throwing out greg booird at home off of an infield ball. >> what a play by bregman. >> reporter: but it was jose altuve, who hit a monster shot in the fifth, that got things rolling for the astros. >> good-bye! 2-0, altuve. >> reporter: setting the stage for brian mccann. who delivers for the astros with a base-clearing double. to put them up 4-0. >> 4-0, houston! >> reporter: a one-sided show for the fans of houston last night. as their boys move on to the big dance in search of their first major league championship. >> we have the patch on the jersey that says houston strong. this is for y'all. >> reporter: but not before stopping to pop those bottles of champagne and celebrate the "w." and there are those ski masks that is the preferred line of defense for champagne in the eyes. or the beecooper's outfit. astros going to the world series. and we see ron, we see rob.

and two children. and overnight, a rare and historic tableau. the five living former presidents making a joint appearance at a concert for hurricane relief. president trump appeared via video. it was what he tweeted during the concert that is raising eyebrows this morning. >> indeed. kenneth moton was at the concert. he starts us off here from college station, texas, this morning. kenneth, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan and cecilia. not far from the george h.w. bush presidential library here. five ex-presidents in one room. they didn't mention the man who currently has their old job by name. but president trump still took part in the night in a prerecorded message and on twitter. in this current bitter and partisan political climate, a rare and historic sight of unity. the five living former u.s. presidents side by side at the one america appeal concert, to help millions affected by the catastrophic hurricane season. presidents obama, clinton, bush 43, bush 41, and carter, hosting
george h.w. bush back home in texas. a rare public appearance for the 93-year-old who had a couple of health scares earlier this year. >> i want to thank president george w. bush. and most of all, president george h.w. bush. we are so proud to be with him today. ♪ >> reporter: a fun night for the serious mission. the former presidents spotted grooving to the beat. surprise guest, lady gaga. ♪ given me a million reasons give me a million reasons ♪ >> reporter: and a long list of music stars also lent their voices. five former presidents joined forces after harvey hit texas after irma slammed into florida and maria devastated the u.s. virgin islands and puerto rico, the work continues. former president bill clinton made this comment about the current state of politics. >> if we just do what we ought to do, and prove that the heart of america, without regard to
race or religion, or political party, is greater than our problems. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: president trump made an appearance to thank his predecessors. >> together, we will recover. we will rebuild. and we will come back stronger and better than ever before. >> reporter: trump praised the ex-presidents in that video. but during this unity event, different words from the president, who tweeted -- perhaps no administration has done more in its first nine months than this administration. we should mention before this concert, the effort by the former presidents had already raised $31 million for hurricane victims. dan and cecilia? >> boy, the looks on the presidents' faces behind clinton as he was speaking. >> it was are remarkable. thank you. the other headline out of washington this morning. the president's announcement, delivered via tweet, that he'll allow the declassification of secret case files about the assassination of president kennedy.
thousands of pages may reveal. abc's david wright is on that story from the white house. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan and cecilia. this is a day that conspiracy theorists have been waiting a lifetime for. the final batch of documents related to the jfk assassination about 3,000 pages in all. the president now says he's inclined to release them. and only he can make that decision. at a moment when his administration is getting raked over the coals over the attack in niger, embroiled in a debate over how best to console gold star families, president trump tweeted this weekend about -- jfk? and, the mother of all conspiracy theories. >> president kennedy has been shot in dallas, texas. >> reporter: november 22, 1963. all these years later, how
sure. enter president trump. on twitter this weekend. subject to the receipt of further information, i will be allowing, as president, the long-blocked and classified jfk files to be opened. >> the president is releasing the documents. even though the intelligence community would rather he not. the president enjoys stirring up controversy. and this will definitely stir up nationwide controversy. >> reporter: what we're talking about here is roughly 3,000 pages of secret documents. mostly cia and fbi case files. trump's friend and sometime political adviser roger stone has his own conspiracy theory why trump should release the documents. >> they're likely to show that lee harvey oswald was trained, nurtured, and put in place by the central intelligence agency. >> reporter: raw case files could breathe new life into all sorts of conspiracy theories. >> just because something is
report doesn't mean it's true. therefore, citizens looking at these files, could easily be confused and come to the conclusion that president kennedy was killed by the russians, or the cubans, or the american mafia. because some intelligence report in the file says that. but it may not be true. >> reporter: all of this was set in motion decades ago. back in 1992, congress passed a law that required the national archives to release all of the kennedy-related documents by this year. that deadline expires this week. october 26th. so the notion that the president trump -- the 45th president is controlling the timing of all this, that, too, may be a conspiracy theory. >> and those theories not expected to be put to bed after the release of these documents. but i want to talk about one other headline out this morning. this one about the russia investigation. with the president's aides facing mounting legal fees, the
offering to foot the bill? >> reporter: that's right. this was broken by axios. the president promising $430,000 of his own money to help defray the legal costs for campaign associates. now, $430,000 happens to be the amount that the rnc has already paid for the president's lawyers and don jr.'s. so, make of that what you will. >> a lot of nervous aides in the white house. thank you. i want to bring in abc's martha raddatz who is hosting "this week" a little bit later. good morning. >> good morning. >> what a week it was in the white house. orm.ident trump ignited the fire when he falsely claimed past presidents did not call the families of fallen soldiers. you've been covering this. the white house is hoping the briefing room appearance by chief of staff john kelly puts this to bed. do you think this is the end of all of this?
that, too, cecilia. i don't think it is. i think john kelly who gave such an emotional and powerful answer, he, of course, lost his son in afghanistan. very moving. very emotional. but then he went on to criticize congresswoman wilson, saying he couldn't believe she was listening to that call. saying she talked about raising money at a dedication of a memorial in florida. and that turned out to be wrong. so i don't think this controversy goes away. as you know, cecilia, very well, john kelly, general kelly, is seen as a steadying force in the white house. nonpartisan. this is the most political anyone has seen him thus far. >> let's talk about the situation in north korea. you spent the past week on the "uss reagan" aircraft carrier which is in the region. polls show americans are worried about the potential of war. after what you experienced this week, how close do you think we are? >> i think everyone should worry about it.
jong-un and president trump. it truly is a very real war of words. on that aircraft carrier, they were doing exercises this week. the marine corps also doing exercises with the f-35. they're prepared for anything. as one pilot said, we're ready to fight tonight. nobody wants to. but truly, no one has any idea what will happen at this point. they're prepared. and we'll show you all about that. >> a huge story. we're looking forward to hearing much more from you. thank you, martha. she has a big show coming up on this sunday morning. one on one with the former cia director general david petraeus. and the exclusive look at u.s. military preparations near north korea. from the aircraft carrier there. all coming up on "this week." later this morning. and we do have one other related programming note. senator john mccain who has made a lot of news of late, will be a guest of "the view" tomorrow. at 11:00 eastern. we turn now to tampa, florida, where the manhunt is intensifying for a killer who has nosh
>> police are going door to door. abc's victor oquendo has been following this story. good morning to you, victor. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia and dan. that neighborhood is in shock. police have the area blanketed. they don't want the residents to feel like they're being held hostage by whoever is doing this. but they need them to be aware of their surroundings. police going door to door in a tampa neighborhood checking on residents. as they search for a killer. looking through yards and trash cans. three people murdered in a span of 11 days. the community on edge. the families of the victims in mourning. >> our family never going to be the same again. >> reporter: this memorial for 20-year-old anthony naboa. the most recent victim, killed last thursday. >> happy child. loving. everybody loved him. family-oriented. >> reporter: naiboa had autism. police say he got on the wrong bus on the way home from work. he was walking to another bus st
>> it wasn't even 20 minutes that i spoke to him. he told me, yes, i'll be home. he was not home. >> reporter: not far from where 22-year-old benjamin mitchell was killed in front of his home on october 9th. and just a half mile from there, monica hoffa was found dead. >> monica did nothing that should have put herself in this situation. she was completely innocent. and was targeted by this animal out there. >> reporter: right now, the only lead is this grainy video of a person wearing a hoodie walking a neighborhood street. police not even calling them a suspect but someone they would like to speak with. >> if you're walking alone, you're either a suspect or you're a potential victim. that's what they need to remember in this neighborhood. >> reporter: a motive has not been determined. the three victims had no connection. police believe the killings are linked because of the proximity to each other. police now encouraging everyone to keep their porch lights on. they're handing out extra lightbulbs.
the reward for any information that leads to an arrest has gone up to $25,000. cecilia? dan? >> increasing that reward. a horrifying story. victor, thank you. let's check the forecast. a lot going on in the weather department. rob is tracking severe weather and a big heat wave. hey, rob. >> dan, this line of storms came through oklahoma last night. 50 reports of severe weather including three-inch hail. 60-plus mile an hour winds. five reported tornadoes. there's damage through norman. one hitting the river wynn casino. the beach boys were having a concert. even the governor was there. so much damage that the rain was coming through the casino. heavy rain into louisiana. there's a video of one of the tornadoes cruising through oklahoma. right now, the rain is increasing along this line. less tornadic. heavy rain across east louisiana. out ahead of this. tornado warnings out this morning. the heat is building across the southwest. the santa ana winds crank up in

closer look at this case that has fascinated so many for so long. hey, david. >> reporter: good morning, again, cecilia and dan. it's unlikely these documents will offer definitive answers. they may give new life to the conspiracy theories. offering thousands of new data points on questions that have lingered for years. like the eternal flame at john f. kennedy's grave at arlington national cemetery, a few questions have burned since november of 1963. was lee harvey oswald acting alone? was the cia, the kgb, or the mafia pulling the strings? after more than half a century, there's still no easy answer. >> the release of these documents, thousands of documents, is going to just add a massive amount of information on this subject. >> reporter: amateur sleuths have pored over abraham zapruder's 26.6 seconds of film from dealey plaza,

documents may end up staying under wraps. in some ways, it's no surprise that 45th president, who has feuded with the intelligence agencies and the fbi director, should release these files about the 35th president. dan and cecilia? let's get over to rob, yet again. >> we can't get aw wway from th dan. the world series, game one, tuesday. chavez ravine. 96 degrees or higher at game time. 5:00 pacific time. north winds blowing in out of left field. could be one of the hottest game ones on record. here's the storm that created severe weather last night. still has punch to it. making its way across the tennessee and mississippi river valleys today. some significant rainfall.
