2:02 am
we'll start with the bahamas, obliterated by hurricane dorian. the scope of the devastation finally coming to view. thousands of homes flattened. entirely community eviscerated. the official death toll stands at seven this morning. and that number expected to climb. on grand baham aan estimated 75 -- bahama, an estimated 75% of homes are under water, recovering from this unprecedented storm costing billions. take a look at what used to be the runway at freeport international airport. totally submerged. there's the prime minister of the bahamas describing the enormity of the destruction. >> we have been attacked by a vicious, devastating storm. an enemy that we -- would have had very little defense against such an enemy. and it's caused severe damage to two of our major islands. that is abaco and grand bahama. >> from overhead the scenes
2:03 am
sobering. the photographer who captured these images describes what used to be a viking rant community on the abaco islands. >> it's a lot of homes that you can't tell there were any homes there. just looks like a bunch of building materials were put in a big grinder and just thrown around the ground. it's just completely gone. >> throughout the bahamas, locals are navigating waist-high water, some with their pets in search of dry land. howard armstrong was rescued from the deadly storm surge. his wife did not make it. >> came over the roof. i would imagine 21 feet at least. we were doing all right until the water kept coming up, and all the appliances were going around the house like a washing machine. that's probably -- i got hit with something in there. and my poor little wife got hypothermia, and she was standing on top of the kitchen cabinets until they disintegrated. then i -- i kept with her, and
2:04 am
she just drowned on me. >> reporter: what was the last thing your wife said to you? >> i'm not going -- i think i'm going to die. and i said, no, you're not, and that was it. she took a little mouthful of water, and that was it. >> take a look at these before and after satellite images. before the storm on the left. after on the right. so much of the bahamas now covered by water, leaving tens of thousands of people struggling to survive. patrick oppmann there with more. >> reporter: finally after days of being battered by hurricane dorian, we were able to get out and see other parts of the island. much of this island is still off limits. there are flooded roads, there are roads that are blocked by submerged cars. we did get to one area where a rescue mission is underway by volunteer civilians, people who are just going out in their own personal boats. their own jet skis, trying to
2:05 am
rescue their neighbors, their friends, and each strangers -- even strangers, people they've never met. it was harrowing because hurricane conditions are still battering much jet skis did flip during the rescue attempts. other times they said the water just was too shallow as the tide rose and fell with the hurricane to get to the houses. we saw dozens of people rescued. they were in awful shape. they've spent days now without food or water, some of them hanging on to the roofs. some of them swimming in the water. some of them having seen their relatives carried off by the storm surge. we are hopeful, though, by the sight of a coast guard helicopter that flew over this island late last night, hopefully this morning more rescues will begin. we have been told by some of these volunteer rescuers that they're working around the clock until everybody is safe and sound. >> patrick oppmann.
2:06 am
great reporting there. for more on how you can support nonprofits working to help hurricane dorian victims, please go to cnn.com/impact. hurricane dorian finally moving north, lashing florida's east coast. it could make landfall in the carolinas later this week. a new update just in from the national hurricane center. let's get that for you from chad myers thunderstorm warning myers, good morning. good morning. still offshore by 80 to 100 miles depending on what part of the eye you're looking at. but on-shore winds right now, daytona, new smyrna, up into the crescent beach area. we are going to see the continued pounding of the rain here. all the way up toward cinnamon beach. very heavy rainfall. every time a band comes by, the winds are going to pick up to almost hurricane strength today. this is not as close as the storm will get, though, later on this week. as it goes to the northwest right now and tries to turn to
2:07 am
the northeast, eventually land will get in the way. and that land is south carolina and north carolina. right there, very close. even if it doesn't make official landfall, where the center of the eye hits land, the eye wall will hit land. and the eyewall could have 100 miles per hour winds. and after midnight, finally about 8:00 or almost this time on friday, 48 hours from now, the storm goes by cape hatteras and out to sea. and no more effect. it should not, does not look like it can turn back toward the northeast part of the united states. here's what the radar should look like for the rest of the day. we're going to stop it here, right about 5:00 tomorrow morning. very close to savannah and charleston. charleston forecasting somewhere in the ballpark of a 10.5-foot surge. not total surge, total level. and hugo was 12.5. that tells you only a couple feet below where hugo took the water into charleston. hurricane warnings up into wilmington. that's going to continue for the rest of the day.
2:08 am
the eye doesn't look that impressive right now on the satellite, but it still has a circular eye. we'll keep you up to dacte. the pressure still 964, which indicates a category two to almost three hurricane out there. it is not dying. we are now in the gulf stream. we are in the warm water of the atlantic. and that could keep it going for many, many hours to come. chris mean? >> that is a really important point, chad. thank you so much. more than 7,100 customers in florida are without power this morning. the majority in brevard and indian river counties. let's get more on the current conditions in florida. we have folks up and down the coast and in our weather center. let against now to jensen beach. live there, bringing in derek van dam. hey, derek. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, christine. since we've been here overnight, we have had driving rain, tropical storm-force winds, and a surging intercoastal waterway and atlantic ocean about half a mile behind me. of course, nothing, this is a
2:09 am
far cry from what they've endured the past two days. just 80 miles to my east in the northern bahamas. we are in martin county, the evacuation orders here have essentially been lift, as well as the st. lucie county evacuation orders. we talked to some of the officials at the martin county sheriff center, and they were explaining to us that there hasn't been any significant damage reported across the county. good news, as well. minimal power outages here. but this is a huge sigh of relief here because if you think about the residents, four days ago they were staring down a category-five monster headed directly toward the east coast of florida. they were hoping, praying for the northeast shift. they got it. that means the storm is going to continue to ride the coastline of florida, sparing the state from the worst of hurricane dorian. but now we focus all eyes on the carolinas and into georgia for the coming hours. back to you. >> all right. thank you so much for that. and stay safe this morning. president trump has approved
2:10 am
emergency declarations for both north and south carolina. and new evacuation orders have been issued for residents of both states. crews from oklahoma gas and electric already on their way to north carolina to help out. they've gathered here to say a prayer before leaving. >> charleston international airport in south carolina will close at 3:00 p.m. today. officials telling everyone in the evacuation zones they must leave now. both lanes of i-26 in south carolina have been one way out of town to assist with evacuations. at noon today that ends. why? so emergency crews can come back in, seek shelter at safe locations. some mandatory evacuation orders have been lifted in part of florida that were spared the worst of dorian. there are more than 160 shelters now open across the state. >> reiterating what chad myers said, the eye wall will hit land. listen to the warnings. big business news, manufacturing in the united states down for the first time in three years. all because of the president's trade war. what it means for the economy next.

2:15 am
as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you. . good morning. an alarming signal that the trade war has a lasting bite. america's manufacturing powerhouse stumbled. an important report on factory activity contracting for the first time in three years. the sector the president sought to favor with his tariffs and tough talk is shrinking because of the higher costs of those tariffs in retaliation and slowing global growth.
2:16 am
cnn has more. the signal i think for manufacturing here and from this data yesterday is pretty significant. >> yeah. donald trump has a real problem because as you noted, this is the one area of the economy that he was really touting as helping as he would help. instead, his trade war is definitely hurting based on the data that we got yesterday. now the headline number is interesting because it was the first time of contraction in three years. if you allow me to geek out for a second -- >> please. by all means. >> there are five components to the headline number. four of those kpoecomponents, everything from new orders to production to employment, contracted to various degrees record lows. that means that this is a broad-based signal of a recession headed. and for me this data is even more important than the jobs number that we're going to get on friday because it's what's considered a leading indicator. >> absolutely. >> it tells you what's going to happen as opposed to the jobs data that looks backward as what's already happened.
2:17 am
also, most economists that i spoke to said, look, manufacturing is technically all part of the u.s. economy. but this pullback in manufacturing hiring could spread to other parts of the economy. and ultimately it could impact the backbone of the u.s. economy which is the u.s. consumer. >> it could impact the presidency. now this will certainly ramp up the battle between the fed and the administration. looking for a cut in the next couple of weeks. and this will likely ramp up the battle between the administration and the "wall street journal," writing, quote, reordering global supply chains built over a generation turns out to have far greater economic costs than the trump trade warriors imagined. the political costs may follow. have we seen evidence of those political costs? >> i think we're starting to see some evidence. it's hard to quantify it. but a group of american manufacturers said yesterday they put out a statement after the data came out that said it's clear trump's tactics are, quote/unquote, falling apart. they just said it outright like that. >> right. >> last week a quinnipiac poll
2:18 am
showed for the first time in trump's presidency more people are concerned about the economy that happen they are optimistic. >> he was under water three points. >> absolutely. that was a big deal. the question is what does he do from here. yeah, he could -- you know, flirt with the idea of a tax cut which i've been talking about for months and months. he could strike a deal with china. but let's not forget that when you and -- you talk to ceos all the time. with when you talk to them, they say the damage has been done. the supply chains unraveled. the trust between -- >> repairable. >> >> potentipotentially. he could give a jolt to the stock market. trump can deliver that by doing a tax cut, doing a deal with china. the fabric of the relationship between the u.s. and china has been changed structurally. >> i'm less optimistic that he can get a deal done in the near term. here's why -- when you look at the twitter feed and talk to
2:19 am
people around him, they're saying they want to wait for a democrat. we're not going to have a democrat come into office. he's saying we're not going to have a trade deal. >> we talked to the trade warriors, and they point out numbers like this -- that since the start of the trade war, since june, 2008, when the us -- june, 2018, when the u.s. announced the tax, the stock market is up. not up the 50% the president says it is since his election, but the market is up. you hear this is the perfect time to do this because the u.s. economy is so strong, the american consumer is so strong. that's going to be their defense. >> totally. to be honest, if you look at the way china polls with voters, it's almost more popular to beat up on china than it is to build a wall in mexico. >> sure. >> politically, they know that this is a very important issue. the question is, how much can they gamble with this until it really starts to bite. and to your point, i think they're getting to the point where they can no lodger gamble.
2:20 am
they need to do a deal before the election. >> right. >> and in honesty, the chinese also need to do a deal because it's hurting their economy. one thing is clear, though -- even if we get positive job numbers on friday, even if the president continues to push the fed, recession fears despite the stock market being up are here to stay. >> right. >> we've seen this in the bond market. signaling fears of recession. now we see it in manufacturing data. this conversation is not going away despite the president's best efforts to steer us otherwise. >> not going away, xi jinping. he doesn't have to worry about elections. >> exactly. >> right. >> different calculation on their end. >> multiyear lows yesterday in the ten-year bond. nice to see you this morning. >> thanks for having me. ahead, a critical swing state will have to redraw voting maps and fast. which states gerrymandered lives were ruled unconstitutional. they give us excellent customer otservice, every time.e. our 18 year old was in an accident.

2:36 am
of being battered by hurricane dorian, we were able to get out and see other parts of the islands. much of this island is still off limits. there are flooded roads. there are roads that are blocked by submerged cars. we did get to one area where a rescue mission is underway by volunteer civilians, people who are just going out in their own personal boats, their own jet skis and trying to rescue their neighbors, their friends, and even strangers, people they've never even met. it was pretty harrowing because hurricane conditions are still battering much of the island. several boats and jet skis did flip during the rescue attempts. other times they said the water just was too shallow as the tide rose and fell with the hurricane to get to the houses. we saw dozens of people rescued. they were in awful shape. they've spent days without food or water. some hanging on to the roofs, some of them swimming in the
2:37 am
water, some of them having seen their relatives carried off by the storm surge. we are hopeful, though, by the sight of a coast guard helicopter that flew over this island last night, hopefully this morning more rescues will begin. we have been told by volunteers that we're working around the clock until everybody is safe and sound. >> thank you. hurricane dorian is finally moving north, lashing florida's east coast. could make landfall in the carolinas later this week. let's get the latest on the track from chad myers. good morning. what's the update? >> north/northwest at eight. i think that's the big update. of all the things we have this morning, dave, that is the big number here. we're still going to have winds, 105 around the center. but the center is not on land. we have winds somewhere around 40 to 50 along the coast. i'll show you the latest gusts. there's the eye right there. kind of disintegrated a little bit with some dry air.
2:38 am
if you look at the radar it doesn't look that bad. there's still a big circle there trying to get organized again. why is it trying to get organized? because it's back in warm water. it's back in the gulf stream. this thing truly died as it worked its way across the bahamas because it used up all the warm water there. now that it's moving again, it could actually go get more warm water from the gulf stream and try to regenerate. the forecast is for it to stay exactly the same for a long time. there is the eye right there. it's a very wide eye. there is about 50 miles across here. and daytona picking up lashings this morning. somewhere in the ballpark of 40 to 50 miles per hour. daytona beach, 44, the latest gust. st. augustine at 41. orlando, 28. like the villages, lady lake, leesburg, all picking up gusts to around 35 miles per hour. and that's well inland. 40 or 50 miles inland there as you take a look at that wide arm, the wide arms of the storm as you get those outer bands to come across.
2:39 am
we're going to get the closest pass i think to charleston somewhere between 8:00 and noon tomorrow. and charleston harbor is going to be a problem with flooding. storm surge going to be in the four to seven-foot range. hugo is the benchmark. hugo, the water was up to 12.5 at the harbor. and for this storm, 10.3. so only 2.5 feet, less than hugo which made a direct impact here. so september of 1989, 12.5. more than 1940. certainly more than erma and also matthew. this is going to be a push of water up into that charleston harbor. and then we're going to scrape the coast all the way from charleston right along up to about newburn with the eyewall close to if not on land. heavy rainfall for sure. winds will still be about 90 miles per hour when that happens. this could still be a storm that makes landfall somewhere in the carolinas. the center of the eye has to make landfall, but that's not the worst part.
2:40 am
the worst part is that eyewall itself, the center of the eye is calm. we don't care about that. >> and it's sitting in the jet stream, gathering more heat and potential momentum. >> the gulf stream. >> the gulf stream. thank you, sir that's why he's the meteorologist. for more, we go thrive jensen beach and meteorologist derek van dam. good morning, derek. >> reporter: good morning, christine. you know, we've been here for about eight hours now. and we've endured driving rain, we've had tropical storm-force gusts all night. and also surging ocean, as well. that's the threats going forward as hurricane dorian continues to pull away from martin county. speaking of the county that i'm located in, we managed to talk to the officials from the martin county sheriff center. they told us that little if any damage was reported across the counties, great news. gigantic sigh of relief for the residents here. evacuation orders have been lifted. and this storm is going to pull away, and we know that now we
2:41 am
have to focus our attention on the northeast coast of florida into georgia and the carolinas, going forward, as the storm slowly creeps up the southeastern parts of the united states with its rain and storm surge throughout. >> slowly creeping up and then carolinas up there in its sights. thank you so much for that. president trump has approved emergency declarations for both north and south carolina, and new evacuation orders have been issued for residents of both states. charleston international airport in south carolina will close today at 3:00 p.m. both lanes of i-26 in south carolina have been one way out of town to assist with evacuations. at noon today, that ends. so emergency crews can come in and seek shelter at safe locations. with dorian as a backdrop, join cnn and ten presidential candidates for an unprecedented town hall event on the climate crisis. that's tonight at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. right here on cnn. ahead, could boris johnson's reign as prime minister last
