5:02 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


Today's Weather Story

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.

"Sunny and dry stretch continues"

The high and mid level clouds that made their way across Southwest Florida yesterday kept temperatures a few degrees cooler as they topped out in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Now that the clouds have faded and moved east, we're on our way to a big warm up with more sunshine over the next few days.

Our morning will get off to a cool start, just not as chilly as yesterday. Temperatures will start in the upper 50s along the urban corridor, while northern and inland cool spots settle into the lower 50s. Sunny skies will prevail throughout the mid day hours, and temperatures will be on the rise throughout the afternoon. Expect daytime highs to be a bit warmer today as they return to the middle 80s.

Mostly clear skies will remain in the forecast tonight with comfortable conditions. Temperatures will also be seasonable as they dip into the lower 60s in town.

High pressure will rule our weather over the next several days, keeping us under a tranquil pattern. Our skies will stay mostly to partly sunny through the end of the week with mainly dry weather. Winds will veer to the east and southeast allowing the warmth and humidity to move in. Daytime highs will climb into the middle 80s by mid week, with morning lows in the middle 60s. In fact by the end of the week, temperatures will soar into the upper 80s. The weekend right now is looking good, with our next chance for rain on the map by early next week.

5:32 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


Today's Weather Story

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.

"Sunny and dry stretch continues"

The high and mid level clouds that made their way across Southwest Florida yesterday kept temperatures a few degrees cooler as they topped out in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Now that the clouds have faded and moved east, we're on our way to a big warm up with more sunshine over the next few days.

Our morning will get off to a cool start, just not as chilly as yesterday. Temperatures will start in the upper 50s along the urban corridor, while northern and inland cool spots settle into the lower 50s. Sunny skies will prevail throughout the mid day hours, and temperatures will be on the rise throughout the afternoon. Expect daytime highs to be a bit warmer today as they return to the middle 80s.

Mostly clear skies will remain in the forecast tonight with comfortable conditions. Temperatures will also be seasonable as they dip into the lower 60s in town.

High pressure will rule our weather over the next several days, keeping us under a tranquil pattern. Our skies will stay mostly to partly sunny through the end of the week with mainly dry weather. Winds will veer to the east and southeast allowing the warmth and humidity to move in. Daytime highs will climb into the middle 80s by mid week, with morning lows in the middle 60s. In fact by the end of the week, temperatures will soar into the upper 80s. The weekend right now is looking good, with our next chance for rain on the map by early next week.

POT IN YOUR PIZZA-VO


A PIZZA TOPPING LIKE NO OTHER.

A PIZZERIA IN VANCOUVER HAS A ONE OF A KIND PIZZA YOU CAN ONLY GET WITH A PRESCRIPTION.

THE PIZZERIA, MEGA ILL, BAKES A PIZZA THAT CAN GET YOU HIGH.

THE PEOPLE WHO RUN MEGA ILL SAY THEY ONLY SERVE UP SLICES TO PEOPLE WHO ARE OVER THE AGE OF 18 AND HAVE A PRESCRIPTION FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA. Return to index of stories...


POT IN YOUR PIZZA-SOTVO


"Basically, we infuse it through an oil-extraction process. We drizzle the oil onto the pizza and it medicates you when you eat it. It's a little different from smoking it. It takes about a half hour for it to activate."

"It has a litle bit of a tangy flavor, but it's not much different. You can't really taste it on the pizza."

NEW REGULATIONS THAT GO INTO EFFECT TODAY COULD FORCE THE PIZZERIA TO STOP MAKING PIES WITH MARIJUANA.

FINAL APPROVAL IS CURRENTLY IN LEGAL LIMBO, BUT IF THE OUTCOME OF THE CASE DOES BAN MARIJUANA-INFUSED PIZZA, THE OWNER OF MEGA ILL PLANS TO TAKE IT OFF THE MENU TO KEEP THE BUSINESS OPEN. Return to index of stories...

SQUATTERS-BUBBA TOSS


ALL NEW THIS MORNING--- NBC 2 IS DIGGING INTO AN ISSUE AFFECTING HUNDREDS OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA NEIGHBORHOODS.

SQUATTING!

YOU MAY BE ONE OF THOUSDANDS DEALING WITH SOMEONE ILLEGALLY LIVING IN A HOME NEXT DOOR OR YOU MAY EVEN OWN A HOME WHERE SOMEONE HAS ILLEGALLY MOVED IN.

WE SENT NBC 2'S SAM SWEENEY TO FIND OUT WHY THIS IS HAPPENING AND HOW SO MANY ARE GETTING AWAY WITH IT. Return to index of stories...


SQUATTERS-BUBBA


KRISTA STACEY----

THE SIMPLE ANSWER TO WHY THIS IS HAPPENING--- THE ECONOMY.

LOTS OF VACANT HOMES AND LOTS OF PEOPLE NEEDING A PLACE TO STAY.

NOW IMAGINE ---THE HOUSE NEXT TO YOU IS VACANT--- MAYBE BANK OWNED AND NOW

SOMEONE IS MOVING IN ILLEGALLY. Return to index of stories...


SQUATTERS-VO


THEY SET UP ELECTRICITY, CABLE, AND EVEN HAVE INTERNET. WHEN YOU CALL THE POLICE TO GET THEM OUT--- THEY SHOW THEIR UTILITY BILLS OR PHONY LEASE. THAT'S WHEN POLICE BECOME POWERLESS. THEY CAN'T FORCE THEM OUT. IT'S NOW BECOME A CIVIL MATTER.

IT'S HAPPENING ALL OVER THE STATE. THE HOT SPOTS IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA--- LEHIGH ACRES, CAPE CORAL AND OTHER RURAL PARTS OF LEE COUNTY.

WE WANTED TO KNOW HOW SQUATTERS FIND VACANT HOMES. WE FOUND OUT IT'S SIMPLE--- THE PROPERTY APPRAISERS WEBSITE GIVES THEM ALL THE INFORMATION THEY NEED TO MOVE IN.

NOW THE QUESTION BEGS--- HOW CAN PEOPLE LIVE RENT FREE FOR MONTHS SOMETIMES EVEN YEARS.

WE WENT TO FLORIDA RURAL LEGAL SERVICES FOR THE ANSWER: Return to index of stories...


SQUATTERS-SOT


1:41 I would say that's because there are so many houses that just get abandon. For whatever reason. Whether it's a homeowner or whether its a home that gets foreclosed upon but the bank doesn't take care of it or do anything about it yet. if theres no body actually going to the property that owns the property then its feasible that someone else can just take over. Return to index of stories...


SQUATTERS-BUBBA


EXPERTS SAY IT'S A TOUGH SITUATION TO DEAL WITH. THE SQUATTERS KNOW THE SYSTEM AND THEY KNOW IT CAN TAKE MONTHS FOR THEIR CASES TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE LEGAL SYSTEM. THE BEST ADVICE TO ANYONE DEALING WITH THIS--- NOTIFY THE OWNER AND START THE EVICTION PROCESS IMMEDIATELY.

COMING UP IN THE SIX O CLOCK HOUR WE TELL YOU ABOUT ANOTHER SHOCKING TREND--- PEOPLE CLAMING ABDANDONED PROPERTIES-AND EVENTUALLY BECOMING THE RIGHTFUL OWNER. THE DETAILS ON HOW THEY ARE DOING IT IN LESS THAN AN HOUR.
