1ST WEATHER-WXANIBOX


ROBERT WX

It was another hot & humid across Southwest Florida, with highs again in the low to mid 90s. Scattered storms again developed mainly inland and more activity may try to push in from the Gulf later this evening. Temps will fall into the 80s. Overnight lows will fall into the mid and upper 70s.

Showers and storms will also be possible Thursday as Tropical Storm Arthur begins to push away from Florida. The best chance for rain will likely be in the morning hours in coastal areas, with scattered storms possible inland during the afternoon. Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

July 4th is still looking fairly good, with plenty of sunshine expected. Some dry air will also push in, reducing the threat for showers and storms in the area. Some isolated activity is still expected though with temps in the 90s.

More typical Southwest Florida weather begins to return for the weekend. Expect plenty of morning sun and scattered PM storms possible in the afternoon and early evening. Temps both weekend days will be in the low 90s.

The scattered storm chance will linger into next week.

TROPICAL STORM ARTHUR

Arthur remains a healthy tropical storm east of Cape Canaveral. Maximum sustained winds are 60 mph and Arthur is beginning to move north towards the Carolinas.

The Tropical Storm Watch has been cancelled for the East Coast of Florida, but new Tropical Storm Warnings are up for much of coastal North Carolina.

Arthur is expected to strengthen into a hurricane and will like graze the central coast of North Carolina before moving toward the Cape Cod area of New England. Return to index of stories...

0:42 - 0:48 -- Officer Nicholas Toma, Helped Save Puppies

0:00 - 0:03 -- Ofc. Kelsey Evenson

"You could feel the heat coming off of them, without even touching them"

SEVEN TINY LIVES --

0:07 - 0:11 -- Ofc. Nicholas Toma

"There's two of them that were just real, real light breathing. They looked like they were kind of on the way out."

THAT'S WHAT OFFICERS KELSEY EVENSON AND NICHOLAS TOMA OF THE FORT MYERS POLICE DEPARTMENT SAY THEY FOUND WHEN THEY ARRIVED AT THE VILLA CAPRI APARTMENT COMPLEX ON SUNDAY.

0:20 - 0:24 -- Ofc. Evenson

"The mom was up at the window, just panting really bad and you could see drool rolling off of her face."

INVESTIGATORS SAY THEY WERE LEFT INSIDE A U-HAUL TRUCK BY THEIR OWNER -- DUSTIN UNWIN.

0:32 - 0:38 -- Ofc. Evenson

"I immediately just checked the door to make sure it was unlocked, and luckily it was or else something else could have happened."

THE OFFICERS KNEW THEY HAD TO ACT -- AND FAST -- SO WITH THE HELP OF ON LOOKERS -- THEY DID EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO COOL THE DOGS DOWN.

0:47 - 0:53 -- Ofc. Toma

"We were taking bottled water and pouring the bottles, the bottled water over the puppies backs just to try and get them to cool down a little bit."

THEN FIREFIGHTERS ARRIVED WITH TINY OXYGEN MASKS. LITERALLY BREATHING LIFE BACK INTO THE PUPPIES.

1:01 - 1:11 -- Ofc. Toma

"They were barely moving, barely responsive to touch, or anything like that. even to the water. It wasn't until they got the pure oxygen from the fire department that they really started to come back."

BUT DON'T CALL THEM HEROES.

1:18 - 1:22 -- both officers talking

"It's just part of the job." "Any body could have done it, they just called the right people."

RIGHT PEOPLE. RIGHT PLACE. DOING THE RIGHT THING.

SOT-TRISH ROUTTE

I think you've got six young men who are bored, but what they did--- this was a lesson learned the hard way-- a very hard way.

INVESTIGATORS SAY THEY TOOK GOLF CARTS FROM IDA S BAKER ON A JOY RIDE AND TEARING UP THE FOOTBALL FIELD.

NOT LONG AFTER THESE PICTURES WERE RELEASED-- TRISH ROUTTE WITH CRIME STOPPERS SAYS, THE PHONES STARTED RINGING.

SOT-TRISH

Sot 8:52:27-8:52:37

Tips came in identifying several of the kids, some had a couple of names, some had one or two names, but on the end we were able to identify all 6 and today they are facing the repercussions of what they did that one stupid night

THE TEENS -- ALL BETWEEN 16 AND 17 ARE UNDER ARREST TONIGHT -- CHARGED WITH BURGLARY AND GRAND THEFT.

STUDENTS AT BAKER TELL ME THEY KNOW THE STUDENTS INVOLVED.

COUNCIL IS CONCERNED THE STUDY WILL RECOMMEND BUILDING A CONTROVERSIAL FLYOVER.

NBC2'S LAURA ROBERTS UNCOVERED WHY THAT'S A DEAL BREAKER. Return to index of stories...


BONITA BEACH ROAD-PKG-BNR


In Bonita Springs - The only thing scarier than the traffic at US 41 and Bonita Beach Road-

Brenda Jones

Bonita Springs

03:15

Its crazy around here

is a possible solution to the problem.

Donna Stone

Bonita Springs

36:43 36:47

This is ridiculous to be jamming this down our throat when we clearly don't want it

A majority of residents say a flyover would be the wrong choice for the city -

and lined up at tonight's council meeting to make that clear.

An ongoing, 18-month F-DOT study looking at the intersection *will consider the flyover -

along with other possible solutions like a round about or adding more lanes.

Debbie Tower

Florida Dept. of Transportation

31:56 32:03

Nothing is predetermined all options are on the table, we have not considered anything over another option, at all

Florida Department of Transportation officials say they are required to do the study this way.

But residents, and 5 out of 7 council members, worry a flyover will cause people to fly by local businesses.

Donna Stone

Bonita Springs

37:13

There's no impulse anymore you have to literally plan to do a u-turn to go around to go under a bridge and everything else to get to a business:23

Council voted against the study in January -

and voted again tonight to put an end to it.

Peter Simmons

Bonita Springs City Council

20:00 20:05

We don't want to continue a process that has the potential to destroy this small town charm

But it's not up to them.

Ultimately, the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization will decide if the million-dollar study will continue.

They don't meet again until the end of August.

So until then, the study will continue down the road.
