7:03 am
pants and dog muggy is helping him out this morning because it is so very humid. our high temperature will be 93 degrees. be on the alert for pop up showers and thunderstorms and for those with health issues don't over getter yourself. we will listen to. that caitlin roth, the bell, that is not the liberty bell but they are hurling our arrival at independent mall. we're here. >> you are here, and all look so patriotic standing there wonderful, sue. thanks very much. we have a major accident of the morning. back to reality and back on the roads we will all head and we have a big issue on the pennsylvania turnpike westbound. off ramp to bensalem there is an overturned tractor trail their blocks right lane of the off ramp. we have video, sky fox over earlier and is there a big backup westbound as a result of this blockage on the the westbound exit to bensalem. traffic is getting by in the left side of the ramp but you'll see slow counts. also in philadelphia roosevelt boulevard southbound approaching c street.
7:04 am
we have a report of the accident there in the outer drive. mike and alex? >> thanks, caitlin. >> look at the big clock you heard it ringing there. >> yes. >> one minute past 7:00 o'clock. about an hour ago, what happened. >> revel closed down. >> yep. >> in atlantic city. >> it was weird too because we have done shots up, they have pack padlock the doors. that big beautiful glass building. >> so much money. >> 8,000 people without a job. so steve went back there, what are you seeing and feeling. >> is anybody even there, steve. >> it has been around 18 see owe degree and don guardian on his bicycle. he is one in the sunglasses, being mobbed by the media. i went up to him, i saw him, he does this daily bike ride. he doesn't look like his normal self in his bow tie and suits. i saw him and said are you as optimistic as these employees are that this place will
7:05 am
reopen. employees left their last shift thinking they will be back here real soon. he said you are a betting man in a bedding town when do you think this will reopen under new owners. he said this place will be back in business by memorial day. if you buy a beach house you will probably buy it in time for next summer. new owners will want to start in the best time of the year with the summertime crowds. look at this beach here to the left. it is a beautiful morning. that is what this place has thaw don't see in any other gambling towns. certainly not in philadelphia and not las vegas and any other states. have one proper practically that has gambling right now. i want to show so twitter pictures were it closed. lets start with my first image when i walked in the front door and there is a guy passed out like he is doing a swann dive on one of the lounge stools in the the lobby. you didn't really see that much in revel. they kept really good conduct medals going on in there of
7:06 am
all of the workers. that was one of the things people told us that turned them off. they were real strict about how everybody was acting in there. as soon ace get up in the casino floor, boy every table and slot machine was empty as far as i could look and you could see it looks like it was closed. it was still opened when i took this picture. then i found a guy cashing in his chips at the cashier's desk and he was the only one. three cashiers, one gambler, that is something you don't see in atlantic city casino. then happy picture when i was really surprised about and that was slot attendants getting together to get that team photo. they say they were last 17 of the original 65 hired. they called themselves cream of the crop. revel hired the best and they survived all of the cut backs. revel kept the best until the even. they came out and talked to me afterwards. they told me why they thought maybe this place didn't make it. >> i don't think they went through the the process and i think they have to go around
7:07 am
the with the other casinos. they have to bring the people in. they have to give the guest what is they want. they have to give customer service. they weren't doing that. they wanted the high limit people. there is not that many of them. you have to hope that the people that we turned away from the beginning come back and give us another shot. >> i'm hoping to come back and be with everybody and that is what i think will happen. i have a feeling that maybe within a week we will find out that somebody bought the place and they will let us necessity and we are not going to have to reapply. we are cream of the crop. they will bring us back and back. >> and way more optimistic then mayor, mayor says memorial day as early as next week and maybe a meeting in between. but here is some video i shot. they didn't want professional photographers or news media running around the casino floor. i was allowed in. i took this video with my cell phone. this is a massive gambling floor. you could see, for as far as
7:08 am
you could see when it comes to gambling. usually you cannot see crowd in front of you or cigarette smoke but nothing but machines and tables and emptiness, inside the revel about an hour and 15 minutes before it closed down. coming back live, you are familiar with velvet ropes. revel a had a popular club that was pack yesterday despite $40 cover charge. it went from the rel vet rope place to the place known as the cheap plastic yellow chains blocking the entrance ways right now v sad picture to close out revel's business. >> really is sad, and so what happens to that big beautiful building? i mean it just sits there empty. >> reporter: well, not completely empty. they have to keep some employees in there to keep it going and keep lights on. they will keep cashing in peoples chips until september 30th. people have have wings they can still come in here and cash in their chips but they will keep it manned with security and probably have an open house for any potential
7:09 am
buyers as well. they will keep lights on and keep some people in here but skeleton staff, kind of stuff you see when they evacuate these places for hurricanes. >> hopefully that won't happen. >> i bet a lot of people will be going to cash in and get their money. >> for september 30th. >> it is just so weird because just down the road is borgata and water club and it is pack, lines of cars stack up for 20 minutes to get into the place. in the far down the road is an empty place now closed. >> let's get back out to the great northeast, bad stuff going on last couple of days it is being targeted. we have dawn right there now and it is not the first time, right. >> no, vandals hit this neighborhood a couple times for last several years. take a look at what people woke up to. thinks one of ten cars that woke up with had their windshields smashed n total of ten on the 5200 block of f street. that car took a hit, a hammer
7:10 am
or chain and just wallupped. this is what happened in the early morning hours of labor day. so really in holiday for people who woke up and came outside to find their windshields cracked knowing they would have to pay to have it repaired. residents say that this neighborhood really is a popular target for some reason for vandals and they are simply fed up. >> when we least expect it, we come out in the morning and cars are destroyed. it is frustrate ago this some people just come and they destroyed our property. we're ready to move from this block. >> they had to hit it hard with a hammer or something a couple times to get it because you can tell it is real solid. >> reporter: one neighbor says that she saw someone around 2:30 in the morning on labor day, that looked like a chain or a hammer or something. rest tenth are hoping that the person that did this strike again. because this happened on a
7:11 am
holiday people really duck, in places opened to have their windshields replaced. when people come outside they have to find a place to repair it. they may have to miss work to get their windshields replaced. it will cost probably $400. a lot of people $5,600 key deductibles. so they will to have pay for this out of their pocket. it is inconvenient, frustrating and mike an alex, it is expensive. >> i remember last time that happened a year ago they found out one of their neighbors was vandal icing and putting holes in tires. >> it was a neighbor. >> yes. >> slashing tires. >> so somebody has got some surveillance figure and they will figure out who this is. thank you to are that. many news headlines around the world. >> we will head over to kerry in the studio. >> hi kerry. >> good morning, there is a lot going on in, fact a couple days after three teens were killed in the crash, some bucks county students are set to begin the new school year. grief counselors made a available at council rock high school south yesterday to try
7:12 am

7:13 am
it happened a at 11:00 o'clock last night all between the ages of 14 and 19 and apparently they found a week spot in a fence. we don't know if that was preplan. that story continues to develop. we will update you as we get new information. also at 7:30 doctors plan to bring comedian joan rivers out of the medically induced coma sometime later today. at that point they will assess the extent of the damage to her brain. the she's 81 years old and she went into cardiac arose during a medical procedure at a doctor's office has week. she had been on life support ever since. she remains in serious condition at mt. sinai hospital in new york city. i know it doesn't feel like it out there but it is the beginning of the fall, traditionally. first day of school for thousands in our area we caught up with a couple families in delaware county last night doing their last minute shopping. this morning we'd like to see

7:15 am
different like kissing your sister. >> it is a big deal. first time in phillies history they had a combined in hitter and important enough to get the front and back. four hitchers involved. we have joel hamels and jake diekman and ken giles. >> he is a fast one. >> he is a phenom. >> he can pitch 99 miles an hour. jonathan came into finish it off. it was weird though i was watching the game listening to my tweets and i ran to the tv and said i will watch the rest. then they pull cole hamels out in the middle of a no hitter. i bet he will be mad. he was laughing in the dug out. he said this. >> i understand. it wasn't really necessarily so caught up in the no hits. just the fact that i understood my pitch count, the walks, struggling every inning to be able to maintain and get a hid of hitters and i was kind of fighting and just not
7:16 am
a very comfortable thing to do. we are trying to win. we didn't have the lead as much as we would like during that time. >> thing is too it was really hot. it was hot in atlanta yesterday. hot atlanta. >> i get it, get it but for the fans this is probably a bright spot through the season. >> yes, something fun to talk about. >> that is true. >> in a bad, bad season. so we have our eagles coming up this sunday. i promised i would take you to the game. >> mom and dad going with us. >> let's do this. >> how am i going to get tickets. anybody going to get tickets. >> oh, yeah, is there that, like i'm so connected. >> but you know what at least by sunday it will start to feel more seasonal and little bit more like september but it is the the second day of the month and it is so humid out here. lets get to it and tell you what the temperatures are because now we have to think about getting kid ready for school and how to dress them. we have showed you bus stop
7:17 am
buddy and his polo shot on because i have to show you seven # six in philadelphia 75 a down in wildwood. the dew points, now you know we always say any to point above 60 is sticky. we have a 71-degree dew point in philadelphia. oppressive humidity with due points in the lower 70's and 60's, even up in the the pocono mountains, it feels like it is very stick which that 66 degrees dew point. so here we are with the seven day forecast, are you ready. 93 degrees today, but the possibility of some really strong pop up thunderstorms this evening especially, be on the alert for that. we were in the upper 80's but still close to 90 on thursday. hitting 90 on friday and saturday. stronger cold front on saturday means a much more comfortable day on sunday. high of 79 degrees by then. that will feel more like
7:18 am
football weather for sure. monday we're in the upper 70's as well. we had to wait until first week of september to get our summertime weather, it is here. we are here at independent mall. we have independence visitors center behind me. in the suburbs you don't get to the city much that should be your first stop when you want to be a tourist in your hometown, right miss caitlin. >> i need to do that too. i work a block away. thanks so much, sue. we are staying on top of the overturn tractor trailer accident on the pennsylvania turnpike westbound off ramp to bensalem. so this tractor trailer has the right lane block off off ramp. traffic is still moving by on the left side but causing residual backups on the westbound pennsylvania turnpike. if you can take a different road maybe trying to get around, that would be ideal but we are going to continue to stay on top of that as long as the tractor trailer is out there. also an update in philadelphia roosevelt boulevard southbound approaching c street, yes, incident occurred a little bit ago actually involving a
7:19 am
motorcycle in the outer drive so be careful if you are traveling in that area too, that is one big issue we will stay on top of here with the traffic authority. lets go back outside to alex and mike and mike hasn't even started sweating yet. >> no, i'm not sweating. >> you're doing good. >> i'm sweat free. >> you have do baby powder on. >> yes. >> smell me. >> no, no, that is okay. >> how were you ing abouting back to school. >> i was excited. >> i spent like the the first two weeks laying out my outfits in advance making sure i looked cute. >> of course. >> send in your pictures, hash tag fox 29, back to school. >> fox 29 back to will school. >> here is autumn going back to school. not sure where she goes to school but she has two thumbs up. >> she's excited. >> i had more of a sick feeling. i didn't wanting to back to school. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> i remember first day of school in my life was kindergarten all saints school, wichita kansas.

8:05 am
then i saw one person gambling. then i went over to the cashier's change. picture number three. guy cashing in his chips not knowing when could do so after 6:00 o'clock but revel is telling if we owe you money we will pay out until september 30th. after that you have to get to bankruptcy court to get your wings. finally the happy picture of the day this was a big surprise to me. as i made my way around slot machines i saw slot attendants, the last 17 on their last shift all together, all smiling, all happy taking that last group photo, a smile on every face because they are all convinced they came out and talk to me and told me afterward they are all convinced they will be back here working together again under a new name. >> i don't think they went for the the mega resort. they have to go along with the other casinos and they have to bring people in. they have to give the guest what is they want. they have on give customer service number one. they weren't doing that.
8:06 am
they wanted the high limit people and is there not many of them. you have to hope that the people that we turned off from the very beginning come back and give us another shot. >> i'm hoping to come back and be with everybody and that is what i think will happen. i have a feeling within a week we will find out that somebody bought the place and they will let us know and we will not even have to reapply. we are cream of the crop and they will bring us right back. >> reporter: well, their optimism shared by the the mayor but not as quick. he thinks they will be back in business and back reopened by memorial day. that is what he is told from people interested in buying this place. here is cell phone video i shot. they didn't let professional photographers in but i had cell phone going and it was big, empty and sadest thing of all billy squire playing on the loud speakers.
8:07 am
no center rock star then billy squire from those 80's hair band metal days and when you can hear music in the casino else that us how dead it is inside the casino. fitting a song out when i was last living here in the hey day of gambling when it was a growing town, now playing as it is on its way down and down to nine casinos and one more left. back to the live picture maybe happier knows and that makes revel stand out mike and alex from those casinos in philly and las vegas. we are on the world famous atlantic city boardwalk. right beyond that boardwalk there is that beautiful view beach and ocean out there all this fresh air. a beautiful sea breeze blowing. not a good hair day on the boardwalk but beautiful summer day to even our live shot here at 8:00 o'clock. >> always that dichotomy of things closing but then you have that beautiful view. that is why the hotel was there in the first place. it is just sad.
8:08 am
>> thanks, steve. anytime i'm out here, when i want to think on the negative, i think is this place safe because it is a target. >> that is true. >> even with the fact that it is first day of school, lot of parents taking their kids off for school for the first time you want to know their child is safe. >> here's what this weird survey we found and kerry will tell you bit, how many of the 50 states are really prepared for an emergency. a little bit alarming. >> twenty-five of them, about anyway. >> that is it. >> it is scary. here's the deal. is there a new report that find half of all states don't meet guidelines for emergency preparedness and emergencies can range from school shootings to natural disaster. so it covers a whole range of different situations. this report was dop by save the children and each state's vac waited on four categories. they are number one's vac ways
8:09 am
and relocation plans. two, reuniting children with their parents after a disaster. three, a special plan for children to have special needs. and four, multiple disaster plans for all schools, and you wonder how we rang here locally. we will break that down for you. pennsylvania scored unsatisfactoriry in one of the four categories. that category is the plan for children that have difficulties built. new jersey they did better they scored satisfactory in all four of the categories. the delaware scored unsatisfactory liz in one of the four as well but they did pennsylvania as a matter on have fact a plan for kids with disabilities. what is a amazing to me is as long as we have had these sorts of plans in place and they have been in place for quite a while now is the fact that two of the schools in the local area and half of the schools nationwide, really don't have their act together when it comes to handling emergencies. we have covered this kind of
8:10 am
thing in the news all the time whether it is a school shooting or earthquakes in california, just about a week ago, we have fires, we have all sorts of stuff and fact that we don't have something together that we can act on we we need to is scary especially as a parent. you send your kids to school thinking they have all this stuff covered and it turns out most of us don't. >> what is weird, my gosh, have you seen the headlines over the last ten days or so, isis is ready to strike the united states, my god i don't think we have had this much chatter on the internet since before 9/11. >> that is something we have not even talk about, and we have to have schools prepared for in the event if something like that happened, another terror attack what do we do then. >> all right. >> wake up call for sure. here's the the deal, it is back to school day. i bring up this safety issue. lets get a quick shot from camden. >> wilson family school. >> great school, great school.
8:11 am
>> and you are send nothing pictures is what the hash tag. >> hash tag fox 29 back to school. >> is that madison right there. >> she's going back to school. >> yes, so cute, i love outfits. >> good luck with getting back to school my goodness. >> look at everybody out here alex. >> the crowd is coming. >> yes. >> hi everybody. >> hi everybody. >> are you ready. >> are you ready guess who is here. >> are you going to see maz e runner are you. >> the stars are here. >> we have the stars here. >> hang right there they will be out in two minutes. hang right there
