became ill and last week she went to a phoenix area clinic and may have exposed 195 children to this highly contagious virus. >> anyone who was in the phoenix children's east valley clinic was actually potentially exposed while the woman was in that clinic area. >> reporter: the cdc reports 84 cases of measles nationwide. across 14 states in just the past month. the real concern is how contagious measles is. it can be contracted by inhaling it hours after an infected person has left the area which makes scenarios like this one a potential breeding ground. robin. >> cecilia, thank you. that's why we'll talk to abc's dr. richard besser about that. going to the stadium, how big of a risk is that? >> the risk is very very small. there are 84 cases, they're spread out around the country. in arizona those seven cases are mainly in one family so your risk is very very small in that stadium and if you're vaccinated your risk is really nonexistent.
>> talk about that a little bit. those vaccinated against those who are not. >> if you've been vaccinated against measles and exposed to it your chance of getting it is 1%. if you haven't been 90%. the vaccine really really works. >> so drastic the difference. >> incredible. >> we've heard the health officials say if you have the symptoms stay at home but what are the symptoms? >> people think about the rash but the early symptoms of measles, fever, cough, runny nose pink eye. that's what they'll look at. you can have that for four days before the rash. if you have those stay home and watch the game on tv. >> i know you're tipping to get a lot of questions on twitter about it. back on it again today. >> for sure. >> that new round of snow falling with many still digging out from the monster storm earlier in the week and bitter cold moving in just in time for the weekend and ginger tracking it all and the plains had such a rough time. >> they did. even if it is just ice and a little know this can happen. planes going off the runways in west michigan and look at this. near pittsburgh about an inch to 3 inches around there but,

towed to the gate. they're all trained to land fully but this was without incident and delta says maintenance crews are taking a look at that cockpit door. now, the passenger that we talked to says that the captain came back and calmed everybody as they were getting ready to make that landing and says as he was leaving the maintenance crew found a piece of string that kept that door from opening, robin. >> a piece of string? that's what -- >> reporter: that's what they're saying. not from delta, just from the passengers. >> thank you very much david. >> never fun when the pilot is walking serving the drinks. >> no not a good sign. i know he's meant to calm them. now to weekend "gma" anchor dan harris with the other top stories. we start with breaking news out of l.a. a music industry mogul under arrest after a deadly hit-and-run. suge knight who's had run-ins with the law in the past held on $2 million braille accused of running down his own friend and

says well if they lost it's because they couldn't do anything with the balls. if they win the game they're not going to give me credit because that's how they got there. >> marshawn lynch. >> reporter: meanwhile it's not a running seahawk but a running nose providing another distraction for brady. he's battling a cold seen wiping his nose with his sleeve wednesday but thursday assuring fans he'll be 100% come sunday. >> glad it happened early in the week and i'm feeling a lot better. >> reporter: not getting better. marshawn lynch's relationship with the media. >> i'm here so i won't get fined. >> reporter: after holding his tongue all week he forced un unwillingly to go in front of the cameras against thursday but still refusing to answer any questions. >> y'all can go and make up whatever qualcomm stadium want to make up because i don't say enough for you to put anything out on me. >> reporter: with sunny skies in the forecast and ticket prices expected to be the highest in super bowl history, more than $8,000 just to get in sports fans hope both teams can sideline the scandal and leave the drama for the field.
and right now, the drama is the weather. you see, that's actually a poster behind me. those blue skies, we haven't been seeing much of those. it is a total washout right now so we are keeping our fingers crossed that sunny skies will prevail eventually but it's not dampening the excitement. all the pregamers out there having a lot of fun, so we'll have more on that coming up later in the broadcast. >> i was going to say she's at the super bowl and we're not so we're still jealous. thanks, amy. better get tom brady tissues. felt bad for him. espn football analyst and former nfl quarterback jesse palmer. you would know better than anyone. when you go out on to that field are you able to block out all the drama of deflate-gate and everything else when they head out there sunday? >> there's a lot going on and a lot to look forward to. intriguing story lines that starts with seattle and their defense, the legion of boom the best in the nfl led by richard
sherman, one of the most outspoken players facing off against tom brady and the new england patriots. a lot of talk this week about the legacy of tom brady. if he wins this game it's his fourth super bowl championship many would consider him the greatest quarterback to ever play in the national football league of course there's another quarterback playing, as well that's russell wilson of seattle. no quarterback has won more games in his first three seasons in the nfl. these are the two best teams in the national football league this year facing off, lots of big name star power. i believe super bowl xlix is going to live up to the hype david. >> wow. you gave us a lot to look forward to jesse. some you know oh too well michael strahan, got that super bowl -- not little. big super bowl ring you're sporting. do you agree that once the games -- the distractions we talk about go to the wayside. >> once they kick off it's still just football after that. no fan can help you. it's just about you and your teammates and what you do on the feel. then on the field actually the best place to be because all those things are gone.
there are no distractions. you enjoy that part. everything leading up to the game, that's what you don't enjoy, we saw it with marshawn lynch. >> do you have a pick in the game jesse? >> putting me on the spot again, robin. you did this to me a couple of weeks ago in dallas but michael strahan, my old teammate will love what i'm about to say. defense wins championships. i'm a former quarterback. >> yeah, they do. >> i cannot believe i just did that. seattle is the best and have been the best last three years. i think russell wilson and mar shaufrn limp will play great but the defense will be the story. i don't even know who i am anymore, guys. >> thank you, jesse. we'll see if you're right this time because last time not so much. thank you for joining us. >> i love that he's not afraid. he's the best. >> he's right. i agree with him. my pick as well. >> of course. hey, we'll switch gears and talk about that hot air balloon forced to make an emergency landing. maybe, ginger you can talk

welcome back and we continue now with hopefully teleprompter in the right place. there we go. 7:41 and "gma investigates" school buses and why the vast majority of them do not have seat belts. some saying that could prevent injuries and save kids' lives and now the government's auto safety agency tells abc he's taking a fresh look at the issue. abc's paula faris here now with that story and good morning to you, paula. >> good morning, lara. this morning the vast majority of school buses on the road taking our children to school are not equipped with safety belts. it can be a really confusing message to kids buckle up it's the law except on the school bus. but that could be changing. this is the inside of a school bus rolling over. luckily it's a crash test with dummies, not the real thing. >> oh my gosh. it's a school bus. >> reporter: michael watkins was 9 when his school bus crashed
