in the south. thousands forced to evacuate. dozens rescued from raging waters and abc's phillip mena is in one of the hardest hit areas, wimberley, texas. good morning. >> reporter: where i'm standing was completely submerged. floodwaters were this high and rushed with so much force that they ripped these homes right from their foundation. >> oh, my god. oh, my god. >> reporter: across texas and oklahoma, deadly rain leading to catastrophic flooding. >> stay back. stay back. >> reporter: outside san antonio, this jeep cherokee getting washed down a river. miraculously the driver was able to crawl out the window of the suv before it was completely submerged. two others rescued by this black hawk helicopter near the blanco river. >> i kept calling them over and over and he was like, i don't know if i'm going to make it. >> reporter: that river rising 26 feet in just one hour cresting at 40 feet triple its

>> okay, let's get more on that. thank you, phillip. from rob marciano. these dangerous storms on the move. >> we'll get another round today. the past two weeks, we've been seeing this severe weather and heavy rainfall and finally the ground couldn't take it anymore. this is blanco, texas, one of several bridges not only in texas but oklahoma that were destroyed and this one is concrete. just downstream from that in wimberley we're talking about the devastated homes there. the river gauge rose to 43 feet. a record by 7 feet and that's before the record gauge was broken because -- so it could have went higher. thankfully it's receding somewhat. more in the way of flood warnings. you see that in red. oklahoma, eastern half of the state in flood warning. we've got another batch of rain coming today. another 2 to 4 on top of the areas already flooded. that plus severe weather and talk more about that throughout the program. >> thank you, rob. >> now to a different kind of danger this memorial day. deadly rip currents. one person drowning and dozens of others rescued from the heavy surf over the weekend. abc's gio benitez is at the beach in far rockaway, new york. good morning, gio.
>> reporter: amy, good morning to you. those people were just trying to enjoy the holiday weekend but right now if you're by the water, chances are a rip current warning is in effect right now. this morning, dangerous rip currents crippling waters from coast to coast. in florida on sunday, more than 130 rescues, in volusia county alone, one person drowning after he was pulled from the surf in daytona beach right in front of an unguarded lifeguard tower. beachgoers trying to revive him. >> trying to keep his head up and got him out and started doing chest compressions. >> reporter: rescuers in jacksonville spending the last two days combing waters by boat and helicopter. looking for a missing 11-year-old caught in the currents. the search has been called off. >> what they do have are warning signs which tell you not to go wading or swimming out here. because it's so dangerous. >> reporter: waters across the country under a rip current advisory from gulf shores all the way to san diego so how do rip currents form?
watch when waves break fiercely at the shoreline, a stream of water moving away from the beach can form taking a swimmer with it. so what should you look for? if there's a change in the water color or a line of foam or seaweed. those may be signs of a rip current and warning to stay out of the water. and the biggest mistake that some of those swimmers over the weekend made is that they were swimming near empty lifeguard stations. so you want to make sure that someone is on duty before you jump out into that water, amy. >> what else should people know about riptides, gio? >> reporter: you want to make sure to swim parallel to the shore if you're caught in one. you don't want to swim against that current. you want to make sure you're swimming sideways until you're out of that rip current and then you can come to the shore. >> okay, gio, thanks very much. there are a few more hours left on this holiday weekend and today is the busiest memorial day on the road in years. millions will be jamming the highways and linsey davis on the road in westchester county, new york. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george.

shooting of a black couple. dozens of demonstrators were arrested and police are bracing for more and abc's alex perez is in cleveland with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: the cries for justice are far from over. many here saying they will not let this verdict define this city. >> not guilty. >> reporter: those two words sending crowds of protesters on to the streets. of cleveland. over the weekend more than 70 demonstrators arrested. after a judge cleared cleveland police officer michael brelo of manslaughter saturday determining his use of deadly force was reasonable in the shooting deaths of timothy russell and malissa williams. >> it's a tragedy because nobody is being held accountable. >> reporter: russell and williams were killed in 2012 after leading police on a nearly 25-minute car chase involving more than 60 squad cars and 100 officers. police say they thought they were being shot at. several officers firing and brelo jumping on the hood firing 15 shots right into the
windshield. >> i thought we would get shot and be killed. >> reporter: but investigators processing the scene discovering russell and williams were unarmed. on sunday in cleveland, calm. but some are bracing for more possible outrage as the city awaits a decision in the case of tamir rice. the 12-year-old ohio boy who was holding a toy gun when he was shot and killed by police in 2014. the governor of ohio praising the city's response so far on this week. >> i think the people of cleveland have handled this -- i mean, they should be so proud of themselves and we should look at cleveland as a model. >> reporter: and the justice department says they will be reviewing the judge's decision. brelo could still face administrative charges from the police department. amy. >> all right, alex, thanks for the latest on that. we'd like to welcome abc's tom llamas to the news desk with the morning's other top stories. you start with a scare at the u.s. capitol. >> good morning, amy and george. we begin with that dramatic scene playing out in the nation's capital.
the bomb squad blowing up a pressure cooker found in a car on the national mall. thousands of people were gathering for a memorial day concert at the time. it appears police also pulled a propane tank from the vehicle. the driver was arrested but police insist there was no public -- no threat to the public. a body pulled from new york's hudson river has been identified as missing kayaker vincent viafore. his fiancee remains behind bars. charged in his murder. investigators say she told them she tampered with his kayak and watched as he struggled to stay afloat after his insurance money. her attorney says she's innocent. nearly 700 people have been putting 12-hour shifts to clean up that oil spill in the california coast. officials say the hard work is paying off. two beaches may open on june 4th. meanwhile, take a look at this. seaworld has rescued several oil soaked sea lions and birds. animals have been coming into shore covered in oil as far as 50 miles away from the spill. new video of a small plane
that crashed on to an atlanta highway bursting into flames and killing a family on their way to a college graduation. a police dash cam captured the terrifying final moments. it killed his father, two sons and a fiancee of one of the sons. the crash is under investigation. a loss of power is being blamed for stranding six people on a roller coaster in cincinnati. the three adults and three children were stuck 35 feet in the air. firefighters got all back to the ground safely and unhurt. actress and comedian anne meara has died. she was one-half of stiller and meara with her husband jerry stiller. but she had a thriving acting career as well on stage and tv, meara had a recurring role on "all my children" and "the king of queens." just to name a few. she is also the mother of actor and director ben stiller and writer amy stiller. no word yet on the cause of death. anne meara was 85 years old. finally a gold glove catch at a minor league baseball game and it happened in the stands. check this out, the batter loses his bat.
it goes flying into the crowd but a guy grabs it one-handed. watch the slo-mo here. he actually backhands it. his beer is also in his other hand. he did not spill a drop. okay, he is wearing a harvard jacket to a minor league baseball game. he's that guy but with those ninja skills, he can wear whatever he wants. and the funniest part about all this, the guy does this -- he saves women and children by capturing that bat he has to give the bat back because it's a minor league game. they don't have enough bats. >> did he get the keep the beer? >> yeah. he enjoyed that. >> maybe a free one after that. now to the greatest spectacle in racing, it was a thrilling finish to the indianapolis 500 but not before some wild crashes and abc's t.j. holmes is here with all the excitement. good morning, t.j. >> yeah, when we talk about these cars flying around the track. we don't mean that in the literal sense. there was particular concern that we would see a number of
these cars going airborne after a series of spectacular crashes during qualifying. but we can report everything stayed grounded yesterday and we had a fantastic race. >> and the winner of the indianapolis 500 is juan pablo montoya. >> reporter: an adrenaline activating nail-biting finish. juan pablo montoya celebrating inside his car winning the indy 500 for the second time in his career. >> oh, my god. it was awesome. >> reporter: but it was a rough start for the 39-year-old. his back fender even flying off early in the race and he only led a total of nine of the 200 laps. >> this is not a piece you can run without. >> reporter: the 500-mile race heart pounding from the start to the finish. countless crashes on the track, even on pit road. >> oh, a crash. >> reporter: just 12 seconds in two colliding. later on that same turn one car ripped to shreds. >> i'm okay. i'm okay. >> reporter: here in the green car ed carpenter spinning out of
control. this his second wreck in just seven days. carpenter first going airborne during last week's preliminaries along with three other drivers including james hinchcliffe who was critically injured after this fireball wreck missing the 500 instagramming from his hospital bed sunday, "kills me not being there". >> it's always great coming to the indianapolis 500 regardless of what the week was like but the week was crazy. >> reporter: off the track a star-studded affair david letterman making a post-retirement trip. to cheer on the car he owns. jeff gordan driving the pace car. mcdreamy himself patrick dempsey starting the race waving the green flag but back on the track for montoya, a day he will never forget. well, guys, the cars are using new aerodynamic kits which can maybe have an impact on some of the crashes. also, indy allowed to make adjustments so they could speed up the cars after the crashes they made the adjustments back the other direction so it slowed the cars down from going from 230 to 225 so not much of an
adjustment but a few miles per hour here or there can make a difference. >> okay, t.j., thanks very much. and today we honor americans who gave their lives for their country. there you're looking at arlington national cemetery. it's memorial day morning and the final resting place for so many who served. tonight bob woodruff is hosting a two-hour special on pbs about what happens when the troops return to their families called "the home front" and bob here with a preview. >> good morning. we don't hear the story enough and there is something brand-new really about the families engaged in the current wars. iraq and afghanistan. they have lasted longer than any other war in our history which means service members go to war, then home then back again while their kids and their spouses are trying to adjust. we got a very rare opportunity to meet them and tell their stories. >> it's definitely true the whole family serves. you're asking kids to move frequently. you're asking kids and spouses to be without their other spouse for long periods of time.
the deployments of the last 14 years have really been tough on families. >> this is the first generation of military kids that has grown up experiencing mom or dad being gone for multiple deployments. and we're working hard to understand what the implications of this lifestyle is for children. but we're not likely to really fully understand until, you know, they grow. >> we are engaged in the longest sustained combat operations in the history of our country and it is being done for the first time in our history with an all volunteer professional military force. and that does take a great toll on our families. it's been a struggle. >> i mean, every day you wake up. you know that the person you love is in harm's way and there's a lot of praying going on. >> bob joins us now. you know, you gave a preview of it right there. you've got these multiple redeployments for families. you'll take a real deep look for what it means for the kids. >> yeah, but there's never been
solid studies about it. the data is not completely out. it's been more than 13 years which is true but relatively brand-new but in the previous wars, you didn't have any of your kids until after you came back from the war. now you have the kids because voluntary and back and forth. as i said before, these kids are certainly affected by it because they're just seeing their dad or mom overseas. >> so many of us are so removed from the reality of this war. the number of people serving less than 1/2 of 1% of americans. >> a lot of neighborhoods don't have any that people know. it's actually less than 1%. more like 0.4%, yeah, of americans serving so we got to get that thing closer. that's one of the reasons for the piece we're doing. make sure those of us in the civilian world get to those those in the military because you'll realize we're all pretty much the same. >> bob woodruff, thanks for coming in. the damage from those severe storms and rob marciano. >> talk about the flooding earlier but there was severe weather that came along. damaging wind as cross arkansas and several reports of tornadoes. check it out.
the transformers down, the trees down. people without power there. over 100 severe weather reports yesterday and as mentioned a couple dozen of those were tornadoes. but i think a lot of those reports came out of this tornado across southwest kansas. plains, kansas, specifically. strong wedge tornado that did mild damage luckily in a fairly rural area. but here's where we expect the severe storms to pop again. another piece of energy coming into texas where they don't need it. dallas back through houston, san antonio and austin under the gun for large hail, damaging winds and maybe a few tornadoes. your local forecast 30 seconds away.

we're back now with nfl hall of famer joe namath weighing in on the crisis of brain injuries for former football players. he helped open a neurological research center and now claims an experiment treatment is helping to improve his memory. abc's matt gutman has the story. >> reporter: joe namath was good in the theater of football. famously guaranteeing a victory in super bowl iii. he was also good at taking hits. he still remembers some of the worst ones. >> it was a hard hit and a gold flash, man, i never will forget that. >> did you know you had a concussion? >> no, absolutely not. i don't know about concussions, but i had a lot of smelling salts.
>> reporter: all those hits took on new meaning for him after the suicides of football greats including junior seau. he says he suffered from forgetfulness so he had himself tested at the jupiter medical center where they diagnosed him with traumatic brain injury. >> you can see here's the right temporal lobe. >> there's huge asymmetry. >> reporter: you can see here how this section of namath's brain is dark. dr. lee fox says it's because it lacks blood flow. namath tells abc news that like others he had bouts of the blues. did you ever think of suicide? >> i've thought about that but i don't plan on doing that. no. >> joe, how many times do you think you've been in one of these chambers? >> 120. >> reporter: instead he started hyperbaric oxygen treatments at jupiter. they know that this compressed pure oxygen can heal wounds by creating new blood vessels and improving circulation. doctors here hoped it would
increase blood flow in the brain. doctors placed namath in these pressurized glass tubes 120 times over a 7-month period. each time he breathed in 60 minutes of 100% pure oxygen and found an improvement in blood flow in the brain and his cognitive abilities. were you surprised that it's -- >> certainly this is a very dramatic improvement. an area that was sleeping and dormant has now woken up, so to speak. >> reporter: now jupiter has an early phase clinical trial looking at hyperbaric oxygen and brain injury at the newly named joe namath neurological research center but doctors note this is uncharted territory in the prevention of degenerative brain diseases in athletes. >> joe namath may have increased blood flow in the brain but we don't know that that means he won't develop cte. i understand people are looking for hope here, but the data on hyperbaric oxygen doesn't show that it really works.
people shouldn't be spending their money on this. >> reporter: the trial costs up to $70,000 per person. the hospital says it's raising funds to cover that cost and hopes it can replicate namath's results in others. but broadway joe says his memory has improved and counts on being around for awhile. he guarantees it. for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, miami. >> and next up on our "gma" "the speed feed" oscar winner robert de niro's surprising message to graduates. got to be the commencement address of the year. >> can't wait for that. your brain on shopping. new research -- i was supposed to say surprising new research but i don't think it is. the question is are you actually on a high? ♪ y on a high? i'm an overprotective parent. this is a table cover, just in case she clunks her head. every house has hidden dangers. this is her safety vest, which she wears whenever she is outside. and worst of all, fleas and ticks. fortunately, petsmart has lots of flea and tick products. and they can help you find the right one for your pet. did you know flea babies eat their mom's poop? my...

>> what kelly rutherford will do is take that california court ruling and take it to a monaco court and say, you guys have to abide by this. if the court says no, then you have a serious possibility of an international incident. >> reporter: rutherford first took her case to federal court where her request was denied. i sat down with her last month just days after that ruling. how does it feel at this point? are you more frustrated or angry or sad? >> i could sit here and tell you how often i cry. i can tell you how it feels to leave my kids in a foreign country to go see them after not seeing them for weeks on end, not being able to take them to school, pick them up from school. dress them. smell them. hug them. >> reporter: the actress now hopes those moments aren't far off traveling to monaco this week to retrieve her children telling abc news she is optimistic that mr. giersch after reviewing the order will cooperate fully. giersch has not returned our request for a comment. for "good morning america,"
linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> thanks to linsey for that. family law specialist steven mindel joins us. steven, thanks for joining out. a pretty big shift in the case over the weekend giving her sole custody. what's the reasoning behind it? >> this is a big win for kelly, clearly, but the reasoning behind it is they went in ex-parte which means they didn't give the other side notice. they went in, explained to the court there's a lot going on here in terms of whether or not daniel giersch is actually complying with the court orders and the judge said i want to take a look at it. >> what do you think we'll see happen in the immediate future with her children? where will they live? >> well, where they're going to live is going to be one big question. what we'll see in the immediate future is they're going to be on a plane flying to california to meet with this judge on june 15th. >> so they'll be coming to california and how likely is it that this custody arrangement will actually become permanent and kelly will be able to maintain sole custody?
>> well, that's a good question. the big issue in california is always which parent is best able to share? obviously these are international children. their dad is german. their mother american. they have to live somewhere. they have to go to school somewhere. the court is going to be acutely aware of which parent is best facilitating communication between the children and the parents and between each other. >> haven't the courts already determined this? >> absolutely. the court absolutely determined that since he can't come to the united states, it's in the children's best interest to be with him and force kelly to do the commuting. what she is saying is i want the children to live in the united states, go to school in the united states and force him to do the commuting. but we know he can't do the commuting. >> what options does the father have to fight this? >> well, at this point we haven't heard from him. this is all about her. she went to court. she didn't even give the other side notice which is highly unusual in california. so now what's going to happen is the judge is going to get a good look at this on june 15th.
may or may not make changes but clearly this is a wake-up call for daniel giersch. the judge is telling him, absolutely, unequivocally pay attention, follow my orders and you won't have any trouble. >> okay, steven mindel. >> thank you. >> next in the "heat index," the science of shopping. new research finds we get a powerful high from shopping. you won't believe what it can do to your brain. abc's mara schiavocampo has the story. >> finding a good deal makes me really happy. >> reporter: what woman doesn't love to shop but what if we told you shopping can give you the same pleasure as sex? >> i love this. >> reporter: to find out how that's possible we mounted a gopro on 30-year-old alex roberts. >> i'm excited to be shopping to be honest. >> reporter: to see what's going on inside her brain as she hits the stores. >> i love this. this is amazing. >> reporter: according to analysis provided by the facial

set off your brain in the pleasure center. they're hitting something in our human behavior that gets you to want to buy. we call it here buying yourself happy. >> okay, i'm in love with this but it's an extra small so we'll see if this fits. >> the lights, the music, immersing yourself in the feel good experience. >> reporter: but alex says learning the science behind her shopping habits won't deter her from getting that fashion fix. for "good morning america," mara schiavocampo, abc news, new york. >> there's a reason why they call it retail therapy, right? >> there you go. >> i guess. >> but there is a guilt afterwards, i agree. sometimes -- there's a fine line -- >> you get the high and crash with the low. >> trying all these connections. >> i think a lot of guys saw the headline shopping is as good as sex and running to the mall. figuring out what exactly is out there. next up on our "heat index."
