>> the storms are our top story. here's where things stand with harvey right now. as feared, that storm's death toll rising standing at 38 with six more deaths confirmed in harris county texas overnight. officials now estimate more than 100,000 homes have been either damaged or destroyed. >> there's a new crisis unfolding in beaumont this morni morning. the entire city without water. could be all for days. crews have to wait until the flood waters recede before they can even begin to inspect those damaged pumps. >> the president and first lady plan to return to the disaster zone tomorrow with possible stops in both texas and louisiana. >> and take a look at these stunning before and after satellite images from texas. to the left, what it looked like ten months ago, and on the right, the flooding there this week. >> it picture says it all. we've got this story covered.
start with nbc ez miguel almaguer. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. this is wet. so many of waking up to flood waters pouring into the communities, death toll standing at nearly 48. a number that will likely rise, over night, a different state with a similar story. a week weakened harvey dumping rain flooding roads and a neighborhoods in nashville. tearing a part a barn and several homes. in east texas, new urgency. time may be running out to find those still stranded by the storm. at this swamp school in the city of vider, disparate people and pets whisked to safety by a navy chopper. nearby in beaumont rescuers ripped through a roof searching
for a mother and four children believed to be inside. 100,000 homes now affected by harvey. 32,000 people in shelters. what's not known, how many people may be trapped and in need of help. so in hard-hit beaumont, surrounded by water, a cruel bit of irony. there is no clean drinking water. that forced this hospital to shut down. some patients hurried to helicopters. and from the flood waters, fire, forcing additional evacuations around a chemical plant in crosby, texas. that blaze is out now and so far authorities say the air is clear. in port arthur, firefighters set out by fan boat. this city employee along with his wife and daughter using a dump truck to rescue residents. >> there's nothing that can dpar to what's going on now.
>> reporter: in many areas, the water won't peak for a few days. >> we are with you today. we will be with you tomorrow and every day. >>reporter: vice president mike pence touring the devastation in texas. announcing president trump is donating $1 million of his own money to disaster relief. and he called on other americans to help too. >> the city of houston is open for business and quite frankly, we open for business right now. >>reporter: with clear skies, today texas is cleaning up. many returning home, but what's left of their lives now is murky as the waist-deep water. where the flood and mud have receded, the misery is revealed, lawns littered with the water logged remains of people's lives. >> it's overwhelming to me and i'm so grateful here and all alive. >> reporter: like this woman, we were with her this week when air
lifted to safety. >> please, some go get my mama. >>reporter: thursday, they did. >> i thought i was going to die. i really thought i was going to drown. >>reporter: harvey has taken so much but so many are grateful for what they still have. when the flood water es recede here first responders will begin going door to door. that's when they fear the number of dead could rise. all right. thank you. >> as we mentioned, what's left of harvey is now leading to some new flooding in other parts of the south. there's actually believe it not, a new threat in the trop ticks. what are we looking for? >> let's get to you will a of it. the heaviest of the rain now moving through kentucky. so starting to dry things out back through tennessee. we do have flash flood warnings in effect right in and around bowling green, kentucky, those last through tonight.
nashville watches will expire this afternoon. we could see some isolated tornados and stronger storms through the carolinas, even through parts of eastern kentucky. additional 3 to 5 inches of rain on top of the rain already fallen. here is hurricane irma, category 3. it is still more than 3,000 miles off the coast of miami. we are looking at this storm into next week yenlds and do not know the effects it will have in any on the united states. it is forecast to eventually strengthen into a category 4. the if we have this weak ridge of high pressure, we could start to see this take a turn possibly affecting the mid atlantic. if this is a stronger hinge of high pressure, we could see it steered a little that are they are to the south. again there are so many question marks because this is not a forecast until next weekend.
so a lot will change, but it's certainly worth watching. >> the last thing anyone wants to see on a map. of course harvey's impact is still being felt nationwide with many refineries off line and a major pipeline that supplies the east coast down. gas prices are on the rise and as we head into the holiday weekend. hi tom. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the national average is right about that, right about $2.52 a gallon up .16 cents in just a week. for the first time in five years the national government is releasing the strategic petroleum reserve. expefr ditting delivers across states. a quarter off line, gas prices are rising just in time for the holiday weekend. just in time for the labor day
weekend higher prices could be coming to a gas station near you. after the colonial pipeline announced it has tem temporarily shut down. the situation is so bad right now that even once things do start moving, we're still talking about possible shortages for the next week or two. and a gas price impact that will probably last over a month. >>reporter: that 5500 mile pipeline normally carries more than 3 million barrels of gasoline and jet fuel every day from houston to the southeast, mid atlantic and new jersey. but harvey's massive flooding in texas and louisiana has knocked 13 major refineries in the gulf coast off line. half of the 26 are between hard hit houston and lake charles, louisiana. a quarter of the nation's refining capacity is now shut down. colonial pipeline says service should return on sunday.
but for the gas to start flowing again, the port of houston needs to be open allowing ships to bring oil to those refineries. already people lining up for gas in dallas with some stations running out. >> pulled into the parking lot at 12:00 noon and every five feet maybe an hour and a half. now that i've got up here for the pumps they're saying they're out of gas. i went to six other spots before here and they're out. >>reporter: where are the pumps are open the prices have soared. in the northeast the price of the pipe could jump .15 to 35 cents a gallon. in the midwest 10 to 25 cents and the national average could spike another 15 to 25 cents. but as americans prepare for a labor day getaway, it's not just prices at the pump. >> the colonial pipeline supplies major airports like baltimore and atlanta. if we see jet fuel supplies
interrupted, that could have an impact not just for travelers on the road but for travelers in the air as well. the. >> reporter: so that's going to be the thing to watch. will your ticket prices at some point be affected by in? one more note. gas buddy.com has an app. critical if you're in the gulf and also where is the cheapest gas. all of that on the gas buddy.com tracker. >> that's a good tip. thank you. much more to get to this morning including new outrage being aimed at one of the countries largest banks. wells fargo now saying its bogus at scandal even bigger. hard to ev ploo. >>reporter: hard to belief. the it has been almost a year since we learned thousands of employees created fake accounts in customer's names would ut the permission. a scandal now growing in both scope and size. another banking bombshell in a

standing by the bank but admits there are problems still being a i dressed. >> there's never just one cockroach in the kitchen. there were things done very wrong there, but they are being corrected. >> in a statement to nbc news, wells fargo's ceo apologized to customers who were defrauded and promised to rebuild trust and make things right for our customers. small comfort to customers like frank, a business owner who still has not received refunds for more than $10,000 in charges he says he unknowingly paid to unauthorized accounts that were opened in his name. >> i hope they really do what they say they will do this time because they've said this three or four times before. >> the latest at mission from wells fargo, a validation not only for customers, but the consumer financial protection bureau, whose budget is on the chopping block under president trump. >> people can argue over how much regulation there should be, whether more or less. no one should argue over the existing regulations being
enforced. >> and that's why we need regulation on these banks. this is a big deal. your money, your bank. >> its ejust incredible. there would be people watching right now a don't even know there was a wells fargo account opened in their name. what do you do if you're worried about that? >> well, at this point if you listen to the ceo they will notify you. the issue is trust. and wlrp not $185 until is a lot of money to the bank or not, losing the trust of the american people, you need to trust your bank. >> it's bad head line. >> good to see you. thank you. also, this morning the tragic death of a fraternity pledge at penn state university back in the spot light with the judge set to rule today on whether the case against his fra fernity brothers can move forward. the 19-year-old died in february after a night of drinking and hazing at a fraternity. he became so intoxicated he fell down several times including a
flight of stairs and though bruised and at times unresponsive, prosecutors say nobody called 911 until almost 12 hours later. the fraternity brothers face charges inle voluntary manslaughter. >> homeland security took a major step toward building a border wall long promised by president. they annoyance the accorded contracts to four companies that will build different prototypes, although funding for the wall remains in question, the prototypes are estimated to cost nearly $4 million and will be built in sand diego. final selection of design will take place after review. >> a fight over back to school supplies at a michigan walmart ended when one of the women pulled out a gun. they got into a shoving match over the last notebook on the shechl. witnesses say when two of the brawlers pulled a 20-year-old woman's hair, that woman's mother pulled a gun out of her purse and point today at the
group. turns out the woman does have a concealed pistol license. police are now looking agent that video and deciding whether anyone should face charges. meanwhile police in england searching for a man who set off a large box of fireworks in a pizza shop. the incident was caught on surveillance camera. you see the man throw at the fireworks in the restaurant closes the door and runs away. the box explodes sending those fireworks bouncing off the ceiling and walls. of surprisingly no one was hurt but there was damage to the shop. who does that? >>. why? i don't know. what's shaking in the weather? we have a lot going on with harvey still dealing with flooding range back through kentucky now. also looking at the chance of isolated severe storms through the carolinas on the eastern side. something to keep an eye out for as we go through the day. in the northeast it feels like september. temperatures in the 60s and 70

>> looking forward to getting out there in a couple of minutes. seven days ago we were talking about harvey's impending land fall. >> can you believe we're still talking about it and now it's looking to be one of the most dangerous and deadly storms in this country's history. new threats to public health and safety. surfacing as southeast texas struggles to recover from the hurricane. miguel is in port arthur for us. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is what many people are waking up to. floodwaters all around the neighborhood and seeping into homes. we now know at least 100,000 homes have been affected by the storm. death toll stands nearly at 40. officials fear that number will rise as they continue to go door to door looking for those who have been left behind. those search and rescue missions have been continuing for several days. we know they are going on today. both by air and by boat. it is a devastating scene across this region as many more seek shelter. some of those evacuees are actually being taken further out
to outlying communities where they have room. we know cities like houston, many are returning home for the very first time as the floodwaters recedes. revealing heart breaking damage. we know in the end, the damage not only to homes and infrastructures will be in the billions and as you mentioned, this storm is still moving on, but the damage here is still mounting, savannah? >> miguel, thank you. the storm's impact on oil refineries and gasoline supplies is now showing up at the pump. tom costello joins us with what holiday weekend travelers can expect. >> reporter: good morning. the national average right now, national average as luck would have it is exactly that where we are in red. $2.52 a gallon. up 16 cents in just a week or so. we have a big problem, a quarter of the nation's refineries, 25% right now offline. those are in the gulf of mexico. a massive pipeline that runs from the gulf of mexico up to new jersey carrying more than 3
million barrels of oil and jet fuel and diesel, that is going to be shutdown until at least sunday. as a result of that, the white house tapping the strategic petroleum reserve. million barrels of oil that will flow into the system. however, we've got an awful lot of gas stations along the coast that don't have any gas at the pumps. where there is gas, pump prices are jumping. national average expected to jump anywhere between 15-35 cents a gallon depending where you are in the country. we're going to see this play out over the next couple of days, maybe a week or more. the question is how long will it take for all of that oil refining capacity to get back online. this is the labor day weekend, we're going to see a lot of americans hitting the roads, pump prices are already on the increase. guys, back to you. >> tom costello for us this morning. thank you. the georgia police officer who was caught on dash cam video telling a passenger that, quote, we only kill black people is

from drug overdoses last year. that number of course driven by the surge in opioid abuse. nbc medical contributor is here. there's news this morning about a new effort to actually ban some of those opioids. who is asking for that ban? is it likely to succeed. >> this is something called a citizen petition. almost anybody can file to the fda. this one specifically is made up of victim's families as well as doctors and public health organizations. they have petitioned the fda to reanalyze the availability of what we call high dose formulations of opioids. >> what drugs would those be. >> something like oxy cotton, oxycontin 30 milligram tablets. anything in a typical prescribing fashion would exceed 90 milligrams of morphine a day. the cap that the cdc has allowed sort of in routine practice. >> why these particular drugs.
>> well, okay, so let's do the statistics will talk for themselves. in 2015, almost half of all open owed ov opioid overdoses were from prescription drugs. they have more than quadrupled. >> they're not talking about banning all opiates. >> absolutely. there's two really important points here. opioids will be available and, certainly, appropriate for a subset of patients who have life limiting or terminal illness, palliative care such as cancer. another thing to think about too is what feeds addiction is not just the dose. a statement from the american academy of pain medicine says okay to reduce the dose, there are other things such as depression and anxiety and other things that feed into addiction. so just reducing the dose alone is not going to eliminate the
problem. >> do you get the sense this is going to be a successful effort. >> i think so. i'm going to be optimistic about this. i'm going to use this as an example. in july fda recommended all removal of a drug of an opioid, we assumed it was not tamperable, but people were able to andinjectable. i think the fda is on board with analyzing the risk of narcotic from a public health crisis point of view. i'm going to be optimistic. they have 180 days to respond to this petition. >> that's interesting. thank you for the information. history made on a high school football field in florida last night. check this out, a junior name. she threw for a touchdown on the very first pass of her high school football career. there it is right there. on air plays for hollywood hills high school. north of miami.
