7:02 am
>> meanwhile mother's day was tough for a lot of people in the country. it's our top story this morning. that severe weather impacting tens of millions of people. tornadoes and flash flooding in the south and the midwest. the carolinas getting soaked by the remnants of ana. in colorado nearly two feet of snow. we've got it all covered starting with nbc's kerry sanders who is in texas. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. a tremendous amount of damage not only from tornadoes, but there's been a lot of rain. the ground here is saturated. you can see here that saturated rain in the ground along with flash floods have set off problems with things like this sinkhole. but the most damage coming from tornadoes. >> tornado just hit our town! >> reporter: more than two dozen people were injured and some homes were fully destroyed after
7:03 am
a severe storm struck the small town of van in northeast texas. >> this is something you only see in movies. seeing where the homes once stood and they're not there anymore. >> reporter: and there was a huge twisting in iowa where it ripped off the roof of the building. inside for a banquet, 125 people hunkered down. remarkably, no one was seriously injured. these weather systems from south dakota to texas creating chaos also packed drenching rain. in krum, texas, up to 4 inches of rain in an hour led to flash floods. >> it went all of a sudden. there was nothing you could do if you saw it coming. >> reporter: the national guard rescued a half dozen residents trapped by the flood waters. >> i knew i was scared but i knew she was going to be okay. >> reporter: this 76-year-old was standing on the bed with the rising waters already soaking her feet when a national guardsman came through her
7:04 am
window. >> i'm dressed in hospital garb. >> reporter: because everything's gone? >> everything's gone. >> reporter: how powerful were those flash floods? that woman said as the waters came and she was being hoisted up to a helicopter, it swept through her front yard, took her car. they found her car washed down the street more than a mile away. >> all right. kerry sanders in texas for us, thank you very much. >> and al, who's going to get it today? >> it's a much wider swath. we're talking almost 60 million people being affected by severe weather today. we've got it going on right now. in fact, as you look down in southern texas where you've got a flood watch and severe thunderstorm watch in effect, we've got severe thunderstorm warnings also just to the east of del rio, texas. this is all part of a line that's going to stretch from chicago all the way back into texas. stronger storms fire up later this afternoon. the upper midwest on into western pennsylvania.
7:05 am
so we have a risk today stretching from western pa, southern michigan, all the way down into texas. 57 million people at risk. greatest chance for tornadoes will be in southeastern michigan, indiana, and ohio. so the northern part of this line later on this afternoon. and we also have flood watches and flash flood watches and warnings from arkansas into texas. why? look at this. we're looking in the next three days about 3 to 4 inches. but by the weekend we're talking anywhere from 5 to 7 inches of rain in central and southern texas. their drought has been taken care of pretty well but at a real cost. >> we'll keep an eye on all of that. thank you very much. we're also keeping an eye on ana. the remnants of the first named storm of the season dumping rains on parts of north carolina and virginia. "today's" dylan dreyer is in virginia beach. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. yeah, the remnants of tropical storm ana has made their way to virginia beach.
7:06 am
this is now the earliest tropical storm to hit this far north on the atlantic coast before hurricane season even starts on june 1st. it made landfall in myrtle beach, south carolina, where it produced nearly 6 inches of rain. we also saw peak wind gusts at 50 to 60 miles per hour. the coast of north carolina picked up 2 to 4 inches of rain. beach erosion was the biggest concern because of the rough surf. now, here today we are looking at those torrential tropical downpours that could lead to some brief urban flooding. but the biggest concern here will be for the rip currents in the ocean. tomorrow it's going to be about 90 degrees here. with folks at the beach, they really need to keep that in mind. and i want to point out a preseason storm this early is no indication that it's going to be a bad hurricane season, but of course we'll see how that all plays out. >> dylan, thank you.
7:07 am
meantime, we'll go to mississippi. it was an emotional scene in the town of hattiesburg last night at a vigil for two police officers who were gunned down during a weekend traffic stop. they are the first officers killed in the line of duty in that town in three decades. gabe gutierrez has the latest in this story. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. a fourth arrest has now been made in this case. all four suspects are due in court later today. the death of these police officers has shocked this close knit community. overnight in hattiesburg, a candlelight vigil. the city mourning the deaths of 34-year-old benjamin deen. and liquori tate, a 25-year-old rack rookie of the police academy. >> they took away my baby. >> reporter: on mother's day yolana ross had this message for the killer. >> the hurt is unbearable.
7:08 am
>> reporter: his family says tate wanted to be a police officer since he was 4. >> he was a hero. he backed up his partner. >> reporter: police say officer deen stopped the vehicle. when officer tate came to back up, both were hit. following a manhunt -- >> did you do it? >> reporter: police arrested curtis banks and charged him with being an accessory. a fourth suspect cornelius clark was later charged with obstruction of justice. the shooting comes as police around the country are on edge. thousands mourning a naulen nypd officer on friday. the number of officers ambushed and killed last year was three times higher than the year before. but hattiesburg's mayor does not think deen and tate were targeted. >> i think we had police
7:09 am
officers in the wrong place at the wrong time. someone who didn't want to go to jail, would rather shoot his way out. >> reporter: these are the first officers killed in the line of duty in this town in more than 30 years. a memorial service is planned for later today. >> the suspects due in court as well. thank you very much. u.s. military bases beginning a first full week on a heightened state of alert today. that's in response to the concerns about isis using social media to prompt attacks here at home. nbc justice correspondent pete williams has more on that. hi, pete. >> reporter: hey, matt. good morni the fbi and homeland security are urging police around the country to be extra vigilant. and they say it's important for people to speak up if they know someone that could be inspired by social media to become violent. the plot to attack in texas and the fbi says it was inspired by social media messages from isis have added another dimension
7:10 am
about attacks by home-grown extremists. >> we're very definitely in a new phase in the global terrorist threat where the so-called lone wolf could strike at any moment. >> reporter: the fbi director says hundreds of people in the u.s. are communicating with isis sympathizers on social media. as was elton simpson who attacked at the texas event. because it's not possible to put every potential suspect under surveillance, officials say public help is essential. >> this is a new phenomenon for parents where the social media may be reaching your kids in the basement of the home without your knowledge. reach out, spot what's going on. when you see it, act. >> reporter: justice department officials insist that public help is important.
7:11 am
they say it helped identify 80% of the people who've been convicted of plotting to help isis further its terrorist goals. matt? >> all right. pete williams for us on this story. pete, thanks very much. it's a key week for the boston bombing trial. >> it is. the jury in the trial of dzhokhar tsarnaev is expected to begin weighing his punishment this week. jurors must decide whether 21-year-old tsarnaev should spend the rest of his life in prison or be put to death for the 2013 bombings. his lawyers are expected to call their last witness in the sentencing phase today. former president jimmy carter cut short an election monitoring trip to guiana due to health reasons. he returned to atlanta on sunday. the carter center didn't disclose specifics only saying that he was not feeling well. staffers will remain, though, in guiana to observe today's vote. two people were killed and nearly 4,000 others forced to evacuate as a typhoon slammed into the philippines. pounding rains lashed trees and flattened houses there. the typhoon weakened after it

7:31 am
stop on saturday night. a vigil planned for those officers this afternoon. and the defense is expected to call its last witness today in the penalty phase of the boston marathon bombing trial. dzhokhar tsarnaev who was convicted of all 30 charges in the attack is facing a death sentence or life in prison. but let us begin this half hour with the big question facing nfl commissioner roger goodell. what punishment might tom brady face in deflategate? craig melvin has the latest on that. >> reporter: good morning, guys. many observers at this point believe his suspension is not a matter of if but when. this morning league officials are responding to reports that a punishment for the nfl's biggest star is imminent 37. this morning has the nfl decided tom brady's fate? faculty multiple news reports indicate the nfl will suspend brady this
7:32 am
week. writing the only question now is how many games with which goodell will hit the league's star player. but an nfl spokesperson tells nbc news no decisions have been made. no timetable. goodell has vowed they will protect the integrity of the game as brady refused to turn over his home or any e-mails. >> i believe tom brady is going to be suspended. the question is how many games. we routinely see players suspended for smoking marijuana for getting in trouble off the field. as reprehensible as some of the off the field incidents are, they have no relation to the integrity of the game. >> reporter: included baltimore ravens star ray rice who was suspended with video surfaced of rice knocking out his then-fiance in an elevator. he was later cut. and adrian peterson.
7:33 am
he was suspended last season after pleading. and cleveland browns receiver josh gordon suspended for a year after repeatedly violating the substance abuse policy. as brady awaits word peyton manning stopped short of defending his rival. >> he's my friend. he'll always be my friend. i don't know what happened. i don't have much more than that for you. >> reporter: brady has denied any involvement in deflategate despite the report by ted wells finding, quote, it was more probable than not that brady was at least generally aware. brady's agent calls that report a disappointment accusing investigators of leaving out key portions of brady's testimony. matt? >> all right. thank you very much. nancy armor is a columnist for usa today. she's been all over deflategate. >> good morning. >> roger goodell says he will do what it takes to protect the integrity of the game. it goes to the integrity of the
7:34 am
game. is goodell in a box? >> he is. and you hit it on the head. this is -- you know we're talking about deflating footballs. it's not -- in the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal. but if you are tampering with footballs, you are tampering with the integrity of the game nap is something that will not be acceptable. >> let me read you some factors. kind of a laundry list. you tell me how you think these factors should impact the penalty that tom brady faces. tom bray is one the most high-profile most glamorous players in the nfl. >> if you don't punish him, what does that send to others? if you want to prevent others from doing this what better way than to make an example of him. >> tom brady refused to turn over text messages to investigators looking into deflategate. >> and that could be seen as conduct detrimental to the league. >> and that brady was quote, at least generally aware, end
7:35 am
quote, of what was going on with those balls. that sounds wishy washy to most people. >> it does but that is the burden of proof for the nfl. that's their way of saying yes he did it. >> roger goodell and bob kraft the owner of the patriots are very close friends. how might that impact the punishment? >> i think that actually hurts the patriots more than anything. because goodell can't be seen as showing favoritism to any team particularly one that he's close to their owner. >> you're on the clock. what's the penalty? who should be handed down? >> i think it'll be a game or two games. i think it will end up being two games again just because they have to sent a message. >> two games is the same penalty that roger goodell initially handed down to ray rice after that brutal punch to his wife in that elevator. now, one was an assault and the other is a technical rules violation. but what impact does one have on the other? >> i think, yeah there will be a lot of people who will say
7:36 am
it's the same punishment as ray rice. but as awful as it was and we've all talked about that that didn't have a direct correlation to the game. this does. and as you said roger goodell is all about protecting the shield and that's what he's going to have to do in this case. >> no matter what penalty is handed down tom brady will likely appeal it through the players association. >> yes. >> which raises the question does the wells report stand up to the scrutiny it will face? >> i think so. if you just look at it with the smell test it doesn't look good. and yes, you can say there's some questions about the methodology but at the end of the day, common sense. >> nancy, thanks very much. >> thank you. >> we're going to get a check of the weather now from al. >> announcer: "today's" weather is brought to you by soma. your new bra destination. >> so the front that's bringing big changes as far as severe
7:37 am
thunderstorms and possibility of tornadoes bringing big changes temperaturewise. eastern half of the country, 5 to 15 degrees above average. record-setting temperatures near washington cleveland. behind it though temperatures 5 to 10 degrees below average. tomorrow those temperatures continue to drop. buffalo will see about a 20 degree drop. same in detroit. d.c. though 91. 88 in new york city. 92 raleigh. then the front pushes all the way through. temperatures about 25 degrees colder wednesday than tuesday. in new york city albany boston washington, d.c. detroit. but the good news is it's short lived because temperatures then bounce back up again that's what's going on around the country. 7:37. good morning to you. we are going to see that cool ocean breeze for today. it's going to intensify as we head throughout the day today. probably a good idea to keep that jacket with you for most of the day. cool tvps. these are your highs today. 62 degrees on the peninsula. 63 for the east shore. 65 degrees on the way to the

martin sheen and sam waterston. >> first let's get a check of the weather. >> that's right. when you look at today, we've got a strong risk of storms from texas to pa. almost 60 million people will be impacted by this. sunshine a little cooler in los angeles. 74 degrees. sunny and warm down through the gulf coast. and we're looking at the remnants of ana causing some showers along the southeastern mid-atlantic coast. risk of storms in southern texas tomorrow. 8 to 12 inches of rain over the next seven days. and showers along the central great that's what's going on around the country. he 8:32. good monday morning. i'm meteorologist christina loren. cool ocean breeze today, the weather story of the day. temperatures on the cool side as well. 62 on the peninsula. 66 in the tri-valley. around 73 degrees. the only place even reaching
8:33 am
room temperature is going to be out in the north bay. temp stay steady all week. we get showers thursday and friday. widespread we're also expecting activity in the east bay valleys. mid 60s for much of the week. >> and that's your latest weather. savannah? >> all right, al. thank you so much. we are taking a closer look this morning at what's being called a shocking new study by nyu medical center. it was published in the journal childhood obesity. here's what it found. when parents were asked if their preschooler were too thin too heavy, or just about the right weight nearly all of the parents of overweight kids said their kid was just right. experts are now calling this the goldilocks syndrome. dr. natalie azar is a contributor. what parent would call their own child fat or obese? maybe they don't want to use
8:34 am
those words. >> that's exactly right. that was one explanation for it. the issue why is it so important? it's because parents have the idea kids will outgrow obesity and maybe that's why they're more reluctant to acknowledge it. we know more importantly that these habits that children learn start very young. so in the preschool age is when these healthy behaviors are going to start taking form. that's why this time period is so essentially important. >> one of the things the study found is when parents were assessing where their child fit in on this weight scale, they often were comparing to other children. they thought my kid looks like the other kids so that's why my kid is just right. >> exactly. and it has a name. it's called the social comparison theory. they invoke that as to one reason why this happens. rather than parents looking at growth charts saying my child is in the obese range. they say he or she looks the same as the kids in their school so therefore they must be doing okay. >> so what are parents supposed
8:35 am
to do? as a parent myself the last thing i want to do is put my child on a diet and give my child all those hangups for the rest of her life. >> well one important thing to come out of this study is really that it's communication with the pediatricians that's so important. it's a little bit -- not so much on indictment on the medical community, but clearly there's been a lack of communication between the doctors and the parents together to form sort of a uniform task force, if you will. because parents need to feel empowered. and they have to say, listen i can't ignore the facts anymore. it appears my child is in this range. we have to start intervening early because as we said before these behaviors are set very early in life. >> it's a matter of encouraging healthy eating. >> and they model and the parents are the most important factor in what behaviors a child will eventually have. >> always a good reminder. thank you so much. >> thanks. coming up next music

storms yesterday died. and not only do we have this severe weather which we have again today which we'll detail in a little bit, but we also had winter weather back through the rockies. so this is colorado rockies coors field. check this out. we're going to show you this. blanketed in about 4 inches of snow before the game with the l.a. dodgers. okay? >> baseball? >> baseball. >> in the snow? >> in the snow. they put the tarp down but then they had to shovel off the tarp. they should have left it on there because they ended up losing 9-5. the rockies did. but what are you going to do? >> that's a lot of ground to cover too. >> they had grounds crews shoveling as well. here's an amazing picture. this is in colorado. tornado touches down then you see a rainbow. i mean, it almost looks like this was doctored. but it is not. >> over the farmland there. beautiful. >> so we had a lot of wild weather. and we had earliest northern
9:06 am
most tropical storm make landfall on saturday with tropical storm ana. which is still churning off the north carolina coast. so we had unbelievable weather all weekend long. >> springtime. >> yeah. and record-setting heat yesterday and probably again today in the northeast and the atlantic coast. >> 87 degrees. wasn't it amazing? >> was it 87? >> boston got up to 89. >> really? >> yeah. >> it's been nuts. >> we kind of skipped spring. >> we did. in fact, we're actually -- we're taking a corner of the kardashian bureau for the weather center. we'll talk about all this. >> all right. well here's a question. this was in a "new york times" op-ed. it's about mom and moms being the designated worrying. the article says that women tend to worry more about their children. they say we're biologically hard wired to worry more about our children. and studies confirm mothers tend
9:07 am
to draft all the to do lists. we do more of the hr when it comes to taking care of the household and the home to help manage the kids and make sure they're lined up for all the things they're supposed to be doing. not to say obviously that there aren't dads who don't contribute equally. and as the author says in the article, you can't make sweeping generalizations here. >> no. >> however, the point is, she says, that women tend to have the -- are hard wired more to worry about their kids. what do you guys think? >> i think debra and i switch off on the scheduling and things like that. we kind of try to pick up the slack with each other. but when it comes to, i think, the worrying about safety. yesterday nick wanted to walk to church for the first time by himself. and debra didn't want him to do it. i said got to let him do it. it's not that far. i said here's what we'll do. i told him what route to take. and i gave him about a five minute head start and then i followed him on my bike back
9:08 am
about two blocks. and let debra know. okay, little roker is by the church now. little roke is in the big house. but he was fine. >> did you ever reveal to him you were tailing him? >> no. >> that's good. >> good thing you didn't say it on national tv. he'll never hear about it. >> he'll never know. >> i think in my house joe and i equally divide the labor i think, when it comes to scheduling and doing a lot of the soccer duty. maybe joe does more of that and i do more of the household stuff. but we are pretty much down the line helping each other out. but i think overall when it comes to worrying about the bigger picture, are they doing too much, are they overscheduled? is it too much soccer, too much stress? i think i'm that one. >> i think we try to do it pretty equally but christina gets the credit. in terms of signing people up for karate and getting them
9:09 am
there. by virtue of her being there more than i am she does more. i'd like to do more. but i think we have a balanced relationship. >> i think part of it is women tend to kind of take that on and if we don't do it quite the way you like us to do it, then you just kind of swoop in. give me that. >> i read a parenting book and it talked about changing the child's diaper nap if your husband changes the diaper wrong, let it hang off. if you go in and fix the diaper, you're instilling in him he can't do anything right. so if you get the scheduling wrong, christina just has to say okay he's off a bit. i have to let it go. otherwise you'll check out and she will eventually adopt the role of being the worrier and the hr person. >> it's true. you can't complain. if they're going to pitch in and help you out, if you don't --
9:10 am
>> sometimes in the makeup room before natalie says i can't believe joe sent them out wearing this. so what? >> it's true. >> but you can't tell him. >> right. but i complain to you guys. >> again, joe will never hear about this. >> it's not on national television. >> a friend will call him saying this. >> no, not at all. >> we talk amongst each other. you don't tell anyone else, right? >> if the shoes don't match, that they're wearing a winter coat in the summer. >> like rosanne said when she did standup, she said at the end of the day if the kids are in bed and there's no internal bleeding i've done my job. >> she is not a worrying. >> she's on to something. all right. one last thing to show you before we get to weather here also to do with parenting. yesterday's mets/phillies game. daniel murphy of the mets hit a
9:11 am
foul ball into the stands. watch the fan. he's got the baby on and makes the one-handed grab. there's the baby right there. >> celebrating. >> and then he celebrates. >> his wife is yelling at the tv. >> is it not incredible? >> she's sitting next to him. >> look at the baby. the baby never loses its pacifier or flinches. it's like i know this dude, i'm good. >> that's a pretty chill family. >> the baybyaby's like he knows what he's doing. >> that was mike capko. it's his son's first game. >> famous for his first baseball game. >> kolton capko. i like that. >> how about a look at the weather, sir? >> all right. i'm changing my name is kolton. i like it. we have severe thunderstorm
9:12 am
watches down through texas. but what we're watching is this line down from chicago into houston. there's some severe weather along this. in fact, almost 60 million people are at risk for severe weather today. especially as you get north into indiana, michigan, ohio parts of southern michigan late this afternoon into this evening. greatest risk for tornadoes large hail, damaging winds. we're going to watch this. also the southern part of this, these are slow-moving storms. look at the rainfall in three days about 3 inches. but then it's going to keep raining next five days. some areas picking up 5 to 7 inches of rain in southern texas. okay. drought not so much anymore, but happy monday to you. temperatures today are going to be comfortable locker you'll probably need a jacket or sweater for most of the day with the cooling ocean breeze. it will feel cooler than the true temperature. 66 is the high in the south bay.
9:13 am

i don't know what it is that i am doing but it's not flying. >> ethan hawke and andrew niccol. good morning. great to have you here. third collaboration together. >> we're not doing it again. >> clearly a team that works well together. but this tackles a weighty subject. when you're talking about drones and warfare. why did you want to take this on? >> well when andrew sent me the script i realized i had been hearing about drone strikes for a decade without any mental picture of what it means. i think if we hear about certain kinds of warfare, we have some context and vocabulary for what it is the newspapers and government are talking about. but i had no idea what a drone strike really was. and so i was fascinated because this is something that's happening to this generation of soldiers that they're being asked to do. and it's completely new. >> it's fascinating, too andrew, because i think a lot of people look at america's foreign
9:18 am
policy and say there are fewer boots on the ground so that's better. but we're still killing people from the skies and there are american people who are doing it. and as ethan's character shows, that torments them. >> right. i was drawn to this new schizophrenia of this new warfare where ethan's character will you know, for 12 hours a day he'll fight the taliban with a remote control. and then he'll go home to his wife and kids. what does that do to the psyche of a soldier? >> and what role they have with the rest of the military. one drone pilot was awarded the medal of honor but it was rescinded because of the outcry in the middle east. they're making mortal decision bus they're not in harm's way themselves. and it creates an interesting feeling in the pilots and the rest of the community. >> how do you research a role like that? did you get to know drone pilots and see what they've been through? >> well, just a lot of literature about it and andrew's script is meticulously well written.
9:19 am
he brought in former drone pilots to walk us through how to work it and they were there every day that we were shooting. so that was pretty interesting. the truth is when i first read it, the idea the pilots are stationed outside of las vegas, it seemed like a science fiction story to me. until i found out it was real. it was fascinating. >> and andrew, i know that you two joke that you seem to call him up whenever he needs a hair cut and some grooming. >> i know. >> yeah. >> it's true. he's been an astronaut for me, interpol agent, now a fighter pilot. but this is how he really looks. >> like a bum. my wife thinks i should keep it too. >> ethan hawke, andrew niccol, thank you for being here. >> good luck with the movie. coming up next, if you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? we will reveal our choices and
