his skull. . it appear that the air force, had they followed rules would have entered that information. if it was in there when he went into a local sports store in texas to buy guns he would have been flagged. he wouldn't have been able to do that. many questions for the military this morning. >> what can you tell us about the visit by the vice president? >> reporter: he will be here tomorrow. he will talk to some of the victims. he will talk to the governor. he just wants to get his hands around this and give comfort to these folks. you spoke about the vigils. there is a large one tomorrow night at one of the local high schools. we have seen smaller ones. folks will grab hands. there is a donation. people are praying. the big question is this happened inside a church. would it keep the people of texas away from their churches
and that's not so. they are continuing to pray here. >> and i think that what makes this even -- different and maybe even more heart breaking is we are hearing more about the victims and most of them are from two families and many small children. what are they doing to help the families? >> reporter: terrible. one family alone so 26 families, half of them children, eight of them all from one family. the pastor, the guest pastor was walking up the aisle about to give the sermon. he was shot. his wife was shot in the pews. their pregnant daughter-in-law was shot. three of her children, that same couple's grown son and his 18-month-old child were shot. that 18-month-old was the youngest victim. 72 is the oldest. they are having donations just down the street there is a table where you can bring food, clothing because you have to think about the dead. those 26 people but also 20
people, many of them children were in the hospital. 15 of them still in the hospital. some of them in severe pain, some severe condition. they will need help in these long recovery process. >> caroline, thank you so much for that update. let's get you to where you need to go this morning. steve is right here with our weather. >> cold out there this morning. very cold. >> very cold. >> a lot of 30s in there to the north and some to the santa cruz mountain. 20s up in lake county. lake port. over on the coast there is a easterly breeze and half moon bay sitting in the low 50s. 67, it'll be sunny with higher clouds starting to work into the north later this afternoon. 20s, 30s. lot of 40s. sunnyvale now 39 degrees. it's not just in the north. take a closer look at a few

tow us out and he said it would be another hour and then we waited for an hour and then another hour to get here. we have been on that boat for like four hours and 45 minutes. >> passengers said the delay was not the only problem. they say they couldn't buy food on board and the bathrooms were closed because the toilets were apparently backing up. we contacted the ferry about the problem but haven't had a response. the chp released a new video after a stranded hiker was rescued. look at this video. the man slipped and fell late sunday night. he was at the bottom of a 300- foot cliff. a paramedic was lowered from a helicopter. the hiker was pulled to safety. the man's legs were injured but he is expected to make a full recovery. according to the wall
