7:56 am
we have the details. >> what's happening is we're under the influence of the same setup, but the snow and rain moved out. the entire area from 10:00 a.m., a first alert. we're looking at gusts this morning between 35 and 45 miles per hour. and still around 35 to 40 this afternoon. that means that's enough that it could knock a loose branch down on the ground on top of a car, falling debris is possible. minor to mod cerate flooding possible. the winds have come town in the last couple hours. around 30 in allentown and coatesville and 30 for atlantic city. the wind gusts enough to cause a mess throughout your morning. speaking of mess, look at this. this is a tree that fell down on city avenue. traffic had to get around it
7:57 am

7:58 am
7:59 am
8:00 am
good morning. deadly nor'easter. a relentless winter storm unleashing fury along the east coast. at least seven people killed with countless water rescues and more lives at risk today. the rising waters threatening residents from virginia to maine. we are live in the thick of it. captured. authorities arrest the 19-year-old superintendent spec gunning down his parents on the central michigan campus. and best and worst in show. the red carpet rolls out, but the razzies are celebrating the
8:01 am
worst in film. today, saturday, march 3rd, 2018. ♪ >> i am celebrating my tenth birthday with "today." >> my first time in nyc! ♪ >> siblings weekend in nyc. >> hi, grandma and grandpa. ♪ >> good morning. welcome back to "today" on saturday morning. what a difference a day makes. it is not over yet. >> for us living in new york city and i think through the northeast, you have seen this, too. this wind whipping against the windows. windows shaking. >> we are not out of it yet. the top story. we begin with the news and the powerful winter storm bringing heavy winds and coastal flooding
8:02 am
to the east coast. we have nbc's kristen dahlgren in hard hit massachusetts with more. christin kristen, good morning. >> reporter: we are in the location where they had to rescue people overnight in the construction loaders. this morning, the national guard still standing by here because we have another high tide coming in with the threat of more major flooding. this storm is compared to the perfect storm back in 1991 because of how long it has lasted and how strong it has been. we have seven deaths between 2 and 3 million people without power and travel has just been a nightmare from the roads to the rails. amtrak restoring limited service between boston and washington this morning. thousands of flights were canceled. really a tough travel day and this is not over. we have the next high tide coming and also while the rain has stopped, we have high winds continuing through the day. we could see more trees and more power lines down.
8:03 am
back to you. >> kristen, thank you. dylan is over at the wall with the latest on the storm. where is it going? >> it is not over as far as the winds are concerned. the storm is well over the atlantic. it will continue to push away as we go through the day. any rain or snow at this point is very light. just a couple of bands to the southeast of nantucket. it is not going to be sunny right off the bat this morning. at least we are done with the heavy precipitation. the winds will remain an issue throughout the day. we have wind advisories in nantucket and martha's vineyard with the high wind warnings. we have the threat of coastal flooding with the several high tides lasting through sunday. especially along the coast of massachusetts and down through long island and to the mid-atlantic where we have the coastal flood warnings. as that water pushes onshore with the high tide, we have the potential for coastal flooding for areas in low lying areas along the coast. we will notice the winds begin to ease a touch as we go through
8:04 am
the day. instead of 70-to-90-mile-an-hour winds, they will be reasonable at 30-to-40 miles an hour. this is high enough to cause delays at the airport. nantucket gusting close to 50. in new york, we only have 8-mile-an-hour winds. you see we are dealing with some i ho improvements. winds gusting to 20 to 30 miles per hour and this week this whole thing will be over. >> what a mess. dylan, thank you. also this morning, a lot of questions remain after president trump announced new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. we have kelly o'donnell here the president's estate in florida. >> reporter: the president is here for a fund-raiser before heading back to washington today where he will have to smooth over international relationships with close american friends from canada to asia to europe.
8:05 am
the president made this international dispute sound like something quite simple when he tweeted the country the u.s. is losing billions on trade with every country it does business with. trade wars are good and easy to win. to say he would back up american and steel manufacturers with tariffs is the trade message. that is not new. the way he did this, abruptly announcing it and not telling allies or lawmakers or some within the white house has been the real surprise here. it comes at a time of particular turmoil in the white house with the departure of aide hope hicks and continued pressure on the president's son-in-law jared kushner who saw his own security clearance downgraded in the last week. and kushner remains under scrutiny with the special counsel russia investigation. a lot for the trump white house. this is a big issue if the president follows through and

9:00 am
us. that could cause trees to come down. branches to come down and possibly more wires to come down. our meteorologist is tracking it for us in the neighborhood forecast. >> yeah. keeping up with the first look for the entire area through 10:00 a.m. we're leaving the alert in effect because we're dealing with gusts around 35 to 45 miles per hour. as we speak, the wind are starting to taper off. we're seeing more in the 30 range than the 40 range. it's a good sign. nonetheless, if you have a tree that was weak, the gusts this morning could be just enough to knock them over. we're also tracking right now the potential for some of what looks like mostly minor coastal flooding. the good news is although models are projecting moderate flooding, i haven't seen anything pointing that direction and it's likely the facts are helping us coming from the northwest. an offshore wind is beneficial for flooding concerns. look at the current wind
