7:03 am
we are already feeling wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour and just look at this water right now because this is the real concern. you're going to have high tide later this morning and then you're going to not have that water recede tiltonight. so there are flooding concerns all across the east coast. this morning, it's scenes like these in pennsylvania. >> there it is right there. >> reporter: and in new york that have millions on edge. that massive nor'easter sitting off the east coast overnight packing heavy rain, snow and damaging winds. some people needing assistance because of those slipperyns. powerful storm already leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. >> i will be very careful. >> reporter: the roof of this produce business in north carolina smashed through by tree branches. in tennessee, heavy flooding forcing residents to kayak through their own front yards and in ohio more than 50,000 customers already without power. the storm now taking aim at the northeast with the potential for major coastal flooding.

7:08 am
roads. 6 to 12 inches of snow in the inland areas could easily see more than that upwards of 20 in some spots. but the big story is certainly going to be the wind and the coastal flooding with this. could be damaging winds on both that's going to be the hallmarks to this system. we'll talk about that powerful california storm in just a few minutes. >> going to be a long day. rob, thank you. >> to the white house and where president trump held a late night meeting with the national rifle association. the group's top lobbyist tweeted that the president does not want gun just a day after the presidentipartisan lawmakers comprehensive new legislation. our chief white house correspondent jon karl has the latest. >> reporter: at this point it's anybody's guess where the president stands and school safety all part of a topsy-turvy couple of days where he rattled financial markets with an announcement that caught his own economic team by surprise. a day after shocking his closest allies by seeming to embraceew

gun measures, president trump revealed h meeting last night with the nra's top lobbyist tweeting it wa a good, great meeting in the oval office. the nra's chris cox who met with trump and vice president pence suggested the president may have once again changed his tone on gun control. potus and vpotus swore the second amendment, support strong due process and don't want gun control. just a day earlier the president met with lawmakers in the white house and called for action on multiple gun measures opposed by the nra. telling the group they shouldn't be afraid to take the nra on. >> some of you people are petrified of the nra. you can't be petrified. >> reporter: one thing he embraced taking guns away from people considered a threat even without a hearing. >> i like taking the guns early. take the gunsfirst, go through due possess second. >> reporter: that put the president at odds with the nra and his republican base. >> i still support him, but he and i are just going to have to disagree on this idea of due
7:10 am
process. >> reporter: the oval office meeting with the nra wasn't the president's only surprise thursday. tunned markets and his own economic advisers by imposing new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. >> we're going to build our steel industry back and we're going to build our aluminum industry back. >> reporter: the move which sent markets tumbling deeply divided the president's economic team. the president's top economic adviser gary cohn had firmly opposed them costs for american manufacturing and could trigger a trade war. just an hour before the announcement, top white house aides were assuring people that the tariffs were not coming. i am told the president only decided to go forward as he was meeting with those steel executives that ultimately were by his side as he madeannouncement and, george look at this this another one sure to catch some of his when a country, usa, is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with trade wars areood and easy to
7:11 am
win. he goes on ending it is easy. trust me some of his top and most economists might take issue with on a mini tweet storm taking on alec baldwin but you saw that is it certain he will follow through with that and will gary cohn leave if he does? >> reporter: nothing is sure around here first of all, but i tell you that white house officials are telling me the president fully intends to go through with this announcement next week. as for gary cohn he fought tooth and nail to prevent it then he was caught by surprise when it happened. i've had several people at the white house question whether or not he can stay here or whether he will resign. >> okay jon karl thanks very much. michael. >> thank you, george. we bring in our chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis for more on the plunging stock market and good morning to you, rebecca. the dow closed down more than 400 after the president announced these new tariffs. >> first of all wall street does
7:12 am
not like to hear the word trade war so while this is helpful to u.s. steel and aluminum companies which have been lobbying for these tariffs and whose stocks surged on the announcement it means american manufacturers will have to pay more for those materials and could mean price hikes so think of any product that comes in a can, beer soda that uses aluminum and steel, cars building materials like wiring and beaming, all of those businesses see their costs go up and the question is if that's the case how much of that do they ultimately aspass along to consumers and what is the ripple effect? >> do not mess with the pepsi light. they could cost more because of this so what are these companies saying about this? in we've heard from a handful of companies. molson coors where unclear what it will specifically do to prices, they are saying that u.s. consumers would surely suffer. they're calling the move disappointing.

7:15 am
long. >> reporter: raisman who brought home olympic gold for team usa in 2012 and 2016 -- >> it has been worth it. >> reporter: alleging that the organizations are partly to blame for enabling her abuser dr. larry nassar. her lawyers say the organizations put their quest for money and medals above the safety of minor competitive athletes, claiming they failed to adequately enforce policies which would prevent employees from engaging in sexually abusive misconduct. the lawsuit also alleging the organizations failed to report nassar's suspected history of sexual abuse to raisman and her parents. >> treatments with you were mandatory. you took advantage of that. lying on my stomach with you on my bed insisting that your inappropriate touch would help to heal my pain. >> reporter: the suit also showing in letter the former head of usa gymnastics sent to the usoc in describing the

eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. the leader. the best.
