12:31 am
later. thank you for joining us tonight, i'm tony perkins and i'm shawn yancy. fans at tonight's bruce springsteen concert at nats park have about 20 minutes left to catch that last redline train. metro's safetrack work could leave some people strand after the show. sarah simmons is life at the ballpark. >>reporter: it is still going on. i want you to listen behind me. i want to test you to see if you know what the song is. yes, he is still going on. a lot of folks think he is in the on core but look at all the people that are leaving early if they want to take metro. it is closing before midnight. the last train leaving at 12:17:00 a.m. out of the navy yard station. i was talking to one man who said i never left a bruce springsteen concert earlier. you could tell
12:32 am
four hours is what he performed up in new jersey a couple of nights ago. given what is going on here and not in new jersey, we're at the navy yard station and with the issues with the metro a lot of people don't think he's going to go until midnight. i think a lot of people think they're going to be able to take the me row. take a listen from the performance inside. that's the boss from earlier this evening getting the crowd going there. but you know as we mentioned it may be tough if a lot of these folks didn't plan ahead. for one, that concert started a little late, just before 8:00. that's a problem. people are really taking their chances. if it ran late they didn't know how late he was going to play. they're still running on the safetrack hours. metro will likely close before the concert is expected to be over. take a look, these are the hours or the times rather that we have for those last trains leaving out of the navy yard station. the green belt connecting to the
12:33 am
redline, the last one leaves 11:20. just under 20 minutes from now, 11:39 for the last train to green belt. no redline connections on that one and then last train to branch avenue will leave here at 126789. 17:00 a.m. we've seen a lot of ubers and tackies just lining up here. metro bus is another option. that will be going much later into the night than metro will. metro is not opening as we reported early or late for not just this type of event or other special type ofance. they made that clear when they initially start fed safetrack. we mentioned earlier, marine corpse marathon. it's an issue that everybody is having to deal with when it comes to these special events. for the most part people understand and know that safetrack needs to happen. i got to say, if i were bruce springsteen or any performer i would not be happy that people have to
12:34 am
because in a major metropolitan the subway system is not going to accommodate people. listen, i'm all for safetrack. i think they're doing the right thing doing the repairs, but the marine corpse marathon, this, you got to accommodate your customers. to me, that's way think. if he doesn't know, why did all this side suddenly clear out? i would be a little frustrated. just a minute or so it sounds like the music has stopped. perhaps they are ending it a little bit earlier because they know that these folks need to get home. there are still quite a few people in there. tony, did you know the song. >> i couldn't hear it. > you couldn't. >> no, i couldn't hear it. that's too bad. i was going to test you. i figured you'd know every little note. > thank you,
12:35 am
all right. meanwhile in other news tonight, further south people are starting to prepare forth arrival of hurricane hermine. utility workers in georgia were out today getting gear in place in advance. georgia and the carolinas are anticipating power outages from the storm. parts of florida are already experiencing flooding and heavy winds and the storm starts to make landfall. the governor says 6,000 national guard members are ready to mobilize the storm pass he. sue palka is keeping a close eye on hurricane her mine. i understand that the new models have gone in. the national hurricane center just updated the track. they didn't change the much. it's got 80-mile per hour winds. but they are acknowledging that they have seen some strengthening. it's not a very symmetrical hurricane. there is a lot of power on the east side of it. we are a couple of hours of seeing it make landfall somewhere around
12:36 am
bay. very heavy rain. look at the band on the east side just battering the west coast of florida north of tampa to will ton. i wanted to show you the hurricane hunters flying away in there and they have found winds very close to the surface of 14 miles per hour. h this thing could strengthen in the next couple of hours as it makes landfall. latest track moving north, northeast at 14. it continues to keep it inland just a little bit as a tropical storm and then exits right around the outer banks still as a tropical system. this is still a very good new scenario for the mid atlantic because it is keeping it off the coast. you can see now where the cone of uncertainty does include the beeches but doesn't include the bay now. what is not good is how long it hangs out there h. notice the uncertainty as it still keeps it hanging around on labor day with winds of 65 a miles an hour. that would mean a long period
12:37 am
high surf and rip currents out at the beaches. it would also mean maybe a little less rain out there on that track. that's what we're much whatting. needless to say tropical storm watches remain in effect. it's bad news for florida obviously as the very strong hurricane, the first one to hit h since 2005 is coming to ashore and there will obviously be a lot of flooding issues down in florida. watch is up for us, maybe not even as much rain as we thought based on that current track. we know friday is looking fantastic and maybe we can take a little of the rain out of that weekend forecast. the tract can change a little bit and tony knows that very well, right, shawn. >> yes, indeed he does. > we're in the district now where police are investigating the city's 91st homicide of year. it happened this afternoon in southeast. the victim is just 17 years old. fox5's marina maracco is life at police headquarters with the very latest. what have they been able to tell you. >>reporter: right now, shawn, still no arrest in the the case. we don't know if there was one sh
12:38 am
behind this double shooting. a 17 year old, however, is dead tonight following that double shooting and teachers on the scene say that this young man attended anacostia senior high school last year, was a sophomore, but it's unclear why he was not in school today. it was the middle of the day, two in the afternoon as police responded to the shooting just down the street that very high school, a second shooting took place about a block away from the initial scene. an adult man delivering pizzas was struck in the leg and investigators believe at this point that both shootings connected. we spoke with the young victims' former high school teacher who showed up to the scene immediately after learning the teen had been shot. a very nice kid, very laid back, very jovial. he has a lot of humor. very fun initial easygoing kid. i think that
12:39 am
deserve an opportunity to grow old. i think that the things that are taking place in the community started way before them. sometimes they don't necessarily know what they're even involved n. as the violence continues in southeast, local actaviss are hoping with the change of guard as chief lanier exits and as the new chief comes into play in the district they hope that planes clothes officers who they believe had a pulse on the community, especially the high crime area will come bass as well. talions for whatever reason why they have topped it and refused to resume, remember suit the advise squad is beyond me. a man needs to understand that these shootings should not be to l rated and accepted in our community at no time, day or night. police have yet to officially release the identity of the teenager. it is now the 9 #st homicid
12:40 am
life outside mpd headquarters. > here we are september 1, 2016, 91st homicide. where does this compare to where we stood last year in terms of homed side. >> i have not checked the numbers tonight. but we were were about nine to ten homicides of on. we saw a drastic increase from 2014 into 2015 so still these numbers now in 206, where we are now were way higher than what when there are back in 2014, 2013 and 2012. definitely a spike in the homicide numbers. > marina maracco, thank you. > montgomery county police tonight are out in full force in rockville looking for drunk drivers. the di check point is in honor of officer noaa lee on the a. a drunk driver hit and killed the officer at a check point last december. they recently signed noaa's
12:41 am
expansion of the interlocks. they require them to pass a breathe lieser before they can start the cars. officer lee owed a's father spoke to the officers tonight before they headed out to the check point. >> noaa recognized that the way to really stop drunk drivers, the three's are enforcement, enforcement and enforcement. by having a check point that is a primary way of enforcing. it actually reduces drunk driving by 20 percent. basically through deterrence, through catching undetected drunk drivers and reminding people not to drink and drive. > noaa's law goes into effect october 1. the rhode island avenue metro station shutdown t early tonight for the second night in a row. the closures happened after pieces of concrete fell from the ceiling. the situation will be shutdown all day tomorrow for
12:42 am
inspections. metro says there doesn't appear to be a structural problem inside the station. although as we said this also happened yesterday. trains started bypassing the station around 6 tonight with shuttle buses taking people where they needed to go. no one was hurt by the falling debris. the same thing happened around 8:30 last night. debris fell from the station's mezzanine area. > straight ahead at 11, students hit by cars on the way home from school. we're getting a look at the frightening moments tonight showing the
12:43 am
12:44 am
12:45 am
new tonight, disturbing video of cars hitting students on their way to school. we want to warn you this video is real and it is graphic. the independent school district in texas release this video to show the dangers whentudents face when drivers do not follow the rules. one child hit at a bus stop, the other near a crosswalk. amazingly police say both children only minor injuries. cameras mounted on the bus' stop arms recorded these incidents. back here at home montgomery county public schools added similar cameras to am of
12:46 am
school buses. police are warning drivers to stop when those buses are stopped and also asking parents to talk to their kids about triple checking before crossing even when they have the right away. while we're tracking hurricane hermine we thought we'd take you down memory lane. seven monthsing a we were in the middle of abelias area. tonight we're learning how much the feds will pitch in to clean up the cost of the blizzard. # $25.4 million. governor hogan e-mails repairs to be about p $34 million. school will start before labor day now. i'm totally joking. we need to make a little extra money there. it's quite a contrast to what we're talking tonight. showing pictures from places like panama
12:47 am
coast, i spent a lot of time down there when i was covering hurricanes for good morning america. i brings back memories. i have to admit this is the kind of scenario where we would be out shooting the landfall and get up in the morning and show what had happened overnight. tony, if you'd like to go. i have to say, tony, i totally know what you're talking about. i've been obsessively looking at pictures all night. i went to hurricane better that in 1996. you would have been down there in 2005 which is the year we ran out of names. we lad to go to the greg alphabet. remember that? there are incredible acts of nature. they're quite beautiful because what they're didding is cooling the planet, but unfortunately because the planet is filled up when they come to shore they could make a about it of a mess. tonight a new season began, it is september 1 and
12:48 am
meteorological autumn runs through september, october and november. tomorrow looks so nice. get out and enjoy it. at the bus stop 58 to 69. a cool start. after school, 75 to 84. a beautiful day and we're not expecting any showers. i know there's still a few out there tonight which we'll look at. they'll be long gone by morning. look at these temperatures, 70 to 73, a bit humid. breaking up, do you see how it was not able to get into washington because the boss would not let that happen. that is pretty impressive that bruce springsteen controls the weather like that. i wish the boss can do something like that down in april latch yeah bay. panama city where we saw our life shot just on the edge of it. we are
12:49 am
a city with a lot of trees and a lot of flooding expected in apalachicola bay as well. finding some pretty strong winds at 104 miles per hour and that's on the east side of the hurricane. as it comes ashore and we did look at this tract just a little bit ago, the good news is while it's not great news for places like charleston and the places right along the coast it is a better scenario for our area. the only unfortunate thing is it kind of hangs around for a while and so there is some uncertainty that it may still be out here for the weekend. far enough from the coast that while you get some conditions, maybe not as bad as it could have been, but i would still be very careful if you're going to the beaches, but impact locally may be improved on this kind of track if it does change. tropical storm watches willest up for the beaches. if that gets changes things are going downhill. based on this track the effect will be better for our
12:50 am
maybe less rain, maybe no rain in some spots. there will certainly be stuff at the coast and some clouds east of the bay for starters. i'm going to remind you that that track is still changed and i want to show you this futurecast. we're going oning to take you forward because this is improved from what we saw at 10:00. the heaviest rain in earn north carolina. by 7:00 a.m. friday it doesn't get quite do d.c. and certainly doesn't get to the western suburbs. we may not get as much room, is it possible that we're going to get a decent weekend out of this with not that much rain? it is possible. we're going to wrap it up with a seven day forecast that still has rain on here, but based on tonight's track and some of the things we're seeing you may see a noticeable improvement in this tomorrow. we haven't given up on
