>> a severe weather system that caused major damage is on the move this morning. it's headed our way. over the weekend in oklahoma, up to 30 people were occurred when a tornado touched down in tulsa. the storm was moving so fast and changing direction that sirens didn't even go off catching a lot of people by surprise. further south parts of new orleans cleaning up after torrential downpours dumped up to 10-inches of rain in some spots. >> 7:05. let's get a check on what's happening here today. tuck, good morning. >> potentially flooding rain later today as, yeah, pattern's changing up. it's been pretty active around here. >> right. >> typically we go like 90, 95. last couple days -- >> it puts it into perspective, the big easy gets 10-inches, we're looking at 1 inch today. >> one to two. we already had some pretty good rains the last couple weeks. that stays in the soil and so the soil is still pretty saturated. it's not going to take a lot for us to get
going. one to 2 inches is pretty good rain for a one day event. flash flood watch in effect 9 o'clock this morning, counties here in washington, right along the bay, southern maryland, eastern shore all under that flash flood watch. currently 72 in washington. upper 60's dulles and bwi marshall. we are going to be cool today. only in the mid to upper 70's for daytime highs. so, if you're sensitive like my friend, steve, might want to consider a light jacket this afternoon. >> tender vegetation is what we call him. >> we do, we call him tender vegetation 'cause he is. all right, there we go. satellite and radar rain showers moving through. most of this will be pretty light but when i open up for you you're going to see the bulk of our rain showers on the way out into west virginia and it's a warm front stuck across the area with a little area of low pressure riding along it and that combination will give us a wet day today. potentially there could be some thunderstorm activity as well today and when we wrap things up a inch or two of rain is possible for parts of the area and there could be some localized flooding so, you know,us
you're driving later today, there might be ponding on the roadways. seven day in a minute. >> thank you tucker. >> check in with erin see how the roads are. >> 7:06 and we're starting to see some heavier rain. we're seeing big problems on fairfax county parkway out by huntsman boulevard. we have a crash blocking the right shoulder right lane. previously all lanes blocked. watch out for those big delays. again fairfax county parkway had been closed but traffic is getting by in both directions. we do have delays. we'll switch to our other cameras on 395. you can see the rainy commute there will pretty soggy and as you pass duke street after edsall road, we're seeing some slow traffic. it's about a 15 minute delay from the beltway to the 14th 14thstreet bridge. hov lane heavy as well. other issues on the green line as we have been telling outrock work closing the green line stations of branch avenue and suitland through august 20th. shuttle buses replacing trains between naylor road and branch avenue so be prepared for that way. beltwasp
place. use caution as you pass by suitland road slow it down. outer loop 15 minute delay. 95 over to georgia avenue as usual an closer look at 395 you can see all that red. give yourself extra time on 295. we're all jammed up. more traffic in a few. back to you guys. >> erin thanks very much. overseas tillerson giving strong message to north korea. tillerson put renewed pressure on china and russia two of north korea's few allies. >> but i think the world is also expressing a view to china and russia that we do have an expectation that you will do everything you possibly can to help north korea understand the reality of the future as well and bring them to the negotiating table. >> both china and russia voted to support new sanctions against north korea that were approved in the united nations over the weekend. the new restrictions ban the
iron, lead and seafood. they also prohibit countries from increasing the number of north koreans working abroad. vice president pence fighting back against a report he's thinking about running for president in three years. >> the the white house also working to shut down these rumors of a pence presidential run. holly is standing by with the latest. holly, any truth to this report. >> reporter: who knows. it all comes at a time, though, where it seems to never be too early, right, to talk about the next election. pence has spoken out denying a possible 2020 run. so, for now, it really is just all speculation. >> all that i'm preparing for every day is to do everything i can to see president donald trump re-elected in 2020. >> reporter: but is vice president mike pence quietly hedging his bets and actually thinking about mounting his own bid for the white house in three years. he says no. and calls a new york times piece filled with that kind of speculation offensive and white house counselor kellyanne conway
it down. >> zero concerned. that is complete fiction. that is complete fabrication. >> reporter: but the report says it's not just pence, that other ambitious republicans are getting their ducks in a row in case president trump for whatever reason doesn't seek reelection for a second term. and a lot of this may have to do with the ongoing probes into possible ties between the trump campaign and the russia. on the other hand, with presidential campaigns getting longer and longer, some see this as simply a run up for 2024, not necessarily 2020. >> i think it would be political suicide for the vice president to be looking at 2020. so that's why i don't buy thissism i think this is a look towards 2024. >> reporter: the president himself is already working behind the scenes to prepare for his own reelection effort and democrats are going through their own early just ling to field an opponent. the president is weighing in on this one of course. he tweeted jt
the failing new york times which has made every wrong prediction about me including my big election win is totally inept. as for the democrats, only one person has already officially thrown his hat in the ring for 2020 and that's maryland congressman john delaney who has already been on our show. steve. >> holly thanks. alarming report on troops who may be at risk for suicide today. the report from the rand corp says only 30 percent of soldiers with depression received appropriate care. about 54 percent of those with ptsd got the care they needed. >> the city of chicago is set to file a lawsuit against the justice department today over the doj's plan to withhold grant money from so-called sanctuary cities for immigrants. chicago's mayor rahm emanuel says the policy forces the city to choose between its commitment to being a sanctuary city and its need for federal grants. city leaders say new qualifications for public safety grants that r

president trump re-elected in 2020. in australia overnight, u.s. military osprey aircraft that crashed on saturday has been found. the wreckage located after a navy survey ship arrived at the crash scene overnight. three marines were killed when the aircraft went down. we know one is from maine. another from kansas 23 service members survived that crash. 7:31 right now. we all know police officers and first responders have dangerous jobs it is relatively recent development that they are increasingly in danger from the drugs that they handle when they make arrests. last week sheriffs deputy in stafford county arrested two suspect who apparently overdosed near a school. the officer seemed disoriented and treated for possible exposure to the opioid fentanyl. the case put a spotlight on sheriff's department unit called the clandestine laboratory operational group. we asked some of the sheriffs departments and fire marshals offices to tell us more. joining nouse from the
county sheriffs office master detect tj and sutherland with the county fir marshals office g to see both of you this morning. detective i want to start with you. how is the deputy doing who had to go to the hospital because of the exposure? >> he's doing well. he's very lucky. serious incident and he's very lucky to be on the mend right now. he's back at work today. >> i'm glad to hear he's back at work but it had to be a little scary for everybody else who was close to him and people like yourself who deal with these things all the time as to realize when do you have exposure or when you don't. had to be a few nervous members when you found out did he have exposure. >> it definitely was. we nude to say around the office it's not if it's when and actually when became now and in his situation. so it's a first for us here for having somebody exposed like that. but we handled it. he's doing well
team behind us that capable of dealing with this type of situation. >> that's what i wanted to talk about. mr. sutherland i'll bring you in on this as well. the folks standing behind you right now, tell me about that. what they're wearing and what that does to help protect any responders. >> okay. what you're seeing behind me right here you're seeing everybody dressed from a level a to the right of us. this person would be here somebody if we had a gross couldn't tom nation of fentanyl. this is what they would look like as they went in. totally protects them. totally encapsulated. they have a breathing apparatus inside of that end cap sewell laying as you can see. then we can move oh our left. we have our level b. we actually have two level b here one in more of a flam ex type suit the one suit to the left and then more of impermeable membrane suit to the right. they're all beeping, that's a pass alarm
they should have to go down. we would know where to locate them. but notice everything is taped off. they're wearing self-contained breathing apparatus for fresh air so they don't inhale any of the contaminants. then i'll let detective nosal talk about the tactical pouring. if we come down to our last two operators down here as far as our unit, our unit is trained to respond to these dangerous drug hazmat type situations but we also have a tactical side of the unit, too. so the initial entry in most type situations should there be a bad guy inside would be in a tactical type uniform. so our two last operators here are obviously suited up with rifles, with their tactical vests and they're wearing an apr which is air purifying respirator. >> this is -- i tell was detective this is scary next level looking stuff. intimidating just to see thumbs i know it's part of the job, but what do we use this for? is this typically for entering drug labs and
where this came about from the meth lab days. i know it still exists. but now it seems to be changing much latest expose shower was in a vehicle. so when would you break out these suits typically? >> it actually did start, you know, with the clandestine labs from the '70's and '80s and law enforcement started to protect themselves. we do have a situation. we are trained to go into meth labs but we're also trained to go into other labs too, you k know, basic labs such as fentanyl such as pcp, such as lsd, any type of conversion lab, even marijuana is being con converted thc conversion labs. so we have varying degrees of suits. it would depend on what lab or what hazmat environment we're going into what we would suit up in. the fully encapsulated suit at the end is for fentanyl. that's the only suit that we
emergency. when we hit our deputies car the other day we used the one to the left the gray suit to the left that's a level b suit. our guys were all taped up and on air for that when we recover the evidence out of that veh vehicle. >> guys, we'll have to let it go. it's a mazing to see this. last question for you, though, when you talk about fentanyl and that suit on the right which is pretty intimidating, it's intimidating in the fact your oficers have the opportunity to use that but the people that were in that vehicle with the drug had nothing to protect themselves from the exposure. do people even realize how dangerous these drugs are? >> as far as our officers, our officers do. >> i understand your officers. but i'm just saying people that you are using them. do they even have any idea how potent these drugs may be? >> i think the average user does. i think the average user willing to take the risk, tomorrow that's the scary they know out there. >> you're doing great job of protecting your folks who are
gog eliminate that risk to others. detective, thank you so much for joining us, chief, appreciate you joining us as well this morning. >> appreciate it. >> down from stafford county. >> appreciate it. thank you. >> absolutely welcome. thanks thanks oh lot. 7:37. let's check in with tucker barnes. >> steve, rainy monday. flash flood watch in effect. let's get to the maps and show you what's happening here i want to show you radar as well. we'll be in for a wet one for. of the day today. potential for thunderstorms. flood watch in effect 9:00 o'clock all the counties here in green including here in washington flood watch at 9am. 70 very cool degrees out there early this morning many of look at the 50's and low 60s up in pittsburgh. 70 in new york city. 51 this morning in pittsburgh. warm front stuck across the region little area of low pressure rolling along will give us good soaking rain around here today and again the potential is there we could have few rumbles of thunder that drop heavy rain as well. perhaps 1 inch of rain in a few spots up to 2-inches of rain and we already have saturated soils

book now a blockbuster book soon to be blockbuster movie. seven years on best seller lists memoir that takes us on journey with the family of author jenn net walls and she and her siblings that most unusual child mood and decidedly unconventional parents. >> long awaited movie version of the book opens this week i saw the film it stars brie larson naomi watts and woody harrelson and jenn net walls joins us now. good morning to you. i saw the film. i spoke to you in la recently. >> uh-huh. >> for our audience if you can give a basic scope of what this movie is covering because you had a very unconventional childhood. >> i did. i did. i used to write about celebrities for living, and one day i was going to some fabulous celebrity party i saw homeless woman rooting through the garbage i realized it was my mom. i asked a couple days later. mom what the heck am i supposed to tell people about you. tell the truth. we were raised in great poverty but threw our poverty there was hope and love and dreams and that's what this movie is about. >> for so long, you were working -- working the gossip scene in new york.
>> yeah. >> amongst celebrities all the time. appearing on national television writing national columns. behind the scenes did you tell people about your up bringing or was that smug always kept as a secret. >> i kept it as secret. >> why? >> it was ironic here i was chasing other people's secrets and hiding my own. i didn't think people would get it. it's so weird and so compl complicated. the amazing thing is people really get it sometimes they get it better than i do. since my book has come people come and talk to me about their lives and that's one of the neat things lot of people like me out there hiding their pasts. >> when the film came to close and i saw photo of your real dad rex i was so blown away how close woody harrelson looked like him in the younger years. can you talk about how woody harrelson captured your father and what the experience is like for to you watch someone playing your father and you. >> yeah. >> on screen? >> you know woody didn't just capture the way he look it was erie. the degree he captured his personality i talked to him couple of times. he studied a tape. i thought he'd be good. i was completely unprepare
how fantastic he was. i was on the set, and i was watching the scene in which brie larson who plays me is telling wood doo who plays my father she's living west virginia, and the first time i saw it oh, my god i started tripling. i started crying he had the body language down. then they did it on script on the first take they went off script. and woody started saying things that my father had said that i hadn't told him. that's how good he was. that is the degree to which he went inside this man's head. i asked him. how could you do that? how did you know these things? he said i studied the tape and i stopped stitt studying. i didn't want to impersonate i wanted to become him he kind of did. >> the book and now the movie detail about how you grew up in those early years and then you eventually left you went to new york and started this wonderful career on your own. >> um-hmm. >> i know there was a moment in the film where your character is leaving that you said was very emotional for you when you watched that. yeah. why was
>> as much as my fodder father was a no count drunk scoundrel i loved him. i never doubted that he loved me. i felt i had to get away from him. when i left and he beg me to stay, you know, i needed him so much but he needed me. to it was one of those complicated relationships. i was his audience. i felt i was kind of betraying him on some level. >> now when i saw the film and movie and my wife left the theater and having this discussion of good versus bad parking,. >> yeah. >> the movie does put you in that regard as you're watching the film you go, okay, those are some really bad things he's doing much he's an alcoholic. he's doing terrible things at times. >> yeah. >> there are moments where he really pushes you and you are here today because of the way your father raised you. there's a specific scene and i believe we have it right here you're being pushed into the water and there's a dialogue there where your father says, you were born to change the& world and not just add to the noise and also about clinging to the side of the pool. talk about that scene for you. what that swimming moment meant for you. tell our audience briefly what ha
>> well, i was afraid of the water. i was always clinging to the side of the pool, and one day my father called me over and he threw me in the water i thought i was going oh drown. and then he pulled me out, and threw me back in. and i was -- it happened multiple times i thought i was going to drown until i tried to get away from him. and i learn to swim. and i didn't know what the heck was going on. he said sing or swim. you can't cling to the side your whole life. you've got to learn to be independent. and it was an exercise for me in, you know, not trusting hip but trusting myself. little ella anderson who plays me so phenomenally at that age she called me and she said via dumb question. [ laughter ] >> in her little tiny voice. when your father through you in the pool, did you trust him? i thought that's not really a dumb question that's what the whole scene is about the whole movie is about. >> yeah. >> it's, you know, stop trusting me. you've got to be able to trust yourself is what it's about. >> let me ask you this because when the book came out and you said earlier that you really didn't tell a lot
what really happened in your life. when the book came out everybody new. people are looking at you differently they're thinking about your up bringing. that was over decade ago. we're starting that process all over again now with the movie. do you look at your own life differently now? >> you know, it's a funny thing because now that people know the truth about me i thought it would be weird and creepy it's the opposite. complete strangers come up to me say girlfriend you and i could be sisters. [ laughter ] >> they tell me they're stories and it's funny sometimes per perfectly coiffed and they look gorgeous. upon seeing them this person and i have nothing in common that's the great thing about story telling. if you let down your barrier other people will as well unmake these emotional connections and i think that's what story telling is all about. i believe this movie will do that as well. >> we have to wrap this up. when you see the film it's very interesting to watch the journey they were living house to house to house to house and car to car to car and you go back and forth as you feel about your father and your parents. and the film opens up on friday. my wife is hosting a q and a with you tonight in d.c. doing a q and a
