7:02 am
>> we'll begin withic braing news in the north korean crisis after the regime's sixth and largest nuclear test. >> south korea carried out a simulated attack on north korea's nuclear test site and its military says it believes the north is readying another ballistic missile launch. >> following an emergency meeting at the white house, defense secretary james mattis is warning north korea could face a massive military response if the u.s. and its allies are threatened. >> this morning the u.n. security council is holding an emergency meeting of its own to talk about the situation. we have complete coverage this morning starting with nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel. he is in seoul. richard, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we've seanez clagz after escalation with north korea carrying out missile tests and the u.s. responding with a show of force, flying aircraft over the korean peninsula. nuclear test from north korea and it does not seem like it is
7:03 am
over yet. officials here in south korea are seeing indications that north korea is preparing for yet another missile test which could happen quite soon. >> the u.s. ally south korea today responded to the biggest-ever nuclear test with a show of force, firing missiles in a rehearsal of an attack on north korea's nuclear facility, but all eyes now are on president trump to see if he will respond with an american show of force or more. so far, giving no hints. >> mr. president, will you attack north korea? >> we'll see. >> reporter: president trump last month spelled out how far the u.s. would go. >> they will be met with fire and fury. >> reporter: defense secretary mattis now isn't going that far, but almost. >> we are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely, north korea, but as i
7:04 am
said, we have many options to do so. >> reporter: on sunday, north korea's state media announced kim jong-un successfully oversaw the detonation of a two-stage thermonuclear bomb, a peanut-shaped city buster, many times more powerful than the bombs the u.s. dropped on hiroshima and nagasaki during world war ii. in a series of tweets president trump condemned the test and said he's considering one possible response, cutting off trade to all nations with economic ties to north korea, but that would include china with devastating economic effects for both countries. mattis warned north korea, if it follows its latest test with threatening actions, the u.s. would not hesitate. >> any threat to the united states or its territories including guam or our allies will be met with a massive military response, and a response both effective and
7:05 am
overwhelming. sunday's was the sixth nuclear test from north korea, but the u.s. is taking this one far more seriously for a simple reason. north korea claims its latest bomb is small enough to fit on an intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach the united states. >> u.s. intelience is still analyzing the latest nuclear test, but initial indications are that the bomb was what north korea says it was and north korea's missile technology has been getting more sophisticated and more reliable and its ranges have been getting longer with each one of these tests. >> richard engel for us in seoul, south korea, thank you. let's bring in jeremy bash. jeremy, good morning. >> good morning, guys. 13th ballistic missile tests this year. this is the first nuclear test since last september, i believe, as someone who has been at the pentagon and someone who has been at the cia, how does this change the situation?
7:06 am
>> that is significant because we were looking to see if north korea could do three things and one is the intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach the united states. they did that twice in july and second, they would conduct the sixth underground nuclear test and third, whether they could claim that they have minh charrized the nuclear device and we have not verified that claim, but if they can do that, that is a significant escalation. >> i want to ask you about secretary of defense mattis. he said on sunday that any threat, not just an attack to the u.s. or its allies will be met with a massive military response and what constitutes a threat. if you're sitting in pyongyang, where is the red line? >> in effect, what the pentagon has done is remember the old line in the sand? they've now drawn a line in the ocean. they have said if any missile threatens our territory in guam, hawaii or the west coast of the united states we will act. there are two options and one is to watch the launch and shoot them down with the missile defenses. that's risky because it puts
7:07 am
faith in the own missile defense systems and the other option would be to strike any icbm that we see being stacked on a launchpad. south korea said last night they believe a launch could happen on september 9th, five days from now. that could be a potential window for military action by the united states. >> jeremy, president trump has repeatedly urged china to do more to restrain north korea. we don't even know if president xi jinping has met kim jong-un. have we overstated china's ability or willingness to do more with regard to north korea? >> our operating thesis has been that china, and to the extent north korea would bow to the wishes of china. at this point i'm not sure we have many other options other than to ask the other countries for maximum pressure on north korea. >> thank you. >> another major story out of the white house. president trump reaching a decision on a controversial
7:08 am
immigration issue. he's expected to end the so-called daca program that shields young undocumented immigrants from deportation, but it won't happen right away. nbc's white house correspondent krist kristin welker has more on that. >> reporter: good morning, the white house is bracing for a fierce fight with all signs pointing to the president likely ending daca unless congress can come up with an the nat solution in six months. the president will cast it as it a campaign promise kept to get tough or immigration. this morning president trump on the verge of a potential political firestorm over immigration with multiple reports saying mr. trump is expected to announce tomorrow he'll end the obama-era program known as daca unless congress can come up with a fix in the next six months. the program protects so-called dreamers, more than 780,000 young immigrants brought here illegally by their parents being brought here to attend school. nine states threatening to sue the administration unless mr.
7:09 am
trump scraps daca by tomorrow. overnight the senate's top democrat blasting the president claiming potus ought to re-think before he does huge damage to them and the economy. asked about the dreamers' fate. >> should dreamers be worried? >> we love the dreamers. we love everybody. >> i will immediately terminate president obama's illegal executive order on immigration immediately. >> reporter: bringing the issue into fresh focus, hurricane harvey. texas is home to one of the largest daca populations in the country including houston paramedic jesus contreras brought here illegally by his mother when he was 6, now on the front lines of the harv recovery effort. >> we're literally on the ground helping people get back up and we're getting our butts handed to us by
7:10 am
>> reporter: the move comes after members of the president's own party urged him not to scrap daca. house speaker paul ryan insisting the decision should be up to congress. >> i think the president, as well, as mentioned that he wants to have a humane solution to this problem. and that's something we in congress are working on and need to deliver upon. and while white house officials caution no decision is final until it's officially announced, last week, hundreds petitioned mr. trump to reconsider. writing, dreamers are vital to the future of our country and our economy. one advocacy group already calling the move child abuse under the guise of public policy. and the president's base is far from pacified. one top conservative saying mr. trump is trying to have it both ways and that could spark a fight of huge proportions. >> there's much more to get to this morning, including evacuations in houston. more than a week after hurricane harvey first roared ashore, that
7:11 am
region dealing with more flooding problems, which are hampering the cleanup and recovery efforts now. nbc's gabe gutierrez is still on duty for us there in houston. gabe, good morning. >> craig, good morning. harvey's confirmed death toll now stands at least 43. yes, the water is receding in most places, but there is stoil so much of it left. this is beltway eight, a major freeway on the west side of houston. it is still shut down with at least 10 feet of standing water. there are now mandatory evacuations underway for thousands of families. and the west side of houston, this in the nation's fourth largest city. across southeast texas, this morning, the damage is extensive. we rode along with the texas army national guard, now shifting from rescues to recovery. ten days after harvey's landfall, rivers are still swollen throughout the region. though the floodwaters are receding, there is now a critical need for drinking water, tons of it now being
7:12 am
delivered by air. >> the need is pretty critical right now. food, water, basic necessities. that's what they're needing. >> reporter: in cities like beaumont and port arthur, the lines for supplies stretched for blocks. >> there we go, sir. >> cold water! >> reporter: but in west houston, a new nightmare. the mayor ordering more mandatory evacuations over the weekend. 4,600 homes could now be underwater for another week. >> every day that we have water in there is another day that our house decays and our belong conclusion ings decay and we can't get in there and get them. >> reporter: virginia johnson thought the worst of harvey had passed, but then the army corps of engineers started releasing more water from overflowing rerz voirs. >> we don't know when we can get back in. >> reporter: northeast of houston, the owner of this flooded power plant ignited the rest of the containers filled with materials. across the region, recovery won't come quickly. more than 75 public schools are damaged. 22 of them in houston will be
7:13 am
closed for months, meaning 12,000 students sent elsewhere this fall. as thousands of families scramble to protect their belongings from harvey's relentless aftermath. >> it broke my heart in half, because my wife is due in october. i'm fixing to have my first baby and i had just finished the baby's room. and then, you know, crushed my heart when i had to take everything back apart. >> reporter: although this major freeway remains shut down, houston's mayor insists the city is open for business. texas governor greg abbott says that recovery costs from harvey could top $180 billion. and that is more than hurricane katrina and superstorm sandy. craig and sheinelle? >> greg, thank you. we are also keeping a very close eye on some new trouble in the tropics. this is hurricane irma. she's gaining strength as she pushes west, posing a potential threat to the caribbean and the united states. dylan's in for al this morning. >> there is a lot to get to with irma. i just want to point out that it is still very far away from the u.s. so a lot of the forecast is going to change. but let's break down what we
7:14 am
know right now. here is the storm with a very defined eye. it is a category 3 hurricane at this time. a major hurricane, with winds up to 115 miles per hour. it is already looking like we have hurricane watches in effect for angillis, st. kitts, parts of bermuda. we are looking at this continue to move to the west and past just north of puerto rico, strengthening to a category 4 hurricane with winds up to 140 miles per hour. this is the part of the forecast, though, where there's lot of consideration because whether it goes north or south all depends on this area of high pressure. this is going to be the steering current. you can see because of this huge high, the storm itself is being pushed farther to the south. now how far to the south it gets pushed side still the big question. i want to point out that parts of the southeastern united states, most of florida, even including the western side of florida, you want to make your plans now. hopefully you don't have to use them, but you want to make your plans just in case the storm
7:15 am
continues on this trend because it's a very powerful storm. there are a lot of question marcos that part of the forecast, but if you have a plan in place you can enact it as soon as you need to and hopefully you don't have to. >> the national weather service said it would be more than the hurricane season. >> and we're in the peak of hurricane season which is obvious. now to the wildfires burning out west. a brief down pour and cooler temperatures provideded a much-needed relief for crews battling a record-setting fire. the la tuna fire has burned more than 7,000 acres and all mandatory evacuations have now been lifted. meantime, in montana the lolo peak fire have burned acres. firefighters are clearing the brush and beiknocking down treeo limit the fire. in oregon, the hikers forced to the spend the night between two wildfires are safe back at home this morning. officials had ordered them to stay put saturday night until firefighters could clear a safe
7:16 am
path out. six people were hurt sunday when an suv plowed into a new york city laundromat, and it was all caught on camera. take a look here, the vehicle actually going in reverse and it breaks through the glass and going pretty fast and it traveled to the back of the laundromat. police say it looks like an accident and the 74-year-old driver likely hit the gas instead of the brake and he has not been charged. three people were seriously hurt and three others suffered minor injuries in the crash. now to the dramatic rescue of a toddler who was trapped in a well. the little boy was with his grandparents when he wandered off and fell into a well in northwest china. he was stuck 40 feet down. rescuers dropped into the hole, and after ten hours the boy was pulled to safety and he was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was reported to be in good condition. >> dylan is here with the national forecast. >> yes. we are going to see a chance of stronger storms today in and around the great lakes as the

7:32 am
overabundance -- >> a joke! >> it doesn't get any better. he can't repeat that. >> well done, sir. >> we'll get to that, but let's start with the video we first brought you last week that's sparking outrage nationwide. it shows the violent arrest of a utah nurse who says she was just following rules when she refused to let officers draw blood from an unconscious crash victim. we will talk to that nurse live in just a moment, but first, the latest on the incident that brought her here. >> we're done. you are under arrest. >> it was a violent confrontation. >> somebody help me! >> hospital surveillance and police body camera videos which may have been edited, show a salt lake city police officer arresting a nurse in july. alex wubbels says detective jeff payne demanded a blood sample from her unconscious patient. a truck driver involved in a fiery crash with a car that was
7:33 am
fleeing police. >> this is something that you guys agreed to with this hospital. >> wubbels objects citing hospital policy that a patient's blood cannot be drawn unless he or she gives consent has a warrant out for her arrest. wubbels says she was detained for about 20 minutes and released uncharged. detective payne says he arrested wubbels for interfering with an investigation writing in a police report he needed the blood samples so that it could be determined if the patient had any chemical substances in his system at the time of the crash. >> i was alarmed by what i saw. >> the salt lake city police department has placed payne and another officer on paid administrative leave pending a criminal investigation. >> you're hurting me! >> then walk! >> telling nbc news it is so sad that we've had this rift in our relationship with the medical community and we're working hard to fix that. >> we should mention we reached
7:34 am
out to detective payne for comment, but he did not respond. al alex wubbels is here along with her attorney. let me start with you, alex. the detective and another officer are on paid administrative leave right now. is that enough for you? >> um, i can't say that. i'm not chief payne -- i'm not even chief brown, but i'm not here to police the police. the police need to do that if they're goinging to regain any kind of trust by me or, i think, the public. >> when we listen to it, sometimes it's hard to watch. there was one point when you were saying i've done nothing wrong. this is crazy. so many people frankly agree with you. thousands, there is a petition with hundreds of thousands of signatures and support. what is your reaction been to the outpouring of support that you received? >> at first it was maybe
7:35 am
overwhelming is an understatement and the gratitude i have for the support by my colleagues as nurses around the country and around the world and just health care providers in general has been amazing, and just society. i think this resonates with people all over and that's a really unfortunate problem that we have that we have to fix and i strongly believe that with effective communication and better dialogue between our two agencies that we can potentially make this better. >> if the video had not been made public, do you think that anyone would have been held accountable? >> that's hard to say. you know, i can't predict that, but i released it because i felt very strongly that there needed to be accountability. >> this happened back on july 26th. why just release the vid why last week? >> well, it took me a while to understand that i was in a traumatic experience, and i needed that time to sort of give my emotions a chance to rest, if you will, so that i could come out and be pragmatic and be
7:36 am
effective in my communication. i also feel pretty strongly that the conversations i've had with the salt lake city department initially actually were progressive. they -- they wanted to walk down a path of positive change, but i did not have that same response from the university police and the university security, and so it was a little bit of a trigger to say, all right, this is what you need to see. if you're not willing to see it i'll show it to you. >> the sound of the scream was just so genuine. how has this impacted you personally and your family? >> my husband and my son are the best. i come home to them and my world changes and everything sort of dissipates and goes away, but i feel a sense of urgency for this conversation. we need to make this better. this can't be happening. it should never have happened, and if i have anything to say about it it won't happen again. >> that detective seemed intent
7:37 am
to getting that sample no matter what. why do we think -- or do we know? >> i have no idea. i personally didn't think there was any sense of urgency. i would have liked for a chance for him to sort of talk with one of his superiors prior to doing what he did to me. i don't know what his problem was, if you will. >> cara, what do you hope that people learn from all of this? >> a couple of things. one of the reasons that alex released this video was because most people that this happens to don't have this kind of evidence and so i -- i'm hoping that this helps people out there understand that this kind of thing does happen and can happen to anyone. >> are we planning a civil lawsuit? >> you know, it's not off the table, but alex has been very clear that her first priority was to try to get change to
7:38 am
policies and procedures, and things like that. so that's what we have focused on at this stage. >> what about you, for you, what do you want to come out of all of this? >> nothing by any means has been off the table and i have never once said that it was off the table, but if we in this country, and if i'm going to have effective communication, i feel really strongly thatio you have to come to the table with a sense of openness and honesty, and i would hope the same from the other side. >> all right. alex wubbels, thanks to both of you. >> thank you. >> let's go over to dylan now for another check of the weather. >> good morning, guys. we are going to see the chance of stronger storms today especially back through the great lakes. there is a cold front moving through and fairly clear right now despite spotty showers and we do have a risk especially through northern indiana and into parts of northwestern ohio and central illinois. that's where we could see large hail, damaging winds and isolating tornado that's possible and it's more the

damaging wind gusts as the storm develops this afternoon and this cold front is moving eastward and it will bring rain to the east coast, as well and on tuesday we'll see the cold front set up along the eastern seaboard and that will bring heavy pockets of rain from new england and out west it is all about the heat and we sti and with all of the wildfires happening throughout the area we're still expecting to keep that air quality unhealthy for today. look at these hazy, smoky skies over mt. hamilton now. we're not exing that to get better today. we do have a nice cooldown on the way, already under way right now. temperatures in the 70s san jose. in the 60s and that temperature change of the last 24 hours a drop of about 12 degrees for san jose. you can find your full forecast any time on the weather
