i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than
howling winds, cracks of thunder, and bolts of lightning raining down on central florida. the severe weather is now over, but we are still tracking damage in some places. good morning. thanks for joining us. i' m stewart moore. we have team coverage with chris hush out live in brevard county, and meteorologist dave cocchiarella here in studio. dave, let' s start with you. dave: showers are moving offshore. parts of the state. weather and the outlook as well. -- wendy for us as well. temperatures are hovering at around 71 degrees. there are some things in the road out there. in terms of temperatures, the cooler air is settling in the peninsula. we are all topping out maybe one or two degrees higher than we are right now. colder air will then arrive later today. it was a powerful line of thunderstorms. it has now moved offshore.

have not had damages like the images you saw and the sarasota area. here in brevard county, we still have those winds coming on very strong. the rain has moved out. basically, what you are dealing with on the roads, you have debris like this. tree branches and whatnot down in the roadways. you will want to watch out for that. if you are driving, be careful. this is kind of popping up along the way. we want to show you some video from osceola county. we were there earlier when the storms were just coming through. we were pounded with rain. we also had a lot of wind. there was a debris coming right through that parking lot. we were actually dodging it at one point during the height of the storm. that has now died down and pushed out of the area. if you are in the cocoa area, there are some power outages. this time.
some of that power may be on by 9:00. is the goal right now. with the wind still blowing , it is difficult to tell when the power will be restored. we have not seen any severe damage. no injuries have not been purported -- reported in park county. we will stay on top and let you know what we hear. for now, chris hush, wesh 2 news. stewart: right now, ouc' s online outage reporting system is down as some customers lose power. this is a live look at the outage map. as you can tell, there isn' t much information, just that anywhere between 201 and 1,000 customers are in the dark. viewers tell wesh 2, they' ve tried logging online to report an outage. but they got this message, which says, "the system is down for maintenance until monday at 6:00 p.m." there is still a phone number you can call. since central florida is at risk whenever there is a strong el nino pattern, we have some reminders for staying safe.

g stewart: welcome back. we are just a few hours away from the last image credit debate. meet the press moderator chuck todd joins us live from washington. good morning chuck. senator bernie sanders has been piling on the heat against hillary clinton. he is now backpedaling on the gun law he agreed with years ago. chuck: on this issue, this is a few -- one of the issues where henry clinton has gotten to the political left of bernie sanders. that is why you will continue to hear the gun issue being brought up by hillary clinton a lot. i am not surprised. it has taken bernie sanders a while to repudiate a vote that he cast about 10 years ago. it gave immunity to gun manufacturers when it comes to being held liable for gun deaths.
holding back, but last night he essentially said that he would support a new bill that was introduced to repeal that immunity. hillary clinton will now go after him about the issue of the waiting. -- waiting period. considering the debate tonight is an charleston, s.c.. had the background check been longer, the man who killed all those folks in that church down there -- maybe he does not get that done. it will definitely be a hot button issue in south carolina. the youth vote to be up for grabs. i think that has been clinton' challenge here. he has won the hearts critically 40. there is really enthusiasm there.
be thinking this is deja vu all over again. this is what exactly -- this is exactly what happened with her and barack obama those years ago. just like barack obama, he proved that he was ready to be president. he looked up to the job when standing next to hillary clinton. he did, and he became president. bernie sanders has yet to had a showdown -- have a showdown with hillary clinton where he looked like the next commander in chief next to hillary clinton. stewart: it should be an interesting debate. you can watch chuck todd later this morning on "meet the press." jeff, thank you for joining us. chuck: thank you stewart. stewart: here is wesh 2 ' s pat clarke with the sports. pat: we expect great games when the nfl playoffs begin. the packers and cardinals more
