the white house. >> mr. and miss salahi. >> reporter: since then, it's often seen that the salahis have lived their lives in 15 minute increments of fame. on various television shows. and being in several controversies and lawsuits. just yesterday, the salahis were advertising that tv personalty, montel williams would be celebrating the opening of their vineyard. the trouble is, montel said he knew nothing about it. and later, tariq claimed his wife had been kidnapped. a position he held onto, until faced with the facts from the sheriff's department. salahi's lawyer denied that the kidnapping claims were to gain
1:40 am
publicity, which they did. >> there will be no comment from mr. salahi henceforth. >> reporter: if it was a publicity stunt, it sure was an effective one. this latest salahi saga was one of the hottest stories online all day long. >> i wonder if it turned out like he hoped. right now, the rain is falling all across parts of the d.c. metro. what is it looking like overnight, and what about that morning commute? we've got some answers. >> it's going to be wet for some of us in the morning. we have showers and thunderstorms diminishing. but they're still hanging on out to the west. we will start with live doppler 9,000. we do have some moderate rain, nothing severe, but we have moderate rain from frederick, back up into warren and into montgomery county. the lightning strikes, a lot of lightning with this. we have reports from loudoun

1:42 am
answer. >> reporter: the discarded furniture and junk on the streets of huntington are evidence of what happened inside homes here during last week's flooding. >> we had to throw everything upstairs. everything. this is not the first time. >> so now what? obviously the second time in five years, we've had a 100 year storm. >> reporter: residents at a community meeting were told they had two options. >> if if am given less than what i bought for the house, i would be financially devastated, and bankrupt. and i will do everything within my power to make sure that country happen. >> reporter: others see it as the only viable solution. >> your property value will probably be worth more if you go to market, than you would get now.
1:43 am
i think if we do this as an organized community, if we do this together we can get a great deal. we do this individually, you can forget about it. >> reporter: it is unclear what direction this community will choose. what does seem clear, it's going to flood again before there's an answer. the supervisor said if there is a deal with the developers, that deal would require those developers to make certain that residents of the community had access to any new housing. the clock also ticking for dozens of families in woodbridge. first, they lost their homes in flood waters, now they face getting kicked out of a shelter this friday. we're talking about the families who lived at the holly acres mobile home park. last week, 7 feet of water came rushing through their word. the flood ripped apart homes and left a mess of mud and muck. prince william county placed many of these families in shelters. >> i said this is your home
1:44 am

1:46 am
hate to hear. it's happening at very high rates. >> reporter: the survey looked at three different types of abuse. physical, sexual, and e emotional. the findings show 43% of college women experience violence or abuse in a relationship. more than 1 in 5 say they were hit or sexually abused, and more than 1/3 don't know how to get help. >> the statistics are scary also. sexual is one of the most underreported crimes, so the statistics probably aren't accurate, and it's probably worse than we think. >> reporter: according to her, the stigma of being abused keeps victims from speaking up. however, coming furled, and speaking about the abuse is the number 1 key to getting out of the relationship, according to experts. they call it forming a support group. >> i think most people find that once they talk to one person, it gets easier to, you
1:47 am
know, bring others in, and get them as part of your team, who are really backing you up. >> reporter: in all, the research didn't include data on college men being victimized. experts say it does happen. a man shoots a mother point blank in the head, killing her, and then takes his own life, all before the eyes of that woman's 10-year-old boy. that's what police say happened this morning in the 14700 block of shiloh court as investigators stood over the body of brandy jones. distraught family members in disbelieve had to be led away. the child was not hurt. the islandty of the suspect in the killing has not been released. a maryland cemetery providing anything but solace for the families who have plots or have loved ones buried there. that from lynda cox. she visited a few days ago. when she got there, not only
1:48 am
