THEIR UNION LEGAL IN THE EYES OF THE STATE.

00:06:19 "It's outstanding it was very emotional for us."

TODAY'S RULING BY CHIEF CIRCUIT JUDGE LUIS GARCIA MARKS THE 25TH

CONSECUTIVE RULING IN FAVOR OR MARRIAGE EQUALITY.

00:09:34 "It's happening, we're excited/00:09:46 finally it was just

tears of joy"

RIGHT NOW- THE RULING ONLY APPLIES TO MONROE COUNTY

NBC2 UNCOVERED- THAT WHILE THE CLERK OF COURTS IN LEE, COLLIER, AND

CHARLOTTE HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO GRANT MARRIAGE LICENSES FOR SAME SEX

COUPLES -

LEGALLY THEY CAN'T.

FOR STARTERS- THEY WEREN'T PART OF THE LAWSUIT IN MONROE COUNTY

AND IF THEY DID- IT'D BE CONSIDERED A MISDEMEANOR-

SOME PEOPLE WITH SPOKE WITH SAY THEY HOPE THE CHANGES IN THE NEAR FUTURE

00:14:52 "I think its a good thing, do you think other counties like

Lee County need to jump onboard? Absolutely"

09:31:14 The weather comes from everywhere and you're kind of trapped. 09:33

PILOT AND FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR LUB-O-MIR GU' R -GUEV IS TALKING ABOUT THIS. IT'S THE RADAR AT THE EXACT TIME THAT PILOT GREGG HOWARD LEFT PAGE FIELD.

14:17 It's not recommended for any pilot to go in weather like this. 14:21

THAT WAS ALSO THE WARNING FROM AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL TO HOWARD.

BUT DESPITE THIS WARNING FROM AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL HOWARD TAKES OFF ANYWAY.

21:00 that precip is about a mile and a half away from the airport now.

USING THE RECORDED TRAFFIC.

NBC 2 EXCLUSIVELY TRACKS THE WARRENS FLIGHT.

AT 5:37 THE Pilot Leaves Page Field

AT 5:39 HE Requests Weather Conditions

20:39 There's a five mile wide band of precip between the airport and 10 miles away. 20:45

AT 5:48 HE'S TOLD THE Airport Closed to Visual Flights.

Nat SOT: 20:15 I've got 270-degrees of this airport blocked by precipitation. 20:21

HE'S Told to communicate with RSW BUT THAT NEVER HAPPENED.

15:41 If you're alone and you're in weather like this and you're not in communication with air service you don't know anything. 15:48
