THIS ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER IS STAYING HERE AROUND THE CLOCK TO CARE FOR FRIGHTENED PETS. THIS SHELTER NORMALLY ABLE TO CARE FOR 30 DOGS AND UP TO 60 CATS NOW HAS 100 DOGS AND 100 CATS.>>IT’S VERY HIGH STRESS RIGHT NOW.

SO HERE’S A BEAUTIFUL LOOK, OUR LOCAL 4 STORM PINNER, JENNIFER — ANYWAY, IT’S LIKE THE SOMEONE AWARDS, I’LL STEER CLEAR OF PRONOUNCING THAT. AND SHE IS UP AT PORT HURON AND A BEAUTIFUL SHOT ON THE HURON LADY II, THE AMERICAN FLAG BEAUTIFULLY DISPLAYED JUST IN TIME FOR LABOR DAY. WE CELEBRATE THIS HOLIDAY. 58 DEGREES RIGHT NOW, PRETTY AVERAGE FOR WHAT WE’RE SEEING OUT THERE. MIDDLE 50s TO LOW 60s ALL OVER METRO DETROIT. SOUTHWEST WINDS ARE 8. THE WINDS WILL BE PICKING UP LATE MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON. 62 AT 8:00 A.M. 79 DEGREES AT NOONTIME TODAY. AND 85 DEGREES THE AFTERNOON HIGH. CLOUDS BILLOWING UP WITH THE HEAT OF THE AFTERNOON AND ALSO THE WINDS 10-25 MILES PER HOUR, NONSTORM-RELATED, JUST A BREEZE BLOWING IN THE WARMER AIR THROUGHOUT THE DAY. 4:00, STORMS NEARBY. BUT IT’S 5:00 TO 10:00 P.M., EYES TO THE SKIES, LATE, LATE AFTERNOON AND THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS. THIS IS A LITTLE DICEY. I KNOW WE HAVE ARTS, BEATS & EATS MUSIC LATE TONIGHT, SO AGAIN, WE’LL BE WATCHING THIS CLOSELY AND MAY HAVE TO DODGE A LITTLE BIT OF THIS THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS. BUT WE WANT YOU TO GET OUT AND ENJOY WHAT WILL BE A MOSTLY SPECTACULAR AND WARM SUMMER-LIKE DAY. STORM PREDICTION CENTER FROM NORMAN, OKLAHOMA, THE PROFESSIONALS THERE HAVE PLACED SOUTHEASTERN LOWER, SOUTHERN ONTARIO, UNDER A SLIGHT RISK. A DECENT HANDFUL OF STORMS LIKELY TO POP DURING THAT 5:00 TO 10:00 P.M. HOUR THAT COULD PRODUCE DAMAGING WIND, HAIL, CERTAINLY LIGHTNING AND HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND EVEN AN ISOLATED THRE FOR TORNADOES FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DISCUSSION THIS MORNING. WE HAVE A LITTLE WARM FRONT AND THEM THAT COLD FRONT. AND IT’S THE WARM WINDS COMING IN AHEAD OF THIS COLD FRONT THAT WILL BE THE RECIPE FOR THOSE SHOWERS AND STORMS. WE MENTION SOME OF THE RISKS, BUT IT’S A GOOD MODERATE RISK FOR SEEING STORMS PRODUCING 60-PLUS-MILE-PER-HOUR WINDS. AND STRAIGHT-LINE WIND TYPE POTENTIAL, WHICH IS JUST AS BAD AS A WEAK TORNADO. THE TORNADO THREAT IS VERY LOW. AND DOWN BY THE OHIO AND INDIANA BORDERS, THE GREATEST RISK OF TORNADO LATER TODAY. AND WATCH THE TIME LINE. 4:00 P.M., EVERYTHING IS STILL TO THE NORTH OF US, MOVING THROUGH THE AREA. 5:00, 6:00 P.M., SEEING THE SHOWERS AND STORMS, WITH THIS LINEAR FORMATION. NOT THAT IT’S GONNA MOVE SUPER FAST THROUGH, BUT PROBABLY A 60-90 MINUTE DELAY FOR YOUR PLANS. TOMORROW, COOLER AIR COMES IN. I KNOW THE KIDS ARE HEADING BACK TO SCHOOL. WE’LL HAVE AFTERNOON LIGHT SPOTTY SHOWERS ON TUESDAY. WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY, ONLY IN THE 60s. AGAIN, WITH COOL AIR AND THE WEST-NORTHWEST WINDS TRYING TO BRING SOME LAKE-ENHANCED SPRITZES AND SPRINKLES ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY, THOUGH, GUYS, WE SEE IMPROVEMENT IN TEMPERATURES AND SKY CONDITIONS TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK. HOW’S IT LOOKING ON THE DRIVE FOR THE HOLIDAY?>>Jason: WE HAVE A WATER MAIN BREAK IN LINCOLN PARK, NORTHBOUND FORT STREET PAST EMMONS BOULEVARD. ONLY THE LEFT LANE IS OPEN THERE. SOUTHBOUND I-275 ACCIDENT HAS THE RAMP CLOSED TO NORTHBOUND I-75. THE DETOUR THERE, WE SUGGEST YOU EXIT AT TELEGRAPH TO NEWPORT ROAD AND THEN TO NORTHBOUND I-75. AND THEN THAT SEMI ACCIDENT AT 9 MILE THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT THERE ON THAT SHOT, HAS THE LEFT LANE BLOCKED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS.>>Evrod: BOY, OH, BOY, A LOT OF MESSES OUT THERE! WE’LL LET YOU KNOW WHEN THEY CLEAR.>>Evrod: YOU HAVE TO BE ON TIME OR PAY THE FINE. HALLWAYS AT A SCHOOL IN UTAH ARE A LOT EMPTIER AFTER A NEW POLICY REQUIRING STUDENTS TO PAY A FINE WHEN THEY’RE LATE.>>Jason: THE FIRST OFFENSE IS A WARNING. THE SECOND OFFENSE IS A $3 FINE. ANY OFFENSE AFTER THAT IS $5. A STUDENT CAN’T PAY THE FEES, THEY CAN OPT FOR LUNCH DETENTION OR SHOW A CLEAN TARDY RECORD THE MONEY WILLGO INTO A FUND TOWARD STUDENT INCENTIVES.>>Evrod: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?>>Jason: AS LONG AS THEY’RE NOT FORCED TO PAY, I’M OKAY WITH IT.>>Evrod: IN LIFE, IF YOU SHOW UP LATE TO WORK, YOU CAN GET FIRED. SO IN A WAY, YOU LOSE MONEY, TOO, YOU HAVE TO PAY A FINE. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH IT.>>Jason: IF YOU’RE FEELING HUNGRY AND WANT TO GRAB FAST FOOD, IT MIGHT B AS EASY AS SAYING “CHEESE.”>>Evrod: AT KFC IN CHINA, THEY CA PAY FOR THEIR FOO WITH THEIR FACE. IT’S OFFICIAL RECOGNITION SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS SMILE PAY. THEY SCAN THEIR FACES AT AN ORDERING KIOSK AND ENTERING A PHONE NUMBER.>>Jason: THE FIRST COMMERCIAL USE OF THE TECHNOLOGY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.>>Evrod: I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW IT WORKS. IF IT WORKS IN CHINA, THEY MIGHT BRANCH OUT TO OTHER PLACES.>>Jason: WE’LL SEE.>>Evrod: HERE AT HOME, METRO DETROITERS CAME TOGETHER TO SUPPORT THOSE AFFECTED BY HARVEY. YOU CONTRIBUTED THOUSANDS OF SPLOIS TO THIS CAUSE.>>Jason: THEY HELPED PACK A VINTAGE WORLD WAR II PLANE DURING THE THUNDER OVER MICHIGAN AIR SHOW IN YPSILANTI. THE PLANE’S PILOT IS TAKING THE ITEMS TO AREAS THAT HAVEN’T BEEN REACHED BECAUSE OF FLOODWATERS.>>Evrod: ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCREEN, DETROITERS WORKED HARD TO STUFF A SEMI.

THE FLOODING COULD BE A WAKE-UP CALL TO MAKE SURE YOUR HOME IS WATERPROOF. WE HAVE MORE.>>Reporter: THERE IS NO WAY TO KEEP A HOME DRY IN 5 FEET OF RAIN, PERIOD! BUT STORMS TODAY ARE INCREASINGLY STRONG AND WET AND EVEN A BRIEF STORM CAN CAUSE WATER DAMAGE. SOME HOMEOWNERS MAY NOT EVEN KNOW THEY HAVE A PROBLEM.>>WE TRY TO TELL HOMEOWNERS, IT’S WHERE YOU CAN’T SEE THE CAUSE IS THE WORST DAMAGE. WHEN YOUR BASEMENT LEAK, IT DOESN’T DECIDE TO LEAK ONE DAY.
