5:04 am
trump finally saying he is sorry he could grope a woman because he is famous. is the damage already done? >> when you start it, they let you do it. grab them by the [ bleep ]. >> reporter: after those outrageous remarks, finally a contrite trump. >> i said it. i'm sorry. i apologize. >> reporter: and then this. >> bill clinton has abused women and hillary has shamed his victims. >> reporter: the nominee's brief apology believed to be unprecedented in his public life came off a 2005 tape surfaced revealing a conversation between trump and then "access hollywood" host billy bush. trump brags about groping women, laughing off an effort to seduce "access hollywood's" nancy o'dell. >> i moved on her heavily. i took her out furniture shopping. she wanted to get furniture. i'll show you where they have nice furniture. i moved on her like a [ bleep ].
5:05 am
i couldn't debt there. she was married. all of a sudden i see her, she has the big phony [ bleep ]. she's totally changed her look. >> the comments were caught on a hot mike during a publicity tour eight months after he marryied his third wife melania, who was already pregnant. trump had no other choice but to repunt. one campaign staffer calling it their very own hurricane. reince priebus saying no woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner ever. paul ryan disinviting trump from a scheduled appearance in wisconsin today. saying he is sickened. utah's former's sitting republican governor is along with republican congressman jason chaffetz and senator mike lee revoking their support. >> i can no longer endorse donald trump for president. just can't do it. >> reporter: swing state operatives are calling this the enand some high-profile voices demanding he drop out. but trump isn't leaving.
5:06 am
>> he with will discuss this more in coming days. see you at the debate on sunday. >> reporter: this morning, new talks to see how the republican party can go forward and whether they can take trump off the ticket. pressure to do so mounting from big dollar gop donors but it's a move that is highly unlikely because of ballot issues. remember early voting has started in a number of states meanwhile, billy bush apologizing saying he's embarrassed and ashamed that this happened when he was younger and less mature. guys? >> trump has done countless interviews like this before with "access hollywood" and others like it. what are the chance there could be more tapes out there. >> there has been grumbling about that. we could see more of these tapes. i was talking to someone who had known donald trump for a long time and said he's said much worse. >> thank you. let's bring in moderator of
5:07 am
"meet the press," chuck todd. >> good morning. >> trump says something crazy or trump does something ridiculous and it doesn't stick to him. does this feel different to you? >> it does. i think, look you had a campaign that was reeling. and sort of in some for conventional reasons. now, this. i think it's unrecoverable. i think the question now is how do republicans down the ballot break away from him? is it done by the leadership first? is it mcconnell it is ryan? is it the chairman of the party? it's unrecoverable. the question now is what does -- do people -- what does the rest 6 the party do? >> that apology, that half apology, half threat that promise to continue the conversation likely during the debate tomorrow. what's in store for this debate tomorrow?
5:08 am
>> if -- if this debate is what donald trump threatens, i don't think -- i mean it is unchartered territory, craig. i'm trying to envision what this might look like. disaster doesn't begin to describe it if this is the road that trump goes down. if this is what it turns into i don't think he has any idea how much of a mistake this would be how poorly this would play to attack -- to attack a woman for the infidelities of her husband. it would be of epic proportions of a political miscalculation. >> these defections chuck, we've started to see them jason chaffetz we showed in the piece there, senator mike lee as well, saying that trump should get out of this thing. paul ryan uninviting him to that event in wisconsin today. >> right. >> likelihood we'll see more of that over the next few days?
5:09 am
>> i think we will. i will be stunned if we don't. so far, the first people to break have been two groups of republicans. one have been mormons. and obviously, this has been an issue for many utah republicans, rank and file for months let alone leaders. you've had the next set of condemn nations have come from republicans in very very competitive races in a month. i think today and tomorrow and the next day you'll start seeing panic among potentially house republicans. remember craig, let's talk about winning and losing here. this is about can republicans hold the senate? but if this is mishandled if donald trump truly goes into tomorrow as a political ied, then the house could be in play and suddenly the entire party could collapse on itself over the next few weeks before this election. >> chuck, it sounds like -- >> i think it's a total -- i think it's a total -- i think people will start running for
5:10 am
the hills. >> it sounds like you're saying donald trump could bring down the entire gop. >> i think he could. >> come november. but to be clear, 31 days out, they're stuck with it. >> they're stuck. look i had a conversation with some high-level republicans in early august craig. during the khan episode when he was attacking the gold star family and the khan family. there was chatter, okay if they could con vince him to quit you know how much time would they have? when would they have to do it when would he have to get out? it was essentially determined they had until approximately the first week of september. now it's too late. the ballot deadlines, all of that is too late. maybe there's a weird electoral college thing where they could somehow get all of the electors that have promised to elect trump to sign some other pledge. fundamentally, it's too late to replace him. >> chuck todd. thank you, sir.
5:11 am
look for much much more tomorrow morning. >> you got it. >> on "meet the press." >> yes. >> hard to believe. that's not all that happened in politics yesterday. at about the same time that donald trump tape was made public wikileaks released more e-mails they claim are from clinton campaign chairman john podesta's personal e-mail account, they appear to contain cone tents of private wall street speeches. many people wanted to know what was in those. casey hunt is in st. louis, the site of tomorrow's debate with more on that. >> good morning. so much news at all once here. we're finally getting a glimpse into those speeches that you mentioned that clinton gave to wall street and other private groups that bernie sanders demanded she release during the primary. she never did. these are from wikileaks. we haven't confirmed the authenticity of them and the campaign hasn't either. john podesta tweeting i'm not happy about being hacked by the russians in their quest to throw
5:12 am
the election to donald trump. but these documents do give a glimpse of a hillary clinton that's different in private than in public. she even went so far as to say as much saying politicians need to have one public position and one private position as they try to get things done in washington. and, of course on the issue of trade that was so important to sanders, she actually went so far as to say she would call for an open border policy, quote, my dream is a hemispheric common mark wet open trade and open borders. potentially causing her some trouble. now, the clinton campaign out with a statement, again, focused on the rugs saying, quote, the u.s. government removed any reasonable doubt that the kremlin weaponized wickly leaks to meddle in our election and benefit donald trump's candidacy. he says that they're not going to confirm the authenticity of stolen documents released by julian assange who has made no secret of his desire to damage hillary clinton. but at the same time here there are no major bombshells in
5:13 am
these documents. if they are authentic, that really stands up to the magnitude of that story about donald trump. many democrats i've auctioned to in the last 12 hours privately saying they think this race might already be over. >> casey hunt in st. louis. i'll see you there tomorrow. we have to open up this conversation. there is too much to cover. let's bring in a republican strategist who is a deputy campaign manager for carly fiorina and harold ford jr., former u.s. congressman from the state of tennessee and msnbc political analyst. >> good morning. >> good morning to both of you. we have to start with donald trump. these comments any other person could make them it would torpedo their campaign. this is a conversation we've been having over and over. he's had a problem with women already. 64% of women polled have a negative view of him. will this have an impact? is this going to change votes? >> we're heading into an election where we are going to have the largest gender gap in history by a factor of two. i think what this will do we
5:14 am
won't be able to measure this outside of the debate on sunday. what this does in a debate he needed to win, be on offense for, he's heading in on his heels at best. they have no now be sending all of today and tomorrow preparing for how to hannel this. i don't think last night's apology video does anything, anything to help that. and so i think that this will all be tied into a debate that he couldn't lose. >> go back to the video that he put out around midnight. half apology, half threat. basically saying that he's going to be going after bill clinton. the debate tomorrow in st. louis, how ugly could this thing get? >> it's really all on him. i agree with sara's comments. a lot of ways it shows inside in his mind about what his wealth really provides. he talked about the advantages of celebrity and wealth. they allow you to treat women a certain way. you have to wonder what it was like dealing with his daughter who defended him vigorously and i thought convincingly at the convention. and not only that, his wife.
5:15 am
and three, the gender gap. no doubt it was going to be large. republicans alike, i don't think we'll hear -- we'll hear from more republicans today about him stepping down. he has a daughter a sister it's hard to look your family in the eye and say i'm going to actively support and be for donald trump. not only can the debate be interesting, the next 24 hours will be interesting, how he handles women and his own family. >> it's going to be extraordinary. thank you so much. so much news this morning. we know this topic and a lot more will come up tomorrow night during the second presidential debate. you can see hillary clinton and donald trump's face-off on msnbc and we will be streaming it live on coverage begins at 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific, that's tomorrow night. i'm pretty sure we'll get a huge audience for that. >> i would imagine so. other big story, hurricane matthew, that storm is a weakened category 2 hurricane with top sustained winds of
5:16 am
about 105 miles per hour. it is battering south carolina. but on friday heavy damage and destruction was left behind in parts of florida. at least four people were killed in that state. more than 1.2 million people are without power this morning. through georgia, through florida and the carolinas as well. we have team coverage this morning. we start with nbc's chris jansing in charleston south carolina. chris, how is charleston doing? >> yes, i mean this is what hurricane conditions look like craig. and this wind and rain has been steadily worsening over the last hour or so. they say it's going to continue for several hours more. in fact the hurricane conditions for at least another hour and take a look at the flooding. you can see how deep my boots are. this isn't even the worst of it. we're pretty far away from the worst of it. having said that officials believe that the combination of wind and rain and flooding could be the worst since hugo in '89 and that's why governor nikki
5:17 am
haley has called out the national guard. has said that she's upping the number of national guard to 35,000 people. we saw some of them out actually braving some of the earlier conditions and some of the flooding yesterday. in addition to that you have waves that are cresting at 20 feet, measured off buoys off the coast. 90,000 people now without power. that number expected to rise. they have power crews that are here from as far sa wayaway as texas. a problem, downed power liens causing burglar alarms and fire alarms going off that has been keeping the emergency crews busy. now, the one thing that officials are happy about is they told people to evacuate 335,000 did, many of those in shelters and those who didn't heeded the warnings overnight. they have no problems kept off the streets. the only thing we saw when we came in about 8:00 or 9:00 last night, frankly were police cars that curfew seemed to hold.
5:18 am
i just talked to a city official who said they didn't have major problems overnight. having said that when you look at this combination of factors, the wind the rain the flooding perhaps the third highest surge that they've ever had in history. they're going to have a mess on their hands here in what is clearly as you know craig, because you spent so much time here, not one just one of the most historic but one of the most beautiful cities in the south. >> the crown jewel of south carolina. chris jansing, thank you for the update. >> scary scene out there, dylan. what's the latest on hurricane matthew's track. >> the track is supposed to make landfall near charleston shortly. it is a category 2 hurricane. winds are down to 105 miles per hour. that is still very strong. take a look at the rain bands swirling into most of south carolina even up into north carolina right now. and since we are very close to possible landfall you can see that the hurricane force winds are also making their way
5:19 am
onshore with the eyewall. hilton head island reporting gusts of 87 miles per hour. you go up to charleston inland just a bit, 37 mile per hour wind gusts. tybee island georgia, 93 miles an hour and also the highest storm surge they have ever experienced. speaking of the storm surge, we're looking at 5 to 7 feet from hilton head farther north. cape fear up to kitty hawk we could see 2 to 4-foot storm surge. that's the push of water that increases the amount of coastal flooding we see compared to a regular high tide. here's the latest track although we get an update later this morning. it is expected to continue its weakening trend and then eventually to a tropical depression before it loops back around possibly into the bahamas as we get into the end of next week. in the meantime we are looking at heavy rain torrential downpours. that 5 to 9-foot storm surge, totals of up near 15 inches of rain possible. look at how far north it spreads now. we have an approaching cold front from the west. we are even going to see some
5:20 am
rain across eastern long island and southeastern massachusetts, not really because of the storm itself but adding extra moisture. so we'll even see the effects across the northeast as well. guys? >> tough time dylan, thank you. we'll get much more from you throughout the morning. we want to get back to charleston south carolina and see how the city is doing. john techlenbery is the mayor of charleston. what have you seen as far as the damage is concerned? >> well first let me say how proud i am of our emergency operations personnel, both in the city and the county and the state. i was riding around downtown charleston last night and despite the fact that we always welcome people to our vibrant and lively city it was virtually a ghosttown. we really did a great job in
5:21 am
evacuating folks and getting them safe and secure in their homes before the storm came. what we're concerned about today is the high winds that are about to unleash on this city as the eyewall of this storm actually hits the city of charleston. so we're expecting over 100 mile-an-hour winds. and the triple threat of flooding which includes that storm surge, the high tide that will be here midday today and the torrential rains that we're receiving as the day goes on. >> i was just about to ask you that. let's talk about flooding for a moment. charleston is low lying, downtown floods easily. how much flooding are you expecting? >> a good bit. we've already closed about 80 streets, local streets, due to flooding and due to some trees already coming down. the trees and the power outages, frankly, will increase as the day goes on with the increased
5:22 am
wind. but the flooding midday should be the worst. because as that storm surge pushes water in and the high tide comes in and the rain has nowhere to go out, we're going to have continued and increased flooding throughout the day. >> and finally -- >> hopefully, god bless, it will have no loss of life. that's the most important thing. >> amen to that. finally, my colleague mentioned about 90,000 people are without power this morning. when can they expect that to be back on? >> well just to let you know our city personnel, both public safety and public service, are stationed throughout the city in fire stations everywhere. so that as soon as the storm is over we'll begin our response and recovery. the utility companies have pre-positioned crews not only their own crews but they've called in other crews. we have many resources and
5:23 am
assets ready to go for response and recovery. and we hope in just a day or two we'll be happy to welcome folks back to charleston and come down to join us. >> all the best to the communities affected there. mayor tecklenburg, thank you. >> dylan is back with a check of the rest of the country. >> going on across the rest of the country, there's not a lot to talk about. main focus is the cold front moving forward and how it will combine with the rain. all eyes are on south c hey, good saturday morning to you, we are waking up to temperatures in the 40s and 50s right now, and do have generally clear skies overhead. as we go through the afternoon hours, we're talking temperatures warmer than they were yesterday that will leave us at 90 degrees today for an afternoon high in januarysan jose 82 for santa cruz and looking at
5:24 am
low 90s for inland valley. we do have cooler temperatures on tap plus rain in the seven day forecast. we'll talk about that at 7:00. your latest forecast. >> all right, dylan. still to come more of our coverage of hurricane matthew's wrath. first, this is "today" on nbc.
5:25 am
5:26 am
still to come here we are live in south carolina as folks there wake up to assess the damage from hurricane matthew. this is a live look at the beach. and one month to go until electi
5:27 am
take a live look outside [adlib] san francisco from san bruno mountain 5:26. good morning. a live look outside san francisco. still dark out there but it's going to be a beautiful day for fleet week and it's going to be a nice weekend. thanks for joining us. i'm michelle roberts are anthony slaughter. it was warm yesterday in the city, same deal today? >> it's going to get even warmer e temperatures approaching 90 degrees and san francisco still in the 70s close to 80 degrees and this morning, we had that chill in the air. we do have clear skies this morning, no fog, but every where else, clear skies. that's really going to feel the heat in the afternoon hours, under sunny skies today, we'll reach 90 degrees in san jose
5:28 am
same for livermore, and perfect beach weather from san francisco down to half moon bay and santa cruz today. 70s and 80s and lots and lots of sunshine. you mentioned fleet week and we'll talk about hurm coming up. >> thanks anthony. well fear and confusion this morning for one san jose family. someone threw not one through three molotov cocktails at their home. carlos gonzalez said he had to grab a garden hose after someone recently threw them at his front door while his two kids were playing inside. the family says they have no idea who would target them or why. >> for someone to do something like this i mean that person's got to have some you know serious problems to the point that he wanted to burn our house, knowing that there's people inside that house. >> investigators say they hope to get their hands on neighborhood surveillance video to solve this case. two people were injured during a fire at an east bay
5:29 am
apartment building. the fire started around 9:00 last night at a complex in concord and quickly spread to all the floors on the building at least eight units were destroyed. the apartment building is located on clayton road just south of tree boulevard. it took fire crews about an hour to control the flames and witnesses say they heard explosions during the fire. >> we had heard that it was a balcony on fire was the initial report. if it was indeed a balcony, the propane tanks from the barbecue certainly would have made some pops that sounded like explosions. >> two people were injured and treated and released at the scene. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. well a touch of rio in the bay area. the olympians welcome home dinner in san francisco last night. the bay area's force organizing committee have been hosting the event for ten years. it took place at the fairmont
5:30 am
hotel. more than 30 olympians were honored. the 2020 summer games if you need more olympics in your life will be taking place in rio. and coming up at 7:00 on "today in the bay," giants fans are keeping the faith despite their loss to the chicago cubs. why they say they have no doubt the team be make it to the world series. that was all your top stories coming up at 7:00. right now, back to the today show.
5:31 am
we are back on this saturday morning, october 8th 20126. check out that great crowd on the plaza this morning. we'll head out there in just a few to say hello. here's a look at what else is making headlines this morning. a rare apology overnight from donald trump for vial comments he made about women back in 2005 when he didn't realize he was being recorded. the comments released on friday are from a taped conversation trump was having with former "access hollywood" host billy bush. trump talks about groping and kissing women. trump said he was sorry on a video released friday night. >> i've said and done things i regret. the words released on this more than a decade-old video is one
5:32 am
of them. i said it i was wrong and i apologize. >> trump was supposed to pear at a campaign event today in wisconsin. he was disinvited with many fellow republicans slamming his comments. this morning, moscow is responding to the obama administration's accusation that ard 0ed hackers to interfere with the presidential race. a statement from the secretary of homeland security and the director of national intelligence charged that senior russian officials were the only ones who could authorize the attacks on u.s. political groups. the kremlin dismissed the statement as nonsense. and the u.s. military is moving in and sending a ship full of aid and supplies to haiti to help that country after hurricane matthew's destruction. hundreds of people have already died and hundreds of thousands have been displaced. some relief supplies have already started pouring into that country in great need. let's go back to our coverage of hurricane matthew now. the storm leaving its mark on georgia overnight.
5:33 am
nbc's rehema ellis is in savannah for us this morning. what's the scene now? >> i can tell you, craig, so many people are waking up this morning to massive power outages, according to the georgia power company, some 260,000 people throughout the county without power. here in chatham county 143,000. take a look down the street. you see some of the streetlights are on. that's a good thing. there were no lights in our hotel when we got up this morning. also consider what you see. you don't see anyone. in this particular county according to officials, about 75% of the residents did heed the order to evacuate. that's something like 200,000 people. the good news is that while the wind is still surging, gusting at about 46 miles per hour right now, that storm that we got that hit the area overnight did not force the wind and the rain i should say up into the streets here. because you can see that the streets are pretty dry.
5:34 am
but there have i said been power outages. there are downed trees, downed power lines. people are going to be dealing with that this morning. on the islands, a lot to deal with. tybee island got a record storm surge of 12 1/2 feet overnight. what they say in order to really assess the damage they're going to wait for all of this wind to calm down before authorities send their emergency crews and their assessment crews out to figure out exactly what -- how much damage has been done to this area. craig? >> rehema ellis in savannah stay safe. >> you can see she's blowing around in the word. stay safe. >> dylan, what's the latest on matthew? >> tybee eye lapped was hit hard. we saw the high tide occur when the strongest storm surge occurred. so want to show you exactly what a storm surge is and it's basically a rise of water in addition to the regular high tide. so you have your normal tide levels and then you have your
5:35 am
high tide levels. if you add water on top of that it's a huge push of water that comes onshore. obviously this is a little bit exaggerated. in tybee eyeisland we saw a surge of more than 12 feet. i'm 5'3". so if you take your average high tide levels and add perhaps up to 4 to 6 feet on top of that this is basically just a wall of water that's coming onshore. the water has nowhere to go. it tens to push inland. even though savannah say, is farther inland it's still close enough that that water ends up flooding places like savannah. we're going to see the same type of situation in charleston as well. it's not just the coastal flooding because of the storm surge. it's also the rain itself. you can see that all of this is just pushing onshore as the whole system wraps around. we're also looking at flash flooding. that's still a major concern. we're looking for an additional 12.
5:36 am
>>s of rain possible in what we're going to see today. it's the combination of that storm surge pushing the water onshore, causing coastal flooding and inland flooding and the additional flash flooding we can see from another foot of rain possible. some areas have picked up more than a foot of rain as it is. that's a look at the weather across the country. now here's a peek out your window. to the afternoon, look at our highs today. we're talking 90 degrees so a little bit warmer than it was just yesterday even 76 today for san francisco and 92 for the north bay, under clear skies to start the day, we're going to see clear skies to finish the day and that's going to leave warm temperatures all across the bay. remember that spf and grab a bottle of water before you head out the door. we'll talk about our rain chances coming up at 7:00 this morning. that's your latest forecast. >> all right. >> thank you, dylan. still to come following in her father's footsteps. can't get cuter. john legend's daughter proves it

6:02 am
105 mile-per-hour winds and a heavy storm surge causing problems overnight, dylan's tracking the storm's path today, saturday october 8th 2016. good morning and welcome back to "today" on this saturday morning. >> we have a lot to get to this morning. we'll go live to south carolina which is currently taking the brunt of hurricane matthew in just a few minutes. first, we have got to start with the breaking political news that took place overnight. a very rare apology from donald trump. >> the candidate forced to say he's sorry after a tape from 2005 surfaced where he said vulgar comments about women. a lot of backlash this morning. nbc's katy tur is here with the latest. katy good morning. >> donald trump is facing mounting pressure overnight and he finally succumbed, parentally
6:03 am
apologizing for the first time in his political life. >> you can do anything. >> whatever you want. >> grab them by the [ bleep ]. >> reporter: that conversation happening eight months after trump married his third wife melania. she was already pregnant at the time. in it he also describes trying and failing to have sex with a married woman. overnight a deluge of condemnation high-profile names demanding he drop out. others like house speaker paul ryan continuing to support him but saying he is sickened. that forced trump to do what he's never done before, apologize. >> anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who i am. i said it. i was wrong. and i apologize. >> reporter: the apology video was only 90 seconds long and he wasted no time attacking bill and hillary clinton.
6:04 am
trying to deflect the blame. >> bill clinton has actually abused women and hillary has bullied, attacked shamed and intimidated his victims. we will discuss this more in the coming days. >> the debate is sunday. we will see how aggressive trump gets in trying to defend himself. it seems like the clinton marriage for now is fair game once again. one thing is for certain here though there is a lot of soul searching going on among republicans over how they continue to stand by their nominee. sheinelle? >> katy tur, thank you. donald trump was supposed to be in wisconsin for a campaign event. after those comments were made public last night he was disinvited by speaker of the house paul ryan. jacob rascon is in wisconsin with more on that. jacob, good morning. >> good morning. paul ryan was supposed to be on stage, the stage in fact that you see behind me with trump for the first time campaigning today. it was supposed to be a big moment for trump and instead as
6:05 am
you mentioned he was uninvited and now paul ryan has come out with a statement condemning trump saying he was sickened. that was followed by other republican leaders with very strongly worded statements including mitch mcconnell the senate majority leader saying they were repugnant and unacceptable. kevin mccarthy saying there's no place for the language. senator john mccain says there are no excuses. rubio says it's impossible to justify. reince priebus says no woman should ever be talked about that way. none of these top republicans unendorsed trump. later in the night as has been mentioned, other republican leaders did begin to rescind their support, including many republicans from utah seeming to lead the way. the governor the former governor and congressman jason chaffetz, others saying it's over i can no longer support trump. many of them and others calling for trump to be replaced at the top of the ticket.
6:06 am
some suggesting mike pence. mike pence will be on stage with paul paul ryan later today. >> jacob rascon thank you. no doubt all of this will be coming up during the second presidential debate tomorrow night in st. louis. hillary clinton and donald trump face off on msnbc. we'll be streaming it live on coverage begins at 9:00 eastern 6:00 pacific tomorrow night. let's go to our other big story of the morning. a different kind of storm. hurricane matthew. it has now been downgraded to a category 2 but it is still packing a powerful punch and currently hammering south carolina. let's head back to charleston where chris jansing has the latest. chris, good morning. downgrading to a category 2 does not mean charleston is out of the woods. how bad is it? >> as a matter of fact officials say the worst is yet to come. we've already seen some pretty widespread damage. i'm not quite sure what that cracking was right now. we've already felt the winds
6:07 am
whipping up. the rain is coming down and here's the problem. take a look down here. we already have flooding. there have been dozens of streets, this a very rare car that's about to come by. dozens of streets that are flooded. i-95 in both directions is impassable. having said that over at the water front, it's low tide and yet the water is six feet above normal. this afternoon, when it reaches high tide it's just about the time that the eyewall is expected to pass here in charleston. that's the real concern. that's why governor nikki haley said she upped the number of national guards that they're deploying here as the rain starts to come down heavily to 3500. they were evacuating people going door to door. about 335,000 people took advantage of it and in fact a number of the shelters have seen a significant number of people there. but what they're telling people who have hunkered down in their homes is to stay there. people were mostly adhering to a
6:08 am
curfew overnight. we saw almost no one out except for police officers. there are some areas where they haven't really figured out how people are doing, particularly those barrier islands. at least 90,000 people without power that number expected to rise. a lot power crews are here from as far away as texas. they are in place for when this all ends. again, they're looking at noon 1:00 for the worst of the flooding downed power lines. and as you can see, while this has been coming in waves, right now, the wind and rain is coming down pretty significantly. they're waiting to see exactly what happens in the next three or four hours. stephanie? >> thanks chris. we did just learn it's been downgraded to a category 1 with winds up to 85 miles an hour. let's head to georgia, that state getting pounded overnight. rehema ellis is in savannah with more on that. good morning. >> good morning. take a look down the street. we talked about the widespread power outages. looking down here there are traffic lights but you see no
6:09 am
light with the exception of a police cruiser that is down possibly assessing the damages. we're going to see a lot of that throughout the area in the morning. let's turn here. these power outages and downed trees, it's spotty. over in this section, you can see some of the trees have come down. look down the street. we have power, at least to the traffic light. in the building next to it which was our hotel, there's no power. according to the georgia power company, it is widespread power outages with something like 260,000 people along the coastline without power. here in this county alone, we are told that about 134,000 people have no power. many people did heed the order to evacuate. authorities tell us here in savannah about 134,000 people something like 75% of the county did decide to leave the area in order to get to safer ground. if we just turn a little bit over here you can see that one of the few cars that are passing through the streets but the
6:10 am
trees, there's still movement in terms of the wind and just on the other side of that is the savannah river. the river is moving at a fast pace. that's because of these gusting winds that we get from time to time. we're told they're going up to 46 maybe 50 miles per hour. a lot of assessment will be going on in this community today as they try and figure out exactly how widespread the damage is and when they can tell people it's time for them to go back home. >> rehema thank you. be safe. >> rehema ellis in savannah. let's get to dylan dryer, national hurricane center put out new coordinates. what are we seeing now? >> it has been downgraded to a category 1, winds up to 85 miles per hour. it is very very close to charleston though we have not gotten reports that making official landfall just yet. it's sitting 20 miles to the south/southeast of charleston and moving to the northeast. so want to point out just how
6:11 am
much rain is falling. the torrential downpours in charleston right now and you can see all across northeastern parts of south carolina the rain is coming down very, very heavily. we also now have a tornado watch in effect until 4:00 p.m. because with some of thesen bads of rain you could get enough energy to produce and spin up those tornadoes. right now we're still getting gusts up near 87 miles per hour in hilton head charleston seeing win gusts up near 52 miles per hour. some of the highest gusts have been hurricane force. tybee island georgia, 96 mile per hour wind gusts. that's the gust coming off the water, pushing the water onshore and high tide at the same time of those gusts came at just the right time to produce that significant flooding with more than a 12-foot storm surge. as you go through the day today. we're still looking at tropical storm force winds with higher gusts. this will continue to ride along the coast of south and eventually north carolina. cape hatteras will be battered by some of the wind gusts as well. norfolk, virginia we could see
6:12 am
gusts up to 40 50 miles per hour. it's all about the storm surge. it's the push of water that comes onshore. the next high tide in charleston is 1:55 this afternoon. the good thing is the storm should be moving on at that point. it's not going to hit at the worst time like it did in tybee eye lap ed island, georgia. here's the latest from the national hurricane center maintaining it as here on out a category 1 storm as it skirts past the carolina coastline. it should eventually downgrade to a tropical storm by sunday afternoon as it loops back around and turns into a tropical depression as it approaches the bahamas once again. we are watching the rain throughout the rest of the afternoon, flash flooding is possible as well. it's eventually going to combine with the cold front. that will help push it out to sea. it's also meaning that it's going to draw in some of the tropical moisture. we should see rainfall as far north as new jersey eastern long island and up into southeastern massachusetts tonight and throughout the day on sunday.
6:13 am
guys? >> dylan, we'll be back in a bit. thank you for the update. hurricane matthew tore through much of florida and east coast on friday. this morning those residents are starting the tough job of cleaning up the damage that matthew left behind. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in st. augustine, florida with more. good morning, gabe. cleanup time. >> this is known as the nation's oldest city. today it is a ghost town. thankfully the waters have receded. there are uprooted trees and power lines. authorities are assessing the damage after that violent storm surge. >> reporter: this morning, hurricane matthew was taking aim at georgia and the carolinas after scraping the last of the florida coast. communities from st. augustine to jacksonville beach pummeled by devastating storm surge, brutal winds toppling this church steeple. >> take a look at the power of this storm. it uprooted this massive tree and slammed it on to this house. it's now taking on water. >> i have holes in the roof and
6:14 am
