>> live from center city in philadelphia this is fox 29 news at 11. 11:00 o'clock and people in the city, the suburbs, down the shore are all cleaning up tonight and in this case here preparing for the next high tide. live look at radar right now. this is the issue. this nor'easter sparing no one. although the heaviest of the rain is moving on out, we are clearly not out of the woods y yet. heim lucy noland. this powerful storm brought down trees and knocked out power to thousands and sent the ocean waters flooding our shore points. we've got you covered though. our dave schratwiese schratwiesg the major problems for commute commuters. kathy orr is tracking when this may finally move out of here. we'll begin with o'connell getting sound blasted in avalon, new jersey. chris g job, you got the goggles on. >> you really have to, lucy.
a lot of people asking me why the goggles tonight. if you are in unprotected area like we are right now in townsend's inlet, we're just getting blasted with sand, bla blasted with white wash from the water. i clocked 54-mile an hour gusts the last hour coming off townsend's inlet right here. we were all over the jersey shore towns tonight. we were in atlantic city, we were in ocean city, here in avalon, stone harbor, much the same all over. we're getting reports wildwood, almost every street corner was flooded earlier tonight. especially in the low-lying areas. well luckily most of the rain has moved offshore lucy as you were saying but now we're contending with these winds. we understand they're going to be pounding us all night. again, especially in these unprotected areas. one of the things that happens when this kind of wind comes these nor'easters, beach erosi erosion. local municipalities throughout the night have been checking
beaches and they're going to get a handle tomorrow on how much erosion. but i can tell you by experience, any time a nor'easter comes this way, you're going to lose a couple feet of each of these beaches. depending on which one it is, tomorrow they're going to know. so once again, all night tonight these winds most of the rain has moved out. but if you are on some of these long the beaches very careful once again winds upwards of 50, 60 miles an hour gusts and that will most likely continue through the night. here townsend's inlet we're in the middle of the road here. that's because it's closed. the white wash here a couple cars have moved over who are but it's just crazy out here. as this storm continues. guys? >> you talk about keeping safe. you keep safe there chris o'connell you and the crew get back in that van. you know, meteorologist kathy orr i know that you were watch wagon chris o'connell is up against. he's clocking winds at 50 miles an hour getting sand blasted out there. >> just amazing report from chris this afternoon and tonight
down the shore. because that's obviously where most of this action is. so thanks so much to chris and his crew. you can see this persistent on shore flow. chris is in the thick of it so rain but the wind is the huge story and for the rest to have night, we're just talking about occasional rain drizzle and mist not such a big deal but the big deal is the wind gusts to 35 miles an hour overnight in the inland areas and then those winds slowly dying down but still gusting to at least 45 so it's that persistent flow and that wave action that's going to create possibly some devastation with beach erosion. the coastal flooding will continue overnight and tomorrow. we do have one more high tide to wait out. current wind gusts 44 miles an hour gusts in philadelphia out of the northeast because the storm is still to our south that's why we have that northeasterly wind. atlantic city gusting to 51. that's at the airport. that's 9 miles inland so chris seeing wind gusts over 50 miles an hour down the shore and wildwood and rio grand gusting to 43 miles an hour. temperatures are going to stay pretty persistent with that on
shore flow. 38 in philadelphia. 37 in allentown but we have wind to talk about and wind chills come tomorrow morning only be in the 20s. here's the center of the storm intensifying nor'easter. we put the stream line analysis on it so you can see how intense the storm is. it passes to our south and our east and on the back side of this, once the storm passes the wind shift to the north and then the northwest so a colder whipped for us tomorrow. future cast shows the rain slowly moving out but still rotating shrew in waves tomorr tomorrow. so for the morning rush may get caught in band of rain during the afternoon a few more bands really moving through you can see that western edge clearing out as the storm pushes through new england and then we dry it out for wednesday and that's when the sun returns. so overnight tonight, 38 in the city. they've in the suburbs. the wind still the major story with winds gusting to 35 inland at least 45 down the shore. tomorrow still gusty. even in philadelphia. winds gusting to 25. the temperature 42. on your seven day forecast,

♪ howie roseman got dead wrong with eric rowe and he just can't admit it. rowe was making plays for the patriots and now headed to the super bowl. eagles traded away rowe after just one season with the team and at the end of the year roseman said in press conferees he didn't think that, well, they would resign rowe. he wanted to get rid of him and get value back which really makes no sense because rowe's on rookie contract unsigned through 218. so there was no reason to get rid of that guy this early. the team just basically gave up on him. so today roseman gets on wip and backs off the contract talk a little bit and said the reason rowe was traded was because, well, he wasn't going to play. the coaches didn't have him high on the depth chart. how did that work out? rowe was clearly talent eagles could have used, so roseman wrong on both
fronts whether you're talking about contracts or on the depth chart. which is fine. no one perfect but howie, just admit you got it wrong once again. lucy. >> all right, thank you very much, sean bell. tonight saturday night live is sending very clear message barron trump is off limits. he's 10 years old. the late night comedy show indefinitely suspend one of its writers she targeted the president's youngest child. that writer katie rich tweeted what she was was a joke about the president's young son she deleted her post and apologized on twitter saying she deeply regretted the tweet. we now title of next star wars movie it is star wars episode eight the last jeddi. this picks up right after the final shot of the force awakens but if you're about to get in line at the movie theater you got to sit back down. star wars the last jeddi is scheduled for release on december 15th. are you big star wars fan. >> i'm sorry, i'm not.
