8:00 am
good morning, america. this morning, nate comes ashore. making landfall first in louisiana, hours later a second time in mississippi flooding parts of biloxi, cars underwater. roads and streets impassable. >> this is by far the strongest winds we've seen all night. >> this stranded family rescued from the rising water, and nate now heading north with threats of tornadoes and flash flooding. who is in the danger zone this morning? tough tweets. president trump is taking aim at north korea saying that diplomatic efforts by previous presidents went nowhere, and now
8:01 am
only one thing will work as the president impressed on his calm before the storm comments. >> nothing, nothing to clarify. >> he's now acknowledging he's had disagreements with his own secretary of state. and mind of a mass murderer. what investigators are now saying about las vegas gunman stephen paddock's mental state as we hear from a man who came face-to-face with him. >> he said he was terribly depressed and that his life was miserable. >> plus, the chilling note found in his hotel room, what it reveals. and the pregnant woman at the concert shielded from bullets by her brother celebrating a new life this morning. and good sunday morning. dan is on assignment once again and as promised, jon karl our chief white house correspondent, is back. tony reali is back. ron didn't go anywhere, neither did rob. we'll get to him in a second and we

hurricane nate making not one but two landfalls along the gulf coast overnight. >> here's a look at what it looked like when nate came ashore near biloxi with maximum winds of 85 miles an hour. this area inundated by the storm surge, the water continuing to flood nearby casinos and their parking garages. >> and here's the scene in downtown mobile. this part of the city underwater. over 100,000 people are reported to be without power this morning. nate now lashing everything in its path with powerful winds, heavy rain and there are concerns about possible tornadoes now as it marches north. we have team coverage beginning right near in the studio with our chief meteorologist rob marciano who is tracking the storm. good morning, rob. >> good morning, paula. you saw that storm surge, four to six feet coming over highway 90 over biloxi, the fourth, if you count maria, the fourth in the last 45 days, actually the eye coming right over keesler air force base where ironically that is where the hurricane air force and squadron are based so they didn h
8:03 am
right now it's about 100 miles south-southwest of montgomery, alabama, and the pass across the dixie valley, the tennessee valley and ohio valley and what's left of it gets up into the northeast by late tomorrow into tuesday. with it comes some wind. this is a lopsided storm. there are tropical storm force winds that extend about 100 miles east of it. nothing to the west of it. so atlanta later on today could see 40-mile-an-hour wind gusts. so more power outages and potentially some heavy rain along its path. speaking of its path, we have tropical storm warnings posted through much of alabama and outside montgomery as victor oquendo is there. give us a sense of what's happening where you are. >> reporter: good morning, rob. we are the middle of it now. the strongest rain and winds we felt so far this morning north of montgomery off 65. you can see the rain coming down and water just rushing down the hill behind me. central alabama just getting pounded by nate's rains and winds this morning. rainfall rate, we have about two
8:04 am
expected leading to dangerous conditions. you got a flash flood watch throughout most of the area through sunday and another major concern, of course, with this part of the storm, tornadoes. so much of alabama, especially the central and southern part under a tornado watch throughout the rest of the morning. some 59,000 customers right now without power. the bulk of them according to alabama power in the mobile area. 56,000 of those customers coming from mobile to right now with conditions like this, people are being told to stay inside, shelter in place, stay safe. although nate has weakened, it is still packing quite a punch. jon, paula. >> it certainly is. victor, thanks for your reporting this morning. the city of biloxi, mississippi, was pounded by wind and heavy rain when nate made its second landfall on the gulf coast, and now it is dealing with storm surge. >> this is the first hurricane to make landfall in mississippi since hurricane katrina in 2005. abc's steve osunsami is there with more. >> reporter: good morning to you both. we are right now on the beach,
8:05 am
there. behind me are the casinos that were flooded in the background but take a look. there's someone out there who is missing something. the winds were strong enough to blow this large sailboat onto the beach. the cleanup here officially begins today. early this morning hurricane nate rushed ashore near biloxi, mississippi. the storm came with near 85-mile-an-hour winds and crashing waves. u.s. 90, the highway on the beach in the way of storm was no match and in places was under several feet of water. with many visiting like ourself, it was the only road in or out. the storm surge came in late and fast. and it's a good thing the bottom of the casinos here are parking garages because they were flooded. the few cars that weren't moved in time were floating in the waves. some of the casino hotels still had guests trapped inside. this is by far the strongest winds we've seen all night.
8:06 am
the eye wall is right here. we're about to enter the center of this storm, the center of this eye wall. it's about to cross just in the next few moments. the rain came fast. this stranded family had to be rescued after getting stuck in the storm, and this tree brought down by strong winds knocked down power lines. thousands here are in the dark this morning. the president has signed this emergency declaration, already ordering federal aid. city officials this morning say they are thankful no one hurt that they know of, no homes even destroyed that they know of. right now they're going to have to deal with the water that they're cleaning out of the casinos but those hotels should be opening within the next day or two. you know, it's not quite what officials here had feared just a day ago. paula. >> they're breathing a sigh of relief. steve, thank you so much for your reporting from mississippi and just moments ago we spoke with biloxi
8:07 am
>> we understand you took the brunt of nate's wrath right there in the gulf coast. can you describe what the storm felt like as it was passing through? >> it was not continually battering those -- the wind and the rain, but it was intense there and, again, i think the disorganization and the speed of this storm helped us, you know, in our outcome. i think we were very fortunate. it moved through very fast. it was not like katrina that seemed to linger or some of the other storms this year, especially harvey. >> so this morning you're waking up. the sun is coming out. crews are assessing the damage. you guys are dealing with the aftermath. what are you expecting to see? >> just the normal debris situation is what we're going to -- you know, kind of line up all our recovery and debris removal contractors to get things psa
8:08 am
this one. >> yeah, mayor, sounds like you're breathing a sigh of relief this morning. >> i am. i surely am. so we're thankful for everybody's prayers who were thinking of us in the middle of it. you know, as you go through these storms, you just never know, so we prepared for the worst and we came out all right. >> sounds good. mayor, our thoughts are with you as the recovery process begins and thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. y'all have a good morning. >> you too. and now to new orleans because they may have dodged a bullet in all of this, as well. >> the big easy is getting off easy. the city spared nate's most ferocious winds. abc's gio benitez is there. gio, good morning. >> reporter: hey, jon and paula, good morning to you. listening, everyone here talks about those water pumps to get water out during a rainstorm because just a few months ago during a regular rainstorm, a lot of new orleans was just flooded because many of those
8:09 am
pumps weren't working, so with that in mind you saw people just leaving town here. you saw streets that were completely empty. i mean, imagine saturday night the french quarter in new orleans usually bustling with cars and people. it was just totally empty. it looked more like a ghost town and that's because officials weren't taking any chances and put a short curfew in place to make sure people were inside, indoors and safe and away from any potential flooding, so thankfully we did not see any flooding here. but it's incredible to see how this threat of flooding actually shut down this city. in fact, the only police cars -- the only cars we saw were actually police cars. jon and paula, back to you. >> a good sight to see from new orleans. thanks for your reporting, gio. the mayor of san juan is keeping the dire situation in puerto rico from hurricane maria right in the spotlight through a series of tweets. overnight the mayor writing, power collapses in san juan hospital with two patients being transferred out. have requested support from fema, brock, nothing. then this. increasingly painful to understand the american people want to he u
8:10 am
help. we need water. and finally this tweet, the hospital had requested support from fema and no response. oh, sorry, they are collecting data, and, of course, the criticism of her is she has time to tweet and make t-shirts. >> she might calling the fema director. >> as of last week she had not even met with the director. we want to move on. the mayor sparred with president trump in the past. this is president trump's fourth test from mother nature in two months. >> but it is north korea that has been on the president's mind this weekend with more ominous words directed at kim jong-un. north korea releasing pictures of their leader overnight. abc's cecilia vega is at the white house. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning to you, my friend. good to see you there in new york. ominous words, as you say, yet again, and despite all of these attempts to get the president to clarify exactly what he means, it seems president trump wants to keep the world in suspense. another day, another vague threat against north korea from president trump. this one as he was leaving the white house headed for an
8:11 am
overnight fund-raiser in north carolina. asked what the one thing is that will work with pyongyang -- >> well, you'll figure that out pretty soon. >> reporter: a tweet earlier in the day not offering much clarification. the president writing, presidents and their administrations have been talking to north korea for 25 years. agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked. agreements violated before the ink was dry making fools of u.s. negotiators. sorry, but only one thing will work. it follows last week's ominous message delivered while surrounded by his top military leaders. >> maybe it's the calm before the storm. >> what storm, mr. president? >> you'll find out. >> reporter: and since then he's refused to explain. we pushed. mr. president, what did you mean by calm before the storm yesterday? what did you mean by that? >> thank you very much. >> reporter: only to be met with a wink. >> you'll find out. >> reporter: and reporters tried again. >> clarify your calm before the storm comment. >> nothing, nothing to clarify. >> reporter: but the president
8:12 am
secretary of state, despite a report that rex tillerson called his boss a moron and threatened to resign. >> very good relationship. i have a very good -- that was fake news. >> reporter: but that's not all. after the president blasted tillerson saying he was wasting his time trying to negotiate with kim jong-un, now this. >> we disagree on a couple of things. sometimes i'd like him to be a little bit tougher, but other than that, we have a very good relationship. >> reporter: so some tough words there but as for his chief of staff president trump says has nothing but praise for general john kelly despite these reports that are out there that kelly has grown frustrated with his job at the white house. the president says he's doing an incredible job and says he expects him to be in this position for the remainder of his, he says, seven years in the white house. jon, he calls him one of the best people he's ever worked with. >> seven year, huh? cecilia, i've got to ask you, more tweets, a lot of tweets this weekend. this one caught my eye about
8:13 am
chuck schumer. he said, i called chuck schumer yesterday to see if the dems want to get a great health care bill. obamacare is badly broken. big premiums. who knows. so, who knows. he called chuck schumer and he admitted that he placed the call. what's going on? >> reporter: yeah, so he called him on friday. again he likes to call them chuck and nancy. remember that when both the democratic leaders were at the white house not too long ago. the president wants to cut a temporary deal, a one or two-year deal on health care basically schumer said no dice. the president wants repeal and replace. he can't get that in his own party and, jon, as you know, democrats say that is a nonstarter for them too but, jon, i got to take one issue with you there in new york, i'm loving this, but i thought that we agreed you were going to come to me and call me like living legend, kind of beef up the team. >> award winning, award winning senior white house correspondent. >> yeah. >> the one and only. >> tremendous. >> paula, you let me know if you need any -- >> i'm going to say, i don't know what we owe this pleasure
8:14 am
of having you join us on the weekend, but we are eternally grateful and will be forever indebted to your services. thank you. thank you, your highness. >> the honorable cecilia vega. >> honestly love having cecilia here on the weekends. >> we do. >> and we want to move on. >> we should do more of it. >> another leading lady that we have here at abc, martha raddatz, our chief global affairs gearing up to host "this week" later on this morning. martha, love to have you on the show. glad you're hosting this weekend. >> following a living legend. >> how do you follow that? so, let's begin with -- >> yeah, it's tough. >> speaking of, let's talk about north korea. let's try to transition. you know, the president saying only one thing will work and when pressed about it says you're going to figure it out pretty soon. how are we supposed to interpret this? are we going to war? >> well, i think what you saw the other day in that photograph and him talking and talking the talk was very much off the cuff. i think there is nothing imminent planned, of course,
8:15 am
unless north korea does something extremely stupid. but it is that coercive diplomacy, that's the way it's been described to me, they are still trying to stay on a diplomatic track. the sanctions they hope work. but donald trump is going to keep up that chorus of, hey, if you don't do that, there could be military force. that is very donald trump. what you saw there in that photograph surrounded by the military, and i think it was just off the cuff saying what -- the kinds of things he usually says with a wink added in to cecilia. >> and i'll tell you, none of his senior advisers had any idea he was going to say that. that surprised them as much as it surprised all of us but what about john kelly? there's been rampant speculation about his chief of staff. how long will he stay? we heard him say he'll be there for seven years. what are you hearing? >> well, i don't know about
8:16 am
seven years there, jon and paula, but i think this is an extremely challenging job for john kelly, and he has had some very challenging jobs. this is a person who is disciplined, this is a person who is used to discipline. this is a person who is used to giving orders and having those orders followed. but i think john kelly is there to stay as long as he feels he is serving the nation, because his background is a military officer, as a senior officer he does not throw in the towel. despite frustrations, despite all of that and the same with general mattis, secretary mattis now, you have this background of serving the nation. i think both of them feel they will continue to do that as long as they feel they are helping the nation. >> it's that overwhelming sense of duty that usurps everything else. martha, have a great show. we're going to let you go because we know you are preparing for that big show this morning. she has two congre
8:17 am
views on gun control with a rare conversation on how congress should respond to the las vegas shooting. plus the latest details on nate with the director of fema. what he says about what's going on in puerto rico. that's coming up on "this week." time now for weather. let's go back to rob marciano. >> hi, jon. hi, paula again. the threat for tornadoes exists today and have this watch out for the east side of it until 11:00 eastern time and these two waterspouts, i should say, which touched onto gulf shores and orange beach late yesterday afternoon, so proof in the pudding there, and we have to be careful of these spinning up throughout the morning today. also, rain, that's going to be an issue. some moisture getting streamed up into a frontal boundary that's pushing across the northeast. so some tropical rains already well ahead of the center of nate which is going to spin through alabama, georgia and tennessee later on today. we've got flood watches out for birmingham. just north of atlanta. in through asheville. some of these areas need rain, but with all tropical systems, a lot can come too fa
8:18 am
by the way, nate almost got to category 2 status making landfall as a cat 1. the ninth consecutive storm to reach hurricane status. unbelievable how busy it's been. >> i know you're busy in the news department. what's going on? >> well, good morning to all of you. good morning, everyone. we're going to begin in charlottesville, virginia, where a group of white nationalists held a rally around a statue of
