Snow, Ice, Rain Heading Our Way; Philly Schools Close
02/19/2019 9:54pm

Several hours of snow and sleet are expected Wednesday as a winter storm sweeps into the Philadelphia area, slamming right into the Wednesday afternoon commute. Schools are closing ahead of the storm.Weve issued a First Alert for all neighborhoods from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Schools Close Due to Impending Snow Even before the first flake fell, the Philadelphia School District announced its plan to close public schools Wednesday. All city archdiocesan and parochial schools will also be closed. Other schools could follow suit. Philadelphia courts and Temple University will also be closed.Late Tuesday night, Governor Phil Murphy declared a State of Emergency for New Jersey. Be Prepared: What to Do Before, During and After a Snowstorm Here is what you need to know.Tuesday was chilly but dry. The dry conditions continue into early Wednesday as clouds build.TIMINGThe snow will slowly start to develop during the end of the morning commute along the western edge of our region, including New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties in Delaware, the most western parts of South Jersey and Chester County in Pennsylvania. By late morning into the early afternoon, the snow will spread through the rest of the Pennsylvania suburbs, Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia and New Jersey.In the afternoon, the snow is likely to pick up intensity. The harder it snows, the worse the visibility and the greater amount of snow that will stick. Exact timing and intensity levels are still in question, but it appears to be enough to bring accumulating snow in the afternoon.Because the snow is forecast to pick up steam ahead of the evening commute, and may begin to turn over to sleet and freezing rain during the drive, traffic will likely be slow at best. Slippery and slushy conditions are possible.Wednesday evening the freezing precipitation will change over to just rain. Temperatures will warm overnight, and the Thursday morning commute will not see freezing conditions meaning roadways will improve.ESTIMATED TOTALSTotals are forecast between 3 to 5 inches in northern portions of Delaware, as well as Chester, western Delaware County and lower Berks County. Much of the suburbs, Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia and South Jersey will see 2 to 4 inches of snow and areas farthest east should see the lowest amounts below 2 inches.The rest of the 10-day forecast looks much milder, with highs in the 40s and 50s.Stay with the First Alert weather team for frequent updates on this storm, and download the NBC10 app to track the storm as it affects your neighborhood.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.

Ex-Philly Detective Raped Witnesses and Suspects, DA Says
02/19/2019 5:46pm

A former Philadelphia Police Department detective pleaded not guilty Tuesday to allegations that he sexually assaulted male witnesses and suspects over more than a decade.Philip Nordo allegedly groomed his victims during ongoing investigations and engaged in conduct to make these men more susceptible to his sexually assaultive and/ or coercive behavior, the heavily-redacted grand jury report said.He was denied bail. His next hearing is set for late March.In their report, a Philadelphia grand jury recommended that Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner charge Nordo with several felony counts of rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, sexual assault, indecent assault, stalking and dozens of related charges.A phone call to an attorney previously listed for Nordo was not immediately returned Tuesday.Nordo, 52, was fired in 2017 after serving 20 years on the force in some of the departments most prestigious units including the Homicide Unit.He first joined the police force in 1997 and was promoted to detective in 2002. Seven years later, he was on the Homicide Unit. During that time, Nordo used his position of authority to intimidate, rape and assault men associated with his cases. He then bullied them into silence, heavily-redacted report said.In at least one instance, Nordo stared at and commented on a mans penis while the suspect was under arrest. He also discussed having sexual relationships with his victims over the phone using code words, the grand jury found.He asked incarcerated sources to tell him when so-called homosexual inmates were to be released so he could have sex with them or sexually groom them, according to the report.Much of this behavior occurred during active investigations. He also volunteered to work closely with his victims, including transporting inmates and witnesses for other detectives. These encounters allowed him to identify new victims or conceal his relationships with existing victims, the report said.He often targeted people who were already handcuffed or shackled, according to grand jury findings.He also diverted up to $20,000 from the Mayors Offices Crime Reward Program to his victims he favored. Nordo would pay off his victims using city money, according to prosecutors, with the detective submitting witnesses involvement in investigations to crime reward programs.Victims alleged Nordo would display his firearm during these grooming sessions and would tell suspects no one would believe them if they reported the alleged incidents.In one 2005 encounter, Nordo allegedly forced a robbery suspect to masturbate in front of him. He then gave his victim a cigarette. That victim reported the incident to another officer who then called the departments Internal Affairs Division.Officers from Internal Affairs conducted an interview with the victim, according to the grand jurys report. The victim was murdered 10 years later a case that remains unsolved.The status of the internal investigation remains unclear.A spokesman for the Philadelphia Police Department did not immediately have comment.A spokesman for the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police said the organization will not represent Nordo during his legal battle.The Philadelphia Inquirer reported in July the district attorneys office had agreed not to challenge the dismissal of charges in at least one murder case where Nordo had been accused of having inappropriate contact with several witnesses. A second suspect who had pleaded guilty to charges in the same homicide was granted immediate parole instead of being sentenced to potential decades in prison.Krasnerdeclined to comment on the case during a Tuesday news conference, but said it was far too early to speculate whether past cases involvingNordowill be compromised as a result of the report.Photo Credit: Philadelphia Police Department
