7:03 am
only thing left standing are those chimneys. firefighters continue to defend downtown santa rosa from the onslaught of flames from the ground and from the air, residents taking stock of all they have lost in the heart of the california wine country. >> a lot of people lost a lot of houses. we lost businesses, big buildings, small buildings, i feel for you. i apologi apologize. >> reporter: all around the haunting ruins of what was. cars immolated. this vehicle melted into an aluminum puddle. >> personally i think it will be one of the worst disasters in california history. >> reporter: the fires claiming at least 17 lives across the state. >> it is with sorrow that i tell you today that we have confirmed two fatalities, charles and sara rippey. >> reporter: the couple had been together for 75 years. in napa county one winery owner returning to the remains of his building, he says he watched the

7:05 am
one of them had been steve liner, we met his brother al who was getting desperate. are you worried about him? >> very, yeah. yeah. >> so we drove him in. >> called him a number of times. i've gone up to the v.a. to see if he's checked in with the v.a. i've gone on facebook and posted some stuff on facebook. >> reporter: destruction everywhere but not on his brother's street. >> is that him? >> that's him. i've been looking for two days for you guys. sheriff's officials tell me they expect to find most but not all of those missing people. they do expect the death toll to rise. that is the state of california, asking for reinforcements of firefighters from out of state. that's how strapped they are. but a sliver of good news, guys. you might remember chris pond. we saw her yesterday digging through the rubble. she was looking for her wedding ring. she was crying hysterically. well, she just facebooked us
7:06 am
this morning telling us that she found that ring. so a bit of good news this morning. >> tiny bit of encourage. what a wasteland in santa rosa. >> it's heartbreaking to look at those images. those brothers reconnect is the great news about it. these fires are still burring strong. most are barely contained and let's go to ginger for the latest fire forecast. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: you know, we had a brief break yesterday to how to make them more manageable to fight. through tomorrow and even saturday, red flag warnings in place for much of northern california. there's a fire weather watch. that's for later in the week for southern california. it's because of the winds. those are going to gust after a cold front passed through. more to the north and northwest. you can see even santa rosa gusting to almost 40 and that's this afternoon and evening. then by friday that front maybes it to southern california. humidity is low. winds kick up. this is not good. guys. >> boy, it sure is not. stay on top.
7:07 am
we'll move to escalating tension with north korea. military drills were conducted over the peninsula after questions swirl about them stealing sensitive war plans from south korea. martha raddatz in washington with the latest. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. the tension between the u.s. and north korea is relentless. every day it seems more alarming news and this morning it's so disturbing. we know the u.s. and south korea have updated war planning in the last few months doing lots of secret simulatings and exercises, but now reports that north korea hacked into those classified plans through the south korean military computer network. this according to a south korean lawmaker who said those stolen plans include details about how kim jong-un would be removed from power, it's called the decapitation plan if war breaks out on the korean peninsula, george. >> we're seeing bombing drills repetitively. a way to maintain the pressure and keep them contained.
7:08 am
>> reporter: you know, the secretaries of state and defense insist the u.s. is on a diplomatic track, but i would call this coercive diplomacy because we've all heard fiery threats from the president and seen this repeated show of force which certainly does send a strong message. george. >> you got the president saying diplomacy cannot work here. okay, martha raddatz, thanks very much. >> george, now to those explosive new allegations about harvey weinstein, stars like gwyneth paltrow and angelina jolie coming forward saying they also received unwanted sexual advances from the movie mogul and now stunning secretly recorded audio of weinstein urging an actress to go into his hotel room has emerged and linsey davis is here with the latest on this growing scandal. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning. nearly 30 accusers and counting. in less than a week harvey weinstein has lost his job, his respect and now his wife. we're talking about a man who has been thanked more than god at the academy awards and now scathing words for harvey weinstein including from the board of the company he founded
7:09 am
calling his alleged action antithetical to human decency. the explosive new allegations against harvey weinstein now include rape and the audiotape in which the media mogul himself admits to touching an italian model without her consent. >> i'm going to take a shower. you sit there and have a drink. >> reporter: the recording obtained by "the new yorker" and verified by abc news was part of a sting operation by the new york police. >> you touched my breast. >> please, i'm sorry, just come on in. i'm used to that. >> you're used to that. >> yes, come in. >> reporter: you can see the woman say no to weinstein 12 times. >> the number of times this woman says she's uncomfortable. she wants to leave is upsetting to listen to obviously and then, of course, there's also the very significant fact that he concedes this conduct took place and describes it as something he is used to. >> reporter: according to the manhattan d.a.'s office the case was never prosecuted because the
7:10 am
audio was insufficient to prove a crime under new york law. the author of the account says multiple executives and assistants described a familiar pattern of behavior and a culture of complicity and three women including actress asia argento say they were raped by him and forced to perform sex acts. two of hollywood's biggest stars add their names to the growing list of accusers, gwyneth paltrow says early on in her career weinstein summoned her to his suite for a work meeting and placed his hands on her. then suggested they head to the bedroom for massages. i was a kid. i was petrified she told "the times." i thought he was going to fire me. paltrow says she told her then boyfriend brad pitt who confronted weinstein telling him never to touch paltrow again. years later, she thanked him at the academy awards. >> i would like to thank harvey weinstein. >> reporter: angelina jolie also told the paper that weinstein made unwanted advances toward her in a hotel room in the
7:11 am
late '90s. i had a bad experience with harvey weinstein in my youth and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did. nearly 30 women now say they have been harassed, assaulted or raped by weinstein, among them this screenwriter. >> after about 30 minutes he asked to excuse himself and go to the bathroom. he returned in nothing but a robe with the front open and he was buck naked. >> reporter: a-listers including leading men whose careers weinstein helped make -- >> harvey weinstein who believes in us. >> reporter: -- now lining up to condemn him. ben affleck calling his actions sick and in another interview matt damon adding this is the kind of sex wag predation that keeps me up at now. now his wife of ten years, fashion designer georgina chapman is also backing away saying in a statement to "people" magazine, my heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable
7:12 am
actions. i have chosen to leave my husband. weinstein did not respond to requests for comment but his spokesperson gave a statement to "the new yorker" saying any allegations of nonconsensual sex are denied by mr. weinstein and he has further confirmed there were never any acts of retaliation against women for refusing his advances. we're hearing from his brother who has harsh words for him. >> bob has been his partner throughout all their success but has harsh words saying my brother harvey is obviously a very sick man. i've urged him to seek immediate professional help because he is in dire need of it. his remorse and apologies to the victims of his abuse are hollow. he has proven himself to be a world class liar and now rather than seeking help he is looking to blame others. i pray he gets the help that he needs. he's been condemned by hillary clinton, the obamas, his friends, it's got to be harsh coming from his brother. >> just brutal.
7:13 am
new details about last week's mass shooting in las vegas as we learn more about how the gunman got that arsenal into his he tell room. his girlfriend and brother are facing new scrutiny. brian ross with the latest. >> reporter: as the fbi continues to press the shooter's longtime girlfriend for more detail she's been placed on a u.s. government travel watch list as a key witness so the authorities will be notified if she tries to board a flight or leave the country. according to federal law enforcement authorities, marilou danley has been designated a selectee by the tsa. based on her potential importance to investigators. she has denied knowing what her live-in boyfriend of three years was up to in the house they shared but one senior law enforcement official told abc news they want to make sure danley, an australian citizen doesn't suddenly decide to leave the country. authorities also say they are keeping a close eye on paddock's brother eric who is now in las vegas. he too has said he had no idea
7:14 am
what his brother was planning. >> we're still just completely befuddled. >> reporter: he reportedly cannot find a funeral home to deal with his brother's body. more than a week after the shooting, investigators still have many questions for the mandalay bay hotel. authorities tell abc news that paddock as a high roller was allowed use of the service elevators and he used them to bring his cases of weapons to his 32nd floor suite avoiding the security checks in place in the front lobby and questions remain about whether the hotel failed to act quickly enough after a hotel security guard called in to say he had been shot in the hallway through the door. some six minutes before the concert rampage began. >> in those six minutes you may have been able to create a disruption of some sort that would have kept him from doing what he ultimately did. >> reporter: the owner of the mandalay bay bay mgm would not answer any of her questions citing the ongoing investigation.
7:15 am
and behind the scenes the fbi and the las vegas sheriff are apparently not getting along all that well with some agents complaining the sheriff has put obstacles in the way of their investigation, no comment, george, this morning from the fbi or the sheriff's office. >> a lot of questions left to answer. thanks very much. some really special and emotional moments in las vegas last night as the city's new hockey team, the golden knights, played their first home game. they honored all of those first responders from the shooting rampage by escorting each and every one of them onto the ice as their names were called. the team paid tribute to the victims by holding a moment of silence for 58 seconds, one second for search life lost and they tweeted an image saying tonight vegas showed what it was made of. vegas strong all around that rink instead of where advertising is and it was a powerful moment. >> well deserved moment for them, for the first responders. we turn now to the nfl and the battle over the national anthem. owners are considering a rule change forcing players to stand.
7:16 am
the debate kicked in high gear again this week after the vice president left the game early when some players knelt. abc's t.j. holmes is here with more. good morning, t.j. >> strit seems the owners are taking a stand and it would be stand up. not in the form of a request to the players, it would be possibly a new rule. the nfl wants all players on their feet for the national anthem and might not give them a choice in the matter. after weeks of demonstrations in which some players sat or knelt, the league is now considering a new rule forcing all players to stand for the anthem or face penalties. nfl commissioner roger goodell sent a letter to team owners saying we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem. we need to move past this controversy. jerry jones of the dallas cowboys who knelt with his team before the anthem earlier this season this week put his players on notice stand for the anthem or sit for the game. >> i had hoped that this issue
7:17 am
would kind of subside and go away. if you do not honor and stand for the flag, then you won't play. >> reporter: the white house backed that ultimatum. >> i think we would certainly support the nfl coming out and asking players to stand just as the president has done. >> reporter: president trump tweeted his approval. a big salute to jerry jones, owner of the dallas cowboys who will bench players who disrespect our flag. goodell who fishily said he was proud of our league for the demonstrations now acknowledges the current dispute over the national anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game and is now dividing us and our players from many fans across the country. the protests have sharply divided the country. one poll shows 43% of americans say kneeling during the anthem is the right thing to do, 49% say it's wrong. and the nfl owners are meeting next week and they are going to discuss this so we'll see what happens and, stra, we were talking about it already in the book, the handbook, right. it says that players should stand for the anthem.
7:18 am
they're harping on that word should. it doesn't say must so right now it's a suggestion and not a rule and they could change just some language to make everybody stand. >> they really think the president will push through this taking away the tax deduction. >> i mean they already lost their tax -- it's not even a big issue. they gave it up a couple of years ago so it's not even a big issue at this point anymore. >> all right. t.j., thank you very much. let's go back to ginger with >> just as we see some of the pictures coming from the sonoma sheriff this is what it looks like inside driving through the fires. they're still happening now. we have a lot of dry air and winds coming at us. humidity down to less than 10 percent by the end of the week. chilly cities brought to you by gain now
7:19 am
>> first time i've seen that one. storm tracker6 live double scan and we have a couple of spring coles and showers over south jersey. delaware is getting a bit more and a bit more of that in the northern suburbs. this not impactful really but maybe slowing you down a bit down south. mainly cloudy skies over the commodore barry bridge. most of us in the 60's this morning. we're down out of the 80's but mild with a high of 75. more sprinkles and showers possible later and some drizzle tomorrow, 66, cooler. right here on "gma."

losing their chance to make the world cup for the first time in more than 30 year, but how it happened is even more heartbreaking. one of the u.s. players accid t accidentally scoring on his own team. that player saying we let down an entire nation. >> a nightmare. >> complete nightmare. no one expected this. >> not at all. we move on for more on harvey weinstein. still last week still ahood titan then that "the new york times" article last thursday detailing decades of sexual harassment allegations by interns, employees and actresses including ashley judd and rose mcgowan. weinstein apologized but also threatened to sue "the times." by sunday night he was fired by the company he co-founded. tuesday, a flood of new accusers stepped forward including gwyneth paltrow and angelina jolie. some accused him of sexual assault. we are joined now by two of weinstein's accusers, katherine kendall and louisette geiss, also louisette's lawyer gloria allred. katherine, let me begin with you. this happened at the beginning
7:32 am
of your contrary. tell us what happened. >> yeah, i was 23 years old and i had a meeting with miramax and met with harvey, he was very warm, he made me feel like he would be a mentor to me. he gave me scripts, said welcome to the miramax family, come to screenings, you know, come to auditions and he just made it feel like it was going to be a fun process and that he was sort of taking me under his wing. it was in his office so it felt very legitimate and he invited me to a screening which i went to and it ended up being just a movie with -- >> just you and him. >> just me and harvey and i sort of had that sinking feeling the whole time through the movie like this is so -- this isn't -- something is really wrong and, you know, very uncomfortable. >> you made it through the movie then what happened?
7:33 am
>> i tried to sort of skirt away and say, i've got to go home now. he said let's have a drink. i said no. he said, you know, a lot of bargaining with him. there is a lot of just do this, just do that. i've got to run up to my apartment, it's right here. i'll wait downstair, i say. he says, come up, come up. there is a back and forth there for about five minutes. i finally go upstairs and i relaxed a little bit. i see pictures of his wife on the wall. i think, okay, this is -- i'm in a safe place. he knows that i know he's a family man and i -- we talk about our politics, books we love, movies we love, i feel like i'm having an intelligent conversation with him and he's taking me seriously. >> when does it turn? >> it turned when i'm about to leave and we're wrapping up and goes to the bathroom and comes back in nothing but a robe. at which point he asks me for a
7:34 am
massage. i say, no, i'm not comfortable. he tells me lots of people do it. he name dropped some models that he said did it all the time. and made me feel sort of like silly like i was making a big deal out of nothing and then he went to the bathroom and came back and this time he was fully naked. >> fully naked. >> and he was -- fully naked. and he's a very large man, so i mean it was sort of a terrifying experience and very disorienting, like what -- i mean, how is this happening? who does this? and he's blocking the door, you know, i can't -- >> how did you get out? >> it became sort of a cat and mouse chase and i mean i was terrified. i had a ton of adrenaline going through my body. and it was a negotiation. it was a wrestle. you know, it was -- it wasn't a physical wrestle but it was an emotional wrestle and i felt
7:35 am
like it was just time just went on and on and i couldn't get through. >> thank goodness you did finally get out and louisette, i want to hear your story. you went in 2008, 15 years later for a business meeting but the story eerily similar. >> it's quite amazing how similar they are. >> what happened to you? >> i met harvey first at the cannes film festival and sundance film festival where i was pitching a script and when i saw him there he had invited me to his latest premiere. i attended and after he asked me, hey, i want to hear your script and why don't you pitch me your ideas so we decided to meet at the restaurant where we both were staying. and shortly after the restaurant was closing so i didn't even have time to pitch so he said, well, why don't we go up to my office and at film festivals as you probably know, hotel rooms are turned into offices and so
7:36 am
you know, i felt hesitant because i heard and been in the business for awhile, had heard some things about him, but nothing solidified, of course, and so i said, well, i saw a security camera right by me and i said, you know, i'll go up and take this meeting with you if you promise not to touch me and he laughed it off and shook my hand and said, of course, not and so we went and we had a great meeting and like the other woman said, you know, very intelligent conversation, so i was enjoying myself and then he stepped away to go to the bathroom and when he showed back up he was just in a robe and as i've mentioned buck naked and it was pretty shocking and i was taken aback obviously. >> you know, you knew enough at the time to make -- try to extract a promise from him. it seemed like an open secret at the time. you told some of your friends and i think your sister at the time, as well.
7:37 am
why not go to the authorities and do you understand how this remained an open secret for so long in hollywood? >> absolutely, i mean, there's nothing that i would have liked more than to have come out and said something, but it was very clear to me and stated to me that if i say anything, i'll have a slew of lawyers on my back and no one is going to believe me over the media mogul, harvey weinstein and i mean as evidenced by these huge actresses, angelina jolie and gwyneth paltrow, i mean, if they're not speaking up, who was i? i was no one at the time and i knew very well that they would not believe me over him and as the adage goes of you won't ever work in this town again, i mean, that was pretty much known to me and which is why i ended up getting out of the business because i realized either i have to put up with this kind of behavior on a daily basis or i get out and i chose, you know, to be treated like a human.
7:38 am
>> so, gloria, what happens now? i mean more women coming forward. any action to be taken against harvey weinstein? >> yes, george, and i'm so proud of louisette and all the other accusers have come forward, took a great deal of courage, but right now we have offered publicly to harvey weinstein and his attorneys that there be access to justice, both for him and for all the alleged victims. so what we propose instead of having a war is to have an arbitration which is a private trial. we could agree on a retired judge and let's let the alleged victims come in, present their evidence against mr. weinstein, mr. weinstein can present his defenses, if the judge finds in favor of the alleged victims the judge can order damages according to proof at trial. if the judge finds in favor of harvey weinstein, he can announce that to the public. so all will have their day in court. we think that's fair and we
7:39 am
think it's time for the persons who allege that they are victims to have their day in court as well and i think that's an important process and looking forward to hearing from mr. weinstein's attorneys. i'm certainly hearing from more victims, persons who allege they are victims as well. >> thank you all for your time this morning. we'll be right back. i was a good soldier. i had purpose and i loved it. two army commendation medals... impressive. you never told me you were a hero. ♪ has anybody seen my soldier i'm not a hero. we're brothers, we look after each other. ♪ has anybody seen my soldier thank you for looking after my son. i'm alive because of you. thank you for your service. rated r. fortified.tored. replenished. emerge everyday with emergen-c

rebecca jarvis is here with more on this very important story. rebecca. >> that's right, good morning to all of you and this issue might be getting more attention than ever before, but we know that it's been going on underneath the surface in every industry for years. it's a story as old as hollywood itself. tales of sexual favors and sexual harassment for a chance at stardom. kept under wraps, an open secret until now. in the past week women coming forth with their stories of harassment and abuse by super producer harvey weinstein. stars like angelina jolie, ashley judd and gwyneth paltrow now sharing their stories, paltrow telling "the new york times" the alleged harassment was during her breakout role in "emma." >> incomprehensible thing in the world is a woman who rejects his offer of marriage. >> reporter: she was just 22 years old. she said she refused his unwanted advances and kept mum. i thought he was going to fire
8:16 am
me. >> when you're just starting out, you know there are hundreds if not thousands of people would want your job. coming forward about sexual harassment and assault is not an easy thing to do especially if your entire career is on the line. >> reporter: but sexual harassment is not just a hollywood problem. we spoke to working women from all kinds of industries late last year. >> how many of you have been sexually harassed over the course of your career? leave your hand up if it's more than twice. more than three times. more than four times. how many of you have been referred to, show of hands, as a girl, a doll, a babe or honey at work? sweetheart belongs on that list as well. how many have heard you're too emotional? >> you're being too emotional. now don't get so emotional. that's the new word for sexism and put you down but if you say anything, you're emotional because you're a woman. >> reporter: and then this shocking drop in hands.
8:17 am
how many of you filed an hr request against your harasser? but isn't hr supposed to be the safe place to report harassment? >> typically the women are younger, they may be a status that's dependent upon their job and the perpetrators know this and, in fact, prey on them and count on their silence. >> i sort of silenced myself. i felt in that moment i felt like there's an erasure of yourself. >> i have to think about my values and what's important to me and weigh them against my career. >> it's still hard for women and men who have been victims of sexual harassment to talk about it which really speaks to how much we still stigmatize victims and the goal is to empower women to speak up which means that the perpetrators need very severe consequences. >> all right, let's bring in hollywood reporters tv editor marisa guthrie and dan abrams along with rebecca. marisa, we have long heard about the casting couch in hollywood.
8:18 am
could this story be the tipping point to ending it. >> i hope so. i think everybody hopes so. i mean, this is so extreme. these allegations are so extreme and they've been circulating for decades in hollywood. so i think this is a wake-up call and there are other shoes to drop here. >> rebecca, we just heard marisa say these allegations have been swirling for decades. talk a little about the lack of reporting in cases like this. women just don't feel confident coming forward. >> we know from the eeoc which is the major body that looks into these issues that 94% of the time as much as 94% of the time, they don't get talked about. they don't file complaints. and part of the issue is the imbalance of power and the fear that many women face and men who are in this situation in that imbalance of power, we've heard of eeoc research that 75% of the time those who do complain face retaliation. >> and, dan, we heard gloria allred speaking earlier about a possible class action civil
8:19 am
arbitration. what do you make of that strategy. >> first of all listening to those women earlier this morning, it's just so gross is the bottom line. listening to those accounts of what they say happened to them. look, what gloria allred is effectively asking for is for harvey weinstein to waive the statute of limitations and agree to enter into arbitration. it's not going to happen. i'm not criticizing dmror ra allred for offering it as an option. it's just not going to happen. the statute of limitations is a real problem in cases like this, why? because as we're talking, women are afraid to come forward. they don't want to come forward. they don't know what the impact will be on their careers, their lives, et cetera, which is why you see more and more states trying to change the statute of limitations but here you have a real statute of limitations problem both in terms of civil and criminal. this one possible criminal case that we know of now that could be brought based on an interesting statute of limitations argument. >> marisa, as we hear women come forward we're now starting to hear from some men who are
8:20 am
speaking out and speaking up against harvey weinstein. what role do men play in this? >> they have to -- it can't be, you know, the girls, you know, the sisterhood against the old boys club. it has to be everybody speaking out about this and raising their hand and saying, i saw this and we can't tolerate this and that's part of the reason that these allegations about harvey could -- he could keep doing this for so long because everybody kept quiet about it. and people who knew about it kept quiet about it and i think we're going to hear from more people coming forward or being outed as, you know, having -- it's who knew what when with this. >> speelging to that, rebecca, talk about the impact this may have on any other potential victims seeing some of the pose powerful women in hollywood stepping forward and saying it happened to me. >> i think there is strength in number and the outcome here is really going to ultimately dictate how other whimper receive this. if harvey weinstein, for example, goes back to his career
8:21 am
and if there are not ultimately issues and the women who are coming out face issues in retaliation in their careers, they're going to be women who are fearful to do the same. but if the opposite happens, if justice is served, if the women who have come forward go on to flourish in their careers and this isn't an issue or taken on their reputation then you're going to see more women feel comfortable and i do think there is strength in numbers here. >> you're going to see more women come forward against harvey weinstein. >> i think everyone has said that. dan, i want to ask, you mentioned there is right now potentially one criminal case in this. we were talking earlier about what makes some of these cases just, you know, he's a bad guy, he is a predator versus he's doing something criminally wrong. >> the bottom line the difference between sexual harassment and assault, sexual harassment is workplace, a variety of types of them that can occur in the workplace, the bathrobe incident, walking in saying, you know, walking out suddenly naked, et cetera, a sexual assault is contact.
8:22 am
is basically taking someone, forcing someone to do something, touching someone in a way. even a touch by the way can be a sexual assault. don't forget that. that if you are touched inappropriately, workplace, not workplace, that's a sexual assault. that can be something you can and should report. so it's really important to think about these things because it is just such a scary when we look back at everything that happened here. >> for so long. >> oh. >> incredible pattern of bad behavior according to all of these women, dan, marisa, rebecca, thank you very much. very important conversation. we appreciate it. [cheers and applause] >> you know what right near times square, amy, we are trying to set a guinness world record. and by we, i mean the harlem globetrotters. they are doing half court shots and trying to make it to the 200 before the hour is over. we're already seeing numbers of 184. these guys are well over, i think they'll have absolutely no problems in the next half hour of making this happen.

[ applause ] he's got a question. >> so, i had a question for you. how did your interactions with
8:47 am
nerd fighters sort of shape your writing of the book? >> well, i mean it shaped my writing of the book so much in so many ways. i mean, the great thing about my job i get to hear from teenagers and young people every single day and youtube comments and that's really helpful but also i was writing for you guys when no one was reading it in these like coded blogs that only a few people could read and that was super helpful to me because i was able to write for a really small audience that was generous so thank you. >> you get to communicate in two different ways. you write alone all morning then go do the videos in the afternoon. >> yeah, it's perfect for me because i get to spend a lot of time alone in my basement which is great. and then spend my afternoon connecting with people directly online. >> you're going to connect with millions with "turtles all the way down." john green, thanks for coming in. >> thank you. everyone should know everyone here in the audience is going home with a copy.
