this to you i'm gust getting this. central camden and southwestern burlington county. 6:26. severe thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes and straight line wind damage located over woodbury hearts and gloucester city and moving east at 45 miles per hour. impacts expected flying debris caught without shelter. mobile homes will be likely to be damaged or destroyed, damage to roof, windows and vehicles may occur. this is a very serious situation that's starting to develop. there's the line that's pushing through, we'll zoom into the area that's under the warning, so what we're looking at here is mainly areas you can see the cell it is racing off to the east, it is mainly this area here, we'll say north of gibbs borough into the marlton mount laurel area.
6:32 am
i'm going to assume it's this cell right here. haddonfield, cherry hill, it is this area racing off to the east at 40 miles per hour. they are detecting a little bit of rotation in the cell, the storm is capable of producing a tornado or damaging straight line winds. if you'reny part of viewing area, anywhere east of haddonfield, take cover now, seek shelter in the basement. it's moving so quickly you don't have to be there long, 15 or 20 minutes or so. places like marlton, mount laurel, gibbs borough, mount holly, rancocas, this area here, seek shelter find yourself a spot in the basement and let it ride through, as we begin to track what's beginning to become a dangerous storm here. heavy rains extending southward all the way down into southern portions of new jersey and getting into the state of delaware. it's turning into transitioning
6:33 am
into a powerful squall line. this is the area right here, we'll continue to watch this for a second as this updates, cherry hill seeing the bulk of the storm right now indicated by the reds in these darker shades of maroon. let me step out here and work the controls and do a couple of more zooms so we can get you up to date on what's happening here. let me make a quick zoom we'll zoom a little bit tighter into this part of viewing area, morris town, mount laurel, marlton, some of the streets here, neighborhoods, this i believe is route 70 right here and then this would be i believe this is 73. it will be these areas, this cell right in through here that looks like it is capable of producing the tornado. the tornado warning continues for, again, central camden county in southern new jersey, north central gloucester county, southwestern burlington county up until 7:00 a.m.
6:34 am
right now they have listed it be around glassboro at 6:30, magnolia and turnersville around 6:35 a.m., lindenwald he echelon area, 6:40 a.m. atco 6:50 a.m. they have not seen a tornado tornado on the ground. it is radar indicated tornado. which means the cell is capable of producing the rotating windsful this is a serious situation, again it is this area here all the way down, actually i'm going to push this a little bit farther to the south. this area all in through here, looks like it might be this cell. this almost looks like a little hook here, let's zoom into this part of the viewing area, right here, i'm going to make a couple of street locaters right here. here's route 30, this right here is the new jersey turnpike.
6:35 am
again it will be this area from marlton through gibbs borough and berlin. keep an eye out make sure you're trying to find i don't way to the basement. if you don't have access to the basement, get to the center part of the home, put as many walls between you and the outside. this a tornadoes warning for central camden county north central gloucester county and southwestern burlington county. glassboro, pushing he's, magnolia and turnersville. lind'sen wald 640 -- lindenwald 6:40 a.m. and atco around 6:50 a.m. we continue to see this update moving very, very quickly 40 to 45 miles per hour. it is that cell over top of the new jersey turnpike, that's one of the areas we're seeing not only the tremendous amount of
6:36 am
rain, but the winds. if you're not seeing the rotating winds you're seeing the straight-line winds. they can cause extensive damage, straight line wind gusts up to 50 to 55 miles per hour. a nice little squall line is starting to develop. this is a dangerous situation, marlton, gibbsboro, berlin, bearing down on you, tornadoes warning is in effect until 7:00 a.m. as we watch these lines of powerful storms push through. this is tropical cindy remnants that's charging east. the squall line stretches from new york city down to areas west of dover, again, moving to the east at 40 to 45 miles per hour. so the tornadoes warning continues for central camden county in southern new jersey, north central gloucester county
6:37 am
in southern new jersey, and southwestern burlington county until 7:00 a.m. again, this is radar indicated rotation, i'm not picking up any cylinders as of yet. let me see if i can put on -- i want to go to the controls here and see if we can get that, that popping up here so we can see a couple of rotating cylinders, right now i'm not picking that up on the radar, we'll see if we can find some for you here, let me set it in motion very, very quickly. i'm not picking up cylinders, but, again, national weather service is suggesting that we're seeing pretty good upper level rotation that's starting to work closer to the grounds that's why the tornadoes warning has been issued for central camden county, north central gloucester county and southwestern burlington county until 7:00 a.m. this is the area we're assumed into here, i want to pan a little bit farther to the south right here, there it is, right
6:38 am
there there's another one west of turnersville. again all this moving to the east at 40 miles per hour. i'll go a little bit wider here, so you get a general idea of the cell we're watching. this one here pushing north of gibbs borough and barns borough and places like rich wood. swedesboro seeing the heavy rains, again, it will be this area in through here, from gibbsboro south of the turnersville area north of pitman we're seeing the heavy rain and strong gusty winds. again, i do not see any cylinders as of yet, the national weather service has picked that up with their radar. they show a decent amount of rotation working its way down towards the grounds. again we expect the storm to be over the lindenwald and echelon area 6 4:00, 648. it's on top of you now.
6:39 am
chisel hurst and atco 6:50 a.m. do you want me to stay on this or to say it back to gray. gray i'll send it back over to you, i'll continue to watch it and be back along in just a few minutes. >> you can get the latest at you can get the latest forecast including detailed updates an storm tracker 6 live radar at any time on your phone or tablet. the 6abc app is a free download for your mobile device. your time, 6:40 a.m., we're tracking breaking news coming in from north philadelphia. police are outside dobbins high school investigating the fatal stabbing of a woman. they are looking into the possibility that she was sexually assaulted. the woman was in her 0s her clothes partially removed and they say she was stabbed multiple times. they are not saying the crimes happened on the grounds of the
6:40 am
school at 21st and lehigh. we have a crew on the scene getting the latest. as we get the information we'll bring it to you. let's get back to the tornadoes watch meteorologist chris sowers back with the latest. >> reporter: gray, this is tornadoes warning now, continues until 7:00 a.m. this is up for central camden county, north central gloucester county and southwestern burlington county in southern new jersey. i'm watching the statement from the national weather service now. this is what i have been waiting for to pop up here. the storm is moving off to the east at 40 miles per hour. let me put a track on it for you. let me show you the areas that are under the gun now. if you live in any one of these locations starting to pop up. seek shelter immediately, the best place to be during an tornado event would be in the basement. if you don't have a basement try to find the center part of the house, the object is to put as many walls between you and the
6:41 am
outside as possible. turnersville it's over top of you. dplen -- glen lock pushing to the east. this is radar indicated, i have not seen a report of an actual tornado on the ground, but we're starting to pick up good rotation with that particular cell right here. the rotation is strong enough to warrant a tornado warning. this is capable of producing a tornado at any point in time. we had tornadoes the other day, ef-o, maximum stained winds 80 to 85 miles per hour. we had one in berks county and sussex county in southern delaware that was a couple of days ago. this line is moving at 40 miles per hour. the movement alone would push the winds close to severe criteria. you are get circulating winds if you see a tornadoes with this this could be in the 80 to
6:42 am
100-mile an hour rake. this becomes a danger -- 100-mile an hour range. this is becoming a dangerous situation here. it is over top of turnersville. sewell you're seeing heavy rain and strong gusty winds. williams town, berlin, atco, same thing it is pushing out of pitman and dplos borough now -- glassboro, now. this is up for central camden county north central gloucester county and southwestern burlington counties. we are expecting to see a little bit of damage here, if you're not picking up rotating winds you're seeing the strong straight line winds beginning to develop here, flying debris is possible. it could be dangerous for those caught without shelter. if you're listening to me right now, your husband or somebody is outdoors or pulling the weeds, getting a morning start come in
6:43 am
doors and head to the basement seek shelter in this part of the viewing area until we see the warning until 7:00 a.m. looks like we're being told that mercer county is now under the tornadoes warning, so let me update a couple of things here. yes we have -- this is a separate storm, let's do this, this is the tornadoes warning this is for north central gloucester county and portions of camden county. we have another cell that has issued a tornado warning for mercer county. i'll pull off this cell quickly and get over to that storm let's see what's going on up here, this is the cell right here this is also prompted a tornado warning. this guy right here, we'll put a track on him, and looking at some information trying to get caught up with what's going on
6:44 am
here. this is moving to the east/northeast what they call a meso scale cyclone they are picking up good rotation here. top -- let me zoom in here, this is trenton, man pulling away. let's get a storm track on this guy real quick. moving at 40 miles per hour, so here's the storm track for this guy right here, looks like the north canton area 6:45 a.m. hickory corner, 6:46 a.m. sharon 6:47 a.m. moving off to the east/northeast at 40 miles per hour pushing into monmouth county to places
6:45 am
like clarks burger and james burg and into jackson. this is pulling out of the viewing area, i'm going back to the one that is in the heart of our viewing area, we'll focus in on that right now. it is this area here, look at these arrows that are starting to pop up, they are called m. he -- meso cyclones. we're starting to see s-shaped here. a lot of time when you see s-shaped echo like this, it is this area where we start to see the rotating winds because the winds are blowing so fast this way they are blowing out and around, so they are curving back and create kind of a little eddie, i'm sure you've seen that on a windy day, you're raking
6:46 am
the leaves and you see a little rotation, you start to see the winds bow out and this bows out that's creating an eddie in through here, that's racing off to the east. it is this area here, that's where i'm going to zoom into, i'm going to put a storm track on that one, as we continue to watch the storm race off to the east at 40 miles per hour. there we go, there's our storm track right here, it looks like again, some of the locations here on the left part of the screen under the gun, tornado warning continues until 7:00 a.m. whitman square looks like 6:48 a.m., it's pretty much on you guys now, 6:48 a.m., cross keys, williams town, 6:51 a.m. blue anchor next in line and north of hammonton. that's for the particular cell that is campaigning capable of producing the tornadoes of the. just about the whole area from berlin down is seeing the powerful straight line winds.
6:47 am
you can get expensive damage with straight lined winds. it doesn't take a tornado to topple trees and pull roofs off buildings. reporting winds up to 60 miles per hour. tornadoes warning in effect for gloucester gloucester county and extreme eastern portions of mercer county and pulling out of trenton and monmouth and middlesex county in central new jersey. that storm is pulling away from the viewing area. that particular warning is up until 7:15. 6:47 a.m., looks like most of these warnings are up for another 15 minutes or so. we'll sit here and watch this area. the best place to be in a tornado event is in the basement or the center part of your house, obviously you do not want to be outdoors, you do not want
6:48 am
to be near windows because windows can shatter and glass can fly everywhere and cause damage and injuries. this is north central gloucester county and central portions of camden county and extreme southwestern portions ever burlington county up until 7:00 a.m. this morning. we have picked up rotating winds with the squall line that is pushing through, this is the remnants of what was once tropical storm cindy. right now they are talking about flying debris already being reported with the storm and flying debris can be very, very dangerous, think about that for a second if you're outdoors, you have winds 50, 60 miles per hour, picking things up shooting them like projectiles. you don't want to be outdoors, you want to be in the basement or the center part of your house. this storm is overtop williams

town and berlin and marlton lakes, 6:45 a.m. other locations include laurel springs and runnymede, glen door are door -- glendora area. move to an interior room on the lowest floor of your buildings. if you're outdoors in a mobile home move to the closest substantial shelter to protect yourself from flying debris. we'll watch this evolve. the tornado warning continues for north central gloucester county and central camden county and burlington county. we've had storms earlier this week that produced tornadoes. tornadoes happen in the this part of the viewing area, but to
6:50 am
see them a couple of times in a single week is rare. it shows how how unstable the pattern has been over the last few days, we had high dewpoints and tropical dewpoints, the air is uncomfortable. yesterday we had a severe round of thunderstorms. this was pulling through and we were not seeing severe weather, as things evolve what was originally a heavy rain event is turning into a severe weather event with powerful straight line winds and rotation within a couple of cells. here's about berlin right here,u can see how the cells are starting to bow outward like this. it will be in the indent area right here and this in through here you have to watch the radar closely because that where we typically start to see the rotation. this is the cell we're watching. i want to put a new storm track on it as it starts to outrun my
6:51 am
storm track. the storms are racing off to the east 40 miles per hour. let's go right here and i'm going to put another one on here and here's a look at some of the areas, again, that will see this storm pull over top of them shortly. sickleierville, andrew, new brooklyn area, williams town junction, 6:56 and florence, 6:57. this is a thunderstorm capable of producing tornadoic winds. -- tornadic winds. it's a squall line west of new york city all the way down into central portions of kent county in the state of delaware, pushing over the delaware bay region. the severe aspect of the storm is over gloucester and camden counties. we have another tornadoes warning up for extreme portions of mercer county even western monmouth county in central portions of new jersey until
6:52 am
7:15. that is a quick-moving storm cell that is pulling away from the viewing area. turnersville seeing heavy rain at this point, maybe a little bit of wind, but the main event is right here with the front end of the line. what we call a squall line, the leading edge of cooler air, the downdraft of a thunderstorm. think about when you watched a thunderstorm on the porch, you hear the thunders in the dance, after hearing the thunder you feel that gush of cooler air. this is what a gust front what we call a squall line. it's very powerful because of the instability that developed with this. we're seeing winds anywhere from 40 to 6 ho miles per -- 40 to 6r hour. glassboro, pitman, downpours being produced. the heaviest is pulling out of berlin.
6:53 am
this cell east of williams town this is the area we continue to watch as we pick up rotation, circulating winds getting close to the surface. the best place to be in a to remember -- in a tornado is in the basement. if you don't have a basement move to the center part of the house, put as many walls between you and the outside, don't be near windows or doors, they break and the glass shatters and causes injuries. the tornadoes warning is up until 7:00 a.m., about another 7 minutes or so, and we continue to watch the radars very, very closely, here's a look again, you see on the left-hand side of the screen, a look at the locations that will see the storm and the respective times on the left. 657 in florence, 6:59 a.m. cedar brook and braddock area at
6:54 am
7:00 a.m. this races to the east at 40 miles per hour. it is pulling out of berlin. it is this area here, let me go over and switch over so you can draw on this a little bit here. all right, there we go, let me switch this over to white. what i was talking about earlier what you're looking at, see how this boeing out a little bit right -- bow out a little bit right here. the straight line winds are pushing this cell ahead of the rest of the line because the straight line winds are so powerful. they start to move ahead and they kind of pull back like that in a little eddie. here's another one, this is not as pronounced earlier it was. the same thing is happening here as it starts to bow out here, it starts to pull back almost like a little eddie, you get the circulation in through here, the bottom portion of this top cell and the northern portion of this
6:55 am
southern cell where we could see the dangerous rotating winds. let's take that off for you here. what i am going to do is push this a little bit farther off to the south here there's the storm track right here. here's the leading edge of the squall line. tornado warnings, if you're just tubing in, we have two tornadoes warnings, the first one for central portions of camden county, north central gloucester county and southwestern burlington county up until 7:00 a.m. 6:26 a.m. when the national weather service started picking up rotation with the thunderstorm. it is a radar-indicated tornado warning. meaning the radar itself has picked up rotation strong enough to warrant the tornadoes warning. i have not seen report of a tornadoes on the ground as of yet, but the radar is picking up rotation close to the grounds that's why i'm advising everybody in the area to seek "shelter me rescue of the week" move iran doors to the basement or the center part of your
6:56 am
house, they have picked up flying debris which would indicate straight line wind damage or tornado damage. so they are talking about flying debris, again, mobile homes most is a -- vulnerable because they are not anchored down. we'll seeing strayed lined winds 8 -- straight line winds 60 miles per hour. this was a line of heavy rains we were not picking winds with this at 5:00 a.m. now it's starting to evolve into a severe weather event. heavy drenching downpours on the leading edge of the line. we're picking up powerful winds from new york city southward through cumberland county in south jersey and kent county in the state of delaware. as we get close to 7:00 a.m. those are the areas as you look at the storm window right here, the williams town junction area
6:57 am
right about thou, florence, 6:57 a.m. blue anchor, around 7:00 a.m. that's when the storm will be on top of you guys. what i will do, again this is starting to outrun my storm track, i'll put another one on here, what i will do first, i'll pull a little bit out to the east just like this, this is moving off to the east/northeast at 40 miles per hour. let's put it right there, 35, that's close right about there. all right, so here's a look at the areas pulling away from the williams town area, looms the worst is behind -- looks like the worst is behind you guys. cedarbrook, 6:58. 7:03 a.m. for winslow junction. i'll update things as i continue to read over information that
6:58 am
was issued by the national weather service here. i'll look for any updates. the warnings continue. until 7:00 a.m. it continues to be north central portions of gloucester county, central portions of camden county and then scream sowrng portions of -- extreme southern portions of burlington county. at warning for extreme portions of mercer county and northern monmouth county until 7:15 a.m., that cell is pushing away from the delaware and the lehigh valleys. we'll stay on top of this for a couple of minutes, tornado warnings continue. i'm starting to see things quiet down a little bit to the west. if we can get a confirmation, looks like this warning has now been discontinued which would be a good sign. let me see if i can confirm that. 6 8. i'll tell you what we'll do,
6:59 am
we'll sit on this, let's sit on this until 7:00 a.m., as i'm updating things, looks like they have just now taken down the tornadoes warning. we have two minutes until 7:00 let's see it through as the storm pushes through the blue anchor area. again it's formed into a dangerous squall line here, this is the remnants of tropical storm cindy pushed through a couple of days ago, wentz onshore in western portions of louisiana. surprisingly enough, the center of the storm has maintained its structure very well as it pushed through the highway and tennessee valleys over the last couple of days. the transformed from a tropic alformation to a mini squall line as it pushed through the keystone state and garden state. it's slicing camden county in half and pushing through eastern
7:00 am
portions of camden county now. the tornado warning remains in effect for another minute or so, it will be discontinued, so right now you see the leading edge of a powerful squall line in the process of pushing through blue anchor. there we go, we're at 7:00 a.m. i'll tell you what we'll do, we'll send it back over to you real quick and confirm a couple of things, get on the horn with accuweather. >> i know you're constantly monitoring the maps it's difficult for you to do this, you're doing a good job, as we watch this system, do we know, have there been any reports as you see from your computer system of any downed trees or any damage to property that we know of right now. >> reporter: that's what i am looking for, i have seen reports of flying debris, i have not seen any significant damage reports is of yet. doesn't mean it h
