ANOTHER MAN RESCUED WITH HIS DOG. PRESIDENT BIDEN WILL TRAVEL TO THE REGION THIS WEEK TO SEE THE DAMAGE FIRST HAND. THE DEATH TOLL ROSE TO AT LEAST 87 TODAY. HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS ARE STILL WITHOUT POWER. AND AS PEOPLE FACE A DAUNTING CHALLENGE OF REBUILDING, WE'RE NOW LEARNING THAT IN SOME OF THE HARDEST-HIT COUNTIES, MANY DIDN'T HAVE FLOOD INSURANCE. WE HAVE TWO REPORTS TONIGHT, BEGINNING WITH MORGAN CHESKY IN FORT MYERS BEACH. >> Reporter: TONIGHT RESCUE TEAMS SCOURING A CRIPPLED FLORIDA COAST SEARCHING FOR SURVIVORS FOUR DAYS AFTER IAN'S FURRY. >> WHAT'S YOUR NAME? >> RICK. >> WE'RE GOING TO GET YOU OUT OF HERE. >> Reporter: TEAMING UP TO RESCUE MORE THAN 2,000 PEOPLE AND 150 PETS SO FAR. ON THE ISLAND'S CUTOFF FROM THE MAINLAND, THE SITUATION ESPECIALLY DIRE. ONE MAN SCRAWLING "HELP" INTO THE STAND. >> ANYONE HOME? SEARCH AND RESCUE? >> HELLO! >> Reporter: ANOTHER SAFE FROM HIS BOAT, TRAPPED IN TREES.

ON THE TARMAC IN PUNTA GORDA, WE MET COAST GUARD VICE ADMIRAL KEVIN LUNDAE OVERSEAING THE MASSIVE RESPONSE. >> WE'RE ENTERING DAY FOUR POST-IAN AND THERE ARE STILL PEOPLE LEFT STRANDED HERE. >> YES, THAT'S RIGHT, MORGAN. AND THAT'S WHY THE FIRST PRIORITY IS SEARCH AND RESCUE AND THOSE IN NEED. >> Reporter: NEARBY, RESCUERS ON FOOT FACING A GROWING RISK, SEARCHING BUILDINGS TEETERING ON COLLAPSE. DR. BURNS JOINED A TEAM FROM FEMA ON THE GROUND. >> THE SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAM HAS BROUGHT IN A HUMAN REMAINS K-9. THIS DOG IS GOING TO CHECK ON A SUSPICIOUS ODOR TO CONFIRM WHETHER OR NOT THERE MIGHT BE A DECEASED INDIVIDUAL AT THIS HOME. >> Reporter: CREWS RESTORING POWER TO MORE THAN A HALF MILLION PEOPLE IN 24 HOURS, BUT MORE THAN 700,000 REMAIN WITHOUT. AND CENTRAL FLORIDA, WHICH HAS BEEN INUNDATED WITH FLOODS, WATERS FINALLY STARTED TO RECEDE. A HOPEFUL GLIMPSE OF NORMALCY IN TAMPA, WITH A REMATCH OF SUPER BOWL LV. AUCTIONING JERSEYS FOR TONIGHT'S GAME FOR HURRICANE IAN RELIEF. LEFT FACING A TOUGH ROAD TO RECOVERY. >> AND MORGAN JOINS US NOW FROM FORT MYERS BEACH.

BLAYNE ALEXANDER NOW ON HOW SOME RESIDENTS ARE TRYING TO MOVE FORWARD. >> Reporter: THERE'S NOTHING THAT COMPARES TO SEEING TEN YEARS OF YOUR LIFE AND LIVELIHOOD LOOK LIKE THIS. >> FIRST THING I HAD TO PULL UP HERE AND STAND UP ON TOP OF THE PILE AND, YOU KNOW, BASICALLY CRY BECAUSE IT'S A LOT OF HARD WORK.

>> Reporter: HE SAYS REBUILDING COULD COST NEARLY $500,000, BUT HIS INSURANCE WON'T COVER HALF OF THAT. A HIGHER POLICY WASN'T IN THE BUDGET. >> YOU NEVER THINK AHEAD THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN. YOU'RE ALREADY PAYING A MORTGAGE PAYMENT AND YOU'RE STRUGGLING A LITTLE TO BEGIN WITH. >> WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN TOO EXPENSIVE AT THAT POINT? >> IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TOO EXPENSIVE, YEAH. >> Reporter: A SIMILAR SITUATION FOR RANDY BAITTY. >> THAT'S MY RECLINER AND STUFF THERE. >> Reporter: HE CANCELLED HIS FLOOD INSURANCE ABOUT EIGHT YEARS AGO WHEN THE PREMIUMS GOT TOO HIGH, HE SAYS. BUT WHEN IAN HIT, THE WATER THAT SPILLED INTO HIS CONDO NEARLY REACHED THE SEASON. >> THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE PROBABLY IN THE SAME SHAPE AS ME, SAME BOAT.

WE'RE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT HERE. >> Reporter: ACCORDING TO THE INSURANCE INFORMATION INSTITUTE, ONLY ABOUT 18% OF FLORIDA HOMEOWNERS HAVE FLOOD INSURANCE, MOST OF THAT THROUGH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. >> THE FURTHER AWAY YOU GET FROM THE COSTLINE, I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO FIND MORE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE FLOOD INSURANCE. >> Reporter: INCLUDING CENTRAL FLORIDA, PARTS OF WHICH SAW RECORD RAINFALL DURING IAN. FEWER THAN 5% OF HOMES HAVE FLOOD INSURANCE. THIS MAN IS DOING WHAT HE CAN TO HELP HIS NEIGHBORS WHILE SORTING OUT HIS OWN NEXT STEPS. >> YOU KNOW, WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT? >> AND BLAYNE JOINS US NOW FROM FORT MYERS BEACH. BLAYNE, WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE WITHOUT INSURANCE? >> Reporter: WELL, JOSE, THEY CAN APPLY FOR FEMA ASSISTANCE. IN FACT, PEOPLE FROM 13 DIFFERENT FLORIDA COUNTIES RIGHT NOW ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THAT RELIEF. THE AGENCY SAYS MORE THAN 80,000 PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY STARTED THAT APPLICATION PROCESS. JOSE? >> BLAYNE ALEXANDER IN FORT MYERS BEACH, THANK YOU. >>> OVERSEAS TO INDONESIA AND THE DEADLY SOCCER STAMPEDE THAT KILLED AT LEAST 125. HUNDREDS MORE ARE OF THE DEADLIEST DAYS IN THE SPORT'S HISTORY.

MOLLY HUNTER, NBC NEWS, LONDON. >>> UKRAINIAN FORCES ARE MAKING NEW GAINS AGAINST RUSSIA TONIGHT RETAKING ANOTHER CITY. PUTIN'S FORCES HAD CLAIMED FOR THEMSELVES. PRESIDENT ZELENSKYY SAYS THEY'RE ON THE RESEARCH OF RETAKING MORE. JAY GRAY REPORTS FROM KYIV. >> Reporter: UKRAINIAN FIGHTERS ADVANCING, PUSHING THROUGH LYMAN, TAKING BACK LAND OCCUPIED BY RUSSIAN TROOPS FOR MONTHS. RUSSIAN FLAGS TOSSED TO THE GROUND AND TRAMPLED, UKRAINIAN SOLDIERS CELEBRATING THEIR LATEST VICTORY. UKRAINIAN OFFICIALS WON'T SHARE SPECIFICS BUT DO SAY THEIR TROOPS ARE RIGHT NOW FREEING VILLAGES IN THE EAST, IN SOME AREAS DELIVERING DESPERATELY NEEDED FOOD AND WATER. AND TO THE SOUTH, INCHING CLOSER TO KHERSON, A RUSSIAN STRONGHOLD, AND THE FIRST CITY TO FALL JUST A WEEK AFTER THE INVASION. >> THE UKRAINIANS CONTINUE TO MAKE PROGRESS AND THEY CONTINUE TO PRESENT PROBLEMS TO THE RUSSIANS THAT THEY'LL HAVE TO RESOLVE. >> Reporter: PROGRESS THAT COMES AFTER WEEKS OF INTENSE FIRE FIGHTS. AN UNUSUAL SILENCE FROM MOSCOW. JUST TWO DAYS AFTER PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN RENEWED HIS THREAT TO DEFEND WEAPONS. >> IT'S RECKLESS, BUT IT'S SOMETHING WE HAVE HEARD SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE.

BUT THAT DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACT THAT THIS IS DANGEROUS. >> Reporter: SO IS THE STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE IN ADVANCE FOR UKRAINIAN SOLDIERS FIGHTING TO RECLAIM THEIR COUNTRY. >> TONIGHT LEADERS OF NINE EUROPEAN NATO COUNTRIES ISSUED A JOINT STATEMENT SUPPORTING UKRAINE'S REQUEST FOR ACCELERATED MEMBERSHIP. THE WHITE HOUSE HAS SAID THE APPLICATION SHOULD BE TAKEN UP AT A DIFFERENT TIME. ADMISSION REQUIRES THE APPROVAL OF ALL 30 MEMBER NATIONS. JOSE? >> JAY GRAY IN KYIV, THANK YOU. >>> AND NOW TO CALIFORNIA AND GROWING ANXIETY OVER WHAT COULD BE A SERIAL KILLER.

FIVE MEN MURDERED IN STOCKTON SINCE JULY. POLICE NOW RELEASING AN IMAGE OF A POSSIBLE PERSON OF INTEREST. KATHY PARK HAS DETAILS. >> Reporter: TONIGHT A SERIES OF KILLINGS IN STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA, HAVE RESIDENTS ON EDGE. >> THE COMMUNITY'S SCARED. IT STOPS NOW. >> Reporter: POLICE SAY FIVE MEN WERE SHOT AND KILLED BETWEEN JULY AND LATE SEPTEMBER. THE VICTIMS RANGING IN AGE FROM 21 TO 54. THE CRIMES HAPPENED JUST MILES APART, LATE AT NIGHT OR EARLY MORNING, AND ARE BELIEVED TO BE CONNECTED. NOW OFFICIALS SAY THIS NEWLY RELEASED IMAGE PULLED FROM VIDEO SURVEILLANCE COULD BE A PERSON OF INTEREST. >> IT COULD BE VERY WELL A SUSPECT OR IT COULD BE VERY WELL A WITNESS TO THE INCIDENT. >> 54-YEAR-OLD LORENZO LOPEZ WAS SHOT AND KILLED LAST WEEK. >> I'M STILL IN DISBELIEF. >> IT'S GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF TIME FOR CLOSURE TO HAPPEN BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, HE WAS A BIG PART OF THE FAMILY. >> Reporter: HIS YOUNGER BROTHER, JERRY, HEART BROKEN AND MISSING HIS BEST FRIEND. HOW IS LIFE GOING TO BE NOW WITHOUT HIM? >> IT'S GOING TO BE PRETTY LONELY.

I'M TELLING YOU THAT. HAVING HIM TO TALK TO WHEN THINGS WERE BAD OR THINGS GOOD. IT'S GOING TO BE A WHOLE DIFFERENT THING NOW. >> Reporter: WITH NO BREAK IN THE CASE AND A POSSIBLE SERIAL KILLER ON THE LOOSE, STOCKTON'S POLICE CHIEF IS ASKING FOR THE PUBLIC'S HELP. >> LOOK AT YOUR RING CAMERAS. LOOK AT WHATEVER FOOTAGE YOU HAVE AND POLICE HELP US OUT. >> Reporter: AND DEMANDING AN END TO THE BLOODSHED. >> STOP THE KILLING. >> Reporter: KATHY PARK, NBC NEWS. >>> STILL AHEAD, POWER SHIFTS, MY CONVERSATIONS WIT >>> TONIGHT WE'RE TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT LATINO VOTERS, NOW THE NATION'S LARGEST MINORITY VOTING VOTE. MANY ARE CHANGING PARTY PREFERENCES, AND THAT SHIFT COULD DETERMINE WHO CONTROLS CONGRESS IN NOVEMBER'S ELECTION.

SO, I VISITED THREE CITIES IN THREE STATES TO TALK TO LATINO VOTERS. ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST — [ CROWD CHANTING ] >> SIGNS THAT LATINO VOTERS ARE SHIFTING THEIR FOCUS TO THE ISSUES INSTEAD OF STICKING WITH ONE POLITICAL PARTY. >> WHEN YOU GO TO VOTE IN NOVEMBER, ARE YOU GOING TO BE A DOUBTFUL VOTER? >> I AM — I'M A DOUBTFUL VOTER NOW. >> I SAID, HEY, THIS GUY DOESN'T WORK FOR ME. >> THAT'S NOW BACKED UP BY A NEW NBC SURVEY OF LATINO VOTERS SHOWING SUPPORT FOR A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED CONGRESS JUMPED FIVE POINTS IN JUST THE PAST TWO YEARS. >> WE'RE NOT JUST GOING TO BLINDLY VOTE IN ONE PARTICULAR DIRECTION.

WE'RE GOING TO VOTE IN THE DIRECTION OF FOLKS WHO ARE GOING TO BE PAYING ATTENTION TO THE ISSUES THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO US. >> Reporter: THIS WOMAN LIVES IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA. HOW WOULD YOU SAY YOU FEEL AS A VOTER HERE? >> TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. >> IT'S A STATE THAT HAS BEEN RELIABLY REPUBLICAN BUT HAS TURNED INTO A SWING STATE. IN 2020, IT WENT FOR PRESIDENT BIDEN. SHE VOTED DEMOCRAT BACK THEN BUT NOW SAYS SHE'S NOT SO SURE. >> I FEEL LIKE THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL PARTY LOOKS AT MY DEMOGRAPHIC AND ASSUMES I'M GOING TO VOTE FOR THEM. I'M A LATINA WOMAN THAT HISTORICALLY HAS BEEN THE PARTY'S BREAD AND BUTTER. >> SHE WANTS THE PARTY TO TAKE STRONGER ACTION ON ISSUES LIKE ABORTION AND VOTING RIGHTS. BUT OUR POLL FOUND THAT THE TOP ISSUE FOR LATINOS WAS ACTUALLY THE COST OF LIVING.

>> WE SEE THAT PRICES ARE THROUGH THE ROOF AND WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DO TO HELP PUT THAT BURDEN DOWN. >> Reporter: IN CONSERVATIVE STRONGHOLD STATES LIKE TEXAS, SIGNS OF A POLITICAL SHIFT WITH MORE LATINO VOTERS LEANING REPUBLICAN. JOSE AND MARIA LIVE IN EL PASO. >> MARIA, YOU WERE A DEMOCRAT AND YOU ARE NOW A REPUBLICAN. WHY? >> BECAUSE THE FACT THAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS CHANGED A LOT AND I IDENTIFY MORE WITH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. >> WHAT THINGS? >> WELL, WE'RE FOR GOD, COUNTRY, FAMILY, AND HARD WORK. >> JOSE USED TO VOTE BLUE TOO.

NOW HE'S ALSO A REPUBLICAN AND MOST CONCERNED WITH IMMIGRATION AND BEEFING UP BORDER SECURITY. >> WHAT ARE THE CONCERNS YOU HAVE ABOUT IMMIGRATION? >> THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS WE DON'T FEEL SAFE ANYMORE. >> Reporter: BUT MANY LATINOS VIEW THE IMMIGRATION ISSUE DIFFERENTLY. DANNY LIVES IN SAN DIEGO. HE SAW HIS MOTHER DEPORTED. IT MADE A HUGE IMPACT ON YOUR LIFE. WHAT DO YOU TAKE FROM THOSE EXPERIENCES? >> INJUSTICE. >> Reporter: HE NOW VOLUNTEERS FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, PARTLY BECAUSE HE BELIEVES THEY HAVE MORE HUMANE IMMIGRATION POLICIES. IN SAN DIEGO, DEMOCRATS ARE GAINING GROUND WITH VOTERS ACROSS THE BOARD. BUT DANNY BELIEVES THEY HAVE MORE WORK TO DO. >> I THINK THEY FAILED IN A LOT OF AREAS, BUT >>> WE'RE BACK WITH SOME ASTONISHING VIDEO OF A HELICOPTER CRASH CAUGHT ON A DOORBELL CAMERA. IT HAPPENED IN FREZ YO IN CENTRAL, CALIFORNIA. THERE YOU SEE THE CHOPPER FALLING AND THE INVESTIGATION SET TO WRAP UP SOON. AND THE NEW CONCUSSION PROTOCOL COULD TAKE EFFECT WITHIN DAYS. >> WHEN WE COME BACK, >>> THERE'S GOOD NEWS TONIGHT ABOUT THE POWER OF BASEBALL TO BRING FAMILIES TOGETHER AND THE GRANDFATHER WHO GOT A SURPRISE BETTER THAN ANY HOME RUN.

>> Reporter: WHILE THEY SAY THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL, BUT SOMETHING SPECIAL HAPPENED LAST MONTH THAT CHANGED ALL THAT FOR 83-YEAR-OLD SENIOR LEAGUE PLAYER. IT'S HIS GRANDDAUGHTER, LAURA DECKER, AND 3-YEAR-OLD GREAT GRANDDAUGHTER, JOSEY. THEY DROVE TEN HOURS FROM SOUTH CAROLINA TO SURPRISE HIM IN OHIO. HE CUDDLES THE LITTLE GIRL, HEN HE EMBRACES HIS GRANDDAUGHTER. HE'S OVERCOME WITH EMOTION. >> THIS IS SUCH A NICE SURPRISE. >> TELL ME ABOUT THAT MOMENT WHEN YOU SAW YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER AND JUST WALKING UP. >> WHEN I SAW JOSEY RUNNING AT ME, I JUST LOST IT. IT WAS JUST SUCH A SURPRISE AND OVERWHELMING. >> OVERWHELMING BECAUSE THIS GAME HAD A MUCH DEEPER MEANING. IT WAS A TOURNAMENT TO HONOR THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE, GEORGE'S LATE WIFE, DONNA, WHO DIED IN JANUARY TO ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE. HIS DEDICATION TO THE GIRL HE CALLED, THE CUTEST GIRL EVER, GOING BACK 66 YEARS. >> WHAT, GEORGE, IS THE SECRET TO HAVING THAT LEVEL OF MARRIAGE AND LIFE-LONG COMPANIONSHIP? >> TWO WORDS.

YES, DEAR. >> THE COUPLE, THE BACKBONE OF THEIR BIG FAMILY. >> TALK TO ME ABOUT WHAT THIS EXTRAORDINARY MAN, YOUR GRANDPA, WHAT HE MEANS FOR YOU. >> HE'S SELFLESS, LOVING, JUST SOMEONE THAT YOU JUST ALWAYS LOOK UP TO. >> NOW IT SEEMS THE REST OF THE WORLD IS FEELING THE LOVE TOO. >> THERE'S SO MANY PEOPLE SAY HE'S OUR PAPA TOO. >> CHERISH THE LITTLE THINGS, YOU KNOW? TAKE TIME WITH YOUR LOVED ONES. JUST SPEND THOSE MOMENTS BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, WE'RE NOT HERE FOREVER. >> AND IT WASN'T THE ONLY SURPRISE LAURA GAVE HER GRANDPA. SHE'S EXPECTING ANOTHER BABY. THAT WILL BE HIS SEVENTH GREAT GRAND CHILD. WE WISH THEM ALL THE BEST. THAT'S "NBC NIGHTLY NEWS" FOR THIS SUNDAY. STAY TUNED FOR SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, TAMPA BAY VERSUS KANSAS .
