checking in with fox. >> doug: and the latest on what is happening overseas, doug. >> good morning, well you just mentioned these terror attacks and series would appear to be terror attacks in brussels not just at the airport but metro station there as well. we're still kind of waiting to get more information on this. we don't at this point as far as we know have a claim of responsibility here but the timing is certainly interesting given the fact it's a few days after arrest of one of the prime suspects in last year's paris terror attacks in a neighborhoods just outside of brussels, timing here would certainly lead one to believe that this could be a resfons that arrest. but we just don't know at this point and we're just in the process of trying to ascertain the full scope of the attacks and again the number of fatalities keeps creeping up and the ap reporting now that at least 13 but that number may go up significantly as the day progressing here. >>
where they are now. that terror threat at highest level and what are you hearing as far as people listening to that and just sort of staying put. >> well, sorry i missed beginning of that but the embassy in belgium is uming americans to what they refer to shelter in place kind of stay put while all this plays out. it will be interesting to see the response here in the united states. we have not heard much at this point as to whether airports will be on heightened levels of alert here at home and it is certainly a possibility given the nrakt are other airports now that we're hearing about in both the uk and in france, for instance, that are mightening their levels of security in response to what happened in brussels we have not heard anything from tsa as i heard at this point and certainly possible we'll hear something from them very, very shortly we may hear something from white house
>> thanks a lot, appreciate the insight. >> doug: with the fox. what is happening now a number of eye witnesses stay brussels devastated at this point. surprisingly a lot of people online talking with folks and showing video and european media and people saying it's like a war scene there stepping over people who lost lives in this tragedy and expect death toll may continue to rise throughout the day. big question is will there be any more attacks. that's what everybody has on their mind now. >> we're covering the story all morning long. stavrping thank you steve still ahead what would do you if you could avoid paying taxes for the rest of your life. the results of a survey might surprise and make you laugh a bit. >> and looking outside tuesday morning. pretty look at the cherry blossoms. with that light on them they're blue this morning.

we're continuing to follow deadly attacks that happened in morning in bell yum min international airport in brussels and several metro stations in city a short time ago. >> two explosions reported in departure 'of airport. one american airlines check n maureen joins us now from the newsroom with latest on what we know. mel, good morning. >> good morning, allison, stev steve, several reports say the death toll climbed to at least 23. we're hearing 11 or 13 dead at the airport and 10 subway station. several other injured according to belgium broadcaster vrt. again they're reporting at least 23 people are dead in explosions that rocked both airport and also subway stations and belgium officials are calling this suicide attac attack. authorities now locked down capitol and airport was evacuated. passengers on the tarmac a ver very, very stunning sight to see. all flights out of brussels cancelled at this hour and flights coming in in
diverted thousands were moved to the tarmac. the blast happening 8 a.m. brussel town peak travel time. we also learned all metro stations in brussels are closed after reports of additional explosions at several subway stops in that city. a lot of them near the european union stations which is very important hub for diplomats and others who go to work in that area every single day. authorities are referring to these explosions as terror attacks. the terror level has been raised to the maximum level and blast coming days after the only surviving member of the paris attacks is arrested right there in brussels. authorities had feared his arrest could trigger more attacks and right now the president of france is holding emergency meeting and security has been stepped up at london main airport. but british officials are not raising their terror levels to highest level yet. rite now stand at severe second highest level on five point scale mean ago tack is likely. highly likely. bell yum federal prosecutors say one of
blasts was probably caused by suicide borm and steve and allison giving you context about the airport in bell yum june. it's not a big airport say about the sides of airport in philadelphia not bibig at all but a main hub. a lot of connecting flight and used by millions of people and a lot of diplomats go through this airport i know from personal experience a lot of diplomats coming through. many dignitaries hopefully none included in this blast and we're hearing at least 23 people dead and 13 at the airport and ten at the subway stations and number is feared to possibly increase as we hear what happened here. you're looking aat live picture. let me give awe little glimpse of what people saw there. one man saying blood every why and people injured and ceiling collapsed and bags every why and one man went to buy a magazine had he not he would is been involved directly where one of the explosions went off in airport. this live scene again of the tarmac and thousands of pa
tarmac for fear of more explosions and authorities trying to get a handle on what is happening an you can see the confusion and people dazed. witnesses report having folks running out with blood streaming down their faces and children with back packs trying to run away from the terminals there where this explosion happened. again, two blasts, two at the airport and several at the metro station. steve, a allison i'll throw to you but we're gathering information. terror levels throughout europe being heightened in wake of terror attacks coming on heels after rest of one of suspects in the paris attacks. i'll be monitoring the situation and will have updates throughout the morning. but again, steve, allison. throwing it back up to you and likely to grow. . >> i have not glon out of philadelphia in a long timement airport comparative size between reagan national and dulles in
