7:02 am
of the country. the storm bringing blizzard conditions, dangerously high winds and tornados. >> more than 150 million americans feeling this storm. sam champion is standing by with your forecast, but let's start here with abc's marcus moore who is right there on the ground in hard-hit columbus, mississippi. marcus, good morning. >> reporter: dan, good morning. it's an astonishing scene here in columbus. those violent winds when they blew through on saturday, leveled this buildings and look at this. left just a couple of walls barely standing. >> oh my goodness, there it is. >> reporter: overnight, severe weather pounding the south. one possible tornado turning deadly in mississippi. a driver capturing this funnel cloud forming and spinning near columbus where that suspected tornado touched down. >> all units take cover. all units take cover. a tornado funnel reported. >> reporter: residents running into this store where they watched the strong winds and t. the lights suddenly going dark. >> we were just crouching down and just praying.
7:03 am
>> reporter: abc news confirming this morning at least one person was killed here. the damage devastating. homes and businesses crumbled. debris everywhere. trees and power lines knocked over. more than 4,000 now without power. a massive tree falling right onto this vehicle. >> god is good. i'm glad to be alive. >> reporter: and over 100 miles away, another possible twister spotted bringing a lightning show with it. in tennessee, neighborhoods under water. a month's worth of rain in one day in knoxville. the torrential downpours prompting dozens of rescues. and in the midwest, the storm bringing blizzard conditions creating dangerous roadways. highways paralyzed, drivers stranded in nebraska. the roadway turning into a crash course with several cars piling up. and back here in mississippi, there were four people inside this building when it collapsed including a 41-year-old woman who sadly passed away from her injuries and the storm that did this was on the ground for a couple of miles at least
7:04 am
according to authorities here and you see it knocked down this brick wall here, and as the sun comes up, crews with the national weather service will work to figure out the scale of the damage here, not only in columbus, but across this region, guys. >> that's really sad. marcus moore, thank you very much. let's get the forecast now as promised. sam champion is in for rob. sam, is the worst of this thing now over? >> the worst part, dan, when we look at, like, tornados and blizzards conditions, we're moving that out during the day today, but there is another component that comes in behind this storm that's going to be tough and that's the wind. let's talk about these records because that tornado you just saw was one of four reported yesterday. we had the blizzard warnings on the board at the same time. des moines comes in with the snowiest february ever because of this storm. knoxville and nashville come in with their wettest february ever because of this storm. now here's what's left on the board today. winter weather advisories, blizzard warnings still out, high wind alerts. we don't have time to go through all of them. watch this storm make its move. it takes snow to the great lakes
7:05 am
and canada, the rain all along the east coast today. here's the tough part of the next 48 hours. it's the wind tonight around the great lakes and today up to 50, 60 miles per hour and tomorrow we move that wind into the east coast as well. so wind, because everything is saturated, guys, trees are going to go down, and we'll lose a lot of power. eva. >> thanks, sam. now the a tragedy in texas. an amazon cargo plane crashes just minutes away from its destination. >> officials say the plane disintegrated on impact and it's unlikely there were any survivors. abc's senior transportation correspondent david kerley is near the crash site where the debris field stretches three-quarters of a mile. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. you can see the staging area behind me and beyond it, the bay where this large aircraft, the wide body 767 crashed. with light now, the investigation and search will resume, and at this point the fbi is involved in this investigation. the last moments of the wide body jet's flight caught by surveillance cameras.
7:06 am
a dive into trinity bay with no mayday. a crash leaving wreckage scattered on the water. >> looking for lost aircraft. it's a heavy boeing 767. >> reporter: in a somewhat unusual but not unprecedented move, the fbi has joined the investigation into the why this 767 flying for amazon went down 30 miles short of the houston airport. the large jet had flown from miami and was descending from 34,000 feet, a routine radio call halfway down. but once reaching 6,000 feet, the jetliner starts a rapid dive slamming into the water of the bay. >> the aircraft was in what i would characterize as a normal descent and at around 6,300 feet, it began what i will characterize as a very, very rapid descent. >> reporter: small pieces of debris of the 26-year-old jet, nothing longer than 50 feet found on the water's surface. atlas air, one of two contractors flying for amazon, says there were three crew members on board.
7:07 am
>> knowing what i saw, i don't believe anybody could survive it. >> reporter: overnight, amazon releasing a statement, our thoughts and prayers are with the flight crew, their families and friends along with the entire team at atlas air during this terrible tragedy. >> no mention of a mayday. 767 is a very reliable airplane. at this hour, it's a mystery as to why this airplane continued its descent all the way into this bay southeast of houston. >> reporter: witnesses tell authorities that the jet hit the water nose first. >> out of the corner of our eye, we seen the plane coming down at a 45-degree angle. >> reporter: this morning, the key question remaining as to why the aircraft plummeted. officials will now look to navigate the muddy marshland for answers. the big question this morning is why did this jetliner dive from 6,000 feet into the water in the bay you see behind me. of course, in these investigations the black boxes, the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder will be very important. the good news here is that the water is fairly shallow and they
7:08 am
should be able to get those boxes. guys? >> a lot of questions. david kerley, thank you. politics now and we are heading into a big week for president donald trump. another one. this morning, the north korean to vietnam for his second nuclear disarmament summit with president trump flanked by an honor guard as you can see here. kim left pyongyang, the capital city, by train for the two-day journey. later a similar train was spotted crossing a bridge into china. the two men are scheduled to meet on wednesday and thursday in hanoi. and, adding to the drama here, while the president is overseas on this high-stakes diplomatic mission, his former fixer, michael cohen, will be testifying publicly before congress on wednesday. as we head into what promises to be another colorful week in the era of trump, let's bring in our chief anchor, george stephanopoulos. >> colorful is one word for it. >> yes, yes. i'm trying to keep it generic. let's start with michael cohen. how much of a threat, if any, does he pose to the president with his public testimony? >> well, what do we know about michael cohen? we know that for many years michael cohen did donald trump's
7:09 am
dirty deeds. he has at admitted that. we know he's going to jail for committing campaign finance felonies that he says he was directed to do by donald trump. if he says that in public on wednesday, that's a big deal. we also know he was working on that trump tower in moscow during the campaign and that he gave false testimony to congress about that, and he says he did that to align himself with the stories of president trump. those are two potentially damaging stories politically for the president. perhaps even more damaging is what could be happening behind the scenes. michael cohen is also testifying in private to the house and senate intelligence committees, perhaps giving over more information about what he did with president trump and we know as well that he is cooperating again with the southern district prosecutors in the southern district of new york on things having to do with the trump organization, including possible irregularities in insurance claims. all of that potential trouble for president trump. >> that is a separate probe. the southern district of new
7:10 am
york, federal prosecutors, that's different from the mueller probe, but there is news overnight, and it has to do with another trump associate, his former campaign chairman, paul manafort. team mueller put out a sentencing memo overnight in which they are preparing the judge to sentence robert mueller -- sorry, paul manafort who they prosecuted on a series of charges and in this memo, they refer to manafort as a hardened criminal who repeatedly and brazenly flouted the law. are there implications here for donald trump? >> we don't know because even though this was an 800-page sentencing memo, perhaps most interesting is what isn't in the memo. it's heavily redacted and they left out all and any information that had to do with ongoing investigations or individuals who haven't yet been charged. they left out any information about why paul manafort told these lies, what he was doing with russians during the campaign. it's hard to know what that means yet for president trump. >> let's talk about "this week" again because there is going to be this incredible split screen moment. you've got cohen testifying in washington and the president is
7:11 am
in vietnam meeting with the leader of north korea. as he goes into this second summit with kim jong-un, what are the stakes for the president? >> the big question is what can be achieved in the second summit. he came out of the first summit saying the nuclear threat is over, that they've agreed to do away with the nuclear weapons and we now know that that hasn't happened. in fact, his top intelligence officials say north korea has no intention of getting rid of its nuclear weapons but can they make progress short of that? continued moratorium on testing, and there is some concern that president trump may be looking for a quick victory here and may concede too much. his aides are a bit concerned about that, but the real -- i think the real import of this is the meeting itself, the fact that we're continuing to have some sort of dialogue with north korea, the idea that we'll get north korea getting rid of its nuclear weapons any time soon is fanciful. >> we've come a long way from fire and fury though.
7:12 am
are you going to be able to fill your show this morning? >> i think so. >> let me tell everybody what's coming up. he's going to be speaking with the house intel committee chair adam schiff and andrew mccabe who is out with a new tell-all book. that's coming up on "this week" later this morning here on abc. george, thank you again. appreciate it. >> thanks, guys. now to the deepening crisis in venezuela. opposition leader juan guaido says he will meet with vice president pence and other regional diplomats on monday. >> guaido says he'll ask the community to keep all options open to oust opposition president nicolas maduro. abc's julia macfarlane has more. >> reporter: violence breaking out along venezuela's borders this weekend as protesters desperate for international aid clashed with blockades. tensions spilling over saturday when u.s.-backed opposition leader juan guaido's deadline to move stockpiles of food and medicine on the border expired. people injured on the colombian border as activists raced to save eight trucks that have been set on fire. look how it's burning, this woman said. the national guard firing tear
7:13 am
gas on protesters. only three out of eight trucks making it across. two of them incinerated. the brazilian government stationing troops along its border where clashes between brazilian and venezuelan soldiers left at least one person dead. demonstrators throwing projectiles at a venezuelan arymy base after two trucks were blocked. overnight, guaido announcing he will meet with vice president mike pence on monday, telling the venezuelan armed forces they owed no loyalty to a government who had food burned in front of starving people. the number of military defectors growing. on saturday colombian officials announcing 60 venezuelan troops crossed the border seeking refuge in colombia but most of the military still loyal to the government. this while massive crowds gathered in the capital in support of maduro saturday night surrounded by posters bearing the demands written in english, trump, hands off venezuela. i will never submit. i will never surrender, he said. meanwhile, secretary of state mike pompeo condemned the
7:14 am
violence by maduro's thugs and said the u.s. was prepared to take action. president trump saying he had not ruled out on armed response. guys? >> julia macfarlane in london. now to robert kraft making his first public appearance since being charged with solicitation of prostitution. >> the patriots owner seen at a pre-oscar party in hollywood as we learn of more high-profile names in that florida sting operation. abc's zachary kiesch reports. >> mr. kraft, do you have a message to your fans? >> reporter: this morning, new pictures of new england patriots owner robert kraft leaving a pre-oscar party in california. tmz capturing the billionaire nfl owner ahead of a looming arrest warrant expected from authorities in florida. just a day earlier investigators saying they caught kraft on camera soliciting prostitution on two occasions at this day spa in jupiter. >> does the video contain mr. kraft inside receiving the alleged acts?
7:15 am
the answer to that is yes. >> reporter: police say they caught more than 300 men in the sting including billionaire equity owner john childs, and john delprete, the reported boyfriend of lpga star, jessica korda and former city agent john havens. the six-month investigation alleges owners of the spa brought women from china and sex workers. >> our concern in this investigation centers around our -- the possibility of victims of human trafficking. >> reporter: kraft saying through a spokesperson, we categorically deny that mr. kraft engaged in any illegal activity. the nfl says they are monitoring the situation and kraft faces possible punishment from the league even if he is found innocent. part of that personal conduct ryucry ksch,ha y. great to see you on a saturday morning. the oscars are almost here, and the focus is now firmly on the dolby theatr as the stars get ready to hit the red carpet for the 91st
