temperature, really, different then yesterday, and i hear bob kelly, i want to you see this. this looks like slush. this is just like what we said , it is rock hard. we tried to dry over this. you don't make a dent with the multi ton vehicle. this is all rock hard that appears to be slush. driving in, you still have blowing snow, and it is covering main road, black horse pike, even atlantic city expressway, plowed probably hundreds of times, had a lot of snow covered, ice covered spots. so driving is treacherous. walking is treacherous. and having any exposed skinnies down right dangerous. this is life threatening cold, without a doubt. we are not hyping up, these temperatures, and these wind chills, what a difference from yesterday. we still have all of the snow, we still have the snow that isn't frozen rock hard, blowing, drifting every where.
4:06 am
so real rough out there you can see how far. that is our van. we wanted to come to the black horse pike to show you exit ramp to the down beach communities and that short walk where winds hitting us off this frozen bay has any exposed skin feel numb right away. we will wrap up, get out because my man on the camera has been working hardies telling me he has to get in that van real quick. guys, we will see you somewhere else in a half an hour if possible. >> try to get warm, steve. >> this is brutal. >> absolutely brutal. >> appreciate it, steve. snow emergency we told but for philadelphia was lifted last night as we told you city officials, offices are closed to today. you see little won having fun in the snow. city offices closed to day, trash truck, will still be coming around. plow trucks, they have been beginning to work making neighborhood drivable but be prepared for slick, icy streets. you have to clear the

hundreds of atlantic city seniors forced out in the cold after fire broke out in their apartment building, during the snowstorm, and now they are trying to figure out where to go next. >> i'm scared to death because i didn't know where my wife was. >> this is a bad one, went up to three alarms around 6:00 on the 200 block of north vermont street, smoke was seen pouring from the apartment, as people tried to escape from the fire, and balconies, a lot of people as well, dozens of people living there many are elderly or disabled were taking to a nearby building. there was a school. fire fighters say, bat telling one was really difficult in the wake of the blizzard. >> the blizzard was on the tail even. we were still experiencing, 30 , 35 miles an hour winds. we were still experiencing white out conditions. we have drifts, two or three or 4-foot drifts. when this call came in we had two engine stuck. >> fire officials say there was a total of 300 people put
4:09 am
into temporary housing, as for the cause fire fighters say they think it may have been a electrical fire. during peak of the storm tragedy struck, woman died after she just couldn't stop her suv from sliding through a regional rail train. accident happened just before 9:30 yesterday morning near red lion road in lower moreland township. two woman were on their way to work when the suv they were in slid down a steep incline and broke through gate and slam in the on coming septa train. the police chief the driver realized he was in trouble and told pass evening tore get out the driver jumped out but sadler her co-worker just could not get not time. >> the driver of the vehicle was able to exit before the crash, the passenger remained in the vehicle and was later found outside the vehicle along the tracks. >> obviously there was some snow, very bad weather, and at the time of the accident. >> police are withholding the names of the woman until family members are notified.
4:10 am
they do say that the driver of the suv has been released from the hospital and helping with the investigation. as for the train in one on board was injured in that accident. we have some important changes to tell but as you try to get back to work even though kid are off. septa regional rails is operating on a saturday schedule because of the very high winds which means fewer trains and normal friday so please plan accordingly. also, buses are operate nothing bala cynwyd line. delay after delay, we talk about this at the top of the show looking live at philadelphia international airport, the storm causing so many delays and cancellations there, so far about 50 flights have been scrapped for today, so supposed to fly you know what to do, check with your airline before checking to the airport. half of the yesterday's flights were cancelled because of the snow leaving thousands of people stranded, some families, certainly weren't taking any chance is here, we will meet a guy his name is john matthews. dropped his brother off but
4:11 am
sat in the cell phone lot just to make sure that his plane took off. >> flying back to the middle east. he is in the military. he has a half an hour before he gets on his plane but we don't know right now it is pretty heavy right now. >> here's something to keep in mind since cancellations are weather's fault most airlines say they are not responsible for your hotel room if you do get stuck overnight. it may be bad here but worse overnight no safe harbor >> have you ever seen anything quite like this, the streets of boston, flooded, with chunks of ice. we have a very important warning about something you may be eating, today, every day, a very popular lettuce that we are being told right now may to stay away from row main don't eat it. >> keep our eye back the road this morning, bob. >> grab your caesars salad 4:11. live look at the benny working your way toward philadelphia, all bridges will have reduced speed. look at the wind, giving the

4:15 am
nor'easter, we will track latest forecast coming up and around the area as you cane in the background with the lights dealing with the whipping wind >> thinks up in the boston area massachusetts they are rescuing this woman with a front end loader right there. they have been hit so hard by this storm, so you can bet here it is even worse there as we take very little comfort from. many people trapped by high waters that has swamped entire neighborhood they have had highest tides in decade. we have had people getting rescued right there and you can see vehicle drive through the streets. they are going through it. >> they are going through it as karen mentioned. boston a city with a river running right through it. yesterday's storm causing the around or to overflow sending water in the streets and things are only expected to get worse. once water recede city officials are worried that the streets will simply freeze over. my goodness. 4:15. lets check our weather and temperatures right now. we're down to 12, sue.
4:16 am
>> we have a wind chill advisory for the entire region until noon time tomorrow, so we will be dealing with brutal wind chills until then and then wind chill warning in the pocono mountains for unbelievably below zero temperatures because that is what we're talking about now that the snow is over. here's the storm, it is all the way up in northern maine, and nova scotia now and it is bothering them but it certainly left a lot of snow behind in some cases, looking at snow totals coming up. in the meantime wind speed 18 miles an hour sustained wind in philadelphia, even higher in wilmington, and we have some, wind gusts that are even higher then that. so, 28 miles an her wind gusts in atlantic city and 33 miles an hour in philadelphia. it is windy in wilmington. that makes it feel colder then it is and all wind chills are below zero just a matter of degrees below zero at this point but feels like 4b low in philadelphia, 23 below in the
4:17 am
mountains. is there your wind chill alert today with those feels like temperatures during the day, between five below and 15 below and we could get wind chills in the mountains as low as 30 below zero. so, yeah, just a matter of degrees of cold, and, as we take a look at that seven day forecast, there is some relief but then we have other weather on the way, we will give you seven day in a moment but mike masco is waiting toll tuesday so much more and experiencing it first hand. it is not easy to stand outside in that cold for any length of time. >> no, it is like pins hitting you in the face. >> that is a good analogy. >> i'll stay inside, all day. i 12 degrees, i think karen said, right on, single digits north and west. every time that breeze picks up wind chills go way down. sue mentioned we have advisory and rare wind chill warning up toward poconos.
4:18 am
we say rare because it is typically calm in the northern plains and cold tundra of the northern reaches of the u.s. but it is reaching here in the delaware valley. lets go to the maps. i want to show you feels like temperatures. this is all day to day feeling like 20 below zero toward the poconos, unfortunately, it gets worse before better, feeling like over 30 degrees, below zero, overnight tonight, into tomorrow morning, and feeling like 11 below as you get here in philadelphia. overnight temperatures, seven below zero the actual air temperature, six in town. we are making a run for railroaded low of 4 degrees, just set in the 1800 is here in philadelphia so what you should know is that the dangerous cold is in place for the next couple of days, it is record cold night, that could be record cold, daytime highs, and by the way, frostbite only takes 15 to 20 minutes to kick in so be very careful if you have to travel or be outside
4:19 am
for a, prolonged period of time. we will talk more weather in a little bit. bob, over to you. come on back inside we have hot chocolate for you. 4:19. on the road anything that looks wet is certainly potential of sitting there in the form of the black ice. once you get where you are going it is an obstacle course walking because sidewalks are slippery, we have to do hurdles to jump april cross the street. here's a live look at the schuylkill expressway right here near spring garden street no overnight construction road s are opened, passable just give yourself some extra time on those on and off ramps coming off of 42 hearsay at 50 t off ramp and patch of ice. we had a couple situations happen yesterday on 422, here's a live look at 422 near trooper road where there is a close another for couple hours , a five car pile up, somebody spun around, cars piled into it, another same scenario. it hit two troopers that were

4:35 am
stuff is not snow this is rock hard snow ice this guy tried to dig himself out. he said let me see if i can get out the front. then he tried to do that but he is mutt in. made a valiant effort but he cannot get out the front either. as we walk down the side street the main drag is bad you can imagine the side streets. people in south philadelphia are saying hey welcome to our world atlantic city. side streets people are plowed in too but at least snowplows made it down side street. remember i shed you the live shot the only yellow you will see here in atlantic city is the rear-view mirror. not only is this guy plowed in here he cannot make a living for a while because he is stuck in there for a while and again this is not just fluffy snow but rock hard ice and plus it has been pressure plowed begins this vehicle so
4:36 am
it has been even more concentrated. and falling and blowing. another side street, not plowed real well, people are stopped. we will wrap it up with this jit any and they have a slogan and this jitany guy won't be picking up any people for a while. his logan he will not live up to we keep you moving 24/7. my guess is, karen and thomas, he will be stuck here for 72, 21, until monday at least. thomas, i wanted to show you those vehicles on the snow emergency route little worse then getting a parking ticket. >> i agree 100 percent. >> there is our headlights, give my man jared that much credit for walking this far, this cold on this ice without falling. >> you are earning it today, quadruple full. >> you can hear crunch of the ice. 4:37. steve, thank you. most of the snow is off the

4:38 am
thing it is a friday so people can sort of, lay low, easing into the weekend because if you take a look at the ground there is still a lot of slush here on these back road. a number of the cars, some cleared but as we drove through manayunk, a lot of them still covered a sign that people did stay put yesterday, karen and thomas. >> okay, thank you. 4:38. imagine hundreds of seniors, and some people disabled were forced out in the cold after a fire broke out at their building in atlantic city right during the storm and now they are trying to figure out where they are going and living. >> i'm scared to death because i didn't know where my wife was. >> it was so scary. we could hear fire fighters and seeing some of the people forced outside in those cold temperatures. this is a three alarm fire. it happened around 6:00 o'clock last night. the scene is 200 block of north vermont avenue, and we even saw some of the smoke that was coming out of that building, people were outside on their balconies in the cold trying to escape that smoke
4:39 am
and these people, who are elderly disable were moved to another building or they put up a temporary shelter at a school across the street fighting this fire. there was a total of 300 people put in temporary housing. they think it is electrical that may have been the problem >> philadelphia kid you can see at bottom of the screen we have so many closings, and it will give us lots of kid home, so we want to see your snow pictures. take a selfie of your face and tell us what you are doing, show us what you are doing and use the #fox 29 snow and send us your locations, the pets, little ones what are you doing on this snow daytimes two.
