WATCH: Cell phone video of the landing The plane really never loses momentum, Phillips said.Phillips said its not only what you are seeing in the video, but what youre not hearing.Most importantly, there was no, Brace, brace, get ready for the impact, and thats why we have so many concussions because people just hit the seat in front of them, Phillips said.Phillips is representing 25 passengers who were on board the 737.The National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary report indicating the plane encountered heavy rain as it began the descent and switched to a different runway where the weather seemed better.

05/25/2019 11:45am

Temperatures are expected to hit nearly triple digits in some parts of our area this holiday weekend and experts warn you to take precautions to avoid excessive exposure outdoors during the heat wave.Parents are doing what they can to allow their kids to play outside at Landon Park and survive the sizzling heat.Many children started to play early on Saturday at the park, then headed back inside.You have to keep them hydrated and just keep an eye on them. Make sure they are doing alright and take them in and out of air conditioning every once in a while, parent Albert Kilentezni said.Other parents resort to cold treats such as Popsicles and ice cream to keep their kids cool and hydrated.Many parents said they chose the park because of its large trees and the shade they provide.Staying in the shade, this park in San Marco is nice because it has a lot of tree coverage and the playground equipment doesnt get too hot, parent Leslie Cummings said.Dr. David El Hassan with St. Vincents Primary Care said extreme heat accounts for roughly 1,500 deaths each year, all of which are preventable.Hassan provided tips to help you and your family stay safe during the heat wave: Avoid working in the heat. Take breaks frequently. Drink plenty of water, even when youre not thirsty. Remember to check on children and elderly often because they are most at risk for heat-related conditions. If left untreated, heat exhaustion can be deadly and lead to heat stroke. Heat cramps in the legs and abdomen can be an early sign of heat exhaustion. Get out of the heat immediately if you start having cramps or feel confused.

Firefighters gain ground against 600-acre wildfire
05/25/2019 8:10am

The wildfire has disrupted life in northern Jacksonville and Nassau County since Wednesday afternoon and has spread across 600 acres, but dozens of Florida Forest Service and Jacksonville Fire-Rescue personnel, aided by bulldozers and helicopter water drops, had increased containment to 60 by Saturday night.Jenese crews are working through the night to make sure they keep a close eye on the fire. Fire trucks and their equipment are still lining the road here along I-95, and all of their work is helping.Weve got the dozers on scene, weve got our type-6 engines our water support from the engines with a marsh master, said Mike Work, manager of the Florida Forestry Service. Crews worked to secure the fire lines to stop any more flames from jumping I-95.Thats what they faced on Thursday forcing officials to shut down the highway but today traffic flowed slowly as crews hit these hot spots.Justin Young remembers how the detours impacted his neighborhood.I literally seen people park their cars over here and walked back here to neighborhood, Young said. About a 1/4 mile into the woods were burned trees and ashes covering the ground.As smoked billowed along the highway, crews used hoses as the helicopter dropped water from above trying to keep it contained. This piece to the north is the hottest part of the fire. Some of its creeping out to 95 still and theres un-burned green pockets in there that are burning out, Work said. So far, the Florida Forestry service says the fire is holding at just over 600 acres, but theres one thing needed more than ever.Rain, Work said. Yeah, we need some rain.Officials said thankfully there have been no evacuations. Another update is expected some point during the morning.SPECIAL SECTION: News4Jax.com/wildfiresVIEW: Interactive traffic map and DOT camsMORE ONLINE: FL511.comIMAGES: Wildfire burning near Nassau-Duval County line If I-95 were to close again... The detours used Thursday night would be implemented: I-95 northbound: exit I-295 exit 362. At I-295, drivers can go either east or west. I-95 southbound: east on S.R. 200, south on U.S. 17 There are three other ways to get into and out of Nassau County: Heckscher Drive to the Buccaneer Trail over the Nassau Sound Bridge and west on S.R. 200 U.S. 1 north into Callahan, then east on S.R. 200 Interstate 10 to U.S. 301 into Callahan and then east on S.R. 200 Smoke concerns The FHP continues to monitor conditions in the area and warned drivers that visibility may deteriorate quickly due to fog and smoke-type conditions. Drivers are urged to slow down, use caution and turn on low-beam headlights.If you come into an area of low visibility -- whether its fog, smoke or something like that -- the rules of the road still apply. Youve got to maintain proper control of your vehicle, be observant while driving, reduce your speed and utilize your headlights and just drive as safe as possible, Bryan said. Absolutely turn your headlights on because visibility is reduced. Not only can you see a little bit better, everybody else can see you, as well. With that being said, we use low-beam headlights. We dont use emergency flashers when the vehicle is in motion. So utilize low-beam headlights and drive cautiously through the area.Not only is the smoke a concern for drivers, but its also a concern for those who live near the area where the wildfire started.The National Weather Service Jacksonville said smoke, worse at night, can hurt your eyes, irritate your respiratory system, and worsen chronic heart and lung diseases. What we know about the Yellow Bluff Fire The Yellow Bluff Fire began as two separate fires on Wednesday afternoon, and spot-overs increased the size of the fire as it moved west toward I-95 and jumped the highway. West of the highway is more wilderness area -- the Seton Creek Preserve and the Four Creeks Wildlife Management Area. Though most of it is considered to be marsh and swamplands, its not wet enough to keep from catching fire.What was holding water two months ago is not holding water on the surface, so those surface fuels are now exposed. They have been curing under the sun -- the hot, dry sun. Low humidity cures it all, Work said. Then once you get fire to it, it burns across the top.According to Forestry Services Winter, the fires appeared to have started Wednesday afternoon near the train tracks that run parallel to Main Street, but it was too early to determine whether the fires were started by sparks from a moving train.It could have been something thrown out of the train. It could have been exhaust. Sometimes, it is the catalytic converter. Sometimes its the friction from the brakes, Winter said. This time of year, we are going to see more human-caused fires, but people need to be very careful.The Florida Department of Agriculture is assisting the Forest Service with the investigation into the cause.
