3:01 am

3:02 am
rebuilding to be done, people there are just grateful they escaped with their lives. >> violent, large tornado, wow! >> reporter: as afternoon turned evening, this massive twister kept wayne's 10,000 residents frightened and in search of cover. in these pictures, you get a sense, it's you not the scope of the destruction. trees split in two, taking power lines down with them. businesses like this one crumbled. even big semis were no watch for the powerful winds. this woman told reporters that as the skies darkened and the winds begin to howl, she and her husband feared the worst. >> we just knew there was a tornado. my husband was out watching. i heard on the radio it was going to hit the town of wayne. he ran in, and we ran to the bsement. >> reporter: when the couple emerged from the shelter their home was gone. thankfully, she said, their
3:03 am
children spent the afternoon elsewhere and were fine. the mayor is thankful no one was killed. >> everyone that we know are safe and sound. there are some injuries. those folks were taken to the hospital and treated. >> well nebraska is not the only state hit hard. let's bring in alexandria steele. good morning, where else have we seen damage? >> 17 reports of tornados in three states. iowa was one of the biggest areas hit with a mile-wide tornado. let me show you some video. it was tornadoes part of the same system with snow. this is nebraska. poppy mentioned it, june is the biggest month for tornadoes. of course, it's spring but it's the clash of air masses whether it's spring or fall. it's that hot and cold coming together. so, they have had them before in october here. in 2001, there were 11. but obviously, certainly, it's rare for this time of year.
3:04 am
iowa, mile-wide tornado in mobil moville, iowa. south dakota, we go with 3 feet of snow. on the back side of this potent storm where it wasn't heat like we're seeing with the tornadoes. it was the call air top to bottom. more snow today, rapid city, south dakota, potentially a foot which will put it on the top ten snowstorms on record. to wyoming, more snow there. today, it is eastern wyoming. heavy, wet snow, and again, part of the same system that's all pushing eastward. so more snow today in eastern wyoming. here's a look at the radar picture. this is the swath of concern today for severe weather. not as intense as we saw yesterday. so the tornado threat not as bad. but what we're going to see the winds that will be a factor and also hail. chicago to st. louis, there's the line of rain right now. kansas city down to oklahoma
3:05 am
city it is all moving eastward. in chicago, madison, wisconsin down to indian st. louis. again not as intense but gusty wind and hail. all of a sudden, the threat pushes eastward and actually into buffalo, new york. this day, it will be very gusty winds that will be the biggest threatening aspect. again, certainly a lot less in terms of the tornado aspect. forecast it's going to light up from st. louis to oklahoma. and then pushes eastward towards sunday you see the robustness of this, a little less, still on monday it pushes eastward. of course huge story. not only the tornadoes, the record snow, but we've got tropical weather. tropical storm karen, of course, guys in the gulf. indira's live and will pick it up from there. >> let's go to indira right now and talk ago karen. karen could bring heavy rain to parts of the gulf coast, lead to flooding. and cnn's indira petersens is in
3:06 am
pensacola beach. i know folks there have seen storms worse than this one. are they take this threat from karen seriously? >> reporter: you know, the thing is, the storm continues to weaken and people are aware of what's going on out here. they're closely listening to the latest advisories. you can tell the seas are picking up here. we continue to get good news after good news. the biggest one instead of this being borderline tropical storm or category 1 hurricane today is 40 miles per hour. that is actually one mile per hour over a tropical storm. now it's borderline tropical depression or tropical storms. they're listening to the warnings and saying we're going to continue to monitor this. the biggest concern, the good thing, it's slowed down, moving to 8 miles per hour. with that, it's actually stuck in the zone. kind of tearing the top off of this guy. you can almost see the center of circulation moving to the north.
3:07 am
but all of those reds and greens, that's moving to the east. the top is ripped off. it needs to get through what i want to call a speed bump in order for it to stay together. we obviously hope it doesn't do that but as it does curve east that's what it's going to do tonight. that's going to hold together. and that's why we're standing here in pensacola. we have the tropical storm watches from new orleans to the panhandle. what are we talking about rain weiss? it's diminished, 1 to 3 inches. still, storm surge and high winds. those are the big concerns. we'll continue to monitor it here. >> indira petersons is in pensacola. thanks very much. we want to bring you breaking news from overnight, new york police have two bikers in custody accused being involved in that crash between an suv driver earlier this week. a nypd spokesman said these two men turned themselves in late last night. >> one is reginald chance.
3:08 am
one is that one that is shown here smashing the helmet. and the other side is robert sims. he tries to open the driver's side door. >> susan candiotti has been coverage the story and she has more from new york. >> poppy and victor, good morning. an off duty cop was along for the ride on sunday. the nypd officer may have seen most if not all of what happened including the assault of the suv's driver, according to a law enforcement source. but this officer only came forward to tell his story wednesday night, four days after the incident. it's unclear whether the delay violates the law or nypd rules. internal affairs is looking into it. and nypd and the d.a.'s office have no comment. >> reporter: police have now tracked down the motorcyclist who shot this helmet cam video. questioning him and taking the
3:09 am
video as evidence. until now we've only seen an edited version posted online. it cuts off moments before authorities say alexian leen is pulled out of an suv beaten and slashed in front of his 1-year-old child. our plan last sunday was to celebrate our wedding anniversary by having a nice family day out with our 2-year-old daughter. unfortunately, we were placed in grave danger by a gang of violent and recs motorcyclists. his wife agreed with the decision to peel away from the crowd critically injuring one. my husband was forced under the circumstances to take the action that's he did in order to protect the lives of our entire family. cnn has learned it was mrs. lien who made the last of three 911 calls the couple made as her husband was being attacked. we would like to thank the brave
3:10 am
citizens who risked their own safety to intervene on our behalf. they truly helped to save our lives. new video emerging showing bikers from the rally riding on sidewalks. prompting police to call for more enforcement. >> i don't see why you can have 500 motorcycles doing wheelies and out of control, stopping traffic, totally stopping traffic on the highway or some streets and doing whatever they want. >> reporter: one of the motorcyclist jerome davis witnessed the confrontation and told out front they're not just a wild gang. >> it's not a gang. we're not a gang. >> reporter: how would you describe it? >> as a gang. >> reporter: as a gang, what's the right word? >> family. friends. >> susan candiotti, cnn, new york. >> thank you very much. a lot of people watched that. i think mark geragos told
3:11 am
anderson cooper something really interesting here this week. it depends which party you relate to more. if you're a parent who drivesen an suv with a kid in a car maybe you'll see the lien side of this. or if you're somebody out on a motorcycle or riding in a group you'll see the other side. >> later in the show, we're going to have someone who is a motorcyclisist enthusiast. he'll talk about that. as, we want to talk about the sisters of the woman who led police on that chase at the white house and then to the capitol before she was thought to death. they're now trying to understand what happened. >> right, in an exclusive interview with our anderson cooper, miriam carey's sister said that carey, the mother of a 1-year-old had been diagnosed with postpartum depression with psychosis, but she told anderson her system seemed to be getting better. listen.
3:12 am
>> how was that manifested in her life? is that something that you saw in her life? >> no, it wasn't something displayed. it was a mother momentary breakdown where he had to go and get i spoke closely with her, i am a parent i have two children. she's just like anyone else, she had questions, you know, we dealt with that as a family. but there was nothing out of the ordinary. >> did she seem in recent days to be off medication or to be unstable? >> no. she didn't appear to be unstable. >> care she got when she had the psychosis and the depression, how long ago was that? do you know? >> the diagnosis came a little bit after her birth of her daughter. maybe a few months after. >> her daughter is what, a year old, is that correct? >> her daughter is a year. she's 1-year-old. i did recently ask her about the
3:13 am
medication. i talked to her often about that. and she told me that the doctors told her that she was -- she didn't need the medication anymore because the plan was for her to come off of the medication within a year. and they were confident that she was better. they tapered her off of medication and she said she felt fine. >> do you know for a fact that was something that the doctors recommend shed get off the medication, or is that something she told you? >> no, that's what the plan was. the plan of care for a patient that has depression with psychosis is medication and treatment. and not to have long-term medication like bipolar or schizophrenic. she didn't have any prior history of any type of psych history. that's why they told her one year and they'd take over the plan. >> one of the important things to remember here as we cover this story and as we learn more
3:14 am
about it is that there's a significant difference between postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis. coming up later, we'll speak to a doctor to tell you the differences. this morning, we would like to tell you -- >> didn't that happen overnight? >> no, certainly not. we'd like to tell you the politicians had reopened the government. >> day five of the government shutdown. we'll tell you where the government stands? >> the you're rhythmics, yes! ♪ travel the world and the seven seas everybody's looking for something ♪ no matter how busy your morning you can always do something better for yourself. and better is so easy with benefiber. fiber that's taste-free, grit-free and dissolves completely. so you can feel free to add it to anything. and feel better about doing it. better it with benefiber.

especially western south dakota historic and record-breaking snow. another 20 inches potentially today. of course, we talked about the tornadoes yesterday. reports of 17 in three states. now the axis of tornadoes today shifts eastward. madison, wisconsin, to chicago. down to st. louis. again, the greatest threat today will be winds, though, and even some hail. and of course, tropical storm karen, there it is in the gulf. where is it going and when will it make land fall. two potential land falls here. i'll show you where that is coming up, guys. >> thank you so much. we want to move on to this story now. we're learning more about the woman who police say in washington led them to a frightening chase. in the end she was shot dead. >> yeah, miriam carey's family said she suffered with porter part item depression with psychosis. >> her boyfriend said she had trouble sleeping. he also said she had delusions.
3:33 am
he was worried about her and their child together. they question what the boyfriend was saying about her being delusional. take a listen. >> it's very unfortunate that miriam is not alive right now. and a lot of thing, being said that she seemed to be crazy or schizophrenic or things like that. i can tell you that she was a woman that was a law abiding citizen. carefree, loving just like anyone else. she had a baby and she did suffer from postpartum depression with psychosis which comes along with medication. and therapy. which she did. she was very compliant with her medication. at the time that she was diagnosed with that, as you know, depression can have a certain level of instability at that time which is why she was diagnosed. >> well, the role that mental illness may have played in thursday's capitol hill shooting has a lot of people search for answers this morning, including
3:34 am
carey's family. >> let's open this up, answer some questions here, what are postpartum depression and psychosis? and what are the warning signs for new mothers and their families. >> joining us to discuss all of this psychologist eric fisher known as dr. e. let's bring with this. i think it's very differentiation to me. postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis is very rare. let's talk about the difference. >> we want to start off by talking about baebt blues. the baby blues is very common. because you have this rush of hormone activity after the child's born those hormones influence our neural biologists which affect the world and reality. postpartum depression occurs in 9% to 19%. postpartum psychosis is about 0.1%. what you have to understand is the difference in symptoms for
3:35 am
somebody who may have baby blues. sadness, difficulty eating. mood swings, hard time sleeping to more significant issues of depression that come with a postpartum depression. this can come also come with difficulty of attaching to your child. thoughts of hurting your child and even isolation issues that can occur with that. postpartum psychosis, the difficulty with that you're losing touch with reality. you can have delusions. auditory and visual hallucinatio hallucinations. and the key to depression and psychosis both of them need to be managed often psychiatrically with medication. it's not something that people can work their way through like the baby influences. >> the carey family wants to know if protocol has been operating careful there is any way that this woman driving with this 1400 pound weapon as it's been called to reason with? >> what people do, in delusion,
3:36 am
what they believe is right. she might have been treated this well. however, over menstrual cycles can trigger this. traumatic brain injury can be a factor. previous histories in a family. and other triggers could lead down the road to some of these outcomes we see. >> dr. e. we appreciate your expertise. there's still discrepancies on any injuries that might have happened leading up to this. >> a lot of questions. >> we may not know exactly what she was thinking. thanks for joining us. you have to admit, the government shutdown is not much to see actually. there are no explosions, no wreckage or raging fires or rushing floodwaters or anything like that. >> although people are that angry. >> that's true, some people are. >> but the war of words coming

4:02 am
suv driver. police say chance came to them voluntarily. and he is -- the charges for him, they are pending. now the second biker, he's also in custody. robert sims, he turned himself in on friday. he was captured getting off his bike in the middle of the road and approaching the van and trying to open the door of the suv before it sped off. >> so, margaret, we've also learned there have been a lot of developments just in the last 24 hours. one of the things we've learned an off-duty police officer was actually one of the bikers who witnessed the incident. that raises a lot of questions why didn't he come forward to superiors sooner. it took three or four days. and why, frankly, didn't that officer step in? what do you know about that? >> right, poppy, as susan candiotti reported last night there was an undercover police officer who was there. he belonged to a bike club. that is the big question, poppy.
4:03 am
everyone wants to know. the incident happened on sunday, he didn't come forward until wednesday. that's four days after the incident occurred. so right now, they're saying that could be a violation of nypd policy. so the district attorney is investigating. and it's also being investigated by internal affairs. >> now, a lot of questions on this as it continues to develop. you know, it happened right on the west side highway. a place margaret i know very well-being a place in new york, a very scary thing. new video being released as well. >> very crowded area. >> very crowded area. you're right. thank you for the reporting. wee appreciate it. >> we're now hearing from the man who witnessed the beating and helped stop the attack on the suv driver. sergio carsuga spoke exclusively to cnn's anderson cooper. listen. >> you were actually standing between one of the people who was hitting the guy with his helmet and the man on the floor,
4:04 am
the driver. you stood between them? >> yeah. >> were the motorcyclists saying anything back to you. >> yeah, one of the them with helmet on, he say no -- i say please stop. don't -- let him go. one of the men, a short guy, he say no because he run one of us. so i understood what he was saying because i didn't know what happened before, you know, before anything else. >> he was saying that the driver ran over -- >> yeah, that's what i heard him saying. but when i -- i kept -- you know, i didn't want to talk to him, engage in any, whatever situation that happened before. so i kept saying the same thing. i stood my ground. and i looked at them in their eyes and they look at me. basically there was a little tense moment of maybe a couple of seconds of looking at each other, they somehow got -- i don't know, they stopped.
4:05 am
somehow, they stopped. >> sergio stepping in to help there in a really dire situation. we're going to keep you updated on this situation. >> let's talk about the weather overnight. a powerful tornado ripped through nebraska last night. no one was killed. flying debris and power lines and trees. the storm ripped off roofs. flipped vehicles. look at this house. crumbled belongings there. simon brewer say meteorologist and a storm chaser. he's on the phones with from sioux city, iowa. simon, you were there when this tornado hit friday. what was it like? >> well, it was a very large and violent tornado. the conditions in the area were perfect for a tornado outbreak to occur. so we're expecting all of these dangerous tornados to develop and cause destruction and injuries and possibly loss of life. >> we've seen tornadoes over the
4:06 am
year that either hop from one community to the next. and one house is demolished. the one next door is untouched. then we've seen damage like the one we saw in moore where communities are gone. how would you compare this tornado to those? how widespread is the damage? >> well, i'm not actually sure how widespread the damage is. but the tornado itself, how long a track it was, it went -- tons of miles. and there are many tornadoes that are pretty long track and they're very strong. they're definitely front end tornadoes. so if these tornadoes were to go through heavy populated area they would cause damage as we saw from the moore tornado earlier this spring. >> wow, we're going to see more pictures as the sun comes up over nebraska. tornadoes like this, you say there's one that went for miles and then others, are they uncommon this time of year? >> they're very uncommon this
4:07 am
time of year but they're not unheard of. there have been f-5 tornado in october. in fact, there was an f-5 tornado in the state of iowa. quite a few years ago, i believe it was in the 1960s, if my memory serves me correctly. so they're not unheard of, but they're very rare. and they have to have a special situation, kind of like yesterday, to occur. >> wow. all right. meteorologist and storm chaser simon brewer. good to have you with us this morning. >> thank you. >> as we look at some of these pictures and get a better idea as the sun comes up over nebraska. >> we want to tell you about more severe weather down south. on the gulf coast residents are preparing for tropical storm karen. the second named storm to hit the u.s. this year. karen might not be the strongest storm they face but it could bring severe flooding. indira petersons is in pensacola
4:08 am
beach. tell me what you're seeing this hour. it has weakened but still serious. >> reporter: yeah, it's delve a lig concern here, the question is will it or will it not hold together? you talked about weakening. yesterday, we were concerned that can could be a strong tropical storm or cat 1. today, it's weakened enough that it's actually one mile per hover a tropical storm. 39 miles per hour, that's going to make it a tropical storm. if it weakens it will be a depression. it's on that borderline. emare monitoring it closely. they want to know will it hold together, will it even strengthen? what is going on? the big changes that actually it has slowed down significantly. only move to get north at 8 miles per hour. you can almost see the center trying to make its way north and all the clouds streamed off to the right, like ripping apart. and that's what we're looking at. if it continues to go slow it will continue to rip apart. notice all the dry air in the
4:09 am
vicinity. however getting over it and curve to get northeast like expected overnight, it will have a tiny strength but holding together and we will have the concerns, of course, of a tropical storm. you already have morgan city as a tropical storm warning. 35 to 40-mile-per-hour winds. stronger gusts out there. heavy rains. some places could see as much as 6 inches. the majority of places it has weaken to 1 to 3 inches that's good. >> whenever you have a storm weakening, i think people say i don't have to take it as seriously. having gone through all of us in new york, sandy, superstorm sandy we know what these things can turn into even last minute. are people there taking the threat seriously? >> reporter: you know, they're all saying, this is a gorgeous day, it's a beautiful weekend. but we are definitely smart enough, we've been through this before. we're going to continue to focus on what the forecasts say. will it turn, will it not?
4:10 am
will it hold together? they're watching hour by hour to make their decisions important leave or stay. like you say, they do have to take it seriously regards of what happens here even if it continues to weaken that storm is making its way into more areas with 10 to 15 inches with rain. there are concerns with trees uprooted so quickly with the ground saturated. still a lot to be concerned with. >> indira, thank you. house lawmakers will be on the job today voting on spending bills for collect government programs that may sound like a good thing but it's not going to end the five-day government shutdown. five days thus far. we were going to play president obama's remarks on the shutdown from the radio address but as you can see, the shutdown has shut down the radio address. cnn's jill dougherty at the white house. we're learning as we go through this, jill, what actually is not accessible because of the shutdown. what are you hearing about criticism of senator ted cruz this morning?
4:11 am
>> well, oddly enough, both sides, both democrats and republicans, are beginning to criticize him. the tea party approach. you have dick durbin and you as have peter king, both from the opposite sides and here's what they're saying about ted cruz. >> for goodness sakes, this is irresponsible and it's reckless. why does this senator or the tea party republicans think they can pick and choose the priorities of the american government. >> you knew this could never work. you knew this from the start. that's why this was unfortunate advertising on his part. he's basically a con man. and how the house republicans allowed themselves to be suckered in by this guy is beyond me. >> yeah, so this is -- everybody has been caught in the cross fire in this one, victor. >> our cnn's jill dougherty covering the government shutdown from the white house this morning. we're seeing how this is not only a fight between the white house and congress, but also a

4:34 am
can make landfall and what we'll expect. let's talk about air safety in this government shutdown. did you know that a third of all the faa employees are sitting out at home right now, right now, during this shutdown? air traffic controllers, they, of course, are still on the job. still on the towers but you might be surprised to learn that the faa considers 3,000 safe inspectors among its nonessential workers. we're going to talk to mark murphy from travel inscripted. and mary ensciavo. she's are the workers that inspect repairs done. they inspect upgrades on claims. responsible for planes both here in the u.s. and overseas on our planes. my question to you is, is air
4:35 am
safety at risk as a result of this? >> well it depends how long this shut down is going to last. tentatively what these inspectors do is they oversee the designated inspectors who are employeed by the airlines. by boeing. and those people actually continue on the job because their paychecks are paid by the company. so the faa appoints them to inspect and then the faa oversees them. so what happened in 1995, they just stayed on the job. this time, it's a little different. if it's a short shutdown, they won't have a backlog of inspections do. really what the faa does is they look over the shoulder of designated inspectors. >> association mark, talking about what it means for the traveler here, this is is a relatively short shutdown so far. who's to say how long it's going to go. what steps are the airlines taking because of this to ensure that the fliers are safe? >> i think you have to look at the airlines they want to have
4:36 am
planes that are flying safely, just as mary mentioned you have different levels of safety on the ground. you did point out with the inspections taking place those weren't adequate with those folks on the job so i think air safety is critical. and, mary, to your point, with regards to these maintenance facilities. a lot of people don't realize a lot of the maintenance and repair, actually done outside of the u.s. in lower labor cost areas, hence, that's where i think one of the focuses needs to be and that's where it's been lacking. >> can we talk, mary, who's going to certify the planes and say yes, indeed they are ready to fly? >> for the big manufacturers, boeing does 95% of their own certifications. so they will go forward. what's really going to be crucial here is foreign inspections for one because the faa does not cover them very
4:37 am
well as it is, there are some foreign stations who almost never see the faa but also smaller operations in the united states, on demand air travel, private aviation, all of them don't have their own inspectors. >> interestingly, boeing who does most of their own certification, but not all has warned recently that the shutdown may delay its ability to deliver new plane to the customers. mark, looking at the customer impact, we have no idea how long this is going to go. let's say it's two months, let's hope it's not, what does that mean for travelers? >> i think if you get to a month, two months, three months, that's where you'll see the impact for the flying public. this can't go on forever. these people are involved in the training of air traffic controllers and other folks that are critical to the air traffic system. if that continue then you're going to see an issue. let's hope that it doesn't.

16 minutes to the top of the hour. we're now in the e-block. that means it's time for entertainment! yes. let's start with the feud between miley cyrus and irish singer sinead o'connor. and right now as o'connor threatening legal action. they've been going back and forth with each other this week through tweets and open letters. >> one of those letters o'connor wrote quote, i'm extremely concerned that those around you have led you to believe or encouraged you in your own
4:45 am
belief that it is in any way cool to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your video. it is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent allowed you to be pimped. >> and 1992, she ripped up a picture of the pope on "snl" and said fight the real enemy. in another, cyrus references her struggle with mental illness comparing her to amanda bynes. >> kendra g., thanks for coming in. is it hypocritical? >> hypocritical is the word. first of all sinead o'connor, she went about it all wrong. you wrote an open letter and belittled her. back in 1992 when you're ripping
4:46 am
up the picture of the pope. you have been down his line that miley cyrus is currently going in. if she would have brought her to the side and said i want a side conversation with you it would have been more meaningful. >> if you are really concerned, you don't write an open letter to say, hey, everybody i have this to say to you. some would say sinead o'connor because of that '92 performance, he's either the wrong right for the exact right person on how to perform? >> i think she means it in a nice and caring way. to me this open letter shows she doesn't care about miley cyrus. i don't like wait she went about it. >> but one of the messages in the letter was about the music business and music executives. sinead talking about i guarantee those executives will be on their yachts in antigua making more money off of it than you.
4:47 am
don't be taken in. you think the delivery was wrong? >> yes, don't get it twisted. to say, frankly, miley cyrus has a lot of money. so she's on a yacht, too. she's not broke by any means. i understand what sinead o'connor is saying. she's bitter right now. she's an older woman and right now she's bitter. let's talk about the next one, actress mia farrow dropped a bombshell this week she revealed that frank sinatra may be the baby daddy. her son ronan. >> they have this son ronan. she's the biological son of farrow and woody allen. the son sent out a tweet saying listen, we're all possibly frank sinatra's sons. making light of that. how awful is that?
4:48 am
>> how cool is that saying sinatra is the dad. woody allen is married to his adopted sister. he once said that he's my father and also my brother-in-law at the same time. so that would change if frank sinatra is the father. i think it's ridiculous. >> it's all a little uncomfortable. speaking of uncomfortable. >> she's back. >> let's talk about the britney video. britney debuted this new video for a single. it's got whips and chains. >> right. >> but she says this is the tame version for the new video. she said actually she left out some scenes because they were too sexy now that she's a mother of two. is this still too sexy for a mother of two? >> it is too sexy for the average mother of two. but not too sex dr. ffor britne spears. first of all, her body looks

5:01 am
the things i bought are generally psychedelics. >> the secret world online from dot-com to door step. good morning. i'm poppy harlow. >> i'm victor blackwell. this is "new day saturday." a lot has happened overnight. >> police in new york have two bikers in custody accused in the involvement in the clash with the suv driver this week. >> one of the men is the one seen pushing out the window. we have margaret conley live in new york with more. what else do you know? >> reporter: victor, reginald chance is the guy in the video pounding on the suv car window. we are at west 178th street.
5:02 am
that scene happened here behind me. the suv got off the freeway trying to get away from the bikers. now reginald chance turned himself in. he is being questioned right now and charges are still pending. the other man in custody. robert sims. he actually got off his bike in the middle of the road and went up to open the door of the suv before it was able to speed away. >> you know, margaret, we also learned that the off-duty police officer was one of the bikers who witnessed the incident. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: poppy, susan candiotti reported last night that a police officer was off duty and he works as an undercover officer. he was in the crowd because he was part of the group. he was there and witnesses say he could be a key witness. he not only saw the suv driver
5:03 am
hit the biker, but he also saw the beating. the big question is why did it take so long for him to come forward? this happened on sunday and he did not come forward in wednesday, four days later. >> one more thing, margaret. what about the biker, the suv driver drove over? what about him? >> reporter: right. victor, he is in critical condition. his name is edwin mieses. his lungs have been bruised and he is partially paralyzed. he has hired famed attorney gloria allred. >> a lot of questions surrounding the story of the undercover cop, margaret mentioned. let's bring in an undercover
5:04 am
police officer from florida. he is part of the protection group. lou, what would you do if you were this off duty, undercover cop? are you supposed to intervene? you are supposed to at least report it within hours, right? >> the first thing, victor, there is a distinction between being off duty and undercover police officer. an undercover police officer is one who is actually working a sensitive case for example. gun trafficking or someone on a watch list of a terrorist group who is part of the pack and part of the investigation and reporting to his superiors. one off duty elects to join the group of bikers to go out for a ride. in the course of that, if he witnesses an assault or any
5:05 am
irregularity, he is required to report it immediately to police. if he had a cell phone, he would dial 911 and give location and identify yourself and identify the exact nature of the incident. this waiting four days, we have to first determine what exactly his role of participation in the incident. did he witness an assault? did he witness the bikers illegally shutdown the highway? did he witness the assault or pursuit? this investigation is ongoing. the police department is going to be tight-lipped about it. you still have to figure out what was he doing there specifically. >> lou, you are formerly with the nypd. you know the rules well. would it have been against
5:06 am
policy for him not to go to his superiors right away or is there a policy? >> yes. they could charge him, for examp example, if he had knowledge and he did not report and non fee sans. they could charge him with being complicit to the assault. let's not get ahead of ourselves. i'm sure internal affairs is looking into it to give him a fair review and come out with an assessment of what took place. >> i want to make sure i get the reporting here. the officer who works undercover was off duty and riding with a motorcycle. so we don't say he was either off duty or under cover. he was undercover and off duty. >> i'm sorry. i have another question. why would the police department
5:07 am
or any branch of it basically burn an undercover? let's say he was attached to a drug evnforcement and he was working a high-profile case? why would they identify him as an undercover to the world and everyone watching television suddenly know he is an undercover. it doesn't make sense. it is not responsible. >> we will continue to try to get answers about that officer and his role or lack of role on that day. lou, thanks for your expertise. >> my pleasure. people in wayne, nebraska are getting a look at the damage left behind by the tornadoes yesterday. look at this. fortunately so far what we know is no one was killed. as many as a dozen homes were lost. that twister you see is 1 of 18
5:08 am
that touched down in three states. iowa and south dakota may have seen them. it is rare to see a tornado this time of year, but it is not unheard of. the american red cross is sending teams to the area to help the people cope with the storm's aftermath. the storm knocked out power to half the residents of rapid city, south dakota. from california, where strong winds are creating ripe conditions for wildfires to snow. snow in early october in the midwest. rough weather is hitting many parts of the country this weekend. let's bring in meteorologist alexandra steele in the severe weather center. alexandra, it looks like a blizzard hit the midwest. is more snow on the way? >> it is. more blizzard-like conditions. it is the weather trifecta. the snow and tornadoes angles the fire threats. let's start with the snow. let's take you to wyoming and what it looked like. incredible snow. look at this. it is october. of course, you know tornadoes are rare, but to have a
5:09 am
snowstorm like this as well and be this historic is rare as well. eastern wyoming will see snow today. the bull's-eye for today's snow which will look like that because it will be heavy wet snow coupled with strong winds is rapid city, south dakota. 15 to 20 inches of snow. possibly making it one of the top ten snowfalls of all time for that area. all right. the trifecta portion number two. tornadoes. large violent tornadoes. it looks like a scene from a movie. as we said, it is uncommon, but not unheard of. we have had 11 tornadoes in 2011 in october. these were ferocious and a mile wide. we will have more details on this. the shutdown of the government may impact the number of
5:10 am
observers that will go out to check on this. to the fire threat as well. october, notorious in california. santa ana winds. even yesterday, 77-mile-an-hour gust in laguna park in ventura county. in l.a. county, 52-mile-an-hour winds reported. here because of high pressure in the center of the country, it is fuelling all of these things. driving these santa ana winds and warming them west and creating the conditions east. we have it all happening. not to be last, we will talk about the tropical storm. we have indra with that coming up. thank you. >> let's talk about the storm. people along the gulf coast are keeping a close eye on the forecast this weekend.
5:11 am
tropical storm karen is out there inching closer to storm. let's go to indra petersons in pensaco pensacola, florida. >> reporter: at this point in time, the storm continues to break apart. there is a reason for that. right now, it is at 40 miles per hour. the difference between today and yesterday, yesterday, it was on the border of a strong tropical storm or category 1 hurricane. 39 miles per hour would make it a tropical storm. what is going on? it has slowed down significantly. it is moving to the north at 8 miles per hour. if you actually look at it, most of what you see and you think actually is a tropical storm, it is the right of it sheared off and the winds are trying to break it off. there looks like a circulation going straight north and the rest is going east. as long as it stay where s wher,
5:12 am
it will break off. if it makes it northeast, which it is expected to do, it will get over the speed bump and dry air and it could hold together. that is where we have the concern for the tropical storm conditions. in louisiana, we still have a tropical storm warning. that means within 36 hours, they will see the strong winds. gusting higher than 40 miles an hour. anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of rain. some places could see 6 inches of rain. we will talk about, of course, the tide coming up as well and storm surge. the biggest concern is the winds ripping trees out of the ground. >> indra petersons, thank you. in pensacola, florida. to politics now. president obama demand the republicans quote end this farce and reopen the government. >> take that vote. stop this farce. end this shutdown now.
5:13 am
the american people don't get to demand ransom exchange for doing their job. they don't get to hold our economy hostage over a settled law. >> that settled law that the president referred to is the health care act. that leaves us all in limbo. >> the house is at work today. day five of the government shutdown. >> we are expecting one vote by lawmakers today. >> we have athina jones at the white house today. what is the house voting on today? >> reporter: good morning, victor and poppy. we enter the fifth day. one glimmer of hope today. the house is coming in in about an hour to vote on the furloughed workers. the workers ordered to stay home during the shutdown.
5:14 am
this bill would allow them to be paid once the government reopens. we expect the house to vote on it and senate to pass it and the president to sign it. that is the only positive step here. we have seen over the last few days. the rest of it has been a continuingly heated war of words as each party tries to win this messaging battle. tries to point the finger at the other party to say they're to blame for the shutdown. house speaker john boehner yesterday took issue with a report in "the wall street journal" suggesting they were winning this messaging battle. listen to what he had to say. >> this morning, i get "the wall street journal" out and i said we don't care how long this lasts because we're winning. this isn't some damn game. the american people don't want their government shutdown and neither do i.
5:15 am
>> reporter: so there you heard speaker boehner saying it's not his fault that the government is shutdown. now on the democratic side, the president has said it is up to speaker boehner just to bring to the floor a spending bill to fund the entire government and they could end the shutdown in 30 minutes. that is the battle going on. it continues today. we expect to hear more of the same today. back to you. >> athena, thank you. i will say it is more than just the government workers that hopefully they will get paid, but so many other workers are impacted by this and will not get back pay. >> we will see if it moves quickly. a grieving family. this morning they want answers. their sister was shot after a high-speed police chase in the nation's capitol. her family says they are trying to put together the pieces. and drugs, guns and chemicals. all available for sale on the web of the we are looking into

republicans, quote, stop this farce and reopen the government. the senate is ready to pass a budget and the house should do the same. number four, hope is fading that anymore survivors will be found in that wreckage of the boat that sank off the coast of italy. 111 people confirmed dead now. more than 200 others are still missing. the boat was packed with african migrants. italy observed a day of national mourning on friday. and number five, a wronged supreme leader is giving support to the diplomatic approach. ayatollah khomeini says the u.s. cannot be trusted according to iranian state media. you will remember rouhani and president obama talked by phone. it was the first communication between the two countries
5:34 am
leaders since 1979. the government shutdown is fuelling anger across the country. a cbs news poll shows almost 3/4 of americans think the fighting is not reason to shutdown the government. >> and some are adding to the outrage many americans are feeling. a hot mic caught two republican senators reviewing their shutdown talking points. listen. >> i'm all wired up here. >> i just did cnn. i go over and over again, we're willing to compromise. i don't think they pulled that. i think it is awful for them to say that. >> i do, too. i just came back from the two-hour meeting with him. that was basically the same view privately as publicly. >> i think if we keep saying we defund it and now we're willing to compromise, we -- i think -- i know we don't want to be here. we're going to win this, i
5:35 am
think. >> let's talk to two cnn commentators. hilary rose and then ben ferguson. i want to start with you, ben, about that comment from senator paul and the comment from house speaker john boehner. boehner held up a newspaper saying this is not some damn game. it seems like there is gamesmanship on both sides. senator paul keeps saying this over and over, i can win this. is that hypocritical? >> no. they say they can negotiate. they sent back another option to delay it a year. this is the sausage being made in washington and people hate seeing that happen. it is like yesterday, barack obama walks out of the white house with the vice president of the united states of america and they act like it is impromptu and he is not wearing a jacket
5:36 am
and he knows a diner is giving 10% off before he speaks at the restaurant. this restaurant is giving 10% off to the furloughed workers. the sad part is they should not do it in public. the president should be at camp david with his people and they should act like adults for the weekend and get away from people and away from impromptu lunches. it never happened with the president. it is insane they are not at camp david. >> they should do this anywhere. if it takes camp david, it takes camp david. hilary, many deemed the impromptu lunch and made the statement about the government shutdown. nothing is impromptu in washington and in politics. hilary, go ahead and weigh in on
5:37 am
that. >> we should remember that much of the cooking staff at the white house is actually off this week. >> i think he can make a sandwich. continue. >> the president had the congressional leaders to the white house. they met privately with no staff for over two hours. and what we saw later that night was, you know, john boehner being confronted by members of his more moderate republicans in the caucus and getting some recognition with those guys that letting this go all the way to the debt ceiling would be a disaster. that's really the key here that john boehner, in his heart, knows that he is the looming -- the link to the looming disaster. he has the votes. all he has to do is bring it to the floor. he would get a bipartisan group of republicans and democrats who do want to work together and say
5:38 am
we don't need to go to brinksmanship here. we can pass a continuing resolution. to -- i think ultimately that is what he will do. what the house has chosen to do today, instead of negotiating, they are feeling the heat. let me finish and you get your say. the house today, because they are feeling the heat, because the capitol police officers are not getting paid and workers are being hurt, they are going to pass a bill assuring federal workers that they will get back pay once their games are over. we have to see through the cynicism. >> i saw it myself play out on liberty island. the concession stand workers. the tour bus people that are connected to having the tourism industry up and running. they are getting hurt and they are not getting back pay. >> no doubt this is hurting
5:39 am
people. i think it is funny how this all in hilary's mind revolves around republican whose dons who don't control of the senate. negotiating in politics has always happened. every president we had that has had a government shutdown negotiated the entire time. never did bill clinton or jimmy carter or bush 41 say i had a bigger hand. i go back to presidential leadership here. the president has got to stop playing games and realize he is not a dictator. you have to work with congress. they have the purse strings to what you need. this government shutdown -- to walk out and for the president say i will not negotiate with people with bombs strapped to their chest. to treat them like terrorists?
5:40 am
>> the president is not going to negotiate on a law -- >> we have to cut it. it is four days and eight hours and 49 seconds. the conversation continues. obama care had a rocky rollout this week. we dispatched our own expert to field people's questions about the affordable care act. it was a banner week for novak djokovic. here's this week's "open court." >> with six grand slam titles and the number one ranking in men's tennis, novak djokovic clearly likes the view from the top. >> all my life, i have been dreaming to be the best in the world in tennis. my dreams came true. >> from humble beginnings in war-torn serbia, djokovic overcame the odds. >> it was a difficulty
5:41 am
financially. big support from my father and mother and family. they gave me hope that i can actually succeed. i remember as a kid, i was, you know, improvising and making trophies out of different materials and going in front of the mirror and lifting the trophies and saying i was a champion. >> and djokovic doesn't shy away from the attention that comes from being the top player in the men's game. >> i accept it as part of my work, part of my life. i do enjoy it as well. i do prefer television more. i like camera.
5:42 am
5:43 am
5:44 am
5:45 am
many americans spent this week getting up to date and speed on obama care. we are all still learning what the affordable care act means for us. >> chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta hit the road to explain it. >> reporter: we decided to find out what is happening in the country by touring the country. this is the cnn express. we decided to travel around many different states. our first stop is greenville, south carolina. >> i want to know if a person's age is going to impact the premiums, whether it will be higher for older people or lower. >> you can't be discriminated against based on pre-existing
5:46 am
condition. diabetes or cancer. they don't ask but those things. >> are you familiar with what this means for you as a 23-year-old? >> i'm not. >> there is good news here for you. you can now stay on your parents plan up until age 26. >> you are the bearer of good news. >> it is now day two and we're in lexington, kentucky. one thing you notice, a state divided. a democratic governor in favor of the affordable care act and two senators who hate it. a lot of mixed messages for the people here. >> if we do nothing and keep the same plan, it will be a 30% increase. that is opposed to generally in the 20% to 25% increase. >> we have the first time in history to provide affordable health insurance for every single kentuckian.
5:47 am
>> we are in baltimore, maryland. day three. things are going well. they will let us inside the call center or nerve center to see how they deal with the problems. >> how can i help you today? >> you want to enroll. >> the web site is a dynamic tool. >> we can go through their options and tell them the plans they qualify for. we can't tell them this is the best plan, but we tell people, you know, pick the best plan that's based on your needs. >> poppy and victor, you get an idea of what things look like and how different one state is from the next. south carolina to kentucky to maryland. we're packing up and ready to go home. hope that will shed a bit more light on health care. >> cnn chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta, also the bearer of good news. you can watch more with him at

4:00 p.m. coming up, guns, drugs and hit men for sale on the internet. in this weekend's impact your world, may know him from the hit series "the office," but rainn wilson is helping girls go to school around the world. >> hi, i'm rainn wilson. together, we can make an impact on educating women and girls all around the globe. >> phyllis, my sister, like my great great grandmother. >> when i started getting well known on "the office," i got inundated with requests to do things for various charities. i had an opportunity to explore what was most important to me in my heart and what could make the greatest impact in the world.
5:49 am
the foundation supports educational initiatives around the world in 15 countries and in the united states. they target women and girls and that's how you transform a community. they are the most at-risk population through most of the developing world. targeting them to empower them and educate them is really the most crucial thing. also, they find grassroots educational programs that are already working, but are underfunded and come in to bring the support to help those organizations grow and thrive and flourish and move forward. join the movement. impact your world at cnn.com/impact.

federal authorities this week shutdown a web site known as silk road. part craigslist and amazon. it was an online marketplace where users could sell or buy guns or drugs or hire hitmen. it is far from the only site on the web as laurie segall reports. >> reporter: he is picking up something from the post office. not the typical package. inside? drugs. >> that is ecstasy. >> reporter: welcome to the growing dark side of the internet. in a couple of clicks, drugs. peter, whose name has been changed, as us to alter his identity. >> it is powdered mushrooms. you say you want to buy 250 milligrams. you buy just like any other place online.
5:54 am
you end up with a shopping cart. >> reporter: the feds are cracking down. the alleged leader arrested. peter is familiar with the site. >> things i bought are generally l.s.d. that is the hardest one to find. >> reporter: users sign up and the only currency accepted is bitcoin. >> the idea is it is not traceable. >> if you buy bitcoins on the street or things like that, it becomes untraceable. >> the internet gets darker, according to "peter." >> this is the same kind of thing. a drug category from different things if you are interested in looking for l.s.d., you select the l.s.d. apparently on this site, you can
5:55 am
literally buy guns. ak-47. ar-15. >> reporter: we were shown screen shots of hitmen. they promised to kill. "peter" did not use that option. he only used to buy drugs. now that it is gone, are you bummed? >> yeah. >> reporter: it is not necessarily an end game. >> they killed the server. they did not take down the technology that is used to make it happen. >> reporter: a game of whack-a-mole in the dark corners of the web. what do you think of it taken down? >> i think people are going to be fearful of using the services for a while. i think there will be discussions on what happened and what went wrong and how to improve on it and later on, newer versions will pop up and regain the trust that's probably
5:56 am
dissipating right now. >> what a fascinating story. laurie segall joins us from new york. laurie, the big question is the feds. do you get a sense they have any handle on this? >> reporter: it took them two years to take down silk road. they were in there and undercover, but "peter" said in our piece, it is difficult to infiltra infiltrate. when they infiltrate it, these guys get better. this is going to be a tough one to really get in front of. a lot of times, poppy, they are playing catch up. >> who is better at the technology. great report, laurie, i appreciate it. victor. thank you for starting your morning with us. "new day saturday" continues after a quick break. [ male ann] this is brad. his day of coaching begins with knee pain, when... [ man ] hey, brad, want to trade the all-day relief of two aleve for six tylenol?
5:57 am
what's the catch? there's no catch. you want me to give up my two aleve for six tylenol? no. for my knee pain, nothing beats my aleve. no. if yand you're talking toevere rheuyour rheumatologistike me, about trying or adding a biologic. this is humira, adalimumab. this is humira working to help relieve my pain. this is humira helping me through the twists and turns. this is humira helping to protect my joints from further damage. doctors have been prescribing humira for over ten years. humira works by targeting and helping to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to ra symptoms. for many adults, humira is proven to help relieve pain and stop further joint damage. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred.
5:58 am
before starting humira , your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. ask your doctor if humira can work for you. this is humira at work.
5:59 am
6:00 am
good morning, everyone. i'm poppy harlow. >> i'm victor blackwell. 9:00 on the east coast. 6:00 on the west coast. this is "new day saturday." a lot happening across the country when it comes to weather. >> a lot. >> let's start in the plain states where people are feeling both anxious and relieved this morning. [ siren ] >> you hear the sirens? as many as 18 twisters touched down in iowa and south dakota and nebraska. in nebraska, a dozen homes were
6:01 am
destroyed, but no one was killed. it is rare to see a tornado at this time of year, but it is not unheard of. the good news is the american red cross is sending teams in to the area to help cope with the storm's aftermath. the storm knocked out power to half of the residents of rapid city, south dakota. nebraska not the only stag pumm weather. from california to the midwest to the gulf of mexico. rough weather is sweeping across the country. >> that is why we have meteorologist alexandra steele here with us in the cnn weather center in atlanta. so, some states literally look like they were hit by a blizzard in early october after this early winter snowstorm. is more snow on the way for them? >> it is. another 15 to 20 inches. it is a weather trifecta across the country. from historic snow to tornadoes to a fire threat. let's begin the trifecta with wyoming and the snow there. more is expected today. especially eastern wyoming.
6:02 am
bull's-eye today, rapid city, south dakota. 15 to 20 inches. making it a top ten snowfall for the record books most likely. the winds exacerbating that. blizzard conditions are probable there. to tornadoes we go. long violent tornadoes. we saw that yesterday. conditions atmospherically were ripe for this. 18 prelim reports in iowa, nebraska and south dakota. you heard victor say it is uncomm uncommon, but not unheard of. we had 11 in october of 2001. the national weather service is doing a post-storm survey today to assess the damage. to the fire threat we go in california. certainly one of the worst seasons we could see. october is note worthy for california wildfires. santa ana winds howls. red flag warnings are up. winds could possibly blow any
6:03 am
small fire out of control. already laguna park with 77-mile-an-hour winds. in l.a. county, 52-mile-an-hour winds there. we have myriad issues, poppy and victor, then not to mention the gulf of mexico. >> wild weather weekend. thank you, alexandra. let's go to the gulf where the storm is creeping closer to the shore. >> people are getting ready for the roughest weather they will see this year. let's go to indra petersons with more in pensacola, florida. what should people there expect? >> reporter: you know, that is the key. things are changing. it doesn't mean we're out of the woods just yet. let's talk about the change. yesterday, we were on the bor r borderline of a very strong tropical storm or making
6:04 am
landfall of a weak category 1 hurricane. this morning, the winds are down to 40 miles an hour. that puts us on the borderline of a strong tropical depression at 39 miles an hour which is a tropical storm. either way, we are still talking about the pretty big effects. morgan city, louisiana, they are under a tropical storm warning. within the next 36 hours, they will see very strong winds, 40-to-50-mile-an-hour gusts. heavy rain and think about the area. we have seen so much rain already for the season, the flooding concerns will be high. even with the small amount of rain because you will get so much in a short period of time. the big question is what is going? why is this guy breaking apart? it slowed down significantly. it is making its way north at 8 miles per hour. it is literally being ripped apart. you see a tiny circulation going straight north. what you see on the radar is ripped to the east with strong winds above. dry air is filling in.
6:05 am
the big question is, can it get over this speed bump and starts to make its way northeast like it is expected to do? if that happens and it is expected, it will start to hold together a bit more. we're not going to have the conditions ripping it apart. that is the concern. that is the reason we talk about it weakening. we are not out of the woods. people need to realize strong winds and heavy rain and trees uprooted. >> people have to take it seriously. indra, i appreciate it. thank you so much. in new york, police have two bikers in custody accused in the invol involvement with the clash of the suv driver this week. >> one man in the video is the man you see smashing out the suv window. we have margaret conley in new york. margaret, what else do we know about these men? >> reporter: victor, two bikers turned themselves in.
6:06 am
they are in custody. the incident took place at west 178th street. the west side highway is blocks away from us. the bikers said they will gather here on the corner where we are standing. we can see four police cars protectively. the investigators are still looking into what happened. the motorcyclist seen here smashing the window with his helmet with the family inside has been identified. authorities found the person who shot the helmet cam video. alexian lien was driving along the highway. he struck a motorcycle that slowed in front of him. injuring the driver. the bikers hit and spiked the car's tires. as lien escaped, he ran into one more biker, who was critically injured. that is when the motorcyclists
6:07 am
gave chase cornering the suv and beating and slashing lien in front of his wife and 2-year-old daughter. we returned to the scene with the retired police officer lou palumbo. >> they shut the road down. >> he puts the blame on the motorcyclists. >> see them driving normal in the center lane. you are about to see this motorcycle operator pull in front. he will slow down and turn and look back at him. what precisely were you thinking at that moment that you thought that would be appropriate? >> reporter: could the suv driver have done anything differently? >> in my opinion, he was in fear for his life. he had a baby any his car. i don't think he believed he had any other option. >> reporter: if someone, the average person driving down the freeway, what is the advice? >> call 911, number one and then try to yield the right of way to the bikes. the issue here is really the volume of motorcycles.
6:08 am
the issue here is the operation of the motorcycles. >> reporter: now, there is one more twist to the story and that there was an off-duty police officer in the group riding among the motorcycles. the question remains as to why it took him four days to come forward with information. >> absolutely. a lot of questions. margaret, i appreciate the reporting. we are now also hearing from the man who witnessed the beating. stepped in and helped stop the attack on the suv driver. >> his name is sergio. he spoke exclusively with cnn's anderson cooper. >> you were actually standing between one of the guys hitting the guy with his helmet and the man on the floor, the driver? you stood between them? >> yeah. there were many. >> were the motorcyclists saying anything back to you? >> yeah, one of them was screaming saying with the helmet
6:09 am
on top of him. he said no, because i tell him please stop. let him go. one of them, a short guy, he said no because he rammed one of us. i didn't understand because i did not know what happened before. >> he was saying the driver ran over one of the motorcycles. >> that is what i heard him saying. when i -- i didn't want to talk to him or engage in any situation that happened before. i kept saying the same thing. i stood my ground. i looked in their eyes and they looked at me. basically, there was a tense moment of maybe a couple of seconds looking at each other. they somehow got -- i don't know. they stopped. somehow they stopped. >> well at least he stepped in and helped as much as he could.
6:10 am
we will keep you updated on the story throughout the day. it would be nice to tell you this morning that the government is open. >> yeah, yeah. >> they worked it out overnight while you were sleeping. can't do that. >> if we did, it would be a dream. no deal in washington. day five of the government shutdown. we will tell you where things stand. we will go live to the heartland to hear what americans have to say about congress and the shutdown. mom, dad told me that cheerios is good for your heart,

6:14 am
congress voted to give back pay to furloughed workers. aga again, day five of the government shutdown. cnn's athena jones joins from us the capitol. >> reporter: we do expect this to pass. this is something the white house has already said that the president supports and will sign. we expect that bill to pass in the house later on this morning. the senate to pass it and go to the president's desk and he will sign it. i should say the house is going on a measure to allow military chaplains to allow military services to members during the shutdown. it is not a smaller spending bill, but they hope to pass today. i can tell you the furlough back pay is a big issue. the hundreds of thousands of workers affected if they pass and sign this bill, as expected, they will get a paycheck once the government reopens. it is the only positive movement we have seen on the hill as we enter the fifth day of the
6:15 am
shutdown. both sides dug in holding firm. democrats are repeatedly saying they want house speaker boehner to bring to the house floor for a vote, a spending bill funding the entire government and reopening the doors of the entire government. house republicans don't want to pass the bill that doesn't include some changes to obama care. listen to what house republican congresswoman michelle bachmann has to say. >> we hold the credit card for the country. we hold the purse. we hold the decision in the house of representatives. the house of representatives, the most powerful house. we're the closest to the people. we're elected every two years. we decide how much to raise taxes or lower taxes. we decide the spending. that's our job. >> reporter: many members of the american public are saying congress do your job. they are not pleased with the fact this shutdown is continuing and so we expect that anger to
6:16 am
continue. we are waiting for some sort of movement or positive change here. back to you. >> athena jones at the capitol. what you saw was activity on the house floor as they vote or continue to debate now on this bill to give back pay to the furloughed workers whenever this ends. there is a plan to make sure they get their money back. more than 800,000 furloughed workers. athena said it is expected to pass the senate and the president's signature. president obama called out republicans again this morning over the government shutdown. >> he did not mince his words. we have jill dougherty at the white house. >> reporter: he started with soft words over the shutdown and he let loose. >> take that vote. stop this farce. end this shutdown now. the american people don't get to
6:17 am
demand ransom exchange for doing their job. neither does congress. they don't get to hold our economy hostage over a settled law. >> reporter: and also you know you have from speaker boehner much of the same very strong rhetoric. he is saying this is an epic battle. the republicans and everyone should hang tough. victor. >> jill dougherty at the white house for us. this conversation will continue. we heard comments from secretary of state john kerry. >> from across the globe. >> okay. thank you very much. americans are angry and fed up with congress. >> they are not afraid to share those feelings with washington. our ted rowlands in washington. you are outside of d.c. and away from politics. what are they telling you about the shutdown? >> reporter: well, they
6:18 am
disgusted, poppy and victor. we have been going to other cities the last five days and we heard the same thing. people are angry for obvious reasons. this was on everybody's calendar. this should have been avoided. both parties are to blame. people out here think. people, they are used to the bickering in washington. they are used to the fact that nothing gets done because the lawmaker's goal is to attack the other party. when something like this happens where there are furloughed workers and the furloughed workers getting back pay, but what about the ancillary folks working outside the parks and contractors? we talked to people in st. louis. they were livid. 48 people at the st. louis arch. non-government workers are out of money and out of a paycheck until this is figured out. this morning in kansas city, we have been talking to people and last night. take a listen to what they had to say. >> lawmakers should go back to work and they should deny pay --
6:19 am
they should refuse pay for themselves as long as they are denying pay for the federal workers. >> i would like to tell them to go back to work, okay? as far as obama care, if they don't want people to have insurance, they should give up their insurance. >> i think it is asinine that they let this happen. i understand why it happened. i hope they get it cleared up soon. >> message to capitol hill? >> turn it back on. we need the government. >> quit bickering. make a decision. help out the people. >> reporter: and that's really the theme. quit bickering. i tell you what, it has been interesting talking to people. there are some people who don't care. there are some people who align with their party affiliation and blame the other party. the lion's share of people are
6:20 am
