7:10 am
are still going to be talking about that threat for major flooding in that region and the other thing i have to point out, it is very cold this morning. typically when you see a flooding concern in this part of the country it's usually in the springtime when it's warm outside but today you can tell temperatures are below freezing so i'm standing in a mix of water and ice so the roads are very slippery out here on the sides of the roads, ice crystals so impossible to walk so another layer to the depth of what's going on. drivers having a very difficult time into the midwest. >> as if the situation couldn't get any worse, indra, thank you. >> this is going to be going on for weeks, indra, thank you. the other morning headlines and as always we turn it over to mr. ron claiborne. good morning, sir. >> happy new year. >> happy new year. >> dan, paula, sara haines, good morning to you. we begin with people around the country and around the world really checking their new year's uber receipts, some of them getting sticker shock. riders took to social media to post their frustration and evidence about uber taking advantage of the holiday to jack
