massive tornado on their phones. [ sirens ] >> reporter: sirens blaring in litchfield where it wreaked havoc. >> we got a lot of houses damaged. >> reporter: the twister picking up one neighbor's garage and dropping it in the front yard of this home. the inside of this home completely exposed after its roof was peeled right off. watch as a smaller but still powerful tornado obliterates this barn. and another giant funnel cloud looming near this neighborhood. while this tornado touched down dangerously close to one family's backyard. and this morning we know they are planning to go out and survey the damage to see just how bad the storms were here in this area. robin. >> all right, eva, thank you. now to the race for the white house. the republican national convention less than a week away the party trying to come together behind donald trump as comments he made years ago supporting hillary clinton emerge. abc's tom llamas is on the
7:04 am
he's in indianapolis this morning. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. if the clinton campaign doesn't have their hands yet on these audio recordings, they likely will soon. so far the trump campaign has yet to comment on the content of the recordings which some may find surprising. this morning, donald trump's past coming back to haunt him. >> there's one other really good reason men, that you might want to drag out the vacuum cleaner. psychologists have found that the payoff for doing more chores seems to be more sex. >> reporter: "the wall street journal" posting audio clips from trump's syndicated radio segment called trumped which ran from 2004 to 2008. from the boardroom to the bedroom trump covered it all. >> men in saudi arabia have the authority to divorce their wives without going to the courts. i guess that would also mean they don't need prenuptial agreements. the fact is, no courts, no judges, saudi arabia sounds l
7:05 am
divorce. >> reporter: and in one commentary trump showered praise on a certain politician. hillary clinton. just listen. >> well, i know her and she'd make a good president or a good vice president. >> reporter: but that was before trump was running for president and before the investigation into clinton's private e-mail server. >> if elected hillary clinton would become the first president of the united states who wouldn't be able to pass a background check. >> reporter: trump back to putting the pressure on clinton and moving closer to selecting a running mate. trump telling the ap the list is down to four. campaign sources say the candidates at the top of the list include former house speaker newt gingrich, new jersey governor chris christie, retired general michael flynn and indiana governor mike pence who initially endorsed senator ted cruz but now says he's committed to making trump the next president. >> i'm prepared to make that case anywhere across indiana and anyw
7:06 am
that donald trump would want me to. >> reporter: now governor pence and trump will be campaigning and fund-raising here in indiana today and over in new hampshire, a big day for hillary clinton. she's expected to receive the endorsement from one-time rival senator bernie sanders at a joint appearance later today. george. >> that is coming up. we'll have more on the democrats now. my interview with vice president joe biden, he weighed on the veepstakes and hillary clinton's honesty problem and can't hide what he really thinks of donald trump. >> i am the law and order candidate. >> donald trump was out saying he is the law and order candidate. he's going to make america safe again. is that your response, a laugh? >> well, i'd rather not make this story about donald trump, so i'm going to restrain myself, but the truth of the matter is that one of the problems we've this is getting funding for
7:07 am
enforcement from his party, and maybe he'll come forward and be supportive of more support for community policing. >> we're just a week from the republican convention and latest polls show most americans actually think donald trump is more honest than hillary clinton. how big a problem is that and how does she fix it? >> she fixes it just by the campaign and for people to listen more closely to what donald trump is saying. and that will happen. this as you know, george, is early in the campaign season. my grandpop used to say people didn't focus until after the world series. he's wrong. you no i think they begin to focus after labor day but i don't think there's even a remote comparison between the competence, the question is, are the proposals that hillary clinton's put forward honest and real and going to fundamentally possley impact on the lives of the vast majority of the american people and is donald trump -- is he putting forward
7:08 am
being able to do anything constructive for dealing with the problems america faces? on that score, i think it's going to be clear before the election day. >> would you reup for vp if hillary clinton asked? >> no, no, i'm not interested in reupping for vp. i'll do anything i can to help her win and i think she's going to win but i have been proud to serve for eight years as vice president and i think that's enough. >> mr. vice president, thanks for your time today. >> thank you, george. let's get more on this from our political analyst matthew dowd and so, matthew, we know on the democratic side joe biden won't be the vice presidential pick but the republican, that one appears imminent, donald trump said to be announcing this week and so much speculation especially about that indiana governor mike pence. what does he bring to the ticket? >> well, i think mike pence is well respected by many of the conservatives. i think mike pence pick would really seek and really do unite the party. i think the problem with a mike pence pick, it
7:09 am
about geography, indiana is supposed to be a state republicans win and it really doesn't do anything about demoghaddam gras if i, the groups donald trump is having trouble with by his background in the course of this. >> it doesn't appear that anybody on the list would do that for donald trump. >> i think donald trump is in a difficult position because i think the list is short, one, because -- it's also short because others made it short. also, george i was struck by one of the things donald trump said -- i mean donald trump in the interview with joe biden, he sounds like eddie murphy from "48 hours" which there's a new sheriff in town and his fame is reggie hammond. an interesting way donald trump is approaching this. >> bernie sanders today joining hillary clinton. a big step for her. >> yeah, i think it's a huge step for her. as we've seen in the polls especially the polls out recently, hillary clinton has huge problems with younger voters in the course of this and she needs something that's going to turn them out. if she can't turn out the younger voters in this election it's very difficult for her
7:10 am
>> amazing that a 74-year-old would help turn out younger voters. okay, matthew dowd, thanks very much. this amp we'll carry president obama and former president george w. bush's address in the memorial service in dallas later this afternoon. >> they will be together. to the latest on a deadly shooting spree at a michigan courthouse. an inmate breaking free attempting to take hostages and killing two bailiffs before he was killed. abc's linzie janis has the latest. >> he has a gun with a hostage. >> reporter: this morning, more tragedy for law enforcement. this time in a michigan courthouse. >> shots fired. officer down, officer down. >> reporter: around 2:30 monday afternoon, larry gordon, an inmate being escorted from a holding cell to a courtroom allegedly wrestles a gun away from sheriff's deputy james atterberry jr. shooting him and wounding him and then killing two bailiff, identified as 61-year-old joe zangaro and

7:14 am
still raw. >> that i was unable to save those cops when they came here that night, it weighs on my mind constant constantly. this killing, it has to stop. ♪ >> reporter: and a city struggling to heal coming together overnight in this vigil. >> i challenge anyone who comes here who thinks they're going to tear us apart. family, we're here. >> reporter: that healing process set to continue later today. president obama and former president george w. bush will be at that service. afterwards president obama will meet with some of the victims' families and some of the wounded police officers that ran right into that hail of bullets. george. >> okay, matt, thanks. we'll cover that around 2:15 eastern. now to amy with today's other top stories starting with breaking news overseas. >> that's correct. at least 12 people are dead after two trains collided head on today. it happened

7:16 am
they would lower ticket prices by 1% every time stanton hit a home run. the problem is he hit 61 home runs and a 61% discount not so good for business so they're compromising and dropping prices by 25%. >> boo. >> that has been the reaction of fans everywhere. they say they'll do one game at 61%. >> that's breaking a promise. >> thank you very much. >> you would imagine how good he is you don't make that bet in the first place. >> they did. 25%, take what you can get fans, i guess. now turning to a new warning out this morning for small suv owners about their headlights. abc's david kerley is in mclean, virginia, with the details. good morning, david. >> reporter: these are some of the first tests about how well our headlights actually perform in realtime on the roads and the news is not good. this is a first look at tests for small suv headlights and the results are shining a light on what researchers say
7:17 am
deficiencies. watch this. two suvs driving down the same road. the mazda cx-3 with l.e.d. head"the light that never fai " fails"ing up the road searching an acceptable rating from the insurance institute for highway safety. the honda hrv earning a rating of poor. they tested 21 vehicles but not one small suv got the institute's highest rating of good. in fact, nearly two-thirds tested rated poor and just four got the acceptable rating and the difference in headlight performance can vary even among suvs made by the same manufacturer. >> they're both made by honda but the crv on the left and hrv on the right are giving drastically different visibility. >> reporter: researchers say low beeps should reach 330 feet on a straight road. the worst performers reached a little more than half that distance. and it's not just the small suvs, back in march, the institute
7:18 am
ever tests of midsize cars calling those results decision mall. this morning's results, they say, are even more deficient. now, this is the mazda cx-3. it did the best but it was only an acceptable rating. honda which did one of the worst tests in this says that its lightbulbs meet federal standards but what honda and the other manufacturers are realizing maybe these bulbs are not aimed correctly. the angle 70s right so they're all changing as the insurance institute continues to test these vehicles. michael. >> wow. i mean that's a surprising study. now we turn to you, rob. about the storms we heard and major flash flooding. >> the storms not only brought damage but serious flooding across parts of the midwest. a civil emergency and flash flood emergency for wisconsin and minnesota. there you see the line extending all the way down to kansas city where they're getting rough stuff and flood warnings posted as the water continues to rise 6 to 9 inches already falling from kansas city to

christmas in july trending on facebook and sales could double from last year. we'll have your insider's guide to saving big in your next hour because it's not about how much money you spend, it's about how much money you save. >> which makes you spend more. >> i was on there early this morning. already started this morning. but right now we'll start with that think gaming craze of pokemon go. it's only a week old but the numbers every day could soon rival twitter. it brings the online world into the real world and t.j. is all over it. you're out in the world as part of the fun, t.j. you reported yesterday it brings dangers. >> i don't know what the world is coming to because one day after this app launched it already had more users than tinder. look, what you swipe for on your phone is your business, whether that's a pikachu or a pretty lady but people love this thing right now but it turns out you need to be looking out for more than just critters. one week after its
7:32 am
phenomenon and has legions of fans wandering around face down in their smartphones. >> i'm 100% hooked. >> this is crazy. ♪ pokemon >> reporter: the wildly popular gaming app blends the real world with a virtual world using smartphones, gps info to send players on a scavenger hunt of sorts for pokemon, little animated critters that you have to walk around to collect. >> it says i got a pokemon in central park. i come to the spot and, hit a button and i acquire it but what seems like just fun and games is now in some cases creating real-life dangers. in missouri this week three teenagers were charged with armed robbery after allegedly staking out specific game locations then waiting for distracted players, their potential victims to show up. the companies behind the app tell abc news they encourage all people playing pokemon go to be aware of their surroundings and to play with friends when going to new or unfamiliar places. please remember to be safe and
7:33 am
>> part of the app is to lure you to these places that are in your local community so you can hopefully catch a pokemon. and bringing all these people together in one place could have safety concerns of its own. people who are really distracted on their phones and kind of easily -- easy targets to swipe things from. >> reporter: in washington state police say players have been coming to their police department seemingly snooping around outside the building looking for pikachus. >> if you feel the need to run around playing pokemon go, that's cool, just be smart about it. >> reporter: lori is an officer with the devalue police department. >> one way of not playing smart is to go creeping around behind the police department in the early morning hours. this is high on our list of things which are not cool right now. >> reporter: the other potential danger, walking into something or someone. safety issues. this is worse than texting. >> it's a lot worse but worth the risks. >> reporter: ts

7:35 am
it is highly addictive but when i went into the yard i tripped over my dogs, fell and then i trespassed onto my neighbor's property so it's a lawsuit waiting to happen. that's what i saw when i played. i saw personal injury issues, right, because you could be crossing the street get hit by a car because you're looking for something. >> do you think you could sue the gamemaker over that. >> i think it's possible. it's a lawsuit waiting to happen. any lawyer that's looking for, you know, a little bit of work may take a case like this on. >> i think the bigger problem i would have if i were that guy boon who has a converted church as a house and had all these people in my yard i would think about suing for that. >> think about criminal activity because the bottom line is criminals are looking for opportunity and so if you have a gps and you're letting criminals know where you are and if cias want to rob you it's sort of encouraging that kind of communal activity. it could be problematic. >> can they make any private home part of their app. >> they should not be able to make any

7:40 am
everybody is out playing pokemon but on the big board our team of insiders standing by with more on this morning's top stories and up first, new north carolina law on police cams, the governor there signed a law that will keep body and dash cam recordings from being considered public records. joining us is sara azari. the timing could be a little bit better. so how is this going to change if it does go into effect? >> well, the change is going to be drastic come october 1st because the body cam and dash cam we've been seeing almost on a weekly basis with police officers committing violent brutalities on people of color, we're not going to see that anymore because it is not public record. and, in fact, the law
7:41 am
establishes in great detail who can obtain or even view this type of footage and the procedure by which they may do so which is, you know, very burdensome because you first have to make a request to the law enforcement agency that is involved in the case so it's rather self-serving in my humble opinion and then when not if that request gets denied you then have to go to court and seek a court order which again is also extremely burdensome and challenging because you have to be able to prove that there is a compelling public interest in that footage that trumps any type of privacy interest of the vic, the suspect and the police officers that are involved and are on that footage so essentially we're not going to see this type of body cam and dash cam footage like we've been seeing lately almost regularly. >> well, sara, that sets me up to ask you in the context of what's going on every time we stop by the police you should start filming yourself does that mean. >> absol
7:42 am
laws that are popping up in different states that might be the only way that we can protect ourselves and archive this footage. >> yeah, we saw that with diamond reynolds, she doing that and there are five states but you're scratching your head and saying what is the upside on this because you're hearing from so many citizens saying and police departments say they want the body cam to be able to prove one way or the other what really happened. all right, sara, we'll see what happens. thank you. >> seems like there's something to hide when you do things like that. now on to an important medical warning. new research out of the university of florida finds a growy number of healthy weight dulls may have prediabetes and not even know it. dr. richard besser joins us to talk about that and dr. besser, how are you doing, my friend? >> i'm doing all right. >> now, does this go against everything we knew or thought we knew about prediabetes and what did they find? >> this is interesting so prediabetes is a situation where your blood sugar is up but it's not high enough to be called diabetes but you're at risk of

diabetes. and we used to think about this in people who were just overweight. but in the new study they looked at adults that weren't overweight and over time the number with prediabetes is going up. in the late '80s it was about 10% of cuts then in 2012 it was 20% of adults. and while we want everyone to eat right and exercise, if you know you have prediabetes, you're more likely to make those changes to cut down -- >> how do you know? >> you could go to your doctor and ask for a blood test but the cdc has a simple test you can show -- that can show if you're at increased risk. everyone in the big board and you all are home give it a try. if you're a man hold up 1 finger, 0 if you're a woman. if you're over 60 hold up three finger, over 50, hold up two fingers, over 40 hold up one finger. if you're inactive hold up one finger. if type 2 diabetes runs in your family hold up a fick. if you have high blood pressure hold up a finger. okay, now here's the hard one now look at this chart and hold up
7:44 am
the picture that looks most like your shape. okay. now if you're holding -- it's a hard one. holding up five or more fingers you're at increased risk for prediabetes so you want to ask your doctor for a blood test and what things you can do to lower your risk because it doesn't mean you're necessarily going to go on to develop diabetes. >> she just had one finger up. that's it. i had four. how many did you have -- i didn't see. how many did you have, dan? >> hey, i had two. >> wow. >> i was at three. >> one of the keys -- >> i was looking for one of those stick -- >> yeah, i was going to say what dan is trying to say. you have to be honest with yourself look at those stick figures because i was confused with myself. >> with being on that, inactive -- >> i was looking more like -- more like michael's body is the stick figure i was looking for myself and thinking where is that one? >> the reason we have you, dan, is to
7:45 am
problems, how about that. there is a new court ruling that could mean sharing your netflix password is a federal crime? come on here, dan. i mean there are going to be a lot of people charged with this if this is true? >> yeah, this is a lot of people vastly overstating this ruling. basically this is a case where a guy works at a company, goes to start his own company, which will be a competitor and continues to access the computer system of his old company. and what the appeals court said here is that is accessing a computer system, quote, without authorization. so now you've got one judge who didn't agree with the opinion and many others saying, oh, my goodness, you know what this is going to meany it will mean that anyone who shares their password on netflix or hbo go or somewhere else could be charged for accessing a computer system, quote, without authorization. except that's exactly what the court said this opinion does
7:46 am
do, and i think that that's a vast overstatement. i think people are going to be perfectly safe continuing to share their passwords. >> you know we had dan on -- david on our social square who tweeted he shares his password and even posts it on facebook for everybody to use it -- is that extreme or is he okay? >> i mean, look, look, that's a little -- i'm not saying he's going to get charged with a crime. he won't get charged with a crime but if i were them i'd revoke his access. if he's sharing it on facebook, the point is supposed to be you can certainly share it with family members and netflix has come out and said they encourage that, that they're happy for people to be sharing it with family members, et cetera. once you start sharing -- once you start posting it on facebook it seems to me you're crossing another line and keep in mind most of these services limit the number of people who can access it anyway. >> i don't want to go to jail and trying to watch "orange is the new black." i'm joining them in jail. we got to say thank
