than anticipated. tim kaine and mike pence wasted no time launching into attacks on each other and their running mates. >> and i can't imagine how governor pence can defend the insult-driven selfish me first style of donald trump. >> senator, you and hillary clinton would know a lot about an insult driven campaign. >> last night' debate was as much about the top of the ticket as it was about kaine and pence. for example, the indiana governor was asked about trump's refusal to release his tax returns. >> those tax returns that were -- that came out publicly this week showed that he faced some pretty tough times 20 years ago but like every other business including the "new york times" not too long ago he had a net operating loss. we have a tax code, senator, that actually is designed to encourage entrepreneurship.

winds. the category 4 storm brought torrential rain to haiti's southwestern peninsula. streets were turned into raging rivers. the water moved cars downed the street with ease as people tried to get to safety. >> it will continue to follow the shape of the coast as we head into friday up to the georgia south carolina coast and then on saturday into sunday it starts to move north and east. >> reporter: matthew is predicted to be closest to the florida coast overnight from thursday into friday. people are stocking up on emergency supplies like food, water and batteries. florida governor rick scott is warning residents to know the evacuation route. >> if matthew directly impacts florida, there will be massive destruction that we aren't seen in years. >> reporter: further up the coast in south carolina, long lines can be found at gas stations after the governor warned an estimated 1.1 million people could be ready to move inland. >> our goal is to make sure that you basically get 100 miles away from the coast. >> reporter: the storm is expected to maintain 130-mile-
per-hour winds as it heads towards the eastern seaboard. hena daniels, cbs news. i have compiled a number of different computer models in the weather center with the assistance of noaa to put together a tracking map for hurricane matthew. keep in mind, there you have matthew over haiti. as it blasted onshore at cuba and tangles up with hispanola it lost strength and downsized to category 3 but they gather strength and momentum so watch this as that hurricane moves into the warmer waters outside the bahamas. it becomes a category 4 again with winds in excess of 145 miles per hour moving into the state of florida thursday 2 p.m. with 130-mile-per-hour winds so we have hurricane watches and
evacuations in effect at this time for the state of florida. keep in mind that hurricane winds can extend out at least a good 120 to 150 miles so while you may be buffeted with those hurricane-force winds in florida, you're probably beginning to see some of the effects in the state of georgia, as well. we'll continue to monitor hurricane matthew. sunnyvale-based yahoo reportedly created software to search its customers' emails for information requested by the federal government. the reuters news agency cites two former yahoo employees and another source. >> they say that yahoo agreed to a classified directive from the n sa or the fbi. they wanted yahoo to search for a set of characters but it's not clear what specific information they wanted. so far yahoo has no comment. with halloween just weeks away some in the bay area are quite concerned about clowns.
kpix 5's jackie ward is live in our newsroom to tell us about the national scare reaching the bay area. >> reporter: this craze that's been at the center of dozens of hoaxes in 23 states. now the oakland school police chief says the threat to his schools is so serious that he put into a violent category. the police chief says creepy clown messages were posted on instagram and directly targeted oakland schools. there were two specific threats to two specific schools but he wouldn't say which ones. the antioch and fairfield school districts have also been targeted. bay area law enforcement officials say there is no credibility to the threats and that the schools are safe. >> clowning has gone through several definitions and, um, part of what's happening in the culture today is that we have individuals who are clearly mentally ill who, you know, are, um, donning masks and scaring people. and you know, the whole clown horror thing, it's a very specific thing that has nothing at all whatever to do with real clowning.
>> reporter: so that was sarah moore. she is the director of the clown conservatory in san francisco. she says more than anything, true clowning is not about scaring people. it's about being a human cartoon and making people smile. nationwide at least 12 clowns have been arrested and one school district in connecticut says it will ban clown costumes for halloween this season. in the newsroom, jackie ward, kpix 5. let's check in with roqui for a look at our morning commute. >> thank you, michelle. not looking too bad just as of yet. we have some time still left in the morning but time now 6:06. let's take a look at the altamont pass traffic coming off 205 at justle miles per hour. of course this is our hot spot of the morning. otherwise looking good. slow through north flynn and frees up into livermore. we have a new crash in dublin westbound 84 at the 680 split a car that hit a deer. it is all moved to the center

well, it's a half cent sales tax over 30 years and it's supposedly going to bring in billions and thousands of jobs. live in san jose, maria medina, kpix 5. a new program starts in marin county today to help with the housing crisis. the county is partnering with the marin housing authority to try to help renters find more affordable housing. currently a lot of people are turned away because they can't afford the rent and landlords can't accept certain federal housing vouchers. the county says landlords will be able to accept a lot more in the new pilot program. time now 6:09. the new water conservation numbers are out today and not looking good. we could see the return of mandatory cutbacks. coming up. >> and why the city of san francisco is threatening to annex its much smaller neighbor. >> and welcome to your "hump day." good morning, everyone, on this wednesday. it's going to be warmer today

strengthening and traversing towards the state of california according to our futurecast. as it does so the air mass will warm up and then we'll see again those temperatures above normal. today 70s throughout the central valley. low 70s in ukiah. it is currently 21 degrees in truckee going up to 54 degrees today. 60s and better air quality in monterey bay back through carmel and pebble beach. 60s and 70s here locally today up to 78 degrees in brentwood. notice 80s inland thursday but we are watching the bay temperatures for fleet week celebrations. we couldn't have painted a better picture. by the way, tomorrow, are you ready for some football? the 49ers tomorrow night on kpix 5. 76 degrees and clear skies. the only vice-presidential debate of the campaign season is in the books and it provided plenty of memorable moments.
kpix 5 reporter melissa caen joins us now and this was a spirited debate more than we expected. what were your impressions? >> so before the debate, people were calling this the battle of the blands or the thrilla in [ indiscernible ] owe expectations were low but it got pretty dicey. i heard one person describe it as two dads, two sucker dads arguing with a ref for 90 minutes over their kids' game. so it got actually so much cross talk so much interrupting that it got distracting frankly, um, looking at 90 minutes of this. a number of people on twitter and elsewhere were saying, you know what, i'm tuning out. atlanta is on. i'm leaving this debate right now. it turned some people off. [ overlapping speakers ]
>> it was that for a lot of the debate. now, some people are doing different counts. the numbers that i saw were that kaine interrupted pence 39 times to pence's 19. one gop strategist said it was kaine interrupted 64 times. whatever the exact number, we do know there was a lot of kaine interruption most from him. >> after a debate like this everyone wants to talk about who won the debate last night. the republican national committee website declared pence the clear winner before it started. are there any real winners in a debate like this? >> i saw one post-debate poll that gave the options pence, kaine, or donald trump's twitter feed. so, um, [ laughter ] >> so this is definitely unconventional. the cnn poll showed mike pence won. we are going to talk later this morning about the [ indiscernible ] focus group of undecided voters in ohio on "cbs this morning." 22 of the 26 said that mike
pence won this debate. and you know, look, is it going to move the needle? maybe. mike pence was able to get some folks who were on the fence or maybe going to, you know, sort of begrudgingly vote for donald trump more of a reason to do so and more of a reason to feel comfortable with that decision with pence as his running mate. so if anything was accomplished it was that that was the big accomplishment. >> so there were multiple reports out this morning claiming donald trump is furious with his running mate because there were certain times where pence passed up opportunities to defend trump's position. what do you make of those reports? is it true? >> well, so, the reports to be clear are anonymous. so no one from the trump campaign for obvious reasons i would guess has come out and attached their names to the reports. we have two separate anonymous reports that trump is upset because kaine repeatedly put pence on the spot and said defend trump's position on this
or that and pence repeatedly dodged those challenges. >> six times tonight i have said to governor pence i can't imagine how you can defend your running mate's position on one issue after the next. and in all six cases, he has refused to defend him. >> don't put words in my mouth. [ overlapping speakers ] >> and yet -- >> i will give you an opportunity to do that -- >> take them one at a time. >> more nations should get nuclear weapons try to defend. >> he they ever said that! >> to be fair, donald trump did say at one point that it would be probably a good thing if countries like japan and south korea became nuclear because of their proximity to north korea. at the same time, trump has also said he is against nuclear proliferation. [ laughter ] >> that's how difficult it is to fact check a debate like this. so the folks inside the trump campaign, unnamed sources say trump was upset that pence didn't defend him well enough and a lot of people thought pence did so much better than trump did in his debate. people even title and saying pence should pinch hit for
