circus became such a disaster. >> for the second day in a row weather turned outdoor fun into tragedy after a severe storm blew down a circus tent in lan lancaster lancaster, new hampshire. about 100 people were inside the tent watching the walker brothers circus around 5:30 p.m. when 60 miles per hour winds, one inch hail and lightning caused the tent to come lass. >> white fields groveton jefferson respond mutually to lancaster fairgrounds. circus tent collapse. minimum of radio traffic, please. >> police not releasing the names of the deceased. described them as a young hand and a young girl. both spectators here to see the show. at least 15 victims were taken to four area hospitals. the national weather service had issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the area during the time of the collapse. >> we'll be looking at the construction of the tent and how it was set up.
these are fairly substantial structures when they're put up and we haven't had any issues in the past. >> the accident comes just one day after a man died and more than a dozen were injured when high winds caused a tent to collapse during a sudden storm at a festival in the chicago suburbs. now here in new hampshire today they're still trying to learn the seriousness and magnitude of the injuries suffered by the spectators and perhaps circus performers as well. we reached out to the operator of the circus, walker brothers international based in florida. so far nothing from them. no comment or response to what happened here. matt and savannah back to you. >> ron, thank you very much. >> from dangerous storms in the east to raging wildfires out west, crews are being pushed to the brink of exhaustion battling the rocky fire in northern california and conditions there are not helping. nbc's joe frier has the latest for us this morning. good morning. >> good morning, savannah. this fire now burned about 100 square miles.
right now 13,000 people remain evacuated. every time firefighters begin to slow it down the flames seem to shift into something unexpected. >> the rocky fire is devouring newer in new territory this morning after leaping over highway 20 in multiple spots. >> thihi is not what firefighters wanted. the flames now burning on the north side of highway 20. >> the flames are unpredictable. whipped up by winds in one direction one minute and another direction the next. >> today i saw three or four different heads from the fire and each one was kind of leaning a little bit different direction. >> a lot of fire activity. very active burning. >> from a helicopter flying over the scene you can see miles of charred land. an area at least twice as large as san francisco. >> a lot of firefighters have expressed they have never seen this in their career. it's burning with great intensity. >> down below rick sanders is the only one in his neighborhood yet to evacuate.
he stayed behind to defend his home of 30 years which rests flames. >> it has been almost this close before. close. it's pretty hot fire. >> probably scariest one that i think i've seen. >> his home is among 7,000 structures still at risk. wildfires are burning across the drought stricken west with more than 20 major fires in california plus others to the north in washington and oregon. but it's the rocky fire now 7 days old that won't be contained burning too close for comfort. our team experienced the fires erratic behavior firsthand yesterday when the flames jumped over the highway we were well over a mile away but then we heard on the scanner the fire could be heading toward our direction in just 30 minutes time. prompting our team to quickly
evacuate as a precaution. matt and savannah. >> it can just shift on a dime as we saw there. thank you so much. >> let's turn to politics now. voters were given a taste of what they can expect in thursday's first republican presidential debate. during a candidate forum in new hampshire last night. but the most talked about contender, donald trump wasn't there. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is in manchester. he has more. hi peter. >> reporter: good morning to you. this is the end of the political preseason. the 2016 regular season kicks off thursday night. just two days from now but here last night 14 republican rivals in this first primary state tested out their best talking points trying to nail down that job interview but among those missing, donald trump. >> ahead of thursday night's debate the pregame warm up. 14 republican candidates sharing a single stage in new hampshire. but donald trump skipped the forum touting his front runner
status with a press release instead. >> will you attack donald trump? >> no. my goal is to let people know what i think. >> should donald trump have been here? >> it would have been nice but, you know, i'm sure he had something more important to do. >> the two hour forum played out like political speed dating. the gop contenders saving their best barbs for president obama and the clinton. >> she lied about benghazi. >> i have been dealing with this crowd for 20 years. i'm fluent in clinton speak. when he says, bill says, i didn't have sex with that woman. he did. >> the latest republican turning to a stunt to distinguish himself. >> in texas we cook bacon a little differently than most folks. >> cooking bacon on the barrel of a machine gun. >> machine gun bacon. >> and now more red flags for hillary clinton's campaign. the new nbc news wall street journal poll shows nearly half of americans have a negative
view of the former secretary of state. after almost 25 years in the national spotlight clinton is trying to reintroduce herself once again with ads focussing on her late mother dorothy, her inspiration. >> when i think about why i'm doing this i think about my mother dorothy. >> still up in the air whether joe biden will jump into the race. sources telling nbc news the vp is still undecided. on tap today a private lunch with the president. no word if 2016 is on the menu. so where was donald trump last night? he said that he wasn't here because he thinks he's not going to get the local newspaper's endorsement and he thought that 14 republicans was simply too many for a proper forum but matt he says that he's a nice guy and he will be there thursday night but he will only attack if someone hits him first. >> peter alexander, peter, thank you very much. let's bring in chuck todd. nbc's political director and moderator of meet the press. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt.
>> have the latest bloomberg poll on the republican side. you factor that in with the four most recent other polls and you get a clear sense of who is is going to be on stage on thursday night. what jumps out? >> well, the fact that donald trump's lead continues to grow. he really is consolidating at least sort of the anti-washington support inside the republican party and it really is just eclipsing everybody. by the way, matt, it does look like the 11th spot right now is where rick perry and if you believe fox and they'll speak to their ten cutoff he wouldn't make it but they don't like the idea of decimal points deciding 10 and 11 so more likely there will be an 11th podium thursday night. >> when you get donald trump standing in the center of the stage that makes that person a juicy target. what is the risk reward for another candidate taking him on directly? >> well, look, the risk is if you attack him, he will counterpunch. he said it.
he said it to me on sunday. that's what he does. but he did say he doesn't plan on going on the attack first. and i think that that is sort of an interesting decision that some of the candidates make. some of the ones in low single digits are incentivized to go after him because they want the moment or the tv highlight but if you're jeb bush or scott walker and you're playing the long game you probably don't want to get into a food fight with him although the moderators will try to set that up and that will be the most sense moments of the evening. particularly bush versus trump. >> imagine a nascar driver mentally preparing for a race knowing one of the drivers will be drunk. that's what prepping for this debate will be like. those are his words and not mine. let's move on. let's take a look at numbers from the latest nbc news wall street journal poll. these are favorability numbers for jeb bush and hillary clinton.
>> i want you to understand something about jeb bush compared to mitt romney. very similar candidacies. they're the establishment pick. mitt romney was that guy four years and already jeb bush has higher negative ratings at this point in time in the campaign than mitt romney did. mitt romney barely got the republican domination when there was this antiestablishment uprising and they went candidate shopping and ended up with san toir torum. he may have all the money in the world but right now he's in think. >> on the hillary clinton side her numbers? >> her numbers, she has higher negatives, lower favorable ratings right now than at any point in time did barrack obama. so you have the two dynasty candidates and they're in a worst position for hillary clinton than barrack obama ever was during his 8 years and for jeb bush already at a worst
position than mitt romney was at this time and he struggled to get that nomination. the two dynasty candidates in an anti-washington atmosphere they're struggling more than ever before. >> chuck, thank you very much. >> let's turn to tamron in for natalie and an arrest has been made in the shooting of a police officer. >> yes we van update on that. good morning, everyone. the man suspected of gunning down a memphis police officer is in custody this morning after an extensive manhunt. police say 29-year-old tremayne wilbourn turned himself into federal authorities in memphis on monday. he's facing first-degree murder charges in saturday's shooting death of officer sean bolton. he was shot multiple times after coming across a drug deal taking place in a car that was parked illegally. >> an outbreak of legionaires disease claimed the lives of several people here in new york city. more than 80 people have been diagnosed with the disease which is caused when water
contaminated with a certain bacteria is inhaled into the lungs. the bacteria were discovered last week at a bronx hotel and in some hospital equipment. some frightening moments in the netherlands monday when two massive construction cranes fell over on to a group of houses. the two heavy machines were lifting part of a bridge when they toppled over on to nearby residential buildings and a couple of businesses. up to 20 people are believed to be injuried in that accident. safety officials are still investigating it. >> and at least five cars were damaged by an unmanned run away garbage truck near pittsburgh. the driver and another trash collector stepped about 10 feet away from the truck when the brakes became disengaged. they were terrified surely. thankfully no one was injured but that's what you call a bad day at work. for the first time this morning we're hearing the dramatic
details from a man that tread water for four hours off the coast of new jersey. >> hoisted to safety in the dead of night. lucky to be alive. after falling overboard this man had been swimming for four hours, 44 miles off the coast of new jersey. >> the boat went this way and i fell right out. >> freezing cold without a life jacket praying for a miracle. >> it was a big thunderstorm. giant bolts of lightning and just waves that were huge. >> what started as a fun day of fishing with a friend turned into every sailor's worst nightmare. >> by the time i came out of the water i saw the boat and it kept going. >> man overboard. >> the wind was so bad a. it was blowing me back or it was blowing the ship away from me. >> nearly drowning he says he swam about ten miles. >> i coughed water out of my lungs so many times and all i would have had to do was just take one breath of water and it was over.
>> numb from the cold and cramping up thoughts of his family were what kept him alive. >> i just couldn't picture the next day somebody coming to tell them that i'm not going to be home anymore because i knew it would ruin their lives. >> i almost lost my whole world. i love him more than anything. >> finally reunited with his boat his friend threw him a lifeline and then this daring coast guard rescue air lifted him to the hospital where he made a full recovery. >> i'm just happy to be here. i really am. >> i bet he is. it's an incredible story matt and savannah. without that coast guard video a lot of times people don't believe it's humanly possible for you to survive in those conditions but there it is on video with him being rescued. >> physical stamina and mental stamina. >> thinking about his family kept him alive. >> thank you. >> good news for the folks down in florida. >> they need some. they have been looking at some places double digit amounts of rain.
this is live right now newport richey, florida and look at the flooding and the river is actually still rising. they have not reached their crest yet. look at what they got yesterday in the tampa area. i mean, it was crazy. some areas picking up 5 to 8 inches of rain. the good news is, its over. okay. the heavy rain is just about done. they'll see some scattered showers. you can see them right now but the good news is its just about done. we're going to be looking at these showers and thunderstorms moving through. we have flash flood watches until about 8:00 tonight. heavy down tps pours this afternoon. some will be out tomorrow. some areas 3 to 5 inches. we have a front pushing through and heavy thunderstorms move through quickly. those will move and then we may see another round of showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon. 38 million people at risk for these storms. fast moving, damaging winds and hail later this afternoon. we're going to get to your local

saw 75% skin clearance. and the majority were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your dermatologist about humira. because with humira clearer skin is possible. cottonelle cleanripple texture gets you cleaner, but will it get people clean enough to go commando? did you just wipe your bum? well, i sure did. did you notice anything about the texture? it's very...functionally efficient. this is the equivalent of your muscles. it just gets a hold of everything. yeah. nothing's left behind.

>> it's warm out now. nowhere near as bad as what we got for our friends in california. the drought continues and really the part of california is hard hit. tulare county where much of our growing takes place. 5,000 families are without running water. the wells have run dry and they have no way to refill. right now as far as drought is concerned more than 35% of the state is in exceptional drought. the big problem is there is so little rain that's fallen since january 1. for example, fresno has only far. 40% for the year in los angeles. san francisco, 22%. as you might imagine that's why the wildfires have been running rampant. as you saw in joe fryer's report we had firenados. nature creates a vacuum.
super heated air rises rapidly during the wildfire. these are generally thin. they are tall though. about 100 feet going into the air. they can really generate rapidly. rest of the country, a risk of strong storms in the central plains and along the northeast coast into the midatlantic states and wet in florida. nowhere near as bad as they have been seeing over the past 21 days, 20 have had heavy rain. thank you very much. the heavy rain moved east now. showers and storms are exiting. clouds giving way to sunshine at times. nogs more than a spot shower north and west of the city. very warm day in the upper 80s. turns breezy and humidity come down too. clearing skies tonight. 50s and 60s in the suburbs. tomorrow, a good deal of sunshine and warm with low humidity. high temperature of 86. low 80s on thursday. rain and wind friday and saturday. finally, is the sun returns by

we are back with the issue of the war over the office air conditioner. >> we don't have an issue. >> we do. >> this side of the room. >> we have to have hand warmers at this desk because it's so cold. a lot of people are having the issue at their offices. men think it's fine, women are freezing. now we know why. there is a new study and jenna wolf has been looking into it. what's going on? >> we have been arguing about it for decades, hundreds of years. it's a big conversation. it's 100 outside but you find yourself carrying a sweater, two sweaters and layers to work and a blanket when you get there. the men can't relate but your female co-workers know what we are talking about. a new study getting to the root of the reason for the great office temperature debate. >> hot enough for you?
>> turn up the a.c.? it's blazing. >> there is no relief in sight. >> hot town, item summer in the city. >> you need long sleeves, a blanket and a blazer. >> just in case. >> it could be a hundred degrees outside. it feels like the north pole in here. >> this is at your desk throughout the summer? >> sometimes there is shivering. >> reporter: an old formula may be to blame for the tussle over office temperatures. a new study says the temperatures in many office buildings are determined by an outdated and inaccurate model developed in the 1960s based on the resting metabolic rate of a 154 pound 40-year-old man. fast forward and half of the work force is female but the thermostats haven't budged. the great air conditioning debate isn't just in your head. finding that in general females prefer a higher room temperature
than males in home and office situations. that's 77 degrees for a woman. compared to a cool 71.6 for men. >> women tend to have lower basal metabolic rates and burn off energy slower. they burn off heat more slowly and are colder. their arms may be out. they may have skirts on. men wear layers with jacket and suits. it's more likely the difference will be pronounced. >> reporter: it's a battle of end soon. >> there is truth to that. we are wearing short sleeves and shirts. >> we have to dress like them to be comfortable? >> we have to take off the jacket to dress like you. >> the delays love it. >> "magic mike". you money there are suggestions

of what "was thinking b and i said to myself that things that i liked of my work were things that really reflected how i was feeling. and "forgetting sarah marshal" is how i felt at 24. a breakup feels like everything. and at 34 years old, i'm thinking how i'm going to spend the next 50 years in a way that felt good to me. and that's what this move write is really about. how we want to spend our time and what's going to make us feel satisfied. >> it's an extraordinary role. the writing is beautiful. the delivery between you and jesse is amazing. foster wallace. he committed suicide back in 2008 in his mid 40s. he's very concerned throughout the course of this movie how he'll be portrayed in this article in "rolling stone." how do you think he would feel about the way he's portrayed in this movie? >> well, i learned a while ago i don't think it's ever smart to try to guess somebody else's mind. when i try to guess what somebody else is thinking about, they're always thinking about me
which is probably not the case. but what i do think is that the movie is a real extension of the themes of his writing of infinite jazz and speech he gave "this is water." it was a speech he gave to the kenyan commencement class. it talks about how we want to spend our time, what we want to think about, what's going to make us feel good when we go to sleep at night. >> can you do a movie like this and get all the attention you're getting and will get for this role and then go back to some of those other roles even if it's how you feel at that time in your life? >> yeah. i don't feel limited by any genre. but what i want to do is movies that you walk out of the theater and want to have a conversation about. and i also want to do things that make me scared. last time i was here i was talking about my book "nightmares." it occurred to me that i'm telling 10-year-old that's the only way to achieve your dreams is to face your fears. i can't say that to kids and not do it myself. >> that's a good way to look at it. you can make up for the fact that you didn't reveal this to
me last time by mentioning me in your oscar speech. somewhere after relative and people like that. >> okay. that sounds like a fair plan. >> jason, fabulous. >> thank you so much. >> congratulations. >> and the end of the tour opens in select markets this weekend. then nationwide on august 14th. up next, two guys looking for the next big thing. investors club. but first on a tuesday morning, this is "today" on nbc.

he apparently wasn't wearing a life jacket when he was on his boat. here's what damian and his wife, robin said about his four-hour ordeal in the water. >> the wind was so bad, it was blowing me back. i coughed water out of my lungs so many times and all i had to do was take one breath of water and it was over. i just couldn't picture the next day somebody coming to tell them that i'm not going to be home anymore because i knew it would ruin their lives and i love them too much for that. >> i almost lost my whole world. i love him more than anything. >> you saw in that video, the coast guard air lifted him to the hospital and he made a full recovery. he falls off the boat, his friend is still in the boat, doesn't know how tooperate it, can't go get him.
a boat spots him, they finally get around the pick him up and through really difficult thunderstorms, and tough conditions, the coast guard plucks him out of there. >> he was talking about lightning and wavess all around him. >> that was the hardest part of my swim training and to tread are for that amount of time. and he said without thinking about his family, he would not have survived. that was the light at the end of the tunnel. amazing. survivor instinct of a different kind kicks in with the women of the today's take. but every day, joe, one of our colleagues gives us heaters for our hands to stay warm in this studio. >> is it that bad? >> that was a sigh you gave me. oh, here it goes. so there's proof now that women

you're a meat meteorologist, that's a big difference. >> i don't think you need to be a meteorologist to figure that out. >> but six degrees. >> six degrees of kevin bacon. >> so, they haven't reset -- >> right, so it question is do you think -- like, today, every office building, should they reevaluate based on this study and bring it up to 75? >> for every degree above 78, you're saving 2% energy. there's an economic and a climate cost to this. which, of course, is a good thing to do. >> and we want our planet to be great for years to come, so let's crank it up. >> in hot places, it's always over air conditioned. you go into a store or
restaurant, it's freezing cold. i'm for air conditioning, but there's a point where it's ridiculous. >> and bejing, who will host the 2022 winter olympics, one of the songs china used in the bid, causing a little controversy. it's called the snow and ice dance. listen to the song "the snow and ice dance." okay. >> it sounds like a frozen song. let it go. let it go. >> this is "snow and ice." >> sing it, adeen ina. >> now, listen to "let it go." >> this is a different song? >> same song.
