>> wow. >> here in new york city 83 degrees. it's hotter in new york city this morning than it is in miami where it's 82. still it's early, only going to get hotter. >> tell them about the humidity. >> man, it's here in the northeast we are going to see a little break. but for our friends in the south and the southeast, there is no relief in sight. we've got this big dome of high pressure, that's pumping in the heat and humidity from the gulf all the way into the northeast. however, there is a cooler less humid bubble of high pressure that's about to make its way into the northeast and the great lakes. but right now, from texas all the way to the carolinas, and virginia we've got people with heat advisories and excessive heat warnings temperatures that will feel like 110 in some of the warning areas. today 92 in new york city norfolk 94, 95 in wilmington. as you slide to the south and west, it's even worse. dallas, you'll probably have your first 100-degree day of the season. same in jackson, 98.
7:03 am
for our friends to the north, minneapolisp, that front moves through. you're at 82. 78 in chicago. 76 in cleveland. much cooler air, more of the same on wednesday. that cool air gets here in the northeast. look at this. by wednesday 87 in new york 88 in washington, d.c. buffalo, 77. but down to the south still hot, temperatures will stay well above normal. and along that front we're looking at pretty heavy showers and thunderstorms firing up as well. so we've got a lot going on and that heat's not going anywhere. >> look at that map stop our wining. >> there is a new twist. >> in the investigation into the deadly shooting ram pain in tennessee. following leads the fbi searched an apartment for clues that the gunman may have shared his plan with others. nbc's miguel almaguer is in chattanooga. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the fbi spent hours here focused on one apartment complex talking
7:04 am
to neighbors. we know the suspect spent time here, had friends in the area but what they know remains unclear. the fbi now focused on this chattanooga area apartment. a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation tells nbc news officials are looking into whether at least two acquaintances of the suspect knew of his intentions in the months prior to the attack. before mohammad youssuf abdulazeez opened fire on two military facilities killing five, he sometimes expressed anti-american feelings says a family spokesman. when he was vulnerable the gunman was drawn to extremist views. in his dark moments thought of jihad. his parents never thought he was a real threat though the spokesman says the 24-year-old was in a downward spiral, depressed, hooked on drugs and suicidal before he pulled the trigger. >> there are millions of people in america that suffer that never commit an act that he committed. >> reporter: the family
7:05 am
spokesman says the gunman's parents saw him tuesday arguing about his dui, the start of a three-day bender. he rented the mustang convertible he used in the shooting speeding through chattanooga with friends before the bloodshed. but many who knew him say there was no indication he harbored extreme beliefs. with the fbi processing his cell phone there remains no official lifrpg to any radical organization. a family spokesman says the parents knew their son was struggling but never thought he would be capable of this. the gunman was living in a rented room with two other men but he would spend weekends amend off time in this area we're told before the shooting he spent more and more time in this neighborhood. savannah. >> miguel almaguer thank you. shawn henry, former executive director of the fbi now
7:06 am
president of crowd price services. so now we're learning investigators are looking into whether friends had some knowledge of this beforehand. how serious would that knowledge have to be? how much would they have to know for the friends to potentially be subject to any criminal prosecution? >> there would be a couple of things. are these people co-conspirators, who were aware and were going to participate in overt acts or are these people friends who may have heard him say something, are they potential witnesses, can they provide additional information that will give direction and continue their leads. >> we're learning more getting this portrait of the gunman it's complex. on the one hand seemed to struggle with depression had suicidal thoughts couldn't keep a job. apparently had substance abuse problems. is this somebody who would be a ripe target for radicalization? >> i think that's absolutely right. these are the types of people that are susceptible, they are not closely aligned necessarily with family or in some cases start to pull away from family
7:07 am
they are struggling with personal issues looking for something to ground them to bring them back. this is one of the types of people, these types of situations isis wants to capitalize on. >> they have to be scouring his computers to see whether or not he had any communication with anyone overseas. we know he spent time in jordan with family maybe perhaps something happened there i guess they will ask. >> that to me is the critical piece of this investigation. that jordan component, if this is isis-inspired or directed they are looking at that. what did he do who did he speak with and what was the critical change when he came back caused him to lead up to this event. >> so many questions. thank you very much. thank you. donald trump we're talking about him again this morning because he finds himself atop the crowded field of republican presidential hopefuls. that's according to the newest poll. even as he courts controversy seemingly at every turn. is that a winning strategy?
7:08 am
nbc's peter alexander has more on that. good morning. >> reporter: controversial comments have led many of his republican rivals to say he is disqualified himself to be commander in chief. now iowa's paper is joining them writing that trump is not only unfit to hold office but unfit to stand on the same stage as his republican opponents. they are calling on him to terminate what it calls his ill-conceived campaign as trump is speaking out again. donald trump isn't apologizing to john mccain. on monday night he inched closer. >> i have respect for senator mccain, i used to like him a lot. i supported him and certainly if there was a misunderstanding i would totally take that back. but hopefully i said it correctly, and certainly shortly thereafter i said it correctly. >> reporter: that misunderstanding refers to these comments he made about mccain in iowa this past weekend. >> he's not a war hero. he's a war hero.
7:09 am
he is a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured. >> adding. >> he is a war hero balls he was captured. okay. and i believe -- perhaps he's a war hero. >> reporter: trump's opponents remain unimpressed. >> he should apologize. move on to the next thing. >> reporter: in an editorial the des moines register in iowa is calling on trump to, quote, pull the plug on his bloviating side show. the paper blasts trump as affectless blowhard who can generate headlines and polling numbers not by provoking thought but provoking outrage. in the vietnam war while mccain was prisoner in the hanoi hilton trump who graduated from a military high school was on the way to an ivy league degree avoiding the war with four student deif you arements later a high draft lottery number. politically trump who seriously flirted with a white house bid in 1999 has been all over the
7:10 am
map, even registering as a democrat in 2001 before changing party years later. some of his past statements more closely resemble democratic positions like on abortion. >> i'm really pro choice. >> reporter: now he says he is pro life and his support of health that are sick. >> we'll see how those positions sit with many of those early state republican voters. still, a new "washington post" poll shows trump leading the republican pack by a wide margin nationally. there are some signs his support, however, may be waning. that poll found a meaningful drop in support for trump the day after his comments about john mccain. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander on this. peter, thanks very much. while donald trump and the rest of the republican field will have a new face to contend with starting today. ohio governor john kasich has scheduled a special announcement at ohio state university. he is expected to become the 16th republican to enter the race. as for the democrats,

hillary clinton hosted her first facebook chat. as a presidential candidate on monday. it was followed by thousands with topics ranging from her plans to reform wall street to libya to business attire for women. the former secretary of state saying i never met a pantsuit i didn't love. clinton also weighed in on her republican rivals and the issue of immigration, saying donald trump, in particular, is getting a lot of attention for some hateful rhetoric. but jeb bush and marco rubio actually agree with him on denying a pathway to citizenship. of the thousands of questions she received, clinton answered 12, 4 of those came from reporters. also, we are learning a lot more about last month's brazen prison escape in new york that led to that massive manhunt for two convicted killers. and tamron's following this one for us this morning. tamron, good morning. >> good morning. the lone survivor, david sweat, is apparently giving officials a thorough account of that escape, detailing its planning and execution, even comparing it to the movie "the shawshank
7:12 am
redemption." >> reporter: according to "the new york times," david sweat told investigators from his hospital bed how he planned his escape in extraordinarily specific terms, portraying himself as the driving force. according to the report, sweat started devising a plan this winter after he was transferred to a cell next to matt. almost immediately he began cutting a hole in the back of his cell using a hacksaw blade. each night he would wait until after the 11:30 head count to crawl through the hole, shimmy down a series of pipes, going down several stories and roam the tunnels, looking for a way out. he would then return to his cell each morning before the 5:30 a.m. count. >> he was looking for a way that he could find a weak point, find a place where he would be able to get out. >> reporter: sweat reportedly
7:13 am
had a macgyver-like sense when heat from the steam pipes became unbearable while cutting through concrete wall, he rigged a fan from his cell, using electricity from the tunnel's light. >> he was creative, at least according to his account, in the way that he dealt with the obstacles that he faced. >> reporter: like so many others, sweat and his partner reportedly compared their efforts to the escape in "the shawshank redemption," joking that while it had taken andy dufresne 20 years. it would only take them ten. >> whether it was skill, whether it was determination, they were able to do something that many people weren't able to do before them. >> sweat who was already serving a life sentence was moved to a special housing unit last week where he's confined for 23 hours a day. the new york department of corrections and community supervision has filed formal disciplinary charges against him. i'm not sure if that matters because it's just on top of all of the other issues, but to your
7:14 am
point, savannah, you mentioned he's the lone survivor, so he can take credit. the other guy obviously was killed by authorities. and we know that prisoners often like to brag about their escapades. >> sure. >> apparently he had nothing to lose. spilling the beans. >> the more he talks, the worse it sounds for the guards and supervisors of that prison, many of whom have been sent to other places. >> tamron, thank you. natalie's here with an important meeting on a landmark deal. >> that's right. well, secretary of defense ash carter met with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem today to ease concerns over the iran nuclear deal. it comes a week after western powers and iran reached that historic agreement. netanyahu has strongly criticized the deal, calling it a mistake of historic proportions. carter is scheduled to visit jordan next to visit a base used in the war against isis. and this morning two dramatic videos of people trying to rescue children who were locked inside hot cars. the first is from the kansas city area. you can see employees of a shoe store trying to smash a car

window. there was a 2-year-old girl inside. and witnesses say she was drenched in sweat. it was 91 degrees outside, much hotter, though, in the car. eventually they rescued the girl, and they brought her inside the store. according to the manager, though, the couple who said the little girl was their niece, asked if insurance was going to pay for that window. they were then ticketed for child endangerment, but they could face more charges. and now to another scene. this one in philadelphia. this time it was police officers who were trying to smash their way into an suv. and there was a baby and a young girl locked inside that car in 90-degree temperatures. the mother accidentally locked her keys in the suv, and then she quickly dialed 911. the kids were rescued, and fortunately they are okay. well, the search is on for a pricey parrot stolen from a california pet store. take a look at this surveillance video. you see a man taking an african gray parrot off its perch.

"they don't magically lose the right to privacy just because some schmos on the internet decide they're on the wrong side of the moral track." >> so people kind of have this attitude of well it serves them right. but the reality is these people still had that expectation of privacy, and they should have been able to maintain that level of security that they expected. >> up until now, customers who wanted to completely delete all of their information on the website had to pay $19. the hackers claim that information was never truly scrubbed.

8:20 am
life. i got a chance to learn a little bit more about it from one of music's biggest names. >> reporter: at age 57, russell simmons is a hip-hop star, fashion mogul, devout yogi, and when it comes to food, vegan for nearly 17 years. an early convert as the diet trend was catching on. you grew up in queens. i grew up in queens. grew up eating meat. what was the switch? >> well, it started with my yoga practice. i became a vegan because one, compassion for the animals. you know, finally i just made the choice. >> reporter: the subject of simmons' upcoming book, no meat poultry, fish dairy, eggs or even things like gelatin and
8:21 am
honey. nothing that comes from an animal. experts say it has its health rewards. >> it is low in saturated fat. it's also high in fiber. that's a very heart-healthy diet. so for people who are looking to control their cholesterol and high blood pressure and certain cardiovascular risk factors, this could be the diet for you. >> reporter: talk to me about how it changed your outlook and your physical being. >> well, the first thing i did was lose 20 pounds. and i haven't put that back on. >> reporter: do you feel healthier? >> do i feel better than 15, 17 years ago? i think so, yeah. i think i'm in pretty good shape. >> reporter: other celebrities like ellen degeneres, gwyneth paltrow and carrie underwood have all reportedly embraced the vegan way. even mike tyson knocked the meat out of his diet. still there are caveats. >> certain vitamins such as b-12 are only found in animal sources so they need to be supplemented. >> reporter: but to prove a vegan diet could satisfy a carnivore like me, simmons had me meet him at one of his favorite new york city vegan spots, red bamboo. >> let's see what they're giving us here. what do we got? >> buffalo wings. >> buffalo wings.
8:22 am
>> jerk saten. >> i went to school with a guy named jerk saten. >> bamboo curry chicken. >> reporter: if i didn't know that this was vegan, i'd think i was eating chicken. and after some vegan cake and ice cream -- oh, my god. that's insane. wow! we were officially stuffed. >> all right. i'm done. there are fat vegans. >> reporter: but on the upside, there's your new book, "the fat vegan." >> if they could get bacon on a vegan diet, you'd be in. >> well, there's seaweed that tastes like bacon. >> joy is here. first of all, vegan versus vegetarian. >> vegan typically means avoiding meat, beef, pork, also chicken and fish. but a lot of people will allow eggs and dairy.
8:23 am
but when you go vegan, there's no animal foods allowed whatsoever. so that's all of the meat, plus no eggs, no dairy and even things like gelatin and honey. are off limits. it's like the pope of vegetarianism. >> we've got a sample day for a vegan. first, there's pros and cons of the diet. >> so there are a lot of pros. the first thing, you're eating a lot of plant-based foods so it's loaded in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, also low in saturated fat and cholesterol. vegans compared to meat eaters, vegans tend to weigh less. they have lower bmis. also it could help to lower your blood pressure and cholesterol and protect your heart and also fabulous for the environment. >> any cons? >> just a few. i think the typical things. first is that you have to go out of your way to focus on getting adequate protein. otherwise you're eating heaps of starch. also because vitamin b-12 is found in animal foods, you need to probably take a supplement or work with a nutritionist. and also it looks like anything, it requires a lot of planning, and it can be difficult socially

8:25 am
you can get things like tofu teriyaki. yesterday on the show somebody made cauliflower steak. there's a lot of really delicious things. also you can stuff a spud. take a baked potato and you could put things like black beans and salsa, guacamole. wine is vegan. >> now you're talking. >> that's right. >> and for dessert, there's a lot of fun ways that you can sort of heighten regular fruit. so this is mango with coconut. and hey, a lot of dark chocolates are vegan because they don't have milk with them. >> i grilled pineapple last night. >> delicious. with a dash of balsamic vinegar. joy will be back with more on how you should decide if going vegan is right for you. tomorrow the inside scoop on the mediterranean and paleo diets. matt up to you. >> i have tara and ian here from "sharknado." tell us something. >> i'm having a baby.

and having some fun this summer. but before you go camping or jogging there are some potentially dangerous warning signs and symptoms that you should know about. >> here to fill us in is nbc medical contributor dr. natalie azar. >> good morning. >> we've been hearing about lyme disease. it's that time of year. it seems like there's an increase in cases as well. what should we be looking for? >> okay. so what the picture here shows is something that's called the bull's-eye rash of lyme disease, which is the classic. this is where the tick bite happens. it's red there. there's an area of palor or whiteness and this zone of redness around. super importantly is that up to a quarter of people who have lyme disease will not develop this telltale rash. we were talking earlier a doctor could easily diagnose lyme disease when they see this, you know, in an appropriate setting. you might have been exposed and have symptoms. if you don't have the rash but you have early symptoms of lyme that is fatigue, a flulike illness, malaise, swollen lymph node s and you live where there's a high risk, high-risk counties you need to get
9:35 am
yourself checked out. >> a lot of parents have gotten to the point -- we do this, too -- where your kids come in from playing all day, you do a head-to-toe check. >> head-to-toe check for ticks. the life cycle is the smallest. it's the one that we see most around this time can be tiny so you really have to look really, really carefully. >> let's move on to our next one. >> and treatable. >> very treatable with antibiotics, absolutely. >> dehydration. how do we handle it? >> here's what's interesting. we've heard a lot about deaths recently i believe in arizona from people who should be experienced to be out in the elements and stuff like that. but important to remember that people, especially who are most at risk vigorous exercise without rehydrating. the very old, the very young, people with chronic illnesses. signs to look for. and i have to say that if you're feeling thirsty, it's not too late but that's a sign of dehydration already. so you want to stay well hydrated during and before and after these vigorous activities. but other signs would be a dark-colored urine. if your urine is very light, light yellow, it suggests that you're well hydrated.
9:36 am
so increased thirst, decreased urine output dry skin headache. even constipation, dizziness, light-headedness and obviously more severe, you need to go to an emergency room. the treatment is rehydration very logically. >> okay. asthma. >> yes. >> this time of year can be really hard to breathe, hard to sometimes distinguish, is it just the hot air, sticky? >> right. >> or do you have asthma? >> do you have asthma. the symptoms, what are classic symptoms of asthma would be a cough, shortness of breath, chest tightness and wheezing. you don't necessarily to have to asthma to have these symptoms. if you're allergic to something you have a lot of allergies you may have these symptoms. it might be counterintuitive to think of asthma being worse in the summer. we usually associate it with viral triggers like infections in the fall and winter. and we certainly see an uptick then. but things that can cause asthma, exacerbation in the summer would be humidity, things like that. always have something an asthma action plan. know your triggers. have an emergency treatment around. close contact with your doctor. make sure that you're always

10:04 am
it's saturday. we know this business better than some might, i certainly know about the music business because of -- you can never see each other. when you're touring or in a recording studio in a different city and you're texting each other and calling and meeting up at -- when they have awards shows, basically, and maybe getting away far two-week vacation sometime during the year -- >> not a lot of time. >> what marriage has a chance? it's just too hard. >> well when you talk about instant chemistry, you know when you meet someone, it's happened to you, you meet someone and suddenly you're like "oh, my gosh, what is this? is it lust? love? the long haul?" we remember when brad and angelina were on the set of "mr. and mrs. smith" when they saw those two they knew. >> there's some kind of steamy -- you knew it was
10:05 am
happening. >> and they were -- well, he was married she wasn't at the time. >> sometimes it happens when both people are already married, hoda. >> i want to thank you for the text you sent me which was not nice. >> well, i heard about it and i said i had to send hody a text. >> she sent a one-line text, i didn't know what had happened she wrote "definitely your fault." i don't know what she was talking about. i felt terrible, it was a horrible thing for a friend to send another friend. >> i have now called you the hody-wrecker.

been back on the cujo trail. you never know. >> he's sensing something. we wish both of them the best. hopefully they can have a sense of humor about it too someday. >> and i think they're both strong people. >> you don't get to where they have gotten if you're some wimp. so "the bachelorette" was on last night and i thought it would be one where she chooses between sean and nick. >> they're going to milk this until the udders are dry. >> this is where the men get up and talk about the things behind the scenes. you would have loved it. >> yeah. >> you could have popped the popcorn and enjoy. >> yeah. >> there was a part that got the most pickup it talked about the backlash kaitlin had been receiving regarding her behavior on the show. >> her sexual behavior. >> yeah. and she offered no apologies, but they shared some of the hate it feel tweets horrible tweets of one even included a death threat which was ridiculous. we can't read the tweet because
10:07 am
some of them are vicious. but this is her reaction. >> i mean, that was a mother who said that to me. so it just -- to read those words, i feel like my whole life -- i just try to get along with people. i try to see the best in people and when i'm reading that i just don't understand how someone who is a mother figure can go out of their way to write that for the world to see, for me to see and she's talking about how i'm teaching bad behavior, yet she's speaking like that to somebody. like -- >> well, i'll tell you this i will take you as a role model for my kids over anybody who would be a cyber bully. [ applause ] and spew that kind of hate. >> yeah i think when you talk about -- the traffic text. >> it was horrible. so next week she ice going to pick between nick and bisean. >> is it over? >> well, let's just decide right now.
10:08 am
you and i are going to decide right now. who is she going to pick? it's very important. this is a big decision. >> you pick one and i'll pick the other. >> okay. >> she's got a thing, you say, for nick all along even though they've -- >> so you're picking nick. you like nick. that's fine [ laughter ] so you've chosen nick, you like his character. >> i don't know any of them. >> obvi. >> i'll go with nick. >> i'm going pick sean. >> is he nice? >> i think so but you're upset it's not ben h. what does the h. stand for, anyway?

10:10 am
[ laughter ] >> oh, my gosh darla. >> i'm sorry, she's very trump-like. isn't she? just saying what she means and not apologizing. >> oh, my gosh, darla. >> you know what? i think we've all been darla on occasion, we've just had it. >> we've had our moments. >> she said she tried to get the parents to quiet the child, they didn't, other people were saying be quiet to the child. >> and the parents say that maybe they didn't get their food for a long time and that's why 24 t child is screaming and then they say they got the food and weren't feeding the child. there's a lot going on but darla just -- >> the parents -- i think serve wrong here, don't you? i want to be sort of solomonic about this. the parents should have been realized that's a long time for a child to be screaming. scoop the child up and go outside or leave. you know when you have a child until they're at the age of reason that you can't reason with them.
