7:03 am
so many folks on those high wind or hurricane warnings up around the coast, and check this out. still a tropical storm watch in effect for tampa. look at the coast to savannah, charleston, that's all in the warning at this hour. let me also take you through the timing. jacksonville gets it tonight at 5:00 p.m. i wanted to leave with this, guys, just a moment ago the winds are only 60 some miles per hour currently, a light just blew off the top of the hotel, debris can still fly at you and be dangerous. please don't go outdoors. stay in a safe be back with a whole lot more information. >> you stay safe too, ginger. as we have said, more than 3 million people have been told to evacuate the storm. this will be the most devastating storm to hit jacksonville in 118 years. david muir has more. good morning, david. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. as you heard ginger say, just as we're on the air with "good morning america" this morning the western edge of this eyewall
7:04 am
canaveral, and of course, the concern there was the kennedy space center. as we move northward, this is the area in jacksonville where they say the biggest threat is the storm surge. they're concerned about it up and down the coast and through the carolinas but right here where i'm standing they're expecting up to 11 feet. we'll show you the dangers on the map of that in a moment. first here this morning the pictures coming in of this hurricane already. hurricane matthew slamming into central florida's coastline. >> unfortunately, this is going to kill people. >> reporter: with wind gusts up to 115 miles per hour. >> kind of almost a whiteout condition. >> reporter: the hurricane eye just a few miles now off cape canaveral. at least ten inches of rain expected. >> you can see the water out here. it's blanketed by this rain now. >> reporter: as over 300,000 are without power at this hour. these transformers exploding in vero beach. supplies dwindling. hotels overbooked. the national guard now standing by.
7:05 am
one in jupiter. >> i'm concerned about what's going to happen when the house falls and we're where we're going to go. >> reporter: matthew's path changing planning, even forcing disney world to close its gates for only the fourth time ever in the park's 45-year history. cruise ships docked and thousands traveled with airports empty and more than 3800 flights already canceled here in the u.s. more than 3 million americans now fleeing their homes from florida up to north carolina. fema officials preparing to provide relief with states of emergency now declared in florida, georgia, north carolina and south carolina. the hurricane already devastating the caribbean. running its path through the bahamas. its force ripping the roof right from this home and in haiti, a nation in crisis. at least 122 dead. the coast guard now providing a clearer picture of home after home leveled.
7:06 am
jacksonville, florida, this morning, this is where meteorologists say be very concerned about the storm surge. you can see the ferocity of the waves whipping up behind me already. take a look at the map this morning and you can see actually see the storm surge threat is up and down the coast but right here in the jacksonville area, 7 to 11 feet and keep in mind that's simply the water above land. that is the surge of water up to 11 feet. that does not account for the waves that are expected to come crashing in as the winds go of matthew. as you saw 3 million americans evacuated in this storm. 2.5 million schoolchildren home with their families this morning and i want to check in about a half a mile south of where i am right here with abc's eva pilgrim in st. augustine, this morning. eva, what are the conditions? >> reporter: david right now, we are really seeing the wind and rain pick up. when the gust, big gusts come, they are incredible. i've already lost a hat.
7:07 am
you can see the water behind me. let me move so you can see it. angry this morning, the water. the waves crashing in. there's actually a ten-foot drop right behind me here where the beach erosion has already happened. that's how much beach is already gone. you mentioned the storm surge worried about it here in st. augustine because high tide is in the middle of the afternoon and that's when they're expecting the hurricane to be not too far offshore. they are water to be well over my head in the st. augustine area on the barrier islands. law enforcement went door to door urging people to please get off the island to move further inland. they tell us a lot of people are planning to ride out this storm. those first responders, they have all moved out. they say they are not coming back in until after the hurricane is passed and they feel strongly that it was time for us to move as well to get across that bridge before it's not possible for us to get
7:08 am
so we are shortly, very shortly going to pack up and move to higher ground, david. >> reporter: all right, eva pilgrim, about a half hour from where we're standing south of here, closer to hurt kricane matthew this morning. and you heard eva talk about the beach erosion they're seeing already and that is the real concern here this morning. the winds they're 115 to 120-mile-per-hour wind gusts, it's more the storm surge, these waves behind me up to 11 feet as i mentioned then the waves crashing in over it. it's a threat that we'll continue to watch. george, amy, michael? back to you. >> thanks very much. we also have our jim dolan from our new york station wabc in daytona beach. jim, we can see the wind and rain right there and hear daytona is a ghost town. >> reporter: george, the wind is just starting to kick up. i can't hear you all that well. we mentioned the wind is kicking up. i don't know what this is, but this steel thing just blew up and almost whacked me in the
7:09 am
way, but there's a lot of that kind of debris just getting blown around us. and the winds pick up in daytona beach. you can take a look. joe showed me the palm trees which are blowing hard in this wind. we stepped away a little bit from the hotel to give you an idea how hard the rain is falling. again, the muscle of this storm still pretty far south from where we are. but it is coming this way and you're beginning to see some gusts of wind here that are extremely high at cape canaveral seeing gusts up to 100 miles an hour, higher than that there. cape canaveral, obviously important because that's where nasa launches spacecraft from their rockets, and so lots of heavy wind there, and the rain really picking up now. we're starting to see flooding here and mostly it has been raining much of the night but mostly we are seeing an increase in wind speed. the trees really blowing here in daytona beach.
7:10 am
reporting live from daytona beach where it is really coming down now, i'm jim dolan for abc. george? tobacco -- back to you. earlier i spoke to florida governor rick scott. governor scott, thanks for joining us. what can you tell us about the impact of matthew right now? >> well, george, it's about halfway up our coast off the coast of cape canaveral. about 40 miles. we have seen hurricane-force winds up to 107 miles per hour. it's still, you know, it's not daylight so we d we have been blessed that woe -- we don't have -- we haven't had a direct hit. just hurricane-force winds, we'll see a lot of storm surge. if you're in jacksonville, you still have an hour or two to evacuate. our concern is we're going to have up to 12 feet of storm surge and waves on top of that. it will impact rivers, not just the coast so we've got to be very careful about all the flooding we'll see and often as
7:11 am
with the storm surge it'll come in fast and leave fast so that's why i saw with the hurricane we recently had in the panhandle the water comes in fast and goes out very fast and it can till you. ill youkill you. ill youkill you. >> that storm surge still is dangerous. is it fair to say your state has been spared the worst? >> i have never seen anything like this. we have people in our shelters. no shortages but we have probably less than a quarter of a thousand people without power. they're starting to restore it in miami and in the ft. lauderdale area, and still assessing the damage, though, george. >> and as you say going forward you're concerned about more flooding in the coast and inland. what things you brace for right now? >> well, the biggest thing right now especially going north we're going to see a lot more storm surge than we've seen in the southern or middle part of the state. that's my biggest concern right
7:12 am
been, did everyone take this seriously and evacuate? if you are in the jacksonville area, you still have an hour or so to evacuate. so do it if you have a chance to evacuate. i don't want anybody to be around the storm surge. i watched in the peninsula get ten feet of storm surge. >> planning ahead has made a difference. >> we had evacuation orders for 1.5 million people to move west of the state and we have plenty of people called up 3,500 members of the national guard, and high water vehicles, food, water. so we're ready to deal with this and we'll work in the aftermath. we already have 400,000 people without power. >> one final question, the state of south carolina has extended voter registration because so many lives have been disrupted. why won't you do that? >> george, look, we have the -- we have had plenty of time to
7:13 am
on getting this done. i'm focused on saving everybody's life. the biggest issue for me i want everybody to survive this. >> governor scott, thanks for joining us this morning. >> all right. see you, george. >> and those high winds are also causing a lot of problems already in west palm beach florida where gio benitez is. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, michael. good morning. we are on the back end of that storm so we're still getting a little be the of wind, but i just want to show you that overnight power of the storm, as we pull out here just so you can compare the size of this to me. we're talking about a tree that's at least three stories tall. it was just uprooted right out of the ground. the good news, nobody was here. people were indoors. they were protected. they were safe. nobody was hurt here. but i got to tell you the power outage is a big issue. we learned we've seen more than 350,000 power outages in the
7:14 am
continues up the coast, we're going to probably see even more of these power outages. but right now there's -- this collective sigh of relief here in palm beach, one lieutenant telling us we prepared, we prayed and we were spared. michael. >> thank goodness for that thank you, gio. up to north carolina now. the white house is tracking the storm with president obama warning in a tweet hurricane matthew is as serious as it gets. listen to local officials, prepare, take care of each other. rob marciano in the low country of charleston, south carin serious floods. good morning, rob. >> reporter: good morning, george. take a look at this. this boardwalk, this park typically filled with people walking their dog, taking a jog nearly empty. the governor calling for more evacuations, opening more evacuation routes, for those left today, it might be go time. this morning, time is running
7:15 am
coastline. >> we need to be safe and get out of there. >> reporter: with hurricane matthew's powerful eyewall on track to slam at shores southern state license plates are heading into north carolina. >> we are concerned. we took in everything before we left. >> reporter: many fleeing inland only to find hotels are booked up. the reverse highway lanes will last as long as necessary providing an escape from coastal towns leading to safe havens like this american red cross shelter. >> we are preparing for as many as 4,000, we can house if had this facility. >> reporter: at least 300 school buses sheltering them and 1900 national guard troops are at the ready but officials are concerned too many have decided to stay put and ride out the storm. by thursday morning, only 175,000 people had evacuated. >> there is no excuse to risk your life. >> reporter: a risk some
7:16 am
>> we have decided to stay, because our home and businesses are here. >> reporter: the catalan knows are waiting and watching. >> we need more information. we're not ready yet. >> reporter: well, they may be leaving today because the more information is that that track is likely to come closer to the official forecast now bringing that storm closer to georgia and the carolina coastline and by this time tomorrow, we could be experiencing a direct hit here. michael. >> all right, thank you, rob. and matthew is also causing a lot of problems at airports this mornin has more on that. good morning to you, david. >> reporter: good morning, michael. moving to safety and the number of cancellation growing, even here in washington, d.c. seeing some flights canceled. already for tomorrow, flights are being canceled. if you take just today and tomorrow, more than 2,200 flights canceled. in the past few days, hurricane matthew has led to the cancellation of nearly 4,000 flights and take a look at this.
7:17 am
just empty as all the aircraft are flown away from the hurricane and picture from miami airport shows terminals empty. not an aircraft on the ground. but here's what american airlines wants to do as the storm passes miami. they hope to start getting flights in there later this morning and maybe some departures this afternoon. it depends on how much damage has been done at the airport and whether it remains, so it's going to take really the weekend to get the system back on schedule. >> all right, david, thank you. matthew, affecting so many people but right now impacting florida the most so let's go back to ginger in melbourne, florida, with the latest, ginger. >> reporter: it is really actually very scary in moments here because our hotel was with power all night, just lost power. a light perilously hanging, exploded, and fell off and blew off. a lot going on. trees coming down. not even when the storm passes but i want to take you through
7:18 am
along the coast it goes and just like rob said, just moments ago hugging a little closer to places like savannah and charleston. jacksonville gets it later this afternoon and evening and then by wilmington going off the coast there, later sunday. out by monday, and out of the tropical storm in parts of these, 74 plus-mile-per-hour winds and look at the timing. friday 9:00 pak closing in on charleston and savannah in there and stays tropical storm force or severe close to wilmington. all right. big waves we'll talk about in just a moment, but for now, we have to talk about your weekend
7:19 am
be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. the weekend continues to look great with highs well into the 60s both days. no frost is expected this weekend, though down to the lower 40s. next week, the main theme is for warmer than normal conditions to continue. moisture is very limited with the next front that arrives on monday night. i know everybody is always concerned about our safety. >> reporter: we are definitely safe, protected by a very sturdy building, so we will not put ourselves in any danger, but we will be here covering throughout the show. back to you guys.

charged with shooting and killing his parents. 20-year-old sean freese is facing 2 counts of first-degree murder. police says they found his parents, kevin and donna freese, shot to death in their home in the on davenport's northwest side overnight wednesday. investigators say sean freese planned the killings, but a dog may not have nine lives -- but a dog that survived a river rescue in maquoketa may have more than one. this dog was found stranded at lakehurst dam in maquoketa. she was there for at least 2 days. onlookers suspect the pit-mix had been left there on purpose, possibly because she just delivered puppies. after one failed attempt above the swirling current, a rescue boat saved the dog. you can contact the humane society's office in maquoketa if you're interested in adopting her.

be unstoppably you. welcome back to "gma." all eyes on florida this morning, that is port canaveral, lots of damage there from the wind, just two miles from cape canaveral. and authorities concerned about the high winds there as well. so many structures there that could be damaged by those winds. daytona beach, a ghost town as the storm is hitting this morning. rain all across the state. >> yeah, now st. augustine, major fears there as it moves up the coast. a real concern about storm surge. more than 3 million people have been told to evacuate from florida through the carolinas as the eyewall slams the east coast. and ginger is in melbourne, florida. we have been with her all morning wrong, and that is right in hurricane matthew's path.
7:31 am
>> reporter: yeah. hurricane matthew is obviously very close to us here. we're seeing gusts up to around 60 miles per hour in melbourne. but the eye of that storm is dangerously close to the coast. here's what i want to show you on the radar. from coast to coast, it is moving west at 14 miles per hour. we should get an update from the national hurricane center is within the half hour to tell us whether it drops to a category 2 or not. even if it does, it doesn't matter. it will still do considerable damage rite at the coast. anywhere that comes with that dark color on the radar there. here, i wanted to show you the path and rpm, the futurecast. the stuff at jacksonville, a crucial time where the heaviest rains are starting to fall and brunswick and charleston and more of that friday night early saturday, saturday day through sunday moving across the state line from south carolina into north carolina. and a quick look at the path. i want to emphasize, it is within that cone that you can
7:32 am
as we are right here. i'll be updating you throughout the morning. starting at 8:00 a.m. >> ginger, you are getting blown around. what can you tell us about the path further out? there has been concern that the storm might double back on florida next week? >> reporter: yeah. yeah. the computer models kept trying to turn it back around. everyone was saying, oh, my gosh and has happened in history, it's not unprecedented but as of this morning it looks like it will just sit out in the ocean and then hopefully dissipate so it's looking much weaker, and does not look like it would target again. if it does come back, we will be here telling you about it. >> thank you, ginger. you can see the winds have picked up since the last time we talked to her. back to david muir in jacksonville, florida, where the hurricane's winds could be catastrophic. david, what are you seeing right now? >> reporter: hey, mikeple -- michael. a rapid intensification just within the last 30 minutes right
7:33 am
waves picking up behind me. there's between a 7 and 11-feet storm surge. that's on the land and that doesn't take into account that could happen at high tide, and the wind is going counterc counterclockwise. you will have the waves crashing onto land behind it and to put this into perspective. with superstorm sandy, we were dealing with 9 feet. they are expecting 11 feet here in jacksonville and that's why there are watches. >> that's why evacuations are so important and there's time for so many to get out. look at this footage. storm chasers flying into the eye of hurricane matthew, and i spoke with rick knabb for more on this storm. good morning, rick, with what we know right now with matthew's
7:34 am
damage you're expecting to esee. >> i'm most concerned about what the water could do and not just in terms of damage to structures, but lives. this is a big, major hurricane that is just offshore, and it is fully capable of producing life-threatening storm surge, and if you are in an area that emergency managers have told you to evacuate and there's time to go, you absolutely have to go now. your life could depend on it, and flooding and not just the flooding of structures. if you're in the wrong spots, that can take lives as well. >> you were listening over the the past 24 hours. this is the strongest language i have heard in a long time in terms of getting people to evacuate. tell us why. >> i have used words i haven't used in a long time talking
7:35 am
this could be. because when you have a hurricane not just impacting individuals, but the scope that could unfold here, affecting so many communities and states is what we're concerned about. because we know from hurricane history that water takes 9 out of 10 lives in u.s. tropical systems. that's why we're urging people to heed the instructions. if you live in mobile homes, you need to heed those as well. deadly aspects of water. >> florida has not seen this type of storm in over a decade. jacksonville in more than 100 years. is it fair to say this is a history-making storm? >> absolutely. . matthew will write some history. the key here is that you don't want to be a part of it. i don't want to be writing a report from the national hurricane center that totals up the storm surge and you're one of them. that's part of the history that
7:36 am
to florida right now. what can folks in north carolina, south carolina and georgia expect? >> bottom line is there's a little bit of time left especially in georgia and itsou carolina to get out. the storm surge and flooding from water will be the main concern that threatens lives. >> thank you for that important information. in the caribbean, a scene of destruction. hundreds of people have been killed, and alex perez is in the ba the aftermath of the hurricane. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, amy. after a nearly 24-hour downpour, the rain here has finally stopped as streets are flooded and trees down everywhere and process of assessing damage just beginning. overnight, hurricane matthew lashing the bahamas. the then powerful category 4 storm roaring through nassau leaving behind a trail of destruction. the violence, 145-mile-per-hour winds, sending debris flying.
7:37 am
>> oh [ bleep ]. >> reporter: toppling trees, to power lines, even ripping the side off this hotel. the storm surge so powerful boats sent smashing on to shore. more than 3,000 tourists on this popular island destination seeking shelter in hotel conference rooms, anything to protect them from this deadly hurricane. now residents picking up the pieces. still assessing the damage. thousands still without power. but before hurricane matthew pounded the bahamas, it left behind a dire humanitarian crisis in haiti. across the country, reports of coastal flooding and demolished roads. this morning the coast guard providing a clear picture of the damage hurricane matthew left in its path, crews conducting the first post-storm assessments over haiti. you can see home after home leveled. the united nations moving in helping residents salvage what they can, 21,000 people now
7:38 am
while officials fear there are at least 350,000 in need of immediate assistance. some government officials in haiti saying at least 280 people have died. that number is expected to grow. and it's still unclear when the airport here in nassau will re-open. the long process of cleaning up just starting here. amy. >> all right, alex perez, horrific images. thank you so much for keeping us updated. coming up, hurricane matthew taki donald trump and hillary clinton shutting down their operations in florida, how this storm could shape the election. next. ? we asked people to write down
7:39 am
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. (wolf howls) (screams) ? ?
7:40 am
? ? get outta here! time's up! back of the line! hey. excuse me. what! great sandwich. thanks. ?you didn't have to be so nice? get outta here.
7:41 am
hurricane matthew hitting florida right there. also taking center stage in the race for the white house. just 32 days until the final votes. candidates addressing the storm as they gear for that debate sunday. the stakes high for donald trump. he has fallen behind in the polls and abc's tom llamas has been with him from the start. good morning. >> reporter: both deep in debate prep but keeping tabs on hurricane matthew and trump denying an event he had in new hampshire was a practice run for sunday but it sure looked like one. overnight, donald trump issuing his own hurricane warning. >> it looks like it's a big one and it's going to be a bad one. >> reporter: trump also concerned because of his personal connection with the impact zone. >> we have a lot of friends in florida. a lot of buildings, a lot of investments in florida. a lot of great employees in florida. >> reporter: both the trump and clinton campaigns shutting down offices in florida. clinton tweeting tips from fema
7:42 am
hurricane matthew is a major storm. i urge everyone to follow emergency instructions and evacuate if you're told to. but as they watch the storm both candidates are preparing for sunday's big debate. >> this has nothing to do with sunday. and it's like they make you into a child. >> reporter: in new hampshire trump insisting he was not practicing for sunday's debate. even though he was hosting a town hall the same format as sunday's a countdown clock timing his answers. >> forget debate prep. give me a break. do you really think hillary clinton is debate prepping for three or four days? hillary clinton is resting. >> reporter: but if this was a warm-up, the rules were very lax. the questions mostly softballs. and the event, invite only. and about that timer -- >> i have a clock down on the floor there that says two minutes. >> okay. >> now, do you want me to call you when it goes over two minutes. >> i'll tell you what, if i'm doing well, don't call me.
7:43 am
immediately. in fact, you could go in 30 seconds you could do it, all right? >> all right. >> reporter: i think the rules will be tougher on sunday with martha. now, because of hurricane matthew the clinton campaign had hoped florida would extend voter registration deadline which is next tuesday, but florida governor, rick scott, who is a major trump not extending it because, quote, people have had time to register. >> he said this is all politics but extended them in south carolina ahead of the storm. jon karl right now, jesse palmer, there is concern in the clinton camp bullish about early voting in the carolinas and florida that this might have an impact. >> absolutely, george. we have seen in the past how close races can be in florida. every single vote counts. so the clinton team has asked for that extension on voter registration and think there are tens of thousands more who would
7:44 am
some may be prevented from doing so as a result of this storm and may have an effect on early voting. >> we saw donald trump at that town meeting. he's also signaling that he could be focusing a lot more on policy than the personal attacks on sunday. at least that's what he's saying now. >> reporter: he has said directly in an e-mail statement to page 6 of "the new york post." he does not intend to get personal regarding bill clinton's past infidelities. that he wants to focus on the issues. i know that's what his team is saying as well. the thing is, george, as we have seen with donald trump, we just don't know what is going to happen during the course of that 90-minute debate. >> we know he needs a powerful performance. >> he absolutely needs to change the trajectory of this race. if you look, george, at virtually every poll, national le tos and it the polls in all of the key states, he has lost ground since that last debate. that last debate was not good for him. he needs to change this. if the trajectory stays the same

7:49 am
some that i -- may think it's the high winds, but storm surge is actually the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane. >> reporter: that's why more than 3 million were told to evacuate the coast. >> to have someone drive by this morning and say, you have to leave and there's going to be a 20-foot wall of water in your house was pretty scary. >> reporter: as the storm makes its way up the east coast another big threat flying debris. watch this lab simulation of a piece of wood thrown at hurricane force. experts say you can protect your home and your those windows up with plywood or installing impact resistant glass. so we have the storm surge, the wind but also like dr. knabb said, we also have to deal with inland flooding. 9 of 10 deaths are from water. not just the storm surge, but also the rainfall. that combination, especially in georgia and south carolina is going to be potentially deadly because this is where the rainfall is really going to be
7:50 am
a front and the jet stream that will interact with matthew so we expect to see over ten inches of rainfall in this area in the next 24 to even 48 hours so that will rise the rivers that all funnel down here and you've got that onshore flow and the way the coastline is shaped kind of a pocket there, and this persistent east wind will pile up and bulldoze that storm surge so 7 to 11 feet potentially and more than that. so dangerous situation going to be unfolding here in the next 24 to 36 hours. i'll toss it back to you. amy, you are familiar with this area. practically nobody there. >> as you know, that's a good thing. when i lived there, my elevation on my house was nine. talk about those storm social medias and what can happen and ginger showed it so well so etch, get out while you still can and rob, thank you very much. coming up next in our next hour much more on hurricane matthew as it strikes florida and moves up the coast. our team and ginger is here covering it all.

8:51 am
birth of a nation" and the wife of nat turner and in this scene he comes to see her while he's on the run. take a look. >> killed people everywhere for no reason at all for being black. they say the killing won't stop till they get you. >> i mean, that is a very powerful scene in the movie. and that camera is all on you. just your face and how was it to see yourself on >> it's pretty insane actually. especially in a film like this one. you know, i'm used to watching "how to get away with murder" which is, you know, like this really fun show that we do, but seeing something like this being a part of telling a story that is so crucial to understand about our history as black people in this country is just -- it's -- it's just so necessary and such a very visceral way for me and i'm just so grateful i got to take on this part.
8:52 am
did it very well and armie hammer was here and we saw you on the auction block. that was your first day of filming. that was a heavy first day. >> yeah, and that wassen extremely heavy day. i didn't know how that was going to be for me emotionally. i've never portrayed this kind -- i hate saying character because she was a real -- she was a real person that, you know, was living and breathing on this earth and i wte honor her but that was really terrifying to have to step up there and do that and it feels humiliating and you understand immediately the kind of fear that these people lived through but i had to remember that this was her reality and she's stronger than i am and i had to let that kind of just enter me and allow that to exist on the screen. >> and this film won the sundance grand jury prize, had a record sale price. there's a lot of oscar buzz
8:53 am
take it in. don't be shy about it. [ applause ] how do you feel about that? >> i mean, it is very nice when people say nice things but the thing that means the most to me is that people will see the film and that it will educate them about a part of our history that i didn't even know and i'm so embarrassed to say that and i hope they understand that we -- we have that kind of power inside of us and we can all access and tap into our greatness and walk in that. >> well, you know what, you're walking in it the "how to get away with murder," can't wait to see you there but you can go see "the birth of a nation." it's in theaters now and we'll be right back, everybody.
