5:32 am
mile an hour range that we had yesterday. 37 degrees in philadelphia, reading, lancaster, trenton, 31 in mount pocono. so it could be slippery on untreated surfaces up there. 40 degrees down in wildwood where there is still an experience of some flooding. weather by the numbers, it is a four today. we've got temperatures probably upper 30's throughout the morning and a few showers, this evening, and a high temperature of 42 degrees. the sun really will come out at some point and we will tell you when, coming up, bob kelly >> sueby, good morning. late opening and delays are scrolling across the bottom of our screen and right at bottom of our screen here do you think you are having a rough go. this fellow kissing the concrete barrier westbound on the schuylkill expressway just west of conshohocken, and again, an example of what is happening when the speeds get too high and not respecting what mother nature. we're dealing with left overs. the roads are still wet, puddles, ponding, tea brings
5:33 am
every where, that is one example. here's ben franklin bridge where it is not raining as heavily or wind isn't as strong as yesterday but we're still dealing with almost like a lower gear then we had this time yesterday. down the shore in cape may, portions of the white horse pike, black horse pike, route nine from lbi all the way down to the tip of cape may portions of the roadway are closed because of flooding, high water, and of course we are getting ready for high tide, do not drive through high water that you may see there this morning. new jersey transit has three bus routes on the detour because of the high water, septa's airport regional rail line running with delays, so far, so good on patco, amtrak, acela, service restored, we had that down wire situation yesterday, and then again i think we're all going to be late for the office this morning. westbound lanes of 70 remain closed at cropwell road use old marlton pike, turnpike connector bridge remains closed. remember that is because of the crack in the steel beam
5:34 am
that happened on friday from pennsylvania your alternates route one north if you can take trenton morrisville bridge or scudder falls, for locals they can still use burlington bristol from new jersey exit at 7a for 195 and if you exit at number five that is mount holly, use burlington bristol. exit at number four route 73, that will take you to the tacony palmyra, karen, back over to you. we still have those wind gusts out there and 20-mile an hour range, you still have a lot of flooding out there and down lines and wires. so we have lauren johnson who will be at road closure in cherry hill but we will start with a lot of flooding right now with steve keeley in atlantic city, steve? >> reporter: all right, karen this is where we were yesterday morning, 23 hours ago, main avenue right next to the famous high rise time share called flagship and you're looking at sea wall they are still constructing
5:35 am
and watch as waves pound that thing. do you see how high up that goes, it goes above the streetlights, so that is two stories, plus and you can really hear when those waves hit that sea wall and you can see it is a strong new sea wall because you hear that water, pounding against there and it makes and loud noise and big splash. so a lot of that sea water as it hits the sea wall then goes over the sea wall and on to main avenue and on to the street. this is one of the session places for sight seers here at the shore and all of the locals come down here and you can still see the elevated road, there is dry spots in the middle of the road but we are still staying high and dry or at least trying to to give you these pictures here, as high tide is hitting and high tide waves are hitting that sea wall, so rough going for day two here at the shore but not as windy, not as rainy, but certainly, still being big
5:36 am
trouble for the morning rush hour on both the main road, out of atlantic city like black horse pike and white horse pike and local roads that we keep showing you have half an hour as we drive around town a lot of the water still in the streets and this water is likely to get teacher within the next high tide since yesterday's two high tides really never went back out because of those northeast winds kept water, close in, and it never got the a chance to recede like it normally would, karen. >> steve, thank you. we have water on the streets there. in other communities we have tree limbs and wires down on top of them. our team coverage continues. lets get the over to cherry hill right thousand where we have lauren johnson with the problem there, lauren? >> reporter: good morning to you, karen. last update the we got last night from pse and g crews they said crews will be working throughout the night and that they are, they are out here at this hour trying to restore power, and we're right here on route 70 in cherry hill, last night their averaging were down to 400
