5:00 am
pretty day today with a lot of sunshine. we had enough sun to get us to 95 degrees yesterday. before the thunderstorms hit. so steamy, then it was stormy, and we ended up being 10 degrees above average, and also, that made it an official heatwave. because that was our third day in a row of 90 degrees or above. planner for today cooler start than yesterday. we were already in the upper 70s, at this time, not as humid, 80 degrees by lunchtime. and about 86 or 87, so pretty nice afternoon in storm with your sunset still at 8:33. these days on either side of the first day of summer are the longest of the year. and this is one you can stay outside and enjoy, all the way up until sunset time. that's your wednesday forecast. now, we are getting closer to the weekend. and we've got some big weather changes coming up. we'll talk about them just ahead. bob kelly what a lot you have to tell us today. >> yes, good morning everybody, 5:00 o'clock straight up. it will be crazy morning rush hour. watch for obstacles rolling
5:01 am
out of the driveway, maybe just trash can lid, maybe downed tree, downed wires but respect the closures, that are in effect this morning, they are out there for a reason. the biggest problem this morning, is going to be for commuters who use mass transit. the patco high-speed line service suspended this morning, for at least through the morning rush hour. so no trains running this morning, on patco. here's the latest from septa. service suspended on the fox chase and media elwyn regional rail lines from ends to end. the paoli thorndale regional rail lines service only between malvern and the center city stations. the rest of the regional rail lines are operating, and again, expect some delays, especially, out of the gate for the first couple of trains this morning. norristown high-speed line, service suspended norristown over to radnor, best bet for the buses the trolleys go to click on system status button. you will be able to see if there is a detour related to your individual bus route throughout the neighborhoods. now, new jersey transit says
5:02 am
the ac rail line suspended that's the line that runs from philadelphia to atlantic city. new jersey transit buses are cross honoring tickets with that rail line. now, amtrak, regular service has resumed on the northeast corridor, expect some delays, especially, on the keystone line. that's the line that runs from philly out to harrisburg that was right in the bee line of the storm last night. they expect delays of about 45 minutes this morning. philly international, could be rough go this morning. a lot of planes were either canceled, or re-routed last night, during the height of the storm. so again check with the airline, because if that plane did not come in this morning or last night, it is not going to be therefore your departing flight this morning. soap check with the individual airline for your flight status. let's go to the neighborhoods lower merion, city avenue, at 71 street. some downed wires. also route 70, at springdale road downed wires. the 73 ramps to route 130 are blocked this morning. so again, a lot of leftovers
5:03 am
from last night so respect those closures that are out there this morning. the new jersey turnpike, they have speed restrictions, in play between exits number three, and two, there are numerous downed trees through that stretch the traffic lights are out steve's over here in south jersey this morning, along 42 at the black horse pike, and in all of the areas, chris lauren, where we have the power outages obviously the traffic lights are out it could be at major intersection, or minor intersection, but when the light are out that's a four way stop for everybody all around. chris, lauren, back to you. >> huge mess on our hands after bad, bad weather. team coverage this morning of the clean up effort. >> jennifer joyce live in delaware county. first steve keeley live in washington township new jersey. and just as bob said, steve power outage means traffic signals out you name it. >> reporter: boy, i am about as nervous as it gets. i'm so afraid i'm going to see something awful here. we're seeing some gridlock when these new jersey transit buses are pulling out of their
5:04 am
terminal. the only place with lights on, because they got power generators, humming real loud across the street here, but they're going to be extra busy. you heard bob say that. they are cross-honoring all of the train riders, no patco service, 4,000 people a day ride patco. so that's 20,000 more you figure, to work, and then another 20 home from work. so another 20,000 people either on a bus or in their car, adding to the traffic problems they're coming down route 70, where you said all of the traffic lights are out. so traffic light out here. what we have seen here is some real close or as george carlin would say near misses, but he would say that's not near miss, it is a near hit. people going 45 at least that's the speed limit here. people at a loft intersections, major intersections here on 42/black horse pike through washington township the biggest busiest, suburb in all of south jersey, and nobody is slowing down when they get to the traffic light. that's a problem. now, these new jersey transit buses a lot of them headed south toward atlantic city, they're stopping here, nobody's letting them in,
5:05 am
also headed southbound, so this bus will block all the lanes headed toward philly, and you're wait to go see if somebody will not see the side of the bus because there are no headlights on the side of the bus and please, stop, slow down, stop and see that bus, before you smash into the side of the bus as it is pulling out of the terminal. seeing a lot more busy conditioning conditions out here now that it is after 5:00 as opposed to 4:00 look at the headlights coming at us here. here is the other problem people as you drive. go to the left show them the shell station. no power out here. so all of the gas stations aren't working because the pumps run on electricity. so a lot of people are running out of gas likely, because they can't get gas at their normal symptoms. the one station steaks that was open had half mile long line probably because they had emergency generators. whole host of problems because the storm is 12 hours old there are still fresh problems that you are dealing with, and fresh dangers you're dealing w look at the poor guy probably drove a bus all night.
5:06 am
now he can't get across to get home because of all of the traffic. nobody letting anybody in. you can see all of the traffic. he has to be very patient. take it easy out there. we got little sunlight coming. that will will hopefully help visibility. now we go for some of the damage reports to jenny joyce where she is out in the philly suburbs. >> reporter: thanks, steve, in as ten delaware county, you were mentioning thankfully the sun is slowly coming up because all the way here we were on some main roads that didn't have any traffic lights. we saw live wires, right across, we were up very, very close to those wires not knowing, they just kind of creep up on you out of no where. you can't see anything. you can't see where you are going, lot of trees down, like the one here behind me, take a look at that deep root. that extended all the way down this block eventually coming down to where the cars are. thankfully, didn't hit any houses. but did hit some of these vehicles on this other side where the leaves just completely covering the trees with the branches, over these
5:07 am
cars, and also, if we take a look up a little bit higher, you can see where the actual trees snap. into is similar to what we have been seeing throughout the area, even last night we were in the brookhaven area. which is neighboring town, where we saw not only trees down not only power lines down but also, various accessories, backyards, like grills, pool covers strewn across yards, even one of our executive producers lives in this area, he was posting some pictures on twitter and facebook of some swings that are in the side yard, completely apart and flipped over, as the wind speeds reached roughly 70 miles an hour in this area. and, as many neighborhoods are, completely in the dark, 95,000 power outages in delaware county, alone. chris, lauren? >> all right jennifer, thank you. >> and this was the scene along akron street where half dozen trees came down.

5:36 am
because you have the new jersey transit bus depo here with buses coming out as you see, every few seconds, and more buses than usual because these buses are replacing what you talk about bob no train service down to the shore no patco service so maybe more people riding more buses. but look what these bus drivers have to do. they have to wait for traffic to clear both ways, sometimes they'll go across the northbound lanes and then just sit there and cause a little bit of gridlockment look at this this guy is nice enough to stop. but watch. nobody else is stopping. so the guy if the silver pick up symptoms, he knows the lights are out but everybody will just keep going through and this poor bus driver, job stressful enough look at him inning across the black horse pike people do 50 miles an hour and thank god those people stop going the opposite way. here comes the guy in the left lane, finally jams on his brakes. so it looks line every man for himself. every drive for himself. every woman for himself. very dangerous out here with all of the light out. police are judge tuesday busy it, put the cones out to pro
