tv   New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  August 31, 2019 3:00am-4:00am PDT

3:00 am
ay we're working to make your life simple, easy, awesome. go to to get started. this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> good saturday morning to you want we're starting with hurricane dorian. the national hurricane center says it is now an extremely dangerous category-four hurricane capable of causing catastrophic damage. >> right now it's churning in the atlantic with sustained wind speeds of more than 140 miles per hour. parts of the bahamas bracing for a direct hit. extreme flooding, life-threatening storm surge, all possible. >> now all of florida is under a state of emergency, but as of 5:00 a.m., the national
3:01 am
hurricane center says florida may not take a direct hit. however, much. florida is in the cone of uncertainty, meaning landfall is still possible anywhere along the florida east coast. >> the governor is telling everyone in the state take hurricane dorian seriously. a lot of people have already boarded up as officials tell residents to be prepared with at least seven days of supplies. >> we're covering this hurricane from every angle. cnn has crews stretched out across the coast. let's start, though, with cnn meteorologist allison chinchar in the weather center. allison, so the track has changed a bit. what do we know right now? >> reporter: right. the latest information that we have from the national hurricane center, winds are still at 140 miles per hour. again, that is a category four major hurricane. the movement has changed a little bit. it has started to speed up ever so slightly. it's moving west/northwest at about 12 miles per hour. still heading toward the bahamas, still heading toward florida at this point in time. the ultimate question becomes
3:02 am
where does it go in the next few days. one thing to note, we saw a rapid intenseification cycle with this particular storm in the last 24 hours. one of the most impressive things is take a look at this eyewall. not only is it symmetric, but it's very large. you can see the water through this satellite imagery right here underneath that eye. that just goes to show how large of an eyewall that we're dealing with. the track, yes, overall has shifted to the east. it does not take florida out of the cone. i cannot emphasize that enough. this does not mean that florida is in the clear. even if hypothetically it does just hover the east coast and doesn't necessarily make a true landfall over florida, it's going to get close enough thattithat you'll have hurricane-force winds up and down the coast, heavy rainfall, and the potential for power outages. we all know it doesn't take much to knock power out. people need to be prepared even
3:03 am
if the power goes out. here's a look at the models. more starting to shift farther to the east. now a landfall likely, perhaps more possible in south carolina or north carolina. here's why -- this high-pressure system off to the east, this had been what's steering the storm the last few days. it's going to start to break down. a new high-pressure system from the central u.s. is going to start to shift to the east. because of that, the storm is going to have to slide in between the two. we just don't know exactly when it's going to make that turn to the north. that will be key. if it takes a little bit longer, it will end up having a direct landfall on florida. the odd thing is how eerily similar the new forecast track is to hurricane matthew from back in 2016. the yellow line is matthew, the red line is dorian. again, look at how closely they align. matthew ended up making landfall in south carolina. but brushed just along the east coast of florida. but it was still one of the costliest storms to ever hit florida, the east side, because
3:04 am
of how close it got. one thing to note, matthew was a much weaker storm than dorian is right now. >> wow. all right. thank you so much. we appreciate it. i want to go to cnn's brian todd in west palm beach this morning. so brian, i know you're not feeling any effects there, but boy, i know people there are really nervous. >> reporter: they certainly are. that dynamic really played out overnight and all day yesterday and thursday. this is one of those scenes that people here just hate to see in these areas. the bag over the handle, the sign saying designees gas only. -- diesel gas only. we're told they ran out of regular unleaded, then premium unleaded at about 12:30, 1:00 overnight. this was one of those places that had really long lines yesterday. this wawa gas station in palm springs, florida. as you can see here, they pretty much cleaned out here. they are expecting a tanker truck to come shortly, but they don't know exactly when.
3:05 am
we've got aseven-11 that ran out of gas. the governor of florida said half the gas stations in miami were out of gas as of about midday yesterday. so you know, again, the evacuation dynamic and now the changing forecast could change all of this in the next few hours, but people here still felt like they had to make a run on gas in case they were given that mandatory evacuation order that was going to be expected to be issued maybe tomorrow morning. now it's not going to be so clear. i did ask the general manager here, larry peck, about what motivated people to make that run on gas relatively early in the process. >> i think because of the seriousness of the storm, i see this happening a lot sooner. i have a feeling going into closer to the storm like sunday and monday, i have a feeling it's going to be a lot smoother because everyone's taking this so serious as they should. they're being proactive instead of waiting until the last
3:06 am
minute. >> reporter: now the governor of florida, ron disantis, said because of the incredible demand over the last couple of days and possibly today, as well, they've had to change the logistics for tanker trucks to get them to these places. he says they have gas, but they have too much demand, making the capacity very limited to get the gas from the ports to the station. so they've had to change the logistics, escort some tanker trucks along the highways with police escorts, things like that. to give a sense of the run on gas over the past couple of days, that gentleman we talked to, larry peck, said on an average day about 1,700 people buy gas at this station. he thinks that that more than tripled over the past couple of days. >> wow. brian todd for us there. thank you so much. florida's space coast is preparing for whatever dorian may bring. we've seen the shifting in cone. >> nasa's mobile launch platform is being moved inside regardless. it's the only platform available for the space launch system. obviously they don't want the
3:07 am
hurricane or anything from it to damage it. >> nick valencia is on florida's space coast at cocoa beach. what are they doing to prepare there? >> reporter: you know, there's a lot of uncertainty regarding this storm. on wednesday when we first got out here, we'd expected landfall to be sunday into early monday morning. with this latest advisory from the national hurricane center it seems that florida may be spared from a direct hit. here where we are in cocoa beach it took a little bit more of a serious turn last night. we got a call in our hotel room about a mandatory evacuation for parts of brevard county. that includes the kennedy space center as well as the south beaches of merit island. residents in and around the area are expected to evacuate by 8:00 a.m. sunday. driving around, getting into the area yesterday, we did see some of those that were already taking the precautions seriously. people starting to board up windows, doors, businesses, homes, things like that. they're also staging linemen around the state in case power lines go down. and while the state -- the
3:08 am
latest advisory shows the state is not going to take a direct hit, hurricane dorian is expected to grinds up the coast. it's going to cause miserable conditions especially for everyone along the eastern coast of florida. there doesn't appear to be that panic yet. residents here definitely guarded. >> i think everybody is just on edge because we don't know the exact trajectory yet. and that's -- they don't know what to expect and don't know fully what to do. nick valencia, take good care there, you and the crew. thank you so much. >> thanks. breaking overnight, at least ten teams are hurt in a shooting after a high school football game in alabama. >> they were at a friday night game obviously between laflor and williamson high schools. somebody started shooting. the police chief says that it's not clear if there was a fight before the shooting started. but wkrg reports five of the teens are in critical but not life-threatening condition. one victim had a seizure
3:09 am
apparently during all of this. another individual injured his hand while trying to get out of the way. two people are in custody. they're being questioned by police now. the autopsy report for a pro baseball player who died in his hotel room is in. what caused his death and why the family says a los angeles employee is responsible. also, he served two tours in afghanistan but was deported to mexico after 7 1/2 years in prison for a nonviolent drug offense. why the u.s. army veteran is now possibly coming home. also, an arkansas woman drowning in her car calls 911 desperately for help. but newly released audio reveals that the 911 dispatcher is anything but comforting. >> i'm going to -- >> i don't know why you're freaking out. i know the water level is high.

3:13 am
when crabe stronger...strong, with new nicorette coated ice mint. layered with flavor... it's the first and only coated nicotine lozenge. for an amazing taste... ...that outlasts your craving. new nicorette ice mint. breaking news as you look at these pictures here out of hong kong. police pushing back protesters are water cannons this morning. you can see just the immense crowds and hear some of those cannons going off there. these are loaded with blue dye apparently. this is after firebombs were thrown in the direction of police. >> will rip she there on the scene -- ripley is there on the scene. give us an idea, we can see you wearing the mask as the teargas has been deployed.
3:14 am
give us an idea of the scope of the crowd. we need some context on scale compared to what we've skpeen what you're seeing around you now. >> reporter: yeah, that blue giant that christi mentioned is because police trying to manage the illegal gatherings that have sprung up around hong kong. there was supposed to be a legal protest to mark the fifth anniversary that mainland china said that people in hong kong can't vote for their leaders, that their leaders have to be handpicked by china. and there was supposed to be a demonstration, maybe a million people. the police canceled the permit. they said they're not allowed to do it. what we're seeing here instead are these young people -- we'll show over the bridge there. we're outside the legislative council building. they have built a barricade off in the distance where you see the flashing lights. those are hong kong riot police
3:15 am
preparing to possibly move in on the group. i would say there's easily over 1,000 people out here, relatively small compared to the large numbers that we see. but large enough group to shut down this major road in the heart of hong kong. one of the most busy streets that this city has. now completely ground to a halt once again for the 13th consecutive weekend of protests. these protesters are pointing lasers at the government buildings and the police officers who are stationed inside. what is remarkable is that all of this is unfolding, there's a chinese flag waving on that building right behind me there, that's the people's liberation army garrison. that's where the chinese army has thousands of soldiers in hong kong right now, including thousands more that arrived here in the early morning hours is what beijing describes as a troop reation. so you have -- rotation. so you have chinese soldiers inside the walls. hong kong police down the street. and on this side, protesters with gas masks like this gearing
3:16 am
up for yet another night of fighting here on the streets of hong kong. >> all right. will ripley. stay safe there in hong kong. we'll check back throughout the morning. thank you. >> thanks, will. so think about this -- 22 minutes. that's how long a newspaper delivery woman in arkansas pleaded for help as floodwaters started swallowing her suv. >> the recording of her 911 call reveals a dispatcher that at -- that ft. smith police are calling uncaring. here's part of the 911 call. a warning, it is upsetting. >> please, i don't want to die. >> you're not going to die. hold on -- >> i need -- i'm sorry. i need -- >> i understand that you're scared, but there's nothing i can do sitting in a chair. you're going to have to hold on, and i'm going to seconnd somebo. i know the water level is high -- i understand that. you freaking out is doing nothing but losing your oxygen up in there. so calm down. >> when are they going to be
3:17 am
here? >> as soon as they get there. >> that interaction gets mother nature disturbing as the call goes on. we should point out -- debra stevens says, you hear her saying "i'm scared, i've never had anything like this happen to me before." the dispatcher says, "this will teach you next time don't drive in the water." about 15 minutes into the call, the dispatcher starts taking other calls. police say they received several calls from stranded passengers due to flooding and debra stevens says, "i'm going to die." the dispatcher says, "miss debbie, you're breathing just fine because you're screaming at me. i know you're scared. hold on for me." stevens is not heard again. the dispatcher says, "miss debbie, miss debbie, oh, my god, she sounds like she's under water now." rescuers reached the suv 58 minutes after the end of the call. they couldn't revive her.
3:18 am
the interim police chief had this reaction. >> i completely understand the disgust and the concern that we all have. i understand that listening to a person going through the panic that ms. stevens was in those final moments of her life, we would all hope that we would get a little bit better response than perhaps what she was given. i don't want us interacting with anybody in that way. whether it's a life-and-death situation or not. absolutely no criminal -- we've looked at that. she did nothing criminally wrong. i'm not even going to go so far as -- she violated policy. >> police say the dispatcher had turned in her two weeks notice, and this call came in on her last shift. the governor of illinois has issued a pardon for a u.s. army veteran deported to mexico. miguel perez jr. served two tours in afghanistan, but his application for citizenship was
3:19 am
denied because he served 7 1/2 years in prison for a nonviolent drug offense. >> reporter elizabeth nagy from affiliate wls in chicago walks us through this. >> reporter: it's a new day for miguel perez jr. >> there gives us hope that we're closer than ever to bring him home. >> reporter: a late afternoon phone call from governor pritzker answered the prayer the perez family has had on repeat for years. >> sometimes i'm very angry. i say, god, you know but when -- when i know it's not my time, it's your time, but when? >> reporter: on speaker phone from mexico, you can hear the relief in perez jr.'s voice. >> there's no words to express what i feel. i'm just excited. i've been crying. eye been laughing. i've been all over the place. >> reporter: he was born in mexico but grew up on chicago's northwest side.
3:20 am
with the promise of citizenship he served two tours in afghanistan, then a 7 1/2-year prison sentence for a felony drug conviction. in march, 2018, i.c.e. agents immediately swept perez jr. into custody with swift deportation orders. >> they put him on a bridge on the walkway to mexico in his prison clothes to with a plastic bag of some of his stuff. that's what they do to decorated military veteran. >> reporter: since then perez jr. says he's lived a second sentence. >> i wouldn't want to compare it to being a prisoner of war, but it's something like it because being away from my family and everything that i love, my community, my home, it's like being trapped in a foreign place. >> our thanks to our affiliate wlsn, liz nagy for the report. you do not have to be a u.s.
3:21 am
citizen to enlist in the military but must be a permanent resident with a green card. >> the justice department says they're hoping a criminal investigation -- they're opening a criminal investigation on into a series of suspicious deaths in clarksburg, west virginia. >> it's been under scrutiny over the deaths of 11 patients. a source familiar with the investigation says federal investigators included the fbi have been probing the deaths for more than a year and have met with families of potential victims. west virginia senator joe mnuchin says a person of interest has been identified, but the -- in the case but is no longer at the facility. coming up, president trump monitoring hurricane dorian. some people noticing he's largely surrounded by several acting officials including an acting fema administrator. how does that play into the response? ut him? let's do it.

3:26 am
there, and the state has declared an emergency. several counties have issued mandatory evacuation orders already. you can see by that map what we're talking about. we know florida officials are telling residents get your water, get your gas, have cash because if you lose power, you can't get cash. >> atms go down. >> you can't use a credit card if you need something, and if you can even get to something. those are the guidelines for this morning. >> dorian is expect today to pass through the northern bahamas tomorrow into early monday. the bahamas' prime minister has a strong warning. >> do not put your life and those of your loved ones at unnecessary risk. i urge you do not be foolish and try to brave out this hurricane. >> president trump is at camp david this weekend monitoring hurricane dorian instead of traveling to poland as planned.
3:27 am
he will attend a briefing at fema headquarters in washington on sunday afternoon. >> now as he prepares to deal with this, it's being called this monster storm, he's surrounded largely by sufficient acting officials including an acting fema administrator, peter gainor. jeremy diamond joining us live. i know there are concerns about the lack of actual appointed, confirmed leaders in place and the experience to really navigate what might be coming with this storm. >> reporter: yeah. that's absolutely right. look, the president headed off to camp david yesterday evening where he says that he's going to be monitoring a hurricane that he has already described as a monster storm. he's described that camp david as a control center where he'll have fema officials and other experts at his side. but what he will not have at his side are senate confirmed officials at the heads of the two -- the agency and the
3:28 am
department most responsible for disaster relief. the president does not currently have a set confirmed fema administrator, and that is since february when the previous administrator, brock long, resigned. the head of the department of homeland security is acting secretary kevin mclean, and that storms from kirstjen nielsen's resignation in february. now while the president has nominated a head of fema that the senate has not yet acted on, he has not yet nominated a new secretary of homeland security. and the president just yesterday asked about this situation once again reiterating that he likes the word "acting," he likes the flexibility that acting officials do, indeed, afford him. the president is monitoring this hurricane, and with that he suggested that the hurricane is going to be hitting dead center a couple of days ago. it wasn't entirely clear what the president was saying when he said dead center until perhaps when he was asked yesterday about his property at
3:29 am
mar-a-lago. >> how concerned are you about mar-a-lago being in the hurricane's path? >> you know, i haven't even thought about it until the question was just broached a little while ago. yeah, it looked like mar-a-lago's dead center. but look, mar-a-lago can handle itself. that's a very powerful place. the thing i'm worried about is the state of florida. >> reporter: mar-a-lago is just one of several trump properties along the east coast of florida that could potentially be in the storm's path. but as the president looks for developments on the storm's path and where exactly it is going to make landfall, the president will be leaving camp david on sunday to head back to washington where he'll get a briefing at fema hurricanes. that's where we expect the president will be providing some updates on the situation. back to you guys. >> jeremy diamond, not peter, how gracious that man is. i called him peter because we were talking about the
3:30 am
administrator peter gainor. >> i got you. >> i apologize for that. jeremy, thank you so much. >> we've been called i can't tell you how many names over the years. i've been called trevor. i'm not going to tell you which correspondent did that. but it's happened. the trump administration is moving forward with its plans to use military funds to construct the wall at the u.s.-mexico border. in july, the supreme court cleared the way for the white house to divert billions of dollars earmarked for fighting the war on drugs and -- and that's specifically what was listed there. to fund the construction of the wall. now more than $3 billion will be diverted from the military construction fundses, and it's unclear which projects will be impacted by the decision. that's pending the signature of mark esper, the defense secretary. joining me now, errol lewis, cnn political commentator, host of the "you decide" podcast. welcome back. >> good morning, victor. >> so there are some who suggest that, you know, the president is -- is focused on the wall especially so much more now.
3:31 am
there was reporting last week that he was offering pardons potentially for people to break the law to get this wall built. he focused on it because as there are concerning signals about the economy, that this promise is especially important to his base. what do you think? do you believe that? where else would his base go? >> reporter: that's an interesting question. where else will they go? and the answer to that, which is the problem that this administration is facing, is they might stay home. they might be sufficiently disenchenched about the -- di n disenchanted about the promise. there's the economy and building a wall. you could pick a third thing but those will be the issues that this president runs for re-election on. his base very much wants that wall. they still chant it at -- as far as i can tell -- every single rally that he has. all of his re-election rallies. you know, he's -- he has not bl built, by the way, a single new mile of wall or of fencing. they've up until now been able to reconstruct some existing
3:32 am
barriers, but you know, this court case was critical. there's going to continue to be a legal fight, by the way, we should mention. he knows that the clock is running out and that if he -- he wants to be able to pretends to have met the promise he made on day one of his -- the announcement. his campaign in 2015 he's going to have to get something done. >> let's talk about the former vice president joe biden rejecting criticism about a story that he's been telling. he's either conflating several true stories or telling one false story depending upon which perspective from which you look at this. he's done things like this before. is this problematic politically for him? the polls would suggest not. >> no, that's right. it's baked in with what you get with joe biden for one thing. also, we have experienced, we know that there are successful candidates including president reagan comes to minds -- i remember throughout my youth watching as president reagan was
3:33 am
caught in one false memory after another -- and i think the verdict of the voters in that case, as will probably be true with joe biden, is that the accuracy of the details doesn't matter as much as the overall story. so when ronald reagan would go around saying that his unit was personally on site at the liberation of nazi concentration camps which, in fact, he was in california, the unit that was processing the film that was coming back from the liberation of concentration camps, you know, it didn't mean he didn't care. i think the public let that go. i think you're going to find that with joe biden. he got the name of the service wrong. he got the date wrong. the title that he had at the time was probably inaccurate. those inaccuracies don't take away from the power of the story that he's trying to tell. i think voters will probably understand that. it will be difficult i think for him to make the argument that one reason he should be president is that he gets all of
3:34 am
the details right in a way that the incumbent president donald trump does not. >> yeah. it also depends upon how often this happens throughout the rest of the campaign. but when you're running against -- if he's the nominee -- the president who at this point has 12,000-plus false and misleading statements according to the "washington post," it may be hard for voters to say i'm going with -- with president trump because joe biden's making these mistakes. >> although i would caution you, remember, four years ago no matter what outrageous thing candidate trump did, people would turn around and say, but her emails -- you know, so the question of sort of false equivalency might be -- might come into play if that is an issue. or voters might have to decide, you know, assuming joe biden is the nominee, they might have to decide we've got two candidates who really kind of fudge on the facts a lot. >> all right. errol lewis, good to have you. >> thanks, victor. we are getting the autopsy for the pro-baseball player found -- pro baseball player
