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.

"More clouds with a few showers"

After a stretch of beautiful weather across Southwest Florida, some changes will take place today as a disturbance crosses the Gulf of Mexico. This system will increase the cloud cover, while bringing in a small rain chance for today.

Through the afternoon, expect a mix of clouds and sun with a few showers developing across the area. Despite the clouds, daytime highs will manage to climb into the lower 80s, with upper 70s across our beaches and coastal locations.

During the evening, a stray shower or two will be possible with the passing of a cold front. Overnight, expect clouds to decrease as cooler and drier weather settles down the peninsula. Temperatures by dawn will range from the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Dry high pressure will follow the front, which will result in a sunnier Thursday. Daytime highs will be unseasonably cool as they max out in the lower half of the 70s with a breezy northerly wind. We're in store for a late winter chill as temperatures dip into the middle to upper 40s by early Friday morning. Sunny skies will close out the work week and gradual warming trend will commence as we head into the weekend with afternoon highs returning to the lower 80s. Another dose of rain remains in the forecast for early next week. Return to index of stories...

CROWD SOURCING THE SEARCH-trxVO IN PLASMA


A MAJOR U-S SATELLITE OPERATOR UPLOADED FRESH IMAGES IN THE SEARCH FOR MISSING MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 3-70.

IT'S ALL PART OF A SO-CALLED "CROWD-SOURCING" EFFORT.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF VOLUNTEERS SCOURING SATELLITE IMAGES ONLINE -- FOR ANY CLUE OF THE PLANE'S WHEREABOUTS.

AND IT'S NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS BEEN DONE.

DAN SIMON REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


CROWD SOURCING THE SEARCH-PKG


-REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

THE BOEING TRIPLE 7 IS NO SMALL AIRCRAFT, BUT IN THIS CASE, IT FEELS LIKE A NEEDLE AND THE OCEAN IS THE HAYSTACK.

THAT'S WHY A COLORADO COMPANY, CALLED DIGITALGLOBE, HAS ENLISTED THE PUBLIC to HELP FIND THE MISSING PLANE.

"And we'll ask you to mark anything that looks interesting. Any sign of wreckage or life raft."

THE COMPANY HAS POINTED A COUPLE OF ITS ORBITING SATELLITES AT THE GULF OF THAILAND AND PUT THE IMAGES ONLINE AT TOMNOD.COM--- FOR PEOPLE TO SCOUR FOR ANYTHING SUSPICIOUS.

SEE SOMETHING INTERESTING--- YOU TAG IT WITH AN EASY CLICK.

A CNN IREPORTER--- FOUND THIS IMAGE--- THAT HE THOUGHT RESEMBLED THE SHAPE OF A PLANE.

NO WORD ON WHAT IF ANYTHING IT IS --- BUT BY CROWDSOURCING THE IMAGES, YOU PUT MORE EYES ON POSSIBLE CLUES.

IT'S NOT THE FIRST TIME SATELLITE IMAGERY HAS BEEN USED IN THIS WAY

IT HELPED TRACK TORNADO DAMAGE LAST YEAR IN MOORE, OKLAHOMA

AND MORE RECENTLY THE FLOODS IN COLORADO.

BUT THE MOST WELL KNOWN EXAMPLE OF CROWDSOURCING FOLLOWING A TRAGEDY OCCURRED AFTER THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBINGS.

INVESTIGATORS ASKED ATTENDEES TO SUBMIT ANY IMAGE OR VIDEO THAT MIGHT ASSIST THEM IN LOCATING THE PERPETRATORS.

AS FOR THE PLANE--- THE SHEER NUMBER OF DIGITAL VOLUNTEERS HAS OVERWHELMED THE WEBSITE-- A SIGN OF A PUBLIC EAGER AND WILLING TO HELP

"In many cases the areas covered are so large or the things looking we're for are so hard to find that without the help of hundreds of thousands of people online we'd never be able to find them."

WEATHER-WX WALL


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.

"More clouds with a few showers"

After a stretch of beautiful weather across Southwest Florida, some changes will take place today as a disturbance crosses the Gulf of Mexico. This system will increase the cloud cover, while bringing in a small rain chance for today.

Through the afternoon, expect a mix of clouds and sun with a few showers developing across the area. Despite the clouds, daytime highs will manage to climb into the lower 80s, with upper 70s across our beaches and coastal locations.

During the evening, a stray shower or two will be possible with the passing of a cold front. Overnight, expect clouds to decrease as cooler and drier weather settles down the peninsula. Temperatures by dawn will range from the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Dry high pressure will follow the front, which will result in a sunnier Thursday. Daytime highs will be unseasonably cool as they max out in the lower half of the 70s with a breezy northerly wind. We're in store for a late winter chill as temperatures dip into the middle to upper 40s by early Friday morning. Sunny skies will close out the work week and gradual warming trend will commence as we head into the weekend with afternoon highs returning to the lower 80s. Another dose of rain remains in the forecast for early next week. Return to index of stories...

NOW. YOU'LL SEE THE CRIME FOR YOURSELF.

EIGHT SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS ROLLING INSIDE THE STORE. CAPTURING DIFFERENT ANGLES.

LET'S START AT THE BEGINNING.

JUST BEFORE 1:00 IN THE MORNING. JANUARY 27TH. YOU SEE A WOMAN ENTER THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR.

PROSECUTORS SAY THAT'S GLORIA LEE. THE OWNER.

THE WOMAN HEADS TO A BACK DOOR. WHERE SHE LETS A SECOND PERSON IN. A HOODED FIGURE. CARRYING WHAT APPEARS TO BE, TWO RED GASOLINE CANS.

INVESTIGATORS BELIEVE THAT SECOND PERSON IS. KIRK BILLS.

WATCH AS THE FIGURE SPLASHES LIQUID OVER THE DISPLAY CASES. AND ON THE CAGES WHERE THE PUPPIES CAN BE SEEN MOVING ABOUT.

HE THEN RETURNS TO THE REAR OF THE STORE. PICKS UP THE GASOLINE CANS ONE AT A TIME. AND POURS THE CONTENTS AROUND THE STORE.

MEANTIME. PROSECUTORS SAY LEE WAS COLLECTING FILES FROM AN OFFICE AREA.

SHE SPEAKS BRIEFLY WITH THE HOODED FIGURE. PACKS UP THE GASOLINE CANS. PICKS UP HER FILES, AND LEAVES THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR.

THAT'S WHEN THE SECOND PERSON IS SEEN ROLLING UP NEWSPAPER, LIGHTING IT, AND TOUCHING IT TO THE FLAMMABLE LIQUID.

FLAMES SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE STORE. AND TOWARDS THE DOGS THEMSELVES. YOU CAN SEE THEM HERE BACKING AWAY FROM THE THE FRONT OF their CAGES.

THE MAN THEN LIGHTS A STACK OF NEWSPAPERS ON FIRE AS HE LEAVES THROUGH THE BACK DOOR.

FORTUNATELY. THE SPRINKLER SYSTEM WORKED.

HEALTH MATTERS-ON CAM


WITH MORE THAN 65-MILLION AMERICANS SUFFERING FROM THE EFFECTS OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE IT IS CRITICAL TO UNDERSTAND THE BASICS.

THE GOAL - TO BETTER CONTROL THE CONDITION.

AMY OSHIER REPORTS IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

COUPLE A SYMPTOMLESS HEALTH CONDITION WITH AN AGE GROUP

THAT FEELS INVINCIBLE AND YOU HAVE A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS

COMBINATION. EXPERTS SAY THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH

HYPERTENSION.

GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTITIONER

RUNS:

3:56: High blood pressure at an early age, you're doing damage to the vessels, you're

increasing the risk of having heart problems, strokes and other vascular modalities later.

A STUDY FUNDED BY THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH FOUND ONE

IN FIVE ADULTS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 24 AND 32 HAD ELEVATED BLOOD

PRESSURE. THE BIG NUMBER SEEMED SURPRISING AT FIRST, UNTIL YOU

LOOK AT OUR EXPANDING WAISTLINES.

GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTITIONER

RUNS:

2:55 Hypertension is up because we do see much higher rates of obesity now. Diets are

not good. Many people eat processed foods, fast foods that have high levels of sodium.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Younger adults are less likely to address their high blood pressure- because more

often than not, they don't know about it. Sandwiched between children who get regular

checkups and older adults who get annual physicals- this age group tends to let their

healthcare slip through the cracks.

GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTITIONER

RUNS:

7:58: You don't know how much it's effecting you until you have that heart attack

or stroke because you can't tell your blood pressure is high or low unless it's at the

extreme.

IF CAUGHT EARLY, PEOPLE ARE MORE LIKELY TO FACE CONSEQUENCES

OR REQUIRE MEDICAL INTERVENTION. EVEN A 10 POUND WEIGHT LOSS CAN

LOWER YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE. LIMITING SALT, EXERCISING REGULARLY

AND GIVING UP SMOKING- CAN ALL HELP TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF. FOR LEE
