7:02 am
good morning, america. that is a live look in miami where they couldn't be more excited to be hosting the city's inaugural grand prix. we will have more on that coming up. the weather looks nice there, though. >> a lot of excite for that. we begin with severe weather sweeping across the country. take a look at this, flash flooding in west virginia. a man nearby was swept away to his death on his tractor when he was overcome by high waters. >> lots of large hail in north carolina. and here's the moment a tree came crashing down in greenville in tennessee due to the high winds and rain. for the latest let's go to meteorologist cheryl scott from wls. she is in for rob this morning. cheryl, good morning. what's going on? >> good morning. a lot to talk about. a lot of severe weather reports. we start you with this video. you can see the golf ball size hail falling in augusta, georgia. more of the same today but i can tell you the severe weather threat is going down in the south and here in the mid-atlantic but you can see all
7:03 am
of the storm reports just draped across the south, parts of the carolinas, over 100 wind damage reports there. it's going to be a soggy day but, again, that severe threat going down. the rain showers continuing here across virginia as well as pennsylvania into the city with over 2 to 4 inches of rain by tomorrow. eva? >> cheryl, thank you. now to the pandemic and the biden administration's dire new prediction as covid cases and hospitalizations surge in the northeast. abc's karen travers joins us this morning with more. good morning, karen. >> reporter: good morning, eva. this is a very alarming prediction from the biden administration. a senior official estimates that without new funding from congress for treatments and vaccines, as many as 100 million americans could be infected with covid-19 during a fall and winter surge. that is nearly 30% of the u.s. population, and that does not take into account the possibility of a new major variant. but already we're seeing cases surge in the northeast. in new england and the new york and new jersey area, infection rates are nearing their highest
7:04 am
levels in three months. hospitalizations are also increasing. daily admission levels have more than doubled in the last month. so what's driving this surge in cases? well, health experts say it's a combination of things, mask mandates and covid-19 restrictions have been easing. plus, there are highly contagious omicron subvariants. president biden is pressuring congress to approve $22.5 billion in new covid funding and officials at the white house are ringing the alarm saying, if congress fails to act, the consequences could be catastrophic. the white house says without funding, they will not be able to purchase new vaccines in the fall that could target some of those new variants. they won't be able to have as much testing capacity and will run out of treatment options. a senior official tells abc news that funding could be the difference between a surge that has many cases and a surge that has many cases and deaths. janai? >> we will be taking note of that. karen travers, thank you so much.
7:05 am
turning now to the growing concerns about a mysterious illness affecting children around the world, abc's andrew dymburt joins us as the cdc now saying five kids in the u.s. have died from the severe form of hepatitis. andrew, good morning to you. >> good morning, janai. doctors and health experts around the world are truly baffled and don't know why these children are getting hepatitis, but health investigators are casting a wide net to get to the bottom of these rare outbreaks. this morning, more reports of a mysterious global hepatitis outbreak claiming more lives. in the u.s. at least 109 children have gotten sick including five who have died. cases now have been reported in 25 states in recent months with the world health organization now investigating 228 similar cases around the world. >> we have yet to establish a causal link with this increase in severe hepatitis, whether it's a combination of pathogens and/or environmental exposure. >> reporter: while the centers for disease control doesn't know the cause, the cdc is now working with clinics to see if
7:06 am
more hepatitis cases in children are out there. more than 90% of kids diagnosed have had to be hospitalized with 14% needing transplants and more than half testing positive for adenovirus infections according to health experts. >> whether it's adenovirus alone or potentially alongside covid or maybe some other cause, this still yet has to be fully investigated. >> reporter: hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver and sometimes the disease is mild requiring no specific treatment, but severe cases can lead to hospitalization and even liver failure. >> i initially thought she just had a stomach bug. >> reporter: it was a frightening situation for jillian when her 9-year-old daughter riley's symptoms progressed rapidly over the course of a week. >> she had had shooting pains in her upper abdomen area to the point where she was in tears and after lots of tests and an ultrasound and all that, that's when we found out that she had hepatitis. >> reporter: it took two weeks
7:07 am
for riley to get better. >> i suppose my frustration is the fear of the unknown as far as other families are concerned and hoping no one else gets it and has to go through a worse time. >> reporter: now, officials say that the increase in cases may be alarming but stress overall the rate of severe pediatric hepatitis cases is still quite rare. whit? >> rare but something they're watching closely, thank you, andrew. we move overseas now and the war in ukraine and intense fighting in the eastern part of the country as president biden is said to attend the virtual g7 summit this weekend along with ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy. abc's marcus moore is on the ground there in irpin with the latest developments. marcus, good morning. >> reporter: well, whit, good morning. we are what is left or what used to be the main bridge into irpin, the suburb of kyiv. the ukrainians destroyed this bridge in an effort to slow russia's advance on the capital. and today the ruins are kind of a memorial to the lives lost and those changed forever by russia's assault. this morning, the desperate escape from mariupol, russian and ukrainian officials claiming
7:08 am
dozens of civilians were rescued on friday including 11 children from the tunnels under the nder azovstal steel plant in that battered port city. more than 150 civilians still believed to be inside along with the last of the ukrainian fighters defending the city against russian forces and all odds. we spoke with one resident whose brother is still trapped in the steel plant. "we're very worried about him, she says,". "we're waiting for him to come home." especially the parents, for us, he's a very necessary person and we can't imagine our lives without him. the situation growing more dire amid fears vladimir putin wants to declare he's captured the city by monday, victory day, the biggest patriotic holiday on the russian calendar. overnight ukrainian president zelenskyy warning citizens to brace for the possibility of more russian attacks. curfews and air raid sirens amid the holiday. in response to russia's aggression, the italian government seizing a $700 million luxury yacht linked to the russian president, and
7:09 am
president biden announcing yet another aid package heading to ukraine, this time for $150 million. the u.s. has now provided nearly $3.8 billion in arms and equipment to ukrainians since the russian invasion. this as details emerge about the intelligence shared by the united states after the ukrainian strike in the black sea that took out russia's flagship carrier, the "moskva." a u.s. official telling abc news, quote, we do provide a range of intelligence to help the ukrainians understand the threat posed by russian ships in the black sea, but the pentagon making it clear the u.s. had no prior knowledge of the attack and did not provide, quote, specific targeting information. >> we provide them what we believe to be relevant and timely information about russian units that could allow them to adjust and execute their self-defense to the best of their ability. >> reporter: but amid the chaos, signs of healing. mexican born dallas painter roberto marquez came to ukraine and today he paints on canvases
7:10 am
underneath this destroyed irpin bridge, tributes to those lost. >> so maybe i can do something with my paintbrush. >> reporter: and you may be able to see him in the distance behind me continuing to work. he says that his weapon here in ukraine is the paintbrush he's using. in the meantime, there are so many residents who are yearning to return to their homes here, eva, despite the real threat of war. >> you can understand how you would want to go home. marcus, thank you. well, now to the urgent manhunt for a capital murder suspect and a corrections officer who went missing more than a week ago. authorities now releasing new details and a reward. abc's elwyn lopez joins us this morning from florence, alabama, with more. good morning, elwyn. >> reporter: hey, eva, good morning. the two have managed to evade capture for more than a week and now officials say they've tracked down their getaway car about two hours away from this detention center. this morning officials say they are back to square one in their search for accused murderer casey white and corrections
7:11 am
officer vicky white after finding the pair's getaway car. >> it's a botched up job but they did attempt to try to paint it a little bit. >> reporter: authorities say they had been searching for this suv for days when they were alerted tennessee police had actually found it just hours after the escape last friday. but it took a week for them to realize it was tied to this case. the car found abandoned in the woods off a tennessee country road seemingly spray painted and was towed to a local impound lot. >> did they steal another car? did they hitch a ride with somebody or something? you know, we don't know. >> reporter: officials believe the two whites, who are not related, are on the run, quote, flush with cash after vicky took out about $90,000 from her bank accounts. bulletins now out with pictures of the 6'9" inmate showing distinctive tattoos including what looks like a confederate flag. the u.s. marshal service also releasing these
7:12 am
altered photos with what vicky white might look like if she dyed her hair. as to why she did it -- >> it's obviously a jailhouse romance. or something. >> reporter: and the sheriff now sharing this message to the former corrections officer. >> and you know we're going to find you. hopefully we find you safe. if you're safe right now, still safe, get out while you can and turn yourself in to local authorities wherever you're at. >> reporter: the sheriff here tells us that he believes the two ditched the car due to mechanical issues and now authorities say they have no clue as to where the pair might be. authorities are offering up to $25,000 for any information leading to their arrest. janai? >> all right, elwyn, thank you for the latest on that. turning now to the fallout from that leaked supreme court draft decision that could overturn roe v. wade. abc's zohreen shah is in los angeles with a look at what states are trying to do now to protect abortion rights. zohreen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, janai. the white house is launching a mental health hotline for new
7:13 am
moms and pregnant women who might need it. there are also efforts to protect abortion access, but those are all likely to fail. so now many states are trying to urgently take action. this morning, many states bracing for a potential roe v. wade reversal. [ crowd chanting ] leaving abortion up to individual states. nearly half likely are certain to ban abortion in most cases. the gutmacher institute, a reproductive rights research organization, estimating there could be a nearly 3,000% increase of out-of-state women whose closest abortion clinic will be in california. ever since september when the texas restrictive ban took effect, providers in california have been seeing surges. >> we've seen a doubling of the number of patients coming from outside of california, and we expect that to only increase. >> reporter: dr. laura dalton has been anticipating more out of state women at the country's largest planned parenthood affiliate. >> we're able to increase
7:14 am
capacity by 250 to 500 patients a week. >> reporter: 13 state bills were proposed soon after texas' ban, everything ranging from paying for travel to preventing criminalization. >> we won't enforce civil judgments that other states impose because of their laws. we're protecting patients and providers should they seek care here in our state. >> reporter: but already some californians voicing opposition. >> part of our huge concern with so-called abortion tourism is that the state of california would be using taxpayer dollars that in our opinion should be going to mothers and families here in the golden state and would instead be incentivizing people to fly from across the country here to california to receive free abortions. >> reporter: lila rose is the founder of live action, an organization that advocates against abortion. she thinks the expected supreme court decision about abortion does not go far enough. >> it's not full justice, though, because whether you're conceived in california or texas, you as a human being deserve the right to live.
7:15 am
>> reporter: but some like cdc director dr. rochelle walensky saying her fear is that women won't have the means to travel. >> those who don't may take matters into their own hands. i do think that lives could be at stake in that situation. >> reporter: and even some california residents say they struggled getting care. abby was six weeks in when she discovered she was pregnant. it took another month to get an abortion. >> why have you decided to speak out so strongly for women who do have to travel? >> i think that if we want california to be a state where people really have the right to choose, we need to make sure that people can actually access abortions, and i was just surprised by how hard it was for me to get one in a timely manner and without a lot of stress. >> reporter: we're now also learning that technology might be used against women who are looking to get an abortion in states where it may not be legal. there are a lot of apps that keep track of data that may reveal if a woman has gotten an
7:16 am
abortion, and that data could be used as evidence. whit? >> all right, zohreen, thank you. now to the economy and the latest jobs numbers amid wild fluctuations in the markets and growing fears over inflation. abc's alexis christoforous joins us now to break iall t down. alexis, good morning. >> good morning to you, whit. president biden touted another month of strong job gains during his sixth visit yesterday to the key swing state of ohio. despite rising inflation and higher interest rates, employers added more than 400,000 jobs in april for the 12th straight month. still, employers are having a tough time finding workers. in march there were a record 11.5 million job openings meaning there were two jobs for every unemployed person. to attract workers, businesses are raising wages. trouble is they're not keeping up with surging prices for everything from food and gas to furniture and airfares. the federal reserve this week made its most aggressive push yet in its fight against inflation raising interest rates
7:17 am
by half a percent for the first time in over two decades and promised more large rate hikes to come. the fed's trying to slow demand and reduce inflation by making borrowing more expensive, so rates on auto loans, credit cards, home equity lines of credit are all going up as are mortgage rates, which touched a 13-year high this week of 5.45%. this time last year, that rate was less than 3%. rapidly rising interest rates now have wall street bracing for a possible recession, which triggered the biggest stock sell-off we saw in two years this week. whit? >> and, alexis, i think something that a lot of people are struggling to understand, if the job market is so strong, why all this talk about a possible recession? >> yeah, it's weird, right. it doesn't seem to connect. well, it's a delicate balancing act for sure for the fed right now. it wants to slow consumer and business spending enough to bring down inflation but not so much that it tips the economy into a recession. and this week at least two major wall street banks raised their forecasts for a mild recession
7:18 am
at some point next year. >> all right. alexis, thanks so much. and before we go, we do want to note your first report here on weekend "gma." just wanted to welcome you to the abc team and we go way back. worked together about a decade ago, one of those other three-letter networks. >> we won't talk about that. it's great to be here with you all. i wish i could have brought better news and not talk of recession but look forward to being with you. >> we appreciate your information and your report. we'll talk to you soon. thank you. well, now a small plane made an emergency landing in someone's backyard in houston and thankfully everyone is okay. the pilot reportedly calling the control tower minutes after taking off to say there were engine problems. the tower trying to direct him back to the airport, but there was just no time. the pilot mowing down a fence in someone's backyard and bringing the plane to a stop. all four people on the plane and everyone on the ground made it out safely. >> good news there. but at least 22 people are dead and dozens more injured in cuba after an explosion at a five-star hotel in downtown havana. authorities believe a natural
7:19 am
gas leak caused the deadly explosion that you can see the aftermath there of the hotel saratoga. the hotel was undergoing renovations and was set to re-open next week. we do want to switch gears and get another check of the weather. in for rob this morning, meteorologist cheryl scott from our abc station in chicago, wls over there in the metaverse. a lot going on in the weather department. >> really truly and a soggy start to here in new york city. it's going to be a little bit messy along the east coast but also have big stories to mention. here's a video. the largest wildfire in the country right now out in new mexico. here you can see that ablaze, hermit's peak fire. this is going to remain an issue throughout the entire weekend. you can see the critical fire danger, the red flag warnings in effect here. low humidity, strong gusty winds and winds gusting up to about 55 miles per hour will continue to fuel the fire warnings in these areas, but also with the fires comes the building heat. we are talking about near record heat as we look at the deep south.
7:20 am
and this heat will continue to build across the middle of the country as well. but record heat near triple digit heat in parts of texas here and, again, this heat will be moving all the way up into parts of the upper midwest as we go into next week. that's a look across the country. here's a look at our exploratorium camera a little sun will make for more sun today as the clouds continue to open up, but it's going to be cool. the winds are going to kick up and looking at the gusty winds continuing with a chance of showers for mother's day highs today only in the low 60s downtown windy upper 50s at the coast mid 60s in oakland 69 today in livermore and that level one system arriving tomorrow. yeah. >> we blame you. we usually blame rob, so we'll give you a break just this one time.
7:21 am
>> guilty. >> all right, cheryl, thank you. now to a shocking ending to a 23-game winning streak on "jeopardy!" toronto tutor mattea roach entering friday's final jeopardy in first place but then an incorrect answer and an extra dollar cost her the win. take a look. >> $3,601. >> so the challenger there ending mattea roach's "jeopardy!" winning streak. roach walks away with 23 wins and nearly $561,000 taking fifth place for consecutive wins and winning, still pretty good. the canada native stumped by the category, usa, and the clue, these two mayors gave their names to a facility built on the side of an old racetrack owned by a coca-cola magnate and the correct response was apparently who are william hartsfield and maynard jackson. >> the girl who beat her was from atlanta, from georgia. so it was like, you know, they pick those clues months and months in advance. >> it wasn't fair, was it?

hashish oil into the country. >> lots of people still watching that case hoping she comes home. well, we do start this half hour with a closer look at the mystery that's the talk of the nation's capital and the nation itself. who could have leaked that supreme court draft that would overturn roe v. wade? chief justice john roberts ordering an investigation. abc's devin dwyer joins us now breaking down how that probe will proceed. >> reporter: it's the question at the center of a supreme court shrouded with secrecy. who leaked that draft opinion that would overturn roe versus wade? >> i think the most likely explanation is that it's an insider and the only question is what is the motive? >> reporter: marshal of the court gail curley is now leading an investigation. thiru vignarajah, the former clerk to retiring justice stephen breyer, told us court decisions are handled with the utmost confidentiality. >> the justices trusted us implicitly. there were two different servers, one for draft opinions
7:33 am
and another for you to do your research to make sure an external hack didn't happen. >> reporter: a key focus of the probe will be the paper trail. after an initial private vote in each case the justices begin drafting opinions, circulating confidential copies for feedback, often in multiple rounds. >> it's only when everyone agrees an opinion is ready to go out that all the opinions go public. >> reporter: those with access to the documents include the nine justices, roughly 30 administrative staff and 37 clerks, young lawyers who do research and writing of the draft opinions. sharif gurges, a former clerk to justice samuel alito says the consequences for leaking are stark. >> the clerks have extremely high personal incentives are high not to do this because of what could happen to their legal career. >> reporter: it's not just who leaked the draft but why investigators hope to learn. was there a political motive or could it have been an outsider? politico which first obtained the draft opinion identified its
7:34 am
source as a person familiar with the court's deliberations. if an insider is outed, experts say he or she could be fired, sanctioned or disbarred as a lawyer. >> if it's one of the justices short of impeachment it is hard to see what sanction, if any, they could be facing. >> reporter: the leak is a blow to the court's credibility at a critical moment. >> this doesn't look like something other than politics. >> reporter: with final decisions on abortion and other high stakes cases due by the end of june. >> i find it very hard to imagine a healthy, functioning court next year if the person who made the leak isn't identified, publicly identified and sanctioned for it. >> reporter: for "good morning america," devin dwyer, abc news, weather and cheryl scott from our abc station wls in chicago. so good to have you here. >> so happy to be here. unfortunately, the weather not cooperating. it's going to be a wet go here, a soggy saturday in the city and really the persistent heavy rain has been a story over the past

7:41 am
to the uk to join in the festivities of the queen's platinum jubilee. a spokesperson confirming to abc news the couple are excited and honored to attend. this will be the first trip they will make as a family and lilibet's introduction to her royal relatives. so, as her majesty marks 70 years on the throne, she will be surrounded by children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. >> this will mean that the queen and other family members will meet lilibet for the first time ever. clearly relations are good enough for them to want to be surrounded by their family and appear publicly with the royals, however, i think it would be naive to think their appearance at these events means that every dispute, every feud is now resolved. >> reporter: and the palace is gearing up for the party, the bbc releasing this new video of the stage. ♪ but the palace announcing the balcony of buckingham palace is reserved for a select royal few. a spokesperson telling abc news that, quote, after careful
7:42 am
consideration, the queen has decided this year's traditional trooping the colour balcony appearance on thursday, 2nd of june will be limited to her majesty and those members of the royal family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the queen. that means no harry and no meghan or prince andrew on the balcony for that iconic moment as the royals watch a fly past. so harry and meghan may not be making an appearance on that balcony behind me for that iconic moment waving to us subjects below, but there are other glorious events that are planned, so they may well appear at those. now, don't forget that the platinum jubilee celebrations kick off on june 2nd until june 5th, so mark your calendars, eva. >> and we're hoping for nice weather for that, lama. thank you for being with us. and joining us now is abc news royal contributor omid scobie. thanks for being with us. the big question, how do you
7:43 am
think harry and meghan will be received when they come for this? >> reporter: well, of course, we remember the couple leaving in march 2020. i was actually with them at buckingham palace for their last day together as working royals. and, of course, that ended on a very bittersweet note. we saw those awkward moments at westminster abbey between them and other family members, and that's the image in the minds of people today. a lot of people still feeling frustrated for the couple to speaking to oprah for sharing their story, their version of events. so it will be an interesting arrival for them. i think we'll definitely see a mix of reactions from the public, but i think everyone is really focused on the queen. this is about celebrating her 70 years on the throne. that's why harry and meghan are coming over, and given all the drama that's led up to this point, i think everyone just wants to put it to one side and focus on something really positive. >> well, and the queen has decided they are not going to be on that balcony at buckingham palace. what do you think the message is behind that? >> yeah, eva, i think the decision behind making the
7:44 am
balcony working royals only is more about andrew than anyone else. he was the problem that everyone within the palace, including the aides around the queen, were desperately trying to figure out a solution on how to allow him to be involved as a family member but not for him to have that moment to appear front and center and essentially have a comeback moment. so to limit it to working royals only i think avoids that very tricky situation but it also allows the royal family to show who the future of the firm is. this is the working group of individuals that will continue the queen's legacy far beyond her, and i think that's really going to be the message on the day. >> all right, omid scobie, also will be a chance for the queen to meet her granddaughter who she hasn't met yet. i know all eyes will be watching for that as well. omid, thanks so much. coming up on "good morning america" putting the pedal to the metal in miami as the city gears up for their first grand prix. e metal in miami as the ci gears up for their first grand prix.
