2:00 am
that number is exactly what the threshold is. >> chad, thanks. that does it for this edition 360. thanks for watching. "early start," the most important show on television begins right now. thanksgiving travel nightmare. a deadly storm plaguing the country, grounding planes, bringing traffic to a standstill. we are live with where the storm is headed next. and the chaos already created from the nation's biggest airport. challenging china, u.s. bombers flying over islands and space china says belongs to it. three arizona kids claiming they were held captive in their own home for years. malnourished and dirty. finally finding their way to freedom. the shocking accusations ahead. good morning, welcome to
2:01 am
"early start." i'm zoraida sambolin. >> i'm christine romans. nice to see all of you, it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. >> unfortunately, we begin with an eye on the weather. this massive storm now a nor'easter. it's barreling up the east coast. it's bringing strong wind, heavy rain and snow and making travel a bit of awe nightmare for millions. >> let's start in cleveland. it was sloppy 3 to 5 inches around the region with even more today. some areas could see up to 10 inches by the time this is over today. it's so pretty, isn't it? >> it is but nothing pretty about trying to get to grandma's house. >> we originally planned to leave in the morning but news of the weather forecast, we decided to leave early to try to beat the weather down. >> i'm from north carolina, so i'm definitely not used to this type of weather. >> it's smart to leave early but drive slowly. new york's area, albany, also finding snow. just a dusting when this pictures were taken.
2:02 am
but it promises to be messy there, rain, sleet in the forecast. >> it could be tough around pittsburgh today, with rain and snow, keeping the roads pretty slick there. there were accidents all over major highways as drivers tried to get home just as the storm hit. >> indra petersons is tracking this for us. but first, if you're planning to go anywhere east of the mississippi today. be prepared to wait. and wait and wait. so this storm is hitting some of the nation's biggest cities and biggest airline hubs. and that means big delays for millions of travelers. but we're hoping there are no cancellations. renee marsh is live at reagan international airport. what can you tell us, renee? >> reporter: let's call this the calm before the storm. you can see people are showing up to arrive only first flights here at reagan international. of course, at is this point, things are okay. of course as the day goes on,
2:03 am
things will change. roughly 200 flights canceled nationwide. that is what the outlook looks like according to flight tracker websites this morning. and about 120 delays at this hour. here at reagan national airport, luke at the boards, everything looks pretty good. on time, on time, on time. but, of course, it is still early. as the volume picks up with the flights, we're going to see the boards start lighting up. i want to take a look at the thy map. you can seat most delays. you see the two airports on top with the most delays. jfk and newark airport. if you're in a situation where you're delayed, you just want this thing to be over and you want to get to your destination. let's take a listen with some people are going with just that. >> this is about weather coming in and get to the family. that's pretty much why i moved
2:04 am
it up. >> i just wanted to get out. >> just looking at that weather, that big green/pink slop coming our direction, time to get out of the way. >> yeah. >> so get out now at all costs. >> got to be home for turkey day, righty. >> just want to get home on time for the holiday. don't want to rent a car and drive all the way to north carolina. >> we got a sweet turkey waiting for us. >> all right. so, again, last check on that misery map we saw, jfk and newark airport, they were on the top of the list in the last three hours with the most delays. but when you look at the numbers, they're relatively low right now, those numbers indeed, without a doubt, will climb as the volume of flights climb as well. so be prepared to not be able to get to your zestation at the time that you thought you were going to get there. back to you. >> as long as the flights an
2:05 am
canceled, rene, i think people will have patience with that. keep on tweeting out if you see those become cancellations and not delays. thank you. indra petersons is tracking the storm. she is in the pittsburgh suburbs this morning and she's joining us on the phone. how is the situation there, indra? >> you know, it's really amazing, coming in yesterday, i was shocked to see that the planes landed. visibility was so poor. light rain yesterday afternoon. there's definitely some flurries coming down here. take a look at the radar right now, you can actually see where the system is right now. the travel nightmare is filled with so many people today. we're still talking about heavier rain pushing into the northeast. take a look at the northeast all the way down to the mid-atlantic. you're still talking about that heavy rain on the back side, just like in pennsylvania, still talking about the snow coming down. the bulk of it pushing east, that's the good news, kind of moving out of the ohio valley. unfortunately, conditions can worsen to places like upstate
2:06 am
new york with heavier bands of snow making their way in. speaking of snow, we've seen good amounts in ohio, 6 to 8 inches of snow already. also just north of us here in pennsylvania, we have a good 10 inches of snow. we kind of had an idea of what we're expecting as we push through this later time this morning. that's what we're concerned with, really the heaviest amounts of rain and snow today, are going to be the morning hours trying to get out ahead of thanksgiving. we're still talking about anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of rain can be seen in the northeast. of course the higher up you are. the farther north, heavier amounts. the farther south, you'll see that rain taper off, we'll see probably 1 to 2 inches on the back side, we're still talking about anywhere of a foot of snow especially off the great lakes. tapering off to kentucky, tennessee will see some of these flurries. here's the thing that everyone seems to forget, even when you start to see the rain and snow taper off tonight which we will
2:07 am
by midnight, things could be gone, but wind. that is one of the biggest reasons that we have the travel delays. the winds are out there and they continue to strengthen. as the system makes its way north, we'll talk about the winds first hanging around the mid-atlantic. 20 to 30 miles per hour. new york city, 45-mile-per-hour gusts never a good thing for delays. as we go into it, we see the wind shift farther to the east. boston on thanksgiving, we'll still be talking about winds even as we go through thursday evening. definitely a lot in the picture here. a lot of cancellations still likely when we get to the storm. >> that's unfortunate. i'm really worried about the roads. we were coming in this morning. there's a lost water accumulation. i'm concerned about accidents along the way because it was pretty dicey. pretty dicey. >> thanks, indra. we're going to try to get you off in the next half hour. and contentions between the u.s. and china.
2:08 am
sending a pair of b-52 bombers over the china sea. iran calls it a routine mission. but china saying only they have the right to patrol skies there. david, does this have the makings of an international incident? >> reporter: well, christine, it could certainly have the makings of an incident or flare-up. this is an intense region. the chinese response to the b-52 bombers flying through there, saying we're watching you. they say they tracked those, through a disputed area of japan and china. china saying they reserve the right to act if they wish against any suspicious aircraft or military planes in that zone that they declared just days ago. certainly, says that worrying development in this carry because it has long been disputed, christine.
2:09 am
>> have are the chinese saying about this? we know the chinese are flexing their own military might in the region. what are they saying? >> reporter: they're saying they have the right to protect their national security. they point to the fact that the u.s. has similar zones around its airspace as a way to protect the u.s. shores. they're saying they're just doing the same thing. well, the problem with that argument is that, analysts say well, this area, isn't decided between japan and china. by china saying they effectively own the policing of this area, they say they're just inflaming tensions further and making it less likely that any kind of diplomatic solution between japan and china could come through. it must be stated that no one really believes that china wants to have any kind of fight with the u.s. and japan on this issue. but perhaps there's an accidental chance that something could happen that could flare-up. >> david mckenzie, thank you,
2:10 am
david. 9 minutes past. how do americans feel about the nuclear deal eye iran? >> this is according to a reute reute reuters/ipsis poll. >> interesting story in the years just after the september 11th attacks, the cia reportedly turned guantanamo bay prisoners into terrorist-fighting double agents, sending them back home to spy on al qaeda. in return, according to the associated press, the cia promised the prisoners freedom, safety for their families and millions of dollars from the agency's secret accounts. the ap says the system was carried out called penny lane. the program ended in 2006. obama care is headed back that the supreme court. the justices can agreed to hear

2:31 am
busiest travel days of the year. the scene in ohio, let's start there, it is snowy with 3 to 5 inches of wet, sloppy precipitation on the ground. with even more headed their way today, it is making it tough to get around. it means for many heading out extra early. >> we originally planned to leave in the morning. but news in the weather forecast, we decided to leave early. >> i'm from north carolina, i'm definitely not used to this type of weather. >> in new york state, it was an ugly start to the storm. all of the rain and sleet making for an awfully ugly day to get around. to north carolina, the rain piling up quickly, 2 inches' worth. caring off the roads in some places. and overwhelmed storm drains leading to serious backups. i can tell you that is quite a mess there. indra petersons is in the middle of the storm this morning. she is live in the pittsburgh
2:32 am
suburbs. when we went to you a minute ago, you were covering up. how bad is it there? >> it's snowing. it's one thing that is going to be happening but it's beautiful. it's something want for the holidays you just want it when everyone's at their destination and say and sound. unfortunately, the biggest travel day of the year not good to see this. actually right now, i'm standing here in pittsburgh. you actually see the highways, some people trying to get out early. youngstown, ohio, going that way. going to pittsburgh, off in that direction. you can see definitely we're getting the flurries here, we have the icy conditions. let's take a look at the radar and see how many people are going to be affected by the storm and are currently affected by the storm in one way or the other. you guys described it perfectly. there is everything going on. we have rain stretching down to the carolinas. heavy rain even expected to get even heavier as the storm makes its way north today. on the back side, we have snow. right here in pittsburgh, pennsylvania.
2:33 am
snow is out here. we've seen a lot of it. take a look at the snow totals. in ohio, 6 to 8 inches of snow have already been seen. yes, just north of us, here in pennsylvania, we've seen 10 inches and more of it on its way. here's the low making its way up the coastline. remember, it's coming from the south. a lot of rain packing a good punch out there. as far as rain, anywhere 2 to 4 inches can still be seen, especially if you're farther north, tapering off as the low makes its way north. the snow totals most likely moving down into western portions of new york. also into pennsylvania, also back through west virginia. those are going to be those hot spots. remember, even with visibility, all the aircraft trying to get around. very difficult getting into pittsburgh, you almost didn't see anything until you just landed so that's going to be complication as well. then there are the winds. even though as we go through the day, we start to see the winds taper off. heaviest rain, heaviest snow,
2:34 am
but as we go through the evening hour, all of this does start to taper off, as far as the precipitation, but not the winds. right now, this morning, 45-mile-per-hour gusts seen in the new york area. we're talking about the mid-atlantic seeing the stronger gusts. then they shift. as we move into thursday, we're going to start to see even overnight into thursday morning, the winds shift farther out in the northeast and boston. of course, the rest of the northeast. so this travel nightmare is not going to be done for at least a good four hours, guys. >> that is not good. we're hoping that the winds could hold off until much later. all right. indra, you look bundled up nice and bull. thank you. coupled with bad weather with one of the busiest travel days of the year, it adds up to delays, delay, delays. rene marsh live at reagan national airport. rene, with all of that travel volume, that's going to be difficult and ripple up and down the east coast, isn't it?
2:35 am
>> reporter: absolutely. i mean, even if you're not going to new york, you talk about that ripple effect, other people will feel it in other cities, because that wind creates a situation where they really have to space out those planes. they can't land as many within an hour that they want to. so that's where you're going to start seeing the delays. here at reagan national, you see people there arriving for their flights. things looking smooth so far here. you look at the boards here at reagan national, and you see good news. on time. on time. on time. but here's the thing, it's still pretty early. of course, as the day goes on, as the volume picks up, we know that we'll start to see these boards lighting up. so i want to give a live look at this misery map. that's what we're calling it here. this is from flight aware. this is essentially showing us in a snapshot of three or four hours or so, what the situation is looking like in the airports seeing most delays. jfk, newark airport, they're seeing a lot of delays.
2:36 am

2:37 am
turkey. at this point i can tell you this, according to the flight tracking websites, we have at this point, over 200 cancellations. and as the day goes on, we may see that number go up as well. also seeing delays as well. you just want to call ahead before you get to the airport. back to you. >> i thought it was great, that person said, smooth flight, no delays. a tall order, right. >> i want that every day of the year. pack your snacks and pack your patience today. 37 minutes past the hour. tensions between the u.s. and china picking up this morning after two american b-52 bombers flew over the east china sea this week. a direct challenge over china's control over the airspace. the flights went off without any incident. beijing said it identified and monitored the b-52s and will continue to exercise effective control of the territory. >> legal proceedings will

2:44 am
many people is positive, but definitely, he is launching a broadside on many of the things that we take as commonplace in the world today. for one thing, he's very much looking at the church, its bureaucracy, its structure, its leadership. it's hierarchy and its mission. and he's asking fundamental questions about the purpose of some of the old tradition which really have no grounding in faith. he wants to change all that. he's looking at the way the economy of the modern world works, consumerism, the power of money. and he's asking whether this is serving anything. or he's suggesting it's really hurting society. now, it's important to keep in mind, zoraida, that what has come out in this 86-page document called "evangelic" which is latin, for off the cuff
