stephanie: welcome back. people eating at a restaurant in mississippi say they heard a surveillance booms and this is what they found when they came outside, a giant sinkhole that swallowed at least a dozen cars. it's longer than the length of a football field. the city says a drain pipe collapsed. thankfully, no one was hurt. after a busy year of construction projects, new hampshire's department of transportation is gearing up for another winter. repairs were made across the state including the giant sinkhole on 93 in concord. what are the chances that could happen again? mike cronin takes a look at what's being done to keep the
11:13 pm
state's highways safe. reporter: the drive on interstate 93 in concord is now a smooth ride over the area that was once a massive 20-foot wide, 25-foot deep sinkhole. in august the northbound side of the highway was shut down for the night while crews sealed a burst culvert more than 50 years old. >> whether it happened over a long perfect of time is not clear, but apparently all the fill that was around it eroded and created a large cavity. reporter: there were no injuries, the fix came with a price tag of more than $215,000. department of transportation public information officer bill boynton says the sinkhole highlights the importance of having adequate drainage. >> if you let them deteriorate and you don't put the investment in them, without replacing them, you're looking at a much more mostly and destructive result. reporter: elsewhere a $1.1 million emergency repair project is under way on route 135 in lancaster.
11:14 pm
to close a section of the road for two months while crews fixed a problem created by flooding from the connecticut river. a slope failure also shut down part of fair ground road in plymouth during the day for about a week. boynton says preventing these problems goes back to drainage. >> it all incorporated into what we do and if you don't have proper drainage, your transportation system, your roads and bridges are all going to be vulnerable. reporter: the state says 68% of new hampshire's state and municipal roads are in good or fair condition, while 32% are in poor or very poor condition. d.o.t. is proposing $10 million in funding over its 10-year plan to help address culver issue as cross highways in the state. that will go to the governor's desk next month and the legislature next year. >> we get the bill first, the public works and highways committee, and we don't change it a whole lot. but there will be some things that we probably, some tweaks
11:15 pm
to make sure we get some of the possible. reporter: representative chandler says there's a lot of work to do, but first he would like to identify potential trouble areas to prevent failures like the sinkhole. >> somewhere we need to get an inventory or a study of where situations like that might exist, where municipalities have drainage couple verts, the old type system underneath the new state highways. reporter: the legislature is currently considering a bill that would bring funding to highway maintenance by taxing drivers of electric cars. some lawmakers argue those motorists aren't subject to the gas tax. >> some of us look at that as just fairness. the people who are driving on the roads should pay something. reporter: d.o.t. is finishing as many construction projects as it can before the weather and cold temperatures limit what crews can do. >> the best way to have effective drape age and and to prevent those failures is to
11:16 pm
operations and preserving that, that's what we're doing as much as we can. stephanie: thank you, mike. the route 135 repair project is scheduled to finish on november 13. as for this winter's snow budget, d.o.t. will get more than $42 million, that's about 7 million less than what the department spent last winter. a strange light over the los angeles area captured the attention and the imagination of a lot of people. >> what is that? >> we're being invaded. stephanie: police, coast guard and tv stations all say they got inundated with callsover night about that suspicious light. but the coast guard says it came from the test flight of a naval rocket off the california coast. hayley: believe it or not we've actually been getting a lot of reports of fire balls in the sky over new hampshire, and that's because of a meteor shower now. tonight would be a great night
11:17 pm
to check it out. claremont completely clear skies. not even any fog has formed. in portsmouth it's a cold night there. and a lot quieter at market square as things have settled down for the evening. i want to share with you the temperatures and where we stand right now. 34 degrees in exeter, same thing in fremont, 32 in auburn. already we've fallen into the 20's in some spots. we're close to that in new london, 30 degrees. 32 in sunapee. lakes region, can you see 30's as well. 31 degrees in tilton, 29 in ashland. here's where the 20's really are, whitefield, 25 degrees. lancaster 26. pittsburgh about 29 degrees right now. we have some cold air in place, and as the winds have died down you can see only three miles per hour there in concord, with the wind dying down the skies completely clear, that's the recipe for a cold, cold night. that's what we're seeing happening here.
11:18 pm
northern part of the state, maybe through erol and pittsburgh, but the rest of the state clear. when we look off toward the west, it's clear there too, high pressure firmly in place. in is going to suppress the air on top of us and as high pressure bail parks on top us tomorrow that will mean one of those days where it's crystal clear, blue sky, a beautiful one coming our way tomorrow. and the temperatures a little warmer tomorrow, too. then things change with this system. low pressure system right off the coastline here, feeding off of gulf of mexico moisture and some atlantic moisture too. eventually this makes its way up the east coast ask looks like we may see rain showers late on tuesday and wednesday as well from that system. here we go through time now on future cast, starting at 7:00 a.m., tomorrow morning, you might need to do a little scraping if your car is parked outside because we'll have the hard frost across the area, it will be a cold start. but a nice rebound with all the sunshine, temperatures quickly
11:19 pm
will get into the 50's across the state. even a few southern communities may touch 60 tomorrow, like manchester, salem, plaistow and possibly portsmouth seabrook. then once we get to tuesday, that's where things again to change. you start to see these clouds in southern new england, they begin to build in and there may even be a few scattered showers by the evening commute for those of you who commute along 93 or route 3 from manchester southward. but as we get into the overnight tuesday into wednesday, that's when it looks like well have more showers moving in. so the best chances for rain as we go through the week will be on wednesday and thursday, even friday as well. tomorrow completely dry. only the southern areas have to worry about a few scattered showers tuesday in the afternoon. tonight it's cold, teens north, state. a couple of third. 31 by daybreak tomorrow in manchester. so tomorrow, sunny, bright, a fall beauty about 57 degrees for the high temperature.
11:20 pm
and it looks like we'll start out cold but recover nicely to about 52 at lunch time, not a bad time to be out enjoying a quick walk. but then it gets cold quickly again tomorrow night, it will be chilly, a few scattered showers in southern new hampshire on tuesday, then for veterans day on wednesday maybe some of the ceremonies and parade might be damp in the morning, but then they should clear out for at least the second half of the day. stephanie: with a a beautiful way to start the work week. hayley: tomorrow looks great. stephanie: it was a pretty nice day today for soccer championships. >> that's right, four more high school soccer champions were crowned today. there are many sides to basketball star an fashion icon russell westbrook. and with coverage in the middle of anywhere from u.s. cellular, he can find some new ones. like, farmer. russell's brussels. russell speaking. paleontologist. hashtag t-rex.
11:21 pm
where am i? and t.v. spokesperson. that's my line. i got it. with u.s. cellular, you can do all the things you like, from the middle of anywhere. that is my line! jeb bush was a very strong governor, probably the strongest governor in the history of the state of florida. and i think there were some folks in the legislature that thought they might be able to run over him. that didn't happen. one tax cut wasn't enough- he had to do more. it wasn't enough to have 15,000 kids with school choice in florida, he wanted to have 100,000 kids. if he didn't like a project, it was going to be vetoed. it didn't matter if you were a republican. it didn't matter if you were his best friend. he said: 'this is where we're going, this is how we're going to reform state government...' every politician comes in talking about making change, and generally there's not much change. but governor bush made a lot of changes. he got the nickname veto corleone. if he saw something in the budget that he thought violated his conservative principles, you could guarantee it was gonna get whacked. he vetoed a bunch of my stuff
