6:00 am
justin, what can you tell us. >> reporter: brooke and joe, good morning. as we mentioned we have one lane of traffic, that you can see traffic trickling south here past that chestnut overpass where this wreck appears to have happened overnight. two and a half hours or so ago. this tractor trailer here we understand apparently lost control, and skidded in the right side wall of the overpass. we have that ladder 16 truck that has back end damage that appears to have within struck as well. it has been towed. work is underway to toe this tractor trailer from this scene as well. but backup here north we have had traffic across all lanes blocked for more than two hours, lots of frustration here on the roadway but the relief has come. we know at least five people were transported to hahnemann hospital. all fire fighters. we understand the condition is stable at this time. now we also have heard of one other transport to jefferson
6:01 am
working to find out who that person is and they are condition as well. this can affect traffic for some time here, lots of frustration here but they are getting relief. traffic is moving south and making progress from what we have seen here overnight. we will keep you updated throughout the morning but i'll toss to meisha watching it in house, meisha. >> we will take from it there. meisha is joining with us a look at these detours around all this mess. justin was giving you a view of what was going on the scene there we are talking about that accident, i-95 south between vine and columbus boulevard. what we are seeing leading up to where justin is, right now it is where it is still block. they are opening up a lane right now. these are vehicles taking the vine. i would still suggest getting on to the vine if you can. it will be very, very slow
6:02 am
trying to squeeze by there on interstate i-95. i can tell you this right now when i came in at 3:00 o'clock in the morning already it was slammed with vehicles. this is a backup shot, all the way back to i-95 at girard moving in the southbound direction. the these backups extend beyond that as you can see almost as far as the eye can sianni it is only 6:00 o'clock in the morning. if you can avoid interstate i-95 you will want to. if you can't, i would probably take the vine until more than one lane is opened, in that area. but right now i want to give you an idea what it looks like at girard and beyond even though they have now opened up one lane there. one drivable lane for all these vehicles. still very slow. take an alternate you will want to i-95 south your best alternate right now take the boulevard southbound to broad street or the schuylkill eastbound it is still your best bet, over to you, katie. >> very difficult situation for commuters this morning.
6:03 am
and to add to that unfortunately we have wet weather that is bringing more nuisance on top of it. it is not a deluge but we have pockets of steadier rain most noteably through new castle county. since our cold front passage that we have been tracking a couple days there is a distinct back edge to this and we could see a shower this is afternoon we are bearing brunt of that front currently. we have to turn our focus to the tropic. remnants of tropical depression number eight north of bermuda but focus on tropical storm hermine and still spinning and churning over northeastern gulf of mexico and that at the this point has a better chance to hug the coast more readily. that will lead to a downhill turn on our holiday weekend. right now we are back in the low to mid 70's regional wide, cooler in the mountains but as the day progresses it will warm up to a value of 84 degrees but it is not as hot as yesterday and it will start to turn gradually less and less humid with a

southbound one lane opened after a tractor trailer crashed with the fire truck overnight. it happened in the southbound lanes just before the columbus boulevard exit. authorities tell thaws fire fighters were on the scene of an accident when a tractor trailer rear ended their ladder truck. five fire fighters were hurt in the crash and we are told they are in stable condition. tropical storm hermine is gaining strength and taking aim at florida's gulf coast. >> people started to leave yesterday as storm brought rain and already some flooding to the area. florida governor rick scott declared emergency and more than 50 counties project to be in the storm's path. hurricane madeline was upgraded to a tropical storm as it hit hawaii. hawaii island public schools were closed in anticipation of the storm. flash flood warnings has been issued on the big island and maui county. people have than encouraged to stay inside. so lets go back to hermine. how are we looking. >> it looks like it will be a downhill turn in terms of the
6:13 am
portions of our weekend forecast, big holiday weekend coming up, so here it is, latest on what is going on. i want to start by backing up to the here and now. we are looking at current frontal boundary where rain and damp conditions are coming from. off shore that bubble of satellite there that you see that is what is remnant moisture from what is left at this point of tropical depression number eight and then hermine sitting and churning over northeast gulf of mexico. the front that is crossing through right now should have been, what was going to nudge hermine out to sea. already moving through. we have lost that window of timing opportunity. so as high pressure takes the place of that, in tandem with the warm water we will have a system that is a weak category one hurricane before downgrading for the the tropical storm. it looks like a post tropical cyclone, but regardless this track is getting a little too close for comfort by the time
6:14 am
we hit the weekend. specifically this sunday. rain and strong wind are possible at that point. for now we have a gray sky. certainly muggy outside middletown ship high school and every where else. rain is still currently falling in a handfull of spots. regardless we have damp roads as we travel this morning. temperature meanwhile hits mid 80's. not as hot as yesterday was. it is less humid. tomorrow and at least portion of the saturday is looking good. tomorrow especially lovely and by the time late saturday and especially sunday hermine is on the horizon or already here bringing in some strong surf dangerous rip currents and certainly some rain and wind as well, meisha. >> all right, katie. we are still tracking this accident on i-95 pushing in the southbound direction. good morning. just waking up with us, what i'm referring to is i-95 south and vine and columbus boulevard, this is leading up to that. all these vehicles are pushed on to the vine because all lanes are still block, about 20 minutes ago we were hearing
6:15 am
reports that one lane was opened, what that was, was one lane was opened for those vehicles that were stuck between where the road closed down. a lot of vehicles had closed around or reversed trying to get out of where they were pinned there to get on the vine. what we were seeing is they were all stuck, only let something people on to the vine and vehicle sitting there for two hours. now they will open one lane to let those vehicles pinned in there through but no one else can get through there. we are dealing with all lanes block. this is a backup, that extent all the way past 95 south at girard and all of these vehicles are heading toward the vine to get on the vine. you can imagine it is getting very busy there. this is another alternate boulevard southbound at broad street and schuylkill eastbound. probably your best betty can tell you that the congestion levels are significant on the vine. we have a lot more coming up, don't go anywhere we will take a quick break cbs-3 "eyewitness news" will be right
