7:02 am
dave, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, matt. minnesota governor mark dayton has issued a state of emergency for counties dealing with massive flooding. torrential rain is the blame for the mudslide near the hospital complex. no patients were affected. this is where the 15 to 17 stories of earth gave way under a hospital. several drivers narrow rhode island escaping the slide. causing the rain soaked hills along the mississippi river thursday night to collapse under an administration building at the university of minnesota medical center. fortunately, no patients were in danger. this section of trees and hill were sent into the river. the force left 6 to 8 feet of
7:03 am
mud on the roadway. it comes during a dangerous season where landslides wrecked havoc. this caused a home in whitney, texas to fall into the lake. in april, this video shows cars on charles street in baltimore, maryland disappearing as the landslide works down the street. in march, a mudslide in oso, washington killed more than 40 people. back here in minnesota, as residents clean up after heavy flooding, officials are saying the hospital building is safe. it may take several days for crews to get in and remove all of the debris from the roadway. they are waiting for the ground to stabilize and for the mud to dry out in minneapolis. savannah and matt, back to you. >> dave berggren, thank you very much. another big story we're following this morning. the fbi is working with the center for disease control to
7:04 am
determine how 75 workers at the labs in atlanta were exposed to the dangerous anthrax bacteria. those workers, by the way, are now under close medical observation. a lot of questions about how this happened. nbc's tom costello has the story in washington. good morning. >> reporter: anthrax is best known now as an agent in bio-terrorism. while this appears to have been an accident, it's also the largest known case of exposure. the question, why were safety protocols violated in a high security lab? it happened at the nation's premiere facility that conducts research into deadly diseases and biological agents. the centers for disease control in atlanta says 75 workers at three separate labs may have been exposed to the dangerous anthrax bacteria in a high-level lab. the lab was preparing samples for researchers looking into new ways to detect anthrax. but somehow it failed to make
7:05 am
the bacteria inactive before releasing it to three other labs not equipped to handle anthrax. in a statement the cdc reports workers believing the samples were inactivated were not wearing adequate personal protective equipment while handling the material. at least some of the spores were then spread through the air. >> the proper way to handle anthrax is with enormous care under special laboratory containment facilities with meticulous infection control precautions. >> reporter: the first symptoms for inhaled anthrax could look like flu symptoms. sore throat, that fatigue and muscle aches. so far no one has shown any symptoms, but the exposed employees were put on antibiotics as a precaution. and other cdc staff, family members, and the general public are not at risk of exposure. and do not need to take any protective action.
7:06 am
>> in this incident, a risk really is very low to the exposed people and to the surrounding community. >> reporter: anthrax is deadly serious. >> good morning. anthrax in the nation's capitol -- >> reporter: in 2001, five people died and 22 others sickened after anthrax spores were sent through the mail. the fbi determined a lone government scientist was likely to blame. he later committed suicide. this morning both the cdc and the fbi say they believe this exposure in atlanta was an accident. but they are looking into why the safety protocols of the high-level lab were not followed and they say disciplinary actions could follow. >> tom costello in washington. thanks. now we want to talk about the deteriorating situation in iraq as al qaeda-inspired militants fight for control of key cities and oil facilities. the president is sending more u.s. service members to the region. he says, though, they're only there to advise. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel's in baghdad. richard, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt.
7:07 am
the u.s. is getting more involved militarily in iraq again. the u.s. isn't launching another war here. u.s. troops aren't going to be on patrol. instead, these advisers, some of them already arriving, others on their way, will be working with iraqis in joint command centers including some command centers here in baghdad to try to advise the iraqi troops in their fight against islamic extremists. isis militants are still fighting, trying to take over iraq. the iraqi army, poor leadership, and defection has crumbled. so now at the request of the iraqi government, the u.s. is stepping in deploying up to 300, quote, advisers. >> we're prepared to send a small number of additional military advisers up to 300 to assess how we can best train, advise and support iraqi security forces going forward. >> reporter: make no mistake, this is american military involvement.
7:08 am
but it's by remote control. >> american combat troops are not going to be fighting in iraq again. >> reporter: the americans won't be kicking down doors again. the advisers will guide the iraqi military in the battle against isis helping them pick targets, advising iraqi troops how to maneuver, to re-take the half dozen cities and towns where the militants have settled in. and if iraqi fire power isn't enough, the u.s. military may lend a hand. >> we will be prepared to take targeted and precise military action if and when we determine that the situation on the ground requires it. if we do, we'll consult closely with congress. >> reporter: but the u.s. isn't the only country with its hands on the wheel. iran already has military advisers here reportedly led by qassem suleimani, he's the leader iran's elite qods force. u.s special forces and intelligence generally considered the qods force to be
7:09 am
a hostile enemy and now the u.s. and iran will both be guiding the iraqi army. stange bedfellows brought together by a common cause. >> richard, the term we keep using and the president used yesterday, military advisers. the term you're not hearing used is special forces. is this semantics. is there a reason for that? >> reporter: they'll be special forces and some intelligence. but primarily these are military personnel who are going to be looking for targets. these are hammers looking for nails. they're going to be sitting in the operation centers. they're going to be gathering intelligence. they're going to be on the radios. they'll be calling in air strikes. initially iraqi air strikes. they will generally be trying to help the iraqis use the equipment that they already have. and the iraqi army is very well equipped. the problem is the iraqis have been mismanaging their army. they've had leadership problems. and if the american presence
7:10 am
isn't enough to get the iraqi army back in this fight, then as the president suggested, perhaps the u.s. might have to get more directly involved. >> richard engel in baghdad. thank you very much. natalie's here with breaking news overnight. a terrible shooting at a concert. >> that's right. in one of the country's most iconic music venues. it turned into a crime scene on thursday night. this morning, police are still searching for a gunman who shot three people in the parking lot at red rocks in colorado. officers locked down the venue after a performance by rappers nas, school boy q. and police checked every car leaving the venue making sure the gunman wasn't hiding in the vehicles. the three victims fled the scene after the shooting, but were later found miles away near downtown denver. they were taken to the hospital, but their conditions are unknown. as expected, house republicans elected california congressman kevin mccarthy as majority leader on thursday. mccarthy will take over for eric cantor who stepped down after losing his virginia primary earlier this month. louisiana representative steve scalise was elected to replace mccarthy as whip.

8:35 am
8:36 am
all right. we're back at 8:36. women's fashion trends are always on the front pages, but
8:37 am
what about the men? well, we'll give the men some attention right now. as the weather heats up, a new trend is cropping up. the short suit popularized by pharrell williams. you can truly make it your own by pairing it with some sneakers and whether you loved it or hated it, there's pitbull's rolled up pants at the world cup opening ceremony. how does a regular guy pull off these looks? does a guy even want to? bobby thomas is here. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> are these looks we want our guys to try? >> that's the million-dollar question. most guys are afraid of change. they don't have seasonal wear like women. but these trends are really an opportunity for you to show a bit of your personality. and you have to look at them like punctuation marks. we've got to call willie out to help us. >> we have some male models, guys who hope people focus on their looks. they're here right now. first let's do the pitbull
8:38 am
trend. >> yes. >> and i ask you, can willie pull off this look? willie, you with your capri pants come on down. >> it's a definitive no. >> should they be tighter like pitbulls? >> and higher. hawaii go his go up here, right? >> one of my pet peeves looking at pitbull, white pants are great for guys except that pitbull's frame, he should have opted for a lower rise. willie has a pair of pants on from zara and they are the appropriate rise. >> shouldn't it be tucked in? >> honestly if guys are watching at home, if you're going to roll the bottoms, don't you want a wide leg. this slimmer leg is how you roll. >> i know you were worried about that. your legs look really slim. you don't have cankles.
8:39 am
>> do you have the white belt that goes with that? >> no belt. >> i think it's cool when a guy wears something that's traditionally more feminine. >> willie, you look great. we need you to stay here. now, our next trend is the short suit. and matt has -- he's been asking me a lot, do you think i could pull this off. >> can we talk about this? you see the length pants he has on? bobby, why did you give me this length? huh? what's up with this? shouldn't it be down here? then you'd have gauchos, but you also have longer legs. all of a sudden i feel a whole lot better. >> first of all, i'm going to call you out because you were excited when you told me yesterday that pharrell came up to you at a party in the hamptons. >> i saw him and he was wearing a sport jacket with shorts and i thought he looked great.
8:40 am
>> you said he looked fly. >> i don't think i used the word "fly." i looked at myself, i don't think i look quite as great. >> i actually think this is definitely a statement. it's all about the fabric. you want a more casual fabric, and you have to be willing to show some leg. and i have to say the shoes, a casual shoe, these are a little dressier but something like this, very -- >> savannah, for you. there you go. she wanted the real short look. >> she's will help you. they're also -- add some flavor. i just want you to say that time you spent at the tanning booth was not wasted time. good job. good job. last but not least, let's introduce the trend. the sneaker suit. >> wait, wait. >> he's cheating. >> no, not that one. the next one. you wear the suit and wear sneakers. lots of celebrities. justin timberlake and men well above the age of 25. >> i've been doing this for years. >> yeah. this is a way to make a suit less serious. i think this is the easiest
8:41 am
trend for guys to pull off. these are kicks from bloomingdale's, under $100. you can find leather sneakers and really great rubber soles. matt, stop laughing. you're wearing j crew. >> how much do you have to pay him to do nothing except change his shoes? >> i don't know. you guys. how do you feel? >> i thought i got the short end of the stick. >> no pun intended. >> thank you. >> i'm the new guy. how you doing? thanks. >> oh, my gosh. >> when are they going to start making them for men? >> we're going to wrap up but i think we'll spend a few more seconds just looking at you guys. have you guys ever done the catwalk? can you show us your walk? >> zoolander. >> thanks. >> all right, let's go. >> i'll stay here with bobbie. >> let's just complete this humiliation right here. >> yeah. >> very nice. >> wow, very good. go. >> willie, you're trending. no, i'm done. i'm done. i'm here with bobbie. i'm fine.
8:42 am
thanks, bobbie. >> thank you, models. you did a great job. >> thank you. >> great job. coming up next, fall out boy live in concert. matt's going to wear this the rest of the show. but first this is "today" on nbc. >> i don't have time to change.

9:03 am
surgeries. he was in the hospital like two and a half years. yesterday president obama had well deserved words of the praise for the retired marine and got a few laughs as well. >> kyle you not only saved your brother in arms, you displayed heroism in the blink of an eye. kyle doesn't hide his scars. he's proud of them and the service they represent. and he tells me this, and i'm just quoting him. he says the girls definitely like them. so he's working an angle on this thing. i wasn't sure if i was supposed to say that in front of mom. >> corporal carpenter's twitter handle is chicks dig scars. it's one thing he did in service. listen what he's done since the
9:04 am
injury. he's run a marathon, went sky diving, completed a tough mudder competition and now a full time student at the university of south carolina. >> he jumped on a grenade to save a fellow soldier that's still recovering. >> amazing. bravery. absolutely amazing. nothing says community like get off my lawn. that's my favorite thing to say. it's crazy. a kansas family thought they'd do the right thing by doing a community project based on books. so the grandfather of a beautiful little boy decided to put a bookshelf together. that bookshelf for that cutie on the front lawn. their idea was take a book, leave a book on a park bench. people can sit down and borrow a book. isn't that a cute idea? that's what we talk about not knowing neighbors. they decided to get to know neighbors. look how cute with his smile and cut off shorts here's the
9:05 am
problem. the city code where they live threatened the family with a daily fine of $25 because two people complained. now they say they empathize with the family and think it's a good idea. but two people -- let us know who you are -- complained because of the code. they say it's detached structure and that's not allowed within the city guidelines. the family has got to take it down. here we are. >> the kid is out there encouraging the love of reading. >> and bringing neighbors together. >> yeah. >> well obviously not all neighbors. the good thing spencer we believe is going to try to persuade the city council or board at a meeting coming up next week i believe. perhaps he can teach them community is sharing and a book is a good thing. >> i think we should go. >> he has it in his garage in the meantime.
9:06 am
look how cute he is. take a book, leave a book. it's tastefully done, adorable. books aren't going to get wet. there's a roof over it. it doesn't litter the community. >> do the right thing city council. >> it's their lawn, private property. this is terrible. >> i don't understand how they can -- >> some city ordinances have it where you can only have certain sheds and structures. >> i would like to read the complaints from the two people. two children encouraging raiding and community on the lawn. >> the other one is the guy who lived with mr. wilson. >> dennis the menace. there you go with that. >> that idea about read and sharing. >> let's fix this. easy. here's an interesting concept. tell us what you think about
9:07 am
this. willie you fast returned your pants. have you bought a piece of clothing with intention to wear it once to give it a test drive and perhaps you didn't like it and return it right away? >> you buy it then take it back. >> if it doesn't look good when i get home. >> that's different than wearing it. jeans are the hardest thing to buy outside a swimsuit. buy it in the store and take it home and you don't wear it on the town and say i broke it in. >> there's a japanese company that's now allowing -- it's part of their policy. you try before you buy. you can wear it, take up to three pieces of clothing. wear it for the day if you want. then bring it back before closing time. it hopes with the idea of this it will persuade shoppers from returning the items much long after they're purchased. i guess the question is this an idea that could catch on here?
9:08 am
who knows? a lot of people maybe do that any way. my concern is that clothes getting returned after being worn all day, sweaty pits and all -- >> do they steam it or anything? >> color fades and -- >> you can't see sweat. >> they don't wash it. >> i don't want to see that with the tag back on it then. >> are you both telling me -- maybe you haven't done it -- you don't know a woman that bought a dress and worn it to an event and returned it monday. >> i do know people that have done that. >> i was sitting behind a woman and i could see the tag. i was like -- >> tuck that back in. >> did you tell pher? >> no. i was embarrassed. i worked at a lingerie. we would see women try it on without undergarments.
9:09 am
it's like you have to buy that. >> let's move on. al roker was on with seth last night. y'all talked about the emphasis morning you slept in. >> something happened to you that never happened before in all years doing this. you overslept? >> i overslept. my alarm went off. i hit snooze. i never got up again. i shouldn't say never got up. this would be the afterlife. it looks great. >> i never got up again. >> is this the pearly gate? >> i'm dead. >> did you return the suit you wore? >> this is my suit. >> the tag coming out of that? >> it's got my name in it in case i forget. >> that looks amazing. >> first of all staff is terrific, he's terrific. the show is a lot of fun. >> she's doing a great job.
9:10 am

you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. switching to xarelto® was the right move for mary. ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. no regular blood monitoring; no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options download the xarelto® patient center app, call 1-888-xarelto, or visit goxarelto.com
