7:06 am
the rivers that are either still rising or in flood stage and this additional rainfall will slow that to say the least. flash flood watch out for 1 or 2 more inches of rainfall. this wave developing along the front that came through the northeast last night. and that will increase the rainfall. thank goodness there is not a tropical connection. and it will be drier tomorrow but in the next 24 hours, it looks like we could see 1 to 2, maybe more inches of rain, maybe more, especially columbia and south to charleston. more about the national forecast in a bit. paula, back to you. >> thanks, rob. now to the ominous scene breaking overnight in north korea. the government there putting on a show of military might. we're talking missiles, tanks, rocket launchers and thousands of soldiers, and the leader himself, kim jong-un, threatening that north korea is ready to stand up to america. abc's bob woodruff is right there and joins us with more. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning, paula. yeah, some very big news this morning, actually this has been a big event, a celebration of actually the 70th anniversary for the workers party but the thing was that the president, the supreme leader, kim jong-un
7:07 am
stood up up here on the balcony and made some comments and said their priority in their country is actually to strengthen the power of their military so they can deal with any possible wars in the future, especially with the united states. that was a very big point that he wanted to make while these troops were walking and goose stepping up and down the trees followed by the tanks and missiles and of course experts from if they will be more powerful, able to travel further, closer to the united states as they have in the past. this is a question being looked at. this was a very impressive event and as usual, the people were just shaking the ground with the weight of their boots. dan. >> bob woodruff right there on the ground in north korea. bob, thank you. we switch gears now to that shark attack in hawaii. the beautiful blue waters there running red as a surfer was attacked. people on the beach teaming up to save his life. we'd like to remind you that

7:09 am
>> they say he's got his leg bit off. i thought big giant gash on it but then when we brought him to the beach, i mean, you know, it's gone. it's gone. >> reporter: officials say a paddleboarder came to the surfer's rescue helping him out of the water, a nearby kayaker towing the pair to shore where a group of good samaritans jumped into action using a surfboard leash as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding. >> we definitely first off want to commend those people that were quick to action. they did the right thing. >> reporter: medics rush cook to the hospital in critical condition, but his cousin saying he was in good spirits before going into surgery. >> i got there, and i'm all, what's up. i heard you were fighting with a shark. and he started laughing and smiling. he was like, yeah, i got a couple good cracks on him. >> dan mentioned shark attacks are rare. this was the fifth one in hawaii this year. a woman was killed while snorkeling off maui this spring, the first fatal shark attack in years. by the way, cook apparently used his bare hands to fight off the shark. >> wow, wow, impressive. kendis, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> thanks, kendis.
7:10 am
and we want to move now to political intrigue surrounding the search for a new speaker of the house. republicans are scrambling after their top candidate suddenly dropped out of the race. but a familiar name and face has emerged, but so far paul ryan has said he doesn't want the gig but now that prominent republicans are saying he's the only man for the job, could ryan be changing his mind? abc's devin dwyer with answers for us this morning from capitol hill. good morning, devin. >> reporter: hey, good morning, paula. you know, the stakes in this drama could not be higher. in just a few weeks the government is set to max out its credit limit and run out of money. the speaker of the house at the center of it all, and republicans this morning are searching for a new one. >> and the house will be in order. >> reporter: it's one of the most powerful jobs in politics that nobody seems to want. >> do you want the job? >> no. >> does anybody? >> we'll find out. >> reporter: republicans plunged into chaos over the speaker of their house not once but twice in two weeks. first it was john boehner suddenly calling it quits then
7:11 am
his heir apparent, kevin mccarthy, abruptly stepping aside. >> i think i shocked some of you, huh? >> reporter: this morning a search for a speaker suitable to conservatives has become desperate. >> can't go on like this where one small group is allowed to hijack the entire house. >> reporter: but one man has emerged as a potential savior. >> i'm a huge fan of paul ryan. >> i think he would be an amazing speaker. >> i did everything except carry his gym bag this morning trying to get him to do it. >> reporter: ryan is the iron pumping cover boy and former vice presidential nominee. he insists he doesn't want the job, but pressure is building. his former running mate mitt romney wants him to get into the race for speaker. there's even a new twitter account tracking his decision. is paul ryan speaker yet? not quite. as he makes up his mind, he's only talking publicly about his hometown team, the green bay packers. >> packers are at home and they're going to beat the rams and they're going to cover the spread so -- >> where will you be watching the game? >> at home. >> reporter: ryan would be spending much less time at home
7:12 am
in wisconsin if he did get in the race and become speaker. that's a top concern this morning he's talking over at home with his wife and three young children. paula and dan. >> devin, thank you. and there's another political cliffhanger this morning. this one involves the democrats and the race for president. it's "your voice, your vote," and joe biden is really running out of time to decide whether to throw his hat in the ring. the veep's top aides just held a major meeting with democratic party leaders, the latest clue that biden may actually be on the cusp of a historic leap here and abc's david wright is here with the latest. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. not since hamlet has so much drama hung on one man making up his mind so slowly. to run or not to run, that's the question the vice president is still pondering this weekend back home in wilmington, delaware, with his family. meanwhile, his aides are doing everything to keep his options open. the presidential race may be well into act 2 -- >> vice president joseph biden. >> reporter: -- but joe biden still can't decide whether he'll take the stage.
7:13 am
>> hello. >> reporter: for weeks now he's been openly speculating. >> people who aren't willing to risk failing never succeed. >> reporter: will he or won't he run? [ cheers and applause ] the fact that we're still asking the question threatens to overshadow the candidates who have already declared, especially front-runner hillary clinton. >> it absolutely impacts hillary clinton the most. >> reporter: abc news has learned this past week biden's aides met with officials from the democratic national committee. the purpose, to learn about upcoming filing deadlines to get his name on the ballots in different states. the first of those deadlines comes up in less than a month, alabama, november 6th. by that date he'd have to pay $2500 and submit 500 signatures in order to qualify for the democratic primary. helping candidates figure out all the requirements is part of the dnc's job. but is biden a candidate? even though he's not yet decided, the polls show him doing pretty well. >> when you look at the vice
7:14 am
president's ratings, he's the most popular potential candidate on both sides right now, more popular than hillary clinton and more popular than any other republican in this race in the general election. >> reporter: ideally he'd make up his mind by tuesday's democratic debate. if he doesn't, the stage might as well have one extra podium standing empty waiting for him. obviously this is a tough decision for biden especially given the year that he had. people are giving him some slack, but the process has a timetable, and he's got to make up his mind soon. >> deadlines are deadlines. leave it to david wright to class up the joint by bringing up shakespeare, to run or not to run. >> hamlet. >> i love it. >> and to do news -- >> i avoided something is rotten in the state of delaware, though. >> oh. actually you really didn't avoid it because you just said it. >> to do news or not to do news, i think ron has the answer. the answer is we will do news. good morning, everyone. we begin with those deadly school shootings. new details of that inside an arizona university.
7:15 am
freshman steven jones shot dead a frat member thursday. the terrifying moments captured on newly released 911 calls. >> there's a guy outside shooting people. there's people on the ground. this one at texas southern university on friday. authorities there have arrested two people after one person was killed on that campus, this as president obama visited families and victims of the college massacre in oregon. jerry parr, the secret service agent who helped save former president ronald reagan from an assassination attempt has died. parr was just feet away from reagan when john hinckley jr. opened fire on the president outside of the washington hilton hotel back in 1981. parr grabbed the president and shoved him into a waiting limousine and then jumped on top of him. nancy reagan put out a statement overnight saying in part, "jerry parr was one of my true heroes. without jerry looking out for ronnie, i would have certainly lost my best friend." parr was 85 years of age.

7:17 am
>> i know. >> yet again another installment of words of wisdom from uncle ron. >> thank you, ronald. >> you can take it to the bank. >> as long as you don't run into a mad dog along the way to the bank. thank you again, ron. sara, by the way, also filled with words of wisdom at any given moment, she has an extraordinary survival story for us this morning that involves these two cute young boys. >> adorable. >> yeah, it actually all started as the dad was pitching a tent and preparing dinner when two boys wandered off and a night in the woods quickly turned into an entirely different adventure. overnight, a family reunited after a camping trip in kentucky took a terrifying turn. >> what was the best part of your adventure? >> sleeping. >> reporter: cousins, 5-year-old michael and 7-year-old adrian getting lost alone in the woods just before nightfall thursday. and sharing their story of eating sticks and huddling together to survive their 20 hours stranded in the wilderness.
7:18 am
>> a tree scratched you? >> yeah. >> reporter: the two wandering deep into kentucky's red river gorge, a densely wooded area dotted with steep cliffs popular with rock climbers. searchers battling the rough terrain and an incoming storm. >> i knew if it rained and then they were out in the rain and especially if they spent a second night wet and cold, that it just would not be good. >> and i saw the cliff edge. >> oh. did you stay away from the cliff edge? >> no, once we were just standing right on it but we -- >> i don't want to hear that. >> reporter: that fate avoided thanks to a vigilant forestry service agent who brought the two little outdoorsmen back safe and sound. >> i mean, they were in great spirits. they were just happy. >> reporter: and surprisingly, unfazed by their unexpected adventure. >> i knew they'd be fine. it wasn't that cold last night and they were together. you're always panicked but i just had like this feeling that god was with them the whole time. >> now, even though they were 5 and 7, they said
7:19 am
they weren't scared, weren't cold, snuggled up under a tree and they said they ate sticks because they smartly knew not to eat berries or mushrooms which i thought was really smart for a young kid. >> and they're grounded until age 32. >> no, that mother was way too calm. >> that's what kids do. they wander off, usually in a target or something, not in the woods. >> i wouldn't trust my boys alone in the woods for ten minutes. >> i'm surprised they said even though it wasn't cold, they said it was really dark, we couldn't see each other and they weren't scared too. >> amazing. the mother, did you notice the calling? >> did you hear the last clip? did you go to the cliff? and she goes, you didn't go close, did you? as we stood on the top of it -- she goes, i don't want to know that. >> no, no more. no more. >> take a peek. >> okay. we'll save the danger for weather, right? >> well, you know, we had storms coming through the northeast last night and brought some damaging winds to some spots. i have some video out of york, pennsylvania. heavy rain also and some clouds that were ominous. at one point we had a tornado warning to the west of philadelphia. that thankfully expired and no tornado touched down. we'll give you an idea just how
