As for the driver of the vehicle, they did remain on the scene. Good news for those in Germantown who have gone without water since last night. Water says service is being restored to about 200 customers, but the agency warns your water might look a little strange at first. Don't worry about it. The discolored water is safe to drink, but wssc recommends not using it to do laundry to get rid of the discolored water. You can run all cold water taps for about 5 minutes or until the water runs clear. The water service problem was because of two water main breaks that happened around 6 o'clock last night.

Montgomery county health officials have requested 1000 of those vaccines to start with county executive Mark elrich. I hope that this is a game changer and will help us increase our booster rates for county with nearly 90% fully vaccinated. I'm frustrated that we remain a below 60% in our base to rates. Those numbers need to come up.

Chief meteorologist on camera right now is 67 and oxen hill. 60 in Sterling and 67 in Washington at three 40. The Biden administration has laid out plans to protect women's access to abortion services. This is a critical moment in our history. Health and Human Services secretary Javier becerra says his department has been planning for the high court's decision to strike down roe versus wade for some time. Tuesday, he unveiled the Biden administration's action plan, which includes increasing access to abortion medication, ensuring privacy for patients and providers, and directing Medicare and Medicaid to protect family planning services, including emergency and long acting contraceptives. That CBS News is Skylar Henry reporting. In an interview with CBS News, First Lady Jill Biden called the Supreme Court decision on abortion, devastating, and she urged supporters of abortion rights to make their voices heard in the midterm elections. Meanwhile, a group of Virginia Republicans is considering legislation that would limit abortion in the Commonwealth. We think that the 15 weeks is a very good place to start. Virginia state senator Stephen Newman is one of four Republicans called together by the governor to work on a bill that would ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, Newman tells WTO P it won't be easy, Republicans control the house, but Democrats control the Senate. We will need to get the conservatives and also some moderates and some of the more conservative Democrats to get this done. He says under the bill, law enforcement wouldn't go after pregnant mothers, though doctors who perform abortions after the cutoff could have their license pulled. Nick I Nelly WTO P news. The Alexandria city council has unanimously approved a resolution to protect abortion access. The 5 step resolution is a response to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn roe V wade. It calls on the city manager to consider future budget proposals that would ensure low income residents have access to safe abortion services. Council member Aaliyah gaskins says the council has to be ready to support residents who are seeking an abortion. We must not only be relentless and protecting the health and well-being of our people and the citizens we serve, especially women. We also have to be relentless in making sure that we are providing the other supports they need, including meaningful income and essential supports. The resolution also calls on the Virginia General Assembly in Congress to take actions that would protect abortion access in the state. The man who shot and wounded president Ronald Reagan in 1981 is apologizing. John hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and after decades of treatment, he was freed from all court oversight two weeks ago. Now hinckley has given his first TV interview. John hinckley told CBS mornings he doesn't remember the emotions he was feeling when he shot president Reagan and wounded three others. Because you don't want to remember it. Maybe it's your right or something that I don't want to remember. Think Lee says he's felt remorse for years. I shot four people and I'm sorry to the Reagan family, the Brady family. The other families of the victims started Jodie Foster for bringing her into this. Acknowledges the country was traumatized. You are. Oh, yes. Very much so. He does believe his being free now is justice. I was not just a cool calculating criminal in 1981. I truly believe I had a serious mental illness. There was preventing me from knowing right from wrong back then. The law can stain. Straight ahead here on WTO, the Nats put away the pirates again. It's three 44. COVID-19 moves fast, and now you can too. If you feel symptoms even if they're mild, you should test fast, test positive and at high risk for severe COVID-19, then act fast with authorized oral treatments that can be taken
