tv Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett CNN September 15, 2020 2:00am-2:59am PDT
crises converge. another hurricane, historic wildfires and pandemic all putting the president's strained relationship with science on full display. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world, this is "early start." i'm laura jarrett. >> good morning, everybody. i'm christine romans. tuesday, september 15th. 5 a.m. in new york. seven weeks until the election. two weeks until the very first debate. but the gulf coast right now about to be walloped by the second hurricane in three weeks. hurricane sally rapidly intensifying monday.
mississippi, alabama now facing a direct hit. hurricane warnings stretch from morgan city, louisiana, eastward all the way into florida. sally could bring catastrophic storm surges, flooding, and days of torrential rain. >> as it gains power, the storm is also slowing down that creeping approach meaning sally will stay powerful longer. residents in the hurricane's path are bracing themselves right now. wat water's already rising in parts of mississippi. a new update just in from the national hurricane center. chad myers joining us. what is the latest at this hour? >> latest is the hurricane center brought this down to an 85 mile per hour storm. doesn't mean let your guard down. the storm is using up some of the warm water. it's sitting over the same warm water using it up. there was a flare-up overnight. 85 miles an hour off the coast.
part of the problem is that it isn't moving and that's going to pile up the rainfall totals. 10 to 20 inches of rainfall likely, not just possible, likely in many areas here. the rain is already on, it has been on the florida peninsula, the west coast of florida there all the way through the last couple of hours. very heavy rainfall all the way through the panhandle as well. this storm eventually moves through the north. it's going to take a long time. it may take 24 hours just to get on shore later tonight and into tomorrow morning. hurricane warnings are still posted all the way from florida, alabama, even into parts of almost pensacola there. we see the hurricane warnings moving to the east on every successive run because the storm isn't moving any further west. now it's going to move to the north. it's going to be such a slow trek. by 1 a.m. still in the water. so 20 hours from now this thing still hasn't made landfall by the time we talk about 5, 6,
8:00 tomorrow morning, that's when it does come on shore. then it will pick up speed and move away. the rainfall totals will be tremendous. already seeing three feet now of saltwater surge in some of these areas, bay state lewis, almost to pensacola, shell beach. the rainfall into mobile, pensacola, into biloxi and gulfport. exceptionally heavy, heavy rainfall here. we are going to see that continue for the rest of the day. kind of run things down here. the new hurricane discussion hasn't yet printed. as soon as that discussion prints, i'll probably get back to you maybe about 5:30. >> chad, we'll check in with you soon. thanks so much. certainly a dangerous situation there in the gulf and a dangerous situation here. for the second time in two days president trump holds a packed event indoors. this time it was a latino roundtable in phoenix. chairs were zip tied for fire
safety. it kept folks close together. the only person socially distanced, there was one, the president, himself. he kept away. another crowd is expected at the white house for a signing ceremony between israel and the uae. all of the crowds and yet the president is aware. the president told journalist bob woodward this back in april. >> this thing is a killer if it gets you. if you're the wrong person, you don't have a chance. >> yes. yes. exactly. it's a monster. >> it rips you apart. >> this is a scourge and -- >> it is the plague. >> in private he's calling it the plague there. here's more of what he said in april. >> we're very close to completing a plan to open our country, hopefully even ahead of schedule. we have to get our sports back. i'm tired of watching baseball games that are 14 years old. i think you're going to see quite a few states start
opening. their life was taken away from them. >> five months later the life isn't back to normal because the u.s. did not do what it needed to do. at the time 42,000 americans were dead and any day now the u.s. death toll will hit 200,000. nearly 550,000 children in the u.s. have been diagnosed with covid-19 since the beginning of this pandemic with a 15% increase in cases in just the last two weeks, yet some young adults are not getting the message. multiple michigan state sororities and fraternities have been ordered to quarantine amid a coronavirus spike tied to the students. university of arizona also asking students to quarantine for two weeks to slow the spread. the university of wisconsin lacrosse and northern illinois university are both switching from in person learning to all remote classes and some high schools in new york and massachusetts now delaying
reopening because some students decided to party before school starts. regional officials are pleading for young people and old to get flu shots. >> this year we are preparing for the possibility of a twindemic, a severe flu season and resurgence of covid-19 which could strain health carey sources. >> so cases are rising in 9 states. some states are still getting push back. a federal judge ruling several restrictions on large gatherings ordered by a governor, the restrictions were unconstitutional. good news, hospitalizations are under 30,000 for the first time since june. a battle over basic science as the president visits california in the midst of devastating unprecedented wildfires. at least three dozen are dead in
three states and more are missing. in california alone over 16,000 firefighters battling 28 major wildfires. 4200 buildings reduced to ashes there. a thick blanket of red and orange smoke is choking the west coast. president trump confronted head on with basic climate science and shrugging it off. >> if we ignore that science and sort of put our head in the sand and think it's all about vegetation management, we're not going to succeed together protecting californians. >> it will start getting cooler, you just watch. >> i wish science agreed with you. >> i don't think science knows, actually. >> science does know. a warming climate has caused droughts, drying the land, allowing fires to accelerate. california fires directing climate change directly into the presidential campaign. >> give a climate arsonist four more years in the white house,
why would anyone be surprised if we have more america ablaze. give a climate denier four more years in the white house, why would anyone be surprised if more of america is underwater. >> three major cities, portland, seattle, san francisco have the worst air quality of any big cities in the world, and that smoke has blown thousands of miles to the east reaching parts of the midwest, canada, and even upstate new york. dan simon is on the ground for us in california. >> reporter: laura, christine, we are just in front of this police checkpoint. just beyond those cones no one is allowed to go farther. so much destruction. downed power lines. unsafe for people to go through that area. you can also see that fuel tanker behind me, they're helping out the fire engines in the area, the firefighters who need more fuel to keep doing their jobs. in the meantime, no question people around the country have seen these horrific and
disturbing images of fire destruction. i have to tell you, no place has been hit any harder than the small town of barre creek. even the town's fire station was destroyed. this fire came in so fast that the firefighters, all volunteer fire department, they couldn't get to the fire station to get the equipment out. most of the firefighters themselves lost their homes. the school is destroyed, most of the homes in that area is destroyed. i happened to run into a couple of county board of supervisors who explained the situation. take a look. >> we're not in control. we are not in control of the fire. i think we're going to see more and more climate events like this. this isn't going to get better, this is going to be worse. there will be effects from this fire such as runoff and topsoil that goes into our waterwaste a -- waterways. >> reporter: this is the area
that went through the campfire with 14,000 homes lost, 85 people died in that fire. the town of paradise was leveled and they're just in the early stages of rebuilding there, so that gives you a sense in terms of the long road ahead for the town of barry creek. >> dan simon, thank you so much. it's a miracle they survived. two deputies making steady progress after an ambush in california. we have new video showing how one officer helped save the other. you're clearly someone who takes care of yourself. so when it comes to screening for colon cancer, don't wait. because when caught early, it's more treatable. i'm cologuard. i'm noninvasive and detect altered dna in your stool to find 92% of colon cancers even in early stages. tell me more. it's for people 45 plus at average risk for colon cancer, not high risk. false positive and negative results may occur.

national security issue and demand it be bought by a u.s. company. they said this would resolve the concern. president trump said it would ban tiktok in the u.s. unless it was sold to a u.s. company. it doesn't look like an outright sale. there are questions about trump's political relationship with oracle's top executives. larry ellison has vocally supported president trump and the ceo has given more than $100,000 to president trump's campaign. breaking news, chad wolf is likely serving unlawfully as acting homeland security. the last acting secretary was appointed without following the agency's order of succession, meaning he could not appoint wolf in his place. the judge is temporarily barring the white house from enforcing you in asylum restrictions under wolf since he's there unlawfully. we may hear what he has to say
about this on thursday. he has a subpoena over allegations he urged dhs officials to alter intelligence. this morning a manhunt is intensifying for the gunman who ambushed two los angeles sheriff deputies in compton. officials say the officers are in critical but stable condition at the hospital. they have a long road to recovery. this may be difficult to watch. new video shows the bloodied officers in the moment after the attack. the female officer helping save the life of her partner applying a tourniquet around his bloody arm as they crouch and take cover. now the reward for information leading to the shooter's arrest is now up to $175,000. and the l.a. county sheriff has issued a challenge for laker superstar lebron james. >> i want you to match that and double that reward because i know you care about law
enforcement. you expressed a very interesting statement about your perspective on race relations and on officer-involved shootings and the impact it has on the african-american community and i appreciate that but, likewise, we need to appreciate the respect for life goes across professions, across races, creed. >> james has been one of the most vocal athletes to speak out on social issues and condemn police misconduct. he missed his first four kicks on monday night football. could the titans kicker redeem himself with a game on the line? find out next.

all right. 22 minutes past the hour. the first player to neil alongside colin kaepernick says the nfl's social justice campaign is diabolical and half-hearted at best. carolyn manno has more on this morning's bleacher report. hey, carolyn. >> reporter: free agent safety eric reid calling out the nfl and roger goodell for using images of colin kaepernick in a video campaign that's designed to promote unity. he feels it's hypocritical. it's a video of alicia keys singing "lift every voice." this video was shown before all of the games during week one and in a pair of tweets reed says goodell has not called colin kaepernick to apologize for how he was treated. goodell has said he was wrong
for not listening back in 2016 and that he supports player's protests. goodell uses video courageously kneeling to legitimize their pr while perpetuating systemic oppression by continuing to rob colin of his career. it is diabolical. pittsburgh steelers stood together before monday night's game against new york giants. players held a banner reading steelers against racism. ben roethlisberger made a return. big ben threw three touchdown passes for the 50th time in his career. that is a new franchise record. pittsburgh winning by 10. in the late game kicker stephen gostkowski went from 0 to hero. he missed not one, not two, but three field goals against the broncos and missed an extra
point. gostkowski never missed three field goals in a game during his 14 seasons in new england when he won three super bowl rings. he made one kick that mattered the most, 25 yard field goal 17 seconds left to give tennessee a 2-point victory. that is all that matters. the as and mariners played a doubleheader despite the extremely poor air quality. the air index at an unhealthy level and hazardous level. jesus lizardo did not mince words when asked about the conditions that degraded over the night. >> i'm a healthy 22-year-old. i shouldn't be, you know, gasping for air, i guess you should say, or missing oxygen when i'm, you know, kind of getting to the line. that's -- i'll leave it at that. >> laura, major league baseball hasn't established an index of its own where the air quality
would be unhealthy to play. they deferred to local health officials say the level it was at on monday night surpasses an acceptable level. >> you can see how thick it was. thank you for the reporting. still ahead, another hurricane on final approach to the gulf. up to 20 inches of rain expected across several states now. the storm moving so slowly you could walk faster. it's one of three crises facing the country and the president is denying basic science.

slowing down that creeping approa approach. it means sally remains a threat for a longer period of time. residents in the hurricane's path are bracing themselves. water's already rising in parts of mississippi. meteorologist chad myers joins us live this morning from the cnn weather center. if i know anything about hurricanes from listening to you, sir, it is when they are slow like that over the warm waters of the gulf, it means a lot of rain and misery from people who live there. >> and it means wind from the same direction for a very long time. it's like taking that cup of coffey you're probably holding and blowing over the top to cool it off, and the waves go to the opposite side of the cup. well, the waves are going to the opposite side of the gulf coast. so wave after wave after wave building that surge. we're now over three feet of surge in some spots. shell beach which is st. bernard parish, way off to the east side, 4 1/2 feet higher than you should be at this hour because of that just incessant -- it
just will not stop wind from the same direction. now the storm was 100 miles per hour yesterday, at least briefly. now it's an 85 mile per hour storm but it's moving at 2 miles per hour. before the break i heard you say you could walk faster. yes, you can. even my pace i can walk probably three miles per hour. this thing is doing two. that's doing a couple of things. that's putting down just unbelievable amounts of rain in florida. it will move to mississippi, alabama as well. it will push surge into mobile bay. it will cool down the water a bit. it will cool down the gulf of mexico and that will lower the intensity or lower the threat of any more intensification with this storm. so that is some good news. when you use up the heat, all of a sudden the gulf is cooler so the storm doesn't have the potential, putting regular gas rather than premium gas. there's the rainfall moving up and it has been in the same
spots for hours and hours and hours. this doesn't even come on shore until after midnight tonight. maybe not even until 6:00 tomorrow morning. so a full 24 hours from where we are now moving at 2 or 3 miles per hour, so what you see is what you get. things still get higher and higher when it comes to that surge. eventually the rain gets all the way through the carolinas. could be 4 to 6 inches of rainfall. this is just one model. we are seeing down here across the gulf coast. the purple, 10 inches or more in most of these locations. here's a spot with 20. it's off shore. certainly 20 inches of rainfall probably not out of the realm of possibilities. this is called fresh water flooding because it's rain, not the saltwater surge that we oftentimes see when you get a landfalling hurricane. the surge is going to be 6 to 9 feet. maybe some spots higher because of the long-term wind going in the exact same direction for a very long time. this is going to be a storm, not
a cat 3, but it's going to have its own set of problems because of all of the water coming down here now. >> we know you'll be very busy following it for us. >> i will. >> we'll watch it for the next 24/48 hours. thank you, chad. laura? >> for the second time in two days, president trump holds a packed event indoors. this time it was a latino roundtable in phoenix. chairs were zip tied together for fire safety but not a safe distance for a pandemic. who was social distancing? president trump himself. another crowd is expected at the white house for a signing between israel and the uae. all of these crowds and yet the president is aware of how dangerous this virus is. in more newly released recordings, the president told journalist bob woodward this in april. >> this thing is a killer if it gets you. if you're the wrong person, you don't have a chance.
>> yes. >> >> rips you apart. >> this is a scourge. >> it's the plague. >> then in private he was calling it the plague but in public he was saying things like this -- >> we're very close to completing a plan to open our country, hopefully even ahead of schedule. we have to get our sports back. i'm tired of watching baseball games that are 14 years old. i think you're going to see 14 states open. they have cabin fever. they're going to get back. they want their life back. their life was taken away from them. >> we know it's not a binary choice. you're out or home. this is a pandemic caused by a spreading virus. five months later life is not back to normal. at the time 42,000 americans are dead. the u.s. death toll will hit 200,000 any day now. nearly 550,000 children were diagnosed with the virus. yet some young adults are simply
not getting the message or they're ignoring the message. the university of wisconsin lacrosse and northern illinois university are the latest schools to switch from in person to all remote classes. some high schools in new york and massachusetts delaying reopening because some students decided to party before school starts. regional officials are pleading for young people and old to get their flu shots. >> this year we are preparing for the possibility of a twindemic, a severe flu season and a resurgence of covid-19 which could strain health carey sources. >> now there is some good news. hospitalizations are under 30,000 for the first time since june but projections for fall are still bad. now two mainstays of thanksgiving will be side lined. simon properties are keeping the malls closed on thanksgiving and the macy's thanksgiving day
parade will be going on shifting only to a television special. it will forego the 2 1/2 mile route and participants by 75%. the ones there will be socially distanced and wearing face coverings. a battle over basic science as president trump visits california in the midst of devastating, unprecedented wildfires. at least three dozen people are dead in three states and more are missing in this hour. in california alone, 4200 buildings reduced to ashes. a thick blanket of red and orange smoke is choking the west coast. president trump met head on with climate science and he shrugged it off. >> if we ignore that science and put our head in the sand and think it's all about vegetation, we won't protect californians. >> it will start getting cooler, you just watch. >> i wish science would agree with you. >> i don't think science knows,
actually. >> here's the thing, science does know. a warming climate has caused droughts, drying the land and allowing fires to accelerate in intense heat. the california fires injecting climate change directly into the presidential campaign. >> you give a climate arsonist four more years in the white house, why would anyone be surprised if we have more of america ablaze. if you give a climate denier four more years in the white house, why would anyone be surprised when more of america is underwater? >> because of the smoke from the fires, portland, seattle, san francisco have the worst air quality of any big cities in the world. that smoke has blown thousands of miles to the east reaching parts of the midwest, canada, even parts of upstate new york. martin savidge braving the smoke on the ground for us in oregon. >> reporter: christine and laura, we are at a checkpoint
outside of the beachy creek fire. we're in the state of oregon. these checkpoints are designed to make sure those who need to get into the burned out areas get in and those who shouldn't get in don't. this fire was particularly bad here. we were trying get into the town of lions and gates but we were stopped at this point. we know both of those communities have suffered greatly. i talked to one man who said he was in gates the night the fire went through. he said only a single block survived the attack. there are 34 fires burning in the state of oregon. the governor admits they are stretched to their absolute max. help is on the way. firefighters from primarily the east are headed out west. that will be good news for the firefighters. many of them have been on the line, 5600 of them, for nearly a week now. there's also good news in the
weather. when you are battling any blaze, that's good news. the winds have died off. however, rains from minnesota could come from winds from a different direction. that could be problematic especially in southern parts of the state of oregon. there's no question this state is beginning to maybe see some improvement on some of the fires, but there is a long, long way to go. the governor says this is the worst she's seen in a generation. christine and laura. >> martin, thank you so much for that. president trump's war on science is also being waged behind the scenes by the -- they just launched a list of sciences without claiming the cdc has
what he calls a resistance unit against president trump. kaputo predicting the president will win re-election and joe biden will not concede leading to widespread political violence. the washington post predicts a long-time climate change denier has been appointed by the trump administration to run the federal agency that gives climate research. he was forced out because of his controversial views on the issue. millions of americans are still out of work. stimulus looks like it's now on hold until possibly after the election. president trump once again tried to rebrand the coronavirus recession as a success. >> we've set all kinds of records and we're setting records and i think next year you're going to have a fantastic year. so we're coming back very, very strong. i call it the super b. >> with his supporters there elbow to elbow the president is cheerleading the shape of the
stock market bounce. but the stock market is not the economy. the coronavirus price. they're guaranteed, hospitalized or die. at the same time, trump's emergency $300 unemployment payments have ended for some as soon as they started. texas, iowa, tennessee, new hampshire, mexico have already exhausted the extra aid. fema said states will be able to provide six months. it has distributed 33 millions. for real americans, not the stock market, real americans, the money is running out. >> forced to now wait intentionally months for any help. >> yes. a big weight lifted from democrats in wisconsin after the state supreme court rules the green party presidential
candidate should be kept off the ballot. democrats have worried howie hawkins could work as a spoiler for joe biden in a tight race there. county clerks can send out mail-in ballots. quick programming note. join joe biden in a special cnn presidential town hall live from pennsylvania with anderson moderating thursday at 3 p.m. only on cnn. ♪ this feeling watch me while i break the ceiling ♪ ♪ yeah i do it right cuz i'm a diamond... ♪ did you know that you can shop online with a virtual consultant? ask about special financing with the diamond credit card. ask about ♪pecihere?nancing nah. ♪ here? nope. ♪ here.

he's got a long road ahead. >> reporter: the germans certainly say he does have a long road ahead, laura. they say his condition has been improving and continues to improve. in fact, he's able to get out of bed for short periods of time. what the germans are saying is they've now completely taken him off of any sort of mechanical ventilation. he doesn't need any help breathing. they're trying to remobilize him as well. at the same time, they say this is going to be a very long process. one of the other things they say is they're not sure whether or not he is going to be able to make a full recovery at all because, of course, of the nature of the chemical. the germans are saying the poisoning was so bad that obviously it's very difficult to come back from all of this. the germans are continuing to demand an investigation and that's causing huge problems between berlin and russians. sergei lavrov was supposed to be here in berlin. he didn't show up. late last night he said he was
going to cancel that visit as germany and other countries are continuing to pressure the russians. less pressure, however, coming from the united states as president trump says he has seen no proof that russia could be behind all of this, guys. >> fred, thanks for staying on top of this. this morning a manhunt is intensifying for a gunman who ambushed two officers in compton. it is a miracle these two survived after being shot multiple times in the head and face. the officers we're told are in critical but stable condition in the hospital. they have a long road to recovery. this shows the bloody officers in the moments just after the attack. the female officer helping save the life of her partner. she's applying a tourniquet around his bloody arm as they crouch and take cover. >> the reward for information leading to the shooter's arrest now up to $175,000. the la county sheriff
unexpectedly putting his focus on lakers superstar lebron james. >> i want you to match that and double that reward because i know you care about law enforcement. you expressed a very, very interesting statement about your perspective on race relations and on officer-involved shootings and the impact that has on the african-american community. i appreciate that. likewise, we need to appreciate the respect for life goes across professions, across races, creed. >> james, of course, has been one of the most vocal athletes to speak out on social issues and condemn police misconduct. cars and trucks pose a serious health threat and the american lung association wants you to drive an electric vehicle. transitioning to all electric vehicles by 2050 would prevent 6300 premature deaths and more than 93,000 asthma attacks each
year. switching to electric vehicles would save the economy $133 billion. one obvious hurdle, it's still a lot easier to gas up than charge up your car. authorities in south dakota are investigating after the state's attorney general struck and killed a pedestrian with his car this past weekend. state officials say jason roesberg initially told authorities he hit a deer on the highway. the victim's body was discovered the next day. they called it a tragic accident and say he is cooperating fully. court records show he had six speeding violations between 2014 and 2018. a connecticut teenager being honored for saving a family. justin gavin was walking down the street when he saw the vehicle drive past in flames. he tells cnn by the time he caught up the car had stopped and his instincts took over. he rushed to save the driver,
