7:02 am
terms this thing is a beast. this is the live conditions in christiansburg, virginia, 35 miles south of roanoke. we could have taken any one of a number of pictures across the east coast. it's ugly out there. >> how will it look in 24 hours? of course, it's our top story because more than 88 million americans are in the path of this storm. at least 20 states from arkansas to new york are already covered by warnings and watches. >> with more than two feet expected in washington, d.c., a snow emergency going into effect there this morning. public schools are closed and government offices will shut down at noon. >> and flight cancellations already mounting. nearly 5,000 today and tomorrow. we've got this storm covered from all angles so let's start with dylan dryer in virginia this morning. dylan, good morning to you. >> hey, savannah. my marching orders yesterday were go found snow and, boy, have we found it. we're in southwestern virginia outside of roanoke. it started snowing at 5:00 this morning and it's accumulating quickly. up until last night the biggest
7:03 am
been rain, severe storms and patchy ice, but now the focus is the heavy snow and from now through saturday conditions are only going to get worse. overnight a possible tornado touched down near hattiesburg, mississippi, downing trees and power lines and destroying a mobile home. part of a monster storm system slamming the south and east. this morning 88 million people could be impacted by some form of nasty winter weather, that's americans. >> this winter storm is only going to get worse. >> reporter: all along the east coast from north carolina to new worst. this caravan of power crews drove from florida to north carolina preparing for up to half an inch of ice and the power outages almost certain to follow. >> our goal is to be underwhelmed. >> reporter: a state of emergency is already in effect in five states, maryland and d.c.'s kick in this morning. starting later today and through
7:04 am
area will be the winter storm capital of the nation, an anticipate ing two feet or more. it's reminiscent of the 2010 snow they called snowmageddon or snowpocalypse which paralyzed the city for days. this one is likely to be worse. >> earlier i had 18 to 24. i'm now going 20 to 30 inches of snow, plus it's going to take a long time for us to clean up from that. so our plan today is to make it back to washington, d.c. if the storm is moving at about 40 miles per hour and we can do about 41, maybe we'll get there before the snow does, but it's going to be a slow go on i-81. we're watching the time here to go 25 miles. it's already going to take about 40 minutes. it's going to be a rough ride today. hopefully most people just stay home. willie and savannah.
7:05 am

7:06 am
this region have already been cancelled. they are prepping for a major storm here. take a look at a it looked like inside grocery stars and hardware stores earlier yesterday. they have been scrambling to get their hands on anything they can. folks say they will hunker down and ride this storm out. it will right right into the weekend and everyone here trying to prepare as best as they can for a major storm anticipated to willie? >> taking it very seriously. thank you so much. >> let's turn to al. advertised. >> we have the caveat if the storm moves in any direction that will affect what we show you, but right now 1,200 miles worth of winter weather advisories, from northern louisiana all the way to new england, and we have blizzard warnings in effect stretching from washington, baltimore, dover, philadelphia, new york city. so we've got a severe situation starting to develop. we also have severe weather down through the southeast.
7:07 am
because of severe thunderstorms and isolated tornadoes, so we'll watch that as well. now, as we go into our accumulations, here's what we're looking for, because we've already seen snow and ice in memphis. 2 to 5 inches of snow expected. nashville, tennessee. you'll see it at 4 to 8 inches. lexington, kentucky, look for 8 to 14 inches of snow, and as we get closer to the coast with winds and snow we are going to be looking at quite a bit. washington an baltimore right now. we're calling for anywhere from 18 to 26 inches of snow. it begins at 4:00 this afternoon and wind gusts at 50 miles per hour, snowfall two to four inches per hour. in philadelphia and central new jersey we're looking for the snow starting around 11:00 and wind gusts to 40 miles per hour and snow of 12 to 18 inches. new york city, the surrounding area, long island. look for six to 12 inches.
7:08 am
wind gusts of 55 miles per hour and look at this, we're talking about a significant ice storm from knoxville, tennessee, raleigh. charlotte is the bullseye. we could see almost an inch of ice, and the power outage possibilities from charlotte to washington, d.c. are very likely because of ice, winds and rain and snow, so this is going to be a really dangerous storm as the hours move through. >> the ice and the winds scare me. thank you, al. >> breaking overnight now. an american college student arrested and detained in north korea. nbc's chief global correspondent bill neely following this story for us. bill, what's the latest. willie. another american arrested by the north koreans accusing him of a hostile act though they don't say what that is and entering the country in the guise of a tourist as they put it, but, quote, plotting to undermine the country's unity, and they say he was manipulated by the u.s.
7:09 am
they have named him as otto frederick warmw beir, we believe he's from cincinnati, went with a tour group in china and don't know where he's being held but it's almost certainly in the capital pyongyang and, of course, we don't know his side of the story. u.s. diplomats in south korea are working on that. we do know north korea is feeling the heat right now after its recent nuclear test with the u.s. and other weighinging up more sanctions, and in the past north korea has arrested foreigners and paraded them on tv admitting to some wrongdoing to try to win concessions or diplomatic room to negotiate. no sign of any tv appearance so far, but the timing and the harshness of this statement, this arrest is no coincidence. the north koreans may try to use this young man as a bargaining chip. savannah, will. >> i we know previously
7:10 am

7:14 am
>> reporter: echoing how she tried to defeat barack obama in 2008. >> you are not going to wave a magic wand and have the special interests disappear! >> i wish that we could elect a democratic bhopt could wave a magic wand. >> i'm not interested in ideas that sound good on paper but will never make it in the real world. >> reporter: and she's slamming sanders as being naive on foreign policy. >> he suggested we invite iranian troops into syria. that is like asking the arsonist to be the firefighter. >> reporter: as sanders crisscrossed new hampshire, he's taking advantage of his momentum, releasing a new ad aimed at inspiring young voters in iowa set to "simon and garfunkel's." "america." for people in iowa the choice is anything but clear. >> still a week, a lot of time for candidates to bring up the issues i'm passionate about, say things that i may or may not
