xarelto. good morning, america. new overnight, hermine's fury. the tropical storm battering the south. now marching up the east coast. a fallen tree splitting this home in half. the watches and warnings this morning from north carolina to connecticut. >> we are now offering and have been informed that we are having life-threatening storm surges. >> 20 million people in the crosshairs. team coverage of this dangerous storm and the labor day washout. e-mail investigation. the fbi's secret pages revealed. what hillary clinton says she knew about classified information on her private e-mail server. agents giving her a test, did she know that "c" meant classified. missing on the mountain.
7:01 am
two experienced climbers attempting to scale a peak 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. ♪ you can't stop me, no 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. >> espn's kirk herbstreit breaking down the matchups this morning. hey, good morning, and welcome to labor day weekend. we wish we had better news for you. the summer is coming to a stormy finale for much 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
7:02 am
and massive waves. >> 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 are 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
7:03 am
enough to rip the side off this truck and knock down trees leaving some roads impassable. adding to hermine's fury, a reported tornado whipping through north carolina's outer banks leaving several injured. >> 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 washing 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. >> reporter: hermine ripped through florida causing one death and leaving more than 300,000 without power. in its wake leaving parts of some coastal towns underwater. the hurricane the first to make landfall in the state in over a decade.
7:04 am
>> 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 that this thing san jose sharks will -- 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. we've got big-time waves and wind too. 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
7:05 am
hurricane, but the effects will be the same. the winds, the waves, the storm surge are going to impact this area, the potomac, the chesapeake, the delmarva and long island and cape cod. look at this -- look at the winds here 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 of it, it could rival that of hurricane sandy. beach erosion obviously is going to be a big problem, as well. high tide is here at around 11:00. the tidewater area, i tell you 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 again tonight and probably another cycle through tomorrow so several cycles of high hide here, 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 shoreline it's going to be a brutal next couple of days. >> yeah, hermine is spreading a
7:06 am
large net. hermine is spreading a large net, i was saying, rob, and we know that you're taking all the safety precautions and we'll 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 the wind 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 stay a while, a couple of days even raising concerns of
7:07 am
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're gonna 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
tv-commercial
7:08 am
about classified information on her private 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 one 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 interview notes offer the most complete picture yet of an issue that has dogged clinton's campaign from the start. >> it wasn't the best choice. >> 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 clinton's 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.
7:09 am
ultimately the fbi found there was not enough evidence to 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 reading these documents, he doesn't understand how she was able to get away from prosecution. dan and paula. >> that story is not going away. mary, thank you. for more let's bring in abc political analyst 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 is 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
7:10 am
weekend, she fumbles the ball in 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 really 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 sort of 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.
7:11 am
>> great to be here. >> yeah, thank you, matt. 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 abc's 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. >> brock, brock. >> 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? was he fighting you?
7:12 am
>> yeah, i mean, he was struggling or he 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, 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 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 that as always it's ron
7:13 am
claiborne. good morning, sir. >> hey good morning to you, dan, paula, sara. good morning, everyone. we begin with breaking news this morning 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. more breaking news. reports of a magnitude 5.6 earthquake in north central oklahoma. people in missouri, "architectural digest," texas even as far away as los angeles all saying they felt the quake at 7:02 central time this morning. authorizes say they are still assessing the damage. we have no word of any injuries. and the union for police officers who work security for the san francisco 49ers home games says its members may boycott working the games if the team doesn't discipline colin kaepernick. he came under fire for refusing to stand during the national anthem and cited police brutality against african-americans as one of the reasons for his protest.
7:14 am
we don't have comments from the police departments which are in santa clara county. 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 by police on friday. he 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 quake, check this out, 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 some 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. like who's got some kibble. >> and bits. >> in italian, though. >> ah ch.
7:15 am
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. these kids 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. no word -- >> that's so scary. >> isn't that amazing. -- on whether the parents will face any charges. amazing. finally, some high school students trying to surf near dana point and got a surprise when they saw who or rather what was swimming with them. check this out. it's not a dolphin. 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 safe, happy ending. >> drunk bambi somehow made it into the waterment >> 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. >> good morning, again, guys.
7:16 am
it's blowing sideways here. 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 that's been the ongoing message, you heard eva say, on this labor day weekend. don't come into the water, riptides will be an issue. hawaii, boy, they've had a stretch as well. had to deal with madeline. now here comes lester. a couple of hundred miles from 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 bit drier, as well. some 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
7:17 am
hermine here, you got a very good-looking saturday. so enjoy. that's a quick check. good saturday morning, i'm meteorologist lisa argen. we're waking up to partly cloudy skies. we'll look for a warming trend to start on labor day. the summer heat returns into next week. that could be good news for some of you. 68 today in oakland, yes, cooler than yesterday. 71 in fremont. look for 75 in san jose. the >> just like that. we'll have 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 cooler. >> you're so generous, rob. >> i mean, if rob is inviting i'd be willing to go but now to

7:32 am
back home are holding out hope. overnight a desperate search for two missing climbers. lost while attempting to summit the face of a treacherous peak that has never been climbed. >> they don't have gps with them. we have no idea of where they're at on the mountain. >> reporter: expert alpinists kyle dempster and scott adamson disappearing after a snowstorm nearly two weeks ago. they were taking on the ultra steep north face of ogre ii in north pakistan. the trip, expected to take five days total, but the men haven't been seen since just a day into the climb. their headlamp spotted halfway up the peak but 24 hours after that, a storm rolling in. that storm not letting up. helicopters grounded for nearly a week and friends know time is running out. >> you can imagine the pit in your stomach every time you get an update that says helicopters can't fly. snow, clouds. >> reporter: the pair attempted this same climb last year. the trip nearly killing both of them after they fell hundreds of
7:33 am
feet to the glacier below. family and friends now hoping the men will come out alive this time too. >> they were more than confident that they could go back and finish what they had started. we have to believe of the best case scenario that they got caught in the storm, they realized how bad it was and they've dug a snow cave and they're just waiting out the weather. >> reporter: and supporters started a go fund me page to help pay for the rescue mission. in just 72 hours, get this, close to 5,000 people have given over $185,000 to try to get these climbers home. rescuers we're told are trying to stay positive but so far no signs of the men. dan and paula. >> we're thinking about their families this morning. lauren, thank you. now we're going to talk about the weather closer to home and specifically in virginia beach where rob is taking a look at and tracking tropical storm hermine, which is churning up the east coast right now. hey, rob. >> hey, dan, forgive me for looking over my shoulder.
7:34 am
but i'm a little closer than i typically like to be when the tides roll in. i want to show you this amazing image. these waves are just rolling in against this pier and just pounding this beach. they're just being higher and higher as the storm rolls in and this storm surge and these waves are just going to get worse as the day progresses. this obviously our big weather story. has been for two weeks, a relentless storm making landfall as a hurricane in florida and then just pounding the southeast. now here we are in the carolinas and virginia beach and the tidewater area where it's giving us a hard time. here's the radar. there's rainfall now and the winds are stretching north into cape may, in through delaware and in through new jersey and that's where it will continue to be. flash flooding. yeah, we've had 9 inches of rain in parts of north carolina and with more rain coming through, another 4 or 5 inches in spots as the storm moves offshore and then just sits there for the weekend. so wind's going to be an issue, flooding's going to be an issue, across much of the east coast including new jersey right through monday. but if you go 20 miles inland
7:35 am
not going to be too bad, just breezy. not good for business and causing all sorts of cancellations for festivities on this labor day weekend. good saturday morning, i'm lisa argen. waking up to cloudy skies right now, sunshine today and breezy. low 80s inland. the warm-up arrives labor day this weather report r day this weather report is brought to you by edward jones and just as that is said, boy, it's really picking up here. dan and paula, back up to you. it's not going to be quite this bad in new york. we do get a taste of hermine now as it heads northeast. back to you. >> we don't like what we see. but, rob, great job this morning. get back inside and stay dry. thank you. coming up on "gma," the big opening weekend from college football. we're live at lamb tu field with espn's kirk herbstreit. he's got his take, his predictions on today's matchups. and even princess kate's love of bargains, who knew stars are just like us. we're going to have more on her

the family favorite. yoplait. well at least he's wearing shoes. well done champ. get gooey, flaky, happy. toaster strudel. well, you see those anti-bacterial soaps everywhere. chances are you have them at home but now the fda is banning many of their chemicals and dr. sapna parikh joins us with more.
7:47 am
so, sapna, thanks for joining us. when i go to the store i'm shelf looking for a soap that says anti-bacterial. you're saying that is not going to exist anymore. why is the 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 that i want to read. they said, "cashing the hands with an antiseptic soap can help reduce the risk of infection beyond just providing by washing with anti-bacterial soap and water." so if they remove this agent, aren't we going to get sick? >> no, even the american academy of pediatrics recommends plain old soap and water.
7:48 am
the debate is more not necessarily better. there's concern that these anti-bacterial agents 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. totally different category. they are going away too? >> not right now. the hand sanitizers and wipes are staying but the fda is looking that also but may see a ban on those. >> sapna, great information, appreciate you coming in today. and "pop news" is next. in. and "pop news" is next.
