9:00 pm
hello, welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. thanks for joining us. at this hour we are following two big stories in the uk a major blow to the prime minister. after a rebel alliance of lawmakers seize control of the parliament. we'll have that story. we do begin with the very latest on the destructive path of hurricane dorian. the bahamas are known as island of paradise. after hurricane dorian they look like a war zone. the monster storm left absolute carnage in its wake. many areas are under water.
9:01 pm
some communities have been devastated and homes torn to shreds. you can see from the aerial images. flooding is still threatening rescue efforts and the rescuers themselves. every day people using boats and jet sees. putting their leaves at risk to save others. we know as for now at least seven people have been kild. the island are no stranger to hurricanes. dorian is something else. it's the year's most powerful storm and strongest ever to slam the bahamas. the prime minister is asking for international help. >> national airport, abaco. is under water. the runway is flooded and the area around the airport look ts like a lake. harbor suffered i would estimate an excess of 60% damage to the
9:02 pm
homes. the mud as we know has been completely destroyed or decimated. >> as the bahamas struggled. dorian isn't over yet. the hurricane has gotten weaker over the past 24 hours but it's not weak. it's now category 2 picking up speed in size as it lashes the eastern u.s. florida at this hour is seeing fierce winds and rain. along with storm surge. and flooding. coastal georgia is also bracing. and dorian is not expected to make land fall there it could threaten the carolinas later on this week. we are covering this hurricane from all angles. in florida. along with the east coast. i want to hear from the storm path. good to see just talk us through where we are right now. >> good seeing you. this is still a menacing storm system. it doesn't look impressive
9:03 pm
compared to 24 hours ago or36. at a strong category 2 storm. 110 miles per hour wind. it's a tropical storm force wind extend 100 plus miles from the center. 175 miles from the center. impacting coastal areas of florida. force pierce, melbourne or daytona beach. tropical storm force winds. and hurricane force wind not far away. the storm sits 100 miles offshore when you look at the damage left behind, the grand bahamas. from before and after perspective and you see the false color imagery. notice what happens on the areas away from on the northern tip of the island. absolutely submerged with the storm surge that exceeded 20 feet across the region. this storm system has a tremendous amount of storm surge. potential. approaching a densely populated area.
9:04 pm
the radar here see the forecast progression over the next 24 hours. the yellow is indicating tropical storm force winds. we have that along the eastern sea board. the storm system will make land fall somewhere around the car lie nas. around the border of north and south carolina as early as wednesday nite and thursday morning. we're eleven days into tracking this storm. it has gone through multiple fazes. this is the widest scope of the storm. spans over 300 miles across from end to end. pult this in the central portion of the state of texas. it would touch both ends. a far more impactful storm on a broader scale than when it was smaller and compact feature with powerful winds. approaching the carolinas and think again sometime late wednesday into early thursday. potential category 2. approach areas around savannah. charleston and wilmington as it
9:05 pm
makes land fall. the forecast projections hold this is a destructive storm system for the carolinas. hurricane warnings and watches in place. storm surge potential across the carolinas. as high as seven feet. and charleston the river levels across to crest ten or so feet above normal. once you get to ten feet you're a couple feet shy of the record at 12 feet. this will be one for the books sfwl it certainly is huge and slow. making such an impact. thanks so much. we'll check in later. >> cnn crew have been riding out ot storm in one of the hardest hit areas. free port, bahamas. homes, buildings and cars destroyed. as you can see. many areas aren't accessible
9:06 pm
yet. it is amazing his team is on the ground and getting us pictures. take a look. >> jet ski ride. one boat trip at the type. they are safing lives of family and neighbors and complete strangers. they launch from a bridge that is under water. theirs is a dangerous mission. hurricane force winds are still raging here. howard was rescued after his house flooded to the ceiling. his house one of hundreds lost as strong surge swallowed whole neighborhoods. his wife didn't make it. >> it came over the roof. i would imagine 20 feet at least. we were doing all right. until the water kept coming up. and all the appliances were going ariana the house like a washing machine. that's probably i got hit with something. and my poor little wife got
9:07 pm
hypothermia. and she was standing on top of the kitchen cabinet. until they disintegrated and i kept and she just drowned on me. >> i'm so sorry. >> there's no power on the island. no running water. sporadic cell service. the last thing working here is this crew of boaters. all volunteer crew. risking their lives to save lives. dorian fights them every trip they make. >> people are coming. bringing jet skis and boats. they are going to get neighbors. everyone says they know of people. it's hard to navigate. there are no streets. and yet they are doing it. you don't see anybody from the government here. it is all very ad hoc. people coming with what they have. dealing with horrible weather conditions. it's not safe to be on a boat
9:08 pm
right now. yet they say they know there are people out there. people lost lives out there. they brought back at least one body. and say they will not stop until they get everybody. they have hours if not days of work ahead of them. >> while we're there wind flip a jet see. and the rescuers have to halt. there isn't much time left. >> some we had to carry. some kornt make it. some couldn't make it. we found my brother on a tree. he made it safe. we were unable to locate his wife. we hope she's okay. the rescue goes on. we have a lot of people supporting us. we'll have a team. it's very hard. but we should over come. >> you made it. >> dozens have been rescued but many more remain in total desperation. as they spend the third night
9:09 pm
waiting for salvation. >> joining us now from the bahamas is served as press secretary to former bahamas prime minister. thanks so much for joining us. condolences and thoughts with the people of the bahamas. the early pictures are devastating. do you have a sense of how widespread the damage is? >> well, thanks so much for having me. we have been able to see aerial shots of abaco. we have not seen grand bahamas yet. the prime minister along with the leader of the government officials. did an overview with the u.s. coast guard. it's extensive. we're talking about the two of the major island in the bahamas. we have lost the local economy.
9:10 pm
we have lost key products. >> and i suppose most importantly the concern about loss of human life. how many people were lifing on the islands, how concerned are you about their welfare and what sense do we have of the death toll? >> well, the bahamas in the past when dealing with disaster have never been placed in the situation where we have to deal with the rising gas bills. that is a scary for us. we thought was storm was in the past impacting 71,000 individuals. when you combine. we are very concerned with the loss of life. there have been a lot of unconfirmed death. because of social media you have been seeing people indicating that their relatives are
9:11 pm
injured. >> and do we know how research and how recovery efforts are going? is there any sense that a lot of people can be saved now? >> what's happening now is the all clear would have been given. currently there are have been research and rescue by the u.s. coast forward. the navy should be arriving. tonight. about noon. they will be able to provide about 600 meals. searching the search has been done by private citizens and national emergency agency. >> we have seen the images of community members trying to help. what is very telling about a lot of the images are that it's men. healthy young men.
9:12 pm
there's no doubt concern about the vulnerable about elderly. the elderly population. women. children. babies. that must be a huge concern. >> definitely. the bahamas is because most of the facilities the would have been compromised during the storm. the search and rescue effort had to be done. people being air lifted from the island to the copal. it's a very intense. >> we can see how high the water levels are. as we look before you go, how high are water levels and from a percentage point of view. how much of the island is submerged? >> people live in two story
9:13 pm
homes had the lower story filled with water. talking about water height about 20 feet high. and most of the island were -- the important message is there is a desperate need for international assistance. this is a thing the bahamas have never dealt with. it's a national disaster. where we were not prepared for the extent of the tragic. we have in the past dealt with. the government official in my view will be afraid to announce that number. >> sobering conversation. that was the speaking to me from bahamas. thanks to him for that. we'll change for a moment and talk about the uk. it wasn't a good day for the prime minister. alliance of brittic lawmakers voted to take control of the
9:14 pm
parliament to push through a bill blocking a no deal brexit. the prime minister sat 21 members of his party who backed the measure and made good on the threat to seek general election. it won't be that easy. >> 328 votes to 301. a loss by the prime minister on his first vote in parliament by 27 votes. perhaps worst than he expected. he rose immediately to his feet. defended his position and said very clearly that if the legislation is going to be passed, the blocks a no deal brexit on the 31st of october. legislation that would force him to ask for a three month extension to the brexit negotiation. he said his recourse is going to be to call a snap general election. >> the people of the country will have to choose. the leader of the opposition has been begging for an election for
9:15 pm
two years. he has supporters outside calling for election. i don't want an election. if the votes tomorrow to stop negotiation and compel a pointless delay to brexit. that would be the only way to resolve this and i can confirm we are tonight tabling. >> of course the to call a snap general election the prime minister needs to support the opposition. the leader of the opposition made it clear. first past the legislation demanding the extension to brexit. negotiations then consider having a general election. >> if the prime minister has the confidence in the brexit policy. when he has one. he can put forward. put it before the people in a public vote. >> and so, he wants to table a
9:16 pm
motion for a general election. fine, get the bill threw first in order to prevent an order to take a no deal off the table! >> that was a position amplified and felt by the scottish national party. 34 right now powerful force in parliament. the liberal democrats a growing force in parliament again making that legislation extending the brexit talks. making that the priority before going for an election. and it is not clear at this stage when the prime minister will get to table the motion to call for a general election. because right now parliament priority is the legislation forcing the extension. unusual and uncertain times. >> the next few hours are going to be crucial. you're watching cnn.
9:17 pm
after the break back to the hurricane. parts of the bahamas are obliterated. the storm now has set sights on the u.s. coast. we have the latest from florida. that is just ahead. also the u.s. president's golf game during storm preparation. noted. how donald trump is firing back. ! hey. this is amazing. with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis, are you okay? even when i was there, i never knew when my symptoms would keep us apart. so i talked to my doctor about humira. i learned humira can help get, and keep uc under control when other medications haven't worked well enough. and it helps people achieve control that lasts. so you can experience few or no symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure.
9:18 pm
before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible.

9:22 pm
strength but it's increased in size and speed. expected to pass by florida and georgia in the coming hours. let's head straight to florida. and standing by with more on all of this. good to see you. tell us where you are. what you're seeing and what kind of conditions you're experiencing. >> good day, robin. we have seen it all today. we have had driving rain, tropical storm force winds. we have seen treacherous waves. i'm located on the intercoastal water way. this is between the florida peninsula. the mainland of the united states and the barrier island. a half mile behind me. the ocean and all of hurricane dorian's fury has just sitting offshore. unsettling thought as well. as you can imagine. we did a recognizance. we came here earlier in the day. the waves here were treacherous.
9:23 pm
we saw a lot of curious onlookers. people who didn't heed evacuation warnings in place. they decided to come and see what the water was up to. take pictures and i got an opportunity to speak to some of them. there was almost a collective sigh of relief. if you recall three days ago there was a category 4 hurricane aimed right at this location. now with know the hurricane is scraping by. still a lot of impact for the coast communities. but good news evacuation order are lifting. they have been lifted in the county to the south. we have the evacuation orders in port st. lucy. tomorrow morning at 6:00 a.m. people can return home. we know that we have a long night ahead of us with the tropical storm force winds as they come through. and as you said earlier, as this storm decreases you can see people here trying to take
9:24 pm
advantage of the dry moment. in between the rain bands. as you said earlier, this storm is decreasing in strength by growing in size. the threats of hurricane here still exist. as it continues to move along the shoreline. >> thanks for that. joining me the mayor. on the phone. thanks for joining us. give us sense of what the conditions are now. where you are. and what you expect. >> we're starting to see winds here. it's gusty. the tides are getting high. we have created impact sights. and this isn't our first rodeo. this is my second term and fourth major storm. we're getting good at this. >> i want to bring up for the viewers google maps. they can see the sort of where
9:25 pm
you are. and right on the florida georgia line. the river is close by. a lot of low lying areas. and that's the concern. isn't it? >> yeah. we're a barrier island. we're not connected to the mainland. we're connected by two bridges. we contend with the ocean and a river around the corner from the. the beach front is on the ocean side. and we're about as far as west as you can get on the east coastline. which creates problems. we're a cove. the other problem with that is when these come in they come in a direct -- they veer off. everybody assumes it will do the turn and they're safe. once we take that direct hit, it's going to be bad. the big one will come eventually. >> your retired u.s. navy. any suggestion to folks on how
9:26 pm
to manage this? are they heeding warnings particularly experience of the way the ocean works here. >> we're seeing good response time. with matthew it was hard to get people off. a lot of people were saying i'm born and raised here. my grandparents lived here. we were fine. we hate that word hunker down. when the wind is 40 miles per hour we have to close the bridge by state law. if you're here you're here. after that. the main goal is get people off the island before the bridge closes. unless you have been alive for 200 years you haven't seen the storms we're seeing. this is my second term. they're coming over and over again. my advice is based on my experience and the way the sea temperatures are rising and the way things are changing. we listen to the expers telling us storm tracks will hold true. and we pay attention. unfortunately we're not paying
9:27 pm
enough attention to the long term. the reason the storms are happening. >> you're talking about climate change and we're living through it. the images on the screen. an example of mother nature reacting to global warming. >> i knew when i saw that category 5 coming in. the same way david heading towards mexico beach. look before and after. i zoomed in on the abaco. i looked at that area. i knew it was going to happen. we didn't expect it to sit for so long. i looked at puerto rico for five years. we were stationed there. i know it happens when the storms hit the countries like this. it's always seems to be the people that have the least get hurt the most. we're seeing that now. in the bahamas. >> we certainly are. prayers to them. from around the world. to you and all of the people and your watch. good luck. hope you can see this through
9:28 pm
>> thank you. i appreciate the time. >> if you'd like to help the victims of hurricane dorian, head to our web site. a list of vetted charities and ways to contribute. that's at >> coming up. a shot at donald trump golfs game gets a fierce response. the u.s. president's feud with the london's mayor. every day, visionaries are creating the future. so, every day, we put our latest technology and unrivaled network to work. the united states postal service makes more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country.

welcome back to our viewers in the united states. and around the world.
9:33 pm
great to have you. part rs of the bahamas are facing absolute devastation from hurricane dorian. this storm moved slowly over the island sitting over them. hitting some areas over and over again. you can see look here, the destruction here. obliterated. homes are gone and roads and hospitals. at least seven people killed in the storm isn't over yet. everyone buildings left stranding face a baa ranl of wind and flooding. desperate people braving chest deep waters to reach high ground. saving loved ones and kids. it's devastating. after seeing what dorian has done. u.s. is preparing for the storm. the category 2 hurricane is picking up speed. and size. as it moves north. georgia and florida are seeing wind and rain from the outer edge of dorian right now. dorian is not expected to make land fall there.
9:34 pm
it could threaten the carolinas later on this week. the latest on dorian's track. so, it's after midnight here in the east coast. give us a sense of where it's going and what people can expect in the morning. >> this is slow progression. of course we see changes here in the past 24 hours. it is moving to the north-northwest. around 7 miles per hour. essentially twice the speed of walking pace. of course the last couple days it wasn't moving at all. beyond that walking pace. it is the fastest progression of the storm in about four days. that aspect of the storm is better news. the storm lined up 100 miles away from the coast region of florida. going to begin to see the heavy rainfall begin to move towards the coast also tropical storm force winds and hurricane force winds just offshore. any sort of movement to the west or left you'll have significant impact directly on the coastal communities and we know storm
9:35 pm
surge potential will be extreme. rainfall amounts will be significant and the storm doesn't have much in the way of weakening. at least inside the next few days. the hurricane force wind indicated in red remain offshore. if you're tuned in from savannah or charleston. jacksonville. tropical storm force wind will be felt across the regions. turns tomorrow night into thursday morning. that is the best bet presents itself for land fall potential. from north carolina. a potential for hurricane force winds. myrtle beach and wilmington in and the storms skirts off to the north and east. and impacts potentially cape as well. notice this. staying category 2 in towards tomorrow night and thursday morning. winds expected to remain around 110 miles per hour.
9:36 pm
which is a strong category 2. and beyond that into thursday evening. even then barely weakening. 105 miles per hour wind before it skirts off to the northeast. national hurricane center and local authorities taking this very seriously. hurricane watches and warnings. widespread across the region. of course the area with the high etc. potential for land fall which would be around the carolinas. where the storm surge threat is the highest. around 7 feet at its max. look at this observation forecast into thursday. this is charleston harbor. river potential crest up to ten plus feet. that second highest we have ever seen. go back to hurricane hugo 1989 to have the highest crest at 12 feet. it shows you the wind speeds category doesn't really place a significant role at this stage. it's a broad storm. before it exits to the right and everyone will be impacted by
9:37 pm
the -- >> no one out of the woods yet. thanks so much for that. >> when the u.s. president was criticized for his hurricane response by the london mayor he fired back. twice as hard. he cancelled a weekend trip to poland to monitor the storm and played a round of golf on monday. and florida prepared for the worst. in a tweet the president began by calling incompetent and defended his very inexpensive game and took a shot ot president obama in hawaii. and focus on the city quote knife crime. they have a history of disputes. the muslim ban and london crime rate. >> then the u.s. vice president is under fire for his accommodations in island. pence met with irish leader tuesday. he stayed far away from the city in a hotel owned by president
9:38 pm
trump at the president's urging. the democratic national committee slammed the decision saying it u.s. tax dollars are making the trump family richer. the golf club is on the west coast of ireland and nearly 300 kilometers away from dublin. >> i understand political attacks by democrats. but if you have a chance to get there it's a fairly small place. and the opportunity to stay at trump national there to accommodate the unique footprint that comes with our security detail. and other personnel. made it logical. >> cnn senior political analyst and senior editor for the atlantic. good to see you. mr. pence staying at a trump hotel. is this about ethics, optics or
9:39 pm
both? >> let's see. can we list the previous u.s. leaders to journey to ireland and concluded there was no place that could sustain them and their staff in dublin and had to go away in order to find suitable lodging? it's a short list. a list of zero. and kind of under scores i think the scandal fatigue in some ways that the u.s. faces. so many things happen in the trump presidency. that are simply unimaginable in any previous presidency. there is a kind of a numbing effect on some of the -- this comes right after the president suggested the g 7 be held at his property. there are legitimate issues. it's kind of absurd for the vice president to argue with something approaching a straight face he couldn't find any place suitable any closer that did belong to his boss. >> okay. let's see what happens with that.
9:40 pm
i want to talk about the hurricane. that's been such a focus. the intensity of the hurricane seems baffled the u.s. president. >> i'm not sure i have heard of a category 5. i knew it existed. and i have seen some category 4. category 5 is something that i don't know i have ever heard the term. other than i know it's there. that's the ultimate. that's what we have. >> so the president has repeatedly forgotten how big a storm can get. and in this case, also where it was going. saying alabama was in the path. how confident should american people be that the president is on top of this? even from the links. >> the biggest problem here, you take him at his word and says category 5 existed and now we're dealing with one. what does that point you to? asking why there are now so many of our hurricanes are becoming
9:41 pm
more intense. and the science is clear. it's in the that climate change causes more hurricanes. it's that the hurricanes exist as your previous guest the mayor noted. hurricanes exist reach category 4 and 5 because they are drawing fuel from warmer air and warmer water. that produce more rain and more intense storms. yet the president fundamentally called climate change a hoax. and worked to systemically dismantle every attempt to address climate change. pulling out of the paris treaty. undoing the power plant emission. repealing the autofuel efficiency regulation. and all of the ways trying to promote the fossil fuel industry. i think this is going to be an issue in 2020. the effects of climate change measured by the hurricanes in
9:42 pm
the east and wild fires in the west and drought. and heat waves. are really becoming more unavoidable for more americans. two-thirds of americans saying they believe climate change is happening and driven by hup activity. the human activity. the president is calling it a hoax. >> the fact facing all of these hurricanes or major weather events. as you list. all directly connected to climate change. is this going to become a single issue concern for many vote rs. young voters. and something that will flip -- change people's minds? >> reenforce. i don't believe in single issues. this are a series of issues. environmental, social, abortion. gun rights. gay rights. immigration.
9:43 pm
they all clealong similar lines. younger voters and college educated white voters. who are kind of at the opposite end of the spectrum from trump on all of these questions. and they all kind of reenforce each other. you see the alignment that we have in american politics. he's dependent on blue collar, older, rural and religious white voters. at the price of driving away younger voters. minorties and many white college educated voters who voted republican. in the past. a recoiling from him resisly on these non-economic issues. i think for well elgted voters who numbers on climate change are higher than two third. the president refuses to deal with it but acknowledge it is occurring at all. as the evidence slams us in the face. i do think that is a contributing factor to their alienation from trump and the
9:44 pm

9:48 pm
after devastating the bahamas hurricane dorian is moving at the florida coast and images like this show just what is in store. the outer bands of the storm are bringing heavy rain to many parts of florida. and flooding remains a major concern. now the latest forecast shows dorian staying offshore for now. but possibly making land fall in south carolina. later on this week. only day two of the work for british hp after the summer holiday. the parliament has seen an epic show down.
9:49 pm
britains deadline to leave draws near. a rebel alliance of lawmakers rose up against uk prime minister johnson. and put a stop to a no deal brexit. the mime minister sacked 21 member of his party who backed the measure and made good on the threat to seek a general election. even though he says it's not his first choice. >> cnn went to south of england. residents overwhelmingly voted to leave the eu in the 2016 referendum. she's there to find out what they're saying about brexit and the debate. rite now. take a listen. >> didn't just vote to leave in 2016. and overwhelmingly so. more recently this year a parliament election there was a very strong vote from this area for the brexit party. that's a newly formed party. sentiments has not shifted. speaking to people in town today there's a huge sense of
9:50 pm
