this is cnn breaking news. >> it is a state of emergency right now on the american gulf coast from louisiana to florida. hurricane nate, a strong category one storm right now is closing in on the coast with about 90 mile-per-hour sustained winds right now. the city of new orleans is under curfew. casino resorts in mississippi closed and evacuated.
florida's governor activating the national guard and advising people in the panhandle to stock up on food, water to last several days perhaps. tom, just how powerful is hurricane nate right now? >> the latest advisory just moments ago dropped sustained winds from 90 miles per hour to 85. it's still a category one. but what's more interesting to note is it's been very difficult to see an eye on the satellite imagery so we've been looking at radar. and what they are saying right now, they believe we had a landfall near the mouth of the mississippi river. hard to see where the eye is right now even on radar because we just do not have any moisture on the western end or southwestern end of this eye. in fact, faurl right now looks like they're just getting scattered light rain. most of the precipitation is to the north. they here's a live picture of
bourbon street. light rainfall. most of the wind are to the east, not to the west. we've been hard pressed to find gale winds. now movement is north at 20. when you lose the bright colors here, ana, you're talking about a system you believe is trying to lose its punch, though we're seeing a little convex, the bright colors, in the core. it's going to be the core where we'll have the stronger winds and where we'll probably see some power outages. but it's not a broad storm right now. we're losing all the elements to the west. their big concern is lake pontchartrain. as the wind move to the coast
line, the wind will be out of the north of lake pontchartrain. so that's the concern there. other problems we're starting to see now, heavy rain out of mobile bay and a number of tornado warnings in the mobile area. they've just been allowed to lapse so that's a good news, but these bands coming in from the south will create the surge, will create the threat for more tornadoes. there will be more sirens going off and more warnings issued later on. because it's a fast moving storm, unlike harvey, rain storm totals will be kept to a minimum. there will be some ponding and flash flood concerns but it's not going to be widespread. it's a fast-moving storm that will lift quickly. some of the wind gusts can expect to be up to 50 or 60. but this is not an irma, not a
maria. anything in orj is going to be a higher risk. that is the east of the center. that's the panhandle of florida, some areas up in the northeastern parts of georgia but nothing widespread. the biggest thing mentioned is going to be that storm surge and we'll talk about that in a few minutes. >> your forecast has a little bit of good news. tom, thank you. let's go out to where hurricane nate is making itself seen and felt. ed lavandera is in mobile, rosa florence is in new orleans. derek, what is the situation in gulfport? >> good evening, ana. that's the emergency sirens going off here in biloxi. those were installed
post-katri post-katrina, meant to send the signal to those who doesn't hn' internet or tv or doesn't hear the warnings. we have land falling hurricane in the next six hours. of course we're going to sound the sirens and get the word out. if you're in susceptible low-lying areas, there's a threat and you need to get to higher ground if possible. 12 casinos along the harrison county coastline have been shut down. there's mandatory evacuations. you can see and hear the emergency sirens still ongoing. there hasn't been a real surge of weather just yet, though we do expect that.
the very compact eye is just to our west. you heard tom sater talking about the heavy winds. it puts biloxi in a precarious position for heaviest winds, potential for rain and storm surge. >> thank you. ed, you are in mobile, alabama. have you seen conditions there change yet? >> reporter: we've been watching a steady amount of rainfall. the winds have not been that intense in the early evening hours. that is expected to chang as we appear to be on the eastern edge of the storm. you've heard us report over the last few minutes that appears to be the side of the storm that will be the greatest concern. we've heard those storm sirens going off in the city of mobile a little while ago and those
tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings starting to pop up and as you push inland toward montgomery, alabama as well. as this storm continues to push north, people really need to be aware of what other kind of storms systems can pop up out of this hurricane as it moves to the north and comes on shore. it doesn't mean that the store isn't as strong as a maria or irma or harvey that cannot spawn some kind of dangerous weather situations in the overnight hour. another question here is high tide will be close to around 1:00 this morning. that can complicate things depending on how severe the storage such end up being. with the high tide coinciding with the same time that the brunt of the storm is coming onshore, that can also intensify and amplify the storm surge problems that will result from
hurricane nate. that will be something to watch out for here in the coming hours as well. ana? >> the director of the emergency imagi management department in mississippi put out a message saying "this is going to be the worst hurricane since katrina." those are some powerful words clearly maept eant to make sure people don't take this storm lightly. >> reporter: i think that's a concern. we've driven from new orleans all the way to mobile throughout the day today. to say the least this has been a very relaxed approach by most people that we've seen, we drove through mississippi, waterfront homes there, just a small number of people who had boarded up windows or seemed to be evacuating those areas. i think it's safe to say throughout much of this region, there's a very relaxed approach. whether that's hurricane fatigue from these storms making news over the last month and a half
or they just doesn't think it's going to be as serious a threat as we've seen from other storms, there's just a relaxed approach to this and many people feeling they will be able to weather whatever it is this hurricane brings along. i know that tends to make emergency management officials and first responders a little bit nervous, makes people a little bit more bold, maybe take chances they shouldn't take, here especially in the overnight hours. that's why those emergency management officials are putting out those warnings and suggestions tonight. >> thank you. i want to turn to rosa now. we know there was a curfew enacted about 7:00 your time, about ten minute ago. are people complying with the curfew in effect? >> reporter: you know, for the most part we are seeing that people are complying. there are very few people outin the streets, but more than anything, i can tell you most of the businesses are closed and
that was one of the big things of course that draws people to the french quarter. there's been very light rain, ana, as our meteorologist was mentioning moments ago. it almost feels like new orleans is completely missing this hurricane, which would be great news. but of course this city prepared heavily for it, recommending that people secure their patio furniture, clear their catch basins, move their cars to higher ground, to the median because here in new orleans that is higher ground. and asking people to secure food and water and supplies for at least three days. this city is expecting not only a wind event but also a surge event. i know we talk about storm surge all the time when we talk about hurricanes but there are so many low-lying areas in south louisiana along the gulf coast.
some of those areas are under mandatory evacuation. we're talking about the areas of grand isle, parts of the eastern portion of orleans parish, areas like venetian isles, iris bayou. because they're outside the protection system, the levee system set up after katrina. there's a lot of concern that storm surge can still happen between 7 to 11 feet we're told by city officials here. of course new orleans is in an interesting position because not on do we have the mississippi river, which is in front of me, but there is lake pontchartrain and that is directly connected to the gulf of mexico. so the north shore here definitely could see storm surge, three to five feet. as my colleague was mentioning
just moments ago, we're seeing people very relaxed. we've been driving around many of these neighborhoods in new orleans and a lot of people have their patio furniture still outside. we're not seeing the boarded buildings, the boarded homes. we're not seeing a lot of that. as we were mentioning earlier, first responders get a little nervous sometimes if people get too relaxed, too fatigued. that's when things can get done in certain situations, if that surge hits a certain way or a part of a neighborhood that could could people in trouble. >> and a storm surge of five feet, that's head high for those of us on the shorter side. it nothing to mess around with. >> president trump send cryptic tweets about north carolina saying only one thing will work. we'll discuss next live in the cnn newsroom.
we are the tv doctors of america, and we may not know much about medicine, but we know a lot about drama. we also know that you can avoid drama by getting an annual check-up. so go, know, and take control of your health. it could save your life. cigna. together, all the way. my dbut now, i take used tometamucil every day.sh it could save your life. it traps and removes the waste that weighs me down, so i feel lighter. try metamucil, and begin to feel what lighter feels like.

(avo) and for people with type 2 diabetes treating cardiovascular disease, victoza® is now approved to lower the risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, or death. and while it isn't for weight loss, victoza® may help you lose some weight. (avo) victoza® is not for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. stop taking victoza® and get medical help right away if you get symptoms of a serious allergic reaction such as rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. serious side effects may happen, including pancreatitis. so, stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area.
tell your doctor your medical history. gallbladder problems have happened in some people. tell your doctor right away if you get symptoms. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite, indigestion, and constipation. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. ask your doctor about victoza®.
there? >> we spent a lot of money on our risk reduction strategy. there is a significant threat for those parts of new orleans and those outside of the levied barrier. that storm surge could be 9 to 11 feet. but one of the good things about the storm, if there could be anything out it, this storm is really busting at 22 miles per hour. it's exceedingly fast and it hits you hard and moves past you. we think we're well prepared for it. any time you have category one and category two winds, projectiles can hurt people. we've asked people to stay off the highways. >> we have been showing people on cnn, people on bourbon street partying. >> you're always going to have people who don't listen to you. i'm out in the east as we speak. most people are paying attention
to the curfew. i would reiterate to them that this storm is moving so quickly, the great danger is that people will take it lightly and because of the storm winds and the surge, people can put our first responders in a difficult situation of trying to rescue them. people should not let their guard down. >> what did you and emergency experts do? you've been preparing for this pretty significantly in the past couple of days. what type of preps have you put in place? >> well, anybody who has done this knows that every storm is different and every one brings you a different threat. often times storms will bring you things you don't expect. we prepare for electrical outages, we prepare for storm surge, we prepare for wind, we prepare for flood, we prepare for all of it. that's what we've been working through. we keep drilling through a bunch of different scenarios, you have to have clear command and control, clear communication and
execution. we can only do so much. if the citizens don't cooperate and they get themselves in harm's way, it can put a lot of other people in harm's way as well. we're hoping they heed the warning all officials and we hope we won't have any loss of life. >> what do you want to tell the citizens? >> i would just say it's really important to listen. if you're not in new orleans, you have other county or parish executives, listen to them. if we say get off the street, get off the street. people think it's cute to get hit by a flying projectile, that could be serious injuries. if you go out to the lake because you think it's a fun thing and you get swept into the water, lots of things can happen, especially with this storm because it's at night. this is an easy one for people to ride out. go home, relax, wake up tomorrow morning and let's hope we get
through this and have the best but not the worst. >> sounds like you're prepared for the worst but ksh. >> we are prepared for the worst as always. we have a great team and a great plan. now we just have to execute. >> thank you again, mayor landrieu. and let's turn to the white house. the president tweeted earlier this afternoon on north korea. "presidents and their administrations have been talking to north korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid, hasn't worked. agreements vie eigolated before ink was drying making fools of u.s. negotiators. sorry, but only one thing will work." here's what the president told a group of reporters on the white house lawn about those north korea tweets. listen carefully.
>> reporter: what's the one thing that work? >> you'll figure that out pretty soon. >> "you will figure it out pretty soon" when asked what is the one thing that will work? kaitlin, the president is talking about this one option in his tweet regarding north korea. but you heard something different from the white house press secretary, sarah sanders? >> we reached out to the press secretary to ask what the president meant by the one thing that's left for north korea. she didn't add anything further to the president's remarks but did confirm that all options are still on the table for north korea. that's something she said during the press briefing at the white house yesterday, but the president continues to make remarks like this. after secretary of state rex
tillerson that he had a line to north korea, the president got on the line and towed tild till not to waste his time with north korea and we'll do what has to be done. he had a meeting with senior military leaders at the white house and reporters went pao in the room and he unprompted made this remark about it being the calm before the storm. when asked what storm, the president didn't clarify but offered one of his favorite phrases, which is "you'll find out." and the president was asked about that and clarify what he meant, what storm he was talking about and he said he felt he had nothing to clarify. so what is really clear here is we don't know what the president means by that but he's enjoying having people left guessing. >> and by not clarifying by that one thing regarding north korea, the president is leaving a suggestion of war just hanging
out there. could that really be his intent? >> well, he's definitely fueling some questions by what he means with these vague remarks and it certainly raises eyebrows when he says things like "the calm before the storm" and "there's only one option left in north korea." but after the north korea country's foreign minister made a remark about the president declaring war on him, sarah huckabee sanders said that was an absurd thing to say and they have not declared war on north korea. it seems like the president is going to continue to make these vague remarks, ana. >> thank you very much. let's dig deeper into the president's remarks. did the president suggesting war might be the one thing with north korea, do you have a
problem with that? >> yeah, i have a pretty big problem. he's right in the goal of the united states is to get rid of north korea's nuclear weapons and num clear program, there probably is one way to do that. but that's not the goal we should be trying to achieve. imagine in pyongyang what they must think of them. if they think we're about to attack them, that's about the only reason they have to launch an attack of their own against the south and its forces. as long as they don't think we're going to do that, they have no reason to launch a strike. >> do you think the president's vagueness creates more of a
threat for their region? >> absolutely. y if you're in seoul and you think north korea might think there might be an imminent u.s. strike, what do you do in the reaction to that? i'm not saying we really are about to launch a first strike. i don't think that trump is saying that either. but by using the sort of careless person from the person who is the only person who can make that decision, i think it puts a lot of people at great risk. it's not that the probability of something catastrophic happening is high, i think. >> but how do you think kim jong un is going to respond to this because he usually does respond. >> this is what is unknown. there will undoubtedly be another north korean missile test. maybe from a submarine, maybe
from another icbm test. will it be directly in response to this? but they still are going to be in so i would be very surprised if there isn't a north korean test sometimes in the next couple of weeks. >> is there any sign that the new sanctions that have been put on north korea are having an impact? >> i think we are seeing that they're having an impact in certain ways. like they might be impacting the functioning of the north korean government abroad and possibly having impact on people in north korea, but are they having an impact on the missile program and the nuclear program? no, i don't think so. and i think that north korea will devote whatever resources necessary to those programs, and i think that tweets like there only further show them that they need nuclear weapons that can
hit the united states to protect themselves from something that we might do without really thinking it through too much. >> so you believe the president's tweets are actually counterproductive. >> they're certainly counterproductive. i'm not blaming north korean aggression directly on the president because they are an aggressive country anyway but i do i this it's counterproductive. >> thank you. nice it see you. up next, new details on the massacre in las vegas. what we're learning about the hunt for a motive. we go live next on cnn newsroom. . since 1925, we have depended on diesel generators, burning approximately a million gallons of diesel fuel a year.
our mission is to make off-shore wind one of the principle new sources of energy. not every bank is willing to get involved in a "first of its kind" project. citi saw the promise of clean energy and they worked really closely with us, the wind farm will lower power prices. we're polluting the air less. businesses and homes can rely on a steady source of power. block island wind farm is a catalyst- - this will be the first of may off-shore wind farms in the u.s.
closed captioning brought to you by -- we have brand new details tonight about that cryptic note found inside the las vegas shooter's hotel room. can you see it here on a table. it appears to be under a tape roll. police had said the only thing written on that number were numbers and tonight investigators think they know what those numbers mean. i want to bring in stephanie elam in las vegas with this new information. what can you tell us? >> reporter: it looks like these numbers are calculations.
officials believe these were calculations for the trajectory from the shooter's window down to the concert venue site, related to the distance, what he would do related to that. we also know he was trying to purchase tracer bullets, something that would be able to show the trajectory of those bullets after he fired them from his window, but he was not able to purchase them when he went there. we're told because they were not in stock. so letteringarning a little bit about what was in that hotel room. still to this point, and this is what's been very frustrating, there's still no idea why the 64-year-old would commit the heinous, heinous crime he did. >> one of the experts said we should be focusing more on the explosives. more than 50 pounds of
explosives in his car at the hotel. do investigators know what he maybe planned to do with it? >> it can be used as an explosive, along with 1,600 rounds of ammunition. this have is he perplexing to authorities as well. take a listen to what they said about what they found in the shooter's car. >> i don't know what he was doing. we found no evidence that the material in his vehicle had intended to be used as an i.e.d. within that vehicle. the answer to your question is i don't know what he was going to do with it. it's one of the mysteries of the actually attack. it's one of the things that my investigators and the fbi continue to figure out. that's juan of the main focuses of our investigation today. >> $ undthe undersheriff also s
they continue to follow up on thousands of leads. it's still not clear why he had done this. it makes officials think there may have been more he was planning. they have reason to believe he was trying to make it out of the suite but they didn't want to let on what that may at this time, ana. >> we hope for more information coming up. we're tracking hurricane nate. we'll have the latest forecast next. stay with us, you are live in the cnn newsroom.
we are staying on top of hurricane nate, which has now made landfall here in the u.s. as a category one hurricane. let's get the bigger picture of the storm from the cnn weather center. tom sater has the data. tom, is this hurricane what you expected? >> for the most part, yes. the path is much of what we expected, which is like lilly back in 2002, came up from the south, moved in as a category one. again, a first week of october storm. but we didn't see the rapid intensification because the speed was quite strong and that's always good news. as you moniesed, we did have our first landfall, the mouth of the mississippi just before the 8:00 hour but we could see a second one now on coastal mississippi because there is water between
plaquemines' parish and the port. the change is we've had a shift to the east. that's why on the western edges, we're not seeing the strong winds with this or much in the way of rainfall. but the computer models still pretty much in agreement with that. that little shift to the east may have shared new orleans, just like we had seen irma shift in part for tampa bay. as we're see the system closer to our shoreline, we're going to see the band move in, not just the threat for tornadoes but for the storm surge. i want to show you the coastline and why the surge is such a big deal. if we get in closer to new orleans, even though they're not going to be in the wind threat, it's a little bit of a problem at lake pontchartrain because now the winds will start coming from the north with their system to the east. that's going to shove water maybe three, six feet up against
the levees. these were the ones breached during katrina. then up get up to bay st. louis, gulf christian, up toward biloxi as well. and we'll see that into areas of mobile bay. let me show what you the storm surge should look like. in some cases it could be quite heavy. when you have a storm surge, as the center gets closer, the feeder bands shoving the water up in the shorelines could be up to seven feet above dry ground. had you is it going to look community by community? anything you see in yellow is three to six feet. orange is six to nine. anything in red is above nine. okay, into bay st. louis.
notice it's red. in toward biloxi, up in the channels and up into all the little river inlets. that's where the water is not going to just shove up into the coast line but find every way it can make its way inland pascagou pascagoula, that's not so bad. the system is going to make a secondary landfall. we'll continue to keep an eye on it. the big threat, t besides the surge, the tornadoes we're starting to see as it continues to make a second landfall, probably around the midnight hour local time. >> sounds like nobody should be breathing a sigh of relief just yet, tom. >> that's true. that is true. >> thank you for staying on top of it for us.
meantime, more breaking news, this time out of charlottesville, virginia, the site of the deadly of white nationalists. and it appears there is a march there again. matt, can you hear me? >> good evening, ana. >> what happened? >> shortly before 8:00, we started hearing a lot of commotion in downtown charlottesville. this is something we've become used to, especially around big events focused on the university of virginia. this weekend is the university bicentennial. there are tens of thousands of university alumni in town for this event and this is the time these groups like to focus their attention on these white nationalist messages. we headed down to the emancipation park, which has been the scene of these events
before and where there is the statue of general robert e. lee now under shroud. about three dozen of these white nationalists, the alt-right supporters, they were gathered around with their tiki torches, the group was led by richard spencer, he's a self-proclaimed founder of the alt-right. they were there for less than 30 minutes. they chanted their typical chant, the "you will not replace us" when they marched back in august. they focused their message again on white america, the interest they believe needs to be supported out there. they left very quickly, ran out of the park and with their final message, "we will be back." >> so was it expected? did you know about this rally, that this was going to happen?
>> we had heard that they were in d.c. earlier today. so with the close proximity to that, kind of expected that possibly something may happen. we had heard some reports that charlottesville police were aware there may be some commotion here tonight. the police response was huge in emancipation park there. as soon as they showed up with their tiki torches, officers were there, just standing, making sure everything was safe, there was no violence, especially considering what happened back in august when the same group in larger numbers showed up. richard spencer is a graduate of the university of virginia, so any time, again, that something big happens at the university, it does seem whto be he likes t draw the attention to himself and to his cause. we kind of expected them to be here tonight.
>> matt talhelm, thank you for sharing with us. >> thank you. >> and hurricane nate is expected to hit the gulf coast. we are live in the cnn newsroom. do not go away. ronoh really?g's going on at schwab. thank you clients? well jd power did just rank them highest in investor satisfaction with full service brokerage firms... again. and online equity trades are only $4.95... i mean you can't have low cost and be full service. it's impossible. it's like having your cake and eating it too.

let's head to a place that's on my bucket list to visit. an american conservationist purchased millions of taker on pattagonia. some locals were not on board. the man who bought the land was a millionaire. he died in an accident in chile in 2015. let's get a look into the window of this place in the world. take a look. >> reporter: this is home to the smallest animal, the big cat, puma, thousands of different kinds of moss, countless ferns, big trees that were alive a
thousand years before christ walked the earth, all of which appealed to a certain tree hugger from back east, an adventure lover, an adrenaline junkie, a big river by the name of douglas thompkins. dropped out of high school, went west to climb the '70s rocks and fell in with a group called the fun hogs. summer of 1968 they climb under -- climed into a van in san francisco and skied, and climbed their way all the way to pat gonia. >> so bill, just the fact that thompkins was a foreigner to come in and buy up all this land, it obviously is going to be controversial. tell us how this all unfolded. >> so they're sort of the founding fathers of the
x-gamers. and he and his buddy couldn't get enough gear to fit their adventu adventures. so he started northface, he started patagonia and millionaires by the time they were in their 30s. but kind of burnt out by the idea of conservism. he used to put tags on his clothes that said only buy what you need. wil wilderness is valuable for its own sake. we need it to survive as a species. so he started selling his art collection and buying land. he'd get rid of and buy a ford down there. the locales were suspicious but their idea was to create a national park system on par which was foreign to these folks in chile. to try to get it back to its
pristine state. but after all of these fights, people started to come around and doug died on this tragic kayaking accident with his buddies, doing what he loved, went into freezing water and died of hypothermia. so raw and emotional. as she now carries the mantle of their vision for saving as much of the planet in its wild state as they can. >> again that was just a couple years ago his death. is there still controversy over who should own that land? >> absolutely. there's a whole movement of locales called patagonia without thompkins. they see it as a different kind of colonial imperialism. no one tells us what to do with our land. the thompkins fought this big dam project that would have created electrical power and
people are resentful they got political in that movement as well. but she says look, we're on the edge of a pres ps and we have to go back the other way. we have to move back from the abyss as a human race and realize we can't, as millions of people reach new wealth in china and india, not everybody can have five televisions and three fridges in the garage. i call her on that. >> they're not living the simplicity that you think of. >> they moved to this little cabin off the grid where everything was locally sourced, even the windows, the glass in their windows was blown locally. he was a big believer of locally sourced living. use the art znz in your area to fill your life. can that idea be duplicated 7 billion times over for all the people on the planet now? and what about the more impoverished placed?
it's an interesting debate about how much pristine planet is left, who gets to say what we do with it. >> and do we need it? >> absolutely. >> interesting. i can't wait to see the episode. i'm a huge outdoor enthusiast. a place i really want to visit some day hopefully down the it road. >> and don't forget to watch the episode a few minutes away at 9:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. but first let's get another check of hurricane nate. it is expected to make a second land fall sometime in the next couple of hours along the mississippi coast and our meteorologist, derek van dam is in beluxy, mississippi. >> well, there's a number of threats to the storm. not only from storm surge, here in beluxy, eastward to tornado threat to heavy rain and flash flooding. there's all kinds of threats
ongoing with the weather deteriorating overnight as the center of hurricane nate edges closer and closer to the mississippi/alabama coastline. speaking to the people here and kind of getting a general sense of how people are feeling in beluxy, mississippi. there was no rush to the hardware stores to board up their homes. and is that storm complacency? storm fatigue from the three we had prior to this? it's hard to tell but we don't want to let our guard down just because this is a slightly weaker storm than maria, irma and harvey, doesn't mean it doesn't have its own threats associated with it. storm surge in this area is particularly dangerous because of the shallow nature of the gulf of mexico. it doesn't take much to push up water into the bays, inlets and
