7:02 am
getting here to our studios as we speak. again, all the travel woes, it's great to have them here with us. >> can we have a count of how many times derek has won? >> five. >> five times, wow. amber was so jubilant when she won. saying, she wants women of all sizes to know they can do whatever they put their minds to. it was really inspiring. and well deserved. >> cannot wait to talk to them. a lot to get to. let's get right to the latest on the holiday travel. busiest travel of the year. we have full coverage from extreme weather team. sam starts us off outside in times square. a roughly morning out there, sam. >> yeah, it has been, george. we're in a break right now in times square. but we're ten minutes away from another deluge of rain. that's the way it's going to go all day long. we'll show you how the rain goes, from the deep south into maine and beyond. quick zoom-in for some road surfaces. there's some watches and warnings out. 11 states with flood watches from georgia to maine. 12 states have wind weather watches, warnings or advisories.
7:03 am
and 11 states have winter weather watches, warnings, and advisories. that storm animation takes this storm out of the way by late tonight into tomorrow morning. it's gone. the only thing left is cold air and wind. right now, just north of new york city, we have flood warnings. we have flood warnings just west of new york city, around the new jersey turnpike. that's where our ginger zee is. good morning, ginger. how are those roads? >> reporter: yes, sam. we've seen a steady flow of traffic here. but that's not the case everywhere. of the 43 million americans traveling, 39 million right here on the roads. the snow, the ice, just a mess. now has gone from miserable to what could be dangerous. this morning, a holiday horror show from mother nature. possible tornados reported in florida and in eastern north carolina, a state of emergency declared. at least two people injured, evacuations ordered, as 77-mile-per-hour winds damaged buildings and knocked out power to at least 6,000 homes. >> it sounded like a freight train.
7:04 am
>> the neighbor's roof and his dhimny was in our backyard. >> reporter: this trampoline up a tree. and this two by four, into a wall. hundreds of accidents in 13 states, on this one of the busiest travel days of the year. in southeast pennsylvania, this school bus flipped on its side, sending the driver and 14 high school students to the hospital. this guy, near pittsburgh, found himself upside-down in his car. >> i just lost control and hit the side of the bridge. and i guess i spun. >> reporter: in michigan, a truck jack knifed, narrowly missing this stopped vehicle. in new york, as dancers rehearse for tomorrow's macy's day parade, big concern for the balloons. howling winds could keep them grounded for the first time in more than 40 years. in 1997, similar winds caused a six-story cat in the hat to slam into a light post, showering the crowd with debris, nearly killing one woman.
7:05 am
you know there's something going on when you wake up in the 60s in the northeast and pensacola, florida in the low 40s. and big changes, too. sam? >> and big changes in the temperatures, as well, ginger, brought by that wind. let's talk about the travel conditions. the rest of the nation is looking at the east coast going, we're fine. and you're right. but take a look at what happens to the eastern seaboard all day long, that smash-up of snow and ice and rain into the weekend. and it doesn't leave until tonight. but all of the dry weather from the rest of the country sweeps in for the weekend. here's a look at what snowfall totals are looking like. we're dropping the snowfall totals around the western part of new york state. it's not a big snowmaker. but an inconvenient snowmaker. that's for sure. our reena ninan is in rochester, new york. good morning, reena. >> thanksgivukkah may be tomorrow. but here in rochester, it's a winter wonderland. and here's why. nearly a foot of snow. while this white powdery stuff may be fantastic for building a snowman, not so good if you have to drive through it.
7:06 am
look at the video of the conditions we drove through along i-90. if you have to hit the roads today, remember to keep your head lights on, don't use cruise control and pack one of these, an ice scraper. sam. >> you'll need one of those. even though the snowfall totals are a little less, it's tough to drive through four to seven inches of snow, no matter what you're doing. especially for the holidays. just a quick roundup is that we have travel troubles on the roads with the wet surfaces and wind problems today on the eastern seaboard from probably washington, d.c. north will cause the airport delays. let's get back inside the studio, gang. >> speaking of that, sam. thank you so much. more than 3 million people are traveling by air this holiday weekend. and many of them could face serious delays, as sam was talking about. abc's david kerley has the latest on all that. joins us from chicago's o'hare airport. how's it going, david? >> reporter: pretty good, robin. good morning to you. today, 2.4 million are going to travel. here are some of them, lining up getting ready to go, trying to get home for the holidays. the real question is, does the weather cause serious delays today?
7:07 am
the mad dash is on to avoid a departure board filled with delays. in pittsburgh -- >> the snow slowed everything down. so we've been in a panic. >> reporter: in atlanta, one out of every three flights was delayed by weather. now, it's the big northeast hubs that are being hit by this slow storm. in the united airlines chicago o'hare command center, they know that the eastern storms could make their jobs tougher today. the pressure is on airlines in this busiest flying time of the year. for us, a behind-the-scenes look as united airlines turns around a plane quickly. your connection is less than an hour? your luggage is now a hot bag that handlers want to move quickly to the next plane. >> that's the one we're looking for. good job. want a job? >> reporter: inside, cleaning crews, and caterers, bringing on more foods. there's more than 200 actions under way to prepare this plane. and then, reload the bags.
7:08 am
how could somebody pack that much stuff in there? fuel is going on. the pilot does his walk-around, knowing that a packed plane wants to get home for the holidays. this 737 has been on the ground for an hour and 26 minutes. and now, they're pushing it off so it can take off. for this flight an on-time departure. they even arrived in l.a. early. but today could be a much different story. sara here with her two kids trying to get to harrisburg. and here is the good news. take a look at this. this is the departure board at o'hare. look at this. on time, on time, on time, on time. the airlines were able to get their aircraft in place this morning. so sara's polite is on time this morning. the question is later on this afternoon. robin, we'll have to wait and see. so, sara's flight is on time this morning. the question is later on this afternoon. we'll have to wait and see. sara and the kids get to see the cousins for thanksgiving. >> i love the fist-pump from sara. thank you, david. we appreciate it very much. but the weather, not the
7:09 am
only big story. >> not at all. rising tensions between u.s. and china. america sending b-52 bombers over disputed islands in the east china sea, a direct challenge to china's claims to control the air space. it's the latest scrimmage of the u.s. and china over influence in asia. abc's chief foreign correspondent, terry moran, in washington with more. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. high tensions over the high seas, for sure. this showdown between china and the u.s. began when china staked a national security claim, out of the blue, really, to hundreds of thousands of square-miles of air space over the east china sea. and it was a muscular claim. it was based on their claim over those little disputed islands. japan says they belonged to them. and china warned any plane flying into that zone must identify itself or china had the right to take military action. in response, the united states sent those unarmed b-52 bombers as part of a long-planned military exit through that zone. china didn't respond. stakes are very high here. u.s. ambassador to japan, caroline kennedy, just took up that post, issued a strong statement.
7:10 am
she said that what china is doing here, staking this claim, undermines security there, and increases tensions. and so this is a real showdown out in the east china sea. >> you say the stakes are high. but we're looking at the photos of the islands there. a couple of barren rocks. the u.s. taking this very seriously. this is not the end of it. >> absolutely not. those rocks are over a lot of oil, and gas, and fish. there's a lot of money involved here. and vice president joe biden is going to head to the region to try to calm nervous allies very soon. >> terry moran, thanks very much. let's get to josh and the other top stories. >> we're going to begin with new security concerns for the upcoming winter olympic games in russia. overnight, we learned 14 members of an islamist militant group have been arrested in moscow, reportedly armed with explosives, detonators, and guns. police have yet to say what the group may have been plotting. their arrest coming just one month after this deadly bus bombing in southern russia. you saw it there. an attack the police believed was aimed at undermining olympic security preparations.
7:11 am
breaking news from ohio right now. some 400 homes southwest of cleveland are being evacuated because a railcar is believed to be leaking a highly-flammable and toxic liquid used in plastic and rubber products. it's leaking in a rail yard in the town of willard. we'll have more details as they become available this morning. in the wake of the irs targeting scandal, the obama administration wants to limit the political influence of tax-exempt groups. and thus, it is proposing new rules and donation standards to curb the explosive growth in political spending by nonprofits. the irs has been accused of unfairly scrutinizing groups affiliated with the tea party. and the coast guard has helped rescue more than 100 haitian migrants. you can see some of them here scrambling after a jam-packed boat began to sink off the bahamas. rescuers did drop life rafts and food to the survivors.
7:12 am
however, 30 others didn't make it. off the west coast, a stunning sight here. boaters getting very, very close to a swarm of sharks. they are leopard sharks. most of them pregnant females. harmless, we're told. they migrate through the warm waters off of california to give birth. maybe you don't go tromping through a maternity ward of sharks in california. one young man's life may have been changed forever after what happened last night. two small colleges. oh, yeah, robin. huntington/marian, facing off. a basketball game for all the marbles. final seconds. huntington down one. and this -- >> merryman, catch and fire. and -- oh, he made it. >> shane merryman. and it goes. and the great thing about this,
7:13 am
two small colleges. last night, the twitterverse lit on fire about this. shane merryman, this moment is yours. take a bow, young man. you have earned it. >> he's going to be telling his grandkids about that. >> showing them. >> and showing them, too. >> he's going to be twice as far and twice as much. >> thanks for sharing that, josh. now, to the virginia state senator recovering from an attack by his son. creigh deeds is blaming local authorities for his son's suicide. and vowing to improve mental health services. abc's jim avila has the story. >> reporter: senator deeds blames virginia's mental health system for not keeping his son, gus, hospitalized, the day before he shot himself to death. e-mailing a local reporter, i'm alive for a reason. and i will work for change. i owe that to my precious son. the senator says he has strong opinions about the state agency that released his son, gus, after a mandatory four-hour psychiatric evaluation, saying they could not find an available bed for him. the attempted murder/suicide,
7:14 am
happened just hours later. and deeds wrote, i feel like they are responsible. close friends of gus tell abc news, they saw signs of mental illness ever since his father lost the virginia governor's race in a landslide. and then divorced gus' mom. >> he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. and did get treatment. and for a while, i know he was on medication. >> reporter: tony walters knew gus since they were kids in rural virginia. and followed him to college at william and mary, where he watched as the sweet banjo-playing music student suddenly disappeared. he withdrew from school and his friends. >> he seemed scattered and different. he had strange paranoias. we wondered, do you think he could hurt someone? do you think he could hurt himself? while we were talking to him, i feel like we all felt like, well, you know, gus is still -- still gus. he wouldn't do that.
7:15 am
>> reporter: the inspector general's office in virginia is investigating why there were no beds available for gus. senator deeds hopes to be an advocate for change in mental health. but for now, he just cannot talk publicly, quote, i cry a lot. i just cannot focus now and talk to anyone. george? >> such a sad story. we're going to switch gears to the black friday sales, two days away. some of the best holiday deals are out there. retailers walmart to amazon, offering the kind of discounts we used to see only after thanksgiving. rebecca jarvis has the story. >> reporter: it's the final countdown to the biggest retail rush of the year. the last few minutes of calm before the earliest black friday sale storm ever. what's the secret to get through black friday? >> basically, staying calm, cool, and collected. >> reporter: the turkey time chaos kicks off tomorrow at toys "r" us, before your stuffing can get cold at 5:00 p.m., when you can get your hands on one of these razor crazy carts, the toy giant is offering for $299.

then-husband's money, without their knowledge. >> it's a very simple recipe. >> reporter: but in a bizarre twist, it's now the popular tv cook who seems to be getting burned by the sisters who are accusing her of abusing drugs. >> these are the traditional flavors. >> reporter: the bombshell allegations are part of the grillos' defense in court. their lawyers claim lawson used cocaine, marijuana and prescription drugs on a daily basis. and they had a tacit understanding they could use her then-husband's credit card, as long as they kept her alleged drug use from them. >> a common defense strategy is always going to be to attack the credibility of a prosecution witness. i think that's what's happening here. >> reporter: the domestic goddess now has a new nickname from her multimillionaire ex-husband, charles saatchi, who in an angry e-mail to his former wife, described her as highgella. part of that e-mail which was read outloud by a drug in court
7:33 am
said you were so off your head on drugs that you allowed the sisters to spend whatever they liked. and, yes, i believe every word they've said. >> this is half the squash. >> reporter: some speculated maybe a case of sour grapes. lawson and saatchi's marriage spoiled very publicly this summer after photographer captured this moment with his hands around her throat. and tuesday, suggested in court that incident had something to do with lawson's alleged drug use. >> if they were to later determine that the allegations were untrue, it kind of already taints the trial. >> reporter: a publicist for lawson told abc news, we can't comment, as the court proceedings are live. the prosecution calls the allegations. and they didn't make the allegations until a year after their arrest. lawson hosts the show, "the
7:34 am
taste," which returns to abc on january. we turn now to o.j. simpson, behind bars for up to 30 years for robbery and kidnapping charges in las vegas. that's where he's going to stay. late yesterday, a judge denied his appeal for a new trial. david wright has the story. >> reporter: a nevada judge's decision to reject o.j. simpson's bid for a new trial means his conviction stands. for armed robbery and kidnapping. that conviction stems from the former nfl's star's botched attempt in 2007, to recover sports memorabilia he says belonged to him. >> i followed, what i thought, the law. i didn't break into anybody's room. the guy acknowledged it was my stuff. these were things i hadn't seen in ten years. and i was a little emotional about it. >> reporter: simpson had requested a new trial, arguing his old attorney blew it. making at least 22 mistakes at trial. but the judge rejected that argument saying, all grounds in the petition lack merit. and consequently are denied. >> the fight's not over. we're going to continue this on. one day mr. simpson will be vindicated.

8:17 am
francisco. becky, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. are you prepared for the battle that is black friday? it should, you know, just be a fight to get a good deal. not to get the last x-box in aisle seven. so, retailers are changing things up this year. we have a look at what's new. and my top tips to maximize your markdown mastery. black friday can be a full-contact sport. but this year, instead of coming armed only with a rolled up newspaper to fend off the hordes, this year, come with knowledge and my secret strategy. strategy number one, as you know a ton of stores are opening on thanksgiving. and after extensive research, here's my opinion -- the discounts on big-screen l.e.d. tvs, ipads and laptops are impressive. target has a $22950-inch l.e.d.
8:18 am
229 bucks. ipads, walmart has the ipad mini for $299. but here's the kicker. they'll give you $100 walmart gift card. wow. but for other products, meh. the deals will still be there on friday, over the weekend, and online. for example, android phones, three or a penny all weekend long in-store. even new ones, like the galaxy s4, a penny at staples or free at best buy with a two-year contract. you want an iphone? the 5c rolls out friday morning at walmart for $45. and they give you a $75 gift card. here's strategy number two. know what time your deal goes live. this year brings us the rise of staggered deals. for example, walmart has different discounts rolling out at 6:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., then friday morning. best buy rolls them out thursday night at 6:00, different ones at 10:00, midnight.
8:19 am
new deals, friday morning. remember when black friday was simple? and on friday? okay. moving on. strategy three, map your store. some target and walmarts are putting up detailed diagrams to show you where they're putting the product piles, the one that have door-buster items. beeline to your item with confidence. and before you go, strategy four. make technology your friend. last year, good samaritans were posting online about parking availability, as well as line length. so, big savings. if you do decide to forgo the pumpkin pie and the football, head out to the stores on thanksgiving, well i've got a list of the top 25 best, smoking deals. not just where and how much, but when they go live. they're all at on yahoo! i'm staying home to watch the
8:20 am
baltimore/pittsburgh game. finally football. >> you bet, becky. that's one of the "fs" to focus on tomorrow. thank you. time, now, to get the dance party going. robin, george, and our champions. >> all right, guys. "dancing with the stars," the top finalists, you see, are all here, to relive it with us. we have the mirrorball champions, amber riley and derek hough. our runner-up, corbin bleu, is here. and your partner, karina smirnoff could not be here. she had a family emergency. we're thinking of her. >> absolutely. >> and coming in a strong third, jock osbourne and cheryl burke. wonderful. it was so much fun to watch. but let's relive that moment when, amber, what you had to say when you took home that trophy. >> i did this competition because i didn't know if i could
8:21 am
do it. and anything that scares me, i want to do. i want to let women of all sizes out there know, you can do whatever you put your mind to. it doesn't matter what size you are, what color you are. you can do whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever you want to, now. >> that's what i'm talking about. love that. >> and you broke a little barrier last night. first african-american woman ever to win p. >> yeah. >> on "dancing with the stars." >> yes. >> we can really see how much this meant to you. >> it did. it meant a lot to me. i was -- man. it was hard. it was hard. you know, it was something i never done before. and i put myself in a position to do something new. and hard every, single -- every, single week, i was learning something i didn't know. very uncomfortable position to be in. but i just pulled it out. >> you talk about uncomfortable. the pain you were in. we knew about the knees. how are your knees holding up? >> they're really bruised. the top of my tibia is bruised.
8:22 am
there's a little bit of fluid on my knees. those will be gone with a little ice. >> derek, you had to work around that, as well. doing the choreography. congratulations on your emmy. we have not seen you since then. >> yeah. >> tell us how you worked around. we loved the jazz dance where you came up with the chair idea. >> three weeks ago, she texted me and said, i don't know how much i can do with my feet, my knees. so, i figured out a way we could do half a dance sitting down. and i was thinking, if we made it to the finals and freestyle, maybe do a dance on wheels. i don't know. but we fixed it. she came out and -- >> that was great. >> it was. and then, we have -- you are on this little show called "glee." >> yeah. >> well, your friends there, they have a little something they want to say to you. >> oh, gosh. >> hi, amber. congratulations. we are so, so proud of you. and love you so, so much.

8:24 am
>> there's something on the floor. wrong shoes. >> you still made it work. even you were just so into it. week in and week out, like everybody was. >> i grew up performing. i grew up entertaining. and i've made a career out of it. and to be able to perform on this caliber of a stage and have it so much at your fingertips, every, single week. that really was the highlight for this entire experience for me. it really was. >> talked about growing up performing. let's go back to the video vault. >> are you going to do that? >> corbin. >> 5 years old. >> first time on "gma." >> oh, my lord. that's -- wow. oh, wow. there's a kick, i think. wait. >> yeah. really funny. always, from day one.
8:25 am
>> jack, you grew up in the business, as well. you've been so open, on the whole show, about your issues with m.s. how are you feeling right now? >> i feel good. i'm a little tired. but i'm good. i'm hanging in there. >> if you weren't tired after this much on "dancing with the stars," something would be wrong. >> that's true. i would be derek. >> cheryl, we saw the special bond you have with that young man right there. and how emotional after the freestyle. the tears were just blow flowing. where does that coming from? >> he brought out a different side of me. in 16 seasons, it's the first time i've ever cried, with my partner. three times, made me cry. three times. he's proud of it. i'm just so proud of jack. i can't believe the struggle he's been through and being able to overcome that is so inspiring. and getting through that freestyle, after having a shaky jive in the beginning of the show, was pretty amazing. i'm just so proud of jack. he has come such a long way. >> we're proud of all of you. it's exciting to watch. >> very proud of all of you.
