overnight lashing it with incredibly powerful winds and flooding rain. we know half of that island's 3 million residents are without power. >> we are getting our first look at the catastrophic damage where irma first made lfr. nearly every building on barbuda has been leveled. the prime minister says it's rubble this morning. irma bearing down on turks and caicos and bahamas as it rages to the united states. its path appears to be tracking from the east. millions from florida keys to north carolina, that coastline on high alert. >> you want to know what's going on in florida right now, take a look at this. this is a line into the home depot, which opened up at 6:00 a.m. people are lining up to get in and buy supplies. across the street that's the gas station. >> if you want to get in your car to get out of the area you're going to get in a long line to purchase it. >> al has the latest on
florida's track. we'll talk to the governor rick scott about how his state is preparing. let's start with morgan ratford in hard hit puerto rico. good morning. >> reporter: matt, savannah, good morning. elefb reported dead overnight as the hurricane eye moved 55 miles north of us here in puerto rico where many of us spent the night in shelters, cell phones down, lights flickering, and waking up to a morning of destruction. hurricane irma plowing through the caribbean with 185-mile-per-hour winds, leaving a wake of destruction in her path. puerto rico slammed with a one-two punch, pounding rain and howling winds sent residents searching for cover. >> why have you decided to leave and do to another person's house. >> we expecting so close to the sea. >> reporter: the storm roared through a string of small islands on wednesday, including st. martin and saint barts where
fierce winds toppled trees and tossed cars. the small island of barbuda was nearly demolished. >> barbuda is inhabitable. >> in barbuda, they refused to leave their homes. >> translator: my house is made of cement. i feel safe here. >> reporter: most heeded calls to get out quickly coming to shelters like this. this is one of the shelters set up across the islands. you can see families behind me bringing only the clothes they had and necessary items they knew they needed to bring. veronica diaz is one hunkered down in the emergency shelter. what does it feel like? >> practically desperate. you don't know what's going to happen, when it's going to be over. >> reporter: she left most of her things behind unsure when she'll be able to return. >> my clothes, medicines, the
little stuff, necessities, papers. not much. >> reporter: now among the hundreds calling this home. >> the governor of puerto rico is scheduled to hold a press conference this morning to give us a scope of that damage. so far we already know more than a million people here are waking up without power. matt, savannah. >> all right. morgan radford starting us off. thank you. >> al is here. what's the latest track. >> all the models are starting to come into agreement. can you see it is still a monster storm even though it has dropped down in wind speed, it's still a very dangerous storm. take a look at how far out the hurricane force winds extend out. 95 miles from the center of the storm. tropical force winds extend out 300 miles from the center. that's a wide swath. this is the latest on what we have and where we have it. currently still a category 5 storm, 95 miles north of dominican republic moving west northwest at 17 miles per hour. here is what we expect the track
and the effects. the turks and caicos, again, here is where we're really concerned, 175 miles an hour top wind speeds. storm surges up to 20 fajita wall of water of 20 feet that will cause catastrophic damage, 8 to 16 inches of rain. as it moves east on spoke friday night, the bahamas, again, they are going to have the same fate as our friends in the turks and caicos. it is going to be a mess. as we continue on cuba we get a glancing blow. we are looking at landfall sometime sunday morning, early sunday morning right along southern shore of florida. devastating surge, a threat. we've been watching the turn, waiting for the turn to come in as far as it's concerned, as far as irma is concerned. here is what we're looking for. we expect that turn to come in sometime late saturday night into sunday morning.
could take one of three tracks. this eastern track, the worst impact stay offshore for florida wi would landfall georgia, maybe carolinas. the worst would be center track, worst case for florida. devastating wind damage and life threatening storm seshlg urge o sewses at the same time. then this western track which would mean southwestern florida gets the brunt of this with catastrophic storm surge there and widespread wind destruction. if that's not enough, right now for the first time since 2010 we have three hurricanes currently katia which should not pose a threa threat. we don't think this will pose a threat to the united states. we're going to worry about that another five, ten days away. >> the track seems to show if it
comes ashore it comes ashore category 4? >> category 4 storm. maybe a 3 probably a 4 and hangs as a 4 all the way up through much of florida. >> all right, al. stay close, of course, we'll check back in. preparations for this monster form made from florida to the carolinas. this morning new evacuations are being ordered and more shelters opened. florida governor rick scott will join us in just a moment. let's start with nbc's gabe gutierrez in savannah. good morning. >> good morning. this major population center is right now in irma's path. as you mentioned more evacuations kicking in today, the largest in this area in 12 years for parts of miami beach and low-lying areas. this is something so many people closely watching. tens of thousands already evacuated florida keys and people urging people in evacuation zones to watch this storm very closely and get out. this morning florida is bracing for this. the growing fear south florida
will take a direct hit and it could be catastrophic. >> this is serious and we cannot take chances. >> in the keys an exodus, mandatory evacuation orders in effect. >> we boarded up the house and we're hoping for the best. that's all we can do right now. >> the warnings dire. >> if you stay, you think you're a tough guy, then you're on your own. >> reporter: in miami beach where sand is a big draw, they are bagging it up and giving it away. mandatory evacuations there starting today. >> potential tidal surge, 8, 10, 12 feet. you saw what happened in texas. >> reporter: andrew at the time the most expensive natural disaster in u.s. history. the tab for irma could be much higher. >> it looks like it could be something that will be not good. believe me, not good. >> reporter: irma's uncertain path is causing anxiety up and down the southeast coast. in georgia they are sandbagging in savannah. residents of south carolina are stocking up and north carolina
national guard is mobilized. with storm clouds on the horizon, businesses in the sunshine state are pording up and gas is selling out. >> it's a mad house. i don't want to run out of gas on the road. >> reporter: gas buddy.com reports a third of stations in the ft. lauderdale area have run dry. >> i don't think i could be safer anywhere else. >> reporter: meghan lived through andrew and preparing to ride out irma in south miami. >> i'm a little bit scared. i wasn't at the beginning of the week but the panic has set in now and i'm getting nervous. >> reporter: there has been so much high-rise development in this area since hurricane andrew. there have been stronger building codes with that storm. with irma being so powerful, authorities here are warning of potentially catastrophic damage. matt and savannah. >> all right, gabe. thank you very much. >> let's bring in florida's governor rick scott. good morning to you. >> morning. >> good morning. this is an unbelievable
hurricane, big, 185 miles per hour. way bigger than hurricane andrew 25 years ago. we're going to see storm surge. i want to make sure everybody in florida understands the significance of this. it could impact either coast. the storm surge is going to be significant. we can get hurricane winds on both coasts. so everybody needs to listen to local officials about evacuation orders. make sure you have a plan. >> i was looking at the very latest track from the national weather service. they are basically saying that this after devastating the caribbean is going to make landfall somewhere on the southeastern coast of your state. that brings to mind the keys. that brings to mind the intense population center of miami. so how are preparations going there? >> well, we've been evacuating the keys since wednesday. so you can follow the traffic count. people are leaving the keys right now. we've got to continue to do that. we started evacuation yesterday in miami-dade, so we'll continue to follow this. the big thing is on both coasts everybody has to understand,
this thing could move, hurricanes move. we've seen that in the past. we could still impact the west coast. this is going to be bigger than andrew in that we're going to have much more storm surge with this. winds are bigger, storm surge is bigger, the size of the hurricane is way bigger. my biggest issue right now probably is fuel. we put a lot of effort yesterday into trying to make sure we have enough fuel in the state so when people want to evacuate they can. i'm asking people not to take more fuel than you need. we'll spread that around so everybody can evacuate. we'll get everybody out if you follow evacuation orders. >> i wonder about it, in houston there's debate whether or not that city should have been evacuated. how do you decide where you're going to mandatorily evacuate. when you have a storm this big that can cover your whole state, where are they supposed to go? >> i think because of harvey, everybody is more focused on
evacuation. what we're doing is by area, we know based on the storm surge how far inland this water is going to go. we have a pretty good idea right now. it's going to change. just because this track has been consistent, they change all the time. that's what we're doing. we're taking the wind estimates, storm surge estimates, and we're starting to do evacuation orders. we'll be going up the coast as we see this hurricane get closer and closer to our state. the keys are already evacuating, but we're making sure everybody is getting out. we're providing transportation if you don't have it. >> governor, just want people to know, before we went on the air you looked at us and say i hope people listen to you. we know people are going to listen to you. our best to you and the people of florida. >> thank you. >> thank you. thanks, matt and savannah. >> of course we're going to be tracking irma all morning long. take a look also at reports of price gouging ahead of the storm. that comes up in the next half hour. >> lots more to get to including politics and a new political storm with the president.
he stunned republicans when he cut a deal with democrats. nbc's kristen welker with more on that. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. president trump campaigned on making good deals. the white house says the agreement he struck with democrats show he's fulfilling that promise. some republicans say the president got a raw deal and may have given the minority party the upper hand. this morning the picture that says it all. president trump in a quasi embrace with the senate's top democrat and fellow new yorker chuck schumer after an oval office meeting wednesday he defied his own party to strike a deal with schumer and house minority leader nancy pelosi. it provides hurricane relief, raises the debt limit and funds the government for three months even touting his former rivals on "air force one." >> chuck and nancy would like to see something happen and so do i. >> reporter: republicans had wanted a longer deal on the debt limit, to take it off the table
in november but democrats refused. multiple sources familiar with the exchange say at one point the president because the off his own treasury secretary who argued for a longer time line. frustration mounted for gop officials when the president called his daughter ivanka in the room to discuss her key issue, child care tax credits. a top congressional source says republican lawmakers ultimately felt blind-sided by the deal. >> did he blind side members of his own party? >> they should realize this is a president who made very clear one of his first priorities at the moment is to get the hurricane survivors what they need and deserve. >> reporter: senate majority leader mitch mcconnell weighed in after. >> the president can speak for himself. his feeling was we needed to come together, to not create a picture of divisiveness. >> reporter: all of it comes amid new fallout after the president rescinded obama program known as daca which protects young undocumented
immigrants, giving congress six months to fix it. now attorneys general from 15 states and d.c. are suing the trump administration arguing the move punishes people with mexican roots and hurts local economies. >> when bullies step up, you have to step to them and step to them quickly. >> reporter: wednesday the president was pressed to clarify his position after tweeting if congress doesn't act, he may revisit the issue. >> i want to see what happens in congress. i have a feeling that's not going to be necessary. i think they are going to make a deal. >> reporter: this morning the russia probe is back in the eldest son trump jr. will be on capitol hill meeting with senate investigators behind closed doors about that meeting he had during the campaign with a kremlin link attorney. it comes after facebook identified roughly 3,000 so-called troll ads. those are fake accounts created by a russian company with ties to the kremlin. it's all adding to the growing picture of russian interference in the u.s. election.
kristen, matt. >> a lot of headlines from the white house. thank you. >> talk about another issue facing the president. that's tension on korean peninsula. today's russian president vladimir putin says he believes the administration is willing to solve the situation with north korea. speaking at an economic forum in russia, putin called on all of north korea's neighbors to show rerestaurant saying rhetoric and military drills playing into their hands. reiterated moscow's opposition to more sanctions to the north korean regime. >> let's get to good news now. it will be an all american affair tonight at the u.s. open in new york city. madison keys punched her ticket to the semifind, won in straight sets and will face american coco vandeweghe. the other match against sloane stephens. the four american women have reached the semifinals in the

>> that's sickening, disgusting, unacceptable and we're not going to have it. >> reporter: a stern warning to price gougers from florida's attorney general vowing to go after businesses selling basic commodities at inflated prices. >> i can do $1,000 per fine up to $25,000 and hurt them. i can also and will destroy their reputation as well. >> reporter: as anxious residents in florida discover water and other supplies difficult, if not impossible, to find in stores, they turned for the first time in a crisis like this online to amazon prime. accusations of price gouging soon followed. price gouge much? one person tweeted. with a photo of 24 pack of pear for $34.99. wow, poland spring water, $13.99 for one gallon. seems kind of steep, amazon. tweeted another, #pricegouge. >> what do you now say to amazon. >> please don't take advantage

direction. winds will curve along western edge of that bermuda high. plus we've got weak low pressure that's helping draw this to the north. if that happens, we're going to be looking at slightly more of a northerly track. we've been talking about the categories of this. category 5 storm, category 4 storm. what can happen during these categories? let's take a look at show you. category 1, 74 to 95 miles an hour, damage minimal, plants and trees, unanchored mobile homes. category 2, 126 miles an hour roofing materials, doors, windows start to take a beating. category 3, 111 mile an hour, extensive damage to small buildings, mobile homes can get wiped out. 130 miles an hour category 4, damage becomes extreme, roof, structure failure, trees get blown down. 155 miles an hour, category 5, catastrophic damage will occur all over the area.

on their star quarterback tom brady. "today" national correspondent craig melvin in foxborough at gillette stadium. good morning to you. >> good morning. what an incredible year tom brady has had, if you think about it. comes back, wins super bowl, then his championship jersey gets stolen from the locker room, then his health is questioned. tonight brady tries to do something no quarterback has ever done and the odds of him doing it are long. but there's a guy you don't want to bet against, it's probably tom brady. when tom brady takes the field tonight he'll face a question bigger than any opponent. can the star quarterback go where no other has gone before and lead his team to a sixth super bowl victory? but the big number on the mind of many fans isn't 6, it's 40. brady celebrated his 40th
birthday last month and says he hopes to play another five years, unchartered territory for starting nfl quarterback, but brady has defied the odds before. >> patriots win the super bowl! >> in february overcoming a stunning 25-point deficit, the most ever in super bowl history, brady, the game's mvp, his wife giselle going wild. starting in controversy, with brady serving four-game suspension for his role in deflategate scandal. he finally uncovered the missing super bowl jersey after it was stolen from the locker room by a journalist from mexico. and public scrutiny of his health, when his wife claimed brady has suffered multiple

sunday night football night in america, chiefs versus patriots, tonight nbc, 7:30. of course it's a thursday night. it doesn't matter, it's always sunday night right here on nbc. guys. >> missed that so much. now to a different approach to growing food and eating food. it's taking organic farming to a whole new level. that's the reason maria shriver is here. good morning. >> good morning. i feel supported on all front. wow. welcome to beyond organic as savannah said. just as shopping, eating and growing organic has become more popular, there's now something new and it's called biodynamic. it's actually an ancient closed loop method of farming that plants and harvests according to the cycle of the moon. it differs from organic in its lack of pesticides and emphasis on soil health.
proponents believe it holds the key to a healthy mind, healthy body, and healthy spirit. on 26 acres tucked well into the malibu hills is a place where wild things grow and roam. there's squash, radishes and cilantro. there's also eleanor, romeo and waffle. it's called one-gun ranch. you'll find no guns here just rescued animals and a lifestyle called bioorganic. >> it's our passion and world. >> they own and run one gun ranch, a place where they practice the ancient mark of bioorganic growing. a way of harvesting food from the earth. >> we don't use any chemicals, any pesticides. it looks at the farm itself as its ownentity. everything used is recycled back
to the land. prior focus on bio-organic farming is soil and soil health. >> this is what makes the magic happen right here. >> the super soil is the magic. they make it themselves using a 100-year-old recipe, feeling it with medicinal herbs and letting it cook for nine months before use. the results, simple food bursting with flavor and nutrients. >> you can taste it. >> taste the difference from our food, anybody else's. >> strong. >> it's strong, it's peppery, vibrant, alive. >> they grow for the local community, some of the names you've heard of. >> wolfgang puck takes all our passion fruit. >> and also for another purpose. lou for everything you're growing here, everything you're eating, everything you're selling really as food as medicine. >> absolutely. >> all of these plantings have medicinal properties to help people physically and/or
mentally. >> completely, 100%. >> the soil is so nutrient rich that ucla used it in community and medicinal gardens as part of their healthy campus initiative. separately one gun ranch has begun to grow marijuana high in cbd, medically rich portion of cannabis plant for cancer treatment. she knows everyone doesn't have access to one gun ranch lifestyle but she believes everyone can be conscious of what you eat. >> anyone can connect to good food. >> she's written a book designed to educate people about the benefits of biodynamic life. she invites groups to the ranch to learn about where food comes from. >> we work with a lot of schools and a lot of charities and children who don't necessarily have the best start in life. >> she knows exposure creates reality. for children who have never seen the ocean, a farm animal, or
know where their next meal is coming from, the impact is immediate. >> usually healthy food doesn't taste good. it tasted like really good. i've never had roasted watermelon. >> the carrots were the bomb. >> tacos were delicious. >> lettuce tacos are good. >> not confined in a room. you can imagine coming someplace like here is extraordinary for them. >> it's a very beautiful place. i love it. >> you're trying to teach a new generation of kids, kids who might not ever have been to a place like this, about what's in their food and think of food in a different way. >> absolutely. to think of food in a different way and think of the ground in a different way. >> and therefore to think of their lives in a different way. >> exactly. definitely. >> okay. we know biodynamic farming isn't
for everybody. it is gaining in popularity. they are smart about going to farmers market and getting you questions what to ask for because not all organic farming is the same. some organic do use pesticide. they want you to be aware of what they are putting into their body. i thought it was interesting. they can't take antibiotics, are never sick. they role believe the food we put in our bodies affects our mood, mental health and physical health. >> when you hear a kid say the carrots are the bomb, you know they are doing something right. >> california is an agriculture state and so many people don't think of it that way. i want you to think about that you're going to go out and eat barbecue. >> as we do that in a little while. >> but first break it today. a champion whip artist plays the most tense game of jenga you've ever seen. first, this is "today" on nbc.

it's the new hbo series that's already got people talking. it's called "the deuce." it's set "new york times" square in the '70s when pornography and prostitution went from back alley commodity to an institution. >> he plays twin brothers frankie mart no, one a bartender and life in brooklyn, the other in the mob with piling debts. >> james franco, good to see you. >> thanks. >> this show, i'm old enough to remember new york in those days. i went to high school not too far from there. what's it like creating this thing? it really was spot on. >> obviously we're talking like we can't go down to 42nd street
and shoot there now. it's just a completely different place. maybe you can tell us. you look at those old scorsese movies, taxi driver and stuff, he'll go down 42nd street an it's like markquise after marquee. we had to shoot up town. it was incredible how they made everything over. you tell me. i've been told -- >> i'm like how did they recreate this? i thought maybe you built it on a back lot, it was so accurate. >> one of the nice thing about new york, if you find places there are still old locations and can you still get that flavor. that's the thing. i directed two episodes of the season. and i'm watching all these old scorsese movies, and then i'm just getting so frustrated because i'm realizing, he back
in the day could just put the camera anywhere and it's '70s. here we have to do so much work just to make every frame look correct. >> i'm curious about directing. i have a quick question. when you do a take and you're directing and you're the actor in the scene, do you back and talk to your dp or do video review to see how you liked it? >> that's a whole conversation. there is a lot of actors that direct themselves. but this is that times two because i play twins. so then it was like, it could be the ultimate like mind whatever. so like i talked to bryan cranston about it a lot, where he directed some of the "breaking bad" episodes. as a director you go in, you kind of work everything out. you know what you want out of each scene, right? you work that all out. you talk to your sce cinematographer. by the time you step on as an
actor you know what you want of the scene. as an actor it's an extension of that. actually if you have the right people around you, it's not that hard. you can lean -- the danger everyone thinks about is, oh, he's just going to spend all of his time on his self. ultimate ego stroke. >> you're playing two guys. >> i favor one more than the other. >> back in the old days, there was the line they couldn't cross because it was the same actor playing it. here you guys are crossing it. >> yeah. that's the old -- that's the old style. you'd keep the camera locked off, do one. change the makeup, come and do the other one. and we do actually do some of that. we are on -- it's hbo but you still are on a budget. so when you're doing that as a director, part of that is like, okay, am i going for the full green screen? that's going to cost me a certain amount of money.
that means i get fewer period cars in this scene. that's actually one of the dances you do as a director. yeah. they have all the techniques now. i could make out with myself. i could do anything. >> you went there, james. >> do you really want to? >> michael fassbender, i didn't go there on this one. >> last time i saw you, you had the moustache for this role, i think. >> yeah. >> we've actually got you guys with mustaches. we have a nice little mock-up here. >> this was actually just out of high school. this was when i was in college. >> i need that photo for a reference between the two. >> oh, yeah. oh, my god. >> looks like a caterpillar. >> you look older. >> looks like a caterpillar. >> you look kind of like william ma macy's brother. >> please, turn that off.
>> if you had a mustache, that's a whole other story. anyway, the "the deuce" premiers this sunday on hbo. it is terrific. >> thank you. >> coming up, you loved him as the star of "about a boy" now he's taking on a role about a man who is very well-known. we're going to catch up ♪ ♪ the best way to get together is with a treat

were? >> it's interesting. not like doing an impression, even though he was a real person. you're not trying to imitate a speech pattern or anything like that. you kind of look where they grow up and try to develop an accent around that. i read a lot of his novels alongside reading biography and pieced those together and tried to catch the essence of what he stood for. he was so unrelenting in his quest for truth and dedicated to his art. it's really inspiring. >> you think some of that came from his experiences in the war, world war ii, he didn't have tolerance for people's bs? >> completely. no, completely. he suffered ptsd after the war. that was a huge part of his writing and it goes into it. so all those things were parts of his life i knew nothing about before reading the script and then researching the film. it was very interesting to learn about. >> we actually have a picture of you on the set of mad max knitting. is that what you like to do between takes? >> you know what, i did on that
movie. that was my thing between setups. on that movie i knitted. i kind of pick up different hobbies depending on the movie. this, we believe in the rye, we did three-minute art. we would find famous pieces of art and we'd have three minutes with crayons to try to recreate them. >> really? are you an artist at all? >> no, horrendous. when sarah paulson came in and she walked into the makeup trailer and there was crayon drawings around. she was so confused. she thought there was an overproud parents with drawings and found out. >> thank you so much for being here.
