7:12 am
craig. a blizzard warning in the area and with good reason. overnight, we saw snow, sleet, rain and it expected to last throughout the day. a historic monster storm has brought parts of the south to a standstill. interrupting the lives of millions. in oklahoma, slick snow covered roads made for treacherous road conditions. snow plows working around the clock to clear interstates. in tennessee, snow plows not used to the volume are having problems. >> please don't hit the buses. >> reporter: this plow skidding out of control barely missing two stranded school buses before taking out several cars. >> snow plow. oh, my god! >> reporter: snow and ice paralyzing the south. states of emergency in alabama, georgia and carolinas. thousands stocking up. >> milk and eggs and hunker down. probably a case of wine.

7:14 am
the area where we are. the big concern is the temperatures are dropping more than they have and the roads icing over. craig. >> tammy, leitner, get inside. on the west coast, a massive amount of snow and rain hitting this weekend could cause deadly floods and mudslides. the worst in at least a decade. nbc's steve patterson is in san francisco this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, sheinelle. we're getting drenched sooner than expected. the front end of the storm expected to slam into us. the brunt is soon to follow. forecasters are predicting a once in a quarter century level event in the storm. a ten-day storm expected to bring more flooding than we have seen in the region in the last ten years. northern california is bracing for the very worst of it. some places here will see up to 15 inches of rain. others, 20 feet of snow.
7:15 am
in the storm zone, stretching from southern oregon all the way down to southern california with city centers like reno, tahoe, san francisco, los angeles, portland all in the cross sdhai for snowfall or sustained rainfall. that means an increased risk for everything from flash flooding to rock slides to mud floes and leading to power outages and leading to possible property damage and leading to the potential for this to be a fatal storm. people are heeding the warnings. communities are gearing up with sand bags. people stocking up to weather this thing as it continues today on into tuesday with sunday and tuesday being the big one-two punch of the storm. back to you, sheinelle. >> stay safe. indra peterson is in for dylan. >> we are very busy in the weather office.
7:16 am
looking at a lot of warmth to the south. you can see the cooler temperatures. we are starting to transition over to snow. with that, the low up the coastline. you have two ingredients. moisture off the ocean. that is one side of the story. to get the bull's-eye, you will need that cold air to intersect. the two come together at the same time, that's where you look at the bull's-eye. that is why raleigh will not see the high totals we saw yesterday. farther north in norfolk with the stronger totals. the low is closer to the cape. they will have blizzard warnings in effect. they could be seeing 1.5 feet of snow in the region. look at the totals. norfolk with 6 to 12 inches. the blizzard conditions with heavy snow and windy conditions on top of it. that is one coast. we will have the next one in a few minutes. thank you. we will come back to you. >> let's get to other headlines. president-elect donald trump is starting his day today at trump

7:18 am
credibility. we further assess putin and the russian government develop a presence for trump. trump dismissing it as a witch hunt. only saying other countries are engaged in cyber hacking. to emphasize there was no affect on the outcome of the election. the report did not make a political conclusion, it clearly pointed a finger at putin. >> i would have liked to see the president-elect finally knowledge the obvious. everyone else accepted this. it is time for him. >> reporter: the vice president-elect trying to make peace with officials said to be anger by the comments by the soon-to-commander in chief. >> i know the president-elect and i both appreciate the sacrifices that the men and women who serve in our intelligence services around the country and around the world provide in contributing to the safety and security of the

7:20 am
intelligence director. thank you, ron. >> we have the top open efficient official who is the leader of crowd strike. sean, let's start with what is in the report and not in the report. i want to call your attention to the statement from president-elect trump. he said there was absolutely no affe effect on the outcome of the election. sean, did the report say anything about whether the hacking had any sort of effect on the outcome of the election? >> let me say a couple things, craig. i read the record. this is an unclassified investigation of the highly classified report that will have a lot of information about signals and intelligence. many people who look at it is a there is no proof. i'm reading the conclusions. the intelligence community is going to protect their sources and methods. what i see is a broad espionage campaign that has gone on for
7:21 am
years. it is not an isolated incident that the dnc was hacked. the second piece that is important is the russian intelligence service is a highly capab capable. among the best in the world organization. this will go down, i think, as one of the premier stages opint operations in recent history. the last piece addresses your question specifically. the report says there is no indication that the election was impacted. in other words, while there may have been an influence campaign, there is no reporting or proof or evidence that actual vowte tallies were affected. it did not effect the actual election results. donald trump will be the president. this should not delegitimize that. we need to looking forward understand how critically important this risk is that the national security of the united states is a bipartisan effort. we have to look at that going forward. there has to be a coalition of
7:22 am
united states abilities to make sure we protect the country. craig. >> this is just the beginning of the conversation. shawn henry, thank you. a busy saturday morning. let's bring in indra again with the check of the national forecast. >> i want to start off with the storm on the west coast. look at the two pinwheels bringing the moisture through california. with that, we're talking about heavy rain. 20 inches in good morning. i'm krystal klei. a large area of snow from the system to the south is pressing our direction. snow is expected through the southern half of the viewing area today. with we're around a first alert. from when now through 7:00 tonight. and we're looking at the heaviest snow totals. 7 inches and above along the coast. dangerous travel potential. so it is important to note.
