6:04 am
the hydrant area. philadelphia water department has been here as evidence by the cones here that say pwd on them here but everything is icing over. this is also the weather element. as soon as that the water comes up it is icing up. it is really slick right there. but they have put some salt down here but still in the enough to open things up. where we are 63rd and half forward shut down, of course, route 15, septa in trolley or shuttle bus service east or westbound, between 60th and 63rd and also, route ten is experiencing some significant delays there. master street is the only way you have to actually make a turn there. you cannot continue on 63rd. you have to get to haverford where we are right now. police shutting this area down. everything icing over right now. you don't see many people out here now as morning gets later, this will certainly tie up traffic in this area where we are but we can tell crews have been out here a little bit because we have seen salt
6:05 am
down there. but again, a lot of icing over and the water running down this way, down haverford, street, you can see another block is right down that way, where police are blocking that street right there and water has been running around almost every way, even further down. give them another shot, this way down 63rd street. you can see that the street down that way is also block. so, all have of those on coming cars coming up this way will to have make a turn, make a turn to their right our left. so again more people kind of getting up and getting out as we have seen more cars and headlights heading up this way. this will be a major problem for the morning in terms of getting around, guys, back to you. >> dave kinchen thanks very much. emergency crews are on the scene of the underground fire in walnut street in rittenhouse square. >> at least 90 people are forced out of their homes and businesses. officials say underground electrical explosion started the fire on the 2100 block around 6:00 last night.

6:12 am
your hand out and give a wave to sky fox and close that window because it is cold.
6:13 am
6:14 am
6:14 on your friday morning anticipating valentines day on sunday, weather-wise though you may be dreading the frigid forecast, you can be my valentine with 18 degrees as a high temperature and then the evening, 3 degrees, for the night, if you are going to have a late night, it is monday the next day but still, as long as you are prepared,
6:15 am
you can be bundled up. the early morning temperatures, are going to be n'synx will digits and wind chills will be well below zero on sunday morning. we will get some notification, from the national weather service, they have already issued a special weather statement warning bus this brutal cold and some cases record cold. record for philadelphia for sunday the 14th is 2 degrees. we are forecasting three. our other record are temperatures, actual temperatures below zero. we could tie or break a few of those. there is cold air in place already but we will get reenforcement with another cold front coming through tonight, so even though we will see no snow or anything weather right now, we should start out the day with sunshine by four or 5:00 in the afternoon is when we could see the first of the snow flakes ahead of the front and then we will see widely scattered pockets of the snow just like what happened yesterday where we get isolated snow squall or two that can happen outside tonight into the early hours
6:16 am
of tomorrow. and then, very windy, very cold, saturday and especially on sunday. both weekend days, extremely cold, and with tonight's snowfall, we could get an inch in the poconos. we could get half inch if you get that snow tonight, so another, quick, fast and furious dumping of the half inch of snow possible tonight. 18 degrees, right now. wind chill, is ten, in philadelphia, it feels like single digits, just brutal cold, make sure that the kids if they are going to school today have their hats and gloves honest specially, so wind are not as bad as they were yesterday but temperatures are lower. it is still cold. 28 degrees today, and that is balmy compared to tomorrow and sunday when we're 20 and 18 respectively for high temperatures. we will get to 35 degrees, on sunday, and late day, snow changes over to rain on tuesday. that is monday into tuesday, i should have said, and then it is something we could see
6:17 am
linger into wednesday morning. so after a licensing holiday weekend getting back to reality may be a challenge for a variety of reasons, bob kelly but plenty of challenging this morning. >> definitely a challenge this morning for residents in west philadelphia as we look live from sky fox over the scene of this water main break. i caution using the word water main break because from the ground it looks like water is coming from the broken hydrant or maybe a construction project that was on this corner here at 63rd and haverford. there is water coming from underground icing over the road surface here. this is a live will from sky fox. the lets go to our maps. because this happened at 4:00 this morning. sixty-third, closed, haverford over to master, and girard avenue is closed, 62nd over to 64th. now in addition to the vehicles on a detour the septa a trolleys are having a rough go because girard avenue, and 63rd carry the trolley tracks
6:18 am
for both route ten and route 15. there is no services in that area for the 15. they cannot even get shuttle buses through. adjusted schedule on route ten. best bet go to and get the exact detour for both of those trolleys whichever one you used. now here on rittenhouse square, walnut street blocked as a result of the underground transformer fire closed from 21st to 22nd and if you go up walnut you will be push off. stay with chestnut or spruce through morning rush hour. accident here on the the schuylkill expressway, eastbound right in south philadelphia, right before the break off for i-95, air port and passyunk avenue. eastbound accident. because of the cold temperatures, septa's market frankford line is showing its express ab services. all trains making all stops so that in one has to stand out any longer then i have to with 18 degrees out there, on the platforms this morning.
6:19 am

6:31 am
we will cloud up in the afternoon and we will see snow flakes by the evening commute, and sunset time is 5:33 p.m. so bob kelly with these temperatures, and that water main break not only is it a traffic issue but an icing issue as well. >> this will be the first of many situations like this over the next couple days with the cold temperatures. we are seeing slow downs on the schuylkill and i-95, big problem in the neighborhood this morning, west philadelphia, 63rd, closed between haverford and master, lets get for a ride, sky fox over the scene of the busy intersection that not only handles vehicles traffic but also the septa trolleys, the route ten and the 15, are impact this morning. we will go to dave with more details in the second but the water that is coming up underground probably associated with this construction project on the corner, and icing over this busy stretch here in west philadelphia. let go back to the maps, girard avenue is also closed sixth second over to 64th and
6:32 am
route ten and tracks for route ten and 15 trolleys are in that stretch. get to and they will have the exact detour for each one of the trolley routes. other problem is left over from yesterday, underground transformer firewall nut street closed this morning between 21st and 22nd, steve keeley is there, we will go to him in a moment. heading through this stretch you will want to stick with chestnut or spruce because if you use walnut you'll get stuck in the grid lock in the height of the rush hour and those detours go into effect. the with the cold temperatures, come septa making adjustments on the market frankford line. no a or b express services this morning. every train making every step. they are trying to keep everybody with the shortest amount of time on the platforms witt being 18 degrees out there. this is a hot mess out there in south philadelphia, this is the schuylkill expressway, eastbound, the ramps, to philly international airport, passyunk avenue, and it is a
6:33 am
three way split. we have equipment on the scene here right now, what started out as just two or three vehicles it the looks like it could be more than that. if you are trying to come into south philadelphia, that is your ramp there for i-95, and philly international airport. by the way, if you get to the airport no delays looking to get out of town someplace warm. alex and lauren back to you. we're going to florida. >> let's do it. lets get back to breaking news out of west philadelphia where water is flooding an area and causing trouble for commuters. >> they are told to stay away the area. dave kinchen is standing by. dave, what is happening right now. >> reporter: right now we have better look at what this appears to be right here. we are still waiting for confirmation from the philadelphia water department but we can see is there a malfunction here with the fire hydrant just gushing water there was a project underway here and we believe they were putting in some new traffic lights, that is the latest
6:34 am
piece of infrastructure we can see here with this construction but clearly water gushing out from this hydrant here and turning into ice not too much longer after that. as it spread out. it there seems to be more water here. police officers on the the scene tell me that the the water department was here early this morning. they did put down the cones. they have philadelphia water department on it. we are told the water department will be back out here at 9:00 according to officers on the scene. they are telling us that there are major blockages out this way, especially with weather, the element, because of the water turned into ice, freezing up on septa tracks there. so route 15, in trolley or shuttle bus services between ease and westbound 60th street and 63rd due to the situation, eastbound is experiencing delays between malvern loop and girard and lancaster avenue. that is what septa is
6:35 am
reporting. neighbors are telling me we do have water. they say they do have water. that leads us to this is more of a hydrant issue. we have made several calls to the water department still waiting to hear back. we were told by police on the scene that they will be here at 9:00 o'clock n fact we did see the captain out here make something calls. we will try to talk to the captain too. he just got here on the scene. we have not had a chance to talk to him just yet. let me just show you one of the delays. that is master street. you can see how people have to either turn right or left, and they cannot take 63rd, past here to haverford where this water, where this water is gushing out. so, more traffic, more cars coming out because it is getting, of course, later in the morning since we have been here earlier and the sun comes up we can see more kind of glaze of the ice that has been forming down the street here, down 63rd street, and also down haverford, a big issue
6:36 am
here. the salt has been down here, earlier this morning. water department was here putting salt down to deal with the ice buzz obviously more water means more ice. so that means we need more salt. that is a major problem. you know, i can show you another street that is block. you will to have tread carefully as you walk out this way. by the way we will check within more time with the water department and check with the captain out here, if you can get some more information, back to you. >> thanks, dave. an explosion, smoke, and flames, ignite under walnut street this morning. it doesens of people out of their homes and businesses, steve keeley on the scene in rittenhouse square. >> this is the scene from yesterday but steve, there is still officials out there this morning. >> reporter: just about three blocks from rittenhouse square to be precise, 21st and walnut. you are looking down with all of the equipment in the middle between 21st and 22nd which bob was just talking about abe barricade up. the despite these barricade in the the middle of the street
6:37 am
we saw a cab crash into them because they are tailgating people and going so fast and they didn't realize the road was shut down. twenty-first street you see the person try to make a right turn. traffic starting to build, and that means a lot of grid lock through center sit the eye streets as people try to figure out around this as you can see, this lead to 76, the blue sign you see there now. in the light 276, and it is main way to 76 for people in center city. so they are to figure out how to get to those roads out here. here's y12 hours ago. the here's the picture from our man, chris peter shon put this on you tube. black billowing smoke from one sewer transformer grates on the sidewalk. we are coming up from several of them, and why they are digging holes, and live picture, you can see a peco crew over here. on 21st street. they are trying to get all of the lines that link under ground here and get them fix. until they do, they beauty
6:38 am
