from dysfunction to destiny in a tense battle, auburn claims the s.e.c. battle over missouri. will they go all the way? the bcs title is as stakes. are you waking up from a football hangover? wasn't good for me. >> not so much. >> not so good. >> hope it was better for everybody else. >> michelle turner, our entertainment correspondent is excited. she loves auburn. >> good for her. congratulations to her. good morning to all of you. i hope the morning has been treating you well. >> 6:00 is the early hour on the east coast, 3:00 out west. new day sunday. >> let me tell you something, if you're one of those winter wonderland people, days your day. >> yeah. the if the mere thought of ice and snow makes you shiver and you're pretty clumsy like me, stay inside. a fierce storm is going to spread ice and storm from
northern kentucky to washington, d.c. today. before the day is over, new york, philly, boston, all expected to get slammed. the storm hit the dallas area hard saturday. you remember pictures like this. miles of drivers just stuck on i-35. some of them were there up to 10 hours. the storm led to hundreds of canceled flights and thousands lost power. >> a man skidded into a lake and rescue workers couldn't reach him fast enough. he had died by the time they pulled him out of the water. as much as seven deaths. dallas and smu played football, look at this, in a nearly empty stadium. dallas tops out at 20 degrees. that's the coldest december on record there. in memphis officials canceled
the same marathon. you can cancel it. we're not going to stop. we're running for more than ourselves. >> you train as long as it takes for 26.2, somebody is going to run it. >> western virginia is likely to get the brunt of this ice. >> cnn in roanoke this morning. okay. tory, is the city ready for this? >> reporter: so victor, and christy, they are used to winter weather. when we talk about a three letter word, ice, it's never a good situation. they are expecting a thick coating of ice. what does that mean? dangerous on roadways, power lines and trees, could mean power outages. they are taking preparations in the area. they have pretreated some of the major roadways. at the airport they decided to place crews on 24-hour shifts. they have all the equipment ready. the thing everybody is going to
be watching. this is going to make a huge difference. the temperature here. probably reading closer to 35, 36 degrees. we are told in the next few hours or so it's going to drop below freezing. that means we could see more wintry mix, more sleet. i have to tell you, it's a far cry. it's colder out here. it's tough. >> we used to work at w cbs in palm beach. 40 was the top story. never that cold. >> the two of you are having that moment remembering the palm trees and sun. good luck with that. >> enjoy it is as much as you can. thank you so much. the big ice storm from roanoke. >> lets bring in someone else, as my mother would call it, with thin blad. jennifer gray from minimum to
atlanta. >> florida folks. you remember the palm trees, too. it's cold even in atlanta for me. we are dealing with the freezing rain, the ice, the snow over the next 24 to 48 hours. yeah, the ice is really what's going to cause a problem. we are doing to see even already starting to pick up a little bit of a change over right outside of nashville, even outside of memphis may be picking up just a tad. if you zoom in on some of these locations, see snow to the north, freezing rain, ice, rain to the south. hasn't hit december yet as you saw but only a matter of hours before we start to see that push into the d.c. area and on into the northeast. this is an hour by hour forecast. sunday more than around 8:00, south of the city. as you go through the afternoon, we really start to see the ice pick up late this afternoon into this evening. then as it pushes up into the northeast we're really planning on more of a wintry mix for
places like new york city and boston. if you're looking at the snow totals, we are going to see a possibility of up to 5 inches in the west. as you head over on the east coast, d.c., new york, not going to see anything more than about an inch or two of snow and possibly half an inch accumulation of ice, guys. >> all right. the snow beats the ice. meteorologist jennifer gray. thank you. >> thank you. i don't know if you heard about this. there's been a tragedy aboard a delta air lines flight. a 16-year-old on the flight and suffered a medical emergency of some sort. the plane made an emergency landing in spokane, but the teenager died. we know the teenager was traveling with his mother and they were joining his father, who was a soldier, for christmas. the medical examiner said it appears he died of natural causes but an autopsy will be done tomorrow.
certainly thinking of that family. all across south africa today, millions of people gathering in churches, mosques, tem temples, synagogues, all to honor nelson mandela. >> the congregation at one church singing in tribute. president obama and first lady michelle obama will attend today's memorial service, so will former president george w. bush and bill clinton. >> joining us from johannesburg we know about the president, former president, tell us who will be at tuesday's memorial and sunday's state funeral. >> reporter: well, we know at least 90,000 south africans will cram into that saoccer stadium tuesday to honor nelson mandela. joining them, in addition to the u.s. presidents, will be a number of heads of states.
the reason i can't give you the exact number is the south africans don't know yet due to sensitivities around traditional beliefs about not talking about this. the embassy was really only given details about the events yesterday. david cameron, the zimbabwean president will be, israelis will be here, too. it's going to be like the united nations in that football stadium on tuesday. beyond that the actual funeral will take place under a large tent in the middle of the hills, an amphitheater of natural beauty, a very remote rural area where nelson mandela grew up. there will be a huge tent, about 4,000 people will attend that. mostly friends, close family and political figures in south
africa with a few vips who make that trip down there. potentially what we're seeing is a very protracted, how do you describe it, continuous prayer service for nelson mandela. it's 10 days worth of memories and singing. everybody feels like one day isn't enough. they need 10 days to send him home. >> robin, we're seeing this huge crowd here gathered with the flags. we can hear the singing in the background. this is a national day of prayer. can you tell us about the tens of thousands of people -- here is the shot -- that's just an estimate, tens of thousands of people we're seeing in this shot here. >> reporter: you know, it's something extraordinary. i'm south african. i've been trying to think what compares to these unbelievable scenes of people walking, bringing their children along, walking and walking to come and pay tribute here outside his
house in soweto, across this nation. you have these extraordinary themes of people coming together. really the last time i can think of something like this, this magnitude, the sense of occasion, the sense of importance was when we all voted in those first democratic elections in 1994, voted in nelson mandela. this is a national event that i think people will be moved for. people want to be here. they are bringing their children to be part of the celebration of his life. >> what a memory they are all making taking for those kids. thank you so much for letting us know what's going on there. >> national and international moment for people around the world who will be traveling to south africa. there is a sheriff in south carolina. he's refusing to lower the american flag to honor nelson mandela. >> president obama ordered the flags be lowered to half-staff until sunset tomorrow. pickens county sheriff rick clark says he doesn't think it's
right. >> to show a sign of respect for what nelson mandela has done, i have no problem with them lowering it in south africa, in their country. in our country, it should be the people who sacrifice for our country. >> it is rare for the president to order flags at half-staff. george bush did it for pope john paul in 2005. bill clinton did it for former prime minister. it goes back to when president johnson lowered the flags for winston church hill. coming up last night, florida state didn't just beat duke, it crushed them. check out the quarterback there heurdling over defense, touchdown, victory. highlights, upsets for all of saturday's big games. >> detained in north korea for more than a month, now an american war veteran returns home to the u.s. as a free man.

for plutonium, which, of course, is a potential fuel for a number bottom. iran dismissed all these concerns. their position is this facility is only for production of medical isotopes. they also argue, this is important, even if this place is activated one day, they don't have the necessary reprocessing plant to perform nuclear waste into plutonium. even so, this facility has been enough of a concern that during last month's negotiations the world powers insisted on a clause in the geneva agreement demanding iran not to activate this facility. iran has agreed, victor, and now they have agreed to allow iaea to inspector the facility. it's part of an unprecedented and remarkable campaign to be more open. of course there are some in western capitals who are still suspicious of what iran is doing, victor. >> all right. cnn international correspondent. thank you so much.

priest's collar. i left it outside. >> he dead pans and dresses in leather. he name drops famous friends when he talks about belief. >> sometimes he does what he does. i don't know why kevin durant was born a 7 footer. >> attracting a lot of followers. 5,000 worshippers every sunday. >> we have no idea what we're doing anyway, hashtag. >> speaking of hashtag, he's pictured all over instagram with justin bieber. he says he's the unofficial chaplain for new york knicks. he baptizes church members in rooftop pools of trendy hotels and check out the band. on a recent night in newark, new jersey, 9,000 people came out to see hill song united. the music is about jesus and it's wildly popular. two albums released this year debuted on the billboard top 200 list, one of them at number five. the front man joel houston is the co-founder of hill song nyc.
>> the people coming here, buying these thousands of tickets, are they coming to church or are they coming to a concert? >> well, a lot of them probably think they are coming to a concert. we like to think of it as church. >> the band grew out of a australian mega chum founded by houston's parents 30 years ago. hill song claims to have 57,000 followiers with outposts all over the world including the first one in the united states in the middle of manhattan where mega churches haven't found a footing before. >> why did you want to bring hill song to new york? >> our church fits here. we're kind of like a group of vagabonds out of our depth. new york has a lot of people like that, working hard, dreaming big and hoping for the best. >> he says he doesn't preach any one religion, he just wants people to find a relationship with jesus. it's okay by him if people are drawn in because they are fans of the band or they are hoping to see one of his celebrity friends. he rejeb the idea that his
church is popular just because it seems trendy. >> my mind hipster lives in williamsburg, effortlessly weird and cool but they float around. that's my definition of a hipster, so i don't think that's us. >> he says it's open to mp. there are plans to bring australian mega church to more american cities. cnn, new yor xxxx 7:00, grab your orange juice, coffee, sit back. >> or snuggie. i'm victor blackwell, good to have you with us. more out weather. new day sunday. everybody, well, a lot of people, are dealing with much cooler temperatures. >> i think the high in atlanta is only 47 today. the question is, do you really
want to go out? >> millions of people in the east and in the path of this huge winter storm, early winter storm, prewinter storm. it's not winter yet. look for ice and snow to spread from northern kentucky to washington, d.c. before the day is over. new york, philly, boston all expected to get slammed. the storm hit the dallas area. look at this. >> wow. >> this is saturday. miles of drivers were stuck on i-35. some there up to 10 hours. the storm led to hundreds of canceled flights, hundreds of thousands of people lost power. >> one man we know lost control of his truck on i-35 there, skidded into a lake. rescue drivers just couldn't reach him fast enough. he died before they were able to pull him out of the truck, pull the water out of the truck. a total of seven deaths are being blamed on this storm we know. >> go to cnn in roanoke, virginia. tory, the last time we spoke with you, the temperatures were a little too warm to freeze
over. are they deepg toward -- dipping toward that freezing mark? >> reporter: what we're seeing in roanoke, this is the downtown historic area. we're seeing off again on again sleet. we just talked with virginia department of transportation. they are saying north of us, there's slight icing. they say some of the bridge in the area, temperatures a little bit too warm meaning bridges aren't icing over, which is a good thing. that's the big concern. they are expecting a thick coat of ice in this area. what that means, there's a potential for power outages if it gathers on power lines, trees, things like that. they have taken precautionary measures pretreating some of the major roadways. as i mentioned a little bit earlier, watching this closely here, the thermometer. right now it dipped down, closer to 35 in the area. still a little bit warm. victor, i can tell you it feels cold out here and people are
definitely concerned about the potential for this ice. a lot of people staying home today, which is a good thing to do. >> good idea. >> interesting, i was looking at your local report, some of the local reports there, saying ice was a concern. then it was interesting. they said don't put a lot of stuff in your refrigerator because the power will go out. can't you just put it outside at that point? >> you can. >> tory, does it feel like it's getting colder or no? >> it does feel like it's getting colder. we drove up to a mountain in between our live shots. it's a little bit colder up there and they are starting to see a little icing on the mountain that over looks the city of roanoke. it seems like temperatures are dropping. we have to wait and see if we're going to get that wintry mix and sleet and freezing rain. things we're expecting to see throughout the day. >> rocky road on the back porch. it will be all right.
cnn, live in roanoke, virginia this morning. lets bring in meteorologist jennifer gray to expand our conversation about the weather. >> she knows how bad it's going to get. >> here is roanoke. freezing precipitation is to the south. that's continuing to make its way to the northeast. i think you'll get a wintry mix, rain, freezing rain as well. a little bit of snow up to the north. the surrounding areas definitely. then as you look to washington, d.c., it's going to take a couple more hours as we head into a little later this afternoon and into this evening, that's when d.c. is expected to see the brunt of it. this is 10:00 p.m. for tonight. freezing rain, freezing precipitation around the d.c. area. then as we make our way into the northeast overnight tonight into monday morning, expect more of the same. we could see anywhere from a quarter of an inch to half an inch accumulation of ice and possible snow mixed in as well. then by tuesday, look, more rain for the southeast.
unfortunately. what we're dealing with for snow accumulation, up to five inches. that's mainly areas out west. we'll see possible one to two inches of snow, d.c. and new york. also the ice is going to be a problem. anywhere from half an inch in southern sections and make your way to the northeast possible quarter inch. that's where you see the big problems, power outages, things like that, guys. >> all righty. meteorologist jennifer gray. thank you so much for the heads up, jennifer. >> this morning korean war veteran detained in north korea for more than a month is waking up at home in his own bed. 85-year-old merrill newman returned home yesterday. he was pulled off a plane, detained in october just as his tour group was getting ready to fly back home. >> it's been a great home com g coming. i'm tired but ready to be with my family. thank you all for the support.
>> newman also called for the release of another man, this man, kenneth bay. the american has been in north korean custody since last year. we're learning more about the american delegation who will be going to south africa. president obama and three former presidents will be at nelson mandela's memorial service in south africa on tuesday. >> all across the country right now, millions of people are in churches and mosques and temples and synagogues to on are nelson mandela. in the biggest catholic church today, joining us now from johannesburg, david, we're wondering what are you seeing today when it comes to memorializing nelson mandela? >> well, christi, throughout this country it's been a day for people to flock to their places of worship and remember this
great man here in south africa. a man who did so many for so many individual people. he did so much. in this church behind me, so steeped in history here in south africa, it's a catholic church which was very linked to the struggle against apartheid, even children who fought against authorities in the '70s fled to this church. there's still bullet holes in the windows remembering what happened here. mostly people are remembering the legacy of nelson mandela, singing praises for him, singing both christian songs and songs of the anti-apartheid struggle. i've been really struck what a deep resonance he has with every member of the public i've spoken to, old and young, white and black. it's really a universal love for this man in south africa. >> david, we've seen so many informal and formal displays, celebration, mourning. we know there are more to come over the next few days. can you tell us how who is
expected to attend the memorial event? also the state funeral. >> well, so many people coming from outside. hundreds, perhaps even thousands of dignitaries, celebrities and just well wishers flying into south africa. of course millions of south africans will join them in the official and unofficial event. president obama, michelle obama as well as a whole host of leaders from america and others will come. obviously there's such a deep tie between the u.s. and south africa when it came to the anti-apartheid struggle. many americans feel deeply connected to this country and what this country went through. all those free mandela campaigns through the '80s and in the late '70s, many americans of a certain age will remember that time very fondly and the impact they had in helping this man go free. now we are memorializing his death and his life and certainly
south africans appear to be welcoming those people coming in from elsewhere with open arms. the sheer numbers will mean a big logistical challenge for the country. >> can i imagine. david, thank you so much. we appreciate it. here is a twist in the u.s. a sheriff in south carolina is refusing to lower the american flag to honor nelson mandela. president obama ordered flags to half-staff until sunset tomorrow. pickens county sheriff says he doesn't think it's right. >> to show a sign of respect for what nelson mandela has done, i have no problem with lowering it in south africa, in their country. but for our country, it should be the people, in my opinion, who have sacrificed for our country. >> now it is rare for a u.s. president to order flags lowered for a non-u.s. citizen but it has happened. george w. bush did it for pope john paul ii. that was in 2005 when he died. bill clinton did it for former israel prime minister rabin. the practice goes back to 1965
even when president johnson lowered flags for the death of winston church hill. still to come on "new day" a new clue in the case of a missing teenager in new hampshire. have you heard about this? we're going to talk live with the lead investigator. plus understanding the mandelas. we're going to speak to a cnn producer who knows the mandela family well and find out why winnie mandela's relationship to nelson is so complicated. ♪ [ male announcer ] this december,
fall in love with progressive's claims service. want to tell you about the search for new hampshire teen. officials report a letter from hernandez to her mother appears to be the real thing from her. >> hernandez vanished on the way home from school in october. police fear someone might be holding her against her will. >> fbi special agent karen ramsey in charge of this case and joining us by phone. thank you so much, agent ramsey for being with us. let me ask you something, it's reported she's believed to be held against her will. what makes you certain of that? >> honestly, we're not certain
of it but it is a great fear of ours. the fact remains in this investigation there are caters that could be consistent with abduction. then we get this letter, which we have verified and validated to the best of our ability with the information we have now that it did come from abigail. sadly that letter has not produced viable leads where she is now and who she might be with. who she might be with, this is a 15-year-old girl with no independent financial means and who has been able to essentially evade law enforcement detection for all this time. >> is there -- i know authorities want people to look out for her. you posted the missing person flyer and the pictures. is there any indication of where the letter was mailed, a post mark, specifically where people should be looking? >> we do know where the letter was postmarked. we do have a general sense of
that. we haven't released that simply because we do have fears of getting copy cat letters after this. we haven't released the post mark. we haven't released the actual letter itself because we're afraid other people might very chillingly and sadly copy cat a letter like this and mail them to her mom or authorities or what have you. we're hoping the letter stands on its own, but we know exactly what that letter was. should we get at one, we can easily validate and verify it's the same, in fact. >> let me ask you a question. are you in fear this may be a situation similar to what we saw in cleveland with ariel castro? >> that's our greatest fear. the fact remains, again, this is a 15-year-old girl. we had indications early on this could have been an abduction. we see this letter, which threw us for a loop in the investigation. we have had no contact since. it's a 15-year-old girl. we know even if she ran away
willingly, she certainly could be victimized afterwards. the national center for missing and exploited children has a statistic one in eight endangered runaways could become victims of forced sexual exploitation. have you that statistic. the fact remains she could have been abducted, held, manipulated by somebody with ill intent. >> we know that the victims in cleveland, even the victims in london, all of the missing persons who have been released or found in the last year or so, many of them watch television, had access to media. if this young girl, if abigail is watching, what's your advice to her? >> our advice has been consistent. if she's able to hear this message she has to remain strong. if she's able to contact law enforcement, she needs to do so immediately. if she's not able to contact law enforcement, she needs to know that law enforcement has not given up in this case
whatsoever. we continue to be very aggressive in everything we do. in fact, after our last press conference we got some dozen leads fairly quickly. every one was acted on almost immediately. we dispatched local, state, fbi investigators across new hampshire and massachusetts in the hope that, again, we could find her. >> well, fbi special agent we're so appreciative of the work you're doing in this case and others. thank you so much for giving us an update on what's happening there. still to come on "new day" the tumultuous relationship between winnie and nelson mandela. we'll tell you why so many people don't know much about winnie mandela and her fight against apartheid. ya know, with new fedex one rate you can fill that box and pay one flat rate. how naughty was he? oh boy...

a clip there from the movie "winnie mandela." she's had her story told in several films and books. many people don't fully understand the complicated relationship between her and her former husband nelson mandela, nor do we get the role she played in south africa's fight against apartheid, that she played, remember. cnn producer joins me now. i know that you just spoke with winnie recently. >> in johannesburg saturday a week ago. in fact, we were at mandela house, which is the first house mandela owned and the house he returned to after he spent 27 years in prison. so i was with winnie. when lou at the story, christi,
in 1968 they meet and marry. it's a great love story. a social worker at the time and not politicized. a couple of years later he's arrested, in '64, life in prison. do you know she does not see him for eight years, this no contact. >> in 1969 she herself is arrested and she's in solitary confinement for 18 months, severely tortured during that period. it's under the infamous apartheid antiterrorism act. in 1977 to '86, she is under house arrest in a remote village brumford, remote town in southern africa. this woman was relentlessly harassed. she really held the flag, held the mantle and kept his name very much in the press during the apartheid years. that's why she's known as mother of the nation. >> okay. thank you for helping us understand her role in that
fight. one of the things i think people cannot understand, they are very curious about, why were they married the whole time he was imprisoned. when he released, he divorced her. >> well, their political opinions were very different. mandela emerges conciliatory. she had a much more militant view. she said some very inflammatory things and involved in controversial activity. in long walk to freedom, he said she just had bad judgment but it was mainly different political views. she considered herself more radical. he wanting to be more embracing. he spoke about we are human through the humanity of others. she would have liked -- she lived through the stugel so much more than he did. he was in prison at the time. he always said my family suffered more than i did. >> recognize that. >> exactly. i spoke to their daughter together. the reason she likes the new
"long walk to freedom" she said this is the first film that highlights her mother's role in the struggle. there's a lot of controversy around winnie. as i said, people have very mixed opinions about her. her own children love her. christi, i spent a lot of time with her children they call her big mother. she's a very eloquent, very charming person, winnie. her story has yet in its full been told. >> looking forward to seeing more and hearing more. thank you so much. we appreciate it. great perspective. wow. victor. >> thanks, christi, an icy winter storm disrupts life for millions. icicles on the roof, power lines on the ground. the forecast next. >> lets check in with sanjay gupta for what's coming up at 7:30 eastern. good morning, sanjay. >> cyst issuing, it's a statistic i talk about all the time. someone denies every 19 minutes from an accidental prescription drug overdose.
