to 30 inches of rain and, yes, those extreme winds. max sustained winds at 120 miles an hour. the waters so warm it could strengthen why we're on watch and warning in the bahamas. a lot of other things we'll get into and why we have coastal flood advisories along the east coast. kind of two different systems we'll be talking about. first let's focus on joaquin. the next 24 to 48 hours could strengthen to category 4. then gets into some colder water and, look, sunday early morning still offshore, offshore of north carolina and virginia. it gets a little closer, keeps dying out and looks right now like the computer models shifter further east and north closer to maryland, new jersey and delaware as a tropical storm. beyond 72 hours our uncertainty is high. those computer models i showed you yesterday, all the spaghetti plots have widened, they've become more erratic so less together than they already were and something we'll have to watch toward the weekend. one thing i can promise you this
front, the waves of moisture that will come independent of joaquin, that's going to be a problem. places that have already had a foot of rain could end up with 30 before the hurricane. >> wet no matter what. okay, ginger, thanks very much. abc's gio benitez in seaside heights, new jersey this morning and those are the images right after hurricane sandy, so much devastation there. and gio, they have come so far but they're worried about getting hit again. >> reporter: that's right, george. this place is just getting back to normal. we all saw those devastating pictures after sandy. this is the same boardwalk completely redone. here on the beach these giant walls of sand, they've been built to prevent any water damage from this next storm joaquin. up and down the east coast, roads flooded. >> dude, i don't know if my car is going to make it. >> reporter: and residents soaked by relentless rains now bracing for hurricane joaquin. >> everyone along the east coast
should still be monitoring for the possibility of a hurricane coming to where you live. >> reporter: states potentially in joaquin's crosshair, north carolina, virginia, west virginia, maryland, delaware, new jersey, pennsylvania and new york. all expecting more heavy rain today even before joaquin. overnight, virginia's governor already declaring a state of emergency. virginia beach crews working into the night preparing for the worst. a coastal flood watch now on the jersey shore where signs of sandy remain three years later. >> sandy was so traumatic for this community. >> that's the problem. when you go through something like that, you know, it's like you touch the testify if it's hot. >> reporter: all along the shore berms are being built. >> cars off the street. make sure everything is buckled down. >> reporter: and now many of those homes raised on stilts after sandy. homeowners hoping for zero
flooding. >> doesn't take a major hurricane to cause a major impact. we have a difficult two to three days to prepare but along the way there's some bad weather to contend with. >> reporter: and nobody here wants to cry wolf but believe me, everyone here has that question on their minds. what if it happens again? robin. >> all right, gio, thank you. we see the surf behind you. before it possibly hits it is bearing down on the bahamas. and abc's linzie janis is in nassau this morning for us. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. hurricane-force winds are battering the bahamas right here in nassau it's expected to get much worse over the next 24 to 48 hours. life-threatening storm surges headed this way up to eight-foot wave, also up to 20 inches of rain in some parts. the government telling people and tourists here to take precautions and cruise lines are diverting ships away from the islands. robin. >> all right, thank you. >> everyone getting prepared. we turn now to the dramatic
escalation of the war in syria. russia launching its first air strikes there. they claim isis is the target but the evidence suggests they may really be defending the assad regime. martha raddatz tracking this dangerous development. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. there are reports out of syria this morning that russia launched dozens more air strikes all in areas where isis does not operate. the russians have been saying the reason they're getting involved in this conflict is to target isis. but senior u.s. officials say what russia is really doing is helping syria's dictator assad stay in power. by targeting opposition forces, some of them backed by the u.s. the u.s. has been saying for four years that assad must go. but with russia now involved, militarily, the chances of any political deal to get assad out of power have been greatly diminished meaning the civil war will become even more dangerous and the russians did not wait
for talks with the u.s. to coordinate the strikes and make certain our pilots were safe, they basically said, stay out of our way. all of this so the secretary of defense said gasoline added to the fire. >> millions have been made refugees already. now to hillary clinton, the new questions about whether her private e-mail was targeted by russian linked hackers. the democratic front-runner about the claims on the benghazi attack. cecilia vega is here with the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning, more than 6,000 e-mails out, the ones that hillary clinton hand selected and turned over for review and now some are raising serious questions about just how vulnerable her private server may have been. the subject line said traffic ticket. an e-mail appearing to be from the new york dmv, a speeding ticket for hillary clinton. but it turns out the e-mail sent to the then secretary of state was reportedly tied to russian
linked hackers on a phishing expedition trying to crack into her private account, not just once, but five times. >> all of the information in the e-mails was handled appropriately. >> reporter: the e-mails instructed clinton to print the attached tickets and with that hackers could have accessed her computer. but clinton's campaign telling abc news all these e-mails show is that like millions of other americans she spereceived spam. others saying it shows how vulnerable she was. >> it's inexcusable. >> reporter: the house committee that brought the controversy to light also back in the spotlight. republican kevin mccarthy, the california congressman hoping to replace speaker john boehner suggesting the bipartisan investigation into the benghazi attacks gets credit for clinton's sagging poll numbers. >> everybody thought hillary clinton was unbeatable, right? but we put together a benghazi
special committee, a select committee, what are her numbers today? >> reporter: clinton is firing back. >> when i hear a statement like that, which demonstrates unequivocally that this was always meant to be a partisan, political exercise, i feel like it does a grave disservice. >> reporter: yes, she he is not happy. on those e-mails it's not clear whether those reported russian linked hackers knew they were targeting clinton specifically. her campaign says there is no evidence that she opened these attachments or that she replied to the e-mails. they say no breach happened. >> okay, cecilia, also a fund-raising headline this morning. bernie sanders now neck and neck with hillary clinton when it comes to raising cash. >> reporter: that's right, bernie sanders just about matching clinton's fund-raising in the last three months, nearly 28 million to her 26 million. from small contributions like president obama raised. a tough road ahead for hillary clinton.

>> mr. trump, mr. trump -- >> reporter: i asked him about the crass language and renewed energy and got more than an answer much you were fired up. >> i was fired up. you better believe it. when i see what's happening to our country i'm fired up and i hope you see the new polls coming out. >> reporter: trump's actions but his actions are unpredictable. >> on a humanitarian basis with what's happening, you have to. >> reporter: but last night in new hampshire. >> if i win they're going back. they're going back. i'm telling you. >> reporter: his new comments a sharp contrast to those from jeb bush, also holding a campaign event in the same state at the same time. bush hugging a syrian-american woman worried about her family back home. >> send them all back to a hell hole? that's not the america i know. >> reporter: in new hampshire wednesday, dr. ben carson, he raised more than $20 million last quarter. supporters like his outside repeal. i asked him how he would handle what is now a hurricane in the atlantic. what would you be doing if you

would was investigating the agency. abc's pierre thomas is in washington with that story. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. today disturbing allegations raising serious questions about the culture of the secret service and whether agents attempted to smear a siing u.s. congressman. this morning, just one day after receiving praise from the president for successfully protecting the pope and overseeing the visit of the chinese president -- >> i wanted to make a special commendation of our secret service. >> reporter: the secret service back in the headlines with yet another scandal. >> the threat is real. >> reporter: last spring just 18 minutes after a hearing on potential secret service misconduct, agents began checking a personnel database targeting republican congressman jason chaffetz. who had been investigates the agency's series of scandals ranking from allegations of prostitution/solicitation, drunkenness and white house fence jumpers and found he had
been rejected by the secret service after applying for a job and in one stunning e-mail uncovered by the homeland security inspector general, ed lowry, overseeing the training wrote "some information that he chaffetz might find embarrassing needs to get out just to be fair. at least 18 secret service officials knew about the misconduct but did nothing to stop it. >> it scares me. it really does. it is intimidating and it's absolutely totally wrong. if they're doing this to me, they're probably doing it to others. >> lowery told investigators he was angry but did not leak information on chaffetz to the media and the media didn't find out who did but within days of that snooping a story on chaffetz was posted online. >> thank you. amy with the morning's other top stories including major developments in afghanistan overnight. >> intense fighting is being reported as the u.s. launches more air strikes hoping to retake the key city of konduz in

"gma" goes pink this morning. there have been so many headlines recently about breast cancer diagnosis and the treatment including the impact angelina jolie is having on women's awareness about the disease. we're going to speak with jolie's surgeon in a moment but first a look at how far we've come. it's a disease that seems to touch nearly every family and never leaves the headlines. this year more than 230,000 women in the u.s. can expect a breast cancer diagnosis. but thanks to early diagnosis and advanced in treatment, it's far from a death sentence. in fact, the five-year survival rate is now 90%.
increased awareness is also proving beneficial. after testing positive for the brca1 gene angelina jolie had a double mastectomy and removal of her ovaries. following that there was a surge of women seeking genetic testing and this week another study showed her story parked improved public awareness about reconstructive breast surgery options. >> when one of the most beautiful women in the world comes forward with her medical decision-making it's a really important conversation starter and gives individuals a lot of information to take to their doctors. >> reporter: and genetics isn't just being used to cooling late risk but on the front lines. it enables some to skip chemotherapy following diagnosis and get jet ticks are being used for those with the disease. and joining us now is angelina jolie's breast surgeon and the co-founder of the pink lotus breast center, dr. kristi funk.

and fallopian tube, as well. is that something all women should consider. >> all brca patients should consider it. the new party line, the guidelines are brca1, ovaries out by 35 years old, brca2 by 40. you can freeze eggs and keep your uterus so future pregnancy and childbearing is not off the table but dying from ovarian cancer is. >> who should get tested. >> the short list is if you yourself have had breast cancer under 50 or ovarian cancer at any age or family history, mom and dad's side, first, second and third degree generations so your dad's mother's brother, what did he die from was it pancreatic, you should know the answer. any had breast under 50, ovarian any age, any men had breast cancer or known gene mutation. quick one-minute quiz, br
brcatestquiz.com. >> that's perfect. it does affect so many and speaking of genetics they are helping us not only decide if people are at rick for cancer, but determining course of treatment. >> exactly so there are some gene tests that kind of look at the fingerprint, like the personal biology of your cancer. does that guy want to come back again in a liver, lung, brain kind of place and if it does, chemo is going to help make that number lower but if it doesn't you're off the hook. chemo won't help, don't even do it. >> tell me about the pink lotus foundation. >> i'm the ambassador of the pink lotus foundtation and what we do is provide low income uninsured and underinsured women 100% free access to breast cancer screenings, diagnosis, care, support and this also impacts women who are just devastated financially maybe a spouse died or there's a fire that burnt down their home. it happens and these women all across america go homeless over a diagnosis trying to pay for it. >> thank you bore for what you

loss? some experts say, no. >> what you're doing is you're increasing your external core temperature and you're also increasing your heart rate so although it fees harder, you're not actually burning more energy and burring more calories. >> reporter: plus working out in the heat could be harmful to your health. does working out in a hot environment increase your rick of injury? >> people have this perceived sense they have more flexibility and they go into positions that they probably shouldn't be going into or don't have the ability to go into. >> reporter: what you're really doing experts say is increasing your chance of major water loss. >> as you're sweating more you're dehydrating your body so run the risk of severe dehydration and other heat-borne illnesses. >> reporter: a cool trend that may not be so hot after all. now, because of the water loss you will see weight loss after a hot workout but it's news temporary and will come right back. the recommended temperature for outdoor exercise about 55 degrees which is perfect this

impacts everyone around them especially caregivers, whether it's a spouse, a child or a friend, andrew and i sat down with the "hangover" star ken jeong and his wife to help her get through the toughest year of their lives together. >> chow. >> what happened last night? >> am i missing a tooth? >> we're getting married in five hours. >> that's not going to happen. >> they say laughter is the best medicine and it turns out that's exactly what one of the most iconic comedic roles became for ken jeong and his wife tran when they faced the unthinkable. >> got a call from the surgeon. she said that it was breast cancer so didn't look good at that time. >> reporter: that was the day ken and tran's life changed forever. something my husband and i know all too well. facing a diagnosis is devastating for the patient but the impact on the spouse and caregiver is sometimes forgotten.
tran's thoughts as did mine went straight to her children, her twin daughters, just 1 year old at the time of her diagnosis. >> i thought i had these girls. what am i going to do if i don't survive this? >> right away you have to become very practical and very strong. >> does your marriage get stronger, do you lean on each other? tell me what happens between the two of you. >> ken was so strong for me. when the opportunity of "the hangover" came up he really worried mr. -- he said, i don't know if i should do this. >> reporter: in fact the call to take on what woo be a watershed career moment came right in the middle of tran's grueling chemotherapy treatments. >> ken, did you know this was going to be the role of a life much time? >> no. not at all. >> oh. >> reporter: he called me and said, tran, what do you say if i did this scene naked? are you okay with that and i said, of course. >> of course. >> who was that guy? he was so mean. >> you just say this when the movie came out, it would -- it's a feel-good movie of the summer because every guy goes home
feeling good about themselves. >> chow, you gave us the wrong doug. >> not my problem. >> reporter: what was meant to be the comedic antics of a korean gangster suddenly also became therapy. the anger of mr. chow which was so funny, it really came from such a dark place. >> yeah. >> you were going through. >> i would ad lib i'm korean, i would speak vietnamese in the movie and like i'd say ga chiech chik. that's vietnamese for chicken die. differences between me and tran -- >> which would make me laugh. >> which i would sprinkle through and do little vietnamese phrased to make tran laugh. it's like the weirdest love letter to your wife in a very filthy movie. >> let's go. >> i've often thought when i had time to reflect all the attention is on the cancer patient and care givers don't get the same kind of support and
love. >> i look at that in many ways as kind of getting me through the worst period of my life. >> it says a lot about you, though, that you were so supportive in saying, go do this because you said you're a team to kind of let him build himself up to be even stronger was a great thing you did. you guys really are a team. >> a formidable team arming themselves with laughter and a little help from a billion dollar movie franchise, battling tran's breast cancer until she was declared cancer-free a moment that ken would later memorialize at the 2010 mtv movie awards. >> i want to take the opportunity to thank my wife, tran, the reason why i did this she told me that life is short and then don't be afraid to take chances and i just want to tell you that tran is cancer-free for two years. >> one of the best things i heard from the beginning is tran, this is going to take a year. >> my doctor said be prepared. you will have a year of help and then it will get better. >> oh, when talking about his
"hangover" cast mates he said when i see those guysless a deeper bond that trance skipdzs fame or fortune. in fact on ken's last day of filming bradley cooper drove him home so that they could both see tran and she is now -- her twins are 8 and she is still cancer-free and doing so well >> that's great. >> so wonderful you're bringing attention to the care givers and spouse, those that stand behind those going through it because you're right. >> couldn't do it without them. >> no way. no how. hmm. beautiful. >> thank you. coming up we got "dance" champ rumer willis making her broadway debut. she is here performing live. stay with us. ♪ you're toxic ♪ i am invincible no i ain't a scared little girl anymore ♪ ♪ yeah i am invincible

reviews and know you've been doing it for a little while till november 1st. "dancing with the stars," that is a grueling show. see the end result, you're doing eight shows a week with "chicago" so did "dancing with the stars" prepare you. >> i think it definitely helped. the stamina alone to be able to get through an eight-show a week and keep it fresh and fun every day. i wouldn't -- i don't think i would have been able to do it without having done "dancing with the stars." >> it's beautiful how you wrote in "glamour" magazine how that time also helped you with the self-confidence but i was disturbed to hear you still have problems online with people bullying. >> unfortunately, i think it's one of those things that we've -- almost in a generation now where it's become socially acceptable for that kind of behavior and what bothers me the most is seeing young women put each other down because i think, you know, obviously each of us has our own things that, you know, we see that our own personal insecurities but when you have other people attacking
you and especially from behind the computer you can say a lot of things and so my goal at least was if there's any way i can use the things that i've gone through and experienced to help other people and remind them they're special and there's wrong with you. if you look different, if you have a different way, whatever it is, whoever you are is completely amazing and you have to love them and make them what's special about you instead of fighting hem. >> powerful message. i'm glad you're surrounded by such love. your family. even your daddy is on broadway in "misery." >> i was excited i beat him. i'll show you the ropes. >> i love it, rumer. don't miss this woman, rumer willis at the ambassador theater now through sunday, november 1st. and, okay, go ahead. >> thank you. >> make your way there. being transported back to "chicago" in the 1920s. i'm stretching a little bit. here's rumer willis and the cast performing, you got it, "roxie." ♪ the name on everybody's lip is
