7:02 am
is out, you see them up and down the east coast covering it all and ginger starts us off in times square. this is big one. the clipper that's moving on through, flurries now, it hit a wall if the atlantic and it's going to sit and spin. blizzard arngs all of the way up and down the east coast. advisories stretching from virginia up to maine. some of the heaviest snow is going to fall in boston. >> reporter: ginger look at this. this isn't snow, this is salt. this isn't snow. this is salt. look at this. 35,000 tons of it. it's going to take this and more to try to keep these roads clear. but it's not just boston that's preparing, much of the eastern third of the u.s. has already been impacted by this storm. overnight, highway whiteout.
7:03 am
stranded drivers in ohio feeling the first bitter blast of this likely historic blizzard. emergency personnel on the scene assisting this driver stuck in a ditch. this, after a weekend already full of dangerous winter weather. in massachusetts, at least three dozen spinouts. this tractor-trailer jackknifing. another overturning. and in baltimore four children rescued after plunging through a frozen pond, leaving two in critical condition. but all that, just a preview of what's still to come. the mayor of new york city warning don't underestimate this storm. >> prepare for something worse than we have seen before. >> reporter: as what could be the nastiest storm in years takes aim. more than 50 million americans bracing for the worst. >> just trying to get in the parking lot here was insane. >> reporter: a frenzy in this supermarket just outside boston. shelves at this shoprite new jersey stripped bare and at
7:04 am
trader joe's a 30-minute wait to get inside. salt trucks along the east coast out in full force, the storm expected to dump 30 inches in some areas with winds up to 60 miles an hour. and along the shoreline, coastal flooding. residents boarding up and hunkering down. >> we're using two by tens in order to protect all the glass. >> reporter: the east coast preparing for one monster of a storm. sunshine now trying to break through which is a thickening cloud cover. snow expected to arrive later this afternoon. it's been two years since they have gotten two feet of snow and at that time it brought this city to a standstill. the record here in boston is 27.5 inches. some spots outside the city could see three feet. and, robin, there's really no amount of salt that can melt three feet of snow. >> no. all right, rob. thank you. the storm already causing chaos for air travelers. thousands of flights cancelled today and tomorrow and that number will only increase. abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport.
7:05 am
good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning x robin. it's going be a mess out there if you want to fly, because these cancellations are going to ripple through the entire system. if you're in dallas, los angeles or chicago, you're feeling the effects of this storm as well. here's the problem, not only snow but wind. 35 miles an hour. gusts up to 50 miles an hour. that could make it very difficult for aircraft to land. it will be a problem not only today but tomorrow. hardest hit in the northeast is the regional carriers and jet jetblue. most have activated wavers. robin? >> the ripple effect as you said. explain why so many flights are being cancelled right now this early. >> well the robin, the airlines really want to get in front of
7:06 am
this. they want to don't anger their customers. they're going to have to cancel flights. let them stay home, rebook them, and once the storm passes, we'll get them to where they want to go is what they say. >> thank you so much. i'm booked on a 10:00 a.m. flight tomorrow to dallas. >> that ain't going to happen. >> we'll see. >> we will see. that is air travel. trains affected as well. amtrak getting ready right now. abc's linzie janis in philadelphia with more on that. >> good morning, george. as you can see the snow flurries already coming down now. as of right now, amtrak is running a normal service, it's monitoring forecast as the snowfall picks up throughout the day, people should check online for delays and cancellations, you can see the wind is picking up as well here amtrak has crews standing by to deal with any fallen trees. as for the roads, crews have been overnight treating them there has been some rain some snow now, already one accident
7:07 am
because roads are a little bit slick here. interstate 81 northbound temporarily caused because of a multivehicle crash, schools in the philadelphia area will be closeding at noon officials want to children home before the storm picks up. that's when they want people to stay off the roads. that's the message across the storm zone. the governors asking people to stay at home as the snowfall picks up. robin? >> all right, linzie, thank you so much. so much of the northeast being affected. back to ginger outside for more on the forecast -- oh, you're inside. >> i am. this is the part everybody is waiting to see. the actual snowfall, the wind, and i need to emphasize the timing. the worst of the storm happens late tonight through tuesday. so dent get too terribly what you'll see outside.
7:08 am
there will be light snow and from southwest to northeast it starts to increase numbers-wise. washington d.c., in the one to three. philly at the line between three and six and six to 12. i do think they'll see that half-foot. just to the east of them and certainly in coastal new jersey up through connecticut you'll see those numbers creeping from 12 to 18 and 18 to 24 plus, massachusetts on up. i do think there will be local spots seeing three feet or close to and that is what makes this a gigantic storm. wind as david was saying, a huge part of it. the wind gusts, let's take it through the timing here through tuesday. 67-mile-per-hour wind at montauk. nantucket, 53. boston in the 50s. these gusts could reach up to 80 miles per hour. you worry about the power lines and all the heavy snow with the branches coming down, and the timing of it, worst is overnight tonight through tomorrow. those tight bands could reach two to four-inch snowfall rates. and that's how you add up snow that quickly. it really starts overnight
7:09 am
tonight, the worst of it tomorrow and wednesday night we start to say good-bye. >> we're ready right now. breaking news, new security breach at the white house. a drone lands on the white house lawn. abc's pierre thomas in washington with the latest. good morning, pierre. >> good morning, george. we have just been told by law enforcement sources that this was a drone, a tiny aircraft that landed on the white house lawn. the sources say it was not weaponized and was immediately discovered. but make no mistake, this was a serious, serious issue. in the hours just before dawn, unusual commotion at the white house. secret service and emergency personnel descend on the north lawn, a device discovered. >> there's a device that has been recovered by the secret service at the white house. early indications that it does not pose any sort of ongoing threat to anybody at the white house. >> reporter: the president and first lady were not there, traveling on an visit to india. unclear whether the daughters were home. lots of questions this morning. how did the device get on the property? who put it there?
7:10 am
a key concern is that this device got on to the property in the first place and how do you prevent that from occurring? the secret service is in a middle of a security overhaul with leadership changes. add this to the list of disturbing items that will be studied. the fact that this drone was discovered in the middle of the night is raising eyebrows. among the things we want to know, did the device have a camera on it? was someone spying on the white house? robin? >> okay, pierre, thank you. the snow is not the only thing snarling traffic, a major concern, a troubling new trend, three flights forced to evacuate sunday because of threats made online. five flights in total. searched overthe weekend. abc's tom llamas has that story for us. >> reporter: overnight three planes evacuated at two major airline hubs. the fbi investigating an orlando-bound delta aircraft from los angeles diverted to dallas/ft. worth after receiving an internet
7:11 am
based threat, 179 passengers and 8 crew members forced off the plane to undergo inspection. >> it got scary. >> we knew what was going on. >> reporter: also sunday, two commercial planes evacuated and searched and more threats. all flights searched and all flights cleared. apparent hoaxes. >> we landed on the runway and immediately stopped and the captain came on the speaker and told us that there had been a threat specific to our own flight. >> reporter: all this after two flights, one delta and one southwest, searched on saturday following a series of threatening messages on social media. two f-16 fighters scrambled and atlanta's international airport nearly shut down. >> you can look out the window and see people with machine guns and bomb-sniffing dogs. >> reporter: on saturday, a message on twitter. someone tweeting at delta assist, "i have a bomb on one of your planes but i forgot which one when i left the airport, can
7:12 am
you help me find it." these threats are invariably hoaxes and real terrorists don't typically give a heads-up. now the fbi is looking into the threats. at last check, still no arrests. though these are so far all hoaxes, nothing is funny about the prison time. if convicted, up to 29 years behind bars. >> nothing funny about it at all. >> thank you, tom. we're going to go to politics, gop hopefuls squaring off last night in california organized by the conservative billionaire koch brothers. what has been a closed door showcase for candidates and our jon karl was the moderator. you got sparks flying on foreign policy. >> reporter: that's right, george. this will be a defining battle in the republican primary. there are stark differences between these candidates on foreign policy. this was especially true with iran with senator rand paul did fending president's effort. >> i do think diplomacy is better than war and we should give it a chance.
7:13 am
>> this is the worst negotiation in the history of mankind. >> what are we going to do? are you ready to send ground troops into iran? are you ready to send 100,000 troops? >> do you want to bomb iran? >> nothing should ever be off the table. >> reporter: and senator paul defended the president, said he would support him in blocking sanctions, voting against new sanctions against iran right now. >> jon, any sense of what kind of role the brothers want to play throughout the 2016 race that they might pick a candidate? >> reporter: they're trying to at least narrow the field down to somebody who believes in their rather libertarian views. i think they want to play a role. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. let's go to the other top stories. good morning, george. we begin with a video just coming in from a dramatic rescue at sea. the coast guard rescuing four people, including an infant, in a small plane that landed in the waters off of hawaii.
7:14 am
250 feet off maui. the pilot got into a raft. he's okay. also on sunday a plane carrying four people including an infant rescued. some terrifying moments inside a home depot here in new york. the store packed with shoppers stocking up for the blizzard when gunfire erupted. police say a store worker shot his supervisor to death before turning the gun on himself. witnesses say that the two men had been arguing, screaming shoppers ran for the exits but no one else was injured. a grand display today, as president obama became the first american leader honored as chief guest at india's republican day celebration. the festivities marked the birth of the world's largest democracy and the president and indian prime minister announcing new deals on defense and nuclear energy. also this morning, president obama promising tougher action in ukraine. amid the worst violence in
7:15 am
months. darkcam video shows one rocket attack killing at least 30 people. ukraine's president says he hopes to revive the peace process. and back here at home, finally, it didn't take long for police in houston to catch a suspected burglar. and here's why. as he was being led out of a family dollar store, just moments earlier he fell into their arms. because of some bad timing on his part. good timing for police. police say he had been trying to break in through the ceiling. when police were just coming in to see what was going on he fell through the ceiling into their arms. there he is lying on the ground shortly arrested. he just had to put his arms behind his back, guys, he was in the perfect position. he was already down. >> we haven't had one of those in a while. >> good one, right? >> it was. >> as soon as we see a story like that we know it's going into the file. >> dumb criminal file. >> thank you, amy.
7:16 am

>> it's real simple -- >> reporter: brady posting this patriots video sunday intending to get fans pumped for the game. writing, who's with us? >> being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. >> reporter: but notably missing any mention of football air pressure. belichick defiantly defending his team, maintaining they did nothing wrong. >> we followed the rules of the game to the letter. >> reporter: his explanation for those deflated footballs, climate condition. >> air pressure is a function of the atmospheric conditions. there is variance there. >> reporter: twitter erupting, calling him bill belichick, the science guy. but the real science guy bill nye refuting his explanation. >> to really change the pressure you need one of these, the inflation needle. >> reporter: the supersized controversy even making its way into "saturday night live's" spotlight. >> all i know is is that a
