7:07 am
i thought afcty joke, what's going on? because i didn't see the shots. i just heard them and having never been under attack in my life, i couldn't -- i didn't think it was actually real gunshots and then all of a sudden people started screaming and that's when we realized with my two friends we had to get out and we started ducking, hiding behind the seats getting down and luckily, near to where we were, there was a safety exit and we managed to get into the staircase of that safety exit, we were there for about 30 seconds to a minute before opening the doors because i think they were outside in the streets when we got out and then the doors opened and somebody said it's safe. >> before you got out what could you see of what was happening? >> yeah, that's the thing. because they started downstairs, obviously because, you know, they came in i think they came in with -- they ran a car into the entrance, i'm not sure, i think i heard that. they started shooting downstairs so i didn't see -- i didn't see
7:08 am
the people shooting. i didn't see the, you know, the kind of fire that the kalashnikovs give off. all i heard was a shooting but it was like continuous shooting it was like bang, bang, bang. >> how long did it go on. >> it went on for awhile. they were just shooting. they just didn't stop. obviously, you know, they just wanted to kill as many people as possible. >> it must have been so horrifying. >> yeah, it's horrible. i was very chilled last night. i had loads of alcohol. i'm a bit less chilled today. i woke up this morning feeling, yeah, you know, i felt -- yeah, i feel quite horrible. i don't know. i'm trying to keep it all together because i think i won't so i'm trying to maintain a cool attitude but i feel very dishe frommed because i knew people there, some of the people i knew apparently somebody got shot, not people i know personally but people of people who know -- i
7:09 am
mean, just various acquaintances. it's just sad that this would happen in a place where people come together to listen to good music, you know, it's just -- it's depressing. >> what's it like in paris this morning? >> i don't know. i haven't been out yet. i'm going to go out later because i want to join my family in burgundy so should be getting a train but i haven't been out yet so i don't know what the atmosphere is like in paris. i don't think it's very rosy and happy. i think people are staying indoors. >> i imagine so. ginny watson, thanks so much for your time. >> thank you. >> hard to absorb this kind of horror. >> it is and reality is setting in andnfortunately so manyf these folks were just sitting ducks in that theater. a terrifying night for the city of paris and this morning, they are waking up in shock and people are watchg all over the world. we spoke with several other survivors besides ginny who witnessed that carnage. >> we were walking and we heard
7:10 am
a handful of gunshots. >> we heard a bunch of gunshot, maybe eight to ten then there was kind of a pause and there were a few more. >> and police crouched behind like the doorways and trees. >> i don't think anybody really understood what was going on. >> you could hear the gunshots. again and again. and we waited for the terrorist to reload again. >> we turn aroun and ran for our life. >> there was lines of ambulances and ambulances running by. >> somebody saw a body lying in the street. >> i saw a couple of people wounded. i saw this one girl with a wound in her thigh. >> everybody at that point lying on the floor to escape the bullets. >> and we just stood there in silence. >> i pray for the victims. and for the families. most of them died meters away from me.
7:11 am
some of them on me. so i pray for them. >> prayers all over the word. i want to bring in martha raddatz right now. such strong rhetoric from the french president hollande this morning saying this is an act of war. france declaring war. what can we expect from themmy. >> well, this is a reminder that george bush declared the war on terror about nine days after 9/11 and french president hollande has said this was an act of war and when faced with war, the country must take appropriate decisions. now, will they be more involved militarily? right now, george, france has been conducting air strikes in syria but not very many. and is this really a military problem at this point? you saw these eight attackers go throughout paris armed with suicide vests, armed with weapons, how you approach that militarily remains to be seen and whether that will help or were these a group of lone
7:12 am
wolves, a pack of wolves, were they inspired from outside or as the french president said, were outsiders involved? does this trace back to syria, back to iraq, the heart of isis? >> big question right there if they were not just inspired by isis but actually directed, that would suggest that isis is getting the kind of capability we used to associate with al qaeda. >> exactly, george, and this is such a huge escalation of what we thought isis was capable of. if it's proven that they brought down that russian airliner and if they are behind this complicit in this in a. bigger way than these eight individuals and certainly someone planned this sort of operation, that is just a major escalation. what we're seeing and how you approach isis. is it from a law enforcement perspective? it is very, very difficult to track as many isis sympathizers as they have in europe and obviously people came in under the radar here, didn't know they
7:13 am
had weapons, didn't know they were building explosive vests to go into these areas. they were not clearly being tracked. >> okay, martha raddatz, thanks very much. paula. >> thanks, martha. we want to speak with abc news consultant dick clark. thanks for joining us. as martha was saying, in the last three weeks isis has claimed responsibility for three attackers, russia, beirut and now paris. is this something new isis is doing? >> it is. u.s. intelligence has known for several months now that isis has an external action arm whose purpose is to attack outside of syria and iraq specifically to attack in western europe and here in the united states. they've been waiting for the wave of attacks from this organization. they didn't know what they were capable of. now we've seen these major attacks within a week in egypt, in beirut and now in france. the question u.s. intelligence and law enforcement is asking itself now, is can they do it
7:14 am
here? right now they don't think there's an isis capability here in the united states but the french didn't see this attack coming either. >> and i know they've made such a concerted effort in terms of anti-terror. i got to ask you, i know this is very preliminary but authorities are starting to put the pieces together on who these terrorists were. what does it say that the witnesses claim that the shooters were speaking french? >> they undoubtedly were french. they're undoubtedly french-arabs among the hundreds of thousands of disaffected youth in the arab population around paris, probably some of them at least had gotten out of france and gone to syria or iraq for training. and come back, they were all very young people by the description of the people who saw them. this is the same kind of people who were involved in the "charlie hebdo" attack earlier this year and there is a very large pool of disaffected, unemployed, radicalized islamic
7:15 am
youth in france. thankfully that's not true here in the united states. >> this latest tragedy, dick, thanks for joining us this morning. let's go to jon karl now at the white house and, jon, we saw president obama just about an hour after word of this attack. >> somber president offering a firm statement of solidarity with the french people and a vow that the united states will do whatever is possible to help the french respond to these attacks. >> this is an attack not just on terrorists, it's an attack not just on the people of france, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share. those who think that they can terrorize the people of france or the values that they stand for are wrong. >> and, jon, the president spoke with francois hollande, the french president, later that evening. he is now on his way for a big g-20 trip, the french president was supposed to go on, not going on. the president going through with
7:16 am
his travels. >> reporter: he leaves late they are afternoon and one of the first orders of business on that trip is a meeting in turkey with other european leaders to talk about dealing with the threat of isis. now, the white house, george, is not ready to follow the french yet in saying that isis was responsible for this attack. but what you are hearing from officials down the line from the president on down is that the united states will help respond, the clear implication is not just with the investigation and the aftermath of the killings here but also in striking back at whoever was responsible for this. the national security adviser said overnight, "we are only further strengthened in our resolve to defeat this threat." >> of course, the united states already doing air strikes in syria and iraq and the president recently putting 50 special operation forces on the ground in syria. jonathan karl, thanks so much. security is being ramped up especially at sports arenas and stadiums. lots of college football games across the country today. nfl stadiums will be filled tomorrow and dan is in tooimdz with that part of the story for
7:17 am
us. good morning, dan. >> hey, paula, good morning to you. major city as cross the country are boosting security in the wake of the horror over in paris including this city america's largest metropolis, a place that knows terrorism all too well, new york city. here in new york, the nypd deploying extra personnel and its counterterrorism unit. critical response teams ready in the city's most visible targets. >> not only will you see an increased uniform presence with police officers with heavy weapons, there's also we work with our federal partner, the fbi and the joint terrorism task force. >> reporter: with one of the targets in paris being a packed staid judge, sporting venueues across america will be enhancing security today. in los angeles, the famous rose bowl increasing its staffing and asking fans to leave their bags at home. the nba and nhl putting its teams on high alert. but the nfl saying it actually won't be changing protocols as
7:18 am
supplements's games approach. the league spokesman saying, security at our games is always at a heightened state of alert. adding all nfl stadiums are already equipped with metal detectors. >> you can't view it as a nuisance. this is the world we live in now and if you have to take precautions and if you have to go through screening that's just part of the process. >> reporter: with the attackers in paris hitting so many so-called soft targets like a restaurant and concert hall, the nypd and fbi will be working to keep popular areas around this city safe. you can expect heightened security at tourist attractions and on public transit. >> the tragic events in paris we established a counterterrorism overlay. what that is is a heavy weapons service for officers. they go to high-profile and sensitive locations throughout the city. >> reporter: it is important to point out that the department of homeland security is urging americans not to panic, issuing a statement saying, quote, we know of no specific or credible threats of an attack on the u.s.
7:19 am
homeland of the type that occ occurred over in paris. paula, over to you. >> thank you. authorities in the u.s. are closely monitoring the situation in paris. abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas is in washington. law enforcement in the u.s., they've been very active in tracking potential isis sympathizers but how do our efforts at home differentiate between those here and those maybe abroad in europe and france? >> reporter: well, the fbi has dozens of investigations under way in all 50 states, many surround suspected isis sympathizers and found a significant pool of people isis has reached in social media in the last year alone more than 70 americans have been arrested for somehow trying to support isis. some accused of trying to join isis. others arrested for plotting attacks here at home. mainly, young men, but some women, even teenagers arrested, paulg la. >> pierre, 90,000 messages every day they're blasting on social media but since "charlie hebdo," the french have been really aggressive in trying to prevent
7:20 am
terror attacks and now this happens. >> reporter: indeed, they have. they have looked at over a thousand people in that country that they've been trying to keep track of. i spoke to a senior official at the french national police who talked about in somberer its, the pressure of having to follow these people day in and day out, paula. >> all right, pierre, thank you. >> george, much more from paris coming up. a quick check of the weather with rob marciano. >> george, big storm in the northwest right now. this is the flooding. outside of seattle. a big plume of moisture, atmosphere heading into the pacific northwest. more rain expected. the 3 to 5 inches and snow levels drop, as well. significant snows at the higher elevations as well and there's been some winds sporadic power outages across parts of seattle that will drop down into california too. blustery across the northeast, josh: good mororning, washingto. as you work our way throughout the daytim temperatures much cooler.

7:31 am
that statement this morning and they did so in the name of allah. >> all of france under a state of emergency right now. all of paris in a state of shock and we've seen these terrifying pictures and aaron katersky is on the scene. good morning, aaron. >> reporter: george, good morning from the bataclan theatre. this was the scene of the worst of it, as many as 80 people were killed inside this theater and police still have it blocked off. parisians have been gripped by fear but they're starting to come out of their homes now and as they come here to witness this scene of carnage, we see them with their hands over their mouths, some with flowers, some even with song, trying to show solidarity. they're in the middle of three days of mourning now for the 127 people killed in acts of violence that unfolded nearly simultaneously across the city, here at the concert hall, at the stade de france where france and germany were playing soccer, the president of france was in attendance and quickly whisked
7:32 am
away. there were also attacked, gunfire and explosions at restaurants and bars, so these atrocities targeted not tourists or staid officials but ordinary young parisians mixing it up on a friday night out. an act of war by a terrorist army, what the president of france has called this and now isis has officially claimed responsibility, we're told by a parisian police official that a syrian passport was found near the body of at least one of the attackers. there were eight in all, seven of them were killed at their own hand by their suicide vests, another one was shot dead in the street. george. >> aaron, thanks very much. our chief investigative correspondent brian ross here right now. what we've heard from the french president this was prepared and coordinated from abroad and that piece of evidence the syrian passport. >> an important clue and know joe night french and u.s. authorities are running names through their databases with the eight dead suspects they have dna, fingerprints and faces to
7:33 am
match to photo arrays and are getting to the heart of who was involved and how it was planned. >> this has been the big fear. people going to syria and getting trained by isis, coming back to the west. >> exactly and, of course, also the hunt is on now for the accomplice, who helped get the weapons? who helped provide safe places for them to plan the attack. >> it would take so much coordination. >> the statement of responsibility today they chose the soccer game because it was our two enemy, france and germany and chose the concert because they called it a party of perversity which they can't stand. >> okay, brian ross, thanks very much. 1500 soldiers have been mobilized to guard paris' parliament, building, religious sites and tourist attractions and moments ago i spoke from paris with the deputy mayor patrick klugman. we are joined now by the deputy mayor of paris, patrick klugman, mayor klugman, our hearts are with you this morning. what can you tell us about the scene in paris right now? >> thank you. well, the situation is really

very weird, i would say, strange, very unusual. we are facing unprecedented events in paris. we have the state of emergency declared which is the first time since the war in the early '60s, all schools are closed. all games, flea markets, concerts, all are closed. so it's like a mourning morning i would say. the city is a bit stopped and we are under shock. >> the police have said that eight attackers have been killed. are you confident all the attackers are killed, and what do we know about possible accomplices? >> we are not totally focused at the moment on the inquiry on the accomplices, on the person responsible -- as you know, of
7:35 am
course, isis claimed the terror attacks but we don't know more about who are the actors, who are the criminals, because we are really counting and naming the dead perpendiculars and the wounded persons in paris. i would like to add also that this morning we had emergency meeting in paris with all the persons responsible, the deputy mayor, the [ mayors, et cetera, and mike bloomberg, former mayor of new york was here with us this morning and it was a huge sign of support for us to see physically that america is standing with us and, of course, we know it and we heard president obama yesterday, but it's great sign of solidarity and so important at the present moment. >> mr. mayor, thank you for joining us this morning. as he said the entire city in shock right now. >> you can only imagine what
