they got about a million people evacuated from the coastal areas, but they had 10 inches in rain in a short time. the winds are down to about 1142, were up to 195 earlier. as it heads across the china sea, it's going to get stronger, passing northeast of vietnam and head toward laos, hopefully weakened by then. on monday, it could make another direct hit into central portions of laos, eventually portions of china. we'll be tracking this over the next several days. looks like the category 5 storm, down to a 4, may get back to category 5 before it's said and done. >> bob, thank you. searching for answers, new information tonight about a fatal crash that left an elderly couple dead. wjz is live with more on charges just filed in the accident. >> reporter: vic, police say two of the drivers have been

6:13 pm
that has them in first place in the north. the ravens need to counter by getting their own offense in gear. joe flacco and company have been stuck in neutral, far cry from the high-revving offense that rolled into the super bowl playoffs. >> we haven't been good in terms of precision in the passing game and getting the running game going, getting 1st downs. we haven't done it. >> reporter: ravens are back on home turf and with a record of 3-5, this one feels like a must- win. our panel of experts predict how the ravens will fare. >> i'm a little concerned as the ravens come back home to m & t bank stadium against the 5th ranked defense in the nfl. i don't see a win. 24-17, again gals. >> i can't go with the ravens with good conscience. there's no indication they will win against a good bengals team. i'll give them a couple points, but i see it going cincinnati's way, 23-16. >> let's face it, no one expected them to be 3-5. i'm
6:14 pm
going to give you another surprise. the anemic offense will come to life. ravens beat the bengals 27-20. >> i think the ravens will show real fight at home against the bengals, but i can't pick them over a real good cincinnati team. it will be close, but i'll take the bengals, this 24-20. ravens are more than capable of beating the bengals and i won't be surprised if they do. but the ravens haven't played up to their capabilities. my guess, bengals win 27-20, but that's just a guess. more in sports, coming up. >> hope you're wrong, mark! you can see the game sun at 1:00 right here on wjz. >> i just want to see touchdowns! >> that, too! still to come on eyewitness news, nsa spying scandal. how edward snowden apparently got his hands on reames of secret documents. >> reporter: after a string of violent robberies against university students at towson.

6:26 pm
pennsylvania and portions of new york state this afternoon. here we had clouds that kind of made it over the mountains for a little while, but for the most part, partly sunny day, certainly cooler. there you see the lake effect snow. when the winds come across the warm lakes, cold winds pick up the moisture. soon as it gets into 500 to 1000 feet above elevations, squeezes it out in the form of snow. some days, they get hours and hours of these constant lake effect snows. this time of year particularly when the lakes are warm, you get some of your heaviest snows. once the lakes freeze over, you don't have a lot. won't see that for a while. cool here tonight, cool tomorrow. on sunday, mild air coming in ahead of another front that will cool us down for next week. looks like it's going to get chilly by the middle of next week. winds, southwest 5 to 15 on the bay. however, tonight, there the breeze is up. bay temp, 58 degrees.
6:27 pm
overnight tonight, cold night with the winds down to 29 to about 37 in the city. tomorrow, 54, lot of sunshine, a nice fall day to get out and rake leaves. it will be breezy, but warmer on sunday. close to 60 for the football game. >> thank you, bob. still to come on wjz's eyewitness news, new details emerging about the alleged bullying against miami dolphins player jonathan martin and how he tried to stop it. >> deadly diseases coming back with a vengeance. wjz investigators this alarming trend and explains how the health of your children is at risk. i'm linh bui. the story all parents need to watch, coming up on wjz. >> and coming up, threats from space. why the odds of a dangerous hit have increased. that story, as eyewitness news that story, as eyewitness news continues. ♪ i woke up to a lightbulb ♪ every little thing is possible ♪

6:31 pm
incognito. we have the latest from south florida. >> reporter: ritchie incognito's locker, his clothes hanging neatly, quite a contrast to the mess and how else do you put it, caused by the incognito-jonathan martin bullying scandal. thursday, dolphins head coach joe philbin was back in front of the microphones. he wanted to talk tampa bay, the opponent monday night. nothing else. >> any comments we would make at this time would be a disservice to the process that's about to take place. >> reporter: in the locker room, most players had had enough of it, too. >> you all ask us questions. >> reporter: when asked how does a locker room stay together with all this distraction? people outside don't get it. players who would talk were still trying to make sense of it all. >> gets to the sense where you can't differentiate between what's fact and what's opinion. >> reporter: what's been most puzzling is the relationship between incognito and martin that has begun to emerge. can we really believe they were
6:32 pm
best friends, as some have said? two men from very different backgrounds and experiences. martin, a stanford grad who talked of attending harvard law. a quiet guy by all accounts. incognito, perhaps the polar opposite. a man who at least at one time apparently thought little of screaming racial slurs and using vulgar language publicly. >> who wants -- [ bleep ] >> reporter: the players twice voted by his peers, one of the dirtiest guys in the game. >> what's perceived is ritchie is this psych path, racist maniac, right? the reality is ritchie was a pretty good teammate and ritchie and jonathan martin were friends. >> today, martin's new attorney says the harassment came from more than just one teammate and included daily vulgar comments and a physical attack. inadequate security measures may have led to the worst breach of classified data in the nsa.
6:33 pm
sources say nsa contractor edward snowden may have persuaded up to 25 fellow workers at a spy base in hawaii to give them their log-ins and pass words, telling them he needed them to do his job as a systems administrator. it's unclear what rules the employees broke by giving up pass words. breaking news, we have learned the fbi is investigating allegations of child abuse by a former civilian employee at the fort mead youth center. the fbi is leading the investigation because the alleged incidents took place at a federal facility. the suspect has been banned from the base. fort meade officials are cooperating with the fbi and have ordered a full review of all youth programs. president obama makes a personal apology to the more than 3 million americans who have lost their insurance because of the affordable care act. >> i am sorry that they, uh, you know, are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got
6:34 pm
from me. >> insurance policies that fell short of the new healthcare law standards are no longer valid. the president says his administration is looking at a range of options to help people whose insurance has been canceled. well, deadly diseases once nearly wiped out are making a frightening comeback in maryland and across the country. a warning that parents who don't vaccinate their children are putting others at risk. in this wjz health watch, linh bui explores an alarming and controversial trend. >> reporter: measles, mumps, whooping cough. deadly diseases. until recently, virtually eliminated, thanks to vaccines that prevent kids from getting sick. but now doctors see an alarming trend. more and more children are coming down with these diseases. >>it's a serious issue these diseases are coming back? >> very. kids die from measles on a regular basis. kids are in hospitals and can
6:35 pm
die from whooping cough commonly. so these kids are at risk. >> reporter: here in maryland, cases of whooping cough are sky rocketing, tripling from 123 cases in 2011 to nearly 370 last year. outbreaks of measles and mumps have swept through states across the country. just how serious a problem is it when a child gets sick? summer robinson experienced it firsthand. her son was just three weeks old when whopping cough put him in intensive care for five days and nearly killed him. >> when he was diagnosed, what went through your mind? >> you worry about breathing, how long he's been breathing, how long he's not been breathing. it's scary. >> reporter: too young for the recommended vaccine, her baby was defenseless. he's living proof one contagious person can start an outbreak. >> if your 10-year-old has it and you're in wal-mart near my
6:36 pm
3 week-old-baby, you could essentially kill my baby because you didn't vaccinate your child. >> reporter: if these diseases can be prevented by a vaccine, why are a growing number of parents not getting the shots? some fear the vaccines can do more harm than good. >> these vaccines and doses can be deadly. >> reporter: after researching vaccines and talking with doctors, this annapolis mom decided not to vaccinate her young children. she asked wjz to hide her identity because other parents are angry her kids would put their kids in danger. >> what happened that led you to make this decision not to vaccinate your kids? >> it didn't make sense to me. i didn't understand why a little human had to get so many drugs at one time. >> reporter: she believes her family's healthy life-style will keep her children from getting sick, but most doctors insist that's not enough. >> doesn't matter what vitamins they are, how healthy they are, natural, organic, it's
6:37 pm
irrelevant. your child will get sick. >> you don't ever want to be in an icu unit and not know if your child is going to live, especially over a disease that's preventible. >> in maryland, children must be immunized to attend school, but can be exempt for medical or religious reasons. the towson tigers open up their new basketball home when they host navy tonight. >> and coverage of the city- poly, in tomorrow's baltimore sun. . well, it appears that earth has more bullets to dodge than expected. last february's meteor blast over siberia sent nasa scientists back to their
6:38 pm
computers over worrisome numbers. >> reporter: they may only be bits and pieces of the solar system, but asteroids are a threat to earth and life on it. >> nothing to be totally frightened about, except they are in the wrong place. we're now realizing there may be more small ones, more frequently than we had anticipated. >> reporter: a realization that literally hit home last february, when a meteorite exploded over siberia. suddenly, astronomers were news. >> we are sitting ducks. that was a wakeup call, what happened in russia. >> reporter: because it was made up of compacted stones, it exploded high up in an air burst. it was still powerful enough to injure 1600 people. if it had been iron-nickel asteroid-- >> it could have created a crate tore. >> reporter: such a hit was
6:39 pm
predicted to -- nasa used to search out asteroids 100 feet wide and larger. the rock that hit siberia was just 62 feet. smaller asteroids making the odds of a destructive hit four to five times more likely. the siberian blast was the equivalent of 40 a-bombs. >> the earlier we gain warning, the better we can make civil defense preparedness decisions. >> reporter: nasa plans not only to look for smaller asteroids, but there is a goal to eventually catch one for study and learn the best way to someday redirect them away from a collision course with earth. all this means that the possibility of another air burst, like the one over russia, goes from once in every 150 years to once in every 30. back to you. >> that low-key table top drill that nasa ran after the siberian explosion also estimate add hit off the mid- atlantic coast could possibly generate a tsunami 49 feet high. the ravens team up with the
