7:02 am
the water rising so fast there drivers simply got out and abandoned at least 2500 cars. >> let's get to nbc's janet samlian. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. no relief. we're under a flash flood warning with lightning, thunder and rain falling. it comes as the flood waters are receding leaving a muddy mess and showing families the extent of their losses. even in a region used to flooding, this is unprecedented. streets turn to lakes. freeways into parking lots full of abandoned cars and trucks. america's fourth largest city brought to a soggy standstill. >> you see the homes, the lives and dreams of houstonians crushed by the power of the water. >> reporter: almost a foot of rain fell in sus six hours tuesday, leaving at least five dead in houston. this morning thousands are still assessing the damage.
7:03 am
>> lost both cars, we lost all of our flooring, all of our walls. >> reporter: further north devastation. two dead and 13 missing in a small town of wimberley, where the blanco river burst its banks late sunday, sweeping away everything in its path. laura mccomb and her children, 6-year-old andrew and 4-year-old lateen, had traveled from corpus christi for the memorial day weekend. as the house they were staying in was ripped from its foundation, laura called her sister julie. >> the house we were in, the roof collapsed, and we are now floating down the river. call mom and dad, i love you, and pray. >> reporter: all three are now missing. in devine, texas, mourners gathered at a prayer service for alyssa ramirez, a high school homecoming queen killed driving home from her prom. now even in some areas dry out, officials caution the danger is not over.
7:04 am
>> we're going to continue to have rising waters. if your local elected officials tell you to evacuate it is essential that you heed those warnings. >> reporter: houston trying to pick up the pieces today, but with weather like this, that is proving to be a challenge. savannah, back to you. >> thank you very much. let's bring in michael walter, the public information officer for emergency management. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> these images we're seeing are alarming, the governor toured the area and said you cannot candy coat it. what's the state of the city right now? >> right now we still have a lot of our neighborhoods under water. the systems of bayous are doing a good job draining but at a certain point you have this amount of rain in such a short amount of time, it's going to take us a while to fully drain the city. once we start seeing the water
7:05 am
levels recede, that's when really a lot of the hard work is going to start. >> let me talk about numbers. 19 confirmed dead. we have 14 listed missing. 11 in hayes county. three in houston. are those the latest and what's being done to locate those people? >> yeah, so those are the latest numbers right now for the city of houston we still have a few folks that are unaccounted for. we have had five weather associated fatalities here in the city of houston. you know, we are working our search and rescue teams are out there, at the last known place. unfortunately, with -- when people fall into the water it's very difficult for us to know exactly where they went at that point. >> you talk about moving through the cities, the streets of houston. at the height of the flooding people abandoned something like 2,500 cars on major roadways and secondary roadways. that makes it very difficult to move around.
7:06 am
and it also raises the question, michael, was enough done in terms of warning people and telling them to stay off the roads? >> you know, one of the things we run into every time we have any kind of severe weather here is keeping people off the roads. houston is the bayou city for a reason. we are a system of bayous and the area drains here through the houston area to get into the gulf of mexico. so, whenever we have rain, we run into this situation. you know, ahead of the storm, the city was talking with the local media, we were pushing out emergency alerts through the emergency notification system. we were on social media and our main message was turn around don't drown. stay out of these roadways. you know, and unfortunately, some people -- fortunately some did heed that, and then others did not and unfortunately some of those folks you know, ended up losing their lives as a result of that. so you know, when you hear an emergency manager tell you that condition is unsafe, we don't take that lightly.
7:07 am
that's the type of information we were pushing out ahead of this storm and then as we were responding to the immediate aftermath. >> i know there is more rain in the forecast. we hope people heed those warnings. thanks for joining us this morning. i know you have a busy day ahead. >> thank you. let's turn to al for the forecast. looking at the same map for days and days, this pattern is relentless. >> it's going to last into the weekend, unfortunately. let's show you what we've got. to show you that right now there is more rain as janet talked about, we have a flash flood warning in effect for houston. look at this line, this wall of water that is heading toward houston. and will be there in the next 10 to 15 minutes as we track this. again, with the risk of severe weather today, stretching from waco all the way to garden city, 8 million at risk, 2 inch hail, isolated tornados. at one point the blanco river over the weekend was going at
7:08 am
233 cubic feet per second. that's 144 million gallons per day. how much rain is that? well, if you were to put it in olympic pool, it would fill up 218 olympic size swimming pools. the city of houston, the last 24 hour, got 6 inches of rain, 11 inches of rain in 6 hours, and that led to 500 water rescues. there is more rain coming. if there is any silver lining in this, it is the elimination of drought. look at what we had for texas and oklahoma on april 7. by yesterday, last week, you can see it is almost all gone. we'll get another update on this coming up later on tomorrow with the drought, we expect to see no drought in texas. the bad news is we cannot turn off the spigot. >> thank you very much. another major story breaking this morning. fifa international, soccer's governing body in a corruption scandal involving tournaments in
7:09 am

write this onto a blank new one. >> reporter: you're stealing the data from this one and putting it right onto a blank card? >> that's right. so i no longer need that. >> reporter: it doesn't have to be a blank hotel key card. even better, a used credit card that doesn't arouse suspicions. and it's big business. once thieves have copied the card, they can use this to buy merchandise or they can sell it to websites that deal in stolen cards. police in romania recently broke up an international criminal gang who'd been dealing in cloned cards targeting u.s. banks and netting more than $15 million. and americans are more at risk because many of us don't have credit cards found in europe that use an encrypted chip and require a pin code. in the states we're not using the chip and pin technology yet, but that's the next step. >> right, that's correct. >> reporter: but, of course thieves don't actually have to touch your credit card to steal from you. they just need you to give card details over the internet.
7:45 am
looks legit. i've typed in my information. >> reporter: and as soon as you've typed that in on the screen here, i can see the little security code capture response and i can see your credit card data. so now i'm in possession of that. >> you've got this now. >> yeah absolutely. in realtime. >> reporter: and don't put too much luck in that padlock. that only means your information is encrypted on the way who wofr receives it. in this case a cyber crook. now, the credit card company did not make heather hadley pay for those charges on her card. but you know what? the same thing just happened to me last week. i got a call from my bank that my credit card had been used in indiana even though i was in washington and the credit card was in my wallet. security pros say if you receive any e-mails suggesting your credit card or bank account has been compromised, don't click on any link. instead, call your bank directly. guys, back to you. >> thank you so much tom. has it happened to you guys? i had a fraud alert when i was

did you see the jeff rossen thing in our last half hour in that raging river? he was trying to tell us what we need to know if we ever get caught in flooding. he's still down there. jeff how you doing? you dried out a little drying out. i will tell you, matt. deceptively dangerous. during all of this and especially during the rescue you watched moments ago, i literally thought they weren't going to catch me. that goes to show you what these brave men and women are going through every day. there were first responders killed trying to save people and now you can see why. one of the rescuers fell off the boat. it was incredibly scary. and i want to quickly bring in before we go vick my instructor. i got rescued. he kept going down river. we had a backup boat for him. so he is safe and okay. thank you for this. i hope you helped a lot of people here. >> yes. >> reporter: thank you. so we're dry and safe. keep in mind these floods are happening in texas and oklahoma right now but can pop up any

let's trend. >> do you know that something to do in the first minute of your child's life might affect their development years and years later? we know this. the umbilical cord is usually cut right after birth. researchers now say if you wait just an extra few minutes, even just three minutes, that can boost a child's brain development by age 4. the kids with that delayed cord clamping was said to have better social and motor skills. why? apparently that delay allows more blood to flow to the infant. more blood means more iron. iron is crucial for healthy brain development. i want to be clear, it did not raise their iqs. but isn't it amazing something you could do in that moment has an effect years later. >> this is a legitimate study. not like on the internet. a legitimate study. incredible. >> can we tell doctors can we wait four minutes, guys? >> that's probably going what's going to happen. you're going to say wait a second. relax. we'll see about that.

passengers. but the hungry fliers shared photos of this surprise delivery all over social media. >> what kind of tip did the delivery guy get? everybody give a dollar. who ordered pepperoni? >> all right. is it fair? this morning "the wall street journal" profiles that companies bar job applicants from haggling over pay. if you're a new hire you can't negotiate your starting salary. take it or leave it. the policy promotes transparency which obviously it does. and also fairness. since studies show that women don't usually negotiate as hard as men. what do you think about that? >> i think it's very interesting. at first i didn't like it because i thought you should be able to negotiate your salary but i do like the transparency aspect of it. this is what it pays. you want the job or not? >> seems to work for car companies. dealerships. >> but you think it's stereotypical to say women don't negotiate as hard as men do?

more than 2,000 of them. numbers have dwindled since then, but some here feel it's still a problem. one that's inspiring some creative solutions. this is the new sound track here. a sea lion symphony. >> i think it's gorgeous. i think it's beautiful. >> reporter: but to some they've become unwanted beach bums. >> i constantly get phone calls and e-mails, please can you do something about the sea lions. >> reporter: the port of historia says they are competing with commercial fishermen. the answer may come from a stranger who's trying to orca-strate a plan. the fake orca he hauls through parades to promote his whale watching business in washington state. >> the whale is the natural predator to a sea lion, i thought it would be funny to
8:21 am
take the whale down there and see if they move. >> reporter: but before he tows it five hours, his orca needs a tune-up. dave brown is even equipping it to make killer whale sounds. >> those sea lions might just wave at us and not pay any attention. but then again, it might scare them out of there. >> reporter: but experts say the sea lions just might be too smart. >> they figure out things quickly. they think the big issue is food is a big motivator for these animals. >> reporter: astoria's latest idea is lining the docks with beach balls which seem to scare the sea lions at least for now. affordable solution, right? >> affordable. and it's festive. it does look kind of nice out there. >> reporter: on this dock where you see all the sea lions right now, there's no beach balls there. so if the beach ball solution doesn't work, no worries. that giant orca will be driving

down here within the next couple weeks. so we'll see if that works. the sea lions are expected to leave here in the next month, but then they are expected to return come august. back to you guys. >> have you micced the sea lions? >> just go with it and put a bunch of horns out. >> we said this before, but savannah and i were in a kayak in namibia of all places next to a sea lion colony. >> there's an odor. >> you can't even describe it. >> we started paddling backwards. >> do you think it's going to work here, the killer whale? >> yeah. briefly anyway until they figure out it's not real. meantime, we saw natalie yesterday braving roller coasters. this morning let's relive our childhoods. jenna wolfe is here to explain what she's been up to. >> reporter: hey, guys. good morning. when we were younger we had the five or six foot water slide in our back yard and we couldn't get enough.
8:23 am
if only it was longer to last all afternoon. well, your prayers have been answered. check this out. it's one of the surest signs of summer. and if you build it, they will come. in droves. but this isn't just any slide. this is one endless water slide rolled out right through the heart of town. where you can slip and slide and slide and slide. >> if you're commuting during the week here, then you're on the slip and slide. >> reporter: the company, slide the city. if your main street has a hill, an appetite for the extreme, and a few thousand willing participants, this is the party for you. the rules are simple. grab a tube, take a running start, and hold on.
8:24 am
if you can. the slide itself, three football fields in length. >> it will take me forever to get to the bottom. think about how much time i have on my hands now. what could i do? i could pick out my favorite cloud. i could decide if i like pushing or pulling better. i could probably decide if i like tangerines or any other kind of orange. whoo! >> reporter: it's expected to travel to more than 150 cities offering up at least for an afternoon a rare taste of the extreme. but the best part? >> in the water or going fast? >> go fast. >> reporter: a whole lot of water slide and an endless summer of fun. so for as low as $20 you, too, can -- >> what was that? >> delayed reaction. >> it was the wind in my hair. you can experience it. it's in pensacola and raleigh

8:41 am
back up? is it the old bicycle analogy? >> of course. i mean you know that's the bad cliche, it's like riding a bike. that's what we keep saying, but it's true. we're a tight-knit group. we're more like brothers you know. you know we're buddies. you know we yell at each other. we get mad at each other, but at the end of the day, we love each other. >> let's remind people. the television series ended. you and sloan are on again, off again girlfriend were flying off. she was pregnant. >> she was pregnant. she's still pregnant. >> she's been pregnant for four years. >> the longest pregnancy in the history of the world. yeah, no. yeah, so we took off to kind of try to see if we could figure things out. but as the movie opens up the baby is on the way. >> all right. now, the story goes kevin, that during the shooting of this movie, you managed to break a leg. >> i did. >> how does this happen? >> well we were doing a scene, we had a bunch of cameos on that day. we had russell wilson gronkowski, all these guys. we had probably 25 30 cameos.
8:42 am
there was a scene where we were playing beach football. you know we thought it would make sense to play tackle football which at the end of the day, you know hindsight wasn't the greatest idea. you know jerry and i were sort of roughhousing. jerry tried to tackle me. we were in the sand but you just heard that weird -- >> pop? >> -- kind of almost like splitting chopsticks. i know that sounds terrible. it's like -- it's just like a weird kind of a split noise. >> how long did that lay you up? >> i got up because my adrenaline picked up. i was a little embarrassed, first of all. all these real tough athletes are standing there. i just popped up like i was going to try to walk it off. i ducked behind a bush and cried for two hours. >> kevin came out. >> i was weeping. you know i was so embarrassed. i kind of played through it for a few days. and then i mean i worked for three days with a broken leg. finally i said guys i've got to go to the hospital. this is not a sprain. my leg is folded back the other direction. i'm pretty sure it's broken. >> i want to ask you -- first of
8:43 am

9:01 am
dead, 14 still missing. in texas alone, 46 countries have issued disaster declaration. in the city of houston, 2500 cars were abandoned. people just up and walked away from their vehicles because they had to and there's a bunch more severe weather on the way. we've heard these terrible stories of people being swept away in their cars in their homes. just their bodies themselves. we actually had our buddy jeff rossen do a live demo for us. he was down in morganton, north carolina on how to survive dangerous flooding situations. >> he was in the water with a rescue swimmer and eventually he gets in with him and lets him go to see what it's like. watch this. >> yeah.
9:02 am
>> one of the rescuers in the boat falls into the water. and they did get jeff back in. jeff said he was petrified. . he thought they were going to miss him. >> explain what he was teaching just regarding the angle of your body. >> you don't want your head first. because if you hit things, that's going to be a traumatic head injury. so you want to kind of feet first get yourself feet first and so you can kind of keep yourself upright. >> and go with the water. and don't try to stand up. because then your feet will get swept out from under you. >> and the problem is people don't realize the power of water. i mean, about four to six inches of water moving at about four miles per hour takes you down. one to two feet of water will float a car. and four to six feet of water moving about four miles per hour will basically move a house off its foundation.
9:03 am
unfortunately the nine people in that house that went down the blanco river and then smashed into a bridge and we lost them, it's horrible. speaking of the blanco river, it was at one point moveing so fast 223 cubic feet per second. that's 144 million gallons a day. if you took that amount of water, that would fill 218 olympic-sized swimming pools a day. houston, america's fourth largest city, they got so much rain. they got 11 inches of rain in six hours. they just got another inch of rain in the last hour. they're now about -- they had 500 water rescues in that six-hour period. they now are only about an inch away from having their wettest year ever. >> all in the last week and a half. >> it's crazy. and this is going to as we'll see in a little bit is going to keep reloading and they're going to get more.
9:04 am
they've got more weather today and get a bit of a break now. and more coming before the end of the week. >> and it's interesting. we had a couple of the city officials we've seen go through that area. hurricane ike and other disasters. and they say that this is something again like they've never seen before. we instantly know the danger and the force of a hurricane, but back to the original conversation of the velocity of the flooding and how fast there are a couple of people reportedly who were frozen in fear in their vehicles as the water rushed around them and just the speed of it all is stunning. >> and the personal stories. the heart breaking phone calls. saying pray for them because they know they're being swept away. >> the homecoming queen on her way back from prom. >> our thoughts and prayers with the people in texas and oklahoma still as this continues on. i know you're going to be busy all week long tracking these other storms that are coming their way as well. switching gears on a much lighter note who do you think is the best celebrity pitchman
9:05 am
ever? or endorser? >> michael jordan. >> yeah, okay. there are those. i guess more recently within the last three months or so. >> oh. >> narrow it down. >> i'm going to scale it down to the last three months because that's what nielsen, the media survey company has done. take a listen. see if you can recognize this famous celebrity voice. >> i don't know -- >> oh, yeah. >> within seconds right? >> what is he selling? >> i don't care. but i'll buy it. >> so they say liam neeson. is that a video game? okay. good. so they found he is, in fact, liam neeson along with pierce brosnan -- he did the kia
9:06 am
sorrento commercial which you may remember. also jennifer garner. >> how much product is sold while they're the endorser? >> just maybe most memorable and who you immediately associate the product with the celebrity. >> matthew mcconaughey. >> and lincoln. >> jim carrey's imitation of him. >> so brilliant. i crack up laughing every time i see the real commercial just because i think of the jim carrey spoof. but if you listen to the words, it stops you in your tracks. it's a great add for that reason. but it's the only one on that list where i can name the pitch man and what they're pitching. and i love liam neeson, but i could not think of what he was selling. jennifer garner, i see the capital one commercial. but the others i couldn't name. >> i think the liam neeson hasn't had the repetitiveness as the others. >> lincoln is on all the time. >> people just like his voice. >> the one i remember is rob lowe with directv.
9:07 am
they had so many of those and they were funny. >> repetition. >> you have a faufrt,vorite, al. >> yeah. george foreman. with the grill. you can't go wrong with that grill. >> i do love that grill. we have one that still works. >> because it works. >> it still works. >> that's it. >> and tamron, you have one. >> suzanne somers. i think i still have one of the original thigh masters. >> you do? >> not anymore but back then. i just love her energy and the thigh master changed the game. it took her from tv to a whole other stratosphere. >> who was that? >> it was the norditrack. >> total gym. >> also ron. i still use my showtime rotisserie oven.
9:08 am
set it and forget it. bam. and the spinkrinkle. >> and he could scramble an egg inside a shell. pierce the top of it. >> and pocket fisherman. >> beat the master. >> who doesn't like a good pocket fisherman? >> you can't get the rotisserie anymore can you? >> i don't know. i've had it for ten years. >> talking about food and rotisserie, how about a big fish for dinner tonight? >> big. >> ooh. it's like flintstone big. >> jonathan black set out on a kayak in florida to catch a giant grouper. that was the goal of the day. mission accomplished. he reeled in a grouper -- i think it was a 552 pound. take a look. >> there he is. yeah, baby! that's a big boy.
9:09 am
>> whoo! >> all right. okay. >> when it's that big, it's just whatever you want to do. >> i love his reaction. the groaning and then yeah, baby. so that was the record catch -- actually a grouper that was 680 pounds. we did look it up online. groupers can get as large as 800 pounds. >> wow. i was diving with sharks and actually saw a grouper ram a shark. they are tough. >> they look tough. >> you have another shot to catch them if you're in florida. >> all right. mr. roker check of the weather? >> unfortunately radar is lighting up down along texas and louisiana where we have severe thunderstorm warnings. we've got flash flood watches and warnings going on as we zoom in here and show you. houston again, getting hammered.
9:10 am
lake charles all the way up to alexandria. we've got a risk of strong storms today. dangerous lightning, supercells. tornadoes can't be ruled out. 8 million people at risk. hail at about solis. so we're going to watch this very carefully. the one good thing that's come out of this, take a look at the lessening of the drought. from april to last week almost nothing. and i guarantee you we get the drought monitor update tomorrow, it will probably be just about gone. ironically, we've got drought here in the northeast in new england. we have some folk who is are way below normal for the month of high above the santa clara valley been watching the low clouds break up. now breaking out the sunshine in san jose. 58 degrees and the same temperature but very different looking sky around san francisco. misty skies there. low clouds and temperatures not moving much today around san francisco. close to 60 there. low 70s in the south bay. mid 70s towards the tri-valley.
