5:02 am
this saturday morning. i'm craig melvin alongside sheinelle jones and stephanie ruhle and dylan dreyer. >> busy morning. >> busy morning. a lot to get to. >> let's get right to it. it's our top story this morning as we follow tropical storm hermine's path as it slowly makes its way up the east coast. the storm hammering the coast overnight. the storm threatens to ruin labor day weekend for a lot of people. we have full coverage. let's begin with nbc's kerry sanders in virginia beach. good morning. goodness. >> well, it's a morning, not i good morning. winds about 45 miles per hour here with the strongest gusts so far. 30,000 people in this area have no power. just to the south of here on hatteras island in dare county, north carolina, a possible tornado touched down. it apparently picked up two mobile homes with residents inside. they've been rushed to the hospital with injuries.
5:03 am
along the atlantic coast this morning, it's all about getting ready. in new jersey and as far as cape cod. >> we're putting extra lines on the boats and stuff like that. you know? some of the guys are moving their boats up to a cove where it's a little bit safer. >> hermine roared ashore in the florida panhandle as a category 1 hurricane. >> whoa! >> then lost its 80 mile per hour winds as she crossed over land into georgia and the two carolinas. >> we're going to lose something. >> reporter: but along her path, a trail of destruction. more than 250,000 customers lost power, trees came down, streets flooded. it's a sign of what could come later today. now back over the atlantic where waters are seven degrees warmer than usual, hermine could become a hurricane again. heavy rains, winds, flash flooding and rip currents, a threat up the coast as far as maine. >> storms downgraded, people are
5:04 am
saying, well, maybe it's safer to go but it's still going to be a storm. and it's going to create tidal surge and rough water in the ocean especially. >> reporter: for those who endured hermine, a word of warning, don't ignore mother nature. >> my husband had just walked out and came back in the house. so thank god that he didn't get hit. >> reporter: a tree branch fell on a man in florida and killed him. it's why authorities are suting people limit their time outside and please don't drive. emergency shelters have now been opened. and believe it or not, in this weather, we're going to actually see some people who decided to go jogging. this is what the authorities say is not a good idea. clearly they're running in a group. hopefully they'll take care of each other. >> look at that wind whipping behind you. be careful. be careful, carrie. >> hermine expected to keep moving north. already some beachgoers in new jersey are feeling the effects of that. dangerous rip currents are keeping some people out of the
5:05 am
water. nbc's tammy leitner. good morning. >> reporter: this is a different scene than what it looked like yesterday. tourists and locals alike were flocking to the beach, enjoying miles and miles of sunshine put there were red flags out yesterday warning of rip tides. those warnings were up and down the coast from myrtle beach to nantucket. the way a rip current works is that a strong current will pull a swimmer out, making it very difficult to escape. difficult but not impossible. you can escape one if you stay calm and swim parallel with the shore until you are outside of the rip current. as you can imagine, not a lot of people will be coming out to the beach today because of the dangerous conditions already out here. craig? >> tammy leitner, seaside heights, new jersey. thank you. >> i was there yesterday with nobody in the water. i want to get a check now, dylan, where is this storm
5:06 am
headed and when will it be over? >> we've been talking about it for 17 days. that's how long the storm is hanging around. it moves out over the water and then gets stuck. here it is right now, across northeastern north carolina. it's got winds at 660 miles per hour. the heaviest of the rain is through virginia beach. we also have banding up across parts of maryland and that will continue to try to move northward. i want to point out, going through the end of this weekend into labor day, it's not so much the rain that's an issue. it's the fact that this storm is offshore. it could strengthen up to winds with 75 miles per hour and that's what's going to continue to push. a lot of this water onshore and create gusty winds. we have a dip in the jet stream and the thing is going to get trapped, right in through here. that's why it's not going to move any time soon. you have this water being pushed onshore. we are looking at storm surge in addition to the astronomical high tide.
5:07 am
we're looking for very gusty winds. at times, perhaps as high as 40 up to 60 miles per hour. not just down in the mid-atlantic. also across parts of long island, also up into nantucket and the south coast of massachusetts. so that's how expansive it is. then you add 2 to 4 feet in addition to the astronomical high tide and that could lead to coastal flooding, down through the mid-atlantic, up across long island and also through new england as well. as for rain, we're not looking at a whole lot of rain except for areas down near virginia into north carolina where we could still see an additional 4 to 5 inches of rain. but then you go up into southern new jersey, atlantic city could see about 2 inches. the farther north you go, we're looking at more or less clouds and spotty showers. it's the wind that's going to cause damage and the coastal flooding that will cause some issues right along the coast. >> this will be around for a few days. >> up until wednesday and then it will finally pull away. >> exacerbating back-to-school blues. the race for the white

house. donald trump will be in detroit today where he's attempting to reach out to members of the african-american community. this as he blasts hillary clinton, again, after an fbi released a report on friday finding she knew very little about how to handle classified e-mails. jacob rascon is following it from detroit. good morning. >> reporter: after weeks of criticism that he was taking his pitch to black voters to bite a -- white audiences, donald trump will be here. this as hillary clinton is again under fire about her e-mails. donald trump catching up. ♪ where at least i know i'm free ♪ >> reporter: donald trump has a lot to prove in detroit. his support among black voters almost nonexistent with be his pitch, what do you have to lose, heavy criticized. >> we've got things to lose. i have a family, a career. what's he talking about? >> reporter: nearly 40% of this
5:09 am
city lives in poverty. detroit native and former gop rival ben carson at his side, trump will argue his policies are the answer. >> it's disgraceful, frankly, what's happened with respect to the african-american community, how badly they've been treated by democrats. >> reporter: during trump's first visit to a black church he won at dress the congregation, the pastor says, instead he'll answer presubmitted questions after the service. "the new york times" publishing a leaked memo of trump's suggested scripted answers and religious leaders representing hundreds of detroit area congregations signing an open letter rejecting the candidates. discrimination, bullying and fear mongering have no place in the white house. >> if you try to engage us, then why not have a rally where black folks can come and wave our hands and say what we want to say like everybody else. >> reporter: criticism notwithstanding, some polls show a tightening race as hillary clinton battles her e-mail controversy yet again. the fbi publishing notes from last month's lengthy interview
5:10 am
with the secretary during which clinton told investigators, she didn't recall being trained on how to handle classified information. relying on staff to use their judgment when e-mailing her, adding she didn't know the letter "c" on an e-mail meant confidential. the fwib director said 2,000 of clinton's e-mails contained classified information. she told the fbi she didn't receiving any e-mails should not be on an unclassified system, including e-mails about targets of future drone strikes. she also told the fbi she didn't receive instructions on preserving her records when she left office but she just suffered a concussion and couldn't recall every briefing she received. the clinton campaign says they're happy that the fbi notes were released and clinton acknowledged having a private e-mail server was a mistake. meanwhile, secret service is just arriving on scene, inside about 2,000 people will fit and outside, three groups of protesters are also expected.
5:11 am
>> jacob rascon, thank you. joy reed is the host of "a.m. joy" on msnbc. good to see both of you. >> good morning. >> let's start with donald trump. he was meeting with black pastors in pennsylvania yesterday. he's got the meeting in detroit today. these overtures to the african-american community and hispanic community as well to a certain extent, he's polling as you know, single digits with these groups. are these meetings about getting these folks to vote for them or are they about something else. >> the fact that these are such small forums, he's skipped the larger, more traditional forums like the urban league, the naacp to which he's been invited and declined the invitations suggest what this is about is about raising donald trump's numbers with white suburban voters who would feel uncomfortable with a candidate who they feel has perceptions of racial animus. these meetings are not about
5:12 am
wooing the african-american community or latino community but making quite suburban voters more comfortable with trump's candidacy. >> on friday the fbi released summaries from the interviews they did with her about the private e-mail server. what new exactly came out? we knew she didn't ask permission to use it, yet we knew she received classified information. what do we know? how does the story change? >> if you're a voter that already was feeling uncomfortable with hillary's e-mail situation, this adds a lot of information for you, evidence of intent, maybe other things. there were three dozen things she couldn't recall. for a candidate who's being seen as untrustworthy and evasive, it will add to that. that being said, if you're a voter that brushed off the e-mail thing or won't vote for donald trump, i don't think this changes anything for you. when you look at those white college educated voters, they're still weighing, frankly, which candidate they least dislike. >> with that said, let me ask you a question.
5:13 am
how should she handle all of this? she recently raised $143 million in just the month of august. >> yes. >> in the meantime, she mentioned e-mails. we're hearing people are nagging about donors to the clinton foundation, did she give favors? how should she handle this? a lot of people say have a press conference, answer reporter questions. will that really do anything? >> no. i think the real codicil in politics, when you're winning, doing what you're doing. hillary clinton is winning the polls in terms of statewide polls, national polls. doing a press conference will only add more to a story that doesn't have an and. if there was an and, if she was hacked by the russians or there was a national security breach, theren isn eisn't a story. doing a press conference she can only hurt herself by adding more intrigue among the media. she's winning.
5:14 am
she should keep doing what she is doing. >> i would tend to agree except press conferences are the best practice for debates and that first debate will be make or break for her. >> it sounds as if you think she'll be at a disadvantage in the first presidential debate because she's not spent as much time taking questions from the press? >> hillary clinton hasn't been great on her feet. this debate will be an enormous test for her, for a candidate that hasn't been comfortable in tricky swayings. >> one thing is for sure. there will be lots of folks watching. >> tell me about it. >> good to see you. quick programming note. on wednesday, matt lauer will be sitting down separately with hillary clinton and donald trump as part of our special commander in chief forum. it will be the first joint candidate event of the general election. that's september 7th, 8:00 eastern, right here on nbc. it will also be simulcast on msnbc. out in california, outrage this morning. now that former stanford

5:16 am
what the victim looked like. the detective asking, if you saw her again, would you recognize her? brock responding, uh, probably not. exclusive pictures obtained by nbc news show turner hours after the former all-star swimmer was tackled by students who saw him on top of an unconscious female near a dumpster after a fraternity party on stanford's campus. in prison, turner received hate mail while the judge aaron persky faced outrage over his sentencing. persky could have turner to 14 years in prison but instead gave him a six-month sentence that was eventually whittled down to three months. persky supporters say the judge shouldn't be swayed by public opinion and his decision should be respected. more than a million people have signed petitions online to remove persky from the bench. strangers in support of an unnamed victim. >> the more people that get out and say this is wrong, that's how change is going to happen. >> reporter: one community now hoping this case will be a turning point in how society
