7:02 am
something that will make you feel warm and fuzzy. we're not getting that with the weather. that bitter cold not letting up at all. more winter weather is on the way. you're looking at snowy conditions in minneapolis just moments ago. look at this picture from our weather team. this is a fountain in new york city almost completely frozen over. it actually looks completely frozen over. >> it is frozen. it does look a little beautiful, but i would rather be inside. >> watching it from here. >> exactly. we'll begin this morning with that deadly freeze gripping so much of the country. the state of emergency, record cold and snow making holiday travel a danger for millions as calls for help to aaa sore, and abc's alex perez is in erie, pennsylvania where the national guard has been called to help dig out residents under 6 feet of snow. good morning to you, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. when you get that much snow, you run out of places to put it all. that's what areas here in
7:03 am
officials dealing with mounds of snow that are dealicars buried and these owners can't get to them. from roads to runways, winter weather wreaking havoc all over the united states. kansas city, more than 40 accidents due to icy roads. icy conditions also turning runways into rinks. a plane skidding off the runway in indiana. the same thing happening in pittsburgh. bitter temperatures and record snowfall crippling the great lakes. erie, pennsylvania brought to a halt this week, buried under more than 65 inch of snow. even this snowplow got stuck. >> today we'll be out probably 10, 15 hours easily. we have been out since 2:00 in the morning. >> reporter: the city now bracing itself for another 10 inches of snow friday into saturday. oswego county bearing the brunt of the deep freeze under a state of emergency. >> we really got hit this year.
7:04 am
city, this fountain turning into an ice sculpture. the coast guard breaking up ice in green bay. and just to give you an idea of how much snow we are actually talking about here, erie gets about 100 inches of snow all winter. so far, they have gotten 102 inches just in december alone. paula? >> jaw-dropping numbers. 102 inches alone in december. all right, alex. we'll send you shovels and hot chocolate by the way. we turn to rob marciano. is there any relief in sight from this bitter cold? >> it's only going to get worse. i'm sorry to say. it will be a long duration. they have had a long one near minneapolis. the falls there, single-digit highs, and it's freezing the rivers and rapids there. we have windchill warnings and watches. this is dangerous stuff over the next two days. check out these numbers. 15 below in
7:05 am
here in new york. i'm glad to be inside. we will have another surge of cold air in half the country. 11 degrees, the windchill of minus 4. that could be the coldest since 1962. >> stop looking so happy about it, please. three words you don't want to hear. long duration event. >> with a smile on his face. >> thank you, robert. now to politics, and alabama republican roy moore filing a lawsuit to block the senate election results alleging fraud. abc's stephanie ramos is on the story in washington this morning. stephanie, good morning to you. >> reporter: dan, good morning. roy moore just won't give up. overnight in alabama, the moore campaign filed a last-minute complaint to prevent his loss from becoming official. he has refused to concede since the december 12th vote which he lost by about 20,000
7:06 am
moore filed his complaint seeking a temporary restraining order to delay the certification alleging potential election fraud. that altered the outcome of the election. he says, this is not a republican or democrat issue as election interestingty should matter to everyone. the board is scheduled to meet this afternoon to certify jones' victory. the board meeting will take place as planned and doug jones will be sworn in by vice president pence on the 3rd of january. state officials said last week they have found no evidence of voter fraud in the senate race. in moore's complaint though, he also says he took a polygraph over the sexual misconduct allegations against him, and he says those results prove he did not know any of those women, dan. >> just to put a fine point on this, these last-minute maneuvers are not expected to delay the certification of doug jones' win? >> reporter: not really, dan. the secretary of state
7:07 am
unlikely that jones would not be certified as the winner of that election. dan. >> this election in alabama continues to generate controversy. thank you very much. we appreciate your reporting. paula, over to you. >> possibly closure as stephanie said. president trump stirring up controversy on his working vacation in florida, touting his legislative successes. all as his former campaign manager faces sexual assault allegations. kenneth moton has the very latest. good morning to you, kenneth. >> reporter: good morning, paula. it was a nice gesture. president trump taking a break to thank firefighters at a local fire station, but the president spent most of his time in front of the cameras talking about his first year in office. president trump's surprise visit. >> you do a fantastic job, so we wanted to thank you very much. >> reporter: the president stopping by a west palm beach re
7:08 am
record. >> we have signed more legislation than anybody. broke the record. >> reporter: that claim, false. president trump has signed the least amount of bills than any president at this point in office. we catch glimpses of him playing golf nearly every day of his vacation. but a box truck blocked the view of the president hitting the lakes. corey lewandowski is on defense, now facing a sexual assault allegation. a trump supporter who wore a make america great again picture tweeted this picture. she said it was taken seconds before lewandowski slapped her behind not once, but twice. she was shocked, she wrote. she told abc news, if lewandowski, would, quote, apologize, that's all i want. lewandowski, a contributor with the fox
7:09 am
the allegations. >> i'm not here to speak for joy, but i'm here to speak for me, and what i will do is let the process play forward. >> reporter: it's not the first time lewandowski has faced legal trouble. during the campaign, he was involved in a physical altercation grabbing a reporter by the arm, but the misdemeanor battery charge was dropped. >> thank you, we appreciate your reporting. let's bring in our chief political analyst, matthew dowd. good morning. let's talk about this lewandowski case. the president appears to be close to the accuser and the accused here. how does he handle this, especially because he has his own accusers? >> reporter: we >> well, this is a difficult spot for the president to be in. this is like "pirates of the caribbean" where all these characters are surrounding him, and they have problems. we know what happened with paul manafort, and the candidate he endorsed in alabama. a series of folks, in surrounding this world, and in the end, the president is barbo barbosa,
7:10 am
big as corey lewandowski. it's a difficulty that the white house is in. >> i knew some cultural references would be thrown in this morning. let's talk about the president specifically, and his claim that he repeated that he has signed more legislation than any other president. so it is absolutely true that trump has some big wins under his belt, including the tax bill that just went through, but it's not true. it's verifiably false that he signed the most legislation. why do you think he keeps saying this? >> i'm just shocked that the president exaggerates like this. we haven't seen this before from him. in politics, we have seen all presidents exaggerate, and probably stretch the truth in this, but this president, when you look at the averages of this president, this president exaggerates or makes stuff up an average of five times a day. it has become commonplace in the presidency. he is sort of the olympic champion of this kind of stuff, and he continues to do it, and my guess is for the next
7:11 am
two years, three years, he will continue to do it. >> hi, matt. it's paula. good morning to you. >> hey, paula. >> there is a lot of uncertainty with the tax bill that dan brought up. what should you know if you are one of the many people rushing to make those deductions that will soon disappear with the tax law taking effect? specifically property taxes. >> sure. you have a major tax reform change through at the last minute in a rushed manner right before the new year. we have the law of unintended consequences and this is the first one we'll see, and we'll see more. i paid my property taxes last week for 2017. those are still deductible because i was billed, assessed and it was all for 2017. you cannot deduct those expenses for 2018 unless you have been billed and assessed in 2017, and pay it in 2017. we need to look at if you pay 2017, you're fine.
7:12 am
>> and it's really up to the municipali municipality, the local municipality to decide. we tried to pre-pay 2018, and they said no. it's up to the jurisdiction as well. >> as i said, this is the law of unintended consequences and we'll see more of this when you see major changes in a tax bill. >> matt dowd, thanks so much. we want to move now to the airport security scare, raising questions about safety in the skies after a tokyo-bound plane was forced to turn around mid flight when an unauthorized passenger was found on board. john legend and chrissy teigen were delayed a total of 15 hours. matt gutman is at l.a.x. to tell us what happened. good morning, matt. >> reporter: sources tell us which was likely not a mistake. they say one of two brothers with very similar names likely used a duplicate boarding pass to get on the plane, and then flight attendants didn't realize
7:13 am
board until the flight was halfway to tokyo, which is one reason they are calling this the flight to nowhere. this morning, the fbi is weighing criminal charges against a pair of brothers who somehow got on flight 175, los angeles to tokyo, using a single boarding pass. the so-called flight to nowhere took off from los angeles at noon on wednesday and just four hours later, boomeranged back when flight attendants discovered the possible stowaway. it turned out to be a 4,000-mile detour. overnight, we learned the brothers have nearly identical names and used a duplicate boarding pass. one had a legitimate ticket for flight 175, and the other brother had a legitimate ticket to tokyo, but on a different flight on a different airline. >> once we get those answers, then you can kind of reverse engineer the process and make sure you don't let that occur again. >> reporter: and er
7:14 am
hours delayed, that plane finally unloaded 208 very frustrated passengers in tokyo. >> mostly tired and pretty angry. >> pretty upset. >> definitely disappointed. >> reporter: abc news was there meeting honeymooners. >> there's no competition to give us back that day. >> reporter: there was also a very prominent tweeter, supermodel chrissy teigen. >> thank you for this awesome vacation, babe. >> reporter: her tweet storm went viral. now she is asking, i just need to know why we couldn't have flown to tokyo, and et settled s one person's mistake? the company apologized for passengers' inconvenience. now being a stowaway is a federal crime. it's punishable by up to five years in prison, and
7:15 am
authorities are poring over surveillance video. but the airline could face hefty fines for allowing that passenger on board, and failing to make an accurate head count. they have offered all those passengers a $265 or thereabout voucher. if you are in the middle seat, i don't know if that cuts it. >> thank you. now to the dramatic rescue caught on bodycam. officers pulling teenagers from an overturned vehicle that burst into flames, and eva pilgrim has the story on how these officers risked their own lives. >> back up. the car is on fire! back up! >> reporter: a fiery car crash, three teens inside, four milwaukee police officers jumping into action. >> when we saw the car up in flames and we saw the two kids in the back unconscious, we knew we had to get them out. >> reporter: this car upside down afterit
7:16 am
pole. the bodycam capturing the rush to get the two teens inside. you see an officer tap on the window yelling. >> crawl! >> reporter: when no one comes out, one of the officers goes in, pulling the teen from the car, dragging him away. >> we started getting people out as quick as we could, knowing that was our job right then and there. >> reporter: the fire growing. the officers go back in, getting a second teen out, moving him to safety. >> come on. >> reporter: another teen was able to get out on his own. all three were taken to the hospital. and these same officers had actually tried to pull over this car for speeding just a short time before the accident. it didn't stop, so the driver will face charges for not stopping and for reckless driving. >> eva, thanks. and now to the big money that's up for grabs after last night's lottery drawing. still no powerball winners
7:17 am
of massive multimillion dollar jackpots that are sparking lottery fever this week, and abc's t.j. holmes is here with us. did you buy your ticket? >> no, because i'm not going to win. here we go again with this. the powerball, up to $384 million. if you take the cash, buy out. that's $239 million. you're not going to win that. megamillions, $236 million, and if you pay it out, $191 million. they have been rolling over, and i have been doing this since october now, and they have not had a winner, and you're not going to win, folks. your odds are great. everyone wants this warm, fuzzy story about the lottery. look at your face. your hopes and dreams. >> you dashed all of them. >> if you want to bring nihilistic sarcasm, absolutely. here's how jaded we are. someone won $4 million on the
7:18 am
drawing this week, so everyone was disappointed. were there any other winners? >> congratulations, folks. there were 1.3 million winners last night, and overwhelmingly most of them won $4. that means you doubled your winnings. congratulations. there was somebody that won $2 million in georgia last night, but overwhelmingly, most people won a few bucks. >> you need a hug, t.j. >> welcome to our new segment, keeping it real with t.j. continuing the keeping it real theme, let's sends things over to rob marciano. >> being inside is what makes me happy. i won the lottery today by staying inside for sure. look at new york, between watertown and syracuse, and they had to dig a woman out of her home. more lake-effect snow after more cold there. time for our snowy cities brought to you by burlington.

problem, and 34% to 60% of marijuana users continue use during pregnancy. so taken together, these numbers really get our attention. >> so what should pregnant women know about the possible risks and the dangers for their unborn child if they are going to continue the marijuana use? >> well, to be clear, acog, which is our national organization, is explicit. there is no safe use of marijuana at all during pregnancy or post-partum if you are breast-feeding. we think there is the possibility that marijuana use can affect the development of the brain, and there have been studies that have shown that women who are pregnant who use marijuana weekly are at increased risk for having what we call a low birth weight baby, and that's having a baby that's less than 5 1/2 pounds, and that carries its own risks. yes, we need more data, and yes, women need for options for
8:16 am
official recommendations are crystal clear. do not use marijuana during pregnancy. >> as a guide, what advice do you have for women if they have used pot recently? >> i think pregnant women can't be afraid to talk to their obstetrician or midwife about this. if you are using, or if you have used at any point in your pregnan pregnancy, stop immediately. discuss this with your health care provider, and listen, we have to err on the side of caution. you don't want to roll the dice with one baby or two babies and so, you know, at this point, the bottom line is no need for weed when you talk about pregnancy. >> okay. great advice, and interesting study. thank you, dr. jen. let's send things over to dan. >> thank you, paula and jen. switching gears to brand-new research from consumer reports on frozen pizzas as we head into prime footballen is, and count down to the super bowl. more people ever will be eating
