5:02 am
>> cheltenham. >> anyway, i went with a seven. i might go back to the six. it the is wet out there this morning and are foggy but i don't think balance of the the day will be quite as stormy as what we had yesterday. having said that we have storms in the the forecast for this afternoon. an area of rain moving through berks, lancaster county at the moment. some rain, mostly in new jersey and delaware right new to the south of us, here in philadelphia just a stray rain drop here or there. and then in the southern two counties of delaware and headed toward jersey shore another area of rain. 61 degrees with a mere 7-mile an hour win. but that will help with the fog. 93 percent relative humidity at 5:43 sun rise time. visibility in the so good in wildwood millville philadelphia, we're not even great with the visibility, two and a half miles. reduced visibility in lancaster, fog any pottstown
5:03 am
and higher elevations of mount pocono as well as trenton. pretty much where ever you travel this morning you will run into fog in your journey. 83 degrees today warm, humid with scattered thunderstorms after this round of rain is over. we will get a break and then evening thunderstorms will finally dissipate and we will get some clearing with the low of 59 degrees. we will tell you what happens after that in the seven day forecast which will take us through bob kelly the entire holiday weekend. >> 5:03. that fog will slow us down, road are wet the from the rain on the overnight beginning your trip in south jersey here some fog along 42 and 55, but a shut down right now on the new jersey turnpike. here's the deal an accident following two tractor trailers one of which caught fire a bus and a passenger vehicle all north bound approaching exit number two. so all of the northbound lanes are block right now, i just talk to the turnpike and they say they could be with us for
5:04 am
most of the morning and they have to hand off load the portions office tractor trailer. all traffic heading north bound or coming over that delaware memorial bridge forced to use i295. so at least we have a good alternate here this morning but if you use 295 to begin with we'll some extra volume ride ago long side of you heading north bound up in to north jersey. traffic light out in the busy intersection, boulevard and bustleton where levick and robbins all that comes together. you want to use harbison or devereaux to gain access and cross the boulevard through the neighborhoods this morning. that could be a while. we have to get crew to hit that reset button. day number two of travel between philadelphia and trenton. yesterday was a rough one i think things will be smoother this morning. trenton, and the acela express on amtrak running on time with the full schedule, this
5:05 am
morning. and we will probably see fog delays at philly international. do check with the airline and give yourself some extra time if you tend to fly today, chris and lauren, back to you. philadelphia police say that they are hospitalized after being piss top whipped during a robbery last night this happened on champlost street around 11:45 last night. medics took the victim, who was hit on the head, to the hospital in stable condition. an investigators are trying to figure out identity of the victim murdered just before midnight in west philadelphia they say a 20 something year-old man was shot 18 times on the 1300 block of conestoga. police say they found a semiautomatic gun in an unlock buick suv park right near the man's body. because the victim was not the carrying id police are not sure hoe is. today is the day the people of philadelphia will choose their new mayoral candidate. >> fox 29's steve keeley live at ate polling location in mt. airy where the lines are really long, right steve.
5:06 am
>> reporter: we did have an election already for you viewers just joining us a half an hour ago we had a one man one vote election and chris movie any a landslide elect for me never to wear a rain coat again, even though this fog is more like a rain out here. i can see rain drops between me and the camera. can you make that out at home or in the studio. >> that is the old gully washer there downpour. >> reporter: making sure that is there for to you wear. >> was it bright white it was brightest white i have ever seen. >> reporter: it is white, it is not memorial day. sue serio gave me a pass thaw can wear white. i had matching white hughes but decided they wouldn't work good with the black shoes on election day. >> color blocking if you did that. >> this is what we do, two hearst before the polling opens, folks, if you are watching and wondering what
5:07 am
we're talking about. yeah, long lines here, this is reminiscent of the seven's when springsteen would a announce ticket sales at the spectrum. similar scene. long lines shoving pushing. you can probably not see it all completely through the fog but believe me there is screaming, cursing and all kind of shoving and elbowing as people jockey for position number one as soon as the doors opened here in mt. airy a at this polling place today. that is what we will talk about as we joke about turnout, it is going to turnout that only 10 percent of the people will vote. 10 percent of this city will elect the leader of this city for the next four years. people wonder is that right? david thornberg the great governor of the committee of 70 talk about how turnout is so low and how maybe we should start thinking about doing what other cities like chicago just did earlier this year and if in of these six candidates get an overwhelming majority usually 50 percent
5:08 am
plus one if nobody gets half of the hundred thousand votes maybe we should have a second run off election almost like a match race and see eerie lex where we can see two people going head to head and then really, see the the issues around them. here's mr. thornberg talking about that possibility. >> i'm intrigued and i think it deserves much further exploration of various kind of run offs that we see around the the country. chicago has had one for 16 years where you have a primary, it is a non-partisan primary too. it doesn't matter when are republican or democrat you just vote for the candidates and if the winning candidate doesn't get at least 50 percent, doesn't have to go to run off which is what happened this past spring with marry manual. there are other sit that is have run offs there. i think what we have to realize is there is lots the of different ways to make choices like this and given the situation we're in now the
5:09 am
numbers that we talk about i think that tea serves a good look. >> reporter: by the way some great viewer watching who will go nameless sent me a poll after they heard me say last week when they current candidates were fighting whether to keep commissioner ramsey. these guys should be luck that i commissioner ram i is didn't run for election because based on what i sianni hear in the community and talk to the real people that do vote, mr. ramsey, one of my favorite people in the world i make no apologies for that. he is a a great guy. people in philly are lucky to have him. he would win in a landslide. polls show he is mess popular person of everybody. 78 percent favor built rating. nobody else is enclose. he blows away ed rendell current mayor nutter, school superintendent and all of these candidates combined and high regard from white men and black women the most. so he is a cross section of respect in this city. so commissioner ramsey ever want to be mayor he said the word, and he is looking at a landslide win. the people don't think he
5:10 am
should be the police commissioner are elect are lucky he is in the running begins them today good here's an idea continue on crease voter turnout, you serio my collogue here, had this idea, why not let people who pay the city wage tax and live out identify the sit have a chance to vote. we pay the tax in the city of philadelphia, what do you think of that steve. >> reporter: they pay a parking tax and city wage tax if you buy something city sales tax a lieutenant of suburban people, even folks from philadelphia and delaware pay taxes here in the city of philadelphia if they voted we would have a higher turnout for sure. >> thanks, steve. switching gears at 5:10. today marks one week since the deadly amtrak derailment that killed eight people in port richmond. ntsb is unsure if something hit that train moments before the crash but they are in the ruling anything out this say the the transportation agency officials that projectiles are a big problem and common one
5:11 am
at that for trains. fox 29's jennifer joyce looking into that from port richmond, good morning to you jen. >> reporter: good morning. biggest question right now why is did that train speed up in the final 60 seconds prior to the derailment and it could take a year to find out what happened there. ntsb is looking into other factors that came into play. fbi ruled out gunfire hitting windshield of the train but federal investigators are trying to figure out whether a septa being throwing incident on amtrak's own track moments earlier had anything to do with the derailment. the the ntsb says windshield of train 188 may have been struck, in the just once but twice. people who lived by the tracks say they see kid throwing rocks at trains despite fencing, chris o'connell found open access to the track broken fences, gaping holes or no fence at all. septa chief tom nestle addressed the security issues
5:12 am
yesterday. >> are fences going to be deif thed, or our method going to be defeat todd keep a met evacuated person from going in there. yes, they will. is there a persist tell? no. is septa committed and always working and insuring that the fence line is in place and secure? yes. if people see a fence line that isn't we'd like to know bit. >> i see kid playing every day around on this place throwing rocks to trains. >> when we get the calls from the engineer there is an a active event occurring by the time we get there and philadelphia police or amtrak get there the kid are gone. they throw roxanne they leave. it is difficult to get a handle on it. >> reporter: automatic train controls were installed on the tracks prior to service resuming yesterday. that system will ensure that trains go the proper speed limit around the curve. additionally is there talk about installing cars. five years ago federal accident investigating required video cameras to record and engineer's action but that didn't happen.
5:13 am
investigating this crash they have the black box recording but that only shows what the controls did not what the operator did leading up to the crash, chris and lauren. >> a lot of questions remain unanswered jennifer, thank you. as our average continues right new on line at my fox we will have the latest information and images right there on the home page. 5:13. police arrested a man for kidnapping and rape of the woman in fishtown. >> twenty-four year-old an manual centron was arrested yesterday. investigators say he assaulted a 22-year old woman earlier this month as she was walking in the 2200 block of east york street. they say he pointed a gun at her, forced her into a reek will and then sexually assaulted her. right now police looking for a burglar who targeted business in south philadelphia a police say in ten days the same guy robbed a cell phone store, pizza a shop and bakery and made off with cash, goods and caused damage busting into those businesses. if you have any information you are asked to call police.
5:14 am

5:17 am
cart. my driving is very consistent. >> runyan, doesn't stretch. >> lets see what you are made of right now. >> i am i'm getting more knocked needed as i age. >> do you know where that went. >> where. >> left in the trees good we had so much fun. we raise add lot of money for alzheimer's research at the trump national golf course in pine hill. that is one of the gentlemen we played with. >> good thing did you this yesterday because today is a little icy outside. >> it was humid hot sunny and then by the the afternoon it got kind of foggy and cool. >> right, we had a couple of systems that we're dealing with. so what you had yesterday was this cold front and now we have a warm front making its way through right now. we will stay on the warm side even though it was cooler this morning then it was yesterday
5:18 am
at this time soon to be filled bay a cold front. little complicated right new but that is what is going on. out to the west we thought we would show so snow. no matter how bad it gets you don't to have deal with the snow they have in colorado. for us, it is rain around. not everybody is getting it the right new but it is damp out there and it is foggy just about every where. we have downpours between border of lancaster, berks county reading getting some rain at the moment. really light showers around philadelphia area across the river in salem county and gloucester county we do have a few stray showers, and there is some rain, from delaware that is starting to move into the southern tip of cape may county. cape may wildwood, we are seeing light rain at the moment as well. all that continues through about 6:00, 6:30 and then we will get a break in the action. brief one. because anytime after one or 2:00 in the afternoon, cold front comes through and that could touch off a few pop up then are storms, probably not

5:20 am
around 25 miles an hour tomorrow but that will not mar our enthusiasm for spring fling in media for all day on wednesday, morning and evening. 68 degrees is all we will manage on thursday and then warming up for the holiday weekend. fur getaway day is friday, it would be fine. 76 degrees. cooler on saturday. seventy-three. seventy-seven on sunday. mid to upper 70's on monday with a chance of the pop up then are storm. so all and all the weekend forecast is good but not looking real good out there right now bob kelly on our road. >> tough to see out there. >> 5:20. live look at bennie coming into philadelphia an example mid span very visit. we have patco high speed line train making its first trip across the river into philadelphia. owe again be ready, leave extra wiggle room where that poor visibility comes up on you fast like out here in chester county. the whole 202 corridor from west chester all the way up through king of prussia socked in with some fog. we're closed on the new jersey
