this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on the thursday morning. this isn't even our halloween costm. i'm matt lauer along with al roker. i am a yankee fan but you had to feel them good talking about all of what boston has been through and now they bring home the world championship. good for them. >> hard to take you seriously. >> with everything that boston has been through to. >> we are beard sox nation today. can we get over it now? >> more on the win in a moment and, of course, this is halloween and we all know that. we have a lot in store for you. two surprise concerts and our big costume reveal which might be our best yet.
let us begin with today's top story the severe storms that are impacting halloween plans for a big section of the country. al, what do you have? >> we have a gotogepen we'll start in kansas. massive thunderstorms, hail, damaging winds, it is really a mess there. we're going to take a look at that. you can see flooding rains, big problems going on. we're also looking at currently our friends in austin, texas. austin, they saw a lot of rain and flooding. some parts of austin picking up 10 inches of rain so far. as we go to the radar, here's what we've got to show you. this basically is a massive system that's pushing its way in, so is the map. low pressure developing right now over minneapolis and also over texas. we have a frontal system that stretches from there down all the way into the systems behind it. colder air and then ahead of it this warm air and so between the two, we're looking at these areas that is causing big problems.
we have flood watches, flash flood warnings. we have wind advisories and we've got high wind warnings all the way to the great lakes. this is going to be a real mess over the next 24 hours. it starts this morning from texas on into louisiana and arkansas. as we move into noontime, little rock, memphis, you're going to start to see the activity by the late afternoon, paducah, louisville, indianapolis and by late in the afternoon into this evening prime trick or treating time. south bend, detroit, the rain spreads to the northeast. high winds are going to be a big problem on into tomorrow morning. flooding also going to be a big issue, especially down to the south. and louisiana, some areas are going to pick up a foot of rain over the next 24 hours. so, this is going to be a widespread system, a long-lasting system right on into tomorrow morning. indianapolis already canceling their trick or treat plans for this evening, matt, and some other towns are following suit. it's going to be a rolling cancellation. we're going it see these all night long.
>> we urge people to be careful, no question about it. we want to also mention no dampening the spirit up in boston this morning. for the third time in nine years the red sox are world series champions and this time it's even sweeter because it happened at home. ron mott is on the field at fenway. good morning in ing to you. >> they are cleaning up in boston. quite a scene downtown. take a look this is boyelston street chanting boston strong for this red sox team that went from worst to first from last season to this season. a season with far more at stake than just baseball. >> it hasn't happened at fenway park for 95 years. >> when the season started, few fans, even the faithful could imagine this. >> world champions. >> the boston red sox one of baseball's worst teams just a
year ago now world champion, brushing the st. louis cardinals 6-1, win the series 4-2. >> high fly ball to left. >> reporter: the game was knotted at 0-0 when shane victorino who had been hitless unloaded. clearing the bases with a three-run double in the bottom of the third inning, setting off a rally. >> 3-0, boston. >> i just went up there and said, hey, i'll get another moment. i missed two games. >> reporter: since april 15th, when a pair of bombs near the finish line of the boston marathon shattered lives people here forged a common resolve. boston strong they called it. and no one summed it up better than slugger david ortiz. big papi as he's known in these parts gave voice to what many were feeling.
last night those feelings turned far more celebratory, though no less reflective of the setbacks overcome. >> go red sox. >> the red sox gave our city hope. we're back stronger than ever. >> it's exactly the year for this to happen. >> reporter: while it's the eight time boston fans have cheered, it's the first time in nearly a century, 95 years since the champagne was uncorked at historic fenway park. >> it's great. waiting my whole life to see them win here. unbelievable. >> as you might imagine, a lot of tired folks dragging themselves back to work and school this morning. here's the agenda going forward. today party, tomorrow party and then a big parade on saturday wrapping up an unforgettable season. >> thank you very much. not expected at the beginning of the season, right? >> a lot of analysts who picked them to finish third or fourth in their division. they played well from the very beginning of the season. congratulations, again. take a turn and go to washington and the white house
is fending off new concerns that the health care website could be vulnerable to security threats including hackers. peter alexander has the details on that. good morning to you. >> privacy rights dwrup rights people say it's scary who will have access to the information that people put in and tough enough safe guards are in place. with october finally coming to a close, it's been nothing but a nightmare for the launch of obama care. the latest concern is the website secure. >> would you commit today secretary to shut down the system and do a security test so these americans can have their information. >> if you read the memo. >> i have read it. >> reporter: on capitol hill wednesday kathleen sebelius was grilled about a memo, which just three days before the october 1st launch date warned that security testing of the site was not finished. exposing a level of uncertainty that could be deemed as a high risk. sebelius insisted that
joe biden told cnn both he and the president had been assured that website was good to go. >> neither he or i are technology geeks and we assume that it was up and ready to run. >> reporter: now, about those security concerns administration officials say sharing data is critical to determine whether people qualify for government subsidies. the health and human services development consumers can trust the information they're providing is protected by security standards. savannah, matt. >> thank you, peter. chuck todd is nbc's chief white house correspondent and political director. chuck, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's start right here. kathleen sebelius went before congress yesterday and she did something you don't see happen in washington very often. she took the blame. she said, i'm accountable. whether she's to blame or not, what did she accomplish for the administration? >> she bought time. the administration was very nervous about her appearance before capitol hill because frankly her media ap have been shaky.
when she went in front of jon stewart at daley show became a big problem. nervousness about how did she do? how did she handle it? she stood her ground and didn't take any bait. >> on the personal side playing the can she keep her job game for a couple of weeks' after the performance before congress, are you leaning in one direction or another? >> her job was never in jeopardy before march 21st. she will be in charge during the whole open enrollment. the question is, is she in charge on april 1. >> what happens is that website has to work. people have to be able to buy affordable health care insurance efficiently. let's look at the nbc/"wall street journal" poll. a flip in some numbers. >> there is. during the shutdown when the whole republicans were making the shut down about health care, we actually saw the numbers for
health care get a little bit better. we're seeing the bad idea, almost the majority think the new health care law is a bad idea and that's continuously a problem for the president. >> let's talk about the president right now between syria and the shutdown and obama care. pproval rating this low at this point in time. when you look, he started the year at 52% and he has just gone down. during the shutdown i actually saw a bounce up but that was in comparison to the republicans. but when you look at the weight of everything, particularly syria, nsa -- we always forget about that one -- health care, and a shutdown, that's why he's sitting there. when you have a majority getting over 51%, and by the way, even his likability rating is upside-down for the first time. people are starting to not even like him as much. >> one side of the political coin, let's go to the others right now and see how republicans are faring in this latest poll. they're the ones who shut down the government. >> they are. things are so bad for them. we asked, if you could have a
choice of a third party candidate the or the democratic or the republican candidate, what would you pick? independent candidates actually finished ahead of the republicans. once again the republican party had a new low in their personal rating, their brand rating. they had another low in their approval rating on capitol hill. seeing a question like this where they can't -- where they finish behind a mythical independent candidate, as bad as things are for the president, they're still worse for the republicans. >> chuck todd, thanks very much for coming up. we appreciate it. >> sorry i dressed as a tv correspondent. >> don't worry about it. there are some serious new allegations about the nsa this morning. natalie is over here with those. natal natalie, good morning. good morning to you, matt. that's right. the constant drip, drip, drip once again. the national security agency this morning denying today a report that it hacked into google and yahoo! servers as part of its spying program. nbc's andrea mitchell is in washington this morning with more on this story. trae, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. well, based on leaked documents from edward snowden, "the
washington post" now reports that the nsa and british intelligence have hacked into the main communications links connecting google and yahoo! overseas. this would be a back doorway that avoids legal restrictions here in the u.s. that require a court order to access accounts. according to "the post" this enables the nsa to access hundreds of millions of user accounts including those of many americans. the nsa did issue a brief denial but it did not directly address this specific charge. yahoo! and google say they were unaware of the hacking but google said it has, quote, long been concerned about the possibility of this kind of snooping adding, we are outraged at the lengths to which the government seems to have gotten its intercept data from our data networks and underscores the need for urgent reform. natalie? >> all right, andrea mitchell in washingt washington. thanks, andrea. syria has met the november 1 deadline for destroying its chemical weapons production and mixing facilities. that deadline was part of the deal brokered by the u.s. and russia that preempted military action against syria. the next deadline in two weeks requires syria to agree on a
detailed plan for existing chemicals weapons destruction. a flight was forced to make an emergency landing on a small island in alaska. the plane landed in cold bay, alaska. population there just 98. after an engine line came out, the plane safely landed. passengers got off and they waited in the community center until a backup plane arrived from seattle. soon here in new york city you'll have to be 21 to buy cigarettes. the city council voted yes to raising the minimum age from 18 to 21 on wednesday night. it's the first major american city to adopt such strict tobacco laws. advocates say higher age limits help prevent young people from taking up a hazardous habit. mayor michael bloomberg says he will sign the bill. an american indian tribe is insisting this morning that the washington redskins change their name. members of the oneida indian nation met with nfl representatives on wednesday. the tribe calls the redskins name derogatory and offensive. the nfl said in a statement they have listened and respectfully
discussed the issue. they want for the dialogue to continue. however, team owner dan snyder who wasn't present at the meeting refused to change the name calling it a badge of honor. and take a look at this, caught on camera, a high-speed police chase in milwaukee ended with this dramatic crash. officers were trying to pull over a wrongway driver as he tried to change lanes, then hit that concrete barrier, goes flying into the air, into the deputy's car right behind him. authorities suspect the driver was drunk. both the driver and the deputy, believe it or not, they were hurt but they are expected to recover. so fortunately there. terrible when you see that video. gosh. right at you. natalie, thank you. trick-or-treat forecast. we're going to take a look at the entire country and show you what's going on. temperature wise we don't have any major extremes so it won't be all that bad, if we can put up the lights and show you, we're looking at temperatures in the 50s in northern new england. 40s and 30s through the northern plains. 80s down in texas. we do have this wide swath of

standing outside on a narrow ledge of a highway overpass. >> when i saw her on the other side of the guardrail, i immediately, you know, something isn't right. >> reporter: he stopped the bus full of passengers in the middle of the overpass and called out to her. >> miss, are you all right? >> reporter: the woman appeared to be on the brink of suicide. >> once i opened the door and made contact, i saw her look back at me and look back at the 198. i knew that was it. >> reporter: after sever attempts to communicate with the woman -- >> ma'am, ma'am, are you okay? >> reporter: barton gets off the bus and literally coaxes her off the ledge. what happens next is remarkable. martin sat down on the ground and put his arm around her. i said, what, whatever it is, it might feel bad, it may feel bad, but, you know, that jumping is not the answer. >> reporter: barton says he believes he was driving by at that moment for a reason. >> knowing i saved somebody's life, it makes me feel good.
being in the right place at the right time. >> reporter: that woman is said to be in her 20s, and shortly after barton rescued the woman, officials arrived and he got back on the bus to a round of applause. that was certainly well deserved. >> good for him, that is fantastic. other people we saw, a bicyclist, went right past. that someone takes the time to stop and do something, it's great. >> a man of faith. he feels he was fully called to stop. >> it's halloween morning. we are getting a first glimpse at one of our costumes, apparently, carson is going from the smith brothers from that cough box. >> no, that's not true, matt. >> what is it? >> like you, i'm a big yankees fan, i'm boston strong, last place last year. they won the world series. god bless you. to the city of boston. i will wear this as we say here in the orange room. you have heard about the issue of texting while driving. this could be a glimpse of the

beard. >> california has a law, you aren't allowed to have a screen opened in front of your face once you are driving. once this thing goes wide, this could become an issue. people wearing google glasses while driving. >> it could be a distraction. >> by the way, real quick, in that whole little piece, there was a clue as to what my costume is going to be today, so go back and watch it. in less than an hour, you will see all the great reveals. >> thank you, carson. coming up, a "today" exclusive, a police officer and mother of two did not let being shot at point-blank range stop her from chasing after the gunman. >> that's an you be real story. and think helmets and mouth guards keep your children safe from dangerous injuries? the new report on concussions serving as a warning to parents of young athletes. but first, this is "today" on nbc. would look like john stamos.

that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), which may be fatal. stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen
or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans. it's back. olive garden's buy one, take one, just $12.99. choose one of five amazing entrees to enjoy today, like smoked mozzarella chicken. and take home a second entrée for later. buy one, take one just $12.99. go olive garden. he loves me. he loves me not. he loves me. he loves me not. ♪ he loves me! that's right.

and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. make the most of every moment. ask your dermatologist about humira, today. clearer skin is possible. served on a toasted pretzel roll, our new bacon avocado chicken sandwich comes with fries and your choice of soup or salad. it's just one of chili's delicious lunch break combos. more life happens here. and these little angels build in strength. and that little angel says, "weeeeeeeee!" 60% more sheets than charmin. everything you want and the value you love. angel soft.
