7:02 am
in cambridge, virginia. it's completely covered in sand. it almost likes like a summer snow drift. >> get out your shovel. there are states of emergency, watches, and warnings from virginia to new england. so, let's get it out to abc chief meteorologist ginger zee in breezy point, new york, an area still recovering from hurricane sandy. and now bracing for more. hey, ginger, good morning. >> reporter: dan and paula, good morning to you. i can't emphasize enough that this is a coastline storm. beach communities like this will be impacted most. not at all as much inland. and a lot of people are waking up in these beach communities from here through southern new england saying, it's sunny out. what storm are you talking about? well, that thing is some 300-plus miles south and east of us right here. the waves already starting to grow, more than seven feet. and that's why, as that turns to us and sits for days, we're on tropical storm warning anywhere from virginia up through nantucket. overnight, that ominous image. hermine spinning north.
7:03 am
wordwalk in ocean city, maryland. taunting the delaware coast. those winds and outer bands lashing virginia with 60-mile-an-hour winds. neighborhoods inundated. in columbia, north carolina, relentless gusts. toppling this tractor-trailer, killing the 64-year-old driver. up to ten inches of rain in north carolina. the worst of the storm shattering this campground in the outer banks. isolated tornadoes blowing these trailers and cottages into that creek, injuring four, including a 10-month-old baby. in south carolina, trees crushing homes. at the tail end of this trail of destruction, flooding. hard-hit florida is getting rain again. days after the storm, people in pasco county forced to evacuate their homes after a different system caused more flooding. some escaping by boat. hermine, now a post-tropical cyclone is turning toward the northeast. and even providing some action for last-minute thrill seekers
7:04 am
with the jersey shore this morning. as storm surge, alook the coastline, coupled with a slow-moving storm, could put many beachside communities underwater. >> i'm ready to go. as soon as the city puts the siren off, i hit the road. >> reporter: i want to make sure everybody understands, too, you'll hear that term post-tropical cyclone. don't let that make you think that it's less powerful. this storm still has 65-mile- 65-mile-per-hour max sustained winds. i want to bring you right into the satellite image. the convection has blown up on the side. it will change its track. that will affect us in parts of the northeast, along the coast. you can see where the tropical storm warnings and watches extend. all the way up there coastal new jersey, up into massachusetts. they're on tropical storm watch this morning in nantucket. the main concern, beach erosion,
7:05 am
coastal impacts. so, again, if you're inland, and asking, is this like sandy? the answer is no, it is not. this thing is staying out in the ocean. but the bands of wind will pile up water. the high winds, you can see the gusts through sunday night. 20 up to 40 and look at that, close to 50-mile-per-hour winds. that will make the waves and the storm surge a real possibility anywhere near the coast. you see 55 atlantic city, that's monday at 10:00 p.m. and the timing of th important. what will happen is tonight, it will start turning back to the north and west. and eventually, by thursday, it will start to get out of our hair. some places from here down through new jersey that will be impacted sooner than later. that includes longport, new jersey, and that's where eva pilgrim is this morning. >> reporter: good morning, ginger. we're seeing wind and significantly cooler than is normal for this time of year. you can already see the waves angrily crashing on to the
7:06 am
an concerned about with hermine. this storm surge. as hermine sits off the coast and pushes that water in. it keeps the back bays unable to fully drain out, pushing the water higher and higher with each high tide. the high tide starting to spill on to the streets overnight. several coastal counties under a state of emergency. local officials asking people to voluntarily evacuate some shore points. urging residents and tourists to head inland. now, it hasn't been beach weather with this wind and not comfortable for people to sit out near the sand. businesses here taking a big hit. slow on a weekend wh usually are slammed. and if conditions change today, officials really encouraging people to take this weather seriously, ginger. >> that's exactly right, eva. even though it looks that way, it will go from uncomfortable to
7:07 am
that's why we want everybody to focus in on the storm and the timing. things will deteriorate later tonight and through tomorrow. stick around for parts of new england through wednesday. this is a storm we'll be dealing with for a very long time. and it's been two weeks that we have been following this thing already. i'll have a lot more coming up in weather, as far as how big waves get. a lot of people looking at that. and also, what we can look for in the way of rainfall. i'll give you a little tease. it's not as much as you might think. >> thank you, great to have you with us on the weekends, yet again. we'll have more later in the show and on we move to the image from the campaign trail. donald trump swaying in the pews at an african-american church in detroit. this is his latest attempt to appeal to black voters. mary bruce is on the story this morning from washington, d.c. >> reporter: good morning. dan, for weeks, donald trump has been slammed for trying to reach out to african-american voters without actually reaching out to african-americans. now he's trying to change all that, making his first in-person
7:08 am
promising a new civil rights agenda. ? donald trump swaying in the pews at a lively church service in detroit, as he hopes to sway african-american voters. >> those who seek office do not do enough to step into the community and learn what is going on. i'm here today to learn. >> reporter: trump, for the first time, addressing a largely african-american audience after being criticized for trying to woo minority voters by speaking to mostly white crowds. >> what do you have to lose? you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. hillary clinton is going to do nothing for the african-american worker. >> reporter: but now, trump is making a direct appeal. >> i fully understand that the african-american community has suffered from discrimination and that there are many wrongs that must still be made right. they will be made right. i want to make america
7:09 am
>> reporter: trump supporter ben carson showed him around his old neighborhood in southwest detroit. >> he did get straight "as." >> yes, he did. >> reporter: but while trump talked grades, his own appearance at the church got mixed reviews. >> his remarks were genuine. heartfelt. i think we have to give everybody a chance. >> i didn't know if he has a lot of knowledge on how to run this country. >> reporter: and sparked protests. [ crowd chanting ] >> all: no trump, no trump, no trump. >> reporter: the question now is whether any of this outreach can actually change opinions? dan and paula. >> thank you, mary. for more on all of this, let's get to abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz. she's in washington. she's hosting "this week" later this morning. given how deeply unpopular trump is with black voters is this kind of outreach that we saw in detroit likely to work? or is it, as many have argued,
7:10 am
suburban white voters that it's okay to vote for trump because it shows he's not a racist? because it shows he's not a racist? >> trump's polling at 1% of african-americans. members of the congregation he met yesterday, as you saw, did not seem swayed. then again, no republican candidate has broken past 15% of the black vote in 50 years since democratic president lyndon johnson signed the civil rights act and republican nominee barry goldwater opposed it. the difference is that trump is losing black voters and white college-educated voters. a key constituency. and as you say, many have been turned off by his harsh rhetoric, dan and paula. >> well, martha, so, trump is at rallies at that church. meantime, hillary's been surrounding herself with rich and powerful donors. "the new york times" headline said, where has hillary clinton been? ask the ultrarich. not to mention, martha, she
7:11 am
the inaccessibility to the public and the media, will it hurt her? >> it's really hard to say just yet. she's had two public events in the last two weeks. she's done nearly two dozen private fund-raisers. the clinton camp wants to take this last quiet moment of summer to raise big amounts of money and blast trump with negative ads in the fall. and they're also ceding the spotlight to him hoping he does more damage to himself by himself than they could. but as you say, the pressure is growing on clinton to be more forthcoming, more accessible, especially after the constant news on e-mails an foundation. >> martha, thank you. and we want to remind you all that martha has a big show coming up. she'll go one-on-one with democratic vice presidential nominee tim kaine. as well as donald trump's campaign manager, kellyanne conway. and martha wants to know what questions you have. tweet martha. we want to move now to a frightening scene at a tennessee fair. a ride called the moon raker went haywire.
7:12 am
dangling, some even falling off that ride. abc's adrienne bankert is here with what went wrong and how those kids are doing this morning. >> reporter: yes, this is yet another amusement ride malfunction this summer. this time in memphis. several children hurt in the opening week of the fair. this morning, several children injured after an accident at a memphis fairground. the festival, turning into a scene of panic. this ride at the delta fair malfunctioning. the safety bar released before the giant spinning disk had reached the ground. >> the ride operator panicked and hit a button that released the safety bars before the ride was actually in the cradle. >> reporter: parents saying they watched in terror, their kids dangling, gripping the rails. some falling from their seats. >> i really thought i was going to die, because the height, it was so high, and i couldn't hold on. >> what was going through my mind is, i'm not gonna die today.
7:13 am
children were rushed to the hospital. that ride, now shut down. >> we're going to bring in an independent ride operator to check the ride out one more time. >> reporter: this father says his 16-year-old daughter, faith, suffered a broken wrist and neck injury, landing her in this hospital bed. >> i've still got one in there that's in real bad shape. >> reporter: before the midway opened a few days ago, another ride at the delta fair had to be dismantled after two workers were shocked during installation. 1 of 2 adults treated at the hospital was the ride's operator, suffering from anxiety. all of those injured are recovering. and at least one safety official is looking into why the operator is able to release the safety restraints while the ride is still moving. tan and paula. >> that's something they really have to look into. should haven't happened. thank you. >> no problem. so let's send things to ron for the rest of the dish. dramatic pause. >> we didn't know who was supposed to say that. ron, what's up? >> #awkward moment. >> good morning to both of you, paula and dan.
7:14 am
