wanted to begin with hurricane maria, category 4 storm. winds of at least 155 miles an hour. this is the strongest hurricane to hit puerto rico in nearly a century. >> ahead of the storm's arrival, forecasters warned of catastrophic damage and life threatening flooding and the island's public safety commissioner did not mince words. telling people you have to evacuate otherwise you're going to die. >> and it appears that blunt warning had an impact. this morning thousands of residents and tourists streamed into shelters and riding out the storm as we speak. >> we have complete coverage this morning in puerto rico's governor will join us live in a couple of minutes. let's begin with gabe gutierrez, he's in san juan, gabe, what's it like? >> reporter: matt, savannah, the situation here in dire. we have been seeing pounding winds and howling rain throughout the morning. san juan is getting hammered by maria. authorities have been practically begging people throughout the past few days to
7:03 am
flood-prone areas and wooden structures. we have sought shelter in a concrete structure, as you can see, this is a scene of utter chaos. now the time to evacuate is over. this is the strongest storm to hit puerto rico in nearly a century. after storming through the caribbean with a vengeance, this morning maria is a life-threat behemoth, slamming puerto rico. tenth strongest atlantic hurricane ever recorded. >> i have a lump thinking about what's about to happen. and i am really worried about people not only getting injured, but losing their lives. >> reporter: the storm strengthening again before pounding st. croix with winds of 1756 miles an hour. the largest escaped the wrath of hurricane irma, but now is struggling with similar devastation as other parts of the caribbean, maria also ripping through the remote islands.
7:04 am
dominika. she evacuated after irma tore through her home in st. john. now she's facing the horror all over again. >> there's nothing i can do. i have to just stay calm for my family and i have to persevere. >> reporter: as san juan is boarded up, evacuees streamed into 500 shelters. >> we didn't even have a chance to rebuild yet. >> reporter: san juan's mayor for a message for the rest of the u.s. >> remember that you are part of us, even if you're not here. don't forget us. just don't forget us. >> reporter: maria expected to slice through puerto rico with ferocious winds capable of destroying buildings, up to two feet of rain in a storm surge of up to nine feet, likely spawning massive flooding. >> i think the guests probably don't have any idea of about what's to happen here. i don't think anybody does, this is an unprecedented, historic hurricane. >> reporter: the s
7:05 am
juan is intensifying and the situation is deteriorating. you can see thesen rains pounding san juan and we've seen debris peeled off roofs. we're in a structure seeking shelters, authorities here fear power could be knocked out to four to six months. again, the governor here saying this could be a potentially catastrophic situation and the worst of it is just still hours away. matt, savannah. >> all right gabe gutierrez in the thick of it there. >> let's go right over, mr. red oaker is -- mr. roker is standing in the weather area. >> this is exactly what we did not want to happen. it has now made land fall, category 4 storm, 30 miles southeast of san juan, puerto rico, 155 mile per hour winds, moving northwest at 10 miles per hour. here's what we're looking for as far as the impacts on this thing. we're talking wind gusts over
7:06 am
going on right now. the gusts out there, we've had gusts of 90. the storm surge is going to be catastrophic, six to nine feet, extreme damage to buildings and marinas and flooding. rivers and highways flooding with lots of mudslides, upwards of 25 inches of rain before this is all over. now, as far as the impacts and let's go over here, the impacts right now for maria, here's what we're looking at, dominican republic tomorrow, 50 to 75 mile per hour winds. four to six foot storm surge, rainfall four to six to eight feet. turks and caicos on friday, 120 to 125 mile per hour winds. the surge is going to be incredible, and then the path continues along by monday, 2:00 a.m., we're looking at really a really a still a strong storm. now here the models. this is the spaghetti plot that continues it on up to the north. and you c
7:07 am
out any land fall along the southeastern atlantic coast. we're watching this. now why do we think, hopefully, it will stay offshore? well, we've got maria here, and then we've got jose up off the northeast coast. now what's going to happen, we got two areas of high pressure, we expect maria to make it's way between those two areas of high pressure, following jose. and even if that weakens, we've got another system coming this way, but all of these things have to come into play to keep maria offshore from the southeastern atlantic. right now all eyes on puerto rico. they're not out of the woods, they have a full day of battering, damaging, and possibly devastating storm surge, wind, and rain. >> it's the nightmare scenario. now we want to get more with puerto rico's governor. governor, good morning, and we appreciate your time, sir. how are you fairing? what are the conditions you're witnessing? >> well, the conditions are
7:08 am
the critical part over here right now is to make sure people are safe and we opened 500 shelters. we're making sure we can maintain communication with them as long as possible. this is say clearly going to be the most devastating storm in the history of our island. and our main focus, our only focus right now is to make sure that people are out of harm's way, that they recognize that this is just the beginning of the storm. that it's going to take about another half a day to the worst part of it hits in terms of the wind strength, but then we're going to get a lot of rain, which of course is going to produce a lot of flooding. so dangerous scenario, but obviously we have a lot of faith that we'll be able to save lives and then start replacing. that is replaceable.
7:09 am
safe and officials there including you, you did not mince words. you told people get out or the results would be horrific. you've got all of those shelt s shelters, you have all those people in those shelters, are those shelters all equipped to withstand of 150, 160 miles per hour? >> well, you know, it is a critical question. we have a code of construction established right around 2011. the infrastructure that was built right after that should withstand those winds. of course, some of it did not went under those codes, but really the critical component was we have a lot of houses over here that are wooden. that are flooded areas. those houses had no chance. essentially at the strength that these winds are coming in, you know, the high levels of flooding we're going to get. what we wanted to make sure was to put
7:10 am
safest possible way, place, they're out of flooding areas. they are built in solid concrete. so we expect them to withhold, of course, the tenth strongest hurricane of it's kind. so, and it's a slow storm as well. so it's going to be here in puerto rico for a while. our hope is that it can withstand. we know we've put them in a much better position. information of the infrastructure, of the weak infrastructure that we have it's in the early onset of the storm, it's been devastated. so again our only focus throughout this preparation process was to make sure people got out of harm's way. went either to their, you know, some of the shelters or family homes that were safer. >> governor, you have our thoughts and our prayers with you. these are going to be some tough
7:11 am
we're going -- >> thank you, thank you all and thank you for your thoughts and prayers. >> thank you. we're going to keep following this and have the latest from puerto rico all throughout the morning. turn now to the other disaster that's playing out right now. that devastating earthquake in mexico. this morning the death toll there is skyrocketing, now in the hundreds. and rescuers are searching frantically for survivors under rubble of buildings that collapsed. the 7.1 epicenter about 80 miles to the southeast of mexico city. miguel al ma gar is there, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. this is the scene across mexico city, block after block, building after building in ruins. this is an employment center over my shoulder where dozens of people have been rescued and where dozens more are still believed to be buried underneath all of this debris. at a nearby school, the bodies of 20 children have been recovered. the death toll now officially st a

streets. too afraid to go back inside. since that massive 7.1 quake, there have been no major aftershocks, that's allowed first responders to continue to search through the debris just hours before the quake was triggered, they were marking the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 earthquake that killed more than 10,000 people. many people were practicing drills they then used just hours later, matt and savannah, back to you. >> miguel in the midst of another terrible story in mexico. miguel, thank you very much. in the meantime it's a consequential day on the heels of his first address to the united nations assembly. the combative speech including harsh warnings for north korea and iran and drew mixed reviews from other world leaders. peter alexander is at u.n., peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt, savannah, good morning to you. president trump sitting down today for back to back to back

within 75 miles of it. they've only been hit by a category 5 storm once in 1928. if you think about it, the storms are really very small relative to the size of the ocean. it takes a very precise path for these storms to make a direct hit, and unfortunately we are getting that precise path for these storms. >> let's go back and look at irma. that was a category 4 storm, it was a glancing blow, you and al tell us about the weak and the strong sides of the storm, does it matter in this case because it's cutting diagonally right across puerto rico. >> irma was a test run, it stayed 30 miles offshore and still, 70% of people were without power, 34% were without water. now this storm is staying to the southwest of san juan, the most populated city 12 is now on the dirty side, the northeast side of the storm, we are going to see much more significant damage. >> it seems like day after day, hurricane, hurricane, hundred, how much longer of the meat of the hurricane season do we have to face? >> well, we are in th
7:38 am
we're just getting passed peak, 13 name storms so far this season. savage ten. it's an above average season. the thing is this year we've had two category 5 hurricanes in the same season, that hasn't happened for ten years. we had two category 4 hurricanes make direct land fall in the mainland united states. so, i think this year, it seems more active because many more people are affected as opposed to these storms staying out over the water. so it's certainly raised awareness and we're concerned because people are impacted. >> they are. dylan, thank you very much. for more, let's go over to al. >> all right guys, let's take a look at jose which is just hanging out right now at this point. it's a tropical storm, 195 miles south of nantucket, 65 mile per hour winds, moving northeast at eight miles per hour and keeping in context of this kind of crazy season, i've never seen a system kind of just do this loop like this. and just kind of sit out there.

8:02 am
"today" on this wednesday morning. thank you for joining us. we're going to get outside and say hi to them because you know what, we need some handshakes and hugs on a morning like this. >> we really do, it is just so sad, we've got twin stories going on right now. breaking overnight. two major disasters. let's get right to your news at 8:00. puerto rico facing a catastrophe as hurricane maria makes land fall this morning with historic fury. we're going to start with gaudy schwartz, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah, good morning, matt. you were asking about the storm shelters, hurricane shelters here. we're in one. this is a concrete structure. that is what's going on outside of us. in fact if we can walk over to here, you can see at the corner of that parking lot, the flood waters are already starting to rise. and let me show you what's going on in here. it's a little bit windy. we are in a huge coliseum, these doors are flying open, flying closed, in fact, just down the hallway, there were some pole
8:03 am
with fire hoeses and the zip tis and the doors kept flying over. over here, this is a less-protected side. you can see there are already trees that have come down right down here. and we're seeing debris flying through in area. and if we come through these doors, we have to be careful here, they've been flying open and there's some debris down there. some of the ceiling panelling are starting to fall. let me show you the shelter. this thing is massive. this is a coliseum right here. and earlier, last night, there were people sleeping here about 3, 400 people sleeping down there. then the roof started to leak, and if you look up, as the wind starts blowing, you can see the fabric of that roof start blowing. so the roof started to leak, they took a precaution, they moved everybody to the side wing. so a lot of the people are now under bleachers, but again, here in san juan, here in puerto rico, you heard the governor earlier say that about 10,000, a little bit more than 10,000 people evacuated to shelters
8:04 am
million people. matt and savannah. >> terrifying night, thank you very much. >> we want to know how long that hurricane's going to stay there and where it's headed, hey al. >> yeah, in fact we're watching right now. you can kind of watch the eye start to fill in a bit as it gets inland. and it is just now to the southeast of san juan. it's 15 miles south, southwest of san juan. 150 mile per hour winds. it's moving northwest at ten miles per hour. and we put on some of the current wind gusts here and you'll see that basically, we're talking about some gusts right now of over 100 miles per hour, you can see all over as you get further to the west, it's a little bit less, but we are looking also at a storm surge that is going to be devastating, six to nine feet generally a little bit less as you get into the northwest corner and the flooding is going to be a big problem with rain up to 25 inches. now, the impacts of this as it goes forward, dominican republic
8:05 am
turks and caicos, friday, 125 mile per hour winds, four to eight inches of rain or more. then sunday, by monday morning, it's out into the atlantic. we put the spaghetti plots in now, to give you the ensemble models, as you can see as it continues up on into the mid-atlantic, we have some of them that actually bring it onshore. we're going to have to continue to watch this. we think steering wise that maria will come between these two big areas of high pressure and kind of follow jose out, but if either of these weaken, we have to worry about the system making it's way to the mid-atlantic. so, we're going to have to just continue to watch as we're still five to seven dales out from that point, but right now our main concern, the folks in puerto rico and going forward into the turks and caicos and the dominican republic. >> one day at a time. thank you very much. now we turn to that earthquake disaster in mexico. search for survivors and victims growing more desperate this morning in mexico city. ashe
8:06 am
overnight to more than 200 people. nbc's miguel almaguer has the latest, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. the scene of destruction across so much of mexico city. the building behind me actually pancaked below. it was a six story building. search and rescue teams are currently conducting search and rescues all across this region. this powerful 7.1 earthquake rattled this region, bringing it to it's knees. thousands flooded right into the streets moments after this massive quake. many fearing there would be massive aftershocks in it's path. so far, there have not been, but the death toll here has climbed to some 200. officials say that number will no doubt rise in the coming days. at this hour, we are told thousands are among the missing, among the missing, they are searching them from building to building, location to location, they're asking for quiet on the streets so they can hear the cries of those that are still trapped. still a very active scene unfolding all across
8:07 am
city. >> active and tragic scene, miguel, thank you very much. also this morning, president trump's speech to the united nation is reverberating around the world. especially in his threat to totally destroy north korea if the u.s. is forced to defend itself. earlier this morning, we spoke with nikki haley, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and asked her to clarify those remarks. >> i think what you saw was the president was responding to north korea's ballistic missile testing, their nuclear bomb test, and their threats that they're going to reduce the united states to ashes, as well as destroy japan. so what you saw was a very firm response to the kim regime that they need to back off, and he the entire international community with him. >> yeah, but the last time the president used words like that, threatening words against north korea was that whole fire and fury thing about five weeks ago. in the time since then, kim jong-un has tested three missiles, two of them flying over japan, and tested a hydrogen bomb. aren't you afraid thate
8:08 am
into making a catastrophic mistake? >> look, words are not what's going to push him into making a mistake. what we've seen is no matter whether it's sanctions, whether it's words, whether it's dialogue, we have tried every possible measure, we have reduced all of our diplomatic measures, as much as possible to try and see how we can get to him. the thing is you've got a very paranoid leader who is determined to show his strength, who's determined to threaten his neighbors and threaten the united states, and i think the president has to speak up. he has to speak up on behalf of the american people and on behalf of our allies and our friends. >> ambassador haley defended the stern warning to iran saying that if it does not live up to it's end of the nuclear treaty negotiated during the obama administration, it could become another north korea. >> let's turn now and hoda has a morning boost for us. >> let's lighten it up, kids. imagine you're at a beer garden with your friends, listening to live music, ihr

8:52 am
most distinct memory from the match itself? >> probably when he jumped the net and said i underestimated you. my dad taught my brother and i, my younger brother was a pitcher for the san francisco giants, good slider, my dad emphasized you always respect your opponent, even if you don't like them. and you always -- never, ever underestimate them. so when he said that, i went oh, i can't wait to tell daddy. >> sweet. >> that is so nice. billie jean king, how is this changeup? >> he was really good on the slider. >> i like a good slider. >> a good slider. i love it. >> i'm with you there. >> i want to tell people you're going to be back with hoda and kathie lee. battle of the sexes hits theaters on friday. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc. thank you. >>
