7:12 am
after encountering hurricane force winds and stormy sees. that will all depend on whether or not the more than 1100-foot ship gets the go ahead from the us coast guard. the ship's propulsion system was damaged during the storm and they won't green light it leaving the port in bayonne until its fixed. the passengers from on last week's cruz were refunded and 50 percent off the next cruz. it was a storm going on. people got sick. you saw the video, but can they legal action. attorney hanson shaking her head no. anybody can file over anything. this stuff happens. four people had minor injuries so i know you want them to sue. i do. i want them to sue. > why. >> i want them to sue if you can prove that the captain had knowledge of the fact that this storm was there and made a deeggs to take it on anyway. > listen, the cap and i is
7:13 am
ultimately responsible, especially in this situation and they have to make these decisions. from what i understand, they knew the storm was there but they did not know the extent of the storm and ships are built to go into storms. the thing you have to consider, too, so am people get angry when their cruzs are canceled. they've paid money for it. you have to weigh the possibility of a lawsuit if you cancel it. this captain saved a lot of people's lives. from what i understand he turned that ship around so it was no longer facing the winds. only four people had minor injuries. if anybody sued it would be for negligent infliction of emotional distress. >> i like that. > in quotes. negligence infliction of emotional distress. >> i thought they did well, they gave full refunds. > no one is thinking of going on another crews after getting off that ship, but it seemed to me they handled it appropriately. >> ultimately it's all about pr. they want to make sure that they

hi, mike anal ex. our new mayor gym kenny says that philadelphia schools are a priority. the position is called community schools director. what exactly does that mean? and what is a community school in how is the going to effect your kids and what makes it so different? help joining us to make sense of it all community school director susan. thank you for joining us. first obvious question is, what the heck is a community school? >> a community school is really a strategy for delivering services in a much more comprehensive and aligned way. schools are where the kids are. and one of the obstacles and barriers to learning is that kids have a lot of needs and the city is providing services so we are looking at delivering more city services and non-profit sector services to kids at the school with the school as the unit of delivery. basically the school will be much more than just a classroom for these students.
7:34 am
> that's right. kids have social and health needs. so some community schools and some other places like cincinnati have eye care facilities, food pantries, financial services for parents. > all in the school? >> all using the school as a event ser. it sounds like a shoprite. > we love shoprites. >> they have food and they have a pharmacy and they have a bang. > anyway, other cities -- would you call this a program that would be spread out over all of our schools? >> the goal is to really start looking at our schools in a much more strategic way. a really critical part of the community schools effort and the community schools strategy is getting the local community involved in what the schools' needs are. it won't look the same in every school. one school might say that their focus needs to be on having after school program. another one might say health services. so it's getting the community, that's parents, educators, students and community members
7:35 am
involved in deciding what the needs are and starting to think about how we use the city services that are already being delivered, getting them in there more comprehensively, reaching more people and supporting the l school system so that we can have the kateors can focus on the education. it's really thinking about the holistic needs of kids. how will you determine the specific need in each community will you be talking to the community, open meetings. >> meetings and planning services. they'll have people working with people to help evaluate what's already happening in the school that's currently available, as well as what the needs are. > you would cater to each individual school, cater to their particular needs. >> yes. > what other cities do this? >> there are a lot of cities that are looking at different models. chicago is looking at things. cincinnati has a good model. the mayor went there in the fall. > baltimore and new york. >> baltimore and new york, absolutely. > what are they saying about this? why are you attracted to it? because it's working in their cities?
7:36 am
>> one is again it's where the children are. being aible to meet the needs of children and actually help them become stronger, healthier, ready to learn, more well said. s that that benefits us all and it actually helps them with their school readiness and it helps educators to focus on education. > is there a plan to have every school in philadelphia have this. >> over time. the goal right now is 25 schools in the first four years. > let's get started. >> i got to go. > have we started, though, with a particular area. >> we're starting to talk to schools and identify which ones are working with school communities. the school district is looking at how they engaged their communities more. the city is really starting to look at assessing what's going on in the schoolsment we're starting to think about data systems and what kind of measurements we're going to be looking at. the goal is to identify a set of schools to role this out and then start adding schools over time. > you're a good talker, ma'am.
7:37 am
>> i am. thank you. > thank you so much. >> do you teach? i have not taught. my husband is a teacher. he is in the philadelphia school district. kirk bride, shout out. > keep us up on this progress. all the schools are going to come to you. >> i think we want everyone thinking about what their needs are and what they need to do to get in the queue. > get in the queue. is that out of line? >> no. > she did that right here. >> i know. that's our queue, to be quiet right now. > good job mike anal ex. it's hard to think about the boys of summer. it's the coldest day of the season, but it's almost time to talk about the phillies. the phillies packed up their truck and headed down to spring training in clearwater. what we can expect from our fighting fills this coming up season. >> take a look at this woman. she says her eyes -- let's get her up there. she says that her eyes are one of her most defining features because they make her look like

>> absecon. > absecon, new jersey. i'm glad you guys told me because one time i said something wrong and i got a million tweet about how to say things. you have to give me some credit. i had to learn skull kill, conshohocken. june yacht a. i saw your forecast. man, 16-degrees at 3:00 or something like that. that's just the temperature. you have to factor in the wind. we've been great before, but it's never really been this low. we're looking at pretty bad weather here tonight and tomorrow morning. because of the wind here, this wind chill actually fairly dangerous. you want to certainly take precautions. get everything covered up that you can with the hats, the gloves, the scarfs because it will feel like it's down blow deer on. frostbite can happen quickly if you're outside for a long period of time. keep that in mind. the artic air is moving in, teens and 20s now. the wind will really start to increase and the temperatures will drop. combine those two and you're
7:48 am
looking at wind chills down blow deer on. wind chill advisory, wind chill advisory for this reason. for tonight and tomorrow morning. that's when temperatures will be the lowest. carbon to mineral county 20 to 30 pro. here's where it drops down the most, right in the morning. it's about 10 to 15 blow. by noon, the numbers climbing just a little bit. the wind will start to die down a little bit. it will be a nice improvement as the wind dies down, but the cold artic air is still in place and will barely climb into the teens. the snow is another issue. a little coating. this is from pete. ease ' in new jersey and also we have andrew who sent in a little coating of snow. it's so cold and we'll see more snow showers. the roads could be pretty slippery at times. these are passing showers, but as the cold air really picks up this could start to increase and go over the same area, be more like a snow squall, not just a
7:49 am
