5:00 pm
freezing rain. that's what accumulates on the limbs and power lines and knocks out power. so next winter storm monday, by the morning commute, timing not changing much. ice storm not an issue. we see very little freezing rain thankfully. more sleet than freezing rain is good, ain't great. time frame 5 a.m. to about 8 p.m. on monday. you have time to do some stuff. if you're going out tonight, it's cold but dry, only 30 in chevy chase, 28 in rockville, leesburg and 27 in fairfax. tonight no winds, but bundle up. we'll come back with some good news about the weekend. we are watching carefully how people responsible for keeping the power on and the roads clear are preparing for the next blast. >> reporter: the incoming weather has utilities on alert and the no. up with word they are fearing most is ice. one example of the power outage
5:01 pm
mayhem caused by ice played out february 5th in frederick county, maryland. some went without electricity for four days. potomac edison power reported today the company has been holding weather watching conference calls since wednesday. crews have been alerted and decisions on how to deploy them may come as early as tomorrow. pepco is also watching the weather forecasts saying the utility is now prepared for the worst of the predictions with 150 company linemen and 450 contractors currently available if needed. good news from dominion power saying the utility there is anticipating minimal operational impact in northern virginia. the utility remains on stand-by and watching carefully. meanwhile maryland's emergency management agency tweeted today a warning for late weekend weather and reminders to be prepared for possible power problems by stocking up on batteries, canned food and bottled water. one thing that is distinguishing this incoming storm is how much the forecasts have been changing day to day. as one utility executive put it
5:02 pm
to me, it is too early to put a stake in thground but critical decisions will start getting made within the next 24 hours. scott broom, wusa9. >> coming up at 6:00 scott talked to the people responsible for making sure maryland's roads are ready for the storm. wusa9 news will start at 4:30 a.m. on monday to have all the news, weather and traffic information you need about the potentially nasty weather. we will be here as well all day if it gets to be a red alert day. when bad weather hits, the wusa9 news ipad appear is the perfect weather companion with live radar and traffic map and accidents plus the all latest weather-related closings. you can download the wusa9 ipad app from the app store for free. new information on the firefighters who refused to help a man who ultimately died outside a firehouse.
5:03 pm
the deputy mayor released the internal affairs report on the incident, but what the mayor's office failed to say was that it was not the entire report. surae chinn joins us now with nor on what she learned today -- more on what me and learned today and what you were able to see -- more on what she learned today and what you were able to see. >> reporter: it's 13 pages long, but the full report is 125 plus pages long and the one made public omitted certain actions of the rookie firefighter. he was just two weeks on the job and according to the full report, he failed to ring the firehouse bell. it also said that he was on desk watch and that he was afraid to leave his post. this all sends a question about the cadet program and is the program actually preparing these firefighters or these budding firefighters in these types of situations? >> i think it is working. i've been to the graduation.
5:04 pm
we're talking about one person. >> reporter: mayor vincent gray says one bad decision by a rooky out of dozens of others shouldn't tarnish the cadet program. that rookie failed to respond along with four other firefighters. the 19-year-old was worried about leaving his desk watch post at engine 26 and failed to ring the firehouse bell when 77- year-old cecil mills collapsed across the street. >> why something that simple was omitted from the report? >> the question is notice. you ring the bell to give notice. he gave notice. he called over the loudspeaker. to me it didn't seem like it was jermaine. >> reporter: but who is to say other rookies might have responded the same way? you have confidence in the cadet program? >> absolutely. some of our finest members have gone through that program. it allows district high school students to come into the agency. did he make a mistake? yes. he should have rung the bell. >> reporter: the d.c. cadet program has run into problems through the decades.
5:05 pm
in 1992 some cadets did not meet physical standards and the chief made the class go through training again. several years ago chief dennis ruben suspended the program after finding some of his cadet says were involved in criminal behavior. a common denominator of those getting in trouble forced the program to end until chief ken ellerbe made it his top priority to reinstate the program in 2011. council member tommy wells hasn't even received a copy of the full report as public safety chair. >> there was information that apparently they did not share th the committee that's in the mills report. that's very disappointing. it's a lack of transparency and it really breaches faith with the community that we is everybody. over the last several days the united states has been responding to events as they unfold in ukraine. throughout this crisis we have been very clear about one fundamental principle. the ukrainian people deserve
5:06 pm
the opportunity to determine their own future. together with our european allies we have urged an end to the violence and encouraged ukrainians to pursue a course in which they've stablized their country, forge a broad based government and move to elections this spring. i also spoke several days ago with president putin and my administration has been in daily communication with russian officials and we've made clear that they can be part of an international community's effort to support the stability and success of a united ukraine going forward which is not only in the interest of the people of ukraine and the international community, but also in russia's interests. however, we are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside of ukraine. russia has a historic relationship with ukraine including cultural and economic ties and a military facility in
5:07 pm
crimea but any violation of ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destablizing which is not in the interest of ukraine, russia or europe. it would represent a profound interference in matters that must be determined by the ukrainian people. it would be a clear violation of russia's commitment to respect the independence and sovereignty and borders of ukraine and of international laws. just days after the world came to russia for the olympic games that would invite the condemnation of nation around the world and indeed the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. the events of the past several months remind us of how difficult democracy can be in a country with deep divisions, but the ukrainian people have also reminded us that human beings have a universal right to determine their own future. right now the situation remains
5:08 pm
very fluid. vice president biden just spoke with the prime minister of ukraine to assure him that in this difficult moment the united states supports his government's efforts and stands for the sovereignty, territorial integrity and democratic future of ukraine. i also commend the ukrainian government's restraint and its commitment to uphold its international obligations. we will continue to coordinate closely with our european allies. we will continue to communicate directly with the russian government and we will continue to keep all of you in the press corps and the american people informed as events develop. thanks very much. >> and you've been listening to the president address the crisis in the ukraine saying he is deeply concerned by the reports that there have been russian military movements in the ukraine and that, of course, the u.s. stands with the ukrainian people. >> and the international community according to the
5:09 pm
president. at this point what we know right now that is according to sources inside ukraine, russian military helicopters and transport planes have entered that country. currently two of their main airports in crimea are now reportedly captured by russian armed forces at this point. >> we'll talk more about that coming up a little later on in the show. now breaking news on the death of phillip seymour off man. the medical examiner just announced a toxic mix of drugs were found in his system including among them heroin, cocaine and amphetamines. ultimately the death was ruled an accident. hon ffmawas found dead in his new york city apartment with a syringe in his arm on february 2nd. police now identified a teenager gunned down in d.c. jonathan adams was 17 years old, a student of beleau high found shot to death on halle
5:10 pm
terrace southeast just a few blocks from beleau. >> i'm saying that's southeast d.c. today. >> so far police have not made any arrests. they don't know what the motive could have possibly been in this case. a reward of up to $25,000 is being offered to help solve it. a samoan woman studying to become a nun pleaded guilty to killing her newborn son at a convent. investigators say sosefina amoa killed her newborn back in october and pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter today and will be sentenced in may. only on wusa9 a disabled waldorf woman is fighting her family's eviction tonight even as she head back to the hospital for complications from back surgery. madeline lane is in such fragile health even the homeless shelter won't take her she says. bruce leshan reports she is pleading for help. >> can you pull my arm out first, this one, the right one?
5:11 pm
>> reporter: 54-year-old madeline lane still has an open wound from surgery to fuse part of her spine, surgery that was supposed to get her back on her feet. >> 23 years of living with pain every day. you wake up with it. you go to sleep with it. >> reporter: but now madeline, her 13-year-old son charles and her home health aide are struggling with another kind of pain. her land lady wants to kick her out of her three-bedroom waldorf townhouse. >> i haven't slept in five nights. i haven't eaten in five days because i'm worried about my minor son who is 13 and myself being put out in the streets. >> reporter: charles county calls it a sad situation, says it is willing to help her keep paying the rent with section 8 funds, but this all may have started because her home health aide is living in the house to provide her the necessary 24
5:12 pm
hour care. >> the only reason why i'm here is because she needs my help. if i wasn't here, she would not be able to do anything. >> if i can't walk, if i can't cook for my son, if i can't cook for myself, if i can't go to the bathroom by myself, then i'm not entitled to have home health aides? >> reporter: i spoke briefly on the phone for the land lady joanne jarvis who declined to explain why she felt she had to evict the family right now. mad lynn says no home -- madeline says no homeless shelter will take her and her son because of her fragile state. she is now headed back to the hospital because she's lost feeling in her leg and she just hopes her belongings will still be here when she returns. >> not being able to go outside. >> reporter: in waldorf bruce leshan, wusa9. >> the land lady has yet to file any of the legal eviction paperwork with the tenant
5:13 pm
landlord court. madeline says she can't kick her out without a court order but fears it will happen anyway. she needs a couple more months to figure out how to move in with her daughter in philadelphia. park too close to a hydrant or stop sign and there's a good chance that will cost you, but how mad would you be if you got a ticket for something you didn't even know was illegal? at 5:30 some obscure road rules that could cost you some serious cash. >> u.s. sending a message to russia on the escalating tension in the ukraine. we just heard from the president. coming up we'll talk to face the nation's bob schieffer. >> temperatures today 20 degrees below average. we'll give you temperatures now if you're going out, bundle up, no wind chills, 209 downtown, 30 in leesburg -- 29 downtown, 30 in leesburg, 28 in manassas. coming back we have good news about the winter storm, a little silver lining.
5:14 pm
5:15 pm
5:16 pm
pinpointing exactly when weather will hit your neighborhood hours before it happens, wusa9 first alert weather. >> right now on wusa9 their storm is our storm. we told you this a few minutes go about how the system is dumping huge amounts of rain on california. it's going to bring us ice and snow monday, fast moving floodwaters leaving some homeless people stranded near dodgers stadium. other parts of the state are getting ready for mudslides. some areas have seen up to 2 feet of snow in the mountains above about 5,500 feet. meteorologist erica grow joins me now. we talked about how this is a difficult forecast because of all the precipitation types. we're sort of less worried about freezing rain. let's go through what all the types are. >> first off we'll look at what you can expect as we head into monday morning. this storm will make its way toward us and overspread basically the entire d.c. metro area with an icy mix. the snow line should be further north and the rain line further
5:17 pm
south. as we head into the afternoon, everything will shift off to the east and the wrap around moisture on the backside of this storm system looks to be mostly snow. so in your backyard you could see all four different types of precipitation that are possible out of this type of event. so if you have all snow, it means the snowflakes fell from the clouds all the way to the ground without any change happening in melting or freezing, but the transition happens when you mix in some warmer air. so if it's all warm until you get to the ground, then it's just rain. most precipitation starts out as snow and then melts before it hits the ground. sleet is where you get the mixture of both. the snow melts when it hits that air that the above the freezing mark and then it freezes again. so you have tiny little droplets of just frozen raindrops. if you have freezing rain, that means the cold air is much shallower, closer to the surface.
5:18 pm
so showing this description in a slightly different way with a little bit of vertical profile here, if we have snow, it means the temperature is below freezing all the way from cloud to ground, but if you have sleet, then that means that you have a little wedge of warmer air mixed in there. so it would be snow and then rain and then the sleet pellets as it hits the ground, but the freezing rain is when you have more warm air in there and the cold air is shallower closer to the ground, so the raindrops don't have an opportunity to freeze before making contact with surfaces. that's when you see the icy coating on tree branches. sleet will look more like this. it can sometimes look like stye stye -- styrofoam. with more on this approaching storm, here's topper. >> let's start with a live look outside, our live michael and son weather cam, 29 right now,
5:19 pm
dew point 8 below 0, relative humidity outside 20%, inside about 6%. that's about as dry as you get. here is the storm, a lot of rain across california, snow in higher elevations. it's going to move quickly on a more southerly track which means colder air for us which is good which means less freezing rain and less sleet. so complicated forecast. sunday will be in the 50s. that's part of the problem. cold air is moving in. it's not already in place. right now we think 16% rain, 23% sland 60% snow. that's actually good. notice there's no freezing rain in there. accumulation difficult because of this mix. right now we'll say 1 to 2 inches of sleet possible and 2 to 4 inches or more of snow possible as we go through the day monday. temperatures, 29 chevy chase, 28 reston, 27 fairfax, even 30 out toward leesburg, but most folks in the 20s this hour, no wind chills to worry about. not quite as cold tonight, no
5:20 pm
wind and it's dry, moderating temperatures all weekend. 40s on saturday, 50s on sunday. get outside, bike, take a hike. you can do it because monday will be a tough day. temperatures will plummet monday. so low 20s to start on saturday, upper 20s by 9:00, 11:00 we're 36 and 42 seems pretty nice, doesn't it, with partly sunny skies by 1:00. next three days milder, late shower sunday but 53 and temps plummet monday, ice and snow, yellow alert. may have to make that a red alert before the end of the weekend. next seven days, stays cold, mid-30s on tuesday, back in the 40s wednesday and thursday and friday another system tries to develop off the coast, models all over the place with this particular system. so we'll say rain and/or snow thursday night or it could stay to our south and east. some good news. less freezing rain. that means we'll have power more than likely, which is good, and right now the
5:21 pm
heaviest concentration will be snow. >> but will the kids be in school or delayed? >> perhaps no school at all. >> i'm so done with mr. winter. >> we want to remind everyone if we do have severe weather monday, the wusa9 help desk will be up and rubbing to answer your questions and -- running to answer your questions and concerns and we'll have a streaming webcast on wusa9. >> that's right. and on your mobile app. >> 9:00 to 10:00 on sunday if you want a break from the oscars, you can watch erica and me on the web. then we're talking specifics by then. coming up a new painkiller about to hit the market and there are concerns addicts could abuse that drug. >> plus do you or someone you know have a tattoo you wish you lent gotten? there's a brand-new -- hadn't
