11:03 am
had a front come through and the less humid air is coming in, it's going to hang around quite a while. probably for the rest of the week at least. not a whole lot of wind out there right now, but we do see a lot of sunshine. one exception is farther to the south, southern delaware we have some clouds and a couple showers headed in that direction. sussex county, delaware, maybe the southern portion of kent county could see a little shower. it's mainly dry as the westerly winds come in, the humidity is very low. the temperature, well, it's still above average for this time of the day, at this time of the year. most of the area. it's 83 in philadelphia. the average high is 84. we're going to go well past that. it's in the 70s to the north and west. and eastern a little warmer toward wildwood. so, as we go through the day today, we'll be finding temperatures going into the upper 80s, but the humidity will be low, so it's still going to be relatively comfortable. it will be getting more

11:05 am
2009. now, the dollar has gotten stronger, oil has rebounded. asian markets were mostly higher and european markets were mostly higher. we saw china step in and cut the interest rate for the fifth time since november, so that probably gave some boost to those markets overseas. made us feel a little better here today. i think a lot of what we saw yesterday, as we discussed, was some panic selling. perhaps we've gotten our feet back under us here. investor confidence is higher. we heard from companies like best buy today coming out and saying, look, we aren't seeing any of the impact so far. we don't want to make any knee-jerk reactions as it pertains to our customers, our business, so we have gotten some positive commentary from ceos and very important market figures. sort of working to instill confidence back in the market. so, things have certainly gotten better here. we're seeing big names that shed a lot yesterday like apple trading higher. apple is at 5.6% today.
11:06 am
it is still down for the week but still we've made up some ground. we'll keep you updated as to the market moves throughout the day. so far, it looks a lot different from yesterday. back to you. >> the take dast way for the average investor, stay steady, right? >> exactly. just as we said yesterday, don't panic. it serves as a good reminder to give yourself a gut check, a portfolio check, make sure your risk profile is where it should be so you can sleep at night. but you don't want to make any panic, irrational, emotional decisions on a day like yesterday because look at today. looks so much better. >> exactly. courtney reagan with cnbc. thanks. philadelphia police say a man wanted for robbing and attacking a worker with mace has struck again. this is new video showing the man at the 7-eleven store at 22nd and market streets last tuesday. philadelphia police say he asked for six packs of cigarettes and sprayed the clerk with mace as he was bagging the items.

11:15 am
donors at his residence after labor day. adding to the drum beat that began with the vp's not so secret lunch with elizabeth warren. who would the president back? his vice president or former secretary of state? press secretary josh earnest said he respects hillary clinton but heaped praise on joe biden. >> there's probably no one in american politics today who has an understanding of what is required to mount a successful national presidential campaign. >> reporter: later, he added to the intrigue. >> i wouldn't rule out the possibility of an endorsement in the democratic primary. >> reporter: and what would a biden/clinton showdown look like? their policy views are mostly in line. they part ways on national security. secretary of state clinton pushed for more aggressive military actions on libya and syria while biden was more cautious. the biggest split, the osama bin laden raid. clinton said she pushed for it

11:18 am
rowhomes and past the italian market and all the great sights and sounds of philadelphia. we wanted to create that experience and that's what makes this race different and unique. >> how many runners? >> 4500 this year. >> unique through neighborhoods, which means road closures. >> yes. some road closures. it's a 10k race so it's not like a marathon, 6.2 miles. the road closures will be fairly minimal. you can go onto the website and see where the course is. if you're parked along the course, you want to avoid it that sunday morning. road closures only for an hour, hour and a half on that morning, except for around the start and finish line. otherwise, we want to get in, get out and have people get on with their day. >> i know you said -- you told me earlier that the race is sold out. it sells out pretty quickly. what if people want to watch and support and kind of get into this. >> that's the great thing about the race. you don't have to get in your car -- assuming you live in philadelphia, you don't have to get in your car and drive to see the race. for people that live in the city, you can walk out your front door and you're probably
11:19 am
within a few blocks of where the race is. anywhere along the course is a great place. the start/finish line is a great place. the finish festival is open to the public, so people who want to watch friends, family or just the activities can come down to the festival afterwards and hang out. >> another little piece we should talk about, is that you're partnering with charities. >> yeah, absolutely. so, having charitable partners is a big priority for us. so, we've got two kind of different partnerships we have. first, we work with the philadelphia association of community development corporations. they support neighborhood cdcs in the philadelphia area. they're a direct beneficiary. some money gets donated directly to them. then a whole list of nonprofits of students from philly style, the fairmount park conservancy who get bids and sell for their nonprofit. all told $15,000 gets raised as a result of the race. >> good luck. we'll would remind our viewers,y

11:21 am
70s. 84 in atlantic city. let's see what it's like right at the beaches here. the wind, a little bit out of the west. you can see we're into the 80s. beach areas off delaware bay keeping lewis a little cooler. that's a fairly light wind some places may see a sea breeze later on in the afternoon. we have one shower here in maryland headed toward portions of southern delaware. otherwise it is a really dry weather map out there. as we go through the afternoon, we're into the upper 80s. you see hardly a cloud in the sky out there. we have some delightful weather coming. as we go through the night tonight, you see temperatures going down into the 50s in parts of the area.
11:22 am
well, this is erika, formed last night. 45-mile-an-hour winds. moving west at 20 miles an hour. it is a threat to the northern caribbean and potentially the bahamas. it is expected to strengthen somewhat, but there are a lot of questions about how much it might strengthen even though the track seems fairly certain, at least in the general idea of the track. for the rest of the day around here, we'll be seeing lots of sunshine. high temperatures getting into the upper 80s, low humidity. the humidity is going to keep going down every hour. as we go stlut seven-day, not quite as warm tomorrow. lower humidity. similar story for thursday and friday. then it starts to heat up as we go through the weekend. so, by sunday and monday, we're back up to 90 degrees. >> glenn, thanks. a typhoon makes landfall. we'll show you where a powerful storm came ashore. and the danger officials are concerned could soon follow.

11:31 am
energy consumer, so it has a knock-on effect of global growth if china slows down. what we're seeing in the nasdaq is many u.s. listed chinese stocks at the top of the winner's list. i'm sure a lot of your viewers might have big-name techs in their portfolio. the tech sector is also set to end its losing streak. tracking its best day since december, led by names such as apple. that's a big relief because names like apple, netflix, linkedin, that had a pretty rough august up until today. we're up sharply today but we have not quite made up for yesterday's losses and the losses of thursday and friday. but for the moment, we're enjoying the biggest rally of 2015. >> hours more to go. amanda drury with cnbc, thanks. well, the jersey shore saw some showers but things have dried out. right now it lookis like a grea
11:32 am
time to check out the beach. nbc10 chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here with our forecast. >> yesterday the humidity was up but today the humidity is down. we have delightful weather in the pocono mountains. wave pool at camel beach. and it is nice and comfortable up there. things are a little different farther to the south. not only is it a little warmer, it's a little more humid. even dover at 80 degrees is not bad. it's 72 degrees in mt. pocono right now. and 80s across much of the rest of the area. those showers from earlier this morning moved out. there's still one renegade shower here in the maryland eastern shore headed toward southern delaware. that's about it for any kind of rain threat. it's conceivable it could cross delaware bay. we'll keep an eye on it as we go into the afternoon. that's the only real rain threat here. we do have some clouds across the great lakes. even much of that moisture is going to be headed up towards
11:33 am
new england and not into our area. we expect a lot of sunshine during the afternoon across the philadelphia area. places north and west. northern delaware, upper 80s, but lowering humidity as we go through the day. there's the eastern caribbean. that is tropical storm erika that formed last night. 45-mile-an-hour winds. more on the track of that and eventual possibilities over the next seven days with the forecast just a few minutes. let's talk about typhoon making landfall on japan's southern island this weekend. authorities ordered 300,000 people to evacuate. it brought heavy rain and officials are warning people to be alert for flooding and landslides. now to that new england prep school trial. as early as today, prosecutors could wrap up their case against a former student accused of sexual assault at the prestigious boarding school. all along the defense insisted
11:34 am
owen never had sex with his accusers but uncomfortable testimony from several of his classmates yesterday told a different story. >> reporter: today prosecutors could wrap up their case against 19-year-old owen lebree after four classmates testified he left them believing he did have sex with the victim. >> what was the message he conveyed to you? >> certainly a smile. i left under the impression that they did have sex. >> he eventually told me that in his words that he had [ bleep ] her. >> what does that word mean to you? >> i assume it would mean that they had had sexual relations. >> reporter: one classmate, who's a minor, said he was more direct. >> there was a private conversation between me and owen where i asked them if they had sex, which he told me they did. >> reporter: he has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault and other charges, telling police he never had intercourse with the
11:35 am
girl. one of the nation's most elite boarding schools now under scrutiny as testimony details a lurid ritual known as the senior salute where older students ask out younger ones before graduation, sometimes for sex. st. paul's has said the current allegations are not emblematic of the school, but on monday the dean of students told jurors he learned of the senior salute in the spring of 2013. >> were you at all familiar with the practice or what was involved in practicing of senior salute? >> in relatively vague terms, yes. >> reporter: prosecutors allege lebree had been plotting the encounter with the 15-year-old freshman for months on a list of girls he wanted to pursue or slay, her name was in capital letters. his attorney says crude messages to his friends do not mean he is guilty. >> his statements have been typical teenage statements, in my view. with all the immaturities,
11:36 am
imperfections, uncertainties that are reflected in teenagers. >> that was nbc's gabe gutierrez reporting. a sexually suggestive welcome sign greeting first-year students at a virginia university is not sitting well with everyone. these are banners that decorated an off-campus home near old dominion university in norfolk friday. it tells the parents to leave freshman daughters for a good time. oh, moms can stay, too. >> the perception that was there when they were moving in is that this is not a welcoming environment nor do we take an approach to combat sexual assault, which is completely not true. >> now, the signs are gone. outraged administrators said the signs would not be tolerated, emphasizing a zero tolerance policy. as one prison officials put it, you can't make this stuff up. a drone poised to drop drugs, porn, tobacco inside a maryland
11:37 am
prison is intercepted before it took off from the ground. police say two men planned to use the drone to make that special delivery into a western maryland prison. investigators found the items, along with a gun in the suspect's car on saturday. they arrested the men who were under surveillance in connection with the contraband case near the prison. the prison inmate is expected to face charges as well. a 22-year-old michigan man is in jail after he tried to get away from police riding a mini bike on the sidewalk. police spotted the man illegally riding down the sidewalk and they tried to stop him. he think es can get away, so he keeps going. the chase lasted all of 60 seconds. then look what he does. he tries to hide in his aunt's house by riding the bike inside. the police knocked down the door and arrested him. new orleans mayor mitch landrieu is expected to release a comprehensive plan today for a possible catastrophic event. it's part of a commemoration to mark the tenth anniversary of
11:38 am
hurricane katrina. the mayor is calling the plan a resilience report. the strategy is expected to highlight some of the recovery and survival stories from across the region. more than 1800 people died during hurricane katrina and in the days following that devastating storm. saturday marks the ten-year anniversary since hurricane katrina made landfall along the coast of louisiana. the most costly natural disaster in the u.s. changed the landscape of new orleans forever. nbc's scott walker takes a look back. >> reporter: the superdome was a living hell for the 30,000 people inside in the days following katrina. >> there was no running water, no functioning toilets, no hvac, cramped conditions, hot and humid. >> reporter: doug thornton, executive vice president for smg, the company that manages the superdome, was inside through it all. >> and i thought, it's over. we'll never be back here. i mean, how can we survive? >> reporter: as bad as it was in the immediate aftermath, things were about to get a lot worse.
11:39 am
>> the water had risen to almost 5 feet in about 3 1/2 to 4 feet on gerard street and seeped through the doors and all the crevices into our central plan and elevated to almost 10 inches. >> reporter: the superdome had been on generator power for two days and everyone was on high alert because of a dire warning from then-police superintendent eddy compton. >> they can't stop the water from coming into the levees. there could be as much as 8 feet of water tonight, 8 more than what you have. >> reporter: thornton says at the dome, there was no room to spare. if the water climbed another few inches, the superdome's generator would have been overcome by water and the 30,000 people inside plunged into total darkness and utter chaos. >> you have a panic situation on your hands. people won't know how to get out of the building. i mean, literally, you wouldn't be able to see your hand in front of your face. >> reporter: thornton says he and his team keep the
11:40 am
potentially dire situation confidential. then the decision was made to mark the current water level to see if it would actually go up. >> you know, we know where it is right now. it's got to go another 3 to 4 inches before it hits the generator. >> reporter: this part of the wall in the central plant at the bottom of the superdome was updated with markings every 30 minutes. >> the water rose 2 inches and stopped. >> reporter: and because the generator survived, really, so did the dome. >> for me, it was probably the scariest moment. and it was one of those tipping points, i think, in this whole disaster. if we lose power, full power in here, we could have had a terrible loss of life. >> reporter: and if thornton has his way, the water marks will never go anywhere. >> i've told our guys that, to me, those water marks are a part of history and we should never erase that. >> reporter: in new orleans, scott walker for nbc news.

does not look especially well organized and it may have some obstacles in its way with dry air and wind shear that danny did, but the forecast from the computer models, very consistent. that's a high probability of it going near puerto rico, perhaps a little north of puerto rico. if it survives, going toward the bahamas by early next week. and the official forecast from the hurricane center does go along with that. just north of puerto rico and out toward the bahamas by sunday. then, of course, things would get much more interesting. but there are questions as to whether it is going to make it that way. until we're sure about that, we won't get excited about any threats to the united states. nice and sunny today. temperatures into the upper 80s. humidity dropping by the hour. tomorrow and thursday and friday, we have low humidity
11:49 am
along with these comfortable temperatures. nice at night. low 60s in philadelphia. 50s in the suburbs. then we start to heat up on saturday, get even hotter on sunday and monday as the humidity creeps up, too. we'll be right back.
