11:02 am
as the temperature have risen as expected. that's not the last you have seen of any kind of snow. you can see a band of rain coming across philadelphia area right now. the flood watch is canceled from philadelphia southward but still in effect burlington county through montgomery, bucks county, lehigh valley and ocean county, new jersey. the center of the storm you can see here just off the new jersey coastline. we're starting to get more of a north wind instead of the on shore wind. that will diminish any flood threat. this is moving slowly and colder air will come down on the back side of this thing. eventually, we're talking about a changeover to snow but not during the day today. just patchy rain and wind and cold as we go through the day today. temperatures only going up a couple degrees from where they are now. tonight, we're going to start to see a changeover to snow. we will get into the details on that with the seven-day in a few minutes.

ocean, cape may and atlantic. high tide earlier this morning on the ocean. even before that, we found gigantic waves crashing over the rocks and spilling into the street in longport. the ocean looking angry, churned up by the nor'easter and being pushed on the coastline by strong winds, gusting over 40 miles an hour. from there we headed south to cape may county and the wildwood. we were there when the flood sirens sounded in west wildwood to warn residents about the rising waters. some street resembled rivers at that point. i checked with ocean city's head of emergency management a short time ago. he told me so far the water is about seven inches higher than it was during yesterday morning's high tide when we saw minor tidal flooding. don't be surprised if the headaches last for a while. >> within the next two to three high tide cycles we will see flooding. rain is laying down, but we're
11:05 am
expecting more today. >> reporter: that doesn't help the situation? >> it doesn't. obviously with the wind, but it gusts to 45. we have readings on that. be cautious, stay off the roadways unless you have to be out. >> reporter: i've been checking with our communities about road closures in those cities and towns because of the flooding. i can tell you the black course pike in the west atlantic city township of egg harbor township closed because of flooding. that's a very flood prone area and route 47, the causeway between middle township and wildwood also closed right now because of flooding. again, we're still about a half an hour away from high tide. we will have an update for you coming up at 11:30. keeping track of the situation here, talking with officials, an update at 11:30. i'm ted greenberg, nbc 10 news. >> get up to the minute information on this nor'easter by downloading the first alert

weather app. watch our newscast. you also want -- we want to let you know that nbc news will bring us a special report shortly. in fact, we will go to it right now. good morning. the report harsh tactics is being made public. >> dianne feinstein is speaking from the senate floor sharing the first details from a declassified portion of that committee's 6,000 page report. this includes claims that the cia misled congress about the techniques that were being used on detainees, things like water boarding and sleep deprivation. the report alleges it did not provide useful intelligencintel >> we have the general findings. let's bring in andrea mitchell,
11:16 am
our chief foreign affairs corresponde correspondent. some of the headlines are damning. >> they are. i came from a briefing from feinstein's staff on the hill. they conclude that the enhanced interrogation techniques or torture were not effective, that the cia provided inaccurate information about the operation of the program to policy makers of the white house and the public and the hill. the cia's management was flaws. the cia will acknowledge that. the program was also the far more brutal than the cia represented to policy makers and to the american public. the big question that we were asking was what did george w. bush and when did he know it? while he approved the initial authorization for secret prisons back in september, right after 9/11, september 27th in 2001, that he did not know the details of these enhanced techniques or torture until 2006 after a cia
11:17 am
inspector general questions the cia's two directors and they said they never briefed him. there's memos that they asked shouldn't the president know about this and was told he does not need to know. a lot of questions about what george bush knew and when did he know it. he has defended this program that doesn't mean that dick cheney or other people who had been told didn't tell him privately. but there's no paper trail indicating that george bush knew prior to 2006. matt and savannah. >> there's a lot of disagreement on the findings of the report. >> the president weighed in on it this morning, issuing a statement that said no nation is perfect but one of the strengths that makes america exceptional is our willingness to confront our part, face our imperfections, make changes and do better rather than another reason to refight old arguments he said i hope today's report can help us leave these techniques where they belong, in the past. let's turn to jim miklaszeski.
11:18 am
the defense secretary put everyone on high alert fearing this becoming public. >> embassies and marines guarding them are at a heightened state of alert preparing for any kind of backlash. 2,000 marines, part of what are called fast teams in the middle east and the mediterranean to cover the areas in the persian gulf and africa should there be any backlash. i can tell you that u.s. military and dod officials say as of now, there appears to be no specific threat against u.s. embassies, military personnel or military installations anywhere in those regions or around the world at this point. however, in an abundance of caution, they decided to put all of these forces at higher alert. >> thank you. >> let's bring andrea back in. there are cia officials
11:19 am
mentioned in the report. they disagree with the findings. a lot of republicans disagree as well. where do we go from here? >> we are going to have i a minority report from the republicans on the committee, most of the republicans on the committee. john mccain, who had been very angry about torture and fighting against it from his own experiences in vietnam is going to speak after feinstein speaks. i think we're going to have more investigations. republicans, as we say, and the former cia directors violently disagree, vigorous disagree with these conclusions and say the cia was doing what they were told to do. >> thanks so much. you can read the full report on nbcnews.com. more coverage on "nbc nightly news" with brian williams. >> for others, there's more of "today" straight ahead. this has been an nbc news special report.

today say first alert weather day. tomorrow as well. we have a varied type of weather out there because of the nor'easter. rain and wind across the area today. we have had serious coastal flooding. the next thing we looking at is a possible change to snow during
11:23 am
the day tomorrow. you can see the flags blowing hard and the wind is howling out there. the temperature has gone up enough so that we no longer have the icing problem. it's 42 degrees in philadelphia. 18 mile an hour wind. feels like 34 degrees. the temperature well above freezing north and west, even the mow cpoconos it's above fre. temperatures will drop as we go through the night tonight. you can see the center of the storm not too far off of cape may. we're starting to see more of a northwest wind blowing offshore and that means the next low tide at the shore will not produce the type of flooding that we have seen this morning and we're seeing right now. general north wind, 20, 21 miles an hour sustained and some wind gusts now to 30 miles an hour. we have reports of wind gusts to 56 miles an hour, just about an
11:24 am
hour and a half ago. it is a very, very windy day. at the shore, very windy with periods of rain. i-95, pretty similar, periods of rain, no, s rain, not necessarily as heavy. north and west may see changeover to snow. the poconos will see accumulation tonight. flood watch in effect for north and east of philadelphia. that's where the heaviest of the rain is. we're also getting a back side of the storm just in the western suburbs. eventually, as the colder air comes in, some of that could change over to snow. we're seeing a little bit of that up in some of the poconos right now. just in the last few minutes, a bit of a mix with some snow. you can see on the futurecast, periods of rain as we go throughout the day. but the changeover is generally coming after midnight tonight, except for the poconos, it will come sooner.
11:25 am
this is one of the computer models. to give you an idea of what the potential is, predicting up to three inches of snow in the poconos by tomorrow morning and even some as we head down into the north and western areas by tomorrow evening. that is a possibility. here is another model. as we see again, north and west starting in the poconos and there may be bands of heavier snow in some of the western counties, berks county and parts of chester county and the lehigh valley as we go into tomorrow. periods of rain as we go through the afternoon. it's going to be windy, the temperatures not dropping, not yet. then overnight tonight, we start to see a changeover to snow in the poconos and some northern and western areas. snow and rain tomorrow, accumulations are quite possible

11:31 am
just an hour or so ago. now we are seeing a lull, which is a good thing, because they have had too many rain. we are seeing radar echos spinning around, an indication that the storm is pretty strong. we have lost most of the snow and ice in the poconos as the warmer air has come in over the last several hours. western suburbs getting more of a steady rain, and that will continue this afternoon. also, the flood watch for all the counties north and east of the philadelphia area, that includes burlington county, bucks and montgomery county, lehigh valley, central new jersey. the center of the storm offshore. we are starting to see an offshore wind which will eventually let the water go down at the shore. so the future high tides will not produce the type of flooding that we have seen this morning.
11:32 am
we have some patchy areas of rain, but tease wiit's windy an. but not cold enough for snow yet. we do expect a changeover in parts of the area, more on the timing that was with the seven-day in a few minutes. live team coverage continues with ted greenberg who is in long beach township, ocean county. ted, what are the conditions the there? is there flooding from what you can see? >>. >> reporter: yeah, the conditions are changing. in fact, they have changed since we last talked with you at the top of the hour, half an hour ago. at that point, at 11:00, this part of the parking lot where i am standing of this restaurant was dry. there was not water under this car. you can see there certainly is. the water seems to be coming up. this is 82nd street in long beach township. that's the bay at the end of the street. as you can see, it's now in the street. it has overtaken the street. it has gotten higher on those cars across the street as well.

11:34 am
street. the ocean looking very angry, fuelled by very strong winds. we were also in west wildwood, in cape may county when the flood sirens sounded just after 9:00 this morning to warn residents about the rising water. the head of ocean city's emergency management tells me, so far the water is at least seven inches higher than during yesterday's high tide when we saw less serious flooding. all this water could have a tough time receding. >> when the wind holds it in, the tide never lets out. the water just stacks on top of itself. that's why the flooding holds it. hopefully in 24 hours we will be in better shape. >> reporter: speaking of the wind, it has been significant. a 56 mile per hour wind clocked on the northern end of long beach iesland where we are. lots of water and the wind as
11:35 am
the chief was telling us continuing to keep the water in the back bay all along the jersey shore. because of that, the water is really having a tough time and will have a tough time receding. the storm drains can't keep up with the water because there's so much of it. the wind also fuelling the ocean. that will no doubt and has no doubt been causing beach erosion. when we can get to the beach, we are planning to look at that and tell you who we see starting at 4:00. live in long beach township, i'm ted greenberg, nbc 10 news. >> ted, get dry. get up to the minute information on the nor'easter by downloading the first alert weather app. watch our news catch if you happen to lose power. it's a freeload you can get at our website at nbc 10.kovm. breaking news this morning. philadelphia firefighters are mourning the loss of one of their own. the first philadelphia female
