news chase

    Good morning, Feeders! Don’t forget your umbrellas; we’re in for some rain and possible flooding — which we’ll bring you a story on later.

    Tom MacDonald is looking beyond the rivers to see what type of flooding is expected from local creeks and how nearby residents are preparing. He’s also checking in on the City Council meeting and working on a couple items for the weekend.

    Lizz Fiedler is already out at a meeting with an assistant district attorney, and she’ll bring us more from the Archdiocese later today.

    Jen Howard is talking some experts about Phliadelphia’s population change and what contributed to it. Think bodegas, retirement community and tight jeans.
