tv Shepard Smith Reporting FOX News October 6, 2016 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT
i understand he ended up with an iphone at the end of all this. trace, thank you. >> all our very best to everyone and the storm's path right now. be wish you well. that's it for us in america's election headquarters. >> now, shepherd smith reporting live news desk. >> weather alert to start us off, 3:00 on florida's east coast, where if the governor is right, millions of people are about to experience a living nightmare. the forecast is a direct hit by the most powerful storm to hit the united states in more than a decade. large scale evacuations being carried out along florida's east coast. millions and millions of people under orders to get out before it's too late. our reporters say many are staying, and for them, if the forecasters are right, too late will come very soon. 145-mile-an-hour winds lift rocks and throw them around like bullets. they turn trees into missiles. they break windows, tear down
power lines, soon you can't see anything. the sound is deafening, and completely disorienting. i've lived it, and it is hello. the storm surge of a monster cyclone like matthew if it hits just right, will wash homes away and leave anyone inside to die a violent death. this is not to scare you. it's to remind you what happened when katrina hit the mississippi coast. it struck at 2:00 a.m. in my state. sustained hurricane force winds on the coast of mississippi for 17 hours. it spawned 11 tornadoes, produced a 28-foot storm surge, destroyed tens of thousands of homes and killed hundreds of people in my state. some of their bodies have not been recovered. some of their families had nothing to bury. and matthew is expected to be stronger and last longer than katrina. you see what i'm saying? it's hitting a much more populated area. maybe it will stay offshore.
maybe florida will get lucky. it's a very big maybe. and it's not a gamble you can take. if they've warned you to evacuate, do it now. or risk death on a freeway in a traffic jam from hell later. as florida's governor has warned repeatedly, this storm will kill you. it will kill your children. it will kill your pets and everyone you know who wants to mess with it. unless you get lucky. here's a look at where matthew is now. today, it brought winds of 125-mile-an-hour to the bahamas. the forecasters say the hurricane is getting stronger and if as it makes its way towards the united states, it will continue to strengthen. they're telling people to expect life threatening conditions. this video gives you a look at where the storm was in cuba as it made its way toward the bahamas. this is from a so-called hurricane hunter plane that flies above the storm, helps the forecasters track it.
100 people died in haiti. forecasters say half of the state of florida, half of it, could see tropical storm force level winds. in fact, they're warning we could see tornadoes even before the hurricane gets there. thousands of people have already checked into shelters. airports are closed or closing. the governor rick scott told people this morning, the clock is ticking. >> if you're in an evacuation zone, get out. this is not something you should take a chance with. time's running out. leave. there's no excuses. the roads are open. you should get out. evacuate, evacuate, evacuate. >> as i mentioned, the storm has already left behind devastation in the caribbean. the interior minister in haiti says now the death toll is 108 and they're still looking. thousands and thousands of homes are destroyed. the government there estimates hundreds of thousands of people need some kind of humanitarian aid. it is a disaster. despite the warnings, lots of people here in the united states have said they're not going anywhere. we will not cover your funerals
and we will not feel sorry for you. they're stocking up supplies, boarding up their homes and hoping, which is moronic. matthew is a rare category 4 hurricane. this animation shows a look at the scale of the damage we expect there. if it hits the way they're predicting, this is what we expect. winds could reach speeds at times of 155 miles an hour. over on our wall, a look at the storm track. the forecasters there have expanded theiar where the storm may hit. see this, melbourne, daytona beach, all the way up to jacksonville, this moves 20 miles to the west and you and everyone you know are dead. all of you. because you can't survive it. it's not possible. unless you're very, very lucky. and your kids die, too. we have team fox coverage. steve is in wubauso beach in florida with a look at how things are going there. first, to janet in the extreme weather center. there's a risk you build
something up too much and then it doesn't hit. they're pretty sure, janus, aren't they? they're pretty sure if it doesn't stay out to sea, a lot of people are going to die. >> you have to take into account when this storm hit haiti and the pictures we're seeing, it was the same strength, it was a category 4 storm. so if this storm is the same strength that hit haiti and we're getting pictures, obviously, the homes in haiti, the structures are not as sound as what we have all up and down the east coast, but that is certainly something to take into account and of course we haven't had a major hurricane hit the u.s. in 10 years, like you mentioned, the last was will muin 2005. so hopefully people are heeding those warnings, millions of people have never experienced a hurricane and they're about to. so the hurricane itself is about 100 miles away from west palm beach so we're getting there and starting to see outer bands moving across south florida, central florida. you mentioned the tornado threats. that is going to be imminent over the next several days, all
along the coast. you can see those winds right now, and there's the core of that storm, with 140 mile-per-hour sustained winds. and the hurricane force winds extending 60 miles from the center of the storm. so 140 mile-per-hour sustained winds and the pressure has dropped within the last advisory. so there is indication that this storm is strengthening. we have a lot of warm water. the gulf stream is ahead of this storm. that's where the warmest waters are and that's why we think perhaps intensification is possible as it moves closer to the shore line land fall middle of the night, where? >> we start to see the conditions deteriorate in the evening hours and then the closest brush with florida will be in the overnight and into tomorrow morning and look how close it comes. and you mentioned, you know, scraping across land it. doesn't matter if this makes land fall. if the core of the strongest winds are on shore, you'll have hours and hours and hours of a major hurricane on your door
step and you merngzed -- mentioned, i mean, listen, if this goes 50 miles east offshore, that would be a good thing. if it moves 20, 30 miles inland, not a good thing. we have tens of millions of people that are going to be affected by this storm. and this has been a major hurricane for almost a week, category 3 or higher. and look, it remains strong as a category 4 as we get into georgia and then the carolinas and then we have to watch this because there is some indication that it could spin back towards land. so hurricane warnings in effect really for millions of people all up and down the east coast. 11 million people and look at the national hurricane center forecast wind field. these are hurricane force winds on shore, on shore, on shore, on shore, 48, 60 hours. we didn't talk about the storm surge. 10 feet plus. that's above your height.
that's, you know, that could do significant damage and that's why the national hurricane center has put out the dire warnings of this could be life threatening with a storm surge of over 10 feet and that's going to be continuous into georgia and the carolinas. pow power outages, millions of people will have the power out, not just for days but perhaps weeks. so people that didn't evacuate are not going to be able to go anywhere for perhaps days or weeks as people try to get out and rescue them. this is of course the worst case scenario. forecast rainfall, anywhere from 10 to 12 inches and fresh-water flooding and storm surge is the number one killer when it comes to hurricane landfalls. so we're going to be dealing with this all day tomorrow, saturday, and sunday for this vulnerable area along florida and the southeast coast. >> turn around.
don't drown. thank you. we'll come back to her repeatedly. this is the southeastern coast of florida from miami-dade, ft. lauderdale, hollywood, no planes. this is the national plane tracking map we use all the time to see what's happening now. there are no planes. every airport is shut. fort lauderdale, miami international, miami international, palm beaches all shut down. orlando is still going. she'll shut down 8:00 tonight. but certainly, this storm is so big, it's eventually going to bring water everywhere. this is the local radar. you can see the radar loop right here. this is coming out of the keys and this is coming out of broward county. and you can see these bands that are with it. you know, that upper right quadrant, if you're looking at a storm right here. that's the quadrant that's the worst. so at least it's staying that the worst of it will be out here. but the back half of this is nothing to sneeze at. you can see the eye right here. it's hard to tell from this.
well, maybe i can make it a little bigger here. the eye itself is getting smaller. that's normal. as a storm strengthens, the eye gets smaller, the winds wrap toigtder around that eye and the eye becomes smaller. this one is about 16, 17 miles in diameter and appears to be shrinking. that could mean that an eye wall replacement cycle is coming, and we can hope. what happens is the wall, the eye of that storm, those central winds, the worst of it l get tightr and tighter and there's more and more energy and another eye wall forms outside of it. the one on the inside disappears. it's like a snake shedding its skin. and during that period of eye wall replacement, which can go on for hours, the pressure goes up and the winds go lighter. so if you've got 140-mile-an-hour winds during an eye wall replacement cycle, they might get down to 120 or 115 mile-per-hour. the central pressure will rise so it won't be as destructive. we can hope an eye wall
replacement cycle is coming, but there's no way to know exactly when that happens. it could happen long from now. but until it does, unless and until this storm moves to the east, there's big trouble coming in mom's old state. steve is live in florida. >> i got to tell you, it's a little surprising to see how bad this has gotten. still, the worst of it here in sebastian, florida is still 12 hours away. rain coming in at 45 degree angles, the beach behind me as pretty much disappeared. once it does, there's a lot of homes in the way. there's 1.5 million people in this state who have been told that they have to evacuate. and a lot of them are taking that very seriously, on the move. if you're in hotels around here, in the lobbies, what you see here often, a lot of old people, you see walkers, oxygen tanks, wheelchairs, and people are scared. they have to leave.
and they're going where they can. i saw a woman at the front desk in the best western who was afraid she was on the first floor. she wanted to be on the 3rd floor because she thinks the first floor might be under water by the end of the night. there's also been a real -- here. i've talked to three people this morning from manufactured houses, and they said they don't expect to be anything there when they leave. and they just said it as a matter of fact. so people here dealing with tremendous stress, tremendous fear, and often the helderly and often on their own. so a real stressful situation for the next 12 hours. we're hearing these things about evacuate, evacuate, evacuate. at this point, you know, it's hard to stand up out here. the rain and wind has picked up. and for someone to drive in it, it's going to be very difficult. this morning, there were three hour lines at home depot, people boarding up what they can, and everything you need right now,
bottled water, gasoline, all tough to come by. it's a scary time right now. >> steve, i was wondering if they are prepared this reality that we really haven't heard about before. hurricane andrew came through in about four hours, moving at about 30 mooirch, in and out. hurricane katrina moved in at half that speed. not this one. this one, they're predicting in the area where it actually comes ashore, and they think that will be around 3:00 in the morning on friday, saturday morning at 3:00, it's still hurricane force winds. sunday morning at 3:00, it's still hurricane force winds. and it's monday afternoon before hurricane force winds subside, 60 hours of hurricane force winds. how are they going to have emergency workers in that sort of condition? >> yeah, they can't go out at certain wind speeds. and to put those numbers in perspective, when you see a 10-foot storm surge, that's well over 4 feet over my head right now. and if it does hit here at 3:00
in the morning, as possible with 120, 130-mile-an-hour winds, all these trees and roofs will be gone. so if the governor has warned this is the potential for catastrophe. he's opening more shelters, activating more national guard, asking for help from the federal government. he wants generators, power, water, food. we could be in for a real rough ride here along -- a long expanse on the east coast. >> steve, you be careful. hurricane hugo, mount pleasant, north carolina, as far as you can see, nothing but logs. nothing but trees that are now firewood. hurricane andrew, as far as you can see in all directions, nothing but scrap wood. what used to be homes and dead animals and dead people. hurricane katrina in south mississippi, like a nuclear bomb went off. and if this does what they predict that it may, it will be
just like that across the entirety of the east coast florida peninsula. if you've not gone and they told you to go, go. do it now. don't let your children die in your house because you were hoping that it wouldn't be too bad. driving bonus check? ...only allstate sends you a bonus check for every six months you're accident free. silence. it's good to be in, good hands. that just tastes better. fresher. more flavorful. delicious. only one egg with better nutrition- like more vitamins d, e, and omega 3s. and 25% less saturated fat. only one egg good enough for my family. because why have ordinary
for a storm to move along the coast without a really clear idea of where the direct hit will happen. take a live look in daytona beach about 50 miles north and east of orlando, famous spot, daytona speedway, huge spring break and otherwise destination. the space coast not far from there. evacuations already underway. michael is the daytona beach police chief. you get a lot of flack, you know, as news people and police chiefs for telling people they have to leave and their houses don't blow over and they're mad at you. not nearly asat you if they're >> that's correct, shepherd. we have been preaching and preaching to get out, get out now. the window on the opportunity to get out is closing. we were on patrol up here within the last hour and i had a mother outside with two young children and she said to me, i'm going to ride it out, chief. everything's going to be okay. i was like, are you crazy. and we're going to go back every hour on the hour until we
convince her, she's got to get off the peninsula. this isn't anything to play with. this is devastating. people are going to lose lives. there's a catastrophe waiting to happen here. >> i've talked to a number of police officers in south mississippi after it was over, and they talk about going home to home of people they knew and they break into the house and they search the house and most often, they put an x on the door saying nobody's in there. but, you know, every 15th house, they walk in and the old lady from the store is dead in there. and how hard that is for law enforcement officials who are made to save lives. instead, they're carrying corpses. >> and that's what we're trying to do, we're preaching get out and get out there. there's going to be a loss of power. you're going to lose your cell phone. kroo you're going to lose your internet connection. there's going to be severe flooding with the storm surge, and a lot of people aren't understanding that. when you're out here today, a lot of people get it, but as i
drive by the ocean front condos and into the community, there's a lot of peoples cars are still in their driveway, out in their yard doing yardwork and they're like, we're still debating. there is no debate. the time for debate is over. at 6:00 p.m. tonight or a little thereafter, we'll start shulting down the bridge's east side and preventing people from coming up on the peninsula. and i hope to god, people get it and make a beeline and get out of here. >> it's a paradise until it it isn't and it's just not for the next couple of days. you guys have a plan to keep everybody safe. >> we do. 250 officers will be in for the duration. we've put up stops for their families. they can bring their family to a secure location. all employees have that option so they don't have to worry about it. and the officers will be well fed and taken care of. there will come a time tonight, though, where the winds pick up and we will not be able to respond. and it's going to be too late for the residents who have decided to stay and then try to
the search for relief often leads to places like... this... this... or this. today, there's a new option. introducing drug-free aleve direct therapy. a tens device with high intensity power that uses technology once only available in doctors' offices. its wireless remote lets you control the intensity, and helps you get back to things like... this... this... or this. and back to being yourself. introducing new aleve direct therapy. find yours in the pain relief aisle. the full value of your totaled new car. the guy says, "you picked the wrong insurance plan."
this isn't just a florida thing. south carolina and also breaking for hurm hurricane matthew. forecasters say some places could get a foot of rain and the storm said or done anything could hit 5 feet up to here. the governor started ordering evacuations two days ago. this morning, only 175,000 people had evacuated and she needs another 200,000 to get out now. about 200,000 national guard troops are on hand. in all of the areas combined, 6500 national guard members
activated now. we're folly beach. >> yeah, this community was devastated back in 1989 during hurricane hugo so they take the threat of this storm very seriously. you can see them boarding up windows to deal with the heavy winds and then down here, sand bags at the foot of doors to prevent the flood waters from storm surge, hopefully from getting into these businesses here. we spoke with a contractor who was helping to board up these businesses and asked him what he is expecting. listen. >> i think i'd be more worried not so much of the wind but the storm surge. that's where people can get in a lot of trouble. >> now, back on the mainland, the city of charleston has been passing out sand bags to residents and business owners. they ran out. and they're now telling people who need additional sand bags to call the nearest hardware store. >> do you have a sense for why it is that the governor said evacuate two days ago and half
of them haven't done it? >> you know, you're always going to have some people who want to stay with their property. some people say that when they left their property, that it was damaged by the storm and they felt that if they had stayed behind, they could make some spot repairs and prevent the damage from being as severe as it was. but state officials really want to get people out of the low-lying areas and they're doing what they can to make this move as expeditiously as possible. they've reversed the lanes on i 26. in other words, all of the eastbound lanes of i 26 are moving westbound. in fact, all of the lanes are moving westbound between the city of charleston and columbia in the middle of the state. now, there are no -- there are no exits allowed if you're in the reverse lanes along that 100 mile route. and governor nicky haleigh says that you need to fuel up your cars and make sure that you have plenty of gas. but the reverse lanes are
speeding people out of here very quickly. she says traffic is moving along nicely, but people may have to drive for a while before they find a hotel room because they were rapidly booking up throughout the entire state. >> jonathan on folly beach. man, folly beach after hurricane hugo, we spent the night in mount pleasant in the back of a satellite truck and there were so many trees down around us, you couldn't go anywhere for days. they had to cut residents out of their houses there were so many trees. it was like a lincoln log village as far as you could see. there were no stops on any trees. all the tops of all the trees for miles and miles and miles were gone and those had been used as missiles and ended up in peoples beds. that's what happened in hugo. it was not as strong as this storm. this storm is stronger than hugo was. get out. there's hundreds of thousands of people try to get out of harm's
way, i'll speak with somebody who's flat out refusing to leave and i'll ask her why she's staying and if she expects us to cover her funeral. i'll also take you to the national hurricane center to speak with a man in charge of monitoring this storm. he's a very serious person. and in two minutes, an update on the presidential race to what the two candidates are doing in the next few days. hang tight. hang tight. roller derby. ♪ now give up half of 'em. do i have to? this is a tough financial choice we could face when we retire. but, if we start saving even just 1% more of our annual income... we could keep doing all the things we love. prudential. bring your challenges.

all the way to georgia and carolinas. forecasters warn just a 20 mile shift to the left, that could just ruin the whole state. but even if that does not happen, it's a very, very dangerous storm. let's bring in dr. nabb, the director of the national hurricane center and live there with us. there's just no way to pinpoint this. what is the advice for people? >> you need to focus on the hazards and not on the exact path and exact strength of the hurricane. this is a potentially disastrous situation for a large area and i want to highlight the storms hazard. the primary reason people are told to evacuate. this is our prototype storm surge watch and warning. the actual warning will be next year, but this is just as important right now. all these areas from north palm beach all the way up through the rest of the florida coast line and the georgia coast line and portions of south carolina and then a storm surge watch prototype there. this storm surge warning means there's a danger of life threatening storm surge.
and emergency managers know which areas specifically we're talking about, and they have issued evacuation is instructions. you've got to get out if you've been told to evacuate for the surge or because you're in a mobile home in inland areas. that's how we save lives in this scenario. >> been tracking hurricanes a long time. i don't know if i've ever seen this path before. >> this is an awful track. for so many reasons and so many people are going to be impacted by multiple hazards, regardless of exactly where or when the center might come on shore. we think it will come close enough to bring hurricane conditions to much, if not all of this hurricane warning area. and it's not just a coastal event. it's not just about wind. people need to realize, 9 of 10 fatalities historically in u.s. land fall and tropical cyclones have been due to tropical water, either from the storm surge or the inland flooding caused by heavy rainfall. stay off the roads and by tonight in central and northern florida, have your preparations done, conditions going downhill
by tomorrow morning. and folks in georgia and south carolina, heed those evacuation instructions promptly, as well. >> how far out can you forecast? what's the long-term prediction for this thing? >> we do issue a 5-day forecast. our watches and warnings go out 48 hours and 36 hours respectively. we have enough to deal with in the next couple of days beyond saturday night and sunday morning. it could still be offshore. we have plenty of time to see what it might do to land areas after that. >> we wish you all the best down there. thanks so much for all you do for all of us. i want to get to deloris burr halter. she's dumb. she and her husband live just north of west palm beach. i know deloris. deloris and i are friends for years and years and years. what kooum you're not leaveing. >> i don't think we're going to be. you know, we're not that close to the water. >> what, a mile, deloris? >> no, a couple of miles. >> a couple of miles. i'm not close to the water. you're close to the water. you heard the guy say this is
going to be a hurricane force winds event in orlando. >> well, but i think -- i don't think the storm is going to be -- i'm hoping it's not going to be as serious as they're saying. >> why? >> we're fairly well protected here. >> you know, they were hopeful in south miami-dade and kendall and homestead back when andrew. they were very, very hopeful until they were all dead. >> well, let's hope that doesn't happen, shepherd. >> i do hope, but hope is not a strategy. why didn't you come up and visit us for the weekend or something. >> exactly. i should have done that. yep. >> what are you going to do if monday you still don't have any power? >> well, i don't know. i'm not making -- >> do you have candles and batteries? >> we have candles, batteries, food. >> water in the tub? >> everything. you got it. the tub is filled up. yep. >> now, are the cops coming around and making you sign a list so they know how to notify
