7:46 am
it's been a long journey for andrea constand. in april, a second criminal trial ended with a verdict. bill cosby was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, as you probably know. while that felt like a victory for some 60 women who have now made allegations against the comedian, the criminal case all centered on the events of one night and one woman. >> reporter: for 13 years, andrea constand hasn't spoken publicly about the night bill cosby assaulted her. in 2004, she was operations manager for the temple university women's basketball program. he was a famous temple alum and supporter. at the time, she was anxious about making a career change and says cosby invited her to his home to discuss her plans. for months, he had been mentoring her. she later testified in court that cosby offered her something to help her relax. >> he had three blue pills in his hand. >> reporter: three blue pills? >> he put his hand out, and i said, what are those? he said, they'll help you relax.
7:47 am

7:48 am
>> no. no, he said nothing. that i could recall. i was in and out of consciousness. >> reporter: you don't remember being able to speak? >> inside, i was so -- i was crying out inside, in my throat, in my mind, for this to stop. i couldn't do anything. >> reporter: andrea says she woke up hours later and knew what had happened. like many survivors, she felt ashamed and didn't tell anyone, because she thought no one would believe that bill cosby, dr. huxtab huxtable, would do such a thing. >> you really feel her helplessness when she is describing what it felt like. all these years later, you still feel that emotion. >> yeah, and the details. after she woke up, she described to me that he brought her breakfa breakfast. he brought a cup of tea and a muffin. she's trying to process what just happened. she drives herself home, takes a shower, had a good cry in the shower, and then she went to work. >> did she eventually tell anybody? >> she did eventually, a fter a

8:12 am
this morning, a new warning from the national insurance crime bureau. it is timely, too. hurricane season officially kicks off tomorrow. we're already seeing devastating storms like this one in maryland, where six inches of rain fell in two hours. then, of course, there is alberto we've been reporting on ravaging florida and traveling all the way up the coast to north carolina, causing flash floods there. this ridsing water posing a hidden danger to cars long after the storms. major mechanical failures that can cause accidents. those cars then sold on the open market, and the owners never tell you. this morning, the tips you need to protect yourself. the images tell the story. cars floating in treacherous floodwaters. last year's storms were especially devastating. during hurricane harvey and hurricane irma, over 637,000 cars were damaged, engulfed by water. some of those cars ended up here in this flooded car graveyard.
8:13 am
just how many? let's show you. we have our nbc drone up. we're going to bring you up and give you some perspective. believe it or not, this is just a fraction of the flooded out cars from hurricane harvey and hurricane irma. these are only the people that turned their cars into their insurance companies. around here, over 60% of the people don't have any car insurance. experts say they could try to resell these flooded cars on the open market across the country without ever telling you there's a problem. >> obviously from all the dirt and debris, this car has been in a major flood. somebody could come along and for a couple thousand dollars, clean it up and sell it to an unsuspecting driver. everything is great intiuntil t electronics go off. this man bought this 2012 chevy silverado for $14,000 from a licensed dealership in texas. the truck looks pretty good from the outside. >> yeah, really good.

8:15 am
it's damp. >> reporter: the national insurance crime bureau ran the vin number and, turns out, this car was in florida during hurricane irma. this car was in a storm in florida and ended up here. >> yeah. it ended up in texas somehow. >> reporter: this could impact anybody across the country buying a car right now. >> it could happen to anybody. >> reporter: how can you tell if you're buying a flood car? experts say there are telltale signs. >> be on the lookout for condensation. >> reporter: in the lights? >> it's had water in there, yeah. >> reporter: he says there are other clues, too, that a car was underwater. like rust or corrosion on the engine. brand-new upholstery in a used car. or sand and dirt in unusual places. like deep under the seats. too late for kenton, now stuck with this. you don't drive this car, do you? >> i don't drive it ever. it's too dangerous. >> reporter: after i spoke with kenton, i went to the dealership that sold him the car. the manager says they want to do the right thing. the dealership sent an inspector
8:16 am
to examine the car. despite what the independent mechanics found, saying it was a flood car, the dealership says they found no evidence of flood damage and hasn't refunded his money. kenton telling us he is planning on taking the dealership to court. >> that stinks. >> thanks, stepjeff. how about a check of the weather? >> hopefully your car didn't get flooded out. we are watching strong storms out of nebraska, heading into missouri and oklahoma. in fact, we have a risk from the dakotas. also, enhanced risk stretching from missouri all the way into parts of indiana and kentucky, as well. as this system pushes to the east, we have abundant moisture streaming up from the gulf. there is an isolated risk of flooding, tornadoes possible, but mostly strong storms with this front. we're looking from areas in the northeast all the way to the ohio river valley, with flood watches until 2:00 a.m. friday, including baltimore and

8:18 am
>> poor me. we all know the makeup counters. free samples, perfume spray. they're spread out on the ground floor. with the face of retail shifting, saks fifth avenue made over the generational model, calling it the future of beauty. >> reporter: how are you? >> welcome to the beauty floor. >> reporter: this is beautiful. the business of beauty is getting a makeover with stores like saks fifth avenue in new york city revamping its retail space to stay more relevant. for moving makeup counters off the ground floor to going high-tech, it is counting on luxury experiences to lure in loyal consumers. lips are red. including what they're calling magic mirrors, where you can virtually try on everything from foundation to eye shadows. try an eye shadow. >> sure, absolutely. >> reporter: let's do something really crazy. a blue? >> let's go with blue. >> reporter: whoa. you're my trainer? >> i am. >> reporter: another experience? the first u.s.-based face gym. >> face gym is about working out the muscles in the face.
8:19 am
the face has 40 muscles. you don't work them out like you do in your body every day. face gym really helps you get the tighter look on your face. >> reporter: i'm ready to get my face into bikini weather. or one piece. this perfume bar allows you to custom make your very own scent, which i had to try. >> there we go. >> reporter: i've never felt so fancy. at a time when many headlines suggest retail is dead, with popular cosmetic shops like sephora and ulta beauty, and the convenience of online shopping, saks fifth avenue spent $25 million on renovating the store. when you hear headlines like, retail is dead, online shopping has taken over, do you think this is the answer? >> i think you have to make something big to make it different and bring customers in. i walk in here. i feel you've never seen it before. that makes us a destination.
8:20 am
i think that's what gets people off the couch and out the door and into retail again. >> reporter: will betting on beauty pay off? >> in the past, department stores have concentrated on apparel. having an entire floor dedicated to beauty could pose a little bit of risk. however, the beauty industry is a $445 billion industry. >> reporter: in fact, a recent survey suggests millenials actually prefer shopping in stores rather than online. not because of the products or prices but for the extras. saks is banking on its 32,000 square foot space with 15 spa rooms to get a bigger piece of the booming industry. it's not alone. macy's updated its beauty counters, adding new displays where customers can try out products. target also getting in on the trend by adding beauty experts to many of its stores. it's a big gamble, but saks is hoping its massive makeup makeover will help keep up with the changing face of retail.

8:43 am
life. i don't know why i thought it couldn't be that at work. i guess because i was fed this myth. i mean, we all have had an experience, and this proved it. >> i think you're right. sometimes the media wants to see a fight. i think any of us, savannah and myself included on this show, we actually like each other. we like working together. we cheer each other on. savannah and i sat down with a group of you, and we'll show it next week, but we saw that in action. you did become friends. your character is so funny. >> oh, my gosh. >> she's bad. >> so bad. >> did you love playing her? >> yes, i did. it was so much fun. it was so fun to play this ridiculous person who doesn't care about anybody else. >> over the top celeb. >> so over the top. >> did you pull from -- >> it was just so fun. what were you about to ask? >> did you pull from anywhere? >> no, no, i didn't. >> this is a makeup character? >> this is -- i've been in this business for close to 20 years. i've gotten to observe what

8:45 am
you. then there's, you know, micro ones. then there is -- one of my favorite things about what's happening in this moment is that a lot of us are looking at the language we use to choose, becoming more conscious about it. maybe someone thought it wasn't a big deal to say to a 16-year-old -- what happened to me -- congratulations, you got the part. you can't gain more weight. maybe they thought they were giving good advice. now, 20 years later, i'm able to say, i think that could have been done more consciously and loving. it left me feeling confused. i think we're all learning how to communicate. maybe not all of us. a lot of us are taking up this opportunity to become more conscious and more loving in the way we communicate with each other. more compassionate. >> this movie happens to hit -- >> not daphne. >> yeah. >> she's not that. >> this movie is hitting at the perfect time for women. we're so happy for you. >> thank you. >> thanks for coming to see us. >> so good to see you. we figured out how to sit.
