good morning. it's thursday, september 7th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." hurricane irma with 185-mile-an-hour winds leaves a catastrophe behind. a look ahead. and rare interview with paul simon and his wife edy bra kel. the personal connection that led them to give $1 million to help hurricane harvey victims. but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> hurricane irma isar breling toward florida after destroying lives and homes in the northern caribbe caribbean. >> ss weurvey the da,mage we're seeing a lot of this. we've got power lines draped
8:01 am
>> folks say theyn pla on riding out the storm right here. but officials are telling us if you do decide to ayst, you're on your own. >> we still have a cat 5, still 185-mile-per-hour s.wind >>nk thi people need to untadersnd you've about got to listen to your local officials. the storm surge can kill you. >> the president here decided to buck his own party. gayle, despite that tense meeting, speaker paul ryan is still slated to havein dner with the president tonight and know you'd like to be a fly on that wall. >> we'd all like to be a couple of flies on the wall. >> this is interesting. dennis rodman who weirdly might be the only person in the world who knows both kim jong-un and president trump. he was asked what they do. >> we do karaoke, do a lot of cool things together, ride horses, hang out, go skiing. >> i would love
8:02 am
karaoke song is. i hope it's gloria is stevan. i hope it's "this rhythm is going to get you." >> hurricane irma is burning closer to florida this morning after devastating some caribbean islands. the storm so far has killed at least ten people. some areas will need months or years to rebuild. >> the most powerful hurricane that ever opened in atlantic is packing sustained winds of 180 miles per hour. florida governor rick scott says irma is bigger, faster, and stronger. sounds like a kanye west song. hurricane andrew set records for the damage it caused back in 19912. irma is passing the dominican republican right now and will hit the bahamas before turning north toward florida. tony dokoupil is on the hard-hit east coast of puerto rico. tony, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the northern side of puerto rico is waking up to considerable destruction this morning. giant trees are on bin
8:03 am
in this case across the road. and if puerto ricans take a new route to get out, that side is blocked as well. ten trees down on this road alone. the center of irma narrowly missed puerto rico, but with a storm this powerful, it still left behind a trail of destruction. irma knocked out power to at least 9,000 people and left tens of thousands without drinking water. 185-mile-per-hour wind, heavy rains and storm surge caused massive destruction. the french interior minister says the country's territorial islands will need to be rebuilt. the dutch prime minister said their half of st. martin is not reachable due to the damage. nearly every building on the island of barbuda was damaged and about 0% of the population has been left homeless and the images out of puerto rico are giving official in the continental united states concern about the potential damage it will bring this.
8:04 am
pictures. thank you. chief weathercaster lonnie quinn of our affiliate station wcbs, good morning. >> we're confident irma is going to continue to the west-northwest. we're also confident this front you see right here is deflected to the north. we're not confident how much. that's key. if you zoom in tight on this storm, it is so much about where the eye of the storm goes. you see this little bright yellow color in there. those are the peak winds. they only extend 15 miles, 1-5, 15 miles from the eye. that's where you find the 158-mile-an-hour winds. if you take a look at the track of the storm, the national hurricane center says here it comes, yep, it's making that term to the north. anywhere in this area is a possibility. if the european model is right and the
8:05 am
worst, they see the landfall with the eye right on shore. that puts what would be 140-mile-per-hour 1-800-s right on shore. if they're off by 20 miles it keeps the big winds offshore. if they're 50 miles off, it keep all of the storm offshore. a lot of speculation here. we keep an eye on this one closely. charlie? >> thanks, lonnie j many trying to escape irma's path are having a hard time finding a way out. american airlines says it will stop flying to four airports in south florida by friday afternoon. with all the turmoil, some flyers are complaining the airlines are gouging them. kris van cleave is at the philadelphia airport, one of the many destinations affected by the disruptions. kris, good morning. >> goo
8:06 am
for people looking to fly out they're finding limited options and high prices. the airlines are responding to that but so are local and national regulators saying they're going to investigate reports of price gouging. >> it's a high price for some to is skate hurricane irma and people are expressing outrage over ticket prices on social media. on twitter this woman said a flight from miami to phoenix jumped from over $500 to more than 3,200 bucks when she tried to book on a travel website. she later tweeted delta quoted her a reasonable fair. another flight showed $1,000 from florida to new york. on wednesday the backlash prompted some airlines to cap the remaining seats. a flight on american airlines won't cost more than $99. jetblue capped it at $99
8:07 am
with a connection and delta, $399, that if you find an open seat. these people were some of the last. >> i'm sad because i've been trying to get to key west for years but i'd rather be alive. i'm upset about it. >> reporter: while prices increased as passengers rushed to book flights airlines say they did not change their air structure. they say the cost of a seat increases as flights fill up and last-minute tickets cost more. >> that's where you get these f $00, $700, $800 fares. pam bondi says she's making sure the problem gets fixed. >> i do not regulate these airlines but i'm going to protect the floridians. i have the white house on standby if they're not doing their job, but they're doing it. >> bondi says her office in
8:08 am
in the last two days to everything from food to flights and she's working with amazon to try to combat unnecessary delivery charges with irma is in their flight path. >> you get hit with that and then you get price gouged. not nice. the president and first lady reveal the charities that they will share their million donation for harvey relief. the biggest ones go to red cross and the salvation army. each will receive $300,000. the outpours for harvey victims is also coming from corporationsing athletes, and artists all around the country. thoechbt mason shows us a gift from a very high-profile musical cup. anthony mason is at the table. >> good morning, good morning. paul simon and edy
8:09 am
have been married since 1992 usually keep their donations private but they went public with this one because harvey was personal. >> what made you talk about this gift? >> edy brocail and paul simon wanted to reach down deep. >> we decided we would also give a million dollars. >> reporter: the couple both grammy-award singing songwriters will give when they join willy nelson in bayne fit concert in austin on september 22nd. >> when you saw this happening to your home state, what were you thinking? >> sad, just really sad. >> reporter: this video was sent to bra kale by brad houser, her bass player in the band the bohemians. >> i feel sad when it's your home state.
8:10 am
i feel a great responsibility to come in and do what i can. >> reporter: other artists have pledged a million dollars including leonardo decap preial and sandra bullock. >> i was moved by it and inspired by it. >> why? >> my mom and i, we like his mooeshs a lot. that was the first one i heard about. it opened my heart more. i said i 50ed love to do that too. if we can offer that same inspiration to give, then that would be great. >> paul simon has seen disasters before. he co-founded the children's health fund which sent mobile medical units in after hurricane katrina in 2005. >> it was kind of a rare moment where the whole country was a community. everybody focused on how to help. if we could bottle that, it's a more efficie
8:11 am
problem-solving. >> you made a point of saying you wanted to help some of the smaller towns around houston. >> people who feel forgotten in small towns out in the country and they lose eing. >> so brocail and simon will target their donations to medical and medical needs. >> we're not goinging one bill umbrella but a lot of little umbrellas all over. >> as generous as their million-dollar gift is it's going to take a lot more. the governor greg abbott says it's going cost more than 1$180 billion. >> i love that they like tyler perry. that was a nice little nugget. >> wasn't it nice that she said it opened her heart. >> that that's what touched her. i think that happens a hot. >> thank you, anthony. >> nice to be here. >> a pleasure to have you at the table. so busin

8:19 am
and they correlated it to when the child was born and six genes associated with preterm birth are out there. >> when i saw this story i immediately clicked on it. i'm interested too. is gene therapy essentially the future of medicine? >> i think targeting the genes in this case rather than correcting them, yes. right now all of a sudden we have the rosetta stone to all of us. inside of one size fits all, we're going to know in advance what's going to happen. so knowledge is key. >> but, in fact, gene therapy is a significant part of it, is it not? >> no question. vierts hard to do gene therapy and change all the genes in the body. it's easier to change one particular cell type. so in order to change the whole body, it's going to be difficult. but in this case knowing one is a uterine protein, for example, that we may be able to alter to
