7:03 am
tornado watches for northern arkansas and southern missouri. severe thunderstorm watches. flash flood warnings and watches in effect through the entire area all along this front. the rain is going to continue. you can see the watches and warnings throughout louisville. we will be watching this. we have the risk of severe weather and enhanced risk from jackson, huntsville and lexington. flood watches and warnings and about one to three inches of rain and as it moves to the east the heavy rain continuing and on the back side anywhere from to five inches of snow in upstate new york and northern new england. it calms down by easter sunday but the next 24 hours will be very, very difficult. >> we will be watching it. another big story this morning. how this landmark deal is being received this morning.
7:04 am

7:05 am
analysis and without offering a reasonable alternative, it's the united states that will be flamed for the failure of diplomacy. >> it would block every pathway for iran to build a bomb and put controls over disposing of nuclear fuel. it calls for strict un inspections and in return they will lift punishing sanctions and threatening they will be put back in place if iran cheats. >> we have extraordinary expensive verification measures that have not been applied before. we will have state-of-the-art television cameras within production facilities. >> the foreign minster call period a win-win out come. >> when we implement measures there will be no sanctions. >> regular iranians took to twitter posted selfies after iran's state run tv took the

step of showing a u.s. president's remarks live and unsensored. the clock starts again. the deadline is june 30 for a final agreement. this is complicated stuff as an expert said think of it as honey i shrink the program. the president himself conceded nothing is agreed to until everything is agreed to. >> as is so often the case. chuck todd is moderator of "meet the press." good morning. a lot of people were surprised this deal happened at all, but also that it had as many specifics as it seems to. >> not only that it was better than what it was leading to. that's something of a relief to the administration. they got iran to concede to things. there was concern that the sanctions would get lifted before there would be verification. that wasn't the case. one of the things that is benefiting early on is that this
7:07 am
deal is being announced while congress is not in town. they are all in recess for the holiday and it gives time to sell it without push back. >> i don't know if you agree, but it seemed to me in a way as controversial as the deal is the criticism was somewhat muted. you don't see people falling all over to get on tv or issue these dueling press releases and that kind of thing. are people holding their fire. >> the good friday press strategy. they are not in town. i think some will hold their fire. they want to see how it will play out and see the details. the plan has more details. there is two and a half months before you have the signed and sealed part of the deal. the timing of the announcement is beneficial because so many of the members are out of town. >> the president has to sell it. can congress scuttle the deal as a practical matter? >> they can easily.
7:08 am
you have a lot of skeptical democrats including the incoming highest ranking democrat chuck schumer. he put out a two-page statement who said i will review the details of the agreement. that was not a supportive comment. it's possible to kill the deal. the president can veto an attempt, but there enough democrats to override a veto. the next two and a half months will be critical. >> it's just getting started. we will see you sunday on "meet the press." >> off the coast of north carolina a man missing at sea for 66 days found alive in his damaged sail boat 200 miles from shore. in norfolk, virginia where he sat down with that man and his family. >> louis jordan was missing for two months forced to survive by rationing his food and eating

not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto® you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have
7:41 am
an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. 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®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost. >> 7 time 41 with rossen reports. vacation under cover, how safe are your children when they swim in cruise ship pools? more from jeff. >> good morning to you. the cruise industry markets itself as family friendly fun for all and the pools and water slides are packed with kids.
