim into a drainage
pyou might remember that in pnovember of last year, two pgators fought each other on the psame course. premember that picture? p>>russell: the seminole hard prock in tampa is making some phistory and breaking gender pbarriers. p>>laura: for the first time pever, they are hiring mail -- pmale servers. pit's a story raising eyebrows. p>>russell: it's cool. pi think. p>>laura: i didn't realize that pgender differentiation was pthere. p>>russell: p>>reporter: absolutely. pit's been going on many years. pvegas is the same situation for pmany of the casinos. pdo you know what? pthis is a big move for the hard prock. pyou know, as we mentioned. pwaitresses have been at the pcenter of casinos for many pyears. pthe fact they're making this pmove is a very big move and you pknow, the times are changing and
pseeing. paccording to the executives phere, more than 50% of the pcustomers that walk into that pcasino are women so obviously pthis change targets those pguests. phard rock is planning to hire 50 pmen as servers on the casino pfloor as a first on the roperty. pit currently employs 170 drink pserves pservers, all women. pthey want to expand the amount pof services on the casino floor pso they need to hire more pemployees. pthey held a job fair and preceived several job papplications. pit's not the only casino for pmale servers. pin atlanta city, new jersey they pmade this move. pthey'll wear boots, black pants, pbutton down shirt and red pundershirt as well. pit's meant to watch the -- match pthe waitresses. pthey're paid $3.25 an hour plus
pcurrently hiring for those ositions. pcoming up a little later, we phope to speak with the public prelations person at the hard prock to get a better idea of who pand when they're hoping to fire. psooner rather than later. p>>laura: it makes sense. pall right. pthank you. plast night governor scott signed pa series of bills, including pones that bans backyard gun pranges. pthe bill bans the recreational puse of firearms on residential roperty when other homes are pnearby. pissue caused a stir last year in pst. petersburg. pjoseph gallaradi built a gun prange in his backyard. pneighbors caught wind and they pwere not happy. phe eventually took it apart, pthough, when he was offered a pfree gun range membership. pthe new law specifically states pthat property owners can still pfire a gun to protect themselves por their property. pviolating the ban is punishable pup to a year in jail and a p$1,000 fine. pit goes into effect july 1. p>>russell: it's 6:34 and this
prepresentative patrick neveb pintroduced a bill that would pallow guns in colorado schools. phe is a survivor of the pcolumbine high school shooting pand says more of his friends pwould still be alive today if pmore good people had guns. pthe bill will allow teachers pwith concealed weapons permits pto carry weapons on school pgrounds. pthis happens far too often in a pschool, in a movie theater, psomeone pulls a gun and just pstarts shooting. pit's called an active shooter pand in just a few minutes, lives pare lost, changed forever. plaw enforcement trains for this pterrible scenario. pand how they train has changed pbecause of one tragedy. pthat one we were just talking pabout. p>> when you think of an active pshooter situation, this one pcomes to mind. pthe columbine high school pshooting in 1999. pfor law enforcement, columbine pchanged everything. p>> before it was considered a ptactical situation. pactive shooter, tactic which pmeans you let the people who
pcome respond to that type of psituation which, in essence, pmeant a swat team, a tactical punit. pafter columbine, you want to ptalk about a change. pnow we've changed where everyone phas become a tactical deputy pofficer that you get there and pyou get there as fast as you can pand you get in there and stop pthat threat. pour main focus is to stop that pthreat and preserve life. p>> door right. pdoor left. p>>russell: and that's why they ptrain. pat the tactical training site, phillsborough county deputies ptrain for active shooter pscenarios. pthis building is used for ptraining for every deputy. pchanged. pno deputy will have the same pscenario. peven experienced deputies come phere to train. p>> no matter what kind of guns pwe give them, what kind of ammo pwe give them, there's still a phuman being operate that go pweapon. pwe have to train that person and pthe way we do it, we expose them
pwhile they're going through the ptraining process, they can pformulate that plan so when they pget to an active situation, pthey're like, i've seen that pbefore. pi've seen something similar to pthat. p>>russell: no one wants another pcolumbine, sandy hook or san pbernardino pbernardino. pthe reality is it will happen pagain and the hillsborough pdeputies must be ready for it. pso much to think about in very plittle time. p>> who is the good guys? pwho is the bad guys? pwho has weapons? pwho is your shooter? phow many bad guys are there? pyou're processing this pinformation as you're trying to pdo it as quickly as you can to pgo stop the shooter. p>>russell: another thing to pthink about here is the length pof time involved. pan active shooter can be in, do ptheir damage and be out or kill pthemselves just a matter of pminutes. pand while law enforcement will pget there, what can we do to rotect ourselves until they do?
pthat tomorrow whether you run, pfight. pwe'll have that tomorrow. p>>laura: scary to even think pabout. p>>russell: i'm the same way. p>>laura: you said when you were pthere, i was talking to you when ptraining center was. pthe walls move. p>>russell: they can completely pchange that building so that plike if a deputy had been going pthrough the year before and they pturned right, now they might phave to turn left. pyou see a guy walking backwards. pyou have to think. pyou have to think. p>>laura: all right. pcoming up, dave has a much more leasant looking forecast on the pway. pit gets cooler today, too. pthen teaching kids to speak.
p>>dave: top 'o the morning to pyou again. pwhat a beautiful start to the pday we have. pwe've got sunshine, we'll see a plittle cloud cover with that psunshine but as far as our ptemperatures go, we're pretty pclose to normal. pi'll be it they're going the pwrong way but 53 degrees from pwest chase, new tampa, plant pcity and even the tampa pinternational area, 53 degrees. psun city center. pas you go north, it does cool a plittle bit to 48-degree range paround inverness, 50 in pbushnell, 50 in crystal river, p52 in brooksville. pmid to upper 50s south of tampa palong the coastline and then olk county, in the low to mid p50s this morning. pif you compare this to yesterday pat this time, the rains are pcoming through, wow. pup 20 degrees cooler in brandon pthis morning. p20 degrees cooler in wesley pchapel. pthat will show you how warm pyesterday morning was. pour temps right now are close to pwhere they should be for this
pcrystal river, 22 degrees colder pthan yesterday morning at 6:42. pour winds ranging from seven to p21 miles per hour. pespecially along the coastline, pyou have the double digit winds pcoming in and out of the pnorthwest. povernight that did generate some pcool air clouds which filtered pin from time to time. pwhile many of us were enjoying pbeautiful, sunshiny start to the pday, you see cold air clouds phere in the gulf and a few of pthose will slide in as the day pmoves along. pno biggie. pwe'll get enough sunshine. pwe'll need the sunshine today pbecause colder air is pushing in pfrom the north, be dragged down pthrough the state so while the psun is warming us up, you have pdrier air aloft. pit's actually going to be a pdecent day. pthe colder air is trying to pknock our temperature down and pthat's why i think today we paverage it out to the mid 60s. pnow, reinforcing cool air comes pin tonight.
pto get back in the 40s for povernight lows. pso honestly, we're going punseasonably cool for the next pfew days and in fact, our ptemperatures don't get back to pnormal, mid 70s until the pbeginning of next week. pbut still, i mean, other than pthe overnight lows, temps aren't pgoing to be all that bad. pyou will be breezy today with 64 pdegrees for a high. pyes, jackets, tonight 40s for povernight lows and then ptomorrow, probably the coolest phigh temperature of the next pseven days. p62 for a high temperature. pbut we should have a lot of psunshine and a pretty day. pjust stand right in the sun and pit will be a few degrees warmer. pnorthwest winds, 15 to 20 knots. pboaters, not today. pwe've got high surf advisory, pyou've got the rip current pissues again. pthose will both subside tonight. plow tide at 9:22 this morning. phigh tide at 3:30 this pafternoon.
