i served under president bush and obama. i fought the taliban. i was asked to form a global coalition to counter isil. when someone makes the comment that they know more about the islamic state or isil than do the generals, it implies a complete ignorance of the reality. but i believe secretary clinton really understands the threat that the islamic state poses to the united states and to the american people. and i believe she understands how to wield american power
6:12 am

6:13 am
>>dave: majority of us clear skies, mild temperatures is just a few of us dealing with some low clouds and fog. but it's not thick. just want to let he know there will be a few patches here and there walking out the door. pasco county, hillsborough county, eastern hillsborough county and then up to orlando. visibilities down a little bit. don't walk out and go, oh, okay. i wasn't expecting that. it's 71 in st. petersburg. clearwater at 70. everybody else in the 60s. new tampa, plant city, apollo beach all in the mid 60s. west chase in the mid 60s.
6:14 am
north with clear skies, we get back in the 50s. inverness, crystal river, brooksville but those are the only few spots. bradenton, you're at 65. lakewood ranch at 63. 63 as well over in polk county, lakeland. it's just a beautiful little start to the day and it's going to be lovely. it's going to be warm. once again, the northeast wind continues. but this weather pattern going on around the country, for instance, you're talking about game six of the world series tonight in cleveland, november 1 their high temperatures today in the upper 70s so yeah. that's abnormally warm. it's not just those folks. it's really the eastern 2/3 of the country. eventually we're going to change that as a cold front comes into the area. that cold front will provide us about somewhat cooler weather for the weekend.
6:15 am
you've got high pressure in control, above-average temperatures by the weekend, say by friday, this front moves through the area. it does look like now that the front may provide the tiniest of showers as it comes through. again, not a big deal but i just wanted to point that out because yesterday it looked like it was going to come through dry. now on friday afternoon, you may get the tiniest of showers but not a big deal. mostly sunny, warm today, high around 86 60s. in fact, where you are right now for temperatures, expect pretty much the same thing for tomorrow morning at this time and then sunshine and warmth with 86 degree high temperatures for your wednesday afternoon. boaters, northeast winds at 15 knots. i've got a moderate chop set up for you with tide at 9:52 the low tide over the st. pete pier. next seven days, you'll see other than that tiniest of rain chance, we're going to go.
6:16 am
sunday morning, after you've turned your clocks back, you're going to wake up an hour earlier and looking at 58 degrees. so cooler and drier for the weekend. >>vanessa: love it. all right. thank you. 6:16 and good news is we don't have any new incidents to tell you about, but we do have an update to a crash i mentioned in the last report. two lanes are going to be blocked on southbound u.s. 19 at fox hollow drive following this crash here in pasco county. you can see now we're starting to build some delays heading that way s planning a couple of extra minutes and we'll watch that one and try to get more information fom the sheriff's office and whether there are any injuries reported. we'll get to majors right now. no big complaints here and looks like we are running up to speed. russell? >>russell: thanks. 6:16 right now. iraqi police force, special forces have pushed within a mile of mosul's eastern border. they stand poised to enter the second largest city in an offensive to drive out islamic state militants.
6:17 am
enough for civilians in mosul. militants are using disturbing new weapons, explosives hidden inside of children's teddy bears. examples of these bombs have been put on display at a training center for bomb disposal experts in iraq. sad reminder what they can expect to find on the road to mosul. >>laura: a new discovery could help solve the mystery surrounding amelia earhart. she vanished while attempting to become the first female pilot to fly around the world and for ca landed on a remote island and died as a castaway. now there's new evidence. bones were discovered on a remote pacific island in 1940 and doctors originally said they were male, ruling out the possibility they belonged to her. in 1998 fshths scientists proved the bones were female. now thanks to this photo, scientists are able to compare her forearms to the skeleton.
6:18 am
more piece of the puzzle. >>russell: that's fascinating. well, despite single handedly saving the world time and time again, james bond wouldn't make it as a modern british spy. real spies have to cope with complex, moral challenges saying bond lacks a strong ethical core. now, while younger praised bond's there are other things they look for, like team work and respect for the law. i'll take bond every day. >>laura: any day. honor flight is underway this morning and partially thanks to a very special boy.
6:19 am
amendment 1 protects consumers from scams, promotes safe solar, and is endorsed by florida's firefighters. so, why are out-of-state billionaires attacking it? because amendment 1 stops their subsidies. amendment 1 ensures that if you don't choose solar, you don't have to pay for those who do. amendment 1 blocks special subsidies for special interests. it's solar done right.
6:20 am
6:21 am
carson and i have seen some terrible ads attacking our mom dana young. for things she never did. it hurts because mom is cool. she is caring, she works hard. whenever something is not right mom is on it. trust us we know from experience. mom put her career on hold for us. to raise our family. she is a role model for everyone in our community. i'm proud of you mom, we both are. dana young for the florida senate. new this morning ... an honor flight is just getting underway >>laura: an honor flight is just now getting underway and these flights give veterans a chance to visit the capitol and see the monuments built in their honor. >>russell: ken found out about
6:22 am
all possible. >>reporter: dozens of vets are winging their way to washington, d.c. they'll visit monuments and going back in time, remembering some things that they did way back when in world war ii or korea or even in vietnam. it takes a lot of people to pull this off and a lot of money. we want to talk about one person in particular. not a 40-year-old or a 30-year-old or a 20-year-old. we're talking about a 9-year-old boy. he's not here right now but his mom is. this is linda landers. your son so vets could have this experience. how did he do that? how much did he raise? >> he started a community service project for school. the superhero fun run. he's raised over $40,000 in the last four years. we dress up as superheroes, we run around freedom lake park once a year and just have fun with it. he does the superhero fun run for the real heros. that's how he has labelled it. so -- >>reporter: how did he get this idea in the first place?
6:23 am
heart. he's always -- you know, there's no pushing. it's all drive. he's pulling me to go do things and he's like, you know, veterans come first. >>reporter: you're driving him around and coordinating some things so you have a commitment to the cause as well. >> absolutely. if somebody calls, i check allen's schedule first and get him where he needs to be but all joking aside, i'll do whatever he needs because our veterans do come first. idea in the first place? >> we don't know. he dresses up, we have a cloz he will full of costumes and one day he's batman, ironman, whatever he wants to be. that's what he is that day. he's just taken it and ran with it. >>reporter: how many vets can go on honor flight as a result of his efforts? >> 100. this year he passed over the 100 mark at $40,000. >>reporter: you're going up with earl, one of the 100.
6:24 am
what does it mean to you that a 9-year-old kid is doing this? >> he promised me four years ago he was going to send me and i'm going today. >>reporter: pretty psyched, huh? >> yes. >>reporter: so many people say the kids today are so rough and all on the wrong past. what do you think of this one? >> they need more of them like him. he's a terrific kid. >>reporter: i can tell you that it takes hundreds of people, 200 to 300 people to pull off one honor flight. costs but what a great investment. back to you guys. >>laura: nice story. all right. we're asking you all morning long to send in your halloween pictures. cabbage patch kid. all morning long, send them in with the hashtag, "good day" tb. we have a lot of cool pictures. post them to facebook, instagram with the hashtag and you might see yours.

6:31 am
according to authorities, tchls just before 6:00 in the evening when he was reported missing. according to the hillsborough county sheriff's office, morris took his 3-year-old son jet skiing but did not return from the ride. his wife reached out by cell phone and the child answered a request to face time. it was a good samaritan who found the boy west of i-75 known as island 75. a search of the island revealed an adult j the bank, adult life jacket and the missing man's wallet. but still no sign of him. so at this point, we can tell you we have reached out this morning to the hillsborough county sheriff's office and the spokesperson tells me at this point, there's no active search happening during the overnight, early morning hours. it's unclear what the plans might n as far as resuming that search as we make our way into daylight hours. we'll continue to follow the

available. back to you. >>laura: thank you. >>russell: new study using mice finds that the zika virus may harm the male reproductive system. mice infected with zika had sharply reduced sperm counts and fertility. it's not clear how the findings translate to humans. doctors need to take a closer look how the virus is affecting men infected with virus is already known to cause severe birth defects. >>laura: take a look at this. 340 foot tall radio tower at a water treatment plant came crashing down after a tractor hit one of the support cables. two trucks parked at the plant were crushed but no one injured. tower was used to remotely monitor sewer stations around the city. took two cities to reroute the tower's monitoring capabilities to another station. >>russell: bomb scare at the

6:40 am
florida, but much warmer weather back to the north and west and out to the rockies. in terms of rainfall, we see a change because it is likely going to be drier than normal and we've had a taste of that in october as we've had a pretty dry october overall. but we had such a wet spring and summer that it's kind of held the rainfall totals up overall for the year. so kind of deceiving that for the normal for the rainfall because the last month or so has been quite the option. we're at 55 in crystal river. 59 in brooksville. two spots in the 60s this morning and we have a couple of patches of fog from brandon to brooksville so in that area along 75, just heads up for that. doesn't seem to be a huge problem. you know why i know that? because vanessa would be yelling at me, and she's not. that's why i know it's not a big
