gadgets that can cook t perfect bird they s in less time than you ever could have imagined. >> it's calle send out let's get righ to today's top sty. the sere weather and the reat of tornadoes touching down in the midwestith millions of pele potentially in harm's way. the weather channel's mike seidel is in covington, kentucky. good morning, mike. >> reporter: good morning, lester. a rainy and warm metro cincinnati. temperatures around 60, about 25 degrees above average for mid november and also very humid out here. that'she reason we're expecting severe weather. a rather outbreak of severe weather and tordoes. typically have a second season i the deep south with twisters, but not this far north. an action packed jet streechl has led the storm predictn cent to issue a rare high risk. sometimes we see those in the springnd ummer, march, apri y, but not in november. this igoing to be a very
dangerous y. if you don't get the tornadoes aftethe threat diminishes, straight line wind damage all the way east in the ntheast and these storms this morning are moving likehey're late for a date, lester, racing as fast as60 miles an hour outside of chico. it's going to hit and hit very quickly. >> batten down the hatches. dylan has the big picre. she's new york acking the severe weather. >> we have a huge area where we could see rong storms today. this is from michigan into mississippi and alabama, stretching east into pennsylvan and back west into eastern iow a closer look showsot only storms in the huge area, bu the strong risk ea. it's very rare whe we get a high risk any time of year, but especially this farorth this far into novembe it's in e yeow from chigan into parts okentucky, into io and west into illinois including the chicago area where a tornado outbreak is likely. that's what's ing issued by
the storm prediction ceer. we could see very strong tornadoes and lontrack tornadoes, meaning they cou ay on the groundor a long period of time. this is all ging to starto get going this afternoonnd into the evening. ahead of the cold frt, it's warm and humid on the east side d very cold and dry on the back se. it's the clash of air masses that could create these song stor. as mike seidel mentioned, it's movingery quickly. not onlyill we see these storms develop, but ty'll have wind gusts on tir own as well. while tornadoes ar possible, where we don't have the tornadoes, these storms are stro enough to produce gusts upwards of 60 miles per hour. >> lan, thanks. we've been talking a lot about football and bullyi lately in the wake of the allegations surrounding miami dolphins players. this morning there are new claims to rert but this time the college level.
a player with the rutgers universityootball team says he was verbally abed by one of the coaches. kristen hlgren ha more on that story. >> that player, jevon tyree says it was so bad he quit the team. while he doesn't want to talk out it, his mom does his mother told us the team's defensive coordator dave cohn used vulgarities and threatened physic harm to her 19-year-old son during a confrontation in study ll. >> he threatened ysical assault saying if he could, he wod head butt him. >>eporter: she says the abus was so bad he gave up his scholarship and quit the team on novemb 6th after the claimor a full investigation was ignored. >> our expectationt that point was that jevon would be able to function in a safe,
non-discriminatory environment. >> reporter: in a written atement released friday ght, they say cohen apologized the following day. the school says he was reprimanded and it was an olated incident and tt, quote, at no te was there any threat of physical violence which was verified by an academic counsel who was present in the room. after theteam loss saturday, rutgers coach mi flood wouldn't comment directly but did talkbout how the controversy is affecting the team. >> i think itwould be naiv to say that there wasn't a certain gree of distraction that happened to us over the last day or so. >> reporter: the accusatio come less than a year after rutgers men's basketball coach mike rice was fired amid abuse allegaons. it rulted in the resignation of theschool's athletic dictor. mao rutgers brack in the headlines as the family claims its notacking down.
>> as soons we understood that there was that sort of overt verbal, abusive bullying attack onim by one of coach flood's head coach, that's unacceptable. >> here is another direct contradiction. rutgers claims the new athleti director julie hernnn spoke with the family and made sure theyere satisfied with the family's resolution. the tyree family cims they never had a convsation with her so this is likely not the last we've heard of it. >> kristen, thanks. turning now to politics an prident obama's rough week withhe future of his health care plan up in the air and a series o apologies thiseek for its botched rollout, "saturday night livetook a lile time to poke a little n at t situation la ght. >> are you feeling depressed, run down, like you just can't n? are you t president of the
united states? ask your doctor for axil, second-term strength, the only antideessant rong enough for an embattled send term. >> not sure that plays as well in the white house as it des maybe to us. david gregory is tt moderator of "meet the pres" goodmorning. >> goomorning e erica. presidt obama's health care compared to katrina. you liken it more to his iraq war. what do youean by tht? >> that's life d ath. this isnot. i don't meano use that comparison. think for president bush in his second term the iraq war became theverarching issue and his handlinof it became the issue throug whichever thing else was judged. he wanted too immration reform, he was still in e iraq bo that's how implementation o health care will befor this president for the balanceof his second term, somebodyho is managing obama care, he'll be judged more terms of what
else government can do or should do. it will all be about the ndling of it. th is kind of progressive governnt on trial here in a sense. can a ctral goverent do something that big and transformative and do it wel? i thi that's a big test for this president's worldiew. >> the president ss when he was apologizing on thursday, knowledging he needed t in his words w back credibility of the americ people, do he al need to win back the edibility of his own party, especially after what we saw in e house this week? >> it'sess about credibility and more out panic. democrats see a shaken presidency and they care more about hithan themselves especially whenhey're upor re-election and he's not. if it's not gng well, they m pay thprice next year in a midterm race. it's still a little early for that because we're in the middle of this terrible couple weeks he on obama ca. is can fade. the only thin that succeeds is success when comes to
plementation. it seems like there's going to be a lot of difficules to be managed. the longer thi goes n, the more problematic it is politically. >> turning to 2016, rumblings abt paul ryan after being in wa thisweekend. is he seriously eyeing a bid? >> i think he's taking a real look at it and making an asssment. i think anody on the republican sidis trying to figure out whether the establishment can win out over theore muscular conservative wing of the pay, t cruz, nd paul and others. chris christie's victory gave him some fortitude here. i think paul ryan is someone who is kind of an architect a lot of the ecomic policies of the republican part feels like he's in a position to push it in a n direction. he saw what happenewith the roey campaign and realizes th need some change. he's going to represe more o an establishment wing which is teresting it means the pty has moved further right it's consided >> david gregory, nice to talk
with you. we'll eck in with you in just a bit for a closer look on "meet the press." let's get a chk of the other top stories. craig melvin is here with those. >> good morning. we start in the philipnes whe the nation's president toured the typhoon ravaged cty taclob. ian williams ithere with the latest. ian, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig. recriminations today, presiden aqno down in the disaster area blaming local governments for lack of preparation for this huge cyclone which has now dilaced, we understand, four million people,the latest th toll up to 4,000. that sai this mass save aid operation is gainingraction. aid is reaing somef th more far-flung plas. here in tacloban we are seeing quite significant signs o change. gas stations opening, mmerce
