remember those days? that's what's happening "today in the bay." we're back at 7:25 with a live local news update. >> hopefully a passing grade. see you again tomorrow bright and early. good morning. breaking news. a powerful earthquake rocks central italy overnight causing widespread devastation. at least 37 people killed as crews dig for survivors out of the rubble. trouble looming. a big storm brewing in the atlantic and gaining strength. it could become a hurricane as early as this weekend. florida, louisiana, texas, all potentially in its path. blurred lines. donald trump back on the attack. >> it is now abundantly clear that the clintons set up a business to profit from public office. >> this time over a new report showing more than half of hillary clinton's non-government
meetings as secretary of state were with donors to her family's charity. this morning, why the clinton campaign is calling that report utterly flawed. and cashing in? a new twist in the controversy surrounding the skyrocketing cost of life-saving epipens. the salary of the head of the company that makes them rising from $2 million to nearly $19 million in just eight years. the outrage and the company's explanation, "today," wednesday, august 24th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning, a morning that we've got breaking news coming out of europe. that strong earthquake striking central italy early this morning. the epicenter, about 100 miles to the northeast of rome. one mayor saying that his town isn't there anymore.
nbc's lucy kavanov is in the hard-hit area of amatrice. she's with us on the phone. >> reporter: morning, matt and savannah. it is a race against the clock to save those trapped beneath the rubble. the earthquake struck in the dead of night. there was no time to react. at 6.2 magnitude, it was powerful enough to jolt people awake 100 miles away in rome. in this mountainous central region of italy, the earthquake hit several towns, but here in amatrice the devastation was worst. ancient buildings and churches destroyed, cars crushed. the town center now a pile of rubble, rocks and twisted metal blocking these once-idyllic streets. even part of the hospital, now gone. there are some 70 people under
the rubble this firefighter says. emergency workers and residents use shovels, bulldozers, even bare hands to try to rescue those trapped beneath the rubble. the rubble of their destroyed homes. "we need chain saws," says this firefighter. we need everything." some didn't survive. others are still missing. those who escaped unharmed in shock and disbelief. "the whole ceiling fell on my head," this survivor says. "i just managed to put a pillow on my head and i wasn't hit. i was lucky." it's a tragedy this country has known before. eight years ago a powerful quake in l'aquila claimed more than 300 lives. that city remain a ghost town. in rome this morning, pope francis prayed for the victims of today's tragedy. "hearing that there are children among the victims," he says, "i am deeply saddened." the buildings may one day be rebuilt, but life here has been
shattered. officials are pleading for donations of rescue supplies, food, water and medicine. and the scariest thing, guys, is that we're still feeling aftershocks, things here could get worse before they get better. matt, savannah? >> lucy kafanov, we apologize for some of the difficulties in transmission but as you can imagine, it's a difficult time. for sure. also in morning, a potential threat is developing in the atlantic. people from florida to texas should be watching it closely. al is watching it right now. good morning. >> good morning, guys. we have a couple of systems out there in the atlantic. we have gaston, but we aren't really worried about that. what we are watching is investigation area 99-l, which will most likely become a tropical depression. it has a 75% chance in five days of becoming a tropical entity. this is the formation zone over the next five days, stretching from the leeward islands,
southern bauhamas and miami. the storm moves across the bahamas, strengthening friday afternoon. but look at this, on sunday, the american model keeps it over the bahamas. sunday it comes across as a tropical storm in southern miami and here's where the big difference happens. next week it hangs around as a rainmaker in florida but it comes out into the gulf in the european model as a potential hurricane. you got gulf waters of 80 to 90 degrees. this could be a major storm, guys, threatening louisiana, the texas gulf coastline. but either way it is a big, big rainmaker for florida. but worst case, it's not good news for our friends in louisiana. >> al, thank you. in the race for the white house now, donald trump held a late rally in texas last night blasting hillary clinton over an associated press report that accuses her of blurring the lines between her role as
secretary of state and her family's foundation. we have two reports on this starting with nbc's andrea mitchell. andrea, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. hillary clinton under fire today from donald trump claiming clinton foundation donors got special access when she was secretary of state. and now it is not just about her e-mails. >> reporter: donald trump throwing a new punch at hillary clinton. his ammunition, a new report from the associated press. >> it is impossible to figure out where the clinton foundation ends and the state department begins. >> reporter: the associated press reviewing clinton's calendars as secretary of state reporting more than half her non-government visitors or callers were clinton foundation donors. >> this is corruption. and this is why i have called for a special prosecutor to look into this mess. >> reporter: but the clinton campaign is pushing back hard. spokesman brian fallon saying
the story relies on utterly flawed data and cherry-picked a limited subset of clinton's schedule. for example, the list includes philanthropist melinda gates. but authorities are combing through more clinton e-mails and definitive answers. >> reporter: even as clinton allies argue the republican nominee is in no position to question clinton's ethics. >> donald trump has zero credibility talking about any of these issues until this man releases his taxes. >> reporter: but clinton's e-mail troubles aren't going away. as many as 15,000 could be released before the election, and the pentagon confirms an army unit at ft. leonard wood in missouri put clinton's picture in a training slide show for spotting insider threats, along with edward snowden, chelsea
manning convicted in the wikileaks case, and general david petraeus who pleaded guilty to sharing classified documents with his biographer with whom he was having an affair. clinton has not been charged with anything. the army says the slide show is no longer being used. all this as hillary clinton is fund-raising again today with the stars in california, raining in millions, even posing in a photo booth with justin timberlake and jessica beal, among her celebrity hosts. but it is going to be harder for clinton to escape the uproar now over another kind of fund-raising by the clinton foundation. now under pressure despite all of its good works to close down to avoid any future conflicts if she is elected. matt and savannah? >> andrea mitchell on this story, thank you. also at that texas rally, trump renewed efforts to win over minority voters but some critics say this witch pitch is falling flat. nbc's hallie jackson has that part of the story. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: hey, savannah, good morning.
this morning a trump campaign senior advisor tells me the candidate is ready to roll out this new strategy to try to appeal to african-american voters set to reveal an economic empowerment plan taking more trips to urban areas. expect to see this under scored today as trump heads to michigan and he's headed to battleground florida as he tries to chip away at hillary clinton's support with the minority community. >> reporter: a new pitch and a new push as donald trump works to win over african-americans. >> to the african-american community, give donald trump a chance. we will make your streets safe so when you walk down the street, you don't get shot. >> reporter: critics calling the new outreach condescending as the gop nominee tries to expand beyond his base of white voters. turning to minority communities. but the top aide telling nbc news it is part of an ongoing
conversation. among african-american voters, trump trails hillary clinton by a staggering 79 points in our latest nbc news/survey monkey online poll. trump promises if he is elected, he'll end up with way more support. his running mate finding that funny. >> he says by 2020 he's going to have 95% of the african-american support. why are you laughing? >> well, that's donald trump. look. look. he has heart for every american. >> reporter: trump has work to do with hispanic voters, too, as he talks tough on border security in texas where his name was spelled out but his immigration position was not. candidate hinting he's ready to walk back his hardline stance on deportation. >> there certainly can be a softening because we're not looking to hurt people. we want people -- we have some great people in this country. >> reporter: still, trump hasn't gotten specific about how he might soften some of his immigration positions. we may find out more in the
coming days. tomorrow the candidate is set to meet with republican and african-american activists at trump tower in new york. savannah. >> hallie jackson, thank you. turning to north carolina now where authorities there are urging people not to rush to judgment over that fatal shooting of a deaf man by a state trooper. the death of daniel harris is sending shockwaves through the charlotte community where he lived as his family demands answers. nbc's blake mccoy spoke with them. blake, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. this family is frustrated. they are desperate for answers and they can't help but wonder what role daniel harris' disability played in him being shot. they're speaking out this morning while law enforcement here in north carolina remained tight-lipped. >> he would call me every day. >> reporter: this morning, loved ones are remembering daniel harris as athletic, outgoing, and for his big heart. his brother and sister both deaf like daniel communicating their grief through sign language.
"when i was told, honestly, i was just broke. i was in such shock. he was the sweetest man on earth. it's impossible that it happened. >> i want to know the full story. i want to know exactly what happened. >> reporter: both believe miscommunication between harris and north carolina state trooper jermaine saunders may have played a role in the traffic stop that turned deadly. if they had known the person was deaf, this wouldn't happened. 6:14 thursday the trooper tried to pull over harris' volvo for allegedly speeding on i-485. harris didn't stop leading the trooper on a seven-mile chase ending on a street where harris lives. no one knows why harris didn't stop, but when he got out of his car according to police an encounter took place between the driver and the trooper causing a shot to be fired.
>> shots fired. >> one suspect down. >> reporter: harris died just steps from his front door. >> it keeps running through my mind? i can't accept it. why did the officer shoot? there's nothing! >> reporter: trooper saunders is on paid leave this morning routine after an officer shooting. state bureau of investigation saying in a statement, "let us refrain from making assumptions or drawing conclusions prior to the internal and independent reviews." authorities are in the process of obtaining all available dash cam and body camera video to help them determine what happened. >> he had no weapon. i've known him since he was born. he was harmless, harmless individual. >> how ironic is that? he's never touched one and yet he's killed by one. >> i know. i know. >> reporter: the family hopes harris' death spurs training for officers on how to communicate with deaf people. they've started a fund with that goal in mind. this morning law enforcement giving no timeline on when they
might release more information. i'm told that the family knows as much as we do. >> blake mccoy, thank you. growing anger this morning among the millions of people who rely on having an emergency epipen at all times to guard against potentially deadly allergic reactions. the company that makes that drug has hiked the price more than 400% over eight years, while during that same time period its executive's compensation is up more than 600%. nbc's tom costello is on the story this morning. >> reporter: this is the medicine being states require schools to stock. but the company that makes the epipen has a near monopoly and now members of congress are calling on a federal investigation into price gouging. >> reporter: it's called shock,
a life threatening situation. many schools keep epi pens just dm st case of an emergency. 9-year-old joshua fernandez is allergic to nuts but over the eight years the price to pharmacies for an epipen two-pack has skyrocketed from $100 to $600. and the pens must be replaced yearly. now nbc news has found that over the same period, mylan pharmaceuticals raised executive pay and compensation by more than 600%. >> i'm struggling to just provide basic life saving medicine for my child and the money that i pay for this medication is going to somebody's paycheck or some crazy profit margin. >> reporter: in congress both republicans and democrats are alleging price gouging calling for an investigation. senator amy klobuchar's daughter has relied on an epipen. >> how can you complain this very same item made by an american company is hundreds of dollars cheaper in canada. >> reporter: mylan pharmaceuticals tells nbc news the price change better reflects
important product features around the value the product provides and it offers coupons to help customers with high insurance deductibles. but mylan is not talking about ceo heather bresch's total compensation going from $2.4 million to nearly $19 million over eight years. >> it's coming at a time when there's almost never been more scrutiny on the drug industry for its pricing practices. >> there is another version on the markets but doctors are reluctant to prescribe it because so many people have now been trained to use the epipen and they don't want people fumbling around to give someone epinephrine during an emergency. >> schools being asked to stockpile it so we're talking about taxpayers dollars too. al, you were talking about a big storm in the atlantic but now a nice day in the northeast? >> yeah. spectacular weather. low humidity, sunny. warm. we do see storm later on today down through the gulf coast. more showers around baton rouge.

a new lawsuit emerging against fox news for alleged sexual harassment. this comes just a month after chairman roger ailes left that organization amid accusations of misconduct. nbc's senior legal and investigative correspondent cynthia mcfadden is here with more. she's been on this story from the start. >> good morning, savannah. well, former fox news anchor, andrea tantaros filed a lawsuit claiming she was not only harassed by retaliated by a number of fox news executives including roger ailes and more once she complained. the former co-host of fox news shows is taking on what she called in her complaint a sex-fueled playboy mansion like cult steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny. in the lawsuit filed this week, she stated that when she had
been employed in 2011 through 2016 but allegation in late summer of 2014 her tenure at fox news devolved into a nightmare of sexual harassment by recently ousted ceo roger ailes. the suit says on two occasions ailes asked her to turn around so i can get a good look at you. he is not the only one she says acted inappropriately. even though he is not named as a defendant in a lawsuit, she claims in her complaint that bill o'reilly started sexually harassing her in february of this year. through representatives at fox, o'reilly declined nbc's request for comment. but two guests who appeared on fox are publicly refuting her claims. actor dean cain, who she said in her complaint he inappropriately hugged her in a live webcast, through his attorney responds that he never acted in an appropriate manner toward her. scott brown accused in a lawsuit of putting his hands around her waist said in a tweet that, as a survivor of sexual abuse, i would never perpetrate language
or actions as described in fox' complaint. according to the suit, tantaros says they are complaints to fox executives fell on ears and that fox's current co-president, bill shine, told her ailes was a very powerful man and that she needed to "let this one go." in a statement to "new york times," shine said andrea never made any complaints to me about roger ailes sexually harassing her. >> regardless of the truth of allegations, the way the court of public opinion works is the more smoke there is, the more likely people respond to the fire. >> fox news said in april issues had arisen regarding andrea's contract, a reference to a book she relent -- recently pub accomplished. mr. roker has a check of the weather. >> we were looking at some

hand transplant. and it came true. >> reporter: last summer zion made history becoming the first ever child resip yebts cipient e hand transplant. a long road to recovery marked with a rigorous therapy regimen. >> this last year has been like a roller coaster, up, down, fast, slow. it's been -- it's just been crazy. >> we've been tested. it definitely has been a year to remember. >> reporter: zion's mom says her son may have just turned 9 but this year they've celebrated firsts from holding hands to hugging and the world of opportunities now within his reach. >> i'm very excited because now i can do more than i imagined. >> well, zion, his mom patty rae and dr. scott levin, the lead

aunt shay. and i would do anything to keep it that way. >> you got a good team with you and your mom is at the top of that. patty, i can't even imagine having gone through what you did with him at age 2, to now and seeing what he's able to do. what has this journey been like for you? >> this journey has definitely been a roller coaster. not easy. it started when i was very young. so i didn't have a manual. i had never been here before. but as a mother, you know, as mothers we just have to protect and fight. that's what i've been doing, protecting and fighting for him and for the best for him. >> and to see him do all these things, he can do, throwing a baseball. >> to see him throwing that baseball just took my heart. i couldn't even record it, it was so happy. i was jumping and screaming. he was like why are you
screaming so loud? because. this is like a moment that before i may not have had. >> zion, you threw that ball farther than i think i could throw it. you have a lot of practice? >> well, i play a lot of baseball. they put me as pitcher a lot. but i'm good batter, too. i'm -- well, i'm -- well, my mom was recording a video but i wouldn't say her video was the best. she was mostly jumping up and down screaming. >> it got a little shaky? dr. levin, the reward is right here. i can't imagine how this fills your heart. i want to make clear though, he has worked really hard. you guys did this incredibly complex surgery and then he worked so hard every day in therapy to get here. >> right, his motivation, savannah, his commitment. he has a great family team. we have a great team at penn medicine children's hospital. we work with our shriners colleagues to make this happen. and we are so proud of him. we won.

it was an 8-year-old girl waiting outside one of your tv shows. she was so beautiful. the name was so beautiful, but the character jolene is not that sweet, innocent girl. who is this venomous woman? >> actually, i kind of over exaggerated a little bit. when my husband and i first got married he was flirting with this beautiful girl down at the bank. he was making some sort of a deal with her, he says. he was just enjoying a little bit too much. i got jealous. you know how we are. of course she had everything i didn't like legs. big, beautiful hair. >> she didn't have everything. >> she had lots of stuff. but seriously. so i just i was kind of -- beautiful name with the little girl. so i just kind of wove it all around. it's been my most recorded song. other people record it all the time. >> what do you feel when you perform with, for example, katy perry. there you are on stage and she's
worshipping you and singing with you on stage. what's that like for you? >> it touches me that i had some sort of influence on a lot of young girls coming along. so it makes me feel good. and that they kind of look to me for a little bit of guidance as girl singers in the business. so i've just been around a long time. so i'm happy to get to sing with those people. kind of helps me career now. >> you got keith urban doing it. you got jack white and the white stripes doing it. >> everybody does it. >> what's your favorite version, non-dolly? >> of "jolene"? >> yeah. >> i think miley cyrus did a wonderful job on "jolene." she sings it all the time. we did it at a duet at the 25th anniversary at dollywood. >> so that means you don't have a favorite of other people singing it? >> i like them all. when you write songs, you're just proud that other people do them. i'm intrigued by all the different variations and the different takes that people do
on different songs of mine. but i think i have to say i really like miley's version. >> how about that little 8-year-old girl. i wonder where she is. >> well, i got a letter from a little girl that thinks that that might be here. >> hold that thought. we'll get to that when we come back. much more from dolly after your local news. >> yeah. she sent me a picture. on dirt and grime and grease in just a minute mr. clean will clean your whole house and every room that's in it. floors, doors, walls, halls he's so tough, he cleans'em all grimy tubs and tiles he'll do so your bathroom looks clean as new mr. clean gets tough on stuck-on stuff cleans kitchens in a minute. mr. clean will clean your whole house and every room that's in it. mr. clean, mr. clean, mr. clean! put under a microscope, we can see all the bacteria that still exists. polident's unique micro clean formula works in just 3 minutes,

persky sentenced him to six months for assaulting a woman. critics called the sentence too lenient. e he could have received ten years in state prison. today's protest is being organized at the california commission on judicial performance building and that is in san francisco. on the weather front, it's going to get toastier inland. we'll have a look at weather and traffic right after this.
you're watching the marine air compress down to the base of the clouds. downtown san francisco at 60 degrees. not expected to warm much. and a lot of gray chis still in san jose. 63 and we will see the low clouds slowly start to clear right around midday today. highs near 80 in san jose. mid-60s in san francisco. north bay temperatures in the upper 70s with mid-80s in the forecast. here's mike with the commute.
>> things are calming down, but you see the arrow slowing toward san hill. an earlier crash had things tied up. that was a little extra. here eastbound 580 is slow. we had a crash cleared a half an hour. still slow off the area and 17 still slow. all lanes cleared, but this took quite some time to recover. the south bay commute has kicked in. back to you. >> that morning commute back in full force. thank you. that's going to do it for us now. we'll be. back in 30 minutes with more updates.
we are back with one of the biggest superstars in the world today, a living legend, the great dolly parton. dolly, we just talked a second ago about the little girl, jolene, whom you named the song after. >> yes. >> so you got a letter from somebody claiming to be jochher? do you think it's authentic? >> might be but she said her name was jolee. but i might have misheard. so i'm not sure. might not be the right one. i'm going to research it. because i always wanted to know. >> you find out, you should reveal. then you can have the person
come on the show and reveal the real jolene. >> sweeps. that's the huge reveal. >> i'll check it out. >> dolly, i want to know how you became so open. one of the quotes that people will come to me and say, you look so pretty in that dress. i say it takes a lot of money to look this cheap. obviously that's a famous dolly parton quote. i probably say it every other day of my life. how are you so open, especially being a woman when it is easy for us to show plastic surgery, things we may do to look as good as you do. why are you so open? >> well, why not be? people ask me things. even like about plastic surgery. somebody say why do you talk about it? i say i probably wouldn't if i didn't get caught. first time i ever had anything done they were hiding in a dumpster in the alley so they got a picture. i thought well, i can't very well deny it. thought i might as well just tell it. seriously, i think it is important because i am just that kind of person.
if you're going to do things, you need to choke it out and get goo doctors and make sure you are doing the right thing. don't just jump out a dumpster and think you are going to get some doctor there. but i've always had good doctors. tried to. >> you are more famous for how open you are about that and other things than for any assets or anything you might have done to yourself. when you go out on the road and you are doing this tour now, largest in 25 years for you, is it an evening with dolly? do you talk and tell stories and bring people in like that? >> i do. in fact, i tell a lot of stuff -- we have a lot of laughs, just like i always use that joke, "cost a lot to look this cheap." but i try to add some of that little humor and things just to keep the mood light. but i love the people. i feel like it's like a family reunion. i never met a stranger. i love those faces loving me. so we just have a little love fest. >> you said earlier you were surprised because songs have not been on the radio as of late.
then here you have this groundswell of people paying to come see you in concert. why are you still surprised? is that just how you were raised? >> no, i think it's more than that. course we've ben having serious sell-out tours in europe for years, australia, new zealand. but here in the united states, it is a rule that if you go on tour, you have to have an album and you are usually being played on the radio. you are the whot people on the radio, ones having the hits. when new country came along, me being one of the old artists, they played my classics on the hour and once in a while they play something. so i just assumed -- since i wasn't having hit records here in the states -- that i probably wouldn't be selling out a house. but since we were doing so well everywhere else, the promoter said, can't we try? i said, well, if you think we can sell. sure enough, it's just been amazing. so we started in june.
we go through december, mid-december. we're going into canada next month which is great. first time i've done a long extensive tour there. so i'm loving it. the crowd's loving it. >> what country -- besides -- you are ours. you belong to america. but what country goes bonkers for dolly? >> well, in europe they do it but i think i love australia myself because that's like -- it's so far away. >> they're in the game with keith urban. >> i love him, too. but i love it all. we are very popular in europe. england, the uk . >> you are popular everywhere. >> but i've been around a long time. i did movies, also. a lot of the artist may not be that popular around the world but since i've actually been in some pretty big movies i think that has a lot to do with it, too. >> can we just ask you a couple -- almost out of time. i'm negotiating. please? what is your preshow ritual? >> well, i pray and pea.
in that order. >> love that! me, too! me, too! on that note, no more questions. pray and pee! >> dolly parton, thank you so much. we will be seeing you again with hoda and kathie lee. we're not done. it is a dolly fest like you've never seen it. >> i'm here all day. billy makes his flash with the ladies. synchronized swimming? dolly, he even has a nickname. billy's nickname -- billy "the lilly." >> i'm seeing -- >> go pray and pee in this >> go pray and pee in this commercial break a olive garden's buy onstarting at $12.99. because there's nothing like a great meal with the family. except maybe another great meal with the family. buy one take one. choose one delicious entrée, like our new pepperoni fettuccine alfredo or our chicken pot pie italiano. plus unlimited salad and breadsticks at our place, and another for yours, for free. starting at $12.99. may all your tomorrows be as delicious as today.

big complaint with people is that their dog walks poorly on the leash. look for something like a head collar where the loop connects to the front of the dog. that keeps them from pulling hard. jackson down here is wearing a nice, shiny harness with a loop on the front. again that decreases pulling substantially. >> my dog is three pounds and we have the harness. how do you know what type of leash or collar is best for your dog? >> i am a big fan of anything -- nothing that connects to the back because that really remotes them pulling. it is like attaching a horse to a cart. so something up front underneath their nose or like this little guy. these bowls are made of recycled glass. glass is one of the safest things you can put into and they are they sturdy. these are collapsible and made of repsycsirepsyche -- recyclab.
