7:02 am
take a look at this, the radar lighting up at the very moment the twisters hit. ripping apart homes and businesses on the ground. meteorologist indra petersons has more on this. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. we already have reports of four tornadoes out there. took many residents off guard as they occurred through the overnight hours. the west coast of florida suffering after an outbreak of tornadoes. >> hazard, 70 mile-an-hour wind gusts. source, radar indicated. >> reporter: four reportedly touching down in a 25-mile radius. homes destroyed by at least 80 mile per hour winds. firefighters rummage through the wreckage and report multiple rescues in siesta key. >> we got the house here, we noticed there were two victims. the first victim was easily removed with the ladder. the second victim was trapped in her bedroom. underneath her roof. >> reporter: both victims were rescued just suffering minor injuries. according to florida power and
7:03 am
light, there are nearly 90,000 power outages in the area. roofs ripped off multiple homes. cars covered by leftover debris. you can see that squall line is still out there this morning. we'll have to continue to monitor this. very strong winds, in addition to that tornado threat, naples had a wind gust of 80 miles per hour. keys gusting to 40 miles per hour. >> you can see that slight risk still in the region this morning. we'll continue to monitor the squall line to see whether or not it will still be extended. it will make its up the coastline. that same system on the backside of it, you'll be looking at the threat for snow. flurries in places like d.c., even new york city. but remember, we need to go back down to the south, where we had that heavy rain yesterday in florida. another one to two inches of snow meaning flooding. >> okay, thanks. let's get to our other big story this morning, the campaign trail kicking into overdrive,
7:04 am
the friendship between donald trump and ted cruz is officially over, that heated battle hotter than ever. but now, the democrats are just a few hours away from a face-off of their own in a big debate tonight. abc's mary bruce right there in south carolina covering it all. mary, good morning. >> reporter: hi, cecilia, good morning. well, just days ago they seemed to be friend but now with iowa caucuses two weeks away and trump and cruz neck and neck in the early states, the republican front-runners are locked in an all-out slugfest. donald trump and ted cruz are going to the mat in a war of words in front of the campaign and on twitter. trump is slamming cruz in a barrage of tweets, now calling him a hypocrite. also posting this photo, asking, is this the new york that ted cruz is talking about and demeaning? and he blasted him for not disclosing a loan from goldman sachs. >> he didn't want the voters to
7:05 am
know that he's totally controlled by citi bank and by goldman sachs. >> reporter: cruz fired back. >> i think in terms of a commander-in-chief, we ought to have someone who's not springing out of bed to tweet. >> reporter: south carolina, where both front-runners appeared at a tea party convention, trump's attacks did not go over all. >> excuse me, he didn't bank loans. say whatever you want he didn't report bank loans, that's okay. >> reporter: on the democratic side, the mood was a little more lighthearted. as the candidates geared up for tonight's debate. >> i'm certainly pleased to share this podium with my distinguished opponents. >> reporter: but the pleasantries are not expected to last long. >> we agree on a lot but we do have differences. i'm sure we'll explore those more at the debate. >> reporter: with the democratic race tightening, the candidates have been sharpening their attacks. >> under a sanders'
7:06 am
administration, every democratic party in the united states of america will get the resources it needs. >> reporter: now, the stakes for the democratic debate here tonight are huge. clinton and sanders have butted heads in the past. be with temperatures rising out on the campaign trail and their poll numbers narrowing, everybody will be watching to see how negative they go, dan. let's get back to the complete evaporation of the trump/cruz. if you think trump was tough, check out what trump said in this interview with abc chief anchor george stephanopoulos. >> he's doubled down on this issue of new york values. he lumped you in yesterday with hillary clinton, andrew cuomo, and bill de blasio and he said he apologizes to the millions let down by liberal politics. >> the truth is he's a nasty guy. he was nice to me. i knew it. i'm saying okay ted, let's go kid. but he's a nasty guy, nobody
7:07 am
likes him, nobody in congress likes him. he's a very -- he's got a edge that's not good. you can't make deals with people like that. it's not a good thing for the country. very nasty guy. >> okay, and george is here now. george, you and i -- >> the topic sentence. >> i'm sure there was more. we sat on in these very chairs on a sunday morning after some eye-popping comment from donald trump. i've asked the question, has he gone too far? has he crossed the line something apparently not. however i'm going to ask it again because he got booed at that tea party event. so, i'm wondering, is there a real risk for him in attacking cruz repeatedly? >> no question there's a risk. you're right, in south carolina. as we have seen, every time that donald trump tangles with someone so far, he's come out the winner. whether, you know, whether it's jeb bush or ben carson, all of these attacks somehow seem to stick. now, we'll see if the attacks that donald trump has started
7:08 am
now stick as well. cruz is giving no quarter. he'll come back at donald trump. it's going the play out in iowa. >> cruz definitely not low energy. the democratic side, big debate tonight, the polls are getting tighter, does hillary clinton have to sharper her edge with bernie sanders? >> she's been doing it all week long, she's done it on health care, on guns and on electability. and she'll keep it up. she knows she's in a real fight. right now, sanders fighting right back as well, talking about hillary clinton's ties to wall street. the same thing happening now. now, some people, clinton allies said she waited too long to take on bernie sanders. now is the time. she's doing it at a time where it looked like bernie sanders has pulled ahead in iowa. although it's very close. he's ahead in new hampshire. she still holds on a national lead.
7:09 am
in south carolina where they're having a debate tonight very strong for hillary clinton. >> george, thank you. i want to remind everyone, george has a big show this morning, he'll be speaking with hillary clinton and of course you can see much more with his exclusive interview with donald trump, that's later this morning on "this week" right here on abc. cecilia. but we do now turn to that stunning turn of developments in u.s./iran relations. five american prisoners released, soon to be on their way home to freedom. that prisoner swap followed by a landmark nuclear deal sealed. and economic sanctions against tehran lifted. abc chief white house correspondent jonathan karl is here with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. three of these americans were held longer than those taken hostage in 1979. their release this morning comes just as that nuclear deal goes into effect, freeing up hundreds -- tens of billions of dollars for the iranian government. finally free, ending months of anguish for five americans trapped behind bars in iran.
7:10 am
>> we have received confirmation that five americans who had been unjustly detained in iran have been released from custody. >> reporter: one of the released american journalist jason rezaian, the 39-year-old detained for 18 months, was charged with espionage in a closed-door trial. >> there's so much to write about it. >> reporter: the washington post tehran bureau chief was detained in 2014. just six weeks after discussing life in iran. >> having certain beverages with my buddies. in certain types of establishments. >> reporter: rezaian, an iranian american, was working in the country with his wife, a fellow reporter. >> i love it. i love it and i hate it. you know, it's home. >> reporter: also released pastor saeed abedini. a father of two who was imprisoned for over three years, accused of threatening iran's national security.
7:11 am
>> i told my kids, daddy's released from prison. you're going to see him soon. they were bugging me, when, when, how soon? >> reporter: and amir hekmati detained the longest, the former u.s. marine was arrested four years ago while he was visiting his grandmother in iran. they all spent time in iran's notorious evin prison. where they were allegedly subjected to beatings, solitary confinement and psychological abuse. >> they should be on their way home to their families before long. >> reporter: prisoners were freed in exchange for seven iranians who were in u.s. custody. the release comes the same day president obama signed an executive order lifting sanctions on iran. but the administration denies the deal was connected in any way to the nuclear deal negotiated in july. indeed the white house insists the release of these american prisoners is entirely unrelated to that nuclear deal. the tens of billions of dollars that iran government gets access to right now as the sanctions are lifted.
7:12 am
but, dan, cecilia, officials do say the diplomacy that led to that nuclear deal did help pave way to the diplomacy to exchange these prisoners. >> the timing is certainly a coincidence. those people are going to have quite a story when they come home. >> absolutely. >> jon, thank you. lots of other news this morning. let's get it over to dr. ron claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. by the way, jon karl will be back later to do "pop news." so, don't touch that dial. >> looking forward to it. we begin in virginia, where two men are in federal custody facing terror-related charges. the takedown occurred on friday at the richmond airport, where he was about to catch a flight to syria. officials said he's been trying to join isis for months and in contact with jihadi members overseas. fbi officials gathered information from the second man in custody. who police say drove him to the airport.
7:13 am
and still no sign of those 12 marines missing off the coast of hawaii after an apparent mid-air collision. new video shows marines and coast guard officials battling high winds and 30-foot waves as they conduct that search. debris strewn off of oahu. witnesses say they saw a helicopter in the air and disappear in a fireball. and we're now learning more about an american missionary who was among the nearly 30 people killed in that terror attack in the african nation of burkina michael james was killed when islamic militants stormed a luxury hotel and cafe in the nation's capital. he leaves behind four children, two of them whom were adopted in burkina faso. at least 28 people were killed in that siege. and more heartbreak for singer celine dion. her brother lost his battle with cancer after her husband died of the same disease. daniel dion died saturday.
7:14 am
after battling the disease for years. celine dion got the news as she was preparing for her husband's funeral this coming friday. and now to some wild nfl playoff action. the packers versus the arizona cardinals. check this out, with seconds to play, aaron rodgers' hail mary pass, it's caught for the touchdown. six points and the extra point. sending that game into overtime. but that celebration was short-lived. sorry, packers fans, arizona scored on the first drive in overtime. winning that game 26-20. as dan reminded me, the new england patriots won their game against the chiefs in new england. and finally, one more for you, it's about a boy, the most die-hard seattle seahawks fan. 7-year-old abe. he's been bullied for years. pulling for the seahawks because he lives in south carolina. carolina panthers are fan favorites. listen. >> they were calling me -- go seahawks, that made me feel kind of sad.
7:15 am
i said, i don't care if you don't like the seahawks. >> wait his mother heard this story, she put together a facebook posting asking for some backup from seahawks fans. linebacker saw the posting and they sent him a parcel full of gear and today, four tickets for the game in south carolina. >> that's so awesome. >> those seahawks fans come out in force. >> who you taking by the way? >> seahawks. >> there's a strong statement from cecilia. >> i did cover the super bowl last year. so. >> stick to campaign coverage. what ron's telling you. a very different kind of sports story this morning, look at this video of embattled nascar driver tony stewart who charged into the stands to confront an apparent heckler. these images come as stewart is facing a wrongful death lawsuit.
7:16 am
involving a fellow driver. abc's phillip mena has the story. >> reporter: racing fans at the annual chili bowl nationals in oklahoma expect action on the dirt track, but this morning, new video has surfaced of a fiery crash in the stands. with nascar champion tony stewart storming into the crowd friday night after this fan -- >> i don't like you and i never have. >> reporter: -- shouted insults at the championship driver, stewart quickly fired back. >> no, i'm not. >> i think you are. >> reporter: the video blowing up at his critic is heating up online. >> i think one of the skills to be a public figure is to develop a thick skin and ignore this kind of criticism. tony's never been that kind of guy. >> reporter: his temper has landed him in trouble in the past. in 2014, he was fined $25,000 after backing into fellow driver brad keselowski's car.
7:17 am
the three-time sprint cup champion is also facing a wrongful death lawsuit, accused of intentionally riding down kevin ward jr. in 2014, killing the 20-year-old driver. >> i know in my heart that it was 100% an accident. >> because the negative attention surrounding the lawsuit it may have been a good decision for tony to ignore that. again that doesn't really fit with his personality. >> reporter: officials say no charges are expected against stewart in this incident. but the man he was arguing with an off-duty tulsa county sheriff's deputy is under investigation. for his part in the confrontation. that deputy's boss saying his officers are held to a higher standard. even while off duty. so far, to word from tony stewart about this incident. this upcoming racing season will be stewart's last. he plans to retire at the end of the year. >> all right, phillip, thank you. quite some video. indra is back with the weather. please tell me that's not an actual temperature on the wall behind you.
7:18 am
>> you remember december, laughing how nice it was. we don't even have winter. someone should have knock on wood, because, yes, that's an actual temperature. this is what it felt like during the day. highs there into the single digits. you can see the windchills this morning, numbers at 28 below in these morning hours. that mean ten minutes outside. unfortunately, this is all going to be continuing. only spreading into the east. so places, like chicago, you'll be 20 below in through tomorrow. all of the way to the eastern seaboard. we'll be talking about single digits and even below zero. boston will be 1 below by the time we get through tuesday morning. you put the cold air right over the lakes. you'll be talking about lake-effect snow, we're firing it up again, one to two feet lake-effect snow out there. it's not just winter on the east coast, but back out to the west, el nino is back.
7:19 am
high wind warnings. a very strong system developing out there. so high surf and heavy amounts of rain, 2 to 4 inches in some of those hot spots. >> so the lesson learned, knock on wood, and maybe it wouldn't have been cold. >> it's your fault. >> i'm relying on your guys. okay, you guys, you're not going to be handle the cuteness that we are about to unveil. all i got to say, roll the tape,
