6:00 am
>> hello and good morning. i'm stefan chase. >> yes, thanks for being with us. we're going to cbs in new york with the very latest on matthew. >> reporter: -- and powerful waves. there's a picture moment ago from daytona beach shores showing the power of matthew. it is expected to pound the atlantic seabo florida to south carolina. >> now, here's what we have learned. the eye of the deadly storm has stayed off shore and may have spared some areas from the worst damage but this hurricane is still dangerous and potentially life-threatening, now a category 3 with top sustained wind of 120 miles an hour after weakening a little bit overnight. but the storm surge may be the biggest threat. it could be 7 to 11 feet in many areas. mark is in daytona beach,
6:01 am
>> reporter: good morning. these wind and rains are really kicking in since 10:00 a.m. p.m. have gone on all night long and will pretty much have them all day long. as you mentioned, the hurricane is off shore. we're still feeling 60-mile-per- hour wind in parts of volusia county where i'm standing. the good news is this hurricane apparently is not going to have the catastrophic impact initially feared. one side of that, for instance, the power is that maybe by now we wouldn't have power but, of course, obviously we do. there is a curfew in effect by this county that started last -- will go on until saturday morning. 3800 people are in shelters. by and large people did heed the mandatory order to evacuate. i did run into some hold-outs, people that were going to ride out the storm in their homes. they thought they would roll
6:02 am
right now, everything appears pretty good. people have their fingers crossed the storm will stay off shore and spare the east coast of florida, which is what everybody here wants. gayle? >> a little bit of good news. thank you. loni quinn of w cbs is here to show us where it's heading in the next few hours. lonnie, what's the latest? >> let's take a peek of the satellite image because i want to dovetail what mark said, keeping their fingers crossed it stays off shore. that's the big story and is off shore. this is cape canaveral right there. this is a little too close for comfort, okay? you could possibly have a landfall within the next two, maybe three hours or so. it's 40 miles east-southeast of cape canaveral, wind plowing at 120 miles per hour moving north- northwest at 13. so we could have that landfall or could just stay right off
6:03 am
then curving around, maybe transitioning to a cat 2 around georgia, cat 1 south carolina, then loop towards the bahamas. i got to point out this is the consensus cone, not the only possibility. know there are couple of reliable models keeping it pushing north northeast so we have to keep our eye on this and believe it will curve back down. the storm surge will be a big deal and sure enough, 7 to 11- lucie tosa van ghana, georgia, charleston, 4 to 6 feet. you could have could find big rain in georgia, south carolina, maybe north carolina. these are projected numbers, just projected, but 9.3 inches savannah, 15.8 florence, 13.3 fayetteville. as of right now, because of the way the eye is situated, and we're staying off shore, the heaviest, 120-mile-per-hour wind, tiny band around the eye
6:04 am
right now it looks like this becomes a storm, more about the water than the wind. we'll keep a close eye on this. back to you. in thanks, lonnie. we will have full coverage on "cbs this morning" and scott pelley will be with a team of correspondents throughout the south with storm coverage continues right now on our streaming news network, cbsn. this has been a special report. i'm charlie rose with fay let king and norah o'donnell, cbs

6:07 am
daytona beach shores in florida. they, along with south carolina and georgia, are under federal states of emergencies this morning. >> right now we're keeping a close eye on the sunshine state where matthew weakened into a category 3 around 2:00 this morning but still will bring rain and wind our way. >> that's right. let's check in with alyssa corfont, working very hard to keep up with the latest on matthew's projected path. >> good morning, guys. this storm has stayed off off shore. the strongest wind with the storm, just 10 miles away from port canaveral it has already reported this morn a wind gust of 100 help. in the eye wall is where we see the strongest wind of the hurricane and will continue to see those wind gusts continue to spread on shore of florida. whether or not it will be
6:08 am
it is across daytona beach, orlando, jacksonville and spreading across southern portions of the georgia coastline. savannah would be the next to see widespread rain in association with hurricane matthew. now, we're seeing our rain this morning, heavy showers in nash, edgecombe, wilson counties, and wake counties. this is not associated with hurricane matthew but will slow you down as you head for the door this morning. 67 raleigh, 70 goldsboro, 71 clinton, while raeford is at 68 degrees. here's the forecast for the day ahead, a wet morning, 68, 69 at lunchtime, cloudy and cool, showers continue this afternoon with a high of 71. i do think hurricane matthew will spread wind and rain as early as tonight and tomorrow is going to be another wet one for us. more in your complete forecast. well, matthew may not be here in north carolina yet but
6:09 am
effect at rdu and other painters in the state. >> flights are being canceled around the country and here at home. carleigh griffith has the latest from rdu. >> reporter: yesterday about 1500 flights across the nation were canceled. so far, 1700 flyings were canceled and here at rdu, a dozen so far. you can see at the departures flights being canceled are to florida, miami, orlando, fort lauderdale. of course matthew is taking a toll on travel across the country and those able to make flights out of florida are coming to places like raleigh for safety. our crews yesterday spoke with several passengers here as they arrived from different areas impacted by the hurricane. some people cut their trips short and others decided they
6:10 am
they came here to meet friends or family. >> so i was fortunate the other people i work with had to drive to tampa to try to get out and two with of them are sheltering in play. >> reporter: some flights already have been canceled for saturday, over 400. rdu is posting the latest updates on their website and we do have a link to we will keep you updated at >> thanks, carleigh. some of our coastal communities returned a state of emergency. >> many had evacuation orders in place for several days. jonathan rodriguez joins us live from brunswick county, where he cons our coverage.
6:11 am
this area under a state of emergency and all of brunswick county under a state of emergency, the storm plenty of miles from the coast but people want to be prepared because this could see the largest impact. it's been breezy, a slight rain but this morning, we have quite a few storms and lightning up and down the beach. none of this is from matthew yet but points out an interesting problem area. the ground is saturated so if and when it approaches the area, flooding and wind knocking down trees and earlier yesterday we went up and down the coastline to look how people were preparing, board being up windows and doors. they have seen three storm and know what kind of damage it can bring and wanted to make sure they stay prepared for that kind of thing.
6:12 am
everybody playing everything by ear. there's a mandatory evacuation for visitors on the island and voluntary one for people. people will try to ride this thing out. for the most part, it's a clear beach. the pier may close to be safe because there could be surf and storm surge 3 to 6 feet. back to you. >> let's check traffic now with ali. >> good morning. it's 6:12. you can see the rain on our traffic cameras, a wet ride in on this friday morning and the map shows you where it's falling. portions of 540 through raleigh will have your wipers on. we have a crash garner at branch street, closer to the downtown raleigh area so a heads up if you're traveling
6:13 am
so 95, give yourself extra time and take it slow on 64. wake forest, if you're traveling on wake falls road, mountain high road, rolling rocks road, the commute will be tricky so leave early. durham, 85 getting most of the rain but no crashes to report th to rtp, 23 minutes on 40 from garner to rtp, about 25. give yourself more time because of the rain almost it will slow things down. outside the clayton bypass, it's busy, wipers on this friday morning. >> yeah, you can say that again. thanks a lot. 6:13 is the time. the southeast isn't the only region dealing with severe weather this morning. >> it got pretty rough around here. >> oh, man.

6:17 am
the national weather service said winds of 110 miles per hour are affected and nearly 300,000 people have evacuated but governor haley said 500,000 more need to get out. >> this is really a serious storm. we have, in every way, tried to prepare as much as possible to keep you safe as possible but we can't take you by the hand and bring you to the upstate. we can't say, "we need to get you out of there." >> president whatever federal help the state needs. governor haley said that includes generator, food, cots, and shelter. officials at the air force base are moving their aircraft to louisiana. the base which is located in wayne county is transporting 48 fighter jets and fueling planes and will move personnel stationed on the coast.

6:19 am
that is how it impact us the most. let's talk about that. a flash flood watch will go into effect today through sunday afternoon and really taking into consideration the amount of water that we received across portions of cumberland, harnett, hoke counties. some areas received over 10 inches of rain. also the areas we expect to get rain with and we're starting off quite soggy for some of you, rain showers through the coast so here's a live picture of our radar. rain showers really just streaming from the southeast, moving west so an opposite pattern than what we typically see, the heaviest rain this morning -- i'll have to stop this and bring a closer look, extreme franklin and wayne county, nash, wilson, edgecombe counties, water likely starting
6:20 am
those directions. ali will have a check on traffic in a minute but let's talk about how long rain will impact you today, on and off again throughout the day so a wet morning, 68 at 8:00 p.m. at noon, 59, still cloudy and cool, showers towards the afternoon high, 71. it will be breezy today but matthew just on the doorstep of florida this morning, port this is a dangerous storm as is very close by the eye wall, 10 miles away from port canaveral this morning moving at wind off shore. saturday afternoon, it's off the coast of charleston, south carolina, then a southeasterly turn we like to see in north
6:21 am
around as a tropical storm as it could approach the back ham mass towards the middle of next week. let's talk about our area, scattered showers this morning through lunch and into that evening drive home and this is not associated with matthew. matthew comes into the picture tonight into tomorrow, moving across columbia, south carolina, charleston, south carolina. first thing tomorrow morning it's spreading into our area and will coin the area, very heavy at times, strong wind gusts associated with this. you can see that yellow cone starts to move across hoke, cumberland, sampson county, wind 39 miles per hour or stronger saturday afternoon and gets the boot out of here sunday so summing this up for you, triangle, 2 to 4 inches of rain with matthew into our day
6:22 am

6:23 am

6:37 am
closing down bridges later this morning, 40-mile-per-hour sustained wind is the threshold for that and spent the entire day and for the most part, they did, but with powerful storms, there are few hangers-on and officials in florida and georgia say stay inside because if you have not left yet, this is where ou storm. everything from west to interstate 95 is closed right now with one business open, the hotel we're staying in, they're telling everybody to get out and expect it worse than this. we have rain and wind. you said it. we have been upgraded from damp and soaked while matthew has been downgraded to a category 3 storm it doesn't matter how strong the storm is. it's hugging the east coast of

6:42 am
surprised here. the hurricane warning continues for the coast of florida, georgia, south carolina, as well. we have tropical storm warning in effect for areas of south carolina including myrtle beach, also a few counties in north carolina that includes wilmington and where we have our crews stationed this morning near oak island. let's go ahead and talk about the rain and what is affect of it. a flash flood watch will go into effect today through soaked areas of harnett and cumberland counties, hoke county. some of those air areas received over 10 inches of rain last week and the 95 corridor could receive several inch of rain as we track matthew. it turned away before it hits us but enough rain will make an impact. the rain we're feeling this morning is not associated with matthew. we are seeing pocketing of
6:43 am
few isolated showers lee and moore counties but look at this across portions of nash, edgecombe, wilson counties, spreading through warren and vance counties. we have heavy rain towards henderson. take your type with water collecting on the roadways. it could be dangerous for the morning commute. it could be wet with upper 60s. we're in the upper 60s through noon, cool this time of year, 71 our afternoon high and will be breezy as we t we'll have more on your forecast and when hurricane matthew's strongest wind gusts will arrive in a bit. >> 6:43 in the morning. up next, a look at damage left behind by hurricane matthew. this in the caribbean you see and an update on the death

6:46 am
in the caribbean are in recovery mode. take a look at new pictures we're just getting in from haiti. at last check, the number is 283. that's how many people have died there when that storm rolled through the region earlier this week. a united nations official said hurricane matthew is the country's worst humanitarian disaster since the earthquake in 2010. matthew's impact isn't expected to be anywhere near that destructive, but the storm will bring heavy rain and high winds our way. >> in fact, on the coast, man tropical storm warning. the evacuations have been happening for several days. cbs north carolina's jonathan rodriguez joins from brunswick county with how people are getting ready. is it still pretty calm out there jonathan? >> reporter: yeah, not too bad right now. we see image from florida from the caribbean, haiti and thankfully we won't see that on the coast but people are preparing and southeastern
6:47 am
several inching of rain to an area that's seen a lot of rain so flooding can be a big impact. for the most part, clear throughout this morning. earlier when we got out at 2:40 this morning, lightning up and down the beach. that cleared out but as alyssa has been saying, none of that is from matthew yet, just adding more rain and the potential for more flooding in this area. they're take it very seriously. oak island under a state evacuates. they have closed schools today and will open some for shelters. shelters will open up in about a little over an hour, about 8:00, they're expecting those things to open up, just to be prepared, they had a mandatory evacuation for all visitors. we know that threw a wrench into some weddings that were supposed to be today and tomorrow. those have been canceled on the beach with a voluntary evacuation for people who live out here. a lot of people say they're
6:48 am
are taking precautionses with storms. we saw them boarding up windows and doors. we talked to eos, emergency operation center. they're ready to go to fire, police police officers, everyone on standby, watching how closely it will move to the area. the biggest potential threat is wind knocking over pou line and trees and we will keep an eye on things an >> communities are taking precautionses. harnett and cumberland county schools are operating on closing two hours early. >> and we're watching the flooding possibility. >> we have a flash flood watch that will go into effect through the afternoon. the heaviest rain is expected saturday with hurricane matthew moving up the east coast, not
6:49 am
and the heaviest storm 200 miles away. we are expecting several inches of rainfall in central north carolina so so let's get to where the rain is falling and showers are from the coast with the heaviest rain in nash and franklin counties and vance towards henderson, warren county. even northern portions of wake county towards wake forest, receiving g towards rocky mount, wilson -- again, this could add insult to injury as we are expecting several inches of rain to come through the area with hurricane matthew. let's get to the hour by hour forecast, upper 60s through 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. this morning, good chance for rain. 69 at noon, make it to 70, barely, by 2:00, 71 our high, breezy today. again, these are just showers moving in from the ocean. what matthew will bring is
6:50 am
early as tonight, more than likely not reaching until tomorrow morning. here's the forecast and the forecast track, wind at 120 miles per hour with matthew, located 25 miles east of cape canaveral, the eye wall very close to port canaveral, 102- mile-per-hour wind. it's off the coast of georgia saturday and off the coast, rather, of charleston, south first thing sunday morning so the closest to north carolina it comes, weakens into a tropical storm as it heads southward into the middle of next week. let's talk about the wind forecast. watch this area of yellow including hoke, cumberland, sampson, and wayne counties towards 4:00 saturday afternoon. that's the potential to have wind gusts over 39 miles per hour so that is tropical storm
6:51 am
towards sunday. as far as the rain is concerned, scattered showers in your forecast today from start to begin in. it won't be a washout but the chance of rain will be there and here come outer band of matthew for first thing saturday morning, heading through lunchtime and the afternoon. 2 to 4 inches in the triangle tree and power lines. 4 to 6 inches, wouldn't be surprised to see higher than that in sampson and cumberland county, wind gusts closer to 40 miles per hour as well. low 70s for highs in raleigh and durham, 75 fayetteville. tonight, near 67, still going to be mild and breezy as showers stick around. the brunt of matthew's impacts are saturday and out of here first thing sunday and then
6:52 am
68, 70s in the forecast by tuesday. that's your latest forecast. let's check the roads. what's the latest, ali? good morning, a busy morning out there, 85 and u.s. 70, crash cleared from this area but the rain continues to fall, making it a slick commute through durham. we have report of an overturned car and will take it to you roxboro street at shady creek drive, heads up. you can see 751 seems to slow down and if we take you on over to wilson and where we see ponding on the roadways like alyssa mentioned and the rain still falling so on 95, you're going to need your wipers through the wilson and closer, some roads that we are seeing, london church, cranberry ridge road, extra time needed on this friday morning, 540 to glenwood, 16
6:53 am
from newborn to wade avenue about 9:00. >> we'll be back with more news that you need to know before you leave. but first, a preview of what the team is working for. millions prepare for the catastrophic and deadly effects of matthew. we'll scott. plus teams on the coast of georgia and south carolina brace for massive flooding and storm surges. and which candidate is best positioned for the second presidential debate? bob here is will have analysis.
6:54 am
6:55 am
the biggest story of the day is the news that for the
