11:27 am
else's. >> that's good. bowing to increased public pressure. the maker of epipens say they'll lower the costs. plus, it smells as bad as it looks. this ugly situation has some local business owners at their wit's end.
11:28 am
11:29 am
11:30 am
after months of publ outrage and political hammering over its rise in price, this is not the right video but the maker of the epipens says they'll make it cheaper but there are hoops to go through. and about that video, would you want to eat next to that there? the story of how a couple's business dream quickly turned into a nightmare. and amazon has cool plans for grocery shopping. fast and easy they say. the details straight ahead. good morning. i'm stacie schaible. >> and i'm gene ramirez. thank you for joining us. lots of activity in the
11:31 am
us. let's check in with her. >> yeah, good morning. this is the time of year that we expect the tropics to get active and right on queue. we have a couple issues out there. first of all, gaston now back to being a tropical storm. it became the third hurricane of the season just after midnight. i expect it to be a hurricane again, just going through a little bit of weaking. and then -- weakening. and then we have a tropical wave. in the short term, really going through an strengthen too much. long-term though, an 80% of developing. gaston with 70 miles per hour winds. by the weekend, it should regain the hurricane status. and may even be a strong category two hurricane. but the best news of all is it stays out to sea. we won't worry about gaston too much more. now a closer look at 99l, the tropical wave that's north. this is a different way of looking at the tracks that are a possibility but also the kind
11:32 am
head over. so over the next 48 hour, it will be heading toward the bahamas by about sunday. and moving into extremely warm water and that's where as we head early into next week, sunday and monday, this has a better chance of developing. then these storms, excuse me, the models take the storm into the gulf of mexico. looking at 87-degree water. 88-degree water. and we know warm water is the fuel that these storms need to get even stronger. so something we will continue to pay attent at this point, guys. >> all right. thank you. we have breaking news to tell you about now. u.s. 98 is shut down in pasco county. this is right near trill road. two people are dead after a car and tanker truck crashed. the truck is overturned and that is blocking the road there. we are working to find out more. we will keep you posted. and in breaking news, a child protection investigator with the pasco county sheriff's
11:33 am
fired. >> rod carter is live at the sheriff's office in pasco county with details. rod-- >> reporter: good afternoon. you know, the sheriff here just wrapped up the news conference a short time ago where he announced that christine mcrobby had been fired. they say she lied and falsified a report and she's not only been fired but she's been arrested. take a look at video. investigators say the investigator filed a report saying that she tested a couple for drugs not. it wasn't discovered until the family moved to hillsborough county and was investigated there. and that is when it was found that she lied about her investigation into that family here in pasco county. this family has several kids, a mother and father and the sheriff says she did that because she just wanted to end the case. >> she did make a statement that she falsified reports which state that the father
11:34 am
that is the one thing -- that's the reason she was fired. the one reason she has been arrested. she said the reason why she did it is because she wanted to close the case quickly. that's absolutely unacceptable. >> reporter: the sheriff telling us today that she is a citizen and not an actual deputy. but the child protective investigators work for sheriff's office here in pasco county. again, she has been arrested and charged with records. that is what makes the difference in this case. falsifying records is a misdemeanor but because she falsified dcf document, that made it a felony. >> all right, rod carter live this afternoon. thank you very much, rod. and new this morning, the makers of the epipens are caving to public and political pressure, slammed for months now for the severe price hikes. the company claims they'll now expand programs that lower patient's out of pocket cost by
11:35 am

11:37 am
>> reporter: regina and charlie hall are opening a restaurant called the smoke house express. but south waste created this outhouse express across the road. flushing away the business plan. >> people don't want to come to a food truck and eat when it smells like human waste. it's not appetizing. >> nauseating on a daily basis. the smell just will make you sick. make you want to vomit. >> reporter: charlie and regina photographed and video recorded this smelly to a state affidavit started around mid-june. they followed one truck back and contacted south waste manage. >> they just stuck to their story that it was a sod farm and they were dumping on sod farms. it's clearly not lake county. it's hernando county. >> reporter: so i went to try to get answers. >> can we and you questions? >> no, sir, have no comment. >> what was dumped? >> no comment. you can follow up with the department of agriculture.

11:44 am
they started trial runs in new zealand and they put on a demonstration this morning. they said afterwards, they aimed to launch regular service or to launch a regular service in late 2016. there goes the pizza. don't drop that. domino's wants to bring the service to the u.s. but laws and regulations need to catch up first. i wonder if they get there faster than the driver? probably they don't have to sit in traffic. kreme has the peanut butter. that's a little bit of the overload. >> i don't think it's of kill either. i think the more recee's peanutter you can have, the better my life is. >> that sounds good.
11:45 am
today the humidity was, maybe a touch lower than yesterday. a touch? >> i didn't feel it. >> we will take whatever we can get. >> yeah, a touch lower today. it was. just take my word for it. >> all right. we will. >> yeah, but still 93. so i guess it still doesn't mat their the humidity is lower at 52%. east wins at 6 miles per hour. the east wind is driving the showers already coming in off the east coast. we're just starting to see the first few pop-up ones around lake placid, south of sebring and highlands county and more moving through the area. by lunchtime, there would be the spotty showers but most of us would be dry and around 88 degrees. and conning to warm up to 92 at 4:00 p.m. and i think the best coverage of rain should be around 4:00. that's a 40% rain chance. and by 7:00 p.m., the rain is starting to come to an end where it's 86 degrees. and we touched 90 in plant city. 90 in venice. 88 in clearwater and tampa.
11:46 am
in fact, inland areas, quite strong, 18 miles per hour gusts here in lakeland. and again, that northeast wind bringing in the showers from the east coast. no place will get rain for very long. you might get near a shower but it's going to push toward the coast during the evening and then out into the gulf of mexico. and in fact, tomorrow's forecast is very similar. what happens after tomorrow, well, it will depend on what happens to in9l. notice what we do know the system heads toward the bahamas and then eventually towards southern florida. after that though, where it goes is more in question. i expect it to stay relatively weak and barely develop in the next two days and once it does make it past the bahamas, it's in an area where it could strengthen. and that's something we will pay attention to because a lot of models take it into the gulf of mexico. and if it's close enough, it would increase our rain
11:47 am
through the saturday up to about 50% chance for sunday and monday. and that may change again based on the track and eventual path of what the system becomes. overall, higher rain chances and certainly staying hot and humid with highs in the low 90s. >> all right. thank you. and in your vote, fresh off his visit to tampa, donald trump is turning the tables on had hillary rodham clinton calling her a bigot. she is expected to give a detailed response to that. >> and we have a preview of >> hillary rodham clinton is a bigot! who sees people of color. only as votes. not as human beings, worthy of a better future. >> reporter: donald trump's going after the african- american and latino vote by claiming democrats have done little to improve the lives of minority clinton's response comes this afternoon. she is expected to argue what
