let's get to our nbc affiliate in minneapolis with the latest. >> good morning. ask anyone here in the twin cities and this venue is part of minneapolis history. last night, the historic nightclub closed its doors after parts of the ceiling came falling down on fans. no word yet on what caused the incident. parts of the ceiling of a legendary downtown minneapolis club came crashing down wednesday night, bringing the show to a sudden end, and sending hundreds of concert goers running. >> holy [ bleep ]. a [ bleep ] water main just broke. >> suddenly, you could see these red lights flashing, and part of the ceiling just, boom, like caved right in. >> the sprinklers came on and everything just fell down. >> witnesses say it happened during a performance by canadian rock band theory of a dead man. they say they saw smoke and then sprinklers turn on near the back of the venue moments before the ceiling fell, causing a water
pipe to burst. >> i didn't know if it was a fire or what happened. then a big chunk fell down. i didn't know if it halanded on anybody. >> first avenue nightclub was quickly evacuated as the fire department investigated the scene. officials say three people were hurt and two were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. many successful artists launched their careers at the popular club, including prince, a frequent performer there in the '80s who also filmed part of his movie "purple rain" in the landmark building. but this morning, concertgoers are remembering their experience at the nightclub for a very different reason. officials say the cause of the collapse is still unknown. so far, club owners are not taking any chances. first avenue has canceled its concert for tomorrow night as well as seventh street entry, which is the next door venue. still no word yet on when first
avenue will reopen its doors for fans. back to you. >> melissa in minneapolis, thank you. in the meantime, the death toll is rising from massive explosions that rocked a port city in northeast china. the blasts were caught on camera. they were so strong they actually registered as seismic events. the rubble from destroyed buildings is still smoldering. kelly has the latest on that. good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. the numbers are staggering and still rising. more than 700 injured, at least 50 dead. and two fires still burning this morning. we don't yet know the cause. officials are being tight lipped about this, but we do know the explosions happened at a warehouse that stores dangerous toxic chemicals, including sodium cyanide and compressed natural gas. a fire so big it could be seen from space.
the eruptions lit the night sky in china. a warehouse storing highly flammable materials exploding not once but twice. the warehouse belonging to a company licensed to deal in hazardous materials, it handled a million tons every year. daylight shows the extent of the devastation. 12 firefighters among the dead. hospitals, emergency services overflowing, trying to cope with the hundreds wounded. the second blast was equal to more than 20 tons of explosives. >> looked out and i saw the plume of smoke. huge plume of smoke. oh, man. >> the shocks felt six miles away. so strong, they registered on a nearby earth quake monster. >> shock waves from the explosion slammed into the building we loved in. >> some dazed residents thought it was an earthquake until they saw the white light. row upon row of cars waiting to
be shipped now just blacken eed metal. tianjin, home to over 11 million, now known worldwide as a smoldering disaster zone. firefighting efforts are on hold while experts figure out what kind of chemicals they're dealing with. the chinese military is volved in search and rescue, but it's not clear how many are missing. fire officials alone say they lost contact with 18 firefighters. matt, savannah. >> kelly, reporting from london this morning. thanks very much. we move to the presidential race, and good news for republican front-runner donald trump. a new poll showing his lead in one key state is expanding. katy tur is here with the latest. good morning to you. >> two months in and trump is defying the odds and the repeated predictions that this gaffe or that outrage must be the end. as of now, trump is only getting stronger. donald trump is surging to his biggest lead yet in iowa.at 22%n
ben carson. his closest competitor in the latest cnn/orc poll. >> i don't want to get overly excited because you can have ups, downs, good days, bad days. the end result is you have to win. >> trump also polling ahead of the republican field on economy, immigration, and terrorism. the billionaire's bickering only seeming to bolster his credibility among supporters. >> mr. trump is bulletproof. >> so far, speaking his mind has been an asset, but privately, some have urged him to focus on the issues. still, the clashes continue. >> in many cases, i probably identify more as a democrat. >> on wednesday, rand paul released an ad blasting him for being a phony conservative. even imitating trump. >> i must be smart. i'm rich. i got to be smart, right? >> trump fired back his positions have evolved, bragging he easily beat paul on the golf course and will even more easily
beat him now in the world of politics. as for how he feels about hillary clinton. >> i don't know frankly that she'll be able to run because it just looks to me that the whole e-mail thing is a very criminal situation and it could cause problems for years to come. >> now the candidate is floating the possibility of sharing the ballot with a woman. >> i would be very, very delighted if there was the right person, but it would be a great honor to have a woman as a running mate. >> he gave no names but has spoken highly of sarah palin in the past, so sources tell me that she's not as of now a contender. of course, though, he's unpredictable. who knows what he will do, say, or decide if he gets there. >> a long way before you pick a vice president anyway. thank you so much. >> you just heard donald trump mention hillary clinton's e-mail controversy. how her campaign is dealing with the latest fallout after clinton turned over her personal server to the fbi. kristen welker has more on that. kristen, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning to you. secretary clinton doesn't have any public events on her schedule today.
but her campaign is still in damage control mode over that e-mail issue. clinton's campaign spokeswoman e-mailingporters wednesday, writing hillary didn't send any classified materials over e-mail. she also stressed there is no criminal probe. now, the clinton campaign has turned over her private e-mail server to the fbi. the inspector general says there were two top secret e-mails in her files. clinton has consistently said any e-mails that were classified were not marked as such at the time she sent them. still, the e-mails have become fodder for republican candidates who say it suggests clinton can't be trusted and polls show it has contributor to the erosion in the public's trust of clinton. one says they have accepting the reality this e-mail issue will be present throughout the campaign. clinton heads to the iowa state fair where she's going to turn the page. joe biden is vacationing in south carolina where he's expecting to consult with family and friends about the possibility of running.
>> thank you very much. former vermont governor howard dean ran for president back in 2004. and served as chair of the democratic national committee. good to see you. good morning. >> thanks, matt. >> you don't have to be a republican operative to find trouble in the headlines surrounding hillary clinton. any time you put the words hillary clinton, e-mail, top secret, and fbi in the same sentence, you've got a problem. do you see any sign that this is going to go away soon? >> well, look, i think it's great that the server's in the hands of the justice department. a lot better than having in trey gowdy's hand. this kind of coverage is what the republicans want. the only thing you didn't say that's in the republican talking points is using the word criminal. there's nothing criminal about any of this. she never did e-mail classified information, not labeled as such. i think she's been truthful and this is an attempt by the republicans to smear the front-runner early on.
this has gone on since white water and vince foster. >> if you look at polling, governor, there are meme who say trust is a problem when they look at hillary clinton. how does she convince them this isn't just another example of exactly what they fear? >> another example of exactly what they fear is exactly what the republicans are trying to do. they have been doing this to hillary clinton back since before her husband was president. i think this is the right course. having the server in the hands of an impartial investigator, the justice department of the united states, is going to be fine because it's going to show there was no criminality, nothing she sent that was identified as classified or top secret and this in fact is nothing but a partisan witch hunt and that's what it is. it's too bad, but i think we'll get through it. it's heading in the right direction. >> if i told you six months ago, bernie sanders would be leading hillary clinton in a poll in new hampshire by seven or eight points, would you believe me?
>> no. look, i'm a hillary supporter, but i think it's great what bernie is doing. i really do. he is, for his whole political career, talked about economic justice. economic justice happens to be the biggest issue for americans on both sides of the partisan divide this election season. i think it's about time. i think the country's in trouble. and i think that is why bernie is doing well. >> let me end on this. if joe biden were to come to you and say, howard, as a former leader of this party and a guy who ran for president in 2004, i'm considering getting in. should i jump in? do i have a chance to win? what would you tell him? >> well, look, i have a lot of respect for joe biden. he's rr been a terrific vice president. the problem is joe biden, he's a very good guy and probably has no appeal whatsoever to people under 35. people under 35 elected barack obama president of the united states. that's a key part of the democratic coalition, along
particularly with latinos and african-americans and asian americans. so i think it makes sense to have a candidate, and i think hillary is one, bernie is another, who really can turn on the under-35 set. i think that would be a problem for joe. so you know, he's served us incredibly well. i just think that it's probably too late for that. >> all right, howard dean. governor, always nice to have you. thank you for your time. >> thanks very much for having me on. i appreciate it. >> we should mention chuck todd is going to have an interview with donald trump this sunday on "mariners pregame." >> meantime, we have been talking a lot recently about drones flown dangerously close to planes, helicopters and leading to urgent new concerns from the faa. >> good morning. reports of these snenlts spiking dramatically, in fact, just another one yesterday in fresno, california, and federal officials say it's time for them to stop. according to the newly released
faa report, there have been 650 drone sightings by pilots as of ag9th this year compared to a total of 2238 sightings in all of 2014. this summer alone, there have been 138 sightings in june and 137 in july. >> the majority of the drones that are causing the problems are hobbyist drones. the people that are flying drones professionally like law enforcement and this kind of thing, they go by the rules. but the hobbyists, they don't care. >> the news comes after a close call on wednesday, where a drone almost hit a medical helicopter carrying a patient in fresno, california. >> we almost got hit by a drone, just to let you know. >> it was probably about 15 feet from the actual aircraft. definitely could take down the helicopter. >> last sunday, the pilots of four commercial airplanes reported seeing a drone in final approach at newark airport. the latest in a series of similar incidents at new york area airports. >> six miles final 2002, 100 off to the right side.
>> land to the right. watch for a drone. >> while firefighters battling this season's historic fires in the west, have ground several times boff othe drones. >> if one of these drones was to go into an engine at a critical period or if one was to strike the windshield of an airplane, the results could be catastrophic. >> experts say all these sightings are likely because many recreational users just don't know or aren't following rules for the drones which say you've got to fly below 400 feet and more than five miles from an airport. obviously, some of the commercial airline pilots are seeing them at 2,000, 3,000, 10,000 feet. people don't know the rules or they're flaunting them. >> it's shocking how many more incidents there are now. natalie is here with a devastating terror attack in iraq. >> good morning. an islamic militants say they're behind the massive deadly attack on a crowded market in baghdad. authorities say at least 62
people were killed and another 125 people wounded after a truck rigged with explosives blew up inside the market this morning. former president jimmy carter says he will undergo treatment for cancer. the 90-year-old made the announcement on wednesday and will be treated in atlanta. nbc's halle jackson is there. good morning. >> good morning, natalie. this morning, thoughts and prayers are pouring in for the former president who said he could reveal new details about his condition as early as next week. president obama called president carter to wish him a speedy recovery, and that support has been just the tip of the iceberg, as folks from the political world to regular folks, even the atlanta braves send their well wishes to the georgia native. carter's cancer was discovered after a surgery on his liver last week, and nbc news has learned within two days of that operation, the former president was back to his normal schedule at his foundation, the carter center. devoited to humanitarian
efforts, he had been set to head to nepal later this year to build houses. not slowing down even at 90, and today, so many are hoping his cancer treatment will be a success so he can get back to doing what he loves. >> we wish him the best as well. halle jackson, thank you. officials investigating the colorado mine spill say it will cost millions in damage and economic fallout to colorado, new mexico, and utah. the epa took full responsibility for the spill on wednesday. this as colorado's governor invited cameras to watch him drink from the animas river in an effort to show the water is safe for rafting, but he warned no one else should drink it. okay. well, parts of the new jersey turbpike were closed after a fiery collision between two tanker trucks on wednesday. drivers passing the burning trucks caught this all on video. incredible explosions with thick black smoke and flames shooting into the sky. the fire gutted both trucks, but authorities say the drivers
suffered only minor injuries. now, dramatic video of a toddler rescue. a warning, it may be tough to watch. a 3-year-old reportedly fell from a window in china and was hanging by his head on the raili railing. the toddler struggled for air as onlookers watched in horror. a good samaritan ran to the balcony below to hold up the boy so he could breathe. the boy's father was then able to pull him inside. he's okay. we often show you amazing baseball plays this time of year, but this may be the catch of all catches. see for yourself. okay, so this happened at wrigley field when ryan braun pops one up there. watch as anthony risso runs into foul territory, into the crowd, over the fans to make that phenomenal catch. he stayed on his feet long enough to get the throw back to the infield. initially the umps ruled they
thought it was a foul play. then they said it was okay and it was in. good for the win. >> do what you have to do. thanks very much. >> mr. roker. >> a lot of heat and a lot of schools go back. so athletics, really very dangerous at this time of year because kids are practicing. according to climate central, we're looking at this. relative humidity over 60% reduces your body's ability to cool off by sweating. when that happens, you have a big problem. why? because exercise, especially in the heat, produces 15 to 20 times more heat than your body at rest. when you do perspire, you increase your risk of heat related illnesses by 3%. when you lose that body fluid. you've got to be careful. look at this, from the panhandle of florida all the way to texas, feels-like temperatures at 100 or better. guess what? rest of the country going to start seeing that heat building. from the dakotas down to texas, then as we move into the weekend, it moves into the
northeast, southeast, mid-atlantic states and all the way into new england by monday. a lot of folks have to be very careful about some dangerous heat. we're going to get to local forecast in the next 30 seconds. w why he's full of energy; but mom and dad know that they're feeding them the complete nutrition of natural balance®. now available at petsmart! we're always looking to bring you the very best in pet nutrition. with natural balance®, part of our family of natural foods, you can give your pets premium quality ingredients. introducing natural balance® at petsmart. save up to 10% on dry and wet food! fill your pet with love. petsmart®. inspired by pets. good morning. i'm meteorologist kari hall. we have clouds, mist and drizzle to start out the day across the bay, and it is in the mid 60s with highs today reaching 72 degrees in san francisco, east bay will be at 83 degrees, peninsula 80 degrees and the south bay topping out into the

ex-husband in europe shocking, illegal, and abusive. adding, it was the most cruel act against a child i have ever witnessed. a turn for the actress' initial reaction tuesday leaving court. >> i have no words at this moment. no words. >> she slept on it and she found a lot of words. unusually personal words. words >> well, she slept on it and she found a lot of words. >> reporter: rutherford questioned the judge's legal understanding of the case saying she violated their rights as american citizens and effectively arrested my children. >> i think it's a risky move to attack a judge personally after you get an outcome you don't like when court systems are set up for appeals, for second chances. >> reporter: the children have lived in monaco with their father, daniel giersch, since 2012 when he returned to europe after losing his work visa. a california court ruled that the children should temporarily live with him there. a judge in monaco allowed the children to spend this summer
with their mother in the u.s. but when she refused to send them back last week, giersch called it kidnapping and a new court battle began. with rutherford's attorney arguing the children have a fundamental right to live in their open country. >> the best thing that rutherford could do is put her head down and get ready for the court hearing in monaco next month. maybe she'll have a chance of getting her children back. >> reporter: rutherford said she'll continue to fight for her children and once again slammed the judge writing, if she has a conscience, i suspect she won't sleep well ever again. the judge did not respond to our request for comment on the letter, but we'll be hearing from another judge, in the case early next month. a custody hearing in monaco set for september 23. >> i don't know, blasting the judge is an unorthodox, legal strategy. >> a lot of emotion involved. no question about it. let's go to a pennsylvania beauty queen who is behind bars after authorities said she faked

>> reporter: investigators say her scheme was so elaborate she convinced family members to drive her to the hospital for treatment where they would wait in the lobby for hours while she hid elsewhere in the hospital. >> so we began the investigation, started contacting the various hospitals that she allegedly was receiving treatment. and in speaking with all the locations, it was discovered she had never received any treatment at any of the locations. >> reporter: the complaint says fund-raisers were held to help with medical bills. police say the most recent event, bingo for brandi held in april, raised up to $14,000. >> she was believable. i had been to a couple of the benefits for her and i never would have questioned it. >> reporter: pageant directors said in a statement that effective immediately, she is stripped of her title and required to return her crown and sash upon her release from being detained. >> i'm shocked. i'm sad. i'm worried about her. i mean, i know there's a lot of people that are angry and i'm angry too.

with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. my theory is pretty simple. happiness, before cleanliness. gooey. flaky. happy. toaster strudel. now with more icing. i acidity was in my diet.ch i was so focused on making good food choices, i had no idea that it was damaging the enamel of my teeth. i wanted to fix it, i wanted to fix it right away. my dentist recommended pronamel. he said that pronamel can make my teeth stronger, that it was important, that that is something i could do each day to help protect the enamel of my teeth. pronamel is definitely helping me to lead the life that i want to live.
