grab your umbrella. the weather is the top story. storm system impacting tens of thousands. blinding winds across the midwest to damaging tornadoes in the south. nbc's jacob ras cone is in collinsville, mississippi, this morning. jacob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. these were monster tornadoes leaving behind incredible damage in their wake. this was the first baptist church in collinsville, mississippi, torn right apart. the roof blown right off. all while the pastor and his family were still inside. face to face with a monster tornado. storm chasers running for their lives. >> go, go, go, go, go. >> reporter: the twister hopscotching through a neighborhood and college campus in rural alabama while in collinsville, mississippi, a direct hit. a neighborhood decimated. two dozen homes damaged or destroyed. the first baptist church next door ripped in half.
>> you can see the complete devastation of our church. it's unbelievable. >> reporter: while pastor wayne ricks and his family were still inside. >> my wife and i and my son came over to the church because we have cinder block walls and found a room and got under the desk and within seconds stuff started falling everywhere. >> reporter: more than a dozen tornadoes reported in the south. part of a massive winter storm that also pum meted the midwest with heavy snow and high winds. millions of americans in the storm's path. some losing everything but the clothes on their backs. others nearly losing it all. later today national weather service forecasters will be out to survey the damage as will those who live in the heavily damaged neighborhood behind the church. and moments ago i walked through this rubble with the pastor and his family. they showed me the desk under which they were hiding for the
duration of the storm. they said they played, god save us, and they say that he did. matt, savannah. >> jacob rascon, thank you very much. >> we'll talk to al about those storms in a couple of minutes. let's turn to the presidential race. the candidates are setting their sights on the next prize in the campaign, new hampshire. in a moment we'll talk to donald trump and bernie sanders, the front-runners in the granite state, but let's first get the latest on both races. beginning with nbc's kristen welker. she's covering the race between sanders and clinton. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. bernie sanders has a double digit lead over hillary clinton here in new hampshire, but she won this state back in 2008 so she's trying to convince voters, including at this campaign event here in derry later today not to count her out. the fight for new hampshire now in high gear. both democratic candidates campaigning late into the night. >> in iowa we took on the most powerful political organization
in the country. >> i hope you will choose with both your heart and your mind. >> reporter: it comes on the heels of a hard fought battle in iowa. clinton edging sanders by a hair. on tuesday she claimed victory. >> and i am so thrilled that i'm coming to new hampshire after winning iowa! >> reporter: clinton increasingly trying to tap into the progressive ideals propelling sanders surge. >> i am a progressive who likes to get things done. i'm actually a progressive who likes to make progress, funny thing. >> reporter: but sanders is resonating with young voters in a way clinton isn't. he beat her 84 to 14% with that group in iowa. >> reporter: does it concern you when you realize she's not connecting with young voters? >> i think it will come around the more that the young vote listens to hillary clinton, i think they'll start too realize that she is going to be the candidate that can get things done for them. >> reporter: in sanders some democrats are seeing flashbacks
to barack obama's appeal in 2008. former president bill clinton is dismissing that. >> barack obama is not bernie sanders. >> reporter: but sanders has energized an army of supporters. in new hampshire, his backyard, he's up by double digits. his promise of taking on the establishment striking a cord with ipd be pen dents who are key here. sanders arguing he's the only real progressive in the race and flexing his muscles. >> we began the political revolution not just in iowa, not just in new hampshire but all over this country. >> reporter: sanders campaign officials tell me this morning they raised $3 million in the 24 hours after iowa, the most single haul in one day for that campaign. secretary clinton campaigns here in new hampshire today but her husband, former president bill clinton, will be campaigning in south carolina, the state that votes after new hampshire and that's where she has a sizeable lead. matt, savannah. >> kristen welker, thank you
very much. senator bernie sanders is with us from his home state of vermt. senator, good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. >> the results in iowa were as close as they could be. iowa officials have made it official. they say hillary clinton is the winner. do you accept that? >> sure. she ends up getting about 22 delegates, we get about 20 delegates. we started that campaign about 40 or 50 points down. we ended up losing it by .2 of 1%. although to tell you the truth it's not 100% sure we didn't win it it's so dpli dated. we feel fantastic. we came a long way in iowa. now we're in new hampshire. we have a lot of momentum. >> real quickly, would you contest those results? >> we're looking at it right now. but the important point is that at the end of the day we came from nowhere to really startled the entire world.
we took on the most powerful political organization in the united states of america and, you know, nearly won that race. >> let's pick up on that, senator sanders. you raised $20 million in january. your campaign says you raised $3 million in the last 36 hours. so you move into new hampshire with a big lead in the polls as the candidate from the neighboring state and with more money in the bank than the head of what you called the biggest political organization in this country. >> no, no, no, into. matt, matt, that's not correct. hillary clinton has a super pac. >> i understand that. in terms of the campaign's direct financing. >> that doesn't matter. you have a super pac which has $25 million for secretary clinton, 15 million coming from wall street. our campaign contributions are $27 apiece coming from 3.5 million individual contributions. also, when we go into new
hampshire, let's not forget, hillary clinton won new hampshire in 2008. she has a very strong organization. her husband ran two campaigns there. >> i understand that, senator, but given what the circumstances are right now, would anything less than a resounding victory in new hampshire be disappointing for you? >> matt, that's just media talk, you know? every state you go to, that's what the media says. what happens in iowa? what happens in new hampshire? it's very important for us. we want to win it. then we're going to nevada. then we're going to south carolina, then we're going to wisconsin. every state is important. we're in this race to represent working people whose standard of living in many senses has gone down, in a nation which has massive income and wealth inequality and a corrupt campaign finance system. we're going all the way to the convention. we have the momentum. i think people are tired of establishment politics and establishment economics. >> senator, let's talk about this issue of electability. it's something that hillary clinton raises a lot on the trail. let me put it to you a different
way in terms of her electability. on the issue of her e-mails you've said you're sick of hearing about them. you said it is a serious issue but there's a process and set that aside. let me ask you this instead. should democratic voters making a decision between hillary clinton and bernie sanders factor that in? should they consider the fact that this is an issue she faces for better or worse over which she has no control. does it affect her electability? >> look, savannah, i think all issues affect electability and what i will tell you is two things. number one, if you look at the match-up polls that have taken place recently, bernie sanders against republican candidates, we are doing very, very well. we beat mr. trump by a whole lot, a lot more than hillary clinton. second of all, democrats win when voter turnout is high. republicans win when voter turnout is low. i think our campaign has the energy to rally working people,
middle class people, young people. high voter turnout, we win the general election. all factors, every issue is an issue of consideration for voters. >> a lot to watch over the coming days. senator sanders, we appreciate your time this morning. thanks very much. >> thank you. we move now to the republicans, donald trump looking to rebound in new hampshire after a second place finish in iowa laying some of the blame on his decision to skip last week's debate. we're going to talk to mr. trump live straight ahead. first, let's go to nbc's peter alexander. he has more on the republican race. peter, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. of course he is all about winning. donald trump is trying to get back to it here in new hampshire. he's now downplaying his defeat in iowa. trump's going to rely on this state's lessee -- le less evangelical race. he told reporters, he will fix iowa's mistake. >> reporter: here in the live free or die state donald trump's campaign is very much alive.
>> there were 17 people when we started, now you have 11. i come in second, i'm not humiliated. >> reporter: trump mocking reports that iowa made him a loser and marco rubio who finished third a winner. >> winner of the night, marco rubio. trump, humiliated. >> reporter: but also acknowledging his absence at the fox news debate last week may have affected the outcome. >> i think it could have been the debate. i think some people were disappointed that i didn't go in the debate. >> reporter: overnight trump quickly returned to his familiar form and a familiar target, ted cruz. >> what kind of people do we have running for office? no, it's honestly really, really dishonest, and i think i know why. you know why? because he was born in canada. he gets the nomination, they're going to sue his [ bleep ] off. >> reporter: fresh off his win, cruz is ooilg new hampshire and more conservative south carolina, its primary two weeks away.
>> last night we heard a howell coming from the potomac. >> reporter: meanwhile, a trio of governors all staking their claims here are setting their sights on each other and on marco rubio. kris christie with nbc's kelly o'donnell. >> he kind of reminds me of the boy in the bubble. you know, he never answers questions. he is always very controlled. the boy in the bubble has to get out of the bubble if you want to be president of the united states. >> reporter: rubio's rebuttal with gabe gutierrez. >> i think it's been a tough couple of days and they're not doing well. some people react badly to adversity. >> reporter: the state's wild card, john kasich rising to second place in many polls, now vying for a breakout moment. >> my tone is different. it's a tone of inclusiveness. it's a tone of helping people to get up. >> reporter: the bottom line is you're not going negative against your opponents because you think that's not the right tone for the party? >> reporte . >> well, it's not just not the right tone for the party, it's not the right tone for me. >> reporter: senator rand paul has suspended his campaign we've learned this morning.
he's dropping out of the race after a fifth place finish in iowa. in the state he's polling roughly 2 or 3%. aids tell us paul has no plans to make any endorsement before the vote in this state. coming up next. >> thanks so much. donald trump is on the phone with us now. mr. trump, good morning. >> good morning. >> i have to say, savannah and i were talking. we had the chance to interview you when we were in iowa on monday morning and we were both a little surprised at how under stated and subdued you sounded on the air that morning. had members of your team given you a hint of what might be to come that evening at that point? >> no. i'm just trying to be a little bit more under stated. some people like that, some people don't, actually, and, no, i don't think so. not at all. i mean, i think, you know, when it comes to iowa, i was not supposed to even go there. a lot of people thought i wouldn't do well in iowa and i made a decision to go because i know some of the people, they're great people. and i came in second. and, you know, which is a good finish. i mean, you have 11 people and
you started off with 17. i came in second. >> what do you think happened? do you think it was the organization? >> i don't know. i don't know. i didn't lose by much and i got more votes. other than ted, i got more votes than anybody in the history of the iowa caucus, republicans, and, you know, i got a very lot of votes. came in a solid second and the person that came in third, marco, a good guy, but marco came in third and they made it sound like he had one of the great victories of all time. they were saying what a great victory and i came in second and nobody said it was a victory. so it was sort of strange. >> yeah, you do bristle at the fact that people were saying this was devastating to you. i would agree with that. i was reading a lot online yesterday, mr. trump, and the gist of it seemed to be that now we're going to find out what donald trump is made of. does he have the guts? does he have the heart to fight this long fight? how would you answer that question? >> well, i've been winning all my life, matt. that's what i've done. we'll see what happens. i'm doing very well in new hampshire. you know, that was supposed to be my first stop really, and i
think i'm -- you know, i'm very happy i did the whole thing in iowa because i came in second. look, i beat a lot of senators, a lot of governors. they do it professionally. i've never done this before. i'm not a professional politician and i come in second and they don't. it was such a big story i came in second. i don't know why. i was actually semi satisfied with it. i guess one poll came out saying i might win it by 4 or 5 points and, you know, that didn't happen. i think caucuses are hard to poll by the way. >> i was going to bring that up because you loved the polls. it's a big feature of your stump speech, and a lot of polls, not just the "des moines register" but a lot of those polls had you winning. have you lost faith in the polls at all? >> i think when you get to polling a caucus, it's very tough. it's much more complex. it's harder to poll a caucus. no, i'm a believer in polls but i think when it comes to a complex caucus like that, i think it's probably hard to poll. >> donald trump will be speaking to you again, i'm sure.
thank you. >> the more under stated suck dued donald trump. mr. trump, thank you for your time. >> thank you very much. there are new fears over zika this morning. health officials in dallas reporting a person there has become infected with the virus through sexual contact. >> this is a first here in the u.s. amid the outbreak that is now being called a global health emergency. dr. natalie azar is a contributor. when i read this it jumped off the page. the notion that it could be sexually transmitted. is that for certain? what does that mean for the spread of the virus? >> they are fairly certain that is the case. they haven't told us the sex of the people yet. they haven't fully confirmed, let's say, that there wasn't another mosquito but, listen, it was the contact of a person who had frafld venezuela who contracted the zika virus and without any evidence of a mosquito bite. >> what worries me about that is
you told us in the past that many of the people who have the virus are asymptomatic. >> zble how do you go about protecting yourself during sexual contact. obviously condoms, one, but if you don't know the other person or you have the rye russ? >> right. that's where we are right now. the cdc's dr. frieden yesterday made it very, very clear that their charge in the upcoming days is to -- is to give the guidance now to the american people about what they should be doing in particular sexually active partners of women who may be either pregnant or trying to become pregnant. i think it's important to note that thiis not surprising. it's certainly unwelcome news but this is not the first documented case of sexual transmission. we had a case in 2008. we also had evidence that virus can be found in semen and in urine. i think importantly to reiterate, the main mode of transmission is still thought to be mosquito bites. but this does raise a new concern for people, and i will also point out that in england they already have a protocol in place that if you have a
documented infection, the man is to wear a condom for six months. if there's exposure without documented infection, wearing condoms for a month is currently their guideline. so, again, the next -- the charge of the cdc coming up is to get as much information about how long the virus can be seen or excreted in sexual secretions and inform their guidance based upon that knowledge. >> moving story. dr. azar, thank you. let's swing in this direction. mr. roker is here to talk about the big storms. >> that's right. we are at the northern part of it. we already saw what the southern part did. northern part, a lot of snow. looking from minnesota to michigan. we had anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow and there's still some left over as that system pulls up and away into canada. but in the meantime, we're watching this now and look at the showers and thunderstorms. we've got some heavier thunderstorms down to the south. it's already going to be making its way into the new york city area in the next several hours. look for major flight delays

need an emotional support pet, but too often, passengers are abusing the system. it's out of control. >> often, it's about the money. one way to travel with a pet on some airlines can be up to $600. if that animal is designated as an emotional support animal, it gets to come with you for free. >> reporter: so how easy is it? there are plenty of websites offering esa certifications. all you have to do is fill out a questionnaire. >> what type of animal do you have? dog. >> reporter: i go online and do it. >> how often have you been sleeping less than usual? often. i work on a morning show. >> a few clicks later. >> book. jeffrey, you are a good candidate for an emotional support animal. great. >> reporter: for $150, i get it. then they e-mail me this official letter from a real mental health professional. i never met with her. i never even spoke to her. >> come on. >> reporter: before you know it, i'm flying with rory. >> i'm boarding the flight and
they didn't ask to see the letter. no problems. no questions asked. >> reporter: and because rory is an emotional support animal, she can ride in my lap. no crate required. >> stay on my seat, rory. >> reporter: in fact, we take two flights. >> we're going up. >> reporter: the airline never asks a thing. >> so i just flew with a dog. we're going to ramp this up. this is my producer lindsey. you are certifying a different animal. what kind? >> i certified an emotional support pig. >> emotional support pig. >> did you have to meet anybody? >> no. >> same with a dog? >> exactly. >> you're going to fly with a pig. >> sure thing. >> reporter: that's spencer, a 3 month old potbelly pig. we borrowed him from a pig farm. remember, he's now an emotional support animal. at security, the agent asks for proof. >> thank you. >> reporter: no problem.
remember, we have that secret weapon, the letter. >> we're boarding. >> reporter: on board, spencer gets to sit on her lap, too. >> pig on a plane. >> reporter: this pig flies round trip. on the second leg, agents ask lindsey for the letter at the gate. spencer gets right on again. >> people are definitely abusing the system. we see it every day. >> reporter: disability experts say our experiments showing how out of control it's become. >> there are people watching this right now who do this. saying, who am i hurting? >> you're passing yourself off as a person with disability, and it can be consequences for those who need the animals. >> reporter: until there's a crackdown, this could be sitting next to you on your next flight. >> the pig is cute though. by the way, delta told us its policies are aligned with federal regulations and often review them. reserving the right to evaluate each case. experts say the best way to get this under control is develop a standardized certification
system where owners have to meet with the doctors to prove they need it. there's also the issue of safety here. emotional support animals are not required to have any formal training, like wrangler, for example. that's why i'm in the orange room. wrangler is being trained as a service animal. there is a difference between service animals and emotional support animals. wrangler is here getting trained. the emotional support animals, because they aren't trained, can be disruptive in flights. there was a case of a dog that went to the bathroom in the aisle. had to make an emergency landing. >> really? >> wow. >> thawhat about people with allergies? >> that's the other thing. they won't serve you peanuts on a plane if somebody has an allergy. if you have an allergy to the dog, you can't do anything about it because it's considered you have a disability when you get the letter. >> seems way out of hand. >> yeah. >> jeff, thank you very much. coming up on pop start, why you're about to see a whole lot of lady gaga. plus, carson is back.

audience. in this incredibly beautiful theater, the golden theater. it's such a great, intimate space. i've visited it and i can't wait to see what will come of it. >> it's a heavy topic. i mean, this is about women in the middle of the liberian civil war. tell me about your role and why you think this is an important story to tell. >> so this is an incredible story about these five women and how they deal with wartime. i play the girl who is the latest inclusion into a rebel commander's group, if you will. she's the youngest. she's 15 and just joined this compound. it's about how she deals with this new life of being at war, of being in captivity. it's intense. it's really funny. it's full of suspense, and it's very moving. it's exhausting to do every day, but it's such a joy.
>> all female cast. >> all female cast. >> female playwrite. wonderful, you have that. there's also so much talk about the oscars and the controversy there. shorthanded as oscars so white. what do you think as somebody who won an oscar and has done well in the industry. what do you feel about what people are saying about this year's oscars? >> i think it is a symptom of something else. i think what we are asking for is really for more stories to be told, for inclusion in the stories that are told. i think that, you know, it's good for all of us, when we hear a diverse number of stories and are able to experience more diversity. it's more reflective of the world we live in. that's what we ultimately want, is for a diversity of stories to be told. >> on the one hand, you've done well by hollywood standards, any standards, but is it something you can relate to? are there roles you wish would
come your way that you haven't gotten to see? >> i feel really grateful to be in the position that i find myself, where i can use the little weight i have to get stories that i feel are untold or yet to be told made and done. for example, with "eclip s"ecli this is something i brought to the table because it moved me in a way where i wanted to perform it and share it with people. i feel that's the role i can play. >> finally, i have to ask you about "star wars." are you a "star wars" nerd like the rest of us? were you so excited to be in it? >> now i am. >> now you're officially -- >> i'm a bona fide nerd. i go around with a stormtrooper and all that. >> thank you so much. always good to catch up with you.

it erases 99% of your most stubborn makeup with one towelette. need any more proof than that? neutrogena. story... ==topvo== a good wednesday morning at t 9:26. i'm sam brock. fears confirmed at santa clara university. there is a potential meningitis outbreak. there are two students with confirmed cases. the santa clara county public health department is working to vaccinate all students who might have had close contact with those infected. free vaccinations are going to be offered tomorrow and friday and meningitis can be passed along through body fluids or having close and lengthy contact with someone infected. a chp officer is recovering after being stabbed repeatedly
in san francisco. the officer is a seven-year veteran of the chp. he suffered a slashed trachea. a short time later san francisco police arrested a 44-year-old man that officers say possessed a large kitchen knife. and firefighters are still on scene and still mopping up at a strip mall fire in union city. it started after 6:00 a.m. west of interstate 880. nobody was injured and that fire is out now but there have been some road closures in the surrounding area. on that note we'll look at your traffic patterns, also what's going on on the weather front right after this. weather toss to traffic
good morning. we have some sunshine now, but as these clouds approach we will start to see rain moving in during the evening commute and it is chilly. 41 degrees in living room. san francisco and oakland at 46 degrees. and this system will start to spread some rain into the north bay later on this evening and
most likely impacting the evening commute, so as you head out the door this morning, make sure you have the umbrella. let's check in now with mike to see what's happening in the east bay. >> just off of that berkeley curve heading away from the bay bridge, we had a crash blocking the lanes. they are just about done clearing the vehicles there is it's a slower drive getting away from the bridge. let's look at your map and show you both incidents. eastbound 80 around ashby avenue, we have that crash blocking your two right lanes still as they clean up. westbound a little distraction but a lot better traffic over the last half hour. through oakland a crash at high street slowed things down. here is your south bay. >> sammy? >> thank you very much. we'll see you in 25 minutes.
taking a look at the taking a look at the headlines. more fallout from the recent e. coli neurovirus updates from chipotle. the company says its earnings dropped 36% in january on top of the almost 15% drop in the fourth quarter last year. chipotle said the scope of a criminal probe has widened beyond a single restaurant in california. it is now a nationwide investigation. amazon reportedly has big plans to open book stores around the u.s. "the wall street journal" is quoting the ceo of a large mall saying amazon's goal is to open 300 to 400 book stores. the company opened its first bookstore in november in seattle calling it a physical extension of amazon.com. one of the world's most popular messaging services has just hit a major milestone.

a trip with 146,000 likes. remember, todd.com facebook.com/today'stake. like us. now i like you, natalie. >> i like you too, al. thanks. now to the zika virus. as a growing crisis reaches american soil, just this week as you know the world health organization declared zika a global health emergency. now transmission of the zika virus has been confirmed in 29 countries and territories throughout south america, latin america, polynesia and the caribbean. now it is hirting even closer to home with the first zika virus case acquired through sexual transmission in dallas county. now if a zika carrying mosquito bites a pregnant mother the unborn child can be at great risk. right now about 4,000 babies in brazil alone with been born with microcephaly. this is a serious birth defect that affects the brain. experts say that for most people the zika virus presents with mild symptoms including fever, rash, joint pain and con
junktive viet tis or pink eye. some countries reporting a link between zika and guillain-barre syndrome. it's rare but it has yet to be confirmed by the c.d.c. the c.d.c. has put out a travel warning to avoid -- for pregnant women or women trying to become pregnant to avoid zika-affected areas. they say that women who have been infected should wait two years to become pregnant. let's send it over to willie and dr. natalie azar who have more. >> dr. azar has more. let's talk about the dallas case. a lot of people who weren't paying attention to zika perced up. cdc confirms it was a man or woman, we don't know. >> yes. >> it was transmitted from someone sexually who visited one of these countries who received zika. what does that tell you? >> it gives us more evidence about a suspicion that we've had. there are already documented cases in the literature, one in 2008 of a physician who was in
senegal who was infected with zika who came back to the u.s. and infected his wife and then more recently in 2013 with the very large outbreak in french polynesia, there was a tahitian man whose semen and urine tested positive for zika. the idea that it can be transmitted with blood transfusion or sexual contact is not necessarily new, ground breaking, or surprising, but as i stated earlier this morning, it's certainly unfortunate and unwelcome news because this now is a whole other set of protocols and precautions that we need to talk about in light of this outbreak. >> does this mean, dr. azar, someone coming back from one of these countries with zika should remain abstinent and if so for how long? >> right. we don't have a specific guidance on that yet but we intend on having that in the next coming days per dr. frieden of the c.d.c. i will state though that our friends/colleagues in england
have a protocol in place already, and that is that if a man who has a documented zika infection returns or wherever he or she is, he should use a condom for six months. if a person -- if a man has had potential exposure, exposure could just be being in an area where zika is being transmitted, the recommendation there is to wear a condom for four weeks, one month. at issue here is we don't know how long the virus, number one, is still detectible in sexual secretions and even if detectible, is it actually infectious. can it be transmitted? that right now is the next step for the cdc and researchers in brazil to try to get as much information as possible so that they can inform their guidance for us. >> quick bottom line before we go here. for people watching this at home, how concerned should people in the united states be about zika right now? >> i think the concern hasn't changed all that much in terms of location, first of all. you know, travel to areas where viral transmission is ongoing
and bringing back the infection to the united states is an issue. one thing we didn't get a chance to talk about so much today is the potential, you know, serious contribution to guillon-barre. this is a moving -- >> a moving target. >> yeah. >> there's a lot more questions to be answered. dr. azar, thank you so much. coming up, "work a who will licks" made a tv star. now he's carving out his place on the big screen. we'll talk to him right after this.
