it is wednesday, september 13th, 2017. i just remembered it's my ex-husband's birthday. welcome back to "cbs this morning." i hope he's having a good one. i forgot. florida works hard to turn on power and gas take. we go back. a step-by-step guide how to keep track of your credit after that massic data breach, but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> massive recovery efforts after irma. it's one of the worst power outages in american history. >> restoring power is the biggest challenge.
8:01 am
there are 24,000 linemen working to restore power. >> the homes destroyed. just one example of irma destructed. >> it look like winter. its not a lush tropical island. everything is brown. >> three senate republicans and democrats. on the menu, carving up the tax code. >> now, the new phone has facial recognition, new wiring, and with all that, hefty price tag. is anyone going to get that? >> at some point. >> the benefit last night has so far raised $14 million. we joined in new york. >> i talked to so many people from all over the country who said i wanted to help you. >> were they excite when you said i'm charlie rose. >> no. they said, as you know, can i
8:02 am
speak to oprah? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the death toll during the hurricane is now up to 25 in the united states. 17 of those are in florida. president trump said he will visit the state tomorrow. >> reporter: about 4point 4 billion homes and businesses still do not have power. they're working to restore power at this hour and they're working 16-hour days. officials say many customers will not have power restored for at least ten more days. they report more than 41,000 people are still living in shelters. >> gas shortages also appear to be an issue. port everglades and port tampa bay have reopen.
8:03 am
half in the miami area do not have fuel. 41% of stations in the ft. myers/naples area are dry and in jacksonville, 42% of the stations are empty. adding to that, some of the stations if they have fuel, they don't have electricity, so they can't pump the fuel. >> it's not a good situation. many in the florida keys are back to see what irma left behind. florida's department of transportation inspected dozens of bridges on route 1, the only road in and out. the highway is safe to travel but the keys are still dloes where people evacuated. elaine quijano of cbsn is still inside that closed in area, ramrod key. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, gayle. hurricane irma made landfall here at cudjoe key making it one
8:04 am
of the hardest hit areas in the state of florida. those winds and storm surge caused catastrophic damage. fema estimated about a quarter of the homes in the keys are destroy. 70% of the keys do not have power. there is hardly any cell phone or internet service. the airports in keys are open to emergency flights only which are bringing food and water to people who did not evacuate. we met a woman named simone who rode out the storm. she owns two restaurants in marathon. one is in good shape and she's cooking forward for first responders but the other called dream may be lost because the repairs are too expensive. >> this is a wait-and-see. we don't know. >> will you beback? >> i dome know if i'll be back here or not. way. to be back here. i -- i don't know. i'll support anybody that does come back.
8:05 am
i don't know if this will be mine again. >> why not? >> it may be just undoable. >> reporter: now, we asked simone why she did not evacuate. she said that she knew there was going to be a need for help and that she could provide it. charlie? >> thank you. today president trump will meet with a by partisan group of lawmakers to discuss issues such as health care, daca, and tax reform. this morning the president tweeted, quote, the approval process for the biggest tarks cut and tax reform package in the history of our country will soon begin. move fast, congress. last night he hosted a dinner at the white house to discuss taxes. senator joe manchin was there. he joins us. good morning. >> good morning. >> how was doner? >> it was good. it's always good at the white house.
8:06 am
that was my sit-down dinner. >> with any president? >> this president -- any president. this is the first time i've gone to a personal sit-down dinner. since i've been a senator, this is my first. >> so what that opportunity, what did you hope to achieve and did you achieve it h. >> well, i thought it was a very open dialogue. very open, free throwing. we talkedet a lot of things. infrastructure was very much on the president's mind. we talked about what we could do and should do and what's going on around the world and that was exciting and i think that's going to happen. we're all committed to infrastructure. i said pothole don't have a republican or dem kralt's name on it, they just need to be fixed. that's what we were talking about. then we got into taxes. it was very interesting. i think they're aggressive on this. they want it done. they want it done in a bipartisan way. i thought it was great they reached out to us. i think it ended up in a
8:07 am
conversation on our concerns. the president is adamant this is not a tax cut for the rich. that's exactly what people will portray, but he said it's not going to happen. i can assure you it will be mostly for middle class, the working people. we'll be competitive, dwloeblly competitive. i'm anxious to see the results. i'm wanting no more debt. i have ten beautiful grand babies. >> i'm curious to see how they get it done without no new debt. that's always the sticky widget. the estate tax going to add over $2 billion over the next decade. would the president support that? >> it's hard to eliminate estate taxes or death taxes as we know it. right now it's $5 million, $10 million. could they maintain it and help small businesses and farmers who want to leave it to their
8:08 am
children? that's something we're concerned about. it wasn't like a closed shut down. it wasn't like this is it, this is what you're going to get. the tax rate, whether it be the corporate tax rate, it needs to be globally competitive. we talked about the global average. we talked about everything in depth to say, okay, let's look at this, to see how to make it work. >> i have to say it sounds very promising. you know, the president was unable to repeal obamacare dealing with only republicans. recently he made a deal with democrats to lift the debt ceiling. do you think this is a way to do business with the white house? >> gayle, here's the way we should be doing business in washington. 30 democrats, 30 republicans. we're not going to get the fringe. we're just not going to do that. but we've got to find the middle for the sake of this country. that's what virginians expect from me and that's what i want. >> do you think that this is a
8:09 am
new way of working? i know you say this how it should be. is the way it's going be, do you think? >> let's say he reach out to chuck schumer, nancy pelosi. i think that was a strategic move. a good news. >> tell us what the deal is that can be made. >> on taxes? >> yes. for what? >> well, first of all, tax reform or tax cuts, whatever you want to do, has to be done to where it stimulates the economy, grows the economy. on a global basis, it's competitive. we didn't create the global market, but we've got to compete in it. next of all, we have to add in. next, no more debt. we've got to see a pathway forward to bring ourselves down and get ourselves fiscally responsible and i think that's what that conversation was last night, and what i heard, willing to explore all avenue of this, understanding the democrats
8:10 am
responsible, moderate. some of us conservative democrats who are looking for fiscal responsibility. you know, i've always said this. i'm fiscally responsible and socially compassionate. >> senator, we've got go, but before we go, what was the menu? chicken? beef? fish? >> it was a medallion. >> senator, i hate to pry, but did you have one scoop or two scoops of ice cream. >> let me tell you, the ice cream was so perfectly prepared the ice cream came beside the dessert, gayle, that it looks like an egg. i wondered why i was getting an egg with my dessert. i cut into it. it was beautifully sculpted ice cream. >> the president loves dessert. did he get more than you? >> no, he did not. that is a misnomer. >> you sound like a goodiner guest to me. >> thank you for all the details. >> thank you all.
8:11 am
bye-bye. >> it's important, norah. we wanted to know. >> we thank you, senator. the scope of irma's devastation is startling even first responders. we'll take you in the hospital with a coast guard to

unlocking your phone is amazingly intuitive. you raise it, look at it, and swipe to get started. >> that's the new face i.d. technology. apple introduced three new iphones yesterday. they introduced the highly rated iphone x and updated mo models of the apple tv and watch.
8:17 am
in 2007 steve jobs introduced the first iphone. remember this? >> on an iphone x the thumb swipes up from the bombedge to return the home screen. a finger swipes down from the control center opens. a thumb holds briefly on audio controls. the panel enlarge. siri asks, what can i help you with. >> we were trying to get you steve jobs. at least you got a little preview. it starts at $999. that's like is,000. the iphone 8 and 8 plus are less expensive. senior editor nick thompson joins us. if you like that -- >> he just got off the red aye.
8:18 am
>> let's talk about the iphone x. is it worth a thousand bucks? >> it's worth it if your company will pay for it and if you're okay with the confusing swipe up, swipe down. we're used to the way we did it before. it looks pretty great. >> functionally. >> yes. everything the iphones do, they'll do better. it will take better photographs, much better processing speed and be way better at augmented reality and that's something that's coming. that's one of the biggest changes coming. >> what i want most for my next iphone is a better siri. can we get a better siri? >> we will have a slightly better siri. if that's your biggest concern, go with one of the other models and save money. >> you do it with your finger. now you use your face. it's always the same. >> you know which face to use.
8:19 am
>> my face is always here. do you think this is a good feature? >> i think it is. ideally the tech that's being built there will be built for all kinds of other devices and we'll start using our faces. the real question is can it be spoofed? i do know what your face looks like, i don't know what your fingerprint looks like. apple went to great spoofs to make sure they can't hold it over you while you're sleeping. you have to look into it. it does use depth sensors so you can't fool it with a picture. really smart people figure out how to spoof it. i could 3 h difficult print your head and spoof it. >> what about the wireless charging. >> when the phones come out, they make it harder to charge. this is actually good not only because they introduce wireless charging so you can put it on the table but they made it fit
8:20 am
in with the normal system so the chargers that already exist will be compatible with iphone. that was actually a nice example of apple what justifies the idea that they expressed that this is a new generation. >> so the notion is that these aren't phones you look at. these are phones you look through. that's the a.r. in the next couple of phones you'll look at them differently. they'll say, this is the phone that set us. >> thanks for being here. >> hope they charge longer, p after equifax, data breach can be tricky. jill schlesinger has a st step-by-step guide on how to secure your credit file.

tearing through the keys. it went through the island. carter evans flew with the crew with a first trip to the island and got a look at the damage. he's in clear water, florida. carter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yesterday we flew about 150 miles south with the coast garpd gard to marco island. we spent hours in the air surveying the damage. our pilots were surprised by what they saw, and so were we. >> a lot of stuff down here below us. >> reporter: from 500 feet in the air, the area around marco island looks like a disaster zone. heavy rain turned this neighborhood of mobile homes into a lake. >> oh, yeah. there's some destroyed houses. >> reporter: we surveying the area with members of the coast guard two days after irma made landfall here as a category 3 storm. 135-mile-per-hour winds ripped off roof tiles and siding from homes. >> right here about 1:00, it
8:34 am
looks like these decks on that house collapsed. >> reporter: protective screens around pools completely buckled and the powerful surge destroyed docks, authorities are beginning to allow residents to come back. there is a strict kerr few though. >> residents are being asked to stay inside their homes. >> they're waving. they look all right. >> so emergency crews can access the area. >> scaffolding knocked over on that building there, new construction. >> right there, yep. >> reporter: along the coastline docks and sinking boats dot the main line channels. the coast guard's next job will be helping to clear them out and ensure safe passage. you probably heard about all the communications down in the keys. today they're sending a convoy of 12 trucks. they're going to pack a c 130

airplane with as much water as it can carry and send it to key west. norah? >> the people will be very happy with that. thank you very much. equifax is dealing with the fallout over a data breach. that information includes social security numbers and other private data. the company said on twitter monday it would wave all security fees for the next 30 days. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here with the steps consumers can take. good morning. first, how can you find out in your information has been compromised? >> go to the website equifax equifaxsecurity2017. put in the last digits of your
8:36 am
social skurty and your naum and push a button and it will say whether or not you were affected. you will be automatically placed where you can get protection for one year from equifax. that's not where you stop. please know just those two steps will not protect you going forward. >> what if i have no account with equifax. should i still be worried? >> yes, you should. because if you ever aplayed for credit in any way, shape, or form, this is data out there with equifax, experian, or transunion. >> if you're exposed, what's the next step? >> a free fraud alert, a 90-day process where you're saying toc aket my file, let me know. you do it with one file. you don't have to do all three of them. there's another one called innovis, which you should put on the list. notify one of them.
8:37 am
that will automatically indicate to the others there is now a free fraud alert on your file. again, 90 days only. but what's really important after that, that's step one. step two, you can take a much more draconian measure. that's called a credit freeze. this is incredibly important. this is a way to lock down your file. the reason is anyone who wants to establish credit in your name will be tlaurted in the process. big thing to remember. if you want to get a loan, you'll have it frozen. we have to take an abundance of caution. here we have a credit incident as they call it with 143 million americans. that's more than half of us. you've got a 50-50 shot you've been exposed. you want to be as safe as you
8:38 am
can. the alert, the freeze -- you want to be careful how you manage the information. you don't want to share on social media. go to and get that freeh report. make sure no one is poking around and doing stuff and chen your credit card statements. this information will live in dark web for years to come, so be very careful here. >> it was good information. thank you, jill. >> thank you, jill. first on 2478 we're sharing how you can get a sneak peek at dan brown's new novel. we know those books. in this book he's on the run after learning information that threatens to shatter the foundation of all religion, so we're very excited to announce you can read the prologue and first chapter of "origin" on and dan brown will

8:40 am
8:41 am
8:42 am
8:43 am
sally is a former "washington post" reporter and we're very glad to have her indeed. >> didn't you know the first i come on television i start out with a sore throat and fever. now back to you, hughes. >> look at that. sally quinn. sally quinn made history as the first woman to anchor a "morning news" program in august 1973. after she left cbs quinn returned to a successful print career. hughes said he likes you because you were meaner than a junkyard dog. >> i took that as a compliment.
8:44 am
>> she met her husband ben bradlee. she wrote a book called "magic. ts a memoir that details her marriage and defining moments and shaped her belief. welcome back to cbs. >> thank you. i must say i feel a little queasy. >> ben bradlee was a guy everywoman fell in love with and every man wanted to be, so this is a wonderful sense of a relationship that you tell us all about. but what's interesting about you, i knew about faith. i didn't know about hexes. i didn't know about premonitions. i didn't know about all that other stuff. magic included. >> well, you know, when i started writing this book, it's because i had been an atheist and started a religion website at the "washington post" which already was sort of a weird combination, and i started
8:45 am
studying religion and it became clear to me that all religion is magic, and i had been brought up in the south where, you know, the scottish presbyterian stones and the ghosts, psychic phenomenon, voodoo, was part of it and believing in god and collisions. i bake ecame an atheist when my father took pictures of krakow. this was during world war ii. it became clear to me faith is really all about magic. whatever you believe, nobody knows. my favorite bumper sticker is i don't know and you don't either, and so magic and all of the things that go along with magic
8:46 am
are just another name for whatever faith you might have or whatever religion you might have. i respect they're all just as legitimate as the other, even institutional religions or magic or when you talk about ajolgy or hexes or all of that. there are billions of people all over the world who believe in these things, and we don't -- we respect them if we look at them and their culture, but then you bring it into our culture and it looks very different. >> you grew up in a military family as you messaged. your parents were of scottish descent and presbyterian background. how did you learn voodoo and who did you place hexes on. >> growing up in the south, we had, as i said, the scottish presbyterian but the staff in the house were black christians who went to baptist church, but then they would practice voodoo on the side.
