6:00 am
off to a windy start. >> to say the least. overnight there's been several buildings damaged, a lot of them from the high winds. >> yeah. ear here's damage to a -- here's damage to a church at 71t and kinsman. the brick facade collapsing because of the wind there, but thankfully no structural damage >> another partial building collapse. look at this, this is on naywood avenue. the entire front of the building just fell right into the street. neighbors tell us this building has been vacant for several years. and lots of reports of downed power lines and poles
6:01 am
barbdon. that did not cause a power outage, but in total first energy is working to restore about 1,000 or so right now. so we'll continue to follow that. and scwrmplet d. rudd also following that this morning. >> yeah. tracking that wind for you, 6:01, good morning. the one benefit from the wind, look at the temperature right now. we're kind of in the middle of this surge of milder air in the mid-50s this morning, but it does come with that price of the strong wind gusts. right now wind speeds are out of the south at around 10 to 15 miles an hour. the little bit over the last couple of hours. that's going to continue as we go through the day today. but, still, as you head off to work, two hands on the wheel, yellow, kristin will certainly back me up on that. on the drive home, the sun should peak out, upper 50s. not a bad tuesday in late november. kristin. >>reporter: not too bad. just worryd about those streets where we are seeing issues because of the strong winds. so for traffic out there use caution, especially here. we've got a partial building collapse west 91st street and
6:02 am
nothing too, too concerning. but also use caution in this area here. it is passible, lorain at 126th street, a tree had fallen down in that area earlier. you can get around, just go slowly. let's check on the highways right now. we are looking at 71st, right, at 71, and we are looking okay. traffic starting to build, but at least we're flowing okay in this section. let's check out with john in the sky air tracker 5. good morning. >>reporter: hey, kristin, good morning. for the most part things looking pretty good aside from there were some downed lines. i do want to point out that east 9th street is back open after it was closed earlier this morning because of an issue with some lights. traffic moving again on east 9th. we'll check out some other areas and let you know what we see here from air tracker 5. in air tracker 5, i'm john ritter. we're not going to give in to fear, we're not going to give in to hatred or violence. >> we can't be broken by tragedy like this. >> healing after horror. ohio state coming together this
6:03 am
that terrifying attack. >> very scary. and students will be back in their classrooms today less than 24 hours after a man drove into a crowd, stabbing several people. news 5's meg shaw here with the very latest. good morning, meg. >>reporter: good morning, sarah and corrina. there are so many unanswered questions this morning by columbus police and federal agents, they are now working to uncover why this happened n. a facebook post from the attacker may provide some insight. just three minutes before into a crowd of people and started stabbing, he posted this to his facebook. i can't take it any more, america. stop interfering with other countries, especially the muslim. we are not weak, we are not weak, remember that. the fbi now digging deeper into that post, all this as religious leaders focus on helping students and staff move forward. >> we're not going to give in to to fear, we're not going to
6:04 am
or retaliation. >>reporter: many leaders now saying the only way through this is to come together. the ohio state emergency management tweeting this, quote, together we remain unified in the face of adversity. and they will try to heal together tonight at the st. john's arena with a special community event. that starts at 7:00. all are welcome. corrina. >> and, meg, c.a.i.r., the council on american islamic relations is condemning the attack. >> leaders here in cleveland also calling for everyone to remain calm judgment about all somali americans. >> the somali community have left a place where there is ongoing violence and they've come here as a refuge to live in american society. they love this country, they work very hard, they want to peacefully raise their families here, and they absolutely categorically stand against anyone who would perpetrate
6:05 am
this attack could prompt violence against muslims and their mosques. well, looking ahead to tomorrow, ohio lawmakers are set to take autopsy bill related to weapons on college campuses. the columbus dispatch says this bill was in the works before the attack. it would let universities adopt policies that allow concealed carry handguns on campus. another bill going before committee tomorrow would reduce the penalty for carrying a weapon on campus from a felony to a misdemeanor. social media played a bi role after this attack, facebook activating its safety check feature. it allows people to tell family and friends that they are okay. facebook was calling it a violent incident in columbus. and, of course, we will continue to follow the latest on the attack as it develops. if you want to read more in- depth coverage of what's going on, you can check out our news 5 app. we have a time line of developments, full versions of news conferences and much more. corrina. let's get back to breaking news. we do have new information
6:06 am
plane crash. the plane carrying a brazilian soccer team, as we've been telling you, it crashed overnight. at least two of those soccer players, we can tell you among the five people who survived. most of the passengers on the plane were players and also employees from that pro soccer team. you see them here. they were playing here in their last match against bolivia. we are staying on top of this. of course we'll keep you updated. sarah. teachers are going back to work in louisville. the rep says members of the teachers nearly four-week strike last night, but there's no word on if they accepted the new contract that was left on the table. they are asking the board of education to clarify two issues, reduction in force and insurance bills from before the strike. classes at all louisville schools are canceled today, but everyone will be back tomorrow. a 25-year-old man turns himself in after hitting a 10- year-old with his car. last week cleveland heights police say jeremy boone was
6:07 am
crosswalk with his older brother. boone has been charged with aggravated vehicular assault. according to police, the child is now out of the hospital. some good news there. well, today, as we just mentioned before the break, it's giving tuesday. in recent years it's become kind of a companion to black friday and cyber monday, but instead of buying, the focus here is on giving. and the greater cleveland food bank is hoping you're going to remember them today. food bank leaders say they're in one in three people in cleveland live in poverty. many of them rely on the food bank to eat, and demand, of course, it increases during the holidays. kids are going to winter break, they don't get a school lunch. >> back in our kitchen, we can distribute anywhere from 5,000 to almost 10,000 meals in any given day, depending on whether or not school is out. >> now keep in mind donations do not need to just be in the form of non-perishable foods.
6:08 am
financial donations and they use those to buy bulk foods to be stored in their warehouse. okay. meteorologist j.d. rudd back with another check of the weather >> yeah, good morning, everyone. 6:08. kind of a tossup today, a hard one on what the headline of the day should be. i went with the wind here in the morning hours but this afternoon it's likely going to be the milder temperatures. the wind has caused some issues this morning. we showed you the video earlier. the wind is still going to be gusty this afternoon, even around noon gusts could still be around 20 miles an hour. now to put that in comparison spea n we saw this morning, wind gusts at around 45 miles an hour. still, it may get your attention as you head out early this morning. outside of that we've got a mild day in store. i'll detail your forecast here in a couple of minutes. >> all right, j.d. it's 6:08. good morning, i'm corrina pysa. >> i'm sarah phinney. working hard as you saw there. still ahead, wildfires threatening thousands of homes in tennessee. we'll show you some more amazing video from those evacuating. and a cleveland company
6:09 am
of school. but, first, a look at what's coming up on "good morning america." >>reporter: in this morning's "gma first look." passengers on this jet were stunned. >> they opened the door and dumped out of the plane. >>reporter: landing in houston from new orleans, but not at the gate yet, the emergency door is gone as well as a passenger. spotted on video obtained by kprc, she's seen running across the tarmac towards the terminal. but a medical case. >> psychiatric problem, airport response team 92. >>reporter: the woman hospitalized overnight, but this is not the first time. in the past few years we've seen flight attendants who decided to quit by deploying the emergency chutes and bailing out of the aircraft and their jobs. and we'll have more details coming up at 7:00 a.m., plus the latest on the airport
6:10 am
o'hare airport. with "gma's" first look, david
6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am
it is 6:13. and right now here at the live desk i'm following fast-moving wildfires in tennessee. look at this video here giving you an idea for just how close these flames are coming to homes and businesses this. is in gatlinburg. that city under an immediate evacuation order and that includes the popular great smokey mountains national park and ski areas, even dollywood. the fire being fanned strong winds and the worst drought in sneerly a decade there -- in nearly a decade there. so far no reports of injuries, but at least 100 homes are affected. and look at this, wildfires also a concern in colorado. this is a denver suburb. firefighters from the city among those being called in to help, and then it's snow causing problems in the dakotas. this is what it's like in bismarck, south dakota right now. in north dakota the governor actually issued an emergency
6:14 am
they're upset over a proposed pipeline. well, he says the winter storms in the forecast are just too dangerous for them to be there. sarah. >> oh, snow. today green party candidate jill stein expected to file the paperwork needed to start an election recount in michigan. she's already done the same thing in wisconsin where the recount is set to begin thursday. however, stein is suing that state because it will not hand count the ballots. stein has also filed a suit for a hand count in pennsylvan threatening to file a lawsuit of her own. according to a letter from her lawyer obtained by tmz, melania trump is furious over a video suggesting her 10-year-old son barren is autistic. rosie o'donnell tweeted a link to the video last week. melania is not threatening to sue o'donnell, but she wants the person who posted the video to apologize. and a man whose profanity-
6:15 am
from delta for life. >> this man [ indiscernable ] [ bleep ] we got hillary clinton supporters on here >> oh, boy. well, delta was criticized immediately after this happened for not getting the guy off the plane. late yesterday delta offered full refunds to passengers in addition to banning that guy for life. corrina. >> well, sarah texas is now the second state to confirm a zika virus. lab results confirmed this in a woman in brownsville in south texas right near the mexico border. the woman has not traveld to an area where the virus is circulating. the only other state where the virus is circulating is florida. and in california three people are dead, another five sick after eating thanksgiving dinner. health officials think they all got some form of food poisoning from a dinner at a church event. another 835 people did eat at that event also.
6:16 am
sick. providing free hygiene supplies for women and girls in public rest rooms is an idea that's gaining traction on college campuses all across the country and in a growing number of cities. critics say, though, women will get greedy if offered tampons or pads for free. but a cleveland company has a solution. hospeko designs a dispenser that lets women get products for free but makes it difficult for one person to empty the whole machine. disp huge impact on the lives of younger girls. about 50% of girls in cleveland live in poverty and that means money for sanitary products isn't always available. sometimes they miss class. >> so the truth is that a menstrual cycle can be a barrier for a young girl attending school because of the humiliation, because of the lack of dignity and the consequences of not having access to those items.
6:17 am
finding a solution. we are taking a live look outside right now. what a beautiful shot of the city. you know, those winds were howling overnight and we're seeing a lot of problems because of that, j.d. >> yeah, a lot of power lines and trees down because of the wind gusts at around 40 to 45 miles an hour. for some folks, if you got a tree outside that scratches on the siding, wakes you -- scraping on the morning hours, wakes you up. the reason there's a storm system to the west and northwest and the atmosphere is all kinds of wound up. the benefit, though, is the milder air it's bringing in. later on today around 3:00 in the afternoon temperatures mid- 50s to upper 60s. we're only supposed to be at 45 degrees this time of year. so we'll take that nice late november warmup. we had the rain last night into early this morning. that has now passed us by. the radar is trying to pick up a little snow activity there, light flurry activity over the lake, that's moving off to the
6:18 am
storm system. and look at this, parts of the dakotas, bismarck, north dakota, look at that snow falling there. they have seen quite a bit of snow in the last 48 hours or so, but we're getting that mild air to work its way into the ohio area and we'll take that this time of year. the wind gusts, boy, have they been strong, 45 miles per hour at hopkins this morning, 46 in lorain, 49 in mansfield, 48 in the akron area, 46 the peak wind gust so far in wooster and 35 in youngstown. so it has been windy to say the least. wind gusts hour, they've backed their way down at around, we'll call it 15 to about 25 miles an hour. current temperatures right now are in the low 50s, sustained wind speeds out of the south at around 10 to 15. that wind will continue to ease back as the day goes on. we may squeak out a couple rays of sunshine especially later on this afternoon, right before that sun decides to set. high temperature around 62 degrees. we will take that in late november. but change is around the corner. so is your seven-day forecast. stay with us.
6:19 am
that's the good news and our drive times right where we should be along 71, 77 and 90 as we approach the 6:19 on your monday morning. let's see what else we're dealing with. just some areas that might have some side streets dealing with fallen power cables, fallen trees as well, a little bit of a slow spot i noticed earlier 480 and 77, but nothing too concerning at this point. we do have a downed tree right here on oak park avenue. that's between 32nd and state in the city of cleveland. let's pull up our od there we go. this is 72 right at 480. the headlights are the northbound lanes flowing just fine for now. let's check in with jon rudder in air tracker 5. good morning. >>reporter: hey, kristin, good morning. we are getting an aerial look at maywood avenue, and it's -- and its closure because of a building that has collapsed. you can see there are several bricks in the streets. we saw some construction barrels blocking off maywood avenue. it looks like this may be closed for some time because there is quite the cleanup that is going to be needed to be made here in this area.
6:20 am
area, beware, maywood avenue is going to be closed this. is all between west 90th and west 94th that building coming down because of major wind issues. avoid that area if you can. >>reporter: thank you, john. well, across the country we are hearing reports about some muslim women saying they're just afraid to wear thai hijabs, many of them opting to go without the head scarves. >> they say harassment and violence has increased since the election. muslim women actually began taking self-defense sharing tips on social media and making a choice, their face or personal safety. >> my head scarf has just become something that went from being a very spiritual element of a woman's life to being something where she had to be scared to wear it. i myself just didn't feel like i wanted to continue with that
6:21 am
look up to the president-elect and will follow his lead if he condemns hate crimes. well, trending online this morning, actor anthony michael hall unfortunately, though, it's not for a good reason. famous for his roles in '80s teen movies like "the breakfast club," and "16 candles," hall is now facing up to seven years in prison. he's being charged with felony battery. his neighbor says hall broke his wrist and hurt his back during an argument that happened two months ago. up next, there's a celebration in the works for prince. what's being planned for the anniversary of his death. and a new addition to downtown cleveland, how the city plans to connect public square to the lakefront. guess what, we've got super screen 5 up and running, tracking your weather and traffic during the break. you're watching "good morning

6:25 am
morning goes on. as the kids get back to the bus stop perhaps today, going to be a windy wait for some at seefng, a mild afternoon. still a little breezy by 3:00 or so today. i think temperatures topping out in the 60s. give you a quick check of that seven-day forecast. look at this, for late november, of course we turn the calendar and the weather changes as well. 40s return for the weekend and next week. >> all right. well, illinois the construction on the -- now that the construction on the new public square is done, we're so happy about that, well, the project. a pedestrian bridge to the lake, it's been talkd about for a long time, he was never completed, though. well, the commission says it's still in the works. designs are being finalized right now. funding is almost in place. >> we've got a great advantage which is $25 in committed funts from the city, the county and then from the state. >> now, since the project had an initial time frame that got pushed back, they don't want to put a time frame on when
6:26 am
downtown projects going. well, if you like reviewing products and businesses online, you're going to want to hear this. congress just passed a bill that protects people who write reviews. the bill now includes reviews in the freedom of speech protections, meaning you can't be sued for writing a negative review. it was passed in response to some businesses making customers sign agreements that prevented them from writing badly online. well, coming up we state attack and the suspect. what's happening on campus today. and then a somber anniversary in cleveland. we are looking back at an intense police chase and shooting.

[ wind noise ] >> it kind of sounds like thunder, but it's not.
6:30 am
the side of the pnc building downtown. whipping winds causing a lot of trouble, power outages overnight. in the upper left of your screen there, you're looking at the entire front of an abandoned building. it collapsed onto maywood avenue. you see bricks and debris all over the place. >> and on the right strong winds take down half a wall of bricks at a church on kinsman. there are also many reports of poles and power lines being down right now. some progress is being made. several thousand people, though, still in the dark lake counties. j.d. rudd has been tracking this all morning. good morning, j.d. >> good morning. with those power lines and the wind, it's like they're doing jump rope out there. we can show you with our exclusive weatherbug network, a series of weather stations around the area that shows the temperature and the wind, especially this morning. we can highlight that. a wind gust of 43 in painesville, 43 as well in mentor. 32 the peak wind gust at our site in wooster. so, again, it has been a windy morning. give you a live look outside
6:31 am
and wind go. winds have calmed down a little bit now, out of the south at about 15 to 20 miles an hour. it's still going to be breezy if not windy this morning. we should see those winds ease up in the afternoon. the temperatures also going up today into the upper 50s to low 60s, so the winds helping us in that aspect. but change is around the corner. we'll talk about that in a few. kristin. >>reporter: thanks so much, j.d. still tracking a bunch of different issues on the side streets this morning because of the strong winds. we've got a tree down oak park avenue. that's between 32nd and state. as we head into the city, though, a reminder that right lane on 90 eastbound over that innerbelt bridge, start time 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. that will be closed off for those commuters, but west 14th access is okay. make sure you follow me on twitter at kristin-byrne, i have a list of all those downed trees, downed power lines that have the intersections very difficult to get through as far as navigation is concerned. let's pull up our odot and put a track on the highways right
