THERE?
>>Reporter: LESTER, PARTS OF THE FLORIDA
COAST ARE FEELING
TROPICAL STORM CONDITIONS, EVEN
THOUGH THE EYE OF THIS
HURRICANE IS ABOUT 100 MILES OFFSHORE.
WE ARE SEEING
EXTREMELY CHOPPY SURF AND SOME BANDS OF

HERE.
ACROSS THE U.S., MORE THAN 1800 FLIGHTS WERE
CANCELED TODAY, ABOUT
ANOTHER 2000 WERE DELAYED, MANY OF THEM

EFFECT FARTHER UP THE
COAST. LESTER?
>>ALL RIGHT, GABE,
THANK YOU. AND THE THREAT TO

LEAVING ACROSS THIS BRIDGE SOON.
THERE IS JUST ONE MAIN
ROAD ALONG THE OUTER BANKS AND OFFICIALS
WORRY IT COULD FLOOD,
LEAVING PEOPLE TRAPPED IF THEY DON’T EVACUATE
SOON, LESTER.
>>KRISTEN DAHLGREN, THANK YOU.
AND NOW FOR WHERE
DORIAN COULD BE HEADED NEXT, LET’S BRING IN
AL ROKER.
AL, WHERE IS THE STORM HEADING?
>>LESTER, DORIAN IS
PICKING UP SPEED MOVING WEST AT 6 MILES
PER HOUR, 110 MILE PER
HOUR WINDS, EAST SOUTHEAST OF CAPE
CANAVERAL FLORIDA.
THE TRACK OF THE STORM PARALLELS THE COAST.
BY THURSDAY MORNING
OFF OF SAVANNAH, CHARLESTON AND THEN IT
MAKES ITS WAY PAST
CAPE HATTERAS, POSSIBLY MAKING
LANDFALL SOMETIME
FRIDAY AND CONTINUING ON.
HERE’S WHAT WE’RE
LOOKING AT AS FAR AS THE IMPACTS ARE
CONCERNED.
WE’RE TALKING TROPICAL FORCE WINDS THAT
STRETCH OUT 175 MILES
FROM THE CENTER, SO WE’LL BE FEELING THOSE
EFFECTS ALONG THE
COAST. THAT WILL CAUSE STORM
SURGE.
ANYWHERE FROM 2 TO 4 FEET IN CENTRAL
FLORIDA.
COASTAL JACKSONVILLE TO SAVANNAH, ABOUT 3
TO 5 FEET.
4 TO 7 FEET ALL THE WAY TO CAPE LOOKOUT,
AND RAIN IS GOING TO
BE POSSIBLY HEAVY, UPWARDS OF 15 INCHES
OF RAIN IN SOME SPOTS,
LESTER, BUT FROM JACKSONVILLE TO CAPE
HATTERAS, GENERALLY 5
TO 7 INCHES. THE FLORIDA COAST, THE
GEORGIA COAST AND THE
CAROLINAS ALL STILL HAVE TO BE ON A HIGH
ALERT.
>>ALL RIGHT, AL, THANK YOU.
>>>IN CALIFORNIA
TONIGHT, THE SEARCH FOR ANSWERS
INTENSIFIES AFTER THAT
DEVASTATING BOAT FIRE. AUTHORITIES NOW SAYING
ALL 33 PASSENGERS AND
ONE CREW MEMBER ARE PRESUMED DEAD.
AMONG THOSE LOST, FIVE
MEMBERS FROM ONE FAMILY.
MIGUEL ALMAGUER
TONIGHT WITH NEW DETAILS.
>>Reporter: THE BOAT
FIRE EXPLODED SO QUICKLY OFF SANTA
BARBARA’S COAST, THE
SHERIFF SAYS THERE WAS LIKELY NO CHANCE OF
ESCAPE FOR THE 34
VICTIMS NOW PRESUMED DEAD.
>>MAY DAY, MAY DAY,
MAY DAY. >>Reporter: THE
MAYDAY CALL CAME IN
FROM FIVE SURVIVORS. >>I CAN’T BREATHE.
>>Reporter: ALL
MEMBERS OF THE CONCEPTION TAKING A
DINGY TO BOB HANSON’S
BOAT. >>THERE ARE SOME
THINGS YOU CAN’T
UNSEE. I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL
EVER FORGET THE SIGHT
OF THAT BOAT BURNING. >>Reporter: SWITCHING
FROM A SEARCH TO
RECOVERY MISSION TODAY, WHAT WAS LEFT
OF THE DIVE BOAT HAS
NOW SUNK TO THE OCEAN FLOOR.
AMONG THE MISSING, A
CALIFORNIA FAMILY OF FIVE WITH THREE
DAUGHTERS WHO LOVED TO
DIVE. SHARI McDONAGH JUST
ARRIVED FROM SINCE
CINCINNATI TO IDENTIFY HER DAUGHTER ALI, THE
ONE CREW MEMBER WHO
DIED BELOW DECK. >>NEVER THOUGHT I
WOULD EVER HAVE TO DO
THIS. >>Reporter: THE
CONCEPTION WAS
WRAPPING UP A WEEKEND DIVE TRIP LIKE THIS
ONE WHEN THE BLAZE
APPARENTLY TRAPPED THOSE SLEEPING IN
THESE TIGHT QUARTERS.
THE 75-FOOT BOAT HAS THREE LEVELS.
FIVE CREW MEMBERS WERE
ON THE TOP DECK WHEN THE FIRE BROKE OUT ON
THE SECOND DECK IN OR
AROUND THE GALLEY. THE 33 PASSENGERS AND
ONE CREW MEMBER BELOW
DECK, WITH NO WAY OUT. THE SLEEPING QUARTERS
HAD AN ENTRANCE BY THE
BOW AND A SAFETY HATCH TOWARD THE STERN.
>>AT THIS POINT IT’S
THE FIRE WAS BLOCKING BOTH ENTRANCES?
>>THAT WOULD APPEAR
TO BE WHAT HAPPENED. AT THE TIME IT WAS
DISCOVERED, THE FIRE
WAS IN SUCH A STATE THAT IT WAS — IT
ESSENTIALLY FULLY
ENGULFED THAT AREA. >>Reporter: WITH NO
CAUSE FOR THE FIRE,
TONIGHT THE CONCEPTION PERHAPS HOLDING
ANSWERS AT THE BOTTOM
OF THE SEA. >>>WITH 20 BODIES
RECOVERED,
INVESTIGATORS ARE STILL COMBING THE
WATERS BEHIND ME
LOOKING FOR THE MISSING.
IT MAY BE SOMETIME
UNTIL WE KNOW THE CAUSE OF THE FIRE.
WE ALSO SPOKE TO A
FORMER PASSENGER WHO HAS BEEN ON BOARD
THOSE CRAMPED QUARTERS
BEFORE. HE SAID HE CAN’T
IMAGINE THE SCENARIO
IN WHICH ANYONE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE
IT OFF THAT BOAT
ALIVE, LESTER? >>ABSOLUTELY
HORRIFYING.
MIGUEL, THANK YOU. >>>ALSO DETAILS ABOUT
THE MASS SHOOTING IN
ODESSA, TEXAS. OFFICIALS REVEALING
THE GUNMAN EVADED A
FEDERAL BACKGROUND CHECK TO GET THE
FIREARM HE USED IN THE
RAMPAGE. NBC’S PETE WILLIAMS
HAS LATE DETAILS.
WHAT ARE YOU LEARNING? >>Reporter: LESTER,
THEY SAY THE GUNMAN
WHO KILLED 7 PEOPLE AND INJURED 20 BOUGHT
THE GUN HE USED FROM A
PRIVATE SELLER, NOT A LICENSED DEALER.
AUTHORITIES IN TEXAS
SAID THE GUNMAN FAILED A GUN BACKGROUND CHECK
IN 2014, AND TONIGHT
SEVERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS
TELL NBC NEWS THAT’S
BECAUSE HE HAD A DISQUALIFYING MENTAL
HEALTH ISSUE.
BUT A PRIVATE SALE DOES NOT REQUIRE A
BACKGROUND CHECK.
SO INVESTIGATORS ARE NOW LOOKING INTO WHO
SOLD HIM THAT GUN.
IF THAT PERSON KNEW OF THE GUNMAN’S MENTAL
HEALTH ISSUES, THAT
SELLER COULD FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES.
MOST MASS SHOOTERS DO
COMPLETE BACKGROUND CHECKS.
THEY BUY THEIR GUNS
LEGALLY. THE HOUSE PASSED A
BILL IN FEBRUARY THAT
WOULD EXPAND BACKGROUND CHECKS
REQUIRING THEM FOR
NEARLY ALL PRIVATE SALES, BUT TONIGHT THE
SENATE LEADER MITCH
McCONNELL SAID REPUBLICANS WON’T ACT
ON A GUN BILL UNTIL
THEY KNOW WHETHER PRESIDENT TRUMP
SUPPORTS IT.
LESTER? >>ALL RIGHT, PETE
WILLIAMS IN OUR
WASHINGTON NEWSROOM. THANK YOU.
>>>THAT MASS SHOOTING
WAS THE SECOND TO STRIKE TEXAS IN A
MONTH AFTER THE
MASSACRE THAT KILLED 22 PEOPLE AT AN EL
PASO WALMART.
TONIGHT IN THE WAKE OF THAT TRAGEDY AND AMID
MOUNTING PRESSURE,
WALMART IS ANNOUNCING NEW LIMITS ON GUNS AND
AMMO SALES.
WITH MORE ON THAT, HERE’S TOM COSTELLO.
>>Reporter: THE FIRST
WEEKEND IN AUGUST BROUGHT TWO MORE MASS
KER
MASSACRES. 9 KILLED IN DAYTON,
OHIO.
EARLIER IN THE WEEK POLICE SAY A FORMER
EMPLOYEE AT A
MISSISSIPPI WALMART SHOT AND KILLED TWO
WORKERS.
TODAY WALMART C.E.O. SAID THE STATUS QUO IS
UNACCEPTABLE.
ANNOUNCING WALMART WILL DISCONTINUE SALES
OF AMMUNITION FOR
ASSAULT-STYLE WEAPONS AND HANDGUNS, AND
DISCONTINUE HAND GUN
SALES IN ALASKA, THE ONLY STATE WHERE IT
STILL SELLS HANDGUNS.
AND AFTER PANIC AT A MISSOURI WALMART —
>>MALE WEARING A
BULLET PROOF VEST AND AN AR AROUND HIS NECK
HAS JUST WALKED INTO
THE STORE AND IS RECORDING HIMSELF.
>>Reporter: ONE
SUSPECT ARRESTED. TODAY THE COMPANY
SAID, WE ARE
RESPECTFULLY REQUESTING THAT
CUSTOMERS NO LONGER
OPENLY CARRY FIREARMS INTO OUR STORES IN
STATES WHERE OPEN
CARRY IS PERMITTED. SO FAR THIS YEAR, 289
MASS SHOOTINGS.
>>WALMART LEADERSHIP IS STEPPING UP TO THE
VACUUM THEY SEE FROM
WASHINGTON LEADERSHIP. THEY HAVE TO PROTECT
THEIR CUSTOMERS.
THEY HAVE TO PROTECT THEIR ASSOCIATES.
>>Reporter: THE
QUESTION TONIGHT, WILL OTHER RETAILERS FOLLOW
WALMART’S LEAD?
DICK’S SPORTING GOODS IS ALREADY CUTTING
BACK ON GUN AND AMMO
SALES AFTER THE PARKLAND SCHOOL
SHOOTING.
IN A STATEMENT, THE NRA NOW SAYS IT IS
SHAMEFUL TO SEE
WALMART SUCCUMB TO THE PRESSURE OF THE
ANTI-GUN ELITES.
RATHER THAN PLACE THE BLAME ON THE CRIMINAL,
WALMART HAS CHOSEN TO
VICTIMIZE LAW ABIDING AMERICANS.
FOR ITS PART, WALMART
IS NOW CALLING ON THE NATION’S POLITICAL
LEADERS TO ENACT
STRONGER BACKGROUND CHECKS AND ENSURE THAT
SOMEBODY WHO SHOULDN’T
GET A WEAPON DOESN’T GET A WEAPON.
AND NOW KROGER LATE
TODAY SAID IT IS GOING TO BE JOINING WALMART
AND CALLING FOR
CUSTOMERS IN OPEN CARRY STATES, PLEASE
DO NOT CARRY A GUN
INTO THEIR STORES. LESTER?
>>ALL RIGHT, TOM
COSTELLO, THANK YOU. AND WITH MASS
SHOOTINGS DOMINATING
THE HEADLINES AS MANY CHILDREN HEAD BACK TO
SCHOOL THIS WEEK,
TONIGHT WE GO INSIDE A NEW KIND OF HIGH
SCHOOL, A $48 MILLION
DESIGN WITH FEATURES MEANT TO DETER AN
ACTIVE SHOOTER.
HERE IS INDICATE SNOW. KATE SNOW.
>>Reporter: YOU
NEEDED A NEW HIGH SCHOOL.
>>WE DID.
>>Reporter: SUPERINTENDENT BOB
SAID THEY HAD NO
CHOICE BUT TO THINK ABOUT SECURITY WHEN
DESIGNING THEIR NEW
HIGH SCHOOL. >>YOU HAVE NO IDEA
HOW HORRIBLY I FEEL
WHEN I THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS, WHEN I
THINK ABOUT THE
CHILDREN HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT IT.
>>Reporter: SO THE
SCHOOL IN FRUIT PORT, MICHIGAN, IS
ESPECIALLILY DESIGNED
FOR SAFETY. NO MORE LOCKERS IN THE
HALLWAYS.
INSTEAD SHORT LOCKERS IN A COMMON AREA SO
TEACHERS CAN SEE 900
STUDENTS AT ONCE. >>>SO THE SHAPE OF
THIS HALLWAY MATTERS.
>>IT DOES. IT WAS DESIGNED IN A
CURVE FOR A COUPLE OF
REASONS. ONE OF THE REASONS IS
TO CUT DOWN ON THE
LINE OF SIGHT OF AN ACTIVE SHOOTER GOD
FORBID WE HAVE ONE.
WE ALSO INSTALLED WING WALLS TO PROVIDE
SAFETY FOR STUDENTS TO
HIDE BEHIND IF THERE IS A THREAT DOWN THE
HALLWAY.
>>Reporter: A GRANT FROM MICHIGAN STATE
POLICE PAID FOR IMPACT
RESISTANT FILM ON THE WINDOWS, AND A SPECIAL
SYSTEM TO LOCKDOWN
SPECIFIC SECTIONS OF THE SCHOOL.
>>>HOW DO YOU
LOCKDOWN THE SCHOOL IF THAT’S NEEDED?
>>SO, WE WOULD
LOCKDOWN WITH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON.
IF I’M A THREAT AND
I’M HERE AND WE GO INTO LOCKDOWN, I CAN’T
GET ANYWHERE ELSE.
>>Reporter: INSIDE CLASSROOMS, ANOTHER
IMPORTANT WING WALL.
>>>IN THIS LITTLE AREA HERE, IF GOD
FORBID THERE WERE AN
ACTIVE SHOOTER AND WE’RE BACK HERE, HE
CAN’T SEE US.
>>RIGHT. YOU CAN FIT ABOUT 30
STUDENTS IN HERE SIGHT
UNSEEN. >>Reporter: WHEN
STUDENTS FILL THESE
HALLS IN JANUARY, THE HOPE IS THEY’LL SEE
AREAS FOR SMALL GROUP
WORK, NOT SECURITY MEASURES.
PARENTS AND STUDENTS
WE SPOKE WITH ARE SUPPORTIVE.
>>I THINK IT’S A GOOD
THING. >>I DON’T HAVE TO
THINK ABOUT WHAT IF
THE SHOOTER CAME IN RIGHT NOW.
I CAN JUST FOCUS ON,
LIKE, SPANISH CLASS. >>Reporter: MEGAN
JOHNSON HELPED RAISE
THE BOND MONEY FOR THE PROJECT.
HER KIDS ARE STILL IN
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. THESE KIDS HAVE NEVER
GROWN UP WITHOUT
SCHOOL SHOOTING. >>GIVES THEY
GOOSEBUMPS THINKING
ABOUT IT. IT’S THE WORLD THEY
LIVE IN.
HOPEFULLY WE CAN MAKE IT SO IT’S NOT
SOMETHING THEY HAVE TO
FOCUS ON. >>Reporter: A
GENERATION LEARNING IN
A WHOLE NEW ENVIRONMENT.
>>KATE, ARE WE SEEING
OTHER SCHOOLS ADD SOME OF THESE DESIGN
FEATURES?
>>YES, WE FOUND THAT — YES, MOST
SCHOOLS BEING BUILT
RIGHT NOW ARE TAKING SECURITY INTO
CONSIDERATION,
INCLUDING SOME FEATURES FOR THAT.
AS A PARENT, I HAVE TO
SAY THIS IS HARD TO SEE.
IT’S HARD TO PROCESS.
BUT THE GOAL IS FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTS
TO FEEL MORE SECURE
AND LESS FEARFUL. >>I DIDN’T KNOW
WHETHER TO FEEL BETTER
OR BE WATCHING THAT, BUT IT’S THE SIGN OF
WHERE WE’RE AT.
THANK YOU. >>>WE RECEIVED AN
OUTPOURING OF INTEREST
IN OUR ONGOING SERIES JUSTICE FOR ALL.

  1. Wood boat.
    Sleeping on lowest level.
    One exit in flames.
    No excuses.

    Why do people think best case scenario when it comes to safety then when worst happens they say I didn't think it would happen hear?

  2. Hello there!
    If you are going to build schools to prevent shootings,
    First of all,
    School police should not carry assault rifles to protect the children.
    Secondly, school police will know the layout of school grounds and can shoot children with their assault rifles.
    I will think of the third.
    ETN…
    Om Mani Pad Me Hung!

  3. You love to create copycat crimes for helping China global design; OR YOU WOULD NOT BE FOCUSING ON MASS SHOITING, BUT TO GET MORE…thats treason and one day trails will begin for TRAITORS. THE WORD ACTIVE SHOOTER IS BRIANWASHING… GIVE ME A BREAK… TRADERS USING INVADERS AS SLAVES SOLDIERS AGAINST USA…

  4. 7:45 WTF is wrong with this reporter's VOICE ?? Dude talks GLEEFULLY about people burning to death 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽🤤🤤🤤

  5. It's not like the kids in a school couldn't actually point out the weird-O's in their midst. Why then don't the schools do something to see they get the help they obviously need if they're not getting it from home.
    Special schools are a must where there can be more control.

  6. Hello there!
    Can you handle the truth.!?
    The TRUTH is that voting for the presidency will be effected by Hurricane Dorian.
    If 2.5 million people evacuate the path of Hurricane Dorian,
    How will the voting process operate,
    Please educate the Blissfully Ignorant candidates running for presidency.
    We don't need another type of collusion in the presidency.
    ETN….
    Om Mani Pad Me Hung!

  7. Lesters balls of steel!😂
    I work at a wherehouse. How do you know when your working with a convict?
    They are not sure their probation officer will let them check out a knife.😂

  8. The NRA should be behind this and not putting it that old people should have guns because that's what we do what a bunch of irresponsible people it's so sad that children in the United States have to fear guns like they do in third world country maybe the NRA should think about that

  9. The only breaking news that you Americans need to be talking about every day is the mass shooting issue you have, do you know that Texas is allowing blind people yes blind people to own pistols is this normal!

  10. Only in AMERIKKKA ppl raise $100K ASAO for dogs, but have no conscious about students learning fm outdated materials & technology & no sports or arts programs!

  11. @ 13:58 That lock down feature could actually endanger lives, if students are caught in it with the threat. They would need to use it very judiciously.

  12. This country is broken, I am for a mutual agreed divorce, lets be mature about it. It's around the corner and will end up happening sooner than later.

  13. Since the chance of the actual active shooter being a student is 99.9% how does this work? They will know the same safety measures right?

  14. Walmart & Kroger asking people not to carry legally in their store now the bad guys are going to know where to go…. Stupid

  15. Under confidentiality laws nobody should know your medical status. So why would anyone know this? Because they're all psychiatrists out there selling guns? You people ever found China in that hole you're digging?

  16. Love the panic America deserves all this for their wickedness, sins, and
    transgressions against THE MOST HIGHS chosen. You really think you can get away with white Supremacy and killing innocent minority’s? Man made laws spares you but not THE MOST HIGH. Don’t be scared now😂 This judgment is righteous!

  17. The women who took all those dogs in her house. Lady I wish I was there to help you. I wish I was there to give you a well deserved heartly hug. You were GOD sent.Love you to many slot. IAM an animal lover too.

  18. The statement from the NRA is trying to shame Walmart for taking measures by not selling certain types of ammunition and hand guns.
    That's pretty desperate but a good sign.
    The government won't step up to the plate so people who own businesses are and gotta say I'm pretty impressed.
    Also, due to having shootings in their workplace.

  19. inspired by all the efforts too help ,against school shootings" keep up the effort too give students more courage too go too school.

  20. America is insane. Children must learn how to survive a gunman. Are you kidding? Ban all guns. Repeal the second amendment

  21. Reason for all this? Since 1914: Revelation 12:7-9, Revelation 12:12, Matthew 24:3-14, Matthew 24:32-34. The end of this system is getting close.

  22. Hurricane Dorian partied in The Bahamas Bret Kavanugh style!! I hope Dorian remembered to keep her calendar tweety tweety notes..

  23. Are there any nuclear power plants in the path of this destructive storm? Did the Chinese controlled port in the Bahamas get destroyed? Also, who was on the scuba boat that someone wanted to get rid of?

  24. GOD BLESS THAT BEAUTIFUL LADY .THAT RESCUE THOSE ANIMALS. SHE REALLY HAS A HEART. AND NOT THOSE OWNERS THAT LEFT THEM BEHIND.
    THAT IS BEST PART OF THE WEWS.

  25. Don't mess with Mother Nature…. Nuclear bomb a joke. People think we can pollute this earth… Don't Mess With God. We will not endure… GOD IS SIMPLY OUR CREATOR.

  26. Fkn metal Detectors in every school office buzz in by moniters my 2 sons had both. N that was 20 yrs ago n my youngest graduates this year!

  27. Chicago alone has more then 600 mass shooting every year but they refuse to talk about that right?blacks killing blacks don't matter I suppose.Not Important enough ya know I mean.Well Yea

  28. That is a terrible school. They have given in and the bad guys win. Its looks like a modern concentration camp for kids. We need gun control and moral training not lockdown training.

  29. What a Black and White dichotomy: a multi-million dollars to protect a virtually "'Whites' Only" studentry (already shielded by multi-level/ multi-dimensional socioeconomic advantages) whilst exceedingly few other socioeconomic modal cohorts will even dream of said advantages. Record levels of support funding for America's Prison-industrial complex to slake anxieties of "'White'-privileged" parents who'll likely pay legal expenses out of their annual "vacation account" to cover their children if one of them are arrested for perpetrating such massacres.

  30. Is someone trying to tell us something? Paradise is California destroyed by fire, now another Paradise destroyed by a hurricane. Are we being told we no longer are going to have a Paradise?

  31. Proverbs 3:5-6 5 “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart; lean not on your own understanding; 6 all your ways submit to Him, He will make your paths straight”
    Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

  32. 11:49 289 mass shootings this year? The national news reports mass shootings. I have not heard of a mass shooting everyday this year! Its like once a week lately but usually like once a month! Why do they say that?

  33. If you want to call yourself a true humanitarian you would get behind the idea of shipping all these stray dogs and cats the world over, to Ethiopia. Do you realize how many starving people these stray animals could feed? We are talking about a very rich source of protein here people.

  34. What a mess hurricane Dorian has made!
    That school is something else! I was thinking you're kinda putting a target on it by sharing all these security features, some evil person would want to test those features. I don't much care for the look of it but if it helps kids be more relaxed and feel safer then more power to you.
    Its sad kids have to worry about this stuff, they should be focused on being a kid in school!

    Finally that lady that saved all those dogs, wow that's a lot of dogs under foot! That's awesome she's doing that! I don't think I could leave my animals tho. That's terrible, that ppl have to leave them behind, heartbreaking too!!

    That will be interesting to see that piece on maximum security and how Lester did in there.

  35. America has gotten spiritually lost when you have stories that tell us how to protect ourselves during a school shooting. Wow. America really has fallen.
