taking part in the illumination honoring americans who fought and died for this country. >> and in ohio another annual tradition placing flags on the graves of fallen service men and women to recognize their enduring sacrifice. >> beautiful traditions and undeniably important. on this holiday weekend, there is a threat looming for millions of americans and it's a major storm called alberto which could bring heavy rain, flash flooding, gusty winds and tornadoes. there are states of emergency in alabama, florida and mississippi as the gulf coast braces for the possible tropical storm. alberto, it is the first named storm of the hurricane season which technically doesn't even begin until june 1st. >> the storm is set to make landfall tomorrow, but florida is feeling the effects and rob is on the ground in pensacola. rob, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, guys. not what floridians want on a holiday weekend and you see the gulf of mexico behind me being
churned up by alberto well to the south about 300 miles. we've been watching this on the computer models for about two weeks almost in disbelief not thinking this would happen this early in the season, but it is for reals and already impacting the u.s. overnight several states bracing for alberto as the storm puts a damper on the holidayec wooend. state of emergencies declared in florida, mississippi and alabama. we have chance for flooding. it's unpredictable. i know we all want to enjoy memorial day weekend with family, but everybody needs to be safe. >> reporter: alberto moving into the gulf of mexico overnight with winds busting to 50 miles an hour in florida. the panhandle facing up to 12 inches was rain. in miami, canals lowered to a foot as the heavy rain moves in. officials in pensacola warning of high surf and waves potentially reaching 16 feet
with high rip currents. >> we have a storm in the gulf of mexico. how uneasy does it make you feel especially what we endured last season. >> nature doesn't follow our time line. nature pretty much does what it wants to do. >> reporter: residents across the southern coastal states securing sandbags and water pumps as they prepare for flldinfllash floodings. >> anything that blows on high winds can be a missile. >> reporter: one thing we learned this year is mother nature is certainly not following the calendar. one of the issues with this storm is that a lot of this area has seen a tremendous amount of rain over a foot across florida and the ground is really saturated. let's go over the specifics of this thing and it has emerged in the gulf of mexico and 300 miles south of here and 80 to the 100 miles off the west coast of florida. already you see winds gusting to 50 miles an hour.
you see the winds gust in miami beach, tampa, and some of the rains are torrential and they'll be getting it hard here in the next six to ten hours and the forecast track brings it to 50 to 60 mile an hour, and increasing in intensity and making landfall around here tomorrow afternoon and drifting into the tennessee valleys and giving everybody a big stretch of rainfall. thunderstorm warnings have been extended across much of the entire western coast of florida with storm surge and the heavy rain and a tornado threat all inclusive today. guys? >> we appreciate you being out there covering it and we'll be covering the storm throughout the show and throughout the weekend. thank you again, rob, but we do move on to new developments overnight in the on again/off again summit between president trump and dictator kim jong-un. >> the pre-summit negotiations are very well all of this after a surprise meeting was held between the leaders of north and south korea to salvage their
talks and bob is here to cover it all. good morning to you. >> good morning, dan and paula. we have a remarkable, unexpected twist on this. remember three days ago president trump canceled the summit, planned for june 12th in singapore and much of this because kim jong-un's people called vice president pence a political dummy. then yesterday we find out that the north and south leaders held a secret meeting without telling anybody about it so maybe there will be a summit. just as any hope for the singapore summit seemed to be dying out it seemed to be back on its feet. >> we are doing very well in terms of the summit with north korea. >> new possibilities due to this secret face-to-face meeting on the border between their two countries, north korea's kim jong unand south jae-in begin with a hug and end with apparent optimism. president trump seemed to share the same sentiment. >> it looks like it's going very
well. >> after the handshakes, kim asked un to keep it quiet so he could make the announcement to his people. he expects the summit will go very smoothly and kim told him he would not weaken the nuclear abilities unless the u.s. would guarantee the survival of his regime. most people are hopeful. >> reporter: there is a mix of frustration and hope plus optimism. for south koreans this deal would directly influence their daily lives and the confrontation took a huge toll on their sense of security. >> reporter: of course, there is plenty of skepticism. just days ago trump canceled the summit because of north korea's tremendous anger and open hostility, but perhaps it's back on. trump has a team headed to singapore to prepare for the summit as planned. >> we have to remember that the u.s. and north korea are still officially at war. the shooting stopped 65 years ago, but no truce.
kim told un in the demilitarized zone, the dmz, that he wants to end the confrontation on the peninsula, in his words. paula, dan? >> so many twists and turns. bob reporting from the region. those comments from president trump overnight about the negotiations about the north korean summit. he was sitting next to someone. that man right there is josh holt, me was at the white house under dramatic circumstances. >> holt had been released from a prison in venezuela where he was held for two years overnight. he was reunited with his family and abc's tara palmery. good morning to you. >> reporter: it was a joyous reunion at the white house. the president admitted it was a tough situation, but a white house official tells us that nothing was offered to venezuela in exchange for holt's release. overnight a warm home coming for american detainee josh holt celebrated at the white house. holt recalling the agony after
spending two years in a venezuelan prison known as the dungeon. >> i am overwhelmed with gratitude. they were very, very difficult two years, and not -- not really the great vacation that i was looking for. >> reporter: the 26-year-old mormon imprisoned shortly after marrying a venezuelan woman he met online. venezuelan police arresting him on charges of terrorism, u.s.-linked espionage andel legal possession of weapons including a rifle and grenades. they were contending these charges were inflated. he endured inhumane conditions without trial. >> almost two years, josh, and amazing that you were able to take it. you've gone through a lot. more than most people could endure. >> shortly after touching down with his venezuelan wife and his mother. an emotional reunion with his mother. >> i want to say thank you to you personally. >> senators bob corker and orrin hatch working diplomatic channels since 2016, striking a
deal with venezuelan dictator nicolas maduro. >> we could write a book about the last 48 hours. >> it was days ago that holt secretly filmed this video for his release. >> i need help. people have taken the entire prison outside, they're trying to break in. they're saying that they want to kill me. >> the u.s. relationship with venezuela has been poor. the white house referred to maduro's last reelection as a sham and the people of venezuela are living without food and medicine, but the u.s. just imposed more sanctions this past week and the white house says they will stay in place. dan? paula? >> it's amazing they were able to get him out in this context. tara, thank you so much. so many political issues to talk about on this sunday morning and let's bring in martha raddatz in washington. good morning to you. so this is the second time in a few weeks we've seen donald
trump next to americans who have just been released from captivity overseas. before this it was the americans that were freed from north korea. how much of a boost do these stories give to the president? >> well, i think you just saw it there in tara's report, extraordinary. they're very thankful to the president. they say it again and again. donald trump trumpets all of these releases. it's very unusual for someone to be released and go straight to the white house for a photo opportunity. so i would say it's pretty obvious it does give him a boost. i'm not sure many americans knew about joshua holt and that he was held in venezuela, but we are all always happy when american prisoners are released. all of us are. >> martha, i want to loop back to north korea. as bob woodruff just reported kim jong-un says he will denuclearize the peninsula, but he wants security guarantees including the survival of his regime. how does america go about proceeding? >> i think those will be
negotiating issues if this summit does go ahead as originally planned. kim is very worried about what the u.s. will do. he's obviously watching what happened in libya to moammar gadhafi and that's what all of this controversy was about in the past week or so. he was worried about that. will he be killed by his own people eventually and that's the kind of security guarantee he wants. how do we do that? we've heard president trump say you're safe and you will have security, but those are the redetails they will be trying to work out if this goes ahead. >> it's tough for the north koreans and he was killed by his own people as martha mentioned. >> thank you very much. i want to remind everybody martha has a big show this morning and she'll have more on the north korean summit with marco rubio and michael hayden. >> plus the top democrat on the house intelligence committee, andrew schiff responding to the claim of the fbi spy in the trump camp.
that's coming up on abc with martha. to hawaii and a new threat of the erupting volcano just this morning. >> here's what's going on now. the winds on the big island of hawaii are dying down and the toxic gas erupting from the kilauea volcano could start to settle over people's homes. >> reporter: those gushing fissures exploding above tree tops sending rivers of lava flowing through neighborhoods. more than 80 buildings now destroyed on hawaii's big island. >> he was right in the middle of remodelling. >> this was jason evans and shana neiberg's dream home. that was their mailbox. a final warning from a neighbor of the destruction closing in. >> our house was already gone by that point. we just couldn't believe it just watching it take over our house. they built it from the ground up with their own two hands. >> those crackling mounds on the move threatening to cut off a highway. the marines with two super
stallion helicopters ready for possible mass evacuations. >> right now we have 12,500 pounds worth of passengers and gear per load. >> others volunteered to evacuate because of another looming threat. >> reporter: you see those huge plumes billowing out of the fissures and the winds carrying the toxic fumes in another direction are expected to die down this weekend potentially leaving a thick blanket of sulfur dioxide just sitting over this area. >> they walk into that cloud and they might smell it at that point and it will cause respiratory issues and it could be way more severe for those who have lung issues. >> roxanne heeding the warning and packing up and getting a look at what may be one last look from her home. >> they're the last moments before she moves any closer. >> officials say there could be as many as 200 people just in these neighborhoods where lava is actively flowing who have not evacuated and the national guard says for some this could be the
last chance to get out safely. dan and paula? >> marcy, thank you. i know we talked about this before. it is so beautiful and lethal at the same time. >> you feel bad for the residents watching their homes possibly destroyed. >> marcy, thank you again. let's take another look at the weather on this sunday morning and send it back to rob in pensacola as the storm named alberto bears down. good morning again. >> reporter: good morning again, lethal and beautiful. that's the gulf of mexico. we know it could be that way. we know they could be closing the beach to swimmers as this surf continues to churn up. heavy rain, and flash flood watches have been posted and we have unrelated to alberto some serious flooding happening right now across eastern pennsylvania and season the r and central new jersey. in wall township new jersey, you can see the radar there just lit up and they will get more rain as alberto's moisture feeds in over the coming days, but the focus of alberto are certainly the gulf of mexico and the big
bend of florida with the tropical moisture streaming in there. i wouldn't be surprised if -- eventually spinning up toward the panhandle. go time will be don't and tomorrow with landfall anied here potentially as a strong tropical storm if not a hurricane, hopefully that's n >> reporter: rain won't arrive here until later this afternoon.
after that, it will go downhill rain until later on this afternoon and after that it will go downhill pretty quickly on this memorial week end. an early start to the hurricane season. back to you. >> that was a busy map and we'll check in with you later. we do miss you. come back. >> after the storm. >> a lot of other headlines we are tracking and for that we always send things over to sir ron claiborne. >> sir? >> i used to be a doctor. now i'm a knight. >> they're not mutually exclusive. paul a good morning to you. and we'll begin with are in indianapolis where a hero teacher was shot three times while taking down a shooter on friday. jason seaman was discharged from the hospital on saturday. seaman tweeting overnight asking for support for his student ella whistler who who was critically injured during that shooting. she is still hospitalized. voters repealed the country's ban on abortion. two-thirds of voters supporting ending that ban. a pro-choice advocates calling

smokestack was set to be imploded, but after a loud boom and a cloud of dust, the stack is still standing although slightly shorter. >> it's like jenga. just came down a teeny bit. >> they will try to bring it all of the way down later this week. >> finally, at the european soccer final, football in kiev, ukraine, football madrid playing liverpool. take a look in the 63rd minute, boom! he stepped back and with an insane bicycle kick, seeing it there, the ball goes flying right into the goal putting his team in the lead and they stayed in the lead and madrid -- >> look at that. >> he did it once. ? it's not three separate goals. >> he didn't even have an eye on the goal. >> for an unprecedented third straight champions league title. >> i just want to say you can pull a hammy doing that.
