tv New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman CNN July 12, 2019 5:00am-6:00am PDT
>> all right, a new advisory for tropical storm barry has just been released. we'll bring you that as new day continues roith now. mandatory evacuations as gulf coast residents brace for a strong storm. >> if you're told to evacuate, don't question it. leave. get out now. >> we are not backing down over our effort to determine the citizenship status of the united states population. >> it's not just about citizenship on a questionnaire. it's about telling supporters before an election you have somebody who represents you. >> the president has no right to do it. this is data we have a right to know. >> i.c.e. agents are planning to carry out out raids in arresting nearly 2,000 undocumented immigrants. >> the federal government hasn't given us any information on who they're targeting. >> this action will tear families apart. >> good morning, and welcome to
your new day. it's friday july 12th, 8:00 in the east. bianna in for alice berman this morning. tropical storm barry is intensifying as we speak in the gulf of mexico. it is expected to strengthen into a category 1 hurricane by the time it makes landfall tomorrow. >> the mississippi river is already at 16 feet, twice as high as normal. and barry is expected to cause 2 to 3 feet of storm surge. now, if it does the region could experience the kind of flooding that hasn't been seen in nearly 70 years. meteorologist chad myers has the latest update that just came in from the national weather center. what do you know? >> i know the pressure has gone down 2 millibars.
winds going in this direction right now. i have a couple of oil platforms out here with wind gusts of 50 miles per hour, pushing water into the bayou. not flooding rain, but you see the direction of the wind and water coming in. now i'll put you ahead all the way to 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, so somewhere around 20, 21 hours from now making land fall along the coast of louisiana. and up the coast with very heavy rain from batten rouge. some areas will pick up to 20 inches of rain. now an important update here. this is the mississippi river at new orleans. i'm going to zoom this in because it's very important to
see especially if you live in new orleans proper. this is the forecast. this is where it is already. it is already above what the areas here have forecast river levels to go for today. if that goes above 19, the top of the levy, john, is 20. i know the governor said it's not going to go over the top but you get winds at 50, you get waves of 3 feet, and all of a sudden that's something people aren't expecting. >> well, devastating flooding has already hit it new new orleans and with barry strengthening and bearing down on the city, the worst is yet to come. let's go live to new orleans and bring in natasha chen. >> reporter: i want to show you some of that flooding you've been talking about. here's the swollen mississippi river, already 8 to 10 feet higher than it usually is this time of year.
and i want to point out where we see the top of a fire hidrpt next to the tree right there. so you can tell just how deep this water is. at that point not terribly deep because again that's usually where a fire hydrant is and people are typically able to walk out to the tree line here. neighbors tell us they usually have concerts in this pace. add a tropical storm to that, we're already feeling wind gusts here, again, everybody is prepping for that. we've met some folks walking along the levy here. here is tony baker who talks about preparing for this storm compared to how he experienced hurricane katrina. >> so this brings some unique elements. we've never had the river this high. you know, a storm come in, the levies are saturated. i think in the katrina situation we had gustav, and they did a much better job of getting
people out and securing the city and that was a lesson learned. i'm surprised they've gotten complace want. >> and the mayor of new orleans has told people to prepare to shelter in place and they have all their pumps and ready to go. >> please standby there in front of all that water. really just describes as really just a foot to spare. if worse than expected things could be very problematic. let's turn to politics now. president trump has backed down, a full retreat to his demand to ada citizenship question to the sen census. he has this executive order to hand over orders. the fact of the matter is that was already in place. joining us now is katelyn collins, cnn white house correspondent, and cnn senior political reporter and shan wu now a cnn legal analyst. i want to play you one of the more ironic comments we've heard
from the attorney general william barr at this event yesterday. listen. >> thank you, mr. president. and congratulations on today's executive order. i applaud the president for recognizing in his executive order that including a question on the census is not the only way to obtain this vital information. congratulations, again, mr. president, on taking this effective action. >> now, this is sort of like the barr summary of the actual series of events. we've seen this movie before because what happened was it was was a full retreat from the president there. there is no more citizenship question, but the bigger picture here, katelyn, may be something different, that what the president wants to be doing is looking like he's fighting on an issue that matters to his base, and the citizenship question absolutely does matter there. on the immigration raids, on sunday, that's an issue that does matter to his base. is this much more about the
fight? is this about politics especially with the mueller hearing just a few days away? >> it certainly is especially about the census. you'll remember when the administration said they were going to drop their effort to add this question in the first place, it surprised a lot of people because they expected the administration to fight back. and it was just the next day the president said we're going to move forward to try to add this question. the president has been informed, yes they were going to drop the effort. but then within the next 24 hours or so the president heard from some of his supporters and allies outside the white house, and that's what led to the president changing his mind there. certainly this is something the president wanted to put up this fight over. they went through this fight and the shifting legal strategies essentially chaosed over the last few weeks. even though the route he took yesterday, signing the executive order, that was something that
was initially suggested to the president by career officials at the census bureau back in a 2018 memo. >> is that what the president was doing, finally coming to terms with the legal options for him? >> his actions and barr's actions reveal an extraordinary disconnect within the justice department. you recall that scene in the maryland federal courtroom where the justice seemed completely taken off-guard and he was contradicted by his superior. barr's remarks about the fact he understands why career people might not want to work on this, it's really unbelievable to hear the attorney general saying that. he wants to switch out his legal team, courts aren't allowing him to do that. it really shows he's running a rogue operation not really connecting or listening to the career people. >> all right, boy am i happy to
see you. why? because over the last few weeks i think you've perfectly predicted what might happen in a democratic primary race. we've got this new series of polls out this morning. let me just put a couple of them up. first from "the wall street journal" but what i think is fascinating if you look at south carolina, this new fox news poll that came out, in this poll, joe biden at 34%, and kamala harris right nearby there at 12%. and the african-american vote, joe biden still just crushing it with african-americans in south carolina. after those debates everyone wanted to know what would happen with the black vote and black support of joe biden. and you said you would be watching south carolina very, very closely and how voters
there respond. so what do you see in these numbers out this morning? >> they're sticking with joe biden. in talking to african-american voters right after this debate, a lot of them were angry at kamala harris, thought she sort of made a desperate and unfair move and felt the victims of joe biden were still their person. these are voters who like joe biden, like the fact he was loyal to the first african-american president, barack obama, and like the fact they feel he can win, he can get those voters not only in a place like new york and california, sort of a typical liberal enclaves but also dig into trump voters, right? the thing i heard over and over again about kamala harris from african-american voters is they like kamala harris but they feel like she can't get white voters. joe biden of course went down to south carolina to make sure he was still on firm ground with those african-american voters,
essentially apologizing for seeming to praise segregationists raptly. so, yeah, this isn't really a surprise to me. i think it probably is a little troubling to the kamala harris campaign that they made this big play for african-american voters and also they're making a play for liberal white voters. and so you see some movement on some polls in her direction on some voters, but that's got to be disappointing to them it still hadn't caught on in south carolina among african-american voters. >> and that apology from biden in south carolina causing a round of applause from the audience. they liked what they heard from him. let me ask you, katelyn, because the president clearly from his fwiter account has been following this primary race closely. specifically when it comes to people like elizabeth warren coming out with policy after policy and now on immigration many of them are left of center to say the least, very
progressive. is this something the white house believes they can run on and benefit from in a larger election? >> yeah, and they're not necessarily worried right now with someone like elizabeth warren in the detailed policy proposals. but what they're hoping is it pushes everyone else in the field to the left. because they think it's going to make it easier for the president to run against whoever is going to be the candidate. they're hoping those people get pushed more to the left so when it does come to that the president can use his argument he's been making about how they're all socialists in his mind, what he's essentially been tweeting about that. what's interesting to watch okay we know joe biden has been at the top of the president's mind. so he sees him as a direct threat to his presidency. another thing they're looking at is how to effectively message against people like kamala harris and pete buttigieg. the president doesn't have an
obvious strategy against him yet and that's something they're trying to determine right now. >> guys, standby for a second because also while katelyn has been talking she also has some breaking news. i understand you have some new reporting on secretary wilbur ross. >> that's the question right now. when you saw the president come out in the rose garden yesterday flanked by his side were the attorney general bill barr and his commerce secretary wilbur ross. the president made his remarks and then bill barr as you noted there, got up, he had a tone of defiance about him. and then the three of them turned around, went back into the oval office and theyp took no more questions from reporters. the one person who's remained silent is the person who's been at the center of this commerce fight, standing to the right of wilbur ross. there is a sense of widespread frustration about how ross handled the census matter and we know the president had been
frustrated feeling he hofolded. they ran out of time to do so because of what had been going on over the last several weeks. now, whether or not this means ross' job is still in question means something else. because the president will shift from criticizing him to speaking favorably from a friend he knew from palm beach. >> and maggie haberman's reporting has suggested the same, that there was a lot of frustration directed towards ross. the question is as katelyn just pointed out, they will have a long history going back. >> maybe friends from palm beach isn't a category you want to be in this week. great to have you on this morning. we're just hours away from this house hearing on the trump administration child separation policy. our next guest is set to testify. we're going to talk about she's

in just a few hours the house oversight committee will hold a hearing on the president's child separation policy. among the witnesses a group of democratic lawmakers who recently toured facilities on the southern border. joining me now one of those lawmakers, texas democrat, representative escobar. an unusual position you'll be in, you'll be a witness in front of congress today instead of the one asking the questions. what story do you want to tell at this hearing? >> good morning. thank you for having me on. i'm greattle to the committee for allowing me the opportunity to testify. as you know el paso has been ground zero for the trump administration's cruel and inhumane policies. and the american public has been shocked and horrified by what we have learned either through the
office of inspector general report, through first hand testimony by members of congress who have been able to get in and talk to folks in our custody, what we've learned through lawyers and journalists. what we've learned is that when people are in our care, vulnerable migrants, they have been subjected to some very vulnerable conditions. the group most vulnerable are children. and we've seen six deaths of children in custody. we've seen children literally ripped from the arms of their parents. family separation, this horrible abhorrent policy, a crew policy is still occurring today, and so it's up to us in congress to lift the veil on everything that is happening. and the oversight committee is doing that today with that hearing. >> one of the things you said, and this is taking place, mind you, two days before raids that were being told by the administration that will be conducted on sunday, which will target some 2,000 undocumented
migrants in the country. you have said in el paso, i've seen single adults held outdoors sleeping under the heat under tarps. what's clear is i.c.e. have been able to conduct these raids because they've been keeping beds open for the planned raids. the inhumane conditions in el paso was a choice by i.c.e. what proof do you have i.c.e. has emptied out these beds for the raids? >> what we've asked over and over again from border officials when i've gone in with my staff or myself or with members of congress, we've had ten congressional el paso visits. but when we've seen hundreds of people, just a month ago i saw about 250 mostly men cuban outside under these tarps in the conditions i described in that tweet you just read. and i asked border patrol why
aren't you all moving them? this should be a temporary processing facility. why are they being held? they will tell me point blank we're waiting for i.c.e. we can't move them until i.c.e. accepts them. and i.c.e. is telling us they're not enough beds. yet we know there are empty facilities. i mean it's -- i'm not an advocate for detention, long-term detention or for treaty migrants like criminalerize, but my god get them out from these conditions and indoors. i'll give you another example. there's the shell game that we all have to kind of figure out as members of congress try to understand what's going on. the week before we went to clint, the congressional delegation went to clint last week, my staff was at one of the facilities there were over 200 women outdoors. when we visited the facility as a delegation they had all been moved.
there is an ability to move folks. it's a choice. i.c.e. really has a lot of control right now, but i believe the reason they're keeping many of their facilities empty is to make room for the interior raids. so keeping people in inhumane conditions such as what i've witnessed, it has been a choice by i.c.e. >> there was an article about you in "the new york times" that published overnight that profiled your work on the border and your efforts to witness what is going on and tell people about it. and there's one quote i want to ask you about. ms. escobar, her husband who's a federal immigration judge, were at the minor league baseball game, an annual tradition to celebrate their anniversary when tears began to roll down the congresswoman's cheeks as triumphant fireworks burst overhead. why were you crying? >> we are living through a really, really dark time right now in american history. what we have witnessed, what i have witnessed, the stories
we've heard from women, children, from families paints a very i would say horrifying picture of american immigration policy in this moment. i think this moment will document cruelty unlikely seen at least in my generation. and we will be judged by the way we treat people. we will be judged by the way that we've acted in this moment and the way that we choose to go forward. and i think watching the fireworks that night and list took the patriotic music and feeling so fortunate to be an american but not proud at all of the policies by this administration. in fact, feeling very hopeless at times. but we can't lose hope. we've got to continue to push good legislation. we've got to continue to make sure that the voiceless have a voice. america is better than this. it does not have to be this way.
we've got a lot of work to do. >> you've got a full plate, congresswoman. not just this issue but also you're on the house judiciary committee, which you'll be questioning former special counsel robert mueller next week. you're one of the more junior members on the committee. you might not get to ask a lot of questions to the special counsel. >> i think negotiations are still in flex. i think we'll have to wait and see what the final deal is between the committee and mr. mueller. obviously i would hope we'd have them as long as necessary not just so every member can get to ask a question but more importantly to get the information we need to get out. again, lifting the veil on what happened when russia attacked us and the cover-up that happened subsequent to that. >> but, yes, you do want to get to ask questions on wednesday? >> of course i do, yes. >> congresswoman, thank you for being with us today. please come back next week
during the hearings. >> smerconish has some thoughts about that. whether junior people like her should be asking questions. coming up, pete buttigieg has a warning for democrats, and it seemed to be aimed largely at front-runner you goesed it, joe biden. davi dav david axelrod is here with his new interview. why go with anybo? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today. ♪ ♪ award winning interface. award winning design.

i'll pass. 2020 hopeful democrat pete buttigieg is struggling with black voters. cnn's latest poll has him at 0% among the critical voting block. actually, not 0%. zero people, zero human beings, zero african-americans said they supported pete buttigieg. >> how many? >> zero. the south bend mayor discussed his efforts to increase his support in this interview with the axe files. >> i'm interested in winning blaks support and deserving to win black support. it's why we're making sure through initiatives like the douglas plan people understand exactly what i propose to do
with the powers in federal office to deal with racial inequality. >> cnn's senior political commentator david axelrod joins us now. pete buttigieg says he's not interested in winning without black support. the fact of the matter is he can't win without black support. >> he absolutely cannot. once you clear those early states of iowa and new hampshire, they come into play. and in south carolina 60% of the voters will be african-american. so as a practical matter, he has to solve this problem or he's going to go back to south bend. and that is a problem. south bend itself is a bit of a problem for him because even though he has this very far reaching douglas plan to try and fight systemic racism in this country, there are troubling issues back home about police staffing, which african-americans dropped by half under his watch. and on city contracting where
minority businesses have done rather poorly in sharing the business of the city, even though 40% of the city is black and hispanic. these are questions that i asked him. we had some interesting exchanges on it and, you know, he has to solve it. and i think ehis campaign knows he has to solve it which is one of the reasons why he was out there with an 18-page plan yesterday to deal with a whole range of issues affecting the community. >> and he got a lot of credit on his response, i think rather honest response on what would happen in south bend. he said i couldn't get the job done. you mentioned this 18-page plan. and my question to you is can he win over the black vote nationwide without winning the black vote at home in south bend? >> yeah, no, i think it's hard. and, you know, the african-american community traditionally responds to people who have a long-term relationship with it. and, you know, that's what saved
hillary clinton in 2016 and obviously helped propel barack obama forward in 2008. so, you know, it's vitally important, and people are going to look at what he's done there and what his relationship with a community is there. and he had a series of issues, he fired a popular black police chief because of an investigation, but nonetheless it was a controversial decision. he tore down 1,000 abandoned homes, many of them in poor minority communities, and that was meant to remove blight, but there was quite a bit of resistance because now there are these vacant lots in the community. so there are a lot of issues he has to confront there. i have no doubt -- i know him pretty well. i think his intent on these issues is positive, but it clearly wasn't as big a focus for him in south bend as it is
right now. >> i want to play an interesting exchange you had with the mayor because i think i heard for the first time a rather direct criticism or at least contrast in thought trying to draw with vice president joe biden. and he's talking about the risks of playing it safe for democrats. listen. >> i'm worried about this for 2020. if we are portrayed as a party that is promising a return to normal, which will be tempting because what we have now is so chaotic and awful, if we look like all we have to say is let's go back to normal, there will be a lot of people who feel that normal hasn't worked for them for decades. >> when you say that, are you referring to the vice president, because a lot of his message is about restoration? >> i think he's one candidate who runs that risk a great deal, not the only candidate who runs that risk. and a big part of what i'm trying to do in my campaign is demonstrate that we understand the causes of which this president is a symptom. if all we have to say is we're
going to go back to normal, then in some ways it could be perceived as a kind of different version than what the republicans are saying. the republicans want us to go back to the 1950s. democrats might sound like we want to go back to the 1990s. a lot of people here don't think the 1990s worked for them any better. >> the actual answer there is yes. what does it tell you now mayor buttigieg feels like he needs to draw this direct contrast? >> i think biden is a foil in certain ways for his candidacy because he's making a very strong new generation appeal and a middle of the country appeal. part of his pitch is not through south bend, the areas around me voted for trump. some people are alieniated from
the status quo. the danger for biden if he should make it to the finals is thats he is an establishment candidate and there still is an anti-establishment mood out there, and, you know, trump has managed to continue to be an anti-establishment candidate even as he's the president of the united states. he won 80% of the vote in 2016 of people who said change was their biggest motivation, and he's still seen as an agent of change. so if that's the case buttigieg is making, he has to solve the first problem we talked about to get the chance to test it, but it's clearly where he's going in terms of striking a contrast with the front-runner. >> $24 million. >> eye popping. >> you can see how excited david axelrod wad be to spend all that money. >> i retired way too soon, you
guys. >> he still has the nervous ticks though in terms of spending money. i have to say this interview is really interesting. be sure to check out the full interview with pete buttigieg tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. on the axe files. >> i watch the interview and listen to the podcast. up ahead, new concern about german clansler angela merkel after she was seen shaking yet again. so what could be the cause? cnn's dr. san jay gupta will explain. ♪ when you have diabetes, dietary choices are crucial to help manage blood sugar,

a rare break with protocol in berlin. german chancellor angela merkel sitting during the national anthem of germany and denmark while welcoming denmark's prime minister. the unusual seated display comes as merkel has been bombarded with questions about her health. wednesday merkel was seen visibly shaking for a third time in just the past few weeks. dr. sanjay gupta is cnn's medical correspondent. and merkel referred to her shaking as wednesday as a phase and says, like it came it'll also go. what do you make of this because it's a bit jarring to witness. >> it's hard to watch when you see that shaking, no question. and i think when they refer to this as possibly being due to dehydration, that first time we saw her shaking, they may not have really had a good idea of
what this was. it's interesting, we obviously don't know for sure, and they may still be working this through with her own doctors, but there's a couple of really important clues here and something i want you to pay attention to. as you look at this video you see her there obviously as she's standing still, she's shaking quite noticeably. if you look quite carefully it seems to be starting in her legs. but i want to show you "the list" next video as well, and notice something. when she's standing again you see the shaking and it's noticeable. but as soon as she starts to move, as soon as she starts to walk, the tremor really seem tuesday go away. when she's sitting, she does not seem to have the tremor, and that's a really important clue when it comes to this type of tremor known as primary orthostatic tremor. it's a rare sort of tremor, but it typically only occurs when someone is standing, bianna. typically it's more likely to occur in women and typically
diagnosed around age 50 or 60. so it seems to fit this pattern. and again this may be something happening and unfolding for them realtime and they're working through this diagnosis themselves. >> it's interesting was it's something i've never seen or heard of before. awhat would the treatment for that be if you're correct in. >> one thing to point out again when i say rare, it is rare. 1 in a million sort of rare. i bring that up only to say there's not these big studies on something like this to really figure out the best sorts of treatment. what typically happens are that medications like muscle relaxants are given because they would relax the tremor which again seems to be primarily starting in the legs, there are types of seizure medications given. not that anyone is suggesting this is seizure but sometimes those medications can work for these types of tremors. one thing important to point out is unlike something like parkinson's disease which tends to progress, with this type of
tremor, primary orthostatic tremor, there are some treatments and it also doesn't typically progress. what you do is you try to not standstill as much. you're either walking, moving or sitting because the tremor really isn't there in those cases. >> well, let's hope you're right and it's not as benign as it looks when you're watching the video. as i said this is the first time i've seen something like this, and now we've seen it three times happening with angela merkel. sanjay, always good to have you on. all right, there's new movement this morning, the democratic presidential race. we'll tell you who's up, who's down. harry etton dives inside the numbers next. at hilton.com,

there are new national polls out this morning and new poll out of south carolina, a key early voting state where the majority of democratic primary voters are almost always african-americans. it shows one candidate clearly leading the pack. let's get the forecast with cnn's senior politics writer and hanalist -- >> hanalist, i'm an analyst. so, okay, let's take a look at the south carolina primary right now, look we've seen this before, but i think there's a real question following the first debate whether or not harris' attacks on biden would hurt him. we see joe biden overwhelming
leading the pack with 35%, but it's interesting when you break it down with african maerps. while harris is running third in south carolina overall and third among african-americans. not just behind joe biden but behind bernie sanders as well. >> and from a national preference standpoint, you have new data, too. >> this is basically from our cnn polls which averages all polling data, and what do we see here? again, joe biden is down pre-debate but still clearly ahead. really you have a three way tie between second place for warren, sanders and harris. and although warren is second, mostly within the margin of error, but basically a three way tie for second place. >> can someone break out of this second tier? and because my main interest in life is to blow up your twitter feed. >> which was definitely blown up. >> you got one candidate on the
rise here and one candidate on the fall. >> elizabeth warren, she didn't get a post debate sort of bounce, and she's been steadily rising. 12% may, 15% post-debate. bernie sanders down from 22% in march but basically stagnant over the last few months, basically staying at that 15% level. what's so interesting to me, right, we have this fight between the progressive lane and the democratic party right now, and this to me is so interesting but take a look at this because this is liberal moderate scale, where 0 is the most liberal, 100, moderate. we see all these folks are pretty much liberal length versus joe biden pretty much all
alone among the top four candidates. and he looks a lot like the average house democrat who won a gop seat back in 2018. and why is this a problem for these folks and maybe good for him because remember this entire election seems to be fought about electability. and this is an average of the 2020 poll since january 2019. and we see biden is the one leading by the most. 8 opponents. sanders is actually only leading by about 5 points so it seems to me the more moderate side may be working. warren up 5 points. she is fairly well-known. >> and that's the ultimate strategy, who can defeat trump where his mind he's the one who can defeat trump. >> this dwifbs him a pretty good shot of making that argument. also who would you choose between donald trump -- trump
actually leads. and this suggests to me if you move too far to the left in the democratic primary it could come back to haunt you in the general election. >> it is why donald trump is throwing around the word socialist every chance he gets. if donald trump gets re-elected nominee -- >> i'll point out that's from our latest cnn poll. these are the net favorable ratings. favorable versus unfavorable. all the democrats, top democrats are basically as popular among the democratic primary electorate. but among all others, republicans plus those who aren't going to vote in a primary, we see joe biden at least the most popular, and these candidates very much well less liked than him, and this suggests to me biden could pull away some of those republican voters. >> it's interesting when you look at sanders and compare him
to that piece about his troubled relationship with the democratic party, and we were seeing these headlines kprg from your research suggesting americans don't want a socialist in office. >> that's exactly right. one last thing i want to point out, serena williams is going for her 24th grand slam event. that is a grand slam for every single one of the democrats running for president. one for all. >> would you have done this slide had tom steyer not jumped in this week? >> thank you, harry. hanalist, harry. >> hanalist john berman, there we go. >> i like it. thanks. last fall we shared the story of luke mickelson, a top ten cnn hero who saw a need to help a few children in his hometown and ended up quitting his day job to follow his newfound passion, giving kids a good nights sleep by building
free bunk beds and getting kids across the country off the floor. in less than a year his project has taken off in a way that a small town farm boy never would have imagined. just take a look. >> we went from just one little community to almost over 200 communities now over 30,000 volunteers. we've also received over 50,000 bed requests. we're here to deliver beds. you want to show me where they go? all right. we started a new program in 2019 to help those kids who have been affect bide natural disasters across the country. we're bringing something they own and they can be proud of. yeah, you like it? >> doesn't that just make you feel happy? >> amazing. >> how many beds can one man build in a day? go to cnnheroes.com right now to see luke's full update story and to nominate someone you think
should be a cnn hero. >> a lot of beds in one day and it shows what one simple idea can do. new orleans bracing for potentially record breaking flooding from this very dangerous storm. more coveragerecto right after .
