6:06 am
making their way here to the airport to find out what can they do here, can they get food and water here? the military has been giving it out and thousands of people are coming with as much as they can carry to get out of the country, out of the city. they want to leave the devastation behind. carol? >> paula hancocks, reporting live from the philippines. for more on how you can help the survivors of the disaster, please visit michigan state trooper lucky to be alive this morning after tumbling over a guardrail while chasing a suspect. the whole thing caught on tape. check this out. making a run for it as police cars converge. he leapt over the guardrail with the trooper following in hot pursuit. here you see him going over the guardrail. both fell about 30 feet. the trooper is recovering at home. the suspect is in prison for a probation violation. think being a harlem globetrotter is fun and games? showing off exceptional moves in honduras, but the goalpost

6:30 am
target of 800,000 by the end of november. a health and human services spokeswoman says the health department cannot confirm these numbers. we've always anticipated that the numbers would be low and increase over time. the main culprit? the bug-riddled obama care website, a problem that the president has said he would take care of himself if he could. >> i wanted to go in and fix it myself, but i don't write code, so -- >> reporter: the sign of the site's technical problems that there were concerns with before its launch. this internal memo released by house republicans reveals administration officials were worried about the possibility that the website's security controls are ineffective. but that problem was never shared with henry ciao, who was asked by staff oversight committee house members, you
6:31 am
were never asked about ineffective security? he said it is disturbing. >> it will be toxic for the democrats. we will tattoo it to their foreheads in 2014. >> reporter: as for those obama care enrollment numbers, one thing we should point out, a group called avelear health, it has come out for enrollment numbers for medicaid, that people who signed for obama care through the expansion of medicaid, that that number is fairly impressive, carol, 444,000 people, a much bigger number than what's coming through the federal marketplace and state-based exchanges. meanwhile, officials say hold on just a second. keep in mind the experience up in massachusetts. that is where the prototype for obama care was created by mitt romney. they say expect the same
6:32 am
experience they had up in massachusetts. things will ramp up slowly, carol. >> jim acosta, reporting live from the white house this morning. opening bell just rang on wall street. christine romans is in new york. so, christine, yesterday, posted a record high. >> that's right. >> smiling as big today. >> 35 records, carol, so a little bit of a pause wouldn't be that surprising. futures were lower headed into that bell ringing, 2:10 ago. when you put it in context, carol, each one of these days is so important to put into context what's happening in the market. the dow is up some 20% this year. that is an amazing run. now, the dow is 30 stocks. what about the nasdaq, a tech-heavy index? it has a lot of other things in there, too. s&p 500, carol, that's more like what the stock part of your 401(k) probably looks like. it's up 24%. it's been a very good run and now word this morning is, at

least, very early going, that investors, traders just kind of enjoying the most recent gains and trying to figure out what's going to be the thing that will keep propelling it. you got a little sideways to lower for the opening bell. 35 records for the dow, carol. unbelievable. >> it is unbelievable. it doesn't make much sense. unemployment rate is really high, the economy is still recovering. i know the fed is propping up. it just -- it's just weird. >> carol, the fed has put almost $4 trillion straight into the economy. $4 trillion. it's like ben bernanke is the $6 million man. i guess the $4 trillion man. that's one reason why you have seen the stock market do so well this year. >> many thanks to you, as usual. >> you're welcome. let's talk about the philippines now. desperation is certainly taking hold. survivors of typhoon haiyan are doing whatever they can to stay alive. for some, that means searching through debris for food and water. one eyewitness to the storm is urging officials to step in immediately to avoid a health crisis.

6:36 am
medical care to those areas as well. you'll start to see the huge swaths of area that are essentially like triage areas. >> it's just so sad. it's just so sad. go to our cnn website and provide some money for help. that's basically what they need right now. they need money. >> they need money and to keep doing it. because people tend to pay attention for a few days to this, a few weeks, even a few months, there will still be tremendous need there. >> dr. sanjay gupta, thank you so much. abc news reporter thought she was going in for a mammogram to help viewers learn about the importance of getting checkups, but it ended up saving her own life. a amy robach's emotional story next. to make their money do more.

7:00 am
in cleveland, headaches for the morning commute. but in atlanta, it is unusual. temperatures will drop into the low 20s tonight and trust me, southerners don't like that kind of weather. >> reporter: good morning. it's not your cup of tea? some people love those 20s. yeah, we're definitely watching a cold front. all of this cold air making its way across the country. kind of making it its way through new england and exiting out of new york. chicago, even ohio. we're talking about flurries. some of the first flurries out there. some of the heavier snow around the great lakes. they'll see more of the bulk of it. anywhere from the mid-atlantic all the way down, yes, trying to even get into the south. that is like a month early to be seeing some of these snow flurries. maybe two to seven inch around

they thought that was all stemming from an insect bite while racing at the texas motor speedway. of course, now we're learning more. they thought it was an inflammatory condition but now they're announcing it is ms. >> he's determined to continue racing, right? >> yes. we have a quote from him. he said, i've never been more driven to compete. my goals are the same as they've been since i started racing. i want to compete at the highest level. and i want to win races and championships. i am the best -- i'm in the best shape i've ever been in and i feel good. so he's in good spirits. >> and of course he's a fighter. dr. sanjay gupta is here. explain to us first, ms is a neurological disease? >> yes. there's a coating around -- think of them like wires. if you lose a coating around a wire, it doesn't conduct as well. it's the same with ms. that coating deteriorates in
7:04 am
certain parts of the body. sometimes it comes back and sometimes it goes to other parts of the body. >> can it affect your physicality? >> yes. numbness and weakness. and one of the hall marks is you may have, for example, buriness in your left eye. and then it goes away. and then numbness in the right foot. >> that's scary because this guy drives cars for a living at very high speeds. why is it safe for him to continue driving? >> unlike a stroke, it's not that these come on sundayenly. he's going to be monitored. and there are certain medications that can help stave off for how long symptoms return. and also, other things. for example, heat can really bring on symptoms. so by keeping the inside of that car really cool, there will probably be special things done for them to help him out. >> and i would assume that he's gone through many tests. nascar required him to do that.
7:05 am
>> yes. he had that condition in 2011. he had a spinal tap while he was in the hospital while they were trying to figure what was going on with this. and it wouldn't be safe for him to be out on the race track if he's going to be numbness in any of his limbs. >> so you can take drugs to control symptoms but the symptoms may not be apparent for many years. >> they may not come back for some time. it's not like he's in the middle of a race and he's suddenly going to develop that problem. it comes on more slowly. at some point ms can progress to something that's known as progressive ms meaning the symptoms never go away you just start getting more and more symptoms. >> he's just so young. 22 years old. >> 20 to 40 is often when people are diagnosed. >> thanks so much. in 2006, housing bubbles were the big problem in real estate. now the property prices are starting to recover, there are signs they're starting to
7:06 am
reappear in some parts of the country. sounds scary, right? christine romans is in new york hopefully to calm us down. >> i can tell you it's isolated. if you live in california, you know what i'm talking about. there are some potential housing bubbles forming. this is a zillow research. they're showing four different neighborhoods looking a little bubblish right now. these are the areas on this map where you're seeing home prices rise. and you're not seeing wages necessarily going up in tandem. you're seeing a lot of investor interest in those markets. listen to what stan humphries told me about it. >> when rates go back up to 5% or 6%, people in san jose are going to be spending half their income on their mortgage. and when that happens, prices go flat or start to fall again.
7:07 am
>> the percentage of our incomes that we're spending on housing right now is lower than the historical average. that means housing prices have come down so much that we're not paying quite so much historically for the cost of our homes. that means that you're not seeing bubbles in most of the country. he also says things aren't back to normal yet, carol, for the country as a whole in housing. we're not back to normal. not only is it not a bubble, we're not back to normal? why? we need more first time homebuyers to be able to take advantage of these low mortgage rates and buy into the market. >> you know what the problem is with that. it's difficult to get a loan. you can have low mortgage rates, that's great. but if you can't get a loan to buy the mortgage, it doesn't matter. >> and a lot of banks requiring 20% down, you have to have really good credit, two people with steady income. it's interesting, ironically,
7:08 am
stan humphries says, if mortgage rates start to rise, maybe the banks will loosen the purse strings a little more. a few banks have already started lowering some of the requirements. there's a great story about how if you're getting a jumbo loan, your interest rates are lower than regular folks because the banks want to bring in people who have more money. so jumbo loans actually are being cheaper right now than conforming loans. >> thanks so much. still to come in the "newsroom," what really went down in the miami dolphins locker room. the team owner wants to find out. joe carter is covering that story this morning. >> reporter: good morning. steven ross, the owner, wants to get to the bottom of this. the first step in doing so will be a face to face meeting with jonathan martin tomorrow. we'll explain how that can

miami dolphins owner stephen ross wanted to clean up the mess in his locker room. he's flying in tomorrow to meet with jonathan martin. >> went to get to the bottom of it. went to get to hear all of the real facts are. there's been so much said and done to date, that, you know, i don't think anybody really knows what's happened because no one has spoken with jonathan martin directly. >> cnn's joe carter is in tampa where the dolphins lost in
7:13 am
monday night football. and ms. scott is an attorney that specializes in litigation. >> he will meet mart be later this week after he meets with the dolphins owner. how will these meetings affect b affect jonathan martin's future? >> if i could be a fly on the wall for both of those meetings, we would know a lot more. we really don't know the full scope of what exactly took place inside or outside that locker room, within the offensive linemen group. something that happened to the point where it prompted jonathan martin, a multi millionaire athlete, to pick up and abruptly leave the team. i think tomorrow when they meet face to face, stephen ross is going to get a much better picture of what happened with this player. is it something that the coaches
7:14 am
overlooked? is it something that the coaches approved? is it something that they didn't even do? and how he handles his team and organization moving will give us a pretty good indication as to what martin said and where his position is. all we've heard is from his lawyer and numerous sources out there that there was harassment and bullying and hazing inside that locker room for over a year and a half. and it finally was enough for martin to pick up his stuff and go home to his family. >> so aidan in a, mr. ross is going to meet with jonathan martin. i would assume his attorney would be with him. >> i would assume that as well. i think that the purpose of the investigation is to figure out what happened and who knew about it. there's allegations coming out now that the dolphins management was aware of the situation and encouraged it, and that's probably going to be a very big
7:15 am
focus of the investigation. not just what happened, but who knew about it and was there direction given to the players on the team. >> i'm trying to think of it in a normal employee employment setting. if i had a problem here, i wouldn't go see, like, the owner of cnn, right? i would go to the human resources department and we would go through that. and so is this unusual that the dolphins' owner wants to meet with jonathan martin? >> certainly it's unusual. most of the people that we work with are not scrutinized to the degree that the nfl players are. they certainly don't want this case to become the domino that sets off complaints from locker rooms across the country. >> joe, after jonathan martin meets with mr. ross, he said he's going to meet with investigators. do you know how many investigators will be in the room? >> no. as far as we know right now, it's just going to be ted wells
7:16 am
who was appointed by the nfl. he's handled other cases in the past. but as far as we know, it's going to be just ted wells. and then jonathan martin is assess supposed to meet with stephen ross tomorrow. a lot can change and come out of this in the next couple of days. at this point we just don't know what jonathan martin's side is yet. we've heard from incognito, and we've heard from the dolphin player and the coach and people within the organization. but we haven't heard from jonathan martin. >> there are have been rumors out there that jonathan martin was going to release a prepared video statement to respond to incognito's allegations. i would be surprised if that happens. but when all is said and done, no matter what happens it will be difficult for both of these men to be accepted by another nfl team. then what might happen? i mean, could either man sue the
7:17 am
nfl because they can't get a job? >> well, it is a reality that employees face when they come forward with allegations of harassmentment as they can imagine, it will be extremely difficult for mr. martin to probably reengage for many of his teammates. >> well, he doesn't want to return to the dolphins. but um wondering, if you have -- if you know -- i don't know. if you know that someone has a bad reputation or is a troublesome employee, i don't care what business you are, you're going to pause before hiring that person. >> i think that that's a reality. technically the law says you're not supposed to do that. you certainly can't retaliate against an employee that brings an angs of harassment of this nature. but i think you hit on the reality. it's difficult for employers to trust employees after something like this. it's just a fact. >> especially when it's so very public.

claims that investigators used interrogation techniques meant to confuse her and distorted her words to make it appear that she pushed her husband to his death in glacier national park. and in the court documents, they claim the investigators touched her inappropriately during polygraph testing and failed to record the entire interview. her pub defender, michael don hoe, won the right for her to stay out of jail pending trial. they say now that the prosecutors poisoned the jury pool publicly calling her a socio path. they're now telling her attorney that they have a new possible theory for the case. claiming that she may have blind folded him before pushing him off the cliff. the defense is arguing that they have overreaching and wants the trial date pushed back and some charges dismissed.
