8:03 am
to pandas. but first, when we think tornadoes we mostly think of the midwest, but this morning, they're cleaning up in brooklyn and queens, a pair of tornadoes in new york city. they tore through the northeast. meteorologist ginger zee all over these. >> each blue dot represents damaging wind reports. from littleton, new hampshire, to durham, north carolina, but the only tornadoes, though, on this day were in new york city. dark clouds descended over the new york skyline saturday as not one, but two tornadoes hit the big apple. >> oh, my god, look at the tornado1 >> the winds spent debris and even rooftops flying. >> just 15 seconds of intense wind, white noise, things crashing all around me. >> reporter: leaving mangled water front properties in its wake.
8:04 am
the same cell is thought to spawn this same system in brooklyn. >> there was a super wind. which is like the only way i could describe it. like it was sucking you up. >> reporter: the tornadoes were only the small part of the day. queens was also hit with flash flooding. cars nearly submerged. in new jersey, 75-mile-per-hour winds sent a tree limb into this living room. and there were over 286 reports of wind damage from south carolina to new hampshire. including a stage collapse in virginia. this morning, power has been restored to most of the 200,000 homes that lost it up and down the east coast. so, wait, tornadoes in new york city? does that happen? well, it did two years ago in brooklyn. and there have been,
8:05 am
before the two reported yesterday, 12 reported since 1950. so, it does happen. but here's a look at what happens behind the front. not a lot of severe weather to talk about. thank goodness for cleanup. 77 in philadelphia. i'll have the entire nation's forecast. and a check on tropics. >> thank you, ginger. a lot of other news overnight, for that i go to my co-parent ron claiborne. >> i want to make sure that jake is okay. >> a-okay. it was a good bonding. good morning, everyone. we begin with a standoff between u.s. and russia, secretary of state hillary clinton acknowledged deep differens between the two countries over to how handle the civil war in syria. russia opposes increased pressure on syria. this comes as syrian war planes pounded the city of aleppo. and a pakistani-based terror group allegedly holding
8:06 am
an american hostage as a prisoner of war, he will not be harmed. he's been held in afghanistan for more than three years. they say he will not be harmed. in response to the obama administration declaring the organization a terrorist group. that was on friday, however, he vowed more attacks on u.s. and nato forces. and in nicaragua, thousands of people were evacuated from their homes after a volcano erupted. you can see there, more than two miles into the air. people nearby heard three powerful explosions. before seeing that cloud. take a look at this frightening collision. a tulane player collides with a teammate. he suffers a fractured spine. he's in stable position. he has some feeling, walker, walker will undergo surgery in now, honeymoon may not have lasted long.
8:07 am
they tied the knot during a tailgating ceremony before their teams faced off. arizona went on to upset oklahoma state. upsetting holly who's now asking for a divorce. it didn't last long. just kidding, by the way. that was a joke. >> they're off on their honeymoon now. >> they're off on their honeymoon to a bowl game. we're going to turn to politics now. we're just 50 days away from election day. it's your voice, your vote. as we all know, the election comes down to a handful of key battlegrounds. from the romney campaign, just where they stand in those key states. abc's david kerley joins us with more from washington. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. this is a game of hopscotch as candidates jump one state to another. this small group of states and mitt romney is highlighting a stumble at the democratic convention.
8:08 am
in virginia, mitt romney went after the democrats' awkwardly inserting the word "god" into their platform. he seemed to take it a step further. >> i will not take god out of our platform. i will not take god out of my heart. sxwlr was romney suggesting that the president wants to remove "in god we trust" from coins? no said his campaign. in florida, it was the florida, it was the president mocking those questions about his birth certificate. when he ran into a nearly 7-year-old. >> you were born in hawaii. >> on kauai. >> you have a birth certificate? >> say, yes, sir. >> reporter: this exchange in a key battleground state, one of ten that will ultimately decide the election. also this morning, the romney campaign admits that it's not leading in any of the states, at best, a tie in some. before the convention, the
8:09 am
president was up 3 in florida. up 2 in wisconsin. but numbers changed and that lead in wisconsin may have disappeared because this morning. >> here in wisconsin, we're not better off under obama. >> reporter: mitt romney added wisconsin to other battleground states, which is why you'll hear statements like this when the candidates just have to remember to change the name of that battleground state. >> we will florida and we will this election. >> reporter: and a state name that's going be inserted today, ohio is at this time least battleground stop for the president. romney is off the trial today. >> david kerley, thank you. let's bring now in the host of "this week" with george stephanopoulos. fworng to you, sir. the romney people are conceding that the battleground state math is tough for them. what can they do about it? >> they're trying to flip what has been a solid democratic
8:10 am
state, the state of wisconsin the home of romney's running mate, paul ryan, they'll have to do that in order to open up their possibilities right now. if you look at that map that david kerley put in his piece, right now, president obama has a small lead, but he has a lead in all of the battleground states. >> you got paul ryan on the show this morning, a big get, do you think he can help put the campaign over the top in wisconsin? >> he can make a difference. there's no question about that. the minute he was chosen he increased mitt romney's chances in wisconsin. he's excited conservatives. made mitt romney feel better on the stump. but also excited democrats and liberals and has provided a big target for the democrats. they go after the ryan budget. on the stump every single day and in their ads. >> 50% lightning rod. lot of people were surprised by this joke that president obama made. several weeks ago, mitt romney
8:11 am
took a lot of flak for making a birther joke. now the president makes a birther joke. was it a wise move. >> when mitt r0mney does. when barack obama does it, they're doing exactly the same thing, they're playing to their base. he's reminding all of his voters, boys, watch out for these other guys, they don't think i was born here. >> that's really the game here, excite the base on both sides. then target the tiny sliver of undecided votes. >> probably fewer than 5% of the voters right now. >> george stephanopoulos, we appreciate it. we want to remind people, george stephanopoulos has a big show this morning, including the interview we mentioned with vice presidential nominee paul ryan. plus the powerhouse roundtable. it's "this week" with george stephanopoulos. thank you, george. in just two days will mark the 11th the attacks of 9/11. abc news has obtained a law
8:12 am
enforcement bulletin warning of lone wolf attacks. we have been looking into that in washington, in previous years, terrorist chatter had typically increased leading up to this anniversary date? >> that's right, bianna. we stepped up airport security and law enforcement always remaining on high alert. but this year the security assessment has changed. as law enforcement agencies across the country, prepare for the anniversary of september 11th, a new bulletin obtained by abc news has been told by a decline in 9/11 messaging by al qaeda. but they warn, lone offender threats are still a concern. law enforcement will still remain vigilant. but these scale-back statements pale in comparison. to the climate before last year's ten-year anniversary. >> entire intelligence community
8:13 am
has been on heightened alert. >> there are specific, credible, but unconfirmed threat information. >> reporter: preparing for atta attacks with using car bombs, but why is al qaeda quieter this year? >> 23 of the top 30 al qaeda commanders are off the field, either dead or captured. in the last two to four years. this has been a pretty tough of months for al qaeda. >> reporter: while an al qaeda threat has been downgraded the threat of lone wolf has increased. recent democratic terrorist attacks, from portland to dallas, have been launched by single individuals. law enforcement officials those attacks by lone wolfs are harder to track, counterterrorism are much better at infiltrating terrorist groups. dan? >> thank you for your reporting this morning. now to the mystery that literally dropped out of the sky. the or to a plane's landing
8:14 am
gear came crashing to earth in a quiet neighborhood right outside of seattle. how is this happened? and why is the government being so tight-lipped about it? abc's john schriffen is the story. >> lot of unanswered questions. witnesses said that it happened at a busy time of day. one woman noticed a plane flying overhead that sounded like it was in trouble, and out of nowhere, the piece came crashing down. it's the mystery that has the whole city of tent, washington, everyone wondering, how did this get here? the object, the size of a refrigerator door, fell from the sky, just before 7:00 friday morning, crashing down to this residential street. just outside of seattle. >> we heard a big crash. like a slap, slap. it did sound like a big large piece of metal. >> reporter: the faa was soon on the scene. in a statement the agency told abc news that it was a "landing
8:15 am
gear door from a boeing 767." but, where did the door came from? just moments before it crashed neighbors noticed a cargo plane flying unusually low. >> it sounded like it was distressed or vibrating. >> what could have happened in this instance, as the aircraft was coming in to land in seattle, the force of air on the landing gear door could have forced off already a weakened door. leading to this piece of metal going into the residential area. >> reporter: this is not the first instance of plane parts falling from the sky. back in may, pieces the size of cell phones scattered on cars in toronto. and in 2009, a dozen houses and numerous cars in brazil were reported damaged when parts, one weighing as 550 pounds, fell from a cargo freighter. >> this is something that happens quite frequently, as
8:16 am
airplanes get older. and things to tend. >> now, back to that recent incident in washington state, the plane part that fell in washington was clearly marked with identifying information. the faa has tracked down the plane but will not release which company owns it. the good news, though, looking at the size of that piece, nobody was injured. >> thank you for your reporting this morning. we appreciate it. well, it may have been the most dramatic scene at the o.j. simpson trial of the century. that bloody glove not fitting on the fallen football star's hands. now a startling charge. one of the prosecutors in a panel discussion at a new york law school, accused the defense of tampering with the piece of evidence that ultimately acquitted o.j. simpson. >> if it doesn't fit, you must acquit. >> it was the defining moment in the criminal trial of the century. >> he would have killed. he could have killed.
8:17 am
and did kill these two people. >> reporter: accused murderer o.j. simpson struggling into those blood-soaked gloves. jury wasn't convinced. now, 17 years later, christopher darden, the same prosecutor who told o.j. simpson to put on those gloves, is accusing the defense of evidence tampering. >> what i think happened is that the defense manipulated that glove so that it did not appear to fit. >> reporter: darden claims that attorney johnnie cochran tore the lining so simpson's fingers would get stuck. another member of simpson's legal dream team is firing back. >> 17 years later, he makes a serious allegation against the dead lawyer, there should be a full and complete investigation. if he's lying,
8:18 am
which i am convinced he is, he should be disbarred. >> reporter: darden couldn't reached for comment. but some legal experts believe no harm was done. >> when you lose was built as a slam-dunk, it became the most publicized case in modern-day history, it does cause a little pain. frankly, he has the right to give his thoughts whether it's speculation or not. >> reporter: the question is now whether darden can prove his theory or not? for "good morning america," clayton andell, abc news, denver. >> and our thanks to clayton. time now for a check of the weather and back over to ginger. hey, ginger. the tropics are just full of fun, i say fun, there's really no threat to land, at least not the u.s. right now. tropical storm leslie. hurricane mike. and a new system that could become nadine. leslie will become a hurricane by wednesday 2:00 p.m. what that
8:19 am

8:21 am
there's a big question gripping washington, d.c. this morning, it's not who will win the presidential election or whether hillary will run in 2016, no, it's a potential panda pregnancy at the national zoo. >> yeah, you would think that with modern technology that zooologists would be able to give a yes or no. but it turns out predicting panda pregnancy isn't that easy. here's abc's john muller. >> reporter: are they or aren't they? all focused on the famous couple and their baby. not william and kate. it's these pdas. mei xiang and tian tian, adored by the hoards of visitors to d.c.'s national zoo could have a new cub in a couple of weeks. the pregnancy watch is on. the clues -- mei has begun building a nest. sounds like a done deal. but panda pregnancy is never a done deal until the cub is born. that's because panda moms also have a phenomenon called false
8:22 am
pregnancy. the couple who came to the u.s. from china, in 2000, had one baby cub, seven years ago, they also have had seven false pregnancies. with ultrasounds, it's almost impossible to tell whether it's real or fake. if mei fails this time, she could be sent to china. but so far the zoo said that signs are good. and everyone is hoping that this time it will be pandemonium. for abc news, john muller. >> i mean, unbelievable. >> cub in the oven. i like the sub title. >> hopefully there is. coming up on "good morning america" -- miley cyrus' alleged stalker. the frightening arrest caught on tape. this man busted at the home of the young pop star, carrying scissors,
