8:05 am
the subway station. 250 other people were wounded. isis has now claimed responsibility for those attacks. and here is a look at the memorial in brussels, where a large crowd has gathered to remember the lives lost. among the victims a peruvian mother of 3-year-old twins, who was traveling to new york to visit her own mother. well, we are also learning at least nine americans were also injured, including a u.s. missionary who survived the boston marathon bombings back in 2013. that is the very latest. ryan and amy, back to you. >> ryan: can you imagining about involved in both of those? >> amy. no it's bizarre really if you think about it. what are the odds. >> ryan: of course, the attacks coming as many americans are getting set to travel for spring break. >> amy: it makes people nervous, as you can understand. the state department has issued warnings if you're planning to fly and fox 35's jackie orozco is joining us live. she's at orlando international this morning, where it is a busy morning. good morning, jackie. >> reporter: it sure is, guys.
8:06 am
break, a lot of families traveling and going to europe. i was telling them about that new travel warning. they hadn't heard about it. but still not going to deter them interest -- them from traveling. we have seen a lot of t.s.a. agents and undercover agents here as well, just monitoring things. now the u.s. state department issued this travel warning, because they say terrorist groups are planning events. now back here at o.i.a. the airport is enhancing security measures in response to the attacks in brussels. some changes are visible as nor k-9s and police officers in uniforms, passengers will not see all of the extra measures put into place. now again we spoke with several folks here traveling out of o.i.a. and they welcome the extra security and are not afraid to travel in europe. so let's take a listen. >> you do have to live your life
8:07 am
in like a little animal. >> reporter: and they have also said that they are going to be more vigilant, you know, keeping all of this fresh in their minds. back at the u.s. state department, they want americans to be vigilant when they're out traveling, especially in europe. for now reporting live at o.i.a. jackie orozco, fox 35 news. >> ryan: remember to keep to fox 35 for the very latest on the brussels terror attack. you can find any updates as well online, instantly and a lot of political news this morning. in fact, breaking news on the campaign trail involving former florida jeb bush. guy. >> amy: this is according to politico this morning. the endorsement comes after cruz utah. here are the new numbers. cruz taking all 40 of the delegates from utah, but donald trump took arizona. he won all 58 delegates there. things, bernie sanders picked those up. the biggest contest of the night
8:08 am
clinton took all 58 of the delegates there. sanders won both the idaho and utah caucuses. >> ryan: new from overnight, a truck carrying beer crashing into truck that was carrying snacks on i-95. sky fox flew over the scene just a few hours ago. what you can't see is the mess down there. the southbound lanes were shut down for a while, but they are open now. according to f.h.p., the driver of the beer truck tried to move into the center lane and swerved to avoid hitting another car and hit the frito lay snack truck. beer the beer truck driver, by the way, was ticketed. 9 good news no one was injured in the dip. >> amy: we know what led up to the shooting of a nan in maitland. this happened about 10:30 at the extended stay on pembroke drive. the man was sitting inside his car when he was shot multiple times. the victim then sped off to this nearby 7-eleven. that's where he called for help.
8:09 am
up to his car, pointed a gun at him and fired three shots. police believe that some sort of argument led up to it and that the victim and the suspect do know each other. police are still searching for the person who did it. >> ryan: a new batch of supplies is on its way to the international space station. >> three, two, and liftoff of the atlas five rocket. >> ryan: 11:00 last night. the aircraft did launch last night. 8,000 pounds of cargo. this all headed to the international space station. when astronauts are done unloading it, the spacecraft will be in phase two of the trip, it will separate and a large-scale fire will ignite inside. they'll do that on purpose, to see how fire behaves in microgravity and it will burn up in the atmosphere. so kind of cool science there. we have a few weeks left to file your taxes. don't feel bad if you're like me and can't started yet.
8:10 am
avoid the top tax scams that are out there. plus, david martin. viewers are reacting to the fact that i have never, ever tried beef jerky. be shocked how many other people are with me? >> reporter: turning on you? because i'm going to turn you. you've never had beef jerky, amy, you're crazy. you're nuts. i have a place for you. more than 200 varieties of beef jerky. we'll take you to the one place that sells it, only at the beef jerky outlet. 6 dunkin' donuts for $4.49,

8:13 am
>> ryan: well, the countdown is on. don't panic. still a couple of weeks left, at least that's my mentality. >> amy: it will take three hours to get his done. less than a month away and there are a lot of questions out there when it comes to avoiding scams with your taxes. steve steve is joining us live in dallas this morning with answers to many of those questions. steve, i'm assuming you had yours done on day one. >> reporter: come on. come on. i'm like foaming at the mouth waiting for the w-2 in the mail. are you kidding me? day one. day one. look, here's why folks. the best defense against tax scams is doing it as early as possible. once your taxes are filed, it eliminates the opportunity for somebody else to file them fraudulently on your behalf.
8:14 am
time as short as possible, so if i get them done february 1st, guess what, now nobody can try and file them for me. you wait until, you know, now, ahem, and they've had all of this time. all right. first, look, i don't think i can afford a c.p.a. i need more help that the d.i.y., kit could give me. the key in that sentence is professional. all you need is a couple of chairs and a folding table, you got yourself a tax office. there is very little oversight here. and a 74,000 page tax code. so, look, i really would encourage anybody to go and actually price out what a c.p.a., might cost you. often times it is much les444444444444 expensive than lot of these messes people bring to me come april, may, june. oh, my gosh, i have spent $1,000 on my tax preparer because i got ripped off. a couple hundred bucks is a certified c.p.a. look, at the end of the day, the thing that i like about that, is
8:15 am
couple of months, even next year, my c.p.a., is still going to be in the same office. so if i have any tax questions, if i get audited in some way, i can still visit the same person, who prepared my taxes, plus because we have a great relationship over the years, he knows what kind of questions to ask me about my personal life, any changes there may have been, which might benefit me tax-wise. >> amy: okay. so, steve, next question. is it okay to allow a company to take possession of your refund and then send you the balance once they take your fee out? are you being too trusting to do that? >> reporter: you know, based on the number of people who do that, and then write to me, you would think it's a-ok. but i'll tell you what, those letters are never because they're happy with their decision. do not ever let anybody direct deposit your money into anything other than your account. look, i know that it sounds like a great proposition. it's no money out of pocket, you think you're going to save all of this cash. but nine times out of ten, it's
8:16 am
from the viewers, that all of a sudden their fee triples and they sent you what was left over. they never sent you a check. they lied aboutest -- lied about getting your check. you go ahead and distribute it out the way you should. real quick before we go. i want to talk about extensions. a lot of folks ask how easy to get an extension. all you have to do is fill out the form, but beware. this is not an extension to pay, only an extension to file. so if you're looking to do this because you think you want an extension to pay the tax bill, you're sadly mistaken. here's the problem. a lot of folks think it's an extext to pay, they hit hit with fees and all kinds of penalties. you will still have to estimate what the tax burden, write the check to uncle sam by april 15th. at that point, you might as well get it done. you can go to itunes for my pod cast. >> amy: good stuff.
8:17 am
we appreciate you. we'll talk to you later. all right. let's check in with brooks and see how things are looking weather-wise. >> brooks: good morning, amy. good morning, everybody. it's going to be a sunny day today. temperatures back close to normal. the last couple of days it's been chilly. the high temperatures today near 80. temperatures in the 50s through much of central florida. a little cooler north and west. but by the 9:00 hour, i think everybody will be about 5, 10 degrees warmer than where we are right now. over the next 36 hours, the humidity really begins to winds. and then this weekend it won't be a washout. but we have enhanced clouds and rain as we go through the weekend, maybe some thunderstorms with warm, humid conditions returning. el nino remaining strong and that's going to help accentuate the rainfall this weekend. outside right now, here's our view from orlando.
8:18 am
can't wait until the big tournament this summer. that should be impressive, with brazil coming into town. temperatures right now 57 in brevard county. 51 at the world center of speed. north and west temperatures in the 40s. but everybody warmer than this time yesterday. around the southeast there's no cold air. look at that. it's warmer right now in oklahoma city and omaha than it is in orlando. that warmth will continue to move east, it will continue to see our atmosphere moisten up. start to feel really good. and then we're going to see some rain coming into play. so here we go. today we stay dry. showers tomorrow. but by friday this little frontal boundary very weak. it's going to wash out across central florida. friday, saturday, sunday it will serve as the focus mechanism for rain. here we go. accuweather seven-day forecast. 81 degrees on wednesday. as we go through thursday, friday, saturday, sunday high
8:19 am
upper 80s. but right now solid chance of rain friday, saturday, and sunday. not a washout. just quite unsettled. let's get a check on the morning drive. hey, kristin. >> reporter: hello, good morning. we are taking you out right now to i-4 eastbound, right at 1792. cars are not moving. this has been going on for quite a while. i'll step out of the way so you can see here. it appears a crash on the other side of the trees is blocking that exit ramp to get on to 1792. again this is i-4 eastbound and some troubles there. we do have an alternate route for you. we'll get to that in just a second. so taking a look here, if i were you, i would take i-4 eastbound to state road 46 as an alternate. again to avoid that backup there on 1792. taking you down to kissimmee. still seeing some major delays on the florida turnpike. this is right after osceola parkway. florida 91, florida turnpike northbound. so you see those red lines there in those northbound lanes.
8:20 am
times. i-4 eastbound, john young parkway to downtown, three minutes. and if you're using the 408 this morning, ross road to downtown, will take you 11 minutes. time now for the pump patrol. regular gas is just $1.89 at the citgo at south avenue in orlando. and remember you can always find these gas saving tips on our website, click on traffic and then pump patrol. ryan and amy, back to you. >> amy: all all right. thanks. it's an easter basket for a beef lover in your life. >> ryan: that's for sure. david martin, that's quite a place behind you. >> reporter: it is. good morning to you. we are live at the beef jerky outlet. i got my friends here who are going to show us their favorite flavors of beef jerky and, amy, i have something for your kids.
