3:04 pm
potential for very high tides and what that could mean, coastal flooding. here in plymouth there are a number of roads that were flooded and shut down either preemptively because of the flooding, and the pilgrim sands hotel really getting pelted by the waves early this morning. another community that often experiences coastal flooding during a storm like this, they had gushing water right into some of those neighborhoods. some of the people, those homeowners that live so close to the ocean are already concerned about tonight's high tide. >> we got some sandbags, we elevated things in our basement, but this is one of the worst storms i've seen so far. it has -- as next tide comes in, just seeing the first one, just devastating. i can only imagine what tonight's is going to be like. >> reporter: throughout the day there have been about 100,000 people without power pretty consistently, lights coming on and off in various communities. plymouth hit hard, about 18% of the people in this community are without power, and all the way

3:08 pm
could be higher. it's difficult to confirm. but right now here in central and eastern long island, we're looking at anywhere from a foot and a half to two feet of snow so far throughout this big nor'easter. now here's the good news, as molly said, it's going to be moving quickly, it's moving out towards the northern atlantic. it clears out overnight. tomorrow, on sunday, not only can we get cleanup, but family and friends can get back out and play in this snow. tonight though you want to stay inside. temperatures here in shirley still the feels-like temperature when you come wine the wind, we're at -1 right now. so still quite cold. jon: way too dry for making snowmen. not right now anyway -- enter can't even do a snowball fight, jon.

3:11 pm
city economy. is this going to hurt ya? >> not necessarily. i mean, you know, we had some restaurants close which, you know, atlantic city is known for its restaurants. our casinos never close. they only closed during the hurricane sandy or if it was a state budget shutdown, and i'm sure they're happy a because no one is, you know, leaving their property at this time. but, you know, i want to give a big kudos to our fine men and women many our public works department and our contractors. they've done a magnificent job clearing the streets. and also to the good people of atlantic city who adhered to removing their vehicles from the street, making the job easier. also would like to thank our great governor, phil murphy, who i spoke with several times today. the state had their resources at the ready, but we've done such a great job locally, we don't need them right now. our crews are home right now taking a break, but they'll be at 6:00 in the morning.

jon: south korea's military says north korea has test fired yet another projectile. this is north korea's seventh launch this month, more than all of last year. on friday north korea confirmed it launched four missiles in the past week including two long-range cruise missiles. stay with fox news channel for the latest developments on this story. we've been watching that potentially historic nor'easter as it batters the east coast. just over 8 million people under winter storm warnings and another 8 million under blizzard warnings now.
3:49 pm
foxwet's katie byrne is live in new worth, rhode island. katie. >> reporter: hi, jon, good evening. well, it's official, we did get a blizzard here in newport, and so so did at least three other places in rhode island. for now you can tell the snow has subsided, but the winds are still pretty strong. gusts in the 30s and 40s, and i guess we picked a good spot because it looks like newport had the highest gust of the day, 70 miles per hour. we've been along the narragansett bay watching waves crash over the wall here, and it's been rocky like this since the morning. of course, at times that snow was coming down several inches an hour, so it caused some whiteout conditions because you had the winds picking up, blowing it around and then, of course, causing that snow to look horizontal at times. we know that in narragansett which is just about 25 minutes away from where we are, they actually had to pull their plow
3:50 pm
trucks off the roads because of it. here in newport, they didn't, and they've been at it since 4:30 in the morning, and they've been telling people to stay home off the roads and not walk around because they're dealing with low visibility which means that sometimes they're not even able to see people walking around. this is just an example now, you look here with me live just as we started this live shot, this plow truck driver, unfortunately, got stuck. and i've been hearing reports of this all over the state. and he's currently digging out because that's what the conditions are like. so this is happening to plow truck drivers, you can bet it's going to happen to anyone if who would be on those roads. hopefully, people are sticking to the guidance of the governor who has a travel ban in place for all of rhode island roadways and a tractor travel ban in place through midnight. he actually extended that this afternoon. jon? jon: all right. fox weather's katie byrne in newport, rhode island. katie, thanks. the white house press secretary, jen psaki, defending the administration's immigration
3:51 pm
policies, this after a fox obtained video of migrants arriving at an airport north of new york city last august. and this week fox cameras caught an apparent mass if relocation of migrants in texas. one immigration and customs enforcement source accusing the d. of becoming a, quote -- department of becoming a, quote, unofficial travel agency for if illegal immigrants and criminals. let's bring in fox news contributor and columnist for "the hill," joe concha. joe, as you know, i'm a private pilot. it's been kind of an open secret in the pilot community for a while that the department of homeland security is flying these charter jets, always at night, they always land in the middle of the night, to not really wig airports -- big airports. allentown, bethlehem, pennsylvania, is one, westchester county north of new york city, has seen some as well. migrants going all over the country in the dead of night. if the administration is, wants
3:52 pm
to be open about it, why not do it in broad daylight? >> why not do it at major airports, to your point as well, right? if you're going to al remembertown, you could go to philadelphia, rochester e when you could be going to newark, lagarde laguardia or jfk in new york. it's amazing how few questions outside of peter doocy are asked of this administration in terms of in this policy. why are you flying migrants that came here illegally to states across the country in the middle of the night, ms. psaki or mr. president or ms. vice president who's in charge of the border? you almost never see it during interviews. that's what we have at this point. as long as most of the media isn't covering it, the administration thinks they can get away with it because, well, they're getting away with it, jon. jon: yeah. and, again, the open border policy -- and that's really what it seems to be -- doesn't seem to be drawing any attention at the white house. i mean, the vice president is supposed to be in charge of
3:53 pm
fixing it, but the numbers have only gotten worse. the december numbers allowed, showed more migrants crossing the border than in any december in history. >> amazing. and when you think about the total number in 2021, jon, 2.2 million migrants crossed illegally into this country. all right. how do we put that number into context? that is two and a half times the total population of the president's home state of delaware. it's three times the population of washington, d.c. or boston, massachusetts. that is a lot of people coming here illegally. the administration now, jon, polling in the 20s on its handling of immigration and the border, the 20s, right? and if accountability existed here, mr. mayorkas who is, obviously, the dhs secretary, would be out of a job right now. but as we saw with afghanistan, virtually nobody gets fired or even reprimanded in the administration. so what we're seeing at the border, it's only going to continue as the media remains mostly apathetic about this crisis, jon. jon: we have seen, obviously,
3:54 pm
some very low poll numbers for the biden administration. apparently, they are hoping that the opportunity to replace, to appoint a replacement for supreme court justice stephen breyer is going to help turn those numbers around a. what do you think the prospects are? >> jon, i just don't see this development regarding breyer's retirement as any kind of real game-changer. if clarence thomas, for example, had announced his retirement and was replaced by a liberal judge, that's something far different. but in the end, the court remains primarily 6-3 conservative, so they're simply shooting par here. nothing fundamentally changes in the end. and since president already said he would name a black woman to the bench, there's no wow factor. just like, let's face it, there's no wow factor for kamala harris being the first female vice president and woman of color in that a position because she's currently at, what, 32% approval in "usa today"? so biden's nomination of another justice simply is not the big story many in media are making it out to be when you juxtapose
3:55 pm
that with 40-year-high inflation or murders at a 25-year high or serious unrest overseas, particularly in ukraine. it all dwarfs that right now, jon. jon: we are supposed to be a color blind society, so why make color one of the, one of factors that you incorporate in choosing a supreme court justice? >> you would think then if let's say you're an asian-american, you're an indian-american or just somebody who worked their butt off to get to the point where you should be at least considered for this supreme court position that's opening. i would be pretty upset right now. but in the end, the administration is simply checking off the boxes. in this case, mr. biden holding a promise that he gave to jim clyburn before a debate way back when in to 2020 saying, ye, i absolutely will promise -- yes, i promise i will add a woman of color to the supreme court. this isn't based on merit, it's all based on, i guess, virtue
