"Really spared. I mean, I think the Port Arthur, Texas mayor told you all earlier this morning that they just dodged the bullet. And I've heard there's very little water. But boy, you go across the Sabine River. They're in Louisiana, and they just took a horrific pummeling. We're seeing pictures now from Lake Charles. This, you know, population 78,000 Big Petrochemical center, Big casinos, home of zydeco music. Oh, they took terrible punishment last night. Most buildings we're just not built to withstand 120 130 mile per hour winds. Whether it's residential or commercial and men, they just were pulverized over there. So you've you've done this before, John. You've covered a lot of storms and hurricanes. Now we're doing it in in a time of a global pandemic. How did that affect preparations? Well, I think that the mayors and the governors wisely decided that they couldn't use thes big, sprawling shelters where everybody's packed together in cots, and and, you know, having communal meals. And so they urged all of the evacuees to take advantage of all the hotel space and You know Shreveport in Dallas and Austin and San Antonio, and a lot of folks did, but I know that they're there were some civic centers that were opened for For shelter is in the end, but reluctantly So what now? I mean, things aren't nearly as bad as they thought they were going to be. But there still is. We noted these really horrible winds. Do we know the path of the storm? Yeah, I mean, it's heading on up into North Louisiana, and it's going to go across Arkansas. It's going to turn east over Kentucky and even into West Virginia Azzam tropical depression, so But it's it's vastly lower in its strength. Eso they'll be, you know some tropical storm force winds and a little bit of rain, but it's it's really made its mark. Um, in southwest Louisiana here and the little town of Cameron and Lake Charles. This is this is a historic storm for them. Families will talk about this for generations. I mean, it feels almost too early to talk about recovery when when the damage is still ongoing, But how? How does this area John begin to think about putting the pieces together? Right. Well, first of all, you know, there's search and rescue's this morning to see what you know if anybody's still stuck in their house, surrounded by water on then the the damage assessments. I know their power lines and trees down all over. All of these huge refineries and petrochemical plants were shut down. And so the work crews will go in there to see if they're operable. You know, we're right on interstate 10 and I can hear outside my hotel window. Folks are already Roaring down the highway. Probably coming back to see you know how their house whether the storm, so now comes a long period of of rebuilding and hoping the power comes back on soon. NPR's John Burnett. Thank you, John. You about Rachel. The speakers last night at the Republican Convention included a rising star in the party. Christy Nome is the governor of South Dakota, the home of Mount Rushmore. Her speech last night referenced Abraham Lincoln, one of the president's on the mountainside. Gnome said that in America, the people are supposed to rule themselves. Government's power at all levels is limited to the confines of our constitution, which protects our God given liberties and civil rights. We are not and will not. Be the subjects of an elite class of so called experts. We, the people are the government and governor Christie Gnome is on the line Governor. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me on the program. I appreciate it. So you mentioned so called experts at a particular moment. We're in the middle of this vast pandemic. Which experts were you thinking off? I think most of the time people turn on the news, listen to different folks giving perspectives and opinions and mistake it for actual science and data. So and then also, I think it's a good time for us to go back and re evaluate the purposes of our constitution. The personal responsibility we each have to make decisions for our own life. And some of the examples that we've seen come forward in recent months, I think have really opened up people's eyes to the abilities that they have to really exercise that type of personal responsibility. If I could just be clear here, though, we have public health experts who've been saying social distancing works masks work. That is the way to slow the spread of the Corona virus. Do you feel they're wrong? I think that we have a lot of public health experts that has given us a lot of information, and we've been recommending social distancing. We've been recommending that people wash their hands. We've also seen mixed science on this virus. In fact, what was revealed about the virus back in March when it first started to hit a lot of our states and what we know about it today. Is very different, So I think that's what's incredibly important when especially when it comes to, and a pandemic like this on a health issue is that we continue to learn and be teachable because we've seen The CDC guidance change over and over again. The W H O guidance change over and over again. Doctors give completely different perspectives on the same issue. And so that is why I think ultimately it comes down to the fact that We give people all the information we possibly can, and then we give them the opportunity to make decisions that worked best for their families. When and I guess we should note. You're correct that expert advice on things like masks has evolved as people have learned more about the virus. I think you're referring to the fact that you've been reluctant to impose mandates in your state compared to other states. I want to note one event recently, though. Governor there was a motorcycle rally giant event in Sturgis, South Dakota, thousands of people Limited, masking very little social distancing big crowds than they all went home and The Associated Press reports that health officials in eight states have traced outbreaks back to people who went there. What do you make of that? Well, we had a lot of people visit South Dakota participate in the motorcycle bike rally. That is something that they made the decision to do and have gone back home from We've hosted several large events in our state and consistently what I have told people is that if you are concerned, if you have a vulnerable condition to where you're older, or potentially have a health condition that could cause you to get very sick if you catch the virus. Please stay home. If you're fearful, No, that's that's good. This it's mostly advice you to exercise that decision making for themselves themselves. And that's what we allowed to have happened during the Sturgis bike rally as.

"Lake Charles, Louisiana. Right now, for the second night in a row police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, faced off with angry protesters and Mohr than a few rioters. That's the sound of the protest that continued in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last night over that shooting of 29 year old Jacob Blake. NBC News correspondent Ryan Burrow is with us this morning, Ryan. Good morning. Tell us what went on in Kenosha overnight. It was a second night of these demonstrations so beyond the time of the curfew that turned violent, some turn to rioting with fires being started. Some of these public vehicles, dump trucks, garbage trucks being set on fire. A CZ faras. Ah, the battle with police. Some of these people, protesters, demonstrators, Riders, whatever you want to call them throwing rocks, bottles, shooting fireworks at officers who were protecting the county courthouse. That seems to be kind of the line of defence. They've been trying to hold during all of this, while other buildings have been burned and damaged police I continue to keep their line out in front of that particular building. But there was more damage and destruction. This even being with 125 National Guard members being added to help reinforced and to help the forces the Kenosha police force in those overnight hours, We just saw the curfew lifted. It's pretty quiet right now. In the city of Kenosha, there was just a rainstorm that came through, but it's going to be hot again today. More demonstrations are expected throughout the day. Today. More protests both peaceful and perhaps turning violence as well. See if there's another curfew put into place later tonight, Ryan have we learned any more about why police open fire? We have not. We have not heard anything from authorities other than they continue a full investigation. We know that Wisconsin state authorities are the ones taking the lead in this investigation. But nothing official from Kenosha police at this point, the two officers who we see in that video who appear to be closest to Jacob Blake, what the time of the shooting have been put on administrative leave, but they have not been fired. They have not been charged with anything as of yet, and what we're hearing from Benjamin Crump, the attorney for the family of Jacob Blake. Says that these demonstrations will probably continue until there is some kind of action when it comes to these officers, whether it be firing, whether it be, uh, you know, some kind of charges brought up against them. He thinks that these demonstrations will continue not only in Kenosha but across the country. All right, Ryan, thanks for the update.
