1:02 am
>> this could be the storm that we have hoped would never come
1:03 am
to our shores. >> the one thing i hear most common after these disasters is if i had only known it would be this bad. and so i think that's my message to them is we're trying to communicate to you that it can be that bad. >> okay. many in florida are heeding those warnings with long lines for water, fuel, sand bags and other supplies. schools and parks are closing and tampa's international airport is set to suspend operations entirely tuesday evening. hospitals meantime are transferring patients and putting up these large barriers to protect them from the potential storm surge. now the nags wall weather center has a storm surge in effect for large swathes of florida. they're bracin g for the storm's.
1:04 am
>> people need to heed the warning and get out now especially where the storm-filled waters surge and affect them. we're not going to have the ability to come out and get them. >> then there are these images from the grand cayman islands and they have the storm surge flooding areas right along the flood line. pedram javaheri is tracking the storm for us. tell us, what is the latest modeling showing and how will it actually track in terms of its impact on florida. across portions of western cuba, 115 miles an hour, storm surge up to 14 feet. that's the early indication of
1:05 am
what the storm has to offer. the guidance of the model tightening up here pushing it closer to land and unfortunately closest to the tampa bay area as early as wednesday night into thursday morning. over the past couple of days we've had some variability. 48 hours prior to landfall, a 15 mile average area for where this could spread. this will strengthen beyond where it is right now from a category 3 up to a category 4, possibly maintain that intensity over a span of 24 hours over to wednesday morning. that track is most concerning. a lot of people kind of think you have to make landfall for this system to make the most impactful imprint across portions of western florida. at this point even a close push with a storm of this magnitude and major hurricane will have significant impact. you've got to look at the coastal region of florida. we know this is forecast to slow down. once it does, the latest models
1:06 am
coming in for rainfall amounts. color contours on the top of the charts around the tampa bay area. both models showing a 20 inch spread of rainfall on or over the next 20 days over florida. there is a storm surge threat with an incoming system of this magnitude, especially when you look at the lay of the land of western florida. the bays, waterways and inlets and how it can pile up. that's a big concern moving forward as well. we're following all of this with a system as it approaches the region of western florida. >> before i let you go, can you tell us exactly why that storm surge will be so dangerous? >> this area very much the most susceptible when it comes to storm surge threats. when you have a category 3 or 4, especially in an area where you have what is known as the continental shelf here, 150 to 200 miles of chef, the depth of this particular shelf about 300
1:07 am
feet in depth there. certainly it's shallow and it allows water to really efficiently pile up. when you have a storm that's essentially sitting over this shelf for a span of two or three days moving gradually, these water ways, tampa bay in particular, the counter clock wise motion will usher more water in. a storm surge threat could push 9 to 10 feet come thursday morning. you've got to look at the numbers here. when it comes to storm surge, about half of all lives lost to tropical systems are not because of the wind speeds, it is because of the storm surges. even if the system remains off shore, the highest wind speeds remain off shore. the water with the system is so close to the land can usher in the most destruction. >> we hope the people of florida are listening and they evacuate if they need to. here's a look at the hurricane from space, right? the international space station
1:08 am
caught the eye of the storm. you see it there. authorities in florida are warning it could be the storm of a lifetime when it arrives. now hurricane ian has also forced nasa to start moving the artemis 1 moon rocket back to its hanger back at kennedy space center to be safe. the slow 4 1/2 mile trek began last night. the move will delay the third launch attempt for at least a few weeks, possibly now until november. but one nasa mission delayed by weather, another, it crushed it. crushed it. in a first of its kind mission. an unmanned nasa spacecraft has slammed into an asteroid all in the name of defending our planet. >> oh, my goodness. 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. >> oh, my gosh. >> oh, wow.
1:09 am
>> individual confirmation. >> all right! >> we got it? >> and we have impact! in the name of planetary defense. >> there were big cheers at the johns hopkins applied physics laboratory where i am now. the place is responsible for building and operating the dart spacecraft. when it successfully hit its target the demorphois asteroid. it had been traveling in space at 14,000 miles per hour, 4 miles per second, for ten months. in the vastness of outer space. this spacecraft was able to successfully hit an asteroid that's about the side of the pyramid of geza. the spacecraft not that big, about the size of a vending
1:10 am
machine. an incredible fete that nasa was able to accomplish just that. the big question, of course, is was nasa able to successfully push that asteroid just a little bit off its current trajectory? the reason that's so important is this asteroid poses no threat to planet earth whatsoever but the reason this is important, if there ever were a potential killer asteroid in the future bound to wipe out all of life on planet earth, this type of technology, this type of maneuver could potentially save all of us, all lives on the planet. and so this was nasa's first ever planetary defense test mission. we know half of it was successful. now we have to wait a few days, perhaps even weeks before we'll know if it was successfully to bump this asteroid off course.
1:11 am
kristin fisher, cnn. we're getting an exclusive look at roger stone's involvement and whereabouts on january 6th. he was followed around by a danish documentary film crew for about three years and they have shared eight minutes of footage with the house select committee investigating the capital insurrection. in one of several clips obtained by cnn hear what stone says about refusing to accept the results of the 2020 election months before the vote even took place. >> what they're assuming is the election will be normal. the election will not be normal. oh, these are the california results? sorry, we're not accepting them. we're challenging them in court. if the electors show up, armed guards will show up. i'm the president, [ bleep ] you. you're not stealing. i'm challenging all of it. >> okay. now cnn's john london interviewed the film makers who shot that. they said roger stone appeared to hide detailed information from them about the stop the
1:12 am
steal rally on january 6th and the planning around it. now the film makers say they did pick up on other clues that led them to believe stone was part of a conspiracy to overturn the election. take a listen. >> this clip was actually from the day before president trump commutes roger stone's sentence and this planning, what this also shows is this, i think, the first small movements towards what became stop the steal in 2020, that we are seeing -- actually seeing roger in the middle of a conspiracy basically. i mean, that's what it is, a conspiracy to overturn an election and roger was in the middle of it. we see, documented how it kind of began this way. >> is it -- he's actually saying that that's what they're going to do in the clip. he actually said it. >> exactly. as we discussed before, he's
1:13 am
saying that's what they're going to do and that's exactly what happened. but it's so outrageous when you hear it that you are prone to just discard it as bravado or exaggerations but when you look back in hindsight, you can see that was actually what all has unfolded. >> in hindsight everything was communicated pretty bluntly. >> now a statement provided by stone's attorney reads i challenge the accuracy and authenticity of these videos and believe they have been manipulated and selectively edited. i also point out that the film makers do not have the legal right to use them. how ironic that kim kardashian and i are subjected to the manipulated videos. certainly they do not prove i had anything do with the events of january 6th. i advocated for lawful congressional and judicial options. in atlanta lawmakers are calling
1:14 am
on donald trump's former chief of staff to testify in the state of georgia. mark meadows was on a phone call between the former president and a georgia state official in january of 2021 in which trump asked that leader to find more votes to put him ahead of joe biden in the election. cnn is also learning new details about text messages meadows had in december of 2020 revealing his direct communications with phil waldron, pro trump operative behind a plan to seize voting machines. the texts shed new light on the extent to which meadows was kept abreast of accessing those machines. we have more now from cnn's sarah murray. >> reporter: waldron hunting for proof told them arizona was the lead domino and complained opponents were using delay
1:15 am
tactics. pathetic, meadows responded. waldron and his attorneys didn't respond to a request for comment nor did an attorney for meadows. >> news of the texts comes as they prepare to meet thursday. it's their last public hearing before the committee releases their final report. to be sure, make sure you are front row center for cnn's special coverage of the committee's hearing including detail, analysis all starting noon eastern wednesday, 5 p.m. in london. still to come for us, we'll look at how u.s. markets might react in the hours ahead after economic uncertainty. japan holds a state funeral fora formerin prime minister shinzo con happen. we'll tell you why. mobilization. the rare criticism coming from a

this morning after choppy trading monday. futures are headed up. when they were closing though, as you see, it was a rough day there. futures, looking healthy for now. u.s. stocks that lower day was over fears of a strong dollar, which is taking a bite out of so many economies now. dow dropped more than 300 points and entered a bear market for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic. think about that. already back to the beginning of the pandemic. the dow has been reacting to bad news from across the atlantic. the british pound hit a record low monday against u.s. dollars amid growing fears of the u.k.'s finances. the bank of england is monitoring markets very slowly. they didn't have an emergency meeting. the euro hit the lowest value against the dollars since 2002.
1:21 am
the congressional budget office says joe biden's effort to cancel up to $20,000 in student loans for low and middle income borrowers could cost as much as $400 billion. mr. biden announced the forgiveness program in august and the white house is expected to release its own estimate in the coming weeks. president biden will host french president emmanuel macron at the white house on december 1st. this will be his first state visit. this is a tradition not seen since the covid-19 pandemic. the events will include a statehouse dinner. now just hours ago japan held a state funeral for shinzo abe in tokyo. he died in july after being shot during a campaign speech. dozens of world leaders were on the guest list of some 4300 people including u.s. vice
1:22 am
president kamala harris. they marched in the speech of tokyo for the use of $12 million to bank roll this memorial. cnn's will ripley has more from taipei. we want to go to tokyo where we're standing by watching all of these events. blake, this was supposed to be a solemn event. it definitely was inside but outside much more contentious. >> reporter: yeah, paula. a little chaotic would be a good way to describe the scene outside of the arena. shinzo abe, of course, a politician who had a unique set of skills to forge close relationships with other foreign leaders which is why 700 foreign dignitaries are here in japan to honor abe's legacy which is now over, has been extremely controversial. we've seen it play out throughout the day as protesters
1:23 am
for and against the state funeral have made their presence felt. of course, inside japan's famous indoor theater, a different scene played out. each guest had a chance to offer flower and video tribute with images of abe was played. the two most recent men to succeed abe as prime minister each delivered a speech. the constant theme from almost everyone who did speak including the current prime minister focused on abe's accomplishments, how much he would be missed. that he had so much more life to live. as a result high ranking officials and world leaders rows were blocked off and a police presence around tokyo has been drastically increased. just around the corner from where i'm standing there are still long lines of people telling us that they've been waiting for hours for a chance
1:24 am
to lay flowers for mourners to pay their respects and say good bye to japan's longest serving prime minister. a large stream of protesters have been marching, chanting getting into altercations with police. things are starting to calm down at this point now that the state funeral has wrapped. paula? >> split screen was quite jarring. protesters inside and the reverence and flowers being presented as everyone took the turn to bow to shinzo abe's widow. will, we'll lean on you. you are now in taiwan. when you look at the relationship of taiwan, china, japan and then this funeral, there is so much more than meets the eye. >> reporter: yeah, you're right. you can really kind of look at what different countries did in terms of their delegations
1:25 am
showing you where relations stand. for example, china, they sent a former technology minister to represent. after sending the vice premiere to the funeral of queen elizabeth. they sent two former legislative speakers, de facto ambassador. they are doing everything they can to show that they appreciate the work that shinzo abe did to deepen the friendship with the self governing area. beijing has made sure that most countries around the world only recognize one china. taiwan is no longer representing china by their view. they believe they're their own entity. they won't go so far to declare independence. that's a red line. taiwan has made friendships with like-minded democracies. japan 100 miles and also the
1:26 am
united states as well who did send their vice president kamala harris. so when you see the fact that taiwan's name is going to be read out in the flower ceremony, the offering of flowers, and they said taiwan, they used the name that taiwan called itself, they didn't use the official title of republic of title, that is pretty significant. it hasn't always been that way for taiwan to be recognized by name. the seating arrangements. taiwan put in a section regions versus countries next to the palestinians. they've had a difficult and controversial relationship with shinzo abe. they were upset with a number of things that happened during his time. the overall view is the relations between china and japan hit a deep freeze and to thaw them out xi jinping did
1:27 am

and welcome back to "cnn newsroom." i'm paula newton. if you are joining us let me bring you right up to date with our top stories at this hour. hurricane ian now a category 3 storm and it's making landfall
1:31 am
right now over western cuba. ian is expected to gain strength before hitting florida. authorities in the u.s. are warning ian will bring a deadly storm surge in addition to the heavy rain, winds and flooding. now evacuation orders have been put in place right across the state and residents are being warned this could be a once in a lifetime storm. now in parts of ukraine separatists are wrapping up what are widely considered sham referenda votes to join russia. according to the ukrainian military has been completely closed for entry and exit. ukraine and western countries like the u.s. have confirmed the russian-backed referenda saying they won't recognize the results. this as russia faces growing opposition at home. the kremlin has acknowledged mistakes have been made and says regional governors are trying to fix the situation.
1:32 am
in fact, an influential russian tv host has criticized calling some of the organizers, quote, idiots. cnn's claire sebastian is joining us now. i want to get to this issue of the staged votes but also the fact that ukraine is pressing on with its counter offensive in those very areas. >> yeah, absolutely, paula. president zelenskyy has said the donetsk region is the priority for ukraine. this is the number one priority for russia. russia has for
1:33 am
there's a polling station in the referendum in the luhansk region, we can't verify that. ukraine is trying to swat the areas. russia is reporting very high levels at the agencies this morning reporting in the donetsk and liuhansk regions. we are getting reports of those regions where entry or exit are blocked facing difficulty according to the ukrainian authorities. so these are not free and fair elections, they are not going to be recognized by russian countries. they're called a success. >> that was a foregone conclusion. claire, we are hearing even for russia, look, we admit this mobilization isn't going
1:34 am
according to plan. >> reporter: yeah, it's not an apology. it's an acknowledgment of the problems in the execution of the mobilization plans, the decree as the kremlin calls it which wanted people only who have military experience, people who served in the reserves and on the battlefield to be called up as part of this 300,000 mobilization that they announced last week. apparently that's not happening. there have been multiple reports of people who aren't eligible being called up. the kremlin acknowledged it, that regional governors are working on this. regional governors are essentially who he's blaming here. that sentiment, that influential talk show host is trying to escape and saying people have evolved, they're idiots. he advised anyone who wanted to blame it on the supreme commanders, he said not to do
1:35 am
that. scapegoating going on here. >> all of that as at this hour there are russian citizens lining up for hours to get out of the country. claire sebastian, thank you for the update. despite tehran's widening and brutal crackdown of antigovernment protests that have stretched into their second week. it began after the death of 22-year-old masa amini who was in the custody of iran's morality police. her family has blamed police brutality. authorities blame she had a heart attack. regardless, public anger has exploded into a large protest. state media report at least 41 people have died in the unrest. cnn cannot independently verify those numbers. the committee to protect journalists say 20 journalists have been committed by iranian

1:37 am
inundate the country that affect 33 million people are still causing unspeakable flooding. the monsoonal rain may be over but the volume of stagnant water is causing a health crisis. one of the worst hit areas. >> i have seen families and children consume the very flood water they are surrounded by. because they don't have access to any other water source. >> reporter: as they reach the shore it's a race against time. the nearest hospital is hours away and her daughter's condition is worsening. these young mothers have found medical care although their newborns barely have the energy to cry. they've come to the hospital where the critically ill are taken to the resuscitation ward. a baby's chest slowly rises and falls as oxygen pumped through a

now access to abortions here in the united states has become increasingly limited after the supreme court overturned the landmark roe versus wade ruling which guaranteed a woman's right to choose. this past week arizona became
1:43 am
the latest state to effectively outlaw almost all abortions after a judge ruled that a ban from 1901 that can be enforced. now ahead of that ruling we got rare access to a clinic that performs abortions in that state and spoke with one of the last women to receive a safe and legal abortion there. >> reporter: at the plant parenthood clinic in tucson, arizona, we meet a 23-year-old patient, a mother of two boys, nine weeks pregnant with the third. >> you could see the head and a little nose. a baby she will never hear. >> what brought me here is an abortion by choice. >> we're calling her jane to protect her by privacy. her last pregnancy almost killed her. >> breathing machine and paperwork signed to decide whether i have to save my life or my son's life.
1:44 am
>> reporter: 2 1/2 months ago. >> nine weeks and all of this pain. >> all of this pain. what if i do and i keep this baby and i lose my life and i can't be there for my other two sons? >> reporter: jane will be among the last women to receive a safe and legal abortion in arizona. the supreme court's decision overturning roe v wade threw state laws into chaos. days after we met jane an arizona judge ruled a 1901 banning abortion with no exception for rape or incest but does consider the life of the mother. >> it is constant fear. it is constant fear. like i said, it feels like you're alone. you're being given only one option by a man who doesn't know half of the struggles that us women go through or the women
1:45 am
that want to have babies and can't or the traumas that we've experienced through our life. it is very, very frightening. >> reporter: the doctor in this clinic is jill gibson, planned parenthood arizona's director. >> have had abortions who have had no training. for them to come into that exam room to make decisions where they have no basis is completely unacceptable. >> reporter: we met gibson at the only fully functioning planned parenthood in tucson. if she performs abortions that don't fall under the state's strict guidelines, she faces prosecution and up to five years in prison. at another clinic in nearby phoenix -- >> reporter: what's happening here now? >> nothing. >> this is kesha calling from planned parenthood. >> reporter: registered nurse now arranges travel to get women out of phoenix to tucson.
1:46 am
>> what i want to do is i can get you funding for your procedure. >> people are furious. people are infuriated so i'm really hoping that the electorate will be able to tap into that collective rage. >> reporter: activists hope that rage exists outside the clinics and will translate at the polls in november, especially among women. >> saying wavering in her support for abortion rights and access. >> i knew the woman was a registered republican. >> reporter: who says she will cross party lines to vote for candidates who support abortion rights. what does that tell you about arizona and especially women? >> even for republicans it's not an issue that just democratic women face. it's an issue that all women face. ♪ ♪ >> reporter: back at the tucson clinic -- >> see this so you can live. >> reporter: antiabortion
1:47 am
activists believe overturning roe will pay off for conservatives. >> as a christian i believe god is pro life, jesus is pro life and every single life has value so i think it's a good thing. >> reporter: for the woman inside today it's so much more complicated than politics. >> would you have wanted this painy? >> if it didn't come with all the complications and everything that it did, probably, yes. i'm feeling more women should take a stand. if we speak up more, maybe our voices will be heard. >> reporter: planned parenthood of arizona has filed a notice of appeal as well as an emergency stay calling the 1901 law unacceptable. while this legal wrangling continues, abortion services have been halted in arizona out of concern that women and doctors could face prison time for abortion services. cnn, los angeles. tiktok could replace a $29 million fine for failing to
