on 2015 jetta and passat models. good morning, america. happening now, extreme weather alert from coast to coast. dangerous roads as almost a foot of snow falls in parts of the midwest. wind chills plunge below zero in the northeast and severe storms expected from texas to illinois bringing hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes and the west bracing for a record heat wave. breaking overnight. taking aim. texas senator ted cruz becomes the first major candidate to announce he's running for the white house. the combative tea party favorite who shut down the government for days over obamacare, taking to twitter overnight, saying he's ready to begin the fight for the presidency. deadly helicopter crash. a chopper going down in this million-dollar estate tearing a massive hole into the roof killing three and causing a fiery wreck. >> i need removed immediately.
7:01 am
>> the collision scattering debris all over the block. the search for clues right now. and then the chaos on the ski slope. a chair lift stopping and careening backwards, panicked skiers jumping to safety. seven people recovering and one of the families on that wild ride speaking out this morning. the investigation right now into what went wrong. and good morning, everyone. happy monday. great to have "world news tonight" anchor david muir sitting here. >> yeah, david! >> we should be so lucky. >> you guys said, come on in and celebrate spring. take a look at the live picture from chicago. this is just unreal. happy monday. traffic is moving because we're so used to it this winter. but, boy, it's the winter that just won't end. >> yeah there's extreme weather
7:02 am
all across the country. the northeast plunged back into a deep freeze this morning. i had a hello when i walked out of my apartment. >> i didn't know where you were going to go there for a second. >> yes, it was brisk to say the least, and severe storms are the way in the middle of the country. ginger tracking it all. >> the flakes we're seeing from chicago came from minnesota, up to a half foot or more in some places. look at this video and listen. >> um, not good. >> and off the road he goes. fortunately he's okay and so are many others that had to deal with all of that snow. the snow still falling in parts of wisconsin and northern illinois and that's what will show up. it's not over this week. there's more coming for parts of minnesota. western wisconsin, tuesday night into wednesday. so, shot after shot of early spring snow, not as out of the ordinary there. but this is slightly below average. look, wind chill in new york is 12 this morning. 1 for syracuse and buffalo is 8.
7:03 am
you'll have strong winds and hail, damaging winds possible tomorrow and an isolated tornado anywhere from southern illinois to texas by the time we reach wednesday. some areas looking very much like spring, david. >> was that guy driving as he was videotaping? >> he has a mounted camera. >> oh, right. okay. >> thanks, ginger. we're going to turn to politics. the race for the white house kicking off. texas senator ted cruz announcing on twitter overnight that he's running for president becoming the first major candidate to officially enter the race and jon karl live at the white house. good morning. >> good morning, david. cruz jumped into this race trying to be the conservatives' conservative, somebody who delights in not just fighting liberals but mainstream republicans, too. overnight texas senator ted cruz announced he is jumping into the presidential race. >> i'm ready to stand with you. to lead the fight. >> reporter: cruz and his family did a walk-through at liberty
7:04 am
university, even practicing the waving and kissing. cruz enters the race trying to be the man to the right of just about everybody. >> actions speak far, far louder than words. >> reporter: what has ted cruz done. most famously he led the fight against obamacare that culminated in a government shutdown for 16 days. following cruz's 21-hour talkathon and even some dr. seuss. >> i do not like them, sam i am. >> reporter: the fight earned cruz lots of enemies, many of them republicans in congress. how much do your colleagues just despise you right now on the floor? i hear some really strong language. >> given the choice between being reviled in washington, d.c. and appreciated in texas, or reviled in texas and appreciated in washington, i would take the former 100 out of 100 times. >> reporter: the son of a cuban immigrant father, cruz was a
7:05 am
champion debater at princeton and a harvard law grad. cruz's election in 2012 came as a jolt to the republican establishment. he beat the texas lieutenant governor who had more money and the endorsements of virtually all the republican leaders in the state. >> they said it was impossible. >> reporter: no doubt they'll say the same as he shoots higher this time around. cruz may be the first candidate to jump into the 2016 race but, david, there are by some counts more than 20 republicans who are at least thinking about running for president. so, this is going to be a very crowded race. >> all right, jon, we love how you choose your questions carefully there. david, we turn now to a new threat from isis. the brutal terror group allegedly posting a hit list online targeting american troops revealing the personal information of 100 service members and urging sympathizers to kill them. the military is notifying everyone on that list and abc's martha radditz has the latest.
7:06 am
good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, amy. we have never seen a threat quite like this. and while it has not been proven yet to come directly from isis, it clearly comes from someone inspired by the terrorist group. the online threat is chilling. 100 names, addresses, photographs, which we are blurring, of our sailors, marines and airmen. a group calling itself the islamic state hacking division, urging all muslims to find the service members here at home. >> what they hope to do is inspire or motivate someone here in the united states to attack or kill these service members or their families. >> reporter: the military now trying to contact everyone on the hit list. abc news found several of those service members privately, one was not surprised that the u.s. military would be targeted. another found it regrettable and one said, this is just a way they are trying to intimidate us and it's not going to work. i wouldn't say i'm scared.
7:07 am
it's just part of this new war most of the information publicly available. >> the department of defense has been very active over the past many years of reminding service members and their families to be very cautious about the information that you put on social media. >> reporter: but, as of this morning, some of those on the list still have highly visible profiles on social media. this is being taken very seriously. the chairman of the homeland security committee telling me there could be homegrown violent extremists who are capable of following through with this threat. >> and isis claiming credit for two significant attacks in just one week. the situation in yemen is deteriorating. what is the level of concern among u.s. officials about this? >> well, in yemen they are so concerned that, over the weekend, we evacuated all of our special operations forces including navy s.e.a.l.s. that means we have no presence on the ground. and this is a nation where the terrorist threat to the u.s. is considered one of the most
7:08 am
dangerous in the world, amy. >> all right, martha, chilling news. david. >> we're going to turn now to the deadly helicopter crash that went down in an upscale orlando neighbor killing three onboard and igniting the fire. federal regulators are investigating what caused the crash. abc's reena ninan has the story. >> we have smoke and fire showing from c-charlie the structure. >> reporter: this morning federal investigators on the scene of this crash in an upscale orlando neighborhood. >> a garage attachment. to a two-story house. >> reporter: three people confirmed dead after their helicopter crashed into the guest house of this million-dollar estate. just after 2:00 p.m. the chopper going down after reportedly taking off from orlando executive airport two miles away. >> requesting a return back to the hq ramp. >> 242. proceed inbound. on the downtown arrival. >> it wasn't running right and all of a sudden i heard a big explosion.
7:09 am
>> reporter: the collision scattering pieces of the aircraft across the block. neighbors quickly calling 911. >> we have lots of bystanders, i need removed immediately. >> reporter: you can see the massive hole. the chopper buried deep inside. fortunately there was no one in the apartment at the time of the crash. >> you can see part of the fuselage and the flames got really intense real quick. >> reporter: fire officials finding the helicopter's pilot and two other dead in the wreckage. for "good morning america" reena ninan, abc news, new york. >> and now to the manhunt for the gunman who seriously wounded a woman on her way to work. kate hafford out of the hospital this morning after being shot on a houston highway. police are hoping drivers who saw that shooting will come forward. abc's ryan owens has the story. >> one suv run off the road and shot after her. >> reporter: just days after being shot in the head kate hafford is out of the hospital. investigators hoping she soon might be well enough to create a

composite sketch of the man who shot her. this morning all they know he was wearing a baseball cap. and driving a white chevy tahoe. >> he was one individual and the situation stemmed from a road rage situation. >> reporter: the gunman last seen on a gridlocked interstate 45 here in houston. >> she's bleeding from the head. think she's been shot. >> reporter: hafford, a 21-year-old on her way to work at a gas company didn't realize she had been shot but somehow manages to get off the interstate and call 911. >> she was in and out. she blacked out several times at the scene but she was coherent enough to give investigating officers some information to help us in the case. >> reporter: here's what she told them happened. as she's merging on to i-45 she admits to honking at the drive she says cut her off. that's when she said that he started to taunt her, ultimately pulling up right next to her
7:11 am
firing that shot through the passenger side window and driving off. bullet fragments pierced her head and neck. >> nobody deserves this. >> reporter: doctors removed those fragments on friday. hafford's husband calls her quick recovery a miracle. >> she's a tough cookie. she's a tough cookie. she's going to be all right. >> reporter: hafford may be out of the hospital this morning but she is not recovering at home. she's semimri too afraid to go there. as long as this shooter is still on the loose and who could blame her, amy. >> no. absolutely not. we hope they catch him soon. thank you. now to "gma" weekend anchor dan harris with the other top stories beginning with new tensions at uva. there are two big stories brewing there today. today police expect today release the findings of an investigation into an alleged gang rape at the university of virginia. this investigation was prompted by a widely disputed article in "rolling stone" magazine and it comes at an extremely tense time on campus following the racially
7:12 am
charged case of martese johnson, he's the black student taken down by alcohol control officers outside of a bar. abc's linsey davis has the very latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. lots going on on uva's campus. "rolling stone" magazine has since admitted that some mistakes were made in the reporting of that story and the alleged sexual assault that supposedly took place at this fraternity behind me. today, we're going to find out how egregious those mistakes were as a new investigation is under way into the arrest of martese johnson. >> yo, his head is bleeding! his head is bleeding! >> reporter: a new voice this morning giving insight into the moments leading up to this disturbing scene of this uva student pinned down and bleeding from his head. >> i go to uva! i go to uva! >> reporter: after the 20-year-old johnson was carded and turned away from a pub, alcoholic beverage control agents questioned and arrested him, claiming he was agitated charging him with public intoxication and obstruction of
7:13 am
justice. but the co-owner of the bar now speaking out giving his own account of johnson's demeanor. >> i didn't think he was intoxicated at all. he was very cordial. i actually asked him what high school he went to. he was just disappointed he didn't get in. >> reporter: johnson released a statement through his attorney, saying that he hopes his scars will heal, but the trauma will stay with him forever. charlottesville police chief tim longo saying the incident was unfortunate and disturbing. >> this campus, these students, this community, this city has been through a lot in the past several months, and, once again, here we are on the national stage over just an unfortunate event. >> reporter: and the police chief making another reference there to the "rolling stone" magazine and subsequent scandal and fallout. of course, we're expecting to hear the conclusion to that investigation later on today.
7:14 am
dan. >> a big day on campus. today, the supreme court is going to a hear a case on free speech. the dmv in the state of texas banned this specialty plate. featuring a con fe fed rate flag. it simply wants to honor the soldiers who fought for the south in the civil war and they argue the ban is a violation of free speech. but the state says the plate is government property and it has the right to control the message. look at this, close call on a highway in new hampshire. on a highway. a teenager hit a snow bank and went airborne dangle over a live river 75 feet below that bridge. he managed to climb down safely, but he was cited for failure to stay in the roadway. >> right between the mustard and mayonnaise. one more story to tell you about. you may remember pope francis recently mentioned how much he loves pizza. when he made a visit to
7:15 am
the italian city of naples, these guys from a local pizza shop showed up to give him a special pie with the words for the pope on it. when francis rolled by, a successful handoff. the pope actually takes the pizza. the owner of the pizza shop says he does not know yet whether the pope actually ate it and tells us he's not angry the pope completely failed to tip him. i'm making that up. the pope didn't have time. but it does tell you a lot about the pope's lack of security. he is insistent on staying open to the crowd. >> he was delivering that pizza for the -- >> he called it in. >> yes. thanks, dan. we're going to turn now to march madness and the mayhem. the sweet 16 opening weekend of the tournament filled with buzzer beaters, bracket busters. >> nice iliteration. >> like that? abc's paula faris has it all. for villanova fans. >> march madness mayhem. of the 11 million espn brackets
7:16 am
not a single person has a perfect bracket this morning. emotions and upsets. it's the nature of the game because in march madness if you win, you advance. but if you lose, you're going home. lucky seven proving to be the winning number at this year's sweet 16. >> that will do it! >> reporter: as michigan state and wichita state both seven seeds stunning their second seed opponents. >> heading on to the regional. >> tip your hat to michigan state! >> reporter: while they rejoiced, reminders that the road to the final four is paved with broken brackets and lined with tears. remember last week's "cinderella" story of georgia state with rj hunter shooting the game-winning basketball with just seconds remaining? a moment so surprising it knocked the head coach who happens to be hunter's father off his stool. >> georgia state! >> reporter: well, for georgia state, the ball is now over after a heartbreaking loss on saturday. >> rj hunter.
7:17 am
a huge hug for his father, ron. >> i love this kid, man. i love him. >> reporter: the parties also come to an end for number one seed villanova, a team that many brackets had making it to the final four. but it is this teary moment in the bandstand going viral this morning. a piccolo player sobbing her way through the villanova fight song and being comforted by meme memes of her with joe biden and john travolta. >> i'm a senior and it was just really hitting me hard that i wasn't going to be playing there ever again for that team. >> so many emotions. the average seed remaining in the tournament is 4.4. and we can all resume pseudo-productivity at work until thursday because that's when the games resume. >> you're going to bring yours? >> my piccolo? i was a clarinet player.
7:18 am
>> i was too, i admit. that's what i was. >> it's cool, guys. all of you that played the oboe, it's very cool. how about we start with a look at spring. i promised you this, it does look like spring in some places. look at arkansas, the flowers are blooming and, even though severe weather on the way, you have a mild day ahead. aside from the fire danger in parts of the plains, you have got that wind, midland will go to 84 today. amarillo will do the same. kansas city, 62, and rapid city, 61. it was a warm one in denver again. close to 70. very hot the end of the week in los angeles. we'll talk more about that. but for now we've got to get the select cities.
7:19 am

8:19 am
