good morning, america. happening right now, double trouble. dangerous tornado threats in the plains. >> here we go. >> roofs ripped apart. trucks overturned. streets flooded. >> oh, there it goes. >> thousands without power. meanwhile, the tropical storm season coming early in the east. ana gathering strength. the carolinas in the cross hairs. our weather team tracking all of it. highway fireball. a passenger bus explodes in flames after a chain reaction accident. >> semi is fully engulfed. >> over 30 people rushed to the hospital, lucky to escape with their lives. what triggered that fiery crash? caught on camera. close encounter. >> keep going! >> tourists at a famous national
park sent scrambling by a family of bears. >> watch out, little girl. >> the advice from wildlife experts this morning on how to protect yourself this summer. and george and amal's first fight? the hollywood couple proving they're just like the rest of us. >> i was like, actually -- that's kind of how it works. >> the habit he has that's driving mrs. clooney crazy. should have gone to that. >> hey, good morning, guys. we're going to start with the breaking weather news on two fronts. right off the east coast, ana the first named storm of the season, has now just officially become a tropical storm, as it lurches closer to the carolinas. >> meantime in the middle of the country, 30 million americans are in the cross hairs. as a violent system brings high winds, massive hail.
twisters, and drenching rain. we want you to watch and listen to this. that is the downpour of tennis ball-sized hail in one backyard. we have team coverage this morning. bazi kanani is in the carolinas. we kick it off with rob in the threat zone in oklahoma right now. good morning, rob. >> reporter: good morning, paula. what's been difficult here in oklahoma city is that these storms have come day after day. the damage done earlier in the week by a tornado that came through the southern part of town has been difficult to clean up and recover because torrential rain keeps coming through. this is a motel that took a beating with the storm that came through on wednesday. last night here and across the plains another round of severe storms struck. >> oh, there it goes. it's going. >> reporter: overnight, wild weather whipping through oklahoma and texas. hail the size of tennis balls pummeling oklahoma.
making roads nearly invisible and blanketing the ground. severe flooding from heavy rains and that melting hail taking over much of the state. while over 70-mile-per-hour winds pulled down power lines and ripped off roofs. thousands of people left without power. highway flooding so bad leaving this semi truck overturned. rainfall in parts of the state exceeding three inches an hour. on top of the severe weather threat, many of the exposed homes now here in bridge creek have to deal with, at times, torrential rains as they try to clean up. windows blown out at a local ymca. lightning likely starting this dangerous fire in an industrial area. look at this tornado-warned supercell in texas. four reports of tornados in the state. now beginning its fourth day of significant severe weather. more storms expected across the plains all weekend. putting more than 30 million people at risk. and after all of that now our attention turns to the storm
that wept through california. now in the rockies. it will invigorate the atmosphere here again in the plains. the swirl across the four corners will bring snow to parts of the rocky mountains. lit bring more jet stream energy and cold aloft to get things fired up here. watch out for the panhandle. later today, more watches and warnings. the greatest threat across parts of texas, west of dallas. and the bull's eye where we think the most damaging tornado, strongest, longest, parts of west kansas and western oklahoma, out toward dodge city. tomorrow the threat spreads off to the east. it will get into more populated areas. mother's day will be a dangerous one from the northern plains to gulf of mexico. one of the reasons, the weather pattern is jammed up in part because of the high pressure and heat across the northeast. and below that what now tropical storm ana, which has
been swirling across the carolina coast. dan, back to you. >> lets get more on ana. just before we came on the air, ana officially became a tropical storm. and hurricane season doesn't start for a month. bazi kanani is in myrtle beach, south carolina, where they're bracing. bazi, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. we can definitely see out here that she is coming. the surf is kicking up. there are rip currents out there already much too dangerous for a swim. on what's a busy tourist weekend here in myrtle beach and much of the carolina coast. also putting a damper on those plans, the rain, which is really moving in now. it's expected to be increasing throughout the day. the winds are picking up. we could see wind gusts up to 55 miles an hour. when tropical storm ana moves in by early sunday morning. so possibly some downed tree branches. minor flooding expected in the area. ana's early arrival, a warning shot, at least three weeks ahead of the typical start of the atlantic hurricane season.
paula? >> all right, bazi. thank you. and we want to move now to the big nfl headline and the scandal surrounding superstar quarterback tom brady. he and football fans everywhere they are anxiously awaiting if he'll be suspended by the nfl in the wake of the bombshell deflategate report. ryan smith has the story. the big question, ryan. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula. the nfl has told us that there has been no decision on deflategate and no timetable for one. the controversy continues to ensnare brady. ho was all smiles in front of a hometown crowd of thousands on thursday when he answered questions about that deflategate report. this morning, the nfl telling abc news they have not made a decision on deflategate. >> touchdown. >> reporter: this, as new england patriots star quarterback tom brady broke his silence thursday. his first appearance since the report said the quarterback was generally aware of staffers' attempts to deflate game-day
footballs. >> is the super bowl tainted? should there be an asterisk? >> what do you guys think? [ crowd booing ] >> reporter: his response firing up pundits across the sports landscape. >> yo, they're calling you a cheater. >> the coverup is worse than the crime. >> reporter: penalties for the patriots franchise still uncertain. though some say it's a possibility. >> we look at possible discipline, you're looking at a fine. potential of a suspension. potential of lost draft picks. >> reporter: the 243-page report seemingly implicated brady in the scandal, in part because of a flurry of text messages between two members of the equipment staff. jim mcnally, referring to himself as the deflator, asking co-worker john jastremski to get brady to pay up if he wanted the balls inflated the way he liked. mcnally texting, let's make a deal. come on. help the deflator. >> is tom brady a cheater?
>> i don't believe so. >> reporter: brady, denying cheating in january. and this week, brady's agent, don yee, calling the report a significant and terrible disappointment. the nfl had no comment on brady's remarks. brady says he hasn't really digested the 243-page report. he said he usually reads xs and os. and that report was just a bit longer, guys. >> you were in the room for that hearing, that event yesterday in boston. sounds like it was pretty enthusiastic crowd. >> he wouldn't let anybody in the room because it was more for fans. it was something that you bought tickets to in advance. there were thousands outside in the parking lot. going blocks long, chanting for brady. >> a friendly audience. >> yeah. >> all right. >> a hometown crowd. >> regardless, it's hard not to like the guy. he's very affable. very likable. almost just like you, ryan. >> oh, why thank you, paula. >> almost. >> and just like ron. and speaking of ron, ron joins us with the other stories. that we have been tracking overnight. good morning to you, paula and dan. ryan. good morning, everyone. we begin with a chain reaction crash on a busy u.s. interstate
highway that triggered a massive fireball. and abc's marci gonzalez has this story. >> reporter: the flames so intense -- >> we have never seen anything like this happen around here. >> reporter: -- drivers in passing cars could feel the heat. >> semi is fully engulfed. >> reporter: two semis, several cars, and a packed shuttle bus igniting on interstate 80 in iowa in a chain reaction crash that sent at least 32 people to the hospital. >> the interstate is blocked. >> reporter: traffic from an early accident backed up for miles, when the driver of a semi hit the brakes. investigators say this shuttle bus, owned by a construction company, slammed into it. both bursting into flames. >> in broad daylight, with no weather to cause anything. >> reporter: more than two dozen employees on board that now charred bus incredibly managed to escape. >> everyone is out of the vehicle. the driver is out of the semi. it's engulfed. >> reporter: a rush of patients brought to hospitals in and around iowa city with burns and broken bones.
>> this is something that we're trained to do. and that i think we do very well. >> reporter: all escaping this fiery scene with their lives. and two of those survivors are listed in critical condition. iowa state patrol hasn't said whether any charges could be filed. ron? >> thank you, marci. marci gonzalez reporting. and thousands of military installations across the u.s. are on higher alert because of growing concerns about home grown extremists. pentagon officials say these beefed up security measures don't stem from any specific threat. the bulletin comes after a warning by fbi director james comey that there are hundreds of active isis followers right here in the u.s. officials in australia say they have foiled a teenager's terror bomb plot. the bomb squad raided this house friday in an upscale area of melbourn. allegedly seizing several
homemade ieds. police don't know when the 17-year-old boy who is apparently the son of a doctor planned to detonate the home-made bombs but say the attack was imminent. and in atlanta, a plane crash on one of the busiest highways in the country. the plane crashed shortly after takeoff. on interstate 285. somehow this plane managed not to hit vehicles. the aftermath of the fiery crash caught on camera. all four on board, a father, his two sons, and one of the son's fiances were killed. they were traveling to a graduation. a weekend of celebrations commemorating the 70th anniversary of victory day, marking the end of world war ii in europe. a huge military parade and solemn ceremony in moscow as president putin, the rush wran president and several word leaders honor the people killed in that war. meantime, queen elizabeth lit the first of 200 beacons. in the u.s., dozens of world war ii planes flew over washington, d.c. on friday to celebrate the anniversary of v.e. day. and the united center buzzing, coming to life after a three-point buzzer-beater, you
see it there by derrick rose. nailing that shot off the backboard. maybe by accident. giving the bulls a 2-1 series lead over lebron james and the cavs. playoff action resumes today with golden state. the warriors travel to memphis to battle the grizzlies. game three of the western conference semifinals tonight on abc. 8:00 p.m. eastern time. >> that was no accident, by the way. >> did he bank that in? >> you don't think so? come on. >> that was not an accident. he's that good. >> i, well, i disagree. i know he's that good, yes. >> he's a skilled professional. let's give it to him. >> yes, go bulls. >> they won the game. that's what matters. we're going to switch gears to a story of drama and anger in the courtroom. a mistrial in an iconic missing child case. the disappearance of etan patz back in 1979 sparked the movement to find missing children. but in the murder trial of a man who years later confessed to killing the boy, a lone holdout juror led to a hung jury. etan's father frustrated and now calling for a retrial. our newest correspondent, phillip mena has this story.
phillip phillip, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. deliberations lasted weeks. twice the jury informed the judge they were deadlocked. in the end, the jurors could not agree on a conviction. this morning, new york prosecutors are deciding whether to retry pedro hernandez. a judge declaring a mistrial on friday after just one juror says he could not agree to convict the 54-year-old for the murder of a manhattan first grader more than 35 years ago. >> ultimately, i couldn't find enough evidence that was not circumstantial to convict. i couldn't get there. >> reporter: his fellow jurors expressing strong disagreement after a post trial press conference overnight. >> pedro hernandez, you know what you did. >> reporter: for 18 days, the jury was repeatedly sent back into deliberations. despite pedro hernandez confessing to police that he kidnapped and killed 6-year-old etan patz, who vanished on his way to school in 1979. >> for me, his confession was very bizarre.
i felt like mental health issues were a huge part of the case. >> reporter: the defense arguing that hernandez's 2012 confession was coerced, a result of mental illness. patz's father refused to believe it. >> this man did it. he said it. how many times does a man have to confess before someone believes him? and it's not a hallucination. >> reporter: the decades old case helped change the way law enforcement searches for missing children. >> this case seemed to galvanize public opinion. >> reporter: ray kelly, new york's police commissioner when hernandez was arrested, was also with the department at the time of patz's disappearance. >> you say disappointed? i think that comes with the territory. >> reporter: etan's family says, after all these years, they do have closure for their little boy's murder. but still no justice. no physical evidence tying pedro hernandez to the murder was ever found. now it's up to prosecutors to decide whether they'll pursue a retrial.
next hearing is june 10th. that is when we'll get a better idea of hat prosecutors want to do. >> i feel for the father. it's got to be incredibly frustrated. on a different note, paula and i want to welcome you to abc news. happy to have you. >> happy to be here. i can't wait for all the exciting things to come. >> absolutely. >> welcome to weekend "good morning america." and to the abc family. >> thank you so much. >> we'll keep you hopping. all right. thanks, phillip. now, we want to move to a terrible case of mistaken identity in which the cops shot the wrong person. it was a home invasion gone awry. the person who called the police wound up getting shot by the police. the crooks, meantime, got away. and the homeowner is now saying that he made a mistake. steve osunsami explains. >> he's inside my house. >> he is? okay. >> yes, hurry. please hurry. >> reporter: this morning, the 26-year-old on the line calling police for help remains hospitalized. shot by one of two sheriff's deputies who answered his call who are both now suspended.
>> we're as sorry as we can be. >> reporter: brian heyward is telling the operator that two men with guns were breaking into his home. >> someone is trying to break into your home? >> yes, they have guns. >> reporter: the two white sheriff's deputies were worried they were walking into a gunfight. according to the police report, richard powell and keith tyner saw a gunshot hole in the front window. police say they didn't know the alleged burglars were already gone. police say when heyward walked out the back door with a gun, they had no idea he lived there. and say that when they asked him to put the gun down and he didn't deputy keith tyner fired. [ gunshot ] >> it is a tragic situation. >> reporter: the sheriff's office, realizing the appearance of white deputies shooting black homeowners, is releasing audio from the ambulance. >> i should have put the gun down. but i didn't. >> right. >> and he thought that i was the crook. >> reporter: the family says
what police did here was wrong. they never should have been interviewing their son while he was suffering from a gunshot wound to the neck. >> i don't think he should have been questioned at that point. right about now, we're just looking for the truth. >> reporter: for "good morning america," steve osunsami, hollywood, south carolina. >> our thanks to steve osunsami this morning. now we move to a cautionary tale caught on camera as we head into the summer tourist season. look at this. a family of bears chasing tourists in yellowstone national park. and here's abc's kendis gibson. >> keep going! >> reporter: a trip to iconic yellowstone national park taking a terrifying turn. >> go, go! >> reporter: a black bear and her thee cubs unexpectedly appearing on a bridge, lined with sightseers earlier this week. sending them running. watch as the mother bear, seemingly equally terrified, charges one family as they scramble for their car. >> watch out, little girl. >> reporter: this group of photographers clicking away. as one of the young bears seems to explore an escape route. picking up the pace once the mother joins her cub.
the bears and the humans part ways without any attacks or aggression. but officials say this run-in -- >> go, go, keep going! >> reporter: -- is a perfect example of the dangers in the national park that draws 3 1/2 million visitors a year. >> a mama bear with cubs is not something you want to try and get too near to at all. >> reporter: spring may be the park's peak tourist season. in addition to bringing out more visitors, this warmer weather also brings out more bears. >> these bears do wake up with warmer weather. they're thirsty. they're hungry. and they come out. this is their time of year. >> reporter: according to wild life experts, the best defense is to keep your distance. yellowstone regulations require visitors stay at least 100 yards away from bears at all times. >> it's a beautiful animal we can all enjoy. it's their home. treat them with respect. film them at a distance. that's all. >> reporter: that sounds like a plan to me. luckily, no one was injured. the parks department posted this video as a warning. a cautionary tale.
dan and paula, apparently they're saying that running and flailing your hands and screaming is not how you're supposed to respond to bears like that. >> really? that's how i respond to pretty much every stimuli. >> reporter: that and crying. >> all right. kendis, thank you. reminds me of you, the mama bear. don't mess with paula faris' kids. >> do not mess with mama bear. i will chase you down. >> i have a similar shot of her chasing me down the street with her kids. it was with -- it was weird. >> sara, i would never do that. i would hunt anyone that would hurt my cubs. >> somebody that would never hurt a cub. >> rob. >> rob marciano, out in oklahoma city. how are you doing? >> you don't mess with paula and her bear cubs. dan, when we go storm-chasing later on maybe you could hang your head out the window and scream with your hands in the air. that would help. ana, now a full-on tropical storm. 100 miles away from myrtle beach.
drifting in that general direction. tropical storm warnings up from morehead city to charleston. landfall probably late tonight, early tomorrow. a formidable storm with high winds and heavy rains and pounding surf there. meanwhile, what's helping getting this storm kicking is the storm that's in the west. now into the rockies. it's going to stir up the severe weather that we've been talking about here in the plains. lit bring heavy snow the colorado rockies and the wyoming and montana rockies. lit bring another round of heavy rain here in the plains. could see an additional two to four, maybe five inches of rainfall in areas that have already being socked with heavy stuff. meanwhile, a dryer day across parts of the west. 71 expected in los angeles. in the '70s

this morning, anjelika graswal's attorney is calling for her release, saying new york state police rushed to judgment. >> this attorney is not telling us what she's charged with. what she's indicted for. we think she's being held wrongly. >> reporter: she's not been before a judge since her arrest ten days ago for the murder of her fiance vincent viafore. even though his body hasn't been found. police citing inconsistencies in her story. >> that led us to suspect something other than a tragic accident had occurred. >> reporter: graswald sharing that story with the local news, just four days after she reported 46-year-old viafore's kayak capsized in choppy waters on april 19th. >> and then i just saw him flip. >> reporter: but in the days after, her activity on social media inviting scrutiny. changing her facebook status to these carefree poses. even uploading this seemingly light-hearted video of her returning to the place where she
met viafore. >> driving at the cornwall yacht club. yes. >> reporter: her defense attorney, richard portale, says the latvian citizen's behavior is a cultural misunderstanding. >> she comes from a society where weakness, whether it's in the form of sorrow, grief, fear -- is frowned upon. >> reporter: insisting the couple was happy. did she stand to gain financially from vincent's death at all? >> absolutely not. i know that he did have a life insurance policy. but she was not named as the beneficiary. and she knew that. >> reporter: one possible motive being explored by police, diary entries made by graswald in which she complains about sexual requests from viafore. but portale says that doesn't prove anything either. >> you said cultural differences. >> she's a latvian citizen. there may be cultural differences. and there may be something lost in translation. it's not her first language. >> english is a second language
