him guilty. this is is "early start weekend." he calls it the scariest moment of his life. a weather chan aal storm chaser who quickly became the chasee. he survived, but his big, bad vehicle, not so lucky. pelted with pepper spray and targeted with tear gas. a brutal police crack down the worst riot turkey has ever seen. edith bunker was a trailblazer. >> we could eat out tonight. >> oh, yes. >> this morning we remember a tv icon. it's sunday, june 2nd. good morning, i'm alison kosik.
3:01 am
first up this morning, turkey is bracing for what could be a third day of violent and massive protests. turkey's prime minister is demanding an end to the unrest and hundreds of people are under arrests and dozens are injured. let's go to ivan watson in istanbul, turkey. ivan, the demonstrations began over the government's plan to close a park, but is this something that turned into something so much bigger? i think we're having problem getting, ivan, can you hear me? >> much bigger. i'm coming to you, this is like
3:02 am
the times square of turkey's largest city, istanbul, more than 12 million people. i can hear you fine. if you can hear me okay, alison. the demonstrators succeeded in pushing the police out. fought to keep demonstrators out of here for 36 hours. they used water canons, huge clouds of tear gas here for 36 straight hours. pepper spray and finally withdrew yesterday afternoon tens of thousands of people came in. we are going to wheel over here. this is the park that started it all. a couple dozen people picnicking holding a sit in last monday and they didn't want the park demolished by the government to build a shopping mall and the riot police attacked them with water canons. check out this police van, alison. this is the result of what happened when the people thought they were pushed too far, that there was unnecessary use of force by the riot police agains
3:03 am
government simply wasn't listening to residents of this city who wanted a say in the development of the center of their city. now this is a referendum. the biggest protest movement we've seen against turkey's prime minister who was elected to office. a very popular turkish politician a close ally of barack obama facing the biggest blow, really, to his image and his government after ten years in power. alison. >> ivan watson in istanbul, turkey, thank you. now, let's go to the midwest and the damage assessment from the strong storms and tornadoes. in missouri, storms are being blamed for three deaths all by drowning. flooding followed several tornadoes that hit the state friday night. >> this is a very long, damaged track. over ten miles of significant
3:04 am
damage across st. charles county and st. louis county that has caused dozens and dozens of houses literally to be blown up. you couple that with the water and drownings that we had in southern missouri and this is a storm that packed a very difficult punch and this will test the people of missouri to be strong in our response. >> i want to show you this video here from the airport in maryland heights, missouri. located just outside st. louis. the security cameras caught the moments the storm blew through. a tornado touched down in the st. louis area. then there's oklahoma. the storms are being blamed for nine deaths there. two children and seven adults. the worst of the damage came just west of oklahoma city and that's where our george howell is today in union city, oklahoma. george, i know you have been on the ground in that area since the tornado outbreak began two weeks ago. how widespread is this damage? >> alison, good morning. this was hit or miss, really.
3:05 am
but, here's the thing, when you have a big storm like this, park itself over such a large metropolitan area, it's a storm. just a big cloud system that can drop funnel after funnel in many different places. so, you know, it was really anybody's guess where these tornadoes would hit. we're at a place called elreno, just south of oklahoma city. this is where the strongest tornado came through from this storm, an ef-3 tornado. you can see the result of a tornado like this just destroying homes on this block. only one home kind of standing, not really. a very strong tornado that came through here. when you compare that, you know, to what we saw two weeks ago. an ef-4 tornado in shawnee that killed two and in moore that killed 24 tornadoes. much stronger tornadoes in that sense, but what we dealt with the other day was just as dangerous. a big, big storm system that
3:06 am
continued to bloom and drop funnel after funnel after funnel. >> jorgeorge, let me ask you th. many say they're used to this sort of thing around tornaze to season. have they talked to you about that? >> absolutely. you know, people are accustomed to storms like this, just like if you live on the gulf coast, you're ready for hurricanes. if you live in chicago where i live now, you're ready for cold weather. here's the thing, we are talking about two weeks of tornado after a tornado. again, it was a very short amount of time for so much damage. people are absolutely talking about that. you'll remember, alison, there was a benefit concert here to help support the people who were so badly devastated in moore, oklahoma. the cleanup there continues and will continue for several months, if not for the next year. you know, these were very powerful storms. people who lived here for a long
3:07 am
time, they even say, you know, they haven't seen something like this for a while. >> all right, george howell, thank you. after the tornado in moore, oklahoma, two weeks ago people there also got hit by rain in the days after the disaster. what is it going to be like for people cleaning up around oklahoma city today. meteorologist karen maginnis is in the severe weather center. karen, good news or bad news? >> there is a mixture. for today, the weather is going to be just fine. the temperature in the mid-70s. that's very different from the day of the tornadoes when the temperatures soared up to triple digits, 102 to 105 degrees. today 75. rain chances zero. we go to monday and the rain chances do start to go up. they really pick up by tuesday and then into wednesday with mid-80s expected there and each day about a 60% likelihood you'll see some showers or thunderstorms. now, we looked ahead and the
3:08 am
weather center says a slight chance for severe weather. if you are watching out out of new york city and in boston, not during the day, i think you have most of the day to enjoy it for the weekend, but as you go into the afternoon hours and the evening, it looks like those rain showers really do start to pick up. how about the central mississippi? we have seen days and days of rainfall or the days that we have seen the rain, it has been very significant. you may remember over the last 24 hours, they collected about five inches of rainfall right around st. louis. well, now those rivers are really rising. the mississippi river could be at its fourth highest in history. and those records go back to the early 1800s. flood stages at 30 feet and going into the middle of the workweek, we could so the fourth highest flood stage along the mississippi river at st. louis in history.
3:09 am
since record keeping. what does that mean? some of the local parks are going to flood and also farmland and they're saying in alton, some of the locks around that region could be closed to navigation because the river is just too high. all right, as we look out, a broader look across the country, cold front makes its way towards the eastern seaboard. high pressure in behind it moves in. bringing some very nice, crisp air. temperatures running below normal for this time of year. here's a former system traveling towards the east. for washington, d.c., not so much for today but going in for monday, we'll start to see the showers as storms pick up. the same for raleigh, north carolina. also in atlanta and in new orleans and where does our severe risk come in? well, today, all the way from northern sections of virginia, extending up towards maine. but the storm prediction center also says the likelihood of tornadoes can't rule out the possibility of an isolated storm. but for the most part, it looks
3:10 am
like hail, high winds and also the chance for some pretty heavy downpours. but all in all, not bad for this sunday. but can't rule out those thunderstorms as we head towards the afternoon. alison, on the way back, enjoy your flight and it looks like some pretty nice weather for flying today. >> good to know, karen maginnis, thank you. passionate, dedicated and inspiring how one colleague is remembering a fellow firefighter who was killed along with three others in a ferocious blaze in houston. she made edith bunker a household name. actress jean stapleton is dead at the age a of 90. what hollywood is saying about her distinguished career. have a good night. here you go. you, too.

but i don't watch it because i don't want it ever to creep into anything else i'm doing. maybe she was talking about her voice. of course, that was jean stapleton best known for her iconic role as tv's edith bunker on "all in the family." stapleton died at her home in new york. she was 90. tributes from across the celebrity spectrum. bette midler described her portrayal of edith as unforgettable. rest in peace. and former cnn host larry king had this to say. >> best way to put it, tv legend, brilliant actress, dominated the role and made it her own. look at that face and that's edith bunker. when an actress can do that, as

i think the american audience was ready to have a show dealing with the subject. >> reporter: in 1979, stapleton ended her role as edith while co-star continued to appear on "archie's place" the actress returned to the stage and played supporting roles in "you've got mail" and "michael" before retiring from acting in her 80s. she will always be remembered in a tv series. >> it is a privilege to be part of such a groundbreaker and of such quality. a feeling of immense, well, you know, pride. >> happy birthday. >> reporter: rob reiner who played her son-in-law told cnn in a statement, "jean was a brilliant comedian with exquisite timing."

welcome back and thanks for starting your morning with us and a special welcome to our troops watching on the american forces network. i'm alison kosik. it's the bottom of the hour. now, to our top story this hour. the destruction in the midwest after deadly tornadoes ripped across the heartland. let's get you caught up on what we know. the death toll is now nine, including a mother and her child. missouri's governor said three of the dead drowned following friday's powerful storms. of the 104 treated for injuries after the storm, 11 are still in the hospital. the national weather service said they found evidence of an ef-3 tornado which can carry winds up to 165 miles per hour. at one point, power was cut off
3:30 am
to 200,000 homes and businesses and while most of that has been restored, three oklahoma city medical facilities are still running on generator. cnn's chad myers has been in oklahoma tracking that storm from the very beginnings on friday afternoon. he joins us now from oklahoma city to walk us through the danger and damage. good morning, chad. >> alison, this whole mess started on friday, late friday, actually, about 4:45 in the afternoon. a late start for severe weather. that was part of the problem. the day was warm, it was sunny. all the way from 11:00 to 1:00 to 2:00, when some storms should be popping and cooling things off, we had no storms. all we had was more sunshine. by the time 4:30 came around, it was 42 degrees watching this storm develop. watching tours go from cumulus puffy clouds to 50,000 feet tall in 20 to 25 minutes.
3:31 am
these things really exploded before our eyes. we were watching what looked like pieces of call flour we knew it was going to be a severe weather kind of day. the first tornado of the day. although some storms went othe north for a while, they started turning to the right and then they went south. all the storm chaser video that you see that didn't go very well for some people is because the storm started turning towards them. people, as you storm chase, you want to be south of the storm looking north to it because the storm should move away from you. that didn't happen. exact opposite. the storm drove south and right into them and they're trying to get out of the way and some people didn't get out of the way quick enough. we were chased 50 miles south of oklahoma city by one storm after another and it was hard to get out of the way. the tornados did their damage and it rained and rained for
3:32 am
show hours. we got back to our hotel friday night, saturday morning and it just kept raining. now all that water has been running off making this big mess back here. this was just kind of a colvert and now all the dirt is gone. just complety washed away and this is what we're seeing for the next couple of days. this flood threat maybe you're not seeing flooding now or maybe tomorrow, this water has to run downhill and run. this bubble of water from oklahoma city may flood other towns along the way. now, the wind's out of the north and completely different day today and different day on monday and tuesday with no severe weather. by the time next week rolls around, the whole thing sets up, again. more tornadoes on the ground. remember, i know kids are out for summer break, but it's still spring, according to mother nature. alison? >> okay, chad myers, thanks. now chad was talking about the
3:33 am
amazing scenes caught by the storm chasers on friday, but it's easy to forget just how dangerous that job could be and those men and women are risking their lives. i want to show you this. the tornado hunt 2013 truck that belonged to the weather channel team and this is how it ended up this way. meteorologist mike bettis and his crew got caught in the tornado and at one point their truck was lifted off the ground and thrown 600 feet into a field. amazingly and thankfully everyone was able to walk away from the scene. bettis did suffer some minor injuries. here's him talking about what it was like inside that car. >> you were just married six months ago. you thought about your wife. what was it you thought about when you were up there?
3:34 am
>> good question, dave. >> it's tough. >> you know, i just saw my wife's face and i thought, you know, that's my life. i don't want to give that up just yet. >> we're going to have a live interview with mike bettes coming up in the 8:00 hour. i want to show you this video in maryland heights, missouri, that's an american flag whipping around on the left side of your screen there. maryland heights is just outside st. louis, which along with the oklahoma city area took the brunt of last week's deadly storms. so, if you ever wondered how is it that a tornado can destroy someone's home turning it into rubble but at the same time leave some unlucky neighbor's
3:35 am
house untouched? look at this damage from oklahoma. it happens time and time again. he's been looking into this phenomenon with storm chaser reid timer. >> just across the street from this severely damaged home, we noticed something. this trail. i'm trying to explain why it looked like this. what are we looking at here? >> right here is the path of a suction vortex. you have a multi-vortex tornado. you can see in the video, you had the main cone, almost wedged. and just below that, you get these miniature tornadoes that will spin underneath called suction vortsies and how strong the wind speeds get. they're the reason why one house will sustain severe damage while the one next door will look almost untouched. >> we're almost 100 yards away from this house that was completely flattened next to some other houses that were severe damaged but not flattened like this. this just seems to spin right
3:36 am
off and go into the distance. >> the main tornado is making a left-hand turn and it had the suction vortsies in it and on the back end, a bigger one came right down this path and probably hit that house and then went this way and you can see it down this path on the wheatfield and took a hard turn. they're very quick and they'll be very strong. unstable configuration because they're so strong and burst into turbulence and be gone. if you get hit, it could have 400 to 500-mile-per-hour winds at the surface. >> when we pointed this out to you, you were pretty amazed by it. >> this is one of the worst vortex damage i've seen. i've seen that develop and rip a tree out of the ground and then disappear in the blink of an eye. they can be short lived. that is a big mystery of tornado science. >> ed lavandera, thank you. now to london and another

great dance sensation. cnn has told a new irs inspector general report coming out next week will detail excess spending at the irs and this video spotlighted as a video of way irs employees wasted taxpayer doct dollars. this video produced for a 2010 irs conference was unacceptable and inappropriate use of government funds. the irs and the government as a whole now have strict new policies and procedures in place for taxpayer funds are being used appropriately. we are also told the irs spent a lot more. $60,000 to make a pair of different videos, spoofs of gilligan's island and "star trek." the production value is better than the dance, but doesn't look like they spent much on acting lessons. >> sorry about the uniforms,

3:44 am
sold ought costco. 30 people sick. nine have been hospitalized. hepatitis a is a highly contagious infection that can lead to liver failure and even death. the nation's top health officials have taken notice of the race to save a 10-year-old girl. we first introduced you last weekend to sarah. she was born with cystic fibrosis and needs a lung transplant immediately. but national transplant rules make that very unlikely because sarah's age severely limits her access to adult donors and child donors are very rare. now, health secretary kathleen sebelius asked for a review of those rules. a direct appeal from sarah's congressman who wants sarah to get an adult lung from the next available donor. i spoke yesterday with representative pat and i asked why the rules should be bent for sarah? >> alison, i don't think we need to bend the rules.
3:45 am
this whole system is based on equity so it's fair to all who are in line. but they choose age for a child on an a arbitrary basis. they don't have enough evidence because there aren't enough donors at that age to be able to compile medically significant bases to make this decision. the choice, if she was 12, it wouldn't be an issue. she's almost 11 and doesn't quality. therefore, the standard is arbitrary. because it's arbitrary, it is my opinion as an attorney that it is diskrm criminatory and descr how in the way this policy has been put together. >> secretary cath rene sebelius asked the oregon transplant rules regarding children. it takes as long as two years.
3:46 am
do you see a way to speed up the process? >> it will take two years and it's probably healthy to have a review of this done in a principalprinc principled manner. in light of the fact that the very process of looking at this as a recognition that there is a problem. if you have a problem, you also have to be addressing those matters between the time you resolve the problem and the time that you're aware of it. >> we spoke last week to a doctor on the transplant board and he means bending the rules for sarah means extending the wait for someone else. what do you say to him? he doesn't think it's fair. >> i go back to the word that this is not an exception. this puts sarah in line in her appropriate place in line by virtue of identifying the fact that she's currently in, she's been discriminated against. she's the one who isn't at her
3:47 am
appropriate point in line because they're taking age into the factor inappropriately. she would qualify and take her appropriate place. somebody else that currently is in there may not be in as serious a situation as sarah. but because they are 12 or 13 or 18, they're going to get the lung that we believe sarah has the very legal right to be able to get. >> a milestone on capitol hill. one congressman is on the verge of making history. we're going to tell you who and what he's doing to break a record. plus, madonna and beyonce under the same roof. a star-studded event and it's all to benefit women around the world.
