7:02 am
the winter wallop. two storms targeting millions right now. a possible nor'easter dumping snow and freezing rain beginning tonight and ginger is tracking it all from detroit. good morning, ginger. >> hey, good morning to you, amy. yes, it is mostly rain right now. will be strong storms but let me take you to the radar because this thing, that's already in florida, georgia and alabama, will move up the coast. it will eventually meet that cold air and that's why overnight we have winter weather advisories from north carolina to maine. a wintry mess of snow and rain spinning across the nation. in west texas, snow, crippling from el paso to amarillo. time-lapse video showes snow ago accumulateing 13 inches in less than 10 hours. that was in amarillo where they haven't had that much snow in two years. in new mexico cars stranded on highways. >> this is horrible. >> reporter: and in colorado, a 67-year-old dying after he and his snowplow plunged into this freezing lake.
7:03 am
>> it's very upsetting needless to say. >> target's out at 3:00. >> reporter: flooding forcing a heart-stopping water rescue. a 39-year-old woman stranded in this washed-out road. a tree limb her only lifeline. >> we're pretty confident we can execute a hoist and extract her. from that spot. >> reporter: in the dark of night a rescue helicopter swarming in. the first responder dangling below. >> directly over the target. >> reporter: hoisting her to safety. >> patient's out of the water. >> reporter: more flooding outside houston. >> it was probably six, seven, eight inches. it was pretty high. >> reporter: the storm now moving east threatening millions from the deep south to new england this weekend. and this is only storm number one. we will eventually get to the other but let me take you through the timing. we have the storm moving through the mid-atlantic into the overnight hours. the snow is the beginning of it right along the i-95 corridor. but watch that. all strong storms. then as it gets to new york city overnight it's snow and
7:04 am
then transitions to a rain/snow mix. some sleet, boston picks up on a lot of snow so gave you the timing. out of here by late saturday night. you want to see the snow totals from number one storm, just northwest of boston, 6 to 10 inches. new york to the west is where you'll see the most in that heavy white area. that's where you'll see the higher elevations picking up some. don't worry, i have that other storm coming at you soon. >> thanks a lot for that, ginger. we're staying inside tomorrow. we'll move to the super bowl scandal. tom brady you saw took questions yesterday claimed he couldn't tell the footballs had been deflated and surprised everyone by saying he hadn't yet been questioned by the nfl. abc's paula faris outside gillette stadium in foxborough with the latest. good morning, paula. >> reporter: good morning, to you, george. tom brady was peppered with questions for roughly 45 minutes yesterday. wow, some of those were extremely direct, including is he a cheater. brady repeatedly denied involvement in deflate-gate but some of his peers are not buying his story. with the eyes of the world on him, tom brady stepped up to the podium denying any knowledge of deflate-gate.
7:05 am
>> i don't know what happened. i mean i -- i have no explanation for it. >> reporter: he admitted to picking out the footballs he wants before the game but says he then leaves it entirely up to the equipment managers to break them in. >> i don't want anyone touching the balls after that. i don't want anyone rubbing them, you know, putting any air in them, taking any air out. >> reporter: he claims he didn't notice a difference in the footballs during the game. >> i just assumed they were exactly the same the first half as the second half. >> reporter: but also expressed a preference for footballs at a very specific air pressure. >> i like them at the way that i like them which is at 12.5. i mean to me that's a perfect grip for the football. >> reporter: former pro bowl quarterback mark brunell was one of many associated with the nfl who are expressing doubt about brady's claims. >> and i don't believe there is an equipment manager in the nfl that would on his own initiative deflate a ball without the starting quarterback's approval. >> reporter: also surprising, brady revealing league officials
7:06 am
who have been investigating the claim since monday have not even spoken with him yet. >> but, you know, they may. they may. i think that's their -- i think that's obviously their choice. >> reporter: so, why not speak to the man front and center of the controversy right away? the nfl telling abc news they are not commenting. during that 30-minute press conference brady fielding some tough questions. >> is tom brady a cheater? >> i don't believe so. i mean i feel like i've always played within the rules. >> reporter: at times composed. at times defensive. >> this isn't isis. this isn't -- you know, no one is dying. but, you know, we'll get through this. >> what do you say to the fans of the patriot nation. >> what would you like me to say. >> reporter: his head coach, for 15 years bill belichick, speaking out hours earlier, also claiming he was unaware of any improprieties. >> i have never talked to any player, staff member about football air pressure.
7:07 am
>> reporter: but telling the assembled media only brady would know how he likes his footballs. so here's what we know. 11 of those 12 footballs were tampered with. we just don't know who did it. the question now is, will the league come down hard on the patriots as some are calling for them to do? well, you just heard it. as of yesterday the league hadn't even contacted brady regarding this investigation, george. >> yeah, that was pretty stunning. okay, paula, thanks so much. let's talk to jesse palmer from espn. you played quarterback in the nfl. we heard him say he liked 12.5 but didn't notice it wasn't 2.5. >> i wouldn't believe that. quarterbacks, again, so particular about the footballs they throw in these football games. it's kind of like your starbucks order. some like brand-new footballs. some like worn in and some like inflated, deflated. i don't know if there's a quarterback that could say, that's about 12.5 pounds per square inch of air in that football but it is a feel thing and certainly in my opinion tom
7:08 am
brady would have known those footballs were deflated. >> so, what could have happened to the football before it got to him after he chose the 12, gave them to the equipment manager? >> you know, they get inspected by referees 2 hours and 15 minutes prior to the game. but, even in that window before the game, the equipment staff would have had access to the footballs. tom brady could have had access to them again inside the locker room minutes before the start of the game. >> he wouldn't be -- >> certainly tom brady, absolutely did not put the pin but somebody did, because, again, 11 of the 12 being deflated is not just an abnormality. >> what is going on with the nfl, haven't questioned him yet. >> why wouldn't you go to the source? ultimately they know before every single game, quarterbacks get to pick the footballs they want to use. usually it happens the day before the football game. that to me is the most surprising thing that they had not yet questioned him or asked -- >> leads a lot to say they're slow-walking this and they just want to get through the game and whatever happens after the game happens. >> it will be a huge distraction for the new england patriots, something they have to deal with
7:09 am
with respect to their integrity, with respect to their legacies and bill belichick and tom brady, you're right. this is right now normally talking about xs and os on the field what's going to happen. it's been remarkable to see this thing blow up. >> you've got denials from brady and denials from belichick. are we ever going to know? >> unless you have a picture or video evidence of somebody with a needle inside the football taking air out i don't think you'll ever know fully what happened. >> thanks so much. >> thank you. now to the fate of those hostages being held by the terror group isis. the deadline to pay for their release has passed this morning. one of their mothers with a last-minute plea for their release and abc's brian ross is here with the very latest. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning. japanese and u.s. officials are bracing for bad news this morning as the deadline passed in the last few hours. and intelligence analysts are searching the internet for what they fear will be another disturbing execution video. officials say that the request from isis for $200 million in ransom was a nonstarter from the beginning as isis must have known.
7:10 am
overnight in tokyo the mother of one of the hostages made a last-minute emotional appeal to isis to spare her son. her son is a respected japanese television correspondent, kenji goto, remembered today by colleagues as a careful person. >> he's not a gung ho war journalist. he cares about humanity. >> reporter: before he went to syria, goto even left behind this video. saying only he was to blame if he was captured by isis. the other hostage is haruna yukawa, a self-described japanese adventurer who was captured by isis last year and accused then of being an american spy. if isis goes through with its threats today it will bring to seven the number of hostages killed by the purported executioner dubbed jihadi john because of his british accent. >> you now have 72 hours to pressure your government in making a wise decision. >> reporter: the same masked man is believed to have presided
7:11 am
over the murders of americans james foley, american steve sotloff, britain's david haynes, alan henning and american peter kassig. they know the identity of the masked man but have not made it public as they seek ways to capture or kill him. and, amy, despite all those air strikes against isis, jihadi john and his brutal gang of killers remain very much in business. >> brain, i know there is other news in the war on terror. a big blow to the united states, one of our key allies in the fight against al qaeda in turmoil. >> that's right. in yemen, the president, the prime minister and the parliament all forced to resign by a rebel group. that government has been very helpful to the u.s. in fighting al qaeda in yemen. that's the group that tried to do the underwear bomb against the u.s. and is actively plotted against the u.s. without the government's help it makes it difficult for the u.s. to counter the al qaeda efforts there. >> all right, brian ross, thank you so much. george. we're going to turn to
7:12 am
politics now, the race for the 2016 republican nomination kicking into gear right now with a major forum in iowa. a friendly summit between jeb bush and mitt romney in utah and another major candidate about to throw his hat into the ring. jon karl has that exclusive news from washington. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. abc news has learned that florida senator marco rubio has started taking concrete steps towards launching a presidential campaign. as one of rubio's top advisers tells me, quote, he told us to proceed as if he is running for president. i am told rubio has hired a top republican fund-raiser to serve as the finance director of a presidential campaign. he plans a big fund-raising swing through california. will miss votes in the senate all next week followed by a trip to all the early primary state, florida, iowa, new hampshire, south carolina and, of course, iowa. so, george, there had been a lot of speculation that rubio would not run because of jeb bush taking steps towards his own campaign but it sure looks like rubio is going no matter what jeb bush does. >> at least not yet. not dropping out yet.
7:13 am
about jeb bush, we saw that kind of remarkable meeting yesterday between jeb bush and mitt romney out in utah but it doesn't appear they reached any kind of accommodation or deal or anything like that. >> reporter: not at all. they had a meeting in utah but coming out of that meeting, no move away from what mitt romney had been telling people before the meeting which is his decision on running for president will have nothing to do with what jeb does. >> and a lot of the candidates are going to be out there in iowa this weekend for the first big forum. i know you're going to be out there, as well. a lot more with you sunday on "this week." now to ryan smith with today's other top stories. good morning. we begin with growing security at the airport. this morning the department of homeland security has revealed that the tsa seized a record number of guns inside passenger carry-ons last year, more than 2200 firearms at airports nationwide. that's a huge increase from the year before. more than 80% of the firearms were loaded. and saudi arabia, a vital u.s. ally, has a new leader
7:14 am
after the death of king abdullah. king salman is promising to continue his country's policies and otherwise prices rose after the news of abdullah's death but that is expected to be temporary. some breaking news here. a fire sweeping through an entire block of buildings near pittsburgh. four buildings engulfed in flames. at least one of those has collapsed and there are reports that two people may be trapped. we'll bring you more information as we get it. in new jersey, that massive fire that displaced more than 1,000 people thursday has been ruled an accident. investigators say maintenance workers using a blowtorch to repair the plumbing sparked the fire. it was still smoldering 36 hours later. and in northern california five workers injured after this highway bridge under construction suddenly collapsed. two workers were briefly trapped under the wood and concrete. fortunately that section was closed to drivers. it did come just three days after an overpass collapsed in cincinnati killing a worker and injuring a truck driver. and a violent scene caught on camera in london. take a look.
7:15 am
a man being hailed as a hero, see that? took him down, tackling an armed robber with a machete. police say the suspect had just robbed a jewelry store when that man on the crowded street jumped on his back struggling with the suspect. a police officer in plainclothes also responded and the suspect running away but he was later arrested in the parking garage. brave man there. and a dramatic rescue at sea. take a look at this video. five fishermen you see here were forced to jump into heavy surf after their fishing boat sank in bad weather. you see the boat on its side. look at that. the fishermen desperately trying to hold on, stay above water pushed right off that boat happening near scotland. the coast guard eventually plucked all five men from the water and a few had to be treated for hypothermia but they are okay. and finally, this stunner from the miss universe competition. take a look at what miss canada was wearing. as you know, canadians love their hockey, maybe she loves it a little too much and miss
7:16 am
canada -- you see her wearing hockey sticks for wings. of course, the stanley cup is a crown because that would be the natural crown much maple leaf corset, her boots were tied up with hockey laces and get this, a working scoreboard was attached to her back. >> of course, it was. >> i don't think she scored highly, amy. >> ooh. >> oh. >> at least she wasn't wearing the goalie mask. i thought she looked lovely. good job. >> i don't think so. maybe too much. >> nicely done. >> that's too much? >> nah. thank you for the segue, though, ryan, because we are going to continue with sports and good morning to everybody. the controversy in the world of tennis is what we're talking about. questions about sexism this morning. some of the biggest stars including serena williams and rising star eugenie bouchard asked to spin around on the court and show off their outfits during the australian open. it is the twirl that has heads spinning this morning. >> can you give us a twirl and tell us about your outfit. >> reporter: just moments after seventh-ranked eugenie bouchard
7:17 am
crushed her opponent in 54 minutes to advance to the third round at the australian open, 71-year-old tennis australia commentator ian cohen asked her to twirl on the court. this just days after he asked superstar serena williams to do the same thing. >> i didn't really want to twirl because i just was like, you know, i don't need all the extra attention. >> you know, i'm fine with being asked to twirl if they ask the guys to flex their muscles and stuff. >> reporter: soon #twirlgate erupting on twitter with outraged viewers calling it sexist and disgusting and williams saying male tennis stars would never be asked to twirl. >> i necessarily wouldn't ask rafa to twirl or roger to twirl. >> this is a reality. for female athletes. some might think it's harmless but it has an impact of minimizing the performance on the field of play. >> reporter: tennis legend billie jean king speaking for many when she wrote the australian open interviewer
7:18 am
asking the women to twirl on court is out of line. but bouchard is determined not to let cohen's request impact the rest of her tournament. >> i don't know, just some old guy asking you to twirl is funny. >> not worried about her. things working out just fine for bouchard. just hours ago she won her third round match against caroline garcia to advance to the round of 16, and i don't know, amy, is there something to it if the fwirls are going to be asked to twirl, he should ask the guys to flex. >> how about focus on the game and not about what we're wearing. >> she played like a rock star and that is what we should be talking about. >> that's what i want to remember. >> hear, hear. let's go to ginger. a lot of flooding overnight. rains. what do you got? >> yeah, there is. we're going to get right to the flash flood warnings. but first where i'm at, the detroit auto show, more than 500 vehicles on display. i think i found one of my favorites, the corvette, the

and you know, we have the perfect playlist to pump people up at the gym. sara brings us the science behind your workout in just a bit. but first, we begin with dramatic testimony in that bombshell trial in tennessee. two former vanderbilt university football players accused of sexually assaulting a female student. the alleged victim taking the stand on thursday and abc's steve osunsami has that story. >> what's the next thing that you remember? >> i remember waking up in an unfamiliar room at 8-something the next morning. >> reporter: the alleged rape victim at vanderbilt university finally telling her story to tennessee jurors. to protect her identity the court is keeping her off camera and we're altering her voice. >> and did you feel injuries at that time? >> i did. i was sore all over. >> reporter: she's now 21 years old and working on a ph.d. in neuroscience. the former dance team member says she was drinking that night in june of 2013, saying she met up with former vanderbilt football player brandon vandenburg at a bar before she blacked out. >> had you ever had this feeling from drinking before the way you were feeling that day? >> i never felt like that in my life.

7:33 am
"20/20" at 10:00 p.m./9:00 eastern on abc. we're going to move on to more on deflate-gate. what it means for tom brady and his supermodel wife gisele bundchen. what kind of fallout might they face from all the controversy? paula faris back with that. hey, paula. >> reporter: good to see you again, george. you know, they are gridiron's golden couple, tom and gisele collectively worth hundreds of millions of dollars. ironically, if tom brady needs any advice on how to handle this particular pr storm all he has to do is look across the dinner table. part supermodel, part super bowl. tom brady and gisele bundchen are the ultimate power couple, the doting parents of two adorable children. ♪ and the take it to the bank powerhouse is behind their own multimillion-dollar brand. >> they have endorsements like other people have kleenex. they're the model couple of america right now. >> reporter: but this morning, brady finding himself in unfamiliar territory. >> is tom brady a cheater? >> i don't believe so. >> reporter: as deflate-gate
7:34 am
threatens to tarnish the golden boy image that's made him so marketable. >> pancakes. >> good morning. >> let's do this. >> reporter: for so long. the backlash evident on social media and late night tv. >> if you weren't aware of this story, you would think tom brady had killed the president's dog. >> reporter: even one of brady's opponents is blowing the whistle on his squeaky clean image. >> i think people somehow get a skewed view of tom brady that he's just a clean-cut does everything right and never says a bad word to anyone. and we know him to be otherwise. >> reporter: unlike brady, gisele has long been a lightning rod for controversy angering some women with her opinionated views about pregnancy and breast-feeding. even calling out her husband's teammates blaming them for losing the super bowl in 2012. >> he didn't catch the ball when he was supposed to catch the ball. my husband cannot [ bleep ]
7:35 am
throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. >> reporter: of course, that hasn't stopped her from making history. she's the world's highest paid model so can brady the bad pr storm too? experts say that depends on one key thing. >> if it's proven tom knew about this, despite his denials in front of the camera, it's going to have a very detrimental effect on his brand. if no one can prove he knew anything about it, he will get through it unscathed. >> reporter: so let's be honest. it's really hard not to like tom brady. i love this tweet, jimmy kimmel tweeted last night. he said, "tom, i think what we're trying to say is we don't believe you, but we still like you and think you're handsome." touche, george. apropos. >> jimmy kimmel, that was great. okay, paula, thanks very much. and let's go to amy in the social square with "the speed feed." george, tom brady and deflate-gate ruling -- trending on your feeds this morning and also driving traffic is nascar legend jeff gordon, get it, driving traffic. the race car driver announced
