4:35 am
fast. we think people will be able to get to where they need to go pretty fairly early on saturday. but, you know, driving on the roads late at night when you're having heavy rains and gusty winds, that's not a good idea anyway. >> lots of people are concerned about the holiday travel combined with the rain from this hurricane. coming up in our next half hour at 5:00, we are from state highway patrol. reporting live in the mobile news tracker, i'm emma wright, cbs north carolina. >> okay. thank you. as a reminder, this is a great time to download our cbs north carolina weather app. do you have it? if not, you can stay up to date even if the power goes out so make sure you get it for your phones. in other news this morning, a man is in critical but stable condition after a shooting in durham. as of a couple hours ago, police

i did everything i could to make her party perfect. almost everything. you know, 1 i n 10 houses could get hit by an expensive septic disaster. but for only $7 a month, rid-x helps break down waste.
4:40 am
we could brag about what's in new light & fit yogurt. but we'd rather talk about what's not in it. like no artificial colors or preservative ingredients. and with 70 calories... maybe we're kind of bragging? new light & fit. so you know, we are just looking at the radar, but we're already seeing some of those outer, outer, outer bands right here right now. >> yeah. they're falling across portions of the sand hills. we have a number of watches, warnings, advisories to get to
4:41 am
but we have tropical storm warning in effect for all those counties shaded in orange. now, no one in our immediate viewing area is included in this, but you can see much of the coast is through the outer banks, through wilmington, surf city, all involved in that. tropical storm watch up towards elizabeth city. now, bringing you closer to our viewing area, we have a flash flood watch now in effect across the sand hills through sat morning. won't go into effect here in wake county until later today, but, again, 2 to 5 inches of so certainly low-lying areas will be the first to see some heavy rain collect, and then we'll start to see some of those more flood prone areas as well. we also have a wind advisory that will go into effect this afternoon. this mainly includes the sand hills. you can see hope, cumberland, samson and wayne counties included in that. wind gusts could top out between 35 and 45 miles per hour during that time frame. here they come through

4:43 am
4:44 am
4:45 am
hermine has now been reduced to a tropical storm. it made land fall in florida as a hurricane overnight, the first time such a storm has come ashore there in 11 years. hard to believe. hermine is packing winds of up to 80 miles an hour. it's already left thousands without power from overnight. we'll have a full report on how it could impact north carolina in just about four minutes. an elderly man is facing charges in the pileup that left another man dead in garner. po springs road and timber drive. it's believed 73-year-old job bergman was driving under the influence when he ran a red light killing tyrone pugh. the second suspect in the so-called slenderman stabbing is set to enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. the milwaukee journal sentinel reports the now 14-year-old girl
4:46 am
and another girl repeatedly stabbed a classmate to appease a fictional character. the girl was left for dead but survived thanks to a passing cyclist. the other girl already entered the same not guilty plea. instead of sitting, coloin kaepernick dropped to one near during the national anthem last night. practice footage from last month shows the san francisco 49ers quarterback wearing socks that feature cartoon pigs dressed as police officers. the socks to protest rogue cops and as someone with police officers in his family, he says he respects law enforcement. he has vowed to protest during the national anthem until significant change is made regarding racial oppression in this country. frms during her life she was also called the saint -- this sunday the woman who dedicated her life to the poor will take on a different name. thousands will gather as pope
4:47 am
for some, she has become just a name associated with kindness. for others, they felt she relied too much on faith and soo little on medicine. she remains a figure of controversy to this day. for many, especially catholics, her legacy can be summed up in this speech she gave during the 40th anniversary at the united nations. >> i have picked up from the streets hundred people, and by give k them to eat, by giving them a bed to sleep, i have red that the lonely, the unwanted is not so easy, and so then you and i must come forward and share the joy of loving, that we cannot give what we don't have. >> mother teresa died in 1997. since then, the catholic church attributed two miraculous healings to her. georgetown university is
4:48 am
wrong by offering preferential treatment to the descendants of slaifs. in 1838, the school sold 272 slaves to pay down its debts. the descendants of those slaves will now get an extra look and added consideration should they apply to the prestigious school. some graduates say it's long overdue gesture. >> if somebody had written a check in 1838 that wiped out the university's debts, there's no doubt in my mind that buildings will be named after that person would be celebrated, and his descendants would have no problem whatsoever being admitted to georgetown, even down unto this day. >> it's believed those descendants number between 10 and 15,000. space x still trying to come to terms with a massive setback this morning. wow, take a look. a test firing for a rocket ends in a massive fire ball at cape canaveral in na fla. it was hauling $195 million
4:49 am
expand internet access into africa. that rocket was designed to be used as part of a plan to transport people into space. as of right now, those flights are still set for next year, but it's unknown how the schedule will be impacted. well, after mostly dodging tropical storm madeline. hawaii is bracing for a second storm right behind it. as for madeline, it was mostly more bark than bite. >> it's been worse. stuff, and on the lower-lying areas, a friend lives down the road, and the rocks out in front of his property get moved around, big boulders sometimes. so this doesn't look that bad to me. >> several roads and a bridge that were closed because of flooding have already reopened, and all county and state services have resumed. on our coast, you know, desput the fact that it's been downgraded from a hurricane, it still has a lot of rain.
4:50 am
amount of moisture is not going to -- >> this typically happens when the storm makes land fall. yeah, we see it weaken, but it still has winds at 70 miles an hour. keep in mind, a hurricane is 74. so really a very strong tropical storm still. it's moving to the north-northeast about 14 miles per hour chl on that track, it looks like it will move through eastern north carolina late tonight, first thing tomorrow morning. still around the outer banks as we head towards, say, tomorrow te it is going to weaken considerably as we head towards the rest of saturday and as we head towards sunday and early next week. but you can see right now, it's located over georgia. it's going to continue to move along the east coast. that's when it will bring us the most rain is late tonight into tomorrow morning. we are talking about heavy downpours, 2 to 5 inches of rain expected around central north carolina. so we'll get to that in a moment. i want to talk about all these watches and warnings still in
4:51 am
orange. this pretty much goes upright to our viewing area, but mainly off to our east including newbern, the outer banks, wilmington, surf city. includes myrtle beach, south carolina, as well. we also have a flash flood watch. for some of you down around the sand hills, this has gone into effect. we'll continue through tomorrow morning. remember, we are going to see a significant amount of rain with this event, and we're also going to be dealing with very gusty winds. we are looking at this wind advi s saturday morning for these counties shaded in this light beige color. this includes the sand hills, includes hope, cumberland, samson, and wayne counties as we head into this afternoon. where is it raining already? the light rain is starting to move across portions of cumberland and samson county. steadier rains still off to our south. this system still bringing a lot of moisture with it. you can see it spinning up towards georgia. they are seeing those heavy
4:52 am
portions of georgia. those have come to an end for the time being. that could be a threat that could continue up the coast of south carolina, possibly up our coast, as well. i don't think we'll see that big threat, though, here in central north carolina. so that's good news for us at least. your forecast for the day ahead, do not be caught without the umbrella. 73, some patchy fog at 8 a.m., 76 at noon. 78 our afternoon high. much, much cooler than where we were yesterday. 76 heading into the 6:00 hour. it's going to be one of those days that the rain is going to continue make sure you're allowing extra time to get to that destination safely. so 7 a.m., pretty steady rain falling around the sand hills. this continues to spread north ward at lufrmg time -- lunchtime we're still seeing the rain pick up in intensity and coverage. 6 p.m. dealing with heavy downpours at that point in time. this continues into the overnight and into first thing saturday morning, but you'll notice a lot of this starting to gravitate towards our northeast about 8 a.m. tomorrow morning.
4:53 am
the clouds, though, are going to stick around. 78 our high in raleigh today. 77 in durham. 79 in fayetteville. tonight, we are dropping into the mid 60s. the rain, the wind still around. as we head into the next few days, there's morning showers saturday. we'll see significantly more sunshine for the rest of this holiday weekend. 82 on sunday. labor day still looking fantastic. 86 and wall-to-wall sunshine. 90s return by next wednesday. 4:53 right now. >> good morning. commute does not look now and beat the rain than wait because no delays. we do have a stalled car out there, but we are not seeing this really affect traffic near corporate center drive at nc 54 chapel hill road. travel through durham looks good. if you are planning on taking 85, the dot has issued an alert that expects major delays because of major roadwork going on as you head toward closer to virginia plus that rain from the storm. if you are heading through fayetteville, no problems to report to you there. if you are heading out to work,
