7:05 am
were toppled over. this one happens to be 50 feet tall and now blocking this road. thousands of people are still without power and that storm surge flooded entire communities. overnight, hermine smashed into florida's gulf coast. making landfall as a category one hurricane around 1:30 a.m. eastern time, dumping torrential rain. >> i can't see! oh, my gosh! >> reporter: and unleashing powerful winds of 80 miles per hour. the first hurricane to hit the state of florida in more than a decade has already knocked out power to tens of thousands of people. roads in alligator harbor have been torn apart. massive storm surges, some projected to be up to 12 feet

7:07 am
norah? >> that is some good news. omar, thank you so much. here is a new view from nasa that shows the scope of the storm. you can see hermine stretches across much of the southeastern united states. meteorologist lissette gonzalez of wfor is tracking its path. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. hermine made landfall as a category one hurricane just east of st. marks, florida. that was overnight around 1:30 a.m. although it has weakened into a tropical storm, it is still drenching portions of central and north florida. even up through georgia and the carolinas. right now under a tornado watch so the threat for flooding and storm surge and tornadoes are continuing. look for the forecast and move across georgia and into the carolinas as we head into the next couple of days. into the weekend a lot of uncertainty. we could have a remnant area of low pressure just offshore. the mid-atlantic, the northeast coast. regardless, all of that moisture will provide for an additional 4 to 6 inches of rain not only for florida and portions of the

carolinas and tropical storm force winds and rip currents and to stay on high alert and aware what happens with hermine over the next few days. >> the tropical storm could have a devastating affect on florida's fine against zika. for the first time, officials have trapped mosquitoes carrying the virus in the continental united states. the insects were found within the miami beach zika zone. michelle miller is here with how officials are responding. >> reporter: good morning. the discovery of zika inside those mosquitoes confirms that the insects are, in fact, spreading the virus here in the united states. and as hurricane hermine hits florida, where 49 people have been infected by local transmission, the state's governor is bracing for the impact. >> we have got to get rid of standing water. the most important thing to do now and after this storm hits. >> reporter: in the lead-up to hurricane hermine, florida officials have been relentless
7:09 am
removing even the smallest traces of water to stop the spread of sflzika. after inspecting nearly 2,500 samples, florida officials identified the virus in three groups of mosquitoes trapped in miami beach. a first in the continental united states. >> if there are positive traps, we know when, we know where. all right? we can identify where this transmission is occurring. >> reporter: one of those positive traps was at the miami beach botanical garden which is temporarily closed while crews remove its featured plants. the flowers collect mosquitoes where they can breed. while hurricane hermine could drop more than a foot of rain in parts of the state, scientists say its impact on mosquitoes is a double-edged sword. >> the good news about hurricanes is they can wash away mosquito populations. the downside is that the hurricane will interrupt any ongoing efforts of mosquito
7:10 am
control and then as the floodwaters recede, we could see the reappearance of mosquitoes. >> reporter: another problem florida is facing is fighting zika is the cost. the director of the cdc said this week, that funds have almost run out. the house will consider a $1.1 billion zika bill when it returns from vacation next week. >> michelle, thank you so much. donald trump's immigration plan is getting backlash from some of his strongest latino supporters on the day after he promised to enforce the law and deport immigrant law breakers trump sent mixed signals. >> reporter: for donald trump, spelling out his immigration policy is proving to be more difficult than maybe even he expected, raising doubts for hispanic supporters who are key to helping him catch hillary clinton in the polls. >> this is just the start of a very tough, detailed negotiation.
7:11 am
i mean, this is no different than any deal. >> reporter: donald trump said thursday his meeting with mexico president pena nieto would eventually result in mexico paying for trump's border wall. >> he said i'm not paying for the wall and i said you're paying for the wall and we will see what happens. >> reporter: the problem is that immediately after wednesday's meeting, trump claimed the payment issue never came up. and, yet, his host emphasized on twitter what he said he told the candidate to his face. mexico would never pay for a wall. >> mexico will pay for the wall. >> reporter: the proposal is central to the immigration plan trump laid out in phoenix on wednesday night, including a stark warning to undocumented u.s. residents. >> anyone who has entered the united states illegally is subject to deportation. >> reporter: trump's tough tone angered hispanic supporters. >> we heard a populace
7:12 am
propaganda con artist and i'm done with with it. >> not only did he double down on his proposals but i think they are worse. >> reporter: sever members of his council took a cue to quit. one record to the republican national committee that trump's council is a scam formed simply for optics. now in two separate interviews yesterday, donald trump said, this immigration plan is a softening of his original stance. and the crowd in phoenix, on wednesday night, was so boisterous, they may have misunderstood him. still, what trump actually intends to do remains unclear. josh? >> dean, thank you. hillary clinton will have at least one more distraction before election day dating from her time as secretary of state. the associated press is reporting the state department plans now to release all of her detailed planning schedules from then by mid october. the schedules may answer questions about the clinton
7:13 am
foundation's access to the department. the campaign announced yesterday that 37 clinton fund-raisers in august helped bring in about $143 million for the campaign and the democratic party. the campaign has more than $68 million in cash on hand for the final stage of the race. polls show the race got tighter last month as clinton held just 19 campaign events compared to 42 for donald trump. clinton is now promising to bring reporters on her campaign plane, something she has not done before. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is here. >> good morning. >> let's start with the "usa today" supporters say candidates are more motivate by fear of the other candidate than excitement about the person they are supporting. >> that's right. >> once again, a reminder this may be a referendum election? >> absolutely. 80% of trump voters are voting for him because they are scared of clinton and 62% are voting for her because they are scared of trump' why it's depressing
7:14 am
for some people. it's a referendum how bad the other person are and this is a election people are not motivated by. they are motivated by the fear of the alternative and what that means actually is not only is it going to be potentially continually a depressing election but how do you build a mandate for governing? whoever wins there will be a sourness to the victory and that is something you have to deal with when you get in office. >> problems for the members of the hispanic advisory counsel pill inspect its own candidate position with regard to immigration words like con artist and scam, never good for a nominee. and w"the washington post" has story how trump got from point a to point a on immigration. it seems everybody, including the nominee, is a bit confused here. >> it's weird to be confused on this signature issue this late in the campaign. usually in this part of the campaign, a candidate is reaching out to new groups and talking about other issues. he had the immigration thing pretty much down in terms of his
7:15 am
core constituency. was he taking the rough edges off of it as a pitch to republican voters who found him too risky and too volatile. that has been muddled. it has been budgeded a little. he had this show event in mexico which was also aimed at those voters which got some great reviews as a pure act of theater. no substance to it. but then that has been a little bit overtaken by the difficulty and confusion and the reiteration of his harder positions. >> john, "the new york times" is actually reporting that trump's campaign is planning pretty heavy for his visit to an african-american church tomorrow in detroit. they are also talking about scripting answers to questions and they have been submitted in advance. >> the old donald trump said if you use a teleprompter that qualifies you for the presidency and meant you have no thoughts of your own. now they are scripting not just
7:16 am
the questions but the answers for this event. this is part of the new strategy to show he is a different candidate than the one that is frightening that group of republican voters and people think the key hurdle for donald trump can he inhabit the office? does he have the judgment and temperament to inhabit the office? the show events are meant to show that he can kind of behave more like a normal candidate. >> but is it genuine? >> you mean the outreach, itself? >> yes. >> well, i think they would like to get the voters in the african-american community, but i think that is not the only audience. the audience is these republicans who worry about him and it's a larger part of the electorate and trying to, again, make the notion he is kind of a traditional candidate. they are trying to make him look normal because what he is -- the old donald trump has a limited constituency. >> john dickerson, thank you. we look forward to seeing you on the late show with stephen colbert tonight and sunday on "face the nation." john speaks with new jersey governor chris christie and arizona senator jeff flake. that is sunday morning here on "face the nation."
