winds, knock over the camera there. >> wow, here's what we know so far. ian is now a tropical storm but it's still packing winds topping 65 miles per hour and that wind is crushing the power grid with more than 2.5 million customers without power. the threat of the storm now stretching beyond the sunshine state with north and south carolina, georgia and virginia also now under a state of emergency. >> we have team coverage across the storm zone and we start off with ginger zee in fort myers. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: michael, it was an unbelievable 24 hours that we just spent inside ian. so i want you to look. right behind me, this is from the pool deck. you've got foot bridges, all of this, by the way, is in the front of the hotel that came from the back of the hotel. the power of water is so insane and i think so many people, unfortunately, had to learn that lesson in southwest florida yesterday. >> oh, man. >> whoa! >> reporter: this morning, coastal southwest florida decimated.
ferocious hurricane ian shredding parts of the peninsula.tegory 4 storm making history as one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever make landfall in the sunshine state. >> the amount of water that's been rising and will likely continue to rise today, even as the storm is passing, is basically a 500-year flood event. >> reporter: ian slicing onto the coast wednesday on the barrier islands near fort myers. winds up to 140 miles per hour ripping apart homes, sending debris like projectiles. surge pushing water laced with rubble through the streets. ian also carried life-threatening and record storm surge. the ocean overtaking the land. overnight more than 2 million customers throughout the state losing power. >> that's my grandparents' house. >> reporter: in fort myers beach, many waking up to find they've lost almost everything. >> somebody's rv came in our backyard. that's our pool.
that's our deck. that was my house. my house is gone. >> reporter: this neighborhood turning into an extension of the gulf. streets consumed by water. cars submerged. buildings shredded. these trees barely hanging on. >> we are beginning to get a sense that our community has been in some respects decimated. >> reporter: this floating debris was once someone's house. >> wow. >> reporter: w.i.n.k. tv in fort myers forced off the air after water submerged their newsroom. down in naples, water seeping into the first floor of this hospital. in tampa powerful winds sending this tree into a home. the hurricane also one of the top ten to make landfall in the u.s. roaring ashore near cayo costa,
carrying 150-mile-per-hour winds and an hour later making another landfall is second time on florida's main land, south of punta gorda. as the winds shifted we were right there in ian's eye wall, the storm surge showing its power. well, the storm surge is flexing. we're about an hour into being in this eye wall. the storm is moving north of us, but we see these winds, and that little house we were talking about all day has gone, succumbed to the storm surge. now the blue roof is all that's left floating in the water toward the building. 2.5 million floridians under some sort of evacuation order, but many chose to stay. first responders battling the apocalyptic conditions to rescue them. members of the naples fire department wading through waist deep water unloading a fire truck after it started to smoke. up in the air, hurricane hunters flying inside ian to gather more critical data, shaken by the extreme turbulence. >> there goes the bed. holy cow. >> reporter: one of them describing it as the roughest
flight of his entire career. and back at our hotel just across from sanibel island, seven hours in the eye wall of this hurricane and it's finally starting to lighten up, enough that i can get out here and show you the surge has gone off. you can see the pool again, just barely seeing the causeway but that causeway goes to sanibel and the reports we've heard is that it is decimated. ian isn't done yet. as southwest florida picks up the pieces, the danger is far from over. that storm heading north. with the dawn of destruction around us, so many people's livelihoods washed by that powerful water and surge and that was pushed by the wind. let me show you the before and during picture because this is not the after. i anticipate that we had a 12 plus foot surge which was exactly what the warning was for. unfortunately, that came true in so many places and that was driven by those winds. wow, 140 miles per hour. you had 107 in sanibel. i think that's before they ended up losing whatever observation
they have. i'm looking around now that i can see some light. these trees are destroyed, taken from the top. big ones that have been here forever are down. i want to make sure you know about the flash flood warning happening north of orlando. more than 16 inches of rain reported. this is just the beginning. we'll see wrap around in savannah. >> you saw the destruction. we want to talk to the lee county sheriff. what's been happening in your area? >> we tracked the storm every minute. we didn't know where it was going to hit. it came into lee county strong. it was just under a cat 5.
it crushed us. we're assessing as we speak. we pulled our resources off at 45 miles an hour sustained winds for safety. we got back out there last night. our special operations unit and special teams that were formed did. we still cannot access many people still in need. the water ways, bridges are compromised. it's a real rough road ahead. >> have you been able to start any of the rescue and recovery efforts? >> we have. throughout this horrific event, you know, governor desantis has been amazing. his team, the team of leaders at every level this state has come together. senator scott continues to call. we have come together utilizing our resources to get through this event and promise that we'll have everything we have and they have followed through. so it is -- it is heart-wrenching. i will tell you we have made some rescues to go through waterways and some we're unable to access.
we have thousands of calls on 911 that are prioritized and we're answering as we speak. >> what do you know right now about injuries and fatalities and do you have any sense, any estimate of how many people are left to be rescued? >> while i don't have confirmed numbers, i know the fatalities are in the hundreds. there are thousands of people that are waiting to be rescued and, again, cannot give a true assessment until we're actually on scene assessing each scene and we can't access people. that's the problem. we're accessing the bridges. we're seeing what's compromised and what's not and this will be a life-changing event for the men and women responding. they're going to see things they've never seen before. so we're going to get together -- the floridians, it's a great state, we have great people here and everyone wants to help. >> fatalities in the hundreds? >> so far confirmed in the hundreds, meaning that we are responding to events, drownings and, again, unsure of the exact
details because we are just starting to scratch the surface on this assessment. we're doing everything that we possibly can. now it's to protect and preserve lives and we are in full force doing that. >> you say you're just starting to scratch the surface. how long do you think it will be to get up and running again? >> well, i'll tell you again, not knowing what we're faced with, it's very hard to give you an exact number and assessment, but i do know the road is long. this is not going to be something that's taken care of in the next day or two. this is going to be long term. long term for many reasons, not only just on the preservation of life and protecting and serving the law and order state, but on the mechanical side looking at bridges and roadways, working with the ceo of ff p&l.
the people coming together to make us get back where we need to be. >> sheriff, we know you have a long day, long weeks ahead. thank you for joining us this morning. we are thinking of you and everyone you're trying to save. amy? >> yes, george, that's heartbreaking. wow, fatalities in the hundreds. i know amid the chaos there were dozens of dramatic rescues taking place, that are still taking place and senior meteorologist rob marciano is live in st. petersburg with more on that part of the story. good morning to you, rob. >> reporter: hi, amy. as 0 we heard the sheriff of lee county told george there were hundreds of fatalities. we did contact the sheriff after that interview. he said those fatalities are unconfirmed and he can't say for sure yet. we reached out to the governor's office. he's saying there's no estimate on fatalities. there will be a preliminary report in the next few hours. we would like to highlight some of the heroism that occurred during the storm. neighbors helping neighbors. take a look.
catastrophic. >> are you guys okay? >> reporter: and devastating. hurricane ian ravaging southwest florida leaving behind submerged neighborhoods and millions left in the dark. >> two people requesting rescue, water over their heads. levels prompting desperate re i. vehicle.r reporting a sinking - unknown if he's breathing. caller disconnected. >> reporter: in fort myers beach this family bunkering down on the third floor of his home after water levels climbed the two floors below. >> we weren't prepared for quite this magnitude. we were hoping it would dodge us. it didn't dodge us. it got worth. >> reporter: mountains of debris from decimated homes collecting in the flood. >> there's a bed. i can see -- i mean, it's -- there's doors. >> reporter: this entire home ripped from its foundation. >> wow. >> reporter: just 16 miles southwest in bonita springs, a group of good samaritans rescuing an elderly man from a flooded vehicle carrying him to safety in the waist high waters. in naples kimberly walker telling abc news about the
moments water began to seep into her home. >> it got to be a lot more and a lot more and a lot more and it was just, it didn't matter what you did. the water started coming into my home reaching about midthigh. i knew i had to get out. >> reporter: walker and her dog forced to swim across the street to a neighbor's home. >> the center was probably about up to here and running really fast. i can wash my clothes, but i can't replace my dog or my life. >> reporter: in the midst of lost moments of hope, this australian cameraman putting down his camera to help. >> just helping some people through the water. that's our camera operator glenn ellis out there trying to help people wading away from their homes. >> reporter: everyone lending a hand where they could. this was a situation we hoped we wouldn't be in. evacuation orders were expanded quickly. some people didn't leave. some people didn't have time to leave. in some cases we had areas flood that weren't evacuation zones.
that's how powerful the water was. that 10, 12-foot surge may be gone, but the storm is not. we're looked into the carolinas with the next landfall headed for tomorrow. michael? >> all right, thank you so much for that, rob. ian is on the move. orlando getting slammed with a foot of rain in just 24 hours. janai norman is there live for us this morning. good morning, janai. >> reporter: hey, michael, this wind, this rain was ramping up as we went to bed last night. it con it continued all night and we're not expecting it to let up even as the sun starts to come up and this has created the flooding that local officials were concerned about. i checked with florida highway patrol. there are roads in parts of central florida blocked off and shut down because of all that flooding on the roadways. there are areas where there have been rescues from people whose
cars got stuck in the water or who needed help escaping their homes. the orlando is still under flash flood emergencies this morning. they got 16 inches of rain in 24 hours. that's a record. that makes this, as we've been saying, a 1,000-year flood event, the raining in the orlando area. there's a .01% of this happening in any year. while this is florida, this is a lot of rain for this area. as the day goes on we'll continue to see the impacts. george? >> thanks very much. to victor oquendo in fort myers. we know, victor, at least 2 million without power in the state. what is the latest on that? >> reporter: good morning, george. so much of southwest florida is waking up in the dark. nearly 2.5 million customers are without power right now and the area with the most outages, right here where we are in lee county with nearly 420,000 out and, remember, that number is for customers or households, not total people.
so the number of people without power right now, much higher than that. the good news is that there is a workforce of 19,000 from 30 different states ready to help restore power. the bad news, access to the hardest hit areas will be challenging. look at all the debris behind me. roads will have to be cleared. this is going to be a massive undertaking. amy? >> it certainly will. victor, thank you so much. the threat is growing now beyond florida. trevor ault is in jacksonville with more. good morning, trevor. >> reporter: amy, it's now nohe florida's turn to battle with ian. in jacksonville the wind and rain are picking up. to the south along the beaches, some communities are in trouble. atlantic, jacksonville beach, there are evacuations in place. some spots could get 15 to 20 inches of rain. we're going to talk about significant flooding in florida.
here in jacksonville they have bridges up and down the city. they have to close. we'll get sustained winds of 40 miles an hour. we have the st. john's river that flowed through the city. the winds could reverse that flow, it's so strong. michael? >> all right, thank you so much, trevor. >> we'll cover this all morning long and following a lot of other stories including the breaking news we're learning about vladimir putin's next move. also ahead how california is cracking down on catalytic converter thefts and the one step you can take to protect your car. first back to florida. >> reporter: ian continues to bring heavy rain to the northern part of the state. new flash flood emergencies out for daytona and new smyrna. you see the swirl. the next stop is the carolinas. charleston is under the bull's eye. we'll keep track of it. your local forecast just 30 seconds away.

where a hurricane watch is up for charleston and rightfully so. by tomorrow afternoon you could end up to seeing three to five-foot-plus storm surge. michael, this is a storm that has now tied for top five strongest landfalls in u.s. history, and it's not over yet. >> that's not good news there, ginger. thank you. no surprise that the storm is crippling travel. thousands of flights already canceled as the domino effect disrupts transportation across the nation. transportation correspondent gio benitez is in tampa with the latest. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, michael, good morning to you. these airports are not re-opening until they make sure there's no damage and evacuated staff can get back safely. the numbers now, right now across the country about 2,000 flights have been canceled. more than 800 already tomorrow. these aren't just flights in florida. this is causing problems for flights nationwide because planes, they are out of place and airlines need to get them back here to get things moving again. jacksonville canceling all flights today.
the faa telling us major airports like in tampa, orlando and fort myers will re-open tomorrow around noon, but, again, that's only if there's no damage and once they re-open, it's going to be a slow start. we will likely see a ripple effect across the country over the weekend. >> no question about that. gio, thanks. we'll go overseas now for the latest on the war in ukraine and more apparent sabotage from russia on the critical nord stream pipeline. a fourth leak confirmed as vladimir putin closes in on his plan to illegally annex parts of ukraine. ian pannell is on the scene. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, george. it's the news that everybody was kind of expecting and every ukrainian was dreading. surprising, no. shocking, yes. in the next 24 hours vladimir putin is going to put a semi legal gloss on an attempt to grab four large chunks of ukrainian territory. this morning the kremlin announcing that vladimir putin will hold a signing ceremony
tomorrow to formally annex the areas of ukraine it's occupied. the move follows bogus referendums in four areas of ukraine where unsurprisingly an overwhelming majority of voters apparently supported annexation. president zelenskyy pushing back. [ speaking in non-english ] saying, "these brutal violations of the u.n. charter must be punished." the white house denouncing the elections. >> these referenda are illegitimate and frankly outrageous. we will never recognize these illegal and illegitimate attempts at annexation. >> reporter: the white house is expected to announce a new round of sanctions but in the meantime, unveiling another $1.1 billion in significant military aid to ukraine. also this morning, a fourth leak is being confirmed in the nord stream gas pipeline that runs under the baltic sea from russia to germany. earlier leaks were detected after underwater explosions. u.s. officials now saying there
was apparent sabotage amid an ongoing investigation. russia denying any involvement but the incident sending already high gas prices soaring increasing 14% in europe since the leaks emerged. inside russia the flight over the border continues this morning. thousands of men fleeing into neighboring countries to escape putin's military draft. the u.s. embassy in moscow now urging all american citizens in russia to leave the country immediately amid fears they could be conscripted into russia's troubled war in ukraine. well, we now have to see how the international community responds to putin's move. we know that the u.s. is going to impose sanctions, the eu already announced yet another package of sanctions. certainly in this new u.s. military aid package there are 18 himars, the mobile rocket systems that have made such a big difference on the battlefield. but for ukrainians, the military commanders here, this will not
make a bit of difference. they're going to pursue their war and try to liberate every single piece of ukrainian land. george? >> ian pannell, thanks. now to vice president kamala harris on a mission to south korea this morning just days after north korea fired two ballistic missiles into the sea. foreign correspondent james longman in london with the story. good morning, james. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, george. north korea carried out another missile launch just hours before vice president kamala harris visited south korea and fired two short-range ballistic missiles towards south korea's eastern waters on wednesday evening. that was their second test in a week. now, kamala harris visited the demilitarized zone looking through binoculars from an observation deck. she spent time speaking to u.s. service members there. the visit was aimed at shoring up support for the south. kim jong-un's regime launched ballistic missiles 18 times and carried out more than 30 tests in total. there's also concern that north korea forged ahead with their nuclear program and lawmakers in seoul claim pyongyang has prepared an underground nuclear
test site and will launch their seventh nuclear test as early as next month. as is always the case with north korea, it's impossible to know anything for sure. george? >> that is for sure. james, thanks. amy? back here at home california is cracking down on catalytic converter theft. it's a major problem across the country and mona kosar abdi joins us now with more on what the new legislation means and how you can add an extra layer of safety for yourself. good morning to you, mona. >> reporter: amy, good morning. i'm here in monkey's mufflers and catalytics standing under a toyota prius, one of the most targeted vehicles when it comes to catalatic converter thefts. this is what these thieves are after. if you follow me to the front of the vehicle, in between the two front tires you will find the catalytic converter. i'm told thieves will slide under the vehicle, unbolt it from the car, slice it right out of the exhaust and they're gone in under two minutes and you're
left with thousands of dollars in damage. this morning, california the latest state cracking down on catalytic converter theft, making it more difficult for thieves to pawn off and resell these valuable car parts. >> it will now be illegal in california to buy catalytic converters from anyone other than licensed auto dismantlers or dealers. >> reporter: new legislation increases penalties for buyers who can't prove the catalytic converter was not stolen and requires recyclers to keep specific records showing they're only doing business with car owners and authorized sellers. >> you take away the market for stolen goods, you can help cut down on stealing. >> reporter: catalytic converters can be sold for $1,500 or more. the parts within made of precious metals like platinum and rhodium. across the country brazen thieves caught on tape going after it. in one incident, two thieves jump out of a van in broad daylight. a neighbor recording, chased away with a blowtorch. >> get out of here, go.
>> reporter: in thousand oaks, california, this video shows a police chase over converter thefts turning into an officer-involved shooting. >> stop! stop! >> we've seen where they quickly like nascar get the jacks, jack them up, cut them off. keep an eye out for security and the cops. walk out of here and get these items, 300 bucks apiece, generally, and making 10 or 20 a night. >> reporter: police departments holding evening events to combat the problem so drivers can their vin numbers permanently marked. >> deep hole in the pocket so if anything we can do to try to prevent it, it would be great. >> reporter: according to the nati there are 155 catalytic converter bills in 37 states and congress. 29 of which have enacted laws helping to curb the crime. one step you can take personally to protect your car, adding a steel plate cover over your catalytic converter. >> the amount of time that it would take to steal the
converter would deter them from taking it. you can't just jack it up and be two. in less than a minute or - >> reporter: back out here live i'm told to replace a catalytic converter on the prius behind me would cost around $3,000. but if you have comprehensive insurance you're likely covered against catalytic converter theft. guys? >> all right, very important information there, mona. >> still expensive for the car owner or the insurance company. >> sure is. next, grammy winning rapper coolio passing away unexpectedly. what we know so far when we come back with more "gma." ♪ because i been blasting and laughing so long that even my mama thinks my mind is gone ♪ ccs have you given to people? me? about 1000. walgreens...millions. no way can i miss her big debut. with your booster, i think you'll be there. for every twirl. i got a shot so my sister won't get sick. way to go, big bro! so while we're here... ...flu shot, as well? let's do it. when you need to talk vaccinations,

off the air after water submerged their newsroom. water seeping into the first floor of this hospital in port charlotte, and in tampa, powerful winds sending this tree into a home. the hurricane also one of the top ten to make landfall in the u.s. roaring ashore near cayo costa carrying 150-mile-per-hour winds. about an hour later making landfall a second time onto florida's mainland south of punta gorda. as the winds shifted, we were right there in ian's eye wall. the storm surge showing its power. well, the storm surge is flexing. we're about an hour into being in this eye wall. the storm is moving north of us but we see the winds and that little house we were talking about all day has gone. succumbed to the storm surge, now the blue roof is all that's left floating in the water toward the building. up in the air hurricane hunters flying inside ian to gather more critical data shaken by the extreme turbulence.
>> there goes the bed. holy cow. >> reporter: one of them describing it as the roughest flight of his entire career. ian isn't done yet. as southwest florida picks up the pieces, the danger is far from over. that storm heading north. i'm coming to you now on the phone because our service has been so intermittent it is nearly impossible to broadcast, let alone to get phone calls out. i can't imagine the folks who are in need of help right now. you can't get anywhere. the roads are covered with giant trees. you may be seeing the drone video that we were able to get through earlier just as the sun came up. often when you have 120 to 140-mile-per-hour winds like this it can look like a tornado. because we had those for hours on end. being inside an eye wall, when i was in michael for example, we were in there for 45 minutes. this time it was six hours. so the damage that you're seeing and the destruction and that push of surge which i estimate we had at least 12 feet right
here where i am, that took out so many structures. vehicles are gone. parts of our crew's vehicles are gone. we can't get out of here because the roads have either been washed out or they're covered in this really slick silt and huge trees in the way. one other note, the causeway that goes to sanibel where we know that they took a brunt of the storm, there are parts of it impassable at this moment. so, again, my heart and concern is with anyone who might have stayed, with anyone who needs rescue right now. and, george, this is just the beginning of a long day in southwest florida assessing and getting to people and hopefully saving some lives. >> boy, that is very clear. ginger, thanks very much. we have a clarification from an earlier interview with sheriff carmine marceno. he told us there were hundreds of fatalities. we checked back and he said he can't confirm any casualty numbers right now. he said it was a horrific storm and they'll get an assessment of the damage as soon as they can and that people are still
trapped. amy? >> well, let's go back to the storm zone and rob marciano has the latest from st. petersburg. good morning to you, rob. >> reporter: hi, amy. now that the storm is weaker, where it came through the worst, rescues are happening more safely, but during the storm when first responders may not have been able to get out there was neighbors helping neighbors trying to help people who needed it. we had water and evacuation in zones that weren't evacuated because the forecast track changed and record-breaking storm surge in fort myers, in lee county and naples, throughout lee county and punta gorda, very high water and it was just dramatic scenes of people actually swimming to safety in some cases, moving to higher floors in their apartments and homes and doing what they had to do to survive. a scene that we didn't think we'd see since hurricane katrina but had such a frustrating track that some people were caught on their heels. let's go through where it is right now and where it's going. now a tropical storm but it is pounding the central and eastern
part of the state. we have got flood emergencies, flash flood emergencies ongoing north and east of orlando there. we've had over ten inches of rain falling. you can see it is still spiraling in. hurricane warnings remain up for a good chunk of the florida peninsula and hurricane watch from jacksonville, savannah, charleston because that's where it's going next and as we mentioned a few minutes ago there's still very warm water there and it could at the very least hold together if not strengthen potentially back to category 1 hurricane status and into charleston, two to five plus feet of water. that floods most of the city. jacksonville throughout the morning will get a significant storm surge as well. that's the latest on where ian is headed to. we're not done with this yet, michael. >> that just makes you shake your head in disbelief, rob. overnight orlando getting so much rain it was a 1,000-year flood event for the city and janai norman is there live now. good morning, janai. >> reporter: michael, good morning.
that wind, that rain has continued in the last hour. we felt some pretty strong gusts and watched as the awning on our hotel continued to blow, eventually blowing off and we walked down to check out the lake down there i was telling you about an hour ago. that absolutely is a lake, from all of the rain it has come out of its banks and spilled onto the roadway on to orange. there is still a flash flood emergency in parts of central florida including here in orlando as rob was just telling us. this area, the orlando area got more than 16 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. that is a record. that is as michael said a 1,000-year flood event, less than a 0.1% chance of it happening in any given year and it will be a long day as the rain continues coming down. amy? >> it certainly is, janai. we know that the storm is crippling travel. thousands of flights have already been canceled as the domino effect disrupts transportation across the country now. transportation correspondent gio benitez is in tampa with the latest on that part of the story. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, amy, good morning, again. it's going to be a slow start once these airports start reopening and that's not happening until at least tomorrow. let's take a look at those
numbers again because about 2,00 flights have been canceled today across america. more than 800 already tomorrow and this is happening across the country because planes are out of place. jacksonville canceling all flights for today. the faa telling us major airports like right here in tampa, orlando and fort myers will re-open tomorrow around noon but, again, that's only if there's no damage. and no matter where you are, if you are flying in the next few days, check your ticket, check your flights because there's a good chance you may not have a plane, guys. >> okay, gio. thank you very much. coming up on our "gma morning menu," what the head of fema is saying about the devastation of the hurricane and how long the recovery will take. also ahead, the latest for shakira and what's next in her tax evasion trial. plus, the sanderson sisters are back.
