tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  July 6, 2019 10:00am-11:00am PDT

10:00 am
>> it is indeed all to play for then for coco gauff at this year's wimbledon as the story continues. next up in action on monday against simona halep. >> can't wait to see more. it all starts right now. hello and welcome again to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm fredricka whitfield at cnn's world headquarters in atlanta. we are following breaking news out of plantation, florida where police are responding to a gas explosion in a shopping center. these are live pictures right now. it appears to show part of in a plaza devastated there. polo sandoval is following the developments for us. what more are you learning? >> reporter: this is what the fire department in plantation, florida is saying, that they're
10:01 am
responding to a gas explosion involving multiple patients. let's look at the images. it gives you a sense of how violent that gas explosion was. when it comes to injuries, authorities there on the ground saying only multiple patients and they're also asking people simply avoid this area. can you see why. the damage is extensive. as we see these aerial pictures, it's important to get the lay of the land. you see that gym, that l.a. fitness, which is basically on the west side. it seems to be what suffered most of the damage is that strip of businesses that's going to be just next to that business -- next to the gym, that strip that seems to have been obliterated contains a children's dental office, it also contains i believe a restaurant and contains several other businesses. we're working to see if anybody was inside that building at the time. it obviously would be extremely devastating. as we wait to hear more from authorities, all we know officially from authorities on the ground is that this was a
10:02 am
gas explosion that took place there in plantation, florida. this is going to be a community that's located just west of fort lauderdale, fred. >> and polo, what do you know about when this happened at a time when businesses were open or is this before businesses opened? >> sure. there certainly is never a good time for something like this to happen. it certainly would be concerning that this happened on a saturday afternoon. there's a grocery store nearby, again, that gym that we saw. this would certainly be quite populated at this time. can you see that dental office that i mentioned a little while ago. it's certainly going to play a key role here in the investigation and potentially the total number of injuries that we could potentially see when we get an update from authorities. but again, at this point all we know is that multiple patients that are treated there on the ground in plantation, florida
10:03 am
after this extremely violent gas explosion. >> polo sandoval, thank you so much. keep us posted. >> we're also following news from california when people there are surveying damage after a powerful second earthquake to hit ridgecrest in as many days. the strong quake, a hit last night, terrifying residents, forcing those caught in the shaking to scramble for cover. >> get under the table! oh, my god! >> oh my god! >> holy [ bleep ]. >> oh, the front door came open. >> it's okay, it's okay. hold on, hold on! oh, my god. this is bad, brian.
10:04 am
oh. oh, my god. >> this major quake knocked out power to thousands and sparked several fires, as you see right here. it also cracked roads and rattled items off the shelves. >> everybody okay? did you get hurt? >> i'm just scared. >> is everybody okay? >> the air is really thick. dusty. this is a bad one. it's shaking. shaking again. >> and so far there have been no reports of deaths or serious injuries. the epicenter of the quake missed the major cities nearby,
10:05 am
ridgecrest sandwiched between los angeles and las vegas. sara sidner has more from ridgecrest. >> reporter: residents thought they'd experienced the worst of the shaking thursday. it turned out the largest earthquake to hit california in 20 years, a 6.4 magnitude quake, was just a foreshock. about 8:20 friday night the violent jolt from a 7.1 magnitude quake traumatized the town again. >> cars just started dancing. the dogs were freaking out. the cattle behind us were going nuts. >> reporter: it ruptured gas lines, caused fires. >> everybody okay? >> reporter: knocked out power. left some residents scraped and bruised and at the very least scared.
10:06 am
>> many of them are sleeping outside tonight. we are offering any services as noted earlier, we have places for people to shelter here but many are choosing to just be with their neighbors both in their sidewalks and in their driveways and some of them are in the streets. >> reporter: in the nearby city of bakersfield, the shifting earth sent rocks cascading on to a highway and created cracks along the highway. across the california border in las vegas, the shaking sent a wave of panic in the stands during the nba las vegas summer league game. and more than 150 miles away in los angeles, tens of thousands of l.a. dodgers fans felt the familiar yet unnerving jostling from the quake, though the game went on. near the epicenter seismologists say there is still a chance that the 7.1 is only a foreshock. but the more likely scenario is
10:07 am
strong aftershocks that go on for days. >> it's a very energetic system, sequence. so there's no reason to think that we can't have more large earthquakes. >> sara sidner, thank you so much for that. so the u.s. geological survey says there is a small chance another, more powerful quake could come in the next few case. meteorologist chad myers joins me now from the weather center. this was 7.1, preceding that 6.4, and it could still go up from there? >> certainly. but the percentage considering 7 is so big is now down to 3%. vegas exists because long shots come in, but this is a 3% chance, 97% chance against it. the first earthquake right here -- and this is funny because we always talk about earthquakes as a dot. earthquakes are not a dot.
10:08 am
earthquakes are a tear in the ground. the first tear, the 6.5, was about 20 miles long, as the earth shifted. the 7.1 was nearly 40 miles long right through here so the dot indicates nothing. the dot indicates the center of that tear and which way did it go, this way or this way, the beginning of where the tarot ku -- tear occurred. the reason it's such long duration, you feel it here, you feel it here. like lightning in the sky, the earthquake rolled all the way to l.a. somewhere in the ballpark of a hundred miles away, not associated with the san andreas fault at uall. but ridgecrest is where we saw
10:09 am
the very severe shaking. a quake of 7.1 means a 3% chance of getting something larger than that. i'm going to take you back to college or high school or elementary school. 6.1 is the probable new aftershock we'll see here. but from a 5 to a 6, the power of the shaking, the strength of that shaking is 32 times greater from a 5 to a 6. from a 6 to a 7, that's another 32 times. that's not 64, that's 32 times 32 so a 5 to a 7 is a thousand times more powerful than what we would be seeing here if it was smaller or slower. the initial quick was big, we'll have earthquakes and aftershocks, almost 700 of them. from here the earthquake comparison is five times bigger but because of the log rhythmic scale, we're talking about 11 times stronger in the shaking,
10:10 am
of the energy release. somewhere in the ballpark of 1 billion sticks of dynamite just went off. >> that's extraordinary. and that people continue to feel, you know, smaller tremors and are bracing what could potentially be more, i mean, it is beyond frightening for so many. chad, thank you. we'll check back with you. appreciate it. still ahead, chaotic scenes at a hospital near the epicenter of that earthquake. doctors and nurses scramble to get wheelchair-bound patients to safety. next, we'll show you images from the earthquake right as it hit.
10:11 am
so nice to meet you june, jay, ji, kay, raj, and...ray! good job, brain! say hello to neuriva, a new brain supplement with clinically proven ingredients that fuel five indicators of brain performance. neuriva. thanks for the ride-along, captain! i've never been in one of these before, even though geico has been- ohhh. ooh ohh here we go, here we go. you got cut off there, what were you saying? oooo. oh no no. maybe that geico has been proudly serving the military for over 75 years? is that what you wanted to say? mhmmm. i have to say, you seemed a lot chattier on tv. geico. proudly serving the military for over 75 years. you ok back there, buddy?

10:14 am
parts of southern california reeling today after a second major earthquake there. a powerful 7.1 magnitude quake rocked the ridgecrest area last night. it's the second strong earthquake to hit that area since thursday. more than 2,000 aftershocks have followed. those two powerful quakes which were felt hundreds of miles away in major cities like las vegas and los angeles. here are some of the frightening images of the earthquake as it hit. >> get under the table, get under the table. oh my god. oh my god. >> i got it all on video, dude. oh my god! >> that's our center field camera. >> yeah. >> that is moving a lot right now. >> announcer: everyone just stay calm, if you will, please.
10:15 am
>> it continues to rattle pretty strong here. >> 8:21 here on the air. we're experiencing very strong shaking. i think we need to get under the desk. >> we're going to go to break. we'll be right back. >> we'll be right back, we'll be right back. >> wow. >> everybody okay? >> all the pictures and the walls and everything turned over on us. we live on the top floor in an apartment complex so we was all trying to come out the home and we were shaking down the stairs. i just noticed that the whole entire steps was actually shaking. >> theirs was leaning 90 degrees and almost fell. you got to get out of here right now, right now. >> this is a robust sequence but it's far from unprecedented. it's on the high side of
10:16 am
average. >> i would probably start taking stuff off the walls, make sure you're not sleeping under something that's still hung up. >> so frightening for so many, including for rob campbell. he is from atlanta but was in ridgecrest, california when that earthquake hit. rob is on the phone with me right now. so, rob, how are you feeling today? >> hi, frederica. to tell you the truth, i'm still a little shaken up. it was absolute bedlam last night. >> where were you at the time of this quake? >> it's insane. i'm out here in california right now hiking the pacific crest trail. it goes from the mexican border to the canadian border, and i stopped in ridgecrest two nights ago just to resupply and i got a motel room here and that's when the earthquake started.
10:17 am
and last night it was about 7:30 and i just went across the street to the marshal's to buy some clothes. >> marshal's store. >> yes, ma'am. and it was complete bedlam in there. if you weren't able to see the video, i'm sorry. literally people were just scared out of their minds. >> we're looking at it right now. we can see your instinct was to get that camera rolling. you felt -- you fill in the blanks for me but i'm going to presume that you felt the movement and then you started recording and then we see, you know, that the lights go out. >> i'm not sure if you're going to be able to see the ending just because it was so long. i will say this, it's my first time in california and it was just so good to see the resilience ey y of californians
10:18 am
general. it didn't matter who you were, they just all came together for everyone, total strangers. and i mean, people were crying. grown men were crying. they were scared to death. but, you know, people were just there for them. and it was just -- it really restored your faith in humanity, seeing people pull together during a crisis like this. >> so then, robb, when you were in the store and, you know, describe for me what it is that you felt under your feet and for how long did you feel that? >> it was literally like a poltergeist movie. pretend you were on like a salt and pepper shaker at the amusement park or one of those rides. it was just nonstop up and down. i've never experienced one of these and they're frightening.
10:19 am
>> were you grabbing things, trying to hold on? >> oh, yeah, oh, yeah. all of those things that were swaying in the back on the rails for clothing, you were literally reaching for them. i heard one of your callers say 90 degree angles. you're getting tossed and turned and you're straight up and the next minute you're at a 45-degree angle trying to hold something. >> what were you hearing when this was happening? >> well, that siren was loud enough to certainly alert people. and people, they literally were running from the doors, from the dressing rooms. one guy was in there without his pants. he just had to get out. it was so good because crews in california have like a hurricane emergency plan in place because the employees, they didn't miss
10:20 am
a beat. they were the ones that were most frightened, you could tell, but they just all stepped up and evacuated people and searching the store for somebody that might god forbid be unconscious. >> so, robb, i know it felt like an eternity but do you think you had any real concept of time, how long this shaking was going on, 30 seconds but it felt like an eternity or was this minutes long? >> great, great question. to tell you the truth, i just lost all concept of time. >> yeah. >> because, i mean, if you've seen earthquakes in the past, you know how damaging they can be. that's what i was thinking about. and the time, it just was an eternity. >> i bet it was. wow. what incredible, harrowing moments. i'm glad you're okay. sorry that was your first time to california and your first experience out there.
10:21 am
but i'm glad you're well and that you were able to share with us these images because they really do put us there. it really speaks to the experience. robb campbell, thank you so much. appreciate it. >> thank you so much and you have a great day. >> and you as well. thank you. so this is far from the first earthquake for many californians. for others, though, they have gone through smaller magnitude and they still feel like it left a huge impression. we're going to look back at some of the biggest, most significant earthquakes the californians have experienced. here are even more reasons to join t-mobile. one do you like stranger things? sure you do. that's why netflix is on us. two unlimited data. use as much as you want, when you want. three no surprises on your bill. taxes and fees included. still think you have a better deal? bring in your discount, and we'll match it.

10:25 am
last night's strong earthquake in southern california knocked out power to thousands of homes and businesses, but some businesses managed to stay open despite the damage. here is paul vercammen. >> reporter: i'm here to get a sense of what happened inside some of these buildings. just stuff knocked down everywhere, bottles off the shelves, broken here. the owner, anton, said in the two days they've been rocked by this quake inside the store, he believes they've had more than $100,000 worth of damage. you can clearly see strong,
10:26 am
knocking things off the shelf, shattered glass and bottles everywhere. it's going to be a long time cleaning up. to the credit to the people in the store, they've stayed open. we've seen a steady stream of people coming in here to grab whatever it is they need, including vital things such as water. >> all right, 7.1 earthquake last night. >> still ahead, battling for votes in the bayou. 2020 candidates are pitching themselves to voters at the annual essence festival in new orleans. why that venue is quickly becoming an important stop for democrats, next. nothing feels like connecting with the people that matter.
10:27 am
holiday inn. holiday inn express. we're there. so you can be too.
10:28 am
10:29 am
10:30 am
are battling for votes in the bayou. seven of them are appearing at the essence fest in new orleans. today kamala harris, cory booker, elizabeth warren, beto o'rourke, bill de blasio, michael bennet. pete buttigieg will be speaking there tomorrow. organizers say candidates who attend have an opportunity to talk to one of the most powerful constituencies in american politics. joining me right now is cnn contributor and republican former congressman charlie dent and cnn contributor and former director of communications outreach for the hillary clinton campaign, jess mcintosh.
10:31 am
good to see you both. jess, let me begin with you. how important, how vital has it become for candidates to show their face there at the essence fest just ahead of a presidential race? >> i mean, it honestly couldn't be more important. essence fest is one of the largest gatherings period. it's about half a million folks all descending on new orleans. it is vast majority black women. black women are the base of the democratic party. they are the ones who do the largest share of that volunteer work that is absolutely critical for any candidate who is going to have a ground game rolling. they're a huge donor base. they're our voter base. so going to a city where halfgiy makes sense. i'm not sure why the number of candidates isn't significantly
10:32 am
higher. >> and back in 2017, it was then barack obama who made an appearance at the fest and thereafter other democrats have followed suit. is it a big problem if you are a presidential candidate and you're not there? >> i do think it's a bit of a problem for democrats. as jess said, african-americans, particularly african-american women, have an outsized voice in the democratic primary. it's essential that candidates get in front of this type of audience. just as important as being there is the message they're going to present or project. i think democrats are making a mistake if they're going to continue to talk about issues like forced school bussing, reparations. these are, as a political matter, are not good issues. i like to talk about the scranton test. a lot of people like to talk about scranton, pennsylvania. i think some of those issues will not play well in areas that barack obama and donald trump won in those types of regions in the country. i think their message to this audience, they have to keep an
10:33 am
eye toward the general election, not just pander to a primary audience in new orleans. >> jess, do you disagree? >> yes. obviously i don't think it's pandering to talk to black people about issues black people care about. if we apply the test is this going to fit perfectly comfortable with the white working class in the white rust belt state, we're going to being leaving a lot of issues on the table. we're living in a polarized country and we got to have this nuanced conversation. >> in addition to talking issues, kamala harris at the jazz fest is talking about homeownership. homeownership is something that all americans, everyone is aspiring to do that but particularly in the black community when there are so many disparities, whether it's getting loans, et cetera, she is unveiling a plan at the jazz fest, hoping that that really resonates with an audience there. but of course eventually taking it broader.
10:34 am
>> yeah, and i think that's a really smart thing to do. for far too long democratic candidates sort of looked at talking about criminal justice reform as the be all end all of addressing the issues of a black audience. what we're seeing this year is there are candidates that are bringing a real awareness of the historical challenges that black families have had in terms of creating and maintaining and passing down generational wealth that white americans largely haven't had to deal with, the systemic levels of oppression. we've seen some really exciting platforms from kamala harris, elizabeth warren. they seem to understand there is a really large holistic way to approach the racial gap in this country. >> charlie, in that exclusive interview with chris cuomo, joe biden was explaining his strategies about democratic loyalties. take a listen to part of what he said. >> look who won the races. look who won last time out.
10:35 am
we had -- and by the way, i think alexandria ocasio-cortez is a brilliant, bright woman, but she won a primary. in the general election fights, who won? mainstream democrats who were very progressive on social issues and very strong on education, health care. look, minority sty north star i middle class. when the middle class does well, everybody does well. >> does he have his finger on the pulse there? >> i think he does. the new democratic members of congress who helped deliver the majority to the democrats and then nancy pelosi as speaker took seats that were held by republicans. so these democrats could not run hard left. they weren't talking about medicare for all, they were not talking about a green new deal or reparations. they were talking about health care, they were talking about the economy, they were talking about jobs, issues that
10:36 am
resonated with a broad swath of the american public. i think the vice president is absolutely right about that. it wasn't a.o.c. who delivered the majority to the democrats. it was many others in pennsylvania and new jersey and places like south carolina and oklahoma and california who delivered the majority, and they were not talking about issues that many of the presidential candidates are speaking about at the moment. >> we'll leave it there for now. jess mcintosh, charlie dent, good to see you. thank you so much. next, a judge says that a teen-ager accused of rain deserves leniency because pressing charges would ruin the young man's life. outrage growing over that story. and cnn is watching breaking news. a gas explosion out of florida. we're learning that at least 20 people were taken to the hospital. live updates at the top of the hour. s most reliable network. the nation's largest and most reliable network.

welcome back. a new jersey judge is under fire after a controversial verdict in a rape case.
10:41 am
last year the judge ruled a 16-year-old boy deserved leniency because he was headed for a, quote, good college. athena jones has more. >> reporter: a new jersey family court judge is under fire after ruling a 16-year-old boy accused of raping an intoxicated 16-year-old girl should not go -- be sentenced as an adult because he came from a good family. according to court documents, he filmed himself penetrating mary from behind on his cell phone, displaying her bare torso and her head hanging down. he forwarded the video clip to several friends and later sent a text saying "when your first
10:42 am
time having sex was rape." he argued that she was physically helpless and unable to give consent. in arguing to send the case to an adult court, the judge said it was not a traditional case of rape. he dismissed mary's level of intoxication and noted the boy was an eagle scout saying "this young man comes from a good family who put him into an excellent school wohere he was doing really well. he is probably a candidate for not just college but for a good college." >> thanks to athena jones there. let's bring in aidan friedman and it's good to see you both.
10:43 am
the appellate court said this has to be sent back, this time to an adult court. avery, is there already a message now being sent? will this be tantamount to or lead to a fair trial? >> i think there's no question but that the reversal of judge troiano tees it up for a fair trial. the decision written by this particular judge was just reprehensible. the idea that because someone comes from a good family somehow excuses the horrific violence of this young woman is just inexcusable. and good for the court of appeals. the judges there made it very clear this is wrong. it doesn't matter if you're rich, poor, you're a good student or bad student. if anything, a good family would have taught this young man that what he did is unacceptable in any respect. so look forward to this case going to a grand jury, look for the indictment and look for the
10:44 am
trial going forward in adult court. >> so, richard, do you see that this reversal would impact this new criminal trial? >> well, it definitely put the case in the headlines. people who haven't heard about this now know about it in monmouth county, new jersey. the problem is this judge has completely lost his mind, i know he's retired right now, judge troiano. the man still sits and hears cases. he should be investigated by the judicial grievance committee. he definitely was not in law school the they day taught law. he went out of his way to protect this young man. he claims it wasn't cruel, wasn't predatory. this young girl was locked in the basement with a table blocking the door, with her head banging into the wall as this
10:45 am
guy is videoing saying, hey, the first time having sex should be rape. this is what he did. these are the facts of the case. and the appellate division reversed and rebuked because being an eagle scout or coming from a good family or getting good test scores doesn't give you a pass on rain or sexual violence. >> that's right. that's exactly right. >> but the prosecution hasn't brought charges, fred. they're sitting back. they haven't done anything yet. >> they're going to move forward. >> and if they do, damning evidence will be perhaps that video that was circulated. >> oh, absolutely part of the evidence. the thing that's so troubling here is that you can't really figure out what judge troiano had in mind. the idea of con sense tracentri good grades or a good family and literally her head being banged against the wall is just so
10:46 am
outrageous. it should have gone to the adult court, it will go to the adult court. frankly, that judge is appointed by a judicial council. it's time to eremoremove him. it's time for him to leave the bench. >> it might be very challenging for other circumstances, too. a change of venue, perhaps, that, you know, audiences have been swayed by what they're learning from this appellate process, richard. so, i mean, there are going to be a lot of challenges here. >> there may be, fred. i don't think they're going to chang v change venue on this case. i think it's properly situated in monmouth county. it's just this judge was off the wall. the appellate not only reversed him, they rebuked him. there was another case they rebuked him on. they told him can you not substitute your own
10:47 am
interpretation of. fact and your own fantasy of what the law is versus what the prosecution does based on legal factors. >> that's exactly right. >> that's what they said. it's a horrific rebuke on this guy. it's so outrageous, fred. he should be investigated because it's so outrageous. we're missing a piece of the puzzle here. >> we understand it's outrageous. it reminds you of the brock turner case in california. that was the stanford swimmer. the judge gave him six months and ultimately that resulted in a recall. that wouldn't happen here because he's appointed. i think you're not going to see any further service on the bench by this judge. >> he doesn't come from a good family, doesn't have good grades, then he can get prosecuted from rain. if -- for rape. it's horrible. >> you are there, richard, in las vegas. you felt the tremor from that earthquake, 7.1, in california last night. >> yes.
10:48 am
i got back last night and i'm writing up cnn for you. the house, it swayed eight times like my head does when avery speaks. >> i think the earthquake might have also been existing before it actually happened with richard so you never know. >> all right. avery, richard, thank you so much. always appreciate you. >> meantime, cnn is watching this other breaking news. a gas explosion out of florida. at least 20 people taken to the hospital. live updates coming up. priceline will partner with even more vegas hotels to turn their unsold rooms into amazing deals. delegates, how do you vote?

10:53 am
