5:38 pm
dangerous and quickly those spaghetti computer models, we will be watching them. they should come in more agreement, hoping this trend continues east. >> just a reminder that it is all over the place. it is looking more encouraging tonight. >> reporter: correct. >> ginger, thank you. i know you'll have more on "gma." the hurricane, as you mentioned, already hitting the bahamas, and here are the images coming in tonight. the wicked winds, sheets of rain. palm trees bending in the winds. our team there on the scene. also, the families up and down the coast preparing their homes because for so many, the damage from superstorm sandy still, of course, so fresh in their minds. encouraging track from ginger. abc's gio benitez with the pictures of the damage already and the hurricane those families are still getting ready for. >> reporter: tonight, the extremely dangerous category 4 storm batters the bahamas. hurricane joaquin ravaging these atlantic islands for an estimated 24 hours. abc's linzie janis on the ground in nassau. >> joaquin is wreaking havoc. right now, the eye of the storm battering the islands to the south and east of here, with wind gusts up to 130 miles per
5:39 pm
hour. people here are worried sick about their loved ones. >> reporter: as the storm unleashes its fury there, here in the u.s., the east coast is battening down the hatches. five states of emergency tonight. north carolina, south carolina, virginia, maryland and new jersey. all fearing the storm could strike anywhere. >> now is the time for you to begin to prepare for hunkering down and dealing with the storm. >> reporter: nearly every coastal state reeling from the last 24 hours of severe weather, even before joaquin comes near. at least one dead in south carolina. and rainfall records broken in massachusetts and maine. here in new jersey, residents are thinking about those devastating images seen after sandy hit in 2012. >> i'm very nervous. >> reporter: homeowner judy lamastra's home, shredded by sandy. she just finished repairs weeks ago. this took such an emotional toll on you, i'm sure. >> very much so. yeah, everybody in town. we're still, you know, trying to come back from it.
5:40 pm
>> reporter: she's taking the lessons she learned from superstorm sandy, turning off her gas to prevent fires, and trying to stop that water before it gets inside. >> if you think maybe you're going to get flooding, sandbags around the doors and any openings would be helpful. >> reporter: and david, tonight here, it seems everywhere you turn, you see these stilts under construction, and all of those homes destroyed by sandy being completely rebuilt. so many people here hope that storm goes east, david. >> we're hoping, too. gio, thank you. meantime, as i mentioned, joaquin is not the only concern tonight. the other major storm already hitting, authorities describing this storm as potentially life-threatening, perhaps historic. more than a foot of rain in some places. these are the pictures from charleston, south carolina. a restaurant under water. all the way up north to massachusetts. flooded roads outside boston. this is different from the hurricane. meteorologist rob marciano is in virginia beach for us tonight. rob? >> reporter: david, over the past ten days, virginia beach and the surrounding areas had a lot of this. relentless wind, pounding surf and rain.
5:41 pm
they can't take anymore rain. they're going to get more of it with this next system, independent of joaquin. take a look. we start the maps tonight. roll them right through saturday and saturday's going to be the day, really, when the heavy stuff comes in. it will tap some of that tropical moisture. so, we've got flood watches posted for a good chunk of the mid-atlantic. coastal flood watches all the way up to long island. could see a foot of rain on top of the foot they already saw last week, david. that will cause potentially historic and life-threatening flooding. david? >> rob tracking this rainstorm for us tonight. rob, our thanks to you and the entire weather team tonight. in the meantime, we move onto another developing story. this one involving the u.s. and russia and the russian air strikes over syria. a new round tonight. the new images coming in. a second straight day now. tonight, the u.s. and russia now holding talks on syria. russia initially claiming they were targeting isis. but tonight, major questions about russia's true targets. abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz again tonight. >> reporter: overnight, russian
5:42 pm
war planes, one after another, launched from a syrian air base, dropping bombs largely on targets where isis is not even operating. russia's's foreign minister tod strongly rejecting the charges that the air strikes are aimed at opposition forces. some backed by the u.s., who are fighting against syria's brutal dictator, and russia's ally, bashar al assad. >> very distorted and perverted perception. >> reporter: the russian military did finally confer today via a secure video conference with u.s. counterparts at the pentagon, to begin to coordinate movements of its war planes in order to avoid any collisions with u.s. and coalition aircraft. the pentagon presented an initial proposal to enhance safety, prevent miscalculations and avoid actions or activities that could escalate tensions. >> all right, so, let's bring in martha raddatz tonight, and martha joins us now. i know one of the reasons the u.s. so concerned, martha, these
5:43 pm
aircraft are not using precision weapons? >> reporter: they are not, david. it looks like they are using so-called dumb bombs, that are missing the targets. that can, of course, cause greater civilian casualties. all of it meaning this civil war that we thought couldn't get any worse, now has. david? >> all right, martha raddatz with us again tonight. martha, thank you. and martha, as you are aware, we have another developing story. this one from afghanistan. a u.s. defense official tonight confirming that an american c-130 military airplane crashed near the airport in jalalabad. no word on casualties or whether enemy fire is to blame. we'll stay on this story, as well. we move on tonight, the race for 2016. new revelations about hillary clinton's e-mails. word that russian-based hackers tried to infiltrate her private server at least five times. part of a wide-spread phishing scam. critics say a sign of just how insecure that server was. tonight, the clinton campaign, though, saying there is no evidence she opened any of those infected e-mails. meantime, on the republican front, donald trump on a new tear over two of his rivals
5:44 pm

5:45 pm
oh, he's my dear friend. wonderful, just wonderful. they hate each other. but it's political [ bleep ]. do you understand? it's true. >> reporter: bush says that's ridiculous and trump needs to grow up. >> i'm pretty sure marco can put his big boy pants on. i know i can. donald seems to have a harder time taking criticism and he probably needs to put on his big boy pants, too. >> reporter: tom llamas, abc news, new york. >> tom, our thanks again to you tonight. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this thursday. the big change today involving your credit cards. the new security chip. what you need to know right now about using your card. and what we didn't know here. why you should keep some of your old credit card accounts open. it could actually save you money later. rebecca jarvis standing by. the new headline tonight about dunkin' donuts that is going to have a lot of dunkin' donuts lovers upset. and we've got a big new clue about the mystery powerball winner. call us! the lucky ticket bought just hours before those numbers were drawn. we'll be right back. i'm caridee. i've had moderate to severe plaque psoriasis most of my life.
