winds, and lightning, from maryland to maine. in lowell, massachusetts, witnesses report bricks blown off this smokestack. by a blast of lightning. beachgoers sent running by several massive jolts. one of them striking two beachgoers. another strike sending this home up in flames in pennsylvania. across new england, roads and yards soaked by several inches of rain, as winds up to 60 miles an hour sent trees crashing through homes and power lines. in west virginia, highways and homes swallowed by flash floods. look at this truck that was almost completely engulfed by water. >> when i came out here, it was like a river down florida street. >> reporter: and in the nation's capital, this time lapse showing how quickly a mild day turned violent and stormy. meanwhile, the west feeling some of the moisture from norbert. roadways in california washed away by raging floodwaters while winds and rain batter arizona. the moisture from norbert will continue to stream up to the north and the east.
yesterday at this time, we were talking about it exploding to category 3 status, with winds of 120 miles an hour. it's quickly weakening. 75 miles an hour or so. it heads into cooler water. the main issue will be the stream of moisture. and also those waves. they'll continue to get large swells moving into parts of southern california. not a whole lot of rain there yesterday. might get some today. but in through arizona, new mexico, up through utah, the possibility of flash flooding continues for the next several days. we'll have a complete outlook for the rest fof nation in a few minutes. dan, back over to you. >> we're keeping you busy on your first weekend, rob. thank you for that. we'll get back to you for the national forecast in a moment. but as we mentioned earlier, a-list celebrities will descend on a temple in manhattan today. in her last interview, she was asked about the end of her life. shshe answered, quote,hey're going to say i had a great ride. and there is no question about
that. let's go to mara schiavocampo. who is outside temple emanu-el. good morning to you, mara. >> reporter: a great ride. and dan, no doubt what will be a great memorial. hugh jackman will be performing, playing rivers favorite song, quiet please, there's a lady on stage, from "the boy from oz." just one of many gathering to honor the legend. in many ways, rivers memorial service will be just what she said she wanted. >> i want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair, with lights and cameras and action. >> reporter: a private, star-studded event at one of the world's biggest houses of worship. "us weekly" reporting there will even be a red carpet. >> you'll see a-listers walking the carpet or the walkway into the temple. once the doors are closed, it will be family and friends remembering joan. >> reporter: saturday, rivers'
only daughter, melissa, said an emotional farewell outside the funeral home. kissing her mother's casket just after it was put in the hearse. now, newly unearthed information on rivers' health. the star telling joan lunden in 1985 that she had a heart condition. >> i have an arrhythmatic heart. if you go under, for plastic surgeries or something like that, that's when your heart can go out of kilter. i'm always very careful. >> reporter: she went into cardiac arrest during a routine procedure at this clinic. passing away after a week of life support. in the wake of her death, so many are remembering the woman who revolutionized comedy over the last five decades. >> i found this dress on the chair next to my husband's bed. isn't that lucky? >> reporter: the legendary improv comedy club puttinghis quote from rivers on their marquee.
i succeeded by saying what everyone else is saying. >> every week i go to a funeral, the minister says the same thing. she's in a better place. not so, she had a house in the hamptons. >> reporter: they're investigating rivers' death, though there has been no evidence of any wrong doing. paul will? >> thank you, mara. mara will cover this story all day and have more on "world news." we turn now to a health emergency that has sent kids across the country to the intensive care unit. it's a rare respiratory virus. we're going to talk to our dr. richard besser in a minute. but first, abc's clayton sandell. >> reporter: this morning, it's a mystery respiratory virus. >> i was having trouble breathing. >> reporter: striking more than 1,000 children across ten states. >> the onset of symptoms is very rapid, usually within hours. >> reporter: doctors believe something called enterovirus 68 may be the culprit. linked to the common cold -- >> it could go from a cold to being minutes away from death.
that's kind of scary. >> reporter: it can cause wheezing and is dangerous especially to children with asthma. >> my heart started hurting. after my lungs started sort of closing up. >> reporter: 13-year-old will cornejo, who has asthma got what he thought was a simple cold. it turned out the be much worse. >> he came really close to death. he was unconscious at our house and white as a ghost, blue lips. >> reporter: now recovering at rocky mountain hospital for children in denver, he's making progress. but doctors still have no clue as to what is causing the rare virus to spread in the first place. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> so we bring in dr. richard besser. who has been talking to the cdc's director of the division of viral diseases. good morning. first of all, ten states asking the cdc for assistance. we don't know what for certain this is. why now?
why sit -- is it happening? >> it's a common time for outbreaks. kids come back to school. they like to share things. they bring them home to their little brothers and sisters. and enteroviruses tend to occur in the summer. but this one, this particular number 68, is very rare. they have no idea why it showed up this year. >> it's tricky because the symptoms can mask that of a common cold. what should parents look for? how dangerous can this be? >> it can start like a cold. runny nose, sneezing, coughs. it's the wheezing you have to watch for. in children with asthma in particular it can be dangerous. if a cold goes into difficulty breathing, get help right away. >> of course it's difficult to treat a virus. you have to contract it first. what is the best way to prevent? >> prevention, we talk about it, hand-washing is critically important. that's how these are shared. good hand-washing. covering coughs and sneezes. keep your children home when they're sick so they don't share it. the your child has asthma, make
sure they have their medicine. if you hear the wheezing, get them to the doctor. so they can avoid some of the complications. >> and so far, ten states. look like it's a couple of coastal states, north carolina and georgia. what about this possibly spreading more? >> we talked about this. i talked about it with the cdc. viruses don't tend to respect borders. it's only ten states now. it will be across the country. if your state doesn't have it now, watch for it. it's coming. >> all right, parent, be vigilant. dr. richard besser, thank you so much. there is anger this morning in the hispanic community over a decision made by president obama. he had promised to take action soon on immigration reform. protecting families from the threat of deportation. now he's saying he'll wait until after the elections in november. and abc's jim avila son the story. >> reporter: a six-year string of promises to reform immigration delayed again. the white house confirming the latest promise made in june in the rose garden for the president to act on his own no longer in play.
>> today, i'm beginning a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as i can on my own. without congress. >> reporter: a vow reaffirmed as late as last friday in wales. >> in the absence of action by congress, i'm going to do what i can do within the legal constraints of my office. and i'll be making an announcement soon. >> reporter: soon is now after the november elections, way past the summer deadline promised. and hispanic voters, so important for the president's two elections, are feeling betrayed again. >> this very clearly tells us that both democrats and the president are playing politics and they're picking their political interests first over immigrant families that have been waiting for the president to act. >> reporter: the gop, which warned the president against acting alone, now criticizing him for the delay. in the end, the white house risking what it hopes is
temporary anger of an ally -- [ chanting ] -- to avoid inciting the gop base by acting alone on a hot button issue. for "good morning america," jim avila, abc news, los angeles. >> it's a hot issue as jim said. let's bring in george stephanopoulos, the host of abc's "this week." good morning. >> good morning. >> is this move a broken promise, smart politics, or both? >> might be both. the president really had no choice on this one by the end. he was getting so much pressure from senate democrats telling him if you do this before the election, democrats are going lose the senate. he saw that. he just said, i can't go forward. if the president does go forward after the election, all the fences will be mended. with the latino community. there's the real question, dan. the president and the white house now saying they're committed to moving forward after the election. if the democrats lose the senate any way, after this, will the president be more constrained? will he be able to do the
dramatic executive action that latinos are calling for. that's a big, open question. >> a lot of open questions on this one. let me move to a different front here. we're hearing from our chief white house correspondent, jon karl, that the president is planning a major speech this week on his strategy to take on isis. does he have a strategy? >> the president made progress in europe this week, lining up our alice to join him in the strategy to take on isis not only in iraq but possibly syria as well. everyone saying you probably need air strikes in syria as well. the president is not ready to announce that yet. one of the other questions there though is going to be, does he need to come to congress in in order to get authority to expand the war into syria? many republicans calling for that. some democrats as well. but, again, coming before the election, this might be too much of a risk for the president to go to congress and ask for that authority. >> a major speech coming up this
week. george, thank you. we should say george has a big show this morning.g. he'll talk to senator ted cruz a major critic of the president and a potential presidential contender. later this morning on "this week" right here on abc. and we have a lot of other developing stories right now. so, as always, we turn to ron claiborne. >> good morning to you, paula faris and dan harris. breaking news overnight about the future of matthew miller an american being held prisoner in north korea. he's to be put on trial next sunday. accused of committing a hostile act against the state for tearing up his tourist visa and demanding asylum back in april. it will be a one-day tribunal. they're calling on the u.s. to send a high-level special envoy to negotiate the release of miller and two other americans being held in north korea. and overseas, a cease-fire in ukraine appears the to be threatened this morning after strong explosions rocked the
region near donetsk. ukraine, russia, and the backed separatists signed a cease-fire. in an effort to end four months of bloodshed. they agreed on the withdrawal of all heavy weaponry. and in tennis, not one but two big upsets at the u.s. open. on the men's side. 24-year-old, tenth seed kei nishikori stunned novak djokovic. to become the first asian player ever to reach a grand slam singles final. and then, a few hours later, another huge upset, 14th seed croatian marin cilic taking down the great roger federer, the number two seed, in straight sets. cilic and nishikori meet in the finals on monday. meanwhile, the women's final is today, serena williams against caroline wozniacki. and new overnight, a missing indiana woman has been found alive. joelle lockwood was reunited with her family.

choppers passed overhead only to keep flying. failing to spot them. with her leg severely injured, she was stuck. forcing blake to make the toughest decision of his life. >> i knew we wouldn't survive another night. i knew i had to try climbing down and if i made it i could save us both. if i didn't, we would both have died any way. >> reporter: by sheer determination, he made it down. >> i walked right up on the search and rescue guys and said, i need a helicopter. >> reporter: relieved but facing the horror of possibly losing his fiance, still in the wilderness, out of the rescuers' reach. >> she was on the side of the cliff well out of sight and reach of our access point. it was just absolutely brutal conditions. >> reporter: hours later, crews were finally able to bring her home. oh, and the ring blake was carrying, it made it down, too, on her finger. clearly, she said ye. how do you say no to a proposal like that? they haven't set a date yet. i'll give them time.

a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but wondered if i kept digging, could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis
