alexander, kristen welker, and dylan dreyer. welcome to "today." thanks for joining us this saturday morning. great to be in new york alongside vicki nguyen. good to see you, she's in for kristen welker who is away on maternity leave. we are upstairs while we get a face lift. >> good to be with you. bay area connection. >> no doubt. we have a lot of news to get to. we started hurricane warnings posted on the northeast coast and parts of new england. henri is expected sometime tomorrow with millions in the storm's path. we begin with kathy park in rhode island, they're preparing for the brunt of henri. good morning. >> reporter: peter, good morning to you. henri is showing no signs of
5:33 am
weakening, could be the strongest storm to strike the new england area in more than 30 years. right now, we're not feeling the impacts of the storm just yet. folks here are enjoying the morning. this time tomorrow, conditions could be deteriorating quickly. this morning, tropical storm henri intensifying on its path toward new england, threatening coastal communities from new jersey to massachusetts, with damaging winds, heavy rain, and dangerous storm surge. the slow moving storm could lead to serious flooding. the governor of massachusetts warning up to 300,000 homes could lose power. >> we would really like everybody to be off the roads at the height of the storm which will probably last all day sunday and through until the early part of monday. >> reporter: the latest models show henri strengthening to a hurricane before landfall. this hasn't happened in more than 30 years when hurricane bob

5:35 am
looking at storm surge on the of five feet. >> busy morning for you, dylan. what's the latest of henri's path? >> the storm has taken a westward shift. look at this fascinating satellite imagery with all of the lightning strikes imposed into it. you can see the intensity of the storm. the storm itself will likely intensify as we go through the day today. it is moving into warm waters of the gulf stream. because of that westward track, look where hurricane warnings are. central and eastern long island, parts of connecticut. elsewhere in orange, we have tropical storm warnings. we're still watching the rhode island areas. the storm itself, 70 miles per hour winds. moving north, northeast, into warmer water, it will likely strengthen to a category one hurricane. then going into tomorrow, around
5:36 am
2:00, 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., you could see landfall. perhaps on long island. somewhere in this area. then it will weaken into a tropical storm. then it will unfortunately slow down and produce a lot of potential for flooding rain across most of southern new england and make its way further north. let's talk about rain first. this is an issue. july was one of the wettest months for several areas of the northeast. add to that 5 to 10 inches of rain. we could see considerable flash flooding as an issue across the northeast. as for coastal areas, three to five foot storm surge includes parts of long island, parts of southeastern massachusetts. that would be the water pushed on shore. good news, with earlier arrival of the storm, it is now going to occur in low tide, we're not going to see as much storm surge as we would have seen otherwise. winds will be a big issue. they'll be tropical storm force, hurricane force winds, up to 50 to 80 miles per hour. combine that with wet ground,
5:37 am
leaves on trees, that leads to power outages. you could see widespread power outages across the northeast. >> thank you. we'll get back to you for the forecast for the rest of the country in a few minutes. president biden will be briefed this morning on the latest evacuation efforts out of afghanistan where overnight hundreds of afghan were taken to an air base in germany. friday, the president reiterated his pledge to get all americans that want to leave out of the country. we have two reports. monica alba is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president biden descended the decision to withdraw troops, despite scenes of desperation at the kabul airport, repeating the buck stops with him, making a promise to those trying to escape a dangerous situation in afghanistan. president biden vowing to evacuate all u.s. citizens from kabul. >> let me be clear. anyone that wants to come home, we will get you home. >> reporter: extending that to
5:38 am
afghan allies who helped their mission the last 20 years. >> the united states stands by its commitment that we made to these people. >> reporter: the biden administration still not able to put a number on how many americans are trying to get out, announcing 13,000 people have been airlifted the past week with 6,000 in the last 24 hours alone. despite a pause in operations friday, a senior official negotiated with third party countries to temporarily transferee evacuees. >> this is one of the largest, most difficult air lifts in history. >> reporter: the president acknowledging pain and suffering of those trying to flee. >> the past week has been heartbreaking. we have seen gut wrenching images of panicked people, acting out of sheer desperation. >> reporter: like the family of this infant in need of medical care, seen being pulled over razor wire over an airport wall. the baby later reunited with his father according to the pentagon. >> this was a humane act of compassion by marines. >> reporter: the president's
5:39 am
critics call for more troops to be sent to the country to help people struggling to get to military flights. >> only way in hell we're going to get our people out is for the president of the united states to tell the military use the full force and might of the u.s. military to get every american out and all those who fought along our side. unless the president gives that order, we're going to leave thousands of people behind. >> reporter: as for chaos at the airport, new images f children, many of whom had to wait hours on hot tarmac with american troops hoping for news on flights to safety. peter? vicky? >> monica alba at the white house this morning. thank you very much. >> hard to see those images. there are still tens of thousands of people waiting to get out of afghanistan, but the taliban tightening their grip on the country. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engle made his way to doha, qatar, grateful refugees are arriving at all hours there. richard, what are you seeing?
5:40 am
>> reporter: well, it is not just a matter of throwing resources at this problem. the base in kabul, we came from that base, is somewhat overwhelmed. they're operating like an island and are surrounded by hostile territory. putting in more troops there helps secure the base. eventually those troops have to be pulled out. the problem is really one of coordination. if you imagine most of the country except for this base, nearly all of the country is controlled by the taliban. you have people in afghanistan who want to leave. they are spread ought all over the country. some have documents, some of them don't have documents. they're trying to figure out how to get to the airport. they're trying to figure out how to get to the airport with their families. again, vehicles are an issue. once they get there, they're just closing the vehicles, dropping the keys and getting on. sometimes they're waiting for
5:41 am
-- they're walking the last few hundred yards. then they have to push through taliban check points, some of which are aggressive around the airport. try and get the attention of american troops at the gate, waving their passports, waving other documents. if they're lucky, they're let on the base. then the processing begins. after that, it is a major question of where to put them because not all the people have documents. they're being let on, being processed. there's some limited screening going on at the airport itself, but there are thousands of people there. a lot of people arriving don't speak english, most of them do not. it's not just translators. there are families, other people brought on. they're putting them on flights, in some cases not having a full idea of who they are. and lots of countries don't know what to do with them. initially, many of them were coming here to doha because this is a major centcom base.
5:42 am
doha was being overwhelmed. now it seems they're being diverted to ramstein air base in germany. seems that probably they're going to have to expand this to other locations, and those are just holding areas. then you have to figure out final third country destinations. this is an enormous -- don't want to call it a will gist cal problem. it is much more than that, there's the security problem in kabul, getting there, processing them, getting them out, and once they're in the third country holding areas, you have to then figure out who it actually is who got on these planes and where they're ultimately going to end up. >> richard, for the first time, a little change in strategy yesterday. we witnessed an american, chinooks picking up 170 americans outside the kabul airport, bringing them back. whether they're able to expand operations like that in the days ahead we will be watching. richard engle, thanks so much. we turn to the coronavirus crisis.
