5:02 am
1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to "today." thanks for joining us. i'm krcraig melvin. they're still partying in cleveland but lots of long faces in new york. >> people here in new york holding their breath that we would come back. >> playoffs in full swing. let's get to the top story. hurricane nate set to hit the gulf coast later today. dave price is in for dylan. he's got the latest on nate's path. >> a lot want to know how does this compare to other storms. it's different in intensity and speed and structure. it is a category one storm right now working its way through the central gulf and it is a screamer as we say. this is a very fast moving storm. a category one at this hour. 345 miles south of the mississippi delta. winds now sustained at 80 miles per hour with higher gusts. and as we mentioned, it's moving to the north/northwest at 22
5:03 am
miles per hour but still intensifying with water temperatures 86 to 89 degrees projected to wind up making landfall late tonight into early sunday morning with wind speeds upwards of 90 miles per hour. right around the area surrounding biloxi. then it picks up speed t. begins to break up, but it brings heavy rains at the beginning of the workweek to the 95 corridor from washington to philadelphia to new york. as far as impacts go, 18 million people may be affected by this storm with heavy rains and flash flooding. hurricane force winds, of course. storm surge and rough suffrf. you can see we have tropical storm watches approaching the atlanta area. that's what shows you the breadth of this storm. storm surge warnings from louisiana through the mississippi and alabama coastline all the way to florida. we could see a storm surge of up to 9 feet. we still have hours to go for
5:04 am
potential intense -- >> we'll come back in a few moments. >> hard to believe we are tracking yet another hurricane. people who live along the gulf coast are anxiously getting ready for nate's arrival. kerry sanders is in orange beach. what are people saying out there? >> they are paying close attention. there are volunteer evacuations in this area along the coast in alabama in part because people have recognized the power of nate even before it became a hurricane. as we look into central america, tropical storm nate hammering the area dumping upwards of 15 inches, in some cases you can see here the flash flooding that resulted not only in widespread losses of homes and power outages but also life. up to 25 people have died in central america. among them two children who were near a fast rising river and they were swept away. meantime here along the gulf coast as i go to my west into new orleans area, they have already started sandbagging.
5:05 am
the fears are the low lying areas will be inundated even if there's only as little as 8 inches of rain. that's why in some areas the mayor has called for mandatory evacuations. people need to get out of their homes by noon today. the biggest concern is the electrical system, especially in new orleans because if that electrical system fails the pumps may not be able to get the power they need. they've had problem with backup generators. even on heavy rain days they've had flooding. a lot of attention on the electrical system. all eyes today on what will be basically a day to prepare for hurricane nate. >> all right. kerry, we know you will continue to track it. thank you for. that. >> now to the latest developments in the las vegas shooting investigation. this morning investigators say they are confident there was just one shooter, but they're still far from figuring out why he did it. and if he had any help. nbc's steve patterson is in las
5:06 am
vegas. steve, good morning to you. >> craig, good morning to you. half a dozen days later and we now know the names of all 58 victims. we know their spirit. we know their story. investigators feeling frustrated because they are no closer to know what motivated the man responsible for their deaths. the fbi asking for tips, putting up billboards, searching the area, anything that would lead them to a reason why. >> at the scene of the crime investigators combing for clues but still no closer to answers, following more than 1,000 leads. >> while some of it has helped create a better profile into the madness of the suspect, we do not still have a clear motive or reason why. under sheriff kevin mcmahill tells miguel almaguer he believes the shooter acted alone. >> he was the only shooter. i'm very confident of that. i'm also confident there were no
5:07 am
other people in the room. investigators found 50 pounds of explosive materials in his car. described as a vegas high roller, records from the irs show the shooter earned at least $5 million from gambling in 2015. paddock rained down gunfire for about ten minutes killing 58 and injuring hundreds more. this morning samantha, shot four times, is finally home. >> you'll never know how loud those gunshots were. and i can't watch the news. i can't hear those gunshots because i just imagine being back there again and hearing the screams and the cries. >> reporter: now a community trying to heal. 3,5 35,0 35,0 35,0 35,000 strong gathering at a
5:08 am
church in gvegas. healther visited for her husband sonny. >> there's grief and sadness but also of joy and appreciation for all the people here supporting the ones who lost their lives. >> sonny was hailed a hero shielding heather from the gunfire. the registered nurse saving his wife's life one last selfless act. and later today vice president mike pence expected to touch down here in las vegas. he will meet with city leadership and then he will make remarks to a community trying so hard now to heal. >> steve patterson for thus morning in las vegas. thank you. we want to turn to politics now. president trump is headed to north carolina to speak to republican supporters. this is his administration is getting both praise and condemnation for its decision to allow more employers to opt out of paying for contraception
5:09 am
coverage. peter alexander has more on that as well as the questions swirling around some mysterious comments from the president. good morning. >> good morning. you look good on that big desk. this is a big deal and one that's being celebrated lie religious liberty groups. effective immediately the trump administration rewriting the rules so that more employers can refuse to pay for birth control. a move that could impact a large number of women. >> this morning new fallout from a birth control controversy that means many women could pay more for contraception. the trump administration unveiling new rules allowing more employers to opt out of one of obamacare's key requirements. business is no longer mandated to require birth control coverage free of charge to their employees if they have a valid religious or moral objection. several groups already suing including the state of massachusetts and the aclu. the national women's law center
5:10 am
arguing the rules give employers a license to discriminate against women. president trump's team insisting it's a campaign promise fulfilled. >> we are proudly reaffirming america's leadership role as a nation that protects religious freedom. >> meanwhile the president, a former reality tv star is also introducing a political clip hanger. >> what did you mean by calm before the storm yesterday? >> thank you very much. >> offering a wink and a smile. but no new details of his comment during a reception with military leaders and their spouses thursday night. >> you guys know what this represents? maybe it's the calm before the storm. could be the calm before the storm. >> what storm, mr. president? >> you'll find out. >> his press secretary providing no clarity. >> we're never going to say in advance what the president's going to do.
5:11 am
>> still unclear whether the president was previewing action in korea or iran. or was he just joking? perhaps to deflect from the political storm swirling around his administration after nbc news exclusive report that the president was furious after learning his secretary of state rex tillerson called him a moron. white house aids say president trump still has confidence in america's top diplomat. and to under year the range of national security challenges on the president's and rex tillerson's plate the pentagon as announced that a fourth u.s. soldier was killed in niger. he has not yet been identified. their special forces patrol was ambushed by islamic militants, one more region where americans serve every day in harm's way.
5:12 am
let's start with the story that it is going to allow more employers to opt out. beyond appealing to the base, what's this really about in. >> i think it is interesting because you look at donald trump's actions as president. i think you separate them into two categories. there are the things that only donald trump would do or only donald trump would have done. then there are things that any republican who was elected president in 2016 would have done. this falls into that category. if you look back at those candidates, this was an issue marco rubio talked about -- that is a group we know donald trump likes to reward people who were good to him. i think you see donald trump rewarding loyal constituents.
5:13 am
>> i want to ask you about this crypt i c cryptic comment that the president made. i was there when he said this could be the calm before the storm. i said what storm. he said we'll see. we haven't gotten clarity. there are a number of potential storms. internally he's fusing with his secretary of state rex tillerson. externally with north korea. and he's about to announce a new policy toward iran. which storm do you think he was talking about? >> let me suggest option c. no storm. nothing. i strongly suspect that this is a case that we've seen a number of times in a number of different contexts. in a situation like that he seems to have the insintinct to try it create speuspense, a sen of drama. almost a showman's instinct. and with north korea and all
5:14 am
these other dramas, it creates a lot of i think tension out there. but i strongly suspect in this case that what you're seeing is a president who really is just trying to create a sense of drama without necessarily meaning anything. >> in the wake of the shooting you've got the nra and progrmint republicans embracing the idea of the bump stocks, this device that turns a semi automatic weapon into a machine gun. do you get the sense we are about to start a national conversation about gun control or do you get the sense that this is just a one off? >> if you look at the scope of leg late tiff possibilities when it comes to gun control, this is pretty much on the most limited end of what congress might do if it does indeed go with this ban on bump stocks. what's interesting is the nra appears to be buying into this. they now have sort of their guy into the white house. when you think back to the
5:15 am
newton shooting there was a push for background checks. also barack obama was president back then. i think donald trump has been close to the nra. in they take this small step it won't go further than this. i don't think they had that sense with barack obama. i think you're getting a little bit of weibuy from the nra. >> always good to have your perspective. >> appreciate your insights. some other headlines we want to get to. two soldiers have been killed and others wounded after being struck by a military vehicle. the injured soldiers were rushed to an off sight hospital. officials say two are in critical condition. the army is investigating the incident. vice president mike pence spent friday surveying the damage left by hurricane maria both in puerto rico and the u.s. virgin islands meeting with religious leaders and residents.
5:16 am
describing the wreckage as overwhelming but was moved by the resilience sand also reassured them of the administrations report. it was ri toua return to th baseball diamond for steve scalise. he threw out the first pitch delivering a strike right over the plate. he was injured after being shot at a practice back in june. the catcher one of the officers also wounded in that shooting. i was on capitol hill when he returned and i have to tell you emotions were overflowing and we asked him how does it feel to be back? he said great and i just want to get back to work. >> it was a heck of a toss. >> that's for sure. speaking of baseball this morning the cleveland indians one game away with from moving on. it was a dramatic comeback with
5:17 am
the help of a grand slam. in the 13th the tribe's gomez singled home austin jackson from second base. they win the game 9-8. the indians trying for the sweep against the yankees. wow. sunday night. >> snot over until it's over. >> the indians look good. >> 22 game winning streak. they haven't won since, what is it -- it's a long time. a lot of people say this is the year. >> this is a year for a lot of hurricanes also. this one is fast moving. >> this one is fast moving and we'll take a look at that and the nation's weather. as we take a look at what's happening across the usa, a wintery mix in sections of idaho and montana and wyoming. we have a cold front beginning to move through as we head through sections of the midwest.

5:32 am
other big events. mia is in austin texas where 75,000 people a day are expected for the austin city limits music festival this weekend. what are they doing there? >> good morning. after what happened in las vegas, security isn't just getting beefed up here, but their plans are also getting a second look. experts say this is just the late of the challenge in trying to keep large crowds safe. over the course of two weekends, tens of thousands of people will stream through the gates of the austin city limits festival enjoying music and food all while encountering a strong police presence and added security screening in wake of the mass shooting in las vegas. >> the tragedy is so awful and i think it's on everybody's mind. >> including on the minds of those charged with protecting the large crowds. brian manley is austin's police chief and says the shooting in vegas prompted them to re-evaluate security. >> we did sit down and went
5:33 am
through our plans again, made some modifications, and yes, i am confident that we have security plans in place that will keep this event as safe as possible. >> doing that remains a constant challenge say security experts because the way large crowds are targeted keeps changing over time. from the mass shooting at the orlando pulse nightclub last year to a bomb placed outside manchester arena during an ariana grande concert earlier this year, unprecedented situations much like vegas now serving as another security wakeup call. >> we're going to have to spend a lot more time collaborating with local law enforcement. the planners themselves will have to look at coordinating with adjacent buildings and instruct structures moving forward. >> ven news are stepping up security. but one lesson remains constant. >> if you see something, say
5:34 am
something. >> i think we're always on the lookout because it seems like it's the norm nowadays to really have to do that. >> reporter: another sobering reminder of vegas here. police are asking people at the festival to try and stay sober. that is in case there's a mass evacuation or if they need to get away because of a violent incident. >> the new norm. thank you. dave price is here with another check of our forecast and obviously the word of the day is hurricane nate. >> absolutely. we're watching the gulf right now. let go over to the map, see what's happening and tell you what you need to know as we take a look at nate which is a category one hurricane. it is racing through the gulf right now. where it's headed, well, to the gulf states of course. that's where it's going to make landfall tonight, late tonight or early tomorrow morning. currently located 345 miles south of the mississippi delta. with sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. that could actually strengthen over the next several hours. we'll continue to watch it.
5:35 am
but it's moving through with quite a pace. to the north/northwest to 22 miles per hour. keep in mind when harvey rolled through texas it was meandering at just four miles per hour. that gives smu senyou some sens comparison. the water temperature between 86 and 89. that's why we're anticipating some strengthening before it makes landfall right around the area surrounding biloxi. as it moves through it will pick up additional speed bringing heavy raps ins to the 95 corrid. keep in mind we are going to see storm surge, high winds, and potential flooding. tropical storm force winds extend 125 miles to the north of the center of the core of this storm right now. not a well-defined eye. and hurricane force winds a much narrower area. just about 35 miles per hour.
5:36 am
but it's a dangerous storm anytime you have a tropical storm or a hurricane there are issues attached to that and we are expecting of course this area to be affected by tropical storm force winds or hurricane force winds as it makes landfall to we're seeing 40s and 50s across the map, which is making for an overall chilly start. 50 degrees right now in san jose. hayward at 56 and oakland we're at 53 degrees right now. and along the coastline, we can expect to see breezier to windy conditions. we are expecting a warmer day ahead. temperatures will once again climb into the 80s for san jose by about 11:00 a.m., we'll be about 71 degrees. in san francisco, expect mostly clear skies and temperatures in the 0s. 70s.that's a quick look at weather. keep in mind the hurricane season extends until december 1. >> so we've got a ways to go. >> super storm sandy was -- >> it was late in the season.
5:37 am
>> very late. >> just ahead, my conversation with las vegas residents and eyewitnesses to that mass shooting about how we as a country can come together and move forward now. >> plus why watching a sporting event, that's right, a sporting event on tv may be just as good as exercising. but first, these messages. having moderate to severe plaque psoriasis is not always easy. it's a long-distance run. and you have the determination to keep going. humira has a proven track record of being prescribed for nearly 10 years. humira works inside the body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just four months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal, infections and cancers, including lymphoma have happened as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where

5:40 am
why did a gunman unleash a flurry of bullets on unexpecting concert goers on las vegas. >> it was the latest act in a string of mass shootings that we seem to confront on a regular basis. is there anything that can be done to stop them? i sat down with a group of people in las vegas who were all directly impacted by the shooting in one way or another. we wanted to have the conversation that so many of you have had this week. is it just evil? is it a country too in love with guns and violence? and how should we all move forward? >> where were you and how did you find out and what's the week been like? >> i'm a member of a gun prevention organization, so it was a horrible crazy day. >> i know you were there. >> yeah, i was there. in front of the stage. my buddy to my left got shot and so the night was pretty much saving his life and getting him to a hospital. >> andre, i know you're a vegas guy. >> our community center as a

5:42 am
tourists to shoot guns in las vegas. >> should one person be able to purchase 33 guns in a year? >> well, they don't if they go through legitimate sources, through dealers. if the government says you can't have something, you find a way to get around the law. >> i sat and watched 500 people get mowed down in ten minutes because of this whole concept of machine guns. >> it's not about taking away people's gun rights and what not, but the type of guns that are out there and the way they're being used. what's the purpose behind all that? >> you're a hunter. what is the purpose? >> i live in alaska. guns are part of our life. i honestly -- this has not changed my view on that. it's a tool. >> you hunt with a semi automatic? >> yes. you don't have to sit there and rack another shell and it's quick. ducks fly by quick. when we get back to illegal things, changing your rifle to

5:45 am
impact on these issues and the decisions aren't formed by everyday people. >> we all can agree on some things and we just have to have our voices heard. >> one of the things that they all agreed on is that we do have a tremendous problem in this country with regards to the way we glorify violence. not just guns, but the way we celebrate violence in this country, whether it's tv shows or movies or video games. >> right. >> they all agree that was probably part of it. although this guy, no one thinks this 64-year-old man was sitting in his hotel room playing call of duty. >> that was a tremendous conversation. one of the things that struck me was you spoke to so many different people who had so many different perspectives. i wrote down whole new realm wh which is what michael said and
5:46 am
he's clearly a gun owner. he wants to protect his rights but he said something changed. he's not quite sure what to do about it. >> another woman there who was there with her son also a gun owner and spends a fair amount of time with guns. they talked a little bit about the chasm that exists in country between people who live in rural america and who live in metropolitan areas who may not understand why you would want 12, 15, 30 guns. >> the mom/son team struck me. that really personalizes it. that's why everyone all across the country was struck by this so deeply. to imagine taking your son to a concert, a family event, and having that happen. >> being so helpless. >> that's right. >> mr. price, thank you. thank you very much. we hope it's a conversation that continues all over this country. >> indeed. >> dave, what you got? >> guys, coming up in just a couple of minutes, we are going to put a smile on your face. or at least a smiley face on your phone because we have the newest emojis com better. it's more than just a word.

5:58 am
turned out to remember her. >> one of the things that came to my mind was she was so young, she didn't get a chance to do anything, but looking at this outpouring of support from all over the world and from everyone, showing her love, showing their love for her, i'm so proud of her. >> the family says they're working with the coroner in las vegas to bring vo's body back to the bay area. they expect to hold a funeral next week. scary moments for a construction worker yesterday in castro valley. the worker fell about 15 feet from a bridge into a creek along crow canyon place. rescue crews were able to pull him to safety. he was transported to a local hospital with an injury to his leg, but thankfully, he's expected to be okay. a tribute to a survivor at the site of a sexual assault on stanford's campus. two benches and a fountain have replaced the defumpster where pro brock turner assaulted a woman. a law professor at stanford proposed the project to the

6:02 am
that baby looked like she had something on her mind. >> good saturday morning you to. welcome back to today. i'm craig melvin alongside kristen welker. we have lots to get to this morning. let us start with hurricane nate. that storm gaining strength overnight becoming a cat one hurricane. what's the latest on the path? >> this one continues to gain strength. let's walk over and take a look at it. it sits in the central gulf at this point and really taking in that warm water as it progresses towards the gulf states making landfall tonight, probably late into tonight or early tomorrow morning. it is a category 1 storm. currently situated at 245 miles south of the mississippi delta. the difference now between just about an hour ago, now we have winds up five miles per hour. sustained at 85. movement still very, very quick. to the north/northwest at 22 miles per hour. where does it go? who does it affect and where
6:03 am
does it wind schnuup? let's answer those questions. as it rolls through this water, it's about 86 to nine degrees. it may pick up a few more miles per hour eventually making landfall with 90 mile per hour winds within a few mphs of that number. as it progresses it's going to pick up more speed bringing heavy rains to this area and bringing that moisture to the 95 corridor between boston, new york, philadelphia and washington as we head into tuesday. what do we need to watch out for? well, we are currently keeping in mind that this could have a significant effect with flash flooding, heavy rain, hurricane force winds, tropical storm force winds, storm surge and rough surf all the way through parts of the deep south. as we head through the next several days, we are watching the potential threat for significant storm surge. that's a quick look at nate. we are going to continue to watch this. as we take a look at this storm
6:04 am
because the issue is going to be how this continues to affect not only the gulf states, but where this storm goes as it begins to journey towards the north and east. that is a quick look at the weather picture. we'll send back to you at the desk. >> we'll come back to you in a moment. >> with time running out until nate hits residents, they're getting ready out there. nbc kerry sanders is in orange beach alabama. good morning. >> good morning, kristen. along the beach they do have some volunteer evacuations already in place. let's take a look at the live drone picture. you can see the red flag that is already flying. that is a flag warning people not to go into the water because the surf is kicking up and there are already some rip currents that are out there that could cause some problems for swimmers. with the volunteer evacuations in place, we do know that people are going to have some ruined vacations, but this is of course a serious storm. as we take a look at what nate did in central america even before it was a hurricane.
6:05 am
up to 25 people who had died there in the mountainous regions thr , this water coming with the storm causing dozens of mud slides. in one case two children who were too close to a fast rising river were swept away to their death. there are thousands that are homeless today. power is out. meantime as we come back to the gulf coast and we take a look to the west of where i am in new orleans, they're already sandbagging. the reason they're sandbagging is the mayor in certain areas of the city has mandatory evacuations, people who have been to be out of their homes in those areas by noon today because they do know it is likely to flood. a lot of attention is being placed on the pumping system there and whether the electrical system will hold. the pumping system has failed in recent days and when that pumping system goes down, even with a rainstorm, there can be floods. >> people clearly taking the warnings very seriously. kerry, thank you for that report.

6:28 am
anything, but looking at this outpouring of support from all over the world and from everyone showing her love, showing their love for her, it's -- i'm so proud of her. >> the family says they're working with the coroner in las vegas to bring vo's body back to the bay area. they expect to hold a funeral next week. scary moments for a construction worker yesterday in castro valley. the worker fell about 15 feet. rescue crews were able to pull him to safety. he was transported to local hospital with an injury to his leg but he is expected, fortunately, to be okay. a tribute now to a survivor at the site of a sexual assault on stanford's campus. two benches and a fountain have replaced the dumpster where brock turner assaulted a woman in 2015. it will house a plaque inscribed with the victim's words. a law professor at stanford proposed the project to the university last year. turner was sentenced to six months in jail in 2016. he only served three months. coming up this morning on

6:41 am
60% off from now until october 9 on designer jeans. macy's also have some really good deals on denim. >> my question is are you going to have the selection when you're a little into the season already? >> you will. you absolutely will f. your sizes are a little bit too on the extreme side, you might have even more of a selection. so it's common sizes that might not necessarily always be in full inventory. but definitely go on and check out right now to see what's out there. >> let's go even bigger. let's talk cars. we're getting toward the end of course of the calendar year. so i'm going to say wait for later until it gets closer to the holidays with cars. >> actually right now is a great time to buy cars. there are several times a year where you should buy a car. october tends to be one of them. the deal here is new models tend to come out in the fall, so the dealerships are trying to get rid of those older inventories

6:43 am
have the selection that you want with laptops? >> you should have the selection. there are so many different retailers now from the online e-commerce retailers to some of the big box stores. you don't have to wait in line necessarily to get the laptop that you want. but i think the key with all of this is savvy shoppers know that there's a time of year to buy things. so just know -- do your research and you'll save money. >> great tips. thank you so much. great to see you. makes me want to go shopping. astronauts will be breinging a party of earth with them the party of earth with them the next time they go to out er ♪ ♪ hi! leaving a career to follow a calling takes courage. a personalized financial strategy can give you confidence to take the next step. hi guys!

6:46 am
moon, something the space agency has not done since the '70s. >> there's been a leap in technology. >> as the weather channel dave explains, future astronauts are using all of that technology now to bring their space suits up to date. >> reporter: in the history of space flight, only 24 humans have ever been beyond what's called low earth orbit 1,200 miles up. before astronauts can even think of a trip back to the moon or mars, they'll have to think about packing a chunk of the home planet with them. they need to bring earth's weather along. >> you're in charge of creating the weather here. >> essentially, yes. >> we met an engineer inside the model in which astronauts train before they go up. every space station, every space ship, every space suit for that matter is essentially a bubble of the earth's weather.
6:47 am
the atmosphere on earth provides pressure, carbon scrubbing, radiation shield, water and the temperatures humans need to survive. in space, none of that exists naturally. >> so the things we tend to take for granted simply on earth we have to create all of those in place for the astronauts to have that safe environment. >> it's a very comfortable 72 degrees. average room temperature. >> astronauts like tracy caldwell dyson tell us today's space suits are built with older technology. >> it's rather cumbersome suit and it's large. >> that's right above my nose. >> it's a tight fit. >> wow. i thought you'd have room in here. wow. look at that. >> i was able to experience what it's like to wear nasa's current unit at a space suit factory. you can definitely feel the lower pressure in here. >> i felt if. i felt a pressure change. like a plane coming down. >> exactly. >> just by putting on the glove. >> here at nasa's johnson space center in houston, scientists are already starting to build
6:48 am
prototypes for mars suits. they'll be easier to put on with a more earth like air pressure inside. >> whereas with this design our re-entry suits it's very novel in that you can open up this rear hatch, slide your feet in and slide all the way into the space suit to make it easy to take on and off. >> nasa along with private company are planning on sending astronauts in to space in american space ships starting as early as next year. getting beyond low earth orbit is the next step. >> we're all striving to make space accessible to more than just nasa and its astronauts. so i believe more people will see this. that fraction that gets to see it is going to grow. >> yet no matter where future astronauts go or who they are, they'll have to bring a chunk of home along for the ride. for "today", at johnson space center in houston.
