flooding. spread out over five states. >> i know all about that. you and i have been kind of drowning in atlanta. days and days of this rain. we're talking about a massive wildfire. this is across idaho sun valley. the numbers are staggering. a hundred thousands acres already burned. you have some 5,000 homes are in the potential path. that also includes some of these very nice homes of the rich and famous, tom hanks, bruce willis have homes there. it's also home to the sun valley resort. i want to bring in dan simon. what are you seeing here? is there any let up at all? >> reporter: speaking of that sun valley resort, during the winter they have the snow guns, those are being put to use in the summer. they're dousing that area with water to ward off any potential
embers that could come that way. i'm here at the base camp. we have 1200 firefighters battling this blaze. whatever you talk about wildfires you always have to talk about the wind. it's starting to pick up a bit today. it was calmer earlier. that's not going to be good news. hopefully it will die down this afternoon and as you said the fire officials definitely want to try to save these very affluent areas. a lot of celebrities have homes here. right now about 2200 homes are under this mandatory evacuation order. there's a shelter that's been set up at a local high school. we were there a little while ago. a few dozen of those folks there. as we said fire crews taking this very seriously. at this point not much in the way of damage. just a few buildings that have

nn legal editor. this is not atypical of christie to get into the controversial hot button issues. part of it is style and part is politics. what's behind this? >> let's add the issue of guns to the whole mix. governor christy has weighed in on several controversial pieces of legislation just the the past few days up in new jersey. today he signed the bill that would ban gay conversion therapy for minors. children under the age of 18 would not be subjected to that anymore. on friday he vetoed a gun bill that would prevent long range.50 caliber rifles from being used in the state of new jersey which was welcomed by gun rights advocated. he also signed some legislation into law that would make guns stricter and of course medical marijuana which was a hot topic,
he seemed to split the hairs on that. the medical marijuana would only be made available to youngsters and not to people over the aim of 18. chris christie weighing in on these difficult issues in the dead of summer. they are long term implications about how this would basic his run for president if he decides to go for it in 2016. >> are these divisions going to be exploited? will they try to keel with some of these? >> chris christie out of all the people that are being talked about, he's blazing his own path. he talked about compromise right there. that's not something you hear from republican, let alone democrats. you're correct in saying he represents a blue state of new
jers jersey. he does a lot of things out of step from the republican party. this could hurt him in states such as iowa and south carolina which play an important role in helping to choose the republican nominee. he could do well in states such as new hampshire and florida. he's a politician we haven't seen often, certainly one who is being considered as a serious candidate. >> what about his ability to raise money? >> very good. in fact, back in 2012 there was very deep pocketed republicans who were not content with the field of candidates that were running, they tried to convince chris christie to run and he took a pass. if he decides to run, he have the money to do so.

as we saw the zoo official say we're going out into areas that are the territory of the bear. it's something we could potentially see more often and also this time of year the bears are preparing to hibernate. they are out looking for food. they recommends that if you're in areas where there are bears to be careful, take your bear spray because you could encounter a bear. >> absolutely. thanks. you can watch weekdays at 5:00 a.m. eastern on cnn. we have a new study that says coffee could be bad for you, but is it really the case? we'll take a look next with elizabeth cohen. let's leave the deals to hotels.com. perfect! yep, and no angry bears. up to 30% off. only at hotels.com. there's a new way to fight litter box odor. introducing tidy cats with glade tough odor solutions.
we've all heard the headlines, coffee is good for you or coffee is bad for you. he liz birth cohen is looking at these studies and sorts throughout all the coffee confusion. >> reporter: conflicting studies about coffee and your health are brewing up confusion. >> i don't know is it good for me, is it bad? should i drink it, should i not? >> i find this information confusing but i just drink it anyway. i drink like ten cups a day. >> reporter: a recent study says maybe she should learn to live without it or perhaps not quite so much of it. the study found that people under age 55 who drank four or more cups a day were 50% more likely to die during the course of the 16-year study and we're
talking about eight ounce cups of coffee, not the giant drinks that many people like to order. coffee might hurt you by increasing your chances of getting gastrointestinal cancer plus -- >> the stimulant from coffee with caffeine could cause irregular heart rhythms. >> reporter: but, and it's a big but, several other studies have found that coffee is actually good for you, decreasing the likelihood you will get alzheimer's, type 2 diabetes and other diseases. so what's a java lover to do? >> when you smell coffee, you know it's time to get your day going. >> reporter: some doctors say you can hedge your bets. >> mark twain once said everything in moderation. >> reporter: so maybe instead of ten cups a day, try sticking to fewer than four. >> our senior medical correspondent, elizabeth cohen, joins us. i'm a coffee drinker who is totally confused. i just saw your report. what should i do? >> i think of it this way. this study is one of the ones that showed that it was bad, but it was bad when it was more than
four eight ounce cups a day. maybe just try to keep it to under four eight ounce cups a day. >> is there something about the group here, the coffee drinkers, do we have something in common that might skew the results in any way? >> it is possible that it's not really the coffee, it's just something about people like you. i don't think so. i was going to say, for example, maybe coffee drinkers eat a lot but that's obviously not your issue. maybe coffee drinkers are really stressed out people and that's why they are dying young in this study. we don't know. or maybe it really is the coffee. we don't know. so when you have all these question marks, the best thing you can do is, as i said in the piece, hedge your bet. you don't have to give up coffee but maybe you don't want to drink a ton of it. >> what does caffeine do to your body? >> i think there is some concern that it gets your heart rate going too fast. that's the concern. and that it can mess up that whole cardiovascular system but that's not proven. nobody really knows that. so even the good things about coffee, we can't prove those either. there's a lot of mushiness here. that's a technical term.
there's a lot of mushiness here. so all you can really do is take that mushiness and say gee, what makes the most sense here is i'm not going to drink tons of coffee. four cups a day. keep it down to four cups a day. >> just keep warming up the same one. >> there you go. >> thank you. everything in moderation. appreciate it. coming up, she secretly says she wanted to go to jail. alcohol, her drug of choice. and she admits to being quote, a mess. lindsay lohan comes clean to oprah. i've been doing a few things for a while that i really love-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550
