7:00 am
good morning, america. and breaking overnight. snow emergency. a record-breaking winter storm blasting the east coast. blizzard-like conditions. dumping nearly two feet in some areas. powerful wind gusts. over 50 miles per hour, taking out power and trees and trucks. ginger is tracking it all. wild brawl. superstar jeff gordon attacks nascar's new bad boy. fists flying and the crowd cheering after gordon's car was spun out in the 200-mile-per-hour race. >> the way he races, i don't know how he's ever won a championship. >> will nascar crack down before tensions on the raceway get more out of control? what a view. that's a long way down. >> daredevil nik wallenda, breaking a new record with his death-defying tightrope walk high above chicago. blindfolded and without a net.
7:01 am
walking 671 feet on a rope no wider than a penny. and look at this mission impossible. superstar tom cruise clinging to the side of a plane soaring 5,000 feet above england. the breathtaking stunt making headlines this morning. and good morning, america. happy monday. how about that tom cruise, still doing his own stunts. take a look at that. we showed him on the plane right there. lara, you're bringing us that in just a little bit. >> that and dressed in a suit. and nik wallenda, every time he tries to top himself, blindfolded this time. there he is. >> with a stiff wind. >> crazy. >> that's so easy. >> so glad he made it. >> oh, my gosh. i can't even look at that.
7:02 am
we're going to begin with the wintry blast. frigid temperatures across the country. ginger back from chicago. tracking it all for us. >> i got to feel the frigid temperatures. north carolina, tennessee, we're talking record snow in the one to even almost two-foot category. parts of tennessee had more than 22 inches. i want to show you the deep freeze in place from parts of mississippi up through pennsylvania. there are warnings and advisories everywhere. the temperatures in the northeast, subfreezing for pittsburgh. and look at this, 25 boston. a foot of fresh snow in bangor, maine. gio benitez is right there. how is it feeling, gio? >> reporter: oh, it's cold. ginger, good morning to you. this is that heavy, wet snow. it's taken down power lines. and take a look at that massive tree down. 130,000 people without power right now. it's being called snovember. winter arriving early and with a vengeance. overnight, strong winds, blowing snow on the east coast. in maine, up to a foot of snow in some areas, creating dangerous conditions on the
7:03 am
road. this truck rolling over in portland. jay treadwell can't believe he's already digging out. looking around, when you see all the snow, have you ever seen anything like in this early? >> no, not this early. it's crazy. it was -- it came down fast, it was wet and heavy. >> reporter: further south, that same winter storm system bringing powerful winds, gusts up to 70 miles an hour. trees down all over parts of philly. crushing cars and take a look at this wintry mix blanketing over gillette stadium in massachusetts. >> there was snow all over the field. >> reporter: workers rushing to clear the field ready for kickoff. >> four-wheel drive is a must today. >> reporter: this resort lodge in tennessee digging out after a reported 22 inches of snow on saturday. snow outside sacramento, catching california drivers by surprise. even flagstaff, arizona, transformed into a southwestern
7:04 am
winter wonderland of sorts. the inch of snowfall arriving 18 days earlier than average. and we're told there were plenty of car accidents overnight. so, it's just another reminder you have to watch out for the danl rous, visible black ice on the roads. >> that's a great warning. this morning and through the first part of the week, we won't warm up that quickly. but we'll see some more milder air starting to take over. boston, into the 60s by the midweek. jacksonville, florida, warms up. no one really escapes this, george. and on the west coast, snow. i'll bring you that. we turn to politics now, "your voice, your vote." and those crucial midterm elections just one day away. americans voting all across the country, control of congress, so much more at stake. republicans seem to be closing in on the six senate seats they need to gain a majority. i'm here now with matthew dowd. matt, many of these races are
7:05 am
still very tight. nate silver from fivethirtyeight puts their chances at getting control at 74%. >> every poll has been to the republican advantage. i think you're about to see a republican takeover of the united states senate. >> and president obama tried to avoid it. he's not on the ballot. but in many ways, this has been a referendum on the president's performance. >> the midterms are national elections. the democrats ignored the idea that this was going to be a national referendum. republicans embraced it. it's like a tidal wave coming in, leaving the individual houses to batten down without building a seawall. the democrats didn't build a seawall. >> but not all good news for republicans, their brand still in very tough shape. and the americans are angry at just about every politician. >> that's why i think both parties are going to misread this election. it's not a vote for the republicans. they're still viewed negatively by the american public. democrats will try to isolate it.
7:06 am
it's only about the election. both parties have major brand problems going into the presidential election after this one. >> you'll join us tomorrow night. something new tomorrow night, for election night our whole team will be here for seven hours of breaking news across all our platforms, including a primetime special at 10:00 p.m. right here on abc. now to that wild brawl on the racetrack involving one of nascar's biggest stars, jeff gordon, and rival driver brad keselowski. it comes right in the heart of the sprint cup chase. abc's ryan smith is here, has the latest for us. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, robin. and you know this. at championship time, it's on. and if you think the guy whose collision prompted the melee is going to back off, think again. he says he races hard and it's nothing to be ashamed of. while jimmie johnson got the win at nascar's aaa texas 500 on /*
7:07 am
on sunday, this morning, it's this brawl -- after the race -- that's got everyone talking. nascar superstar jeff gordon going after former sprint cup champ brad keselowski after keselowski's number 2 car collided with gordon's number 24, spinning him out. >> a spin here. >> reporter: take a look. gordon screams at keselowski. then grabs his collar. and listen. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: the crowd noise swells. a scrum ensues. fists flying. the racers disappearing in the melee. moments later, keselowski emerges. bruised and spitting blood. after the fight, gordon with a bloody lip, didn't mince words. >> he's just a dip [ bleep ]. the way he races, i don't know how he's ever won a championship. >> reporter: keselowski becoming
7:08 am
known somewhat as a bad boy in nascar circles. this is his second post-race fight in four weeks. last time, it was matt kenseth, jumping him after the race in charlotte. >> contact there, kenseth and keselowski! >> reporter: keselowski earned a $50,000 fine for hitting kenseth on pit road and trying to wreck driver denny hamlin's car after the race. keselowski's said suntd sunday's crash is part of the race. >> we're just racing for the win. i don't want to ruin anyone's day. i wanted to win the race. that was our opportunity. >> reporter: so maybe he rethinks that overnight? well, not a chance. in a midnight tweet, he says -- we had fresher tires. and with a win and the championship on the line, you either take the gap or regret it forever. as for jeff gordon, he says keselowski has to pay the consequences, and he's going to race him the same way. george, sounds like this is not over. >> ryan, thanks very much. now to that deadly space plane explosion for virgin
7:09 am
galactic. ntsb investigators on the ground right now trying to find out what went wrong. as company chairman richard branson continues his quest to take tourists to space. david kerley tracking the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. the first big break this morning as to why spaceshiptwo broke apart. and why one of the pilots changed some settings apparently early. it's not the debris but video from inside the cockpit that shows the co-pilot, michael alsbury, who did not survive, unlocking the space plane's wings early. but then the feathers moved on their own. >> after it was unlocked, the feathers moved into the deployed position, and two seconds later, we saw disintegration. >> reporter: the ntsb says it's far too early to know whether this was the cause of the breakup. and investigators hope to learn more from the pilot, peter siebold. who survived and is said to be
7:10 am
alert and talking. >> i don't think we should point the finger just yet. it's an experimental flight. there are risks with that. >> reporter: still, virgin galactic is being criticized. several hundred people have signed up, including some of hollywood's elite -- pitt, jolie, perry, dicaprio. all for the feeling of weightlessness. and then gliding back to earth on those feathers. richard branson dismissed suggestions of pressure. >> i find it irresponsible that people can be saying things before the ntsb makes their comments. >> reporter: branson has offered to refund anybody that's put down a deposit for a flight. some passengers say they're not backing out. >> it's rocket science. it's not easy. we all kind of knew this could happen. >> reporter: now that feathering system is designed to slow down the spacecraft. but the craft was apparently still accelerating. richard branson said the engine did not explode. he had intended to start paid flights next year.
7:11 am
but now he won't say when that will happen until he knows exactly what happened and why this spacecraft blew apart. >> yeah they need that full investigation. let's go to amy with the other top stories. >> good morning, everyone. we begin with big savings at the pump. gas prices have dropped below $3 a gallon for the first time in nearly four years. overnight, aaa reported the national average dropped to $2.98 a gallon. drivers are now saving an estimated $250 million per day compared to over the summer when gas cost around $3.70 a gallon. a major setback for the president's strategy in syria. two of the main u.s.-backed rebel groups have now surrendered to al qaeda after being driven from their strongholds in northern syria. they also surrendered weapons including rockets and anti-tank missiles. a young woman who made global headlines has ended her battle with brain cancer. 29-year-old brittany maynard used the lethal drugs available
7:12 am
under oregon's death with dignity law. she was diagnosed with a tumor ten months ago. she and her husband then moved from their home in california because that state doesn't allow assisted suicide. and in chicago, daredevil nik wallenda has pulled off his latest stunt. shattering two world records in eight minutes. he walked a tightrope between two skyscrapers blindfolded, no net, no harness. he also crossed two towers on a 19-degree incline. the steepest tightrope walk ever. he walked faster than predicted because of that famous chicago wind blowing in his face. he may not have walked between skyscrapers, but pittsburgh steelers quarterback ben roethlisberger did something almost as impressive. he threw a record six touchdowns for the second week in a row. the steelers routed the ravens, 43-23. and another man with his share of nfl records, you might know him, will be honored tonight. a guy named michael strahan will
7:13 am
receive his hall of fame ring during halftime as the giants host the colts on espn's "monday night football." starting at 8:15. 100 former giants players will pay tribute to michael's career. michael, we salute you here on "good morning america" as well. and finally, love was definitely in the air for an engaged couple from indiana. they are frequent flyers who decided to tie the knot on a place where they feel most at home, on a southwest airlines flight. the bride danced down the not-so-wide aisle. a little tight squeeze to meet her groom. thanks to all of those frequent flyer miles, they had more than 1 million. they were able to invite 30 closest relatives and friends along for the ride. a lot of other people there, unexpected guests for the wedding. the officiant said if anyone can show just cause that this couple should not be legally joined, please press your flight attendant call button.
7:14 am
no one did, thankfully. no one did. >> that's creative. >> it's got to be a first. >> do we know where they were flying to? >> they were going to dallas love field. >> really? >> really. couldn't make that up. >> no, you couldn't. thank you, amy. now to a big day here in new york city. you're looking live at one world trade center. a major milestone as that building opens its doors this morning, the first tenants are moving into the tallest and most expensive building in the western hemisphere. and "good morning america" weekend anchor dan harris is there for us. good morning, dan. >> reporter: hey, robin, good morning. after many long, emotional, and at times excruciating years, one world trade center right behind me is finally open for business. and abc news got an exclusive first look from one of the top floors. time-lapsed video shows one world trade center blossoming. from a hole in the ground, to a foundation, and then floor by floor, 102 stories into the air and with that spire on top,
7:15 am
rising to a symbolic 1776 feet. and here it is. the view from the top floor. stunning in every direction. not only can you see straight up the magnificent island of manhattan. but just a few feet this way, you can cross the hudson river, you can see new jersey and beyond it the state of pennsylvania. this floor will be an observation deck opened to tourists. and operated by a company called legends. >> we brought it back. we built it even higher than it was before. >> reporter: while this observatory doesn't open until the spring, today, hundreds of employees of conde nast will move in and get to work. it has been a long road to get to this point. i remember vividly being at this spot in the days after 9/11. it's a thud in the stomach. >> my legs are shaking. >> reporter: the building is finally here. although there are of course safety concerns. this is still a tempting terror
7:16 am
target. this new building has a core made of concrete seven times stronger than the concrete you find in the sidewalk. and the elevator banks and stairwells are within that core. if the building is hit, people on the upper floors should be able to get out safely. >> this is a great tribute to our courage, perseverance, what we do as americans. >> reporter: when the observatory opens in the spring, tickets will run you $32. although it's free for 9/11 families and first responders. the space will also be open for things like weddings and bar mitzvahs. i suspect that will cost you more than $32. back to you guys. >> it is new york city. >> hey, dan, thank you very much. how about this with tom cruise? >> unbelievable. robin, good morning to you, and cruise accepting a mission that certainly seems impossible. the actor topping himself with the latest and greatest stunt ever. for the next installment of

"mission impossible." no stunt double? no problem. watch as hollywood's top action star, tom cruise, soars 5,000 feet in the air. clinging to the side of a plane. he's once again stunning us with his own stunts on the set of "mission impossible 5." look at him on the side of this airbus a-4005. well above the english countryside. and of course, handsomely dressed in a tailored suit. the 52-year-old has said he loves doing his own stunts. and impressively mastering a bit of free climbing. not to forget the motorcycle tricks in "night and day." he made those look easy. >> we trained a long time to be able to do this. each one of its little challenges. >> reporter: and after all that, the worst injury cruise's ever suffered from a career full of life-threatening stunts, he hurt his foot in this "jack reacher" scene after repeatedly kicking a fellow actor.
