12:04 am
saturated and sensitive to any additional amount of rainfall. only a half inch of rain in one hour that could trigger that new flash flooding or we could see one inch of rain in three to six hours and get that same result the forecast right now is calling for one to three inches of rain in some of the hardest hit storms across eastern pennsylvania into new england. we could be talking about the potential for that heavy rainfall and as i mentioned, straight line winds as far south as raleigh, as far north as new england. isolated tornadoes will be a risk as well and this could continue into parts of our thursday >> and late today, we got word there's another tropical system. this time targeting the florida pan handle >> yes tropical storm mindy bringing heavy rainfall to the florida panh panhandle. we'll need to watch out for flash flooding in these parts of the country as well. >> thanks. so >> louisiana's insurance commissioner ordering insurers

12:09 am
of a federal government mandate. something the white house has said they don't have the power to do. but white house press secretary jen psaki told me today, likely there will be more mandates like what we've seen at the agency level and for government workers. there will be a renewed call on the private sector to require more employees to get vaccinated on another major topic, of course, back to the classroom this fall, we expect the president to be talking about what can be done at the federal level to help kids in classrooms since they can't get the vaccination shots, given their age. one potential area the federal government may try to recommend or provide more funding for would be in the area of testing. and finally, we do expect the president to talk a little more about their larger strategy when it comes to boosters and it comes right after the head of the world health organization essentially called for a moratorium on these extra shots until the end of the year.
12:10 am
something the white house really says the s a false choice. they believe they can do two things at once in some ways, the federal government is loimtd what they can do they'll be calling on a lot of local leaders to do more as we see these cases, hospitalizations and tragically, deaths continue to climb >> maumpg, thanks. the new school year started off in most parts of the country and already, hundreds of thousands of children are testing positive for covid. >> the mid-term academy of pediatrics reports more than 250,000 infections in children just last being. that's the largest number of child cases since this pall began. the rate of cases has skyrocketed over the last two months more than six times higher than it was at the beginning of july. that from the cdc. this is affecting schools all across the nation. one of the heart evidence hit states is kentucky there, nearly 20% of school districts are now closed
