>> it went down in shallow water as parts of the plane luggage and victims are being pulled from the water this morning. and now investigators are going to start looking for answers about what exactly went wrong here. we already have some early clues. the victims were not wearing life jackets and the plane appears to be largely intact. >> we have full team coverage beginning with abc's terry moran in jakarta, indonesia this morning. terry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, amy. good evening from here. and as darkness falls as you point out, this is a now a recovery operation. but it's one that has been paused now because of heavy weather in the crash area. but teams were out there all day collecting debris and bodies. and for the families, they were expecting the worst. but when the worst came, it was agony. in the waters of the java sea, the pieces of wreckage were clearly visible. some had red and white markings like the missing airasia plane. in surabaya where the families
waited, it was a shattering sight. gone, no longer missing, their loved ones are gone now. here, the moment a woman learns that bodies have been found in the water. 162 men, women and children aboard that flight. so many left behind heartbroken. medical teams were rushed in to help those overcome by grief. this morning in the bright tropical sun, searchers and local fishermen spotted the wreckage in the water. divers went in to recover bodies. none had life preservers on, officials confirmed. the debris field about six miles from the last point of contact with the plane, in shallow waters about 100 feet deep. officials say an emergency exit door and other pieces were found and under the water, the shadow of a plane could be made out, they say, suggesting the aircraft was more or less intact when it hit the water. now the investigation begins and
the grief deepens. there is a silver lining for investigators in all of this. this plane came down in shallow waters. they are confident, aviation experts are, that they will find those crucial black boxes. dan? >> that is one key point of all this. terry, thank you. as terry mentioned, now that the wreckage has been found, investigators can start trying to solve the mystery of what brought the plane down. and abc's david kerley is here with that part of the story. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. along with the grim task of recovering bodies, the physical detective work begins now. everything that is picked up from the surface in the debris field and from the bottom of the social the java sea, can produce clues as to what happened to flight 8501. how will this debris, the corpses provide clues? if there are burn marks on pieces of metal, we will know there was fire. those pieces carry serial numbers that will identify the
aircraft. the lack of life preservers on bodies could suggest there was was not time for the crew to communicate to passengers a. even where the debris is found on the water will yield information. if the debris field is narrow, that would suggest the jetliner hit the water largely intact. if the field is much wider, spread out, that could mean a breakup in the air and the pieces rained down on to the java sea. we know that the a320 hit bad weather at 32,000 feet and requested to climb to 38,000 feet. but even severe turbulence should not damage an aircraft. jetmakers put their planes through a series of stress tests to ensure they can stand up to a battering. so what happened at 32,000 feet? the weather may have been a factor but there could have been system failures. what became catastrophic failures because of actions taken by the pilots. >> if you're flying in difficult conditions like that, maybe the crew's taking inappropriate actions with the airplanes that lead to further problems which they failed to correct.
>> reporter: 447, the air france crash over the atlantic, the crew didn't realize the jet was flying too slowly. some of the instruments were providing incorrect information and the plane stalled, basically stopped flying and started falling to earth. >> a swept wing airplane will start stalling and get get into a high rate of descent with the nose still up in many cases and that's exactly what happened with the airbus a-330 in air france. >> reporter: how will we know? those black boxes carried by the air indonesia jetliner. the batteries last 30 days. we've already lost three days so the scramble will be on. once found as we found at the ntsb black box lab, technicians can remove computer chips. >> it looks pretty much like this. >> reporter: those chips will provide not only the out yoi recording of the crew but hundreds if not thousands of bits of information about the systems on the jetliner and the inputs made by the crew. the indonesians had just asked the u.s. to help in the search.
they will now need help with this investigation. a lab that can take one of these black boxes and extract that vital information. first they have to find them. the good news the pingers in 100 feet of water, not that deep. we have lost three days, amy, but that gives them 27 days to try to find these boxes. >> thanks, david, for the latest on that and let's bring in abc aviation consultant colonel stephen ganyard. we've heard about what they found so far. notably a shadow in the depths of that ocean that looks as if the plane is largely intact. what does that tell you about what may have happened at 32,000 feet? >> well, that it's intriguing, amy. think of this now as a crime scene investigation. every little piece of debris, where it is, the condition it's in is going to tell the investigators or at least give them clues to actually what happened. as david was talking about, the debris field and what it looks like is going to be very important. if there is, in fact, a shadow that looks like an airplane
under the water, it would suggest that the airplane came down fairly slowly. maybe it was in a stall mushing to the ground at maybe 100, 150 miles an hour. it did not hit at a high rate of speed which would have dispersed lots of debris all over and we wouldn't see that shadow so they'll look at the big pieces. what will they see? is there a fuselage there? are both wings attached? if both wings are attached it will tell you something different than if just one were there. we need to get to those black boxes which will reveal all the details we need. >> and, steve, if indeed it was a stall and a slow descent, would there be a possibility of survivors as it hit the ocean like we saw in the miracle on the hudson? >> no, you know, it's not that slow. it's not a controlled ditching where the pilot would have had time to slowly fly the airplane into the ocean. this would have been a violent unsurvivable event. >> and up until this year we're always told that the most dangerous time of being in a plane is at takeoff and at landing.
and that when you're in midair that's typically the safest time but these incidents this year have certainly given all of us major pause about that advice. >> you're exactly right and we don't have the answers now but we will have those answers very soon. remember, amy, the key here in a safety investigation, find out what went wrong and make sure that it never happens again. >> all right, stephen ganyard, we appreciate it. thanks so much. >> we will continue to cover this story all day long on abc news and abcnews.com, but we are going to move on to a damaging revelation from one of the most powerful republicans in congress. just days before the gop takes control on capitol hill, one of the party's top leaders is acknowledging that he gave a speech to a hate group more than a decade ago, so let's go to washington now and abc's jon karl. jon, this is really not what republicans need at a time when they're trying to win over minorities. >> reporter: that's for sure dan, and this looks bad. the person in question here is
steve scalise, the third highest ranking republican in congress and his office is now acknowledging that about ten years ago he spoke before a group that was started by neo-nazi kkk leader david duke down in louisiana. now, his office is saying and he is saying that when he spoke to this group he did not realize what their views were, didn't realize how objectionable they were and in a statement his office has put out he says he has never been affiliated with the abhorrent group in question. the hate-fueled ignorance and intolerance the group projects is in stark contradiction to what mr. scalise believes and practices as a father husband and devoted catholic. now it remains to be seen if that's going to be good enough. we have reached out to speaker of the house john boehner speaker of the house, for comment on this. none yet. >> so the question, can he keep his spot as the number three top republican in the house of representatives? this is not the only story breaking this morning involving the republican party. overnight we learned that new york congressman michael grimm is going to resign after he pleaded guilty to tax evasion.
can you tell us more about that? >> reporter: that's right. well, it looks like congressman grimm now soon to be former congressman grimm is more likely to spend the next two years in prison than in congress. this is a very colorful figure and not only did he plead guilty to tax evasion, you may remember this is the guy who threatened to throw a reporter off a balcony earlier this year. he, it looks like, will not be coming back to congress. >> he vowed he would not resign but it appears that speaker boehner may have convinced him otherwise. jon karl thank you for your reporting from washington this morning. amy, over to you. >> well, a lot of us are waking up with much colder temperatures and today an icy blast sending those temperatures plunging as we get ready to celebrate the new year. it is the coldest weather of the year in some places and ginger is tracking it all. >> that is so true. pasadena, the rose parade on thursday, could potentially be the coldest that we've seen in some 100 years so looking for potential tie of a record. they're literally going to be freezing. and then we're also have ingingeing
winter weather advisories and snow on the las vegas strip. it's digging deep with advisories, warnings and back to socal. this morning, winter slicing into half the nation. whipping winds and subzero temperatures. snow furious lyly racing across frozen roads in park city, utah. winds up to 40 miles per hour. in kansas, waves of wind, plus temps in the low teens, a wreck on the roads. and in the southeast this morning, south valdosta, georgia, recovering after this reported tornado caught on security camera tore across the town. >> the grounds are unsafe. there's electrical wires that's down on the ground. >> reporter: workers running for cover as it approaches. major damage across the city, scattering parts of buildings. >> we were just trying to get up on the vehicles and stuff to try to avoid it because the building was just -- the top of the building was just flying off. all you could see was the roof being peeled apart.
>> reporter: and check out this dramatic video, a tornado caught on a cell phone camera last week in columbia, mississippi. that arctic air mass dropping temperatures and windchills far below zero this morning. look at the windchill advisories from northern michigan and wisconsin, down into the panhandle of oklahoma and texas. the real spots that we're worried about are the warning areas from idaho into southern wyoming, west nebraska and west kansas. the temperatures, again, 19 below, north platte. and just to let you know it's not stopping there. midnight temperatures take us into the teens right there in the great lakes. new york city, 20s. >> you know you seem to be enjoying the low temperatures too much just for the record. >> i'm not, i promise you. >> she's promising a january warm-up. i made that up. >> don't listen to dan. >> don't let me forecast the weather. thank you. we're going to move now to health news and this morning new and worrying numbers about the flu. the cdc is reporting a big jump in flu activity. in america 22 states with high flu activity, up from 13 the week before.
and abc's dr. richard besser is here with more on this. so is part of the reason for yet another early flu season the fact that the vaccine this year was a poor match for the strain of the flu that's out there? >> i don't think that's what's going on. but there's something unusual going on with the flu. for the past four years, flu has started to peak at the end of december. it used to be that flu didn't have its rise until february or early march. but for some reason flu has been coming earlier and earlier and hitting during that holiday season. >> i mentioned the fact that the vaccine is not a great match for the strain out there right now. given that, is it still worth getting a flu shot? >> i think it is. this year you're right. the flu strain that's out there causing disease is not the one that's in the vaccine but there may be some level of cross protection. we won't know that probably until march or april when they look back but i still think it should provide some protection. it's the best thing that you can do to cut down your risk. >> go get the shot, you're protecting yourself and people around you potentially. one last question. we did speak to one doctor who said that he worried that the
strain that's out there this year is particularly dangerous for children. you do not share that view. why not? >> well, the flu is always dangerous for children. on an average year 100 children die. so far this year, 15. it's worth protecting your kids. >> all right. rich besser thank you very much. we appreciate it. a lot of other news overnight. for that we get it over to ryan for a look at the headlines. >> good morning, dan, good morning, amy. we begin with the dramatic rescue. a man becoming trapped in his suv after crashing into this canal in phoenix. take a look at that. his suv on its side. he was holding on to the steering wheel for his life. his face barely above the cold water when rescuers finally arrived and shattered that window pulling him out with just seconds to spare. breaking details overnight about that ferry disaster. in europe at least ten people have been killed in the fire and rescue effort off greece. and now there's word that two sailors who were helping to stabilize the ship with rope had been killed in the accident. now confusion remains about
exactly how many people may still be missing. a street protest in los angeles remained peaceful overnight after a new autopsy was revealed in the police shooting of an unarmed black man. it reveals that ezell ford was shot three times at close range, once in the back and police say ford had grabbed the officer's gun but ford's family say that he was mentally ill and harmless. meanwhile new york's mayor is meeting with the police union after he was booed at the police graduation ceremony on monday. it's the latest example of rising tensions between police and the mayor after a deadly ambush on two officers earlier this month. now, take a look at this. meteor sightings in the hundreds by the way were reported in the northeast overnight. this one, take a look right there, top of your screen top right caught on a new jersey camera. there it goes, flashing through the sky right there, a ball of blue and orange light. some sightings were also reported in california. imagine catching that on the road. now to some misbehavior on the football field. the student coach at texas a&m has been fined this morning
after he was caught -- actually he was fired. he was caught punching and shoving two out of bounds west virginia players who had run out of bounds during the liberty bowl. the video went viral. he was fired by halftime. a young couple got the surprise of their lives on their wedding day. in hawaii they were forced to relocate their ceremony on a golf course because president obama had scheduled a tee time at the same location. when the president found out he called the couple, two army captains, and apologized. take a listen. >> congratulations on your wedding. i feel terrible. nobody told us. >> it was a blessing in disguise. >> we just went right above the 16th hole so we were watching you golf. >> well, that must have been kind of painful. >> oh, the couple invited the president to their reception and mentioned it would be an open bar, right. he politely declined, i should say. now, the president did ask them where they were going on their honeymoon since they were
already stationed in hawaii. that's kind of hard to beat but they haven't decided yet. i'm thinking maybe the white house. you get to stay there. no? >> why not? >> exactly, why not. >> thank you, ryan. let's move on to all that colder air that's been moving east. ginger with the latest. >> just in time for us all to feel like the new year is going to start with a chill and it has dug as far south as arkansas. looks pretty but prickly and cold here. thank you to debbie for that. i told you about southern california being in parts of the winter weather advisories but we'll also see some freeze warnings back in the southwest. so i'm going to tell you california, places like the hollywood sign, 1700 feet or so, the snow levels are dropping to 2,000 feet. so it's going to be that close they get some snow. cold end to the year. new york city dropping in the 20s and the next couple of mornings it'll feel even colder than that. your local forecast 30 seconds away. tuesday trivia brought to you by mazda.

these are high temperatures. 3 in denver, 5 in minneapolis, 76 in orlando. we'll check in on a warm spot next. how about that. >> just to confirm i was wrong about the january warm-up. >> you're always wrong, dan. >> sounds like my wife. thanks, ginger. appreciate it. coming up here on "gma," the mysterious disappearance of a young nurse. why these 32 seconds of available video may hold the clue to finding him. also ahead, a survival story. a surfer attacked by a great white shark living to tell his story. how he managed to escape its jaws. new uses for your old phone. putting that discarded device to work for everything from home entertainment to home security. at discarded device to work for everything from home entertainment to home security. what's that you're drinking? it's trop50 with calcium. it has delicious new taste and has 50% less calories. with this taste? no way. give me fifty squats. it can't taste this good read the label ...and have 50% less calories? exactly. now you drop... ...and give me the 50.
