7:00 am
good morning, america. happening now, tornadoes tear through the midwest taking down trees as massive lightning bolts rip through the sky. this as tropical storm danny brews in the atlantic. it could strengthen to a hurricane. fed up. hillary clinton defiant facing questions once again about those e-mails she turned over to the fbi. >> did you wipe the server? what, like with a cloth or something? >> the democratic front-runner throwing up her hands in frustration. taking the stand, the young accuser in that elite prep school trial testifying about the fellow student who she says sexually assaulted her in a classroom as part of a sordid senior salute tradition. the defense firing back. the e-mails they say tell a completely different story. and breaking overnight home at last. rosie o'donnell reunited with
7:01 am
her missing daughter grateful after a terrifying week long search. >> i'm so happy that she's been found, rosie. >> thank you very much. >> how they finally found her 17-year-old safe and sound on the jersey shore. >> good morning, america. a lot to get to this wednesday morning. you saw hillary clinton taking some questions on her e-mails. well, a new poll out this morning, new cnn poll shows those questions may be taking a toll -- you see it right there. she's now dropped below 50% for the first time. bernie sanders coming on strong and donald trump closing the gap as well. jon karl will be here with more on that. >> a lot to get to on the political front. >> but first we want to get right to the severe weather, tornadoes spotted tearing through the midwest and ginger is here with the very latest on that, good morning, ginger. >> at least four reported tornadoes from eastern iowa to this one, that's livingston,
7:02 am
illinois, among the nearly 60 storm reports from the texas panhandle all the way to new england. >> i hope this thing is not coming at us. >> reporter: tornadoes tearing across northern illinois. >> tornado touching down. >> and eastern iowa. >> get in the basement. >> reporter: at wrigley field in chicago. >> all of a sudden it just opened up and poured. you couldn't get to the exit fast enough. >> reporter: tens of thousands of fans scrambling to take cover. a downpour at the cubs/tigers game. >> here comes the rain and it is really coming down. >> reporter: blinding rain in southeastern kansas and in omaha, lightning striking a tree too close. in missouri, 12 bolts illuminating the sky in less than 30 seconds and in charleston, south carolina, almost 4 inches of rain clogging streets swallowing underpasses. along that same cold front and low pressure system it will be the lower peninsula of michigan and half of the upper peninsula of michigan, traverse city,
7:03 am
lansing, grand rapids, all in the wind path, the primary threat then we have to talk about tropical storm danny. give you perspective. there's south america. this thing with max sustained winds of 50 miles per hour moving north-northwest and looks like it will run into dry air before it gets to the eastern caribbean. we will follow it, of course. for now back to george and amy. >> thanks very much. the race for the white house, your voice, your vote and some tough questions for hillary clinton on the campaign trail. democratic front-runner defiant during a testy exchange about her e-mails as that brand-new poll shows the questions may be having a bite. jon karl joins us with all the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. this morning there is yet another indication that hillary clinton is having trouble in the polls and also coming just as she grew visibly irritated when asked more questions about that private e-mail server. hillary clinton is literally throwing up her hands at questions about her private e-mail server. >> my personal e-mails are my personal business, right?
7:04 am
so we went through a painstaking process, and turned over 55,000 pages of anything we thought could be work related. >> reporter: in a testy exchange in las vegas clinton was pressed on weather she had erased the server she kept at her chappaqua home, before turning it over to the fbi. >> we have turned over the server. they can do whatever they want to with the server to figure out what's there or not there. but we turned over everything that was work related, every single thing. >> reporter: over the weekend in iowa, hillary attempted a joke about her deleted e-mail. >> you may have seen that i recently launched a snapchat account. [ cheers and applause ] i love it. i love it. those messages disappear all by themselves. [ laughter ] >> reporter: vegas she took another stab at humor. >> did you wipe the server?
7:05 am
>> what with like a cloth or something. no. >> reporter: but serious questions remain. the fbi is investigating whether classified information in the former secretary of state's e-mails was mishandled and the tens of thousands of e-mails clinton admits deleting because she says they were personal. messages the fbi believes it may be able to recover. and in that new poll out this morning, george, 56% of voters say they believe that hillary did something wrong with her e-mails, yet, again, another indication that this is taking a toll on her campaign. >> yeah, it also shows her potential opponent is closing the gap including donald trump. >> reporter: first look at the democratic matchup. for the first time we see hillary clinton below 50% at 47%, bernie sanders rising 29%. joe biden, not even in the race at 14% and then there's the trump matchup. if you look at it now hillary clinton barely leads in a hypothetical matchup against donald trump, just six points
7:06 am
there. only a month ago trump had a 16 -- i mean was 16 points behind hillary clinton. >> that is really remarkable. also, little vignette from the campaign trail. we saw marco rubio, the perils of trying to be a regular guy in yeah, so take a look at this. he tries to throw a pass to that little kid, hits him right on the head. in fairness to marco rubio, george, it was a pretty good pass but rubio later said the quarterback always gets the blame. >> always gets the blame. >> the kid was fine, by the way. the kid was fine. >> thank goodness. he took responsibility and is a pretty good football player. jon, thanks very much. now to a very frightening moment for passengers on board a u.s. airways flight. the jet slammed into the runway and scraped its tail during an aborted landing before coming in safely on its second try, and our aviation correspondent, david kerley, is covering the story now from washington. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. federal safety investigators are probing this incident very
7:07 am
deeply and secured both black boxes, an incident that could have easily been a disaster. a us airways a321 slammed on to charlotte's runway this weekend while trying to land taking out landing lights, scraping the bottom of the tail. >> he bounced it, went around and he's the one that had tail strike damage. if he had a tail strike he might have dropped some pieces all the way down the runway. >> this could have come within feet of being a terrible aircraft mishap. >> reporter: surprisingly the pilots may not have been aware they struck the ground. they were hitting the power to go around and try to land again. >> it really felt like a rocket ship going back up after we hit the ground. it was scary. >> reporter: the problem wind shear a column of air moving down ward quickly which can develop swiftly and strongly making landing difficult. >> we had about a 20 knot wind shear loss at about, oh, about 10 feet above. >> it tells me this came as
7:08 am
close as you possibly can to having a major catastrophe. he hit the ground, he hit the lights. he ran the tail along the ground before he was able to get airborne again. >> reporter: after that second landing, a safe landing the pilot was able to get outside the aircraft and see the damage, those black boxes should tell him how the wind hit the aircraft and what the pilots did to react. >> yeah. it came in hard and fast. thanks. the latest now on former subway spokesman jared fogle expected to plead guilty of charges of possessing child pornography. alex has more details. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. fagel arriving at the courthouse a short time ago. the u.s. attorney is expected to discuss this case a little later today. overnight abc news confirming jared the subway guy fogle is expected to plead guilty to charges related to a child porn investigation. subway quickly severing ties
7:09 am
with fog le following the news saying, we no longer have a relationship with jared and have no further comment. the 37-year-old former pitchman avoiding cameras last month outside his home in indiana, as fbi and state police spent hours raiding his house, removing computers and other electronic devices taking it into this mobile forensics van parked into the driveway. >> how is he doing? >> i think he's going to do very well. >> reporter: at the time sources told abc news the investigation was launched after the director of fogle's charity, russell taylor, was arrested on child pornography charges. he has not entered a plea and fogle severed ties with him after his arrest and they say fogle was cooperating with police. >> in 1998 i weighed over 425 pounds. >> reporter: fogle becoming subway's pitchman and a household name 15 years ago after losing 245 pounds he credits to a diet of subway sandwiches and exercise. and we did reach out.
7:10 am
at this point no comment from fogle or his attorney. george. >> okay, thanks very much. let's get today's other top stories from dan harris, starting with those devastating landslides. >> breaking news overnight. good morning, everybody. three men missing after they got swept up in a massive sea of logs and mud. 24 hours of heavy rain triggered three landslides in the coastal alaskan town of sitka. the force so powerful, they are all presumed dead and terrain is so unstable recovery efforts had to be called off and people are bracing for more slides. also breaking overnight. leaking gas leveled a motel 6 out of seattle. motel 6, reduced to rubble after a gas leak forced evacuation. officials say at least two guests remain unaccounted for at this hour. one gas company employee, critically injured, air lifted

7:12 am
reporting that brady is open to accepting some form of suspension but only for failing to cooperate with the nfl rather than deflating game balls. general motors could soon become the first detroit automaker to sell cars in america that are made in china. gm is looking to import this car, the buick envision, compact crossover made at a plant in beijing. the auto workers union has already blasted the idea. check this out. next time you write a restaurant review on yelp, you can also weigh in about the government. the federal agencies from the tsa to the irs to the national park service are getting their own yelp pages. the government says the reviews that are posted will be taken seriously and will be used to improve service. get ready for a tsunami. finally, any time the "gma" chieftains let me fill in for amy there is a real risk i will finish the newscast with a cat video. this morning it's happening again. look at this baby who cannot contain herself every time mommy brings the cat over to the crib.
7:13 am
check her out. she's in her little sleep sack laughing uncontrollably at the mere sight of the cat. the feline characteristically is entirely unmoved and in fact steps on the baby. i have an 8-month-old who is obsessed with our cats. our cats detest him because every time we bring them close to him he tries to rip their faces off. yeah. >> squeeze them. >> don't you think you ought to take his side in this? >> no, no. i'm taking the cat's side. >> good luck with that, dan. all right, thank you. now to that big news about the so-called female viagra. the fda approving the little pink pill for the very first time after previously rejecting it twice. "nightline" anchor juju chang has the latest. good morning juju. >> it's being billed as a major potential breakthrough for low libido. the illusive holy grail for female sexual dysfunction even though technically unisex, this newly approved drug is still very much shrouded in controversy. this morning, the fda making a
7:14 am
big move approving a little pink pill that proponents say could revolutionize the sex lives of millions of women dubbed the female viagra, flibanserin which is marketed under the name addyi is specifically aimed at treating hypoactive sexual desire disorder, or low libido. which affects one in ten women. despite a vast array of drugs on the market that promote sexual arousal, addyi is the first for premenopausal women. it works different from viagra or cialis. which increases blood flow. according to the fda, this pill is designed to work on the brain blocking serotonin. evidence shows this chemical suppresses sexual desire. >> this is an enormous advance in women's health. of all of the sexual dysfunctions this is the by far the most common in every single age category and no options for women to offer up until now. >> not all doctors are promoting this pink pill.
7:15 am
some critics call it useless and unsafe with possible side effects like low blood pressure, nausea, dizziness and fainting spells. despite being rejected twice this past june ray number of women testified in front of a panel for the need of it. >> i had a wonderful, loving husband with no sexual feelings whatsoever. my marriage suffered greatly and so much so, that the conversation of divorce is on the table, stemming from my low sexual desire. >> that panel voting 18-6 in favor of addyi. now, the drug maker, says it will hit the market mid-october, but pills like viagra and scials are taken on demand which addyi, you need to take daily. its reported cost, $400 a month.
7:16 am
that could drop to as low as 45 to 75 bucks a month but only if insurance will cover it and that's very much unclear. >> that could be a big controversy. >> thanks very much. and dr. jen ashton will answer more about this pill in the next hour. right now, we get to that big relief for rosie o'donnell. her 17-year-old daughter chelsea missing for a week was found safe on the jersey shore after o'donnell made a plea for help on social media. abc's mara schiavocampo here with the latest. good morning, mara. >> reporter: o'donnell telling police her daughter left unexpectedly without a cell phone and was in need of her medication. the worried mom also spreading news on twitter. hours after that public plea a welcome break in the investigation. this morning, rosie o'donnell grateful after her missing 17-year-old daughter chelsea was found following a week-long desperate search. >> i feel so happy. >> i'm glad she's been found. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: according to authorities, the missing teen was found with an unidentified male and also obtained a new cell phone police were not aware of but do not suspect criminal activity. >> chelsea was located at a new jersey shore point and was of sound mind and body, was lucid, did not have any injuries,

7:31 am
with us instead of talking to his wife. >> that's part of the process. reconciliation. >> all in preparation for him being on the cover of "good parenting" magazine. that's all coming up. but we're going to begin with the dramatic testimony in the elite prep school trial. the young woman who says she was the victim of sexual assault accused a fellow student. and gio benitez has the story. gio? >> reporter: george, good morning to you. it was a surprise testimony right at the start of the trial. the girl saying she tried to stop that encounter. this morning, day two of the trial that could shake one of america's most elite prep schools, taking the stand tuesday right at the start, the girl who says this young man, owen labrie, sexually assaulted her in an empty room in the science building at st. paul's school breaking down while identifying him in the courtroom. >> do you see owen in the courtroom today? >> yes, i do. >> reporter: we're not showing you her face and we're distorting her voice.
7:32 am
but prosecutors say she was just 15 when a then 18-year-old labrie first e-mailed her inviting her to that upstairs room which she declined. >> how did you go about saying no to that? >> i sent an e-mail back to him. >> reporter: but labrie's attorney reading some of the student's online exchanges to the jury as part of his defense offering evidence that prior to meeting, the young woman wrote to labrie to meet only if it's our little secret. then e-mails after the alleged rape. >> owen to her, you're a gem. in response to you're a gem, you're not too bad yourself. i also lost my earring up there. life is hard. yes, life is difficult. ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. does this sound like texting where she was unwilling that night? >> reporter: both sides say the school has a culture of sex among some older male students. a tradition called the senior salute where graduating boys
7:33 am
would try to take the virginity of younger girls. >> there were students who believed that the defendant and some of his friends were competing to see who could slay the largest number of girls. >> reporter: labrie watching tuesday as the jurors visited the room where the alleged attack happened. he's pleaded not guilty and is expected to take the stand. the girl is now 16. she'll likely take the stand again today to finish her testimony. the school says these allegations are not emblematic of the students and faculty there. >> okay, gio, thanks. let's talk to dan abrams. probably two days of testimony from the girl and that's the whole case. >> they need her to be credible to the jury to even have a viable case at all. these jurors have to believe her but even if they do, they still have to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. and i think those text messages are going to be critical in this case.
7:34 am
>> the text messages. it's the messages that came after the incident. >> the ones that came before are not particularly relevant so she says let's keep this our little secret. to me that doesn't matter at all. the question is what happened afterwards. the text messages afterwards will be problematic for prosecutors no matter how you view it. no matter why she did it. those text messages could be the reasonable doubt that the defense needs. >> because that's all they need is reasonable doubt. it's possible they could believe she said no but also believe the text messages, would that be -- >> again, if the jurors think that this probably might have happened the way she says it, that's not good enough. this is one of those cases where the legal standard really matters. when you have to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt and there's the possibility that the jurors will say, yeah, i think it probably happened that way but proof beyond a reasonable doubt, i'm not sure of that. that's where the prosecutors
7:35 am
could have trouble here with convincing these jurors beyond a reasonable doubt and, look, by the way, i don't think it matters if you've got 11 men and 3 -- >> no? >> if it was 11 men and 3 women, i would say the same thing. i'm much more concerned about who they are than their gender. you could have 11 women who would decide to judge another woman. who knows what they're like. much more important what their background is than their gender. >> okay. fascinating case. dan abrams, thanks very much. now we turn to an abc news exclusive this morning, and hearing for the first time from two young men held hostage by a gunman suspected of killing a dentist and wounding deputies in jawbone canyon before he was tracked down and killed after a massive manhunt. abc's kayna whitworth has the story. >> reporter: you're 19 years old and you're like this is how my life is going to end. >> that's exactly what i

8:11 am
prove safety and efficacy over that of placebo, and i think that this is possibly another area that we're seeing gender inequality here. i mean viagra, drugs for erectile dysfunction have been available for almost 20 years. >> wow. >> why it's taken so long to get something for women is a big question. >> so, for women watching this, how do you know this drug could be for you? >> well, i think the first step is women have to talk to their doctors, their primary care doctors, their ob/gyns and therefore those doctors have to ask their patients about it. then we need to exclude medical causes that can contribute to low libido. this could be depression or a physical cause. you need to consider other forms of therapy like seeing a psychologist or sex therapist and ask yourself is this patient a candidate to take this drug safely? it can cause problems with blood pressure and it can interact
8:12 am
with alcohol and you have to make sure that the person you're prescribing it for can take it with minimum rick of side effects. >> speaking to that, what more needs to be known about this drug going forward? >> well, i think what i'm going to be looking for is obviously the safety and efficacy in patients who are taking it but it also needs to be formally studied in postmenopausal women and gay women. those two women were excluded from the clinical trial and they deserve attention and a good sex life also. >> and do you think the approval of this drug changes the discussion, the dialogue about women and sex in this country? >> absolutely. and, you know, i think if you take a step back from the specifics about this medication and the economic or financial aspects, the political or social aspects or the medical aspects, what we're doing is finally getting into a dialogue about female sexual health and the more we do that, the more we can talk about that in the context of overall health, and that's a very, very positive step in the right direction, and it's long overdue.

8:32 am
top of the mountain again. >> reporter: she chronicled her personal battles in battles in "gorge: my journey up kilimanjaro at 300 pounds." gorge has a double meaning. >> sure. it's the low point between two mountains and also if you eat too much. >> reporter: it's a journey fraught with personal drama. as a 9-year-old she dealt with her parents' divorce by hiding in the pantry comforting herself with snacks. why do people binge when they do it so secretly? >> it's about not feeling. it's about -- binging is about swallowing your feelings really. i would binge in private because then i wouldn't have to feel the hard stuff or even the happy stuff. >> reporter: as a 12-year-old during a sexual assault, she said she offered her attacker something to eat, which ended the attack. you said food saved me in the book. >> yeah, yeah, and maybe it did. maybe food saved me for a short time but like a lot of bad habits or addictions, it became the thing that consumed me. >> reporter: kara finally realized instead of radical
8:33 am
weight loss, she needed smaller sustainable victories to keep her obsessive eating under control. in 2011 she set out to climb kilimanjaro for a third time. >> climbing up to 9,000 feet is not pleasant in a lot of ways. >> you didn't get any help from the guides who were betting against you. >> if we're going to -- >> did you place any money bets? you should. bet on me. bet on me. >> reporter: kara reached the top of kilimanjaro once again this time weighing 300 pounds but no longer weighted down. >> i felt tremendous gratitude for the journey that i had taken, and there was a knowing at that moment that i was the one who had to decide which baggage that i would continue to carry with me. i'm not talking about my backpack. you know, kara very candidly told me she still struggles with food addictions but quieter. and rather than huge dramatic
8:34 am
efforts like climbing mountains, she's enjoying bite-size victories and savoring the adventures of every day like being a mom. >> inspiring. >> great story. thank you, juju. >> thank you. >> well, it's a pretty good day at work when you get to ride shotgun with nascar champ dale earnhardt jr. that pleasure and thrill was all mine when dale took me for a spin at the famous bristol motor speedway. ♪ i like to move it move it i like to move it move it ♪ that's me doing doughnuts in a convertible with nascar megastar, dale earnhardt jr. i didn't know you could do that without snow. >> you didn't know you could do it without snow? >> i'm from iowa. we did them in parking lots. >> reporter: well, you're not in iowa anymore, sara. actually i was riding shotgun with dale jr. in bristol, tennessee, at the famed bristol motor speedway, the fastest half mile in the country. >> whoo! >> reporter: "gma" got an exclusive sneak peek as mountain dew was filming a new
8:35 am
virtual reality video featuring dale earnhardt. why did you do this? >> this is a 360 experience where a fan can basically be in the moment. you know, you can take a look around wearing the 360 goggles and take a look around and you're in the experience. >> reporter: the technology is cutting edge. they've already done virtual reality videos for skateboarding. >> ah, this is awesome. am i going snowboarding? that's me with the goggles on tearing down a mountain on a snowboard. we met up with dale jr. at a burger joint near the track in bristol where they were rigging the car. will russell is the head of production. what makes this different than something we just shoot for tv? >> the big thing is the 360 so you're seeing everything in one shot. so these are six action cameras in a cluster. >> reporter: okay. >> and the reason they're in a cluster is because they're equally spaced to capture this way, that way, up, down. >> there's nothing missing. >> nothing missing. >> reporter: that means when fans put on the goggles, it will be just like riding shot of
8:36 am
gun with dale jr.? how close do you get? like what's a great turn for you? are you literally like an inch away? or is that too close? >> no, sometimes. >> who would you want to see in a virtual reality world? >> what would i like to experience? >> yeah. >> i think it would be great to be in a huddle on the field of an nfl game. >> you hear that, peyton manning? this is better than a roller coaster. and if you're wondering what video games dale played, super mario brothers like everyone else and the dale jr. will debut at the bristol night race august 22nd. that was amazing. >> so, everyone gets to do what you did. >> well, virtually. their stomach won't be tossed. i had a rough time with that. >> you did well. >> thank you. >> you smiled through the whole thing. >> i hung in there in let's head over to ginger. >> yes, that was so much fun, sara. now we're going to have fun with "ask zee." our question comes from 10-year-old sam vanderveen. he's from michigan.
8:37 am
his mother tells us he writes down the forecast every morning and reports it to his family. here's sam. >> what does the color yellow mean on the radar? >> that is an awesome question, sam. and to answer it, let's look at our radar. now, keep in mind different radar displays use different color tables, so it might be different when you look online. but in general green represents light rain. yellow to orange is moderate rain and red is heavy. when you look at radar you're seeing reflectivity. it's a measure of energy returned by the atmosphere. yellow to orange, 35 to 40 dbz, that's what we call it. dbz is decibels of reflectivity. we can talk more online. if your child has a good morning, i am meteorologist mike nicco with temperatures close to average or a little bit below with the warmest inland east bay at 90 and coolest at san francisco at 68. the seven-day forecast shows gray mornings and patchy drizzle
