7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose norah o'donnell and gayle king are all off, but we're here. i'm anthony mason with margaret brennan, happy fourth of july. >> good to celebrate with you, anthony. >> america is celebrating its 238th birthday as you wake up in the west. hurricane arthur is weakening. minutes ago the national hurricane center downgraded arthur to a category 1. the storm hit north carolina with 100-mile-an-hour winds and heavy rain but arthur's top winds are down to 90 miles an hour as it races up the east coast. >> our correspondents are stationed along the atlantic coast this morning. we begin with susan mcginnis in nag's head north carolina near the eye of the storm. susan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, and good morning to our viewers in the west. thousands of people here in the outer banks are waking up this fourth of july to survey the damage after hurricane arthur came ashore here late last night. overnight arthur swept through eastern north carolina strengthening into a category 2 hurricane.
7:04 am
it is a devastating mix. winds gusting over 100 miles per hour and torrential rains are pummelling the outer banks. late last night officials tracking the storm were not expecting arthur to change course pushing deeper into the state and putting thousands more in its destructive path. >> so most people who have been concerned have been directly on the coast. now we have concerns about people inland who may be impacted by potential flooding and rivers going over their banks. >> reporter: more than two dozen counties are in a state of emergency. >> look at that. >> reporter: with the threat of serious flooding thousands have been forced to leave. many are now set up in shelters waiting for the worst of the storm to pass. >> we didn't know what was going to happen on the beach. we didn't want to take any chances so we figured we'd come here. >> reporter: as hurricane arthur barrels its way along the coast, people are being urged to stay inside and stay safe. >> this is a serious storm. please be safe be smart and
7:05 am
we'll all get to enjoy the wonderful fourth of july weekend. >> reporter: it will still be a few hours before officials here can get a real sense of the damage from this hurricane. it may be hard to believe, but it's expected to be a beautiful rest of the weekend saturday and sunday. >> some reward. susan mcginnis, thanks susan. people on the outer banks have seen hurricanes before but never on the fourth of july. colin browder is in kill devil hills, north carolina, where the storm hit hard. >> reporter: good morning from kill devil hills. we're still seeing some very strong wind gusts here. you can see the angry ocean behind me but conditions have been improving. we've been battered for the past few hours, but as arthur moves offshore here, things are starting to improve. reports of sporadic power outages up and down the outer banks. the big concern, sound side flooding as we get deeper into the daylight we'll certainly be able to better assess any damage there. the story of this storm, clearly
7:06 am
how quickly it has moved through. people were out here enjoying the beach at sunset. they hope to be out here again later on today and then hope to get on with their holiday weekend. >> thanks. new pictures taken from the international space station show the size of this well-organized storm. it will affect the weekend weather for tens of millions of people. chief meteorologist eric fisher of our boston station wbz is tracking arthur. eric, good morning. where's this headed? >> reporter: arthur made landfall as a category 2 storm. the first cat 2 since 2008 making landfall and now it's working its way off toward the north and east rapidly. that will take another close path to land by this evening. after 8:00 or 9:00 it's just off to the southeast of nantucket and then as a category 1 hurricane it continues its track up towards nova scotia. it will be a major storm very late tonight and into the day on saturday.
7:07 am
that wind field pulling away from north carolina, but in the yellow you've got your tropical storm force winds. they will come across nantucket and martha's vineyard this evening. not as bad as what they saw in north carolina. the rain is another issue. there will be flash flood concerns particularly in southern new england on the fourth of july. very disruptive weather. >> eric thanks. now to the georgia father who left his toddler son in a hot car for hours. he will stand trial for murder. justin ross harris remains jailed this morning after a judge denied bail thursday. prosecutors in marietta laid out evidence they say proves the death was no accident. as mark strassmann reports, part of their case was that harris was living a double life. >> reporter: justin ross harris says it was a terrible mistake when he left his 22-month-old son, cooper sealed inside an suv on a broiling day last month. >> i think the evidence now is showing intent. >> reporter: detective phil stoddard testified as little cooper died his father was
7:08 am
exchanging lewd messages and photos with six different women, including a teenage girl. >> these conversations that he was having of what nature of them. >> the most common term would be sexting. >> reporter: prosecutors say before the toddler's death, harris made suspicious internet searches into better living without children and how to survive in prison. harris and his wife also in the courtroom, had taken out two life insurance policies for their son. and the day cooper died she showed up at his regular day care to be told the boy was never dropped off. >> and in front of several witnesses, all of a sudden she states, ross must have left him in the car. >> reporter: detective stoddard said neither parent showed much emotion. >> he talked about losing his job, what are we going to do i'll lose my job. i'll be charged with a felony. >> did his wife ever say anything to him about what he said to police. >> she said him sit down and she
7:09 am
starts going through this and she said did you say too much. >> reporter: a defense witness at the scene testified that harris seemed genuinely upset. >> he was saying oh my god, oh my god my son is dead. oh, my god, my son is dead. >> reporter: and defense lawyer maddox kilgore insisted harris made a tragic unintentional mistake. >> the results were terrible awful, and that man is going to have to live with those for the rest of his life as is his wife, as is his family as is the community. but that don't make it a crime. >> reporter: but the murder charge will stand, and harris could face the death penalty. for "cbs this morning," mark strassmann, atlanta. >> such a troubling story. we're also following clashes in jerusalem this morning near a religious site sacred to jews muslims and christians. israel is bracing for retaliation after the murder of a palestinian teenager whose funeral is being held today.
7:10 am
alex ortiz is on the mt. of olives in east jerusalem where a violent situation is unfolding. >> reporter: hundreds of mourners filled the streets of east jerusalem today for the funeral of a murdered palestinian teenager. his body was carried through the crowd surrounded by a sea of people. in other parts of the city palestinian protesters clashed with israeli police, who fired tear gas to disperse them. jerusalem has been on lockdown ahead of the first friday prayers of this ramadan. tensions remain high following mohammed's murder. his family says this grainy cc tv footage appears to show the moment he was taken. a car pulls up outside his house. two figures get out, then the car speeds away. 17-year-old mohammed's body was found by police in a nearby forest, burned so badly it needed dna identification. israeli authorities say they're still investigating the killing, but it follows the kidnapping and murder of three israeli
7:11 am
teenagers. their deaths set off angry calls from some israelis for revenge. his cousin showed us the room he shared with his brothers. his backpack ready for school. until wednesday, he took the lower bunk. she told us his death has already mobilized the palestinian community. >> it's anger. this is the word i can say, it's anger. everyone has that feeling inside. why? why mohammed? why are you doing this to us? >> reporter: the recent killings of children have been the latest spark for this most recent round of violence, but there are long simmering tensions here and mohammed's cousin also told us that he's just the latest victim in an endless cycle of violence that's gone on for decades. anthony? >> alex thanks. the california highway patrol is investigating this morning after an online video showed a chp officer hitting a woman repeatedly. this happened along the santa
7:12 am
monica freeway, interstate 10 in los angeles tuesday evening. the woman does not appear to be resisting. the driver who captured the video believes the officer used quote, excessive and brutal force. it's not clear what provoked the confrontation. the video starts with the officer trying to detain the woman. she moves away before he gets her to the ground. at one point a plainclothes officer arrived on the scene to help place the woman in handcuffs. in a statement the chp says it reviews any case where one of its officers uses force to determine whether it was appropriate. the va this morning is dealing with new fallout from its health care scandal. documents released by the house veterans affairs committee show more than 2.8 million dollars in bonuses were paid to va officials for their performance last year. some of the money went to executives in charge of the same va facilities now under investigation over claims of falsifying records dealing with wait times. wyatt andrews is in washington
7:13 am
where lawmakers are following the money trail. wyatt, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so here is that va bonus list. it is seven pages, single spaced. 292 senior executives at the va got performance bonuses in february. most of them were earned under the rules, but congressional investigators are questioning whether why 20 of the awards may have gone to executives connected to mismanagement or who supervised hospitals that falsified wait times for veterans. a bonus of more than $9,000 went to sharon helman the director of the va in phoenix, where 18 patients died waiting for appointments. helman has since been suspended and her bonus rescinded. almost $9,000 went to the phoenix regional director susan bowers, despite two ongoing whistleblower investigations. and $8200 went to cynthia mccormack, the hospital director in cheyenne wyoming, despite a formal va finding that the hospital had reported false wait times.
7:14 am
>> we've gone in and flagged probably 20 individuals who were in fact at troubled facilities and they continued to get bonuses year after year. >> reporter: in phoenix, debbie allen believes her husband, mel, died because of bonuses. mel allen died of bladder cancer after waiting eight months for care, but she says officials would not report long delays because that would cost them money. >> and now they're covering up the cover-up which is really a disgusting thing to do. for money, you know for bonuses. >> reporter: we could not reach sharon helman the suspended director in phoenix, for comment. susan bowers who has since retired, told us in a phone interview she was not aware of findings of manipulation of data and that her 2013 bonus was based on the many positive things done while i was there. cynthia mccormack referred us to va headquarters which said mccormack met her performance standards and got her bonus based on information available at the time.
7:15 am
>> we have suspected for a long time that bonuses were basically being given out like candy. that they were an entitlement to many of the supervisors at the va. >> reporter: the va has suspended its senior level bonuses for this year. as for the backlog of appointments, the va says over the last two months it's contacted 140,000 veterans to get them into care but 46,000 vets remain on official wait lists. margaret? >> wyatt, thank you. stock markets are closed this morning for independence day, but when trading resumes on monday, the dow is expected to open above 17,000 for the first time. that, thanks to a surge after yesterday's better-than-expected employment report. the economy added 288,000 jobs in june. it was the fifth straight month of gains of above 200,000. the unemployment rate fell to 6.1% the lowest since 2008. president obama trumpeted the numbers thursday. >> it gives you a sense that the
7:16 am
economy has built momentum that we are making progress. we've now seen almost 10 million jobs created over the course of the last 52 months. >> max wolff is the chief economists at a financial advisory firm. max, good morning. >> thank you for having me. >> is the economy building momentum here max? >> it's unambiguously good news. especially after that long winter we had this year. >> when you hear the idea of momentum, though, it leads to the question about the long-term unemployed. there's still around 3.1 million of them. why aren't they benefitting? >> so we're seeing those numbers fall but mostly because these people are falling out of the count and out of the economy, which is terrible. but it's a tough job market. we've done a lot of studies and know the following. if you've been out of work a long time you get kind of discriminated against and it gets that much harder to get
7:17 am
back in the labor force. two, your skills run off, you don't know the new software the new techniques so you get kind of shunned and you lose that magic that helps you get over the hump in a competitive job market and be the selected candidate. >> these job numbers which are encouraging, we still have no substantial wage growth do we? we're basically where we were last year, up 2% but that's about inflation. >> it's a great point. it obviously depends about what you think about substantial. the average american got a whopping $1.38 raise across the month of june. it's possible they were underwhelmed by that lordly sum, especially if you filled up your gas tank once even part of the way, you lost your entire raise. so we haven't seen actually any wage growth in over six years now and that's beginning to weigh on people because that's how you dig out, especially after a long rough patch we had coming out of 2008. >> so it's good news but not exactly like people are feeling it. >> most people probably only know the economy got better from reading it. i think when some people read it
7:18 am
or see it on your "cbs this morning" some folks see it as a taunt so a lot of folks are left behind here. >> they want to see it in my paycheck. >> thank you. in washington state a hiker is safe this morning after clinging to a mountain outside seattle. he was saved monday after calling 911 on his cell phone. >> he's just above the snow line. >> reporter: a seven-member rescue team, all volunteers helicoptered in to make the daring rescue. >> he's sitting on a three-foot ledge or so. >> reporter: more than 100 feet above the jagged rocks, this stranded hiker managed to hold on for more than an hour as he waited to be rescued along washington's chair peak. >> we're going to land and come back in there with our rescue team. >> reporter: 32-year-old miles mcdonna was lowered out to grab the hiker. he said this was the most
7:19 am
difficult rescue. >> let him know just keep holding to the rock don't grab me. everything is going to be all right. >> reporter: the entire mission lasted about 30 minutes and ended with the hiker and the entire rescue team back on solid ground, with no injuries. ahead on "cbs this morning" an ambulance driver falls asleep on the job and crashes. this morning why the cdc is warning d lots of sunshine coming our way but patchy fog over russian hill toward the golden gate bridge more of that in the evening hours as well but today warmer and hot in some of the valleys. 80s and 90s there. maybe as high as 91 in livermore. 83 in san jose. about 80 in redwood city. and 66 degrees in san francisco. looks like even hotter over the weekend, we could see some triple digits by monday.

"the new york times" says gas prices dropped ahead of the holiday weekend. reports the average price of regular is $3.66 a gallon. that's two cents lower than the week before, but gas remains at its highest price for this time of year since 2008 because of the ongoing crisis in iraq. "usa today" says one million pounds of tainted chicken is being recalled. foster farms sold the poultry in nine western states at the end of march. the government says the chicken is linked to an outbreak of salmonella. so far more than 500 people have been sickened in 27 states but there have not been any deaths.

kevin roper had gone more than 24 hours without sleep when police say he caused an accident on the new jersey turnpike killing one man and critically injuring three others including comedian tracy morgan. a cdc survey of 92,000 people across ten states and puerto rico reveals one in 25 admitted to dozing off behind the wheel in the last 30 days. the biggest offenders were men aged 18 to 34. the national highway traffic safety administration estimates that 100,000 police-reported crashes are a result of driver fatigue each year. >> fourth of july and holidays can be really problematic because we tend to disrupt our schedules to go on vacations and traveling, and then bring alcohol into the mix and you have a formula for disaster. >> reporter: according to the cdc, out of more than 33,000 fatal crashes annually in the u.s. as many as 7500 involve drowsy drivers. it rivals the more than 10,000
7:35 am
fatalities linked to alcohol-impaired driving. but most experts believe drowsy driving incidents are underreported because it's difficult to connect crashes to sleepiness. >> once you have those warning signs, missing the exits, not being attentive as you drive and head nodding, you are in a red alert situation. >> reporter: the cdc hopes releasing these statistics will open people's eyes to the dangers of drowsy driving. for "cbs this morning," jeff pegues, washington. an update on a story we've been telling you about. new fallout this morning for facebook over its secret psychological experiment on nearly 700,000 users. a watchdog group filed the complaint with the federal trade commission. the electronic privacy information center accuses the social media giant of breaking the law by not informing users or seeking their consent. >> facebook's little known data science group conducted the study. it was created in 2007.

"the wall street journal" says the team is comprised of about three dozen researchers, many with doctoral degrees. the group founded in 2007 has run hundreds of tests on facebook's 1.3 billion members. robert safian is manager of fast book magazine. should we be worried? >> facebook is testing what we do on that service all the time. this group has been doing a wide variety of things and other things are being tested all the time. the version of facebook that you have on your phone is maybe different than the one that i'm having. they're engineers and their culture is based on constantly testing different things on that site. that's happening across technology companies. >> so is this really illegal or unethical or neither? >> i think for a company like facebook that sees itself as an youd sider, as a renrenegade they are now a member of the mainstream media and need to act in a different way and they're
7:37 am
not used to what that is. >> they sometimes seem surprised that people get angry that they don't know what facebook is doing. >> well, facebook has had a series of things where privacy issues have been raised. they apologize and then they move on. >> sort of apologize. >> as is the case here. >> yeah. i think part of this is because users in the most part are not really concerned about this. they continue to use the service. they don't really worry about it. and facebook i'm sure has plenty of data that indicates that that's the case. so they have the freedom to act and extend things this way. >> but now they're a publicly traded company. >> that's correct. >> and there are different consequences when you're out there. >> i think the challenge for facebook is they need to become as sophisticated in their consumer engagement and communications as they are in their data. >> sheryl sandberg the coo of facebook, said it was poorly communicated and for that communication we apologize. we never meant to upset you. that's an apology for bad communication, not for doing
7:38 am
what they did. >> yeah if you think of it this way, if you're disney world and you allow people to come in free to your theme park and there are signs there that say when you come in we can watch you as you move around our theme park but it's free for you to be there, people would still come and be there. and i think facebook looks at the experience that they are providing to users in that same kind of way and our activities on that site are theirs to make use of. i think there is a challenge with the difference between the academic research that they're doing and the business research about how they're moving us around for financial reasons that they'd have to clarify in way that say they haven't done at this point. >> robert thank you very much. ahead, we'll preview a "48 hours" investigation into a death at sea. >> reporter: remember the newlywed who vanished on his honeymoon cruise? now nine years later and there are new fbi agents and a $100,000 reward to help crack
