7:00 am
meeting of the u.n. security council. west coast washout. powerful el nino storms slamming california right now. rushing floodwaters overwhelming homes and pouring into this restaurant. dangerous muddy waters are trapping drivers and more rain is on the way. outrage after this 10-year-old girl was patted down by a tsa agent at the airport. her father furious capturing his daughter's discomfort on his cell phone and the carry-on item that set off the search of this young girl. this is what it feels like and we're taking you to the land of fire and ice. amy teaming up with some of the fiercest adventurers in the world going live beneath the surface of the glacier. one of the most forbidding places on the planet. why what they are going to reveal this morning will impact every one of us here at home. the incredible live event only
7:01 am
and we do say, good morning, america, from here in times square and iceland this morning, so much excitement for this unprecedented live event. i guarantee you are going to learn something new this morning and as you can see, amy is there, we're going to learn something and it's also very cold, right, amy? >> that's right. robin, by far this is the coolest live shot i have ever been a part of literally and figuratively. we are standing in the middle of the melting glacier and scattered all throughout this glacier are massive vertical sinkholes that are treacherous going hundreds and thousands of feet into the earth where ice is melting faster and faster as water levels in the atlantic rise even more. now, behind me i have an intrepid group of ice climbers who are helping researchers gather data about that melting ice and how it affects all of us, all of our shorelines. we have an amazing never before
7:02 am
just a minute. cannot wait to bring it to you guys. >> unbelievable. >> looks like a green screen. it looks so unbelievable? >> another planet. >> really incredible. >> we'll have a lot more from iceland. we begin with breaking news overnight. north korea claims it has detonated a hydrogen bomb. if true, this would be a major breakthrough for the rogue state. it's already ratcheting up tension around the world, the u.n. security council calling an emergency meeting and martha raddatz starts us off. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. the u.s. immediately launched so-called nuclear sniffer planes to try to determine whether or not north korea's claims are true, but it could be weeks if not longer before we know for certain. the announcement came from north korean state media claiming that the tremors which caused a 5.1 magnitude earthquake in the northeast part of the country were the result of north korea's first successful test of a
7:03 am
those are far more sophisticated and about a thousand times more powerful than atomic bombs like those dropped on hiroshima and nagasaki in world war ii. there has been no confirmation and lots of skepticism, but it raises immediate concern about north korea's nuclear program. earning condemnation from countries around the world, including north korea's friend, china. this would be the country's fourth time testing a nuclear weapon since 2006 but it would be the first time testing a thermonuclear weapon. there is as we noted a lot of skepticism as to whether this was a hydrogen bomb because the initial size and s sle of the tremor is similar to tests in the past but, george, no one wants to rule it out just yet. >> not at all and the north koreans saying a miniature hydrogen bomb. you talked about that there. what can the world do about this?
7:04 am
heavily sanctioned it's hard to see what else they can do and the bottom line is that if this is a hydrogen bomb or any kind of nuclear test, those sanctions and the condemnation clearly have not worked, george. >> okay, martha raddatz, thanks very much. startling to wake up to that news this morning. now to those powerful storms slamming the west coast. a series of them moving in, one each day triggering torrential downpours and flooding in california. and abc's indra petersons is in glendora, california, this morning. good morning, indra. >> reporter: drought conditions in california you would think rain would be welcome but for residents here el nino means too much rain way too fast. overnight a west coast washout. >> here comes el nino. >> reporter: el nino-fueled rains drenching california where roads became rivers proving fun for some but dangerous for others. floodwaters invading backyards.
7:05 am
>> reporter: parking garages, and this restaurant. hotel, muddy waters full of debris trapping many commuters in their cars. take a look at the street. you're seeing rails lining both sides, something you see on a freeway but this hillside above me is bare and 15 minutes quarter of inch rain is expected to take mud barreling down the street. today they're more concerned. they added steel-enforced wooden barriers hoping this will keep the heavier rain expected today. robin. >> indra, we'll talk about that. thank you so much. rob, those storms as we just heard not letting up. >> really, robin. we haven't seen a series of storms like this in a week for over five years in california. this is serious business. flash flood watches that remain up through at least tonight for several more pulses.
7:06 am
from san francisco to los angeles and another pulse coming through tonight and tomorrow morning. locally up to 5 inches of rainfall and another one coming in behind that. snow, of course, at the higher elevations but with another storm coming this weekend and really in january this is when el nino storms start to hit california and we are just beginning this onslaught. george, back over to you. >> thanks. we move on to the battle over gun control right now and those tears from president obama during his passionate pitch for new action yesterday. >> and from every family who never imagined that their loved one would be taken from our lives by a bullet from a gun -- >> pierre thomas in washington. pierre, the president's anger and emotions so palpable yesterday. but the opponents of his new executive action are putting up a fierce fight too. >> reporter: good morning,
7:07 am
the president clear impacted by the daily carnage in places like chicago and all those mass shootings especially newtown, tears flowing as he announced a series of actions from increasing the number of firearm sellers at gun shows who must register with the federal government and do background checks to better tracking of guns lost in shipping and asking congress for a half billion dollars to expand mental health treatment but reaction from the nra and the gop was fast and as the nra calling the president condescending. george, i was struck by all those families from the tragedies some who told me they are in this fight for the very long haul. >> they say they want to lead a movement. >> gun control a big issue on tuesday. also last night donald trump continue to take aim at bill
7:08 am
respond directly to the gop front-runner's attacks and abc's cecilia vega is here with the latest on that. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: rob and george, good morning to you. a new attack line from donald trump with those iowa caucuses right around the corner. it is all on the line right now. it has become donald trump's go-to attack line in 2016 and this morning, he is back at it. the gop front-runner not mincing any words when it comes to bill clinton's past. >> don't forget he lost his law license. he wasn't allowed -- he was impeached. there's a lot of things going on there and she calls me sexist. >> reporter: overnight in new hampshire, trump's eye still on that target. >> the one person that hillary does not want to run against is donald trump, believe me and bill doesn't want it either. >> reporter: hillary clinton sticking to her new year's resolution to not respond. >> we should not reward people who use inflammatory rhetoric who use the kind of derogatory comments. is not a sign of leadership.
7:09 am
>> reporter: the race for the white house heated on all sides. and standing directly in clinton's path, vermont senator bernie sanders. yesterday in iowa she did not hold back. >> i'm a progressive who likes to get things done and i will get into that white house, i don't need a tour. i know right where the oval office is. i know right how to get things done. >> reporter: yeah, clinton had another jab for sanders also asking those iowa voters to not just take into consideration things like experience and qualifications when choosing a electability and brings in the big gun today bill clinton hitting the trail in iowa for his first solo campaign trip there, george. >> okay, cecilia and bernie here now. candidate. from hillary clinton in a second. first breaking news overnight from north korea. another nuclear test, perhaps a hydrogen bomb, if you were in the oval office what would you do about it? >> flean on china. china is north korea's closest ally. they'll have to push north korea
7:10 am
international agreements. >> how do we lean on china? >> china, we have a relationship. china is equally concerned about what north korea is doing. north korea is a paranoid isolated nation. they are -- when you have a hydrogen bomb, if that's true, you are a threat to china, as well. >> how about this argument from hillary clinton clearly believes that she can make the pitch she's far more electable than you are. >> i would suggest secretary clinton look at the last quinnipiac poll which has me leading trump by a significantly higher margin than she does and that's true of other poll, as well, look, two things, number one i believe that our campaign is generating the kind of grassroots excitement that will result in a high voter turnout. democrats need a high voter turnout to win. i think we can do that. second of all, for a variety of reasons i think we can do better against trump or other republicans than can secretary clinton. >> what's the number one reason?
7:11 am
is that the issues that we are talking about, the disappearing middle class, massive levels of income and wealth inequality and the fact that wall street's greed has had a huge impact on the lives of millions of people, people want leadership now to stand up to the big money interests, protect working people, that's what i've done my whole life. >> secretary clinton says her plans to take on wall street are tougher than yours. >> actually they are not. we're talking about breaking up the large financial institutions, so that the middle class of this country will not again have to bail them out. we're talking about the reality that when you have a handful of banks, half a dozen banks that have assets equivalent to 60% of the gdp of america. that's dangerous to our economy and political life. you have to break them up and re-establish glass-stegall legislation. that is not secretary clinton's position. >> a lot of experts said that's not fundamentally at the core of what the problem is but i -- >> i disagree with that. that is exactly what the core is. >> so many were created by the banks that weren't under glass-steagall.
7:12 am
financial institutions. >> you've also said that you're upset that the leaders of those financial institutions, some did not go to jail. can you point to any one that there was evidence they committed a crime. >> since 2009, large financial institutions have paid over $200 billion in fines. now, if you're paying $200 billion in fines for illegal activity and reaching settlements with the government, you tell me if there was not culpability. >> can you name an individual? >> give you one example, wachovia, which was later bought by wells fargo, was convicted of laundering mexican drug money. what do you think? you think somebody might be guilty? $200 billion in fines. nobody prosecuted. i think what you have is a situation where banks are not only too big to fail, bankers are too big to jail. >> 3 1/2 weeks away from iowa.
7:13 am
>> we got a great shot. there's a lot of enthusiasm. we're bringing out big crowds. >> senator sanders, thanks for joining us this morning. >> we appreciate the candidates continuing to come to our studios. we turn to ethan couch, new details this morning about the so-called affluenza teen's wild night while on the run in mexico with his mother as she gets ready to head back to texas to face charges after her day in court. abc's matt gutman has the latest. >> reporter: there's a first words we've heard from tonya couch -- >> yes, i do. >> reporter: the mother of the so-called affluenza teen since she and her son ethan took off for mexico. >> are you the tonya couch that is wanted by the state of texas? >> yes. >> reporter: the suburban mom with the red ringlets mostly obscured behind the bars accepting extradition to texas. her lawyer telling us she's committed no crime. >> how would you describe her? >> her two main concerns remain about her son, ethan and how he is doing in mexico and her dog virgil.
7:14 am
he met his attorney for the first time tuesday. >> we had a chance to confer but i'm not at liberty to disclose what we talked about. >> reporter: ethan is fighting deportation to texas where authorities hope to charge him with violating probation and tonya with hindering his apprehension. the boy's whose legal team cried affluenza during his drunk driving trial in 2013 may have caught another case of it while on the run in mexico, staff at this puerto vallarta strip joint telling abc news he spent at least one night here. employees telling us he was not alone. his mother went with him. employees say she left and he stayed drinking heavily going into a vip room with two female employees. staffers tell us he got staggeringly drunk, racked up a $1,000 bill mostly on lap dances and when he couldn't pay the bill they hauled him back to his resort and his mother, who also couldn't pay, ended up leaving his rolex as collateral. robin. >> all righty there, matt. thanks so much. our thanks to you.
7:15 am
powerball fever. the big drawing is tonight. >> it is tonight and the jackpot has soared to one of the biggest ever now up to $450 million. there are a lot of people lined up. i could tell right now we're going to be lined up after we get off the air. your odds of winning very long -- abc's t.j. holmes is going to break it all down for us at fordham university football stadium. good morning to you. >> hey, strahan, robin, i am here at coffey field with a simple dime to illustrate your chances of winning the lottery tonight. are you ready? now, i'm going to blindfold you both, bring you down here and tell you to walk out on this field, walk directly to that dime and pick it up. those are your odds of winning toongt. i've put together an analysis that will help you improve your odds. first of all, don't pick numbers based on your kids' birthdays or
7:16 am
in fact, don't pick the numbers at all. let the computer do it. 70% to 80% of powerball jackpot winning tickets have been computer picks but if you insist on picking the numbers yourself, try these, 8, 54, 14, 39, 13. those are the most frequently drawn numbers in the past four years. another way to improve your odds, move to pennsylvania. 16 jackpot winners have come from that state the past 13 years. after that indiana and missouri both 11 winners each. even if you don't win the jackpot there are going to be tonight. but the thing is most of those millions of winners are only going to win 4 bucks for matching one number. that's something. >> that's it? or that dime because i will -- >> yeah. >> excited about that dime you threw out there. hey, t.j., thank you very much. all right, michael, we'll turn to a disturbing scene with this high school ref and a
7:17 am
>> yeah, not the best show of sportsmanship and was all caught on video during a game in langhorn, pennsylvania. police were called to this high school after a coach appeared to head butt a ref. there is the coach. he's walking towards the ref. jerry devine, he leans in and the ref goes down and the announcer tried to stay it was the coach's body language after he went down to say i didn't mean to head butt him but he just -- >> the video says it all. >> the video says it all. the referee was not hurt in any of this. >> that's good. >> but i think if you're going to be a coach you got to be a great example. >> come on. >> you have to display sportsmanship if you expect your players to display it. this got out of hand. >> as an athlete you know emotions get wild but you have to hold it in check. >> you're the coach. >> you're the leader, the teacher. >> that video doesn't lie. >> he leaned in on that. michael, thank you very much. it's a little bit warmer here on the east coast. >> a little bit. but still scenes like this at least yesterday in bryant park, the fountain there.
7:18 am
moderating. still a chilly morning. no doubt about that. windchills in the teens and 20s all the way down to atlanta, georgia, but we'll start to moderate things quickly as we go through time. milder air coming in. into the 40s and even 50s in new york city, same deal in boston,

a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't accept is getting out there with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i will. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that really mattered to me. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't have to set records. but i'm still going for my personal best.
7:21 am
reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. lowe's presents "how to be good at math". how much money do you think we saved today? a lot. now get $5 off hgtv home by sherwin-williams ovation interior paint. if you could see your cough, it's just a cough. you'd see how often you cough all day

7:29 am
minute. >> boy, that is iceland this morning. >> that is. >> we have a lot of big stories we're following including that claim from north korea that it detonated a hydrogen bomb overnight. this would be a disturbing breakthrough for the state. the u.n. security council calling an emergency meeting this morning as the u.s. investigates north korea's claims. it's a big day for baseball fans, the newest members of the hall of fame to be announced later today. ken griffey jr. expected to headline the new class. big question, will former mets catcher mike piazza also be among the players voted in. >> one on this desk knows what it's like to be a hall of famer. >> good luck to all those baseball hall-of-famers. >> do you remember the anticipation whether you're going to get in or not. >> yes, very nerve-racking. it's an honor but boy, what a nerve-racking process. >> i still remember your speech in canton, a good one. we are counting down to our plunge into the ice. amy and the team are getting ready. oh, it's just gorgeous there, amy.
7:30 am
thank you and, yes, we have got an elite group of ice climbers right behind us and you can see they are preparing their lines, going through all the safety checks, getting ready to do the first ever live plunge, plummet, descent into this massive ice tunnel and you're going to want to see what they discover because what they find out about this place affects everyone back at home and it's coming up momentarily, stay with us. you're going to want to watch this. >> what's happening there is felt all around the world. that is all coming up. we begin with the case of a former model and her father, an ex-fbi agent both now charged with murder for the killing of her husband. their lawyer says it was self-defense. we have the story. >> reporter: it all centers around one fateful night and a reported argument. now two people are accused of murder and two young children orphaned. she is a former model. her father a former fbi agent. and this morning, both are
7:31 am
husband. police say molly martens corbett and tom martens killed jason corbett. in his home last summer. tom called 9/11 at 3:00 a.m. on august 2 saying his irish son-in-law was dead. there had been an argument and he struck corbett with a baseball bat. now after months of investigation, the district attorney is charging them with second degree murder and voluntary manslaughter. >> they committed a homicide that caused the death of mr. corbett. >> reporter: but lawyers for the father and daughter say it was self-defense. >> he was the one that called 911. tom tried to revive jason. he's trained in law enforcement and there would be no reason for him to act any way inconsistent with that except to protect himself and his daughter. >> reporter: molly martens met jason corbett, a widower in ireland in 2008 when she served as the family au pair taking
7:32 am
in 2011, the couple married and moved to america. immediately after her husband's death, martens made several attempts to gain custody of his children. but a judge handing them over to corbett's family. at the time, martens lashing out on facebook posting notes given to her by the children who called her mom and writing, it is unbearable to think of people purposely teaching to you hate the mother that has raised, nurtured and loved you for as long as you could remember. both molly and tom martens are out on bail. due back in court later on this month and are expected to plead not guilty. if convicted they could face up to life in prison. >> what a story. >> poor kids. >> thank you. now to the anger over that young girl patted down while going through security at a north carolina airport. her outraged father recording the entire incident on his cell phone and abc's kayna whitworth is here with that story for us. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. her dad calling it invasive and
7:33 am
he plans on filing a complaint against the tsa after he says he was left fuming when his 10-year-old daughter was subjected to a pat-down. a pouch of juice inside this purse leading to what one father believes was an excessive pat-down on his daughter. >> we're going to do a pat-down and start at her head and work my way down to her feet. >> reporter: at raleigh-durham they subjected vendela brainerd-payne to the two-minute procedure leaving the girl feeling uncomfortable and her father outraged. >> i felt it was incredibly inappropriate, very invasive and it really violated my daughter. >> reporter: kevin payne capturing the incident and his daughter's discomfort on his cell phone. >> kept doing it over and over. i felt very uncomfortable. i felt like screaming. >> reporter: payne plans on filing a complaint with the help of congressman scott peters.
7:34 am
telling "good morning america" that screening procedures allow for the pat-down of a child under certain circumstances. the process by which the child was patted down followed approved procedures. the tsa also stating that the child's bag contained a cell phone that alarmed requiring additional resolution procedures. the tsa has modified their screening policies in the last few years to reduce the likelihood of a pat-down for children so kids under 12 can leave on their shoes and a light jacket and like you saw on that video they won't be separated from their parents but clearly that's not enough for payne who also pointed out that his daughter's pat-down lasted nearly two minutes. >> the tsa is in a tough position. you know, they're there to protect us and something like this happens, the father was able to watch. you have young daughters. i mean, how would you feel if you saw that. >> you know what, i think i would be okay with it because i'd rather err on the side of caution instead of, you know, people could use a child to get
7:35 am
think that's where the hard part for the tsa comes in. where you draw the line? that's the point of the tsa. they don't want to let anything get through and the point of the parent wants to protect his children. he handled it well. in the end you hear him thanking the tsa for doing their job. all this time i thought the hardest part of those capri suns were getting the straw in. >> who knew? but it's been very lively, the discussion on social media. >> yes. >> about this. good to have you here on the west coast. >> thank you so much for having me. >> coming up, the fbi joins the search right now for a serial jewel thief caught on camera robbing multiple stores. how she made off with what could be millions of dollars in jewels.

7:38 am
oh! it was come on in pop pop. happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding.
7:39 am
like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta. 7:41. we are back now with the hunt

first thing is we have to remember make sleep a priority. if you don't commit to that in terms of your health trust me, things will suffer and fall like the second thing i say is we have to drop the guilt. no one is going to die if the dishwasher is not loaded or so whatever doesn't get done by the time we need to shut it down, it doesn't get done. we don't need any more guilt and try not to self-medicate. whether that's with alcohol, over the counter prescription aids, these things can work in the short term but in the long term really not good and if you have questions talk to your doctor or pharmacist about it and lastly -- >> meditation. >> you got it, girl. >> i just started that last year. makes the difference. >> i do it too. i will tell you 20 minutes a day, i hear from my patients that i write a prescription, meditate. it costs nothing. it can make a huge difference. >> we'll talk more about meditation next week. thank you. you're going to be busy on twitter again. also go to our facebook page, as well with any questions that you have.

8:14 am
>> yeah, so right now it's actually retreating at about 300 feet every year. so it's going almost a foot a day that it's retreating back but it's also thinning and lowering at about 100 feet a year right now. >> all right. >> it's retreating and thinning. >> as we watch our climbers descend into this tunnel, this ice cave, how and why do these form in the first place? >> yeah, these are melt water ponds that form on top of the glacier from warm days and actually cloudy days sometimes too and those ponds suddenly drain through cracks in the glacier and expose these amazing vertical tunnels. >> all right. we also want to say as we're watching these incredible climbers go down into this hole, how do they measure -- you mention numberings, how fast these glaciers are melting. how do they measure that? >> yeah, here in iceland actually there is a long tradition of icelandic people monitoring and marking where the
8:15 am
doing that. now we can do some with satellite technology and we're doing it with drones now. >> right and how do scientists use these drones for their research? what do these drones show them that we couldn't have otherwise seen. >> right, drones are really sorting cutting edge technology for scientists. they give us access to places we otherwise couldn't get to and able to monitor things closely on a daily basis that way and what's amazing is they give us realtime and 3d information about how earth's fast is changing. >> and do you know what the bottom looks like as we're watching this incredible video of our climbers? i mean this is really remarkable watching them scale this massive ice wall. it takes tremendous skill, tremendous expert but it's all to get to the bottom, what do you expect they'll see when they

>> we'kingt meing ic li drained out through this cavern system, got to the base of the glacier and probably helped him flow faster and thin and end up in the sea. >> incredible and, george, you have a question. >> i wanted to ask dan, first of all, such a stunning sight but have we ever seen melting like this before in other periods of history or is this all brand new? >> have we ever seen, george wants to know periods of melting like this in history or is this the first of its kind that we know of. >> yeah, so throughout geologic time and certainly for the last 2 million years we've gone through warm periods but what we're seeing is a real rapid increase in the rate of thinning and melting that we're seeing and that's related to human induced climate change. >> now, robin, you have a question. >> i do. could you ask dan how does this compare, what we're seeing here, other places in the world,
8:17 am
are -- have glaciers. >> dan, robin wants to know how -- what we're seeing here, this melting, how does it compare to other glaciers around the world, say, in greenland or in other areas you've studied antarctica, as well.
