uncovering a troubling pattern of complaints not being investigated by a state agency overseeing daycares and school programs. >> this comes a day after investigative reporter erik rasmussen showed you how the department of early education and care was doing a lot of its investigating over the phone. as you're about to see many complaints reported to eec were never assigned to an investigator. a daycare in hingham the latest to face allegations of abusing children some less than a year old.
locked aggressively to be put to sleep. >> reporter: while d.c.f. looks into the allegations of abuse another state agency early education and care is responsible for investigating the daycare's operations. yet when fox 25 investigates looked at investigation reports of other school programs in the last two years, they revealed e.e.c. investigateors doing much of their work via phone rather than visiting in person. >> right now is that enough to keep kids safe? >> we are doing our >> reporter: e.e.c. commissioner tom weber recently told state lawmakers he has just five investigators to oversee some 9,000 programs. new numbers uncovered by fox 25 investigates paint an even more troubling picture. around metro boston, out of 250 complaints received by e.e.c. since july, just 33 were ever assigned to an investigator. the ratio even worse less than 10% of cases assigned to investigators in worster
after this hearing on beacon hill last week, state rep paul tucker told us more needs to be done. >> there's no substitute for actually being there and seeing it and giving people the opportunity one on one to be able to speak with an investigator. >> erik rasmussen reporting. no one with e.e.c. was available to talk to us on camera about the new numbers we uncovered. but the agency says each incident can result in multiple complaints and it assigns investigators based upon the severity of the allegations. manchester, new hampshire, evacuated today when a bad smell made several students sick. skyfox was over west high school this morning the students were moved to the football field. we've now learned around 30 students and staff reported feeling numbers that and having headaches. two were sent to the hospital. the school later learned the smell stemmed from a cleaner used in the gym. students were allowed back inside the building around 1:00 this afternoon. new studies show massachusetts ranks below the national average when it comes to preventing drunk driving. mothers against drunk
the enforcement of five different laws to catch or punish impaired drivers. massachusetts scored a two the out of five. the national average is just under three the bay state was downgraded for not requiring ignition interlocks for drivers who refuse to take a breathalyzer test or who are convicted of driving or rather their first drunk driving charge. >> you may have heard we have a few things bent. to it's just clear out there tonight that's quiet but there's a storm in the ocean and we're caught in the scwes no escaping an increase in clouds tomorrow. but we'll stay dry. almost the entire day. these are the clouds i'm talking about backing in on us tonight from that ocean storm. it has been doing that each day to southeastern massachusetts but this time this takes you through 7:00 a.m. this time meteorologist jason brewer will be tracking these cloutds as they make their way back to 128 and 495 by dinner time.
now tomorrow night there may be some drizzle that blows in off of the ocean that's why i say most of the day is going to be dry. daytime hours certainly it's at night when things start to get a little soggy then there's this waiting in the wings. we'll get back to that in a moment. first let's take about the temperatures. right now in the 30s in the suburbs. 40s in boston and 53 out there at the airport in worcester. i'm betting it's a little bit cooler in downtown worcester. it's in the low 30s off to the north and west it's in the 50s in some average will be pretty close to 40 with increasingly cloudy skies through the morning. it will be cloudy when you wake up in cape cod and southeastern massachusetts. if you see in sun on the south shore it's not long for this world. the clouds will be rolling in fairly quickly. so 50s where it's cloudy from the start tomorrow morning and through the day tomorrow. then off to the north and west where the clouds roll in last you get more sun close to the 60 degrees. all of it still above average for the day for this time of year.
this is the same front in the middle of the country and behind it blizzard conditions. that whole storm system has to roll through the northeast. now the first and worst part of it is going farther to the north. but the cold front comes through with showers approaching worcester by 4:00 sunday morning. boston soon after that 5:30ish, and then rolling on through here by the end of our sunday morning newscast. but the cold air will be blowing in already. so high temperatures will be realized in the morning only in the 40s. look at the blues here blues and whites into the worcester hills into the berkshires certainly the green mountains no question about that. so some light snow from time to time in the worcester hills. i'm betting there will be even though not being shown very well on our future cast data looking at everything i have seen come in. looks to me like will be flurries perhaps even in the city during the height of the cold air sunday night into monday morning. these are your temperatures from the seven-day forecast. look at that only 46 for a high sunday by the morning monday it is freezing
accumulating snow you need to go to the west and to the north. you will see that here through sunday evening not much but some then it increases more through monday evening with even some light snow into the suburbs of boston which is what i'm thinking this is going to bring to us. still rain in the offing for wednesday into thursday though for thanksgiving holiday something more about in the morning. this video takes the meaning to dunk a to a whole new height. he was able to dunk a biscuit, yes, into a cup of tea from 230 feet in the air. as part of the guinness world record day. butch. >> mark, no world records set at the garden tonight but there easily could have been if golden state wanted to and kevin durant's first
team playing without al horford or jay crowder. durant was booed during his introductions and during the the game. celtics hung tough early. avery bradley a nice night. terry sets him up for the jam. celts down six. bradley with the double double 17 points, 10 boards. isaiah shoots only four of 12. one of eight from three. this kretsd trail by seven at the break. but things got ugly after that. durant 23 points, 10 still the best overall score in the f.b.i. -- a game high 28. warriors -- 30s in the fourth with the lead before steve kerr calls off the the dogs. they beat the celts by 16. celts are in detroit tomorrow night.
questionable for sunday's game in san francisco. but they're both expected to play and that's a good thing because the patriots other tight end and other wide receiver will not play. chris hogan and gronkowski both rule out even though gronk won't play the word is that the injury he suffered on his hip last sunday night is not as bad as first reported. for tom brady not having gronk is one story line for this game. going back home and playing where he grew up is oot. brady has his priorities >> the reason we're going out there to play football games there's nothing that's more important it's easier to compartmentalize in my 17th year. i've been through you know a lot of different things with games traveling in different places and friends and so forth. >> speaking of quarterbacks matt ryan back at boston college today reminiscing about his college days at chestnut hill. the atlanta falcons quarterback will have his
for ryan this will be special. >> i'm really looking forward to tomorrow. i think it's going to be a lot of fun. i'm excited to be back for a game. it's been a while since i've been able to make it back to campus for a game. certainly a special weekend for myself and my family. 1:00 for b.c.u. tomorrow. bruins back in action tomorrow night at 7:00 at the garden. i'm heading to discover to cover the patriots. >> we need to win. >> we need good weather. >> the rain gear is what you there. >> it's going to rain in the northern central california and the coastline at least leading up to the game to kick off on sunday and be possibly even during the game. >> don't they know tom brady. >> at least you're not getting snowflakes. be happy about that the rain does not stop. so we're going to get some showers sunday morning. then some snow in the berkshires in the mountains
