welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west we're seeing a number of new explosions in gaza. the blast putting out massive plumes of smoke. we have seen some of the biggest attacks so far. at least 100 palestinians were killed today alone. >> zraelisreal says the worst is yet to come and there is no sign of peace. >> by every indication, this battle is escalating warning people to be ready for a prolonged war. and the evidence of that was swift in coming last night. israel pounded 70 targets in gaza, one was the palestinian news operation al oxid that is transferring messages to hamas
7:04 am
fighters. isr eali defense forces were speaking. at gaza's lone power plant, one of three fuel tanks hit. power is down to three hours a day. now it may be even less. it follows a day when palestinian children were among the hardest hit. he a shell exploded as kids were playing with toy guns or on a swing. the missile came straight down wassim told us. i saw bodies everywhere. israel released pictures saying it was a hamas rocket gone astray. hamas blamed the attack on israel. among the dead, this child, his father was a driver for cbs news. jamaal was 10. a smile and a fan of soccer. friends brought this body ohm.
7:05 am
oh god, oh god he cried out. inside, his mother and grandmother only hours earlier sent jamaal out to play. a life taken away. and on the same day, another life given. a baby born by cesarean after her mother was killed, now cared by her grandmother. they named her shama after her mother. gaza today has another child born of war and sadness, alive, but who will never feel the touch of her mother's love. there is suffering on both sides. five israeli soldiers were killed yesterday when hamas fighters emerged from a tunnel and opened fire. five israeli families devastated. norah. >> barr petersen, thank you. and minutes ago we got word that an all-night drama from more than 150 whale watchers is coming to an end. they are back on land after their boat got stuck off the
7:06 am
massachusetts coast yesterday. >> good morning. the cruise set out yesterday afternoon, but just ten minutes from starting its return home the whale watching ship got caught on a loan. after spending the night at sea more than 13 miles off the coast, passengers waved and cheered as they arrived. the 150 passengers and six crew members all arrived safe. a passenger said divers tried to disengage them from the line multiple times. the coast guard said it was safer to keep them on the ship rather than to transfer them to another vessel. our local station is reporting the boat operated on just one propeller in order to make the trip to shore. >> thanks. and not far away people in a boston suburb are cleaning up
7:07 am
from the first ever tornado to hit their community. the tornado touched yesterday with 120-mile-per-hour winds. 65 homes and businesses are damaged but there are no serious injuries. two funnel clouds were also spotted in denver. passengers at denver international airport took shelter. no major damage is reported. look at this, also in the west, flash flooding hit mt. charleston, north of las vegas. a powerful storm sent water rushing through the foothill community. it damaged six homes. and more strain on the relationship between russia and united states. the add obama administration accuses the russian government of breaking an important nuclear treaty. bill plante is it white house where officials say they have proof that russia cheated. bill, good morning. >> reporter: bell, good morning. the president sent a letter monday to russian president vladimir putin calling on russia to observe the terms of the treaty.
7:08 am
the white house says it it revealed the details of that letter. officials here say the administration believes that russia has tested ground-launched missiles, a clear violation of a treaty nearly 30 years old. on monday, president obama notified russia's vladimir putin that officials have proof that russia has violated the intermediate range nuclear forces treat or inf. this coming done day after secretary of state john kerry called foreign minister sergey lavrov to address the situation. in 1987, president reagan and soviet union president gorbachev signed the treaty. it was seen as the turning point in the cold war. suspicions that russia was tested ground-launched missiles began to circulate in 2008. but this is the first time the u.s. has made a formal accusation. in a statement to cbs news, white house officials say they encouraged russia to return to
7:09 am
compliance with obligations under the treaty. and to eliminate a prohibited items in a verifiable manner. russia has denied the allegations saying the matter is closed. these violations have gone on for years. but it is no accident that this protest is coming now. the obama administration is deliberately attempting to bring all possible pressure to bear on vladimir putin, including more sanctions. the u.s. and the europeans have agreed. and the europeans are expected to announce today significant new sanctions targeting russia's finance, energy and military. if they do, then they know here it's difficulty getting all the europeans on the same page, but if they do, the u.s. will follow with more sanctions later this week. norah. >> that's a big deal. bill, thank you very much. and the deadliest outbreak of the ebola virus in history is spreading in africa this morning. but the question is, can it reach the united states? nearly 700 people have died in west africa. >> this morning the cdc has a health alert for american doctors. our chief medical correspondent jon lapook is with us to examine
7:10 am
the potential spread of the virus. good morning. >> good morning. >> could it come here? >> it could come here, but the question is if it comes here could it spread easily in the cdc field? no. the incubation period is 2 to 21 days. theoretically, a person could feel perfectly fine, come here and become ill and go to the emergency room. what precautions should we take given that incubation period? >> well, i think the big thing which is why the cdc issued the alert if somebody shows up in the emergency room or my office with flu-like symptoms we have to think locally. it could be sars, ebola or bird flu, recognizing it early is
7:11 am
important. the cdc has a special test. then you get the person in isolation, track down the contacts and treat them. >> what can they do to keep it from spreading? >> well, this is a huge problem. the number one problem i'm hearing is mistrust among doctors. people come into the hospital when they don't leave. they're thinking that something bad is going on. they're thinking that maybe the care is not on timmal. >> what about the two american care workers who have ebola in the hospital? how are they doing? >> i just seconds ago got off the phone with the cdc and there's no known news. the family of the physician returned, they left liberia
7:12 am
before the doctor got sick, and you cannot spread it until you have symptoms. so that is good news. >> so the family is okay. dr. lapook, thank you so much. and southwest airlines is accused of flying planes that should not have been in the sky. and now, it faced a $12 billion fine by the faa. jeff pegues is outside of washington with the airlines. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, the faa says southwest put planes in the sky that were not faa-approved for flight. and now the company is facing the second largest proposed fine for an airline. the $12 million proposed fine is a penalty for an airline that they believe ignored safety regulations for repairs to get planes back in the skies. according to documents cbs news obtained the repairs were supposed to address the cracking of fuselage lap joints which could result in sudden decompression of the aircraft something that could have been catastrophic in light. the faa alleges that southwest failed to monitor procedures beginning in 2006. scott brenner is a former faa
7:13 am
spokesman. >> if they were using an unapproved method to fix these aircraft. >> reporter: the faa says the planes were not supposed to be in the air and heavy that's airline put them back in service for another 30,000 flights. >> and they have very particular standards that they want other airlines to adopt. when an airline goes off on its own and tries to do something new, that worries the faa because that is not a proven method. >> reporter: in response to a multimillion-dollar fine, southwest said the repairs were made years ago. and safety is paramount, and we always strive for full compliance. southwest's boeing 737s have come under scrutiny before. in 2011, a jet was forced to make an emergency landing when a nearly five-foot hole opened in the roof midflight. it prompted the airline to virtually ground the entire fleet. and in 2009, a foot-long hole opened in the tom of a southwest airlines jet, also forcing an in which emergency landing. that same year southwest agreed to pay a $7.5 million fine for not properly inspecting planes but in this latest case because the planes were not faa-approved
7:14 am
according to faa documents the planes were not air worthy. we asked the faa about that, they said passengers were not in danger. southwest airlines has 30 days to respond to these latest allegations. charlie. a texas man is behind bars this morning. he is charged with sending hundreds of letters that included a mysterious white powder. bob orr is in washington to look at the mailing center around the world. bob good morning. >> since 2008, someone has been blanketing the u.s. with white powder envelopes filled with angry threats. more than 500 letters have been sent to u.s. embassies abroad and also offices and schools in 48 states and the district of columbia. schools in boston got letters, so did schools in washington. so did super bowl hotels around new jersey's metlife stadium back in january. the letters in plain envelopes with typed addresses carry the same disjointed rant. quote, al qaeda back.
7:15 am
the letters warned many times. special thing for you what the hell where are you scooby-doo, internal affairs, fbi." none of the letter 0 contained any poison but all of them were mailed around areas of around dallas. that's precisely when the fbi arrested a man named hand ming jon. back in 2002, he told police he heard voices in his head and believed at the time that law enforcement was after him. now he is in custody. nobody's been hurt by the mailings and first responders expended thousands of hours and likely millions of dollars, norah, in chasing those threats. and now to the closing chapter in a long ugly saga. after months of controversy it's all over for l.a. clippers owner donald sterling. he's losing his team even if he
7:16 am
appeals the court ruling. it's a go. ben tracy is here with the final blow. good morning. >> this really is a slam dunk for shelly sterling. she won on all counts and can now sell the clippers for a record-setting $2 billion. but her estranged husband's lawyer said she only won because she plotted against her husband and schemed to take away the team. >> i feel wonderful, thank you. >> reporter: in sterling versus sterling it came down to who the judge thought was telling the truth in his ruling the judge said rochelle sterling's testimony was more credible than donald's. >> i didn't know which way it was going to go. i just tried to do the best thing for our family and for everybody else. plans to sell the clippers to former microsoft ceo steve
7:17 am
ballmer for $2 billion. she took control of the team after two doctors determined donald sterling's has alzheimer's. his lawyers say he was duped by his wife into taking those medical tests. >> we shouldn't be judging this on the basis of personalities. we should be judging, has he done a competent job putting together a contending and competitive team, instead of everybody jumping on him because he made some airing statement to a girlfriend. >> reporter: the trial's low point came earlier this month when the 80-year-old billionaire said to his wife of nearly 60 years "get away from me, you pig." >> we do have love for each other. and i hope it will all work out between us. it will. and everything will be good. >> now, despite all of his efforts to fight all of this, once the team is sold, donald sterling will get half the money which is a cool $1 billion so that's quite a consolation prize. >> indeed. so when does steve ballmer take over? >> steve ballmer and the nba and shelly sterling would like to have the sale closed by august 15th because that's when the nba owners next meet because
7:18 am
they want to approve the sale and let everybody move on. >> steve ballmer is a basketball guy. >> he is, tried to buy a team recently. and now a good one. 100 homes near yosemite park are threatened by wildfire. the crews are attacking the fire from the air. it's 5% contained. it already claimed one home. four square miles have burned since saturday. evacwees are returning to their homes. the sand fire is 75% contained but 13 homes were lost. an update on that deadly lightning strike in venice beach, california. a surfer, one of the 12 injured remains in critical condition this morning. life guards raced to help victims after lightning hit the beach sunday. electricity surged through the water. a 20-year-old was pulled from the ocean unresponsive and later died. his uncle called him a joy. >> he had such a bright life. he had such a zest for life. he was the kind of kid you just wanted to have in the room. >> experts say it's rare for
7:19 am
