hurricane matthew is still a force to be reckoned with tonight. the massive storm has weakened some, but it is still very dangerous as it heads towards savannah, georgia. >> republican presidential candidate donald trump under fire again. this time for comments he made years ago degrading women. as the chicago cubs are on top, not the giants after the first game of their national league playoff series with a score of 1-0 a. busy friday night. good evening everyone i'm frank somerville.
>> hello i'm heather holmes in tonight for julie haener. we're going to begin with hurricane matthew. the state of florida avoided a direct hit today, but the storm surge caused flooding especially here in daytona beach. matthew brushed along the coast of florida, but never turned inland. still four deaths in florida are blamed on the hurricane. tens of thousands are without power. in haiti the scope of the devastation from the storm is just coming in to focus. the death toll has reached a staggering 842 people. many of the victims were killed by flying debris as winds of 145 miles an hour just tore through the area on tuesday. tens of thousands of people are now in shelters. we have team coverage tonight. our chief meteorologist bill martin will show us where the storm is turning right now. first joel waldman is getting pounded by rain. joel? >> reporter: frank and heather good evening to you. just as we come on live the lights behind us are
flickering. across the savannah river there is an island over there. we can hear like the alarm there. you can see the lights flashing. so perhaps power outages are starting to be seen across this area. we're kind of confined here to river street in savannah, which is one of the lowest lying area. the big concern from everyone continues to be the storm surge. >> we have evacuated or in the process of evacuating 174 medical facilities now at this point. >> reporter: hurricane matthew continues to roar up the east coast. along the way it has knocked out power to more than a million people as being blamed for multiple -- multiple deaths here in the united states. >> there is a potential significant -- there's potential significant flooding that could happen. >> reporter: it could still bring 15 inches of rain along with the storm surge up to nine
feet in some areas. concerned about potentially deadly flooding and storm surges late friday south carolina's governor issued this stern warning. >> if you are in a low lying area or in any of those coastal areas, get to your highest floor of your house. >> reporter: in the meantime u.s. troops are now mobilizing to offer help in haiti where hundreds are dead and thousands are now homeless because of the storm. back here in the u.s. initial insurance industry estimates suggest hurricane matthew could cost between $25 billion to $30 billion making it the second costliest u.s. hurricane on record. >> it is possible that the hurricane could do the kind of damage that katrina did. >> reporter: there is a dust-to- dawn curfew in effect. the good news, we haven't seen any people out here in the streets at all. the mandatory curfew went into effect yesterday. the first mandatory curfew back
in 1999 when hurricane floyd sidestepped savannah making its way to charleston. >> joel waldman in savannah, thank you so much. now to our chief meteorologist bill martin tracking the storm's strength and its track. bill? >> that's right, the storm is still a major hurricane. this is the rain, pardon me that fell out. the winds came out earlier today and last night in jacksonville and daytona beach. this is where the hurricane is now and this is where the problem lies. you can see the curvature mainly by savannah and south carolina. the curvature is going to allow the storm to turn here. the winds that are coming all the way across the water here gaining speed, throwing heavy rain, heavy wind gusts and an extensive storm surge. the eye wall is widening out. that means more of an area is impacted by the storm surge, which could go as high as 9,
10, to 11 feet. that coincides tomorrow morning with savannah river's high tide at the savannah river where there could be a real problem there. the storm surge is going to be the story with it at least into the savannah area. as this system moves forward on shore over the next few hours that storm surge will move in and the high tide will build in and the rain will come down. flooding is almost a certainty for them. along the savannah river right where the hotels are right in town there as this storm moves further north, not so much storm surge, but heavy rain and strong winds with trees donates system hits with more of a perpendicular angle. so the story will continue and the storm doesn't go away tomorrow. it will stick off the central east coast for the next three days. when i come back, i'll talk more about the hurricane and what you can expect this weekend. charities in the bay area and across the country are reaching out to help the hurricane victims in haiti. u.s. marines have arrived to assist survivors of the storm. as many as 60,000 people are
staying in shelters. here in the bay area a san francisco charity called new story is already helping the storm victims to rebuild. >> it only costs $6,000 to fund a home and eight weeks later you actually get the video of the family moving in to a beautiful new home from a tent. >> the devastation in haiti is prompting the government there to postpone the presidential election, which was scheduled for this sunday. well hurricane matthew is also causing problems for travelers. airlines have canceled at least 5,000 flights since wednesday. all flights to and from orlando were canceled today. half of those orlando flights have now been scrapped for tomorrow. the ktvu weather team has continuing coverage. you'll find updates on our smart phone apps and on social media. now to the race for president at another bomb shell. it's an audio recording from 2005 that captures donald trump making some very crowd comments
about groping women. trump was quick to apologize tonight, but hasn't stopped the backlash. >> yes, paul ryan says that trump will not be joining him at a scheduled appearance in wisconsin tomorrow. other republicans are also speaking out. our paul chambers is here now with the story. paul? >> reporter: guys normally a story coming out on a friday could be old news by tomorrow, but not with the presidential debate this sunday. donald trump's offensive language is having people from within his own party speaking out against him. >> i moved on her and i failed. >> whoa. >> i did, she was married. >> reporter: these comments by donald trump are now coming back to haunt him. >> reporter: the recording taken in 2005 was released by the washington post. on the tape, trump who is recently married made crude and vulgar statements to then correspondent billy bush of access hollywood. >> they let you do it, you can
do anything. >> do whatever you want. >> you can do anything. >> trump's statement in 2005 sound exactly like his statements in 2016. that's the reason i don't think people will be terribly surprised by this. >> reporter: ktvu's political analyst joe thuman says that the release of the video is great timing for the clinton campaign, but not for trump going into sunday's presidential debate. trump issued a statement on his website. "this was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. bill clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course, not even close. i apologize if anyone was offended." >> whether it is locker room talk or not these are his words and words matter. >> reporter: democratic presidential nominee says that trump's statements were horrific. her running mate says it is time for those who support trump to take a stand. >> any republican who has said they are for donald trump they need to be asked by the press
and others and my constituents right now. do you still think he is qualified to be president of the united states? >> some have spoken out. no woman should ever be described in these terms. jeb bush says, "as the grandfather of two precious girls, i find that no apology can excuse the way that donald trump's comments degrading women." speaker of the house paul ryan who is the campaign with trump on saturday says that women are to be revered, not object -- objectified. within the last 60 minutes trump has released a recording appearing to be more clear and direct with his apology. he posted the video to his facebook page. >> i have said and done things i regret. the words released
today on this more than a decade old video are one of them. anyone who knows me knows these
words don't reflect who i am. i said it, i was wrong, and i apologize. >> that is two apologies one day by donald trump. the presidential debate is on this sunday. >> thank you so much, paul chambers. as paul mentioned that second debate is being held in st. louis. it's a town hall-style debate with questions from the audience. you can watch it live starting at 6:00 right here on ktvu fox 2. you can also watch it on ktvu.com or on our mobile app. well tonight's game one of the national league division series between the san francisco giants and the chicago cubs. it was a pitcher's dual. the only run scored came in the 8th inning on that home run by the cub's player baez. the cubs walked away with the victory. giants fans though didn't let tonight's outcome quell their optimism. they're still holding out hope
that the team will come out on top. the best of five game series. afterall it is an even year. these fans watched the game just a few blocks from at&t block. they say now is not the time to worry. the giants will get the win in game two tomorrow. >> it's kind of a disappointment, but
you know there's more games to be played. there's still more baseball out there. i'm very excited about that. >> most giant fans would be satisfied with a split in chicago. games three and four are here at home on monday and tuesday. our sports director mark ibanez will have more on the game coming up at 10:45. there are 2,200-mile journeys to raise awareness for the 22 million veterans who commit suicide. high flying stunts above the bay. we will board a jet as the team comes to the bay area for fleet
