tv   Way Too Early  MSNBC  September 13, 2013 2:30am-3:01am PDT

2:30 am
look at what's happened and what is to come. and twitter makes news with a tweet of its own. it's going public. we'll take a look at what it's learned from the facebook ipo debacle. that's right, i used the word debacle on a friday. this is "way too early". by the way did you pick up friday the 13th? i just picked it up. yeah. it's friday the 13th. i hope it's a good one for you. also this morning, if you missed the pay the the yot patriots/je two highlights that last 30 seconds. and you won't believe how much money anne hathaway wants for her closet. we'll have that for you in the kee cooler. but another american consulate coming under attack. two suicide bombs exploded in we were afghanistan. the state department says the
2:31 am
attackers pulled up to the front gate, started exchanging gunfire with security forces, a truck and suv exploded. taliban quickly claiming responsibility. we are told the consulate staff members are okay, but two members of the afghan security force are dead and at least seven at takitackers also kille. severe flooding in colorado. the city of boulder ordering thousands more to evacuate. creek levels right now dangerously high. and the state is bracing for an even more rain today after what's being called biblical rainfall amounts. colleen ferreira joining us with the latest. that is a stream or river, what is that behind you? >> reporter: this is called boulder creek. and you're right, thousands more people have been evacuated in colorado since thursday evening. i'm standing right here in boulder where the rain just doesn't want to stop. and it's these rushing
2:32 am
floodwaters that are really -- it's taken three live so is far in colorado. we have seen bridges taken out, roads taken out. we've also seen a lot of roads in colorado closed making it very difficult to travel from denver to boulder. we've also seen some major rescue efforts taking place, firefighters rescued a baby from rushing floodwaters yesterday in aurora, colorado. the worst part is we have a whole 'nother day ahead of us. this isn't over just yet. p. >> we've lost roads, we've lost bridge, home, cars. and we are just now beginning to try to assess the scope of the damage. >> reporter: now, to give you some perspective of the boulder creek and how fast it's running, yesterdayed boulder police chief tells us that this creek was running at 500 cubic feet per second. right now he tells us it's running at 3400 cubic feet per second.
2:33 am
but as you can see, floodwaters like there are just deadly. i'm colleen ferreira in boulder. back to you. >> so i'm assuming it's usually flowing quite calmly and nicely. we appreciate it. stay safe. as if the jersey shore needed more comeback challenges, a r raining fire destroyed a large portion of the boardwalk. the fire began at a frozen custard stand and quickly spread to neighboring businesses because of what was really a windy day. at least 80% of the board walk believed to be destroyed including 50 local businesses. the fire comes after months of a massive rebuilding effort to restore jersey shore of course after hurricane sandy. chris christie was on the scene and spoke about the fire. >> when i got my first full briefing before i left trenton to come here, i said i feel like i want to throw up. and that's me.
2:34 am
after all the effort and time and resources that we've put into help the folks in seaside park and seaside heights rebuild, to see this going on as i said is unthinkable. we'll get back to work. >> joining us for more, kristen dahlgren. >> reporter: yeah, just to give you some idea of what's going on right now, the governor said it well when he said it's up thinkable. take a look behind me, you can see they are still spraying it down.ake a look behind me, you see they are still spraying it down. they are still working trying to put out any hot spots. the fire is controlled, but this was burning so hot at its peak, ten alarms, that they're still concerned that it could be smoldering, so they are still working as they have been for so many hours now.
2:35 am
you have to look at these pictures and keep in mind this is an area that just reopened after super storm sandy. the boardwalk, the pier here suffered devastating damage. they reopened memorial day weekend, the governor himself cut the ribbon. and they went through the summer thinking that sandy was the worst that could happen to them and now we're here and so many people including officials saying this damage is likely worse than hurricane sandy. so really just a tough blow for people here. this they do, though, say they have done it before and they position they can rebuild again. >> thanks. of course that's right where bill kaerrins and i were when w went down there, they were working round the clock to rebuild that board walk. tough situation, but we know they will rebuild and be ready for next summer. john kerry agains a second day today of talks with the russians as the two sides try to reach an agreement on chemical
2:36 am
weapons. yesterday assad formally applied to join the treaty. that would require the syrian government to reveal all of it chemical weapons and its locations within 60 days. but kerry says that process is too close and that assad's words are not enough. >> this is not a game. it has to be real. it has to be comprehensive. it has to be verifiable. it has to be credible. it has to be timely. and implemented in a timely fashion. president obama has made clear that shoulddy pl diplomacy fail force might be necessary. >> and this is where it's getting more new answer oiged. today the "wall street journal" reporting a top secret unit is moving it chemical weapons to as many as 50 locations. why? to make it more difficult to
2:37 am
tag. such a move could make an air strike less effective. and while debate appears to be on hold, the one thing everyone in washington agree on is a common distaste to putin's op-ed. >> he's a kgb colonel who has never really abandoned the russian ambitions for apempire. >> i was insulted. >> i think he is looking for apexecution to show off his super bowl ring. >> it sickens me that we would have to sit there and read that. >> he says we're all god's children. i think that's great. i hope it applies to gays and lesbians in russia, as well. >> what makes somebody a journalist? some people think there are loose definitions of it, but even looser according to the senate judiciary committee. they defined it as someone
2:38 am
considered any employee, contractor or agent of a group that distributes news. student journalists would also be covered. the news could be distributed by a variety of means including television, newspaper, news website, news apps or books. but the definition does not apply to posts on twitter, blogs and other social media websites from nonjournalists. that's a pretty wide net for people who could call themselves journalists. california lawmakers have approved legislation that would allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses. the bill would make california the tenth state to allow up documented immigrants the right to obtain a driver's license. california governor jerry brown needily issued a statement indicating he'll sign the law, quote, this bill will enable millions of people to get to work safely and legally. hopefully we'll send a message to washington that immigration reform is long past due.
2:39 am

2:40 am
play for the day. when the sec is asking the major exchanges to look at their security systems, look at their technology and introduce more back stops because we've had a lot of problems, goldman sachs, big problems. talking about kill switches which will stop a lot of the problems, but wouldn't have stopped the most recent nasdaq issue. >> when i see free airline tickets, i think it's cool. on so tell me it's good enough to be true. >> united airlines had a glitch in their pricing system which meant prices were actually filed to zero, which meant you were paying $5, $10 for your flights. but unfortunately, it was taken down. the phone sensors stopped taking calls and they got themselves back up again. but i thought i'd have a crack and get a flight over to -- i found a round trip, i'll get on the 1205 from hero, i'll be be
