5:07 am
the hotel alarms were going out. we got out of the hotel. people were really, really freaked out. >> i imagine that's true. stay safe. >> somebody else working to stay safe, nbc's gaddi schwarz. >> reporter: that's right, halley. no one has slept basically all night. the aftershocks have been almost nonstop. most of the town is in darkness right now. the power is out to a lot of ridgecrest, but this is a big lots and we've got some emergency lights inside of big lots so you can see what's going on. i just want to take a moment to walk you through what we see here. it is absolute pandemonium in there. you've got aisles that are completely blocked like this. imagine being inside of this big lots or a grocery store because there's grocery stores in this same strip mall while the ceiling is starting to come down on you as you try to make your way to the door. you've got debris that is
5:08 am
blocking all throughout. this was the scene in so many different places. again, this hit at around 8:00 so there were still people out and about when that violent shaking decided to start. so we saw it in restaurants, we saw those moments of panic, people pulling out their cell phones, people videoing what was happening. we saw it in grocery stores, in liquor stores. everything falling down. a very, very terrifying few moments there. then afterwards when people come outside they find themselves in darkness. now it is a moment in which firefighters are going around putting out different hot spots, putting out different fires that flare-up when a gas rupture finds an ignition source. firefighters are still out doing that. >> the two quakes have been a challenge for first responders
5:09 am
in ridgecrest. a few moments ago we started by asking them in addition to those aftershocks what are his most urgent concerns. >> right now we have a great unified command with kern county fire department. we're doing protective sweeps of the neighborhood. >> you mentioned people are bracing for the aftershocks. a lot of them don't have power. what's the situation on that? when do you expect it restored? >> i expect it imminent. they should have restored power to the remaining 800 customers. >> when you do turn the power back on, obviously that's where you can learn where some other problems may exist. what worries exist with that process? >> initially we had a lot of gas leaks. there are a will the of open gas lines and we are able to get on that pretty quick. when the tower comes on if we have broken wires, lamps that have broken in the house and
5:10 am
they were on they can introduce flammable materials. >> it seems what we've heard from our crews, this was really scary for our folks. have you had a chance to check in with your family back home, how they're doing and how they're holding up? >> yeah, it's been pretty stressful. i was lucky enough one of my family members were bringing me food. everyone is doing fine. >> the seismologists, captain, say it's a near certainty there's going to be another major aftershock in the next coming days or even weeks there. what is the message you want to share with people in and around your area. >> the message is stay alert. as soon as you feel a rumbling, we've had a few seconds warning where the environment changes and we know it's coming. get yourself to that doorway, get yourself to a safe spot and protect yourself, protect your head. >> that is good advice. thank you very much for being with us. >> thank you, captain.
5:11 am
>> thank you. >> that was ridge crest police captain. >> millions of people feeling the heat on the fourth of july holiday weekend, including folks in a place where you would not expect it to be a scorcher this year. alaska. dylan is talking about what's a dangerous heat wave. >> not something you think of when you think of alaska. we're thinking dog sleds but this year the nation's 49th state is stuck in the middle of a record heat wave. >> unusual scene playing out in alaska. >> the hottest day of all times. >> reporter: the temperature hitting a record 90 degrees this week. >> i like the sun because it's better than snow. >> reporter: the heat wave continues through the weekend with it staying 10 to 20 degrees above the 65 degree average. with more than 100 wildfires burning, some caused by lightning, alaskan firefighters are battling through the holiday weekend. >> use your experience, your knowledge.
5:12 am
keep your awareness up. >> reporter: in the continental u.s. an intense blast of wind from a thunderstorm known as a microburst blew the roof off of this home in iowa. hail and heavy rain washed out this area. in wyoming twisters. in florida streaks of lightning hit the sky and rain delayed races at the daytona international speedway. san antonio to raleigh. the combination will make it feel like it's in the triple digits. >> and it will be very warm in alaska. the average high is 65 degrees. with this ridge continuing across that part of the country, temperatures will still be running 10 to 20 degrees above average. anchorage will likely break records going into the weekend. also in the southeast we have not the heat but also the humidity. we are looking for it to feel like it's 108 in mobile, 102 in augusta. in the northeast we're looking for the temperatures to be just as warm. it will feel like it's 95 to 100
5:13 am
degrees. cleveland will feel like 90. going into next week even as early as tomorrow in the northeast, temperatures will drop. we're back into the mid 80s by tuesday. >> dylan, thank you. we'll get the rest of your national forecast in a moment. we turn to politics. president trump is not backing down in his battle over the 2020 census. the president saying he might sign an executive order to add a question about citizenship to the question air. nbc's hans nichols is in new jersey this morning not far from the president's golf course. hans, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, peter and halley. the challenge for the president this morning as well as his legal team is to settle on a legal strategy on how to include a census question. but the clock is ticking because those census forms have already been printed without one on it. before leaving washington, president trump refusing to
5:14 am
surrender on the census question. >> it's one of the ways that we're thinking about doing it very seriously. >> if the president considers his options his lawyers are playing for time telling a judge on friday that they know what they want to do but not how they want to do it. trump is interpreting last week's 5-4 supreme court ruling against the citizenship question as only a temporary setback. >> i have a lot of respect for justice roberts but he didn't like it but he did say come back. essentially he said come back. >> reporter: trump's focus on the kren be krus coming after his controversial salute to america's military might on the national mall in which he suggested there were airports in america during the revolutionary war on a technical glitch. >> the teleprompter went out. at the end it just went out. it went kaput. >> trump had previously mocked barack obama for leaning on the devices. he also responded to joe biden's claim that he was the boy. >> he used to make fun of me and
5:15 am
i smacked him in the mouth. >> i don't think i'm a bully. i don't like being taken advantage of by other countries, by pharmaceutical companies, by all of the people that have taken advantage of this country. >> reporter: and the president looking for victory abroad on another field, wishing the woman's world cup team luck in france putting aside his dispute with meghan rapinoe while admitting he might not watch the final. >> i don't know that i'll be able to. i hope they do well. >> reporter: now there's nothing on the president's public schedule this weekend so lots of time to meet with his legal team or get in a round of golf. peter, halley. >> hans nichols at bedminister property. thank you. now to the teenager who may be having the best morning of any of us. 15-year-old sensation coco gauff a day after she won her third round match, this one, boy, it was a nail biter. looked like gauff was about to lose before she turned it around in very dramatic fashion.
5:16 am
now she's made it to the round of 16. nbc's blaine alexander has maybe the best assignment of the business. she's been following gauff. blaine, good morning to you. >> reporter: halley, good morning to you. coco gauff is so much fun to watch and we are still watching her. she is set to take the court later today for a doubles match, but it's that stunning solo performance yesterday that still has so many people talking. she came back from a real squeaker of a match to victory and she's making history with each win. it seemed coco gauff's fairy tale run was all about over. >> doesn't quite have the control. >> reporter: she was down a match point when suddenly the 15-year-old fought back. leaving centre court with another win. a spot in round 4 and a crowd that couldn't get enough. >> people in the crowd were behind me every step of the way and that's something i really
5:17 am

5:18 am
you're 15 years old. you're playing wimbledon. we didn't expect to be here. nobody expected you to be here so it's a great opportunity to go see how good you could be. >> reporter: soaking it in but not slowing down with her eyes already towards the next match. and monday she takes on simona halep. that will be a bit of a challenge. over the past three years that player has been twice ranked number one in the world. halley and peter, if yesterday's match shows us anything, she does not give up easily. >> a lot of people rooting for her. thank you very much. >> definitely good for those beyonce tickets. >> i don't even follow tennis and i'm rooting for her. it's so exciting. >> let's take a look at what's going on across the country. we are looking for more numerous storms across the country. it stays hot and humid >> cool temperatures to start right now, and 70 degrees in san

5:28 am
for many communities still shaken from thursday's earthquake and we are seeing the damaged walls and cracked glass on ground. the earthquake was felt widely across the state, and the epicenter is from bridge quest, and from the epicenter of thursday's 7.4. people felt that earthquake at sfo and reported to the control tower and the duty manager says when that happens, there is a process in place to check the runways for damage and the runways were checked after the 8.19 earthquake last night. and no damage found. the duties operation says that no interruption, but an officer says he was writing the report inside of the terminal when he felt the building shake. >> it felt like a cruise ship and i saw the blinds rattling back and forth and the cabinet

5:30 am
oh, my gosh. >> we are back on this saturday morning, july 6th, 2019. that is a rock slide near the epicenter of last night's earthquake. a frightening scene there. >> let's get right to the breaking news overnight. the second major earthquake to hit california in two days. a magnitude 7.1. this one containing 11 times more energy. 11 times more powerful than the first one. like the quake that happened thursday, this one was centered near ridge crest, california, near the mojave desert. >> they're still talking about it there this morning.
5:31 am
nbc's molly hunter was in ridgecrest when this quake hit. molly, good morning. >> reporter: peter, hallie, that's right. 7.1 was massive. 1 11 times for energy. so much bigger than the 6.4. people were really freaked out. the aftershocks keep coming. there have been dozens since that 7.1, and the first thing we saw right after that quake was a house fire. huge plumes of black smoke coming out of the house. we know the woman who lived in the house did actually survive but none of her belongings did. grocery stores, liquor stores were cleaning up from thursday's quake when this one struck. check out this picture, you guys, in nearby trono. a huge crack in the cement. we just spoke with someone from troen no who said the entire road to that town is really damaged. we're standing outside of the hospital. the ridgefield regional hospital. a couple of hours ago they
5:32 am
evacuated all of the patients outside. they were treating patients in the parking lot. they were worried about damage to the building. there was a lot more damage than thursday's 6.4. we won't know the extent of that until the sun comes up. >> seismologists saying the aftershocks could continue for days to weeks. thank you very much. dylan is back with a check of the weather. >> good morning, guys. starting off with heavier rain just like we've seen in the areas every day this week. heaviest rain falling across south central, nebraska. we have a frontal system across the northeast. we are looking at two areas where we could see some severe weather break out today. the first is back towards the eastern rockies. damaging wind and hail is a possibility. we can't rule out tornadoes. in the northeast we will see the threat of severe storms, large hail, damaging winds but a much
5:33 am
lower threat of tornadoes if any at all. it's all because of the cold front. these will fire up as you go into the late morning and afternoon. heavier downpours. out on the road keep in mind that the water could accumulate very quickly. that will continue to move to the south. as it does so, it will push the humidity and storms farther into the southeast by sunday. it will be a much better day especially as we go into the northeast on sunday with lower humidity and temperatures in the 70s and 80s. we're looking at half an inch of rain for parts of the eastern rockies and plain states. in the northeast we could see some areas with as much as 1 to 2 inches of rain. and parts of virginia and north carolina we could see as much as 55 degrees right now and live look in san francisco. we do have low stratas hanging out, but the clearing is going to be much better even for the coast and through the afternoon. right now in san jose, clear skies and 55 degrees. the clear skies are going to
5:34 am
make for slightly warmer temperatures, and inland areas can expect a good increase through the 70s by 12:00. expect low to mid-80s in the inland areas with hotter temperatures through livermore. >> and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, thank you. now to a new twist in a story making headlines for months. after a young man accused kevin spacey of groping him against his will, this morning a. >> boomer: -- bombshell. seven days after it was filed the accuser's attorney saying they're dropping a civil lawsuit. raising questions about what happens next. >> reporter: a legal shocker. the man who accused actor kevin spacey of groping him in a nantucket bar abruptly dismissing his civil suit friday. this was a hearing in the high profile criminal case against
5:35 am
spacey set for monday. the suit was dropped with prejudice, meaning it can never be filed again. and legal experts say that's a big deal. >> that's a strong indicator that the defendant, spacey's team, reached out and settled this case for some undisclosed sum of money. >> reporter: spacey was charged with one count of indecent assault and battery. the son of boston television anchor heather unrui who was 18 at the time claiming the actor bought him drinks and then fondled him. spacey has pleaded not guilty. many wonder if the possible settlement of the civil case could mean trouble for the criminal case. >> if the accuser settled the case, everything depends on whether the prosecutors still believe they should go forward even with a reluctant accuser. >> reporter: at issue, the whereabouts of the teen's cell phone. text messages were used to charge spacey. now they say other messages were
5:36 am
deleted. court filings say the police notes show the phone was returned to the accuser's family. they say they don't recall receiving it. >> the accuser's phone may contain important evidence. if they claim they can't find it and it doesn't sound like a good reason, the court has a lot of different remedies it can impose, including even throwing out all of that evidence. >> reporter: spacey's career has tanked since this and other accusations of sexual misconduct first surfaced. dropped from his starring role on "house of cards" and from the film "all the money in the world" calling this criminal case a reckoning in the era of me too. this morning the future a little less certain. >> so it's still unclear if spacey will go to that hearing on nantucket on monday. his lawyers didn't respond to our requests for comment but have called the charges against him patently false. the accuser's father can be in
5:37 am
the courtroom to explain about the cell phone. as for the settlement, we may never know because of a confidentiality clause. still to come here, why some royal watchers are not too happy about today's royal christening of meghan and harry's little bundle of joy. bundle of joy. up next, sunscreen my gums are irritated. i don't have to worry about that, do i? actually, you do. harmful bacteria lurk just below the gum line, and if you're not taking care of your gums, you're not taking care of your mouth. so now i use this. crest gum detoxify. crest gum detoxify, voted product of the year. it works below the gum line and is clinically proven to neutralize harmful plaque bacteria and help reverse early gum damage. gum detoxify, from crest. gums are good. so is my check up! crest. healthy, beautiful smiles for life. but one blows them allmany moisturizers... out of the water. hydro boost with hyaluronic acid

we're back now with an important discussion certainly this time of year. it's swim safety. the topic is in the headlines after tragic drownings involving small children of celebrities. the daughter of olympic skier bode miller. more recently the son of country music singer, granger smith. certified infant swim instructor michael petralla. he's working with the miller family to raise awareness. families are taking their families to the beaches or to the pools, obviously swim safety is a top priority. there are stats that make this really an urgent issue for families. >> we know that about ten people every day in america drown. drowning is a leading cause of death for kids under five years ago. preschoolers who drown are in the care of one or both parents. the backyard pool is the place where it happens the most. >> just takes a moment for a parent to look away and a child to find themselves in the pool. >> water safety is critical wherever you choose to go. what are the places to begin for
6:39 am
parents trying to protect themselves and their families. >> we want to set up layers of protection. the more layers we set up the safer our children are going to be. that first layer is going to be active supervision. we want to make sure who's watching the child, whether it's mom, dad, grandma, aunt but we need to communicate that with each other so we know who exactly is going to watch them. >> by watching that means eyes are on them all the time. >> exactly. >> you have ways to protect your home, pool at home or even at the beach as well. >> so we want to set up barriers between the house and the pool. so we're going to talk about locks and alarms on the back doors. as your kids grow we want to probably change where those locks are. the next is going to be a pool fence between the house and the pool so that should have a self-latching gate. locking as well. >> a gate that the kids can't open up by themselves? >> exactly. . beyond that we get to alarm systems, wearables. parents need to know what is best for their child and their

situation. do the research. >> a lot of families, mine included right now are in the swim lessons phase. 4 years old trying to get it right. that means when we're at the pool we let her hang out in one of these. what's the problem with these? >> so this is probably the worst thing you could put your child in in the backyard swimming pool. all of these devices are coast ghaurd approv guard approved. they are to be used on a moving vessel whether it be a watercraft, boat. these are not intended for use in the backyard pool. these get your child in a vertical position which is the worst position. >> what's called the drowning position as you describe? >> that's correct. so we want to make sure when your kid's in swim lessons that they're in a self-rescue lesson, something that teaches them to get to a back float, rest and breathe. also, when you have thoeem in a pool, we should be holding them, playing with them, making sure. this allows your kid to enjoy
