relentless. the rain has been off and on all morning. the winds are reaching up to 60 miles per hour. this is as thousands of flights have been canceled or delayed all across the country. now more than a million people are waking up without power. a powerful storm. churning up the east coast. heavy rain battering new york and new jersey. and winds whipping up waves in connecticut. now, massachusetts in the crosshairs. the first signs of damage. heavy winds taking down trees, as first responders brace for battle. >> we call it our storm fighter. >> reporter: firefighters on new york's long island, preparing high-water rescue vehicles to reach any stranded residents. if you find people who need rescuing. >> we bring them on. >> reporter: the fear, a so-called perfect storm. a convergence of weather events creating dangerous conditions. 10 million people currently

sandy. but also bearing repeating. when we first talked to you early this morning on the east coast, the conditions were not like what you're seeing right now. yesterday, i was in long island. there, you leader a lot of people talk about superstorm sandy. almost every single person i spoke to said this is not quite to the level of sandy. still something we're thinking about. there are still people recovering. as you mentioned here on the cape, these conditions have been fairly inconsistent. 3:00 a.m. this morning, battering us with rain. now, battering us with wind. it appears the wind is more of the primary. the biggest threat for a lot of first responders who are trying to assess the conditions here on the coast. >> morgan, thank you very much. boy, did it rain here. >> it did. >> i got a leak in the skylight. always good time. but it's not about me. it's about you.g us.
and we do in fact -- we're going to be looking at the flash flood warnings. watch watches. the live radar shows heavy activity in northern and central new england. the winds are strong. at the coast. cape cod, the islands, gusts of 50 to 60-mile-per-hour gusts. the coastal storm will cause high surf, coastal flood risks. rough surf. large swells. beach erosion will be a big problem. and the rain. it will be tapering off. some areas could pick up another one to two inches of heavy rain with the system. that pushes off quickly. behind it, much colder air. frost and freeze warnings coming up next half hour. >> nothing but good news. >> that's me. mr. smiles. first, growing controversy tied to hurricane recovery
efforts in puerto rico. amid concerns of a possible sweetheart deal, officials say they'll cancel a $300 million contract with a very small montana-based company to rebuild that island power grid. gabe gutierrez is in san juan for us. he spoke with the company's ceo. gabe, what can you tell us? >> reporter: matt, good morning. the governor said this became a distraction. now officials are rushing to choose other companies to fill in. they say scrapping this contract could delay power restoration efforts by 10 to 12 weeks. this morning, hurricane ravaged puerto rico is pulling the plug on a contract to rebuild. dl there's a protection risk. a delay risk. a reputation at risk in continuing the contract. >> reporter: a small montana company answering questions about how it scored the deal.
>> i think there's people out there on a witch hunt. >> and did i, the ceo of whitefish energy tells nbc news he first contracted the puerto rico electric authority after hurricane -- >> he strongly denies ryan zinke, also from whitefish, montana, or anyone else in the trump administration helped him land the deal. fema said it has significant concerns about the cost and never revealed the contracts. >> it's corruption. somebody greased the wheels. they did it nicely. >> reporter: whitefish says it's disappointed in the decision which will only delay what the people of puerto rico want and deserve. >> show me another contractor that's here, that has the presence that we do.
has a positive impact. that's reenergizing the power lines. >> reporter: the ceo disputes the reports of 2 employees when maria made landfall. puerto rico has already paid whitefish more than $10 million. 40 days after hurricane maria, about 70% of this island is still without power. >> gabe, thank you very much. a new accusation rocking hollywood. kevin spacey is apologizing this morning after another actor accused him of making a sexual advance on him decades ago. the accuser said he was just 14 years old at the time. kate snow is with us now. >> anthony rapp is best known for his role in the broadway and movie versions of "rent." the actor said he felt compelled to tell his story now, after so many women came forward with accusations against harvey
weinstein. one of hollywood's best-known actors, kevin spacey, the latest high-profile star caught up in allegations. anthony rapp accusing spacey of making a sexual advance at a party 30 years ago when he was 14, and spacey was 26. overnight, spacey, a two-time oscar-winner, released a statement. that read in part -- s. rapp says he invispacey invited a party. he picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. then, he lays on top of me.
rapp is currently in the cast of the tv show, "star trek: discovery." spacey, who has been oscars said rapp's story encouraged me to address other things about my life. continuing in his statement, spacey added, as those closest to me know, in my life, i've had relationships with both men and women. i choose now to live as a gay man. i want to examine this honestly and openly. that drew criticism, saying that spacey's apology should not have been tied to a revelation of his sexual orientation. rapp says, i came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men, who are speaking out. it comes as more women are revealing shocking, new allegations against harvey weinstein. annebelabella score ra breaking
silence. she said that weinstein dropped her off at home. and then, she heard a knock. and said that harvey weinstein barged in and raped her. she said, he got on top of me, i kicked and i yelled. weinstein's spokesperson have said, any allegations of nonconsensual sex are unequivocally denied. a new twist to rose mcgowan's story. mcgowan settled with weinstein in 1997. her attorney said, someone offered her hush money, $1 million in exchange to sign a nondisclosure agreement, just this september, right before "the times" dropped its report. >> i have been silenced for 20 years. and i'm just like you. >> reporter: in an nbc news/"wall street journal" survey, just out this morning. nearly half of currently american women, 48%, say they
have personally experienced an unwelcome sexual advance or verbal harassment at work. and we talk about the #metoo phenomen phenomenon. 44% said they are encouraged to speak out. we have an exclusive live enter view with cory fieldman, who claims that accusations like these are just the tip of the iceberg in hollywood. let's turn back to what many people are talking about at the top of the show. many are saying game five of the world series is the wildest, craziest game ever played. it didn't end until 1:30 a.m. on the east coast. astr astros' second baseman, jose altuve, tied the game up with a three-run blast over the wall. to the ninth inning. houston ahead by three. no lead is safe in this game. the dodgers' right fielder,
yasiel puig, hits a two-run shot to left field. they tie it up, just a couple of batters later. the game goes into extra innings. bottom of the tenth now. two runners on. alex bregman drives to left field. alex fisher comes around to score. astros win it, 13-12. houston leads the series, 3-2 games. game six tomorrow night, back in los angeles. you watched some of that. >> i stayed through the fortyur inning. i should have stayed longer. >> it's incredible. i need coffee. you stayed up and watched it. >> did you stay up long enough to watch this? there was a funny moment in the ninth inning, after yasiel puig's home run. a female astros fan, ends up with the ball. the guy, two seats over, gets the ball and throws it back on the field.
a practice you see when home runs are hit in your stadium. usually you want to hang on to that. this guy just snatched it and threw it back. can we all just get along? >> miyikes. we need your halloween forecast. have you done that? >> not yet. let's first give you a look at what's happening today. gusty winds throughout new england. a chilly start down to the gulf coast. looking at ♪ for the ones who don't quite know where... ♪ but they just have to go... ♪ there's the compass. ♪ alex and ani what's your symbol right now?

francia. that francia had too much going on to even think about it. >> you insisted? >> i said, give me the information. i want to do this. >> reporter: how did you feel at that moment? >> she lived with me in an interesting time when my kidneys were just done. it was -- that was it. i didn't want to ask a single person in my life. the thought of asking somebody to do that was really difficult for me. she volunteered and did it. let alone somebody wanting to volunteer, it is incredibly difficult to find a match. the fact that she was a match, i mean, that's unbelievable. that's not real. >> reporter: francia immediately began the process of having her blood and urine tested. she completed a physical and psychological evaluation. >> with our situation because we were kind of an emergency situation, i did everything in, like, a day. usually the process takes six months. so it was really fast. >> reporter: it becomes surgery day. tell me about how you were feeling and what happened.
>> i wanted us to feel good. our friend came over and did cute little french braids for us. >> and we couldn't eat after midnight. we stuffed our faces. >> i think i ordered -- >> way too much food, yeah. i had to go in first. when i woke up, i was really calm. >> reporter: did you fear for your own health? >> yeah, i did. i had to write a will, which is scary. because there's no guarantee you wake up. >> and your family wasn't sure. when you told your mom, she was like, what are you doing? >> my mom didn't want to be there until i woke up. she loves selena. and so she was torn. >> reporter: before she was wheeled in, francia asked to see her friend. >> she came in and held my hand. and said, are you good? i said, yeah. we're doing this. and then, um, they give you valium to calm you down. i don't remember anything else. >> you did a little peace sign first. and then, you went out. >> reporter: selena went into energy next. >> i remember waking up two hours after. and i saw my mom.
i saw my stepdad. and i felt okay. i felt really good. i got to see you and tell you i love you. and then, i went back to my room. and i started to attempt to fall asleep. and in the middle of that process, i started hyperventilating. and there was so much pain there. >> reporter: doctors told selena she would have to go back into surgery. her new kidney was turning around inside her body. >> my teeth were -- i was like grinding. i was freaking out. it was a six-hour surgery they had to do on me. the normal kidney process is two hours. apparently one of the arteries had flipped. i'm very thankful that there are people that know what to do in that situation. >> reporter: what has recovery been like? >> what i wanted more than anything was for us to be together. i got a space for us to be together. you're on bedrest. you're allowed to walk an hour a day. you can't do any stairs or anything crazy. >> it was hard because you constantly needed to ask for
help. i think one of the most humbling experience was needing help to put on underwear. we couldn't take showers. by ourselves. i mean, it was a really brutal process. >> reporter: selena and francia says it's their faith that guided them through this very emotional and private process. you feel that francia saved your life. >> because she did. that's -- that's it. i guess i got to the point where it was -- it was really kind of life or death. it's really hard to think about or even to swallow, especially now that, as soon as i got the kidney transplant, the arthritis went away. my lup urk s, there's about a 3% to a 5% chance it will ever come back. my blood pressure is better. my energy, my life has been better. >> reporter: a life-saving journey shared with the hope of helping others. >> i really hope that we can help somebody.
i really do. i don't think what we went through is easy. i don't think it was fun. i just, i hope this inspires people to feel good to know there is really good people in the world. >> oh, my god. >> it's incredible to see these two and the relationship they have. it feels like a sisterhood. i was just blown away to hear them talk. they're very private. i think they feel like they don't really want to talk about this again. >> i don't know what the odds are to find a match in the general population. but to have that person living as your roommate? >> living right under your roof. they are women of faith. and they don't think it's any accident. selena had her whole family tested. nobody's a match. she didn't tell francia what was happening until that moment, you know? and she blurted it out. and then, of course, francia said, i'll be tested. and lo and behold, she's a match. and there they go. it's an incredible story of friendship. and the reason they're telling it is they want to raise
awareness. >> i love when you asked the question about saving your life. and she said, because she did. >> she kind of put me in my place. like, i don't want to say it. that's what happened. >> i thought, wow. >> you hear that phrase all the time. but this is for real. >> and selena was really open about other things and how she dealt with her sickness. we think about this big star and what she was going through privately. she's a very honest and candid person. we have a lot more to show tomorrow. >> that's fabulous. savannah, thank you very much. mr. roker, a check of the weather? >> a chilly start for a lot of folks. in fact, about 33 million of us dealing with a frigid start. freeze warnings. frost advisories. a killing freeze for plants and crops from florida all the way to ohio. look at the temperatures. louisville, 36. knoxville, 30. atlanta, just one degree above freezing. charlotte at 31. and a good portion of the country seeing below-average temperatures. bismarck, 15 degrees below average. denver, you're going to be only 35. chicago, 49. seven degrees below average.

>> i propose to do this by making a film that will be the most honest and true depiction of child abuse ever portrayed by telling my own story in a very real way. >> we're fighters for truth, justice, and the american way. >> reporter: a 1980's teenage heartthrob he became best known in his roles for "the goonies," "the lost boys" and "stand by me." along with the fame feldman learned firsthand about hollywood's big secret, a secret he tried to reveal without naming names. >> i can tell you that number one problem in hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia and some of the richest and most powerful people in this business and children aren't supposed to handle that sort of stuff. humiliation, i know i've been through it, but that's all over now. >> reporter: feldman has claimed as young actors he and child star cory haim were molested by

harvey weinstein scandal, it continues to unfold. new names come forward every day. now there's names of misconduct with kevin spacey, with this, you know, child actor who came forward today. it's going to continue unraveling. this is just the beginning. it's just the tip of the iceberg. everything you're seeing is building up to what i believe is going to be a dam breaking open. >> let me talk about this cory's truth effort. you want to raise $10 million and produce and direct this documentary. >> it's not a droumtstry. >> it's a film. >>p stop you there. >> a film. i want to make a feature film, why we need the budget that we need. actors, scripts. >> is it going to involve real people and real names of people active in hollywood? >> it will be a very true story. we will have every name that -- everybody that affected my life i'm going to give the perspective that i can give what i viewed what i experienced from a firsthand account. >> in all fairness we've been down this road with you and you promised in the past to name names. >> never. >> in your book when you were
talking about your book you were going to blow the lid off of this. >> this is why i'm doing this. when i wrote my book the publishers prevented me from writing the names down. >> we've been down this road before. we didn't get the names we were promised last time. >> which is why i'm taking the matter into my own hands and why i need america's support and the world's support. i must make a film with no executives, no v.p.s. >> why do you need $10 million? film students make movies for fractions -- >> that's a film student. we're talking about a theatrical release. i'm going to self-distribute, self-market, make the film, and hire a team of attorneys who are going to protect me and the film when everybody comes after me. >> just under $200,000, is is that about right? it's going to take a long time to raise $2 million. you told me this is still prevalent in hollywood. >> yeah. >> every day you wait, every day you try to raise money i would imagine you believe that children are being abused by
pedophiles in hollywood. >> absolutely. >> why are you talking to me? why aren't you sitting down with the police right now? >> i told the police. in fact, if anybody wants to go back to 1993 when i was interviewed by the santa barbara police department i gave them the names. they're on record. they value of this information. but they were scanning michael jackson. all they cared about was trying to find something on michael jackson. >> you said did not abuse me. >> michael was innocent, that's what the interview was about in 1993. i told them he is not that guy and they said maybe you don't understand your friend. i know the difference between pedophiles and somebody who is not a pedophile because i've been molested. here's the names, go investigate. let me push this forward there are thousands of people in hollywood who have the same information. why is it all on me? why is it if i don't release the names in the next two months, six months or a year, i'm the bad guy? i'm the victim here. i'm the one who's been abused. i'm the one trying to come forward and do something about it. >> but go back -- >> mess, i'm sorry. thousands of people out there,
matt, who have this information any one of those child actors that went to the teenage soda pop clubs with me when i was a kid, know who those people are and the people who ran it. anybody can go back through history and look at the teen magazines and say what was the name of that venue they were all promoting and who ran that venue and doernsed it. >> you've said you've had death threats because you have this information. >> yes. >> they have threatened to expose it. another reason to go to police, that's a crime to threaten someone's life. >> i've gone to the police with that as well. >> and what would be wrong with going to the police now again, didn't work out in santa barbara. >> the statute of limitations, matt, in the state of california, which protects people, it's not that way in new york, it's that way only where the movie industry is, conveniently enough in california, that's the seriousness of this. you cannot because if i were to go to the police, i would be the one who's getting sued. hence, i need a team of lawyers and i need a team of security to be around me at all times to keep me safe so i can get this message done.
>> real quickly -- >> i'm not playing around. it's serious stuff. i vow i will release every single name i have any knowledge of. period. and nobody is going to stop me this time. as long as people support this. >> cory feldman, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> appreciate it. >> good to see you. >> we want to head over to al for a check of the weather. thanks so much. as we look at what's going on here in the west, 61 and partly cloudy in seattle. look for a beautiful day in medford, 70. on the cool side in san francisco 57, salt lake, clouds and 61 degrees. phoenix 86 degrees. look how chilly in denver, about 15 to 20 degrees below average with a high today of only 34 degrees. rest of the country that storm system moving out. more than a million people without power in parts of new england. all the way down to washington, d.c. chilly start down through the gulf coast. we're looking at plenty of sunshine but temperatures anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees below average. we're looking for plenty of sunshine also making it ways through the mid plains. mild and sunny in the pacific

after breast cancer. but a lot of women are going with staying plat. >> my name is rebecca. i'm 41 years old. and i'm a breast cancer survivor. my husband and i really wanted to have a child together. and i wanted to keep my other breast in the hopes that i would be able to breast-feed her. >> you actually had reconstructive surgery, right? >> yes. i had the single mastectomy and reconstruction on that side. >> your mom fought breast cancer. an i'm told you made a promise to your mom. what was that promise? >> i promised her that i would do preventative surgeries and remove my other breast. and that was a difficult choice. there wasn't much about what to expect emotionally. and there certainly were not
images of real women. it's really about finding ways of just accepting ourselves and redefining beauty on our own terms. >> i'm shay sharp, i'm 39 years old and a two-time breast cancer survival. you hear you have to be age 40 to get a mammogram. in my mind, i had no reason that i should get it. >> to make the decision to go flat, as it's now called. it's a very personal decision. but probably not an easy one to make. >> not an easy decision. you know, it's not just physical. it's mental, as well. and not everyone can handle that. >> it's made you an advocate. you started your organization. is it pink wishes? >> yes. >> tell me about that.
>> so, we grant final wishes to young women and children who have been diagnosed or affected by terminal breast cancer. and this year, i said, row one, seat one, as her son graduated from high school. there's no way in the world i would have done pink wishes without having cancer. >> i'm 52 years old and i'm a breast cancer survivor. i have to tell my new husband, not only do i have cancer, but we can't have kids. now, you're going to get me to cry. >> years later -- >> yeah. >> you, again, have a symptom. and you find your own lump. this time, it comes back and you have breast cancer. >> yeah.
unfortunately, as soon as i got the expanders taken out and the implants put in, i got an infection. >> at this point, you made a decision, as they are now saying, go flat. it's a very personal decision. >> yes. it was tough. but i really enjoyed having breasts. they were part of my identity. and they were taken away from me. and now this, is the new sexy for me. >> you were able to still have a child. >> thank you, yes. it's been amazing. i'm sorry, i'm crying again. i told him yesterday what i would be doing. and he said, this is your mission, mom. >> i do feel strong and empowered. and i think that that comes from the inside. >> this is normal. it's unfortunate. but for me, it's made fortunate. >> i want women to see the beauty in that. that you're still sensual. someone still wants you. you're still awesome. you're still you, with or
without them. >> i'm authentic, beautiful, changed. >> blessed, humble, definitely humble. >> i'm strong, whimsical and i'm resilient. >> this is, obviously, a really personal decision. but i'm hearing from a lot of women on social media who say, i wasn't given this choice. i was told i was going to put you back to normal. and some of them want them taken out. and now, are wondering, will insurance cover it? >> think of all the complications that come with reconstruction. >> a lot of surgeries. >> joan, thank you for that. >> and thank you to all those brave women. really brave. >> thank you, joan. coming up next, we're going to have a revealing new look at the life of robert f. kennedy from our friend, chris matthews. first, this is "today" on nbc.
we're back. it's 8:42. next year will mark 50 years since the assassination of robert f. kennedy. he was shot and killed at the ambassador hotel in los angeles, shortly after winning the california primary. chris matthews hosts "hardball" looks beyond the tragedy to the man himself, in a book called "bobby kennedy: the raging spirit." you're such a kennedy scholar. last week, we saw some of the kennedy files opened up. what struck you? >> i stayed up until midnight. and i found some interesting stuff on bobby. i had been working for years on bobby. even though he went along with the warren commission, he and ted kennedy, they believed in it for logical reasons. the parade route hadn't been set until the day before.
how could anybody buput a conspiracy together. he said, maybe going after the bad guys. >> bobby going after the mob. >> going after the god father. he had been going after castro. was one of those guys behind what happened in dallas? >> were they doing it in retribution to dallas? >> he was saying, it could have been me. he was doing the tough work of catching bad guys, especially mobsters. >> the book is such an interesting read. and so much of bobby's life was in comparison to jack, or reference to jack. i'll just stick with that. as little kids, how did their experiences differ? >> jack was a sunny prince. he was a happy-go-lucky, charming guy. it was said that jack was a realist pretending to be a romantic. jack was not a romantic. he was cold-blooded in many ways. but very charming. bobby came off as the ruthless
one. bobby was the good guy. he was the one who got us through the cuban missile crisis. he really pushed for civil rights. he said, go on television. you have to do this ping. he was at ole miss, george wallace. he did a lot of good things. this picture, the back of the book. this is what i was inspired to write this book about. this is a middle-class family. those people, saluting the guy. this is the america that's gone now. the unity of african-americans and white working-class people together, the same type of patriotism together. and i think bobby brought them together. and since then, they've been divided. that's the division in this country, now. >> that was bobby later in his political career. earlier in his career, he did a lot of the enforcement stuff. you tell a story, that i cringe over. the part about lbj and how jack
kennedy dispatched bobby at the convention in 1960. >> jack picked lbj because he needed the south. he didn't like johnson that much. i need this guy to carry texas, georgia and the southern states. as a roman catholic, i will have a hard time down there. johnson was the one spreading rumors about jack dying, he was sick. saying he was pro-nazi. and bobby did not forget this stuff. >> so, jack gets bobby into lbj's hotel room. and trying to shake him loose. and jack, of course, called up later, and said bobby isn't in the loop. a lot of times he -- >> he threw bobby under the bus. >> he needed him. he needed him to do the job. governors, go in the back room with a governor, and they come out thinking, i spent two hours with bobby. but jack was always loved. you know what it is? a friend of the family told me -- a member of the family. he spent his whole life chasing
at stanford health care, we can now repair complex aortic aneurysms without invasive surgery. if we can do that, imagine what we can do for varicose veins. and if we can precisely treat eye cancer with minimal damage to the rest of the eye, imagine what we can do for glaucoma, even cataracts. if we can use dna to diagnose the rarest of diseases, imagine what we can do for the conditions that affect us all. imagine what we can do for you.
the citi concert series on "today" is proudly presented to you by citi. >> all right. back, now, with three-time grammy winner kelly clarkson. she's out with not one but two exciting new projects. >> she has a new album called "the meaning of life." and a children's book, "river rose and the magical christmas." let's start with music, shall we? >> yes. >> this cd. you don't just sing.
you sing. like, it all comes out. >> i do. these three ladies are doing all the background vocals, too, on the record. we're singing our hearts out. >> this is unique. this is different for you, isn't it? >> i think i'm sounding different than when i people first saw me. it's the first representation of me. whatever. life happened. and 15 years later, i don't think i would make this album sound this good back then. i love how it sounds. >> you have a new children's book. we are all "river rose in our family. let's talk about "river rose and the magical christmas." >> there's a christmas song with it, too. >> we need a song. the last book had a song. >> we need a song. >> my daughter loves your book. i will sing, i promise. i forgot to tell her that. it's so cute. >> are you ready to go?

accused of obstructing justice to theat the fbinuclear war, and of violating the constitution by taking money from foreign governments and threatening to shut down news organizations that report the truth. if that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? i'm tom steyer, and like you, i'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. it's why i'm funding this effort to raise our voices together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment.
a republican congress once impeached a president for far less. yet today people in congress and his own administration know that this president is a clear and present danger who's mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. and they do nothing. join us and tell your member of congress that they have a moral responsibility to stop doing what's political and start doing what's right. our country depends on it. what if home security was different? what if it looked different? what if the measure of working, was that you never had to think about it. ♪ what if it was so easy to use, you actually used it. [alarm] you have 3 minutes to exit. what if it gave you time, and what you really need from home security. a sense of security. ♪
