7:03 am
got under way. >> we are cheering on team usa. we'll be talking about the olympics just ahead. first, we want to begin with this massive storm right here at home. dangerous weather sweeping through the country right now. taking aim at that i-95 corridor. let's take a live look at those roads in rochester. >> definitely dangerous out there. the storm bringing freezing rain from the gulf coast to texas. our team is covering all the angles this morning. we begin with mireya villarreal in dallas, texas, where they got almost two inches of snow which is more than they get in a year, mireya. good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michael. it is definitely a cold one. if you take a look behind me this is interstate 30. this is a major highway in the dfw area that connects dallas to fort worth. normally four or five lanes are open, lots of traffic. as you can see it's only down to one lane. with temperatures expected to stay below freezing, there's no chance for the ice or sleet on
7:04 am
the roadways to have a chance at melting. overnight heavy snow and freezing rain triggering a travel nig ohtmaren highways. ten vehicles colliding on an interstate near houston, texas, after drivers skidded on the icy roads. 14 more involved in a separate crash in austin. vehicle after vehicle wrecked in this 16-car pileup in memphis. six taken to the hospital. several cars like this sliding clear off the roads in the slick conditions. the winter storm dumping more than a foot of snow in parts of the central u.s. with heavier than normal bouts of intensity. ice covered and downed power lines leaving more than 300,000 customers without electricity this morning. more than half of those outages in tennessee. nearly a third in ohio. the nightmare storm also spawning a deadly tornado in rural alabama. one killed, multiple injured. this home destroyed. two pickup trucks submerged close by.
7:05 am
in illinois a driver got stuck on train tracks, escaping just before his vehicle was hit. and back here in texas, rare blanketing snow, the city of plano covered. little bit of good news. the texas electrical grid is holding up for now. the outages are being blamed on downed power lines because of the heavy snow accumulating on trees. also, further out north and to the east the big concern is what we're dealing with in texas, the icy roadways. road conditions especially on that i-95 corridor. cecelia? >> wow, mireya, stay warm out there. we turn to cleveland getting a heavy hit of snow and that's where trevor ault is right now. good morning, trevor. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. so these are the remnants of about 24 hours of constant snowfall with some parts of the region seeing a full foot. look at the impacts on the roads
7:06 am
here. i mean even with the plows basically working nonstop you can see here is the snow piles on the roadside but also the roads are completely blanketed. as soon as a plow game by, the wind was gusting the snow right back into the street. this morning we've got windchills in single digits that could easily fall below zero as temperatures are falling too. a lot of the snow piles are completely frozen. that will make the road cleanup more complicated. as surface temperatures drop, the salt is less effective at melting the ice. so even though now we have the bulk of the snowfall behind us we could easily be looking at another day of treacherous travel. george? >> okay, trevor, thanks very much. the storm grounded thousands of flights again this morning. our transportation correspondent gio benitez is tracking the latest from kennedy airport. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, george. good morning, we are just starting to feel that weather here at jfk and just take a look at the tarmac behind me. plane after plane is just staying put here. already today we're seeing more than 2,700 flight cancellations. just about every major airport in the northeast is affected
7:07 am
today. boston, newark, laguardia and jfk, chicago as well. dallas-fort worth is still struggling this morning after a slew of cancellations yesterday. more than 1,300 just at dfw thursday. in fact, across america yesterday alone, we saw more than 5,200 cancellations. that's the most weather-related cancellations in almost five passengers that are going to have to find new flights today and this weekend. it is a big deal and a big problem. michael? >> very inconvenient, gio. thank you so much. now, let's go to ginger with the latest track as the i-95 corridor braces for ice and a flash freeze. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: michael, we're just barely above freezing and the temperatures are falling so quickly. 20 degrees shaved off in just the last two hours. let's go to the maps. west of us in rochester, close to a foot of snow.
7:08 am
pittsburgh had flooding and blowing snow. then right between, that pink, represents the ice. the ice will be creeping closer to the coast as we go through the late morning and early afternoon. the numbers dropping, those are the temperatures. they're not going to be any warmer. so cold going into saturday morning. we'll be watching for windchills down to birmingham at 20. 17, atlanta. 16, washington, d.c. it's going to be rough tomorrow morning. cecelia? >> dangerous conditions out there. thanks, ginger. we switch gears and turn to vladimir putin arriving in beijing meeting there with china's president this morning as the olympics kick off. this as tensions are rising over a possible russian invasion of ukraine, and the first u.s. troops are now landing in the region. our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell is on the ground in ukraine for us. good morning, ian. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. that's right, lots going on. more diplomacy and talks but interestingly it's vladimir
7:09 am
putin and xi jinping together as russia and china strengthen their ties not only in trade, but also security as this crisis in ukraine still shows no sign of easing. president putin landing in beijing for the start of the olympics and one-on-one talks with president xi. both have strained relations with america. the kremlin claiming china agrees with its security demands though beijing hasn't quite put it like that as the first of 1,700 american paratroopers landing in europe as part of president biden's order to send 3,000 u.s. troops to bolster nato's eastern flank as tensions remain over the russian troop buildup on ukraine's border. meanwhile the biden administration claims the kremlin's plotting a false flag operation to justify an invasion of ukraine. >> one option is the russian government, we think, is planning to stage a fake attack, by ukrainian military or intelligence forces against russian sovereign territory or
7:10 am
against russian speaking people to trere jti their action.>> reporter: the adminis sendg troopsge >> we believe that russia would produce a very graphic propaganda video which would include corpses and actors that would be depicting mourners and images of destroyed locations as well as military equipment at the hands of ukraine or the west. >> reporter: releasing this type of intelligence is unusual. >> this was obviously a calculated risk for the u.s. and for the uk to be able to release this kind of sensitive intelligence. but they figured that it would be better to preempt any pretext that putin would have by staging some sort of action and using it as an excuse to invade ukraine. >> reporter: the kremlin denying the allegations and that it plans to attack, but at the same time its forces continue to mass at the border. nato says it expects russia to deploy as many as 30,000 combat troops along with additional
7:11 am
military troops into belarus, just north of ukraine for planned war games. russian foreign minister lavrov has been speaking saying such claims, the number which keeps growing every day are nonsense but the administration clearly feels otherwise. george? >> ian pannell, thanks. we have new details this morning on the daring raid that an >> reporter: this morning, compound that housed the isis leader crumbled and abandoned after the pentagon says haji abdullah blew himself up, along with his wife and two children as u.s. special operations forces closed in on him. >> in a final act of desperate cowardness, he with no regard to the lives of his own family or others in the building, he chose to blow himself up. >> reporter: the u.s. commandos came in by helicopter after months of intelligence gathering and intricate rehearsals, once on the ground, shouting through
7:12 am
bull horns for people inside to evacuate. that is when the isis leader detonated what the pentagon said was a suicide vest. but that did not end it. the pentagon saying an isis deputy and his wife on the floor below began firing on the u.s. commandos. they returned fire killing the husband and wife. at least one child was also killed. the u.s. was able to evacuate ten people, eight of them children. local syrian groups later taking them to safety. but the special forces did have to blow up and destroy one of the u.s. helicopters on the ground after it suffered mechanical failure. as for the isis leader, his body was left behind, but the teams possible planned attacks. >> i can assure you he was every bit as evil and committed to attacks on the united states and our partners. >> reporter: and even though the
7:13 am
pentagon believes that all of the casualties were caused by abdullah except for that of his deputy and his wife they will still take a closer look at exactly what happened. george? >> that makes sense. martha, thanks very much. michael? now to a stunning turn of events on wall street. facebook's parent company, meta, losing $230 billion as its stock price plunged some 26%, the worst one-day drop in value ever. but meta was not alone. whit johnson is at the new york stock exchange where they are hoping for a rebound. good morning, whit. >> reporter: michael, good morning. meta's losses are dragging down the markets on wall street. the dow, the nasdaq, the s&p 500 all down yesterday. facebook taking the biggest hit, nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars gone.
7:14 am
that's more than the total valuation of most public companies. for mark zuckerberg it's an estimated personal loss of about $30 million. michael? >> a lot of money there, whit. but was there different reasons why facebook is struggling? >> reporter: the company poured about $10 billion in building the metaverse, it's visual reality vision for the internet. facebook citing changes to apple, which facebook says will cost about $10 billion in advertising. zuckerberg acknowledging the company is struggling to compete with tiktok. the biggest company is that facebook reported its first ever loss in users, losing about 1 million daily active users in the last quarter of 2021. michael? >> sure does causes alarm for them. thank you so much. george?
7:15 am
we turn to the olympics now the opening ceremony happening in china. a high energy event and maggie rulli is on the scene in beijing for all of it. good morning, maggie. >> reporter: hey, george, come on, hard not to feel the energy right now. just moments ago the sky was lit up with fireworks and behind me the opening ceremonies are going on. inside the bird's nest there are athletes from all over the world marching in the parade of nations. while everything was significantly scaled back because of covid, guys, you can still feel it. this, g pic spirit is here. ceremony already under way. taking place at the famed bird's nest in beijing. the same location as the 2008 opening ceremony for the summer games, but this year will be very different. huge drop from the 15,000 in a 2008, and this time, most of them will be teens. the length also much shorter. a whopping four hours in 2008 cut way down to just 100 minutes because it's so cold and because of covid. the event not open to the

7:37 am
where her late husband prince philip spent much of his retirement. parties are planned for this summer when the uk will come together to say thank you. >> i think there will be hope we will see her in some capacity over this weekend because this is a huge milestone and, of course, her motto famously is i have to be seen to be believed. >> reporter: of course, we haven't seen the queen in public since october when she was hospitalized, so folks here in the uk are extra excited to celebrate her platinum jubilee this summer. a four-day holiday and party here at buckingham palace, it's going to be a lot of partying here in the uk. george? >> coming up, okay, will, thanks very much. let's bring in our royal contributor robert jobson. thank you for joining us again this morning. longest reigning monarch in british history, this weekend a time for reflection on that. >> well, yeah, but she's much more really than just longevity as she would say herself. she's achieved an awful lot in that period of time. it's a time of reflection. her father died all those years ago when she was in kenya on an
7:38 am
official tour and had to come back as the queen. he was only 56. but the reality is she's much more than the fact that she's been living a long time. she's modernized the monarchy. she's been involved in many, many major and serious world events and seen as a sort of stalwart really i think on the world stage in terms of head of state. so i think that she's somebody that has created a special moment for herself in these 70 years but still has a few years left to go. >> what is your sense of how she'll mark this weekend? >> i think she'll be very quiet. she's at wood farm which is a lot smaller than the sandringham estate where prince philip was spent his retirement. she'll be there reflecting. it's right by the sea.
7:39 am
so i'm sure she'll be out walking if she can and spending a quiet time. she will be on the phone i'm sure to her children. there will be, i'm sure, a message that will be released by the palace on behalf of the queen for the jubilee, and i think there's going to be photographs of her looking at jubilee presents, i understand, or something like that that's already been taken while she was at windsor. that will be released to the media. will we see her live? probably not unless she is pictured going to church. that is probably unlikely, though. >> as will was saying the real celebrations will be this summer, the jubilee celebrations. what should we expect there? >> well, there will be more of the same. years ago i was around for the silver jubilee as a young lad and remember us all having parties in the streets, all the communities get together. put a big table for the kids in the streets so they all get together and chat and have a party for the youngsters mainly. all goes back to the coronation when there were parties in the streets for that. but really there will be a service of thanksgiving at the cathedral which she will attend.
7:40 am
there will be a party at the palace too but i think one of the most important things will be the big jubilee pageant which is very british, very sort of old fashioned going ban to medieval times really and also there's going to be the queen at the darby which she's never had a winner in the whole time she's been there in terms of being a racehorse owner and it will be quite a fitting year for her horse to romp home so i'll have a few dollars on that. >> maybe somebody should work something out behind the scenes on that one. robert jobson, thanks very much. cecelia? coming up an important headline, the new at-home covid test warning. dr. ashton is here standing by. stay with us. i could've waited to tell my doctor my heart was racing just making spaghetti... but i didn't wait. i could've delayed telling my doctor i was short of breath just reading a book... but i didn't wait. they told their doctors. and found out they had... atrial fibrillation. a condition which makes it about five times more likely to have a stroke.

7:45 am
potential for some irritation or in the case of maybe a child or a toddler some toxicity. >> you have a couple of the tests here. show us what you're talking about. >> it comes down to these which are -- they can look like eye drops and this re-agent which is how you actually process the test with some drops. you know, this is only meant to go in the test kit so the alert that has gone out from some poison control centers around the country is really about that re-agent, those chemicals causing some potential for toxicity especially when it comes to the eye. >> and kids too, right? >> yes. >> what's the advice you want people to know? >> well, when we get these at home and now it's a sign of the times, right? we're all going to be getting some of these at-home rapid tests, either purchased or sent to us for free. store them in a secure place. when you do them you want to read the instructions closely and follow those directions. those can be difficult even for medical providers. and if you get any contact with

to get as many kids vaccinated as possible to loosen masking protocol. george. >> erielle reshef, thanks. let's bring in rachel simmons, thanks for joining us. what advice do you have for parents of children struggling with these masks? >> yeah, i think teach them mindfulness exercises. a big favorite in our house is practices feeling your feet on the floor. close your eyes, turn all your attention to the bottoms of your feet. it is an instant relaxer. we also know that when our kids have a plan for who they can go see, what they can do when they get stressed out that research tells us they will have the tools to deal with the situation when it comes up so make a plan. and try to pack a calming care package. a little shield for them throughout the day, a fidget toy, a note, a mint, something that will make them feel calm when in school and getting upset. >> dealing with the school. parents have to deal with schools' rules that they don't agree with. >> yeah, so i've worked with schools a long time. if you're difficult to deal with
8:18 am
as a parent it will be harder to get heard so don't send emails late at night. be a partner to the school. show your kids that you can respect someone even when you disagree. model respectful protest and remember you're more likely to get heard if you have others standing with you. >> one of the biggest problems is confusion. the world is changing all the time. >> it's so true, and don't you think one of the best parenting lessons is everything changes. everything, our feelings, friendships, ow lives so this is a skill our kids need. when they learn how to roll with the punches it will help them at every age of their life and in every area of their lives. >> rachel, thanks very much. we've been talking about wearing red. raising awareness for women's cardiovascular health. heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the united states and now there is a new study that shows loneliness and isolation can actually increase your risk. dr. ashton is here to break it down. tell us what jumps out. >> this is the study, cecilia, just out in jama network
8:19 am
research done at the facility they looked at 57,000 women ages 56 to 68, and they wanted to find out whether loneliness or social isolation or both had an effect on their associated risk of heart disease and what they found if you look at their numbers, pretty significant. women who experience loneliness had a 5% increase in their risk of cardiovascular disease if they experienced social isolation, that risk was up by 8% and if they had both 13% to 27% increase risk and important to note you can be socially isolated and not lonely and you could be lonely and not socially isolated. >> such an important conversation given the times we're in with covid and how we're still socially distanced. do we know why this happens and what can we do to sort of fight that? >> that's the interest thing, the mechanism, the theory. there is some cellular physiology behind it that social isolation and loneliness can cause an oxidative stress leading to inflammation that
8:20 am
affects the brain, pituitary gland, adrenal, hormonal access and not good for our cardiovascular system and behaviors if you're lonely and/or socially isolated can increase the risk but i think the key is what we can do about it so a game plan for these bizarre times, first of all, you do want to build a good social support system whether in person or online that can be done digitally and virtually and practice, of course, good diet and exercise. so critical in terms of lowering our risk for heart disease and deal with those other risks like your blood pressure, high ldl cholesterol and get a plan in place with your health care provider because prevention can tackle 80% of heart disease. >> i know we talk about ourselves. what do we do? >> be involved. i happen to be the daughter of a cardiologist so this is literally in my blood. reach out to them even if it's not your parent, someone alone

8:40 am
financial myths and strategies. and, kezia, we'll get started because according to mckenzie institute for black economic mobility black families have that white families has.ealth - why does this exist for black americans? >> good morning, michael and good morning, america. one generation gets access to assets and it's incumbent upon them to pass it down to the next generation and the next generation gets assets and passes that down to the next generation, unfortunately black families and black people have not as much access to assets at other families and see black wealth projected to be zero by 2053 and also the median network for black households is just $24,000 while the median net worth for white households is $188,000. it's not that black people are not working hard. it's not that we're not earning
8:41 am
income, it's not that we're disinterested in wealth acquisition but there are laws and policies providing head start for some families but not black families. >> how do we fix it? >> a great question as well. one, we need to make sure that black entrepreneurs get access to financial resources. according to the national bureau of economic research, 41% of black owned businesses are expected to close because of the pandemic. and so we need to make sure that we keep black business doors open because black entrepreneurs are more likely to create black jobs and also give back to black communities. we also need to buy from black entrepreneurs even outside of protests. we need to make that a daily practice and teach financial literally in school. they can't just know math and english. you need to know your math and english but teach things like investing and credit and entrepreneurship.

8:43 am
earn income and once you earn that income, you want to put that to work in investing in financial instruments like mutual funds that own large mid-size and also small companies. here's the great thing, because you're getting started early, that means you can benefit from compound interest. that means that your money is going to work for you every single day. now, the second thing that i will recommend is a 529 college savings plan. that allows for you to save and invest towards your higher educational goals. now, here's the thing. the money grows tax-free and you can use that to benefit any other children you might have in the future and your family can help out with contributions along the way. >> and, dwight, great answer to that question. dwight, you're up next. what's your question? >> thank you so much, michael. my name is dwight james iii. i'm a recent graduate of florida state university. though i work full time i also have a business. i want to know how can i expand
8:44 am
my income streams in order to make more money? >> okay, good morning, dwight. the first thing i want to say if you don't have multiple streams of income you are hustling backwards. write down your skills, what are those things that you are good at? videography, photography then i want to you match those skills with gigs inside of the gig economy where people are looking for skilled labor to complete short-term projects. so the gig economy, you can visit websites like fiver or candy and you can run errands for folks and get paid for it. let's say you are really good at finding those things that are cheap and selling them at a higher price, you can sell them through amazon's fulfillment program on their website. you want to leverage your most valuable resource which is time on evenings and weekends. 9 to 5 could pay the bills but 6
