tv CNN Tonight With Don Lemon CNN September 6, 2017 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT
the breaking news tonight hurricane irma, one of the strongest stofrms ever recorded in the atlantic after smashing through the caribbean, the storm now taking aim at florida. tom sader is in the weather center for us. category 5 hurricane irma could effect up to 37 million people and being described as once in a generation hurricane if it comes ashore. where is it now and where is it
heading? >> the newest advisory has been issued by the national hurricane center. we're at hour 39 this has been containing the strength of a category 5. we have been taught for years hurricanes cannot sustain this kind of magnitude and strength after hour after hour after and yet here it is, we're going to into hour 40. the eye continues to be well defined. it's been undergoing restructuring and it looks like we got good news without a major land fall until we see storm surge in the turks & caicos. really sparing the northern coast. four or five foot storm surge because it was undergoing wall replacement and maybe it would drop just a little bit in the wind category but it has not.
the track has not changed much although last night it moved 60 miles eastward and maybe another 20 to 30 more have been added on. we still have a cone of uncertainty that does head to the west coast of florida. but anyone from the keys up towards wilmington need to be aware of this. if you planning your evacuation this is when tropical storm winds move into your area. think two days ahead, don. >> what about the winds in the storm surge. what's expected? >> if you take a look at the path and when we talk about these models we're going to be looking at dangerous winds pretty much around the eye and extending outward. so they're going to fan into the bahamas and felt in the dominican republic and haiti. but this reminds me of matthew last year. this stayed off the coast by about 30 miles and that's the difference between light/moderate damage and
catastrophic damage. although we saw significant damage along the coast of florida. that was a big problem. we lost scores of people. over 20 i believe in the carolinas. we're looking aut 15 to 20 foot storm surge, turks & caicos. that is much higher than they had in parts of puerto rico. that will be moving in towards the southeastern u.s. in the next couple of days. >> we'll check back in with tom if need be. i want to get to laila santiago. hello to you. hurricane irma is battering the caribbean. you're in san juan for us. what are you experiencing? >> reporter: things continue to calm down on the northern coast of puerto rico and a lot of people feeling lucky. i actually spoke to a gentleman
from fema. and it's still some problems that will come as a result, fallen trees that will need to be taken care of and that will be a big one, don because it's not just three days, we're talking possibly weeks or months and there could be the flooding that comes as a result of this already on the eastern part of the island. they are talking about the damage this has caused and rescue crews have had had to go in to get dozens of people to save them really from flooding in homes as well as cars and then there's something else worth mentioning. the federal government, the u.s. federal government has declared not only a state of emergency but a health care emergency. so they'll be getting more
resources to help out on that end as well, don. >> all right, thank you. we appreciate that. i want to get to miguel marquez right now. so talk to me about what's going on, the gas shortages, the water. what's up? >> reporter: you can measure the concern people have by those shortages. water in particular and gas also. water -- whether we went to a wall greens or target or a public supermarket, there was no water be to had. they're getting more in the next day or two. walmart in particular is drawing as far away as inive nv to get water to this place. this is a guestimation that has been very, very busy all day long. i can see another gas tanker getting ready to come in.
the lines for this gas station have prity much stayed consistent throughout the day. one hour right now. the other thing i can show you. we are on u.s. 1. the traffic on the far side, that's coming from the south going north as this storm gets closer, clearly more and more people will start to evacuate. >> miguel, thank you very much. i want to bring now the mayor of miami beach. under mandatory evacuation starting tomorrow at noon. how are you making sure everyone gets out and particularly seniors? >> for the last couple of days since yesterday i've been telling the people of miami beach especially the residents and visitors time to leave. get out and a lot have been listening and increase the flow as much as possible. starting tomorrow we're going to be that much more aggressive. whether you're a resident or a
visitor, you need to get out, you need to be safe. you need get out of miami beach. looks like the path is very, very scary and serious. so we're getting the message out as aggressively as possible. how do they get out? what's your advice? >> first of all we issued a letter that said please leave now. what we're going to be doing will be actually having buses. they'll be picking people up, bringing them to drop off areas and the shelters. we'll also have our trolley system doing the same thing. shelters for people that have pets, people that have special needs for seniors. so we're working with a county very aggressively to coordinate this evacuation effort. >> there are no hurricane shelters in miami beach? people need move elsewhere? >> there are no shelters on
miami beach. so we need them to leave miami beach and they'll be going to shelters in dade county which has multiple shelters depending on what the specific needs of that person may be. >> we're seeing long lines for gas, water. we also saw a storm chaser somewhere in miami. gas station closed. >> no. it's happening all across the state. i understand the governor is working with the fuel companies to bring more fuel. but when it comes to water, we've been saying over and over again the good old-fashioned faucet is good. you can fill up bottles, jugs and you can get all the water you want right now. >> are you concerned booult the roads being congested? >> we know there will be traffic. we know there will be congestion and that's okay because we want the people to vacate miami
beach. we'll be working with our police department, fire department to make sure it's as orderly a transition as possible. so public transportation to reduce the amount of cars. we've opened up our garages for free to protect their cars during the storm because we could expect a storm surge of some serious flooding. >> judging from the scope and the size of this thing and the power, the intensity, is this going to be another hurricane andrew? that was a deadly category 5 that hit florida in 1992? >> i certainly hope not and we are as prepared as possible as a county and a city. but you never know. you can only prepare a certain much. and we're hoping for the best but of course we're planning for the worst. >> thank you very much. appreciate that. when we come back w the storm barrelling down -- bearing down
on florida, hospitals and nursing homes are putting their emergency plans into effect. we're going to speak to officials from some of these hospitals to see how they're prepared. ...it starts a chain reaction... ...that's heard throughout the connected business world. at&t network security helps protect business, from the largest financial markets to the smallest transactions, by sensing cyber-attacks in near real time and automatically deploying countermeasures. keeping the world of business connected and protected. that's the power of and.
fothere's a seriousy boomers virus out there that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. because it can hide in your body for years without symptoms, and it's not tested for in routine blood work. the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested. if you have hep c, it can be cured.
for us it's time to get tested. ask your healthcare provider for the simple blood test. it's the only way to know for sure. afi sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage... ...my 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily...
and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. no need with thending thcars.com app when on the lot, scan a vin to pull up all the info you need to help get the price you want. start scanning today. tonight millions of people in florida bracing for the impact of a monster storm, hurricane irma. hello to you tonight. mandatory evacuations have been issued for miami dade county. tell us what you've seen today.
>> reporter: we've travelled slightly south of miami to homestead, florida. you can see i'm in front of a mobile home park. this particular park nearly every single part of it was completely levelled in hurricane andrew. so when we came down here we met edward collins. he has packed everything he owns. he completely emptied out his mobile home, stuffed it in his car and he says he is quote beyond scared. he is driving north. he's going to get out of the state of florida. he's heading to family in virginia. but at the same time we did drive across the street 10 minutes away and met a mom who has two children, a 15 month old and a 4 month old. she says she has water, fuel, food. she wants to ride it out. she thinks she'll be fine. we're hearing many different stories as irma barrels closer. >> okay let's say she rides it out but what about the days after when people are trying to
get supplies. maybe there's no electricity and no water? >> reporter: you know there's a flor idian spirit and i've seen it heard and talked about as we've seen people sand bagging and boarding up. they have a certain resiliency and to some, like collins who packered up and left. he says they're being tone deaf to what we're trying to tell you on the news. so that is a definite question. what happens to her and her two kids when you can't drive anywhe anywhere? when you can't escape until it's too late? this is as devastating to homestead, fll fll as the models are showing. >> we'll see you soon. one of the biggest worries of courses taking care of people who need special help. wayne [ en, the chief operating
officer of baptist south florida. you over sea eight hospitals in florida. >> thank you, don. we do have eight hospitals from miami to the keys and 50 out patient centers and doctor's offices. so we're currently on normal operations. obviously things are going to change rapidly but that's how things stand as of now. >> so mercy hospital evacuating its patients tonight. will you take some of those patients in? >> mercy hospital is relatively near our facilities in miami. so we've started to receive patients from there at our baptist hospitals and south miami and probably take some into doctor's hospitals and choral gabls as well. >> when do things start to ramp up for you?
>> things have been in the keys particular the last couple of days have been very tense and difficult. we have two hospitals in the florida keys. the furthest south is in marathon fisherman's hospital. which is currently open. we moved the last patient out this morning. we intend to have it open throughout the night. we're going to close it first thing in the morning about 7:00 a.m. the staff will evacuate at that point. we'll move some of them up to mariner's hospital in key largo. key largo hospital will be open until about 7:00 p.m. we will -- we moved the last two patients out this evening to miami. and the staff will maintain the ed there until about 7:00 p.m. tomorrow night and they'll be evacuated out. >> you know these things happen
in phases, right? so what do hospitals in south florida -- what do they learn? it happens in phases. what happens after the storm? >> you're absolutely right. one of the things we have experience with are these big storms. i was the ceo of homestead hospital in hurricane andrew. a lot of our staff were veterans of that storm. so dealing with the aftermath is absolutely something that most people are not prepared for. the economy takes a hit, housing stock takes a hit. it does become difficult to operate but i think we're in as good a shape as you could be in facing down a monster storm over a big geography like this. >> thank you. best of luck. we'll check back.
okay. >> thank you, don. >> of course florida's home to many senior citizens and i want to bring in owner of easy living. you, as i understand you own a home, assisted living company for the elderly. how are you preparing tonight? >> wae've been working the last two days contacting each of our clients as well as their family members to make sure more than a plan in place, evacuation, if at all possible. be have had some families fly in and take their families back up north with them for those clients that are unable -- not so much unable to evacuate but prefer not to, we're making sure they're registered with special needs shelters and helping them pack their bags, get their medication and when we say pack your bags, you have to remember there is no bedding included in the special needs shelter. you need to bring your snacks, medications. and if you do have any
particular things like oxygen needs, you need to bring all of the apparatuses that go along with that, even though oxygen will be provided at the special needs shelter. >> are you surprised for people who don't want to go, i'm surprised. does that surprise you? >> no. it's the same battle that families go through all the time when perhaps they feel like mom or dad aren't safe at home and assisted living would be the right choice and they say i think i'll stay at home for now. we hear that even with the threat of the storm. the other thing many of our clients are living in nursing homes and we have reached out to all of our families to make sure that they understand where their loved one may be evacuated to in case the facility is in a nonevacuation zone.
one of the side effects of katrina was not being able to find loved ones. >> we were talking before we came out of the commercial break. you said this one feels different. >> it feels different because it's so big and even if we do not get that direct hit on the west coast of florida where we're located, we will feel side effects from it. we're going to be effected by wind. it does not take much rain for us to have flooding, which means what ever street you're on you may or may not be able to get out. the best thing is if you are going to stay at home and you're fragile or have issues, you need to make sure you have registered with the special needs shelter because the firefighters will come to your home and will check

ago. as i said up to 37 million people could be effected by this. a once in a generation event. do we know when it's going to come ashore and where it's heading and when it's going to come? >> i think we need maybe one or two more days to definitively nail this but i'm pretty much amazed as how the models have been handling this. they're in extraordinary agreement. the u.s. went through 12 years of a drought without a major hurricane making land fall and a major hurricane is three, four, and five. then we had had harvey. that was enough for a generation alone. harvey's problem was you could outwalk it. at least this is moving at 16. it's not about a big rain maker, it's about wintds with this system and storm surge as it approached parts of the
southeastern u.s. and florida. great news for puerto rico. got a little storm surge but most of the activity stayed off shore by about 50 miles. and the difference in the last 24 hours, a shift of about 60 miles and maybe 20 more. it's trending eastward which is good news for those wondering could this get into the gulf of mexico? and it could but that window is shutting a little bit. this is the zone of big time problems ahead. but let's not forget about evacuations. this map here pretty much shows everybody in a color coded area where the tropical storm force winds will be by that day. you do not want to wait to evacuate from miami on sunday because you'll be traveling through sunday with tropical storm force winds. again we don't have much time. if you're going to be evacuating, you should do it on friday so you can beat those winds.
the massive wind field alone would swallow all of florida with tropical storm force winds with border to border, coast to coast. trending to the east but we need another day or two to definitively say is this going to make land fall in miami or hug just along the coast like matthew did last year and plow inhad to the carolinas? >> thank you, sir. the government of puerto rico reporting significant damage. and joining me is a houston resident vacationing in puerto rico. my goodness, what timing. what was the storm like and where are you? deborah, you there? >> caller: yes, i'm here. i'm actually at the marriott hotel. we were moved down from the ninth floor to the fourth floor earlier today and we were told to come down to the lobby around 6:00 so that they could have
everybody that's in the hotel to be in one place. so it was about 60 guests at the hotel during the time of the storm. >> and what's it like right now? what are you seeing? >> i have been outside. the it streets are clear. it's no flooding and the wal greens have reopened. >> were you worried about -- did you have to evacuate? >> well, in the beginning of the storm i have an ocean view from my room and the current was really rough and the palm trees were bending and the visibility was very, very low. so yes, i was very concerned and worried. i kind of sit there and watched it until it was time to evacuate the room. >> so as i understand you're from houston and you weren't effected personally by harvey but a family member staying at your tlous, are they -- are you
in touch with them? are they concerned about you? >> oh, yes, they're very concerned because of the amount of damages that was received in the houston area behind hurricane harvey. i have actually five displaced families that are living in my home right now because harvey took theirs. >> and i also understand another one of your friends lost everything in katrina. she's with you in puerto rico. how is she dealing with this? >> she's not doing good as we are because we really go through a katrina. but she was very fearful of being here through katrina, through harvey. now irma. but when we got the text that we will be leaving on friday on time, she's happy now. >> thank you very much and be
safe, deborah adams. a houston resident vacationing in puerto rico. i want to bring you a florida keys resident and business owner and he joins me by the phone. hello to you. how are you doing? >> doing pretty good down here. we're all prepared and kind of waiting to see if it's going to keep shifting to the east or if it's going to come right up u.s. 1 and the gig scission is if you stay or you don't. >> are you going to tried out? do you know? >> we're ready to go and our plan is to leave if we have to friday morning real early but it's -- what you have to be concerned with, you don't want to leave an area like this and get caught up with it halfway up the state and sometimes the keys are the best places to be because it will veer to the east and it ends up where we have heavy winds or maybe a category
one at the worst. but a 4 or 5 a lot of my friends are leaving but there's probably as on the track it's going to take? you're going to wake up and say i better get out of here? >> all the preparation's done. everything pchs ready to go and like i said the track today veered more to the east. if tomorrow it goes to the east a little more and that eye is coming off the coast of florida, you know, for us we're better off just to stay put and a lot of people are just keeping an eye on that. you hate to evacuate, get up to a safe haven you think you're going to be okay and something goes wrong and it goes inland say jacksonville or somewhere up there and you got bigger problem. >> you were there for andrew and say you learned a lot from that.
>> we learned just how dev stating a category 5 storm can be and what wind damage truly looks like when you see it first hand. the tvs and the pictures really don't do justice until you've actually seen it in front of you and it makes you think and after you talk to enough people who say they would never go through it again, you got to take their experience and use it to your benefit in a situation like this. this is a bad storm, very powerful and it can really do a lot of damage if we were to get a direct hit. >> i'd feel better if you left. >> well, we're ready to go and if it's going to be -- i have the whole family together. >> how many people? >> three daughters and two grandchildren and my wife. so we're all geared up and loaded up if that's what we're going to do, we're ready to go. >> it will be a nice vacation at the end. take them somewhere and get out
of there. good luck to you. when we come back this monster storm taking aim at florida after slamming the caribbean. i'm going to talk to. marcopolo! marco...! polo! marco...! polo! marco...! polo! marco...! sì? polo! marco...! polo! scusa? ma io sono marco polo, ma... marco...! playing "marco polo" with marco polo? surprising. ragazzini, io sono marco polo. sì, sono qui... what's not surprising? how much money amanda and keith saved by switching to geico. ahhh... polo. marco...! polo! fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. polo! (hard exhalation) honey? can we do this tomorrow?
(grunts of effort) can we do this tomorrow? if you have heart failure symptoms, your risk of hospitalization could increase, making tomorrow uncertain. but entresto is a medicine that was proven, in the largest heart failure study ever, to help more people stay alive and out of the hospital than a leading heart failure medicine. women who are pregnant must not take entresto. it can cause harm or death to an unborn baby. don't take entresto with an ace inhibitor or aliskiren. if you've had angioedema while taking an ace or arb medicine, don't take entresto. the most serious side effects are angioedema, low blood pressure, kidney problems, or high potassium in your blood. ♪ tomorrow, tomorrow... ♪ when can we do this again, grandpa? well, how about tomorrow? ask your doctor about entresto and help make tomorrow possible.
were felt pretty well. >> i just want to play -- if we can cue up the storm hitting st. martin. in the interim i'm going to ask you you said 95% of the structures damaged. and you're looking at this video. listen to this by the way. where do you start when you look at this video? >> i think one of the first things you want to do is look that potential for moving individuals off that smaller island to the main island, which is montigo and especially out of the fact that you see jose, hurricane jose pretty much along
a similar path of irma. the first thing is let's move the individuals we can move off the island. damage as well as the severe impact. while they may be able to be occupied with the it impact on the facilities, infrastructure, utilities. that's where we would start. how long it will take -- people will be first in line. >> i spoke to someone else who toured some of the damage said people were tying themselves to their homes to stay safe. did you hear stories like that? >> no. we didn't get that particular feedback from out of the islands. we would be monitoring more
around the damage itself. the impact on whether there were people displaced and in shelters, rescue efforts, etc. but we didn't get any reports of people trying to tie themselves to the home. i know from some reports that they were good conditions in some of the islands that seem to be forcing into homes and people trying to keep the water out. and so forth. but nothing of the nature that you described. >> unbelievable. we wish you the best. executive director of the caribbean and disaster and emergency management agency. thank you so much, sir. i want to turn to national security analyst, a former homeland security official. these stories are horrific, julia. >> yes and as the previous speaker just said there's two other hurricanes behind it, at least one they're worried about is jose. i do want to put good news on
it. we're not getting the full numbers of fatalities. but at least the emergency manager said there's only been one. we judge success by casualty rates. so these are numbers that effect some of the planning that went on. when i look at whaurts rr about to happen to florida, it is the number i will be looking at as we did in houston to judge success or failures is how many lives can you protect? it's the most important thing and the most important thing that should an mate people in florida right now. i need to take this opportunity to remind people that florida -- the local florida emergency management agencies are the ones who are going to know what's important and not for you to do. so there's lots of screening on twitter and facebook about everyone needing to evacuate and rush limbaugh saying everyone is
over reacting. just listen to your local emergency management agencies. they know what to anticipate and when to anticipate. telling everyone to evacuate is not helpful in that regard. you don't want them to evacuate where the hurricane is about to hit. the coast travelled north until it hits georgia, south carolina or north carolina. how much damage could irm ara. >> we talk about in homeland security, minimizing the destruction. that's how you judge success. would this have been worse but for the planning that's in place? so we have to anticipate major damage to infrastructure, housish and other places like that. what you're trying to minimize
is the loss of life. that's why there are the directed or targeted evacuations. we're going to focus on those who are unable to move, those with disabilities. but we don't know exactly the extent of the harm. but once again let's get through the next 48 to 72 hours. then the recovery should focus of course on infrastructure and other issues like that. there's been the question of capacity to deal with. look, fema's divided into regions. fortunately to put it that way irma is hitting a different fema region than the houston. so region four and region six was houston. so that's good news from the availability of resources. people will be more rested because we worry about emergency managers and first responders being over rot by the hurricanes.
so that is some silver lining and they've been prepared, moving assets over the next 72 hours. coast guard is ready. so that's what we're doing. the government's prepositioning for what it doesn't know can happen but i come on your show often trying to minimize calm and get people to be calm about various threats out there. this one is different. maybe it's the worst or second worst or i'll let meteorologists define that. but this one, given how big it is and where it's likely to hit and the c people need to take this very seriously. this is not just hype right now. >> julia cayenne. thank you. and others say the president blindsided them.

troll farm. let's discuss this, alice stewart joins us as well, thank you for joining us. so glad to have you on, what do you make of this, michael? is it more evidence of russian meddling in the election? >> that it is, every week it seems there is more drip, drip, drip of the investigation, e-mails going back and forth. meetings that we didn't know about. attempts to contact high ranking russian officials, including apparently even the president, putin, and so this is going to be a long-term investigation. there are a lot of components to it. and at the end i think it's not going to be a good outlook for the president and a number of people around him. >> still yet to be -- it's not
finished. the investigation is still far from over. so alice, listen, donald trump jr. is set to take part in a staffing meeting. what are you expecting? >> well, hopefully we get some answers here so we can begin the process of putting this behind us. look, it's important from the administration's standpoint if they say there is no there, there, then let's get it all out there and put it behind us. i think with regard to the facebook ads i think the important thing to know is that russia has meddled in the election, that is pretty clear. we also know that adam schiff said today they used social media to also get their message out. and i think it's good that facebook came forward with information that they have. the question is knowing that they did use geo targeting to specific key battleground states, who possibly helped them? did they have information to get
to these areas, and that is the crux of this investigation. i think with regard to what facebook has to do. because did they get help from one of the campaigns? and if so was it the donald trump campaign? we don't know that. that is part of the investigation, but if that is the case then there is serious problems. but it is under investigation, and let's see where things lead. >> i want to put up this picture, let's look at this picture in the oval office today. this is the president with some of the -- what do you call them -- like crying chuck or something like that. and you can show -- every name in the book that he has called chuck. but apparently they were buddy, buddy today. nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, apparently got the deal of the century, and blindsided republicans. what did you make of this deal? >> well, great deal, from the two leaders on the democratic
side -- funding -- >> well, raising the debt ceiling. >> three ultimately very serious pieces of legislative business. getting money moving forward for the victims of harvey. continuing spending legislation as well as raising the debt ceiling. so all very serious, all very important. the issue on -- that's policy, politics, the issue of course was timing. the republicans clearly wanting to push all of that activity past the elections. democrats were not hearing it. and these are the kind of matters that really do need 60 votes. >> all right, alice, what do you think -- >> particularly, the president needs a significant legislative accomplishment and he really doesn't have that and he blames it all on speaker ryan, and mitch mcconnell, and he is saying if they can't help me out, let's see where this goes.
>> thank you very much, i'll see i right back here tomorrow. good night. ...my 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk
