our families over there. >> celebrities hoping to hear from loved ones. and we're there for the victories in the fight to save lives. close call. look at this, a small plane crash lands at a neighborhood in california narrowly missing homes. the passengers who walked away. >> basically parallel parked the [mute] plane. lucky to be alive. drone danger, the collision with a blackhawk helicopter in new york city. the drone apparently flying higher than legally allowed. the new concerns about life and risk this morning. good morning, everybody. happy sundaaturday. let's look at drone footage out of puerto rico. they're expecting an imminent failure here which could affect 70,000 people. we'll have the latest from the scene. >> those people told to get to higher ground as soons
7:02 am
possible. we start with another breaking story. an earthquake in north korea. it comes in the middle of an escalating war of words between president trump and north korean leader, kim jong-un. >> in fact, the president fired off his latest verbal salvos at a speech overnight in balabama. we have team coverage and we start with the latest on that earthquake. >> jennifer eccleston is in london. good morning. >> reporter: chinese media are reporting a 3.2 magnitude earthquake in north korea. the last time an earthquake was registered in north korea it was the result of a nuclear test. no word from pyongyang about a possible detonation but tensions have been escalating after a war of words between the united states and north korea about its nuclear ambitions. that rhetoric following the detonation of a suspected high joe dren bomb on september 3.
7:03 am
that blast registered a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. all of those tests have been underground. this morning the south koreans are confirming a small quake with some news reports suggesting the tremor was a natural occurrence. but those reports also indicating today's quake is near that september explosion. and just now the usga also saying it was near that explosion but it did not confirm whether it was a blast or a normal seismic event. this follows the north korea's foreign minister threat to test a hydrogen bomb over the pacific oe ocean and a direct threat from kim jong-un to take the highest action against the united states. dan and paula? >> tensions are high this morning. jennifer e thanks for your reporting from london this morning. north korea was clearly on president trump's mind as we spoke overnight in alabama. he was there to campaign on
7:04 am
luther strange who is facing a tough challenge from a fellow republican. the election is days away. the president is back in new jersey and that's where we find abc's stephanie ramos. >> reporter: last night president trump on stage in alabama hyping up his accomplishments, jumping from topic to topic, including health care and north korea's leader. the president confident that kim jong-un was watching. and then this morning president trump is up and at 'em, tweeting about health care, posting, john mccain never had any intention of voting for this bill which his governor loves. he campaigned on repeal and replace. let arizona down. overnight the president taking the stage in huntsville, alabama. >> i love this state and i love the people of this state. >> reporter: rallying for embattled senate candidate luther strange. trump going after everything from north korea, even the nfl, to
7:05 am
the president still vowing to get rid of obamacare. >> we're going to win. it's going to be gone. >> reporter: this morning the gop health care bill is one vote away from failing, with senator john mccain shooting it down again, saying in a statement friday, he cannot in good conscience vote for the latest republican plan. he says a bill of this impact requires a bipartisan approach. it was just a couple of months ago when mccain walked on the senate floor and gave a thumbs down during a vote to repeal obamacare. the president telling the alabama crowd he was shocked. >> totally unexpected thing, terrible. >> reporter: and trump again using a nickname to call out north korea's leader, kim jong-un. ramping up insults toward the dictator. >> rocket man should have been handled a long time ago. >> reporter: north korea's leader kim jong-un says trump is mentally
7:06 am
old. during that hour and a half speech president trump even urged the nfl to fire players who protest racial and social injustices during the playing of the national anthem, even suggesting that punishments for hard hits are ruining the game. then there's russia, the president continuing to claim that the russian tie to him is a hoax despite the deepening investigation that is narrowed in on trump's closest connections. dan, paula. >> newsy speech overnight and a newsy morning as he continues to tweet. stephanie, thank you. for more let's go to washington and abc news political commentator cokie roberts. cokie, good morning. >> hi, how are you guys? >> great now that you're here. let me start with north korea where we're dealing with this miystifying news about the earthquake. as you know president trump has called the north korean leader rocket man and a mad man. is this the right approach? >> as
7:07 am
harmless and kim jong-un had all of us looking up the word dotard because that's what he called president trump. it turns out to mean senile old man or something along those lines. the fact is that if the president is correct and if the leader of korea is a mad man, then provoking him is probably not the smartest thing to do. >> let's talk about health care, shift gears a little bit, cokie. once again the health care bill is on life support. the president says he's not giving up, but do you have confidence that he's going to be able to sway crucial republican votes to get that done? he just tweeted, i know rand paul and i think he might find a way to get there for the good of the party. do you think he sidewalk somecaf those votes? >> he might be if he puts some sweeteners in that bill. this is a bill that's opposed by the american pediatric
7:08 am
is against it, the insurance companies are against it. so the only reason that it would pass is that republicans are saying, well, we promised we would do it so we'll do it. whether that gets it all the way through and to a presidential signature is a very, very big if. >> a long way to go here. let's sneak in a question about what the president was doing in alabama overnight. he was there because he's thrown his weight behind incumbent senator luther strange. strange is facing a pretty tough challenge from a fellow republican. if strange loses, what does that say about trump's influence? >> it says that trump is more important than trump because actually strange's opponent, roy moore, is really much more appealing to trump voters. now, 80% of the republicans in alabama have a favorable impression of donald trump. so it's possible that he can bring luther strange over the top. but it's
7:09 am
him to get into and to get into on that side, and he said that last night in that long, rambling speech. he did say maybe i made a mistake. he was almost like he was talking to himself because he knows that moore is really much more in his mold, and the president's own cabinet member, ben carson, has been campaigning for moore. sarah palin has been campaigning for moore. and so i think the president's a little bit conflicted there, but he had a great big crowd there in huntsville and of course he always loves that. >> everybody is interested to see how that race shakes out in alabama. cokie, thanks for your insight and analysis this morning. we want to move now to the latest on that dire situation in puerto rico where a dam could collapse at any moment putting 70,000 people in harm's way. >> this is a serious situation and compounding the misery, the entire island, no power. abc's victor oquendo is right there. >> reporter: good morning. th

devastating and deadly. tens of thousands of people are being told to get out. here in san juan, the winds created all this damage. a new imminent threat forcing 70,000 people in puerto rico to evacuate their homes immediately. a crack discovered in a dam, its surrounding area pummelled by 15 inches of rain. officials warning those in the area to move to higher ground, fearing it could collapse at any moment. this crises as desperate cries for help continue across the island. with communication nearly impossible -- >> i haven't spoken to anyone since midnight on tuesday. >> reporter: hundreds of cars pulling over on a highway, one of the only places with cell services. even stars like jennifer lopez -- >> we haven't been able to hear from our families. >> reporter: ricky martin. >> donate whatever you can. >> reporter: and marc anthony --

homeworker and her struggle to help the elderly patients in her care. >> reporter: day four since the hurricane hit and conditions haven't changed that much. there's still damage littering this city and people are just trying to survive, especially those that are giving care to folks that are most in need. in the wake of hurricane maria's destruction across the island of puerto rico, finally a moment of happiness for at least one resident. the generator powering the nursing home where caregiver maria ortiz has struggled to keep her elderly patients alive, it's back up and running again. unfortunately, the pure feeling of jubilation will only last so long. >> about how long does a tank last? >> 8 hours. >> reporter: it's a temporary fix to a major problem. when we first met maria and the care center residents two days ago, we found them living in
7:13 am
clinging to life. the anguish and fear in maria's voice was undeniable. >> we can't let them die. we can't let them die. >> reporter: maria is one of the lucky ones. with communication all but gone on most of the island, she was able to reconnect with her mother. and we were there during the emotional reunion. even though she's up against unimaginable odds, maria says she's not giving up any time soon. >> if i can do something and i can get help now before something happens, i want to do what i have to do, you know? >> reporter: and while the fuel in that generator is likely to run out today, we have seen a visible increase in military personnel and fema staff, so the flow of life-saving supplies should be ramping up today. dan, paula. >> good to hear that the supplies are getting right to where people need it most. rob, thank you. we're going to check in with rob in a few minutes to get the latest track on
7:14 am
we turn to a close call from an army blackhawk helicopter. >> it was flying security missions here in new york city when it was hit by a drone. abc's erielle reshef is on that story. >> reporter: that collision happened over a residential neighborhood in staten island, believed to be the first between an aircraft and a civilian drone. the pilot was forced to land at a new jersey airport after some tense moments in the sky. this morning the u.s. army is investigating how a drone collided with this blackhawk helicopter in new york city. this damage to the chopper's blade and window after the drone slammed into it at approximately 500 feet around 8:00 p.m. thursday night. in the united states it's against the law for private drone pilots to fly at an altitude greater than 400 feet. the pilot was able to land the aircraft safely. this isn't the first close call in the sky between a drone and a helicopter.
7:15 am
collision with a drone. >> reporter: back in august, massachusetts state police reported a drone came within 100 feet of one of its choppers. >> if people follow the instructions for all the rules, it is an absolutely avoidable scenario. >> reporter: in june a charlotte police pilot said a drone inched towards this helicopter while flying over the city. >> had the drone struck the helicopter at that speed, velocity, through the windshield, it could have been a catastrophic event. >> reporter: now, the army is investigating this latest incident and trying to find the drone pilot. the helicopter is awaiting repairs. most of the damage though was done to the drone itself so kind of lucky in this situation. >> absolutely. >> trying to figure out what was flying the drone. >> raises a lot of questions about drone safety going forward. thank you. we turn to the life or death struggle in mexico city where five days after that earthquake rescue crews are desperately digging through the rubble. >> matt gutman is
