the roads are re-opening around st. louis out in but folks to the south are getting ready as the record flood waters head downstream. parts of missouri and illinois are dealing with some of the worst flooding in more than 20 years. the biggest problem has been missouri's merrimack river, a tributary of the mississippi, the floods forcing thousands from their homes, officials blaming the weather for 20 deaths and the number could grow as the water recedes in some areas officials have re-opened a few major roadways, allowing families to return to their homes, but the threat is just beginning for others. crews are working furiously also the waters are expected to rise in the coming days. matt finn is live in valleypark, missouri. what's it like there now?
12:02 pm
>> reporter: gregg, the water crested at an historic high yesterday. it's now starting to recede but as you can see behind me the river is still raging. the area remains flooded. we're he intersection of route 141 and highway 44. that interstate just opened a few hours ago after being closed for days. up to 25 miles of the interstate were closed, creating for a travel nightmare. now, right now, thousands in this area are without power and it's cold so many people are staying at shelters. the red cross and the national guard are helping. hundreds might not be allowed back into their homes for days. city officials warning people avoid the water. could have stray animals or snakes. the department of health is offering tetanus shots to helpers and families. and while the interstate has re-opened, dozens if not hundreds of roads still remain closed right now, gregg. >> matt, as we mentioned a moment ago, just because the waters are receding in some areas, that doesn't mean the problems are over.
12:03 pm
>> reporter: that's right, gregg. adding insult to injury here, this water is contaminated we sewage. we spoke to one home owner who says his family home might be a total loss. >> really kicking around if we'll even come back here. we just don't know. our house smells like sewage, and i don't think that will ever come out of there. >> reporter: gregg, every person we talk is to comparing this to the flood of 1993, saying it might be worse. that flood was considered a once in a 500 year event and this is not over. the national weather service is saying the mississippi river continues to flood, prompting moral evacuations to the south, gregg. >> matt finn, thank you very much. turning now to the mayor of cape gerardo, missouriing. i understand your population, 40,000 people, and you have a
12:04 pm
levee there built in the '60s. how is it doing some. >> well, we're doing fine in our city proper, due to the vision of our forefathers in building that wall and levee. so our city property is fine. we have some flooding on the outer reaches of both of the south and the north of our city, and then across the river in illinois, there's considerable flooding. we are having a record crest here of 50 feet come sunday. >> now, explain to our viewers who don't understand why it's going to crest on sunday? why the increase and. >> we had so much rain come so quick, this is a different flood that than we ever experienced here. he water has come so fast it's been hard to predict the crest. it was raised yesterday two feet
12:05 pm
from 48 to 50. the good news is that at the crest, it will go down quickly. past floods have been lingering for up to 90 days, but this one will go down quickly and we hope to get back to normal within ten days or so and begin a cleanup. we'll need to have considerable help up and down the river with infrastructure. >> you're cutting it close if it's going to close at 50. i think the top of your wall is 54 feet? >> about 54, but that's why there's extra feet on the top of it. >> yeah. how are your residents holding up there? >> well, life is really normal in 95% of our city. business is normal. our businesses and industry are normal, as it goes. so, it's kind of a normal sunny day here, celebrating new year's. we just got to get this water palls us.
12:06 pm
>> you've did mention some serious problems for folks to the north and south of you. are there shelters that have been set up for people in need? >> yes. we have shelters set up for residents, mainly throughout our county, on the southern side and across the river in illinois, but it's really minor here compared to my fellow mayors up and down the river who have experienced a considerable disaster. >> the pictures we're showing right now and have been over the last several minutes are amazing, some of the dam that's been done. this is eureka, missouri, and then we have been showing all the way from illinois to missouri to louisiana, but, look, any deaths or injuries? how about rescues? >> we have had a couple-three rescues, getting people out of homes that the water has come
12:07 pm
quickly. no injuries, no deaths. very organized. our emergency preparedness training that has gone on with our emergency crews have really paid dividends. >> all right. you have been manning the pump stations of the last six days. everybody on alert you have an active emergency operation center. you're really prepared. mr. mayor, good luck to you. thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much for having us. >> we're learning more about the man charged with planning a new year's terrorist attack in upstate new york. fbi agents say 25 year emanuel lutchman told an informant he wanted to kidnap a couple of people and then kill him so he could onisis. according to the criminal complaint, lutchman and the informant bought knives and a machete to use in the attack and the suspect talked about setting off pressure cooker bombs. laura, what other supplies was
12:08 pm
the suspect gathering for this alleged terror plot? >> reporter: there was a lot going on here. court records show that the fbi actually used three informants to gather information on this guy, and one of those informants actually helped him go shopping to pick up a few other things, other than the knives and the machete, a pretty nasty list. it included ski masks, zip ties, duct tape, amoana, latex gloves. here's his arresting mugshot. emanuel lutchman had some really bad intentions according to federal agents and had gathered the items he felt he needed to kill innocent civilians on new year's eve. the plot set town ralph in rochester, new york, just over 300 miles from new york city and according to the feds lutchman hoped to bomb inside a club or bar, kidnap people and kill them and told an fbi informant, quote, if we grab someone, they can't live.
12:09 pm
while federal investigators haven't disclosed the intended target, the owner of merchants bar in rochester says three agents came to him and told him his bar was the planned location of the attack. >> he has been around the neighborhood for quite some time. he is a panhandler, and a lot of the businesses have asked him to leave. he has been to a few of them. >> now, what makes this case stand out from some of 0 the other stories we have covered earlier this year, is that lutchman claimed he was directed by somebody involved in isis overseas. now, that was a direction he says he received. that is different from all of these other arrests we have seen where people say they were simply inspired by propaganda they'd seen online. >> most of the threats we hear about are big cities. what's the reaction in roche chess stir. >> people are obviously pretty surprised. when eh we have these recent threats we have been reporting
12:10 pm
on over december washington, dc, los angeles, new york, rochester wasn't at the top of the list so a lot of people were taken by surprise, in especially the people who go to that bar, merchant's, listen to what they said. >> we're like, ruff kidding? it's merchant's. >> just a local bar. we couldn't imagine a target of a local bar. >> and rochester cancelled its fireworks display for new year's, the mayor stands behind the decision. >> while we have no additional information that there is a credible threat or another threat lingering, threat to our community, protecting the public is always my first priority. >> so, lutchman will appear in court next week. he is scheduled to be charged with attempting to provide material support to isis and that could bring him 20 years in prison if convicted on those charges. >> laura, thank you. >> thanks. >> a manhunt is underway in israel after cops say man shot and killed two people at a bar
12:11 pm
in tel aviv. look at this surveillance video you can see the shooter place a back pac on a shopping cart, then takes out an assault rifle, runs outside, where he begins shooting into the bar. and in this footage from inside you can see people run for cover as bullets start flying everywhere. at least three other people were injured. police say they're still trying to figure out a motive for the attack but it does come amid months of violence there police have there have been almost daily attacks on israelis by palestinians. investigators say they're trying to figure out what called the massive fire at a luxury hotel in dubai. the inferno is still smoldering today. we'll have a live update just ahead.
12:12 pm
12:13 pm
12:14 pm
the pilot of a small plane that smashed into a building in alaska committed suicide, the word from a family spokeswoman who says he was not trying to hurt anyone but himself. we reported on this earlier this week, happened in downtown anchorage. the pilot died after the plane clipped an office building and then slammed into another building. investigators say it also hate transformer, causing some power outages in the area. pea pilot was a volunteer with the civil air patrol, group of volunteers who help out with search and rescue missions. law enforcement officials say he
12:15 pm
was not authorized to fly the aircraft. crews are still working to put out the fire that broke out more than 24 hours ago at a luxury hotel to in dubai. the flames had mostly died down today but embers are still sending clouds of smoke into the air. the fire quickly spread up and down the sides of the 63 story building yesterday. the hotel's developer says an investigation is now underway into what caused it. officials say 14 people ended up with just minor injuries during the evacuation. despite the massive fire, officials went ahead with the new year's eve fireworks at the nearbyber y could -- bur j khalifa. the world's toldest building. john, what are folks saying about how this was handled? >> well, gregg, emergency crews that are really being credited for saving the lives of thousands of people during the building's evacuation and during the interviews of witnesses,
12:16 pm
they were lauding those emergency crews and security personnel for keeping things calm and orderly despite this incredible situation with the fire. also, the country's prime minister today said that he was proud of the police, the ambulance, and civil defensives, and as you mentioned, gregg, incredibly, there were no fatilities, only 14 minor injuries, one person was mod latry injured and another suffered a heart attack but that was not fatal. again, the huge fireworks celebration went on as planned outside the burj khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper that looms over the address hotel where this fire erupted, and continued as planned. so far, gregg, there's really been no criticism of that because it was already a huge logistics logistics and security operation so they got people out quickly.
12:17 pm
>> fires this big tend to smolder for a very, very long time and there can be flareups, just dangerous. what are they doing to avoid that? >> reporter: well, throughout the day and after things -- after they got the flames under control and the actual fire, what has been going on is the cooling operation, where they basically let the embers burn out, and they get to the areas -- they hose down the areas they weren't able to get to last night. this is a 63-story tower and the problem is it snaked up the side of the building. they didn't have hadders to get up there to the higher floors so they had to let the fire burn itself out and, the building's state-of-the-art fire defense system to do its job. the building was opened in 2008 so it's relatively new.
12:18 pm
now, the cause is under investigation. it remains unknown, but dubai's media office is calling it an accident so at this point, obviously the question on all of our minds could this be terror relate and at this point that does not appear to be the case, but certainly how quickly it spread, snaking up the side of the building, definitely something that is going to be looked at very hard. >> john huddy, thank you very much. fi one person and injured hundreds of other as people rang in the new year in the capitol of the philippines. officials say a rocket sparked a massive fire that record through a slum district in manila, destroying a thousand shanties. 2015 was not a great year for our retirement funds so coming up, we'll get some tips on how to save some extra cash,

12:23 pm
of technology stocks. >> explain what that is. >> facebook, amazon, netflix, and google. those were huge winners, gains of more than 35%, some more than 100% so if you were in those stocks you had a good year. >> you have some tips for viewers on how to save money in 2016. one of them is to assess your subscriptions. >> the new years is a good time to take a look at what you're paying. a lot of us subscribe to things for our kids, then they outdegree and it nobody alerts us we're still paying for it. so go through, see what you're still paying, don't tell your kids because thigh might decide they want that back, but go through and pare down. >> maybe your cable bill. >> absolutely. take a look at that. maybe cut the cord, there's a lot of new things available that you don't need the full $300 cable subscription to have. >> should people invest. if so in what.
12:24 pm
>> people should invest and look carefully at their costs, though. this is a great way to save money. look at what you're paying in fees. there's robo advisers. they will charge you a lot less money to mapping your money and you can get resources that somebody with a big are bank account would have with a smaller minimum, sometimes no minimum. >> really. how do you expect the job market to perform? >> this is a great area for 2016. wages are starting to drift higher. we're seeing higher minimum wages in many areas and the jobless rate is -- the unemployment rate, 5%, and we're getting a jobs report next week, expected to continue to be good, 5%, that's pretty good. >> gas prices. boy, that has -- with the drop of oil, precipitous drop in oil in 2015, gas prices are kind of helping consumers. right? >> they are, finally. for a while people thought the cheap gas prices would not stay so long. so people were saving that money. now mastercard reported people
12:25 pm
are starting to spend, people are going to continue to save money on gas and they'll start to feel better about and it actually spend it at stores. >> you hear all these pundits say 2016, anywhere from one percent rise to a negative to a plus eight percent. nobody knows. >> nobody knows. and there's always these buzz words. i love hearing volatility. stocks hitting new highs and then drops. we don't know. it's an open book. we'll probably still see weakness in the commodity markets, strength in technology, but it's anyone's guess. >> the fed has some confidence. >> absolutely. >> they raised finally interest rates that were zero. >> yes. so now they raised them a quarter point. that not a huge difference but it is a step, saying that they are confident that the economy is on a good track. they're watching data, watching what is going on outside our borders, europe, china. but we do expect them to continue to raise rates.
12:26 pm
the question is, at what pace and how much? probably be pretty conservative, though. so we don't expect huge changes. >> a columnist for reuters, thank you very much. reuters business. >> happy new year. >> texas just got even more gun-friendly. a new open-carry law took effect today. allowing folks to wear handguns in holesters on their hips and shoulders. texas already allowed people to openly carry rifles and shotguns, not handguns. it's been that way since after the civil war. under the new law businesses can ban people from bringing guns inside. trump announced his new years resolution right here on the fox news channel last night. he is looking ahead to the first presidential contest of the year, as one of his rivals deals with major campaign shakeup. coming up on the fox news deck. usaa makes me feel like i'm a car buying expert in no time at all.

12:31 pm
12:32 pm
donald trump rang in the new year right here on the fox news channel. >> five, four, three, two, one. yay! >> kind of makes you wonder what his new year's eve resolution is. >> i'll tell you what my resolution is to make america great again, and that's what we're going to do. we have a very big lead. i intend to keep it. not because i want the job but because i want to do something great for the country and great for the people. so i hope we'll carry it out and get it done. february 1st is a very important date. that's iowa. then we have new hampshire, then south carolina, and we're going right through it and will do very well. i hope so. >> ben carson talked to fox news about the shakeup in his campaign. three top aides, including the campaign manager, quitting weeks before the first states start
12:33 pm
voting. >> we did a deep dive and recognized that there was some areas of deficiency. having said that, must recognize that the team that we had took a very unlikely scenario, complete outsider, and put him into a competitive position where nobody thought that was even remotely possible. >> fox news got the first interview with carson's new campaign manager, rich edson has more. some major changes for the carson campaign? >> reporter: yes, the campaign manager and communications director have been replaced in november carson led most surveys of iowa republicans. since then his standing as plummeted and polling fourth there. he is seventh in new hampshire. placed fourth in south carolina. and though his campaign is reporting a sizable $23 million in fourth quarter
12:34 pm
fundraising, it's burning through it quickly. the carson team has spent nearly 65% of the money it raised in the previous three months. the new campaign manager says carson will rebound. >> i think polls go up and down, as the spotlight turns to somebody else. we expect that as we get out there again and she spotlight comes back to us and people hear what dr. carson has to say. >> he says carson will concentrate on wiz and will campaign there next week. >> for the other republicans, continued focus, what, on hillary clinton? >> right, whether it's their isis strategy, differences on national security agency intelligence gather organize who missed more time away from their job, governing states are serving in the senate, runs have increased attacks on one another but the focus on hillary clinton is persistent, reminding voters about the investigations into clinton's e-mails practices while she served as secretary of state, using a private e-mail
12:35 pm
address and server in her home. the court ordered the state department review and release to the public all e-mails deemed official government. last evening the state department releasees thousands of pages and is mandated to release thousands more before the end of the month. still, clinton is a fundraising force. she brought in more than $112 million all of last year. carson raised 54 million in 2015, senator ted cruz, took in about $45 million. >> rich edson live in washington. thank you. kaitlin is here, national political reporter for real clear politics. good to see you. >> you, too. >> you heard trump saying to fox news last night, quote, have a very big lead, and we intend to keep it. he doesn't have a very big lead in iowa, which is the first contest. let's put up your real clear politics poll average. ted cruz actually has the lead
12:36 pm
by nearly three points, and the trend seems to be growing for him. if trump actually loses iowa, could that change the dynamic of the campaign and have a dramatic impacket on the contest to -- impact on the contest to follow? >> well, new hampshire is next, and if trump does not win iowa and comes in second or maybe even third, think he'll refocus on that key state of new hampshire, where he is in the lead by a significant margin, but remember, donald trump's campaign is really based on the idea of winning. so i think that not doing -- not coming in first -- >> what's he going to stay? >> -- all d. >> all this time i'm a winner, i'm a have a very big lead. i'm going to win because i he a very big lead, and if the louvreses the first state -- >> exactly. that could be a blow. i if we know anything about donald trump he'll repackage it. >> make it sound like a winner. >> but it would be a big blow, i
12:37 pm
think. >> dr. ben carson, big blow, loses top two guys. just a month before the first caucus vote here. i was looking at the real clear politics poll average. he was in october at 24%. boy, that has taken nosedive now to nine percent. can he recover or is this -- put a fork in his campaign? >> i think it's very difficult at this point. anytime you have a reshuffling of the campaign, it says something about your candidacy. to have it happen this close to when voters are actually going to start voting, i think is significant. now, i do think that he can do okay in iowa. he does have that kind of base of evangelical supporters, but remember, ted cruz has really inherited a lot of ben carson's support in that key state of iowa, is well-organize thread and also the southern states
12:38 pm
starting march 1st. >> you have had few people drop out but still have 11. so it's a crowded field still. is it going to be winnowed down after the first primary. >> after the first actual primary, the second state to cast ballots there are so many candidates staking their entire campaigns on new hampshire. chris christie, john kashich, jeb bush, they have to have really solid showings in that state to be able to continue. so i do thing after new hampshire, which is a voting state, not a caucus, which is important, so i think after that we'll see a winnowing of the field heading into south carolina. >> hillary clinton's really good another making money. she -- as we mentioned, she shattered the latest fundraising records, announcing she raised 55 million in the last quarter. makes 112 million for the year. >> it's remarkable, especially since she doesn't have a really strong primary challenge right now. bernie sanders is doing well in new hampshire, but she still
12:39 pm
maintains a significant lead -- >> look at that -- ted cruz is half of much as she, and ben carson, 54. they're not even close. >> well, again, use mentioned earlier, the field is so crowded, and so ted cruz has ratessed a significant amount of money and so has ben carson but ben carson spent a lot of money to raise money, so we raul see. this is going to be a very expensive campaign. >> and it's going to be an interesting one, just a month from now, the first caucus, and things are always changing in iowa. you never know what's going to happen. >> of course. always room for a surprise. >> kaitlin hughey burns thank you for being with us. >> thanks. >> kim jong-un, the north korean dictator, kicked off 2016 by saying he is ready for war.
12:40 pm
lil' kim as shep likes to call him, with new glasses. kim said he'll continue to work toward peace but if outsiders get in the way, look out, he is not going to be forgiving. that's a quote. i'm not going to be forgiving. kim stayed away from the usual threats about his country's nuclear weapons and long-range missiles and also promised to improve north korea's economy. so, happy new year, i guess. train stations in major cities evacuated after bomb threats. just ahead, what investigators in germany are saying about an isis plan for a suicide bombing. first, grammy-winning singer natalie cole died. she died from ongoing health issues last night in los angeles. she was the daughter, of course, of nat king cole, decade after he died she rerecorded his hit song, "unforgettable" as a duet.

12:45 pm
bombers planned to carry out an attack last night. the government official now says there are no longer concrete indications of a threat today but he said the overall terror threat is still quite high. let's bring in ambassador dennis ross, a fox news foreign affairs analyst, also a former national security council official, and former director of the state department's policy planning staff. he also wrote the book "doomed to succeed. ambassador, great to talk to you. it seems like we live under this chronic sort of phalanges mentality of being under threat of terror. in that way i suppose the islamic state, isis, prevails. >> certainly that's their intent. one of the ways they create an impression that in fact they're having an impact and succeeding is by creating a constant sense of people being on edge,
12:46 pm
constantly having to pay attention to them, and every time they suffer a setback, as they have in ramadi, they want to create an impression that in fact they really haven't lost, they're still there, they're succeeding by keeping the world on edge and that in fact are trying to create a kind of polarization of the world against them because they have an apocalyptic presentation of who they are. they say they have a divine mandated but they look for an end of days see narrow, and right now they want to coop the world on edge. >> you said we cannot discredit isis, only sunny muss -- sunny muslims in iraq. what do youown mean? >> i men at the end of the day we can set back isis. we can militarily ensure they lose territory. but their claim ills that they have a divine mandate, they
12:47 pm
