thick of the storm from georgia to massachusetts. we begin with omar villafranca in norfolk, virginia, where the snow is coming down hard. omar, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the city of norfolk is under a blizzard warning, and they haven't had one of these since the 1980s. the city is essentially shut down. city services, schools, even public transportation is all closed today. now, ahead of the storm, the governor of virginia declared a state of emergency overnight on interstate 264. cars became stuck in the snow. the virginia department of transportation has more than 1,500 workers and 1, 400 pieces of equipment work 1g 2-hour shifts, responding to the storm. now, high winds are another major concern. bridges are in a state of freezing. and the chesapeake area has over 90 of them. all have been sprayed with brian to keep them from becoming
7:05 am
sheets of's. the government of the state of maryland has declared a state of emergency for three lower counties. some areas there could see over a foot of snow. at last check of dominion energy, 36 million people are without power because of the storm. that's going to be an issue because temperatures are only expected to get to 32 degrees. if they're lucky, 33 degrees. jeff? >> omar, thank you very much. over 8 inches could fall in new york city. classes are canceled for more than a million public school students. this massive storm is slamming the mid-atlantic states right now. tony dokoupil is in cape may. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, if you want to call it good. it is cold. it's been snowing for hours. they say wind gusts of 30 miles an hour. i can tell you standing here on the beach it feels much stronger than that. did i mention it's cold. about 150 feet out there is
7:06 am
delaware bay. it is actually frozen over. you can walk on it. that is how thick the ice is. there's supposed to be a ferry out there. it hasn't run for a couple of days. they're not sure when it's going to run again. and in new york city, they've got about 8 inches expected, starting with the morning rush. worst time possible, right? 1,500 plows trying to make the city passable. they're working across all five b boroughs. even when the snow is gone, the eastern seaboard is going to be struggling with temperatures struggling to make it into the single digits. it's going to be a very long morning and could be a very long week. norah, back to you. >> tony, thank you so muching. >> tough weather conditions out there. our chief meteorologist lonnie quinn has more on where the weather is headed. good morning. >> good morning. whenever you see a storm showing this common shape, classic
7:07 am
nor'easter brewing. it's the bright blue color around atlantic city showing the highest snowfall rate coming down. how much snow are we going to pick up? washington, d.c., in the 2- to 4-inch range, could be more. new york city, 12 inches. boston, potentially a foot to a foot and a half. portions of maine, could be more than a foot and a half of snow. there could be big winds. that's why you have blizzard conditions. visibility lis than a quarter of a mile. blizzards are possible out there anywhere from north carolina all up into maine. and where you see this orange color around norfolk, virginia, those are winds 60 miles an hour. that's up and down the new england sea coast and long island. if you can't heat your home, how do you stay warm.
7:08 am
alex? >> thanks. the southeast faces dangerous conditions even after the storm moved on. roads are coated in ice after freezing cold overnight. drivers are urged to avoid unnecessary travel. manuel bojorquez is in savannah, georgia, where the temperatures are stuck below freezing. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're at the foot of this bridge which is shut down due to ice as are many other bridges and overpasses like this one right here. it is hard to walk on these streets, let alone drive. many haven't been treated because they don't have the resources here. it is so cold that an amtrak train part tracks because the controls froze. >> stay home. stay off the roadway at all
7:09 am
costs. >> reporter: more than 5 inches of snow were recorded in charleston, making it the city's third snowiest day on record. >> everyone is completely freaking out. as you can see, the town is shut down. >> reporter: more than an inch of snow blanketed savannah. on the city streets, police helped get traffic moving and back in the right direction. >> this is crazy. >> reporter: raven knight said she's never experienced anything like this. >> i really don't know how to drive on a road like this in this type of weather. >> this is the scene at our house. >> reporter: a rare sight in tallahassee, florida, where the city saw its first snowfall in 28 years. >> the last time i saw snow was about -- a long time ago. >> reporter: and so the concern now going forward is the wind and ice could lead to more power outage. in georgia alone, more than 9,000 people are without power right now. temperatures are expected to crawl into the 40s, but they will remain below average for a large part of the southeast
7:10 am
through the weekend. jeff. >> all right, manny, thanks. more than 2,900 flights are canceled today as this winter storm bears north. the severe weather is hampering airports up and down the east coast. kris van cleave is monitoring travel conditions from reagan national airport outside washington. kris. >> reporter: well, good morning. here in the d.c. area, at least 254 flights or so have been canceled already. look at the boards. you can see in charleston, south carolina, there are a lot of cancellations and delays. philadelphia has canceled at least 250 flights. in the new york city area, more than 1,700 flights going through new york's three busiest airports have been grounded. newark is seeing the bulk of the cancellations up there so far. but we expect boston logan,
7:11 am
hartford, and providence airports to see the most. boston alone, 680 flights alone are canceled so far. we expect that to climb. nationwide, american airlines and delta combined have told us they've canceled more than a thousand flights today, already cancel more for tomorrow. the airlines have waiver programs in place so you can travel when the weather's better. the airmens hopes to resume service as the weather improves. as the weather improves, the flights will continue. >> it's only going to get worse as the day moves on. in boston harbor, they're seeing some of the heaviest snow. think of it, blizzards in north carolina and south carolina. the only thing colder than the weather on the east coast is the relationship between president trump and his former chief strategist bannon.
7:12 am
the president's law sernlt a cease and desist order to bannon overnight threatening imminent legal achlkts the letter accuses bannon of making defamatory comments about president trump and his family in a tell-all book. the white house administration is furious and disgusted. bannon accuses trump junior of treason. and he says, quote, it goes right through paul manafort, donald trump, and jared kushner. chip reid is at the white house with more revelations from the book. chip, what a morning. good morning. >> you bet. this bombshell book by author michael wolff has caused a dramatic split between president trump and man who used to be one of his closest political allies. the president said bannon only pretends to have influence to fool a few people with no access
7:13 am
or clue. calling the move treasonous, they say they thought it was a good idea to meet with the foreign government inside trump tower with no lawyers. >> that's a ridiculous accusation. >> reporter: white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders fired back. >> it's a total and complete farce. russian collusion is a farce. >> if anybody's been inconsistent, it's been here >> the passing goes through them, adding they're going to crack don junior like an egg on national tv. >> steve's been a frochbd my for a long time. i like steve a lot. >> that friendship seems to have faded. at one point president trump
7:14 am
fired back, he has nothing to do with me or my presidency. when he was fired, not only did he loose his job but he's lost his mind. bannon took to the radio for an interview. >> i support him day in and day out. >> the book paints an unflattering portrait of the president. he said he didn't want to win the election and assured his wife melania it wouldn't happen. his son told a friend he looked as if he had seen a ghost. melania was full of tears and not of joy. it was said he was no more than semiliterate and quick to lash out. katy walsh said it was like trying to figure out what a child wants. he alleges
7:15 am
wolf had significant interactions and the cbs white house team has seen him frequently. a lot of people are wondering how in the world this happened under this happened. the white house staff will no longer be able to use their personal phones in the west wing. norah? >> all right. thank you. cbs news correspondent and white house correspondent and host of "face the nation" john dickerson. let's start with that news. a crackdown inside the white house led by chief of staff john kelly as the press secretary putting out a statement that the security and integrity of the technology system at the white house is paramount. no more personal devices for anybody, guests or staff. >> well, it is like sort of closing the barn door after the
7:16 am
horse is out of the barn. the book is out. sort of pre-john kelly white house will be a source of discussion for weeks, and also, you know, you can try to crack down. anybody with teenagers knows this. you can try to crack down, but people who want to speak will find ways to speak. why will they want to speak? because in a white house that is having trouble functioning -- and lots of white houses do, but this one has a particular charge, when they feel shut out and disgruntled, they seek a way to get the information out into the world. they don't have do it with digital means. >> there are a lot of gossipy and salacious details in this book. >> that's exactly the right question. there's going to be a lot of back and forth on a lot of tiny little details, but the big picture here is a picture of a white house that is chaotic, of
7:17 am
a president whose impulses entail a lot of front stabbing, back stabbing. they sate was a well oiled machine and everyone was saying things are working perfectly. then we see in the reaction from the book by the president and his staff the kind of over-the-top statements that sort of affirm the underlying story. and there's a context here. this is not the first time people have reported about chaos inside the white house. so it comes in that larger context. so while you say there are a lot of salacious details, the thing to look back at, this is the same office that ronald rang harksd fdr had, and has had episodes that are out of keeping with the other things at the white house. >> how much has it changed pre-kelly versus post-john kelly? >> that's exactly right. clearly john kelly has established some order. lots and lots of people have been fired or let go or pushed
7:18 am
out including steve bannon. there's more ship-shape going on. how much does he operate on his own timetable which nobody can control. we saw recently the president give an interview to "the new york times" that his staff didn't know about. so while there is more organization, there is still the person at the encentse center o helped him get elected but it also caused these problems. >> john, do youly are practical implications as far as the investigation goes. steve bannon quotes that some of what the top aides did was tr s treasono treasonous. >> it's not good for the president because he's spent so much time trying to undermine the investigation. here you have steve bannon saying somebody who had dirt from the russian government was treasonous. it gives validation to what the
7:19 am
president and others were trying to undermine. he's got lots of interviews going on with people in the room. i don't think this book really affects that. he's working on his own timetable. >> thank you so much. the president taunted north korea's leader by claiming he had a bigger and more nuclear power button, but it actually takes more than a button to launch an atachlkt ahead, the look at the nuclear

ahead, three things you should know good morning, i'm rahel solomon. i'm jan carabao, jersey shore is getting hit with snow right now. >> lets get to "eyewitness news" report trang do in atlantic city where a blizzard warning is in effect, good morning. >> good morning, i wish i i cold tell you it is getting better but it is not. you can see judge why we are in the blizzard warning down here just look at this total white out conditions, here on the atlantic city boardwalk. the winds just absolutely whipping here, and it is just conditions have gotten worse and worse throughout the morning, and we have forecast ted that the war of it is right now during morning rush. here on the boardwalk not a lot of traffic, we have been seeing, a ton of, plow drivers coming through here trying to
7:27 am
clear this but it is just really a difficult job, here as we see this snow here is falling down at such a fast rate. for now we are live from the atlantic city boardwalk i'm trang do for cbs-3 "eyewitness news" very visibility so poor there. >> lets send it over to katie. when do you think it will move out. >> it will take until midday but even if the snow is not technically falling from the sky we have blizzard warning until 7:00 p.m. because it is all about, whether it is blowing and drifting, and continues, and also about the wind speed. it is criteria definition that must be met in order for blizzard conditions to continue. storm will be gone and we will be stuck with harsh winds. here it is still bringing in very persistent and intense snowfall bands right over trang do's live shot. further inland it is lighter. we will see a sharp cut off with this but we do still have winter storm warnings posted along i-95. i did a quick check on the cbs-3 sky deck we have half
7:28 am
inch so far so it is much lighter totals but we are hearing, of places that got half foot, already, now, behind all of this, harsh, harsh, cold meisha, we will settle in for next few days. >> yes, so i guess only good thing, katie, only good thing is we are in the seeing as many vehicles on the roadway but if you do get out there that is where bad news is, as well because then we are seeing accident after accident ninety-five north before columbus boulevard this is where we have 12 left lanes blocked there. we have another accident with injuries 39 southbound before paper mill road that is clearing out of the way and another accident new jersey turnpike southbound pennsylvania 195 left lane, rahel and jan over to you. we will have another update at 7:55. i'm rahel solomon. >> get more information at cbs i'm jan

even palm trees are being battered by snow this morning. here's a look from ocean city, maryland, where blizzard conditions are slamming the beach. let it snow, let it snow is not what they're saying this morning. welcome back to "cbs this morning." here are three things you should know this morning. the monster snowstorm pummeling tens of millions of americans has shut down offices in three states. officials in massachusetts, rhode island, and connecticut are telling nonemergency government employees to stay home today. federal offices in washington will be opened after a two-hour delay. president trump plans to meet with senate republicans today to discuss daca, the children brought into the u.s. illegally as children. it's part of a budget deal to
7:31 am
fund the government. gop leaders insist on dealing with immigration issues separately. congress must pass a spending bill by january 19th to avoid a government shutdown. and tobacco giant phillip morris says its new year's resolution is to give up cigarettes. the owner of marlboros and other well known brands ran ads in british newspapers. philip morris wants to replace tobacco products with e-cigarettes and heated tobacco. millions of people are dealing with dangerous wind, ice, and snow. this morning the brunt of the storm will hit eastern massachusetts this afternoon. parts of boston could see more than a foot of snow today with up to 3 inches falling an hour. don dahler is at boston harbor where temperatures are freezing the water. good morning very good morning. the snow has just begun in the boston area, but we've already
7:32 am
seen some amazing things. this is the "uss constitution," the oldest ship in the nation. she's completely encased in ice more than 4 inches thick in some areas. that's been a real problem in some arias. in fact, they had to suspend the commuter ferry system of about 5 5,200 commuter because of the ice. and there was a ferry dock pushed up in the air because of the ice forming underneath it. coastal flooding is also a major concern. high waves might be throwing ice as projectiles, causing a lot of concern. of course, people in this kind of a situation, if there's a weather system also venture out there. yesterday there were surfers out there explored slushy waves.
7:33 am
he did ask people to get off the roads. they want to clear these with the plows and the salt trucks. so there's 500 miles of streets in the boston area, and they want to make sure those are safe for everybody. but, of course, the biggest concern is the wind. they're expecting anywhere between 25 and 65, maybe 75-mile-per-hour winds along the coast and the cape. that, of course, raises the specter of power outages, and with temperatures plunging to zero degrees, the real concern is heating their homes in this area. alex. >> don, thanks. i can say with confidence, aisle never be one of those surfers. the baltimore school system is calling for closings for the rest of the week because there's no heat in the classrooms. schools are closed today. social media shows the students bundled up in winter coats and gloves in class. some say it was so cold they
7:34 am
kept their children home this week. >> it's unbelievable. there are icicles in the classroom. the water jogs are filled with ice. it's inhumane. >> pipes burst filling classrooms with water. temperatures inside dropped as low as 42 degrees. the superintendent said at least six schools have been impacted by the cold. >> if you go out in the hallway, you can see your breath. >> reporter: baltimore city schools are doing their best to keep the buildings as warm as possible, but many of the heating systems just can't keep up. we'll continue to track the storm as it moves up the east coast. this is a look at scituate, massachusetts, as snow is falling fast. president trump this morning tweet thad new talks between north and south korea are a good thing and suggested his stance against north korea made it possible. this week president trump tweeted his nuclear button is much bigger and more powerful
7:35 am
than kim jong-un's. for "60 minutes," david martin visited the military command cent center. he's at the pentagon with what must happen before a nuclear conflict erupts between the u.s. and north korea. >> it's much more complicated than pushing a button. but president trump's tweet that his button is bigger and more powerful than kim jong-un's is not an empty boast. this submarine can carry more nuclear warheads than king jong-un has in his entire arsenal. >> the warheads that can be carried on my missile are extremely competent. >> compared to the bomb that leveled hiroshima. >> much more powerful. >> reporter: freck and his crew
7:36 am
are at the tip of a chain of command which leads all the way back to the president which is never far from a briefcase called the foochblt inside are the codes needed to order the launch of the nuclear weapons. the older would go to the commander of the u.s. strategic command. >> who in the united states government has the authority to order the use of the nuclear weapons? >> only the president of the united states. >> does congress have to approve? >> no, congress does not have to approve. >> so these really are the president's own weapons. >> it's the nation's weapons with the president's authority, yes. >> he's now retired. last year he told a conference he would not carry out an order if it's unnecessary. >> i'm going to say, mr. president, it's not league and he's going to say, what's legal
7:37 am
and he'll come up with a policy. that's the way it works. >> there are only extreme circumstances such as a nuclear attack on the u.s. last year tom boyd told "60 minutes" that kim jong-un has more work to do before he has a weapon that can deliver a nuclear warhead to the american home led. >> probably several more flight tests, but ultimately if they want to have confidence that the system works as intended, they have to flight test it and prove that that re-entry vehicle can survive realistic re-entry conditions. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence estimates that that could happen as early as this year. if and when it does, two nuclear armed countries headed by two unpredictable leaders will be headed on a collision course. norah? >> let me ask you. if one of the chief of staff's top advisers like kelly oppose
7:38 am
the president in london. ing a nuclear weapon, would they have any say to do that or power to do that? >> they're not in the chain of command. it goes from the president to the secretary of defense to the head of u.s. extra teerjic command. they can offer advice, but they can't interpose themselves in that chain of command. >> and ultimately the president has the launch code. >> the president has the launch codes. he cares a little card with him called the biscuit which carries another code, which identifies him as the president. so it's not simply the sound of his voice that gives the order, but it's him identifies himself through that authentication code. >> all right. david, thank you so much. you've heard congress for the first time since the cold war debating that central command and how it's carried out. >> it's an extraordinary moment

8:02 am
i'm norah o'donnell with jeff glor and alex wagner. gayle is enjoying some time off. we've been talking about this, this monster winter storm that's being called a bomb cyclone, and it is slamming the east coast this morning. the massive coastal system is bringing blizzard conditions from virginia to new england. here's a look at conditions in new jersey. the storm is packing heavy snow, ice, and wind gusts of up to 70 miles an hour. >> bomb cyclone or bombogenesis. it's expected to dump a foot of snow. >> blizzard warnings are highlighted here in red. the southeast was already hit with its heaviest snowfall in almost three decades. 6 inches or more fell in parts of georgia and the carolinas. we have a team of correspondents tracking this storm. omar villafranca is in norfolk,
8:03 am
virginia, where the snow is coming down hard. omar, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it started snowing at 10:00 last night and it has not stopped. it's up to my shins. the city of norfolk usually receives about 7 inches for this season, but if everything goes as planned, they may get up to a foot of snow, and that may be the eighth largest recorded total for the city. you may notice the lens fogging up. wind gusts are brutal, up to 60 miles an hour in this area. overnight the storm was causing a major headache on interstate 264. cars had to be dug out or pulled out. virginia has 1,500 people working 12-hour shifts to clean up the snow and the national guard has been authorized to bring in an additional 150 personnel on active duty. other in maryland, drivers along
8:04 am
the shore are being told to avoid unnecessary travel. a blizzard warning is in effect in this area until 1:00. all the snow you see around me that's already on the ground, it's not going anywhere. people seeing it had boater get used to it. they're not going to see temperatures above freezing until monday. >> got the chills actually watching them. it got really, really cold. he's right. it's going to be cold here -- very cold this weekend. >> unrelenting bombogenesis. >> snow has also hit the largest city during the morning rush. the city could receive more than 8 inches. mid-atlantic states are getting slammed right now. tony dokoupil is along the coast in cape may, new jersey, with the wind-driven snow. tony, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, this storm is intensifying here in cape may. when we last checked in, we had
8:05 am
30-mile-an-hour wind gusts. it felt stronger. turns out it was. we could get measurements of 50 miles an hour. it is still snowing. new jersey is expecting up to a foot in this area, and the foot is a deep cold. this is delaware bay. it's frozen over, all the way out to that shadow out there, which is a world war i boat. people have tried to walk there, and these conditions are expected to stretch up through new york city, touching new england. new jersey has had whiteout conditions already. in new england, schools, forget about it. those are closed. 2,000 snow plows and salt trucks are trying to make the city passable. even when the snow is gone, frigid temperatures remain. we're talking daily highs. look at this wind, well below
8:06 am
zero. jeff? >> you said you felt cold then. >> we were worried he was going to blow away. >> nice work out there, tony. >> keep the mittens on. >> lonnie quinn of our station wcbs is tracking the storm and where it is headed next. lonnie, this is large storm. >> without a doubt. it's putting snow down anywhere from the outer banks of north carolina all the way up to southern maine. this is your nor'easter, your bomb psycyclone. washington, d.c., 2 to 4 inches. new york city, 4 to 8. hartford, 12-18. coast ashlgs 16 inches or more. pretty interesting setup. today is your snow day and wind combined. tomorrow, friday, the wind persists. the snow is gone, all right? but the temperatures drop. coldest air of the season for friday and saturday.
8:07 am
now you combine the winds. unbelievable stat to show you right here. we're talking 36 to 48 hours where every town shaded in pink will feel below zero. for you and me, that's 48 hours of feeling like 5 below zero. norah? >> lonnie, thank you. president trump is threatening to sue his former chief strategi strategist. bannon calls a june 2016 campaign meeting with a russian source at trump tower, treasonous and unpatriotic. he suggests robert mueller's investigation into collusion with the campaign is all about money laundering, the president hits back in a statement saying, quote, steve bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency. >> and this morning axios says bannon said he would run for president if the president does
8:08 am
not. michal len, co-founder and executive editor of axios interviewed steve bannon last week. good morning, mike. >> good morning. >> lawsuits, statements, a lot of back-and-forth between the white house and steve bannon or at least from the white house. how problematic is this book for the trump administration. >> we can see from the reaction the fury now is by the president. i'm told yesterday in the west wing, people tried to avoid the president sort of the way you stay away from your dad when he's had it. he was so angry about this book and what did he do? he called lawyers. he called his outside lairs and said what can we do. they've sent a cease and desist letter. as you mentioned at the top, they gave us a statement saying legal action against steve bannon is imminent and the president's lawyers may now go against the author michael wolff. >> but are there tapes of these
8:09 am
conversations? >> there are. and that's going to make it so hard for these people who have been captured with these embarrassing and revealing comments to now deny them. now, a lot of these people thought that they were talking off the record, but what are they going to do now? we hear that michael wolff has dozens of hours of tapes of people from trump world talking about him that in a book gives him an unflattering look. >> katy walsh was quoted in the book saying working with the president was like trying to figure out what a child wants. i know miss walsh has denied that to axios, but there are tapes of miss walsh? >> i don't know of that particular statement, but, yes, we hear that steve bannon -- katy walsh, the former deputy chief of staff are among those taped by michael wolff.
8:10 am
we heard earlier there was little cooperation with michael wolff. michael wolff had unbelievable ak sechls we've been talking to him over many months. the white house said he was formally cleared in to the white house less than 20 times, but for somebody who's going into private areas of the white house including the then chief of staff's auvgs reince priebus's office, that's a lot. and during those early days, we know how much confusion there was. michael wolff would sit in the white house lobby and all of you have seen what the white house lobby is like. everyone comes and goes through there. if you're sitting there waiting for an appointment, you can catch up with a lot of people. michael wolff without get dope from people walking through. sometimes they would walk across the park. >> mike, despite all these bannon comments, he said last night he still supports president trump and he calls him a great man. what do we make of the damage
8:11 am
control that steve bannon is doing right now. >> good luck convincing the president of that. this is a divorce, a severing of ties. the white house knew the book would probably be bad, but they had no idea that steve bannon would say the things that he does. but as you mentioned at the top, he has a comeback plan. since he left the white house, he's been traveling the world, traveling the country, building his own base, and steve has told friends that if the president doesn't run -- so there's no suggestion he would challenge the president, but if the president doesn't run and there's a big field of republicans in 2020, that steve bannon would love to jump into that. now, where steve bannon was probably kidding himself was he also told friends that if the president ran again, bannon would like to run the campaign. well, good luck with that. hard to see steve bannon back in trump tower. >> yeah. i think the divorce is fine.
8:12 am

8:20 am
europe 20% to 30% cheaper than the summer before. and for the summer of 2018, we expect them to be even slower. if you're thinking about exploring barcelona, the food scene in rome, this would be the time to do it this year. >> how far in advance should we be booking? >> it's a question we get asked often. is there a secret to the formula. for looking at the guide, about a month before your trip is a sweet spot and on the other end of the spectrum, if you're traveling to europe or africa, six months in advance. >> and kayak offer s tools. those are the general guidelines. >> what's the best bargain spot for people who have an open map in front of them. >> for sure. we carried a wallet-friendly list based on the kayak data, and americans looking for a bargain spot should think about

them clean but traffic is still moving, slowing at a free pace and better than conditions were earlier when we were at art museum, win was whipping a lot harder in that area but still moderate snow in the city of philadelphia we are live along ben franklin parkway i'm pat gallen for cbs-3 "eyewitness news". jan and rahel back to you. >> slight improvement but accumulating on the road. >> thanks, pat. >> lets send it over to katie for a check of the forecast. >> forecast we are stuck in the thick of things, height of the storm is taking place, through the next couple of hours, as core of the circulation with this rotates past us which we will show you if you didn't have a banner on you this wouldn't know what we are looking at. we are looking at delaware river it looks like a field of ice and snow though because there is so much ice on top of the river. just crazy. what we are going to find throughout the rest of the day certainly is very poor visibility, much like we have at that particular shot we have winter weather advisory in purple, storm warnings in
8:27 am
the pink and blizzard warnings , the dreaded blizzard warnings, down along the shorelines. here's the storm in the entirety, still monster and bearing down on us right now. darker shade indicating intense, more intense snowfall rates, so that is certainly taking place right new through eastern delaware and new jersey, where we already are in some spots have half foot of snow. this is still many hours from being completed. so here's thing even if the snow stops you will have blowing, drifting, wind will continue to whip throughout the day and it will do the same for the next two days, so both friday and saturday despite return of sunshine we will likely feel in better than zero and that is the best , it will feel, through that entire, time frame. that is dangerous coal. we have to clear out snow, in many spots in the next few days so you will to have take care if you must go out in that. >> big headache for people, especially for commuters heading out there we have seen it since four and still seeing

8:32 am
the faster the air rises the more the storm becomes. the rapidly rising air has to be replaced from air outside the storm, so, in essence, they create their own wind and it needs to fw at least 35 miles an hour. the second exponent of a blizzard is visibility less than a quarter of a mile all due to blowing snow. both the wind and decreased visibility has to last for at least three consecutive hours. personally i think it's pretty interesting to note you do not need to have falling snow or large snow totals. when it comes to a bomb cyclone or blizzard, yes, you can have one without the other. they can be very dangerous. here in the northeast, they do tend to go hand in hand. norah? >> lonnie, that may be the best live shot you've ever done for us. well done with the smoke and it
8:33 am
all. let's go outside to see the real fog and the blizzard conditions. tony dokoupil is in cape may, new jersey, which is getting slammed by snow and wind. tony, how are you doing? >> reporter: conditions are getting worse by the minute. the national weather service says the conditions on the road are dangerous and impossible. if i were not wearing goggles, i would not be able to look into the snow. it's a deep down and thorough cold. the bay behind me is delaware basement it's frozen over. there are people out there trying to walk. i want to emphasize i'm in the mid-atlantic. you could be seeing a taste of what i'm getting right now. we've got blizzard warnings all the way up the coast. you could see 50 nilmiles an ho
8:34 am
and 8 inches of snoechlt once this storm moves, the temperatures are still going to be cold and may be getting colder. we're talk single digits, and with the windchill, what's left, it's going to be well below zero. i cannot feel my toes. i hope you guys survive it better than me. back to you, alex. >> we feel for you, brother. stay warm. >> reporter: i will. >> right now it's time to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. the business company fast hijacks your password and covers its tracks. it's a new imposter ad for android. it resembles an uber logger screen and steals the name and password before showing the real uber app so the user won't realize anything is wrong. security advises you only install apps from trusted sources.

8:37 am
this followed reports of disturbing videos targeted at kids. nick loll stoms is editor in chief of "wired magazine." good morning. >> good morning. >> it was up for more than 24 hours. >> and viewed by over 6 million. what happens is it goes up on the site. northbound who saw this would have thought it was offensive and crazy. it went to youtube. a human then approved it and said it was okay. but because of so many reports or some other system it went to somebody else and youtube said, oh, we should take that down. that point is when logan paul took the video down himself. >> when you talk about the people set to northern this, right, 10,000 folks monitoring videos, but there are over 400 hours of video shared on youtube every minute. >> yeah. >> that is daunting. >> right. so there's this huge tension with all of these silicon valley
8:38 am
companies, whether it's a platform which allows people to publish whatever they want and there's no way to control it or a publisher like cbs with ethical standards and guidelines. truly there's somewhere in between. there's a big debate, where in the spectrum are you do. you allow people to publish what they want and have limited looks at it? you can see them moving across the spectrum. youtube's problem, they're probably too close to the platform site. there's a huge advantage to that. if you elementary people publish it as quickly as possible, you have more content. >> how does that score with -- youtube told us the company prohibits violent or gory video in a shocking, distasteful, or disrespective manner. as you say, it made the top ten list. >> there's a policy it's good policy. they should probably have a stronger policy.
