7:03 am
>> reporter: some even finding debris from the fire in their yards. >> they look almost like a lump of charcoal. >> reporter: and while schools are set to re-open today, some environmentalists say the toxic chemicals streaming into the air could become a threat to people living in the area at any time. >> by looking behind me you can tell this is not normal. this is not fine. the only thing that's preventing this from being a major catastrophe are favorable weather conditions. >> reporter: and outdoor activities at schools in this area are cancelled as a precaution. officials say they expect this massive fire to keep burning and it may not be out till tomorrow. michael? >> wow. thank you so much, marci. now to those new warnings about major flooding in the midwest as more states are on alert for record flooding and more rain moves in. abc's gio benitez is in nebraska with the latest. good morning, gio. >> reporter: michael, good morning to you. the waters rose so quickly here that we are just now seeing the true extent of the destruction
7:04 am
left behind as these waters recede. take a look at this house, because it's still surrounded by water this morning. let's go ahead and show you what we are seeing across this state because more than two-thirds of nebraska's counties are still in a state of emergency this morning, 14 bridges have been destroyed, and at least three people have died. now, this all started because the ground was already frozen from record snow and cold. then, water levels rose in those rivers. the water had nowhere to go. and then the warmup started. the flooding did, too. now, officials here are calling this the most extensive damage this state has seen so far. it will take months, possibly even longer, for them to recover. michael? >> all right, thank you so much, gio. now to ginger and, ginger, when will the worst of this be over? >> for nebraska you got another half inch of rain or so on the way. it's happening now. but look at these pictures. the rivers in missouri, in illinois, still forecast to go up to three feet higher than what you're seeing right there. this is north of st. louis. those homes isolated like
7:05 am
islands and, again, they still have more water coming. then you look at near colona, illinois. so, this is the rock river. and near moline, the worst flooding since 2013. where is it coming from? that snowpack. it is so intense. lots of places had their snowiest februarys on record if not their snowiest winters so you see all those warnings stretch down to memphis, down the mississippi into louisiana. we're going to be watching this, michael and robin, for weeks. >> yeah, it is massive. ginger, thank you. now to the latest on that possible terror attack in the netherlands. a third person is now in custody after a gunman opened fire on a tram killing three people and wounding five others. ian pannell is on the scene for us with more. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, robin. breaking right now, the police here just announcing that there was no personal relationship between the main suspect and those victims. that indicates there was no personal motivation.
7:06 am
also, they're saying that they found a letter in the car that he used to escape suggesting a possible terrorist motive. that police investigation still very much under way. overnight, police arresting a third suspect in connection with the shootings that have shocked a nation. gunfire erupting on a dutch commuter tram midmorning yesterday. raising immediate fears this could be related to the new zealand terror attack. the gunman, wielding an automatic weapon, killing three and wounding five more. the attacker then fleeing the scene sparking a massive manhunt. the city of utrecht locked down and heavily armed counterterrorism police swooping in. with dozens of tactical officers moving through the streets of utrecht. authorities now have this man in custody identified as a key suspect seen here on a tram shortly before the attack. he's 37-year-old gokmen tanis known to authorities and has a criminal record.
7:07 am
>> we are investigating all possibilities so that means possible terrorist motives but also other possible personal motives. >> reporter: while the victims are a 19-year-old woman and two men, one aged 28, the other 49, three others are said to be severely wounded. three people in custody. the dutch police can hold them up to three days without charge. but this investigation is still goes on into exactly what happened right here and crucially, why? michael? >> all right, so much more to investigate. thank you so much, ian. as investigators try to determine a motive for that netherlands shooting, u.s. intelligence officials are sharing new concerns that there could be an increase in attacks after that mass shooting at two mosques in new zealand. abc's will carr is in christchurch with more. good morning to you, will. >> reporter: good morning, michael. authorities both here in new zealand and in the united states say there is a real concern over copycats. it comes as both isis and al
7:08 am
qaeda are calling for retaliation so law enforcement across the world is on high alert after 50 people were killed here in new zealand. 30 people are still in the hospital. and the prime minister says the gunman will face the full force of the law. >> he sought many things from his act of terror, but one was notoriety. and that is why you will never hear me mention his name. he is a terrorist. he is a criminal. he is an extremist. >> reporter: the prime minister says she wants to strengthen the country's gun laws in the next ten days. they don't have the second amendment here in new zealand so you could see those sweeping changes pretty quick. michael? >> all right, thank you so much, will. i'm pretty sure some people say the sooner the better. to the white house now. president trump's lawyers heading to court this morning to face questions about the trump international hotel and whether the president is profiting off of foreign governments in violation of the constitution. abc's kyra phillips is outside the hotel. and kyra, this lawsuit poses a
7:09 am
pretty serious threat to president trump. >> reporter: good morning, george, that's right. you're absolutely right, it could. this historic lawsuit about the hotel behind me has nothing to do with russian election interference or the special counsel. but it could reveal the inner financial workings of the trump organization. it's hailed as washington's exclusive social club, stop by any night and you may walk into corey lewandowski's book party. or rudy giuliani's guys' night out. even the president himself dropping in for dinner. >> thank you, everybody. >> reporter: there's also the bahrain, azerbaijan, even a south korean politician live-streaming his dinner. and the kuwaiti embassy recently hosting its annual gala. two cabinet secretaries in attendance, but now a historic lawsuit filed by the d.c. and maryland attorney generals calling into question those foreign patrons claiming president trump is profiting off
7:10 am
foreign governments. and they say that's a violation of the u.s. constitution. >> we can prove that the president of the united states, a major owner of the trump hotel, is, in fact, receiving moneys from foreign countries. >> reporter: their lawsuit alleging president trump is violating the constitution's foreign emoluments clause, which bars those in office from accepting gifts or profiting from a foreign government. trump's attorneys fighting back arguing that foreign dignitaries are not attempting to curry favor with the president by patronizing the trump hotel. but may simply just prefer the trump brand. and that the president isn't prohibited from engaging in private business transactions. now, george, the trump organization telling abc news that they donated last year's profits from foreign governments to the u.s. treasury. we're talking about $191,000. they also say we do not market to or solicit foreign government
7:11 am
businesses. trump's attorneys want to see the lawsuit dismissed. but prosecutors want the court to allow them to start gathering evidence. they've already issued dozens of subpoenas, george. >> yes, to answer those questions at the end. this is not the only place where the president is facing questions over this issue. congress looking into it as well. >> reporter: absolutely. his conflicts of interest have attracted the attention of the house oversight and judiciary committees. it's a main focus, george, of those 81 letters sent to people and businesses connected to donald trump earlier this month, george. >> okay, kyra, thanks very much. michael. now to that new alert about spring break dangers that emergency meeting is getting under way in miami beach this morning after a series of fights broke out. and two college football players were robbed and shot nearby. abc's victor oquendo is in miami beach with the details. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning, michael. the mayor of miami beach has seen those videos of
7:12 am
those fights that broke out right here along ocean drive on miami beach. he calls the situation unacceptable. now calling for an emergency meeting to discuss safety concerns during spring break. this all-out melee on ocean drive, one of several brawls across miami beach in the days since spring break kicked off. this morning, police say they're cracking down to prevent the widespread violence and unrest from escalating. the city giving police an additional $700,000 this year so more officers can be on patrol. mostly for spring break. even using infrared radar technology to keep an eye on growing crowds after dark. >> i sent letters to somewhere around 300 or 400 college presidents across the united states. and in addition to the presidents of every greek fraternity or sorority. we're cracking down on quality of life offenses like drinking in public, smoking weed. >> reporter: and on saturday, two college football players from texas a&m commerce were robbed and shot outside downtown miami. both jay bias and xavier morris in the hospital in stable
7:13 am
condition. >> they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. they had come in on a redeye to start spring break and literally the first place they went was to the grocery store and unfortunately didn't quite make it back. >> reporter: police still gathering details on what led up to the shooting. miami beach police gearing up for yet another big weekend here. they prepare for about six weeks of spring break. it's not over yet, robin. >> it is. all right, victor, thank you. now to new fallout from the college admissions scandal. usc is now cracking down on current and former students who may be involved in the alleged scheme. our chief national correspondent matt gutman has more from los angeles. good morning, matt. >> reporter: robin, good morning. this is a big shift from the university. until now, it said it would only take action against kids involved in the application process. now it's going after students actively enrolled in the
7:14 am
college. it's right after spring break at the campus and this means that any student involved in that massive alleged bribery scheme by rick singer will not be able to re-enroll in classes in the spring semester. they are also not going to be able to get their school transcripts, which could affect their transfer to other schools and means it could affect their job applications in the future. now, among the most prominent faces in this category are olivia jade, the daughter and her sister, who are the daughters of "full house" star lori loughlin. >> and, matt, we're hearing another parent has turned herself in. >> reporter: that's right, 11 days early, and that was in boston in a court there. she and her husband accused of spending $600,000 allegedly in bribes to try to get their kids into usc and ucla. now, she was released on a million-dollar bond. did not make a plea but faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted. robin? >> all right, matt, thank you. this is far from over. >> not even close yet. okay, now to another hollywood executive forced out.
7:15 am
in this me too moment. the head of warner brothers has stepped down amid an internal investigation into whether he promised movie roles to an actress he was having a relationship with. linsey davis has the details. >> reporter: a major fall for a media giant, warner brothers studios' ceo kevin tsujihara who has led the company through lucrative films like "a star is born." and the latest lego movies is now stepping aside after allegations of sexual misconduct, the 54-year-old studio chief was said to be pushing for auditions for the woman he was alleged to be having an extramarital affair with, british-born actress and singer, charlotte kirk. kirk has appeared in small roles in hit movies like "ocean's 8." >> so this is your gallery? >> yeah, one of them. >> where are the others? >> reporter: tsujihara initially denied the allegations, but then leaked texts to "the hollywood reporter" pointed to a sexual relationship. tsujihara reportedly telling kirk, i need to be careful. and later the actress reportedly writing, you're very busy.
7:16 am
i know. but when we were in that motel having sex, you said you would help me. his personal attorney has stated mr. tsujihara had no direct role in the hiring of this actress. in a letter announcing his resignation, tsujihara wrote, we have decided that it is in warner brothers' best interest that i step down as chairman and ceo. kirk previously released her own statement saying, i emphatically deny any inappropriate behavior. also adding, mr. tsujihara never promised me anything. warner media released a statement saying, in part, the company continues to work with a third party law firm to complete its investigation with mr. tsujihara's cooperation. charlotte kirk has released her own statement saying she is deeply saddened to see tsujihara step down. i think it is important to make the distinction, tsujihara does not face a sexual harassment or, you know, any kind of misconduct issue here. there's a california law that basically forbids bosses from having sex with subordinates even if it's consensual. that's what he faces. >> a law for that?
7:17 am
>> apparently so. >> common sense. >> you learn something new every day, though. there's a law for it, robin. thank you so much, linsey. now we go to an incredible moment on the court from the one and only steph curry. take a look at this. the two-time mvp might start out a little cold in the game last night against the spurs but this unbelievable buzzer-beater at the end of the first quarter was straight fire. yeah, 61-foot three-pointer from the opponent's three-point line is the farthest shot anyone has hit in the nba this season. but it still doesn't break curry's personal record of 62 feet back in the 2015 playoffs. i don't know who is measuring, guys. but it wasn't enough for the warriors, they still lost the game 11-105. the last time george and i played he made that on routine. >> not close. >> curry who? >> he posed like that. how about it's march madness time.
7:18 am
this morning, we now know the seedings for the women's tournament that were unfortunately accidentally leaked in advance. some big twists. for the first time since 2006, perennial powerhouse uconn is not a number one seed. the 11-time national champs entering the big dance as a number two seed. the number one seeds are -- defending champion notre dame, last year's runner-up, mississippi state, hail, state. baylor, the overall top number one seed. and louisville, tennessee, on the bubble, making the tournament for a record 37th straight time. every single time they've made the tournament. >> incredible. overnight boeing's ceo spoke out after those two crashes. we'll tell you what he said raising questions and take you inside a boeing 737 simulator to show what may have gone wrong. that is ahead. right now, we want to go to ginger. >> the tuesday trivia brought to you by capital one.

breathe but those who live nearby are still concerned. there are new warnings about flooding in the midwest as more rain moves in. rivers could rise and record flooding could spread to more states. and take a look at this. super bloom of poppies in southern california's lake elsinore. so many people have been rushing to take selfies. on monday, officials shut it down. they decided more access this morning. it is pretty. >> gorgeous, gorgeous. but now to new developments involving the deadly crash of the boeing 737 max jet. boeing's ceo speaking out overnight, as we learn more about what those black boxes reveal. david kerley is at a 737 simulator in toronto with more. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we're trying to give you a sense of what it's like in this aircraft a little bit later. together in ethiopia and in the next day, day and a half we may have more information on what happened in this secon boeing 737 max crash in
7:32 am
ethiopia, the ceo appearing on camera in a statement to the flying public. >> lives depend on the work we do at boeing. and that demands the utmost excellence and integrity in how we do it. >> reporter: he says his company is cooperating with the faa and ntsb on the investigation into this crash, now gathering in ethiopia to analyze the data and the lion aircraft in which it acted in a similar way. >> together we'll keep striving to earn and keep the trust people have placed in boeing. >> reporter: boeing, according to one financial analyst, could lose $500 million a month coming in while it's stopped delivery of the 737 maxes. isas que swirl about prsured them to cede more and more control to boeing. >> it is the norm now for most of the work of certifying the
7:33 am
safety of an airplane to be delegated to boeing engineers. >> reporter: now, increased scrutiny. investigations about how the jet's new anti-stall system called mcas connected with the first crash was certified safe. boeing did market this model to airlines as cost effective requiring minimal training and no time in a simulator because of commonality with the previous version, the 737 next gen. >> i talked to an american airlines pilot who told me that his transition from the 737 ng to the 737 max required him to train for approximately an hour or less than two hours on an ipad. there was no simulator training. there was no real world training. that was it. >> away we go downhill. >> reporter: flight instructor aaron murphy is in a simulator from that previous model, 737. in the first crash we know right after takeoff bad data turned on that anti-stall system, the mcas.
7:34 am
>> the mcas is perhaps sending in information we're stalling. we fight it. we get on the trim and try to recover. >> reporter: the difference in the max is that that automatic system would be more aggressive in pushing the plane's nose down essentially putting it into a dive. >> the mcas is trimming down. >> reporter: murphy illustrating how that anti-stall system which pilots didn't know about before the crash was difficult to battle and if they did correct, the mcas would re-engage. >> the mcss is trimming nose down, we're fighting it and then it kicks in again. >> reporter: the question this morning, was that anti-stall system involved in both crashes? >> it just becomes a seesaw battle and every time it takes over it is trimming further nose down. >> reporter: so we are simulating right now nose down and, aaron, boeing has a procedure basically that you're supposed to follow if this happens. what do you do? >> absolutely. it's the runaway trim procedure and first thing you have to do is turn off the autopilot. get rid of the automation. >> if the tail is still nose
7:35 am
down you have two switches down eare. ioto come d stabilizer trim cutoff switches and shut it off. this is a manual wheel which doesn't turn in the simulator but you are now moving the tail back up to get us back up to level flight. >> you are completely flying manually at this point. >> that's correct. recovering the flight path of the aircraft and we'll head straight back to the airfield. >> the procedure basically shut off the system which he just did. this looks complicated if you have not been in one of these cockpits but it's like your car. >> with the right training it's second nature. >> new software is coming on the way it works in the max. that's supposed to be out in a couple of week, guys, according to boeing and the faa. >> how many simulators are there, steve? >> so, there are only a few actually, boeing has one in miami. air canada has one. american airlines is getting theirs in december. basically the simulators are
7:36 am
very similar except they are a couple systems that act differently in this -- >> i'm sorry i called you steve, david. we're about to talk to aviation expert, conell steve ganyard. what did you see in that demo, steve? >> robin, really interesting there. i'm glad david did that. that tells us what could have prevented the lion air mishap. in that there was maintenance malpractice, things that weren't fixed and then there was pilot error. you saw those two switches that the captain there in the simulator switched off. if those two switches had been switched off and left off in the lion air crash, it would have never come down. so the real question is, did this new autopilot that boeing initialized in the max, was it a contributing factor? but we have to go back to what we know in the lion crash was human error. >> how can people trust? how can passengers trust manufacturers, regulators when they're only being told now that they're doing what they can to
7:37 am
make sure that that aircraft is fully safe? only now they're doing that. >> yeah, robin, we haven't seen anything that would suggest that there was any duplicity or boeing was covering something up, but david did point out there is a real balance here, was the faa underfunded and did they have to rely on boeing to certify the jet? and in the process did something where an engineer said this could never happen because people would have to make five or six different errors, did that actually happen and did this autopilot contribute to the mishap in lion air and maybe in the ethiopian crash? but, robin, you know, flying is based on trust. it's just not natural to get in that little tube up there and fly at six miles above the earth at the speed of sound and so when something calls into question the safety of that airplane, people get very nervous. boeing as a business rests on trust. if they can't get our trust back, they're not going to be
7:38 am
around much longer as a company so they have a vested interest in making sure this gets fixed and fixed right. >> of course, they have a vested interest in this but is the problem just faa being underfunded, or is there some kind of inherent conflict where the faa is expected to protect safety and boeing needs to get them online. >> there is a tension between the commercial push to get these airplanes off and to get them certified quickly and so this is something that the congress is actually going to have to go back in its oversight role and make sure that too much of the certification process is not being given to the manufacturer. it's a real question. >> okay, steve ganyard, thanks very much. >> our thanks to david too. >> fascinating. coming up, teacher under arrest accused of having a relationship with a teen. his parents used a phone app to uncover. we'll tell you how. ♪ [friend] i've never seen that before.

8:18 am
beat disease," dr. william li is taking that notion one step further. >> do you say that we have completely underestimated how foods can beat disease? >> we can take food seriously like we take medicine. using the same rigor, using the same science, using the same demand for evidence we have for medicines. >> reporter: his book doesn't contain a weight loss program. and it's not about what foods to avoid. instead, it's a guide to integrating some of the hundreds of health-boosting foods he says research shows starve cancer, reduce your risk of dementia and beat dozens of avoidable diseases. his top five, soy milk. you're here to say it's not bad. >> well, soy has developed a scary reputation because some people believe that an estrogen like compound that's found in soy can cause breast cancer. it turns out that the research is completely turning that fact around. soy actually contains a plant estrogen that is nothing like human estrogen and can counter

wine, beer, olive oil, yes, please, right. he says what set him on this journey as a medical doctor after a prognosis, his patients would often ask, what they could eat? he was not taught this in medical school or his additional training and he thought it was wrong, robin, so it set him on this path and says all of this is backed by hard scientific evidence and research. but it is really fascinating. >> good to know. what's your big picture? >> i know dr. li. he is legit. the real deal. but let me give the big picture view, as paula said in medical school doctors are taught basically zero about nutrition. in general, the field of nutritional science is really in its infancy. its methodology is not as sophisticated as our medical science yet and that limits the information that we can be taught so we definitely need more understanding when it comes to this because, again, we know that food can make us sick and potentially obviously can make us better as well.
8:21 am
>> so, in his book, he talks about eating the right foods. let's flip it a little bit. if you eat the wrong foods, what's the biggest effect you can have? >> i think that's important, robin. we have to start with the harms or the risk or even the status quo and unfortunately we've heard the s.a.d., the standard american diet, typically high in processed foods, high in sugars, high in chemicals and nutrient poor. not getting a lot of bang for the buck when you eat the way we normally eat and that has been associated with everything from obesity to heart disease to cancer to mood conditions, the list goes on and on so, if we don't take a look at where we are right now, it's hard to move to a place where we can fix it. >> there's a good point. food can be used as medicine. >> yes. >> if you will. >> hippocrates said that. >> how can we boost our immune system? >> what dr. li talks about, you

it's a big day for the duchess of cambridge accompanying the queen without her husband, prince william on an official outing in london. this morning, a rare royal duo in action. the queen making a joint appearance with duchess kate. the monarch looking pretty in pink gearing up for spring tomorrow and kate a little more somber in gray. the pair officially re-opening a newly renovated building at king's college, london, at which the queen is a royal patron. >> it's definitely an honor for members of the royal family to be invited to carry out engagements with the monarch. it's an opportunity for them to further their bond with her and also for them to learn from her on the job. she's been queen for 67 years. she's been doing this for a long time. she knows what she's doing. >> reporter: the last time we saw the queen and kate out and about together without prince william was seven years ago. they went on a trip to the town of leicester as part of the to.en's nationwide diamond they were seen giggling together, much like when the
8:25 am
queen went on a girls trip with her other granddaughter-in-law meghan traveling on the queen's personal train. a rare treat for the duchess who was less than a month into her marriage with prince harry. >> to go on the royal train is very special. it's not used very often. it's a nice opportunity for us as well to see them interact together. meghan clearly already has a nice bond with the queen. >> and now that prince philip has officially retired from public life, the young royals are stepping up and keeping the queen company. as we know, the soon-to-be 93-year-old monarch does plenty of engagements solo as well. >> wow, i can't believe it's been seven years since we've seen those two together. thank you so much, erielle. everybody, stay there, because oscar winner lupita nyong'o is here live. we'll be right back.

i have only seen the trailer so far. not only is this a new genre for you but you are playing two different roles and sometimes you're on the screen together with just yourself. i mean, how challenging was that? how exciting? >> it was pretty challenging. i never got to meet my scene partner, you know. [ laughter ] so it was quite a technical challenge. and, of course, to play both roles took a lot out of me. they're very different and they're coming for each other so it took a lot of like acting with a green dot on a pole. things like that so i was very surprised to see the movie and to see how they so seamlessly made it work. [ applause ] >> because you wouldn't know that. >> yeah. >> and it is a horror film. you may be a little too convincing because i hear you scared a fan at a screening. >> i wasn't even trying. that's the thing. >> really convincing. >> i went to the toilet as one does. [ laughter ] you know, and she came out of the stall before me and i came

out of my stall and she freaked out. she was washing her hands very zen-like then she looked up and she was like -- aagggh! and then she just held her heart. >> if there is something what is the scariest thing about you? >> well, what's scary about me is that i really like scaring people. so that's -- yeah, i'm one of those. like, before the film came out, my mom was terrified of seeing this film. and, in fact, she watched it with her eyes closed and her ears -- manager in her ears. she hasn't really seen it. but a week before she came from kenya and i lay in wait at the foot of her bed. >> oh, no. >> before she got to bed. and i got up and i said, are you looking for me? [ laughter ] >> i almost went like this. whoa. [ laughter ] oh, boy. >> it is a mind-bending idea.

[ applause ] what's your number one tip? >> so really our number one tip is to create zones so you'll kind of see we like to refer to it as prime real estate. so everything that you need, like, at an accessible area. so that you can easily grab it and go. here we have kids' snacks even. and so kids can easily grab that. even over here what's really great about our refrigerator is it kind of already comes with these zones so on this side it kind of forces you only to put things that actually fit here. and even over here, we have the beverage side that you can store
8:42 am
all of your beverages, or even any foods that are similar. >> so just because they have these don't mean just throw ig in this there. there's a reason they're organized. >> yes, yes. >> also you have in your pantry. >> yes. >> you recommend some zones in the pantry, as well. >> yes, so over here -- >> what do we have over here? >> so just like the refrigerator it's kind of nice to set up these diz designated areas. so prime real estate things you need accessible. for example, over here we have this breakfast bin, so i think everybody is kind of eating breakfast daily. >> yep, so slide that right in there. >> so with the breakfast bin, you can obviously -- you're in a hurry in the morning trying to get out the door. it's all right here and ready to go. and then even like again kind of that idea of like what you want your kids to access. >> oh, keep it down low. >> yeah. so here we have kids' snacks, if you want them accessing it, obviously. and then this is a great one up
