this morning on "world news this morning on "world news now" -- isis manhunt. the fbi zeroing in on that masked terrorist thought to be an american. the new leads on his identity and if there are more like him who may eventually try to come home. disturbing details of eric frein's alleged deadly assault all found in a journal being read aloud by the police he targeted. and new images and sightings of the suspect as the manhunt continues. extreme weather. tornadoes in the midwest ripping people right out of their homes. similar monster storms toppling trees and power lines in the northeast. the nation bracing for tough forecasts through the weekend. and he wrote a song saying he wanted to get a go, get a go, get a go, get her back. he even named his latest album after her, but was it enough to save robin thicke's a-list marriage?
2:01 am
the answer in "the skinny" on this thursday, october 9th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >> good morning. i'm reena ninan. >> i'm t.j. holmes. glad you could spend some time with us here on this thursday. >> we're almost there. >> just checking. >> one more day after this. >> but then next week happens, right? >> that's right. >> okay. >> you'll get some sleep over the weekend, it will be better. it will be better. trust me. our top story, we are always talking about isis. it never ends. there's always some new development. and it's going over to the fbi. they are looking for americans who want to help isis or people who may already have. >> the bureau now getting substantial help from the public. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross with the very latest. >> reporter: the fbi says it's received what it called a substantial number of tips about the identity of the masked isis fighter believed to be an american or canadian.

2:03 am
>> reporter: even so, a senior fbi agent tells abc news that agents are already going through several serious leads based on the information that has come in. brian ross, abc news, new york. new questions this morning about the medical treatment given to ebola patient thomas eric duncan. duncan died yesterday at the dallas hospital where he had been kept in isolation. duncan was initially turned away from the hospital's emergency room after his condition worsened. in another development, passengers arriving from west africa will be more closely screened at five major airports. >> if there's a positive, either on the form or through the taking of the temperature, that person is immediately referred to an isolated area where cdc, the centers for disease control, takes over the situation. >> the new screenings will begin saturday at jfk and then expand to washington dulles, atlanta hartsfield-jackson, chicago o'hare and newark in new jersey. >> it's good to see the airports
2:04 am
getting some beefed up attention to passengers. even senator bill nelson from florida is saying that we should stop giving visas to these countries where they have these large ebola epidemics. >> the cdc will tell you that's going too far. the last thing you need to do is isolate these countries when they are going through this hell. we need to calm ourselves. you can't just shut them down at this point. but that's -- it just scares people to hear someone say we need to cut these people off altogether. >> a lot of fear mongering. >> people are scared. they have a right to be. ebola is -- we don't know ebola in this country. it's been such a foreign thing. now it's here. moving on, today is the 27th day that authorities in pennsylvania will be hunting for eric frein. he's the suspect in last month's deadly ambush of state troopers. >> new images of frein this morning. police have been reading also from his journal. abc's linzie janis with the details.

2:06 am
describe eric frein's actions as pure evil. >> thanks to abc's linzie janis reporting there. police say their most recent sighting of frein came tuesday afternoon when an officer thought he caught a glimpse of him from about 200 yards away. some extreme weather starting in massachusetts. this video shot from a drone showing hundreds of downed -- damaged trees. they were brought down early yesterday by a microburst, a strong storm packing winds up to 100 miles an hour. power lines in that area also stood no chance. that left several homes in the dark. a couple people suffered minor injuries but nothing serious. and officials confirm that a tornado tore through parts of kentucky tuesday. for bridget clark, she managed to survive a frightening experience after those strong winds carried her from her kitchen to the porch. >> all of a sudden, the roof just came down on my head. and then it sounded like just a swift wind just blew me off the
2:07 am
side of my kitchen door. >> the storm which caused flooding in the southwest is now on the move eastward. >> accuweather's jim dickey is tracking that weather system. he joins us now. jim? >> good morning, t.j., reena. holding on to some heavy rainfall here across the southwest. watching what's left of simon making its way north and eastward. the heaviest rain across eastern arizona. that's where we'll keep it in place as we head on through our thursday, northeastern arizona, northwestern new mexico. from there this moisture heads on to the rockies. into the nation's midsection. through late week, heavy rainfall here. widespread flooding issues from denver all the way to the indianapolis area. t.j. and reena, back to you. >> thank you, jim. now to our animal news update. we start in san jose, california. that's where one resident saw this mountain lion. yeah. he's standing on top of his car. and experts say it probably weighs 70 to 80 tons and is probably less than 2 years old. neighbors say they've seen plenty of deer in that area but never a mountain lion before.
2:08 am
>> i'm sure they mean 70 to 80 pounds. >> do you think you have insurance for fixing up that car? >> you have insurance. you can explain. that's a tough one. i was in the bay area for a while. that used to scare me. we used to do those stories every now and then. those mountain lions don't play. they have addresses and everything. >> this is from personal experience? >> yes, it is. we got used to seeing google streetcar, you would see them every once in a while cruise past your house, but this is out in the uae, united arab emirates. google used, what else, a camel. a camera was strapped to its hump. the camel's name means "taking the high road." google says using a camel meant a minimal disruption of the local environment. >> taking the high road. looks like he got the hard road. how many pounds is that camera? >> it does look heavy. >> what if we told you to put that camera on your back?
2:09 am
you wouldn't do that. >> whatever is required around here. lions and camels and bears, oh my. officials in suburban denver were called to free this black bear from the front seat of the car. although he really looks just fine. >> yeah, what is he doing? he's chilling. why are they bothering him. the bear facts here are no tickets were issued. the bear is fine. the car, not so much. again, we're talking about insurance claims with the other animal a moment ago, the mountain lion. so this guy -- again, you have pictures of it. you have evidence. i'm sure you're covered. >> you know who responded. officials that responded were the sheriff's deputy and for backup, the wildlife officials. >> the backup? >> yeah. >> but the bear is okay, right? is that the key in a situation like this? do you want to make sure the bear is okay? >> i think you have to make sure you can get out with your shirt still on, which reminds me of a song. ♪ bad bears bad bears who you gonna call ♪ >> isn't it what you gonna do?
2:10 am
>> well, what you gonna do. sorry. we're going to turn to "the skinny" now. >> reena. >> i'm thinking of robin thicke and maybe i have a chance of getting a record album, record deal. >> or maybe a date because he might be single. a rocky romance that you know about. we'll tell you how this is going to work out. he did everything he could to try to get her back. we don't know if it will actually work. first, how you could have been scammed right from your telephone bill. millions of customers have been affected. now you could be getting payback. we'll tell you how. that's next on "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now" weather brought to you by cascade platinum. the dishes are clean. i just gotta scrape the rest of the food off them. ew. how is that clean?! uhhh.... dish issues? quiet them with cascade platinum.
