Good afternoon, I hope you are having a good Friday.
On Nightly News tonight we'll be reporting on an American connection to at least two of the suspects in the Glasgow terror bombing attempt. We now know the suspects made inquiries within the last year to a group that helps foreign physicians come to the United States to practice medicine. Our senior investigative correspondent Lisa Meyers will have that, plus new video of one of the suspects being wrestled away from the burning car in the immediate aftermath of the Scotland attack.
Mark Potter is covering the storm clouds gathering within the National Hurricane Center over that agency's new director. Some of the senior forecasters are demanding his removal, and Mark will explain to us what that's all about.
The American West is searing again today under dangerously hot conditions, and our George Lewis will tell us how it's affecting places that don't normally see triple-digit temperatures.
Also tonight a look at the nation's looming shortage of nurses, the growing population of the so-called "super-rich," and the "toys" that money is buying them, plus a great story about an investment banker who threw it all in to to teach prison inmates how to put their skills to use making an honest living.
Thanks for checking-in. I hope you'll join us for NBC Nightly News.
