7:05 am
we had roadways that were inundated with high waters. and we could not get the emergency units to the citizens that were requesting help. we just have been busy all night long. we had stalled vehicles on the roadways, blocked roadways. the power lines were out so the signal lights were not working. people were attempting to reroute to get into the neighborhood and you're faced with high water. you can't move forward, so it was just a nightmare for many people on the roadway. >> and you had all those people stranded at the playoff game as well. >> you know, that was basically a good thing. the stadium or the arena stayed open. the people stayed there. they stayed there -- really there's some that i think are still there. that was the best thing so that they didn't really get into that traffic cycle. we have some of the lower-lying roadways for our freeways, and they were inundated with water. some of them up to four or five foot. >> what are you look at this morning? >> well, right now we're trying to make a general assessment of where we stand.
7:06 am
i talked to the police and fire. you know, we always have to make an assessment of what they're able to do. some of the agencies and loss units or units have to be repaired. some of the fire stations and some of the facilities that law enforcement own and manage, they have been inundated with water. we have to make sure that we have roadway access to the hospitals. >> when is the last time houston had to deal with something like this? >> i do not recall that we've had one of this magnitude in years. i don't think there is anything in the archives that dictated we had anything of this magnitude. some areas we had up to over 8 inches of rain since 9:00 last night. and, you know, when the rain starts to come down, and it gets into the waterways, and it starts to spill out, problems just get a lot larger. >> well, good luck with it. mr. flanigan, thanks for joining us this morning. >> okay. have a good day. be safe. >> all right, george, thank you. >> people are tweeting there are
7:07 am
still some people inside that arena. it has been a horrible weekend all across texas. the severe storms leading to countless rescues. crews are searching right now for that family washed away in a vacation home, and abc's matt gutman is in dallas with that part of the story. matt? >> reporter: good morning, robin. i want to give you a sense of what rescuers are up against this morning, this spillway leads to the trinity river. now, normally i would be able to walk right across the top of it. obviously, not today. and over the past couple of days across texas that biblical rain making for some apocalyptic scenes. fatal flooding across texas, leaving at least six dead and more than a dozen missing. in texas, the blanco river rising 26 feet in a single hour bashing through bridges and homes. it's there that rescue teams are back out this morning searching for laura mccomb and her two children. >> she called me. she said, i'm in a house. i'm floating down the river.
7:08 am
tell mom and dad i love you and pray. >> reporter: their house breaking apart as it was swept down the river. somehow husband john mccomb survived. >> he is absolutely devastated. he did everything he possibly could to save them. >> reporter: also on the blanco, this suv swept away. >> here we go. here we go. >> reporter: you can see the driver inside. >> my god. oh, my god. >> reporter: suddenly, it capsizes, but somehow the driver escapes. >> there's the tornado. >> reporter: and it's not just flooding. at least 15 tornadoes touching down in the region. just a few miles from the texas border in mexico, a twister flipping cars onto houses. pancaking buses. 13 people were killed, including a baby, reportedly ripped from its mother's arms. back near san antonio, 18-year-old homecoming queen alyssa ramirez on her way home from the prom, losing her life when she got caught up in floodwaters saturday night. >> she did the right things. you know, she called 911. she called her father, but it
7:09 am
was just too much and too quick. >> reporter: experts tell us that if you feel your car is being swept up in a flood or being submerged, do not call 911. help may not get there this time. what you should do roll down the window unbuckle your seat belt. get out of the car. you'll have to try to save yourself. george. >> okay, matt, thanks. boy, those stories are just heartbreaking and the storm is not letting up. moving right through the middle of the country now targeting chicago and minneapolis. ginger tracking it all. >> the great lakes, the mid-south. now going to get that heavy rain and eventually the severe storms this afternoon and evening, but the heaviest rain happening in central mississippi and eastern louisiana. new orleans seeing strong storms moving through and a few still plaguing east texas. yes, houston, not quite done. we'll have a few days of reprieve. and then the heavy rains come right back to the same area. remember, it's not just texas, but flash flood watches all along the gulf coast there from arkansas to oklahoma city. we've got cities that have not only had their wettest month or may ever but their wettest month
7:10 am
ever and then the severe storms, the tornado, almost 200 severe storm reports and, remember, it is indianapolis, detroit, parts of nashville, louisville all included in the severe storms and also west texas or north texas especially and west oklahoma, so there's so much to talk about. i have a lot more coming up. >> all right. ginger, thank you. now to dangerous wind creating that scary scene on the beach in florida. take a look at this. a waterspout suddenly coming ashore sending this bounce house flying injuring three children inside. abc's gio benitez is in ft. lauderdale, florida, with that story. good morning, gio. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. that waterspout about 30 feet wide coming ashore right here, picking up that bounce house, and just slamming it into this concrete basketball pole. amazingly, all of those kids inside surviving. this morning, frightening video captured on the beach. watch. that's a waterspout spinning its way towards ft. lauderdale
7:11 am
beach. within second look closer it's on the sand becoming more of a dust devil. >> oh, bounce house! >> reporter: the spiral of wind heads right for a bouncy house with three kids playing inside, all under 8. the bouncy house rolls over and over until it soars right into the air. >> next thing you know, you see kids flying out of the bounce house. the girl hits the floor. the boy hits the floor, and the bounce house takes off. >> there's kids. >> reporter: watch again. beachgoers terrified. as the waterspout takes that bouncy house 15 feet into the air. a mother watching in horror. >> i was scared. it was frightening. i was like, oh, my god, i can't believe this. >> reporter: all three kids conscious and alert, injured but incredibly okay. this is one of the children, a.j. dent, released from the hospital overnight. waterspouts, known as tornadoes over water, are eerie columns of rotating air. they can quickly spin up in the calmest weather. they're common off the florida coast and can be several hundred feet wide.
7:12 am
>> oh, my god. >> reporter: last summer, wind turned another bounce house into a bucking bronco. this 11-year-old stuck inside. and in upstate new york, a gust of wind sends this bouncy house soaring with two children inside both seriously injured. but in ft. lauderdale, police saying there was little they could do to stop mother nature's wrath. >> it was fast it was furious and there was no way for us to prevent or respond any differently than what we did. >> reporter: and the good news here in florida, those kids in that bounce house do not have any serious injuries, george. >> that is just unbelievable. okay, gio, thanks very much. we're going to move now to breaking news in the war against isis. a major offensive launched today against the brutal terror group. iraq fighting to take back key territory it lost earlier this month. abc's jon karl at the white house and, jesse palmer, this comes after that explosive accusation from defense secretary ash carter. he said iraqi forces are losing because they lack the will to fight. >> that's right, george. defense secretary carter said
7:13 am
there's not. the united states can do if the iraqi army has no will to fight isis. the iraqis pushed back hard on that and this morning they are calling this a major offensive to take back anbar province. that is the largest province in iraq, one that's been controlled in part by isis for more than a year. we are told, george, the fighting has already begun and it involves not so much the iraqi army but shiite militias that are supported by the government of iran and also over the weekend, george, the iranian government said that the problem with isis is that it is the americans who lack the will to fight. >> and after that -- after that accusation from the defense secretary, the vice president actually had to apologize to the iraqis. >> reporter: that's right. he placed the call over the weekend. >> okay. jon karl, thanks very much. >> all right there, george. now turning to a frightening day of air travel. terror threats made against about ten flights. air force fighter jets scrambling to escort one of those planes to new york and abc's david kerley has the story.
7:14 am
>> emergency vehicles. change to frequency 121.65. >> reporter: this air france jet surrounded on the ground at jfk after it was shadowed in the air by two u.s. fighter jets. >> air france 22, shut down at your discretion. you may be there for awhile. >> okay, shutting down. >> reporter: passengers had no idea a thread had been phoned in. >> you see the police, you see the federal agents. whoo! >> i saw the fire departments, and we said, something must have happened. >> reporter: but this was just one of a rash of what authorities say were hoax threats. phone calls claiming a chemical weapon or bomb was on the plane. the threats made to local authorities. three flights into jfk, two into newark, one into boston. and fighting landing in oregon and illinois too. in all ten flights threatened. at jfk, passengers were on the tarmac, all clear, after dogs and security personnel go through the cabin and their bags. those fighter jets were scrambled and followed the jet
7:15 am
as it approached the u.s. coastline. for airlines and local authorities, there is little choice but to respond to these threats and that is not without a cost. >> other aircraft might have been to be delayed. it provides a disruption to the system far beyond one or two flights that may have received the threat. >> reporter: several of these threats have been made since 9/11. none of them have been real but they do have to take them seriously and so are the consequences. if this person is caught, it is a federal crime. robin, the sentence is up to five years in federal prison for threatening a jetliner. >> all right, david, thank you. now amy has the morning's other stop stories starting with breaking news that will affect possibly millions of cable users? >> that's right, robin. we begin with another media megamerger in the works. charter communications is set to acquire time warner cable for $55 billion making it the nation's second largest cable tv provider. the deal will likely face tough government scrutiny. and this t-shirt sparked a memorial day controversy for the clothing company pacsun.

7:18 am
>> oh, wow. >> he's clearly pumped up. he stands about six feet tall. >> he's been doing push-ups. >> look at that. he's making himself at home in one of australia's neighborhoods. and no one is trying to kick him out. got to give him some credit. he sure is one muscular marsupial. >> whoa. >> pretty impressive. >> have you ever seen anything like that? >> he's a kangaroo version of mike tyson. >> don't box him. >> never see it coming. >> ginger, so much flooding everywhere. >> 234% of their annual average. that's where austin is at. quick look at that river. it's just incredible the pictures coming out of there and, no, it is not done by the end of the week. more rain coming. we've got to get to that local cutaway now.

8:13 am
response has been overwhelmingly positive. women have been really happy to see motherhood and breast-feeding celebrated and out in the open. >> reporter: but not everyone will be seeing this cover exclusive to subscribers only. this is the cover appearing on supermarket stands. "elle" saying in a note from the editor in chief "not everyone walking through a supermarket is our target demographic nor are they all going to be understanding of the message behind this cover." >> i think it should be something that isn't covered up. it's a huge part of being a mother. it brought tears to my eyes because my two worlds collided at that moment. >> reporter: the editor in chief of "elle" australia defending her decision not to sell their iconic breast-feeding cover on the newsstands saying "in an idea world, no one would have an issue with seeing breast-feeding on the cover of a magazine. but this is not an ideal world" this is inspiring so many mothers if you look up the hashtag to take their own

8:17 am
after their divorce in 2009, giersch had his visa revoked. a judge ruled their children would live with him in europe. she told us how painful that is. >> i told my son, i said, you know, mommy is still fighting for you. my children, not only were they taken away, but they were sent to a foreign country. i don't know how you even explain to someone what it feels like. >> reporter: the 46-year-old mother says that last thursday she went to visit the kids. but giersch wouldn't allow it until she handed over their passports. rutherford then asked a california court to intervene. >> i know it's not right. everyone knows it's not right. >> reporter: rutherford's attorney tells abc news overnight she's grateful for the decision rendered by the california court and is looking forward to being reunited with her children. dan abrams here right now. so many different twists on this case. it was kind of unusual for the judge to award her the custody without giving the father a hearing. >> really unusual. it tells you how serious this california court thinks this violation is
8:18 am
this notion that she can't see the kids unless she turns over their passports? the california court immediately saying, that's unacceptable. now, remember this is in addition to other things he's done that violate the california court order. he was supposed to have applied for a visa. the state department confirms that hasn't happened. he was supposed to get an order that mirrored california's in monaco. instead, monaco now establishing the kids as residents of monaco. they're supposed to remain u.s. citizen children. i think there is a series of violations here that finally led this california court to say, wait a second. >> how about the fact that both parents should be able to see the kids? >> absolutely. look absolutely, and the question is just, how is that going to happen? i mean i think -- the end result is, how is it best going to happen that they can both see the kids? >> because, this is not over. this is not. it's been going on for some time. i'm sure the father will appeal. it's going to continue. >> absolutely. she doesn't have the kids yet. he's first got to get served with a california order. they have to inform him
8:19 am
about it. then they have the monaco court to deal with. >> she's going over there. that doesn't mean she'll physically be able to take custody. >> she was just in monaco. she's back in the united states. there's a hearing on june 15th. the kids have been ordered to come back to los angeles by june 15th for this hearing. the question will be, does he fight it? so, monaco has its own order. if monaco comes forward and says, sorry, we're not going to abide by the los angeles ruling, you then have an international incident. i'm convinced the state department will step in because you now have the california court unambiguous. >> could they actually extradite him if he say he's staying in monaco? >> they can't extradite him but they could take the kids. >> this is temporary custody. when it comes to permanent custody, what's the most likely outcome? >> june 15th is the time to have another discussion about this. but if he's confronted with this california order and he refuses to turn over the kids, i think that will be a further case for her in california.
8:20 am
to say, he's not abiding by any of your rulings. and that could really hurt him when it comes to the permanent custody. now, remember, if she were to get physical custody of the children, and there was a visitation, they would probably do what she's done before. she would make sure she was visiting with him in canada, mexico, bermuda, other places. >> some place neutral. >> exactly. but look, he's got the apply for a u.s. visa again. >> which he may not do. >> he hasn't done it. that was one of the fundamental requirements in the california court ruling. it said you got to at least try to get back in this country so the two of you can live with your u.s. citizen children here. he hasn't even tried. >> what a case. >> kids first. >> okay, thank you, dan. let's go outside to ginger. >> we're celebrating a 50th birthday. this is nancy from canada. and we're doing a little happy dance because the weather has been good for you. >> it's been great. >> perfect here in the northeast. far from perfect in houston.
