7:02 am
parking lot in warner robins, georgia, which is about 100 miles south of atlanta and you can also hear those storm sirens. this weather on the move and there are some big and unpleasant changes, as well, in store for the northeast. and rob is tracking it all for us this morning. hi, rob. >> hi, paula. it's been a large lumbering system taking its sweet time getting across the country, and now the tail end of it in florida. we've got a severe weather watch box that includes jacksonville, gainesville, orlando and daytona so severe weather likely here. this after an entire week really of severe weather across the country. overnight, more tornadoes and torrential rain creating a path of destruction. this dangerous funnel cloud whipping across georgia. >> it's coming this way. >> for the third straight day, the system inundating much of the southern states. roads opening up in alabama. emergency crews rushing to rescue three men clinging to a log after their canoes overturned in storm-charged waters. 19 reported tornadoes including this ef-1 in twiggs county, georgia. >> it's terrible.
7:03 am
you didn't know there was a house here with the trees on top. >> it was scary. i thought we were going to get blowed away. >> reporter: 90-mile-an-hour winds sending trees into homes. >> it came falling down. i was about to go to sleep. >> reporter: the powerful storm even credited for washing away a bridge leading to a massive train derailment. and up north winter not letting go. an april arctic blast dropping snow and ice across the great lakes. let's talk about that april winter weather up north. we have two fast-moving clipper systems going to bring snow and cold air and high winds. high wind watches out. look at these. this afternoon in chicago, 38 miles an hour. high wind advisory for indianapolis, 44 mile an hour and then that shield of wind gusts, d.c., new york, high wind warnings tomorrow. 50-mile-an-hour wind gusts and probably see some tree limbs down and some power outages with this, as well. and another system on top of that coming in sunday night into monday. there's some cold air with this,
7:04 am
with these winds and temperature near the freezing mark. these are the windchills tomorrow morning. 20 in chicago. 16 -- 10 in detroit. going to feel like 5 degrees in buffalo and there is a snow component to this, as well. we'll talk more about that in just a few minutes. >> it feels like we're regressing. i thought we just -- isn't it spring, rob? >> it was a mild winter so we're paying the price. >> that's true. okay, we'll check in with you a little bit later. we want to turn to the increasingly bitter fight for the white house. front-runner donald trump trailing in the latest polls in wisconsin. hillary clinton and bernie sanders, meantime, practically neck and neck. they're campaigning hard this weekend to make up ground before tuesday's pivotal vote, and abc's devin dwyer is in the thick of it in milwaukee with the very latest. good morning, devin. >> reporter: good morning, paula. donald trump has had one of the roughest weeks of his campaign. he trails in the polls here in wisconsin offering hope to those republicans looking to stop trump. after a rocky week for his campaign, donald trump is calling in reinforcements. >> i thank god that donald trump
7:05 am
gets it. >> reporter: conservative firebrand sarah palin joins trump today on the stump in wisconsin. tuesday's primary a major test for trump whose chances of clinching the nomination outright could be getting slim. >> to date our campaign has beaten donald, not once, not twice, not three times, but in ten states all across this country. >> reporter: ted cruz leads trump in wisconsin by double digits in the latest poll. even president obama taking a swipe at trump for saying japan and south korea should get nuclear weapons. >> the person who made the statements doesn't know much about foreign policy or nuclear policy or the korean peninsula or the world generally. >> reporter: cruz is so confident, he's taking a detour today to north dakota, courting critical free agent delegates that could help him block the nomination from trump. for the democrats, april fools was no laughing matter. >> secretary clinton owes us an apology. >> reporter: bernie sanders
7:06 am
doubling down on the charge that hillary clinton accepts support from people in the oil and gas industry. and accusations that's getting under clinton's skin. >> i am so sick of the sanders campaign lying about me. i'm sick of it. >> reporter: the clinton campaign refuses to apologize calling sanders' attack desperate and misleading. both campaigns have accepted contributions from individuals who work in the oil and gas industry, clinton more than sanders. sanders has won six of the last seven contests against clinton. they're neck and neck here in wisconsin. dan. >> the stakes couldn't be higher. devin, thank you. for more on all of this, let's bring in abc news political analyst matthew dowd who is in austin, texas, this morning. matthew, good morning. let's start with the republicans. how important is wisconsin for the republican race? >> i think it's greatly important. if you take a look at if ted cruz wins, this race goes in a fundamental different direction. i think -- to quote robert frost two roads diverged in wisconsin and we are about to take the one less traveled by, and the one less traveled by is if ted cruz
7:07 am
wins wisconsin, we are likely, very likely to be in a contested convention situation in cleveland. >> full employment act for political analysts like you. so how bad a week was this for donald trump and could it hurt him beyond wisconsin? >> yes, i think this was his worst week of the campaign. he took incoming attacks. he made a series of missteps which is most of the problem that donald trump has, and it's not the anti-trump folks that have hurt donald trump. it's donald trump that has hurt donald trump and i think it's capped him going forward. it's made it very difficult to unite the party. he may still and he is likely to still win the nomination at a convention, but it's made it very hard to unite the republican party going into a general election. >> a lot of people upset about his comments about abortion and also about heidi cruz. let's talk about the stakes on the democratic side. what would a sanders win in wisconsin mean for the chances of him capturing this nomination? >> well, dan, sanders has won five of the last six contests, so a wisconsin win which i think
7:08 am
is likely at this point is going to put him on a trajectory where it is a possibility he could win more pledge delegates than hillary clinton which would be an amazing situation in this and then i think he makes an argument to the super delegates if that happens to say you can't give this nomination to somebody who lost the delegate process in the states. so i think a wisconsin win for bernie sanders changes the nature of the race which allows him to make an argument to all those democratic officials that he should be the nominee instead of hillary clinton. >> stakes so high on both sides. our thanks to a robert frost quoting matthew dowd on a saturday morning. thank you, matt. >> thanks. all right, thanks, dan. and now to a story that i guarantee is probably going to make your skin crawl. thousands of bees on the attack in arizona. more than a dozen people were victimized before these bees were finally chased away. this video is alarming. probably unlike anything you've ever seen before, and abc's marci gonzalez has the story for us this morning. hi, marci. >> reporter: hi, paula. an absolutely terrifying ordeal
7:09 am
for these people. many of them were in a mosque when the bees suddenly flew inside and started stinging. the swarm was so big, roads in the area had to be shut down until crews could get the dangerous problem under control. >> they're swarming all in there. >> reporter: chaos in arizona when 20,000 bees sent worshippers running through the streets desperately swatting away an attacking swarm outside of this phoenix morph. >> there was a number of people there were at this church. there's people at a bus stop. there's people walking, so we're going to have a whole bunch of them. >> reporter: more than a dozen people in the area stung by the bees after they started swarming. the dangerous pests even flying into the building. >> i could see a bunch of them in that room where that door was open. >> they just started to attack us then i run away. >> reporter: firefighters rushing to the scene keeping the enraged bees at bay by spraying the area down with a special foam that helps calm the insects. victims covering up with blankets and jackets as they
7:10 am
tried to escape the angry swarm. >> it was just crazy. they were blocking the whole street just because of bees. >> i saw people running everywhere. some people even fell in the grass over there and got up and started running. >> reporter: officials confirming at least 15 people were stung during the attack. one person taken to the hospital in stable condition. >> it was a very bad -- some people get hard pain but all of us right now, we are good actually. >> reporter: then just minutes later, more bees seen here swarming a few miles south of the first attack. crews spraying that area with foam, as well. and there were no injuries reported in that incident, again, only one person hospitalized from that first attack. of course, it could have been so much worse. government statistics show that more than 3% of adults have severe allergic reactions to stings from bees and other insects that, of course, can be deadly. >> absolutely. anaphalactic shock. horrifying video. >> i've never seen anything like that before he believes -- except in the movies.
7:11 am
ron, we see you every weekend. >> fairly regularly. >> we want to see you more is what i wanted to say. >> okay. that's what you're getting at. >> lost in translation. >> okay, well, good morning to you, paula and dan. robert, good morning to you. good morning, everyone. we begin with authorities in virginia disclosing that the former felon who fatally shot a state trooper at a bus station in that state was carrying an arsenal of 143 rounds of ammunition. the officer, 37-year-old chad dermyer, had been taking part in a training mission at the bus station, greyhound bus station when the suspect by the name of james brown allegedly opened fire. brown had previously served prison time for using a firearm in a crime, a drug charge and a domestic abuse conviction. officers nearby returned fire killing that gunman, james brown. and u.s. officials say a drone strike in somalia has killed a key leader of the terror group there, al shabab. hassan ali dhoore and two others were said to have been killed in the attack which occurred in southern somalia. officials say dhoore, who was a member of al qaeda, played a direct role in
7:12 am
two attacks in the somali capital mogadishu more than a year ago that killed three americans. pentagon officials say they believe dhoore was plotting more attacks against americans. and new developments in the o.j. simpson murder case. authorities now say forensic testing confirms that the knife discovered on simpson's brentwood, los angeles, estate more than a decade ago was not the weapon used to kill nicole brown simpson and ron goldman back in 1994. the lapd recovered the knife last month from a retired police officer. they say the case is officially still open. and it's been a long time coming, but the city of philadelphia is now officially apologizing for a racist incident aimed at jackie robinson back when he played in that city in 1947. the tirade of verbal abuse he was subjected to and members of the phillies was depicted in the 2013 movie "42." the philadelphia city council yesterday passing a resolution making april 15th a day of honor for jackie robinson's achievements and to apologize to him. that's the date in 1947 robinson
7:13 am
became the first african-american player in major league baseball playing, of course, for the brooklyn dodgers. and say it ain't so, steph curry and the golden state warriors lost a home game. >> no. >> as dan would say, incredible, unbelievable. >> what? >> the warriors fell to the boston celtics, maybe that's dan's team, 109-106 ending their 54-game winning streak at home. it's the warriors' first loss since january 2015. they will now have to win five of their final six games to break the all-time record for wins set by the chicago bulls with michael jordan back in 1995/'96. and finally you know the expression bull session? you know that expression? >> yes. >> wall street. >> some people don't. no? got a different kind of bull. >> bull what? what are we talking about? >> not a bull market either. some college students in new york city had quite the bull session. a 2,000-pound bull jumping off a truck headed to the slaughterhouse. good idea to get off that truck and wandering onto the campus of new york college in queens, new york.
7:14 am
police were able to wrangle the animal and even got some celebrity assistance in dealing with it. former "daily show" host jon stewart and his wife took the animal to an upstate sanctuary or they said they did. we don't know how stewart got involved, but he is a well-known animal advocate, so i think the bull is probably safe and not going to be slaughtered. >> that's an amazing escape. >> yeah, right. >> good on jon stewart for taking him in. >> yeah, exactly. >> absolutely. >> jon just took the bull by the horns right there, didn't he? >> ooh. >> nice. >> ladies and gentlemen, the views of paula faris do not necessarily reflect the views of abc news. >> what, am i little crazy this morning? crazy saturday morning. speaking of crazy, things are getting crazy, we're getting down to the nitty-gritty in the college basketball championship, of course. the final four will face off tonight, and abc's tony reali breaking down all the matchups for us this morning. hi, tony. >> let's go around those horns, paula, and, good morning. >> ba-dum-dum. >> 60 games or so over the last two weeks. we still don't know who the best team in the country is. tonight we're going to get a step closer.
7:15 am
villanova and oklahoma, north carolina and syracuse. four teams, two huge games, and tonight two will march on and two will go home. the most unlikely team still in the dance, that would be the tenth seeded syracuse orangemen. now all they have to do is beat the top seeded north carolina tar heels. >> up top. >> this is our 19th final four. if we play really, really well and get lucky, perhaps they'll let us stay around and play the next day. >> it's been a rough year for the orangemen. head coach jim boeheim was suspended after being cited for various ncaa violations. >> there's a bunch of good teams at the top and carolina is definitely one of them. so you just -- you get excited for games like these. >> reporter: as for the night's other matchup, villanova and oklahoma. villanova hasn't won a national championship since ronald reagan was president.
7:16 am
and even though wildcats coach jay wright has taken the team far before, he is still feeling the heat. >> we never really felt the pressure but you can definitely feel it now. >> reporter: ryan arcidiacono, a lifelong wildcats fan, has his eyes on cutting down the nets monday night in houston. >> we'd love to bring a championship home to philly but we have to get past oklahoma first. >> buddy hield. >> reporter: but sharpshooting oklahoma guard, buddy hield, has a dream of his own willing the oklahoma sooners to their first national championship. final four weekend, always a time when great players become legends and those names live forever. buddy hield, full name, chavano rainier hield from the bahamas and ryan arcidiacono. say it with me. let me hear the music. >> arcidiacono. >> arcidiacono. >> in italian it means television host with a beautiful tie, so that's very good for dan. they're hoping to be legends tonight. >> speaking of television hosts, did anybody see that tony made a
7:17 am
cameo on "world news tonight" last night? i was watching and cecilia vega was doing her report with david muir, and look who shows up behind her. actually i took my camera out at home and i recorded a close-up. there you have it. you could see tony reali wearing headphones and sunglasses, coming in out of the corner and walking through. and then look at this, looks right at the camera. >> yeah, well, you know -- >> you have no recollection. >> i have embarrassed myself on tv many times. this may be the most embarrassing. what you didn't see, i was carrying two pails of paint like travolta in "saturday night fever." >> you had a brown paper bag in your hand. i saw it. >> hey, congratulations, you became that guy. >> thanks for the call-out. that was very nice. >> we love you, tony. we love you. >> let's check the weather with rob. >> i hope you took the sunglasses off when you got inside. in style, my friend, no doubt about that. if you're skiing out west this weekend, you're styling too. april. but a great time to -- this was taken just a day or two ago in breckenridge, colorado. they got seven inches of fresh. you can get fresh and then you can get beautiful sunshine. i think this weekend will be the

i am so strong that i could be in a rival group's neighborhood and videotape it. >> reporter: but his actions might have been too bold. fields suffering multiple gunshot wounds. >> no, no, no. oh, my god. i don't believe this. >> reporter: this incident comes at a time when chicago's violent crime rate continues to soar. chicago police reporting shootings across the city have risen 88% from a year ago with more than 675 taking place in 2016 so far. authorities are hoping that the shocking video of this shooting will lead them to the gunman. and fields is still in critical condition in the hospital. police are looking into whether this shooting was gang related. >> tough days for chicago right now. eva, thank you. >> hard video to watch. >> indeed. let's check the forecast once again and get it back over to rob. hey, rob. >> hey, dan. a windy day in chicago and followed by some cold air, as well. check out some of these numbers as far as actual temperatures, a roller coaster. we start in the 50s today and
