8:04 am
you can tell by the incline of the slope, plus the conditions we work in, obviously smoky, hot, low humidity. this is the meat and potatoes of firefighting. >> reporter: the flames claiming the lives of at least 35 people, hundreds more missing and so many now homeless like michael clemons, a local firefighter. >> more than anything i wanted to get my family out and that's all i cared about. >> reporter: 40 active firefighters lost their homes in these fires. this was mike clemons' home. he says all he had time to do is grab his cell phone, wallet and family and get out. he looked out the window and saw orange flames. this is what is left of 34,000 square feet and four bedrooms, a metal garage door frame with what he says was a brand-new car there parked in the garage. the entire neighborhood looks like this. total destruction. at least 5% of homes here in santa rosa wiped out. and the damage estimate, dan and
8:05 am
paula, more than $1.2 billion and this crisis isn't over yet. >> those visuals are just so haunting, linzie janis, thank you for your reporting. >> the power of the inferno. >> absolutely. as mentioned the conditions are not favorable for fighting those fires today. >> so let's get it over to rob who is tracking it all. hey, rob. >> good morning, guys. we are looking at for a setup similar to last week and have seen winds gusting over 50 miles an hour across mt. diablo so those diablo winds will be blowing. we've got red flag warnings. it's a statewide event but we begin with northern california where winds are to the critical criteria and shift it to southern california as we go through later today and tonight. 24-mile-per-hour winds there in santa rosa, napa valley, higher elevations, concerned about that area as we go through the afternoon and tonight through tomorrow morning, so-cal the main threat. a severe weather threat across the rest of the country in just a few minutes. dan and paula. now to the developing story about president trump and your health care.
8:06 am
millions of americans bracing for changes to their health plans this morning. >> the president taking a major swing at the affordable care act with the swipe of a pen and abc's david wright joins us from the white house with more on this executive order and what it all means. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula and dan. some big changes ahead but the president says he's ready to make a deal. overnight he tweeted that obamacare is causing grief and tragedy for so many. he urged democrats to get smart and deal while republicans have already tried and failed to repeal and replace obamacare, so the president is trying to force congress to act. even as he dealt what could be a fatal blow to the affordable care act, president trump insisted he's ready to make a deal. and not just with the republicans. >> the democrats should come to me. i would even go to them because i'm only interested in one thing, getting great health care for this country. >> reporter: but for now democrats don't buy it. >> make no mistake, last night
8:07 am
the president single-handedly decided to raise america's health premiums for no reason except spite and cruelty. >> reporter: what trump did was end $7 billion in obamacare subsidies to insurance companies, payments designed to help them discount prices for low-income customers. a federal judge ruled last year that the subsidies were illegal because the obama administration authorized them without an appropriation from congress. >> that money is a subsidy for insurance companies. take a look at their stock, look where they are. they're going through the roof. >> reporter: now insurance premiums are likely to go through the roof to make up the difference, jumping by as much as 20% according to the nonpartisan congressional budget office. middle class customers like marcie shelton, a retiree in nevada, would likely feel the brunt of this.
8:08 am
>> if it gets too high, i'm afraid i won't be able to afford it at all and that's terrifying. >> reporter: but the poorest americans would have some protection because of other provisions in obamacare. the taxpayers would still be on the hook to make up the difference for them, which according to the cbo could add nearly $20 billion a year to the federal deficit. >> we are going to have great health care in our country. we're taking a little different route than we had hoped. >> reporter: now, a bipartisan group of lawmakers have a bill that would restore those subsidies. they say they have the votes to pass it. two problems, though, not clear if it's ever going to get up for a vote and not clear if the president would sign it. dan and paula. >> i think the president said it best. they're taking a little bit of a different route. david, thanks for your reporting from the white house. and coming up in our next half hour, we know so many of you have questions about what's going on with your health care and we'll answer those questions and help you navigate the complex and ever changing new health care environment. >> that's coming up. we turn to another
8:09 am
controversial move from the president. threatening to leave the iran nuclear deal. >> iran's president, however, is hitting back saying the u.s. is isolated in its opposition to the agreement, and abc's gloria riviera is in washington for us this morning. good morning to you, gloria. >> reporter: good morning, paula. congress now has 60 days to demand more from iran, but there's been no indication yet iran is even open to renegotiation. one former state department official described trump's about-face to me as a huge hit to america's reputation of upholding its commitments calling that the only true currency in international relations. this morning a chorus of grave concern from the united states major allies around the world after president trump declared he will terminate the nuclear deal with iran if congress doesn't toughen it up. >> the iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the united states has ever entered into. >> reporter: secretary of state rex tillerson who reportedly fought against the president's efforts to decertify
8:10 am
iran's compliance said friday he believes u.s. partners in the deals will get on board. >> i fully expect that our allies and friends in europe and in the region are going to be very supportive in efforts undertaken to deal with iran's threats. >> reporter: but many of the country's biggest allies are defending the de, the ux, france and germany saying they are committed to the full implementation of the nuclear agreement in their shared interests. in the middle east praise from iran's frequent sparring partner israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> i congratulate president trump for his courageous decision today. he boldly confronted iran's terrorist regime. >> reporter: trump wants the deal expanded to restrict iran's ballistic missile program in support of terror. >> the iranian regime continues to feel conflict, terror and turmoil throughout the middle east and beyond. >> reporter: but those elements were never part of the agreement negotiated by multiple countries over years.
8:11 am
iranian president hassan rouhani had this warning should the u.s. change course. "if other parties do not fulfill their promises, we will not hesitate for even one moment and will respond." and this morning another country weighing in, russia saying it deeply regrets trump's decision. dan, paula. >> gloria, thank you. let's go to austin, texas, now and abc news political consultant matthew dowd. hey, matthew, good morning. >> good morning. >> so let's start with what the president has just done on the iranian nuclear deal. where does this leave us and what in your view is the impact on our national security? >> well, dan, i think it's exceedingly problematic. as you know, there's seven countries that were part of this accord. six of the countries are opposed to what donald trump just did including the ux, china, russia and germany. so i think it sets us up in a position just like after the pulling out of the paris climate accord where we are on the outs of the international community and this was the first time we actually ever had an agreement with iran to at least slow down their nuclear development, very problematic for this president
8:12 am
and it's going to be very hard for him to get what he wants out of this congress. >> he seems in terms of health care to be kind of punting to congress as well. we know that obamacare was expected to really implode on its own, but now this is just accelerating the process and now, matt, he's being sued by nearly 20 states because he wants to stop these subsidies so what could the political risks here be for the president? >> well, you know, this is like having a car that's got problems in it that's got malfunctions in it and then you puncture the tires and put sugar in the gas tank and say, help me fix the car that i just am breaking. it's a huge problem in this. he now owns health care. it is no longer obamacare. donald trump owns health care and from a political perspective, he's in a real big problem. he's holding hostage as talked about earlier in the show millions of people and their premiums and their care in order to accomplish something politically and the other thing about this is keep in mind, president obama, obamacare, the
8:13 am
paris climate accord and the iran nuclear agreement are all more popular than president trump is in america today. >> yeah, with one swipe of the pen, as you said, he now owns health care. matt, thanks for your insight and analysis from austin this morning for us. >> great to be here. we do want to turn to a developing story overnight. the american mother and her family held hostage by the taliban for five years, they landed in canada and are now sharing horror stories. >> abc's brian ross has more on what the family is revealing what happened to them in their life in captivity. >> reporter: the horror details of their captivity are emerging this morning as the freed hostage family arrived overnight in toronto just 48 hours after being freed. seething with anger, joshua boyle recounted how his wife and three children were treated including a reference to an infant child killed by their captors, a taliban group run by the notorious haqqani family network. >> the stupidity and the evil of the haqqani networks kidnapping of a pilgrim and his heavily pregnant wife was eclipsed only
8:14 am
by the stupidity and evil of authorizing the murder of my infant daughter martyr boyle. >> reporter: boyle, a canadian national, spoke alone confirming the rape of his wife, american caitlin coleman, echoing an account she revealed on a taliban hostage tape during her captivity. >> my children have seen their mother defiled. >> not as a lone action by one guard but assisted by the captain of the guard and supervised by the commandant. >> reporter: caitlin coleman was seven months pregnant when she and her husband were kidnapped while on what they called a hiking vacation in afghanistan. as a hostage, she gave birth to three children who became america's littlest hostages. her father jim coleman of stewartstown, pennsylvania, told abc news he is still angry with his daughter's husband for taking her to afghanistan in the first place. >> what i can say is, you know, taking your pregnant wife to a very dangerous place, to me and the kind of person that i am, it's unconscionable.
8:15 am
>> reporter: boyle had refused to allow his family to fly on an american military aircraft after they were freed and insisted they return home to canada, not the u.s. >> obviously it will be of incredible importance to my family that we are able to build a secure sanctuary for our three surviving children to call a home. >> reporter: brian ross, abc news, new york. >> that's just a horrifying story. our thanks to brian ross. we move to the new information coming out about that shooting in las vegas. >> we're learning about a terrifying new target for the gunman as well as the time line of the deadliest mass shooting in america. abc's erielle reshef has more. >> excuse me for my emotion. >> reporter: a visibly shaken las vegas sheriff revealing a new time line nearly two weeks after the deadliest mass shooting in modern american history. >> my intent today is to provide some clarification on some outstanding issues out there in the public forum. >> reporter: correcting information given earlier this week saying hotel security
8:16 am
officer jesus campos was shot had 9:59. six minutes before stephen paddock began his initial assault from the mandalay bay's 32nd floor. the hotel's parent company disputing this time gap. >> i am very well aware of the mgm statement provided yesterday. i agree with their statement. >> reporter: now las vegas authorities agreeing at 10:05 p.m. shot campos and seconds later unleashed his hail of gunfire on the crowd below. >> he attempted to relay that via his radio and it was confirmed because he also relayed that information via his cell phone. >> reporter: for ten minutes between 10:05 and 10:15 hundreds of bullets raining down on unsuspecting concertgoers. >> breach, breach. >> reporter: by 10:17, officers arrived on the 32nd floor determining the shooting had ceased. and the sheriff with another stunning disclosure. during those ten minutes of terror the suspect turning his fire on these fuel tanks at

nearby mccarron airport and paddock also deliberately targeting first responders as they rushed to the scene. raw emotion as the sheriff spoke of their heroism and of officer brady cook. >> brady sustained a substantial wound to his shoulder, through his bicep, into his chest and out his back. and the reason why i bring this one up, he asked me if he could go back to work today. >> so many heroes that night, 58 people died in that attack. the sheriff says 45 are still in the hospital. some of them in critical condition. the fbi so far has found no ties between the gunman and any extremist groups. still no clear motive, but investigators do believe he acted alone. >> can you imagine if he had been able to hit those gas tanks. >> it could have been catastrophic. >> erielle, thank you very much. as we said, it's been a busy morning in the weather department, so let's kick it back over to rob. what's happening? >> we start off with the california fires. i have an interesting piece of

welcome back. health care is about to change for millions of americans after congress failed to pass a repeal of the affordable care act. president trump took matters into his own hands. he's ending payments that help working class families afford health care tweeting very proud of my executive order which will allow greatly expanded access and far lower costs for health care for millions of people -- sorry, millions of people benefit. sara collins from the commonwealth club is here to explain what the changes mean for you, your family and your wallet. thanks for joining us. who exactly will be affected by what the president has done here? >> there are about 18 million people who currently buy their insurance coverage through the

affordable care act marketplace or from insurance companies, these are self-employed people working families, people who are retired but not yet aged 65, but what people really need to understand is that nothing changes right now. so your coverage is good until the end of the year, your premiums are locked in. in 2018 premiums are definitely going to go up because of this change, but most people get help paying their premiums from the federal government so they're not going to see big increases. some people in some states who are not getting this help from the federal government may see their premiums go up but it's going to vary a lot state to state but 2019 is when we really are going to see some problems. we could see millions of people going to save $7 billion by not making these payments to insurance companies. but you say that this ultimately could end up costing the government more than that? >> that's right. because if insurance companies don't get these payments, they have to raise their premiums in order to cover the loss of that money.
