of that driver. now the new alerts as the storm barrels east. breaking overseas kim jong-un and vladimir putin face-to-face for the first time, inside their high-stakes summit on nuclear weapons and what putin plans to tell president trump. measles emergency. the outbreak now officially the worst in almost 20 years. nearly 700 confirmed cases coast to coast. and now the new warning from the cdc. a new twist in the college admissions scandal. how lori loughlin will try to stay out of prison and the message now from another star who faced a high-profile court battle, martha stewart. ♪ go big or go home and we're live in nashville where the nfl draft is about to get under way. nearly 300 players, one dream, all waiting for their names to be called. ♪ go big or go home and good morning, america. and good morning to robin in nashville. all set to host the first round of the nfl draft tonight. what a big day ahead, robin. >> if i had a cowboy hat, i'd
7:02 am
tip it to you right now, george. big day for the players and the nfl too celebrating its 100th anniversary. this is a moment these athletes have been waiting for since they were probably playing pee wee football, cecilia. >> big moment there, robin. we're all looking forward to following you all morning long. it is also a big moment here for former vice president joe biden. he just released that announcement making it official saying he is running for president. robin, you'll sit down with him soon. >> yes. i'll head to pittsburgh for that. i will sit down with the former vice president and his wife, dr. jill biden. that will be next week and looking forward to that and he has a lot to say and can't wait to hear what he has to say, george. >> that is coming up next week. robin, this morning, the announcement, he made it official moments ago. kicking off that presidential campaign. i want to go straight to our senior national correspondent terry moran. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. joe biden spent 36 years in the united states senate in this building, but he spent a lot of
7:03 am
time thinking about running for president. he's run twice before and today he jumped into the 2020 race with a bold appeal to bedrock american values. joe biden jumping into the 2020 race for president with a stark and stunning video announcement. images of white supremacists marching in charlottesville framing his vision of what's at stake in this election. >> we're in a battle for the soul of this nation. the core values of this nation, our standing in the world, our very democracy, everything that has made america america is at stake. that's why today i'm announcing my candidacy for president of the united states. >> reporter: biden is taking direct aim at president trump. >> but if we give donald trump eight years in the white house, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are and i cannot stand by and watch that happen. >> reporter: and the former vice president is sounding a theme of progressive patriotism pledging a fight on first principles. >> we can't forget what happened in charlottesville.
7:04 am
even more important, we have to remember who we are. this is america. >> reporter: this morning's announcement coming after months of speculation as biden's campaign in waiting was clearly ramping up. but he's been thinking about it for decades. his late son, battled brain cancer and he urged his father to run. he is the 20th democratic hopeful. and while he is a deeply familiar face to americans he's been in politics for nearly half a century, under president obama dubbed affectionately uncle joe, his old school, up close and personal political style could also be a liability. several women came forward this year describing unwelcome physical contact from biden like touching and kissing. they didn't accuse him of sexual harassment but say it made them feel unequal. biden promised to change with the times and change his style. >> the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset
7:05 am
and i get it. i will be more mindful and respectful of people's personal space. >> reporter: so joe biden will pair his message of fighting progressive populism with a rebuilding the middle class message. one of his first events will be at a local teamsters union hall in pittsburgh, that lunch pail labor union politics he's championed so long. >> he'll focus on taking back pennsylvania, but what a choice by the former vice president, the first word in the video is charlottesville taking on president trump directly and the comments that president trump made coming out of charlottesville. want to show more of the video right now. >> some very fine people on both sides. very fine people on both sides? with those words, the president of the united states assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it, and in that moment, i knew the threat to this nation was unlike
7:06 am
any i had ever seen in my lifetime. >> you know, most of the other democratic candidates have had to spend more time speaking about themselves. as you pointed out, biden so familiar to so many in america. he can go straight to the general election in some ways. >> reporter: that's it exactly. this is a message that unites all democrats and it's an important message for democrats. donald trump injected a new kind of nationalism into american politics, some would call it a reactionary nationalism. make america great again. biden is trying to frame a progressive nationalism that sometimes democrats have been reluctant to make that kind of argument. he is going full bore on it. >> he sure is. terry, thank you very much. wow, a brand new race this morning. >> a very crowded race and already weighing in. see if he can catch up with the fund-raising out there. a lot of people already have a lot of money. >> the first 24 hours is really important with the fund-raising. >> yes and we will see those numbers later. also, former vice president biden will be on "the view" tomorrow, and robin will interview he and his wife on tuesday. we turn to those deadly storms tearing through the
7:07 am
south. reported tornadoes and pounding rain leading to flooding. abc's marcus moore is in dallas with the very latest. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: cecilia, good morning. this deadly storm produced tornadoes and dumped several inches of rain. take a look at the spillway behind me. usually it is very calm here in dallas, but this morning, it looks like a raging river. overnight at least two reported tornadoes ripping through texas, this laundromat in st. augustine gutted. the brick walls completely torn down, and the gas station in ruins. the dark funnel cloud forming over the campus of texas a&m. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: later a twister touching down in bryan blasting out the windows of this home and destroying others. the roof of this barn partially torn off. that same storm dumping rain and sparking flash floods across the state. some parts receiving more than half a foot of rain. in austin this truck overturned in a ditch. rapidly filling with water. watch as these good samaritans band together to flip that truck over. >> oh, my god.
7:08 am
>> reporter: freeing the young driver trapped inside, but for others, tragedy. a woman and her two children killed when their car was swept away by floodwaters. the severe weather impacting thousands across the state and affecting travel. dallas-ft. worth airport reporting 373 flight delays and at least eight cancellations. and at least one school district here in texas has canceled classes here today because of the severe weather, and after two days of severe storms, they are just hoping for a break in this region, janai. >> thanks to marcus. you can see the water behind him. now let's go to rob with the latest on where that storm is heading next. rob, good morning. >> good morning, janai. at least texas getting a break but as you can see the slow-moving system still in louisiana as mentioned louisiana tech hit hard across the northern part of the state an this watch in effect for the next couple of hours as they make their way off towards the east. let's time it out as it pushes east down i-10. we look for severe weather from new orleans over towards tallahassee, biloxi in the mix. likely just strong winds with this but can't rule out a
7:09 am
tornado. certainly some large hail, and this entire system moves up towards the northeast, and it's going to be a bit of a mess here throughout the day tomorrow, george. more on this later. >> thanks, rob. we go overseas to that first ever summit between north korean leader kim jong-un and russian president vladimir putin. the two american rivals meeting after president trump and kim hit a wall. our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz has the details. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. president trump has touted his friendship, his love for kim jong-un, but this morning, kim has a new friend, vladimir putin. just a short time ago, the two leaders both obsessed with their images on the world stage, toasting one another and their shared friendship with kim presenting putin a large, golden sword. putin made clear he supports the u.s. efforts to completely denuclearize the korean peninsula, but how they get there is the sticking point. talks broke down between the u.s. and north korea after the second summit in hanoi.
7:10 am
president trump insisting there will be no sanctions relief until the north makes significant progress in de-nuclearization. kim wants a more step-by-step process. putin said this morning that kim is ready to move forward with talks, but he needs strong security guarantees to do so without explaining exactly what that means. cecelia? >> a lot of questions there. martha, thank you. we turn to this race to contain the terror threat in sri lanka after those easter bombings. this morning, the father of two of the suspected bombers is now under arrest. a abc's james longman is there in columbo with more. good morning, james. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. the hunt goes on here for more suspects as catholic churches suspend all public services for fear of more attacks. 6,500 troops are now on the streets along with 2,000 air force and navy personnel. a successful businessman has been detained who authorities say helped two of his sons carry out these atrocities. one of them runs a copper factory where the bombs may have
7:11 am
been made. nearly 350 people are now confirmed dead, and the pressure is mounting on the government to explain how it could have missed repeated intelligence warnings. a standoff is brewing with the president, asking for the resignation of the defense secretary and police chief. both have yet to do so. there are fears of a backlash against muslims. dark clouds are still hanging over sri lanka. janai? >> all right, james. well,now to that dangerous new milestone in the growing measles outbreak. it's now the worst in the u.s. in nearly 20 years. the cdc says 695 measles cases have been reported in 22 states. abc's gio benitez is at mt. sinai hospital in new york where they're battling this head-on. good morning, gio. >> reporter: that's right, janai, good morning. new york city has some of the most cases in the country and now experts are concerned about how long these outbreaks continue. this morning, it's a record-breaking outbreak. measles, one of the most contagious infectious decides
7:12 am
-- diseases spreading across the country in the worst outbreak since 2000 when measles were eliminated from the u.s. nearly 700 cases have been reported, mostly impacting unvaccinated children who are among the most at risk for serious complications from the virus. >> they'll have high fever, things that are bad that can lead from measles are enreceive -- encephalitis, which is inflammation of the brain, and they can get bad pneumonia as well. >> reporter: meaning infants like 6 month old walter who are too young to receive the vaccine are in harm's way. >> i don't know where he got it from but his immune system is compromised. >> reporter: his mother says walter spent more than a week in the icu after rashes spread across his little body last month. >> it's really frustrating. i mean being walter's age, they rely on herd immunity. they're too young to get vaccinated. >> reporter: the contagious infection hitting adults too. 390 reported cases in new york city including two pregnant women. >> getting measles when you're pregnant is also extremely dangerous. it could affect the baby
7:13 am
adversely, as well. >> reporter: all right, so let's talk about vaccines right now. doctors say children should be getting them around their first birthday with a booster between ages 4 and 6. they say they are very safe, very effective at 93%. cecelia? >> can't say that enough. gio, thank you. turning now to a police confrontation caught on camera that's raising new questions this morning. a police officer is accused of usiing excessive force against 22-year-old woman, and she's now speaking out. steve osunsami is in atlanta with more on this. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, cecilia. we don't see what happens before the officer pulls this young woman over. police say he was responding to a hit-and-run and the police chief this morning says he is disgusted and embarrassed by what happened. >> driver's license, proof of insurance. >> reporter: tuscaloosa police are putting sunshine on this routine traffic stop that turned violent. >> tell you what, go on and step out. >> reporter: police body camera shows one of their officers
7:14 am
making an arrest friday. >> are you serious? have you lost your freaking mind? >> reporter: 22-year-old jhasmynn sheppard is begging the officer not to arrest her. as she turns around it's not clear how, but she ends up on the concrete with the officer on top of her. >> they know what they did was completely uncalled for. >> reporter: sheppard said they used excessive force. >> my face was in the ground. i can't even breath. i'm telling him to get up. i can't breathe. so i'm grabbing. >> reporter: people passing by recorded this cell phone video showing a second officer joining in. one of them beating her with a baton. >> oh. >> reporter: here's what one says when the beating is over. >> send medical this way. >> please, please. >> no. shut your mouth! >> if you do anything other than what you're told to i'll kick you in the teeth. do you understand me? >> reporter: police are investigating. >> i was disappointed in the officers. i was disgusted by what i saw, what i heard and i was embarrassed by it. >> reporter: they've charged this woman with leaving the scene of an accident, resisting
7:15 am
arrest and assault but because of this video authorities are now considering dropping the charges. cecelia? >> wow, it's stunning video indeed. okay, steve, thank you. now to that big day in nashville. the nfl draft football fans will be watching every moment on the edge of their seats to see if and when their favorites get picked. robin is hosting the first round of the draft tonight. back again, hey, robin. >> hi there. we are celebrating also the 100th year of the nfl here in nashville and this is a city that knows how to throw a party. i'm just going to say that. tonight, 32 athletes will start the next chapter in their lives to become professional football players. a total dream come true. >> reporter: tonight, elite athletes will be on the edge of their seats, waiting to hear their names called as millions of fans anxiously watch every minute of the nfl draft. this year all eyes are on kyler murray. >> kyler. >> reporter: the projected
7:16 am
number one pick. >> kyler murray of oklahoma university. >> reporter: the oklahoma quarterback, the heisman trophy winner, is such an amazing athlete that he already has a major league baseball deal. the draft always puts quarterbacks in the spotlight. remember when peyton manning was a number one pick in 1998 going on to win two super bowls but you don't have to be picked first to be dubbed the greatest of all time. this guy turned out to be the 199th pick, but tom brady has managed to pick up more than a few rings over the years, but quarterbacks won't be the only stars in this year's draft, with a lineup heavy on defense. keep your eyes on nick bosa at 6'4", 267 pounds, you can't miss him. for this ohio state defensive lineman, football is the family business. his brother is currently in the nfl and his father and uncle played too. quinnen williams, roll tide, as
7:17 am
a defensive lineman at alabama, winning the outland trophy this season for being the best at his position. and usually does this after he has a sack and has had more than a few. will he have them in the nfl? we'll find that out. more on the nfl draft from here in nashville throughout the morning. and in our next hour, we're going to include the story of a young man who says all of his success on and off the field is thanks to his mother and he can't wait to share his inspiring story. i know you would think, yes, off the field she inspired him and helped. also helped him on the field as well. we'll explain. >> little bit of a tease right there. >> looking forward to that one. >> thank you. a lot of other stories we're following this morning as well including a new twist in that college admissions scandal. lori loughlin right there gave insight into her defense strategy. the big question is will it keep her out of prison? martha stewart has a message for her. plus this morning, selena gloe gomez is getting candid about
7:18 am
her health and a difficult year. the new interview ahead. first back over to rob. good morning, guys. let's talk about this storm that's so slow moving, painfully slow. but these are the fresh pictures that just came in. first time i'm seeing it out of ruston, louisiana. this is where that suspected tornado looks to be. there's certainly damage, potentially a strong one and getting some reports that there could be some people injured so we'll be updating that throughout the day. cedar park, texas, near austin, look at this yesterday. look at the wind blowing the rain sideways, up to 60 miles per hour. we had torrential rains with this and saw the flooding across texas and wind not helping. a lot of wind energy with this. it's now marching down i-10. we mentioned that, and the severe weather threat from baton rouge to new orleans, into nashville will get rain during the draft and rain getting more heavy tomorrow afternoon in through tomorrow evening. pretty strong squall line coming across i-95. time for your hot cities brought to you by febreze fabric refreshener.

7:32 am
good morning, whit. >> reporter: good morning to you. facing possible prison time, lori loughlin and her husband refused to take a plea deal like other defendants including actress felicity huffman. multiple reports now suggesting the couple will fight back arguing they didn't know they were allegedly breaking the law. this morning, new reports hinting to a possible defense for actress lori loughlin and her fashion designer husband mossimo giannulli pleading not guilty to charges of fraud and conspiracy in that college admissions scandal. a source close to the couple tells "people" magazine they just didn't realize that what they were doing was illegal adding they gave money to this consultant not entirely knowing everything that was going to be done. >> you've worked very hard for your success. you should be proud of yourself. >> reporter: the "full house" star, allegedly funneling nearly half a million dollars to the scheme's mastermind rick singer in order to get her daughters into usc as bogus recruits to the crew team. court documents highlight a
7:33 am
wiretapped phone conversation set up by law enforcement agents between singer and loughlin, in which the two apparently agreed to hide their story from the irs if they happened to call. singer saying nothing has been said about the girls, your donations helping the girls get into usc to do crew even though they didn't do crew so nothing like that has been ever mentioned. loughlin eventually responded, so we just have to say we made a donation to your foundation and that's it, end of story? singer, that is correct. >> i don't really care about school as you guys all though. >> reporter: loughlin's daughter, olivia jade, got into the school as an athlete despite never participating. just this week laura janke a former assistant coach at usc, accused of working to create fake athletic profiles for students including olivia jade agreed to plead guilty. the case highlighting examples of wealth and privilege in america. martha stewart who once served prison time for lying to federal authorities weighing in to "entertainment tonight." >> i feel sorry for them.
7:34 am
they might have made a bad mistake. >> reporter: that mistake putting loughlin and her husband in serious legal jeopardy. following the scandal this week usc just announced sweeping changes to its admissions process including reviewing athletic candidates on three different levels and auditing athletic rosters. george? >> whit, thanks very much. we have dan abrams here right now. we all hear from when we're young ignorance is no defense but in this case it may be? >> well, look, you can't say i didn't know the details of the wire fraud law and therefore that's the defense. but you can say as anyone would in this kind of case, i didn't know -- i didn't intend to do it. i wasn't intending to misrepresent or to defraud, et cetera. and intent is a requirement. meaning prosecutors will have to show that they -- in essence knew what they were doing and they were doing it on purpose. >> the facts may get in the way. her husband sent those rowing photos and money directly to the
7:35 am
athletic director. >> yep. that's right. but i would say two things to that. first of all, we need to treat them as two separate defendants. everyone wants to lump them in together and say the couple this and the couple that. they're going to be tried -- they're going to each have their own attorney and will each have their own defenses and one may be different than the other. she may say i didn't know he was doing it, et cetera. and the second piece of this is that they're still going to have to show that they knew what they were doing meaning i think the defense is going to be it sounds like, yes, i was sending in money, i didn't know exactly what it was for. it's not a strong defense for him. but i think that we're getting to a point where everyone is so angry at them and these other defendants that we're losing sight of the real legal defenses that would apply to anyone in this situation because they have had the book thrown at them as a legal matter. >> which is why it's still hard to imagine a deal? >> well, look, it sounds like a deal would require prison time and it sounds like it would be between a year and two years and as a result i wouldn't be
7:36 am
surprised if they say, you know what, let's roll the dice because even if we're convicted, we don't think a judge is going to give them ten years and so the worst case scenario you don't know what it's going to be, maybe would be five years. it's a big difference but you know what, but the reality is i can see why at least she may say, i don't want to cut a deal. doesn't mean it won't happen but it's not crazy. people are treating it like the defense is crazy and crazy she's not pleading. none of it is crazy. >> okay. an dan abrams, thanks very much. a powerful message of support to jayme closs who saved herself from a kidnapper. now six survivors of some of the most infamous kidnapping cases in america are speaking out offering hope in a new lifetime documentary. abc's linsey davis is here with this story. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. they all share agonizing pasts at the hands of abductors but managed to triumph over the most harrowing of circumstances and in this lifetime special called
7:37 am
"smart justice," elizabeth smart who was abducted for nine months brings together six women to help jayme closs and survivors in general. >> i was kidnapped and held captive for four days. >> four days. >> 18 hours. >> two days. >> 17 days. >> 3,321 days. >> reporter: they are all survivors of some of the nation's most notorious abductions brought together by elizabeth smart to share messages of strength and hope to encourage 13-year-old kidnapping victim jayme closs. >> i remember hearing the news and thinking, she did it. another one of us got away. >> jayme survived the unsurvivable. >> nothing prepares you for being kidnapped and nothing prepares you for life after. >> reporter: closs was held captive in 21-year-old jake patterson's remote cabin for 88 days before managing to make an extraordinary escape. >> she was walking towards me crying saying you gotta help me.
7:38 am
you got a -- gotta help me. >> when i first heard about jayme, i was heartbroken. >> reporter: denise huskins whose 2015 abduction was dubbed the gone girl abduction. after police initially called it a hoax. urging closs not to dwell on regre regrets. >> it's hard not to reflect back at what you could have done differently. >> reporter: and gina dejesus one of three held captive by ariel castro in that cleveland house for a decade, also participating. >> that's 14-year-old gina. >> now you're a powerful woman. >> reporter: this sisterhood of survivors bound together by shared experience. >> it doesn't define who you are. >> exactly. >> it shapes you. >> it made me become a really strong woman and made me become a really strong mother. >> i'm just going to hug you for a second. are you okay with hugs? >> smart says that her hope is that any survivor could watch and walk away feeling that they
