7:03 am
we actually just lost a light because the winds are starting to pick up. you can see those firefighters behind me, they're literally taking a last stand. over the past half hour the winds have kicked up blowing the zinged palm trees. the fear is the wind will kick up embers and cast them miles down, taking them from destru destructed areas and starting new fires. these red flag warnings are under way in 43 california counties this morning. that applies to 27 million people. overnight, that rare new video showing the spark which incinerated 12 home, damaged 5 others in l.a.'s pricey brentwood neighborhood. take another look. officials claiming high winds carried a tree branch into a city power line. those sparks igniting the flames fueling that fire. the charred remains of structures spanning nearly 650 acres, over 20,000 residents remain under mandatory evacuation orders. >> i understand how frightening
7:04 am
it is to live in a canyon where these things can happen. >> reporter: and this morning, pacific gas and electric blacking out about 1.5 million people in 30 counties to prevent high winds from topping power lines and sparking new fires. >> worst winds that los angeles has seen in the last two to three years. >> reporter: and several hundred miles away in northern california, fires still going. san francisco firefighters tweeting out this harrowing new video of what they faced trying to quell the kincade fire. infernos on both sides of the highway as they try to douse those flames. these aircraft now flying overhead trying to keep the fire down. the kincade fire, about 15% contained but over 76,000 acres have burned. 86 single-family homes already consumed by that fire. >> we're at the time of year where we haven't seen any moisture for an extended period of time and they are receptive to new fire as well as fire
7:05 am
spread. >> reporter: that wind could also make more work for firefighters. could ground the helicopters that we've seen doing so much of the heavy lifting putting out hot spots and really remote areas. now that crew you're seeing behind me, this is their third major fire in three weeks. firefighters here are exhausted. they've been on the front lines for -- well, since 3:00 a.m. monday morning. the question is not if there will be another fire today, it's where. michael. >> all right, thank you so much, matt. and as we heard, the winds are making these flames very hard to battle. we'll go to ginger for the latest on what's next. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, michael. >> good morning. more than 110,000 acres burning in the kincade fire but as matt said today it is about what happens next. let's talk about that. there is a huge, strong and one of the strongest pressure gradients meaning 77-degree difference between colorado and california. look at the state of california, smothered by alerts. and it's not just because the
7:06 am
santa ana winds will come offshore which they are, but it's because they are squeeze between mountain passes and that can enhance it, because there's such a difference in the air pressure, it wants so badly to get to the coast. it's going to go super fast to get there. let's dive in and show you what happens when you squeeze that air between mountain passes, you can go from 30 to 50-mile-per-hour sustained wind to gusts around 80 miles per hour. on top of it all this heats up and dries out the air. relative humidity in the 1% to 6% range. george. now to washington and the latest on impeachment as the house prepares for a full floor vote tomorrow there is new fallout from the explosive testimony of the white house aide and iraq war veteran on president trump's ukraine phone call. he testified that key words and phrases were omitted from the official transcript of that call and our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce is on capitol hill with the details. good morning.
7:07 am
>> reporter: good morning. there were always gaps in the white house version of the transcript of this call. the white house said that that was just a voice trailing off or a pause in the conversation, but now a key witness listening in on that call and was tasked with editing this transcript reportedly says that details were left out. this morning, new questions about the handling of the call at the center of this impeachment inquiry. lieutenant colonel alexander vindman, the first witness with firsthand knowledge with that call to testify to that call reportedly told investigators the crucial phrases were left out of the white house transcript of the call. according to "the new york times," vindman, a top ukraine expert on the national security council, testified that on the call, the president claimed there were recordings of former vice president joe biden discussing corruption. you can see the ellipses in the version of the transcript released by the white house. "the times" reports that vindman also recalled that ukrainian president zelensky made an explicit mention on the call of the energy company where biden's son hunter served on the board. vindman tried to add those details to the reconstructed white house transcript of the call but according to "the
7:08 am
times" his edits were not included and it's not clear why. >> i want to thank colonel vindman for his courage in coming forward. >> reporter: in 10 1/2 hours of testimony vindman told lawmakers he was disturbed by what he heard on the call and the pressure that president trump was putting on the ukrainian leader to investigate the bidens. vindman told them, i did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a u.s. citizen, adding that it would undermine u.s. national security. behind closed doors, the deposition grew heated. lawmakers shouting at each other. democrats are accusing republicans of asking questions in an effort to determine the whistle-blower's identity. but vindman, a decorated war veteran says he reported his concerns out of a sense of duty and insists he is not the whistle-blower and does not know who that person is. now, vindman's testimony seems to contradict the testimony of gordon sondland, the u.s. ambassador to the eu. he testified that no one ever
7:09 am
raised concerns with him about his approach to ukraine, but, george, vindman says he did just that and told gordon sondland that his comments were inappropriate, so, george, lawmakers are likely to have some additional questions for the ambassador. >> we'll have to see if sondland cleans that up. the house is set for the floor vote on the impeachment process tomorrow. >> reporter: this will help outline what comes next, the next phase of this investigation including the procedures of those public hearings that are expected to begin here in the next few weeks. >> mary bruce, thanks very much. let's talk about it more with dan abrams and start with the testimony from colonel vindman. it's in some ways the most significant yet because he was on that phone call. >> you can't say he was hearing it from somebody else. this is him talking about what he himself heard but i think just as important is how consistent his testimony is with ambassador taylor, how consistent it is with the texts and with the transcript of the call as we know it because you can't look at each of these witnesses in a vacuum. you have to look at how does it
7:10 am
fit in? that's why as mary points out ambassador sondland's testimony becomes so important. he seems to be the one who appears to be conflicting with both vindman and taylor as to what was happening at the time. he's also the one who's assumed to be the closest to president trump and, in fact, had been talking to president trump during this process. >> very significant. this process the house will lay out, basically a two-stage process, investigation by the intelligence committee and then the judiciary committee that would write up articles of impeachment. >> right, you know, people are asking a lot about how does this compare to previous impeachment proceedings? it's a little hard to compare it simply because in both the nixon case and the clinton case, there was a special prosecutor who did most of the investigating. >> behind closed doors. >> behind closed doors so, in the clinton case, ken starr handed congress everything they needed to know. now, you could say about what robert mueller? the difference was, robert mueller wasn't investigating ukraine. he was investigating
7:11 am
specifically the russia piece so no one has really been investigating ukraine. it's behind closed doors and in that sense it's consistent with what had happened before. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. robin. george, now to stunning new details on the raid to take down the leader of isis. a source says a mole inside baghdadi's safe house played a key role. ian pannell is in the region and spoke with an isis prisoner. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, good morning, robin. yet more dramatic detail emerging about the hunt for isis leader abu bakr al baghdadi. this morning, more news about an informant inside baghdadi's inner circle. "the washington post" revealing the source gave crucial details including the location and layout of the isis leader's safe house. an official telling "the post," the mole had turned against the islamic state after one of his relatives had been killed by the group. now, kurdish sources telling abc the mole was present during the
7:12 am
raid and critical to the successful u.s. mission. even providing them with a pair of baghdadi's underwear and a blood sample for dna testing to prove it was him. according to "the post," the mole was exfiltrated two days later with his family and is expected to receive some or all of the $25 million u.s. bounty placed on baghdadi. but thousands of isis prisoners and fighters are still alive. some in overflowing prisons like these. we spoke with one in a maximum security jail in iraq on tuesday. so what difference will it make now baghdadi is dead, do you think? >> no difference. maybe it will become worse. >> worse? >> worse. >> reporter: this man who says he has family in europe and the united states warning this is not the end for isis. >> i think now maybe in europe something is going to happen because many people may be upset about this, but like i said, how many baghdadis go, another one pops up. >> reporter: he claims he was
7:13 am
just a policeman in isis but he shows no remorse for what they did. what would you say to the parents of kayla mueller, of steven sotloff, of james foley, of all the other foreigners who were beheaded, what do you say to them? >> well, what would you say about the people who got killed in the islamic state, the children? what would you say? >> you have no words for them? >> this is not my -- i didn't write their destiny. this is their destiny. >> reporter: well, i have to say that was a chilling interview. it's not just a prisoner issuing those warnings i heard the same thing from kurdish fighters and know that u.s. law enforcement officials on alert for a potential isis revenge attack. michael. >> all right, chilling, indeed. thank you so much. now to that new lawsuit filed against juul. a former executive suing the company accusing it of knowingly shipping out 1 million contaminated pods earlier this year and not telling customers. whit johnson has more.
7:14 am
>> reporter: this morning, the former senior vice president of global finance at juul claiming in a new lawsuit that he raised concerns about a shipment of contaminated pods. in the lawsuit, sid breja alleged that company leaders often responded to concerns about health and safety by quoting former ceo kevin burns who allegedly said half our customers are drunk and vaping like expletive. who the expletive is going to notice the quality of our pods. bra accuses the company of firing him in retaliation for whistle-blowing. mr. breja became aware of very concerning actions within the company that could jeopardize the health of millions of juul users. mr. breja performed his duty to shareholders, the board and the public by reporting these issues internally expecting that juul's senior management would do the right thing. juul has not responded to abc news' request for comment but in
7:15 am
an earlier legal filing, the company claimed at no point during his termination meeting or during his entire ten months of employment did breja complain he had been retaliated against, suggest he had ever identified any safety or quality concerns or claim that his employment had been wrongfully terminated. now, the lawsuit alleges that the 1 million contaminated pods were the popular mint flavor. and despite the protests from this executive the company refused to issue a recall or really any kind of safety and health warning for consumers out there. >> okay, whit, thanks very much. world series time right now. epic game seven set for tonight after the nationals battled back against the astros in a game packed with drama last night and t.j. is down in houston outside the stadium with all the action. hey, t.j. >> reporter: george, this game was all kinds of crazy. first, you had two players taunting each other with bats. you had a manager get so upset he had to be physically restrained before he was ejected and you had a controversial call that had us all thumbing through the rule book.
7:16 am
now we get a game seven. >> the nationals have forced game seven. >> reporter: the washington nationals live to fight one more day forcing a winner take all game seven after defeating the houston astros 7-2 in a contentious and controversial game six. the game got off to a fast and fiery start. astros third baseman alex bregman got the hostilities going early on carrying his bat all the way to first bat after this solo home run setting off the nationals and their fans who felt he was showboating. but four innings later nationals superstar juan soto returned the favor taunting bregman by carrying his bat to first base after he whacked this staggering home run giving the nationals a one-run lead. things got even more heated after a controversial call in the seventh inning. nats shortstop trea turner was
7:17 am
called out when he bumped the astros' first baseman even though he was hit by the throw and appeared to run in a straight line. after that widely condemned interference call and a long delay nationals manager dave martinez, who recently had a heart procedure, had to be restrained and was thrown out of the game by the umpires. but the nats turned their frustration into momentum. immediately responding with a two-run home run. >> back at the wall it is gone! >> reporter: and never looked back. >> we had a great opportunity to play a home game, game seven of the world games. >> reporter: on that controversial call, seriously, pulled out a rule book and 5.09 paragraph a, section 11 states that the runner, even though he's running in a straight line, he has to run a little in foul territory and the player wasn't a little to the right where he should have been so that was the interpretation and mlb umpires did get that call right. the first time in the world series the road team has won the first six games and we get a game seven, best two words in
7:18 am
sports. >> doesn't matter what sport. game seven is always good. >> it's going to be something. >> 2:00 i got an email from charlie gibson. he was watching the game. >> a.m. >> he was not pleased with that -- 2:00 a.m. he wasn't pleased with that call. following a lot of other stories including kevin hart speaking out after that brutal car accident and sharing personal videos of his recovery. only on "gma," we're taking you inside the elite training facility turning puppies into canine commandos like the one that helped take down the leader of isis. wait until you see this. first back to ginger. >> temperature in denver this morning, 6. yeah, 6 degrees, feels like 6 below, look at goodland, kansas. the accident as long interstate 70. the spinouts. this will keep moving east. the flurries are ending this morning in denver. look at the winter weather advisories, kansas city to chicago.

we are back now on "gma." all right, all right, i have a question for our audience here. how many of you make new year's resolutions at the beginning of the year? raise your hand. let's see. let's see. quite a few. quite a few. what if i told you that you should be kicking off your new year's resolutions right now? never thought about that, did you? well, motivational speaker and "the new york times" best-selling author rachel hollis is here and says the secret to having a great year is start making changes 90 years before the year is over. give it up forrism hollis here. i love this idea. [ applause ] >> yeah, so -- >> i never thought about this. >> for me i would hit halloween and then i would start eating
8:40 am
more food and drinking more wine and then thanksgiving and christmas and all of a sudden i've crashed into the end of the year. so i started this practice called last 90 days which is about finishing strong. >> it's not how you start, it's how you finish. >> amen. every week has a theme. you already started with habit and health. >> we did habits. we did health. >> this week's topic, fear. >> fear because it's halloween and i like the cute theme, you guys. but this is not the typical kind of fear. this isn't a fear of spiders or heights. these are the fears that hold you back from becoming the person you say you want to be. one of the thing i hear most often a fear of failure. anyone have a fear of failure. here's what i want to challenge you on. you don't have a fear of failure, you have an ego problem. >> what do you mean by that. >> i mean you're not afraid of feeling. you're afraid of them watching you fail. >> oh. >> let's go to church. let's do it. >> ooh.
8:41 am
>> it's like you're afraid if you sign up for the 10k the girls you went to eighth grade with on facebook will see you didn't finish. you're afraid if you try the diet that you'll fall off and if you just stopped wrapping yourself in other people's opinions and live for you and do the best you can with what you have today, that's how you make traction. >> yes! [ applause ] all right. you have something -- i really like this. five to thrive. what are the main components. >> these are the five things i thought fundamentally changed my life as i got healthy emotionally and physically and the first thing is water. it is so -- >> so crazy. >> you hear about it all the time. it is free, it comes out of a faucet and it will change your health, it will make you feel -- it'll change your skin. so doctors recommend half your body weight in ones of water every day. so this would be half my body weight in ones of water every single day. >> you're a bitty thing.
8:42 am
>> i drink double this. so i actually drink my full body weight in ounces of water every day and everyone else asks the question, don't you have to pee all the time? yes, that is the point. i pushed three babies out of this body so sometimes i pee my pants. i'm hydrated and skin looks great. no, it matters. when you're trying to make change most will tell you to cut something out. this is about adding something to your life which is easy to do. >> gratitude. gratitude. that's number three. >> so a gratitude practice. oprah taught us this a million years ago and does make such a difference. here's the key. you're yacht writing down big stuff. you're not saying i'm grateful for my health or family, little tiny baby thing, great cup of coffee. someone let you in in traffic, simple because the idea sur's spending your entire day looking for blessings and if you look for it, you will find it. >> we asked our audience members
8:43 am
right here when they came in, we said what are you grateful for? let's see your gratitude. i have a cozy couch night planned. i love that. i found a gym, good, good, good. perfect cup of tea. see, what you talked about. last night's home cooked meal and yours? i just finished a really good book. excellent. >> say it was even if it wasn't. [ applause ] >> little things like that. >> little tiny things. it is about setting yourself up to see abundance and to see possibility in front of you instead of scarcity. >> we need to get moving. get our bodies moving. >> here's the thing. 30 minutes every day. seven days a week, 30 minutes every day you move your body. you do what you can with what you have where you are. if that's jumping on the trampoline, going on a walk with your dog, maybe you're hard core and like the rock and put chains around your neck and do push-ups. i don't know. you got the gym? the idea is you move and get your heart rate up. you don't move because you're trying to look a certain way.
8:44 am
you move because you're trying to feel a certain way. >> you want to foal a certain way. now, this one, she says we need to get up an hour earlier. >> yes, okay. i was just talking to your staff and she was one of the gals, keisha, was telling me she gets up at 3:00 a.m. i said this does not apply to you. if you work in an er, work at "gma" or a new mom, this one does not apply to you but so many people tell me they really want to write the book. they want to get in shape, they really want to do the thing but don't have time. nobody has time. you have time. you're just using it doing other things. like everyone, "game of thrones," right, you watched all the episodes. don't tell me you don't have time because you're watching her with her dragon eggs. doelths tell me you don't have time so this is about finding the time. >> last one, health. >> health. yes, give up one category of food for 30 days, you know you should not be eating. >> like fried food. dairy, just one category of food just try it for 30 days.
8:45 am
>> i know what she's giving up. >> i did sober october and i have wanted to drink every day this month but i have not had one. >> so i'm very close. i am so close. >> rachel, it's been awesome. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> you are such a good force. >> thank you. >> force of nature and really helping a lot of people and ourselves included. >> thank you so much. >> everyone is going home with a journal right here.

8:46 am
