and what about a lightning hit? jets are designed their skin acts like a channel. think of it as an extension cord. the electricity passes over the skin without ever entering the fusela fuselage. french aviation and criminal investigators are on their way. they should be on the scene tomorrow. david. >> thank you. you heard david report there on the severe weather that likely brought down the plane. we are on the watch as we head into the weekend. look at the map. saturday and sunday more than 80 million americans in the storm zone this weekend. even possible tornados. all on the heels of the tornado we showed you last night. a confirmed ef-1 killing two. the new images showing the aftermath. rv's flipped. tents destroyed. and the decisions that made the difference between life and death. ginger zee is back tonight.

36 others. how do you keep your family safe while camping? always have a weather radio. when a warning is issued, take it seriously. have a plan. find a building where you can take shelter. if there is no shelter, a vehicle provides more protection than your tent. if you have bike helmets put them on. they'll protect your head. >> remember the helmets. we're going to need those tips as we head into the weekend. >> there's ha large area if you're camping anywhere tomorrow. parts of kansas city through chicago to cleveland. damaging winds large hail and flash flooding. that could be an issue. going into sunday it expands from nashville in central tennessee up through new jersey. let's time it out and show you what to expect when. you see it starts saturday at 4:00 p.m. the storms blow up there along the ohio river valley. then into nashville by 4:00 p.m. on sunday and i really wanted to

cease fire starting monday at the end of ramadan. they're not there yet. but the pressure is on. david. >> david, thank you. one more image. the conflict as seen from space. snapped by an astronaut. that astronaut writing today we do not see any borders from space. we move on to stunning details in the incident in a hospital in pennsylvania. the doctor pulled out a gun preventing a possible massacre. ron clay born on the scene tonight. >> reporter: this man was on a mission to kill. he arrived here at the hospital thursday to meet with the psychiatrist who had been treating hip for the last 20 years. >> he intended to kill dr. silverman when he showed up for
the appointment and that's why he brought the gun. >> the caseworker escorts him into dr. silverman's office. an argument breaks out and he allegedly shoots hunt in the head killing her. and opens fire on dr. silverman. the doctor pulls out a gun and managers to escape. he is seriously wounded. hospital workers quickly tackle him. police say plots was carrying 39 extra bullets. >> the doctor did not have the firearm. if the doctor did not utilize it, he would be dead today. i believe that other people in that facility would also be dead and we would be making funeral arrangements. >> reporter: silverman had a gun protect and regularly carried one to work. even though his hospital bans weapons on site. but officials are thanking dr.
silverman. >> reporter: both men were wounded in that. and dr. silverman was hit in the hand and suffered a grazing wound alongside his head but expected to make a full recovery. the hospital saying he is looking forward to welcoming back to work. >> just incredible. thanks. now to the mystery in seattle and for some the frightening sight in the sky. tourists spotting something strange buzzing around their space needle. some were waving at it. tonight we learned it was a drone. we ask here who was flying it. should anyone be allowed to fly a drone that close? now the debate. >> reporter: right there high in the seattle sky is a drone. the faa now telling abc news it is looking into that tiny remote controlled aircraft hovering above the observation deck of the space needle.
while curious tourists waved the object gave security quite a scare. police say the man launched the drone out of his hotel room window. >> he wasn't trying to do anything wrong. >> reporter:s the just the latest incident raising questions about whether it's safe to fly drones above crowded cities. take a look at this drone buzzing over the busy streets of new york last year and crash landing nearly hitting pedestrians at the height of rush hour. and there have been close calls with airplanes. >> we just saw a little drone below us. >> reporter: coming within 200 feet of a jumbo jet. drones like these are exploding in popularity. but the rules already in place for how and where they can fly haven't caught up yit. the faa is working on new safety guidelines but could be a couple years before they take effect. until then, police will keep their eyes on the skies.

while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, this can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain, and improve daily physical function so moving is easier. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain. and it's not a narcotic you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. thischance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine,
