flooded jersey shore. remember, this is just three years after superstorm sandy. more troubles for that region. and we want you to check out this video -- dump trucks ready to pitch in and clean up all that snow, ready to move in. washington, d.c., along with philadelphia as well, all paralyzed this morning. >> look at this. this is time-lapsed imagery out of virginia. this gives you a sense of how fast and furious the snowfall was on saturday. it was coming down in some places at two inches an hour. >> and it looks benign. but it wasn't necessarily so benign. we can't forget that the storm while beautiful and awe-inspiring, it was also very dangerous. at least 16 dead across 8 states from this system and more than 80,000 customers are without power from the carolinas all of the way to new york. >> the blizzard creating travel havoc as well. more than 11,000 flights canceled since friday.
this morning of the blizzard 2016. we kick it off with rob in new york city. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula. this was a generational storm, one that you will tell your kids and your grandkids. it's multifaceted. and the breadth of this, across the states, you were impacted. but new york city bearing the brunt. this morning, a deadly winter storm for the record books. the city that never sleeps, looking like a frozen tundra. >> i was at a loss. i mean, i was in complete panic mode. >> reporter: new york city caught right in the bull's-eye of a blizzard of epic proportions. the nation's largest city, burying it underneath 26 inches of snow. falling at a rate of 4 inches per hour. violent winds making for whiteout conditions. vehicles spinning, skidding and sliding. >> travel is now banned. unless it is truly an emergency,
>> reporter: a citywide ban on travel crippling new yorkers for nearly 17 hours. the roads although empty nearly impassable. police cars, even ambulances, no match for this monster storm. >> i thought i should do what i could to get it out. >> reporter: the governor even getting out of his car to help a stranded motorist on the highway. buses are shut down, subways only operating in the areas below ground. >> lay low, certainly don't travel if you don't need to. there's lot of cleanup to do. >> reporter: manhattan enlisting a convoy of nearly 1800 snowplows to help dig this city out. >> just give us time. >> reporter: and they're doing a pretty good job of that. we're at cornerstone of the upper west side. the roadways at least are starting to clear out. we broke a record for the
but for a storm total we're .1 away, dan, from an all-time record. just an incredibly amount of snow falling here in new york. quite honestly, much more than we forecast. let's say that we nailed the forecast down south and d.c. but in this area, new york city, this one overachieved, to say the least. dan. >> the atmosphere can always surprise us, no question about that. the roads are remarkably clear given the amount of snow we received. rob, great job out there. we'll come back to you in just a minute. we do want to move on now to the nation's capital. the blizzard blasting the beltway, roadways and major monuments covered. dangerous snow, so deep in washington, even fire trucks and ambulances needed help. and abc's david kerley joining us right now. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. this is digout day. look at this army of trucks here in washington, d.c., to head out in the next couple of minutes to
roads. historic feet of snow to move and remove. overnight, the plows didn't stop working as the snowfall came to an end. the great digout well under way. the highways, the side streets -- this was one for the record books. >> think of it as a hurricane but with snow and cold weather. >> reporter: an historic storm. in washington, more than 17 inches according to the weather service, making it the fourth largest storm in history. in baltimore, a new all-time record, more than 29 inches. and now, the chore of clearing all that snow. reopening cities. here on capitol hill, you can see that the trucks are already coming. in fact, they're lining up, filled with snow and then the loaders are taking all this snow and moving it over here, they're creating snow hills, which will be snow mountains. because there's so much to remove.
clearing sidewalks. you already shoveled this sidewalk four times? >> around ten times. >> reporter: ten times? >> yeah. >> reporter: will clear them again today. he met with the emergency crews working around the clock, they expect to be removing snow well into the week. the governor telling residents to give those crews a chance. >> this is the critical part, it's going to be a lot of snow and people are going to feel, i have to get outside. but don't go out in your cars. >> reporter: buildings buckled under the weight of the snow. a barn in maryland. last night in downington, pennsylvania, a 64-foot hole as five feet of snow collapses through the roof. along with all the work on highways, airports are scrambling to clear runways and taxiways. flights not expected to return to washington until tomorrow. the washington airports shut
up and down the east coast, a similar story, as they try to bring the planes back and these trucks, of course, have to clear the roads to the airports. already for tomorrow, 600 fights have been canceled. it's going to take a couple of days to get all of these systems running again, paula. >> they have done already a great job. and people on the jersey shore, fearing a repeat of hurricane sandy. suffered a one-two-three punch. the blizzard, snow, powerful winds and surging sea water left entire towns flooded. our team coverage continues with abc'slinzie janis. who's in ocean city for us this morning. hi, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, paula, the misery is not over yet for the jersey shore, here in ocean city, where rushing floodwaters were several feet deep, carrying those icebergs down the street. and you can see the water has receded quite a bit. but high tide is on its way. their going to rise again very quickly. this morning, the jersey shore bracing for another round of
out at sea, the massive nor'easter ripping up waves more than 25 feet high. our new york station, wabc, was there as the storm's high tide rushed in, submerging entire communities in up 8 feet of water. >> lot of wires, lot of obstacles along the highway. >> reporter: the town hardest hit by superstorm sandy in 2012, bearing the brunt once again. chunks of ice floating down this street in ocean city. seawaters causes coastal highways. stranding hundreds of residents who had to wait for emergency crews to evacuate them. it's low tide. look at the water just coming in to this home, and when we show what happened at high side when the water was waist high, it just carried that picnic table into the center of the street.
almost completely submerged and this plow trying to tackle this snow, stuck in the floodwaters. winds gusting up to 72 miles per hour, downing power lines, leaving more than 60,000 homes and businesses across new jersey in the dark. this empty ferris wheel spinning by the wind's power allow. -- alone. this has been the worst storm to hit the jersey shore since superstorm sandy. for most areas it wasn't near as bad. but to the south, in cape may, new jersey, they had record tide levels, over 9 feet, that was worst than sandy. the current coming in, the high tide coming in once again. dan. >> sandy was such a disaster for that area. we're thinking of them this morning. we want to move to the third major american city paralyzed this morning, philadelphia, blanketed under 22 inches of snow. abc's eva pilgrim is live on the road. good morning to you.
clock is ticking for hundreds of drivers who have been stranded along the pennsylvania turnpike. i just want you to think about this for a minute, being stuck here along the interstate, for two nights in the dangerous, freezing cold, emergency responders are hopeful today's improved conditions will help get traffic moving. dangerous roads leaving drivers this morning, stranded. >> this is horrible. we have been stuck in the truck for 13 1/2 hours. >> reporter: 500 vehicles waking up for the second morning still stuck on a western pennsylvania highway. 86 miles of the pennsylvania turnpike closed. this bus, now a makeshift home to duquesne university men's basketball team, stranded since friday, heading home from a game at george mason. >> it's been up to 16 hours maybe in the same spot. we really don't know when -- if we'll be moving again. >> reporter: in the meantime, travelers getting out of their cars gathering together for a
>> reporter: this group of high schoolers trying to get back to kentucky after visiting d.c. for the march for life, knowing the storms were coming they left early hoping to beat the blizzard. >> but then we got stopped last night at around 7:30 and now we're stuck. >> reporter: they have been sitting here for more than 30 hours. the state police, national guard and local firefighters working urgently trying to get these drivers on the move. >> we haven't had any food since yesterday. >> reporter: in philadelphia, snow-covered roads made a busy road for roadside assistance teams. cars crashing into each other, even flipping over mostly deserted roads. crews working around the clock trying to clear the way. >> one after another truck
it's just nonstop. >> reporter: now, any time you head out on the roads during the winter, it's always a great idea to make sure you have some sort of an emergency kit -- a blanket, sleeping bags, plenty of water, snacks really come in handy, something to clean your car off with, a flashlight and just in case -- a shovel, in case you need to dig your car out. this will make having to wait for help so much easier. dan and paula. >> eva, thank you. ron adds he also travels with a st. bernard in his truck. >> yeah. >> which helps how with the snow? >> with a little bit of food. >> okay. thanks, again, eva. we should point out that there's a lighter side to this blizzard. check out this video we spotted. it's going viral right now. >> are you ready? >> ready. >> swimmers, take your mark.
>> oh, wow. >> oh, my god. >> cold. >> surprise. >> runs in the house. were any of you tempted to go outside at all? >> absolutely not. >> look at this. we got these two guys who actually do it, too. i agree with you, ron. they not only dive, but they swim. >> ron, do you want to race me? >> no. >> that's the west virginia university swimming and diving team right there. look at that form, it's perfect. >> they did it twice. >> i know. >> my favorite moment of the show yesterday when we tossed to ron outside. we asked ron, how are you doing? he said, not well at all. all right, let's get it back out to rob marciano, the question right now is, when will all this stuff melt?
>> yeah, the answer to that meteorologist amy freeze, 33 degrees high temperature, wind chill this afternoon which makes it feel like single digits to middle teens. the wind chill is 22 degrees. tonight we go down to 22 for the overnight low. slick roads expected overnight. tomorrow more melting. 35. we have a storm to our south on tuesday. that is rain in the high 45. accuweather seven-day forecast calling for temperatures in the upper 30s >> city's beautiful. right after a snowstorm. it's the day or two after that,
take it easy if you're shoveling. we'll get through this together. dan and paula, back over to you. >> it looks like our city's finest could use some getting their vehicles out behind you, rob. if you want to do that. are you up for that? >> yeah, okay. that guy's going for a jog in this stuff. talk about overachieving. amazing. >> all right, rob, we'll check in with you in a little bit. something not nearly as predictable as the weather, politics. just when the thought the presidential race couldn't get any more bizarre -- surprise. another billionaire michael bloomberg is taking steps toward throwing his name in the ring all of this while donald trump finds a controversial way to boast about the loyalty of his supporters. abc's cecilia vega with the many political angles this morning. hi, cecilia. >> reporter: paula, what is
it's warmer here in iowa than where you were guys are. you mentioned michael bloomberg, people close to him are telling us he has until march to decide to jump into this race. donald trump, he starts his morning by going to church. just how loyal are donald trump's supporters? >> i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? it's like incredible. >> reporter: this morning, the gop front-runner under fire for yet another controversial comment. >> i no intention of shooting anybody in this campaign. >> if you shot somebody you probably would be convicted of first-degree felony and sent to prison. >> reporter: he may not be the billionaire in the race for very long. abc news confirmed that former new york city mayor michael bloomberg is contemplating mounting a third-party run. >> he would be, i think, take a lot of votes away from hillary.
raking in a coveted endorsement from the des moines register and in a blow to the gop front-runners, the influential paper endorsed marco rubio. ted cruz collecting a big endorsement of his own, conservative media personality glenn beck. >> his word is his bond. >> reporter: this morning, it's a younger cruz's personality on full display in this new clip posted on youtube. the lanky teenager talking about exactly what he wants. >> take over the world, world rich, powerful -- that sort of stuff. >> reporter: just a little world domination. here it is, this is that coveted "des moines register" front page -- rubio and clinton. this wasn't necessary a ringing endorsement of clinton from the paper. she said yesterday she was happy to have it. >> she'll take it. all right, cecilia vega, we

in, dan. >> given that no independent has ever won, he several liberal positions on like gun control, what are his chances of winning if he jumps in? >> it's an uphill battle. given bloomberg's wall street ties, it's hard to see who he steals more votes from. but bloomberg would run as a bipartisan problem solver, according to aides. while there's no historical precedent, what does history know about 2016? everything about this race has been atypical, to say the least, dan. >> yeah, and he's got resources. he said he's willing to spend $1 billion reportedly. he does have that going for him. all right, martha, you passed. you did a really good job of that. a huge congratulations again. martha has a big show this morning. with just a week until the iowa
