5:01 pm
meetings and phone calls, i'm convinced there were financial entanglements. let's wait to see what it was called. i'm convinced there was something going on. >> we talked for about 40 minutes, my full interview with her coming up. we begin with florida in a tragedy that has increased the death told from hurricane irma and its aftermath. at least eight residence in a home in florida at a nursing home are dead. the nursing home confirmed there was no power. a hospital was 50 feet away. now tonight there was heart break, outrage and questions. elizabeth comey joins me now. how did this happen? >> reporter: anderson as you said there are so many questions here tonight in hollywood, florida. how was this allowed to go on for so long? the call for help came in at 3:00 wednesday morning, an
5:02 pm
elderly resident at the florida nursing home having heart attack. >> as we arrived we saw there was a number of people in rep story distress. >> three people found dead in the nursing home, firefighter mo five more died after they were evacuated to a hospital. the cause of death still under investigation. potential ac units were being used but the stipulafacility wa excessively hot according to authorities. >> once we determined that the facilities were extremely hot we made the decision to evacuate all the patient. >> reporter: this blue tent directed to evacuating residence, 158 patients some critically in need of care. they were transported to local hospitals. >> most of the patience have been treated for respiratory
5:03 pm
distress. >> reporter: police declining to say how hot it was in the nursing home. in a statement fa stipulate administration -- our hearts go out to family and friends affected. elected financials asking questions. >> people are just absolutely shocked that someone in a staff would not know enough that a frail elderly person is dying of heat exhaustion, and would at least know to dial 911. this is what is inexcusable. >> reporter: the building now sealed off as police conduct a criminal investigation inside. >> it's a sad event. as a precautionary measure we've assigned police officers to go check all the other 42 assisted
5:04 pm
living facilities and nursing homes throughout thesy to make sure they're in stuff care of the elderly. >> reporter: approximately 150 nursing homes in florida still don't have power restored. most of them relying on generators to meet the needs of the residence if their care. >> elizabeth i understand you're getting information as to when this nursing home lost power. >> reporter: is that right. a statement put out that an september 10th the air went out. also another piece of information there's now a monitor yum accepting new patients. this facility can't take in any more patients. anderson. >> has this facility has problems in the past, do we know? >> reporter: we looked at inspection reports and we did find a list of problems. in the last couple of years they found a temporary generator hasn't been replaced and there was no plans to get a permanent one. the alarm on the generator
5:05 pm
wasn't being properly maintained so it could alarm the generator wasn't working so the staff wouldn't know. also problems with proper sanitation. one inspection found for a small number of patients looked at a medication error rate at 25%. all the problems weren't associated with what happened at the facility but it tells you something about their facility. all the problems were corrected. >> joining me now from ft. lauderdale are jeffrey and stacey nova. jeff's mother died at that facility. jeff i'm so sorry for your loss. when and how did you find out that she had passed away? >> this morning i received a phone call, believe it or not from the sunsetler reporter that had asked me to give a biology if i of my mother. not knowing what had transpired
5:06 pm
i kept asking what is this regarding. she said your mother has passed away. i said where did you get my number, i'm not sure how this happened, we had no way of hearing the information as this being broadcast. she said a woman at the nursing home had given my name and number with her. she wanted an interview with at this time around 11:30 this morning. >> you're saying no one from the nursing home called you or anyone in your family to notify you there was a problem there? >> no, they hasn't spoke to me. i did receive a call at 3:30 in the afternoon telling me that they evacuating the facility and my mother passed away. she was a casualty to the events in the morning and she was vague and unclear. it was just an upsetting phone call, not one encouraging to hear about anything. the hospital though and the people i spoke with they were
5:07 pm
incredibly supportive and genuine in offering their council. >> stacey, i'm starting to dwell on this but i find it stunning that someone in this numbering home who works there would give you and jeff's name and number to a reporter but not have the decency to actually contact you. >> no, they didn't contact him till today. in fact hollywood police contacted us before that and we had to go down to the hospital and be notified in person, even before the nursing home contacted us. >> stacey, had your family had any issues previously with this nursing home or with the staff? >> i'll let jeff answer that. >> jeff. >> you know, my mom's been there for a good number of years, eight years. with that i've gone through the trials of staff changing and communication issues. they are difficult to get on the
5:08 pm
phone at sometimes. they recognize there's always been an issue with the nighttime staff with the phone being answered and communication in that respect. so, i did find it that and terribly odd that when sunday came and i couldn't get someone to answer the phone that there was a problem. and i tried over those couple of days but it just didn't dawn on me there was an issue. and without communication i was out of the loop. as far as pass problems it's just communication issues. the staff has never been in any way disrespectful to me or my mom but it was always a challenge to get them to give me any input when there were things that came up witness her care over the period of years since she's been there. >> jeff, if you would tell us a little bit about your mom. what kind of woman was she, what kind of mom was she? >> she's -- she's just another person you'd see walking down the street.
5:09 pm
she's an american that loved where she lived, she enjoyed her family. she had a medical event that unfortunately left her where she needed care in a nursing home. it's surreal that i'm sitting here where i was one watching these commentaries over the years, now, it's my mom that is an unfortunate casualty to the lack of care that i think occurred to the fact that there was a hospital. there was literally help a feet away. just events that was hard to come with. my mom was a really good person. >> i would imagine that having known there was a hospital 50 feet away was probably a source of comfort for both of you over the years to know that the hospital was so close by. >> that was one of the reasons why she remained there. she needed care. if there was a need for further care it was literally feet away. and they'd used it before, she has been there. she had friends in the area
5:10 pm
coming to see her after this number of years. and it fit the things she needed which is the engagement of friends and having medical help if needed. we used that as the background to why we kept her there. >> jeff and stacey, i really -- i don't know what to say other than i'm so sorry for your loss and all the families who are suffering tonight. and obvious we'll continue to look for answers on how this could have happened, because it seems like they were without the main air-conditioning for days according to the reporting. we'll keep in touch with you jeff and stacey. thank so much i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> thank you. with millions still without power throughout florida, and it is hot there, other parts of southeast, the tragedy of that nursing home, and underscore and the task of getting the power back on. the clock and ticking. larry has more.
5:11 pm
>> last night we slept in my husband's truck. >> reporter: jessica gonzalez celebrated her 20-year-old birthday by waking up in a truck. for now this is the most comfortable place to sleep because it's just too hot in their house that's still without power. >> did you think that after the hurricane came -- >> it would be this bad, no. >> it would be this bad sleeping in the car? >> no i honestly didn't think it would be that bad. you hear a lot of, it's a category 5, or 3, but you really don't think it's going to hit at your house. >> reporter: meales are also cooked outside. >> this is just left overs that nobody ate. >> reporter: and she's not sure when the lights and air-conditioning will turn on again. >> do you think you can handle a couple more weeks of this? >> i mean it's not like we have that much of a closure. we kind of have to. >> reporter: hurricane irma delivered the worst power outage in florida's history.
5:12 pm
nighttime images show how the lights dim before and then after the storm turned its way up. at its pique, 15 million people in florida were left in the dark. some power crew workers had been employed across the state to turn the grid back on. convoys and crews cruise the road, bob hahn and tom are neighbors, they're trying to rig an electrical line into their rv to power up some refrigerators and water pumps. >> you guys are get creative here? >> you know you do what you do when you have to do it. that's all i can tell you. >> reporter: so water got inside the house? >> reporter: with no power and water caving in, bob hahn has moved their children inside their daughter's house.
5:13 pm
17 people under one roof. >> this could be reality for how long? >> i don't know. they're saying we aren't going to have power for weeks. >> during the storm a tree crashed into they're home and the rain poured inside. there's no power and no answers as to when they'll be back. >> it's just stressful. >> very. >> takes a toll i imagine? >> very much so. but you know what god is faithful he brought us this far he'll get us through. >> annette joins us. how many people are without electricity across the state and how long are they taking people it's going to be restored? i was in the neighborhood last night they were saying 22nd for that area. >> reporter: yeah that september 22nd date is floating around. as of now the state says there's still more than 3.2 million customers, that's more than 30% of the state. and anderson, as you well know and you saw what the power is out it paralyzes neighborhoods
5:14 pm
and communities. schools can't open, businesses can't reopen. >> thank you. randy has been out with a rescue team looking for survivors in the keys. this is what she's seen today. >> we're making an entry can you hear us. fire rescue can anybody hear us. >> reporter: task force two rescue in miami is are on the hundred for anyone trapped after hurricane irma. the concern at this house in round rocky, a car out front so perhaps someone is stuck inside. hear the team has to force their way inside. >> fire rescue. >> fire and rescue. >> reporter: the roof is gone but so is the family. the rescue team hopes they made it out alive. down the road, more houses to
5:15 pm
search and hopefully clear. here this house had to cut through all of this brush in the front yard here just to get inside. once they got in the front door they found an elderly woman who had ridden out the storm here. she was trapped inside, very low on supplies. they gave her water and then they marked the mailbox here, 1 l. 1 living. at one point we all come across a horrible smell, a smell anyone's whose covered a deadly hurricane knows all too well. >> hit me right away, the smell it's strong and that's kind of invick tifr of a body. >> having covered katrina i remember this smell. >> reporter: he decides to call in the the cadaver dogs. this dog is called on to search and smell the area around a handful of homes. if he smelled human remains or even remains of a dog or cat or
5:16 pm
somebody's pet he would signal but he never does. still the area isn't given an all clear. the source of this smell still a mystery. the team is concerned about this house. >> something like this is shuttered up. it's in relatively good condition. somebody could have rode the storm in there. if they don't hear us we'll make the decision whether or not to force the entry and going in. >> reporter: before going in inside they test the air with carbon monoxide. and this camera that can get into cracks and kref sis like an attic space. >> once we get in we'll minimize damage. >> fire rescue. >> fire rescue. >> anybody in here. >> reporter: in the end they don't find anyone inside.
5:17 pm
yet the disturbing smell in this neighborhood continues. >> randy joins us now. how many people -- the search teams you were with found? >> we were with that team today, a they rescued several people. a lot of them still wanted to stay in their home anderson, even though they were so allow on supplies. it's incredible to watch them work, they work this grid of the neighborhood between mile marker 20 and 30 right where irma blew through. that's the area they know was hardest hit. they're very concerned about the homes that have a car in the driveway, or the shutters closed or not boarded up. this house behind me, you can see this is not the kind of house that they would have searched. here on the water it's completely blown out, the walls are gone, it's bark in the background but there's no wall, that's the open sea behind this
5:18 pm
house. there's absolutely nothing left. the floor has dropped through and gone out to sea. the only thing left inside that house anderson, is a crock pot on the shelf and the satellite t.v. dish is still aattached to the which i amny. >> randy thanks very much. up next the struggle for survival. supplies are coming in, the problem they need more help. the u.s. virgin islands for update on the crisis. also tonight, hillary clinton on what happened in the 2016 election. her thoughts on her loss, james comey's intervention and russian interference. >> do you think this is bigger than watergate? >> i think it's probably bigger than watergate. i'm ryan and i quit smoking with chantix. everything i did circled around that cigarette when i started taking the chantix that urge just
5:19 pm
slowly diminished and it was a great and empowering feeling. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. i don't even think about cigarettes anymore. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. many insurance plans cover chantix for a low or $0 copay.

businesses count on communication, and communication counts on centurylink. across the krar caribbean there's sense of abandonment along with looting. >> reporter: across the caribbean what used to be paradise now being described as hell. one week later after hurricane irma came on shore there's a site for survival. you listen to the radio, you call but nobody comes says this
5:23 pm
dan ish resident of st. martin. there's little food and clean water is scarce. irma, barbuda. >> that sound was all encompassing and it really became at one point a question of whether we would live to see through it. >> reporter: now both islands look uninhabitable. the french and dutch island of st. martin took a direct hit from irma, down power line snake through ton of rubble that used to be home and resorts. thousands of u.s. residence have been shuttled out on military cargo planes. french president emmanuel macron continues to visit the area.

5:25 pm
relief as we said is trickling in. the need is great. it's been nearly a week since irma hit in the virgin islands. is there a reason why it's taken so long to get help there? >> reporter: anderson, i'm having trouble with communications but i do hear you. here in st. croix which is about 30 miles from the virg st. on, it's lush barely touched with wind. and then you get to st. john, every single leaf have been
5:26 pm
struck from that island. people have been living under tarps and they were asking when is fema going to come with more tarps. also we saw power lines down and so much destruction, there's a thought it may take up to six months before anything gets anywhere near back to normal. >> what struck you most when you got to the island? >> you know what i think, when you walk in as the boat drops you off on the dock, people there hugged us, they were so happy to see somebody and they wanted everyone to understand what has happened to st. john. i think the general thought though is that st. john will never be the same, some people will not be able to rebuild, some have they're entire life, sort of savings into those homes that they built there. there were also a lot of donkeys sort of walking around, and people saying hey t donkeys also need food. this is definitely a community that comes together but
5:27 pm
anderson, it definitely needs help and more help. it was hard to watch because there wasn't a huge relief effort yet. six days in there wasn't a massive relief effort. what they're getting is a trickle instead of a flood. >> u.s. virgin island. coming up footprint tnext t house double lg down. and my one on one interview with hillary clinton. she's pointing out even though she lost the electoral college he won the popular vote. i helped create the biggest drug cartel this world has ever seen. no mas. no mas.

5:35 pm
were created on an fbi commuter while he was the director. he claims they were private property but they clearly followed the protocol of an fish fbi document, leaking fbi memos on a -- violates federal laws including a privacy act, standard fbi agreement and disclosure agreement all personnel must sign. i think that's clean and clear that that would be a violation. >> now, the fbi director at the time, james comey said he did not violate any law, he was simply writing memos. anderson, as you can tell she was reading from a document in front of her, anderson, this is all part of the white house effort to undermine, undercut this entire russian investigation. this is the third day in a row she's raised serious questions about the former fbi director fired in may by this president. >> and democratic leaders, chuck schumer and nancy possession
5:36 pm
loes says they're at the white house having dinner when the president. what are they discussing do we know? >> this is the second time the president has extended invitation to democrats. you can see behind me there, at issue is a draemers and daca administration, the president hopes to strike a deal with them. it's a change in strategy from this president. >> appreciate you being there thank you. james comey also came up today in my interview with hillary clinton. what she thinks about the decision to reannounce the investigation being reopened. plus what it was like for her to go to the inauguration of president trump and much more. her interview ahead. and it really shows. we've got auto insurance, homeowners insurance.

. well, it's been nearly a year since hillary clinton lost the e election. her defeat in president trump shook the outcome of this country. in the months since a lot of people have spent time trying to figure out what happened. hillary clinton hasn't spoken publicly enough since that loss. she's written a book. she is speaking out and in a less guarded way as shoos used to doing in public. i sat down with her with an interview that lasted nearly 40 minutes. before we begin i want to give you a sense of what she's been up to since she's lost. ♪ >> hillary clinton had spent most of her adult life in the public eye. >> last night i con graduated donald trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country. >> her uneffected defeat left her schedule empty. days after the election she was spotted hiking in the woods and
5:40 pm
her husband and dogs. this mother and pababy daughter took a selfie. having breakfast alone in an restaurant in upscale new york. in september clinton was back in washington, her first public remarks since her defeat a month before. >> after a few weeks of taking selfies in the woods, i thought td be a good idea to come out. >> she stayed silent at her next public appearance which was by her own account, painful. after that both clintons seemed to take time to enjoy themselves. they were spotted at broadway shows on a number of occasions. >> there is no place i'd rather be here with you other than the white house. >> slowly hillary clinton began
5:41 pm
to speak out in public again. >> i take absolute personal responsible, i was the candidate. >> hillary clinton has had ten months to deflect on her defeat and next steps. >> things didn't exactly go the way i planned. but you know what, i'm doing okay. long walks in the woods. organizing my closets, right. i won't lie, chardonnay helped a little too. >> this book is airing out a lot of things, but you come across as less guarded, is that hard for you? does it feel good to do it? >> it really does, anderson. i write in the back about how for so much of my time in public life i felt like i was on this high wire with no net. i was trying to balance so many different competing concerns.
5:42 pm
and i wanted to write a book that would be as candid, take people behind the scenes as i could, share what went on on the road. but also to tackle the hard questions, like what happened in the campaign, what were the mistakes i made which i talk about, and what else happened. and particularly with an eye to understanding what we need to know so it doesn't happen again. >> one of thing you write about is the inauguration. i want to take you back to that day. you're standing inside the capital waiting to go out on the platform with former president clinton. what was beginning through your mind? >> it was such a surreal moment. usually a candidate who doesn't win the election without some other position wouldn't go. but as a former first lady, you know, my husband and i go to inaugurations, it's part of the
5:43 pm
way we felon strazplon strait c of government. i debated whether i could do it or not -- >> you actually called up -- >> our offices were both the carters and both bushes and the other bush couldn't come because of ill health. both laura, george was going to go, and bill and i said we got to do this. i can't tell you i was looking forward to it. as we were standing inside the door of the capital before you descend the steps to go out to the platform, i was thinking of what it was like when bill won and what it was like when i was there in 2001. i was a newly elected senator, vice president gore had lost. coming back when president obama was inaugurated. there were so many memories running through my mind and i did not know what to expect. i write in the book about how
5:44 pm
really strange it was to sit there and listen to the kind of speech that was so devicive, the rhetoric was hot, i call it a cry from the white nationalist gut. instead of taking the moment in saying, you know what i want to be the president for everybody. he didn't win the popular vote, he concepted through electoral college, he had a chance to fill the role and that didn't happen that day. >> you wrote in the book that you were wishing you were anyone else but there. >> anyone elsewhere, baa lee maybe. >> do you regret not going to ball lee instead? >> no. i knew i lady had to go. i quickly add the next day was great. the women march filled and the history really lifted my spirits. >> you also write in the book that george w. bush reportedly
5:45 pm
said after the inauguration, that was some weird shit. >> yes, and i said i cub agree more. >> you agree with that sentiment? >> i do. it was so strange. i mean. >> we reveal your sourcing on that, is she sitting across from me right now? >> well no, i phrased it delica delicately. i went to the lunch afterwards. >> you also said you spent a lot of time on the platform avoiding eye contact with a lot of people who had been cruel to you. >> yes. was aware there were a lot of people there who had said terrible things opinion me. i could hear some lock-her-up chants in the distance. i -- >> you're talking about jason? >> yes. i thought it was reince priebus. >> you thought jason was reince priebus? >> yes. i was leaving the platform, this
5:46 pm
ja gentlemen /* gunmen stuck -- anyway. >> you call him a want to be -- >> i did. >> are you a huge music fan? >> i am. >> does this happen to you a lot, people coming up to you who have said terrible thing opinion you not to your face and then being friendly to your face. after lunch a congressman came up to you and called you i think the anti-christ. >> he did and came up to introduce his wife to me, i've never met her before. she's now an anterior like i wrote in the book. he couldn't have been nicer coming up wanting to great me. and i said well, congressman i'm not the anti-christ. he immediately back peddled and
5:47 pm
his wife could not have been nicer. but i make the point when you are subjected to the kind of abuse that we sigh much too much in our politics right now and people feel very free to say terrible thing or from a long distance where they don't have to look you in the eye, relate to you or try to figure out where you stand on something, why you believe what you believe. and it's a real loss. as hyper partisanship and this negativity that's been over the internet -- you' >> you've also had women coming up to you with their daughter saying my daughter didn't go out to vote. >> that's happened to me, what's more common are people buttering into tears, wailing up.
5:48 pm
>> do you give the -- to women who didn't vote? >> no i don't. look, i -- when it first started happening it was so soon after the election and the election was so bizarre and close. it was hard for me to, you know comfort somebody who was coming to me and saying, oh i wish i'd done more. or i'm i didn't vote. i think this was one of the most consequential elections that we had faced in a long time. no absolution but of course i just hope people will take what happened this time seriously and being ready and willing to vote the next time. >> seems like you've been doing a lot of yoga? >> yes, i have, an alternates no trav nas central breathing. >> what is is that and dare you give me a demonstration. >> i would highly recommend it. you shut your eyes, and you hold
5:49 pm
and breathe threw through one, hold it and exhale to the other and keep going. i can only say paced on my personal experience, if your sitti sitting crossed legged on the yoga mat and you're doing it and trying to inhale, hold it and have a longer exhale it is longer lasting. i find it quite helpful. >> i wanted to talk to you by jim comey. when comey said he was reopening the investigation, you believe that is the day that effectively your campaign was over, that you lost. >> i believe based on a lot of evidence and a lot of accessments by other good answer lis, nate silver being one. yes, that was the alternative day because it stopped my momentum. i don't blame voters for what
5:50 pm
the heck was going on. you have the fbi director saying what he said. it was a terrible time to try to rake through the last days of a campaign when you had this hanging over my head and it wasn't really lifted until believing there really is something here. i knew there wasn't, and i knew that was hard to understand why he didn't just call me and others up and say can we look at this. >> you had been making progress winning back women voters. >> i'll give you an example i write about. i was leading by 26 points in the philadelphia suburbs. that could not have happened if i didn't have a lot of women and a lot of republican women, independent women saying they were going to vote for me
5:51 pm
telling pollsters that. i needed to win by 18 to counterbalance what happened in the rest of the state. i talk about this in the book because i do want to answer questions that people might have. but what i think's important is to really take a candid, hard look about what the factors were. i hope nobody ever faces what i faced with respect to that, but whoever runs again probably starting in 2018 will face russian interference, may face coordination between opposition campaigns and russians, voter expression, will face, endemic sexism and misogyny. i wrote this send up alarm signals so others can say wait a minute, these factors could effect anybody, and eventually republicans could be affected.
5:52 pm
>> some of your critics say that's an excuse that in this day in age we have an african-american president. >> there's different motivators. most people in my position who have run for office particularly at the state level, senator, governor and certainly my experiences running for president, you don't like to raise this because you don't want people to think you're making excuses, but i wrote a whole chapter about it because if we don't confront it, especially given the words and actions of our current president, it could be a big backlash that will undermine a lot of young women and their own futures. and now we know it's not just in politics, it's in silicon valley and businesses of all kinds. >> you believe there's a double standard that women -- when you
5:53 pm
were secretary of state when you were seen as working for somebody else's interests, you were very popular. polls showed -- >> 69% at the end of my tenure. >> when you were seen as working for yourself as a candidate, there's a different viewpoint. >> anderson, it's not just what i believe. as you mentioned sheryl sandburg delved into all the research we have, when a man is professional successful, he's seen as more likable. as a woman becomes more professionally successful, she's seen as less likable. when a woman advocates for someone else in my position as secretary of state for my country, for the president i was serving, people can really like you, like the job you're doing, i'm the exact same person. and all of a sudden i step into the arena. it's true even with something as mundane as if a woman goes to her employer and advocates a raise for someone else, she's
5:54 pm
seen as a great team player, leadership, and all the rest. if she advocates for herself, it be the goes against her. if a man does that, he's got guts and asks for what he wants. >> when we come back more of the interview. does clinton believe what comey window does personal? >> he's never been clear about his motivation, and what boa bothered me the most as we learned about the open fbi investigation into the trump campaign and their connections with russia, that had been going on for quite some time. the american people didn't know about it.
