let's take a live look at royal caribbean's "anthem of the seas." there it is docked safely in new jersey. they had four scary days on the water. those hurricane-force winds and passengers from that ship are standing by right now. robin will talk to them live. >> i think they kissed the ground when they got back here. also have a big morn ing ahead. lara is live in hollywood. a huge "scandal" event taking us behind the scenes and those empty chairs. no, no, wait till you see who's coming to visit us. she won't be by her lonesome much longer. >> told her where the camera is. arctic blast moving east. temperatures 20 degrees below normal. for many it's about to get worse. more than 50 million could face below freezes and to rob marciano for that. >> good morning, george. temperatures below freezing. come this weekend will drop another 20 degrees. the polar vertex will release a
7:02 am
we'll be in the deep freeze. this picture out of i-90 east of cleveland. the lake-effect snow machine in erie and ontario. south of buffalo and fulton, new york, another 10 to 12 inches likely. then here we go with temperatures. actual morning temperatures and then we push that cold air further to the south and chicago tomorrow morning, 3 degrees, minus 10 and on sunday morning, if we hit zero degrees in new york city, george and robin, that will be the first time the coldest night, i should say, since 1994. >> whoo. >> bundle up. >> i'll sleep in. >> rob, thank you. now to breaking news in that oregon standoff. the four remaining occupiers may turn themselves in and end their more than month-long protest. the fbi surrounding them right now and abc's neal karlinsky is in bend, oregon, with the latest. good morning, neal. >> reporter: robin, good morning. a bizarre and fluid scene out here. the fbi moved in overnight and the standoff appeared to be
7:03 am
inside who are still holed up in there called out that they feared a shoot-out was imminent. >> you're gonna come up with your hands up. >> no, we're not. >> reporter: overnight chaos at the standoff as the fbi move in on the final four hold-outs now 40 days into an occupation of this federal wildlife refuge. >> be reasonable. >> reporter: the hold-outs live streaming a phone call from inside. in the background the fbi can be heard telling them to surrender as the four claim they fear the fbi will murder them. >> do the right thing all right. >> what the right thing is to kill us? >> reporter: they posted these defiant videos on youtube. >> tired of you guys. telling us what we can and can't do. >> reporter: showing them lashing out at the fbi and doing doughnuts in a government vehicle. >> yeah. >> reporter: just last month the standoff's leaders were arrested during a traffic stop during which group spokesman lavoy finicum was shot and killed.
7:04 am
was reaching for a gun after briefly fleeing. and this morning cliven bundy, the 748-year-old father of the oregon occupation leaders who sparked his own fight with the federal government over a cattle grazing right in 2014 also now behind bars, taken into custody by the fbi while flying in to support the remaining oregon hold-outs overnight. the four inside say they will drop their guns and surrender. later this morning when a nevada legislator and supporter of theirs shows up on the scene but they have changed their minds before, though, this time the fbi's patience appears to be wearing very thin, george. >> yeah, very dangerous situation. okay, neal, thanks very much. we move to the race for the white house. "your voice, your vote," and the democrats will face off tonight. let's take a look at the stage in wisconsin set for their first debate since new hampshire. the big question now, will hillary clinton try something new after bernie sanders' sweeping win? the latest.
7:05 am
>> reporter: george, good morning to you. bernie sanders didn't just win in new hampshire, it was one of the largest margins of victory since jfk won there in 1960. now, hillary clinton's team is rethinking the strategy and we could see it unfold tonight on that debate stage. as both sides prepare to come face-to-face at tonight's debate, for the first time since bernie sanders' big new hampshire victory, this morning, worry inside camp clinton. sources telling abc news hillary clinton's top advisers are now calling supporters from big donors to backers in congress trying to ease concerns. >> we've learned it's not whether you get knocked down that matters, it's whether you get back up. >> reporter: the strategy now shift the focus to south carolina and nevada, the hope that clinton support among african-american and latino voters can help propel her to the nomination. the 22-point loss in new
7:06 am
embarrassing than her camp ever expected. so big even sanders was shocked. you sound like you're surprised by the outcome yourself? >> we thought we'd win but not by that large a vote. >> reporter: when i asked about the uphill fight ahead, this stark admission. if the election were tomorrow do you think you could win south carolina and nevada? >> no. fortunately for us, the election is not tomorrow. >> reporter: and about those recent attacks from bill clinton. has he gone below the belt. >> i think so. look, i know he's going to be out there defending his wife. trust me, my wife will be out there defending me. >> reporter: but the battle now for minority voters. sanders' first stop after his big win, harlem where he ate soul food and met with al sharpton. and listen to this, that new for bernie sanders. in the 18 hours after the polls closed there, sanders raised more than $5 million shattering the campaign's previous record for money raised in less than a day. guys, and it is mostly from
7:07 am
>> that's what's been fueling him all along. high stakes tonight in this debate. clinton team telling you anything about their strategy? >> you know, it's funny, george. they won't. they don't want to put their playbook out. in the past they've given us nuggets here and there. we expect issues affecting minority communities to be a big one. that's the battleground and where bernie sanders is especially vulnerable watching for hillary clinton to go on the attack tonight and bernie sanders told me yesterday that he is ready for it. >> okay, cecilia, thanks very much. >> very important tonight. thank you, cecilia. now to the republican race, the field down to six candidates this morning after chris christie and carly fiorina announced they are dropping out. now, all eyes on south carolina where the next primary is about to take place. abc's jon karl is there for us in clemson, south carolina. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. fresh off his big win in new hampshire, donald trump took a victory lap here in south carolina last night, he's hoping a win here would make him unstoppable. the republican candidates are
7:08 am
nomination to the south this morning. rallying supporters overnight, donald trump said a south carolina win would clear his path to the republican nomination. >> we win here, we're going to run the table. after winning so big in new hampshire. all of these characters are going to give it up. >> reporter: trump once again trained his fire on jeb bush who is hoping a strong south carolina showing can save his campaign. >> you have a guy like bush who has his big fund -- it's terrible. i'll be honest, the last thing we need is another bush. that i can tell you. >> reporter: and while ted cruz, the winner of the iowa caucuses couldn't repeat that performance in new hampshire, he says he won't be deterred by trump's victory. >> one of the most important conclusions coming out of these first two states is that the only candidate who can beat donald trump is me. >> reporter: meanwhile, marco rubio is trying to get back on track after his disappointing fifth place finish in new
7:09 am
we caught up with rubio as he headed to south carolina. he says he's willing to take on the gop front-runner. are you going to go after donald trump? >> it's no longer in my opinion enough to say the great things we're going to do but you won't tell us how you're going to do them. >> reporter: and john kasich after his surprise second place finish in new hampshire drew an overflow crowd in south carolina. kasich has relied on a positive campaign but says he is ready to hit back at his rivals. >> don't mess with me, okay. so i'm not going to be a pin cushion for a marshmallow but i'm also not going to spend my time trying to trash other people. >> reporter: with chris christie and carly fiorina out, that republican field is a lot smaller as you remember, robin, at one point we had 17 candidates. now just 6 but that means donald trump and the anti-trump candidates down to five. >> that is true. but what is the situation right now? how does the race stand right
7:10 am
>> reporter: well, we've had no reliable polling since a week before the iowa caucuses. but donald trump had led every poll here in south carolina going all the way back to october. i don't imagine that's changed very much. >> probably not. thank you. >> all the polls in new hampshire, as well. let's get more from our political analyst matthew dowd. matthew, very different terrain from iowa and manchester, new hampshire and that has vicious politics. >> it gets nasty and negative fast. it has aspects of iowa and new hampshire. first it's an open primary. that means democrat, independents and republicans can vote in it like new hampshire. but it also has the highest personal of evangelicals similar to iowa but one of the differences in the evangelicals in south carolina is they're not driven to the polls by social issues but establishment conservative issues and so when you look at all the panorama of this and also is, south carolina is going to have twice as many liberal and moderate voters as iowa, so when you look at it,
7:11 am
trump, when you go into south carolina. >> and he probably has the lead going in. let's talk about the democrats. that debate tonight. a lot of commentary swirling around hillary clinton's debate strategy. does she go very, very positive, put forward a vision, some people said she hasn't done that or is now the time to really try to take down bernie sanders? >> well, listen, george, she's been wounded and she's bleeding so the first thing she needs to do is apply a tourniquet and stopping bleeding so she doesn't lose nevada the next state up. what i would do if i were her prosecute the case directly against bernie sanders and ignore the moderators and basically say in a calm, cool, strong way prosecute the case saying the only person on this stage that can get anything done is me. your ideas are great. they're aspirational but the only thing that get those done would be me. prosecute the case. >> we'll be watching tonight. matthew dowd, thanks very much. >> thank you. now to new developments overnight in ferguson, missouri, the federal government announcing it's suing the city trying to force it to overhaul
7:12 am
which has repeatedly been accused of racial discrimination. abc's pierre thomas is in washington with that story for us. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. in a blunt press conference the attorney general accused the city of ferguson of stonewalling attempts to right the wrongs of a police department she flatly described as racially biased. >> all: this is what democracy looks like. >> reporter: this morning the justice department firmly agreeing with african-american residents of ferguson saying their complaints of unfair and racially biased police enforce enforcement are in fact true. >> the ferguson police department's violations in particular were expansive and deliberate, stopping people without reasonable suspicion. by arresting them without cause and by using unreasonable force. these violations were not only egregious, they were routine. they were driven at least in part by racial bias. >> reporter: the justice department now suing the city of ferguson less than 24 hours after the city council rejected a deal to reform the police.
7:13 am
of course aed for are very reasonable. we're not trying to take away any safeguards. >> reporter: the attorney general wasn't buying it saying blacks in the city which saw so much unrest after the fatal police shooting of michael brown -- >> they have waited decades for justice. they should not be forced to wait any longer. >> reporter: ferguson officials say they're willing to reform police practices but argue that implementing the deal might be too costly and that changes were needed. ferguson city councilman mark burns sent us an e-mail last night saying while washington politicians can run up endless debt that doesn't work in ferguson where we, quote, actually have to pay our bills. the legal showdown now fully engaged. robin. >> it certainly is. all right, pierre, thank you. now we turn to amy with the morning's other top stories starting with a tragedy in maryland. >> it is so, so sad. flags are flying at half-staff across maryland to honor two sheriff's deputies shot and killed while responding to reports of a suspicious person at a panera restaurant. this is north of baltimore.
7:14 am
wanted on two warrants opened fire targeting the deputies before he himself was shot dead. the deputies were 16 and 30-year veterans of the force. well, there are new precautions now because of the zika virus. the u.s. olympic committee says it will hire infectious disease experts to advise athletes about the outbreak in brazil after soccer star hope solo expressed concerns about traveling to the rio games this summer. north korea leader kim jong-un appears to have made another move to tighten his grip on power. sources in south say he's executed his top army general citing abuse of power, a day after the senate approved harsherharsh er sanctions on the regime. they're con depping iran for releasing video of a detained american sailor who appeared to be crying. a u.s. navy spokesman says we are disgusted by the exploitation of our sailors for propaganda propaganda. ten were held after straying into iranian waters.
7:15 am
from india as an elephant rampaged through this town for hours crushing cars. it damaged about 100 homes. people ran for their lives but the animal was not on the attack. apparently it was just looking for the way back to the forest. it was subdued with tranquilizers and returned to the wild. and finally, sometimes you just really, really need your morning coffee, especially after a snowstorm so forget the four-wheel drive. one woman in canada relied on four-legged drive and hooked up her trained border collies to her sled and made a bee bee line for the tim horton drive-through. they had a special lane for her. an urban musher. i didn't know there was such a thing and a pro. she didn't get any coffee for the dogs. she said they're plenty hyper already. that's what i call a coffee rung, you know. >> maybe a doughnut for the dogs. >> that would have been nice. they had their treats. >> thanks, amy. we'll move on to the debate over concussions in pro sports.
7:16 am
that big announcement from daniel bryan who says he's retiring because of repeated head injuries. jesse is here with that and bryan wants to send a message. >> he sure does. the #thankyoudaniellebryan is filling up after the fan favorite announce noed severe concussions are forcing him out of the ring and now wants to be a role model for others at risk. >> exchanging head butts at the top of the ladder. >> reporter: it's hits like that and slams like thisin that now has one of pro wrestling's most beloved superstars off the mat. >> i took a test that said maybe my brain isn't as okay as i thought it was. >> reporter: 34-year-old wwe champion daniel bryan announcing this week that he's walking away from the sport he loves because of concussions. >> within the first five months of my wrestling career, i had already had three concussions.
7:17 am
when you've been wrestling for 16 years that adds up to a lot of concussions. >> reporter: his doctor documents at least ten of them, some bryan says even leading to seizures. so, unlike many pro athletes in sports where concussions are a constant danger bryan is one of the first to walk away before too much damage is done something he's encouraging others to consider. >> you have a responsibility to yourself, to your family, to your friends just to protect yourself. >> reporter: and bryan makes it clear he doesn't blame the sport or the wwe. he says after his last concussion, even after several outside doctors had given him the okay, the wwe would not clear him to return. and that decision may have saved him from a situation where he wouldn't have been able to walk away by choice and maybe without major consequence. >> this is his choice. >> you're seeing more and more athletes. nfl players have left the sport early in their careers because of concussions. people becoming much more proactive.
7:18 am
rob with the record. cold in the east. heat in the west. >> yin and yang and california, three days in a row of record-shattering heat and we'll do it again today. maybe slightly cooler, 10 to 20 degrees above normal. reinforcing shot with a run of

7:34 am
anybody do that? everyone? you always hear about people saying they're going to kiss the ground. peter, we saw your sister's video that she posted. you guys were told to stay in your cabins. it looks like you guys were in a washing machine. i mean, what was it like inside -- >> that's exactly what it was like. it was absolutely terrifying. we were on the third floor with an ocean view and we literally saw the ocean with dori swimming by. >> good you can have a sense of humor about it right now. but the captain would come on. you could hear even -- 17 years he's been a captain. he was experienced but there are a lot of crew members, this was their first time out. could you hear the fear in their voices? >> absolutely. my sister walked out into the corridor and saw some of the staff hugging and crying and that's when she got concerned. we also didn't have any life vests in the cabin which is unusual. we've cruised many times and i guess they keep them at stations
7:35 am
to the cabins and there were no life vests. luckily we had our own personal snorkel vests and my sister was wearing it throughout the -- >> yes. >> you guys have been on cruises before. wasn't your first rodeo. >> we have. >> lauren, okay, i can understand this, you had a panic attack. >> oh, yeah. >> even though you were -- >> beyond. >> even though you were told to stay in the cabin, you had cabin fever. had to get out. >> we were probably -- we were all together probably in the room for 20 minutes if that and then we left. yeah. i couldn't do it and the crew members were even telling us get back to the room and i said, no. i'm not going back. >> i hate to use the phrase but you said you felt like you had a "titanic" moment. >> i felt that way when the captain came on the actual loudspeaker telling us to get back to our rooms. he didn't sound very convincing that it was going to be okay so it just -- everyone around us just started crying, saying they couldn't breathe. i had a guy rubbing my back up the stairs saying it's going to be okay. when everyone is freak out like
7:36 am
>> not everybody was freaking out. charlotte, you're 10 years old. it was your birthday cruise. >> yeah. >> and your daddy and everyone said you were having a good time eating candy and stuff. what was the like for you. >> it was kind of scary since i saw the waves and they were basically almost crashing on to our terrace. and the room is basically tilted all the way down like a ramp but when it wasn't moving i just ran down and then i fell on the bed. it was fun but still really scary. >> yeah, because your daddy was there for you and you had to be concerned, papa. >> it was very concerning but we tried to make the best of it. >> you said you got to eat candy and got quality time with your dad, one-on-one time with your dad so there was a bonus there. you heard in linsey's report the response from royal caribbean saying that there were some gaps and stuff. looking back, what do you all think should have been perhaps done differently, would you want something different? >> yes, it came to my attention from a meteorologist friend of
7:37 am
forecast up to a week before and i've been watching the news since we came on land and they say even 24 hours before, the forecast was very accurate as far as what we were sailing into. so, you know, in retrospect, the captain did maneuver us through the storm, but i think he was instrumental in getting us to the storm and that's what i think needs to be addressed is how do we prevent this fwra happening again. >> the big lesson here. show of hands. ship again? >> look at you. >> a few shaky hands. charlotte was right up. quite a daughter you have there. >> she's a daredevil. >> hey, thank you all very much and finding the humor in it. i know it had to be some very scary moments and thank you for sharing your story. >> they're not scared off at all. coming up as the temperatures plunge what should you do if you want to use your phone outside?

man helping police catch a drug suspect by tripping him. on a sidewalk. police released the video in hopes of finding him so they could thank him for doing their legwork and now they have. it turns out he is a soldier in the british army and like any good soldier he is always on duty. and finally the secret service has posted a sign outside the white house that may seem a little obvious. it reads, weapons prohibited at the white house. well, the agency tells "usa today" that it's required by law to post the sign to have the right to search people. but here's the deal. that law was passed back in 1988. it took them 28 years to get the sign up. no word why it took so long, but good work, guys. better late than never, robin. >> i guess so, amy. thank you. we have a big health headline for the millions of americans frying to lose weight. two-thirds of u.s. adults are
8:03 am
obese and a new study from johns hopkins says those popular weight loss centers that so many use may not be helping. dr. jennifer ashton is here with the details. what's going on? >> if you are overweight or obese and in my office i would likely counsel you about the importance of losing weight and then might likely refer you to one of these weight loss centers to help you because this is an ordeal. so what this study did, they did a report card in an urban area of medical weight loss centers and what they found, they didn't do so well. there is a lot of room for improvement. one of the findings was about 1% only follow the actual medical guidelines in helping patients lose weight. fewer than one in three are actually supervised by a physician. and only about 3% are recommending the proper amount of physical activity. so, again, not such good report card here. >> these are shocking numbers. >> yeah. >> why are they not following
8:04 am
i mean, my take on this is a number of possible explanations. number one, a center may choose deliberately to pursue their own approach, which is fine as long as you're transparent about it and want to follow your own recipe. what would be more concerning if they were actually unaware that there were real guidelines that should ideally be followed and, lastly, obviously there could be financial gain here and it could be a scam so this is a scenario where patients need to proceed with caution. >> congratulations, you are just newly -- >> yes. >> board certified when it comes to obesity medicine. there is some research out there that shows why it is so difficult for many to lose weight. >> right, we know based on the obeseity medicine data in some cases losing a significant amount of weight may not be as simple as eating carrot sticks and exercising a lot. this is a complex issue with multiple causes. there are metabolic reasons, hormonal reason, environmental
8:05 am
behavioral, genetic. this is a war on obesity, so we need an army to fight it. >> jen, you know so many people, they see these centers in malls, in strip malls and all around. what is your recommendation. >> well, proceed with caution. okay, there are a couple of tips. nun one, you want to be clear about your goals. are you going to lose 20 pounds or going because you're trying to lose 200 pounds and ask about the credentials of the people operating these centers. >> good. >> that should be up front. it's not a secret. you are entitled to know their qualifications. ideally, people can go to the internet and read the american heart association and obesity society guidelines on weight loss from 2013. it's a magnum opus but it is there and accessible for everyone to look at and, lastly, you have to factor in cost. we say it all the time. it's expensive to be overweight. but getting good health can also be expensive and so cost has to be factored in. >> wonderful suggestions right there. congratulations again. >> thank you. >> like she needs another title.

i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse.
