people, was distracted while at the controls. this according to a new ntsb report set to be released today. and what were they thinking? two yellowstone tourists put a baby buy sison in the back of t suv to try and keep it warm. the tragic result. warning to all visitors today, tuesday, may 17th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today". it's a tuesday morning. that is a sad story out of yellowstone. >> it's an involved story. confusing in some areas. the bottom line, don't put a baby bison in the hatchback of your car. our top story, the weather. severe storms hammer the region by a new round of powerful storm systems overnight. kerry sanders is in oklahoma
city. good morning. >> good morning, savannah. it was another sleepless night for residents in the area. violent wind north of here, oklahoma city, registered 69 miles an hour. in felt and durham, oklahoma, two suspected tornadoes touched down. the damage assessments from those tornadoes is yet to be fully calculated. >> reporter: this morning, residents in texas and oklahoma are waking up knee deep in water after a severe weather system walloped parts of the southern plain states. in oklahoma, thunderstorms spawned several tornadoes reported in the oklahoma panhandle. in parts of texas, forecasters say more than 11 inches of rain fell in a 24-hour period in the corpus christi area. the creek cresting over 24 feet. more than four feet above the flood stage. police blocked off major roads, but despite repeated warnings, stubborn drivers tried to make
their way through. only to get swallowed up by rivers of water in the streets. >> the flooding does not evnd. >> reporter: in houston, residents stranded in their homes posted videos on social media. >> no, i'm not on the bank of a river. i'm on the curb of my street. >> reporter: fighting hail and violent winds gusting up to 70 miles per hour, pounded residents in texas. back in oklahoma, heavy winds and rain kept many hunkered down in their homes, as the region braces for yet another cluster of storms today. >> it's been especially violent hail season so far this year. insurance companies estimate they've paid out more than $1 billion in claims. mostly damage to roofs and cars. yes, forecasters are expecting more hail later today in this part of the country. matt and savannah? >> kerry sanders, thank you. >> we were talking, the people in that area that dealt with an
awful lot in the last year or so. >> they're going to deal with more this week. we're looking at more strong storms along the texas-oklahoma border. it's going to continue today. we have 16 million people at risk for strong storms today. especially in the late afternoon into the evening hours. large hail, two inches in diameter, damaging winds. storm system after storm system moving across. the flood threat will increase over the next several days. tomorrow, we have a risk of severe storms. heavy rain for the hill country of texas. look what they've been dealing with. for example, houston in the last 12 months, almost 75 inches of rain. that's 24 inches more than they should see. since march 1st, dallas, 9 inches. 20 in houston. 15 in corpus christi. anywhere from 5 to 10 inches above normal. by the next three days, they're going to pick up another 3 to 5 inches. flooding is going to be a po
problem, besides the severe weather threat. >> we won't be complaining about the chilly temperatures in the northeast anymore. al, thank you very much. two more states hold primaries today as the likely showdown between trump and clinton is taking place. that matchup is getting tighter. our team has it covered. let's start with nbc's kristen welker. she's at clinton campaign headquarters in brooklyn for us. good morning. >> savannah, good morning to you. the race is the closest it has ever been according to our latest nbc news/surveymonkey online poll out today. it shows donald trump cutting hillary clinton's lead down to three points. look at the numbers. 48% to 45%. all this as clinton is still fighting to clinch her own party's nomination. oregon and kentucky weighing in today. >> reporter: clinton campaigning, looking to stop the wins by bernie sanders. clinton is looking past the
primary in the bluegrass today. >> i am hoping and really looking forward to debating donald trump in the fall. >> does donald trump really speak for you? >> reporter: bracing for what donald trump has promised will be an onslaught of attacks, a super pac is set to release $6.5 million in ads hitting trump in battleground states. as clinton paints herself as the steady leader on the economy. >> it's heartbreaking that people running to be president today, most particularly the presumptive republican nominee, want to go back to those failed policies. >> reporter: touting her husband's policies from the '90s, clinton saying she'll put him in charge of revitalizing the economy. the former president telling nbc news -- >> i'll do whatever i'm asked. >> reporter: it's a strategy that's already opened her up to attacks. >> i think hillary is in an impossible box. you know, you can't imagine bill
over there in the east wing, in the spouse's quarters, licking stamps and addressing envelopes. what are you going to do with him? >> reporter: trump is previewing his strategy. top aides telling nbc news he plans to confront clinton on her e-mails and her husband's infidelity. he's opening up tonight on an interview on the fox broadcast network. >> i view myself as a messenger. this is a massive thing going on. these are millions and millions of people that have been disenfranchised from this country. >> reporter: while some republicans looking for a third party candidate, another brash billionaire, dallas mavericks owner, mark cuban, saying he's not interested. >> there's not enough time and it wouldn't work. >> and a majority of gop voters, according to our surveymonkey online poll, trust trump over house speaker paul ryan to lead the party.
58% to 39%. and we're learning this morning that trump is hiring a pollster, something he resisted during the primary, and underscoring his shift to the general election. matt and savannah? >> thank you. let's bring in chuck todd. good to see you. >> good morning, matt. >> let's talk about hillary clinton's idea. if she's elected president, she'll bring in her husband, the former president, to revitalize the economy. it's that two for one deal that we've talked about in the past. when it comes to voters, is there an upside to this and a downside? >> i don't know what the upside is. i think for some, they have positive memories of the '90s. think about what the campaign has been about the last six months. bernie sanders and donald trump, in particular, have been running against the '90s on economic policy, those trade deals, nafta being the biggest one. including wall street deregulation, a major portion of that which happened during the clinton years. i think it is a double-edged
sword. in talking to people close to the clinton campaign, she didn't mean she was going to hand off half the presidency to him and say, you have the economy. apparently, she was trying to say, he was going to be focusing on distressed communities. in kentucky, that's coal country. places there have been a lot of distressed unemployment. >> let's talk about this. the clinton campaign, as well. donald trump plans to confront clinton on the debate stages on things such as her reaction to her husband's infidelity, the e-mail scandal, benghazi. is there any potential downside for him? >> look, there is. i mean, but this is what worked for him during the primary. i don't see why he would go any other way on this front. and if you look -- when you're going after her, character is her weak spot. that's her vulnerabilities. we know the way trump works. he looks for a vulnerability and tries to exploit, exploit,
exploit. i think he may succeed in, say, sidelining bill clinton a bit, but i think it raises the importance of barack obama as a surrogate for hillary clinton. i think over the summer when she's looking for a character witness, she's not going to turn to bill, it'll be barack. >> let's continue with hillary for a second. though the numbers are clearly in her favor, she's still locked in a primary battle with bernie sanders. yet, she's starting to look and vet possible vice presidential running mates. a couple names came up. sherrod brown, the senator from ohio. tim kaine, senator from virginia. are they the front runners? >> i think so. you lock one of those down, the republican path isn't there. and they're do no harm candidates. they're disciplined and very good. from what i understand, hilalar clinton is looking for a governing partner. brown can help with the
supporters. >> former massachusetts governor, and senator corey booker. >> booker is somebody hillary clinton has become comfortable with. likes him. deval deval patrick, somebody she doesn't know well but close to obama world. >> what about elizabeth warren and julian castro? >> i think they get attention in the grassroots. i'll be shocked if they're among the final two or three. >> thank you very much. on monday, we talked about the report from the "new york times" detailing donald trump's history with women. a former model who dated trump for several months in the 1990s and whose story was at the center of the article say her words were mischaracterized. she spoke about it to peter alexander. >> i was promised so many times by them, and to my manager and
myself, just over and over again, that it was a positive article that i was giving them, and that's how it was going to be depicted. it was not a hit piece. it was just each person's rendition of their experiences with donald trump. and mine was -- >> as you say, they spun it into a negative. >> they absolutely did. i don't have a negative story to give about donald trump because i don't have a negative, you know, account of anything. >> spokesperson for the "new york times" responded to the accusations saying she was quoted fairly, accurately and at length. the ntsb is holding a hearing today on last year's crash of an amtrak train outside of philadelphia. killed eight people and injured more than 200 others. we've learned investigators believe the engineer became distracted and didn't realize he was approaching a dangerous curve. tom costello has been following this from the start. good morning. >> they call it losing
situational awareness. you may recall, this was train 188. it'd just left a north philly train station when it went into a turn at double the posted speed limit and derailed. originally, the engineer said he didn't remember what happened. now, investigators say he was distracted by radio traffic from a regional train that had just reported being hit by some sort of an object. a rock or a bullet. much as a driver might be distracted by a phone call, the engineer forgot where he was and blew right through the signs warning him to slow down into the curve. the train was traveling at more than 100 miles per hour when it went off the tracks. eight people died. more than 200 people were injured. amtrak has since added automatic braking technology to the northeast corridor, but it's not in place in much of the rest of the country. back to you. >> tom costello in washington, thank you. the senate is kexpected to vote today on president obama's request for money to fight the
zika virus. lawmakers are considering three plans. the one with the greatest chance to address is a bipartisan plan to cut the president's $1.9 billion request to $1.1 billion. separately, the house is expected to vote this week on a $622 million plan. zika can cause serious birth defects. it is expected to spread more widely during the summer mosquito season. southwest airlines flight forced to return to boston earlier this morning due to turbulence. the flight was on its way to chicago when passengers say the plane started shaking. two flight attendants were injured and taken to the hospital. two passengers also suffered minor injuries. eventually, the flight took off again and has landed safely in chicago. an upcoming meeting is getting a lot of attention. facebook founder mark zuckerberg will sit down with conservative leaders amid claims the social network excluded conservative
news from its trending topics list. miguel almaguer is at facebook headquarters in menlo park. good morning to you. >> morning. it'll happen tomorrow. a handful of conservative leaders meeting with mark zuckerberg. an important step, say those involved, in getting to the bottom of some serious accusations. >> reporter: the meeting at facebook headquarters is private, but this morning, an emerging profile of those planning to attend. conservatives like glen beck, dana parrino and senior adviser to the trump campaign, barry bennet, will all have face time with facebook co-founder mark zuckerberg. >> no one else in the world has the ability to reach as many people as they do. they have a responsibility to play down the middle. >> reporter: it comes after fallout that facebook suppressed conservative stories from its users on its popular trending topics list. >> even the popular websietd we
can't compete with facebook in terms of influence and reach. >> reporter: they say the list is identified by algorithms and only reviewed by facebook employees to make certain they are tied to a current event. but gizmodo says a former facebook employee came forward claiming news curators prevented conservative stories from appearing on the site. >> this was something that facebook wasn't forthcoming about and was actually quite misleading about for the course of a two-year span. >> if they were juicing the algorithm in any way, people have a right to be very angry about that. >> reporter: launching an internal investigation, zuckerberg says the tech giant never aims to suppress political perspectives. he invited conservative leaders for the round table after some say he took a veiled spot at donald trump. >> instead of building walls, we can help people build bridges. and instead of dividing people, we can help spribring people
together. >> reporter: coming together this week, facebook and conservatives. an open dialogue that may also soon be trending. >> zuckerberg says facebook has found no evidence that the claims are true and says he remains committed that the social media site will remain an open platform for all ideas. matt and savannah, back to you. >> miguel, thank you very much. there's troubling news this morning on sunscreen. consumer reports tested dozens of water-resistant sunscreens with spf numbers of 30 or higher. here's what they found. nearly half did not meet their spf claims. nearly 3/4 of natural sunscreens also falling short. if you don't have one of the top-rated products, consumer report says to use a chemical sunscreen with an spf of at least 40. that way, you should get the minimum protection needed. other news this morning. i want to show you a frightening close call caught on surveillance camera. it happened in oklahoma.

near cars and looked cold. >> the rangers took the calf back where the tourists found it but the herd wouldn't accept it. >> we made numerous attempts to put it back with its herd, but the newborn calf kept coming back to the road, chasing cars, trying to get close to visitors. >> reporter: bison, also known as american buffalo, are a huge draw in yellowstone. last week, president obama passed a law to make the bison the country's official mammal. no all tourists are getting the message. viral videos and social media showing people petting wild animals and posing for selfies. sometimes with near disastrous results. >> there you go. >> reporter: federal law prohibiting disturbing or petting animals in the national park. visitors are supposed to stay 25

connected to the same wireless network where your computer resides. >> why would anybody want to hack my doorbell, fridge or thermostat? >> they can use it as a means to access more interesting sources of information. >> reporter: including bank documents, e-mails, everything could be vulnerable. the problem? most homes use wi-fi routers that come with default passwords that are easy to hack. homeowners often don't bother changing them. >> you'll see password, no password, 1234, default. >> reporter: to prove how easily routers can be hacked, i drove to a colleague's home outside of boston. by the time i got to the doorbell, he'd already hacked in. then watched my every move on the in-home security cameras he'd broken into. >> you say you've hacked this house. prove it to me. >> if you just turn to your left a little bit, give the camera a wave. >> you've hacked this camera because the default password was weak? >> that's exactly it. we've been able to use the fact
that it automatically connects to the internet, to get to it from the outside. you have a nice security alarm there. >> you've hacked the alarm system? >> reporter: more concerning, once into the wi-fi, james targeted the computer, tracking all my movements on the laptop. from online shopping to e-mails and bank accounts. >> and the password, denver broncos win 2016. >> so you're seeing everything i type in on my password. >> we can see anything you type, anywhere on your computer. >> reporter: the open back door for the entire house, that wireless router with the weak password. >> so the moral of the story is to make sure your password is not easily hackable? >> make sure you update your devices. keep them up to the latest software version. last but not least, set good passwords. >> yeah, as a reminder, experts recommend at least a 14-character long password. many suggest running words together, like the lyrics of a song, that only you would

massacre" movie. this brought on jokes. joey said he was alive at the start of the tsa security line. jokes aside, the airline for america group says to share pictures of lines with #i hate the wait. this one is from lax. another from atlanta. now, airports are trying to find creative ways to cope with the frustrations. in san diego, travelers are being entertained by clowns. >> that's supposed to help? >> no, this is more terrifying than the actual line. in cincinnati, they've enlisted the help of therapy ponies to bring down the tension. i don't know why you wouldn't pay for the actual tsa people. anyway, the reaction to the strategy sums it up well. okay, now things are just getting weird. that's all i got, guys. i don't know how you follow that. >> isn't the story of the dead body prop that couldn't fit in an overhead, so they had to buy a seat? the entire flight, it was sitting in a seat?

shorter than him, so it makes conner look taller on camera. >> it's awesome when you think about it. if you have an entourage, and i'm sure you do, what would be -- >> i would need a perspective manipulator. >> you are the manipulator in the group. >> i make them look average height. >> it's ably played by danny strong, co-creator of "empire." >> i would have everybody wear glasses. so you can't be like, that's the nerdy one. >> oh, over time, we're totally on the same cycle. >> you think that. >> you wrote the music. as i said, getting critical acclaim. >> thanks for saying that. >> i'll quote from the song, "i'm so humble." i poo poo it when girls say i should model. belly is full from all the pride i swallow. it's poetry.
>> it's poetical. >> it is. did you have the greatest time doing this? you've been friends for years. >> we went to junior high and high school together. to do this is a dream, not ironically. >> now, we have an office and a microphone in the office. we used to have a microphone in the office at "snl." just sort of switched offices. >> did you guys get to boss around andy? you're all producers of the film, but you guys were the directors. >> yeah, that was the main reason for us to actually co-direct. we wanted that title. primarily, to boss around andy. >> being a producer, i could fire back. >> okay, good. >> i think you should take a longer pause there. i'd go, i'm a producer! you take a pause there. there were a lot of hats. >> any more digital shorts coming? we named the greatest hits, the ones we could on morning television. >> we're hoping to get something going in anticipation of the film. >> that seemed like a hint. >> it's cryptic but hintful. >> i'm on the edge of my seat.

like this green tea waffle in las vegas. topped with black sesame chocolate ganache and coconut ice cream. >> people are blown away with the different, complex textures. >> reporter: the kcosmopolitan' bar serves it in cocktails. the mother club uses a house made paired with whiskey and sherry. seaweed topped orange blossoms. >> seaweed grows in different tidal areas. >> reporter: the nutritionist has been singing its praises for more than a decade. >> it has more minerals than practically any other plant. it's healthy in nutrients hard to get, like iodine. >> reporter: seaweed has been a staple in asian diets for centuries. it was used in dpregreek and ro
times as medicine. in scotland, it's been used as fertilizer and food for thousands of years. the salty, sustainable sea plant is gaining new fans today. look no further than social media. it's mention was up 20% over the last year according to foursquare. mentions inspired, no doubt, by the seaweed offers at more than 15,000 restaurants across the country. >> it can be found on the streets of seattle. >> reporter: seaweed on a hot dog. >> at first, it might be sweet because it'st onions. then edema amameedamame, japane tastiness. >> reporter: further proof, the options for this tasty trend are endless. >> jennifer adler, who you saw
there walking on the rocks, leads seaweed 101 classes in the san juan islands near seattle. she teaches people to find and use seaweed. savannah asked for the hot dog. sorry, i didn't bring it. >> looked good. >> we had some in vanvancouver. really good. >> seaweed bacon. >> it's like a health food. >> thanks for bringing all these things for lunch. up next, the coach who helped michael phelps become the greatest olympian of all time. bob bowman's tips for success we can all use. first, this is "today" on nbc.
this guy here, bob bowman, is a legend in the world of swimming. he's coached olympic legend michael phelps into the record books. now he's taken the lessons he learned on the pool deck and put them in a new book, "the golden rules," ten steps to world-class excellence in your life and work. good morning. >> morning, matt. >> will this work with average joes? you're used to dealing with athletes with enormous talent. does it translate to work and business? >> it does. that's why i wrote the book. through any career, i knew people who seemed to be stuck in the place they were. i think it didn't have anything
to do with their vision, but a plan of getting there. i think the ten gnants in the b give nemthem a plan. >> for the sake of timing, let's talk about the few of the steps. one is short term goals lead to long term success. give an example. >> the most important decision you'll make is what you're doing right now. i think these great achievements you might see down the road are really just an addition of small decisions made every day. >> should people write goals down? michael phelps is famous for writing down goals, keeping them private but checking them often. >> you should write it down. commit to it and have a road map. >> adopt an all-in attitude, not a get-out attitude. >> attitude is probably the most important part of the process. a lot of the things you're going to do to achieve success are really money date aundane and o
things. it's the attention to detail that's important. >> what about risk? people think the best way to be successful is slow and steady wins the race. other people take risks. what are you a fan of? >> expanding comfort zone. no growth takes place in your comfort zone. when you're uncomfortable, it's when you'll grow the most. >> you talk about something i love. a lot of people in the work world are put through reviews. they do business or performance reviews. you don't like to look at it that way. >> yeah. >> when you talk to people, you like to do performance previews. explain the difference. >> you're kind of looking at where you are and decide where you want to go together. to me, that's the most important thing. you're obviously going to learn from your past, but you're going to look ahead more. >> i sit down with you as an em ploim y employ y employee and say, where will we go from here? >> exactly. >> give me an example of something you went through that made you stronger.
>> no question, the best example we give, you know, is michael and the beijing olympic games. 200 meter butterfly, goggles fill up with water on the first lap, and he uses lessons we'd learned before, practicing without goggles or broken goggles, to count his strokes and finish on the right stroke. >> you've had a famous up and down relationship. you're a great team, but there have been strained times. how is it standing right now? >> it's never been better. we have a new addition to the family, boomer. actually has my middle name. it's been exciting, and we're very, very close right now. >> lastly on this book and the lessons people in the average world can learn from it, what if they say, the rule s sound grea but michael phelps had a guy like bob bowman standing there, pushing him on. do people need someone to drive them? >> they need someone to mentor them. you can always find somebody in your life who can give you support or guidance when you
need it. >> see you in rio, which we look forward to. my best to michael, as well. >> thanks. >> the book is called "the golden rules." we are going to have much more as we kick off the olympics coming up in august. >> matt, thank you so much. if you've dreamed of social media fame, you're in luck. this morning, we're launching a new series, today's social star search. the goal is to find a new crop of fresh faces looking to make it big online, and find out what makes the big business boom. >> reporter: move over, hollywood, there's a new breed of celebrity in town. they're taking the internet by storm. tweeting, gramming, snapping, recording and vining their way to social media stardom. innovative creators now the voice of a new generation. capitalizing and monetizing free digital spaces, where anyone with a voice and vision can be seen and heard. the big question, how do they do it? we are on a mission to find out.

even though it was 3 degrees in new york. i was listening to a little music, which i normally don't do, and this came on. i probably pedalled faster than i ever have. it gives me -- like doesn't it? >> he was good on "snl" the other night. >> al is looking at me like -- >> wow, doing that on the bike? >> there was a line out there. i'll go back. >> you watch it on tv. >> i can't hear you. >> i think of the taylor swift commercial when she falls on the treadmill and goes backward. >> i love this song. >> college road trip song. >> really? that's the fear i saw in your eyes when i started dancing. >> it was going to be lucas graham, 7 years old. >> thank you. >> it's going to be -- there was one other one.
oh, sei oh, zayn malik, "pillow talk." >> i'm stretching this out. >> it's drake. >> let's keep talking to hear the whole song. >> so good. >> drake and future, so good. let's see what you think of the first story. >> making life, perfect transition. >> beautiful thing every time. see what you think of the way they spread the word. everyone seems to be streaming on facebook live these days. a woman live streamed the birth of her child. this happened yesterday. california couple broadcasting a 45-minute, real time birth video. >> vikes. >> it's the leg that gets me. >> yeah, a bit much. >> baby boy, healthy. it's a beautiful moment. no getting around it. >> lovely. >> as good as it gets there. maybe they could have started the video at that point. >> or just, you know, tighten it in, zoom in more, like that shot from the side. her leg -- listen, and this is
not being critical, but it looks like a chicken wing. >> that's the way it works. >> i've been in that room. >> i hope to join the party one day, and clearly, i need more yoga. that's amazing. >> it is. >> yeah. >> i mean -- >> the sound effects. >> you know what? it's a free country. they can do what they want, if that makes them happy. the thing strange to me, it wasn't just a private account. anyone could get on and watch it. >> was it for educational purposes? >> you did learn something? >> i am the person who -- >> chicken wing. >> -- watches "i didn't know i was pregnant." >> tv show. >> sometimes, i'll confess, i looked at birthing pictures and videos, just because i want to learn more. >> yeah. >> but is it wrong she did it? this is educational for people like me, seeing her. i didn't know your leg had to go like that. i did not know. i swear. >> dad holds one, nurse holds the other. >> and make a wish. >> exactly.
>> look, it's a baby! >> and you get your wish. it's a beautiful thing. >> i think it's a -- >> bam. >> earlier today, you know, it's educational. >> they could have made money by putting a logo there or something like that. >> see how he does that? >> might get me in the parenting game. speaking of strange places to put logos, is it strange the philadelphia 76ers have become the first team in the four major sports to sell ads on the jersey? this was all over social media. stubhub, right there, will have its logo on the 76ers jeer srse. the patch is two inches. part of a three-year, nba pilot program they're doing. before you say no, a lot of european teams sponsor. >> sure. and nascar. >> it's everywhere. >> i think it reminds sports purists of how corporations -- i remember when kaminsky park
changed to u.s. cellular field. >> people get over it. >> yeah. >> by the way, you're in the stands and can barely see the logos. even watching on tv. >> but does it show we're all owned? what if we had to wear, every day, a little -- >> i think it shows the reality, that that's the way it is. al's point, every baseball stadium has a sponsor. you get used to it. i don't love it as a fan, but every european basketball team, soccer teams, nascar. our four major sport leagues are outliers in the world. >> does it bring down ticket prices? >> if they say stubhub, and i get a cheaper ticket. >> crazy. >> crazy lady. when you buy your jersey for your favorite player, do you wear it on you? >> ones they sell in the arena, probably will have it on you. >> would you buy a jersey with -- >> if it's the favorite player,
i'm okay with it. >> why did y'all have me talk about this? >> they're like, it's going to be good. can we hear "jumpman" again? >> logo on your jersey. >> let's say you have this logo on your jersey. would you be thrilled if you're a sponsor, if somebody denigrates you in the jersey? detroit tiger's manager had a meltdown. he confronts the home plate umpire, who ejects him, then he goes nuts. if he had had a logo on there, it'd be blocked off. >> forgive me for some knowing. what does covering the plate do? >> they used to kick dirt. you can't even see the plate. better off without a plate. that whole thing. >> i mean, there were some epic ones before. billy martin. >> i remember martin. kicking the dirt is more dramatic than taking my jacket
off. show you. >> yeah, right. >> you sports people. if you've ever been in a good head wind when walking around, you struggle to walk. check this out. this guy is standing up in winds of 100 miles per hour. >> how do you stand in that? not at the titethered? >> no. >> look at that, wow. this is the top of the mount washington. >> where's the bottom? >> normal wind speed for may is 30 miles per hour. windy days, 50 to 60. mount washington is the highest peak in the northeast. >> that's 100, you say? >> 100 miles per hour. >> that has to hurt, right? >> dangerous. reminds me of that time when -- roll the video -- 2005. hurricane wilma. >> great. >> oh! >> down goes frazier. >> do you remember what you were thinking about that moment? >> i remember thinking, i just wanted to stand upright. i also had just had back surgery. >> oh, gosh.

>> what was, paul, the magic of the show? it was the '90s. you, "seinfeld," and "will and grace." what was it about your show? >> something in the water at nbc that was powerful. it was an idea that was universal. everybody related to it, and people watched it because they went, oh, that's exactly what's going on in my house. helen hunt is fantastic. we just had -- from like the first time we met, we had this kind of -- we saw things the same way, same sense of humor. equally neurotic in different ways at different times. kind of looked like a perfectly married couple. >> you were co-creator but i didn't realize you co-wrote the theme song, as well. >> every other word. >> seems more difficult. >> he wrote that note, and i wrote this note. it's time consuming, don't kid yourself. >> you want to score a film? >> that drummer is jim keltner,
