"the miaubshg photos from a contractor taken just 36 hours before the
7:06 am
tragedy. the contractor telling the paper, there was standing water all over the parking garage, noting cracked concrete and severely corroded rebar under the pool. and overnight, "the wall street journal" publishing a letter it says was sent by the condo board's president in april warning that significant repairs were needed and that the building had deteriorated since that 2018 report saying, indeed the observable damage, such as in the garage, has gotten significantly worse since the initial inspection. when you can visually see the concrete cracking that means the rebar is rusting and deteriorating beneath the surface. now engineers looking at this disturbing video frame by frame showing the collapse. >> when i look at the video, i feel it looks like it starts from the bottom of the building and works its way up or a failure concentrated at the support of the bottom of the building. >> reporter: a structural engineer who studied the 9/11 pentagon attack has been hired by the city of surfside to inspect the collapse, but this will be a very long process.
7:07 am
that pile of rubble is also evidence and it will be transported to a warehouse for inspection. but keep in mind the focus right now, the priority is on search and rescue. michael? >> absolutely there, victor. what are you hearing about the sister buildings? >> reporter: michael, that same engineer that i just mentioned has also taken a look at the sister buildings, the north and east towers, and he told us that there was nothing that he saw that showed him that they were in imminent danger of collapse. no mandatory evacuations have been ordered but some residents have chosen to leave on their own. michael? >> victor oquendo, thank you so much. robin? now to the pandemic. a promising new study says the pfizer and moderna vaccines could provide protection from coronavirus for years. right now, 66% of eligible adults here in the u.s. have received at least one dose of the vaccine. eva pilgrim is at the vaccination site at the javits center here in new york. good morning, eva. > reporter: good morning, robin. really positive news about these two vaccines.
7:08 am
this study looked at two key factors, the type of immune response these vaccines produced, but also time. how long our body produced those responses and scientists say based on that information, it appears these vaccines hold up. this morning, another development in the fight against covid. a new study finding that the pfizer and moderna vaccines could offer significant protection that could last years. scientists calling it promising. >> the best case scenario this probably will last for the life of the person who successfully got immunization with two doses of the vaccine. >> reporter: the study published in the journal "nature" showed that mrna vaccines, like pfizer and moderna, produced high level of neutralizing antibodies and those important b cells that help support the immune system. but instead of peaking after a week or two, researchers found nearly four months later there was still a strong immune
7:09 am
response, essentially training the body long-term to fight off infection. the johnson & johnson covid vaccine was not considered in the study, this news coming amid concerns about the highly contagious delta variant now confirmed in 49 states. in l.a. county the largest county in the country officials are recommending all residents wear masks indoors to protect against the delta variant. and areas with low vaccination rates seeing the variant spreading rapidly. in missouri, the delta variant responsible for nearly 30% of the state's new cases. hospitalizations there are up 42% in the last month. and the variant still the wild card here. the scientists in that promising study say, yes, the vaccines hold up well right now but how they perform in the future really depends on how this virus mutates and those variants. robin? >> and eva, there is an unrelated new study out of the uk about mixing vaccines. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: that's right.
7:10 am
so this study looked at mixing pfizer and astrazeneca and it showed that mixing and matching the vaccine does work, but only applies in countries where astrazeneca has been approved. so not here in the united states, but this is a global pandemic, so this is really welcome news to countries struggling to get enough vaccine to vaccinate their population. robin? >> that's true. all right, eva, thank you. whit? now to heat waves and wildfires gaining strength in california. the extreme heat and ongoing drought fueling the flames there and forcing evacuations. let's get right to ginger for the latest. ginger, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. i'd love to give you some perspective here. two spots in washington state hit 118 degrees which ties their all-time hottest in the state. that's hotter than las vegas, nevada, has ever been.

7:12 am
whit. >> the summer just getting started. ginger, thanks so much. michael? >> thank you, whit. now to the violent crimes surging across the country. in california, the oakland police chief is sounding the alarm saying that crime in his city is, quote, out of control. matt gutman joins us now with an exclusive look inside the mounting pressures on the department. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, michael. murders and carjackings doubling over this time last year and sure enough less than 60 seconds into our ridealong with the oakland police there was a call about gun violence. now, the police chief has been to almost every single murder in his city this year visiting with officers and family and told me it was an epidemic. it was the 65th murder this year that seemed to break something in oakland's police chief on monday. >> saturday night i went out to a scene of a young man that lost his life and a lady yelled out the window, do something about it. >> reporter: it's the other epidemic spreading nationwide, surging violent crime.
7:13 am
in oakland, murder up 90% since last year. >> there's been a shooting. somebody is apparently down. >> stay with me. >> reporter: we were with oakland police that night racing to that very shooting. when we arrived, officers tending to the man on the ground. oakland's police chief arriving telling us that the victim had died. >> in a city of 425,000, 65 homicides. so far this year. how do you explain it? >> it's clear that violence is an epidemic in this community and people have too easily access to firearms and they are overly willing to use them. >> reporter: less than a minute into our ride along with lieutenant lisa ausmus -- >> they're chasing a suspect with a gun right now. >> reporter: the man leaving the gun at or near this park allegedly full of kids. on this saturday night ausmus was in charge of policing over 200,000 people with only 38 officers. >> we just don't have the resources to respond to the
7:14 am
calls. >> reporter: across the u.s., homicides in the first quarter already up by nearly 400 from last year, aggravated assault cases up by nearly 5,000. and just this weekend, a shooting in times square, after a dispute between street vendors, a stray bullet hitting a 21-year-old bystander and it's happening as departments are being defunded and they could lose 50 officers in the roughly 700-officer department. >> recruiting has been a challenge. retaining officers in a city this busy, in a city with this level of violence and under this much scrutiny. >> reporter: now, the chief and law enforcement experts say there is no single solution. it's not just about adding police and adding funding. they say they need community to agree on a shared goal and they need violence prevention measures. only the three of them together will work. michael? >> definitely need to find that balance.
7:15 am
matt, thank you. robin? now to our abc news exclusive with america's top general in afghanistan. the taliban is gaining ground as the u.s. military withdraws from the region. our chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz just back from that part of the world joins us now. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the withdrawal of u.s. troops in afghanistan after nearly 20 years should be complete in a matter of weeks, even with the taliban making those major gains. it is an extraordinary view of history. bagram airfield where countless air strikes were launched over the past two decades, where bin laden's body was taken for identification after that daring raid, today nearly abandoned with the final drawdown almost complete. >> the clear objective is not only a safe but orderly withdrawal. if there are attacks we certainly have the ability to respond to those. >> reporter: with the taliban ss ghan generalcottely aw risks. >> how concerned are you?
7:16 am
>> the loss of terrain has to be concerning. we're starting to create conditions here that doesn't -- won't look good for afghanistan in the future if there is a push for a military takeover. >> reporter: the u.s. invaded afghanistan because the taliban was harboring bin laden and al qaeda, but miller says the threat is still there. >> you have to pay attention to these groups and if you stop paying attention to them they'll oftentimes surprise you. >> reporter: general miller says the u.s. will keep an eye on afghanistan from afar but it is harder, says the general. he is also very mindful of what happened in iraq after the u.s. left when isis began sweeping through the country and u.s. troops were forced to return. robin? >> many are mindful of that. it's good to have you back, martha, thank you. whit? we want to switch gears and talk about the nba conference finals. the los angeles clippers keeping their dream alive beating the

black women find the balance between strength and vulnerability. dr. inger burnett iegler with her debut novel. good morning, doctor. >> good morning, michael. thank you so much for having me. >> thanks for being here. dr. ziegler. african-american women experience posttraumatic stress at a higher rate than other women. you say eight in ten have experienced some form of trauma. why is it important to bring attention to this? >> indeed. i wrote "nobody knows the trouble i've seen" because there are far too many black women experiencing emotional pain to trauma and not enough people paying attention. we're experiencing pain related to unresolved family trauma, the suffering that comes with the racism and discrimination that we encounter on a day-to-day basis, being denied opportunities that we know are
8:39 am
rightfully ours, and simply the pressure of having to do it all, carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders. we're holding this pain on the inside. we're holding it on the inside like a ticking time bomb but it's really eating away at us. it's causing emotional suffering, mental health problems, physical health problems. we know that stress and trauma are literally reducing the years of life of black women as black women have a lower life expectancy than white women. through this book, i wanted to raise awareness to that to show the other side of strong black women and provide that road map to healing to let black women know that there is healing and coping from all of the trauma that we've endured. >> dr. ziegler, sometimes people don't even recognize the symptoms of trauma within themselves. what are some of the warning signs? >> sure. you know, trauma can show up in so many different ways in different people and through the book i try to show the different ways that trauma can show itself.
8:40 am
it can be intense anxiety and worry about going out into the world, making it difficult to leave the home. making it difficult to trust in other people because we don't know who is going to cause us harm. we never know when the next bad thing is going to happen. it can be -- trauma can show up in our bodies, tightness and tension in the shoulders, shortness of breath, discomfort in our belly, shaking, stomachaches. signs of trauma can be depression, feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness because time after time after time bad things continue to happen to us. and so it can show up in a variety of different ways and i hope that through this book people can start to take a self-assessment and see how trauma might be showing up in their own lives. >> a big part of what you preach is self-care. what are everyday self-care practices that people could do?
8:41 am
>> self-care is so important, especially for black women who tend to deprioritize our own needs in service of others. and so to start, you know, we have to make ourselves a priority. our mental health, our physical health is urgent. we need to be well and the world needs us to be well. we have to practice forgiveness. there's so much shame and self-blame about the things that -- the unfair hand that life has dealt to us that we have to begin to let a lot of that go. in order to prioritize ourselves we have to set clear boundaries. we have to put ourselves first and that means -- often means saying no to other people. and most importantly we have to open ourselves up to the community of support that's around us. so often we keep our pain and suffering on the inside denying ourselves the people that are
8:42 am
there to support us, that are there to give us comfort in cheering us on. when we're vulnerable, when we let people know what we're going through, we open ourselves up to the love and support that is around us. >> dr. ziegler, thank you so much this morning. very important message and very important book. we really appreciate your time. >> thank you so much. >> all right, "nobody knws the trouble i've seen" is out today. now we got to ginger. hey, ginger. >> reporter: hey there, michael. leading up to "rise & shine," michigan, my home state tomorrow, my crew and i are fueling ourselves, breakfast, lunch and dinner with cherry pie because the national cherry festival happens here this weekend. while we have rain falling on our pie this morning, it will be so much better. we had a state of emergency on sunday here in the state of michigan because of all the water. we're going to get rid of that and send it to the east and have a nice weekend ahead so great news there. michigan, by the way, number one

8:48 am
did you ever imagine it reaching these heights and having the impact it has? >> you know, honestly making "pariah" was such a labor of love. i mean it took us like several years to raise the money for it. then it took us a year to edit it. honestly just getting the film across the finish line felt like the win and so, you know, our hope in making it was just that it would help people like see themselves differently and see the world differently and just, you know, have some idea of themselves as meaningful, you know, loving people in the world. so i had never imagined it going this far but i'm so glad it did. >> it has legs, baby. it has legs. it is still running and in this clip -- >> as an artist the highest honor is people still want to watch your film ten years later. the fact that with the

8:50 am
who not only knew who they were already, but weren't afraid to be that. this film is imagining who would i have been if i had known earlier. alika, she knows who she is, but doesn't know how to be that. it's transposing those ideas and that opening club scene honestly was my first experience going to a club where i was completely overwhelmed, head on a pivot looking everywhere. so i want the to bring that heart to the film and personal lived experience to it and try to give her the life of an artist also as, you know, a part of her identity. >> how was it when your family saw the film for the first time with you? >> so i remember the first time my parents saw the it was in tribecca. focus features did this screening in this tiny hotel. erly 20 seats so not a lot o
