7:03 am
hours. it will continue through saturday morning, up to jacksonville as a category 2 storm. again, pounding, pounding the coastline. sunday morning it makes a turn out into the atlantic, but then as we move into monday, it starts to create what we could see a loop. there is another storm system out there that could keep this close to shore. so this is just about as bad a scen a we've got hurricane warnings up from the bahamas, now from miami all the way up into central coastal georgia. 11. people under hurricane warnings, almost 2 million under hurricane watches. 10 to 15-foot storm surge for the bahamas this morning. southern florida starting late tonight, wind gusts 60 to 95 miles per hour. rainfall, three to seven inches with storm surges. a six to nine-foot storm surge

7:32 am
across the area. >> reporter: good morning, guys. we have kind of took a little bit of shelter here. as you can see, we were standing out, pieces of the roof of our hotel started flying off so we had to kind of back up a little bit. but major hurricane matthew is making its way toward nassau rather quickly now, continuing to strengthen. last night when we went to bed it was around 960 millibars in seven hours. waves are starting to crank up pretty big behind us. pieces of roof here are coming off. we have a restaurant right behind where our room is. there goes roof right there. pieces of the roof are flying off of that. so as we continue to go through the morning hours here on nassau, at least for the next eight hours or so, i'm thinking that we are going to deal with some major hurricane conditions that are going to continue to get worse and not get better.
7:33 am
mr. roker is watching all of this over in our hurricane center. hey, al. >> guys, here's a point i want to make. this doesn't necessarily even have to make landfall to cause real damage. in fact, it is forecast to just stay offshore and that's going to be the problem. by tonight we start to see tropical force winds from miami up to west palm beach. then we move in to early tomorrow morning. the eye could get onshore, but even if it doesn't, you can see this area in white. these are between melbourne and west palm beach. we move in to friday night. we're now up around jacksonville. again, right on shore. we are talking about hurricane-force winds. the center of the eye is about 45 miles wide. all right? i should say, it's 25 miles wide. the hurricane-force winds extend out about 45 miles. again, as we move into saturday morning, you've got some those winds from savannah into

7:43 am
frank gore, watching him run 80 yards for a touchdown, then saying did you see that handoff? >> well, first, before i respond to great question, great reference, too, matt, thanks. let me say our haurts and our prayers are very much with the people of florida and haiti as the hurricane matthew approaches. i hope every american is keeping our neighbors to the south in their prayers and in their hearts and we certainly people to support relief efforts that will likely be challenged in the days ahead. but with regard to that, i have to tell you, i got some people think that i won the debate the other night. i leave that to the pundits. but i honestly do believe that donald trump did win debate. it was donald trump's vision that i was describing. it was donald trump's message to make america great again and for me to be able to be there at
7:44 am
sharing the choice that we face as americans was a great honor for me. >> governor, you are getting a lot of credit for your performance at this debate but a lot of people have noticed you spent time denying things that trump said that he did, in fact, say. as one paper put it, it's a clinton attack ad waiting to happen and, sure enough, take a look. >> let's start with not praising vladimir putin as a great leader. donald trump and mike pence have said he's a great leader. >> you know -- >> putin's has been a strong leader in russia. >> vladimir putin has been a stronger leader in his country than barack obama has been in this country. >> more nations should get nuclear weapons. try to defend that. >> he never said that. >> wouldn't you rather in a certain sense have joo ja pan have nuclear weapons? >> saudi arabia? >> absolutely. >> governor pence, that ad goes on for more than a minute with a bunch of kron tra dictions. i guess the question is, even though it worked in the moment, was at this time wrong approach
7:45 am
going to come right back to bite you the next day? >> well, i don't think so at all, savannah. the mischaracterizations and the way tim kaine and hillary clinton continue to take donald trump's statements out of context, it was something i just wasn't going to tolerate during the debate. >> those are direct quotes. >> donald trump as i have observe -- tim kaine said that i had said that vlar >> you said stronger. >> i corrected him. >> you said stronger leader. >> i said stronger. and, savannah, there's a difference. he was wrong, i was right. what i was observing is quite frankly that the russian reset has been a disasterous failure for hillary clinton. she said it was her number one priority when she was secretary of state. and now since the russian reset, we've seen vladimir putin exercise -- exercise the kind of
7:46 am
invasion in ukraine and the -- now the humanitarian crisis in syria being driven by russian aggression, relationship that they have with iran. i do think -- i do think observing the small and bullying leader of russia has been stronger on the world stage for his country than hillary clinton and barack obama is just simply a statement of fact and saying that we have to change -- >> governor, on a couple of occasions tim kaine gave comments that donald trump has made over the course of the last year and asked you to defend them. instead of defending them you either said he really didn't say those things or you changed the subject to hillary clinton. do you find it hard -- can you say to us today that you cannot defend some of the things that donald trump has said about women and mexican immigrants and john mccain and the federal judge of mexican heritage?
7:47 am
shoulder with donald trump. what i think most americans saw was that after tim kaine ran through a rapid obviously memorized litany of personal insults, then he said that donald trump and i were running the insult-driven campaign. >> yeah. but in all due respect, governor, you just did it again. >> i told him i'd be happy to go line by line, let him saying that donald trump said something about all a year-and-a-half ago donald trump was talking about the whole issue of criminal aliens in the country. he conveniently omitted that donald trump has said that even many of the people that come in to this country illegally are good people. he left that out. but look, this campaign has been focused on the issues of most importance to the american people. i want to give the moderator a lot of credit in that debate. you all have a tough job out there and you all do it well. i thought elaine did a good job

national security, getting this economy moving again, and so to be honest with you, i'm incredibly proud to be able to stand shoulder to shoulder with donald trump. we'll take on all those things. but i will point out to you that when i pointed out that hillary clinton had called half of donald trump and my supporters a basket of deplorables, tim kaine didn't say a word about that or defend that either. >> he actually did. he said that she had apologized for that statement. energetic debate and i hope the campaign is better for it. >> short question, governor pence. do you think that donald trump is a role model for children? >> i, frankly, think hillary clinton and donald trump have many admirable qualities that young people can look up to today. i think donald trump is a strong leader. he fights for what he believes in. he's man who we learned 20 years
7:49 am
he demonstrated the resilience and the smarts to marshal a real comeback. it is the kind of comeback he can lead for america. and i want to recognize hillary clinton as the first woman to be a major party nominee in american history. so there are aspects of these people -- you know, nobody's perfect. i can only think of one person in human history that's perfect. but i think there is qualities in both of these people that young people can admire. >> to be continued. >> we got to let it go there, unfo appreciate it. >> good to see you. >> thank you. good to be with you. coming up, hurricane matthew matthew gaining strength on a path towards florida. what millions need to do right what millions need to do right

8:25 am
that was the beginning of the mentoring program for women because these young women, most of them are first generation going to college, need a little boost. and they have the academic skills, but they didn't have the rest of the stuff that they should have had to prepare themselves for the world. >> we kind of take off the subject of mentoring, you're known for your nuggets of advice. leave me with a nugget of advice. i hate to put you on the spot, but i'm going to. >> as a parent, you're supposed to figure out what your children do naturally best, what they're naturally adept at, and nurture that so they always have a feeling of confidence and then as they get older and are looking for something, a way to make a living for the rest of their lives, they'll take that thing and figure out how to make a living at what they're naturally adept at, what's been nurtured and cultivated in them as children. that's my best advice.
