president biden welcomes world leaders as he fends off critics at home.

4:01 am

we have team coverage on the president's race to rally nato around ukraine and unit his own political party behind his candidacy. southeast texas bruised and battered by beryl. the death toll climbing to six overnight after the category 1 storm blasted the houston area with heavy rain and catastrophic wind. over 2 million people still in the dark this morning. when power could be restored and where the remnants of the storm are heading next. alec baldwin on trial manslaughter. jury selection set to begin in just hours over the accidental killing of the cinematographer on the set of "rust". how much jail time the actor could face. fed chair jerome powell set to testify before congress as more americans reach their boiling point over prices. and they're kind of a big dill. a pickle sandwich that's driving the internet wild and drawing huge crowds at the store.

4:02 am

it's tuesday, july 9. "early today" starts right now. gra glad you're up early with me. big stakes in d.c. this morning, as the latest nato summit is about to kick off. in addition to member states, partner nations from the asia pacific will also attend, as will ukraine. a topic for the summit will be ukraine's bridge to membership in the alliance, something fiercely opposed by russian president putin. for the latest, let's go to claudio lavanga. what's wh what's on the agenda for the summit this week? >> reporter: atop of the agenda will be ukraine. as you mentioned, president biden and the rest of the nato leaders will be talking about a new series of measures that will help to repel the attacks by russia. among those, according to white house officials who spoke before the meeting is possibly the

4:03 am

announcement of a new air defense system that will allow ukraine to shoot down russian missiles and drones. another topic of discussion as you mentioned, will probably be the possibility of ukraine to join nato in the future. now, all of this is happening as russia is stepping up its war against ukraine. a new wave of attacks in the last 24 hours. at least 41 people dead. and one of the targets, it turns out, was a children's hospital, an attack that president zelenskyy of ukraine called savagery. now right now, all the leaders in nato agree and are united in their support to ukraine, but perhaps the meeting will be overshadowed by the possibility, the real possibility that by this time next year, the president of the united states could be donald trump. and, as we all know, because he said it before many times, he's no support of neither nato nor ukraine. >> claudio, thank you.

4:04 am

as president biden prepares to host those world leaders today, his health is still under intense scrutiny. overnight, the white house releasing a letter from the president's doctor. the letter says the president has not seen a neurologist outside his routine physicals. nbc's brie jackson joins us now from d.c. and brie, this letter directly addresses questions about a specialist that had visited the white house multiple times. >> reporter: that's right, frances. good morning. nbc news confirmed reporting from "the new york post" that visitor logs showed a parkinson's expert visited the white house at least eight times over eight months. in the new letter, president biden's doctor explained that this specialist has been a consultant for the white house for more than a decade and that he only examined mr. biden only during his annual physicals. the last one was in february, and the president showed no signs of any nur hoeurological disorder. nine democrats have called on mr. biden to bow out of this election.

4:05 am

the president called into "morning joe" and had this message for his doubters. >> i'm getting so frustrated by the elites. now i'm not talking about you guys, but by the elites in the party, who they know so much more. any of these guys don't think i should run, run against me. go, announce for president. challenge me at the convention. >> reporter: and former president trump spoke last night in his first tv interview since the debate, calling in to fox news and saying that he expects president biden to stay in the race. >> it looks to me like he may very well stay in. he's got an ego. and he doesn't want to quit. he doesn't want to do that. it just looks to me like that's what he wants. >> reporter: and the republican convention is just one week away, and mr. trump said he'd like to announce his running mate there, but said that news will probably come a little before. frances? >> brie jackson, thank you.

4:06 am

chuck schumer says he is considering a new bill to counter last week's sweeping supreme court immunity ruling for former president trump. the top democrat said the six conservative justices have placed, quote, a crown on donald trump's head with the ruling. the outline of the bill is unclear, and it would face an uphill battle in the senate. democrats have a narrow majority and would need unlikely republican votes to pass the bill. actor jay johnston has pleaded guilty for his part in the january 6 attack. the fbi alleged that he was seen on video handing a stolen police shield to other rioters. johnson will be sentenced in october and faces up to five years in prison. the alec baldwin trial begins today in santa fe, new mexico nearly three years after the actor shot and killed hed ha

4:07 am

muchance. t halyna hutchins. baldwin denies pulling the trigger, saying the gun malfunctioned and went off in his hand. >> the trigger, i didn't pull the trigger. i feel that, that someone is responsible for what happenedle ahappened, and i can't say who that is, but it's not me. >> he is charged with involuntary manslaughter and could face 18 months in prison. now to texas where hurricane beryl slammed into the gulf coast of texas early monday as a category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. at least six people with killed there, raising the death toll to 15. >> do not take your safety for granted. we still have power lines down. there are over 50 roads that are covered with water. some of them are impassable.

4:08 am

>> more than 2.3 million remain in the dark this morning. down from nearly 3 million right after the storm. houston's primary electricity provider, centerpoint energy hopes to restore power to 1 million customers by the end of the day wednesday. our dfw station has more. >> reporter: the howling wind and blinding downpours kept those near the northeast texas coast wide awake throughout the early hours. >> the house is arockin'. sure, you're going, oh, god, please. >> reporter: beach side homeowners like jody purdue decided to stay put. >> there's a lot more damage this time. >> reporter: some homes withstood the power of hurricane beryl. others were nearly wiped out. >> we've seen those things forever. >> reporter: no one was home at the time as the majority, like austin campbell, heeded the red

4:10 am

angie lassman is tracking that storm for us. >> it's been nearly two weeks that we have been watching beryl from birth to now we've seen it make three landfalls, and we're finally going to get rid of this system into tomorrow. but we've still got to deal with what's left over and impacting folks specifically where we have plenty of flood alerts. these were just expanded. from detroit to little rock. it lifts to the north. we will see the threat of flooding through the day, and eventually as we get into tomorrow, much of the rain works still across parts of the great lakes and new england will get into the action too. we have a chance for severe storms, including the threat for tornados for 5 million people, including paducah. that's something we'll watch through this evening. we've also got the heat to talk about. 138 million people under these alerts. heat and humidity across parts of the gulf coast, feeling like triple digits in a lot of spots,

4:11 am

but the actual temperatures headed to the triple digits out west. no relief in sight at this time. tomorrow, las vegas is expected to hit 118. that would beat th wichita. low 90s in dallas with full sunshine. atlanta ends up at 93 degrees. thunderstorms in the forecast from tampa to orlando. back to you. >> thank you, angie. 13 young hikers who went missing in the tahoe national forest are safe this morning after narrowly escaping a fast-moving wufrildfire. the placer county helicopter spotted them yesterday, and a rescue team was able to lead the group to safety. up next, big change and
