accident in the city of san jose . but as of today, there have been 26 pedestrian deaths in san jose up from 19 last year. anyone that may have information about that january 7th accident is asked to call police fire crews responding early this morning to a car over a cliff along highway one south of san francisco. rescuers repelled down about 200 ft to reach the mangled cars you see here of the driver, a man was apparently the only person inside the vehicle when it careened right over the cliff near gray whale cove state beach just south of devil's slide, first responders were able to stabilize him so he could be taken to the hospital. there's no word on his current condition. the stretch of highway one south of pacifica is notorious for crashes that have sent many vehicles plummeting over the cliffs there. a wrongful death lawsuit has been filed now against a senior facility in the bay area after one of its residents died. family members say that 93 year

4:13 pm
then is staggering over 500. people have already been rescued, and both leah and charlotte county's and thousands of homes and businesses have been washed away, will take years to rebuild, especially in the city of fort myers. let's take you to fort myers, where foxes austin westfall has spent the day surveying the damage, and austin. i spent a lot of years there covering the red sox spring training. i can only imagine what that city looks like now. that's right. so, basically, frank, we're in a town right near fort myers. it's called punta gorda. basically this was a direct hit area. this is where the wind speeds of 155 mph. plus we're hitting this area. a lot of the town was underwater immediately after the storm hit. now everything has dried off, and people are focusing more on the damage the debris you can see over my shoulder. that's a mangled storage facility. and there are so many buildings like that
4:14 pm
around town. take a look at some footage we took as we drove around this morning we saw a lot of the beginnings of recovery efforts. we saw plenty of power line workers working to restore power. we saw people that were clearing brush from the streets and from their businesses, and we saw people removing those protective boards from their windows. power is still out in much of this area, and many businesses are still closed. gas is also very hard to find. we went around town today. only one gas station we saw open and the line was all the way down the street. this afternoon. we also visited peace river wildlife center. it's an animal sanctuary that rehabs injured and orphans native florida wildlife like eagles and tortoises. there rehab facility was mostly destroyed and the animals had to be moved from that location. some of their animals did not make it through the week. wasn't necessarily the storm itself that killed them. but the stress of having to be packed up in tiny little crates and then the places they got moved to got hit anyway. so then they had get moved again and again, and you know it, so it's not ideal for
4:15 pm
these animals. now just south of punta gorda is fort myers. that's where fox news took a helicopter flight to view the damage. yesterday afternoon, we saw boats in marshlands. we saw pieces of wood where homes once stood, and we saw cars that are still completely underwater. county sheriff says the hurricane caused damaged like he's never seen before. i've been in florida over 20 years. to me. i've been through hurricanes before, but this one in particular this rocked us. now that sheriff did share with us some grim news today. he confirmed that hurricane ian killed at least 16 people that number coming from just lee county alone. back to you, and i'm curious. i know your initial reaction is to evacuate, but then you want to go back. and see what's left of your home and your possessions. are they letting people into punta gorda or down south there in cape coral and fort myers? for the most part, it appears that the
4:16 pm
roads are open. we drove by some of the areas hardest hit their you know, obviously, there's going to be some variation depending on you know what the access is like. there are tree limbs there. there are still some small areas that are flooded. so access plays a big role in this, but for the areas that are accessible, it does appear that a lot of it is open. i drove down from tampa today. temple is about two hours north of where i'm at right now. and as i made that to our trip, there was traffic. a lot of people are heading back down this way. it appears whether or not it's to survey the damage, whether or not it might be to return to their home. we don't know, but there's one thing that's for sure lot of buildings here are damaged, and it appeared that a lot of people were working on their front yards. just gting all take a look. austin westfall live for us in southwest florida. thank you very much. well hurricane ian could be florida's costliest storm ever. estimates put the
4:17 pm
wind and flood damage there about $20 billion, just above the 26.5 billion in losses caused by hurricane andrew, which is south florida. back in 1992. let's welcome back to the show this afternoon. martin novo, former freemen fema presidential appointee, mark always a pleasure to see you at the damage here is so extensive the major disaster declaration, though, explain how it will help. yeah and this particular case? what's important high heather holmes prank is that they have 100% funding for next 30 days to do debris cleanup, so they're going to start taking care of what austin was just talking about us all that debris on the roadway. get those opened up so that you can get people back into their businesses and homes and get power turned on. but it also allows the state to be open disaster recover recovery centers in neighborhoods as well as pods, points of distribution that will bring supplies water. outer cots, food. to those areas that don't have infrastructure. and
4:18 pm
sadly marked. the death toll has now reached 21, with many rescues taking place. others in shelters explain what the biggest challenge is right now for those rescue crews. well it's you know, it's the same for the rescue crews as it is for people who live there and down power lines that you know the echo. it's a it's a different animals that are out of their habitat. it's the water system that's not working. all of those are components to it. so as they rescue folks, it's more about relocating folks. a lot of them. it's not that their lives are threatened, but they needed to be removed from their homes or rooftop to a safe area. and as you heard, and you mentioned 500 of those folks had to be relocated rescue from where they were at talked about power outages. obviously the wind the water, just, you know, destroying the infrastructure there. water though, mark is a big concern. i know a lot of areas were still under boil water advisories. yeah what we
4:19 pm
saw were i think it's 16 counties where their water system is completely out of service, and there's some that are partially operated, so that's part of the challenge and being able to get people back in there now to restore power is one thing to the grid. but the other part of this is that all that salt water has done a tremendous amount of damage to the homes and the businesses so they may get power to their building, but they're going to have to evaluate their wiring inside and replace a lot of that, too. more challenge to the recovery. and another big challenge mark is that this thing isn't over yet. now you have south carolina to deal with talk about the strength that that puts on first responders. and actually, what they did do in this case is moved one of the search and rescue teams from down in florida and send it over to columbia, south carolina, anticipation of being a problem there. so far. what we're hearing is there is flooding. there are streets flooded but it by no means is it to the degree
4:20 pm
of florida, which is good news. so now once that passes through the carolinas, they can try and concentrate back more resources in florida. yeah obviously more damage for us to assess in the coming days. really appreciate your time today, mark having yourself a good weekend. thank you to heather. you well, the red cross is on the ground, providing both aid and resources to those hurricane victims, and ktvu and fox are trying to help in that mission boxes donated $1 million to the relief effort. money for shelter, neil's medical supplies and a lot more and you're invited to join us in that effort. please visit. red cross dot org slash fox forward. truly is a force of nature hurricane in 11 05 this morning making landfall in georgetown, just 61 miles outside of charleston. this is what it looked like as it was moving onshore, and it came onshore at the worst time possible at high tide. now take a look at the
4:21 pm
mammoth size of this beast. the rain bands stretch out 1000 miles, the wind stretches out 485 miles from its core, it is continued. to try to lift to the north as it jogs to the west of 15 mph the wind speed at 70 mph . it will continue to act like a major northeaster all weekend long inundating the entire northeast coast as well as the east coast into the southeast. what you're looking at those dots there. i wanted to allude to them. some of the storm reports that already came in tornadoes, strong storm surge as well. this is harley being over . this is what's going on here now. this has been really interest. sting to watch today at lunchtime today noon it was totally clear and then i saw finger of fog move in. and now at this hour, we could barely see the tip top of the tower of the golden gate bridge, which stands 746 ft. tall so this is a compressed deck of a marine layer at this hour 73 degrees currently in san francisco.

4:26 pm
world. in washington, the white house announcing new sanctions aimed at stopping russia from rearming its military calling it the best way to ensure the ukrainians can continue their counter offensive. united states is never going to recognize this. and quite frankly, the world is not going to recognize it, either. he can't seize his neighbor's territory. and get away with this simple as that. and that counteroffensive is still rolling on officials here , shrugging off warnings about attacking with the kremlin now calls russian territory and also pushing nato to accelerate ukraine's application, despite claims from russia that it could mean another escalation factor. so use nick defacto allies. we trust each other. we help each other and we protect each other. this is what the alliance's. meanwhile, the pentagon is working to accelerate delivery of the latest us weapons package worth $1.1 billion, and defense officials say they expect to announce even more military aid in the coming weeks. we continue to evaluate what will be needed. and make provisions to provide

4:28 pm
for 30 years but now it's been redistricted. the lines have been changed. they've drawn into it. palm springs, one of the most pro lgbt communities in the entire state, and will rollins, young, democrat openly gay, former federal prosecutor against terrorism cases is the candidate for the democrats, and we talked to him about the role of lgbtq rights and also abortion in this race. our community is not gonna put up with that, and i think the country really does best when we all succeed based on merit, and that's what i'm about clarence thomas in overturning abortion rights basically suggested that gay marriage could be next that he would support overturning that none of the other justices agreed with him, at least in paper. do you think that's a real threat? yeah i think we should take them at their word. and look. that concurrence provides a roadmap for exactly where the supreme court would go. it's where republican
4:29 pm
elected like calvert have said they want to take the country for the last 30 years. he's somebody who joined the lawsuit to overturn roe, who's had some pretty radical positions on that issue over the years, and i really see the lgbt communities fight as bound up with women's right in in for freedom and reproductive equality. so all the political experts think that at least three or four of the closest political races in the country are right here in california and heather, as you know, because of the way that we vote. with so many mail in ballots, it could be weeks until we know who wins those races after the final day to vote, which is november 8th. could indeed be a long wait. alright alex. thank you. the issue airs sunday mornings at 6 30 right here on ktvu catch more of alex's interviews again sunday morning coming up, while florida officials survey all the damage hurricane in continues its
