sun is already up for a change since we turned the clocks back which is fantastic. 70 in st. petersburg. mid 60s inland. real comfy start to the day. thing is that the humidity levels, they were brought down by the front that came through and they're hanging lower and they'll stay that way likely for a few days. honestly, just more fantastic weather. highs today around 84 degrees. >>vanessa: all right, dave. thank you. right now we're going to l we have heavy northbound delays after a reported crash near the intersection with bloomingdale. we're actually seeing the northbound delays stem from -- it's going to be closer to the shopping center just south of that intersection where they have the fresh market but that's the start of it all the way towards the elementary school so it's very, very heavy in the area. it's already congested area so make sure you're planning extra time here and if at all possible, it's hard. maybe if there's a good work around, avoid that area because
7:02 am
holiday area, we were actually reporting on the holiday area, a crash reported on 19. last report, that was near bone eat -- bonita but this one near flora. >>laura: we start with breaking news from overnight. the death of janet reno. she was the first woman to serve as u.s. attorney general. she was chosen by president clinton. reno held that job for eight years, longer than anyone else during the past to raid the branch dividian compound in waco, texas. it was a controversial move and also the armed seizure of 5-year-old elian gonzales. she came home to florida to run for governor. she lost in the primary. her goddaughter says that reno died from complications from parkinson's disease. janet reno was 78 years old. with just a day to go before the election, hillary clinton gets

7:04 am
harkening back to comey's original conclusion that clinton was careless about handling classified information but couldn't be prosecuted. the clinton team learned about it. >> he's confirmed the conclusions he reached in july and we're glad this matter is resolved. >> this election is a moment of reckoning. >>reporter: clinton didn't mention the development but it was no doubt a relief as her campaign prepared for star studded closing arguments. na schedule today, hitting florida, north carolina, pennsylvania and new hampshire and winding up in michigan tonight. it could be a critical state for both campaigns with president obama, former president clinton and hillary clinton herself heading there for one last push. now, one thing to keep in mind with this latest f.b.i. revelation, this came down just yesterday but already more than 40 million people have already made up their minds and voted

7:08 am
much people were able to raise for her, how they were able to make a difference in the last few years? >> mariah was diagnosed with lupus and it got hard for her to get out of bed and she was on chemo and steroids and then she had urine with blood in it so she got down really bad. and was about to die on us so we reached out to find another treatment for her because the treatment wasn't wor found out about fetal stem cells so we had talked to a doctor, several doctors and found out that yes, that was the way to go. >>reporter: and the community came together, helped raise thousands of dollars and now to know that it's not saving her. you're having to deal with something much more difficult. >> now we have to bury our baby girl.
7:09 am
out and taken away by somebody with anger issues. >>reporter: and to be clear before we let you go, any idea why she might have been on fourth street or is that a question you all are trying to answer, too? >> we're trying to answer it, too. we're trying to make sense of it. we know that she was on the island and then we got the call. >>reporter: thank you for your time and strength. i know you're going through a lot right now. manatee county sheriff if you have any information, anything that maybe you saw something or heard something and you haven't reported it, you're encouraged to reach out to the manatee county sheriff's office. you can also report information aonymously by reaching out to crime stoppers. laura, back to you. >>laura: we hope they have some answers sooner rather than later. thank you. a murder suspect surrenders after calling police from the treasure island beach. when officers got there, he told

erosion from hurricane matthew last month. they spent almost $4 million to fix it. now, fortunately, florida didn't suffer a direct hit from the hurricane. it kept offshore hurricane season. comes to an end at the end of this month. i'm telling you, matthew was such a strong storm and thankfully it did stay offshore because if that had made a direct hit where it did hit would have loo different. so hey, i'm just trying to get used to this sun coming up earlier. i love it because you're with us friday at this time, it was still dark out. i couldn't show you the camera but now i can because the sun came up an hour earlier today. you may not have noticed it yesterday because you slept in a little bit but today, beautiful. 69 degrees there with that east wind at 10 miles per hour. another couple of cameras that i want to show you. the u.s.f. marine science

louisiana and alabama and mississippi but i don't think it's going to come close enough ta really give us any rain which is typical for november because it is the driest month of the year. what we'll do the middle of the week as this trough gets in the middle of the gulf will increase a little cloud cover, maybe throw a few sprinkles in there and that's really going to be about it. in the meantime, clouds and sun, clouds and sun. nice weather. like it. 48 for a high temperature today. tonight the overnight low temperatures are rht degrees. if you're like me yesterday, when that sun went down, you're like, wait. what time is it? took you by surprise. tonight sun sets at 5:41. wow. and then 82 for a high temperature tomorrow. clouds, sunshine and just more loveliness in general. if you're boating, coastal waters, a moderate chop is expected. if you're going well offshore, it will be breezy and choppy out

7:28 am
we have no official reports of incidents here. we're looking into whether there's something here unreported but it is looking a bit slow. 16 miles an hour is the slowest point here in the area i just mentioned. 54 to hutchinson where most of the delays are should take about 20 minutes or so. make sure you're leaving early here. we'll check in on some other majors, looking heavy southbound 275 coming to the interchange from 75. we'll take you about 38 minutes and 22 is the time southbound 75 between the same junction with >>laura: all right. thank you. an unwelcome guest. the pinellas county woman who saw a monkey in her backyard and they took a picture of it. >>russell: there's a long line to see donald trump today. ken is covering that story for us this morning. >>reporter: good morning. there are hundreds of trump supporters here. some actually camped out overnight to see the man they

7:33 am
even though the doors won't open this morning for the general public, for several more hours. these folks had to camp out. they're talking politics and everything else under the sun. just waiting it out to see trump. one guy told me it was well worth it because he wanted a front row seat to history. he wants to be close to the man who could be the next president of the united states. it's certainly been a very, very colorful horse race and a close one. a new poll says that clinton leads by a few points. 44% to trump's 43%. another poll the cnn poll of polls puts clinton at 46%, trump at 43%. we're talking head and head, very close. but remember, no matter what the general populous votes for, we're talking about the electoral college, the magic number there as you probably know is 290. that's what you have to get to be the president of the united states. examine that's a number we're all going to be watching for
7:34 am
>>russell: talk later. thank you. >>laura: a long list of celebrities say they will leave the country if donald trump becomes president. singers miliary virus and cher, george lopez to name a few. a lot of other people are also making plans to leave if their candidate does not win tomorrow. >>jennifer: that's right. the race for the white house has some people searching for ways to race out of the country. it's temporary for most of them. canada and mexico are destinations. >> i think every election cycle you hear people talking about if their candidate doesn't win, they're leaving. >>jennifer: every four to eight years, many americans say they're leaving the country if their vote isn't heard on election day. >> we see people putting money where their mouth is. >>jennifer: travel to canada spiking 40% recently. and after the most recent presidential debate, inquiries

international destination and, you know, particularly after brexit, we saw a huge increase in demand there and it's amazing how far your money goes. paris, rome are another top european destinations for us. we're seeing good, strong demand to those places and you look at air fares, they're down with oil being cheap and the whole travel package is quite a good value to go long haul right now. >>jennifer: if you're serious about fleeing the scene after the election, pay attention to your flight plan. a new sur portland, san diego, salt lake city and honolulu topping the list of best airports in the u.s. as for the worst -- >> unfortunately for new yorkers, new york, la guardia, newark and jfk, they're overcrowded, air traffic control system is over capacity so even the slightest rain shower can throw things out of control in new york city. and also in the great lakes midwest, chicago o'hare and

7:37 am
watching tv and here comes on the fence, i thought it was a large cat until i saw that it was like a monkey. like oh, my god. it was a monkey. beautiful, beautiful, very slow, just crawling, walking, whatever, on fence. >>russell: monkey kept to itself and then wandered away. it's a chance it's the monkey that's been seen running loose in hernando and pasco. if you catch it. leave that to the experts. >>dave: in sports, the bucs are halfway through the season. three wins, five losses so far. now they'll return to practice this week after losing thursday night 43-28. now, the bucs are hoping that mike evans will be able to play on sunday. of course, he's in the nfl concussion protocol after taking a vicious hit in the loss to atlanta. he ever ans has eight touchdowns
7:38 am
derek koetter has seen a lot of maturity from his star wide receiver. >> mike has really got his temper under control. mike is really locked in to what he needs to do, whether it's a penalty called on him or a penalty he thinks should have been called on them or jameis overthrows him or mike going over the middle. mike has really learned to move on and play the next play. and you can see it in how he's running his routes. he's think that's mike's biggest area of improvement. and for as good of a game as he had, i'm sure mike will be the first to admit that he probably should have had a couple more. >>dave: the bucs play a third straight game at home this sunday against the bears. then they travel to kansas city to play the chiefs the week after that. then back home against the seahawks. bucs will fly across country for a game in san diego the

7:44 am
day so it's really about the humidity levels and over the course of the next few days, 50s for dew points, 60 degrees for a dew point, right through tuesday into wednesday and thursday. so there's no real mugginess coming at us. we're going to stay just a shade below moderate humidity. how does that sound? and temperatures in the mid 80s the next couple of afternoons. can't complain. the weather has been fantastic. the thing that got you was the that hour early or the sunrise this morning. it was like 84 degrees. the sunrise was at 6:46. actually, if we hadn't turned the clocks at all, sun would be coming up right now. 64 degrees with mostly clear skies, mild conditions. tonight clouds, sunshine and lovely tomorrow with a high of 82. east winds at 15 knots, seas running two to three feet. got a moderate chop for boaters, coastal waters and water
