the billionaire prepares for an announcement and much more on this busy tuesday. "first look" starts right now. good morning everyone. i'm angie. right now, bracing for dangerous weather, tropical storm bill is closing in on the gulf. the storm packing 50-mile-per-hour winds and in the threat zone oklahoma arkansas louisiana and still-soaked texas. in houston, the rush to get ready yesterday as the city is put on high alert. flood warnings are up and in the forecast possibly 12 inches of rain. southern houston and galveston canceling classes. bill karins has the latest on the storm's track. >> dangerous storm. only three weeks ago, we had the horrible and deadly flooding in texas and we have a situation where we could easily get another 6 to 12 inches on this soaked soil of east texas. and that's the concern. we're not concerned with the storm surge. could be around 2 to 3 feet at
landfall. winds could be maybe 50 or 60-mile-per-hour gusts. but it's this bulk of rain that has to come up into texas over the next couple of days and that is where the problem will be. across the coast, up towards dallas by about 1:00 p.m. notice the winds die down to just a remnant low by this point and it tracks back to the ohio valley. this is probably the most soaked areas of our country and that's the exact path that this storm is going to take. how much rainfall is possible with this? latest computer estimates are 8 to 10 inches at the high end. but, again, we don't know yet quite where the training is going to be. but the potential is for 4 to 8 widespread, up towards to 8 to 10. that's why we have flood watches that go from core pus christy to springfield and now the st. louis areas. and our long range computers, take the heavy rains, back up through the ohio valley. we had horrible thunderstorms
last night, angie, with flash flooding problems with pennsylvania to illinois. they're going to get this storm eventually, too, so we have a lot of flooding to deal with in the week ahead. >> and that rainfall today, around noon to 1:00 p.m. >> thank you. it's a word you don't throw around lightly, but this morning in chicago, they're rightfully shouting it with pride. dynasty. game six of the stanley cup finals blackhawks were all over the lightning. hard hit a goal in second period and another to seal it in the third. and then this. >> call for another block. five to go. for the third time in six years, the black hawk res stanley cup champions! >> you heard nbc's doc emrick. three stanley cup wins in six years. the last time they won it on home ice back in 1938. after that one, the oldest traditions in sports.
the series ending handshakes. the blackhawks had to wait around on the ice for lord stanley's cup to arrive on the stadium reportedly because of the bad weather and traffic issues. so when that 122-year-old relic arrived, the grown men kissed that trophy. out in the chicago streets, massive celebrations and, you bet, more than a few of those people out there probably calling in sick this morning. and the cover of the "chicago tribune," very simple. hat trick. congratulations to everyone out in chicago. a huge triumph for the u.s. military. al qaeda now saying that its second in command, nasser al wahishi is dead. killed by an air strike in yemen. he was a target on friday. he is the head of the al qaeda in the arain yajan peninsula. meanwhile, there are still lingering doubts this morning
that another target was, in fact, killed. this one in libya. initial reports indicate nasser al baktar was taken identity but still no official corn firm confirmation yet. donald trump, will he or won't he? he could become the 12th person to announce plans for the white house. trump would follow on the heels of jeb bush who yesterday became the 11th person to declare a run for the presidency. on the flip side hillary clinton has been busy on the campaign trail. while in new hampshire yesterday she discussed early childhood education and once again avoided taking a position on president obama's trade deal. tracie potts reports from washington. >> reporter: the donald on twitter calling today a really big day for america after a rally in new york today, trump's schedule has him hitting iowa

chance that they had. >> and that was nbc's tracie potts reporting. this morning new information on those vicious slashing attacks in north carolina that took the left arms of two young people. area beaches remain open today while authorities patrol the shore line. the family of the first victim a 12-year-old girl is asking that we not report her name or her condition right now. but we're hearing from the paramedic who just happened to be in the water when the girl was attacked. >> when i got to her and realized how bad the injuries were my -- i guess i just kind of went into work mode. we got some strings off of a boogie board and off of a tent and i made some makeshift attorney kits until we could get the proper equipment on scene. she was so strong did a wonderful job and her parents were amazing, keeping her calm. >> and this is the scene of a second attack a little more than an hour later. that 16-year-old boy has been upgraded to good condition. rachel dolezal, the civil
rights activist who has been accused of misrepresenting herself a as black has announced she's stepping down from president of the spokane naacp. she repeatedly identified herself as black until her own parents spoke to reporters saying her racial makeup is in fact overwhelmingly white. dolezal will share her story in an exclusive one-on-one interview with melissa harris perry today on msnbc. it's day 11 of that massive manhunt for those two escaped murderers in new york state. while law enforcement has not found them yet, we are starting to get more information on what may have happened. prison worker joyce mitchell accused of helping them on the inside appeared in court yesterday. a law enforcement source tells nbc news she may have wanted the deadly duo to kill her husband, also a prison employee. and multiple sources familiar with the investigation tell nbc mitchell was investigated for a
sexual relationship with escapee david sweet.at. then it was the owner one who charmed her. and the district attorney saying there may be more people involved in that escape. let's get down to business with cnbc's landon dowdy. great to see you. >> great to see you, too. gap is going to close about a quarter of its namesake stores. the retailer will shed 175 locations in north america, most of them this year. it's unclear how many job cuts will result on the move. gap is also eliminating 250 jobs at its corporate office. goldman sachs is thinking small. the investment bank plans to start offering consumer loans online as soon as next year. the loans of a few thousand dollars would be offered through a website or app with no cost for branches. goldman could lend the money at lower interest rates. and honda is adding another 1.4 million cars to its massive recall of vehicles with the faulty takata air bags.
