7:02 am
good morning, everybody, welcome to "today." it is a thursday morning. we've been watching matthew for days and now it seems the very path we feared it would be on is the path it is taking. >> the breaking news on matthew is not good news because the storm is now intensifying this morning as it inches towards the united states. >> now, millions in florida and georgia and south carolina have been told to evacuate and thest could spell double trouble for the region. we have all of this covered but let's start with al in i know the forecasts are coming fast and furious now. >> they really are now and this could be the worst case scenario. you can see matthew is a category 3 but we expect it to start to intensify as the forward motion begins. here is what we're looking for. it is a close call. the snow storm center by late tonight, early tomorrow morning will be 15 miles off shore. if that shifts a little bit to the west, those 140 miles an
7:03 am
coastline for hours. it will continue through saturday morning up to jacksonville as a category 2 storm, again, 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 throughout that could keep this close to shore. so, this is just about as bad a scenario as you can see. we have hurricane warnings from the ha . . georgia. 11 million people under hurricane warning. 2 million under hurricane watches the impact aerkz the bahamas this morning, 10 to 18 foot storm surges. southern florida starting late tonight, wind gusts, 60 to 95 miles an hour. rain fall, three to seven, with storm surges. a 6 to 9 foot storm surge as you get into northern florida. wind gusts of 100 miles an hour. we move into friday evening.
7:04 am
carolinas down to georgia. wind gusts of 80 miles per hour. 15 inches of rain. the storm surge is another big problem we have to worry about. ahead of high tide, one to three feet. from miami to ft. lauderdale. three to five feet west palm beach to ft. pierce. we move up the coast to melbourne to savannah, georgia. six to nine feet. then you look at the carolina coast, three to five feet. and the rainfall amounts we're talking anywhere from five to seven inches. but between savannah and ten inches or more. and the problem is there's going to be just catastrophic possibilities of power outages, of storm surge, of flooding. and it's going to be going on the this thing does get caught up too a loop we will be talking about this into next week. >> the worst case scenario at the moment now. thanks very much. matthew is hammering the
7:05 am
you know, the northern edge of this hurricane is just pounding the island. the wind and the rain is incredible. we're protected up here but let me give you a look at what's going on down there. the wind and rain is so strong it is blowing sideways. the trees are bent. another concern out here is this storm surge as al mentioned. we could get swells up to 15 feet. that could wipe out most of the homes on this island. residents have boarded up the homes. many have evacuated. there are still about 3,000 the airport is closed so everybody who is here now, they are stuck. and they have to wait out this storm. some tourists from a nearby hotel very evacuated from their rooms. they had to sleep on the floor in the ballroom. now, we were out there just a short while ago looking around and there's already a lot of damage. trees have been ripped from the ground. roads are flooded. and i'm assume that the worst is still to come because the hurricane is not quite over us. matt and savannah.

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. i bie 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. >> brett adair, stay safe. thank you very much.
7:33 am
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 hurricane-fords 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 charleston, all the way up into

ing performance means. and this is where it lives. the 503-horsepower mercedes-amg c63 s coupe. we're back now at 7:42. we've got donald trump's running mate, indiana governor mike pence. morning in gettysburg, pennsylvania on the wake of this week's vice presidential's debate. so the pundits have had a couple of days now, or 36 hours, who digest your performance in the vice presidential debate. so has your running mate, donald trump, who seems to be saying, you did a great job, and he wants to take some of the credit for that because it shows he had great judgment in selecting you. isn't that a little bit like
7:43 am
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 that table share that vision
7:44 am
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. and donald trump has -- >> 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 owe-- tim kaine said thi had said that vladimir putin was a better lead >> 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 strength on the world stage
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 you a 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? >> well, it's the greatest honor
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 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 cred it in that debate. you all have a tough job out there and you all do it well. i thought elaine did a good job keeping the debate focused on
7:48 am
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. >> i thought it was a 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 ago went through a very

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, unfortunately. governor pence, thankor 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 [vacuum sound]

we are looking at west palm beach up to melbourne to see the significant effects from this storm with winds tomorrow morning perhaps up near 145 miles per hour. keep in mind, hurricane-force winds only extend about 25 to 40 miles outside of the center of this storm, so if this storm is only 15 miles offshore, we could see the entire east central coast of florida be raked with hurricane-force winds causing damage, causing coastal flooding. that storm surge, and also significant rainfall, too. it should weaken to a category 2 storm as it is just off the coast of georgia, and then it takes this weird loop all the way wrapping back around which we'll see what happens at that point. but we are looking again for as much as up to 12 to 15 inches of rain in florida and three to six-foot storm surge along with winds up near possibly 145 miles per hour. that's a look at the weather
