7:00 am
here. >> great to have you both back from the oscars in los angeles. we're going to have details on the crash coming in and on the monster blizzard, that sam was talking about. we're going to get that from him just ahead. it's been hitting throughout the northwest. some major, major video and developments overnight. we're going to start with josh and the balloon air crash in egypt. quite a few people dead. >> we have just learned a 19 ut tourist has died after a hot air balloon exploded and plummeted to the ground in the city of luxor. people tried to jump for their lives. egyptian officials said at least 20 tourists were flying over luxor, when the balloon caught fire and plunged to the ground. christopher michelle is an american photographer. he was in another hot air balloon, close to the one that crashed. >> this is a popular tourist thing to do in luxor, which is to float over the ancient temples. there are eight or nine
7:01 am
balloons. they do it almost every day. it's a fairly common activity. as we were coming in to land, i heard a loud explosion. saw smoke. i didn't realize it was another balloon. we were close to the ground. as you probably know, in the luxor, they burn the sugar cane. i assumed it was coming from the ground, not obviously one of the balloons. >> reporter: michelle said he couldn't see the other balloon until after his had landed safely. >> emergency vehicles started to arrive. over in next hour or two, we started to understand the extent of the tragedy. >> reporter: another woman described the scene to the bbc. >> it exploded in the air. and people were jumping out of the balloon. so, i believe they died out of jumping, not of the explosion. >> reporter: egyptian security reports three are being treated for their injures. and that the tourists included citizens of france, britain, belgium, hungary, japan and hong kong. that's not the first big crash at the site. 16 tourists were injured in 2009, when a balloon struck a cell phone tower. we'll have updates as news
7:02 am
becomes available this morning. now, to your money and new worries on wall street this morning, after the worst loss of the year. the dow plummeted more than 200 points monday, thanks in part to an indecisive election in italy that could accelerate europe's debt crisis. that instability sent oil prices plunging this morning. and the white house stepping up u.s. involvement in syria's bloody civil war. secretary of state john kerry has promised the rebels trying to overthrow bashar al assad that support from the u.s. is coming. though he didn't elaborate further. he did persuade rebel leaders to attend a conference in rome this week. "the new york times" reports that saudi arabia is already shipping weapons to the rebels, something president obama has refused to do in the past. and next time you're tempted to illegally download music or movies online, you could be in store for a rather rude awakening. beginning this week, the top internet providers will be tracking illegal downloads as part of the new copyright alert system, organized by the entertainment industry.
7:03 am
you will get six warnings to stop. and then the real punishment kicks in. your service provider will temporarily slow your connection to a crawl. have you seen first lady michelle obama's wardrobe change from the oscars? we saw mrs. obama in her sleeveless silver gown, looking lovely, as she announced "argo's" win for best picture. but then take a look at the version that aired overseas. first lady, a bit more covered up after media in iran got done photoshopping the image. the iranian version on the right, more in line with muslim modesty codes. but "argo" got the win. they could not photoshop that win away. going to get more on the monster blizzard blasting the middle of the country. sam out in l.a., tracking it all. hey, sam. >> good morning, george. and following the same path as the last one. this is another active day. 21 states have winter weather watches, warnings or advisories.
7:04 am
they go from kansas, oklahoma, shoot all the way up to the great lakes. then, get into maine and drive down into the carolinas. 21 inches of snow in that panhandle of texas. take a look what it looks like when this snow falls in amarillo. they're having to use every piece of equipment they can to get the snow out of the way. wichita, the exact same thing. it was just last week wichita got pounded with snow. they get pounded again. the winter storm warnings are still out today for heavy snow. kansas city is right in the heart of it. so is our ginger zee. she's live in kansas city this morning. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: sam, it's another morning commute stifled. cars socked in by fresh snow. highways closing. remember, i was just here. but this storm is a little different. it had another violent feature, the wind. the raging blizzard, bringing whiteouts and record snow to parts of north texas. also fueling devastating fires in the southeastern part of the state. including one blaze that burned a mobile home, killing a mother
7:05 am
and her twin toddlers. >> came outside and looked. and i looked across the street. and the house was on fire. >> reporter: in corpus christi, wind-whipped dust made driving look like this. and watch as the side of this building in austin crumbles. after being battered by 50-mile-per-hour wind gusts. this morning, even as the storm moves east, it is thrashing highways, from oklahoma to kansas. roads now caked in snow. here in missouri, the morning commute will be nearly impossible. it's the second major snow in less than a week. and while grocery store shelves in kansas city were cleared in anticipation -- the remnants of last week's wallop in wichita came crashing down, in time to make room for a fresh coat. tens of thousands are already without power. you can see why. it's heavy and wet snow weighing
7:06 am
down the tree limbs. we'll see much more of that and roof collapses, too, elizabeth? >> all right, ginger. thank you so much. now, we're going to turn to the headlines coming in right now on the pope. we just learned that benedict will be called emeritus pope and will wear white after he steps down next week. his retirement this week is being clouded by scandal, as there are more calls to stop an american cardinal from participating in the election of the next pope. abc's david wright is in rome right now with the very latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. there's never before been a precedent for a cardinal stepping aside because of a scandal. now there is. that make it uncomfortable for other cardinals tainted by scandals. among them, roger mahoney, who, for years, covered up for pedophile priests. for 24 hours, britain's cardinal keith o'brien has holed up in this home in scotland. >> the holy father accepted the
7:07 am
resignation of cardinal o'brien. >> reporter: on sunday, a british newspaper reported he sexually harassed four seminarians in the 1980s. while o'brien insists the presence were false, his presence at the conclave would be a distraction. there's another scandal, one that is demonstrably true, that also threatens to be a distraction. >> i think it's important to raise these kinds of issues. >> reporter: roger mahoney protected pedophile priests for more than a decade. already in rome, last night, he blogged about his disgust, with a culture so quick to accuse, judge and condemn. what happened to the norm of giving others the benefit of the doubt until hard evidence proves otherwise? he wre. in mahoney's case, thousands of pages of documents released under a court order were so damning, his successor publicly rebuked him. >> nothing's changed. and nothing will change. with a new pope, i don't think it's going to -- that new pope is going to be saddled with
7:08 am
cardinal roger mahoney. >> reporter: but the vatican supports mahoney. so does america's highest-ranking official. >> he's the first one to apologize for errors in judgment he made. i believe he should be at the conclave. >> reporter: the process to replace pope benedict is on fast track. the timing of all this, the deacon of the cardinals will summon the college of cardinals on friday to a meeting that will take place on monday. that won't be the beginning of the conclave. it's the beginning of the process. george? >> david, looking forward to joining you in rome for that in a couple days. right now, we turn to washington and the budget stalemate that means across-the-board spending cuts to start to kick in on friday. no talks about solving the problem. instead, the two parties are fighting about what the cuts will mean and who's to blame. jon karl has more from the white house. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. the white house is loudly sounding the alarms about what
7:09 am
these cuts will mean. but republicans are accusing the president of trying to scare the american people. the white house has already warned of airport delays and meat shortages and lost jobs. now, greater risk of terrorist attack. >> i don't think we can maintain the same level of security at all places around the country. >> reporter: the president invited the nation's governors to lunch at the white house monday, warning of cuts that will hurt their states. >> the longer these cuts are in place, the bigger the impact will become. >> reporter: the white house has put together a state-by-state report on how the cuts will hurt the disadvantaged. in louisiana, for example, more than 1,700 children will not receive vaccinations. 600 will lose access to child care. but just minutes after lunch with the president, louisiana's republican governor accused him of fear-mongering. >> he's trying to scare the american people. he's trying to distort the impacts. >> reporter: are you saying they won't happen if the cuts happen? the way they're planned out?
7:10 am
>> i'm saying the president needs to show leadership and tell congress how he can cut $85 billion without cutting these critical services. >> reporter: we put that directly to the secretary of homeland security. governor jindal says the administration is scaring people. he says the president is scaring people. is that just wrong? >> if people are scared it's because the full impact of this is finally being made evident. >> reporter: later this morning, the president travels to newport news, virginia, to highlight how the uncertainty of the defense cuts has put 5,000 shipbuilding jobs on the line. the idea here, george, is to put pressure on republicans. but one top republican leader in congress said, quote, mr. president, this is no time for a road show. so, the finger-pointing continues. >> and it will for some time. jon karl, thanks very much. now, we're going to turn to the latest on the family that went missing at sea over the weekend. they told the coast guard they were abandoning ship near monterey, california.
7:11 am
now, there's a massive manhunt on the way to find them. abc's abbie boudreau has the story. >> reporter: overnight, the frantic search continuing, from the sky and the sea. using infrared technology to find a family who apparently went missing sunday evening, after reporting their sailboat was sinking. >> coast guard, coast guard, we are abandoning ship. this is the "charm blow." we are abandoning ship. >> reporter: the u.s. coast guard says that call came in from a location about 65 miles west of monterey, south of san francisco. investigators say they pieced together clues from a series of broken distress calls. and believe the boaters were a husband and wife, their 4-year-old son and his cousin. the coast guard says the family's 29-foot sailboat was taking on water and the engine had stopped working. the boat apparently has no functioning gps system or a lifeboat. >> they said they had a cooler and a life ring. they were going to try to put them together to make some sort of life raft. >> reporter: the coast guard has yet to locate the sailboat, which they believe is named "charm blow," even though it's
7:12 am
not rej zered. and the identities of those aboard remains a mystery, too, since no one has filed a missing persons report. for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> that is a tough story. we're going to turn to robin's exclusive interview with first lady michelle obama. all over the headlines this week, especially after that surprise appearance at the oscars to announce the best picture. robin sat down with her before heading to l.a. to talk about the first lady's let's move campaign and more. including how the president is handling a teenager in the white house. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. >> reporter: it really seemed, mrs. obama, that you and the president and your family, this time around, really took in the moment. was that the case? >> absolutely. we made a conscious decision to take this in because four years ago, it was a whirlwind. so, this was one of those times where we had to just stop and breathe and appreciate all that we'd accomplished and all that was left to do. >> reporter: as president obama begins his second term, gun
7:13 am
violence has become an issue close to both the president and the first lady. in january, mrs. obama attended the funeral of one young victim in chicago, gunned down just a week after performing at the inauguration. >> hadiya was an honor student. one of the things her mother said at the funeral, she said, you know, i did everything i was supposed to do. and she was absolutely right. she did everything she was supposed to do. she was standing in a park, with her friends, in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids grew up, where our house is. and she was caught in the line of fire. i just don't want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. i want them to know that we put them first. >> reporter: our country's children have long been the focus of mrs. obama's time in the white house. this is the third anniversary of her "let's move" campaign, taking on childhood obesity. what have you accomplished with
7:14 am
let's move? and what remains to be done? >> when we started, there were a lot of people in this country that would have never thought that childhood obesity was a health crisis. but now, we're starting to see rates of obesity coming down, like never before. this new initiative that we're announcing, the "myplate recipe partnership," where we're collaborating with some of the top media companies in this country. and they are compiling and labeling and promoting recipes that meet the myplate guidelines. >> reporter: now, before i let mrs. obama go, i couldn't resist asking about her latest trend-setting move. yep. those new bangs. there's no hotter topic -- >> okay. oh, what? >> reporter: no hotter topic, than your bangs. >> bangs? what bangs? >> you know, you forced me to go rigless. in december, my wonderful stylist picked out a wig for me. in december. >> really? >> you didn't debut this until january. take a look at this picture.
7:15 am
>> my goodness. that's cute. >> i was going to do that -- but everybody would have thought i was copying you when i came back. >> robin, you are so gorgeous. you are one of the women who can do whatever to your hair and you look great. >> thank you. >> you can mix it up. >> that was december, the wig. >> robin had it first. robin -- i'm following you. >> not at all. but that's the spirit of everything. and when i think about your children, malia's going to be 15 in july. >> i know. >> and your husband has kind of joked just a little bit about the knock, knock, knock, 1600 pennsylvania avenue young man. is he really concerned about that? >> no. i think he likes to -- fathers in particular, i don't think they really know how they're going to feel until it happens. you know? there's nothing like the look on his face when malia dresses up for a party and she's heading out.
7:16 am
and she walks past him. and you can see his face sort of just drop a little bit. like, what was that? he's a little gray. people think the gray is from his job. it's from his children. so, we'll see how that goes. >> welcome to the club on that one. >> good luck. >> i'm loving all the details that are coming in about the secret oscar announcement. >> it was like something out of "argo." >> one of the producers told "the hollywood reporter" they had to fly secretly to the white house. they had to keep it off all of the manifests, all of the program runs. and the first lady said yes immediately. i think it's a great idea. they watch movies all the time. and they pulled it off. >> they sure did. that was great. >> it was. we're going to go back to sam champion in l.a. with more on the weather because we have breaking news on tornado warnings. hey, sam. >> good morning, everybody. yeah. it's the same snowstorm, elizabeth, that we talked about, delivering snow in the northern half. and the strong to severe storms are in the southern sections. those tornado watches and warnings are out from tampa, all
7:17 am
the way to savannah. that includes jacksonville, florida. you see the areas in the boxes. this is live at this time. we have warnings in the highlighted red area. that's the area just west of gainesville, florida. this is where the strong storms will light up during the day today. we think it will be almost an all-day event. north florida, south georgia, the carolinas, as well. we're very interested in this. and you should know that one or two storms could develop some isolated tornadoes today. a look at who gets more snow in the storm today. it's somewhere from chicago, to detroit, to boston, into maine. that could be an additional eight inches of snow for some folks.

7:30 am
been heard from in almost a month. >> a long time. on a lighter note, it is one of the great pieces of video we've seen in forever. there's the first of several remarkable reactions when jack nicholson bombed george's interview with jennifer lawrence, after winning best actress for her part in "silver linings playbook." much more on the woman who has become america's new it girl. >> a little gift for everyone who sends out our viral video. we're going to begin with the crucial testimony in the trial of the star montana quarterback. jordan johnson was on the stand in his defense on monday. in this case that has divided the community, his fate is likely to rest on how he handles the next round of questions. linsey davis is here with more on this. >> reporter: the defense called it the she said/she said case. others are calling it trial by twirt. bloggers are tweeting play-by-play updates about the quarterback who now faces up to
7:31 am
100 years in prison. for the first time, jurors are hearing firsthand what he has to say in his he said/she said case in montana. jordan johnson, at the center of this alleged sexual assault case. >> i don't think i had intentions of a relationship. >> reporter: johnson's lawyers maintain the football player had consensual sex with a classmate. from the witness stand, a soft-spoken and demure johnson detailed the extent of their relationship. including the text messages they exchanged. >> i honestly don't remember. how's it going? how is school going? >> did you -- >> she came to my dormroom. and i went over to her dormroom. >> reporter: police say the night of the alleged incident, the woman invited johnson to her room to watch a movie.
7:32 am
what happened next depends on who you believe. in this police interrogation tape played for jurors last week, johnson says the two began kissing on the woman's bed before things went further. if she had said stop or no, he says he would have stopped. but shortly after the incident, johnson's accuser texted a friend saying, i think i might have just gotten raped. i said no, but he wouldn't listen. she later told another friend, maybe i wanted it. early in the day monday, the jury heard the accuser's brother, saying their sister struggled telling the family about the alleged ordeal. >> she started off really calm. and then, by the end, she started breaking down. >> reporter: in those audio recordings played in court from the victim's family, her mother and brother talk about how she's changed. that she cries more and has become more guarded. the defense is trying to paint a picture of being jealous of another woman johnson had just started seeing.
7:33 am
the trial resumes tomorrow. let's get more from "gma" legal analyst dan abrams. what a crucial decision to go on that stand. >> and this testimony is going to be make-or-break to some degree. the jurors will be watching what he says and how he says it. they're going to be looking at his eyes and his body language. his credibility is this case. she's already testified. the jurors have watched her testimony. they've heard her testimony. they've heard her account. now, this is his opportunity to get up there and say something very different than what they previously heard. exactly how he says this becomes crucial. >> all he has to do is plant a seed of doubt. >> that's the problem for prosecutors here, right? if these jurors believe it's more likely than not that she was raped, that's a not guilty verdict. there has to be proof beyond a reasonable doubt. that's a high standard, particularly in a case like this, where you have her account and his account.
7:34 am
and you have dueling medical experts, et cetera. prosecutors have the enormous burden. that's why this is such a tough case. >> see how he handles cross-examination. back on the stand tomorrow. >> the direct examination is the easy part. the harder part is when he's cross-examined. turning to the growing mystery of the young california couple who vanished on their dream vacation in peru a month ago. the question this morning is, could they have been kidnapped? abc's gio benitez has the story. >> reporter: this morning, the search is on for this young couple on the vacation of a lifetime. bicycling through south america for several months. worrying only about taking the next great photo. but then, one month ago, silence. and now, their families are asking, where are 25-year-old garrett hand and his girlfriend, jamie neal? >> they would post sometimes several times a day. pictures, telling us where they
7:35 am
were. and then, we all noticed that his postings stopped. >> reporter: on january 25th, the last facebook post from cuso, peru. neal writing, finally found kraft mac and cheese in south america. hand's mom is sick. >> larkin remembers garrett's password. and it turned out the password was also the password was also the password for his bank account. >> reporter: and there's no bank activity after january 25th. >> how is my son traveling without getting any money? >> reporter: just this month, the u.s. date department issued a warning for americans traveling to peru. highlights kid nals in cuzco, the same city that neal was facebooking. the couple might have gotten oen a boat to ecuador. a country not on their itinerary. but hand's mother says, wherever
7:36 am
they are, she should have heard from them by now. >> that's a long time, particularly for people who are in their mid-20s, who communicate daily on the internet. >> reporter: hand's sister hopes her brother will be home, playing with his niece and nephew again soon. >> come home. your family needs you in california with them. >> reporter: and neal's bosses at a bike shot in california are also joining in on the search. raising money to offer as a cash reward to anyone with information on where neal and hand may be. >> a mystery. let's hope so. time to go back out to los angeles and check in with sam champion for a look at the nation's severe weather this morning, sam. >> yeah. we're starting severe. even though this is the southern part of that big snow system. the severe storms are what's breaking out first and early this morning. take a look at where we expect the severe storms to be today. and stay up with your local abc stations. it's really in the southeast. this area got heavy rain
7:37 am
yesterday. a lot of the gulf coast even the panhandle of florida. jacksonville, orlando, all the way up the carolina coastline. beware there could be severe storms. you get rain by afternoon in d.c. from this system. this was a snowmaker in the middle of the country. it becomes a rainmaker in the mid-atlantic. quick look at the big boards to show you the system that was on the west coast, moves in to become another mountain snow in the west. a few we are live this morning here in l.a., for the "dancing with the stars" cast reveal. so live, we have an audience, by the way, that is here.
