7:01 am
numbers, a look at what's at stake in some critical tight races. and a bizarre and disturbing story. breaking overnight, a shooting at a yoga studio. a gunman opening fire in florida killing two people then himself. >> of all places to be at a yoga studio is crazy. >> what we're learning about the victims this morning. the game gone wrong. parents caught on camera throwing punches. the latest in a string of incidents. what authorities are considering doing to try to keep the peace. and alec baldwin arrested. >> trust me, i know things. >> the star known for playing president trump facing charges for an alleged altercation outside his apartment building. what may have started it. hey, good morning. we are now really firmly in the final countdown. >> we sure are.
7:02 am
>> t-minus three days until election day in america. >> and in the feverish run-up to tuesday, we are watching something extraordinary. a campaign battle between the current president donald trump and the former president barack obama who is being unusually critical of his successor. >> we'll have full coverage of the midterms coming up. we want to start with the breaking news. severe weather hitting the east coast right now. look at these submerged cars in pennsylvania. also there, a transformer exploding in the middle of the storm. rob is with us covering it all. rob, good morning to you. >> good morning, whit. it has been a rough week with this very slow-moving front but yesterday finally getting an upper level push of energy to kick it off to the east producing yet another line of damaging storms. this morning, extreme weather striking the east coast. killing two people in baltimore. gusting winds and heavy rain causing a building to partially collapse at this amazon facility. also in maryland, strong winds doing damage to the roof of this t.j. maxx store, and overnight in pennsylvania torrential rains
7:03 am
causing flash flooding. cars submerged in high waters prompting rescues like this. an elderly woman helped from her stranded car and this couple from a flooded park. severetos riing thugrida, four the bay area bringing damaging winds that toppled trees and knocked out power. >> right there look at it. it's right there. >> a resident near tampa capturing this video of a tornado spinning nearby a parking lot. debris flying in all directions. more dramatic cell phone video of a fast-moving twister making its way across a busy road and this car driving right into it. barely got through that one. dangerous stuff, no doubt about that. the threat for severe thunderstorms today at least is diminishing. across eastern new england we're seeing some of that rough weather with heavy rain. fall rates, 1 to 2 inches per hour of rainfall. flooding will continue to be an issue over the next few hours.
7:04 am
but then windy conditions. high wind warnings up for eastern massachusetts and parts of coastal new england as this low will actually intensify as it heads up into canada and wind gusts later this afternoon and evening will gust to over 20, 30, 40 miles per hour from philly to albany especially through boston and portland, maine, and that will be enough to take some tree limbs and potentially power lines down and yet another couple of systems that will bring more severe weather later in the week. we'll talk about that in a few minutes. >> robert, thank you. we'll be back to you in just a few minutes. back now to the midterms. just three days away. the president had two rallies yesterday, two more today, and he plans to keep this pace up. >> he has some big name competition out on the stump with former president obama hitting the trail hard as well as former vp joe biden and oprah winfrey. we have team coverage this morning to kick things off with terry moran who is in indiana where trump rallied last night. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, eva and, guys, you know, midterm elections are usually pretty
7:05 am
low-key affairs, but this one feels like a presidential campaign out here, and for awhile, democrats thought they had the enthusiasm advantage, but if there is a blue wave t t president obama are both out on the campaign trail stumping for their parties, and both are stressing the gravity of tuesday's vote. >> this election will decide whether we build on the extraordinary prosperity that we've unleashed or whether we let the radical democrats take control of congress. >> the stakes this time really are that high. the consequences of any of us staying home are profound. >> reporter: news of the booming economy came as a shot of adrenaline for president trump and the republicans. >> and, by the way, how were
7:06 am
those jobs numbers today? how were they? >> reporter: friday's jobs report shows 250,000 jobs were added in october and wages are now rising at the fastest clip in nearly a decade. once reluctant to speak out against his successor, former president obama is now responding to those record numbers trying to claim credit for them in georgia. >> when the republicans start talking now about, oh, look how great the economy is, where did you think that started? >> reporter: trump and obama are sparring on immigration too as trump continues to leverage the central american caravan as a way to stoke fear prior to the election. and they want these caravans full of illegal aliens to flood into our country, overwhelming your schools, depleting your resources and endangering your communities. >> they're telling you that the existential threat to america is a bunch of poor refugees a thousand miles away.
7:07 am
>> reporter: back now with terry live, and, terry, looking at these ra obama versus trump, this isn't something we normally see, a former president taking on a sitting president so aggressively. will this help or hurt democrats? >> reporter: well, that's the $64,000 question. it's not unprecedented. harry truman was pretty ferocious about eisenhower. but it's rare. the problem for democrats is there's no other leader that really captures the party's enthusiasm like barack obama and so they're using him to motivate the base but he also alienates some voters and there's this, america is a tomorrow country. president obama is yesterday's man and so there are risks for democrats in doing this, eva. >> terry moran in indianapolis, thank you so much. as the president talks tough on immigration, several caravans of migrants are slowing trying to make their way to the u.s. border. abc's marcus moore is in mexico speaking with those migrants about their long journey. marcus, good morning. >> reporter: well, whit, good morning. the members of this caravan have
7:08 am
now started the next leg of their trip to the north and this morning we see men, women and children who you see just behind me here are part of this caravan that's been going on now for several weeks and they were up early this morning and have now begun the journey to a town 50 miles from where we are right now they arrive in the small mexican town of sayula. members of this so-called caravan are about to begin the next leg of their journey to the north. >> this is the only way they can be heard. >> reporter: president trump ordered 5,000 troops to the mexico border. >> if it was an invasion i don't
7:09 am
think kids are invading. the majority is hard working people. >> reporter: for many their goal is to reach the u.s. where immigration has been made a central issue just days before the midterm election, perhaps driving scores of early voters to the polls and prompting strong rhetoric on all sides. >> now, they're sending our brave troops, they're sending them down there for a political stunt. >> reporter: after a second caravan clashed with mexican border patrol agents near guatemala throwing rocks, president trump appeared to threaten that similar activity along the u.s. border might be met with gunfire. >> we're not going to put up with that. they want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back. we're going to consider -- and i told them to consider it a rifle. >> reporter: but then the president seemed to back away from those comments. >> i didn't say shoot, but they do that with us, they're going to be arrested for a long time. >> reporter: cindy ramirez of honduras tells me she and her sister cry every night hoping they'll be allowed into the u.s. and with tears in her eyes she
7:10 am
says all she wants is the best life possible for her kids. and she is just one of the many caravan that are trying to get a better life for their children, and you can see this caravan as it works its way down the road here in veracruz. there's not been, though, a lot of organization. no single leader telling this o. but certainly you get a sense that many here are simply determined to make it to the north. eva. >> marcus moore in mexico this morning, thank you. immigration one of the big campaign talkers as voters get ready to cast their ballots in these midterm elections. >> and large crowds are already lining up to vote early. abc's white house correspondent tara palmeri has more. >> reporter: this morning, early voting for the midterm elections is shattering records. more than 30 million people have already cast votes as of november 2nd. at this point four years ago, just 17 million people had already voted. celebrities making the late push like leonardo dicaprio and brad
7:11 am
pitt unveiling last-minute ads about what's at stake. >> all of these races and ballot measures are a chance to decide on the direction of our country. >> hello! >> reporter: even oprah out in georgia campaigning for democrat stacey abrams. >> hi, oprah. >> how are you? >> reporter: if elected abrams would be the first black woman to hold the office of governor. there are a record number of women running. 16 on the ballot for governor, 237 for the house and 23 for the senate. the turnout on track to make history. at least 4 million people have already voted in texas, surpassing the state's total turnout in 2014. in the battleground state of florida, democrats and republicans are casting their ballots at nearly equal rates. the president on a final campaign blitz and feeling optimistic. >> if your party loses the house, will you change your agenda? >> well, we're going to see. i think we're doing well. certainly we're doing very well on the senate, and i think we'll also do well in the house. we're going to see.
7:12 am
>> reporter: just a few hours later the president was already changing his tune admitting for the first time at a rally in west virginia that the republicans could lose the house. dan. >> that's a really interesting admission. tara palmeri, thank you for joining us from the white house. joining us now in the flesh for a change, abc news chief political analyst matthew dowd. great to see you. >> great to be here. >> usually you're via satellite. >> from wimberley, texas. >> a hot state in terms of the campaign right now. you just heard donald trump said for the first time apparently that it's possible the republicans could lose the house. that's what the polls are indicating. the polls also indicate the republicans are likely to retain the senate, however, in 2016 the polls were not super reliable in some ways. so what should we believe? >> yeah, i said in 2016 that hillary clinton had a 90% chance of being president of the united states, so we know how that goes. i think, first of all, they should watch abc news on tuesday. that's the first thing people should do. i think the thing to pay attention to in 2016 the national polls were right.
7:13 am
they basically said hillary would win the popular vote and she won the popular vote. so those were right. i think state by state and district by state we have no idea. and as tara just said, the early voting is setting all kinds of records. texas, where i just came from, has already voted more people early than voted in the entire election in 2014, and all the numbers that are up seem to be among young voters, latino voters, and women are setting records in voting in this election, so i think it's going to be a long night. i don't think we'll know for sure. but nobody has any idea how to set a model for this type of election turnout. >> so just to put a fine point on this, we do have models show it's likely but not guaranteed the republicans keep the senate. the democrats take the house but you're saying anything goes. >> well, anything goes because i think that because of this turnout that we're seeing, it -- we could be off in many, many different polls by 3%, 4%, 5%. >> very quickly, the president has these new economic numbers. really impressive economic numbers that he can justifiably tout, and yet he seems to be
7:14 am
putting most of his emphasis on the caravan. why do you think that is? >> he has the best economy going in the first midterm in 60 years the best economy for a president going in 60 years, and they're not talking about it. i think this president goes to rallies and understands when he talks about the economy, his crowd doesn't get all ginned up. when he talks about immigration and when he talks about the caravan and when he talks about the democrats, they get very excited, and the reason is, we talked about it earlier, is immigration is the number one issue for republicans. it's not among all voters but among republicans it is and so i think the president is going to keep pushing this. i think he thinks fear is more of a motivator than success in this. i disagree with this because i think this election is going to be decided by independent voters who have decided all the elections in the last 25 years and independent voters i think would be much more key to say, oh, yeah, the economy is going well. why should we change things at this point, but this
7:15 am
president has appealed to his base since he got into office since his inaugural address and has done it every single day and doesn't seem to be giving up on it in the last 72 hours. >> matt dowd. always great to see you in person. >> great to be here. >> excellent, and we should say as matt said, be sure to join us for full coverage on election night. george stephanopoulos, our chief anchor, will be anchoring, and he'll be joined by our team including matt and david muir and others at 8:00 eastern right here on abc. matt, thanks again. >> great to be here. we have an update on the case against the man sending pipe bombs to leaders. cesar sayoc appearing in court and agreeing to be transferred from florida to new york to face criminal charges as another suspicious package is found. and also this this morning, newly released body cam footage show police in boca raton questioning the alleged serial mail bomber two months ago in the same white van where authorities believe he made those bombs. police say sayoc's i.d. checked
7:16 am
out when they stopped him so they sent him on his way. turning now to a deadly shooting in florida. >> a gunman opening fire inside a yoga studio killing two people and injuring several others before turning the gun on himself. abc's zachary kiesch is here with that story. zachary, good morning. >> reporter: whit, dan, eva, good morning to you. it's a terrible story. last night during class the shooter walked in. many of the students inside that yoga studio tried to fight back, and now police are looking for a motive. overnight a chaotic scene inside that hot yoga class when the shooter opened fire. first responders racing to the scene. >> this is the worst. it is random. there's no way to bring sense to a senseless crime. >> reporter: authorities say it all unfolded just after 5:30 p.m. when 40-year-old scott paul beierle walked into the studio with a gun killing two women and injuring several others. >> we are working diligently to try to make a connection between him and any of the victims. >> reporter: police are now saying that people in the class fought back trying not only to
7:17 am
save themselves but other people. one man was pistol whipped. victims ran to nearby businesses desperate for help. >> the gentleman who came in apparently tried to fight off the attacker, and he had quite a few wounds on his face, i guess, from trying to help. >> reporter: the two who were killed connected to florida state university. faculty member 61-year-old dr. nancy van vessem and student, 21-year-old maura binkley. community members who witnessed the aftermath in shock. >> you don't expect it, especially being such a calming place and for that to happen of all places to be a yoga studio is crazy. >> police are working the crime scene and continue to collect evidence. so far they've interviewed dozens of witnesses and, you know, if you guys have ever been to one of these hot yoga classes, it's about growth, it's about coming toget's tditionall real se zone. >> i think we've all been to hot yoga classes at least here and
7:18 am
it's incredible to think that this would happen there. thank you very much. morning. authorities looking into the crash of an indonesian airliner announcing new progress in their investigation. abc's julia mcfarlane joins us from london and our bureau there with the very latest. julia, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. yes, divers have told indonesian authorities that two engines and more landing gear have been spotted on the sea floor. that plane crashed in more than 100 feet of water and strong currents have really complicated the search for clues. earlier this week, however, there was a breakthrough. the flight data recorder was recovered on thursday, and now a low ping signal has been detected by sonar. now, officials believe that this could be the black box voice recorder, and it may have audio from inside the cockpit. now, officials hope that as more discoveries are made, it may explain why the jet crashed on monday. 189 people were on board that
7:19 am
aircraft, all of whom were killed. let's get it back over to rob marciano who is taking a look at what we talked about at the top of the show, the next threat of severe weather coming now for central and southern u.s. hey, rob. >> hi, dan. that's exactly right. we're in november. the jet stream is getting stronger, so this system already into the plains will come together in the next 24 hours and by tomorrow morning this time in through little rock, memphis, up through chicago could see strong thunderstorms and pushes off towards the east into nashville and atlanta, georgia, and the one behind that looks to be even stronger coming in monday, early tuesday and an enhanced risk of severe weather hera cross the midsouth in through nashville as well and we could see strong tornadoes out of t over. good saturday morning. i'm lisa argen waking up to a lot of sunshine. and temperatures today well above average. we have the red flag warning in effect. norngt bay mountains east bay hills. fire danger. lots of warm temperatures around
