FIRST WEATHER-WX


Scattered downpours into this afternoon

Winds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico will continue to pump scattered downpours into Southwest Florida this morning and afternoon. With additional cloud cover from the rain and isolated thunder, temperatures should peak in the mid-day hours in the upper 80s.

Scattered showers will remain possible this evening, most especially for communities along and east of I-75.

On Friday, we'll begin to enter a more transitional phase for our weather as we change around the wind flow. Wind winds coming in from the north pulling in from a slightly drier air mass, the coverage of rain on Friday should be a bit more isolated than today.

For the upcoming weekend temperatures look to return to the low and mid 90s with late afternoon and early evening sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms. Return to index of stories...

NOT EVERYONE IS ON BOARD WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA'S PLAN TO DEAL WITH THE BORDER CRISIS.

THIS, AS MORE STATES SAY "NO" TO TEMPORARY HOUSING FOR IMMIGRANTS.

MICHELLE KOSINSKI REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


BOARDER CRISIS-PKG


CONGRESS IS NOW DOWN TO DAYS-- ALL THAT'S LEFT THIS SUMMER TO APPROVE FUNDING, CHANGE THE PROCESS-- TO DEAL WITH THE THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES, CHILDREN, THAT HAVE STIRRED THIS NATION'S EMOTIONS.

LAST NIGHT THE PRESIDENT MET WITH THE CONGRESSIONAL HISPANIC CAUCUS-- MANY THOUGH NOT ALL OF WHOM FIERCELY OPPOSE CHANGING THE LAW THAT GIVES ALL CENTRAL AMERICAN KIDS A CHANCE TO PLEAD THEIR CASES FOR ASYLUM HERE.

"It was a very emotional meeting but emotional in the sense that we were connected to one another. The pain that we feel about children at the border and the pain that we feel given that a thousand people will be deported today and two million have been deported, that pain that our community is going - the destructive nature of our broken immigration system."

THE WHITE HOUSE ALSO BRIEFED THE SENATE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS LAST NIGHT. ASKING FOR NEARLY 4 BILLION DOLLARS-- AND A CHANGE IN THE LAW-- WITH VERY MIXED REACTIONS:

"Nothing is going to improve until the plane loads of children return to the country that they left."

"The average cost of dealing with an unaccompanied minor was $250 to $1,000 a day. That is unbelievable."

MANY REPUBLICANS WANT TO CHANGE THAT BUSH-ERA ANTI-TRAFFICKING LAW THAT GIVES KIDS FROM COUNTRIES NOT BORDERING THE US A LEGAL SHOT AT ASYLUM THAT MOST KIDS FROM, SAY, MEXICO, DON'T GET-- EVEN THOUGH MOST WILL BE SENT HOME ANYWAY.

A LAW THAT MANY OF THESE SAME LAWMAKERS VOTED FOR AT THE TIME-- NOT KNOWING THIS SURGE OF UNACCOMPANIED MINORS WOULD START AROUND 2012. THE SAME YEAR PRESIDENT OBAMA ALLOWED MANY IMMIGRANTS BROUGHT HERE AS CHILDREN-- TO STAY.

THE LEGAL PROCESS NOW CAN TAKE YEARS-- TEMPORARY HOUSING IS NEEDED AROUND THE COUNTRY-- BUT SEVERAL STATES, EVEN SOME DEMOCRATS RUNNING THOSE STATES-- ARE SAYING NO TO THE WHITE HOUSE -- AND INSIST IT'S THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S BURDEN:

"The Congress of the U.S. should appropriate $3.7 billion dollars which the president has asked for." Return to index of stories...

TWO OF THE BANK ROBBERY SUSPECTS WOULD DIE.

SO WOULD THE HOSTAGE.

SHE WAS THIS MAN'S COUSIN.

"She was just an innocent bystander going to pull out money. She left her kid in the car. She goes inside. Whatever happened happened. Her daughter has to text her husband to say, hey, they took mom.'"

HE SAYS HE DIDN'T KNOW SHE WAS INVOLVED UNTIL IT WAS TOO LATE.

THREE ARMED MEN, AT LEAST ONE WITH AN ASSAULT RIFLE, STORMED THIS BANK IN STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA, WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

THEY WALKED OUT WITH MORE THAN JUST MONEY.

THEY LEFT WITH THREE HOSTAGES.

"This is not something you want to hear in the middle of the day. You don't wake up or go to your job thinking something like this is going to happen to you -- or happen at all."

AT DIFFERENT TIMES DURING THE POLICE CHASE, TWO OF THE HOSTAGES WERE THROWN FROM OR JUMPED OUT OF THE VEHICLE.

"Stop and get the hostage. Get the hostage. Take care of the hostage."

ONE WAS GRAZED BY A BULLET. THE OTHER HAD BEEN SHOT.

AT THIS POINT, POLICE DON'T KNOW FOR SURE WHETHER IT WAS THE BANK ROBBERS OR THE POLICE GUNFIRE THAT KILLED THE OTHER HOSTAGE.

"We were very concerned about them entering another business, some place open to the community, going into a residence and taking a family, so there was a lot on the line."

"They've taken hostages, they've harmed hostages, and we don't know what's next."

WE DID SOME DIGGING AND TRACKED DOWN ONE OF THE GIRLS INVOLVED TO THIS HOME AND WHEN I STOPPED BY THE ADDRESS A MAN WHO SAYS HE IS ONE OF THE TEENS FATHERS CAME TO THE DOOR.

Is there anything you have to say about it?

Is there anything I have to say about it? Yeah, they're very remorseful for what they did. They're gonna' go through the court system and get it all figured out okay. Okay. Whatever the court system hands down, that's what they're gonna' do.

HE SAID DIDN'T WANT TO COME ANY CLOSER TO ME - OR GIVE ME HIS NAME BECAUSE HE SAYS SINCE THIS HAPPENED HIS FAMILY HAS RECEIVED DEATH THREATS. HE'S ALSO SAYS HE TOO IS OUTRAGED AT WHAT HE SAYS HIS DAUGHTER DID.

That's sick, that's sick to do what they did. I didn't see it. I didn't see it on tv and I don't care. I was there when they found it. You know, the tortoise, I was there when the wildlife we talked for an hour, they talked for an hour. And they know there's a court date coming up and it's all going to be handled from there.

AGAIN - WE'RE NOT SHOWING YOU THE MOST GRAPHIC PARTS OF THE CELL PHONE VIDEO BUT IT SHOWS THE TEENS LIGHTING THE TORTOISE ON FIRE AND THEN KILLING IT IN BRUTAL FASHION.

AND WHEN THE VIDEO SHOWED UP ON SOCIAL MEDIA, IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE IT HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE RESPONDING. NOW THE DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE IS INVESTIGATING AND CONSIDERING CHARGES AGAINST THE TEENS.

We has an officer who was dispatched to investigate she started the investigation and fwc is presently working with SAO to determine what charges may be filed and one thing i want to add is we appreciate people taking the time to let us know about us so we can get involved.

THE MAN I TALKED TO SAYS HE KNOWS HIS DAUGHTER WILL BE PUNISHED. NOW HE'S TRYING TO HANDLE THE FALLOUT OF WHAT'S HAPPENED TO HIS FAMILY.

They're gonna' face the wrath of what happened. The court's gonna' handle it. I don't think all this damn threats that i'm getting on facebook. And all that. I'm not getting. There's no more facebook in this house, there's no more smart phones. Return to index of stories...

"It wasn't even real until we were sitting down in that in pretty much the fetal position."

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF EIGHT INCH THICK CONCRETE WALLS THE FARMERS CO- OP SECURITY CAMERAS ROLLED. AS 200 MILE PER HOUR WIND GUSTS RIPPED PILGER TO PIECES. SLOW THE VIDEO DOWN. AND SPARKS FROM SNAPPING ELECTRIC LINES LIGHT OF THE STREETS. ONLY FEET FROM PROPANE TANKS LEAKING FUEL. EVEN A LIGHTNING BOLT CAUGHT ON CAMERA.

"How quick it moves in and throws that stuff around it. You know it is pretty amazing."

"This vault saved Aaron, Ryan and four of there co-workers. Because it doesn't have windows they couldn't see what was going on outside."

"When they escaped, all they could see was rubble. and now because of there security video, they can see how it happened and just how lucky they are to be alive."

"We were all kind of getting sweaty in general just watching it. Reliving it basically."

We didn't hear a whole lot our ears popping some windows breaking. Some boards smashing."

AS THE DUST SETTLED. SURVIVORS COOLERS AND THE VAULT IN THE CO-OP STORE. EMERGING INTO AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT LANDSCAPE, THAN THE ONE THEY LEFT MINUTES EARLIER.

"I feel real lucky.That's why we made sure to save the vault that is at the office there. I think it saved our lives." Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-WX WALL


!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!

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.

Scattered downpours into this afternoon

Winds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico will continue to pump scattered downpours into Southwest Florida this morning and afternoon. With additional cloud cover from the rain and isolated thunder, temperatures should peak in the mid-day hours in the upper 80s.

Scattered showers will remain possible this evening, most especially for communities along and east of I-75.

On Friday, we'll begin to enter a more transitional phase for our weather as we change around the wind flow. Wind winds coming in from the north pulling in from a slightly drier air mass, the coverage of rain on Friday should be a bit more isolated than today.

For the upcoming weekend temperatures look to return to the low and mid 90s with late afternoon and early evening sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms. Return to index of stories...

TWO HIGH-PROFILE CRIMINAL CASES HAVE RECENTLY TURNED THE SPOTLIGHT ON SECRET LIVES AND AFFAIRS -- PERHAPS PERPETUATED BY TECHNOLOGY.

REPORTER JOE JOHNS DIGS DEEPER INTO SEX, LIES, AND TECHNOLOGY. Return to index of stories...


SEX LIES AND TECHNOLOGY-PKG


A MARRIED GOOGLE EXECUTIVE, FATHER OF FIVE, BY ALL ACCOUNTS A GREAT DAD, MEETS A YOUNG WOMAN ON A WEB SITE CALLED SEEKING ARRANGEMENT.COM -- A LIASON ON A YACHT, AN OVERDOSE OF HEROIN, AND THE EXECUTIVE ENDS UP DEAD.

A FATHER OF A 22-MONTH-OLD BOY ALLEGEDLY MESSAGES SIX WOMEN, SENDING AND RECEIVING EXPLICIT TEXTS INCLUDING NUDE IMAGES, WHILE HIS SON IS DYING IN A HOT CAR.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

HAS TECHNOLOGY MADE HAVING AN AFFAIR, LIVING A SECRET LIFE, TOO TEMPTING FOR SOME TO RESIST?

JESSICA CARBINO OF U-C-L-A IS AN ONLINE DATING EXPERT.

"The online component of an anonymous interaction with individuals with whom you may never have any contact with, with whom you dont have to give your real name, your address, any really any information that can theoretically be used against you while you are in the process of having the affair is definitely appealing to someone who wants to engage in that type of lifestyle."

SECRET LIFE HOOKUP CULTURE AMONG THOSE ALREADY IN A RELATIONSHIP USED TO BE MOSTLY ON THE "DOWN LOW" IN AMERICA -- NOT EXACTLY ADVERTISED.

BUT IT IS STEADILY CREEPING OVER TO MAINSTREAM, INEVITABLE PERHAPS WITH THE RISE OF SOCIAL MEDIA -- EVEN SOME SITES THAT PROMOTE THE RELATIONSHIP CATEGORY NOW KNOWN AS "MARRIED BUT DATING."

TO SEE THE REACH OF ONLINE INFIDELITY THESE DAYS YOU NEED LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THIS CHRIS BROWN VIDEO TITLED, "LOYAL" WITH 97-MILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE: A YOUNG WOMAN RECEIVING A MESSAGE FROM THE NOW FAMOUS ASHLEY MADISON "HAVE AN AFFAIR" WEB SITE.

THOMAS URIE/HAS TRIED ENERGY DRINKS

RUNS:

:15 Personally they make me out of focus. Yeah, you get your energy, but you lose focus, you lose concentration. They make you speed up I think a little bit more than you should.

SEVERAL STUDIES SHOW A CONNECTION BETWEEN CONSUMPTION AND INCREASED BLOOD PRESSURE AND HEART CONTRACTIONS OR ABNORMAL RHYTHM. THAT'S WHAT HAS DOCTORS CONCERNED.

DR. MURALI MUPPALA/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

3:22: Absolutely, these are the drinks that have a very high concentration of caffeine and also taurines and other ingredients who's affects we may not know for a long time.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Energy drink-related emergency room visits have doubled over the past four years http:/www.cbsnews.com/news/energy-drink-related-er-visits-doubled-in-4-years/, according to government estimates, most cases involving teens and young adults. The biggest threat may be to someone with an undiagnosed heart condition.

DR. MURALI MUPPALA/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

1:21 They are prone for life threatening rhythm problems, especially when you take lots of energy drinks.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO LOOK OUT FOR:

A RACING HEART, SKIPPING OR JUMPING HEARTBEAT, JITTERINESS OR EXTENDED DIZZINESS.

WHILE SOME MAY BE FINE WITH AN OCCASIONAL BOOST- IT GIVES THOMAS PAUSE FOR THOUGHT.
