7:02 am
warning. you can see this concert stage suddenly heaving forward from the water's impact, dragging people away. >> the tsunami may have been triggered by a volcanic eruption on an island formed after one of the largest eruptions occurred -- the crakatau volcano more than a century ago. >> here's what we know so far. at least 222 people have been reported dead. 843 injured and at least 28 missing. those numbers are sadly expected to rise. we have team coverage. we kick things off with julia macfarland in our london bureau. julia, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. indonesia is still recovering from the last time this happened only three months ago. this time, however, huge waves have devastated an area close to the most populous part of the country, just a few hours' drive from the capital. this is the terrifying moment the massive wall of water came
7:03 am
crashing on to the shores of indonesia's most populous islands. the tsunami slamming into this celebration without warning, sweeping away everything in sight. the killer wave may have been triggered by this volcanic eruption just after 9:30 in the evening on the island of krakatau. the massive fire exploding from the volcano visible for miles. the underwater landslide happening 124 miles from the capital of jakarta. local or 200 are on firmed dead. with more than 800 injured. the number of missing growing and expected to rise as rescue crews sift through the mangled mess left behind. the water crashing 65 feet inland, decimating towns and hotels in the popular tourist area, packed with travelers on vacation for the holidays. the huge tide may have been affected by the full moon, making the wave more devastating. the aftermath horrifying. the tsunami tearing apart hundreds of homes, sweeping away
7:04 am
hotels, flooding streets and overturning cars. this morning the lead vocalist of a popular indonesian band performing under a tent peeking out announcing to his fans several band members were killing in the wave. asking for prayers for the one the injured rushed to hospitals in the area, many needing to be tended to right on the streets. rescue teams rummage through the rubble in search of survivors. >> and the priority is to make sure that if there isbblet ey r safety. >> reporter: the view from above capturing the devastation. entire towns swept away. local officials say indonesia doesn't have a tsunami warning system for detecting tsunamis from volcanic activity because these systems rely on detecting earthquakes. this wave triggered by an underwater landslide. this latest incident comes just
7:05 am
three months after a massive tsunami hit killing at least 382 people. the areas around the straight are usually accessible. but aid workers have told us that roads have been damaged. there's now fears the devastation will prevent help from coming quickly to those who need it most. >> julia, you were born in jakarta and are familiar with this region. what can you tell us about the tsunami warning system and whether or not it worked in this case? >> reporter: whit, it's know dwroirsly unreliable. it suffered in recent years through lack of funding. indonesia is hooked up on blackberry, messenger and whatsapp. so news travels fastest on apps. the issue with this latest disaster is that the tsunami warning system monitors earthquakes and there wasn't one registered this time. we think this may have been caused by aunds water landslide. and as far as we know, there's
7:06 am
no system in place that monitors that. whit? >> truly a devastating event. julia macfarland, thank you. joining us now by phone we have a reporter with an australian newspaper. you spent the day in the disaster area. talk us through a little bit of what you saw as you started going through. >> this main area where -- last night is about 10 ks from the indonesian capital of jakarta. all along the road we drove today you saw village after village hit hard by the wave. we saw cars picked up and overturned and strewn a dozen or so shipping containers. we saw a tractor that looked like it had been sent flying. we saw houses that basically had been flattened by the wave when it swept through last night. >> talking to those people in those areas, are they able to get in touch with their loved ones to find out if everyone is okay?
7:07 am
>> unlike with an earthquake, there's been a couple of those in indonesia, most of the communication infrastructure seems to be working. it's really quite -- some villages have a strong phone signal. some villages that have none. the other thing that stood out because it's near the capital, more help seems to be getting to people than the previous two disasters in indonesia this year. we saw dozens of army trucks, police vehicles, heavy earth-moving equipment, all those sorts of things. help is getting through after what nearly 24 hours or so. there are a lot of people without power who lost their homes and lost their lives. >> where are all those people staying now? >> seems like a combination of elters set up for people who are now homeless and they're spotted through villages. usually attached to a local mayor's office or something like that. some will be sleeping in temporary shelters essentially
7:08 am
outside tonight. >> for people who have never been in that area, can you give us a sense of how populated that area is? >> java, which is the main indonesian island is home to something like 140 million people. it's a small island. it's very densely populated. >> i'm sure lots of help continues to pour in. james, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate your help. >> of course. pleasure talking to you. >> that devastation just incredible to look at this morning. >> one thing we have seen from the video, just the element of surprise. people carrying on and obviously didn't know it was coming. >> it's a beautiful country. they've dealt with a lot. it continues this morning. >> sure have. >> the impact of a tsunami can be devastating. rob is here with more on what causes them. rob? >> good morning, again, guys. as we mentioned, we had a tsunami just about three months ago out there.
7:09 am
all around this ring of fire we get around the u.s. and we have the combination of threats of earthquakes and volcano eruptions. from the aleutian islands back through krakatau, cht has been erupting for years. we do think because of eruption there we had an underwater landslide which does the same thing that the regular tsunami does. you get a displacement of water. these things can travel up to 400, 500 miles an hour. when you look at where the krakatau island is to java, it's less than 100 miles away. so even with a warning system, it would take less than ten minutes for this tsunami to get to where it was. i'll say this as well. the usgs and the tsunami warning centers, very limited information coming out of there this morning because in part of the government shutdown. guys, mack over to you. >> rob, thank you. that gets us to our big story here at home this morning. the all but evaporated chances that the partial shut down of the federal government
7:10 am
will end before christmas. members of the house and senate heading home until the 27th. they stopped negotiating with the president locked in a seeming stalemate with democrats over funding for his border wall. >> abc's white house correspondent tara palmeri is on capitol hill with the latest this morning. good morning, tara. >> reporter: good morning, eva. both sides are calling this a political stunt. republicans don't want to settle for less than $2 billion in wall funding and democrats don't want to pay for the wall. after all the president did say during the dmanlt mex -- campaign that mexico would pay for the wall. >> negotiations continue. >> reporter: house and senate leaders declaring the congress out of session until after christmas. >> will it get done before christmas? >> doesn't look like it. >> i don't think so. >> reporter: conservatives urging the president to hold his ground. >> the wall at our southern border is a promise you made, ran on, got elected on and must keep. >> reporter: the president feeling the pressure. skipping his palm beach vacation to stay in washington while
7:11 am
400,000 government employees work without pay. tweeting i will not be going to florida because of th staying in the white house. after hours of negotiation the deadlock still over the wall. both sides still digging in. >> president trump, if you want to open the government you must to sus lg tdn necessary. >> reporter: after a lunch meeting with president trump on saturday, republican lawmakers said they would settle for less than the $5 billion president trump originally demanded. republicans were not willing to accept the $1.6 billion that schumer offered the president before the midterms. and his latest offer is even lower, at $1.3 billion. >> if i wrote a book called the "art of the deal," i don't think i would take an offer of 1.3 when you had previously offered
7:12 am
me 1.6. you want to know how silly this is, america? >> reporter: in a meeting with senate minority leader chuck schumer, vice president mike the booffered he also asked they loosen restrictions on how border security money is spent. this is much lower than the $5 billion that president trump originally asked for. even that schumer said they're very far apart. eva. >> thanks, tara. president trump also facing new fallout over his decision to withdraw troops from syria. a second member from his administration who is key to the fight against isis is stepping down because of this move. now the president is fighting back. abc's lana zak is at the white house with more on this story. >> reporter: overnight president trump reacting to the resignation of brett mcgurk. after the top u.s. envoy to the global coalition to defeat isis said he could not carry out the president's orders to withdraw from syria and, quote, maintain my integrity. the president hitting back in a
7:13 am
flurry of tweets, calling mcgurk a grand-standing and downplaying his resignation as a nothing event. president trump said if anyone else made st critics of the syria decision are actually alice of the president. >> this decision is a disaster. on multiple were tsat leave w. >> reporter: mcgurk's announcement comes on the heels of the resignation of secretary of defense james mattis who in his resignation letter wrote we cannot protect our interests without maintaining strong alliances, the example mattis specifically mentioned, mcgurk's defeat isis coalition. >> as the u.s. pulls out, there will be other players in the region who will rush in to fill the void, syria, saudi arabia, russia, iran. all of these countries will have a vested interest in moving in. when the u.s. moves out. >> reporter: now, mcgurk had planned to leave the administration in february.
7:14 am
he's now moved that up in protest. still no word who might replace general jim mattis as secretary of defense. meaning that the trump administration will have two major holes to fill in the new year in the global fight against terrorism. dan?ouuch toolics isorng t's brings chief white house correspondent jon karl who will be hosting "this week." jon's in d.c. jon, good morning. the resignations of mcgurk and mattis come on top of a government shutdown, a tanking stock market, and swirling investigations of pretty much almost every area of donald trump's life. it's adding to the media story line about a presidency going off the rails. we're seeing big stories in "the washington post" and "the new york times" this morning. my question to you is, haven't we heard this story before? what, if anything, is different this time? >> dan, you're right. we certainly have heard many times before major crisis, chaos in the west wing, disorder. staff shake-ups, all of that, but i've gotta tell you, this does feel different.
7:15 am
what you are seeing this time that i believe is different is you are seeing a parade of republican senators, many of whom have been consistently loyal to this president, backing him up at every turn, raising questions about his leadership, particularly on the decision to withdraw from syria, but also on i mean, vice president pence went to capitol hill onlod lunca then suddenly two days later you have the president shutting the government down. there is some real concern expressed, not just in the media here, but concern by some of the president's strongest allies or what have been the president's strongest allies on capitol hill. >> so that may be what's different this time. let's drill down meantime on this government shutdown. you've got the president's acting chief of staff mick mulvaney, a new hire on the show
7:16 am
this morning. the two sides seem to be digging in. how do you see this thing ending? >> this is a big interview. it's mulvaney's first interview since he was named acting chief of staff. he's also the budget director. he's also a former conservative member of the house, one of the founding members of the freedom caucus, somebody who has been in favor of government shutdowns in the past to push his point. i frankly don't see how this ends any time soon. democrats have made it clear they're in no mood to compromise on the wall. the white house led by mulvaney, as well as the president, seem to be prepared to set in for a long showdown with democrats. so it's unclear how this resolves. one idea that was interesting was on the pages of "the ayg pnt on coutri a shld willing to provide a hars er fund hisalp for the
7:17 am
maybe some grand compromise like that, but we're a long way from that happening. >> always great to see you, jon. thank you. notwithstanding the afore mentioned dysfunction. i want to remind everybody jon has a big show. he's going to go one on one with mick mulvaney. plus the power house round table debates another especially chaotic week in washington. it's all coming up on "this week." jon, thanks again. >> let's get a check of the forecast. rob marciano is here. no pressure, the christmas forecast is very important. >> i see what you're trying to do there. good morning again, guys. we have storms lining up in the pacific and doing a little bit of damage. let's get to washington state. there you go. birch bay up near the canadian border. they had a storm surge there with one of several systems beginning to roll in and do some damage to the ocean front
