10:01 am
getting in towards the hurricane season september 11, this week we have tropical storm make landfall in florida and bring saturating rain across parts of the northeast that will be impacted by what was hurricane henri and now tropical storm henri anand hurricane grace made to lynn falls in mexico the second one as a major hurricane and really active. and nothing intimate that were watching was get that out of the way. this is what were looking at from henri most of the moisture, in fact all of the moisture from the west side of the storm not on the east side the rain that is good news for boston and cape cod but the storm surge coming in buzzards bay fortunately not coinciding with the high tide cycle which is really good news. you notice all the moisture across much of connecticut is rain and windy wins 30 - 40 miles per hour and that will cause potentially some of the trees due to go down because of the leaves on them and
10:02 am
because of the saturated ground and now the wind. trees potentially falling and causing power outage over the next week potentially we should watch to see people get their power restored. the storm has moved over warm water that's why it became hurricane henri but this morning relatively cooler water water temperature about 10 degrees lower than what you need to sustain hurricane and that's why we sell this weakening to a 60-mile an hour storm before making landfall and that's what we saw the hurricane warnings disappear tropical storm warnings the entire state of connecticut in tropical storm warnings in the storm about to move really slowly over the past hours it takes about 12 hours to reverse from southeast to northwest connecticut and towards western parts of massachusetts and another 12 hours before it makes a right-hand turn, 24 hours were still talking about the storm sitting relatively in the same spot that means a lot of moisture falling a long time and
10:03 am
whatever the rain been set up we will see significant flooding i fear notice flood warning is in effect across parts of vermont, new hampshire and eastern areas of pennsylvania all of new jersey were we saw heavy rain this morning but i think we will see bands moving to the rainfall totals we will definitely see 5 - 8-inch range of additional rainfall and some spots have already seen six to 8 inches of rain getting 2 - 3 and that'll exacerbate the flooding. from the center of the storm all the moisture falling to the west side normally we see the right side of storms where we have the moisture, not the case here the storm is transitioning from a tropical storm to a regular storm and when that happens all the energy filled out and we start to see the rainfall spread out as well. there you go a lot of rain ahead of us that includes like the hudson river valley in the mountainous terrain and will see
10:04 am
a little bit more significant stream flooding as well. mike: rick leading us off, many thanks. live pictures coming from rhode island where tropical storm henri mainly in fall moments ago, there are concerns up and down the eastern seaboard as you just heard from rick concerns about interior sections as well and more on the latest conditions of the eye of tropical storm henri comes on short alex hogan is live, how are the conditions right now. >> we note the state has deployed 500 national guard members and thousands of state troopers to deploy across the state and this is one of the hardest hit areas in henri's path, this morning we saw heavy downpour and there is quite a wall something we have not seen through out the day but the torrential rain causing flooding into nearby roads, the storm as
10:05 am
far up as were restating right now we have some lifeguards that are grabbing some of what we can see in sending people out to the water they have been telling anyone stay away from the water, do not go into that water and of course the riptide are the main concern we talk to the lifeguards and they say even though the waves are retrieving and might look more safe if anything. >> everywhere all over the place there is a lot of current and rips and if you're not a regular swimmer, pool does not count people think i swim all the time i get in the pool, the pool is great exercise but it is not the ocean and dealing with the dangers of the rips. >> the rain causing flooding throughout the tri-state area in the northeast, take a look at
10:06 am
the video from new jersey heavy flooding in the streets even pouring into nearby businesses and likely underground, that is something we will continue to see not only just today but through tomorrow 42 million americans are currently under storm morning and last time a category one hit this part of new york within 1985 it is a sigh of relief and for residents who will not have to go through that but of course the storm brings many other dangers, as we mentioned flooding storm surge and power outages, right now png says 1800 customers are without power and that could continue throughout the day. we will continue to monitor this. mike: alex hogan live on long island, thank you very much. connecticut is bracing for flooding from henri after the storm came ashore a short distance from where brian yanez says in the heart of
10:07 am
connecticut. what is the latest. >> good afternoon we're in old saybrook connecticut 36 miles to the west of where tropical storm henri came on shore in westerly rhode island right on the border between rhode island and connecticut, the conditions have gotten a lot better within the last hour, the bulk has passed, you can see the visibility, this is the connecticut river that goes into the long island town, much more calm, visibility you can actually see in the other side of the river which is a good development and you can take a look i can give you a sense this is where some of the books are tied up and you can see their barely moving if at all, that gives you a sense of how conditions in southeastern connecticut have improved, the real concern if you take a look at the video the area we were just that an hour ago of how bad it was, as it was coming on we are looking at 45 - 60-mile our
10:08 am
guest to - 4 inches of rain in this area in six or more depending, the storm headed towards the hartford area which is capital connecticut in southeastern connecticut did get hammered over the last couple of hours in the big concern is about the power, you will see this photo a tree the fell on the power line that can happen very easily in fact the tropical storm last year knocked over 8800 trees which knocked out power to 750,000 people, right now 22000 customers are without power in connecticut and on top of that we have over 80000 customers in rhode island without power, initially the concern was a storm surge, you are talking about the storm coming on shore when high tide was hitting your 11:00 a.m. the west northwest wind pulled the water away from the shoreline and connecticut and other real concern is the inland flooding the streams and rivers getting too much water in the urban area
10:09 am
of hartford connecticut getting the water and flash flooding as a store makes its way towards the westin away from the southeastern connecticut but overall i would say fema is ready they have 700% already with water and tarps and generators but so far considering what they were expecting with the power they set up for 69% of customers would be without power this far it looks like that will be under at least in this area considering the numbers and we will see as a storm continues to slow down and rain in the western parts of connecticut as it moves up. mike: brian yanez live on the coastline, thank you very much ♪ ♪ turning out to the crisis in afghanistan president biden sets up "face the nation" and the world on the situation in afghanistan as 4:00 o'clock eastern time for coverage here this as afghan refugees begin to

their keeping pressure on the taliban to allow state passage for americans and allies. >> there have been incidents of people having tough encounters with the taliban as we learn about those incidents we certainly go back and engage the taliban leadership and press home to them that our expectation is that they allow our people with the appropriate credentials to get through the checkpoints. >> the white house does not have a complete count of how many americans are still stranded national security advisor jake sullivan said the u.s. is in direct contact with americans and others to guide them to the airport at the right time into the right place, there also moving people out of the airport to reduce overcrowding where several afghans have been killed and the crowds of people surging, sullivan says it's been a challenge to get a full count of how many americans are left. >> we know it's roughly a few thousand but let me explain to

checkpoints across the city and now there are very serious intelligence reports indicating the isis could target u.s. citizens who are tried to make their way to the airport give a very difficult situation in the taliban who took over the entire country and got weaponry, machinery and more manpower by prisons across the country, another are american soldiers on the ground once again trying to ensure that american citizens and the afghans can get to safety and it really appears like a recipe for disaster because you have weaponry that the taliban now controls you have not only taliban fighters but also members of al-qaeda free from prison and you have this innocent civilian population trying to desperately get to safety. it is moving along but people are frustrated and they want to get out and they are concerned

10:38 am
weren't going to attack us and they gave us 5000 other taliban soldiers in removing sanctions and they gave them the ability to take this to the un security council there is a lot of blame to go around but if we move past the political fallout and look at what were going to do to get these people out of afghanistan and get them relocated and receive the taliban that is a terrorist organization. >> here is president biden from friday. >> we have no indication that we haven't been able to get in kabul to the airport. we made an agreement with the taliban this far they allow them to go through it's in their interest for them to go through. mike: forces on the ground suggest there is major trouble getting to the taliban and into the airport, what is your assessment? >> i'm not surprised that that is happening what is happened we put the american people there and in afghanistan in a dangerous situation. we need to have an american first policy. we need to get the americans out first, then what we need to do is concentrate on our allies
