that would have flagged 73 workers. those employees including airline worker, airport vendors and others who all had access to security areas at commercial airports. the investigating process of airport employees was found by this report to be, quote, generally effective but the homeland security department inspector general found major holes in tsa employee records. 75,000 immigrant workers were found with no passport numbers. 85,000 with no social security numbers. the report comes just one week after undercover agents were able to smuggle fake bombs through airport security 95% of the time. what could be most troubling about this report is we don't know how dangerous these 73 workers actually were because that part of the report is redacted. i'll let you know what tsa's next move is coming up in the next half-hour. we're live at reagan national
airport, delia goncalves, wusa9. more warning signs about speed and a second amtrak crew member at the helm. those are just some of the recommendations offered aimed at preventing another deadly derailment like the one in philadelphia. the recommendations coming from the federal railroad administration. railroad operators are also being told to adjust their automatic train control safety systems in areas where there are sharp curves. metro ises being urged to make some major changes in the wake of the tragedy in january at the l'enfant plaza station. the national transportation safety board says it found several spots where cable connectors were missing sealing sleeves. the sleeves are meant to keep out moisture and contaminants. the agency wants metro to develop a program to make sure those sleeves are in place. the investigation stems from the day smoke filled the l'enfant plaza station leaving one woman dead. there will be no gag order in the fredz di gray case --

county and another two life terms in loudoun county on similar charges. he was charged in a string of attacks as far away as connecticut. prince george's county police are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest for a murder in capitol heights. 22-year-old davonn fogg was shot and killed sunday night while sitting in a car in the 1500 block of southern avenue. he was driven to capitol heights metro station where paramedics tried unsuccessfully to save him. polls have been open for five minutes because eight primary day in virginia. voters in the commonwealth will elect party candidates for state senate and house of delegates. there are also some key local races like alexandria mayor. polls are open till 7:00 tonight. you can read up on the candidateses and all the races by going to the voters guide on the wusa9 news app and at wusa9.com. glrs happening today, big news -- >> reporter: happening today, big news for d.c. united national. you'll soon have a brand new

annapolis and through the eastern shore. notice how the winds turn by 1:00 instead of the southwest out of the west that will take away our rain chance, increase the sunshine. temperatures still into the upper 80s. larry, over to you. looks like we're seeing a 10-mile backup on 95 on the virginia side because again the express lanes are closed so we have a lot more drivers traveling up the normal stretch of 95 than what we would normally see. so this delay is extended all the way to garrisonville and beyond. so we're asking drivers to account for that. a live look right now shows you how things are shaping up on 95. you can see the northbound side which would be on the left hand side of your screen, traffic is literally crawling this morning. along 50 looks like a lot better if you're going to be traveling inbound toward the beltway. we'll have much more coming up after the seven-day forecast. we'll send it over you to. >> thanks, larry. prosecutors bring a murder charge against the police officer in south carolina. >> in just a few minutes, we're going to share some of the stories you shared with us about surviving and living with
that was good, with the storms yesterday. >> they could have packed more of a punch if they came earlier. i was glad they came a little bit later because they still caused some damage with damaging winds and trees down. here's the good news. we see things quiet down. we still have light showers out there but no severe weather. as we head through the rest of the afternoon, the humidity will drop and more sunshine. that's something to look forward to let's take a look how we're starting off. this is the 24-hour temperature change. so right along 95 and really off to the east, we are much warmer than we were yesterday because the humidity is still high. that's going to keep your overnight lows very warm. but if lieu back off to the west -- if you look back off to the west, you see a difference. things are cooler. the front is still coming on through. we're not going to see a drastic drop in temperatures but upper 80s are the coolest we're going to be in the next seven. here you go with a few last lingering showers. the threat for the light showers will continue till
about lunch time, especially east of 95. then we'll be much drier for this afternoon. so from alexandria down through quantico, headed over to 301 just south of bowie to upper marlboro over to annapolis and down through dunkirk, light showers will continue. also through martinsburg and hagerstown. a couple more light showers will push on through till about lunch time. then we're done. as you look back off to the west, we'll get high pressure for tomorrow and it's going to be just the start of our temperatures rising. it's going to be quite uncomfortable. they're seeing a heat wave in the midwest and we'll see one too thursday, friday into saturday. temperatures will be very hot. close to record highs. i'm not sure we're going to break any record highs because i think the closest record high we have is on friday which is 95. we'll be watching that one closely. i think on thursday the record high is pretty high. 88 degrees for today and tomorrow. increasing sunshine. tomorrow looks great. warm, dry, humidity is relatively lower than it's
going to be. by thursday 94 degrees. it's hot. now we're going to have the chance for a shower or thunderstorm each afternoon. the best temperature relief we get is sunday into monday but that's still 90 degrees. so quite uncomfortable. larry miller, good morning. good morning, allyson. we still have the issues on the yellow line this morning. again delays in both directions because of an earlier issue outside of the king street metro station. the buses are running on schedule this morning. want to take you back to 95 on the virginia side again where we have a ten-mile backup because of the express lanes being closed. so we have a lot more traffic traveling up 95 on the virginia side than what we normally -- we normally would see. also on the virginia side here on i-66, we have a disabled vehicle blocking the right lane between nutley street and the beltway. from our camera we're able to see the delays building up. looks like traffic is starting to move so good news there. around the beltway things looking a lot better but again, you just want to be mindful of the delays mainly on the
virginia side. we'll have another update now shortly. in the news right now at 6:17, a number of groups in mckinney, texas, are planning another protest in response to a controversial video that's now gone viral. >> some people say the video shows an officer using excessive force while detaining a 15-year-old girl over the weekend. as don champion reports, hundreds of people protested the officer's actions last night. >> reporter: video of the incident during a pool party has been seen more than eight million times online. monday evening it had hundreds of people protesting at a mckinney, texas pool where officer casebolt was seen aggressively detaining a 15- year-old. neighbors called police after a fight and to complain about teens who did not have permission to be at the pool. the pool was reserved for a party by a woman who lived in the neighborhood. the homeowners association limits guests to only two per person but about 130 showed up. at one point casebolt in the

>> it's big [ inaudible ] it doesn't feel soccer'ish. >> reporter: we asked d.c. united goalkeeper travis what he thought about it. he said d.c. is absolutely a soccer town despite what anyone says and this new stadium will make it even more of a passionate fan base here. the press conference will begin at 11:00 at the wilson building. we'll be there and bring you updates all morning long on wusa9 news at noon. it will put rumors to rest that the soccer stadium will be in virginia. not the case. mayor bowser says it will be in d.c. where it belongs. i'm nikki burdine, wusa9. >> we were saying earlier not just a sports venue but an better at the same time venue. >> see what all that brings to the area. speaking of entertainment,
