8:06 am
i'll keep my eye on that and keep you updated. another new crash in volusia on 415, partially blocked at alligator ranch road, seems to be clearing, not causing any delays there. taking a look at drive times, i-4 westbound still pretty slow. lake mary to colonial, about 24 minutes. i-4 eastbound, attractions to downtown, 21 minutes. and 408 westbound from 417 to downtown, about 13 minutes. also developing right now, a shootling investigation now underway in daytona beach. >> right now, the gunman could still be on the run. police are now investigating two crime scenes, one at a house on sherton drive, the other down the street. it is at cypress park. started about 11:00 last night. there may be two people shot. police are still collecting evidence from this car, the one they believe the shooter was driving at the time.

8:13 am
. 8:12 here on good day. by the year 2050, smiths estimated that nearly half the planet will be near siteed. >> according to a new study published just last week. in the u.s., we're well on our way there. nearsighted numbers have doubled over the last 50 years in this country. it's specially high in eastern asia, 96 % of 19 -year-old men in china are now nearsighted. what happened to the other 4 %? and according to these researchers, it's often because of a mistake that most of us are making every day. >> local optometrist is joining us. what's the problem sph. >> well, technology is the problem. we're starting kids early. you know, ads young as 3 years old, you see kids coming with an ipad, walking in and so they're locked into this close up vision. what people don't realize, you don't have to be genetically predisposed to be nearsighted.
8:14 am
nearsighted, mommy's nearsighted, my child's going to be nearsighted. that's not the case. you can induce nearsightedness. it's a muscle thing. when you look to focus up close, your muscle's lined up to focus. when you look far away, your muscle's relaxed. we're inducing this nearsightedness by getting kids to focus on computers, close up, college, people on their cell phones constantly. we're not getting away from this close up. i always joke now and say when do you use your far vision anymore? to drive the car. and so you can do things the prevent it. there's a thing we call the 20 -20 -20 rule. so think every 20 minutes, you need to look 20 feet away from you for 20 sarcodes. you need to relax the muscles in your eyes. it's like when you go to the gym to work out.
8:15 am
i want to just tone. they'll tell you, lift ten times, take a break. so the muscles need to relax. same thing with your eye muscles. they need to relax. so even encouraging your children to go outside and play in the park or play outside. get their vision to relax far away. take away the technology from them for a few hours every night. everything in modivation. adults have to do that, too. we're creating nearsighted for adults, not only children, any age. >> also, we're not getting enough outdoor sunlight which is a problem, too. >> you're just in essence thinking of relaxing your eyes, looking far away because of the sunlight. it's about relaxing your eyes, looking far away. >> got you. which is why when driveling that helps us. >> correct. >> once you eyesight starts to go because of this, can it get better if you start looking further? will you correct your own problem sph. >> you can. we get a lot of children who come in, warning signs you need
8:16 am
at the end of the school day? more abnormally tired, are they getting headaches at school, complaining, are their grades dropping? are they saying, i can read but i can't say the board. we get a lot of children who come in and say i can't see the board. but they don't have a problem with the board. they're having problems reading and their muscles are having so much work to do when they look far away, their eyes can't relax to see the board. if you ask them, just take a few minutes and the board clears up. then it's not nearsightedness because nearsightedness would be blurry all the time. it's here that's creating an issue here. >> what's your website? >> fruci eye thank you for having me. we are compiling the information now, cristen and myself, executive producer josh
8:17 am
battle plan as we see two distinct clusters of gather intense gulf rainfall now crossing over the west side of the peninsula and heading to an area near you. we have a tornado watch for the shaded counties until 10:00 a.m. in our viewing area, alachua, marion and sumpter counties included in that, that continues out along the sea shore of our fine portion of the state, along the gulf. and again, you can see why. so what concerns me now is for you guys in marion county is cluster number one. here's number two. that is likely drawing a bead on metro orlando. the stuff that is of a media sea now is the stuff moving into ocala. we told you about arrival between 8:00 and 9:00 this morning. current time, 8:17. spot on with the modeling. the rough stuff increasing and starting to load up around the tampa area.
8:18 am
and i'm watching what's happening offshore here. we're seeing in some of these, real discrete rotation a little spin as the stuff continue to to approach the mouth of tampa bay and once that gets on shore, it's a full on ball game. anything competent to proceed. so what i'm watching for is the rotational component, with a tornado threat if we see that and that's why we have a watch in that mentional area. a lot going on within that clust storms. hope everything's okay with done ellen. you can see the east side of town getting beat up pretty good. from there, it jumps i 75 and continues working to the northeast at a good solid 45 miles per hour. so again, timing, we've confirmed ocala, 8 to 9:00 a.m. mount dora, heads up lake county, all of lake county within the vicinity, 9 to 9:30.
8:19 am
impactful and very concentrated rainfall, the roughest stuff within that cluster moving through. also of note, i-4 corridor, orlando, the stuff i showed you in tampa should be moving and in knocking on the door between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. we'll see it speeds up sloeshgss down, we'll update you accordingly and you can see cocoa beach, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and once we get through this, it's looking really nice. and by tomorrow, the front sweeping the area clean and dry. sunshine prevailed all weekend long. pleasant temperatures, cool warnings, pleasant afternoons. happy wednesday, everybody. i have something to tell you. it's a fuel spillage at obt and caly street. you can see we are seeing significant delays both directions there. so definitely just be aware of that if you have to travel through that area this morning. taking a look right now at your short drive times, which are pretty long right now.
8:20 am
i-4 westbound from the 434 to fairbanks, about 13 minutes. the 408 is looking good, up to speed. time now for your fox 35 pump patrol. 157 at the speedway on east cimarron and willsure in casselberry. you can always check out gas saving tips on your website at fox 35 and click on traffic. thank you. coming up, forget the grocery store. >> david is helping you pick your own produce. this is a new way to do it, david. >> let me ask you a quick question. how many different varieties of strawberries do you know? how many can you name? >> one. the strawberry. >> i just learned there are more than one. there are seven here on this farm. the beckonmier family farm where you can pick all seven varieties. and here's what's great. bring the kids out. they're going to have a great time stuffing them strawberries

8:22 am
8:23 am
. 8:23. skip the grocery store and pick your own strawberries right out of the field. >> yeah, this was fun.
8:24 am
>> they're not in the field, either. >> right. if you're wondering what that is, david martin is showing us this morning. >> you know, i love history. behind me, look at that beautiful house. that's on old house. julie here, julie grew up in that house. were you born in that house? >> no, i was not. >> my dad was. >> and this farm here used to be a citrus farm. >> it was a citrus farm as far back as 1920 and then the greening disease took care of all the trees and they sky died and we had to repurpose it. >> and you've done that with these beautiful red strawberries. you're now a you-pick-it strawberry farm. let's talk strawberries with jason walker. >> thanks for inviting us out here this morning. i love this. bring the family out for a couple hours and you entertain them and you feed them.
8:25 am
and they get beautiful, precious and delicious strawberries. it's awesome. >> i should have worn red. >> i'm looking at this hydroponic systems. this is very interesting. what is the advantage of going furthical? >> so the vertical, we don't use dirt as a medium to grow the plants so we use something called coconut core as the primary medium. so we don't have the weeds, the seeds of other plants in there, not fighting weeds with this and it's very clean and very nutrition, very organic and snoofrm in that white box is coconut core? >> coconut core. it's the husk of coconuts that's been ground up and dehydrated and we get it and hydrated it and itects pands and we phot in here. >> and the water drips from the stoptop of the system. >> brings the nutrients with it, drops into the top pot and it goes all the way, trickles all the way down through the pots and into the bottom pot which is growing other vegetable. >> what is that right there?
8:26 am
>> you said there's seven varieties of strawberries. can you name them? >> we've got six here. there are more. we've got festivals, radiants, sweet sensation, albeon, san an dray is, and red myrtles. >> i had no idea. so the website is basically facebook. you're on facebook. we can find you where? >> and we're your bff's since 1920. >> and you're only open what days of the week? >> friday and saturday at this point. friday, 10:30 to 3:00. and saturday, 9:00 to 3:00. and if people are coming, you we stay open. you pay by weight of the bucket for the strawberries. and we'll pick the other vegetables fresh for them.

8:31 am
metro, tampa bay areas and south of that to far south western florida. so we're still under the gun here. i'm watching a couple distinct clusters now, moving in. this is the one that concerns me now. we told you between 8 and 9:00 a.m., arrival in ocala where they're now south of that. this next cluster genning up, some rotation over the eastern gulf of mexico. so if that maintains and these things roll on shore, becomes rather telling as to where we may be headed weather wise to the next 2 or 3 hours. now, of immediate concern for our marion county viewers and residents, i want you to find your safe place right now. the big cluster move toing into ocala, right now rbis experiencing high winds on the west side of your community, back across i 75 and through and east of the done ellen area. that's pretty nasty stuff right there. get out of the way of that and you can see more springs at the end of that line at about 22 minutes, racing rapidly north and east at 45 miles per hour.
8:32 am
ocala, the arrival between 8 and 9:00 a.m., mount dora looks like 9, 930. areas southwest and northeast of that city center point there, i-4 corridor, metro orlando, 10:00 a.m. to the noon hour and cocoa beach to brevard, and such, probably between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. as the system continues, literally plowing through the eastern gulf and becomes rather impactful across the interior and the east side beaches here before the noon hour. again, you can see the numbers strictly through the 70s, a warm, muggy morning, storms on the way. good news, by 5:00, rain chances slowly begin to peel back. a gradual baby step type process, but delivers a shock around the front and delightful area. we'll talk about that straight ahead. people cress the southeast, including here on florida, will be assessing damage today. >> we have video from pensacola where the strong line of storms already spun tornadoes and that's the one heading our direction.
8:33 am

8:34 am
we had to run to the bathroom. heard our trees starting to crack, maybe five minutes after that, phones started ringing, a lot of our scouts that live in a neighborhood we call north point, trees in the roof, houses with no roof. so we made our way into the neighborhoods to try to help as much as we could, going from house to house. i believe your porch and your news later on will tell you it's a lot more than one house. >> thank you for going out and risking your own life last night. we're taking a look at some of these amazing photos you sent to us. it looks like an rv or is that a home was flipped over? there's debris everywhere. looks like you shot maybe a funnel cloud. it looks like a lot of damage. are you hearing of any injuries this morning? >> last night, we did by some of the first responders, but doing search and rescue stuff in my
