"today" with shanel jones, peter alexander and dylan dreyer. >> good morning and welcome to today. thank you for joining us on this saturday morning. let's get right to our top story. tropical storm barry moving ashore on the gulf coast today. >> here is the very latest right now. barry is packing topped sustained winds of 65 miles per hour. it's not the wind but the rain and the storm surge that is going to be the issue with this storm. >> president trump has declared a state of emergency for louisiana with 3,000 national guard troops poised across the state for rescues with boats, high water vehicles and helicopters on high alert. >> zeroing in on new orleans, the levies are expected to keep the rising mississippi river at bay as the river is expected to crest at 17 feet. that is lower than first feared and three feet below what they call a spillover range. >> we have the story with all
angles. let's start with kerry sanders. good morning to you. >> reporter: well, good morning from new orleans right here on famed canal street where we're yet to really feel the impact of barry. that's still a few hours away. to the south down on grand isle, the barrier island about 600 people decided to stay put. right now they're really feeling it. power is out. streets are flooded and it will continue like that for a while. there are tornado warnings there and all the way up to baton rouge as well as into mississippi where a lot of people are basically weathering this now as they're going to ride this out. because barry is such a slow-moving storm, we're likely to see nasty weather here until monday morning. this morning it's not just wind. >> with the wind gusts we know that we're going to lose power. >> reporter: but the water inundating the gulf coast. around new orleans the flood gates are closed. >> this is the first time in the history of lubbock district that we've had to close every single gate, including on the river due to the river being so high.
>> reporter: residents prepare for the worst. >> barry is a dangerous and life-threatening storm. >> reporter: ready for action, more than 2,000 members of the louisiana national guard and the u.s. coast guard shallow water response teams. along the mississippi river where 8 million gallons of water now flow into the gulf of mexico every second, the storm crashing ashore, a big worry. >> it's starting to push the gulf of mexico into a clogged drain. >> overnight in saint charles parish, louisiana, temporary pumps moved in to move rainwater out. >> so this thing is no longer a threat to our parish. >> ahead of barry, tens of thousands of tourists and convention goers packed up and left town. >> disappointed that -- uncomfortable. >> go back. we don't need you here. >> reporter: but in myrtle grove, louisiana, a low-lying
town under mandatory evacuation, warren lawrence made the dangerous decision to stay put. >> i moved in knowing that when a hurricane comes or high wind comes, we going to have water. >> report: and in st. bernard parish authorities warning anyone who stays to keep out of flood waters. >> you will get a knock at your door. you're going to have to deal with us. period, the end. >> reporter: the army corps of engineers working with the national hurricane center, as you noted, have recalculated the storm surge in the mississippi river lower so it does appear that that threat, which was a lot of concern going into this, is it diminished. mother nature can be fickle, guys. we will wait to see what ultimately happens. right now especially here in new orleans they believe that those levies will not be over topped meaning that the water will not spill over which could mean that there's going to be less impact than was initially feared. >> absolutely.
we'll hope for that. kerry sanders, thank you. we want to get the latest on barry. wnbc's dave price is here for dylan. this is not the wind but the water today. >> yeah, and luck. we're going to talk about it all right now. let's take a look at where barry is at this point and where it's headed. 55 miles to the south southeast of morgan city, louisiana, with winds still at 65 miles per hour. whether or not this becomes a hurricane all an issue of semantics because as kerry mentioned, this is an issue of surge and rain. that's what we're going to be dealing with over the long term. it makes landfall within the next few hours and continues its path through the mississippi valley into the midwest and ohio valley before it makes a turn eastward. the other issue we're going to be dealing with is the speed with which the storm moves because as it sits over these saturated areas, the concerns for flooding exist. let's go through the alerts which are posted. 8 million people affected all the way east of biloxi and all
the way to the west from camryn, louisiana, to the texas border to the north by lake charles. storm surges 3 to 6 feet at this point. 1 to 3 feet as we head inland and new orleans right along the cusp or we could see significant storm surge, but we're going to continue to watch as this water moves in and continues to sit over the area. flash flood threats even though we're focused right now on the coast line, it spreads inland and all the way to the carolinas where we could see rainfall rates through parts of this region at 3 inches per hour and a storm which just sits over this area. now keep in mind we could see upwards of 10 to 15 inches of rape and rain and in some areas up to 25 inches of rain and that's the big concern for flooding. kerry mentioned it looks like the levies will hold around new orleans cresting at 27 feet.
we have 20 feet of room. all of that is before we factor in the rains. we'll continue to keep an eye on it. >> another major task for the gulf region, dave. thank you. breaking news overseas. a terror attack at a hotel in somalia. merges are among the dead. matt bradley has the story. >> reporter: this attack just ended a couple of hours ago. you mentioned 26 people who were killed. that number has been rising throughout the morning and local officials say it could rise even further as the day goes on. so this is what happened. al shabaab, a terrorist group based in somalia, attacked a hotel where local politicians and elders had been meeting trying to plan elections for september. so among the dead were some prominent local politicians, tribal elders and foreigners, at least two americans are thought to have been killed, but nbc news is trying to verify that with the u.s. state department and we're trying to get
confirmation once they come in. al shabab is a terrorist organization that used to control all of somalia and they've been terrorizing the region, including neighboring countries like kenya, for years. now they don't really have any land now outside of rural areas but attacks like this show that they're still very capable of launching major terror attacks in major cities. so here's what happened. they launched a terror attack into this hotel and it launched a 14 hour siege that only ended at 7 a.m. this morning when commandos rushed in. matt bradley, thank you. we are waiting for what could be a tense weekend across the country. scheduled raids nationwide expected to round up undocumented immigrants here. on friday the vice president, mike pence, visited a pair of detention facilities and he got an earful from some of those being detained at one of them. nbc's molly hunter is following this story for us. molly, good morning. >> guys, good morning to you. on the eve of these raids, that's right, vice president
pence has visited detention facilities down in texas. we have video of him reacting as he first walked into those rooms. he said later he expted the overcrowding because the system wasn't designed for this. he's firing back calling on democrats to end a crisis. grabbing onto the chain link fence, detainees shouted to the cameras. no shower, no shower they say. this is what vice president mike pence saw friday on his visit to a detention facility in mccallen, texas. journalists inside described a stench and said men had tears in their eyes. >> we are not terrorists. >> reporter: earlier the vice president visited a new facility built months ago that appears cleaner. >> are you comfortable? are you being well taken care of? i couldn't be more impressed with the compassionate work that our customs and border protection are doing at this facility. >> reporter: overnight tweet that go this is a prime example
of why we need to secure our borders. the facility is over crowded and our system is overwhelmed. his visit comes on the eve of mass immigration raids set to kick off sunday. >> so people come into our country illegally. we're taking them out legally. very simple. >> reporter: the raids canceled last month after plans were leaked to the media, target 2,000 undocumented immigrants in ten major cities including chicago, atlanta, miami, new york, and here in los angeles. the operation is only aimed at immigrants who are now under court orders to leave the u.s. >> are your friends afraid? are your colleagues afraid? is your community afraid? >> i'm afraid. i'm a daca recipient. i.c.e. can pick me up any time if they wanted to. my family's afraid. my community is afraid. they're very afraid. they're not alone. >> reporter: across the country a show of support as so many families prepare for the worst. ♪ ♪
>> reporter: and advocates and attorneys hearsay as families go into this weekend, if you don't need to be outside on sunday, they're cautioning people to stay indoors. most importantly, to know your rights. everyone has the right to remain silent. you don't have to share your immigration status when asked and no one has to open the door unless i.c.e. has a warrant signed by a judge. a lot of really nervous people going into this weekend be. >> molly hunter, thank you. there's been another shakeup in president trump's cabinet. this morning his labor secretary is out. this after alex acosta came under fire for reaching a widely criticized plea deal with disgraced financier jeffrey epstein back when acosta was a federal prosecutor in florida. nbc's hans nichols is in florida. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you guys. the president arrived back in the white house after traveling to ohio and accepting the resignation of the secretary in
the morning. he departed under controversy. he's the first to leave for a decision made during the bush administration. this morning president donald trump hoping to put his past with jeffrey ensteen behind him by parting ways with his current labor secretary. >> i just want to let you know this was him, not me, because i'm with him. >> reporter: alex acosta resigning amid fallout from a 2003 plea deal with epstein which he tried to defend earlier this week. >> the goal here was straightforward, put epstein behind bars. >> reporter: but acosta faced mounting criticism for the deal he helped broker as united states attorney which resulted in epstein spending only 13 months in prison for soliciting prostitution from a minor. >> i did not think it is right and fair for this administration's labor department to have epstein as a focus rather than the incredible economy we have today. >> reporter: the president explaining his decision to accept acosta's resignation. >> the fact is he has been a
fantastic secretary of labor. >> reporter: while insisting that his relationship with epstein soured years ago -- >> i was not a fan of jeffrey epstein and you watch people yesterday saying that i threw him out of a club. i didn't want anything to do with him. that was many, many years ago. it shows you one thing, that i have good taste. >> reporter: the house passed a bill for 9/11 survivors after public prodding and shaming from jon stewart. >> this is necessary. it is urgent. and it is morally right. >> reporter: senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has vowed to take up that bill before the august recess. the senate will also need to confirm a new labor secretary. and the news related to special counsel robert mueller's testimony on capitol hill, that testimony originally scheduled for this wednesday has now been pushed back to a week to july 24th to allow more time for the hearing. peter. >> hans nichols at the white house, thank you. we want to bring in
host and joy read, she's author the the book "the man who sold america." >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> we're going to ask you about alex acosta. we're going to ask you about the potential i.c.e. raid and detention centers. republicans say this is proof there is a crisis. democrats say it's a manufactured crisis and it was created by the trump administration. how do you resolve this? >> there's no reason to hold people if the idea was to massively deport people who are in the country without documents, this he could simply do that. the fact that the trump administration is holding people for 20, 40, 50 days, long beyond what the law allows, this is something else going on. the fact that they pre-announced that they were going to do raids to take people who are undocumented into it, you wouldn't announce it in advance. >> what does it say? >> it says they're trying to announce to their base to show his base that they are evicting people who his base doesn't want
to be here. so this is visual. i think it's meant to appear cruel. i think that the cruelty, as has been said very often, is the point. >> let me ask you about acosta, his exit from labor makes another cabinet post not filled from the administration with an unprecedented amount of vacancies. >> yes. >> without confirmation, can anybody filling in in the interim really do their job effectively? >> what we've learned about the trump administration from a lot of books that have been written and just from reporting, donald trump likes the idea of having acting because it gives him, as he says, more flexibility. without having congress being able to confirm people, being able to vet people, he can put whoever he wants in there. they can be acting for as long as possible. he has more acting administrators than any other presidential administration we've ever seen. having that chaos allows him to get around a lot of the restrictions and rules that are supposed to restrict his presidency. >> can we talk about democrats in 2020? the real division among democrats is direction. we have a new poll, the first
from nbc news wall street journal after this first democratic debate. it shows that 54% of democrats likely to vote are in a caucus say they want sweeping change, big change. just 41% say they want smaller, more realistic changes they describe. what do you think the right path forward is? >> i was looking at a pew poll that showed it's about 50/50 between democrats and progressive and liberals and those that are moderate or conservative. it's a party that literally is pulling in two different directions at one time but the reality is any time that you have an incumbent in office, it's a changed election. so i think it's odd to me that democrats are questioning that. you have an incumbent in office. it's very difficult to unseed a presidential incumbent. >> is it difficult to go too far left? >> we have to define it. there is a numeric majority in the country for things like health care for all people. that's a majority opinion. >> yeah. >> so a lot of things we used to
think of as left opinion are now majority opinion. so i think when people are looking at a supreme court decision that could end health care for 20 million people, it's a whole different conversation than talking about, you know, health care in the abstract. people can lose their health care. most americans want americans to act as health care. these aren't left opinions. >> before you leave us this morning, let's talk about your book. you know this country is so divided right now. what do you hope that book accomplishes? >> i want to just kind of tell the story and make sure people know how we got here, the truth of how we got here, that it wasn't economic anxiety, that we do have a fundamental challenge in the country. we are becoming a majority non-white country. there is a part of the american poll particular that is terrified of that, uncomfortable, that is angry and is fighting it and that the republican party has given fully into that fight. so we have a fundamental challenge of having to confront what our history actually is and the reason we have the president we have and we have to confront it because now our foreign adversaries can use our racial
divisions against us. it's a national security threat. >> it is a serious conversation. not going to end here. >> no. >> nice to see you. >> thank you very much. you can catch "am joy" at 10 a.m. eastern on msnbc. let's check in with dave price now for the rest of the forecast. dave? >> we're keeping an eye on barry. as we head to the southwest, excessive heat with temperatures 105 to 115 degrees in sections of california and arizona. storm system rolls into the rockies. watch for high winds and possible hail. we'll have a cloudy and cool start throughout the bay area. we have a good marine along the coastline. right now through the south bay 57 degrees and clearing by the afternoon and another warm forecasted highs into the upper 80s, low 90s. morgan hill, 90 degrees.

>> yeah, no, he raped me. forcefully raped me. knew exactly what he was doing. what hurts even more so is that if i wasn't afraid to come forward sooner, then maybe he wouldn't have done it to other girls. >> reporter: epstein is now behind bars in new york accused of child sex trafficking. she is not listed as one of the victims in that case. nbc news has reached out to epstein's attorneys multiple times but they have not responded to our requests. tragedy at sea when a toddler died after falling through an open window on a docked cruise ship. the 18-month-old fell 11 stories landing on a dock below. michael winkleman, the family's attorney, says chloe's grandfather had placed her on a railing by a window but had no idea it was open. royal caribbean said it's assisting local authorities but has not responded to allegations of possible negligence. two men got more than they bargained for during the running

thanks for joining us. we are here with your forecast and a foggy one. >> it's foggy in the city. that first shot is one of my favorite shots. this is what it looks like down below. 54 degrees in san francisco. it is very foggy. we're still that breeze along the coast. expect to keep those low clouds and fog lingering through mid morning and that will burn off nicely warming up by the afternoon. right now in san jose, 58. look at your range of temperatures. the south bay in the 80s. morgan hill, 90 degrees. some of the warmest temperatures will be in the tri-valley. redwood city, 79. if you're heading into san francisco, you're going to get to see some upper 60s, low 70s and up through the north bay, 60s, 80s and 90s.
we're talking about a pretty good range in temperatures all day long. >> the message is if you don't like the temperature where you are, drive two minutes and you can find another one. we begin with the immigration crisis. there is fear in some bay area communities about what the next 48 hours will bring. president trump says he will begin i.c.e. raids. the call to treat undocumented immigrants with dignity is getting loud. protesters feel the need to act now. in san francisco hundreds gathered to make two demands. close detention camps and stop ice from arresting people with deportation orders. >> we see kids who have been detained who are coming in after detention who are physically and mentally ill because of that. >> if it weren't for the current
rules and policies that were happening, i wouldn't be standing here, a doctor in front of you. >> the aclu has filed a federal lawsuit aiming to protect people taken into custody this weekend. the lawsuit argues undocumented immigrants must have a court hearing before a judge before they are deported. ice is expected to target 2,000 people across the country. ten cities will be targeted, including san francisco. activists believe this operation could happen in any part of the bay area. coming up this morning on today in the bay, if you run a red light, you might not have to pay. one bay area city isn't just apologizing to drivers. that and all your top stories at 7:00. ♪ ♪ this is how driving should feel.
the tech-advanced nissan leaf. the best selling electric vehicle of all time. this is nissan intelligent mobility. ♪ you're looking live at the world famous canal street in new orleans. the calm before this storm as tropical storm barry heads towards the gulf coast. we want to get right to that breaking news this morning. barry is packing maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour, still a tropical storm. but it is the rain on the way that could do some major damage this morning. nbc's morgan chesky is in new orleans. morgan, a lot of people watching out for the water as much as anything today, aren't they? >> reporter: yeah, peter, that's right. you can certainly feel the sense of anticipation in the air as the wind picks up in this part of new orleans. i can tell you there is a bit of
cautious optimism here as barry makes its way towards land. i can tell you a big reason behind that is what is located 30 to 40 yards on the other side of this wall, that is the mississippi river that was already in flood stage well before barry made its presence here. one thing that we're hearing in and around new orleans, the river has crested at about 17 feet. it was initially thought to be 20 feet and the good news there is that it's not going to pose any serious issues so they think to those levies in those areas. the city of new orleans not taking any chances. they've gone ahead and closed down more than 200 flood gates in and around the city as a line of defense to make sure the low lying areas aren't seriously hit. outside of new orleans they've had thousands of national guard members put down sand bags because every little bit helps when it comes to the rising waters and saving as many homes as they can. in the meantime as we look skyward, clouds are moving in and the wind is picking up. everyone is waiting to see just what barry will bring in the
next few hours. peter, sheinelle. >> stay safe down there. wnbc's dave price is here. >> let's take a check of the stats right now and tell you exactly where this storm is and what we're anticipating over the next several hours. its location, 55 miles to the south southeast of morgan city, louisiana. winds still at 65 miles per hour. now keep in mind this may not become a hurricane, but that's not the issue. it's all about the rain, less about the wind. it's moving to the west northwest at about 5 miles per hour. expect it to make landfall within the next several hours. so we're keeping an eye on that. in the meantime, walk over with me here for a moment. let's try and show you a little bit about where we imagine the biggest concern is going to be for flash flooding and we'll overlay the radar to show you that the outer bands of this storm now beginning to dump rain east into the florida panhandle, into sections around mobile and
into new orleans and vicinity throughout the gulf coast now. we're going to begin to see that whipping wind and that rain begin to roll on through. we could see watches and warnings posted later on through the day. this is going to be a slow mover dumping a lot of rain and not going anywhere fast. so that's the concern. torrential rains, dangerous floods. the remnants of barry eventually move into the midwest and because it moves so slowly, that enhances the flood threat well inland as we watch it over the next several days into early next week. as we roll on through, rainfall we could see 12 to 24 inches 58 degrees right now in san jose. it is cloudy out there, especially if you're in the city right now. we have a good layer of fog really hugging the coastline as well. overall in through the afternoon, we can expect to see temperatures really warm up into the mid and upper 80s for east san jose. morgan hill, 90 degrees. we will get mostly clear skies.
concord, 94. redwood city, 79. that's a look at the weather picture. sheinelle, peter. >> thank you, dave. this morning the legal troubles are deepening for r&b star r. kelly. the singer is facing federal charges for child pornography and obstruction of justice. he remains behind bars this morning, two days after his arrest. nbc's kathy park is here with the very latest. kathy, good morning. >> sheinelle, peter, good morning. prosecutors say for years the embattled singer recruited women and girls through his network. a recent documentary put the spotlight on his accusers and initiated a new investigation. this morning grammy award winning singer r. kelly back in an orange jump suit. a federal grand jury in chicago indicted the singer on 13 counts thursday accusing him of engaging in sex acts with five
under age victims and recording some of the abuse. a separate federal indictment in new york alleges kelly operated a criminal enterprise and recruited women and girls for illegal sexual activity. >> when you look at how these victims were treated, how he directed every move, every word, the way they were clothed, the fact that he had them call him daddy. >> reporter: kelly's attorney responded to the charges. he and his lawyers look forward to his day in court, to the truth coming out and to his vindication from what has been an unprecedented assault by others for their own personal gain. kelly's crisis manager also defended his client but was interrupted by angry father of one of the alleged victims. >> r. kelly is in there right now in jail. >> i want to know where my daughter is. where is she at? answer that question. >> reporter: kelly was already facing more than a dozen charges in illinois including aggravated
sexual abuse involving four women, three of them minors during a time of the alleged assault. he pleaded not guilty to all of the state charges. some of the alleged victims share their stories in a lifetime docu series, "surviving r. kelly" released in january of this year. >> it's very painful. >> reporter: federal officials say these explosive interviews prompted them to step in. >> the lies are being taken control over by an individual who is in a position of power. >> in 2008 kelly was acquitted of all charges. his next court appearance is next tuesday. if he's convicted on all counts, kelly could face decades of prison time. more to come. thank you. hailing a hero, the police officer who saved a baby in distress after a traffic stop. up next, break out the strawberries and cream. we're going live to wimbdonle ♪

moving storm. grand isle, population of 600 decided to stay put are now cut off because of the tidal surge that has come in with the tropical storm here. nobody apparently having any particular problems because the homes are elevated there. but the roads are closed off and we will see what's going on with tropical storm barry here in new orleans and throughout the region for some time because it's slow moving. it will last until monday morning. this morning it's not just wind. >> with the wind gusts we know that we're going to lose power. >> reporter: but the water inundating the gulf coast. around new orleans the flood gates are closed. >> this is the first time in the history of the lubbock district that we've had to close every single gate, including on the river due to the river being so high. >> reporter: residents prepared for the worst. >> barry is a dangerous and life threatening storm. >> reporter: ready for action, more than 2,000 members of the louisiana national guard and the
u.s. coast guard shallow water response team. along the mississippi river where 8 million gallons of water now flow into the gulf of mexico every second, the storm crashing ashore a big worry. >> starting to push the gulf of mexico into what you call a clog drain. >> reporter: overnight in saint charles parish, temporary pumps moved in to move rainwater out. >> until this thing is no longer a threat to our parish. >> reporter: ahead of barry, tens of thousands of tourists and convention goers in new orleans packed up and left town. >> disappointed. uncomfortable. >> go back to where you came from, barry. we don't need you here. >> reporter: but in myrtle grove, louisiana, a low lying town under mandatory evacuations, warren lawrence made the dangerous decision to stay put. >> i moved here knowing that when a hurricane comes or high
winds come we going to have water. >> reporter: and in st. bernard parish authorities warning anyone who stayed to keep out of flood waters. >> you will get a knock at your door and you're going to have to deal with us. period, the end. >> reporter: a little good news this morning. overnight the national hurricane center working with the army corps of engineers. they thought it might go up as high as 20 feet. it's now down to 17 feet. that means the likelihood of water going overtopping on the levies is almost nonexistent. the flooding from the mississippi river appears to be a diminished concern. sheinelle, peter. >> kerry sanders, thank you. we want to get the latest on barry. wnbc's dave price is here. >> let's go through the very latest data we just got. the numbers look like this right now. the location of barry, 50 miles west southwest of morgan city,
louisiana. now keep in mind that measures the distance from the eye of the storm to morgan city, which is inland. but i think we're going to see landfall imminently, within the next 60 minutes or so. winds now 70 miles per hour and as we discussed, that's not quite at hurricane strength. it is a strong tropical storm moving at 5 miles an hour. it makes landfall in the next hour or so. it continues on up. it rolls through the mississippi valley and eventually makes a turn towards the midwest and the ohio valley. keep in mind, moving very slowly the issue is still going to be the tremendous amount of water. we have alerts all the way over to the east of biloxi. 8 million people stretching from cameron, louisiana, and north to alexandria. we continue to watch for storm surge, 3 to 6 feet right along the coast line. inland, anywhere from 1 to 3 feet. keep in mind, that flash flood
threat even though we're concentrating right now on the louisiana coast line and in through sections of the gulf coast, we could see rainfall at 3 inches an hour and the flash flood threat will overspread sections of the southeast as eastward as the carolinas. we could be looking at anywhere from 10 to 15 inches broadly and upwards of 25 inches in some isolated locations. that's a quick look at the weather right now as far as barry's concerned. we'll send it back to you guys. >> dave, thank you very much. now to some breaking news overseas. a terror attack at a hotel in somalia. americans are among the dead. nbc's matt bradley has more on that. good morning to you, matt. >> reporter: good morning, sheinelle. this just wrapped up only a couple of hours ago in somalia. 26 people have died, but that number has increased all morning and officials there say it could still go higher as more information flows in. so this attack was claimed by al shabaab which is a militant
