9:11 am
hundreds of people gathered in time square sort of putting the pedal to the medal. it was for a good cause, the cycle for survival. so much fun. this is really a kickoff to all the fund-raising that goes on. people were cycling to raise awareness and also raise funds for cancer research. it was so fun. we had a great time and it was a special experience for me before we rode the bikes i got to go up on stage and talk about my sister and her rare melanoma that she has and how sloan kettering was able to help her and support the type of cancer she has even though only 700 cases exist in the world. >> how's lindsey doing? >> she's doing great. she just had a three-month scan. she's clear. mother of two, she's 27 years old, so it's an intimidating thing and then to find out you're dealing with something

9:13 am
pretty much everywhere else. combine the winds with that and that's what makes it feel a little uncomfortable. you definitely need a couple layers. rough surf from those winds will continue to create beach erosion and that goes on until monday because we're still going to get some rough surf, even though the hurricane is way offshore. minor coastal flooding for the jersey shore. that is until about 6:00 tonight, and people who live in these flood prone areas are usually aware of. high tide cycles and what can happen. hurricane joaquin stays out in the atlantic, continues its push, and we'll see bermuda and bahamas have been the most affected. the other thing is that that coastal low the last couple of days for the east coast has tapped into that moisture for the atlantic and has created big flooding problems happening down in the carolinas. for us we've got the coastal flood warning for 6:00. we also have a coastal flood advisory until 6:00 for long island. that goes into the western long island sound, even parts of
9:14 am
coastal connecticut. know where your high tide cycle is and be aware of that. we're expecting the waves to stay the biggest the longest. so from new england all the way down to the delmarva, not really looking at any rainfall. we'll see clouds and the winds and really north of the mason- dixon line once we get into the afternoon, the rain shuts off but it continues for the carolinas, is they're tapping into a little stream of upper level moisture that's being grabbed from hurricane joaquin. the projection again is way out to the northeast. it's a strong tomorrow but it's picked up speed. northeast movement right now is at 21 miles an hour. the winds will continue to be at least hurricane force it looks like until we get into wednesday, and then as it moves further out into the north latitudes it will turn into a low pressure system. cloudy and breezy, 62 for today. tomorrow we get a little warmer. the skies are going to look a little better and also the winds are going to pull back as well. it's not going to be as windy tomorrow afternoon. here's the accuweather seven- day forecast. breezy blend tomorrow is how the skies turn out.
9:15 am
tuesday and wednesday look great. both days are in the low 70s. we'll call it a fall classic. the nice first week of october we've got planned out looks to be above average by a couple of degrees or right at the average numbers which are in the upper 60s. overnight lows for us in the 50s here in the city, well upstate. i did see a frost advisory this morning. just saying. >> it's a little bit lower. >> it's hard to believe we are to the first week of october, and usually our last 80-degree day comes within this range of either the last five days, which we had or in the next seven, so maybe we can get one or two more warm days in here. we'll see. >> okay. >> squeeze them in. >> we just have to stop saying frost. >> thanks amy. >> you got it. >> straight ahead on eyewitness news sunday morning, how an army of mother's in chicago have come up with a creative and delicious way to fight back

welcome back everybody. it is 9:23. time for sports with laura behnke. good morning everyone. one week ago last night it was jubilation for the mets who clinched the nl east title. it's been downhill from there with two games to play yesterday. the mets were in danger of losing a fifth straight seeing home field advantage taken away to start the playoffs, and last night getting no hit by max scherzer. matt harvey started out as a big story in his final start in the regular season, struck out 11 in six solid innings. the bullpen would give up a run. 2-0 nats. a completely insurmountable deficit because scherzer was unstoppable and unhittable. he struck out 17 mets. his only base runner got there
9:23 am
in the 9th the final chance, curtis granderson pops out to end it. scherzer is the first since nolan ryan in 1973 to throw two no hitters in one season. and earlier in the day was game 1 of the day/night doubleheader. noah syndergaard dominant on the mound. he pitched 7 innings, had one hiccup in the 7th. clint robinson taking it deep for the solo home run, 1-0 nationals. juan lagares singles in lucas duda. the game is all tied up. the bullpen could not hold it. bryce harper 2-run home run off addison reed, 3-1, the mets take a tough loss in game 1. with that and last night's defeat that's five straight losses for new york. it was a scary moment for mets legend rusty staub who reportedly had a heart attack on thursday while on a flight from ireland to jfk prompting the plane to return to where it took off.
9:24 am
yesterday saying the 71-year- old is resting comfortably after experiencing a medical emergency. staub played 23 seasons in the majors with the mets and four other teams. all the yankees had to do yesterday is win a game. and home field advantage in tuesday's wild card would be theirs. thanks to friday night's rainout they had two chances to get it done. yankees and orioles meeting in game 2, 1st inning, nolan reimold, 1-0 nothing like that. manny machado picking up where he left off blasting another solo home run. the yankees battled back, that later tie it. we go to the 8, still a 3-3 game. dellin betances is on the mound and he uncorks the wild pitch score. that'll do it. 4-3 the yankees fall.
9:25 am
ed day began hours before at a still soggy camden yards in game 16789 manny machado quite active in this one as well. takes it von nova deep in the 5th. 2 for 5 with three rbi. that made it 3-0. chris davis the single to center. that scores another run. 6-0 baltimore. the yanks would cut the lead to 5. the orioles had an answer. a pair of runs score there. 9-2, the yankees swept in their doubleheader as well. they've now lost 5 of 6. and that's your morning sports. we're back again with you later tonight at 6. >> thank you laura. much more ahead on eyewitness news this sunday morning including a look at today's top stories. >> i'm cefaan kim, after the break we'll bring you the very latest on that deadly gas explosion in borough park. >> also a powerful typhoon is ramming into china forcing tens of thousands of people there out of their homes. >> and of course meteorologist

9:40 am
park. an hour. winds at times. here's a look at the latest as wind gusts go. it's that wind throwing the water against the shoreline that remains our problem through about 6, 7:00 tonight. temperatures could climb as much as 10 degrees. what we think will happen is that we'll see a little bit of for areas north. if you're in south jersey, if you're out on the island, you're likely going to have your clouds remaining for most of the day. some of the clouds being shoved inland or westward, and we've also got a drape of clouds coming down from the north. let's call it a mixed sky. mainly cloudy, but the chances to get brighter skies in here as well. there's a coastal flood warning until 6 p.m. we also have this coastal flood advisory for long island, also in the western sound, coastal connecticut. that goes until 6:00 tonight. there's a high surf advisory until monday evening at 6. that's because we're still
9:41 am
up here because of joaquin, even though it's hundreds of miles offshore. what's happening from delmarva to new england things are pretty good. they're getting flooding rain down in the carolinas and once we get into the mid afternoon, it's only south of the mason- dixon line we'll continue to see problems with rain water. along the eastern seaboard, the surf will be pounded for at least the next 48 hours, even with joaquin way offshore. watch what happens with the storm. just continues that push out to sea, and diminishing in strength to a category 1 storm within the next 48 hours. they'll just continue to push into the northern latitudes, not making landfall. here's a look at the futurecast for us. pretty interesting. the clouds do stay further north and west you are, better chance for sun. they do stick around for tonight. for tomorrow, the showers are just offshore. it's another indication we're going to have energy right against the shoreline, even for tomorrow morning.
9:42 am
