side. let's start with our top story on a monday morning. talking about damaging storms ripping through the south, with another day of severe weather on tap. we'll get to al's forecast in a moment. but first, maya rodriguez is in alexandria, louisiana. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, mat. overnight in alexandria, heavy rains flooded streets and homes here. so far, the storms have killed two people and left more than 40,000 without power across 5 states. overnight, heavy storms battering parts of the gulf coast. lightning streaking across the sky. >> there it is, tornado. >> reporter: a tornado moving quickly across the highway, a reports of multiple tornadoes hitting the state sunday. just 20 miles away at this strip mall in alexandria, stunned shoppers looked on as a funnel cloud appears. >> the winds are picking up.
7:03 am
>> reporter: rapidly forming into a twister, blowing out windows. >> the windows are busted out of the car. >> reporter: powerful winds leaving a path of destruction. bringing down trees and power lines. collapsing part of a gas station, ripping the roof off of this home. earlier, another tornado brought tragedy to one family in louisiana. after 100-mile-per-hour winds flipped this mobile home, killing a woman and her 3-year-old daughter. the husband and father, inconsolable. >> i lost everything. i lost everything. i lost my family. >> reporter: in other parts of the state, lightning caused this oil tanker to go up in flames. the weekend's severe weather, just the latest in a day's long barrage across the region. with flash flooding, damaging winds and hail, all possible in the coming days. this morning, the threat of severe weather will push east into mississippi, alabama and
7:04 am
georgia, putting more than 20 million people in the path of these storms. matt? >> maya rodriguez, thank you very much. al's map tells that exact story. more troubling weather. >> unfortunately, we've got tornado watches, severe thunderstorm watches and flood watches as this system moves east from the mid mississippi river valley all the way down into new orleans. we're looking at very severe weather. today, as you just heard, 20 million at risk. tornado risk is highest along the gulf, including the florida panhandle. tomorrow, it lessens just a little bit. 10 million people at risk, from oklahoma into missouri and again, along the gulf. it fires up for wednesday. we're talking 43 million people at risk for damaging wind, hail and strong storms from the tennessee -- mississippi river valley all the way up into the southeast. as this system pushes through, airports will be a big problem. travel delays from the southeast to the mid-atlantic.
7:05 am
and it will be round after round of not just strong storms. but heavy rain, snow, into new england, by tuesday afternoon. look at the rainfall amounts into saturday. 3 to 7 inches of rain through the lower mississippi river valley. but it stretches all the way up into the northeast, with 4 to 5 inches of rain. we'll probably be looking at flood watches up and down the eastern seaboard. travel delays, big, big problems as we move on into the middle of the week. >> welcome back. that was a fun week. >> we had a good time. this will be a critical and busy week for the white house. the senate judiciary committee is set to vote on president trump's supreme court nominee, neil gorsuch. it sets up a high-stakes showdown with democrats who want to block confirmation. the ongoing investigations into russia meddling in the election. nikki haley saying there's no question that moscow was involved and the actions will be addressed. and break overnight, we learned that jared kushner is in
7:06 am
iraq. an unannounced trip for the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. he will play a key role in president trump's meeting with china's president. >> our team ready to break it down. with the white house issuing tough new talk on north korea, lester holt has made his way to the region. but let's begin with peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. first, a senior white house official confirming to me overnight that jared kushner is in iraq. there with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. his father-in-law, the president, has meetings with china, egypt and jordan. he's eyeing his first domestic victory here, the confirmation of neil gorsuch. and even as president trump is tripped up by the wiretapping dwe twe tweet, he is spoending to "the financial times." we issue hundreds of tweets and
7:07 am
every once in a while you have a clinker, that's not so bad. but the wiretapping tweet, he ns insists, without evidence, is turning out to be true. a stalemate over the supreme court, despite the president's praise for neil gorsuch. >> judge gorsuch's nomination is about more than his just incredible qualifications. it's about preserving our republic. >> reporter: standing in gorsuch's way, a divided senate. >> neil gorsuch will be confirmed this week. how this happens depends on our democratic friends. >> reporter: the democrats threatening to block gorsuch. >> it's highly unlikely he will get 60. when a nominee doesn't get 60 votes, you shouldn't change the rules. you should change the nominee. >> reporter: gorsuch needs eight democrats onboard. so far, he only has three. if democrats force the issue, mitch mcconnell is threatening
7:08 am
to do something that's never happened with a supreme court nominee, deploying the so-called nuclear option. changing senate rules to override democrats, confirming gorsuch with a simple majority, just 51 votes. a move that could have far-reaching implications long after gorsuch is confirmed. this battle goes back more than a year. democrats angry about republicans' refusal for giving president obama's pick a hearing. and also, president trump is looking to resurrect the health care plan, playing golf with rand paul. >> i think the sides are getting closer together. i remain optimistic that we will get obamacare repealed. >> reporter: the president venting his anger about the russian investigation, dismissing it as a scam. mr. trump blaming leaks, writing, find the leakers. all of it as michael flynn's business ties to russia come under renewed scrutiny. two sets of flynn's disclosure
7:09 am
forms show he failed to list three russian-linked companies that paid him for speaking engagements. flynn's lawyer saying the first filing was just a draft that had bundled speaking fees and was not completed because flynn lost his job a few days after the submission. as for the president's son-in-law, and senior adviser, jared kushner, who is in iraq, traveling with the joint chief of staffs, a trip confirmed by a senior white house official, kushner and ivanka, an official but unpaid adviser to the president, have hundreds of millions of real estate holdings. but ivanka keeping a stake in her father's d.c. hotel. a source familiar with ivanka trump's plans, all of her business decisions were made after a consultation after a meeting with white house ethics lawyers here, to remove, as they say, any potential conflicts. matt and savannah? >> peter, thank you. >> let's bring in nicolle
7:10 am
wallace and ari. this was a week for the confirmation neil gorsuch. and to hear mitch mcconnell tell it, he's going to get confirmed. but what are the stakes here? >> the stakes are high, as republicans will bend the rules. republicans made the original fight over the obama era about the seat, not the man. they won. now, democrats have painted themselves in a corner, making this about the man not the seat. and they are on the precipice of losing. >> he says democrats are painted themselves in a corner. so, if republicans go nuclear, which is the term that everybody is using, and they require only a majority vote, according to the rules, how will this play out? and which party has more to lose in this? >> i think democrats are snatching defeat in the jaws from victory.
7:11 am
to their base, they may be satisfied for tyaking a hide of garland. but people that may have glanced at the confirmation hearings, they saw gorsuch was qualified. a republican president replacing a conservative judge with another conservativconservative shift the balance of the court. it was a silly fight for democrats to pick. >> let's talk about jared kushner. he has a visit to iraq. he has a broad portfolio. >> the world. >> is that unusual? >> yes. it's one of the more stun ining- the stars have aligned in jared and ivanka, in that they are the most intimate people in trump's orbit. and they are the most influential advisers among a power-hungry white house staff. jared is in iraq. there's some reports in his role of setting up the meeting with
7:12 am
the chinese. what draws them into the crosshairs on questions of ethics isn't whether or not they filled out the right forms. it's just the vastness of the influence. >> that's a good way to turn to you. there's a lot of what ifs. what if the holdings put them in conflicts of this decision or that? what if his businesses impact the president's decision on other topics? at the moments have you see anything than what ifs? do you see a red flag on the pole for everyone to look at? >> flying media around the pole. whether or not the money came through, it raised a question if they are speaking for the business or for the public interest in their roles. the d.c. hotel post office hotel has a provision that says you can't be a federal employee and make money from it. that is an open question. these are fixable things and they've met the legal limit that
7:13 am
other employees hit. but there's a lot of questions of which hats the s they're wea because they're wearing a lot of hats. >> we'll be pack in touch with both of you this week. have a good week. >> thank you, guys. now, to a scene of desperation that's playing out in south america, after an avalanche of mud buried a mountain town. now, rescue worker s race to fid survivors. tommy leitner is there. tammy, good morning. what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning. a wall of water came rushing down here, carrying everything in its way, including this giant bus. as you can see behind me, rescuers have been working around the clock, frantically searching for the hundreds that are still missing. this morning, a desperate search for the missing. as survivors of one of the worst natural disasters in recent history, struggle to hold out

7:17 am
do the threats from north korea, do they rattle you? or do you take them with a grain of salt? >> it's spring, we're going to hear another threat that south korea is going to be turned into lake of fire. we've heard it before and nothing has happened before. >> reporter: seoul is a modern metropolis of over 10 million people and hardly looks like a place under constant military attack. but shelters are plentiful and marked. we're 100 mills of the dmz. what's casting a chill all the way to washington, is north korea is claiming to work on an intercontinental missile and a warhead capable of reaching the u.s. >> this is a threat of rhetoric and growing capability. right now, it appears to be going in a very reckless manner. >> reporter: secretary mattis will get no argument from this man, a high-ranking north korean diplomat who defected last year.
7:18 am
>> and i was asked these questions, i always, you know, tell them that kim jong-un is a person who did not even hesitate to kill his uncle, even his half-brother. so, he's a man who can do anything. >> reporter: in addition to missile developments, activity spotted on this commercial satellite photo suggests north korea may test another nuclear warhead soon. >> think of this as two streams that are moving fords each other. you never want the streams to cross. when they do, the u.s. will be forced to make a decision, whether or not to do a preemptive strike. >> reporter: it's important to note there's about 300,000 u.s. citizens living in south korea. the vast majority of them here in seoul. i attended a briefing with u.s. military officials who said a lot of the planning is focused on how to get the american civilians out, if, in fact, hostilities were ever to break
