7:04 am
deaths reported, sam. >> unbelievable, gio and the damamage thereo what they'll look for is whether the straight line wins was such a pushing damage or they'll to see if there was a twist. if there is a twist, pow, tornado. now, if you think that february storms aren't powerful look at the size of tha tornado. this is just one of them we were talking about. that one in evergreen, virginia. now to waverly, virginia, a townn waking up this morning destroyed. a town that's looking around a realizing that at least three members of their communityre dead this morning. phillip mena is there live. hey, phillip, just tell us what you see around there. again, monster storm. >> reporter: absolutely, sam. good morning. the devastation in this town is just strikin and as you mentioned, right here is where those three people were killed including that toddler but there are no signs of the trailer they were in when the storm hit, all that's left are these piles of lumber and twisted metal and over there, the remnants of whahat was just yesesterday a functioning laundromat and rightow you can
7:05 am
just lined up there in the open air. authorities here are still assessing the damage, we are told. everybody has been accounted for but it's going to take months to rebuild, so, sam, just as you mentioned just a devastating blow to this community. >> i i got to tell you when people walk out the door and they can't realize where their streets are or where the markers that they knew every day in in their neighborhood it's unbelievable. this storm isn't done. we have power behind it. we've got big blast of cold air, some areas will still get snow. snow wrarapping around the great lakes and in it was a big snow system as well, 15 inches in indiana. 10 nearr int, michigan. this cold air charges in and these are the storm warnings ill out for that. so watch that low pull away then know we've got some big changes in the northeast all the way in the great lakes coming. watch these temperatures from the 50s today, pow, to the 20s friday morning. saturday morning, just 12 degrees in burlington, sunday, 31 degree.
7:06 am
bounces back by the end of the weekend but right n it's cold and windy coming in behind all that storm damage. >> okay, sam, thanks very much. we move on to the race for the white house. it's "your voice, your vot and with super tuesday just five days away, donald trump h lots of momentum after three straight wins. tonight's gop debate may be the last best chance for his rivals to sha things up. jon karl has all the latest. >> reporter: we're down to just five candidates on the stage tonight. if the othersan't find a way to slow trump down, it won't be long until we're down to one. at a predebate rally in houston, marco rubio showed a new willingness to take on donald trump. questioning whether he's ready to be commander in chief. >> you can't just say when i get there i'll hire t the smartest to do. >> repororter: in a fox news forum last night bot rubio and t cruz qstioned trump's conservative credentials. >> we are not going to allow the conservative movement to be defined by a nomee who isn't a conservative.
7:07 am
election, who the heck nows what he'd do as presidt. i mean, you know, we need a president we can trust. >> reporter: trump is also taking fire from the last gop nominee, mitt romney, over his unreleased tax returns. >> i think we have good reason to believe that there's a bombshell in donald trump's taxes. when people decide they don't want to give you their taxes it's usually because there's something ty don't want you t see. >> reporter: trump fired back tweeting that romney, quote, blew an election that should have been won and is now playing the tough guy. coming off three straight wins, trump now seems confident he's on h his way to the nomination. >> i mean, it's going to be an amazining two months. [ cheers and applause ] we might not even need the two months, folks, to be honest, all right. >> reporter: he's even musin about his potenal vice presidential pick. theutsider saying he may go with a washington insider. >> i do want somebody that's popoliticalecause i want to get
7:08 am
we all want passed that's just sitting there for years and years and years. >> reporter: trump is also getting his first insider support. just yesterday, george, he was endorsed by two junior memembers of congress, his very first congressional endorsements but as he told you just yesterday, endorsements are a, quote, waste of time. >> he did say that. you're in front of that board. let's give eveveryone a sense o why we call it supuper tuesday. what's at stake? >> t this is the single biggest day of the eire primary. nearly 600 delegates at stake, about halff you wld need to clinch the nomination. you've got most of the big states inn the south, a littl bit of new england, a little bit of the midwest and, george, this also where you can continue to get delegates even with a >> donald trump ahead in most of the polls in most of those states right now so both rubio andruz have to find somewhere cruz. his home state votes, he has to win texas and his entire campaign has been based o
7:09 am
if he can't find a way to win there it's lights out for that campaign. as for marco rubio it's unclear where he c can win but you can look at where he's spending his time. a lot of time in nnesota, virginia, nnessee, oklahoma, unclear which of those states he can win but he's got to show he can win somewhere. >> okay, jon, to matt dowdwd in texas where the republican debate will be held tonight. this debate is maybe the last best chance for cruz and rubio to shake things up. up until now they've been going at each other more than they have at trump. >> we've seen evidence that ted cruz is willing to take on donald trump but i think the real question mark is on the same stagean marco rubio willing to get into it with donald trump? and i think nobody knows the answer to that question. i think there's an an internal debate in the campaign whether they confront donald trump on the stage tonight or leave him alone and continue on the way. so i think that's the million dollar question. will marco rubio take ononald trump on stage tonit? >> will anyone pick up on this mitt romney weighing in on the campaign yesterday saying there
7:10 am
trump's tax returns. of course, he faced questionons, as well. you think anyone w will pick up that attack? >> i don't think so it seems a bizarre line of attack by mitt romney who as you say was attacked on his taxes by this. my advice to mitt romney, there's a lot of vulnerabilities donald trump has but don go after donald trump onn tax elevators. much. you'll join us on super tuesday. you all can s stay with us on super tuesday. i'll be herere with our whole political time plus full coverage on "gma" and "world news tonight." now to another battle, this one between apple and the government over national security and privac in an abc news exclusive "world news tonight" anchor david muir sat down one-on-on with apple ceo tim cook to find out why the mpany is refusing the government's request to unlock the san antonio killer's iphone. >> as we sit here you know some of the families of the victims
7:11 am
out in support of the judge's order that apple help the fbi unlock that iphone. one family reportedly saying we're angry and confused as to why apple is refusing to do this. what would you say to those families tonight. >> david, they have our deepest sympathy. what they've been through, no one should have to go through. apple has coorated with the fbi fully in this case. they came to us and asked us for all the information we had on this phone and we gave everything that we had. but this case is not aboutut one phone, this cas is about the future. what is at stake here is can the government compel apple to write software that we believe would make hundreds of millions of customers vulnerable around the world including the u.s. >>ou'd have to write that system in order t to unlock that phone. >> yes. yes, this is -- we ha no more information abo this phone. the only way to get information
7:12 am
we know would be to write a piece of software that we view as sort of the software equivalent of cancer. we think it's bad news to write. we would never write it. we have never written it. and that is what is at stake here. >> the fbi says it believes syed farook used that phone to communicate with his wife, his accomplice and i'm curious, do you struggle at all with the possibility there could be information on that phone that could reveal other plots, other people who were involved in planning the san bernardino attack? >> david, if we knew a way to get the information on the phone that we haven't already given, if we knew a way to do in that would not expose hdreds of millions of other people to issues, we would obviously do it. >> but in your quiet momentso you have any concern that you might be a able to prevent a terrorist attack by breaking into that phone? >> david, somehihings are hard, and some things are right, and some things are both.
7:13 am
>> and in this case, you believe ere are some things that justt should never be created. >> correct. >> as we walked across the apple campus, it was not lost on us that this would have been steve jobs' 61st birthday, cook says not a day goes by he doesn't think about his iconic predecessor. >> i did think about what he would do and i am so convinced knowing steve, steve alwaysid what he thought was right and it is so clear to me that he loved what america was founded on so much and would do nothing to put all these customers at risk. he'd be doing the same thing. >> and joining me now abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas and abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> pierre, one of the points cook makes if apple grants this request they may ask again it will set precedent. what are the feds saying about that.
7:14 am
they're just not buying cook's arguments. they say this is not about mass surveillce at all. one official told me the fbi simply wants apple to develop a way int that phone that will be known only to them. he admitted that the fbi and other police agencieies will likely come to apple with new requests in the future but each time each agency must convince a court to approve a search warrant and emphasized the san bernardino invesgation remains urgent because the killer couple swore allegiance to isis and said they need to know if others were involved and if anything else is out there. >> publicly we're talking about national securi versus privacy but legally it's more defined than that. >> refer, phone company, computer companies have been assisted the government in investigations and thereby violating people's privacy forer and the supreme court has upheld it. the legal question here is effectively is in that much different? is thi what's called an undue burden on apple? and that's as much a technological question as it is legal.
7:15 am
are they saying about these threats reportey made by isis against mark zuckerberg? >> the leaders of facebook and twitter have been the subject of online threats because they openly have stated plans to try to block the broad social media campaign from isis. butt a number of security analysts are skeptical of the vides credibility and whether this group really has the means to carry out that attack. >> thank you so much. george, over to you. >> we'll get the latest on that deadly rampage in michigan and learning what jasonalton was in the daybefofore he dithat. abc's alex perez has an exclusive interview. >> reporter:his morning, the attorney for uberriver jas dalton's wife and parents speaking out exclusively to abc news. >> what's important to them is remembering the people who were hurt. >> reporter: the attorney revealing new details about dalton's behavior in the days leading up to the soting rampage that took the lives of six people.
7:16 am
the last couple of days, his wife asked him and he said he was tired. >> what made him think he was acting differently. >> he seemed to be depressed and down which was not his norma character. >> reporter: he o only beg driving for uber in the weeks leading up to it facing six counts of murder. what were they thinking? >> they were thinking like everybody else, why. >> repororter: the motive for now remaining a mystery to even his family. >> jason by all accountnts was a fairly gregarious character, a good father, well known in the community. well liked. an tre was nothing to indicate that somomething like this would occur. >> reporter: as new details reveal that dalton went to his parents' house after the first shooting occurred at this residential complex telling his family that his chevy equinox had been sideswiped and he needed to switch cars eventually taking his parents' chevy hhr before heading back out.
7:17 am
>> that's correct. police told carol what happened. > reporter: at that moment was she in dielief? >> i can only imagine. she's still in disbelief. >> reporter: for "good morningng america," alex perez, abc news, kalamao, michigan. >> thanks to alex for that. amy, you have startling new video. >> this shows just how dangerous e-cigarette batteries can be. a man was putting change in his pocket. look at that. it happened at a gas station when h e-cigarette battery expled lighting his pants on fire. the clerk ran after him with a fire extinguisher. the man suffered second-degree burn and as e-cigarette batteries become more popular more battery mishaps reported so that is certainly a warning for everyone and talking about se really incredible video, you've got the elephant video. >> another warning, if you see an elephant, move out of the way. we have another dramatic video that comes fro africa. not from amy's safari this week which was amazing itself but
7:18 am
about poaching on a fact-finding mission when he was charged by these elephants protecting their young. he got too close. they wanted to protect themselves. and arizona senator jeff flake got a little too close and he is there e sponsoring a bill to crack down on poaching which helps fund terrorist groups in africa out there for a good cause. i got to tell you when you see those elephants up close, those tusks are incredibly large. you do not want to be anywhere near that. >> every animal in africa is a lot bigger than on tv. i found that out firsthand. >> we got to get to sam. more on those wins. >> when you're cleaning up today after all these storms, got a lo of trees down and power outages, the winds are still strong during the day.
