tv   Fox 29 Morning News at 5a  FOX  December 9, 2014 5:00am-6:01am EST

5:00 am
it is 5:00 o'clock and it is nasty out there. if you have a flight to catch, check with your airline. this nor'easter is not letting up just yet but sue serio is tracking it to let you know what specifically you can expect in your area. >> creating wind sheer there. >> ivy league school let something student postpone their finals. why the school is standing by their decision made after deaths of two unarmed black men, one in new york and another in ferguson, missouri good if you are not a go getter when it comes tour job, it is not your fault, why a new study is blaming your boss
5:01 am
it is not your favorite character but like that it went all downhill from there, what else this little girl had to say to the beauty and beast star coming up in the trend. >> she does in the care for him. good day, it is tuesday, december 9th, 2014. we are very glad to have you on this wet cold tuesday morning. >> driving into work sue serio a lot of puddling. >> yes, be our guest and wear our rain gear. >> be our guest. >> okay. >> somebody got it. here's a look at our weather by the numbers. you knew it wasn't high but it is two out of ten. lets get to our issues this morning, flooding being one with rain moving through a coastal flood warning. high tides time is between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. for ocean and the delaware bay as well, so that is when it could be worse with that back bay flooding at the shore, flood watch for all bodies of water in the metro area throughout
5:02 am
the day to take with several inches of rain in the forecast and then moving north and west we have winter weather advisory for counties in purple. until about seven or maybe 10:00 a.m. depending where you are because of the mixing of snow and sleet with the rain. it looks like winter storm warnings still in effect for carbon and monroe throughout the day for accumulating snow, wind is a big problem for everybody but worst at the shore, 25 to 35 miles an her wind sustained and gusts in the 40's throughout the day. here is your ultimate doppler radar it appears that the nor'easter is upon us and frozen precipitation north and west of the city, rain falling here in philadelphia, chester county we did see some pink mixed in with green and that is frozen precipitation. probably most dicey around easton, allentown and places north of i78 up there and rain just continues to pound the shore, lots of flooding, as bob reminded you earlier,
5:03 am
turnaround don't drawn if you see a flooded roadway. don't try to go through it. 38 degrees is our current temperatures. wind gusting to 20 miles an hour here in the city. much higher in the shore. we will show thaw in a little bit. high wind. wind north at 15 to 20 gusting to 30 miles an hour w that high of 42 degrees at least here in the city we will be dealing with rain and only rain, different story north and west and we will talk about that coming up, so bob, wet roadways and already a lot of problems this morning. >> i say folks get that false sense of security and not only do we have heavy rain with wipers on full force but that rain is ponding on the road surface can't make it in the drains quickly enough and in areas like i-95 where the drain was clogged we had a one car spin out. as we go south on i-95, two left lanes are blocked, penndot on the scene here cleaning the drain out but half an hour too late because we had a crash that probably
5:04 am
was caused by that big puddle here on i-95, so that is an example as we are's getting ready to step out all roads are wide opened. we don't that have bumper to bumper 30 miles an hour traffic. folks are moving quickly on i-95, schuylkill and blue route and you'll be the one to hit that puddle first. burlington bristol bridge on stand by for an opening we had one earlier at that coney palmyra, heading out the front door and head right for tacony palmyra to play it safe. abington washington lane is block and one car crash, that took down telephone lines. peco is on the scene there. the dividing line where we go from just rain and wet roads to the wintry mix is right here, the pennsy turnpike at allentown interchange. we had an earlier morning tractor trailer accident. police reported zoo ice. that is that line where things get icy dicey moving north toward the pocono area.
5:05 am
crash one car spin out inner drive on the boulevard at harbison, again an example where we have had so far the accidents this morning have been one car spin outs, not only in the neighborhoods but also on the major roadways. some high what the's long route 47, that is block at high street. flooding on 322 at mays landing. if you are watching us down the shore you're watching that time line for high tides that could bring flooding on the back roads, like 47 through wildwood and flooding in sea isle last night. all major roadways expect to be slower than normal this morning. factor in that extra time and more importantly that little extra wiggle room. outside on the roadways all morning long fox 29 jennifer joyce has been driving shut gun checking out roadways. where are you right now and tell us what the roads are like. >> reporter: we are driving through downtown doylestown right now, i'll show you, right now, we're seeing a lot
5:06 am
of rain, rain, rain, no real problems. i know sue was talking about that pounding rain at the shore, that is not the the case up in this area light rain falling right new but all morning long, the the route that we took to get up here was i-95, and that was really slick. we can see our car rocking and slipping there, but because of the uponning on the roadways. taking a live look town along main street in doylestown you can see there are puddles on the side of the road as rain continues to fall but we are hearing obviously that it is going to be picking up as the morning goes on, so if you are at home getting ready for the workday still it is always a good idea to allow for some extra time out here because you never know what you will encounter. bob was talking about a number of accidents and incidents on the road way. so we will send it back to you
5:07 am
guys. >> yeah, be safe out there be thankful thaw are inside a nice, warm car because steve keeley not so lucky. >> we will catch up with him in a couple minutes. >> right now. >> as a matter of fact couple second at the shore, rain and wind today. >> let get right to him. >> reporter: you guys know i'm not a whimpy umbrella guys i'm just using this as a prop. this is sideways umbrella, listen to the sound, it is sounding like drums here. very heavy rain and windy. we talk about accumulation only in snow but we have accumulating rain here. we're on the main drag ocean drive as it is called up and down the coastline here but landis avenue through sea isle. you can see some headlight. this is what bob kelly was talking b you cannot sea water and how deep it is in the dark. before the sun comes up you could hit 6 inches of water before you know it. heard him talking about one car accident. it only takes 6 inches for a
5:08 am
car to get out of control and 12 inches of water will pick up a car, 2 feet of water which we are seeing at the shore can carry away a big sur and pickup truck. good thing we are here with our heavy camera lights and that gave this guy a warning to stop very intelligently like sue serio says turnaround and don't drawn and this guy got word to light here on top of the water but a lot of interest sections we are at forty-fifth street and right off the road that has sea isle bridge. there is smart move of the day not a knuckle head bob kelly talk about driving through this stuff. that is an suv. intelligent driver there. that is the problem here when you see a flooded intersection there is no where to go. we are midway between ocean and bay. we looked on the bay side and it was very flooded back there but we wanted to give you main drag so i can show you flooding here at well. the wind, signs are blowing around. this isn't even the worst of
5:09 am
it. we are in front of the the dock's pancake house. kerry, chris, if we didn't call the show "good day philadelphia" between seven and ten how about a great morning show, dock mike jerrick. >> i'm on board. >> good to see you your umbrella. >> yes. >> okay. >> yah, i got a hat on a wanted to use this for demo purposes and greg like don't do what you normally do and turn it the other way because umbrella is going to blow away like. but that is how windy it is. look at that driver went around flooded intersection going the other way. there is another flood intersection going up. that guy will take a longer way. leave extra time, you need extra time because you can do detours like that by just did. >> thanks, steve. >> 5:10. breaking news out of west oak lane a fire fighter taken to the hospital after battling a
5:10 am
basement fire at home in the 1600 block of middleton street. it broke out around 3:00 under control in 30 minutes. police looking for a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in west philadelphia. it happened near forty-seventh and chestnut street around 8:30. police released few other details and a only have a generic description of the man they are looking for. investigators are returning to maryland to try to figure out what caused a small plane to crash in the home. six people were killed including a mother and two young sons. authority identified her asthma regamel from brick township, new jersey. she went to rowan university. police say they found her huddled over her kids in an upstairs bathroom. three people on the plane were killed as well. >> columbia law school allowing an unexpect exception for students who postponed exams if they felt traumatized by eric garner or michael brown grand jury decisions
5:11 am
they can take their test later. normally schools allow exams to be postpone in case of illness or family member's debtor for religious observance but officials say this is an unusual time, diverse student body, many students taken part in these protests and is there concern that the cases might be a distraction. in addition to allowing students to postponed exams, columbia has arranged for a trauma specialist to meet with students on campus if needed. >> happening today a report detailing harsh interrogation tactics from the cia are released. american embassies and military units are bracing for threats in response to it. that report covers the cia's use of torture following 9/# one terror attacks. this is first public account of those tactics and many u.s. officials that are familiar with the report say the document alleged that harsh interrogations failed to produce useful intelligence. alcohol in the past has been linked to cancer but

5:14 am
well, we can just show you the big mess here on ultimate doppler radar, this is just as predict a big old mess and a different varieties with frozen precipitation mixed in but it is far north ape west of the city. even if you are getting a break from the rain right now
5:15 am
and it looks like new castle county, parts of delco are getting that break, it is coming back throughout the day because we have a wrap around moisture we always talk about. in abington there is heavy rain, limerick looks like it is raining heavily but up towards allentown we might have some snow and or sleet mixed in making for very tricky travel along i78, down here at the the jersey shore, still, pockets of heavy rain all over the place and as we saw, wind are high as well, lancaster, county, berks county all getting that pink mixed with the rain. that indicates possibility of sleet with the rain mixed in this morning. travel is a mess, this continues throughout the rest of the morning as we look at future cast and more heavy rain coming back by middle of the day. by 10:00 o'clock we have possibility of more heavy rain according to this particular computer model. we will jump to 5:00 o'clock we can still see rain but at leads it is only rain. colder air moves in tonight
5:16 am
and we could see a brief per of wet snow even here in the city but i don't think it will lath and it will in the accumulate and thinks one version of what will happen. by thursday morning a couple of left over flurries and then rest of that should be out of here. that is a quick look throughout the future. four to 6 inches of accumulation possible in the higher elevations in the mountains but it is only 30 degrees there we are at 38 in the city, 40's south and west and these wind 14 miles an hour sustained in philadelphia, they are gusting as high as 30 miles an hour. we have a 36 miles an hour win gust recorded in wilmington, delaware. seven day forecast has a lot to look forward to namely the weekend. so sunshine doesn't return until friday possibly but then it looks dry and great for your holiday-type plans for the upcoming weekend, bob. >> hey sue, 5:16. good tuesday morning. flooding on i-95 penndot just cleaned out the drain here

5:45 am
will have flood watches and warnings in effect for this morning. it is all because of this nor'easter low pressure system bringing wind out of the north east and bringing a lot of moisture off the ocean and this is the result as we look at the future cast throughout the day-to-day on and off period of heavy rain from the main storm and then wrap around moisture from the storm. then tonight as it brings in more cold air out of the north with the circulation around this storm we could see a brief period overnight. even in the city, snow and through the morning. jury is still out but wanted to be a aware of the possibility, it will not accumulate but tomorrow's morning rush we could see a few snow flakes flying around, again, chance is there, computer models not quite agreeing on all that just yet but by friday we are back to dry weather. we have to get through this mess this morning. here in allentown this area of white showing upright along i78 south of allentown and that could be wet snow mixing
5:46 am
with your rain. here's mess at the shore, just has in the let up all morning as steve keeley told you sideways rain because of the win coming in off the ocean and all that heavy rain. owe we are home at 30 degrees in mount pocono, below freezing. that makes for a frozen mess. right around freezing in reading and lancaster. we could have dicey tricky travel in those places. allentown itself at the airport, recording 34 degrees but just a little bit above freezing. we could have icy travel there we're well above freezing only dealing with rain in philadelphia and points south and east, 42 degrees in atlantic city. we have wind 21 miles an hour sustain wind out there. that will blow your umbrella inside out. 15 miles an hour the atlantic city, 23 in wildwood. these are wind gusts which are higher. we have 34 miles an hour win gust recorded in philadelphia, 39 miles an hour gust in wilmington. that is tropical storm force. 39 miles an hour.
5:47 am
