people who live in the area that this has been the safest summer in new york. no one else believes that except for the two people who were on your set. >> reporter: minutes later chris christie slammed the mayor's remarks. >> this guy doesn't believe it. he doesn't believe it's the safest summer. >> reporter: referencing the shooting of 44-year-old carey gabay, a lawyer in governor cuomo's administration who was struck by a bullet monday morning in brooklyn. he says de blasio's liberal policies made the problems of crime and homelessness worse. here's what he said he would do differently. >> stop and frisk would be back and if police officers step over the line, then they deserve to be taken care of and prosecuted. but this guy, this mayor, presumes guilt on the part of the police officers before anything happens. >> reporter: mayor de blasio is responding to governor christie's comments. a spokesperson for the mayor told fox 5, quote, it appears the governor from new jersey is
as confused about our crime stats as he is about his polling numbers. they're both down. the spokesperson referring to the governor's run for president. back to you. steve: yikes. thank you, kerry. very interesting. skyfox hd flying over the crash of a plane crash. the pontoon caught the water as the pilot took off. a good samaritan helped rescue the 57-year-old, who was not injured. incredible visuals. amazing the plane washed ashore. the faa is trying to figure out what caused the crash. dari: firefighters still battling a forest fire that burned a thousand acres. it's about 50 percent contained. the fire started yesterday in woodland township, burlington county, and spread to ocean county. officials are saying there's been no damage to property and to homes no homes in the path, but no

week, removing 1,200 drivers from 800 buses throughout a dozen districts, including north point and 3 village central. districts have started reaching out about a possible strike to give parents time to prepare if it does happen. >> we have been working diligently for eight months to get him to budge off his outrageous concessionary, in my opinion, union-busting proposals. >> reporter: a spokesperson says they will be meeting with a federal mediator to try to resolve the differences. another meeting will be held tomorrow night with both the union and the company. jodi goldberg, fox 5 news. dari: in just a little while, serena williams will face off against her sister venus in the u.s. open quarter finals. steve: every athlete has their own strategy. serena likes to relax. she was out with kim kardashian last night. dari: tmz executive producer harvey levin is in the know and is here to tell us about their dinner date. >> reporter: yeah.
i mean, i was really shocked at this. they went to carbone in the city and left together in a big limo. they've been friends for a long time. but, guys, you know this. in an -- serena could win the grand slam. that hasn't been done since '88. and she has to get past her sister. now, her sister has won 11 matches against her. so i don't think this is a done deal necessarily. the fact that -- i don't know if she went out with kim last night, either she doesn't have a care in the world and she's that confident, or, i don't know, maybe kim is a good luck charm. but i was really surprised to see them. they spent the evening together. steve: it does set up her for the second-guessing on sports radio and everything saying maybe she should have prepared for the match more than going out with kim. it is an outwardly confident thing to do. dari: maybe she was carb loading.
>> it's italian. you may remember when she was dating reggie bush, that's where reggie won the super bowl. so this could be -- maybe she's a good luck charm. dari: that's a good point. steve: very interesting. dari: who knows what people do to relax. maybe kim is calmer than we know. steve: true. lots of likes on instagram. that's all that matters. harvey, good talking to you. we appreciate it. >> okay. steve: all right. tonight is the big match between serena and venus williams. dan bowens will have a live preview in a few minutes. dari: well, keeping messages and pictures from prying eyes. steve: we'll tell you about innocent-enough looking apps that are gaining popularity among kids and adults who are looking to keep a secret. dari: and have a vanessa williams returning to the miss america

dari: if you've ever wondered what's on your teenager's phone and you looked and it looked kosher, think again. >> there are secret apps that can hide what they're saying, doing, texting. baruch shemtov shows us. >> reporter: a recent survey found almost 75 percent of 13 to 17-year-olds have access to a smartphone.
increased connectivity can sometimes mean increased risk. secret apps are making it more difficult for parents to discover what their kids are really doing on their phones. what looks like a harmless calculator may be a password protected vault hiding photos never meant to be discovered. this app, high calculators, an example of a secret app used by kids to hide information from parents monitoring their smartphone and tablet activity. >> it was like a decoy app. it pretends to be a very innocuous looking calculator, maybe a game, but it's a secret photo album or sometimes like a secret messaging service. >> reporter: this staff writer at tom's guide and laptop magazine says secret apps are changing the game. >> if they feel they're safe, it encourages them to take more and store more on their phones. >> reporter: that can mean danger to kids. >> it's not like keeping your sensitive information makes you
safer from malicious attacks. >> reporter: a new approach for parents seeking to influence what their children do. >> teaching and talking to them is more important. you can't just be snooping on the phone. >> reporter: parents were not amused. >> it makes me nervous. >> it's ridiculous. >> you can't erase that. >> children shouldn't be hiding things from their parents. >> baruch shemtov, fox 5 news. steve: if only it worked like that. dari: there's a thought. steve: maybe someday. i doubt it. 30 years after winning the crown, vanessa williams returning to the miss america pageant as a judge. she was the first african-american to win in 1984. she resigned after penthouse publiced photos of hers. the pageant crowns miss america 2016 this sunday in atlantic city. dari: it is a diverse group of presenters for the emmy awards.
taraji and terrence howard from the hit show "empire" have been tapped to hand out statuettes and jimmy kimmel and others. the awards airs sunday night, september 20th, here on fox 5. well, as we've been saying, a family affair is happening tonight. u.s. open quarter finals. steve: venus and serena williams going head to head. the historic stakes in this longstanding sibling rivalry. dari: how widespread should autism screening be? there's you gotta get fios!" well, fios is a 100 network to the home, fastest internet and in-home and fios gives you too. so everyone in the house can get online. but the main reason to get fios? we're rated number 1 in customer satisfaction. ultimately, that's why. tv & phone starting at $79.99 a month.
steve: fox 5 health news. should every child be screened for autism? a highly respected panel of experts says yes, but not everyone is on board with this ambitious plan. dari: joining us is dr. devi from nyu school of medicine. good to see you. >> nice to see you. dari: this is incredible. talk about this. >> the american academy of pediatrics, which is the group of physicians, pediatricians, they are in favor of the widespread screening, that every kid should get looked at. the new report is from a government task force, a group of physicians, public health officials and experts, and they say you should only get screened if you have symptoms. then you should get looked at and diagnosed. the controversy hinges on a couple of things. if you get diagnosed, if you get
screened and diagnosed, do we have an effective treatment for autism? there's controversy there. there's no cure. if you have more intensive therapy, more behavioral treatment, that might be more effective. it's not a cure. that's problem no. 1. the second problem is you don't have a clear diagnosis in terms of a test. you can't do a blood test or imaging x-ray, mri or something and make the diagnosis. so the group is saying if you just screen everybody and you're not looking for symptoms that the parents bring to you, you might diagnose autism or awe -- steve: cause more trauma than not knowing. >> people will worry. the pediatricians argue if you don't do that, sometimes parents miss things or don't know enough to realize something is wrong. it's hard to know what the right answer is in that debate. dari: sounds like there needs to be more education and parents need to be more aware and look for any signs. thank you so much for that. okay. a lot of eyes on rhode island starting this year.
the state is going to require hpv vaccines for teens. every teen -- it's the first mandate. it's first to be seen in the country? >> i think washington, d.c., has the mandate, too. dari: for all teens? >> for middle schoolers, they were looking at them. in texas they tried to do it, but it didn't go through there. but the idea here, i think people are opposed to it because the idea thinking about middle schoolers or seventh graders and thinking about an std in the same thought process is distasteful. you don't want to think about std's with kids. at the same time, this vaccine is a lot more than a protection against a sexually transmitted disease. it's a cancer vaccine. it will protect you from hpv, the main cause of cervical cancer. if you think about cancer, there are three different time periods you could intervene. with cervical cancer, when the woman is still healthy so she
never develops the cancer. that's the idea of the vaccine. the other time you could intervene is once there is a cancer but before it spreads -- steve: if you caught it early. >> that's a pap smear. steve: to me it's difficult to see the down side. you get the vaccine and they don't get it. even if they delay sexual activity for a long time. >> i agree. it has nothing to do with that. at least when we talk about kids. the thing is the reason they need to have it early is because if they've started having sex, most likely they have hpv. if they're older, it doesn't matter if you're 50 or with one partner. once you start having sex, you have a high likelihood of getting hpv. if you want the vaccine to protect you, you have to get it before that. steve: all right, doctor, always something to think about. we appreciate it. thank you. >> nice talking to you. dari: what is it? 90? steve: 90. it's amazing. you said it earlier. the hottest day of the summer. today, september 8th, whatever it is. nick: usually you'd think after july 4th.
it's the hottest month of the year. but it was today. not just here. a lot of temperatures in the 90s. boston, 95. 92 albany. 93 philadelphia. they have been hotter in the washington, d.c. it was higher 90s earlier in the summer season. 91 at pittsburgh. 90 back to detroit. we have one more 90-degree day tomorrow and then a change will come with an approaching cold front that will bring the threat of showers and storms. and then eventually cool us down a bit. maybe this will be it as we move into september. maybe we won't see the 90s until next summer. we shall see. fox 5 sky guardian is not showing anything to track tonight. don't expect anything the rest of the night. i expect something starting later tomorrow afternoon first across the northern and western suburbs and then closer towards the rest of the area. that's going to last into cold front. not much out there. just a few clouds. more of the clouds streaming across upstate new york and a couple of showers in northern new england. you see a line of showers and storms west towards michigan. that's marking the cold front
that will arrive on thursday. that could produce heavy downpours. but it is 90 in the city. 95 poughkeepsie. same coming in from newark. 91 sussex. 80s from the jersey shore across long island. still 80 getting up to bridgeport. 81 on the east end at montauk. southwest wind has been around all day, 10, 15 miles an hour. will continue out of the southwest at the same speeds and come around to the south as we head into tomorrow and that wind will keep it hot and humid. not as hot tomorrow. we're likely to stop around 90, 91 in the city. high pressure off the south sliding slowly off to the east. that's produced this southwesterly airflow in our area for today. you can see the line of showers and storms that's marking the cold front. that will be sliding through. the front, we'll get dogged down. we may have to deal with a couple of showers friday morning before things improve. there's 90 or greater in the city. it's cooler to the west. chicago, 77. 74 minneapolis. 81 kansas city.
we'll tap into that air later this week. vegas, 104. 90s san francisco. that's rare for them. they've got it in the forecast for tomorrow. high 90s southern california. here's your futurecast. a few clouds tonight. tomorrow, sun and clouds. later in the day the isolated shower and storm north and west and tomorrow night, the chance will increase everywhere and into thursday. thursday could produce heavy rainfall around here, particularly in the afternoon into the first part of thursday night with lingering showers into the first part of friday before the improvement. boaters: >> watch out for rip currents tomorrow. 76 in the city tonight. 65 to 70 north with a few clouds. side. tomorrow, sun and clouds, a thunderstorm risk later in the day. 91 the high tomorrow. 82 thursday with showers and storms. and potential heavy rainfall, more showers friday morning, then sun. nice afternoon, 82, more comfortable. saturday, beautiful, 79. 60s in the morning. not sure how much rain we'll see sunday. could be showers and 77.
back to the upper 70s to around 80 with comfortable weather next week. dari: thank you, nick. it's not the first time they played each other, but it could be the last time they'll meet in the quarter finals in the u.s. open in 90 minutes. steve: venus could play spoiler in serena's hopes of winning the grand slam. dan bowens has more on the big match. >> reporter: steve and dari, it is the 27th time the williams sisters have played each other in a grand slam tournament. serena holds the edge. she's won 15 of the contests. tonight it is different. these two siblings will square off with more on the line than ever before. >> grew up together. they fight together, play together. doesn't get any better. >> reporter: it is the match tennis fans at flushing meadows outside arthur ashe stadium have been waiting for. >> it's phenomenal and a rarity. how many sisters have we seen in the past? >> a win for serena over venus
and she's on to the semifinals, one step closer to immortality, completing the grand slam. >> i like serena. the older sister, venus, she's hanging in there. >> venus, the older sister, standing in the way. she hasn't beaten her younger sibling since 2008. >> it's a chance to come back in a powerful way. >> reporter: time to choose a side. >> serena. team serena. going to be a good match. regardless of who wins, it will be a winning sister in the semifinals. >> reporter: only one sister can emerge victorious. a sibling rivalry of epic proportions says dr. jeff gardere. >> venus has been handling it very, very well. she has given a lot of praise to her sister and doesn't seem to be jealous at all. for her, it's not about the competition with her sister. only when they step on to the court together, then they forget
about being sisters and they become super competitors. >> reporter: bob's daughters are tennis players. he can only imagine the pressure of the moment. >> it's hard for a father to root for anyone. we hope everyone performs to their best. that's all you can hope for. >> reporter: what do the williams sisters say? venus say no one wants to play spoiler, but she's focused on winning the match that starts at 7:00. serena says in her opinion, she's playing the best player in the world, someone who knows all her strengths and all her weaknesses. back to you steve: an amazing story. tough for the parents. dari: two amazing athletes. so we'll see you back here tonight at 10:00. steve: here's ernie with what's coming up at 6:00. thank you very much. we are on top of the news for you and more coming up tonight. mayor de blasio trades barbs over the homeless with the former mayor. and we'll take an in-depth look at the problem.
