8:05 am
if you're inland, and asking, is this like sandy? the answer is no, it is not. this thing is staying out in the ocean. but the bands of wind will pile up water. the high winds. you can see the gusts through sunday night. 20 up to 40 and look at that. close to 50-mile-per-hour winds. that will make the waves and a storm surge a real possibility anywhere near the coast. you see 55 atlantic city, that's monday at 10:00 p.m. the timing is so important. what will happen is tonight, it will start turning back to the north and west. and event eventually, by thursday, it will start to get out of our hair. some places in here down through new jersey that will be impacted sooner than later. that includes longport, new jersey, where eva pilgrim is this morning. >> reporter: good morning, ginger. we're seeing wind and significantly cooler than is normal for this time of year. you can see the waves angrily crashing on to the shore.
8:06 am
and this is what we're most concerned about with hermine. this storm surge. as hermine sits off the coast and pushes the water in. it keeps the back bays unable to fully empty out. it pushes the water higher and higher with each high tide. the high tide starting to spill on to the streets overnight. several coastal counties under a state of emergency. local officials asking people to voluntarily evacuate some shore points. urging residents and tourists to head inland. it's not been beach weather. not comfortable to sit out near the sand. businesses here taking a big hit. slow on a weekend when they usually are slammed. and if conditions change today, officials really encouraging people to take this weather seriously, ginger. >> that's right, eva. even though it looks that way,
8:07 am
it will go from uncomfortable to downright dangerous for some. we want everybody to focus in on the storm and the timing. things deteriorate later tonight and through tomorrow. stick around for parts of new england through wednesday. this is a storm we'll be dealing with for a very long time. it's been two weeks we have been following this thing already. i'll have a lot more coming up in weather, as far as how big waves get. a lot of people looking at that. and what we can look for in the way of rainfall. i'll give you a little tease. it's not as much as you might think. >> thank you, ginger. great to have you with us on the weekends, yet again. we'll have more later in the show. we move to the image from the campaign trail. donald trump swaying in the pews at an african-american church in detroit. this in his latest attempt to appeal to black voters. mary bruce is on the story this morning. >> reporter: good morning. dan, for weeks, donald trump has been slammed for trying to reach out to african-american voters without reaching out to african-americans.

[ crowd chanting ] >> all: no trump, no trump, no trump. >> reporter: the question now is can any of this outreach change opinions? >> thank you, mary. for more, let's get to abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz. she's in washington. she's hosting "this week" later this morning. given how deeply unpopular trump is with black voters is this kind of outreach that we saw in detroit likely to work? or is it, as many have argued,
8:10 am
te zined to reassure suburban white voters because it shows he's not a racist? >> trump's polling at 1% of african-americans. members of the congregation he met yesterday, as you saw, did not seem swayed. then again, no republican candidate has broken past 15% of the black vote in 50 years since democratic president lyndon johnson signed the civil rights act and republican nominee barry goldwater opposed it. the zimps that -- difference is that trump is losing black voters and white college-educated voters. he needs to do better with them. a key constituency. and as you say, many have been turned off by his harsh rhetoric, dan and paula. >> trump is at rallies. at that church. meantime, hillary's been surrounding herself with rich and powerful donors. "the new york times" front cover said, where has hillary clinton been? ask the ultra rich. not to mention, martha, she
