11:00 am
and right now at 11:00, mass transit mess. there are widespread delays on septa regional rail lines this morning. you could be waiting quite a while for a train. then once you're on, seats are limited. it's because septa had to remove more than 100 rail cars from service because of a structural problem. top transit officials call the situation unprecedented. now, these pictures were taken before 8:00 this morning -- good morning, everyone. as we come on, we are about to hear from the fbi director, james comey, expected to make a statement from fbi headquarters in washington, and at this hour, we do not know the subject of
11:01 am
that statement that he's going to be making, but there's a lot of speculation that it may have something to do with the department of justice's investigation into hillary clinton, her e-mail practices. we have a live shot of the podium. we do expect director comey to take that spot in a couple of minutes. as we wait, let me turn to chuck todd, our political director and moderator of "meet the press." we are both scratching our heads. we don't know what the subject of this news conference is about. >> and one would assume, if it wasn't about this, and so many people are wondering, that he would have waved off -- sometimes he does this for terrorist investigations. let's not assume it is what it is. but coming just, what are we now, 72 hours removed from her 3 1/2-hour meeting with the fbi, which, i know in your experience, in your former days as a lawyer, that actually consult a l wasn't a lot of time in the middle of a supposed investigation. so that did give the clinton people feeling, well, maybe they feel good. >> here's director comey. let's listen to what he has to say.
11:02 am
>> good morning. i'm here to give you an update on the fbi's investigation of secretary clinton's use of a personal e-mail system during her time as secretary of state. after a tremendous amount of work over the last year, the fbi is completing its investigation and referring the matter to the department of justice for a prosecutive decision. what i want to do today is three things. i want to tell you what we did, i want to tell you what we found, and i want to tell you what we're recommending to the department of justice. this is going to be an unusual statement in at least a couple of ways. first, i'm going to include more detail about our process than i ordinarily would, because i think the american people deserve those details in a case of intense public interest. and second, i have not coordinated this statement or reviewed it in any way with the department of justice or any other part of the government. they do not know what i'm about to say. but i want to start by thanking the fbi employees who did remarkable work in this case.
11:03 am
once you have a better sense of how much we have done, you will understand why i am so grateful and so proud of their work. so first, what we have done. this investigation began as a referral from the intelligence community inspector general, in connection with secretary clinton's use of a personal e-mail server during her time as secretary of state. the referral focused on whether classified information was transmitted on that personal system. our investigation looked at whether there is evidence that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system, in violation of a federal statute that makes it a felony to mishandle classified information, either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way. or a second statute, making ate misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified information from appropriate systems or storage facilities. and consistent with our counterintelligence
11:04 am
responsibilities, we have also investigated to determine if there is evidence of computer intrusion by nation states or by hostile actors of any kind. now, i have so far used the singular term, "e-mail server," in describing the referral that began our investigation. it turns out to have been more complicated than that. secretary clinton used several different servers and administrators of those servers during her four years at the state department. and she also used numerous mobile devices to send and to read e-mail on that personal domain. as new servers and equipment were employed, older servers were taken out of service, stored, and decommissioned in various ways. piecing all of that back together to gain as full an understanding as possible of the ways in which personal e-mail was used for government work has been a painstaking undertaking, requiring thousands of hours of effort. for example, when one of secretary clinton's servers was
11:05 am
decommissioned in 2013, the e-mail software was removed. that didn't remove the e-mail content, but it was like removing the frame from a huge unfinished jigsaw puzzle, and then dumping all the pieces on the floor. the affect was that millions of e-mail fragments ended up in the server's unused or slack space. we searched through all of it to understand what was there and what parts of the puzzle we could put back together again. the fbi investigators also read all of the approximately 30,000 e-mails that secretary clinton provided to the state department in 2014. where an e-mail was assessed as possibly containing classified information, the fbi referred that e-mail to any government agency that might be an owner of that information, so that agency could make a determination as to whether the e-mail contained classified information at the
tv-commercial tv-commercial
11:06 am
time it was sent or received, or whether there was reason to classify it now, even if the content had not been classified when it was first sent or received. and that's the process, sometimes referred to as up-classifying. from the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the state department in 2014, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. eight of those chains contained information that was top secret at the time they were sent. 36 of those chains contained secret information at the time. and eight contained confidential information at the time. that's the lowest level of classification. separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were up-classified to make them confidential.
11:07 am
those e-mails had not been classified at the time they were sent or received. the fbi also discovered several thousand work-related e-mails that were not among the group of 30,000 e-mails returned by secretary clinton to state in 2014. we found those e-mails in a variety of ways. some had been deleted over the years and we found traces of them on servers or devices that had been connected to the private e-mail domain. others we found by reviewing the archived government accounts of people who had been government employees at the same time as secretary clinton. including high-ranking officials at other agencies, folks with whom the secretary of state might normally correspond. this helped us recover work-related e-mails that were not among the 30,000 that were produced at state. still others we recovered from that painstaking review of the millions of e-mail fragments dumped into the slack space of the server, that was decommissioned in 2013. with respect to the thousands of e-mails we found that were not
11:08 am
among those produced to the state department, agencies have concluded that three of those were classified at the time they were send or received, one of the secret level, and two at the confidential level. there were no additional top-secret e-mails found. and none of those we have found have since been up-classified. i should add here that we found no evidence that any of the additional work-related e-mails were intentionally deleted in an effort to conceal them in some way. our assessment is that like many e-mail users, secretary clinton periodically deleted e-mails or e-mails were purged from her system when devices were changed. because she was not using a government account or even a commercial account like g-mail, there was no archiving at all of her e-mails, so it's not surprising that we discovered e-mails that were not on secretary clinton's system in 2014 when she produced those 30,000 some e-mails to state. it could also be that some of
11:09 am
the additional work-related e-mails that we recovered were among those deleted as personal by her lawyers when they reviewed and sorted her e-mails for production in late 2014. the lawyers doing the sorting for secretary clinton in 2014 did not individually read the content of all of her e-mails, as we did, for those available to us. instead, they relied on header information and they used search terms to try to find all work-related e-mails among the reportedly more than 60,000 that were remaining on her system at the end of 2014. it's highly likely that their search missed some work-related e-mails and that we later found them. for example, in the mailboxes of other officials, or in the slack space of a server. it's also likely that there are other work-related e-mails that they did not produce to state and that we did not find elsewhere and that are now gone, because they deleted all e-mails they did not produce to state, and the lawyers then cleaned
11:10 am
their devices in such a way as to preclude complete forensic recovery. we have conducted interviews and done technical examination to attempt to understand exactly how that sorting was done by her attorneys. although we don't have complete visibility, because we're not able to fully reconstruct the electronic sorting, we believe our investigation has been sufficient to give us reasonable confidence there was no intentional misconduct in connection with that sorting effort. and, of course, in addition to our technical work, we interviewed many people, from those involved in setting up the personal e-mail system and maintaining the various iterations of secretary clinton's server, to staff members of whom she corresponded on e-mail, to those involved in the e-mail production to state, and finally, secretary clinton herself. last, we have done extensive work to try to understand what indications there might be of compromise by hostile actors, in connection with that personal
11:11 am
e-mail system. so that's what we've done. now let me tell you what we found. although we did not find clear evidence that secretary clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the hailing of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information. for example, seven e-mail chains concerned matters that were classified at the top-secret, special access program, at the time they were sent and received. those chains involved secretary clinton both sending e-mails about those matters, and receiving e-mails about those same matters. there is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in secretary clinton's position or in the position of those with whom she was corresponding about those matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation. in addition to this highly sensitive information, we also
11:12 am
found information that was properly classified as secret by the u.s. intelligence community at the time it was discussed on e-mail. that is excluding any later up-classified e-mails. none of these e-mails should have been on any kind of unclassified system. but their presence is especially concerning because all of these e-mails were housed on unclassified personal servers, not even supported by full-time security staff, like those found at agencies and departments of the united states government, or even with a commercial e-mail service like g-mail. i think it's also important to say something about the marking of classified information. only a very small number of the e-mails here containing classified information bore markings that indicated the presence of classified information. but even if information is not marked classified in an e-mail, participants who know or should know that the subject matter is classified are still obligated
11:13 am
to protect it. and while not the focus of our investigation, we also found evidence that the security department of the state department, in general and with respect to the use of unclassified systems in particular, was generally lacking in the kind of care for classified information that's found elsewhere in the u.s. government. with respect to potential computer intrusion by hostile actors, we did not find direct evidence that secretary clinton's personal e-mail domain, in its various configurations since 2009, was hacked successfully. but given the nature of the system, and of the actors potentially involved, we assess we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence. we do assess that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial e-mail accounts of people with whom secretary clinton was in regular contact from her personal account. we also assess that secretary clinton's use of a personal e-mail domain was both known by a large number of people and
11:14 am
readily apparent. she also used her personal e-mail extensively while outside the united states, including sending and receiving work-related e-mails in the territory of sophisticated adversaries. given that combination of factors, we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to secretary clinton's personal e-mail account. so that's what we found. finally, with respect to our recommendation of department of justice, in our system, the prosecutors make the decisions about whether charges are appropriate based on evidence that the fbi helps collect. although we don't normally make public our recommendations to the prosecutors, we frequently make recommendations, and engage in productive conversations with prosecutors about what resolution may be appropriate, given the evidence. in this case, given the importance of the matter, i think unusual transparency is in order. although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling
11:15 am
of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before deciding whether to bring charges. there are obvious considerations, like the strength of evidence, especially regarding intent, responsible decisions, also consider the context of a person's actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past. in looking back at our investigations, into the mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. all the cases prosecuted involve some combination of clearly intentional and willful mishandling of information, or vast quantities of information, exposed in such a way of supporting inference of intentional misconduct, or efforts to obstruct justice.
11:16 am
we do not see those things here. to be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. to the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions, but that's not what we're deciding now. as a result, although the department of justice makes final decisions on matters like this, we are expressing to justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case. i know there will be intense public debate in the wake of this recommendation, as there was throughout the investigation. what i can assure the american people is that this investigation was done honestly, competently, and independently. no outside influence of any kind was brought to bear. i know there are many opinions expressed by people who are not part of the investigation, including people in government, but none of that mattered to us. opinions are irrelevant.
11:17 am
and they were all uninformed by inside into our investigation, because we did our investigation the right way. only facts matter. and the fbi found them here in an entirely apolitical and professional way. i couldn't be prouder to be part of this organization. thank you very much. >> director comey, there are people -- >> a news conference from james comey, the director of the fbi, who served two administrations, both the obama administration and the bush administration and who has concluded significantly that hillary clinton will not face criminal charges in this investigation into her e-mail practices, when she was the secretary of state. as he mentioned just there, generally, the fbi makes a recommendation to the department of justice. in this case, loretta lynch, the head of the department of justice, has just, in essence, recused herself, saying she would accept whatever the recommendation of the fbi was.
11:18 am
and here they've decided not to prosecute, but that doesn't mean they give a free pass to hillary clinton and some of the behavior here. >> it wasn't. it was an extraordinary -- this was an extraordinary 15 minutes in the history of this presidential campaign. and maybe in the history of presidential politics. what was extraordinary about it, director comey felt he had to do what he had to do today, which is walk people through this -- we live in such an era of mistrust and distrust, he felt he had to spend half of his time painstakingly going through everything. but if you're hillary clinton, it is a clean legal bill of health. she does not have a clean political bill of health. this cloud is not going anywhere. it's not going to dump rain, dump sleet, dump stuff on her, but the cloud doesn't go away. this e-mail story brought back every negative stereotype of her that she thought her four years of secretary of state had kind of walked away. and that's the long-term damage this still did. >> it doesn't end her presidential campaign with an indictment, but as i turn to andrea mitchell who's watching
11:19 am
this with us, she's in charlotte where clinton is going to campaign with president obama today, there's no question there's a lot of material here for her political opponents to mind. james comey did not give her a free pass. in fact, saying that it was extremely careless for her to have had a home server that had classified information on it, andrea. >> indeed. and he also said that he could not rule out the likelihood that hostile actors penetrated not only her e-mail, but certainly the e-mails of those with whom she was communicating. he described a careless procedure at the state department under her management. and the fact that she was as careless as he described in his -- basically, there was a political indictment of the way she handled her e-mails. it discounts all of her explanations that she has made through the course of more than a year, as to the security of this e-mail system. and it will be fodder for her critics, and frankly, for a lot of her supporters, it's going to
11:20 am
be very troublely for the key voters, the independent voters who are so critical of this campaign. the fact also, the timing is so extraordinary, because she was -- she's supposed to be heading here to charlotte today on air force once, embraced by barack obama. how difficult is this, and the other thing we should point out, which is amazing, is that the fbi director would never, in an ordinary case, reveal this much about the case, as chuck was saying, in advance of his recommendation to the justice department. >> he gave a lot of information about what exactly that investigation had found. and we should mention, we're looking at a live picture of hillary clinton right now, who's on the campaign trail. chuck, i thought it was very interesting. because how many times have you heard, has andrea heard, have i heard, when we asked secretary clinton about this, the same words, i never knowingly sent or received classified information that was marked classified at the time, and comey took that on directly saying, even if something is not marked classified, people who know or
11:21 am
should know have a duty to protect it. in other words, he's saying, she should have recognized how sensitive this information was, whether or not it had a marking that said classified. >> and he took it to a point of essentially he said, i've got two examples where she should have known better. it wasn't just a blanket, she should have known better, he essentially walked through two specific examples of e-mail chains where she both sent and received, that she should have known better. but let's talk about this big picture. i mean, had this gone another way, we're nine days from the first convention and a week later, philadelphia. this could have created an entirely different chaotic situation in the democratic party. so today is a sense of relief over there in brooklyn. there's a whole bunch of people who were watching on tv today, by the way, they had no idea what was coming. they thought it felt good, considering saturday to today. they thought, that's the sign of a good thing, but they were nervous. >> something that never happens
11:22 am
in washington, a genuine sense of suspense. pete williams, you're the perfect person to remark on how unusual this is that james comey came out and not only said what his suggestion was, but walked everyone through the investigatory steps. >> as soon as they said that the fbi director was going to be making this announcement, i think the conclusion was that he would say what he said. a couple of things are to point out here, savannah, the first is that she used a personal e-mail server really is irrelevant to the question of how classified informs was handled. it would have been the same problem if she had used the unclassified system. that was the system, putting classified information in an unclassified system. what the fbi director said, using her personal e-mail made it worse, because it was less protected, but the main problem was putting classified information on a non-government, non-classified system. but basically, his conclusion
11:23 am
is, it was sloppy, but it wasn't criminal. and i can tell you that he said that the justice department didn't know what he was going to say. i can assure you that's true, because i was trying for the last hour to figure out what he was even going to say, and they didn't know. but, you know, i've been talking to people at the fbi for weeks now saying, if you don't recommend charges, how are we going to know you're done? and within the last couple of weeks, they were saying, well, we're discussing that now. so the fact that he did this morning i don't think is a surprise. but you're right, it's extremely unusual for a director of the fbi to lay out what the recommendations to the justice department are. now, it's not over. justice will still make a decision, but the attorney general said just last week that she will be guided by the recommendations of comey and the career people at justice. so i would be very surprised if this goes any way other than no charges. >> pete, you make a good point.
11:24 am
the issue of whether or not she had a personal server is not directly relevant to whether she mishandled classified information. but there was another part of this investigation, and that was whether any hostile actor or nation state had been able to access this information. and andrea, let me put that one to you. i though it was also quite remarkable that he said, the fact that she had this private e-mail, was known to a large number of people, that she used this private e-mail overseas, he said, we didn't see any direct evidence of interference, but by its very nature, we probably wouldn't. i felt like that he was saying, if likely there was some intrusion there. >> exactly. and the fact that she used her private, her device overseas, in hostile territory. in other words, most likely, in russia and china. and in places where they would have such access. she said, it is likely that it was penetrated, although they had no evidence of it. pete is a better expert on one piece of this, but i think it's also, justice department rules that you do not make decisions
11:25 am
very close to a presidential election or influencing a presidential election. and i think in that case, they were already getting very close to that moment. so they had to say something before she is officially nominated. it would have been that much worse in august after the democratic convention. >> it bears repeating. >> there is a downside here. i mean, there is no criminal prosecution, because as he points out, in all of the past cases, and i know a number of them, personally, as do you, where we've had a former -- two former cia directors, in fact, who were involved in the mishandli mishandling, accusations of mishandling classified information. it was intent and the quantity of the information in those cases that led to prosecution. >> no question about it. whether to prosecute for this fbi director seemed to hang on the issue of whether there was evidence of intentional misconduct. he's made his recommendation to the department of justice, that criminal charges not be filed. we'll continue to follow this.
11:26 am
lots more on msnbc,, and tonight on nbc news with lester holt. i'm savannah guthrie in new york this has been an nbc news special report. and we will continue to update our top story, the widespread delays and issues on septa's regional rails this morning. it's because septa had to remove more than 100 rail cars from service because of a structural problem. our live team coverage continues just ahead after the break.
11:27 am

11:29 am
call 1-866-999-0154 to apply now. septa slowdown. and it's a major headache for commuters on the regional rails this morning. there are fewer trains on the tracks because of a structural problem. and the ones that are there are running behind or may not even be stopping at your station. we have pictures that were taken just before 8:00 this morning, and they show a packed train on septa's west trenton line, heading into center city. this is the scene on many trains today, and will be for the foreseeable future. some trains are actually skipping stations altogether, because they're so crowded. here's what you need to know. septa's regional rail has about 13,000 fewer seats than normal. the trains are running on a
11:30 am
saturday schedule today, so that means some trains may not be stopping at your neighborhood station. to help ease overcrowding, septa is increasing its bus and trolley service. let's go live to septa headquarters right now, where engineers are inside, monitoring the situation. they knew today would be a challenge. they've already seen the problem that played out during the morning commute. now they're just going to watch for the evening rush and see what happens there. we do have live team coverage right now. nbc 10 first alert traffic reporter, jessica boyington is watching the effects of the septa delays. nbc 10's lauren make is live at septa headquarters downtown. but we begin with nbc 10's pamela osborne, who spoke with commuters all morning. pamela, what can you tell us? how has it evolved from this morning to now? >> reporter: katy, things have definitely slowed down now that we're out of that morning rush. we've been talking to commuters all morning long. they tell us, yes, this is an inconvenience, but they're glad that septa was able to find that
11:31 am
problem and that they are working to get it fixed. this will, without a doubt, be an especially long summer for commuters, though. that face says it all. septa riders were prepared for big headaches during the morning rush, and they got it. >> because, you don't mow when the train's going to come. >> reporter: at times, the glenside station was packed with commuters, trying to get to work. >> normally, there aren't that many people at this time. it's usually less crowded. >> reporter: there wasn't much room on the trains either. we got on one train to show you just how crowded things got. at some points during the morning rush, the trains were so full that they didn't even stop. >> you've got to get to work. you've got to do what you've got to do. >> reporter: but even more worrisome than the ride in is what passengers are bracing for, for the ride home. >> we get on at prime time. 3:57 is my train. so it's already crowded. >> reporter: and we were talking to some of the passengers earlier this morning.
11:32 am
we know that some people were having to use different stations, that they typically don't ride out of, because of that changed schedule. we even spoke to one woman who said she's going to continue to ride the train, but she may be staying in the city a few days throughout the week, throughout the summer, to try to alleviate some of that commute time. reporting live in glenside, i'm pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. >> pamela, thank you. our live team coverage continues now with nbc 10 first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington. tell us about the impact you've seen so far with mass traffic delays? >> this morning, of course, we had really severe delays, especially considering everybody back to work today, and this was the first day we really had to deal with it. if you are just tuning in, the regional rail for septa is running on a modified saturday schedule. and additionally, the kinwood line will be replaced with trains. buses will replace trains with shuttle buses until further notice. what we're watching for are major delays, overcrowding, and
11:33 am
a lot of trains, once they're full, they have to skip stations and run into an express train, instead. there will be extra service, though. norristown high speed line, broad street line, the market frankford line, the route 102 and 102 trolleys and amtrak's keystone line will also be providing extra it was for passengers. because this will be there for quite some time. you can check with for more of that information and alternate routes. and we'll keep you updated every single morning, monday through friday, between 4:00 and 7:00 a.m., with more alternates and updates on delays. >> lauren make is outside septa headquarters in center city, philadelphia. lauren, earlier we heard from top transit officials who said this situation is unprecedented. what are they saying at this hour? >> reporter: well, katy, we have actually made it inside to the control center for septa, and they tell me that things started out okay today, but then it got
11:34 am
really crowded on those trains. let me step aside and let you take a look at what's behind me here. this is the rail system that you see on that large board behind me. they've been able to monitor things from inside here. they tell me they ran six trains express this morning, meaning they might not have stopped at your stop, just bypassing them, because those cars were so packed. now, what they are watching for today is where people are traveling and how those rush hours go. and then, what judgments they'll need to make for the future, for example, a shuttle on the cynwood line helped out another line today. but they know that tomorrow could be an even bigger challenge. we talked to septa's general manager about that. >> this is going to be a very fluid situation. and we know that this has disrupted people's lives in a very profound way. last thing we ever wanted to have happen. so we're going to work very, very hard to constantly make
11:35 am
things better. >> reporter: and they are really encouraging people to take alternate forms of transportation, perhaps, the broad street subway line. now, septa itself is also looking at its own alternatives, possibly leasing some equipment. but for now the congestion and the delays could continue. live in center city, i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. >> lauren, thanks for that update. stay with nbc 10 for complete coverage of the septa slowdown, right here on the nbc 10 app and on we have the revised schedules and routes along with alternate travel options for you. >> announcer: now your nbc 10 first alert neighborhood weather. >> it's 11:35 on this tuesday, and clearing conditions outside as we take a live look at philadelphia's boathouse row. it's really warming up out there, too. it's getting pretty steamy. first alert meteorologist sheena parveen is here with the forecast. sheena, we went from rain this morning to really intense heat,
11:36 am
right, that we'll expect over the next few days? >> yeah, and we're still overcast outside right now, but the heat is going to be on this afternoon. it's going to get hot outside. especially as we go through the rest of the week. here's a live look now. we still have the clouds around, but the rain is offshore. that's good news, we're not dealing with the heavy rain or flooding threat anymore. but as we go through this afternoon, we'll see gradual clearing and temperatures heating up. all right heating up in philadelphia, 80 degrees and it's humid outside, too. delaware coming in around 80. later on today, look at these high temperatures. we expect 89, pennsylvania suburbs, philadelphia, around 90 as well. we'll keep watching all of this for you. more 90s in the forecast. so we could be looking at a heat wave. i'll show you that with our ten-day forecast. that's coming up in just a bit. but at least all the heavy rain this morning is gone, so that is the good news. katy? >> sheena, thanks. see you then. coming up next, red cross emergency. the need for blood donations has reached a critical level. the red cross is with us this morning to talk about their greatest needs and how they're
11:37 am
making it easier for you to help them out and safe a live. hi, i'm alexa. you can ask me anything. >> and we do. coming up later, meet alexa. we'll show you how nbc 10 is giving you another way to get your headlines and news and any question answered, just by the sound of your voice.
11:38 am
11:39 am
11:40 am
an update now to our breaking news. the fbi is recommending that hillary clinton not face criminal charges in connection with that private e-mail server she used while she was secretary of state. fbi director james comey just made the announcement about a half hour ago. you saw his statements right here on nbc 10 live. >> in looking back at our investigations into the mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on thesepr facts. >> the justice department and fbi have been investigating the matter for months. the fbi met with clinton three days ago. the justice department has been looking into whether anyone mishandled classified information that flowed through clinton's e-mail server. >> and coming up, we'll take a look at a heat wave in the forecast, also another chance for thunderstorms before the week is over. that's next.

nice story, keith. and i love that cameo by sheena. switching gears now, the american red cross desperately needs your help, especially over the next few months. there's right now an urgent need for blood and platelet donations. and you're being asked to roll up your sleeves and donate. joining me now is guy triano. he's the donor recruitment director for the american red cross. thanks so much for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> we were talking during that story and also during the break. why is this an important time where blood donations are so low? >> this time specifically, because our high schools and colleges are out for the summer and with the independence day holiday yesterday and over the weekend, many folks are on vacation. many of the blood donors out there are on vacation. so the attendance is down in businesses and their community and religious organizations are low. and the truth of the matter is the patients don't go on vacation. so the blood and the need is still there. >> so what are some of the key things that you want to inform, those who are at home thinking,
11:47 am
should i donate? not donate? what are the basic things? >> one is, please don't hesitate or don't delay your donation. we really need you to donate this summer, specifically in the months of july and august. and how to do that is you can go on, call 1-800-red-cross, or you can use our new app. >> is that what's keeping you a little bit more technology -- >> yeah, the app is excellent, because if you download the app, you can schedule your appointment yourself, what's convenient around your time, then you can also track your blood donation process. so once you donate blood, if it's in our storage, if it's being tested, and to the point of where it goes and gets delivered to the hospitals, which is really nice and the donors love it. >> you'll know which hospital, or just that it was delivered to a hospital? >> both, actually. you can actually get your stats, too. your blood donation stats, your eligibility, when you're eligible, and the scheduling.
11:48 am
>> why did you decide to become so transparent with that? >> you have to keep up with times, right? you have to keep up with trends and that works well. another new feature that we have is our rapid pass. it's cutting down our donation time 10 or 15 minutes, which is outstanding. and that process is, it allows you to do all of your reading, and the prep work the day of, prior to showing up to the blood drive. so from that point, it's saving about 10 to 15 minutes on a donor, and they go right into the actual donation process. >> your appointment time, right, in half? how long does it normally take? >> from beginning to end, it takes about an hour. so we ask you to schedule an point. and when you get there, you do the reading of your materials. and you have about 60 questions you answer. all of that can be done ahead of time now, which saves you the time. and from that process, the actual donation process is 10 to 12 minutes. >> okay. and from there, you're followed by everyone's favorite, you know, juice and crackers, canteen and refreshments. >> the gram crackers and o.j. is great. what blood type are you most in need of?
11:49 am
>> right now since we're on an emergency appeal, we're asking for all blood types. we need all donors, not just specific. >> all right, guy, thank you so much for being here. i appreciate it. >> appreciate it. >> to find a blood drive in your area, head to our website, or check out the nbc 10 app. again, thank you so much for being here. >> thank you so much. >> good luck. >> we appreciate it. all right. we have the rain this morning, the heavy rain, and as we go through the afternoon, temperatures are going to start to heat up. also, in our new neighborhood weather, don't forget your seven-day forecast right at the bottom of the screen for you. temperatures right now, looking at our neighborhood temperatures, we're all mostly around 80 degrees. the rain has left in new jersey, and now temperatures are warming up. right now in washington township, 77 degrees. mullica hill, 80 right now. mt. laural coming in at 74. metford, 79, as well as turnersville. and we have an 80 in hamilton township, coming right in at 80. we are nice and dry. the heavy rain has left, the
