>> it's crunch time. all of this work is all about this. >> will donald trump be iowa caucus, the high-stakes vote that some say could make him unstoppable. >> anybody within a 50-foot raid radius would have gone seriously hurt or killed. >> why bombs were being built and stored inside this home. >> i don't understand why people would take advantage of other people in general. i think it's a shame. >> yes, it is a shame. but this time, they picked on the wrong guy. how a homeowner outstart smarted a pair of thieves. >> good evening, everybody and welcome. >> we're glad to have you with us.
the very first votes in this year's presidential cycle are being counted right now. and nobody can explain these quirky numbers in iowa caucuses better than craig patrick. he has been in iowa for the week. craig, what are you thinking so far? >> reporter: you nailed it. we have some real quirks. you can take a lot of assumptions and throw them out the window. this is a very different year. you can look at the numbers. but you can't make a call yet because this much we know -- it's going to be a very close race in both parties. it could take us at least until 10:30, 11:00, to make a final call, if not, more likely, well after that. there is a big spike in turnout, particularly among republican voters at this point. to the extent that it swamped some of the precincts. some of the precincts ran out of paper for ballots for people to
there are very long lines. the republican party officials tell us that they have this under control. anyone lined up at 7:00 got in and they made accommodations to count the votes. but wemay well set a record. if looks as if there lawyer at least 135- to 150,000 people, perhaps even more than that as some of the population centers come in. so, this much we know, there is a significant spike in interest that seems to be working against all patterns. >> what about the time frame? when do we expect at least a winner to be declared? >> reporter: i don't know if there will be a winner declared right away. but we think we will have most of the returns in within the next hour or two. it will be a nail biter in the democratic race. hillary clinton is clinging to a lead of two percentage points. the gap continues to narrow, now
if you look at the entrance polling, 17 to 29-year-olds, yeah, bernie sanders, wiping clinton out. more than 85% breaking standards. and seniors are breaking heavily for hillary clinton. it is going to come down to iowa city, pernel. those cities, precincts that have not yet reported will determine whether or not bernie sanders closes the gap. in the republican party, again, the patterns are being broken. you expected donald trump to do very well in the west. he is doing very well in the east. you expected rubio to do well in the central part of the state. he is doing well in rural parts of the state. you expected cruz to do well in the east and west. he is doing well in the central part of the state. we have a lot of new people entering the process. and they seem to be defying the odds. it leaves us with a
trump and marco rubio is coming out of nowhere. he had momentum in the final days. it is showing in the results. he is relatively close at this point to donald trump. >> that would be really amazing if he does pull out a win here. jeb seems nowhere on the map. craig, we are going to let you get back to it. we will check back with you in a half hour. >> everybody may be talking about iowa. but the presidential and election is underway in florida. ballots for the march presidential primary are in the mail for florida voters who live overseas, including those in the military. state law requires election supervisors to send out overseas ballots 45 days before an election. next week, mail-in ballots will be sent to those who have requested them. and a lot of people have. >> we have a great response for vote by mail. people are finding this is a very convenient way to vote. we mail the ballot to your house. take time to research on your
candidates or issues. then you seal it, sign it, drop it in the mail box. postage. >> or you can stand in line. the presidential preference primary is march 15. >> the bomb squad showing up at your neighbor's house. what is really unnerving is what they found inside the home on north lincoln avenue in tampa. evan axelbank's here to tell us about the bombs they found and anti-government views, according to police here? >> reporter: michael ramose was reported to authorities by his former employer who had been in ramos' home and saw the bombs. in the federal complaint, ramos says he never intended to hurt anyone. but he made the bombs because you never know if you might need them. michael ramos' facebook page makes clear -- he is armed and ready. it makes clear, he believes an armed militia should, quote, regulate the government when
yet, he did not talk about the bombs he made on there. not to his neighbors either. >> my reaction is very, very shocked, honestly. nice guy. >> reporter: ramos was turned in on saturday by his former employer, a seller of ballistic plates. he saw at least four pipe bombs in ramos' home and ramos told him he made the products from the internet and home depot. >> had one of them gone off, anybody within a 50-feet radius would have been seriously hurt or killed. >> reporter: during a recorded phone call on sunday, ramos promised that he would get rid of the bombs. but monday, federal agents raided the home and found eight live pvc pipebombs and an assortment of grenades and ammunition.
someone from the public alerted us that someone was in possession of pipebombs. >> reporter: after the raid, rammingose' girlfriend came to the house to gather belongings. will you tell us why you have the bombs? she had no comment. ramos told agents he had no intention of hurting anyone that they were for preparedness. but the affidavit also said, he added bird shot to the bombs and admitted that they could potentially kill his neighbors. >> he's very nice guy. i don't know. i don't know his private life, you know what i mean? for me? >> in the complaint, he says he is part of a militia in pinellas county called the united states patriot army. atf agents are currently checking to see whether that is a real group. and if so, whether ramos is actually a member. >> i am sure they will let you know what they do. >> don't picot man who lives in
outinitiatived, had a gun pointed in his face and he outsmarted the two men who followed him to his home and then tried to rob him. josh is live at temple terrace to show us what happened here. josh? >> reporter: well, first up, police are still looking for those two guys tonight. the thought is they may have attacked this guy at his home because he looked like an easy target. but, boy, were they wrong. >> i was putting in groceries and i was just finishing up when one of them grabbed me by the arm, pointed a gun at my face and said, don't say anything and started to try to usher me away from the house. >> reporter: a little out of breath, but with remarkable calm, he relays to 911 the details of his near-death encounter. >> the door was open in my house, i feared for my family. i grab the gunman and the second he was distracted, i pushed him as far as i could and ran away
and the second i could, i drew my firearm and started firing at him. >> reporter: it happened just before 11:00 sunday night. the caller said he fired seven rounds at the suspects. they fired four or five shots at him. >> one hit me in the finger. >> reporter: another bullet ripped across serena drive into a neighbor's living room window. thankfully, no one was home. >> this scary that something happened this close and it indirectly affected us. >> reporter: police think the two suspects randomly chose their target who may have appeared to be an easy get. as a condition sealed weapons permit holder, he proved them wrong. >> it could have been a different outcome. >> reporter: again, police looking for both suspects tonight. it is unclear whether or not either of them were hit during the gunfire. we do know, though, the victim will be fine. of course, if you have any information that could help the temple terrace police, contact
>> thank you, josh. >> nearly 46 years, 6 years after her ex-boyfriend killed two tampa police officers, courtney brantley is headed to federal prison. she was with dante morris the night he killed the two officers. a federal jury said she should have informed the officers that morris was a felon in possession of a firearm. she did not. the judge sentenced her to one year and one day in prison. this was day one. and her attorney said she was ready for it. >> serve her sentence. and for the families that are involved, including the family of the two officers, hopefully, this will bring some closure. >> yeah, brantley should have started her sentence a month ago, but she got arrested again after her girlfriend accused her of beating her. the sentence was delayed so she could be tried for domestic battery, but that woman decided
>> two teenagers escaped from a juvenile detention center. 18-year-old anthony bays and 17-year-old anthony cook cut a hole in the chain-link phelps and crawled through t. a staff member noticed other teens looking at the fence, then he did a head count. that revealed that the two teens were missing. both were serving time for grand theft auto. the department of juvenile justice is now investigating how they escaped. >> coming up, a tourism plan to drive visitors here, using a popular ride-sharing service. >> the first of its kind. no one's really approached it like this. >> see why uber riders may get warm fuzzy feelings when they think of pinellas county beaches. >> nothing could shatter this glass. how it's helping keep students safe, tonight at 10:30. >> a warm day today. >> reporter: yeah warm day today and even warmer weather
the temperatures in the 80s for most of us, on the day on tuesday, i will let you know how warm things get, coming up. i don't know what i'm doing. i can't find anything just when i think it's just not going to work. this woman that works there comes over and asks can i help you? and he was so happy, to do it amazing right? i never would have expected would have thought that anyone would find that do that. make that go out of their way for me. right then, right there i couldn't believe it he was so helpful i know it's such a small thing little thing. simple thing but it made me smile made me happy made my day share your story. publix. where shopping
>> oox. how do you get more people from chicago to visit bay-area beaches? this time of year or any time really. you give them a ride, a very warm ride. at least that's what the plan is by the official tourism agency of pinellas county, very smart. it's called visit st. pete clearwater. >> they have partnered with uber in a marketing campaign that they say has never been done.
never been done. before. >> easy targets. >> this is a natural progression for us. >> reporter: downing is the executive director of visit st. pete clear water. he wants to bring more people from chicago here. he plans on doing that, using the ride-sharing service uber, not to drive them here, but to lure them here. >> it was something that woe came to them with. woe said, how, can we work with them in this key market. >> reporter: in chicago, when they tap the uber app, they are greeted by this, warmup wednesdays. put in a special code and they get a free ride that looks like this. when they hop inside, their driver will hit them with swag. >> we have winter hats and hand warmers. they give the hand warmers that say st. pete clearwater.
equipped with virtual reality goggles to take a tour of the warm sunny beaches en route to their bitter destination in chicago. how many of them will come to our area as a result of the free, warm swag-filled uber rides? we won't know for a while. but downing sees winds of fortune. >> i believe this is the first of a long-term relationship, doing things with ubir. >> -- uber. >> we do know that four people from chicago will come here as a result of this campaign because each person who uses the app on wednesdays will be entered in a drawing to win a four-night getaway to st. pete or clearwater. the forecast for chicago on wednesday, 39 degrees and cloudy. >> cloudy is the salt in the wound. >> doctors had a local man and giving him a 1% chance of survival.

at 80. >> but not for long? >> for a few days and then we are back in the roller coaster, right? we will be like that for a couple of months. if you like the 80s, you will enjoy the next couple of days. time lapse view from today, look at this, plenty of sunshine out there at the beaches, everywhere you went. good amount of people at the beaches for a monday afternoon, the first day of february, in fact. nice sunset with high clouds in the end. weather headlines, a couple of big stories here. the first one, the most obvious, the unseasonable warmth. that comes to an end on thursday, we flip-flop the temperatures on friday. the other big story will be the fog out there. we will see areas of fog. we already have areas of fog developing tonight. sea fog will be developing later tonight, into the day on tuesday. at least the start of the day tuesday looks pretty foggy. for coastal areas, it may stay
afternoon and the evening, depending on how the wins line up. the third big story would be the storms and the heavy rain threat on thursday. then again, as we head into sunday, really no rest in an elnino-like pattern. 78, the high. yesterday, we were in the 70s, the day before that, mid to upper 60s. so a big jump the last couple of days. 63 in brandon. 64 in new port richey. 64 in brooksville. still 72 out in sebring. dew points, they're in the mid to upper 60s, as well. it's that difference between the dew point and the temperature being so small, along with winds that are calm or light across the area, that really aids in the development of fog. that's why we already have fog drop into three-quarters of a mile visibility in [sville.
overnight. the fog forecast. you can see tomorrow morning -- a pretty wide, expansive fog. some of it may be locally dense. that doesn't burn off until 9:00, 10:00, 11:00. then we watch it, the sea fog. again, if we start to get more of that onshore flow, we will see more of that fog impacting coastal communities and that wednesday. we keep that until likely early thursday morning. high pressure in control. that keeps that southeast flow going. so we will see a good amount of sun once we get through the fog, but look out to the west. the massive storm system, that starts to make its way eastward. we will see the cold front bringing showers and rain, later wednesday, through the day thursday, ending thursday night. for tonight, though, mild, 65 degres. the areas of fog developing right now. heads up in the morning.
81 degrees, a warm and muggy day out there. inland folks, you may be getting into the mid-80s. not really feeling like the second day of february. 79 on wednesday, 30% rain chance later in the day. thursday, first day of the state fair, always seems like it rains on the first day of the fair. this year, no exception. 73, 70% chance of rain. >> all right. after that, the weekend will be good. that's the key. >> plenty of days. plenty of time. >> coming up, new developments in a very scary virus. the zika virus. see what it means here in the the new caramel macchiato from dunkin' donuts. let hand-crafted layers of espresso, milk, and a caramel-flavored swirl uplift your mood. indulge in a hot or iced macchiato today.

>> we have a new warning about a virus spread by mosquitoes. i am sure you have heard about this. world health officials have declared an international health emergency over the virus, which has been linked to a series of birth defects. >> cdc has added four countries to the alert list, costa rica, nikki haley and american sama, where the virus is active. those who travel are at high risk of being infected with the disease. the united nations health agency helt held a special meeting. >> the virus has affected thousands of people already in brazil. 24 other countries are in territories that are involved in this. today, brazil's health ministry rolled out a plan to document and monitor everybody who has
zika has been linked to a rare birth defect that causes abnormally small heads and brain damage in infants. there have been 22 cases of zika in the u.s., but all of those people were infected in other countries and traveled here to the u.s. there is no vaccine or treatment. lawmakers say, that needs to change. >> it should expeditiously work with private industry to develop a vaccine, treatment and test for the zika virus. >> sometimes it causes flu-like aches and pains, but many people who are infected do not have any symptoms at all. the best way to protect yourself is to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. >> a lot of people are pretty concerned about the zika virus. let's bring in dr. jo on this. what advice might you have for us, especially for pregnant women who really need to be most concerned? >> reporter: heed the warnings of the cdc. they are asking pregnant women
that are affected. those who are here and are stateside, we have not seen any local outbreaks, we don't know of any locally transmitted cases. the cases that have come to the imported. most of them or all of them have been contained. so for those women who may have a relative or a loved one coming back from one of those areas, probably a week is probably safe. i would say take precautions during that week. but we have mosquitoes here in florida that have been carrying west nile. so always, you know, really and truly, we should be thinking about mosquitos and what they can carry. really, when you do see the devastating effects of individuals who are bitten with transmitted disease like west nile or eastern equine encephalitis, it reminds us, we really do need to take precautions. >> follow-up is really important, especially here.
if you have a person who does come back from one of these country, only 20% or so can have it. so if they take precautions. and if someone does get, you want them to get to help. you want them to have access to care, not be afraid to seek out the care. once that person is identified, what happens? we have mosquito control. we have all sorts of things that come into play to help to mitigate the circumstance. so it's extremely important that people get care or talk about it. when you think about here -- there are a lot of women -- i have emails from some of our viewers, they are concerned, they are going to some of those areas. there are lots of ways you can protect yourself from mosquitoes. you can spray your clothing. you can obviously spray your body. but you can soak your clothes. it's a very inexpensive way. you don't have to buy the
ways to protect yourself. zika virus or denge or whatever's circulating, you want to protect yourself when you are going into those areas. >> for those who don't intend on traveling and especially the pregnant ones, awareness is key, right? >> reporter: absolutely. you know, that's really important. you know, the nice thing about living here is most of us have air conditioning. we have, you know, screens and certainly, you want to make sure that your screens are fixed and covered. and make sure that, you know, you don't have any standing water. try to decrease the number of mosquitoes that might be in your local environment. those are things that we can do. if you have any questions or concerns, you can always call mosquito control. they are out there. they can be helpful to you. so, talk to your doctor. >> worst thing you can do is assume you know it all. thanks very much. >> we have more results rolling in from the iowa presidential
our political editor craig patrick's in the thick of it. he will tell us why the clinton camp is cautiously optimistic, but nervous about the vote count. >> stand by, we will go to bend me shape me, any way you want me as long as you love me, it's alright bend me shape me, any way you want me shape the best sleep of your life. sleep number beds with sleepia technology adjust any way you want it the bed that moves you.

this will be a disappointing night for donald trump who led in the polls. they expected to win. loud boos erupted moments ago from the trump camp when it was announced that ted cruz will be the victor. look for another big storyline, marco rubio is neck and neck, right now with donald trump. now we have news, as well, in other campaigns. we have mike huckabee announcing that he will be suspending his campaign after his poor finish tonight. the republican race loses at least one candidate. i bet there will be more. now to the democratic race. we have hillary clinton leading by less than 1%, with more than 80% of the returns already in. the clinton campaign is optimistic. they think this is the latest statement from the campaign -- they think that they will win. but the problem that the clinton camp may have is that the outstanding votes are coming from precincts that are not
new voters, who basically are delaying the rules coming in. with new voters, based on the interim polling, they heavily favor bernie sanders. can bernie sanders close what is in effect less than a one percentage point lead from hillary clinton? we will probably find out later tonight and possibly at 11:00. we have one more casualty. the o'malley campaign, martin o'malley will be dropping out. though he department have much support. have you to wonder in a close race between clinton and sanders, where his support may go. >> you know what, craig? i know this is breaking right now. but i know the spin is happening in all the campaigning. what are they starting to say? have you heard from them, yet? >> reporter: this was just moments ago. so this will come trickling in. but the loud boos that erupted from the trump headquarters, i
of reaction that you might get from donald trump himself. he invested heavily in iowa and may be rethinking that decision, to skip the debates. we found anecdoteally that a number of people in iowa didn't appreciate that. they wanted to hear from donald trump, be part of that debate. if there isa a -- if this is a close race, that could have made the difference. >> it is going to be interesting to see how this all plays out. we will be coming back to you in a little while. >> reporting from des moines, iowa. we will see you at 11:00. >> new at 10:00, detectives say three inmate who is broke out of a california jail had been planning their escape several months. the trio was picked up by an accomplice, shortly after their escape, a little more than a week ago. they abducted a taxi driver. two escapees argued about killing him. the taxi driver was not hurt. two of the fugitives returned to jail last night.

that's what the makers of school guard glass told representatives at bay area school districts and universities. the glass is designed to stop someone with a gun from getting inside a school long enough for help to arrive. >> we are really giving people time. whether it's time for first responders to show up, time for evacuation plans to take place. >> reporter: the specially designed glass was born after the shooting at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut. 26 people were killed, most of them children. >> he shot a side light, it crum crumbled, he walked in. if our glass was in place in the front entry and he continued to try to get into that front entry, it is very likely that he would not have gotten in before first responders were there. >> reporter: cool relationships wouldn't comment, but a school safety consultant
layer of safety, especially in school entryways. >> we are looking across the country. a lot of that has been through enterways. >> reporter: the glass can't prevent every school shooting scenario, the manufacturer says. but it can make it more difficult for someone bent on harm from getting inside. rob roth for fox news. >> hope it works. >> it's about time. we needed new technology like that. >> absolutely. yes. >> coming up, football plans are flocking to buy super bowl gear. >> a warning about counterfeit merchandise, right after the the new caramel macchiato from dunkin' donuts.
