PROBLEMS FOR FLORIDA GEORGIA AND OTHER STATES THERE AS WELL RIGHT NOW A CATEGORY FOUR STORM YOU’RE TAKING A LIVE LOOK IN FLORIDA RIGHT NOW WELCOME EVERYONE HERE TO NEWS NOW SPECIAL COVERAGE TODAY OF HURRICANE DORIAN. RUN WHO JOINING ME NOW ALL RIGHT SO IT. I’M SURE YOU WOKE UP MIKE ON SATURDAY MORNING LIKE I DID TO WHAT APPEARED TO BE. ORIGINALLY A LITTLE BIT OF GOOD NEWS THAT THAT TRACK WAS REALLY STARTING TO PROJECT. LIKE IT WOULD START TO IT WOULD GO OVER THE BAHAMAS IT HAS DONE FROM WHAT WE’RE SEEING SOME OF THE EARLY REPORTS JUST AN IMMENSE AMOUNT OF DAMAGE IN THAT POPULAR. ISLAND GET AWAY BUT THEN IT WOULD START TO TURN NORTH AND TURN NORTH AT A PRETTY GOOD CLIP. SO THAT MOST OF THE MODELS RIGHT MOST OF THESE CAN BE COMPUTER MODELS SHOW IT REALLY STAYING JUST ALONG THE FLORIDA COAST WITHOUT. POTENTIALLY WITHOUT COME IN AND MAKE AN ADDRESS AND I WISH I COULD SHOW THE TRACK RIGHT NOW THIS IS NOT COMING UP ON OUR MONITOR RIGHT NOW OKAY BUT AND THIS IS WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW AND TAKE A LOOK AT THIS OTHER SHOT THAN RON. OKAY THIS. LOOKS LIKE A NICE BEACH DAY THERE YOU KNOW. THIS IS THE CRAZY THING THIS IS NOW ON THE FAR SIDE THE GULF COAST SIDE AND- I THERE’S ONLY ONE MODEL THAT I’VE SEEN MIKE OF ABOUT TWENTY YEARS SO THAT ARE OUT THERE. THAT EVEN HAS IT OF DOING REALLY MUCH OF ANYTHING ON THE GULF COAST INSIDE SO I MEAN IT IS LOOKING LIKE THAT PART OF FLORIDA WILL BE SPARED. BUT PEOPLE JUST SHOULDN’T FEEL LIKEON THE ATLANTIC SIDE THAT THEY’RE OUT OF THE WOODS AT ALL JUST BECAUSE IT DOESN’T MAKE A DIRECT HIT IT IS GONNA HUGS THE COASTLINE. IT DID JUST GET DOWNGRADED. TO A CAP FOR BUT MIKE THAT MEANS A HUNDRED FIFTY FIVE. IT’S UNFATHOMABLE TO ME WE HAD SOME WEATHER LAST YEAR WHERE WE HAD A DAY. WHERE THEY CLOCKED ALMOST SEVENTY MILE AN HOUR WINDS AT SKY HARBOR. AND I KNOW MOST OF US PROBABLY THOUGHT IF WE WERE HOME THAT DAY WHICH I WAS THAT ALL THE TREES IN YOUR YARD WE’RE GONNA GET BLOWN DOWN AT SEVENTY MILES IN THE US. YEAH WE’RE TALKING ABOUT MORE THAN DOUBLE THAT LEVEL OF WIND ACTION. SO THE POTENTIAL NUMBER ONE FOR THE WIND IS GOING TO BE DEVASTATING AND THE POTENTIAL FOR THE STORM SURGE. WHICH THEY ARE SAYING BY PROBABLY TOMORROW AND STARTING ALL THE WAY DOWN AROUND WEST PALM BEACH. COMING UP THROUGH COCOA BEACH FORT PIERCE. DAYTONA BEACH AND ALL THE WAY UP TO JACKSONVILLE THE POTENTIAL EVEN ALONG THAT PART OF THE COAST LINE IS FOR WAYS THAT COULD BE. WELL ABOVE A HUNDRED MILES AN HOUR HOUR AND A STORM SURGE THAT COULD BE FOUR TO SEVEN FEET. YOU KNOW FOUR FEET YOU THINK ABOUT THAT ABOUT MIDWAY UP ON YOUR BODY A LITTLE HIGHER. BUT THIS THINK IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN NEXT TO A SEVEN FOOT MAN. NO THAT’S RIGHT RIGHT AND IT’S SO FLAT ALONG THE FLORIDA COAST LINE BOY OH BOY ABSOLUTELY SO WE ARE GOING TO COVER THIS HERE FOR YA HURRICANE DORIAN WE ARE GOING TO BE GETTING NEWS CONFERENCES THROUGHOUT THE DAY. LET’S TAKE YOU TO JUST ABOUT AN HOUR AGO THE FLORIDA GOVERNOR DOING IS FIRST UPDATE YEP OF THE MORNING WHAT IS GOING TO BE A VERY BUSY DAY YOU KNOW OR THEM YEAH AND HE’S BEEN DOING A GOOD JOB MIKE STAND RIGHT ON TOP OF IT I KNOW THEY’VE BEEN NEWS CONFERENCES NOW UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE JUST THE WAY THIS IS STARTING TO LOOK. IS IT COULD REALLY CREATE HAVOC TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK TALKING ABOUT THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. IN NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA SO YOU KNOW YOU’VE GOT EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAMS THEY’RE THERE TO KEEP ACLOSE EYE ON THINGS. YOU’VE GOT GOVERNORS IN THOSE STATES THAT ARE. TRYING TO INFORM THE PUBLIC AS MUCH AS THEY CAN. IT’S JUST GONNA CUT A VERY WIDE SWATH. RIGHT ALONG HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF. MILES OF OUR NATION’S ATLANTIC COASTLINE TRULY SO WE’RE HOPING FOR THE VERY BEST FOR EVERYBODY THERE IN THE STORM’S PATH LET’S HEAR FROM THE GOVERNOR RIGHT NOW. THAT DONE IS THAT WHICH HAPPENS IS GOING TO BE CRITICAL FOR IMPACTS ON IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA BUT WE ARE EAST COAST CERTAINLY IS WITHIN THE COHNS STILL. AND PEOPLE NEED TO REMAIN VIGILANT IF YOUR ORDER TO EVACUATE YOU NEED TO DO THAT FROM PALM BEACH COUNTY ALL THE WAY UP TO NASSAU. THE FLORIDA GEORGIA BORDER ALL THOSE COASTAL COUNTIES HAVE ISSUED EVACUATION ORDERS AND IT’S IMPORTANT THAT RESIDENTS HE DOES CALLS YOU KNOW GET OUT NOW WHILE YOU HAVE TIME WELL THERE’S FUEL AVAILABLE AND YOU’LL BE SAFE ON THE ROADS. AND OF COURSE YOU CAN GO TO FLORIDA DISASTER DOT ORG SLASH INFO FOR ALL OF ACTUATION UPDATES I JUST SPOKE THIS MORNING WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU HE’S FULLY ENGAGED IN THIS AND YOU KNOW JUST REITERATED THAT. HE’S GOING TO PROVIDE WHATEVER RESOURCES WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO A TO WEATHER DORIAN FEMA IS FULLY ENGAGED OBVIOUSLY THIS IS THAT STORM THAT CAN IMPACT MULTIPLE STATES AT THIS POINT BUT BY FEMA IS FULLY ENGAGED HERE IN FLORIDA. AND WE APPRECIATE THAT WERE OF COURSE CONCERNED ABOUT UP POWER RESTORATION ONCE THE STORM PASSES FLORIDA POWER AND LIGHT HAS MOST OF THESE COUNTIES IN TERMS OF THE POWER AND THEY’VE ASSEMBLED APPROXIMATELY SEVENTEEN THOUSAND PERSONNEL. THAT ARE PRE STAGED AN AND READY I TO RESPOND AND AS SOON AS THE FIRST BANDS A SEVERE WEATHER HEAD THEY WILL COME IN AFTER THAT TO RESTORE POWER AROUND THE CLOCK. BECAUSE WE WOULD ADDING THEY UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS WE WILL OBVIOUSLY BE ASSISTING WITH OUR ASSETS WHETHER IT’S CLEARING ROADS VEGETATION WHATEVER WE CAN DO TO HELP OUT HELP THAT HAPPEN. THERE BEEN SEVENTY TWO NURSING HOMES AND ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES ALONG THE COAST THAT HAVE BEEN EVACUATED SOME FLORIDA HOSPITALS HAD BEGUN EVACUATING OR MAKING PLANS TO EVACUATE. THESE INCLUDE ADVAN HEALTH IN NEW SMYRNA BEACH. VOLUSIA COUNTY CAPE CANAVERAL IN BREVARD CLEVELAND CLINIC SOUTH IN MARTIN COUNTY.

YEAH WE HAVE PEOPLE MONITORING THAT ALL THE TIME WE HAVE A OUT PEOPLE IN A VARIETY OF AGENCIES THAT COULD THEN RESPOND ACCORDINGLY AND OBVIOUSLY WE WANT TO DO THAT. WE HAVE THE GAS STATIONS ALONG THE EVACUATION ROUTES WE’VE CONFIRMED ARE GOING TO REMAIN OPEN SOME OF THE GAS STATIONS IN THE EVACUATION ZONES YOU MAY SEE SOME OF THOSE START TO CLOSE SOON. BUT THE ONES ON THE ROUTES ARE GOING TO REMAIN OPEN I’VE EXPANDED THE SUSPENSION OF TOLLS TO INCLUDE ROADS IN AND AROUND JACKSONVILLE LIKE THE FIRST COAST EXPRESSWAY. AND THE I. TWO NINETY FIVE EXPRESS LANE AND OF COURSE WE SUSPENDED TOLLS ON A NUMBER OF ROADS IN FLORIDA YESTERDAY ALSO THE CENTRAL FLORIDA EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY. HAS SUSPENDED TOLLS ON A NUMBER OF ROADS IN AND AROUND CENTRAL FLORIDA. NOW THE FOLLOWING FIVE PORTS HAVE BEEN CLOSED MIAMI EVERGLADES FOR PEERS PALM BEACH IN PORT CANAVERAL. JACKSONVILLE AND FOR AN INDIAN NOW ARE IN CONDITION YANKEE OBVIOUSLY AS THE STORM MOVES NORTH YOU KNOW THEIR STATUS COULD CHANGE BUT AS THE STORM MOVES NORTH WE ANTICIPATE SOME OF THE SOUTHERN PORTS. ARE RE OPENING WE’RE STILL MONITORING TRAFFIC AND I HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY I IN TERMS OF EVACUATIONS OUT OF TERMS OF EVACUATION TRAFFIC. I PRETTY MUCH. WHAT WE EXPECTED SO THIS IS I’VE BEEN FRESH. TRADING I KNOW FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE BECAUSE THIS SEEMS LIKE WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS FOR A LOT LONG TIME BUT WE ARE IN A SITUATION WHERE THE STORM IS STALLING VERY CLOSE TO OUR COAST. IT IS GOING TO MAKE A MOVEMENT AND THE MOVEMENT THAT IT MAKES IS GONNA HAVE A LOT OF IMPACT ON ■tOOR RADIANCE AND SO PLEASE. I LISTEN TO THE INSTRUCTIONS HE THE INSTRUCTIONS DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO KEEP YOU AND YOUR FOR YOUR FAMILY SAY. TAKE SOME QUESTIONS. ALL OF THE NURSING HOMES THAT. YOU DIDN’T KNOW WHETHER THEY AND- UPDATED WITH. WITH GENERATORS ONE OUT THAT THOSE. THOSE FACILITIES ARE NOW SAY THOUSAND WE’VE- GOTTEN THE PATIENTS HAVE. I MEAN ARE THEY TO POSITIONS. THE BEST VISION. IMAGE CONTINUE TO GIVE US UPDATES AND SO YOU IF YOU HAVE A GENERATOR. AND SOMETHING’S WRONG WITH THE GENERATOR YOU NEED TO TELL US THAT YOU NEED TO PUT THOSE UPDATES AND BY. YOU KNOW THEY’VE ALL EITHER INDICATED OUT A GENERATOR OR A PLAN TO EVACUATE. BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT’S CONSTANTLY BEING MONITORED BY OCT GUIDE SOME OF OUR OTHER STATE OFFICIALS. ANOTHER THING THAT DATA AKA IS GOING TO BE DOING AS- YOU WE HAVE A NUMBER OF HOSPITALS OBVIOUSLY ON THE- EAST COAST OF FLORIDA. WE’RE OBVIOUSLY CONCERNED ABOUT ALL OF THEM BECAUSE IT’S A SENSITIVE THING BUT SOME OF THE BIGGER. OUR CORPORATE HOSPITALS. PROBABLY HAVE MORE RESOURCES TO HANDLE THIS AND SO. OCT HAS BEEN FOCUSING ON. GETTING UPDATES FROM OFFERING ASSISTANCE SOME OF THE INDEPENDENT HOSPITALS WHICH MAY NOT HAVE. AS MANY RESOURCES AND SO THEY’VE BEEN VERY PROACTIVE ON THAT AND I APPRECIATE WHAT MERRY MAY HE WAS DOING. THE HOSPITALS ARE IN FACT WAITING ARE YOU HEARING THE ARE COMPLETELY EVACUATING AND DO THEY SEND. THEIR PATIENTS AND WANT TO THE INTERIOR COUNTIES THAT. I THINK IT’S A MIX. ENGINEER TO PROBABLY NO MORE DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK ON THAT. I THANK YOU GOVERNOR SO IT’S A MIX HE TOPPLES DOING DIFFERENT THINGS DEPENDING UPON WHERE THEY’RE LOCATED THE TYPE OF BUILDING AND WHAT. WHAT TOTAL LEVEL SURGE. THEY THEY MIGHT BE EXPECTING SO SUMMER ARE OBVIOUSLY. MOVING OUT THERE MOST CRITICAL PATIENTS A LOT OF TIMES THEY HAVE. OBVIOUSLY SISTER FACILITIES ARE THEY HAVE AMMO USE IN PLACE WITH OTHER FACILITIES. HELLO IS THIS STORM IMPACTED TOURISM NUMBERS OVER THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND WE HAVE ANY IDEA HOW. IT IT’S TOO SOON TO KNOW EXACT NUMBERS BUT I MEAN OBVIOUSLY IF. I THINK WE STARTED TO SEE POSSIBILITIES OF THIS EARLIER IN THE WEEK LAST WEEK. I REMEMBER INITIALLY WERE LIKE WELL IT’S PROBABLY GONNA RUN OVER THE MOUNTAINS OF HISPANIOLA BREAK OUT AND THEN EVERYONE AGO AND DIDN’T HAPPEN SO. SO I THINK YOU’RE OBVIOUSLY GOING TO SEE SOME EFFECTS OF THAT. BUT AT THE SAME TIME I THINK THE FACT THAT IT’S TAKEN ANNIE’S WORD TRACK. PEOPLE THAT HAD PLANNED ON BEING SOME PLACE IN NORTHWEST FLORIDA OR WHATEVER PROBABLY YOU KNOW WEREN’T AFFECTED IT ALSO SO WE’LL WE’LL FIGURE ALL THAT OUT TO LOOK AT THE END OF THE DAY. YEAH I WANTED AS ROBUST TOURISM IS POSSIBLE BUT MY MOST IMPORTANT PRIORITY IS THAT THAT FLORIDIANS ARE SAFE AND THAT. AND THAT WE’RE DOING WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO BE ABLE TO ASSESS AFTER THE FACT AND- THIS IS STORM THAT IS. A RECORD IN TERMS OF THE HUNDRED EIGHTY FIVE MILE PER HOUR IMPACT OF THE BAHAMAS. AND IT’S VERY VERY CLOSE TO OUR SHORES I APPRECIATE THE TRACKS TO KEEP IT OFF THE SHORE. BUT OUT BUT WE’RE GONNA HAVE WE’RE GONNA HAVE SOME IMPACTS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. AND THAT’S REALLY I THINK GOD THE MAIN CONCERN WILL BE ABLE TO PEOPLE ARE GONNA WANT TO COME TO FLORIDA CAN BE ALL TIME TO DO ALL THAT STUFF AND WE GOT A LOT OF GREAT THINGS GOING ON THE ECONOMY. BUT BUT SAFETY REALLY IS NUMBER ONE SO WE ARE ON. OBVIOUSLY GONNA BE MONITORING THIS THERE THE REST OF THE DAY YOU KNOW WE HAVE A LOT OF RESOURCES READY TO GO THE FADS OR HAVE BEEN GREAT THEY HAVE A LOT OF RESOURCES READY TO GO.

AT A CATEGORYA HUNDRED AND FIFTY FIVE MILES PER HOUR HI EVERYONE MIGHT PAY SHARE WELCOME BACK TO NEWS NOW WILL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THAT IF WE GET ANY MORE UPDATES OUT OF FLORIDA OR OTHER STATES. WILL BRING A TEAR RIGHT HERE ON NEWS NOW BUT LET’S GO OUT TO NEW HAMPSHIRE WHERE BERNIE SANDERS DOWN THE ROAD. THE TWENTY TWENTY. WHOLE COMMUNITIES. OUR COUNTRY GOING TODAY IS THE DAY FROM ALL OF THEM. IT GOES WITH OUT WITHOUT SAYING THAT I’M HERE IN RAYMOND TODAY. OUGHT TO ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT. THE WIN THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND WITH YOUR HELP WE’RE GOING TO DO JUST THAT. AND THE IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT I NEED YOUR HELP. TO WIN THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION. AND IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THE GAVEL WE ARE GOING TO DEFEAT. MOST DANGEROUS PRESIDENT IN THE MODERN HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY DONALD TRUMP. AND THERE’S BEEN IS BEN JONES TOLD YOU. IN POLL AFTER POLL IN FACT I DON’T THINK THERE HAS BEEN A CREDIBLE HOLD ON. IN THE LAST FEW. WHICH HAS NOT HOW DOES MY HEAD OF TROUBLE A COUPLE JUST CAME UT THE OTHER DAY WHICH OUT OF FOURTEEN POINTS AHEAD OF DROP SO. ALL IT IS CERTAINLY A MOMENT IN HISTORY. WHEN WE HAVE GOT TO GET RID OF ALL OF THAT PERSON IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND WITH YOUR HELP THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO. BUT. THIS CAMPAIGN IS MORE. THE IN JOKES ABOUT THE FEEDING TROUBLE. AND WHAT I’M GOING TO NEED YOUR HELP ON. IS NOT SHOWS THE ELECTION GOOD NEED YOUR HELP. THE DAY AFTER ALL WE ALL ARE INAUGURATED. AND WE HOPE TO HAVE A LOT OF BUSES FROM THE WINDOW IN COMMON DOWN TO WASHINGTON. WE NEED YOUR HELP. AND I DON’T KNOW THE DOES ANY OF THE CAMPAIGN BUT IT’S GOING TO ASK THIS OF YOU. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP TO TAKE ON THE GREED. AND CORRUPTION. OF THE CORPORATE ELITE. WHO HAVE BEEN AT WAR AGAINST THE WORKING CLASS OF THIS COUNTRY FOR THE LAST FORTY FIVE YEARS. IS ALL OF YOU KNOW. A MESSAGE OF OUR CAMPAIGN. IS US NOT ME. AND THAT MESSAGE IS MORE THAN A BUMPER STICKER WELL I THINK WE WILL HAVE A BUMPER STICKER WITH IT. IT’S ACTUALLY A FAIRLY PROFOUND MESSAGE. AND IT SAYS TWO THINGS IT SAYS THAT OUR UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT YOU MEAN LIFE IS ABOUT. IS NOT ONE IN WHICH WE STEP ON OUR FRIENDS AND OUR NEIGHBORS AND EVERYBODY IN OUR COMMUNITY IN ORDER TO MAKE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT WE LAW YOU WE CHEAT WE STILL. ANOTHER WORDS SOMEBODY LIKE A DONALD TRUMP. THAT’S NOT OUR VISION. OF WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT TO DO TERRIBLE THINGS TO BE SELFISH AND GREEDY IN ORDER TO MAKE A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY. OUR VISION OF HUMAN LIFE IS THAT WE ARE IN THIS TO GET ALL. THE STRUGGLE FOR DECENCY THE STRUGGLE FOR ALL OF US TO HAVE A GOOD LIFE. AND THAT MEANS THAT MY FAMILY HAS GOT TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR FAMILY HAS GOT TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT MY FAMILY AND WE TRIED TO CREATE A SOCIETY WHERE NOBODY IS LEFT BEHIND. THAT’S WHAT COMMUNITY MEANS. THAT’S WHAT COMMUNITYMEANS SO THAT IS WHAT I BELIEVE I KNOW MOST OF YOU BELIEVE IN. BUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT US NOT ME THERE’S ANOTHER POINT THAT WE’RE MAKING HERE WHICH IS A POINT YOU’RE NOT GONNA SEE MUCH ON TV. OR IN THE NEWSPAPERS. AND THAT IS THE UNDERSTANDING THAT NO PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES NOT BERNIE SANDERS OR ANY BODY ELSE. CAN DO IT ALONE. ALL RIGHT. BECAUSE WE ALL TAKING ALL ON A CORPORATE A LEAK. BUT AS OWN BELIEVE WILL BOWL WELL AND HOW WALL AND RESOURCES. AND IF WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT TRANSFORMING THIS COUNTRY THANK CREATING A GOVERNMENT AND THEN THE ECONOMY THAT WORKS FOR ALL OF US NOT JUST THE 1% THE ONLY WAY WE DO IT IS WHEN MILLIONS OF PEOPLE COME TOGETHER AND ARE PREPARED TO STAND UP AND FIGHT BACK AND THAT IS PRECISELY. WHAT THIS CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT. SO IN OTHER WORDS ALL I COULD GIVE YOU A TEN HOUR SPEECH I TELL YOU ALL OF THE WONDERFUL THINGS BUT I WANT TO DO WE DON’T BLOG YEAH THAT’S GREAT GREAT IDEA BEAUTIFUL THAT’S WHAT WE NEED. IT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING UNLESS WE ARE PREPARED TO TAKE ON THE GREED AND. CORRUPTION OF THE CORPORATE ELITE. AND THE POLITICIANS IN WASHINGTON AND THAT IS WHAT THE POLITICAL REVOLUTION IS ABOUT IT IS BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER BLACK AND WHITE AND LATINO NATIVE AMERICAN ASIAN AMERICAN GAY AND STRAIGHT. THOSE OF US BORN IN AMERICA THOSE OF US WHO IMMIGRATED TO AMERICA STANDING TO GET. THE TELL THE CORPORATE ELITE THAT THIS COUNTRY BELONGS TO ALL OF US NOT JUST WHAT THE CAMPAIGN. AND ALL OF THIS. ON THIS LABOR DAY. LET US REMEMBER A VERY PROFOUND STATEMENT I DISCOVER THE SELECTION AVAILABLE FOR DISCOVERED IT JUST LAST MONTH MY LITTLE GRANDSON SOMEBODY GAVE A MUDDY A SIGN THEY HELD UP THE SIGN UP POWER FREEZING UP PROBABLY GOT A LITTLE BIT WRONG. TO QUOTE FROM NELSON MANDELA. AND NELSON MANDELA SAID SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT HE SAID. EVERYTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL IT IS DONE EVERYTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL IT IS THOUGHT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IT MEANS THAT THE AUDIENCE THAT WE TALK ABOUT TODAY. PEOPLES ALWAYS A RADICAL YOU CAN’T DO IT THEIR EXTREME NOBODY IN AMERICA WHAT SOME. UNTIL THEY GET DONE AND THEN EVERYBODY ELSE COMMON SENSE. OF COURSE WE SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM. ALL RIGHT. AND I’LL GIVE YOU JUST A FEW EXAMPLES OF WHAT THAT MEANS IT WAS SEEING IT WITH OUR OWN EYES. FOUR YEARS AGO I CAME TO KNOW HIM SHOW. AND I SAID I GOT ALL RADICAL CRAZY WILD IDEA BY GOD THAT MAYBE IF YOU WORK FORTY HOURS A WEEK IN VERMONT THAT I HAVE SHOW. MAYBE YOU SHOULD NOT BE LIVING IN POVERTY AND WE SHOULD RAISE THE- MINIMUM WAGE TO A LIVING WAGE OF FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR. AND SOME OF YOU MAY RECALL. ALL MY GOD THE EDITORIAL WRITERS EVERYBODY SAYS WHAT WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT FEDERAL MINIMUM WAGES SOMEBODY REPORTER NOW YOU WANT TO MORE THAN DOUBLE IT. AND WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING. THE MARIJUANA WAS NOT LEGAL AT THAT POINT OUR THAT’S ANOTHER ISSUE. BUT WHAT HAPPENED. WANT TO ALL RIGHT WELL WE CAME IN AND HIM SHOW. AND WE THANK THE PEOPLE THE HAMPSHIRE FOR THE GREAT SUPPORT YOU GAVE US BUT WHAT HAPPENED HERE. IS ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY PEOPLE SAID YOU KNOW WHAT. THE MEDIA MAY THINK THESE IDEAS OR CRAZY THE POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT. MAKE TAKE THESE IDEAS CRAZY BUT I CAN’T MAKE IT ON TEN OR ELEVEN BUCKS AN HOUR. AND WE’RE GONNA RAISE MINIMUM WAGE TO FIFTEEN BUCKS AN HOUR. AND YOU KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENED IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS. FROM THAT CRAZY AND WILD EXTREMIST IDEA SEVEN STATES. HAVE VOTED TO RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE TO FIFTEEN BUCKS AN HOUR. AND THE US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES VOTED TO RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE TO FIFTEEN BUCKS AN HOUR AND WE ARE GOING TO DEMAND THAT MITCH MCCONNELL PUT MIGHT BILL ON THE FLOOR SO THAT WE COULD RAISE. THE MINIMUM WAGE. THE LITTLE IDEAL. WAS NOT SO RADICAL AND HERE’S ANOTHER IDEA WHICH IS NOT SO RADICAL AND THAT IS THAT IN THIS COUNTRY WOMEN SHOULD NOT BE MAKING EIGHTY CENTS ON THE DOLLAR COMPARED TO MEN THEY DESERVE THE WHOLE. AND HERE’S ANOTHER IDEA WHICH IS NOT. SO RADICAL. IS THAT HERE ON LABOR DAY WE ACKNOWLEDGE ADULT THAT MANY MANY MANY MILLIONS OF AMERICAN WORKERS WANT TO JOIN UNIONS BUT THEY’RE FINDING IT VERY DIFFICULT BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE OPPOSITION OFTEN IT LEGAL OPPOSITION FROM THEIR EMPLOYERS AND THAT IS WHY WE ALL GOING TO PASS LEGISLATION CALLED THE WORKPLACE DEMOCRACY ARC WHICH WILL MAKE IT EASIER. FOR WORKERS TO JOIN UNIONS. AND THEN WE TALK ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN THIS COUNTRY. HERE IS ANOTHER IDEA THAT WE TALKED ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO THAT WAS SEEMINGLY AGAIN OFF THE CHARTS NOT ACCEPTABLE. WHAT I SAID THEN AND I SAY NOW. THEN FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE TO MAKE IT INTO THE MIDDLE CLASS. THEY NEED A GOOD HIGHER EDUCATION AND THAT HIGHER EDUCATION MUST BE AVAILABLE TO ALL OF OUR PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF THEIR RECALLS. BEFORE YOU CALL WE TALKED ABOUT MAKING PUBLIC COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES TO WHERE SHOULD THREE. HEY GUESS WHAT’S HAPPENING IN CALIFORNIA AND IN NEW YORK AND IN TENNESSEE THEY ARE MOVING PRECISELY IN THAT DIRECTION. AND WHEN WE ARE IN THE WHITE HOUSE. WE’RE GOING TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN IN EVERY STATE IN THIS COUNTRY. AND THEN THERE’S ANOTHER ISSUE WE TALKED ABOUT IT WILL TAKE IT A LITTLE BIT FURTHER DURING THIS CAMPAIGN AND THAT IS THE INSANITY AND I USE THAT WORD ADVISEDLY. THAT WE TELL OUR YOUNG PEOPLE GO OUT GET A COLLEGE EDUCATION AND THEN THEY’RE STUCK WITH A FIFTY THOUSAND OR A HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLAR DEBT THAT THEY’RE PAYING OFF NOT ONLY YEAR AFTER YEAR BUT DECADE AFTER DECADE I NEED PEOPLE WHO LITERALLY TOLD ME. THAT THEY’RE WORRIED THAT THEIR SOCIAL. SECURITY CHECKS WILL BE GONE THERE’S. THE TRUE THEIR SOCIAL SECURITY CHECKS WILL BE GONE. IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY PAY THEIR STUDENT DEBT. AND THAT IS WHY I BELIEVE IF WE COULD BAIL OUT THE CROOKS R WELDING MAJORITY OF DEMOCRATS BELIEVE IN A MEDICARE FOR ALL SINGLE PAYER PROGRAM. AND I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE BIT AS TO WHY MORE AND MORE AMERICANS ARE MOVING TOWARD MEDICARE FOR ALL. BECAUSE THEY SEE EVERY DAY. AS THE EXPERIENCE THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM. BUT THISFUNCTIONALITY AND THE BARBARITY IF YOU LIKE OF THE CURRENT SYSTEM THEY SEE IT EVERY DAY IT’S NOT AN ABSTRACT IDEA LET ME GIVE YOU AN IDEA AS TO HOW CRAZY AND ABSURD THIS SYSTEM IS JUST PICKED UP THE PAPER TODAY. I FLEW IN FROM HOUSTON TEXAS. AND WAS AN ARTICLE IT WAS WATCHING THE BULLS AND DESTROYED. ONCE AGAIN WE’LL TALK ABOUT THIS THE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE SHOOTING THAT TOOK PLACE LITTLE DOES A- TEXAS FIVE. PEOPLE LEASE WERE KILLED. BUT IT TURNS OUT. THAT ONE ALL THE POLICE OFFICERS WHO RACED TO THE SCENE. TO PUT HIS LIFE ON THE LINE WAS SHOT AND WOUNDED. AND HIS FAMILY HAS SINCE PLACE ON THE INTERNET A GOAL FUN MILLEY REQUEST TO PAY FOR HIS MEDICAL BILLS. I MAY TALK ABOUT INSANITY A POLICE OFFICER PUT HIS LIFE ON THE LINE TO PROTECT PEOPLE. NOW THE FAMILY IS GOING TO HAVE TO RAISE MONEY. TO PAY FOR THE CARE THAT HE GETS. WE HAVE A HEALTHCARE SYSTEM TODAY. IN WHICH WE PAY AND IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW THIS WE SPEND TWICE AS MUCH PER PERSON ON HEALTHCARE AS DO THE PEOPLE OF ANY OTHER INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRY WE SPEND CLOSE TO ELEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR TWICE WHAT I’LL WALL NEIGHBORS UP NORTH IN CANADA ALSO SPENDING. AND THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WITH SPENDING BALL MORE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH. YOU GOT EIGHTY SEVEN MILLION PEOPLE WHO ARE UNINSURED OR UNDER INSURED AND THE KEY WORD HERE IS UNDER INSURED. BECAUSE A LOT OF POLITICIANS WILL SAY WELL YOU ALL WANT TO PROVIDE INSURANCE FOR EVERYBODY INSURANCE DOESN’T MEAN A THING IF IT DOESN’T COVER YOU WHEN YOU NEED TO BE TAUGHT THAT. SO THIS IS WHAT YOU GOT TODAY. IT’S NOT JUST A POLICE OFFICER IN TEXAS IS WHAT YOU GOT TODAY. YOU GOT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO EVEN HAVE INSURANCE BUT THEIR DEDUCTIBLES ARE SO HIGH. BUT THEY CAN’T AFFORD TO GO TO THE DOCTOR WHEN THEY SHOULD. I KNOW WHEN I GO TO THE DOCTOR THE DOCTOR SAYS WHY WEREN’T YOU HERE. SIX MONTHS AGO WHEN YOU FIRST GOT YOUR SEPTUM AND THE PATIENTS AS WELL I DON’T HAVE INSURANCE RISE ON THE RICHARD COULDN’T AFFORD BILL. MANY OR SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE WILL GET. MUCH SICKER THAN THEY SHOULD’VE AND SOME WILL DIE WE LOSE AS A NATION. THIRTY THOUSAND PEOPLE A YEAR. ON NECESSARILY. BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T GO TO THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE WHEN THEY SHOULD. HERE IS SOMETHING EQUALLY CRAZY THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE YES STOP AND YOU THINK ABOUT AND WHAT THIS CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT IS ASKING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND THINK ABOUT THINGS IN A WAY THAT CONGRESS WASN’T APPROACH IT WITH THE MEDIA DOESN’T APPROACH. LAST FEEL. OVER. FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE IN OUR COUNTRY WENT BANKRUPT BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT PAY THEIR MEDICAL BILLS. NOW CLICK IF SOMEBODY IS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER WHAT A SHOCK BUT IT’S- YOU DIAGNOSED WITH A BAD HEART YOU NEED MAJOR SURGERY. SOMEBODY IN THE FAMILY HAS HOUSE SIGIL DEAL YOU’RE REALLY WITH A SERIAL KILLER THING IF THEY CAN YOUR FAMILY IS LIKE A HOW DO WE GET UP BACK ON OUR FEET AGAIN HOW DO I GET WELL WHAT TALK TO WANT TO GO DO. WHAT MEDICINE TO WHITE TAKE HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MYSELF THAT IS WHAT PEOPLE ARE THINKING. ABOUT WHEN THEY’RE DIAGNOSED WITH A SERIOUS ILLNESS. BUT IN THIS COUNTRY THEY’VE GOT TO THINK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE. AND THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS OF I HAVE TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL BUT TO BUY UNTIL THEY COME OUT WITH A HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLAR BILL. AND THE ANSWER IS THAT BY HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY GO BANKRUPT. NOT BECAUSE THEY BLEW THEM MONEY. ON A CASINO IN LAS VEGAS THEY WENT BANKRUPT BECAUSE THEY HAD TO CANCEL OR HEART DISEASE WHAT’S A PARABLE ELLIS THAT IS NOT WHAT A DEMOCRATIC CIVILIZED SOCIETY IS ABOUT AND WE ALL GO TO END THAT BARBARITY. BUT HERE IS THE POINT HERE IS THE ESSENCE OF THE ISSUE. AND THAT IS WEHAVE A HEALTHCARE SYSTEM TODAY OR I SHOULD SAY A HEALTH CAN NON SYSTEM WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM BUT LET ME ASK YOU. TO MAKE MONEY EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT WHAT IS THE BUDGET OF AN INSURANCE COMPANY. THE DRUG COMPANIES ALL RIGHT THAT’S ALL EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT SO HERE IS THE STORY. THE STORY IS BUT WITH EIGHTY SEVEN MILLION PEOPLE UNINSURED OR UNDERINSURED WITH US SPENDING TWICE AS MUCH AS THE PEOPLE OF ANY OTHER DEVELOPED COUNTRY. LAST YEAR ALL. THE TOP TEN DRUG COMPANIES MADE SIXTY NINE BILLION DOLLARS IN PROFIT. AND THEY MADE THAT PROFIT BECAUSE THEY CHARGE ALSO BODY FALL BY FOR THE HIGHEST PRICES IN THE WORLD BUT THE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS THAT WE NEED. LAST MONTH I TOOK A TRIP TO CANADA WITH A BUNCH OF FOLKS IN THE MIDWEST WHO ARE DIABETIC. AND THEY NEEDED INSULIN WE WENT TO WINDSOR ONTARIO. AND WE BOUGHT THE SAME EXACT PRODUCT IN KIND OF THAT IS SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES. FOR ONE. LOW PRICE. ONE TENTH THE PRICE. AND THE REASON THAT WE PAY TEN TIMES MORE THAN THE CANADIANS FOR INSULIN. IS THAT NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE GREED AND THE AMERICAN PRESCRIPTION DRUG INDUSTRY THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY YEAH I HAVE CORRUPTION AND PRICE FIXING. TURNS OUT THE THREE COMPANIES MANUFACTURED 90% OF THE INSULIN SHOTS COINCIDENTLY COINCIDENTLY THEIR PRICES STORE IT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME THAT’S COLD CORRUPTION. AND PEOPLE DIE BECAUSE THEY CAN’T GET THE MEDICINE I NEED I KNOW IN VERMONT THAT I’M SURE HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE YOUR OLD PEOPLE CUTTING THEIR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS IN HALF. AND THEN YOU GOT THE HEALTHCARE INSURANCE COMPANIES. POP FLY BIG TWENTY THREE BILLION IN PROFIT NEED THEY GET THESE GUYS YOU COMPENSATION PACKAGES. OKAY I MADE A GUY NAMED BARBER LEADING THERE WAS HEAD OF AT THEIR INSURANCE. HE ORCHESTRATED THE MERGER OF AETNA WITH CVS THE BIG DRUG CHAIN. DO YOU KNOW WHAT DO YOU GOT BUT BOY DOES HE GOT ORCHESTRATING THAT MERGER. WHICH WILL RAISE YOUR HEALTHCARE COSTS ANYONE WANT TO GUESS. MORE THAN A LOT I GOT A FIVE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLAR BONUS OF YOUR HEALTHCARE DOLLARS. ARE AND ON AND ON IT GOES GET THE HEADS OF THE DRUG COMPANIES THE INSURANCE COMPANIES MAKING ZILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN COMPENSATION. EVERY SINGLE YEAR. SO YEAH IT ALL TOGETHER. HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY LET’S GET MADE OVER A HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS IN PROFIT. AND WHAT THEY WILL DO AND THEY’RE DOING IT RIGHT NOW I DON’T KNOW THE ANSWER ON YET IN THE HANDS OF THEIR OUT AND I WILL. PROBABLY BE HERE SOON. AND THAT IS LABELED DEMONIZED ME PERSONALLY. AND THEY WILL ATTACK MEDICARE FOR ALL AND YOU KNOW WHY BECAUSE WE ALL CHALLENGING DALE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS IN PROFIT. AND WE ARE SAYING THAT THE FUNCTION ALL HEALTHCARE IN A CIVILIZED SOCIETY IS TO PROVIDE QUALITY CARE TO ALL IN A COST EFFECTIVE WAY NOT THE HOW OF WALL STREET AND THE INSURANCE COMPANIES MAKE BILLIONS IN PROFITS. SO WHEN YOU SEE THE YEAH. WHEN. YOU SEE THE ADS ON TV ATTACKING ME OR ATTACKING MEDICARE FOR ALL UNDERSTAND WHO IS PAYING FOR BOTH. THEY ALL VERY NERVOUS BECAUSE FINALLY WE ARE CHALLENGING. THEIR RIGHT TO REPORT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHILE THEY MAKE BILLIONS AND BILLIONS IN PROFITS THAT WHAT IS MEDICARE FOR WHAT IS IT MEET. AND IN THIS I COULD TELL YOU WILL BE APART WHICH I CAN TELL YOU I INTEND TO THE SIDE YARD DID NOT. WE SOLD A LOT OF IT FROM OTHER COUNTRIES OPEN FROM CATTLE. AND THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS WHAT IT MEANS IS WE ARE DOING AWAY WITH ALL PREMIUMS IN THIS COUNTRY. NEITHER YOU OR YOUR EMPLOYER IS GOING TO HAVE TO PAY A MONTHLY PREMIUM. WE ARE DOING AWAY WITH THE OLD COAL PAYMENTS WHEN YOU WALK INTO THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE YOU’RE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO PAY A COPAYMENT WE ARE DOING AWAY WITH ALL OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES. WE ALL DOING AWAY WITH THE FACT THAT WHEN YOU LEAVE THE HOSPITAL YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY A NICKEL NOT A RADICAL. IDEA EXACTLY WHAT GOES ON IN CANADA. TRANSPLANTED CANADA LEAVE THE HOSPITAL YOU DON’T PAY A NICKEL THAT SHOULD BE THE CASE IN AMERICA TODAY. NOW PEOPLE SAY WELL BIRD YEAH THAT’S REALLY NICE VERY EXPENSIVE HOW YOU’RE GOING TO PAY FOR IT WE ALL ARE ALREADY PAYING FOR IT. THREE PREMIUM YOU ARE PAYING ABOUT YOUR PAY WHAT FIVE TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. IN PREMIUMS EVERY OUT OF POCKET DOLLAR THAT YOU ARE SPENDING YOUR PAYING PORT EVERY OUTRAGEOUS PRESCRIPTION DRUG PRICES YOUR PAYING YOU ARE PAYING FOR IT BY THE WAY. ON THE MEDICARE FOR ALL I WILL BUILD. NOBODY IN AMERICA WILL PAY MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS A YEAR FOR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS BECAUSE WE WILL NO LONGER ALLOW THE PHARMACEUTICAL. INDUSTRY THE CHARGERS ANYTHING THAT THEY WANT. SO WHAT WE DO INSTEAD OF PAYING. YOU KNOW THE INSURANCE COMPANIES CALLED A PREMIUM YOU CAN CALL IT A TAX YOU CAN CALL WHAT IF YOU WANT TO CALL IT. WE’RE GONNA GET RID OF ALL OF THAT. AND WHAT WE WILL DO IS END UP WITH THE SITUATION WITH MEDICARE FOR ALL IS PAID FOR OUT OF THE TAX BASE OF THIS COUNTRY IN A PROGRESSIVE WAY. WHICH WILL MEAN THAT THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY WILL BE PAYING FALL LAST FOR HEALTH CARE ON THE MEDICARE FOR ALL THE IN THE PAYING TWO DAY. OKAY WHAT I WANT TO DO NOW THERE’S A LOT OF ALL THE ISSUES CONTINUES TO MOVED FLORIDA AND GEORGIA AS WELL THIS IS HURRICANE DORIAN COVERAGE WELCOME THE NEWS NOW AND HAPPY LABOR DAY TO EVERYONE HOPEFULLY EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE SAFE DURING THE STORM THERE IN FLORIDA IS IT’S PACKING A MAJOR PUNCH RIGHT NOW. HAD A CATEGORY FOUR STORM HI EVERYONE MIGHT BE SURE WELCOME TO NEWS NOW WE GOT ONE MORE HOUR FOR YOUR RIGHT HERE ON FOX TEN EXTRA ALWAYS GREAT HERE TO BE WITH YEAH WE’RE GONNA GO WHILE TO FLORIDA RIGHT NOW BILL. TO WIND GET AN UPDATE ON THIS MOVE BEING THAT CONDITION HAPPENS IS GOING TO BE CRITICAL FOR IMPACTS ON IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA BUT WE ARE EAST COAST CERTAINLY IS WITHIN THE COHNS STILL AND PEOPLE NEED TO REMAIN VIGILANT IF YOUR ORDER TO EVACUATE YOU NEED TO DO THAT FROM PALM BEACH COUNTY ALL THE WAY UP TO NASSAU. THE FLORIDA GEORGIA BORDER ALL THOSE COASTAL COUNTIES ON THAT ISSUE TO EVACUATION ORDERS AND IT’S IMPORTANT THAT RESIDENTS HE THOSE CALLS YOU KNOW GET OUT NOW WHILE YOU HAVE TIME WELL THERE’S FUEL AVAILABLE AND YOU’LL BE SAFE ON THE ROADS AND OF COURSE YOU CAN GO TO FLORIDA DISASTER DOT ORG SLASH INFO. FOR ALL OF ACTUATION UPDATES I JUST SPOKE THIS MORNING WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU HE’S FULLY ENGAGED IN THIS AND YOU KNOW JUST REITERATED THAT HE’S GOING TO PROVIDE WHATEVER RESOURCES WE NEED TO BE ABLE. TO WEATHER DORIAN FEMA IS FULLY ENGAGED OBVIOUSLY THIS IS THE LAST STORM THAT CAN IMPACT MULTIPLE STATES AT THIS POINT BYE BYE FEMA’S FULLY GAUGE HERE IN FLORIDA AND WE APPRECIATE THAT WERE OF COURSE CONCERNED ABOUT UP POWER RESTORATION ONCE THE STORM. PASSES FLORIDA POWER LIGHT HAS MOST OF THE FEES I IN TERMS OF THE POWER AND THEY’VE ASSEMBLED APPROXIMATELY SEVENTEEN THOUSAND PERSONNEL THAT ARE PRE STAGED AN AND READY. I TO RESPOND AND AS SOON AS THE. FIRST BANDS A SEVERE WEATHER HEAD THEY WILL COME IN AFTER THAT TO RESTORE POWER AROUND THE CLOCK I BECAUSE WE WOULD ADDING THEY UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS WE WILL OBVIOUSLY BE ASSISTING WITH OUR ASSETS. WHETHER IT’S CLEARING ROADS VEGETATION WHATEVER WE CAN DO TO HELP OUT HELP THAT HAPPEN. THERE BEEN SEVENTY TWO NURSING HOMES AND ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES ALONG THE COAST THAT HAVE BEEN EVACUATED SOME FLORIDA HOSPITALS HAD BEGUN EVACUATING OR MAKING PLANS TO EVACUATE. THESE INCLUDE ADVAN HEALTH IN NEW SMYRNA EACH IN VOLUSIA COUNTY CAPE CANAVERAL IN BREVARD CLEVELAND CLINIC SOUTH IN MARTIN COUNTY. PORT SAINT LUCIE HOSPITAL GOOD SAMARITAN MEDICAL CENTER IN PALM BEACH STEWARD SEBASTIAN RIVER MEDICAL CENTER IN INDIAN RIVER IN HALIFAX PSYCHIATRIC CENTER NORTH IN VOLUSIA. I’M CLEVELAND CLINIC NORTH MARTIN IS A PARTIAL EVACUATION OUT. IF YOU’RE A INVOLVED WITH THE HEALTH CARE FACILITY CONTINUE IMPORTING YOUR EMERGENCY UPDATES INTO OUR EMERGENCY STATUS SYSTEM ON IT INCLUDES GENERATOR UTILITY INFORMATION EVACUATION STATUS EMERGENCY CONTACT. IF THERE IS A NEED FOR SOMETHING AND YOU’RE UPDATING US YEAH WE HAVE PEOPLE MONITORING THAT ALL THE TIME WE OUT PEOPLE IN A VARIETY OF AGENCIES THAT COULD THEN RESPOND. ACCORDINGLY AND OBVIOUSLY WE WANT TO DO THAT. WE HAVE THE GAS STATIONS ALONG THE EVACUATION ROUTES WE’VE CONFIRMED ARE GOING TO REMAIN OPEN SOME OF THE GAS STATIONS IN THE EVACUATION ZONES YOU MAY SEE SOME OF THOSE START TO CLOSE SOON. BUT THE ONES ON THE ROUTES ARE GOING TO REMAIN OPEN I’VE EXPANDED THE SUSPENSION OF TOLLS TO INCLUDE ROOTS IN AND AROUND JACKSONVILLE LIKE THE FIRST COAST EXPRESSWAY AND THE I. TWO NINETY FIVE EXPRESS LANE. AND OF COURSE WE SUSPENDED TOLLS ON A NUMBER OF ROADS IN FLORIDA YESTERDAY ALSO THE CENTRAL FLORIDA EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY HAS SUSPENDED TOLLS ON A NUMBER OF ROADS IN AND AROUND CENTRAL FLORIDA. NOW THE FOLLOWING FIVE PORTS HAVE BEEN CLOSED MIAMI EVERGLADES FOR PEERS PALM BEACH IN PORT CANAVERAL JACKSONVILLE AND FOR AN INDIAN NOW ARE IN CONDITION YANKEE OBVIOUSLY AS THE STORM MOVES NORTH YOU KNOW THEIR STATUS COULD CHANGE. BUT AS THE STORM MOVES NORTH WE ANTICIPATE SOME OF THE SOUTHERN PORTS ARE MONITORING TRAFFIC AND- I HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY I IN TERMS OF EVACUATIONS OUT OF TERMS OF EVACUATION TRAFFIC. I PRETTY MUCH WHAT WE EXPECTED SO THIS IS I’VE BEEN FRUSTRATING I KNOW FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE BECAUSE THIS SEEMS LIKE WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS FOR A LOT LONG TIME. BUT WE ARE IN A SITUATION WHERE THE STORM IS STALLING VERY CLOSE TO OUR COAST IT IS GOING TO MAKE A MOVEMENT AND THE MOVEMENT THAT IT MAKES IS GONNA HAVE A LOT OF IMPACT ON ■tOOR RADIANCE AND SO PLEASE. I LISTEN TO THE INSTRUCTIONS HE THE INSTRUCTIONS DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO. TO KEEP YOU AND YOUR FOR YOUR FAMILY SAY. TAKE SOME QUESTIONS. AT THIS POINT. ALL OF THE NURSING HOMES THAT. YOU DIDN’T KNOW WHETHER THEY AND UPDATED WITH. WITH GENERATORS ONE OUT THAT THOSE THOSE FACILITIES ARE NOW SAY THOUSAND WE’VE- GOTTEN THE PATIENTS HAVE. I MEAN ARE THEY TO POSITIONS THE BEST AS THEY CAN BE TO WEATHER THE STORM WHAT WE HAVE SO WHEN THE AS I SAID YESTERDAY IN THE COASTAL COUNTIES THE FACILITIES EITHER. HAVE CONFIRMED GENERATOR AVAILABILITY OR- THAT THEY PLAN TO EVACUATE. NOW SO SINCE THAT HAS HAPPENED YOU KNOW NOT EVERYONE OF THEM IS CONTINUE TO GIVE US UPDATES AND SO YOU IF YOU HAVE A GENERATOR. AND SOMETHING’S WRONG WITH THE GENERATOR YOU NEED TO TELL US THAT YOU NEED TO PUT THOSE UPDATES AND BY. YOU KNOW THEY’VE ALL EITHER INDICATED GENERATOR OR A PLAN TO EVACUATE BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT’S CONSTANTLY BEING MONITORED BY OCT GUIDE SOME OF OUR OTHER STATE OFFICIALS. ANOTHER THING THAT THAT AKA IS GOING TO BE DOING AS YOU WE HAVE A NUMBER OF HOSPITALS OBVIOUSLY ON THE EAST COAST OF FLORIDA. WE’RE OBVIOUSLY CONCERNED ABOUT ALL OF THEM BECAUSE IT’S A SENSITIVE THING BUT SOME OF THE BIGGER OUR CORPORATE HOSPITALS. PROBABLY HAVE MORE RESOURCES TO HANDLE THIS AND SO OCT HAS BEEN FOCUSING ON. GETTING UPDATES FROM OFFERING ASSISTANCE SOME OF THE INDEPENDENT HOSPITALS WHICH MAY NOT HAVE. AS MANY RESOURCES AND SO THEY’VE BEEN VERY PROACTIVE ON THAT AND I APPRECIATE WHAT MERRY MAY USE DOING. HOSPITALS ARE IN FACT WAITING ARE YOU HEARING THE ARE COMPLETELY EVACUATING AND DO THEY SEND THEIR PATIENTS AND WANT TO THE INTERIOR COUNTIES THAT. I THINK IT’S A MIX. ENGINEER TO PROBABLY NO MORE DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK ON THAT. I THANK YOU GOVERNOR SO IT’S A MIX HE TOPPLES DOING DIFFERENT THINGS DEPENDING UPON WHERE THEY’RE LOCATED THE TYPE OF BUILDING AND WHAT WHAT TOTAL LEVEL SURGE. THEY THEY MIGHT BE EXPECTING SO SUMMER ARE OBVIOUSLY MOVING OUT THERE MOST CRITICAL PATIENTS A LOT OF TIMES THEY HAVE. OBVIOUSLY SISTER FACILITIES ARE THEY HAVE AMMO USE IN PLACE WITH OTHER FACILITIES. HELLO IS THIS STORM IMPACTED TOURISM NUMBERS OVER THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND WE HAVE ANY IDEA HOW. IT IT’S TOO SOON TO KNOW EXACT NUMBERS BUT I MEAN OBVIOUSLY IF. I THINK WE STARTED TO SEE POSSIBILITIES OF THIS EARLIER IN THE WEEKLAST WEEK. I REMEMBER INITIALLY WERE LIKE WELL IT’S PROBABLY GONNA RUN OVER THE MOUNTAINS OF HISPANIOLA BREAK UP AND THEN EVERYONE AGO AND DIDN’T HAPPEN SO. SO I THINK YOU’RE OBVIOUSLY GOING TO SEE SOME AFFECT OF THAT. BUT AT THE SAME TIME I THINK THE FACT THAT IT’S TAKEN ANNIE’S WORD TRACK. PEOPLE THAT HAD PLANNED ON BEING SOME PLACE IN NORTHWEST FLORIDA OR WHATEVER PROBABLY YOU KNOW WEREN’T AFFECTED IT ALSO SO WE’LL WE’LL FIGURE ALL THAT OUT BUT LOOK AT THE END OF THE DAY. YEAH I WANTED AS ROBUST TOURISM IS POSSIBLE BUT MY MOST IMPORTANT PRIORITY IS THAT THAT FLORIDIANS ARE SAFE AND THAT. AND I WERE DOING WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO BE ABLE TO ASSESS AFTER THE FACT AND- THIS IS STORM THAT IS. A RECORD IN TERMS OF THE HUNDRED EIGHTY FIVE MILE PER HOUR IMPACT OF THE BAHAMAS. AND IT’S VERY VERY CLOSE TO OUR SHORES I APPRECIATE THE TRACKS TO KEEP IT OFF THE SHORE. BUT OUT BUT WE’RE GONNA HAVE WE’RE GONNA HAVE SOME IMPACTS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. AND THAT’S REALLY I THINK THE MAIN CONCERN WILL BE ABLE TO PEOPLE ARE GONNA WANNA COME TO FLORIDA CAN BE ALL TIME TO DO ALL THAT STUFF AND WE GOT A LOT OF GREAT THINGS GOING ON THE ECONOMY. BUT BUT SAFETY REALLY IS NUMBER ONE SO WE ARE ON. OBVIOUSLY GONNA BE MONITORING THIS THERE THE REST OF THE DAY YOU KNOW WE HAVE A LOT OF RESOURCES READY TO GO THE FEDS OR HAVE BEEN GREAT THEY HAVE A LOT OF RESOURCES READY TO GO. AND HOPEFULLY BY TONIGHT YOU KNOW WE’LL HAVE A SENSE OF THE MOVEMENT AND YOU KNOW THE WEATHER EXPERTS SAID TO HAVE SAID ONCE WE SEE THE DEFINITIVE MOVEMENT NORTH ON WHICH PATH THAT’S ON. YOU KNOW THAT’S GOING TO ALLOW US TO KIND OF EVEN MORE ARE CONCISELY A CONCRETE LEE. IDENTIFIED THE PLACES ALONG FLORIDA’S COAST. THAT ARE THAT ARE MOST AT RISK SO STAY TUNED FOR THAT THANK YOU WHEN WE ISSUE A CURFEW IT IS ONLY THE AMOUNT OF TIME AT NECESSARY TO PRESERVE PUBLIC SAFETY WE KNOW THAT SOME OF THE MOST INTRUSIVE ACTIONS AT A THAT A GOVERNMENT CAN TAKE IS TO RESTRICT THE NOMINEE OF LAW ABIDING CITIZENS IN THE CREDIT IF. WE NEED TO DO OR NOT. DO THAT YOU WELL INFORMED AND WE WILL BE A SHORT OF A PERIOD OF TIME AS POSSIBLE WE KNOW THAT OUR COMMUNITIES HE’LL WHEN NEIGHBORS HELPED NEIGHBORS AND CITIZENS CAN HELP CITIZENS SO. THAT’S AN IMPORTANT PART OF WHAT WE DO. FOR THESE VOLUNTARY EVACUATION AREAS OF LOW LYING AREAS OR THE MANUFACTURED HOME COMMUNITIES YOU CAN REST ASSURED THAT THERE IS AN INCREASE LAW ENFORCEMENT PRESENCE IN THOSE AREAS BOTH WITH. VISIBLE MARKED PATROL CARS FROM THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE AS WELL AS OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH ALL OF THE MUNICIPALITIES AND SOME OF THE COUNTY BUT WHAT YOU SEE GOING ON HERE AT THE COUNTY LEVEL IS ALSO BEING REPLICATED IN VARIOUS CITIES THROUGHOUT SEMINAL COUNTY. AND I’M WORKING DIRECTLY WITH THOSE CHIEFS OF POLICE AND WE’RE WORKING DIRECTLY WITH THOSE THOSE CITY MANAGERS ON OUR OVERALL STRATEGY SO THERE’S CONSISTENCY BETWEEN THE COUNTY AND THE VERY. CITIES IN SOME OF THE COUNTY. OF. THE EVACUATION AREA. SOME ARE GOING TO BE IN MARKED VEHICLES AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS WILL BE AN UNMARKED. PLAIN CLOTHES VEHICLES AGAIN WE WANT TO PROTECT PEOPLE’S PROPERTY. IF THEY CHOOSE TO WALK AWAY FROM THE AREA. IF WE DO HAVE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT CURFEW IN ANY TYPE OF RESTRICTIONS WE DO THAT IN IN CONCERT WITH CONTIGUOUS US CENTRAL FLORIDA COMMUNITIES. WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE A VERY CLOSE AREA HERE IN CENTRAL FLORIDA AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WORK FOR COMMUTE BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN ORANGE AND SEMINAL COUNTY SO. I’VE BEEN IN CONVERSATION WITH THE LOCAL SHERIFF’S IN THE CENTRAL FLORIDA AREA AND OUR TEAM TO WORK TOGETHER ON TO SOMETHING THAT IS. REASONABLE WHEN IT WHEN IT COMES TO THAT. AGAIN AFTER THE STORM SAFETY IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS THAT THAT WE CAN MAKE YOU AWARE OF AND- FOR THE SHERIFF’S OFFICES IS. TYPICALLY THE TIME THAT WE SEE MOST OF OUR PROBLEMS. IT’S THE STORM PASSES THROUGH A PEOPLE WANT TO GO OUT THERE AND ASSESS THE DAMAGES OF THE PROPERTY. THEY WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT YOU KNOW THEIR NEIGHBORING PROPERTY THEY WANT TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE SO. USE EXTREME CAUTION EVEN IF THERE ARE NO CURFEWS GETTING ON THE ROAD. ACTUALLY I’M NOT BEEN DRIVING ALL AROUND SOME OF THE COUNTY TODAY AND I’M EXTREMELY PROUD OF OUR CITIZENS. STAYING AT HOME AND THERE’S VERY VERY FEW. CARS ON THE ROAD EVEN EVEN NOW. WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING AT SHELTERS ALLEN MENTIONED THAT. YOU KNOW SOON AS WE OPEN THE SHELTER AT NOON WERE ALREADY GETTING PEOPLE IN THERE AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE. DOES ACCOMMODATIONS ARE AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE AND KNOW THAT WE HAVE. A DEPUTY SHERIFF THAT ARE STATIONED AT EACH ONE OF THESE LOCATIONS. AND THEY WILL REMAIN THERE THROUGHOUT IN MANY THE LOCATION TO SEVERAL DEPUTY SHERIFFS THERE. AND THEY’RE NOT ONLY THERE FOR SAFETY SECURITY. THEY’RE THERE TO PROVIDE ANY ASSISTANCE TO YOU OR YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS THAT’S A GREAT PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR SCHOOL BOARD. TO RETURN TO WALK GRIFFIN ALLOWS US THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT. KEEP YOUR EYES OUT FOR PRICE GOUGING ARE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTUALLY MOODY HAS TAKE A STRONG STANCE AN EFFORT. AND IF YOU SEE THAT I WANT YOU TO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY YOU CAN DO THAT BY. OUR NON EMERGENCY LINE OR IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS CALL AND I WILL ONE ALL OF THE CALLS WILL COME BACK INTO OUR HUB. AND WE WILL GET OUT THERE AND- DO ALL THAT WE CAN TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT TAKING ADVANTAGE. OF THIS SITUATION. AGAIN I WANT TO REMIND PEOPLE THAT WILL WHEN IT COMES TO LOSS OF POWER THERE’S A LOT OF. SITUATIONS ESPECIALLY WITH A MAJOR INTERSECTION. ARE MAJOR INTERSECTIONS ARE A BATTERY BACKUP. THAT BATTERY BACKUP LAST FOR AT LEAST EIGHT HOURS. AND THEN AFTER THAT OR ARE. INTERSECTIONS ARE RUN OFF THE GENERATORS. AND I MADE A STATEMENT THE OTHER DAY LOVE ABOUT NO DON’T TRY TO DO OUR GENERATORS. WE ARE TRACKING OUR GENERATORS WE’VE GOT GPS MONITORING ON OUR GENERATORS. AND THE LAST ONE THAT WE HAD WE HAD SIX PEOPLE BE. SO BOLD TO TAKE A GENERATOR FOR. SECONDS. NOT STAND FOR THAT I MEAN THERE’S NOT. ONLY A CONCERN WITH THE THEFT BUT THERE IS A IN IN A MINUTE PUBLIC TAKE TO CONCERN IF YOU TAKE THAT RESOURCE AWAY FROM THOSE TRAFFIC SIGNALS IN PEOPLE OF GRUB RUNNING TO THERE SO. I’LL LET YOU KNOW NOW THERE’S NO SECRET WE’VE GOT GPS TRACKERS ON AND WE KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THEY’RE AT WHERE THE GONNA GO THEY’LL BE NO VALUE. TO YOU AT ALL. AT LAST AND CERTAINLY NOT LEAST I THINK NOW IS THE TIME WHERE. ALL OF OUR WORK. AND DEDICATION WITH OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY OR EMS OR SCHOOL BOARD ARE ELECTED OFFICIALS OF THE COUNTY. THIS IS WHAT WE PLANNED FOR. YEAR AFTER YEAR AND WE ARE ABSOLUTELY PREPARED TO MEET THIS SITUATION HEAD ON. THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE HAS SEVEN VEHICLES THAT ARE HEAVY VEHICLES THAT CAN RESPOND. REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE WHAT THE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE. BUT WE PREFER NOT TO TAKE THOSE VEHICLES OUT ONE WINS ARE SUSTAINED FOR MORE THAN FORTY FIVE MILES PER HOUR. SO I WANT YOU TO USE CAUTION. ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE CALLING NINE ONE ONE FOUR. IF YOU’RE GOING TO REPORT THE THEFT OF A- TAG THAT OCCURRED LAST WEEK THIS IS PROBABLY NOT THE TIME TO DO THAT SO WHAT YOU TO BE VERY VERY. GUARDED ON WHAT YOU’RE DOING. AT LAST AND CERTAINLY NOT LEAST YOU KNOW AND I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE TALK ABOUT HURRICANE PARTIES.

HI IN THAT REGARD TO. I KNOW WITH HURRICANE FLOORS YOU GUYS APARTMENT TRANSPORTATION. KIND OF NEW DEVICES TO HELP MITIGATE SOME OF FLOODING ON THOSE MAJOR ROADS ARE YOU GUYS DOING. ANYTHING LIKE THAT FOR THIS STORY. IF REQUIRED ABSOLUTELY PART OF WHAT WE’RE ALSO DOING THE SIZE. DEALING WITH MANAGING TRAFFIC IS SORT OF THAT LOOKING IN. ON THE DESPITE WHAT OUR NEEDS ARE THREE FLUBS LAYS OUT. AND SO WE OR ON CURRENTLY DOING AN- ANALYSIS ON OUR CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE. WHERE THERE MAY BE STORM SURGE OF FLOODING OR A LOW LYING AREAS AND WHAT MITIGATION MEASURES WE MAY TAKE. SO LITTLE EARLY ON MY AT A AS A GOVERNOR MENTIONED WITH THE UNPREDICTABLE NATURE OF THE STORM. WE STILL NEED TO GET A LITTLE BIT REFINED DATA COMPANY AND THEN WE’LL TAKE THE APPROPRIATE ACTION AT THE RIGHT. TIME WITH THOSE TOOLS ARE STILL IN THE TOOL BOX ABSOLUTELY. QUESTION. WHAT’S YOUR BEST GUESS NOW AND WHERE THE HURRICANE MIGHT COME ASHORE IN SOUTH CAROLINA. YEAH I JUST POINT WE’RE NOT EXPECTING LANDFALL IN SOUTH CAROLINA ON THE CURRENT FORECAST TRACK WHOEVER IT WOULDN’T TAKE MUCH OF THIS SHIFT TO THE LEFT TO BRING IN VERY CLOSE OR ON TREND SOUTH CAROLINA’S RIGHT NOW THERE’S NO PREDICTION FOR LANDFALL HERE IN THE STATE. BUT AGAIN THAT THE CURRENT FORECAST ONLY SHOWS A PASSING THE FIFTY MILES OFF SHORE SO THAT’S THAT’S NOT VERY FAR AT ALL AND I JUST A SLIGHT CHANGE THAT FORECAST TRACK. COULD YOU MEDICALLY AND INCREASING TAXES WE SEE EARLY. LAND FULL MEANS IS OUT HER CASH MOVING IN WHICH THE COACH RIGHT NOW I’VE SAT IN THE OCEAN. AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THAT. PREDICTIONS SO FAR. SO WE WOULD SAY THE SAFE GET AWAY FROM THE COAST OF PREDICTIONS ALRIGHT WIN WAR OF. HURRICANE HUGO ONE WAY THOUGH THE NOBODY KNOWS. ARE SO BE SAFE. AND JUST TO BE. JUST TO BE CERTAIN AND THEN CIRCLE BACK TO AN EARLIER QUESTION YOU HAVE NO JOBS THAT YOU HAVE STARTED THE EVACUATIONS IN THE LANE REVERSALS THANK. YOU FOR FREE TIME YOU DON’T THINK THAT YOU CAN JUMP THE GUN. NOT TOO EARLY NOT TO LIKE WE DID IT JUST RIGHT WE FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES IN MAY THE JUDGMENTS WE MADE IN. COUNTLESS HURRICANES FIVE AND FIVE AND INCIDENTS IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS OR MORE THAN FIVE OF THESE IN A ROW. AND THIS IS WHAT I EXPERIENCE TELLS US TO DO AND MOST OF THE PEOPLE THAT YOU SEE HERE. REPRESENT THE VARIOUS AGENCIES HAVE BEEN THROUGH ALL OF THIS SO THIS THIS IS OUR BEST JUDGMENT AND AGAIN WE DO NOT WANT TO GAMBLE. WITH A SINGLE LIFE IN SOUTH CAROLINA. WE DO NOT GAMBLE FOR LIFE.

THE REPRESENTATIVES OF WHICH SHOW MANY THAT YOU SEE HERE THE COUNTY PEOPLE ARE NOT HERE BUT THERE’S A LOT OF EXPERIENCE A LOT OF TALENT SO INVOLVED IN THIS AND WE HAVE LEARNED THAT THE BEST THING ALWAYS IN EVERYTHING IS TO COME KATE COLLABORATE AND COOPERATE. AND IT WORKS EVERY TIME SHE’S. FOR THOSE ARE THE SITE THIS IS THE WORST OF. PHARMACIES. CHOOSE NOT TO CLOSE THE NAME MILEY THE EVACUATION OR SO THEY MAY NOT BE OPEN. EVERYONE HAS. OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS THE LADY OVER SEOUL’S HAVE BEEN A PRETTY BIG TRIED BEFORE THAT FOR YEARS BEFORE THAT HADN’T REALLY BEEN A BIG FOCUS ON HAD HAD TO DO IT THAT MUCH. HAS THERE BEEN A SENSE THAT THIS IS GOTTEN I DON’T SEE EASIER BUT MORE ROUTINE OVER THE LAST THREE FOUR YEARS WELL WE CERTAINLY KNOW HOW TO DO BECAUSE WE’VE DONE A NUMBER OF TIMES. THAT WE KNOW THAT IT WORKS AND IT THERE SO IN THIS TODAY IS AN EXCELLENT. DEMONSTRATION OF HOW WELL IT WORKS WHEN IT WAS SENSITIVE TRAFFIC WAS INCREASING. ALMOST DOUBLED AT SIX O’CLOCK. AS SOON.

CURRENTLY THE LAST LATER THAT I LOOK AT WHICH WAS ON THE FIRST TWO HOURS OF THE REVERSAL WE WERE SEEING APPROXIMATELY. FIVE THOUSAND VEHICLES UTILIZING BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE TWENTY SIX HEADING UP SO THAT WOULD EQUATE TO PER HOUR. SO THAT WOULD EQUATE TO APPROXIMATELY ABOUT TEN ELEVEN THOUSAND PEOPLE. FEEL AS IN THE WESTBOUND HEADING UP TOWARDS COLUMBIA SO IS OBVIOUSLY FROM THE VIDEO IS VERY WELL USED. IT MOST DEFINITELY MADE A THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND WHATSOEVER. THAT IF WE HAD NOT IMPLEMENTED THIS REVERSAL THAT WE WOULD HAVE GRIDLOCK I’M NOT TWENTY SIX SAYS. DIRECTOR SMITH IN THE TEAM THE LOCALS DESERVE A LOT OF CREDIT FOR BEING ABLE TO QUICKLY REACT WHEN WE NOTICED THAT THE TRENDS OF HOW THEY WERE GOING. TO ACCELERATE.
