>> thanks, honey. >> nothing. >> why is this guy, famous for run-ins with everyone, from flight attendants and photographers, now striking yoga poses? never had treatment from my husband like that when i was pregnant. >> not from alec. >> not well trained. >> exactly. >> has anyone seen alec baldwin like this before? >> no. >> never. it's amazing. ron is like i don't know who he is. >> i do, i do. he's a soap opera star, right? >> right. also coming up -- a hidden danger in your medicine cabinet. how not sticking to the recommend dose of a popular painkiller could land you in the hospital. or worse. dr. jen ashton is here to talk about that. >> 80,000 people a year to the er every year.
a serious subject. also, across the pond, the big royal christening of the future king of england is now less than a month away. and buzz is building in the uk. how william and kate are putting their special stamp on this storied tradition. or shall we say a special coin. >> is that a hint? >> that's a hint. >> subtle hint, thanks, ron. and beneath the dirt and dust, car aficionados are finding treasures in the nebraska this weekend. hundreds of classic chevys decades old, many with only five to ten miles on the odometer. they may not look like much but they are gems. we'll show you much more coming up. but, we're going to start here with a wild night of rain and high winds in the pacific northwest. they're setting records in fact even in a part of the country famous for rain. our meteorologist ginger zee is all over this story. she's tracking the latest. there she is. ginger, good morning. >> good morning to you guys. this is not only record rain, we're talking all-time wettest september days. in both seattle and olympia with almost three inches yesterday. and this thing isn't over.
yesterday, after the rain fell, the first round at least, you had many cars submerged around washington, oregon, too, trees down on power lines. it looked like this, but it sounded like this. record rains pouring through the roof at the seattle airport. as millions in the pacific northwest plow through one of two powerful weekend storms, more than five inches of rain falling in parts of the cascades. some getting more than a month's worth of water in just one day. >> it just came down. it was a -- it was a deluge. >> reporter: and then, the wind. >> the wind is so strong. i can't even contain myself right now. >> reporter: gusting at 70 miles an hour, the high winds tearing at power lines. this morning, thousands are waking up in the dark. more than 20,000 in portland alone. >> a bit of fall excitement here. this is crazy weather. >> reporter: and crazy gets
crazier as a second storm sets its sights on the region yet again today. here we go. we have more rain coming. we're talking three to five inches if you're in the red area. just east of the big metro areas of seattle and portland. seattle could see the wettest september month on record if they get the number up there. couple of more inches. still, it's not just the rain, the wind could be even heftier today. flood watches and warnings and also high wind warnings. a lot of folks along the coast. the wind watches and advisories going all of the way to western montana. much more in the nation's weather coming up. back to bianna. >> a rough few days for folks in the northwest. all right, ginger, thank you. we'll see you in a few minutes. we're going to turn now to washington where, after a late-night session that ran into early this morning, congress is still divided over a new budget bill and the deadline to avert a government shutdown, midnight monday. that's getting closer every minute. among those that would be the hardest hit would be the government workers who would be
told, don't bother heading to work. abc's jeff zeleny is on capitol hill with the very latest. good morning to you, jeff. >> reporter: good morning, bianna, it's been 17 years since the last government shutdown. but the next one is likely to come in less than two days. house republicans following the demand of the tea party activists decided in a rare overnight session to dig in their heels once again and fight. overnight, house republicans doubling down, holding firm on their demand of a one-year delay of obama care at the price of keeping the government running. >> this is program that is too expensive to afford. delay obama care. >> reporter: the house vote pushes the government even closer to the edge of its first shutdown in 17 years. >> what if democrats said we're going to shut down the government if we don't get immigration reform, gay rights or gun control? >> reporter: the biggest question in washington is no longer will the government shut down but who should be blamed if it does? in the middle of it is 27-year-old maria, one of the 800,000 federal employees who
won't be at work or getting paid tuesday morning if there's a shutdown. she has student loans. and recently moved out of her parents' house. >> i live paycheck to paycheck. i don't save up money to pay my bills. i would have to find a way to manage to take care of my bills. >> reporter: for two years, she's worked as an information assistant at the pentagon. riding the roller coaster of budget cuts, furloughs and uncertainty. >> it's just one of those cases where, here we go again. >> reporter: the fears of a shutdown reverberating far outside washington to the air force base in biloxi, mississippi. >> it's definitely going to impact the amount of money i may make. >> reporter: joe jones fears his business will suffer if government employees can't come to work. >> if they were to lose their paychecks like everyone else, that might motivate them to probably solve some of the problems they're facing right now. >> reporter: what is the endgame? that's the question here this
morning in washington without a clear answer. senate majority leader harry reid called what the house did pointless. i'm told by aides this morning, the senate won't consider it, they will object it, sending it back to the house, once again, speaker john boehner will have to decide what he's going to do with this bill. this is putting divided government to a whole new level. >> if this does lead to a government shutdown, you have to wonder how it's going to affect the president's scheduled trip to asia next week. a lot of questions with that. let's go to george stephanopoulos, host of "this week." we talk about the government shut down but we have to mention the debt ceiling, how do these two interact? if we do go over the edge, is the almost better to -- >> jeff was talking who's going to get blamed. the real question is, how long is this government shutdown going to last? it's all but assured that the government is going to shut down for at least a short period of time late monday night, tuesday, we'll see how long it takes to sort that out. but you're right. the debt limit, far more important october 17th. the consequences of missing that deadline catastrophic for the
economy. so a lot of observers do believe that maybe, the house, and senate and the white house get this out of their system on the government funding bill and it will make it easier to pass the debt limit later. but, you know, we've been through this now the last several years. every single time we go to brink it seems like the sides are driven further apart. so there's no guarantee it's going to make it easier. >> let me pick up on that, and let's look at some of footage of house members leaving the capitol. past midnight last night. as we look at the footage, i would like to you to step back and give a more holistic diagnosis, dr. stephanopoulos, are we doomed to endless rounds of this brinksmanship? or, is this a bad phase we're in? >> that's why the president has taken such a hard line on the debt limit thing. he's not going to negotiate with republicans. they say, you are going to negotiate with iranians but not with us?
he says that is a essential, you got to break this fever. you can't allow the press to every time we come up against the debt limit there's going to be a negotiation between the two parties. you just got to say, we got to get back to regular business and pass the debt limit and pay our bills. and that's why he is taking a hard line. >> there's the question, can the fever be broken? george, i know you'll be talking a lot about that later on the show this morning. thanks for coming here, appreciate it. george will have the latest on the potential government shutdown and an interview with former president bill clinton, who has lots of interesting thoughts on this. on this "this week," later this morning. george, thanks again. there was lots of news overnight. of course, as always, of course. >> dr. claiborne. >> yes. dr. claiborne. >> from dr. stephanopoulos to dr. claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. we have breaking news out of london this morning, amazing pictures coming in right now. take a look. 30 people have been rescued from a boat fire on the thames river. you can see smoke pouring from the boat. crews on hand to get everyone off. no word if there are any injuries and right now, no cause. new information on the
yarnell wildfire in arizona that killed 19 firefighters from the granite mountain hot shots team. a report just out says that communications problems and unusual weather conditions created a deadly situation. abc's clayton sandell has more. >> reporter: this morning, a tragic mystery still unsolved. why did 19 elite firefighters leave a safe position only to get caught in the path of a raging inferno? as the yarnell hill fire chewed through the terrain, all radio contact with the granite mountain hotshot team was lost. for 30 minutes, commanders didn't know it. >> no one directed them to move from the location they were in. obviously, they made a decision based on the information that they had. >> reporter: a new report by local and federal fire experts reveals the hot shots likely lost sight of the blaze. in a canyon fuel of tinder dry fuel. that's when powerful winds suddenly turned the flames
directly toward them. >> the wind shifted again. and this time, it shifted and increased in velocity and brought the fire up the canyon at them. >> reporter: with flames closing in, the hot shots had two short minutes to deploy fire shelters like these. >> we're talking about temperatures in excess of 2,000 degrees. >> reporter: the firestorm so extreme, investigators said no one could have survived. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. new details about that controversial nsa surveillance program. according to "new york times," since 2010, the nsa has been tapping into data to track people. they used to identify those people, including americans, they tracked their location, traveling companions and other personal information. and a big shakeup at the top ranks of the nuclear weapons program. vice admiral tim giadina has been suspended and under investigation for issues related
to gambling. he is the number one officer at the u.s. stra treegeic command. and police are investigating a shooting inside of a church in lake charles, louisiana, the victim, the pastor, shot dead while he was preaching. witnesses say the gunman walked into the church, shot the pastor twice at close range. a suspect was arrested a short time later. no word on a motive this morning. and a wild scene at a high school football game in indiana, south bend, indiana, when a brawl broke out on the field on friday, benches clearing. coaches even getting involved. school officials said they're considering whether to file criminal charges over that incident. and, you know, it takes weeks to build a bridge but only seconds to bring one down. take a look at this. a bridge connecting two counties in western pennsylvania, well, it's no more. an enthusiastic crowd was on hand to watch it come down. problem now, there's no way to get from one side to the other. >> no, i see it, it's right
there. >> yeah. it's a new bridge. couldn't fool you, bianna. >> she misses nothing. nothing. >> sharp eagle eye. >> i got that eye, exactly. and finally, speaking of texas, one of the greats in baseball has played his last game in texas. houston, texas, and he went out in style. andy pettitte of the new york yankees, pitching his final game of his long, illustrious career last night against the houston astros. in his hometown of houston, he pitched a complete game for the win and received a standing ovation from the crowd after the final out and in fact the houston astros players went on to the field to clap and applaud. >> that's what we do in houston. that's how we celebrate. >> it's not football. >> thanks, ron. now a "gma" health alert. new report on the popular painkiller acetaminophen. often sold under the name tylenol. but it's in hundreds of drugs. between 2001 and 2010, more than 1,500 people died from accidental acetaminophen overdoses.
abc news senior medical contributor dr. jen ashton is here this morning. >> good morning, guys. >> yeah. we appreciate you coming in. this is not a new issue. what's going on? are people not getting the message? >> you're right, this is not a new issue. the problem is, both patients or the lay public, consumer, as well as the medical community, the message is not getting through, we're talking about preventable deaths here. so this is something that, as you said, is in hundreds of medications over the counter and prescription. people need to know the number, the maximum daily dose, which is 4,000 milligrams in a 24 hour period. if necessary, they need to get out a calculator, add up what they're taking or ask their pharmacist or their physician, because this can kill. only a small amount over that 4,000 milligrams can cause liver failure or be deadly. >> such a popular and prevalent drug. what happens if in fact you do overdose? >> well, first of all, the liver is the major metabolic organ in
the body. initially, short term, you would have nausea, vomiting. you could have no symptoms for a while as the abnormalities kick in. it could lead to coma. this is something that needs to be taken seriously. if you are on pain medication or multiple medications, you need to look for this ingredient, acetaminophen, and do the math and add it up. i tell my patients, try to stay in the 3,000 milligram range. just to be safe. no alcohol. >> no alcohol whatsoever? >> i think you want to err on the side of caution. we're talking about 150 deaths a year that are unnecessary. >> even if you sprained your knee and you're taking tylenol. >> no drinking, better safe than sorry. >> it's also important to raid the label. >> read the label or ask pharmacists. they're a huge resource. and we're not using them enough. >> dr. ashton, thank you. thanks so much for coming in. >> appreciate it. well, we're going to turn now overseas, there's a new baby, you have heard of him, prince george. >> yeah, i think i have heard of him. >> the fanfare around him isn't over quite yet. the world's most famous baby --
well, britain is busily preparing for the newest royal's christening. it's important in the church of england and we're learning more details this morning about the event being called an intimate affair. abc's lama hassan is in london with the details. everyone wants to get a peek of his face, lama. >> reporter: good morning to you, bianna, mark your diary, synchronize your watches, because we finally have a date for that long-awaited christening of little prince george. all the details chosen by william and kate. showing yet again how unique that are as a royal couple. the date, october 23rd. the place, the chapel royal at st. james's palace. the event, the royal christening of prince george alexander louis. third in line to the throne. william and kate break from tradition, picking a venue that hasn't hosted a royal christening for 25 years. a place where diana was last bid farewell by her family.
before her funeral. >> i think what's really nice all of the way through his relationship with kate, he has included his mother in some way. he gave kate his mother's engagement ring. and this is a way of him including princess diana in prince george's life as well. >> reporter: but don't expect to attend this royal ceremony. this is typically a private event for close family and friends. there is one way to feel included. you're very own commemorative coin. the coins will be available in solid going, silver and a more affordable option. this is the first time new coins have ever been produced for a royal christening in britain. >> and i think that really says everything about just how big a moment this christening is for the country. >> reporter: prince george's christening will be conducted by the archbishop of canterbury. the baby will wear a replica of the christening gown made for queen victoria's eldest daughter in 1841. the queen is also expected to pose in a highly anticipated portraits including all three
future monarchs. her son charles, prince of wales. her grandson, william, and of course, great grandson george. >> it's the first time that a picture of this kind has been taken in more than 100 years and to have four generations of the royal family and the queen and three kings in waiting is a pretty special thing. >> reporter: and as a betting nation, the bets are already on to who will take the important role of being godfather and god mother. in the lead, uncle harry and auntie pippa. members of the royal family usually get about six god parents. so there is still room for more. all of those details will be revealed closer to the christening. bianna and dan, back to you. >> the other detail, what is kate going to wear? she always looks fabulous anyway. lama, thank you. >> ron and i have been taking bets on that for weeks. ron is going with lavender. >> i'm thinking lavender. what do you think? >> polka dots, maybe. >> i don't want to reveal now.
ginger, save me, please? >> i under, she will wear ox blood in. i don't know. it's supposed to be in. i don't know, i just read the magazines. let's talk about the weather and get to dallas, we'll go to wfaa's state fair video because it was a wet one, they got about a half inch in dallas. much-needed rain. but in some places, it same too fast. south and east, three inches. san antonio, had some water rescues. so, now that cold front moves off to the east and you'll see some drying up. dallas warming up to around 90 by the time we get to the start of the work week. let's move on, then, i want to show you a live shot, this is from washington, d.c., lot of people on the east coast had a great day on saturday. and if you're in knoxville, tennessee, you'll end up in 75. coastal new england, you have fog to deal with. once that burns off, it will be nice. little cooler, cooled by the ocean there. boston, 63 for a high today. we'll see some warming in places that had all of the snow. wyoming, look at this, they had snow and now, 76. that's fall
