Oppressively Hot and Muggy as Storms Threaten, Again
08/20/2019 7:49am

Another scorching heat wave has descended upon the Philadelphia region, bringing dangerously high humidity, triple-digit feels-like temperatures and isolated strong storms.A First Alert for muggy heat and scattered storms lasts through Wednesday evening for the entire region. The humidity is making the already high temperatures feel even more oppressive. How to Keep Your Pet Cool This Summer The muggy meter through Thursday remains at the oppressive level, which could fuel storms, First Alert Weather meteorologist Bill Henley said.Strong to severe thunderstorms are a concern as the mugginess builds Tuesday as temps approach the mid 90s.The storms, however, could be less widespread Tuesday, but cant be ruled out. A heavy downpour is possible in Delaware and South Jersey midday and in Philly, the Pennsylvania suburbs and South Jersey later in the afternoon.Feels-like temps should push toward triple digits on Tuesday, but not quite as hot as Monday when the feels-like hit 105 in some neighborhoods. Wednesday will cool off slightly, but the humidity will still be oppressive, along with the feels-like temperatures hovering in the mid to upper 90s.The hottest time of the day will be from around 10 a.m. to 3 to 4 p.m., First Alert Weather meteorologist Steve Sosna said.Due to the urban heat island effect, in which buildings and concrete retain heat, some of the most oppressive conditions will be felt in urban areas. It will probably be a good five to seven degrees warmer in the urban areas, especially at night, Sosna said.The heat will pose a threat to everyone, so people should remember to stay hydrated drinking mostly water and keeping alcohol to a minimum, avoid prolonged periods of direct sun exposure and reapply sunscreen every few hours.Keeping your body cool will be key. You can take a cool shower or find a pool. If you dont have air conditioning, you can look for a place like a shopping center, library or movie theater that does. People should also leave windows at least slightly cracked to allow air to recirculate inside their homes, Sosna said.Its important to give your body a break because the heat adds extra stress because your body is working harder to cool itself off, Sosna said.Extra precautions should be taken for young children, the elderly and pets.The latest heat wave is the fifth of the season and is being caused by heat from the southern part of the U.S. moving north, Sosna said. In Philadelphia, the highest temperature resulting from the heat waves has been 98 degrees, while the highest feels-like temperature has been 110 degrees.Once the heat breaks after Thursday, more comfortable and mostly clear conditions are expected through the weekend with plenty of sunshine and highs around 80.For the latest on the heat wave, tune into the NBC10 News First Alert Weather Team on air and download our app to be prepared for the pop-up storms.Photo Credit: Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

3-Year-Old Girl, Separated From Father at Border, Sent to Aunt 2 Months Later
08/19/2019 10:35pm

A 3-year-old girl from Honduras was united with her aunt in Frisco, Texas, on Monday after she became separated from her father crossing the border two months ago.The girl somehow ended up in Redding, Pennsylvania, and was escorted to DFW Airport Monday afternoon by a social worker.Waiting for the flight to arrive in Terminal E, her aunt, Glenda Aleman, could hardly contain her emotions.Ive waited for this moment for a long time, Aleman said in Spanish.Clutching balloons that say Princess, she waited for her young niece she had met before only on video chats and seen in photos.NBC DFW is not identifying the girl because of her age and because its unclear what shes gone through during the separation.Aleman says the girls father was targeted by criminal gangs in Honduras and wanted to escape the violence.The two crossed the border in June intending to apply for asylum.The father, Osman Dubon-Venegas, was arrested and remains in jail in New Mexico. According to court records, he faces a charge of re-entering the U.S. after he was deported in 2012. He also had been previously convicted of vandalism.The first two weeks after his arrest, the girls family says they had no idea where she was.It was a very difficult time not knowing about her, Aleman said.Somehow the girl ended up in Pennsylvania with a nonprofit group, which arranged for a flight to DFW so she can stay with her aunt.A social worker escorted the child for the cross-country trip.As other passengers claimed their baggage, the girl hugged her aunt and cousin, who also is 3-years-old.Its a scene being repeated as children become separated from their parents crossing the border, only to be united weeks or months later with relatives already living in the U.S.The outcome of her fathers court case is far from clear.And her mother Shes still back home in Honduras. She spoke with us via Facetime.I feel more at peace because shes now with my sister, said Lucia Patricia Aleman Garay. This process has been the most difficult in my life.She said she has no idea when shell see her daughter -- or her husband -- again.Asked about the case, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement referred questions to another agency, Customs and Border Protection.A CBP spokeswoman in Houston said she would work on providing information on Tuesday.Photo Credit: NBC 5 News

Inside the Secretive Media Outlet That Became One of Trump's Biggest Supporters
08/20/2019 7:46am

By the numbers, there is no bigger advocate of President Donald Trump on Facebook than The Epoch Times. The small New York-based nonprofit news outlet has spent more than $1.5 million on about 11,000 pro-Trump advertisements in the last six months, according to data from Facebooks advertising archive more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself, and more than most Democratic presidential candidates have spent on their own campaigns, NBC News reported.Those video ads in which unidentified spokespeople thumb through a newspaper to praise Trump, peddle conspiracy theories about the Deep State, and criticize fake news media strike a familiar tone in the online conservative news ecosystem. The Epoch Times looks like many of the conservative outlets that have gained followings in recent years. But it isnt. Twitter Shuts Chinese Accounts Targeting Hong Kong Protests Behind the scenes, the media outlets ownership and operation is closely tied to Falun Gong, a Chinese spiritual community with the stated goal of taking down Chinas government. Its also linked to Shen Yun a dance troupe known for its ubiquitous advertising and unsettling performances.Former practitioners of Falun Gong told NBC News that believers think the world is headed toward a judgment day, where those labeled communists will be sent to a kind of hell, and those sympathetic to the spiritual community will be spared. Trump is viewed as a key ally in the anti-communist fight, former Epoch Times employees said.
