BAD WEATHER CONTINUES TO PREVENT DIVERS FROM EXPLORING AN AREA WHERE ONE SEARCH AND RESCUE PILOT BELIEVES THE MAIN BODY OF THE JET IS LOCATED.

NBC'S KELLY COBIELLA HAS MORE FROM SURABAYA , INDONESIA.

The searching continues late into the night here in Indonesia. Search crews have been dealing with very difficult weather conditions yet again.

It is monsoon season here. There are heavy rains, winds. These storms which can come on very suddenly and also difficult seas.waves as high as 13 feet which not only make it tough to actually spot debris on the sea surface but also to retrieve and move it from ship to ship and eventually back to land.

Despite all these difficulties, searchers were able to recover 21 bodies today.

They made a lot of progress on that front. Ten of them have been brought to this identification center in Surabaya and the identification work will begin tomorrow mornin local time.

Four people in all have been identified including a teacher in her late 40s, a flight attendant, a young attendant, a young man 22 years-old and an eleven year-old boy.

All of them Indonesian.

The CEO of AirAsia tweeted today that he was accompanying the flight attendant's body back to her hometown and also would attend the funeral.

In terms of looking for the wreckage and the main body of the plane which searchers believe is at the bottom of the Java Sea.

ON CAM:

.not much progress made today. They were not able to listen for those black boxes.

NBC'S JENNIFER JOHNSON HAS OUR STORY. Return to index of stories...


2015 ECONOMIC OUTLOOK-PKG


THE COLLAPSE OF OIL PRICES THAT SENT GAS PRICES PLUMMETING WAS THE GIFT THAT KEPT ON GIVING FOR CONSUMERS AT THE END OF 2014.AND ECONOMISTS SAY THAT WILL LIKELY CONTINUE FOR AWHILE IN 2015.SAVING DRIVERS 750 DOLLARS A YEAR.

Sot: Michael Farr, President, Farr, Miller & Washington, LLC:16-:25

"So those people are out spending more money.buying more goods and services.and that means manufacturing has to make more stuff and hire people to do that and that's really good for the economy."

ECONOMISTS PREDICT JOB GAINS WILL AVERAGE 250-THOUSAND A MONTH.PUTTING 3-MILLION AMERICANS BACK TO WORK IN 2015. RETAIL AND FOOD SALES ARE EXPECTED TO GROW 5-PERCENT.

WALL STREET SOARED IN 2014.AND PREDICTIONS ARE OPTIMISTIC FOR 2015. BUT WAGE GROWTH IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN MODEST.

Sot: Jared Bernstein, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities:46-:54

"There is a question as to whether the growing economy will finally reach down and reach the middle class up in 2015 in ways that it hasn't reached them thus far."

MOTOR VEHICLE PRODUCTION IS EXPECTED TO GROW.HOME BUILDING WILL STAY MODEST AS FEWER BUYERS CAN AFFORD NEW HOMES.

BUT CONGRESS HAS A LOT OF KEY DECISIONS THAT COULD HAVE AN IMPACT.WHETHER TO RAISE THE DEBT CEILING.AND WHAT TO DO WITH A DWINDLING HIGHWAY TRUST FUND.

Sot: Jared Bernstein, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities 1:11-1:21

"Those kinds of deadlines can either be met in ways that are dramatic and create a problem for the economy or they can be done smoothly and that can be most important for an economy that has some momentum going for it."

FOR NOW CONSUMERS CAN ENJOY THE BOOST FROM LOWER GAS PRICES.AND THE SAVINGS IN THEIR POCKETS.

NEITHER DID DOCTORS.

THEY TOLD LAMPITT THAT A PIECE OF METAL MAY HAVE BEEN INSERTED DURING SURGERY AFTER THE ACCIDENT.

I lifted up a concrete block and carried it. about 20 feet with my left hand.

That's the most unusual thing he hadn't seen one like that before.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

The forecast is looking good for Saturday and Sunday. A warm southeasterly wind will continue this weekend and keep our daytime highs in the 80's. Overnight we will continue to cool enough to bring some morning fog to the picture. Visibility may be reduced for a few hours around sunrise on Saturday. Rain showers will be few and far between and the chance for shower development is around 10 percent both weekend days.

Looking to next week it appears that yet another front will move into the state on Monday and stall out over the area for a few days. That would argue for a cloudy forecast to start the first full week of 2015. Rain chances are still low next week at about 20 - 30 percent. Return to index of stories...
