on this big story, coming up in the show. we're going to start, though, with the big snowstorm, which is either in the process of or about to slam a huge chunk of america. this monster stretches over 20 states, from the midwest to the northeast. abc's rob nelson is in a very snowy polasky, which is in upstate new york. >> reporter: it is a balmy five degrees this morning. people have been feet of snow the last few days. and like much of us along the east coast, we're getting ready for round two. winter wonderland. how about one of the biggest snowstorms of the year. and it's not even officially winter yet. 20 states from the midwest to the northeast are on alert for snowfall today. upstate new yorkers are bigging themselves out of a whopping six feet of snow in redfield. and four feet in coldon.
plows and snowblowers are out in full force. people riding snowmobiles instead of cars. >> you're bound to have snow sooner or later. >> reporter: in missouri, snow and ice caused treacherous accidents. >> the back roads are ice and snow. it makes it hard to drive on and everything. >> reporter: they've begun their preparation process, filling up trucks with salt and brian early friday, in anticipation of the weekend weather. nine inches in erie, pennsylvania. almost six inches in southern iowa. and 6 1/2 inches of snowfall and counting in central illinois, getting enough to cover this football field right before a high school playoff game. and look at this. temperatures getting so cold in new hampshire, firefighters had to fight fire with ice, literally. they try to hose down this fire, only to have the water freeze and coat the building in ice.
major cities such as new york, philadelphia and chicago. the new york area has a feet of 1,800 plow trucks ready to go. >> we're prepared for almost everything. >> if it's 5:00 a.m. or 8:00 a.m., when it starts, we'll be out there. >> reporter: folks up here in upstate new york, they are used to rough winters. for the rest of us on the east coast, we know we're in store for a pretty messy weekend. bianna? >> a messy weekend, indeed. we're happy to have lee goldberg back with us this morning. you've been tracking this massive storm, lee. this is going to be a messy weekend for a huge portion of the country. >> winter's a week away. mother nature is ignoring the calendar the entire month. you have 22 states showing advisories or warns. the biggest collection in the sneer your northeast, where we see the heaviest tolls.
the storm center is right here. here's a picture from st. louis. light to moderate snowfall right now. the snow is extending into cincinnati, cleveland, detroit, pittsburgh. even some dustings have reached the new york city area. we'll probably see about four inches in new york. cleveland, midday. but as the storm shifts to the coast and strengthens, we see the biggest storms on i-90 and in new england. and the rain/snow line, that's getting to new york city about 9:00 or 10:00 today. gets to boston too late. the computer model frost showing three to six inches. cleveland, four-inches. and six inches or more in the boston area. impressive. but nothing like the snow in jerusalem. more on that in our weather repor report. >> did you just say snow in jerusalem? we have more details on the school shooting in colorado on
friday. eerie flashback to columbine. we know more about his arsenal, the intended target. and the heroism in the midst of this crisis. clayton sandell is in sentence l centennial, colorado. good morning. >> reporter: this entire school behind me is a crime scene. investigators working all night to find out what happened here when a gunman, a students gunman walked through the doors, making no effort to hide his shotgun. the terror began at 12:33 p.m. >> shotgun shell on the ground. assuming they have a shotgun. >> reporter: when police say 18-year-old karl piersen, a senior, walked into his school for the last time. he had one target, tracy murphy, the school librarian. >> the kid went after him, specifically. he wanted to kill him. >> reporter: murphy runs the school debate team. khtv reports that piersen was recently kicked off the team.
>> this shooting was a result of revenge on the part of the shooter, because of a confrontation or a disagreement. >> reporter: in the chaos, a 15-year-old girl was shot in the head. >> i have a student down in the athletic hall. she is bleeding. >> reporter: she is in critical condition. but what murphy did next may have saved many more lives. knowing he was the target -- >> i believe it was a wise, tactical decision for him to remove himself from the school. >> reporter: about five minutes after it all began, as officers closed in, police say piersen shot himself. >> the suspect has been found inside the school. and he has deceased. >> reporter: overnights, murphy, the librarian, left his home, declining to talk. >> you doing okay? >> reporter: at the same time, bomb squads and investigators began searching the home where police say piersen lived with his mother. this is the latest high-profile shooting for colorado, just 15 miles from last year's movie
city massacre in aurora. and only eight miles from columbine high school. the headline in this morning's "denver post," again. did you think this would happen at your kids' school? >> to be honest, there's not a day that they leave that i don't have a fleeting thought about that. >> reporter: police believe at this point that piersen, who was armed with that shotgun, along with a couple of molotov cocktails was acting alone. they do not believe they are connected to the newtown shooting. just a coincidence. >> a coincidence. and that headline says it all. again. clayton, our thanks to you. we're going to switch gears and turn to the $550 million jackpot up for grabs. there was no winner overnight in the megamillions lottery, which sent the jackpot to a near-record high. the next drawing comes tuesday night. and millions of americans will be vying for the chance to pick the winning numbers, just in time for christmas.
linzie janis is in new york city. one of many spots across the country with lottery fever. hey, linzie. >> reporter: can you leave it? an unlucky friday the 13th. that's despite the fact that organizers say they sold 40% more tickets than they thought they would. here in new york state, where we are, there were $500,000 worth of tickets sold every hour. and still, no winner. this morning -- the gigantic megamillions jackpot is rolling over. rolling all the way to more than $500 million. >> i got the winning ticket. >> reporter: ramping up another round of millions of ticket sales. buyers, hoping to be the lucky ones to claim that huge sum. >> you can't win if you don't play. and the odds are the odds. >> reporter: this jackpot is second only to the largest megamillions total in march of 2012. which reached a whopping $656 million.
before three ticketholders in kansas, maryland and illinois with the winfall. each taking $13.6 million. >> this is a lot. >> reporter: but those hoping to get their hands on some real big money -- >> i would be able to do a lot more. i'd be able to be with my family. and have a much better christmas. >> reporter: a better christmas, indeed. if you won, you'd be able to afford all the gifts in the 12 days of christmas song, nearly 5,000-times over. or the entire neiman marcus fantasy gift catalog, for you and your 90 closest friends. >> it only takes one ticket. it's all about doing a little dreaming. you may win. you may not win. but i think it's just that brief escape that you get to think about. >> reporter: gearing up for the next drawing this tuesday, it may pay to escape to a different
state. >> thank you. >> reporter: the winners of the top-ten largest drawings come from maryland, new jersey and new york, most often. but don't pack your suitcase just yet. the odds of winning the now-huge $550 million jackpot are still 1 in 259 million. so, tuesday is the big day now. that jackpot, the fourth-largest in history. by the time we get to that draw, though, it could be the largest in megamillions history, ever. there were some winners, overnight. nine people matched five numbers to claim $1 million each. i'd take that. >> maybe they can afford a partridge and a pear tree now. >> how do you put a price on a partridge and a pear tree? how do we come up with the numbers? i question the math. linzie, thank you very much. there were other stories developing overnight. for that, we go over to mr. ron
claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. a kansas man is in custody this morning, facing federal terror charges. he's charged with plotting to blow up a local airport. he allegedly drove a van he thought was packed with explosives to the wichita airport on friday. but what he thought was a bomb was actually a fake. part of an fbi sting operation. >> terry lowan was real. and he was committed to executing this plan. >> authorities were alerted to the plot by comments he posted on the internet about jihad. and the body of nelson mandela is onboard a military jet on the way to his ancestral hometown. earlier today, his coffin departed pretoria. his body had laid in state since wednesday.
mandela's casket is due to arrive in the eastern cape later this afternoon. he will be buried in the village of qunu, in a family cemetery. and a bird strike forced a plane to make an emergency landing in stockton, california. the plane landed there safely. though, it was scary for the passengers. >> all i could see was a circle of feathers, hitting the front of the engine. >> what's going on? just make it there alive. >> the passengers were delayed six hours in stockton before finally being put on a plane to vegas. finally, a real-life grinch. this thief caught swiping, allegedly, christmas trees. and it was caught on camera. surveillance cameras rolling in new bedford, massachusetts. a woman trying to load trees into her pickup truck. when a worker confronts her, she had a change of heart and offers to pay for the trees. too late. the guy called the cops. and the cops got her.
>> did she think people wouldn't see that? >> who knows what she was thinking. but she did offer to pay for them. >> inside the mind of a criminal. thank you, ron. appreciate it. we are heading into a big and potentially very complicated night for college football. the heisman trophy will be handed out. the year's best player tonight. the odds-on favorite to win, florida state's jameis winston. he was cleared from a rape case. but they may reopen the investigation. >> reporter: jameis winston, he is so talented on the field. he's so charismatic as a leader, it's tough to believe he's just a freshman. if he wins the most prestigious award in college football tonight, he will have done so despite the investigation that could have derailed his heisman hopes. there's little doubt florida state star jameis winston will win the heisman trophy. but at the same pre-heisman news
conference, winston once again answered questions about the sexual assault investigation he was cleared of. >> i knew i did nothing wrong. i knew that i would respect the process. and i'd eventually be vindicated. >> reporter: hours before, patricia carol, the lawyer for winston's accuser, held a news conference of her own. >> this doesn't strongly reign of an investigation of rape victim, rather than a rape suspect, i don't know what does. >> reporter: accusing the detectives of mishandling the investigation. and demanding the attorney general investigate the tallahassee police. in a response to abc news, a spokesperson for governor rick scott's office released this statement, saying, that is not going to happen. the state attorney's office and fdle did a thor reinvestigation of this case. and they concluded that no further action on this matter is required. carol claims detectives did not interview key witnesses, used incomplete forensic tests and said they never tested the
alleged victim's blood for date rape drugs. >> she didn't remember what happened. consistent with a date rape drug. >> reporter: the legal issue, in terms of the heisman, sadly, will have no impact on that. >> reporter: the nation's top college quarterback, now gearing up for what will likely be his next big win, taking home the heisman. >> i'll have a smile on my face. i'm glad the whole thing is over. >> reporter: if winston wins tonight, he will welcome the youngest player to ever win the heisman trophy. next up for winston, leading his team in the national championship game, january 6th, against auburn, which happens to be his 20th birthday. >> we'll be watching closely tonight. >> absolutely. >> thank you. we're going to turn to prince harry's trekking triumph. braving the frigid tundra, all in the name of charity. celebrating the accomplishment of his expedition where temperatures dipped way below
zero. abc's bob woodruff, who interviewed harry on his trek to the north pole, has all the details. >> reporter: more than 200 miles, temperatures below zero. 12 wounded veterans made their way to the south pole, along with prince harry, the military pilot who has served twice in afghanistan. >> we all had hopes. and all in all, mission success. >> reporter: also on this voyage, the true blood star, alexander scar guard. >> it's been very, very tough. we have everything from a mind guy to a double-amputee on the team. and everyone made it. >> reporter: i did have the opportunity to travel with prince harry on his previous arctic trip to the north pole. is it okay if i call you prince harry? >> can i call you bob? >> reporter: yeah. it was for the same organization, walking with the
wounded, a charity that provides rehabilitation services for wounded veterans. >> it's a great charity. they're doing fantastic work in trying to help soldiers that have been wounded overseas to come back home. >> reporter: the trip was supposed to be a race to the pole. between the americans and the brits. but because of weather and stress, they canceled the competition, traveling together, instead. >> everyone's feeling a bit tired. but have to get used to the rhythm. >> reporter: now, in rhythm, they are heading home. for "good morning america," i'm bob woodruff, abc news, new york. now, to a story in an entirely different climate. if you're lucky enough to have a pool in your backyard, part of the joy must be looking out the window and seeing people enjoying themselves. >> people like people. like your kids, real-life humans. what you don't anticipate is seeing a group of wild bears splashing around. this is a scene one homeowner in florida witnessed. tai hernandez has more. i would have been freaking out.
>> reporter: giving a florida woman the shock of her life. right outside her back door, a group of black bears at her pool. they call eed 911 for help. >> two bears are in my house. i'm so scared. >> reporter: a water hose was all it took to turn the pool into a playground for the trio of bears. they jumped into a screened enclosure, in the cool water for horseplay. the close encounter was caught on video, while she watched the scene unfold in through her living room window. one of the bears coming in for a closer look. >> i'm so sared. they're trying to break my window. i said, get out. i told the bear. i said, get out. don't come inside. >> reporter: for nearly an hour, the animals played in their backyard bear oasis. and rough housing just a bit. fortunately for all, they ran off on their own. this all played out just days
after two bears were euthanized for mauling a woman in central florida. >> people have been complaining about the screen porch. after the dog food. getting into the trash. it happens all over the state. it's not just contained to one area. >> reporter: the florida wildlife commission is considering setting traps to capture the three, swimming bears. wildlife experts usually tell homeowners if they don't return in a week, they're unlikely to come back at all. but the incident had left this florida woman shaken. you can't blame her. >> she has a week to wait. see if they liked the pool or not. >> she's leaving out water wings for them. >> thank you, tai. time, now, for a check of the weather. and back over to wabc's -- >> i've been hoping to get the word water wings in the broadcast all morning. >> you did. >> it's a lifelong goal for everyone. look at this picture. if you had to guess, where is it from? maybe buffalo, new york? how about jerusalem? this is a week and a half ago.
now, it's the miracle in white. 15 inches of snow. maybe the biggest snow ever in jerusalem. they get a snow every five to seven years. this is snow in syria, even cairo. just remarkable. see that happening since flooding in the gaza, as well. and the cold continues there. back to the states and the warm part of this storm today, shows rainfall that's going into the carolinas, into the southeast. could be severe weather from tallahassee to pensacola. more cold in the upper midwest. this time, not as harsh as we saw earlier in the week. about 5 to 15 degrees below normal. finally moderation out west. nice to see 82 in l.a. on monday. that's the latest.
