and ask how you can add comcast business securityedge. plus, for a limited time, ask how to get a $500 prepaid card when you upgrade. call today. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. this is "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm laura jarrett. we begin with the big breaking news on the storm in florida. elsa whipping the west coast of florida as a tropical storm with sustained winds of about 70 miles per hour. it is expected to make landfall over the next few hours in the big bend region. all day tuesday, elsa pounded the florida coast from key west
up past testampa. >> most of florida's west coast now under a tornado watch until 8:00 a.m. governor desantis placing 33 counties under a state of emergency. the tampa and sarasota airports are shut down right now and officials are urging residents stay indoors. duke energy has pre-staged 3,000 employees from other states in north florida ready to go and restore power after elsa passes. derek van dam is live in tampa. tell us what you are seeing there. >> reporter: good morning. we've scoured the area of tampa, we went to south tampa and bay shore boulevard, the areas that normally blood. and it looks as if they have been spared the worst from what was hurricane elsa last night when we arrived and the storm notably collapsed on its in many regards. but still a lot of concerns especially in some of these bands, these feeder bands we've talked about. these are bands of rain that get fed in from the gulf of mexico and they basically move over the
same location. so flood concerns still a possibility today. anywhere from cape coral to orlando, the i-4 corridor running north and south along interstate 75, remember brief spinup of tornadoes are also a potential today. a lot of times those tornadoes are weak, but there is a lot of pine in central florida, so it doesn't take much to topple trees and take down power lines. things are looking fairly normal here in tampa. we don't want to overcan int exaggerate the situation high tide has passed. but we are still noticing the center of the storm about 75 miles just to my north and west still has the potential to bring quite a bunch to that big bend region. fortunately that is a less populated area of florida. it is really as we work our way inland and we focus our attention into georgia, the carolinas and virginia, with the
5:00 a.m. update just hoisted new tropical storm warnings and i'm sure my colleague tyler will be covering all that. >> thank you so much for that. and speaking of georgia, governor kemp declaring a state of emergency bracing for elsa's impact. tropical storm warnings have been extended from just authority of brunswick to the state border between the carolinas. tyler mauldin is tracking this sam from the cnn weather center in atlanta for us. what should we expect? >> as derek just mentioned, the 5:00 a.m. update is in and tropical storm elsa has weakened a little bit more, it is now a 65-mile-per-hour storm. and it will move to the north and east. what we'll see here, it will make landfall later this morning as a weakening tropical storm, it will move into southeast georgia, on into the carolinas. and this is where we do have watches and warnings in effect.
you can see the blue here from southeast georgia all the way up north of charleston. that is a tropical storm warning. and then the yellow here from wilmington north, that is a tropical storm watch. as this system takes this journey up to the north, it will take all of that rainfall, all the thunderstorms that you saw on radar and it will spread it up the eastern sea board. and for that reason, coastal georgia and coastal south carolina is under a level 3 out of 4 threat for flash flooding today. we're also going to see it add some storm surge to this swampy region here. we could see 1 to 2 foot storm surge across the savannah area on into charleston. here is the timing for you. notice it does make landfall right around 9:00 a.m. and you can see all the thunderstorms pushing up the peninsula, and then spreading across southeast georgia on into south carolina, north carolina
and the virginias as with he will. once we get later on to the week, i want you to notice this, we will see ithe will. once we get later on to the week, i want you to notice this, we will see it suspicious up into the mid-atlantic and new england too. new england could see a 50-mile-per-hour storm right off its doorstep come friday. >> so definitely working its way up north. and to the pandemic now. president biden determined to get shots into reluctant arms. the white house fell short of getting 70% of adults vaccinated by the fourth of july, but with the delta variant on the rise, the president said anyone who is still hesitant should think twice. >> right now as i speak to you, millions of americans are still unvaccinated and unprotected. and because of that, their communities are at risk, their friends are at risk. and in today's briefing we discussed how the delta variant is already responsible for half of all cases in many parts of
this country. it is more easily transmissible, potentially more dangerous. >> we've reached the point of this pandemic where deaths from here on out are preventible deaths. kaitlan collins has more from the white house. >> reporter: good morning, president biden is making this renewed push for people to get vaccinated, something that he has obviously been paying for hospitals but now he says it has a new twist to it given the number of cases we're seeing with this new delta variant circulating throughout the united states. and even more alarming because just hours after biden spoke, the cdc says more than half of all the new cases in the united states are because of that delta variant. it is more transmissible, that is causing a grave concern for top health aides and also the president himself because he has been asking advicers about this in private meetings questioning what is the broad impact on the united states going to look like because of this variant. and the message that you have consistently seen from the white
house, if you are vaccinated, you are safe. it is not something that you have to worry about. but if you are not vaccinated, you have even more to worry about given just how highly the contagious the delta variant is and how prevalent it is in the united states. but i think the question also is how do we combat this, because yes, they sent out those response teams last week, word is that they are focused on essentially combatting the delta variant specifically. we have not seen that yet from the white house. but also a lot of the steps president talked about is steps that the administration is largely already taking, just saying that we'll reenforce them, but i do think at the end of the day when you look at things like the kaiser study that came out last yeek which does suggest that most americans who will get the vaccine have already done so, that raises a level of concern inside the white house about how that they will convince those millions of americans who have not yet gotten vaccinated to do so. the white house is kind of valgding line of talking about the variant but also marking the
progress that the country has made, almost a celebration where you saw president biden saying that he does believe by the end of the week he'll get to 160 million americans fully vaccinated, we're about 3 million short of that right now. and of course as a goal he set for july 4th, we'll be a few days late in actually getting the country onto get there. and right now president biden does not intend to set any new numerical goals when it comes to vaccinations. >> kaitlan collins, thank you so much. and it is not just the white house making this big push right now. west virginia's republican governor jim justice offering a few choice words for anyone in his state who still refuses to get vaccivaccinated. >> if you are out there in west virginia and you are not vaccinated today, what is the down side if all of us were vaccinated, do you not believe less people would die? and if you are not vaccinated, you're a part of the problem
rather than part of the solution. >> other republican governors are following suit as well imploring the unvaccinated in their states to get the program before the delta variant gets them. >> we are in a race and if we stopped right here and we didn't get greater percent of our population vaccinated, then we'll have trouble in the next school year and over the winter. >> the red states probably have a lot of people that, you know, are very, very conservative in their thinking. >> we're hopeful that reason will rule and people will see how effective these vaccines are. again, 95% of deaths since may have been amongst unvaccinated people in the state. so those are deaths that don't have to happen. hospitalizations that don't have to happen. it is very simple and very easy to get the vaccine now. >> these deaths do not have to happen. governor cox of utah says that the politicization of covid has led to a lot of bad decisions. and we've reached the preventable part of the pandemic
here. to the legal battle now overstates ending jobless benefits early, in maryland they are paying unemployment benefits for another ten days after losing several court battles to end the program early. governor hogan said that he was ending the programs on jiluly 3o get more people to return to work. one lawyer said that more than 300,000 marylands are in at least one insurance program and 85% will lose all of their support when the situations end. roughly 230,000 are waiting for payments while a lawsuit works its way through the court system. about half of the states are cutting off extra jobless benefits, the goal trying to push people back to the jobs market, but economists say it is only a part of the problem. you have child care, school and
health concerns, family responsibilities are holding millions of workers back. pandemic unemployment programs are set to expire anyway in early september in the states that have continued them. still ahead, the fbi releasing 11 brand new videos of the deadly riots on the capitol in january. we'll take a closer look at the disturbing new body cam footage. it's dry. there's no dry time. makes us wonder why we booked fifteen second ad slots. i'm so glad you're ok, sgt. houston. this is sam with usaa. do you see the tow truck? yes, thank you, that was fast. sgt. houston never expected this to happen. or that her grandpa's dog tags would be left behind. but that one call got her a tow and rental... ...paid her claim... ...and we even pulled a few strings. making it easy to make things right: that's what we're made for.

this... is what freedom sounds like. and this. this is what freedom smells like. ahhh, enjoy 30 days of open-road freshness. febreze car. six months after the capitol insurrection, the fbi has released 11 new disturbing videos of rioters attacking police. the fbi is hoping the new body cam videos will draw additional tips from the public.
so far the agency says it has received more than 200,000 digital media tips leading to the arrest of more than 535 suspects and charges range from assault to conspiracy. whitney wild has more on these videos and the efforts to shore up security around the u.s. capitol. >> reporter: roughly a dozen newly released videos show rioters' vicious attacks on police. in one, they are heard chanting our house. and in another, a man in a pro trump hat fights with law enforcement. and this footage released tuesday by the justice department captures the moment a rioter allegedly stole a badge and radio. capitol police say the agency is changing to adapt to the new threat landscape. they purchased more equipment, offered new training and now share intelligence with officers something glaringly absent before rioters attacked the capitol. but officers tell cnn they are
worried that they amount to marginal differences and feel that they are no better prepared today than they were in early sk january. since the insurrection, at least 75 officers have resigned. >> security is done by people. those officers have to be rested, trained, sharp with good information and well led. when more rale is bad, that mak it more difficult. >> reporter: former chief of capitol police worked on the first review of capitol security that generated more than 100 recommendations from hiring hundreds more officers to ramping up intelligence operations. >> we thought some of the recommendations could take upwards of a year or two. >> reporter: physical security around capitol hill is slimming. the national guard once a large presence is gone. the outer perimeter fence taken down and in coming days the inner perimeter fence will likely be folded up too.
long term fixes will ultimately require congress to pay for them. >> whitney, thank you for that report. president biden is also calling on americans to stand up to the lies that led to the january 6th insurrection. he still wants to see a bipartisan effort to investigate how it all happened saying that this was notes dissent, it was disorder and opposed a threat to our democracy. a sand reminder that there is nothing guaranteed about our democracy. manys s arepublicans still refuse to support any kind of an investigation. kevin mccarthy has yet to indicate which republicans if any he will name to the house panel. currently set to investigate the riots. adam kinzinger says that's a shame. >> i think the vast majority if not all of them, my colleagues, believe that this was a trump
incited insurrection. if you watch the videos, you get that tinge of giltquilt guilt. and it is easier to hope that this organically fixes the glitch and nobody is willing to step up. it is disappointing of course, it is sad. >> and in recent history one can recall the benghazi accountability for the republicans. and now right here in our own country, no accountability. danielle diaz is joining us. >> and as you discussed, kevin mccarthy has not yet appointed any republicans to this house committee that would investigate the january 6th insurrection. and most republicans don't want to touch this committee with a ten foot pole, they want nothing to do with this because they believe that it will be politically damaging for them ahead of the 2022 midterms. however there is one republican that is part of this committee appointed by house speaker nancy
pelosi, that is of course congresswoman liz cheney. and two other conservative fire brand republicans have expressed interest in joining this committee, matt gaetz and marjorie taylor greene. but mccarthy is not offering any hints as to where he stands on this, so we don't know how it will play out yet. >> assuming gaetz and greene are not interested in taking on donald trump's role in the insurrection, but -- >> they are looking for truth and accountability or social media headlines? >> and representative kim is donating an item to the smithsonian that he was reluctant to touch again. tell us more. >> yeah, it is remarkable. congressman kim became very infamous for this infamous photo where he is on his hands and knees cleaning up the trash
after the capitol riot before the joint congress resumed to certify the election. he was one of few people other than the custodians that got on their hands and knees and personally cleaned the capitol himself. and he is donating the suit he wore that day to the smithsonian as part of an exhibit that will reflect on what happened on january 6. he said that he couldn't touch that item, it brings back a lot of memories for him, so it is really part of a bigger issue that lawmakers are still processing what happened that day on january 6 when the rioters stormed the capitol. >> still a lot of trauma left over from that and i remember vivid pictures you took of people cleaning up somebody else's mess. thank you for all your reporting as usual. 21 minutes past the hour. decision for star sprinter sha'carri richardson is now in after her completely legal marijuana use. what she is saying next.

chris paul shines for the suns in game one of the nba finals. coy wire has more in this morning's "bleacher report." >> good morning. chris paul has waited 16 years to play in his first ever nba finals game but you would never know it by his performance last night. 16,000 fans on hand to see the first nba finals game in phoenix since michael jordan and the bulls won the title in '93. ten of the suns 16 players were
not even born at that time. giannis antetokounmpo back after missing multiple games with a knee injury. he finished with 20 points on the night, but the night belonged to 36-year-old paul. he scored half of his 32 points in the third quarter alone. paul joining hall of famers kareem abdul-jabbar and tim count duncan aged 30 or more to score 30 or more in a game. and suns taking game one. phil mickelson has won six majors, tom brady seven super bowl rings, but they do not make a winning team on the golf course. they lost to bryson dechambeau and aaron rodgers, the foursome raising $2.6 million for various charities. it seems like there is nothing that the quarterback turned jeopardy host aaron rodgers can't do, well, except for
talking about his future in green bay. >> we go way back. you can just tell me, i'll keep it a secret. i promise, i would not put it anywhere. >> i'll tell you this week in tahoe and then you can leak it. >> okay. i gotcha. dinner's on me. >> that will be a first. >> plenty of trash talking. the reigning nfl mvp has skipped the entire offseason program in a rift fueled by philosophical differences with the team. and former navy football captain will get a chance to be tom brady's teammate after all. he was granted permission to attend training camp with the bucs later this month. president biden saying that i'm confident cameron will represent
the navy well in the nfl just as he did as a standout athlete and class president at the naval academy. after his nfl career is over, he will continue to make us proud as an officer in the united states navy. cameron says he dreams of being the president of the united states one day. we did a feature on him and he carries three daily planners with him to stay organized when he was at school, one for sports, one academics and one detailing all of his duties being class president. that is the team of person that you can root for. >> love a type "a" personality. appreciate it. sha'carri richardson will miss the upcoming olympics now officially left off the roster for the u.s. track and fields relay team after the suspension for marijuana use. she tested positive for the drug after winning the individual 100 meter race. the drug is legal, but still a
banned substance under usatf rules. and that sparked criticism. richardson taking the news ss i stride tweeting she believes it has helped track and field saying you can't be mad at that. the situation just so sad. her mom died, the drug legal there. >> she is 21, she has a bright future, she is obviously a very talented athlete. i hope there are more olympics in her future. just ahead, tropical storm elsa barreling towards florida. and is expected to make landfall in just a few hours. we are live in florida. stay with us. ying a car 100% on. now we've created a brand-new way for you to sell your car. whether it's a year old or a few years old. we wanna buy your car. so go to carvana and enter your license plate answer a few questions. and our techno wizardry calculates your car's value and gives you a real offer in seconds. when you're ready, we'll come to you, pay you on the spot and pick up your car, that's it.

good morning. this is "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm laura jarrett. our breaking news this morning, the west coast of florida battered this morning by tropical storm elsa with winds just under 65 miles per hour. it is expected to make landfall in just a couple hours somewhere along the florida big bend area. >> all day tuesday high winds and heavy rains, most of the area still under a tornado watch until 8:00 a.m. 33 florida counties under a state of emergency right now. derek van dam is in tampa for us this morning where he has been
riding out the storm. what are the conditions like there for you? >> reporter: good morning, christine and laura. this is the nature of tropical storms. it changes so quickly. 20 minutes ago when we were talking i was enjoying just a warm breeze and now we had to run to the car to get our rain coat because one of these feeder bands has started to move over the tampa region. but we scoured the city before our live shots this morning, the typical areas that flood during tropical storms especially with high tide and passage of a hurricane or tropical storm, bay shore boulevard over my right shoulder, the south tampa area, none of that has flooded so that is good news. seems to be spared from the worse impacts. but regardless, there are still threats across the florida peninsula right through coastal georgia and into the carolinas today, including the threat of spinup tornados. that is also a consideration when you start moving from that
i-4 corridor from the coastal areas through orlando, there is a lot of pine within that region, so it doesn't take much for a tornado to topple a tree and take down electricity as well. speaking of electricity, 13,000 customers without power within the state of florida, mainly in dixie county. not here. you can see clearly we have power behind us, things seem to be status quo and normal around here with the passage of this storm really just to our north and west. big bend of florida, that is where we have storm surge potential today and potential for another 4 to 8 inches. by the way, there have been reports of other a foot of rain in some localized areas as the feeder bands set up along the coastal areas of florida. so that will cause local flooding within those areas. >> thank you so much for that. mean team rescue crews in surfside, florida finding more and more victims at the site of that terrible condo collapse now that the entire building is down. 36 people confirmed dead, but
the search continues for 109 still unaccounted for. the rest of the building was demolished sunday for the safety of the rescue workers there, but now those same workers are facing strong winds and rain brought on by hurricane elsa. leyla santiago has more from the scene in surfside. >> reporter: this is as close as we've been able to get to where the building collapsed. you can see the twisted metal, the concrete that has made a very, very tall pile. in fact on the other side is the ocean, and you can't even see that. you just see crews working and you hear the equipment. now, this of course is what we see, what we've been looking at, but it is what is underneath that is tearing apart this community. for families, it is knowing that their loved one is somewhere in there. for survivors, it is knowing that they will never again see things that they cherished from their apartments. the surfside mayor says that he has drafted a letter that could go out today and it is advising
all of surfside's ocean front condo boards and building owners of the next steps that the city's experts and engineer believer should be taken as a, quote, minimum stopgap measure to provide residents with a very basic level of confidence that their building is not obviously unsafe. another big factor here is the weather. given the wind and rain that we have seen here, that is obviously a challenge for crews as they continue to dig. lightning has caused several pauses as the search continues here in surfside. >> leyla, thank you for that report. overseas there are new concerns in the wake of last week's meet u.s. withdrawal from bagram air base. cnn has learned thousands of police they ares most said to be al qaeda and taliban terrorists remain at the prison on bagram
base now under the sole control of a began authorities. anna coren is live in kabul following this for us. who are these detainees and how will this all work now that the us has mostly pulled out of the region? >> reporter: certainly there is concern that bagram air base may be a target for the taliban, but what is much more pressing is that the taliban has claimed its first proceed vins provincial city, it is in the authnorth of country. and we've seen video, spoken to local journalists saying that there has been a prison break, hundreds have been released from that prison. there is video that we have seen of the taliban being cheered as they drive through the main streets of the city. we're also hearing of tdefectios
coming from the police, from the nds as well. we're hearing from the local journalists it could be a few dozen. the taliban is claiming that it could be as many as 200. so this is a very fluid situation, but certainly that province now gone to the taliban. the other province that is of d great concern at the moment is in the northeast. this borders china and pakistan. and most of the districts have fallen but the capital there is under siege by the taliban. we know that the government has sent up its army as well as commanders, reinforcements going up to launch counterattacks, but from that we've seen, the local video that has been sent to us by journalists on the ground, it does seem that the taliban has claimed a great deal of
territory. the other development today is that peace talks of all things were held between the afghan government and the taliban in tehran, hosted by the iranian foreign minister who said that the future of afghanistan is now in the hands of its people. >> we appreciate you staying on this for us. come back as you get more details. 42 past the hour. this morning city democrats have a nominee for mayor. cnn projects eric adams has narrowly defeated kathryn garcia. let's get more on this from harry enten. >> reporter: cnn projects that eric adams isic nominee. if you look at the rinch preferences, adams was ahead of the rest of the field clearly with just a little bit more than
30% of the vote just as he was on election night two weeks ago. of course new york city was going to be uses rank choice voting, first time that they did so. and with those results this, what we see in the final round is that eric adams barely held on to his lead over katherine x gar garcia. and with so few votes to be left to be counted, he was declared the winner. he sold a tough on crime message and if you look at recent polling, it showed that more new york city democratic primary voters wanted police on the subway than not and creime was the issue he could ride to victory. >> and eric adams will be live on "new day" in the 8:00 hour.

pressure is mounting on president biden to lift covid-related travel restrictions at u.s. borders. cross border travel has been suspended for more than a year now. local players are pressing immigration officials for answer as given the increase in vaccination rates and downward trend on infections. priscilla alvarez is covering this for us. now that air travel has basically opened back up to mostly normal, how does the biden administration justify keeping the restrictions? >> that is the question they are getting from border players and lawmakers. and there doesn't seem to be an answer yet. the current is the of travel restrictions on nonessential travel expires july #21. but the striksadministration ha indicated when that might lift. border players say their
