7:02 am
see how little of it is left. but it's also an amazing story of survival. sam is live there in sanford, north carolina. good morning, sam. >> good morning. north carolina was hardest hit by this particular outbreak. the tornado that moved through here in sanford was on the ground about 63 miles. that's incredible. when it blew across here, it tore apart buildings, tossed the cars around, shut down that building, tore it down as well. remember, that's just 1 of 241 tornadoes, 14 states, 3 days. >> i would say it's coming straight toward me. >> reporter: steve was in his truck as a tornado barreled toward him. in wilson, north carolina. >> you hear the rain? >> reporter: his camera rolls. as debris flies through the air. it's not a safe place to be, but
7:03 am
steve is strangely calm. >> yep, there goes the roof off a house. i was just trying to keep the camera on it and watch what was going on. at the same time, trying to calm my sister down on the phone. i love you. i was surprised how close it was to me. it passed about 100 yards beside of me. i guess i wasn't afraid. because it happened to fast and was gone. >> reporter: it's taken days to get a clearer picture. take a look from the air. destruction as far as the eye can see. countless homes and businesses destroyed. millions of dollars in damage. in sanford, the lowe's was torn apart by a massive ef-3 tornado. with winds up to 60 miles per hour. 100 people were inside when the storm hit. it's about 3:20 when a giant black wall comes over this parking lot. glass is shattered. cars are tossed together. pieces of the building throne around.
7:04 am
in that building, people lived to talk about it. >> i saw customers, i ran to the door, i said, get in the house. that was crazy, i know. but that's what i said. i saw a giant gray cloud funneling. thank goodness our store managers and everyone, we just gelled together so well. it was perfect team work, like we had practiced it. no one, no one not even had a scratch. >> reporter: due to the work of many lowe's employees. including the store manager. mike's team corralled employees and shoppers as the store front blew in and rushed them to the back. you were just corralling people and funneling them fast to the center of the back of the store. >> yes, sir. >> reporter: how did you know that was the right place to go? >> because of the safety plan. >> reporter: and as we walked through the pile of barbecues in front of what is left of the
7:05 am
store, i can tell you this, it's very rare of a storm this size to have a good news side to the story. this one does. however, robin when we come back with weather, we'll talk about the weather forecast. probably more severe weather. probably more tornadoes. >> as you know, so many dramatic stories playing out block to block. after all of this destruction. we're going to bring you two of them. starting with david kerley in raw raleigh, north carolina. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. a remarkable story of survival. really, it's your worst nightmare. the howling winds, trees are falling, and you can't hold on to a baby in this terrifying tornado. how could that happen? >> there goes a roof off the house. >> reporter: look at what the winds did to these mobile homes. shredded. inside one of these trailers, 3-month-old aiden, being taken care of by a cousin.
7:06 am
the baby's mother was napping in another trailer. >> i heard glass shatter. i covered him up to keep stuff from falling on him. the whole side of my trailer came down. >> reporter: completely exposed to the twister. covering and holding baby aiden as tightly as he could. but it wasn't enough. >> the winds took him straight out of my arms. >> reporter: the wind just out of your arms? >> just took him out of my hands. >> reporter: a horrifying moment. robinson now alone, frantic about aiden. >> i thought he was gone. >> reporter: moments later, the tornado was gone. robinson got up. all he could think about was aiden. then, the little boy, lying on top of some wood several feet away started crying. >> i don't know what to call it. >> a miracle. >> this little baby, 3 months old, flying out of my arm.
7:07 am
>> reporter: i asked him, what's next? he's staying with relatives right now. i said, getting another trailer? another apartment? he said, i think i'm going to try a house. george? >> boy, that is a miracle. as we see so often, this kind of tragedy brings out the best in so many. steve osunsami is just down the road in north carolina. good morning, steve. >> reporter: there's an incredible story to what's happened here. the damage to this home and the young woman who was pulled from inside by her neighbors. this tree directly behind me fell on the very spot where she was taking shelter in what used to be this cast iron tub. as the tornado came barrelling down, maya knew what to do. she immediately ran to a second floor bathroom and took shelter in the tub, something she had
7:08 am
always been told to do. >> she was alone. that hurts me. >> reporter: but the tornado was so strong, it blew over this massive oak tree, splitting the house in two. maya was in the tub, it crashed down to the first floor. >> she went to the bathtub for safety. >> reporter: this morning, she's hospitalized, on a ventilator, and fighting for life. all across the state, there are scenes like this. one house destroyed, the one next door barely touched. >> yep, there goes a roof off the house. >> reporter: as the tornado hit, this family went to the neighbors. >> we started running. >> the first tornado i have ever seen. >> reporter: when that house was hit, it was nearly destroyed. it's set to be condemned this morning. the rizzo home is still standing. they've taken their neighbors in. >> we would do it regardless.
7:09 am
it's help thy neighbor. >> last night, she put her 4-year-old son to bed in his neighbor's house. >> mama loves you. he asked to see his room. we told him he couldn't. he got sad then. but he's been very strong. >> reporter: the family took us to their broken home and said they believe god has a plan. they say the houses are destroyed. but the families are strong. george? >> and their spirit is strong. thanks, steve. >> something like this brings people together. george, we're going to head overseas now. new terror concerns as the royal wedding day approaches. security being tightened. even more, officials worry that an extreme splinter faction could try to launch major attack while the world watches. our brian ross joins us from london. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, robin.
7:10 am
british security officials say that there's a concern of the royal wedding and the crowds that it will draw will be a tempting target for terrorists. there is concern that violent irish groups, including the real irish republican army may be preparing a strike here in the coming weeks. the official concern was on display just last month. when prince william and kate toured northern ireland with security at an extraordinarily high level. future royal couple represents a power couple, british rule over northern ireland is perceived as the enemy. >> i think they would not have fear of carrying out an attack on an event like the royal wedding. >> reporter: largely unnoticed outside of northern england, a splinter group has ignored the peace agreement meant to end i.r.a. violence.
7:11 am
>> everybody has to take that on board. that there is something new in play here. >> reporter: there have been more than 40 significant terror attacks in the last year alone in northern ireland. a policeman was killed by a bomb just two weeks ago. >> if you're not with them, you're against them. and they will murder you. that's the sort of tyrants they really are. >> reporter: prince william's father and mother were bomb targets of the old i.r.a. 25 years ago when they attended a duran duran concert in london. >> it remains the holy grail of these kind of organizations. >> reporter: police officials say the resurgent i.r.a. terrorists are well-armed and killed bomb makers. >> the component parts for rocket launchers. >> reporter: the rocket or mortar launchers are the most
7:12 am
troubling. they could launch a huge bomb over security walls more than 300 yards away. there's no specific intelligence that the wedding will be a target. but with that 300-yard range, a terrorist could be across the thames river and still hit westminster abbey. >> this is about delivering pain and death. that is not in doubt. that is what is so worrying about this campaign. >> reporter: again, there is no specific threat intelligence about the wedding. by mi-5, the agency that handles domestic terrorism has changed their focus to irish groups. as well as raising the specific threat level from moderate to substantial. >> have the royals been targeted like this before? >> that's right. in 1979, the i.r.a. blew up and killed one of the queen's cousins, lord mount batten. a mentor to prince charles.
7:13 am
and the attack at the harrod's department store that killed six people. robin? >> that is something that you do not forget. . >> we'll have all the details surrounding the royal wedding, leading up to the special coverage of the big event less than two weeks away. now to the latest twist in donald trump's potential presidential run. politico reports that trump is now talking to potential campaign managers and taking on president obama and the republican challengers in the race. john berman is on the case. >> reporter: he's on tv, on the stump. now he's at the top of republican primary polls. we know he has a big ego. but he swears he has big ideas and also, an enormous, well, see for yourself. donald trump's new message. size matters. his is -- >> much bigger and much more
7:14 am
powerful, much stronger than anyone really knows. >> reporter: really? compared to mitt romney, he insists -- >> i'm going to have a much, much bigger -- >> reporter: a bigger what, you might ask? >> net worth. >> reporter: now he's attacking mitt romney's bank account. estimated at several hundred million dollars. >> my net worth is many, many, many times mitt romney. >> reporter: trump is everywhere now. sitting at the top of republican primary polls. this weekend, at a tea party rally in florida. >> we're fast becoming a country of broken dreams. >> reporter: bold statements about his business acumen. >> i bought a house in bankruptcy court for $41 million. and sold it a fairly short time later for almost $100 million. >> reporter: and perhaps bizarre statements about new york's airports. where he lands his private jet. >> and it's like coming into a
7:15 am
third world country when i land at laguardia. >> reporter: and he continues his much criticized and most would say false rant about the president's birthplace. >> obama is unwilling or unable to show his birth certificate. >> reporter: to which analysts say -- >> it means he's off there in the nutty right and is now an inconsequential candidate. >> reporter: but trump swears he's doing it for love. love of america. >> i don't do it for myself. i'll be doing it for the country. >> reporter: the totally selfless donald trump. his show put out a press release saying that on their final episode, trump might set a date where he could announce he's running for president. but that couldn't about ratings. his bosses at nbc say they doubt he will run. they say it's about the donald being donald. >> if he does run, they have to take "celebrity apprentice" off the air.
7:16 am
remember when fred thompson, he said he was going to run, even the reruns of "law & order" had to be taken off the air. >> send in questions to my blog. tell me what you think about his run. let's go to juju with the morning headlines. good morning, george and robin. good morning, everyone. new rules at keeping air traffic controllers awake on the job are expected to be in place by the end of this week. the faa will require nine hours of rest time between shifts sin stead of eight. managers will be required to work early morning hours. authorities in japan admit it could take nine more months to stabilize the nuclear plants damaged in the tsunami. the president of the power plant was heckled in parliament when he tried to apologize. there was an encouraging sign in japan. toyota resumed production at its japanese plants. drivers in six states are
7:17 am
now paying an average of $4 a gallon for gas. new york is the latest state to top the $4 mark. michigan and indiana are close behind the first six. the national average is now $3.83. and it doesn't get any closer than this. watch the photo finish of sunday's race at talladega. jimmie johnson is in the blue car. and watch this. who won? with a fraction of a second ahead, as in 0.002. that ties for the closest finish ever. i mean, literally photo finish. >> but dale earnhardt jr. helped push him across. >> they were bumping? >> he was pushing him. they're teammates. he was helping him. he knew he had the better chance and helped him across. it was exciting. let's get back out to sam in hard-hit north carolina for us. good morning, sam. >> good morning, robin.
7:18 am

7:20 am
the craziest claims. >> reporter: $65,000 of payments to prostitutes? that's what a new york lawyer once claimed as a medical expense on his taxes. but dubious deductions proved no problem for chesty love. she said her implants are a stage prop. a tax court judge agreed. a professional body builder was able to deduct the cost of posing oil from his taxes. posing oil? this cpa said that you would the surprised what the tax code allows for. >> if they're ordinary and necessary, they're deductible. that's all of the internal code says. >> i need some deductions. >> reporter: before you get creative -- >> okay, marge, you required 24-hour nursing care, bart was wounded in vietnam. >> cool. >> reporter: just keep in mind
7:21 am
uncle sam has its limits. a pittsburgh furniture salesman paid someone to torch his business, the i.r.s. said he could not deduct that expense. so much for leading the simple life. and earlier this year, an ohio tv news anchor tried to claim $20,000 in business expenses for things like a bikini and thong underwear. the i.r.s. reaction? i guess your unmentionables shouldn't be mentioned on a tax form. for "good morning america," jeremy hubbard, abc news. >> deduct an arsonist? >> we have some last minute suggestions. on our website. the country music artist's emotional plea for her cousin's return. the latest on the search for holly bobo. plus, one man's daring campaign to catch a thief. and the interview with diana's bridesmaid. came pain to catch a they have. >>
