today. if the hurricane makes landfall in the u.s., it could be the strongest to hit here in a decade. >> florida is bracing for this. take a look at this apartment building in florida. windows shuttered. long lines at this grocery store. that's in miami beach and we have team coverage all along hurricane matthew's path. ginger in satellite beach, florida. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: good morning, george. i can't emphasize enough how serious this situation is. that hurricane is about 350 miles to my south and east. but i have to tell you the national weather service is using words like loss of life, immense human suffering possible and catastrophic damage. all possible if you don't make precautions now. look at the hurricane. the image over the bahamas. nassau just to the north of it. it is moving northwest at 12 miles per hour. still a category 3. it strengthened overnight. it could strengthen more as it approaches. you can see the outer bands
7:03 am
this is what we call rpm model. the hurricane warnings first. that is very important. if you're in red, this is an urgent, immediate situation. for tonight through early tomorrow morning when the brunt of this storm makes its way up along the coast of florida, so here's the rpm i was talking about. the image over the bahamas. then we'll take you right through tonight. the time period makes us by this evening, going up the coast, right along south carolina through saturday, 9:00 p.m. i'm going to show you the exact track in moments. first, to wherth and that's our alex perez in nassau, bahamas. >> reporter: hey, good morning, ginger. we, like so many others, have been up all night tracking this storm. the winds picking up here just a short time ago. now, take a look behind me. you can see the winds whipping those palm trees around. now people here are hunkered down. but this storm, this hurricane, just getting started here in the bahamas. overnight, hurricane matthew slamming the bahamas.
7:04 am
per hour igniting power lines. category 3 hurricane bringing torrential rain to the islands over a foot of rain expected. more than 3,000 tourists remain in the bahamas. those staying at the luxury atlantis resort evacuated from their hotel rooms and hurried to the ballroom, where they spent the night on the floor. >> we are concerned. we're trying to make the best of it. >> reporter: in haiti, this aerial view shows the destruction in the coastal town of jeremie. barely 1% of the homes there still standing. residents completely cut off and now there's fears those who survived the storm may starve. parts of cuba reduced to rubble. entire buildings collapsed. many structures, roofs torn off. and back here in nassau, we're expecting up to 15 inches of rain and a storm surge up to 15 feet high.
7:05 am
everyone here taking all those precautions, doing what they can to stay safe. but here's the bad news. this hurricane expected to linger and batter the bahamas all day. amy? >> all right, alex. so much concern there for the bahamas. and, of course, right here in the u.s., we're following the millions of people who are evacuate iing as schools and businesses close along the coast. abc's rob marciano is in charleston, south carolina. good morning to you, rob. >> reporter: good morning, amy, as you very well know, this part of south carolina is called the low country. and for good reason. it's barely above sea level. very vulnerable to hurricanes and that includes this city of charleston, which, in the past 24 hours, has turned into a virtual ghost town. from florida to the carolinas millions fleeing their homes as hurricane matthew barrels to the u.s. food flying off shelves. gas stations running out of fuel. >> i've spent almost an hour driving around looking for gas. >> reporter: in south carolina, interstate lanes reversed. everyone has to go away from the
7:06 am
>> we want you to evacuate. we do not want you to stay. >> i gotta go home. >> look at all the buses as far as the eye can see. >> reporter: buses offering free rides to those without cars. >> it's going to be so flooded. so we decided to leave. >> reporter: hundreds hunkering down in shelters. >> i love my kids dearly. i want to do what's best for them. >> reporter: businesses letting out early so people can board up their own homes. residents scrambling for supplies. stacks of barren shelves at home improvement stores. every chain saw at this lowe's sold out. >> we got a lot of people coming in looking for generators. >> reporter: they're concerned they'll be without power. how scared are people here? >> freaking out, i think. >> definitely chaotic. >> people will worried. it's been nearly 20 years since they had a big hurricane "hero," 1999, floyd. that took a two-hour drive to
7:07 am
nightmare. they're leaving early this time around. big impacts friday night and likely all day saturday. until then, anxious eyes on what this thing does to florida first. michael? >> all right, thank you, rob. the storm is causing major problems for flights. and gio benitez is at name international airport and that airport is about to close, right, gio? >> reporter: that's right, michael. when you're talking about these airports in the southeast, you're talking about some of the biggest in the country. when this system is affected, the rest of the nation feels it, too. let's take a look at the numbers. we're looking right now, already, at more than 1,400 cancellations. most of those right here in south florida. miami international, where we're at right now, this place will have no flights after 12:00 noon. many of thesplanes behind me will be moved to safer locations. ft. lauderdale's airport will close around 10:30 this morning. until that storm passes. now we're looking at atlanta. 100 cancellations there. now we're also going to talk about tomorrow.
7:08 am
cancellations too. more than 1,100 cancellations tomorrow. orlando is going to be getting some big numbers there. we're already looking at more than 500 canceled already. no doubt once this storm passes, airline operations teams are going to be look g ing at the tarmac, looking for any damage to fix it as soon as possible, george. >> right now the southeast is shutting down. let's go back to ginger in satellite beach. >> and, george, i want to take you straight to the track. this place i'm standing now, i wi it would be potentially deadly. so let me show you exactly why. it gets so close, it could make landfall close to here or just south as a category 4. it hugs along the coast through friday night into saturday. that's why georgia into south carolina still could see gigantic effects, then turns back out to the atlantic. here we wanted to show you how far the wind field will reach. if you're in yellow, that
7:09 am
see there, it's at friday night, midnight tonight. it touches the coast. then it in moves up through cape canaveral right along jacksonville. and this is what we're talking about. wind is one of the biggest events. >> if you have 100-mile-per-hour, 120-mile-per-hour wind, that is a huge deal. we talk to director rick knabb out of the national hurricane center. dr. knabb, the last time florida saw a land-falling major hurricane was wilma in 2005. population has increased greatly. i think folks just n wind event. when you have 120-mile-per-hour winds, what kind of destruction can they do? >> the extreme winds of a major hurricane can do damage not just at the coast. they can penetrate inland. that will be more so the case the closer this gets to the coast or if it actually comes ashore, and those chances are increasing. in addition to the wind, you have the storm surge potential that people have been told to evacuate. they need to get out this morning. right away. time is running out fast. you don't want to be caught in a storm surge.
7:10 am
and don't vertically evacuate if you're on the coast and told to evacuate. you get up 20, 25 stories in the high-rise, you're buying yourself another category higher on our wind scale. >> amy, the rain, the wave, there's so much more we will get to. amy, you know me. you know i don't go above. i always want to be accurate. i'm always worried about being right. this one, i'm just worried. much more coming up. >> we hope people heed the evacuation warnings. ginger, thank you. we'll follow the latest on long. but now to that big headline about a contractor for the nas arrested by the fbi accused of stealing top-secret material. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here. and, brian, sounds like at first read this could be another edward snowden. this one is different? >> reporter: it may well be. senior officials are calling the suspect more a weirdthan a whistle-blower. but the fact that once again a contract employee at the nsa
7:11 am
of the country out of the building is setting off alarms. it all happened at nsa headquarters outside washington, d.c. in a criminal complaint, the fbi says 51-year-old harold martin used his top secret clearance as a contractor for the booz allen company to download and remove huge amounts of top-secret codes and information. >> those sworn to protect it should not intentionally take that information. >> reporter: but it three years after another booz allen contractor, edward snowden, portrayed in this movie as a whistle-blower, was able to do much the same thing and then he made public the nsa secrets that he stole. >> when you download this kind of top secret information off the nsa network into your own computer or into a thumb drive, alarms should go off. apparently, they didn't. >> reporter: in this latest case, the fbi says it discovered
7:12 am
behind martin's home in maryland. his wife declined to answer questions. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: but his lawyer says martin is a man who loves his country and did not betray it. that's something the fbi is still investigating. and so far officials say they have seen no indication martin had any connection to a foreign government. and unlike snowden, he's not been charged with espionage. >> and speaking of snowden, he's still in russia and charges against him stil go his supporters have not gotten a presidential pardon but president obama has given no indication that he'll get a free pass and that he should come back and stand trial on espionage charges. we move to the race for the white house. 33 days until the final vote. just three days before the next big debate. donald trump looking for a big comeback, hitting bill clinton hard. as hillary clinton hits the books. abc's tom llamas tracking it all, good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. sunday's debate is a town hall. and the clinton campaign says
7:13 am
though, she did have some hiccups in the last nationally televised presidential candidates' forum. the trump campaign is turning to chris christie for help. donald trump testing out a new attack. against the clinton campaign, that is. >> boy, did bill clinton blow it. whoa, did he blow it. >> reporter: seizing on the comments by the former president criticizing obamacare. >> you've got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 more million have health care. >> can you imagine when he walked into th b in westchester and he said, hi, hillary. how was your day? oh, did he suffer. >> reporter: bill clinton later clarifying saying he supports obamacare, but it has some problems. >> remember hillary clinton called obamacare one of the greatest accomplishments of the president, of the democratic party and of our country. >> reporter: the republican nominee taking credit for his running mate's debate performance.
7:14 am
job, and i'm getting a lot of credit because that's really my first so-called "choice." that was my first hire, as we would say in las vegas. >> reporter: hillary clinton deep in debate prep with her team using the vp debate as a launching pad for sunday night saying pence wasn't looking out for trump. >> when your own running mate ticket, i think that tells you everything you need to know about who's qualified and temperamentally fit to be president. >> reporter: now, trump is gearing up for sunday's town hall debate format today in new hampshire getting some practice taking questions from voters in a similar setup. governor christie will be on hand for that. and, george, from what the what the files, check out this tweet from rosemarie terenzio o'donnell. she she's tweeting this
7:15 am
to mother on this new year's week. my best to you. george, apparently they met at a restaurant not too far from our studios. to have been a fly on the wall to hear that conversation. >> i guess she was referring to the jewish new year. thanks very much. we're here with donald trump's campaign manager, kellyanne conway. thanks for coming in again. let 'pick up on what hillary clinton was doing on the stump. democrats putting out videos and ads saying that mike pence missed an opportunity to defend donald trump on tuesday night. >> we totally disagree. desperate to clean up tim kaine's performance. he interrupted 72 times. when he wasn't interrupting the female moderator, he was just ignoring her pleading with him to stop and answer the question. we're really happy with governor pence's performance. it was spectacular. and it stuck to substance. the fact that he's proudly on the ticket very proudly tells you all you need to know about donald trump. >> on the substance.
7:16 am
many times mr. trump said we should not take sides in the fight in syria. mike pence says we should be preparing to take action against the assad regime. does have agree on that now? >> the russia reset that hillary clinton has proudly tried to own has been a complete disaster. these fake and feigned red lines were not real and what do we have now, a full-blown military crisis. >> take military action against assad? >> we don't know. when they're president and vice president, we'll see. but what we know is that we want to join with allies in the region for help. this is a humanitarian crisis. it's heartbreaking to everyone. it's a nonpartisan issue to read those stories every day. families being torn apart. people being murdered. >> i know you're pleased with mike pence's performance. that was on tuesday night. a lot of reviews for donald trump not so good. the polls have fallen since mr. trump's debate. something in "the wall street journal" this morning. it state mr. trump owe give indicated on his belief that he won the debate when he reviewed the videotapes. what do you learn from the
7:17 am
he was trying to answer the questions as they were asked. mrs. clinton was trying to get out the five or six zingers she had rehearsed for a number of days. so, this time i think that donald trump in a town hall format, it's one in which he's very comfortable. you have seen him, because abc has covered some of his town hall formats. he enjoys sitting there one-on-one and engaging with the audience. he's the one out there at the rallies and smaller settings every single day. he just had a west coast tour where basically there were more people outside trying to get in than inside practically. thousands an message. so, it's a comfortable format and i think donald trump got no credit for being gracious to secretary clinton, asking her should i call you secretary clinton when she was calling him donald. at the end pulling his punches about bill clinton and the women and the way hillary clinton treated those women blaming and shaming them in the 1990s when it was it was revealed her husband was having affairs. he got no credit for being gracious and restrained. i thought he made a lot of great points in that debate. he talked about the differences
7:18 am
and that hillary clinton and donald trump -- that hillary clinton and barack obama created the vacuum in which isis was formed. >> he does need a win sunday night, doesn't he? >> he needs a win on november 8th. and we're headed that way. for all the talk about hillary clinton surging in the polls, she's not at 50% and staying anywhere in the states. why is that for someone spending tens of millions of dollars in negative ads against us. i think people are rejecting the negative campaign. >> kellyanne conway, thank you very much. the next presidential debate is right here on sunday night on abc. our martha raddatz co-anchoring it sta now back to ginger in florida. >> george, one quick look at the storm surge, something we weren't able to detail. look at that, three to five in the orange area. six to nine foot in red. that includes jacksonville to
7:19 am
good morning, fresh snow mother nature made snow at loveland. a good 3-6 inches falling late last gh here in denver we have rain but along i-25 further south, a rit of a mix starting to pop up on radar. we could see flakes along the i- 25 corridor with temperatures this morning in the 40s. 50s this afternoon and a chilly day. denver a high of >> and, guys, you can see the waves already kicking back up. i'm going to sho you how big

7:21 am
i tried hard to quit smoking. but when we brought our daughter home, that was it. now i have nicoderm cq. the nicoderm cq patch with unique extended release technology helps prevent your urge to smoke all day. it's the best thing that ever happened to me. every great why needs a great how. you know how it is, someone does something nice for you and you feel obligated to do something nice back. maybe your aunt sent you a crocheted scarf, you sent a thank you note... and the crochet just kept on coming. well, at carmax, you don't have to return the favor. they'll buy your car even if you don't buy a car from them. because feeling obligated is uncomfortable. and tight. in places it shouldn't be. carmax won't make you feel that way.

7:23 am
beer lovers across the country have been waiting for today, the great american beer festival beginning to today. jason gruenauer with a look at the fun. >> reporter: yes, it's the largest gathering of u.s. beers ever poured. the largest number in one place in the entire country, the great american festival celebrating 35 and it starts at 5:30 tonight running, thursday friday and saturday. there are still tickets available on the secondary markets if you want to get here. nearly 800 breweries and starts at 5:30 at the convention center.

7:33 am
7 phones starting to smoke, force plaeng to evacuate. in this case, the phone was a replacement meant to address the safety issues. david kerley has more. >> reporter: good morning, amy. we have been so worried about one of these planes overheating on a jet. ironically, it was a recall replacement burning before takeoff. if true, it could mean bigger >> we got smoke in the cabin the. can you send emergency equipment? >> reporter: the reason, this samsung phone. >> i noticed smoke pouring out of my pocket. i pulled the phone out of my pocket, threw it on the ground. it continued to smoke and smolder into the carpet. >> reporter: he says his phone was a replacement for the galaxy note 7. >> oh, my god. look at the car.
7:34 am
and exploding in cars, at home, at work. >> there was smoke everywhere. >> reporter: the incident in the jet in louisville may be the first time for a replacement note 7 to burn. >> it popped. it sizzled you could say even. i was scared i was going to have bits of glass in my hand and electronics and what not. >> reporter: he says he powered down the phone as asked right before takeoff. within hours, the consumer product safety commission had investigators there. >> object on an airplane, it's a big development. we're concerned. that's why we're move something aggressively to investigate. >> reporter: samsung said it sent investigators, too, and is cooperating with the government. now we're waiting to find out whether this was the actual phone. there's still a lot of questions. there have been reports of
7:35 am
heating up. this would be the first case of it burning. >> and steve ganyard joins us. i have flown recently. you hear the flight attendants saying don't charge your phone. if it's a note 7, turn it off. what could have happened if that same incident happened when the flight was in the air? >> amy, think about it. if this had been ten minutes later while the plane was airborn. the battery fires 1500 degrees. aluminum melts at 1200. think about the seat burning. we dodged a bullet this time. i don't think we can continue the count on being so lucky. >> this was supposedly one of the replacement phones that samsung has given this customer. is the company doing enough? >> apparently not. and so, i think samsung will have to come out and be more forth coming with the kinds of changes instituted.
7:36 am
today. they bring smartphones, tablets, laptops on to the airplane. you may have 150 people on the airplane. you probably have 200 lithium ion batteries. it's a battery problem. it will only get worse before better. >> what is the government's role? what are the airlines' roles in all of this? >> we can't expect the tsa or airlines to go through everybody's i think in the short term, the faa and samsung have to work together the fix the defect. amazingsly, there's no minimum mandatory safety standard for the batteries. i think there's a role for the congress here to step in and say, if you're going to sell something with lithium ion battery in the country you have to meet a minimum safety bar. e we don't have that as of now. >> steve ganyard, thank you. michael, on the big board in

dccc is responsible for the content of this advertising. time now for the big board. we start with dan abrams right here and the big trial in georgia. the hot car trial. a far fighting murder charges after leaving his toddler for hours in a suffocating your website law news is live-veeming this trial. pretty dramatic day yesterday. talk of a mistrial. >> that's right. the defense asking for a mistrial. one of the first police officers at the scene has changed his story since the initial police report. the issue was, how was justin ross harris acting immediately after this happen snd was he hysterical or just pretending to be hysterical? it seems the police officer, according to the defense, has
7:40 am
ross harris. the defense is saying, wait, we want the first police report to come in. et cetera. so far, the judge saying, that's for krcross-examination. not going grant it. >> when the officer testified, he said this guy was really hysterical. now he's saying he didn't buy it? >> correct. that's the key question. one of the most important questions. that's the human response, right? everyone plays sort of parent-evaluator. they say, what would i if this had just happened to my child? how would i have reacted? the defense is saying, he was hysterical. he was crying. the prosecutors are saying, no, he wasn't. e wasn't acting the way a nor mall parent would act. >> is the case going well for the defense so far? >> they've presented a lot of things we didn't know about before. and posed a lot of questions about whether justin ross harris did this on purpose.
7:41 am
case for the defense. the facts are hard for them. remember, even in this jury thinks he didn't do it on purpose. they think he was reckless or negligent in the way he was handling it, he could still be con vicked of murder. >> watch it on law >> with a "z." >> with a "z." now to black friday backlash. the mall of america is anountsing it will close this thanksgiving bucking the trend of black friday deals starting earlier and earlier every year. rebecca jarvis joins us live. every year, these sales kick off earlier and earlier. right after thanksgiving, the sales start again. so is this a big deal for the mall of america to step in and say, we're not opening on thanksgiving? >> it's a huge deal, michael. the employees, they cheered. and some of them hugged. i'm told some of them shed tears
7:42 am
mall in the country, would stay closed. you see the pictures there. i mean, every year we get these pictures of thanksgiving rushes, black friday rushes. if anybody wants to be a prt of that, they're in luck. the mall of america will open on black friday. and as somebody who sment spept many of her formative years hanging out at the mall of america, folding sweaters at the mall of america, as a job, i am proud of them. i say bravo on this one. >> who will follow their lead? >> i think others. all of the retailers the last couple of years that opened up on thanksgiving have traded some of their later holiday sales for the thanksgiving sales. they have to pay employees more. it's a long holiday season. they want their employees to be happy right up until christmas time. so they sell another sweater, a watch, a tv. probably others will follow. this giving them cover. >> when she said they were hugging, we sthoed video, i thought those were the employees. that's a weird way.
7:43 am
floor. they're very loving there. >> okay, rebecca, thanks. let's take a deeper look at the big debate sunday night. it will be a different kind. a town hall format. as we said, martha raddatz will be one of the mod rarts. jon karl will be on the scene as well. you sea he talking to kellyanne conway. she says donald trump is great at this format. it will be quite different for format for donald trump. for a couple of reasons. one, he has done a fair amount of these. i've been with him at town hall meetings in iowa and new hampshire. he feeds off the crowd. the other reason this could be good for trump, it will be hard for him to go personal. all this talk about him going after bill clinton's infidelities. i think that's very hard to do in an intimate setting where the town hall.
7:44 am
>> that's good for trump. that would be a terrible decision for him to do, yes. >> what are the keys to success for the candidates in a town hall? >> i got a couple of rules for you. first of all, one thing about this format, you're not tied to the podium. you can wander around the stage. so my first rule is stay in your zone. remember, when george w. bush debated al gore and al gore walked over to him, got into his personal space during one of the questions. take a look at what happened. with this look like what are you doing? i think that one look actually helped bush win that debate. >> i think you're right about that. you say stay in your zone. the exception could be approaching a citizen questioner. bill clinton did that in 1992 while the older bush was looking at his watch. that worked for him. >> that gets to my second rule.
7:45 am
empathize. george h.w. bush look at his watch before that question. the key moment was when he got irritated about a question. bill clinton walked over and felt that questioner's pain. he didn't say those words. but that was the feeling. you remember in 2008 when john mccain seemed to be pacing throughout the debate when he wasn't talking. and you know, heas all over the place. one point walking in front of one of the cameras. jon that moment. take a look at this. >> how you folks doing? as anybody seen my dog? has anyone seen my little mr. puddles. just the little guy? fits right in your hand? no? mr. puddles! mr. puddles zblchlt i have snausages. >> wow. >> obama looks so young. >> so the key words, stay in

pink day for "deals & steals." a lot of big ones coming up with to. that is coming up in just a little bit. but, first, we have a parenting alert about concussions. a study about their long-term effects raising concerns. and paula has the story of one young athlete who is a cheerleader. >> reporter: let's be honest. when you hear sport and concussion, you think football, soccer, maybe even baseball. but cheerleading? and that right there is the problem. tumbling resulting in actual tumbles. it happens more often than you think and can have catastrophic consequences. just ask caitlin. >> it's been over a year and i still have headaches. 60%, 70% of the day. >> reporter: over the course of 15 years, she's suffered five concussions all from cheering. >> it was cheer 100%. and 15 hours a week for 15 years. >> reporter: she's now been forced to say good-bye to her
8:15 am
>> if i continued to cheer, i would get more concussions. and who knows what the side effects of those ones would be. because i was already seeing some memory issues. >> reporter: her first concussion was when she was 13 years old. not from flying or falling. from being the base, the catcher. >> i missed the mat when i fell. i hit my head right on the basketball floor. that was scary. i did lose vision for awhile. >> reporter: and by concussion number four as a sophomore on the squad at the university of texas, she began to see the long-term effects. >> i really started having memory issues, short-term memory issues. not being able to remember where i parked my car. not being able to remember or find words when i was talking. things like that >> reporter: while high schools and colleges have protocols in place for reporting head trauma, caitlin hopes to raise awareness so that other young women will also take their cheer injuries
8:16 am
>> i think if i had played it smarter and sat out longer and let myself truly recover and not gotten the repetitive concussions, i wouldn't be in the position that i am now. >> reporter: now, you heard it's been over a year since she quit. still, those headaches persist. she was concerned about the memory loss. about 60% of the time, those headaches persist. now, the study talks about lingering physical and psychological effects about head trauma. those were her big concerns. >> thank you, paula. jen ashton here with us. that story a rem something you say. cheerleading is a contact sport. >> 100%. anyone who's been to a high school or collegiate game knows that it is. they face increased risk of concussion. not just the flyers but the athletes at the base. rates among girls and young women have gone up over 100% recently. this new study is about awareness. showing that even one injury can have the potential for physical and psychological effects down the road. the good news is most people don't have that.
8:17 am
admission right there. she said she realized now she should have sat out longer. >> we have learned a lot about recognizing the signs of concussion. we still have a lot to learn about recovery and treatment. and specifically, one study showed that among high school athletes at two weeks, only 40% are recovered. at a month, only 90% are recovered. let me drive that home. it's like looking at these steaks. on the outside, they look cooked the same. this one, not fully cooked. this one, better cooked. you can't tell by athlete on the outside how the body is recovering on the inside. >> you know this from personal experience. your daughter is an athlete. >> she plays ice hockey. it's a very rough sport. my eyes are on her every hit, every shift, every game. every hit, every fall. athletic coaches and trainers do a great job. they're watching a lot of kids. no one knows your kid better than you. i think busting those mitts is critically important. you don't have to plaque out to have a concussion. you don't have to only have headache. if you know where you are on a
8:18 am
