7:02 am
our team is out in full force for you right now. >> of course, so many of those travelers could face that severe weather hitting so much of the country. a flash flood emergency in the south where more than a dozen college students were trapped in a kentucky cave. we'll take you inside the rescue. we begin though with abc's rob marciano in kansas where two tornados were reported. good morning, rob. >> good morning, george. two through this area and one taking out this massive mature tree and slamming it into this home. this neighborhood is littered with trees and debris. yesterday another frightening day across the central u.s. and a long duration of that for many it went all day and through the night. [ sirens ] overnight, lightning igniting the skies over the plains. these dramatic bolts crackling across oklahoma. in paducah, kentucky, a police car caught this massive lightning strike. so powerful it knocked the dash cam right from its mount.
7:03 am
also in kentucky, a dramatic rescue for 19 people stuck in this cave for over six hours. the group made up mostly of clemson geology students and their guides entered the cave at 10:00 a.m. for a tour. but then the flash floods came rushing in blocking the exits. >> the worst was the entrance because of all the water coming down. >> with no cell service in the cave the group followed the guide's toward a known dry area called the attic. two police officers called in to help but shortly after entering the cave they weren't able to get out. >> i was scared. i mean, when your life is on the line you're kind of -- you're always going to be afraid. >> reporter: finally at 4:30 p.m. rescuers made their way to the group leading them through high water holding a rope getting to the mouth of the cave where they were reunited with loved ones. severe weather also wreaking havoc in texas. thunderstorms and lightning. all that rain leading the flash floods across the state. up to 16 inches north of
7:04 am
houston. in waco cars trying to plow through the high water getting into trouble. the engine of this car catching on fire and backing up traffic for hours. a tornado in brian, texas, also igniting a fire. at least two twisters cutting through waumega, kansas and driver pulling over while getting hammered by hail. blinding rain led this car to flip over. in the last 24 hours over 350 severe weather reports across 15 states and that doesn't even include all that flash flooding. by far the most widespread event this year and, george, i'm sure ginger is about to tell you we're not quite done yet. >> ginger is right here right now. >> we're not done yet. he's right. we've got severe storms in parts of text -- texas and hefty rains coming along with it and why we
7:05 am
have the warnings and watches from austin to houston, wichita included. up to kansas city. that's for the next 24 hours or so, right. so a lot of places will still sigh the heavy rains then the atmosphere stabilizes after those storms move through then the heat of the day will start to become unstable again so the atmosphere churns back up in waco to dallas, bryan, celina, wichita included with the large hail, strong winds and potential for tornado later this afternoon and evening. at the same time we're watching a storm in the atlantic. that's right. we are still not yet in official hurricane season. but we may just see a named storm in the next 24 hours, 80% shot of this coming at you with the holiday weekend impacted from charleston back through parts of the georgia coast and up into north carolina too. i think it's heavy rain, it's wind and certainly rip currents so something to watch for if you're traveling to the southeast. >> absolutely. >> george. >> thank you. in the middle of this severe weather an estimated 38 million traveling this weekend facing not just storms but those long airport security lines. abc's david kerley is at regan national airport with more on all that. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning,
7:06 am
robin. this is the kickoff to the summer travel season and the bottom line if you are flying today expect some long lines when you come to security. we are basically going to see about 2 1/2 million more than that fly today. now, the tsa says it's tried to prepare as well as it can given the limit of number of officers it has so at the top 20 airports you will see more canine units and you'll see more officers working the lines. the airlines say they're pitching in. more of their employees are in the lines moving bins and doing nonsecurity jobs to help the tsa screen. and we're seeing those technological advancements. there's that test program down in atlanta. a new conveyer belt, you walk up, you put your stuff in the bin and push it on to another conveyor belt and move on. if the person hasn't emptied their pockets you get to continue on in front of them basically and one other thing, we talked about the limit on tso officers. the department of homeland security is asking congress to move some money so they can take a thousand part-time employees and make them full time which
7:07 am
makes it easier to retain those employees. >> yeah, hopefully all of that is going to help. also, david, how do you go about, what's the best way to find your specific travel forecast? >> there is a way to do it. it's called my tsa. it will tell you if there are weather delays in houston. chicago is saying 11 to 20 minutes. tsa will make it official in the coming days. tsa hopes to make it official in a couple of days on that app. also you can tweet it asktsa and say how long is the wait. you may get an answer. a way to find out how long you have to wait for your travel on this memorial day. robin. >> all that is going to be extremely helpful. all right, david, have a great weekend. >> let's take a look at the highways. about 29 million of us will hit the road this holiday weekend and take a look at this traffic control center outside new york city.
7:08 am
abc's gio benitez is out on the new jersey turnpike right now. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. i want to show you right now we're hitting a bit of a traffic jam right here but if you're starting your drive today, then this morning is actually a pretty good idea to get on the road because if you wait until this afternoon, you're going to be hitting some major traffic with millions of others. this morning, get ready for what could be the busiest memorial day weekend traffic ever because gas prices are at their lowest in a decade. more than 38 million will travel this holiday weekend aaa says. waze says the best days to drive, saturday and sunday. >> and the worst. >> friday and monday. for friday it's that 3:00 to 5:00 and monday, 1:00 to 4:00. >> reporter: the average price is 2.26, 45 cents lower than this time last year. and back here on the new jersey turnpike, i want to show you this new tool from the app waze. you can tell it when you want to arrive wherever you're going and
7:09 am
it will tell you when to leave. it is called plan drives and you can find it right inside waze. >> all those apps are happening and really helping. now to president obama making history at hiroshima this morning becoming the first sitting american president to travel there since the u.s. dropped an atomic bomb in 1945 near the end of world war ii. abc's jim avila is in japan with the latest. good morning, jim. >> reporter: robin, this morning president obama walked the solemn spot where the united states dropped the first atomic bomb in war. it was a controversial visit that american presidents have been avoiding for some 70 years. as promised he did not apologize for harry truman's decision to end the war with a nuclear explosion that killed 160,000 people. instead, with north korea obviously on his mind and with japanese prime minister abe at his side laying a condolence wreath pleading for world leaders to put an end to not just nuclear weapons but to war itself.
7:10 am
>> we must change our mind-set about war itself. to prevent conflict through diplomacy. >> reporter: a powerful moment in history, an american president calling for the end of the nuclear era that the united states began some 70 years ago. robin. >> that was quite a moment, jim. with the president in japan. >> it certainly was. the race for the white house and donald trump sealed the deal formally securing all the delegates he needs for the gop nomination and taunting hillary clinton by talking about a debate with bernie sanders. abc's tom llamas is on the trail in los angeles. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. reaching that milestone has trump thinking about the future and talking about stat tieus of himself as senator sanders says he wants trump one-on-one. donald trump turning his campaign swing into a victory tour after locking in that magic number of delegates, clinching the gop nomination. >> we hit the 1,237, right. 1,237.
7:11 am
you know, you had our president saying, he will not be the nominee of his party. oh, really? >> reporter: trump so confident he's already mapping out his legacy in washington. >> build a wall, it's going to be a big wall. it's going to be a beautiful wall. someday when i'm gonzo maybe they'll name it after trump. i'd really much rather have a statue in washington, d.c. >> reporter: naming the price for his next matchup, 10 to $15 million for charity to debate senator bernie sanders. >> i think it would get very high ratings. it should be in a big arena somewhere. the problem with debating bernie, he's going to lose. >> reporter: sanders who requested the debate sounding more like don king than a vermont senator. >> and i think we're going to have to rent out the largest stadium you have here in california. >> reporter: telling jimmy kimmel he's going to come out on top. >> i will run against him as the democratic nominee for president of the united states and if i do, we're going to beat him and beat him bad. you could tell him that.
7:12 am
>> i'll tell him. >> reporter: one person not into the epic clash, democratic front-runner hillary clinton. >> well, i understood they said that was a joke and i'm going to look forward to debating donald trump. >> reporter: trump looking forward to the general election. and ready to show some of his cards. >> i want to focus on 15 or so states and i want my energy to be put in the states where it can go either way. >> reporter: but clinton telling voters the fight for the white house is just beginning. >> send a message that when you think about the future, you don't see donald trump's face up there. >> reporter: today trump heads to fresno and san diego where police have added extra officers in case protests grow violent like we've seen throughout the week. george. >> okay, tom. thanks very much. let's talk about this more with matt dowd. matt, thanks for joining us again this morning. who knows if this debate is actually going to happen between donald trump and bernie sanders but certainly does help them both to talk about it. >> i think it's a really smart move on both their part, george. these are two people, especially donald trump who don't play by
7:13 am
traditional rules and as you know, in the military or in business or even sports if you think about the forward pass, every time somebody innovated and didn't play by the traditional rules the opponent cried foul and they either adapt or they get run over. >> but what this does also right now, it highlights the fact that donald trump is wrapped up his nomination but hillary clinton is still in a fight with bernie sanders and it's a real race in california. >> reporter: yeah, donald trump's coalesced the republican party and got that and moving on to independents. i think it's a very smart move and highlights his victories and also undermines hillary clinton as she's not able to turn towards the general election. and i think she's faced -- she could easily lose the california primary, the last primary of the season as she heads into a convention, she's likely the nominee but she goes in very weakened. >> and will have to move very, very fast to corral all those bernie sanders supporters. >> reporter: which i think is going to be very difficult. especially the younger voters that are not enthusiastic about her, george, so her only path to
7:14 am
get those voters is make donald trump worse than herself as the alternative. it's a big, difficult fight she'll have to deal with in the course of this after philadelphia. >> that is why she's talking about him all the time. matt, thank you very much. to amy with today's other top stories starting with a very frightening scene in tokyo. >> an engine fire erupted on a korean air jet forcing more than 300 passengers to evacuate as flames broke out on the boeing 777 just as it was taxiing for takeoff from tokyo to south korea. emergency slides deployed to get everyone off the plane. several treated for bumps and bruises but no reports of major injuries and the cause of that fire right now, not yet known. well, there is a possible major development in the search for the doomed egyptair jetliner. an egyptian official says search crews have picked up a beacon that may be from the plane. a french ship with specialized equipment is rushing to the scene in the mediterranean. 66 people died when that plane crashed last week on its way from paris to cairo. >> there has been an arrest in
7:15 am
the deadly shooting in new york city. video shows this rapper bursting through chasing someone else as bystanders huddle in fear. rapper troy ave is under arrest facing multiple charges. one man was killed, three others injured in that shooting just before rapper t.i. took the stage it happened. finally, we all know not to interfere with police investigation but try telling that to canuck the crow who snatched this knife from an active crime scene in vancouver. well, canuck is so well known for his antics he has his own facebook page, a zooologist explains canuck didn't mean any harm by that. it's just that city birds like shiny thing. >> who doesn't? >> who doesn't like shiny things. >> a perfect transition, thank you very much. i know two other people who like shiny things, those spelling bee trophy champs, not one but two kids winning big beating hundreds of competitors and

we welcome you back to "gma." you're looking live at those airport security lines already forming all across the country. atlanta, chicago, l.a.x. 38 million americans expected to travel this holiday weekend. and our team as you know is out there on the road and we'll have all the latest coming up. also right now, so many getting ready to hit the roads, there's a flash flood emergency in the south. 16 inches of rain overnight in texas. rescues under way right now and a new tropical system taking aim at the coast and this morning president obama making history becoming the first sitting u.s. president to visit hiroshima and laid a wreath there moments ago to honor victims. and we are counting down to our party in the park, flo rida, coming to our house taking a look at the crowd. we have assembled it already to kick off the holiday weekend.
7:31 am
check it out. there you go. there's still room for you, people. come on down. we'll be there just ahead. >> it's flo rida. get it. >> wow, it's contagious. >> we didn't say it even though it was in the script. >> no, no. >> i feel like i will inundate you during "pop news." >> it is a beautiful day nonetheless. first the baylor university bombshell. head football coach sacked and president ken starr demoted. following sexual allegations against its players. abc's ryan smith is here with more. >> reporter: kenneth starr's investigation into bill clinton's affair nearly cost him the presidency, now starr losing his post as baylor president and coach art briles out of a job after the mishandling of sexual assault claims leaving the school's board, quote, shocked and outraged. he was once charged with righting the wrongs in society. the former federal judge and solicitor general best known for
7:32 am
investigating bill clinton's affair with monica lewinsky. but this morning, kenneth starr out as president of baylor university after an investigation revealed the school mishandled and in some cases silenced sexual assault claims on campus. this report from independent investigators claiming the school chose not to report sexual violence and dating violence claims against multiple players. improperly discredited complainants and reinforced an overall perception that football was above the rules. recently two baylor football players convicted of sexual assault, another arrested. the scandal sacking football coach art briles who led the team from the rags to the riches of college football, capturing the big 12 title in two of the last three seasons commanding a reported annual salary of nearly 6 million. texting his players on thursday,
7:33 am
i am no longer the head football coach. but accountability for the scandal also falling to starr. saying in a statement, he's profoundly sorry to the victims who were not treated with the care, concern and support they deserve. claiming he didn't know about allegations of violence until 2015 when he launched his own investigation, stephanie met personally with starr in december to discuss her own sexual assault. >> i wish they would have done more to help. if someone really believed that i was sitting in class next to my rapist, you know, more should have been done about it. >> reporter: starr will be shifted to school chancellor and keep his position as professor at the law school. meanwhile, baylor's chairman saying in a statement they'll work to restore a, quote, tone of accountability within the football program, robin. >> thank you. joining us happen to have espn college gameday host rece davis joins us from bristol. this does not put an end to what's going to be happening there at baylor, does it?
7:34 am
>> no, robin, i don't think so. far from it. this feels a little more like the beginning. now, you might be able to close a chapter in terms of the art briles era but the question remains out there, will more come forward with complaints? will there be civil lawsuits and certainly regardless of how one might feel about the ncaa delving into areas of morality or criminal or civil justice it's really likely that baylor will face ncaa implications as well and those types of things can have a long-lasting impact even put a cloud over the program and university. obviously the victims and their rights and restoring them as best we can of the utmost importance but in terms of the ramifications of the scandal i feel as if it's just starting? >> tell us how it's going to long-term -- the potential to impact this program. >> robin, i think it's potentially devastating becaus it's referenced in the report, before art briles arrived at baylor during the big 12 era
7:35 am
which started in 1996, baylor had been 35 and 101. now in four of the last five years won ten games on the cusp of making the college football playoff. had a heisman trophy winner and built a new stadium. but they don't have a long term history of having anyone come in there and be able to win football games. i think the cloud and the scrutiny that they're going to be under over the next several months will make it a little bit difficult to find a football coach to replace art briles, certainly one of his caliber on the field, i'm speaking of. i think it could have a long-lasting impact and potentially this entire thing could be devastating to them in terms of the football program. >> i know athletic departments all across the country are taking note of this. rece davis, always good to spend a little time with you. thank you very much for your insight. >> likewise, robin, thank you. >> take care. thanks, robin. we move on to video raising questions about a deadly police shooting showing the moments before an unarmed man was killed in a hotel hallway and the widow

privacy and security. the public filings revealing those homes will be replaced with smaller updated versions that are designed to nestle into gardens and celebrate the oak, redwoods and other trees on site. zuckerberg's not the first tech titan to buy up the neighborhood in pursuit of privacy. elon musk paid nearly $7 million in 2013 for a teardown across the street from his bel air mansion. that same year, yahoo!'s marissa mayer with a backyard described by "vogue" magazine of having a lawn large enough to accommodate a skating rink reportedly spent more than $11 million on a property a few doors down from her palo alto pad. but perhaps the most spectacular of them all, this five-acre estate in seattle owned by the wealthiest man in the world, bill gates. the teched out waterfront property boasts six kitchens, a 60-foot swimming pool with its own underwater music system and
7:44 am
a library with secret bookcases. >> an existing home close to gates' own home was removed to accommodate a space for extra activities so this might be one of the things that mark zuckerberg is planning on. >> his four homes will be built concurrently to minimize the duration of construction and building elements will be fabricated remotely to accelerate on-site construction and reduce impact on neighbors but i imagine they'll be peeking over the hedges checking to see what's up with their neighbor. >> sounds like they won't be able to see anything because they'll be very far away. rebecca, thank you. coming up on "gma," who is buzzy cohen? the "jeopardy" champ dividing the internet giving alex trebek a run for his money talking to our cameras next. amy, you love this. big deals for memorial day weekend, the items you should buy and the ones to wait for. >> that's right. why pay retail, robin? >> it's all coming up. >> that's my mantra. mantra.

is making an already difficult getaway day even tougher for millions of americans heading out for the long weekend. airport security lines even busier than usual with wait times expected to increase as the day goes on, but if you are going by car, abc's gio benitez has some tips for picking your best travel times. he's on the new jersey turnpike for us this morning. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. we are on the turnpike right now. it's moving. some lanes are a little backed up, but we've been seeing some traffic jam, in fact, we saw one earlier because of a terrific accident that we have on video. this truck was just entirely up in flames, so we hope everyone is okay there. but those are the dangers that we have on the roads. so if you're traveling today, if you're driving, 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., those are the worst times to be on the road anywhere. saturday and sunday, those are the best days to be on the road and that's from the traffic app waze. monday is when it picks up again and it gets really busy on the roads, especially in the
8:04 am
afternoon. amy. >> great, i'm traveling on friday and monday. all right. good to know, gio, thank you. all right, maybe you're hitting the road this morning to get to a beach. well, there is a new list of the best beaches in the u.s. topping the list, hanauma bay on the hawaiian island of oahu. it is such a popular snorkeling spot that it's closed on tuesdays, they say, so the fish can rest. rounding out the top three beaches, siesta beach in sarasota, florida, and kapalua bay beach on maui. and finally if hugging was an olympic sport, this next guy would get a gold medal. check out krishna kumar hugging his way into the guinness record books. he has just hugged a staggering 79 people in 1 minute if you call that a hug. it's kind of like a body slam with a quick tap. he beat the previous record of 77 to set that new world record. kumar calls it the highest level of human achievement. back to you. >> kind of a modified bro hug. >> a bro hug.

about quality, not quantity. get on in there, amy. thank you, though, but good for him. now to what the cdc is calling an urgent health threat. the first ever case of an american infected with a superbug that's resistant to some of the most powerful antibiotics we have. abc's chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser is here. much more on this, a lot of concern. tell us about this case in particular. >> yeah, so for years the cdc has been tracking these very resistant infections around the globe called cre, and they've been on the rise, they're mainly seen in elderly people, people with medical problems in the hospital, and there's only been one antibiotic called calistien that could treat it and a woman in person in pennsylvania who has a urinary tract infection is resistant to calistin. we're one step away from having untreatable bacterial infections. >> how concerned should we be about this? >> you know, you have to think back to before 1943, because that's only as long as we've had antibiotics, and before that, if you went in the hospital for a
8:06 am
minor surgery or had pneumonia, these infections could be fatal and the big concern is that if this really develops, people going into the hospital who have medical problems, their lives could be at risk because we don't have antibiotics to treat them because the drug companies haven't been making new antibiotics. >> when you were at the cdc, didn't you write a program that was geared toward if something like this should happen? >> yeah, yeah. >> so what should we do? >> you know, when you think about resistance, you know, different types of resistance is from different causes. some is from overuse in animals. some is in the hospital and some from what we do. the first thing is you always want to make sure you take your antibiotics only if prescribed. never use someone else's drugs and tell your doctor if you've had overseas travel because some of these very resistant germs are found in hospitals overseas. and then lastly you want to make sure that anyone who touches you in the hospital washes their hands, that you see it. be brave, say i didn't see you wash your hands, please wash your hands because that's how these really dangerous germs are being spread. >> speak up.
8:07 am

welcome back to "gma." and how about that crowd in central park? everybody moving and everybody getting ready for flo rida. a huge performance coming up in just a little bit but right now we're going to move on to what your kids don't want you to know. this morning the problem that so many families are facing, kids getting too attached to their phones. one doctor even warning it could cross the line over into addiction. t.j. holmes has more on what to do about it. >> some of you fighting these battles yet? >> every day. >> every day. >> with these cell phones. yes, some parents just throw their hands up. some shake their heads and some think that is just normal. let me tell you this, how much is too much is the question you have, but doctors will actually tell you there gets a point it goes beyond normal teenage behavior with these cell phones and your child actually starts displaying characteristics of a drug addict. now, this interview here is going to take about 30 minutes. >> okay. >> are you going to be able to make it 30 minutes without looking at your phone?
8:13 am
>> i'm going to try, yes. >> you sure you're all right? >> i can do it. >> reporter: jason clark loves his smartphone. no surprise there. he is a 15-year-old but he is so attached to it his family worries he might one day need therapy to get it under control. you've been on how much? >> four hours. >> four hours and it's just 3:00 in the afternoon. >> reporter: we asked jason to put an app on his phone to track his phone use. so, what was yesterday? >> yesterday, six hours. >> six hours. >> reporter: his mom, tamika, says there are days it's been 8, even 12 hours. at home, at school, the library. >> the library with books, right? >> that makes me feel bad. >> reporter: between social media, music, texting and gaming, the hours add up, and mom says she thinks his phone use has crossed the line. >> when you're talking about addiction, you're talking about i can't live without it. >> reporter: you think he's dependent on that phone? >> oh, i know he is. >> reporter: cell phone
8:14 am
addiction isn't officially designated as a clinical disorder like drug or alcohol addiction, but dr. edward spector thinks it should be. he treats exclusively people for what he calls compulsive use of technology. >> their brains change in similar ways to real chemical addicts. >> that sounds nuts. >> well, if you talk to the parents of my clients, they come in, and they say my kid is like a junkie and they feel like it's an addiction. >> reporter: but when does it go from being normal acceptable teenage behavior to a problem that needs to be addressed. spector says don't just focus on just the hours. >> when we talk about compulsion, it's not the behavior but whether you have control over it. >> reporter: clark worries it fits the word addiction. it's affecting other parts of his life. as his smartphone use has gone up, grades have gone down and she's noticed changes in his behavior. do you think he could be on the path that at some point it's not enough to just take the phone from him, that you might have to get him some help?
8:15 am
>> when somebody freaks out because you're taking something that they have an emotional attachment to, it is an addiction. >> reporter: jason says there's nothing abnormal about his phone use and doesn't believe it has a major impact on other parts of his life though he does admit he could probably stand to cut back -- later. now, i'm about to end this interview. what's the first thing you're going to do? >> check my phone. >> all right. let's talk about this with t.j. and caroline knorr, parenting editor at common sense media. welcome, caroline. we can't pretend the kids are the only ones addicted right here, but, caroline, let's talk about the kind of signs you should be looking for to figure out if your child is too dependent. >> at common sense media we us say, you know your kid best. but, you know, there are some typical signs of, you know, a bigger problem, depression, slipping grades, hostility, kids who are highly sensitive, a strong preoccupation with their
8:16 am
phone and not interested in the activities that they used to love. >> nothing else. they only care about the phone. meantime, t.j., so many of these apps the kids get into, especially the gaming apps are designed to hook them. >> they suck them in and you feel like you have this obligation, like he -- we were joking around with him there, he couldn't stand to be in that interview almost for 30 minutes without like something -- i'm missing something in life over here. again, you talk about you know your kids. not just the hours, some can do it with three, some with eight. eight hours on the phone, what else are they missing in life and how many opportunities walking by them to have normal everyday interaction. so still it's not just the hours but think how much they are missing by looking down at that phone. >> you bring up a great point. these apps are designed to add a gaming element to texting and being social with your friends. >> they do. you talk about these vamping selfies. >> these kids. >> these are kids staying up late at night taking a picture
8:17 am
of their sleep-deprived faces and posting it for their friends to see. that may not be true addiction but it's very problematic behavior. >> the minute a parent sees that time to put the phone in another room late at night. right? >> i absolutely suggest that they have them charge the phone in the parents' bedroom at night. >> what else should parents do? >> it's really important for parents to set up screen-free times and screen-free zones and that needs to apply to parents as well as kids. really limit multitasking because we think we're good at multitasking, but kids really -- you know, it takes a moment to refocus, so try and get them to focus on one task at a time. no phones in the bedroom at night. no texting and driving for parents. and we always say, you are your kids' digital role model. you really have to show your kids how to have healthy digital habits now that we're all on our phones. >> the doctor was big on that point. when you said how many times do
8:18 am
you say to your child, give me one second setting that example early on. >> okay. parents know best and parents have to show the way. thank you, guys. over to amy. >> all right, thank you very much, george. now to some big savings this holiday weekend. memorial day is the unofficial start to summer and "gma's" becky worley has the secret to scoring major deals in san francisco with a look at the best items to save on and when you should buy them. becky, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, amy. yeah, people want to know if the best deals on summer are now or if they should wait. well, sadly, best deals in august, but shoppers' dilemma. if you need it now, you need it now. let's get to the summer deals out there now, walmart has air conditioners on sale, $76 off of a frigidaire window unit. home depot has up to 25% off on patio furniture. lowe's has a four-burner grill marked down to $169. that's 15% off the lowest price that i could find online, and finally it's bathing suit season, ooh.

lands' end, though, 50% off swimwear, amy. >> that's an incentive to try on some suits. interestingly, there are big savings on n nonsummer-related items. tell us what they are. >> yeah, each sales weekend is associated with deals and categories that have nothing to do with the holidays, so memorial day now well-known as the best time of year to buy a mattress. who knew. another weird category of sales, vacuum cleaners, gear up for summer, let's vacuum, 25% to 35% off at best buy, sears and target. amy, a lot of these sales are live online now, so i've already snagged a few deals, so it's fishing poles and s'mores for this girl. i'm going camping this weekend. in that's awesome and i like cleaning and sleeping so it all works. fantastic. thanks, becky. and you can find all the codes and details for these deals at goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! let's go out to ginger in central park now where the party is on. >> oh, it is on. amy, look at this.
