6:30 am
they've been weakened by five days of massive flooding, one dam officials are watching closely is on lake katherine. if it breaks, it could impact 50,000 people causing water to rise two feet per minute. so far, 18 dams have breached since the flooding began saturday, and right now national guard troops are hauling in sandbags to help stabilize the ones still standing. officials say there could be more evacuations today. now the number of people killed in the flooding is at 13. at least 40,000 homes are without running water across that state. but the power has been restored to all but 1,000 homes. president obama has signed a disaster declaration to help with the costs now estimated in the billions. in a second we'll talk with the head of fema. but to my colleague, sarah dallof. you've talked to one family that's lost everything and we have heard that story over and over, sarah.
6:31 am
>> reporter: yeah, we have heard it over and over again, tamron. we're in one of those neighborhoods that could be affected by lake katherine should it breach. i want to show you the number of cars on the side of the road. these are homeowners, volunteers, some of them friends, some of them complete strangers who are coming out today despite these concerns to help homeowners kind of get what they can out of their homes, take stock of what belongings and developing now off the are left here. it is a very emotional day for coast of the bahamas, a these homeowners, some of whom desperate search of survivors continues from the ill-fated are seeing their belongings and their homes for the first time cargo ship "el faro." since these floods hit. we'll pull up right now the coast guard believes it sunk at the height of joaquin when it was a category 4 storm. 33 people were on board. the body of one crew member has been found. right now a go team from the national transportation safety board is on its way to jacksonville to begin an investigation. >> we'll be looking at the voyage data recorder. in a will be up utmost importance to look to try to find that. we'll be looking at any
6:32 am
activities or any objects that may be perishable. we'll be interviewing anyone involved with "el faro." >> mark potter is live in florida and i'm joined with generous -- general russell anray. >> a coast guard official told me overnight they found nothing significant in their search, certainly no survivors. they are out there today doing hard search, a big search with lots of planes, ships and their
6:33 am
full concentration is on finding survivors. they have not done that. other is that time now is of the essence. it's been a long time since this ship was last heard from, five days since they heard from the ship. that means potentially five days since these people were in the water but they're not giving up, they continue to search. the ntsb is on their way now doing the investigation. they're going to have a hard time because they don't have a ship to work with and they don't have a big debris ship to work with. so they're going to concentrate on the things up said earlier to try to piece together what happened. meantime, a lot of people here in jacksonville and in many other places along the coast are really concerned and are angry with the decision to head that ship toward the storm. let's listen to one of those people. >> the ship at least should have docked in miami and waited till
6:34 am
the hurricane pass. that's what the company should have recommended the captain down and that's what the captain -- in my particular judgment, i'm not a captain, you never should have sailed through those waters. period. period. >> the company owner said the captain did try to circumvent the storm but was unable because they lost propulsion on the ship. they say that put him in a precarious decision because that would have put him sideways across the waves and could cause the ship to tip over. >> they had more than enough life boats, rafts, in your experience could swup still be
6:35 am
alive in the water or maybe in a racht or using one of these suits? >> the fact that the coast guard is still traeching this as a search and rescue is a pretty good indication that they think the line is narrowing the idea you would still find people alive. but as of yesterday, the experts were saying there was still a probability five days after. the problem is if they depart or tried to leave the ship last thursday, that storm was a category four storm. and that is some significant wind and damage. so that adds to the complexity of the operation. but the fact that the coast guard and friends and navy are out looking at sea and the coast guard will make that call that it's a search and rescue mission that there's still the possibility of someone surviving that horrific shipwreck. >> general, it's not just these
6:36 am
category 4 storm winds, it's also the waves that this was encurrentering, 50-plus foot waves. is it common for a ship this size to try and outrun a freak of nature like this? >> well, i would reserve comment on that. this is still search and rescue. i think we got the right people on the ground. they said okay, who was in command here, is this another bp operation where the ceo is off playing golf and you got a captain out there making an idea signatures with the lives of these men on board? the ntsb will get after that. i think right now the fact that the coast guard is still pressing search and rescue, there's a chance, a hope they might find someone. with a debris field of over 200 miles can only describe the complexity of trying to hull of
6:37 am
that trip. we was just been through this with airplanes. >> thank you both for being with me this morning. >> in the fight to control syria, russia continues to say one thing and do another. it continues to insist its only targ thing eyis fighters, despite evidence it's focused on eliminating all forces opposed to syrian leader assad. to make matters worse, nato said this morning there's been a substantial buildup of russian fors inside syria, including ground troops. but professor, always a pleasure to see you. when we spoke last week, these
6:38 am
strikes were beginning. the concern was russia would attack assad's enemy. what's going on? >> assad is somebody that putin does support very much. and i think what putin is doing more than anything is that he's fighting an information war. he's saying one thing and doing another in a sense that, for example, he just accuses cnn of confusing the president's saying it's -- basically he's saying the merps have no idea what they're doing the and russian information should completely be trusted. >> putting aside the information or misinformation that, quite frankly, the kgb where mr. putin
6:39 am
worked at some time was an expert at doing, misinformation. le so what is exactly russia trying to do and what and can the world do if they're saying they're fighting against isis but they're wiping out the opposition to that syrian dictator, that opposition which includes the people we've been trying to train to go after isis. >> that's what putin is saying, that americans don't know what they're doing. they say they are fighting against isis but in truth they created a much larger problem, syria is still in horrible crisis. america tries to get at assad, who is a legitimate leader. there is a migrant crisis and putin is stepping in so he can help the world situation rather than foster more problems. once again i come back to the information wars because in the
6:40 am
russian press now they talk about nato saying that russians are not there for the right reasons, it's because nato wants to get involved. so nato wants to participate in that war and nato wants to fight russia. as for turkey, i think vladimir putin has been trying to warn the president in saying do not support is supporting that kind of fundamentalist forces. that's what putin is trying to do on all levels and all sides, in information but also on the ground. whether he would seasoned the ground troops or not it remains to be seen. so far they insist they haven't. but it's entirely possible next week when they talk there will be ground troops in syria. >> putin is obviously thinking
6:41 am
this is nor thing he can try and may work for him. how far is he willing to go? >> that's another thing about putin. we always try to predict how far he can go but we think that cannot be because strategically that does not work. for example, there are news already that isis declared millions for the head of russian soldiers. so the fact that thinking isis won't go to russian cities is delusional. putin always blames the other side. and a lot of this campaign because it's syria and it's very far from the russian border at least at the time so it's also, as i said, an information campaign, a propaganda campaign for his own public saying i am defending against american incompeten incompetence, against fund
6:42 am
fundamentalism. he declares a christian war in a sense saying the migrant crisis in europe is not only a migrant crisis, it's also a -- i think what works for him, he plays a different level but i don't think that anybody who says they can predict putin's steps, you know, five or ten, is really quite solutional because so far we've often been wrong on the predictions of his strategy. >> thank you very much. always a pleasure to see you. >> thank you. >> there's a handful of consumer stories i want to tell you about. general mills has issued a recall in some of its cheerios, honey nut cheerioss, some boxes

6:52 am
systemic corruption. he has also acknowledged while the afghan security forces are better equipped and trained than ever, much work remains to build their systems and processes and improve their leader development. i've offered my chain of command several options for our future lay-down in 2016 and beyond. it was envisioned in mid 2014 that we would transition to a normalized embassy presence by january 2017. that remains our planning assumption. since that time, much has changed. we've seen the rise of insurgents. mass a result i put forward recommendations to adjust this new environment while addressing our core missions -- train, advise and assist the afghan security forces and conduct counterterrorism operations to protect the homeland.

seeing. even from the up state, waters receding down into the middle of columbia and we're facing in our residential areas where many of the smaller lakes have these smaller dams. as the water continues to push through, the domino effect we're seeing where the dams are potentially breaking or structural damage occurring. >> what's the top priority right now then? >> well, top priority is still search and rescue, to be honest with you. we're still getting numerous calls for service and our combined effort with our columbia police department, our richland county sheriff's department and our fires and ems, that remains the priority to make sure that we are getting to all distress calls, all calls for service, and to also encourage voluntary evacuations as necessary when we are assessing the smaller dams. and if it appears that there's going to be a break, we're trying our very best to stay ahead of that with the residents
7:03 am
in that area. >> the fact that now there is sun. but it is important i think to state that there are going to be challenges in the days and even weeks ahead. >> that is the message that really i did want to get out. we're thankful that the sun is out. it appears bright. i do think what we're seeing gives us a little bit of a false sense of what is truly going on. we are in from all indications a level 1 fema type event here. it is a disaster event in our community. and because in the downtown area businesses are able to open and a lot of access from our interstates is open, people are able to come in to work, even though our mayor and council are still considering day to day a curfew. that sunlight and day to day access we hope doesn't give people a false sense of what is really going around in the outskirts of the community where
7:04 am
the dams continue to potentially break and the water set to flow with the heavy currents. we're trying to balance that and make sure people know all of the information they need to know as far as how vigorously we are working to restore water service. the boil water advisory does continue to be in effect but our main priorities now are still search and rescue and restoring water service to the people, citizens of columbia. >> city manager teresa wilson, thank you so much for your time this morning. the american commander in afghanistan admitted today that the u.s. made the decision to launch an air strike that hit a humanitarian hospital but told the senate committee was a mistake. 22 people were killed in that air strike. doctors without borders says it is no excuse that it the air strikes were called for. >> so the discrepancy that we've
7:05 am
had of the descriptions going from collateral damage over a tragic incident, to now pushing the responsibility to the afghan government strengthening the request that we have and the demand to have an independent fully transparent investigation on what has happened this weekend. >> nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel has been following this from istanbul for us. richard, the u.s. is now taking responsibility for the air strike. changing the explanation of why it was launched? >> reporter: the u.s. is taking some responsibility for it but not all of it. general campbell has been giving a wide ranging testimony talking about the capacity of afghan forces saying that they are strong in some places but still need more support, that they're not showing signs of collapse like the iraqi army which collapsed in northern iraq. that al qaeda is mostly on the defensive but pressure still
7:06 am
needs to be on -- maintained on al qaeda in afghanistan. but the most sensitive part of this testimony really has to do with the attack on the hospital in the early hours of saturday. the u.s. has been changing its story several times so far. first the pentagon said that american troops were in imminent danger and that an air strike was launched to protect them. then general campbell yesterday said that wasn't the case, that it came as a request from the afghan government for u.s. to provide air support. and then today he acknowledged that, yes, there was a request from the afghan government that the request went there you the u.s. chain of command, but that something happened. a mistake was made and that the u.s. would not intentionally bomb a hospital. and that question of intent is one that is going to become very important in the coming days because doctors without borders,
7:07 am
which ran this hospital, is accusing the u.s. of intentionally bombing a hospital, carrying out a war crime, killing 22 people, doctors and patients, including some patients who were in their beds in the icu. so it is -- they are very carefully chosen words because the difference of intent versus mistake versus a targeted attack all have very important legal implications. >> richard, let's be clear -- this is not a temporary hospital with some kind of tarps. this was an actual structure that was known to be a hospital. >> reporter: it was a large compound that had been there since 2011. it was well known. doctors without bordered said it providing everyone, including the u.s. military, the coordinates of its location. that doctors without borders during the bombardment itself, which it said lasted over an
7:08 am
hour and came in waves with attacks occurring every 15 minutes, that even during the bombardment itself doctors without borders was calling liaisons -- not sure exactly who -- but calling the u.s. military and pleading with them to stop the attack. and from doctors without borders' perspective, this was an intentional attack. it knew what it was hitting. it hit it repeatedly and is therefore responsible for carrying out a war crime. general campbell saying today, yes, a request was made. there was an air strike. but that it was a mistake to hit the hospital. so the question is, well, how was that mistake made? did the u.s. think they were hitting a different building? where did this mistake take place? and that is one of the subjects that is going to be looked at as three concurrent investigations are under way. doctors without borders doesn't trust any of these investigations. one being carried out by the afghan government, another by
7:09 am
nato, and a third by the u.s. military. >> richard engel in istanbul, thank you very much. nbc's luke russert has been following general john campbell's testimony in front of the armed services committee. luke, what's been going on? >> reporter: well, jose, senators and staff i spoke to before this hearing said that the questioning would focus on three things. obviously the horrific attack on the doctors without borders facility that i think richard summed up pretty nicely. the other two aspects are why is the northern area of afghanistan suddenly falling victim to the taliban, specifically that town you mentioned, kunduz, as well as a third line of questioning about whether or not the withdrawal of u.s. forces by the end of 2016, which is the wish of the obama administration, is still a possibility. those are the three lines of questioning. now i think richard summed up pretty accurately what happened with the hospital's line of questioning, the general admitted it was up in the u.s. chain of command that authorized that and it was a mistake,
7:10 am
they'll have restraining of their forces. but there are some interesting developments as to why the taliban has been able to have a resurgence. general campbell has said that there is a surprise in the coalition that that area fell so quickly, that perhaps the afghan forces are not up to the level that they needed to be, specifically when it comes in calling for air support and whatnot. it's terms of the withdrawal date. the general did leave some wiggle room open saying perhaps that should be re-examined. perhaps we may need to be there longer or have a residual force on the ground. there is also a mention of the growth of isis in afghanistan, jose. so what you're starting to see here is perhaps the military signaling to the obama administration we don't want to have a repeat of what happened in iraq where we got out too early and isis filled the void. we're starting to see the afghan forces not being up to snuff in this very important strategic region in the northern part of the country. maybe we can stay there longer. that's the very interesting political question.
7:11 am
remember, president obama, he won the nomination in '08 on getting out of iraq. he wanted to get out of both wars as a legacy issue. but this might not be happening as to what's going on over there. >> thank you. general campbell just referred to exactly what was going on in afghanistan. here's part of what he said. >> to be clear, the decision to provide aerial fires was a u.s. decision made within the u.s. chain of command. a hospital was mistakenly struck. we would never intentionally target a protected medical facility. i must allow the investigation to take its course and therefore i'm not at liberty to discuss further specifics at this time. however, i assure you that the investigation will be thorough, objective, and transparent. >> that was general campbell just moments ago. the white house meanwhile says president obama plans to meet with families of the victims in the deadly shooting at an oregon
7:12 am
community college holding a private meeting with the families on friday during a visit to roseburg. at the same time we're learning more about the gunman and how his mother may have had an impact on his fascination with guns. nbc's miguel almaguer has more. >> reporter: startling new revelations about the mother of chris harper mercer. the shooter who killed nine people at umpqua community college last week. for over a decade, laurel harper, a registered nurse, offered online advice on various medical issues like asperger's syndrom syndrome, an youutistic spectru. using a profile name tweetie bird, harper also wrote about her firearm and gun law fascination, an interest she also shared with her son. my son has much knowledge in this field, she said.

we're still waiting on vice president joe biden to tell us whether he'll run for president but we can tell you this morning that he's closer to finalizing that decision with the first democratic debate just a week away, some reports indicate the vice president could be as little as days away from making a public announcement. if he runs, he'll have to get up to speed quick. deadlines to get his name on ballot in critical states are popping up in a couple of weeks. then there's always the issue of money with the final fund-raising quarter of the year now under way. steve, we've known he would get into the primary. he's a pretty popular guy if he chooses to do so. >> we could put some numbers to
7:18 am
the idea he's pretty popular right now. this is the peak of his popularity as vice president and really as a national political figure. the newest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll numbers. these are the critical first two primary states but also key swing states in the general election. look at the difference among all voters among the favorable/unfavorable views. biden, new hampshire, 46% favorable. look at hillary clinton. just 36% favorable. 60% unfavorable. if you turn that around and start putting these perspective head-to-head match-ups together, how would they match up against the republicans? in iowa if you look at joe biden against jeb bush, jeb bush up by two. if you put hillary clinton in that race in iowa, big difference there. she's getting blown out in iowa by 11%. you see a similar dynamic in new hampshire. a general election match-up here. if you put biden up against jeb
7:19 am
bush in new hampshire you'd see joe biden ahead and hillary clinton struggling right there. these are the sorts of numbers joe biden would look at right now. i think it might encourage him to go forward with his candidacy. at the same time, one of the reasons obviously why these numbers are so strong for joe biden right now is that he is not a candidate and he's not getting muddied every day in the same way hillary clinton is. >> unfavorables go up when you are a candidate and the target gets put on your back. >> absolutely. >> steve, thanks. coming up -- coast guard captain mark fedor will join us live on the search in the atlantic. but first a check on wall street. the dow. up 25 points. that's not bad. not great. we're at 16,800. some of the gains thanks to mcdonald's which is part of the stock index. shares of mcdonald's are on the rise after rolling out a new plan to turn around weak sales. will breakfast all day help the bottom line? more ahead.

now to developments from wall street. let's look at the numbers right now. stocks are kind of mixed in this first hour of trading, up 22 points. the dow, s&p 500 down four. nasdaq down 27. cnbc's mandy drury is here with a market rundown. >> not major moves as you can see. but we've enjoyed the best five-day run since 2011 for the benchmark s&p 500. you can expect a little profit taking to kick in today. also what we're seeing is oil is moving higher extending gains with the eia saying u.s. crude output is going to fall through mid 2016. we've also seen crude and the market move in tandem in recent days. by the way, we got the forecast from the imf today, the international monetary fund. it is downgrading its forecast for global economic growth
7:24 am
basically it says falling commodity prices and also some very volatile financial markets have raised those global risks and so now the imf thinks the world economy will grow 3.1% this year. that's down from a forecast it made in july of 3.3%. but i think the take-away headline here is that it is the slowest pace since the recession year 2009. so not great. >> mandy, meanwhile disney making some headlines as well this morning. it is going to cost a lot more for some folks that want an annual pass? >> it's hiked its rates for its annual passes. some of those prices are above $1,000 for the first time. it is because of the strong peak demand. sort of supply and demand. it maybe wants to control the crowds a little. but some people just really aren't happy. some are saying they won't renew at those higher rates. some say it is kind of only for wealthy people now so what's the deal. a lot of people took to social media to express this frustration. as for the individual tickets, jose, they're $99.
7:25 am
were raised by $3 in february but that's substantially more like kind of double what it was about ten years ago. ten years ago you only paid $50. inflation creeping up. >> it's more than inflation, mandy. come on. >> much more than inflation. >> $100 for a single ticket? lot of people just -- aren't going to be able to go there. it is really sad. >> i know. that of course is the frustration that's being vented right now. not the happiest place on the planet today. >> thanks, mandy. up next, a massive search for survivors at sea. coast guard captain mark fedor who's leading the search for "el faro" joins me next. we'll also turn to politics where a rivalry on the right takes another turn. for all the talk about money, new data shows donald trump isn't spending a lot of it. but first, a live look now inside michigan's lottery headquarters in lansing. they're about to introduce the
