california. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there are currently 9,000 firefighters in the state of california battling flames that have already left at least 235 people still unaccounted for. you can see some of the worst damage is here in santa rosa, california. entire neighborhoods have been leveled. the fire that caused it still only 44% contained. raging and relentless. overnight, california firefighters battling monstrous flames that have already swallowed more than 5,700 structures across the state and left families shattered, including that of 14-year-old sheppard, who died while trying to escape with his parents and sister, who lost both of her legs. >> we are strong, and we will hold each other. we will pull our collective hope and strength. we will rebuild the sheppards. >> reporter: many who did
it hurts to see it just burn. everywhere is scorched. everywhere. >> reporter: terry reynolds says her kids carried her and her wheelchair through 30 feet of flames. her house destroyed. >> i don't know what to do. >> reporter: now, she's staying in a shelter. >> we need a home, a place to live temporarily. >> reporter: 30 miles away, the p pascos hit in their neighbors pool as the fire burned around them. >> this was the only option. the longer we were there, i said, we are going to be okay. >> reporter: authorities say there are still 17 large fires and more than 200,000 acres burned. the sheriff's department releasirelease ing dramatic images from their body cameras. >> where are you at? >> she's disabled. >> reporter: signs of hope. guy fieri served meals to evacuees f
at a time like this, comfort food makes people feel good. >> reporter: good on one of the worst days of their lives. bay area officials have already issued a health advisory beginning today and lasting through monday because the air quality here is so bad. in fact, they're asking people in areas like this to wear masks that will help them prevent from breathing in the dust and particles from the fire. >> heartbreaking situation. morgan, thank you. dylan dreyer is here now. here's the other part of this story, the wind. >> and that's the problem. i mean, we could really use some rain, but that's not even in the picture. now we just want less wind to deal with out there. because of this area of high pressure, it is continuing to pump in this northeasterly wind. that's a very dry wind for the west coast. that means we aren't going to see any moisture being drawn in, so humidity levels will stay very low. these winds are also gusty, especially in the higher elevations. when you have those gusty winds, it spreads the embers that trigger more fires and help t
fires spread. we have this critical risk to the northwest of sacramento. down through santa barbara, into l.a. the orange areas is an elevated risk because of the stronger winds. northern california, the risk is through this afternoon. southern california, it lasts through at least sunday afternoon. then we could see that get extended as these conditions are not expected to change. relative humidity is about 10% to 20%, but it is the wind gusts near 50 miles per hour that spreads the fires. as we look at the forecast going through the day today and into sunday, we are going to see those wind gusts up around 30 to 50 miles per hour in the higher elevations. elsewhere, 15 to 30. again, there is absolutely no rain in the forecast. we really need some higher humidity. that'll be caused when the winds shift. we need the winds to ease so the fires don't spread as rapidly as they are. >> dylan, thank you. to this morning's other big story now. president trump trying to make a 180 degree turn from the obama era, asking congress to toughen up the iran nuclear deal or
he'll scrap it all together. coming hours after his controversial move that some say could spell the end of obamacare. kelly o'donnell is following all of it. >> reporter: president trump is stopping short of abandoning the iranian nuclear deal he's criticized and leaning on congress to tight p ten the scr against the regime. this comes as allies were urging president trump not to rock this boat. not a surprise. but still a striking development. >> iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal. >> reporter: president trump chipped away at another obama-era policy. the 2015 deal intended to blunt iran's nuclear program. >> we're very unhappy with iran. >> reporter: the president de-certified agreement, asking congress to consider new sanctions and enforcement on iran at
paths to a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: especially to iran's military power, the revolutionary guard. the trump administration slapped sanctions on the group but stopped short of labeling it a terror organization. the move could provoke retaliation. reaction was swift in tehran. friday, a different kind of defense. president and first lady toured the secret service training center in maryland and watched agents on the evasive driving course. that excursion came after the president slammed the brakes on a central part of obamacare. ending government payments to insurance companies that subsidize lower income americans buying health insurance policies. angering democrats while he is trying to court them. >> if the democratic leaders could come over to the white
house, we'll negotiate some deal that's good for everybody. >> reporter: and the timing of the president's decision regarding iran comes just as he faced an october 15th deadline to tell congress if he would certify the agreement. de-certifying puts the pressure on them. the trump administration readily acknowledges that could fail because he would need 60 senators to go along with new sanctions. democrats want the united states to remain in the iranian deal as it exists now, so this is high stakes. it may not work. the president told us on the south lawn that he knows he might eventually just rip up the deal all together. sheinelle? >> kelly, thank you. jeremy bash, a security analyst and former chief of staff at the cia and pentagon under president obama. always good to have you. thank you, sir. >> good morning, craig. >> former secretary of state john kerry helped architect the 2005 iranian deal. he put out a statement yesterday, and he said in part, quote, a reckless abandonment of facts in favor of ego and ideology from a presidento
game of chicken with the congress and with iran than admit the nuclear agreement is working. the leaders of france, germany, the united kingdom, they issued a statement, saying they are committed to the pact. for its part, so did iran, saying they're also committed. what's the truth here, jeremy? was iran abiding by the spirit of the agreement? >> well, iran is supporting terrorism. they are testing ballistic missiles. they're doing dangerous things. but they are in compliance with their obligations to shut down their nuclear program. that's the key here. in effect, the president said, i'm going to get out of the deal even though iran is complying. because iran is a dangerous country, we want them not to have a nuclear weapon, and this deal, so far, was working. >> let's forward here. president trump kicking this over to congress. what are their options going forward? what do you make of the timing of this, with so much going on domestically and internationally? >at
effect, did here was pull the fire alarm and say, everybody get out of the building, when in fact there was no fire. iran was complying with the nuclear deal. now it goes over to congress. congress has a choice. they can do nothing and basically america will stay in the deal, or they can re-impose sanctions on iran. the danger there is iran could restart its nuclear program. as you reference, we have not one but two big nuclear crises. one in north korea. one now in the middle east. >> the treasury department imposing some sanctions on iran's revolutionary guard, as well. is that a move that could backfire, jeremy? >> well, again, iranian revolutionary guard corps, iran's way of supporting terrorism, is a bad organization. they've attacked american forces and done things around the region that are problematic and dangerous. we should clamp down on them. the deal is, craig, we have to keep iran in the nuclear deal so they don't break out and develop a weapon that can

and the stupidity and evil of the subsequent rape of her wife. >> she was seven months pregnant while the couple was kidnapped while backpacking in afghanistan. they were freed after u.s. intelligence alerted the pakistani government the family had been moved from afghanistan into pakistan. >> the operation was carried out on the basis of intelligence provided by the u.s. >> reporter: back in canada, joshua's parents overjoyed. >> haven't stopped smiling, i don't think, since we heard. reality will check in, i'm sure. >> reporter: as the families rejoi rejoice, there are tensions, too. kaitlyn coleman's father slammed his son-in-law for the decision to go to afghanistan in the first place. >> taking your pregnant wife to a very dangerous place, to me, and the kind of person i am, it's
>> reporter: the families reunited but needing time to heal. there appears to be in-fighting over what to do in puerto rico and how to pay for the federal response to the destruction from hurricane maria. it has been more than three weeks now since the storm devastated the island and tens of thousands of residents are still struggling in a mighty way. nbc's gabe gutierrez remains in puerto rico this morning. good morning. >> reporter: craig, good morning. the u.s. house overwhelmingly passed an aide package this week for puerto rico. those who voted against it have concerns. what starts as hurricane relief can expand. it is a longer-term assistant for the financially strapped island. this morning, the three-star general running the military relief effort in puerto rico says hurricane maria is the worst disaster he's seen. >> on the military side, we have everything we need.

devastating for a u.s. territory that was already more than $70 billion in debt. now fears of a mass exodus crippling its tax base even more. at san juan's airport, families are separating as loved ones flee maria's aftermath. this woman is saying good-bye to her daughter, who is traveling to new york to stay with relatives. >> we're having problems right now. i want puerto rico to be the same as before. so she can live here, and study here. >> reporter: the official death toll here in puerto rico remains at 49, but experts say it could be much higher. in a few days, it'll be a month since this storm slammed into puerto rico. more than 80% of the island is without power. about 40% still does not have drinkable water. craig? >> gabe, good question, by the way, to the speaker of the house. good to see you. thank you again. new details emerging in the investigation into that dead ll shooting in las
