That doesn't explain what actions did you take with this information? I know Secret Service agents routinely will run down every single lead about a threat against the president's life. They've been known to go to a bar where somebody was drunk and spouting off and didn't really mean the threat that they said. But the agents in the field go and find that person knock on their door and ask them what's going on, man. So why were these other threats something to take note of to have concern about? That's Carol leonnig, a national investigative reporter for The Washington Post. Carol, thank you. Thank you.

Rep. Pat Fallon: Military Recruitment Declines Due to Vaccine Mandate
"Will be following the developments out of Florida with the coast guard doing heroic work and what's been going on. Well, instead of being congratulated, many of those young men and women are being booted right out of the coast guard because of these vaccine mandates. You know what? God doesn't make any sense. First and foremost, for your listeners, the military hasn't even met the recruiting goals this year. The army was 20,000 recruits short, the navy only had 89% and the air force was also several thousand shy. And in that kind of a time, just did just to be pragmatic. Why in the world would you throw out bodied well trained in our military because they won't take an unproven experimental vaccine? It is literally boggles the mind. And that's what Joe Biden is doing. It's the worst time. I don't first of all, obviously, Todd Starr's less freedom and liberty, so do I. I would never think that's a good idea.

The U.S. coast guard says federal, state and local authorities have brought about 4000 people to safety. Many were stranded on sanibel and captiva, devastated barrier islands cut off after flooding destroyed the only bridge to the mainland. Correspondent christiane Venezuela is also in Florida. Inland river flooding is a major concern. Many roadways are impassable, but residents are venturing out, waiting in long lines for gasoline to power their generators, and the National Guard is providing water and food. We're just here to give whatever they need. South Carolina governor Henry McMaster says, the worst of the storm spared his state. We had no storm related deaths. We had no hospitals damaged, old water systems were in ROK. President Biden travels to Puerto Rico tomorrow. CBS News special report, Ahmad piper.

I'm at the end of a driveway to street and I'm looking at a barbecue a stroller, kids toys, fishing rods, all left at the end of the driveway from damage. I mean, people lost a lot on this street. There's a pool next to this house here that's was just decimated. The patio furniture was all over the street. Interesting enough, one block over and you can probably hear the tractors in the background, but all these massive sand dunes that they brought over from the beach, they have to get out of the middle of the road. So this is the project all day long in this area, a garden city is the cleanup continues. Wow. And so Steve, what's response from officials been like and how are the residents coping? Well, a lot of residents Liz stayed. We're spending the morning with one family who wrote out storm. Now, ironically, they lost a lot in their bottom floor of their property, but they never lost power. A lot of property damage, but they never lost power, but I would say in this subdivision in most people stayed, yes, they suffered damage, but you know, we talked to a few residents. They have other properties or relatives, I see U haul truck actually three U haul trucks around. So some have elected to pack up and move in with relatives, and that's how they've been dealing with it. Wow, thank you so much, Stevie. Appreciate this update and letting us know what things are like in South Carolina. That's WTO P Steve dresner, reporting live from garden city, South Carolina.
