good evening. and it's great to have you with us here on a sunday night. and this was it, super typhoon haiyan. moving over the philippines this weekend. bringing with it winds close to 200 miles per hour. churning at that speed up to 48 hours straight. a humanitarian crisis of enormous scope playing out. this is what the typhoon looked like from space, stretching for 300 miles. by some estimates, the death toll, as many as 10,000. perhaps even more. and this is what's left behind. you can see the line of destruction right there. the trees standing to the right. everything else in the path wiped away. hundreds of thousands of families homeless this evening, making their way through what's left. so many looking for food for their children. this little girl in a grownup's tattered t-shirt. standing there on a stable. so many stunned by the devastation around them. tonight, international help is on the way. disaster aid being loaded onto planes. here's the latest this hour. at least 4 million people
affected. and, of course, that horrific death toll. the super typhoon destroying 80% of everything in its path. abc meteorologist ginger zee standing by with the science behind the strength of this storm. but first, our team reporting from the devastation zone. abc's gloria riviera is in the philippines tonight. >> reporter: from the air, parts of tacloban under water. the airport flattened, the roof demolished. commercial flights to evacuate impossible. >> we don't have homes. homes. we need -- we need shelter, food, light. >> we don't have food. we don't have anything. we don't have houses. >> reporter: locals fled to the airport, desperate to escape. the military giving parents with the youngest victims priority. i just want to show you right now, this is the airport departure lounge. you can see that roof ripped off. debris, flooding. and lines of people who are coming here to the airport. no guarantee. they call them chancers, hoping for a chance to get out.
they say the surge rose high on the control tower. water and wind ripping the insides out of the terminal. the aftermath, eerily silent. the sound of devastation. cars tangled in downed power lines. residents young and old pulling together what they can. some have the grim job of bringing the bodies of victims to this church. those with injuries treated as best they can be. with reports of increasing looting, some officers back, but feeling helpless. >> all of the evacuation centers have either collapsed or have sustained huge amount of damage. so really people are really living in open areas. people also really need food and water. everyone started to loot in order to get any kind of food. >> reporter: c-130 aircraft are landing and bring emergency supplies. the typhoon wreaked havoc across this province. the damage severe. the challenge now, getting to those who need help the most.
but for so many here, still searching for loved ones. it seems there is only heartache. gloria riviera, abc news, tacloban. >> thanks to gloria tonight. chancers looking for a chance. those people at the airport. ginger with us now. you've been tracking all of this. so many people in this part of the world know hurricanes. and people have said this is the equivalent of a category 5? >> reporter: and a strong one. a hurricane is a typhoon is a cyclone, they are just called different things in different parts of the world. david, i first want to show you this picture. because it really gives you an idea of the huge boats pushed ashore and what was happening in the strong storm. either way, we don't have concrete numbers yet, we know at least 170-mile-per-hour sustained winds. up to 195 at landfall. and that's what makes this potentially number one on the planet storm, because if it ends up being 195, it will be that. and this buzz saw of a storm going through the central philippines, 48 hour, as that strength, at least category 5. that's wild to think of.
because we have them and they die out right away. the storm surge? at least 15 to 19 feet. i've seen some reports of 25. that would fill a second story building. >> and you heard some of the people saying that's exactly what it did. ginger zee, thank you. we move on now and we turn on this sunday of football to the fire storm surrounding the miami dolphins. the nfl investigating the culture inside their locker room. the player at the center of the alleged bullying and hazing scandal, richie incognito, seen in this video. known and celebrated by many of his teammates for his aggressive nature. tonight, sitting down for a new interview. speaking out for the first time about what he says really happened with teammate jonathan martin. revealing that there were 1,100 text messages between the two. here tonight, abc's reena ninan. >> reporter: richie incognito breaking his silence, answering allegations he bullied teammate jonathan martin. >> you can ask anybody in the miami dolphins locker room who had jon martin's back the absolute most and they'll tell you undoubtedly me. >> reporter: in an interview
today with fox sports' jay glazer, incognito admits calling martin the n-word and leaving this voicemail message. "going to slap your real mother across the face." laughter. "you're still a rookie. i'll kill you." >> when i see that voicemail, i'm embarrassed by that. i'm embarrassed by my actions. but what i want people to know is, the way jonathan and the rest of the offensive line and how our teammates, how we communicate, it's vulgar. it's not right. >> how do you expect anybody in america to believe you're not a racist? >> it sounds like i'm a racist pig, it sounds like i'm meat head. i'm not a racist. and to judge me by that one word is wrong. >> reporter: incognito says that rough banter flowed both ways and claims martin once sent a text threatening to kill incognito's family. >> now, do i think jonathan martin was going to murder my family? not one bit. >> reporter: he says it's all locker room culture, a culture documented in "hard knocks." in 2012, it featured incognito
and the miami dolphins. >> i was going put something up there rude, but then i saw the picture of your girlfriend, i felt bad. >> reporter: and those more than 1,100 reported text message, which fox says incognito showed to them. incognito says the last one came as recently as friday, four days after martin left the team. martin allegedly writing, "i don't blame you guys. i blame some stuff in the locker room. i blame the culture. i blame what was going on around me." >> this isn't an issue about bullying. this is an issue of my and jon's relationship. >> if jonathan martin was sitting here right next to you, what would you say to him? >> i think, honestly, i think i'd give him a big hug right now. because we've been through so much. i'd just be like, dude, what's going on? why didn't you come to me? >> reporter: incognito says he would apologize to martin's family if they thought this was all malicious. martin reportedly checked into south florida hospital last week and has since left. but david, so many people tonight wanting to hear his side of the story. >> reena, thank you. we turn now to the governor hitting that controversial
headline head-on. new jersey governor chris christie, widely considered a potential presidential candidate for republicans, after his re-election this week. tonight, weighing in on that "time" cover of him, titled elephant in the room. christie saying he could care less what they put on the cover end cover, as long as his name's on it. right here on abc, george stephanopoulos asking, will he serve out his entire term as governor, or does he have something else in mind? here's abc's susan saulny. >> reporter: it amounted to a victory lap this morning. new jersey governor chris christie, fresh from a republican landslide in a blue state, with his advice on how to win. >> go everywhere. show up. govern and make decisions. >> reporter: christie's triumph has triggered a frenzy of coverage, but nothing like this, "time magazine's" now infamous elephant in the room cover. >> the elephant in the room. did that bother you at all or did you think it was clever? >> you know, george, if i'm bothered by jokes about my weight, it's time for me to curl up into the fetal position and go home, okay? i mean, the fact is that, you know, if they think that you's clever, great for them. >> reporter: jokes aside, some
republicans are questioning christie's conservative credentials, whether he's a good fit for the gop beyond new jersey. as for running in 2016 -- >> i'm the governor of new jersey. that's my job. that's what i asked for for four more years. that's what i intend to do. >> all four years? >> listen, who knows? i don't know. i'm going to continue do my job and finish the job. everybody who is trying to figure out what life is going to bring a few years from now, i didn't expect be sitting here four years ago, george, so, nobody can make those predictions. >> reporter: christie is being coy about a white house run, but that didn't stop him from prominently criticizing president obama's apology about the health care rollout this week. he said it's not enough. david? >> susan, thank you. overseas tonight, the nuclear breakthrough in iran breaking down. world leaders meeting with iran, walking away from the table and it comes after iran's new president just visited the u.s., sending out a tweet on his way back to the airport, you'll recall, after a phone call with president obama.
tweeting, i express my gratitude for your hospitality and your phone call. the tweet later deleted, perhaps over concern how it would play back home. still hope for an agreement. then this weekend, the president of france suddenly objecting. pushing for the iranians to give up even more of its nuclear program in exchange for relief in sanctions. secretary of state kerry walking away from the table, as well. negotiators will meet in ten days to try to salvage the talks now. and a reminder here tonight about a sprint to a different finish line. a countdown to the olympics in sochi. look at this tonight. the olympic torch taken on a space walk. flying high above the earth for the first time. but back on earth, growing controversy over the games. president putin sparing no expense, but just where is all that money going? abc's kirit radia in sochi tonight. >> reporter: the olympic torch. boldly going where no torch has gone before. part of relay as grand as vladimir putin's vision for the olympics. russia's hosting the winter
games in sochi, a town best known as a beach resort. last year, there wasn't enough snow, so they stored big piles under insulated blankets, hoping enough would survive until the olympics. it's an example of how putin sparing no expense. over $50 billion. by far, the most expensive olympics ever. one reason they're so expensive, all of these stadiums are brand new. the sky resort in the nines back there, even a power plant and the roads were all built just for these olympics. but critics say there's another reason. massive corruption. one report claims up to $30 billion was stolen. the ski jump, ten times more expensive here than previous olympics. this road reportedly cost over $8 billion. more than the entire vancouver olympic budget. there is also a hidden human cost. bedrooms over here? this family lost their home. police forcing them out, citing a nearby olympic project. the family calls it a corrupt land grab.
in putin's russia, grandeur comes at a heavy price. kirit radia, abc news, sochi. back here at home tonight and to a consumer alert now after fears of an e. coli outbreak. a richmond, california, food supplier is recalling more than 181,000 pounds of ready to eat salads and sandwich fillings with fully cooked chicken and ham that may be contaminated with e. coli. 26 people in three states have been sickened. we'll have more on our website, abcnews.com. and to a headline from the northwest tonight. a deadly attack at an animal sanctuary outside portland, oregon. one of the workers attacked. she did not survive. the remote area and the roaming cats making it extremely difficult for rescuers to get to her. here's abc's aditi roy. >> reporter: the sun had already set at wildcat haven in sherwood, oregon, when officers responded to a 911 call saturday night, looking for a 36-year-old
caretaker mauled by an exotic cat. >> talking to the other officers, it's dark. this is a pretty remote area here. the area inside there also has wild look to it. >> reporter: by the time they got to the woman, seen here in a story about the sanctuary, she was already dead. investigators don't know if the big cat's enclosure was left open or if it escaped. abc news tried to reach out to wildcat haven. our messages have not been returned. it's just the latest attack at a wild animal rescue. >> the person is still in the enclosure with the lion. >> reporter: in march, 24-year-old intern diana hanson was killed by a 550-pound lion, which escaped from its feeding pen at a california sanctuary. and in june, 21-year-old marissa dubb was critically injured when a tiger attacked her at an indiana animal refuge. >> these are wild animals and even in situations where people who know lots about them and work with them, at the end of the day, they are what they are, which is wild predators. >> reporter: authorities in
oregon say all the cats at wildcat haven have now been accounted for. aditi roy, abc news, los angeles. >> aditi, thank you. and on this veterans day weekend, a touching tribute to a group of remarkable american heroes, known as the doolittle raiders. the 80 men risked their lives, turning the tide in world war ii in a bombing missional of japan, more than 70 years ago. only four men are still alive, three attending this weekend's reunion. toasting the event in silver goblets. the other 76 goblets turned upside down, honoring those raiders no longer with us. and a special honor for america's 38th president. the nation's newest aircraft carrier, the uss gerald ford, was christened this weekend. president ford's daughter susan doing the traditional honor, smashing a bottle of sparkling wine against the carrier. the uss gerald ford will be the lead ship in the navy's next class of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. much more ahead on "world news" this sunday night. remember this? believe it or not, there's
something else hurtling towards earth tonight. and it's not a meteorite. the giant satellite, like the movie "gravity," the debris on its path, hurtling towards us. we'll tell you what they know. and a tall tale tonight help solve it. which is truly the tallest building in america? new york's proud new freedom tower, or the willis tower in the windy city? the controversy swirling, and it's about to be decided. . . .

goce satellite has landed back to earth. >> we cannot say where re-entry is going to happen. >> reporter: goce launched in 2009, studying earth's gravity field. but now it's out of gas. just another piece of spiraling space junk. nasa estimates we are surrounded by 20,000 pieces, zipping along at 17,000 miles an hour. causing disaster for astronauts when russians blow up a satellite in the movie "gravity." but in real life, when it falls to earth, most of it is harmless. >> about 15,000 tons have returned from space. most of this burns up when it re-enters. >> reporter: but experts say pieces as big as 200 pounds could reach the ground. give or take a few pounds, that's a piece roughly my size. in february, cameras captured a 10,000-ton meteor exploding over russia. injuring hundreds. but scientists say you're far more likely to win the lottery than have the sky fall on your head.
