7:04 am
miles an hour devastated the area. police say four people in the town of smithfield died after the storm caused several homes to collapse. rescue crews are looking for anyone who may still be trapped underneath the homes. >> we started searching each home. we've got search dogs. we're picking up parts of the house to see if anyone's underneath them. >> in maryland, people were caught off guard with how quickly the damage spread. >> it started getting a little windy and almost instantly something was here. >> in was insane. i mean we looked out the window and just saw blankets of rain and just trees falling everywhere. >> reporter: the picture was the same throughout the northeast. the fast-moving storm also battered maryland. one child was killed by a fallen tree. six others were injured. >> something like this has never happened in our history. it was a freak storm that came up.
7:05 am
unfortunately this is what is happening. >> reporter: camp officials say they rushed to move the children back inside but couldn't outrun the fast-moving winds. >> obvious lit was pretty traumatic for the campers because obviously they were there when it happened, but we've gotten them all together, all accounted for. >> reporter: and in pennsylvania, at least one tornado was reported. the widespread storm left over 300,000 homes and businesses in that state without power. the massive cleanup is already under way. norah, in terms of power, upstate new york there are about 50,000 people still without it. >> all right. vinita, thank you. this storm is also blamed for two tornadoes in northeast colorado. they cut a path several miles south of cleveland. they caused no major damage to homes. megan glaros of our cbs station wbbm is tracking the storm threat. >> good morning. there will be a risk for thunderstorms once again across the northeast but the intensity
7:06 am
and frequency could be there. there could be downpours, gusty winds and small hail and thunderstorms. heavy rain will be focused across portions of the mid-atlantic and down to the deep south over the next 48 hours. and on this wednesday there's a possibility of thunderstorms from california all the way through to the east coast. we're talking about maine to florida. washington state all the way down to the southern tip of texas. it's going to be an active day with the lone holdout. it should be the one dry area across the country. looking at main threats for severe weather today. the main threat will be strong winds and large hail across portions of colorado, nebraska, and kansas. norah and jeff? >> thank you, vinita. president obama is headed to texas. local leaders are ready to tell him what they think of the flooding of immigrants. president obama is asking congress for billions to address
7:07 am
it. major garrett is live. good morning. >> good morning. it will focus mostly on raising money for the re-election, not what the president used to call a humanitarian crisis but now referred to by as a humanitarian situation. by whatever term it's all become a big political headache. president obama arrived there tuesday. the white house hastily added an event later today in dallas to discuss the burgeoning crisis of unaccompanied migrants on the border. governor rick perry has criticized the government for foot-dragging. the president will not tour the u.s./mexico border. that provoked texas senator john cornyn who brought a map on the
7:08 am
senate flow. >> but if you refuse to go out of stubborn pride or whatever it is, then you're simply going to be ignorant of what are the best ways we can work together to solve this underlying problem. go to the border. just 500 miles away. "air force one." easy to get there. won't take much time. spend an hour on the ground. >> reporter: the white house is asking koj for $3.7 it's to house, feed and offer medical care and pay for judges and border patrol personnel to speed up the deportation personnel for those who don't qualify for asylum. a 2008 anti-trafficking law guarantees a hearing before deportation for anyone outside of u.s. seeking haven.
7:09 am
protests outside the white house many this world series add voe indicates those brought to the president personally. due process that leads to deportation is unjust. >> we believe that we as a country are not treating those victims as who they are. they are victims. we need to treat them that way. >> the president is advancing and they'll use video conferences to move them through the process, a process in the end that will probably result to many of the children being returned to the central american country that they fled. norah? >> thank you. and this morning air assault could lead to fighting on the ground. they will attack 160 targets inside gaza today and they may call up 40,000 reserve troops. meanwhile gaza is firing more rockets into southern israel.
7:10 am
those attacks are getting uncomfortably close. good morning. >> good morning. its was just after 8:00 here local time and yesterday they rang out time and time again across southern israel. not just in the town close to the border with gaza but here 40 miles away in tel aviv. its reigning missiles rained down on gaza in air strikes. israel's government says it's responding to rocket attacks by terrorists and trying to stop them. they're the group that governs the gaza strip. civilians have been caught up in the bombardment. palestinian doctors claim more than two dozen people died yesterday.
7:11 am
several of them children. this man said his brother was killed sitting in his own home. he said, what can i say. we'll leave it up to god. but instead of stopping the rocket attacks palestinian militants are now firing missiles deep sbeer the territory. a leader from mammas said all of israelis are now legitimate targets. on the outskirts of tel aviv this wedding party was cut short by a wail of targets although it was intercepted by the iron dome anti-missile system. but one missile hit 60 miles from gaza, the furthest palestinian militants have ever struck and there are other signs that the militants are becoming more sophisticated. hamas claimed responsibility for this amphibious incursion yesterday onto a beach near an israeli bachls all five fighters were eventually killed.
7:12 am
both say they're forced to act by the other side, but in doing so, both sides are fueling the violence. and in this part of the world, they look as far as they have ever been from a real lasting peace. jeff? >> holly, thank you very much. this morning we learn birds caused a deadly u.s. helicopter crash. four u.s. crew members died when their helicopter went down during training in eastern england. the copter hid a not of geese. it knocked the pilot and co-pilot unconscious. the cdc is looking into a startling mystery. they want to know how six vials of small pox has been stored. they stumbled on the deadly pathogens. the tubes sat there apparently for decades. dr. jon lapook is with us.
7:13 am
good morning. >> good morning. >> we know there are two labs in the world, cdc and the one in russia. how did this happen? >> they come across a cardboard box with kohn and le sees old test tubes. one is labeled typhus mumps and then he sees smallpox. >> i understand even the white house was informed. >> right. the national security council was informed, and the reason is smallpox was supposedly eradicated in 1980. and all of the world's supplies were supposedly destroyed in the two places you mentioned. so the question is how did it end up in the storage concern and that was of great concern. >> was anybody exposed in. >> nobody was exposed. they immediately moved it to a secure facility.
7:14 am
they analyzed it into the wee hours. >> some workers a few months ago mishandled samples of anthrax and now smallpox which is supposed to be gone. roy's going on? >> i think they said clearly there was a break in protocol and make sure i nerves it happens again. they say it's like finding a babe ruth card in their attic. they're encouraging everyone in the united states to do an inventory. >> it could be considered a bioterrorism threat. >> yes. >> thank you. law enforcement officials in southern california are trying to calm tensions. the video captured a highway patrol officer punching a woman
7:15 am
repeatedly last week. as teri okita reports it's bridging back the confrontation in los angeles. >> reporter: we know the woman in this video is marlene pinnock, a 51-year-old great dwranld mother who was seen walking on a business california freeway on july 1st. >> why is the officer entitled to anonymity? obviously you're trying to cover something up. >> reporter: the chp says the officer tried to order her to stop and she refused. >> the response was one of the grave concerns if not shocking. >> caller: the cpp commissioner met with community leaders tuesday. >> we hope this was not an abusz by other cph offices. >> on local radio questions are
7:16 am
being raised about the officers state of mind. he also worked on the rodney king beating case. would you say it's one of the worst case you've seen? >> it's the worst case i've seen by a woman being beated by a teenager. >> reporter: the chp commissioner said he's not allowed by law to release the name. >> i would like to see them take action and fire them so he's not able to do this to someone else's mother or grandmother. and this morning brazil's world cup dreams and high expectations are wiped out. one newspaper calls it a historic humiliation. they gave up a staggering seven
7:17 am
goals to germany. it was brazil's worst la loss in 94 years. it left hundreds of soccer fans stunned. >> many argue that would not have made much of a difference. >> this is absolutely beyond belief. >> brazil suffered the worst defeat in cup history following germany's lead. the germans tore through the brazilian defense with machine-like efficiency scoring the first goal in the 11th minute. at one point germany netted four goals in seven minutes. >> he plays it.
7:18 am
trying to make sure and they do make sure. seven. and brazil had just been played off the puck. >> translator: i want to apologize to the world, to the people, brazilian defensor david luis said. i just wanted to see my people smile. >> brazilian fans watched the world cup victory slip away. before this loss they hadn't lost a home game since 1970. a mass robbery marked a stampede of world cup fans and outside sao paolo locals set a bus on fiefrmt police are investigating it. the stunning defeat at the haends of the germans will halt

7:37 am
earlier? >> three important things. one, if you know you have it, we can start the currently available treatments as soon as possible, but more importantly we have to develop more effective treatments and the only way to do that is to identify people in a earliest stages. most have failed because we tried too late. >> what do you do if you find it early? >> as we develop new therapies we want to modify the disease, reduce sim poms and prolong people's quality of life. >> gayle said this morning if you find out you're going to get alzheimer's within a year, what are you going do? we were talking more about knocking things off the bucket list rather than things because it's too late. >> there's a lot of planning

line, where i do they go. casino revenue plunged from a high of $5.2 billion in 2006 to just $2.9 billion last year. shouldn't market saturation have been part of the industry's calculations? >> yes. simple as that. absolutely. if i was a marketing guy in the casino, they should be firing me. >> reporter: the mayor's solution, look beyond the slots. at the bogota, look at the revenue from other things like the shows. >> they live much closer to another option. they choose us because we have a better product. if you don't provide that in atlantic city, people will go to a closer competitor. >> and the signs of a changing landscape are evident. there are reports that it will be turned into a new luxury hotel without a casino, gayle.

8:21 am
20th, 2010 this green beret lie dead on his bunk. days before coming home to his wife and daughter aalexia. >> i told her daddy wasn't going to come home anymore and she screamed and screamed. i think that was probably the worst part. >> adding to her grief was the mystery surrounding her husband's death. she was stunned when the army labeled his death as accident from mixed drug intoxication. an autopsy found high levels of opiates mixed with heroin and marijuana. there was no evidence how it was ingested and now signs of prior abuse. >> you find out heroin is in his system and marijuana is in his system. what's your reaction when you see that?
8:22 am
>> i was shocked. he didn't want to even take tylenol for his headaches because he didn't like it. >> what do you think happened to him that night? what do you think happened? >> i don't know. that's what i want to know. >> that determination grew when the army declared his dealt not in the line of duty not in the line of conduct. it tarnished his military record and denied death benefits. she appealed it. it revealed that on the night before he died sergeant vinetz was in pain from combat injuries and seeking medical attention. because of missing medical records and lack of evidence that he took the drugs on his own free will, special forces argued the case should be re-evaluated. but the army refused to reverse its decision, leaving sergeant vinetz's family without the education and medical benefits on which they counted. >> this family is not being
8:23 am
taken care of in the way that they should be. >> reporter: amy nigh berger miller works for taps, a transition program that helps thousands of military families. >> there's so me questions about what haened the night he died that just don't make sense and at the end of the day what we still have is a widow and two little children who are without benefits, whose husband and father will never come home. >> reporter: for her it's not only a battle of benefits. it's a question of her husband's death should erase his distinguished service in life. >> he's somebody who sacrificed so much and has gotten nothing in return. >> ten years that my husband gave to the military. he's now just another file on someone's death. >> what is it that drives you to clear your husband's name?
8:24 am
>> his legacy. it's for my children. my children deserve one day to be able to stand there and be proud of their dad. >> taps says it rarely sees not in the line of duty rulings especially involving special forces. this ruling could be worth as much as a million dollar. >> gayle, this is such a heartbreaking story because you think about five tours of duty over ten years and the family doesn't get the benefits. is there any chance the army will reverse the ruling? it's up to the review board. it requires proof. there's so many questions in this case. where did he get the drugs. did he know what he was taking? we also don't know exactly which medications he may have been prescribed. >> powerful and heartbreaking, gayle. nice to see you.

8:32 am
son in a private capacity as a private family. >> aft first they damt want to hire extra help, remember that? but the royal couple eventually hired a nanny whose credentials include self-defense, high-speed driving and handling the paparazzi. >> i didn't know nannies had that stuff. jake close gave his opinion about the controversy to a pennsylvania newspaper. his name and photo were printed. police saw it and arrested him on sunday for jumping bail in a dui case. in the year 2000, carrie and miranda turn eed cupcakes into case. culinary arts can go stale. a national chain of cup cake shops closed their dires on monday, telling their employees, this is your last day, you get to go home, yikes.

cbs news analyst mellody hobson is in chicago. good morning. >> good morning. >> i went to the crumbs in my neighborhood just to have a moment of silence just to say, yes, it is true. what actually went wrong? >> this is the classic case of the one-hit wonder. this is a company that built its entire business on one product. the product was a fad. we have seen this movie before. tcby, mrs. fields, krispy kreme. in those situations those companies managed to survive but much smaller from their peak. a company in the case of crumbs basically by the end of the day at the time they decided to shut the business, their name was pretty indiggive of how much money they had in the bank, which was very little. >> does this mean the craze is over or crumbs was too big? >> i think the craze is over. this business expanded during
8:34 am
the time the fad was at its peak and then you're talking about a business where there are no barriersentry. there's no properties you need. you need a mixer and recipes. so lots of lots of people came in and did that. at the same time our tastes changed and our interests in cupcakes has definitely started to wane. >> so there are crumbs cakes selling on ebay for up to $300. gayle is bidding on those if you know. >> gayle wants the black-and-white cookie. >> that's right, norah. set him straight. >> is there any hope for a comeback or is it over? >> you don't know. this is america. anything is possible. maybe they'll license their product to a food company and we can go bystander the batter.

8:37 am
he said his cry is not just a reflex of the score. it's also a reflex flection of fans. when the team scores there is an explosion of the stadium, he says. the fans shake, jump, dance and he has to make the crowd feel it. he quickly became a hall mark of brazil's beautiful game. today the call has been adopted by commentators across the globe. there's the italian opera. the spanish, announcers spend years perfecting their pitch and personality.

8:39 am
>> translator: the goal is obviously the best part of the game, he says. there are very talented players, and even when they don't score a goal, it's immensely pleasurable to describe that play. above all, it's a well played game. now in the case of last night's game that sound signaling utter despair for brazilians but he announced they will be back to win the next world cup in 2018 and chances are he'll be calling that tournament as well. >> they said you got to hear it so many times brazilians got isn't that good? >> like that. >> i got that from devin on the studio crew. i love. i'm going to pull for the woman though. >> speaking of, it's all male announcers we saw in that piece. do you want to practice at all? >> no. >> norah. >> goal! >> there you go. >> goal! >> that sounds kind of like a

odyssey" took a giant leap into the future. it may be the greatest science fiction movie of all time. a book looked at how its vision was. we look at the man who put it all on the big screen. >> reporter: good morning. this is about a trip back in time to the future. the future was the year 2001. you may remember the movie about it. and stanley kubrick, the very private director of a space odyssey lived here. now there's the commemoration of the movie that many people think was about a lot more than science fiction.
8:45 am
sadly the future isn't what it used to be. from the perspective of the mid-1960s, it was about spaceships waltzing their way on the regular commuter run between earth and the moon. real space flight turned out to be a little difference from the idolized version predicted in the 1968 movie. fewer cabin attendants for one thing. but the exquisite celestial dance con veeved in film well before man actually went to the moon turned out to look a lot like the real thing. especially compared to the industry standards dating from the buck rogers days. >> it's 100 years ahead of anything i ever saw. >> reporter: kubrick's depiction of life in space seem 100 years ahead of anything the audience had ever seen. and now 50 years after he and

8:47 am
about the search for the civilization that left a monolithic calling card with the ancestors of the human race. about how those ancestors developed, the cut from the primitive bone tool to the spaceship is still celebrated as one of the great transitions in film history. but most memorably, it's about technology out of control in the form of how the homicidal computer. >> open the pod bay doors. >> i'm sorry, dave. i'm afraid i can't do that. >> reporter: it's hard to describe what the commemorative project is except to say that it's big and it's heavy. >> you may help me with this because it's massive, this monolith. >> reporter: he's the author of the project. >> this is a history of how the movie was paid.
8:48 am
you'd unpack this the way you would unpack the scientific secrets of the monolith. >> reporter: keep talking. the package contained many of the iconic frames from the movie and production notes. spaceships like this never happen bud some of the other technology has. >> in the 1960s, the idea of having a brief pace to talk to people around the world and look at on tv is astonishing. this is an integrated laptop computer system. >> reporter: "2001 space odyssey" bachl a touch-tone what's it all mean psychedelic what's it all mean in the '60s. but for the price tag the book doesn't solve that riddle either. it, like the movie, endures. 2001 was a future that never really happened. just as well, then, that we'll
