7:00 am
good morning. breaking news. hurricane matthew slamming florida's east coast right now as a major category 3. the strongest storm to hit that state in a decade. wind gusts up to 115 hour. power knocked out to hundreds of thousands. a sandy-like storm surge expected. airports, schools, famed theme parks all shut down, and the today is friday, october 7th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is a special edition of
7:01 am
live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today". 7:00 on the west coast, 10:00 on the east coast. the irony of the coverage, the people most dramatically impacted of the storm probably can't watch, probably don't have power this morning. >> high winds, storm surge the real concern this morning. let's get to the very latest on this storm. overnight matthew did weaken ht powerful category 3 hurricane with 120 mile an hour sustained winds. the good news for florida this morning the path shifted slightly east. the bands, though, are still lashing the coast at this hour. >> here's the number we talked about, nearly 600,000 people in that state already without power this morning. that number probably will grow throughout the day. >> here's a disturbing reminder of how powerful and destructive this storm has already been.
7:02 am
has now skyrocketed to at least 572 people. >> we have correspondents spread out all across the storm zone. al is going to be tracking the storm, we'll get to him in a moment. let's begin with ron mott being hit hard in daytona beach. ron, good morning to you. how are you doing? >> reporter: matt and savannah, good morning to you. obviously, the calm before the storm is over. we're now officially in the thick of hurricane matthew. we have to be mindful as you mighim checking on the front side of our hotel, things are falling off. this hotel and buildings surrounding it. and it's remarkable, but there are people out there driving on the streets. don't know their stories or why they are out there, but they are taking a significant risk by going out in this weather. now, we can tell you that the sea is our main concern here. the wind, obviously, is going to do some damage, but it's the storm surge. i don't know how well you can see it, high tide, the next high
7:03 am
hours from now, and it's based on how the sea is performing right now, guys, it is clear we're going to get some flooding. all this water is going to rush into the streets and these water inlets, which leads inland to the intercoastal waterway, where there's a lot of property and probably a lot of people hunkered down. we have lost power at our hotel here. we're now on back-up generator and this is when you're going to see the misery index spike considerably, because now people the battery level in their cell phones to communicate with their loved ones outside this area and those batteries are going to drain fairly quickly if they don't have any sort of back-up power sources. so the next three or four hours is very critical for daytona beach. one of the things you mentioned is fortunately the eye is not going to pass over land here. it's going to remain out over sea. the question is, just how far out it is.
7:04 am
back to you. >> a lot of the creature comforts you take advantage of or for granted are going out the window. ron, thank you. >> lester holt is about 90 miles to the south of where ron is in daytona in melbourne this morning. good morning, how was it there? >> reporter: well, the worst of it was probably about 5:00 this morning when we saw the power started flickering and finally it went off. many parts of this area, of course, without power, some do have it. we ventured out to take a and saw sparks and arcs of light indicative of transformers exloading, so scary scene before dawn. the wind has died down as we're on the backside of the storm now, but the storm surge continues to be an issue. over my shoulder is the indian river that leads out to the ocean and we have watched that now, especially in the lower areas, begin to overtop on to the roadway. there are homes just up the way
7:05 am
flooding, but flooding, obviously, a major concern here right now. in terms of damage, we haven't seen any significant damage. again, our limited point of view, too dangerous to get out and we're staying close to here, but not any significant damage. signs down, certainly some trees down in areas, but no homes or buildings that we can see have suffered damage. in fact, one of the crews went out to the beach side itself and didn't see any signs of serious damage there, as well. likely because as we've been farther to the east than first anticipated, so not the full force of this hurricane, but certainly a pretty wicked punch here as it continues up from melbourne, up to where we heard that report in north towards the carolinas. back to you in new york, savannah? >> no doubt, relief from where you are lester, thank you. >> shortly after matthew hit southern florida, tens of thousands of people began to lose power. the outages have grown as the winds have picked up over the
7:06 am
beach, florida. miguel, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning. that torrent of rain has finally stopped hitting us, but the wind has been brutal. a short time ago we saw lightning bolts in the air, transformers explode. take a look at the palm trees, they are still swaying in the wind and also some damage up on rooftops. this storm is still packing quite a powerful punch, and there is more to come. overnight, hurricane matthew slammed into florida's coast with fury. powerful storm bringing heavy rain and high winds. gusts so strong, sheriff's deputies had to get themselves out of harm's way. in palm beach, live power lines were knocked to the ground sending sparks flying into the street. across the region, transformers exploding, illuminating the night sky. governor rick scott deploying thousands of national guard
7:07 am
did not heed warnings to evacuate. >> i've activated 3,500 national guards members. this is over a half -- over 50% of the available troops. this is the most i've ever had to activate. >> reporter: during the brunt of this storm, it wasn't just the winds that were violent but the rain came from different directions. if there was one piece of good news, most people were at home and hunkered down. thousands took shelter at nearby schools. hundreds of pets housed with their owners. price gouging. while drivers rushed to fill their tanks before leaving town. for many, the roads have been the only way out. all flights at miami international canceled. in orlando, disney world is shut down again today. still, despite all of the warnings, some decided to stay behind. >> i've got food, i've got water. i've got flashlights.
7:08 am
>> reporter: residents preparing for the worst stocked up on supplies. grocery store shelves throughout the state, cleaned out. as matthew approached, the weather channel delivered this blunt warning to those who refused to leave. >> this is not hype. this is not hyperbole and i am not kidding. do not assume you can survive if you choose to stay. >> reporter: with power still out in this region, the heavy situation. utility crews from all across the area are working their way here. the streets for the most part are still deserted. luckily, many heeding the e vkuation orders. matt and savannah, back to you guys. >> thanks very much. >> that brings us to al in our makeshift hurricane center in the orange room. what do you have your eye on? >> we're watching right now the eye and you can see right here the eye of this system is just about 40 miles, i'd say, 41
7:09 am
and the other interesting thing is this is where we're really starting to worry about the storm surge. you can see all the heavy rain, heavier precipitation is wrapping around and going to start piling up in between daytona and jacksonville, and that's where the storm surge we're most worried about. right now still a category 3 storm 30 miles east/southeast of daytona, north/northwest forward movement at 14 miles per hour. clears daytona later this afternoon and then jacksonville is under the gun, brunswick, savannah, but late tonight, early tomorrow morning, it hugs the coast. right now we still don't see it actually making landfall. sunday morning early it's off the north carolina coast, then it starts to curve around and comes back by wednesday as a tropical storm toward the bahamas. so it's not unheard of, but it's rare that this happens. here's what we're looking at as far as the impacts. seven to 11-foot storm surge,
7:10 am
savannah, and on up towards the south carolina, north carolina border. up to 15 inches of rain from florida into the carolinas, hurricane force winds along the coast. we expect this to move away from the coast by sunday, but again, the big problem, the storm surge. melbourne, up to savannah, seven to 11 feet on top of high tide, as you heard ron mott talking about, charleston, four to six feet, and further into myrtle beach, on towards wilmington, only about two to four feet. also flash flood watches now are all the way to virginia. all this rain, 7.7 million people at risk, guys, so again, big thing we're worried about, though, is the storm surge. that's where most deaths, injuries, and damage actually occur during the storm surge. we'll look at that in depth coming up later. >> al, thank you so much. little earlier we spoke with florida's governor rick scott, the guy who had been sounding
7:11 am
and here's what he told us. >> good morning. if you're in the jacksonville area, you're going to see a lot of storm surge. you still have time to evacuate. there is no reason to be taking risks. we've been working to get every one to evacuate if you can. we got a lot of people evacuate. they are still seeing hurricane-force winds. i'm trying to make sure we don't lose one life. the most important thing to me is we do not lose one life. >> governor, i listened to your warnings yesterday. you didn't mince words at all. you said this storm will kill you. if you've been told to get out, get out. i know it is hard at night because people who hunker down don't tend to advertise that they're hunkering down. do you have any idea how many people heeded your warnings and how many people didn't? >> well, we have 20,000 people in shelters right now, but a lot of people went inland. a lot of people went to the west coast. our hotels are pretty much filled out. we did a good job. highways stayed open. we had a little bit of congestion. we have fuel throughout the state. we have a few stations without fuel for a period of time, but people had the opportunity to
7:12 am
i think most people did. we're going to see some -- coming daylight, we'll see how much damage we've got. about 400,000 homes without power right now. >> we just heard al talking about the danger of the storm surge which people sometimes forget is really the heart of what can be dangerous during a storm like this. is that your number one concern at this hour? >> absolutely. if you look at the l hurricane we had which was just a category 1, we had up to ten foot of storm surge in the panhandle. there is a lady south of tallahassee, she didn't evacuate. we finally got out of her house. if she wouldn't have gotten out, she would have passed away. it is worse. we'll have up to 12 feet of storm surge and waves on top of that. jacksonville has a lot of low-lying areas. if you have a chance to evacuate, you need to get out now.
7:13 am
evacuation zone, you've got to get out. save your life. that's what i say about everybody's life. >> governor, i know you spoke to the president yesterday, he declared the coastal areas a federal disaster area. what does that mean for you? what resources will it open up for you? >> the first thing we asked for is food, water, tarps. yesterday we asked for some pumping support, things like that, generators. i've also been talking to the head of the army corp of engineers in the southeast, general turner. we need power support. i've been talking to you are o utilities. but people are working well together right now. we'll assess our damage. but right now my biggest concern is save every life. save every life. if you've got a family, take care of yourself. >> florida governor rick scott, it is an incredibly busy morning for you so we're so happy to have your time, sir. thank you and good luck today. >> thank you.
7:14 am
>> they've got a lot on their plate this morning, nice of the governor to take some time. >> absolutely. we'll turn to politics now. peter alexander is at the white house with more of the response effort. good morning. >> good morning to you. both the candidates are preparing for the second event this weekend, the so-called sequel in st. louis, town hall style event. they both sent messages of prayer and said they are looking out for the people throughout the southeast coast right now. the trump campaign the campaign described it to me, but because the campaign picked the crowd, the questions, obviously, were softballs. trump insists otherwise, but sure looked like a dress rehearsal. there was even a two-minute timer clock on the floor by his feet. hillary clinton, for her part, has no public events scheduled
7:15 am
she's been preparing with senior advisers. a poor performance from trump and there are already rumblings that congressional republicans may have to distance themselves from him, start campaigning as a check on hillary clinton. one note that's interesting in the midst of this powerful storm, how matthew could potentially impact voting. the clinton campaign requested florida's voter registration deadline be extended past next tuesday, but florida's republican governor rick scott, who's the chairman of the super pac supporting donald trump everybody that's had a lot of time to register. still, south carolina extended its deadline because of the hurricane and evacuations. matt, savannah, one more note, the president right now being briefed in the oval office by the chief of fema, craig fugate and jeh johnson, as well, he's going to be delivering remarks about the storm just a short time from now. >> peter, we know you'll be watching that, thank you. got some new developments in
7:16 am
the ntsb announced the train sped up to 21 miles per hour shortly before it crashed into the terminal. that is twice the speed limit. then went airborne, the engineer has told investigators he has no memory of the incident. one woman was killed, more than 100 others were injured in that crash. breaking news overnight out of minnesota. two people were killed in a helicopter crash near the twin cities. witnesses reported seeing the helicopter's blades stop turning just before it went down, and, of course, an investigation is now under way. >> all right. obviously, been a busy morning for mr. roker. he has more of his forecast. >> that's right, we're looking at the rest of the country and hurricane matthew, of course, the big story. sunshine up in northern new
7:17 am
weather down through texas. in southern california, the southwest, it's going to be windy. we have high fire danger, it's dry, a real mess there. we're looking at also some wet weather stretching its way, making its way from the pacific
7:18 am
ese es el pron?stico del >> they are, bse the track 50 miles either way can make a big difference, especially closer to the coast. we could be talking about a completely different story. >> you'd almost rather it cut across land and lose a lot more power. >> right. right now it's still out there. we are probably going to be talking about this into the weekend. >> and heading for the low lying areas is what's really scary right now. coming up, a lot more of the live coverage of hurricane matthew as the deadly storm hammers florida. yes, it is inching towards georgia and south carolina.

. >> kim: it is 7:26 on this friday morning, october 7th. hi, there. i'm kim wagner coming to you while we watch matthew continue to pound the east coast, nothing but chamber of commerce weather here, kelly curran, look at this as we speak. >> it's absolutely gorgeous weather with blue skies, on the cool side stepping out the door, north las vegas, 57, same for spring valley, henderson, 62 degrees right now, but this afternoon, fantastic. we're looking at a high of 84 degrees and this weekends are
7:27 am
sunday. monday, colombus day, i've taken out the chance of showers for las vegas, but south of the las vegas valley in the higher terrain, showers with 89 high. >> it ain't chamber of commerce traffic, i tell you that. we have traffic pulled to the side on the las vegas boulevard entrance to the 95 north, however, it was blocking travel lanes for a while with the back-up on eastern avenue and gridlock for a while all the way back to charleston, moving now, but slow, but take you about half an hour almost to get in and also now the 15 is getting busy, as well, and that is normal rush hour traffic, but definitely not chamber of commerce on the roads. >> kim: no, but at least we don't have flight restrictions in place because we have a democratic vice-presidential candidate in town and when the person is at the and the of the ticket like the actual president like when barack obama was
7:28 am
tim kaine was here and he spoke with our jim snyder and did the only interview with donald trump in town and yucca mountain because topic of discussion for donald trump and tim ray steiber: i was in charge of homicide. i know when something's not right. the attacks on question 1 are wrong. question 1 protects the right of law abiding nevadans to bear arms. carry. hunt. protection. it's all there. doesn't change.
7:29 am
what changes is convicted felons can't run to a gun show or go online and buy guns without background checks. that will save lives. yes on 1.
7:30 am
we're back at 7:30 on a friday morning, 7th of october 2016. and these are the conditions in daytona beach as matthew, the most powerful hurricane to hit florida in a decade, is raking the florida coast ase gusts of up to 150 miles per hour have been reported. we'll have the latest on the storm and its path in a moment. >> some other stories we want to get to, even storm-related stories. donald trump and hillary clinton's campaigns have rushed to move staff and volunteers out of harm's way, closing offices and cancelling events. clinton is off the trail today prepaing for sunday's debate.
7:31 am
a practice session for the showdown. a december interest rate hike is more likely following this morning's jobs report. the government reported employers added 156,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate ticked up slightly to 5%. and the jonbenet ramsay case is making new headlines, burke ramsey, her brother, is suing a forensic pathologist for claiming burke killed his 6-year-old sister. the complaint alleges dr. werner spitz said burke bludgeoned jonbenet to death in 1996. burke is seeking $150 million in damages. ron mott is in daytona beach. he's been up against it all morning. ron, still not looking good there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. we're starting to see property
7:32 am
i want to show you down here, this is part of our hotel here. you can see a hole in the part of the wall of the structure that comes out, would not be surprised once the wind gets in there, the rest is going to go down by the end of this storm. going to have you pan over here to the left, this is the real concern for us at daytona beach now for the next two-plus hours. this is the ocean, obviously, it is roiling at this point at some point, that water is going to start flowing into the community, atlantic avenue. there isn't much of an elevation rise from the sea to that street, so when high tide hits near 12:45 eastern time, i think it will go from really bad to really awful really quickly, especially for those folks living along the intercoastal waterway and if they are there
7:33 am
water they think is where it should be right now. it can come up very quickly and cause very serious damage. obviously, the surf is -- the surge, i should say, is a main concern in these hurricanes. the most likely culprit for people. sadly, we have heard of our first confirmed fatality in florida several hours south of us, a woman in her late 50s apparently succumbing to some sort of cardiac event. and again, o people when this eye passes, don't just assume that the worst of the storm is over. we are expecting hurricane-force winds, tropical storm force winds, going into the evening and we hope people will go ahead and hunker down where they are. savannah, matt, back to you. >> all right, tense hours for sure, ron, thank you. >> we want to go up the coast to jacksonville where schools and all but essential services are shut down for the storm. nbc's gabe gutierrez is there.
7:34 am
were hearing were really talking about the city of jacksonville. >> reporter: yeah, that's exactly right, matt, the mayor of jacksonville ordered 450,000 people to evacuate. we thaerd from officials this morning and all those evacuations have gone well for the most part, but some people chose not to heed the warnings. right now i can show you the conditions. they have deteriorated very quickly in the last hour or two. this is where matthew is heading next and what we are seeing rieg now is some torrential rai up and where we expect this to go over the next few hours, this is going to get worse. not as bad here as what we saw in ron mott's live report, but we expect it to intensify here into the afternoon. authorities now expecting winds here up to 80 miles an hour or so. thankfully, they've revised that down a little bit this morning because they were expecting up to 12 feet of storm surge in jacksonville. now they say about nine. still very serious, however, when this was a category 4 storm, it was going to sit just
7:35 am
this was an area even though it's in florida that hadn't seen a storm like that since 1898. thankfully now the storm has weakened just a bit, but still very serious situation here. authorities are warning people to hunker down and to not leave their homes if they haven't left already. again, the situation is deteriorating here, matt and savannah, and we expect the wind and rain to strengthen into the afternoon and then to continue until about midnight. guys, back to you. >> gabe gutierrez, thanks for >> let's go over to al, as matt and gabe was saying, jacksonville is a concern right now. >> that's right. the storm surge is basically ahead of the storm. you'll get these winds pushing all that water up against the shoreline, and it's got nowhere to go, so it literally is the surge of water from the ocean that comes in. so hurricane matthew, 11 feet above high tide, that high tide over the next couple of hours, give you kind of a perspective,
7:36 am
this could be very devastating. as you can see right now, here's the eye of the storm. jacksonville currently is about -- let's measure it out for you right here. here's the eye of the storm, jacksonville is about 108 miles, okay, so they've got a ways to go, moving north, northwest about 14, so you can figure out a few hours to go before the real meat of the storm. florida, moving north/northwest at about 14 miles per hour. these are the winds, areas right now, daytona beach 71, cape canaveral, vero beach, areas of pink and white are the strongest winds. you can see they are up against daytona beach and jacksonville by later this afternoon. we continue during the day, into the night, and into tomorrow,
7:37 am
way along the e soututave a fan. this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lauer and savannah guthrie. >> good morning, everyone, i'm matt lauer along with savannah guthrie. >> moments ago the president addressed what's been happening with hurricane matthew from the
7:38 am
peter alexander is on the white house lawn with more on that. peter, good morning, what did the president have to say? >> reporter: good morning to you. the public comments from the president coming just as he wrapped up his daily briefing alongside the administrator of fema. they can't afford to be complacent, even though last night the storm didn't hit the florida coastline, suggesting people north of jacksonville and the georgia area now have to be on high alert, the president having called the governors of all the states in that region overnight declaring states of emergency in georgia after already having done so in florida. cueing up the tape, the president finishing these remarks a matter of moments ago, what he said, storm surge is one of the biggest concerns. if we can right now, we want to
7:39 am
moments ago in the oval office. >> obviously, everybody has been tracking the course of hurricane matthew, and i just received an update from our fema director, craig fugate, as well as the rest of our national security team, and i just wanted to make a couple of key points. first, what we're seeing now is florida and some of the largest population centers, working its way north, and the big concern that people are having right now is the effect it could have in areas like jacksonville, on through georgia. and we've seen some significant damage in portions of south
7:40 am
storm surge. many of you will remember hurricane sandy, where initially people thought this doesn't look as bad as we thought and then suddenly you get massive storm surge and a lot of people were severely affected. and so i just want to emphasize to everybody that this is still that the potential for storm surge, flooding, loss of life, and severe property damage continues to exist, and people continue to need to follow the instructions of their local officials over the course of the next 24, 48, 72 hours. those of you who live in
7:41 am
there's been a lot of emphasis on florida, but this is going to keep moving north through florida and south carolina, there are large population centers there that could be vulnerable, so pay attention to what your local officials are telling you. if they tell you to evacuate, you need to get out of there and move to higher ground, because storm surge can move very quickly and people can think that they are out of the woods and then suddenly get hit and not be in a position in which ey so, pay attention to local officials. in the meantime, i've been in contact with the governors of all four of the potentially affected states. i want to thank them all for their leadership. there's been strong cooperation between federal and state and local officials. fema has worked diligently to
7:42 am
the hurricane moves north, what craig and his team will be doing is moving those resources and assets further north so that any place that happens to get hit badly will be in a position to immediately come in and help. but i really want to emphasize the governors have been on top of this, state and local officials have been on top of this. they are the ones who are tracking most closely what is community, your particular area. you need to pay attention to them, do what they say, do not be a hold out here, because we can always replace property, but we can't replace lives. i want to thank craig and his whole team, as well as department of homeland security, my own national security team, for really staying on top of this. we're going to monitor this throughout the weekend.
7:43 am
with folks who have been affected. you know, it's -- even if the damage in south florida wasn't as bad as it could be, there are people who have been affected and for them, they are going to need help. last point i'd like to make is we're still tracking what happened in areas like haiti that were hit more directly. haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. battered by a lot of natural disasters to compound what is already great poverty there. we know that hundreds of people have lost their lives and that there's been severe property damage and they are going to need help rebuilding, so i would ask all americans to go to the american red cross and other philanthropic agencies to make
7:44 am
need to do to help people that need it, and we'll continue to provide information if you're interested in how you can help the people of haiti and others. you can go to and we'll provide you some direction in terms of where even the smallest contribution can really make a big difference. all right? thank you very much, everybody. fema is in a good position right now. last year when we were in the midst of budget negotiations. i think that we did a good job of making sure that fema was properly funded and not to make them blush, but we happen to have one of the best public servants in america craig fugate and his team, and they know how to manage their money and use it effectively, so that's not going to be an issue.
7:45 am
assessments with respect to damage. we're still on the front end of this hurricane. we're not on the back end, so we don't know bad damage up. we know severe storm could up and we're not going for three,four, days what the ultimate effects of this are. w significant problems togovernme

8:02 am
the fifth floor has fallen. now, most important is this out here. this is the sea. the atlantic ocean. we just saw one very large break just about the the people of the sea wall leer. the issue is flooding and the surge is between 7 and 11 feet in the area. high tide is on the way and it's 9:45 out there on the west coast when we're going get the highest level of water. there's not much after an elevation and then we do expect the water to push through there, but more important than that, there are a lot of water in lets that goo in land to the inner coastal water and there are a lot of people that live along the water way and if there are folks there, they should brace for the water coming into the homes and try to get to whatever
8:03 am
little warning. the next hours are going to be crucial here and the eye of the storm remain off of land we hope it stays out 50 or 60 miles away and then topping a hundred miles an hour. back up to you. >> okay. ron in daytona thanks a lot. >> daytona getting hit hard. today greg is in melbourne, what does it look like there? >> reporter: well, you mentioned power outages a moment ago. 30 minutes ago there were 640,000 homes without pow o er and that's number has jumped to 715,000 homes without power and expecting that to climb as well.

south carolina under a state of emergency. >> we do want people if they're holding out to go ahead and realize that it's time to move. >> reporter: in the last five minutes we learn that charleston, south carolina is a particular concern to officials. this is a look on crane creek and we're keeping an eye on that see fg that creek starts to spill into the roadway, that's that's not started to happen. that creek spills into the inner coastal water ways. the chief concerns in the parts is that wall of water we're expecting high tide two hours for now. a lot of folks waiting to see anxiously if flooding is a major part of the story. >> thank you. >> let's go over to al, and you

8:08 am
the geography is working against those folks because as the system makes the way up and the winds get pushed this way, the strongest are in the northeast and that's bad news for charleston if this holds. then it does a loop and becomes a tropical storm and makes a v line for the bahamas, so we're going to have to wait and see what happens. this is what we're seeing as the affects. it's seven to 11 foot storm surge and 15 inches of rain from florida to carolinas and then the hurricane force winds along the coast and going to be a real mess. the storm moves away on sunday
8:09 am
and that's the latest weather. >> okay. thank you so much. we're going to put a picture up after the airport there. you see the aircrafts that have obviously sustained some damage in the winds a >> a friend in palm beach said that they got lucky and that's a matter of definition because the winds were tough down there. >> yeah, and moments ago president obama spoke out from the oval office and peter on duty from the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama warning americans not to be fooled in thinking that hurricane matthew is not dangerous anymore.

8:12 am
he said he had no intention of doing that and people would have time to vote. in south carolina the republican governor they have extended the deadline there because of the hurricane and the evacuations. matt and savannah. >> that's all of the headlines this morning out of the white house. just ahead a storm chaser following the hurricane all night long. the price gauging that the

8:22 am
people are going to social media and this one sharing $8.88 per gallon and another one $9.99 a gallon and this store selling bottle water for a whooping $30. >> is this illegal? >> absolutely. cannot raise prices whether it's a hotel room, fuel, commodity or generators. cannot raise prices and that's what these bad people are doing and it's hurting you are citizen in a time of need when they're the most vulnerable. >> no matter where you live we can all learn something from this. price gauging does happen and if you notice it happening during this storm or any other where you live, you want to call the state's attorney general office. they have people out responding in real time.
