you. we begin with day three of the urgent manhunt for two cold-blooded killers behind that horrific attack in paris. >> and this morning looks like thrs accused of that deadly bloodbath at a french newspaper. abc's alex marquardt is live for us on the phone right now. what is the very latest on these late-breaking developments? >> reporter: good morning, t.j. good morning, reena. this manhunt may be coming to a close. we understand that according to french town near here 27 miles outside of paris about a 40-minute drive right next to the main airport in paris, charles de gaulle airport, and security forces have converged and there are helicopters in the sky so we do have an ongoing hostage situation and understand there is one hostage. now, the brothers had been
sighted by police according to the interrorerrior ministry and had been focusing their efforts on that wooded area very rural. it's countryside and they were going from village to village literally house to house these s.w.a.t. teams going into houses searching them searching yards, searching the undergrowth for these two men and it appears at this time this morning they have zeroed in on these men in this town about 25 miles outside paris. >> we can see the images right now, the search from the air, from foot. what can you tell us about the security presence that france has there that they brought in? is this version of the fbi and cia obviously working to capture these guys? >> reporter: it's hard to imagine the security operation getting any bigger. as you mention at the top, 88,000 security personnel have been deployed all across the country ranging from uniformed policemen on the street the
gendarme to paramilitary forces that we saw yesterday, the french equivalent of s.w.a.t. which here are called raid and also deployed military forces so it is an absolutely massive operation, not just here in paris where that deadly attack took place on wednesday, but all around the country. there's an elevated terror alert level here in paris as well as in the piquardie region. now that search and this hostage situation we know of has gotten closer to paris. as i say it's only about a 5-mile drive. there is a security presence in paris around the country as they try to bring these two suspects in. >> and, alex why this area? how much have they been focused on this area and why have they gotten information and these brother, were they trying to flee and hide in this area or do they have connections possibly to this particular area where this hostage situation is going on? >> reporter: well we know that they -- one brother was living in paris.
another brother was living in another town so the area being focused on didn't necessarily have any connection to these men. but it was extremely rural, heavily wooded. you could imagine that it would be relatively easy to hide out there, whether in a barn or in a farm or just in the woods. it's unclear why they chose that area. we think that they went out there by car. we know that one of the cars they carried out the operation in was seized by police. we understand this morning that they have stolen another car. it was a small gray peugeot so we assume they've been driving around fleeing by car but unclear why they would have chosen these areas outside of paris except for the fact that they are outside paris where the main brunt of the security -- of the search was taking place. >> all right, alex marquardt on the line for us thank you for hopping on giving us the latest. again to our viewers it appears that police are zeroing in on
these two suspects in that terror attack. a hostage situation going on. at least one hostage being held. we'll give you any update we get on what's happening in this manhunt and, of course you can stay with us for live team coverage later on "good morning america." and we're also keeping a close eye on the effort to recover the black boxes that downed the airasia jet. this new video shows indonesia mill military divers. it shows the strong currents and the tail being partially buried. at least three more victims' bodies were covered raising the total to 47 of the 162 people on board. let's turn to this vicious blast of bitter cold that's crippling much of the country. well it is not finished causing chaos. >> this is what millions of americans can see looking out their windows, a thick, white wall of blowing snow road conditions in the midwest are extremely dangerous and hundreds of flights have been canceled.
>> well and take a look at this. the cold snap produced a few snow flurries as far south of florida. jacksonville recorded a trace of snow tying a record set in 1958. not enough to build a snowman. >> florida is warming up but nearly half the population won't be so lucky. this arctic blast will likely produce more record-breaking numbers. >> justin povick has the details. good morning to you, justin. >> reena and t.j. thanks. we've been focusing on the cold all week long. snow to mention at least through the daytime hours on friday which could cause a couple of travel delays along interstate 95 especially from new york city to hartford to portland areas further inland could see 2, 3, even 4 inches of snow. this will be a powdery dry snow that blows and whips around not concerned about a lot of accumulation. not going to be a big snowstorm. more concern into texas where they don't have a lot of wintry
precipitation, freezing rain and freezing drizzle friday into friday night that will cause big delays along 20 and 35 with chilly air continuing to reside in the southeast. reena and t.j., back to you. >> thanks justin. the house is expected today to pass a controversial keystone pipeline bill. president obama has already said he'd veto the bill if it's passed in congress. the matter could be further complicated by a ruling from the nebraska supreme court which could come as early as today. the decision is deciding whether state lawmakers were in the right when they approved the pipeline route through their state. the supreme court will meet behind closed doors to consider legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. the high court has five cases pending from states that ban gay unions. the issue is whether those bans violated the u.s. constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law. if the justices decide to take up the controversial cases, a ruling could come as early as june. >> there were remembrances from arizona to capitol hill marking four years since the mass shooting that gravely wounded
