strongest storms will be from the great lakes into the northeast. flood watches are up for northern maine, rainfall amounts anywhere from one to three inches but here's what we're worried about. by midweek period from tuesday night into wednesday, strong storms firing up over the same areas where they've had so much rain already. we're talking about anywhere from another three to five inches of rain, some areas locally, guys, could see another six inches of rain. so far, the first three months of this year have been the costliest in about 20 years over $6 billion worth of insurance claims filed already. and it looks like the month of april and may are going to be just as bad. >> thank you very much. we'll check back in with you. now to washington where a critical budget deal has just been reached after weeks of tense negotiations. if approved, it would fund the government through september. nbc's kristen welker is at the white house for us this morning. hi, kristen, good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah, good

7:11 am
massive destruction in asia. >> reporter: duterte has drawn international condemnation for his brutal crackdown on crime. that has claimed thousands of lives amid his country's ongoing drug war. mr. trump inviting the leader to the white house, marking a change in direction in relations between the two nations. duterte was a vocal critic of president obama, sometimes using crude language to describe the former president when he was in office. all of it comes as the president is down playing the significance of the latest failed north korean missile launch. >> this was a small missile, this was not a big missile, this was not a nuclear test. >> reporter: the unsuccessful launch detected by u.s. military officials early saturday was believed to be a medium ranged land-based ballistic missile, a type that could be used to hit mobile targets like aircraft carriers. trump is not ruling out using force against north korea's kim jong-un. >> if he does a nuclear test i will not be happy. >> does that mean military action? >> i don't know. we'll see.
7:12 am
missiles. >> reporter: the president is raising his rise to power. >> at a very young age, he was able to assume power. a lot of people tried to take that power away, whether it was his uncle or anybody else and he was able to do it so obviously he's a pretty smart cookie. >> reporter: this morning, we're hearing from north korea's foreign ministry responding to the u.s. policy of maximum pressure and engagement by vowing to push their nuclear programs "at a maximum pace." savannah, craig? >> all right, kelly cobiella in south korea, thank you. now to the story we talked about at the top, scary moments on passengers from an arrow plot flight. tom, what did you learn. >> reporter: these injuries are said to be quite severe. two dozen people and the video of the aftermath on board the plane is
7:13 am
of the plane, some of them seemingly unconscious, others moaning in pain. we also are seeing catering carts upended with broken bottles, food strewn about the cabin. the russian embassy in thailand says this happened just 40 minutes before the plane landed in bangkok after a trip in from moscow. passengers who weren't seated were literally thrown to the ceiling when the plane hit clear air turbulence. the injuries are said to involve broken bones, internal and external bleeding, medics met the team on the ground and took 25 people to area hospitals, including babies. there was an aeroflot boeing 777 and thailand is a major resort destination for russian tourists. clear air turbulence can happen literally without warning. it happens when an air mass meets another air mass moving at a different speed almost like two fast-moving rivers meeting and colliding. very difficult to anticipate. it's why flight attendants always say keep your seatt
7:14 am
seat. back to you. >> terrifying. tom, thank you very much. now to more dramatic video showing a massive explosion just moments after a wrong-way crash. this one happened last night on interstate 75 in dayton, ohio. you can see that thick plume of black smoke pouring from the vehicles when suddenly a huge ball of flames shoots into the air there. police say a 30-year-old driver was killed after traveling the wrong way on the highway and slamming into an oil tanker. the truck driver, meanwhile, suffered minor injuries. southbound lanes of i-75 are expected to be closed for the rest of the day. now to the hack attack that has hollywood on edge. cyber criminals managed to steal and then release part of the upcoming season of netflix's popular show "orange is the new black" and now hackers are threatening other studios. miguel almaguer has this story. good morning. >> reporter: the hackers virtually kidnapped unreleased episodes of orang
7:15 am
file sharing site when netflix refused to pay their rand? demands. the fifth season of "orange is the new black" was set to come out june 9 when hackers claiming the twitter handle "the dark overlord" released them to a torrent site over the weekend when netflix refused to pay their rand? . who's next on the list? fox, ifc, gnnat gegnanat geo an?

"a production vendor used by several major tv studios had its security compromised." it's the highest-profile cyber attack since the notorious sony hack in 2014 when sensitive e-mails, celebrity gossip and the movie "annie" were stolen and made public. since then, the major
7:16 am
have beefed up their cyber security but some independent vendors remain a weak link, according to experts. >> this move the hackers made with "orange is the new black" is a warning shot and perhaps we could see more such incidents with other networks and other shows. >> reporter: it appears the hackers may have more shows and movies. the criminals posting "and to the others, there's still time to save yourselves. our offers are still on the table for now." this morning, studios are under attack and this may not be the hollywood ending they were hoping for. and hollywood studios are already on edge because of the threat of a writer's strike which could come as early as tomorrow. the last time there was a strike it cost the industry more than $2 billion. craig and savannah, back to you guys. >> miguel almaguer up early in l.a., thank you. >> mr. roker is back. this is

>> not me. >> you didn't think so? you thought it was going to be a hit? >> absolutely. >> why did you think it was going to be a hit? >> well, it was a great script but the whole environment of shooting something, at the time we were so young and inexperienced. we didn't know what film making was. especially when you're doing scenes and hearing people snickering. you're saying well, this isn't going well. when is the ball going to fall? any way, francis being as clever as he is gets the scheduled change and puts the solozzo scene first so he shows the studio this is what pacino can do. >> coppola's bold style opened the door to a whole new world of film making, both his original masterpiece and its equally acclaimed sequel were rewarded with oscars

8:51 am
recent years, heroin overdoses have tripled. everyone ask what can be done. this documentary focuses on awareness with stories told by the people who tragically understand the problem better than anyone. >> if somebody told me six years ago that i was going to be a heroin addict i would have thought that they were crazy. >> lynn was starting not to get out of bed. that's when i started finding the pill bottles around the house. >> it almost felt like i was the parent. it's like the roles switched where i'd be searching her room for drugs. >> >> reporter: four families, four stories about opioids and their destructive power. >> i felt happy. i felt warm. i felt like it loved me and i loved it back. >> reporter: a raw personal look at the drug epidemic from filmmaker perry paltz in hbo's new documentary "warning, this drug may kill you." >> these are very different families, different stories, different parts of the country
8:52 am
that each of these families, each of these stories began with a prescription from a doctor, a real legitimate prescription for pain. >> reporter: like stephanie, who took painkillers after getting kidney stones as a teenager and then started sharing them with her sister ashley. >> we didn't know what could happen, you know? we thought thought, like, well, our doctor started giving us the -- these painkillers so it can't be that bad. >> reporter: the sisters got hooked. ashley overdosed and died. as did lynn doyle, a mother of three. and bran dan cole, a promising young athlete. >> for the longest time, i couldn't come in his room. it's literally like the day he died. it took me a year to come in and throw his garbage out. >> reporter: just a few of the tens of thousands of deaths a year from overdoses, now a number greater than from car crashes. what do you see is the biggest obstacle
8:53 am
grappling with this epidemic? >> the biggest obstacle in my opinion, without a doubt, is the stigma. the stigma that surrounds the disease of addiction. one of the moms said it so well "when our son overdosed and died, people didn't come around with casseroles the way they do if your child dies of another disease." >> what i think this film helps us do is understand this isn't people choosing an alternative life-style, that these are people truly suffering from opioid addiction. >> reporter: and many people, like those in this film, have little idea of how quickly they can get hooked? >> we know if a patient is prescribed a ten-day supply that one in five patients wind up stuck on opioids long term. >> there's a good chance a lot of us will find ourselves in a position where we are prescribed an opioid for pain. should we be scared of that prescription? >> what we feel is get off these drugs as quickly as you can.
8:54 am
don't keep them in your medicine chest, because that is its own recipe for disaster. producers of the film aren't arguing that opioids are all bad but we need to understand them better and doctors need to write fewer prescriptions. the other key is an attitude change towards addiction and that may be tougher. the stigma is hard to shake and they hope these stories will help shake it a bit. >> wow, just to think that just that brief ten-day supply and it could change your life. stephanie, thank you so much. this documentary airs tonight on hbo. we're back in a moment, this is "today" on nbc. hey allergy muddlers are you one sneeze away from being voted out of the carpool? try zyrtec® it's starts working hard at hour one and works twice as hard when you take it again the next day. stick with zyrtec® and muddle no more®.
