HELLO-2 SHOT


GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME TO NBC-2 NEWS TODAY.

I'M CLIFTON FRENCH.

AND I'M CHRISTY ANDREWS

TODAY IS SUNDAY, APRIL 6TH.

WE ARE KICKING THE MORNING OFF WITH SOME SUNSHINE!

METOEOROLOGIST JASON DUNNING IS HERE WITH A LOOK AT TODAY'S FORECAST.

. Return to index of stories...


WEATHER-WX CENTER


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.

Our Sunday forecast will play out very much like Saturday, except temperatures will likely be a touch warmer with highs soaring into the mid to upper 80s.

The warmest locations will be deeper inland, especially around LaBelle and Immokalee where temperatures will be approaching 90 degrees.

Coastal zones will stay a little cooler, but the afternoon will still be quite balmy from Fort Myers Beach to Marco Island with highs in the mid 80s.

Speaking of the beaches, the forecast looks very nice for the boaters and beach goers today.

Winds will be out of the south to southwest this afternoon at 10 knots. The water temperatures in the Gulf is even a touch warmer today with a reading of 77 at Fort Myers Beach and 78 at Naples.

Sunshine will be plentiful again today, and rain will be scarce.

The next rain chance arrives in Southwest Florida by Tuesday as a cool front pushes in from the northwest, bringing with it a band of rain and even a few thunderstorms. The best chance of rain Tuesday will come from the mid morning through the mid afternoon, but this won't be an all-day rain event.

Once the front moves out, we'll see a short stretch of slightly cooler, breezy and less humid weather. The coolest day will be Wednesday with highs only reaching the mid to upper 70s under a partly cloudy sky.

Our overnight temps will get as cool as the 50s Thursday morning, but temperatures will bounce back quickly by Thursday and Friday afternoon as highs climb back into the mid 80s. Return to index of stories...

WE'RE IN STORE FOR ANOTHER SUNNY AND WARM DAY.

BUT THAT COULD BE CHANGING VERY SOON --

METEOROLOGIST JASON DUNNINIG IS STANDING BY WITH A LOOK AT YOUR FORECAST. Return to index of stories...


FORECAST-WX CENTER


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.

Our Sunday forecast will play out very much like Saturday, except temperatures will likely be a touch warmer with highs soaring into the mid to upper 80s.

The warmest locations will be deeper inland, especially around LaBelle and Immokalee where temperatures will be approaching 90 degrees.

Coastal zones will stay a little cooler, but the afternoon will still be quite balmy from Fort Myers Beach to Marco Island with highs in the mid 80s.

Speaking of the beaches, the forecast looks very nice for the boaters and beach goers today.

Winds will be out of the south to southwest this afternoon at 10 knots. The water temperatures in the Gulf is even a touch warmer today with a reading of 77 at Fort Myers Beach and 78 at Naples.

Sunshine will be plentiful again today, and rain will be scarce.

The next rain chance arrives in Southwest Florida by Tuesday as a cool front pushes in from the northwest, bringing with it a band of rain and even a few thunderstorms. The best chance of rain Tuesday will come from the mid morning through the mid afternoon, but this won't be an all-day rain event.

Once the front moves out, we'll see a short stretch of slightly cooler, breezy and less humid weather. The coolest day will be Wednesday with highs only reaching the mid to upper 70s under a partly cloudy sky.

Our overnight temps will get as cool as the 50s Thursday morning, but temperatures will bounce back quickly by Thursday and Friday afternoon as highs climb back into the mid 80s. Return to index of stories...


MISSING MALAYSIAN PLANE-VO IN PLASMA, TRX


A POSSIBLE BREAK IN THE SEARCH FOR FLIGHT 370.

NBC-2 HAS DISCOVERED A CHINESE SHIP HEARD TWO FLEETING ELECTRONIC PULSES IN THE INDIAN OCEAN.

WE ARE ALSO LEARNING THAT THE AUSTRALIANS MAY HAVE HEARD SOMETHING AS WELL IN A separate SEARCH ZONE.

THIS IS ALL HAPPENING AS THE BATTERIES ON THOSE BLACK BOXES COULD RUN OUT ANY DAY NOW.

CLAYTON SANDELL HAS MORE FROM PERTH AUSTRALIA. Return to index of stories...


MISSING MALAYSIAN PLANE-PKG


\

Overnight. search teams in the air and on the water made an urgent swing

toward this Chinese patrol ship. The crew onboard says it TWICE detected a

signal that MIGHT be "pings" coming from black box recorders.

SOT - ANGUS HOUSTON / THIS IS AN IMPORTANT AND ENCOURAGING LEAD, BUT ONE

WHICH I URGE YOU TO CONTINUE TO TREAT CAREFULLY. WE ARE WORKING IN A VERY

BIG OCEAN AND WITHIN A VERY LARGE SEARCH AREA.

Reports this morning say the Chinese used this simple handheld device to

hear those pings. If so. the maker of the device tells the New York Times

it likely would NOT be able to hear those pings in such a deep ocean. A

British Royal Navy ship is now closing in. bringing more sophisticated

gear for listening underwater.

But a second Australian ship carrying this U.S. Navy black box locator now

WON'T be coming right away. It's chasing its OWN LEAD. A THIRD mysterious

sound picked up about three-hundred fifty miles away. It could be

something. or nothing.

SOT - ANGUS HOUSTON / WE ARE DEALING WITH SOMETHING IN DEEP WATER, WE ARE

DEALING IN AN ENVIRONMENT WERE SOMETIMES YOU CAN GET FALSE INDICATIONS.

This morning the searchers are focusing further south. because a new

analysis of satellite data reveals the Boeing triple-seven may have been

flying FASTER than first thought. possibly going down close to where the

Chinese picked up that signal.

NATS - SEARCH PLANES, SHIP

But so far. weeks of searching the Indian Ocean has failed to turn up any

real evidence. And Ttracking down THESE new leads is more urgent than ever

because the pings from those black boxes may be just days away from going

silent. their batteries running out. Return to index of stories...

IT'S BELIEVED THAT 7 MILLION AMERICANS DON'T KNOW THEY'RE LIVING WITH

A TICKING TIME BOMB: TYPE 2 DIABETES. THAT'S THE BEST ESTIMATE FROM A

2013 REPORT BY THE AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION.

SHARON KRISPINSKIYCERTIFIED DIABETES EDUCATOR

RUNS:

8:15 The challenge is with Type 2 diabetes is that very often you may be asymptomatic,

have no symptoms at all. And so it's very hard for people to change behaviors when

they don't feel bad.

SHARON KRISPINSKY IS A DIABETES EDUCATOR WITH LEE HEALTH

SOLUTIONS. THE REALITY IS MANY PEOPLE LEARN THEY HAVE DIABETES

WHEN THEIR BLOOD SUGAR GETS OUT OF WHACK AND THEY SHOW UP AT

THE ER.

SHARON KRISPINSKIYCERTIFIED DIABETES EDUCATOR

RUNS:

2:14 Patients particularly when they're first diagnosed are usually very dehydrated if

their blood sugars are extremely high. And that prompts them to come into the hospital

because they have so many symptoms related to the hyperglycemia.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

It is a stressful wakeup call. One that is preventable. Provided people look at their

personal risk factors and watch out for even the slightest warning signs.

RISK FACTORS INCLUDE: BEING OVERWEIGHT, HAVING A HIGH PROPORTION

OF BELLY FAT, AGING, INACTIVITY AND FAMILY HISTORY. IF YOU FEEL YOU

ARE AT RISK- LOOK FOR THESE WARNING SIGNS: FREQUENT URINATION,

EXCESSIVE THIRST, SLOW HEALING, BLURRY VISION AND FATIGUE. YOUR

DOCTOR CAN GIVE YOU A BLOOD TEST TO REVEAL YOUR STATUS. BY

PROPERLY MANAGING THE CONDITION, PATIENTS AVOID THE RISK OF

COMPLICATIONS.

SHARON KRISPINSKIYCERTIFIED DIABETES EDUCATOR

RUNS:

5:27 Even with a modest weight loss with Type Two Diabetes, a 5 to 10% weight loss,

they can significantly improve their blood sugar control and their overall health.

WHILE PREVENTION IS ALWAYS THE OPTIMAL CHOICE, NO ONE WANTS TO BE
