What's the price of driving into the scene of a shooting? Lyft says $5. | Helen Ubiñas

She had just dropped off a passenger around 12:45 a.m. in South Philly, and was on her way to pick up another when a fleet of cop cars squealed past her near 26th and Tasker, boxing her in.

    What's the price of driving into the scene of a shooting? Lyft says $5. | Helen Ubiñas
    Kenita Jalivay sat in her car Monday afternoon, reliving the horrifying events that she'd witnessed earlier that day from the driver's seat. She'd barely slept. She was crying. "I guess this is what PTSD looks like," she said, her voice shaking. Jalivay, 42, a Philadelphia writer and aspiring filmmaker from West Philadelphia, drives part-time for Lyft.

Happy Tuesday all! We are looking at a quiet forecast today with temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. If you are headed to the beach, note that there is moderate risk for dangerous rip currents along the Delaware and New Jersey shores. Wave heights from 2-4 feet with longer periods due in part to Tropical Storm Chris off the North Carolina Coast will likely develop stronger rip currents. Know the signs to help spot dangerous rip currents and enjoy a safe day at the beach. To view the forecast for your beach and to learn more visit our beach forecast page: https://www.weather.gov/beach/phi.

However, Chris will cause a significant rip current threat over the next few days in addition to high surf, rough waters, and increased swells.
