8:02 am
but we start with an unwanted development for waterlogged south carolina. it is just what they do not need. another bout of rain hitting the state this morning with 19 dead, thousands without power and rivers jumping their banks, how will they deal with this latest punch? rob is going to have the forecast in just a moment but first let's get it out to abc's phillip mena in georgetown county for us. hi, phillip. >> reporter: paula, good morning. to give you an idea of just how high the black river has risen, take a look at that home behind me. that is a two-story home built on stilts and there are dozens more around here nearly submerged in floodwater. this morning more rain heading to slam south carolina. dangerous and widespread flooding devastating residents. so many, like burt jordan, wondering when this will all be over. >> maybe this is it. there's no way it'll get this high but it kept coming. it kept coming.
8:03 am
>> reporter: as we head to jordan's sister's house to help her retrieve what she could find. we're coming back here to get some of your things. >> the only thing left in there is some of my baby pictures. most of it we moved upstairs before i left because i wanted -- that was important to me. >> reporter: at least 19 people killed from the catastrophic floods. authorities still rescuing people from homes isolated by floodwaters as tens of thousands are left without power and drinking water. >> they are taking across food and medical supplies to the residents that are stranded on the other side. there's about 200 residents plus. >> reporter: washed out roads and hundreds of houses submerged under as much as 20 feet of water. residents urged to evacuate as rising floodwaters begin to flow into already swollen rivers. state and local officials warn of more flooding headed to the area of eastern south carolina. >> don't underestimate the power of water that's headed this way. we're under a 72-hour window where we need to be extremely careful. >> reporter: residents
8:04 am
of the eastern coastal county saying this flooding is historic. >> i've been staying here since all my life since about 1966 and had never seen nothing like this before. >> reporter: with thousands of residents already displaced, more rainfall is on its way leaving many to wonder whether they'll make it. >> i'll say we didn't think it was going to get this bad. nobody did. >> reporter: the university of south carolina was scheduled to host one of its biggest football games of the year today against lsu, but because of the flooding, that game will now be played in baton rouge with all of the proceeds going to help the victims of the flood here in south carolina. dan. >> a lot of people in need, a real mess. phillip, thank you. with more rain on the way, let's get the forecast now with rob. rob, good morning to you. >> certainly not something they need here and this could be heavy at times today. we've got several advisories -- all you see in red, those are the rivers still rising or in flood stage and this additional rainfall will slow that to say the least.
8:05 am
flash flood watch out for 1 or 2 more inches of rainfall. this wave developing along the front that came through the northeast last night. that will increase the rainfall. thank goodness there is not a tropical connection. in the next 24 hours it looks like we could see 1 to 2 inches of rain, maybe more especially columbia and south to charleston. more about the national forecast in a bit. >> thanks, rob. now to the ominous scene breaking overnight in north korea. the government there putting on a show of military might. we're talking missiles, tanks, rocket launchers and thousands of soldiers, and the leader himself, kim jong-un, threatening that north korea is ready to stand up to america. abc's bob woodruff is right there and joins us with more. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning, paula. yeah, some big news this morning and actually this has been a big event, a celebration of actually the 70th anniversary for the, workers party but the thing was that the president, the supreme leader, kim jong-un stood up up here on the balcony and made
8:06 am
comments and said their priority and country is actually to strengthen the power of their military so they can deal with any possible wars in the future especially with the united states. that was a very big point that he wanted to make while these troops were walking and goose stepping up and down followed by the tanks and missiles and they're watching from around the world to see if they will be more powerful, able to travel further, closer to the united states as they have in the past. this is a question being looked at. this was a very impressive event and as usual, the people were just shaking the ground with the weight of their boots. dan. >> bob woodruff right there on the ground in north korea. bob, thank you. we switch gears now to that shark attack in hawaii. the beautiful blue waters there running red as a surfer was attacked. people on the beach teaming up to save his life. we'd like to remind you that shark attacks are rare but this

8:08 am
gash on it but then when we brought him to the beach, i mean, you know, it's gone. it's gone. >> reporter: officials say a paddleboarder came to the surfer's rescue helping him out of the water. and a nearby kayaker towing him to shore where a group of good samaritans jumped into action using a surfboard leash as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding. >> we definitely first off want to commend those people that were quick to action. they did the right thing. >> reporter: medics rush cook to the hospital in critical condition but his cousin saying he was in good spirits before going into surgery. >> i got there and i'm all, what's up. i heard you were fighting with a shark. he was smiling and laughing. he was like, yeah, i got a couple good cracks on him. >> this was the fifth one in hawaii this year. a woman killed while snorkeling off maui this spring. the first fatal shark attack in years. by the way, cook apparently used his bare hands to fight off the shark. >> wow, wow, impressive. kendis, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> thanks, kendis. we want to move to political intrigue surrounding the search
8:09 am
for a new speaker of the house. republicans are scrambling after their top candidate suddenly dropped out of the race. but a familiar name and face has emerged, but so far paul ryan has said he doesn't want the gig but now that prominent republicans are saying he's the only man for the job, could ryan be changing his mind? abc's devin dwyer with answers for us this morning from capitol hill. >> reporter: good morning, the stakes in this drama could not be higher. in just a few weeks the government is set to max out its credit limit and run out of money. the speaker of the house at the center of it all and republicans this morning are searching for a new one. >> and the house will be in order. >> reporter: it's one of the most powerful jobs in politics that nobody seems to want. >> you want the job? >> no. >> does anybody? >> we'll find out. >> reporter: republicans plunged into chaos over the speaker of their house not once but twice in two weeks. first it was john boehner suddenly calling it quits then his heir apparent, kevin
8:10 am
mccarthy, abruptly stepping aside. >> i think i shocked some of you, huh? >> reporter: this morning a search for a speaker has become desperate. >> can't go on like this where one small group is allowed to hijack the entire house. >> reporter: but one man has emerged as a potential savior. >> i'm a huge fan of paul ryan. >> he would be an amazing speaker. >> i did everything except carry his gym bag trying to get him to do it. >> reporter: ryan is the iron pumping cover boy and former vice presidential nominee. he insists he doesn't want the job but pressure is building. his former running mate mitt romney wants him to get into the race for speaker. there's even a new twitter account tracking his decision. is paul ryan speaker yet? not quite yet. as he makes up his mind he's only talking about his hometown team, the green bay packers. >> packers are at home and they're going to beat the rams and cover the spread so -- >> where will you be watching the game? >> at home. >> reporter: ryan would be spending much less time at home if he did get in the race and become speaker. that's a top concern this
8:11 am
morning he's talking over at home with his wife and three young children. paula and dan. >> devin, thank you. there is another political cliffhanger this morning. this one involves the democrats and the race for president. it's "your voice, your vote" and joe biden is really running out of time to decide whether to throw his hat in the ring. the veep's top aides just held a major meeting with democratic party leaders, the latest clue that biden may actually be on the cusp of a historic leap here and abc's david wright is here with the latest. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. not since hamlet has so much drama hung on one man making up his mind so slowly. to run or not to run, that's the question the vice president is still pondering this week back home in wilmington, delaware. but his aides are doing everything to keep his options open. the presidential race may be well into act 2 -- >> vice president joseph biden. >> reporter: -- but joe biden still can't decide whether he'll take the stage. >> hello. >> reporter: for weeks now he's been openly speculating.
8:12 am
>> people who aren't willing to risk failing never succeed. >> reporter: will he or won't he run? [ cheers and applause ] the fact that we're still asking the question threatens to overshadow the candidates who have already declared, especially front-runner hillary clinton. >> it absolutely impacts hillary clinton the most. >> reporter: abc news has learned this past week biden's aides met with officials from the democratic national committee. the purpose, to learn about upcoming filing deadlines to get his name on the ballots in different states. the first of those deadlines comes up in less than a month, alabama, november 6th. by that date he'd have to pay $2500 and submit 500 signatures in order to qualify for the democratic primary. helping candidates figure out all the requirements is part of the dnc's job. but is biden a candidate? even though he's not yet decided, the polls show him doing pretty well. >> when you look at the vice
8:13 am
president's ratings, he's the most popular potential candidate on both sides right now, more popular than hillary clinton and more popular than any other republican in this race in the general election. >> reporter: ideally he'd make up his mind by tuesday's democratic debate. if he doesn't, the stage might as well have one extra podium standing empty waiting for him. obviously this is a tough decision for biden especially given the year that he had. people are giving him some slack, but the process has a timetable, and he's got to make up his mind soon. >> deadlines are deadlines. leave it to david wright to class up the joint by bringing up shakespeare, to run or not to run. >> hamlet. >> i love it. >> i avoided something is rotten in the state of delaware, though. >> oh. actually you really didn't avoid it because you just said it. >> to do news or not to do news, i think ron has the answer. right? >> we will do that. we'll begin with breaking news from the turkish capital of ankara, two blasts, two
