good morning, america. new overnight, lochte's apology. the swimmer says he's sorry for his behavior after a night of partying in rio. meanwhile, one of his teammates is pointing fingers. what he says really happened the night they were detained by armed security guards. campaign shake-up. do out. paul manafort leaving team trump as the candidate tries to reshape his image visiting flood-ravaged louisiana. >> you'll be fine. >> plus, trump's new message to african-american voters. >> what the hell do you have to lose? a new zika warning this morning. the virus reaching one of the
transmissions linked to the miami beach area. >> we're going to do everything in our power to make this city safe. >> pregnant women and their partners told to stay away. and golden moment. a do-over for team usa pays off but it is heartbreak on the track for the men's team. why their bronze medal was taken away. >> there's usain bolt. >> and for usain bolt, three more golds. why he's running away with history this morning. hey, good morning, everybody. paula is offhi very, very, very happy -- >> three veries. >> she asked me to add a very. very happy to have cecilia vega in this weekend. we should tell you, a lot of new developments in rio this morning. usain bolt, the fastest man alive, making even more olympic history overnight. his win in the 4x100 relay gives him an historic triple-triple as they call it taking the same three gold medals in three straight olympic games. that is for those of you who are
olympic gold medals. >> good math. you didn't need a calculator for that. >> i had an abacus. and for the women, it was redemption for the women's 4x100 relay team granted a do-over in thursday's preliminary heat but they went on to take the gold overnight. an amazing accomplishment. >> so, lots of good stuff but we'll start with a decidedly less uplifting olympic story, the new apology from swimming star ryan lochte after that raucous night in rio. >> some of it was caught on video. lochte and his teammates init at gunpoint at this gas station, but authorities and witnesses now say the athletes were not actually victims, but vandals. abc's matt gutman is in rio covering all the latest twists in this developing story. matt, good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, cecilia and dan. those four swimmers are now out of rio, and for the first week of this, they all stuck together in silence, but now one of them is speaking out for the first time.
who is pointing the finger at ryan lochte saying that it was he who pulled down that poster at that gas station and then mouthed off to those armed security guards. >> anything you'd like to say? >> reporter: this morning jimmy feigen, the last of the four olympic swimmers caught on camera allegedly vandalizing a rio gas station, has left brazil. that as the swimmers who brazil accused of providing false statements to police now break their silence. overnight gunnar bentz, the youngest of the swimmers, saying it was onl second most decorated male olympian ever, who vandalized the station after they had been partying. in this video you can see a man tear down a poster, then you see armed security guards detain them. at this point bentz says ryan stood up and began to yell at the guards. after jack and i both tugged at him in an attempt to get him to sit back down. eventually a good samaritan translated and the swimmers gave the guards about $50 for the damage. bentz's statement follows lochte's friday apology on
writing "i should have been much more responsible in how i handled myself and for that i am sorry to my teammates, my fans, my fellow competitors, my sponsors and the hosts of this great event. initially lochte denied anything happened, then he told nbc -- >> these guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing, just a police badge, they pulled us over. >> reporter: lochte's lawyer insisting that his client's apology should not be viewed as an admission of guilt. bez, briefly detained by authorities before being allowed to return home. more than the other swimmers, there is big money on the line for lochte who has deals with speedo and ralph lauren worth a reported million dollars. so, when does this all leave the swimmers? jimmy feigen had to pay $11,000 to a charity here just to get his passport back, and there may be more fallout even if they don't get into legal trouble.
apologizing to rio and brazil for what happened and saying that it will thoroughly review the incident. dan, cecilia. >> matt, thank you for your reporting. let's pick up on that question of consequences now with espn reporter julie foudy who is also in rio. julie, good morning. i wonder how damaging is this going to be for the careers and the endorsement deals of ryan lochte and these other swimmers? >> dan, when you know and you see sally jenkins with "the washington post" in her lead line to her story ever rang, you know it's going to be damaging and really when you think about it on the pool it's going to be damaging to the brand but in the pool, the suspension, whatever usa swimming does, is largely going to be irrelevant. they're not going to suspend him for another four years through the next olympics. they maybe give him six months and he has to skip worlds. but the damage is with the united states olympic committee, because here's the uso whochlt who's been trying to convince
american because we want to host the 2024 olympic games and that's what we're going to see is how will this play out with the ioc and the usoc for 2024. >> julie, you also wonder if there's damage being done to all these other olympians who are coming home, they should be celebrating and being celebrated. is this overshadowing everything they achieved there? >> absolutely, and that is really the saddest part of all this because thursday night, for example, ashton eaton wins the decathlon, back-to-back olympic gold medals for the american. this incredibly historic moment and what is everyone talking about, ryan lochte. and the swimmers or even if you go to usa swimming, they won 33 medals at this game, and they can't change that narrative now. they can't get back in the pool so i think that is the saddest part of this whole story. these great role models and olympians not getting the coverage they should be getting. >> it is sad, julie. thank you. we do, though, want to move on to that extreme weather in kansas overnight. heavy rains causing widespread
waterlogged streets and in louisiana, that catastrophic flooding is now being called the worst natural disaster since hurricane sandy. rob is back from covering it all. hey, rob, good morning. >> good morning, cecilia. we'll start with the larger system that's really encompassing the entire u.s. from the canadian border down to mexico. these storms had a lot of moisture with a lot of flood potential in them and we certainly saw that last night in wichita. overnight, dangerous flash flooding in kansas. streets becoming rivers as residents there waist deep water. the area overcome by 5 to 7 inches in just a few hours and water even reaching the doorsteps of homes and swallowing cars. these kansas floods coming in the wake of the devastation in east baton rouge that killed at least 13 people. new drone video capturing the catastrophic damage left behind. authorities now saying 58% of the parish was flooded and that nearly 4,000 remain homeless and
to know about longer term housing options, as well. and we're in the process of working diligently and around the clock to assess those options. >> reporter: over 110,000 homes valued at over $20 billion are in the flood-affected zones and that includes jim jobe's house. he's been through 11 floods but this time he says there's no way to rebuild. >> my house was as nice as it's ever been. i'm losing it, and i'm sorry. i >> your heart just goes out to those people. a long, painful recovery ahead. today shouldn't have a tremendous amount of rain in louisiana. this front is going to stay mostly north. i think texas actually, you're going to see a lot of rain in the next couple of days, especially austin to san antonio. could see 3 or 5 or more inches of rain. flash flood watches out for that part of texas through sunday. and also some severe weather potentially across parts of northern michigan, chicago, i think you'll see some showers. this has very fall-like air behind it so it'll start to feel good across parts of the country.
dan. >> rob, thank you. so much pain on the ground in louisiana, and donald trump is now leaping into the fray touching down in the disaster zone and taking aim at president obama, this as the candidate deals with another campaign shake-up. chairman paul manafort is out and abc's mary bruce is on the story from our l.a. bureau. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. well, dan, trump's never exactly fit the mold of a traditional campaign, but this morning he's left without a single top adviser who has ever run a presidential campaign after this latest makeover. this morning trump's campaign chairman is out. paul manafort resigning amid a massive campaign shake-up, tanking polls and controversy about his ties to russia. >> i think my father didn't want to be distracted by whatever things that paul was dealing with. >> reporter: that distraction coming as trump makes a major campaign reset including that rare mea culpa. >> sometimes you say the wrong thing.
or not, i regret it. >> reporter: but he's still not calling it an apology when pressed by abc's tom llamas. >> was that an apology? >> well, they have to take it as they see it. >> reporter: trump making a presidential-like visit to flood-ravaged louisiana handing out provisions showcasing his compassionate side. >> you're going to rebuild. >> i just got back from a tour of the devastation in louisiana. perhaps you can tell by the way i'm dressed. >> r president for not visiting too. >> obama ought to get off the golf course and get down there. >> reporter: speaking to a mostly white crowd in michigan trump urged african-american voters to give him a chance. >> you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. what the hell do you have to lose? >> reporter: clinton responding tweeting, this is so ignorant, it's staggering. now, the white house has announced the president will
but obama has been blasted for not going sooner, especially given the amount of devastation. but the white house says he didn't want his presence to distract from the ongoing recovery efforts. clinton has given a similar reason for not visiting. >> obama perhaps not helped by those images of him on the golf course. mary, thank you. let's bring in abc news political analyst matthew dowd now, who is in austin, texas. let's talk about the trump campaign. two-part question here. will the exit of paul manafort right the ship and i guess st metaphors, who is actually captaining the ship right now? >> well, it's never a good sign within the last six months you have two reorganizations and we're 80 days out from this campaign so it's never a good sign. obviously they want to have an organization that's efficient but who is in charge? to me it deminds me of "iron man." when iron man hires pepper potts to be the ceo, we know who is in charge, it's tony stark. donald trump is in charge of this campaign to matter who he has at the helm of it.
>> exactly. we can always count on you for that, matt. >> gwyneth paltrow, we have to give something to gwyneth paltrow. >> okay, let's look at this shift that happened this week. trump on teleprompter, a conciliatory donald trump. is this the right strategy that he needs to take to reverse these poll numbers? we are just 11 weeks out from voting. >> well, i think he needs to be authentic to who he is but also he needs to be disciplined which he hasn't been in the course of this. it reminds me a little bit of the wild west here in texas back years ago, you checked your guns at the city limits so basically when you walked in the saloon you didn't shoot yourself. donald trump has to figure out a way not to shoot himself. that's what i think this is about. keep in mind, cecilia, that if -- whoever this campaign is about is losing. donald trump wants to make it about hillary. hillary wants to make it about donald trump, so donald trump needs to be disciplined enough that this campaign becomes about hillary clinton. >> matt dowd with the texas talk this morning. thank you, matt. we want to turn now to an alarming development in the
pregnant women now being told to avoid traveling to miami beach, a major tourist destination. abc's eva pilgrim has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, zika virus hits the south florida vacation destination, the very popular city of miami beach. >> we're going to do everything in our power to make this city safe. >> reporter: the state announcing a new zika hot zone, five new patients sickened after a mosquito bite. two live in the county. the other three tourists. florida's governor drawing a box area where infected mosquitoes are spreading the virus. >> we've already authorized over $26 million in state funds, and we will continue to allocate whatever is needed to fight zika. >> reporter: the virus threatening the county's $24 billion a year tourism industry, all inside this newly marked hot zone. >> so you and your husband -- >> reporter: vanessa garcia is five months pregnant and baby-sits at miami beach hotels. she spoke with abc's steve osunsami.
any mosquito bite, especially here in florida, is so easy to catch this virus. >> reporter: the new area less than seven miles from wynwood where about two dozen cases have been transmitted starting mid-july. the cdc issuing a new warning, to pregnant women and their partners, avoid travel not just to the two hot zones but anywhere in miami-dade county. and there are about 20,000 pregnant women living in miami-dade county right now, doctors urging them to take all the necessary precautions, wear bug spray, long sleeves any time they go outside. and it's really important, especially when you consider the county has seven other active investigations that are going on outside of these two marked areas. >> a lot going on there. it's stressful enough to be pregnant, not that i'm speaking from personal experience, but to be worrying about zika at the same time. it's a lot. eva, thank you. a lot of other news overnight, and for that, as always, we turn to dr. ron claiborne.
>> dan, good morning to you. cecilia, robert, good morning to you. good morning, everyone. we begin in southern california with the so-called blue cut wildfire that has now destroyed almost 100 homes and more than 200 buildings. firefighters in san bernardino working around the clock now trying to contain the blaze. it started back on tuesday. thousands evacuated from their homes as heat and high winds fuel that fire which already charred more than 37,000 acres. and what could have been a very dangerous situation at sea, a navy nuclear submarine carrying ballistic missiles colliding with another navy vessel off the coast of washington state. the navy now reporting that the "uss louisiana" did not sustain any major damage and nobody was injured in that incident. the submarine and the boat are both returning to shore. the navy is investigating. a new video this morning from inside a deadly bus crash in new jersey showing emergency crews moving through the wreckage right after that crash, two new jersey transit buses colliding at an intersection in newark friday morning leaving one of the drivers and another
