7:03 am
ten tourists who fled the fires has been reported missing. and this is happening very quickly. one witness saying everything happened in seconds. the fires are being stoked by the extremely dry, hot summer conditions, then fanned by gale force winds that frequently change direction causing the flames to spread without warning into those populated seaside towns. the fires are simply too fast for those people who are finding themselves trapped in their homes and in their cars to get out. we are hearing from greek authorities they will go in to search when it is safe. guys. >> all right, eva, thank you. >> okay, now to new satellite images that experts say show north korea dismantling missile engine test sites. this after kim jong-un's promise to president trump during their summit last month. our chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz is tracking all the latest from washington. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. according to analysis of new satellite imagery, the north
7:04 am
koreans appear to be taking apart a missile engine test stand at a site where they had been sending rockets and satellites into space. it is an encouraging sign for the trump administration after little to show from that summit in singapore with kim jong-un. at the very least, it is a confidence building measure, even though some experts say it is an easy concession for the north koreans to make since they've already developed an intercontinental ballistic missile that could potentially reach the united states. but as for nuclear facilities, the head of u.s. forces in north korea says there has not been a complete shutdown of production yet, nore even a removal of fue rods. >> analysts still looking for that. there were other promises made during that summit as well like the return of the remains of those missing service members from the korean war. any progress on that front? >> reporter: well, secretary of state mike pompeo said the return of some 200 remains could
7:05 am
happen within the next few weeks, but we still don't have an official date, cecilia. >> those families still waiting. thanks, martha. george? >> we'll move on to the new threat from president trump reviewing the security clearances of former top officials who have criticized his reluctance to confront russia over election interference. the white house argues they politicized their access to secrets. critics call it a modern day enemies list and terry moran has the latest. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning. president trump is leaving washington flying out to kansas city, missouri, to talk to the veterans of foreign wars. but he leaves behind hanging in the air this threat to use his authorities as president over the issuing of security clearances to target some of his fiercest critics. president trump's press secretary issued an unprecedented threat from the white house podium saying president trump was preparing to strip security clearances from some of the fiercest critics of his approach to russia. >> the fact that people with security clearances are making these baseless charges provides inappropriate legitimacy to accusations with zero evidence. >> reporter: among the high
7:06 am
ranking officials singled out, former fbi director james comey, former obama national security adviser susan rice, former cia chief john brennan and former director of national intelligence, james clapper, all of whom blasted trump's press conference with putin. >> i use the term that this is nothing short of treasonous because it is a betrayal of the nation. he is giving aid and comfort to the enemy and it needs to stop. >> reporter: the fallout enraging trump. >> the president is threatening to punish brennan and comey and clapper for saying things about him that he doesn't like. is that presidential? >> they've politicized and in some cases monetized their public service and their security clearances and making baseless accusations of improper contact with russia or being influenced by russia against the president is extremely inappropriate. >> reporter: in an interview following sanders' announcement clapper called the move a very petty thing to do. woeohe, c aputy, arew m
7:07 am
already lost their clearance a while ago, questions remain about who could be next. >> what about president obama and vice president biden, their security clearance, are they on the list as well? >> i'm not aware of any plans for that at this point. >> reporter: supporters of president trump had long been furious at comey and brennan and others and point out that it's a stark departure from american tradition for former intelligence and national security officials to be down in the partisan mud trashing the next president. you combine that with the president's retaliatory threat and, george, it's just a sign of the times here in washington and in many ways bad times. >> certainly is, okay, terry, thanks very much. let's get more from our chief legal analyst dan abrams. i think a lot of people don't know that former officials often maintain their security clearances but the big question on the table is if the president wanted to follow through, how would he do it? >> okay, so first let's say there are 4 million americans who have security clearance. a lot of them are contractors, don't work for the government, they regularly monetize their access to having security clearance. and, remember, having security
7:08 am
clearance doesn't mean you get access to secure information. what it means is you're part of the eligible pool of people who could get access. then there's another step. when there's something specific you want to have access to, you then have to get authorization. so i think it's important to understand that context. the president has wide latitude when it comes to security clearance. typically the only thing the courts can get involved in is the process. how did he go about revoking it? what were the procedures put in place, et cetera? but with all that said, the idea that the president would be revoking security clearance not based on wrongdoing, just based on words, is shameful. >> that is why a court could in the end, even though the president does have wide powers, could say this process simply isn't fair. he's targeting people who have first amendment rights. >> yes, except the president's got ways around it, meaning i think there are ways that if the president did this in particular ways, he could do it without the courts getting a real opportunity to review it. >> we'll see if he follows through.
7:09 am
new development on the mueller investigation. new word from the president's legal team that he might be willing -- he's offered to mueller that the president would be willing to answer questions about collusion, but not obstruction of justice. i know you're skeptical about the president's team willing to sit down for anything at all. is this something you think mueller would accept? >> no, they're calling it a counteroffer. i don't know what it means. a counteroffer to the fact that mueller said we want to talk to the president? now giuliani is coming out and saying we have a counter offer now. initially it was we won't talk about his business dealings but we'll talk about other things. now it's, well, we won't talk about the possibility of obstruction of justice. here's the problem, obstruction of justice is too closely linked to collusion. even if there is no collusion, you still have to be able to figure out what were the possible reasons for potential obstruction of justice. i don't see how they can figure out where that line is drawn between collusion and obstruction of justice in a way
7:10 am
that mueller would deem to be acceptable. >> so still no interview? >> there's no interview. it's not going to happen. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. robin. all right, george, now to that dangerous weather coast to coast. torrential downpours triggering flash flooding across the country leading to scenes like this in colorado. rushing water completely overtaking roads. ginger is tracking it all for us. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, robin. it only takes one to three inches in places like colorado on the front range where you get that muddy water rushing down the street. now, in pennsylvania and other spots along the east coast we have just saturated the soil. there's a place in maryland that has had up to a foot of rain in the last two days. and there's so much more on the way. >> watch out, man! there's a big wave coming. >> reporter: a wall of water shutting down highway 24 west of colorado springs. raging muddy waters sweeping through the streets of manitou springs. two to three inches of rain falling, then rushing down the mountain side. floodwaters carrying away this table and chairs outside a restaurant.

as hail attacks this windshield, and piles up along the road. >> hail two feet deep! >> sounded like a million marbles on the roof for about 30 minutes. >> reporter: in santa may, new mexico -- >> santa fe is not made for this kind of flooding. >> reporter: watch as rescue crews use a rope to save people stuck in this trapped car. just outside the nation's capital a 60-foot tree falling into this home in fairfax county virginia killing a woman inside. >> with all the rain and the past couple of days, things of that nature, the roots of these trees have really loosened up. >> reporter: parts of pennsylvania swamped too. water rising on porch steps submerging cars. the flooding even plaguing the famous hershey park forcing the amusement park to close for the day. and this morning we wake up with flash flood watches from charlotte, north carolina, to binghamton, new york. just west of philadelphia there's a flash flood warning. if you wake up and look at your phone and it says flash flood
7:12 am
warning this means it could be deadly if you go out in your car. that's how serious a lot of the wording is the last couple of days from the weather service. i want to lo at the ooust becau urban streets and, of course, all of the little creeks that can form, you can see five plus inches in some of these spots, guys. it will be a wet 48 hours. >> it certainly will be, ginger. details about the gunman in that deadly toronto shooting. two people died including a little girl. more than a dozen injured and the d in a shootout with police. abc's gio benitez is there in toronto with the latest. gio, any word on a motive yet? >> yes, cecelia, no known motive just yet and that intense investigation underway right now. i want to show you where we are. this is actually where the shooter actually went up and down the street shooting at different businesses. you can see right here this is one of those cafes boarded up, the glass blown out, and we have right here a small memorial. 13 injured. two dead. a 10-year-old little girl and an 18-year-old young woman.
7:13 am
now, we have a photo right now of that young woman. that 18-year-old, her name is reese fallon. a recent high school graduate who planned to study nursing. this morning we're also learning more about that shooter. police say you can see him on surveillance video. he's 29-year-old faisal hussain. of course, police and everyone else here, cecilia, is still asking that big question. why? >> yeah, that certainly is the question right now. the shooter's family is speaking out talking about his mental illness. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, cecilia. they actually sent in a statement and it says this in part. our hearts are in pieces for the victims and for our city. our son had severe mental health challenges, struggling with psychosis and depression his entire life. while we did our best to seek help for him, we could never imagine that this would be his devastating and destructive end. police aren't ruling anything out here including the possibility of terrorism, cecilia. >> so many questions there, gio, thank you. certainly we are thinking of our neighbors to the north.
7:14 am
>> we are. we move to the manhunt for a killer of a prominent houston cardiologist whose patients included president george h.w. bush. police released these new images of the man who gunned down dr. mark hausknecht while riding his bike to work and linsey davis is here with the story. good morning shl good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning. neighbors so desperately want to see the killer caught they are hitting the streets themselves. last night a group of more than a dozen went door knocking asking questions and handing out flyers canvassing the southgate neighborhood. this morning, the houston manhunt intensifies as family and friends mourn the death of renowned heart surgeon dr. mark hausknecht, police are urgently searching for his killer. these grainy images show dr. mark hausknecht in green riding his bike to work just before 9:00 a.m. on friday. broad daylight. it's a busy intersection. the suspect in red riding just behind. >> the suspect drove past the doctor, turned and fired two shots. the doctor immiatet gunman flees on a mountain the

>> so sad, linsey, thank you. to that major mistake for olympic swimmer ryan lochte, the six-time gold medalist suspended from competition because of this photo he posted on instagram and t.j. holmes is here and they say a picture is worth a thousand words. this one is worth a 14-month suspension. >> get this, robin, he's actually not accused of doping but just of being a dope, once again, for now posting a picture of himself breaking the rules and not taking a banned substance but taking it in a method that is banned. olympic gold medalist ryan lochte banned from competitive swimming until 2019 for violating an anti-doping rule. lochte inadvertently outed himself to the u.s. anti-doping agency when he posted this photo to instagram in may. it shows him receiving a prohibited i.v. vitamin infusion alongside his wife. the agency stressed there was no banned substance involved. >> i have been in the sport for a long time and i've always been
7:17 am
diligent in making that -- making sure that i know what i can and cannot put in my body. i just didn't know this was not allowed. most athletes do not either. if i did, i never would have done it. it's obvious that i would not have posted a picture. >> reporter: the 14-month suspension comes as the swimmer was supposed to be making a comeback in preparation for the 2020 olympics. after serving a previous ten-month suspension for his behavior during a drunken incident at the 2016 games in rio. just one month later lochte addressed the incident on "dancing with the stars." >> my biggest regret is letting other people down. this is my second chance. and i don't want to blow it. >> reporter: the longtime u.s. swimming star who became a household name at the london games in 2012 sported these american flag grills and coined a new word on e! reality tv. >> it's spelled j-e-a-h. if you say it like how it's spelled, it's jeah.
7:18 am
>> reporter: he's hoping for a third chance to get back in the pool. the i.v. injection, you have to be clear, he was taking vitamins. he had gone to walgreens, bought them in pill form and taken them, no problem. the i.v. form can dilute a drug sample. that's why they have to ban him. >> expensive mistake on his part. >> sure was. thank you, t.j. let's go back to ginger. >> checking in on the car fire in northern california. 2,500 acres burned. 5% contained and the heat is on. waco tied an all-time record high at 112.

8:16 am
sharing the same father and some of the same facial features. >> freckles. >> same amount of freckles. >> reporter: both revealing they knew about each other growing up but only met once. >> it's so crazy because i don't remember that at all. >> i said to her, i was a chunkster. surprised you could carry me. >> why was it you didn't really want to reach out right away when you found out, oh, i have a sister? >> i think i was so damaged as a kid through just the divorce of my mom and dad, and so that was really difficult. i guess i had this kind of like, wait, dad, you loved somebody else? >> reporter: several years ago their father was in a bad accident, prompting ina to reach out to cheryl by text. >> i just judged it -- i judged her too quickly and i just also -- i don't think my heart was ready. >> so you ignored it. >> i ignored it. >> reporter: this past march their beloved father passed away. once again, ina reaching out to cheryl sending her one more text.
8:17 am
this time cheryl wrote back. >> after our father passed to remember my dad it was like i really wanted to bond with ina. i really -- you know, she is, you know, half my dad. i've taken ina in that she is my sister and talk to her as much as my other sisters now. it's a constant communication. >> reporter: cheryl, recently engaged, invited ina to l.a. for her engagement party and to meet cheryl's side of the family. both are hopeful and grateful for their new sisterly bond. >> every single day we figure it out, wait a second. you do that too. you like cheez-its. i'm listening to everything she's saying and i didn't know you tap-danced. >> how has it changed your life? >> i knew about her but having her here and how supportive and encouraging she is, it's great. it's really changed.
8:18 am
she's forever my sister. >> that's it, girl. >> oh. got to work on that. got to work on that handshake. >> this was only the second time they'd ever seen each other in person and already they seem to have a really strong sisterly bond and, robin, cheryl is now talking about teaching her sister some ballroom dancing moves so lots of fun ahead for these two. >> they are certainly making up for lost time, abbie. thanks so much. george. >> thank you. we have a health alert about dads and depression. we've talked about the struggles of new moms and now new research from the indiana university school of medicine sheds light on the challenges for new fathers. dr. jen here to break it down. before we start here i want everybody in the audience with a clicker, any dad who has dealt with depression or anyone who knows someone who has, let's hear you click. >> so we ended up pretty split down the middle. 48% yes, 52% no.
8:19 am
that is much higher than what the study found which is 5% of men but that's equal to women. that's what's surprising. >> this was a small survey, george. it was done at a pedes clinic on one visit. they were just asked a simple survey and found the rates of depression were about the same moms to dads. other studies have shown the rate of what we call postpartum depression for dads as high as one in four. did you know that? >> that surprised me. i didn't have that. i mean, it was certainly a lot of change, but it was, you know, it was fascinating, fulfilling. i wonder, though, if that was the fact that we had kids relatively later in life. i was 40 when we had kids. >> look, i think that age comes into it but this is a major life stressor for both the mom and the dad. we talk so much on "gma" here about gender discrimination in medicine and how women are often undiagnosed and undetected for the same disease or condition that men are. this is the opposite. we don't have our radar up to
8:20 am
detect postpartum depression in dads and we need to. these are generalities but do know the same disease depression presents differently in men versus women. women it end to internalize their symptoms in general. men tend to externalize those. what does that mean, their manifestations are things we can see. they're more likely to engage in drinking or abusing substances, pill, drugs, they escape through activities that you can see, maybe anger outbursts, irritability or gambling but again it's more visible in general than it is for women. >> so what do you recommend for men who may be dealing with this? >> you know, the easy thing, george, a lot of dads go to their first visit with the mom to the obstetrician or midwife. ask that health care provider, say, what can i do? speak to mental health professionals, there are support groups, talk therapy, medication. express your feelings, you are not alone. you need to talk about this with someone. >> don't be afraid to confront it. >> no, there's no shame in this. we need to drop the stigma with all mental illness, whoever it
8:21 am
affects and obviously dads are just a vulnerable as moms are. >> great advice. to ginger. >> yes, let's do your "gma" moment, shall we? my friends from florida, these ladies are from ft. lauderdale. ponte vedra, did you know there is a pug shark? yeah, oh, yeah, it's a real thing. right. for shark week i wanted everybody to have the warning. that is bodie, a 12-year-old pug celebrating shark week with all of us. thank you for sending that in. they live in atlanta now so he's not getting as much water time.

8:24 am
when he tore in, can't even >> reporter: with shark encounters with body boarders tripling in the last year the team tests whether rescuers can prevent these encounters by simply splashing. >> five meters. bull shark. we have a bull shark down here. >> reporter: experienced shark researcher liz parkinson is on board at the water's surface. her team splashes the water closer to shore. >> all right, he broke off. >> reporter: the shore team successfully distracts the shark but not long enough to keep liz out of harm's way. >> dive alarm. >> reporter: the effects of their distraction wear off as the bull spark gets used to it. liz paddles for her life back to shore. >> i picked up the pace to get back to the beach. i'm just glad it worked out safely. >> all right. shark week is entertaining, also about education. we also have to put some perspective in here. there are 88 shark encounters in the world last year. that's up from 83 as the average but still 2015 we had 98 so it's t but some rage, no reason fors
