terror in france with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on this friday morning. we were just sitting here in the last c we were just sitting here in the last couple of minutes trying to figure out what words we can use this morning to set it apart other. >> the effective words fail us because we find ourselves in the midst of such terrible heartbre heartbreak. >> here's what we know. this is the latest we know this morning. the death toll rose overnight to at least 84 people, including a 51-year-old father from texas and his 11-year-old son. >> president obama quickly issued a statement condemning that attack and offered the u.s.'s help with the

across europe, german police increasing patrols along its border with france. >> we have complete coverage with bill neely. he is at the scene of this terror attack. >> reporter: good morning, matt. last night this street was filled with thousands of people gazing up at a fireworks show when a truck -- it's still back there behind the white screen, plowed into them at top speed and kept going. we know the driver was tunisian descent, and this was an act of pure terror. dissent. he drives towards dozens of people, and he zigzagged
7:03 am
the road to the boardwalk plowing into people. >> we just started running. >> reporter: eyewitnesses recall bodies besides dollars and strollers, and as many as 200 hit by the truck, and dozens died, and among them, two americans, sean copeland and his 11-year-old boy, brody. the truck was finally stopped by police bullets, and the windshield riddled, the driver killed. amid it all, a mother and daughter from california. >> maybe 70, all very close to each other and very, very fast. it was like, pop, pop, pop. >> i was terrified. i put my hand on the baby's mouth so she wouldn't
7:04 am
driver fired shots as a pistol and he was a 31-year-old man from nice, a known criminal known to police in nice but not to french officials. president obama sent a message, we stand in solidarity with france, our oldest ally. and france is reeling from another massacre, and the streets almost deserted. >> it doesn't seem safe anymore in france. >> reporter: france mourning amid more horror. >> that was bill neely reporting from nice this morning. we are joined by two americans that witnessed the horrific attack, bob that was a television correspondent,
7:05 am
tapl de. we were so struck by the way you saw, almost like a tidal wave of people coming towards you. with a did you witness last night? >> i was standing about 15 minutes -- 15 feet, sorry, to our immediate left here, and i had been picking up wi-fi the last several days and i remember looking up and seeing a wave of people with completely panic-stricken faces running towards me at full steam, and my first instinct was to run in that direction, and as soon as i took off, we heard the gunshots and that made me run faster and i turned around to make sure i was with the pon
7:06 am
traveling with and we got away safe. but my instinct told me immediately something was terribly, terribly wrong. >> and some people thought the truck lost control and veered into the crowd. you are a trained journalist and reporter and when did you realize this was something much more severe? >> well, as a matter of fact, most people who that the witnesses to all of this would immediately jump to the conclusion that this was not some sort of horrific accident. they say that the driver very obviously hit the gas and it was not something that he did involuntarily and he seemed to aim, according to many, many witnesses, or the people who were walking along after the fireworks display, it was medley after it was over and he took off and had his deadly run up on the me
7:07 am
aftermath? we have been looking at some of the images and it's almost too much to bear when you look at the human carnage lying on the street? >> sure, yeah, it was a very confusing process for most people. we were part of the first wave of people running through the streets and everybody was looking back trying to figure out what was going on, and we were having to grab people, run, go home, get out of here because they had no idea what was happening and when i got back to the residents i was staying at, they thought it was an accident and no big deal and then the news trickled in and we knew what happened. >> what was security like prior to this? the promenade closed off and the fireworks show drew thousands. what was it like? >> well, there's a heavy pe
7:08 am
these days, and we have gotten used to that, whether it's the united states or france, whatever country you are in, that has become part of our normal lives and it has been that way since 9/11. a heavy police presence this time was not something that we particularly noticed. the promenade was shut down as it often is for this kind of event, and still when it hit there was the element of surprise, as heavy as the police presence was, they were not ready for this. >> how could you be, in a way? >> the two americans that were there last night, we are glad you are safe and thank you for your time with us. michael lighter is the director of the national terrorism center. i want to talk to you first. thousands gathered along the promenade and we know there were barricades that were supposed to stop vehicles from
7:09 am
and clearly they did not do that skprbg this truck went for more than a mile. as people get this their cars this morning, think how far a mile is. >> the french are very experienced in dealing with large-scale events like this. they were just prepared and really overwhelmed by threats during the european soccer tournament that just finished there, and in this case what we really see is the difficulty for any, even the best prepared security services to stop a committed individual when you have these enormous crowds of people, and it creates a huge vulnerability. and they look at this to see what they missed but this sort of event creates a vulnerability that is hard for anybody in paris and london or even washington to stop. >> so many people wake up and see it has happened again and they ask themselves, what is a
7:10 am
you are talking about an ideology that is like a cancer that is spreading and how are you supposed to rectify that now, now that that cat is out of the bag? >> savannah, your analogy to cancer is a good within, and the first thing we can't do is duh spire. cases and that means offense, whether it's overseas or in french neighborhoods. it requires defense, better security at events like this. it requires really good education and engagement. that's something the french have struggled with more so than the british or certainly here in the u.s. the french have a disenfranchised muslim population. and the efforts have produced more isolation and more radicalization. we in the u.s. h
7:11 am
the french face a very uphill battle right now. >> all the steps you talk about and others talked about to prevent sophisticated attacks like people hijacking airplanes or creating an explosive device, this is a guy with a gun and a truck. >> this is no doubt. this is where isis has surpassed al qaeda in its brilliant simplicity. al qaeda went big. this is much, much harder. that's why isis change from an organization with a hierarchy and planning to a movement that's spread through the use of social media and encrypted communications, makes this an enormous challenge. it will require even deeper engagement with the muslim communities because those are the only communities that will be able to detect that and get early intervention of the
7:12 am
as always. >> thanks, guys. the attack in nice prompted donald trump to postpone official announcement of his vice presidential pick but nbc we will break down the selection in a moment, but first peter alexander is at trump tower and has more on this. >> reporter: good morning. nbc news and multiple other news outlets reporting donald trump has selected mike pence to be his running mate. trump, ever the showman, still says he is undecided. he will say when it will happen over the course of the day, and family members say it's likely to be this weekend. with french authorities still attending to the dead and injured in nice, donald trump said he would ask congress for a declaration of war on isis. >> this is war. if youoo
7:13 am
coming from all different parts and frankly it's war and we are dealing with people without uniforms. >> hillary clinton calling for the u.s. to strengthen alliances. >> we need to stand strongly with them. >> reporter: the violence overseas punctuating a fanatic 24 hours here at home. after touching down thursday indiana governor mike pence's mow many delayed, the mild mannered midwestern inner holed up at a manhattan hotel, and trump on thursday trying to maintain the suspense. >> i have not made my final decision. >> still sources with direct knowledge of the choice, trump picked pence over christie and gingrich, and took the muslim ban one step
7:14 am
who is of a muslim background and if they believe in sharia, they should be deported. >> trump and pence disagree on the proposed ban. >> muslims being banned from the united states is unconstitutional. >> he praised trump this week. >> you know, donald trump understands the frustrations and the hopes of the american people, like no other american leader in my lifetime since rona ronald reagan. >> reporter: just days before the start of the republican convention, a political fumble. the popular evangelical says not happening. >> it's amazing how fast rumors fly, and that's exactly what it is, a rumor.
7:15 am
asking if donald trump could change his mind about pence, and it would be highly unusual to bring a sitting governor and adding to the urgency, pence has until noon today, that's the deadline to with draw his name from a re-election bid in indiana if he wants to make himself available to be trump's vp. >> when you put it that way, peter, you make a persuasive argument. thank you. let's bring in nicole wallace and bloomberg managing editor, if trump changes his mind, it would be awkward. >> like the rest of the trump campaign. >> let's assume it's mike pence, and people called this an adult and reasonable and safe choice, and what does it tell us about the state of the trump campaign on july 15th, 2016. >> he wants the campaign to be about hillary clinton and some extent about himlf
7:16 am
running mate, and his other two options, chris christie and newt gingrich, either of the campaign can make it about them, and i think he was persuaded going with a safe and responsible choice, and a lot of republicans and consuffervatives. >> can we go back to the process for just a moment. you are a former campaign staffer. what do you make of this. i think we can take him at his word of that's why, and then he says i have not made up my mind and he mentions the other candidates by name. what gives? >> was told as of 5:00 last night he had not made a final, final decision. if you watch the "apprentice" -- >> is he trying t
7:17 am
drama? >> i don't know. i, too, take him at his word but it would not be the first time he altered his campaign course, and the day after orlando, he ripped into hillary clinton's record on foreign policy, and i accept he wanted more focus on this and i think he also welcomed another minute to think it through. >> let's go to the issue and we are looking at the terror attack in nice. pences says it's it's constitutional and offensive, and donald trump has pushed for that, and how does the campaign deal with the difference of opinion. forward? >> there's always difference of opinion when you pick a running mate. >> that's a big one. >> there were big ones between reagan and bush. >> they are
7:18 am
terrorist attack. >> you're onto something that to me i describe as off brand. pence is so off brand. pence endorsed cruz a couple days before the indiana primary, which was the final primary where trump racked up enough delegates to clinch the nomination. trump is so off the trump brand of saying keep your conservative movement to yourself. i support planned parenthood. trump's whole brand is he's going to make the republican party attractive to people who never voted republican before and pence is as traditional republican as you can get. >> pence's brand is also washington is messed up. washington isn't doing what the people want. that's the main message. >> one of the first to embrace the tea party. >> there are differences between them but if it is pence, anti-washington message will unite them. >> mike pence is sitting in a hotel in new york saying waiting. i got until noon. i got until

7:31 am
>> reporter: such a tragedy for france this morning and for the city of nice. people are walking around shell shocked. the death toll stands at 84 right now and we know that two texans are among the dead. they are sean copeland and his 11-year-old son, brodie. they were here on vacation as so many families were enjoying the fireworks. what has become a tradition here on the french rivera, families, tens of thousands come to watch the fireworks and they were caught in the fire last night. the little league team that brodie plays on posted a message on his facebook page expressing their regret saying we are heartbroken and in shock over the loss of brodie copeland, an amazing son and brother who lit up our lives and sean copeland, a wonderful husband and father. they are so loved. as were all of the victims caught in the fire last night.

7:33 am
united states. >> people turn inward and say how should intelligence adjust, how should it be better? and with all due respect with the officials doing their best under extraordinary circumstances, what needs to improve in how do we change our policies to deal with the evolving press? >> over the last decade, savannah, we were focussed on al qaeda, and it was focusing on the targets, the embassies, the trade center, and "the cole," navy ship. we have a whole new mind shift, and it's difficult for agencies to intercept communications because they are not involved with a wide ranging conspiracy. >> seconds after that attack started and the images started showing up

tracking very light showers in areas further to the south. these could clip southern faulkner county. right now in the 70s except for washington and annapolis coming in the low 80s, and a high today in the district of 95. yesterday we hit 98 degrees, the hottest day so far this year yesterday. high in law ray of 91. another news update for you in 25 minutes. for now, back to the "today" show.
8:00 am
it's 8:00 on today. coming up, terror in france. at least 84 people dead, more than 100 others injured as a truck plowed into a crowd celebrating a national holiday. the driver of that truck killed by police. this morning, what we are learning about the victims, including this father and son from texas as tributes pour in from around the world today, friday, july 15th, 2016. welcome back to "today" on this friday morning. another sad morning. >> obviously, following breaking news out of france. bill neely is there.
8:01 am
good morning. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, savannah. last night the street was filled with thousands of people looking up at the fireworks when a truck -- it's still back there behind the white screen, plowed into them at high speed killing dozens. we now know the driver is of tunisian descent and we don't know who has links with but it was an act of pure terror. the 20-ton truck, a driver on a killing spree. there were celebrations on the sea front, and then terror as he drives towards dozens of people. eyewitnesses say he zigzagged from the road to the boardwalk for about a mile. thousands running for their lives. >> and women were screaming and shouting and running for cover. it was horrendous. >> reporter:
8:02 am
bodies every ten feet besides dolls and strollers. dozens died, among them, two americans, a father and son from texas, sean copeland and his 11-year-old boy, brodie. the truck was finally stopped by police bullets, and the windshield riddled and the driver killed, and amid it all a mother and daughter from california. >> we saw people, and we realized, oh, my god. >> they were terrified. we had no idea how close. we didn't know if it was a shooter or multiple people. >> reporter: officials say the driver fired shots from a pistol and he has been confirmed as a 31-year-old man from nice, and a criminal known to police in
8:03 am
but not federal officials. president obama send a message, we stand in solidarity with france, our oldest ally. france is reeling from yet another massacre. the streets early today, almost deserted. >> doesn't seem safe anymore in france. >> reporter: there's no claim yet from any terror group, and france mourning amid more horror. using a large truck as a weapon of war. french security forces had been on high alert for bastille day, but they are stretched and nobody saw this coming almost literally. matt and savannah. >> thank you, bill. in the aftermath of the attack, thousands of people at the celebration raced to get away as far as they
8:04 am
chaos. and let's go to the editor of "the daily beast." everybody was on alert after a string of terror attacks in france over the last 18 months and still nothing could stop this guy with a truck and a gun. what is the mood in france this morning? >> reporter: well, you know, you are always trying to fight the last war and you are always trying to stop the last terror attack, and what you have seen with al qaeda and now with isis, the so-called islamic state, they change their tactics all the time. they are much more imaginative than people give them credit for and use different techniques, for instance, just a few weeks ago, somebody representing himself as working with isis killed a policeman and wife with a knife in front of their
8:05 am
and the massacres on november 13th, we had guns and pistols used, and before that was the "charlie hebdo" massacre, and it has gotten harder to get all the weapons and now the weapon they use is the easiest thing of all, a truck being driven by a delivery man and he takes it into this area here of this broad promenade, and he kills 84 people. >> the president has just said the state of emergency france has been under since the paris attacks might be able to be just wrapped up, and now in light of what happened in nice it has to be continued. what is the response of the intelligence in responding to the new threat?
8:06 am
>> reporter: what they want to do is a state of emergency and with the laws that have been passed over the last wraer is make it easier for police to interrogate people longer, to hold them longer and interrogate them longer and monitor phone calls and especially monitor internet traffic, and basically to use all kinds of invasive techniques that civil libertarians definitely think are a bad idea. the police understand the only way they can stop these kinds of incidents is through good intelligence. you can't put barriers around everything and can't stop everybody from driving around a july 14th or like the july fourth celebrations. you can't do everything that is necessary to stop terrorists all the time, if you have to stop them at the last minute. you have to stop them much earlier on and that's all about intelligence and intelligence
8:07 am
gathering. >> and chris, always interesting to get your perspective. thank you very much. let's turn to natalie now, and following other news of the morning. >> with that unfolding terror in france, it has led donald trump to delay announcing his pick. >> reporter: multiple other news outlets today reporting donald trump has selected mike pence as his vp pick. trump was watching news coverage from his beverly hills home, and he was surprised and irritated that leaks identified pence as his choice came out so early in the day, and pence finally arrived in
8:08 am
midtown hotel not far from us where he remains holed up, and donald trump, as you reported, postponed that official reveal, and his son said it's likely to come at some point over the course of this weekend, and pence as we have been reporting, a former congressman and radio host and he also is very popular among social conservatives. >> peter alexander here in new york, thank you, peter. rolling stone and great grandfath grandfather mcjagger. een dating two years. jagger is 72. he already has seven children ranging in ages from 17 to 45. golfer phil mickelson one shot away from history from the open championship, and no player shot a 62, and mickelson had
8:09 am
chance, and it was this putt. >> oh, give it to him. >> the ball just lifted out, and mickelson can't believe what he just witnessed and he said later, i want to cry. so do we all. the good news is mickelson is still in first place during the second round of the open. you have had that moment many times, no doubt. >> way too many times, yeah. >> come on. >> yeah. >> thank you so much. >> where's a groundhog when you need it. >> we have a lot of heat to talk about and also showers in the midsection of the country and not looking like the last few days of severe weather, and we we are seeing storms firing up in the plains, and all in all not a bad day and the big story will be the heat. temperatures well over 100 from texas all the way in interior california. 80s and 90s in the mid-atlantic
8:10 am
high humidity, so very uncomfortable. wet weather also from the atlantic coast, into parts of northeastern texas, and gorgeous weather out west although temperatures still a little on the toasty side. here's what is happening in your neck of the woods. >> here are four things you need to know about today, highs in the 90s and not as bad as yesterday because humidity levels lower today, and 20% chance of dealing with any rain, all in all really nice this evening. fur headed to the beach, getting out of town, looking nice there as well. 90 today at the beach, on saturday, 85, and sunday a high of 84, and chances of late-day showers and thunderstorms at the beach and here as well. >> thank you very much. coming up, olympic legend, dorothy hammel 40 years later, and she will probably talk about the hairstyle. >> we

8:15 am
>> yeah. >> reporter: it was 1976, the winter olympics in austria, and hammel won the short and long program, taking the gold medal. hammel made an interesting decision, she decided to compete in the 1976 world championships. >> i had been second in the world the two years prior and i never won a championship, and i knew i would always regret it if i didn't try. ision paid off. she won the world championships that year. that's not all. hamill also created a new skating move known as the hamill camel. >> watch her drop it down to the move she invented and she has done it. >> it was my coach who was trying to describe what he wanted me to do. i don't think it's what he had in mind but it stuck to somebody at the rink. hamill, how's your camel? >> and every little
8:16 am
all they wanted was to be you and the hair. we all had it. myself included. >> did you? >> what does that mean to you when you hear little girls come up and say you're my idol. >> it's wonderful. i did the same thing when i was watching other skaters and in the living room with my socks on twirling. it means a lot. >> hamill grew up in connecticut. what was the spark that was, like, i'm going to go for it? >> i was the one who stuck it out. i was just so determined to get better. i think that's why i was able to get to the top. >> after competing in the 1976 olympics and world championships, hamill skated with many productions including ice capades. she's been married three times. >> i didn't knowow
8:17 am
real relationship. i lived a gypsy life. every night a different city. it's really hard to keep a relationship together in that respect. >> but you have now, which is so great. >> i do. i am so appreciative. i think now, better late than never. >> she's been married to john mccaul for seven years. she has one daughter who is now 27 years old. did you ever push her out on the ice and say go to it? >> i never encouraged that. i didn't want her to. >> in 2007, hamill wrote a memoir opening up about her life including her battle with depressi depression. she's shared her battle with breast cancer. speaking of your health, in 2008 you had a scare with breast cancer. you're healthy now? >> i'm healthy now. so far so good.
8:18 am
>> hamill has been an advocate on the ice with her program i skate which allows children with physical disabilities to take to the ice. >> a wonderful way to get youngsters out and to really feel what it's like to be out there and moving around. it was just the magic of someone who is completely not able to walk or move on their own to have that independence and freedom from one little bit of time. >> powerful. >> powerful, yes. >> hamill also runs a retreat for adult skaters. i got to fulfill a childhood fantasy of my own on the ice with dorothy hamill. >> you got it. you got it. you got it! >> you still enjoy the feel you
8:19 am

truck plows through a crowd. janet, good morning. >> reporter: al, there is heartbreak and disbelief here in france right now. 17 hours after this terrorist attack and people are still numb. here's what we know. 84 people are dead. at least 18 are critically >> reporter: we are now being told a number of the dead are likely to be children and teenagers. among the dead, two people from texas. a father and son, sean copeland and his 11-year-old son, brodie, a little league player, and his little league team on facebook expressing condolences to them. this truck barreled through the promenade for a mile. he came through the barricade and at some point police tried to catch up
9:02 am
he is known now as a 31-year-old french t tprefrench tunisian. he was not known to federal authorities here in france, any kind of ties to terrorism. there has been a search of his nice apartment, and there are reports there was an explosive -- a vehicle with explosives found inside. this all happened during the tradition traditional day, and if you do not get here before noon it's hard to find a parking spot and this whole street is turned into a pedestrian walkway, so it's barricaded early and families come here, and i have come here with my children many, many times, and im
9:03 am
the decision not to come last night, and we watched it from my mother-in-law's residence, about nine miles from here. at this point i will tell you there are hundreds of people gathered here, shellshocked, just some of them were here last night and some have come to see where it all happened. the truck is still on the scene behind me a ways back, but it's covered up as is much of the evidence as it's still an active investigation, and this is the third major attack for paris in the past 18 months, and it's heartbreaking. >> i can hear it in your voice the emotion that you must be feeling, the empathy for the people there in nice but the fact that there but for the grace of god, you and your family could have been down there? >> reporter: yeah, i mean, i have to attribute to it that we re
9:04 am
want to come down and find a parking place, and we always come in july to visit my mother-in-law, and the kids love it and we stayed out there, and i feel for the families that made a different decision. >> thank you so much. our prayers and thoughts are with everybody out there. >> yeah, and the reaction from world leaders has been swift as you can imagine. francois hollande spoke to the news calling the act an act of terror. the attack an act of terror. there have been talk by the president he would perhaps look into lifting the state of emergency before the attack in nice. here at home, president obama issued a statement in part saying on behalf of the american people, i condemn in the strongest terms what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack. our thoughts and praise a
9:05 am
with the loved ones and those killed. we stand in solidarity and partnership with france, our oldest ally as they respond to and recover from this attack. as far as the presidential candidates, donald trump postponed a planned news conference about his vice presidential announcement. trump tweeting my prayers and condolences to the victims and families of the terrible tragedy in nice, france. we're with you in every way. hillary clinton said every american stands in strong solidarity with the people of france and we say with one voice, we will not be intimidated. for a deeper understanding of the events that unfolded in nice, natalie is with evan coleman. >> thank you. evan joins us now. former fbi terrorism consultant and terrorism analyst for us here at nbc. let's talk first about what we know in this investigation and where it stands. are there claims of reon
9:06 am
be responsible? >> people think about isis but truth is so far we've seen no claim of responsibility from isis. we've seen no claim of responsibility from al qaeda and no claim of responsibility from anyone. in fact, this morning isis issued their usual morning news brief and they made no mention whatsoever of the attack. they didn't claim it. they didn't even say anything about it. does that mean they weren't behind it? we don't know. it's too early to say. you look at the individual who carried this out. individual of tunisian origin from southern france. this certainly does fit the profile of individuals that have been recruited by isis gone over to syria and iraq for training. one person who apparently carried this out. on the other hand, he had access to explosives. that's rare. that's not something you usually see in homegrown terrorist cells. if this was a homegrown terrorist, he was fairly sophisticated about it. we're waiting to see right now if there's anymore information. in terms of the attack itself, both
9:07 am
encouraged their followers to carry out attacks like this specifically within the last two years in propaganda aimed at westerners. we have to see now what comes out in the next 24 hours. >> what's unbelievable is that france for the last 18 months as janet mentioned three attacks and high high alert because the european cup championship just ended there so howan somebody drive down a busy, crowded street and carry out an attack of this nature with just a truck and loaded with weapons to bear. >> it's very difficult to understand. i can tell you from personal experience my father is from nice, i spent a lot of time in this area, i attended these firework demonstrations, there is security there but you have to understand there are thousands of people there. mostly children and old people because fireworks and music display, it's very, very difficult to secure this. it's an enormous soft target. it's not something that i believe would be apparent to someone i
9:08 am
this area. this is a major community social event that takes place during the summer. every week they have these fireworks displays. they shut down the area in front of the beach. they have thousands of people crowded and they're on the streets sitting in chairs and it's like bowling pins. i hate to say that but that's what it is. this is an individual who knew this area well and knew this target well and given what he did, we can't foreclose the possibility that he did this on his own. it would be unlikely but we can't foreclose that possibility? >> of course you see something like this carried out there and we immediately think that could easily be times square here in new york. crowded with tons of people. a perfect soft target. what do you know about the security situation and is there anything that is of concern right now? >> i can tell you the security in times square is far tighter than anywhere in this area. nice is not considered a terrorist target. a
9:09 am
in new york, the security is far tighter. i think what we have going for us is there are far less american nationals or people living in the u.s. that have been radicalized than in a country like france. we don't know whether the individual who carried out this attack went to syria or iraq. there are a large number of individuals inside france that have been radicalized and some have gone there. some have been radicalized by clerics. some by the internet. the bottom line is that there's a pool of recruits for groups like isis and al qaeda to recruit from both directly and indirectly. so w whether or not this was inspired by them directly or whether it was indirectly over the internet or whatnot, the problem is there are plenty of people for them to latch on to, and it's a social problem within france and something that has to be addressed and it's a statement, if you look at all the attacks, they are all taking place in two countries right next to each other, belgium and france, and there has to be a reason for
9:10 am
>> what needs to happen to change that? what can the french government do? francois hollande talked about lifting the heightened state of security but that will clearly stay in place. >> i think the threat is not over and we have to figure out how this individual was radicalized and was it an issue where he went to syria or iraq and came back into the country undetected and it's not good to think he could have been recruited over the internet, and it's not an easy battle, and every effort the u.s. state department has undertaken more or less than blown up in their face, and we have not been able to figure out a great solution for that and i don't think they have. it's not clear whether or not this is an individual who is part of a larger network, a smaller network or on his own, and nobody claimed credit yet, it
9:11 am
qaeda, but there has been no claimed responsibility, and no statement indicating this would be isis inspired, so we have to wait and see what comes out in the next 12 to 24 hours. >> thank you for putting that into perspective for us. >> al is in the orange room with how people used social media last night. >> people have been using social media to express grief and call for help, which is really amazing. basically, it's translating open door nice, opening doors to people that need shelter, and other folks posting pictures of missing loved ones, and one positive story came out of this atta attack, a woman posted about an 8-month-old baby
9:12 am
we lost our 8-month-old baby, if you seen it, if you picked him up, please contact me. it's not clear what her relationship to the baby was, but the post was shared thousands of times, and a member of the baby's family told the media, a young woman found him and took her home. if it's true, it's a heart warming and what could have been a horrible part to this story. as we look at the weather, another hot day in the east. we have heat warnings and advisories from the carolinas up into philadelphia, and even new york city in parts of new jersey, 15 million people under some sort of advisories. it's going to be a warm weekend here in the east, and temperatures will feel like anywhere from 90 to 105 degrees, and same on saturday, and continues from boston to
9:13 am
sunday, and new york city, washington, all above normal temperatures, and we don't get a break, next week a huge area of high pressure pushes the jet stream up to the north and we will look at the ridge building and heating up a lot of the country, folks anywhere from 5 to 20 degrees above average, and heat index between 110 and 120 in some of the hottest spots. cloudy necessary throughout the day today and we will have increasing sunshine as we head into the midday and afternoon hours, and 86 degrees currently and a high today of 95, and as we head into the afternoon hours we are largely in the 90s, and not as humid as yesterday, and there's a chance of scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms tomorrow, and a high of 91. nice on sunday a. high of 92, and 97 by monday. >> that's your latest weather.
