first hoverboard since marty mcfly and "back to the future ii"? it was at the top of every kid's kish list 25 years ago. you see the rain drops there on the camera. can you believe it's been 25 years since "back to the future ii"? >> no, but hearing the music sends me back. >> science fiction may be turning into reality. >> comes back. >> thank you. we are remembering a legends in our business. ben bradlee, led the "washington post" for so many years. the driving force behind some of the biggest stories of the century. the stories that quicken your pulse. we're going to have much more ahead. >> he did have an impact.
7:02 am
he certainly did. but begin with the severe weather up and down the east coast. torrential rain, flooding, wind and right now. >> it's happening this morning. we have crossed the line from uncomfortable and annoying to potentially dangerous. flood advisories from boston and earlier new york city. under a low pressure system, and thunderstorms rolling over each other. from new jersey to d.c. that's going to move to the north and east. the hardest is in the next 48 hours, especially from coastal new england, up with through maine. but plenty of rain here. see some road closures and ponding. and hopefully nothing like this. this is west palm beach, florida. picking up more than 9 inches falling in just one day. and that tropical depression over mexico adds more moisture. and the start of the weekend for florida, having all of that information coming up in the
7:03 am
next nation's weather. >> whole lot coming this way. turn now to ebola in america. and a new scare, one passenger rushed to a hospital after landing in newark, showing some signs of the deadly disease. two in chicago as strict new rules take effect this morning. gio benitez is at newark international with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the concern is the passenger got off the plane at this terminal showing at least one symptom. now starting today, a major crackdown at u.s. airports. this morning, new ebola scares echoing from the tristate area to the heartland. a passenger believed to be liberian arriving on a united airlines plane in newark with fever symptoms. immediately rushed by ambulance to university medical center in newark. workers in masks surround the ambulance, later sealed as a possible biohazard. they are in quarantine. and in chicago, two passengers, one adult and one child were ill
7:04 am
on separate flights into o'hare. this as the united states government implements strict restrictions on travelers from seeiary ya lyonne, liberia and new guinea. they must enter the u.s. from one of just five major airports. 150 passengers a day travel to the u.s. from one of the three hot spots. 6% arrive at an airport other than the five designated. homeland security said they should contact the airlines for rebooking as needed. if health officials determine there is any risk at all, then the cdc will contact every passenger on that plane. >> thank you very much. now to the new concerns about home grown terrorists. the fbi investigating three teenage girls caught trying to make their way to syria to join muslim radicals. allegedly lured over the
7:05 am
internet. pierre thomas has the latest. >> reporter: good morning. this is another disturbing sign that radicals in syria have become quite effective at recruiting american young people, even teens. this morning in a denver muslim community where these three girls are from, shock and concern. >> my blood ran cold. if these young girls did make connections with someone, i'm very confident it was through the internet. >> reporter: the girls of sudanese and somali decent, only 15, 16 and 17 are not being identified because of their young age. sources tell abc news they were seduced by videos like this. >> advice that i have for the sisters is very important that they come. >> reporter: videos that call for violent jihad and hatred of the west. the girls were convinced to fly from doerch germany with plans to take them to turkey and syria to the middle of a bloody civil war. last friday the father of two of
7:06 am
the teens filed an urgent missing persons report. he later found their passports are were missing along with $2,000 in cash. they were stopped by authorities in germany and sent home. sources tell abz the fbi is now investigating whether they were recruited by a shadowy network of radicals overseas who may have funded the trip. >> another example of someone who's created a very slick, sophisticated package. coupled with money and adventure. >> reporter: this is the second case out of denver in recent months. a 19-year-old woman who was going to syria to marry a radical recently pleaded guilty to helping terrorists. she now knows it was a terrible mistake. >> she was led astray and now paying the price for those choices. >> reporter: now prosecutors face the difficult decision whether to prosecute. they must decide if they were
7:07 am
misguided children or potential radicals. >> thank you. and now to amy with the other top stories. good morning. another possible scandal for the secret service. some agents were pulled from white house duty to respond to a private dispute between a secret service employee and her neighbor nearly an hour away from the white house. president obama was home at least twice when agents were pulled which the report called problematic. the man armed with the knife who ran into the white house has been deem incompetent to stand trial following a mental health assessment. the official autopsy on ferguson, missouri, teenager appears to support the account by the police officer who shot him. the autopsy obtained by the st. louis post dispatch found brown was shot nine times, including once in the hand at close range.
7:08 am
which could indicate that he did not have his hands up and may have been reaching for officer darren wilson's gun. the autopsy also found brown had marijuana in his system. the government is expanding that massive recall of defective air bags that could explode and send pieces of metal flying through your car. more than 6 million vehicles are affected, up from 4.5 million. in warmer climates they are being urged to get them replaced immediately. it's honda, toyota, gm and ford among others. on yahoo has a complete list of the vehicles affected. and look at this scary scene on a pennsylvania highway, a woman caught on camera swerving between lines. two men behind her recording every move until she slams into that oncoming car. she is okay. one witness claims the driver had a phone in her hand. no word if charges will be filed. and just in time for the
7:09 am
upcoming holiday season, major airlines are raising ticket prices. rebecca jarvis has a key tip for travelers this morning. >> just as you're getting ready to book that trip over the river and through the woods, the airlines are now hiking fares. united, delta, u.s. airways, jett bleu and southwest all upping round trip tickets by $4. >> it may not sound like a lot, but on top of the fees, just another blow to customers. >> reporter: it's the fifth fare hike so far this year. but what makes this one infuriating for some travelers, it comes just as the airlines are reporting record earnings and falling fuel costs. if oil prices stay here, the airlines will save $8 billion over the next year. but those tickets to grandmother's house over thanksgiving, they're still getting more expensive. from chicago to dallas will now
7:10 am
cost you about $400. that's 4% more than last year. >> the key is to book now. after today, tickets will go up 5%. >> reporter: or for the cheapest seats, book those tickets for thanksgiving day. for "good morning america," rebecca jarvis, abc news, new york. >> great advice, thank you. and there was no contest during last night's world series opener. the giants took an early lead and never looked back. stunning the royals 7-1. but something off the field got our attention. and this could be a record. look at that. this royals fan walking to his seats sporting a pair of 47-inch moose antlers. that's because his favorite player is third baseman mike moosetakas. it helped, he had one of the four hits last night. the problem was that the royals only had four hits last night. >> i was wondering how you were
7:11 am
going to play that one. >> those are real? >> apparently so. >> wow. that's something. thanks. and breaking news in the mysterious disappearance of a pregnant ohio woman. police discovered her body and arrested her boyfriend. alex perez has the latest. >> reporter: good morning. so much unfolding the last few hours. authorities were saying -- the situation in this case, looking for her remains and they discovered them in the early overnight hours. a community in mourning as 22-year-old samantha greenlee's body found in a wooded area just a few hours ago, 15 miles from her home in columbus, ohio. three months pregnant when she disappeared. and now the father, her boyfriend, jacob fer rare row, seen here, arrested and charged with aggravated arson. he gave a full confession, leading them to her body.
7:12 am
she was last seen two weeks ago, heading to the home she shared with him after a waitressing shift. two days later, she missed a doctors appointment. then investigators discovered a raging fire in the apartment, destroying everything inside. he originally told police a dog kicked over a candle. but said he set the fire to cover up evidence. at a vigil last night, her mother and father were hopeful she would be found. >> she was a caring person. she would do stuff for others before she would think about herself. and it's not samantha. >> samantha would have contacted us by now. there's a reason why she's not contacting us. >> reporter: she was looking forward to thanksgiving and was so excited to become a mother. investigators still working to piece together many details here. family members, of course, still searching for answers, including a motive.
7:13 am
he is due in court tomorrow. >> so sad when we learned that. thank you. and now with the flu season fast approaching, a new report revealing that the nasal spray is more effective than a shot in protecting young children. dr. richard besser is here with more. so the spray, not the shot for young kids. >> yes. as a parent and pediatrician, i love this story. it means you can protect kids without the needle. kids 2 to 8, it turns out that the nasal spray, this is it, no needle, it is more effective. prevents 50% more than the shot. it's that much better. >> any child gebetween that agef 2 and 8 that should not get the spray? >> allergic to eggs, asthma, a history of wheezing. everyone above 6 months should get a flu vaccine, and you can
7:14 am
give this 2 to 49. >> some adults don't like the shot either. >> here's a choice for you. >> but to the age of 49. and even above that, seniors are really susceptible during flu season. and there's a higher dose for them? >> yes. and really good news. they're the group at highest risk of severe flu. there's now a high-dose flu vaccine that gives them higher protection. and many doctors, including myself, say that's the way to go. >> many of us were talking about, with the concerns about ebola, how would that affect the flu season? there's so many symptoms that are similar. >> body ache, headache, fever. they look the same. you want to stay out of the emergency room this winter. and getting a flu shot will help ensure -- or reduce the chances you're going to get an illness in that mess. you don't want to be there. protect yourself. >> thank you so much. and now we celebrate the life of ben bradlee.
7:15 am
the ground breaking editor of the "washington post" died tuesday. he wanted to get the story, get it right, and give no ground to the powerful. in news rooms, he's a legend. for reporting on history, and making it. >> in my naive way when i first came to this town, i didn't think presidents lied. >> reporter: veteran of world war ii, buddy of jfk. in 1968, ben bradley became the executive editor of the "washington post." for 29 years, the fearless, dashing and loved leader. fighting to publish the pentagon papers in 1981. >> we were going to publish material in which in our mind had the public had the right to know and did no damage to the united states. >> reporter: and year later with the story of a lifetime. bradlee backed and guided
7:16 am
woodward and bernstein, then unknown, with the water gate scandal. >> they have done an extraordinary job. on a roll, nobody else was touching them. >> reporter: in the movie version, he was channelled by jason robars. >> i can't do the reporting for the reporters. i have to trust them. >> reporter: in real life, it helped dismantel the nixen administration. >> i will resign the presidency tomorrow. >> reporter: remembering bradlee the night wildfire his death. here . >> here's an editor without politics. that guided him in his career, guided him in his life. >> we need more ben bradlees. >> reporter: he and his wife, quinn, were at the center of washington social life. she stayed by his side.
7:17 am
>> i don't think we have ever been as loving as we are now. >> reporter: when he received the medal of freedom last year, he was called a titan of journalism. a newsman forever. >> i miss the times when the story just plain consumes the readers. when people seem to talk about nothing else. but i miss the excitement of the stories that quicken your pulse. that's when a newspaper man can get on with the job he was born to do. not many of us were lucky enough to get that exhilarating opportunity again and again and again. he's a man so full of life and vital. and sally quinn cared for him so well in the final years. great love story. >> we are thinking of sally. and so ginger, more on the tropical disturbance. >> it's 9 in the gulf, could become hannah. and could add a lot of moisture
7:18 am
to south florida. haven't we seen rain out of western palm beach and miami? yes, we have. but we put on the water vapor imagery, the satellite to see how much moisture is in the air. why it's going to be dry for the southeast and why it's not going to make it up. that cold front and the stationary going to act like a fence to block the moisture. you have that. and washington state into oregon. right along the coast, pick up to 7 inches of rain. and comes along with 65 mile per hour gusts. pacific northwest, tonight, it's the worth. first, the rainy cities brought to you by walgreens.

7:21 am
two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. how to shed pounds this winter. there. no more drafts. finally.

committed a crime before. they have to balance the aggravating circumstances with the mitigating circumstances. what does that mean? they have to make a gut call on do they want to give jodi arias the death penalty? that's not an easy place for prosecutors to be. because they have to get all 12 of them to agree to sentence her to death. something that last jury did not do. >> i have never heard of a retrial on sentencing. >> only in two states where you can retry the death penalty phase much a case. arizona is one of those states. this is an unusual thing to do this. they didn't have to. i've said this publicly before. i think they should have and cut a deal to give her life in prison and end it. but the family of travis alexander wants that, and the prosecutor wants the new trial. in the end, it's up to the prosecutor to move forward. >> and this jury deciding one thing only, does she get the death penalty? >> that's it. and if they can't agree on

7:36 am
but it turns out most atm robberies happen between midnight and 4:00 a.m. and more likely to occur at walkup atms than drive throughs. watch what happens one night in virginia. a man runs up to a woman's window, pointing a gun. she gives him cash and speeds off. it can happen in broad daylight too. even behind the secure bank doors. in new york, a man stole 300 bucks from this woman at an atm. we turn to bank what's the first thing you have to do? >> go to a well-lit area, or an atm in a retail outlet. that's going to have a lot of traffic. >> reporter: experts say don't use any atms on corners. that's an easy hiding spot for a thief. don't wear flashy jewelry. that could tempt a crook. don't count your cash at the atm, wait until you're in private. and one you didn't think of --
