oh boy. wi-fi fast enough for the whole family is simple, easy, awesome. in many cultures, young men would stay with their families until their 40's. hundreds of rescues in the u.s. as hurricane florence promises more rain for days. and a monster typhoon is heading for southern china after bringing fierce winds to hong kong and destruction to the philippines. we're live from cnn's world headquarters in atlanta. welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm natalie allen. "cnn newsroom" starts right now.
2:01 am
our top stories, two massive storms causing serious problems simultaneously but have a world apart. monster typhoon mangkhut is bearing down on china after leaving a trail of destruction in the philippines. we'll have more on that story in a moment, but we'll start here in the united states. florence was just downgraded to a tropical depression. it may be weakening and moving away from the carolina coast, but the danger is far from over. this storm has already killed 13 people. and officials warn the massive flooding could just be getting started. florence is dumping enormous amounts of rain as it moves inland. and all of that water is pushing rivers to record levels. the city of jacksonville, north carolina, is warning people who evacuated their homes ahead of florence to stay away for now. widespread power outages, impassable roads and flooding are making it dangerous for them to return home at this moment.
2:02 am
cnn's ed lavandera says people who did not evacuate are worried the flooding could get worse. >> reporter: we are along highway 258 in a neighborhood north of jacksonville, north carolina. this is an area where throughout the course of the day about 30 people had to be rescued from their homes by coast guard helicopters flying overhead. all of this because there's a river running through the city or into the city called new river. and the water from that river is spilling into many neighborhoods. we have spent the day in this one particular neighborhood where residents had told us earlier today around 7:00 in the morning they noticed the floodwater started creeping into the neighborhood. and it didn't take long for several dozen homes to be under 3 to 4 feet of water. obviously, on a third night of rainfall here in jacksonville and along the north carolina coast, many people huddled in their homes going to bed once again wondering about what
2:03 am
exactly it is they are going to be waking up to. we interviewed several families who said they never expected this neighborhood to be threatened by floodwaters. that it has withstood heavy downpours from tropical storms and major hurricanes in the past. they thought they were going to be high and dry here. nonetheless, we saw several families loading up their cars and packing up as many belongings as they could and heading to higher ground here to avoid the floodwaters. the good news is here as night fell, it started to recede a little bit. but it is, again, raining and many people expect the river won't fully crest for a couple of days. and they won't feel for certain that they are out of danger until that happens. so that anxiety and the tension of what exactly the damage that this storm is bringing to this part of north carolina is still sinking in. and many people coming to terms with what it is that they're dpopg to be dealing with here in
2:04 am
the weeks ahead. ed lavandera, cnn. and take a look at this road that has been washed away. the governor warns people to stay off the roads as much as possible. and this is why. much of the state is dealing with rising floodwaters from florence. a woman in spring lake, north carolina, did drive on the roads there. she ended up losing control of her car when she hit water. the car was swept off the road into the woods. the driver did manage to kick out a window and escape. >> the water is so high that it drains my car, drains the battery, everything. so i call my cousin and am like, hey, can you come and get me. then the water keeps building up it's like titanic stuff. you could see the water coming up. so i'm like, boom, and pushed the window out. as i pushed the window out and tried to swim out, the current just takes me down.
2:05 am
>> reporter: how far from the main road are you? >> far. far. at least a half mile. >> officials have warned citizens to stay off the roads because that very thing can happen quite easily. well, the town of lumberton, north carolina, is especially vulnerable to flooding. and florence presents a huge challenge. officials there say first responders have been rescuing people nonstop from the rising floodwaters. our polo sandoval has that part of the story. >> reporter: we have been seeing today so far as to the situation there along the river that it continues to worsen, something similarly to what i witnessed two years ago when hurricane matthew made for an extremely dangerous situation in the same area where many people lost their homes. we are seeing, we have been witnessing the lumber river continue to rise. currently flowing at 17.5 feet. and it is still going up, expected to crest possibly
2:06 am
tomorrow. still hassed a least 7 more feet to go -- still has at least 7 more feet to go according to my colleagues today as we traveled. it's been a while, at least i can't remember the last time i saw water, floodwaters rise so quickly in neighborhoods and in businesses. some of the footage we're showing you is some of the footage we shot off our vehicle with some of the equipment we have, especially for this vehicle, to be able to drive through the vehicles. but eventually it did get simply too dangerous, so we turned back. that's what authorities recommend the people do, simply stay indoors. there is something that authorities have been noticing lately, and that is people assumed the worst is over because there's no more high winds. so many of them deciding to perhaps leave shelters. authorities saying it is not a good idea. there are several rescues that
2:07 am
have already happened in lumberton. hundreds, in fact, according to authorities. and they will continue into the night as the lumber river continues to rise. >> again, the storm is affecting both north carolina and south carolina. we turn to myrtle beach in south carolina where some say there's not much damage, but worse flooding is likely to come. a few hours ago scott maclaine and his team drove around to show you the conditions there. >> myrtle beach has not seen much in flooding, but if you move south of here, garden city beach did see some related to the storm surge. the peak of that surge was around high tide. around 1:30 today. that's when water managed to get into some homes near the water. i spoke to one man who was returning from being evacuated. and i asked him about what he found, which was a little bit of water in his front room.
2:08 am
listen. >> so when you first heard of florence, what was your initial thought? >> oh, no, not again. >> reporter: so far, what is your reaction so far? >> i am very pleased with what we got. i came down here to see my brand new furnishings wet after replacing them a couple minutes ago. and i replaced the heat pump, so i'm pleased with how it turned out. >> reporter: the big story here in south carolina is going to be flooding over the next couple of days in places like conway, about 50 miles inland from where we are. the river there is expected to have record-setting flooding. that may not come until wednesday, thursday or beyond. >> and karen maginnis is joining us from the severe weather center. karen, you warned of the
2:09 am
catastrophic flooding. it seems that is what is happening. >> yes. and it is ironic that the national hurricane center was just sent out a 5:00 a.m. advisory that said this is the last advisory they are sending out on now, tropical depression florence. but that doesn't mean the story is over by any stretch of the imagination. we knew there would be epic catastrophic flooding. and, indeed, across coastal north carolina. that's been the case where rainfall totals have been staggering. well, the winds associated with florence now down below tropical storm strength. so it's a tropical depression. but take a look at some of the rainfall totals. swansboro just below cape lookout. and the rainfall total there shattered any previous record. they saw over 30 inches of rainfall. myrtle beach saw just over 7 1/2
2:10 am
inches of rainfall. this is a multi-day event. but the stories coming out of north carolina, even in the long-term, are going to be staggering. i mentioned people are so concerned about their homes being destroyed. their businesses, their livly hoods -- livelihoods, agriculture, livestock, the roads have been so compromised, if not damaged or destroyed. but still this long fetch of moisture still being drawn up from theed a land tick -- from theed a land -- from the atlantic and moving across the west. if it does, the rainfall is going to be heavy at well. so natalie, the story is not over, even though the national hurricane center says we have sent out the last advisory. we all understand this is not it. >> yes, absolutely.
2:11 am
still need to be very careful. thank you, karen. appreciate it. another major storm is planned for the western hemisphe hemisphere. typhoon hangkhut is bearing down on hong kong. we'll take you there, next. and a deadly shark attack for beach goers in massachusetts leaving many on edge. ace to be reckoned with. only botox® cosmetic is fda approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better. it's a quick 10 minute cosmetic treatment given by a doctor to reduce those lines. there is only one botox® cosmetic, ask for it by name. the effects of botox® cosmetic, may spread hours to weeks after injection, causing serious symptoms. alert your doctor right away as difficulty swallowing, speaking, breathing, eye problems, or muscle weakness can be a sign of a life-threatening condition. do not receive botox® cosmetic if you have a skin infection. side effects may include allergic reactions,

2:14 am
typhoon mangkhut is expected to make landfall in southern china late sunday night. more than 100,000 people have been evacuated in hong kong. residents stay inside as strong winds and heavy rain tore off roofs, snapped trees and downed power lines. but after the worst apparentlies paed through, some people -- worst apparently passed through, some went outside to swim in the streets. others traveled to hong kong just for the storm. >> translator: i wanted to come here and see how severe the typhoon is. but now they came here to the pier, it is not as wild as i had expected. >> well, i came here to actually catch the typhoon. i have, like, a helmet with a camera mount. and i have my waterproof gear for catching good footage of the
2:15 am
storm. >> our kristie lu stout is out there. you have been out there for a while getting blown around. are conditions getting better? we just saw some people heading outside. some people took a little swim in the floodwater. that's crazy. >> reporter: yeah, absolutely. it feels like conditions are starting to improve a little bit as typhoon mangkhut continues to sweep past hong kong. it is continuing to rain, not the pounding we were experiencing earlier in the day. there's a little bit of wind, but not the major gusts of wind we were experiencing firsthand and being confirmed by the hong kong observatory. at one point, winds up to 230 to 240 kilometers clocked here in hong kong, that means the threat of storm surge. victoria harbor as well as peak storm surge reported in outlying and low-lying areas of hong kong. no stranger to typhoons. we experience typhoons every
2:16 am
storm season, but mangkhut is the most powerful storm of the year. and the meteorologists here in hong kong were warning of this being one of the most powerful storms to hit hong kong since recording typhoon activity five decades ago. the danger is not over yet. as the rains continue to pick up here, we know mangkhut is a rainmaker. at the peak, it has the rain bands about 900 kilometers wide. this thing is going to churn up more rain, and that will introduce the risk of landslides and flash flooding. we have been monitoring social media activity. and we are still getting pictures of some flooding in areas, for example, here in hong kong in the southern and eastern part. we're finding to continue to report on that as well as the aftermath of the storm. so keep it here for cnn. we'll keep you updated on all elements of the story. back to you, natalie in the newsroom. >> kristie, thank you so much. and my colleague spoke to
2:17 am
james reynolds earlier who is in the philippines right now following the typhoon. here's how he sees it and how it impacted the philippines. >> reporter: hi, it has been an exhausting and long 48 hours here. the storm absolutely battered the northern area of this city and all the way up to the coast. ferocious winds hit in the early hours of saturday morning. and today i drove from the extreme north coast down to the main coast to check it out, and there was damage to buildings, power lines blocking the roads, trees down, power lines everywhere, a real mess right now, anna. >> what is the biggest problem? obviously, where the storm made landfall, thousands of homes were destroyed. and now we're looking at your
2:18 am
picture where is the winds and the rain have devastated, obviously, certain parts. but what are the major problems? is it flooding? is it landslides? >> reporter: right now from what i saw, the flooding situation wasn't too bad in the area. there's a lot of wind damage as the storm made landfall as a category 5 typhoon. so all the cell phone towers have been knocked out. obviously, electric is down over large portion of the country up here. but right now, the damage i saw earlier was created by the wasn't. >> james, the people you have spoken to, did they heed warnings and evacuate and get out of harm's way? or did they decide to sit and wait? >> reporter: well, the reality of a storm leaving the philippines is that not everyone has the means to get out of the
2:19 am
way when. many people live in shacks and huts, and i'm sure that was repeated across a large portion of the country as well. so it remains to be seen just how many people have been hurt. >> yeah, we're getting conflicting reports. there are some government agencies reporting as many as 25 deaths. the official death toll still remains at two. what are you hearing from the officials? >> well, unfortunately, i haven't been here that long. but this is mostly because of the -- the people can't talk to
2:20 am
each other. people are trying to contact their loved ones with no success. i don't think the government will be having issues communicating with people and getting in touch with regional towns. but i think it will be a while until this clears out. >> so many areas are still cut off. charles reynolds, many thanks for your update. so we just saw hong kong threatened, china is next, and we just saw what happened in the philippines. so yet again, another deadly typhoon. karen maginnis is back with more on this. karen? >> we look at the satellite imagery and the winds associated with typhoon mangkhut is now at 90 miles an hour. the equivalent of a category 1
2:21 am
hurricane. but boy, the last couple of hours, some of the wind gusts reported around hong kong, right around 173 kilometers per hour or just 100 miles per hour. but with gusts at 220 kilometers per hour. and now that seems like it has eased up, but there's still a storm surge that could be 3 to 4 meters high. we have seen lots of waves crashing ashore. the airport pretty much was at a standstill. we were looking at flight tracker. and there were no flights landing or taking off. the major international carriers, korean, singapore, delta, we were -- they all had flights canceled. but it looks like that may be tapering off. still kind of a rain shield around this region. and gusty winds, some occasional heavy rainfall. so that t-10 alert is in place because the danger is not over. but this system is going to be
2:22 am
ringing itself out over the next several days across south central china. there's the wind gusts reported here so far, but looking to the interior, it's going to weaken rather rapidly. the call centers, people calling for help, has been overloaded. there was also the coastal dangers. also the shipping channels, one of the world's busiest shipping channel is there in victoria harbor. with wind gusts like that, it made it for very treacherous conditions. the hong kong international airport, the third busiest in the world, has already seen 124 millimeters of rainfall. it's not finished yet, but that gives you an idea how stragerring the precipitation is associated with the outer bands of what used to be super typhoon
2:23 am
mangkhut that moved across china and is wreak havoc there. but for hong kong, along the pearl river delta, natalie, 120 million people live in that delta. it's one of the densest populations in the world. and they all got to heed this warning. >> okay, thank you. and a man died from a suspected shark bite. and shark sightings are on the rise in the area. reporter jim smith from wbc has more about it. >> all of a sudden somebody yells, shark! shark! >> there were a ton of people asking for help. >> reporter: a nightmare at a
2:24 am
beach where a young man is bitten by a shark and it is fatal. the victim was boogie boarding and suddenly attacked. >> they were waving to us. and i ran up. somebody had him by -- underneath his arms sitting in the surf. they had him supported up, his head up in the surf, and other people came up and wrapped his legs in towels. >> part of an unknown shark bite. >> we have an unconscious male with leg injuries. >> around noontime i received a 911 call about a possible shark attack in the water, a male in his mid-20s was brought out of the water and cpr was in progress. >> reporter: the man's family has been notified. a long-time surfer where people said they did everything they could but there were severe leg wounds. >> there were a half dozen people trying to stop the bleeding with towels. and i guess the cord from the boogie board. they were amazing and did a great job. >> reporter: the police closed
2:25 am
this to swimming on one of the prime weekends of the september season. even long-time cape coders realize things have changed thanks to a surging shark population. >> it's happening all the time. so it's scary and really sad. my heart goes out for that family. coming up here, president trump has the busy week ahead of him after a not-so-great week last week for various reasons. we'll have a report and a live report about that. plus, an arrest is made in a texas killing spree. the identity of the suspect may surprise you. listerine® cleans virtually 100%. helping to prevent gum disease and bad breath. never settle for 25%. always go for 100. bring out the bold™ ahoy! gotcha! nooooo... noooooo... quick, the quicker picker upper! bounty picks up messes quicker and is 2x more absorbent.

2:29 am
welcome back to our viewers here in the u.s. and around the world. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm natalie allen. here are the top stories. typhoon mangkhut is battering hong kong with heavy rain and winds. look at this hitting a house in hong kong. the storm passed through the southern edge of the city and just made landfall in southern china. the storm has weakened since plowing into the philippines on saturday damaging homes and leaving thousands of people without power. and in massachusetts, thousands of people are returning to their homes after deadly gas explosions and fires in three towns on thursday. many homes just burst into flames after they exploded. meantime, the national transportation safety board is investigating a pressure increase in a natural gas pipeline as it tries to determine what caused the incident. theresa may is defending herself as critics speculate
2:30 am
about her future as british prime minister. mrs. may told the bbc she's a little bit irritated by it. in an interview to mark six months until britain leaves the european union, the prime minister says she's focused on the u.k.'s future, not her hundred. tropical storm florence is now downgraded to a tropical depression, but it is still dangerous and causing widespread problems. at least 13 people have died due to the storms. rivers throughout the carolinas continue to rise due to the rerelentless rain. and it will take days and possibly weeks to assess the damage florence inflicted on coastal communities. north myrtle beach in south carolina was on the southern edge of the storm. cnn's nick watts says the beach town appears to have come through in good shape. >> reporter: 9:00 a.m. sunday morning, the evacuation order that covered north myrtle beach will be lifted, which suggests local officials, state officials
2:31 am
are confident that north myrtle beach has already seen the worst of this storm. there is one more high tide in the early hours of the morning. and north myrtle beach survives that, then it has survived hurricane florence relatively unscathed. there were power lines down, some trees down. some localized flooding, but not what people feared this storm might bring. people will start coming back, they have already started coming back on saturday. and one woman who saw her house standing said you up don't understand the feeling and joy it is to see my home standing, particularly when i have been through devastation before. her house was completely destroyed in 1989 by hurricane hugo, hurricane florence and then tropical storm florence did not bring the devastation here that some might have feared. it is an area very prone to flooding. it has flooded many times. and this time, just localized, they really dodged a bullet here. now, the story is finding to
2:32 am
move further inland, it's going to be fresh water we're talking about, not tidal surge. that's to do with the rain, this huge storm has dumped over north carolina and south carolina. the river that rises in north carolina flows down into south carolina, trillions of gallons, a record fell in north carolina. the water has to go somewhere and some of it is heading south as the storm moves west and away from the coast. nick watt, cnn, north myrtle beach, south carolina. u.s. president donald trump is likely to tour some of the storm damaged areas this week. back in washington, he's dealing with a rough week. his former campaign manager paul manafort who has already been convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion has now pleaded guilty to other charges in a deal with special counsel robert mueller's office. also, mr. trump's pick for the
2:33 am
u.s. supreme court also hit a possible snag. an anonymous woman claims brett kavanaugh assaulted her when they were in high school. kavanaugh denies the allegation. and mr. trump continues to insist that 3,000 people did not die in puerto rico from hurricane maria one year ago. he tweeted the new death toll was cooked up to make him look bad. let's talk about the developments with political analyst scott lucas joining us from birmingham, england, where he teaches international politics at the university of birmingham. we always appreciate you coming on. thanks for coming here, scott. let's begin with paul manafort's plea deal. the white house is saying this has absolutely nothing to do with the president or his campaign. how are they so certain? >> apparently donald trump said paul who? i don't know the guy. and rudy giuliani, of course, who can turn day into night, is trying to claim that the
2:34 am
investigation in paul manafort could have absolutely nothing to do with the fact that he was campaign manager for donald trump for several months in 2016. so the short answer is, they're not certain. they are not certain about what exactly paul manafort may have already told special counsel robert mueller has part of the plea deal. they are certainly not certain of what manafort may say in additional interviews with mueller's team. and their line is, of course, that anything paul manafort had to do with the consultants or the activities before 2016, nothing to do with him, the problem is paul manafort as campaign manager knows the inner workings of the trump campaign for that period before the ex-will. he knows particular details of finances around the campaign. so yes, they are worried about what he might disclose. >> manafort is something that is on the minds of people as they go to vote in the midterms. they are approaching, that is. when it comes to president
2:35 am
trump, what issues will be at the forefronts of voters' minds? the chaos in the white house or the great economy and low unemployment, which would work in his favor? >> i don't want to speak for any individual voter, because you have to remember as congressional elections, these issues vary state to state. but you'll see a shift in the republican strategy, including that of donald trump, given the uncertainty over the elections. at one point the trump administration was going to fight this on the very tough line of, we're tough against immigrants, that was sort of undermined or jeopardized because of the controversy of separating children from parents. at one point they were going to fight it on tariffs and being tough and other countries can't push us around. that's being undermined by doubts about whether tariffs will hurt the u.s. economy. so i think they now are on the line that the u.s. economy has shown growth during the first 18 months of the trump presidency. they will try to prevent the
2:36 am
idea of course as this part of the long-term growth, for example, in the last 18 months of barack obama's presidency had more job increases. they will try to say that this growth is not based and is not based just on tax cut that is will burst soon, but it's a long-term economic miracle. what will voters make of that? i think it really depends on whether they see the glass half full or half empty regarding their own prospects and whether they think this is due donald trump. or if it is part of a wider development, in which other people including the obama administration have some responsibility. >> well, another issue that came up this week, the president's supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh, an anonymous woman alleges he assaulted her years ago. could that have an impact on whether he gets voted onto the supreme court? >> i don't want to comment on the details of the case, because it is subject to dispute, but
2:37 am
what i would say is in broader context that as long as the letter is just at the letter of an anonymous letter where you don't have a specific accuser, i don't think it will carry enough weight to make a difference in the hearings. what i would say, however, two things, one is don't forget that i think there are standing issues that are arguably more serious. and that is there are some on the committee who say that brett kavanaugh gave misleading answers. for example, over the improper acquiring of democratic party documents about 15 years ago. and whether he had any involvement in that. there are questions about his answer regarding his contents with a law firm that represents donald trump. and whether that is a conflict of interest. and secondly, all of this has come about, and the question you asked me is really supercharged because this nomination is being rushed through. all legal concerns have been super seeded by the political imperative that the republicans
2:38 am
want kavanaugh confirmed before november. when you let political concerns override the legal basis of what the hearings should be, then you're finding to get these kind of -- let's call them complications. >> yes, and we'll certainly see political concerns at the forefront of many of the issues there in washington, don't we? also this week, scott, the president attacked democrats for the higher death number reported in the puerto rico hurricane. it talks about perhaps changing the numbers, but researchers at george washington university, penn state, they all agree on the 3,000 that died. so why is the president seriously debunking this story? >> because he doesn't want any blame for the fact that almost as many people died as a result of hurricane maria have died in the attacks on 9/11. because he initially tried to proclaim that he was winning over this disaster when the death toll was only officially around 32. and because even last week he
2:39 am
was proclaiming an incredible unsung success and that he was still winning. i'm going to drop the objectivity here for a minute. i don't mind the president going after his critics, that's part of politics, but in this case what has happened is donald trump has reduced a tragedy, more than a tragedy, a preventable tragedy in which thousands of people died into saying, oh, no, no, they just simply perished of old age. nothing to see here. he's den graded medical -- denigrated medical reports to say these are people spouting off because they are my political enemies. look, we should honor those who died in me a rea -- maria. puerto rico is suffering because nothing was done as we face another hurricane on the east coast. >> scott lucas, we always appreciate your insight, thank you. >> thank you. we turn now to the u.s. state of texas.
2:40 am
authorities say they have caught a serial killer there. the suspect is a u.s. border patrol agent. he's been identified as this man, juan david ortiz. he's accused of murdering four people before being arrested in laredo, texas, on saturday. the case broke when the woman he allegedly tried to kidnap escaped. she called police and described the suspect. the suspepolice say there could more victims. a new round of demonstrations could challenge the government of russia's vladimir putin. we'll have more on what this is about coming up. crest 3d white removes... ...95% of surface stains in just 3 days... ...for a whiter smile... that will win them over. crest. healthy, beautiful smiles for life. tremfya® is fors caadults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

2:44 am
more protests are set for russia where rallies against russia are expected in st. petersburg. this after tensions clashed last weekend. people are furious at proposals to raise the retirement age. police cracked down and a monitoring group said more than 1,000 people were detained. the protests have been called for by supporters of opposition leader alexi novaldi. even traditional backers of president putin are angry about this, aren't they? >> yes, they are. and actually, these protests that are expected to be held in st. petersburg today have not been called by alexi novali but by other opposition groups in russia that want to distance themselves from alexi novaldi. but the communists have staged protests in this country. last week it was, indeed, alexi
2:45 am
