"don voyage." question this morning, can donald survive this? much more on this story coming up. but we do start here with the extreme weather coast to coast. from carolinas to california, flash flooding and damaging thunderstorms.
7:02 am
>> the southwest especially hard hit. look at the radar from the last six hours, the atmosphere crackling with rain, thunder and lightning. rob is all over the story this morning. good morning, rob. >> good morning, dan. this is monsoon season where we get thunderstorms in the desert southwest. this is what's left over from major hurricane dolores. moisture that's beneficial for california but a tremendous amount of moisture crossing problems across the desert southwest. overnight, torrential rains leaving the flash flooding across arizona. a few inches in a few hours. >> oh, my god. i can't believe that. >> reporter: all that water running downhill quickly. watch as these campers are overtaken by raging floodwaters. >> scary, really scary. >> reporter: in phoenix, this time lapse showing storm clouds moving in, bringing a heavy down burst of rain and wind. in southern california, lightning and severe
7:03 am
thunderstorms left thousands without power and shut down beaches on saturday. >> the threat is very real. lightning strikes can be deadly. >> reporter: in ohio, dramatic lightning streaking across the sky. bolts of lightning from dangerous storms in north carolina. a powerful storm with lightning striking the steeple of the bethlehem baptist church in north carolina on saturday. 100 firefighters were called in to battle the blaze. one person was injured and treated at the scene. back to the west we go, this is dolores, a shell of its former self. the tropical remnants throwing moisture into the southwest. couple more days of this. and because of that, flash flood watches have been posted for much of southern california, arizona and southern nevada, including las vegas. here's our future radar, and we expect the rain to continue to spiral up through san diego. los angeles. getting up into santa barbara as well. some of this beneficial. but again, some of it will cause flash flooding. on the other side of the country, a severe weather threat today, a lot of humidity will
7:04 am
build up and the cold slice from indianapolis to cleveland. and then through up state new york. gusty winds, hail, possibly some tornadoes. tomorrow, st. louis, back in the threat zone. with more in the way of thunderstorms. more weather coming up in just a bit. paula. >> look forward to more in a built, thank you, rob. and now to the race for the white house. it's your voice, your vote. and this morning, donald trump is drawing scorn from both sides of the aisle after mocking senator mccain's war record. calling him a loser and saying he's not a war hero. this seemingly has to be the last straw from his last gop rivals who want him to end his campaign. abcs's cecilia vega is here. pretty inflammatory words for trump. >> reporter: good morning, guys, another week, another political firestorm courtesy of donald trump, just as quickly as he lobbed an attack, this time, the hits came right back at him. >> you're fired. >> reporter: this morning, donald trump has the political world fired up once again. but this time, he may have gone after the wrong person -- john
7:05 am
mccain. >> he's not a war hero. >> reporter: the brash billionaire saying mccain, a former navy fighter who spent 5 1/2 years as a p.o.w. during the vietnam war, was actually no war hero at all. >> he's not a war hero. >> he's a war hero because he was captured. >> reporter: well, fellow republicans did not like that. nearly every single gop candidate running for the white house firing back. >> i will denounce anyone -- anyone who speaks ill of someone who has been a prisoner of war. >> reporter: former florida governor jeb bush tweeting, enough with the slanderous attacks. former texas governor rick perry saying, trump's comments make him unfit to be commander-in-chief. mccain's daughter meghan saying she's horrified, disgusted, there are no words. and across the aisle, democrats outraged, too. >> there is nothing funny about the hate he is spewing. >> reporter: mccain isn't commenting. trump's war hero rant seen as payback for the arizona senator's recent public comments
7:06 am
accusing trump of firing up the crazies with these now famous words. >> they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. they're rapists and some i assume are good people. >> reporter: but trump is not backing down. the donald not just refusing to apologize, he doubled down, saying mccain has done so little for veterans. the controversy only seems to be helping so far. the latest poll showing trump surging to the head of the republican pack. here's that front page, "don voyage." some say that this recent attack may have done his candidacy in. >> something that's going to galvanize both sides as well. thank you, cecilia. let's stay on this story and let's go down to washington and abc's martha raddatz who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. martha you saw the cover of
7:07 am
"the new york post." "the new york times" also saying, i'm quoting here, probably mark the moment when trump's candidacy went from boom to bust. what's the sense in washington, can he survive this? >> well, i think you just have to look again at those comments that cecilia went through right there and remember john mccain's service, he said that he's only a war hero, said donald trump, because he was captured, i think it would be pretty hard for john mccain not to be captured. he was shot down, i think he was on his 28th bombing mission over north vietnam, broke both legs as he ejected from his fighter aircraft. broke an arm. he was tortured as cecilia said, held 5 1/2 years. all of those comments saying, it's not just about john mccain, it's also about veterans, and we still have a lot of service members out there fighting on the battlefields, around the world. >> criticism from the republican party has been much sharper on this one than trump's comments on mexican immigrants.
7:08 am
do you think the party views it as a chance to drive trump to the sidelines? >> i think the republican party probably does. there have been statements from the republican national committee as well, and they have come together and have said these are completely inappropriate comments. i think some people will try to step in and say, wait, wait, what about me? i'm moderate. and you have rick perry who is also a veteran asking for trump to step aside. >> trump is not known for backing down. do we think we'll see an apology on this one? >> boy, we haven't seen one yet, dan. so i don't know whether you'll see an apology or not. he really did double down after making those comments. surprised a lot of people. we'll have to wait and see if there's any apology forthcoming. i just can't predict that. >> martha raddatz, we appreciate your analysis on this sunday morning. and a reminder that martha will have much more on this latest trump dust-up, and she'll also be speaking with secretary of state john kerry about that historic deal on the iranian nuclear program. that is coming up right here on abc. >> thanks, dan. we do have new details about that shooter who killed five members of the military in

7:16 am
>> reporter: the use of these remote-controlled devices are on the rise. authorities say it's the fourth time in less than a month drones have interfered with fire-fighting efforts. prompting the l.a. county sheriff's office to tweet this message to drone operators. if you fly, we can't. >> i don't think the public understands how this impacts our pilots. >> reporter: the fire has burned through 3500 acres so far. one one question that remains? whether or not the drone operators will be held liable for any property damage. they're looking into that but for now, that answer still up in the air. >> either way, let's hope that message gets through to the drone operators. thank you. now to the story of 20 harrowing hours off the coast of south carolina. two fathers and their two young sons treading water and kicking away sharks after their boat capsized. how they survived. who came to the rescue. sara is on the story. hey. >> yeah, this story ranks up there with one of my biggest
