tv   CBS This Morning Saturday  CBS  February 9, 2013 8:00am-10:00am EST

8:00 am
. good morning. i'm rebecca jarvis. and i'm anthony mason. here are a few stories we'll be looking at on "cbs this morning" saturday. a storm of historic proportions. a blast from the north hits the storm from the south and the result is the great blizzard of 2013. at least four people are dead and at least 650,000 homes and businesses are without power, most in new england. we'll have the very latest on this dangerous storm and the misery it's causing from maine to new jersey. plus a desperate manhunt for an alleged cop killer in
8:01 am
southern california. a former cop with an angry manifesto and a high-caliber grudge. and a special performance for us by a young superstar who could be a big winner at tomorrow night's grammy awards. ed sheeran. that and much more on "cbs this morning saturday," february 9th, 2013. captioning funded by cbs good morning and welcome to the weekend. we begin with a big white blast. >> got snow everybody is asking this morning and that is our top story for the day and throughout this half hour. it's becoming what's likely to be known for years to come as the great blizzard of 2013. the storm is here and as predicted, it is enormous.
8:02 am
here's the latest. governors declared states of emergency in five states. the storm is blamed for at least four deaths. at least 650,000 customers have no power. a nuclear power plant in plymouth plymouth, massachusetts, lost power and shut down and authorities say there is no threat to safety. transportation is mostly suspended. we begin our coverage with the latest from our own cs weather consultant david ber nafrmd good morning, david. what can you tell us. >> good morning, rebecca. we take a look at the wide view. there is certainly plenty of snow still falling across the northeast. but if we start to the west and go to northern new jersey and the new york city area notice the snow is gradually ending from the west to the east. central and eastern connecticut, you still have plenty of snow. it's not the case in eastern connecticut, rhode island, and the boston area and all of coastal maine, they're seeing occasional bouts of heavy snow.
8:03 am
some of these bands are still pretty strong and that's going to continue to be the case for much of the morning. in fact, where you see the blue that's an additional 3 to 6 inches of snow could fall before the end of the day and that certainly does seem like that could be reasonable. >> how about the danger of flooding, especially in areas hit hardest by superstorm sandy, david? >> that's a good question. i know as far south as atlantic city during high tide we saw moderate coastal flooding and wash in that area. the winds now not only for the jersey shore and long island connecticut, now have it going offshore. the coastal flood warnings are confined along the massachusetts and maine shoreline. and, again, that should gradually abate as we go throughout the day. still there's threat of high water. >> david bernard, thank you so much. we'll be checking back with you later. this blizzard is huge big enough for place in winter storm history. as we reported major power
8:04 am
outages are being reported the morning and the city in the bull's eye is boston. our own terrell brown is there this morning. terrell, how's it looking? >> reporter: anthony, good morning to you. snow is still coming down and power outages are the main concern across the statement we really saw the numbers take a big jump overnight. more than 4,000 customers in this state are in the dark and here's the reason why. we went out and grabbed pictures of the storm overnight and into this morning. you can really see the wind picking up and the snow coming down. we're talking about hurricane force wind gusts out near the coast. the snow coming down here still in boston. we're at about a foot right now. and at areas or in areas a foot to the west we're talking 26 inches. and as david mentioned not too long ago, we're about at halftime. more snow to come here. the city of boston for the most part shut down this morning. there is that mandatory travel ban, so you won't see any cars
8:05 am
on the road. but you'll see first respoernlds and people who have to be working like us. airlines have canceled all of their flights out of logan airport. you won't cash a flight in or out of that airport until tomorrow the early earliest. just a side note we couldn't get out of our hotel. we had to run in the blizzard just to get here and i want to show you this hill, by the way. this is what we ended up coming up. this was the final leg. it's tough to be out here. the wind is stinging you in the face as it's blowing at you in the face. >> terrell brown, thank you. >> we appreciate what terrell is doing out there. new york is in the path of this storm and for residents still recovering from superstorm sandy barely three months ago,
8:06 am
this special hit from mother nature is especially kruchlt manuel bojorquez is live with more. good morning, manuel. >> reporter: good morning, rebecca. central park received 8 inches of snow overnight. hundreds of snow plows and plowers have been spread throughout the city. so far the biggest problems appear to be east of here on long ieslandisland. police say hundreds have been stranded since yesterday. throughout the storm, victims of superstorm sandy have been keeping a close eye on the storm. in addition to the storm, residents are fearing that it could bring coastal flooding to the areas devastated by sandy. the governor warned all roads are closed until further notice. there are reports of up to 34
8:07 am
inches of snow in the southern part of the state. the governor is pleading with res denltds to stay off the street unless they face an emergency. now, as the snow tapers this morning, gusty winds up 240 miles an hour remain a concern that they could be a problem throughout the day. of course, the threat there is those winds could topple trees that are being weighed down by all the snow that fell. anthony, rebecca? >> manuel bojorquez. thanks manuel. they canceled thousands of flights and amtrak rail shut down service for much of the region. let's talk about how much has been closed down. we heard terrell brown say all flights at logan canceled. how far is this cancellation problem reaching and for how long is it going go on for?
8:08 am
>> this is a very big deal. there's been some 5,200 flights canceled since thursday, because of the storm. we've seen great impact not only in the east but especially new england, newark kennedy, laguardia. we've seen staggering cancellations. even beyond that if you look on the west coast texas, florida, san francisco, not only dozens but hundreds at some of these airports. that's largely the effect of what we're seeing. they can't come here. >> how dlong we think they'll be stuck on the ground? >> well there's good news and bad news. i think today looks promises for new york less so for new england. we're going to see some movement, but this is something we're going to be talking about at least through monday in some degree or another. >> what about train service? what about amtrak? >> they pretty much shut down
8:09 am
all of their service in new york as of yesterday. there's talks that they may resume today. put me under the "i'll believe it when i see it" category. >> as we just heard from manuel bojorquez, the roads shut entirely in connecticut. what's the status of the roads? >> there's a lots of law enforcement officers saying stay off the road. people should default to their ceremony sense. in connecticut they're saying stay off the roads. in massachusetts, you can end up in jail for a year. i don't think they're enforcing that, but let the emergency crews do their work. >> stay out of the way for a little while. >> exactly. >> thanks, ben. it's been a week now, and a manhunt for former los angeles police officer christopher dorner goes on. it's focused around big bare lake in the southern california mountains but has spread into
8:10 am
nevada arizona, and even northern mexico. dorner is the suspect in at least three killings including one police officer and he's threatened dozens of people. let's get the latest on the search for him with carter evans. good morning to you, carter. >> reporter: good morning, rebecca. southern california remains on high alert this morning. search teams in the mountains of east los angeles will resume their house-to-house checks at sunrise this morning. it's in the resort community of big bare where authorities found christopher dorner's burned out truck. since then there have been no substantial developments but there have been false sightings and lots of them. the twin towers jail here was locked down friday after a woman thought she saw someone who
8:11 am
looked like dorner try to enter the building. there's a connection. his ex-wife works there. on friday afternoon investigators removed bags of evidence from dorner's mother's home in orange county california. that is his last known address. investigators have been on dorner's trail since earlier this week when a man fess the other surfaced on his facebook page. in it he accused essentially members of the lapd lying at a hearing that ultimately led to his firing. dorner has essentially declared war on the hlapd. he seems bent on clearing his name. in the manifesto, he said when the truth comes out, the killing stops. rebecca and anthony? >> carter evans in los angeles. thank you, carter. for more we turn to john miller. great to have you with us john. good morning. >> great to be here. >> we haven't heard from dorner over the last couple of days. sh is this all part of a
8:12 am
cat-and-mouse game and when do we think he might surface. >> >> that's the big question. his truck was found at the bottom of big bare mountain. the reason it was there is because he broke the axle. he had set fire it to. they recovered ammunitions but no weapons which means he probably only left the ammunition that he couldn't carry and he certainly took those weapons. did he go into a house to hide out and that's why they're doing that search? did he go into a house for the purposes of stealing a car out of a driveway and is he off to another location? that's what we don't know. >> irvine police have released two perfects before dorner was believed to have gone on a shooting spree. what do they tell us? >> this with us before his first murder, first double shooting.
8:13 am
one thing it tells us is he's very aware of his surroundings. he looks right into the camera. he sees it. they're seeing it. he's thinking how am i documenting my movements and is this going to hamper my plan. >> you compared the to the d.c. sniper but hyped on steroids. >> that's right. the mood was one of fear. you had a snierp shooting one person one time. here's a guy who is -- who has done a number of shootings, promises to do more and doesn't come out and fire just one shot. even when the police began to approach his car several days ago, he laid down recovering fire with an assault weapon. you have public in fear. i think of people who live in the hoists on that remote
8:14 am
mountain but you have police with a hire anxiety level. already we've seen two shootings involving mistaken identities of people who turned out not to be dorner. >> he talking about their target-rich environment. what was he suggesting here do you think? >> in the los angeles police department when there's any type of an incident they set up a post and they bring everybody there. so you have a collection of cops all drawn to one area of any scene so when you look at the incidents he's generating that he can circle back wait a while, and attack the command post or there will be the grammys on sunday where you're going have a major police command post or police presence to a guy who's saying i'm looking for the target-rich environmental. and you know he thought all this through. >> is there a concern? >> i've spoken to the people
8:15 am
there, and their problems are very interesting. one problem is can they get enough cops to police the grammys and everybody's been deployed on this. people are being called in on days off, overtime and so on. but they believe that he has shifted from being the hunter to the hunted now as he's had to abandon that vehicle and move quick. >> john miller. thanks so much. the debate over obama administration's use of unmanned drone craft striking americans was front and center this week on capitol hill. senators grilled cia director nominee john brennan about the program. but what's the view on the ground? cristhristopher smith a an adjunct professor and recently from a fact-fining mission in yemen. good morning, christopher. >> good morning. thanks for having me.
8:16 am
>> what's the attitude about these strikes? is there a revulsion about them? a political problem? how do they feel? >> there's a major political problem, and the political problem is generalized political anger and resentment. it's not the droens in particular. it's the fact that the united states and saudi arabia have intervened in yemen. and the if you look at the the arab spring, they see that as foreign countries interfering with their ability to make their own decisions about their country's future. >> to what tee degreedegree is it becoming a recruitment tool for al qaeda? >> we presume that the drone strikes bring resent meant and that brings more into al qaeda. i interviewed a number of tribal and local religious leaders
8:17 am
including some militia commanders who are fighting them door to door with or without the yemenis' help. they say what's bringing them in is not drones politics or religion. 's economics. yemen is an extreme le poor country. most live on less than $60 a month. when al qaeda comes in they can offer 200, $400 a movement that's 'a game changer for them. >> do people oppose the drone attacks entirely? >> no. it really depends on where you are. the more the nuance their opinion about drones become. i've had some tribal leaders and commission people say privately they're happy they were there, but pub hick lyly the anger and
8:18 am
resent meant is so strong people want to have it both ways. they want the military problem go away but they want to reserve their independent going forward. >> that's a delicate political problem. christopher swift, thank you very much. >> my pleasure. it appears that even ex-presidents can get hacked. in fact, two of them. a criminal investigation is ushlgd way in the case of a mystery hacker who manneraged to list private e-mails and photos soent to both members of the family including both commanders in chief. cbs correspondent chip reid has more on that. >> reporter: according to website, the smoking gun george w. bush e-mailed his siblings he was thinking about eulogy.
8:19 am
he added, hopefully i'm jumping the gun. a bush aide reportedly told the children not to tell barbara bush about the perilous state of their fare's health f after two months in the hospital the elder bush was released in january. a close source told us the e-mails were obtained by hacking the account. it included family photos, phone numbers and self portrays by george w. bush. speaker if the family he wrote the statement this is an outrageous breach of privacy and we'll not be responding earlier. headquarterses show how easy it is such as the name of the account owner's hometown or favorite pet. in 2008 a hacker gained access to vice-presidential candidate

8:22 am
came on the p.l. and said that he just heard that whitney houston had died and we were all kind of shocked and stunned. we didn't know if it was true or not, but i can tell you right then and there, my heart started racing. i started hyperventilatoring. >> nobody else knew. the word has not gotten out to the media. the first word to us is we've got to go tell ken now. there's this stunned shocked look of disbelief. >> ken picked up the p.l. and said lou, keep doing what you're doing. >> you could feel the tension in the house. it was a show that was huge. it had to happen and it had to happen right then. >> i knew it was going to be a long day and a long night, and we were in for the long haul here. we really needed to figure out what we were going to do next.

wow, that's pretty cool. that's courtesy of nasa and that's what today's storm in the northeast looks like from the outer space. >> it shows what happens when a warm wet system moves into a wet one. a lot prettier up there than down here. >> a little slushier down here. welcome to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm rebecca jarvis. >> and i'm anthony mason. >> we want to get you to the top story this half hour. the blizzard burying the northeast. and our weather consultant david bernard has the latest. what's the latest? >> we have plenty of snow.
8:31 am
it's not over yet, but we're seeing light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. let's take a look at the storm track. notice it's still calling for snow as we have it right now occurring mostly over northern new england but watch as we go throughout the day. the low is going to start pushing quickly out to the northeast. so even in places like rhode island and eastern massachusetts and coastal maine, things should begin to wind down late this afternoon, and it looks certainly by this evening. notice how the snows have basically ended in the new york city area. to the east we still have some of those heavier snow bands affecting a large number of people. >> all right, david bernard, thanks so much for covering this for us. the storm left more than 650,000 customers without electricity. many are in massachusetts. joining us by phone is marcy reid. she's the president of national grid in massachusetts, utility that serves much of the state and she's at the emergency management center in north
8:32 am
borough. good morning, marcy. >> good morning. >> to start with what can you tell us about the outage and is it going to get worse before it gets better? >> we do have 350,000 customers out here in our service territory in eastern massachusetts and down through rhode island. it's a very serious storm as you've been reporting, and it is still coming down. so we're just now getting to the point where we can start with some minimal restoration efforts. but by and large, we're going to still vt to hold off for a little bit. >> there's 650,000 people throughout the northeast corner not necessarily under your purview, but 650,000 without power. for those who are without power in the massachusetts area how long before they can expect things getting back to normal? >> well, you know rebecca, we told them coming into the storm that we expected this to be a multi-day event, and indeed unfortunately that's coming to pass. so if we start restoring at some
8:33 am
point later this afternoon, you know, i'm hopeful that we can get them on you know slowly but surely over the next day or two. >> marcy do you think most of the damage has already been done or do you tlink could still be more power outages here? >> it's tough to say, anthony, but a lot of damage has been done to our system and other utilities around. the winds are still blowing rather heavily. at this point there are no cars on the road so motor vehicle accidents into our polls are not a problem. but as vehicles get out and accidents occur, the damage will continue to build. so i don't think it's over yesterday. >> all right. marcy reed president of national grit in massachusetts. thanks for coming on. >> thanks for having me. people are worried about the fierce windings posing a major threat to the power grid. manuel bojorquez is in central park. once again, good morning, manuel. >> reporter: good morning,
8:34 am
rebecca. most of the residents have above power lines and most are susceptible to trees weighed down by snow and the wind that could topple those trees. here in new york city however, the power lines are buried beneath the ground so despite the snowfall the lights remain on. the biggest concern, however, for new york city, is keeping the streets clear. officials said crews would work 12-hour shifts. hundreds of spreaders have been deployed. the hope is to have all streets deployed by mid morning. as people are waking up here in manhattan, they are diskrovcovering the blizzard is not as bad. it's a lot easier for people to stay home and, of course to stay off the roads to give crew as chance to clean up. student at columbia university, they were trying to ski and
8:35 am
snowboard in this snow. i don't know that officials would consider that a very safe thing do but, of course, college students will always find way to have fun in all of this. here in central park we have seen people waking up walking their jogs,dogs jogging, enjoying the scenery. >> no exams tomorrow at columbus university. manuel bojorquez, thank you so much. it's about 35 minutes after the hour. time now for a look at the weather for your weekend. up next, three years after amy bishop admitted to killing

8:40 am
the judge has given her until monday to file the appeal, but the alabama case is just part of this strange story. >> reporter: the campus rampage in 2010 shocked the university of alabama-huntsville. disgruntled professor amy bushishop shot six colleagues at the end of a department meeting, killing three and wounding three others. >> it didn't happen. there's no way. >> reporter: the day after bishop was taken into custody, the huntsville sheriff's department receive add phone call from a police chief more than 1,000 miles way in braintree, massachusetts. in this week's "the new yorker" magazine chief paul frazer told them. the woman you have in custody, i thought you'd want to know she shot and killed her brother back in 1986. amy was 21 years old when she
8:41 am
shot her 18-year-old broekt in the chest with her father's shotgun. the only witness to the shootsing, her mother judy. they quickly released amy and closed case. >> today the grand jury has indicted amy bishop for murder in the first degree of her brother. >> reporter: two months after the shooting in alabama, the investigation in seth bishop's death was reopened. >> flank ifrankly if i were the families in alabama i would be furious, i thinking white might have been averted. costa rica they dropped the case against amy who continues to serve a life sentence the alabama. >> he's the first reporter to ever interview amy bishop. he offers a new theory on what may have caused her to shoot her own brother in this week's story of "the new yorker." patrick, good morning. first of all, how did you get amy to talk to you? >> i wrote with her a number of
8:42 am
times in prison and atoque to a whole bunch of people she knew and i was beginning to hear from friends and family that she was aware i was writing the article and one day i was sitting at home and out of the blue i got a collect call from alabama and it was amy. >> how would you describe her? >> she was pretty coherent. she was medicated. she's quite heavenly medicated but we she seemed quite co-subsequent. we had a number of conversations over two days talking about her life, her life now, and the case. interestingly i was surprised by this. she actually wants to be tried for her brother's death in massachusetts because she feels she's innocent and she wants the opportunity to clear her name. >> you offer in this article a new theory about that shooting in 1986 of her brother. you believe she had a different target. >> i do. i looked at this. for years people said it was either a murder or an accident that the gun misfire. i spoke to somebody who knows
8:43 am
the family who said there had been another theory, which is in fact, there had been a fight that morning between amy and her father and when she came downstairs with her shotgun, she may not have been to shoot her brother but to possibly care or possibly shoot her father. >> you offered this theory to her parents who you also interviewed and blievg that's the first interview with the parents as well. how did they react to the theory? >> well, they did denied it. and judy bishop amy's mother became quite upset. we talked it through. i wondered about the time line for that day and i raised this question. they essentially suggested that the person who had floated the idea to me was lying and that because judy was in the room when seth died in a way, nobody can really question her narrative about the death of her son. >> how likely is it do you think, that we'll get a trial in massachusetts? they said they don't see the need for a trial but she wants one. >> pretty unlikely.
8:44 am
i dome think they're inclined to proceed. whatever might have happened this would be a hard case for the district attorney in massachusetts to bring. a cold case is tough to bring generally and this was never investigated as a crime to begin with because it was treated as an accident in 1986. handling the evidence was not done as it would be if it were a crime. >> as you were reporting this shooting the newtown shootings happen and the whole idea of mental illness and trying to telegraph things like this happening. what do you take away from this case, you know relative to that now? >> it's funny. after newtown there was a discussion about mental illness and how wu need to be much more attuned to red flags that we might see in people before they actually commit these brutal acts. looking at the amy bishop story what i realized is we also need to think about denial. there are red flags out there. what more obvious rhett flag would there be than somebody who would actually have shot her
8:45 am
brother a shotgun. in this case not just the family but the local police department. they didn't look at that as closely as they might have. that is part of the human ten tendency we might have. >> what parent really wants to believe that their child might actually kill somebody. >> right. exactly. and to face the possibility of losing the child. >> >>. patrick. thank you so much for being with us. up next it is black history month and we're going to tack a look at america's original home grown terrorist group, the ku klux klan. where it flourished and the lessons to be learned from its intolerance intolerance. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday".

you'd get hundreds sometimes thousands of spectators who would come. they would be able to buy refreshment refreshments klan souvenirs. >> these old pictures are amazing. were there ever demonstrations against them? >> not so much during that period. you would have people who would write about them editorials, speakers. nothing other than the civil rights movement and there were a lot of back and forth between those. >> that's one of the reasons in your book you talk about how they help get really a significant presence there. >> yes. there is a lot of connections to mainstream groups institutions leadership in north carolina. and, you know this is the way that they're able to recruit, both through there's rallies but also through fueling the sense that the leadership of north carolina carolina, elected officials, were not going do anything to
8:51 am
stem the civil rights tide. unlike places like mississippi and alabama, they couldn't count on their governor to stand in school doors literally and figuratively so the klan came in to try to fill that kind of vacuum. >> as part of your book you interviewed some former members of the kkk. how willing were they to talk to you? >> it was a mix. there was the national leader during the 1960s. the fact that i talked to him early on really sort of vetted me for a lot of other members who held mr. shell -- >> you got the seal of approval and that opened the door. >> a bit, yes. >> is the klan still active today? >> they are still active. there are more klan groups however, the vast majority are small, very marginal. but there's also a blending and merging of lines between klans,

a blanket of snow other new york city. welcome to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm rebecca jarvis. >> and i'm anthony mason. the storm is battling the northeast. and online dating, what parents should do to keep their kids safe. and who will win at tomorrow night's grammy awards. it could be rihanna nominated for best solo performance for "where have you been." let's go to the top story though. the mighty storm lark states up
9:01 am
and down the coast with fierce winds and mountains of snow. here's the very latest. governors in five states have declared states of emergencies. the storm is blamed for at least five deaths so far. at least 650,000 customers across the region are without power. a nuclear power plant in massachusetts has lost power and shut down. authority says there's no threat to public safety though. and most of travel has been suspended. cbs weather consultant david bernard is tracking the weather for us. how much have we seen on the snow? >> we receive plenty of it. the good news is we're not going to see much more. the snow has ended in the new york city area also western ktd. but it's to the east where we're still seeing some of these heavier snow bands across areas of coastal mairng eastern massachusetts, southeastern new hampshire and rhode island. we'll continue to have heavier
9:02 am
bands moving through ore the next five hours. in fact, an additional 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible in the region. there's a lot go through. this will give you an idea of what we've seen. some places we're talking about have actually measured close to three feet of snow. look in connecticut, hamdan connecticut, 24. long island anywhere from 23 to 26 inches of snow. very impressive. we've had many wind gusts as will that have been as high as 75, even 08 miles per hour. >> david long before the northeast is clear of this? >> here's where the low pressure is. again, it's just off of cape cod. it's going to continue to move to the east coast pretty quickly wachl our storm trachlkt most of the snow is going to be clearing the coastline. again, i think nothing 6 six to
9:03 am
eight hours and then everybody will do the cleanup process. >> i always like how david bernard does the reports from boston. he's laughing in the background. they're used to snow there, but this is looking like one for the history books. terrell brown is in the middle of it. terrell, you don't get the miami side but how is it going to boston? >> reporter: sounds pretty nice, especially when you see snow coming down. power outages are the main concern. mrp than 400,000 customers are out of pow ir. at the height of the storm we're talking wind gusts and blowing over trees and power lines, knocking those folks into the dark. and if you talk to a lot of folks out here they'll make mention to this storm being similar to what they saw back in 1978. in that storm, about 100 people were killed thousands more
9:04 am
stranded. the reason we have so many emergency declarations the travel ban being in place on the roadway with of course, the exception of first responders and twhoes have to woncht shutting down mass transit, all of that to avoid the situation. it's even tough to look into the camera to even do this live report because the wind blowing the snow into your face and it's stinging just to look up. of course this will continue and a long process ahead to getting the folks' power back. >> in all seriousness, thank you for fairing that storm in boston. important story developing there. we're getting our big share of the storm this morning in no, p and there are concerns for those hard hit by superstorm sandy just three months ago. manuel bojorquez is in central park. hi, again, manuel what can you tell us. >> new york city appears to be breathing a sigh of relief this
9:05 am
morning. other parts of the region have been hit hard. at least one death is being reported in new york city and this morning the big problem appears to be simply getting around. police say dozens of cars are stranded on the expressway. this happened despite the snow plows ready to clear the main highways. this morning the governor ordered all roads closed until further notice. there are reports up to 34 inches of snow fell in some parts of that state. these are regions where the memory of superstorm sandy and its devastation are still fresh. one silver lining the story is bringing everybody together. there are haitians here helping to rebuild homes. they're here since people came
9:06 am
to help them. many have never seen snow but they said they would work through it. it is of course their way to give back to this area for the help they received. rebecca and anthony? >> manuel bojorquez in central park. thanks manuel. naturally this huge storm is a huge headache for travelers and airways and travel lines trying to get to where that i want to go. let's find out how long this is going to last. thanks for sticking around ben. >> i understand anthony has a flight he's hoping to catch. >> how does he get to the grammy? >> i have a better report for you than if you were flying from boston. if you were flying from boston you would be out of luck. i talked with them. all big airlines that have a presence in this area -- at of late last night things would start to resume today. it all depends on conditions.
9:07 am
unfortunately this area it's not as bad as first expected. that's a hopeful sign. the later in the day, the better the chance you're going to have of getting there. all flights won't be operating. some will. part of it is the luck of the draw. >> what's the problem the airline has to deal with to get this up and good evening again. >> there are cancellations. now they have to assess things this morning, which they're doing right now or have just finished doing. so they're going to mobilize their planes to new york to send them to miami, chicago, all the place they need to do. it will take a little bit this morning to get it extorted but they might get close to a full schedule. i wouldn't be surprised if we have a full schedule by sunday monday. new england, i wouldn't hold your breathing. >> when you're in new england,
9:08 am
when do you think they'll get around? >> keep your fingers crossed. it looks like the storm will be out by 6:00. that's probably hartford providence manchester maybe give them the morning, the evening to clean up, get planes back in tomorrow morning. i would say normal operations probably noon. but if you're in new england, i would not -- if you don't have to go by monday stay where you are. >> the rest of the country, too, we focused on the northeast but the rest of the country has the ripple effect of th planes being out in the wrong place, for example. if you're in houston and it's sunny and 70 and you want to go to phoenix, you may say why is this affecting me? it geeks have a knock-down effect effect. it's affecting travel
9:09 am
everywhere. amtrak says they're going have three trains today. we seal see. blowing snow is a prochblt fingers crossed. ben, thanks so much appreciate it. former illinois congressman jesse jackson jr. could face up to five years in prison. jackson sign add plea agreement with federal prosecutors on friday. he was being investigated for alleged misuse of campaign funds. he abruptly disappear from congress last june citing medical issues. they'll decide if jackson deserves prison time. >> finally there's an answer for why the power went out. the device was improperly restalled. they said a relay fail and the company expected the power to stay on tonight when the super

9:24 am

9:25 am
taylor swift. this is a great pop song. frank ocean's in here. i've actually come to think this is between frank ocean and fun although taylor could come up and surprise us. it's hard to deny taylor swift a grammy. it doesn't work. >> you almost have to give it to her. >> song of the year? >> wow. another great category. good stuff here. i like miguel's "adorn," but, again, look at the other nominees. strong pop hits good southerns. adorn, very cool song. again, an update on a prince sound and people love it. ed sheeran. >> we're going to hear from him in just a minute. >> ed sheeran is somebody who's been recording since he was 13 or 14 years old. he's 21 now. he's had songs on albums by one direction a song on the new taylor swift album, he appears with her, but he's performing on
9:26 am
the grammys with elton john. and there are a lot of teen feigns who love him. think they'll meet him on grammy night and really like his word. >> finally best new artist. who do you think is going to take that? >> this is a lock. i have no question frank ocean. you have blaek shakes fun, but hands down this is frank ocean's category. i think people love him and this is the one he's sure to win. >> what about justin timberlake's performance? a lot of people are looking forward to that. >> it's going to be one of the highlights. back on the starjs brand-new song. ken told us justin was sending over a song his office that he was going to perform, and that leads me to believe we're going to hear a whole new timberlake song not on the radio. i know i sound like a teenager

bernard. good morning david. >> good morning, thoechblt it's set a record. portland maine, has had its biggest snowfall on record. it was 1979. the snow isn't quite done yet. here's a look at the radar. in new york, we're done with the snow there, but further to the east we still have heavy snow bands especially around manchester manchester. this big snow band left portland but still has dom the east and i think there's several more inches on the way. this medium blue area indicates another three to six inches of snow. that would look like over the next four to five hours and then it looks like things should finally begin to improve. >> david the effect of the wind, have they had a big impact?
9:32 am
>> yes. since yesterday, contributing to the power outages. right now we're still gusting to 56 in nantucket. boston. portland maine, has 43. that's still a problem. look at some of these wind gusts that we've had since yesterday. westport, connecticut, 82 miles an hour. hyannis on the cape 77 miles an hour. at low gal airport in boston they had wind gusts of 76 miles per hour. obviously that's been a big part of the storm, but that's improving greatly as the low is moving out. we're going to be done with this by later this afternoon. it ooh going to be about shoveling and plower. >> as much as i hate shoveling, that's good news. it's now 32 after the hour. now here's a closer look at the weather for yore weekend.

vehicular traffic in the greater streets of boston and that's been of great help us to. they're pushing the snow off the streets, back on the curbs. also the other aspect is people at home so they won't get in their cars and driving around the city. if people would stay in their homes for the next 48 hours and shovel their own sidewalk or shovel the sidewalk of an elderly person that would be very helpful. wi we still have four to six inches to go. the real issue is how cold it is. we have a windchill factor of 4 below zero and heavy winds. at 10:00 they have astronomical high tides in the lower areas of the city. i think people have cooperated. it's really a surprise to me how well people have cooperated with
