7:00 am
now. good morning, rob. >> reporter: good morning to you, ginger. we're here in eatonton, georgia, where it's still lightly raining and take a look at the trees behind me, knocked down overnight. crews have been out trying to clean up all the debris left behind in the storm's wake and trying to get power to thousands across the country. >> reporter: this is a monstrous tornado caught on tape. >> i'm looking at it right now. >> reporter: plowing through central mississippi yesterday responsible for at least one death in kemper county where a construction worker was killed. and in pickens county, alabama, the force of the storm downing trees and destroying power lines across the state. in atlanta, georgia, the same system decimated this plumbing company's storage unit. >> the roof peeled off the building. >> reporter: severe weather is making its way across the country.
7:01 am
15 reported tornadoes in the last two days alone. tennessee, missouri, mississippi declaring states of emergency. in union, missouri, 150 children had the scare of their lives. while attending a youth meeting at this baptist church. >> we heard there was a warning so we got all the kids into a safe place and then it started to hit and tearing everything up. >> reporter: the storm tearing off a portion of the metal church roof. >> they were pretty scared, but we got them moved pretty calmly and safely. afterwards we came out to a pretty big mess all over the place. >> reporter: near st. louis it was an ef-2 tornado that touched down bringing with it winds of up to 135 miles an hour. >> things were hitting the house and, you know, the trailer like a train whistle going over us. >> reporter: demolishing this entire street in hazelwood. >> you could see and feel the wind coming. >> reporter: and, again, three confirmed deaths in this storm so far.
7:02 am
what a brutal start to spring. george. >> it sure has, rob. thanks so much. the latest on that dangerous standoff with north korea. secretary of state john kerry just arrived in south korea after the release of a new intelligence report concluding that north korea could probably put a nuclear bomb on a long-range missile. martha raddatz tracking all the developments and, martha, all kinds of tough talk from north korea. still no missile test. >> reporter: no missile test yet, george. but this assessment which was supposed to stay classified has raised the tension and temperature even further just as the u.s. was trying to tamp it down and convince north korea not to launch those midrange missiles. overnight the pentagon scrambled to downplay the assessment buried deep in a classified defense intelligence agency report, which says they believe with moderate confidence that north korea has, quote, nuclear weapons capable of delivery by ballistic missiles."
7:03 am
sources tell abc news, that sentence was accidentally declassified and that the intelligence agencies were caught off guard when congressman doug lamborn asked a joint chiefs chairman about it on capitol hill late thursday. >> congressman, with the number of caveats you put on the front end of this, i'm not -- i can't touch that one. >> reporter: early this morning secretary of state john kerry talked about the report. >> the united states and the republic of korea both want to see a peaceful korean peninsula. >> reporter: those comments follow president obama's rare remarks about the increasingly heated tension with north korea calling on the rogue state to cool down its rhetoric even as the u.s. is moving warships and sophisticated radar into the region in anticipation of a launch. >> now is the time for north korea to end the kind of belligerent approach that they've been taking and to try
7:04 am
to lower temperatures. >> reporter: meanwhile, in north korea, celebration for the upcoming anniversary of the birth of kim il-sung but next to the masses of flowers in his honor small replicas of north korean missiles. we should make clear that there is no indication that north korea is trying to arm any of the missiles it is expected to launch with nuclear weapons. but this assessment is alarming no matter how much the administration is trying to distance itself from it. >> you see secretary of state john kerry and the president trying to lower the temperature here. do you think there's any chance at all that north korea chooses not to launch a test. >> reporter: i think there is a slim chance of that. china is being pressured by the u.s., by everyone to try to tamp this down to try and talk to north korea, not to launch these missiles. so there's always a chance, but i would bet they still launch them. >> okay, martha, thanks very much. the rest of the morning headlines from josh.
7:05 am
disturbing news in arizona where authorities found a package at a local post office containing possible explosives and addressed to a well-known and controversial sheriff who has long been an outspoken critic of illegal immigration. pierre thomas has been following it overnight. what do we know right now? >> reporter: good morning, josh. today police and federal authorities are investigating what may have been a bomb mailed to sheriff joseph arpaio, one of the most well-known and controversial sheriffs in the country primarily for his tough stance on illegal immigration. a postal worker in flag staff, arizona became concerned about a package addressed to him. the package held a container and what appeared to be gunpowder. testing is being done to determine if it was a working, viable bomb. this morning sheriff arpaio's office is calling it an explosive that could have injured someone and they're taking no chances with the spate
7:06 am
of violence against law enare form including a west virginia sheriff gunned down last week. new details about the sweeping immigration bill set to be unveiled next work on capitol hill. the so-called path to citizenship that it would establish may not be as wide as first thought. a senate aide has revealed the bill would exclude any immigrant who arrived in the u.s. after december 31st, 2011 from applying for legal status. that means that hundreds of thousands of immigrants would never be able to gain full citizenship. now, the bill could be introduced in the senate as early as tuesday. investigators near dallas trying to determine what caused a charter bus to veer off the highway and flip on its side thursday killing two people and injuring 42 others. four victims remain in critical condition. the bus was carrying seniors to an oklahoma casino. one passenger thought he felt a tire blow out.
7:07 am
the driver was involved in a fatal crash before but was not charged in that event. a big scare in suburban los angeles. look what was roaming around glendale. you see it right there. that mountain lion, 120 pounds. okay, sure, jumping over fences, prowling yard to yard for hours. this is the san gabriel mountains on the east side of los angeles. three tranquilizer darts later, he took a nap under a patio. crews had to remove some of the decking to pull it out and tell us the lion is safely back in the mountains. i can only hope that we are as safe. a wild and serious brawl in the big leagues last night. zack greinke hit a padres batter in the one-run game on the 3-2 pitch. you can see how they met shoulder to shoulder. that collision, though, so violent that greinke, the dodger's pitcher would end up breaking his left collarbone, serious since he was just signed
7:08 am
to a $147 million contract. a very serious brawl as you can see here, players from both teams then got face to face well after the game was completed. sides were eventually separated and these two get back together. next week, i have a feeling we could see some stuff there too. finally a high school football coach in texas filing a lawsuit after he was mowed down by an out-of-control golf cart. now, take a look. it happened in 2011. it looked serious but no one was seriously hurt including the man hit. almost two years later, however coach willie amendola is suing the cowboys who owned the stadium for $1 million k4r5i78g claiming that he suffered considerable physical injuries but also i quote great personal embarrassment because the video went viral and has been viewed online 4 million times. we welcome "gma" legal analyst dan abrams to the program, and, dan, what could you make of this case? >> the embarrassment seemed to be the focus of the lawsuit and
7:09 am
yet by suing now the video is going even more viral and we're all playing it again. look, i think to win this case he's going to have to show some level of physical injuries. particularly this much after the fact it sure seems the fact that the video went viral is the heart of the lawsuit. and, yes, you can make that kind of argument. yes, you can claim embarrassment and shame is worth dollars. >> is embarrassment really a cause for lawsuits? >> yes. >> i would be a wealthy woman. >> you can say you've lost dollars because of "x" embarrassment. >> are you in the control room? >> josh elliott could be subject to many results as a result. >> very, very true. dan abrams, thank you. good luck in your future endeavors. >> nice to be able to step on the set and now i step off. >> all right, dan, thank you so much. to the emotions running high over the fight for gun control that is happening right now on capitol hill. this morning there's disappointment setting in for advocates who feel that there's
7:10 am
not being enough done to expand the laws requiring more background checks into the way people buy guns. abc's jeff zeleny has the story. >> the motion is agreed to. >> reporter: after clearing a filibuster hurdle democrats are trying to hold together a fragile bipartisan coalition to keep the gun control debate alive. >> the hard work starts now. >> reporter: the national rifle association, already stunk by the senate vote thursday already doubled its efforts overnight to hold ranks particularly among the 16 republicans who helped defy the party's filibuster threat. >> our loved ones didn't die no no reason. >> reporter: they pledge to stay vigilant pressing their case to expand background checks for people buying guns on the internet and at gun shows. >> we are standing here because my sister and her mom can't be. their voices need to be heard and will carry through us. >> reporter: the emotional lobbying from newtown families has built momentum but the gun legislation faces a long road. senator joe manchin of west
7:11 am
virginia tells abc he's willing to risk his nra rating from the nra. jillian soto isn't declaring victory yet. she'll be back on capitol hill when the debate begins next week. >> they deserve to have a vote and they deserve to die for a reason. >> reporter: the gun bill's chances in the senate remain an open question. even if it does pass next week or the week after a political reality check could be waiting in the house. i asked speaker john boehner about the chances for the bill and he said he sympathizes with sandy hook victims but made no guarantees the house would consider the senate compromise. >> we'll have more on sunday on "this week" with george. >> to a big move by the los angeles police department to stop a wave of where phony 911 calls cause raids on celebrities' homes. ryan seacrest the latest victim. police are trying out a new
7:12 am
strategy and abc's abbie boudreau has the story. >> reporter: so frustrated with fake 911 calls and elaborate hoaxes like these, the los angeles police department says it's no longer releasing details of celebrity s.w.a.t.'ing incidents hoping to prevent copycats. >> we only have so many cars at one given time and if some of those cars are diverted for nonsense like s.w.a.t.'ing then it impacts all of you. >> reporter: this may have been the final straw. a s.w.a.t.'ing prank wednesday targeting the home of "american idol" host ryan seacrest called to his beverly hills mansion after a 911 call alleging armed men were trying to force their way into his house. last week it was the homes of selena gomez and justin timberlake all pranks. >> there was a call, four men had entered the home and there was a call of someone being shot inside the home. >> wow. >> reporter: the fbi reporting 400 incidents nationwide annually.
7:13 am
experts say cheap technology allows pranksters look like they're calling from inside a star's home. >> any kid who is technologically savvy which is virtually every kid could be doing this. >> reporter: last month a 12-year-old tween confessed he was behind this s.w.a.t.'ing incident at ashton kutcher's home in october. california lawmakers are trying to pass a bill forcing those convicted of these pranks to repay police for their response. and while comedian russell brand himself a s.w.a.t.'ing victim this week told ryan seacrest he minds humor in all of this. >> i think if i were a teenager i probably would definitely do it. >> reporter: -- police say it's no laughing matter. for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> probably would definitely do it. okay. now, okay, so jay-z goes to cuba, takes heat, now he's rapping about it. >> firing back at critics of his

7:29 am
we learned arias is tweeting and selling art from behind bars and the jury had plenty of tough questions for one of her key witnesses. ryan owens has been on the trial from the start. >> so the jurors have some questions for you. >> reporter: those questions read by the judge sounded deeply skeptical of defense psychotherapist alyce laviolette and her claim that admitted killer jodi arias was abused by former boyfriend travis alexander. >> did you ever see any proof that travis physically abused jodi? >> reporter: she said she shot and repeatedly stabbed him in self-defense and the 32-year-old could face the death penalty if the jury doesn't believe her. the prosecutor portrayed this expert who was paid $300 an hour for her testimony was biassed towards arias.
7:30 am
>> why have you looked at arias multiple times when there were breaks and sidebars, to meet eyes with jodi and give her a small, warm smile. >> reporter: arias sat kwie tet through but it turns out she's been pretty outspoken on twitter. abc news confirmed this twitter account is really jodi arias. her words dictated to a friend. she's using the account to try to sell her art but writes a lot about her life in jail. "god bless five-day weekends." "no, i do not have a girlfriend. after everything i've been through, it's amazing i'm not gay." she also has a lot to say apparently about the man who wants to put her to death. prosecutor juan martinez who is very aggressive and not very tall. "those afflicted with little man syndrome taint society's perception of genuinely good men who happen to be vertically challenged." and this one "hmm, anger management problems, anyone?" arias even takes aim at a frequent guest on "gma." nancy grace who ridiculed her
7:31 am
claim that her crooked finger is proof she was a battered woman. actually nancy, that finger was for you. have a nice day. this is the woman actually typing arias' words. she served time with her and is in the courtroom almost every day, talks to the admitted killer frequently. she says the media just isn't being fair to her friend. >> i wish i could just say wait a minute, you know, that's not true. >> reporter: what would you say? >> i would say that's not jodi. >> reporter: for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, phoenix. >> i'm sure nancy grace will have plenty to say about that on "gma." she's actually busy today but legal analyst dan abrams is here. explain the strategy behind these tweets. >> unbelievable. jodi arias has a twitter account. i mean it's so bizarre to even think about. there is no strategy behind it, okay. let's be clear. i would assume her lawyers probably didn't know about it. are probably very upset about it. and are probably going to encourage her very strongly to stop doing it because it's not helpful to her defense.
7:32 am
so i've never seen anything like this but then again the advent of social media -- >> i guess she's trying to sell her work to her followers. no law against that. >> eventually i assume travis' family will sue her and that will end up with any of her proceeds, any income she earns going back to them assuming they win. for someone presumed innocent she can do this and try to sell her artwork, et cetera. on twitter. >> meanwhile, this domestic abuse expert been on the stand now taking questions from the jurors and some tough questions. >> that's right. not that that is surprising these questions are tough, right? these are very specific often disbelieving questions of this expert's account. but, remember, all jodi arias needs is one person so as we listen to these juror questions, be careful. remember, the majority seem like they don't believe her. with that said, if there's a
7:33 am
juror or two jurors who are inclined to say, you know what, this expert did make some good points, this kind of swayed me, that would be a huge win for jodi arias in the context of this case. >> okay, dan abrams. thanks very much. >> thanks so much, guys. to the latest in that bizarre custody battle involving a florida couple arrested for kidnapping their two young sons from the boys' grandparents and taking them to cuba. for the first time we're seeing the two brothers and their grandparents are speaking out. abc's gio benitez has the story. >> reporter: looking at their smiles you wouldn't know these two little boys were allegedly kidnapped taken to cuba on a five-day, 318-mile journey by boat. >> we have not asked the boys anything about the journey. we're just treating it as they went on a vacation. >> reporter: as 2-year-old chase shows off his toy trucks and 4-year-old cole playfully poses for the camera their biological
