let's go places! ? welcome to "cbs this morning." more than a million americans are being told to evacuate as deadly hurricane matthew barrels towards florida and the southeast. the powerful storm has already devastated part of jamaica, cuba, haiti and the dominican republic. at least 11 people are reported dead. >> matthew weakened slightly overnight as it closed in on the bahamas. it is now a cator hurricane with maximum sustained winds around 125 miles an hour. but the storm is expected to intensify and begin lashing florida tomorrow evening before moving up the coast. omar villafranca is in the bahamas, georgetown, which is in the bull's-eye right now. >> the wind is picking up as matthew is closer to the bahamas. the storm is expected to carve through the islands after leaving parts of haiti and cuba
7:04 am
powerful winds blew out windows in haiti. while torrential rains triggered raging floodwaters. the storm collapsed a bridge in p peego and cutting it off from the rest of the country. throughout the country high water swallowed bridges and flooding neighborhoods with debris. downed power lines knocked out electricity and trees roads making them impassible. people used axes and machetes to try to clear the way. the capital port au prince bulldozers were brought in. people are still in shelters. matthew made a second landfall on the eastern tip of cuba tuesday night. a cuba civil defense official says the failure of a fiberoptic cable has cut off communication
7:05 am
to wait until after the storm passes to evaluate the damage. here in the bahamas, people in nassau boarded up windows and stocked up on supplies tuesday. >> my stomach tells me that this one might be bad. but we live in hope. we trust everything works out for us. >> reporter: the u.s. dispatched approximately 100 military personnel and multiple helicopters to grand caiman island. they are standing by indication the caribbean nation requests help. >> we will be tasked to provide support in the affected area and just do whatever needs to be done in order to stabilize the conditions. >> reporter: matthew is expected to hit this area this evening. if there is any good news is that by that time, the high tide should be going out by the time the storm makes landfall here. but the storm surge and the massive amount of rain are still
7:06 am
>> omar villafranca reporting from the bahamas, thank you. florida residents are lining up for gas and other supplies. mandatory evacuations of some barrier islands start later today. hurricane watches and warnings have been issued along the coast. president obama postponed a campaign stop to the state. he will visit fema headquarters instead. which threatens to put hurricane matthew in its path. there were so many people fueling up at this service station in pembroke pines, florida, last night. >> all we got! >> reporter: a man was directing traffic to the pumps.
7:07 am
thought it would be better. >> reporter: what about this storm in particular made you decide let's get prepared? >> the strength of the winds. and how big it is. >> been through wilma and katrina and pretty much, you know, see what devastation it can cause. so not taking any chances. >> reporter: in addition to buying bottled water and batteries, people in south florida waited in long lines to refill propane gas canisters and loaded up sheets of plywood. >> we have to prepare for a direct hit on that turns and these things turn and has a direct impact we are not going to have a lot of time to evacuate because people are going to wait. >> reporter: states of emergency have been declared across florida, parts of georgia, and north carolina and in all of south carolina.
7:08 am
to join them in staging across the state today. >> thanks. you can see the air is circulating around the massive hurricane. maximum sustained winds are near 125 miles an hour. with gusts. meteorologist lissette gonzalez of wfor is tracking the storm. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. charlie, although matthew has weakened slightly, it is still very large and category three hurricane. still drenching cuba, haiti and now the bahamas and moving to the north at 10, maximum sustained winds 125 miles per hour and restrengthen back into a category four hurricane. we head into friday, it could be just offshore along the east central coast of florida and right up the east coast of florida. as a cat four. saturday and sunday we could see a category two hurricane matthew just offshore of the georgia and
7:09 am
to the northeast. hurricane contain watches and warnings in place. troem warning for dade and hurricane warnings continue for the bahamas, cuba and haiti as well. still a threat for the southeast. really we continue to watch hurricane matthew closely. >> lissette, thank you so much. the only vice presidential debate focused heavily on the presidential candidates. the tone last night was sharp and a little heated. democrat tim kaine pushed republican mike pence to explain took aim at hillary clinton's performance in office. john dickerson, major garrett, and nancy cordes are all at longwood university in farmville, virginia. we begin with nancy and the biggest moments from the debate. good morning, nancy. >> good morning. >> reporter: mike pence was a calm counterpoint to donald trump's debate performance last week. though he stayed calm by refusing to acknowledge some of trump's more shocking pronouncements. tim kaine known as a happy
7:10 am
in the lead some democrats wondered whether he had to go on offense quite so much? even if he did it with a smile. >> i cannot believe that governor pence will defend the insult-driven campaign that donald trump has run. >> clinton's running mate went on offense within the first two minutes. >> you guys love russia. >> heaviy handed broach. >> reporter: repeatedly jumping in and pressing pence trump's most comments. >> when donald trump mexicans are rapists and criminals. >> reporter: pence deflected or denied. >> if donald trump said the things you said he said them in the way you said he said them he still wouldn't have a fraction of the insults that hillary clinton leveled when she said that half of our supporters were a basket of deplorables. >> the very next day, she said i should not have said that.
7:11 am
vain -- >> reporter: the two clashed over foreign policy. kaine using ronald reagan's words to attack the nominee. >> he said the problem with proliferation some fool or maniac could trigger a catastrophic event and i think that is governor pence's running mate is. >> oh, come on! senator! senator! >> there was even beneath you and hillary clinton. that is pretty low. >> reporter: pence slammed clinton's record. >> in the wake of hillary clinton's tenure as secretary of state, architect of the obama administration's foreign policy, we see entire portions of the world, particularly the wide or middle east literally spinning out of control. >> when hillary clinton became secretary of state, saddam hussein was alive and 175,000 troops deployed in the battle tweak he between iraq and
7:12 am
he said. it's smart not to pay for our military and veterans? >> do you take -- >> the last thing i want to -- >> i do. >> joyful republicans were quick to declare that pence had won the debate, while democrats were more subdued saying simply that kaine had done his job and arguing that it's the job of a vp candidate, gayle, to get a little feisty. >> all right. feisty was the word. thank you, nancy. the presidential candidates apparently like what t last night. donald trump tweeted, mike pence won big. we should all be proud. hillary clinton wrote she is lucky to have a partner like tim kaine who stood up for our shared vision tonight instead of trying to deny it. major garrett has a reality check of the debate. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that hillary clinton tweet was a not so subtle attempt to drive a post debate clinton theme namely that mike pence simply does not
7:13 am
sufficient but measured and they believe helpful in the polls. in the end the give and take, well, sometimes facts were among the first casualties. >> donald trump said here is what donald trump said. donald trump believes. >> reporter: throughout tuesday's debate, tim kaine tried to tie milk penke pence o comments like nuclear proliferation. >> more nations should get nuclear weapons. >> he never said that, >> but trump has suggested he would be okay with countries in asia and the middle east becoming nuclear powers even saying it's inevitable. >> it's going to happen any way. only a question of time. >> reporter: kaine overstated his running mate's successes. >> she worked a tough negotiation with nations around the world to eliminate the iranian nuclear weapons program without firing a shot. >> eliminate the iran nuclear weapons? >> absolutely. >> reporter: the nuclear deal
7:14 am
secretary of state john kerry and while it freezes the iranian nuclear weapons program, it leaves much of the country's infrastructure in place. >> so you like the 16 million? >> senator, that is nonsense. >> reporter: on immigration, pence denied that trump called for a deportation force to deal with undocumented u.s. residents. >> senator, we have a deportation forces called immigrations and customs enforcement. >> reporter: during the republican primaries, however, trump did suggest that the need for more a >> you're going to have a deportation force and do it humanely. >> reporter: on entitlements -- >> donald trump wrote a book and he said social security is a ponzi scheme and privatization would be good for all of us. >> reporter: that book came out in 2000 but during this election, trump has vocally opposed such a plan. >> i will do everything in my power not to touch social
7:15 am
about who said what about vladimir putin. kaine accused kaine and trump -- pence said precise lack of white house leadership has made putin a stronger force on the world stage. >> thanks, major. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson joins us from longwood university. good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: yesterday, you slighted the hippocratic oath which says do no harm. did the kaine do harm and did mike pence do harm on content? >> reporter: yes, he was aggressive, wasn't he? at times, it felt like it was -- it was an interruption and occasionally a debate broke out. i think that it depends what your game was. clearly tim kaine's goal going into this was to keep the general election in mind and keep driving the issues of donald trump and what he said and keep those in the forefront.
7:16 am
across as just too much for viewers. mike pence was all the things that donald trump was not in his debate. he was clearly -- he clearly studied and he was unflappable pretty much in the face of all of those interruptions. pence had some of his own but nothing to compete with pence. i think basically, you know, the big challenge for the trump campaign is not the style in the night, but mike pence's disconnect with his own candidate. he didn't rush to his defense when kaine attacked him and pence said things that donald trump didn't say that donald trump did, indeed, did say. >> there were so many times that -- that senator kaine tried to make mike pence defend donald trump and the statements that he has made. but governor pence succeeded in deflecting, rather than being held account for them, right? >> reporter: that's right. he not only deflected, but then went back at hillary clinton. so the question is will the night be judged on what happened
7:17 am
who watched the 90 minutes or the conversation afterwards in which the clinton campaign, no doubt, will bring up all of the instances in which pence and donald trump disagreed and the way they behaved and the difference between what mike pence said donald trump said and what he actually did say. >> performance trump content? >> reporter: right. exactly. and, you know, in debates, performance does content when it's the people at the top of the ticket but when it's the is basically everybody moves back to the general election conversation with four days to go until the next debate. we will probably be through five or six other stories before we have that debate on sunday. >> yeah. gayle said something funny this morning. you said go -- >> we were talking about the interruptions in the morning in the green room. i said it was two cats in a bag and i felt for elaine quijano saying, gentlemen, please, gentlemen, please, to no avail.
7:18 am
he, there were so many interruptions last night! >> tim kaine was no more mr. nice guy. >> the second presidential debate is sunday night, october 9th, 8:00 p.m. eastern/8:00 p.m. central on cbs. attorneys representing the family of shooting victim keith lamont scott say the body in the dash cam videos do not support victim had a weapon. >> the world can now see his last moments. there is nothing we saw that changes our position in this. not aggressive. wasn't doing anything threaten the officers. again, no firearm visible in the footage. >> tomorrow's scheduled funeral for scott has been postponed because of hurricane matthew. federal investigators reportedly estimate a new jersey

7:33 am
university has been plagued by allegations it failed to handle cases of sexual assault committed by its students. one lawsuit called the school a hunting ground for sexual predators. back in may, a scathing report from private law firm pepper hamilton which was hired by baylor to independently review its past treatment of sexual assault, blasted the school's response to reports of sexual violence as wholly inadequate, with an overwhelming majority of cases not even getting a of a football program that was above the rules. but said there were institutional failures at every level. just this week, two women who say they were sexually assaulted while attending baylor joined six others in a lawsuit against the school. jasmine hernandez sued the university in march and she was raped by tevin elliott, a baylor football player, now serving a 20-year sentence.
7:34 am
the university is aware of all of these instances and had the opportunity to do the right thing, yet they choose time and time again to do the wrong thing. >> following its report, pepper hamilton gave baylor more than a hundred recommendations which the school adopted as mandates. the fallout led to the demotion and later resignation of school president ken starr. he is the former special helped transform the baylor bears into a top ten team, was also fired. >> i made some mistakes. there were some bad things that happened under my watch. i was the captain of this ship. the captain of the ship goes down with it. >> joining us now is patty crawford, baylor university's former title 9 coordinator and her attorney. patty, why did you resign? >> i think baylor set me up to fail from the beginning.
7:35 am
and i continued to work very hard and the harder i worked, the more resistance i received from senior leadership. i increased reports by 700% over my time and it became clear that that was not something the university wanted. and in july, i made it clear in writing that i had concerns and that the university was violating title ix and my environment got worse. >> explain what you were charged with doing as the ix representative. >> just to ensure that students were not being discriminated against based on their sex or gender and that includes sexual violence. >> who specifically at the university prevented you from doing your job? >> senior leadership. a group of senior leaders that made sure that they were protecting the brand, i believe, instead of our students. >> pepper hamilton did this independent report and they accused baylor university to have systematically failed victims of sexual assault. you were trying to fix that.
7:36 am
this day? >> yes, i think it does. i filed a complaint to the federal government office of civil rights last week and to human resources and led me to a place on monday i had to make a decision, was i going to remain part of the problem or be part of the problem, or was i going to resign? specifically what are the allegations in that complaint? >> the allegations are that i never had the authority, the resources, or the independence to do the job appropriately which the d education writes in its guidance for title 9 coordinators in universities. >> in august they talked about an interview you gave saying baylor had a good board and you had a good -- with the athletic department. i'm trying to figure out what went wrong and how it changed from august until now? >> there are wonderful board members, there are, and great partners across campus.
7:37 am
with title ix and i was trying to be hopeful that the university was going to listen. and the more i asked and the more i tried, the more resistance i received. i was being retaliated against for fighting against discrimination. >> retall yated how? >> the university making decisions that only title ix coordinator should make based on more protection for the brand rather than protect are our students. >> when yo do anything different? when you look back? >> right. i think i've learned so much about an institution, about trusting people, and i really trusted the university. i was loyal. but it came to a point where i couldn't have integrity with my work and i had -- >> patty -- >> a statement. >> i think is there a specific charge here that you should answer which is that two new women, as you know, are joining
7:38 am
and one of them alleges that in june 2015, while you were the title ix coordinator that your office did not perform an investigation into her allegations of sexual assault. >> right. >> do you feel that you're personally responsible in that case? >> i don't know the case because i think it was a jane doe so i'm not sure. like i said we have had hundreds of reports. i can say that we do everything we can to oblige by what the student wants' usually students don't respond, i don't try to push, because i don't want to trigger them. >> if you are a student at a university and you have been sexually assaulted, what should you do and how should a university properly respond? what is the gold standard? >> i think the gold standard is a university trusting its title ix coordinator to do the right thing. >> every school has a title ix coordinator? >> any university or college
7:39 am
>> baylor said they are surprised about her action she has taken and given the her command for $1 million and her e rights were very troubling. your response to that. >> let me say this. there was a mediation and texas law is quite clear that you cannot comment on what took place at the mediation or what was said at the mediation. >> but they have commented. it's out there she is asking for a million dollars and wants a book and movie deal it w appear. >> a desperate attempt to smear patty. what they have done is violated texas law. believe me, there is nothing i would rather tell you what went on in that mediation because it's in favor of patty but the law says you can't do that and we choose to follow the law unlike baylor university. >> we thank you both. this story to be continued for sure because patty's story is a part of an investigation.

8:03 am
>> my faith informs my life. i try to spend a little time on my knees every day. all for me it begins with cherishing the dignity, the worth, the value of every human life. >> we got to encourage people to support life, of course, we can but why don't you trust women? why doesn't donald trump trust women to make this choice for themselves? >> the society can be judged by how it deals with its most vulnerable. unborn. i believe it with all my heart and i couldn't be more proud to be standing with a pro life candidate in donald trump. >> donald trump recently said we need to do more stop and frisk around the country. that would be a big mistake because it polarizes the relationship between the police and the community. here is what we will do. we will focus on community policing. >> we got to assure the public that we will have a full and complete and transparent investigation whenever there is a loss of life because of police action.

8:05 am
because i want to understand what he was unable to do that hillary clinton was able to do a week ago. >> very reactionary. >> small and condescending. >> trump-like. >> it seemed to me that tim kaine used the same tactics that donald trump used a week ago and it didn't work for trump. >> exactly. why would you use them if it didn't work for trump? >> i think kaine was running for vice president and pence is running for president of the united states. >> who do you think performed better? >> hillary. >> who do we think performed better, donald trump or mike pence? >> mike pence! >> the focus group used dial testing during the debate. the red line shows reaction from voters leaning toward trump. the green line shows clinton leaning voters and the yellow line is totally undecided voters. the higher the line goes up, the more that group liked a particular answer. frank luntz is with us from broadview heights, ohio. outside of cleveland.
8:06 am
>> what the group found was once of pence's best moments that was specifically on the issue when he attacked hillary clinton's basket of deplorable comments. listen. >> she said that half of our supporters were a basket of deplorables. she said they were irredeemable, they were not american. i mean, it's extraordinary. then she had one after another ism on million of americans who believe we can have a stroer america at home and abroad and get this economy moving again and we can end illegal immigration once and for all. >> i'm looking at those lines there, frank. it looks like it played well with just about everybody. >> it was off the charts. voters are saying something very clear which is stop the negativity and stop the personal attacks and give us some substance. there is a certain moment and it was when they asked the question about social security and our voters sitting there said
8:07 am
they were furious frankly at both candidates but much more tim kaine for interrupting the moderator and interrupting themselves. something we found on cbs in the very first presidential debate. if you want to score points with the undecided and uncommitted the first thing you have to do it listen to the question and listen to each other and stop being rude. >> what was -- >> go ahead. >> tim kaine basically followed donald trump's strategy. it did not work for trump in the first debate and it didn't work for tim kaine in this debate. >> are there lessons for donald trump in terms of watching mike pence? >> absolutely. number one, they want to know what you are for, not what you are against. number two, lower the decibel level. you don't need to shout. you have a microphone. by the way, amusing to me you have a microphone but it may not have worked as well for trump in the first debate. number three, they absolutely want to know what you're going to do on day one. so enumerate it.
8:08 am
no generalities anymore. you got to have specifics. >> got it, frank. go back to your dial test. they brought up trump's taxes was brought up ten times during the debate. let's see how that went over with the voters and get your take on the other side. >> the trump organization is octopus with tentacles all over the world and it could only be known if donald trump would release his tax returns. he has refused to do it. >> the lines tell the story, frank, but what did you see? >> what we see they are more upset over hillary clinton's e-mails than trump's tax returns and something i did not know until this group. nobody wants to pay taxes. as long as he didn't break the law and didn't do something that was unethical, taxpayers are fed up with the tax code and they actually did not hold him responsible for that. what they don't like is how employees were treated.
8:09 am
reduce their taxes. the anger is if you didn't pay people that you should have paid is the issue that hillary clinton should have focused on and the same thing with tim kaine. the e-mail issue is going to continue, i think, into the next two debates. >> frank luntz, we thank you. we are excited to answer that cartoonist liza donnelly has officially joined our team. >> thank you. so great to be here. >> we think it's great you are here too. she is our resident cartoonist and sketching the action from our green room. last night she was busy drawing the vice presidential debate and these are some of the cartoons you can see. you can see more by following "cbs this morning" on facebook and instagram. liza in action. >> love that. very good. smart home technology could keep you warm this winter at
