according to the associated press, quoting the egypt committee, the pilot reported technical difficulties and inn text tension to be land at the nearest airport. the 18-year-old airbus a-321. the jet was descending at the rate o o 000 feet per minute before the signal was lost. ththair russian transportation official said 217 passengers and crew members were on board and it was handed off to cyprus officials, but t(ey never made contactith radar. it i suspected that many of the passengers are russian tourists returning from vacation. russian jet 9268 is confirmed lost from radar carrying 217 passenger and 7 crew members and crashed in the sinai peninsula of egypt. carson and erica, back to you. >> ron mott in london. thanks.
7:01 am
>> let's turn too tom costello who handles aviation news. tom, what are investigators looking at? >> reporter: i think they have to look at a number of things. they will look at the weather conditions at the time. right now, there is no suggestion that weather played a role. the mechanical history of the airbus a-321. this is a reliable plane. the biggest airbus in the family. it has a good record. they will look into the mechanical history of the plane and we don't know which engine configuration on the plane. one made by ge and one madad by rolls royce pratt and whitnene they will look at the rate of descent. at last report, the plane was coming down 6,000 to 7,000 feet per minute.
7:02 am
that is not a terribly unusual descent rate. it would suggest that somebody must have been trying to control the plane. keep in mind that for example, to compare that rate of descent to the plane we know crashed. air france 447 over the atlantic, descentete 15,000eet per minute. we don't know the circumstances. we need to get a little more information before we determine if the pilot was in control of the plane trying to guide the plane down or not. one other point. there was an original report from the scene, as you know, very often the original reporting turns out to be wrong. some original reporting that voices may have been heard in the wreckage. if that's true, that would suggest to me anyway that the pilot did manage to somehow put the plane down on the d dert floor befefe it came apart as
7:03 am
it is all conjecture. we don't know. the authorities will have their hands full. we believe it will be the egyptian authorities and russian authorities and because it is a plane made in europe, made in french, the french investigation team as well. >> you will continue to stay on top of it for us. tom, thanks. now to the deadly floods in texas. two people dead and others feared missing after the severe weather hit overerght. there are authorititi on the way to inspect t t areas. we have nbc's charles hadlock in texas for us. >> reporter: good morning, carson. central texas hit with record-breaking flooding. two people dead and one still missing. central texas is reeling from a wicked amount of rainfall this halloween weekend. more than 14 inches of rain in less than 24 hours. >> there's one of our vehicles

7:06 am
this is the batate field u.s. special forces will enter. a multisided civil war. ruthless, urban combat. there are isis position over there and across the horizon and there where you can see the smoke rising from the intense battle for this syrian city. in northern syria this summer, kurdish fighters showed me cell phone footage of areas liberated from isis. isis fighters inject themselves with drugs, they said, before launching suicide attacks in vehicles packed withh explosives. fewer than 50 u.s. s scial forces will be here to train and advise, calling it an expansion and not a change of policy. while admitting it is risky. >> as it relates to their mission, this is an important thing for the american people to understand. these force does not have a combat mission. >> reporter: in 2013, the president promised no ground war in iraq or syria.
7:07 am
i will not put american boots on the ground in syria. >> reporter: the u.s. strategy to defeat isis has stalled despite 3,300 troops in iraq, while russia has launcheded its offensive in syria. the foreign minister insisting the confrontation with the u.s. is avoidable an. this is a complex battle field. iranians and kurdish militia and al qaeda and moderates along with isis. the area descends into more conflict, more desperate refugees will flee for their lives. while we were in the kurdish control area of syria where special forces will operate, two forces struck the town. there are systemmpathizers throughout the region. >> thank you, keir. nice to have you in the studio.
