8:33 am
demanding cash as much as 150 bucks to help residents fill out fema claims. state and local officials want to remind everyone don't giver out that personal information. and don't give out money without verifying another dent tee of the person who is asking for it. government officials carry official identification as do insurance company representatives. if they don't have that folks, don't give them your money. don't give them personal information. that's another big thing here. they are asking security number. a lot of people giving that away without knowing for sure who they are speaking with. big no no. that's why again the pasco county sheriff's office wael local law enforcement and state law enforcement reminding folks to make sure the person you are speaking with is either with your insurance company or with fema. do not become a victim. because there are plenty of people out there trying to take advantage of you. just think about it paying $150 to fill out a fema claim that is
8:34 am
for. just something you fill out and you send over. but again these folks out here in pasco county, still having to deal with flood waters look like this resident here she's walking over to her house right now. and you know, you got to feel for her and rest of folks that are living in this neighborhood. it's been almost a week. yet streets here still flooded. and this poor woman having to cross that dirty water because i can tell you russell, that water is dirty. and it stels mad. feeling for her right now. back. hard to see. all right, alcides, thank you. 8:34. and during the storm nearly 700 kids and more than 200 seniors a safe place to thanks to tampa parks and rec. after school, rec centers announced they will opening theirs with almost 1,000 people taking advantage it was definitely a necessity. new this morning an if you

8:36 am
>> yeah. no need to go to sin city. it is gorgeousness. sirata beach cam tra too. a chance to dry things out what we've had over the past few days. i know obviously getting hot again because the lack of rain chances. but still so much water on some of the sides of these roads and in the gullies and this and that. that, i mean obviously the standing water still an issue. i'm hoping with rain chances being low the next couple of days that will takes care still in tampa. 78 in st. petersburg. double 7s in sarasota. punta gorda with temperature of 75 degrees. tropical moisture has been pushed a little bit further to the south. so you go to the scale. and brown ask yellow that's drier air aloft. that drier air settled in yesterday. and just kind of ate up. the rain chances, its going to do the same thing again today. now slowly over th course of next two or three days we will
8:37 am
should return normal. normal being around 40 percent for this time of year next couple of days, we keep these rain chances at around 20 percent. you notice future cast, kind of pushes everything further south. tampa runs with a 20 percent rain chance. yet fort myers is around 50 percent. with their extra moisture in the atmosphere. so if you live in between you're somewhere between 20 and 50 percent. but closer to 30 around sarasota or so. now tomorrow we'll get a couple more storms here and there. by the weekend, more in line with what we should be getting for september. that 40 percent rain chance. that means 92 degrees again today. under partly cloudy skies tonigt. our temperatures drop back to 75 degrees. and then for tomorrow we are back to 92 with scattered clouds and an isolated afternoon storm. boaters another great day. boy, that last week was just brutal for you. now we're making up for it. light to moderate chop. seas running a couple feet. low tide just before 1 o'clock this afternoon.
8:38 am
percent rain chances. we will then turn to 40 percent and pretty normal set up for you saturday, sunday, monday and tuesday. because of all bad weather, last week, we had to suspend our giving mugs away. but we're reinstating it today. and we're starting it off with this absolutely gorgeous picture of rainbow springs river from richard grimesly. have you even been up there? the water is so crystal clear around citrus county north. and this, that whole that fresh water the water's chilly but just beautiful. and fox 13 good day mug for you my friend. for sending that picture in to us get pictures in go to my facebook page fox 13's dave osterberg click on #we live here. great picture i feel like i could see bottom of river so clear and so beautiful. that's nice. i love it. enjoy that mug. all right 8:38. right now debris reported in the road out of tampa. armenia at sligh.
8:39 am
blocked. apparently street song that downed by a disabled vehicle in area. not big blockage. of course use caution in the area. also use caution here fowler 275. city crews are en route to the this to fix it. meantime remember, of course you're going to proceed through intersection with caution. flashing lights indicate four-way stop. and then, expect some delay as traffic pattern is disrupted a little bit. here's another emergency road work to talk about. and this is ongoing. so this is just a connu out of sarasota. state road 72 remains closed. east of myakka park to west seidel road looks like we have six more days left of work out here. is due to hole that formed in the roadway. 20 minutes away from the top of hour now. majority of us struggle every day to makes ends meet we're always looking for ways to save. there's no doubt we've heard next five things about saving. and probably believe them.
8:40 am
myths. so let's just go through them. first you need to have huge emergency fund. that's false. financial planner typically recommend clients have enough saving to cover three to 6 months of expenses. but for those living paycheck to paycheck, that could take years. so experts suggest you keep 500 bucks on hand. next getting married means higher tax bracket. also that's not true. third myth, roth ira's great way to save for retirement. that only true if you are in a higher tax bracket. really are not going to do much for you at all. next they say you should roll your 401k into an ira when you leave your job. you maybe better off leaving it where it is oh transferring to your new job's 401k program instead and then last one scholarships help reduce the cost of college. nope. they will only reduce the amount of financial aid a student can be offered. basically putting them in same position they would have been without the scholarship.
8:41 am

8:44 am
((jen stud b)) it is a tough topic. suicide. and this month is suicide prevention month. time to shed light on something silent killer. there is a one death by suicide every 13 minutes here in the u.s. and it's something many people are afraid to talk about. but it's time to do this this more than we have claire reynolds from crisis center of tampa bay to talk about the prevention and an event you have coming up. good morning, thanks for being here. thank you so much for the opportunity to be here today. i know it's just an uncomfortable topic people don't want to talk about it but we need to the standards are really
8:45 am
suicide is truly a public health crisis. we talked about zika. it has been the news all the time. but we forget that suicide is second leading cause of death for individuals between the ages of 13 to 34. so fourth leading cause of death for 35 to 64. so it is a significant public health crisis that we have in this country. and we don't talk about it. so this is a wonderful opportunity to be able to do so. >> and this is, good to get the conversation going. absolutely. what can, what can people do, what can they watch out absolutely. so, suicide is completely preventible. one only health crisis that we have that is completely preventible. so was we recommend is if you find your friends your family your neighbors are disconnecting from you, maybe they are talking about wanting to take their life. maybe they are wanting to talk about leaving things like that. this is great opportunity to do things. connect to that individual. communicate with them. show them that you care. if you feel like that that
