the washed out roads making it difficult for emergency personnel to get the help where they need. governor mccrory has been giving daily updates to the media. here what's he had to say this morning. >> if you are around the tar river, neuse river, lundy river stay away from the water. whether walking or riding in a car, do not get >> reporter: for people who have had to leave their flooded homes there is help. the american red cross has set up more than 60 shelters across eastern north carolina sheltering 3,000 people. all of this water that is hitting goldsboro from the river, that will move down stream and there are several river communities further down stream that could see historic flooding from this aftermath of hurricane matthew.
renee choou, nbc news. >> kelly: so hard to see all that water knowing how long it's going take for all that to go down. here at home, things are much quieter. i want to throw things out with a time-lapse from this morning. this is oe o'callaghan middle school camera. a lot of sub scheibe to start. -- sunshine. high, thin clouds later in the morning. that's what we're going to see today. more of the filtered sunshine that we're seeing the o'callaghan middle school camera right now. temperatures as you are heading out the door. heading out to 85 degrees at deering elementary school. lamb and vegas valley. winds nice and light today. sierra zisa high school coming in at 80. winds northeast, southeast now at five. again, nice, comfortable, somewhat cool out there right now. temperatures will be above normal this afternoon. we're going to top out around 87. normal for today's date is 82. 84 as you are heading home from work at six. by 9:00 p.m., 76 degrees.
unfortunate timing for the weekend. we're going to talk about what those entail coming up. >> krystal: a train crashing into a semi-truck and the driver narrowly escapes. my goodness this video is dramatic. >> michelle: we'll show you exactly how close this guy came. wow. definitely makes your heart skip a beat. a teen accused of drugging an officer cleared of all charges. what he is saying about how police treated him. >> krystal: celebrating national hispanic heritage month. we have a special performance in studio. you don't want to miss this. the rancho high school -- that's why she was clapping -- mariachi bands. they are so good. coming up at 12:30, "news 3 live
or the $17 million judgment he never paid. he can try, but he can't make his record disappear. danny tarkanian: just a con man who can't bury the truth. house majority pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. jim childs: one of the ways criminals avoid background checks is by going online and connecting with strangers to buy guns. as someone
in law enforcement, i think that's dangerous. millions of guns are sold through websites like this,
why don't we require them online? a few clicks of the mouse, now a bad guy is armed - and potentially
dangerous. and that's a threat to all of us. narrator vo: yes on question 1 >> krystal: talk about a close call. this video -- oh my goodness. what's happening here is the driver of a semi apparently got stuck on the train tracks. look at the highlighted circle.
narrowly misses him. i mean, i could just imagine what he was thinking. so this happened around noon tuesday in wat ater, california. a viewer of our sister station there was waiting for the train to pass and pulled out his cell phone when he saw all this. then you see that california highway patrol officer bracing himself for what was going to happen. he backed away. but the driver in the semi-truck is lucky to be alive for sure. >> michelle: police in rhode island investigating after a car smacked into a -- it was an suv. look how much damage was done. nobody was in the building -- nobody in the building was hurt. and the studio or transmitting equipment there, they were affected. some of it was. police say that one person in the suv was taken to the local hospital with minor injuries. they're still trying to figure out what caused that crash. >> krystal: a utah teen breathing a sigh of relief after being cleared of accusations that he drugged a police officer.
subway employee -- you are seeing video of him here -- was accused of tampering with an officer's drive-thru order. police say he was caught on surveillance video lacing the officer's drink with thc. police have released test results that show the officer's drink came back negative for illegal substances. so this young man says initially he was really upset with the way police handled this investigation. >> it would be nice eve j you know, hey we made a mistake, we're sorry. it's not so much anger but more disappointment in how the situation was handled. and, you know, i support the law enforcement. i am pro police. but it has been disappointing to see how the investigation was handled and to have that, you know, this happen. >> krystal: he says it really comes good news because he had spent months getting threats.
patience for this investigation but stopped short of giving them an apology or recognizing wrongdoing. if you drive a toyota prius there's an important recall about toyota. toyota has issued a global recall for 340,000 prius gas/electric hybrid vehicles to fix a potentially deadly defect involving the parking brake. about 92,000 recalls are here in the you r u.s. it involves the models. toyota says there's a possibility the parking brake could become inoperative. so if the driver exits with the transmission in gear in any other gear other than park while the ignition is on, the vehicle could roll away. toyota has received reports of crashes, injuries, and deaths. for more information on this recall head to our website, news3lv.com. >> krystal: really important information to pass along. aerials from a drone show the devastation and destruction
hurricane matthew just devastated that country. hundreds of people were killed by last week's hurricane. and the united nations says 1.4 million haitians need help. supplies have been trickling in but are slow to reach increasingly desperate remote areas. the aftermath of hurricane matthew has increased the risk of renewed spike in cholera. so that country just really facing a lot of challenges as they move forward. as ppl parts of north carolina really hit hard by flooding as a result of hurricane matthew. the number of four-legged friends impacted as well. a pack of puppies is among those who are really having a tough time. a team of firefighters rescued more than a dozen from an animal shelter. a breach along the river prompted flooding monday morning. so they still don't know if the dams are going to hold. president obama declaring a state of emergency in north
federal funds immediately available to those areas that have been hit by the storm. seems like we've been getting updates daily from the governor about how dire the situation is in that area. >> michelle: and you see this video and you just think about all the different aspects of the storm and how many are affected by it. it's rough for them. hopefully those dams don't break. >> kelly: hopefully they hold together. and, either way, they're looking at a long, long clean up there. and evenon six years since the earthquake? they haven't recovered from that. now they have to recover from this. so definitely a mess there. we are thankful for our beautiful weather that we have here at home. it has been a very nice day. we started out with a lot of sunshine. this is the southeast career and technical academy time-lapse. a few more clouds working their way in as we get into the noon hour. as you are seeing more filtered sunshine right now. that's what we're expecting not
we're going see similar weather conditions. today winds are nice and light. that will not be the case later this week. as you are heading out right now, maybe heading out for lunch, green valley 83. lakes at 82. nellis, 84. and sunrise 86. again, very pleasant weather for us right now. the winds very light. winds picking up on friday as the first of two systems starts to work its way into the area. right now again all we're seeing are high thin clouds that are making their way in. but we have several -- a ce their way in from the pacific northwest. the first one coming through friday into saturday. the next one sunday into monday. both of which are going to bring pretty powerful wind gusts. but the second one is going to bring in cooler air as well. today still above normal. normal high for today's date is 82. today we're looking at 87. mostly sunny skies. winds southeast about three to eight miles per hour. overnight tonight, getting a little bit cooler. 63 for the low with mostly clear
forecast here, we are looking at mostly sunny skies tomorrow, 86. breezy conditions friday through monday. four days are these gusty days. on the back side temperatures will get cooler. 81 on monday. 80 for the high on tuesday. >> michelle: thank you. a warn to college students with student loans. don't fall for ads that promise to help get your debt under control. >> krystal: marie mortera explains, y help that you are looking for. >> marie: by the time they graduate, college under grads have an average of $35,000 in student loan debt. for grad students it's much higher. a lot of debt settling companies claim they can help you negotiate special payment plans for a fee. the national foundation for credit counseling has a warning. >> a lot of these offers are making guarantees and promises they can't keep. >> reporter: bruce says the offers can be deceptive. the companies apply their time
front. some promise partial or total debt forgiveness. >> but they can't guarantee my loan will be reduced. >> there's nobody that can promise debt forgiveness on student loan debt. none of these operations that are asking you to pay a fee up front for debt settlement are connected in any way to the federal government. >> reporter: students with government loans are prime targets but debt settlement scams prey on any student who owes money. the debt is to head to the u.s. college of education. next contact a certified nonprofit credit counseling service for help figuring out a payment plan. with this rip-off alert, i'm marie mortera. >> michelle: talking about you don't have to be in college to still have college loans. so many of us still paying those off. >> krystal: if you add on top of that being scammed that's a whole other layer of frustration. >> michelle: some voters having
season. i mean, come on you have to. hashtag #trump kin is trending. with photos of pumpkins that look like donald trump. we're going to share some after the break. i'm one of the lucky ones. i had breast cancer, but they caught it in time. for that kind of screening and care. so i'll never understand politicians like congressman heck, who tried to defund planned parenthood. he was even willing to shut down the government over it. heck was opposed to roe v. wade and tried to criminalize abortion. that's just shameful, it's just wrong, it doesn't help anybody. congressman heck does not share
he's divisive and dangerous. member." but congressman hardy supports trump 100% and said he'll do whatever trump wants him to do. hardy even said people with
disabilities are a drain on society and that seniors who rely on programs like social security are a draw on government. donald trump and congressman hardy -- divisive and dangerous.
>> krystal: according to a study by microsoft and stanford university, playing poke money could lengthen -- poke money could lengthen your life. >> michelle: we told you really good exercise. now they are finding people who played added 144 billion steps. that works out to 192 additional steps daily per user. researchers say this could have impact odds overall public health but only if users continued the behavior indefinitely. so researchers caution that's a big if. evidence shows the popularity of pokemon go is starting to wane a little. so it isn't clear if people will
you are not sitting down. you know in front of the tv. >> krystal: that's a positive thing. all right. amazon launching a paid streaming music service. so it's called amazon music unlimited. the service is set to compete against existing music streaming services like spotify. we hear a lot about that. and apple music. it's going dollars you year or $79 a year for prime members. which is basically the same monthly fee charge bid spotify. the owners of the echo smart feature will be able to get the unlimited service on one device for $4 a month. everybody is talking about the big race for the white house. >> michelle: so it may be getting really testy between the candidates and kind of nasty. people having fun with this. i was just looking at this.
hashtag that's trending. what's making me laugh is the comments. oh boy the trump-kin is a thing. this one is my favorite. make halloween great again. so people are obviously as you see here turning their pumpkins into trump-kins. if you happen to have done this, if you have a trumpkin we'd love to you've heard plenty about joe heck and the tax
breaks he's voted for. have spent to elect him. bad enough. but heck voted time and time again to limit nevada solar. risking jobs and higher rates. for nevada families, it's personal. catherine cortez masto will expand clean energy solar jobs. catherine cortez masto will fight for nevada families. edf action and lcv victory fund are responsible for the
forcement, i think that's dangerous. millions of guns are sold through websites like this, most with no background checks, no questions asked. the law requires background checks in gun stores; why don't we require them online? a few clicks of the mouse, now a bad guy is armed - and potentially dangerous. and that's a threat to all of us. narrator vo: yes on question 1 jacky rosen: i'm jacky rosen,
and as a computer programmer, i created apps... and i learned there's always a smart solution. as president of my synagogue, we found a smart solution to rising energy costs... creating one of the largest solar projects in the state. in congress, i'll work with democrats and republicans to make all of nevada a leader in solar, to improve our schools, and create good jobs. i approved this message because i know we can find smart solutions... even in washington.
so you can imagine what
i thought when i saw donald trump say... "i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!" "that reporter he is talking about suffers from a chronic condition that impairs movement of his arms." i don't want a president who makes fun of me. i want a president who inspires me, and that's not donald trump. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> michelle: right now on "news 3 live at 12:30," special session. a stadium a few steps away from being approved this week. we're live from carson city are an update on the on going special session to approve this major plan. >> krystal: home for the
