tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN September 2, 2016 1:00am-2:01am PDT
breaking overnight. hurricane hermine barrels into florida. residents taking shelter. it is causing problems in the panhandle. the storm set to make its way up the east coast. millions of people in hermine's path. cnn's coverage of the storm begins now. i am miguel marquez. it is "early start." >> good morning. i'm christine romans. a lot of trouble with florida. it is friday, september 2nd. let's start with the breaking news. hurricane hermine making landfall smashing into the panhandle as a category one with
sustained winds of 80 miles an hour. heavy rain and storm surge and flooding along florida's gulf coast. this is the first hurricane to hit the state since 2005. wilma, i think. millions of residents along the storm's path are under watches and warnings. they are preparing for the worst. earlier, florida governor rick scott making clear hermine is dangerous. >> it's life threatening. we will see big storm surge. we will see rain and flooding and downed power lines. there's going to be a lot of risk if we don't do our job. everybody needs to be prepared. we have the best emergency management teams in the country at the state and local level. you have to take this seriously. >> how big is this thing? hermine? this nasa image shows it obscuring all of florida. we are covering the story the
only way cnn can. we have polo sandoval on the phone. you cannot reach your destination because of downed trees and power lines. tell us what you have seen. >> reporter: we have worked four hours to make what is usually a 25-minute drive from tallahassee to the eye of the storm made landfall a couple of hours ago. as you mentioned, it is not flood waters, but downed trees and power lines. it is preventing us and others from making our way down there. when we were in the town yesterday, the majority of the population, which is not very large, perhaps 200 to 300 have made their way out of the town already in the mandatory evacuation. one decided to hunker down and stay on the second floor of their home. that is why we are trying to make our way back there to check
with the individuals who decided to stay behind and refused to leave their homes. we have seen just a couple of first responders on the streets. we have not heard of reports about any unnecessary rescues. not yet. i should mention it is still dark and it is still early. it will be a matter of time before we see the first responders make their way on the road and the clean-up crews make their way on the roads to clear out the debris. it is not just keeping us from making that location close to some of the flooded areas, but some of the emergency responders. guys, back to you. >> we know governor rick scott is saying this is a life threatening storm. we know it was high tide in some of the communities right where the storm hit when the eye of the storm coming through there. that means there's a flooding issue here that will be the next phase of this, right? >> reporter: absolutely. that is one of the main concerns. we are told that high tide was expected about this time.
that is one of the reasons why we had to turn back after our third attempt to make it into st. marks. the water was already making it past our vehicle. that is why we had to turn around. we have seen bun person try to brave it. the main recommendation is not trying to risk it and stay at a safe distance. there is a bit of good news here so far. winds have subsided. wind speeds have subsided for now. that doesn't nomean this area i out of the woods. >> please be careful when you make the attempt again. we will talk to you soon. thanks, polo. >> the storm is far from over. where is hermine now and what more damage could it do? we have meteorologist derek van
dam in the weather center. >> take a look at this. this is from the national hurricane center. hurricane hermine made landfall at 1:30 a.m. east of st. marks where we had the phone call a moment ago. it was a minimum category one hurricane. the pressure at 982 millibars. it lowered the pressure which is a sign it strengthened right before landfall right along the big bend of florida. what is interesting to note and i am happy the storm has now made landfall. that means effectively we have come off its moisture source. this storm does not have the possibility to strengthen any further. we should see a weakening trend. you see the center of circulation to the north and east of tallahassee. i want to highlight a few things. we have ongoing flood watches across florida and georgia and south carolina. near tallahassee, where florida
state university is, a flood watch ongoing. we dropped the winds from 80 miles an hour about 30 minutes ago down to 75 miles per hour. this storm is starting to move in a northeasterly direction picking up speed. these are the latest winds from the region. take note that tallahassees d s doesn't have a wind reading. it is my guess that the meter was knocked over. we have the massive holiday weekend taking place as we speak. people trying to take advantage of the last bits of sunshine and summer. this is not the weekend to do it. we have tropical storm warnings along the east coast. that is going to be a concern from the carolinas right through the delmarva peninsula. miguel and christine. >> storms like this can be a disaster because of the churning surf and people not taking it as
seriously as they should. millions of people off work and trying to enjoy will not be sunshine and right now people try to drive through water they shouldn't. everyone hunker down and be careful. derek, thank you. florida governor putting counties under a state of emergency. joining us now is the coordinator for the gulfport is the director. thank you for joining us. we heard from the governor this is a life threatening storm. the first to make landfall since 2005. what have you been doing to prepare and do you think people are ready for this? >> i think people have gotten ready for it. it is something that we learned to live with over the years. it's not a matter of if, but when they happen. as far as preparations go, we
try to get sand bags out and available. we issued a voluntary evacuation of our coastline and provided shelter for people to go to. >> mr. guthrie, what sort of damage reports are you getting and what sort of needs are being met by the people who are affected by the storm? >> most of our damage is going to be shoreline. we actually were very fortunate the storm veered slightly to the east and we were spared the brunt of it. we were hit by the side of the storms from the tropical-storm force winds. >> i was going to say, have you had to do any water rescues? have your folks been out there? what have you seen? terms of people being about?
>> for the most part, people have not been out. >> how many people have come seeking shelter at county facilities? >> we only had about four. we are a small rural county. >> sounds like you missed the brunt of it. >> we were very fortunate. >> what are you telling next? what we often see in storms like this, mr. guthrie, the storm passes and people have a false sense of security. downed power lines and rising water. you have debris that can be dangerous. what are you telling people for the moments after the storm? >> we are encouraging people to stay out of the water to avoid rip currents. also not to cross running water if it is running across the roads. stay out of that. you never know when a culvert may be washed out. it is better just to stay in until emergency services crews
get out tomorrow and make sure that everything is clear and ready. >> are you hearing from your neighbors, counties or cities and are you sending resources there? >> we have not been requested as of yet. we do stand available to help those who may need it. >> ben guthrie, emergency management coordinator. up all night with a lot of work to do. good advice of staying out of what looks like a little bit of water. you never know if a culvert is washed out. hurricane hermine is not only trouble for florida residents, three mosquitoes testing positive for the zika virus. the first finding in the continental u.s. the samples were from miami beach. the mayor of miami beach say efforts are under way to curb mosquitoes. ten minutes past the hour. we will continue to monitor
new changes this morning at the top of the trump campaign. just two weeks after trump reshuffled his team for the second time. he is now adding a deputy campaign manager for the home stretch to november. david bosse comes to the trump campaign from the group citizens united where he is president. trump describing bossie as an old friend and quote solid and smart and knows how to win. on the campaign trail on thursday, meantime, trump showing two sides to his political personality. subdued and respectful at one and the next, fired up the base. we have the latest from ohio.
>> reporter: good morning. for donald trump, it is a tale of which donald trump will you actually see. on wednesday, you saw one version of donald trump. diplomatic and understated. a few hours later in arizona, he was on point. it happened again in ohio on thursday. in cincinnati, to the american legion, lower key. coming to wilmington, deep red trump country, the rhetoric back to balancing act from trump. trump making clear that the speech in arizona, he is not backing off most of his points. in a radio interview, he had different thoughts. >> they are softening. they will do it in a humane way. we will see it with the people in the country. i want to get the gang members out and drug pedalering out and drug dealers out. we have a lot of people in the country that you can't have. we will make a decision at a
later date once everything is stabilized. >> reporter: guys, i don't know a lot of people, republican operatives and clinton supporters who saw that speech in arizona and thought softening is the first word to come to mind. it underscores what he is trying to do as he navigates the thicket of ohio. obviously in wilmington, they were excited with the speech. in columbus and cincinnati, there are republicans who are wary of the rhetoric that he has used repeatedly. those are the people donald trump is trying to soften his image for. you have to keep the supporters, especially those here at home as well. guys, back to you. >> thanks, phil. to campaign money now. hillary clinton just finished the biggest fund raising month of the election season. clinton pulled in $143 million
in august. she started september with $68 million in the bank. her joint fund raising committee as $84 million in cash. that account allows the democratic ticket for the democratic national convention and democratic state parties at the same time. these agreements to allow donors to give hundreds of thousands of dollars. she attended 37 events in august. her best stops were a three--day tour in california with $19 million. then $21 million in the hamptons in new york. >> who knew? they are smelling possibilities. all eyes on colin kaepernick. did he repeat his national anthem protest? we will have that and the latest on hurricane hermine next.

we are keeping a sharp eye on the breaking news. hurm hurricane hermine making landfall with sustained winds with 80 miles an hour. now a category one hurricane. on top of the high winds, hermine bringing flooding and heavy rain. the florida governor declared a state of emergency and warns the storm is life threatening.
to san francisco now to where quarterback colin kaepernick last night, lots of folks waiting to see if he would sit during the national anthem before the final preseason game in san diego. as you can plainly see and hear, kaepernick did not stand. it happened to be military night. after the game, kaepernick says he believes his message is taken out of context. he plans to donate his first $1 million to groups helping advance equal opportunity. we will have more on the story next hour. it is get out of jail day for brock turner. the former stanford university swimmer set to be released after serving three months of the six months for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman.
it sparked national outrage and the california campaign to recall the judge who handed down the sentence. police are expecting protests outside the jail. hurricane hermine making landfall overnight in florida. this storm is bringing flooding and damage to the panhandle and it will move up the east coast. the state of emergency in dozens of florida counties. we will have the latest live from the gulf and what this means further up the coast for the weekend. next.
cnn has full coverage of the storm. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm miguel marquez. breaking news. hurricane hermine making landfall. smashing into the florida panhandle as a category one packing sustained winds of 75 to 80 miles an hour. bringing heavy rain and high storm surge and extensive flooding along the florida gulf coast. millions of residents along the storm's path up to the carolinas under watches and warnings and preparing for the worst. earlier, florida governor rick scott making clear hermine is dangerous. >> it's life threatening. we will see big storm surge. we will see a lot of rain. we will see flooding. we will see downed power lines. there will be a lot of risk if we don't do our job. everybody needs to be prepared. we are blessed we have the best emergency management teams in the country at the state and local level.
we have a great national guard. you have to take this seriously. >> how big is this storm? this nasa image shows it obscuring almost all of florida. we are covering the storm only the way cnn can beginning with polo sandoval. polo, i know you have had trouble getting to the live scene. how powerful was the storm? >> reporter: not only have we seen significant flooding, but the images speak for themselves. we have seen a tremendous amount of debris. this is why it has taken us two and a half hours to make what should be a 20-minute drive. if you are able to see where i'm pointing a flashlight, you can see the lines that are tangled in the debris. some of them are cable lines, but the concern is they could be high voltage lines. that is why people are encouraged to stay indoors.
we are not seeing a lot of people on the streets here. we are just south of the capital of tallahassee. as you mentioned, north of st. barts. th marks. we know people decided to hunker down and ride out the storm in their homes despite the orders to evacuate. i spoke to a woman who owns a grocery store a mile down the road from where i'm standing who said she rode out the storm 11 years ago and she planned to do it again. that is the concern right now for authorities. as soon as conditions can improve, which there is some sign that could be happening here, they will be able to make their way to the roads and clear the roads and get help in and out if that is necessary. i should point out at this particular point, we have not heard there has been a need for high water rescues. >> that is good, polo.
it is interesting, the position you are in right now is literally the morning after the landfall. trying to figure out the damage and being careful. there could be high water. there could be obstructions below the high water. remember for the folks who are in georgia and carolinas. they haven't seen this hit yet. i think that is what is so important for people not to be too complacent. tell us a little bit about what authorities are saying for those waiting for the storm. >> reporter: right. forecasters say this will eventually begin to lose strength as it hits ground now it has made landfall. it is important to point out the winds. 75-mile-an-hour winds is enough as you see to cause damage. this is what officials want the rest of the country to know. the effects from the storm. there is still the potential for
flooding and also the potential for debris and that's also including power outages. 70,000 people are waking up in the dark this morning, including ourselves when we hit the road during the early morning. our hotel was using glow sticks in the hallways in and out of the lobby. that is the punch this storm packs as a category one. you heard officials call this a life threatening storm. authorities still need to make their way through the debris to the areas to check up on. >> and no reports of injuries. are you hearing of the similar conditions to where you are with the heavy damage across the wide swath of that part of florida? >> reporter: right. we understand much of the damage from where we are standing would be caused by flooding. there is one gentleman that decided to brave the flood water covered roadways and went around
the debris and another portion of the area here and said that st. marks is under 3 to 4 feet of water, at least part of that town itself. that is why we want to get a closer look of the damage and so do authorities to gauge and tell with more certainty how much damage was left behind by the storm. we should remember that it has been about 11 years before folks here had to face a situation like this. for some, this is their first time. for others, they survived 11 years ago and they said the storm would not chase them out of their homes. >> so eerie, the sounds, after the storm passes. >> i think those are frogs. >> reporter: frogs and crickets and you also hear some of the limbs rustling around. that is the reason why we have to keep an eye on what is on the ground and we have to keep an eye on what is happening above us. it is hard to see.
there are tree lines on both sides of the road here. there is also both power lines and cable lines also there. this is really just a small taste of what you will find in and around the st. marks area and what you see here and a mile away from here. potentially as the storm continues to move. >> and it gets hot and muggy. >> eerie. >> thanks so much. thanks so much. this storm is headed north now. north/northeast. what more damage could it do? meteorologist derek van dam is in the weather center. >> it is about where it is going and what damage it has done. good morning, christine. good morning to the viewers. look at rainfall totals in and around the florida area. this is all from hurricane hermine. over 22 inches of rain in the pinellas county region. unbelievable rain totals.
the storm surge threat is starting starting to diminish. high tide was about an hour ago. roughly 90% of fatalities during a tropical system occur because of some sort of water event. not the strong winds. the flash flooding and coastal storm surge and those are the concerns that we have going forward for a few different locations. what i want to show you is the eyewall has made landfall. we know it passed over the st. marks region about 1:30 this morning local time. the good news is it has closed off the moisture source which is the gulf of mexico. we should expect the storm to continue the weakening phase as it goes forward. that doesn't diminish the threat. you see the watch box we have highlighted across florida and georgia and portions of south carolina. that is a tornado watch. that will continue through 8:00 a.m. the shading of green along the
coast. that is a flash flood watch because of the impressive rainfall totals you saw a moment ago. there is more rain anticipated across the region. here is the latest from the national hurricane center. 75-mile-an-hour winds. officially a category one hurricane. it is trucking to the northeast at 14 miles an hour. this is starting to pick up speed. look at the wind speeds from the valdosta region. tallahassee doesn't have a reading because likely that anemometer was toppled over in the higher wind gusts. the concerns going forward, miguel, christine, flash flooding and risk of tornadoes. we have a lot of pine trees that could topple over going forward. >> i don't want to look too far ahead here. i know a disaster is happening right now in that part of the country. we know the warnings go up to southern jersey. at what point do other highly populated areas see a lot of
rain or churning surf or dangerous conditions? >> check this out, christine. this is the path of uncertainty. the national hurricane center identifies what we expect this storm to do over the next 24 to 48 hours. notice how it moves along the mid-atlantic states as we head to the early weekend. then reenters the atlantic ocean. another moisture source similar to the gulf of mexico. will it happen into the warmer waters and atlantic? only time will tell. locations from the cape hatteras region through washington as well as new york city need to monitor this very closely because obviously this is coinciding with the holiday weekend and everybody trying to squeeze out the last bits of summer. probably not the best weekend. >> derek, when it makes the turn back to the atlantic, it looks like it is fielder's choice. it could go back to land? >> there is a reason for that. it will stall out over that the particular region. the steering winds will not be
strong enough to kick the post tropical storm out into the atlantic ocean. we don't expect a lot of movement monday into tuesday of next week. if it sits and churns across the atlantic, it can gain more energy and reform into a strong tropical storm or hurricane. time will tell. something we need to monitor closely. >> the clone of uncertainty. >> the cone of uncertainty. that's my life. thanks, derek. florida governor rick scott putting counties under a state of emergency. we spoke with the emergency manager ben guthrie. we asked him if residents took the precautions ahead of hermine. >> i think people have gotten ready for it. it is something we learned to live with over the years. it is not a matter of if, but when they happen. as far as preparations go, we
try to get sand bags out and make them available to residents. we issued a voluntary evacuation of our coastline and provided shelter for people to go. >> mr. guthrie, what sort of damage reports are you getting and what needs are being met by those people who are affected by the storm? >> most of our damage is going to be shoreline. we actually were very fortunate the storm veered slightly to the east and we were spared the brunt of it. we were hit by some of the side of the storms from the tropical-storm force winds. >> i was going to say have you had to do any water rescues? what have you seen in terms of people on the streets or people trying to move about? >> for the most part, our people have stayed in.
that is something else we encouraged not to get out into it. >> and how many people have you had come seeking shelter at county facilities? >> we only had about four. we are a small rural county in north florida. >> it sounds like you missed the brunt of it. >> we did. we were very fortunate. >> at this point, what are you telling folks? we see in storms like this, mr. guthrie, the storm passes and people have a false sense of security. downed power lines and rising water. you have debris that can be dangerous. what are you telling people for moments after the storm? >> we are encouraging people to stay out of the water for fear of rip current and not to cross running water if it is across the road. you never know when a culvert may be washed out. it is better to stay in at least
until emergency services crews get out tomorrow and make sure that everything is clear and ready. >> are you hearing from your neighbors? counties or other cities? are you sending resources there? >> we have not been requested as of yet. we do stand available to help those who might need it. >> hermine not the only trouble for florida. three mosquitoes samples testing positive for the zika virus. the first find in the continental u.s. they were from miami beach. previously identified as an area of local transmission. the mayor of miami beach said efforts are under way to curb mosquitoes. time for an early start on your money. the jobs report set to be released at 8:30 a.m. according to the survey of economists, 175,000 new jobs. that would be down from july
which was strong of 255,000. the jobless rate is expected to tick down to 4.8% and wage growth is expected to tick to 2.5%. why do i say this is the biggest report of the year? it carries more weight. the fed reserve will watch the numbers in two weeks. strong job gains could raise the likelihood of a rate hike. hillary clinton will li likely praise a good jobs report. donald trump will say he doesn't believe the unemployment rate is 4.8%. he has used a lot of depression-era numbers. >> a lot of under-employment. >> it has been going down. it is called the u-6. it is a geek term. >> which you are. >> thank you. that is trending down. part-time workers. watching all of those factors to see for the nuances.
>> the recovery after 2008. the banking -- fascinating to watch. we will monitor hurricane hermine all morning. also ahead for the second day in a row, we see two different sides of donald trump. an update on the campaign coming up next. and a programming note on monday. two special reports on both nominees. join us for "unfinished business, the essential hillary clinton" monday night at 8:00 p.m. followed by "all business, the essential donald trump" at 10:00. comfort food...

cincinnati, there are real republicans who are very wary of the candidacy that donald trump has had up to this point and the rhetoric he used repeatedly. those are the people they are trying to soften his image for. you have keep the supporters at home as well. >> threading the needle. thank you for that, phil. an explosion on the launch pad at cape canaveral, florida. what happened and why facebook ceo mark zuckerberg is so upset about it. and just in. this storm downgraded minutes ago to a tropical storm. you have the georgia governor declaring a state of emergency because this is still powerful and headed to georgia.
