hermine strengthens and it could become the first hurricane to make landfall in florida in more than a decade. the state already facing flooding and ginger here tracking all the latest for us. what a radar picture there, ginger. >> exactly. the satellite tropical storm hermine escalated quickly. just talking about it as a tropical depression but now maximum sustained winds of 60 miles plus an hour strengthening and will speed up toward the north and ea hurricane watch north of tampa. the main threat, of course, heavy rain, five to ten inches. some places could get 15 inches. the timing tonight overnight tonight into early friday. then it sticks with us. through south carolina up to the east coast, the impacts could be through our holiday weekend. the storm surge, the rain and that's why we have our rob marciano in tampa this morning. >> good morning, ginger, 200 miles that way is tropical storm hermine and in the gulf of
will make land tonight. how strong will it be? in the past 24 hours western florida especially here in tampa bay have been getting hammered with the outer bands. tropical storm hermine accelerating towards the florida coast. the outer bands already flooding the sunshine state making some roadways impassable. >> about 4 1/2 inches of water inside the house. >> reporter: over 9 inches falling in families trying to stop the water from overtaking these apartments in largo. >> it came through the ceiling. >> reporter: at least seven from one family narrowly escaping after this tree fell on their home. >> there's a tree like in every room of the house. >> reporter: it's all hands on deck at the sandbagging depot. >> the only solution, got to stop the water. >> what else can i do? coastal residents have been evacuated and schools and colleges closed today and tomorrow.
more rain and wind coming and storm surge which western florida certainly susceptible to it here in tampa bay this will be rising, as well. nearly 4,000 days since a hurricane has made landfall in this state. they are certainly hoping that streak holds. another area that has had a hurricane-free streak is hawaii but got slammed with tropical storm madeline and neal karlinsky is there right now. neal. >> reporter: rob, good morning. that's right. the surf here is still rough but feel like they've dodged you can see the waves come in, madeline seems to be passing through as a rough tropical storm and not the hurricane they feared but the last 12 hours the rains has been torrential coming down sideways. as a result many roads have been flooded. there have been occasional power outages and schools have been shut down and the port closed. but they do feel like they have weathered the worst of it and get a true sense of things over the next several hours when the sun cops up, ginger.
course, lester on the way so i wanted to showcase the timing here. once the big island is now on tropical storm warning that is for lester which will come this through the weekend and other islands have to brace for some impact. if not just that high surf and rip currents. a lot are there through the holiday weekend. the race for the white house and donald trump's immigration two-step fiery speech in arizona last night hours after his more statesman like tri mexican president gaining ground on hillary clinton in some national polls and jon karl has the latest in mexico city. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning. if you were expecting donald trump to soften his position on immigration, you were dead wrong. after sounding diplomatic in mexico he went on to present as hard a line on the issue as he ever has. >> you can call it whatever the hell you want, they're gone. >> reporter: no more waffling, donald trump is once again saying everyone who came into
forced out. >> anyone who has entered the united states illegally is subject to deportation. there will be no amnesty. >> reporter: once again he talked about creating a deportation force. he even joked about deporting his opponent. >> i am going to create a new special deportation task force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most da immigrants in america who have evaded justice, just like hillary clinton has evaded justice, okay. >> reporter: trump made it clear where he stands on one of the central promises of his campaign. >> mexico will pay for the wall. hear me. >> reporter: it was a far cry from what we saw from trump earlier in the day when he made a surprise trip to mexico city
nieto. >> it's been a tremendous honor and i call you a friend, thank you. >> what about that sticky issue of paying for the wall. and the wall, is it a n nonstarter. >> we did discuss the wall. we didn't discuss payment of the wall. that will be for a later date. this was a very preliminary meeting. >> reporter: here in mexico city trump was measured and downright diplomatic. he even praised mexican immigrants. >> spectacular, spectacular >> reporter: but just five hours later, a different donald trump. >> zero tolerance for criminal aliens, zero, zero. >> reporter: after their meeting and after trump left mexico, mexico's president came out and said that he told donald trump directly that mexico will not pay for the wall. but, george, i asked mexico's president about that at their joint press conference. he said nothing and he also
that the issue did not come up in their meeting. >> he is facing a backlash over that. meanwhile, donald trump back on twitter again overnight and this morning talking about mexico. also talking about hillary clinton and hitting her a bit for her not going to mexico. >> reporter: yeah, that's right. he's trying to tie this into his attacks on her health saying she didn't go to louisiana and now she didn't go to mexico. she doesn't have the drive or stamina to make america great again. the clinton campaign is brushing this off sayin away with a year's worth of insults by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours. >> jon karl, thanks very much. more now on hillary clinton and her campaign calling donald trump's speech in arizona his darkest yet. as clinton bashes trump for his trip to mexico saying it takes more than a photo-op to build relationship, her running mate tim kaine is stange by but first abc's cecilia vega is on the campaign trail in columbus, ohio, with all the latest.
hillary clinton is not holding back overnight tweeting donald trump just failed his first foreign test. diplomacy isn't as easy as it looks. hillary clinton's response to donald trump's big trip to mexico -- >> it's more than a photo-op. it takes consistency and reliability. >> reporter: clinton unleashing on him in ohio. >> it certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours again. that is not how it works. >> reporter: and going after trump with this video on twitter. >> i'll use the word anchor baby. this is a country where we speak english. >> reporter: her supporters pouncing too. >> hispanic about how much resentment and fear and hostility he's created in this country over the past year. >> reporter: her campaign chairman saying trump didn't just choke, he got beat in the room and lied about it. writing, he doesn't have the courage to advocate for his
in front of a friendly crowd. clinton back out on the campaign trail raising $12 million in the hamptons at parties filled with superstars like bon jovi and paul mccartney. and now she's about to get an assist from some political powerhouses. president obama will be out campaigning for her at least a dozen times before election day in battleground states president joe biden will be out there twice a week starting today in ohio. >> thanks. let's hear from her partner, senator tim kaine, senator kaine, thanks for joining us again. >> you bet. >> let's start out with donald trump's day. we heard those comments from john podesta, the campaign chair for hillary clinton but didn't donald trump gain some stature by appearing side by side with the mexican president? >> you know, george, i don't think so. i think it was kind of a
we'll get to his speech later but he's been talking for a year about we'll build a wall and mexico will pay for it and sits down and goes eyeball to eyeball with the president of mexico and what he forgets suddenly to bring it up or he's too afraid to bring it up or he chokes in the meeting, it's just kind of an indication that the guy talks out of both sides of his mouth and when given an opportunity to address his -- the central rationale of his entire campaign he doesn't do who is going to be conducting bilateral discussions with the leaders of any nation. >> you say he's talking out of both sides of his mouth. yesterday the republican party put out a video talking about hillary clinton's flip-flops on immigration. let's take a look. >> hillary clinton is pandering for political gain. hypocrisy at its worst. hillary clinton, you just can't trust her. >> and over the years she has moved towards more liberal
deportation, on benefits for undocumented immigrants. >> you know, george, that's not the way i look at it. there was an immigration reform effort done when hillary was a senator in 2006 wn george bush was president. e s atrong supporter of comprehensive immigration reform in 2006. you remember that came up in the primaries as a key point of difference between her and bernie sanders and as i've campaigned all across the country, especially in the latino community they understand that hillary do comprehensive immigration reform for many years. this is not a new thing for her. there is a consistency to her position. and that's why she said, look, in the first 100 days we need to 30 years after the last reform, you know, build a comprehensive package that includes basically support for dreamers and include supporters for employers and a path for hard working people to earn the ability to stray here
also border security. those are the kill pillars of the plan keeping families together, very different from the division and deportation nation strategy of donald trump. >> trump appears to be closing the gap in some of these national polls tightening. in our new poll shows secretary clinton is as unpopular as donald trump. you see her at 59% unfavorable. he's at 60% unfavorable. how do you explain it and how do you fix it? >> well, look, this is going to be a tough race and i didn't have hillary clinton doesn't either. we have felt from the beginning that this would be tough. we going into the convention it was pretty much a dead heat and like what we've seen both -- since both conventions but it's not a big lead and means weaver to make our case every day. hillary while donald was doing his high-profile talking messages on the border she was
the world to that important veterans organization and we're going to have to make our case about the economy that works for everybody and we're stronger as a nation if we build alliances rather than tear up appliances and build walls. >> finally on a different subject, colin kaepernick who has been having that protest refusing to stand for the national anthem expected to do it again tonight at a game that's 1230esed to be honoring military veterans. you're the father of a marine. what is your reaction to kaepernick? >> you know, i -- you got to respect people's ability to act according to their conscience. i'd do it differently. i think if you really thought about issues, and about this country, you'd do it differently and when i heard him explain his rationale. didn't make that much sense to me but you have to respect it so i wouldn't presume to tell him what to do. >> senator kaine, thanks for joining us this morning. >> all right, thanks, george. now to a major breakthrough
a new drug that appears to clear the brain of toxic plaque buildup could slow the progno progression and give much needed hope to patients. dr. jen ashton joins us. explain how this does what it's said to do. >> this is a type of immune therapy that goes on a seek and destroy mission to amyloid plaques and tangles that interfere with brain function. let me show you what i mean. take a look at this scan. if you loo p.e.t. scans of patients with alzheimer's. the left column is baseline, the right column is one year late ever, the red plaques represent the amyloid. increasing doses of this medication, you see the red disappears or dramatically goes down. here are the caveats with the study. it's small. we need much bigger numbers. it was funded by the drugmaker which is pretty common practice
neurology, not every expert is convinced that these amyloid plaques are the main culprit in alzheimer's but cautious optimism. >> yeah, and certainly those images studying how soon could it be available. >> a couple years and come from a hefty price tag and could cost patients thousands of dollars a year. >> thanks. we move on to a new lead in the jogging murder mystery in new york. the nypd released a sketch of this man. witness and could help them find the killer of karina vetrano. we have the latest. >> reporter: police releasing this sketch of a man they believe may help them find the killer of 30-year-old new york jogger karina vetrano. karina went for a run on this familiar path in howard beach on august 2 234d but never came home. her father eventually finding her body. >> we need to find this predator. >> reporter: police now releasing this sketch of a man
worker the day karina died. investigators don't think he's the killer. despite a $300,000 reward, multiple dead ends so far no arrests. officials hoping the possible witness and dna evidence found at the scene can give them some answers. >> we also have touched dna from her neck and as you know she was strangled and have it from her fingernails probably the strongest we have from the same person. >> it is innocent young woman. >> this morning karina's family left with pictures and memories has a message for the person who took their loving daughter away. >> the world is against hip. i'm coming for him. >> reporter: police say the man they're looking to talk to should have stood out to anyone who saw him in this area that day. he was wearing a dark wool cap on what would have been a warm august day. amy. >> we hope they get answers soon.
samsung delaying shipments amid reports of exploding battery and sending their stock plummeting. rebecca jarvis has the latest. >> good morning, amy. multiple consumers have complained of explosions of their galaxy note 7 devices. some are sharing these pictures of their burnt out phones online and samsung said shipments are being delayed due to additional tests and no word on what caused the problems, but could be an issue with using old usb cords to charge the device the news has wiped out about $7 billion of samsung's stock value and comes at a time when we're about to hear about the new iphone from apple. so bad timing for them. >> big hit. okay, thanks very much. back to ginger. >> so important to note with hermine, tampa, florida, all this area, not the only ones included. the watches go all the way to north carolina. you could get more than a half
a quick check on hermine's 50 mile-per-hour winds, and we're still not done by any means. the tornadic force winds we've been talking about here. the big storm with individual showers and storms getting going here. we'll show the spin so far this morning. we'll continue to see the storm intensifying and heading up towards the big bend as we head

welcome back to "gma." you are looking at tropical storm hermine growing in the gulf. a state of emergency declared as florida now braces for what could be its first hurricane to make landfall in more than a decade. that storm will then track up the east coast bringing a washout for millions on this >> oh, boy. also right now donald trump making headlines again with that fiery speech on immigration overnight doubling down on his promise to build a wall and make mexico pay for it just hours after meeting with mexico's president where he struck a more diplomatic tone. gabby douglas giving a health update. she is now out of the hospital after that scare saying she was suffering a complication from a mouth injury. and she's doing much better right now in we are glad to hear it. this morning as millions get ready for travel for the holiday, american airlines is
it is raising some eyebrows. basically it's saying that travelers may be to blame for problems when you're flying all those travel headaches not the airlines. we'll have more on that. we'll see how it works out. we begin with anthony weiner and more trouble for him. child services now investigating him. it included a photo showing his young son in the background and mara schiavocampo has the latest. >> reporter: good morning. this, of course, not the first time weiner h texting inappropriate for photos but may be the most serious because it involves his child. now, just days after his wife announced their separation an official investigation into his parenting. this morning abc news confirmed new york city's administration for children's services is investigating anthony weiner and his care for his 4-year-old son jared after this photo became public. the lewd image sent to one of weiner's alleged sexting
former congressman's son. weiner allegedly even referring to the boy in a text message accompanying the picture writing, someone just climbed into my bed. in another series of texts weiner allegedly describing his son as a, quote, chick magnet. this is the third time weiner's sexting has gone public. in 2011 the brash congressman was forced to resign after accide accidentally posting a lewd photo to his twitter account. >> i'm deeply sorry. >> reporte in 2013 during a new york city mayoral bid. the scandal unfolding in front of a documentary crew filming his comeback campaign. >> act like a normal campaign candidate's wife. >> i'm going to leave, leave a few minutes after i leave before you leave. >> don't worry. >> someone might think you're married to me. >> don't relationshipry. >> reporter: now weiner's wife huma abedin has announced her separation from her husband. now, a source close to weiner
their experience weiner is an excellent father. as for that investigation, acs does not comment on ongoing investigations in order to protect the privacy of the children involved which, of course, is paramount. >> sure is. mara, thanks very much. let's talk to sunny hostin here with us right now. i think we see that picture of the little boy. i think it's disgusting. doesn't meet the standard of neglect. >> i don't think it does yet but certainly shows such a stunning lack of judgment that if cps did something else happened that was neglectful we would be pointing the fwing at them. i think they're going to be investigating the home. they're going to be investigating his relationship with the child and looking for evidence of child abuse, child porn, maltreatment, neglect and i think that is the right thing to do in this case because aren't we all shocked that he would have that kind of judgment to include his child in a sexting picture?
behavior lost his congressional seat in 2011, lost his mayoral bid and has now lost his marriage from the same behavior. there's a real problem here. >> could he lose his son over this? >> i think it's very, very possible. we don't know what the result of the investigation can be or will be, but the bottom line is, any judge looking at a custody decision is going to consider this kind of behavior. rightfully so. what is most important in these case, what is most paramount as interest of the child. is it in the best interest of a child to be in a sexting photo with their father? absolutely not. that's not even a close call. >> criminal charges? >> i don't think so. i don't think -- i think that's a stretch but we don't know what the result of the investigation would be. >> we'll be watching. thanks very much. now to those two globe-trotting women accused of smuggling more than $20 million worth of cocaine aboard a luxury cruise ship posting photos of
gio benitez is here with all the details. good morning. >> reporter: this was a massive international law enforcement operation. even the u.s. department of homeland security was tracking this ship. all to catch these women on board. from tahiti to bermuda to peru, the globe-trotting bikini glad beauties seemed to be on the vacation of a lifetime at least according to the photos at the posted on instagram with breathtaking backdrop, a tattoo in french polynesia and a quick jungle selfie but hidden off instagram in the luggage aboard their cruise ship 209 pounds of cocaine worth a staggering $22 million. and now 22-year-old melina roberge is 28-year-old isabelle lagace are behind bars in an australian jail charged with importing a commercial quantity of cocaine. >> this is the biggest seizure
stream. >> reporter: the canadian pair boarded the extravagant cruise "the sea princess" two months ago starting in the uk visiting 11 countries many in south america including colombia and ecuador until its final destination in sydney where police arrested the two and a 63-year-old man. >> the seizure of these drugs has disrupted the supply of cocaine to the streets of sydney and beyond. >> reporter: their par lagace's father saying she never mentioned a man would be joining them. but australian police suggesting they were not as shocked. somehow figuring out that a massive amount of cocaine was about to run aground. and police haven't revealed how they knew the drugs were on board or when they were boarded. the cruise liner telling us it is cooperating with authorities and launched an internal investigation, of course, the two women will remain in jail until they face an australian
in prison. >> wow. >> what a wild story. >> incredible. >> gio, thank you. coming up on our big board that series of bizarre clown sightings. then google is getting into the carpool business. how could it change your morning commute? plus, the end of valedictorians. one school district considering getting rid of the title and our insiders join us in two minutes to talk about it all. and the alzheimer's association is going to make it happen by funding scientific breakthroughs, advancing public policy, and providing local support to those living with the disease and their caregivers. but we won't get there without you.
welcome back. time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by for more. t.j. holmes at the table. we'll talk to him in a bit. but first let's begin with the story right out of the stephen king novel, another in a series of alleged clown sightings. two dressed in costumes at an apartment's complex playground chased away by a concerned resident. the third reported incident in
former fbi agent brad garrett is joining us. and, brad, full disclosure. i am completely and totally creeped out by clowns, always have been and the reports that they're standing under street lamps and waving and trying to lure people away with money. have you seen anything like this before? >> i have seen situations where people try to lure kids at playgrounds, sex offenders attracted to kid, for example, however, keep in mind i have a 6-year-old. i watch cartoons with him. there are clowns in a very positive light so there might be an angle for them as far as luring kids. >> it wouldn't have worked with me, i'm just saying. >> there have been sightings like this in other parts and sometimes the residents want to take matters into their own hands but how does the fbi get an ham on this and how seriously do they take it? >> very serious. keep in mind that you're going to track these guys probably through other clowns in the
group of people. also who sells makeup, wigs and the outfits for clowns? it's got to be small so my guess is, those are two viable leads. >> two viable leads and the clown community feels targeted. okay, brad garrett, thanks very much. >> sorry to all the good clowns out there. we move on to a move from google that could transform rides to work. a report in "the wall street journal" says it will introduce car pool service on their waze app and becky worley has heading in the same direction, they pay a much lower fare. >> what if kinding a car pool was as easy as getting an uber. that's what this is trying to do. first commuter with a car, they punch their route into waze that helps with mapping and traffic and then car poolers are alerted and can ask to join them. what's cool, waze even hams sharing the cost of gas, they let riders pay about 50 cents a mile.
business model than uber. still looking at a google versus uber competition here. >> amy, i think everybody wants a piece of uber's business and this might snag a few riders but i talked to sources really deep inside waze and say it's not what it's about. for one the rate is too cheap to incentivizze drivers. $10 for a 20-mile ride. nobody is making a living off it and waze says this is about making commutes some altruism. think we despise traffic, anything at all to make it better, i am so in. >> i know this is just starting. hard to think it's going to work in realtype. the drivers out there on the road detours to pick somebody up. >> safety issues. are they vetted? i think there are a lot of questions still. >> this is a beta program. both are excellent questions that will no doubt be answered as they sort of iterate and get this program ready to market. >> becky, thank you. we know you'll be on top.
long-standing high school tradition naming that class valedictorian. an indiana school district considering a proposal that we move that title and replacing it with a more inclusive system of student recognition. t.j. holmes is here. so -- >> like this? in no, i don't think. i think people should be we regarded for being incredible. why does this high school want to stop this. the everybody gets a trophy mentality. >> puts and kids are not making decisions based on future and dlej but trying to get the gpa up and they'll vote on the school board next week. if it's the case they will do away with valedictorians but before we give them too much of a hard time it's a growing trend around the country. >> is it really. >> it is. a lot of schools are getting rid of the valedictorians. >> i'm kind of with amy. i do understand the idea if kids are manipulating their schedules and not challenging themselves
purpose. >> not just about the easy cases but proliferation of ap and honor courses and can inflate your gpa. if we're in the same seen color, that would have been fun, right? senior class and i get all as, she does but she ma nanipulatede system and she has a 4.7, i have a 4.0. why is hers better. >> all these kids are >> isn't competition healthy, becky, brad? >> well. i bet they're saying -- >> i didn't want to hear what they had to say anyway. school last year, 30 valedictorians in california. 1 17 valedictorians in one graduating class because they said forget the system, anybody with a 4.0 and above you're a valedictorian.
class. >> that waters down the system. >> do we have the mikes up for becky and brad. >> hello. can anyone hear us, america. celebrating winners makes others want to be winners, i'm sticking with it. >> brad. >> absolutely. it's a competition and it's healthy and kids don't get enough of it. >> we are all old school. >> but we're not running school boards. >> t.j., becky, brad, thanks to all of you. that new ad putting the blame for bad travel the passengers. does it go too far? back in two minutes. americans are buying more and more of everything online. and so many businesses rely on the united states postal service to get it there. because when you ship with us, your business becomes our business. that's why we make more ecommerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country.

and most of us, we blame the airlines. their the ones who pack us like sardines and sell us soggy tuna sandwiches. if that sounds like you, this might make you mad. long tsa line, short tempers. >> there's no flight. >> reporter: shrinking legroom, expanding baggage fees. >> don't give me this [ bleep ]. >> reporter: in this brand spanking new ad american airlines is makes a good passenger, they walk faster in airports and know their mood contributes to the mood of the flight. they pack like they're doing a jigsaw. are they blaming us for the pain we feel when flying? buck up, cupcake, it's you, not us. comments under the ad on youtube include americans' marketing team needs to be fired. it's kind of "plane, trains, automobiles." >> i've had just about of you.
me. >> reporter: american airlines ranks lowest in the country for on time arrivals but only average and climbing for customer satisfaction. there is a lot of video of passengers gone wild that does kind of back the american airlines' plea for passengers to always ask before they raise or lower the window shade. i mean this guy had to be duct taped to his seat. still, remember, next time you hear a baby scream, apparently you're just a bad passenger noise-cancelling headphones. american says they're not trying to tell us how to behave but tart a conversation. middle seat, my video monitor was broken, i was next to the bathroom, the toilet overflowed. am i bad passenger? maybe that's payback for my poor armrest etiquette. apparently you're supposed to give the person in the middle both armrests.

price -- $1,000. janet fraidy says the cost of specialty cleaning catches brides unaware. >> they're totally attached to the emotion of how it looks for that day. >> reporter: meanwhile, local cleaners can charge as little as $200 for a gown. with so many price points how is a pride to choose? we bought three identical gowns and had janet create similar stains first makeup. >> if i saw that on my wedding dress, i'd cry. then red wine. grass. looking like our bride slid into second base then chocolate. oh, it hurts. we took one dress to a high-end cleaner, $900. we shipped one dress to an online cleaner, there are a few options, we chose heritage gown, they charged 300 and we took another to a local franchise that charged 250. once the dresses were cleaned we took them back to janet not telling her which dress went to
was another story. the dress we sent to the expensive cleaner had a residual stain. that wasn't even a stain we put on there in we didn't have a blue stain. of our three which came out cleanest. >> "c." no evidence of makeup or any of the other stains. >> "c" is the one we sent to the $300 online cleaner. >> the expensive dress, a little residue. that's the chain dress, quite a bi the online $300 cleaning, it looks really good. the national cleaner's association says experience matters and they add we advise searching online reviews and calling cleaners to ask about their methods, training and experience. the high-end cleaner says it reflects environmental friendly cleaning methods and hand wash and press each item. will she say yes to a clean dress? as for debra she sent her dress
>> oh, yes. looks as good as when i bought it. >> i am wearing a wedding dress for a reason and it has to do with dress preservatipreservati. we got gloves and a fancy muslin bag and offer preservation at a premium. sometimes hundreds of dollars. you can buy an acid-free box and acid-free tissue paper online and preserve it yourself. i got these for around $50 which brings me back to the dress. we have a little game. >> we do. we have an audience here and they are here for a reason. we'll play a little game. we want you to try and guess how old the dress is that becky is wearing, ten years old, 20 years old or 75 years old? so you all go stand under the graphic you think it is. >> that was quick. >> oh, this is what you thought.
all right. now, we want you to turn around for the answer. the dress is -- yes! yes. this dress -- there's a story. this is my wedding dress, my grandmother wore this dress in 1939. we have a picture of it. my mother wore it in 1967. i could not even get my forearm into the sleeve so the sleeves came off. i had to take some of the train make it bigger but it's beautiful. >> 75 years. this was just hanging on a hanger in the back of my mom's closet. no preservation at all. >> wow. >> so no dry cleaning bag, but, you know, just the air can sometimes -- >> and the beauty. it's all in one. speaking of wedding anniversary, can we -- >> yep. >> oh. >> jerry and sherry are having

to despite the fact if you have woken up and there has been no rain. there's rainfall and gusty winds. p we'll watch the showers, the individual showers spring up on us here. then we'll watch the bands of rain moving in. those are the ones that won tape tropical storm force winds and the water pushing in with high tide. you. >> coming up next it is the makeup trend taking over the runway and the red carpet. no makeup, of course, there
hi, we're back with another update as we were talking about 65 mile-per-hour storms. the storm is not as well organized with the thunderstorms wrapping around. florida is on the eastern side, right? heaviest weather as far as rainfall today and also gusty winds. you see the band here moving farther west this morning. it continues to inch in. this pocket here will get the tornadoes and that continues this afternoon and eventually we'll get into the rain bands that will continue with strong winds, tropical storm force wind daniel here as everything pushes to the east. the strongest of the winds,
north. you don't have to worry about that. that will be for april latch coe with a and makes landfall at 75. if it makes it, it will be the first one in ten years. we have been inland also for the morning commute. here's janelle with the update. >> i wish every morning commute could be like this. the only trouble spot we have out there is in st. pete. we have flooding on it we mains closed due to the flooding between 38th avenue south and 47th avenue south. one alternate for you 275 seems to be running real good right now. southbound 301 at the selmon expressway not seeing a huge backup from that. take a look outside at how wide open the lanes are. this is a look at i-275 in hillsborough.
welcome back to "gma" on this
rainy thursday. the new makeup trend where less is more. >> correct. the no makeup look is having a moment from hollywood's hottest to stay-at-home moms, everyone is towning down the glams. making your natural features shine. ? maybe we could care a little more ? >> it was the mvt vma performance everyone was talking about and not just because of alicia keys' powerful words but because of her bold decision to go makeup-free. >> thank you. >> she's not the only one in the glitterati ditching dramatic makeup downsizes to a more natural look. kim kardashian who often rocks smoky eyelids and bold lips dialing it back and looking
earth approach. amman do seefried, jessica alba, kerry washington, all hitting up the red carpet sans the red lipstick. from the red carpet to the runway freshes are fresh. joining me "allure" magazine editor in chief michelle lee. why is it such a trend? >> to be honest with you we're all in the crazy time of the year where around trying to get our kids ready for back to school so when we're doing that the time for primping tends to go way downhill so it's nice to find a retine incredibly fast but if you're like me and really terrified of going fully bare faced we'll learn how to do the no makeup makeup look. >> give us tips. >> yes, of course, key thing is starting with a good foundation so you have to have a nicely well hydrated face. >> you mean moisturizer. >> moisturizer so start with a
that under a moisturizer, extra brownie points if it has sunscreen and -- >> skin care first. >> skin care first absolutely because the whole key in this look you want it to have your fresh skin glowing through so a lot of people think let me go to foundation next, i say go to a trialer. what a good primer will do -- >> i always wondered when you use your primer in primer at this point so what it's going to do, help absorb some of that those large pores, so when you do put foundation on you put on less. >> okay, but then the foundation. >> well, not quite yet. >> okay. >> so what i like to do for this, actually use blush under foundation so what this does, is actually will give you a nice natural flush that looks like you got off a treadmill as opposed to -- >> getting on the treadmill and doing that? >> so after do you that then put on your foundation. >> blush first.
foundation on all over the face because we want to go for a natural look so use our foundation as a concealer as you can see with our model here. >> under the eye. >> under the eyes, normally around the nostrils, anywhere you have a little redness and the key here is that foundation tends to be a little more shearer than concealer so you really won't look like you have a full face of makeup on. >> it isn't that much work. >> it's not that much work. really, really fast. >> what about that sponge? i heard this is like a magic trick. if you want a little more coverage in certain places take a damp makeup sponge, it has to be damp and dab it on the certain places where you want more coverage. so the key with the makeup sponge it's going to help with the pigments and take off excess makeup too and have that fresh look. >> you can use any sponge. the important part it's damp. >> it should be damp. we're big fans of this beauty blender.
alexand alexandra has the last look. >> go for a couple sweeps of lightweight mascara that will open up your eyes, with the lip, enhance that natural lip color so we went with a pink other-nude to pinkish-brown mixed with lip balm and final touch doing your brows so we took a really nice tinted brow gel and just kind of sweep that along the brows especially concentrating the color on the dark. >> you look beautiful. i love this is back to what she had. just enhanced it. >> she looks great and she's ready to go. >> that wasn't too. work. i like it. and the september issue of "allure" is on newsstands now and back out to ginger. >> oh, let's do it, sara. look at this. birthday corner over here. this guy is 50. this woman is 50. and this young lady is 13. your name. >> sarah. >> she wants to be on "gma" someday so we have to watch out for her.
happened today. remember we talked about the wind but flash flood watches in effect from tallahassee and tampa up through north carolina. we put on the futurecast. you can see severe weather is a threat. don't forget this comes with the threat of isolated tornadoes all the way through the carolinas on top of that half foot of rain or more. >> this weather report brought to you by target. i'm doing my rain dance and it's raining. >> and you can dance so it works. now to a movie getting early oscar bus, "the light between oceans" stars one of hollywood's hottest couples, michael fassbender and alicia vikander. i recently sat down with michael to hear all about his powerful
