5:35 pm
media video, as well. david? >> all right, mireya tonight in texas. mireya, thank you. in the meantime, we turn to the severe storms moving up the east coast at this hour. 50 million americans on alert, as i mentioned off the top tonight, for damaging winds, hail, possible tornadoes. washington, d.c., philadelphia, new york, to boston. in fact, take a look at this time lapse video from the storm today rolling in. a lightning strike at the empire state building. quite a scene here in new york. a torrential downpour flooding some new york city streets. and there could be more to come. all of this from a cold front colliding with this intense heat. senior meteorologist rob marciano tracking it all for us, hey, rob. >> reporter: hi, david. it is so oppressive in between these storms, the humidity just hangs in the air. you can feel it. the front is not through yet. so, we still have more storms to come. watches are up for much of new england, all the way down through the mid-atlantic. you see it on the radar scope there. so, the strongest storms have been around d.c., warrenton reporting 67-mile-per-hour wind gusts there. the front does push through, so, the next couple of hours will be dicey and things begin to calm down after midnight.
5:36 pm
a much different air mass tomorrow. you will feel it. they're feeling it in the pacific northwest, as the temperatures warm up. look at these numbers you're going to see. heat warnings posted for the coastal areas near portland, where temperatures could exceed 100 degrees tomorrow. the bad thing about this heat wave, it's going to be another long duration heat wave that will last at least through the end of this week. david? >> all right, rob, our thanks to you. and we're going to stay on the heat now for a moment, because there are images coming in from dallas at this hour. a large fire broke out, burning several homes. these are the images just as we came on tonight. five homes in the area in flames now. firefighters trying to save the others there. temperatures soaring there for weeks. 104 degrees in dallas late today. they bloke broke several daily records in the last week in a stretch of relentless heat, of course, helping to fuel these fires tonight. we'll continue to stay on this. in the west, the raging wildfire there, as well, the oak fire, racing through the bone dry brush near yosemite national park. flames already burning through 25 square miles. nearly 6,000 people forced to
5:37 pm
evacuate. homes already gone. the air tonight not safe to breathe. the smoke reaching the san francisco bay area. this is the smoke from the wildfire seen from the international space station. and abc's chief meteorologist ginger zee is in the fire zone for us tonight. >> reporter: tonight, the race to contain california's largest wildfire of the year. the oak fire igniting friday in mariposa county. already engulfing multiple structures and threatening more tan 3,000. 6,000 people displaced. a crucial highway leading into yosemite national park, shut down. cal fire bringing us to the battle lines. that whole hillside, for example, was torched. as the flames climb this hill, they get higher and higher and the frefighters have put in a dozer line. where you can see that dirt there. that should stop the flames before it gets any higher. more than 2,500 firefighters on the front lines battling steep terrain and heat to try and save homes. and from above, an all-out aerial assault. and why is this place unique?
5:38 pm
and why is this happening now? >> this place is unique in the sense that this was devastated by the drought and it had bark beetle infestation. and that bark beetle infestation created tons and tons of available fuel. >> reporter: this is the third wildfire in mariposa county in just two weeks. the washburn fire that threatened those legendary sequoias is still burning tonight. david, right where i'm standing, we are in exceptional drought. that is the highest level. parts of the west are now seeing their driest stretch in 1,200 years. a 22-year mega-drought that absolutely has to do with why the fires burn so quickly in a fire like the oak fire. now, there are a lot of other factors, land use and management. you have to talk about the bark beetle. but you can't leave out climate change. a recent study says that by the year 2050, we could see more uncontrolled, extreme wildfires, up to 30%, all due to climate change, david. >> and of course we'll stay on this here. ginger zee with us again tonight. ginger, thank you. we turn next this evening to president biden recovering from covid, working in the white
5:39 pm
house residence. his doctor reporting today that his symptoms have almost completely resolved now. the president, for his part, saying he's feeling great. this image tonight, the president at the residence, tweeting this photo from the white house balcony, taking calls his, his german shepherd commander keeping him company there. and the president well aware of a key issue this week when he returns to the west wing, the economy, and whether the u.s. is in a recession. awaiting new key indicators mid-week. here's our senior national correspondent terry moran tonight. >> reporter: day four and president biden is rapidly recovering from covid. white house physician dr. kevin o'connor reporting today after evaluating the president that biden's "symptoms have almost completely resolved." the president posting a photo of himself in a suit on the white house balcony with his dog, commander, and the quip, "took some calls this morning with man's best co-worker." and biden worked through the day, holding a number of events, and taking a few questions from reporters. >> mr. president, how are you feeling with covid? >> i'm feeling great. you know, i've had two full
5:40 pm
nights of sleep, all the way through. >> when do you think you'll be back to work in person, mr. president? >> well, i hope i'm back to work in person by the end of this week. >> reporter: the white house says biden was likely infected with the ba.5 covid subvariant, now the dominant strain in the u.s., and that he continues taking the anti-viral drug paxlovid. >> so tomorrow will be day five. he will -- once he has a negative test after day five, he can end his isolation. cdc guidance suggests that he wear a mask when he's around others. >> so, let's bring in terry moran live in washington tonight. terry, as the president recovers here, he knows these key economic indicators come out this week. he was pressed, in fact, today on whether this country is in fact headed into a recession. >> reporter: he was, david. and those key indicators, home sales, consumer confidence, spending, inflation, the big one on thursday, economic growth, will tell the tale. the rule of thumb, two straight quarters of negative growth equals a recession, but the white house doesn't want to use the r-word.
5:41 pm
officials pointing to the jobs market, which remains historically strong. and the president saying, god willing, i don't think we're going to see a recession. david? >> terry moran live in washington. terry, thanks, as always. next tonight, that new video from the january 6th committee today showing what the former president was unwilling to do the day after the january 6th attack. the committee showing the original script written for the former president. we've already seen some of the outtakes of that address. the president refusing to say, quote, if election is over, saying he does not want to say that. tonight here, the new reporting and the new reveal from the committee. which lines were crossed out, trump told the committee. ivank- here's rachel scott tonight. >> reporter: today, the january 6th committee releasing new video showing just how reluctant donald trump was to condemn his supporters who stormed the capitol, even after the country and the world witnessed the riot unfold on live television. the committee showing the original draft of a statement trump recorded on january 7th, the day after the insurrection. >> as you can see throughout the
5:42 pm
document, there are lines crossed out. there are some -- there's some words added in. do you recognize the handwriting? >> it looks like my father's handwriting. >> reporter: trump's son-in-law jared kushner was asked why those lines were crossed out. >> it looks like here that he crossed out that he was "directing the department of justice to ensure all law breakers are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. we must send a clear message not with mercy but with justice. legal consequences must be swift and firm." do you know why he wanted that crossed out? >> i don't know. >> he also has crossed out, "i want to be very clear, you do not represent me, you do not represent our movement." do you remember -- do you know why he crossed that language out of the statement? >> i don't know. >> reporter: former white house officials have testified trump had to be convinced to make any
5:43 pm
comments at all. >> we felt like it was important to further call for de-escalation. >> reporter: one of trump's closest aides, john mcentee, testifying kushner turned to him to help push the president. >> he knew since i'm always with him that, hey, if you ask your opinion, you know try to nudge this along, this will help everything cool down. so that's what i did. >> was the implication that the president was in some ways reluctant to give that speech? >> yeah. >> okay, what do you base that on? >> the fact that somebody has to tell me to nudge it along. >> all right, rachel scott back live on the hill for us again tonight. rachel, we know the january 6th committee plans to resume hearings come september, but lawmakers have made it clear even today again that they'll release more evidence along the way like we saw today. in the meantime, you're reporting on another major headline tonight involving all this, we know the justice department is pursuing its own investigation into january 6th, and you've learned that a top trump administration official has now testified before the grand jury? >> reporter: yes, david. marc short, the former chief of staff to vice president mike pence, was subpoenaed by federal prosecutors. now we have learned he has
5:44 pm
appeared before a federal grand jury. our cameras caught him as he was leaving the courthouse. short is the most senior trump official that we know of to have appeared before that federal grand jury and it comes as the justice department is expanding its investigation into january 6th. sources tell us they are focused on everything from the planning of the rally that day to how it was funded, david. >> all right, rachel scott live on the hill. thank you, rachel. next this evening, to the monkeypox outbreak and tonight, the world health organization has now declared it a global health emergency. in the u.s., cases have doubled. and two children are now among those infected. abc's steve osunsami at the cdc tonight. >> reporter: public health officials tonight are fighting global exhaustion over the spread of disease as they try to put more attention on the monkeypox virus. the world health organization is now calling monkeypox a global public health emergency. harun tulunay in london says it felt like he was going to die. >> every single medication i could find, nothing helped. >> reporter: here in the u.s., authorities are still trying to
5:45 pm
decide if they need to say there's also an emergency stateside. in just the last few weeks, reported cases here have doubled to nearly 2,900. but no deaths. for now, they say most of the people getting sick are gay or bisexual men, but the experts warn that this virus can be spread by direct contact with skin, or even through towels and bedsheets. >> monkeypox is a contact virus. and what that means is that transmission happens when someone is infected and symptomatic. >> reporter: this is likely how two children -- one in california and another in washington, d.c. -- got sick with monkeypox at home, from someone in the family. few people die from the disease, and the symptoms -- the fever, headache, rash, and blisters -- usually heal on their own. the disease isn't new, and ther's already a vaccine. the biden administration says that 800,000 more doses are coming soon. but in cities with large gay populations, the lines are long and supplies are running low. here at the cdc, they're encouraging anyone who is at a higher risk of getting exposed
5:46 pm
to the virus to get the vaccine. and that includes some health care workers who treated six sick patients. overall, this recommendation, david, is for 1.5 million americans. david? >> steve osunsami at the cdc for us. thanks, steve. overseas tonight, and to the war in ukraine. the key words tonight from russia's foreign minister. is russia now signaling it wants to overthrow president zelenskyy? as ukraine tonight signals a major new offensive could be coming. our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell from ukraine again tonight. >> reporter: tonight, signs ukraine may be on the brink of launching a major new counteroffensive to drive out russian forces in the south. this bridge in kherson, crucial to russia resupplying its forces in the region, damaged by ukraine's u.s.-made himars rockets. a ukrainian official now claiming kherson will be liberated from the russians by september. news of the counter offensive comes less than 24 hours after the kremlin said it wanted to oust president zelenskyy.
5:47 pm
>> we will help ukrainian people to get rid of the regime which is absolutely anti-people and anti-historical, if you wish. >> reporter: meanwhile, russian missiles striking the key port of odesa, where millions of tons of grain have been stuck in warehouses. up to 3 million tons of grain exports a month expected to start soon. tonight, the ukrainians saying two key ports will be operational again this week, following last week's u.n.-brokered deal involving russia and ukraine. david, kherson was the first city to be taken by russia at the start of this war. and if the ukrainians are successful, it would be a major morale booster. and it would signal to america and the west that its support is paying off. but of course, failure will be a huge blow and will only encourage russia to seize more land. david? >> all right, ian pannell in ukraine tonight. ian, thank you. >> closer to home now, and north of the border tonight, pope francis and an historic apology while visiting canada. the pope on a mission to apologize and make amends to the
