well, so does the rest of the bay. >> it's friday the 13th, but make it a great day. >> see you back here at 11:00. good morning, gloves off. >> are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago. >> things get personal in the democrats' third debate and the battle between the moderates and progressives heats up. >> how are we going to pay for it i want to hear tonight how that's going to happen. >> i have never met anybody that likes their health insurance. we'll break it down, who had a good night and who missed the mark. gathering storm, the hurricane ravaging bahamas in the crosshairs again warnings and watches posted this morning. the latest track just ahead. judgment day, felicity
7:01 am
huffman to be sentenced today. what her case could signal for high profile defendants. all that plus lifesaver, the revolutionary treatment for children with peanut allergies at could be one step closer to reality today. defending the duchess, our exclusive interview with one of meghan markle's friends. the big new project meghan launched. one play between the panthers and buccaneers. the dramatic kickoff to week two of the nfl season. today, friday, september 13th. >> this is "today" with savannah guthrie and hoda kotb. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. hi, everybody, good morning, nice to have you with us on a friday morning it's friday the 13th, we're the lucky ones because we have a great crowd out there. >> no kidding.
7:02 am
when meghan trainor shows up on your plaza, we see a long line of people, it's a great way to end your week. the spirited debate in houston, between the top ten candidates, they went hard after the current president and each other. we'll talk about how it's playing with voters in a moment. hallie jackson all over the action last night. she's got the highlights. >> reporter: good morning to you, we're talking about these top democrats sharing the stage for the first time but making it clear they are not sharing the same visions for the country, and it was former vice president joe biden leading hard into his connections with former president obama taking much of the heat but perhaps the sharpest blow coming from julian castro being accused of a cheap shot with democratic divisions front and center, fireworks from former hud secretary, julian castro, and former vice
7:03 am
president joe biden. >> i'm fulfilling the legacy of barack obama and you're not. >> that will be a surprise to him. >> castro pulling in single digits, repeatedly railing against the frontrunner. >> every time something good about barack obama comes up, he say, oh, i was there, i was there, i was there, and every time somebody questions part of the administration that we were both part of, he says, well, that was the president. >> with this exchange about automatic enrollment for health insurance, making headlines for what many viewed as a swipe at biden's age. >> you just said that two minutes ago. you just said two minutes ago, they would have to buy in. you said they would have to buy in are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago. >> but it was castro who incorrectly characterized this comment biden had made. >> anyone who can't afford it gets automatically enrolled in the medicare type option we have >> this is why presidential debates are becoming unwatchable. >> that's called a democratic primary election
7:04 am
that's called an election. >> the aggressive attacks stealing the spotlight from the expected marquee matchup between biden and his more moderate positions and senator elizabeth warren and her more progressive policies, like support for bernie sanders' medicare for all plan. >> i know that the senator says she's for bernie, well, i'm for barack. >> we all owe a huge debt to president obama. the question is how best can we improve on it, and i believe the best way we can do that is make sure everybody gets covered by health care at the lowest possible cost. >> sanders characteristically fiery. >> under my legislation, people will not go into financial ruin because they suffered with a diagnosis of cancer. >> i know a lot about cancer, and let me tell you something, it's personal to me! >> also looking for a breakout moment, former congressman beto o'rourke making gun control central to his campaign after last month's shooting in his
7:05 am
hometown of el paso, texas >> hell yes, we're going to ke your ar-15, your ak-47, we're not going to allow it to be used against fellow americans anymore. >> another candidate seeking to stand out with a different strategy, cash, entrepreneur andrew yang campaigning on paying a thousand dollars a month to every american adult if he wins, now offering the same to selected supporters. >> my campaign will give a freedom dividend of $1,000 a month for an entire year to ten american families, someone watching at home. >> it's original, i'll give you that. >> that giveaway, triggering questions about whether it violates campaign finance law. from the democrats a more united front on president trump, as he took the stage in baltimore. his opponents attacking him 26 times during the three-hour debate. >> he reminds me of that guy in the wizard of oz, when you pull back the curtain, it's a really small dude.
7:06 am
>> by the way, that moment from congressman o'rourke about assault weapons is getting a lot of attention this morning including from one republican state lawmaker in texas tweeting this, my ar is ready forou, robert francis to that, o'rourke is responding overnight calling it a death threat and adding clearly you shouldn't own an ar 15 and neither should anyone else savannah. >> thank you so much let's bring in former democratic senator, nbc news political analyst, claire mccaskill, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> this is the first time we have had a narrower field, you saw the frontrunners on stage together do you think it moved the needle >> i don't think it moved the needle i think castro had a bad night, and joe biden was the recipient of that. >> the beneficiary, you mean >> it's good for biden because, you know, factually castro was wrong, and besides that biden stood up to it, and you know, i thought biden did fine last night. i thought elizabeth warren and that tension there really didn't
7:07 am
develop. the tension i felt in the room, honestly, savannah, was the five lowest candidates trying to swing for the fences to get into that five circle that will probably be competitive going forward. >> did any of them do it, the lower tiered candidates, did they have a moment that would catapult them higher >> i don't think so, frankly, the best debate of the night, in terms of who was helped the most, probably barack obama, barack obama had a very good night. everyone was hugging barack obama particularly joe biden. >> well, of course, and biden has always hugged barack obama but i remember you and i talking after the last debate and you were kind of perplexed that the democratic candidates had taken turn savaging the obama legacy saying it wasn't progressive enough seems like they got the memo and put their arms around president obama. >> kamala harris particularly decided to make trump the focus of her debate last night, and i thought it was pretty effective. >> that seems clearly to be harris' strategy over and over
7:08 am
again, when given the opportunity to bait this or that, she'd say let's focus on what matters, beating trump. do you think that's the way for her to rise up in the polls? >> i think it definitely distinguished her last night i think she was the one that kept reminding everyone, hey, this is the real problem over here i also thought the debate was pretty good last night for the first time of crystallizing the health care debate i thought joe biden did a pretty good job of saying, hey, and he was joined by mayor pete, and amy, you know, do we really want to give up our choice. do we really want not to be able to have insurance at work. >> do you think some of these candidates were moving more to the center than they had seemed previously willing to do >> it depends. obviously beto o'rourke talked about confiscating guns. that, you know, while we all want gun safety, except mitch mcconnell and the nra and the president, i think talking about confiscating guns is taking it to a place that no candidate for
7:09 am
president has ever done. >> senator mccaskill, always good to catch up with you after these nights thank you so much. another major story this morning, a tropical system it's expected to pose a threat to the bahamas, to florida, and other parts of the southeast still reeling from hurricane dorian dylan is in for al tracking it all. good morning. >> good morning, yes, this is the last thing the northern bahamas needs but we are keeping an eye on this potential tropical cyclone winds at just 30 miles per hour, but it is expected to strengthen as it takes this move to the north and west you can see there's a possibility as it moves through the northern bahamas, it could be a tropical storm. i want to point out with winds up to 40, 45 miles per hour at that point, you won't have all of that water being pushed on shore. we're not going to have that huge storm surge we saw with dorian, but we still could see several inches of rain we need to keep a close eye once again on the east coast of florida, still most of the storm is just offshore and the trends
7:10 am
could keep it to the east. this could produce rain, rip currents and minor beach erosion with some possibly some of that flooding as some of that water moves on to the beaches. the heaviest rain with this storm is sitting on the eastern side of it that keeps most of the rain out over the water we still could see about 2 to 4 inches of rain across the northern bahamas with isolated amounts of about 5 to 6 inches, lesser amounts along the east coast of florida but this is something we have to keep a close eye on through the weekend. guys >> dylan, thank you. we'll see you in a minute. craig has an update on the terrible dive boat fire off the california coast >> there are new developments on the investigation this morning the preliminary report from the ntsb shows that all six crew members were asleep at the time. even though the boat was required by federal law to have a night watchman joe fryer is following the story for us good morning to you. >> good morning, everyone. the 75 foot conception was on a three-day diving trip when it caught fire while anchored early in the morning on september 2nd. the charred remains of the boat were lifted out of the water
7:11 am
yesterday, nearly two weeks after that deadly fire as the ntsb investigates what happened and how the tragedy could have been prevented this morning, new details about the scuba boat fire that killed 34 people earlier last week off the coast of santa cruz island in california. the national transportation safety board confirming all six crew members on board the conception were asleep according to the report, a crew member required by law to stay awake and walk the decks overnight was sleeping when the fire broke out at 3:14 a.m an attorney for the boat's owner truth aquatics says in a statement that a crewman checked on and around the galley area around 2:30 a.m. the 75 foot boat had three levels, the night of september 2nd, five crew members were asleep on the top deck when the fire broke out on the second deck where the 33 passengers and one crew member were asleep. the sleeping quarters had an entrance and a safety hatch. that safety hatch leaving many questioning whether it was big enough to help passengers escape
7:12 am
and if they knew it was even there. also this morning, new concerns about lithium ion batteries in devices on the vessel. some on board may have been charging their electronics the coast guard issuing additional safety regulations in the wake of the tragedy such as limiting the unsupervised charging of lithium ion batteries and the use of powerid this strips and extension cords in a statement, the company says it passed every annual safety inspection and this tragedy was not caused by the operator, the boat or the crew. >> that the conception has been raised to the surface and it is being prepared to lift it on to a barge. it will then be transported to an undisclosed secure location. >> the exact cause of the fire has yet to be determined investigators are now asking witnesses to come forward and
7:13 am
urging previous passengers of truth aquatics trips to share their experiences. >> joe, thank you. in the meantime, the fda is expected to take a major step forward today in approving a pill that aims to protect children against severe peanut allergies. as we reported last month it would become the first therapy of its kind. and nbc's kathy park is on the story. good morning. >> good morning, this drug is intended to protect 1 million u.s. children and teens who are allergic to peanuts. after a year of treatment, nearly 70% of participants were able to tolerate a small amount of peanuts and now it's up to federal regulators to determine the drug's safety. this morning, a promising new peanut allergy drug for children could be getting closer to fda approval when a panel of health experts assigned to safety and effectiveness of ar 101. this first of its kind pill aimed at 4 to 17-year-olds contains a measured dose of peanut flour with the goal of building a tolerance for peanuts
7:14 am
over time. 67% of patients during the trial phase were able to eat 2 to 3 peanuts with no allergic reaction 11-year-old violet says the drug has worked for her. >> i can go to my friends' houses and not have to have them wipe everything down and clean and throw peanut butter away. >> the pill isn't meant to be a cure a small percentage experienced serious side effects violet still can't eat a peanut butter sandwich but no longer worries about the severe risk of accidental exposure in school or on a plane from the 1 million children and teens who suffer from peanut allergies, this treatment could be a game changer. erica murphy has lived with it her entire life with an epipen by her side. >> when you have a peanut allergy that's as severe as having an anaphylaxis reaction, you live your life in fear. >> reporter: today could be a pivotal moment for those with the fear of a life-threatening
7:15 am
reaction. patients would need to carry the epinephrine pen just in case and there's no treatment on the market currently. >> any idea when this might be available for kids >> the advisory committee is supposed to come out with a recommendation, they're supposed to give it the green light today, and then the fda will have a couple of months to act and then if approved the drug could be on the market as early as next year >> thank you, kathy. if you did not stay up late, you may have missed the dramatic end to the panthers/buccaneers game on thursday night football. >> panthers had a 2 point lead at this point until the 16 yard touchdown run by peyton barber, skip forward to the end of the game carolina with a chance to go back in front, and this is fourth down.
7:16 am
>> direct snap, faked the toss mccaffrey. >> christian mccaffrey, doing something he doesn't usually do, came up short. bucs would hold on to win, 20-14. they played that game after about a 30 minute lightning delay. so, yeah. >> what a finish one you had to wait until the end. >> for all of those panthers fans, it's a hard way to lose. >> dylan is back with the rest of the forecast. good morning. >> good morning, again, guys, it is going to be the hot one, especially down south, also in california we could see record high temperatures today as we once again get about 10 to 15 degrees above average, especially along the gulf coast, and ohio and tennessee river valleys. we could see isolated storms today. it's heavily raining through michigan and could move into ohio, and we could have heavier rain move into new mexico as well that's the weather across the country. we'll get to your local forecast in the next 30 seconds

7:31 am
they do not have to buy in. >> you just said that two minutes ago. you just said two minutes ago that they would have to buy in you said they would have to buy in are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago. are you forgetting already what you said just two minutes ago. >> the crowd did not like that some viewed his comments as a swipe at biden's age after the debate, castro denied those accusations saying it was merely a disagreement over biden's health care plan. it is judgment day for felicity huffman in federal court in boston. the actress set to become the first parent sentenced in the case that's led to dozens of arrests so far nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is outside the courthouse miguel, good morning. >> reporter: craig, good morning, it was in may when felicity huffman pleaded guilty to fraud charges the looming question today, will
7:32 am
she lose her freedom today if federal prosecutors get their way, actress felicity huffman could be sentenced to one month behind bars for her role in the college admissions scandal. but after pleading guilty to paying $15,000 to rig her daughter's s.a.t. scores, this week the probation department overseeing her case disagreed with prosecutors, telling the judge, there was no actual or intended loss from huffman's crime, perhaps setting the stage for no prison time with huffman asking for leniency, requesting probation, community service and a fine, she wrote the judge, i keep asking myself why did i do this, how could i abandon my own moral compass and common sense her husband, actor william h. macy who was not charged may also be in court today after telling the judge it's a pain i don't think she will ever
7:33 am
escape it's not clear when or how felicity will resume her acting career as huffman becomes the first parent to be sentenced, we are now learning of a confidential internal investigation at ucla five years ago coaches there were questioned about parent donations from recruits who were not standout athletes a striking and troubling similarity in the alleged pay-to play scheme that led to 51 arrests this year. ucla says after the investigation, it implemented a policy that a donation could not be accepted from families of prospects until the student athlete is enrolled. with some parents like lori loughlin pleading not guilty and moving closer to trial, this morning from one actress, a real life hollywood cliffhanger is about to come to its dramatic end. >> miguel, clearly there are a lot of other defendants watching very closely today and perhaps thinking this might signal something for their cases.
7:34 am
>> reporter: yeah, exactly, for many people, they think this is a litmus test, will the judge be lenient or not for felicity huffman, each case is weighed independently but it's up to the judge in every single case to give the sentencing. it will be her decision every time >> miguel almaguer at the courthouse thank you. we're talking about meghan trainor, guess who else is in the studio, coco gauff, along with her parents. meghan markle, a friend of hers who doesn't think she's being treated fairly. and a high-tech tool being used in middle to stop kids from vaping and catch them in the act too, right after this. before they even start. botox® is for adults with chronic migraine,

7:39 am
vaping is odorless this morning we're showing you how a high-tech school is helping schools take on this teen epidemic. on campuses across the country, students vaping in school, escaping detection in bathrooms and locker rooms recent numbers from the cdc show a startling rise in teen and tween users. e-cigarette use in middle school students spiked 48%. in high schoolers up 78%, with one in four admitting they vape. 3.6 million teens reporting they use e-cigarettes nicotine use under 25 can harm the parts of the brain that control attention, learning, mood, memory, and impulse control. and now the mysterious lung illness linked to vaping hundreds of possible cases and six confirmed deaths >> there's a learning environment, they come to school
7:40 am
to learn, not to vape. >> here the staff is taking an innovative approach to solving this problem. people don't think of a middle school as a hot bed for vaping what are you seeing on your campus >> we are seeing a tremendous increase in the last year, the highest numbers of reported use. >> reporter: the principal says it's really hard to tell if students are vaping, especially if it's happening in a private space like a bathroom or locker room, because obviously you can't have security cameras in here so they are relying on this device to be their detective it's called the fly sense vape detector sensors alert school administrators when they detect vapor from an e-cigarette. we hired two actors to help demonstrate how it works they are using vape pens that don't contain nicotine but the moment they exhale the vapor, the principal receives a text on his phone. this happens instantly, what do you do next. >> next we'll be able to send
7:41 am
the responder to bring them to my office and begin an investigation. >> reporter: students tell me they have seen kids as young as 6th grade vaping on campus. >> how many of you have seen others vaping? is it hard for kids to report other kids when you see them vaping, do you feel like you're being a tattletale. >> there's immense peer pressure and kids will get mad at you if you tell someone. >> are you any of you worried about your privacy. >> no, because it just detects if you're vaping or not. it's not like a camera or anything. >> reporter: how many of you think these sensors will cut down on the number of kids who are vaping on your campus. all of you do. derek peterson is the fly sense ceo. how do you address privacy concerns. >> there's no cameras, no microphones, no recording. think of a smoke detector or fire alarm in the bathroom >> reporter: the devices are installed in over a thousand schools across the u.s. and several other countries. >> what's your hope for this product? >> my end goal is to rid schools of the teenage vaping epidemic.
7:42 am

memoir from her difficult childhood to past relationships. >> moore played some of the most memorable film characters of the '80s and '90s. all these years later she wants people to see what her life was like offscreen, often more tumultuous and painful than the public knew. writing it she said has been a kind of therapy for her and her family demi moore paved her way in hollywood by portraying strong women. a widow in "ghost." >> something's going to get missed. >> a tough lawyer in "a few good men," but now the 56-year-old is revealing in her new memoir "inside out" she has had to tap into that strength off screen. among personal revelations, battles with drug addiction, broken marriages and being raped
8:10 am
when she was 15. in an excerpt she writes if you carry a well of shame and unresolved trauma inside of you, no amount of money, no measure of success or celebrity can fill it moore who was also gracing the cover of harper's bizarre next month tells her story from the beginning, including the lasting impact of her mother's multiple suicide attempts, in excerpt given to the magazine, moore writes, the next thing i remember is using my fingers, the small fingers of a child to dig the pills my mother had tried to swallow out of her mouth. something deep inside me shifted and it never shifted back, my childhood was over her career took off soon after turning 20, a rising star in hollywood, but as she got a taste of success, moore found herself in an abusive relationship with alcohol and cocaine, and obsessed with her weight even with those troubles, she went on to become one of the leading forces in hollywood, fighting for equal pay for
8:11 am
women. moore's friend, gwyneth paltrow telling the times, she was really the first person who fought for pay equality and got it and really suffered a backlash from it we all certainly benefitted from her. moore details her relationship with ashton kutcher, their 15 year age difference generating headline after headline, moore writing kutcher was a do over like i could just go back in time and experience what it was like to be young with him much more so than i had been able to experience it when i was actually in any 20s. moore said she became pregnant with kutcher's child but suffered a miscarriage six months later the couple tried to get pregnant again but didn't, that's when her drug and alcohol abuse returned their marriage ended but moore eventually found help in rehab the start of a process that moore says has allowed her to find some peace. >> does she talk more about why now was the time, people have been wanting to hear her story for a lot of years

8:13 am
miles per hour we have to watch this track because once again it's another storm approaching the coast of florida and then taking that turn and affecting the southeastern coast of the united states now, the trend has been for this to shift farther to the east, and most of the heavy rain is on the eastern side of the storm. that should help with flooding concerns along the coast, but still there is so much uncertainty right now as we track this storm, so it is worth watching as we go through the weekend. heavy bands of rain will be a threat through the bahamas as we go into tonight, and tomorrow, we could see as much as 5 to 6 inches of rain in some areas elsewhere, we have another area of severe weather today expected through michigan into ohio and some heavier rain down across good morning, i'm kari hall, our weather continues because of a high heat advisory for san francisco. we're going to see temperatures heating up fairly quickly
