7:03 am
on thursday. today, the beaches are open, but authorities are on control. >> we'll continue to monitor and maybe be a little bit more beach-oriented tomorrow in the water until we can get a handle on the situation. >> reporter: for the last century in north carolina, there were just 90 shark attacks. >> this is highly unusual. >> reporter: last thursday's was the first reported in the state this season. with others turning up in florida and hawaii already this year, beachgoers this summer are on high alert. for "today," gabe gutierrez, nbc news. >> get more on this now with chris anselmo, the oak island fire chief. good morning. >> good morning. >> what can you are tell us about the condition of the two teenagers who suffered shark bites over the weekend? >> what i can tell you is about 4:20 yesterday afternoon, we did receive a call for a possible shark attack right about where
7:04 am
we are standing. about an hour and a half later at 5:40, we received another call about two miles down the road from here, down the beach. this one here involved a 13-year-old girl and down the beach involved a 16-year-old male. >> and i guess a lot of people are probably wondering this morning, you have the first attack, and 90 minutes later, another attack. was there thought to closing the beaches or closing the water? >> at this time, they are not closing the beach. they did go out last night in the few hours that we had left of daylight and warn people to try to stay out of the water at that time. this is an isolated incident. i have been here for 16 years. i have been the chief for three. but i have been on this island in the fire department for 16 years. and we have never had this incident not just on this beach but on the other beaches in this county. >> well, let me ask you about that. you say it is an isolated
7:05 am
incident. it sounds like it's pretty rare. but there was an attack thursday and two yesterday. can you really guarantee, can you really say the waters are are safe right now? >> well, we can't guarantee anything. i mean, you know, these are ocean waters. so, i mean, you know, there is a lot of fish and sharks that live out in the ocean. there is nothing we can do to control that. we can only educate people to be careful this the water. and from 4:00 on, i would stay out of the water. that would be my thoughts. >> all right, chief anselmo. i know you are working hard with the other authorities to make sure the beaches are safe. thank you for your time, sir. we really appreciate it. >> okay. thank you. and now to the other big story we have been following. the search for escaped prisoners from upstate new york this morning. joyce mitchell, the woman accused of helping them break
7:06 am
free, goes before a judge for the second time as the hunt for the men enters its tenth day and authorities appear no closer to catching them. miguel almaguer is in new york. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is where joyce mitchell will make her second court appearance in full jail garb. she's pled not guilty. investigators say she tried to help the inmates escape and they say she planned a life with them on the run. she's the prison employee now behind bars. the district attorney says over the last 18 months, joyce mitchell had an unusual relationship with convicted killers david sweat and richard matt. >> individuals such as matt and sweat can become very manipulative. >> reporter: while at the prison, multiple sources familiar with the case say mitchell was investigated for a sexual relationship with sweat. then matt charmed her, so much so, she thought she was in love. after learning plans of their
7:07 am
escape, this criminal complaint says mitchell smuggled hacksaw blades, chisels, a punch and a screwdriver bit into the prison. sources say after they squeezed, shimmied and crawled their way out, sweat and matt left behind not one but a trail of post-it notes like this one. the d.a. says mitchell agreed to be the getaway driver, meeting the dangerous duo at this power plant for a midnight rendezvous. was her thought process to help them escape and go on the run with them? >> it appears that way. it appears that way, based on her statements and i think at the last moment, she bailed out. >> reporter: the district attorney said mitchell was told the three would drive seven hours toward an unknown location where they would meet an off-road vehicle. mitchell never showed, getting cold feet, says the d.a. because she didn't want to hurt her husband, also a prison employee.
7:08 am
>> to the extent any state employee was involved in facilitating the escape, that's a crime in and of itself. and that will be fully prosecuted. >> reporter: this morning, 800 officers are desperately searching for two dangerous men, gone ten days now. convicted killers who could be anywhere while their alleged accomplice is behind bars. the district attorney believes the inmates stole tools from contractors to help dig their way out of jail -- prison, excuse me and used them overnight from midnight to 5:00 a.m. and replaced them every morning so they would not notice they were missing. the d.a. is investigating joyce mitchell and what she planned to do after she was to be their getaway driver. carson? >> bernard kerik was the corrections commissioner before
7:09 am
being police commissioner. served three years in federal prison. good morning. >> thank you. >> day ten and governor cuomo is saying we don't know if they are in the immediate area or in mexico by now. time for a new game plan? >> one thing i think of is these guys were looking at life, locked in a 12 x 8 cell. they have a plan, a good plan. took weeks to months to come to fruition. i don't know if she was the key to the escape. these guys, you know, you have one shot at this. you have one shot. you make a plan. they knew where they were going. i think she could have been a decoy. >> let's put up google maps to get an idea where it is. they have a two-hour drive to vermont. montreal is an hour and 20 minutes away. >> they could have had a secondary plan. she thought she was supposed to be the pickup. they had to have cell phones, communications. they could have contacted somebody on the outside. >> she couldn't have been the only person to help out on the inside. tell me about it.
7:10 am
>> well, there are security issues. there are hourly checks, half hourly checks at night. keep in mind last time they were seen at night was 10:30. they were discovered missing at 5:30 in the morning. that's probably 14 different checks within the cell that should have been made, obviously wasn't. they had a long time before anybody realized they were gone. you know, seven hours. >> most prisons are on the outskirts of cities. clinton seems to be in the middle. there is a car dealership across the street, a school bus picking up kids. these are criminals. one escaped from prisons before. are you surprised at the freedoms they had inside? >> as a corrections commissioner, i want to know who created the honor dorm to put somebody that killed a cop and an escape artist already convicted of escape, who put them in an honor dorm? who gave them certain freedoms who gave them certain freedoms i don't think they should have had? >> do you think they slipped through or is it a matter of time? >> it's a matter of time.
7:11 am
they will get caught eventually. >> back to you, savannah. >> carson, thank you. turn to politics and the race for the white house. two familiar names kick the campaign into high gear today. jeb bush will announce he's running in miami and hillary clinton is trying to woo voters in iowa after her announcement and relaunch over the weekend. nbc senior white house correspondent chris jansing is in miami where governor bush will announce today. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this is where it starts for jeb bush in the state where he twice served as governor. he spent the weekend relaxing with his family. today, his job is to deliver a speech to regain lost momentum and set up a battle of political heavy-hitters. the stage is set, swathed in red, white and blue and the introductory videos are now rolling. >> proud we could make a difference, to change lives. >> reporter: after six months of planning and pressing the flesh, jeb goes after the office once held by his father and brother. >> it's an exciting time.
7:12 am
>> reporter: it's not the campaign he expected it to b. there was a staff shakeup and policy stumbles on iraq that made donors nervous. bush faces a crowded field that even the competition calls impressive. >> they have a lot of youth, energy, significant diversity. and they are no dummies. >> reporter: of course, that's not all jeb bush is facing. after her weekend campaign kickoff, hillary clinton is back in the state she lost in 2008 for an iowa house party, simulcast to 650 other watch parties around the country. and at a rally, she called on her old boss to negotiate a better trade deal. >> the president should listen to and work with his allies in congress, starting with nancy pelosi. >> reporter: that comment an example of the challenge for both members of america's
7:13 am
political dynasties, how to liberate themselves from the past and at 62 and 67, embody the future. >> i don't have to disassociate from my fan. i love them. i know that for me to be successful, i have to the show my heart, tell my story. >> reporter: the campaign showed off its new logo, no sign of the family name. voters don't know that much about jeb bush. he'll talk about his record as governor. he'll talk about leadership and about washington dysfunction. kind of a jab at the four republican senators running for president. then, like hillary clinton, he'll hit the road to the early primary states. savannah, carson? >> and we're off. thank you very much. now to the weather as tens of millions face storms and flooding this this week. al, what are they dealing with? >> it's interesting. this system doesn't have to be named to cause massive problems and devastating flooding. this is san antonio. they got several inches of rain yesterday.
7:14 am
this is before the big system even comes on shore. this is amazing. odessa, texas, overnight. they had about three inches of rain, causing massive flooding, big problems. flooded roads and a lot of businesses and homes getting flooded as well. they had to have some evacuations. here's what we are watching. right now, there is what's called an invest area. 91-l. right now, they are investigating. they have hurricane hunters in this thing now. it's 430 miles southeast of houston. 40 miles per hour winds with an open circulation. not a closed circulation yet. we expect it will be named bill the in the next 48 hours. high pressure is locked in place. that's the steering mechanism bringing all this moisture on shore. even if it doesn't get named, all of the moisture gets pumped up into texas where they have already had at least ten to 12 inches of rain. so, we have widespread flooding
7:15 am
in this area. look at some of these rainfall amounts through thursday morning. we are talking about seven to eight inches of rain. some areas locally could be a foot or more of rain already in a generally saturated year. as the system comes on shore, guys, usually they weaken because there is so much moisture in the ground. as the moisture evaporated, it brings out energy. this thing can strengthen as it moves inland. texas, oklahoma, missouri. we're going to be talking about it all week. >> turn to natalie now. in libya, the u.s. military was targeting the leader of an al qaeda affiliate in libya. belmokhtar was killed in an attack along with other
7:16 am
militants, but they are looking at the operation and cannot confirm the death. the pentagon says he's responsible that killed 38 people, including three americans. a louisville police officer is on administrative leave after shooting a man who charged at him with a flagpole. saturday's incident was caught by a surveillance cameras. one of the officers confronted the suspect. he grabbed a flagpole and swung it at the officer. the suspect died at the hospital. a full investigation is now under way. a natural gas pipeline ruptured in south texas overnight sparking a massive fire. it happened about 85 miles southeast of san antonio. the ball of flames could be seen from 20 miles away. and there were no reports of injuries, fortunately. but seven homes were evacuated. the fire is now out. the golden state warriors, now just one win away from an nba championship after beating the cleveland cavaliers sunday
7:17 am
night in game five of the nba finals. lebron james had 40 points for the cavs, but that wasn't enough. steph curry led the warriors with 37 points. they win it 104-91. golden state now leading the series 3-2. game six tomorrow night back in cleveland. that would be heartbreaking for cleveland if the golden state warriors win. don't forget, game six of the stanley cup final. the blackhawks and the lightning. chicago with a 3-2 lead. you can see that right here on nbc tonight, 8:00 eastern/5:00 pacific time. exciting sports. >> two good series there. >> excellent. >> got to keep it all straight. >> especially hockey because it's on nbc. >> exactly. kiss up to the boss today. >> ding, ding, ding! >> do you have a shiny apple as well? >> it's monday. we'll get to your local forecast after a message from our sponsor, shell.

rachel dolazal was supposed to make a statement tonight, but that's been cancelled. we'll talk to her parents. first, the latest from hallie jackson. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. many folks here in spokane just want to know why rachael dolezal did what she did. she's been expected to talk about it tonight before the abrupt change of plans less than 24 hours ago. we have learned local naacp leaders may still meet even without dolezal as fallout from the controversy intensifies. >> i was wondering if your dad really is an african-american man. >> that's a very -- i don't know what you're implying. >> reporter: this morning, more questions about when rachael dolezal may talk about why she's apparently been pretending to be black. >> i think she was only trying to match how she felt on the inside.
7:33 am
>> reporter: angela works with dolezal in eastern washington university's africana studies program. >> if she feels there is injustice, boom, she'll be on it. if people perceive her as an angry black woman she finds that empowering. >> if you are living in an all-black community, you understand. >> reporter: dolezal's lectured on topics like african-american women and hair and mentored members of the black student union. >> i don't think it matters what your ethnicity is. it was a gift what she taught us. >> reporter: others feel betrayed. we are learning more about dolezal's complicated family history. >> she told me not to blow her cover about what she was doing over there in spokane with her new identity. >> reporter: her brother says they last spoke in 2012. >> she's done some good. she could have done so much better if she would have just stayed honest about everything. >> reporter: dolezal is estranged from her parents, saying she's caucasian by birth, prompting this viral exchange with a reporter. >> are you african-american? >> i don't understand -- i don't
7:34 am
understand the question. >> reporter: dolezal's reported being the victim of more than half a dozen possible hate crimes in a decade in mostly white areas of washington and idaho. investigators say they have found nothing to substantiate the allegations, though the fallout is far from over. we could know as early as this week the results of an investigation by the city of spokane into whether dolezal lied about her race on a government application. meantime, the naacp released a statement backing dolezal's advocacy record pointing out you don't have to be black to be a leader within the organization. >> thank you so much. larry and ruthanne dolezal are rachel's parents. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> good morning. >> i think a lot of people look at the story and scratch their heads. it's one thing to identify with a culture, care about it, advocate for it. you are suggesting she's lying about her background. you know her better than anybody, presumably. why would she do that?
7:35 am
>> we are puzzled. we're not sure. >> she may have felt that she had some advantage in her activism by being portrayed as a black woman. >> okay. but some of the claims she's reportedly made over the years are pretty dramatic, that she was born in a teepee, had to use bows and arrows to hunt for food as a child, lived in south africa. what's the motive for making such claims, assuming those aren't true? >> those are all false claims. i think rachel has tried to damage her biological family and those kind of claims, as false as they were, seem to serve her purposes in her mind. >> have you ever confronted her about this? >> no, we have not, because rachel has not wanted to talk to us. she's distanced herself from us. made it very clear she doesn't
7:36 am
want us around or in communication with her. >> let me ask you, one of the other surprising aspects of this story for a lot of people is this all became public when you, her parents, revealed what her true heritage is. and i guess the question is why did you feel you needed to go public with it? >> well, we had never been asked to be involved. we had never been questioned before. but just short of a week ago, we were contacted by the coeur d'aline press. i guess it was part of some investigative reporting being done. somehow, they got wind of us as her parents as a possibility. and so they contacted us to see if we were, in fact, her parents. and we taught our children, as we raised all six of them, tell the truth. always be honest. so we weren't going to lie.
7:37 am
we told the truth. rachel is our birth daughter. >> you mentioned that you haven't talked to her in several years. it sounds like you are estranged and there are obviously some complicated family dynamics here. she's even made a claim of physical abuse in your home. do you have anything to say about that? >> yes. she knows we were not abusive parents. people who know us also know that. before rachel tried to change her identity, she was proud of us as her parents, wanted to introduce us to her friends. it's a dramatic change. >> before i let you go, what do you want to happen here? what do you hope the outcome is and what would you say to her if you had a chance to speak to her? >> well, i will comment on the first question. we still hold out hope that we'll be able to be reconciled some day. >> and we hope rachel will get the help she needs to deal with
7:38 am
her identity issues. of course, we love her, and hope that she will come to a place where where she knows and believes and speaks the truth. >> and we are always ready, as parents, to forgive and move on. >> larry and ruthanne dolezal, i appreciate your time this morning. thank you. >> thank you, savannah. let's get a check on the weather now from al. >> announcer: today's weather is brought to you by royal caribbean international. no one knows the caribbean like royal caribbean. >> we have wet weather move through the northeast. getting more showers and thunderstorms passing just through philadelphia and just to the south. we are looking for rain today through thursday from the northeast, about an inch. as you get into the midwest, the tropical moisture that will hit texas.

9:46 am
and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleedin g, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not tak e xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any kidney liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. when we go to the store i find my box of honey bunches of oats, and i'm checking to see if i packaged it. he says "it has a certain code that's my line, this is the date." if the last 3 letters were p22, that's me.

9:57 am
money. but the clerk talked him out of it. instead the man just walked off with a pack of gum. clerk called 911, officers found the man hiding behind a hotel presumably with the gum. he confessed to the crime and was arrested. police say he's a homeless man with a last known address in indiana. well turning to basketball only one game stands between the warriors and an nba championship after last night's win. the warriors will have a chance to take it all tomorrow game six in cleveland at 6:00. let's check your weather with kari. good morning. i'm meteorologist kari hall. we start out with some low clouds and patches of fog, but warm afternoon sunshine. to help you plan out the day by lunchtime in the peninsula we're at 68 degrees. san francisco 63 degrees. in the tri-valley 74 degrees. by the evening we have temperatures reaching 75 degrees for the ride home. 4:00 we're at 75 degrees there. south bay 83 degrees. warming up in spots.

10:01 am
another young boy today. >> plus two people who lost 400 pounds but found each other and fell in love. they're our newest story. >> i love a love story. can we say happy birthday to a cute five-year-old? >> of course. >> a cute little five-year-old girl named ella. she's so adorable. >> ella, the birthday girl. she's a cute little thing and i want to wish her a happy, happy birthday. >> you had a very big weekend. you were out with rugby players. >> i was. by the way, rugby players are very beef cakey, as you pointed out. >> yes, they are. >> joel had a rugby banquet so we went to celebrate guys getting inducted to the hall of fame. we went to manhattan beach -- i'm on snapchat. by the way, that takes ten seconds. >> thank the lord. >> but it's cool. beautiful place, fun group and nice people and just one last little thing -- i waited patiently for five weeks, i
10:02 am
think. my dog has been gone at boot camp and he's coming back tomorrow. for behavioral issues. >> i wonder why. phenomenon i wonder how you looked the day that was taken. [ laughter ] well, nothing like the picture of a cute dog except if it's a cute picture of little royal babies. they're at a polo match. look at george. look at that he's in the same little thing, right? >> they do look so similar that's one of our favorite all time. >> we throw this in because it's so precious. but he did kind of steal the show at great grandma's birthday. >> of course he did. >> you know the old saying it doesn't matter who wears the abouts in the family, the one who wears the diapers calls the shots. now it's charlotte. so what else will we talk about? do you want to talk about --
10:03 am
>> we have to. >> okay. some days are better than others for the headlines as we know. you know about this story about these inmates who escaped the prison in upstate and it was an inside job and this love sick woman allegedly, although they're saying she has confessed. >> i think she has -- no i think she plead not guilty to the whole situation but they said when they were questioning her she did talk about how there was some kind of a romantic deal between two. okay, so she apparently, according to what police believe, she aided and abetted. she helped them escape and she was supposed to be the getaway driver, she didn't show up, she got cold feet and in a lot of the papers and things they're talking about how another layer to this was one of those guys was supposed to whack her husband and they'd all live happily ever after. >> her first husband was on the air a few days ago talking about
10:04 am
how his wife was a vulnerable kind of country girl and she's susceptible to people convincing her of things and maybe that's what happened. but our takeaway was when you open up the papers in morning and look at the headlines, i'm sorry, no one has funnier headlines. >> the "daily news" says "not tonight, i have a killer headache." >> and the "new york post" went "whack job" which is clever but not kind. conned planned hits on hubby. that was hoda's personal favorite. she pled not guilty to a felony charge of promoting prison contraband and nbc news is reporting that mitchell was investigated for having some kind of a sexual ins twenty the escapee david sweat. >> it happens. [ laughter ] >> you know, it's so crazy how that goes down, you know what i mean? >> that's -- i've never watched but i guess you can't write this stuff, it's like "orange is the new black" is this unbelievable
10:05 am
stuff that goes on. >> but when you think about how -- you know look -- and i think her husband this woman's husband lyle worked for the prison too, doing something else. everybody's there. anyway -- >> who said prison is boring? >> where are these guys, snow. >> that's the sad part. people are living in fear. all right, based on that story, do you trust women who don't have girlfriends? >> so think about your friends or the people out there, the women you know. so if you're -- the friends who have fewer female friends, think about them. there are some women who get along better with men. there are some women -- >> or they're just more comfortable with them. anyway, this woman wrote an essay basically that says she doesn't trust girls with no female friends. i get it. i get. that i think it's a little -- i think if you can't bond with
10:06 am
other women and you only bond with men i think there's something that's a little off about that to me. >> what if you have been, like, abandoned by friends or women or somebody and you have an abandonment issue or intimacy issue, you're afraid to be close to people because you've been hurt in the past. that might explain it as well. >> that i get. but i also think if you have trouble making female friends, it might be you you know what i mean? >> you have to look at it. you have to ask yourself the question. >> hoda won't give up on. >> this okay. there's an article in the paper and it's about chris rock getting a divorce. but there's a picture here of a girl who looks exactly like somebody else. >> sean roth. >> it's not the case. speaking of that, there's something about the length of a man's fingers.
