7:01 am
team usa racing toward the starting line in rio. the olympics opening ceremony just hours away. concerns about safety and illegal doping already overshadowing the games. is brazil ready for its big moment? we're there live on the ground with the greatest athletes in the world. >> if i just go out there and do my best to make you guys proud, that is the best feeling i could ever ask for. >> as team usa gets ready to go for the gold. and we do say good morning, america. so much excitement for the olympics and the fact that dan is here with us in times square. >> about even on the excitement meter. >> absolutely. you see amy there in brazil for the opening ceremony just hours away. >> amy has her game face on as usual. take a look at the olympic torch this morning right near the iconic christ the redeemer statue in rio and it arrived in the city in style, on a surfboard, which strikes me as a
7:02 am
little bit dangerous when you're carrying fire. it's making its way to the stadium where the nearly four-hour ceremony kicks off and 6,000 performers getting ready for their big moment. >> and we're going to have much more live from rio ahead. but first want to get to those tornadoes down south. a twister with winds up to 80 miles an hour touching down in new orleans. destroying buildings. abc's steve osunsami is on the scene there for us with the latest. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. the national weather service confirms that what happened here was an ef-0 tornado. this is what's left of a home that was completely flattened. you can smell the leaking sewage. firefighters responding to three scenes just like this one at the same time. >> oh my god, oh my god. >> reporter: from office windows panicked new orleans residents could see the tornado moving into town. >> i'm freaking out. >> that's like scary. >> it appears we had a tornado touch down. >> reporter: wind speeds reached nearly 80 miles per hour.
7:03 am
>> the wind was so strong it was picking us up. >> reporter: here's what it looked like on bourbon street a little more like a river. just blocks away someone was livestreaming the damage when he came across strangers coming together help pull a man from a building that fell on top of him. >> take your time. >> reporter: he walked away with only minor injuries. two people were hospitalized. at least three structures are destroyed this morning. a number of homes suffered wind damage. two power lines fell in the streets. >> the swirl of debris a block away from my house coming this way that kind of looked like a bomb go off at first. >> reporter: the city says everyone is accounted for. >> it looks like we have four spots, you know, where it touched down so, you know, we have all of our teams in all of the different locations. to make sure everybody's safe. >> reporter: in florida they've now confirmed it was an ef-1 tornado that touched down for 17 minutes thursday afternoon. nearly 100-mile-an-hour winds flipped cars on the highway. there were severe weather alerts that were firing up as the storm moved through, but no one
7:04 am
was expecting this kind of instant and sudden distraction from an everyday storm, robin. >> okay, steve, thank you. we're going to turn to rob marciano with the latest on where the severe weather is heading next. rob. >> good morning, robin. more storms expected across the southeast. a cluster of storms moving just west of st. louis. this is the same cluster that moved through omaha yesterday and yesterday afternoon. a rogue tornado, these can be deceptive and what they can do. we had damage in iowa and actually potentially the same cell did this as far as a waterspout in lake manawa. just over the missouri river. the four corners region here as we continue to get this tropical moisture feed from the south into the mountains, we get into the colorado rockies. this could produce some mud slides here with locally over 3 inches of rain. also, we're looking for the heat to build across the central u.s. more about that in about ten minutes. dan, back over to you. >> thank you, rob.
7:05 am
to politics now and donald trump is waking up this morning to a raft of new polls bearing some pretty rough news. look at this mcclatchy/marist poll showing hillary clinton now up by 15 points. both clinton and president obama are piling on, so, how is trump reacting? abc's tom llamas is in washington with the latest. tom, good morning to you. >> reporter: dan, good morning. trump loves to talk about his poll numbers but not right now. some of those new polls show trump in a free-fall, something the president pointed out at his news conference where he went after the republican nominee. this morning, donald trump dealing with taunts straight from the white house mocking his latest charge. >> i'm afraid the election is going to be rigged, i have to be honest. >> of course, the elections will not be rigged. what does that mean? the federal government doesn't run the election process. >> reporter: the president piling on as trump is still in the middle of an awkward dance with the gop. this week saying he's not ready to endorse speaker paul ryan in his primary race but trump's
7:06 am
running mate did. ryan expressing his frustration. >> he's had a pretty strange run since the convention. you would think we ought to be focusing on hillary clinton, on all of her deficiencies. >> reporter: another new distraction, trump's repeated assertion that he's seen another video that apparently doesn't exists. with the obama administration taking heat for what critics say is a $400 ransom payment to iran, he says, trump telling crowds about a video showing that u.s. cash delivery. >> and the airplane coming in and the money coming off, i guess, right? that was given to us, has to be by the iranians. >> reporter: but trump's own campaign telling abc news trump is referring to footage he recently saw on fox news. but that video is not of the money transfer, rather of american prisoners who were in iran being released in geneva back in january.
7:07 am
and this morning, a new twist to the story -- just moments ago, trump sending out this tweet, the plane i saw on television was the hostage plane in geneva, switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to iran. now, it's unclear if trump is acknowledging his mistake or trying to say that's what he meant from the start but from the get-go he's been describing this tape as a cash payment which clearly it was not. robin. >> all right, thank you. for more let's bring in abc's chief white house correspondent jon karl. so we saw the poll numbers there, not good here right now for trump. >> it looks like a free-fall. take another look at that mcclatchy poll, it is 48/33, trump at 33%. those are the kind of numbers that we saw in 1972 when george mcgovern lost 49 states. so it looks really bad and it's not just that poll but we've had three polls over the last 48 hours that have shown trump down ten points on fox news, nine points on nbc/"wall street journal." so, it's bad news for trump.
7:08 am
>> but the trump campaign, they maintain they have never been stronger, things are good, and they're raising a large amount of money and their contention is there is a long time between now and november. how does he turn it around? >> there really is. here's one thing that's concerning for the trump campaign, polls are like oxygen to donald trump. i mean, i watched him throughout that entire primary and we would go up in those rallies and have a single piece of paper on the podium. that would be the latest polling numbers and he would tick through. he's never seen a situation where he's seen a sea of bad poll numbers but it is very early and here's the other important point, hillary clinton's numbers are not going up. she's still below 50% in those polls. she's gone up just a tick. he's gone way down. >> let's talk about hillary clinton. she, of course, was out campaigning and there was quite a moment at one of her events when animal right protesters had something to say. let's take a look. >> we'll keep talking and we'll -- and apparently these people are here to protest trump because trump and his kids have killed a lot of animals, so
7:09 am
thank you for making that point. >> she was able to turn it around. >> it was a really interesting moment. those protesters were saying until every animal is free, i mean that was their mantras coming up to the stage. kind of a scary moment and, of course, she was referring to the fact that the trump sons went on a safari in africa five years ago and there was a picture of them with a cheetah they killed. i don't think it was a planned attack. hillary clinton is -- the clintons have been so incredibly protective of chelsea. i thought it was highly unusual to see her go after the trump kids, of course, they're big surrogates for their dad, though. >> thank you, jon. have a good weekend. dan. all right, robin, we're going to move on now to the urgent search for a serial killer on the loose in phoenix. police now linking him to a ninth attack, seven of these attacks have been fatal. thankfully in this most recent one nobody got hurt. abc's clayton sandell is in phoenix this morning with the latest on the investigation. clayton, good morning to you. >> reporter: and good morning, dan, police here are urging
7:10 am
residents to be vigilant, report anything suspicious, they need a break in this case and they need it fast. this morning authorities in phoenix are on the hunt for a serial killer they say has struck again. >> we're concerned because he obviously doesn't even care who is in the car. >> reporter: investigators discovering evidence linking one suspect to a total of nine shootings. the latest attack, july 11th, when police say the gunman shot at a man and a 4-year-old boy in a car, luckily they were not hurt. >> it's too close to home. >> reporter: the series of seemingly random shootings has terrified this community since march, seven people so far shot dead. two others wounded. the youngest victim, 12-year-old maleah ellis while sitting in a car in front of her own home. two women including her mother were also killed. >> my daughter did everything with her kids. they shopped, movies, whatever, they did it together. >> reporter: police believe the suspect may be driving different cars including a black bmw like this but there are few other clues and investigators are frustrated. >> the randomness and
7:11 am
geographical area this is covering is presenting a challenge for us. what's even more frustrating is we know somebody knows who is doing this. >> reporter: to help convince some of those people to come forward investigators have upped their reward to $50,000. robin. >> hopefully that will help, clayton, thank you. now to that deadly knife attack in london, we're learning more about the american woman who was killed and the 19-year-old suspect now in custody. as security steps up across that city. abc's alex marquardt is there in london with the very latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right, the police here saying that this young attacker has mental health issues and the response showing you how on edge this city is, and we're learning more about the american victim. she was wrapping up her summer in london, due to fly home the very next day. just minutes after the stabbing rampage started police responded. this cell phone video showing officers pinning the attacker to the ground after subduing him with a taser.
7:12 am
>> i could hear the policeman screaming, stop, don't move. don't go any further. just stay where you are and he turned around and continued running. >> reporter: a new photo this morning of the attacker, identified by british newspapers, as 19-year-old zakaria buhan who grew up in london and reportedly had been suicidal. police have uncovered no links to terror, blaming mental instability. >> we believe it's a spontaneous attack and that the victims were selected at random. >> reporter: among the six stabbed were two americans, including darlene horton, who succumbed to her wounds soon after the police arrived. it was the 64-year-old's last night in london before she was due to go home to florida after spending the summer here with husband richard wagner, a professor at an fsu summer program. this woman was also wounded in the attack. >> we saw the lady laying down and said the other guy stabbed her and then i realized and looked at my arm and i saw that
7:13 am
she was bleeding and then i realized that he stabbed me. >> reporter: dr. wagner, the husband of the victim is a psychology professor at fsu. the university putting out a statement saying there are no words to express our heartache over this terrible tragedy. we are shocked. this senseless violence has touched our own fsu family, dan. >> there are no words. >> no, alex, thank you. incredibly sad. also just totally random. in texas this morning police are dealing with a massive and high-tech car theft ring. look at this surveillance video, showing just 1 of 100 heists in houston. authorities say hackers got into the vehicles electronically and police now have a pair of suspects in custody and abc's david kerley has the latest. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. it has been a mystery, this rash of car thefts, but have seen this video and they're finding an unlocked car and getting in with their laptop and they're
7:14 am
able to manipulate the software and able to drive away with the car. here's just one example. a man carrying a laptop gets into an unlocked grand cherokee and it looks like he plugged something into the car and soon the headlights come on, the car is backed out and it is gone in less than four minutes. >> we're not sure what it is that they're -- and how they're manipulating the software to be able to get the vehicle to start. >> reporter: police and federal authorities say 100 cars stolen in the houston area transported into mexico. finally police say they caught these two men in their early 20s red-handed using a laptop to hack a jeep fiat chrysler vehicle and found blank keys in their house. police suggest they have been hacking through the port that technicians use to service vehicles. this another laptop hack. jeep's parent company says it's cooperating with the investigation. adding the company takes the security of its customers seriously and incorporates security features in its vehicles. this is the same car company that had to come out with a software patch after a couple of hackers working with "wired" magazine were able to take control of a vehicle.
7:15 am
consumer advocates say the government needs to set some security standards. >> until the government gets serious about this or until the manufacturers backtrack, there's going to be more and more hacking of cars. >> reporter: guys, it's not just houston. they're working with authorities in california, worried about using computers to steal cars. guys. >> high-tech hot wiring. david, thank you. >> no kidding. but the big story this morning really has to be the olympics. >> absolutely, not sure how high tech but high wattage. let's start with that. the opening ceremonies just hours away. amy is in rio with all the pomp and circumstance surrounding tonight's big events and also the concerns swirling around the big games. good morning to you, am yard -- amy. >> reporter: hey, good morning, lara. good morning, everyone, back in new york. it is a beautiful day here in rio and it's expected to be a gorgeous night. day one today is all about the pageantry.
7:16 am
an estimated 70,000 people are expected to attend tonight's opening ceremony, but there are big concerns now about safety and doping this morning. take a look. the 2016 summer olympics are just a few hours away. but, before they kick off here in rio, a controversial ruling from the game's governing body. the international olympic committee telling abc news overnight that, while 271 russian athletes are now cleared to compete, 118 have been banned. the decision coming after many thought the nation's entire team known for its athletic prowess would be absent in rio following an alleged statewide doping scandal. this as brazil, the host country, is still working out kinks preparing for the games to begin plagued by incomplete construction at its venues. a water crisis, zika fears and protesters and now, adding insult to injury, check out these workers using bolt cutters to open the gates to the stadium to tonight's venue after reportedly losing their keys. and speaking of tonight, the olympic torch ends its 95-day
7:17 am
journey worldwide traveling 22,000 miles before making its final leg to maracana stadium to light the cauldron and we can't go without talking about opening ceremonies. leading team usa's 555 athletes, 18-time gold medalist michael phelps picked as the flag bearer in his fifth and possibly final games. source telling abc news rio will ring in the xxxi olympiad with a mix of carnival and brazilian history. the celebration featuring 6,000 volunteer performers and even a an appearance from one of the country's biggest superstars, supermodel gisele bundchen reportedly coming out of retirement to hit the catwalk. working hard to keep up the high standards set by beijing in 2008. and, of course, london's 2012 extravaganza featuring appearances from james bond and the queen herself. team usa has already lost at the alphabet game, guys.
7:18 am
the ioc shot down a request to have american athletes enter in alphabetical as the united states which would be smack dab in the middle of primetime but we'll use our brazilian name, estados unidos. that's number 69 out of 207. coming up, we'll show you how the olympians are getting ready for the big games in the car, showing off another skill set. >> oh, yeah, they've been all the rage on social media, right. what these athletes are posting. it's great to see you there. we'll get back to you in just a little bit. we can see it is beautiful there for amy in rio but down south here -- >> it's a little bit warmer here. 78 degrees down there, that's not too shabby. temperatures will feel like over 100 degrees across the south and the northeast, getting into the 90s across d.c.

7:31 am
we're talking about summer jobs in general, who is getting them and who's not? >> what was your -- >> i was a diving coach and lifeguard. >> tennis coach. >> you were? >> made 400 bucks for the whole summer. >> hit a backhand finally. >> when i was 14 my mom made me work at dunkin' donuts. >> made you? >> made me. i gained like 15 pounds that summer and we had serious munchkin wars in the back room. >> dan wins. >> loved it. >> all of that ahead. but we're going to begin this half-hour with the latest on that jogging murder mystery in new york. police scouring the park where a young woman was killed. her body discovered after she disappeared on a run. investigators are now poring over cell phone data looking for clues and abc's linsey davis has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, police continue scouring the jogging path where police say karina vetrano was sexually assaulted and murdered. >> we plan to chop down every weed in that location until we
7:32 am
satisfy that we got all the evidence. >> reporter: detectives describe what may be a case of stranger rape and they're desperate to find any clues that could lead them to the person that attacked the 30-year-old in broad daylight as she ran a trail just blocks from her home. >> she just never stopped smiling over the course of four years that i knew her. >> reporter: vetrano was found by her father, 15 feet off the trail, face down in the shoulder-high grass strangled to death. >> my concern is that if it's somebody who lives in the area he could do it again. >> reporter: now, officials say dna evidence found at the scene may be their best answer. >> we're hoping to get a dna profile in the next couple of days and hope to get a match. >> reporter: they're also examining digital evidence and believe vetrano's cell phone could provide details. >> they be able to ping down certain times and places moving along the path and work with the telephone companies to try and narrow it down to the tower to see if there were any other cell phones nearby.
7:33 am
>> reporter: a spokesperson for the family has desperately been trying to get the word out, s saying, someone is soliciting money for a memorial fund. they say this is bogus. her funeral is scheduled to take place tomorrow at noon, robin. >> inexcusable to take advantage of that. okay. thank you, linsey. joining us now nancy grace, host of "nancy grace" on hln. always good to get your insight. and perspective on a case like this. what sort of evidence are investigators looking for and are discovering right now? >> well, i think they've got two avenues of evidence, each one equally as strong as the other. first of all as i call it, body forensics. this woman, karina vetrano, in exceptional physical shape. she put up the fight of her lifetime. her teeth were broken. she was covered in bruised. she was found face down, but let me tell you something, if she
7:34 am
put up the fight that i believe she did, there is going to be dna under her fingernails. here's the issue with dna. you can get dna but you've got to have something to match it to. until you have something to match it to, it's no good for you, so i'm thinking there may be dna under her nails as well as a condom and a wrapper was found nearby. now, if this was a random attack, do i believe the perpetrator thought ahead to bring a condom? not necessarily but you can't ignore it. also, you've got her cell phone. was there any dna on it? i doubt it. i think the best course of dna is going to be body forensics. second avenue is cell phone. what the police did from our sources is they went out with special stingray equipment from the nypd, i've seen it brought in all across the country from nypd to help with cell phone collection and they automatically pinged her. they found her phone with their equipment, their specialized equipment from a special nypd
7:35 am
unit, that night around 10:00. and i believe that helped them. now, another thing they can do and i've consulted with telecommunication experts on this is called a data dump. what you heard them just saying is they're going to look at cell towers, translation. they can download all the cell phones being used in that area between 5:00 and 10:00 that night. if the perp had a cell phone they'll find him. >> yeah, they will. and as you said, the police are pretty much at this point saying, it was a random act but they can't rule out anything at this point, right, nancy? >> absolutely not, and i can tell you that they haven't and that's why they went and talked to the ex-boyfriend. they had broken up two days before this. they've said they ruled him out. he had an airtight alibi but there are other guys who may have wanted to date her, that
7:36 am
dated her in the past, seen her at her job and seen her jogging. she ran between three and five mires at every run practically every day. this is the thing she did with her father routinely. typically he would be with her. why was she targeted this day when he was not there. they're going down that route, people that may have known her. >> so many clues and hopefully the investigators can put it all together. always good to see you, nancy. thank you so much. take care. dan. >> horrifying story. this morning, investigators are trying to solve another mystery, the mystery behind the devastating home explosion in connecticut. seven people hurt here and rescuers are desperate hi looking for survivors, pulling people trapped out of the rubble. what caused this? abc's linzie janis is here with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: the blast lifted the entire home off the ground apparently. dozens of firefighters responded to the scene and saved those people. this is what's left of a two-story connecticut home after
7:37 am
it exploded, then collapsed. seven people including four children injured. >> 41 responding, multiple calls for a house explosion. >> reporter: dozens of first responders rushing to the scene digging through the debris at 4:00 in the afternoon to quickly save everyone trapped inside. >> the neighbors are reported they believe occupants were on the second floor. >> reporter: those hurt were taken to several area hospitals. >> i've known some of these people since they were little kids and it's just -- i hope everyone is all right. >> reporter: the home's bathroom now in pieces. the roof on top of a car. >> the house is not on fire. it's smoking. it completely -- it just crumbled. >> this is very, very catastrophic damage. damage that we don't normally see. >> reporter: this morning the cause of the blast not yet known. the power company and fire marshals investigating the possibility of a gas leak. gas leaks were to blame for this explosion caught on camera in new jersey last year. blowing a house to bits in an instant.
7:38 am
and this explosion in maryland, that destroyed six town homes. three of the children injured in this latest house blast remain in the hospital. again, they're still investigating to find out what caused it. >> i hope they do. >> thank you, linzie, appreciate it. let's get over now to lara. thank you so much. coming up on our big board, a big mob bust. what investigators found during a huge arrest. and could it be the end of a clickbait? why those grabby but often misleading headlines, like about dogs and their priceless reactions, may no longer be on your facebook feed. and the first daughter's new summer job jumping behind the counter. we have all the details when our experts join us in two minutes on the big board. stay with us.

>> oh, really. let's get to the first story. a major mob bust, more than 40 members of high-profile crime families arrested in a multistate operation led by the fbi and the nypd and we're joined now by former nypd detective and abc news contributor nick casale. nick, i want to ask you, what can you tell us about this bust? why now? why so big? >> well, it was a great bust. law enforcement put a dent in the declining mob and they took a couple of good names, they took skinny joe from philly and a genovese and, you know, it shows that they're still in business and they're still doing racketeering but everybody is on top of them. it's a good collar. i mean, when you look at the indictment, it reads almost as a mixture between a gangland movie like "casino" or "goodfellas" and a marx brothers movie with the arrest of the tony the cripple and mustache pete.
7:42 am
>> yeah, i'm looking at the list -- harpo, stymie. one guy just decided to go with brad. i don't quite get that one. let me ask you, nick -- >> he's the yuppie of the group. >> he's the yuppie of the group. so, you talked about the declining mob. and for years that's been the conventional wisdom that the mob is declining but what are these arrests say about that alleged decline? >> well, you know, they tell us two things, one is the mob is in decline. the fbi has cut staffing for organized crime investigations from over 100 to less than 40, so has the nypd. but there are four things you have to remember about the mob. one, they have no problem recruiting people. they still have the ability to corrupt american business, politicians and law enforcement. they're profitable but the key is that they rule by fear. so, you know, the wiseguy is not out of the game. >> all right, they rule by fear which is probably why i shouldn't have made fun of brad. nick, thank you very much.
7:43 am
next, the old bait and click facebook announcing its cracking down on misleading clickbait. those sensational headlines seemingly genetically engineered to grab your attention and abc's tech contributor becky worley joins us now. hey, becky. >> good morning. clickbait, dan. you know, it's a huge problem for three reasons and, number two, it will leave you speechless. you're seeing the headlines. when she looked under her couch, she was shocked. misleading, incomplete headlines and take to you sites with questionable information. why is this a problem? pew research saying 62% of americans getting news from facebook so, if a lot of those supposed newslinks are a huge waste of time, well, a lot of mistrust and when it comes to news we all know you have to trust the source. >> what are they doing, becky, to fight it now? what's different? >> well, yeah, so, you've heard about the feed algorithm, what they used to do is, they identify clickbait and they
7:44 am
pushed it lower based on a user's actions. if a lot clicked back to facebook immediately, or they quickly unliked something, it looked suspicious but now facebook telling me they're going to use software analyzing headlines, kind of like spam filters, pushing those articles out of view. so, lara, viewers can click more meaningful links and you won't believe what they do next. >> yeah, right. but, beck, would you say some advice for viewers, try to contain yourself, try control yourself from clicking on them at all? >> you can always see the source, look at the source and just say no. >> all right, becky the techie, that's your name. >> i like it. >> thank you. we'll finish now with the first daughter, she is spending her summer way outside the white house, sasha obama working at a seafood restaurant. here to talk about millennials, summer job, do they have them.
7:45 am
>> can you imagine, hello, i'm natasha, can i take your order? why do you have six dudes with her? those are just my secret service agents. >> she's going by natasha on martha's vineyard right now, but there she's working at nancy's. been around for generations, she has the hat, the uniform but her secret service agents are in tow. now, she's the youngest daughter, 15 years old. it's not a full summer job, only there for a short time, probably will stop we believe when her parents come for vacation this weekend. this is different. her older sister malia had jobs as an intern on a show that starred halle berry and on a show with lena dunham. >> this seems structurally unfair to me? >> you know, that's going to be good experience for her and one of the best, most humbling experiences i ever had was working at a restaurant when i was in college. >> absolutely. >> very good to do. >> it brings you down to earth like cleaning dishes, no question about that, but fewer
7:46 am
and fewer millennials are taking summer jobs like this. do you think natasha will change that trend? >> well, this is getting a lot of attention but in part the jobs aren't there, so a few decades ago, '70s and '80s, 50% of kids had summer jobs. now, it's less than a third. sometimes the jobs aren't there. kids can't pay for college with a summer job anymore. >> right, all right, i want to ask the big board. what was your most memorable summer job, nick? >> intern at king's county supreme court. >> very fancy, nick. >> how about you, becky? >> i waitressed the breakfast shift at a japanese restaurant. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> oh, that's so good. >> doesn't get any weirder. >> i was thinking about mine. i was a diving coach and a lifeguard. after college i went to europe and i was in a diving show and they were like, oh, you'll be the -- [ speaking a foreign language ] >> human torch and they made me wear a fire-retardant suit and
