FIRST WEATHER


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.SHOWERS AND STORMS CONTINUE TONIGHT

The weather pattern for the rest of tonight and tomorrow will continue to feature passing showers and thunderstorms. Upper level winds are still out of the west and will push the rain from the Gulf of Mexico, across the beaches, and toward the east coast. Most of the time we can count on rain to generally occur in the late day. This pattern will deliver showers at any time of day or night. It looks like this will last through Friday.

Expect brief downpours, gusty winds and lightning as the storms move through this evening and again tomorrow morning. Temperatures will continue to be in the mid 70's and lower 90's through the end of the week.

The westerly winds shift by the weekend and we will return to 'normal' July weather with quiet mornings and afternoon thunderstorms. The tropics are quiet and no storms are expected to develop for the next 3 to 5 days. Return to index of stories...

PUBLIC WORKS TRUCKS AND BULL DOZERS BLOCKED PARTS OF LAIKA AVENUE TODAY.

BUT PORT CHARLOTTE RESIDENT JIM TUCKER DOESN'T MIND.

"Bottom line is yeah I'm glad to see it done because you just have water that sits there for two or three days."

THE TEAM FROM PUBLIC WORKS IS CARVING OUT DRAINAGE DITCHES TO MAKE SURE RAINY DAYS LIKE THIS DON'T LEAVE STANDING WATER.

IT'S A BIG JOB BUT COUNTY LEADERS SAY THEY ARE MAKING A DENT ONE ROADWAY AT A TIME.

"We have over 200 miles lane of roads and ditches on both sides of those roads so it's a pretty immense task."

BUDGET CUTBACKS AREN'T HELPING EITHER.

ELIAS SAYS HIS OFFICE IS OPERATING WITH FEWER EXCAVATORS TO HANDLE ROADWORK.

HE SAYS THINGS HAVEN'T EVEN BEGUN TO GET REALLY WET YET BUT HE'S ALREADY SEEN AN INCREASE IN COMPLAINTS AND REQUEST FOR SERVICE.

HIS OFFICE DEALS WITH UP TO 250 SERVICE REQUESTS A WEEK.

"They vary from potholes to brush cutting to drainage to garbage on the side of the road we deal with all those things but

I would say about 60-70 percent of our complaints are drainage related."

TUCKER SAYS HIS DITCH COLLECTS ALL KINDS OF THINGS WHEN IT RAINS.

"Well this is a ditch in a residential area but sometimes you see fish 2-3 inches long in there."

"We've had frog breeding and tadpoles and everything else in there and I'm afraid of mosquitoes."

ELIAS SAYS THAT ALL COMPLAINTS ARE FILED BUT IT MAY TAKE AT LEAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE CREWS CAN ADDRESS THEM.

HE ADDS THAT CHARLOTTE COUNTY CAN TYPICALLY EXPECT 55 INCHES OF RAIN A YEAR.

AND WITH PLENTY TIME LEFT YOU CAN EXPECT TO SEE HIS TEAM OUT IN THE STREETS RAIN OR SHINE.

ITS A BARBERSHOP THAT DOES MORE THAN JUST CUT HAIR.

JUAN DIAS-GRANADOS HAS OUR STORY. Return to index of stories...


WEST PALM BEACH BARBER MENTOR-PKG


This isn't your normal barbershop

Nats

You'll find the typical tools of the trade.

But also books.

The barbershop is based on men coming together grooming each other to become better men, and i think books and education is a fundemental part of that.

For kids walking into royal touch barbershop, it's so much more than haircut.

Right now im reading about african american inventors, i've never heard of any of these inventors, so i'm learning something.

No tv's, no radio's

I come here to read and improve my knowledge, there's just so many books here.

Instead, owner reggie ross says his younger customers put their noses to the books,

Ross asks the kid customers to read the books to him outloud while getting a cut

Nats

Palm beach county 's graduation rate for black males is just 50 percent according to the school district.

And that's unacceptable for this riveria beach shop owner.

I think it helps them with their literacy the speed of reading and comprehension, but i would love to see more graduation and education to reduce the violence and increase the economics of the community.

Page by page - it's a life lesson for some of our area's most vulnerable.

Everytime i leave the barbershop i feel like i was in school learning something plus feel like a new person with a fresh haircut. Return to index of stories...

TOSS TO OBAMA


WE WANT TO TAKE YOU TO WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS SPEAKING IN THE WHITE HOUSE ABOUT FOREIGN POLICY AND WE'LL LISTEN IN FOR A MINUTE.

---------------------------------------------

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

U.S. officials say the Obama administration is levying deeper sanctions on Russia as the West grapples for a way to quell an insurgency in eastern Ukraine widely believed to be backed by Moscow.

The sanctions are expected to target key areas of the Russian economy, including the defense industry. But officials say the penalties stop short of fully cutting off sectors of the Russian economy, a step the U.S. is holding in reserve in case Moscow launches a full-scale invasion of Ukraine or takes similarly provocative actions.

The U.S. penalties come as officials in Europe weigh whether to levy their own tougher sanctions on Russia.

The officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the penalties publicly by name ahead of the official announcement. Return to index of stories...


OH BODY CAMERA-ON CAM


A LIFE-SAVING RESCUE BY AN OFFICER, CAUGHT ON VIDEO.

THE POLICEMAN'S DEPARTMENT-ISSUED BODY CAMERA WAS ROLLING WHEN HE RESPONDED TO A CALL FOR HELP AFTER A TWO-YEAR-OLD FELL INTO A SWIMMING POOL.

REPORTER MARK ZINNI SHOWS US THE RESCUE. Return to index of stories...


OH BODY CAMERA-PKG


"Ready, go!"

YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT BY THE WAY HE RUNS AROUND, BUT TWO-YEAR-OLD DRANCES IS A SURVIVOR.

"Where's my baby's face? There you are!"

THE LITTLE BOY FROM CLEVELAND PLAYS LIKE ANY KID HIS AGE, BUT HE'S ALSO CURIOUS, AND ON JUNE 17TH, HE WOUND UP GETTING TOO CLOSE TO THE BACK YARD SWIMMING POOL AND FELL IN. DRANCES WAS FOUND LIFELESS BY RELATIVES. THIS IS VIDEO NEVER SEEN BEFORE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A CLEVELAND POLICE OFFICER BODY CAMERA. IT SHOWS THE OFFICER AND THE CHILD'S AUNT WORKING TOGETHER TO SAVE DRANCES.

"Come on buddy, breathe!"

"He was purple, he was lifeless. When they picked him up, he had nothing. He was like shaking, his lips were shaking. It's something I'm never gonna ever forget. Like, sometimes I wake up just thinking about it."

CYNTHIA CONNER SAYS IT ALL HAPPENED SO FAST. HER NEPHEW MANAGED TO GET CLOSE TO THE POOL WITHOUT HIS FLOATIES WHILE SHE WAS IN THE FRONT YARD TALKING TO A POLICE OFFICER WHEN SOMEONE DAMAGED HER FENCE. A FEW MINUTES LATER, SOMEONE FOUND DRANCES IN THE WATER. IT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS TOO LATE. THE POLICE ALREADY ON SCENE ASKED FOR BACKUP, WHICH IS WHEN THIS SECOND-DISTRICT PATROLMAN, A FATHER OF A TWO-YEAR-OLD HIMSELF, HEARD THE CALL.

"At first I was thinking I wasn't going to go, you know, because I was kind of far away, but I ended up, you know, hitting the lights and sirens and going there."

NOW WHEN THE OFFICER ARRIVED, HE CAME RUNNING UP THE DRIVEWAY. HE COULD SEE DRANCES LYING RIGHT HERE. HE KNEW IMMEDIATELY HE HAD TO DO SOMETHING.

"Honestly, I've been a police officer for eight years. I've seen some pretty serious stuff, living in the city, being a police officer in the city. That's probably been the only time I've ever been scared, ever been scared."

"He just went in there, and went right, he took control. He said, I'll do the compression and you breathe. And then did a teamwork, and that's when the EMS showed up. Just talking about it gives me goose bumps."

THE EXCLUSIVE BODY CAM VIDEO SHOWS THE OFFICER AND THE CHILD'S AUNT WORKING TOGETHER, GIVING CHEST COMPRESSION AND BREATHING FOR THE BOY, WHO FINALLY CAME TO. IT WAS CAUGHT ON CAMERA BY ONE OF TWO HUNDRED BODY CAMS BEING TESTED NOW IN A PILOT PROGRAM IN CLEVELAND. Return to index of stories...

TEEN SAFE CARS-TC MON RVL


FOR THE FIRST TIME, EXPERTS PUT OUR A LIST OF RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SAFE, AFFORDABLE VEHICLES FOR TEENS TO DRIVE.

THE INSURANCE INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY CAME OUT WITH THE LIST BECAUSE A LOT OF TEEN DRIVERS *AREN'T DRIVING THE SAFEST CARS ON THE ROAD.

MOST PARENTS, IN FACT, 83 PERCENT BOUGHT USED CARS.

28 PERCENT OF PARENTS BOUGHT MINICARS OR SMALL CARS.

PLUS: A LITTLE MORE THAN HALF OF TEEN'S VEHICLES ARE FROM THE 2006 MODEL YEAR OR EARLIER.

AND OLDER VEHICLES ARE MUCH LESS LIKELY TO HAVE SAFETY FEATURES. Return to index of stories...


TEEN SAFE CARS-PKG


THE SMALL, CHEAPER USED CAR. HAS LONG BEEN THE GO-TO VEHICLE FOR NEW TEENAGE DRIVERS. MAINLY BECAUSE IT'S USUALLY ALL THE PARENT CAN AFFORD.

TEENS LIKE AMBER ROSE,, THE VERY FIRST DEATH ASSOCIATED WITH THE CHEVY COBALT IGNITION SWITCH RECALL

LAURA: I miss her. I miss her very very much. There's nothing that I wouldn't give to just have her back, even if it was just for a day.

THE INSURANCE INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY SAYS MANY CHEAPER, SMALLER CARS ARE JUST NOT SAFE.

"They're driving vehicles that don't provide good crash protection and many drive vehicles that don't have many safety technologies."

TECHNOLOGIES LIKE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL. OR E-S-C.

"It's a life-saving technology. ESC reduces the risk of a fatal single vehicle crash by half. "

HIGHWAY CRASHES ARE THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR TEENAGERS IN THE U-S.

SO, THE INSTITUTE'S COME UP WITH A SPECIFIC LIST OF SAFER CARS FOR TEENAGERS.

"We believe that parents can select a vehicle off this list and have a lot more security knowing that their teen is less likely to be in a crash and when they're in a crash they're going to get really good protection."

THEY ALSO SAY CHECK TO MAKE SURE ANY USED CAR YOU'RE BUYING HASN'T BEEN INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT OR A RECALL. Return to index of stories...


TEEN SAFE CARS-30


HERE'S A LOOK AT SOME OF THE RECOMMENDED CARS.

THOSE COSTING LESS THAN 20 THOUSAND DOLLARS INCLUDE THE BUICK REGAL, HONDA ACCORD SEDAN OR A SMALL SUV LIKE THE HYUNDAI TUCSON
