that's never been conquered. the urgent search right now, why they never returned. >> they don't have gps with them. we have no idea of where they're at on the mountain. they are definitely low on food and fuel. >> rescue efforts intensifying this morning with time running out. and college football frenzy. this season is kicking off in just hours right here on abc. the top six teams in football giving it all on the gridiron. >> i really can't recall an opening weekend with such significant matchups. breaking down the matchups this morning. hey, good morning, and welcome to labor day. weekend. we had better news for you. a stormy finale for of the east coast. >> hermine which hit florida as a hurricane, well, it is now churning off the carolinas and virginia and there's the video, the storm bringing high winds
>> hundreds of thousands of people have lost power and this thing is far from over. the northeast coastline is coming up next. these are some live pictures from asbury park, new jersey, where they are bracing. yes, they are. we also have a live look at kill devil hills in north carolina. and then we have virginia beach which is where we find rob who is leading our team coverage this morning. rob, good morning to you. >> good morning, paula. here in virginia beach they are beyond bracing. they are in it. winds gusting over 50 miles an hour and it's been a rough last five or six hours. look at this ocean behind me. i mean, waves 10, 15 feet, just pounding this pier. we're actually out in low tide and it's coming in so all this water will be pushing forward and we will be moving back. this is not the labor day weekend these folks were hoping for. this storm has been relentless. overnight tropical storm hermine barreling up the east coast. packing with it 60-mile-an-hour winds slamming beaches along the carolinas. carrying wind gusts strong
truck and knock down trees leaving some roads impassable. adding to hermine's fury a reported tornado whipping through income's outer banks leaving several injured. woo. >> we're getting multiple calls in reference to house collapse. quite a few subjects in the water. unknown how many injuries. >> reporter: in wrightsville, the storm washed away any labor day beach plans for tourists and in myrtle beach, south carolina, waves of water rushing through streets and flooding homes and this morning, thousands are without power in the southeast. the storm now churning toward virginia where the governor has declared a state of emergency. up and down the east coast, millions are bracing for the impacts and heading to hardware stores getting prepared just in case. >> people are inquiring about the generators, batteries, flashlights, everything. >> hermine ripped through florida causing one death and leaving more than 300,000 without power.
some coastal towns underwater. the hurricane the first to make landfall in the state in over a decade. >> ferocious, absolutely ferocious. >> reporter: most in florida certainly were hoping that that hurricane-free streak would hold but that's over and folks here certainly hoping this thing would go out to sea eventually will but it's going to stall and that's going to be bad news for just about everybody. let's take a look at the radar and the tracking of this storm. it's lopsided. most of the action to the north of it where we are. the official center of it will be offshore as we go through time. look at that radar, and with all waves and wind too. all right, the tropical storm warnings, look at this, extend all the way up to northern new jersey on the coast there and tropical storm watches now for long island and connecticut. that means that tropical storm conditions are possible in the next 48 hours but likely in through virginia because once it gets offshore it gets into this complicated situation where it actually may very well strengthen back to hurricane strength but not be a true hurricane, but the effects will
surge are going to impact this area, the potomac, the chesapeake, delmarva and long island and cape cod. look at this -- look at the winds north of the action. and how everything kind of is thrown back into the coastline so we're looking at dangerous coastal flooding for new jersey and in some areas, especially the southern part ot if, it could rival that of hurricane sandy. beach erosion obviously is going to be a big problem, as well. high tide is here around 11:00. what, it floods here on a good day, so you can imagine just how bad the flooding is going to be at 11:00 this morning and 11:00 tonight and probably another cycle through tomorrow and several cycles not just here but up the coast in through new jersey. it's going to be a long weekend for many and, paula, it doesn't matter this thing isn't going to make landfall across the northeast. it's going to sit and spin and expand and along the immediate
>> yeah, hermine is spreading a large net. hermine is spreading a large net, i was saying, rob, we know you're taking all the safety precautions and check in with you in a little bit. thank you very much, rob. and the force of hermine is being felt all the way up the east coast as rob said. it is now threatening to pound coastal new york and new jersey with heavy surf, beach erosion and dangerous rip currents. abc's eva pilgrim is in toms river, new jersey, for us this morning where warnings are in effect right now. eva, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula. we're here at ortley beach and you can see is already picking up this morning. if you take a look out here at the surf, the waves also kicking up. much higher this morning. this is the northern far northern fringe of hermine that we're feeling. we're seeing the first clouds and gusts from the storm which is as you heard rob talk about still south of here and this wind is expected to increase over the next 24 to 36 hours. people here keeping a close watch as this storm is expected to be near the jersey shore and
flooding, beach erosion and on top of the damaging winds and today ahead of the worst of the storm, the major issue here is going to be rip currents and safety officials really warning people if you hit the beach today, to be extra careful. dan. >> eva, thank you. we will be covering this storm throughout the show this morning and all day long on abcnews.com but we're going to turn now to the race for the white house. the fbi releasing secret documents from their investigation into hillary clinton's e-mails including their interview with clinton herself, and abc's mary bruce is on the story from washington. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, good morning, dan. these interview notes offer a unique glimpse inside the grilling hillary clinton received here exposing new details about how she and her team handled classified information and helping to explain why the fbi director has said their actions were extremely careless. this morning, 58 previously secret pages revealing what hillary clinton says she knew about classified
e-mail server and how much she did not know. clinton telling investigators she relied heavily on her staff to mark and handle classified information, and when tested during a 3 1/2-hour interview said she did not know that the letter "c" on e-mails like this meant classified. clinton also said she did not ask for permission from the state department to use private e-mail. >> it had been done by my predecessors. it was permitted. i didn't have to ask anyone. >> reporter: the unsealed complete picture yet of an issue that is dogging her campaign from the start. >> it wasn't the best choice. i made a mistake in that was a mistake. i'm sorry about that.
i take responsibility. >> reporter: did you wipe the server? >> what, like with a cloth or something? >> reporter: as part of the investigation they requested the team hand over 13 devices but her lawyers couldn't find any of them. a clinton aide recalled destroying two of them by breaking them in half or hitting them with a hammer.
charge clinton with any crime but -- >> there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information. >> reporter: now the clinton campaign says it is pleased with the release of these documents but donald trump not surprisingly is pouncing saying in a statement that clinton's answers to the fbi defy belief. and that after reing these documents, he doesn't understand how she was able to get away from prosecution. dan and paula. mary, thank you. for more let's bring in matthew dowd. hey, matthew, good morning. >> good morning. >> how badly does this hurt her and her campaign? >> i think it hurts her pretty badly. not -- it's not lethal. it doesn't sort of take away the election, but what it does
is it totally feeds the narrative in the story line can you trust her and is she the status quo and this whole story feeds that. it's amazing to watch. here's somebody that every time you think she's about to score using a college football
some way or she throws an interception. this is an election where we have two candidates that are fundamentally distrusted and disliked by a majority of the country and we'll ultimately have the pick, so i would say watch the third parties as we go in the course of this. >> you could argue trump was also fumbling the ball on many occasions but speaking of trump he'll be speaking at an african-american church, the first time he's spoken to, you know, a mostly african-american crowd but these questions and answers are heavily scripted. is this going to be enough to sway the minority vote for him? >> he's going to detroit and he's going to try this, i think, his first time as you say he's done this. i don't think it is going to have an effect. these one-off trips never have an impact on either side. i think what you have to do, he would have to spend the next 60 days having outreach so to convince voters who are leaning or definitely against him that they should consider him, one day, one speech, one series of questions isn't going to solve a fundamental problem he has with minority voters. >> matt dowd, thank you very much. always great to have you here.
now to the latest on that stanford athlete whose sexual assault sentence sparked national outrage. we're talking about brock turner. he is back home in ohio after serving three months of his six-month sentence, this as we're learning more about the young woman he attacked and how she is doing and matt gutman reports. >> reporter: brock turner walked out of this northern california jailhouse having served just 90 days of his six-month sentence for three counts of sexual assault. he wouldn't take questions as he navigated the gauntlet of reporters. >> did you apologize -- >> reporter: nor would he at this san francisco area hotel. >> are you going to apologize, brock? >> reporter: he was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman in march near these dumpsters outside a stanford university party. these images show turner just minutes after his arrest. his flannel shirt torn, abrasions on his face, hands and torso after he had been tackled by good samaritan carl arndt. was he struggling?
definitely trying to get loose. >> reporter: turner faced a maximum 14-year sentence. the prosecution asked for six years. but turner would be sentenced to only six months in jail and serve half of that. >> it wasn't taken seriously as a problem, and i think that's what happens when violence is committed against women. >> reporter: and according to professor michele dauber, triggering a new fear in his victim. you've known the victim for a long time. yes. >> how is she faring? >> well, i mean she underwent a very, very traumatic and serious sexual assault. every time she leaves the house and she sees a tall blond man with short hair from behind, she's going to be fearful. that's him. >> reporter: turner is now back in ohio where he has five days to register as a sex offender and will have to register every 90 days for the rest of his life. matt gutman, abc news, san jose, california. our thanks to matt gutman. let's check the other headlines this morning and for
>> hey good morning to you, dan, paula, sara. good morning, everyone. we begin were breaking news from atlantic city where police are reporting an officer there has been shot and wounded in the garage of caesar's casino. police say a suspect has died in the gunfire. they're calling it an active investigation. police officers search that scene right now. and shots were fired at a high school football game in tulsa, oklahoma, friday night. one teen was wounded and is in the hospital. a suspected shooter, also a teenager and three teens in police custody this morning. police say that a fight between the game was suspended, the football game and the stadium evacuated. the union for police officers who work security for the san francisco 49ers home games says its members may boycott working the games for the team if they don't discipline colin kaepernick. he came under fire for refusing to stand during the national anthem and cited police brutality against african-americans, one of the reasons for his protest. we don't have comments from the police departments which are in
and this morning, an intensive search for a suspected murderer in las vegas who escaped police custody, 25-year-old alonzo perez was left alone in an interview room on friday and apparently twisted his handcuffs until they broke free and once he got loose, perez stole a truck and fled. perez has a long criminal record. authorities warn that he is considered armed and dangerous. an amazing rescue from the ruins of that deadly earthquake in italy. nine days after that devastating firefighters pulled out a golden retriever named romeo from the debris. the dog shaking off the dust and wagging his tail. seeming fine. rescuers were helping romeo's owners retrieve belongings when they heard barking under the damaged home and got to that dog and rescued him. >> you can see the thought bubble above his head. who's got some kibbles. >> and bits.
and police say check this one out. two children in washington state couldn't wait to go see grandma so took the family car and tried to drive themselves to the house. they were 3 and 5 years old. >> what? >> they somehow managed to drive the car into an intersection where they hit another vehicle. no one, however, was injured. >> that's so scary. >> isn't that amazing. not sure whether the parents will face charges. amazing. finally, some high school students trying to do the surf near dana point got the surprise when they saw who or rather what was swimming with them. check this out. it's not a it's not a seal. it's a deer in the water. the surf coach said he was afraid the animal would drown so he was able to coax him or her back to shore. back to shore in safe. >> that's actually not bambi, sara. >> drunk bambi somehow made it into the water. >> what did you say? >> drunk bambi. >> we know rob is not going near that water because it's pretty treacherous, so let's go back to rob who is on the beach in virginia beach. rob, good morning.
the wind is picking up overnight and damaging winds down to our south. all sorts of problems with hermine here and you see the ocean behind me. this is just -- this is just intense stuff. seafoam. there's really nobody on the beach nor should they be and the ongoing message you heard eva asay on this labor day weekend. don't come into the water, rip tides will be an issue. hawaii, boy, they've had a stretch as well. had to deal with madeline. now here comes lester. a the island. it should miss them pretty easily to the north but hurricane watches are posted for maui and oahu for potentially hurricane conditions but mostly i think big waves, big swells and see some coastal flooding with that. across the northwest a cool shot of air coming in. a little drier, as well. gusty winds with this front feeling like fall across the pacific northwest and actually pretty nice weather across the midsection of the country. if you're in between the rockies and basically what is left of
good-looking saturday. so enjoy. that's a quick check. a definite saturday morning is in order. we'll experience temperatures in the low 50s to start off, but will warm into the 60s and close to 70 by late morning. we've got clear skies out there for the most part which allowed for us to get so cool, but these clear skies will allow for us to warm through the day as well. if you catcho downtown cedar rapids farmers market then grab the jacket and enjoy the weather >> just like that. >> another update on hermine a little bit later in the program. 60-mile-an-hour winds. sara, i know you love the beach. i have cleared this beach out. you and me, baby. this saturday afternoon. come on down and bring the
>> so generous, rob. >> i mean, if rob is inviting i'd be willing to go but now to the official opening weekend for college football. we're kicking things off with a look at the teams to watch and what is sure to be a hard fought road to the national championship. ryan smith is at lambeau field with all the action we can look forward to this ncaa season. good morning, ryan. >> good morning, sara. i'm ready to put on the pads. look at these guys. they're fired up. for nearly nine months college football fans have been salivating for this. season opening weekend and the hottest ticket iri i mean we're talking about 80,000 strong fans packing this stadium for lsu/wisconsin, one of a slate of top ranked matchups on what some are calling college football's greatest kickoff weekend ever. college football, kicking off the season with a bang. defending champions ohio state headlining the slate featuring all six of the top teams in college football. >> i really can't recall an opening weekend with such
>> reporter: amping up the hype marvel teaming up with the ncaa to capture the epic clashes in comic book form. the usc trojans looking to turn the turf red with number one ranked alabama's crimson tide. it's a challenge quarterback max brown doesn't take likely. >> i don't think they have a weakness when you're watching film. >> i can promise you this, the speed and athletic ability of usc will challenge alabama. >> reporter: but short of actual superheroes, the most powerful image on saturday will be the battlegrounds themselves. the hallowed lambeau field, hosting the wisconsin badgers against heisman hopeful leonard fournette and the lsu tigers, but for any tigers hoping to reenact the traditional lambeau leap, a sharp warning from coach les miles. >> i promise you, if anybody jumps into the lambeau leap, they'll end up with their thumb out to see if they can get a ride home.
year's third place finish and lock up this year's college football's playoff national championship. >> we're in a for a special season. >> reporter: and every week matters. >> oh, yeah, it's going to be a big week, and these guys are already fired up. now, look, lsu, lsu, those guys over there, these guys hold the edge of the matchup. lsu is undefeated against wisconsin. anything can happen in college football. that's the beauty of it. everybody starts undefeated and has a chance and espn by the way, this is just the tip of the iceberg. they will broadcast 100 consecutive hours of college gridiron action. so for the rest of the week it's all college football all the time. dan and paula, better get those six days lined up now. >> this is the only time of the year when college students have energy at this time of the morning. >> because i don't think they actually went to bed. did any of those students go to bed? >> these guys -- they didn't.

sapna parikh joins us with more. so, sapna, thanks for joining us. when i go to the store i'm looking for one that says anti-bacterial. you're saying that is not going to exist anymore. why athe fda doing this? >> well, they're banning 19 anti-bacterial ingredients in these over-the-counter body washes and soaps and they're doing it for two reasons saying, number one, there is not enough proof they're safe to use every day for a long time and not enough proof to prove they're any better than just soap. they said okay to these companies 40 years ago. you have to give us the science by september 2016 and they didn't and that's why we're seeing this now. >> who is not happy about this is the american cleaning institute. they issued a statement saying "washing the hands with an antiseptic soap can help reduce the risk of infection beyond just providing by washing with anti-bacterial soap and water." if they remove this agent, aren't we going to get sick >> even the american academy of pediatrics recommends plain old soap and water.
anti-bacterial ants may disrupt certain hormones in the body. also that we're overkilling bacteria that we may be creating drug resistant bacteria and we know plain old soap works. we also know that duration matters. 20 seconds is how much you're supposed to wash for 20 seconds and that does work. >> what about hand sanitizers. are they going away. they ary. >> >> not right now. the hand sanitizers and wipes are staying but the fda is looking that also but may see a ban on those. thanks for coming in. and "pop news" is next. in.
