>> we're talking about the grinch here who literally stole christmas. >> why this is happening more than ever and how to make sure you get your holiday delivery. ♪ and is this the world's saddest christmas tree? the people in one american city complaining about their spindly spruce. >> it just reminds me of charlie brown. >> now the mayor under pressure to produce a yuletide upgrade. >> hey, good morning, everybody. let's get straight to our top story. the weather whiplash in much of america. >> but nowhere is the change more dramatic than in hard-hit buffalo, new york, where after days of fierce and fatal snowfall, they are now looking at a whole different kind of problem, a big warm-up, which will melt all that snow and produce potentially dangerous and devastating flooding. >> as of right now, though, that massive snowpack is very much in

place, which poses a giant logistical problem for the hometown nfl team, the buffalo bills, who have had to move their game. some of the players even hitching rides to the airport on snowmobiles. you can see it right there. meteorologist rob marciano is covering all of this from ralph wilson stadium. rob, good morning to you, sir. >> good morning, dan. we are about ten degrees warmer today than we were yesterday so some melting of the snow but as you can see behind me there's just way too much in ralph wilson stadium to have a football game being played today and moved it tomorrow. i guess it would help if there was a roof on that but that's been a big problem because roofs have been pushed to the limit and many have failed. you're looking at 1 of nearly 30 roof collapses just south of buffalo, new york, this week under the weight of nearly 80 inches of snow, and as the rain begins to fall, residents fear flooding and more collapses on the way. take a look. the weight of the snow cracking glass and window panes.

[ sirens ] >> reporter: this is one of the few roads in south buffalo that is clear. main reason, it's the way to the hospital. hundreds of volunteers stepping up in the city of good neighbors armed with snow shovels. stronger than the guys of buffalo. right? still snowed out of their home stadium the buffalo bills will play their not so home game in detroit. some of the players so snowed in, they were hitching rides on snowmobiles to make the
8:04 am
flight. as the icy weather sets in highways becoming dangerously slick an riddled with mangled cars from michigan to pennsylvania. even runways so slick from ice this delta flight to detroit skidding into a ditch on landing. no one was hurt. we did have a brief period of freezing rain in buffalo yesterday but have since warmed and rain overnight and this parking lot has puddles in it and more puddles to come. our flood watches have been now upgraded to flood warnings, a number of creeks and tributaries will go into flood stage in the next 24 hours, that is going to be a huge issue as all of this snow continues to melt. we'll see temperatures warm dramatically. take a look at this map into the 60s leer across western new york tomorrow and 10 to 15 degrees above average and above where we are today. 70s and 80s elsewhere. big warm-up. paula. >> rob, those folks not getting a break. thank you. we'll check in with you a little bit later. and now to ferguson, missouri. the country is on edge awaiting a decision from the grand jury. they are deciding whether to charge a white police officer in

8:06 am
triundis sleet says her beauty salon sat nearly empty since august whe protesters here began demanding officer darren wilson be charged for the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager michael brown. >> people are scared to come. >> reporter: over the weekend authorities putting up barricades outside the st. louis county justice center where the grand jury has been meeting since august 20th. nine white, three black, seven men, five women reflecting the racial makeup of the county will need nine votes to indict wilson on murder or manslaughter charges. prosecutors have said due to the unique nature and high profile of the case jurors have had three months of complete access to evidence and witnesses with any connection to the investigation including testimony from officer wilson himself in september and dr. michael baden, the forensic pathologist asked by the brown family to perform an independent autopsy. >> the d.a. is trying to present a case that if there is no indictment, they can say, look, it was them. >> reporter: prosecutors insisting on transparency hoping
8:07 am
to eliminate any doubts when the grand jury finally reaches a decision. and as we await that grand jury decision, the st. louis county police department says their officers have switched over to 12-hour shifts hoping to be ready to deal with anything should it come up. dan. >> everyone trying to get ready for this decision. alex perez on the ground, thank you. let's bring in abc news chief anchor, george stephanopoulos who talked to president obama about the situation in ferguson in an exclusive interview that will air in full later this morning on "this week." good morning, sir. >> hi, dan. >> so when you talked to him, he called for calm. we know that but i guess i'm trying to get a sense from you of how worried they are behind the scenes about this and what, if anything, the administration can do to stop violence. >> they've been worried for quite a while. that's why you've seen the attorney general talk about the situation as well and talk to the governor, jay nixon and the fbi putting out a report warning of violence around the country in the wake of this but they don't know a whole lot more about what's going on inside the grand jury than anyone else. the president is considering whether to go there after the fact depending on what unfolds
8:08 am
on the ground, but they're doing everything they can now just to urge calm. >> so there may be a presidential visit at some point. let me switch gears and talk to you about hillary clinton because i know you asked the president about what his working relationship may be with hillary assuming she runs for president. he didn't quite confirm she is running but he did talk about their relationship. >> oh, yeah, and he talked about how he expected to work with hillary or any democratic candidate going forward although certainly does seem she's the -- you know, going full steam ahead towards a run right now. one of the most interesting things he said is that he understands how people will be looking for what he called a fresh new car smell the next time around but also he in a way gave his blessing to hillary or any democrat, you know, to create some distance from him, to bang him around if they need to. he knows that may be necessary for any democratic candidate, but he also said, and this is very important to him, it is very important to him to try to get a democrat to succeed him and lock in what he thinks are the gains of his two terms.
8:09 am
>> right, so he's willing to take some dings to his ego in order to secure his legacy. >> exactly. >> george, thank you very much. we should remind you that george has a big show. you can see all of his wide-ranging and exclusive interview with president obama and they will, of course, talk about the president's controversial immigration initiative coming up later this morning on "this week" right here on abc. george, thank you. >> thanks, dan. >> we'll be watching. we move to the crisis on campus after a very disturbing sexual assault allegation at one of america's most prominent colleges, the university of virginia. the school is now cracking down on all uva fraternities after an outcry that they failed to respond strongly enough in the first place, and abc's bazi kanani is right there. good morning, bazi. >> reporter: good morning, paula. a quieter weekend here fraternity row, all of the university of virginia's fraternities suspend as the president calls for a criminal investigation and serious change to protect students. overnight protesters in place of partyers at the university of

8:15 am
linzie, i have a couple of ideas. >> good morning, paula. 'tis the season for shopping online and shipping gifts straight to your door. but for scrooges it's also the season for stealingle it's not even thanksgiving yet and these thieves are already hard at eck it out. these videos captured on home security cameras across the country show grinches trying to ruin your holiday. >> the worst thing you can do is let a package sit out all day and night because you never know when a would-be thief might do their own christmas shopping off your front porch. >> reporter: watch as this woman walks onto this front porch near detroit late wednesday and boldly snatches a fedex package. it's happening in broad daylight too. this man walking onto a porch in houston earlier this month. a cigarette in his mouth as he makes off with a large box. >> they prey upon, you know, watching that delivery person, all they have to do is see the truck pull up and they know there's going to be a package somewhere. >> reporter: in tennessee this woman approaches a front door,

8:17 am
if possible, have items sent to your work and if you're sending a package to someone, pay that extra money to have a delivery that requires a signature. it takes all the convenience out of it, bah humbug. >> it does. but still. >> how brazen of that thief to carry his little child. >> i know. what kind example for the kid. it's ridiculous. absolutely ridiculous. >> a bad one. thank you. >> linzie, thank you. we'll move to a christmas story of a less menacing but slightly more pathetic variety. here's the question, is this right here the saddest christmas tree in the united states of america? perhaps even the world. many people in reading, pennsylvania, say emphatically, yes. so what are they going to do about it? abc's rachel smith who is in for sara haines this weekend is on the story. good morning. >> good morning. the saddest? that poor thing. but it seems like a scene from the holiday classic "a charlie brown christmas" playing out in real life. residents in a pennsylvania community outraged over the town's christmas tree. ♪ >> i'll take this tree home and decorate it. >> reporter: when it comes to this tree, the town of reading,

8:19 am
hoping for a redo next weekend actually, and the town's sprucier spruce in all will cost them around $5,000. they've already raised a thousand but in all $5,000. it's like a costly spruce. >> charlie brown might donate a little bit of money. >> i mean i think the lighting just needed a little help with the lighting, you know. >> a lot of help. >> the spirit of christmas, not necessarily the tree. maybe we should all rewatch charlie brown. right? >> very positive. i think rob marciano is in the spirit of the season. he's surrounded by a lot of snow for certain right now outside of buffalo. >> yeah, how can you not be? right, although temperatures are in the 40s right now. went from, you know, you have that snow to get you in the spirit then you got that rain afterwards and it's a little bit yucky for a lack of a better word and for a lot of people we've been reporting in buffalo it's just a downright nightmare. all right, one of the reasons it's warming up here today is because we have this very strong system that is causing severe weather across parts of the south.
8:20 am
take a look at this out of weimar, texas. yesterday severe storms there rolling through. thankfully no tornadoes but heavy, heavy rainfall. hydroplaning on some of the roadways there, a number of car accidents and in austin they got an inch of rain and in 15 minutes and there were water rescues in that area. all right. the severe weather threat today pushes off to the east. so now we're looking at tallahassee, the florida panhandle to be under the gun and tap gulf of mexico moisture as well. anywhere from new orleans to savannah up through wilmington is where the threat for severe weather, maybe a few tornadoes and certainly some flash flooding because there's going to be a lot of moisture with this over 3 inches of rainfall potentially across parts of southeast. santa ana winds blowing and fire danger high. some rain across the
