6:32 pm
storm east. flying at 21 miles per hour. hurricane warning in place for new orleans, gulf port, biloxi extending to inland there. the brunt will be felt saturday night through sunday morning. that's when it is going to make landfall and speeds up through the ohio valley into the northeast and out by tuesday. but before that, the impact storm surge, four to six feet. the bay, gulf shores up to eight feet and ten inches of rain. >> tracking it into the weekend. thank you. in the crosshairs of this storm new orleans and the low lying cities along the gulf dangerous flooding and storm surge is likely and this question tonight. are the pumps ready in new orleans? abc's steve osunsami is there. >> reporter: across the gulf tonight, this is the state of emergency and they're racing to get ready for this storm. >> we're going to flood.
6:33 pm
>> in new orleans a dozen of the city's drainage purpomps aren't working. teams are clearing drains and parts of jefferson parishes, more than 1,000 families forced to live their homes. >> one of the greatest threats to this storm is not necessarily interior rain, but storm surge. >> reporter: billy rost is leaving tonight. he's moved everything of the ground. >> you don't know what the surge is going to do. if you don't pick it up you lose it. this is like a gamble. >> reporter: three feet of storm surge and he's fine. six feet, he loses everything. he's expecting five. >> you can only do so much. you can't run from water, baby. >> reporter: the storm has already killed. at least 11 dead in nicaragua, and eight in costa rica. dozens more missing after mudslides washed away homes, and steve joins us live tonight. steve, you were telling us those pumps can pull out an inch of rain in an hour?
6:34 pm
>> reporter: yes. but that's just during the first hour. after the ability of a pumping station drops to about half an inch an hour assuming all the pumps are working which would surprise just about everyone in the city. what that means is that if several inches of rain fall over new orleans all at once, this city will still flood even with all of the pumps working properly. >> we are thinking about that city and every city along the gulf. thank you. we move on to other headlines at this hour and from las vegas new developments. what drew that hotel security guard to the hotel room in the first place and even though he was shot through the door was he the one who stopped more bloodshed. matt gutman from las vegas tonight. >> reporter: five days after the worst mass shooting in american history, las vegas police acknowledging they still don't know what drove stephen paddock to open fire on that helpless crowd. >> i get it. we all want answers.
6:35 pm
we have looked at everything. >> reporter: but tonight we are learning that hero security guard jesus campos may have prevented further bloodshed. police say paddock had been shooting when campos arrived responding to a door alarm. >> we believe he was shooting into the crowd, and then the security guard was shot during that event. >> reporter: 48-year-old doug carter was attending the concert with his wife and son. but they became separated in the chaos. you see them here dazed and staggering, a bullet in his arm. the man taking this video ray page takes him to a make-shift triage center. >> stand right here. he's in shock. >> reporter: in the dark you hear him mumble about his gun. >> i got my -- >> reporter: when the people helping him pull up his shirt that light eliminates another bullet hole in his chest. >> i do got one? >> yeah.
6:36 pm
>> reporter: police officers keeping him calm. ray page then goes to get his truck. >> i'm going to try to find a medic. >> reporter: when he returns victims piling into his pickup. ray page delivering doug and the others to safety. and it would be 14 agonizing hours until doug was reunited with his family. did you know he was hit? >> i had no idea until 12:00 the next day when we found him in the hospital. >> reporter: tonight his son is thankful to the heroes who saved his dad. >> just amazing there was somebody there to help my dad and he was -- i thought he was on the street somewhere. >> matt police are calling that security guard a true hero. >> reporter: that's right. police are saying as that guard neared the door it diverted his attention from the crowd to the hallway. he began firing wildly into it injuring that security guard. somehow that guard managed to
6:37 pm
alert authorities. he's being hailed as a hero as the city continues to mourn. there have been thousands of people here at this memorial site all day david. >> also tonight, what was written on a note found in the gunman's hotel room as we learned how much the gunman made in the days before the attack and the millions he made in just one year. here's brian ross. >> reporter: she just returned to the us from the philippines two days ago, but tonight federal authorities have put a close watch on marilou danley to make sure she doesn't try to leave the country as they struggle to find the motive behind her boyfriend's crime. >> we have no credible information to report to you as to motivation. >> reporter: fbi agents and police say they are skeptical of danley's claims that she knew nothing about the plans of her longtime boyfriend stephen paddock. but a family friend who visited them in nevada say that could well be true, that she was subservient to him. >> it's not what i saw as a
6:38 pm
loving, caring relationship. >> reporter: adam lefevre told an australian tv station he spent a week with the couple in nevada in 2015, staying with them in a luxury casino suite, and later at his home, where paddock showed off what he called his gun room. >> he was very strict and very firm on the fact that it is a right, it is a capacity, and it is the freedom of every american resident and person to participate, to own a gun and use it as seen fit when need be. and that law should never be changed. >> reporter: late today authorities confirmed reports the shooter left behind some kind of a note, which authorities say contained a series of cryptic numbers, but was not a suicide note. officials are tracking every aspect of his life, back to high school in los angeles and earlier, and his recent prescriptions for valium. >> we are looking at every aspect from birth to death of this suspect in this case. >> reporter: in the final days before the shooting, officials tell abc news he was in the
6:39 pm
company of a prostitute, and went gambling in the mandalay bay casino, winning big jackpots on both friday and saturday nights. brian you were saying stephen paddock called himself a professional gambler. >> in the year 2015 he reported income of $5 million. >> and no motive? >> that's right. >> brian, thanks. i hope everyone will join us for an abc news 2020 documentary presentation on the las vegas massacre, heart break and heroes. we have new reporting tonight at 10:00 eastern/9:00 central. next to the white house tonight president trump raising new questions after what he said during a photo on summoning reporters telling them this was the calm before the storm. cecelia vega asking the white house what did he mean. >> reporter: in the state dining
6:40 pm
room, this is the image president trump summoned reporters to see -- the president smiling, surrounded by his top military leaders and their spouses. then came the unsolicited, cryptic comment. >> do you guys know what this represents? >> tell us, sir. >> maybe it's the calm before the storm. >> what's the storm? >> could be the calm -- the calm before the storm. >> what storm, mr. president? >> you'll find out. >> we have the world's great military people. i will tell you that. thank you all for coming. thank you. >> what storm mr. president? >> you'll find out. >> reporter: and today in the oval office, we tried again. >> mr. president, what did you mean by "calm before the storm"? yesterday what did you mean by that? >> thank you very much. >> reporter: after a wink, and a pause -- >> you'll find out. >> reporter: the comment especially ominous as the united states is engaged in a war of words with north korea, and the president is on the verge of decertifying the nuclear deal with iran.
6:41 pm
or maybe this was just trump being trump. >> we're never going to say in advance what the president is going to do. >> how seriously should the american adversaries take these comments? is he serious? >> i think you can take the president protecting the american people always extremely serious and if he feels that action is necessary, he'll take it. >> cecelia vega pressing the white house today. we also know the administration is moving forward today on a rollback of an obamacare mandate requiring employee coverage of birth control, 55 million women have access to without a copayment and now some exceptions? >> reporter: employers will no longer offer these insurance plans that cover birth control. if they claim it violates religious beliefs it takes effect immediately. democrats are calling this a new low and republicans are cheering this as the president making good on a campaign promise.
