"Possibility of COVID-19 reinfect..."
" Turn out of the latest on the coronavirus emergency and that shifts by the CDC over when and if you should get tested. This as cases colleges across the country are now climbing and there are new worries about patients becoming reinfected. ABC's Trevor all joins us with the latest on this and Trevor. This is all happening of course as flu season is now approaching. Of course, it is a lot to juggle at the same time and there is some good news this morning that across the country in the past week, the number of new cases in deaths decreases substantially. But the CDC has now made this big change to its guidelines, saying people who don't have symptoms don't necessarily need to get tested even if they've been exposed and that's a bit of a jarring shift as a number of schools in universities report big new outbreaks. Overnight, a major change to the CDC COVID-19 guidelines. Now saying if you have no symptoms, you don't necessarily need a test, even if you may have been exposed, a direct shift from what director Robert Redfield told ABC last month. Anyone who thinks they may be infected independent of symptoms should be and should get a test. The update comes as cases rise at American colleges and universities, more than 530 at the University of Alabama, nearly 160 at the University of Missouri and even at the University of Southern California where classes are mostly online, school officials are warning of an alarming increase of 43 cases in off campus housing. People are throwing parties. I'm just hoping that students come to their senses. In many school districts across the country, students are going into quarantine, putting pressure on parents. They have no idea what to do. Jennifer is the mother of a Mississippi fourth grader who's entire grade of more than 200 students is now in quarantine after multiple teachers tested positive. Jennifer is a teacher herself, she's now having to coach other parents through the virtual learning process. Parents don't understan..." + 40%

" Hurricane Laura is also expected to impact Houston, which as we saw got hit hard by Hurricane Harvey just three years ago. Now they are also battling a major COVID outbreak more than 100,000 cases in that county alone. Matt Gutman is there in Houston Methodist Hospital with a look on how they're preparing for this storm. Good morning, Matt. Hey, good morning, Cecilia. The feeling at Houston Methodist and really across Houston, the fourth largest city is not one more thing. Now Houston's a killi seal, of course, is flooding. It's low flat and full of tunnels, which is why the mechanics here are going to start pushing closed this massive flood gate, which they hope is going to seal this entire warn of tunnels and the garage here where people have actually died in previous storms. I've spoken officials here and in Beaumont. They're concerned about their COVID patients and their staff had to feed them, had to house them during the storm and have social distancing. Also, there are going to be thousands of, thousands of hurricane evacuees are going to be staying with family friends and in shelters and trying to get them to social distance is going to be concerning. Also, there are fears of additional outbreaks because of the storm. George, we are worried about that. Okay, Matt. Thanks so much. Hi, everyone. George Stephanopoulos here.

"3rd night of protests turn deadly"
" And at least three people were shot, two of which have died overnight, when demonstrations against the police shooting of Jacob Blake turned violent. Wisconsin's governor declared a state of emergency as protesters ignored a curfew for the third night in a row. They said cars, businesses, and homes on fire. The state is now calling in more national guard troops and Blake's family is begging for an end to the violence. ABC's Alex Perez has the latest. Get off! The night spiraling into complete chaos and turning deadly in Kenosha. We've seen at least four people of hand guns running around here. This graphic video showing a man running down the street with a firearm, a crowd chasing behind him. He's no f***ing shot, the man. The man then falls to the ground, raises the firearm, and begins shooting. According to officials, two people were killed, one injured. It's unclear if the shooter caused the fatalities. The FBI now joining the investigation of the incident. This, the third night of violence following the shooting of Jacob Blake, who family members say was unarmed when police shot him in the back. This video shows Blake in the moments before he was shot, appearing to struggle with officers before getting up, walking around to the driver's side, appearing to lean in when an officer pulls his shirt, shoots him in the back. Seven shots ring out. BANG! Blake is in the ICU paralyzed from the waist down, but this morning the family has gotten some good news. They're hoping that when they press releases and things go back to normal within his body, that he will be able to move again with his lower left. And Alex Perez joins me now from Kenosha. Alex, we heard from Jacob Blake's family, they are begging for this violence to stop. What are you hearing from community leaders? Hey, Diane. Well, community leaders are also calling for peaceful protest and leaders of the movement and they are concerned that some of the messaging here might get lost. They say this is about j..." + 63%

"and for more on hurricane laura meteorologist greg dutra is here in the studio with me greg what's the timeline of this storm we heard ginger say starts at midnight it starts at about midnight probably landfall somewhere between midnight and four o'clock in the morning is the window for that and this storm is a drag racer it's going to move very quickly which actually makes tracking its landfall i'm predicting its landfall just a little bit harder during the overnight hours a little update here a nice little ragged eye formed in this looks like it's obscured by some high clouds now would expect that to form later on in terms of that timeline and strength too look at this it gets up to a major hurricane category four that's a new update from the overnight too with winds up to 130 miles per hour looks like it weakened somewhat as it moves on shore but take a look at hurricane loris track here moving right into what is basically the border of louisiana and texas kind of uh right along cameron and that's the most concerning part of the storm is right there underneath the lake in lake charles where we can expect to see the highest winds combined with the very quick forward motion of this so you've got the speed of this drag racer of a storm and then of course the high winds up to 130 miles per hour here are those gusts 112 and cameron as i said that really looks like the spot that gets the dirty the most intense part of the storm moving inland here at three o'clock in the morning even st charles gusting up to 100 miles per hour and just go farther north shreveport texarkana all these spots will see probably tropical storm force winds if not even higher than that but the biggest threat as ginger was mentioning is probably going to be that storm surge because of the fast forward motion because of the very high winds we could see storm surge values that are 10 to 15 feet no make no mistake about it people will lose power people will see very significant flooding and this..." + 29%

Cookville's double springs church of Christ members lifting our country up in prayer and providing for those impacted by tragedy. But tonight, I want to talk to you about another kind of hero. The kind Democrats don't recognize because they don't fit into their narrative. I'm talking about the heroes of our law enforcement and armed services. Leftist try to turn the mental villains. They want to cancel them. But I'm here to tell you, these heroes can't be canceled. Tennessee is full of them. After all, we're the volunteer state. My dad served in the Army in World War II. When he came home, he put on another uniform and for 30 years volunteered to help our underfunded Sheriff's Department. I'm reminded of him whenever I see compassion and selflessness in others. When I see law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every single day to keep our community safe in spite of the hatred thrown at them. When I see the heroes who volunteer to serve our country, putting their lives on the line for our freedom, many of these heroes call Tennessee home and we could not be more proud of the brave men and women of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell. The common thread between them is a deep-seated desire to serve a cause larger than themselves. They don't believe their country owes them anything. They believe they owe their country and their fellow men. As hard as Democrats try, they can't cancel our heroes. They can't contest their bravery and they can't dismiss the powerful sense of service that lives deep in their souls. So they try to defund them. Our military, our police, even ICE.

"Sen. Joni Ernst delivers speech ..."
" Hello everyone and thank you for inviting me into your home this evening. It's truly a privilege. My name is Joni Ernst. I was raised on a small family farm here in Iowa where I learned the importance of faith, hard work and service. I worked my way through college, then dedicated my life to serving my country as a local official of Italian commander in the military and as a US senator. Service. It's more than a word to me. It's a mission, a way of life. It's what brought me to Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 2008 when I was in the National Guard. We saw historic floods that swept through the communities. We lent a helping hand to our fellow Iowans who were literally under water. We thought we had seen the worst, but 12 years later, these same communities have faced an even more devastating disaster. The recent Durecho storm. If you don't live in Iowa, you may not have heard much about it at first. While reporters here in the state were in the trenches covering the equivalent of a category to hurricane, most of the national media looked the other way. To them, Iowa is still just fly over country. Houses, farms were destroyed about one-third of our crops here were damaged. In some cases, these storms wiped out a lifetime of work, and yet Iowa farmers didn't hesitate to grab their chainsaws and check on their neighbors. Our farmers live every day with that sense of service, the stewards of the land, the ones who feed and fuel the world. President Trump quickly signed an emergency declaration for Iowa to provide relief. And of course, when President Trump came to see the rapids, the national media finally did too. For years, I've worked closely with the president for farmers in Iowa and across the country. We scrapped Obama and Biden's punishing waters of the United States rule, which would have regulated about 97 percent of land in Iowa. In some cases, even puddles, it would have been a nightmare for farmers. The president delivered on major trade deals with Japan and the U..." + 48%

"Hurricane Laura makes landfall"
" This morning, Hurricane Laura making landfall. The rain has started to come down pretty fiercely and this is just the beginning. You can just hear the storm above me. I mean, it's just intense just when you think you may have gone through the worst of it. You can see another really strong blast come through with lots of rain, lots of wind. The storm slamming the Gulf coast bringing heavy rain and gale force winds with like Charles Louisiana right in the Bullseye. I'm protected by this building right now, but once I step out as you can see, it is a much different story and going out even farther is just too dangerous. That's when you have to worry about things like projectiles flying through the air tens of thousands already without power as a coastline is battered by powerful wind gusts and sheets of rain 911 might not work due to wind wind damage from those potentially devastating winds. The water levels already inundating this university. They've got eight or 10 hours more of this and it's only going to get worse and now new concerns about the nation's oil supply. Beaumont is home to 55% of national strategic oil reserves. There are some of the biggest refineries in the country here. Most of the country's jet fuel is here. And so as the sheriff told me here earlier, if this area gets impacted, the entire country is going to feel earlier in the day. Laura upgraded to a catastrophic offenders.

" We want to go over to Jeffrey Hall, mayor of Alexandria, Louisiana. Mayor Hall, thank you for joining us. Tell me a little bit about what you're seeing in your area and what message you want to get out to your residents in the country. Well, right now we're still in the dark as it relates to no sunlight. I hit this particular time, but the rain is still coming. It really fears and the eye of that wall of the storm is still about, I would say, 60 to 70 miles southwest of us. So we yet to feel the brunt of that. We know it's been down greater from a 5, 2, 3 category. And we're going to receive at some point 80 to 100 mile gusting winds. So we still going to have outages. I would like others to know that we have about 10,000 customers that's without power. I'm sorry, 10,000 households without power at this particular time. And I would say we can't get out and we school power because of that high velocity of the wind. We'll have to wait till the say for the workers to go out and do what needs to be done where we are assessing what we have. And we're going to have to go out and do what needs to be done. So we're going to have to wait until the end of the day. And we have to wait until the end of the day. And we're going to have to wait until the end of the day. And we want to be safe. We want to be safe. And get everybody out and protect everybody's best we can. So if we get more daylight and things continue to pass on, we'll be able to better assess our situation and give a little bit more clarity as to duration that we expect out is just a bit more accurate as well as the situation that may arise on the continuous rainfall. But right now things are going by as good as could be expected. We ask everybody to just be patient and be cautious. Don't try things. Be careful of those power lines that's on the ground. The trees that are wrapped up in them don't have so many things not alive or electrified because more than likely the areas on touch it call us at the numbers..." + 78%

"How to buy a car in a pandemic"
" All right, during this pandemic, a lot of folks are exploring different options for getting around. That means there's actually been a rise in people looking for a car. Where do you even want to start here? Here with the info to put us in the driver's seat, managing auto-editor at Consumer Reports, John Linkov. Thank you so much for being with us here. So what do we do? Car dealerships, everybody had to make an adjustment during the pandemic and car dealers they certainly had to make some kind of a pit. Yeah, they certainly did. The good car dealerships are doing virtual sales where they're doing walk-arounds via video and they're sending pictures to their clients. When clients do come in, they're going to be social distancing by having masks. They may even let you have a test drive that's without even having a salesperson in the car. And then you can also do all of your paperwork and you can do all of the negotiations via the phone, via online. You may not even have to ever set foot into a car dealer. But people should we feel pretty good still about going in and doing a test drive, I mean as far as safety. Sure. Again, the good dealerships are really paying attention to this and they all have to really be good because it is a competitive market. People are really wanting to go out and get cars. They're chomping at the bit. So if you feel safe going out to the mall or to the supermarket and such, know that the dealers are going to be cleaning the cars as well. They will clean the cars. They will have masks, social distancing. They're going to keep it separate as far as test drives go on. It's up to your comfort. If you want to buy a car, you really should go out and at least experience it and make sure that's the car for you, how it fits you with sight lines, comfort, etc. But you don't have to do it. If you focus in on one car, you know it's the one for you. You could do everything remotely. Okay. In pandemic or not, people always have the debate. I want to bu..." + 64%

" We are a nation that at its best loves, protects, and helps our fellow Americans. Today, we see pain, hurt, and destruction in the ashes of wildfires and the damage of Hurricane Laura. We encourage everyone to continue following guidance from your local authorities to stay safe. And Joe and I pledge to be there for those who's lives have been turned upside down. Those who will need help from neighbors, strangers, and our government to make it through, to build back, to restore your lives and your communities. We also see pain, hurt, and destruction in the aftermath of yet another black man shot by police. Jacob Blake shot seven times in the back and broad daylight in front of his three young sons, seven times in the back, in broad daylight in front of his three young sons. As Vice President Biden put it, the shots fired at Mr. Blake pierced the soul of our nation. It's sickening to watch. It's all too familiar. And it must end. Thankfully, he is alive today. But he is fighting for his life, and he shouldn't have to be. My heart goes out to the Blake family as they endure an ordeal that is tragically common in our country. Joe and I spoke with them yesterday. They are an amazing group of people with extraordinary courage, even in their pain and their grief, even as they seek justice for their son. They spoke about the need to end the violence and heal our nation. I've had conversations like this with far too many mothers and fathers, but you will see and hear no one with more courage, more character, and more moral clarity. People are rightfully angry and exhausted. And after the murders of Brianna, and George, and Amad, and so many others, it's no wonder people are taken to the streets. And I support them. We must always defend peaceful protest and peaceful protesters. We should not confuse them with those looting and committing acts of violence, including the shooter who was arrested for murder. And make no mistake, we will not let these vigilantes and extremis..." + 33%

"this convention has generally been light on policy so we asked our kira phillips to take a look into what we know about the president's plans for what he will do if he gets elected to another four years [Applause] it's the chant every president running for a second term wants to hear [Applause] if you want to really drive him crazy you say 12 more years and for president trump he thrives off it we're getting ready to do things like nobody's ever seen before but when asked in june what people will see in a second term like never before a less than clear answer what are your top priority items for a second term well one of the things that will be really great you know the word experience is still good i always say talent is more important than experience i've always said that but the word experience is a very important word it's in a very important meeting i never did this before i never slept over in washington it wasn't my thing i was from manhattan from new york now i know everybody and i have great people in the administration a much different response versus 2016 then candidate trump had a pretty clear sales pitch boost the economy take on china on trade and secure the border we are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration so what about a second trump term agenda what exactly would that look like our country can go in a horrible horrible direction or in an even greater direction and before the plague came in from china that's where we were going we were going in a direction like we had never seen the most successful economy in the history of our country with 180 000 covid 19 related deaths and more than 27 million americans claiming unemployment the president says he's all about bringing back the pre-covet economy we're going to create 10 million jobs i think very easily in the first 10 months and this week at the rnc he hammered home that he's ready we'll continue with our military we've built the strongest military by far also we're goi..." + 51%

"let's bring in david aldridge editor-in-chief of the athletic d.c thanks so much for joining us tonight my pleasure now we saw that frustration boil over yesterday starting with the nba as players walked off the court and then spreading throughout the sports world as games were postponed in multiple sports what are you hearing now from nba players and coaches as far as how they're approaching what to do next well you know they're going to meet with the owners of the teams on thursday afternoon and try to lay out specifically what it is they want from the from the teams in the league going forward the league's already and the owners have committed 300 million dollars towards various social justice issues but the players i think want even more meat on the bone um and want to see um some specifics um whether that has to do with the election or going forward or addressing um legislative actions as the bucks had asked of the milwaukee or the wisconsin state legislature um they want specifics about what owners are willing to do and what the league's willing to do before going forward after george floyd's death there were questions from some players on whether finishing the season even made sense but they wanted to be able to use their platform to speak out on cases like brianna taylor so what's your sense now do the players still think that they can have an impact in getting some action on addressing these cases of police violence or is there a feeling of of resignation i think it's a little bit of both i think some of the players are frustrated that all of the work that they put into it and the league put into uh raising social justice awareness um still winds up being overwhelmed by this latest shooting in this in in kenosha and there was a frustration there a real frustration amongst the players the sense that they don't think anything's being accomplished and they wanted to kind of re-center people's focus and attention and i think they felt like walking out on wed..." + 65%

" I'm Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and a public servant. Before I begin, I'd like to say that our hearts go out to the Blake family and the other families who've been impacted by the tragic events in Kenosha. As Jacob's mother has urged the country, let's use our hearts, our love and our intelligence to work together, to show the rest of the world how humans are supposed to treat each other. America is great when we behave greatly. In order to succeed and change, we must first come together and love of our fellow citizens. History reminds us that necessary change comes through hope and love, not senseless and destructive violence. Abraham Lincoln once said to an America divided that, quote, your purpose then, plainly stated, is that you will destroy the government unless you be allowed to construe and enforce the Constitution as you please on all points and dispute between you and us. You will rule or ruin in all events, unquote. These words of warning are relevant today. We have a choice. Do we want big government that controls our lives from cradle to grave? Or do we believe in the power and wisdom of the people and their ability to self-governing with help from a limited federal government? Our president, Donald J. Trump, believes in the people. He is one of us. He makes promises and he keeps them. He is transparent and we certainly know what he's thinking. He does not submit to political correctness or to its enforcers, the media. He is real. Right now, we need real. We need courage. We can't power in the corner and hope that no one calls us a name. Believing that will keep us safe. That is not courage. And that will not lead us to a good and just place. We must remember all those who sacrificed everything in order to give us freedom. And we must be willing to do the same for those who come after us. President Trump does not dabble in identity politics. He wants everyone to succeed and believes in the adage a rising tide lifts all boats. Many on the othe..." + 57%

"Parents of slain ISIS hostage gi..."
" My name is Marsha Mueller. This is my husband, Carl. Her daughter, Kayla, was taken as a hostage and murdered by ISIS. From a young age, Kayla was amazing. She taught herself languages, how to write music, how to play guitar. She worked with troubled youth, military veterans, and Native Americans. Every where Kayla went, people smiled. Kayla had a gift to be able to see the world. Through someone else's eyes, she became a humanitarian aid worker. And when she was helping children at an orphanage in India, Kayla wrote, I find God in the suffering eyes reflected in mine. If this is how you are revealed to me, this is how I will forever seek you. She went to Turkey to help Syrian refugees in 2012. In August 2013, she was asked by another aid worker to cross the border into Syria to help at a hospital. On August 4, 2013, ISIS terrorists stopped her vehicle and took her captive. Kayla was mostly held in a 12 by 12 cell and solitary confinement. It was cold and dirty. ISIS terrorists shined bright lights in her face. They shaved her head. They beat her and tortured her. The leader of ISIS, Al-Bubakar al-Baghdadi, raped her repeatedly. For 18 months, she endured. And we endured an agonizing back and forth between us, the Obama administration, and ISIS. We put all our faith in the government, but the government let us down. President Obama refused to meet with us until ISIS had already beheaded other Americans. To this day, we never heard from Joe Biden. Instead, the Obama administration had hid behind policy so much that we felt hopeless when they kept us from negotiating to save Kayla's life. The administration showed more concern for the terrorists in Guantanamo than the American hostages in Syria. The military prepared a rescue mission, but the White House delayed it. By the time it went forward, Kayla had been moved to another location. After 18 months of brutal torture, we learned from ISIS that Kayla had been killed. The Obama administration kept telling us they ..." + 62%

Take care and have a great weekend. The first steps are to gardener attention and they have everybody's attention around the world right now. If not now, when... This isn't just about basketball. We aren't just basketball players. We need to understand that when most of us go home, we still are black. Despite the overwhelming plea for change, there has been no action. So our focus today cannot be on basketball. We're the ones getting killed. We're the ones getting shot. All you do is keep hearing a fear. It's... It's amazing. Why we keep loving this country and this country, this not love is back. This is not a strike, this is not a boycott. This is affirmatively a day of informed action and mobilization. I think the most difficult part is to see like people still don't care. Being a black man in America is not easy so... In his heart to tell your 14 year old son that I worry about him when he walks out that door. We got this little guy right here that we see every day, his life matters. We all heard, we all tired of just seeing the same thing over and over again. And everybody just expect us to be okay. We are expected to play at a high level, give maximum effort and hold each other accountable. We hold ourselves to that standard and in this moment we are demanding the same from lawmakers and law enforcement. I know people get tired of him and we say it but we are scared as black people in America. Black men, black men, black kids, we are terrified. The people arguing that he deserved it. The people arguing that, oh well he should have this, he shouldn't have died. He shouldn't have died. We are going to be the generation that this mental system embraces a wasn't for all.

"Actor Chadwick Boseman dead at 43"
" We begin tonight with the sudden and very tragic death sending shockwaves across the country. Actor Chadwick Boseman died at the age of 43, following a private four-year battle with Colin Cancer. Boseman inspiring millions with his roles, making seven movies while quietly undergoing surgeries and chemotherapy treatments. He's perhaps best known for his groundbreaking role right here in Black Panther, a watershed moment for African American filmmakers and audiences alike. Boseman also portraying black icons like Jackie Robinson, James Brown, and Thurgood Marshall. His passing coming on the same day, Major League Baseball honored the real Jackie Robinson. Tonight, the endless stream of tributes pouring in from fans, co-stars, and leaders passed in prison on what he and his roles meant to them. ABC's Janae Norman leads us off. Tonight, the overwhelming outpouring of grief for a star gone too soon. He brought real heroes and revered legends to life on the big screen from Thurgood Marshall and Reggie Huffland's Marshall. And Mr. Spells attorney, Thurgood Marshall. To the godfather of soul as James Brown and get on up. Heave! Gotta beat him. To baseball icon Jackie Robinson in 42. Robinson off. Chadwick Boseman commanded the screen. We're good enough forever. And he helps change the culture and his most famous role as Black Panther. What happens now? Determines. What happens? To the rest of the world. Boseman as King Tachala transformed Hollywood. For many Black Americans, offering representation long overdue and an unmatched sense of pride. To be young gifted in Black, we all know what it's like to be told that there is not a place for you to be featured. We could create a world that exemplified a world that we wanted to see. Accomplishing so much in just a few short years, all while waging a personal and private battle.

"The life and legacy of Chadwick ..."
" Now to the passing of a young icon, Chadwick Boseman, the actor, lost to cancer at just 43 years old. Tonight, the tributes continue, including from some of his youngest fans who found their superhero in him. Here's ABC's Janay Norman. Tonight, paying tribute to a king, so many grieving the loss of actor Chadwick Boseman. We're good, though, forever! Best known for bringing Black Panther to life, and for the first time giving millions of kids a superhero who look like them. His youngest fans honoring their king to chawa, a superhero on screen, and role model in real life. They're superheroes. You want to be a superhero? Oh, me and it's not all about being a superhero. It's also about being a good person, and that's why Black Panther. It's my favorite. The announcement of Boseman's death, detailing his quiet battle with colon cancer, liked more than 7 million times. Now the most liked tweet ever, Black Panther director Ryan Cougar writing tonight even he was in the dark. I realize that he was living with his illness the entire time I knew him, because he was a caretaker, a leader, and a man of faith, dignity, and pride. He shielded his collaborators from his suffering. Students at Howard University, Boseman's alma mater, holding a moment of silence. The school's president calling Boseman a deep thinker who had a deep passion for writing and uplifting his people. And he did just that in this 2018 commencement speech. I don't know what your future is, but if you are willing to take the heart away, the more complicated one, the one with more failures at first, their successes, the one that has ultimately proven to have more meaning, more victory, more glory, that you will not regret it. One interview, touching on the timing of Boseman's death, was from actor producer Esa Rae saying she didn't know why this one hurt so badly, writing maybe it's because his grace, class, and kindness was so rare, or maybe it's because we didn't need to see another Black man's life cut..." + 11%

No power or water for thousands amidst sweltering southern heat. At least 18 are already dead. Here's ABC senior meteorologist Rob Marciano. Tonight growing desperation in Louisiana. Hundreds of thousands of people still in dire need. No electricity or water. In hard hit Lake Charles, many are living in their cars with temperatures feeling like the triple digits. We just do the best that we can. If it rains, we stand out in the rain just to cool ourselves off. This new drone video showing Hurricane Laura's destruction along this street. At this Walmart hundreds of storm victims lining up for food and supplies. We were just passing by and I saw this evasion army over there and then as we pulled by we saw another line over here and we jumped in it. The city's mayor, Pania Grim picture. Almost every building severely damaged saying they're trying to make the best out of a bunch of bad options. Residents need help. I'm emotional about my neighborhood but now okay I have to come back. I have to figure out ways how to help my city. And the medical staff in one of the areas last remaining hospitals still open powering through. That's the biggest issue I think is uncertainty from the staff that haven't been able to get out and those that have been able to get out and seeing that they've had you know devastation to their home you know. So your staff's having to work here knowing that their home is then damaged or destroyed. Some of them are you. An additional stress for those doctors and nurses. Let's get right to Rob who's just back from the storm zone. Rob Good evening. Hi Tom.

"colon cancer took bozeman's life after a four-year private battle joining us now for more on this particular type of cancer and tips for prevention is dr j bott good morning to you doctor thanks for being with us good morning arielle thanks for having me the american cancer society reports that african americans have the highest colorectal cancer rates of any racial groups in the united states tell us why they're so disproportionately affected sir well one i just want to say my condolences to the bozeman family and grateful for the inspiration and talent that chadwick shared with all of us and this is really a wake-up call i think we don't know the complete answer to this question but it is being studied aggressively but we do have evidence suggesting the following african-americans have lower rates of screening which plays an important role they also potentially have higher genetic predisposition and then there's a big environmental role in this country lifestyle factors diet rates of obesity smoking lack of exercise tobacco alcohol diabetes but importantly we often find that african-americans present with cancer on the right side of the colon that could be more aggressive and that's important because sigmoidoscopy is one of the screening tests only looks at the left side not the right side and we know that african americans are more likely to develop colorectal cancer at a younger age and be at more advanced stages when diagnosed and so the other systemic factors that are important is that underserved communities are at risk there's poor lack of access to care i see patients often who have not seen a doctor in three years in five years in 10 years and so underneath colorectal cancer could be brewing and then there's stigma and family history which often sometimes these fam individuals don't know their family history and bozeman was pretty young to be diagnosed with colon cancer the majority of cases occur in people older than 50 so what should people do to prev..." + 61%

" We turn to politics now, Joe Biden in a new phase of his campaign, traveled to an old steel mill in Pittsburgh, where he spoke out forcefully against looting, rioting, and President Trump. And said the president can't stop the violence because he's part of the problem. Here's ABC's Terry Moran. Joe Biden in Pittsburgh in a rare campaign stop and a blistering speech, blasting President Trump for stoking violence and division in America for his own political gain. Fires are burning and we have a president who fangs the flames, rather than fighting the flames. He can't stop the violence because for years he's fallen at it. The Democratic candidate repeated his condemnation of the violence that has broken out in several cities in recent months. Riding is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. Setting fires is not protesting. None of this is protesting. It's lawlessness, plain and simple. And those who do it should be prosecuted. President Trump tries to portray Joe Biden as a far left supporter of violence in the streets. Biden shrugging it off. You know me. Ask yourself. Do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters? Really? I want to say from America, say from COVID, say from crime and looting, say from racially motivated violence, say from bad cops. Let me be crystal clear. Say from four more years of Donald Trump. It is Trump, Biden argued, who is a toxic presence in America and a failed leader. Mr. Trump, you want to talk about fear? Do you know if people are afraid of America? They're afraid they're going to get COVID. They're afraid they're going to get sick and die. And that is a no small part because of you. Late today, the president fired back. We have to stop this horrible left-wing ideology that seems to be permeating our country. And basically it's weakness, it's weakness on behalf of Democrat politicians.

"Mystery jet packs seen in New Yo..."
" Now to that mysterious scare in the sky after multiple pilots and this is not a joke. Reported a frightened close call with a person flying in a jet pack. Our transportation correspondent, Joe Benitez, joins us now with the latest on the investigation. See you good morning. Hey Tom, good morning to you. Even the control tower at LAX was shocked to learn about this. Now we're hearing from the pilots themselves as they pass someone wearing a jet pack at 3,000 feet. Once the stuff of fiction and more recently we've seen jet packs in action flying around the statue of Liberty. But now airline pilots in California reporting a mystery in the Los Angeles skies. Multiple pilots approaching LAX Sunday night say they saw an unbelievable hazard in the sky. We just passed the guy in a jet pack. Going to hear that every day. Moments after the American Airlines pilot spotted the high flying intruder, a jet blue pilot crosses his path to. We just saw the guy's test spot. A person in a jet pack reported 300 yards out of the LA final at about 3,000 feet. Thankfully there were no collisions and everyone is okay. Only in LA. Only in LA. And we're told for now this is apparently being treated like a drone sighting because it's just so unprecedented. The LAPD was told about this, but they have not located this guy on a jet pack. Tom. All right, Joe, I think for your next story we may have to get Geo in the jet pack. Yes. That could add to that report. Hi, everyone. Tour stuff in Oplic here.

"How Chadwick Bosemans Black Pant..."
" Welcome back everyone. I'm joined now by a very familiar face to many of us. Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, but also a dear friend of Chadwick's from the Marvel universe. Robert Downey Jr. so good of you to be with us tonight. And you and Chadwick, you shared some iconic moments on screen together as fellow Avengers. So talk to me about one of your memories of Chadwick on set. Well, toward the end of the third Avengers, the Infinity War, there is this, we all kind of lose together. And I remember it was one of those few days that all of the Avengers were together. And it was just the way that he walked on set and the immense success that had occurred and rightfully so with Black Panther. And he was just in this kind of stratus of his own. And but always, always humble, always hard working, always a smile on his face. And just now looking back all the more I realized just what an incredibly graceful human being was. Yeah. And you shared, Robert, you shared such a heartwarming video on Instagram yesterday. The two of you, you're laughing, you called him a game changer. How are you going to remember your friend? And how do you want the rest of the world to remember him too? Well, even just it was about six, eight weeks ago, I reached out to him amidst the George Floyd protests. And he had such a thoughtful and kind of informative re-frame for me as I was on a bit of a listening tour. And then I just go back and think, you know, every time I think about, and Black Panther is hands down, it is the crowning achievement of the Marvel Universe. And I say that with all due respect to all the other films that have been made, including my own, but it was the one where people got to vote with their ticket sales and say, we require this overdue diversity. This is a meritocracy, or at least it should be. And this is a fantastic movie that has leveled the playing field and appropriately so. And so his legacy is so meaningful. And at the same time as I was noticing, you know, and it..." + 84%

"Chadwick Bosemans extraordinary,..."
" Good evening everyone. I'm Robin Roberts. You just saw that groundbreaking film, Black Panther, and the dynamic soulful performance of Chadwick Boseman, a superhero who took a whole new generation of kids and kids at heart like me and hopefully you too, into a brave new world. That's why it's so very painful to be here tonight, honoring a life and a light that should have gone on for decades to come, a life that has now been cut short at just 43 after a valiant four-year battle with colon cancer. When we heard about his passing, many of us could not put into words what that lost met. But there's one image that captured the feeling. It was a loss of a king, King Tachala. Chadwick died on the same day, Major League Baseball, recognized as Jackie Robinson Day. And on the same day of the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington. At this moment in our country's history as thousands from all backgrounds, protest, and a demand for social justice, Chadwick Boseman played an instrumental role in defining the current culture. He's already played some of the greats in Black history. Jackie Robinson, James Brown, Thurgood Marshall, and then made history as a first Black superhero in his own movie. So tonight, we honor that incredible life and legacy, a celebration fit for a king. Here's Deborah Roberts. I didn't have enough time with Chadwick. I mean, it's a statement that I know everyone is making. We got a good thing, babe. And everyone can make, because it was here far too short of time. Chadwick was a deeply kind and gentle person and very present and thoughtful. And those qualities are all so present in his work. We will never break. He's a historical figure as a Black Panther, but also such a good and decent human being. Chadwick, my friend, you will forever be remembered by your warm smile, your kind heart, and your fierce courageousness through great diversity. You just wanted to follow the guy into anything, you know? From the moment Chadwick stepped on screen, ..." + 87%

" Hurricane Katrina, completely ripping through the gold. I just got back from the Super Dome where people are once again lining up to take buses to get out of the city. But through the chaos, I got the chance to meet someone special. We're even sleeping. Oh, sad. I just believe that even when things that aren't good happen, that God can't use them for good. According to estimates, more than 1,800 people actually die directly or indirectly because of the hurricane. This was a major US city. I'll never forget it is right there in the ninth world where these bodies were still floating around. It changed the trajectory of my life. What's your name, sweetheart? Ericka. Ericka, what? Bad news. Ericka, it's been 15 years. Do you think about that day when I met you? I had never seen the news footage. I used to think about, hey, I was interviewed by this camera guy, but I don't know if anyone ever saw it. And it's kind of funny because I don't think I have much, like, I don't know, not many videos of me as a kid. Hold on, sweetie. 10 proper days of Tuesday. And it was absolutely horrific. I remember that you lost your home. Your homeless, it was hot inside there. The turf was wet. This is how we live in the neighborhood. Would you believe in people sleeping in this stuff like this? We live in pigs in here. Yeah, it was a crazy experience. We didn't get water and food or anything like that. I'm not drinking that water. Water's hot. And people still are iced and I gave it away. Because you told it really from your heart and you could tell us everything. That was the life that you suddenly was introduced to. I guess it feels like a compliment in the sense that I've always been passionate about writing hints off the books because I love reading.

His visit over the objections of the mayor and the governor, Trump supporters today coming face to face with Black Lives Matter demonstrators. And just blocks away from President Trump, Jacob Blake's family, gathering at the scene where he was shot. The president sharing his sympathy for the family, but they did not meet. President Trump defending law enforcement deflecting questions about racism in the U.S. Kenosha, a battleground county in a battleground state. So evenly split, President Trump took it by only 255 votes in 2016. ABC's Alex Perez is there tonight to lead us off. Despite local officials telling him to postpone his trip, a president trumping Kenosha, Wisconsin, today touring a building destroyed in protests after the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Met by supporters and protesters, he pushed his law and order message. We have to condemn the dangerous anti-police rhetoric. It's getting more and more. You have some bad apples. We all know that. And those will be taken care of through the system. And nobody's going to be easy on him either. And you have people to choke. Repeating his suggestion that the police officer who shot Blake seven times in the back, quote, choked after comparing him to a golfer missing a putt.

We recently got a look at preparations at New York's PS532 disinfection, space desks and open windows. Principal Kevin Bulls telling Tom they'd be ready. Obviously, I take the safety of everybody in my community really seriously. And in spite of my confidence in this plan, there is of course the reality that this is a scary and unknown virus. New York City schools now agreeing to randomly test students and staff each month. The federal government set to ship 150 million rapid tests to states to be used in the reopening of schools. The president again appearing to take issue with Dr. Anthony Fauci. I get along with him but everyone's in a way to come up with one that I say, where did that come from? I inherited him. He was here. He was a part of this huge piece of machine. I didn't put anybody in charge. He was here. The nation's top infectious disease doctor brushing it off saying he believes the president trusts his advice. I think that's kind of a distraction to pit me against the president.

" To an exclusive ABC News report, raising questions about how the Trump administration is dealing with possible Russian interference in the election. ABC News learning that a warning about Russian dirty tricks was pulled two days before it was set to go out to law enforcement. Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Carl has more on that. Good morning, John. Good morning, ABC News. ABC News has obtained a draft Department of Homeland Security bulletin that warns about Russian attempts to interfere in the upcoming election. It was a warning that was supposed to be issued nearly two months ago to law enforcement agencies, but never went out, raising serious questions about who stopped it and why. It was meant to be a warning, an intelligence bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security, alerting local, state, and federal law enforcement to a Russian scheme to damage Joe Biden's presidential campaign. The draft bulletin titled Russia likely to denigrate health of U.S. candidates to influence 2020 election, said intelligence analysts had determined with high confidence that Russia is trying to convince voters that Joe Biden isn't mentally fit to be president. As evidence, the bulletin cite stories by Russian-controlled news outlets from September 2019 until May of this year claiming, without evidence, that Joe Biden's quote, verbal miscuse are symptoms of dementia. We assess Russian-malign influence actors are likely to continue denigrating presidential candidates through allegations of poor, mental, or physical health to influence the outcome of the 2020 elections, the bulletin said. The bulletin also said Chinese and Iranian state-controlled media had also been raising questions about mental fitness, but about Trump's mental fitness, not Biden's. According to an email obtained by ABC News, the bulletin was shared with senior staff at the Department of Homeland Security on July 7, and scheduled to be released on July 9.

" Now to the high drama caught on camera here in New York. Risk rescuers pulling a woman to safety as she dangled from a 16th floor window during a fire. ABC's Megan Tavrision has that story. This is really a heroic rescue and it really shows the talent and the bravery of the members of New York City Fire Department. This morning, two New York City firefighters being hailed heroes after saving a woman dangling from the 16th floor of this high rise. It was crazy. I thought I was going to see someone die today. The rescue described as rare and risky, but ultimately successful. What was going through my mind, I just I didn't want to see anybody fall. That was always cared about. I just wanted to get her inside Tuesday afternoon. Firefighters arriving to this apartment in Harlem, seeing a woman hanging outside her window sill, frantically trying to avoid the heat and flames inside. Within an instant, firefighters deciding to execute a rarely used maneuver called a roof rope rescue. That's really done and yet they exercise their skills quickly. Oh my God, there's a woman on the ledge. Images showing one firefighter breaking the windows of the floor above. And then Laura, a firefighter to the woman to secure her. You can see her clenching to the window to still only a few inches wide. I was right behind her. So if she did decide to jump or let go, I was holding her to the glass. I had more arm inside the window and I was holding on to the wall there. And I had my other arm around her waist. Minutes later, Cruz hoisting the woman to safety. The rescue met with cheers from onlookers. It was awesome. That was hero, superhero, Spider-Man, superhero stuff that assaults today. The woman was treated for smoke inhalation, but is okay. Firefighters were able to gain control of the fire shortly after no word yet on the cause. Will Mona. Incredible. Thank you, Megan. Hi, everyone. Two more stuff in opposition here.

"'Unequivocal proof' Putin critic..."
" We have some breaking news now, Germany says it has unequivocal proof that Russian opposition leader in Putin critic, Alexei Navalny, was poisoned using a nerve agent. Navalny is currently in an induced coma while being treated in Berlin. His wife and colleagues had a ledge that he was poisoned while traveling from Moscow to Siberia last month. ABC's foreign correspondent Maggie Rulie joins me now from London with the latest on this. Maggie, what exactly is the German government saying here? Yeah, Diane, you mentioned those really powerful words in the German government saying they have unequivocal proof that Navalny was poisoned with a nerve agent from the Novichok group. Now this is a type of chemical weapon developed by Soviet scientists and known as being some of the deadliest ever made. Now remember, Navalny is not only a fierce critic of Putin, he's also the leader of the opposition party and was barred from running against Putin in the last election. So, then after today's news, people are definitely going to be looking to Russia for answers. And Maggie, do you remember saying that this was a similar nerve agent to one used in another recent case? Yeah, exactly. That case was just from a couple years ago here in England. It was Sir Guy's cripple and his daughter. They were both poisoned by a similar nerve agent. Now, Sir Guy was a double agent and the government here in London has accused the Russian government of being behind that attack. So, some similar themes of echoing in this attack as well as other one alleged from Navalny as well. And what's the Russian government saying about all this? Well, right now Diane, Russia has denied not only any involvement in Navalny's poisoning. They're denying that a poisoning even took place. They questioned if he was poisoned. But remember, Navalny has been transferred to that hospital in Berlin where they have confirmed that he was poisoned. He was poisoned with Novichok in there right now.

Instead of having a birthday party or having as many presents, I want to donate to a hospital. That's nine-year-old Hunter Michael Hutchins. I was wondering if he wanted to donate, even if it's a dollar or $10. He's on a mission to raise money for first responders at his local Indianapolis hospital. Even if it's more, just please donate if you can't, that's okay. Please donate. The fourth-grader using his scrap metal business for good. Recycle things like aluminum cans and old batteries and turn it into cash. A lot of things just get thrown away. He combined those earnings with his own birthday money to buy snacks for hospital staff at Franciscan Health, already donating more than $2,000. I think they're really happy because I got them. They gave me pictures. Those thank yous pouring in from hospital workers and encouraging others to donate their scrap metal to Hunter Michael. We're going to take a load in a minute. Today the little boys back at it again headed back to the scrap yard this time with unwanted satellite dishes, poles and chairs, hoping to raise another $2,000 by next week.

"CDC tells officials to prepare t..."
" And good evening. Thanks for being with us on this Wednesday night. I'm Tom Yamis in for David. We begin with the coronavirus pandemic and the new letter from the CDC to state health officials, urging state vaccine distribution facilities to be prepared for a vaccine by November 1st. Some taking issue with that date just two days before the election. The urgency very real COVID now taking more than 185,000 lives. And the concern about schools spreading the virus, tonight James Madison University in Virginia, the latest college to send students home. That's what Dr Anthony Fauci says is the worst thing they could do. This troubling image from a high school in Valucia County, Florida, students close together, some not wearing masks. Potential cases could take some time. Tonight we've learned of the first death linked to last month's motorcycle rally in Sturgia, South Dakota, as well as more than 260 cases in 11 states. And with the Labor Day holiday on the way, health officials issuing strong warnings to take care. ABC's Victor O'Kendal leads us off tonight from Florida. Tonight the CDC director, urging governors in all 50 states to get ready by November 1st to help with the release of a possible vaccine. Dr Robert Redfield saying in a letter obtained by ABC News, the government is rapidly making preparations to implement large scale distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in the fall of 2020. That letter dated on the same day the president promised a vaccine at the Republican Convention. We are delivering life-saving therapies and will produce a vaccine before the end of the year, maybe even sooner. Critics worry a vaccine might be rushed, but the White House says the timing has nothing to do with the election. Earlier Dr Anthony Fauci said he thinks that a safe vaccine will be identified by the end of the year. I believe that by the time we get to the end of this calendar year, that we will feel comfortable that we do have a safe and effective vaccine. The virus has k..." + 62%

"Trump threatens to restrict fund..."
" presidential campaign with the election 61 days away. President Trump now threatening to restrict federal funds from democratic-run cities like New York City, DC, Seattle, and Portland, claiming officials allowed lawless protests. Mary Bruce is in Washington tracking it all and Mary, there is so much reaction to this this morning. Tom leaders of these cities say this is a new low. They are calling this a blatant political ploy intended to go after the president's democratic rivals and distract, they say, from the devastating pandemic. The stunning move this morning is now expected to face stiff, legal opposition. It's an extraordinary political move that is certain to be challenged in court. Overnight, President Trump ordering officials to find ways to cut federal funding to democrat-controlled cities, claiming local leaders of allowed places like New York City, Washington, DC, Seattle, and Portland to descend into quote anarchy during protests for racial justice. Trump tweeting, my administration will do everything in its power to prevent weak mayors and lawless cities from taking federal dollars while they let anarchists, harm people, burn buildings, and ruin lives and businesses. We're putting them on notice today. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo outraged calling it a political stunt. He better have an army if he thinks he's going to walk down the street in New York. He can't have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City. The move would jeopardize billions of dollars in aid that could be used to help recover from the pandemic. Trailing in the polls, the president has been eager to change the subject, casting himself as the law and order candidate. I am your president of law and order. But his opponent, Joe Biden, says Trump is only making the unrest across the country worse. I wouldn't incite violence. I can't dem it when it occurred. In his first campaign trip to the key state of Wisconsin today, Biden will visit with the family of Jacob Blake, shot se..." + 53%

"The state of the race"
" And for more on the state of the presidential race, let's bring an ABC's political director, Rick Lyne. Rick, the president is threatening to cut funding to some major cities because of what he calls lawless protests. Can he do that? It's almost certainly going to be challenged in courts if he actually continues the machinations to do it. And start with the irony here that he would literally be defunding the police and potentially harming his efforts to get schools to open. Think about the ripple effect that any kind of cutting of federal resources would mean for state local police forces. So the president has put a lot of bluster behind some such threats in the past. They are rarely carried through. If he does attempt it, there's going to be a very fierce legal fight. It's unclear what pots of money he's talking about. And again, there's a real political risk here in being viewed that you're actually doing what you say your opponent wants to do. And Rick, we also heard in Mary's piece, the president suggesting that people in North Carolina vote by mail and in person. I just want to emphasize that's not legal, correct? Don't try this at home. Look, there's no loophole to test the system as the president is suggesting it is patent legal, attempting to vote more than once, knowing that you're doing it. That's illegal. Even if you do it by accident, that can be illegal. And if you coerce someone else into doing it as Mary reported, that's illegal. So the Attorney General can spin this, however he wants. What the president is suggesting here is that people actually would commit a crime. And I want to shift now to Kenosha, Wisconsin. Another city where we're seeing protests after the police shooting of Jacob Blake. You've said that Kenosha may be more important to this race than either of the conventions. Why? Well, this is developing into an almost perfect microcosm of the major issues of our day. The crises around racial reckoning, police protest, police violence, ..." + 61%

" Out of the race for 2020, Joe Biden and the battleground state of Wisconsin, meeting privately with the family of Jacob Blake, speaking on the phone with Jacob in his hospital bed, then at a community meeting, pledging support and denouncing violence, but saying President Trump is only making it worse. And now the president is threatening to withhold federal funding from Democratic-run cities. Here's ABC's Mary Bruce. Joe Biden today touching down in Kenosha, and meeting with the family of Jacob Blake, something President Trump did not do when he visited earlier this week. Biden speaking with Blake himself from his hospital bed, where he is now paralyzed after being shot seven times in the back by a white officer. He talked about how nothing was going to defeat him, how, whether he walked together or not, he was not going to give up. He then met with members of the community, still reeling. Vice President Joe Biden is here to listen. And love and help us heal. Porsche Bennett demanded police treat black Americans equally. We hear so many people saying, all we're going to give you this, we're going to give you that. But we have yet to see action. Local business owner Barb DeBurg describing how looters tried to burn down her store. We have never, ever seen anything as devastating. Biden denounced the violence, but said the president is only making matters worse. I thought you could defeat hate. He only hides. Only hides. And when someone in authority breathes oxygen under that rock, it legitimizes the dark size of human nature. This is Biden's second trip to a battleground state this week after spending most of the past five months at home in Delaware. A new poll shows him up eight points in Wisconsin. Biden knows what happened to Hillary Clinton four years ago. She never campaigned in Wisconsin and Wisconsin went for Donald Trump. All right, Mary Bruce joins us now from Washington and Mary.

"Vaccine Watch: Antibody trial se..."
" As the world waits on a vaccine for COVID-19, there's a new effort underway to try and create an alternative. This synthetic antibody trial is focusing on some of the most vulnerable populations, with a mobile lab traveling to nursing homes with COVID outbreaks to test out this experimental treatment. ABC's Bob Woodruff got an exclusive look at the trial in our latest vaccine watch. We're now heading towards Indiana. We got this call about an outbreak inside a nursing home. Because of this outbreak, to protect the privacy of the residents, we were asked not to show the exact location of this nursing home. They tell us where I'm locked down or where I close down. Despite the lock down, we were given an exclusive firsthand look at an experimental treatment designed to temporarily stop COVID-19 in its tracks, but it's not a vaccine. We have other trials that are getting underway right about now, and I will just mention one that I'm particularly going to watch closely. And that is the development and application of what's called monoclonal antibodies. Carrying those antibodies, this team was called in after two people inside tested positive for the virus. Unlike a typical research study where patients are asked to travel to a hospital or clinic, this time the team came to them. What's really exciting is that usually with trials like this, we have to bring the patients to us, and we have to have them come to facilities, come to labs, come to areas where they can get this medicine. But this is the first of its kind where care access research is actually going into the facilities where these people are. It's bringing the trial to them. About 30 to 40% of COVID-related deaths nationwide are directly linked to nursing homes. It usually starts with an infected healthcare worker who is unknowingly infected, coming to work in unintentionally exposing multiple patients. Part of a late-stage trial in the use of antibodies to prevent COVID-19, this mobile team, deployed by pha..." + 66%

"Wisconsin city where James Blake..."
" A city torn apart. In the center of a political storm, what gave them the right to a tempted murder on my child? Kenosha was concerned. The latest flashpoint in our nation's summer of racial tension after Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times by a police officer sparking protests and a deadly shooting. The Democratic nominee Joe Biden. So we got to give a chance to change the situation we can. And President Trump. The thing like this should never happen. Both visiting the city within days of each other. One emphasizing healing and racial justice. If I get elected president, I promise you, there will be a national commission on policing out of the White House. The other doubling down on his message of law and order. We should talk about the kind of violence that we've seen in Portland and here and other places. It's tremendous violence. Two trips to Kenosha offering a sharp contrast in style and strategy. Well on the ground today, Biden met with Blake's family for over an hour. When I came away with was the overwhelming sense of resilience and optimism. He also spoke to Jacob Blake on the phone from the hospital. He talked about how nothing was going to defeat him, how whether he walked again or not, he was not going to give up. Jacob Blake's sister, Latitra Wideman, was at that meeting with Biden. It definitely hurts my heart. What has happened to my brother in order for me to continue to speak out from our brother to get justice and many other African American people. I have to kind of just be strong and make sure that this is the thing does not keep happening to the next generation. The Jacob family and their attorney Benjamin Cromp want the officers who shot Jacob held accountable. Justice is an illusion that cost justice would be for her brother not to have been shot seven times in the back and be paralyzed. So all the family can pray for now is accountability. I'm tired of protesting. To be honest, I want to start the real work, the work that it's go..." + 76%

"1st mail-in ballots being sent t..."
" The first mail-in ballots for the presidential election are being sent out today. This comes as a new poll finds 55 percent of Americans say President Trump's rhetoric on the racial unrest in big cities is making matters worse. And now the president is raising concern after suggesting his supporters try to vote twice. Here's ABC's Inez de la Cotera. This morning, early voting in the presidential election is kicking off. The first mail-in ballots are being sent out today to voters in North Carolina. These mail-in ballots are a disgrace and they know it. It comes as President Trump tries to clarify his comments when he suggested Americans try to vote twice. In Pennsylvania last night, the president seemingly encouraged his supporters in some cases to vote by mail and then in person. Sign your mail-in ballot, okay? You sign it and send it in and then you have to follow it. And if on election day or early voting, that is not tabulated and counted, you go vote. Laws can vary by state, but voting twice could be a felony. Pennsylvania's Attorney General weighing in, writing, a election laws are clear. One person, one vote. On Wednesday, the president created a firestorm for a similar suggestion in North Carolina. Send it in early and then go and vote. And if it's not tabulated, you vote. And the vote is going to count. Election officials expect a record number of mail-in ballots this year because of the pandemic. Something the president has warned could lead to widespread voter fraud. And now, ABC News has learned Russian propaganda is also spreading that same unsubstantiated claim. A Homeland Security bulletin warns Russia is trying to undermine public trust in the electoral process by spreading disinformation. Mail-in voting creates vast opportunities for voter fraud. In the meantime, while in Pennsylvania, the president stepping up his attacks on Joe Biden. But did you ever see a man that likes to mask as much as him? And then he makes a speech and he always has it ..." + 41%

" Good morning, I'm Diane Misedo. Thanks for streaming with us. In today's update, a suspect accused of shooting and killing a right-wing protestor in Portland is dead after being killed during an attempted arrest by U.S. marshals. It happened hours after he appeared to take responsibility for shooting that protestor in an interview, saying it was self-defense. And new job numbers are out this morning. 1.4 million jobs were added to the U.S. economy in August, slightly above expectations, but a slowdown from the last few months. The unemployment rate fell to 8.4%. That's the first time it's under 10% since the pandemic started to put that into perspective. 10% was the high during the Great Recession. More people are expected to travel by car rather than fly this holiday weekend. The downside is you'll likely hit traffic. The good news is your gas will likely be cheap. Gas putty predicts the national average gas price will drop for $2 or rather $2.2 and $0.19 per gallon. What would be the lowest-labor day gas prices in 16 years? Experts say it's difficult to predict just how many people will actually be road tripping, but it's safe to say numbers will be in the millions. The National Safety Council warns that we could see more than 44,000 serious injuries on the roads so be extra careful this weekend. And it's rating marijuana? Well, that's what it looked like in Tel Aviv on Thursday as cannabis fell from a drone. Medical marijuana is legal in Israel, but local activists are pushing to legalize the drug for recreational use. They, those activists, were apparently behind the stunt. Police arrested the two men who allegedly operated the drone. And Hollywood is getting a screen test this holiday weekend. The production of the Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, is on hold after someone working on the movie Tested Positive for Coronavirus, but his other film, Tenant, is one of the first blockbusters to hit theaters since the pandemic started.

Tonight, the police union defending the seven suspended officers, they're in Rochester. ABC's Trevor Alt is there. The emotions boiling over on the streets of New York City. Police sources say a counter protesters car drove through a crowd of Black Lives Matter demonstrators who had gathered in Times Square to protest the death of Daniel Prude. There were no injuries and no arrests. On going protests in Rochester, police firing pepper balls and pepper spray to disperse the crowds. At least eight people arrested overnight and two officers injured. These people was out here peacefully protesting on my brother's behalf. And I appreciate their time. I appreciate their compassion. They don't give a damn about that. The outrage sparked by disturbing body camera footage released this week. Put your hands behind your back. Prude, seeing naked and in the midst of a mental health crisis, when officers say he turned combatant, spitting at them, the officers placing a hood over his head, pinning his neck to the ground. The medical examiner later ruling his death, a homicide. The mayor, suspending seven officers, saying she'd been misled by the police chief. Chief Singletary never informed me of the actions of his officers to forcibly restrain Mr. Prude. Chief Singletary has ordered internal investigations. And tonight the police union president, saying each of the officers followed protocol the night of the incident and are all cooperating with the investigation. The state attorney general's investigation into Prude's death is ongoing. And Tom, it appears in anticipation of more protests tonight.

"Derby horse owner: Kentucky Derb..."
" Well, protesters gathered today in Breonna Taylor's hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, for the 100th straight day. And tomorrow, thousands of people are expected to protest outside the city's legendary Churchill Downs race track, where the 146th annual Kentucky Derby will be held with no fans. Many folks actually want it canceled. There is one thoroughbred horse owner who's been under growing pressure now to pull out the Derby in protest of the killing of Taylor. He's Greg Harbitt, co-owner of the horse Necker Island, and he's here with us now to talk more about the situation that's taking place. And we should point out, Greg, you know, as an African-American owner, it's very special for you to have a horse in this Derby. But what people may not know is that there is history of African-Americans working in racing for more than 100 years. Your family included. Let's talk about that legacy. As you mentioned, African-Americans have made a great contribution to the door-bred racing industry. The first Kentucky Derby winner was actually trained by an African-American answer-winner as well as written by African-American Jocke named Oliver Lewis. My family has certainly made great contributions to the industry. I'm a third generation horseman. My great-grandfather was Will Harbitt who gained great notoriety with his association with Man of War. My grandfather Tom Harbitt was a very successful groomsman in his era and actually owned a Kentucky Derby participant in 1962 by the name of Touch Bar. And we should point out that in 1962, your grandfather, Tom, wasn't even allowed to sit in the stance. That's true. Due to the civil unrest and the social segregation, even though he was a breeder as well as the co-owner of the horse, he was not allowed to be listed or come to the grandstands in that year. That's what makes this so much special as far as my participation with everything that's going on in the country with the civil unrest to bring awareness of the contributions th..." + 68%

People work hard for their homes. So when you want somebody who's gonna send in the National Guard, the sending authorities to stop people from looting, burning down your buildings, wouldn't you want a president like that? Some of the president's supporters I met during our cross country tour. And joining me now to discuss that and much more Democratic Congresswoman Val Demings from the battleground state of Florida. Good morning, Congresswoman. As you saw, we talked to voters about a lot of topics, but law and order certainly resonated among many of them after the coast to coast violence. As a former law enforcement officer and someone who nearly joined the Democratic presidential ticket, is your party striking the right balance right now and responding to the unrest and calls for racial justice? Well, good morning. It's great to be with you. And let me say this, as a 27 year law enforcement officer, the foundation of every great community really is the opportunity to live in a safe community. And so all persons regardless of what part of the nation they're from, the color of their skin or their ethnic background want to live in safe communities. But we also need to understand what truly makes America the great wonderful country that it is. And that's an individual's right to protest. So our job is to make sure that peaceful protesters are able to exercise their right, guaranteed under the First Amendment. But we also have to make sure that those who break the law, those who exercise violence, regardless of what side of the political aisle that they're on, must be held accountable. And in this country, Martha, we can do both. A recent ABC News, Ipsas Polchios, 55% of voters think President Trump's rhetoric on the protest is making things worse.

The pilot ordering an emergency landing. Here's ABC's Elwin Lopez. Terrifying moments on board a military charter flight, shortly after taking off late Saturday from the Honolulu airport. Starting on emergency, 85-85 engine failure returning to the field. A passenger sharing this video showing the pitch-black cabin only lit by the flames outside. Oh my god, that's so scary. Those on the ground watching the scene in horror. Did you just see the fire coming out of it? The plane with 212 people on board was forced to turn back and make an emergency landing. If you have a fire-city emergency aircraft, you have to be your gamut to the right. The flight's operator, Atlas Air, reporting mechanical failure in one of the jet engines. Earlier this year, a similar incident, when an engine seemingly backfired on a united jet from Newark to LA. Made something strong. And back in November, passengers on this triple-7 flight thought they heard gunshots. But instead, flames spitting out from an engine. Atlas said in a statement that they will be conducting a thorough investigation into what caused the engine's mechanical issues. And thankfully, no one was injured. Lindsay?

Tonight the virus has taken more than 189,000 American lives. Crowds like this in Las Vegas this weekend could fuel the spread. So could social events among college students, this lake outing their Indiana University. And all of it as we head into the fall with the flu season on the way, here's ABC Stephanie Ramos. Tonight the Labor Day weekend, dealing this country a crucial test in its battle against the coronavirus. In Las Vegas, crowds spotted with little to no social distancing, many not wearing masks. The tourists that are coming into town that are not saying six feet away from each other, but it looks like their social distancing six inches away from each other. Record breaking heat out west sending thousands to seek relief on the beach in Santa Monica. crowds also flocking to downtown Nashville as restaurants and bars eased restrictions. I feel safe. If I was scared, I would just stay home. Just a week ago cases were increasing in 13 states. Today they are climbing in 30, but it'll be weeks before we know whether Labor Day weekend triggers a spike like the ones after Memorial Day and the 4th of July. I am very worried that if we don't take these precautions seriously, we're going to go into the fall with school and colleges opening with a lot more cases. And it's going to be much more difficult to navigate and get through. The country now averaging double the daily cases it had going into Memorial Day. After this party scene on a lake near Indiana University, the school warning students they could face sanctions. 33 fraternities and sororities are already in quarantine.

" Funny tonight here at the Children teaching us what it means to be America strong. So many children going back to school and that question, what did you do this summer? How did you cope this summer? And Cartier carry and his answer 11 years old Hampton, Virginia and he spent his summer at his lemonade stand raising money to buy diapers and wipes supplies for parents who have needed help during this pandemic.

You start now. You should be so proud of them. Cartier telling us today about that moment this summer, he won't forget. It was hard touching. I almost cried myself when she gave me a hug and started crying. After that, that maybe just want to keep doing it. Tonight Cartier backed his school, but still on that mission.

"By the Numbers: Trumps support a..."
" Just eight weeks from Election Day and the country is embroiled in a racial reckoning that some say President Trump helps inflame through his rhetoric and tweets. But still, recent polls suggest that Trump support among black, Hispanic, and college-educated white voters has remained remarkably steady since his 2016 victory. We take a closer look by the numbers. Recent polls suggest about 10% of black voters both nationally and in key swing state support President Trump. That matches Trump's support among black voters back in 2016, according to 538. And between a quarter and a third of Hispanics nationally are backing Trump, which is also similar to their support in 2016. And despite Trump's inflammatory campaign rhetoric about Mexicans in 2016, Trump won about 28% of the Latino vote, which was about the same that Mitt Romney won and other Republican presidential candidates before him. Hillary Clinton won among white college-educated voters by 17 percentage points in 2016. And now Biden leads in that group by 23 percentage points, according to Pew data. But Trump's support remained steady, above 40% with college-educated white voters in key background states like Florida and North Carolina, also in Georgia and Texas." + 1%

" This morning, the firefight on the West Coast growing more difficult by the hour. In Oregon, a state of emergency declared as 36 wildfires burn across the state, a live stream from the city of Medford overnight, showing flames burning multiple structures. The one side of Diamond off King has been evacuated. It's been pretty quick. Evacuations in the area made more difficult after the fire closed interstate five at the California border. Firefighters now dealing with the strongest winds of the season in California from so called Diablo winds in the north to Santa Ana winds in the south. We've got fires burning from in the north part of the state all the way to the Mexican border about 800 miles between the furthest distant fires. Strong winds combining with record heat and dry conditions fueling at least 25 large wildfires in California alone, burning more than 2 million acres. The first storm is a term we seemingly often use here in the state of California, but these numbers bear fruit to that assertion that this is historic. This smoke NATO spotted east of San Diego spinning off a wildfire as it scorches 17,000 acres. This video from a smoky Bay area where residents are facing a 23rd consecutive day of spare the air alerts, meaning wood burning areas are prohibited. Farther south of fire fighter is in critical condition this morning after he and his crew were overrun by flames near Big Sur. Officials saying the firefighters were defending a fire station when they were forced inside their emergency shelters. A dual layer blanket met to deflect heat as seen in this video. One of the largest fires burning in the state near Fresno. Now scorching more than 160,000 acres. ABC's Kayleigh Hartung is there. These trees are acting as dry fuel. And as you feel this wind kick off, you understand why authorities say the creek fire is uncontrollable and so the weather improves.

" A major development and the race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. One of the leading vaccine trials is now on hold because of an unexplained illness raising safety concerns. Meanwhile, with coronavirus outbreaks in other parts of the country, New York City is taking new action to make sure visitors quarantine. The city will now be stopping out of state buses to require travelers to fill out registration forms. ABC's Faith of Boube joins us with the latest on this pandemic, beginning with that vaccine news. Faith, good morning. Hey, good morning, Kenneth. There's a lot of pressure right now in these companies to produce a vaccine, but a temporary hold in a large medical study like this one is not unusual. Late stage human trials for a promising COVID-19 vaccine at the University of Oxford and now temporarily on hold. AstraZeneca, the drug company behind it, saying it's a routine action for safety reasons after one of their volunteers suffered a potentially unexplained illness. The drug maker still hoping to minimize any potential impact on the trial timeline, while CEOs of nine major drug companies in the race for a vaccine promised to not rush production, but to rather let science win. At least 30 states are now seeing a surge in COVID-19 cases, as deaths in the U.S. hover around 190,000. We've seen this dramatic spike. The mayor of Athens, Georgia, among many fearing, a return to campus is contributing to the rise in cases. We're in much worse shape entering the fall than we were entering the summer. We're going to probably see a lot more cases ahead. Colleges like the University of Rhode Island cracking down on large gatherings like this. At NYU, students will now be required to do a weekly self-test. I guess it makes us feel a little safer, not there being pretty strict. Meanwhile on the campaign trail, the president's still dangling a vaccine ahead of Election Day. Now that we have it, it's only a question of weeks or a full-time job.

"New shark sightings off Cape Cod..."
" Now with that great white shark warning, as many shore community are extending the beach season this year, we'll rejoin this now along the Jersey shore with more as shark activity enters its peak time. Good morning, Will. Good morning, Michael. As we take a drone's eye view over Seabright, New Jersey, this beach along with many others will be staying open through the end of September. That should give a boost to local businesses, but shark dangers will extend along with beach season. This morning, summer may be over, but the sharks are still out. Over Labor Day weekend, this great white spotted less than 10 feet from the shoreline in Cape Cod. Its massive dorsal fin gliding above the waterline. Tims and Mackenzie captured these images of the shark. Come back. Mackenzie says she's been coming to this beach for more than 25 years and noticed the seals avoiding the water. And then she saw why. About two hours later, we saw the fin. It was only about 10 feet away from us. She estimates it was 12 to 14 feet long and three to four feet wide. Brad Coulis also spotted the shark. It was absolutely stealthy. It was silent. You couldn't hear it. And only when the fin came up, did you see it? July to October is peak time for shark activity in the Northeast. An increase in human activity in the water during the summer results in an increase in opportunities for sharks and humans to get together. Usually beaches tend to see less traffic dislated the season, but with COVID-19 delaying the start of the season and more people working from home, this year might be different. Some beaches extending their seasons like those along the Jersey Shore and parts of New York. Multiple shark sightings were reported on Long Island earlier this summer. Lifeguards have been on high alert following shark attacks like one off the coast of Maine. 63-year-old Julie Demperio Hollowock was killed during the incident. She was wearing a wetsuit and experts say the shark may have mistaken her for a se..." + 42%

"and president trump is issuing an executive order allowing businesses to put off paying social security taxes until the end of april the president says the move will boost the economy by putting more money in the pockets of american workers critics say the order doesn't help the millions of people who are out of work and those whose employers will still withhold the usual amount abc's alex beshea joins me now for more on this alex good morning how does this payroll tax deferral work exactly diane so good morning to you under irs guidance it allows employers to stop withholding social security tax from their employees paychecks through the end of the year and so essentially that's a little bit over six percent but as the name suggests this is an import a payroll tax deferral not a forgiveness so eventually you have to pay that money back and so we're finding that you owe or you have larger paychecks now just to have smaller paychecks come the start of 2021 and what we're finding from a lot of small business owners is that they don't want to put their employees in the position to owe when they're already struggling through coronavirus the other thing that i'd note is let's say you have an employee that leaves before the end of the year come tax time you as the business owner could be on the hook for paying those taxes back employers are saying the guidance on this is vague how does it work with state law or collective bargaining and so we're finding a lot of private sector businesses are not taking advantage of it and i know you've spoken with some workers and business owners about this what are they saying well i want to introduce you to one guy his name is robert jaimo he's the owner of silver diner developments he's got well over a thousand employees nearly two dozen restaurants and he's saying look this seems really risky for both his employees and and his business and that he doesn't feel like the you know the benefit is worth the risk i think it's playing wit..." + 48%

" You addressed the concerns from the Woodward book in regards to whether did you mislead the public by saying that you downplayed the coronavirus and that you repeatedly did that in order to reduce panic? Did you mislead the public? Well, I think if you said in order to reduce panic, perhaps that so. In fact, it's a cheerleader for this country. I love our country. And I don't want people to be frightened. I don't want to create panic, as you say. And certainly, I'm not going to drive this country or the world into a frenzy. We want to show confidence. We want to show strength. We want to show strength as a nation. And that's what I've done. And we've done very well. We've done well from any standard. You look at our numbers compared to other countries, other parts of the world. It's been an amazing job that we've done. I think it's very sad in many respects because the incredible individuals working so hard on it, including our Vice President, they've done this great job. They haven't been acknowledged by the news media. And they should, for the job we've done, whether it's ventilators and now you'll see very soon with vaccines and with therapeutics. The job we've done has been incredible. But we don't want to, we don't want to instill panic. We don't want to jump up and down and start shouting that we have a problem that is a tremendous problem scare everybody. And I'll tell you the other thing, we immediately started buying all over the world. We started buying masks and gowns and everything else. And we don't want to cause pricing to go up to a level that becomes almost unaffordable. So yeah, and that said, so in that sense, I agree with it. Yeah, please. How do you reassure the American public going forward that they can trust what you're saying? Well, I think that's really a big part of trust. We have to have leadership. We have to show leadership. And the last thing you want to do is create a panic in the country. This was a horrible thing. It was sent to ..." + 73%

"Whistleblower says Trump adminis..."
" We're going to turn tonight to the whistleblower at the Department of Homeland Security. Coming forward, claiming the Trump administration repeatedly tried to censor or manipulate intelligence for political purposes. The allegation comes after ABC News reported the agency withheld a report for two months about Russia and what it's doing with just two months until Election Day. Here's Mary Bruce. Tonight a former top Homeland Security official turned whistleblower is coming forward to say he was ordered to stop producing intelligence reports on Russian interference in the 2020 election, in part because it made the president look bad. In a formal whistleblower complaint, the official Brian Murphy says the acting secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf delivered the order, telling him it specifically originated from the White House. Murphy says he was instructed to instead start reporting on activities from China and Iran, which he believed posed a lesser threat, but it's something the president has been pushing. You started off with Russia. Why don't you start off with China? Do you think China is maybe a bigger threat? I mean, I think maybe it is. I mean, you'll have to figure it out. According to US intelligence, while China would prefer to see Trump lose, Russia is actively trying to help him win by spreading misinformation and denigrating Joe Biden. Murphy says he was instructed to withhold an intelligence bulletin on Russia's efforts and says he told his supervisors that it was improper to hold a vetted intelligence product for reasons for political embarrassment. Now Murphy also says that he was told to downplay the threat posed by violent white supremacists and to include in his reports information on violent left-wing groups so that they matched more with the president's public comments. The White House is responding tonight. They call Murphy's complaint. They say it's based on false allegations and damages our national security. David. I'm Matt from Toni..." + 23%

When you're driving down the street, you know, and those blue and red cherries come on behind you, you all of a sudden get a tingle, your heart starts to race, even when you know you've done nothing. I won't let you up, get out! Now! Wow! Get out of the car! Before I fail you to say no. Adrenaline pumping, pulse quickening. A routine traffic stop makes most of us anxious. But for too many black Americans, such routine and colors with police can also mean the difference between life and death. Walter Scott, Samuel DeBose, Philando Castile. For a number of those whose loved ones have been killed, the fear and anger police is wrong. And for some those swarantra protect, or instead viewed as oppressors. They are here to assassinate us. They are here to kill us because we are black. My nephew, Philando, was murdered by a St. Anthony Police Officer in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Seeing my sister's son, my nephew, shot and killed in a car by another police officer. You know, it was devastating. Philando Castile's life was cut short on July 6, 2016. He was 32 years old. On that fateful night, Officer Heranimo Yinez makes the call to pull over Castile. I'm going to stop the car. I'm going to check 90s. I have reason to pull it over. The two occupants just look like people that were involved in our robbery. The driver looks more like one of our suspects because of the white set-knows.

" And joining me now is a spokesman for the American Red Cross just in current, just in good morning. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me, Diane. So with so many fires burning at the same time in several states, and throughout almost the whole West Coast, really, how is the Red Cross helping right now? Yeah, it's really been another explosive night of wildfires all across the West Coast into the Rocky Mountains and a continuation of what we've seen through the summer. But our teams are on the ground there with evacuation centers, with shelters for emergency lodging. And some of those basic needs that your reporter was mentioning, food, water, mental health resources. And as we really start to see the full scope of this deadly wildfire. So how hard is it to face something like this while still dealing with COVID-19 and during hurricane season in some areas? Yeah, it's really been a disaster on top of a disaster, right? So what we've been able to do through the spring is train our volunteers, our disaster teams have been trained and we've been working with great local officials and county health officials. Obviously, some of those rules are different in different places to make sure that we're doing the best we can with health and safety in terms of social distancing, wearing masks, doing health and screening checks for everyone. Because we want to make sure that everyone feels healthy and safe while they're dealing with what looks to be the worst time of their entire life. So really, it's a matter of adding that training, adding those extra steps, but still bringing that same compassion and those resources that the Red Cross knows we can bring to people in need, especially when the need is so great. And in terms of preparation, this is one of the most intense wildfire seasons on record already and it's not near over yet. So how is the Red Cross adjusting to that? Yeah, absolutely. We've trained up a number of additional volunteers that we've made the calls ..." + 47%

" Finally tonight here, America's strong, the teenager who survived a shark attack, her father helping to save her. And Robin Roberts has been tracking their journey for months. Summer 2019 was looking very promising. I was excited, I was happy. Then you know, sometimes things happen. It like rained really hard the night before. So like that made the water kind of brackish. Then like step on something. And I'm like, okay, that's dad, like whatever. That's fine. It was really funny. And then I was like, oh, that kind of hurts. And then I get pulled underwater. It happened really fast, but a lot of thoughts were going through my head. Am I going to drown or am I going to bleed out? I really don't want to die. So like I start like praying. I ran, I just started running. And I dove under and I grabbed Paige with my left arm and I brought her up. And when I brought her up, there was resistance. And then my dad, like he gets me. I knew I had Paige and it was pulling me. And I had to anchor my feet down into the sand to stop me from moving out. And I just started to hit it. And I hit it, man. I hit it so hard so many times. I just started to hit it. You know what's so incredible, Charlie, is that you were there on the beach. You weren't the firefighters. You wanted to be there as her father in that moment. I took that moment in because I needed to take that moment. I was looking at it and I could feel the raw power of what that shark was trying to do. You know, that shark wasn't there to be my friend. That is trying to kill my daughter. And tonight right here at 10 PM Eastern, Robin Roberts and an extraordinary special. The moment Paige takes her first steps where she's headed now. 10 PM Eastern.

" We continue to follow the emergency unfolding across several states tonight. The stories emerging are just awful. The father, racing through flames to get to members of his own family, his 12-year-old son and a boy's grandmother were later discovered. They did not survive. And tonight, the harrowing new images coming in. Look at this. This is a home near Oregon City, Oregon. And keep in mind, this image was captured in the middle of the day. Thousands have been forced from their homes, their entire neighborhoods destroyed tonight. In California, they are setting records more than three million acres now burned. And from Washington State, the story of a toddler who did not survive, and the governor of Oregon late today with a warning saying, quote, this will not be a one-time event. Unfortunately, we are feeling the acute impacts of climate change. Here's our Chief National Correspondent, Matt Kupin, on the fire lines again tonight. Oh my God. Tonight, survivors of that explosion of wildfires in the West, offering a glimpse inside. Half a talent is going to be gone. At least half of the city. Just 24 hours after the governor warned of the state's greatest loss of life, the death toll is growing tonight. Southeast of Salem, Oregon, Chris Tofty, frantically trying to reach his family during the evacuation. So I drove through with some pretty big flames, like through as in the flames, like engulfed in my car. I can't believe the tires didn't pop or something, you know? After that interview, the family says, searchers found the bodies of his 12-year-old son, Wyatt, and Wyatt's grandmother, Peggy. The fires in the Medford area destroyed about 600 homes. This lone house, a reminder of a neighborhood, obliterated. From up here, you don't only get a sense of the scale of the destruction, but also an entire landscape bleached of color.

" We're going to turn out of the coronavirus emergency. We are making marking a somber date today. It is exactly six months to the day since the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic. The death toll currently topping 191,000 with 23 states now seeing an increase in cases. Some of those fueled by students returning to campus. Here's Victor O'Kendah with more. This morning, the grim outlook from the nation's top infectious disease doctor. This fight is far from over. I just think we need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter. Dr. Anthony Fauci warning Americans not to underestimate the virus. Don't ever, ever underestimate the potential of the pandemic. And don't try and look at the rosy side of things. A once unfathomable toll, the CDC now projecting 217,000 deaths by the beginning of October. And with flu season around the corner, health experts issuing this dire warning. So, big concern this year, of course, is that we are going to see what could be a perfect storm of accelerated COVID-19 activity as people gather more inside. And as they are exposed to seasonal influenza. Teachers accounting for an increasing number of those lives lost. A Lafayette County Mississippi teacher died while isolating with COVID-19 symptoms. 42-year-old Nacoma James wasn't inside a classroom, but was working with students from the football team all summer. College campuses continue struggling to contain the spread. At Miami University of Ohio, cases climbing by a thousand in just two weeks. Officers there breaking up a house party. Where there's an input on the computer that you tested positive for COVID? Yeah, one was this. This was the week ago. Are you supposed to be quarantining? Yeah, that's why I'm at my house.

" On the September 11th, we continue to honor the newly 3000 people who lost their lives 19 years ago on this day. Memorials are happening all over the country today, and I want to go back to our Adrian banker who's in Lower Manhattan forest this morning. Adrian, we know that this year will look a bit different than others because of the pandemic, but people are still honoring all of those lives lost. They're still remembering what happened 19 years ago. What's the scene like down there right now? Well, it's interesting, Dan, because you'd think in a year where coronavirus sidelines so many things, it would almost be inevitable that memorials would even be affected. However, a lot of people, including the family members of those victims, are saying that even COVID-19 should not sideline the remembrance that never forget sentiment here in New York and around the world. Now, we know that there are two events going on. There's the official event at the 9-11 Memorial and Museum, and then there's another event adjacent to that. The reason why tunnel to towers, an organization dedicated to a firefighter who was fallen during that deadly day, has actually decided to read the names of the victims out loud. The official memorial decided because of coronavirus concerns, they would not read those names out loud. But we do know this that the museum's director says that this was the right time to honor those victims and reopen the museum today. Take a listen. We can get beyond tragedy. That's the message here. And I think opening now at this moment, it's even more meaningful for this city and for this nation. We're back and this nation, this city, will be back. We will get beyond this.

" We turn to the coronavirus here in the U.S. And the new evidence from the CDC and what it reveals about young children in school and in daycare across this country and how the virus can be spread and brought home with them. The virus has now taken more than 192,000 American lives and that new CDC report tonight just as schools reopen. At a reality check here this evening on just how effective any vaccine might be. What Dr. Anthony Fauci is now saying about a vaccine and when this nation could truly get back to normal. Here's ABC's Marcus Moore tonight. As schools and daycares reopen their doors, new evidence young children can transmit COVID-19. A CDC study identifying 12 children thought to have been infected at child care centers who went on to infect 12 others, including parents and siblings. Six months after the coronavirus was declared a pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci warning of the long road ahead. If you're talking about getting back to a degree of normality which resembles where we were prior to COVID, it's going to be well into 2021, maybe even towards the end of 2021. Dr. Fauci says it could take that long before the majority of the population can get protected by any new vaccine. Adding he'd be surprised if we had a vaccine like the one from measles, which is 97 to 98% effective. I would accept a 70 to 75% effective vaccine, which means you still have to have a component of public health measures. Dr. Joseph Varone has been working around the clock on the front lines at Houston Methodist. He worries about COVID mixing with flu season. My concern is that within the weeks, few weeks we're going to have another wave. And unfortunately, that's going to be a COVID that's going to come in with a vengeance. And with winter coming, the risk of indoor spread is greater. Cities like New York and Miami, now moving towards indoor dining. If you go indoors in a restaurant, whatever capacity 25, 50% or what have you indoors, absolutely increases the risk. As outbreaks..." + 44%

"'Americans want to get their liv..."
" Just over seven weeks to election day and the voting has already begun in the Battleground State of North Carolina. Georgia and Minnesota start this week in an election that will break new records for early voting and vote by mail. And with the days ticking by, President Trump's still fighting it from behind, dealing with the fallout from those explosive bob would work tapes. Our brand new poll with Ipsos indicates it's taking a toll on the president. 65% of Americans now disapprove of how the president has handled the pandemic. 67% think he acted too slowly. Less than one out of three, trust what Trump says about the pandemic, compared to 51% who trust Joe Biden. Let's take that straight to the Trump campaign. Senior advisor Jason Miller joins us morning, Jason. Welcome back to this week. Those are some pretty harsh judgments about how the president is handling this crisis. How do you turn it around? Well, George, good morning. And thank you for having me. What you didn't mention is that Americans very much trust President Trump to help us recover with the economy. And Americans also believe that President Trump is the one whose best position to lead us to a vaccine. Something that President Trump, I believe will deliver this calendar here in a return to normal in 2021. But George, one other thing I got to point out that we didn't hear from in the intro, there is a reason why Bernie Sanders and other Democrats are so concerned about Joe Biden, the lack of enthusiasm with his candidacy. Last night, I was with President Trump in Northern Nevada. And what we saw were thousands of enthusiastic people and listen to this, George, over 20% of the people who are at that event didn't even vote in 2016. That's why our internal numbers show us actually winning Nevada. Feel very well positioned. It's another blue state we're gonna flip this year. I'm gonna ask some own Sanders about that. But what do you make of the criticism that so many people are sharing up at those ral..." + 82%

" When you have a heat dome over the entire West Coast, the United States, when you have temperatures, record-breaking temperatures, record droughts, then you've got something else at play. California folks is America fast-forward. What we're experiencing right here is coming to community, all across the United States, America, unless we get our act together on climate change. Start warning there from California Governor Gavin Newsome after the worst week of law and fires ever, up and down the Pacific coast, apocalyptic scenes, at least 27 dead, dozens more missing, thousands forced to flee their homes, Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco, now among the worst cities for air quality anywhere in the world. President Trump is heading to California tomorrow, and we're joined now by Washington Governor and Jay Inslee, Oregon Senator Jeff Murley. Thank you both for joining us this morning and Senator Murley, let me begin with you. I know you spent the day traveling your state yesterday. What have you learned? Where do things stand right now? Yeah, George, it is apocalyptic. I drove 600 miles up and down the state. I never escaped the smoke. We have thousands of people who have lost their homes. I could never have envisioned this. The East winds came over the top of the mountain, proceeded to turn the fires into blow torches that went down and just incinerated a series of small towns like Blue River and Phoenix and talent. Just you have commuere after community with fairgrounds full of people, refugees from the fires. And Governor Inslee, how's the situation in Washington State this morning? A same situation. The skies are a smoke that we've never seen before, except two or three years ago. It's apocalyptic. And it is maddening, George. And I'll tell you why. I was in Maldon the other day, a town that was absolutely decimated, 80% of the homes were burned down in South Eastern Washington, talking to a woman who moved there to try to have a peaceful existence in a small ..." + 76%

"'We have work to do' attracting ..."
" Now from the Biden campaign, Senator Vigia Simone Sanders joins us now. You just heard Jason Miller's Simone thank you for joining us. Says Vice President Biden wants to stay in the basement and have everybody else stay there too. Thank you for having me this morning, George. Look what Jason Miller and the Trump campaign are starting. Just isn't true, George. Vice President Biden was out campaigning this week, as you know, he, you folks saw him not campaigning, but referencing and really taking a solemn moment marking the 9-11 last, this past Friday. And Vice President Biden will be out next week. He's going to Florida, we'll be in Minnesota. We'll have some things that we'll be announcing. So the reality is, Vice President Biden is actively campaigning as is Senator Harris. But the difference is, George, we're doing so safely. We are letting the science lead us. We are listening to the experts. You know, safety is of the utmost importance to our campaign, the safety of the voters, the safety of our campaign staff. And that is why Vice President Biden is modeling good behavior. He's wearing a mask. We are social distancing, as you'll see at our events and press conferences. That stands in stark opposition to what President Trump is doing, having huge rallies with large groups of people who are packed in together. It's not safe and it's not modeling good behavior. Vice President Biden has the President response to the coronavirus as a betrayal that it's cost American lives. But what evidence do you have that Vice President Biden was calling for a significantly different response early on? Can you point to public statements in January and February where the Vice President called for travel bands, social distancing, wearing masks? Well, I can do you one better, George, in October 2019. Vice President Biden warned that we were susceptible and vulnerable to a pandemic. In January of that of 2020, he wrote an iPad that warned and caution that Donald Trump should take ..." + 76%

" And as the Gulf Coast braces for Hurricane, the West continues to suffer through a deadly wildfire catastrophe. Take a look at this drone footage from Phoenix, Oregon. Entire neighborhoods incinerated. Nearly 5 million acres have burned in California, Oregon, and Washington State. All that smoke choking residents. A thick haze of smoke you see at their swallowing major cities like Seattle. The air quality now, the worst in the world, and of course the human toll, at least 25 of her dead and dozens remain unaccounted for. ABC's will cars on the fire line in California. Tonight the death toll is rising as record-breaking wildfires rage and hazardous smoke smothers to biggest cities in the West. At least 25 people have been killed across three states in the past week and dozens are still missing. Mary Joyner is fighting back tears as she tells us how her beloved 92-year-old aunt Violet begged to be rescued from the home they shared in Phoenix, Oregon. She kept calling me on my cell phone at where yelling at me to come get her. And I kept trying to tell her I can't come get you by. They won't let me in. I just get the hell out of there. But the fire spread too fast, destroying hundreds of homes, including Mary's. Her grief unbearable as she heard her aunt's last voice mails. I set my send-take all those messages off to her to my close my eyes at night. That's all I hear of seeing. Officials in Oregon are warning of a mass fatality incident. The flames have incinerated at least six towns. We are hearing reports that as a wind start to move back on shore, we may have gusting starting this afternoon. We're very worried about that. Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles are all reporting some of the worst air quality in the world. Check out the view out the window that thick smoke. It looks like a fog with the beaches in Los Angeles County. At least 100 fires are burning and at least 10 states tonight. Bob got fire near Los Angeles today for new evacuations.

"TikTok chooses Oracle over Micro..."
" Now to the sale that could save TikTok here in the United States, the wildly popular video sharing app with a potentially new partner after being threatened by President Trump. Jenae Norman joins us now with more on all that. Good morning, Jenae. Hey, Robin. Good morning. The original deadline for that ban was set for tomorrow. The president says TikTok is a national security risk. The company denies that, but now has reportedly rejected Microsoft's offer instead opting for Oracle. After weeks of talks, Microsoft announcing their bid to buy TikTok, the popular video sharing app has been rejected. Microsoft issuing a statement, we would have made significant changes to ensure the service met the highest standards for security, privacy, online safety, and combating disinformation. The short-form video app has been downloaded more than 750 million times in New York Times reports, garnering the attention of millions with coordinated dance-offs and viral challenges. Multiple reports citing sources familiar with the deal say TikTok's owner has chosen tech giant Oracle as its technology partner. A mid-national security concern for being a Chinese-owned company, President Trump signed an executive order early August threatening the tech company behind TikTok to sell its U.S. operations, giving the popular app just 45 days to strike a deal with another tech company or face being banned. As the deadline approaches next week, President Trump saying there won't be an extension. It's unclear why Microsoft's offer was rejected, neither Oracle nor TikTok have commented, but it's worth noting Oracle stands out in Silicon Valley because of the tech company's reported ties to the Trump administration. Robyn, some may argue the biggest headline is that we'll get to see more of those TikTok dances and challenges. Oh boy, what we're going to do if we couldn't see those today. Thank you. Hi, everyone.

President Trump heading to the state today for a briefing on the fires, and Will Car has the very latest. This morning new evacuations are underway as historic fires and thick smoke continue to plague the west coast. At least 25 people have been killed, and dozens are still missing. In Oregon, Mary Joyner is fighting back tears, telling us that her beloved 92-year-old ant violet may not have made it out. She kept calling me on my cell phone, at work yelling at me to come get her, and I kept trying to tell her I can't come get you, they won't let me in. I said just get the hell out of there. And with the flames comes that toxic smoke that's blanketed the west coast, smothering several major cities, blocking out the sun, imposing serious health risks for millions of people. And San Francisco residents are urged to stay inside. The air quality in Portland, the worst in the world. The debate is over, around climate change.

ABC News got an inside look at Capitol 1 arena in DC as officials prepare for voting booths just steps from center court in center ice. Are they going to check in right here under the Bud Light sign? In front of the sticks. In front of the Capitol sticks and then they these are going to be voting booths all the way down this concourse. You got yes. While the typical precinct has often just a handful of voting machines this super center will have dozens able to process thousands of voters in a day with plenty of social distance. Once they voted they will come further down the corridor and put their put their ballot in a tabulated machine get their outvoted sticker and they can exit. So this is a one directional flow to keep people one directional flow to keep people I mean that that that alone will end up driving efficiency. The efficiency a big sell for poll workers who've been harder to recruit this year because of health concerns the convenience potentially enticing to reluctant voters who might otherwise stay home. Our players are incredibly motivated to encourage people to use their voice and vote and they have been pushing both us as a company and our employees to get in there. Players across the NBA and other pro sports pushing to make polling places more accessible. Our voices being heard our vote is being counted and you know in this it's a huge push for us as a nation to take that right. NBA superstar LeBron James leading the effort in part as a response to national protests for racial justice after the death of George Floyd.

" Good evening and it's great to start another week with all of you at home. And as we come on the air tonight, two parts of this country are now dealing with weather emergencies. There is an urgent search right now for the missing in those wildfires. I mean, uncomfortable exchange with the president today over climate change. Hurricane Sally upgraded to a category two hurricane late today set to slam into the Gulf Coast. This would be the third hurricane just this season alone to strike the Gulf Coast. It's a massive storm winds already reaching 100 miles an hour growing stronger over the warm waters of the Gulf. Expected to move slowly once it hits, which is never good. The outer reaches of the storm already dumping torrential rain on South Florida flooding streets there. Washing over the sea wall in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi and kicking up the waves and surf on Dauphin Island, Alabama. Magdatory evacuations and effect tonight. Let's get right to the latest timing and the track of this chief meteorologist, Ginger Z live in the Gulf tonight. She's in Alabama. You can see the water kicking up there. Ginger, what does the latest track show? David, we are 24 hours from this making landfall and you see that bridge behind me. We were thinking we could be live from Dauphin Island, the barrier island there. We had to leave because the causeway was already taking on water. That's how broad an impact field this will be for the next 48 hours. So let me take you to the maps because not only is the Gulf of Mexico turning here, that storm is more than 100 miles from my south east, but it is moving west, northwest and it's slow. That slow movement is going to be key with this track as it makes landfall late tomorrow night into early Wednesday morning somewhere in eastern Mississippi along that Alabama state line. It's not the line of where the eye passes. It's that broad area that's going to be impacted from Pensacola, Florida back to say slide L. New Orleans still finds them..." + 67%

We'll be asking the questions. I'll be moderating and our senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega is already on the scene in Philadelphia. Good morning Cecilia. Hey George, we're ready for you here. Good morning to you. You know that it is all happening right here in just a matter of hours. The president comes face to face in this crucial battleground with some of the very voters who could decide the selection. If you were then 50 days to go, it is a race where both candidates say everything is on the line. This is the most important election in the history of our country. This is a life changing election. This will determine what America is going to look like for a long, long time. About one in four voters still haven't entirely made up their minds and tonight for 90 minutes inside Philadelphia's National Constitution Center, some of those uncommitted voters will take their questions directly to the president. No question off limits. Some in attendance voted for President Trump in the last election. Others voting for the very first time. Here inside this theater, before people can even come in, they'll have to be tested for COVID. And let me show you this over here. This is where the audience is going to be sitting. You can see everyone is socially distanced. Everyone will be wearing masks as per state requirements. It will be far from the president's recent rallies where supporters have defined social distancing requirements. Many, not wearing masks. Here in the Keystone State, President Trump looking to chip away at Joe Biden's lead, but most voters say top of mind it's the economy and the pandemic.

"Breonna Taylor's wrongful death ..."
" On March 13th, 186 days ago, a tragedy beset our community with the death of 26-year-old Brianna Taylor. Her death has ignited a movement in Louisville and the nation for racial justice, sending thousands into our streets and cities all across the country and the world, all crying out for justice for Brianna. And while her death was a tragedy for so many, let's remember that Brianna was first a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a niece, a girlfriend, a friend, and a coworker. And for those who knew her, Brianna's death is personal. The pain is visceral, and the loss ever more devastating. Tamika Palmer, Brianna's mom, says Brianna was a quick student, a hard worker, and an old soul. She was the glue of the family. Brianna was loved. I cannot begin to imagine Ms. Palmer's pain, and I'm deeply, deeply sorry for Brianna's death. While we await a decision from Attorney General Daniel Cameron on whether or not charges will be filed in this case, my administration is not waiting to move ahead with needed reforms to prevent the tragedy like this from ever happening again. That's why I'm here today with the family of Brianna Taylor to announce that Louisville Metro Government has settled the civil lawsuit with her estate. As part of this settlement, Louisville Metro Government agrees to make several important policy changes. First, to build stronger community connections between our police officers and the people they serve, we will one establish a housing credit program to incentivize officers to live in certain low-income census contracts within the city, and we will encourage officers to volunteer two paid hours every two-week pay period during the regular work shift in an organization in the community that they serve. Next, as I've said before, we often ask our police officers to not only keep the peace, but to deal with challenges that society has failed to address. From mental health, the homelessness, to substance abuse, and everything in between. And it is no..." + 27%

"Families brace for dangerous flo..."
" Good evening and it's great to have you with us here on a very busy Tuesday night. The hurricane, the wildfires and the ABC News Town Hall with President Trump amid this pandemic. We will get to it all here and we begin with Hurricane Sally set to make landfall within hours. States of emergency warnings up tonight from Louisiana clear across to Florida. This is a slow moving storm which could make matters worse expected to dump up to 30 inches of rain with the possible life threatening storm surge. This hurricane with winds 80 miles per hour. The hour bands already reaching the coast tonight. Wind and rain hitting golf shores Alabama. The images coming in from Florida as well. Rough surf along the shores and destined Florida flooding already reported tonight. A barge breaking loose becoming wedged under the Pensacola Bay Bridge. And take a look at the view from space bursts of lightning there as this storm closes in on the coast.

This season alone so let's get right to GP Drology in Jersey with the new track and timing just in tonight. Ginger, what are you expecting? I am expecting Sally by tomorrow morning making landfall but we have been feeling the impacts all day. I am at the head of the dog river. This is the mobile bay which is usually very serene. That is obviously not the case with those white cats. Kicking up here in David it says if Sally has been trying to make its way through peanut butter instead of air. It is moving so slow today. It has had a couple of locking systems. I am going to explain it to you. You see it on satellite. It is about 60 some miles to myself and it should make landfall again tomorrow morning. As it churns toward us overnight we anticipate those heavy bands of rain, winds of 70 to 80 miles per hour. We have already seen dust that put more going above 70 and the timing there shows you along the path. It will make its wa..." + 70%
