the humid side. it really gets cranking as we head into the workweek. i'll time out the arrival coming up in the first alert seven-day. our top story, police are investigating yet another tragedy in the shaw neighborhood in d. c. the most recent violence happened yesterday when a graduate of american university was gunned down in broad daylight, and now police are searching for a suspect this morning. surae chinn joins us live with more on what we know so far in the investigation. >> no arrests have been made so far. there is a $25,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction. meanwhile, residents here are on edge. they're concerned about the recent violence that has happened this summer. last week just last week there was a triple shooting outside of the kennedy rec center just a few blocks from where we're standing. an suv riddled with bullet holes, and there are reminders of previous violence and
tragedies with multiple makeshift memorials nearby. the victim, meanwhile has been identified in this most recent shooting last night as 23-year- old matthew schlonski. it happened in the 1800 block of 7th street outside shaw howard university metro station. police are still here looking over the scene. in northwest surae chinn wusa9. thank you. one person has died in a car accident along the suitland parkway this morning. it happened a little bit before 1 a.m. near meadow view drive on the parkway. three people were in the car when it crashed into another vehicle. the victim died at the hospital a short time later. one person is in critical condition. a third person is in stable condition. we've learned that the driver of the other car is okay. the cause of the crash, though, is still being investigated. in china, teams are scrambling to clear a dangerous chemical contamination in the port of tianjin that happened last week.
the death toll from explosions and fire now stands at 112. hundreds of people were injured. 85 firefighters and ten others are missing following that incident that happened on wednesday. authorities say the site contained several hundred tons of sodium cyanide. two construction workers are dead after falling from the bucket of a lift machine. it happened just before 8 a.m. yesterday in ellicott city maryland. the men both worked for brothers construction framing incorporated. they were taken to the hospital where they died a short time later. the cause of that accident is still under investigation. they say it sounded liked a bomb went off. imagine sleeping in your bed and a car slams into your house. the family in northeast d. c. was pretty shaken when the vehicle hit their home on 44th street early yesterday morning. >> we're sleeping and we just had a sound like a bomb shell. all the alarm go off so we rush out to see, and we find out a
car run into our house. >> no one was hurt. police are still looking for the driver of that car. the republican and democratic front runners for president brought their campaigns to iowa yesterday at their state fair. >> donald trump and hillary clinton drew the crowds greeting patrons, answering questions. wendy gillette has the details. >> donald trump arrived in style at the iowa state fair. then took questions. he criticized his fellow republican candidate jeb bush for a comment he made friday about isis and what the u.s. needs to do in iraq to control the terrorist group. >> jeb bush is a puppet to his donors. he has lobbyists. i think it may be one of the dumbest statements i've ever heard. >> trump promised to unveil his first policy proposal of his campaign saying he would outline his plans on immigration sunday. he also answered a question about the e-mail controversy
and hillary clinton. >> she's got a lot of problems with the e-mail situation. that's a big problem. if you look at general petraeus he had a tiny fraction of what he's got going and they destroyed his life virtually. >> clinton also addressed the issue of her using a private server while she was secretary of state during her stop at the fair saturday morning. >> i never sent classified material on my e-mail and i never received any that was marked classified. >> clinton recently turned over the server to the fbi but the data and her e-mails had been wiped clean. wendy gillette for cbs news. >> many of the other candidates who are running for president are also making appearances this weekend at the iowa state fair. long-time civil rights activist julian bond has died. bond died saturday night in florida after a brief illness. the tennessee native was considered an icon of the 1960s civil rights movement.

concern out west as dry conditions hamper the efforts to put out wildfires. >> plus why earlier school start times and dates may hinder your child's education. >> we're going to take a look at the weather for the montgomery county fair. we showed you the prince william county fair as well earlier. it is going to be warm but pleasant. gaithersburg not quite as warm. 89 degrees at 3:00, 82 at 8. make sure you have that sunscreen and a bottle of water handy as you head to the fairgrounds. stay with us. we'll be right back.
it's hot around here but triple digits are expected in arizona and parts of southern california as heat continues to take a big toll out west. >> these are record breaking temperatures. as carter evans reports it's making it difficult for firefighters battling all kinds of fires throughout the region. >> august in phoenix is not supposed to be comfortable but even those used to the sweltering temperatures are not used to this. >> feels like i'm back underneath a hair drier all the time. >> when the mercury hit 117 degrees friday at phoenix sky harbor airport, it didn't just
break a record for the day. it tied the city's hottest temperature recorded in august. another record was broken overnight, the highest low temperature. it never got below 93 degrees. in california, palm springs also hit 117. and there's no relief through the weekend, which is proving especially challenging for firefighters now battling two new fires, one ignited by a car accident on a los angeles freeway, another 30 miles east of l. a. continues to rage out of control. at least two cabins have burned. strong winds have and low humidity could be disastrous says volunteer firefighter mike peckner. >> the behavior in the sierra and the lowlands of california is extreme. i'd call it nuts. we're seeing spreads of 1,000 acres an hour. something we've never seen before. >> the fire danger is made
worse by the state's punishing four-year drought. hundreds of thousands have fled to the beach and to public pools including greg kemsley and his son. >> it's too hot. nobody wants to do anything at home. we just come here and cool off. >> brutal. 117, 120. we've been in a stretch of 90- degree days. that's going to stick around for a while. fortunately until now the humidity has not been an issue. >> today is the first day you're going to notice that humidity once again. as we head into monday the humidity becomes more uncomfortable. yes, the heat wave continues today. it's only day two of it, but, yeah, you will notice it. let's take a look outside with the michael & son weather cam at the day planner. temperatures heading into the 90s. it will be 87 degrees at noon, tons of sunshine, 91 at 5:00. that's dropping down from a high temperature of 93 degrees which we'll reach in the mid afternoon. dew point 63.
we have that higher relative humidity right now than we did yesterday at this time when the dew points were still in the 50s. right now it is 63 degrees in germantown, 64 in love itsville and 64 at andrews. you see those showers and maybe even a rumble of thunder that will pop up in the southern shenandoah valley not affecting us in the immediate metro. you probably won't see that activity further north towards martinsburg and hagerstown. there is that potential for a pop-up shower and storm in the mountains today. tomorrow we could see that activity and maybe something sneaking across the blue ridge. i do have in that chance for an isolated storm for your monday forecast. then we increase that chance for showers and storms as we head into tuesday. the feels like forecast, this is becoming a factor once again. look at these feels like temperatures at the peak of it during the day today. it will feel like 94 in winchester and martinsburg, 97 in leesburg, 94 in downtown
washington and 95 in fredericksburg. it will feel warm even just when you're stepping out the door tomorrow morning. it's going to feel close to 90 degrees by 10 a.m. in much of the area and the real feel will be in the mid to upper 90s on monday as that dew point continues to head towards 70 degrees. here's a look at the three-day forecast. we're keeping those green weather alerts. we don't have any weather that's really going to affect your travel plans. it looks like you should still be able to take kids to sports practices. 93 degrees today. make sure the kids have plenty of water as they're heading out the door. 94 degrees on monday with that isolated storm chance. a better chance for a storm on tuesday, a high of 92 degrees. the heat wave will become official tomorrow when we hit that 90 degrees mark. just 90 degrees on wednesday and thursday, but that's still enough to keep the heat wave going. a better chance for showers and storms on both of those days, a cold front moves through on thursday. that will bring us drier air on friday, but it won't necessarily be cool with a high of 88 degrees.
mike back to you. thank you erica. today in our family health alert, the first school bells will be ringing before you know it. is it possible, though, for school to start too early. a recent cdc report seems to show the answer is yes. andrea roane tells us why. >> we see a lot of people who come in to do back to school physicals. >> physicals and checkups are an important part of preparing your child. there are other ways to give an extra boost towards healthy living. >> you have to roll that one out slowly. >> rachel spiegel says lack of sleep hinders the education process for student of all ages. >> kids don't learn as well. their brains don't respond as well to new information. they are more likely to get sick. >> establish a sleep schedule. a normal rest cycle really goes off track during the summer.
>> start a nutrition schedule with a hearty breakfast. this is especially important to help your child focus throughout the day. >> put some protein in that, make sure they have cashes so they have energy that will last to lunchtime. >> get a head start on back to school jitters. it's natural for children to have anxiety. it's a great idea to visit school early, show your child the classroom and meet the teacher. >> if you know someone in the neighborhood who's going to be in the school get your kid connected with the other kid so they have friendly familiar faces so they're more prepared and less nervous. could it be the sunscreen of the future, drinkable sunscreen, really? the product is called uvo is made of vitamins. it's currently in preliminary trials. those trials showed it took 40% more sun exposure to create a sunburn after people drank uvo. dermatologists say those trials promote more hype than science.
>> there is no spf rating for these products. if you were to rate them, they would probably have an spf of less than 2, so they're not providing much sun protection. >> now it's important to remember products like these are considered dietary supplements, and they are not regulated by the fda. many younger women may be dealing with pelvic pain that is not being treated. while most women are diagnosed with conditions, the national institutes of health studty found that nearly 30% had not been diagnosed at all with pelvic conditions. researchers say doctors should ask women if they're having pain and women should tell their doctors if they are. . trans fats are linked to higher risk of death and heart disease. that's according to a new study in the british medical journal, but there's new information. trans fats are found in margarines, snack foods, packaged baked goods, the same
link was not found for saturated fats which come from butter, meat, milk and salmon. so i guess there's some good news there. use butter instead of margarine if you need something. >> sounds good to me. >> details you need to make sure you get there. >> what's up everybody. we've got a great sports sunday for you. the final round of the pga championship is right here on wusa9. we'll also which neck on the nats who are struggling on the west coast right now against the giants. we'll see if they can salvage anything on that road trip. >> and then we'll wrap everything up at 11:35. game on overtime and of course every cup has a story. dunkin' k-cup packs in my life were a good fit. a single serving for myself, it's pretty special. it is like having a dunkin' store in my home
dunkin' has a dark roast coffee that's deliciously roasted just right for a bold start and smooth finish that's never bitter. put down the dark roast you've been putting up with and reach for the one you deserve. welcome back, face the nation is coming up later this morning right here on wusa9, and one of the first signs the campaign season is ramping up. the candidates are on the soap box at the iowa state fair. john dickerson joins us now with a preview. can anyone steal the spotlight from donald trump? >> good morning mike. they've got to bring a helicopter if they're going to do it. he brought his to the iowa state fair. that was a new ride at the fair. i think stealing the spotlight is unlikely to work, but i think if they kind of stick to their plan and hope that he
burns his spotlight out that it's probably the smarter approach. >> i've talked to some reporters who travel with trump and they say he's a lot more than a side show. they say he's pretty well versed on the issues. do you get that sense? >> yes, i mean he pays attention to the issues. he made the case that that's not what voters care about either. they want somebody they think can get the job done and sort of have a loose idea of what that job is and they'll hand the reigns over to the president. he's well versed enough for the target he's trying to hit with voters. >> former maryland governor martin o'malley is barely getting in the national conversation when it comes to the democrats. what's he going to have to do to get traction? >> he's going to have to hope hillary clinton continues to stumble and hope voters will turn to him as they sometimes do in campaigns, take a second
look at a candidate and he'll be ready for his moment when they take that second look. >> do you think vice president joe biden enters the race for a third time? >> it's hard to tell. it's clear he's looking at the race. there are a lot of hurdles in front of him. part of this is emotional thinking about his son who passed away and the legacy of his career and his son asked him to run, beau biden, so there is an emotional component to this that makes it very hard for even his close friends to predict what he's going to do. >> and what do you think of hillary clinton's strategy when it comes to brushing off the e- mail and benghazi issue. you saw her do that yesterday. >> that's a high risk strategy. the fact that the fbi is now involved removes it from being a partisan issue. she's treating it as if it's a pure partisan witch hunt and that's a familiar tactic from her and the clintons, both of them, but once the fbi gets involved it removes it from that partisan sphere and
obviously she took it seriously enough to hand over her server. on one hand taking it seriously and on the other hand making light is a confusing message. >> don't miss john on face the nation at 10:30 right here on wusa9. good times and hot weather for the first full day on the montgomery county fair. if you're looking for great food, amusement rides and games, the fair is the place to be. >> and when you come to the fair, you're going to eat the food here, you're going to go on the rides and you're going to see the animals. we have great new foods that are here. we have a crispy cream burgerrer, a diabetic funnel cake, cotton candy, corn dog, grilled cheese sandwiches, you name it. we got it. >> the fair is open every day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. we'll have more information about tickets and parking on our website wusa9. what police intend to do following a string of shootings in northwest d. c. that and more coming up at 8. we'll be
