bet go, right to set septa.org, find your bus route, make sure that that's back on line, so, things will sprinkle and slowly come back to normal, as we roll through the start of our morning rush hour, going to be a rough one, thomas, car glenn it will take a minute. time 403 power outages certainly major problem this morning. look at this video, even sparking power line fires there is was take never bridgewater, new jersey, people that liver in the area we're -- were told to take shelter the storm made its way through, for good reason, never know what's going to happen. good news, encourage, no one injured. >> much of our staff maybe you at home have lost power, pse&g reporting we have more than 100,000 people without power in new jersey, ac electric, we've got about 8,000 folks in the dark. in pennsylvania, peco says, it is more than 59,000 people without power.& take our word for t people without power in bucks and all over the entire area, we'll keep track of the latest
numbers because there are so many of you have dealing with a lot of problems. let's head back to new jersey, hit hard by the storm. steve keeley in moorestown, pretty rough going trying to get out this morning, right, me? >> reporter: i had a rough go coming home, my normal commute for 20 minutes, three and a half hours, nearly ran out of gas, and i left work with more than a half tank. that tells you how much i was sitting in traffic. and the bigger vehicles going, which you don't even notice on normal basis, little inclines, like the betsy ross bridge, if you weren't going at least 15 miles per hour, you would get stuck, the delaware memorial bridge, people stuck thon for hours, apparently yesterday, and then, on route 130, when you finally got off the bridge there is inch incline you barely ever noticed three big vehicles stuck and that's why it wasn't going anywhere. one of the vehicles somebody's caring this big long cigarette-type speed boat you would see on miami vice, they pick a blizzard to decide there is the day i want to transport this big boat.
and then a plow even stuck. and then the amazing irony of all irony is watching people get out of their cars with their little shovels trying to dig out a big plow truck that was supposed to be clearing the road for the people with the shovels. it was great to see teamwork moving trees, because nobody was going to move a tree, i'm on the main drag in moorestown, finally get off 130, a tree is across the road, karen, i just saw this morning, you are asking if i'm okay. yes, obviously i am, thank you for urine choir i. it was unreal. then i see everybody just picks up the tree and slides it off the road. but you can see, here is the main drag, here is the yellow line. bob kelly pay attention, listen to there is they don't want you going down chester avenue/river road where it changes to where the high school is. they have cones, barricades across, further up you see why. there are trees and power lines down here on the main road, and so if they're still here unattended on the main road, it tells you how the back roads are, e-mail back and forth with kathy orr, her
kids' schools are closed moorestown friends schools are closed up the spree, we're on the high school street, bridgeboro road, you can see why schools are closed half of the pse&g power outages, burlington county last guy i talked to, who was trying to get power back on, 45,000, just in this county alone, and yet you see tree, people trying to drive around. here we will walk over here a bit here, why it is safe, and show you, we talked about these pine trees. and i've lived here for 15 years, the pine trees i thought were completely devastated, but apparently still left standing, and they came crashing down here, look at this telephone pole. this was the sticky snow we talked b look, snow sticking all the way up the lent of the pole. sticking on the power lines. and the guys i talked to from pse&g said you didn't even need trees to hit the power lines. you can see the snow and the ice sticking to the lines, right across in front of our truck. just the snow and the ice we'll was bringing down power lines, so, just devestation where ever you are, the police here in moorestown, tell me,
the roads mostly still impassable, normal big plow trucks i saw did not see during the storm, so they must be busy maybe on the highways like 38. so trouble everywhere, and here is a guy coming up the street here. you got to seep, you got to go slow. he'll make a right. but you can't go around here, it is a one way street right now. again this is the main drag to 130 and then to places like route 38 and the jersey turnpike. so, it is going to be a rough day. sorry to take up all of this time. we will go venture further down toward 38 see what we see. but that gives awe sense from one town how bad this storm was, real devastate errr. >> completely. so glad you made it home. i was looking at your tweets yelling and following the journey backwards, hope you got home safely. we hope most people did, as well. let's get to jenny joyce, we hop across to bucks county and see what the scene is there, jenny? >> reporter: good morning, karen, so the street light behind me here at street and hulmeville roads, the only light on, on this stretch of
roadway, that is because all of the power is out. so other than that, the strip malls, the wawa behind me, the mickey d's, right across the road, are in the dark this morning. peco is reporting roughly 50,000 outages in bucks county alone. last night, chris o'connell was with the vague a family of bensalem, each member of that clan was taking turns to charge cell phones outside in the family truck. and of course, clear the driveway of all of the snow. last night the i-95 off ramp to street road was shut down after a tractor-trailer got stuck. we saw multiple vehicles stuck in the snow, wheels spinning, until help arrived. it even happened to our news van, chris o'connell, and photographer dave say they'd just helped a woman push her vehicle out of the snow when they got stuck. they got locked in place for roughly two hours before a group of guys helped to shovel them out. and they weren't alone. >> it was a chain reaction up here, i have single axle
tractor, so i'm stuck, waiting ton wrecker, the guy behind me is waiting on a wrecker. >> this storm right away, when i started hearing branches falling, that start today make me nervous. we have kerosene heaters. i think we'll be okay. and then candles, so maybe some board games. >> plows worked through the night to clear the snow off the roads ahead of the re-freeze, and our drive up here, up 95, to get to bensalem, was very good, main roads clear, the side roads and the dark roads that you need to be careful of. just passing us by during the live report, mini-van went with about 4 inches of snow on its rooftop. that's a reminder headed out this morning, be sure to brush all of the snow, because just going to snack another driver right in the windshieldment back to you guys. >> good advice, jenny, thank you. over to camden county right now in new jersey, say a tree that came down, this is across partridge lane, in cherry hill, so obviously people came out there, they did what they could to warn other drivers, put up cones
and such. >> it is a good thing it didn't fall on our house, but i regret it is blocking the street. so i just don't want anybody to be hurt. >> all over the place, no matter where you live, and obviously we'll worry about the commute on the way in, all of the slush has frozen back up once again. >> of course danger caused by yesterday's snowstorm still being felt this morning. caution. it says it right there. the sidewalk around the lowe's hotel on market street, it was taped off, off limit, all because of falling ice. caution tape, signs out, there police lights, put up overnight to warn people, walking nearby. yesterday a lot of you told us you heard under this he snow. it is pretty cool. it is just like with a thunderstorm except for rain. you have the snow. so watch our dawn timoney live in hamilton township mercer county when it errupted. >> there it is again. >> oh, my goodness, can you hear that? did you guys hear it? >> we did. wow.

we had all of the rising tides right there. so lot of problems down in ocean city, as well. >> of course things are slowly getting back to normal for public transportation, bob mentioned this, all septa regional rail trains will operate on regular weekday schedule. that goes for the broad street and market frankford lines, as well, however, some bus routes may still be impacted by the weather. >> new jersey transit bus service resumed just few minutes ago here at 4:00 a.m. it is rail service also getting back to normal, including trains on the northeast corridor and north jersey coast. amtrak, by the way, is suspended until 10:00 this morning, because of wire problems. >> and if you want to see the very latest happening, we have a weather app that you can download, it has excellent radar on it, so you can download that and get all of the latest information. >> time now 4:12, advancements and screening for breast cancer. >> the fda has approved first at home breast cancer risk test, but obviously there are always some concerns.
daphodils wait to go bloom. some of us have had our daphodils start to come up already, 12 days until march the 20th, which will be the vernal equinox of 2018, 12:15 p.m. in the afternoon. let's look at impressive snowfall totals from yesterdayment looks like north jersey, bucks county, got a lot of the brunt of this. princeton township, 17.8 inches. richboro in bucks county got 16 inches. broomall in delco, a foot of snow. bryn mawr, just aunt foot. cherry hill with 8.5. at philadelphia international airport, measuring 6.1 inches of snow, as far as garnet valley 11.8, doylestown with a little over 10 inches, moorestown, new jersey, with 8 . so, there is our storm from yesterday. it is up in new england, now, and it is pounding places like vermont, new hampshire, massachusetts, connecticut and rhode island getting some snow from that. we are not, so we can be largely precipitation-free for today. look ahead to some
sunshine as we try to dig out. and the good part about a march storm, as opposed to, say, december storm, is that the daylight hours are longer, so it is sort of accelerate the melting process. 35 degrees, so we're above freezing in philadelphia, wilmington, allentown, but we've got temperatures below freezing in a few places this morning, so watch out for slippery spots because of all of the snow that fell yesterday. 10-mile per hour wind, means that it feels like it is 27 in philadelphia. and all of our windchills are in the 20's this morning, so keep that in mind, as you're selecting your outerwear today. 43 degrees should be our high. so it will be kind of cold throughout the afternoon. and about 43 tomorrow, as well, mid four's for saturday, bunch of sunny days ahead. we start out with sunshine sunday. and then the possibility of another coastal storm, i know, i know, on monday, this one's going to start in the gulf of mexico, and makes it way off the coast, nothing to show you
on radar or anything yet, because it all has yet to happen. but want to give you little preview of possible coming attractions, bob kelly. >> can we lure it with maybe little umbrella drink? >> i could be bribes, bob kelly, i could be bribed. >> good morning, everybody, 4:18. here looks like mother nature took a slurpee, and through right there in the middle of the intersection, route 309, and 202. that's probably the best easy example i can give you. what the roads are looking like this morning. we're all recovering, slower than normal this morning careful if it is not iced over, it can send you slipping and sliding. further south you go, down here in delaware, just wet roadways. so that's good. as you come up and down the i-95 corridor there, downtown philly we go. looking good on the vine street expressway. but expect any of the off ramps, would maybe be two lanes, maybe down to one and a half. race street, for example, right by the mint there, instead of the two lanes you're down it only one lane to make the turnment and
that's going to cause some back-ups today until we kinds of get everything manicured and all of the snow totally off to the side. best way to go, the market frankford, broad street subway, running trains through the overnight. that's the big work horse for septa. residual concellations from yesterday could be waiting for you at the airport. check with the airline, all of the delays and concellations from yesterday, want to make sure your flights here, so as you're ready to go when you get down there. again, check with the airline before you head down. amtrak service still suspended until at least 10:00 between new york and boston. thomas and karen, back over to you. >> we will get there. time now 4:19. let's look at other stories we're following right now, still developing, arrest has been made in a hit-and-run in mayfair, that left three year old girl in critical condition. thirty-one year old zachary lawyer facing charges of hit-and-run. investigators say he drove on to the sidewalk, hitting a mom and her two children. police say he ran from the scene, leaving the three year
old pinned right under his car. now, residents, they returned in, they managed to lift it off of her. the mom was hurt and doing okay this morning, the other child not injured. he is facing several charges including aggravated assault with a dui. >> in lehigh county the mayor of allentown, ed pulaski may not be the mayor very long, could be resigning as soon as today. one week after a jury found him guilty of 47 felony counts. the morning call is now reporting that he met with the city council president, roger maclean on tuesday, to discuss preparation. now, maclean would only serve as the acting mayor at the time of pulaski ski. charged, no sentencing date has been set. >> the accused florida shooter is formally charged with 17 counts of first degree murder. a grand jury also indicted nicholas cruz on 17 counts of attempted murder, for the valentine mass shooting at march or marjorie stoneman douglas high school.
the mother who took him into his heff testified yesterday. still don't have any answers. cruz's public defender has said i'll plead guilty if prosecutors take the death penalty off the table. a porn star who said she had relations with the president is filing a lawsuit against him saying that she would like to speak now and set the record straight. this alleged affair between stormy daniels and the president took place reportedly between 2006 and 2007. she would like a confidential al at this agreement about that torn up, saying, the president never signed it. he denies the allegations. and says he wasn't aware that his attorney, private attorney, paid her $130,000. so this is beyond just the salacious headlines, it is about what those payments could mean and the timing of the election, much more on that. >> all right, so we've got a lot of problems as you're waking up, depends on which road you're traveling in, depending how it will be for you. lots of problems in delaware count. >> i all across the area, some icing as well, let's take a live look, reading good

towns in south jersey, wires are down everywhere, we're right in front of the township hall and the police building, they have emergency power, the only place you will see lights. here is mt. laurel road and walt whitman avenue. you can see the houses closest to us, even in the dark, maybe you can make out the houses are completely dark. mouth laurel lights out all over the place, traffic light intersection and to the left of us where mt. laurel road goes over the new jersey turnpike. you can see the traffic zooming by, see some lights going through the trees, and that's the jersey turnpike, and that's the only place you'll see some lights as they flutter through the trees, so you can see how busy the turnpike; to the left of us, the library won't be used and the schools are closed. updates from the local police department, and bob the roads are a mess. just here in this town alone, church road shutdown, around country club parkway.
hartford road between marne highway and the entrance to the college, wires down blocking the road, that road is closed. elbow lane, another main drag through town, closed. so, the wires are down, and the guys that fixed them are so busy, they're not going to get to the wires for awhile, which means power is not going to be restored for awhile. and you can bet they want to get to everybody as fast as possible, but utter devestation that people may not be waking to up but up all night trying to figure out how to stay warm in the air. sue serio it, may be above freezing, that may be good thing for melting but let me warn everybody, it is cents a bad thing for this reason. when you walk on, we got 8 inches every snow in moorestown, for instance, when i was walking in my driveway, or in my yard, you walk on what you think is snow, and then pretty soon your feet are more than ankle deep in soaking wet slush. so be sure rubber boots are with the fashion today for sure.
you don't want to start your day with soaking wet feet. that's what you will have all over the place, snow deceptive, snow on top, sloppy wet slush underneath, so watch it, especially, when you're in a spot like moorestown and mt. laurel that got nearly foot of snow, chances are most of that foot is all slush. so, you have been warned, guys. >> let's see what it is like in bucks county right now. >> jenny joyce standing by. good morning, jenny, to you. >> reporter: good morning, guys, so even after a storm, we always have something to be thankful for, right? so what we're thankful for this morning is a back-up generator powering the power light at hulmeville road, and street road, without that generator, this would not be an easy intersection to manage. a large strip of businesses here on the block, are in the dark, and there is no telling when the lights will be back on you can see cars already moving, starting to see some
people headed out to work, people reporting 50,000 outages in bucks county. each member of this clan was taking turn to charge cell phones outside in the family truck and of course clear the driveway of the snow. last night, the i95 off ramp to street road was shut down after a tractor-trailer got stuck we saw multiple vehicles spinning, help arrived, even happened to our news van. photographer dave ice on said they were locked in place for two hours before a group of guys help to shove them out. plowed worked through the night to clear the snow, ahead of the re-freeze. i want to tell you guys that's an absolute issue this morning, that re-freeze. so we're on blacktop here in one of the parking lot every a business that lost power, and photographer, poor jared, he steps out of the truck and starts slipping and sliding because it is dark, we don't have power, can't see. it is hard to see black ice anyway. so head the out this morning, don't have power, be extra
