even looks hot in that shot there. >> it's early. >> still a beauty shot. >> that's happening "today in the bay." back in half an hour. good morning. breaking overnight, two firefighters killed, at least six others injured when a building engulfed in flames suddenly collapses. this morning how kansas city is coping with the loss. showdown on the strip. the democratic candidates for president take the stage tonight in las vegas for their debate. and hillary clinton takes the time to visit donald trump's casino. >> i don't think it's entertaining when someone insults immigrants, insults women. >> what was she thinking? a woman use as live streaming app to record herself driving drunk.
7:01 am
>> i can't drive. >> how followers tipped off police to help get her off the road. >> and "playboy" announced it will no longer publish nude photos. that's "today" on october 13, 2015. >> announcer: this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live at 1a rockefeller plaza. >> good morning. i'm trying to think of something to say about "playboy" that won't get us in trouble. >> let me say for all the husbands in america, there were nude photos in "playboy"? >> hillary clinton and bernie sanders are looking to make their cases to voters and avoid costly mistakes.
7:02 am
three long shots on the stage, martin o'malley, lincoln chafee and jim webb just trying to get noticed and have a breakout performance. we'll talk to nicole wallace just ahead, but let us start this morning with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, savannah, good morning to you. welcome to las vegas. she's already in a league of her own, former first lady, former secretary of state and perhaps most important tonight, the only democrat who has ever been in a professional debate before. she's a diligent preparer, she's been debating since high school but tonight her campaign recognizes the stakes are high. will she solidify her status or give wheels to those who say the wheels are coming off the bus? hillary clinton immediately took aim at the republican front-runner donald trump, showing up unannounced at a union protest outside a trump-owned hotel. >> some people think mr. trump
7:03 am
is entertaining, but i don't think it's entertaining when somebody insults immigrants, insults women. >> reporter: at center stage tonight, clinton's main priority to avoid mistakes in the headlines. then there's the ongoing e-mail controversy. while partisan sniper has undercut the house benghazi committee, clinton will try to argue the scandal is fueled by republican attacks, with the last round of her personal e-mails being released just three days before the iowa caucuses. and clinton will try to deliver a message to joe biden, still toying with a run of his own, that despite the controversy, she still a safe bet. finally, can clinton connect with voters? with clinton facing criticism as a washington insider, she'll argue as a woman she's the true outsider candidate. and later she's deployed self-deprecation to soften her
7:04 am
image, even mocking her robotic demeanor. >> i was constructed in a garage in palo alto a very long time ago. >> the bottom line, clinton advisers have insisted there's a much bigger line between democrats and republicans than among democrats themselves. in six months of campaigning, hillary clinton has only mentioned bernie sanders's name a total of at best five times. >> hillary clinton's biggest rival on tonight's stage is bernie sanders. he's never faced as high profile event as this debate. andrea, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. bernie sanders is ahead in new hampshire. he's attracting big crowds and
7:05 am
raking in big dollars. the question remains is he going to attack hillary clinton? he hasn't until now. will that all change tonight? the fire brand democratic socialist is getting used to the huge crowds. but this is a whole new stage. their preparation is as different as the candidates' styles. hillary clinton's had her washington super lawyer playing bernie sanders in mock debates. sanders has stuck to briefing books. now in the biggest debate of his life, how will the surging sanders take on the democratic front-runner? >> obviously differences of opinion they should be discussed. >> reporter: will sanders get personal in he says he won't but he will call clinton out for veering left, flip-flopping and will he sharpen his attack of her being backed by wealthy donors? and he says he isn't too far
7:06 am
left to be in the campaign, especially after this comment to chuck todd on "meet the press." >> people will have to contrast my consistency and my willingness to stand up to big corporations against hillary clinton. >> are you a capitalist? >> no, i'm a democratic socialist. >> thousands have turned out at campuses around the country. tonight he'll have to prove his presence can resonate with a wider audience. until now bernie sanders has stood by his principles. >> thank you. we're joined now by nicole n msnbc contributor and former adviser to george w. bush. good morning to you. >> good morning. big night. >> are you expecting a slug fest or sober policy seminar? >> well, you know, i'm on the other side but i feel nervous for hillary clinton.
7:07 am
she's in the same unenviable position of being the democratic party's head candidate but not heart candidate. once again somebody else has captured the passion of the democratic party. when it happened eight years ago, when barack obama captured their imagination, you sort of felt bad for hillary. if she makes the mistake again of not capturing the passion that bernie sanders, she'll only have herself to blame. >> what can you do in a situation like that? >> i think preparing hillary clinton is different. you have to get a candidate like hillary clinton out of her head space and into that loose, almost like the val character from snl last weekend. but she has to avoid a major gaffe like the kinds she made on her book tour when she said she was flat broke when she left the
7:08 am
white house and had driven herself in almost 20 years. that is not where the democratic party is right now. they are in many ways more angry than the republican primary voters about a system they view as rigged and corrupt, a system that hillary clinton has been in the center of for 25 years. >> and bernie sanders obviously exploiting that feeling among democratic voters. but let's talk about the elephant in the room, joe biden. do you assume he's watching tonight and this is part of his calculus in determining whether to get in, how she does in the debate? >> yeah. you know him. you've interviewed enough politicians to know that every politician that watches debates the same way, they yell at the television. whether he gets in or not, he's going to be having choice words at the performance of all of them. at the end of the day i believe he is going through an excruciating process of balancing his grieving process with his desire to continue to
7:09 am
serve the country he loves. there's no doubt he has an opening should he wish to take it. >> he's up against the political calendar more and more. nicole wallace, it's always good to talk to you. >> thank you. >> there was a tragic fire in kansas city overnight that took the life of two firefighters. natalie has to story. >> there was a massive fire that is still smoldering this morning. this morning officials in kansas city, missouri are investigating a two-alarm fire at an apartment building that killed two firefighters and injured two others overnight. fire crews dispatched around 7:30 p.m. found the structure heavily damaged by smoke and flames. >> when we arrived on the scene, we had two individuals in the structure. from there we went to an option of attack, conditions changed, we had to pull out of the
7:10 am
building. >> those two people were rescued from the second floor of the building. as the firefighters were pulling back from the structure, a wall gave way, killing two firefighters instantly. two other firefighters were transported to the hospital. >> they saved two civilians carrying them out of the second floor on ladders before the wall collapsed. they did not die in vain. >> the firefighters are 27-year-old larry. ledgeio and 13-year veteran john mesh. >> now to a confrontation in north carolina. at g-- allegations that they mae threats outside a children's birthday party. pete williams has the story. >> reporter: good morning to you.
7:11 am
they are part of a group call respect the flag. in an incident partly caught on cell phone video, prosecutors say seven pickup trucks flying confederate flags drove up to a family birthday party in late july in douglasville, a small town west of atlanta. witnesses say 15 people charged, ten men and five women yelled racial slurs at the african-american men at the party, including children and threatened violence. some brandished weapons. four of the people identified said in july that the party-goers started it, throwing rocks and yelling at the convoy. all 15 are charged with violating street gang and terrorism prevention law and making terroristic threats. those are serious charges with a
7:12 am
maximum sentence of 15 years. georgia does not have a hate crime law. the southern law center said people were terrorized in an act reminiscent of the ku klux klan. >> thank you very much. >> let's turn back to natalie with a breaking story out of the middle east. >> israel's prime minister is calling an emergency security meeting after a new wave of deadly violence escalated overnight. john yang is covering the events for us from london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. right now the death toll in israel stands at three in four separate attacks. police say the deadliest came in a pair of attacks in jerusalem. in one palestinians got on a bus and started shooting and stabbing passengers. in the second, a driver rammed his bus into a bus station and got out and stabbed pedestrians. this is just the latest in
7:13 am
escalating violence across israel and west bank. at least 7 israeli ass and 29 palestinians killed in the past four week. >> thank you, john. in the netherlands, investigators looking into the downing of mh17 showed a haunting recreation of the plane. investigators concluded it was brought down by a russian-made buk missile that exploded less than three feet from the cockpit. it did not conclude who fired it. the 198 people on the board they said lost consciousness as soon as the missile hit. >> three years ago the supreme court barred sentences for life without parole for those under 18 when they committed crimes
7:14 am
and now they'll decide whether that should apply to those sentenced before the 2012 ruling. dell is buying emc for a whopping $67 billion, the biggest price tag for a tech merger in history. it helps dell expand beyond the computer market into data storage, mobile and other fields, which it calls the fastest growing area of the tech industry. and a daring rescue caught on camera shows how far firefighters will go to save a little. tim tawater was off duty on saturday when he saw this fire at a neighbor's house. he went in and got the dog. he said he didn't do it for a pat on the back but because it needed to be done. that's the kind of neighbor you want to have. >> it's amazing he was able to walk out of there.
7:15 am
>> al, how's the weather looking this week? >> i called in some troops. we've got a great forecaster here for you. take a look and listen to haley. >> i cannot believe this. oh, my god! ah! the wind's really picked up! oh, my god! >> that's out in watertown, south dakota. she does a terrific job, i tell you. dylan and i have to be on our toes with somebody like that. here's a front pushing through. that's the one that caused all the winds. ahead it have we've got showers in new england also making their way through upstate new york. look at the winds that are coming behind this front. 20 mile-an-hour sustained gusts in cleveland, buffalo 29, 14 mile-an-hour winds here in new york. as the front pushes through, that low pressure pushes up into canada. we're going to look for very gusty conditions. airport delays will most likely be a problem as the day wears on today.
