ryder cup. but what's wrong with this picture? good evening. and we begin tonight with the deadly hurricane on the move. a category 4. winds reaching 140 miles an hour. tonight, authorities already issuing warnings right here in the u.s. the hurricane bringing drenching rain, powerful wind gusts, and a dangerous storm surge in the caribbean. flash floods already in jamaica. people struggling to push cars through the fast-rising waters. across haiti, warnings of possible devastation to come, and just look at the size of hurricane matthew tonight. and from the space station this evening, this image just in. the eye of the storm so perfectly formed there. ginger zee has the new models here. the possible tracks, as this now heads toward the u.s. next. but first, abc's linsey davis in haiti. >> reporter: tonight, hurricane matthew already deadly and closing in on haiti. >> the wind just started to pick up.
>> reporter: now packing 140-mile-per-hour winds. at one point, the strongest atlantic hurricane in nearly a decade. but it's the storm's slow speed, moving at just 7 miles per hour, that makes it so dangerous. we made our way into haiti today from the neighboring dominican republic. the outer bands are already starting to bring heavy rain, and the worst of the storm is still hours away. parts of the island could see more than three feet of rain. potentially triggering deadly mudslides. making matters worse, six years after the disastrous earthquake of 2010 that left more than 200,000 people dead, more than 50,000 people here are still living in makeshift shelters. >> as we know, we're not really prepared for this type of hurricane, but we're doing the best that we can. >> reporter: and at this orphanage outside of port-au-prince, they've boarded up the windows and moved their more than 60 children to the second floor. the storm has already killed at least four across region.
already evacuated 700 military family members from guantanamo bay. this man warns residents to evacuate. long lines are forming for food and supplies. worshippers at this church pray they'll be spared. and with odds increasing for a landfall in the u.s. later this week, states of emergency have already been declared from florida to north carolina. >> and we won't gamble with people's lives and the livelihood of many people up and down >> reporter: david, the entire region is bracing for what is being described as life-threatening rain. we're talking about potentially 40 inches of rain, which could be devastating for people who are still living here in some homes that are rather fragile, homes that will offer very little protection. it's going to be a long 24 hours ahead. david? >> all right, linsey, you and the team stay safe tonight. in the meantime, this massive hurricane is going to pass right between haiti and cuba, as linsey mentioned, and it will pass just to the east of jamaica, where they are taking
abc's gio benitez is in kingston. >> reporter: tonight in jamaica, time is running out for last minute preparations, as hurricane matthew passes close to the island of 3 million people. >> this particular hurricane, by virtue of its trajectory, will have a severe impact on jamaica. >> reporter: and we're already seeing a preview. cars stuck in high water after a quick passing outer band hit the island. the big concern tonight, flooding. the other concern, tornadoes. this waterspout spotted right off the beach on the southern part of the island. in kingston, streets are empty. this, as the u.s. state department urges all americans to get off these caribbean islands now, fearing it could soon be too late. and david, just take a look. here in kingston, jamaica, we are seeing some powerful and dangerous surf. and even though this island may be spared the brunt of the storm, we're still looking at the possibility of tropical storm-force winds and even a foot of rain.
>> all right, gio and linsey, both in the storm zone tonight. our thanks to you both. let's get right to chief meteorologist ginger zee, who is tracking this for us. and where is this right now? >> reporter: right. the slow-mover is now 225 miles south and west of port-au-prince, so, it is haiti in the immediate and frightening threat tonight. it is overnight into cuba tomorrow, then, the bahamas eventually as we get into wednesday. that's the timing there, as we move out of the islands. and i wanted to go through it here, the forecast. tuesday, 4:00 a.m., that center passes that southwestern portion. that's where we were talking about the isolated amounts of 40-plus inches, life-threatening rain. eastern cuba gets it tomorrow as the center passes over. lots of warm water, plenty of energy to get into and now west of the bahamas, and that's where we're concerned, david. this track, the latest official from the national hurricane center, has shifted to the west, and although there is a large margin of error when we get to day four and day five, this is a big deal, because it now encompasses miami to jacksonville, charlotte, charleston, wilmington.
those spaghetti plots that we were talking about, steering from the high pressure system, the cold front trying to push it out. the two computer models long range that we look at and you've heard of, the european and the american, both take it close to, or landfall in north carolina by this weekend. and then start to die verge. much bigger impact from the american model by monday into new england. >> all right, tracking this for several days ahead. ginger zee, our thanks to you tonight. in the meantime, we turn next this evening to major developments in the race for the white house. donald trump, just mom headline about his taxes. what he's saying now about reports he might not have paid federal income taxes for nearly 20 years. and it comes amid new polls out just tonight, nationally, hillary clinton after the first debate now at 47% to donald trump's 42%. and in the key battlegrounds, in florida tonight, clinton moving up there, 46% to trump's 41%. they were tied there last month. in pennsylvania tonight, clinton at 45%, trump 41%. no real change there. and in north carolina, another
trump, 43%. but in ohio tonight, the most welcome headline for donald trump, he is ahead there at 47% to clinton's 42%. abc's tom llamas on trump's reaction a short time ago on his taxes. >> reporter: tonight, donald trump praising himself after that front-page story revealed he may not have paid federal income taxes for nearly 20 years. >> i have legally used the tax laws to my benefit and to the benefit of my company, my investors and my employers. i mean, honestly, i have brilliantly -- i have brilliantly used those laws. >> reporter: this latest drama began when "the new york times" obtained part of trump's 1995 personal tax return, showing in just one year, trump claimed a $916 million loss. under the law, that would've allowed him to avoid paying federal income tax for nearly 20 years.
mailbox of a "times" reporter in a mysterious manila envelope. no name, just a trump tower return address. the trump campaign learned about it on saturday. that night, as the story went up online, trump took the stage in philadelphia. >> thank you, everybody. thank you. >> reporter: he was two hours late, sounding red hot and ripping into hillary clinton. >> i don't even think she's loyal to bill, you want to know the truth. and really, folks, really. why should she be, right? >> reporter: but as he spoke, the story of his taxes exploding. "snl" soon taking aim. >> he hasn't released his tax returns, which means he's either not a that rich. >> wrong. >> not that charitable. >> wrong. >> or he's never paid taxes in his life. >> warmer. >> reporter: in the past, trump has complained that not everyone pays their fair share. >> that's the amazing thing is that half of the country is paying nothing, zero. and even if you don't make a
just something, to be apart of the game. >> reporter: he's also zeroed in on the rich, tweeting, "the hedge fund guys, gals, have to pay higher taxes asap. they are paying practically nothing." but tonight, trump won't confirm or deny whether he paid any federal income taxes in the past 20 years. >> i was able to use the tax laws of this country and my business acumen to dig out of the real estate mess. few others were able to do what i did. >> reporter: and trump facing another controversy tonight involving his fortune. new york's attorney general sending a cease and desist letter, barring trump's charitable foundation from raising money in new york, saying it was not registered to do so. that same attorney general, a democrat, is investigating whether trump used charitable donations from the foundation to settle lawsuits against his businesses and buy himself gifts. the campaign tonight blasting
>> and tom llamas with us live outside trump tower tonight. and tom, we heard no denials from donald trump to the reporting in "the new york times" about him not paying federal income taxes for nearly 20 years. so, what does the campaign say tonight to those that might ask, why not just release the returns, then, and move past this? >> reporter: well, david, tonight, we put in a formal request with the campaign. they told us, quote, mr. trump is under audit. now, in the past, trump has said since he's under audit, he's been advised not to release his tax returns, but nothing legally is preventing him from doing so. dad? >> tom llamas with us again tonight. tom, thank you. and the best news for trump tonight, that new battleground poll in ohio that has him leading there, which is why hillary clinton is there. so is abc's cecilia vega. >> reporter: in ohio today, it seemed like hillary clinton couldn't wait to get in front of the microphone and rip into donald trump. >> toledo is the kind of place where people work hard, look after one another, and, yes, pay
right? >> reporter: here in the battleground, trump is winning. clinton not letting up. >> here's my question -- what kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a single year? >> reporter: but clinton now facing heat herself. over leaked comments she made back in february during a closed-door fund-raiser about young bernie sanders supporters. >> they're children of the great recession, and they are living in their parents' basement, they feel that they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves, and they don't see much of a future. >> reporter: trump says clinton was being nasty to sanders supporters, but her old rival coming to her defense. >> what she was saying there is absolutely correct. >> reporter: with the next debate just six days away, clinton hoping for a repeat of the first one, now fodder for "snl." >> my microphone is broken. she broke it. with obama.
they took it to kenya. they took my microphone to kenya and they broke it, and now it's broken. >> secretary clinton, what do you think about that? >> i think i'm going to be president. >> reporter: the real life hillary clinton, today, all smiles. >> it's great! i'm so excited. >> reporter: raising a fist in the air, celebrating an endorsement from one of ohio's most famous sons, lebron james. the nba superstar writing, "we need a president who brings us together and keeps us unified. policies and ideas that divide us more are not the solution." >> and cecilia vega joining us live from akron, ohio. and tomorrow night, cecilia, we all know the vp debate. what are you learning tonight from your sources on both sides about the stakes here? >> reporter: david, tim kaine essentially needs to debate two men tomorrow night. mike pence and donald trump. for mike pence, though, the pressure is on for him to overcome donald trump's performance during that last debate. most americans say he lost that one. for mike pence, david, he's got to come out swinging tomorrow
