country, over 300 million up for grabs, and everybody's got a system. >> i think i should get three, one for the father, the son and the holy spirit. >> the mad rush for tickets has people dreaming big. and good morning. we'll get to the historic flooding in a moment. the mississippi river approaching a record crest as we speak this morning. but we want to start here with terror and donald trump. >> now, you may remember that not long ago hillary clinton created that uproar when she claimed falsely it turned out that isis was using trump in recruitment videos. well, trump hit back really hard, and we have learned that another terror group, al shabaab, which is al qaeda's affiliate is now using trump in a video. >> this new clip which comes out of somalia features trump announcing his controversial plan to ban muslims from coming to america and abc's mary bruce is on the story from the white house this morning.
>> reporter: hi, dan, good morning. for weeks there's been a fierce debate over the impacts of trump's call to ban muslims but now this morning for the first time we're seeing a terror group use his language to boost their fight. >> take heed. >> reporter: a terrorist group is including a clip of donald trump in a recruitment video. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: the militant group al shabaab, al qaeda's affiliate in somalia, highlighting trump's call to ban muslims entering the u.s. trump's words sandwiched between the propaganda words of anwar al awlaki killed four years ago. >> the west will eventually turn against its muslims citizens. >> reporter: this the first known instance of extremists using trump's language to attract followers although not by isis as hillary clinton predicted. >> he is becoming isis' best recruiter. >> reporter: the democratic front-runner ignited a war of
that his rhetoric would become recruiting fodder. >> they are going to people showing videos of donald trump insulting islam and muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists. >> reporter: trump blasted clinton calling her a liar. >> donald trump is on video and isis is using him on the video to recruit. and it turned out to be a lie. she's a liar. >> reporter: now there has been no reaction yet from the clinton or trump camps, but you can be sure this will continue to be a big issue on the campaign trail in the coming days. paula. >> yeah, i'm sure we'll be hearing from them shortly. mary, thank you. there are terror fears at home and abroad. in france where they've been on high alert, soldiers shot a man outside a mosque as he drove a car towards them. and then in israel, there was a deadly attack at a popular bar. abc's alex marquardt gives us the details from our london bureau. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula.
officers were deployed as part of the new year's celebrations. this is one of the many european cities on edge, fearing an attack. it's part of a new situation in europe that one top german official called a general permanent terror threat. french soldiers unload their handguns into a red car which had just tried to ram them twice. the driver is wounded and the car rolls into a ditch. the incident took place outside a mosque that the soldiers were guarding. the driver's motive is still unclear, but it highlights the new nervous reality of life in europe after the deadly paris attacks. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: in his new year's address, french president francois holland told citizens they are not finished with terrorism and the threat remains at its highest level. paris canceled their new year's eve fireworks and then so did brussels as men were arrested there in connection with a new year's plot. the same night munich evacuated and shut down two of its train stations after warnings of a
suicide bombers. beyond europe, the global fears reinforced in israel, hardly new to violence and terror. after a gunman seen here in this surveillance video opened fire in central tel aviv spraying a cafe with bullets as people ran for cover. two were killed and seven wounded. the attacker is a young arab-israeli man believed to be mentally unstable. it's not known what his motive was. and israeli authorities have launched a massive manhunt for him. but whether it's in israel, here in europe or beyond, it's clear new year. dan. >> that is absolutely correct. alex, thank you. with america jittery about both isis and the seemingly endless string of mass shootings in this country, president obama is about to wade deeply into the debate over guns. this time he wants to bypass congress and use executive action to make it more difficult for the mentally ill and for criminals to get firearms. abc's jim avila is with the president in hawaii this
jim, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. the president ends his vacation in hawaii tonight, landing back in washington, d.c. on sunday. and among the first things he plans to do is a monday morning meeting with attorney general loretta lynch on gun control. he said in his radio weekly address that it's an issue he cannot ignore. >> i get too many letters from parents and teachers and kids to sit around and do nothing. i get letters from responsible gun owners who grieve with us every time these tragedies happen. >> reporter: in the wake of the san bernardino attacks, he suggested to his justice department they look for ways that he could order some kind of gun control on his own. the president saying that he does not trust the congress to do anything on their own and he's going to have to act with executive orders, dan. >> all right, i'll pick it up from here, jim. again, that meeting with the attorney general is monday.
and now to a very real and present danger here at home. the death toll continues to rise from the historic midwest flooding. the massive cleanup from the catastrophe is under way in some towns while further south people are still bracing from the worst from the mighty mississippi and abc meteorologist indra peterson has the latest from cape girardeau. hi, indra. >> reporter: good morning, paula. it's hard to believe it's been a week since all that record rain yet here i am today still the story here is actually just beginning. homes submerged, hundreds of roads washed away, cars stranded. this morning parts of missouri under as much as 16 feet of water after a week of record flooding along the mississippi river. >> it's mind boggling. >> reporter: at least 23 people are dead. others still missing and the deadly deluge is not over yet. the illinois governor declaring a state of emergency deploying national guard troops to the hardest hit areas as officials and residents brace for the worst.
dangerous to have this kind of rain and then this kind of cold. >> reporter: in some parts of starting to recede but for many, the damage is already done. matt kraichley is staying with family after his suburban st. louis home was swept away on wednesday. the force of the raging water smashing the house into a bridge. >> i thought it was going to get in the house a couple feet, and then i never -- i didn't even imagine that it would go over the roof and then disappear. >> reporter: kraichley, no training stranger to flooding, was stunned by the devastation. put stuff high. the river goes down, you wash it off and carry on. you never expect your house to float away. >> reporter: outside of st. louis this morning as the waters are receding there, they're still concerned about the threat of enough drinking water as that water went right into that water filtration system. now, here farther to the south
just beginning already surpassing the record flooding from 1993 and the river hasn't even crested yet, in fact, by tomorrow morning it's expected to rise to 50 feet here and, of course, this is not just for this region, notice out towards illinois, very unusual, they've actually already posted flash flood watches over concerns that the levees there will breach, and then all this water has to make its way farther down to the south so places like mississippi and out towards louisiana, they're carefully watching the situation because they know all this water is headed in their direction. it just takes time, so still another week or two from now we are still going to be talking about that threat for major flooding in that region and the other thing i have to point out, it is very cold this morning. typically when you see a flooding concern in this part of the country, it's usually in the springtime when it's warm outside, but today you can tell temperatures are below freezing so i'm actually standing in a mix of water and ice, so the roads are very slippery out here on the sides of the roads, seeing ice crystals so impossible to walk so another layer to the depth of what's going on. drivers having a very difficult time into the midwest. dan, paula.
get any worse, indra, thank you. we'll check in with you a little bit later. >> this is going to be going on for weeks apparently. indra, thank you. let's take a look at the other morning headlines and as always we turn it over to >> happy new year. >> dan, paula, sara haines, good morning to you. we begin with people around the country and around the world really checking their new year's uber receipts, some of them getting sticker shock. riders took to social media to post their frustration and to post evidence about what they claim is uber taking advantage of the holiday to jack up prices. uber's facebook page had more than 100 complaints. uber allows prices to surge in times of high demand and they confirmed to abc news there is no cap on how high that surge multiplier can go. the company, though, says it warned in advance that new year's eve and early new year's day fares could be higher and urged riders to share the fare by riding with others. bill cosby's wife camille will no long erer
legal battles. a federal judge -- she will have to answer questions next week in an upcoming deposition in a civil lawsuit against the comedian, this after she was denied a request by her lawyers to be excused. that civil case is separate from the criminal case against cosby who was charged earlier this week in pennsylvania with aggravated indecent assault on a woman back in 2004. now, the cosbys have been married for more than 50 years. and overseas thousand and a look at the char edred luxury skyscraper in dubai after a towering new year's eve inferno. firefighters there, fire crews were still dousing the embers on friday as officials try to figure out what caused that massive blaze. investigators are trying to figure out whether a flammable plastic component may have caused the fire to spread so quickly. 14 people were slightly injured. and tributes are pouring in for grammy award winning natalie cole, the singer, who died new
unforgettable and forevermore and forevermore >> the daughter of legendary jazz musician singer nat king cole was best known for her 1991 virtual duet with her father singing his classic "unforgettable." aretha franklin called her one of the greatest singers of our time. cole had battled drug problems and hepatitis that forced her to undergo a kidney transplant six years ago. natalie cole was 65 years of age. take a look at this video from brussels. you're seeing a group of teenagers throwing a car down a flight of stairs. somebody's idea of a prank leading to an underground subway station. remarkfully, nobody was injured even though the station was opened and passengers were coming up the escalator at the same time. one person was arrested. and now to a dramatic video from pennsylvania of a woman escaping just after she escaped from an alleged carjacking attempt, she says the suspected abductor told her that he was holding her hostage as he drove through several towns stopping
you can see her pleading for help from a stranger before flagging down police. that suspect was later caught. and finally, a twisted drum solo from motley crue's tommy lee that had the audience gasping in l.a. check this out. you see there, it happened during motley crue's final show, the roller-coaster ride spinning lee 360 degrees vertically. something went wrong leaving him suspended upside down. he was in that position for nearly a minute. he appeared unfazed, tommy lee did, drumming his way through that equipment malfunction. finally a worker went up to try to help but the roller coaster started again. that band together for more than three decades finishing their last show ever and check out the video. i recommend it. he has some spontaneous comments that we cannot repeat on morning tv or evening tv or any tv. >> i'm shocked. from tommy lee? come on. i don't believe it.
>> this is an idea for like a new album or a new song called "upside down." >> isn't that already -- upside down s that is a totally -- you turn me -- >> we're going way, way back there. >> here's my advice after working with these folks, just stay out of it. stay out of it. >> smile and nod. >> all right. we're smiling and nodding this morning because we're learning more about a very brave teenager who survived nearly 30 hours in single digit temperatures while lost in the utah wilderness. his desperate 911 calls for help have just been released and abc's mara schiavocampo has all of the details for us. hi, mara. >> reporter: hey, paula, good morning. it is an amazing story of survival. that teen and a friend out duck hunting when he got lost. instead of heading to the car mistakenly walkingd deeper and deeper into the wilderness spending more than a day in bone-chilling temperatures before a miraculous recovery. >> i don't feel good. i feel like i'm gonna pass out.
released 911 calls of a missing 14-year-old hunter's fight for survival. >> they're going the wrong way. >> reporter: brayden neilson now recovering at home spent 28 hours lost in 4 degree weather. racing against hypothermia and a dying phone, neilson desperately tries to guide search teams to his location. so close he can see their lights even though they can't see him. >> are you still by the barn? >> it's not a barn. it's hard to explain. i see snow branches, lights, cars. >> reporter: with his battery now dead, neilson's family who he had also been calling and texting begins to fear the worst. >> i went from kind of in my own mind to i can't bury him. >> reporter: five hours after the last word from the young hunter, another 911 call.
reporting brayden was finally found disoriented and shaken suffering hallucinations from hypothermia, but safe. >> i think god led me that whole way through -- the whole way through there. >> reporter: just amazing. now, brayden was found about seven miles from where he got lost. he's now also recovering from frostbite. officials say he's alive thanks to the warm hunting gear he was wearing and, dan, he says the whole experience taught him the importance of carrying survival gear while you're out. reely lucky to be home this new year. >> i think he'll be teaching a lesson to a lot of people. >> i guess you could say it's a new year's miracle as well and this new year's beginning with a huge powerball jackpot. >> a lot of people hoping for a miracle but the drawing is tonight. the jackpot is 334 million bucks. the last time the payout was this high was three years ago and sara shocking lyly decided to do this story. >> have no idea why they didn't pick you, dan.
but when you play the "what could i do with $334 million game," this jackpot is looking pretty good but you do have to be in it to win it. this morning americans are rushing out for a chance to start the new year a multi, multi, multimillionaire in tonight's powerball. even wanna-be winners unlucky enough to win in one of the six states that don't offer powerball are making the trek across state lines to pick up their lucky numbers. >> through last wednesday we had sold more than $620 million in powerball tickets. so, people are really starting to get some jackpot fever. >> reporter: at just 1 in 292 million, i'm 20 times more likely to have identical quadruplets than i am to win this jackpot. the odds are super long but could be super worth it. >> look what i found in my pocket. look what i call them, fun coupons. >> reporter: want a luxury sports car? you could purchase a new one
or what about traveling the globe, cruise for life and still have $250 million left. >> part of the excitement of playing the lottery is dreaming what you would do. >> buy my new apartment. >> go to a party. >> reporter: some players have a religious system. >> i think i should get three, one for the father, the son and the holy spirit. >> reporter: but this powerball official says the first thing he would do -- >> no matter where you live, get a lawyer, get some banking experience behind you, and then go have some fun with that $334 million. >> reporter: we were just playing the what would you do? dan, what would you do? aside from save every cat in the world like other things you would do. >> i would save a lot of cats. i would give a lot of it away. i would keep working, though. >> but what one thing would you do for yourself? >> not buy tickets to a motley crue show because apparently they're done. >> by the way, "upside down" has been covered by no less than six bands. >> the song, "upside down." >> uh-huh. >> so we do have it covered.
until the money ran out. >> so, you were listening to my piece. >> i'm just kidding. >> i love you, ron. >> sara, money cannot buy happiness. >> that's what they keep telling me. >> you're going to try, right? put it to the test. >> exactly. >> worth testing. all right, thank you for that story, sara. let's get the weather once again and get back to indra in cape girardeau, missouri, good morning, once again. >> good morning, i know what i battery operated socks, guys, because it is very cold this i know we had like this warmest december for many places on the east coast on record, but that quickly changed and went into the new year with a big bank. look at this video, upstate new york, what did you get, finally lake-effect snow, a ton of it. people finally flew what their snowblowers were about, a good six inches to a foot already fell there making conditions very difficult to drive but keep in mind, oh, yeah, as we go through the weekend more snow is actually expected in the areas. we still have advisories posted. another half a foot possible into the region.
