10:00 am
this morning on "today's take" daye diggs on starting the next chapter in his life and wearing fatherhood on his sleeve and then demi losta bears all. the photos everyone is talking about and "star trek's" george takai embarks on a new enterprise. all that comi up now. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today's" take with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist and tamron hall live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. welcome back to "today" on this monday morning, october 5th, 2015.
10:01 am
i'm natalie along with tamron and looky, looky, looky outside. >> look who the cat dragged in. >> hi, kids. >> our good friend hody-ho. >> i always wonder what had happened at 9:00. >> you're supposed to be working. >> this is a pre-show to warm you up. >> the pre-show. >> this is when you're mixing and then you start drinking during your hour. >> hoda is here, of course. we've got willie in new hampshire and also al is down in south carolina covering the storms for us as well. we're going to touch base with all, but let's start off with you, al, and the historic flooding, something the governor years. >> yeah, guys, i've got to tell you it is startling how this area has been brought to its knees but this weather. let's go to our drone. we've got a look at the congaree, how do i pronounce
10:02 am
this again, the congaree river. i've been having trouble with if all day, but you can see the flow of this river. here's a statistic that just is a mind-bogler. at the height of this yesterday 1.4 million gallons of water was flowing past this point per second, per second. that's -- that would fill two olympic swimming pools per second. it is now down to about 1.2 million, but it's still an amazing amount of water that's flowing, and the -- and the deep water rescues that went on yesterday, we have video to show you that is just unbelievable. away. first of all, hundreds rescued. there you go. people using boats to swift water rescues. people using actually human chains to get people out of high water, along rope lines. it was unbelievable. of course, our four-legged
10:03 am
friends had to be rescued as well. the animal shelter here is really suffering, and people, unfortunately, driving into high water and having to be rescued. there was one video of a pickup truck that was floating down the street and a good samaritan grabbed a tire iron, swam out to the guy and bang the out the back window and he was able to climb out so thousands rescue. hundreds of people. thousands are still out of their homes. we've also got nearly 30,000 people without power right now. that's pretty amazing, and all columbia residents are told to boil water because they have had water main breaks and there have been sewage backups, big problems, and, in fact, they may have to evacuate. there are three hospitals in columbia, two of them downtown because of the lack of water they may have to start
10:04 am
evacuating the high school and at the university of south carolina the dorms are without water so they may have to evacuate as well. a really still dire situation, guys, that continues to be tracked. back to you. >> all right, al. thanks so much. you're doing a terrific job there. >> the human chains that they had to form to help each other. neighbor helping neighbor. ? it's hard to believe just a few days ago talking that joaquin is hitting and everyone breathes a sigh of relief and it's turning away. >> and there were always fears of a second storm system and al warned and predict that had sadly this was the potential outcome but to your point, natalie, seeing those people really and being since taken by a surprise even with the warnings, and you know, hoda, with your ties to new orleans, whenever we see people on the tops of roofs, you know, begging for help and assistance, that sends a special shiver through all of us and now we have another potential information. >> it's funny. when i worked in new orleans, and it was a day we remember,
10:05 am
like katrina, but the images looked very similar to south carolina. everybody thought it was just rain, not going to be a big deal and all of a sudden something like that happens. >> water rises so fast. >> let's lighten the mood, a lot of people enjoyed themselves over the weekend in other parts of the country. some tuned into "snl," season premiere. miley cyrus hosted. i was a little scared. you never know what's going to happen, but hillary made a guest cameo and played a bartender named val. she's in a sketch with kate mckinnon as secretary clinton. >> it really is great how long you've supported gray marriage. >> yeah. >> i could have support it had sooner. >> well, you did it pretty soon. >> yeah. >> could have been sooner. >> fair point. >> maybe you should take a vacation. >> a vacation? >> a vacation. >> what are you saying?
10:06 am
>> did somebody say vacation? oh, my god, they are multiplying. if we r are one there's always tomorrow >> i heard hillary at the town hall asking if she had any kinds of musical talent and somebody that had to stand there. >> willie is in hollis, new hampshire for a pancakes and politics town hall with hillary clinton. hey, willie, nice to take a toss from you on a show, hoda kotb and i saw secretary clinton right before the town hall and what should i call you secretary clinton on val and, please, i
10:07 am
an awesome venue in hollis, new hampshire, right along the massachusetts border with an amazing group of people who are either hillary supporters, people thinking about supporting hillary or independents maybe supporting bernie sanders or somebody else, and they got the opportunity in a setting that we don't see very often with a presidential candidate sitting in the round for about an hour, hour and a half answer their questions. we did, of course, talk about benghazi, we talked about e-mails and about what her foreign policy would look like as president, but us a pointed out there were some lighter questions getting to know hillary clinton a little bit, including one that was asked about what song or instrument would be played at her inauguration. >> secretary clinton, you've had a lot of you have to questions this morning, this may be the toughest one you get all day, but many years we go we saw another clinton at his inauguration playing an instrument and song. what song or instrument would you play at yours? >> saturday night on "saturday night live" i sang "lean on me"
10:08 am
with kate mckinnon who plays me better than i play me, so maybe that will be the song because it -- it wasn't as bad as i feared. you know, all my friends from literally grade school and high school, you know, were just e-mailing me like crazy. i can't believe you sang, you know, the person who the choir instructor would say, you know, hillary, you can sit with your friends who are sopranos as long as you don't sing so probably that's a good start i think. >> were you impressed by secretary clinton today? >> absolutely, yes. >> anybody change their mind about supporting her? >> yes. >> yes. >> a very strong woman, very capable woman. >> very strong woman. >> we had a great cross-section, people representing the state of new hampshire which obviously, guys, is so critical if you want to become the nominee. got to win in this state. >> yeah, willie, thanks so much. a great crowd. thanks to them for participating. >> fun this morning. >> it was. strong women, friday we celebrate the breast cancer survivors right out on the plaza
10:09 am
with our pink party today. it got us thinking of a promise that we made last year. >> let's get another woman should join us, another hot woman should join us this fine morning. >> surprise. >> we're like connected. >> nbc is out of hot women so they sent me in. >> oh, dear. >> they are using every single one they have got today and then they said, kath, do you mind if you go in, fine, here i am. >> you are the one with the sheer lace top. >> oh, imagine that. >> you still got it, my friend. >> i still have too much of it, i know that. >> you've got presentee. >> how are you guys doing? >> how was your weekend? >> soggy, but not anywhere near like south carolina where people are truly suffering. i was thinking and praying for everybody over the weekend between the fires in california and the devastation on -- it's like -- >> yeah, yeah.
10:10 am
>> matt pointed out when he interviewed governor nikki haley, point the out the church shooting and now this and asked about the resilience of the people in this state. >> and she is always emerging as such a leader and yet a calming influence and people love her down there. >> yes. it's a challenge for everyone. >> may be in the news, a couple of presidential cycles from now, who knows. >> were you surprised, and last year we challenged our viewers to help us raise $10,000 for breast cancer research. >> oh, i remember this. >> yes. >> it was a major moment. it went viral. >> somebody went under. >> i did in a gown and actually some jewelry from anne taylor lost that raised money for breast cancer. >> i want to point out your wet hair is good. >> you are being kind. >> hody is not kind but she's honest. >> okay. so, this year the stakes are as they say higher. >> okay. now what? >> like a blackjack table of some sorts.
10:11 am
we're raising thetantics and we're gambling in a sense because we're asking you at home to help us raise $50,000 by the end of the month. >> what's the thing in. >> here's the deal. last year i said if we raise the money all four of us, that would be willie, al, natalie and myself would all get dunked. i have never seen a dunker that fits four people. >> so you'll have to build that. >> we'll need a bigger dunker. >> anyway, we're asking you to head to if you could please start donating, even the smallest amount. >> yes. >> we had kids last year who raided their piggy banks, you know. >> it brings out the best in people. >> that's sweet. >> bricks out best in people. >> and you need to join us as well. >> that's nice. >> we're up the next hour. >> we have hair issues. >> oh, come on. >> there's going to be some surprises along the way. maybe you'll surprise us. >> oh, okay. >> are we being railroaded? >> we are so grateful to have this opportunity to be dunked
10:12 am
for a great cause. >> it's going to happen. >> that's right. >> and all the proceeds go to the avon foundation for women. >> awesome. >> let's head back down to al in columbia, south carolina, with a exwhich of the wetter. >> if you got two dunk tanks, if you make them for threes, if hoda and kathie lee would join and we got $100,000. >> someone just raised it even more. >> al roker just raised it to 100,000. >> i'm so glad i have an isb in. >> he said 100,000 and we have to get dunked, too. >> oh, okay, for that. >> we'll do it. >> are you guys in? >> we're in, we're in. >> you're in. >> 50 for me and 50 for hoda. >> no, we don't get paid. >> it doesn't go for me, for me to dunk and you to dunk, i think it's worth it. >> and we have a month and should be fair to our viewers. >> let's just keep it at 1 and you're in. >> we need to raise it and go for the 100. >> i need to pray about this. >> 100 if we're in. >> while she's praying will you update the weather there, please.

10:19 am
>> you have a lot of questions as he was being raised. is that why you wrote the book? >> no, no, i wrote it from my childhood because i didn't have anything like this to refer to when i was a kid. luckily a lot of the kids today, you know, are in the classes and schools that are a little bit more diverse but that doesn't mean that these issues don't need to be looked at. >> your first book "chocolate me" where you say you addressed so of the questions you got growing up. >> was that tough in. >> tough for me and then i think my cousin is of mixed race and, you know, people weren't as comfort able comfortable with who they were and kind of standing up to where they came from. this book touches on that and we hope it will make it even easier. >> does walker like the book in. >> yes. >> it is he read it to you or you to him? >> i read him to him and then he tells me which pages to repeat. >> that's so cute? illustrations are all in the family.

10:22 am
in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto . nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily p and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. p xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. r get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us. pask your doctor about xarelto
