just moments ago making landfall in cuba. the storm is over the island's western tip as a major category 3 hurricane with a storm surge that had been forecast up to 14 feet. within hours ian will bear down on florida's west coast with high winds, heavy rains. what really has officials worried in florida and urgently calling for mass evacuations is a huge storm surge expected to peak tomorrow. >> tampa bay is pretty shallow and is going to be pushing a phenomenal amount of rain up into our bay. there's really no place for this water to go so the flooding, the surge is going to be monumental. >> while we talk about tampa bay, we really need to focus on the warned area and why the hurricane center is so worried about storm surge is this is some of the most vulnerable
coast line in the united states with high populations. >> meteorologist pedram javaheri is live in the weather center with the latest update. they've published a new outlook a minute and a half ago. what are they saying? >> hurricane warnings across southern florida, southwestern florida. we certainly know this has everything it takes to maintain the intensity but also strengthen beyond what we're seeing. 125 miles per hour which happens to be 5 miles per hour shy of a category 4 hurricane. look at the model that have tightened up as far as the forecast placement of where this storm could be sometime wednesday into thursday. some of the models just off shore by as far as 20, 25 miles an hour from tampa bay. others will take it directly into tampa bay. we'll see how this plays out. about a 48-hour period you're looking about a 15-mile average area spread there with model guidance. it could switch into shore or
just off shore for the next several days. with high confidence what we know is this will evolve to a category 4. we know with the counterclockwise flow, some of these exposed bays, waterways, tampa bay in particular, will take on a significant amount of storm surge. that is the primary threat with incoming tropical systems. five to ten foot storm surge in and around the tampa bay area. we're talking about an area some $30 billion of real estate among the most expensive real estate across anywhere in the state of florida that is going to be at the height, most exposure of this particular storm. notice the models for the american model and european model. want to show you the rainfall amounts. forecast up to 20 plus inches. incredible amounts of rainfall and a lot of this has to be with
just how slow the storm system moves once we get into say wednesday and thursday into tampa bay we go, a storm surge threat possibly as high as 9 feet across this region. really, the worst case scenario. we know as meteorologists will always tell you, it's not the winds that a lot of people get attention to these winds as being the most destructive element of the tropical features. it accounts for about half of all lives lost with tropical systems. that's why it's so important to heed all the caution, proper warnings in advance of this feature. any time you get a storm surge that gets up to magnitude of 9, 10, 11 plus feet, they're going to push water to the top of the first floor of properties on the coast. nowhere in the state of florida do we have as much value in properties, as much exposure to where this storm is forecast to get into on wednesday night with thursday morning with incredible winds, incredible storm surge. slows down to 3, maybe 5 miles
per hour in its forward progression. this could be a multi-day event from wednesday night to friday morning where the system finally moves out of this region before it's all said and done. >> it looks like a lot of trouble on the way for folks around tampa. thank you, pedram. people on florida's west coast have just hours to prepare before the first wave of wind and wave arrives. more from cnn's ryan young. he's in tampa. >> this could be the storm that we've hoped would never come to our shores. >> reporter: up and down the west coast of florida tonight, hurricane preparations underway. it's been a century since the tampa area of south florida has been directly hit by a hurricane and now hurricane ian could change history. >> everyone and i mean everyone in pinellas county will witness some degree of impact from the storm. >> reporter: nearly 170,000 people have been ordered to evacuate.
>> we are looking at the possibility of 10 to 15 foot storm surge. clearly that would be very devastating for our community. >> that's five. >> reporter: residents taking it seriously. >> i wasn't worried yesterday but today you start making your preparations. tie everything down, secure your cars. make sure you've got enough food and water at the house. >> i think we're taking it pretty seriously. up until yesterday we were thinking it was going to hit panama city but now it's real. >> reporter: the tampa area more vulnerable. >> there are a lot of low lying areas compounded with a lot of development so we have a large population that's built up and it's built up in low lying areas. we have a lot of exposure. a lot of risk. >> reporter: the florida national guard has activated
5,000 florida guardsmen as well as 2,000 guardsmen from tennessee, georgia, and north carolina. >> reporter: every official with dire warnings to prepare for the very worst. >> this is going to be a storm like we have not seen in the past. >> reporter: and we talked to residents who waited in line for up to two hours to be able to bag up some of this sand. they are taking this warning very seriously because they want to put these bags around their homes to block that water. in one location they told us they had given out 10,000 bags and that was before 1:00. ryan young, cnn, tampa, florida. in just a few hours, five members of the oath keepers, including leader stewart rhoades, go on trial in d.c. for seditious conspiracy. rhoades called for an army armed civil war was literal and criminal. the trial could reveal new information about coordination surrounding the capitol attack.
it is the first sedition trial in the u.s. in years and comes on the eve of the january 6th committee's public hearing expected to focus on extremism. remarkable footage of another trump ally. roger stone has emerged from the day before the 2020 election where he says in front of a documentary crew that he has no interest in waiting to count actual votes before contesting the election results. listen. >> excellent. [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. >> let's get right to it. >> shoot to kill. see antifa. shoot to kill. >> the clip is one of several that the danish film makers shared with the january 6th committee. another shows stone if the
election results are, quote, up in the air, the key thing to do is to claim victory. the film makers tell cnn the january 6th committee seemed most interested in stone's relationship with the white house and his alleged ties to the oath keepers and the proud boys. 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 computer manipulated videos. the e serpts prove nothing. certainly they do not prove i had anything to do with the events of january 6th. it shows i advocated for lawful congressional and judicial options. join cnn for special
coverage, live tomorrow starts at noon eastern. two words you don't often hear together, successful crash, but cheers all around from nasa's mission control team after it successfully crashed a spacecraft into an asteroid in the first test of planetary defense. >> and we have impact! in the name of planetary defense. >> whew. fantastic. >> we have impact. all right. nasa's dart mission, that's double asteroid redirect test launched ten months ago. the goal was to knock an asteroid off its course. the dart team thrilled with their achievement. >> we've worked on this mission for at least seven years now and it's been a work of over a thousand people that have put their heart and soul into it. so to see it so beautifully
concluded today was just an incredible feeling. >> nasa says it will take a couple of months to determine just how much the asteroid's path was changed. just ahead, the vice president in tokyo. why the japapanese are calling condolence diplomacy. plus, poking the bear. ththe fight against inflatations the e dow back into 2020 territory. what a russian church now says about faith and war.

separatists in russian occupied areas of ukraine are wrapping up referendum votes that have been universally condemned to annex the land. now the ukrainian military said there's no way in or out of kremlin controlled kherson. in nearby zaporizhzhia it's nearly impossible for men aged 18 to 35 to leave. cnn's nick peyton walsh joins me
now live from kramartorsk, ukraine. >> reporter: we're going to see russia capitalize on the turnout. they have received this fake mandate to assimilate the occupied areas. it seems that ukrainian officials are making it clear that the traffic in certainly male refugees in zaporizhzhia and all from kherson appeared to have stopped. there have been concerns since the beginning of the war, i remember being in kherson when it fell, locals, military aged men that they would be drafted into the army. now if these areas become russia, which seems to be highly likely in moscow's view, it's
almost a certainty anyone who hasn't been drafted from ukraine to fight against ukraine. horrifying choices for the individuals. the united states has said it will likely unvam more that these area for what sergei lavrov called formalization of these areas being russian territory. he also said, this is why we are at a pivotal point in the war, that russia will useful protection for the areas that they consider part of russia. this is signaled from moscow that essentially a larger part of their arsenal may be available to them in the event that they expand russian territory. that territory comes under attack. it seems highly likely that kyiv has not changed hands. it appears to volodymyr
zelenskyy, donetsk and ukraine's main goal. intense fighting around here. the neighbors say it's hit. russia's army has failed. it's generating more dissent at home than it is really soldiers for the front line. what is russia left with. the remnants possibly of its air force of which we've seen little so far but also the things it's happy to signal about and that's the nuclear stockpile. horrifying to even imagine that is something the kremlin are considering. u.s. messaging has been clear to reassure allies, to warn of the consequences if that were the case and so we are into a very dangerous week ahead here in the war, possibly the most significant since it began in february. christine. >> president putin is a
dangerous proposition. thank you so much for that. protester flee. in this predominantly muslim area in southwestern russia. residents say they're being targeted for conscription. here a police officer shoots into the air to disperse another group. this is how they're responding to putin's decree. >> reporter: at russia's borders, vladimir putin's come uppance, the life blood of his war in ukraine, military aged men fleeing fears of conscription. >> basically the russian in flow of people has doubled in the course of the last five days or so. we are already basically
fooeling, the two-day wait. they don't need a visa, but even though russia slowing the exodus to a tiny trickle. bribes paid to jump the line before a feared total exit ban removed for september 27th. in three hours we jumped 40 kilometer. >> 30 mile line. but, alas, the 27th scarce me greatly adding the border guard called me a traitor. inside there was a violent turn. at close range a man shooting a recruitment officer. other would-be recruits scatter, run screaming from the room. the officer wounded, taken to
hospital. in dagastan, a mostly muslim region of russia, police fired over protester's heads. anger particularly strong here as many residents feel recruitment falls too heavily on their community. putin's fabled community to read russia's mood appears to be fading. his ono figures alls admitting mistakes will be made. officials overstepping to take such liberties is unacceptable. and in my opinion the harsh reaction we are seeing is deserved. nic robertson, cnn, london. the head of the russian
orthodox church says russian soldiers who die fighting in the war against ukraine will be cleansed of all their sins. cnn's claire sebastian. this church leader very close ties to the state and vladimir putin? >> reporter: yes. he has been a long time ally. a key partner in bringing about his morey press sieve ideas. a key figure in russian society. he has previously criticized the war going even further offering some kind of spiritual incentive to those being called out. the fact that if they die during their duty, they will be cleansed of their sins. the calls coming in opposition of widespread opposition and in
the face of official md missions. there are plans being carried out. as he has through the area, the ukrainian orthodox church was under the patriarchy. it's highlighted the regions in the christian church as a whole. the pope has been very vocal in his opposition to this. just last week pope francis criticized it, calling it a terrible plan. >> how much influence does the russian orthodox church have on the lives of russians. what's it like in russia? >> reporter: under putin he has brought it back. under subject times religion
wasn't encouraged. under putin he's brought it back as a crucial element in society. it's been a clean job. >> great context there. still ahead, american workers fighting to kekeep pace with crushing g inflation. first, vice president t kamala harris paying final respects to japan's longng-time prime minister.

zwroo in iran state yesterday yeah is reporting 41 people have been killed as protests sweep the nation. thousands are marching despite violent government crackdowns. cnn's jomana could he mad curragh chi. >> reporter: these protests are different from what we've seen. it's difficult to assess as the protests enter the second week, how widespread, how big they are because of the government's restrictions on the internet, but it does appear from video that we are seeing emerging overnight, people are still defiant, still taking to the street despite an intensifying crackdown.
>> reporter: regime supporters out en masse. these organized pro government rallies a show of unity against the so-called rioters they say. iran's leadership is dismissing the thousands of protesters across the country as a handful of mercenaries. they claim it's all a foreign block is trying to crush the rising voices of dissent. it's started with the internet. blocking social media sites. dragging protesters off the streets and using lethal force to silence those reezing up for their rights. no one really knows how many leaves have been lost. you but the gut wrenching scenes

policy, your auto insurance policy if you have a watercraft, watercraft policy. put it in a ziplock bag so that you can keep all your documents nice and dry and that way you can take them with you if you have to evacuate as well. that way you have all of your insurance documents and information in hand should you have severe damage to your house or you have to put in a claim, you have all of that information. keep in mind, your local agent might not have power either so it's very helpful to have this handy. >> what will happen is the insurance companies will come in and they'll do the hardest hit areas first, right? >> correct. >> they'll set up sort of local command centers. that might be your first point of contact. >> absolutely. absolutely. and you'll head down to the command center with your document. it will make the process so much easier. yes, they do have laptops, information, they can look you up by your name and your address, but especially here in south florida with all of the
companies that have gone insolvent in the last 18 months, who you were insured with last year might not be who you are insured with now. it's good to have copies of your current policy. >> take pictures of everything, videos of everything. what about renters? >> with renters, same thing. make sure that they have the documentation of all their personal belongings. again, take pictures and video as you leave or as you're going to hunker down. one of the things that you should do, because like you said, they're going to start from the hardest hit areas first, make sure you take pictures of the damage and that you are ready to make certain repairs to prevent further damage and document that as well. >> thank you so much for your expertise. this is going to be a tough few days, i think, for a lot of people in florida. >> yes, it will.
