flights at la guardia this morning are cancelled. >> right. a lot of problems when it comes to transportation. that's still -- even though the travel ban has been lifted, getting around on the streets is difficult. flying i would check with the airlines before you even venture near an airport. on top of that, the rail service, the subways are running. they're underground, of course. anything aboveground rail service, too, is questionable. a lot of things that the governor can update us on transportation. chad meyers out there driving the streets of new york. as we mentioned, it's been about an hour since i traveled. are you seeing a lot of traffic out there, chad? >> reporter: people are moving, yes. people are definitely trying to get places. obviously, it's sunday morning. maybe people heading to church. many of the sunday morning things they need to do. people aren't walking for the paper. i've noticed that. there aren't that many people out. if you're out you're shoveling. you're trying to dig your sidewalk out. those are the only people trying
to get anywhere on the roadways. there are sheets of ice under what was a very nice layer of 20 inches of snow. clearly ready to trudge through the snow. as the scrapers scrape off the snow, they created a sheen below it. that's a very dangerous place to walk. and, obviously, the cars are only going 15 to 20 miles per hour. if you're walking or not paying attention. as i was walking home from the live shot last night it was slick. under where it's been scraped there's just enough shine to create the ice down there. it's going to be a decent day today. we'll have a lot of sunshine and snow blinding conditions in so many spots. the brightness of the snow is very high. when the sunshines off the snow, it will be right in your eye as your driving. something else your eye is going to be the slop that comes off the roadways. make sure your washer fluid bottle is filled today. you'll need it as the sunshine happens and starts to melt the
stuff. >> reporter: as i look at the streets there, they're not a one lane. this is not a normal street, clearly. >> oh, yeah. >> reporter: this is a one-way street but we're still down in the village and to the right here there's another vespa buried in. you have to be careful trying to dig these things out today. one big nick from a snow shovel and the insurance company won't like it. it's going to be an archaeological dig trying to get the cars out. all the snow has been piled to one side of the street and if you happened to park on the unfortunate side. you are not buried, you're double buried, martin. >> reporter: all right. i see traffic there. especially on the other end of the street there starting to move along. it's quite clear. new york officials said that, yes, the travel ban is lifted, but if you don't have to go out don't go out.
as chad is showing us quite well, it is not a typical kind of scene when driving through the streets of new york. please, please be very careful. i want to show you another scene from the air. dulles airport, of course, in the d.c. area, and just lost that picture. you can just begin to see it looks like an incredible scene. pretty much covered with tons and tons of snow there. you're looking at it again. you can see that the crews that are working very hard. they're setting up the geysers of snow. they have the snow blowers going. just look at that. and it's like looking at a highway in colorado almost on a mountain pass. so clearly they have their work cut out for them today, which is why, even though the sun is out, people have to be aware that getting around not just snapping your fingers and goes back to normal. they've got on those roadways a lot they have to clear. many of the airports, especially here in new york remained open.
but that isn't to say that flights were coming and going. they were not. the operations were curtained or cut off completely by the airlines themselves. so this is the issues. they've got a long way to go when it comes to clearing not just the runways but consider the parking lots for everybody and there's going to be a huge backlog of people who are originally scheduled to go somewhere and now they're not. so christi, i'll hand it back to you. people have to be patient for some time. >> they are and, you know, this is coming at an interesting time. a lot of people need to get back to work. things are looking at their to list it has to be done. i'm wondering as we're waiting to hear from governor cuomo, and we were saying that the elevated subway lines have been halted as well. help people understand who do not live in new york how imperative those traffic patterns and those resources are to folks in the city. >> reporter: public
transportation is essential to life in new york city. i mean, many people -- you have to have it. simply because there's not room for vehicles and it's a way of life. the fact that the subway is going and had continued even during the storm was a great blessing to people. they can still move about under ground. but you're right, they come tomorrow morning, the above rail, these are the people with the longer commutes that come in from the outlying areas they rely on that. i'm waiting to hear what the governor has to say regarding that. so many people rely on it. yet we know that, you know, with ice on the lines, the third rail getting covered. all those things have tremendous impacts. the streets are there but the last thing you want is everybody saying for i can't take the train i'm taking a car. that would be a nightmare of traffic. that's why public transportation getting it back is key. >> very good point. thank you so much, martin. i want to get to miguel marquez live from baltimore. we saw him waist deep, i think,
almost, yesterday. he's clearly gotten out of that situation. miguel, what is it like where you are now? >> reporter: it is snowy. you heard about the calm before the storm. this is like the simple gorgeousness after it. look at downtown baltimore. we couldn't see across the harbor here yesterday at this time. now it is a perfect, perfect view. i'm going to show you the businesses along the way how they are piled with snow. the amount of snow around these businesses that has drifted on to them. it's incredible. but it looks just like a perfection this morning. they're meant to have a giant snowball fight here. it sound like baltimore may have broken a record in all of this. the most snow they ever got was in 2003, 26.8 inches. the unofficial readings around town are close to that. bwi broke a record south of the
city they got 29.5 inches. broke the record by about 14 inches. so just a massive amount of storm. now the clean up. it's going to be close to freezing today. maybe just above. maybe a little bit of melt. close to freezing tomorrow as well. the plows are out there working. they lifted the stage three emergency procedure where all cars were banned from the roads. now you can get back on the roads, if you have the proper vehicle. so far very quiet in baltimore. i think people enjoying their sunday. it's fortunate it was on a weekend. we're looking forward to a giant me ball fight right here. >> please, don't invite people. you are going to get slammed. somebody is going to see you where you are. >> reporter: i think i'll be a giant target. i'm predicting. >> i have the feeling you can defend yourself. it's all right. thank you so much, miguel. we appreciate it. let's go back to new york and jason carol is in central park. i saw you yesterday, jason, and
it is snowing and it's crazy. there were people all around you and they were laughing and having fun, and, you know, we have to remember it's a serious situation. fourteen people have died in this storm overall. however, where you are it looks like there are some people out there, yes? >> reporter: yeah, there's some people out here, but at least so far this morning they're working. we're going to be seeing a lot of this throughout the day. people breaking out the shovels as the big dig gets underway as new yorkers wake up and get out of their homes. a lot of them will be heading out shoveling to get their cars and sidewalks. christi, this is what we're seeing all over the city. buried cars, buried sidewalks. fortunately the streets looking much better. the city getting a thumbs up from the people we spoke to about getting the salt spreaders out on the streets and the plows on the streets.
the travel ban lifted just about an hour or so ago. still slow moving out here. in terms of central park which is right up the street there breaking a record 26.8 inches making it the second largest recorded snowstorm in new york city's history. much talk about travel, and that's going a situation here in new york city today, whether you're aboveground or below ground. i was hearing you talking a little bit earlier about that. trying to take the subway to work this morning, even though they are running below ground, you're looking at really serious delays. it at least 30 or 40 minutes on some of the lines. allow extra time. in terms of the airports, again, still looking at massive delays there. so when the governor speaks later this morning, we'll be hearing, i'm sure, about that. travel in the city trying to get around. it is slow going. the city, though, waking up to sunshine, clear streets, and a lot of work to dig out.
martin? >> jason caroll, thank you very much. still work to be done. we want to check on the rising waters. a.m. was the time of high tide, or at least in the area. morris sanchez has been keeping check for us. >> reporter: hey, martin. you may recall a half hour we spoke to you. it is not nearly as bad as it is now. the water continuing to come into the neighborhood rising and rising. similar to yesterday. it pales in comparison. yesterday we saw a foot if not more yesterday come over the edge and getting into residencrs here. i want to show you something peculiar. there are different elevations here. the street is somewhat dry in patches. the water inundating several parts of the street as we go down further east.
many of the side streets here in neighborhoods were totally flooded yesterday. it was very difficult to get through them, but today we're dealing with only a couple of inches compared to that foot of water that we saw so quickly rush in. very important to point out, flood watches are set to expire about noon today as the wind continues to shift from the storm. all of this very important to point out. neighbors keep telling us is water coming from the bay. it's not ocean water that is being sprayed into the neighborhoods. it's a bay. this is going to continue happening as they continue getting storms in this area. one man we spoke to about every nor'easter they see something like this. what made it especially worse yesterday was the fact we were dealing with the coincidence that the storm was coming in as there was full moon. the tide was extra high. we're within about a half hour or hour of real high tide on the bay. it comes in a little bit later than it does on the ocean side.
we're watching and waiting. >> all right. thank you so much for putting the context on that. we'll continue to monitor the scene through you. meanwhile, christi, it's looking a lot better than 24 hours ago. if you remember, it was just a nightmare. now the sun has returned and people are starting the job of reclaiming new york city for themselves. it's going to be a long, difficult process a lot of information yet to come from government officials. >> that's right. we'll hear from governor cuomo at 9:45. hopefully you'll get some answers there in new york about how they're going to move forward, martin. thank you. when we come back, i want to let you in on breaking news that we're hearing overseas. a turkish airlines flight diverted from houston to ireland. donald trump getting a lot of attention this morning. we're going to tell you what he said that has so many people in a tizzy. this is where i met your grandpa.

i work here at my namfive star auto care. in rocklin california. a lot of thought was put into the change to solar and we couldn't have done it without pg&e. pg&e is very committed to clean energy. working with five star auto care we looked at how we could make their business more energy efficient and save them money in the long run. with solar we have saved about 85% on our energy cost. with this extreme drought we're using the savings from our solar system to save every last drop of water. if you are looking for ways to save energy, your first step is to call pg&e. together, we're building a better california.
new this morning with just about a week to go until the first caucuses in iowa. the "des moines register" has given the coveted public endorsement to marco rubio and democrat hillary clinton. joining me live is mark priesten. it's interesting because all the paper interviewed all with the exception of donald trump and ted cruz and they both declined. is that their way of trying to stay in the anti-establishment wing? >> sure. no question in very unlikely you would have seen ted cruz or donald trump receive their endorsement. ted cruz, in fact, last week the governor of iowa a republican said they shouldn't try to give iowa to ted cruz. he would rather see somebody
else when the win republican nomination. to your point, they're trying to show they are, in fact, the anti-establishment candidates. it has done them well in iowa. >> let's talk about republican frontrunner donald trump. he's feeling pretty confident about support for his campaign. listen to what he said last night that has a lot of people talking this morning. >> my people are so smart. you know what else they say about my people? the polls? they say i have the most loyal people. where i can stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody and wouldn't lose any voters. okay. it's incredible. >> so i spoke to senator rand paul about this. he said trump -- i want to quote it here, is almost delusional about his own power. one of the things he does say is that he's number one in the polls and his people are fiercely loyal to him. that can't necessarily be disputed, right? >> no, no doubt.
i think you see donald trump, in many ways, tell you the truth. he's said a lot of things probably even worse than that in some cases. he continues to, you know, gain support and grow support. we tried to ask him afterwards what he meant by the comments and he wouldn't say anything. he was criticized as well. you said rand paul criticized him. glenn beck the well known conservative network owner endorsed ted cruz. he said donald trump shouldn't be president. you're seeing the battle between ted cruz and donald trump here in iowa. >> all right. and lastly, let's talk about michael bloomberg considering an independent presidential bid with this. it made me think it would be the battle of the billionaires. according to forbes, mr. bloomberg has nine times more wealth than donald trump does.
who benefits most, though? when you look at this. if bloomberg becomes an independent candidate, as they say would happen if it goes forward, who benefits most? democrats, republicans, even split? >> i think it remains to be seen. it depends who the republican and democratic nominees get put up. the story was broken by the "new york times." they're saying that bloomberg would spend a billion dollars to try to win as an independent. an independent has never won in the united states. it's been a party nominee. trump yesterday when he was asked about bloomberg said he likes mike and he's a friend but they have different viewpoints on some of the major issues, particularly on gun control. he said he would welcome a bloomberg candidacy. according to reports cnn has confirmed them is that bloomberg would get into the race if donald trump and bernie sanders were the nominees. if it was hillary clinton, maybe somebody else in the republican side he wouldn't. bloomberg is definitely an interesting individual. once a democrat, became a
republican when he ran for governor of new york. then in his third term in new york he did something a lot of people had never done, actually, in bloomberg ran the city of new york city. if he were to run that would throw the race that is already in chaos now even into further turmoil and it would be interesting heading into november. >> as though it's not interesting enough at this point. it's an unconventional run that we've seen so far. mark preston, good to see you. i want to get to you the breaking news that is happening overseas of the turkish airlines flight diverted from houston is where it took off. it was supposed to go to istanbul. it was diverted to ireland because of some sort of threat. we have a live report for you. stay close. . first, cnn stefanie elam as a preview for this year's sun dance film festival for us. it's that time of the year with hollywood types leave the
palm trees behind, grab the parkas and come to utah. that means the parties, the glitz, and the glam. the real draw is the movies. >> it sets the tone for the year in culture and film and television. let's take brooklyn, for example. >> don't the italians -- >> it was seen last year. now a year later it's in the oscar race as a best picture candidate. >> stars can also get shine from sun dance. take "boyhood" and "whiplash" went on to be nominated in 2015 for best film. ultimately lead to oscar wins. chances are a few films debuting here may soon be coming to a theater near you. stefanie elam, park city, utah. cnn's coverage of the sun dance film festival brought to you by t-mobile.

[siri:] message. pick up milk.
oh, right. milk. introducing the newly redesigned passat. from volkswagen. i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding,
unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
about a half hour away from "state of the union" with jake tapper. what have you got for us this morning, jake? >> we have a great show. the iowa caucus is eight days away, and we're going to be talking to jeb bush and chris christie. both of whom who are trying to take the establishment seat and the trump versus cruz versus player to be named later competition. also, obviously, governor christie supervising the state of new jersey dealing with this blizzard. we'll talk to him about that. >> all right. thank you so much. we should point out gop presidential candidate jeb bush on with the state of the union" with jake at 9:00 a.m. here this morning on cnn.
let's get you breaking news out of ireland. a turkish airlines flight from houston to istanbul landed safely after it was diverted to shannon, ireland. flight tk 34 was carrying 207 pan jers and two instants. it landed safely all passengers and crew disembarked. they were moved, though, to a secure area of the airport. officials say this bomb threat is being investigated, obviously. aaron mclaughlin is with us. how long do you think it will be before we hear something from investigators. do we know more specifics about the threat that was made? >> hi, christi. irish as well as turkish media is reporting it was a handwritten note found on board the plane that contained a bomb threat. it was something that crew at the time took seriously enough to call for the diverting of the flying. it was successfully diverted to
shannon airport in ireland. it landed around 11: 09 in the morning, about 2 1/2 hours ago. all passengers and crew were successfully disembarked. police are on scene questioning the passengers. irish media is reporting they are analyzing the handwrting of the passengers and comparing the handwriting to the note. so the investigation still continuing. we understand that they will be conducting an explosives sweep of the plane, but that is not scheduled to commence for another hour and a half. so we will not know for sure, at this point, whether it was a real threat or a scare for about an hour and a half to two hours. >> somebody had to be on the plane to place that note. it makes you wonder if it is somebody currently on the plane, somebody on the plane beforehand and left. do we know what is going to
happen to the passengers? are they going to be put on one different plane? are they going to be broken up? >> well, at this point turkish airlines is saying once the plane has been thoroughly searched, and if it is, in fact, clear after the investigation the plane will continue on to istanbul later today. but, yes, as you say they have to be wondering how -- if the media reports turn out to be accurate how this note happened to be get on the plane. was it from a passenger in was it handed to a passenger prior to boarding? all things that authorities, no doubt, are trying to get to the bottom of now. >>erin mclaughlin, thank you. officials may have discovered another piece of malaysian airlines flight 370. a fisherman found a large piece of curved metal on the thai
coast. they are dispatching air accident investigators tomorrow. malaysia's transport minister said it's too early to speculate whether the debris is from the missing plane. mh 370 disappeared with 239 people on board. another piece of debris was found last year on reunion island. the u.s. geological survey said a 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit alaska this morning. the epicenter hit the cook inlet about 160 miles from anchorage. there was no tsunami threat tissue e issued because it was about 50 miles deep. there were no reports of major damage or injury following the earthquake. of course, we're continuing to follow the aftermath of the massive snowstorm. what does it mean for all of you today as you try to get back up and going into your daily routine from new york to new jersey. we've got press conferences coming out. we'll bring those to you as
well. thank you so much for starting your morning with us. inside politics with john king starts right now. one week to iowa and the republican race goes rogue. >> are you ready to make america great again?
