tv   Good Day Philadelphia at 6a  FOX  June 24, 2015 6:00am-7:01am EDT

6:00 am
today. june the 24th, and the 23rd will be remembered for quite a while, sue serio. >> so we want you to send us your storm damage, use the #fox29goodday. seeing some incredible things this morning. >> a lot of people talking about funnel. but we have to wait to figure out if we towelly did have a tornado. >> right. one report of funnel that never touched down, somebody saw, bob kelly and i in separate houses were watching scott williams last night both decided, you know what, we will go to the basement. tornado warning in chester county at one pointy think around 4:30 in the afternoon and -- >> the alert came across my phone. i saw that, and i look outside. and i said, you know what, i think we better go to the base many. the tough thing is trying to keep the kids calm, dad why with we going to the basement, why stopping dinner and going it the base (. >> why don't we do this little bit later in the program? i grew up in kansas, where you're supposed to go down in the basement. a lot of people did it for the very first time in their lives
6:01 am
until the delaware val. >> i good to know for the next time. >> hopefully won't be next time. let's get to the weather for today many look at today. a nine out of ten at least some decent weather for a lot of cleaning upgoing on. bus stop buddy get the lounge by the pool today. this time, he won't have to worry about the lightning 70s, your temperatures, some in the 60s this morning, we have 69 degrees here in philadelphia relative humidity, down to 70% with 6-mile per hour wind out of the northwest and the storms that we saw yesterday have now moved to our south. and we're clearing out the clouds, as we speak. so it was steamy yesterday before the storms, when we got to 95 degrees, and that gave us a official heatwave. the first one of 2015. we will see if the temperatures continue mostly in the 60s this morning 08 degrees though, by lunchtime. won't be as humid. 86 degrees, our high temperature this afternoon. so that's your wednesday forecast. some changes coming for the weekend, cooler changes we'll have that in your seven day just ahead.
6:02 am
so what are you starting with, bob kelly? i know you have a long list. >> 6:02, good morning everybody, taking live look at the schuylkill, you never know we had major storm roll through here yesterday. but, the major roadways, are open. it is your secondary roads your side street, the neighborhoods, where you are going to find some delays, detours, debris, downed trees downed wires with all of the folks without power, the power crews are out, there as well. so respect the closures, they are out there for a reason. big problems for mass transit commuters this morning patco service suspended through at least the morning rush hour. no trains on patco coming into or out of philadelphia this morning. here's the latest for septa's regional rails. service suspended on both the fox chase and media elwin line end to ends. paoli thorndale line service only running between malvern and center city. the rest of the regional rail lines running as scheduled probably, with some minor delays. the norristown high-speed line service suspended between norristown and radnor. your best bet for the buses
6:03 am
and trolleys, go to click on the system status button you'll be able to see the detour for your individual bus route, in the neighborhoods. atlantic city rail line, service suspended between philly and atlantic city. amtrak, they had suspended service last night trains are running again, probably with some delays, the keystone line though, that's the line that goes from philly out to harrisburg, the storm followed that september of tracks, so they're going to have 45 minute delays this morning philly international, a loft flights were either canceled or rerouted. so check with the airline before you head down to the airport, if that plane didn't come in last night obviously it won't be ready for take off this morning. traffic lights out hundreds of spots throughout our viewing area, like here, the boulevard, and oxford circle keep in mind when the lights are out, mike, alex, that means four-way stop all around the board. >> i think that's basically steve's story we will go through to right now. because, sue said yesterday the weather would be severe, man, that was exactly right.
6:04 am
>> steve? >> reporter: well, good luck with that four way stop. nobody remembers any of the hand signals they took on the drivers test. they only know the illegal hand signal to give everybody the middle finger, what we are seeing out here. there are so many near misses, i don't cringing every five seconds, every time i look at this traffic. this is just one of the many intersections, in is for sure the worse. chris, give them a look at the 42 traffic coming at us. traffic coming offer major highway where nobody goes just 55. so coming off a highway don't slow down because this is the first light they normally hit. but there is no light working on the black horse pike. the other way you can see everybody going toward philly, right at the foot of the a.c. expressway. the other problem here is we're right with the new jersey transit bus terminal here. so buses are coming out trying to cross all of these lanes at the same time. now, the police heard us jumping up and down here, stepped out little bit chris go to the right closed off one of the jug handles to prevent people having to take that life risk cross street move. but the problem with that is
6:05 am
people slow down there you won't believe what's going on, at the can't get in the jug handle. they stop in the right lane. then they cross all the lanes over to the left, and make illegal u-turn here. so, it is even worse than having the jughandle open still if that's possible. it is incredibly crazy mike, alec, i don't know where to begin with all of the issues we're facing, bob talked about patco being down, a lot of the people normally drive to the closest patco station off 295 which is woodcrest well, that will add all of these cars, 38,000 daily riders, into philadelphia. so all of the parking spots will be full. maybe your spot that you normally have isn't going to be there in a garage. none of the gas stations are working here on the black horse pike, which is probably 50 of them. so, a lot of people may be running out of gas today. so people take my advisement don't price shop today for the lowest apply. see open gas station, down to like half tank or quarter tank fill up. because the power may not be back on until at least tomorrow. so here's one of the problems we're seeing with these new jersey transit buses.
6:06 am
mike, one traffic, one gas station was open here, and we're told it was a half mile long. it was something only you and i would remember long before alex was born, the gas crisis of 73 and 79, so you are seeing gas lines as well. it is incredible. the aftermath of the storm seems even worse than the actual storm damage we saw and i'm telling you if we keep live camera out here, you will see the dangers. this person stopping in the left lane here, like they want to make one of these u turns i am talking about. yes, and then there is people in the left lane which is normally a fast lane and now they are stopped at a left lane where people normally go on a highway. well, they are letting this bus get across, but everybody's passing around people when somebody does stop and wait. so that person was nice. but, it is bad out here. so it will get even worse only 6:00. can you imagine the height of the morning rush? all of us today will need like throat lose inning ers after today. >> we'll keep coming to you all morning thank you for. that will 6:06. >> screws out inspecting billy
6:07 am
penn statue on top of billy head. >> he got hit in the head last night by lightning strong bolt of lightning. look at that. you know, we on air last night when that happened. yes, a loft our viewers tweeted us, asking if it is okay, his head, his hat. we reached out to the mayor's office, they say they're not aware of any damage yet. but they'll crawl up into that hat later on today to inspect billy penn's head. >> amazing video. last night's storms did some unexpected damage at the depford mall. the same problems from yesterday's weather including sheet metal ripped from part of the building. several cars got banked up in the mall's parking lot, one was flipped over by the high winds. one man says he was working when the thunderstorms rolled in, got bad feeling as he went outside. >> people are freaking out next i know, i hear cars flipped over, in the parking lot, i asked what direct, they point to the back. i park my car in the back. i look out the window. i see my tires.
6:08 am
i freaked out. ran out the back door. >> mall officials say they evacuated the upper floors, and get people away from glass sealing areas, which prevented anyone from getting hurt. despite the damage the mall will be back open today during normal hours. >> okay being man, getting a loft pictures, especially from last night and this morning damage in your area. look at this. that's a swimming pool. >> wow. >> yes, there is now a tree. do you have get some leaves out of the pool now. sends us your pictures, instagram, twitter use the #fox29goodday. coming right back.
6:09 am
6:10 am
6:11 am
judge. >> this is glen mills. look at that, those cars aren't going anywhere for awhile. >> mayor's office offering two, $10,000 rewards for any information lead to go airiness two shooting cases. >> the first happened over the westbound edge, as you know, on augden street. someone opened fire with a shotgun at a cook out hurting ten people, you have ten people got hit. then two days later another shooting there is one along east hilton street. where seven people were shot. that makes 17 victims total in three days. >> okay, did you see the video yesterday afternoon? the video showing the moment dylann roof was arrested? well, he is accused as you know of killing nine people at a south carolina church.
6:12 am
there he is. so we'll hear the 911 call before they pulled him over. here's bob. >> headaches everybody, good morning, here is a example of one of many intersections where the traffic lights are out. philly police directing folks into and out of 26th and penrose, which is right at the base of the platt bridge. we'll run down all of the mass transit issues, and is the sun here to stay? sue has the answer when we come right back.
6:13 am
dear stranger, when i booked this trip, my friends said i was crazy. why would i stay in someone else's house? but this morning a city i've never been to felt like one i already knew. i just wanted to thank you for sharing your world with me. it felt like home. airbnb. belong anywhere.
6:14 am
new jersey's supreme court has spoken but teachers and school employees still fear for their futures. because rather than solving the pension crisis the court says politicians can continue to ignore it. that's just wrong. teachers and school employees have paid billions into their pensions. but the state has failed. the legislature can fix what governor christie has broken - ... before it ends up costing billions more. it's time for fiscal responsibility. fund the pensions now.
6:15 am
>> we're getting a lot of pictures of damage. this one from gloucester county, look at that, blocking the road there. sends us your pictures on instagram, twitter use the #fox29goodday. we can expect to see a lot of pictures like this? >> right. picture little earlier what look like lightning striking through a tree. and that probably happened a lot, throughout the area, and it is, i guess coincidentally, lightning safety week. we are getting into the busy thunderstorm season. so we learned yesterday, that the fear of lightning is astro phobia. and lightning can strike twice ; empire state building gets hit by lightning about 100 time per year. the odds of your getting lit by lightning, one in 12,000. so, it is lightning awareness week. we are certainly aware that far lightning yesterday. in lower providence township,
6:16 am
as we look at some of the storm reports from yesterday reports of lightning taking down somebody's chimney we had plenty of storm reports all throughout the area, and in particular, funnel clouds. look at all of these different funnel cloud sitings reported to the national weather service, jenkintown, west berlin, new jersey, in philadelphia, in chester township, and even in blue bell, out there in chester county. but that's also where they had the tornado warning up yesterday afternoon we had wind gusts recorded at philadelphia international airport of p 1 miles an hour, that's almost hurricane force. we had another one same strength, in norwood, delaware county, elmer, new jersey, so here's where we are right now. it is gone. the cold front is out of here. it moved down to the outer banks of north carolina, and it is starting to leave there and just move out to sea. so, that's it for that. now, we look at the future cast. we see some rain moving in, not until evening tomorrow. so we're fine the rest of the day today. and the early part of tomorrow. it is probably not until
6:17 am
6:00 or 7:00 that we start to see few showers around from a system that's going to stall. we will be on the northern side of the stalled system. that's why we're expecting cooler temperatures over the weekend, but for tomorrow night, we could have some thunderstorms rolling through to the south of philadelphia, friday morning we're going to margate, and we will probably just see few left over showers, by then, i don't think we'll see the heavy rain for friday morning we hope to see you there as well, right by lucy the elephant. friday afternoon, maybe couple of more showers it just, transitioning after today, into an unsettled weather pattern for the weekend. temperatures in the comfortable 60s just about everywhere this morning as that cooler i drier air moves n we take away humidity, 6-mile per hour breeze out of the northwest. so, it will be pretty nice today. but we did have our first official heatwave of 2015 sunday monday, tuesday.
6:18 am
over the weekend 72 degrees on saturday, with couple of showers possible, and sunday we may fire up thunderstorm or two, unsettled weather pattern, all the more tone joy with the low humidity, sunshine, a the love people will be using the good weather, bob kelly to clean up. >> definitely, definitely nice day out there as far as clean up wise goes. 6:18. good morning everybody live look at the schuylkill expressway. where once you hit the major roadways you're okay. no problems at all on the schuylkill i95 actually dealing with some sun glare here, traffic lights out the spot, where steve reported from right here along 42 at the block horse pike, one of the hundreds of spots around the area here where again the powers are out, with the power out the traffic lights are out as well. downed tree along the ramps from route 55 to route 47. light out power crews working along route 70 at springdale road. traffic getting through but
6:19 am
obviously a lot slower than normalment same deal route 73 the ramps to route 130. again, here is the run down for patco. no service this morning on the patco high-speed line. so all of the folks who would typically park at all of the stations obviously getting an alternate, maybe either getting a ride, using their own vehicle or maybe just calling it using a personal day going to work from home. fox chase regional rail line, media elwin line, so service suspended here. however paoli line, service running from malvern into center city. norristown, into radnor, your best bet with all of the downed trees and wires in the neighborhoods, check, system status, click on bus route good to go if there is detour in the neighborhood. new jersey transit cross honoring system-wide and rail line suspended philly down to atlantic city being amtrak, i know mike, alex, you used the train yesterday.
6:20 am

6:43 am
yesterday, we had whipped as high as 75 miles an hour, peak wind gust in medford, new jersey that's hurricane force just under hurricane force in philadelphia, at philadelphia international airport suspended everything at the airport, for awhile there. nobody went anywhere. just several of the many places that reported very high wind gusts and damaging wind gusts yesterday. to the clouds to the south every us there is the cold front, it is still causing some thunderstorms, on the outer banks of the north carolina, and next system out here in the midwest. and folks around illinois, and indianna, once again specking some severe wet they are afternoon, we are not, at least not this afternoon. talking thursday morning fine it is late evening that we probably will get some rain moving n some of it could get pretty heavy thursday night
6:44 am
but of course, we're focused on friday morning, in margate because that's our shore town this week, and and i think things will be tapering off by then, we should just have maybe a couple of showers couple of clouds, we do hope to see you on friday morning. friday afternoon, could be a little wet as well. the word is unsettled as we head into the weekend. but for right now it is beautiful out there. and comfortable again much cooler than yesterday. sixty-three reading, it is close to 70 in philadelphia, it is 70 in wildwood, 64 degrees in wilmington, delaware. winds are now coming out of the north and the northwest. so that makes the big difference in the humidity decent hair day. first official heatwave of 2015. it won't be the last, i suspect, but we don't have the hot weather in our forecast, in fact, look at the first full weekends of summer with temperatures in the 70s. that's high temperatures in the 70s both saturday, and
