amazing images right there. 1500 pulses of lightning in just five minutes and now the heavy rains could lead to mudslides and our chief national correspondent matt gutman is in montecito, california, with the latest. good morning, matt. >> reporter: michael, good morning. from the heart of the evacuations. this area is the red zone. the reason for that is the fatal mudslides that killed 20 people last year in this area basically heavily damaged that hotel behind me. there was mud about 3 feet high. we're seeing barricades and police patrolling to try and ensure that police got out. >> whoa. >> reporter: overnight, that lightning show illuminating the california coast as threatening rain and deafening thunderstorms roll in. nearly 1500 pulses of lightning recorded off the santa barbara coast in just five minutes. those massive branches of lightning splitting the sky above santa barbara shocking the darkness with blue light.
those powerful bolts striking a delta flight headed to seattle forcing it to return to the los angeles airport, which was also struck, briefly losing power. nearly a quarter of an inch of rain swamping roads, flooding parts of highway 1 near guadalupe, california. 3,000 residents in santa barbara county ordered to evacuate ahead of the downpour preparing for those potential catastrophic mudslides near those fire-seared mountains. yesterday, police going door to door trying to ensure that people did in fact evacuate. 3,000 people under mandatory evacuations here. but you got to remember that this area has been under mandatory evacuations six, seven times in the past year. lot of folks saying they're going to ride this one out, michael. >> all right, thank you so much there, matt. ginger will have more on that big storm and the cold in the east just ahead. robin. >> all right, michael. now to those new signs north korea may be ramping up its missile program on the heels of
last week's summit. experts are now pointing to clues in these new satellite images. chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz has more. she's there in washington for us. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the experts say the rebuilding of this north korean launch site is rapid and deliberate at a site that had reportedly been dormant since last summer. this morning, those new images of construction at this long-range launch site in north korea showing cranes, vehicles and supplies next to the test site, the images emerging less than a week after president trump and kim jong-un's hanoi summit broke down which just this weekend trump called historic. >> i had very productive meetings with chairman kim jong-un. very productive. we get along. we've developed a good relationship, very good, and >> reporter: experts believe
construction began agaftin aer . president trump has made the lack of testing of nuclear and missile sites a major talking point when citing progress with north korea. >> we have no testing, no missiles going up. no rockets going up. no nuclear testing. >> reporter: but it has always been clear that north korea could restart its program at any time. experts believe that north korea already has or is close to having the ability to hit the u.s. with a nuclear missile. this also comes after the u.s. said it will no longer conduct the annual spring military exercises with south korea in order to give the talks with north korea a chance. rebuilding this facility could, of course, just be a negotiating tactic. one notable point about these images, north korea has made no effort to hide the construction work from those satellites, george. >> yeah, none at all.
okay, martha, thanks very much. also in washinck on pi tay for closed-door testimony before the house intelligence committee. as president trump labels the congressional investigations a big fat fishing expedition and his lawyers refuse to turn over documents detailing how the president pushed for his son-in-law, jared kushner's, security clearance over objections from intelligence officials. senior congressional correspondent mary bruce tracking it all. this could mean a showdown in court. >> reporter: yeah, george, house democrats this morning are weighing whether they should subpoena for this information, which would likely lead to a tough court battle. look, the white house says that they're not complying with this request because it was overly intrusive and the president does have the legal authority to grant these kinds of clearances, but the democratic chairman here says there is a difference between a president using his legal authority to grant clearances and a president who overrules his top advisers to benefit his family and then allegedly conceals it and, george, this all comes, of course, as cohen is said to do another round of closed-door testimony likely to press him on questions from russia to reports that his legal
team may have reached out to trump's attorneys for a possible pardon. >> a brand-new investigation in new york of his insurance practices that appears to have grown straight out of that michael cohen hearing last week? >> reporter: yeah, this seems to be a direct response to what michael cohen said in response to a line of questioning from freshman democratic alexandria ocasio-cortez. cohen told her that the president exaggerated his wealth to insurance companies and we're now seeing new york regulators subpoenaing his insurance broker. it's just yet another line of inquiry into the president's personal finances and business dealings. mary, ocasio-cortez, different subject, part of a new struggle. she is defending her fellow the senior leadership in the house are trying to pass a resolution taking on anti-semitism.
>> reporter: this is exposing a real family feud. a generational and ideological divide between sort of the old guard, the older, more established house members, house democrats, and these younger freshmen, more liberal members. at issue are comments by representative omar that critics say are anti-semitic and whether she's being singled out. we know the house will be voting tomorrow on this formal condemnation of anti-semitism, but it's largely seen as a rebuke of representative omar and you are seeing so many of those fellow freshmen coming to her response just exposing this real divide in the democratic party. >> which is why they may broaden it out to anti-muslim bias as well. okay, mary, thanks very much. and as the senate is set to reject president trump's emergency declaration to build his border wall, there is a new report that arrests of families have climbed over the last five months. in february alone, 76,000 crossed, the most in 11 years, and most are families with children in urgent need of food, water and medical care. customs and border officials say the situation is now at, quote, the breaking point. robin. now to that medical breakthrough. the fda has surge approved a nasal spray to treat a certain form of depression using the
mind-altering drug that's related to the club drug special k. our chief medical correspondent jennifer ashton is here with all this. millions, millions have to deal with depression. >> yes. >> and this is a new kind of drug that we haven't seen. >> exactly, robin. so let me break it down for you. this is a new approval for a very old drug. it actually came out in the '60s initially used as a type of anesthesia. the drug is called esketamine and this is going to be given in nasal spray form. it's already used off label intravenously but this is specifically for something called treatment resistant depression so this is for people who have failed two traditional types of depression therapy over the appropriate period of time. it does require observation. this will only be given at licensed and accredited designated facilities. people will have to be observed for two hours afterwards but potentially ne cause for optimism. >> it seems very exciting on the surface but what should prospective patients also keep in mind? >> always consider the caveats.
talking about this drug, esketamine, the issues, number one, potential success. when they studied this drug, it did actually give good results compared to placebo but we'll have to follow that. cost is always an issue anywhere from a couple of hundred dollars to a couple of thousand dollars wholesale, whether insurance covers that, of course, remains to be seen. restricted availability, this is not something that people will go to their pharmacy and take on their own and then side effects. this does carry a black box warning for sedation and altered thinking. >> you say it could really help two hard to treat groups. >> the two groups i'm most interested in, it carries a pregnancy category c, which means it could be used in pregnant women, and it's being studied for patients who are acutely suicidal so this is an area where we desperately need better treatment and this drug works as quickly as two days. >> and again, how long does it last, though? >> well, they're going to need to be treated every two weeks and then boosters as needed. >> you go to a facility to get treated. >> this is not going to be at your local pharmacy. >> nor should it be. >> exactly.
>> thank you so much, doc. we now turn to the recovery efforts under way from that deadly twister killing 23 people in alabama. crews are still searching for those missing and the white house has announced that president trump will tour the devastation on friday. abc's steve osunsami is there with the latest. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, michael. authorities say there are more than half a dozen people who are still unaccounted for this morning, and to give you a sense of their level of concern, i want you to see what all of this area looks like from our camera that's in the sky right now. they're worried that these people aren't with friends or family but are instead buried under all of this destruction. a total of 23 people were killed in this storm. ten of them, we're learning this morning, are from the same family, brothers, sisters, cousins. i had a heartbreaking conversation with the family of a 10-year-old girl who was killed here. her funeral is this weekend. the family says she was here visiting her best friend. the best friend is hospitalized this morning, she's the only person who survived in that
house. the friend's father and the fiancee were also killed. a series of funerals are planned and, of course, as you mentioned, the president is visiting here on friday. george. >> it is just so heartbreaking. okay, steve, thanks. we move overseas again to an explosive scare. a counterterrorism investigation is under way after three devices were mailed to airports and a train station in london. one of them caught fire. abc's chief foreign correspondent ian pannell is at waterloo station in london with the latest. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, george. from waterloo railway station as you say one of the three locations targeted with those letter bombs. overnight, police in ireland joining counterterrorism forces here in the hunt for the london bomber. three homemade improvised explosive devices, three locations across london. e mbcod the city's waterloo railway station. the other two mailed to london's airports. one to the city airport. the other to the main heathrow, and it was near there where someone started to open one of those letter bombs causing it to ignite.
the building then having to be evacuated, although happily no one was injured. >> and ian, the police pretty sure they're linked? >> reporter: yeah, that's right. the police are saying that they think it's linked and one of the key clues that they appear to have is at least two of those packages were mailed from ireland which is why police there have joined the investigation. counterterrorism command now warning people in london to be vigilant this morning for any suspect packages that could be in the mail or even left at stations like this. george. >> frightening stuff, ian pannell, thanks very much. michael. >> thank you, george. and now to new video showing those terrifying moments on a cruise ship. an unexpected 115-mile-an-hour wind gust tipping the massive ship nearly on its side injuring dozens of passengers. at least eight taken to the hospital. victor oquendo is in port canaveral, florida, with the new details. good morning to you, victor. >> reporter: good morning, michael. we met passengers who were still shaking when they got back on board last night. that powerful gust of s at
out the tornadoes to the south and were out at sea in the first place. it was a massive gust of wind that rocked the norwegian "escape" cruise sending objects and people flying across the ship. video from a passenger on board showing furniture sliding across the room as terrified passengers cry out in fear. diners running for safety and emergency announcements coming over the loud speaker. cruise ship staff directing passengers to the middle of the ship for safety. friends heather and brielle say they were petrified as the ship began to tilt. >> everyone was screaming, crying. >> reporter: cook an icu nurse said she began helping medical staff on board with the injured. >> we saw about 100 patients,
crew members, as well as members on the ship, anything from broken bones to lacerations. >> we're going to make access to the ship. i'm going to go ahead and start triage. >> reporter: at least eight passengers hospitalized seen taken off the ship on stretchers to waiting ambulances after the ship arrived in port canaveral on monday. >> i was pinned. >> reporter: the massive 163,000-ton norwegian "escape" cruise was hit with 115-mile-per-hour gusts of wind. that's the equivalent to a category 3 hurricane. the wind knocking the ship to its left side at 45 degrees for over five minutes according to those on board before eventually stabilizing. norwegian cruise line telling abc news the ship encountered unexpected weather in the form of a sudden, extreme gust of wind, and those who received injuries received immediate attention, adding, there was no damage to the ship during the incident and that it remains fully operational. many passengers are still shaken up. >> my heart rate and my blood
pressure was extremely high. it was terrifying. i don't even know what else to say about it. >> reporter: the ship is now headed to the bahamas. it will continue with its trip as planned. some good news here, all eight of those passengers who were hospitalized have been released. robin. >> that is great news but that had to be terrifying. now to the family that survived an avalanche barreling down the side of a colorado mountain completely covering the car. it was all captured on their dashcam. diane macedo has that story. >> our first avalanche. came off of those peaks over there. >> reporter: this morning, a new glimpse of that massive avalanche barreling onto a colorado highway and burying a truck with a family still inside. >> the moment i saw it and i thought like, oh, no, you know, oh, no, this is it. >> reporter: the coleman family was driving on interstate 70 sunday when their daughter spotted the avalanche. >> kyra was in the backseat and she was like, mommy, mommy, oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh. >> reporter: within seconds they were overtaken.
>> really, really terrifying, because you can't see anything outside. >> i'm thinking about oxygen and i'm thinking there's three of us in this cab, how much oxygen do we have? then, i saw a little bit of light coming from our moonroof of our truck. >> reporter: with a little digging the family was able to escape, but the colorado avalanche information center says the avalanche was likely a category 3 with enough force to demolish a house. >> i don't see how you could see it as anything other than miraculous that we survived that the way we did with no injuries, the car wasn't really damaged. none of the other people were harmed. to me that's unbelievable. >> you heard that right. the car wasn't even damaged. the daughter kyra now says the experience was exciting or at least she thinks so now that they're home safely. >> i couldn't imagine. >> and he said they could see it coming, nothing they could do. >> what could they do? nothing. >> thank you, diane. also this morning, embattled singer r. kelly speaking out. in an explosive new interview,
his first since being arrested on sexual abuse charges coming up. and luke perry's daughter is sharing a touching tribute to her father. we'll share with you what she's saying just ahead. but first, let's go back to ginger. >> and i want to start you out just north of akron where there was a 60-vehicle pileup. icy roads responsible for that shut down for some time. chicago, the stevenson, the ike, only a tenth of an inch of snow and that's all it takes especially when it's this cold and you get dozens of accidents. how cold is it this morning? the deep freeze in place, 9 below in chicago. in new orleans, they're waking up feeling like they're subfreezing. your local weather in 30 seconds. first the windchill forecast sponsored by walmart.

take a look at the windchill advisory map this morning. even central florida is facing alerts. and take a look at this. just moments ago a royal surprise. prince harry taking the stage in london inspiring children to help others when all of a sudden duchess meghan appeared. listen to the cheers. she got a big ovation. in his speech prince harry quoted martin luther king jr. saying darkness cannot drive out darkness. only light can do that. hate cannot drive out hate. only love can do that. he says meghan often reminds him of that quote, but that was quite a moment for everybody in the audience. >> gets a bigger cheer. >> that happens. we're going to switch gears now and go to that explosive r. kelly interview breaking his silence for the first time since being charged with sexual abuse. kelly broke down, called the accusations lies. alex perez is in chicago with the story. and alex, kelly could be facing serious jail time. >> reporter: hey, good morning,
george, that's right. he's out on bail and has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. he says what's happening to him could happen to any celebrity. the disgraced singer r. kelly is addressing allegations against him. in a heated interview he emphatically rejected claims of sexual misconduct against minors and charges of aggravated sexual abuse. >> i sit here and say this, i had two cases back then that i said in the beginning of the interview that i would not talk about because of my ongoing case now. >> okay. >> fair enough. but i will tell you this, people are going back to my past, okay. that's exactly what they're doing. they're going back to the past and they're trying to add all of this stuff now to that to make all of the stuff that's going on now feels real to people. >> but the past is relevant with you with underage girls. >> absolutely, no, it's not. >> why? >> because for one, i beat my
case. when you beat something -- >> you were acquitted. you were acquitted. >> you can't double jeopardy me like that. it's not fair. it's not fair to songwriter behind megahits like "i believe i can fly" and "remix to ignition" telling cbs news the charges against him are nothing more than rumors. >> not true. whether they're old rumors, new rumors. >> why would they say this about you? >> not true. >> reporter: his representative telling abc news overnight, if they believe that he's a predator and a monster, and that he's holding women hostage, they can come kick the doors in and come get him. but they know he's not a sexual predator. kelly was arrested late last month on ten counts of aggravated sexual abuse. denying the claims kelly at one point in the interview stands and begins ranting towards others in the room. >> y'all killing me with this [bleep]. 30 years of my [ bleep ]. >> robert. >> 30 years of my career. y'all trying to kill me.

sunny hostin is here, our senior legal correspondent. so unusual. one, he's sitting down for it at all as a defendant. >> really remarkable. that old adage, anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law, it does happen, and this type of video will be front and center if this goes to trial. it never ends well for a defendant. remember bill cosby's deposition was used against him at trial. remember that video of jerry sandusky and bob costas, that was used front and center, and that's why defense attorneys never allow this. i kept on thinking, where is his defense attorney and why was this allowed? this was a disaster for robert kelly. >> it's like he went rogue and like he's so narcissistic that he thought he could just convince people. >> yeah. >> okay, he kept bringing up -- unfortunately, he kept using the case, he was talking about the child pornography in 2008. that's not relevant here. >> it's completely irrelevant. we do have double jeopardy so
it's not going to be brought up at trial unless his team brings w char, t by ot by completely two, not by three, but by four different women, three who allege they were under the age of 16 when this happened and that's really, really significant, and he denies that further on in the interview. again, this video will be front and center. if the jury sees this and they don't believe him, they have his lying or their perception of his lying right on tape. >> this could be one piece of evidence. prosecutors also say they have dna evidence and other forms of evidence. you're a former prosecutor as well. how strong is their case? >> this is an extremely strong case. i mean, typically in sexual assault cases you have only the testimony of the victim. perhaps you have some dna evidence. you do not have videotaped evidence. this case, if it indeed has videotape evidence, is going to be very, very difficult to defend. >> and he's facing ten counts of sexual -- aggravated sexual abuse, possibly 70 years in prison.
court date is march 22nd, so what's next for him? >> i think we'll see this case proceed to trial, in my opinion. any type of plea deal would have to include sexual offender registry and would have to include jail time. i mean, this is something that's been going on for a very long time. i think everyone on the planet has seen the documentary. you know, you have four now new alleged victims. there's just no way any sex crimes prosecutor would offer a plea deal without jail time and robert kelly is denying all the allegations so i think we may see a trial here. >> robert, robert, robert. >> robert, robert, robert. gayle king, kudos to her. she seemed completely unbothered and she did her job. >> she did. i know you'll talk about this on "the view." >> yes, we will. 11:00 today. >> thanks for being here with us. >> thanks. coming up, luke perry's daughter and that touching tribute to her dad. er dad. this is loma linda, a place with one of the highest life expectancies in the country. you see so many people walking around here

"forbes" naming kylie jenner the youngest self-made billionaire ever but twitter is not having it. >> really? >> yeah, they're not having it, robin. they're saying that kylie had a lot of help from her star-studded family and, lara,
you're here to break it down. >> yes, i am, michael. so, those two words causing a lot of controversy, kylie has been in the spotlight since she was a little kid on "keeping up with the kardashians" and, yes, she has a massive social media following. that certainly can't hurt sales for her cosmetics, so did she become a billionaire on her own or not? you be the judge. kylie jenner, the 21-year-old makeup mogul and social media maven, seized the title of world's youngest self-made billionaire from mark zuckerberg who didn't earn the distinction until he reached the ripe old age of 23. now joining the likes of warren buffett, jeff bezos and bill gates, but kylie's inclusion in "forbes'" world billionaire issue has prompted a fierce debate online about what self-made really means. ah, kylie jenner, those days getting up at 5:00 a.m. to deliver the paper in the snow, saving up every nickel and this one, can someone please explain to he how kylie jenner is self-made? hard working, sure, but
certainly not self-made. "forbes" says they define self-made as any person who bills her own fortune and didn't inherit the money but dictionary.com begs to differ. weighing into the fray with, haven't we gone over this? self-made, having succeeded in life unaided. critics say when she launched her makeup line in 2015, she was already a multimillionaire several times over thanks to the omnipresent presence of the family. but jenner's defenders are quick to point that kylie cosmetics was started with her own money from modeling. kylie's fans say she may have been born into a wealthy family but her net worth now exceeds every other kardashian and jenner. she may have had a few million but she made the rest of her billion by herself. >> no one does anything by themselves. >> everyone gets a hand along the way. >> you call me a billionaire, i don't care how i got it. >> she's still a billionaire.

it's not looking good. >> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. and you can see "the bachelor" two-night finale on monday at 8:00, 7:00 central here on abc, and now we're going to go to ginger. i'm so excited to bring you a "gma" moment today from utah. they have a coach and a teacher who just happens to be a captain in the air national guard. he was supposed to be gone for a year but he came back at five months and surprised the guys so those are all his students but also the basketball team that he coaches and they were so pumped. i love that and just the love you hear when you watch this video and the beauty of that relationship was so special. thank you for sending that in. please do go to my facebook page and send your "gma" moment so we can share it with everybody else. let's get a check now closer to good morning. i'm abc7 news metrologist mike nicco. steady rain this morning then showers and thunderstorms for the rest of the day. more chances of wet weather
tomorrow and through the weekend but dry and more like spring next week. upper 50s to low 60s during the afternoon hours. light showers together. low to mid-40s in the north bay. tomorrowowowowowowowowowowowowow now to our new series spring skintervention taking a look at the hottest new trends in skin care. this morning we're looking at -- get ready for this -- blood cream. blood cream. yes, it's exactly what it sounds like, it's supposed to help you heal faster and look younger so what do people think? becky worley is on the case for us. >> reporter: in the hunt for smooth skin, the latest fountain of youth, your own blood. dr. barbara sturm sells a customized cream made from your own blood. bloods cream, really? the growth factors are said to supercharge healing and even
though it costs $1400, stars like hailey baldwin and emma roberts swear by it. >> would you use a facial cream made out of blood? >> no. >> no? >> no. >> if it's my own blood, maybe, but if it's not my own blood, i would be worried. >> yeah. >> what if it costs $1400? >> absolutely not. >> would you use a facial cream made out of your own blood? >> yeah. >> that doesn't sound gross? >> no. >> all right. >> yes, i would. my own blood. >> only your own blood? >> only my own blood. >> how long does it last for? >> good question. >> if it lasts the rest of my life, absolutely. >> reporter: the $1400 question, how well does it work? for "good morning america," bec francisco. >> thank you, becky. and board certified dermatologist and a good friend of our show dr. whitney bowe is here with her verdict. good to see you. >> thank you. >> so, are we really talking about blood here? >> platelet rich plasma so take
a look. blood is composed of red blood cells, white blood cells and then a yellow plasma that's naturally rich in platelets. the part that you want to young healthy skin is that prp, that platelet rich plasma because it starts to stimulate wound heal and the growth factors in it are thought to trick our aging cells into behaving as though they're young and healthy but you don't want white or red blood cells to get in there. those could cause inflammation and even stain the skin. >> okay, so, how do you know if what you're using is really working? >> to get an effective blood cream, make sure the plasma's not contaminated. to do that your doctor will take a sample of your blood so for today's purposes we're using a substitute and we put it in here and put it in a centrifuge. when i hit start, it actually separates out the different components of the blood based on their size and their density so, when it's time to remove that tube, it looks something like this. you can really see the separation of the different components but in reality prp
actually looks more like this. it's yellow in color so when you're shopping for a blood cream check the color. if it's a little yellow, that's okay. if it's red or pink, pass. >> so what does it need to do to be most effective? >> walk over here and i'll show you. so basically you're really hoping this growth factor is penetrating into the skin so imagine that the cake is your skin and the icing is the blood cream and these blue sprinkles are your growth factors. when you're rubbing this cream onto the surface of the skin, you're hoping that those blue sprinkles, those growth factors are penetrating into the skin but realistically speaking, we're kind of hoping at least they have an indirect effect and somehow communicate with the deeper layers, maybe. >> so we heard from becky. how long does it last? that's what people want to know. >> the answer is we don't really know. we even reached out to dr. sturm's team requesting any data to show these factors are active.
for more than a few hours and they said they provided all the information they could. >> bottom line it for us. what's your verdict? >> if you've got $1400 to spend, it probably can't hurt. but if you're looking for something with some real results, i'd say save the money for a trip to your dermatologist. >> what other suggestions would you have if you don't want to spend the $1400? >> there are so many other creams like retinoids, peptides that have been shown to have an effect even when you apply them on the surface, or you can use prp procedures in the office like a vampire facial. >> why not? we're talking blood. why not a vampire facial? full service here.
