7:06 am
with the freezing temperatures and the timing of the storm is key. while officials say folks could be able to get to work this morning, the drive home could be a completely different story. those temperatures here have not been above freezing for almost a week straight and nearly 6,000 people are without power still this morning. to put it lightly, it's been a long few days. and as you mentioned, those freezing temperatures coupled with the power outages have been blamed for 11 deaths across the state of tennessee with hypothermia being the cause for six of those deaths. gayle? >> got it. cuthbert langley. one of the best names on the show. this relentless cold is freezing the great lakes. this morning 98% of lake erie is covered by ice and that does not happen very often. dean reynolds is in chicago where winter is causing its own lake effect. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well it's lake michigan right behind me here.

7:09 am
idea of exactly what's going on. we hear subzero windchills out there. it's all about getting this arctic air into the eastern half of the country. you do that. it's the jet stream. when you get the big ridge in the jet stream think about this. the iditarod in alaska not enough snow. had to mievt to fairbanks. then in eastern u.s. from maine all the way to california we have windchill advisories windchill warnings. i'm talking anywhere east of the mississippi and there's a hard freeze warning. you're below freezing in west palm beach florida. we'll be establishing records for this date all around the country. new york city, we're at 2 degrees. it will drop to one. atlanta, 16 charlotte, 13. then it's about the weekend storm that's going to develop. five weeks in a row now we've had some kind of a storm on the
7:10 am
eastern coast of the united states. starts off as snow on saturday because it's so cold out there. but look at this. it turns to rain. even for a place like boston too warm for snow on sunday. back over to you. >> wow. lonnie thanks so much. this morning the fda is warning doctors about the medical devices behind the super bug. omar villafranca is there as doctors stress there is no threat to the public. omar, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. this is the type of tee advice that's causing all the problems. it's an endoscope similar to ones in hospitals that might carry the bacteria. this goes down a patient's throat through their stomach to look at the small intestine. there's a tiny camera at the end and a moveable part right there so doctors can manipulate a catheter. the tubing itself can move left

7:12 am
morning. >> reporter: one infected high school student has spent months in the hospital fighting the bug. the lawyer does not blame the hospital. they changed the device last year without changing its cleaning protocol. >> a change you can market to doctors that look what we've dub, now it is easy to use. too often they overlook the next step which is ensuring that the device is not dangerous. >> reporter: now, olympus who provides the endoscopes said they're working with fda and our customers regarding their concern. that's what the company said. >> omar thanks. >> this morning iraqi troops are making plans to take back the largest city held by isis in iraq. they'll be part of a spring offensive to retake mosul. the city fell to isil in june. holly williams is in istanbul
7:13 am
with a question as to whether some iraqi soldiers will be ready for the fight. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we were told a spring offensive on mosul is simply unrealistic. some say the earliest they could be ready is in the fall. an american military official says 10,000 iraqi soldiers have gone through training with the u.s. and its coalition partners and they'll push on isis this spring. backed by u.s.-led air strikes. just outside of mosul, another 3,000 men, mostly policemen, are being trained to help retake iraq's second largest city. but very few have any fighting experience, and they told us they're still short of weapons. also involved will be the kurdish soldiers.
7:14 am
from a hilltop overlooking mosul in october they showed us territory they clawed back from the extremists. but members of an ethnic minority, kurdish fighters will be considered foreign invaders if they try to recapture mosul alone and this month their commanders told us they're still massively outgunned by isis. what kind of equipment does isis have that you lack? >> isis seized weapons from both syria and the iraqi army so we're talking about at least 1,500 humvees, we're talking about 155 howitzer american, we're talking about armored vehicles. we're talking about tanks, heavy machine guns loads of ammunition. >> reporter: if this mosul offensive does go ahead in the spring it's not clear whether
7:15 am
it will involve u.s. military advisers already on the ground in iraq. charlie? >> holly, thanks. they're calling on social media sites to take more responsibility in the battle against isis. that's in our next half hour. two trains collided overnight in switzerland leaving at least five passengers injured. it happened in a small town 20 miles north of zurich. witnesses say a high-speed train crashed into the side of a commuter train. that forced cars right off the track. the passenger train had just left the station. it's not clear why the accident happened. in las vegas a suspected road rage killer is in custody after a two-hour standoff. it's reported that the mom and the shooter knew each other. the s.w.a.t. team surrounded his mother's home and demanded his surrender.
7:16 am
police believe nowsch fired the gun that killed tammy meyers mother of four. but we're told he's not alone. >> we have one more suspect to locate. >> reporter: nowsch and meyers were neighbors. their houses were a block apart. nowsch's mother arrived in the middle of the standoff. >> there's the animal a block away. >> reporter: meyers' husband robert also lashed out on the reporters on the scene. it happened last thursday night when meyers was giving her daughter a driving lesson. he became angry after crystal honked the horn at him. tammy drove her daughter home and took off hwith her 22-year-old son who was armed with a gun.
7:17 am
she was drytrying to draw the suspect away from her house. >> she was trying to protect me. that's all she was doing. >> reporter: when they returned the shooter struck tammy meyers in the head. >> i did what i had to do to protect my family. everyone can thing what they think. i did it for a reason. >> reporter: now his media account showed him with marijuana. meyers wife tried to help him. >> she fed him, gave him money, told him to pull his pants up, and be a man. >> reporter: meyers died two days later after being taken off life support. closing argument could come today in the american sniper trial in texas. the defense rested their case yesterday. psychiatrists testified that routh thought he was protecting himself when he killed navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle and kyle's friend. he told the jury that mental illness prevented him from

"boyhood" was the favorite. two weeks ago at the british version of the oscars it almost got completely shut out. it only one wonwon one award. the oscars a bit of an older voting body so i wonder if "birdman" is going to be too cool or too edgy for them in which case they'll vote for "boyhood," but it's close guys. >> what about "american sniper?" >> it's been the most exciting thing to happen and we now have bag block bust never the race. i don't think it's going to win many of the major categories it's nominated for.
