pump. ♪ can't get enough ♪ and "bridgerton," round 2 is making a big splash. the record-breaking show's huge return wowing fans around the globe. >> genius idea. >> yes, that is why i thought of it. >> we hear from one of the stars, the diamond herself this morning. and we do say good morning, america, as always. a lot to get to this morning including that stunning news about bruce willis, the actor diagnosed with aphasia. dr. ashton will join us with more on that ahead. >> a lot of people are thinking of him this morning. but we're going to begin with the storm slamming parts of the country. more than two dozen tornadoes touched down in the south overnight causing widespread damage. >> all of this as a dangerous storm system moves east. we're going to go to ginger in hard hit jackson, mississippi, tracking it all.
good morning, ginger. >> reporter: michael, it was vicious line that spun up tornadoes that did damage just like this. jason, from our drone above the casualties that we had. this is just one spot. over eight states picking up the pieces this morning and it's ongoing now. >> can anybody hear me? >> reporter: overnight, the eerie search for survivors in southeast mississippi, ringing like the sirens had blared for mlis of people across the deep south are waking up and battling the impacts of severe storms, 27 tornadoes reported so far in seven states. more than 190,000 without power. in mcclain, mississippi, roofs unlatching and trees toppling into homes. this one crashing down in the governor's mansion in jackson.
more than 350 people seeking shelter in this safe room built to withstand 250-mile-per-hour winds. the same storm passing through northwest arkansas early wednesday. with it, an ef-3 tornado whipping through springdale with 145-mile-per-hour winds leaving seven people injured, several buildings and cars destroyed. in louisiana, those extreme winds causing a pileup on the highway. damage like this is still possible yet this morning. there have been or the fay doe watches from north florida all the way up into georgia and we have seen damage in the florida panhandle. now we're going to see more of this up the whole east coast, because the risk area includes places like charleston, raleigh, and just outside of new york city, including new york city, damaging wind is going to be the main threat tonight. by 7:00, 8:00, depending on your location you could end up seeing
those gusty winds that flip things over. plan ahead now. michael? >> all right, we'll be paying attention as well, thank you. george? we get the latest on the war in ukraine. as russian forces struggle to take control of the country, u.s. and uk officials now claim that vladimir putin has been misinformed by his advisers about how badly things are going. foreign correspondent james longman reports from kyiv. good morning, james. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, george. we just heard a huge explosion in kyiv just north of where we are. now you can hear the sounds of air sirens. we heard what sounded like a missile traveling through the air. we saw the black, black smoke rising there. definitely putting the city on high alert. this morning, u.s. officials believe vladimir putin is being misinformed about russia's poor military performance by advisers too afraid to tell him the truth.
>> one of the achilles heels of autocracies is you don't have people in those systems who speak truth to power or who have the ability to speak truth to power. >> reporter: declassified intelligence saying that putin feels misled by his defense ministry, which didn't even tell him conscripts were among those fighting and dying in ukraine. >> we've seen them short of weapons and morale refusing to carry out orders, sabotaging their own equipment and even accidentally shooting down their own aircraft. >> reporter: russia has sought to hide the truth of this war from the very beginning. >> the u.s. believes at least 10,000 russian troops have died in this war, but russia doesn't tell its own people the truth about what's happening, and so ukraine has set up a hotline at this secret location to tell russian families about the fate of their loved ones. they've had threats here from russian state security so we're hiding this woman's identity. she tells me that hundreds of calls a day, many mothers who didn't know their sons had gone to war. she senses fear down the line, but also feels anger. they want to hear their son was burned in a crematorium so they
can stop feeling guilty, she says. as we're talking a lady got emotional recounting a story where she's got a phone call from the fiancee of a russian soldier, and she's crying on the phone saying, i'm so sorry. not all russians feel this way about your country. >> reporter: their efforts an integral part of ukraine's defense. undermining russia's propaganda narrative. claims about drastically reducing military activity in the north labeled spin by the pentagon, but images from kyiv and chernihiv telling a very different story. bombardments ongoing in irpin, a key suburb miles outside the capital, and in chernihiv, this video shows the aftermath of a russian strike on a local market. president biden speaking with president zelenskyy on an hour-long call saying the u.s. will provide the ukrainian government with $500 million in direct budgetary aid. i've told president biden what ukraine needs, i was as sincere as possible with him. u.s. aid is essential for us. in other regions of ukraine the russian assault relentless, the besieged port city of mariupol in ruins, bombed out homes cover the city with no gas and power
some residents now forced outside to cook what little food is available to them. in the city, a red cross warehouse seen in this photo struck by bombardments and refugee numbers are climbing. over 4 million ukrainians forced to flee this country since the invasion began. half of those children. russia been saying they want to refocus their attention to the east of the country, this attack now confirms the fears many ukrainians have, they don't believe russia when they say they want to move their attention away from kyiv, the capital city. george? martha -- let's bring in martha raddatz. we just heard that denial there from russia, but u.s. and uk officials clearly believe that putin is in a bubble. >> reporter: they sure do, george. no one likes to give a president ba, even ia democry, but imagine trying to tell vladimir putin, a brutal
autocrat, that his invasion has been a disaster and whether he knows it or not or the russian people are being largely kept in the dark, this is the kind of information that the people will eventually find out. you may censor the news, but if you lose more than 10,000 soldiers, your neighbor's son, your friend's son, that word will spread through cities and towns and the big question, why did the u.s. declassify this information? officials already believe putin is becoming more paranoid and angry with his close circle of advisers not trusting them especially after the u.s. regularly released intelligence about russian invasion plans, so putin at this point has to be worried there is no one he can trust in his close circle and among his military commanders and that could lead to even bigger mistakes than the military has already made. >> and martha, what more do we know about the russian claims they're scaling back military operations? >> reporter: they really don't think they're scaling them back. they're moving them around. they're resupplying and reinforcing their troops in other areas because around kyiv as we know it has been a disaster. they've kind of given up there and they're using different means now, george.
>> martha raddatz, thanks very much. robin? we know that the war has driven up the price of gas. the national average sitting at $4.24 a gallon this morning, but help may be on the way. president biden is considering a plan that would ease prices. senior white house correspondent mary bruce has more on that for us. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. yeah, president biden has been under growing pressure to do more to combat these soaring gas prices and now we've learned that as soon as today the president could announce he's tapping into the oil reserve, possibly releasing about a million barrels of oil a day for the next several months. now, the markets this morning are already reacting to this news, oil prices this morning are down roughly 5%. americans consume about 20 million barrels a day and there are roughly 570 million barrels currently of crude in the reserve. now, this all comes, of course, as biden's popularity has been tumbling as we have seen inflation hit a 40-year high and he's hoping that this can help rein in these soaring gas prices which have only spiked even more
since russia invaded ukraine. this announcement could happen this afternoon when the president is set to deliver remarks here at the white house on his plan to ease some of the pain at the pump. robin. >> see what he has to say, all right, mary, thank you. george. we're going to get the latest now on chris rock. the comedian took the stage last night in his first show since the oscars. this comes as the academy is saying that will smith was actually asked to leave the ceremony after he slapped rock but he refused. t.j. holmes here with that story. >> good morning. chris rock was wiping away tears just moments after he got on stage because he got two minutes of a rousing standing ovation from a very supportive crowd, all waiting to hear what he had to say about sunday. he didn't say much because he says he's not quite ready to yet. comedian chris rock back on stage in front of a soldout crowd overnight in boston. >> how was your weekend? >> reporter: in this audio
obtained by "variety," rock for the first time publicly addresses that slap by will smith at the oscars. >> i don't have a bunch of [ bleep ] about what happened. i'm still kind of processing what happened. so at some point i'll talk about that [ bleep ]. >> reporter: this as the academy reveals smith was asked to leave the awards ceremony after the assault but refused. >> will smith just smacked the [ bleep ] out of me. >> reporter: the academy has now started disciplinary proceedings saying in a statement, things unfolded in a way we could not have anticipated and we also recognize we could have handled the situation differently. vowing to take action against smith for his behavior which could include suspension, expulsion or other sanctions. the academy also saying to chris rock, mr. rock, we apologize to you for what you experienced on our stage and thank you for your resilience in that moment. >> it was sickening. it was absolutely sick -- i physically felt ill and i'm still a little traumatized. >> reporter: oscar host wanda sykes appearing on "ellen,"
called the academy's decision to allow smith to stay seated in the front of the show gross. >> this is just the wrong message. you know, like you assault somebody, you get escorted out the building and that's it. >> reporter: smith has apologized for the incident, calling his behavior unacceptable and inexcusable, but sykes says the three hosts also deserve an apology but have only received one from rock. >> i saw chris, you know, at guy's party, and as soon as i walked up to him, the first thing he said was, i'm so sorry. i'm like, why are you apologizing? he's like, it was supposed to be your night. >> it was and they have gotten great reviews for the job that they did, the hosts. wanda sykes there, ever the comedian, she said she was disappointed that will smith wasn't taken out in part because she had a joke ready because when he won for best actor she wanted to be able to go up there and say, unfortunately, will could not be with us tonight. she wanted to be able to do that, but back to chris rock, there were tense moments. we had producers in there. tense moments at the show. there was an altercation.
a heckler nothing related to will smith but everybody on edge. security had to come out and be on stage, increased security presence in the aisle and some even anti-will smith chants broke out in the audience so just everybody a little on edge last night. >> you were there. did you see any evidence at all? anybody talking about the idea that will smith was asked to leave? >> no, oh, no, no. everyone was saying he should have, absolutely, he should have like, why in the world is he still sitting there laughing enjoying the oscars at that moment. to everybody's just confusion, why he was still in the building. so a lot of answers about that . we got the latest now on the senate confirmation of judge preme cot.own jacksofo thprocess heading into the homestretch and we're learning that at least one republican senator will vote yes. congressional correspondent rachel scott tracking this on capitol hill for us. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: robin, good morning and this is the bipartisan support that the white house was hoping for. just days after the tense and
combative confirmation hearings played out here on capitol hill senator susan collins of maine becoming the first republican senator to announce their support for judge jackson. it's a sign that collins wasn't exactly buying the attacks from some republicans that judge jackson is soft on crime. it's also a step away from just how politicized this process has become. when justice amy coney barrett was confirmed to the bench she was the first justice in 150 years not to receive a vote from the opposing party. democrats certainly do not need any republican support and, in fact, only a handful are keeping an open mind including senator mitt romney who told me he has not yet made a decision. democrats want to move this along quickly putting her on track to be confirmed by the senate by easter. robin. >> it does seem that way. all right, rachel, thank you. michael. robin, now to the federal probe into hunter biden over his taxes. sources tell abc news it has intensified in recent weeks with
the grand jury hearing testimony about the business dealings of the president's son. chief justice correspondent pierre thomas is in washington with the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: michael, good morning. today there's mounting evidence that the justice department's investigation into the tax affairs and financial dealings of the president's son has been intensifying. sources telling abc news a steady spate of witnesses has been appearing before a federal grand jury seated in wilmington, delaware, with more expected in the coming weeks. the target, hunter biden. this as the fbi and federal prosecutors focus on hunter biden's tax payments and his work overseas including business deals in china and his ties to ukrainian energy giant burisma. according to sources among the critical questions, did hunter biden follow the rules and register as a lobbyist for a foreign entity? biden served on the burisma board when his father was vice president, something he admitted to abc's amy robach was a
mistake. >> at the time you never -- you never thought, this might not look right. >> you know what, i'm a human. you know what, did i make a mistake, well, maybe in the grand scheme of things, yeah, but did i make a mistake based upon some unethical lapse, absolutely not. >> reporter: republicans in recent days pushing for more scrutiny of hunter biden. during his confirmation hearings attorney general merrick garland vowed there would be no white house interference into this. it will be one of the most scrutinized cases during garland's time in office. guys? >> certainly will. pierre, thank you. you know, sometimes a loss is actually a win. overnight, the u.s. men's national soccer team clinching their spot in the world cup. didn't exactly happen the way they hoped. they lost 2-0 to costa rica, but they kept the game close enough to earn a spot in the world's biggest sporting event. they failed to qualify four years ago, but they're going back for their 11th appearance. such a talented, talented team,
and the world cup as we know kicks off in november. so much ahead here on "gma," including the latest on bruce willis as he steps away from his career after being diagnosed with a condition that affects cognitive abilities. what we know this morning. and the navy s.e.a.l. tragedy. the candidate who died after completing hell week. now his mother is speaking out for the first time on "gma." first, let's go back to ginger in jackson, mississippi. >> george, the winds ahead of the storm not within it were so gusty from here all the way through tampa up into the great lakes. that's going to be the case again today, this is a problem where we have wildfires like this one, zero percent containment, there are evacuations in place. this is knoxville pigeon forge area in tennessee. we'll see more of this action today with those high wind alerts that stretch from daytona beach, jacksonville, all the way up the east coast of florida, charleston, gusts up to 70 miles with power outages possible.

head coach of tampa bay for a front office role with the team, but he will be replaced on the team by offensive coordinator todd bowles who now becomes the sixth minority head coach in the nfl. and we've got a lot more ahead including a big question right now, could masks be the answer for people who suffer from seasonal allergies? that is coming up. but right now, the stunning announcement, bruce willis' family revealing he is stepping away from his acting career after being diagnosed with aphasia. that's a condition that affects cognitive abilities and kaylee hartung is in los angeles with the latest on his condition and how his family is showing their support. good morning, kaylee. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, robin. hollywood has known few onscreen heroes tougher than bruce willis and it's unclear just how long he's been fighting this cndition but now his family is sharing his diagnosis saying they want to bring fans in because they know just how much he means to all of you as you do
to him. >> we'll get together, have a few laughs. >> reporter: this morning, bruce willis, one of hollywood's heaviest hitting action stars, stunning the industry and fans. retiring as he takes on a real-life health battle. willis' five daughters, his wife emma and ex-wife demi moore revealing in a joint post on instagram that he's recently been diagnosed with aphasia which is impacting his cognitive abilities, and with much consideration bruce is stepping away from the career that's meant so much to him. aphasia impacts the ability to communicate, patients can lose some ability to speak or to understand or both. often a symptom of an underlying neurological issue, nearly 180,000 americans are diagnosed every year. >> aphasia is most commonly caused by stroke but can be caused by head trauma, infection, postsurgical complications, tumors and also neurological conditions such as dementia. >> reporter: treatment for aphasia depends on the undeyiaunds wiis has been one of
nearly 40 years with more than 100 credits. his starring role in "moonlighting" willing him an emmy and golden globe. >> do you ever get scared, worried? >> reporter: "die hard" catapulted him to international stardom spinning off four sequels. his bit part in "pulp fiction" helping it reach cult favorite status. he last appeared on "gma" in 2015 discussing his daughter rumer's win on "dancing with the stars." >> rumer and val, the champion. >> you shed a tear or two. >> yes, i did. >> mr. tough guy. >> i'm very proud of her. >> reporter: willis' personal life always in the spotlight. his whirlwind romance with demi moore making them the "it" couple of the late '80s, together building a family with
three daughters and then overcoming a stormy divorce to successfully co-parent. just last week moore posted this photo for his 67th birthday. happy birthday, bruce. thankful for our blended family. that family growing as he remarried in 2009. emma and two more daughters adding to the cast. the joint statement adding, they're moving through this as a strong family unit, and as bruce always says, live it up and together we plan to do just that. that family getting the support of so many, and although bruce willis won't be taking on any new projects he stayed really busy in recent years and has nearly ten films in post production right now. robin. >> we certainly wish him all the best. we'll bring if our chief medical correspondent dr. jennifer ashton with more and so what more do we know about the symptoms? >> usually when we hear the term aphasia, robin, as we heard in the piece it's a symptom that's caused by something else. it's not usually a diagnosis in and of had itself.
it affects all speech and language issues potentially with a spectrum of manifestations, so that could be things like difficulty speaking in complete sentences, not able to understand what other people are saying in day-to-day conversations and then, in terms of the written word, writing sentences that don't make sense so it literally puts up a roadblock in one's ability to communicate. >> and there are different causes of aphasia. how does that affect treatment? >> well, again, you know, the most important thing is to figure out what is causing it and then the treatment is therefore tailored to it. so, when you are talking about just the general condition of aphasia, speech and language therapy can help, can make a difference. if it's a vascular cause such as a stroke, then you want to target that with prevention of another stroke or relieving that obstruction in a blood vessel and then for things like a brain tumor removing that mass lesion with surgery or shrinking it with radiation. >> if you believe that you or someone you know has aphasia, what should you do? >> i think the most important thing, michael, when people hear
this and start to learn about this condition, if someone suddenly is unable to communicate, that is most often the telltale symptom or sign of a stroke. you want to get that person to an emergency room, but if you notice this gradually you want to have them evaluated by a neurologist, by a physician and then find them help with these day-to-day tasks but this is clearly bringing awareness to this condition. >> what kind of impact can that have? >> so important, robin. these people often feel ignored and that they're suffering in silence. so now this is top of mind in a lot of people's news today. >> so kind of him and his family to come forward like this. >> absolutely. >> you can learn more by going to our website. point your phone's camera at th of ny s.e.a.l. candidate who died after hell she's breaking her silence. we're going l you why she's speaking out now. i know there's conflicting information about dupuytren's contracture.

we are back now with the mother of kyle mullen, the navy s.e.a.l. candidate who died in february just hours after completing the grueling hell week training. amy sat down with regina mullen for an exclusive interview. she joins us now. good morning, amy. >> good morning, george. as you might imagine regina mullen is heartbroken and spoke to kyle right after he finished that infamous hell week training, and said he just didn't sound right, but nearly two months later she is searching for answers and she's demanding change. >> i wake up every night thinking of him, thinking of how he died probably not breathing. >> reporter: nearly two months after the unexplained death of navy s.e.a.l. candidate kyle mullen, his mother is breaking her silence saying she wants to prevent another family from experiencing the same tragedy.
>> what made kyle want to be a navy s.e.a.l.? >> he wanted to be the best of the best and he really wanted to do it to help save people. >> reporter: the 24-year-old former football player from new jersey had just completed hell week. a grueling 5 1/2 sleepless days of underwater and tactical training designed to push them to their physical and mental limits. those who drop out during hell week or ring the bell have to wait two years to try again. kyle made it through. >> he sent me a text, hell week secured! i saw it and i called him and he says, i did it, mom. and he was so happy and i heard him out of breath and i said, kyle, are you okay? are you hurt? are you in a hospital? and he just responded, don't worry, mom. i'm good. i love you and he hung up and then i texted him immediately, you don't sound good. and i never heard from him again. >> the last words he said were i
love you, mom. >> i love you, mom. >> but you knew as a mom and as a nurse that he didn't sound good? >> it was just his breathing. he couldn't -- it was difficult for him to form the words with the airflow. it sounded labored. he couldn't breathe properly. >> so how did you find out that he had died? >> saturday morning around 8-something there was a knock on my door and i saw people in white suits at my door and i opened the window, i said is he in the hospital? they said, no, ma'am, they said can we come in and i let them in and i said he's not coming home, is he, and they said, no, ma'am, he's not coming home. >> reporter: at the time the navy released a statement saying mullen and another sailor had reported symptoms and were taken to the hospital. the other sailor recovered. mullen's death is now under investigation and no official cause of death has been released. regina believes her son was abandoned right when he was most in need. >> i'm told that the medical team was let go at 12:00 noon, and someone was on call and they didn't answer. >> have you gotten any real
explanation from any official about what happened to kyle? >> no. i don't have any autopsy results. they're investigating it and they say that's all they say. >> you've got to be frustrated. >> uh-huh. >> but as a nurse, what do you believe happened to your son? >> i believe he -- they laid him flat and he most likely couldn't breathe and he probably suffocated from his own bodily fluids. >> reporter: sipe stands for swimming-induced pulmonary edema. it is fluid buildup in the lungs without choking on water. the majority of cases clear up within 48 hours, but in rare cases can be deadly. regina said that kyle had been treated for sipe during training in january. during hell week, ncis investigators told her kyle was treated with oxygen twice including on the day he died. >> and even during the process my son was telling me it's discouraged to say i need to go to the medical -- he said they wouldn't let him go to medical unless you quit and ring the bell.
>> kyle didn't want to ring the bell? >> no, no, he would rather die trying but this case, he didn't die trying. he got through it and he completed it, and there was no medical. there was no medical support there for him or he'd be alive today, i do believe that. >> we've heard it many times no one left behind and i think unfortunately kyle was left behind in this situation. >> reporter: regina says when she flew out to california after her son's death a commander told her kyle had twice been offered medical treatment but he refused. >> at that point i said he doesn't know what day of the week it is. he hasn't slept in five days. how can he make that determination? and i said to him, where was your medical team? where were they? >> what did he say? >> i don't really get an answer. >> reporter: the naval special warfare command told abc news in a statement that all candidates receive head-to-toe medical evaluations, including a full set of core vitals, a minimum of
once a day and as require the throughout the week, as well as upon conclusion of the assessment event. what does the navy need to do to prevent this from happening again? >> have someone standing with just a stethoscope, that's it. he just needed someone to care about his condition when he came off before he went to go lay down and go to sleep. a medical professional with a stethoscope could have prevented this. >> what would you say to any navy officials watching this right now? >> they need better training, better monitoring and it can never happen again. no mother should ever have to feel my pain that i have. >> regina said her son had a journal where he wrote complete the mission, take care of your men, and she feels like her son was not taken care of. now in a statement the navy says multiple independent investigations are ongoing into the circumstances surrounding kyle's death and until those investigations are complete, they say it is inappropriate to speculate on the cause of death or contributing factors but this is so, so beyond heartbreaking. >> it really is. >> devastating. thank you, amy. we'll be right back.

pictures in. the surveys will be done on all the tornadoes here, but there are watches and warnings ongoing in north florida, it just rolled through panama city, mexico beach, and today, robin, and tonight, it comes for the i-95 corridor with damaging winds. >> we're thinking of everybody impacted by the storms. ginger, thank you. george? now to the war in ukraine as russian forces struggle to take control of the country, u.s. and uk officials claim vladimir putin has been misinformed by his advisers about how badly things are going for russia. we go back to james longman in kyiv. good morning, james. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, george. any sthaens russia is moving away from the capital really in doubt this morning. missile strike very close to center of kyiv. this morning, u.s. officials misinformed about russia's poor military performance in ukraine by advisers too afraid to tell him the truth.

to the dreaded masks that most people are quite sick of by now. >> they sure are. we do have viewer questions. one asks how can i tell if i have allergies, covid or a cold? >> this is a really common question and my first answer is don't try to be your own doctor. if you suffer from common allergies, you know what those typically present like and what the symptoms are, but there are some generalizations that people can keep in mind. first of all, when you are talking about a cold, we're typically talking about nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, maybe a little cough. you don't typically see a fever with the common cold. then, when you go down to allergies, yes, you can get irritation, itchiness, eyes, nose, sore throat can be affected. you can get a little bit of cough. you do not see a fever with seasonal allergies. that is key and then covid. this is the great masquerader. vague symptoms, a lot of people have no symptoms. you can lose your sense of smell or taste. you can have a fever, you can not have a fever, when in doubt get tested. >> another twitter question,
what kind of treatment options are available? are there any natural options that work? >> a lot of different options. depends on severity. suffering a lot, keep those air purifiers running. if you have them in your home or office, keep the windows up, bathe your pets, shower at the end of the day, so you don't put the pollen on your pillow. and medication-wise, there are allergy shots, nasal sprays, oral decongestants. find what works for you and get ahead of it. >> jen ashton, thanks very much. >> you bet. >> michael. we turn now to turning your clothes into cash. reselling old clothes is helping savvy shoppers make money and it is a story we first saw in "the wall street journal" and becky worley joins us with what items can earn you big money. good morning, becky. >> michael, good morning. everything old is new again and the opportunity to make some cash off your old clothes and shoes, that's just money in the bank now. paige fisher is a fashionista that's a fan of consignment
