7:05 am
but so far police tweeting overnight only nine arrests for unruly behavior. >> at the very least. >> hope it wasn't one of our executive producers. he was at the game last night. that's tom. biggest red sox fan, ever. we haven't seen him this morning yet. >> now that i put the two stories together -- >> i was thinking about him last night. look, it was a great series. and cardinals fans have to be hurt this morning. but for the red sox to do it like that, to get it done early last night, that was a party at fenway last night. well had. >> great weather there. and here -- >> now, it goes downhill. i need to get everyone's attention. this situation of the halloween storm has gotten much worse. it kind of exploded overnight. it's about one-third of the country involved in this. we show you pictures out of austin, where there were at least 11 calls for water rescues, in the austin area. radar estimates about 5 to 16 inches of rain has fallen in that area.
7:06 am
53 million people, according to the storm's prediction center, are under what could be strong to severe storms. that's from houston to new orleans, to little rock, to memphis, to st. louis, to nashville, to louisville, to indianapolis, to cincinnati, cleveland and detroit. i want to make sure we got all of them in. these are the areas, eight states with flood watches and warnings out, already for this line of storms. here's where the rain is falling over the next -- call it about 24 hours. and then, there's more after that. get the heaviest rain from houston, just outside of new orleans. we're talking two to four inches of rain at least. there will be places that come in with five inches. the worst winds will be in this area. there's an area of severe storms we have to cover in this as well. we had previously thought the northeast would be dry for most of the night tonight. we're amending that a little bit for parts of those areas. we're going to the entire forecast here. not surprising to make your halloween plans as we go throughout the morning and certainly within the next 10 to 15 minutes. >> it really is spreading. the next in the battle over obama care. after a rough day on capitol for hhs secretary, kathleen sebelius. she called the launch a debacle, apologized and took full

7:08 am
onslaught of republican criticism wednesday, after a memo surfaced showing the lead contractor, working on the site, warned of numerous problems. >> do you believe that two weeks was enough time to complete testing of the entire system? >> clearly not. >> reporter: a senior white house administration official tells abc news, that they understand that they gave the republicans this opportunity. but they believe, they're very confident, in fact, that once the website is fixed, that the american public will embrace obama care. george? >> and they know they have to meet that november deadline. jim, thanks very much. let's get the rest of the top stories from josh. >> we're going to begin with a big denial from the nsa this morning, dismissing reports that it spied on cardinals at the vatican. an italian magazine claims that the national security agency intercepted phone calls as cardinals gathered in march to elect the new pope. church leaders said they are not concerned about the reports. the nsa chief is denying allegations from edward snowden
7:09 am
that the agency tapped into google and yahoo! data centers. and breaking news right now, from the middle east, u.n. inspectors have just reported that syria has now destroyed all of its chemical weapon production equipment. that's one day ahead of the deadline. but the country still has roughly 1,000 tons of chemical weapons, including mustard gas and sarin. it has until the middle of next year to destroy those weapons. and troubling statements about the economy. the federal reserve is keeping its economic stimulus program in place for now. that means, printing more money to keep interest rates low. because it says the housing recovery is now starting to slow down, jobs are still not being created quickly enough. however, the fed is not saying just how long the stimulus will last. that uncertainty could hurt stocks on wall street today. speaking of, a rollercoaster ride for facebook. its stocks soared after the company reported big profits. then, sank after the company revealed a drop in the number of
7:10 am
teenagers using the site. and a police officer in milwaukee survived this chase. you're going to see, it came to a terrifying end. the suspect, he was pursuing, as you see here, lost control, struck a wall and then -- crashed into the officer's windshield. police say the suspect was drunk, driving more than 100 miles per hour. he had been driving own the wrong side of the road at one point. however, that officer will be okay. and finally, a really big oops. a delivery truck here in new york city, backing up. unfortunately, didn't see the ferrari behind it. rolled right over the hood. >> no, no, no, no. >> yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. not just any ferrari. a brand-new one. worth some $300,000. not all, though. the driver of said ferrari also got a ticket for double-parking. that, right there -- >> wow. that's a blood-thirsty crew.
7:11 am
cheers wildly. that's great. >> thank you. now, to the flying regulations that mean you have to turn off electronic devices from your phone to your tablet. just before takeoff and landing. well, all indications this morning that the government is about to set new guidelines that could allow you to use them during landing and takeoff. abc's david kerley has the story. >> reporter: this morning, this message -- >> turn off and put away all electronic devices. >> reporter: -- could be changing dramatically. the faa appears poised to allow the expanded use of devices during takeoff and landing. something that passengers have been calling for. and the man who sells ereaders, the head of amazon, have been calling for. >> all the signs are good that you're going to be able to sit back in your seat, on your airplane, and use your electronic devices. >> reporter: sources tell abc news, an advisory panel suggested to the faa, risks and solutions for our devices. that will most likely allow the use of ereaders, dvd player, and game consoles. but you will not be able to make a phone call or text.
7:12 am
no transmitting during landing and takeoff. why no calls? i brought five different devices here. >> okay. >> reporter: we went to boeing, which has learned in this lab and on a plane packed with potatoes, playing the role of you and me, that those cell signals -- >> you can see when it tries to get to the cell tower it really spikes. >> reporter: -- can interrupt radio oar even navigation systems. >> the device can contribute to an incident on an airplane. because you cause interference into a system doesn't necessarily mean that bad things can happen. but you increase the risk, the probability, that things could happen. >> reporter: the faa administrator just announced that he will allow airlines to expand the use of these devices. the government will provide guidelines. it's up to the airlines to meet those guidelines. nothing meet, george but down the road you will be able to use those devices on flights. george?
7:13 am
>> david, thanks very much. there's new revelations of n the suspicious death of a high school student in january. officials said it was an accident. was found rolled up in a gym mat at his high school. but now, a judge has released surveillance footage that could change that judgment. steve osunsami has the story. >> reporter: this is the surveillance video from the high school gym, showing that moments before hendrick johnson died. >> it's just one step closer find out what happened to my son. >> reporter: you see the high school athlete for only a brief second in the white shirt, with other students in the gym. police say sometime after walking past this camera, he reached into a rolled-up gym mat trying to get a shoe. and suffocated trying to get out. his family never believed this for a second. >> we still have a long way to go. but it's a start. >> reporter: the school system, the sheriff and the coroner have determined that johnson's death was an accident. but a judge agreed with johnson's family, ordering the release of this video, as well as the school's entire case file on the incident. including, most importantly, the
7:14 am
names of these minors playing ball and others who were in or near the gym. >> we now have the means with which to identify specific students. and what it is they claim to have seen. >> reporter: we talked with school officials who insisted there was no foul play. and that johnson's death was saddening. on facebook, johnson's father posted this picture of himself, questioning how anyone could squeeze into a gym mat on their own. a u.s. attorney watching the case is expected to comment today. for "good morning america," steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta. >> and we continue to think of that family. now, to a health warning about something that could be sitting in your kitchen cabinet. the fda reporting this morning, more than 10% of spices are contaminated with bug parts, salmonella. abc's chief medical editor, dr. richard besser is here with this. how serious is this, rich? >> the fda did a study.
7:15 am
they found that 12% of all of the imported spices are contaminated with insect parts or rodent hairs. 7% had salmonella. now, the bug parts aren't going to harm you but no one wants to eat those. the salmonella can cause disease. but probably less than we might think. because we tend to cook the spices and not use many of them. but there's probably disease we don't know about. because you usually think it's the chicken, not the perhaps rica. >> how do we keep these imports away from our table? >> the fda proposed new food safety rules to make sure that foreign suppliers are doing things properly. this is a wake-up call to them that they have to clean up the plants. when you see this in manufacturing, there's a problem. >> what can we do to protect yourselves? >> if you're someone, if you cook your food well, you're going to kill salmonella. if you're someone who is at high risk for salmonella, elderly, very young, or someone with an immune problem, you want to make sure the spices get cooked in well. that you're not adding them at the end.
7:16 am
right now, 90% of all of our spices are imported. and the labels don't have to say where they're coming from. >> a lot of us do it right at the end. >> that's right. and that won't protect you. >> okay. thanks a lot, rich. >> thank you, guys. we're going to turn, now, to a free speech battle that could go all the way to the supreme court. >> at issue, the bracelets worn by these girls to promote breast cancer awareness. the school says the language is not appropriate. and the girls are fighting back. linzie janis has the story. >> reporter: high school students brianna hawk and kayla martinez are in a battle with their former middle school over these bracelets. they say, i heart boobies, and are designed to raise awareness about breast cancer. but the easton, pennsylvania, school board says they're sexual and disruptive. and overnight, voted to appeal a federal court's decision upholding the rights of students to wear them, meaning the kiss could go all of the way to the supreme court. this morning, the girls say bring it on. >> i'm very dedicated in
7:17 am
fighting this because it's what i believe in. and i do believe that it's my freedom of speech. >> reporter: in a statement to abc news, the school district's attorney says it's simply trying to enforce the dress code, which prohibits attire or accessories that prohibits a double entendre. adding the school's principal, herself a breast cancer survivor, had several incidents reported to her, which boys had, quote, taken the bracelets as an invitation to make further unwanted inquiries about the breasts of the girls with the bracelets. we asked the girls if they had been harassed. >> usually, i ignore it. i would say that's not what the bracelet is for. >> just because a couple of boys don't know how to act maturely, the whole school shouldn't be punished. >> reporter: the teens have the aclu in their corner. >> this is definitely a first amendment freedom of speech issue. >> the bracelet is meant to target teens and the language that teens use now. it's meant for us to find our own way in supporting breast cancer. >> reporter: this battle over words started three years ago when the girls were attending the middle school and were suspended for wearing the bracelets.
7:18 am
they say teenagers are just more comfortable with the word boobies and makes it easier for them to talk about breast cancer. not sure how you feel about that one. >> they're trying to do something. they want to bring awareness. they thought it was a great way to do it. >> let's see what the court says about it. >> sam, you have more on the severe storms. >> i know. we have to talk about it. we doubled the size of the area we think are going to be involved in the storms in the rain for today. it's going to mean a lot of plans have to change. join me at the board, if you will. and we'll put this thing in motion. there's an area of low pressure, a powerful front. this means heavy rain in at least one-third of the country. let's go over this. from miami to raleigh, it's dry all day long, even into the night tonight. this rain does bend into northern areas. so, late tonight, if you're a late halloween person, then that's new york, you're going to get late showers, all the way to boston and beyond. but dry everywhere else. this is a large area. good news into the northwest that these are morning showers here. i think just about by trick or treat time, this drys out. you have a dry period of time.

7:32 am
he waits for a new trial. skakel, nephew to bobby kennedy's widow, ethel, was accused of killing his neighbor and friend, 15-year-old martha moxley, in 1975, on halloween night. the murder remains a mystery, until skakel was convicted in 2002. 25 years after the murder. his sentence, 20 years to life. moxley's brother, john, says the upcoming trial is opening old wounds. this retrial, is it for you like jumping into a time machine that just keeps taking you back to this really painful time? >> oh, it's just a death a thousand times. every time you do something like this, it takes hours, days off your life. >> reporter: skakel has always maintained his innocence. >> what i do every day is pray to god and to martha, that whoever did this crime is brought to justice. >> reporter: but why the sudden retrial now? well, last week, a judge ruled skakel's former lawyer, mickey
7:33 am
sherman, did not provide a constitutionally adequately defense. and that the failures were significant. robert f. kennedy jr., who said his cousin didn't do it, agrees. >> he was preoccupied with glitter and the celebrity. you know, he said at one point to the bar association when he spoke to them, he said he intends to have a lot of fun on this case. you know, it was a man's life at stake. >> reporter: did that lawyer get caught up in the glitter and celebrity of it all? >> i think mickey clearly enjoyed it. but i think that's his personality type. does it make him a bad lawyer? i don't think so. >> reporter: when you hear the kennedys say that? what do you think? >> i think the kennedys will say whatever they want to say. >> reporter: robert f. kennedy jr. told abc news, the suggestion that skakel may get away with murder is an attractive narrative. but he says it's simply not true. he insists police got the wrong guy, george. >> so many different angles, gio. let's talk to our chief league affairs anchor, dan abrams. again, this is kind of
7:34 am
confusing. people hear the conviction is overturned. of course, he has to be free, right? >> no. this is not a not guilty finding, by the court. what the court is saying, there were so many mistakes made by skakel's attorney, that he ought to get a new trial. for now, prosecutors get the right to appeal. what they're saying, hold off as a legal matter. he's not eligible for bail because now this case is in a different court. not with the judge who made this ruling. as a result, you have to hold off on doing anything, hold off on releasing him until that's resolved. if he is going to end up getting a new trial. meaning, if he survives the appeals, in effect, the prosecutors are saying, let's talk about it. but not until then. >> that is really the question. this was a pretty surprising decision. >> i'm stunned by this. i covered the whole case. did mickey sherman make some choices that were questionable? absolutely. did this reach the level of ineffective assistance of counsel?
7:35 am
you got to remember, ineffective assistance of counsel, typically cleans a lawyer was drunk, on drugs, not showing up for the case. the standard is so high. >> not just a lawyer makes mistakes. >> no. and the judge kept trying to say this. this isn't just about mistakes, et cetera. it sounded from his ruling like he was saying he thought that mickey made a number of mistakes. i think there's an important point to make. the kennedy family is saying, michael is innocent, et cetera. this is crazy. he ought to be released. fair enough. but what the judge is saying is that mickey sherman should have pointed the finger at another kennedy relative, tommy skakel, michael's brother. for all the claims that this has been a travesty of justice against michael skakel, which i know they believe it has been, what the judge is saying is the defense team ought to have pointed the finger at michael's brother, tommy, in connection with this. this is a bizarre case, a bizarre ruling. but i think it's an uphill battle for michael skakel to be released on bail immediately.

>> thanks very much. and another legal matter we've been following. the utah doctor on trial for the death of his wife found dead in the bathtub. emotional and dramatic testimony. three of martin macneill's own daughters testifying for the prosecution. aditi roy has the story. >> reporter: one by one, martin macneill's daughters faced the man accused of murdering their mother. >> i knew something bad happened with my dad. and he said, well, girls, you know, i don't know how to tell you this, but your mom's dead. >> reporter: sister sabrina, vanessa and alexis, spoke to jurors on wednesday, about the day michele macneill died. prs cuters say the former doctor gave his wife a deadly dose of painkillers, then placed her in a tub while she was recovering from cosmetic surgery investigators say he compelled her to have. >> my mom was hesitant to get the surgery. she was talking to my dad, saying that maybe we should

delay the surgery. he got really angry at my mom and said, no, you cannot do that. if you don't have the surgery now, you're not getting it. >> reporter: macneill says he is innocent. his lawyers argue michele died of a heart condition. but prosecutors say macneill killed his wife so he could continue an affair with gypsy willis, the woman who became the live-in nanny shortly after michele's death. >> i was convinced that she wasn't somebody to worry about that my dad might be involved with. >> why is that? >> because she was nothing like my mom. >> reporter: today the defense will continue cross examination examininging alexis, trying to prove she changed her story over the years. >> you got the phone records that were inconsistent with your memory. and you changed your story to harmonize with the phone records. >> i think i was getting the times wrong.
7:38 am
i know for a fact, this is when i talked with my mom for the last time. >> reporter: for "good morning america," aditi roy, abc news, san francisco. time for another check of the weather with sam. sam? >> we're going to back up to the board. come this way. we'll talk about the temperatures. i know it's difficult. a lot of folks spent a lot of time and effort on their costumes. you hate to cover them up on a cold halloween. there's a lot of places where you don't have to. take a look at the numbers. miami, raleigh, washington, these are all in the 70s. atlanta, you're in the 70s. new orleans, 84. some of the area is going to have heavy rain to deal with. but the mild air is here. the mild air makes a big move with the front. and the massive halloween storm in the middle of the country, by the time we get into friday night, probably wipes the entire coastline. saturday looks pretty good and clear. but ahead of that, or right along it, will be a line of strong storms. this does not have a snow component. it's unusual for a big storm like this time of year, to not have the cold air with it that kicks in snow. strong winds in the north. rain all the way along the front
7:39 am
and probably strong to severe storms even along this front as you watch it go coast to coast. on the w good morning. i'm mike nicco. total sunshine and warmer weather today on this halloween. temperatures, though, during the evening hours for trick-or-treating probably falling back into the upper 50s. warmest tomorrow. >> all that weather was brought to you by bailey's coffee creamers. and you could probably use some in duluth this morning. it has the chill behind that front. >> thanks, sam. coming up on "gma," extreme makeover going viral right now. a model transformed. why you can't always believe what you see. and our makeup room bursting at the seams right now. all of the beautiful people -- well. backstage, our big halloween reveal is just ahead. having fun here in times scare!
