broadcast -- she was, like, wait a minute. what's going on here? >> when they said i was going to anchor, i was, like, oh, the pressure. >> join the party. >> you know what i was going to say is that i -- i cannot even say enough about the hospitality, the way that whit and gio have welcomed me here, so i would like to in front of everyone, welcome you to the overnight show. >> oh, there we go. we're officially part of your show. there we go. >> if you want to stay up. >> we'll try. you're the first person who's come to the show rested by the way. we are glad to have you. we are going to move on because we do have a lot of news, and just as the thanksgiving holiday travel gets under way, panic at atlanta's hartsfield-jackson international airport when a passenger's gun is accidentally fired at a security checkpoint. >> the weapon in a passenger's luggage going off. that passenger and gun still unaccounted for. at least three people suffered nonlife-threatening injuries in the chaos. >> this as the tsa says the thanksgiving travel period will be on pre-pandemic scales.
later in the show, we'll tell you how to best avoid the lines and the roads will very busy too. aaa expecting close to 50 million people driving for the holiday. but let's start with abc's zohreen shah with more on that frightening experience at the airport. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, mona. this is not the start to the holiday travel season that so many people were hoping for. a gun accidentally went off at atlanta's airport injuring three people and setting off major panic. this morning, authorities searching for the airline passenger whose gun they say accidentally went off at a security checkpoint causing widespread panic. the chaos unfolding saturday at atlanta's hartsfield-jackson international. people inside and out running for cover, fearing there was an active shooter. luggage left strewn across the floor. investigators say it all began when 42-year-old kenny wells was moving through security when the gun which was in the bag was detected by an x-ray machine. the tsa says agents opened the
bag and wells lunged forward, grabbing the gun, causing it to discharge. they say he then took off running and now faces multiple charges. huge crowds left waiting as flights were temporarily grounded. the airline scare happening right as millions are taking to the skies. atlanta is expected to be the busiest airport during thanksgiving weekend, followed by dallas airport and then l.a.x. tsa already reporting a record number of travelers on friday, over 2.2 million people, and the most jam-packed moments are still ahead. wednesday and sunday expected to have the most travelers. in fact, sunday is expected to be the single busiest travel day of the entire year. now starting tomorrow, vaccine mandates will take effect for tsa agents. the agency insists it will not disrupt holiday travel. gio? >> all right, zohreen, thank you so much for that. and now to the situation on the highways with tens of millions of americans now hitting the road.
abc's phil lipof is joining us with a look at gas and car rental prices and the best and worst times to go just about anywhere. phil, good morning. >> reporter: all of that right now. good morning, gio. 48 million americans expected to hit the road this coming week. if you are sitting there at home thinking, i'm going to be one of them, we have some information right now that might help you plan your trip. let's start with gas prices. aaa says gas prices have dropped a bit, but just a penny from last week is not going to help you that much. the national average still at $3.41 a gallon. if you are planning to rent a car, average price per day has gone up 66% since last year alone. the most expensive markets, new york city of course, $1.35 a day. charleston, south carolina, $1.23 per day. and while you're out there, here are some roadways and times you want to clear clear of. top three, atlanta, 85 south, wednesday between 1:30 and 3:30 in the afternoon. boston, 93 north between 1:00 and 3:00 in the afternoon.
to be fair, 93 north could always be a nightmare in boston. chicago 290 west wednesday between 2:45 and 4:45, avoid those times. the worst times to travel, wednesday, thursday, friday, late morning to mid-afternoon. best before noon or later on in the day, but the payoff here, thanksgiving this year in person for so many with your family. so no matter where you wind up on thursday, be safe and have a happy thanksgiving. mona? >> phil, thank you. regardless of planning ahead, weather is always a concern around thanksgiving. we're going to check in with rob marciano. rob, i see rain, lake-effect snow as part of your keywords up there. >> we have two systems affecting america over the next week. this one coming through tonight and tomorrow. chicago and cleveland seeing rain down i-70 and i-80, but clearing the coastline by tuesday at noontime, and that's
when the winds will gust up to 50 miles an hour, and that will be difficult, lake-effect snows and the next system coming in thursday and friday. so two storms to deal with as we head through the holiday. whit? >> all right, rob, we'll check back with you in a bit. and millions of americans are preparing to travel over thanksgiving, as we mentioned, and many also lining up for covid booster shots. now the cdc has authorized them for everyone 18 and older. abc's elwyn lopez joins us with more on the new rollout. good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning. a busy weekend administering that added dose of protection just in time for the holidays. this morning, that extra covid-19 shot in high demand as americans gear up for the holidays. >> i'm really happy about it because the holidays are coming up, and i would like to feel a little safer being around people. >> reporter: the cdc clearing the way for anyone 18 and older to roll up their sleeves for an added dose six months after their last one. >> we are seeing more breakthrough infections. that is expected to increase in the coming months because of the winter weather. >> reporter: this comes as 34 states are now seeing a surge in
new infections. the u.s. averaging more than 94,000 cases a day. that's 20,000 more than a week ago. in new mexico, health care workers were at their breaking point. >> our situation right now is dire. most of these patients are unvaccinated. this is overwhelming our health care system. >> reporter: and in connecticut, the gravity of battling covid-19 still very real for glenn merritt iii. >> i wasn't able to talk. my body wouldn't move. >> reporter: merritt was in a coma for four months after getting infected with the virus back in march. >> i wanted to get the vaccine, but here in connecticut, they were doing it by age groups and my age group wasn't available. >> reporter: it wasn't until last month that the 26-year-old was released from gaylord specialty hospital relearning how to walk and now on oxygen seven months after he was infected. >> dialysis, rehab, constant pain. it's not a way anybody would want to live.
so get the vaccine and just stay safe. >> reporter: whit, health care experts say booster protection isn't instant. it could take a week or two for antibody protection to kick in. if you get that booster shot this weekend, protection won't be guaranteed by thanksgiving. whit? >> elwyn, thank you. be sure to watch "this week" later this morning. martha raddatz goes one-on-one with dr. anthony fauci about booster shots and how to gather safely this holiday season amid rising covid cases, plus a special panel discusses the verdict in the kyle rittenhouse trial. gio? now to that missing chinese tennis star and new images this morning that supposedly show her alive and well. until they emerged this weekend, she had not been seen since accusing a senior chinese leader of sexual assault. let's get right to abc's julia macfarlane. she's in london right now with more. julia, good morning. >> reporter: gio, good morning. it would appear that chinese tennis star peng shuai has made her first confirmed appearance
back in the public eye. a chinese state media editor releasing a video appearing to show the former doubles world number one being introduced alongside the china open director at a youth tennis tournament on sunday. now, back on november 2nd, peng shuai wrote on social media accusing a former vice premier of sexual assault before they embarked in an on/off consensual relationship. she had not been seen or heard publicly since making those statements. this weekend, abc news did confirm that tournament took place sunday morning where she was seen smiling and waving, but we couldn't independently verify the authenticity of those images. this all comes amid the growing concern for peng's safety and well-being after she made those allegations, especially, guys, given the chinese government's history of silencing and censuring its critics. her reappearance comes after the editor of a state-run paper teased peng's return to public events in a series of
tweets on saturday showing her out at dinner in beijing. yet, she has not still publicly spoken out or addressed her past comments or her safety, and her social media profiles remain silent. the wta chairman and ceo steve simon reacted to those early videos in the restaurant saying, while it is positive to see her, it remains unclear if she is free and if she's able to take make decisions and take actions on her own. mona? >> all right, julia, thank you. now to the killing of ahmaud arbery, the young black man shot to death while running through a neighborhood in georgia. the trial of the three white men accused entering the closing argument phase tomorrow. abc's alex presha joins us from brunswick, georgia, with the very latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: goog, mona. closing arguments will likely take all day monday, and after more than two weeks of testimony, it will be lawyers' last chance to sway a jury in this case centered around race in south georgia. defense attorneys will argue that 25-year-old ahmaud arbery was killed during an attempted citizen's arrest saying the
defendants had reasonable and probable suspicion that arbery had just committed a felony. the prosecution has accused the three of excessive force and singling arbery out because he was black. friday, they argued over what specific charges will be presented to the nearly all-white jury. the judge telling both sides y'all have argued my brain into mush. it follows an eventful week both in and outside of the courtroom here. there was a surprise testimony by travis mcmichael, the 35-year-old teared up as he recounted firing the fatal shots in february of last year saying he feared for his life and admitted arbery posed no physical or verbal threat to him. prosecutors pointed out that with his coast guard training in use of force, mcmichael should have done better, and thursday, hundreds of faith leaders peacefully rallied, a direct pastorinhe courtroom. they arging documts by esday,
but emains uno row the courttht. whit? >> that's been an extraordinary case. all right, alex for us, thank you so much. it's been a week of high-profile cases and joining us now is abc news chief legal analyst, dan abrams. dan, good morning to you. it's always good to have you. let's pick up where alex left off there. the three men on trial in the killing of ahmaud arbery, closing arguments begin tomorrow. what should we expect? >> remember, these are three defendants, so you're going to see three slightly separate arguments for each of them, but basically it's a two-prong defense. number one, as alex points out, they're saying that they were trying to effectuate a citizens arrest under a law that existed at that time in georgia, and number two, travis mcmichael is saying that it was self-defense at the moment that the incident occurred. now prosecutors are going to respond by saying, well, this is the first time that they started talking about this citizen's arrest.
they weren't talking about it back then when they were being interviewed by police immediately after the incident. that's going to be one of the stronger arguments for prosecutors in addition to the question of, you know, why were they chasing him down in this way? so i think that this is not an easy argument for the defense as they head into closing argument. >> and that important note there, three different defendants in that case. so another big case we were watching last week, kyle rittenhouse found not guilty on all charges in the shooting deaths of two men during a protest in wisconsin. that was last year, but what happens next now? could there be civil cases? >> yeah, i think there could be. you may see some of the victims decide to sue kyle rittenhouse. remember, the legal standard in a civil case, much lower than in a criminal case. again and again in the context of this case, i kept talking about how tough the burden is for prosecutors to overcome self-defense beyond a reasonable doubt.
in a civil case, it just has to be negligence. you just have to prove it's more likely than not, and then of course, there's the flip side of it which is that kyle rittenhouse may end up suing people who said things about him that he says weren't accurate. so i definitely think you could see some activity in the civil courts as a result of this case. >> all right, a lot to watch ahead. dan abrams, we always appreciate it, thank you. >> okay, whit. >> gio? whit, now to the president's nearly $2 trillion spending plan just passed by the house. if it becomes law, it would be the biggest expansion to america's social safety net in 50 years. abc's rachel scott has a look at what it could mean for one community and its schoolchildren. >> reporter: this is the line to get to the bathroom at wilkins elementary school in jackson, mississippi. >> okay? >> reporter: here children miss precious class time to use portable restrooms outside. with low water pressure in the building, the toilets are virtually unusable.
should conditions like these be acceptable for any student? >> no, indeed. totally unacceptable. >> reporter: jackson, one of many american cities hoping to receive new federal investments from the infrastructure bill to upgrade their aging water system. it's a problem the biden administration has pledged to address, committing $55 billion to revamp water infrastructure systems nationwide. >> how are y'all doing? >> all: good. >> reporter: this school on a stop for epa administrator michael regan on an environmental justice tour through the south. >> that money comes through epa, and i'm here today because part of my job is ensuring that those resources get to those who need it the most. >> reporter: the mayor of jackson says the $459 million the state may get for water improvements is nowhere near the $2 billion he needs. >> it will not be. i can answer that, you know, very easily. however, it is a start, and we're appreciative of any resources.
>> reporter: 9-year-old kingston lewis sharing the realities of living without reliable water. >> i don't like it because it takes a lot of time throughout the day, and it has an unpleasant scent sometimes when we go outside, and due to the water being down. >> reporter: the superintendent telling abc news improved infrastructure means leveling the playing field. >> everybody is all in, but the answer to the question, are the children getting a fair shake? absolutely not. >> reporter: rachel scott, abc news, jackson, mississippi. >> our thanks to rachel scott there. it's time now for a look at the weather. rob marciano taking a close look at some western wildfires. >> this has been a headline all summer long, and even before that in spring. we're winding down wildfire season, but there are still some burning especially in california. this is the most heartbreaking thing as far as the environment goes. 75% containment on this fire, and lightning sparked this one, but one-fifth of all the giant sequoias have burned as a result
of this fire. we'll see the winds today, and critical fire danger with gusts 30-plus miles per hour in some spots, i think 50 and 60 in others. 75 and 85-degree temperatures, so above average and low levels of humidity of course, and in parts of colorado and montana where winds co lisa: good sunday morning. waking up to some pretty chilly numbers in the north bay. otherwise, 40's and 50's, plenty of sunshine on the way for another unseasonably mild afternoon. it will be dry right on through thanksgiving and beyond into next weekend. upper 60's concorde and oakland today. 71 in san jose. 66 vallejo, 70 in santa rosa. very little change tomorrow, i took a cue from mona this morning. saw her outfit, ran home and got my brown suit. >> as you should. i warned you yesterday and said, do you have any leather in your
closet? maybe a full leather suit. this is good. >> this is a very important moment though actually because rob brings out the macchiato suit as we get deeper into the fall. >> oh. >> noted, mr. marciano. >> i also love the control, the advice you took this morning. >> what you said about my hair. >> all right, rob, thank you so much. we do turn now to your money and the holiday shopping season kicking off early with deals from electronics to exercise gear. abc's becky worley has your ways to save. becky, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. it's already been a really weird lead-up to black friday. the shipping crunch and supply issues have retailers dropping significant deals earlier than ever, so i've picked out a few that are live now and you can jump on them this weekend without fear of buyer's remorse. let's start with this chromebook from lenovo. it was rated the best overall in the category by wirecutter. it's normally $429, but it's fluctuating between $320 and $329 on amazon, the last time i

an oil spill. this is the same area where crews are repairing a damaged pipeline that leaked some 20,000 gallons in early october. also right now, increased holiday demand and ongoing supply issues due to the pandemic have forced public supermarkets to establish purchase limits for certain items. bacon, toilet paper, canned cranberry sauce, pie fillings, sports drinks, they're just some of the items customers can only buy a maximum of two of. no word on when that limit will go away. and the washington spirit are this year's national soccer league champions. bringing the league's ninth season to an end. kelly o'hara scored to give her team the win over the chicago red stars. this is the spirit's first ever league championship, congratulations to them. you played soccer, so they went into overtime. >> that's a long game, 97 minutes, that's for sure. congrats to them. fun to watch. we do start this half hour though with tonight's induction ceremony at the college basketball hall of fame with honors going to the late len bias. the basketball phenom tragically
never getting his chance to play in the nba, and we are hearing from his mother in a rare interview. janai norman here with that story. janai, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning to you. len bias was on the brink of what many agree would have likely been an historic career. this is a guy who went against michael jordan in the acc in the '80s, and it was bias who was named acc tournament champion in 1984, but instead of his historic career, len bias' story has been called one of the saddest what ifs in sports history. >> bias l shoot for the top of the circle -- he's made it from absolutely everywhere tonight. >> reporter: he was a first team all-american. >> len bias with a great game. >> reporter: acc player of the year, back to back in 1985 and 1986, leaving his university of maryland basketball team. >> and there's len bias at the other end! >> reporter: a victory in 1985. >> the boston celtics select len bias from the university of maryland. >> reporter: drafted second pick
overall in the '86 nba draft by the boston celtics. >> there he is, len bias. >> reporter: but before ever playing a single minute in the nba, tragedy struck. two days after being drafted, len bias died of a cocaine overdose in his university dorm room. dr. lonise bias speaking exclusively with "gma" about her son's legacy and his bright future snuffed out before it even began. >> what i saw was my son. i saw my son len bias, but it wasn't until he died that i understood the magnitude of who this man was. >> reporter: lonise saying as she mourned her son's death, it became clear her sorrow was shared. >> i can talk to men and women now and they have tears in their eyes about what happened 35 years ago and the death of this beautiful athlete, this beautiful man.
>> reporter: this afternoon, the final chapter in a storied career cut short. bias will be inducted into the national collegiate basketball hall of fame just three days after what would have been his 58th birthday. following his death, maryland basketball coach lefty driesell spoke to "gma" about the university's star athlete. >> he's a great, fierce competitor on the court and off the court he was a great guy. he had a lot of friends and he worked hard. >> reporter: now after all that time, bias being memorialized as one of the best to ever play the gme, proving as the saying goes that legends never die. and dr. lonise bias is a woman who has suffered immense loss. not only with len's tragic death, but her son jay shot and killed in 1990. she has turned that heartache into messages of hope, and now, so many years later, for len bias to be inducted into the college hall of fame, this for many people in the '80s was one of those where were you moments when they learned about his death.
so this means a lot to a lot of people, guys. >> i love that message of hope. >> and it's so relevant to today because -- i mean, we just hit a new record, 100,000 overdoses in this country. a lot of families can relate to this story. janai, thank you for bringing that to us. >> absolutely. we're going to turn now to rob with the weather. hey, rob. >> because you keep asking for snow -- >> always. >> there you go. >> always, always. >> the shame on your face. here we go. boston, massachusetts, a little bit of snow over the last couple of days. cold air coming in, and this kind of rotated down. that cold air is going to be swinging out, and this front will be swinging east as well. this one, it's basically two storms coming through for this holiday week. one comes through later on tonight and tomorrow, and these are particularly strong, snow, rain behind this thing, and a pacific west storm but the west coast looks to be quiet. cold across parts of the north. for thanksgiving day itself, some rain across parts of the south and here's our friend, the

choose morning flights. >> if you don't mind getting up early, you're much less likely to be affected by a big cancellation event if you are flying out at 7:30 in the morning than flying out at night and that's because you're not waiting on another plane and crew to get in. >> reporter: here's one you probably haven't heard. consider booking a refundable fare as a backup. >> either with miles or points, a plane is taking off two or three hours after your original itinerary. just make sure you keep your eye on the terms of that, and you cancel it in time if your first flight does go off on time. >> that's one i never thought of. just remember, airports are busier than usual right now. you have got staffing shortages and longer lines and you have more documents that need to be checked. at least two hours before, get there. i would say 2 1/2. why not? >> got to have a plan, got to have patience, and be friendly to each other. that's for sure. gio, thank you for that. coming up here on "gma," hitting the supermarket for thanksgiving fixings. fixins? do we say fixins?
