looking for formula, and now, washington is demanding answers and the white house stepping in to try and rush formula back to stores. this morning, with pressure mounting, the white house is taking action to try and address the baby formula crisis. urging states to allow families to use federal aid to buy more brands, taking steps to import more formula, and cracking down on price gouging, but the white house unable to say when the shortages will end. >> if you are a parent who's looking for formula right now struggling to find what you need, do you have even a rough guess of how long these shortages are going to last? what should parents be bracing for? >> we've already seen an increase in supply over the past couple of weeks. we're taking every step to increase that so our message is we hear you. we want to do everything we can. >> reporter: congress is demanding answers. abc news learning exclusively that the house oversight committee is launching an investigation. >> it's a crisis. we are taking steps to correct it and we will make sure that it does not happen again. >> reporter: across the country,
parents worried, frustrated, scrambling to find formula. >> what happens when we can't find it? does your baby just starve? >> reporter: in stores, the shelves empty. an estimated 40% of brands out of stock. >> not only can we not find it, but when we do find it there's always a 20% markup on it. >> reporter: on ebay one formula for infants with a milk allergy now selling more than double its normal price. hoarding is also a big concern. companies like cvs and walgreens now limiting purchases to three per customer. now, critics say the white house dropped the ball or that they should have acted sooner and some are calling for the president to invoke the defense production act to try to boost manufacturing. the white house isn't ruling it out, but they aren't taking that step just yet but bottom line, this is a very real problem. i can attest to this. i myself went to seven stores yesterday before i was able to find formula for my own daughter, and washington just can't say right now with any certainty when this crisis is going to end. michael? >> it is a crisis, mary. thank you so much. coming up in our next hour, we're going to find out how
parents are banding together to deal with the formula shortage. george? we're going to get the latest now on the war in ukraine. russia threatening to retaliate as finland vows to join nato after years o neutrality. ian pannell is on the scene in ukraine. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, george. from kharkiv, it's ukraine's second largest city, but now appears to be the second major location where russian forces are withdrawing from. we've been hearing the sound of artillery and missile strikes overnight but in terms of that land invasion it hasn't just stalled, it's definitely going in reverse as we get this major news as you say that nato could be set to expand for the first time in years. overnight, russia threatening that it may retaliate if sweden and finland join nato telling a british news podcast it would be the worst solution for them. >> it means that finland and sweden all of a sudden instead of neutral countries become part of the enemy and, well, they bear all the risks.
>> reporter: and the deputy ambassador also appearing to threaten nato. >> if there are nato detachments in these territories so this territory would become a target -- a possible target for a strike. >> reporter: finland's border with russia is more than 800 miles long and as russia ramps up its rhetoric against countries seeking to join nato -- >> most persons will be coming inside the shelter in this way. >> reporter: -- finland and its citizens are now preparing bunkers across the country. the u.s. and other nato members support the two scandinavian countries joining the military alliance. >> it's good for our security around the world and certainly having a strong partnership with a range of countries including sweden and finland. >> reporter: but russia says nato expansion is a threat, using it as a pretext to invade ukraine. this is what putin's war is doing to the people of this land. in zaporizhzhia in the east, lyudmila picks through what remains of her home. "all that's left is ruins," she says.
"i don't even know where to start." and in the northern region images emerging of the destruction there. more school buildings coated in dust. what can be achieved by destroying ukrainian schools, says president zelenskyy. al russian commanders who give such orders are simply sick and incurable. in nary pole, as another strike rocks the azovstal steel plant, the armed forces releasing video from the area overnight. an upclose view of war from the soldiers on the ground. their families now demanding action. [ crowd chanting ] as ukraine's deputy prime minister saying her country is conducting very difficult negotiations to evacuate 38 heavily wounded fighters from the steel plant. well, the defenders in mariupol are releasing a statement this morning saying that they are under attack again, that russian armored vehicles are storming the plant. meanwhile, the first court case
against a russian charged with murdering a civilian has begun in kyiv. prosecutors here telling us exact many more to come. george? >> ian pannell, thanks. let's bring in steve ganyard. steve, let's start with this finland announcement. to anyone who lived through the cold war stunning they would join nato. >> remember, putin invaded ukraine with the idea of creating this strategic buffer between nato and russia. he has now lost the nato or the northern part of that strategic buffer. just alone the finnish border with russia will double the amount of nato border with russia. on one hand you would have thought putin understood as soon as he crossed into ukraine, that finland and sweden would move toward joining nato, or on the other hand, perhaps this is just another of the strategic miscalculations mr. putin has made. >> what do you make of the retreat from kharkiv? >> an interesting turn of events. they pushed all the way back -- they pushed the russians all the way back out of kharkiv. and the russians are on the back heels.
the rest of the battlefield in the donbas is stagnated, so they'll have to bring troops up to defend the border around kharkiv and further stagnate their efforts in the donbas, so the war on the ground stagnant and the economy in russia continues to take a beating and is well into recession. very few options. >> how does russia respond to both the military and the diplomatic setbacks? >> yeah, i think, george, people would have been much more concerned about two months ago if the russians had said we're going to do something militarily, but now the russian military has proven so incompetent and so corrupt that people aren't that worried. but go back to what the intelligence community has always been worried about with this stagnation on the battlefield, and that is, is there a move by mr. putin to escalate, to de-escalate that would increase the crisis to give putin negotiating leverage. >> that is the fear, thanks very much, steve ganyard. cecilia? we turn to those soaring gas prices shattering new records. this morning, the cost driven up by russian sanctions and hitting just as that summer driving season is about to kick off. elwyn lopez is live there in
atlanta with more on this. good morning, elwyn. >> reporter: hey, cecilia, good morning. the national average, once again hitting a new all-time high, climbing to $4.43 a allon. and while here in georgia we are not yet topping the $4 mark, the soaring cost of gas is slamming other parts of the country. take a look at this. the worst states, california at a whopping $5.87, hawaii $5.31, and nevada at $5.13, and this all comes as the nation continues to grapple with high inflation rates and many are gearing up to hit the roads. the upcoming peak driving season just around the corner with memorial day weekend historically a time when gas prices go up even higher. >> thank you so much. michael. now to the deadly storms in the heartland. winds topping 100 miles per hour creating a massive wall of dust. ginger is tracking it all for us. hey, ginger. >> michael, the scene behind me is something i usually show you
from texas or arizona but, nope, that's sioux falls, south dakota. that huge wall of dust, it's called a haboob. that is another word for it. this thing had 107-mile-per-hour winds within it. it took down visibility. that's daytime that you're looking at right there from people driving. it flips cars and took over so many landscapes there and really they become quite wide. and in other parts of south dakota they had severe weather including tornadoes. you can see the damage here from over this neighborhood. now, today that same storm system has the potential to do more damaging winds and you're going anywhere from iron river, michigan to ada, oklahoma. we'll be watching it. cecilia? >> all right, ginger, thanks. we're going to turn to queen elizabeth seen in public for the first time since march. the 96-year-old monarch had canceled several appearances recently. maggie rulli joins us with more from kensington palace. good morning, maggie. >> reporter: hey, cecilia, good morning. we've seen queen elizabeth out and about this morning. it's her first public appearance in weeks. now she was spotted being driven through the royal windsor horse show and she appeared to be
enjoying herself. seeing her on this outing is a relief for so many, remember just three days ago she was forced to pull out of the state opening of parliament due to her mobility issues. at the event her majesty did not get out of the car as she watched her horses compete in the show, but this is the first time we've seen the queen in public since her husband prince philp's memorial service back in march. now, since then she's had to cancel other appearances, but, guys, we know how much the queen loves horses. so clearly this was an event she just would have hated to miss. cecilia. >> it was good to see her back out and smiling. thank you. cecilia, now to a possible hitch in the twitter sale. elon musk putting it on hold due to news about spam accounts. deirdre bolton has the story. good morning, deirdre. >> reporter: good morning, michael. surprising announcement from elon musk, the world's richest man tweeting, twitter deal temporarily on hold. pending details supporting calculation that spam, fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users. that's what he tweeted out so
this announcement causing twitter's stock to fall by 19% in these premarket hours. musk was in the process of buying twitter for $44 billion. tweeted just days ago that one of his top priorities would be to remove spam bots from the platform. twitter claiming in a filing earlier this week that several risks remain before the deal with musk can be finalized. issues outstanding, whether or not advertisers could continue to spend on twitter, and then potential uncertainty regarding future plans and strategy, michael. >> seems like a lot of issues right there. thank you so much, deidre. george. michael, we're going to turn now to a dramatic escalation in the capitol riot investigation. the house select committee issued subpoenas for house republican leader kevin mccarthy, four other gop members of congress who rejected requests to testify voluntarily. chief washington correspondent jon karl has the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. the committee believes that these republicans are fact witnesses to what donald trump was doing around january 6th and, therefore, need to testify.
but, george, this is a highly confrontational and virtually unprecedented move issuing subpoenas for fellow members of congress including the man believed by many to be the likely next speaker of the house. house republican leader kevin mccarthy has refused to cooperate with the january 6th committee for months. now, the committee is turning up the pressure issuing subpoenas for mccarthy and four other house republicans. mccarthy spoke to trump on january 6th while the former president's suppoters were rampaging through the capitol. shortly after that phone call mccarthy told abc news that he had pleaded with trump to give a national address calling on his supporters to stand down. >> i begged him to go talk to the nation. >> reporter: four days later mccarthy was caught on tape telling fellow republican leaders that trump bears responsibility for the attack. >> i've had it with this guy. what he did is unacceptable. nobody can defend that, and nobody should defend it. >> reporter: it's been clear
from the start of the investigation that mccarthy would be a key witness. this is what liz cheney now the top republican on the committee said nearly one year ago. should kevin mccarthy be willing to speak, testify before that commission? after all he is one of the few people that we know of that was actually talking to donald trump while the attack was taking place. >> he absolutely should and i wouldn't be surprised if he were subpoenaed. i think that he very clearly and said publicly that he's got information about the president's state of mind that day. >> reporter: none of these five republicans have indicated they will comply with the subpoena. when asked about it yesterday, mccarthy didn't directly answer, but he criticized the committee for conducting what he called an illegitimate investigation and using it to go after the committee's political opponents. george. >> meantime, jon, former president trump also facing a new investigation. >> reporter: yes, this is about the classified information that he brought with him to
mar-a-lago. as you remember, the president brought several boxes of white house records with him when he left the white house last year and it turned out that some of the information in those boxes is classified. there is an investigation into this, a subpoena has been issued to the national archives. they've asked -- the investigators have asked to talk to some of the white house staffers involved in packing up those boxes, but, george, it's very unlikely that the former president would face criminal charges over this. as you know, presidents have wide latitude to declassify. >> he can declassify all of it if he wanted to. jon karl, thanks very much. michael. >> thank you, george. we know cecilia handles sports and i handle space so now to this out of this world breakthrough from deep space. the first image of the black hole at the center of our galaxy. will reeve is here now with what all of it means. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning, michael. what this image right here means is einstein's theory of relativity has another data point. it means this international
network of telescopes is working. it means the world, the universe to the scientific community. it's a picture of a black hole relatively in our backyard. it's huge. black holes have long been a staple for hollywood movies set in space. fascinating science fiction fans and scientists. but until now, we'd never actually seen one in earth's galaxy and this morning, for the first time, a picture of a black hole named sagittarius a-star can be seen at the center of the milky way, roughly 27,000 light-years from earth. it may be fuzzy and blurry, but it's one of the most significant moments in scientific history. >> it's the first time we've imaged the black hole in our galaxy. it's also the second image we have of a black hole at all so going from one to two is a game changer. >> reporter: the image comes from the event horizon telescopes named for the boundary of no escape in a black
hole where gravity is so strong that nothing, not even light can escape from it. but even as scientists make one more leap forward in understanding the center of our galaxy, another great mystery from beyond the stars moves center stage in our nation's capital. next tuesday congress holding hearings on ufos, as sightings of mysterious aircraft in protected airspace increase, lawmakers want answers. and u.s. officials will be testifying tuesday on the hundreds of reported sightings of unidentified aerial phenomenon no and as for the black hole researchers say getting that picture of it is as difficult as using a standard ground telescope to see a doughnut on the surface of the moon, guys. >> wow. >> wow. that is really something. okay, will, thanks very much. a lot more coming up here on "gma," including the amber heard/johnny depp courtroom battle and the famous hollywood actress expected to take the stand. also, the punishment for those two pilots who failed to pull off a daring stunt in

depp preparing for the next round of their courtroom clash. 36-year-old heard heading back to the stand on monday after testifying last week that depp physically abused her on multiple occasions. >> i remember just trying to get up so i could breathe, so i could tell him that he was really hurting me. >> reporter: heard claiming her ex-husband physically and sexually assaulted her, allegations he denies, and is prepared to fight when his team cross-examines heard o monday. in a statement depp's spokesperson calling heard's testimony, the performance of her life and promising their cross-examination will certainly highlight the many fallacies miss heard has now attempted to pass off as fact. heard's team firing back saying, one of her disappointments is mr. depp's inability to distinguish fact from fiction. as her side prepares to call depp, heard's sister whitney and actress ellen barkin are called to the stand. >> thank you. thank you. >> reporter: barkin who starred in "ocean's 13" and dated depp in the '90s, testified in a previous trial that depp once
threw a wine bottle toward her in a hotel room. something he denies. legal experts are also watching to see whether another of depp's exes, supermodel kate moss could be called as a witness after heard named moss during testimony. >> i just in my head instantly think of kate moss and the stairs and i swung at him. >> reporter: heard referring to a rumor that depp pushed moss down the stairs. legal experts say now depp could call on moss to clear his name and help his case, which is why his attorney was seen smiling and fist pumping after moss' name was said. >> reporter: amber opened the door to that potential testimony. they can now bring kate to testify assuming she's prepared and willing to testify on his behalf that this wasn't true. this didn't happen. >> reporter: heard and depp who were currently locked in a bitter legal battle were seen making eye contact before court broke last week. that moment getting reaction online as millions tune in to watch every moment. and heard will be back on the stand on monday morning and the trial is scheduled to last two
more weeks, george. >> thanks. let's bring in chief legal analyst dan abrams. was it mistake to bring up kate moss? >> yeah, it now means that they can potentially call kate moss. typically you're not allowed to bring in someone to say something didn't happen or this is a good person, but now that she's made reference to a specific incident it is possible that they could call her and i's sort of like a penalty in sports meaning they violated something now we have an opportunity to try and kind of make that up. >> and the court's been on a week long recess. which side benefits the most from that? >> huge advantage for johnny depp's team because amber heard has now been testifying for two days. they now have a week to go through everything she said and prepare for cross-examination. this cross-examination is critical in connection with this case. i mean, if johnny depp's team can successfully portray amber heard as dishonest, inconsistent, that would be enormous for them, so being able to go through everything she said and prepare for the cross-examination is a huge
advantage for them. >> is that their strategy? they should really just go in and do tick by tick by tick. >> every inconsistency is what they want to show. they're hoping that the jury may basically say if we can't believe her on this, then maybe we can't believe what she was saying about the abuse either. that's a strategy lawyers use all the time. that is what they'll try to do here is try and show inconsistencies in her account, not just about the abuse itself but about other issues in an effort to have the jury not believe her. >> but is it enough for them to show that she's not believable in a defamation lawsuit? >> no, but, remember, that johnny depp is the plaintiff here. right? so johnny depp has the burden to prove this and so that puts her in a better position and that's why, you know, it's going to be very important. >> okay. >> very important. all right, dan, thank you so much as always. and we'll turn to more fallout from that failed plane swap stunt above the arizona

plane swap. i regret not sharing this information with my team. >> there is an appeals process and, of course, they will pursue it as they should, but if their appeal is denied and the revocation stands. >> reporter: the faa also proposing a nearly $5,000 fine against aikins for abandoning his pilot seat and operating in a reckless manner. red bull who sponsored the event telling abc news in a statement, this is a matter between the federal aviation administration and the two pilots, but also calling both pilots courageous who have been friends of red bull for many years. the faa says the pilots arizona actions indicate that they currently lack the degree of care, judgment and responsibility required of a certificate holder. now, yes, they can appeal this ruling, but if not, they'll have to wait one year to reapply for their license. michael.

answers from these formula companies. we've learned exclusively that the house oversight committee is launching an investigation, but in the meantime, many store shelves are simply empty. roughly 40% of formula brands are now out of stock and when i pressed the white house about how long this shortage is going to last, the white house simply couldn't say when this crisis, george, is going to actually end. >> mary bruce, thanks. michael. going to turn to the new study all right, george, we're going to turn now to the new study about babies and sids looking at a possible cause of the syndrome. dr. ashton is here and, doc, good morning to you. please tell us about the very, very important study. >> so, michael, this is being called potentially a breakthrough in understanding the cause of sudden infant death syndrome, small study published in "lancet," identified a biomarker that is a substance found in blood samples of babies who had died from sids. this enzyme is known as bche and it is thought to be involved in brain arousal pathways so the drive to take a breath that is
necessary that may be deficient in babies who die from sids so potentially this would represent a target for intervention if you could screen babies, you found they had a low enzyme level, potentially you could improve that. but, again, just preliminary research at this point. >> so, is there anything a parent can do now to reduce it? >> and this campaign on the part of pediatricians has been very, very successful, awareness, it's been out for some time now. we call it back to sleep, so you want to put a baby on their back to go to sleep, do not put blankets in their crib. if possible, breast-feed those babies. that's been associated with a reduction in risk. if it's also possible, sleep with that baby in your room but not in your bed. all of these steps, things that are pretty routine now upon instructions when you take a baby home from the hospital. >> all right, thank you, doc. >> you bet. >> cecilia. we want to celebrate this morning, some of our abc news family as you know, there are so many people working around the clock in front of and behind the
camera here and also online and this week we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of abcnews.com which first launched back in 1997. the site has changed as much as we have over the years including our hair, thank you to all of our colleagues who helped launch this important arm of abc news and who bring us into the future in new ways every single day. >> wow. looking at those images, what, that was clear back then. coming up here on "gma," we have our "gma morning menu." how parents are helping parents get the formula they need for their babies. and prince william and duchess kate are speaking out, the message they want to share with the world. and as food prices are rising, the savings you can find in growing in your own backyard. how gardening can help you beat inflation. lara, tell us about your special guests. >> well, we have a lot going on this morning. if you want rom-com style, melissa garcia is going to show us how to embrace the new fashion trend known as coastal grandma. plus, our own coastal fashion plate.

growing number of cosmetics containing spf offer enough protection? board certified dermatologist dr. rita linkner is here with all these answers. is makeup with sunscreen enough? >> that's a great question. when you're walking down that aisle and looking to pick up a sunscreen, the most important thing is look at the spf number. land between a 30 and 50 and they're not additive. a lot think my makeup as a 15, my sunscreen has a 15. it doesn't add up to 30. you always want to stick between an independent product 30 to 50. >> if you wear a sunscreen with your makeup what do you want to be on the lookout for? >> first things first the label should say broad spectrum. that's how you know you're protecting against uva and uvb rays. uva ages your skin. uvb burns your skin. broad spectrum will control both of those. >> sometimes you see zinc in there. >> if you have a personal history of skin cancer, or family history, that's the one
to pick. >> sunscreens, makeup with tint in them. >> tint is important. it protects against visible light, iron oxides pigments within the foundation or tinted sunscreen. prone to hyperpigmentation, that's the one to go for. >> you're going to show us how to apply makeup and sunscreen. >> let's do it, okay. so i always tell my patients, start with the sunscreen, couple of pumps. >> sunscreen first. >> sunscreen first. on clean skin. >> okay. >> doing a good job. >> areas people forget, tip of the nose, top of the ears, center, rub it all the way in. perfect. and then another big tip, a lot of people feel pasty with their sunscreen, add a lot of vitamin c to it. >> on top of the sunscreen? >> on top of the sunscreen. doing it backwards. >> vitamin c neutralizes a lot of sun damage that gets beyond your spf level. antioxidant. >> and what is this here? >> if you're looking to reapply, in sustained sunlight, powder sunscreens are great for touching up.

hoping to grow their savings should look for plants that thrive a lot in a small space. tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers can all be bountiful options. as are salad greens, a packet of lettuce seeds can cost around $2 and could yield enough for a summer of salads providing hundreds of dollars in savings. >> you have to do a little work and research. >> reporter: if you are thinking of starting a garden at home he suggests starting slow and researching what plants grow best in your area. how often are you buying groceries versus harvesting them? >> significantly less than we used to. it's only proteins and, you know, non-growable things, it's hundreds and hundreds of dollars a month that we no longer have to spend. >> reporter: so, if you're wondering what to stay away from, the national gardening association says stay away from things like potatoes where you can still find them in the store and they're still fairly cheap.
