7:03 am
carson because he didn't know who you were. >> owh, he didn't know that? >> presenteded by toyota, let's go places. >> welcome to cbs this morning. florida's governor says the destruction from hurricane irma is horrible. video from the air shows the scale of the damage after the giant storm ripped through florida. millions of people who evacuated are starting to go home. crews are bringing aid. but the recovery effort will take weeks or months. >> the storm is blamed for least ten deaths in florida georgia and south carolina. nearly 5.7 million florida utility customers are still without power. look at this before and after images from space show how much of the state was left in the dark. 95,000 floridians are still living in shelters and 10,000 people who rode out the storm in
7:04 am
the florida keys may need to be evacuated. >> after moving through florida, the remains of irma are bringing more rain to southeast and heading toward the ohio valley. serious damage reported as far away as charleston, south carolina. jeff glor is in clearwater, florida. the coast guard's largest air station in the lower 48. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. typically what they do here when a big storm comes through the tampa st. pete area, they'll take the helicopters to other parts of florida. that is miami, key west, maybe jacksonville. this time, because the storm was so big, they had to take all of these helicopters out of the state into new orleans. they are now back, ready to respond to emergencies. but this really was a statewide event with every different city dealing with different issues and it's now moved well beyond florida. from the air, irma's destruction along the florida keys can be
7:05 am
overwhelming. homes became piles of mangled lumber. the hurricanes tore a massive hole in the side of this building in orlando. in miami irma peelled off part of the retractible roof at marlins park, also wrecking dozens of boats. miami beach police say it's still not safe to return. >> downed power line, flooding, trees in dangerous shape and conditions and everyone's very, very tired. so that formula can lead to some real problems. >> reporter: 80 miles south, governor rick scott toured the florida keys and the gulf coast from the air. he's activated all 7,000 members of the florida national guard. >> just because the storm passed, it's not safe. we're going to rescue everybody. but everybody's got to be patient. >> reporter: jacksonville suffered some of the worst flooding after nearly 10 inches of rain. as did naples. hundreds of miles south. we flew in a helicopter east of tampa and saw how the storm transformed farmland into
7:06 am
swampland. >> that is a lot of flooding. >> the equivalent of 7 inches per hour. >> i think everything's intact. >> reporter: people in southwestern florida like jeff pompeo of naples took irma's strongest punch which included 140-mile-an-hour wind gusts. he knows, despite the damage in his neighborhood, and around collier county, the destruction could have been worse. >> how do you prepare for something like this? you don't know until it's over, you know what i mean? we're pretty lucky. >> reporter: the coast guard sent one c-130 plane overnight to the keys to help with communications. they're now sending two more. we watched them leave. those are taking heavy equipment and supplies to the devastated florida keys. >> a lot of work still to be done there of course, thank you very much, jeff. one reporter who made it to the florida keys compared the damage to a war zone, those are his words. most of the low-lying islands are devastated and have no running water or communications.
7:07 am
almost 53,000 utility customers in the keys are without power right now. route 1, the only route in and out, was closed for inspection following the storm. the first people are being allowed back in right this minute. mark strassmann is near route 1 in florida city, gateway to the keys. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there were so many evacuees here who are desperate for the chance to go home and see what's left of that home. today, they're going to get their chance. i want to show you something. this is a look at the long line of cars. these are all keys evacuees who are getting the chance to go home. they go to this police checkpoint, they show their i.d. and they're allowed in. the ban on the upper keys was finally lifted at 7:00 a.m. this morning local time. this is the first stop of the marathon recovery. this is the florida keys in the wake of hurricane irma. a 115 mile stretch of paradise now overwhelmed with debris and destruction. >> totally demolished.
7:08 am
>> reporter: in places like marathon, people's homes were obliterated. >> oh, my gosh. >> reporter: by 130 mile per hour winds and nearly 15 feet of storm surge. >> you want ocean, you're going to have to take the chances. >> reporter: about 30 miles away in key west, irma levelled home, and businesses. sections of the overseas highways, the only route in and out of the key, are inaccessible. crews are racing to clear the road for first responders trying to reach those who need help. county officials say the 42 bridges that span the keys need to be inspected before all the keys can be reopened. about half those bridges were reported safe by monday evening. >> they continue to evaluate the infrastructure, the roadways, the health hazards that they find prior to allowing residents to come in. >> reporter: but frustrated floridians are running out of patience and just want to get home. >> i have water, i have food, i
7:09 am
have dogs, and i can't get to my house. >> this should have been thought out a while ago. >> we don't know where to go! >> marathon! >> we don't know! >> reporter: this long line of evacuees returning home had lined up before day break. there were hundreds of them at 7:00 a.m. when the gates first opened. these folks know they're probably in for a rough, rude awakening. but that's okay. there are three navy ships positioned off the east coast of florida including an aircraft carrier to help with recovery. the governor's urging patience. just the upper keys residents are being allowed in, not the lower keys. this will go on for days. >> as irma moved north, it cautioned severe coastal flooding in georgia and south carolina. at least two people died in georgia when storm surge and rain flooded communities. irma sent four feet of ocean water into downtown charleston, south carolina. the ocean level reached nearly 10 feet above normal.
7:10 am
in charleston, where the storm surge was one of the highest recorded in a century. >> reporter: people here in charleston were prepared for what may have been hurricane force winds but what they got here, what the real headline was, was a tide that became fueled by the storm surge from irma, the tide was the third highest in the city's history. the water came spilling from the pashley river on to the battery here in charleston. get a look at the video from white point garden, inundated with saltwater as it rushed in like a raging river. how about waterfront park? benches that looked like they were sitting in the middle of a lake. people on boats navigating their way through the city. further south in savannah, georgia, more than 400,000 people were forced to evacuate there and elsewhere along the georgia coastline. back here in south carolina, the governor had 55 shelters on call, standby, ready to go. they only needed to use about 25. by the way, as for the record
7:11 am
that was set here in charleston, the tide was the third highest. but get this, the third highest tide and the fourth highest tide both happened within the last two years. >> thank you, david. irma also caused some of jacksonville's worst flooding in more than 150 years. the st. john's river rose into the downtown area and several neighborhoods. the coast guard and firefighter rescued dozens of people. in jacksonville, victims are waiting for the water to recede. >> reporter: good morning. in this riverside community, these folks here got that floodwater the worst. the mayor said things could actually get worse because this floodwater's expected to rise and fall gradually over the next several days. the st. john's river flowed into downtown jacksonville and riverfront communities. the national weather service called it a serious event.
7:12 am
>> we've passed historic levels. the levels will continue to rise. >> we're in rescue mode. >> reporter: jacksonville mayor said mandatory evacuationings were ordered on friday. >> there are some that didn't evacuation. certain area, many areas along the river. combine that with the fact that we have had historic unprecedented storm surge. >> reporter: emergency crews including the coast guard and local firefighters combed through neighborhoods looking for people trapped by rising waters. more than 100 have been rescued. >> this is unbelievable because we haven't had it like this before. >> reporter: southeast of jacksonville, hurricane irma sent beach homes sliding into the sand. and in nearby atlantic beach, powerful winds toppleled dozens of trees. this one barely missing donna's home. she says she and her husband planned to stay at a hotel but the hotel closed due to evacuation orders. >> so we kind of hunkered down
7:13 am
and it was fine until this happened. thank goodness it's not, you know, it didn't hit us at all. >> reporter: now, about 150,000 people are without power. 150,000 homes, rather. and the situation, again, is still not exactly going t get any better because of these floodwaters that are in these neighborhoods. but officials are telling folks to be careful. there are a lot of downed trees. there's a lot of debris everywhere. so right now, we're really looking at the clean-up phase which starts today. >> oh, boy, a lot of work to do. j jericka, you be careful too, thank you. gas shortages along with blocked roads and traffic delays are making the drive home very difficult for many evacuees. adrianna diaz is in orlando where many gas stations are running out of fuel. >> reporter: good morning. many of the stations throughout the state still don't have gas like this chevron. they still have the plastic wrap
7:14 am
wrapped around the pump. that's protection to keep the nozzle from flying off during the storm. now, the situation is spotty. this station still has no gas but the one across the street does have gas. what happened is with the massive evacuation ahead of the storm, people were rushing to gas stations to fill their tanks, fill their gas cans and now tens of thousands are rushing back home. many of them going to stations that still have no gas. that's creating long likes at the stations that do have gas. part of the problem is that some of the ports here in florida are still closed so the state isn't getting as much new fuel as it normally does. according to the tracking site gas buddy, more than 40% of stations here in orlando have no gas. more than 65% of stations in gainesville have no gas. and more than 60% of stations in miami and fort lauderdale have no gas. so there is some good news here. the port in tampa's expected to reopen this afternoon. there are actual vessels waiting
7:15 am
offshore with gas, waiting make those deliveries once the port reopens. >> all right, thank you so much, adrianna. 11 of florida's major airports are reopening this morning after irma forced them to close. more than 14,000 flights have been cancelled in florida and the caribbean since marriage's impact. more than 10,000 of those were in florida alone. at hartsfield-jackson airport in atlanta, the world's busiest airport, 1,800 flights have been canceled. chris van cleave is at miami international airport where a limited number of flights are taking off and landing this morning. chris, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. flipts are coming and going here at miami international once again. these are some of the people that will be among the first to get out after irma. airports in ft. lauderdale, west palm, jacksonville, orlando and tampa, all plan on reopening today as well. ft. myers is without power. it hopes to reopen tomorrow. several concourses here at mia suffered water damage during the storm. some ceiling tiles also fell in
7:16 am
the gate areas. to reopen, the airlines flew in planes with staff crew and supplies yesterday. the tsa also had to fly in people to make sure they had enough folks to staff their checkpoints. crews here at the airport had to make sure the airport's jet fuel supply was not contaminated and was still working after the storm. now, it is a limited schedule today. so not all flights are going to go. check your airport. check your flight status before you head out to make sure you have a flight. >> chris, thanks. irma weakened and is now a post-tropical cyclone. it moved through the northern part of florida to tennessee yesterday. rain bands now span from arkansas to ohio. the storm lasted 13 days as a tropical system. it may cause flooding in parts of north carolina. up to 3 inches of rain could fall in just a few hours. president trump's former chief strategist vows to go after vulnerable republican senators in next year's midterm elections. just weeks after leaving the white house, steve bannon is
7:17 am
targeting the republicans he views as standing in the way of the president's agenda. he promises to use his influence to support more populist challengers. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with bannon's plan and gop reation to that plan. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yes, some republicans worry that bannon is going to cost them their narrow senate majority. they believe that the candidates he favors would not fare well against democrats in swing states. but bannon insists he isn't hurting the party. he's remaking it. >> people that are not supporting the president's agenda that are coming up for election in '18, they ought to understand they're going to get primaried. >> reporter: bannon issued this warning to republican lawmakers who crossed the president. >> there's not going to be an opportunity to be a never trumper, okay, you're either going to get with the president's program and have his back or be held accountable.
7:18 am
>> and maybe have a primary challenger? >> absolute, 100%. >> reporter: bannon vowed to take down arizona senator flake, alabama senator strange and nevada senator dean heller. he's backing more populist or conservative challengers like danny tarkanian. he has run unsuccessfully for office in nevada five times and met with bannon last week. >> he told me that he and breitbart is going to be 100% in my race and supportive of me. and we can count on them. >> reporter: now that he's not in the white house, bannon is free to use his ties to wealthy donors and his widely read website to fire warning shots at republicans like tennessee senator bob corker who recently said the president lacked stability and competence. corker is debating whether to run again in 2018. some top republicans like john mccain view bannon's threats as a nuisance. do you think party would be stronger if several incumbents were unseated? that's what he believes.
7:19 am
>> i'm supposed to comment on what steve bannon believes? good night. >> reporter: but other republicans don't dismiss bannon's plans quite that easily as one top republican aide put it to me, nora, every dollar that bannon spends on one of these primaries is a dollar that republicans need to spend protecting their incumbents, instead of going after democrats. >> nancy, thank you. onmccain, never one to mince words. >> i like that tactic, just say good night, conversation over. >> the parents of a teenager on the verge v becoming an eagle scout filed a wrongful death lawsuit after he died during a hike. ahead, why they say the boy scouts ignored their own safety we had quite the action-packed light night last night. with thousands of flashes of lightning. the storm system now has moved to the north.

time my house. >> and hurricane harvey nearly destroyed her home. >> going back to school she says will be a rel woman relief for her and her students. >> i think we're going to cope together. they're going to want to do something different than clear out their house, or you know, be stuck at home because their parents are out cleaning out the house. they're going to want to do something. >> what did you miss the most? >> playing. >> the tireless efforts of school employees made it possible to reopen houston area schools two weeks after hurricane harvey hit. but most agree it's the students who are bringing those communities back to normal. >> how resilient are these kids. >> you know, i was very surprised at how well they've handled this. i as a 30-year-old woman was very upset about this but my six-year-olds are doing very well.
8:37 am

now know how there are people that vulnerability are important that they kind of walk into it, a, that's not me and i don't hang out with people like that. for me, it was a year long street fight. it was a slugfest. nu vulnerability pushed. i fought back but probably won my fight back. >> that's a portion of one of the most popular talks. the 2010 discussion about the power of vulnerability is the fourth viewed ted talk of all time.
8:44 am
it has been viewed 31 million times. brown has spent more than a decade sharing shame and vulnerability. today she's out with a new book. it's called braving the wilderness. the quest for true belonging and the courage to stand alone. true belonging doesn't require you to stand who you are, it requires you to be who you are. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i'm fascinating with your title. because those to me are two competing ideas, yet, you say they're both important. >> yeah, and the research took me by surprise. i thought belongings was something we associate with groups of people. as it turns out men and women who have the deepest sense of true belongings are the people who have the courage to stand alone. they are willing to maintain their integrity and risk
8:45 am
disconnection in order to stand up for what they believe in. >> under no circumstances would you want to change who you are? >> what emerged as the greatest barrier for belonging, fitting in. we assess the situation and we acclimate. and so real belonging requires us to be authentically ourselves and very difficult in their po larized environment. >> growth is a part of everyone so it's not about not ever changing who you are. it's about changing to be accepted. that's the part of the belongings. >> but you say now we're turning away from each other. we're turning away from each other. we're going to blame and rage. blame and rage becomes anger and that's all part of the pain that we're experiencing. fear leads to terrorism that
8:46 am
we're all deeply afraid. >> one of the other big shocks is looking at these two tracks of research that we see emerging across the world globally is one, we are more sorted than we've ever been in the history of the u.s. we're more likely to go to school with people who are politically and ideal logically like minded. you would think it would be closer ties, more connection. but as it turns out as sorting grows so does loneliness so we're becoming more lonely as we're becoming more -- >> what you read, what you watch, what you hear. >> what's interesting about what happens is it's not -- it's counter fit connection. the only thing we have in common
8:47 am
is we hate the same people. >> you worry about holding hands with strangers. explain what you mean. >> one of the things that emerged is that a belief in human connection is a fundamental part of connection. that is not breakable but we can forget at times. i mean, as a houstonian, we were just massively reminded, there was no one, my husband was in a kayak pulling neighbors out of their house, at no times -- i was in a shelter. at no time did people say what is your political belief? we need reminders, collective joy and pain, repieminders that are connected by something greater than us and whether it's music on concerts or disaster
8:48 am
relief. >> you talk about dehumanization, but that's what you see a lot of people doing now. >> dehumanization is at every center of every genocide in history. and it's a very subtle process. it is about moving a group of people because we're hard wired to not be able to hurt each other. we are hard wired neurobiologically to not be able to kill, and hurt ieeach other. we have to move people out of moral inclusion. we have to move them out of what we see as humanity and you know where that starts? consistently, it starts with language and if you go on twitter today or facebook or any social, we see people on the left and right using dehumanizing language about each other like that. and it is terrifying.
8:49 am
and i think in the end it can't be are you conservative or liberal right or left. are you dehumanizing or are you not? >> it's so easy to all get along but we're not. so if you could say one sentence on what ke could do to change it and i know it's more than one sentence, but your ear a good talker. give us a good sen stanctence. >> the thing that moves away faster than anything else is not politics but fear. >> i could talk to you all day. thank you so much for being here. braving the wilderness is on sale now. you're watching "cbs this morning." did you know when you buy any bag of dog or cat food at petsmart we give a meal to a pet in need?
