the suspect seen on surveillance footage decked out in s.w.a.t. team gear. an all-out search for the killer right now. and an abc news exclusive. the baseball player who put family first, walking away from a multimillion-dollar career after he was asked to stop bringing his son to work every day, now speaking out for the first time on camera. >> i haven't lost an ounce of sleep. i mean, i have zero regrets. >> adam laroche revealing the real reason for his retirement and what his son drake thinks about his decision. only on "gma." and we do say good morning, america, on this tuesday morning. big day in the race for president. the polls are open right now in new york. >> let's take a look at some of the polling places. the candidates crisscrossing the street -- the state right now. there's hillary clinton and donald trump. donald trump in manhattan. that synagogue in manhattan right there.
both candidates making some headlines overnight. donald trump getting a little flack for a slip he made on 9/11 and hillary clinton under pressure from sanders in a new poll. >> so we'll have the latest on all that coming up. but first, we want to get to that record-breaking deadly flooding in houston. we're hearing from the reporter behind that dramatic rescue. more are under way right now. abc's rob marciano has the latest and joins us this morning from houston. good morning, rob. >> good morning, robin. the last 24 hours dramatic life-threatening scenes unfolding across houston after those torrential rains came down. it rose 25 feet in just a few hours, engulfing much of this city. yesterday, it was chaotic. >> the water is rushing by them right now. >> reporter: torrential rains terrorizing much of texas. this couple trying to escape the floodwaters, their boat overturned. >> thank god we made it. >> reporter: flash flooding leading to a massive number of first responders rescuing people trapped in floodwaters.
>> please remember the easy phrase -- turn around, don't drown. stay out of the rising water. >> reporter: the governor declaring a state of emergency in the eight counties after 240 billion gallons of rainfall drenched the houston area. neighbors coming together at this apartment complex carrying babies to safety. some even using refrigerators as rafts. hundreds of children rescued from the rising waters. >> they had water up to their chest. >> reporter: tractor trailers making waves and sending this abandoned car floating, this semi engulfed in rushing water. abc news ktrk reporter covering the historic floods becoming part of the story. >> what should i do? >> swim. come here, sir. come here. >> thank you. >> reporter: moments later that car going under. >> i had no idea it would go so deep. >> these underpasses can just be
filled with water and turn into a deadly situation. >> reporter: from this drone footage the devastation can be seen for miles. more than a thousand homes flooded. cars swept off the roads. and watch this dramatic scene. a young woman hanging on to the mane of a horse trying to get him to dry ground, the horse rearing and thrashing after hitting a submerged fence but eventually making it to dry land. the headline from "the houston chronicle" in a flash. it was in a flash, flash flood watches out for this area but no one expected a foot of rain in less than 12 hours and northwest of town, 17 inches of rain falling. waters still very high there. more rain to come. george. >> boy, no relief in sight, okay, rob, thanks very much. the race for the white house now and polls open in new york. the home state of both front-runners. on the democratic side hillary clinton favored to win. but the latest national polls show bernie sanders pulling close to even and abc's cecilia vega is here with the latest.
good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. clinton does still hold a strong lead in the polls here in new york but the pressure is definitely on. this has been the nastiest leg of this campaign so far, a fight over who is the real new yorker, a must win for both sides and it all comes to a head today. in his final empire state pitch -- >> you all look beautiful. [ cheers and applause ] and you all look like you want a political revolution. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: bernie sanders taking his revolution to the masses, thousands turning out for his last new york rally. >> i say to corporate america, get nervous if bernie sanders is elected president. >> reporter: but while sanders took his message to the streets -- >> hello. >> reporter: -- hillary clinton took her opponent to task. >> i couldn't believe it when senator sanders said the parents
of the sandy hook children did not deserve their day in court. >> reporter: hitting her rival across the aisle, too, in this radio interview. >> does donald trump scare you? >> i think he's the donkey of the decade. >> reporter: clinton taking a sweeter approach on the campaign trail. >> that's a victory. i was going to take it to go but it was like in front of me and i had to start eating it. >> the calorie count. >> oh, come on. >> reporter: and laughing it off on "colbert." >> it's awkward eating in front of the press. >> you want to use a fork. >> yes, that's always good to use a fork. >> yeah. >> you want to take off just a little bit off the top right here, and then just eat as much as you want. >> reporter: she needs to avoid an embarrassing loss in her adopted home state and if this slip-up is any indication she's already hoping to move on. >> i am hoping to do really well tomorrow, i'm hoping to wrap up the democratic nomination. >> reporter: and clinton quickly
added that she did not want to give the wrong impression and she is taking nothing for granted, robin, but perhaps a very telling slip-up. >> perhaps. all right, cecilia, thank you. now to the republicans, donald trump looking to bounce back with a huge win here in new york after a recent string of losses to ted cruz. abc's tom llamas is at the polling location where trump is casting his vote today. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. sometime soon we're expecting donald trump to walk into this room, pick up a ballot and do something he's going to take great pleasure in, walk right into that booth and vote for donald trump. you know, when he announced his candidacy few thought he would make it this far and almost no one thought now he'd be a front-runner. on this election day, donald trump expects only one thing, loyalty. >> no new yorker can vote for ted cruz and no new yorker can vote for kasich. >> reporter: trump promising supporters a win in new york puts him on the path to a showdown in november against
hillary clinton. >> we're going to win and we're going to beat crooked hillary so badly that your heads will spin. >> reporter: but still in the way, senator ted cruz. >> maryland is a battleground. >> reporter: he's moved on from new york where trump is expected to shut him out and slow down cruz's momentum. after the texas senator strategically rounded up delegates in states not holding primaries. i asked trump about cruz's delegate strategy. is he the real dealmaker right now behind the scenes? >> no, i'm leading by millions of votes and by 200 delegates. no, we're doing really well. >> reporter: part of trump's success in new york turning around cruz's attacks on new york values, trump invoking the response to 9/11 as real new york values. but overnight, trump trying to make that point but mistakenly invoking a convenience store. >> and i watched our police and our firemen down on 7-eleven -- down at the world trade center.
>> reporter: trump later correcting himself but the 7-eleven flub going viral. all right, and now we've also understood that, as he's on the cusp of his biggest victory yet, donald trump's campaign is hitting the reset button. new staffers are being brought in led by paul manafort and his field director has told abc news that he is resigning. it's unclear if more changes are on the way. george. >> yeah, that could just be the beginning. thanks, tom. let's talk about it with matthew dowd right here. victory for donald trump here in new york, not in doubt but he needs close to a clean sweep. >> yeah, he's got to be careful not to be slurpee, i mean sloppy, in the course of this. no, he needs an 8 in front of his number, he needs at least 80-something delegates in this state to go forward and he still has as you know the possibility of clinching the nomination before july. i think really he can't get it by june 7th but he needs to start that process tonight with a large victory that, as i say,
needs to have it be in the 80s on the number of delegates. >> and jon karl, he has a good setup. next week in the northeast. after that the calendar gets tougher and i was struck by something mitt romney said yesterday repeating his call either ted cruz or john kasich has to get out of the race if you want to block trump. >> yeah, and i think mitt romney is exactly wrong on this, by the way, because the only way to defeat trump is to keep him from getting 1237 by the end of the process. so, when you have more opponents it's harder for trump to do that. if trump gets a head-to-head race against ted cruz, his victories will be bigger. so trump needs kasich to get out of the race. >> on the democratic side you slowed that slip from hillary clinton. it betrays a big confidence right now in the clinton camp. they really want to pivot after tonight. >> oh, they certainly do. you're already sort of starting to see her do that. her narrative throughout new york has been trump,
trump, trump, but privately they're saying the margins will be much closer tonight than the polls show her going in so they're bracing for that. we did the math. if bernie sanders loses by ten points tonight he needs to win 80% of the remaining delegates to clinch this nomination. if he doesn't win tonight, the big question is what happens next? it will be impossible. >> and just real quickly, she does need that because this is taking a toll on her overall favorability. >> when a candidate slips they are accidentally telling the truth. which she did last night. i think they're very frustrated, the campaign is, they thought they'd put it away but she needs a victory tonight for her to go forward. >> thank you all very much and hillary clinton joins us live thursday with our coffee with the candidates town hall to answer your questions. robin. all right, george, now to that big headline overseas. rescuers in a race against time to find survivors after that devastating earthquake in ecuador killed hundreds. this drone footage showing the damage. abc's linzie janis is on the scene now for us. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we just arrived in this coastal town nearest to the quake's epicenter.
workers have started sifting through the rubble once again this morning. police telling me these buildings are tourists hotels. they believe dozens of people are still trapped inside. they say it's been so difficult to get here, the search for survivors really only began a day ago. crews working through the night searching for survivors, very deep under the rubble of ecuador's 7.8 magnitude quake. more than 400 killed. among them, at least one american. but amid the devastation, there is hope. this dramatic footage capturing the moment emergency workers rescued three people from beneath this collapsed shopping center. one seen waving his hand from underneath the debris trapped for 32 hours. the man emerging head first out of a 28-inch hole drilled through the concrete. the husband of one of the women crying out -- "i felt she was alive."
in another hard-hit area rescue crews also saving this dog. drone video revealing the extent of the destruction. buildings leaning, entire floors crushed. other structures flattened. thousands of survivors now homeless, sleeping in makeshift shelters. overnight, we found this family resting in front of their destroyed home right near the quake's epicenter and earlier in the day katarina telling us she and her two young children were not at home when their apartment building was flattened. a worker only able to recover a few of her baby daughter's shoes. you don't even have a pair here. american teacher brian bayer was inside this apartment building when the quake struck. ceilings caving in and concrete crumbling. >> the entire building was jumping up and down. absolutely traumatized.
>> reporter: and here you can see, people's belongings. clothes tangled in the twisted metal. the death toll is over 400 and it's expected to rise. there are hundreds feared dead in this town alone. robin. >> that's good to know, all right, linzie, thank you very much. those scenes are devastating. >> they certainly are. move on now to a hunt under way in texas right now for this man caught on security cameras wearing tactical gear after a mother of three was murdered in a small town church. abc's kayna whitworth has the latest. >> reporter: overnight, a desperate manhunt for the person seen in this chilling surveillance video. police believe the suspect dressed in head-to-toe tactical gear is responsible for the death of 45-year-old missy bevers, a beloved fitness instructor and mother of three. authorities say she was last seen around 4:00 a.m. monday morning carrying equipment for a boot camp class into this texas church. students from her 5 a.m. class discovering her body. >> it certainly is a strange
occurrence at this time of morning. >> reporter: police releasing this surveillance video overnight, timestamped 3:58 a.m., showing the suspect roaming the halls of the church. they say the building shows signs of forced entry. but church officials have not reported anything missing. police now investigating if bevers was just in the wrong place in the wrong time. bevers leaves behind three young girls. >> my wife was a very -- she was very passionate about transforming people's lives physically and mentally. >> reporter: overnight her community remembering her. >> she's definitely in heaven. she was an angel. >> reporter: for "good morning america," kayna whitworth, abc news, los angeles. >> that's a tough one. let's go to amy now for today's other top stories, starting with a major attack in afghanistan. >> that's right, the taliban claiming responsibility for a massive explosion in kabul. at least 28 people are dead. more than 320 others injured after a suicide car bombing near the presidential palace. this comes just days after the taliban announced their spring
offensive. well, back here at home, police say it appears the body of a missing priest has been found in georgia. father rene robert of st. augustine, florida, had not been seen for more than a week. a man with a long criminal history is already in custody expected now to face murder charges. the reverend had been trying to help him. on wall street stocks this morning, stocks opening at their highest level in nine months beginning above 18,000. that is a 15% increase since february. the rally has been driven by energy and health care stocks. and beloved actress doris roberts has died. her career spanned six decades but she was best known as that meddling mother on "everybody loves raymond." roberts won five emmys, she was also an outspoken critic of age discrimination in hollywood. doris roberts was 90 years old. more than three dozen movies and among them one of my favorites "christmas vacation." >> that's a classic. >> a good one. >> she was wonderful.
>> she'll be missed. >> she'll be missed. total switch up here, okay. a showdown, if you will, at a hockey game, the flyers, philadelphia, tried to do a nice thing honoring their founder ed snider who died last week by taping glow-in-the-dark bracelets to every chair for a light show. when the team started to lose, the plan backfired. as the philadelphia flyers fell behind the washington capitals in their playoff game -- >> score. >> reporter: the philly fans decided to take matters into their own hands. >> they blend in with the ice. any of these players could get hurt, silly. >> reporter: those light-up bracelets which were placed on every seat before the game quickly came raining down on the ice and the players. >> alex ovechkin and wayne simmonds motion up to the crowd who were throwing debris on to the ice. >> reporter: the game announcer wasting no time admonishing the crowd. >> okay, ladies and gentlemen, hold those wristbands in your hands. show some class.
this is philly. >> reporter: but perhaps this fan summed it up best. >> no! >> reporter: after this player checked into the boards head first. he was hit again but this time but a flying bracelet. the team at the end of their rope. >> okay, those of you that have been throwing them, you've done it, two-minute bench penalty to the flyers for delay of game. way to go. >> and now the flyers have picked up a penalty for delay of game, thanks to their fans. >> all that and the flyers lost. >> all those philadelphia fans. okay. all right. thanks so much, lara. let's go back to rob now in houston. rob. >> robin, more rain on the way. that stalled system, flash flood watches have been extended through the houston area through tomorrow. posted across here and wichita falls and in through parts of oklahoma for this rain that's about to come. time now for your tuesday trivia brought to you by amazon prime.

or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for 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. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. good morning. it's 7:24. the warriors are going to see how steph curry's injured ankle responds before deciding he's going to play in game three in houston on thursday. curry, as you know, sat out last night.

let me throw up the day planner today. you can see, it's going to be warm away from coast, 60s there, mid-70s to low 80s, just not as hot as yesterday. cooling chance for friday. our best chance of rain too. >> coming up, the baseball star who walked away from a $13 million contract, choosing family over fortune. he's speaking next for the first time on "gma." we're going to have another update in about 30 minutes and always on our news app. don't forget, join us every weekday from

he calls it like he sees it. there was a slip-up. everybody is talking about it this morning, including us, and robin, you were trying to explain how it all happened. we're going to get to that. >> we will. but first this half hour an abc news exclusive with the baseball player who sparked a firestorm retiring when his team asked him to stop bringing his son to the ballpark every day. adam laroche is now opening up about his decision speaking with our t.j. holmes. good morning, t.j. >> robin, six months, that's all he had to do was work another six months and he'd pocket $13 million, but he said keep your money. i'm going to take my ball and my son and go home. he immediately became the poster child for family first but also the poster child for absurdity. now, listen to him explain that absurd decision and why it was an easy one. when the chicago white sox asked adam laroche to stop bringing his son drake to the clubhouse he told them he'd rather walk away from the sport he loves and his $13 million salary. >> i haven't lost an ounce of sleep. i mean, i have zero regrets.
>> reporter: laroche took his son drake to work with him pretty much every day for the past five seasons. drake, now 14, a constant companion in the clubhouse, he did chores for other players and even had a locker next to his dad's. have you ever heard from anyone who had an issue with drake being with you as much as he was? >> no, not that i can remember. >> reporter: but in early march, laroche says he was approached by the team executive vice president kenny williams who initially asked had him to dial back drake's presence in the clubhouse but then told him not to bring drake around at all. >> he just said, enough is enough, i don't want to see your son around here anymore. >> reporter: after that heated conversation when did retiring start swirling around in your mind? >> probably 20 minutes later. >> reporter: a few days later, laroche announced his decision to retire, sparking a public debate about kids in the workplace. >> i also applaud adam laroche. >> i don't care if you're a dad and you work at a bank, every
day is too much. >> reporter: and the logic of leaving so much money on the table. how much was money a factor when you were sitting down and making the decision? >> not a huge one. >> but, adam, 13 million is 13 million for six months of work. >> but i learned a long time ago no matter how much we have, it's never enough. >> is it fair to say you don't need the money? >> who doesn't need 13 million? >> apparently you. >> you know what i'm saying but i mean in the world, like it's -- i get that it's an absurd amount of money. >> but have you had that moment at least where you stopped and thought to yourself what the hell was i thinking? >> i haven't yet but it's still fresh. >> reporter: and as is often the case drake wasn't far from his dad's side, even during our interview. what has been the highlight going to the clubhouse every day? >> hanging out with the guys, you know, they're awesome. >> what was your role? what was your even job? >> i cleaned shoes most of the time. so i just did a little bit of everything. >> he was doing more work than i
was. i just had to go play a game. he actually had to work. >> reporter: laroche calls drake his best friend and, yes, he enjoyed spending time with him but a clubhouse provided better life lessons than any school could. >> the privilege of having my son there, he gets to grow up and he gets to hopefully learn from me and my screwups and good decisions. >> reporter: laroche says the dispute over his son wasn't the only reason for his retirement. he spent ten days under cover in the red light districts of southeast asia last year working with a nonprofit organization to help victims of sex trafficking. he's been haunted by what he saw. >> i think having my own kid -- having two kids of my own, especially a 12-year-old daughter, it's impossible not to picture, man, what if this is my daughter. >> baseball wasn't as important after that trip? >> it wasn't at all. >> reporter: laroche says he wants to continue that work in the future. for now he's enjoying some time with his family at peace with the decision to quit baseball. >> one of the things i probably
thought the longest on was making sure that if i did this, that he would never feel like this was on his shoulders. i think he knows deep down that baseball was never like my life or my world or everything to me. you know, there's a lot more to life. >> all right, and hearing that people's -- hear the whole story and hearing it from him, and, george, something that jumped out at you. the first thing he asked the white sox, is it okay if my son comes -- >> he had a deal. >> he had that agreement but it was a handshake, wasn't in some contract, right? so maybe in practice once the white sox saw it, oh, didn't know it was going to be like this, this really is a lot of ways didn't have to happen. just a couple of people, grown men sit down and work it out. we probably didn't have to be here. >> but, you know, the thing is he's at peace with his decision. >> completely. >> it's his decision.
very comfortable with it so more power to him. >> the whole interview, what's wrong with you, what's wrong with you? >> i love how he said, yeah, $13 million even for him, yeah, that's a lot of money. he gets it. >> that's coming from a rich guy already so 13 million, different thank me. >> family first at the end of the day. family first. thank you, t.j. great job. i want to switch gears now to a survivor of that recent massacre in michigan when an uber driver went on a deadly shooting spree, the victim's quick thinking saved lives and she is speaking out now. abc's alex perez has her story. >> reporter: she came face-to-face with the uber driver accused of a shooting rampage that left six dead and, this morning, tiana carruthers is speaking out about that horrifying night in february. >> i wake up and i'm like, i'm thinking it's all a dream but when i wake up reality hits. >> reporter: the reality is that she is lucky to be alive, shot four times, one bullet piercing her liver. >> it's a struggle. >> reporter: she says she saw suspect jason dalton's vehicle pull up at her apartment complex near kalamazoo within seconds bullets were flying. >> somebody shot, five shots.
she's on the ground. the car sped off. >> reporter: as the gunman fired she yelled out to her 7-year-old daughter and other children playing nearby to get to safety. so many people are proud of you for being able to think in that second and tell them, get to safety. >> something just told me to tell the children to run and, you know, just being up here, you just go off those instincts. >> reporter: thanks to her instinct, the children all escaping unharmed. >> i hurt. i do hurt but let's be honest, do you really think a child could take four bullets or maybe even one? >> reporter: carruthers has spent the last eight weeks in extensive rehab but is now back home. did this make you stronger in ways you didn't know? >> i didn't think that i could get any stronger but god has really been here for me. >> reporter: for "good morning america," alex perez, abc news,
kalamazoo, michigan. >> what strong woman. >> she summed it up well. >> glad she's back home. coming up, i've often wondered about this. the couple that says "love it or list it" made them hate it. why they are suing over a home renovation. and in our next hour, the 20-year-old saying her parents should be prosecuted after they refused to take her to doctors because of their faith.

big coat tv tells abc news that we believe that this claim is in no way supported by any of the facts of the case. >> we decided to -- >> list it. >> reporter: their episode ends with the couple ready to move on but now seven months later they say they still haven't put it on the market. more work still needs to be done. the couple also complains the final work was a scaled down version of the design they were initially presented. abc reached out to hgtv for comment, they have not yet responded but, george, i think what this couple learned next time they have to go with lara spencer. >> thank you, linsey. >> nice plug right there. >> i'm going to get to the bottom of that. >> thank you, linsey. coming up, boston strong. tom brady is calling this marathon runner his inspiration. we have what the president is saying about her this morning. his morning. renews from within... plumping surface cells for a dramatic transformation without the need for fillers. your concert tee might show your age... your skin never will.

>> reporter: mariah's parents are practicing fundamentalist mormons who believe medical issues can be treated through faith and prayer and they refused to take mariah to doctors. >> when i tried to bring it up they said don't talk about it, let's sweep it under the rug. it's not even true. >> reporter: emily walton, mariah's older sister, regrets not trying harder to intervene. >> i really regret at that point not just taking mariah to the emergency room. that's terrible. i feel terrible about that. >> reporter: mariah grew up in idaho, 1 of 32 states that provides a religious defense against potential crimes, specifically against children including neglect, endangerment and abuse. >> my parents do deserve to be prosecuted. it's unfair of my parents to just throw me into this situation and my sister has had to support me. >> kids who are in need of medical care can still make a report to child protective services, to other mandatory reporters in order to force parents to provide them with medical care. >> reporter: mariah and her sister were recently part of a
panel discussion about the issue at the idaho state capital. both now hoping to lift the exemptions currently in place. >> i hope to accomplish getting this law repealed so people like me will not have to suffer anymore. >> mariah's best hope now is for a heart/lung transplant, a highly complicated and risky surgery but it's her only chance for a future life. in the meantime, she gets support, emotional and financial, from her siblings. she's one of ten kids. that's her family right now, just her siblings because she needs a lifeline. >> so if she had that procedure when she was younger -- >> her parents are not in her life anymore -- >> she's estranged from her parents and she's very angry because she feels like that she was basically sacrificed because of their religious beliefs which is why she wants to have this law overturned so that parents can be held accountable. we should say we reached out to the waltons for comment and we did not hear back. >> to hear from her older sister to feel that she could have done more but she was a child herself

was len. >> reporter: nyle still landing on the top of the leaderboard. for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> big night. let's talk about it all with drew lachey, the winner of "dancing with the stars" season 2. he joins us now from cincinnati. drew, thanks for coming in this morning. can you explain what happened with those scores, the 10s? >> yeah, when you're a judge or a guest judge on the show they tell you right off the bat, as soon as you're done watching the performance, you have to write down your score and you send it down to the end of the table to a producer. whatever you write down is the score that is registered. it doesn't matter what -- you could hold up a 1, 10, 50, it doesn't matter. whatever score you pass down to the end of the table is what they score them at. >> so they thought they could change it but apparently they couldn't. did you have a favorite dance of the night, drew? >> yeah, i mean, as much as i hate to admit it, i agree with the judges, i think nyle's waltz was beautiful. i mean, his lines were great. his footwork was great and the emotion that came through that dance, and when you put on top
of that the fact that he can't hear, it just makes it that much more unbelievable. >> yeah, and it's interesting to see some of them thought it was almost an advantage that he couldn't hear, felt everything with his body but how about ginger? >> i mean, honestly, i've been a fan of ginger's for awhile but last night when she switched partners, and mark is a very creative choreographer and a fantastic dancer, to switch up and still come out with that charisma, that dance was very fast, the footwork very complicated. she did a lift which i don't know how she got away with. i don't know. but, you know, i thought she did a fantastic job and the fact she has val as her regular partner, i see her going a long way in the competition. >> oh, we do, too, and the judges were very kind and applauding ginger last night, however, len and maks not so much with a lot of the other contestants. they were really tough last night. >> they were, and it's funny because maks and len have always had this kind of -- this tension between the two of them.
to see them agreeing so much was actually a little surreal. but, you know, i like to compare it to like a negativity sandwich. you got carrie ann and bruno on the ends and then you had just like this negativity cream filling in the middle. this negativity sandwich. >> sour filling. yes, i agree. >> so how do you handicap it going forward? >> well, i think wanya will rebound from this week. i think he's going to be in the finals. i think nyle will make it to the finals, and i think ginger will be in the finals, as well. so it's -- once you get to the finals, who knows what's going to happen but i see those three making it there. >> all right, you won season two and then you came back to dance in the all-star season. what is your advice to the contestants going forward? >> if i could lend any advice, it's to tune out everything else. just focus on what you can do on the dance floor and have fun. it's very easy to get caught up into winning or what the judges expect and all that stuff, just have fun because that comes through.
i mean, ginger's performance last night was a perfect example. she was smiling. she was beaming the whole time and that makes you just love the performance that much more so to the contestants, enjoy yourself, have a good time. don't pay attention to all the other nonsense. >> forget those judges. >> drew should become a dance whisperer. you're good at this. >> they don't matter anyway. it's america that matters. >> thank you so much. >> thank you, drew. that was great. of course, "dancing with the stars" monday night 8:00 eastern, 7:00 central right here on abc. now let's go to rob in houston. >> hey, george, no dancing in these floodwaters. that's for sure. i want to illustrate just how powerful these floodwaters are. just over a foot of water here, but the rushing really just pushing against me, wants to rush my feet and this is why these sort of situations are so, so dangerous, flash flood watches remain up for the entire houston area because of more rounds of rain that are likely to come tonight and again on thursday we stop at 4:00 probably some thunderstorms developing and another impulse probably by tomorrow morning and in some areas we could see
another 3 to 4 inches and that would exacerbate some of the flooding as these rivers are drying to drain into the gulf of mexico. dry across the northeast. red flag warning posted. we've got some breezy conditions as a little cold front is going to come through knocking down those near-80-degree temperatures and tomorrow temperatures back in the 40s so back to reality but all in all not too shabby. and record heat across the west coast expected today, 89 in seattle yesterday. that's just incredible. >> i am meteorologist mike nicco with the bay area accweather forecast. high clouds girlfriend us fuzzy sunshine. hot temperatures are gone. for more records starting today. it will be cooler tomorrow through friday with the best chance of showers on friday and comfortable this weekend. 60s at coast, 70s an the bay and 80s inland and tonight is like this morning with temperatures in the my 40s to low 50s. the seven-day forecast shows it is cooler by friday and stuck in the 60s.
as good as she dis, at some point, lara, i want to see ginger dancing in waders. that's going to happen and she's going to crush it. >> i do like that idea. weather-themed dance. and if anybody can do it, that's our ginger.

"the founder" landing in theaters on august 5th. michael, it looks great.

lemonade recipe a twist with honey bottling up her product sold in over 60 whole food stores and growing keeping mikaila busy as a bee. and for ryan, his dog barkley is to thank for his invention. >> me and my brothers would always fight go giving him a treat because the nasty smell would stay in your hands because of the oil in them. i thought make my own for him. >> reporter: making them by hand, he and his family sold the treats at local events. >> we had our treats packaged in little ziploc bags, and we put a sticker on them, and we dropped a business card in. >> reporter: word spread quickly then "shark tank" came calling immediately barking up sales. and stores like wegmans and petsmart kept taking a big bite. two kids tasting sweet success. >> would you like a cup? >> hey, and mikaila ulmer and ryan kelly are here along with

barkley, well, i say barkley, i mean ryan. he inspired you to be very philanthropic for giving back. he is a shelter dog and we have shelter dogs over there from the new york humane society. >> i believe giving back to shelters is one of the best things i could do because barkley came from a shelter and he is one of my favorite things. i always wake up to his cute face waking me up in the morning. so i always believe that giving back to shelters is great. i'm always trying to get dogs, as many dogs out of it as i can and always -- a shelter gave me my first start in the business so without them i probably wouldn't be here now. >> wonderful. barkley is taken but you are able to adopt these two over there, again, the humane society of new york -- oh, don't look right now. okay. okay. how are you doing? how are you doing? barbara, tell us what is so special about these two, of course, they were on "shark tank." talk about ryan first. because i know you've worked with him. >> ryan, of course, was cute as a button, he was a marketer's dream and i knew he was going to succeed but what they both have in common is they were smart enough to hire their families to work for free
and that gave them a great start to the business. >> that's true and their families are here and we love seeing them as well. but there's really something about, you know, being, you know, cute and being able to work with him and having his mother and all that but there was also something about the treat that made you think it would work. >> i knew it would work because of ryan. i saw his dog was overweight. i knew he was eating those business can yous all the time and more importantly, as they say, a good man has a good woman behind him and i met his mother on the set and between the two of them and his brothers, it's like hiring a whole new corporation. >> hi, mom. there's a corporation over there. >> hardest working woman. >> mikaila, your family has been helpful, as well. what was it about her? >> what was great about mikaila, she was smart enough to take advantage of her great story. she has a great story and people want to hear it. next rather than just hiring a distributor, she hired many distributors including the largest one that supplies whole foods, and that explains why she's in 50 whole food stores. this little girl, don't be
fooled, she is a manipulator. >> so how do you do it because you're in school and everything. how do you get it all done? >> well, it's definitely a lot of hard work. but what makes it worth it is that i know that i'm sharing my story and i love traveling around the country and then what also makes it worth it is that i get to solve a problem that not only helps the bees but also us. >> that's true. i had a lemonade stand but it wasn't anything like that and wasn't bringing in the moolah that you're bringing in and helping so many people. if a young person wants to do what you're doing, ryan, what are your suggestions? >> i will tell them, never give up. there were so many people that told me i couldn't do it and now i just said find me in ten years and then -- but also i think that there's no barrier to any age that you could start a business at. >> well, let's find some. thank you for that. daniela from the jupiter achievement of new york, what is your question for these
two young entrepreneurs? >> both ryan and mikaila are young but successful entrepreneurs. what would you say are your keys to success? >> big question. >> what is your key to success? your one big key. >> my one big key is don't be discouraged by life's little stings but get back up and spread your wings. >> oh. >> oh, my god. >> because when you're having a company there are some types you can be let down but don't let that stop you. >> yours? yours, ryan? >> i have a few words. one is give back to the people who gave you a start. have fun, and also be a kid while you're running your business. >> and that's what you wanted to say too, barbara. be a kid. >> you have to be a kid. my god, these kids have busy lives. their plates are full but they have the passion and the energy and youthfulness and attitude to make it happen. >> turning passion into profit. so cute. you can see barbara and "beyond the tank," that's tonight. that's tonight at 10:00, 9:00 central here on abc and those puppies, it's maurice -- oh,
