in northern louisiana, 12 to 16" of rainfall with this storm. pretty incredible stuff near the shrevport area. all of that water now has to go downstream. it would only get worse. we still have all of these ars in red under flash flood warning, about 4 million people and they've been under a flood emergency in northern louisiana for a while now. 23 million are in watches. an additional three to six easily. some area could pick up another foot of rain especially down toward the new orleans area. you saw how bad the pictures were. now thunderstorms are training and heading up over those same spots. we're not going to be watching it get any better for probably two or three days. all that water has to make its way down to the gulf of mexico through the river. >> i can't imagine having to deal with all that flooding. >> lot of water. >> and cleanup. that's tough. hillary clinton and bernie
sanders faced off last night for their fourth one on one debate and first since sanders' upset victory in michigan. the debate centered on immigration and for the first time clinton broke with the obama administration on the issue, vowing she wouldn't deport undocumented immigrants in thes who haven't committed crimes. sanders agreed with her. >> i do not have the same policy as the current administration does. i will not deport children. i would not deport children. i do not want to deport family members either. but of the undocumented people living in our country, i do not want to see them deported. i want to see them on a path to citizenship. >> i happen to agree with president obama on many, many issues. i think he's done a great job as president of the united states. he's wrong on this issue of deportation. i disagree with him on that. so, to answer your question, no, i will not deport children from the united states of america. >> after the debate, clinton headed to another event in miami
got a big celebrity endorsement, actress, eva longoria. >> we saw two candidates on the stage tonight but there really is for me, and for our community, only one candidate who is speaking to us. please help me welcome the future president of the united states, hillary clinton. >> clinton, no doubt, helps longoria's support will help her with latinos on tuesday. and right now polls show her leading in the sunshine state. in ohio there are 160 delegates up for grabs. she has a smaller advantage there, with only nine points. the polls had her ahead and sanders ended up winning there. for the republicans, 66 delegates are on the line. kasich is trailing trump by six points. in marco rubio's state of florida, trump is also ahead by
23 points. rubio's poll numbers have been tanking. last night, he said he regretted making personal attacks against trump. >> in terms of things that have to do with personal stuff, at the end of the day it's not something i'm entirely proud of. my kids were embarrassed by it. a and, you know, if i had to do it again, i wouldn't. >> meanwhile, former candidate jeb bush is meeting with rubio, cruz and kasich, but not trump. he hasn't said whether or not he will endorse anyone before the primaries tuesday. special ops in iraq has given them key information about operations. this detainee used to work for saddam hussein. isis has already used artillery loaded with chlorine and mustard powder. former u.s. air force mechanic from new jersey is guilty of trying to join isis.
