>> as long as we were outside of that and the wall cloud, there was no real risk. >> reporter: the storms flattened homes, flipped trailers and tangled power lines. five people injured. >> and kayna whitworth with us live tonight. that tornado emergency, kayna, of course, means a large and destructive tornado on the ground right now. what are they telling people in the area? >> reporter: yeah, david, right now, first of all, we've already gotten a lot of reports of extensive damage. and they are telling people in roth and hickory county to take cover. many of them having to run to these underground shelters just like this one, in order to survive the storm. david? >> we know the people who live in those parts of oklahoma know to take this seriously. kayna, thank you. they know all too well. and you're tracking this as well, tonight, rob. >> reporter: yeah, from the damage that i've seen, david, she's right. if they have a storm shelter, that's their best bet tonight. some of the storms that are firing across oklahoma are certainly intense, but the one that we're zeroed in on is southeast of oklahoma city by about an hour. you see it blasting there. we've got half a dozen tornado warnings happening right now.
and the one that's done the most damage, south and east of oklahoma city, at times has been rain-wrapped, so, that means it's difficult to see. and as night comes on us, that's going to make it even more dangerous. we have tornado warnings all the way up to lincoln, nebraska. this is the area of concern tonight. it does include tulsa. gets into little rock into the overnight hours. damaging wind, large hail and obviously some tornadoes. and a bit of a break tomorrow, david, but another threat on wednesday. a very active pattern. very anxious times ahead. >> very difficult night ahead. you'll stale on this through "gma." rob, thank you. next, to the race for the white house tonight, and major developments there. did donald trump flip-flop on taxes? and the battle for the republican party now. trump saying he's willing to go it alone if some gop leaders do not rally to support him. and tonight, house speaker paul ryan saying he'll step aside as the party's convention chief this summer, if trump wants him to. a big meeting between trump and ryan planned for thursday. meanwhile, tonight, hillary clinton pushing forward with the general election. today, trying to reach out to

trump now telling george this. >> bottom line, do you want taxes on the wealthy to go up or down? >> they will go up a little bit. and they may go up, you know. >> but they're going down in your plan. >> no, no. in my plan they're going down, but by the time it's negotiated, they'll go up. >> reporter: today, trump trying to clarify, saying wealthy americans will get a tax cut, but just how much is open to negotiation? >> they're still going to be paying less than they pay now. i'm not talking about increasing from this point. i'm talking about increasing from my tax proposal. >> reporter: with some complaining trump is sounding more like a democrat, "snl's" church lady letting loose. >> you know, it's interesting times in america, right? and now we've landed on the exciting presidential match-up between a godless liberal democrat and hillary clinton. >> reporter: clinton now trying to build a solid lead among those key swing voters, meeting with suburban moms today in virginia. >> oh, my gosh, thank you! >> reporter: she's trying to ignore trump's attacks tying her to her husband's sex scandals. >> and hillary was an enabler
and she treated these women horribly. just remember this. and some of those women were destroyed, not by him, but by the way that hillary clinton treated them after everything went down. >> reporter: it didn't stop there. >> and all of the men, we're petrified to speak to women anymore. we may raise our voice. you know what? the women get it better than we do, folks, all right? they get it better than we do. >> reporter: clinton today refusing to respond. >> and i have been very clear that a lot of his -- a lot of his rhetoric is not only reckless, it's dangerous. >> hillary clinton's response today. tom llamas with us live tonight and tom, donald trump now searching for a running mate, of course, but today, his former rival, senator marco rubio, making it clear, he's not interested? >> reporter: david, recently, trump spoke in glowing terms about senator rubio, but today, rubio said he doesn't even want to be considered. that he still has reservations about trump's campaign and many concerns about his policies. david?

negotiate a surrender with buckel's family at a rest stop. buckel shows up, spotted by that surveillance camera, but flees before the police arrive. the manhunt kicked back into high gear, ending with buckel back in handcuffs. and david, buckel was up for parole in just two weeks. now, he could serve an extra three to five years behind bars. david? >> gio benitez with us tonight. gio, thank you. next, to maryland this evening, a federal security officer ordered held without bond after an alleged shooting spree. eulalio tordil in court today, accused of killing his estranged wife and then two other people, while trying to steal cars. police finally capturing him in this parking lot, and tonight we've learned, he may not have gone very far, because he lost his glasses while struggling with one of his victims, and authorities say he simply could not see. next tonight, to a legal showdown this evening between the federal government now and the state of north carolina over that state's controversial new transgender bathroom law.
it sparked dueling protests. the federal government late today moving forward and suing the state because they say authorities are now violating civil rights there. earlier, the state had already sued the obama administration for what they call a, quote, radical reinterpretation of the law. abc's steve osunsami is in raleigh, north carolina, tonight. >> reporter: tonight, the fight in the streets over public accommodations is moving to the courthouse. in her lawsuit, the country's top prosecutor is now asking a federal court to stop north carolina from enforcing its new law, charging that it removes protections for gay families, and keeps transgender residents out of the public restrooms they need. in her view, this is the new jim crow, sex discrimination in violation of federal civil rights law. >> they created state-sponsored discrimination against transgender individuals. >> reporter: two hours earlier, north carolina's governor stood before cameras, refusing to back down. >> i think it's time for the u.s. congress to bring clarity to our national anti-discrimination provisions.
>> reporter: in his new lawsuit, he argues that transgender americans are, quote, not a protected class under current law. meanwhile, businesses are leaving the state in protest, and the ncaa is threatening to move its games out of state. on the other side, activists are taking their protests to stores -- >> i believe you are violating the law. >> reporter: -- that are accommodating transgender customers. the federal government could still play another card and refuse to give federal dollars to the university of north carolina and state police. david? >> steve, thank you, again tonight. we go next north of the border, and this evening, for the first time, we are now seeing what's been left after that massive wildfire scorched some 600 square miles and it is still burning tonight. you'll remember some 90,000 people evacuating the fire, sparks flying as they left town. and now, the new images tonight from ground zero of the fire. the once thriving city of ft. mcmurray. our neal karlinsky was allowed inside that city tonight. >> reporter: inside ft. mcmurray tonight, pictures of a happy
middle class life turned nightmare. house after house incinerated. abc news was taken behind the fire lines for a first look inside this city ravaged by a firestorm. take a look. there's just nothing left here. and it's not just this one street. it goes back as far as the eye can see. block after block, homes just leveled. tonight, officials say this could be the most expensive north american fire in 45 years, with a price tag as much as $7 billion. 1,600 homes and buildings were lost, but officials stress 80% of the homes are still standing. little consolation for tens of thousands living in shelters or hotels with no idea what the future holds. >> all i thought is, dear lord, if you can get my children safe, then i don't care. >> reporter: tonight, firefighters continue working this blaze around the clock, especially with helicopters dropping bucket loads like that one over there. they expect this fire to keep burning for months. david?

from 13 strains of the bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia. you should not receive prevnar 13® if you have had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine or its ingredients. if you have a weakened immune system, you may have a lower response to the vaccine. common side effects were pain, redness or swelling at the injection site, limited arm movement, fatigue, headache, muscle or joint pain, less appetite, chills, or rash. get this one done. ask your doctor or pharmacist about prevnar 13® today. unless you have allergies. flonase is the first and only nasal spray approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. go ahead, embrace those beautiful moments. flonase changes everything.

poof, they're gone. and all without an injection or pricey procedure. >> well, it also can act as kind of a liquid spanx. >> reporter: what they found is, if you combine this invisible cream with a catalyst, it creates an adherent layer on top of the skin, that is invisible and can mimic the properties of young, healthy skin. scientists say it's composed of commonly used chemicals deemed safe by the food and drug administration, and can also be used to hold medicine in place to treat skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. to date, they say none of the 170 subjects included in the study has reported irritation or allergic reactions. this skin can last for more than a day and can be removed by washing it with a solution. no word just yet on when it will be available, but certainly a market for it. >> yeah, a lot of people watching that video today. linsey, thank you. when we come back here on a monday night, those never before seen images of a president and first lady moments after 9/11.
