less than 24 hours after resigning her naacp post, rachel dolezal is ready to talk. did she lie about being black, and if so, why? she's here for an exclusive live interview today, tuesday, june 16th, 2015. good morning, everyone. 7:00 a.m. on a tuesday morning on the west coast. can you imagine being the center of this speculation, a lot of criticism. rachel dolezal hasn't had her side of the story out. >> we have not heard her in her own words and we'll get that in a little while. i want to start with today's top story, a deadly balcony collapse in berkeley, california. 13 people were on the fourth floor balcony. five were killed when it fell to the ground.
7:02 am
nbc's jacob ras cone is following what is a developing story for us. jacob, good morning to you. >> good morning to you. nbc news has learned the five people who were killed were irish students in town for the summer, likely on exchange visas and may have been simply celebrating a birthday party. emergency responders raced to the scene early tuesday morning after a call that a fourth floor apartment balcony collapses, threne people on it falling to the sidewalk below. >> looks like it may have fell from the fourth floor and struck the third floor balcony. >> the accident killed five people and injured eight others, many critically. the luxury apartment complex sits one block from the university of california berkeley. the u.s. ambassador to ireland later confirmed the victims were irish students. multiple reports not yet confirmed say they were celebrating a birthday at the time of the accident. investigators are working with building inspectors to find out what caused the fatal incident, but so far, the deadly collapse
7:03 am
remains unexplained. again, many of the eight survivors were injured critically, with life-threatening injuries. those investigators and building inspectors will be looking at whether there were simply too many people on the balcony at once. 13, or whether there was some other issue with the building. >> tragic story. jacob, thank you very much. yeah, a big weather story developing in the south that could affect you if you're traveling. tropical storm bill taking aim at texas. residents scrambling to get ready for the storm. it's expected to deliver a powerful punch in some areas where they have seen way too much rain. al is in houston this morning. good morning. >> good morning, savannah. and that's right, behind me is the buffalo bayou. this got to 37.3 feet during the flooding three weeks ago and it's going to threaten to do that again, as we show you video of people getting ready for bill. grocery store shelves were
7:04 am
ransacked as people came in and got supplies, batteries, flashlights, generators are now reported in short supply. houston schools are closed as well as galveston and many throughout the region. airport delays being reported. let's show you the track and what the latest is on bill. it has strengthen in the last couple hours. winds now at 60 miles per hour. moving northwest at about 13 miles per hour. as it comes onshore, we're starting to see some of the bands of heavier rain getting ready to move into houston and galveston. comes onshore, brings in heavy rain. it's going to also cause tropical storm warnings from houston on up into dallas and later on, making its way into oklahoma. rainfall amounts anywhere from 6 to 8 inches of rain, tornados are a possibility, as this continues to track north into wednesday and on into thursday, dallas gets involved, oklahoma, and on into parts of tulsa as well. flash flood watches, in fact, some 45 million people under a
7:05 am
flash flood watch or warning. 11 million people under tropical storm warnings. we continue to track this, and of course, it's going to cause massive flooding throughout the region in an area between texas and oklahoma that has already gotten dumped with anywhere from 10 to 15 inches of rain with more on the way. guys, back to you. >> very last thing they need. thank you very much. here we are, 11 days and counting, and still no signs of those escaped prisoners in upstate new york. the woman who police say helped them break out, remains behind bars this morning. now, authorities are looking into whether joyce mitchell, that woman, and the convicts had a plan to kill her husband. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is on the story for us. good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. with the search for the suspects now going into a week and a half, the investigation is becoming more complex. joyce mitchell who was in court yesterday didn't have a lot to say, but the district attorney said his investigation is just getting under way.
7:06 am
>> shackled and back in court, joyce mitchell is facing eight years in prison and additional charges. law enforcement source tells nbc news investigators are looking into allegations mitchell may have wanted inmates david sweat and richard matt to kill her husband lyle after she helped them escape from prison. no comment from the district attorney, who now says mitchell told her husband about some of the plan. >> lyle mitchell has information. joyce talked to him about her involvement during the last few days since she's been arrested. >> the d.a. said mitchell may not have played the only outside role in this elaborate escape. >> i expect that more people did. just seems unrealistic that it would be two inmates and joyce mitchell. >> investigators are now looking at manholes like the ones sweat and matt used popping to freedom. to see if they were tampered with fraught the outside. meanwhile, inside the
7:07 am
underground complex pipe system, we now know the convicts wrote notes on the wall, directions on how to navigate the twisty maze. >> they had been down in the tunnel system, you know, for days and weeks preparing for this. >> investigators say they're also looking into richard matt's hobby. >> was a fairly decent artist. >> using money from the sales of his paintings like this one to buy silence inside the prison or help from the outside. >> very certainly isn't something that should be disregarded. you know, we need to continue to pursue that information. >> this morning, the plot thickens. with one prison employee behind bars, could there be more to follow? while the manhunt remains focused here outside the prison, investigators say they're confident they're going to find the dangerous duo, but many believe the more time that passes, the more distance between police and those
7:08 am
fugitives. matt and savannah. >> miguel almaguer in new york for us. thanks very much. politics now and the race for the white house, republican presidential candidate jeb bush taking his campaign on the road today after formally announcing his bid for the white house monday. his first stop will be new hampshire. senior white house correspondent chris jansing is traveling with the former florida governor. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. in town halls like this, jeb bush's challenge will be to convince voters he's not just another member of a tired political dynasty. yesterday, he said he met his first president when he was born, his second when he was brought home from the hospital, but argued he's his own man with his own ideas. >> i decided i'm a candidate for the president of the united states of america. >> perhaps born to run, but eager to put his own accent on the bush family business. >> not one of us deserves a job by right of resume, party, seniority, family, or family narrative.
7:09 am
it's nobody's turn. it's everybody's test. >> former florida governor jeb bush came out swinging. >> i will run to win. >> introducing his family before a crowd of 3,000 at miami-dade college, including one former first lady. >> mom, can you ask them to sit down, please? >> tweeting this photo, talking to dad, but leaving out any mention of the most recent bush in the white house. instead, only jeb on the campaign signs and noise makers. touting his time as governor and distancing himself from the four gop senators also in the race. >> there's no passing off responsibility when you're a governor. no blending in to the legislative crowd. >> also unflinching when protesters interrupted his speech. >> the next president of the united states will pass meaningful immigration reform so that that will be solved. not by executive order. >> and promising 19 million new jobs in his first term.
7:10 am
but his first moment offstage, a bit off course, and as bush heads to new hampshire, already there, hillary clinton. timing her first news conference for just before he took the stage. but when asked to give bush advice on dealing with a famous last name -- >> a very tempting question to answer. but i won't. >> jeb bush sent a message to hillary clinton yesterday that he's going to be going after traditional democratic voters, young people, and hispanics. you heard him speaking spanish. he'll get a little help from his son, george p. bush later on in the week. he haseads after new hampshire to iowa, south carolina, and nevada. >> thank you very much. communities around north carolina's beaches remain on edge this morning. you can understand why after more shark sightings near oak island. they come on the heels of those shark attacks that sent two swimmers to the hospital. gabe gutierrez has more on that. gabe, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. this vacation spot is used to

back at 7:30 on tuesday back at 7:30 on a tuesday morning. the 16th of june, 2015. some very angry surf conditions down in galveston, texas. that surf churned up by this. the radar image of tropical storm bill. churning in the gulf there, affecting the people of texas who have already had a very tough spring. >> very ominous looking radar picture, and of course, tropical storm bill is one of the stories making headlines this morning. more than 11 million people under the tropical storm warning today. flash flood watches also in effect. the storm could bring up to 10 inches of rain to some areas. >> in other news, al qaeda said its second in command has been killed in a u.s. air strike. the man was also the leader of al qaeda's affiliate in yemen.
7:31 am
the u.s. says they're trying to aeda's reports. >> and the chicago blackhawks are the stanley cup champions. they beat the tampa bay lightning in game six of a great series. this is, by the way, the blackhawks' third win in six years. coming up, what would you do, or do you know what you would do if you came face-to-face with a shark? in light of the real life shark attacks, we have a special rosen report on what you need to know if you ever see one lurking in the water. but, let us begin with the resignation of former spokane naacp president rachel dolezal. she made her announcement on monday on the organization's facebook page. but this morning, there are even more questions surrounding her, her race, and also her background. in a moment, we'll speak exclusively with her in her first public comments since the allegations surfaced. first, the latest on her story. >> are you going to make a stand? >> this morning, spokane's controversial naacp leader has
7:32 am
stepped down, writing in a facebook post, this is not about me, it's about justice. but her statement doesn't offer an explanation or apology. in a controversy that has swirled around her claims she is black. >> are you african-american? >> i don't understand the question. >> your parents, are they white? >> dolezal has been under fire ever since her biological parents said the civil rights activist was born white. >> she may have felt that she had some advantage in her activism by being portrayed as a black woman. >> the latest revelation about dolezal's past a 2002 claim she was discriminated against at historically black howard university, partly because she was not african-american. the looultawsuit eventually dismissed. dolezal's legacy as a civil rights leader at risk.
7:33 am
>> all it took was one night to destroy everything she claimed with a lie. >> others caution against a rush to judgment. >> we have to understand that race is more complex than pigment and certainly inheritance. >> even though dolezal won't lead this naacp chapter anymore, she said she won't disappear, writing in her resignation, i will never stop fighting for human rights. rachel dolezal, good morning. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, too. >> you had a busy week. all the headlines. top trending item on twitter. you resigned your post at the naacp, and you started a discussion on race and what it means in this country. did this come as a surprise to you, or did you always expect the lid would be blown off your story at some point? >> the timing of it was a shock. i mean, wow. the timing was completely unexpected. as to the second question, i did feel that at some point, i would
7:34 am
need to address the complexity of my identity. >> let me just -- we can't talk about the big picture that you have created without talking about the small picture first. let me just ask you the question in simple terms again, because you have sent mixed signals over the years. are you an african-american woman? >> i identify as black. >> you identify as black. let me put a picture up of you in your early 20s, though. when you see this picture, is this an african-american woman? or is that a caucasian woman? >> that's not in my early 20s. >> a little younger, i guess? >> 16 in that picture. >> is she a caucasian woman or an african-american woman? >> i would say that visibly, she would be identified as white. by people who see her. >> but at the time, were you identifying yourself as african-american? >> in that picture, during that time, no. >> your parents were asked this question this week.
7:35 am
they didn't have any trouble answering it. they said she's clearly our birth daughter and we're clearly caucasian, that's just a fact. your father went on to say she's a very talented woman doing work she believes in. why can't she do that as a caucasian woman, which is what she is? how do you answer that question? >> well, first of all, i really don't see why they're in such a rush to whitewash some of the work i have done. and who i am. and how i have identified. and this goes back to a very early age with my my self-identification with the black experience. as a very young child. >> when did it start? >> i would say about 5 years old. >> you began identifying yourself as african-american? >> drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon and the black curly hair, you know, yeah, that was how i was portraying myself.
7:36 am
>> so it started way back then, rachel. when did you start, and i'll use the word, you can correct me if you don't like it, when did you start deceiving people and telling them you were black when you knew their questions were pointed in a different direction? like it -- deceiving people and telling them you were black when you knew their questions were pointed in a different direction. if when someone said are you black or white and you would say i'm black. you didn't say, i identify as black. you would say, i'm black. when did you start deceiving people? >> i do take exception to that. it's a little more complex than me identifying as blacker or answering a question of are you black or white. i was identified when doing human rights work in north idaho first as transracial and then when some of the on signals to some of the human rights work i was doing came forward and started the next newspaper article referred to me as a bi-racial woman.
7:37 am
the next article there were burglaries, nooses, et cetera was this is happening to a black woman. i corrected that. >> why not? you knew it wasn't true? >> well, because it's more complex than, you know, being true or false in that particular instant. >> the skeptics will say you didn't correct the reports. >> i didn't correct those reports. >> because it worked for you. because it helped you meet your goals. is that fair? >> i don't necessarily think that's fair. not just at that time but before then, too, i have had to answer those who have seen me and because i'm a black hair stylist, you know, have styled my hair in many different ways, have been identified as mixed, light-skinned, black, et cetera. you know, i have had to answer a lot of questions throughout my life. >> you have changed your appearance. your complexion appears darker than it did in the photos of you as a young lady.
7:38 am
have you done something to darken your complexion? >> i certainly don't stay out of the sun, you know. and i also don't -- as some of the critics have said, put on black face as a performance. >> let me address that. some people said the way you have changed your opinion is akin to putting on blackface. jonathan capeheart wrote in the washington post, blackface remains highly racist no matter how down with the cause a white person is. do you understand what he means by that? >> absolutely. >> do you agree? >> i have a huge issue with blackface. this is not some freak birth of a nation mockery blackface performance. this is on a very real connected level how i have actually had to go there with the experience. not just a visible representation but with the experience and the point at which that really solidified was when i got full custody of
7:39 am
isaiah. so you're my real mom? he's in high school. for that to be something that is plausible, you know, i certainly can't be seen as white and be isaiah's mom. >> a couple of quick points. there are reports that at times, at one time in particular, you looked at a friend of yours, albert wilkinson, and you told friends of yours that he was your father. he is an african-american man who is clearly not your father. was that done to enhance your resumé as an african-american woman? or was there another reason for that? >> there was another reason. he actually approached me in north idaho. you know, we just connected on a very intimate level as family. >> why point out an
7:40 am
african-american man and say that is my father when you know your father is a caucasian man? >> albert wilkerson is my dad. any man can be a father. not every man can be a dad. >> your lawsuit against howard university in 2002 where you claim you were discriminated against because you were a pregnant white woman. do you understand how people could hear that and say, here is another example. she said she identified herself as being african-american or black from a young age but here is a case where she identified herself as a white woman because it worked for her under the circumstances. >> the reasons for my full tuition scholarship being removed and my teaching position as well, my t.a. position, were that other people needed opportunities. you probably have have white relatives to help with your tuition. i thought that was an injustice.
7:41 am

you are more likely to ward it off. >> reporter: get to the shark in the eyes and gills. >> yes. >> reporter: i have always assumed there are more shark attacks in the summer months because there are more people out in the ocean in the water. that's true. but experts say there is another reason as well. sharks' metabolisms are higher when the weather is warmer. that means they digest food faster, so yes, they are hungrier. savannah, clearly you are not listening to the yum-yum yellow tip. get into another color and join me at the beach. >> definitely. speaking of magnificent water creatures, you look great in that wet suit. >> reporter: i'm rocking it, right? >> all right. >> jeff, thank you very much. i think i would not have the frame of mind or presence of mind to casually back up. >> how about bonking him in the nose or the gills? >> the eyes. >> i don't think i would have the courage. >> let's get a check on the weather from al in houston. >> thank you so much. we are waiting for tropical storm bill.

9:02 am
and they are white. the story went viral after rachel did this interview with an affiliate in spokane. >> are you african-american? >> i don't -- i don't understand the question. >> were your parents -- are they white? >> this blew up, a combination of the parents saying she's white and that interview a few days ago. rachel stepped down if are the naacp presidency in spokane yesterday. this morning she sat down with matt. matt started with the question everyone wanted an answer. >> let me just ask you the question in simple terms again because you have sent mixed signals over the years. are you an african-american woman? >> i identify as black. >> let me put up a picture of you in you are your early 20s though. when you see this picture is this an african-american woman or is that a caucasian woman? >> that's not in my early 20s.
9:03 am
>> youngerer i guess. >> 16 in that picture. >> is she a caucasianer or an african-american woman? >> i would say visibly she would be identified as white by people who see her. >> at the time were you identifying yourself as african-american? >> in that picture during that time, no. >> when did it start? >> i would say about 5 years old. >> you began identifying yourself as african-american? >> i was drawing self-portraits with the brown craneyon instead of peach and black curl ary hair. yeah. that was how i was portraying myself. >> so over the last few days as the story developed reports if the media started referring to rachel as trans racial, bi racial and black. matt asked her about the terms. >> the cynics and skeptics will say you didn't correct those reports.
9:04 am
>> i didn't correct toes reports. >> because it worked for you, helped you heat your goals. is that fair? >> i don't necessarily think that's fair. over -- not just at that time but before then, too i have had to answer those who have seen me and because i'm a black hair stylist, you know, is have styled my hair in many different ways. have been identified as mixed, light-skinned, black et cetera. you know, i have had to answer a lot of questions. throughout my life. >> so she did go on to tell matt she hopes this conversation starts a larger conversation about the definitions of race ethnicity, culture, self-determination and empowerment. what do you think? >> not to discredit the work she's done as a teacher in africana studies and at the naacp chapter that she worked
9:05 am
at. her story is so conflicted and she seems to change versions of the story. other reports have surfaced. they just don't align with what she wants to say she is and feels. i thought it was interesting. she had her two thekids here who are black. she basically said in their eyes, they view me as biologically human and actually culturally african-american. i don't know. it seems she wants to latch onto this trans racial identity. but it's a hard one. i think it is a very sensitive subject. i don't know. it seems sometimes whatever is most convenient for her. >> she sued howard university, the black university for district manager thags because she was -- discrimination because she was white. if we are to be honest with ourself s in having the conversation, i don't know if we got the answer as to why she's
9:06 am
doing this. >> right. >> i think for me it is would she have accomplished the things she's done had she not identified as white. what does identifying as black mean? as an african-american person, i don't know. when someone says i identify as black does that mean the texture of your hair? tanning of your skin? what does that mean? >> exactly. >> i didn't get that answer from her and why do you identify as black? what does that bring to your life? what does that bring to the job that you do and the raising of your children? what does that mean? >> the question i had before and after is why can't you support and advocate for and relate to the african-american experience without making yourself african-american? >> that's what her dad said. she could have done this without
9:07 am
having to pass herself off as black. >> but she's not answered the question. >> right. >> or what motivated her reasons for the change. >> i think all of us are rightfully as journalists sensitive to it and as human beings. you don't want to feel like you are judging someone certainly not in this day and age. however there are authentic questions that if you are on a public stage like the "today" show you should be ready to answer. it's her journey. she's now stepped down and hopefully naacp in spokane can move forward and continue their work. >> we appreciate she was forth forthcoming the if giving us her side of the story. >> but she was pushed into it by her parents. >> she didn't volunteer. >> she's the one who created the story. >> it's her journey. >>er all right. shall we do the sugar thing? >> i don't know. we love joy bauer.
9:08 am
>> everyone does. >> here's the deal. joy is motivating us to kick our sugar habits tr for ten days. life is about pod radiation. this is not about being a task master of diet. >> i'm not a sugar stealer. >> we have confessed to you some of the things we love most in our lives. you are going to assist us in finding alternatives. >> right. these are sweet swaps. natalie loved caramel popcorn. i made for her some reduced balsamic. it's a sweet tangy topping for popcorn. popcorn is a whole grain without added sugar. willie loves cookies. >> the little ones. >> these are oatmeal banana pecan cookies with no added sugar or artificial anything. >> those look amazing. i could dig into that popcorn. that looks like a cookie. what is that?
9:09 am
>> tamron this is for you. when i asked you what your sort of sweet indulgence was you said candy all day long. >> i have candy jars filled to the top at home. as soon as you walk in, huge candy jars. >> i thought maeb we'd have a lot of sweet produce items. i froze grapes. you can pop them in your mouth. grape or cherry tomatoes, sugar snap peas, red pepper sticks, hummus or salsa. no sugar. but you can dip into the cookies as well. >> that looks good to me . >> let's switch. >> absolutely. >> does that mean i can keep my entemann's. >> these recipes are on >> for education purposes wie is it difficult for us to reduce our is su gar addiction? >> i think we are programmed to crave and love and gobble down sweets. moderate amounts of added sugar
9:10 am
isn't evil or the enemy. it's fine. excessive amounts get you into trouble. let's remove everything for ten days and after ten days we'll be more selective about what we bring into our diet. >> things that are refined with sugar make it difficult. joy, thank you. >> good luck! >> you are amazing. >> this is a great story as i swallow this frozen grape. really good. we love ed see ran are. he's amazing. look at this great surprise. a 13-year-old girl was at a talent show at a mall in canada singing one of his hits when lo and behold, who surprises her. take a look. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ♪ it's ever green ♪ ♪ and baby your smile forever in
9:11 am
my mind and memory ♪ >> wow. what a duet. sydney was performing "thinking out loud." ed was there shopping when he saw it going on. so he decided to surprise her. isn't that amazing? >> finish that song. i love it. >> it's a beautiful song. >> to think he was performing here when he just started out. that song is one of my favorites. >> it's good. al is in houston tracking the tropical storm down there. al what does it look like? >> right now we are getting bands of rain coming in. let's give you the latest on what's going on with tropical storm bill. still offshore. right now it has in the last hour or so intensified. winds up to 60 miles per hour. northwesterly winds. motion at 13 . 105 miles south west of galveston. the thing makes land fall in the

next few hours. as it does it will bring in heavy rain, tropical storm warnings. over 111 1 11 million people affected. three to five inches of rain in the houston area. throughout the morning heavy rain spreads up to wrk aco, san antonio, flash flood watches through tomorrow morning. three to five inches of rain. keep going forward. into the early morning hours of wednesday you're going to see dallas get involved. flash flood watches in effect. rainfall 5 to 7 inches. the problem here, guys, as we continue to move the map forward so much rain they have this the last three weeks. as you can see oklahoma city gets into this by wednesday afternoon. it continues on up into the midwest and will continue to affect those areas. here they have picked up anywhere from 10 to 15 inches of rain in the last three or four weeks. so that's the big problem. nowhere for the rain to go. flooding a problem.

we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® has also been proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. not this time. not with xarelto®. i'll have another arnold palmer. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more ea sily 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, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleedin g, 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 tak e 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 kidney liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. if i seem a teeny bit crankier over the next ten days there's a good reason for it. >> we're kicking off our sugar detox and we want you to join in. here to explain what we can and can't eat during this time to make sure people stick to it is our fearless leader, nutritionist joy bauer. >> it's not going to be hard and you're definitely following it because you already don't have a lot of sugar. >> you don't eat sugar. >> you're almost already
