has been pushed and you can see that dumpster was in the river. there were cars in the river. if you take a look at our drone shot you can see this is just a ghost town. there is nobody here this morning. many of the residents and business owners are hoping to get back in. but for many, it will be days, even weeks, if ever that they're allowed back. this morning, rescue teams desperately searching for at least one man missing after these destructive floodwaters ripped through the small town sunday. >> at this point i just want to find him. >> reporter: 39-year-old national guardsman eddison hermond was at a celebration when the waters came through. he went out to the floodwaters to help a trapped woman. that woman, kate bowman, telling "the washington post" he just stepped over the ledge and he was immediately washed away. it was so fast, he just got washed away real quick. >> pretty sure you think, hey, i can handle this. i'm sure that's what he thought. i guess it just kind of took him.
they said he was calm when he went the in. and it kind of gave me hope. but it's been 24 hours. >> we're also bringing in quite a bit of resources and working to put into place an incident management team who will help coordinate and orchestrate the search. >> reporter: many trekking through the turbulent high waters. the man seen here swept away by the rapid flooding as a house crumbled right behind him. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: officials say over 1100 calls were placed to 911, first responders helping more than 300 people pulling as many as 30 stranded in the high water. >> people trapped. there's people in every building. >> reporter: firefighters battling two fires at least one caused by lightning during the storm. the rushing water sending a wedding party scrambling to safety. the couple saying their vows in a pool of water. >> i married the girl of my dreams. we're just happy everyone is safe. >> reporter: and back out here live you can see from our drone that house we just showed you in
our piece, the foundation completely gone, collapsed. the house now on the ground. this is what they're calling a 1,000-year flood but this has happened twice in this city in just two years, michael. >> all right, thank you so much, eva. just devastating. george. >> sure is. the latest twist in the nuclear summit with north korea. all sides scrambling to save the talks as the top north korean official is heading from beijing to new york for negotiations. and u.s. diplomats meet with north koreans inside the dmz. abc's bob woodruff is tracking the latest. >> reporter: overnight reports that kim young chul, former north korean spy chief and close aid to kim jong-un landed at beijing airport. apparently planning to continue on to the u.s. for talks. he would be the highest ranked north korean official to visit the u.s. since year 2000, 18 years ago. with just 14 days to go before what the white house calls the expected meeting, president trump and japanese prime minister shinzo abe spoke by
phone late yesterday. south korea's president moon jae-in is considering heading to singapore himself to participate in the summit. but the leader who has remained relatively quiet about the summit is china's president xi jinping who many believe is surprised and frustrated by how quickly this american plan is progressing. still, the u.s. ambassador in china told me today that he is okay with it. does xi jinping like this idea of having a summit down in singapore? >> yes. the chinese support the idea of the united states and north korea meeting because they want to see a denuclearization of the korean peninsula. they want safety and security on their border. >> reporter: u.s. and north korean officials in singapore are hammering out logistics and security issues. and over the weekend, an american delegation crossed into north korea to talk about the the details. it's been a whirlwind blowing back and forth, trump last
thursday calling it off, then over the weekend suggesting it could still happen. >> i think there's a lot of goodwill. i think people want to see if we can get the meeting and get something done. >> reporter: now, very interesting that kim young chul the military intelligence chief reportedly heading to the u.s. is accused of international deadly attacks and also for hacking into the sony pictures computers because kim jong-un was deeply insulted by sony's movie "the interview," i doubt, george, very much he's not going to talk about this subject. >> i think you're probably right about that. bob, thanks very much. let's bring in our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl for more on this. jon, no official word on the meeting but the president is striking an optimistic note on twitter this morning. >> reporter: he absolutely is, george. he's making it official that that north korean official is coming to the united states. you now have a frenzy of activity moving towards a june 12th summit. you have that visit. you have the u.s. delegation b mentioned in north korea. there is another u.s. delegation in singapore working out logistics.
the one thing we don't have yet, george, is any official announcement from the white house that in fact the summit is back on. >> we do know there's still disagreements over what the meaning of denuclearization is. on another front the president's twitter on memorial day drew some fire across the political spectrum. >> reporter: absolutely. the president as you see saying happy memorial day, that those who died would be happy and proud of how great the country is doing and then cited some of his record. this really struck a lot of people the wrong way. former bush speech writer, george w. bush speech writer david frum, said many people question this president but it's no small achievement to write the grossest, most inappropriate, most self-flattering memorial day message in the history of the u.s. presidency. >> jon karl, thanks very much. michael? >> all right, thank you, george. now to that volcano emergency overnight. more residents told to evacuate
immediately as lava closes in. this video shows it destroying a neighborhood. and abc's whit johnson is in hawaii with more. good morning to you, whit. >> reporter: guys, good morning. take a look at this incredible view. the lava flow coming from fissure number eight, off in the distance. you can see lava fountains spewing lava up into the air 100 feet and igniting vegetation on the way. and here's the big problem. this flow moving yet over another road. cutting off access. making it more difficult for people to evacuate. >> that's the fissure right there. shooting about 300, 400 feet high. >> reporter: waiting till the last second to get out, a group of men watching and recording. this hawaiian neighborhood transforming into a virtual hellscape. >> there she blows. >> reporter: smoke, lava, and fire engulfing a home as a fast-moving flow destroys everything in its path. >> is that the house or the trampoline? >> that's the house. >> reporter: from inside the ground glowing orange, a wave of lava pushing closer.
>> no, i hate seeing that burn. >> reporter: from the rooftop the lava swallowing trucks. >> it just popped the tire, you guys. >> reporter: and structures. >> that house is burning. >> reporter: before the house is finally overtaken. >> it's marching across that way too. >> reporter: from the sky entire neighborhoods surrounded as lava flows freely through the streets with homes bursting into flames. >> that flow of lava started making its way down the streets. disturbingly, some people just refused to leave. and that gives us terrifying insight into what's going on out there. >> reporter: officials saying more than 80 structures burned including at least 51 homes. and this morning, three first responders are now recovering from injuries attempting to protect what's left of the hardest hit communities. and as we've been standing here you can hear the hissing and popping of the magma as it slowly moves across the street here. also, if you take a look you can see those gases rising from the lava.
that's creating this vog or volcanic smog which is a major concern for air quality as it drifts over the island. guys, back to you. >> thank you, whit. you just see those images and just jaw dropping. you wonder, when is it going to end? >> yeah, no end in sight. all right. thank you. we turn to starbucks shutting down 8,000 of their stores this afternoon for racial bias training after two black men were arrested last month sparking protests across the country. abc's linsey davis is there in philadelphia where those arrests took place and this all started. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this location is actually closing at 11:30 this morning so be sure to get your venti lattes and frappuccinos early. because this afternoon, starbucks is shuttering all of its corporate-owned stores across the country. you'll remember the incident that led to this. the video of the two black men trespassing after one asked to use the bathroom without making a purchase. now starbucks is attempting to use that as a teachable moment
so today at around 2:00 p.m. more than 8,000 starbucks locations across the country will close for unconscious bias training for 175,000 employees. starbucks describes it as a four-hour master class designed to address implicit bias, promote inclusion, and help prevent discrimination in the hope of preventing future incidences. workers will watch a video featuring starbucks executives. watch a documentary. and break into smaller discussion groups to talk about their own experiences. now one change that's come about as a result of what happened, the company now says that anyone can use starbucks spaces including restrooms without making a purchase. some critics are saying this is all just one big pr front. starbucks is saying we don't expect this to be a magic wand or an overnight fix. this is just the start of a long-term commitment and they're just starting the conversation, amy. >> yeah, and is a very quick reaction, indeed. in that training video, i understand there is a very
familiar face. >> reporter: yes, activist and rapper common appears in the training video and basically talks about how we can see each other fully and respectfully. amy. >> thank you so much. just so happens common will be here live later this morning. we're looking forward to that. michael. >> absolutely. going to turn now to that showdown on the court which amy referenced earlier. the warriors beating the rockets in game seven. now they're heading to their fourth straight championship against the cleveland cavaliers. abc's t.j. holmes is here with all the action and, t.j., you already saw my reaction. >> i did and, stra, i promise you i was actually googling hotels in houston in the first half of the game last night because it looked like that's where we were going to cover the finals. by the end of the third quarter i had bookd my place in oakland. golden state was getting blown out last night and then chef curry started cooking. the defending nba champs were on the ropes, down big and needing to win a game seven on the road for a place in the nba finals.
and steph curry came to the rescue. >> curry for three. >> yes, right on target. >> reporter: curry exploded to lead the golden state warriors' comeback and put them in their fourth straight nba finals. >> this atmosphere is crazy. game seven, man, happy to be back in the finals. >> reporter: the warriors were down 15 early and faced an 11-point deficit at half time. but then, the baby-faced assassin -- >> curry fires for three. yes! >> reporter: -- and his all-star teammate kevin durant took over. >> durant shoots and hits! >> reporter: now, for the fourth year in a row, the team that's called the greatest of a generation will face arguably the greatest player of all time. king james returning to his eighth consecutive nba final. james led his cleveland cavaliers to a game seven victory over the boston celtics to clinch the east. >> lebron james is amazing. unbelievable to think about the consistency and longevity.
the greatness that he's shown. >> reporter: james is a four-time league mvp. curry, two but curry says the match-up is about much more than just the two of them. >> no disrespect to the other guys out there. they fought hard, too. >> one of the the greatest teams ever going up against possibly the greatest player ever. the first time in professional sports four teams have gone for a championship against each four years in a row. the same two teams. >> and won eight in a row. >> eight in a row that he's done it. it's unreal. >> wow. got to go to ginger now. >> yes, george, you can see clearly the center of what's left of alberto making its way north through alabama at this point. but there are flood watches from indiana to virginia. all in place for now. but that is just through wednesday really. chicago even gets 2 to 3 inches.

love with two men. given what happened when you were with arie, how did you prevent yourself from going into that situation again? >> being on this side of things i can empathize with him so much more. it's a struggle because you meet so many guys, you make so many great relationships and if you're doing it right you should be open and developing feelings for multiple people but it was very tricky to navigate. i wanted to go about it my way and respect the guys and treat them how i would be want be to treated. that's what i had to keep in the back of my mind the entire time. >> what's it like being in a room full of men who were all trying to impress you and put on their best face? >> it was a lot to handle. i walked in that first night after all of the guys came out of the limos and the hearses and minivans and it hit me all of the guys are fixated on me. i'm like, what did i just get myself into? don't screw up your words and don't trip. it's a good problem to have. it was fun.

difference? >> it's just time. that first night there's so much going on. everyone is trying to put their best foot forward. that first night i had to go off my gut and feel the vibes and energy but moving forward i had to just ask the right questions and have them ask me the right questions so i could get to the bottom of it sooner. >> i hear next episode you really end it with arie, is that right? >> next episode i will say i do have my favorite date of all time and it's called the rage room and i go in with one lucky guy and we just smash everything from the past and so i walked into this warehouse and it's his old race car from last season. it's the proposal playing on a loop on monitors that we can smash. we had sledgehammers, baseball bats and crowbars, everything. everything was fair game. [ applause ] it was so fun. >> i'm kind of glad i didn't get out of the limo and break up with you. i would have been in trouble.

thank you for joining us. do you mind being called a mogul? >> oh of course. you can call me what you want. >> work/life balance doesn't exist, you say. if the balance doesn't exist, what does exist and how have you made things work for you? we know you're a busy mom and obviously a busy mogul. >> yes, of course. i had a realization years ago. i was 40 years unbalanced and then i was running the corcoran group and i had 1,000 agents working for me and i was nursing my first baby and an agent called me and demanded i be at work. i thought this is screwy because i felt guilty about nursing my child. i thought something had to change. this is what i came up with. i divide my life. i divide the time at work strictly at work. my husband wouldn't dare call me at work. it would be over, the marriage. it's the way it is and he knows it. everything i do at work is work related. then when i go home at night, i do everything related to my personal life. i just chunk up my life and i have so much less pressure as a result of not crossing that line. >> how do you do that?
my daughters facetime me while i'm on the set saying, mom, i need an uber. i mean, how did you make that work? how did you get everybody work for you? >> i'll show you a little tough love. you can stop that as of today. a, you don't have to answer it. that will straighten them out. or you set up their own uber account. >> if it's not uber it's, mom, i forgot to ask for this. i'm on national television right you. >> yes but it's not fair to you. the truth of the matter is you're distracted. >> that's true. >> your heart is there always first. you can't do it. you have to change it. one tip i use at night which has changed everything for the past many years is getting rid of the distraction of e-mails and phone calls. i take my phone the minute i walk into my apartment, i plug it in the outside hallway and don't see it again until i walk out the door. it takes discipline and it took me a good month to really break my habit but what a lifesaver that is. >> no, i mean that sounds amazing. [ applause ]
but in reality some people have jobs, mine included, but if you're some sort of 24-hour emergency worker or health care provider, a lot don't have that option and have a 24 -- >> of course. >> how do you then -- it's true. you do get distracted from being a parent as well. how can you work that out for people who have jobs like that? >> i have to speak from experience. remember, i had 22 jobs before i was a boss. it's easier when you're a boss. because you're in charge of people's time but there's still so much distraction. when you're not the boss, you have a lot more control of your time than you think you have. you can chunk up your time. you know the difference between work and home and you can really stay true to it. i don't believe that that is necessarily truele unless of course if you're in the ambulance business or something like that but you can control your time a lot more if you sit down and size it up. >> even if you just say for an hour i'm not going to look at my phone and give myself ten minutes to do something and if you even space it out like that where you're not every second with the phone in your hand. >> you're right about that. i have to tell you when i broke my addiction to my phone on off
hours i felt like it was calling me, barbie, look at me. it's so hard to resist that pull. but you couldn't do it an hour at a chunk but eventually you really can slay that dragon if you realize you're entitled to it. >> i like it because it's -- the balance acts like we're juggling and it's a balancing act but you're saying that this is taking control. >> chopping your time and i have to give you a tip from my brother that i learned. he works for a lot of people pulling at him all the time. when they contact him by e-mail or phone in the morning the e-mail message they get immediately back automatic is i'm in conferences all morning. i'll call you by 12 noon and does the same thing, changes his message in the afternoon, they don't expect to hear film him till 4:00. guess what? everybody waits and he hasn't lost business and he says he's more productive and i totally see that. >> i'll high five that. >> my pleasure. >> you're a boss lady. coming up next, common is here live. stay with us.
good morning. it's 8:27. i'm reggie aqui from "abc7 mornings." san jose police say a 13-year-old boy is responsible for this bad crash. he was driving a honda with its lights off last night, running from police, when he hit another car and then crashed into a traffic pole. this all according to police. three other teenagers were in the honda. two were arrested. a third, also a 13-year-old boy, suffered life-threatening injuries. we're going to have a live report on this story on our 11:00 a.m. news. right now we're going to check in with other traffic and alexis smith. >> yeah, we've get a lot of heavy traffic out there right now, reggie. north bay is normally a lighter commute, but southbound 101 at
sir francis drake, a two-car crash in the two left lanes is gone, but you're jammed solid from novato. westbound 580, richmond side of the richmond-san rafael bridge, we don't have any incidents reported but very heavy approaching the toll plaza. >> thanks, alexis. we'll check ice cream inspired iced coffee is here at dunkin' in the flavors you love, cookie dough, pistachio and butter pecan. and now, enjoy any medium iced coffee for $1.50. america runs on dunkin'.
san jose again, upper 80s inland. at the coast, you'll be comfortable in the 60s. and the sea breeze kicks up late in the day. reggie? >> thank you, lisa welcome back to "gma." we have a great audience with us here on this tuesday morning. thank you guys for joining us. appreciate it. and our next guest is a rapper, actor, poet and activist. his new movie "the tale" already has a 100% rating on rotten tomatoes. that's pretty amazing. please welcome common. [ applause ] >> good to see you, man. >> good to see you. >> i'm big into the mustache.
>> i got to admit this is for a movie. it's like a '70s film i'm doing called "the kitchen." don't think i would be rocking this like every day. my friends have been joking on me calling me a '70s porn star. >> you could pull it off if anybody can, man. you know what, you recently took on a very important role. starbucks has been in the headlines and you're teaming up with them for the new training program that they're doing. tell us about that. >> well, really i just served as a voice of narration for the day that they have today which is about, you know, just starting a conversation and i, you know, what's been happening with black men in america and black people -- starbucks was just a microcosm of how black people
have been dehumanized, and i wanted to be a part of that conversation. it's important that, you know, you have a black man standing up and saying what we need and just being, you know, with howard schultz, i've had a relationship with him because he first approached me right after michael brown was killed -- howard schultz is the ceo or former ceo of starbucks and after michael brown was killed he was really trying to figure out how to get police and the communities together. and one of the things -- one of the initiatives i worked with him on was getting jobs for people in underserved communities and, you know, i know the heart is in the right place. his heart is in the right place but it has to be more than just the conversation which i think the conversation today is a step but for me as a black man we want to see action and want to see you going to the communities and show -- team up with people who are doing things in the community and figure out from these communities how can you really serve them and we got to hold starbucks accountable and we hold our political officials accountable. any businesses we support and we hold ourselves accountable. that's why i'm a part of this conversation.
[ applause ] >> you have an emmy, oscar, three grammys, so just one tony and you got the egot. if you could be in any musical, what would it be? >> one of my favorites musicals of all time is "the wiz." i love "the wiz" because i love michael jackson. [ applause ] maybe i would like to do a musical about marvin gaye or gill scott harris so maybe it would be something like that. i would love to do broadway. >> we would love to see new broadway. >> meantime, you have this incredible film. 100% already on rotten tomatoes. you all want to see a little bit of "the tale"? [ applause ] >> these people are important to me. >> who are these people? like i saw a letter from a woman. who is that? >> that was my writing teacher. she introduced him to me. you know and she was there that summer. that's why i went to see her. i'm trying to figure it out. >> why do you want to find them when you're the victim?
i'm not saying that to -- >> i am not a victim. [ applause ] >> she's dealing with a lot in this movie. this is a different kind of role for you as well. >> yeah, you know, the film is very powerful and it's a story of a woman who as a child at 13 was in a relationship with a 40-year-old man which she considered a relationship but it was child sexual abuse and her coming to grips with that as an adult so me playing her lover and her like fiance is really just as a character, as a human being, as a man i'm there to support her and try to help, you know, as she goes through this healing process. i think it's important, you know, it's a new reel for me but i love it because as a man i got to show a loving man that's
like, okay, this woman is -- my lady is healing herself and i'm not trying to like lead the way, i'm just trying to be there to support her and give her anything i can give her and, you know, sometimes you don't know all you can give her but you just give them love and i really enjoyed playing that character because usually my characters, i'm shooting somebody in a movie. >> the beautiful thing about this, it's all based on a true story. in fact, the movie is directed by jennifer fox who is here in our audience. >> writer/director. >> jennifer, this movie is based on your life. we said this is a very incredible story. why did you decide to share it? >> i was in my 40s, i was a filmmaker already and i just started hearing every second woman had a story of abuse or, frankly, rape and i was shocked, you know, that i was hearing all this and suddenly as common
said, what i'd always called a relationship did a seismic shift in my mind and i realized it was sexual abuse but i wasn't able to tolerate calling it that as a child so the film is really about the stories we tell ourselves to survive and how the mind and memory can be protective to take care of yourself with trauma until you're ready to face it and the film is me trying to face it with these amazing actors, common, laura dern, ellen burstyn, elizabeth debicki, jason ritter. [ applause ] >> jennifer, thank you for joining us this morning. thank you for joining us this morning as well and sharing this powerful story about something very close to you in your life and, common, we're still trying to figure out something you're not good at. >> come on, man. >> you're so good at everything. thanks for joining us. "the tale" is available on hbo now. we'll be right back. "the tale" is available on hbo now. we'll be right back.

they're rich in omega-3 and 6s. when you incorporate it into an oil like this one from coco kind, all of these fatty lipids boost the moisture barrier and absorbs quickly. you can get it on, get out the door and you won't feel like an oil slick. >> love it. there you go. let's go over here. we've got another brave audience member. your name? >> gerry. >> you seem nervous. >> don't be nervous. all good. everybody wins. let's do it. >> this is a sniff test. i want you to see if you can determine is this papaya, mango or cantaloupe? papaya, mango or cantaloupe? >> can i lick it? >> no. >> just give it a guess. >> papaya. >> that's right. >> why papaya? >> it's actually a natural exfoliant for your skin. this little mask is a papaya

and villaraigosa's being bankrolled by a handful of billionaires. it's everything that's wrong with politics. and none of it is helping struggling families. here's my pledge to you. i'll keep our budget balanced. invest in affordable housing. fight for universal healthcare. and stand up to donald trump. as governor, you can trust me to do what's right- because i always have. a big thank you to a big thank you to jesse j. and you all are queens, that's right. thank you everybody for watching.
