from nbc news, this is "today" with sheinelle jones, peter alexander, and dylan dreyer, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, welcome to "today," and thank you for joining us on this standard morning. >> can we go back to that playoff game for a second. this is tied for the longest playoff game in nba history. this is sort of like at the end of the kentucky derby, telling the horses to take another lap. >> i would love to be in the building or in the stadium for that game. >> that game ended a couple hours ago. we are going to check with dylan. she's at churchill downs. she has the hat, the question is does she have the boots, it's going to be a muddy one today. let's get right to our top story this morning, that breaking news, that charter plane skidding off the runway in jacksonville and winding up in a river, amazingly everyone on board survived. nbc's kathy park is here with the very latest on this one. good morning. >> good morning, guys, national transportation safety board is sending a go team to investigate this accident. while the crash was scary, it could have been a lot worse. some are calling it a miracle on
the st. johns river, a jet carrying 136 passengers and seven crew members ended up in the river late friday and everyone escaped with their lives. the boeing 737 was traveling from the naval station in guantanamo bay to another in jacksonville. boeing said it's aware of the incident and looking into it. jacksonville mayor lenny curry live tweeted updates and said president trump called to offer help as the situation was developing. more than 80 local responders assisted in ensuring everyone got off the plane. 21 people were transported to area hospitals for nonlife threatening injuries. >> would you call it a miracle that there were no serious injuries? >> i don't take that kind of approach to anything. i'm much more of a secular kind of guy. >> and we do want to add that there is word there are pets that are stuck on the plane that have not been retrieved. no word on their fate as of right now.
>> kathy thank you. other news now, breaking overnight, a huge explosion at an industrial plant in the chicago suburbs, the blast setting off a massive fire and several people this morning are still missing. we have more now from nbc's molly hunter. >> we have like 30 911 calls coming in. there's some sort of explosion. we felt it rock the police department too. >> overnight firefighters doing battle after a massive explosion and now actively searching for survivors. >> there were nine people in the building at the beginning of the incident. we had accounted for six. we are unable to account for three subjects at this point. >> north of chicago, a plastics factory blew up around 9:30 p.m. security cameras captured the exact moment the fireball lit up the night's sky. >> it was just a big boom. it kind of felt like a freight train hitting the complex. it was almost enough to buckle your knees. it was pretty rough. >> reporter: the building flattened, the debris scattered for blocks, the area was
immediately locked down as firefighters rushed in. >> i would categorize this as a massive explosion. many neighboring properties are going to have damage. >> reporter: the lake county sheriff's department tweeted we are aware of a very loud explosion sound and ground shaking. authorities say at least four factory workers were taken to hospitals with injuries. >> the plant was open and active during the explosion. >> reporter: as fire crews continue to put out the flames, authorities are now investigating the cause of the blast. molly hunter, nbc news. tensions are rising this morning between the u.s. and north korea. overnight, the north koreans reportedly fired several missiles into the sea. nbc's janice mackey frayer is covering this story for us. what can you tell us. >> reporter: this move is likely to raise tensions as talks with the u.s. have stalled and the lines of communication with pyongyang have apparently gone silent. there's a lot that isn't known about what happened this
morning. south korean officials tell nbc news that several short range missiles were fired. they traveled about 125 miles before landing in the sea. national security adviser john bolton briefed president trump late last night, and the white house saying they are aware of the situation and are monitoring this. this would be the first missile test by north korea in 500 days. it was in 2017 that kim jong un and announced that he was finished with missile testing for now, declaring a self-imposed moratorium on long range ballistic missile testing. the pattern developing seems to be kim sending a message, albeit a risky one, that he wants a break through in talks. there's been a stalemate since the collapse of the hanoi summit since president trump walked away without a deal. however at the time he said he had a pledge from kim jong un that there would no return to testing. so what happened today, what happened in april seems to
be signaling that kim is willing to escalate tension with the u.s. in order to gain some leverage. sheinelle, peter. >> jackie mackey frayer, thank you. parts of the midwest are under water after a rash of spring storms combined with heavy snow melt. davenport, iowa, on the banks of the mississippi was overwhelmed when a temporary dam gave away flooding the entire downtown area there. the mississippi river is at the highest level in 153 years. our morgan chesky is in davenport with more on that as well as dangerous storms in the south. morgan, good morning. >> reporter: peter, good morning, 42 days. that's how long the mississippi river has been in major flood stage. we're seeing a direct result of that in davenport, iowa, cars are submerged, drivers not having enough time to drive them out of the way before the waters moved in. businesses are doing their best with sandbags.
everyone here forced to wait and watch for these waters to recede. it's the surveillance video from davenport, iowa, the moment the barrier holding back the mississippi gave way. >> i was in sheer panic for five minutes, and i got a phone call from someone else saying everyone is accounted for, everyone is safe. >> pumps and sandbags are failing to keep the water out. iowa swamped by mounting snow and pouring rain this season. according to one official, more precipitation than has ever been recorded. the river crested at a new high near the quad cities, 22.7 feet. eclipsing the great flood of 1993, the losses then added up to $15 million. officials are just beginning to total the new damage. >> it was absolutely devastating. the damage down here is unlike anything i have seen. >> down river, many more communities swamped in misery. in indiana, a 2-year-old died on a country road after his mother
said she mistakenly drove into 8 feet of water. to the south, hard hit texas saw another round of dangerous weather friday night. flash flooding in the austin area, still recovering from tornadoes that demolished a historic church in lagrange. >> it saddens me because the church has so much history. the church is over 200 years old. >> nearby, workers hunkered down in their office as the twister ripped the adjoining building to piece. >> literally was a split second. life changes in the blink of an eye. my wife asked me, did you see god today, and so i did see god today. >> reporter: and this morning, a flood warning remains very much in effect for davenport, iowa, as for when this water will recede, it could take weeks, in some cases months. president trump extending his support to governors of three states saying federal help is needed if they request it. >> morgan chesky on the ground in iowa, thanks.
president trump talking to russian leader vladimir putin on friday for the first time since the release of the mueller report. but it's what the president didn't say to putin that has his critics fuming. white house correspondent kelly o'donnell joins us with more. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, sheinelle. russia says that the united states initiated that call. the white house won't say either way. they will tell us that the president and putin talked about north korea just hours before that unexpected launch. they also talked about russia's influence in venezuela and the possibility of some kind of updated nuclear weapons talks. but what they did not discuss really says a lot. on the line for more than an hour friday, president trump and vladimir putin, their first conversation since the release of the mueller report. aides say their call was by telephone, not video conference, despite the president's description of putin.
>> he actually sort of smiled when he said something to the effect that it started off as a mountain and it ended up being a mouse, but he knew that because he knew there was no collusion whatsoever. >> reporter: notably the president said he did not warn putin to stay out of the next u.s. election. >> we didn't discuss that. >> reporter: a subject avoided despite the mueller report conclusion that russia carried out a coordinated campaign to disrupt the 2016 election. a contention the president publicly questions side by side with putin in helsinki last year. this coming week, the public testimony of two major figures, mueller and mcgahn, is up in the air. president trump punting on whether special counsel robert mueller should testify on capitol hill. >> i don't know. that's up to our attorney general who i think has done a fantastic job. >> reporter: and mr. trump said a decision is looming on whether former white house counsel don
mcgahn will testify. >> that will all be determined over the next week or so. >> reporter: but attorney general william barr faces new pressure from democrats in congress, a monday morning deadline. the house judiciary committee demanding full access to all redacted evidence in the mueller report. or else the committee will move to contempt proceedings and seek further legal recourse. >> kelly, of course the other domestic headline friday, we got some new economic numbers that showed the economy is in great shape. more good news for the president. unemployment at its lowest level in half a century. more than 100 consecutive months of growth, dates back to 2010, president obama's first term, but you have this juxtaposition, this roaring economy and a norm busting president whose approval rating is hovering just above 40%. isn't this the dynamic that's going to define the next 18 months coming up to the 2020 election. >> a good economy should be a glide path for a president's reelection, and given the
circumstances around this white house, and the impulsive and news making nature of this president, some gets taken over by other events from the white house's own making. and things from the outside world, things we're seeing in venezuela and north korea. the president will try to hammer down good statistics. in year three he's allowed to claim some credit, though it began in the obama years. but there will be so many other issues they will contest, and the president's troubled numbers when it comes to his own approval does set up a different dynamic. a good economy should be helpful, and there are these other questions about the president, it will be an underpinning of the 2020 campaign for sure. >> battle lines are certainly drawn. kelly o'donnell on the north lawn, good to see you, thanks. let's check with dylan at churchill downs, good morning. >> good morning, i switched up my hat for the first weather hit. this a bridle and a rose in the
run for the roses. this comes from the kentucky derby museum. they brought a couple of their favorite hats from last year. people create all kinds of wild hats. this one subtle, wait until you see the next one. let's get to the weather. we've got a whole lot of rain moving into parts of the south. you can see all across louisiana and northern mississippi, northern alabama, we have torrential downpours, we even have the chance of severe storms with a severe thunderstorm watch across most of southern louisiana. that's because we could see large hail and damaging winds with these storms as they continue to move to the east today. these will produce a whole lot of rainfall. we have flash flood watches in effect across the appalachians to parts of maryland that does also include washington, d.c. where we could see really heavy rain later today and into and then for the northeast, we're going to see a whole lot of rain tomorrow. this afternoon, most likely from north carolina to southeastern louisiana, hail and damaging winds will be our biggest threat. with winds over 60 miles per
hour, there is the chance we could see damage there, and rainfall could be up to an inch or two as the cold front moves eastward. it's moving east through the day, and will affect the northeast all through the day on sunday. we've got a bit of cloud cover out there. 53 degrees right now in san jose. a cooling trend is expected this weekend. as we begin to see the marine layer kind of hugging the coastline. we will expect to see a chance of some cooling, at least for certain areas, especially in the south bay. 75 degrees in san jose. so we will still be pleasantly warm, just a little cooler. morgan hill, 78 degrees, in through the east bay, 79 for danville. and oakland, 59. and if you've been hanging around the coastline, we could get showers by tomorrow night. and that's your latest forecast, guys. >> thank you, dylan, don't go anywhere. >> strong hat game from dylan. coming up next, we're going to take you back to churchill downs for a look at who's going to be there for this wide open run for the roses later today.
we're back on this saturday morning, and the excitement is building just a few hours ahead of the 145th annual kentucky derby. this is always a special day. we want to show you this floral display, live on our plaza. this is a life sized horse and jockey from mr. flower fantastic, a self-taught flower artist from here in new york. nbc commissioned him to create the piece using 25,000 roses. i better be coming home with a couple thousands of those. today's race is up for the grabs, the run for the roses has no clear favorite but potentially muddy track conditions. >> dylan is back with more from churchill downs. i saw your post this morning. it looks so peaceful and beautiful now. >> it is. this is actually the biggest
secret. this is my favorite time to be at churchill downs, as horses are taking their practice laps around the track this morning. in a couple of hours, all eyes will be on this track for the running of the kentucky derby, and by the looks of it, there's a chance we could see some rain. today's storms will not top last year's record rainfall by any means. it could make for a sloppy track come race time. not even the weather whether dampen the spirits at churchill downs where anticipation is building. >> just hours until the kentucky derby gets underway, the event that's called the greatest two minutes in sports is now shaping up to be one of the wettest. >> if you've got boots, take them, make sure that you have those ready to go. >> showers have already dumped heavy rain on churchill downs and another inch is expected today. that means the track will be a muddy mess. jockeys using the friday morning thunderstorms as an opportunity to take their horses on one last rain soaked practice ride. >> 15 of the horses that are
running in the derby have run on an off track before, so it won't be the first time for a lot of these horses to face those conditions. >> the rain complicates what's already considered a wide open race after early favorite omaha beach dropped out earlier this week suffering from a breathing condition. >> we had to do the right thing by the horse. >> another, heichel scratched on friday due to a sore hoof. the race now anyone's to win. >> i talked to i would say a half dozen people since the scratch of omaha beach and i have gotten a half dozen different opinions on what's going to happen now. >> those starting gate changes mean better odds for horses like improbable, and the new front winner, game winner. under the watch of bob badford, looking for his 6th derby win. going into this race, how do you choose. >> i did my best i can to prepare them.
when that gate opens, the jockeys, they have to get it done, and hopefully the horse is ready for them so when they do ask them to go, they respond. >> but despite a field still in flux and the chance of rain, people here are looking on the bright side. >> i mean, now they have a water chance of winning none. >> it sounds like it's going to rain all day. maybe the long shot will come in. >> and you know i like to bet, with this wide open field and a chance of rain, that could change my plans for later today, a lot of people hoping the long shot comes in. you can catch the run for the roses coming up today right here on nbc where our coverage startings starts at 2:30. at 2:30. the royal baby watch, harry mornings were made for better things than rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis. when considering another treatment, ask about xeljanz xr, a once-daily pill for adults with moderate to severe
rheumatoid arthritis or active psoriatic arthritis for whom methotrexate did not work well enough. it can reduce pain, swelling, and significantly improve physical function. xeljanz xr can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened. as have tears in the stomach or intestines, serious allergic reactions, low blood cell counts, higher liver tests and cholesterol levels. don't start xeljanz xr if you have an infection. your doctor should perform blood tests before and while taking xeljanz xr, and monitor certain liver tests. tell your doctor if you've been somewhere fungal infections are common and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections. don't let another morning go by without asking your doctor about xeljanz xr.
don't let another morning go by without asking your doctor sun care is self care. i used to not love wearing an spf just because i felt like it was so oily and greasy and that it was going to clog my pores. but what i love about olay regenerist whip with spf 25 is that it's lightweight, it's barely there. and then i can put makeup on over it if i want or if i'm not working, you know, just roll. it's perfect for me. i'm busy philipps, and i'm fearless to face anything. still ahead, adam sandler hosting snl for the first time since he left the show more than 20 years ago. will opera man or any of the will opera man or any of the other

good saturday morning to you. it is 6:27. on this may the 4th. may the 4th be with you. a live look outside at the golden gate bridge. clouds and fog. gloomy morning to start our first weekend of may. really appreciate you joining us. i'm kira klapper, we begin with a look at the micro climate forecast a look at san jose, where the sun isn't quite up yet but it looks brighter than we've seen across the bay. walnut creek a little more golden, you can see the low clouds and fog. we are experiencing a cooling trend under way this weekend. you can see. that as we look from emeryville
to san francisco, definitely indicative of a cooling trend. here is a look at the temperatures for the day today, 73 in palo alto. 59 for san francisco. and 76 in napa. so still warm, enjoyable but a cooldown compared to what we've seen the last few days. 60s along the coast and bay. mid-70s inland. and low 80s as well. even a further cooldown as we go into sunday, tomorrow. under new scrutiny, california's attorney general is launching an investigation into how catholic diocese handled sex abuse allegations. among the biggest questions, did church officials report allegations to law enforcement? becera says his office will investigate all 12 diocese, the san jose diocese released a statement in part, reading in the spirit of transparency, we are carefully reviewing the request and intend to cooperate
with the attorney general's office. a man arrested for animal cruelty after a group of sick dogs were found in a trailer. police say the man you see here, jeremiah weberland had ten dog, none had food nor water and currently being treated by a veterinarian. sadly, one of those dogs died, two of the dogs were so sick, they had to be euthanized. it is 6:29. coming up this morning, on today in the bay, thousands of lyft and uber drivers planning to strike. we will tell you when they're unplugging from the app so you don't get stuck without a ride. we'll have that, plus all of your top stories and weather coming up at 7:00. right now, back to the "today" show.
we are back on this saturday morning, may 4th, 2019, take a look at the scene. this is churchill downs this morning. the horses getting ready for the kentucky derby, a live look there. plenty of other races being held today. hopefully it's going to be a good one for all of them. what a beautiful sight. >> it is beautiful. let's take a look at folks until the city in philadelphia taking part in come past cares day, a day of service sponsored by our parent company. thank you to comcast employees and families who are volunteering this morning, and william mckinley elementary school helping to spruce up the grounds there. this is something they do every year, and people on the other side of it, recipients certainly
appreciate it. >> we want to begin this half hour with a check of the headlines, first a scary scene when a jet liner slid off a runway and into a river while landing in jacksonville, florida, friday night. it's being called a miracle that all 136 passengers and 7 crew members survived this crash into relatively shallow water. 21 people were taken to local hospitals with minor injuries. the boeing 737 was arriving from cuba when hit hit rough weather landing at jacksonville. a mix of civilian and military personnel were on board. facilities flair across the border overnight. gaza militants sent 90 rockets into israel, and israel launched an air strike in response killing one palestinian. on friday, two hamas militants were killed by an israeli air strike, two others were shot by israeli troops while taking part in protests along the border.
explosion that officials described as ground shaking, rocked a town. it happened shortly before 10:00 in the evening central time. four workers were injured. at least three others are still missing. crews worked all night to try to contain those flames. the cause of the explosion is still being investigated. >> and how about this, a record four overtime thriller in what was the longest nba playoff game in 66 years. the portland trailblazers topped the denver nuggets. 140-137 to take a 2-1 lead in their best of 7 series but it took three hours and 25 minutes after the two teams were tied at the end of regulation. and then three more overtime periods. no doubt the players are a little tired this morning. >> good news is they get to do it again tomorrow night. an update on the cruise ship placed under quarantine in the caribbean because a crew member
was confirmed to have the measles. this morning, the ship is arriving at its home port with nearly 300 passengers and crew on board. but the question is what happens next: nbc's tammy leitner is following that story. tammy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, peter, i can tell you the ship arrived about an hour ago. it's unclear if the 300 passengers will be allowed to leave the ship today. health officials tell me if there's any risk at all, those passengers will have to remain on board. >> the church of scientology's religious retreat and humanitarian trip. >> this promotional video shows the free winds, the cruise ship believed to have been under quarantine after someone contracted measles. the ship carrying 300 passengers returning to its home port of curacao containing passengers.
>> in any case, try to prevent the spread of the disease. >> reporter: earlier this week, the free winds was quarantined in st. lucia for two days where officials diagnosed the measles virus in a crew member. >> given the high, other officials in the vessel may have been in contact with and allowed possibly infectious, a decision was made not to allow persons to disembark. >> st. lucia's chief medical officer says the ship's doctor had requested 100 vaccines before leaving port. nbc news has reached out to the church of scientology multiple times for comment. the quarantine comes amid a surge of cases from california to new york. it's unclear how many of the passengers on board the freewinds had measles vaccinations and nbc news is being told passengers will have to provide vaccination records before being let off the ship.
the quarantine period for measles is 21 days and i'm told some of these passengers may have to remain on the ship in quarantine for that entire time. guys? >> that's rough. >> thinking about all the passengers and crew members today. tammy leitner, thank you. dylan is back with another check of the weather from kentucky's churchill downs. good morning, again. >> good morning, guys, some things aren't meant to be worn. this thing weighs 20 pounds. my arm is tired just from holding it up. i'm wearing a kentucky derby fantasy, this is another one from the kentucky derby museum. there's horses, flowers, drinks, food, i don't know, you name it, it was put on this hat that weighs just so much. but i'm sure we'll see something similar to this at some point during the derby today. rain or shine, and it does look like we will see rain at some point today, especially in the form of scattered showers and scattered thunderstorms as well. it's nothing compared to last
year, although the last three years we have seen rain at the kentucky derby. last year we did break a record, though, with more than 3 inches of rain, and a lot of that fell during post time, so that was the record for last year, and it does look like we are going to see most of our rain occur before post time, maybe an inch of rain with scattered showers, but that could be enough time to let the course,
>> peter, if you want this hat, i can bring it back to new york for you. >> you're going to have a stiff neck after this one. >> my arms are asleep. >> can you let go or no? will it fall off? >> i think i'm good, hurts the neck but. could harry and meghan's royal baby come this weekend? to unwind... with lindor. a milk chocolate shell

>> we have been thinking this for a while. holding down the palace on royal baby watch, nbc's sarah harmon, joining us from windsor, england, near harry and meghan's new home. good morning, what do we know? >> hey, peter, hey, sheinelle. good morning, it is a beautiful day in windsor. that flag on the castle behind me means the queen herself is in residence waiting to become a great grandmother for the 8th time, and guys, you know brits pretty much invented the keep calm thing, but even the brits are getting a little bit antsy. >> the last time we saw meghan and harry together at an official royal engagement was in march. this morning, no sign of the duke and duchess of sussex. they are holed up in their home hidden behind these trees. the week has been full of false alarms. an ambulance sighting that turned out to be nothing but spurred internet speculation
that maybe the baby had already been born. then an announcement from buckingham palace on friday that father to be harry is cutting short a planned trip to the netherlands next week prompting further speculation he'll be holding a newborn in his arms by then. in a nation where they keep a stiff upper lip, meghan and harry are remaining tight lipped. the place where she'll give birth, a mystery, her due date, unknown. the british press believes baby sussex was supposed to arrive last weekend, meaning if it's true, meghan would be a week overdue. >> 60% of women will have a baby before their due date and on their due date. you have the other 40% that have it later, as high as 5 to 10% in the post 42 week mark. >> interest is at an all time high, with polls revealing harry is the most popular royal, more beloved than the queen herself.
across the street from harry and meghan at the windsor castle pub, they're raising a glass for the newest royal. >> what day feels lucky to you. >> i'll go on saturday. >> i'll drink to that. saturday. cheers. >> you're welcome. >> if baby sussex is waiting for a gorgeous sunny day to make its entrance, there is no time like the present. it really does not get much better than this in rainy old england. peter, sheinelle. >> we're at the point where the weather is beautiful if the baby wants to come today. that's where we are. sarah harmon thank you. thanks. just ahead, does jamie foxx have just ahead, does jamie foxx have a heavy weight new role in it's where rock meets roll. side meets kick and best meets friend. this mother's day show your love with a gift from the love and be loved collection by kay.

>> of course i can. >> what are the styles this year? >> longer lengths, kind of uneven, flirty looks. it's a special time for you to go outside your box and be bold and be bright and be seen because everyone's going to see you at the derby. >> should we try some on? >> sure, let's go. >> thoughts? what do you think? should this be the one? got my dresses, time for the hat. now, this one could be exactly what i was looking for. there we go. this one i could just feel falling off my head. >> christine moore has been a hat maker for nearly 30 years. she's now the kentucky derby's featured milner, crafting more than 500 hats leading up to the race. >> why do you think that the thing that has stuck as a tradition with the kentucky derby? >> it's so fabulous. it's just like the pinnacle of
fashion. it's elegant head to toe. >> and what makes a hat a quintessential kentucky derby hat? >> there's one thing that's a little over the top. >> i could do flowers that are cascading down like this. >> after my consultation, they worked eight hours for a customized confection for me to wear on race day, a sure winner for the derby. so guys, i actually had four hats made for four different outfits, i wore two yesterday. this is number three. i have been posting them on instagram if you happened to miss it, and i have one more to go this afternoon, and it's the dress, it's the hat and it's everything i love about the kentucky derby, so you can see that one when our coverage of the 145th running of the kentucky derby begins today at 2:30 eastern right here on nbc. so guys, again, i'll bring them
